He finally escaped and has never since leen seen here. Madrid, March 23. The assembly met yesterday with the understanding that the vote should lie taken on the bill for the abolition of slavery in Porto Rico. A resolution was passed at lhe (eginuingof the sitting that the cham ber would not adjourn until the subject had leen disposed of. Senor Figueras auuouuced that the ministry had deci led to stand or fall with the measure. Contrary to general expectation they re solved not to continue the debate, and, subsequently, by unanimous vote, pass ed the bill lor the immediate eniaucipi ti'iu of slaves on the island of Foito Kico. The announcement of the result was received with cheer. The bill de clares that the republic of Spain will preserve the integrity of the Spanish dominions, aud provides that emanci pated slaves in Porto Rico shall enjoy :!! the political rights accorded to a citl a of Spain.

The following is the protest of a number of the members of the lower bouse of the Tennessee legislature against the tasaage ot tbe act to amend the tippling laws." " Tbe undersigned members of the house of representatives, hereby enter their solemn protest against the passage of senate bill No. 24o, entitled "An act to remedy the evils rettulliug from the sale and use of intoxicating liquors in the State of Tennessee," as a bill in lieu for bouse hill No. Hot, entitled "An act to amend the tippling laws," pronoun cing the same a palpable violation of the organic law of the State, for the follow ing reason: "Section lb of article 11, of the consti tution of Tennessee, provides in unmis takable language, that "every bill shall 1 read once on three different days,aud i- pass. ,1 . a h time in tbe bouse where it originated, liefore transmission to the other.

From a young man named Noyes, now under arrest iu .Lon don, a great deal of information was ob tained, and an a curate description of the parties concerned in the swindle, by whom he was ei.jdoyed as clerk, was furnished to the Loudo:: police. A tel egram was received last week from In spector Bailey, reoueetiug that one George McDonald " who is rejsirt ed to liave Uen coLcerued in the forgeries, an 1 who was known to have taken passage for this port on board the steamer Thuringia, from Havre, should be arrested on his arrival here. Accordingly, on Tuesday last the police boat Seneca started down the bay, for the purpose of intercepting tbe Thuringia, which was daily ex pected. Ou board the Seneca wereCap tain Irving and Detective Farley, .if the central ofiice, and Mr. Judsou Jarvis, order-of-arrest clerk of the sheriff's office. Captain Irving went down to arrest McDonald, and Mr. Jarvis had all the necessary paiers luade out to attach whatever property he might have in his possession on tieiialf of the bank of England, as the proceeds of the torgeries upon that insti tution. Tbe Seneca cruised about the lower bay all Tuesday night and all Wednesday. On Wednesday night the Thuringia was signalled :n the orting, and as soon as she came abreast of quarantine, the Seneca ran alongside ol her. The officers boarded the steamer, and recognized McDonald, who was among the first cabin passengers. Mc Donald t.iok matters very coolly, aud made no objection to the transfer of his person aud bi'.ggage to the Seneca, which then steered away toward the city. Deputies Jarvis and Curry had received by cable a description of the five boxes he had taken with him, but they found only two of the number after careful examination. They secured ten thousaud dollars la gold, a quantity of diamonds valued at te: thousand dollars, and a large supply of watches, jewelry, kid gloves, and fancy articles. The deputes seized all the property in pursuance of the attachment granted by Judge Bra dy, of the supreme court, at the iustauce of the counsel of the bank of England. In the cable dispatches received by lhe deputies a large number of I'nited States bonds were enumerated among the securities iu imasession of McDon ald when he went on board the Thurin gia, but the deputies fa.led to secure them, and it is supposed that the priso ner banded them over to his friends on the vessel. He is also known to have had Prussian, French and Turkish lionds iu bis possession when he left England for this port. The Seneca ar rived at her pier at eight o'clock this morning, and the pri-xuer was at once taken to police head quarters, where he was locked up. lb- is an American, aboUt thirty-two years of age, of very gentlemanly man ners and appearance. He declined to make any statement in respect to bis al leged complicity with the bank of Eng land forgeries, except to deny that he waa at all concerned in tbein. In the complaint made against the prisoner before Judge Brady, and on which the attachment was granted against the money aud securities in his possession, it is alleged that he procured from the bank of England, on the fourth, ninth, thirteenth, twenty-fir-., twenty-third, aud twenty-seveuth of February, 1873, the sum of one huudred and three thou sand pounds sterling equal to four hun dred aud ninety-seven thousand seven hundred and six .y dollars in gold by means of forged bills of exchange, which be presented, it is alleged, at lhe bank. Mr. Natbaaiel Jarvis has been ap rioiuted receiver to L.ke (lossession of the property taken boa) McDonald, until legal proceedings are terminated. The prisoner was this afteruouu brought before United States Commissioner Os borne, and tbe complaint was read to hut.. McDonald asked for an adjourn ment until next Tuesday, which was granted, aud he was committed to the custody of the United States marshal, pending the examination. At one o'clock this afternoon Deputy Sheriff Curry served copies of Judge Brady's attachment on Captain Irving, Detective Farley, and tbe attoan who have McDonald La charge. McDonald will be held to wa.. the arrival of Detective-Sergeant Webb, of the London police, with the papers necessary for his extradition. Sergeant Webb is expect ed by tbe City of l aris. A dispatch from Nashville, yesterday, says that a desperate opposition will be made to the measure to provide for additional revenue; but these who sus tain (lovemor Brown's viev.s are san guine of success. In t.u.v event the re sumption of ti:e payment of the inter est on the lionded debt secems secured. From the NaabvUIe Banner of Saturday. Bishop McTyeire arrived here yester day from New York. He had not been long in the city before this fact became generally noised about, and those who found it an impossibility to restrain their desire to obtain from him confirm ation concerning Vanderbilt's munifi cent gift, waited upon him and heard it from his lips, aud departed perfectly satisfied with their mission. He ven tured out upon the streets, and under went an immense amount of hand shaking, congratulatory of bis having lieen the recipient of the half million of dollars contributed toward the perma nent establishment of the Central Uni versity of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South. The Banner reporter visited the bish op at seven o'clock last evening, to as certain facta for the benefit of the pub lic. The bishop had just finished his evening meal, and enjoyed the balmy influence of the home circle, from which he had been absent, off and on, during the past eight months. He was consequently In a very excellent hu mor. On leaving New York he went to Syracuse, to obtain information rela tive to the architecture of the magnifi cent university just erected at that place, that he might suggest such prac tical points as to the general design of the proposed central university as might lie deemed expedient. That city had appropriated one hundred thousand dol lars toward its erection, and four hun dred thousand more hail been contrib uted toward that end. It was a splen did edifice, "but," said the bishop, with au air of much satisfaction, "we'll beat that." He said that he had been congratula ted by many friends, but congratula tions were due to the munificent donor. One gentleman had remarked to him : "Commodore Vanderbilt has done more toward a reconciliation of the south than the forty-second congress." The amount given by Commodore Vanderbilt was five hundred thousand dollars. There was not a particle of doubt about that being the sum. He had read the article iu the Banner rela tive to the feeling manifested by our citizens on the reception of the news of the donation, and was much pleased with it, and had clipped it out with a view of sending it to the commodore. For the present he would have noth ing to say as to the location of the uni versity. That would be developed in the future. The Iniard of trust would meet next Wednesday to take preliminary action looking to the early establishment of the university. He would at that time make a report to the board relative to what had been accomplished toward its establisment. After a very pleasant conversation in regard to the bishop's travels, the Ban ner reporter took his departure. We understand that au available fund of about two hundred thousand dollars has been secured outside of the contri bution of Commodore Vanderbilt, so that the board of trust have a total of seven hundred thousand dollars at its command. It is currently reported that a rich lady of Memphis had signified her willingness to contribute one hun dred thousaud dollars toward the estab lishment of the university, but we have as yet lieen unable to ascertain any thing dehuite regarding it. It is quite clear that the university is to be erected at an early day. Though it has become generally understood that it will be located at Nashville, we should not be so sure of it that it should become a serious bar to our using every effort to promote that most desirable object. Committees should be appointed at once to obtain sub scriptions for the purchase from fifty to one hundred acres of the most eligible ground, in close proximity to the city, for a site, and tender it to the college of bishops, through the board of trust. There are plenty of eligible sites in the vicinity of Nashville, of which one might be selected. Surely, if a gentle man one thousaud miles from us can a' ford to give five hundred thousand dol lars toward the establishment of tbe university, we can and ought to afford a site for it. Wherever the university may be built, it will of itself be certain to form n nucleus for quite a town of houses around, and will very greatly en hance the value of property. At what ever jioint it should be loca ted, whether beyond the suburbs of north, south and west Nashville and Edgefield, it will exercise a wonder ful influence upon the growth and gen eral prosperity of it, aud generally upon tbe city. When it is contemplated that Ave hundred students are likely to at tend it. some idea may be formed as to tbe truthfulness of this assertion. Some rich gentleman who has plenty of land would do a deed worthy of remembrance were he to donate a sufficient quantity of land to meet all the requirements for so large a university. He could erect no greater or more enduring monument for himself. Let our citizens go to work, meaning business, for the board of tiust means business, aud the college of bishops will mean business. liEORUE FRANCIS TRAIN. PI0 N0N0 ON AMERICA. The Danger of an Extreme Riches. Iofe of AN ABANDONED SMI P. Jadge Italy's Board of Physicians De clare him to be of I n sou ml Mind. From the New York sun, March W.J Monday afternoon, Drs. William Hammond and Thaddeus Cross, tbe board de lunaiico inquirendo appointed by Judge Daly, by request of District Attorney Phelps, to determine the con dition of Mr. George Francis Train, for warded their report to the district-attorney. It was very brief, merely declar ing Mr. Train to be subject to delusions, irritations in his conduct, and of un sound mind. Dr. Hammond subse quently said to a Sun reporter that he did not thiuk Mr. Train a dangerous lu natic, aud has refused to sign an affida vit that he ought not to be at large. He thought Mr. Train a timid man, except in bis language, and was of opiuiou that be ought to be at once released from confinement, as that tended to aggra vate his malady. "Mr. Train," he said, "is a man of great genius and fine education. His chief illusions were that he waa to be liagan dictator; was the only man who could save the country, aud was the leader of the internation als." The reporter afterward visited District Attoruev Phelps, in order to ascertain what action he was going to take on the letsirt of the medical board. Mr. I'belps said that he should lay the report lfore Judge Daly, who, as first judge of the court of common pleas, acted as county judge, and auder the provisions of the statute of i s4i!he has ine power euoer to impannel a jury to decide the ques tion of Mr. Train's sanity, or to send him to the Utica asylum on his own commitment. Mr. Phelps has no doubt that Mr. Train "had a screw loose" somewhere, but be thought him harm less, and not subject to hallucinations fraught with danger to anyone. The medical commission bas made two visits to Mr. Train; the last one on Monday receiving extra official sanction through tbe action of Judge Dowling, who went with the doctors to Mr. Train's cell. Mr. Train says very little about the doctors' decision. He thinks that there is a consniracv to iret him into n nv- lum, and he will quietly submit to the authorities, relying upon his friends to see him vindicated. His friends are aroused, and they will make a light that promises the strongest kiud of a diversion in Mr. Train's favor. From the Catholic Review, Marcli 11th. The affection which the holy father entertains for America is known to the whole world. On every legitimate oc casion he gives expression to it in the most touching manner. We are satis fied that Americans will return this pa ternal love, all tbe more because it urges him to give us wholesome ad vice and counsel against a great danger which threatens us. Recently an American deputation had the privilege of waiting on him in the hall of the Countess Matilda, aud an address hav ing beenpresented to him by Mr. Glover, of New York, he replied as follows : "The beautiful and touching expres sion of devotion and , fidelity which I am often hearing bring to my heart a consolation so much the greater because they express not only the sentiments of those here present but also of all the Catholics of America. In truth, these protestations, so sincere and energetic, render me profoundly obliged to the nation which offers them. "Yes, I feel the obligation of lieing specially mindful of it, and at the same time of praying for a country so particu larly blessed by God blessed as well in the fertility of its soil as iu its industrial prosperity. Be assured that I beg God to increase all these blessings, and to fructify them more and more; but with out omitting, let it be understood, to ad vise everybody that these goods ought not to lie the onlv love of those who pos sess them. North America is incompar ably richer than every oilier country, but its riches ought not to form its only treasure. "In the gospel which I read this morning in the mass, Jesus Christ says: 'Where thy treasure is, there is thy heart also.' Well, America is a nation devoted to a vast commerce and traffic of every description. So far, so good ; for, after all, it behooves all to look to those things which are necessary to sat isfy tbe wants of life; honorable trade in that which Providence has bestowed upon us is allowed to all, and it is right that the fathers of families should be particularly anxious to bring up and maintain their children according to the exigencies of their several stations in life. There is not the least wrong in all that; but it does not behoove us to entertain an excess ive love for riches; it behooves us not to be too much attached to them ; it behooves us not to enchain onr hearts too strongly to the treasures of the world. This fatal worship of pros perity which is purely material, is con demned by Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ had also his little purse; he bad even an administrator, Judas; but you know what was the end of this latter in conse quence of his moderate love of money. For one to possess money, then; for one honestly to seek increasing what he bas for the purpose of being able to better the condition of his family, there is nothing more natural and just, but this is on one condition, namely, not to fix the heart on the goods of this world, and not to make of them a sort of worship. " This is the only reflection which I wished to make before leaving you. For the rest, I beg of you to pray to God. Beseech of him to protect us ever, and to give us strength and cour age in the midst of the tribulations and dangers which are unloosed on every side against the church. Here we are, as it were, over a volcano, and by ex cess of misfortune the government 3eems pleased at opening the crater of the vol cano. But God will save us. "And now I give you my blessing, that tbe lively faith" which animates and brings you here may ever go ou in creasing in your souls for your happi ness, auu may spread more and more throughout America, in order that those who come to Kome from that country may be made better if they are already good; if not (for all are not really good ) that they may return thither with their eyes opened, and converted. Receive, then, the blessing which I give you with all my heart. Receive it for yourselves, for your families, for your works, for all your affairs, and, above all, receive it for the end of your lives, in oriler that you may obtain that which constitutes our true end; that is to say, the posses sion of heaven, in order that it may be granted you to go there and express your love for Jesus Christ, in praising and blessing him for all eternity. Ben edicts, Dei, etc." A Mystery of the Deep Cleared Strange Story. tip A The briar Mary Celeste, abandoned of all her officers and crew, was picked up at sea by a British vessel near tne vv est ern Islands, not very far from the Euro pean coast, and taken into Gibraltar. She was sound throughout as on the day when 9he sailed, hail her canvas set, and only needed a man at the helm to have sailed smoothly into port. Captain Winches, who was sent out to inspect ; , r indition, has reported to us in per Hiu e result of his examination. was nothing in or about the ves se. to furnish a hint of the reason why she was forsaken. The captain, Ben jamin S. Briggs, of Massachusetts, had his wife and child with him, and their wardrolie was left untouched, and her work as she laid it down, perhaps at the moment of leaving, precisely as it would appear in any well regulated home if the mistress had stepped for a moment to the door ami been unexpect edly shut out. A report was circulated that a bloody sword was found, but this our informant examined, and decided that the mark in question, supposed to be biood, was only a spot of ancient rust. The vessel was worth more than her insurance, so that the underwriters here have no suspicion of any foul play or intended wrong. The most reasonable supposition is that she grounded on a shoal, which certainly lay in her intend ed pathway, aud only floated after she had been abandoned by her officers and crew. It is certainly to be hoped that the missing company will come safely to land at last, to unravel the seeming mystery, but the distance ot time which has elapsed leaves but a slender chance of such a recovery. She sailed hence for Genoa, as our records show, on No vember 7th. The last record in her logbook was November 24th, and she was discovered by the brig Dei Gratia I British ) ten days after that is, Decem ber 4th. It is not yet too late to hear that the wanderers were saved, but every day which elapses without tidings from them lessens the chances of their safety. Nothing was missed from the cap tain's stores but a quadrant, his personal effects otherwise remaining intact In the forecastle the order was still more remarkable. The chests of the crew contained abundant provision of clothing-, some of it entirely new, ana none of it disturbed to signalize any preparation for exit. In one chest a good draft on a foreign banker for thirty dollars was carefully placed as when the owner left this port. These appearances forbid all suspicion of mutiny or quarrel among tbe little company who took to the boats and left a sound ship under full sail to its un guided course R. K. K. 1IK.

Asa briel de scription of wnat win oe worn this sea- s o n m a y prove of in terest to the it u 1) I i a. w herewith give a retume of part of an in voice of Im ported Cos tumes, to be displayed by us this week.and which passed the New oik Cus toms Saturday evening last. Be ing all Pattern Suits, the styles may be regarded as de rigveur. Be ginning with one which Is desig nated the Barta ramade of a Nor w e g i a n Orey ("halli, trimmed on the ruflles witli pipings of airaln; its peculiarity con slsted in the ar rangement of the rumeson the skirt in a spiral form, just like the threads of a screw all around. Hang ing over the ends of the spiral ruffles was a sash-like back overskirt.the orapery of which was most most admi rably arranged. The basque was en fichu and postillion crossed in the back, with fan like ends. (Sleeves with mosqoetalre cuff. Another, the Vlvandiere, is of a beautiful tris clair color, with turquoise blue facings and folds. Around the lower skirt are ten three-inch toldsof al ternate ffriM clair and turquoise, with jaunty bows set on in ciustets at intervals aronnd the skirt. The draped a pron is drawn back over the townure and two graduated tabs fas tened to the belt ol the apron, complete tbe back trimming. These are edged with folds, pleating, and have al so the sets of bows. The basque is of the military description, be ing quite ratroufti in front, and has a vest slashed a la rivandiere. Steel buttons on both vest and cuds. A handsome migno nette suit of vigogne serves to illustrate a design which is certain to become very popular. The widths of the skirt are all cut much wider than usual, and then laid in side pleats at Intervals of six inches fastened down to within ten or twe!veinches of the bottom of the skirt. Protruding from under each of these pleat Is a darker shade of goods in son 'tuny, of which also a solid pleated sash Is made, held together with mother of pearl buckle. This drapes the apron around to the back on the right side. The basque is short, pointed, and double breasted iu front.with a long double - pleated postillion, faced with the darker color; bow ou the shoulder, with mother-of-pearl buckle. Wat teuu coat sleeve. The lower part of the skirt in this cos tume being frue from the fast enings of tbe pleats spreads out in fan shape and gives It a most graceful appearance. Another, and the last which we have room to describe this morning, is of a delicate shade ot brown known as Mordore. The trimmings of the dress are of a solid -color, while the ground is In satin stripe. The lower skirt is trimmed with deep flounces, each one being sur mounted by a two-inch bund of the opposite material. Tbe over dress is an English redingole. double-breasted, and with a lap- pel only on one slue or tne col lar, which Is side-pleated to re semble a hood. Inside of this"" hood is a deep Marie Stuart ruche. Beginning at one side of the bottom of tbe redingote In front are two pleata turned up ward, and which traverse tlie side to the waist line when; ibey are held by the belt. These pleats are bunched at in tervals and produce a full effect upon the back of the garment. A fourragere of cords comes from the hood in the back, under the left arm and then fastens to the belt in front, while a sash with ends hangs from each shoulder and crosses on the center of the back. An early examination is invited. 1 Cash Capital.. l,tiu,n() Cash Surplus Assets 1 Jl:r,ljr7 Cash on hand and in Banks J3W.7HH.2H Loans on I'nited states and other stocks and lionds .'market value, I5S.UU2-3U) payable on demand ll,-70.l!ij Loans on Bond and Mortgage (on real estate, worth tl,'M2,7.Ti) 4S2,300.0 United States and other stocks aud bonds owned by lhe Company -ITM.ifi&aii Real estate owned by theCouipany... tstijuiiaiu Premiums due uud unpaid 1I,TSI8W Interest due aud unpaid, due thisday Vilji) Rents due aud accrued . 3,43L3S 2,24.231. 7 Liabilities: Dividends dueSLockholdersand Scrip and Scrip Interest unciainied....$ ,790.ja osses unpaid (this amount inclBdes j:is..'.."i.T . then unpaid of Boston losses, nearly all of which are paid at the time of issuing this state ment.
