No unusual payments have been made during the month, excepting the dis bursements of the accounts of the army, a considerable portion of which was from the amount reserved in anticipation of tie ap- fropr.ation at the special session of congress, he receipts during the month have been comparatively light, but it is believed that the statement will mako a better exhibit than that of the corresponding month of laet year, when there was a considerable increase of the public debt.

Ho Probability that any Real Reciprocity Treaty will be Accepted by the Mexican Government. Cot respondent of the New York World.) Cm op Mexico, November 30. As the newspapers of this city have bait considera ble to say concerning a contract recently made between the Mexican government and w.j. 1 'aimer, James suluvan a Uo., a ie of the prominent features of the agreement may be interesting. The contract will doubt- 1.-3 be approved by congress. Messrs, Palmer, Sullivan & Co. are authorized to construct a railway and telegraDh hne from the City of Mexico to the Pacific ocean and to the Kio Grande; the respective routes and termini of the two branches to be selected after the surveys have been made. Surveys will be commenced immediately, but, before commencing the work, the plans and profiles must be approved by the department of pub lic works. Within four months from the titnej security is furnished one hundred nnd htty kilometers shall have been surveyed, and the plans presented to the department cf public works, and ail surveys to be completed with in three years. Wwt shall commence as soon as the plans for the first one hundred and fifty kilometers shall have been approved, and the hrst section shall be completed with' in eighteen months from its commencement; after which at least one hundred and twen ty kilometers shall be completed every year. Work shall be commenced on the Pacific coast as soon as that terminus shall be selected. The line to the Rio Grande cannot be commenced until that of the Pacific shall have been concluded. Both lines shall be completed within eight years from the commencement of the work; it they are concluded in seven years the government will i'8V the company a bonus of one hundred thousand dollars; if in six years, two hundred thousand dollars ; if in five years,three hundred thousand dollars for each line; and if both should be completed in four years, the bonds shall be aur hundred thousand doJars for each line. The gauge shall be three feet, the company having the -privilege to lay a doable track should it be considered necessary. The rights and privileges conceded to Wm. J. Palmer. James Sullivan ic Co.. will be ex tended to the company or the companies they may organize, ine union contract CDmpany (which, it appears, is the name of tbe com pany to be organized by Messrs. Pidiner & Sullivan), the companies it may organize, aa well as all persons who may be connected with the road, will be considered as possesmng the Mexican nationality, and having no right to foreign protection. The company will prove within three months from the filing and ac ceptance of the bond that, at least, the sum of four million dollars has been suliscribed and ten per cent, ot the amount paid up. The subscription . books stuni - this city at tue same time they are opened abroad, but no subscriptions thall be received before the amounts referred to above shall have been subscribed and paid up by the charter members, ine statates ot the company or companies organized shall be subject to the approval of the minister of public works, and e.ich company shall have its principal office in this capital. After the conclusion of the Pacific branch the compa nies shall have their board of directors in this city, two-fifths of the members of which shall be appointed by the executive. All Questions between the government and the company will be decided by the federal courti. The capital of the enterprise will be fixed 'after the surveys and estimates shall have been made. In case the company shall forfeit its concessions, it wilt still hold its property and the sections of railway or telegraph that may be constructed, nnd also retain its right to the subvention due for the work completed, The company wid have the right t make connection with or include any other railroad already constructed, or to be constructed, in the republic. Neither the road nor ita bones can ever be hypothecated to a foreign gov ernment. The government will pay the company, out of the general treasury, a subvention of seven thousand dollars for each kilometer approved by the depart ment of public works, but which will not be duplicated incase a double track should be laid. The first payment of this subvention will not be made until the company shall have constructed and commenced to run one hun dred and fifty kilometers of the line, after which the subvention tor each twenty kilo meters will be paid. The property of the company shall be exempt from the payment ot ail duties, taxes or contributions, except the stamp tax. The employes of ttw corn Dan v will be exempt from military uervice. The company will be held responsible for the liabilities of sub-contractors. The first line of steamers connecting with the railroad on the Pacific, as well as vessels bringing ma terial to Vera Cruz for the road, will be ex empt from all port duties. No imposts nor contributions will be levied for the term of five years on passengers or goods passing over tho road through Mexican territory. The company will not be held responsible for non compliance with its obligations when pre vented by fuerza mayor, or "superior force.' The company cannot transport troops of a foreign government without due permission rrom Mexico, nor can it transport munitions belonging to a hotitile power nor contraband of war. Within six months from the pro mulgation oi mis law me com pany will deposit the sum of three hundred thousand dollars in the Monte pio of this city as a guarantee of good f aith, or give as security the names of the proprie tors or merchants residing in this republic for the same amount. The company will always have the right to substitute the dexsit or bond with a mortgage on the constructed road. The following freight and passage rates will be collected: Fuvt-class freight, six cents per kilometer; second-class freight, four cents per kilometer; third-class, two-and-a-half cents; first-class passage, three cents per kilometer; second-class, two cents. The above privilege and concessions will be for feited by the company in case of failure to comply with its obligations, except when pre vented by obstacles absolutely insurmount able. The above are the principal points of a concession which is to-day in the mouths of all Mexico. We in Mexico are naturally in clined to be doubtful as to the ability of grantees in general to comply with taeir ob ligations, having seen many concessions granted, and an equal number of forfeitures. However, we have been informed by the friends of the charter in question that there is no doubt as to the ability of the company represented by Mr. Sullivan to build the road. A gentleman claiming to be interested has informed me that the sum of seventeen million dollars has already been subscribed, four million dollars in the United States and thirteen million dillara to Europe. This may be so, perhaps, and the peroons in terested in the enterprise may be abontantly able to carry it oat, but it is certainly odd that capitalists, either English or American, should be disposed to invest their money in Mexico at present. They certainly cannot be ignorant of what happened to the Central railway company just after the triumph of the revolution; in case they should be, I may state that the company was at work con structing a railway from this city to Lagos when the revolution broke out last February. The works were periodically visited by re cruiting officers, one day in the interest of the government and the next in the interest of tie revolution ; the workmen wero ruth lessly seized and thrust into the ranks, and this was continued .until it was at length found impossible to proceed with the enter prise, and the work was suspended. Soon after General Diaz's enteranoe into tbe city, the estates given as security by the company were seized and the company forced to pay a fine of - twelve thousand dollars for non-compliance with the contract, when in fact the very men who im posed the fine had stopped the work and made compliance with the contract impossi ble. The work done has been destroyed by the rains, and all is now aa if it never had been. But government persecution of railway en terprises ha not ended here. Con gress, under pretense oi the exorbi tance of the freights charged cn the Vera Cruz railway, has deliberately author ized the executive to annul the contract sighed between the government and the company in March. 1873. in accordance with which the company baa constructed a railroad from Vera Crux to Jalapa, built an iron mole lit Vera Cruz, and brought out from England two steam launches. On the other hand, the gov ernment has not only failed to pay the stipu lated subvention, but has actually refused to allow the company to use its own mole and its own launches. As the government owes one million two hundred thousand dollars on account of the subvention, it would appear that the question of the tariff of charges has been dragged into the business for the pur pose of enabling the government to repudiate its honest debts. The fact is, the contract of March. 1873. actually reduced the freights on the road. One of the most noticeable points of this new concession is the stipulation that work cannot be commenosd on the Juo UraiuM branch of the road until that to the Pacific shall be completed. This certainly does not indicate an ardent desire on the part of Alex ico to strengthen and cultivate relations of friendship and commerce with the Un ited States. Aotwiuutanaing that intense love of the American people with which General Diaz professes to be devoured, be prefers mnnins? a railroad to some sickly port on tbe Pacific a inmping-off place, which will not be visited by a foreign vessel once a month to connecting with the railroad system ot ine united btates on the lower Kio OranUe. Mr, Sullivan claims that tbe road can be con structed much easier and much cheaper by commencing on tbe Pacihc side. but. in conversation with your correspondent, frank' Ir confessed that the Bmpany could not re serve the privilege to commence where it mitrht think proper, on account of the unsat isfactory relations existing between the United States and Mexico. From this one would suDDOse that the Mexican government lives in such fear of American invasions that it is even opposed to the Rio Grande being crossed by he iron horse. This conduct merely confirms the statements frequently made in the columns of the World, that the hatred of the "Yankees in this country per vades every clans of society, and is nowhere more apparent than among tho high tunc tionaries of the government. Among the telegrams received here, I notice one to the effect that Mr. W. C. Whitthorne has intro duced a jtfint resolution in the United States house of repreaentatives, authorizing the President to open negotiations with the gov ernment of Mexico for tbe protection of labor and capital taken into Mexico under the rail road grants made to N. S, Reneau, in the name of Reneau & Co. The telegram has been read here by the few Americans who have the honor to know General Reneau (as he called himself here) with great surprise, mingled with not a little amusement. The fact is that General Reneau made his appear ance here last Jane for the purpose of secur ing the renewal of a grant which he claims was made to him by President Juarez, while shut up in Vera Cruz, in 1859. He said his copy of the grant had been lost years ago in the swamps of Arkansas, and as no record can be found of it in the government archives. the officials here listened to his story with a benevolent smile. He had several interviews with Mr. Romero, and one with the president, but. failing to establish his claims, took his departure with a certified copy of a petition that he prtseated to the government in his pocket nothing more. Hence it is untrue that his grant "has been approved by all Mexican government, including the present, since 18-j'J, as is stated by some American papers. The Americans in this city lost faith in Gen eral Reneau the moment he told them confi dentially, as a matter of course that he was on the most intimate terms with Secretary fcivarta, and that he had made arrangements for hypothecating his railway bonds to the government of the United States. This he said in words, but by winks and shrugs he said a great deal more indeed, on these oc casions he would mutter something sounding like absorption, extension ot the boundary, annexation, and the like. Mr. Whitthorne's is labor lost, for General Reneau has no rail' road grants in Mexico. It is indeed gratifying to see that tbe members ot the American congress are turning their attention to the extension of American commerce, but it is somewhat surprising to., see how a""- "" win looK. so much further than is necessary; for example, Mr. Uiddings, ot lexas, 1 see, proposes to subvention a line of steamers to ply between American and Brazilian ports, when such a measure respecting Mexican and American ports would enable American merchants and manufacturers to get posses sion of a vast field thousands of miles nearer home. At present goods are brought from Liverpool. Havre. Hamburg and Santander cheaper than they can be brought from New York, and even under these unfavorable cir cumstances American goods are commencing to hnd a market in this country. It lines ot steamers between New York and New Or leans and Vera Cruz were subven tioned by the United States govern' ment, and forced to charge the eame per mile as is charged by the Kurooean steamers which coma to Vera C.rnr.. an advantage would be tnven our mannfac' turera which nothing on the part of European mercfctJits con id overcome. It Mr. Uiddings had proposed to subvention a line ot steam ers between Galveston and Vera Cruz. Tui' pan and Tamplco (the commercial capital of his own state) would, in case ot the success of his measure, soon control the fruit trade of the southwest, to say nothing of the many other advantages that would be enjoyed by tne island city. - 8XNATOB MAXET'S BESOLTJTIOJf. authorizing the appointment of a commission by the government of the united states to confer with another to be appointed bv Mexi co, with regard to a commercial treaty, if it t j i i . 1 1 i i i i nau ueen camea unuer ine last administra tion in this country, might undoubtedly have been productive of much good: but even if General Diaz's government could be induced to appoint such a commission, no agreement could be reached, because there is an idea prevailing here, which has been encouraged by Europeans, that the United Sta'es govern ment wishes to iorce Mexico to enter into a commercial treaty which would be the ruin of this country, it will be remembered that some time last year the city papers, but im perfectly understanding the nature of the tre.it between the United States and Hawaii, insisted on the Mexican government demanding equal rights with Hawaii, by virtue ot the treaty concluded between the United States and this country on the fifth of April, ltil. The government took the mat ter up, and the employe of the State depart ment to whom it was given for examination reported in favor of Mexico demanding the same reciprocity as exists between the United States and Hawaii. As Mr. Villarta did not like this report, he reterred the audition to a committee ot merchants Mexican and Euro pean, the latter predominating appointed for the purpose by the board of trade. The result accorded with Mr. Vallarta's desires; the Mexican government was recommended to make no such demand, and the unfortu nate employe who had advised the contrary was roundly censured. Mr. Maxev will have to wait for the conclusion of his commercial treaty until men than those now in power come to autnonty in tuis country. SHOCKIKG TRAGEDY.

Colonel William Randolph Berkeley, an eminent lawyer of this nlace. was seated in bis office conversing with Mr. Alfred Moth, cashi.-r of the .ngii.b and American bank, when a knock was heard at the door, and Colonel Berkeley got up t answer it. On opening the door a shot was fired from without, and the colonel tell back with a ball in the tern- Ble. Immediately afterward Captain Wil am H. Kennedy entered the office, and. stepping behind Colonel Berkeley's desk. placed a pistol to his own head and fired. Mr. Moth says all he heard was a remark bv Captain Kennedy as he fired, which inti mated be bad mw inmnna luminal tiA colonel. It is stated that Kennedy made three previous attempts on his own life, and for a long bme has been in a moody and des pondent condition. Colonel Berkeley died instantly. He leaves a large family. He was a meraler of the law firm of Berkeley & Berkeley, ot Richmond. Kennedy still lives, but no nope of recovery. He was formerly fiom Petersburg. Aaatker Saath Aaaerleaa Bevolatloa. New York.

The Panama Star and Herald says that a rebellion has broken out at Panto Arenas, which the gov ernment was at first entirely unable to quell, and was organized solely for the purpose of exterminating Captain Guizalde, chief of the garrison. lhe rebels, alter cruelly assassin ating the captain, set fire to all the buildings, including the hospital, with all the patients in it. The rebels stole seven thousand dol lars from the treasury and robbed all the commercial houses. In their confusion they killed several of their own men. Of the houses composing the colony only about one half remain standing. The total number of killed is forty, with fourteen wounded. A Callece Caaveatlaa. Colchbcs. O.. December 27.

Mr. Phelan claimed that the vote amounted to a passage of his bill on a third reading, which claim was sustained by the speaker. Great excitement prevailed, and amidst loud protests against this ruling, a motion to re consider the vote was made.

Considerable con fusion prevailed, but a motion to suspend the rules was carried and the joint resolution adopted, after which the house adjourned till nine o clock to-morrow morning.

Sud denly all London, who had looked upon the young peer as a man of promise, was amazed to hear that he had left town. taking with him the wite of a friend, also a noble lord with one of the oldest titles in England. Of course, ruin came upon tbe erring pair. The divorce court relieved the noble lord from his eccentric spouse. Mayo went out of his regiment, tried to enter the Austrian service, and by this time would probably have been a pasha under Ghazi Osman Like his old colonel, Valentine Baker. But suddenly comes the news that he is locked up in an in sane asylum. In England the laws governing insane asylums are rigid, but they do not exist in the Island of Jersey, where his lordshig u in duress So ail Pall Mall is asking, "Is Lord Mayo mad?" Pall Mall has its doubts on the sub ject. It is very wrong for an officer of the army to run on with some one else s wife, but Pall Mall remembers that Lord Cardigan did so, and afterward led the light brigade. And as Mayo is a young man. and has high connections, and was in. all probability not ine most to Diame, i an mail copes ne may win a new piace in we army. FOREIGN NEWS.

" Berlin, December 27. probable that Herr von cenningsen and flerr von r erken beck, the respective speakers of the Prussian and German parliaments, and both tmincn members of the moderate liberal party, will become ministers of finance and of the in tenor respectively, lhe ministry ot com' merce will be combined with that of agri culture under Dr. Fnedenthal. Prince Bis marck's motive in establishing closer relations with the moderate liberals seems to be a wish to form a strong majority for the support ot his financial and political projects. It be' ing doubtful whether an increase of direct taxes would be politic, Prince Bismarck. contrary to the recognized programme of the liberals, intends to resort to indirect imposts, especially heavy excise and tobacco dutips. Probably other motives are connected with these cabinet changes, which it would be difficult as yet to fathom. If the emperor approves the new appointments, they are likely to be announced about the end of Janu ary. when Prince Bismarck returns to Berlin The emperor seems to have approved, substance, the propositions submittted by i nnce rJismarck respecting a new comtner cial and financial policy.

In Special to the St. Louis Republican. Cincinnati, December 25. A burgl was ommitted in this city at an early h this morning, which will have an import bearing on the Tytus-Dickey case. Miss Dickey, a young woman of wealth and great beauty, who formerly moved in the first circles of society in Cincin nati and surrounding cities, recently brougt suit airainst John li. lytus, ron ot wealthy paper manufacturer at Middle town for bastardy. Miss Dickey's child was born four years ago, and her disgrace was kept profound secre; until a few weeks since, when the woman who had custody ot the child wrote to Miss Dickey's relatives. Suit was then brought against Tytus for breach of promise, damages being placed at twenty thousand del lars, and also a criminal Euit for bastardy The preliminary examination, held a few days since disclosed the fact that a physician iu this city named Dr. M'Carthy, of No. 100 West aeventh street, attended Miss Dickey at the time her child was born, and had in his possession a series of letters and other documents showing that Tytus paid all bills crowing out of the case, and acknowledged his responsibility in the afl'air. This package of papers was this morning stolen from M'Carthy's house by a burglar, who effected an entrance through a front window. Or, M'Carthy believes the burglar had no other motive in entering the house than to secure these papers, and cites as proof of this that a goia watcn lyini in plain sight was leit un touched. The interest in the scandal has been great from the start, owing to the prominence of the parties involved, but this event has made it intense. Other trentlemen of hierhest social nosition in Cincinnati nre su- cused of improper relations with Miss Dickey years ago, and the destruction ot this evi dence may enable the defense to shift the re sponsibility tor her ruin upon other shoulders, The Northwestern Traveling Asaoei aiion in oeeona Annual CM-sslon.
