The steamship \ .tcra-a, which left Southampton on the 16th insi., arrived nt this port yesterday morning. Her news is one day later than the re port ni the Alalia. By the Anu rica we received our European files complete to the day of her de parture fiom Riigi-iad. with the latest financial and commercial Intelligence from London nnd Liver pool. One of the rel? I roil reins lu<l I on removed from Lnird'B ymd to another anchorage, prepara tory fo making her tiial trip. Mr. Lvir l, Jias aured the Liverpool /V.sf that the firm ha-l not lieen notified of any intention on th* part of the government > .1 in- rams. Karl llusarll liail replied to tl.o memorial of the Union ami Emanv*l,-.<lion Nwlety of Manchester m Hfritnve to the rmna. lie saya tha' the qoceiLu of building and fitting out vennels of war for thu " so-called Confederate Hlntre" ban long occupied the attention of the government, and will continue to receive their anxious consideration. The Ixindnn Herald- organ of the ariatocraU-? argues strongly against the detention ot the rain vessels, but acknowledges that such a step had been decided on. Eighty men belonging to the Florida had ar rived in Engluud. It was said they were to man soine new rebel vessel. Hhould the French writ for money damages be levied on the Florida it was thought that she would be sold. The l'arla Ooh stitiUionnel and other French journals go to con siderable pains to prove that the shelter and re paii ing of the Florida at Brest are in strict accord with the neutrality law of nations and within the spirit of the Kmperor'a neutral proclamation. Mr. Blidell had not gone to Brest, as reported. He is represented as being invalided at Biarrits, where he enjoyed an audience of the Emprena Eugenie. The steamer Star had cleared from the Clyde with the intention of running the blockade. Three steamers, destined for the same service, remained in the river. The Archduke Maximilian awaited the arrival of the Mexican deputation anxiously. Some of tho Paris journals again say that he haa announced his acceptance of the throne to Napoleon. Letters from "spoilsmen" and place hunters from "all parts of the world" reached Vienna daily, the writers being all anxious to aerve the future Em peror of Mexico. M. de Montholon's departure for Mexico, as French Minister, had been postponed. The Russian replies to tho notes of France, Aiis tria and England ou the Polish question indicate that the Cxar haa decided to pursue the hereditary course of Russia towards Poland, the Emperor taking all the responsibility. The 1lOiulou Times says that the appeal of the Poles for foreign aid ipjured their cause and, justifies the course of.Alex ander. The Lo)uk \ Times tells the Canadians?for the third or fourth time?that they must substantially defend themselves if they wish to remain out of the Atnerii an Union. England will help them to a considerable extent; but, if the people wish to cut the connection, they are at liberty to do ao. Messrs. Glass A Elliott were making prepara tions for the laying of an Atlantic telegraph cable next summer, accordiug to contract. Charles Mathews1 appearance on the Paria stage created a decided sensation in France. It is noticed by all the Paris journals?from the Mouitewr downwards?as an event of great inter national importance, tending to "blend the na tions" still more in hurmony. Consols closed in London on the 15th instant at 1Viy% a 92% for delivery, and 92% a 92% for the nth of October. The rebel cotton loan had re covered one per cent; American stocks and secu rities were flat. The Liverpool cotton market was still excited on the 16th instant, ana prioea ad vanced from three-fourths of a penny to one penny. Breadstuff* were dull. The Russian Admiral aud officers were enter tained at dinner last evening at the Metropolitan Hotel by Mr. James B. Eada, a citizen of 8t. Louis. Speeches were made by Admiral Liporaky, Admi ral Farragut, Captain RoutakolT, Collector Barney, General Walbridge, Hoa. W. Wright, of Pennsyl vania, aad other gentlemen. MISCELLANEOUS HEWS. Truaten Polk, who la reported by telegraph as having been captured, was a Senator of the United Styes from the State of Missouri, and was expel led I'rom his aeat on the 10th of January, 1001, for oompiioity with the rebellion. Since that time he haa been a wandering vagabond. The title of " colonel," with which his name la adorned, he picked up previouato the war. The suggestion of the Haaat.w relative to a grand reception to the Russians ia being aoted upon. The Common Cvunoil are to get up a splendid banquet, and the citizens are arranging for a ball at the Academy of Muaic. The Board of Aldermen met yesterday after noon at one o'clock, Alderman Henry in the chair. | Colonel Salm Balm, of the Eighth regiment, sent | in a petition asking for an appropriation of 110,000 i to assist iu placing his regiment in the held. On motion of Alderman Mitchell, the petition was laid on the table. Alderinan Farley offered eompli i meatary resolut one to the officer* of the Russian I fleet uow in our harbor, aud tendering them the , hospitalities of the city, which were adopted. A | communication was received from the Mayor I vetoing the resolution directing the Corporation Counsel to take measures to dissolve the injunction i of the Supreme Court relative to the appropriation for the draft exemption. By the report from the J Comptroller it appears that tho sum of $1,529 4.16 51 was the balur.ee in the rity treasury on the 26th of September. A large amount of routine , business was transacted, and t he Board adjourned . to Thursday next, at one o'clock. I A regular meeting of the Board of Councllmen 1 was held at tour o'clock yesterday. A resolution of concurrence waa adopted tendering the hospi i talitlra of the city to Rear Admiral Lisovaki aud other officer* of tbe Russian navy who recently | arrived at this port, and directing the special com mittee of the Common Council to make suitable arrangements for their reception. A resolution ; was adopted changing the polla of the election district* in the Fifth ward. In ottering the resolu ! tion, Mr. Hayea stated that he did so at tho re quest of Alderman Henry. After transacting a large amount of routine business, the Board ad journed until Thursday evening next, at four o'clock. The contest for the championship of America, between the rival rowers, Hamill and Ward, came off yesterday afternoon, at Potighkcepaie, and resulted in the defeat of the latter. The distance rowed was live miles, which was done in the un precedented time of thirty-seven minutes and fifty-eight seconds. Ward was the favorite in the bettiug at ooe hundred to eighty, previous to the atart, owing to his beating Hamill in their previous contest. II tnr.il may now be acknowledged the champion oarsman of America, thia being Ida third victory over Joshua Ward. In the extradition caae of Miunre, alias Hodg son, Mr. Commissioner Osborne, on applieat on of counsel for the accused, adjourned the further hearing over till thia day at one o'clock. According to the City Inspector's report, there were 447 deaths in the city during the past week -a decrease of 20 as compared with the previous week, a still further decrease of 40 from the mortality ol the w>-ek preceding, and 17 more than occurred during the correspond ing week last year. Tkr recapitulation table gives 6 deaths of alcoholism, 2 of uiseases of the bones, i joints, Ac.; 65 of the brain and nerves, 4 of the generative organs, 11 of the heart and blood ves sels, 129 of the lungs, throat, Ac.: t of old age, 10 of diseases of (be akin and eruptive fevers, 7 premature births, 11'> of disese'-s of stomach, bow els and other digestive organs; 50 of uncertain ?eat and general fevers. 9 of diseases of the urinary org*as, aud li. front violent causes.

It is only the old story of Bull run, the Richmond penin sula, the disastrous retreat of Pope and the heights of Fredericksburg over again. In this case of Rosecrans, however, it ap pears that a special commissioner from the War Office did the business. The reader of his tory will remember that the National Con vention sf the first French republio detailed with each of Its armies a corps of com missioners to watch and dcoide apon the conductor the commanding general; but we are not aware that these commissioners interfered with the direction of the army. The French Convention left the army in every case under the control of Its general, but demanded suc cess in all cases. Our War Office, on the other hand, sends out its oommiusioners with positive instructions to this or that general, and he, if defeated, must bear the responsibility. But is it not very strange that, with all the valuable lessons of experience It has received on both sides, our War Office should still adhere to its arbitrary instructions, against the opinions of our best officers in the field ? General Model hin was given a carte blanche In his Mary land campaign, and the result was the victories of South Mountain and Antietam. So, too, General Meade achieved the victory of Get tysburg, and so General Grant oaptured Vicks burg and drove the remaining fragments of the rebel armies out of Mississippi. We hopo that the Presideut will return to this sound policy of leaving a liberal margin of discretion to the officer at the head of an army as to the time for advancing or falling back, for seeking or declining a pitched battle. Napoloon himself, at Washington, could not safely undertake the command of the Army of the Cumberland; how much less, then, the lawyer at the head of the War Office, who has N'nvsr sot s squad ros to tbs Sold, Nor lbs division of s buttle knows. But still the qnestion recurs, what is now to be done? Rosecrans needs reinforcements. Wo are glad to know tbattb- jr are pushing forward to bim, and that considerable accessions bar e already beea reoeived; that he can hold his present petition ttU ready again to ad vance. ' Bnt at the same time rein forcemeats from all sides hre pressing forward to Bragg; for Jeff Davis has declared that "the Yaukeee shall be expelled from Bast Tennessee if the work requires the combined armies of the South." In addition to reinforce ments, then, to Rosecrans, does not this concen tration of the rebel forces la Georgia call for some active diversion against Mobile from the oonvenient base of New Orleans? There are probably not even five thousand rebel troops now at Mobile. The troops of the New Or leans department, who cannot well be spared for Tenuessee, may be rendered quite as ser viceable to Rosecrans at Mobile as at Chatta nooga, to say nothing of the capture of tha groat seaport of Alabama, its military stores, factories and foundries, i And whst of the Army of tbs Potomac? If the season is too fsr advanced for General Meade to undertake the march to Richmond from the 1 north, is not the peninsula still open? Surely fifty I thousand men, with a fleet of gunboati, may be spared for an expedition up <he James or York rivor, and yet leave uu army sufficient to pro tect tho front and rear ol Washington. Or why not, If nothing batter can i ow be done, send forward a strong column to the south side of Richmond to break up the railway commuuica tions between that city and Bragg's artny. These suggestions, we hope, may result in some corresponding action by the government; but above all things, noxt to the strengthening of the central army of Rosecrans, we regard in importance onr proposition for a levy upon the loyal States, Including also Tennessee, for two or three hundred thousand sir month* volun teers and militia. With the addition of even two hundred thousand of such auxiliaries to the army at large, the war may still be brought to an ond within six mouths; and within a few weeks these auxiliaries may be raised and ?quipped, and made ready for active service in garrisoning the forts, cities, railroads, Ac., in the rear of our sdvsaclng forces Ksst and West. We return to this proposition in the hope of fixing it upon the favorable attention of President Lincoln; for the way to end the j war most speedily is to push forward our rein forcements now, when they can bo most effect ively employed against the limited, half de I strayed but still desperato armies of the re bellion. Nicwsraimn Mbannbsh.?The newspaper organ started by Barlow A Company copied in its yesterday's issue the brilliant account of the battle of Chattanooga written by onr special correspondent, and published in the IIkrai.d of Sunday. The n?wspa|>er organ of Barlow A Company did not give the Urrai.o the usual credit for this letter. Now, Alphabet Barlow, and Hiram Cranston, and John Anderson, and Judge Barnard, and the other proprietors of this paper, may know a great deal about the brokerage business, and the tobacco business, and the hotel business, and the legal business, but it Is evident thst they know nothing about the newspaper business. Let us inform them, then, that the honor and etiquette of journal ism require that when tbry copy an article they shall acknowledge the source from which they have borrowed It. By and by, when they have thoroughly learned this lesson, we tusy perhaps teach these amateur editors how to procure splendid articles of their own.

Diplomatic Murtill* Ab??*'**? ? fleet?I'll ?> firiiatval Joke of '*? C#"" fury. It id always bent to hear both sides *>T a story. When the glnj~iiip -ccouni ol Thurlow Weed's diploin-itio suooeas ut farm wf pub lished ill tlio New York Times, * few weeks ago. we had a strong suspicion that our ancient Warwick bail given rather too rose colored a report of his exploits, and that the truth, and the whole truth, would turn out to be not quite so gorgeous. The spicy letter from our Paris correspondent, which we published on Saturday, conclusively proves that our suspicions were well founded. lie gives the other side of Thurlow Weed's brilliant story, and it is In every sense a reverse side and a very tunny side. In order to properly appreciate this most stupendous diplomatic joke, which is now convulsing both the imperial court at Paris and Uie republican court at Washington with laughter, it will bo necessary to give a brief sketoh of the plot of the affair. Thurlow Weed's semi-official narrative, pub lished in the Timet, says that Minister Dayton and Consul Bigelow somehow or other obtained the information that in the annual message of the Emperor Napoleon to tbo Corps Ltgislalif was a very hostile paragraph in regard to our stone blockade of Charleston harbor. The paragraph referred to this block ade as a "monstrous and barbarous policy, which, from a tnere sentiment of rovenge upon a people struggling for free dom, would forever olose and destroy harbors necessary to the commerce of mankind,' and strongly intimated that tho Emperor would take immediate measures to correct "these irregularities of the United States'" and this "outrage against the rights of nations." Day ton and Bigelow, alarmed at this mouace, and anticipating the speedy recognition of the rebels by France, and perhaps a war between that country and our own, instantly telegraphed to London for Thurlow Weed to come over and help them. Mr. Weed arrived at Paris on Friday. The message was to bo delivered on | Monday. No time was to be lost, therefore, and ( Thurlow Weed at once set his sharp wits to werk. Dayton and Bigelow ransacked the ! consular library for CacU and precedents, j Thurlow Weed, with his finger upon his reflect ive nose, Incubated upon a pile of official docu ments and ancient histories. At last Dayton and Bigelow found an idea in embryo, and the profound Weed hatched it out. It seems that, by the treaty of Utrecht, second paragraph, thirty-second line, France had consented, at the dictation of England and Hol land, to close up the important harbor of Dunkirk, and two years after had sealed up the port with stone barriers. "Hurrah 1" cried Dayton; "the French cannot blame us for doing at Charleston what they ouoe did at Dunkirk. Thurlow Weed, oveijoyed at this discovery, yielded to the elation of the moment, and daaoed a double shuffle with Bigelow, while Dayton whistled the music. Then he celled a cab. Then he drove to the hotel of the Count de Moray. Thoa he equivocated, and diplomat ised, and angled, and inveigled, and hum bugged, and aggravated, and puzzled De Morny for over two hours. Finally be let off his grand secret. De Morny was struck by it, and anxiously inqaired about the health of Thur- j low's daughter, the Mademoiselle Weed. Thur low bowed himself out and ran to see the Prince Napoleon. Plon Ploh rubbed his bands and exclaimed, "You have him!" On Monday the Emperor delivered his annual message. The obnoxious paragraph about tbe ?tone fleet was not in it. Everybody noticed the omission, and Thurlow Weed was a great man. That is the ex-diplomat's side of the story. Now for that of our correspondent. It appears ?Kri tbo Emperor has a retainer named Moc quard, who used to he a play writer and a beau, and whose business now is to assist Na poleon in all his little follies and esospades, and to acoept present from anybody who offers them. Slidell, the rebel agent, aad Eustis, his secretary, hired Mocquard to got the K nperor to abuso the United States in relation to the stone fleet business. Mocquard, whose influoncoa over Napoleon in matters of State may bm represented by zero, took a pinch of snuff, pocketed the ilouc ur and promised everything. In a few days alter Mocquard produced the paragraph which we have quoted above, and confidentially informed the rebel agents tb*t he ?ad copied it from the Emperor'* mes sage. The paragraph was written i& sxcellent French, and a legible hand, and Slidell and Eustis saw no reason to doubt Mocquard's as sertion. Consequently they paid him over again, in rebel bonds, and went off in high glee to tell all the Southerners In Paris. Tbe Southerners, frantic at tholr good fortune, sang " Dixie's Land" and the " Bonnie Blue Flag" night and day. Mr. Dayton hoard tho noise, and, by a judicious expenditure of time and light wine?charged to the secret service fund?he ascertained the cause of the jubilatiou. Then the stout American Minister hunted up Mocquard, and with an outlay of an immense sum?also charged to the secret service fund? for a copy of this wonderful paragraph. With this important documont in his pocket, Mr. Day ton rushed to his office; but, upon putting on his spectacles, he found he could not read it, as it was written in French. Mocquard was again hunted up. and for another large sura?also charged to the secret service fund?translated tbe paragraph into English. Then oomes the tele graphing for Thurlew Weed, and the romance as aforesaid. But tbe cream of tbe whole mat ter is that this stone fleet paragraph which Slidell bribed Mocquard to put Into the Emperor's meneage, and which Thurlow Weed succeeded in striking out, aever was in the message at all. The Emperor had never heard of it De Mor ny knew nothing about it. Mocquard had in vented the entire affuir in order to fleece the Northern and Southern diplomatists. Slidell and Eustis were sold All the oth??r Southern ers In Paris were sold. Dayton and Bigelow were sold. Tburlow Weed was sold. De Morny wss badly sold; for he could not make out what Thurlow was driving at during that long interview about Utrecht and Dunkirk. Tba Prince Napoleon w is sold; for lie declared, "You hare him!" The joke spread like the J influents, and sold President Lincoln and dec- > retary 8eward. who had rained Weed's salary i on tbe strength of his diplomatic success. Tho | only man who was not sold waa that rogue Mocquard, who shrugs his shoulders, pals his j pockets, and chuckles over tbe way hs i .nitwitted the Yankees, whenever be is closeted I with the Emperor, but keeps a very aolcmn j lace befoie the world. No wonder that two ; c?ntii enis are roaring at this immenao joke. It is l e best or the century, and will make Mocquard immortal?it say nothing of our | w#of 'fiend, Thurlow Weed, tbe ox diolomat. ' Tfct Address sf (hi Oor?rssrt ?' Tisbi BlIssUilppI at?MS. We published on Saturday aa address to the people emanating from the rebel Gov ernors of the tour slave States?Texas. Louis.ana, Arkansas and Missouri?which lay west of the Mississippi river. 'Ibe manifesto indicates a desire on the part of those functionaries to establish a separate con federacy, independent both of Jeff. Davis and the Washington government. But this point wo do not propose now to discuss. We only wish to sbow the weakness of the positions that three at least of these pompous officials now occupy, with the prospect of a speedy further curtailment of their power and influence. Texas is the only one of these four States where the power ot the local rebel government Is in any way recognized and enforced; and even there we expect soon to hear of some im portant movements that will force the authori ties to join the itinerancy. Governor lrauk R. Lubbock, one of the s gners to the address, was elected on the seoession ticket in Texas, in 1861, and succeeded Sum Houston. Ho has only three monthB longer to serve, when he will leave the executive chair to make room for Pendleton Murral, who was ohoaen In Au gust. His influence and opinions, therefore, like those of nearly all outgoing functionaries, are not much respected. The heart, the wealth, fbur-flfths of the popu lation and two-thirds of the territory or Loui siana are now under the power of the govern ment of tho Union, leaving little more than the swamps and Band plaius under the control of Governor Moore, another of the signers. Thomas Overton Moore was once a very re spectable citizen of New Orleans, he having sprung from the first and oldest families, and at one time was acknowledged as one of the lead ing men of Louisiana. He was elected to the ! executive chair iu the fall of 1859 on the demo cratic ticket, in opposition to Know Notbingism, a>id in the following January was inaugurated. His term expires with the close of the present year; but. as it will be impossible to hold a rebel election in November in tbat State, we presume he will construe tho constitution into ku acknowledgment of his right to hold over. He became a wanderer on tho tak.ng ol Baton Rouge, the capital, by the Union forces, and has since been dodging around between Ar kansas and Tex is, for the most of tho time located along the banks of the Mississippi river bayous, with boats at hand to transport him self aud suite from one locality to another, as approaching danger might dictate. About one-half of Arkansas, iu wh ch is in eluded the State capital, now acknowledges the authority of the Union, and the other hair will soon admit a gentle subjugation. Mr. Harris Flannagin, tho wandering Governor of the State, we know nothing about, except that he was elected in 1862, and took his seat at the commencement of the present year as the successor of Henry M. Rector. The most ridiculous position Is that assumed by Thomas C. Rejraolds, as rebel "Governor of the State or Missouri," who is represented as the chairman or this shadowy congress of "Governors. Missouri has never shown a dispo sition to throw off her allegiance to the general government, and she is to-day as loyal as New Eagland. Mr. Reynolds was elected Lieutenant Governor on the Douglas ticket with Claiborne Y. Jackson, in I860. He run away with Jack son from Jefferson City, the State capital, in 1861, and both followed for a while the for tunes of General Sterling Price. Governor Jackson subsequently died in a hovel among the hills of Arkansas, and Mr. Reynolds on nounced in a proclamation that be would as sumo the "duties" or the Executive; but we believe he has not placed his foot inside the oonflnes of the State since the burthens of the station fell upon him. He is a personal friend of Quantrell, tho guerilla chief, who beaded the Lawrence inassnore. These are the individuals who talk of a sepa rate Trans Mississippi confederation! /h? Two Sorrheadt ssd she State r Csuvsti. We notice that the Hon. Ben Wood still con tinues to oppose the democratic Stste p!atrorm, while professing to support the democratic State ticket The nou. Horc. Greeley, the sorehead of the other party, will not endorse either the republican platform or the repub lican candidates 5 j,|g f? k very ouriou* and umu.-ling political muddle. We verily beliove that if these two soc^heads and lentherheads were to be removed from the countr j' politics would cease to be funny and become merely sensible and stupid. ? By opposing the democratio platform and supporting the democratic candidates Ben Wood is simply trying to do Jeff. Davis all the j service be oan without harming himself. ' This may be considered a very shrewd dodge in the Daily JfiNt office; but the rest of the world regards it as s very silly subterfuge. The democratic candidates stand upon the democratic platform If elected tbey will be elected not only upon the platform, but be cause of the platform. The platform is com posed of war planks, and the candidates are all in favor of a vigorous prosecution of the war. What will the Hon. Ben Wood say if they all come out and pledge themselves to this principle? We Invite them to do so. Each one of them should at once write a brief letter endorsing the platform upoo which they were nominated, and these letters should be pub lished, in order to satisfy?not the Hon. Ben Wood; for he Is of little account?but the con- j servative people of this State, who will cer- j tainly not elect any man who repudiates the war democracy and yet runs for office upon a democratic war ticket. The Hon. Horc. Greeley is not as open in bis opposition as the Hon. Ben Wood. He creeps and crawls and tries to stab the republloan* In the back. His opposition is disguised by his hypocrisy, and takes the form of indifference. He is not bold enough to defy the party whip; but he cringes and dodges the blows. He dis likes the republican platform because il is not radical enough. He will not heartily work for the republican ticket because Secretary Seward and Tburlow Weed mode It. Chase is hie master now. and be hates Seward with all the venom whleb a discharged servant feels to wards his lormer employer. Ills object is to defeat the republican ticket, and then turn round to Seward and Weed sad say:?"I told you so. We would have succeeded if you bad only allowed ine to ?rite tho platform and select the ticset.'' We have very littte doubt that the Hon. Lore. Greeley'e wishes will be gratified in this instter; but we can assure him that If he bad been permitted to manage the republican party this year t! e opposition ma jorlty would have been at least doubled. The same comforting assurance is due to the Iloa. Ben Wood, who would hare ruined bis part/ it be could hare ruled It for a few months, and who is now trying in rain to ruin it, out ol spite at his ill suocess In the Albany Conven tion. Nine-tenths of the people of this State are decidedly in faror of the war for the Union, and for nothing else. Politicians make all this muddle about peace. If the conservative peo ple of all parties could ouly get together once and have a fair and square vote upon this mat ter we should never be troubled with nigger heads, copperheads or soreheads again. Gbn. Hookku?Wai.i. Dunk.?It Is understood that Gen. Hooker, late comnir.nderof the Array of tho Potomac, has been appointed to the com mand ot that ooluntn of the arm/ in Tennessee lately under Gen. Burnside, and that (Burnside's resignation having been accepted) "Fighting Joe" has accepted the appointment. Well done. The country will recognize the patriotism ol Gen. Hooker in this matter. He does not atand upon questions of rank or dignity, but his readi ness to serve the country rises above all such paltry considerations. We are sure that be will be welcomed by the soldiers of bis new com mand as the man to repeat with them in Ten nessee and Georgia his brave exploits on tbs Richmond peninsula, at Manassas and al Antietam. It a hundred thousand men are be yond bis grasp, he has shown that with twenty or thirty thousand be can do as much as any man in the army. We commend his example to bis brother officers, of high and low degree, and we wish him the fullest success. The Pine Arte. INOIDBNTS OP TUB Vtt?AN " INSTtTI/tlON" OP THH AKMY OP THK I'OTOMAO, KTO.
