M alone, May 27. General Starr, of Cincin nati, at 7 o'clock this morning, crossed the line at Trout river and advanced with his command, numbering not more than three hundred, stragglers included, about five hundred yards, when he deployed on the right and left of the road, his extreme right renting on Trout river. lie had not occupied this position long when the British troops and Canadian militia emerged from the woods a little in front, and on the other side of the Fenians. Line ot battle was at once formed by the British, and a sharp steady fire was opened on the Fe nians. There was at the time a small rail fence in front of the latter, which was immediately converted into a sort of a stockade. The Fe nians, who had been told by General Starr to keep up a steady fire for ten minutes, obeyed the orders, ana stopped toe advance or the British. Before the expiration of the ten minutes, the Canadian troops, far outnumbering the Fenians, made a movement as if they intended to flank and capture the invaders, when General Starr formed what may be called a rear guard, and a retreat was ordered. The British continued filing, pressing the Fenians, who managed to maintain comparatively good erder until they reacnea me Ltiiiea states line, wnen a tartin volley was given tbeMJritish, und the "battle" of I rout river was over. Who commanded the British troops is not known. On the Fenian side, under General Starr, were Colonel Robert Cullen, Aid-de-Camp. of Hamilton, Ohio: Major William O'Keefe, Ald- tie-Cnmp; Maior William n. Bhanntrtns. Insnec- tor-General; Major Daniel Sharp, Quartermaster, of Rochester; Colonel William L. Thompson of Albany, uoionei jvi. u jnciu or rmiadefDhla. Colonel Smith of Buffalo, Colonel Campbell of Youngstown, Fa., and Lieutenant-Colonel Marion, of Toledo. The losses are one killed, one wounded, and one missing, who were all in the "Cth Regiment," Colonel Thompson, who does not know the names of his wounded and missing. This preponderance of field officers gives a good insight into the general condition of affairs. There are many more officers than are needed, and not enough men for the work un dertaken. The Fenians had not in the affair to-da3', which is ridiculously dignified as "the battle of Trout river," and have not at their command a single piece of artillery. The Eng lish had a lew pieces, and they were effectively worKta. The men engaged have different views. Some denounce General Starr and others uphold him. Ymt this alternate support and denunciation is the fate of all who have commanded the Fenian "acmv." The men are now loitering about In this place unarmed, without means to procure food or lodgings. They cannot but be suffering, although thev keep up good spirits. Auout 200 Fenian arrived at 2 to-day, and the announcement of the defeat at Trout river and the appearance of affairs here makes them believe that all is over. Central Gleason is in command of the Fcnl ans now, and the United States Marshal has Belied a large quantity of the arms. Their re- cat ture Is suggested, but If such an attempt is made, of course the United States troops will resist, and then comes an end to tne wuoie affair. No amount of money can now prevent the complete if not altogether ignoble defeat of the so-called "invasion of Canada," and if any man intends to come to the front, he will need to supply himself with money enough to obtain food and shelter, and then pay his way back, if he does not care to suffer much, or to live on the bounty of the benevolent. The reckless dash may yet be made somewhere, but the results cannot be altered. Canadian Reports. AKOTIIER FENIAN ARMT ROUTED THEY BKEAK AT THE FIRST VOLLEY NONE OF TUB CANADIANS INJURED ONLY ONE FENIAN KILLED AND ONE TAKEN PRISONER. Toronto, Ont., May 27. Matters in the neighborhood of Huntingdon early this morning asMimed a good deal of interest. Gleason was reported to be in command of the Fenians, who were said to be well armed. The Canadian forces were Immediately assembled, and active preparations were made for a light. Troops were also ordered bacK to rigeoa nm in antici ration of further trouble there. A small force of Fenians has also appeared at Island Pond. All quiet on the Niagara and Detroit frontiers. At a o clocK all tne troops lie re, consisting ot the 69th Regiment of Regulars, the volunteer garrison (artillery and engineers) ot Montreal, and the Huntingdon Battalion, an under com uiand of Colonel Bagot, of the With, made an advance on the Trout river lines, where the Fenians had made a breastwork of rails leading across the field on the north bank of the Trout river. At 8 SO o'clock, Colonel Bagot ordered the Huntingdon olunteers, under command of Colonel McEshern, to deploy across the field. The C'Jth was ordered to advance along the road, and the artillery to cross the river and go up the south bank, ine movement were per formed at once, and the whole line opened lire. The Fenians fled at once, not firing more than twenty shots. The Canadians followed, firing as tney went, until tney reacued tne boundary line, when they stopped. The Fenian officers tried to re-form their men on crossing the line, usdng swords and revolvers, but it was all iu vain; on they rushed to their old camp. oue of the Canadians were hurt, and the Fenians had only a few wounded. One Is said to have been killed, and one was taken prisoner, The United States troops are advanclug from Malone, ami it is said they will take the Fenlaus prisoners before night. The Fenians numbered from 1500 to 2000; the Canadians about 1000. Fclnforcements arrived during the day, among them being Prince Arthur, who caused great enthusiasm by marching to the front with the volunteers. There must now be over 8000 Canadian volun teers and regulars under arms along the Vermont at d Northern Mew iorlc Irontier to Montreal There is some talk of further Fenian opera tions at Cook's Corners, near Figeon Hill, but it is hardly probable, as the whole rabble are utteily demoralized, and fighting more or less ainouir themselves. A report reached here to niht that a Feulan force was gathering on the Detroit river. Ample preparations, however, are made in that quarter. A frigate will reach Quebec to-morrow, hav ing on board the 7btb Regiment from Halifax The Uluht Win. THE FORLORN 1IOPE ON ITS WAY HOME THE WHOLE MOVEMENT ENDED IN VERMONT HOW IT FIZZLED OUT. fiT.Ai Yl MajST.-TUvO'SeUircoiiiB fracas is now a complete failure and entirely at an end. The men have become so disheartened from repeated defeats and from the failure of a realization of the promises of their leaders that they are ready to return bome, swearing they will move in no other direction again, and threatening vengeance on any man who publicly or privately again lisps the word "Fenian" la their bearing. On the election of General Spear to the com mand of men composing the right wing of the army of liberation last night, new confidence seemed to be infused among the rank and file, and early to-day tney again started out tor tne front. The expectation and promise to them were that General Spear would join them a mile or two out of St. Albans at an early hour, when, after partaking of refreshments, which it was understood lie would supply, tney were to march again on Canada, the objective point this time being Figeon Hole, the scene of Gene ral spear s emphatic successes in iw. The men were early ont on the Jlighgato road, and took positions at different points from one to three miles from here, where, hungry and footsore, they awaited the arrival of commander and commissariat. After a tarry of five hours, neither appearing, and the half-starving men having only a cup of water and smoke of tobacco with which to satiate their cravings for food, permitted human nature to get the best of their patriotism, and they declined to further servo in any capacity under such ill-starred leaders such as they had thus far been mad the victims of. About 4 F. M. they started to return. At this hour (10 P. M.) nearly all have arrived back, and are awaiting transportation to their homes. Those who were able to pay their own fare back returned this evening, and a few more, fortunate enough to be able to do bo, will return in the morning under the same auspices. They seemed to scorn the Idea that they are beggars or ob jects of charity. Many others, not so well off in worldly goods, but witn as much pride, nave taken themselves quietly out of town, and en gaged in agricultural or other pursuits, by whieh they hope to acquire funds to enable them to reach their destination without being either pub lic or private debtors. a movement, wnicn migut nave proved un fortunate, was started this morning by Major Moore, of New York. It was to recover the arms of the Fenians taken yesterday by the United States Marshal, Flanagan, under whose care they were being transported here. Ihe idea was to arrest Flanagan, capture the arms, and deal them out again to the men. This projected movement came to the ears of the authorities here, and at once Battery I, of the 5th Artillery, was detailed for special duty, and they started for the front with full company equipage and one hundred rounds of ammunition. They passed out to Franklin in wagons, and the Fenians, as they moved by them, became convinced that turther efforts ou their part would place them between two fires, one, at least, ot wnicn tney did not care to en counter, as they have much more respect for Uncle Sam's neutrality laws than they have for ijruisn bayonets. inis appeared to bo the last feather on the camel's back, and the retreat commenced in good earnest. About 7 SO o clock Generals Meade. McDowell. Ingalls, and Van Vllet arrived here, and took quarters at the Wcldon House. They were waited on this morning by a large number of citizens, to whom they expressed gratification at meeting. To-morrow they will dictate the terms or the United Mates Government to the invaders, and allow them an opportunity to legally desist. Among the arrivals in town to day has been General John Gleason, who left on the noon train for Malone, where he was to take command. It was also rumored, and authoritatively, that the Rebel General Moscby was in town, and that he had organized a band ot men ot one nundred or more strong, who were to move out to-night and inaugurate a guerilla warrare. It is so much like the man that it requires stronger rroot than is in my possession to controvert it. I lie reman oiitcers, disgusted with tne action ot Generals o iSeill and Spear, loudly de nounced the manner in which the movement was conducted, and in the course of their re marks Colonel J. H. Brown, ( f Lawrence, Major H. McGlnnls, of Cambridge, and Captain John Monaban, of Burlington, were arrested, the two former In this village and the latter out on the Ilighgate road while at parade of his men. 1 hey were taken betore Jasper Kand, United States Commissioner, and each held to bail in $5000 for appearance at the District Court in July. None of them could furnish bail. All were taken to apartments at the W eldon House in confinement. Subsequently Monahan's numerous friends succeeded in getting his bail cut down to $1000, which was promptly lurnisned and he was released irom confine ment. Several Fenian stragglers, while on the way in from the front last night, assaulted a eltlzen of Fairfield, and on of them struck him with a sabre, cutting him so badly that hi lite is de spaired of. THE LAST OF LOPEZ Particular of the Last Hours of the Dictator Mow lit Died and Htruauled for IJfe-IIle mother Thanks) Heaven that lie Is Dead Scenes After 111a Death. When Lopez was surprised by the Brazilians he was mounted on a grey horse, and trotted along with two of his aides-de-camp, all the rest of the party going on foot. This was the only time in which the Brazilians surprised the Dictator. The orderly of Colonel Tavari-s, the IiraziHan commander, as socn as he heard that the grey horseman was Lopez, cave nun a mow witn a lance, wnicn wounaea Lopez in the abdomen. At the same time others nred at him and at Itia aides-de camp, one of whom full, having baen wounded In the head. This was Camiuos, one of Lopez's ministers, although wounded again, Lopez continued to ride at half gallop towards the woods nearby. Just at tho entrance of this wood lay a great swamp, wherein the President's horse began tosinK. to avoid any delay in r.is niirnt Lopez dis mounted rapidly, took oil ids blouse, and disappeared among the trees. General Camara was then approaching, and was told by a major that Lopez was there. The general doubted it, out aisuioumeu auu penetrated into tue wood, and lounu Lopez crossing a stream ami eu deavoritig to reach the opposite bauk. General Camara entered the stream, and when at a short distance from Lopez, said to him, "Surrender, mar shal 1 l am tue nrazmau Duuuuauurr. As an answer Lopez nred a snot in tne direction ot Camara, and, as he reached the batik, he fell on his Knees exnausieu. in uaii a minute more camara btood near him, ami ordered a soldier or the Ninth Infantry to disarm Lopez. Lopez did not quietly Burremier, but struggled with the soldier for some 1 imi. At the same moment a soldier or the cavalry came up, aud seeing the hard struggle nred at Lopez, the bun entering ins neart. i ne uiciator iuii uown, auu in ten minutes more wus dead. HOW UK LOOKED WHEN KILLED. When Lopez was killed his feet were la the water, his body lying up the bank of the stream, lie wore blue pantaloons, with a golden stripe, a very tine Milrt-waiid, and melico boou. - His hat had been lost. In the pocket of his wuistcoat a gold watch was found. The pockets of his blouse were also seurcbed, and the only things found were two pen holders, some note paper, and au ivory ring, with the cubtomaty inscription, " I tnarou murir." THB LOl'EZ FaKlLY were going another road In two carts, Mrs. Lynch and children occupying one and Lopez's mother aud bisters another this one being a very rude one, and the ether being escorted by a guard of soldiers. When Lleutenaut-Colonel Martins met Mrs. Lyacu'B i-r.rrlaee. Colonel ranctio Lopez (auout eighteen years old aud a son of the Dictator) did not readily obey the order to surrender, as tne rest oi tne party did, but, with lauces and revolver, offered most serious i e lntance. After some shots had been fired by hi in, Colonel Mai tins exhausted his patience aud killed the vounp man witn nis sword. Then Mrs. Lynch descended from her carriage and laid her sou's daad body on the flout beat of it. Hhe wept bitterly, Invoking "I'anchito! pam-niio ! ana opening his eyes while y ing this. ill, l.jnli wore a bla:L tuliu dse villi UUUiKS sal flounces oj wtu (tUii. Uer hair was dressed as If for a soiree, on one of her fingers glittered four rings which sparkled with diamonds. The mother and sisters of Lopez, when taken, were in one wooden cart, on their knees, thanking Providence for the tyrant's fall. The poor rid Lady Carrlllo was sentenced to death, and Lieu tenant Murizo had received instructions to lance her In case of being overtaken by the enemy. A HORRIBLE 8TORY. It Is horrible to consider the reason why the Dic tator had proposed himself to commit such a nefa rious crime. When Lopez was still at Panadero his mother was accused bra certain woman, the wife of a Marco (who was whipped dally), of having Planned the death of his s?n by means of poison. thst was to be given htm in the form of candy in an approaching festa. Lopez immediately summoned a council, composed of Resqum, Delgadn, Falcon, Cav- alien, president luaez, ana Aiveiro. Every memoir of this so-called council, except one, pronounced the story a mere fabrication; but Lopez, hearing or the resnlt of the Investigation, exclaimed, "Avelro Is rov only friend," and ordered him to collect all evidence bearing on the case. It is useless to say that this infamous a vciro complied witn tne wishes of his master, and did It so strictly that he quite often slapped the lace of the old woman and beat her with his sword, as a consequence or this, Seno rlta Carrlllo was condemned to death, and the roatrlcidal hand of the tyrant appended to the sen tence the cumpras te of his authority. TDK CRUELTY OF LOfEZ TOWARDS HIS MOTHER. It Is believed that this ferocious disposition In the character of Lopez towards his own mother was im pressed on him by the influence of Mrs. Lynch, who could never forgive her disapproval of her (Mrs. Lynch's) relations to her son. This story was re ferred to the Count d'Eu by the lady herself, In the presence of many Brazilian oiticers, soldiers, and a number of Paraguayans. DANCING AROUND LOPEZ'S BODY. A few minutes after the Imprisonment of Mrs. Lynch and the death of her dear Pancho the body of 1 Supremo was brought In. lie had four wounds, and was barefooted ; his feet were the ad miration or inose sarrounaing tne oouv sucn was their delicacy and fineness. While all Brazilians were anxiously contemplating the remnants of the man that for five years had disturbed the peace of four nations for his own selfish sake, some Paraguayan women which accompanied the party began to dance around the body. Colonel i'arannos ordered these furies to get off, and the body to be Interred with that of Pancho, as requested by Mrs. Lynch. Meanwhile Mrs. Lvnen and several urazman omcerscut Looez a hair, the Brazilians dividing it among their friends. A DANGEROUS WOMAN. All officers of the Brazilians agree that Mrs. Lynch is a charming, dangerous woman. The behavior after the death of her paramour has been tempered with a high tone or delicacy and haughtiness. "The mat slial died as a hero and the chief of a State ought to die," said she, when told of the particulars of his death. Mrs. Lynch was sent down to Asuncion on board of the Princeza.

Discounts show no material improvement owlncr to the scarcity of paper, liuslness men teem contented with allowing trade to drag its slow length a-long, and we doubt if loans without interest or discount would impart much vitality to the market; at any rate lenders show no dis position to relax present rates, preferring rather to keen tneir iunus mie.

Washington, May 28. The following are the comments made by Secretary Robeson on the case of Commander Upshur, of the navy, who was recently sentenced by a court-martial to be reprimanded for purchasing a cadetship for his son: 'This is a case of extraordinary and unprece dented character. The facts set forth In the charge and specifications were first discovered and dis closed by a Congressional Investigation. The Inves tigation and discovery of similar transactions between otner parties leu to tne expulsion 01 one member of Congress, the resignation of others, and the passage of a resolution by the House of Repre sentatives requesting the Secretary of the Navy to convene a court-martial ror the trial or Commander Vpshur for 'conduct unbecoming an otllcer.' In compliance with that request this court was con vened, and Commander Upshur has been tried. The case is, tnereiore, quite unexampled in its origin. It is equally so In the character of the accusation prepared. The purchase and sale of appointments and commissions are familiar transactions in the army and navy of other countries, hut a-e unknown to our military or naval service. Here every mili tary and naval nomination, appointment, or com mission enouiii tie maue auu comerreu as a reward of merit, or as a means of advancing the public Inte rests by opening an honorable career to pure aud nonoranie men. "The Navy Department would not represent faith fully the toue aud spirit of the navy were It less nronmt than the Bouse of Representatives to in quire into every charge of venality and corruptlou, or less certain when discovered to Inflict the pre. cribed punishment upon the offender. "Tne secretary 01 tne iMavy.tnereiore, as requested by the House of Representatives, convened a court for the trial of Commander Upshur. A court com posed of intelligent and distinguished officers, allot whom were senior In rank to the accused, and hav iBg produced before that court all procurable proof In support of the charge and specifications, is now called upon to revise its proceedings, nnuing, ana sentence. "After careful examination and consideration of the facts and law, the Secretary has determined to approve tne proceedings ana nnaing 01 tne court, and to carry Its sentence Into execution. "The court has stricken out 01 tne specmcations. as 'not proved,' an tne allegations or corrupt intent on the part of the accused. Commander Upshur is, therefore, to be considered as not guilty of any such intention. His guilt, as found by the court, constats in the navment of nionev intended as the considera tion for services rendered In procuring the appoint ment of his son to the Naval Academy. This the court, composed of ills brother otlluers, consider 'conduct unbecoming an officer.' They so declare by their findings, and the Secretary of tho Navy concurs in the opinion. Appointments to the service may not proper.'y be obtained by such means, and the navy at least must neither be, nor seem to be, In any way connected with the employment or them. "It Is of the utmost Importance to tho character and efficiency of any military service that Its tone should be maintained at the highest standard of per sonal and professional honor, and particularly that It should be invariably regarded and treated by all connected with it as entirely above and discon nected from mercenary Influences of any kind. The use of such influences under any circumstances of Inducement by a naval otllcer to procure an appoint ment to the Naval Academy Is calculated to lower the tone of the service, when It should be highest and purest, and countenance or excuse of such action by his brother officers or by the department would bring the navy Into deserved discredit. It Is honed that the expression of these views by the court to the department will serve to Illustrate the true character or sucn conduct, ami oe sufficient to prevent any future resort to purchased services to obtain either nominations, appointments, or privi leges in the service. "This order will be taken as the reprimand pro vided by the sentence of the court, and will be read at the various Navy Yards and stations, and on board of all ships of war in commission. "UBOKOB At.

In tho Presbyterian AEsembly yesterday the Judicial Committee made a majority and minority report on the overture from Montgomery, Alabama. The majority report favors tho appointment of a commltteo of conference, with Instruction that the difficulties which lie in their way of a cordial correspondence between tho two bodies must be . distinctly met and removed. One of tho resolu tions of the majority report says that they must purge themselves of error in regard to political utterances, deliberately pronounced year aftec year, and which in our. opinion was a sad betrayal of the cause and kingdom of our com mon Lord and Head, nor can we by official cor respondence consent to blunt the edge of this our testimony concerning the naturo and mission of the Church as a purely spiritual body among men. After some debate tho majority report was adopted. FROM EUROPE. This ITIorntuc's Uuototloas. London, May 28 Noon. Consols for money, 94?;, and for account, V4?t'(a.94. American securi ties steady.
