fbe rorreapondent of the London Tmrt, writing froui
lloinbay on the lrtth of January, says; ? I have already
alluded to the probability of Persia 'be-omin; the para
mount power in Afghanistan on the death of Dost Ma
homed, and there are two other directions besides Can
.iahar in which she ia r-pidly extending her frontier.
A battle liaa beeu fought at Bunder Abbas between
the Arabs and the PersNna in whish the latter were
successful. A Persian force of 12, (HK) horsemen, with
?ia guns and two mortars, appeared before llunder Ab
liasln the btgiDuiog of Heceiuoer, and shelled the place
for two davs and nights; on the third d?y the garrison,
( onsisting'of 1,700 men, met the Persians at the gate*,
and aa engagement took place, which lasted for several
nours Hie Arab force, overpowered by numbers, took
to their boats and lied to the man-of-war belonging to
tha Imaum of Muscat The Arabs loat in killed and
wounded about 1,400, while the Persians lost about
4,000. The Arabs were commanded by the oldest son
of the Imanm. Ha is determined to hazard another
battle before giving up Hunder Abbas to tba Persians
The Imaum is said to he mustering a large force, which
ha will command in persoa: so that we may shortly ex
pect to hear of another engagement.
TTie ownership of Bunder Abbas cannot at all alloc t
British interests, but with toe probability before us of
tha Shah becoming the paramount power along the
whole extent of our InJus frontier, from Mekran to Pe
diawur, it is unque.-t'onably our policy ti do all in our
[lower to prevent Ru?sisn iutluence from* becoming para
mount in Perria, for if the Kuss.iitis were established in
Turkistan, Persia woulJ be merely a Russian satrapy.

It is not probable that the Sardinian contingent will
embark for the seat o war before the middle, or perhaps
end of next month, but General La Marmora, who is to !
command it, will proceed to Paris and London imme- .
diately after the treaty has beeu ratitled, to take counsnl
with the military authorities there as to the measures
most advisable with regard to its destinatioa, the I
amount of particular arms, aud other minor details.
According to the terms of the convention, it will amount |
to 15,000 men No positive distribution of this force
lias yet been made, nor can it be, until the peculiar cir i
cumi'.ances oi where and witli what troops it is to act
have been definitively arranged; but it may be supposed
there will be 10,000 or 12, W0 infantry, from l,Ot.O to
'J, 000 cavalry, about 000 artillerymen, a company or two |
ol sappers and minners, if required, mid a strong force i
of wagon train and ambulance corps, which they possess I
in a very efficient state.

Count Carour, the Minister of Foreign AlViirs, made a
vary remarkable speech on the Otli of February. He
stated that towards the end of November, instructions
were sent to Mr. Hudson, the English Envoy at Turin, by
the English government, to sound the Sardinian govern
ment as to whether it would adhere to tha treaty of the
loth of April, or plact 'a body of troops at its disposal.
By -ome accident these instructions were delayed on the
toad, having gone fir?t to Marseilles, then to other parts
of Italy, and aid not reach Turin till the 12th of Decem
ber. At the same time official despatches were received
from the governments of Kbgland and Trance, instruct
ing their respective ambassadors formally to invite tbe
King of .Sardinia to ndhere to the treaty. The govern
ment replied that it never would have consented to place
a body of troops at tbe disposal of England, but tbat it
was inclined to treat for adhering to tbe treaty of April.
This led to the military and financial convention actually

Ihe bill in necessary lor tne safety and convenience or a 1
large number of Clttxen* in an important part of the city. J
I The municipal government has requested the Manhattan
(las Light Company to lav down their pipes in the up '
per part of the city, now iu darkness. In order to enable ,
them to do so, it is necessary that this bill should be j
paired. The light is needed ns much by private indivi- |
duuis for tlieir own convenience add comfort, as by the I
city authoritie s for the proper protection of the public, 1
and I or the ellicient carrying out of the muoicipal regu

Mr O'Kkxfb ? Well, Mr. Speaker, I will take my seat,

though tbe honorable gentleman should reply thereto.
I must first, however, move to indefinitely postpone the
The motion to go into Committee of tho Whole was
then earned, and alter the reading of the bill, Mr. linker,
of Montgomery, in the chair,
Mr. MAGtmtE moved to amend by reducing the price to
be charged tor gas to two dollars per thousand cubic foet.
Mr. Hi.at<iim>ki> hojeo the mo;ion would nut prevail.
The gas could not now be furnished at two dollars, and
ibe amendment would virtually kill the bill. It was tbe >
interest of the company to tuinish their gas at as loq^t
price as pirns ib e. They had always evinced a disposition '
to do so. and would not attempt now to keep up the
raws beyoLd a fair and equitable profit.
Mr. * ATI- him ny ? I hope, sir, the amendment will pre
vail. I ask what the Manhattan Gas Company's shares
?re now >e,ling at' It is a huge monopoly, and under
the snug little airaugement now proposed, the company
will realize some $3UU,000. The gas company, it is well
known, subject tbe pen-one who use tlieir gas, to any
rules they choose to lay down, and the public should be
protected against imposition as far as possible. I hope
the motion to reduce the price will prevail.
Mr. Maui ins stated that he had nad a conversation
with the I'recident of the Company, who expressed a |
desire to ImnNh the pa bill witu gas at as cheap a price {
as possible. He (Mr. M ) thought It could be furnished
at $2 per thousand leet. He contended that tbe resi
dents of New York pay one hundred per cent more for
gas lhau they ought tu pay.
Mr. Cocks moved to amend the amendment by adding
fifty cents ? making the price $2 60.
Mr. A. G. Williams. ? I hope the motion will not pre- |
vail. Ihe sole ooject of the bill is to enable the com
psnv to furnish the upper part of the city witti gts. Thf
cnuipauT, of their own free will, have already reduccd
the price from >4 50 to $3. They have never raised tbe
price, although the cost of all articles used in the manu
facture ill gas has greatly increased. l'he company will,
I have full confidence, reduce the price still lower, as
soon us the reduction is practicable The object of tbe
company is to he enabled to extend '.heir pipes through
the upper part of the city, whore ihey are needed for
the comfort of the inhabitants, as well ak for tbs muni
cipsl regulations of tho city, fie hoped neither amend
ment would prevail.
Mr. Watkkbcry said the object was to shut out the
formation of sny other company. This ompany had ill
ways been a huge monopoly, and wished to continue so.
The bill would, he repeated, put $300, (tOO in tbe pockets
of the company.
Mr. Aitkkn said that every person knows gas can be
made for fifty ceDts jier thousand cubic ieet. But it
?lust be of an inferior quality, i.oo.l gas cannot be i
furnished under the price at which it is now supplied by
the company Their charges will always be as low as
possible, for it is to their interest to reduce the cost in
order to extend their business, ami compete with the
other means of lighting houses, now in use.
Mr. Waokr opposed the bill altogether, but if it was to
pars, he should favor the amendment, putting the price 1
of gas at $2.
Mr. Column said that the matter did nut appear to
be correctly understoid. The Manhattan lias l.tgbt Co.
could furnish gas from their bolder at >1 25, and
would be glad to do so. But It must be borae in miud
I that they have lTu miles rf pipe, and the leakage In tha',
distance materially increa'es the cost. They now furnish
the corporation lights at >1 TO.
Mr. Km a mx was opposed to the bill because he consi
dered it a monopoly, and had no faith in the liberality

Mr. Watkhih rt said, the iiuMtion as to whether the
company could allord gas at less than t'i was best uiet
by the fact that the shares of the company were selling
now in Wall strsst, at $130. Pharos did not fetch in
these dayssnch a price, unless the busine** was unusu
' ally profitable. He should like to hear a reply to the
charge that tbe company make out bills for gas thit has
| never been consumed, and then deprive a citizen of lign
tbe moment he okjects to the imposition.
Mr. A. G. Wiujams argued to show that the Gas
Company was no monopoly, and that ft had been of in
finite benefit to tbe public lie ateo showed that the
bill could not create a monopoly now, as it remained
with the Common Council of the city to say whether
I other companies might lay down pipes a ong the same
' streets. It was necessary for the ?aiety of the public of
the upper part of the city that the streets should be
lighted by gas, and only by th* passage of this bill could
that be done.
After further remarks from several member*.
Mr. VAont said, that for the parpose of introducing
resolution catling upon tbe company to furnish, un
- oath, a statement as to tbe capital of the associa
l, the price they charge for gas. their receipts, ex

We dip our pen with sad feelings as it sheds the black
ink. tbe natural symbol of tbe sorrowing heart-throbs
that embarrass the mind, a? we proceed upon our mourn
ful ta?k. lu the death of this unostentatious and pious
woman, a Christian family ami benevolent community
hate mt t with an irreparable loss: a once happy house
hold is left bereft of its most genial companion; its joy
ous ri ?sle is uow by this desolation stilled by the sad
quiet u e ot sorrowing heart thoughts, deeply mourning
the loss of its peail of great price, the combination of
? xc< lu nee that marked ana adorned this Christian lady
through lite, was remarkably sustained by an over faith
ful example of religious character ot peculiar frankness,
beneTOlence, and charity. In all that she did was to be
discerned snch manners of Christian beauty and kindness,
that i. lie seemed rather to be receiving tban conferring
the most generous and benevolent gifts when others
were made the recipients of her kindness ? thus aeeme l
ever living within her mind t lint love which ch*ract, er
i?d her atlection towards her fellow beings, reflecting
such a soul as few present within tbe writer's! limit! of
observation. Her deportment under the increasing cor
tainty of bodily waste ? the decay of death was beaut'ful
Indeed, like the test of her terveut Christian life. Com
mitting herself with a patient fixed purpose, confiding
and stioug in her calm spirit of resignation to tlie care
and goodness of her blessed Maker, a'ter little or no suf
fering during the sa< two ending hours of Itfe she
qnietly'and peacefully passed in the last sleep of earth,
and serenely sunk in death; without cure, witiout fenr,
without the least hesitation, she yielddd to the will of her
God and Saviour. Her funeral was attended bv m?ny
sympathising friends and deeply mourning relatives;
tbey all loved her dearly, and fervently deplored her loss.
The few remaining members of her alllicted family ivere
in the ini< st ol the gathered crowd who sincerely rejoiced
in manifesting tbeir prize of her honored memory and
excellence ot churacter. Well dul her calm, fervent and
perfect laitb sustain this most respectful regard. In
their memory will love to dwell the respect so justly due
that child ol failh who has passed from tbeir Christian
and social circle, having none other sorrow than the sad
irrevocable fact that she is dead. Lastly, in her, the
being who has departed, the writer acknowledges a
blessed aunt ? nay, a second mother, for in our early
years the dear one who gave us birth died and panaed to
immortality. We have said second parent? if tiie incea
sunt cares of dally nursing and nightly trouble attendant
upon childhood1 s early years lie ta*en a* a proof of u
mother's tenderness and" affection, tbenlsurely the dear
loved departed one whs our parent second cause. Sin
cerely do we appreciate and freely, justly record this be
nevolent nnd loving trait of her life's excellent denial,
pelf was never considered nor thought of in th-? mind
and heart of that endeared friend and aunt. In that
being who has passed away and gone, we truly feel and
joytu.ly realize th* liappy fact that shediel in the calm,
steadfast, implicit teliscce of the true teachings of her
Bible aud the perfect infallibility of its faith, and the
joyful hope of a blessed immortality. The latter years
ol ber lile were Bpent, in a measure, in retirement, as her i
general intercouse was con lined to a few special friend*,
who, knowing the peculiarity of her circumsttnces, were j
ever rea< y to alleviate the monotony of lier seclusion ,
from the gaypties of society. Those are best suited to I
appreciate ber worth, mourn her loss, and bear witness I
to the truthfulness of our ooituary and soothe the feel |
logs of lier lone brother and sister. The Lord ha* most j
mercifully sustained her under each and ail of her many
severe tiialaof bereavement and sorrow through life
unto eternity, with the Messed onsolation, through each
tribulation, that the spirits of tbe just are made perfect
in Christ.
