The ClfCTilt Court, Judge Piun presiding, met at IV o'clock. The TJrn4 Jury were called, and retired to niom the examlnatioa of vrttneaae. The Court took a recess awaiting the return of the Grand Jary. . ' -'- Mr. Johnaoa, V. 8. Xarthal, of Cleveland, Ohio, arrirad fhia morning. Ha vfaaaed the prisoners and Idaatlaed Copeland aa a fugitive from justice in Ohio. Hia object U rappisedjto be to ferret oat testimony laqtUcatioc the ether parties. The excitement ia unabated, and crowd of persona free the wrrooadlnf country are here.

Those carried off hare all been captured and returned to their masters. Bmowa has made no corsfesakm, but, on the contrary, say he haa fall ooundenee in the goodness of Cod, and is confident that he will reacoe him from the awrll that surround him ; he says he haa had rifles leveled at bias, knives at hia throat, and his life in aa great peril aa It now la, but that God has always been at his side. Jle knows God ia with him, and fears nothing. iin. B. fionua, member, elect of Congress, of tale District, has collected from fifty to one hundred letters from the citizens of the neighborhood of Baw house, who searched It before the arrival of eke Marines. , The letters ara in the possession of Anuw Hvwrxa, Esq., who has a large number of letters obtained from Btowa's house by the Marines aat other parties. Among them Is a roll of the conspirators, containing forty-seven signatures ; also, a receipt from Hobacb Ourut for letters, ore., re-eerred from Baows, and an accurately traced map from Chambersburgh to Baown's house ; copies of letter from Blown, stating that as the arrival of too many men at once would excite suspicion, they should arrive singly ; a letter from MiaaiAa stating that of the twenty thousand wanted, G. 8. was good for one-fifth ; also, a letter from J. E. Coo, stating that the Maryland election was about to come off, the people will become excited, and we will get some .f the candidates that will join our side. Cannon are stationed in front of the Court-house sad an armed guard is patroling around the Jail. Cape. Brown bas-consented to allow Messrs. Faulk-jser and Botts to act aa his counsel, they assuring him that they win defend him faithfully, and give him the advantage of every privilege that the law will allow. Stevens declare that he does not desire to be defended by Northern counsel, preferring Southern, and that the Court should name them. There Is a decided sympathy for Stephens, not only aa account of his sufferings, but because he has shown none of that vindictive nesa and hardihood that characterises Brown. His regret is regarded as eaaaed by the consequences of hie folly, and the examination yesterday indicated that the other prisoners have lost their confidence in Brown, and are not disposed te fallow him in his defiant course. At 13 o'clock the Court reassembled. The Grand Jury reported a true bill against the prisoners, and were discharged. Charles B. Harding, assisted by Andrew Hunter, represents the Commonwealth, and Charles J. Faulk ner and Lawsoa Butts are counsel for the prisoners. X true bill was found against each prisoner : First For conspiring with negroes to produce in-eurrection. Sen4 For treason to the Commonw ealth ; and Third For murder. The prisoners, who were accompanied by a body of armed men, passed through the street and entered the Court house without the slightest demonstration on f he part of the people. ' Brown, looked somewhat better, and his eye was sot so much swollen. Stevens had to be supported, And reclined on a mattress on the floor of the Courtroom, evidently unable to alt ; he has the appearance tof a dying man, breathing with great difficulty. " Before the reading of the arraignment, Mr. Hunter called the attention of the Court to the necessity of appointing additional counsellor the prisoners.stating lhatone of the counsel (Faulkner) appointed by the County Court considering his duty in that capacity as having ended, had left. The prisoners, therefore, bad Bo other counsel than Mr. Botts. If the Court was about to assign them other counsel, it might be proper to do to BOW. The Court stated that it would assign them any members of the Bar they might select. After consulting Capt. Brown, Mr. Botts said that the prisoner regained him, and desired to have Mr. Green, hia assistant, to assist him. If the Court astrnld accede to that arrangement it would .be very agreeable to him personally. The Court requested Mr. Green to act as counsej for the prisoners, and he consented to do so. Mr. Brown then arose and said : I do not intend to detain the Court, but barely wish to say, as I hare promised a fair trial, that I am not now in cb that enable me to attend to a trial, owing so Ik atato of my health. I have a severe wound in the hack; or rather In one kidney, which enfeebles me wery much. Bat I am doing well, and I only ask for very short delay ofray trial, and I think I may get able to listen to it ; and I merely ask this that as the string la M the devil may have his dues," no more. I wish to say, further, that my hearing is impaired, and rendered Indistinct In consequence of wounds I have : about my head. I cannot hear distinctly at all. I could not hear what the Court has said this morning--1 would be glad to hear what is said on my trial, and I am now doing better than I could expect to be under , the circumstances. A very short delay would be all I would ask. . I do not presume to ask more than a ' vary ahort delay, so that I may in some degree re-cever and be able at least to listen to my trial, and hear what questions are asked of the citizens and what their answers are. If that could be allowed me J should feel very much obliged. atr. Hunter said the request was rather premature. TThm airmigBmcnt could be made, and this question could the be considered. The Ceurt ordered the indictment to be read, so tlSat the prisoners could plead guilty or not guilty aa d would then consider Sir. Brown's request. "ifc prisoners were compelled to stand during the ant dgnment, with difflculty, and Stevens being held wprl4tby two bailiffs. Porte Crayon waa present, and tt ok sketches of the prisoner aa thus arraigned. The reeding of the Indictment occupied about twenr ty BttBu te ; each of the prisoner rrsponded to the question Not Guilty," and desired to be' tried separately. -7 Mr. fifuavVe--The State electa to try John Brown first. Jtr. tatt if am instructed by Brown to say that he. Is me&tally amA physically unable to proceed with his trial aWhia time. He haa heard to-day that Counsel f hia .owa choice w ill ho here, whom he will, of coarse, psetCer. He only asks for a delay of two or three dajs. Jt seem to me but a reasonable request, and 1 hope the Court will grant It. Mr. Hunter Ad he did not think ft the duty of the aiOBcahi for the? Cosnmon wealth, or for oo oocupy-lasTthat peeraon, w oppose anything that justice required, nrr to object to anything- that involved a sno- le cntnaderafioa of smmaafrr. where K eemld properly allowed ; yet, m regard this proposttlew to delay the trial of John Brown twos Ihre oays, they deemed It their duty that the Court, before determining matters, should be pot la poseseeieo of facts and efcunstaaeee, judicially, that they were aware of In the line of their duties, aa prosecutors. His own opinio waa, thwtlt -ms wet jwaper tm step Me trial tkts pnmnr cay, and hat there waa no necessity for it. He alluded, ia general terms, to tne conaiuon oiump with which thev were surrounded. They were such as rendered it dangerous to delay, to say nothing of the exceeding preasa re apon-the physical resource of the community, growing out of the circumstances connected with the affair for which the prisoners were to be tried. Our law. In making special pro-ristons for allowing. In the discretion of tne Court, briefer time than usual in case of conviction fur such offenders, between the condemnation and execution, evidently indicates indirectly the necessity for acting promptly and decisively, though always justly, in proceedings of this kind. Jn reference to the physical condition of Brown, be asked the Court not to receive the unimportant statement of the prisoners as sufficient ground for delay, but that the jailor and physicians be examined. As to exepetrng counsel from abroad, he said that no impediment had been thrown in the way of the prisoners procuring such counsel as they desired, but on the contrary every facility had been afforded. Able and intelligent counsel had been assigned them here, and he apprehended there was little reason to expect the attendance of those gentlemen from the North who had been writ" ten to. There was also a public duty resting upon them to avoid, as far as possible within the forms of law, and with reference to the great and never-to-be-ioct-sight-of, of giving a fair and impartial trial to the prisoners, the introduction of anything Ukely to wtaJcrn owr frtttnt position, and give strength to our enemies abroad, whether it issues from the jury in time, or whether it conies from the mouths of the prisoners, or any other source. It wss their position that had been imperiled and jeopardized, as they supposed, by enemies. Mr. Harding concurred in the objections of Mr. Hunter, on the ground of danger in delay, and also because Brow n was the leader of the insurrection, and his trisl ought to be proceeded with on account of the advantage thereby accruing in the trial of the others. Mr. Green remarked that he had had no opnortunity of consulting with the prisoner, or preparing a defence. The letters for Northern counsel had been sent off, but not sufficient time had been afforded to receive answers. Under the circumstances he thought a short delay desirable. Mr. Botts added that at present the excitement was so great as, perhaps, to deter Northern counsel from coming out, but now that it had been promised that the prisoners should have a fair and Impartial trial, he presumed that they would come and take part in the case. The Court stated that if physical inability were shown, a reasonable delay must be granted. As to the expectation of other counsel, that did not constitute a sufficient cause for delay, as there w as no cer tainty about their coming. Under the circumstancesJ of the prisoners it was natural that they should seek delay. The brief period remaining before the close of the term of the Court, rendered it necessary to proceed as expeditiously as practicable, and to be cautions about granting delays. He would request the physician who had attended Brown, to testify as to his condition. Dr. Mason thought Brown was able to go on understand ingly with the trial.- He did not think his wounds were such as to effect his wind or recollection. He had always conversed freely and intelligi gently about this affair. He had heard him complain of debility but not of hardness of hearing. Mr. Cockerel!, one of the guards at the jail, said that Brown had alw ays been ready to converse freely. Mr. Avis, jailor, sworn: Had heard Brown frequently say to persons visiting him, that his mind was confused and his hearing affot tid ; he would not like to give any opinion as to his ability to At this point the telegraph from Charletown ceased working, ow ing to the storm prevailing there.! ARREST OF JOHN E. COOK. Cham bixsbl'egh. Pa., Wednesday, Oct. 2t. Capt. Cook was arrested yesterday afternoon by Messrs. Daxiil Looam and Clauoztt Fitihioh, at Montalto, Franklin County, fourteen miles from this place. His printed commission, filled up and signed by Baowx, and marked number 4, w as found on his person, as was also a memorandum written on parchment, of the pistol presented to Gen. Washi-otos by LArATXTTz, and bequeathed to Lewis W. WAauisaroM in 16M. The pistol, he says, is in a carpet bag which be left in the mountain. He came out of the mountain iiito the settlement to obtain provisions, and w as 1 much fagged down and almost starved. He was brought to this place at 8 o'clock last night, and, after an examination before Justice Rzishie, and being fully identified by one of our citizens, w ho formerly knew him, w as committed to jail to await a requisition from Governor Wisi. He acknowledged having three others with him, one of whom was seen and conversed with, baring a blue blanket over his shoulders and carrying a Sharp's rifle and a double-barrelled gun. The former, he said, belonged to his partner, who had gone for provisions. Parties will go out in search of the others to-day. THE PRISONER AT CAjlLISLE. Cakusls, Perm., Wednesday, Oct. 2G. The man arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the insurrection was brought before Judge G a An am, on a writ of kabta corpus, to-day. Judge Watts presented a warrant from the Governor of Pennsylvania, upon a requisition from the Governor of Virginia, for the deli re ry of a fugitive named Ai-bkst Hailett. There was no positive eridence to identify the prisoner as the person named, but it was proved that the pistols in his possession were of the same manufacture as were used by the insurgent, and his dress and appearance correspond with the description giren by a person who had seen Haslxtt at Harper's Ferry. The Judge appointed a further hearing on Saturday next, and issued subpenas for witnesses from Virginia and elsewhere, and the prisoner was remanded to the custody of the sheriff : HAxaissuaeH, Wednesday, Oct. 26. Gov. Packer to-day ordered that Capt. John E. Cooa, now confined in Chambersburgh, and Haz-Lzrrln Carlise Prison, be delivered up to the authorities of Virginia for trial. RUMORED ATTEMPT TO RESCUE THE PRISONERS. Baltimozx, Wednesday, Oct 26. Considerable excitement was caused at Frederick City, this afternoon, by a report that a large body of Abolitionists had crossed from Pennsylvania to Virginia, with the intention of rescuing the Harper's Ferry Insurrectionists. A military company left immediately to assist in the defence of the Charlestown Jail. The whole affair is believed to be a hoax. SUPPOSED SEARCH FOR FRED. DOUGLASS. The Rochester Democrat, Oct. 23, has the following : "Some 'suspicious-looking characters,' of gentlemanly but official demeanor, hare been 'hanging about town for a day or two past, and it is supposed that their object la visiting Rochester is to call on Mr. Famines Docolass for explanations regarding the recent emrute at Harper's Ferry. It so happens, however, that Mr. Docolass is out of town, and his present whereabout does not seem to be generally known. The strangers are said to be connected with the United States Marshal's office deputies of that gentleman, in fact-" LETTER FROM THE HON. C. L. VALLAN-D1GHAM. ' Datto, O., Saturday, Oct 22. Ts tkt Editor of tkt Cincinnati Enquirer : The Cincinnati Gnzettt of yesterday contains what purports to be a conversation between Jobs Bsows, the Harper's Ferry insurgent, and myself. The editorial criticism. in that paper, while unjust, is, nevertheless, moderate and decent in temper and language. Not so the vulgar, but inoffensive comment of the CemTe-ai and the Onto Stat JounuU of to-day. Self-respect forbids to a gentleman any notice of uch assaults. But the report and editorial of the CreutM convcv aa erroneous impression, which I desire briefly to correct. Passing of necessity through Harper's Ferry on Wednesday last, on my way home from Washington City, I laid over at that place between morning and evening trains for the West. Through the politeness of Coi. Las, the commanding officer, I was allowed to enter the armory inclosure. Inspecting the several P00 erest there, and among them the office building. 1 came to tbe room where Bkowx and Stb-razss lay, and went in, not aware that Senator Mi- aayseaorter was present till 1 entered, and without any purpose of aklng a single question of the prtooers, and had there been aoprisoners there dMoal 1 o- interview" was ashed for by me or any one elMof JoH Uaewj awe none g ranted, whether "vo-untarllT and out of tam .in ' ... J Baomhad np voice la the. matter, the room being pea eemaOyto an who were pel mltted to enter -the amsory uMiossrre. Ail weat and came alike, without consulting Baowa ; nor did he know either mvself or the otfcef fntleman with whom he convrmed. Entering the room, I Sound Senator Mtftux, of Virginia, there, casually, together with eight or ten others, and Bcw coaverajig freely with all who chose to address him. Indeed, he seemed eager to talc to every one ; and new visitors were coming and going; every moment. There was no arrangement to hare any reporter ; nor did I observe fur some soiaatea after I entered that any were present. Home one from New-York was taking sketches of Bsowx and Ktirzs during the conversation, and the reporter for the Umid made himself known to me a short time afterward ; but I saw nothing of the UaxttU reporter till several hours later, and then at the hoU.1 in me Tills gr Ftndh.g Cioww anxious to talk and ready to answer sny one wno cnose to ask a question, ana naving heard that tne Insurrection had been planned at tne Ohio State Fair held at Zanesrille lu September, 1 rery naturally made the inquiry of him, among other things, as to tbe truth of the statement. Learning from his answers that be had lived in Ohio for fifty Tears, and bad risited the 8ute in May or June last, prosecuted my inquiries to ascertain what connection his conspiracy might bare had with the -Oberlin Rescue" Trials then pending, and the insurrectionary movement at that time made in the Western Reserve to organize forcible resistance to the execution of the fugitive slave law; and I have now only to regret that 1 did not pursue the matter turner, aszing more questions, and musing mem more fpecific. It is possible that sorue others who are so trnderly sensitive in regard to what was developed, might have been equally implicated. Indeed, It is incredible that a mere casual conversation, such as the one held by me with Johh Bbowv, should excite such paroxysms of rage and call forth so much vulgar but impotent vituperation, unless there be much mere yet undisclosed. Certain it is that three of the negroes; and they from Oberlin. and at least six of the white men, nine in all out of the nineteen, including Johh Bzown, the leader of the insurrection, were, or had been, from Ohio, where they had received sympathy and counsel, if not material aid in their conspiracy. But the visit and interrogation were both casual, and did not continue over twenty minutes at the longest. Baowa so far from being exhausted, volunteered several speeches to the reporter, and more than once insisted that the conversations did not disturb or annoy him in the least. The report in .toe New-York Herald, of Oct. 21, is generally very accurate, though several of the questions attributed to toe, and particularly the first four, ought to have been put into the mouth of " Bystander," w ho, by the way, represents at least half a score of different persons. ' As t the charge preferred of breach of good taste and propriety ," and all thai, I propose to judge of it myself, having been present on the occasion. There was neither "interview," "catechising," "inquisition," " pumping," nor any eflort of the kind, but a short aid casual conversation with the leader of a bold and murderous insurrection, a man of singular intelligi nce, in full possession of ail his faculties, and anxious to explain his plans and motives so far as was possible without implicating his confederates otherwise than by declining to answer. The developments are important ; let the galled jade wince. And now allow me to add that it is vain to underrate el titer the man or his conspiracy. Capu Johx Uaows is as brave and resolute a man as ever headed an insurrection, and in a good cause, and with a sufficient force, would have been a consummate partisan commai der. He has coolness, daring, persistency, the sto.2 faith and patience, and a firmness of will and purpose unconquerable, lie is tall, wiry, muscular, but with little flesh with a cold, gray eye, gray hair, beard and mustache, compressed lips and sharp aquiline nose ; of cast-iron face and frame, and w ltli powers of endurance equal to anything needed to be done or suffered in any cause. Though en- f raged in a w icked, mad and fanatical enterprise, he s the farthest possible remove from the ordinary ruffian, tauitic or madman ; but his powers are rather executory than inventive, aud he never had the depth or breadth of mind to originate and contrive himself the plan of insurrection which be undertook to carry out. The conspiracy was, unquestionably, far more extended than yet appears, num bermg among the conspirators many more than the hand ml of followers wno assailed Harper's Ferry, and having in the North and West, if not also in tne South, as its counselors and abettors, men of intelligence, position, and wealth. Certainly, it was ainjing the liest-planjied and executed conspiracies that ever failed. For two years he had been plotting and preparing it with aiders and comlorters a thousand miles apart, in the Slave States and the Free; lor six months he hvel without so much as suspicion in a Slave State, and near the scene of the insurrection, winning even the esteem and contidence ol his neighbors, yet collecting day by day large quantities of arms, and making ready lor the outbreak, lie had as complete an equipment, even to intrenching tools, as any commander in a regular campaign, and intended, like Naprlios, to make w ar support war. He had Sharpe's rifles and Maynard's revolvers for marksmen, and pikes for the slaves. In the dead hour of night, crossing the Potomac, he seized the Armory wuh many thousand stand of arms and other munitions of war ; and making prisoners of more than thirty of the workmen, cQicers and citizens, overawed the town of Harper's Ferry with its thousand inhabitants. With less than half a score of men surviving, he held the Armory for many hours, refusing, though cut oil from all succor, and surrounded upon all sides, to surrender, and was taken with sword in hand, overpowered by superior numbers, yet fighting to the last. During this short insurreetion eighteen men were killed and ten or more severely wounded twice the number killed and wounded on the part of Uie American force at the Battle of New-Orleans. Johs Bacvs failed to excite a general and most wicked, blcody and desolating servile and civil war. only because, tke slaves and nun-tlavtkolding white men of tkt viemtty, the- former twenty thousand in number, u outd not rise. He had prepared arms and ammunition lor fifteen hundred men, and captured, at the first blow, enough lo arm more than fifty thousand; and yet he had less than thirty men more, nevertheless, than have begun half the revolutions and conspiracies which history records. But he had not tampered with slaves, nor solicited the non-slaveholding whites around him, because he really believed that the moment the blow was struck they would gather to his standard, and expecting, furthermore, the promised reinforcements instantly from the North and West. Tlds was the basis upon which the w hole conspiracy w as planned ; and had his belie been well founded, he would unquestionably have succeeded in stirring up a most formidable insurrection, possibly involving the peace of the whole country, and requiring, certain!)-, great urmies and vast treasure to suppress it. Here was his folly and madness. He believed and acted upon the faith which for twenty years has been so persist ntly tauph! in every form tiirouekont the Free States, and which is but another uvxie of statement of the doctrine of the " irrepressible conflict" that Slavery and the three hundred and seventy thousand slavehelders of the South are only tolerated, and that the millions of slaves and non-slareholding white men are ready and eager to rise against the 'oligarchy," needing only a leader and deliverer. The consoiracv was Uie natural and necessarr con sequence of the doctrines proclaimed every day, year in and year out, by the apostles of Abolition, liut Beok was sincere, earnest, practical; he proposed no mild works in his faith, reckless of murder, treason, and every other crime. This was his madness and ff dir. He perishes justly and miserably an in-surcent and a felon ; but guiltier than he, and with his blood upon their heads, are the false and cowardly prophets and teachers of Abolition. C. L. VALLANDIGHAM. SENTIMENTS OF THE SOUTHERN SLAVES. From tke Richmond Whig. We repeat that the a.Tair at Harper's Ferry w as not an insurrection at all that the slaves had nothing to do with it that, on the contrary, the slaves themselves were terrified and panic stricken by the audacious invasion of these Abolition conspirators. We desire the Northern people especially the Northern Aboll-tionists.who prate about the oppression and discontent of Southern slaves to remember the striking and significant fact that the slaves were not participants in the late affair, and that the affair Itself was, therefore, not a slave insurrection, in any sense or to any extent, but a pure and absolute conspiracy and invasion on the part of Northern Abolitionists alone ! We wish them to put this great and instructive fact in their pipes, and smoke it at their leisure ; and they will learn therefrom another great, instructive and Incontrovertible fact, to wit : That the slaves of the South are contented with their lot, peaceably disposed, loyal to their masters, and hate a meddling Northern intruder and Abolitionist with a perfect hatred. Let them remember this truth, too, that the chief unhappiness of Southern (slaves is produced by fear of the Abolitionists by apprehension on thesr part that the Abolitionists will, some time or other, and some how or other, forcibly abduct them from their humane master and comfortable homes, and take them to the free North or to Canada ! This fact mar be new to the Northern Abolitionists : but it Is, nevertheless, a fact, and should be allowed to have its just and proper influence upon the Northern mind. The slaves both fear and hate the Northern Abolitionists, and look upon them, as they really arc, as their worst and only enemies. The Bark Laareu. BIX ErXPRJCD PLATES LASDED AT CtTBA. The New-Hiwri Palladium, of last evening says : " We learn that it is stated on good authority ia New-London that tbe bark Laurens, whose seizure on suspicion of being Intended as a alaver our readers will remember, has landed a cargo of about 600 slaves on the Island of Cuba The Captain and mate have been seen in New-York for three or four days past. This intelligence comes through passenger on a late California steamer which, touched at Havana, and well-informed persons have no doubt of lu substantial truth. We never had the least doubt from the evidence given in the trial here, that the Laurens waa intended aa a slaver, and we know that people were very generally astonished that Judge laaiaaou, should have arrived at a decision so contrary to the belief of almost every man who heard the evidence. Whether the shore report Is true or not, we think it more than probable that the Laurens has, ere this, been employed in that nefarious traffic, the revival of which seems to be the chief object of the modern Democracy. The TaKIBO or tm Ckssts. The statement that the appointment of the Assistant Marshals to take the census was to be announced in a tew days harlng been copied into our columns from some other source, we think it proper to state that these officers will not be prom ted before Spring, as the details of tbe work of the next census will not be commermHl Kr- ,h.

I WiDSsiAV, Oct. 28 P. M. The market and Money accounts from Europe by the Persia, this morning to the 15th October, though only two days later than by the previ" ous arrival, are unusually full and interesting, and' for our gTeat staples, quite satisfactory. The private mail is perhaps even more cheerful in tone, particularly from the Cotton trade at Manchester, than the circulars and newspapers. In that mar ket, the day before the steamer sailed, there wa" much steadiness in the demand for good and yams, and the slight decline in prices earlier in the week was being recovered. The trade feel aL together in buoyant spirits, and their orders for the raw material to this side are coming out unusually early, on the safer calculation than was made last year, that no advantage in price and still less in the quality and selection of Cotton is to be gained by, postponement, be the new crop ever so large. We notice that 66,000 bales have gone forward thie week from the Southern ports by far the heaviest export for the third week in October known for six years past and that of this amount 53,000 bales went to England. The improvement in price at Liverpool the week the Persia sailed is about !., placing Orleans middlings a sixteenth above d. The sales of the week, 55,000, of which Manchester took 42,000 bales. The Grain reports by this arrival, though hardly supported from Liverpool, a compared with the advance by the Quebec steamer, are again firmer from London and the provincial markets of England. The manufacturing activity and prosperity of the Kingdom, and the cheapness of money in Ixuldon, added to the belief that the late harvest in England and France is barely up to an average orifj appear to be slowly but steadily influencing better prices for Grain to a point that will author ize at least a fair export movement from this country -through the Winter. In point of quality our Wheat will compare favorably this season with the best yield of Europe, which is no mean advan tage, of course, in filling export orders. Of this grain and of Indian Corn our Bupply, though questioned perhaps in particular quarters, is certainly bey Ond the average of any one of the past five years. The ease in Money in London continue to in crease, and the London Timet is discussing what to do with it. The Money writer for that journal, after glancing at the various Public Funds of other countries, and taking especial pains to refer to past disappointments in the speculative Securities of the United States, concludes that the British Funds and British Railways must continue to ad vance in demand for investment, until the com mercial prosperity of the Kingdom takes a tum on new wars, or signs of political trouble " create alarm, or prices have attained the mania point, when the public, now ao discreet, will rush into any novel imposture that may be concocted for them." The day before the steamer Bailed Consols closed at OSJ-SOC for money, and 96S96J for the November account. Loans on the Stock Ex change are 1 J cent, and discounts at 2'3'2J cont. The Bank of England had taken 1,000,00 Government Securities by way of employing an in creasing line of public and private deposits. The payment of the Quarterly Dividends had withdrawn in small sums 354,000 Gold. It is stated from Paris, that The monthly statement of the Bank of France shows a rapid diminution in the Mock of bullion- it is, however, not nearlv eoual to the increase durine the preceding two months. During that period the Bank received about X"3.40,OO0, and it has now lost A"2.100,fM0 the total amount in hand being X23,7lO,0iiO. in the bills discounted there is an Increase of 1,230,-(K)0, which does not harmonize with the accounts in the various journals of stagnation in the general trade of the country. In American stocks in London a decline is noted in Illinois Central share to 38 dis. The Bonds 76 fa7 ex coupon. A fair demand continued for State and Federal Securities. United States 5s, of 1874, 922-393 cent. In our own Stock Market, to-lay, there is an improved business. The speculation for lower price, noticed yesterday, was renewed at the early Board with considerable vigor, and the contract largely multiplied in Michigan Central, Galena and Rock-Island, the sellers accepting 3-day bids quite freely, on account of the comparative ease in the cash certificates on the Street. There was also some disposition shown to follow down New-York Central, though the demand manifested was rather too strong to encourage the calculation of immediate profit, and 79, cash, and 79J, seller 3060 days, were the lowest pointu reached, and from these the afternoon demand carried the price back to 80 cent., at which the stock left off. The fall in the Western stocks yesterday and this morning, also appeared to bring forward orders to buy, and the whole market, before the final close of business, ; turned upward. Michigan Central, after selling, at 38), closed 39J ; Rock Island from 62, advanced to C21 i ; Galena from 71 to 72, j ; and Michigan Guaranteed from 14 to 14. Illinois Central 65, same a yesterday afternoon. Panama lell off r r cent., and Pacific Mail lost about i V cent, of yesterday's rise, closing 93 cent. Reading, Hudson, Harlem and Erie, without marked variation either way. There waa no change in the price of State securities, with less business, however, than yesterday. Missouri were offered and taken in small lots at 84 $7 cent. In Micliigan Central 8 cents, there was a decline of cent. This Company will have to renew in the course of next year, part in April and the remainder in October, about $1,200,-000 of the old debt, for which the Sinking Fund 8 cents, are provided. On a similar renewal last year, -ifaZO cent, wa lost by way of dis-count, pie Bond being taken at 70'S75, and soon after selling up to 90S95. The probability ia that the next negotiation will be effected upon more favorable ' terms, the -' pressure, upon the finance of the Company being less and a longer notice given. The Sinking Fund mortgage, all told, to cover the old and new debt, is 8,000,000, and the Capital $6,000,000. The Hudson mortgages sold, to-day, at lOlfal tor the firsts, and 78 for the thirds. Illinois Centrals were steady at 85j, and Michigan Southern Sinking Fund again sold at 50 cent. The general market dosed firm. - - , In the Foreign Exchanges for the Africa, there was leas firmness, at the close, in Bills on London, which it scarcely to be wondered at in the face of $1,45.2,070 Exchange made against BuQioa from this port, and 3,500,000 this week against Cotton from the South. Southern bin, bank drawn or indorsed, closed lWlavJlO csnL, and leading Bankers, here, 110J tillOJ cent. There ia a further liberal aupply of California bars, frem the Ma! tic's cargo yesterday, on the market for Saturday'a steamers, but the extent of the export demand is not yet estimated. There ia no change in Discounts to-day. Money on demand loan to the Stock Brokers continues to be offered to the old firm in the street at 5 V cent.

WaiaHT A Co. remark, on the crop news from the South : ' During the past week we have had some change in the weather in the South, which may affect the estimates of tbe crop later on, when the Influences are fully developed. Rain fell very frequently from the 16th to 19th hut., over a large portion of the cotton growing region. This has been followed by a lower range of temperature with slight frosts ia various sections. The frost haa not been severe enough to kill the plant, but ft may have aa influence on the further maturing of tbe bolls, should cold or even moderately cold weather continue ; this Is of course In the future. The weather since the 16th Inst, throughout the South haa not been of the same forcing or growing character as prevailed during the same time last year. It haa been good for picking, bat not as favorable for maturing as it mifrht have been. There is no change in the general estimate of the probable crop, but we think there Is somewhat less confidence in very extreme figures."

We are requested to direct attention to the advertisement of Fulton County Bonds of the State of Illinois, on private sale by Gxo. M.T.Davis, No. 47 Exchange-place. tSaleaa and Chicago Receipts. To the Editor of tkt .Vrav- York Times : The operators against the Galena and Chicago line attempt to break the force of it large and steady increase of receipts this Fall, by calling it a " transient thing," and " due only to bringing the crop to market," and also that it is only in freight after all. As the crop has to be brought to market every year, and as the Galena line has brought it every year since It was built, chiefly during these same months of September and October, this"" transient thing " seems to be a very regular matter, and comes in doe eoiirse. As the Galena line is also emphatically a freight line, and as about three-fourths of its entire business for the last four years has consisted only of freight, it is doubtless gratifying to its stockholders that this, its main reliance, should show so large an increase. Had the increase been in "passengers," they might naturally have feared it would be " transient ;" but being only in freight and the crops, it is all in the regular order of business. The three months of Fall have usually been the largest on this line, and its chief reliance ; as harvest time and the crops, and the Fall business, will not wait even to accommodate the " bears," and will crowd themselves annually into September and October. As money from " freight " is just as good as money from passengers, and as dividends have always been earned by the Galena line in this way, we don't see that the stockholders can reasonably object.
