The raid of 1870 may be aid to be over now that the United States have ntcrfcred. It bears a strong family likeness to ts predecessor of 1800, although in some re- pects better managed. The preceding feint of . month nsro, which caused so much flutter. tuch suspensions of habeas corpus, such order ing of volunteers to the front, and which finally nuueed people to relax their vigilance ana enialn unconcerned wuen ine real "won' urncd up, is precisely like the feint of March, 800. The real attack on the 25th of May was iwn brother to the Sunday evening on the 1st it June, 1800. There was the pamo garnering oi the clans at fclalono and Buffalo, the same general cleaning tut of restaurants along the railway line, the fame tumultuous advance into Canada for a few (yards, followed by a neutrality proclamation, fihe arrest of the leader, a short skirmish, and a most ignoble and disorderly flight. And so long s there are gullible chambermaids, so long will reland be "liberated by flank movements on iinchinbrook, by massacre of poultry, and by onfiscation of stray table cutlery, without any idee consideration as to whether the hens and poons are on one side of the line or the other. In one respect this raid has been rather more succceslul tu an us predecessor tno talkative leaders kept rather more quiet than is their wont, and so got a good start. Generally summed up, the results are small. The Fenians did a little a very little plunder ing, burned a house or two, were badly punished by the volunteers and home-guards, lost seven Or eight killed and some twenty wounded, and then incontinently took to to their heels, strew ing the roads with breech-loaders, uniforms, and other impediments to their illirut. The Canadians will be put to an expense, directly, of $100,000 or so, but beyond loss of time, de rangement of business, considerable inconve nience, and some damage to property on the ironticr, a lew 6iignt wounds, and an able bodied scare, they have not suffered The volunteers came out enthusiastically and in good number, despite the universal distrust which they feel toward the niggardly and job bing bureau which manages them. Home guards were formed in the cities to replace them, and independent companies mustered alter tno man ner of Concord and Lexington in the districts directly menaced. It was demonstrated to the ample conviction ot every one, save intentional tools and Knaves use toe t enlau tile and leaders, that Canada can successfully resist any attack made upon her, and that the invaders have to expect no sympathy from the people among whom they come. une or two incidents ot the raid are interest- ling.

The leading Fenian sympathizers in Canada re beyond measure disgusted with O'Neill's mis nanagement, and declare that they will never aise a Hand or contribute a cent to help on such impracticable projects. They are convinced hat snch a raid can never succeed, and that, if Ob'Neill wants to do damage to Canada, his only plan is to try email cavalry raids on outlying villages and unguarded public works.

Address Iron the Philadelphia Central Office. The Executive Committee of the Executive yJouncll of the Fenian Brethernood have held a meeting, and issued the following address con- teeming the recent raid: Central Office, Fenian Bkotheruood. No. 409 Cuesnut Street, Philadelphia, May S. 1870 To the members oi tne Fenian Bro Jlierhood, and the friends of Irish freedom It in nroner at this time, when the public mind U unsettled by tne coniusion oi ideas, and the con i- - . . . I" . . . . tact bctwten trutn and laisenooii, engendered by misrepresentations, that those iu whom power as well as confidence has been vested -could speak for the irisu .Nationalists, and set Le sentiment of the community right, particu larly that of the American people, whose sym pathies are always with the oppressed. If the ate lamentable failure, involved in the attack upon the British territory, had been brought .bout by those to whom the organization intrusted the sacred duty of watching, waiting, and preparing for an opportunity to aid the oppressed people of Ireland to regaiu their rights, then, indeed, those who have undertaken this work might hang their heads in shame aad despair of success. But the true state or the ruse is otherwise. However much we may de- ilore the evil consequences of the usurpations fetich have occasioned the loss of life and alnable war material, and the sacrifice of a land opportunity as well aa oi the result oi years of patient toil and preparation the Issue of this movemcnthas demonstrated the propriety of the action of the legitimate authority of the reman Brotherhood, who warned the people not to be drawn into an attempt which was never sanctioned by them, because it had not been based upon preparations sufficient to warrant the ex pectation oi success, But while the laiiure ot this expedition has proved the wisdom of those who foresaw the disastrous results, it has also proved the readiness of the Irish people to make every sacrifice that could be demanded of them upon even the bare chance of advancing in any way the cause of their country. The patriotism they have exhibited needs only con centration upon the object to be attained to develop a power which nothing can oppose: but that power can only be successfully applied by means of thorough organization and obedience to the rules, upon which the stability of all or ganizations depends. The past history ot the fenian urotnernoou teaches that all the evils from which it has suf fered, and the losses thereby entailed upon the cause ol Ireland, have flowed trom departure from this rrinclnlc. and from resistance to the laws which the prople themselves had made for their government. To remedy these evils and obviate the danger of their repetition, an imme diate return to that principle ot obedience and discipline, in which alone safety can be found, is absolutely necessary. The members of the organization are therefore required to comply with the provisions of the constitution, and place their circles forthwith in direct communi cation with the central office of the brotherhood. Measures have been taken to secure, as far as possible, the property of the organization from loss or destruction, and the results, as soon as ascertained, will be communicated officially. in the meantime the members ot the i enlau Brotherhood should bear in mind that as the attempt of General O'Neill upon the Canadian territory was undertaken against the author ity of the Brotherhood, its failure cannot be iecognizcd as a defeat of the national organi zation, and that the efforts which England has been compelled to put forth to meet this attack, ill-timed and ill-advised as it was, only showed how much she would have to dread from a com bined and well-matured movement of the Irish people under competent military leaders. ine miscononctoi a lew irreeponsibie men may have postponed for a short period the day of Ireland s deliverance; but the 6acred duty of accomplishing that deliverance can never be ignored by our people; it shall not now be abahdoned even for a day by those who have put their hands to the work, and the events of the past few months prove conclusively that neither knavery nor statecraft can avail to pre vent the advent of the glorious day of Irish independence.

The Anniversary of the Oxford Presbyterian Church Sabbath School took place yesterday afternoon, and was a very spirited affair as well as a most decided success. The pastor of this Broad street enterprise, Iter. H rank L. Uobblns, evinced his usual enthusiasm and appreciation of the interesting and novel exercises. The singing, under the leadership of Mr. T. Raw- lings, was much better and more artistic than is cenerallv found in the schools of this cltv. the Scriptural recitations, led by the superinten dent, were prompt and unanimous, and every other feature of this fourth anniversary occa slon exhibited admirable taste and great labor and preparation. From the secretary's report we learn that during the past year fourteen of the pupils have joined the church, and one death occurred, mere are 44 classes in the school and 581 scholars, with an average at tendance of 33 teachers and 283 scholars. The scholars recited 24,289 verses of Scripture to their teachers. A large addition has been made to the library, numerous improvements have been made, and the operations of the school greatly extended since the preceding annlver sary, so as to accommodate the rapid increase in the scholars seeking admission to the school. which is in quite a flourishing condition, with a debt of only 48-42.

The decoration cere monies at Arlington Cemetery to-day were very impressive. The graves are upon the old Ar lington estate, at one time the property and residence of General Robert E. Lee, the Rebel chieftain. The ceremonies consisted of a prayer by the Rev. Dr. Newman, an original poem by ex-Lieutenant-Governor Cox, of Maryland, the singing of the grand choral Eln Fate Burg ist unscr Gott, and an oration by General John A. Logan. The chorus was rendered by 500 voices, accompanied by the Marine Band of Washing ton, and was strikingly effective. The entire ceremonlea were under the direction of the Grand Army of the Republic, of which General Logan is commander-in-chief. The only draw back to the celebration was the damp condition of the ground, arising from the recent con tinued rains, but the weather, although the sky was clouded, was warm and pleasant. The fol lowing is Goneral IOKan's Oration. Fellow-citizens and Comrades: Another year has rolled away into the deep bosom of eter nity, carrying with it all its joys and heartaches, all its pleasures and pains. Another year nave our heroic dead slumbered in their graves, while we have been enjoying the boon which they have purchased with their lives. The day has arrived which first was dedicated by the Grand Army of the Republic to the memory of their shun comrades, and soon cneeriuuy and univer sally adopted by the loyal American people, to bow before their sacred shrines. Silence, per haps, would better befit such an occasion than all the words a mortal tongue can pronounce, for great thoughts and emotions of the soul disdain the thraldom 01 language. Yonder sleeps the Father of our Country, who struck from our hands the shackles of foreign allegiance and oppression! Hero rest those who sealed tne covenant 01 ireeuom witn tneir blood, and broke asunder the chains and fetters of internal bondage and slavery 1 Can we for get those dead who perished to save us and ours from defeat and misery forget the mar tyrs of freedom, who offered their own lives upon the altar of liberty? Nol never, while memory retains her powers or the heart beats with a single impulse of love and gratitude ! Comrades, can we forget those partners in the toils and hardships of war who fell at our side, and with their fast-failing breath whispered dying messages of love in our ears for the dear ones at home ? No ! no ! those dying words are links of sympathy which no time can sever! When many a subsequent incident of our lives shall have been swept away in the ocean of the past, those dying accents will ring as clear in the recesses of our memory as if they were but of yesterday. And although the forms in those graves are mouldering to dust in 6ilent gloom, their features are chiseled upon the tablets of our hearts, and there we shall keep them changeless and indelible until our pulses cease to beat forever. Let no one imagine that these comrades are forgotten because their forms are hidden beneath the ground. This Memorial Day, on which we decorate their graves with the tokens of our love and affection, is no idle ceremony with us to pass away an hour; but it brings back to our mind in all their vividness the fearful conflicts of that terrible war in which they fell as victims. This demonstration with us is no mere formal act, obliterated as soon as we leave this sacred spot. It is a holy ovation when we strew our floral offerings upon the graves and freshen them with the dew of our tears. Each solemn tear thus dropped in sympathy upon this cold sod swells anew our hearts with indignation against the hand of treason that dipped its weapons in their blood. Nor are we alone in our emotions. The aged father, as he poses his wreath with quivering hand upon the mound that covers his beloved son, mourns with heavy heart. The lonely mother, kneelirg by the grave of her darling boy, recalls, in faithful remembrance, that face once buoyant with health, that form once the staff of her widowhood, and weeps with us in silent bitterness. The sisters, gathering around the last resting-place of a dear brother, once the joy and pride of their heart, the support and defense of their lives and honor, link-their grief with ours. Surely this Is a day of deep solemnity; a day on which the nation lays aside the garments of busy life and fashion, and, attired in the weeds of mourniBg, gathers around the graves of her fallen sods, and laments with bitter tears over her loss. And these tears, shed in true affection for the sleeping heroes, and in gratitude for the sacri fice they have rendered for our welfare, are more precious than the richest diamonds and rarest pearls deposited in the ancient catacombs. Let us, then, all unite in the solemn feelings of the hour, and tender with ' our flowers the warmest sympathies of our souls ! Let us revive our patriotism and love of country by this act, and strengthen our loyalty by the example of the noble dead around us. Throughout the broad compass ef our land to-day vast concourses of true men and women are voluntarily assembled to pay deserved homage to the nation's heroic dead, and to gar land llieir quiet tombs with nature's jewels, as an appropriate tribute of respect and gratitude. But why is it that the great masses on this day pass by many graves, the occupants of which they nave loved and honored in life, and with a singular unanimity seek our soldiers' graves alone? The answer of the heart rushes 11 n to the lins in the simple but Dathetic re sponse: "They fell in defence of our comnaon country, for the preservation of our free Gov ernment, and the perpetuation of our national unity." Will be who comprehends the meaning of the phrase "My country he in whose breast spark of patriotism burns asK lor a reason more ample than this ?. O ye nohlo dead 1 ye tainted martyrs ! what a weight, what a depth of meauiuer that simple phrlse, "My country." had for you! Ye measured its depth with your lives; ye counted its value with the drops of your blood. Let not fttm try to survey the length and the breadth of these words who thinks of his country only as of the market for his bargains ! Let not him aspire to appreciate them whose idea aennes his country as the mere province which owes him office of honor and profit! Let not him assume to understand their meaning who considers a dishonorable peace preferable to a dearly-bought victory; not him who would rather shake Hands with a living coward than weep for a dead hero: not him who loves comfort and ease more than truth and justice! These notjie dead slumbering in these hal lowed grounds, and many thousands of like martys scattered over the wide area ol onr land. have listened to their country's outcry in the lime 01 iicr neeo; mey nave answered the call for help in the moment of her peril, and they have offered themselves in the hour of gloom. What a gathering it was! "Fast as the fatal symbol flies, In arms the huts and hamlets rise; From wiadlnR glen, from upland brown, They poured each hardy tenant down. Ts'or slacked the messenger his pace, He showed the sisrn, he named the place; And pressing forward like the wind, Left clamor and surprise behind. The fisherman forsook the strand, The swarthy smith took dirk and brand, With chained cheer, the mower blithe Left In the half-cut swathe his scythe; The herds without a keeper strayed, The plongh was In mid-furrow stayed, The falconer tossed his hawk awav, The hunter left the stair at bay ; Prompt at the signal of alarms, Each son of Alpine rushed to arms; 80 swept the tumult and affray Along the margin of Achray." Such was the rising of this people all over the land. The roll of the dead then opened Its mges, and with terrible swiftness the victims of bur long years of bloody strife filled the volumi nous annals of death. "Dead on the slippery decks ! dead by the camp-fires at night ! dead in the smoke-cloud of battle ! and dead in the murderous prison-pen!" Long rows of graves and deep streams ol blood marked the line of march, and tears watered the hearthstones of numberless homes during the fearful struggle. let onward, steadily onward, tne noble column moved towards the centre of rebellion and the cradle of treason. Undaunted by re verses, they carved a road through defeat to victory, and unchecked by misfortune they swept away every obstacle. Every vacant space caused by the carnage of battle was filled by another brave warrior, who bade defiance to death, until at last the beam of hope shone through the clouds of smoke, and the bright rays of victory cheered the loyal hearts amidst the scenes of agony and horror. At last the bloody drama was ended, and the jubilant shout of a nation, redeemed by the brave, re-ecnoed irom tne starry concave over the land ot the free. At last the Union was saved, and the old ship of state that had entered the rempest In the most perilous moment, and under the discouraging scorn of foreign rivals, who wished to see her go down beneath the breakers.of Rebellion, floats as proudly as ever, and waves her glorious colors to the breeze. Aghast, the disappointed spectators stood like hungry wreckers, in wistful shame, when they saw the final conquest of our gallant, though fratricidal foes. They had hoped the endan gered vessel, tossing between the reefs and shoals, would sink, and they could plunder some of her scattered lragments. ine storm and waves beat high, the captain perished, and many of the undaunted crew fell at their post: yet the noble craft weathered the most frightful blasts, and now rides more proudly than ever on the smiling ocean 01 prosperity. Whenever, amid the fearful surges, the lofty pennon kissed the crest of the waves, stout hearts again bore it alolt. The vortex which we escaped swallowed legions of our best comrades; yet Immortality is their lot; and when the reveille ot resurrection calls them from their resting-places, we hopo, touching their elbows, to pass with them oir last review. He who holds the destinies of nations in Ills hand has permitted us to see the termination of the struggle, lie nas granted us the unspeak able blessing that, after the hours of danger and repeated humiliation, we should enjoy the glory of victory, the triumph of our national honor, and the blissful peace of freemen. The anticipations of the most sanguine friends of our cause have been more thon realized ; the framework of our Government has been re stored in all its firmness and beauty ; the cancer which had crept Into our national health has been eradicated ; the evils of the past have been cured, and ample measures have been taken for our future welfare and permanent safety. Herculean was thd task, bnt the valor of our people was equal to the dignity and magnitude of the crisis. Providence strengthened the band of our martyred President when he penned the proclamation of emancipation, which for ever wiped from our national escutcheon the dark spot of slavery, aad a new impetus was imbued into- tne rrnns ot our wearied troops. almost amounting to inspiration. The song of freedom sounded in clearer notes, and ran along the lines of blue, almost drowning the cannon's thunder and the battle's din, until it ended in the glorious paan of triumph. The soldier's armor was laid aside, and ioy fully we resumed the civic "toga" as soon as peace, sweet peace, once more reigned in our blessed land. A double wreath 01 Honor, a double crown of glory, awaited us who were mercifully spared to return to our homes and families. Thankful prayers rise to the throne of the Almlcbty from every loyal heart when. every year, we gather around the tombs of these noble martyrs to embalm afresh their memory in our souls; bitter tears betray our sorrow that they cannot share with us our joys and blessings, as they have done so faithfully our dangers and trials. Would that we could do more! Bat the wish is vain, for, as the poet sings: "Not there they sleep I not there they rest J Karth here but holds her own ; Their spirits to celestial climes have flown, And have immortal grown In that fair world where death is never known; In that bright world of light, Beyond our mortal sight, Where love brings endless days, with blessings in finite." Let us, therefore, while we offer these obla tions, renew our pledge of fait u to our union: Let us renew our vows for the protection of liberty and equal rights ! Let ns revive our determination to stand oy our country against any and every foe, foreign or domestic, in war or in peace ! The dead who sleep in the bosom of the earth or beneath the ocean waves hear our vows. They have helped us to erect that erlorious superstructure of universal freedom and equal rights upon the foundation of our Republic, and have cemented it with their heart's blood. Let us complote the grand design and make our country truly the world's "Temple of Liberty." Rapidly and bravely the work goes on, and the nations of the earth stand amazed at our progress. They wonder how our people could emertro from the smoke of battle and the clash of arms, like a young giant, with powers unimpaired. The vitality of our nation, her buoyancy and elasticity of life, are beyond their comprehension. With every garland of affectionate remem brance which we place upon a grave.iei us repeat our pledge, that never shall we be untrue to the principles for which they fought, and that we never bhall cease to labor for the noble cause for which they died. And when we have finished strewinir our flowers and chanting our requiems. we will return to our Presides with fresh inspira tion Inhaled from the fragrance of their virtues and deedB, keeping the sacred flame of patriotism bright upon IM altar 01 our American nearis.

FROM THE BORDER. Idle Thrrntu of tht Dlnoritanlxpd Brotherhood t'lrui.Y or i rooim to Keep the fence. Toronto, May 30. Despatches from Buffalo soy there are in that city about 1500 Fenians, who express their determination to make a raid in some locality, but being without organization or anybody capable of leading them, no attack may be feared. This opinion is from a source usually considered good. A despatch from Port Colborno says the people there expect that an attempt will bo made to break the Welland Canal, but as there are plenty of 'troops lnjthe vicinity, there la really not much danger of the success of any such undertaking. Three hundred Red River troops and one company of regulars are under arms here, ready to move to Port Colborno or elsewhere If occasion requires. The Red River troops were to start for Fort William to-morrow, but will now probably be detained as a precaution. The general wish here is that the Fenians will come across and be 60 thoroughly beaten that the "sunburst" would be thoroughly eclipsed, and an end put to the present suspense. A tremendous fire swept over a vast tract of woods near Fort William, at Thunder Bay, May 18. The burned district is on the route of the Red River expedition, and will give some trouble in making a road. FROM NEW EJVOLJVD. Fire In Massachusetts. Boston, May 30.

THE N V.MONEY MARKET ON SATURDAY. From the K. T. Herald. "Tlis imnortant part which ths aoestlnn of onr fnroirn trade wields in the financial .ituation, and which la often t imps lost sight of in the absorption of Wail street with local topics and eToLts, baa been made rather manifest during tbepnstweok in the activity In the foreign ex citant el. w rat ever ine exaet relation oi onr exports te the imports, ihe present season is one in whieh usually mere is irom ine a-ranuai decline oi i ne lormer, a neooa sitr for gold shipments ami a corresponding advance in the foreign exchangee. We have often adverted to the difficulties which surround ths solution of the questinn of the balance of trade. In former reira the statistics of the custom house department ware sufficient to give a very approximate result. Bnt since the commencement of the tkinment of Aui.rioan notional and corporate securities to Knrone. it has been a matter 'of Imnneaibilit to determine the situation, fo.-ithe reason that no publio record is made of t hese shipmente, ana hence an impor tant element of the calculation Is wanting; The ship. nisnU of gold last week were over two millions of dollars the largest of any week during the present year. 1 be ad vance inexebange has not been the result, we think, of an very extensive demand for remittance!. Bnt commercial bills and bond bills nave been of late nnusnally scarce. The decline in gold lasj winter unssttlsd the Importing trade and merchants were very eoBDrvative in in troducing goods. The srfT.noa In exchange ha exhibited dvrnnti Ml 61 k fmABtllativ movement not dis connected with tt Uold lioom It is openly alleged in the street that soma oi iut leauiug backers are concerned in an upward turn to gold, and hence t ne assistance given their plans by the operation of advancing exchange. The market is in such a state, however, that a slight advance in gold lets out renewed shipments of Government securi ties. The continued ease in the money markets of London nd Paris has stimulated our Five-twenties and placed them at quotations which permit shipments from this side, with gold at 115 and exchange at 10H'.. The gold market during the week was nasettled, in sympathy with tne movements ln foreign exchange. Jtariy in the week some of the ontside ODeratora. aad rer- baps a csrtain pioportinn of the 'bears' in stocks, sold the market don to 1I81', from which, with the firm- ncss in exonange, to ere was a rally to lib',. The market towards the close was weak aad seemed to be depressed by speculKtive sales, according to the testimony of the good loaning rate, the operators for a deoline acting ap parently on an intimation of the policy of the Govern ment during the month of June, as well as upon the be lief that with ;a,(H)(,000 of gold interest to come on the market July 1 there cannot be any serious advance in the premium. It is pretty woll understood that the Govern ment having once enhanoed the national credit to the degree represented by sold at present prices Secretary lioutwell Is In accord with General Grant in so shaping the policy of the Treasury that there shall be no disarrangement of values in the fntnre hw any sharp advance in gold. The farmers and mercaants nave necome reconciled to and nave pocketed the losses result II g from the fall in sold from 133 to lia. The h. begun anew on the present platform of prices and do not need an advance in gold. Indeed, the next winter will doubtless witness still lower prices for cold than were made last winter, the country remaining at peace and being undisturbed in Its foreign relations. When the cotton crop now in the ground la marketed, geld is likely to din below 1 111, and those whose business is naterially affected by the gold premium should make tt eir calculations accordingly. "The money market is unusually easv for the season, and at the close of the week lenders had difficulty in employ ing their balances at more than three per oent. The rate on call was three to four per cent., witn some outstanding engagements at five. The market for commercial paper exhibits corresponding ease, aad prime double names were readily saleable at six per cent. Time loans for sixty to ninety daya have been made at five per cent.
