At the time of the birth of Mr. Melville, his father owned a large number of fine hfirs.es, aad as soon as his son's perceptions were sufficiently formed to euable him to distinguish objects, he manifested an inherent love and ad miration for the noblest of animals?the horse As he grew in years this passion increased, and as he bad Maple opportunity to gratify it, he soon be came an expert indriving and rkling horses?those of the mosi unt&meable and wild nature being his favorites. In addition to Mr. Melville's superb horseman ship he stands unrivalled in athletic and gym nastic exercises. Wiih his accomplished sons, who inherit the talent and daring of their father, he gives a beautiful illustration of classic groupings, graceful poses, and splendid tableaux, His success in this as in other brunches of his spe cialty is beyond comparison, and defies rivalry or imitation.

General Young among Them?The Rebel Assault ? a Shelbyville Repulsed?The PlaceSnb seqnently Abandoned?The Enemy now in Possession?Union Forces All Right? Hood's Position Unchanged?Nashville Strong in Defences. Naphvillk, Nov. 30.?A train arrived here lastnightfrom Chattanooga, with a tew wound ed men and several rebel prisoners: among the latter is Brigadier General Young, of Cheat ham's command There are no breaks on the Chattanooga road, though rebel cavalry are prowling near the line. They cressed the track near Lavergne last night, 15 miles south of Nashville. The garrison at Shelbyville was attacked by a body of rebel eavalry'on Monday, but after some severe skirmishing the rebels retired. Skirmishing at the front is of daily occur rence. There is no change in Hood's position. In every skirmish so far the Federals appear to have had the advantage. Our forces have evncnatert Shelbyville, and it Is now in the hands of the rebels. Opinions are rife as to Hood's movements. Ample preparations have been me.de and are making to defend Nashville, should he attempt its capture. TIIE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. The Full Vote of Pennsylvania not yet Ascertained ? Fifteen Counties not Re. ported. Harrishurg, Nov. *29.?By a provision of the law controlling the election of Presidential electors, it is made the duty of the Governor to ascertain the votes for each elector, and then declare the persons thus elected by proclama tion, and cause a notification to be delivered to each person chosen on or before the last Wednesday of November next, after such elec tion. I It now appears that up to noon to-day fifteen l counties have failed to report their vote for electors. This failure is accounted for on the ground of the time having been extended by the law granting the elective franchise to the soldiers. Lacking these fifteen counties, the returr s are of course incomplete, and no notice can issue to-morrow to the electors thus chosen. The contingency growing out of this state of aflairs will require the attention of the Legis lature, and no doubt secure the passage ol a law preventing the recnrrenceof asimilar state I of aflairs. It is evident that the law on the subject is more directory than obligatory, and that any action which the Governor may take in the premises, looking merely to the execu tion of justice, will be indorsed by all right minded men. The Notification Given. Harrisburg, Nov. 30.?The Pennsylvania electors have been notified by the Governor of their election, sufficient returns having been received to indicate the election of the parties notified. The day of meeting is Wednesday, December 7. FROM NORTH CAROLINA. Rebel Forces Sent to Georgia?The Ru mored Attack on Wilmington?Governor Vance an Aspirant for the Rebel Sen ate.

Bragg has been assigned to the Depart ment of North Carolina. The rebel papers of this State report the abandonment of the Wilmington expedition by the Union forces, which appears to give them great relief. Governor Vance is figuring for admission into the rebel Senate, with prospects of suc cees. FROM HAVANA. Reported Capture of St. Domingo City.

Rumor says that 1,000 Dominicans captured St. Domingo city after overpowering the gar rison. This is evidently a canard. Pryor in New York. New York, Nov. 30?Roger A. Pryor ar rived here this morning. He contradicts the report that he had said Macon and Milledgevllle had been captured, and that Augusta had probably fallen. He says Sherman is the ablest officer in our army, and that the South has more to fear from his movements ihnn those in progress elsewheTf ao to the southern refugees in thi3 city, he said they had acted disgracefully.

Boston, Nov. 29.?The article in the Boston Daily Advertiser this morning, in relation to the capture of the Florida, in which very ?trong grounds are taken against the com ments of English press, and in which many English precedents are quoted to show that the ship should not be given up, is understood to be from the pen of Senator Sumner.

Captains J. F. Skelton and G. W. Deal, of the 17th Iowa regiment, who were captured la October last, at TUton, Georgia, by Gen. Stewart's corps, of Hood's army, hare escaped from Georgia prisons, and after a aerie* of almost unparalleled hardships, have made their way out c 1 rebeldom, and are now in thi a city. On being captured, the prisoners were marched nnder guard to Blue Mountain, Ala., thence to Talladega, and there took train lor Selma, Ala. From Selma they were sent down the Alabama river to Cahaba. At this place the men were imprisoned in Castle Morgan, <a place very mnch after the Andersonvllle per suasion,) and the ofllcers were put on parole of honor, with prescribed limits, in the city. After a sojourn of four days in Cahaba, a detach ment of 500 prisoners. Including the officers and men of the 17th Iowa, were put on board, the C. S. transport "Coquette," and started np the river, bound for eastern prisons. This was on the evening of the '29th of October. Thev arrived at Montgomery, Ala., on the 30th, and were bivouacked tor the night tn the eastern suburbs ol the city. On the morning of the ,11st they were pat aboard a train for Columbus. Ga.. which place was reached at 7 p. m. of the same day. Capt. Skelton and Capt. Deal, having some idea of a prison life, resolved to make an effort to escape, l.'pon arriving at Columbus, the prisoners were parked in a common near the Macon Railroad depot. The abovenamed officers proposed to the guard to have a fire kindled, and received permission to step aside a lew paces to pro cure fuel, unaccompanied by a guard. Being outside of the guard line, they took advantage of the opportunity, and, by a circuitous route, (first to the northward, to give the impression that they were going towards Atlanta,) tliey reached the Chattahoocbie river, three miles below Columbus; thence they proceeded down the river, through canebrakes, bars, and many other almost insurmountable obstacles, in search of a skiff, in which they hoped to make their escape down the river to Apalachicola Bay. Having bnt a very limited supply of food, they Immediately put themselves on one-fourth rations. At the end of the thi.d day they pro cured a small battean from a negro, giving him a silver watch a* a remuneration. In this they embarked, but had not proceeded half a mile until they ran into a drift, and Captain Skelton was thrown overboard. With some difficulty he swam ashore, and again en trusted himself to the feeble bark. They had not gone far until the battean sprang a leak, and was well nigh sinking before they could reach the shore. However, they managed to stop the leak, and on they went. They soon found a better batteau than the one they had, and they took occasion to exchange. " They proceeded down the river by night, lying up in the day time, until they passed the mourn ol the Flint river. They then traveled day and night the restof their journey. AtGum Swamp they found the Apalachacola river blockaded for a long distance by drift. With much dif ficulty they worked tneir way around through the swamp to the right, actually cutting apas sage for their batteau through the brush with a butcher knife, the only weapon which they had. At length they succeeded in getting into Chipola cut-off; then into the Chipola river, and from there down into the |ApaIachlcola again. They passed Fort Gadsden by day light, not knowing there was a rebel garrison at that place. At Bleody Bluff, five miles below, they landed and inquired of a woman if there was any rebel soldiers in the viclnty. She informed them that there was a garrison at Fort Gadsden, five miles above. She also In formed them that they were then within twenty five miles of Apalachicola. They floated on down the river until nignt, and stopped for the night at the head of Lake Winspeco. The fol lowing morning, which was Novembers, they proceeded down along the left hand shore, the river at this point brdng very wide. When within six miles of Apalachicola, the sea ran so high that they were driven into a marsh, and could not proceed further without swamping their canoe. Seeing no prospect of the wind abating, they determined to hail a man whom they discovered on the opposite shore. They accordingly raised a white fiag, which was discovered by the man, and he, in company with two other men, got into a small boat and came to their relief. After some interrogatories on the part ef the officers, they ascertained that their rescuers were Union men Here they received their dinner, and when night came tbey were taken into the boat and conveyed to Apalachicola, where they received the kindest treatment by several Union citi zens. At 4 a. m., on the morning of the 9th, they were conveyed in a boat to the steamer Somerset, which vessel was anchored out in the bav, three miles distant. The officers wish to express their gratitude toward Acting Volunreer Lieu enant W. P. Rogers and others, officers of the U. S. steamer Somerset, for many kind favors received at their bands. On the evening of the 9th the fugitives went on board the U. S. steamer Stars and Stripes to West Pass. On this vessel they were kindly treated by Acting Volunteer Lieutenant John Shernil commanding, and other offleersfof his crew. On the morning of the 10th they went on board the U. S. steamer lsonomia, Lieuten ant Commander Simpson commanding, for Key West, The fugitives speak in the highest terms of praise of the courtesy and hospitality shown them by the officers ol the lsonomia. They arrived at Key West on the 14th and left for New York on the steamship Union on the 17th. As a matter of interest jost now in regard to provision supply in going through Georgia, they state that the margin of the Chattahoochee was one vast cornfield on both sides from Co lumbus to tbe mouth of Flint River. From that point to Apalachicola was a dense swamp. Financial.?The N Y. Post says: Wall street to-day, in the absence of more ex citing topics, is discussing the probable plans which the Secretary of the Treasury will recommend for the adoption of Congress. The prevailing opinion seems to be that further is sues of currency ot every kind will be prohibi ted by Congress; and that more stability being thus given to tbe financial machinery of the country, any future loans which may be re. quired can be negotiated without the violent spasms which have been produced by recent loans. Gold opened at 232X, and after selling down to 227#, recovered to '229#. Exchange for the steamer closed at l(9^al0578 for gold, and 510 a5!2# for francs.

The stock market continues to exhibit tbe dullness and incertitude which has prevailed with a few intermissions for some days past Governments are firm without muoti activity. Railroad shares opened weak and closed with an improved feeling. Michigan Central being the strongest on the list. The Commercial Advertiser says: The stock market is generally weak, under a prevailing desire to realize. The brokers de cline to enter under any speculative combina tions from the difficulty realized under late operations ol inducing outsiders to come into the market; nor does the abundance of money appear to check this conservative feeling. There is a halt in the speculative movement on Governments, and under an unloading pro cess on the part of the same operators, prices this morning; are generally lower.

Yester day a torpedo was found in one of the berths of the Sound steamer City of New London. The fuse had been lit, but had become extinguished before the torpedo was ignited, and tbe nellish design of the perpetrators providentially frus trated. It is thought that night before last, just before tbe City of New London started on her regular trip Irom New York, some person en tered the boat, placed the torpedo In the berth, lighted it, and returned on shore.?Botton Trav eler of luetday.
