THE GOLD PANIC.
The Excitement Is Still Very Great
in Wall Street.
The Bank of New York Undertakes
Friday's Clearances.
The Excitement is Transferred to
the Stock Exchange.
Small Fry Swept Out of Existence
and Large Ones Weakened.
Confusion Worse Confounded-Things
Very Much Mixed.
Nw York, September The excite
ment In Wall street was very great
throughout the day. and t he event scarce
ly less important than for many pan; days
The Committee from the Oold Room,
appointed In the morning, soon reported
that the Bank of New tork would under
take the clearance of last Friday in the
gold mm, subject to the following re
strictions: That every statement must be
correct, and that if there is a gold bal
ance, it must be paid in gold, and if in
currency, that it must be paid In certified
cceoka.
The bank sgreed that all transactions at
the bank should be made on a basis of
$1 SS for gold, snd that all difference
should be settled between the respective
dealsn outside of the bank, and then
voted to remain open only for transac
tions in the gold loan market, and it was
greed that all loans be made to-day
free of Interest.
At S p.m. the committee reported that
the Bank of Sew York found its clerical
force insufficient to clear Friday's con
tracts in the Oold room withont embar
rassing its regular operations. In this
emergency s resolution that a committee
of twenty members be sppointed tore
reive all the clearing honae sheets sad ex
amine them csrefully, without receiving
any money or balance, and finding all
correct, strike s balance sheet of the whole
and present that to the Bank of New York,
wss adopted after a strong dobate. The
committee thus sppointed will, it is stated,
work all night, if necessary, to straighten
out Friday's business, and the an
nouncement that the Bank of New
York was anable to go on with
the clearance, occasioned a general rush
for the Long Room to sell stocks, and an
other storm burst on the Stock Exchsnge,
with decline in prices from 3 to 15 per
cent. The greatest depression wss In
Vanderbilt stocks, and New York Cen
tral sold down to 162. The street was filled
with rumors of failures on the Stock Kx
ehsnge, but none are, as yet, officially an
nounced. Secretsry Bou'.well to-dsy accepted
gS79,000 of the bids for gold, throwing out
ell proposals below ISO. Those accepted
were st 13IX&IS2H.
The sffslrs of the Oold Exchsnge Bank
were before a committee of the Clearing
House to-dsy. The bank stands debtor to
114.200,000, and paid fl.OOO.OW) gold, equal
to $130,OJO,000 of currency, aud $1,000,000
lu ths shspe of loans, whics are Iu the pro-c-ss
of collection.
The creditor banks have been assessed
for their portion of the $1,000,000 In loans
until the same can be collected. This is
the first real explanation the public haa
bsd of the cause of the delay in making
settlements with the bankers. It is re
ported, from this statement, that the cur
rency of the bank hss been loaned to par
ties, and the whole street brought to a
dead lock. This afternoon the Committee
on Suspensions of the Clearing House
regarded the securities handed over
to the Clearing House on account
of the debtor balance of the Oold
Exchange, as adequate to cover the liabil
ities, snd hsve ascertained that to-morrow
the Bank will stand creditor at the clear
ing house. The Stock Exchange present
ed a gloomy aspect towards the close of
the dev. and the pantcy feeling was re
newed. The hsvec made in names to-day has
wiped from existence a large number of
email operators, snd weakened many
larger flrnia. There were many
rumors ef failures to-day, but
none were officially announced. Ths
National Stock Exchange will commence
dealing in gold to-inorrow.
The committee appointed by the Oold
Room to adjust the accounts of Frldsy
lsst hsve been busily engaged all evening
at ths banking bouse of Jay Cook & Co.
The work cannot be completed to-night,
as statements have ss yet been furnished
bvoa'.v sbut 2J) out of the 300 members
of the Exchange. The work of sdjustmeut
to proceeding on s basis of 135 for all eon
tracts mad a on Frldsy, except those of
Belden Co., whose account have been
thrown out, and who are generally spoken
of by brokers ss " gone up."
The Oimmcrciai understands that an ap
plication has been made to Bout well, re
questing that be would make provlaion
for aupplying the market with currency
in ths event of its once more assuming
the aspect of a panic.
Money is very stringent, and loans
were mads at V percent, on Oovernmenta
and gold, snd Hi per oent. on stocks.

CUBA.
maa Prisateer Hornet aboat la search of
Spanish Prey.
New Yok, September . It Is stated
that the Cuban privateer Hornet, which
ailed some time ago from the British
Provinces, where she was detained tor a
time, is on her wsy to Cuba, if she hss not
already arrived there. It is the Intention
( of her commander to keep a shsrp lookout
for Spanish trans port a carrying troops to
the Island, and also for tho regular steam
ers plying between nsvsns and Spain
and earrving the Spanish flag.
s ' The Hornet is s fast sailing vessel and
ean probably get away from a Spanish
inan-of-war if she cannot fight. It ia
thought by the Cubans here that the Hor
net can engage meet of the vessels in the
Spanish service, with two or three excep
tions. She Will tske her prizes into Mex
ican ports, that country having acknowl
edged the belligerent rights of the Cu
bans. Me nor Lemus. the Cuban Minister,
tates that there is not a single sentence
in the Cuban Constitution which contem
platea anything but absolute snd une
quivocal freedom to the slaves of the Island-
The Republican leaders, long be
fore the adoption of the Constitution,
emancipated their slaves, and wherever
the ami v of the Republic marches, free
dom is proclaimed to ail of every aoler.
WASHINGTON.
Paravlaa Affalri-New Minuter for China -Mreiina
of tao Cabinet.
Washijiqtos, September 58. The re
port that Col. Freyere, the Peruvian Min
ister, has had his attention called to the
fact that be is taking loo much interest in
the aft airs of the Cuban insurgents, etc.
is without foundation in truth. The best
understanding exists -tet ween our Gov
ernment and the Peruvian legation. Tbo
course of Minister Freyere in relation to
Cuban affairs is in accordance with the
action of Peru in recognizing the inde
pendence of Cuba, and for such he is of
course responsible only to his Govern
ment, and if Mr. Fish had occasion to ad
dress any body en the subject, It would
have been to the Peruvian Government
itself.
Frederick F. Law, of California,
haa been appointed Minister Plenipoten
tiary and Envoy Extraordinary (to China.
At noon the Cabinet met, but the only
members present were Bout well, Cox and
