Two Distinct Hhockaln New York Clty-Popn-Inr Alarm-i'uplln aud Teachers leaving the Hchooln. The New York Tribune to-day says: The earthquake manifested iteclf m this city about 11-30 A. M., causing the wildest excite ment where the shocks were most severe. The earth vibrated rapidly for about ten seconds, when the undulations ceased for an interval of fifteen seconds, occurring again, and continuing for about the same length of time as before. The effects on those who felt the quiveriug of the earth under their feet were various; causing some to believe that the end of all tniugs earth ly was near at hand. Mothers rushed from the densly-peopled tenements of the Tenth w;ird, bearing their children In their arms, aud hur ried up and down the streets In a wild and be wildered manner. Every article of household furniture was left behind, aud the saving of their lives seemed all that the most fortunate could hope for. The shocks were noticed more distinctly in the Sixth ward, although they were distinctly perceptible in the Tenth, Seventeenth, Seventh, and Fifth. Opinion seems to be greatly divided regarding the rumbling noise in tuc earth under neath, some claiming that the rumbling fol lowed, others that it preceded the uudulatlng motion of the earth, and that it continued for ,i almost a minute, at iutenals of a fev seconds. After passing Park row, the wave-like roll seemed to follow the district situated between Centre street, East Broadway, and Allen street, until, reaching the Seventeenth ward, it turned and crossed to Long Island. Further up town Frank Leslie's publishing house, on Pearl street, w&t affected. The foreman or tne composing room was making up a form at the time, and accused a person standing near of shaking trie imposing stone. The movement of the building being repeated, all on the two upper stones rushed down stairs, leaving hats and coats behlud; some even, In tbe excitement or the moment, carried their sticks full or type to the paveraeuL One is re ported to have carried down an empty brasa galley, and another a malltt. The do -k hanging in the room stopped, the hands pointing to 11-36. The workmen on the fourth tloor t escribe the sensation as disagreeable in the extreme, and many or them were sick lor more than an hour afterward. The acid was in some cases thrown out of the batteries In the copper-p'ating room. Two artists in the front room of the building on tbe same floor were thrown from their seats. The fiist few who rushed down stairs aud out at the front door dislodged a large sign which bung over the door. These behind, seeing this fall, thought it to be the beginning of the general N crash. Tbe shock was not felt in the press room. At the same moment tbe employes in Russell's bookbinderv. situated iust onnnsite on Pt Pearl street, came hurrying out. Some of the men in frank Leslie s building, who were seated ueur wiuuuwo, eimc vuuw iuo guuiriuncr ui iuo New York Lead Company, situated near by, swajed perceptibly, much to their consterna tion. As no shot were casting no one was in tbe tower. k At L.ora x layior s, on urana street, two ( shocks were felt, each of about ten seconds duration. On the fourth floor, in the rear, where the women were at work, considerable 'excitement was occasioned. One woman, in her confusion, ran to a window, and jumped to a distance of about ten feet to the roof of an ndjoiuiLg shed, receiving, however, no serious 'injury. Another woman fainted four times in succession. No shock was felt on the first or "second stories, but on the third men were .unable to write, and some were unable to stand, ne gentleman, who had been making a pur- Jiase, and was waiting for bis change, ran from te third floor to the street, and would not re lter the building. The clock hanging oq the all in the rear building was stopped at exactly 111.12. ... At the public school on fourteenth street, near Second avenue, there were l'OO children. The scenes in the dltlerent school-rooms were pitiful. Children were screaming and rushing to and fro in the wildest manner, but in a very short time the whole number, teachers and pupils, were marched out of the school building into tbe street. Inl Grammar School No. 19. aleo situated on East Fourteenth street, they barely escaped a serious panic. The Principal, Mr. William Smeaton, who was seated at his desk in the boys' department at tbe time, per ceiving that the bouse was shaking, at once ordered tbe boys to leave, which they did with out any ceremony. A messenger was at the reame time sent to tbe girls' department request ing the Principal to dismiss tuo gins at once. ' They went into the street without any idea of the cause or their dismissal, leaving coats and hats behind. The Shock la nantaa-OranUe Balldlaga Cracked. A Boston despatch to the New York Times says: In tbe Court House a steady vibration was perceptible to every person within its walls. The Flynt dressmaking case was in tne progress knrst accubea each other oi loggung tne table. and then resumed their writing. The shaking k i .i i i . a A . . i. i continuing, tuey iuoh.eu at eacu outer a legs under tbe table very suspiciously, and again turned their attention to their pencils. The vibration not ret ceasing, they made ha third investigation, when one remarked, lt is an earthquake. Simultaneously all tne people in court rose to their leet, and some twenty or thirty left the room. People hwent out also irom otner courts in the edluce, Tbe vibration in the Superior Court room is said to have lasted lull sixty seconds, and felt ore cicely as If some one was Bitting against the table and violently shaking their knees. It did not teem to be divided iuto distinct shocks. L&robablv the height and make of the edifice I having the effect of springs. In one of the 'oldest stores on Merchants row, the shakin the granite coping over the street door was cracked in two places, and some pieces fell out of a free-stone block upon tbe sidewalk. The store of Isaac Fenno & Co., on Franklin street, was also alarmingly shaken and a lot of sewing girls rushed into the street, thinking the block was going to fall. The shock was severely felt at tbe Suffolk County Jail, on Charles street, and produced a good deal ot fright among the Inmates. I npleasunt seusa tlons were also strongly experieuced by the in nates of tbe State House, the City Hall build idz. tbe Quineey Market, and the Studio Build I inr on Tremout street, and tbe shipping in the (-or was contideroiy nuectea, causing great u.tLt uluijg Ui ft naive. hoc was quite severely Idt la tha vi cinity of Merchants' row. The store occupied by Messrs. Tierce & Buchanan, in the ror, was considerably shattered, the stone facing, cov ert d by brickwork, over the door, being thrown Fpveral inches forwaid aud out of place. On State strect,nearly outsi ie the posr nlTlce, slates were loosened by tbe shock and fell to the side walk. Three large panes of ghis were cracked by tbe concussion iu the third story of the building No. 112 Warhington street. Seven panes of glass were at. o badly cricked in Young's Hotel. In Broad street a clock stopped at the exact moment of the earthquake. A prominent citizen states that about 7 o'clock this morning, while silting in bis room, be felt an undulating motion, which was so perceptible that he spoke of it to others. STRASHURH. Tnklnir PomhfsnIod Mnrrrnder ot the French TrvviK, The special correspondent of The London Telegraph with the army before Strasburg writes, St-ptt ruber 28: At a o cioi K tbe r rencn guards were relieved by German soldiers, who took possession of the tatts and all other Important posts, and at the troops, about 8000 strong, marched in with colors flying aud bands playing, after taking art in tbe ceremony or surrender by the "rtneh. The German army was paraded on an enormous piece of ground abutting ou the gla cis between the Portes Nationale and De rta- verne. Gen. Werder at its head, surrounded by a brilliant staff In full uniform (jle gala). As he clock struck eleven, Gen. U brich emerged from the former fate, followed by his staff, and advanced toward the German commander, who alighted from his horse, and stepped forward to meet him, holding out bis band. Next ca no Admiral Excelmano, Brigadier-General de Bar ral, nnd the rest of the superior oillccrs; then the regulars, marines, douauiers, and moblotn, with flairs flying and arms shouldered. It Is to be regretted that, with the exception of the marines and douaniers, who made an excellent appearance, the troops behaved disgracefully, and contravened the terms of tbe capituatlon in a manner that but too plainly betrayed the state of utter Insubordination into which they had tallen, and which 1 have the highest authority for assuring you was the main cause of General L hnch s surrender. At least two-thirds of the men were drunk- violently and offensively drunk; hundreds, as they stumbled through the ruined gateway, dashed their rules to pieces ngalnst tbe walls or the pavintr stones, and hurled their sword-bayonets Into the moat; trrni one battalion alone emanated cheers of 'V ive la Repubhque! ' "Vive la Prusse !" aud 'Vive l'Empereur!" The ollicers made no attempt whatever to keep the men in order, or prevent them from destroying the amis wnieu tne signers oi tne capitulation bad engaged themselves to deliver up to the German victors. Many of the men even danced to the music of the Prussian and Baden bands; some rolled about on tbe grass, uttering inarticulate cries; others made ludicrous attempts to em brace tne grave Merman leglouaries, who re pulsed them in utter astonishment at their tin worthy bearing. The whole scene was an ex ceedingly painful, disgusting, and, above all, undignified one, calculated to bring the French nrniy into contempt, and considerably to modify the small remnants of respect for le milUaires Francois that still survived in the breasts of a few ef tbe foreign bystanders the terrible des- illusionevnns of this miserable war. NAPOLEON'S LETTERS. A Prince's Ifebts Maximilian's fowltlon to- .UHrda the .iuieror. The London Daily Teleqranh prints extracts from the Napoleon correspondence. Ooe of the letters seized by the Republican Government relates to the expenditure of some members of the Imperial family. It is from Prince Achille Murat to the Emperors- sire:! hasten to inform your Maiesty of my return to Paris, whither I have been forced to come by the state of my affairs. I will place myself at the disposal of your Majesty, assuring you that I have nothing more at heart than to prove to you my sincere desire to conform to jour wishes. After a stay of eight months in Lancasia, l returned, Hire, lor the purpose of rejoining in Atrica tne new regiment In which, at tbe request of my brother, your Majesty has deigned to place me, persuaded that the ar rangements made during my absence would enable me to resume iny duties there, and to efface, by my conduct, from the mind of your Majesty the memory of my past faults. Un happily. 8ire, there is scarcely any if any change in my sad position. Up to the present the sums spent tor me have scarcely been sulli cient to diminish the debts contracted sur parole those in which the honor of my name Is at stake; bo that an the annoyances, all the expostures with which I was menaced before my departure threaten me still. In Africa, as in raris, my presence win arouse tne iury raciarfie7if I of my creditors. There I will be pursued, trapped, arrested, exposed daily to in cessant menacing demands of which malevo lence will not fail to get bold. Your Majesty is too jutt to wish that under such circumstances I Bbouid go and rejoin my regiment, in which all the discredit with which I would be surrounded would deprive me of tbe esteem of my compa nions, and would render my remaining and doing duty in the midst of them impossible. I dare not entreat your Majesty to be kind enough to give me permission to submit to you iu a few words my real situation and tbe means of re lieving me from my difficulties, for the account that has been given to yon was greatly exagge rated, with what object I know not. But I en treat you to believe and be persuaded that I value in tbe first place your affection, and that to obtain it I am ready to do anything in my power. Your Majesty's very obedient nephew and subject, Achille Mubat. September 30, 18W. In the margin of this note, in Napoleon's handwriting, are the following words in pencil: ''Befuse. The Emperor does not wish to mix himself up with these affairs." This act of Na poleon was not the result of caprice, for he appears to have duly considered the matter be fore deciding. To the letter was affixed a note, giving the total amount of suras given to Prince Achille Murat. From July, 18o4, to November, 1805, the sum reached was 83,207 frances. From other documents, which were bv desire of tha Emperor made out at this time, U would appear that the annual allowance of the members of the Imperial family was 1.810.975 francs. The sums given, from 1802, to Prince I.ucien Murat and ms connections amount to 4,3(1:4,503 francs. NAPOLEON AND MAXIMILIAN. Another letter refers to a very different sub ject, and will at this time possess a melancholy Interest. It is from Maximilian, the unfortu nate Emperor of Mexico. In this letter we have traces of the chief points In the character and position of that ill-fated monarch. Ills warm gratitude to Napoleon and respect for bis wis dom, his earnest hopes for Mexico, his untiring energy in reorganizing tne country, the reiuc tance with which his gentle nature adopts measures of harshness, even against undoubted criminals all these things can be seen in this lnterestiner document. And it has some words which give us a picture, perfectly complete, of one whose fate is still sadder than that or her husband. The Emperor speaks of an iutended vlut which he bad given up; the matters, how ever, which this journey had reference to were of great Importance, and could not be left la the tanas oi an ordinary person, so, the Km peror being unable to go, the Empress under took the responsible duty. A touching story, indeed. Is told in the sentence which announced this fact. And at what a time does this letter appear! Maximilian murdered, his wife a maniac, Napoleon a dethroued prisoner t Could thtre be a more forcible, a more louchlug com mentary on the sad reverses to which human i tr-atijet U subject 't I With deep feelings of gratitude and pleasure I have Just received from M. Langlals your Majesty's kind letter of the 29th August. The advice which, In your sincere friendship toward me, yonr Majesty gives me is, as are always your opinions, of the most perfect clearness, and will be most valuable to me. Tbe greatest monarch of our time is surely the fittest to give counsel on these perplexing questions, which are a cause of anxiety to us in Mexico. M. Langlals, having been able to gnin the confi dence of yonr Majesty, may safely calculate on obtaining mine also. He will be of the greater use, as tbe great obstacle which we encounter here is our inability to get proper material to work with. Iu his posi tion as Director of the Finance, he will be able to keep your Majesty well Informed of the state of affairs here. 'I hey are gloumy, but not des perate. The great drain upon our resources is the army; tbe other departmentsof the adminis tration are less expensive than in any other country. The bulk of our military expenditure Is caused by these unfortunate auxiliaries, of whose value the Marshal is firmly convinced," and I am rather doubtful. We have just, within the last few days, brought to a conclusion our volumes on the organization of the country, political, administrative, and judicial. I shall let your Majesty have a copy. 1 have been obliged to abandon my project of visiting Yuca tan. Tbe Empress will go there alone, and, assisted by M. Langlals, who has by this time gained my confidence, will proceed energeti cally to work. You will receive from the Mar shal a copy of the Draconian law against the guerillas, which I have been obliged to sign. It will bring good results; and, if the troops are active, we shall soon exterminate this pest of Mexico. I beg your Majesty to kindly re member me to the Empress, and to believe me, with feelings of tbe greatest friendship and esteem, jour Majesty's poor brother, Maximilian. SHUT Up'ttf METZ. Life In a Ilelen altered Kortre.s-TIorse Steaka and lioiikej Uver Tor Food. The Manchester Guardian says: We have three or four letters from our cor respondent who is shut up in Metz. We subjoin a transcript of the greater part of one written to a friend In Manchester, and dated September 26: My dear M. This comes, like all other good things, from above, for it is sent by a balloon. As 1 bave been unable to find any other means of communicating I have started a balloon post. Some I know have fallen into the enemy's hands, but I hope they have been kind enough to forward them, though as we have already sent off 80,000 letters it is a task. To get out of this is impossible, to remain wearisome. We bave but rumors only of the outer World, and eat horses. I had a delicate dish of donkey's liver for breakfast. In a brief note of the 27th September, ad drebsed to ourselves, our correspondent says: "I am still here, without immediate knowledge as to when I shall get out of it. My intention is to try again as early as possible." Another letter of the 28th ultimo, written to a Dear rela tive, is as follows: My Dear We are still closely shut up here, without much possibility of being relieved until some peace is made, as Prussia is deter mined to hold this as a material guarantee until her demands are complied with. Thank God, I am quite well, and horseflesh la quite plentiful, and we have good stores of bread. But I can tell you that I shall never again call anything common or unclean in the way of edibles. Beef and mutton have long been unknown; pork is 5s. a pound: t utter passed out of memory; and cheese, sugar, and salt, and a hundred other things usually considered necessaries, are re garded as vanities, of which it is wholly useless to think. But we are contented, and accept our lot with philosophical resignation. We have also received, in an envelope posted at Tours on tbe 2d October, three other letters written to ourselves on a thin paper backed with a fine cloth, and faced with oil, which would appear to have formed part of the fabric of a balloon These communications, which bear earlier dates than those which have been quoted (viz. September 18 and 19),state nothinz of public interest, except that at those dates .Melz was "healthy, strong, and determined." and mat on me loin and lvtn balloons contain ing respectively 8000 and 25,000 letters had been sent up. A ROYAL BABY. Bnptltm of a Diminutive Greek Prince Im Pobidc ceremonies. Athens journals thus describe the imposlnir ceremony at Corfu of the baptism of the new Gieek Princess: At sunrise the runs of the citadel fired a salnte and the garrison band paraded the streets playing the national air of Greece. At 10 o clock the court united at 'Mon Kepos,' the summer ret-idence of King George, and proceeded to the .Metropolitan Uburcn in town, tbe approach to w hich was lined with the soldiers of the gar rison and tbe National Guard. The .interior of tbe edifice was decorated with festoons of flowers suspended around the galleries, and bay leaves strewn over the floors and Jhe altar. The galleries were thronged with ladies In gay dresses, and the body of the church with mili tary and civilians. 4lAt the right of the altar a pavilion of blue and white silk was occupied by tbe nurses and otner ieinaie attendants ot the baby Princess, who, until the time for its immersion, lay asleep in a downy cradle of quilted silk. un a square carpet, a little to the rleht oi tbe front of the altar, was placed the King's chair, who stood in front of It, with the Grand Marshal and. bis aids-de-camp, the Grande Mailresse in a heavy blue and white silk, en train, aud the dames d'honneur in the same colors. "On the left of the altar stood the diplomatic corps, members of the Greek ministry and the commanders oi iorelgn vessels ot war then m port. The King entered at half-past 10 o'clock, accompanied by II. II. Prince Frede rick, ot Holstein-Glucksburcr. brother of the King of Denmark and uncle of King George, of Greece. "The Metropolitan Bishop of Athens and the new Arcnoishop or Corfu, with twelve priests. met the King at the door of tbe church, and, returning to the altar, the ceremony com mencea. "Before the immersion the child was held no naked before the people, and then dipped soltmnly three times iuto the deep massive bap tismal font of silver tbe gift of the Commuuals of Greece which stood in the centre of the rj'atform in front of the hiirh altar. The Grande Maltresse presented tbe child on a cushion of silk, and Prince Frederick received it in a large napkin trom tbe priest after baptism. As the bit-hop dipped the infant and pronounced, the name 'Alexandra,' the fortress fired a salvo of twei ty-one guns, and the bells of the churches were rung simultaneously. At the conclusion of this ceremony the child was carried to the inner altar and received the Holy Communion. The procession then formed as before, and the King and Court, accompanied by the National Guard, returned to the palace. In the evening a banquet of one hundred plates was given by tbe King in the ball-room of the town palace. All tbe notabilities, foreign guests, diplomatic corps, and many ladies were among the guests. The social party broke up at a late hour. "During tbe evening there was a brilliant dis play of fireworks, bands of music played in the public squares, and all the public buildings and Bhips-oi-war were illuminated. "The Princess Alexandra has been named after tbe Grand Duchess Alexandra of Russia The godparents of the child are the Emperor of Buffia, tbe King of Denmark, Prince Frederick of Glucksburg, Grand Duke Michael of Kusaia Grand Ducbef ConstantiDe, the Princess ot Wales, the Princess Tbyraof Denmark, aud thtt Grand uuciitfe era, cuter oi the yaeea.

This incom petent person hesitates, probably preferring a domestic skirmlEh with the Democrats to a war with England." A Bomanlst Protest. The Catholic hierarchy of Great Britain have issued a protest against the action of the Ita lian Government in occupying the Papal terri tory. .

They suld the meeting had atisinibled to teach the (Haas tone Govern ment their duty, and to compel them to do It. Cheers were elven for Lord Hartinurton. who had alone shown himself a man iu the present Government, aud cjlea of "Shame on him" erected the allusion of one speaker to the apathy of John Bright In the presence of the "greatest national crime of the century." one speaker said it was the duty of Europe to compel Prussia to make compensation for the vast devastation she had perpetrated in France.

In the Unitarian Con ference this morning the Rev. Mr. Hep worth offered, and Rev. S. R. Cathorp seconded, the following substitute for the ninth article of the constitution: "Reaffirming our allegiance to the Gospel of Jesus Christ and desiring to secure the largest unity of Spirit and the widest prac tical co-operation, we invite to our fellowship all who wish to be Ills followers." Mr. Hepworth stated that the proposition was not satisfactory to him, and did not represent his position nor that of those associated with bim, but it was the last concession that he would make, and he appealed to the conference to accept this substitute and effect a reconcilia tion between the two wings of the denomina tion. Rev. James Freeman Clarke made a sugges tion, which was accepted by Mr. Hepworth, that the last clause be read. The main question was put at once, and the substitute carried by an overwhelming ma' jority, amid mutual congratulations and em braces of the delegates. The vote was, however, doubted by some of the radical wing, and was repeated with still more decisive result, 266 to 33. The announce' ment was received with three hearty rounds of cheers. The Rev. J. II. Vlckers, of Cincinnati fv treme radical), exclaimed: ' 'Rome has spoken, but this cause is not concluded." The Rev. Frederick Frothingham, of Buffalo, then presented a statement of the Unitarian faith in twelve articles, moving that tha whole matter of the definition of the, Creed be left to a committee of seven, to be appointed by the President, and to report at the next meeting of the conference in 1872.

"There was less activity in commercial c'reiea. owing to te severe storm, which kept dealers from unange. i ne Liverpool advices show Unuer mar kets to-day for cotton and wneat, but exports are still embarTssed by the lack of sufficient freighting facilities. The engagements for wheat arc for a week to come. As a consequence the stock on haud was heavy, and prices yielded about lc. on export able grades, the market closing firm but dull at tha uiciine. "The continued deferment of the order of tha Secretary of the Treasury permitting the prepay ment, without rebate, of the November cola interest on the public debt has tempted th holders of gold to give the loan market another 'squeeze.' it will be remembered that they reslted from their recent efforts in this direction through an intimation that Mr. Houtwell would be Induced to permit this pre payment, while meantime they hail managed to force the shorts to cover their sales, and placed a gr at deal of their gold on the market. It has been usual for the Treasury to pay the November coupons about a week before they become due. "Last year tne prepayment began October 26, so that If Mr. Bout well adheret to this precedent there Terrain only a few days to the time when the 'bull' movement in gold must give up the ghost Some stress was laid upon the fact that one of the leading officials of a Canadian bank was In town to-day, and the 'bulla' used the point dexterously in manldu latlng the loan market. It Is evident, from the very nature oi me speculation oi loreigners in our market, that they wish to see gold decline. Ia other words, they are naturally desirous of getting their gold back for fewer greenbacks than they sold It lor. Every foreigner who brings gold into tha United States and turns It Into greenbacks Is, through self-interest, a 'bear' In the gold market. The real relation the Canndian banks hold to the market is not at all clear. If the truth were known It would be found that they are using part of their gold in the loan market and am speculating for a decline with the rest. The holders of gold, who are doubtless agents speculating for the Canadian banks, effected the 'squeeze' to-day only by with drawing about 11,600,01 0 cash gold, which they locked up without lnterest,whlc they forced considerations ranging from 1-82 to 1-16 and M per cent, for tha balance of their store. It may be a wise onllcy to reduce one's a capital fifty percent, and double tha interest, but there is just as much money In getting the ordinary Interest on the lull capital. The only object of the 'squeeze' Is to enable the 'bulls' to unload. Hence, when by their efforts In tha loan market they had frightened the 'shorts' Into buy ing up to 113 V, they began to sell, and the market declined to and closed weak at 113, the reaction being assisted by cable telegrams more promising, as to the chances of peace In Europe. Again the high rates ror borrowing paralyzed foreign exchange, the leading bankers reducing their rates for prime to los for sixty day bills, and to 109 for sight, at which reduction tha mark et was dull and weak at the close. The lowest rate for borrowing to-day was 1-32, and the highest for the Clearing House itf. For gold ex Clearing House the 'shorts' subsequently paid as high as hi per cent. Even after the business of the day had been settled the uneasy operators for a decline wera determined to guard agalust anv contingency, and this evening paid ( and 3-10 tor the use of gold to morrow.
