St. Louis, Oct. 28.--Tho details of-the loss of the steamer Stone wall state that the vessel left St. Louis on Tuesday evening bound for New Orleans heavily laden with passengers, horses, mules, hay and other freight. The boat was burned to the water's edge. An effort was made to land, but the boat was so he'avily laden that she could not reach nearer than 1Q0 yards of the shore. The greatest confusion and ter ror prevailed. There was about 200 cabin and deck passengers on board, a large number of whom were women and children. The flames spread rapidly, and seores of men jumped into the water, and attempted swimming ashore, nearly all of whom' were lest. The pilot, engineer, striker, car penter, and 44 pass~gers are -known to ha'e been saved. Trhe captain, clerks and 'other officers, .and many passengers were lost. All the books and pa pers were lost, as were all the cattle- and other freight. Many persons died after reaching the' shore from exposure.. All the women and clildren were lost, nearly, if not all of them, being burned to death. The conduct of the passengers and the qfficers is said to have been most heroic. Such an ap palling scene has not been wit nessed on the Mississippi river-for many years. The saved were kindly cared for by the officers -of the Belle Memphis, and were ctrried to St. Louis. An interview with the assistant engineer of the Stonewa'll gives the following information: The Slarm was given at 6:30 P. MI., and in ten minutes the boat was in a sheet of flame, and every person, had deserted her; all that were lost were drowned, and none were Ilurned;of 11 women on board but 3 were saved. There was but one yawl seen, and that was taken possession of by some deck pas sengers. The last seen of Capt. Scott he was seen floating down the stream on a log. The people at Neeley's saw the light and hastened to render assistance. One man rescued 16 persons with a skiff, and had it not been for this help all would have been lost. A gentleman from Paducah, Ky., swain ashore with a lady, and at her entreaty returned to save her child, and in swimming ashore hewas grasped by a drown ing man and was comlpelled to shake him. One man was taken from the wreck so badly burned that he died on reaching the shore. Capt. Dowty, of Shreveport, La, was saved. There were 139 cabin passen gers, and crew and a large number of deck passengers; all the ladies on board were lost but one. Mlr. Fulkerson, the pilot, and the carpenter were the only ones of the crew saved. Another statement is that the fire originated from a candlel which the deck passengers had near 'some hay while playing carils. The steamer was run on a gravel bar, the pilot supposing that the passengers could wade ashore on the bar, but at the end runsa slough, and here the large number were drowned. (.)ut of 150 passengers and crew only 30 are known to have been saved. The Virginia Legislature has adjourned to meet thi second Tuesday after Congress shall have admitted that State into the Un ion. The papers publish a reported in teriew between the President and Senator Thayer, of Nebraska, on the subject of the Misisissippi elec tion, from which it appears that the President supports Alcorn. The Florida Indians, compris ing remnants of the Seminoles, Tallahassees, and Miccosukies, mIet in council to select a dlelegate to represent them in the Legisla ture. Tennessee Senator. KASHVILLE, Oct. 22.-After one of the most fierce and exciting contests that has perhaps evei characterized a Senatorial race in this country, the fight was ended to-day in Andy Johnson's defeat. lhis result was iulooked for by the public at large, as the vote of yesterday seemed to be decidedly in favor of Johnson's ultimate tri umph. The opposition, at last fully alive to the situation, held caucuses at the City Hotel last night, where the various candi dates were present. After qTite a long consultation, a decision was arriVed ato cqucentrate up on Judge.H,.,per, the Republim cans eonsent'~o drop Pletclher and vote solid for Cooper. The latter, who is a State Senator, was probably the strongest man they codld have selected, as he was, sure to draw off two of Jolaon's friends in the Senate, one of them being Edmund Cooper, (tremen-, dous Cooper,) the newly--elected Senator's brother. The new move ment was kept profoundly secret until this morning, when vigdrous measures were put in. operatiow to stiffen the wavering, and pre sent such a trout as would defeat Johnson on the first ballot. WVhen the convention was called to or der, Senator Bryant, who had hitherto supported Johnson, arose, and in a little speech nominated Cooper. He received a majority of four in the Senate. In the House the vote was .a tie, each re ei ving forty-one ,votes. The result of the ballot was re ceived with the wildest enthusi asxm, the galleries being perfectIy packed with the interested spec tators. The defeat of -J6ohnson is con sidered -an event of more than ordinary significance, considering the peculiar relation of parties- in Tennessee at the- present titme. Among the Conservatives there is a progressive, tolerant and liberal element, where the principal ex ponents.are the N.ashville-Banner and the -Memphis Avalanche. Johnson represented the retro gressive and proscriptive spirit of Tennessee politics, and wished to mold the party accordingly. His election, it was contended, would have been a triumph of Bourbon isin, and vieiving the matter hi this light, the Banner "opened' its batteries against him with tre menlous force, and it.is not say ing too mtich that its untiring. warfare against the man at last brought about his defeat. That Johnson represented the extreme I)emocrac.y it is only necessary to say that the Republicans in the Legislature voted solid against him. Judge Henry Cooper, the newly elected Senator, is about 45 years old, and is a lawyer of good abili ties. lie was a staunch Union man .during the war, is now con servative, holding liberal and -tol erant views. While not lieinng .particiularly brilliant, lie will make a, safe legislator in the National Congre.s. I-He is a brother of Ed inn nd Cooper, formerly private secretary of President Johnson. TImE CAPITAL REMIOVAL.-The project of removing the capital out WVest would seem to have more strength than Washingtoni aus believe. The Western mnemn bers are pretty well united on the subject, and in its favor. It is very likely that a trial of strength between the removers and anti-removers will conme up at the ~:t session of Cmongress. An appropriation of $3,500,000 is to be asked for to put up a new building for the State and War D)epartments, and Western men are determined, it is said, to fight the 1proposition at every stage: The Western men assert that every additional dollar expended on Federal works in T~Vashington will be made an argument against removing the capital, and they are determined to furnish no more arguments on that side. BenI. Butler said to night that sensible men would govern them selves as to holding or selling out prolperty here by the test vote on the al)propriation bill for the new WTar and State Departments. Important Decision--Yerger to be Liberated. Our telegraphic column con tains the important announce nment from Washington that the Supreme Court of the United States yestertlay rendered a lengthy judgement in the habeas corpuds case of Yerger. The Court decides that its jurisdiction in such cases is derived from the Constitution and the Judiciary act of 1789, and is not, as conten ded by the Attorney General, con fined to cases where the parties impisoned are detained by corn Kmitmlents issuinig faom inferior ivil courts.-of the United States. That is they assert theiih-junisdic tion over citizens held by the military. The Constitution, they say,. prohibits any other mode bf trial for crime- thai that by a Jurfy. The next step on the. part of Yerger's counsel Will be to bring the-petitioner piersonally before the Supreme Court by a writ of habrcas orpzus, isned by that tribu akL Yerger,- we presume, must be taken to Washington, unless coinsel'agree to his remaining at Jackson. In habeas corpus cases the body of the petitioner, if he de mands it, must be carried by his jailor before the court issuing the writ. There can be no doubt now that Yer~gr will either be reman ded to the civil courts of Missis sippi for trial or libeoated without further delay. The military corm nitment under which he is held has now in effect been pronounced illegal. So ends one of the vtlainous Radical encroachments upon the Constitution ami civil liberty. What Yerger will now do re mains to be seen. He has an action for damages against every one engaged in detaining him;, antl it is debatable whether he has not been in jeoparidy of his.life, in the legal sense, so as to form a plea in bar to a trial before a civil court. Can it be said he has not been in peril? The case is only imnportant to the public because it is a test case, and one which will form a landmark in the histo ry of America ju'risprudence. We by no means justify the act of Mr. Yerger which bisought about his imprisonmnent and this decision by the Supreme Court. . O.. Bee. Gen. Canby's Report on the Virginia Elections. Soon after the Virginia election Gen. Canby instituted investiga tions in the different" counties of the State where it was complain ed that the election was not con dluctel faiirly, for the purpose of ascertaining whether fraud had been committed or intimidation uised. The work was assigned to what is known - as the , dis trict commnanders, and they were furnished with a form of questions 'to be put to parties lraking" complaints. The district conmihainders met at the county seats of those counties where the allhgetl frauds were committed, aind heard testimony on both si~lies, after which they reported to G-en. Canby. In this way n"early' every complaint hais been inves tigatedl and it is understood Geu. Cainby will embody the whole matter in a report to the President through the Secretary of Tar. This report will probably be trans mitted to Congress for its infor mation. Military ofHeers, wlho have been engaged in this duty say Canby's report will show that the election was one of the fairest ever held, and that there was less fraud and fewer attempts at in timnidatiou than is common at al most every election in the North ern States. The cjhrges of fraud were preferred chietfly l by the VWells men or Radicals; but when put upon oath and closely ques tioned they were unable to sub stantiate them. As the only hope of the Radicals in having thd elec tion set aside by Congress and the State kept out was their ability to prove immense frauds and intinm i(lation it is thought that the report of Gen. Canby will com pletely defeat their scheme. To escape trouble firom noisy children, send them to your neigh bor's, visiting. Rates of AdretI~ L a ' g.

Many of the German emigrants but recently arrived by steamer direct, in this . city, have. already found employmen t.
