TI1L5 is a mistake';, tho Court, after rendering the original decision in tho case, extended a petition for a re-hearing, and then modified the original decree ill so far as to not pass judgment on Urownlow's proceedings in the Circuit Court of Knox county, further than would bd neccfary in avoiding costs and possession: and by tho amended or modified und final decision in tho case, tho iietition of Gov 'Urownlow to intervene, and have his Hen protected, was dimisscd, and one third of tho co.ts of the cause awarded to bo paid by him, one-third by Pickens' Ad hnihlstratora, and the jmwesMon restored to Mr. Snecd, and he to ray one-third of the costs of the cause ; the Pickens case being dispoed of, in the same way as th6 Brown low case. The modification of the decree docs not seem to have effected Mr. Snecd's interest, as the proceedings on the part of his counsel appears to have been conducted only with n view to the possession, and we might add further, that in the Chancery proceedings of tho United States Circuit Court, tho Judge held the bills good as original bills, but not sufficient then, to grant injunctions on.

Every thing in the shape of evidence that I have been able to procure goes to prove that General Fisk has wantonly misrepresented the people of Kentucky; anil that lie has done ra from a mistaken idea - that he was furnishing morbidappeiite with a luxurious rcpaU If he has a due regard for the success of his mission as an agent of the Frccdmcn's Bureau in this State, hcvill avoiil aTcforcJioe so unjust in the future.

The man arrested Yesterday by the city police, and giving Jiis name as Bowers Butcher, has been identified as an escaped I)rifloner;rom the Post Prison. He made lis escape from the jail on the night of the 7th inst., and his name is William Winters, alias Turner B. Smith.

We under-, stand that this is the only company in the city prepared to furnish French oronze and gilding for gas chandeliers, &c, and we be lieve that work entrusted to them will be performed in the most satisfactory manner. A Susncioua Character. B M. Cav- ctt Chief of Detective Police, left this city a day or two since to investigate the following case: It appears that on the 22d day of Decem ber last, a man named Howney, living in this city, desired a colored man by the name of Randall Brown to furnish him with a wagon in order to bring four bales of cotton to this city, from the farm 01 lux. V inuirop, about four miles out on the Murfreeshoro pike. Ho obtained the conveyance and a necrro driver, and started from town about dusk. After arriving within about 150 yards of the buildnur where Jiq said tho cotton was stored, Rowncy told the man to drive slowly. After arriving opposite the house of Mr. Winthrop, the driver was ordered to halt, ne said that it would bo better to drive up to where tho cotton was 6tored, but Rowncy said that it could bo rolled there. No cot ton was found, and the parties returned. About a weefc alter this, on tne 1st ot. nnuary, we believe, two mules were stolen from R. Brown, and the matter was placed in the hands of the police. It was found that this same Rowncy had been tried before the Frcedmen's Court for robbing a negro of 125, and that Downey had been sent to the workhouse. It was further discovered that a man named Frank J. Moore, living at Pleasant Grov Maury county, had. lately purchased two mules. Detective Cavett had an inter view with Moore, and ascertained that he had bought the said mules for S180, although they were considered to be worth $400. It appeared that Moore purchased them in good faith, and the supposition is that they were stolen by Rowncy. They were identi fied by Brown as his property, and brought to this city. Rowncy will probably have a trial as soon as he is released from confine ment in the workhouse.

As tho recent discovery of petroleum in various parts of this State lias excited no small degree of interest, a Tew remarks in regard to the subject in general mav not be inappropriate. the lirst attempt at manufacturing oil front coal isccncrally allowed to have bceh .made by Dr .A. Gesner, -who, in his lectures at l'rince iulwara's island, in 184G, used oil which he had extracted from coal. The improvements made from time to time in tho manufacture of this useful article are so numerous as, in some cases, to leavoita matter of doubt to whom they arc to be ascribed. Onocrcat difficulty experienced in tho use of kerosene or petroleum, was the want of a "suitable lamp, in which it might be properly burned. This difficulty was sur mounted by John 11. Austen, who caused the introduction of the " Vienna burner." which had been invented by oinc gentle man whose name we do not now recollect, but who had failed in causing it to be brought into general use. The origin of petroleum is a question about which authorities differ. It is sup posed, however, thai it is produced from the distillation of carbonic agents beneath the localities in which the oil exists. Arrangements are in protrrcsR to thor oughly develop tho oil regions of this coun try. We have seen it stated that over four hundred oil companies have Ixcn started in tho United Statc and new ones are bcing continually organized. The number of bar rels daily obtained in this country in 1865, was cstimpted at C000, but tho yield at the present time is of course much greater. Wc have no stitistics at hand showing the exports of petroleum during the last year; hut in 1S64 thcro were sluppcd from the city of New York 21,238.499 gallons, wliicli was transported to "England, Sojtland, China, .vinca, anu inucca 10 aimosi every country in the world. This was an increase of 1.- 40, S95 eallons over tho amount shinned from tho same port inl8G3. This, it will be observed, was only from a singlo port A large quantity was probably shipped from Pffiladelphia and other ports, which would vastly increase the total amount It is said by men acquainted with the sub ject that a Well can be sunk six hundred feet at a cost of 57,000, but this will of bourse, depend upon the nature of the soil and the dithculties to bo encountered. The recent excitement caused by the lanre quantities of oil struck at different ioints near the Cumberland rivet; has led commer cial men to feel an -unusual interest in this matter, which we trust will not tubside ua til the article can be broucht into marl-rt in such quantities as greatly to reduce its prcsen price. If companies, conducted by wiergwic men, are jomeo. lar this purpose, and the right spirit maniCwted, we may soon expect to coapete. even with the great oil companies of Peatwylvania ; and the reducttGB in the price of coal oil cannot ikil to be pecHliwly avaatageous, not only to jjjfiPN & to tbe Btir 'Thx SusitHE bp! Ixfhcksce." "We have a a ae in point Paskebson Co., who style themselves importers of wrae kind of imfation jewelry, Broadway, New York; desire jtlieTwe of our columns for adver JfciBg' pwpofwi.

It wo bought hero In small lots at 130 and sold at 139. . Bank of -Tennessee is bought nt40 and held at 43. Thcro was not much demand yesterday and quite considerable amounts offering for sale. Planters Bank U firm atM buying and 53 selling. Union Bank is bought at C3 and sold by Brokers atC5. A Southern money is still dull. By rcfersijK to Mr. Mark's list it will be seen that there has been quite a change in ome of the quotations. Upon the subject of the money market in New York, tho Commercial of the 8th says : The Commercial says tho stoek market exhibits rather more spirit and a slight .recovery of tone. Improvement, however, appear to bo purely spasmodic, arising out of an effort of bull opera tors to produce a reaction from tho existing de pression. The money market exhibits extreme dullness, in consequence of thr comparative inactivity in all branches of business. Application for stock loans are moderate and met mostly at 6? cent, with exception, and at 6 cent on Government call. Thcro Is a diminished supply of paper, with less demand from buyers. Strictly prime names pass at 7 V cent; ifood at 89 cent, and other erodes at lOi'ilo f. cent. Somo of tho bank aro employing their balance in tho purchaso of com pound interest notes, which, at the samo time, pay a good interest and sustain their legal tender reserve. Gold rather stronger, apparently upon tho re ported probability that tho foreign loan proposed In tho finance bill will not bo authorized by Con gress. Tho heavy decline in cotton at Liverpool has also a tendency to strengthen it Tho price touched 140 at noon. Foreign exchange shows rather more firmncs but rates aro not.quotably higher, leading drawer ask 10TJ for sixty day sterling, but tho best bills can be bought at 197. Cotton bills aro depressed and very irregular, quo tations from 10o107 for sterling. Cottox. Under tho depressing effect of tholast advices from Europe tho market is becoming dull, dull, duller. The transactions yesterday wcro very small, buyers and sellers seeming disposed to with draw from tho market. Sales in thomarkctrangol from 30 to SS cents. In tho evening the price fell toabout SuK Private dispatchcs.from New York quote middling at 4G&47.

Beck, Pastor of the Bap tist Church, Pemberton, N. J., formerly of the North Baptist Church, Philadelphia, at present Pastor of the Baptist Church, Chester, Pa, I have known Uooflanda German Bitter favor ably for a number of years. I have used them In my own family, and have been so pleased with their effects, that I was induced to recommend them to many other, and know that they have operated in astrikingly beneficial manner. I tako great pleasure in thus publicly proclaiming this fact andscalting the attention of thoso afflicted with tho diseases for which they are recommended, to these Bitters, .knowing from experience that my recommendation will be sustained. I do thi more cheerfully a Hoofland's Bitter is intended to benefit the afflicted, and is "not a rum drink." Yours, truly, LEVI G. BECK. From Rev. W. D. Seigfricd. Pastor Twelfth Bap tist Church. Philadelphia. Gentlemen: I havo recently been laboring un der tho distressing effects of indigestion, accom- Sanicd by a prextration of tho nervous system, 'umerous remedies were recommended by friend.", and some of them tested, butwithout relief. Your Hootland's German Bitters were recommended by person who had tried them, and whose farorablo mention of theso Bitters induced me to try them. I must confess that I had an aversion to Patent Medicines from tho "thousand and one" quack "Bitters," whoso only aim reemsto be to palm off sweetened and drugged liquor upon the com munity in a sly way, and the tendency of which, I fear. Is to mako many a confirmed drunkard. Upon learning that yours wa really a medieinal preparation I took It with happy effect. Its action not only upon tbestomach, but upon the nervous system, wo prompt and gratifying. I feel that I have derived great and permanent benefit from tho usoof afew bottles. Very respectfully, yours, W. D.SEIGFRIED. No. 2&tShackamaxon Street From Rev. J. Newton Brown, D.D.. Editor of tho Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge and Chris tian Chronicle, Philadelphia. Although not disposed to favor or recommend Patent Medicines m general, through distrust of their ingredients and effect, I yet know of no suf ficient reason why a man may not testify to the bencfits-ho believes himself to have received from any siinplo preparation, in the hope that ho may thus contribute to the benefit of others. I dothi the more readily in regard to Hocuand German Bitters, prepared by Dr. C. M. Jackson, of this city, because I was prejudiced against them for many years, under tho impression that they were chiefly an alcoholic mixture. I am indebted to my friend. Robert Shoemaker, Esq., for the re moval of this prejudice by proper tests and for en couragement to try them when suffering from great and long continued debility. The use of three bottles of these Bitters at the beginning of tho present year, was followed by evident relief and restoration to a degree of bodily 'and mental vigor which I had not felt for six months before, and had almost despaired of regaining. .1 there fore thank God and my friend for directing iqo to tho use of them. J. NEWTON BROWN, From A. M. Spangler, editor of tho Oulturtit, No. 25 North Sixth street, , Philadelphia, Julyl5.1SC5. Some eighteen months since I was a severe suf ferer from Dyspepsia, I wa not only unable to take plain food without suffering great distress, but had become so debilitated a to do almost un fitted for activ J business of any kind. After trying a variety of so-called remedies, nil of which proved worthless, I wa induced, nt tho suggestion of a medical fnenc. to give Hoof land's German Bitter a trial. I accordingly purchased six bottles, which were taken in accordance with your direction. ..... The result wa complete removal of all distress ing symptoms, after eating or drinking, and a full restoration of strength, so that I now eat all or dinary kind of food with impunity, and am able to attend to all the active duties of a large and arduous business a well a at any period of my life. Tho good effects of the Bitters were mani fested before I had taken tbe first bottle. I have also used it in my family with tho hap piest results, and take great pleasure in adding my testimony to that of the many others who have been benefited by them. I find great benefit from the use of a bottle in the spring and fall. Tbcy do not create a vigorous appetite.but give a healthy tono to the stomach by strengthening it di gestive power. If the abovo testimony will be the means of In ducing any who suffer from dyspepsia to give your bitter a trial (wnen it, i leei connucm, win givo them relief), it is at your service. Yours, truly. A. M. SPANGLER, 1ST. From the Rev. E. D. Feudal!, assistant editor nkr&tian Chronicle: Philadclnhla. I have derived decided benefit from the uso of Iloofiand Uenaanl)itters,andreel itmy privilege to recommend them a a most valuable tonic, to all who are sufferingfrom general debility or from disease arising from derangement ofthe liver. From Rev. D. Merrige, Pastor of the Passyunk iSaptiit cnurcli, fhiiadeipuia. From the many respectablo recommendation given to Dr. iloofiand' German Bitten, I was induced to give them a trial. After using several bottle I found them to be a good remedy for de bility, and a most excellent tonic lor tbe stnmaea D. MK Mill IK. from Rev, Wm. Smith, formerly Pastor of tho V incentown and Amivuieunew Jersey liaptut Churches, Philadelphia, Having used in my family a number ef bottle of your Hootland's German Bitters, I have to say that I regard them a an excellent medicine, specially adopted to remove the disease they aro recommended for. They strengthen and invigor ate the system when debilitated, and are useful in disorder ofthe liver, loss of appetite, Ac I havo also recommended them to several of my friends, who have tried them, and found them greatly ben ficialin the restoration of health. Yours, truly, WILLIAM SMITH. SGS Hutchinson street, From the Rev. The. Winter. D.D- Pastor of Koxborougn Aiaptui waurco. Dear Sir : I feel it due to your excellent prep aration, Hoofland's German bitter, to add ray testimony to tbe deserved reputation it bas ob tained.
