THURSDAY, JAYT'ATtY A 1833.
Ifi B CITY. IST" A special meeting of the Board of Managers of the Ladies’ City Mission will be held in room No. 17, Methodist Church Block, this (Thursday) afternoon at o o’clock. A Distinction. —The Lawrence McCarty •who was arrested a few days since for passing counterfeit money, should not he confounded with Lawrence McCarty of No. 245 Canal street, who is not in that style of business. Suicide of a Chicago Convict.—lntelli gence has been received in the city that a man named Preston, sent to Joliet for one year from this city some time since, for the larceny of a span of horses and a wagon, and who, It will be recollected, committed an aggravated assault upon a female. witness while sitting near him at the time of his trial, lately ended his miserable existence by hanging himself in his cell in the Penitentiary. The rapidly increasing sale of the cele brated Cococtine Soap strongly attests the high estimation in which it is held hy the commu nity. Tt is prepared from Ingredients of the purest and finest quality, and its excellence has never been attained by any manufacturer in this country nor excelled by the skill and experience of the ancient manufacturers of Europe. Pat up in boxes, containing three cakes, at 35 and 50 cents per bos, by Smith A Dwyer, Druggists and Chemists, opposite the Tremont House. McVickeu’s Theatre.— -Those who visit McVickeris this week will witness acting of a superior order. Mr, Proctor’s Macbeth, on Monday evening, was finished and artistic, void of rant or ■unnecessary melo-dramatic bursts of passion. In which he has often been accused of Indulging. Wc have seldom seen the character as well rendered. He appears this evening as “ Othello.” We trust our cit izens will not neglect the plays of sterling worth, when presented, as they are, with Mr. Proctor as the hero. Cmr Tract and Missionary Society.— An adjourned meeting of the Ladies’ City Tract and Missionary Society will he held in the rooms of theToung Men’s Christian Asso ciation this (Thursday) afternoon at 3 o’clock. The object of Jhe meeting is to complete the election of officers, and to hear the report of a committee appointed to devise moans for circnlating the Monthly Visitor through the entire city; and also four thousand copies per month through the camps. A general attend ance of all—especially ladies—interested in this kind of Christian effort is earnestly re quested. A Generous Donation.— The Shields Mis sion and the North Star Mission Sabbath Schools have each been presented a copy of Middleton’s portrait of Washington in oil colors, from “Stewart’s great original,” by one of the proprietors, W. S. Barlow, Esq., of Cincinnati. Wc are glad the boys of our city can have such a portrait before them; and if bis virtues shall be copied by them, the pro prietors©! this best likeness of the “Father of Ids Country” will have rendered an essen tial service, at the same time they contribute go beautiful an ornament to our parlors. Wc mentioned tbia picture before, but every one should call on Mr. Barlow at No. 221 Madison street, where he is stopping for a short time, or by addressing him a note through the Post Office, have him call on them, and examine for themselves. A New Mission School Building.—A fine edifice has just been constructed for the North Star Mission School, on Division street, under the auspices of the First Baptist Church, at a cost of $2,500, and is pronounced by compe tent judges to be one of the most commodious and most admirably adapted in the city if not in the entire country. It is capable of seating 800 children and was erected through the lib erality of the teachers and friends of the insti tution. The school will be dedicated for chapel purposes on Sunday nest with appropriate re ligious exercises. Chicago now stands con fessedly ahead of any city in the country in the number, capacity and character of Mission School buildings, and is famishing a model in this respect which is everywhere challenging admiration. Bhtan Hall—Helleb, the Magician.— The entertainments presented by the re nowned “ Frestidigitateur” at the above Hall, are in many respects the most extraordinary ever witnessed in this city. He excels as a magician, but the “second sight” exhibition, while unconnected with anything in the shape of a slight of hand performance, and entirely independent of mere jugglery, isamysteiy beyond the capability of any one of the audience to fathom. Mesmerism, ventrilo quism, and divers other “Isms” are suggested, but he denies such agency, and we arc fain to believe with him, that independent of all else, it is essentially a “HeUerism.” Altogether the exhibition is one of a most enjoyable char acter, and is spiced throughout with lively sal lies and original hits by this master of the ambidextrous art: Tbi Death ok Well 3. Street. —The Ger man named Singer, who was reported in these columns on Tuesday, as having died suddenly in the Armory, and who, it will be recollect ed, was picked up In an almost helpless con dition on Monday night in front of Ho. ISS Wells street, left a property valued at about $2,000, to be divided between two children, a boy and a girl, aged respectively five and eight years. It would appear that Singer had lately sold a farm he owned at Calumet, for SI,BOO, which amount he had deposited in the hank of A. C. Ocrtel, on Dearborn street. He then returned to the vicinity of the Calumet for some stock which he proposed bringing here for sale. The weather prevented him from perfecting this business, and he stopped at Bridgeport. Leaving his children with a friend named Scher, in Bridgeport, on Sunday, Sing er was not seen again by his relatives alive. It was not until yesterday that they heard of bis decease. His property has gone into the It amis of the Public Administrator, and will « fall to his children, the deceased having no other heirs. An Elopement from Elgin. A man by the name of Parsons, a cooper by trade, residing in Elgin, Kane County, was in the city yesterday, hunting up estrays, in the bhape of his wife, two children, and a small amount of money, which personal property deliberately decamped from Elgin on Tuesday in possession of a gentleman who registered his name as Smith. Detective Christopher Strcbelwas soon placed upon track of the missing baggage, and finally found the hack that had drawn them from the Galena railroad station to the City Hotel Mr. Smith and his lady—on the hotel records as Mr. Smith and Miss Isabella —did not long remain in the city. It was found that they bad purchased tickets over the Michigan Central railroad for the East, and were destined for some ob scure village in the interior of the State of Hew York, where they supposed Mr. Parsons could not well pursue. They reckoned without their host, however, as the irate husband left last evening by the same road, bound for the same place, keen upon the scent, and determined never to 'give up the chase until he had the custody of his children, and an opportunity of applying a good, strong dose of cowhide to the back of the deluding and deceiving personage who had deprived him of bis wife. This gay deceiver is repre sented as a man well advanced in years, and having heretofore borne an excellent reputa tion in Hie community in which he lived. 1 B«gbae&t tnihoitt a Sutler. The Thirty-seventh Illinois Regiment, bet ter known as the Element Rifle Regiment, on their last pay day sent home $25,000 to their families, and on their next, which occurs during the latter part of this month, wpl send homc/l/fy thousand dollars. The secret of this commendable action and thoughtful consider ation of the wants of those they have left be hind is, that the regiment is without a sutler. Several persons have been about the camp desiring to obtain the situation, but have universally been refused. To one of the more importunate of this class, Col. White replied, that when the whole regiment petitioned for a sutler he would either appoint one or resign. The . action of this regiment we especially commend to other Hlnols regiments in the Held. In place of the sutler’s receiving every cent due the soldiers, pay day would find the regiment with money enough to supply their most .pressing wonts and a surplus to forward to families, thus relieving the communi ty in u large Treasure from their rapport, and securing for-toe sick and wounded a more carefol And thorough attention. It sbonld be * cardinal point In every sol dlcris polky.to provide., for his family first of sB, mid cot leave them a burden upon the community for the sake of lining the pockets of % speculating sutler. Once more wc com mend the “Thirty-seventh" to our regiments, ynft aid thypn go and do likewise. FE ’SS UL RAILROAD ACCIDENT. ! f«i!i*i«n N»ar Hyde Pai l;.! TERRIBLE DEATH OF JUDGE BARROIV. liS2 OF THE JA'JURE The Coroner’s Inquest—Testimony of Witnesses, etc., etc. The city was filled yesterday morning with the most painful rumors of a terrible railroad accident near Hyde Park resulting in the de struction of two trains and In severe loss'of life. Later rumors, however, estab. Ushcd the fact that the loss of life was not so huge as at first represen ted, only one person having been killed and seven or eight badly injured. It was one of those sudden visitations of Providence which burst upon the community with startling force, in this case heightened by the fact that the victim was a citizen of prominence, and was enjoying the highest esteem and confi dence of tie entire public. As near as can be ascertained, judgingffom conversations and from the evidence, as far as taken before the coroner’s jury, the colli sion occurred near Kenwood Station, a short distance from Hyde Bark, at tea minutes be fore eight; others, however, fix the time at 7:43 The Cincinnati Express train, under charge of conductor J. H. Cook, and consist ing of four passenger coaches and a baggage car, came around the curve at this point at the rate of twenty males an hour, and ran into the rear of the Hyde Part train. The Cincinnati Express, accord ing to the best testimony we can arrive at, was some twenty minutes behind time, and the Hyde Park train some tea minutes. Upon the point of time there is of course a dispute. The matter, however, willbe definitely settled before the inquest is The engi neer of the express train, after rounding the curve, suddenly espied the Hyde Park train ahead of him. He whistled down brakes and reversed the engine, but it was too late. The locomotive crashed into the rear car of the forward train, thus crowd ing together the rear car and the baggageccatr t closing them together like the slide of a tele scope, with a fearful smash. The alarm was sounded but there was little time for escape. Several jumped from the train and were unin jured. Among others in the car was Judge Barron, who was sitting near the front end with another gentleman. His companion leaped to the front and escaped unhurt; This was of course done in a second’s space, almost, and the gentleman says, as he landed upon the earth, he became suddenly conscious that his companion had met a violent death. The Judge’s head was hurled through the air and fell, still quivering in some of its lineaments, at his very feet. It seems that Judge Barron was attempting to follow his companion, who had escaped the horrible catastrophe, and aimed at an opening in the car, just in time to be caught between the sides of the cars. His head was cut ofi as ef fectually as though by the guillotine. After the excitcmcnt'aud confusion conse quent upon such a catastrophe had partially subsided, some friends of the deceased set to work to extricate the remains. They, to their horror, found that both hands had been taken ofi, and one arm broken above the wilst. In fact, they had to exert con siderable force to pick out one hand,still warm from the hearts’ blood of the victim, from por tions of the wreck of the carriage. They found also that, In addition to these terrible dismembciments, one leg had been broken, and one arm tom from the shoulder. The suddenness of the shock, as well as the force exerted, may be approximated at from the above, and that the Judge’s overcoat, which he wore upon taking his seat, could no where be found. His other clothing was tom into shreds. Of course death was instantane ous. The following is a list of the injured by the collision: Judge Wm. A. Barron, late County Judge, killed. H. A. Hopkins, injured about the head— and left leg badly bruised—-flesh cuts. James Root, attorney at law, of this city, injured about the breast; not seriously. Chas. Hitchcock, an attorney, of the firm of Gallup & Hitchcock, slightly bruised. Maleom Packard, face bruised and left leg badly smashed; no bones broken. Johnßemmer, Superintendent’s Clerk, of the Illinois Central Railroad, slightly injured. James Brown, engineer of the Cincinnati express train, two ribs broken. S. C. P. Bogne, clerk in the Merchants 1 Dis patch Agency, leg broken and severe flesh bruises. He was the worst injured of the wounded, but will probably recover. The entire community will receive with, grief the tidings of the sudden and fearful death of Judge Barron. He was a native of Vermont, and came to this city in 1852, in the pursuit of his profession. In 1857 he was elected to the oflicc of County Judge, a posi tion which he held with honor to himself and to the entire satisfaction of the legal profession and business community. He continued in this position until the late fall nominations, when Mr. Bradwcll received the .vote of the Convention conferring the 'office upon him. He was an upright, sincere and honest man, and commanded the universal respect of the members of the bar as well as of the public. His age was about thirty-eight years, and we are informed he was unmarried. Upon the reception of the news in this city a special train was at once made up, and the Coroner and others proceeded to the spot. The courts were adjourned in respect to his memory and among those who visited the scene of the disasterwas Judge Brodwell, suc cessor to the deceased. THE INQUEST. The Coroner empanelled a jury upon the spot, who viewed the body of the deceased and then adjourned to the Supervisor’s room at the Court House to meet at hall past two fu the afternoon. At the appointed hour, the Jury met and the following testimony was token. State’s Attorney Haven was present and questioned the witnesses. TESTtatOKT OF JAKES BROWN, ENGINEER OP THE CINCINATTI TRAIN. I am an engineer on the Michigan Central Road, and was in charge of the train coming In this morn ing : when 1 camearonndthe enrre I taw the train ahead; blew for a brake, and then reversed the engine; 1 then blew for brakes again ; 1 should thick it was a quarter of a mile from me when I first saw it; we ran into them st or very near the Kenwood Station: we were running at the rale of twenty miles an hour when I first saw them; at the Michigan Sontbcra crossing we came to a fall stop; this is about three miles south of Ken wood Station; we were not on time: should have passed Kenwood Station at about 7 o’clock; the col lision occured ten minutes before B,as near as I can ascertain, we being nearly three quarters of an hour behind lime: Mr. Cook was conductor of the train; my duty, when in charge of a train, under similar circumstances, would be to stop as Boon as I could; I was not namingto make vralost time; 1 ascertained the time of the naming of the Hyde Park train by my time card; their time to leave Hyde Park was 7:20.1 believe; I took out my card and looked for their time at Michigan Southern crossing; they were due at the Bound House ten minutes before eight; the regzdatione as to fan ning trains around that cure, when behind time, are to run slow; Ido not recollect how slow; we were ranting at the rate of SO miles an hour, I should think; do not think 1 was running according to the rules of the company—unless you call twenty miles an hour slow; had I been run ning correctly I do not think the accident would have occurred; I have been six years as engineer on the road; the train, under the circumstances, was in my control jointlywlth the conductor; the conductor can at any time, if running too fast pull the bell and slow it; I blow the whistle for the hrakemen; there was no such communication to me this morning; I reversed my engine so quick that I could not nave a chance to feel the brakes holding me: reversing would reverse the wheels and cause her to back; at the moment of the collision I should think wc were going at, the rate of about eight miles au hour; it was not my duty, without calling the proximity of the other train into question, to run around that curve at a rate of speed not exceeding five miles an hour; think it was Blower than necessary. [A time-table shown the witness.] I understand the rale as it reads; itdoes not read five miles an hour; the usual rate of speed when on time and a clear read, I* abont 25 miles person*; bythereg- ; elation 1 should run around that curve at about the rate of ten or fifteen miles an hour; had I been running at the rate of ten miles au hour, I might have stopped soon enough to prevent the accident; the track was very slippery, but think 1 could have stopped; them was no particular reason that I should ran fester, but an extra train was afoul of me, and I supposed the roocLclear, as no train was due then at the time; I was standing up at the time of discovering the Hvde Park train; I could not have seen much farther; I had four coaches and a' oagg&cc car; I do not know whether brakomcn wera aboard or not: it was evident to me when 1 reversed the engine that a collision must take place unless the Hyde Park train started up. . To th€ Foreman —Sometimes they have a brake men aboard, and sometimes tbs baggage-man and the conductor do the braking; the conductor said he broke a link in the brake-chain; the regular time for us to leave Calumet is 6:40, and we left about 7:37; at Burnside wc check the train but do not stop; I checked a veir little. To Mr. Honan—There (s a note on time-table. “Look-out for Hyde park train, between Wood lawn and Chicago:” our train, if on time, Would have precedence; being behind time they would have the track. Q. I want to know at whotrate of speed you were Justified in running around' that curve being behind time? A.-About ten miles. The ?_ ut ‘ to . m V 3 ' rati h ‘"'hen on time, is about twenty to twenty-fire mDes on hour. Q. Can you control fmrtralnat that speed on that curve? A. Not .At what rate can you ran and control it? A boutyen miles on boor. Q. Were you ranningai an unusual speed, considering the heft of thetr.in the state of the track, and the feet that yon were behind time? A. I think not. I was running fester than the time card justified—perhaps ten miles an hour fester; I did not juny> from the en gine at the time of the collision; I was injured; the t’r-ctor fsy*« two cf my ribs ore broken: 11170 at y.lclilcan City. TBfTISSONr OF If- COOK, CONDUCTOR OF THE CINCINNATI TRAIN. I rt-tlde Id Chicago,-am a conductor on the Michigan Central Railroad; havefccen Id the bu?l -ueee seven or eight jeers Tor the Central road, in V.1110C& position?, ten years; I was in charge of ihe train that collided with the Hyde Park train till* morning; the firstlkncw or heard was the whistle to brake, from the engineer: I was sitting !u the rear end of the earnest to the hind car of my train; the brake-man was sitting near me; v.eboib jumped up, ran upon the platform, and applied the brakes; I turned up my brake as close as 1 could and reached over to aid the brake-man on his, and heard the second whistle for brakes; the next I heard was the tooting of the wbistlee. as though something was on the track; the next I knew was Hist we had struck, and saw passengers rushing towards the Lake shore; 1 ran forward and discovered that there were some in jured on the Hyde Park train; I next arranged to vo»e up to the city for aid; saw the head of a nn the snow; very little damage was done to my train; the engine was hurt some; the pilot was dumased; the other train was smashed np by the forcing of the baggage car into the passenger coach; we were running at the rate of 80 miles an hour when we first saw them; the curve is Uof a mile from Kenwood Station; my duties, under such circumstances, are to take charge of the -train with the engineer; it is the daty of the engineer to keep a Took out for trains ahead; the point where the accident took place is not on the time card; where there is a point designated, I could state the rules for rmiMnj-' t Tmdfrptaufl that around that curve we are to run with caution; if Mr. Brown had seen their train when passing Woodlawn, he would not have ronasfast as he did; It is miles from Woodlawn to Kenwood; we do not stop unless necessary, after leaving the cross ing. until we reach the Konnd-houee; Five Mile bme Track is between Woodlawn and Kenwood stations, and here we are to use caution-; some years ago there was a track east of our present track, but there is none there now; .the caution alludes to a point south of the curve; the caution extends to the side track, the curve and the sta tion. ft- At what rate of speed are you justified la i aiming around that curve? A. From 20 to 25 miles au hour when there are no trains in the way, the weather not foray. ft. When behind timehow would it he? A.Tthinkwe were running with caution as the Hyde Park train was not iu sight, ft. Did you know, when you passed Woodlawn, at what time the Hyde Park train would start ? A We did. ft. How long had the Hyde Park train been gone when you arrived at Woodlawn ? A. I had thought they were at the Hound House, but did not remark the time. Q. Do you run faster than the regulations specify? A. Sometimes. <2 Is it customary? A. It is. Q. At what .rate of speed could yon run round the curve and command your train ? A. Twenty miles an hour, ft. Was your train, under control? A. I think it was. ft. How, then, do you account for the acci dent? A. We came upon the other train unex pectedly, and I presume they were standing still, ft. Why was not your train stopped? A. First, the engine did not hang to the track, and secondly the track was very slippery. ft. How many brake men do you have on a train of that heft ? A. One; - had we bad more the train could have been stop ped before, ft. Were all the brakes applied ? A. Jso; the two rear coaches Iknowwereattendedto. We could not have done more. 1 thiniq that the conductor on that train, or the station agent, should have come hack with a flag to signal us; I do not think we had time to slacken oar speed more than we did; if lam detained, whether there may be a train following me or not, it is my duty to send back a signal; brakes, to slow a train, should be applied to the rear of a train. ft—What does U mean, on the lime table, where it says “ Look ont for all cars when behind time?" A—lt means to run with caution. The inquest was then adjourned to half pass eight this morning. Fniftral of Judge Barron* The funeral of the widely respected and deeply lamented Judge 'William T. Barron, who was killed at Hyde Park yesterday, will take place Friday afternoon, the 10th Inst., at two o’clock, from Trinity Church. Bishop Whitchouse will officiate upon this solemn occaßion- More about the Fnsileers’ Trouble. A member of the Fusileer regiment asks us to give place to the following note from Hon. S. Colfax. Gen. Lane, we understand, has written a le Iter to the Fusileer regiment, in re gard to pay, stating that the men will get sl3 per month, and 40 cents a day extra when service as mechanics is performed. Washington. Jan. 3d, 1862. Dear Sib I have yourtwo letters. What Gov. Yales or Gov. Morton have done, I do not know, but I have been three times to the War Department, tiring my best in your be half, but in vain. They say there is no regi ment in the service organized on the basis of paying 50 cents per day, and that none such can be authorized—that you have all been de ceived by falsehoods which the army regula tions would have exposed, and that they can not by law grant the relief desired. Adjutant General Thomas told me to-day, he bud de cided to have the whole regiment mustered in as an Infantry regiment, or to muster the whole regiment out. I asked bim ifthclu dianians m It could be transferred to an Indi- ana regiment? He replied no; hut if they were all mustered out, they could then join another regiment. Yours &c., Schuyler Colfax. The above is a copy of all that pertains to the Fusileer Regiment in the letter of Con gressman Colfax. I have been called upon by many in the regiment to have the letter made public. I think it wilhdo no injustice to the author, and will satisfy many minds. Respectfully, D. Bbinkerhoff. Held fob Trial.—The three counterfeit ers, Williams, McCarty and Stone, spoken of a few days since as having fceen arrested for passing spurious * fives * of the State Bank of lowa,- were examined yesterday afternoon ? v fore Justices Akin and MiliLken, at the Re corder’s Court Room, and placed under SI,OOO bonds to appear for trial. Jane O’Hcren, the female pickpocket, lately arrested, charged with robbing different ladies in the lobby of the Post Office, was also brought up, waived an examination, and in default of bail held for final trial before the Recorder's Court. Ma 3. Barker’s Dragoons and the Stub ges RiFLES.—Our correspondent writing from Washington, speaks thus of these crack corps: “ Jnst beyond Meridian Hill arc encamped McClellan’s Body Guard—the Chicago Dra goons— under command of Major Barker, cn. Stoneham, chief of 'cavalry, visited his encampment a few days since in company with Gen. Philip St. G. Cooke, IT. S. A. The two companies were brought out on parade, and it was remarked that Maj. Charles Bar ker’s Chicago Dragoons, were the best-mount ed, best drilled and most perfect disciplined dragoon corps in the army of the Potomac. Major Barker keeps them at work eight hours in the day, working himself as hard as his men. He has the most orderly set of men in the army, and his quarters are kept as neat as a parlor. The dragoons have just gone into winter quarters, having built for themselves hoard tents and stables which are very comfortable.- It is reported in "Washington that Major Barker is to recruit several more picked companies from Illinois, for special service, and that he will soon re ceive a Colonel’s commission. He is very popular with both the commanding General and General Stoneham. It is reported that the Sturges Rifles of Chi cago will be mustered into the 19th (regular) Infantry, and that their officers will receive commissions in the United States army. They are now stationed at the Central Guard House, and besides having charge of the prisoners, act as Provost-Guard for Washington and vi cinity. ’’ Contributions totbe Chicago Sanitary Commission for the Week Eadlna Jan.4,1862.

Wednesday Evening, Jan. 8,1862, The money market to-day has been remarkable only for dullness. If anything," New"York exchange is in rulber better demand, and currency Is slight ly easier. Comparatively In every department, very little is doing. At beet, we are enteringupoa a financial era, of whose practical workings no one amongus has had any experience. Extreme can 9 tion, therefore, is tbe rule, and those who can are strengthening themselves and preparing for the worst, or to turn a profitable penny whenever the opportunity offers. Business men do not like to make paper at such times, and the banks would take it only in limited quantities if thoy did. The Indiana. Branches are drawing in their circulation here, as fast as the people wish to pay Ipcr cent, premium for coin; the Bank of Montreal is promising the same course. The more real strength the banks have, the more certain they wlDbe to adopt this course. The Ohio, Indiana and lowa State Banks are stDl redeeming at their counters in coin, and hence their bills wiD be sure to run home rapidly, and unless some effective means can be adopted, we shaft soon be overrun with Eastern “ wild cat,” and in such an event our people will have more losses to fear than the “stump-tail’’ troubles of last spring inflicted upon them. What is to be done in the premises nobody seems exactly to know. Our dispatch this mors inf stating that a bQI was to be introduced into Congress to make a new issue of Treasury notes, and made them, with those already authorized, a legal tender in the pay ment of aD debts, was received with general satis faction. It is good as far as it goes; but a further law, making ample provision by a direct tax for tbe payment of the interest on the bonds into which they are convertible, is necessary before confidence can be fully restored. If, in addition to tbii, tbe people could see vigorous blows tolling thick and tost upon the traitors, the business of the West would be prosperous, if possible, beyond all former precedents. . Though New York exchange is in rather better demand, or possibly is held firmer by the hanks, owing to a better supply of currency,* the wants of buyers are still below tbe wishes and the ability of bankers. Host, if not all of them, sold freely at # £ cent, premium. Sellers were glad to get par. Gold—Gold is held more firmly,’though compar atively little changes hands. For general currency the brokers charge2#(g£percent., the upper being the more usual figure. Buying price I#@2 per cent premium. Teasers' Bake.-—The quarterly statement of the Traders’ Bank of this city will be found in our advertising columns. It Is a new and well man aged institution, making coUectioas, dealing in coin, exchange, uncurrent money, Ac., &c. A New Phase op Stcjiptail.—lt is evident that stmnptail is of the feline species, as it gives evidence of at least nine lives.’ The Illinois Cen tral Railroad Company, as is well known, pay sev en per cent, to the State on the gross earnings of the Company. Now the question comes np, pNaU the Company pay seven portent, in gold, on the gross earnings, in stnmptaU, worth, say an aver age of seventy-five cents on the dollar, or should they pay in Its gold value. The difference is some $12,000 against the Co., and they decline to pay the percentage unless this allowance is made, as it certainly should be. Tne gold is on deposit in New York ready to be drawn -on 'as soon as this point is settled. "What wfll be the result we have no means of knowing. The Company do not ask an offset of their account with the -State fortrans. portation,ashasbecn stated, but propose to pay the gold at once on the above basis. As that basis under all the circumstances is strictly just, it is to he hoped the matter will at once be adjusted. Louisville.—The Journal of yesterday says: Although some of the hanks of Kentucky have their branches in disloyal districts, the notes of all these branches are received by all the hanks on deposit and in pavment of debts. We also learn that the bank officers of this city, after foil consultation, have determined to receive and pay out the demand United States Treasury notes as heretofore. We rejoice to make this announce ment, as it reflects credit both on the finandni judgment and the oyaity of our bonks. Milwaukee.—We quote the following from the Sentinel of this morning: The statement of the five regular banks of this city, two of which we published yesterday and the other to-day, show the following aggregates as compared with their statements a year ago: Jan. 1862. Jan. 1861. Leans- and discounts $7,395,973 $3-121,965 Deposits 1,037,417 1,805,453 Bank Currency 331.342 838,405 Specie 62,866 62,249 As may be inferred from the above exhibit, the oa>ii!g up in the money market, which was very generally expected after the 6th, has not as yet been very noticeable, and we have still to note a great scarcity of money. Exchange continues quite plenty enough to meet the demand. We quote- Buying. Selling. * New York Sight . #@,# prem. 1 prem. The banks are not selling gold.

Missouri 6s 41# 4fv Virginia 6s 49# 49# Market—First board steady; 2d Board firm. CiscuntATi.—The Gazette says oi Tuesday’s market: Our bankers experience a very moderate de mand for money; but paper is bought cautiouslv, and except to supply the wants of custo mers, there is no disposition to loan. The rates of interest in the regular way remain 10@12 $ cent. Eastern exchange is accumulating, gnd the market is heavy at par buying, and # prem selling. On outside points dealers buy veiy sparingly at par, and round sums, if pnt upon the market, would not bring better than # discount. There Is not a great deal offering, however, and wc heard of no transactions below par. Gold is very quiet. The rates are 1 premium buying, and 3 premium selling. The price having advanced in New York to 3 premium, it is held with more firm ness here: and while the trifling retail demand Is supplied at 2, round sums would not be sold- It would pay well to ship it now, bnt we do not hear of any movement in this direction. St. Louis.—The Democrat says of Tuesday's market: Exchange was dull at 4 percent, premium for Missouri money, and there is bat little If any de mand. Of course, under the'circumstances, the tendency Is downward, and we think it cannot be long before it becomes fairly equalized with the accredited currency of this State. The great em barrassment to tra’de now seems to be the scarcity •of «aail notes. Large gold is very abundant, but small coin Is *npi. take .the place of email bills. There Is little or no demand for coin, and it was boucht to-day at 5 per cent, premium forilisaonrl funds. COMMERCIAL. ■\VednzsdatEvektkg, January 8,1862.

Bread stuffs and Cotton were easier, and a decline of 6d is reported on flour, and l@2d on Wheat; hut there was no change in Com. Ibis intelligence catfscd a very dull feeling in the grain market, and a de cline was experienced; but the transactions were light. The receipts of Hogs, live and dressed, amount ed to 4,(97. The market for Live Hogs, under di minished receipts, was firm and prices advanced folly 5c SR 100 lbs, with sales of about 7,500, ata range of $2-90Q2.50 gross—the bulk of toe sales being at $335 and $2.80 for light Hogs, and s2.g@s2.B7jf for heavy. Owing .to the scarcity of cooperage, packers arc buying almost entirely Bacon hogs, and the --ad vance was more perceptible In them. Owing to the weather the market at the dose was somewhat irregular, with between seven and eight thousand left over unsold—but, being toe leavings of last week's rush, not quite so desirable asusoaL A large number of hogs are yet lathe yards swatting care foe shipment East. The thaw which set in this morning drove the’ shippers of dressed hogs out of the market, and heavy weights declined 10c $ 100 fts; but on 'Change there was a good de mand for light bogs by packers, and there was no material decline in them. The sales of light to heavy ranged from $5,60®9.90; but towards- the dose, the weather became mild and moggy, and packers generally held off—toe market for all kinds dosing dull and drooping. There was very little done in Provisions and the market was quiet. The demand for Meaa Pork was less active, and the market not quite so strong— with sales of 760 brls at for country to city, and $8.60 delivered at Peoria. Holders of round lots are not disposed to press the market on account of the advancing tendency of cooperage; but on the other band, the Canadian demand is now very light, and the scarcity of currency checks the speculative inquiry. Green Keats are in de mand at life for Shoulders, and B#c for Sides, with sales to-day of 4,000 pcs at tbosefigures. A lot of 80> pcs country-cut Bulk Shoulders (three weeks in salt) was Bold to-day at 8c loose; but this is scarce lyany criterion of the market tor city cured. I*rd is without material change—the demand tor kettle rendered being still good and the market steady, while steam-rendered is doll and drooping.

Beeves.—' The supply is good for the season, fully op to the demand, and the average quality is fair. Although there are none in the yards that can be classed as strictly premium, there are more droves of prime extra than were here last week, and several bunches have been sold at 5c lb, live weight, and within a fraction of that figure. Holders of light and rough think the market fa >,c lower on that description of st ock.Some of the latest ealesmade indicate this: but the better grades have suffered no perceptible decline. There are several causes for the dullness of the market, as com pared with last week. The decline in the New York market last Tuesday aud Wednesday has dampened, in a measure, the ardor of the specula tors, and this, together with the fact that ail the trains yesterday were behind time—the last not arriving until evening—has checked operations. Anot her cause of the inactivity is owing to the slip pery condition of our streets. Many drovers fearing that their stock wonld sustain injury; if belated, did not waitfor bids, bnt sent theircat tle across the riverearlyiutbe morning. Thecold weather of the past four days has strengthened the ice so that the largest droves can cross without danger. It was very coldat West Albany Saturday and yesterday, the mercury dropping close to zero each day. This, too, was against the cattle. Keceuts— The following is onr comparative statement of receipts at this market over the Cen tral Bail Bead, estimating 16 to the car: Cor. week This week.

This great supply, with the fact that there were 10,000 more at Sospeneioaßridge awaiting shipment has tended to restrict operations and weaken the market, notwithstanding favorable weather. Last market day two lots of fancy brought £4,10 ? 100 B»e. To4say It iff dUßcnlt to realize |4 for the same qnality: and it Is safe to say that the decline on all Eades is equal to 10c $ I'o the as compared with st week's prices.

[From the Keokuk Gate City, 6th,] The number of hogs cut by the various packers in dty down to Saturday night, Jan. 4th, is very nearly as follows; CJeghorn & Alexander 13,000 Gouman&Oo 3,400 Patterson & Timberman 6^500 Total.. ..22,500 - Prices range at present from latter for bogsaveraging 235 pounds. Hogs are plenty yet iu the country and so is corn, and at this late season the average weight is high. Farmers, look ing for a better state of things and higher prices in the summer, have packed on their own account. Some are still holding on and feeding. The num ber thus far packed here is for below the average of-former seasons, caused by the troublesome times. More have been shipped from here this winter than in any previous winter. We under stand there are plenty of funds here to buy large numbers more, provided the views of sellers ara cot too high. [From the Cincinnati Gazette, Bth.] The trade had a “spell” of the blues to-day, and the market for hogs dosed dull and heavy at $3.35 @3.35, with very little disposition on the part of packers to operate. Receipts are light,but dealers are satisfied that the season win be a long one.* A large number of hogs remain in the country, and packing is likely to be extended into February, in the meantime, prices of produce are giving way In New York, ana most articles are already rela tively lower than in market. Besides, it is al most impossible to sblp In any direction. Stocks are, of'course; getting large, and burdens are be ing pUedup in this line, which, in view of the un certainties regarding the. future of business, are notplcasantto think about. The receipts of hogs are cow ahead of last, year up to the same time. [From tho-St. Louis Democrat, Bth.] .
