By Ok Anglo-American Cable. Queenbtown, March 10 The missing steam ship City of Boston, which left Now York January 25, arrived here at 1 o'clock this morn ing. second despatch. London, March 162 P. M. The steamship City of Boston, Captain Halcrow, which left New York on the 25th of January and Hall fax throe days afterwards, arrived at Queens town at 1 o'clock this morning, having conse quently been out of eight of land for more than forty-five days. The news has created the most profound ex citement both here and at Liverpool, where the public interest has been worked up to an intense pitch. Business at this hour is almost entirely suspended in the Stock Exchange and general markets in both cities, in the eagerness to gather particulars, which are as yet entirely wanting. The telegraph lines are not working well to-day owing to the prevalence of a storm. The Inman steamer City of Antwerp, which left New York on the 5th lnst., arrived at Qucenstown at half-past 4 this morning. This eels at rest the apprehensions expressed in some quarters that the first announcement of the arrival of the City of Boston was a mistake for the City of Antwerp. A Contradiction of the Report. New York, March 10. The reported arrival of the steamship City of Boston at Queenstown this morning is false. The following cable telegram has just been received herefrom the London agent of the New York Associated Press: London, March 16 2 30 P. M An inquiry addressed by me to the agents of the Inman Steamship Line is answered at 140 P. M. to the effect that they have no information whatever of the City of Boston, and that the current rumor of her arrival is doubtless a heartless Loax. (Signed), A. C. Wilson, Agent Associated Press. Still Another Contradiction. Messrs. J. G. Dale & Co., No. 406 Chesnut street, the agents of the Inman line in this city, have also been advised, by telegraph, of the falsity of the report that the City of Boston bad arrived at Qucenstown. Description of the Vessel-Her Ofllcera and Paaaenuer LJata. The following particulars of the long-missing steamer will be read with renewed interest at this time: The steamer City of Boston was built at Glas gow in 1805. She is very symmetrical in her lines, and built for carrying rather than speed; he is by no means a "wet boat," in marine par lance. She measures 825 feet on deck, 40 feet moulded beam, and 28 feet hold. She is 2300 tons builder's measurement. She has two engines f S00 nominal horse-power, and four boilers, and is furnished with a donkey boiler and engine, and a number of pumps to be used in cose of accident to her hull, or in case of fire. To give strength and tenacity to her hull, she has deck stringers of broad steel plates, and her sheer strakes consist of double plates of the same metal. She is divided transversely by seven water-tight bulkheads, five of which run up through the passenger deck to the spar-deck of the vessel, which thus divides her into eight water-tight compartments. Her house, built on the main deck, runs from stem to stern, the upper portion forming a promenade deck. All of the after-part of the ship from the engine room is for the accommodation of first-class passengers, and contains a saloon 60 feet in length and 13 feet wide, and a lower saloon fit ted up with state rooms capable of accommo dating over 100 first-class passengers. The steerages and second eabin are forward of the engine, and are well lighted and well ventilated. She has ten first-class life-boats, - all in good order and easy to be launched.

The following documents have just been pub lished. It would seem from them that Que sada's present visit to this country is not alto gether a voluntary one: Citizen President: In compliance with the dictates of my conscience, which requires me to act always In the way most conducive to the welfare of my country, and believing that there should not be at the head of the army one who does not deserve the confidence of the people's representatives, owing to the countless evils which bis continuation would bring on the army, as well as the country; moreover, thoroughly convinced, as well by recer.t events as by what has becu taking place for some time back, that I do not command the confidence of the Cham ber, I have the honor of placing in your bauds the formal resignation which I make of the delicate charge of General-in-Chief of the Libe rating Army which the Government of the re public had conferred upon me. General M. Quksada. On the same day I received from that en lightened body the two replies following: Cuban Rkitbi.ic, Chamber op Representatives.

This order is made known to you that its purpose may be accomplished. God, our country, ana lioerty. Miuuel G. Gutierrez, Speaker. Rafael Morales, Secretary. Palo Quemado, December 17, 18G9. To these I replied as follows: Horcon de Najasa, Dec 18, 1S69 Citizen Presi dent of the Republic: Under one cover 1 have this day received by post two communications, dated yesterday, from the Chamber of Representatives. In one of them I am notltled of the resolution of the Government to remove me from command as General-in-Chief, aud am ordered to hand over headquarters to the chief of staff, Geueral Thomas Jordan. In the other receipt Is acknowledged of uiy official note, also dated yesterday, resigning the post oi nonor wuicn i nan neia id accordance wicn tne aspirations of my consclenee, and the declaration Is made that, even had my resignation reached that assembly before the adoption of said reso lution, It would not have had the least Influence on the adoption of that resolution. It being established, then, that my resignation was presented before the document deposing me was promulgated, and without my suspecting even that such resolve was under consideration, my honor Is wounded by tnis reiusai to accept my resignation, out above all by the express terms of the refusal whleh I have quoted. 1 confess this conduct towards me on the part or tne powers or uuoan government, whoso prestige 1 have always secured, and would even at this moment wish to see In the highest decree of splendor, Is painful to me. However, the superior orders contained In the commuuicatlon first alluded to have been obeyed on my part. GENERAL JU. tUESADA. THE GOLD EXCHANGE. A New War to Ben.r, the Market The opnruuona ol i merdar. The business at the Gold Exchange reeterdav was not very brisk, and the changes were with out special note. Gold opened at 111 and sold up to 114 about it o ciock, alter which there was a'decline, followed by a subsequent advance, the market closing very firm at 1136. After the close of the board there was very little business done, and the price was steady at lll'j:ail2. The clearances for Monday, re ported yesterday, were $1)2,187,000. About v o cjock yesteraay morning a enquo of brokers, Intent upon fun, captured a bear of huge proportions, whlcti was being exhibited by his keeper in New street, near the Exchange, and, with the aid of his master, succeeded in introducing him to the Gold Kooui, where were congregated a large number of operators actively engaged in "bearing'' the market. Bruin sur veyed the scene calmly, and then, following the example of some human "bears" when tbey want to operate with vigor, made a rush for the ring, whloh he seemed to consider his exclusive domain. He cleared the arena at once just as other "bears" sometimes do when tbey are very strong and fierce and had the market all to himself. He promenaded the pre cinct sacred to gold for a few minutes, and then imitated the other "bears" by leaping upon the railing and cutting up other antics suitable to his bearish nature. The brokers who were enjoying the sport needed only a real bull to make the entertainment per fect, and in default of an animal induced his keeper to engage in a little friendly set to. This was done to the immense delight of a multitude of brokers and spectators, who bod been sum moned thither by the novel spectacle, and the contest was kept up for Bonie time the bear at last coming out victorious. The keener was re warded for his trouble with a small hatful of stumps, and led his pet away. The busluess of the Exchange was then returned, but the effect f the bear's visit seemed to be felt all da v. Not withstanding strenuous efforts on the part of the "bulls" to put up the price, it would not "stay put" for any length of time. JV. Y. Tin$ to-day. AftOl'HER MYSmtV OF Til! SI) V. An Iron-clad, wllh nil on Honr.l, .Mlanlnc-lla Hie (June Down? Wbilo both the Old and New Worl la arc anxiously watching, the Atlantic and grasping at every floating spar for tldiims of the long utiv.ut City of Boston, there comes a cry from a hun dred families for some word from another richly freighted ship that has now been gone three months. About the 1st of December tho iron-clad At lanta, or Triumph, us she was last christened, left Philadelphia lor Port-au-Prlmtn. 8h0 had been purchased by the then existing Salnavo Government of Ilayti, and was ollleerod by young meu, nearly ail of whom had fonnorly belonged to the United 8tate Navy. She had two llaytlen Senators ou board, the wife of ttio coniniBmliug ollicer, and a crow of over a hun dred men recruited iu Philadelphia, making lu all one bnndrcd aud twenty souls. Since tho day she steamed down tho Delaware ; to Ibo wcean on htr voyage to tho West Indies j nothing bad been received f.-om any ouo u ' board. Some time ago there was a report pub- j llt-hed lhat the Atlanta had heen wrecked on 1 Fortune Island, but that statement was subse quently denied, and the friends of tho mining vesn-1, in the absence of all intelligence from her, afu r waiting many weeks, have boon ru- , ducrd to the last extremity of hope for the safe- ! ty of those on board. It Is possible that she may have been wrecked ' on Kinie lonely, uninhabited island, and that her officers and crew are still existing upon it, waiting for a passing sail, but the uufltucss of , the heavily-plated hulk for encouutering tho j storms of tho ocean gives rise to tho most : gloomy apprehensions that she has foundered ! ami gone aown wiiu every soui. The numerous marine news agents on tho Atlantic coast and In the West Indies are all on the lookout for some key to tho mystury of the absent vessel, and it is not improbable that her survivors may yet be found. As so many per sons arc seeking news of the iron-clad at this ofllcc, all ship-masters who may read this in tho Gulf or among the Islands should forward promptly to the Herald whatever information they may possess tending to throw light upon tho Atlanta's fat. N. Y. Ilvrald of to-day. RAILROAD AC'CIDKX f . Two Coachra filled with l'neiiers Thrown limn nn K'libmikiiieut. The Dubuque (Iowa) Times of March 11 says: One of the most serious railroad accldculs that we have been called upon to note for some time past occurred on the Iowa Division of tho Illi nois Central Railroad about ouo o'clock yester day morning, the particulars of which, so near as we have been able to gather them from the wild and exaggerated rumors related upon the street, being as follows: About midway be tween Manchester and Masouvillc is a hollow, the filling of which is fifteen feet high, laid with new iron. Passenger train No. 4, bound for Debuiitto, John Doherty. conductor, and Ed. Davenport, engineer, consisting of a baggage, two passen ger coaches, and a sleeping car, had reached this point, running at a speed of fifteen or eighteen miles an hour, when a broken rail was encountered, and in a moment's time the com plete train was wrecked- Tho two passenger cars were thrown clear from tho track and rolled down the embankment, end over end, at its highest point, the rear car finally lauding on the top of the other, while the sleeping car was turned completely round, but still remained on the track. These were filled at the time of the accident with m u, women, and children, aud the scene of terror and confusion that ensued may be imagined, while many of the unfortu nate inmates were severely Injured. Throe men had their arms and legs broken, and a lady with a small child was so severely hurt, her collar bone being fractured, that her life is despaired of. That all were not killed outright would seem to bo a miracle. LBQAL laSTTBIiEIPHlffCia. 8500 Worth ol Libel-Home islander Also. A'ii Prius Judge Read. In the case of John Sellinder vs. Charles E. School, which was an action to recover damages for a libel published in tho paper of whleh the defendant was editor, before reported, tho jury rendered a verdict for the plaintiff for $500. . Evan T. Knight vs. Manuel McShano. This is an action of slander to recover damage for an alleged false and malicious accusation of theft made by the defendant against the plain tiff. It appears that the latter was employed upon a houte in course of erection by the de fendant, who said he stole a portion or tho lum ber in order to use it upon an adjoining house, which be, the plaintiff, was putting up for a third party. On trial. Sentence of Itlarley. XT. 8. Dintrict Court Judge Cadusalader. Patrick Marley.who was recently convicted of an attempt in the capacity of revenue ollicer to compound a seizure, was this morning sentenced to six mouths' imprisonment and a Hue of iUOJO, or an additional imprisonment of one month. Important Decision. Recently a decision was given in the Supreme Court at Washington, D. C, which will bo very beneficial to soldiers discharged for sickness from the United States army. It was in the case of an appeal from the Court of Claims: A judgment was given for the claimaut below of $100, thinned as bounty for enlisting In the volun teer service. The claimant was a private lu the Fif teenth lteglment of Massachusetts Volunteers, buing enrolled and euterlng the service about the 12th of July, lfcol, and was discharged ou a surgeon's certifi cate OI aisauuny irom BicMieHs uuuuary o, ims. The bounty sought was by General Orders from the War Department or May 'A resting for their autho rlty on the proclamation of the President issued May 8, 1MS1. Bv these orders, every man who entered the service under them was promised, when honorably discharged, the sum of $100; but the act of Congress ol July Tl, ratifying this act of the Presideut, gave a bounty of $100 to soldiers honorably discharged, and provided they should have served two years. (Subse quent acts removed the two years' restriction as to soldiers discharged for wounds, but not as to sol dlt rs discharged for sickness. Hence the Treasury Department refused payment In this class of cases. The Court of Claims held the President's proclama tion on the one side and the enlistment ou the other to have established a contract, under which the claimant was entitled to tho bounty promised, he having been honorably discharged, no matter from what cause : and the Judgment was accordingly. The Government appeals, contending, II rut, that the case does not show that the regiment into which the claimant enlisted was ever accepted Into the ser vice of the United States as one or the six regiments apportioned to Massachusetts under the proclama tion; aud, In the second place, that the act of Congress passed subsequently to the Issue of tlia order under which the claimant enlisted, ratified and made valid the engagements eutered into on behalf of the United Stales by the Presideut only so fur as those engagements were comportable with the provisions of that statutes, aud no further. Consequently, the claim In this case being excluded by the statute, is not valid, because, as to It, the President's act was uot ratified, and rendered legal. The vlaiiuaut contends that eullstments are con tracts, and are to be construed like other contracts. The contract In this case is embraced In the procla. niatlou and tho subsequent enlistment, and this, belug In writing, cannot be limited by any restrlc tiuns raised by implication and not therein con tained. A prumlse of $to0 "when honorably dls charged" does not mean "when honorably discharged for wounds," or "when honorably discharged after two years' service." Discharge on a surgeon's certificate Is as much an honorable dis charge as discharge for wounds; and a discharge after several mouths' service Is as honorable as a discharge after two years' service, If a man's consti tution gave way under the exposure and hardships of a cHuiputgn life aud he became unlit to remain lunger. In any of these cases Government uses him as long as he can work, aud dually terminates the contractor Us own choice. The Presideut Issuing these orders through the Secretaiyof War, had a right to promise this allowance, there being no pre vious law on the subject. The emergency Justified the President In Issuing the proclamation for volun teers at the time, wbeu otherwUe the nation might have perished, and if be had authority to call out the troops he certainly had authority to stipulate as to their payment.

Pottsvu-le, Pa., March 1(5 The eighty-third session of this vencrablo body of Christian ministers assembled this morning lu tho M. E. church of this town. Since Monday evening strangers have been coming by every train. The committee of clergymen appointed at tho last session to examine young ministers who are applicants for holy orders were In session all yestcrdav and Monday evening. Tho examina tions were generally satisfactory, and elicited a very commendable degree of literary and theo logical attainments. Tho attendance of minis ters Is large, being not far from two hun dred. Tho division of the conference two years ago aud tho formation of the Wilmington Conference reduced tho numbers about oue-thlrd, but it still remains a very im posing body. Tho main question of public In terest at this session, we suppose, will bo the vote of tho ministry on lay delegation In the General Conference. That measure having re ceived a large majority of all the votes cast by the laity, It now awaits tho approval of three four lbs of all the mluldters of tho several annual conferences. So far as tho vote has been taken in the conferences which havealready been held, the requisite number have voted iu favor. Citi zens iu this community of all religious denomi nations have vied with each other In opening their homes for the entertainment of the con ference. Rev. Bishop Simpson, who presides at this session of tho Conference, is tho guest of Hon. Benjamin Haywood, who is the generous host of several other clergymen. The apoointmcuts of the preachers at this scssioH will be another item of interest to tho noble aud self-sacrificing ministers to bo changed and tho churches which they aro appointed to serve. About twenty congregations in your city will apply for change, nearly all of whom are com pelled to part with their pastors beeauso of the expiration of the maximum time of ministerial service, viz., three years. Such is the inconvenience aud disadvantage of Feveraucc of the pastoral relation that It cer tiauly ought never to be done except where there is a clear necessity, and that is but seldom. At its last session this Conference had 210 travelling preachers, 253 local preachers, 31,537 members in full connection, 200 churches, valued at $1,908,230; 02 parsonages, valued at $25(5,010, and SOS Sunday Schools, with 459,097 scholars.

Mr. Kutau moved its committal to the Finance Committee. Disagreed to. Tbo Senate bill to aid In the construction of a railroad from tbe Susquehanna river to Buffalo was reported favorably with an amendment. This amendment is intended to secure the com pletion of the Clearfield and Buffalo, the Erie and Alleghany, and the Pittsburg, Virgluia, and Charleston Railroads, by giving them the use of the Allegheny Valley Railroad bonds of the par value of $3,500,000, now in the State Treasury, in exchange for their own bonds, which shall bear the same rate of Interest and mature at tbe same time as the Alleghany bonds, and the com pletion of tho roads and the interest shall be guaranteed by responsible railroad companies. House. Mr. Adaire offered a resolution paying the Clerk of the House Treasury Investigating Committee $000. Mr. Brown made an unsuccessful attempt to reduce the amount to $400. Passed. The Philadelphians voting for $600 were Messrs. Adaire, Albright, Buun, Cloud, Comly, Dailcy, Bavis, Elliott, Forsyth, Hong, Johuson, Josephs, Maxwell, Mooney. Absent or not voting: Messrs. Thomas, Stokes, Miller. Mr. Mooney offered a resolution paying Thomas W ilson, Sergeant-at-Arms, $337 IK), for witnees fees aud services rendered in attending the Police Bill Investigation Committee. Mr. Davis inquired how many witnesses had been sworn. Mr. Bunn replied that about four had been sworn, but that some thirty or forty had been subpoenaed. Mr. Davis Why were tho rest not sworn ? Mr. Bunn did not think that tho Scrgeant-at-Arms should suffer for tho neglect of others. The witnesses had been subptenaed, but the committee bad failed to obtain a quorum. Mr. Davis said it was not rig at for tho Homo to pity any bill until it was itemized, and then It should only pay for tho witnesses who wero sworn und no more. Mr. Elliott was one of tho unfortunates who had been a member of tho Police Bill Investiga tion Committee. The committee bad under taken to meet once a week, but has failed to obtained their quorums. The Sergetvnt-at-Arms, however, had attended to bis duty,) and was clearly entitled to his pay, although ho, Mr. Elliott, knew nothing about the amount of the bill. Mr. Reinoehl said that this wholo affair was an illustration of the tremendous frauds result ing from tho appointment of investigating com mittees. If tho committee had never had a quo rum, by what authority had tho chairman issued subiia-nas ? Mr. Elliott replied that the committee had had one meeting, at which there had been a quorum. Mr. Itclnocbl said that there had beed an un derstanding when the committee was appointed that no expense should accrue to the State.) Mr. Brown had offered tho original resolution appointing tho committee, and there had been a provision thut there should be no expense to the State. He asserted that there had never been an order issued to the chairman to have a single witness subpuenacd; tbe gentleman who had assumed to be chairman bad taken it upon himself. The committee had been turned into a farce, and this resolution for pay should be voted down. Mr. Elliot said that the gentleman from Clarion (Brown) bad never met the committee after tbe first session. It had met, organized, aud directed its chairman to issue subpoenas to certain parties, some of whom were examined. Mr. Brown moved to postpone the subject for tho present, and to require the bill to be item ized, which was agreed to by a standing vote of 40 aves to 14 nays. Among the noes the Phila delphians were Stokes, Elliot, and Bunn. A certain bill was Introduced into the House lost Monday by Mr. Dlmnikk, authorizing the Seuddcr's Falls WntertCompany to maintain dnm, etc.. across tho Delaware river, abov Trenlou. This bill had originally been reported by the Speaker pro tern., Duluis, to the Local Judiciary Committee, but had af.erwards been Bi nt to the Corporation Committee Mr. Beans moved that the bill be sent back to the Local Judiciary, and said that he under stood the Corporation Committee had already appointed a sub-comuilttce to goto Philadel phia and Investigate. Ho (Beans) had a strong suspicion that there would be an attempt to bleed somebody. Mr. Steele, of Schuylkill, denied that there was to be any visit to Philadelphia. On tho debate whleh ensued Mr. Davis took occasion to say that he would oppose any mea sure which would in any way effect the water supplies of Philadelphia. This point he in sisted on with much earnestness. Mr. Beans opposed fbe Scuudors Falls bill s being very injurious to his constituents. Ilia motion to change its reference was lost. FINANCE ANI COWJIUIKUE Ottick or tbh rvcwiwii Tt. -.e I Wednesday. March Id, 1870. I There is a moderate degree of activity lu the money market, but not equal to the average at this period ot the year, aud loans continue easy. Some of the banks, however, we notice are shortening sail by calling in their loans with a view of obtaining better terms than 4 per cent. This is doubtless owing to the nsnal demand which springs up about this time from tho agri cultural districts. We quote money on call at 5 per ccut. with good collateral, aud prime mercantile paper at 6 (a 8 per cent., according to credit.
