We need only mention that the Company was first organized in the early part of April of this year, ana already nearly tne entire amonnt oi its cap ital has been disposed of, and the Superintend ent has really shipped Silver Bricks from the product of its ores. This appears very quick work, bnt to the known business capacity of the originators and their unfailing energy the Stockholders owe the prospects of realizing at an eany rate.

The rights of a prisoner aro as sacred as those of any other individual, if not more so; and acknowledging this. Mr. Greeley's manly candor and straightforwardness revolt at any indirect overslaughing of them.whether by outside or in side politicians, or any others; and he would have the government itself if it or any of its officials have been led into error in the past. in regard even to Jefferson Davis reverse Its action, openly, boldly, promptly taking tack false charges, if such have been made and proceed directly and as in duty bound to stand upon such others as it feels justified in doing, or abandon the whole. Ths Tribune's article is as annexed: Jefferson Davis. The House of Representa tives on Monday, on motion of Mr. Boat well, of Massachusetts, by a vote of l'J5 to 19, "Jietovw, As tne opinion of the Houe of Rep resentatives, that said Davis should be held in custody as a prisoner, and subjected to trial, according to the laws of the land." There would seem to be no room for doubt as to the correctness of one proposition here given. since an parties are agreed upon it. Tne Hoa9e says Davis should be tried; his counsel say exactly the same, and have been trying, ever since they were allowed to communica e with him, to get his case before a judge and jury. Then why is ne not tried? v no stands m the way? Judge Underwood held on ilondav. on an aD- plication for bail, that he was a prisoner of war tnereiore not DauaDie. xne iacc oemg assumed, the reason is conclusive. But how long my a prisoner of war be held after the war is ofiicially declared at an end? Suppose one were held to day as a prisoner of war, taken by G?n. Jackson aniew ritaii8 m XOJ.O, WUU1U tUiil baiuce lO Bar his liberation? Bnt how and when did Davis become a prisoner of war? He was not arrested as a public enemy, but as a felon, officially charged, in the face of the civilized world, with the foalest, most execi able guilt that of having suborned assassins to murder President Lincoln a crime the basest and most cowardly known to mankind. It was for this that 100,000 was offered and paid for his arrest. And the proclamation of Andrew Johnson and Wm. H. Seward offering this reward says his complicity with Wilkes Booth & Co. is established "by evidence now in the Bureau of Military Justice." So there was to need of time to hunt it np. Others charged with that horrible deed have been arraigned, tried, some of them long ago acquitted and set at liberty; others executed and buried: othere are now serving out their terms as convict-prisoners. Why is this one alone still awaiting trial not even indicted? Is the charge of assassination abandoned? Then it should ba retracted as publicly as it was made. Is it persisted in? Then why is he not tried on it? Can you imagine any creditable reason for leaving this matter as it is? For eight or ten months he was not allowed to see his wife or any member of his family, nor to communicate with counsel save by open letters sent through the War Department. At length the embargo is relaxed, and he is simultaneously indicted for treason. "Now," say his counsel, "we shall get his case into court;" and they attend at the very first sitting to call it on. But the government comes limping in the second day and is not ready. No preparation has been made on that side, and the case has to go over. Now if there be any reasonfor not trying the case in Virginia, it is perfectly triable in Tennessee. There is ample evidence that Jeff. Davis was at Mnrfreeeboro' in 1SG2, wielding and impelling the rebel army of Tennessee. Judge Trigg of that district is thoroughly loyal; he holds court at Knoxville, among a people as overwhelmingly loyal as Vermont. Wby has not an indictment been foand and tried in hi3 court? WhocanBai? It has a very bad look when a man officially charged with the vilest crime -known to men is not even indicted therefor, but kept in close j ail over a year without knowing on what charge; and when at length an indictment is found against him for something totally different, he can't get tried on that, but is still held inclose jail without being allowed a chance to face his accusers. We should not like this sort of treatment, and we mean to insist on fair play for friends and enemies alike. Mind, here is no question of mercy or lenity, since none has yet been solicited. A prisoner accused of heinous crimes asks to be tried, and his trial is shuffled off, while he is kept in close jail a good way on his second year. For our own part, and in behalf of some other3 who believe the true, sufficient basis ol reconstruction to be universal amnesty, impartial suffrage these two, and no more we demand that this prisoner of war, or prisoner of State, or whatever he may be, shall liave the fall legal rights secured to him by the constitution and laws of the laEd. Believing that any illegal harshness to which he may be exposed tenda to engender new bit erness between North and South, and to indispose the latter to accept conditions of reconciliation which we hold best for each and all, we shall oppose it as at once a wrong and a blunder. We have still an open, serious controversy with those who insist on re constituting our country on a basis of caste and prejudice, and we cannot afford to give them the advantage of truly representing us as making war on a fallen, powerless prisoner of war or of peace. The Poek Disease. A western letter-writer says the pork disease has appeared in Marion, Lirn county, Iowa. A whole family, consisting of eight or ten persons, was taken eick, and after an investigation It was found that they had been eating dried and smoked bam, in Its raw state, as dried beef is eaten. The physicians, who were called in at once, decided that their illness was due to trichinosTB. One member of the family died on Friday and one on Saturday, and at the time of writing three more were in a dangerous state, while three others were apparently convalescing. Before death the victims became bloated m the limbs, face and neck. They would throw np bloody mucus, and they died delirious. We Eee no evidence In these symptoms, how" ever,! that the parties died of trichinosis, the phy. sicians to the contrary notwithstanding. The effect of trichinosis would probably be very slow. 1 1 seems more like poisoning from raw and unwholesome meat. As' IaiPBESsrvE Scene. There was an impressive scene at Petersburg, Va., on Saturday last. The day was set apart for dedicating the grave3 of the Confederate soldiers in Blanford Cemetery, ana the ceremony seems to have beea observed on a most extensive scale. All business was snepeEded, and many houses draped iu mourning. There was an imposing procession, numbering abouVS.OOO men, women and children. The Express eay that open carriages and light wagons were filled with flowers and evergreens, snd scarcely an individual was to be seen who did not have a bunch ot flowers to decorate the grave of some departed fritnd. At the cemetery the scene was one of indescribable interest and beauty. Throughout that lovely "city of the dead" were scattered thousands who proceeded fr m grave to grave, and performed their solemn but eolacing work. Hundreds of colored persons participated, and many of these people bedewed with tears the last resting-place of those they had rOved la life. Several addresses were delivered, and mournful mufcic added to the solemnity of the occasion. -v The Winaxs Cigab Ship.

There were ruccors of an understanding, If not alliance, between Austria and Russia toeapport the treaties of 1S15. It was affirmed that Austria had positively refused to entertain any project for the cession of Venetis, ard had made over Hok-tein to the Ger manic Confederation. The Times, in view of this action of Austria, regards the conference a3 at most hopeless in ensuring peace, while every day makes it more clear that the three armed powers are not likely to submit their disputes to their neighbors.

The Toronto and Montreal patera have msca to eay concerning the Fenians. An Ottawa cor. respondent of the Montreal Herald under date of Saturday, telepraphs as follows; The question as to what shall be dona with Fenian prisoners is etigaging the consideration of the government. I hear that the attorney general has sent a letter to Adjutant Macdoasall on the subject of their trial, and it is probable a court martial, composed of twenty-one militia officers, will be appointed for the purpose. A general court martial usually consists of thirteen members, bnt when Schultz was tried for the affair at the Windmill, during the rebellion, twenty-one officers were appointed so that the ch irgj of a packed court roald not be made. This preoe-c-Tit ve followed in the cases which have now arisen. prisoners be convicted it Is probable those of them who are known to have b jrne any prominent part in the foray will be executed by hanging, and as for the rest they will be sentenced to penal servitude, perhaps upon the fortifications at Qaebec. Five of them, I believe, have been identified as men who left employment on the Grand Trunk railroad to join the Fenians in the States, and direct them during the invasion. In case of conviction there is little doubt that they will suffer the extreme penalty. The Toronto Leader, under the head of "Fenian Fabrications to Inflame the Hatred of the Irish Population of the States," Bays: "The American press is being made the victim of a system of falsehood. A few specimens of this criminal credulity will show the atrocious means resorted to by the Feniins to create sjmpatby for their murderous band. The New York Commercial Advertiser says: "The Canadians, following the example so often set them by the mother country, are rigor-ousiy trying their prisoners by drumhead court-martial and deliberately shooting them down. The first of the poor fellows thus cruelly hurried under the sod leaves a wife and fivCJittle ones in this city. These acts of terrible rigor on the part of the Canadians are not calculated to ailay any sympathy which may now be entertained among Americans for Fenians." No man has been tried by court-martial aud no prisoner has been shot. A general militia court-maitial could be held for the trial of invaders; but there is no legal authority to hold drumhead court martials, by authority of which summary trial and execution on the spot would take place. It may become a subject of discussion during the legislative session whether it would not be advisable to authorize drum-head court-martials; but even this is not certain. Further from the Fenians. The government is ia receipt of"intelligence from Maione, New York, dated Monday, stating that great confusion existed there among the Fenians, owing principally to the arrest of their leaders. About 1,200 of the brotherhood have been started in a homeward direction by the United States authorities within a few days past. In reply to an inquiry of District Attorney Dart, of Pottedam, New York, as to whether any of the subordinate officers and men of the Fenian prisoners should be Indicted, the Attor-ney General telegraphed instructions to indict the leaders only, and to prosecute them for breach of the United States neutrality laws with such diligence as would be consistent with the dignity of the United States. The treatment of the prisoners on their way through the Canadian towns is very rough. They are jeerea ana tauniea, ana in one instance one of them was severely maltreated by the mob. From Bnlfalo.

It states that Marshal Bazaine has received orderg from his government to concentrate the French troops at three places, Mexico, Orizaba and Poebla, to commit no more hostile demonstrations, and to embark 75 per cent, cf his force? in October next for France. If this news shall prove to be correct, affairs in Mexico are likely to draw rapidly to a crisis. Maximilian is also reported to be out of money, and to have made a raid, under the sanction of Gen. Bi-zalne, npon the chest of the French Paymaster General. There are also intimations that Louis Napoleon desires to cultivate the most friendly relations with the United States. Dfstbtjctive Fires.

Fobtbess Monboe, June 12. Mr. and Mrs. Davis have a considerable number of visitors, whom they receive in the newly fitted up quarters in one of the casemates inside the fortress, which were assigned to Mrs. Davis shortly after her arrival here, but which, until now, she has not occupied.

Crenshaw, of Richmond, was closeted with Mr. and Mrs. Davis, remain ing in the fort till this morning, when he left for Richmond, on the mail steamer John Sylvester.

As announced, a meeting was held last night at the Franklin Presbyterian Church, corner of Cathedral and Franklin stree s, to listen to Rev. Dr. Bnllock, pastor of the church, who has announced his intention to dissolve his connection with the (O. S ) Church North, on account of the recent action of the General Assembly. Tbe church was densely crowded with a deeply interested audience, many of the ministers of various Protestant denominations being present. Rev. Dr. Bullock, after some prefa'ory remarks, stated the fundamental principles of the church, among which were to keep aloof from political agitation, and to Ignore all civil and secular question?. To let politics tnter, he said, would be to destroy the moral powers of the charch; neither has any the right to trench upon or interfere with the other. These principles are taught by the church. He then made a chronological review of the ac- tionofthe General Assembly of the Church in detail, during the past five years, contending that year by year they had 6trayed away from the path, until at last radicalism had so thoroughly impregnated all their actions that the body was as much political as religions. Their conduct was stigmatized as unconstitutional, unjust and cruel. The Assembly at Philadelphia, in which a prominent member stated that he would hang Davis, Lee. and all the prominent leaders of tbe rebellion, which caueed universal applause, ending by the entire house rising and "Bicging a patriotic sone, was severely commented on as being better suited for a political gathering than a religious body. The action of the General Assembly, notwithstanding protests, went farther astray, until now there is no shadow of hope in the future that peace and unity will ever again be among them. In this connection he referred to the action of 1865, when a resolution was pass ed in reference to the organization of church government in the recovered States, providing that no pastors shall be assigned to churches in the South until they etall have sa' it-factory evidences of loyalty, and an examination of all applying for admission shall be made to ascertain whether or not they had aided in the rebellion, and the epeaker said he blushed to think that this action v as intended to have reference to one man whom they all knew. De referred also to the action of the Presbytery or Louisville, in which they declare it to be their irrevocable determination to protest sgainet the action of the Assembly in ex-clncing four commissioners of the Louisville church on the allegation of disloyalty, and declared that the church thus assumed to be more loyal than the government, itself. Each year tbe breach had become wider and wider, and the question of reunion of the Old and New School has been virtually decided. They have embraced on the ground of what they call loyal -.y, and the union is certain. Radicalism Dr. Bullock held, will be more thorough than ever, and Congregationalism will be the end. The test of church communion will be political loyalty, and belief in the dogmas on elavery. Thus the As eembly has become political rather than religious, transcending the rule of the Prince of Peace, whose kingdom is not of this world. In view of these facts, the speaker could not, with respect to himself, with a due regard to the blesfirg of God, continue his connection with tbtt body. Be had been denounced during the past five years as a traitor, as a man not to be trusted.and he had uttered no complaint.- He affirmed that he never violated any law, State, municipal, federal or military, and he demanded to be thus far justified. He had hoped that when peace came, the Old School Church would return to her sphere of work. He had rejoiced to see a reunion of the North and South Episcopalians, as well as those excellent societies, the Odd Fellows and Masons, North and South, and his soul longed for the reunion of the grand old church to which tbe love of his boyhood and labors of his manhood had been given. But the hope was futile, and was Badly given np. The union of the Old School and New School precluded any nope for the future. The speaker addressed the audience, which was deeply inUreeted, for over thre hours. La ITItlCE TWO GENTS. an eloquently earnest and able argument, and closed about eleven o'clock, his hearers remaining to the last. To-night a congregational meet ing will be held in the church to decide on the course rendered necessary by the position assumed by their pastor. The Canton Company Improvements on Its GroundsIts Condi' ion Union Railroad, &c The annual report of the Canton Company, made to the meeting of stockholders on tbe 7th inst., represents the affairs and condition of the com pany quite as prosperous as at any previous period. During the past two or three years attention has been given to the improvement of the lards more remote from the river, roads and avenues have been opened, aub-dividing large tracts into smaller parcels, increasing tha number of tenants, and opening approved eitea for improvement. The rermanent leases made within tne year produce $6,493 per annnm. These have been maae at iair rates, ana macn nigner man tne usual estimate of the value of the property. The annual income from gronnd rents is now 815,544, not liable to assessment for city or State taxes. These rents constitute about one third of the company's resources. Rents derived from dwellings, warehouses, wharfage, &c, produce $30,- ESO per annum, making the gross revenue $45,124, an increase of nearly f iu.uuu comparea witn tne estimate made a year Ego. During the year, $4,759 have been received from the sale of land. Dwelling houses have been sold by the company, and others built to a considerable profit. A new wharf has been built on the eat side of Harris's creek, which has brought land into requisition. Tbe Abbott Iron Company and the firm of Ely & Golibart, have obtained leases on the west side oi Harris's creek; the former have built a large addition to their works, and the latter have erected a large steam saw-milL Ground tas been appropriated for the reflainsc and storage of petroleum remote from other buildings, and six of these establishments have been put in operation, and it is estimated that 120,000 barrels of petroleum will be refined ia these factories annually. Oyeter-packing and frult-prererving establishments are doing a thriving business1. The property in the vicinl'y of the Bayview Asylum has greatly improved- A large malfbrewery has been established near it, and a number of brick houses put up for the operatives at tbe brewery. By the treasurer's statement of the annual expenditures, it appears that there has been pvd for salaries and miscellaneous-expenses $7,751, and fot taxes, insurance, repairs and printing Z 6,013; these two Items together may properly be considered the regular annual expenses of the company. The principal expenditures of the year have been incurred for opening roads, for new ferces and wharf, and for the introduction of hydrant water in buildings, amounting to $11,034 22. The cam expended for new build-irgs is about the same that has been realized by tbe sale cf buildings 6old. The earn applied to the purchae of stock has been received for saics of land within two years past; the proceeds of all sales of land have been applied to the purchase of stock for eeveral years; four hundred ehares were purchased in March at forty four dollars per share, making in the ent ire cumber of shares purchased and cancelled, five thousand, coeting in tbe aggregate $128,922 51, ard leaving the capital stock 45,000 shares at $16 25 paid in, or 8731.250. The value of the shares of Canton etock has eteadily increased for eeveral months past, and it will be a matter ot consideration whether or not the company will Invest its surplus funds hereafter In the purchase of its etock for cancellation at the price it now commands. The company is not Involved in debt or any obligation for the nayment of money. The extent of its expenditures are governed entirely by its receipts, and no contract is in existence involving the payment of any earn whatever. Reference Is m3de to the enlt against the Northern Central Railway Company for damage eustalned, and for repossession of a wharf lot, which has been decided in fvor of the Canton company, the damages being assessed at $18,423 24. One other case against the railroad Company has not been determined for the re covery of the road bed extending northward 'y from the wharf lot. A visit has been made by the government authorities, with reference to tbe establishment of a naval depot for coal and other naval stores, and an examination made, but Congress has yet taken no action on the sub ject, ice projector making canton the locition for the lay ing np of iron-c'ad government vessels in fresh water is also alluded to. The report Concludes witti & reference to the ' Union Railroad Company," proposed to be constructed from the Relay Houe on tbe Northern Central Railroad to tide waterat Canton.together withany lateral road to thecity of Baltimore. &c. This road would bring the produce from the Northern Central road as well as the Western Maryland road, direct to tide water. By an act of tfce Legislature the Canton Company was authorized to subscribe to the road. On this sub ject the matter was duly considered by the Bilti-timoie directors, in an informal meeting, and as they had eo authority to subscribe for a large sum, and it not being deemed advisable to ci;l a special meeting of the board for the puroose, the Baltimore directors, in order to indicate the company's interest in the wori-," and to aid in the eubecription of etock sufficient to authorize the company ta organize, made a conditional proposition to subscribe for five hundred shares and pay the firEt installment of one dollar per share, the remainder of the subscription to be satisfied upon the Canton Company giving a t tie in fee for right of way thioagh the company's ground?, on each line as may ba agreed upon by the two companies, and two hundred feet of wharf front at the end of Sixth avenue, and upon the condition that a railroad be built ft cm the Relay House to the wharf named. It may be necessary for the stockholders ia gee eral meeting, if it is deemed advisable, to authorize such subscription as may secure the building of the road, either in the form suggested in this report, or in Euch manner as may beet promote the interests of the company. The receipts for the year were $07,682 53, the expenditures for the eame time, '.$55,489 73, which, with a balance in bank last vear of $6,005 OS, leaves a balance at the end of the year, in bank, cf $1S,57 61. The Case cf John Clare. In the Criminal Court, yesterday, John Clare, indicted for the murder of Henry B. Grove, was placed at the bar for arraignment. When called upon to plead guilty or rot guilty, the prisoner was silent, and Orviile Gorwirz,Esq.,oneofhiscounsel. informed the court that they would file pleas in abate ment, and also a suggestion andaffi-Javit for the removal of the case to Ba'timore county. The pleas, suggestion and affidavit were filed, but Judge Bond has not yet signed an order for the removal of the case, further action having been postponed until to-morrow, at the request of Mr. Maund, for the purpose of considering some questions in connection with the proper issues required to be made, prior to eaid removal. The grounds of the pleas in abatement were let. That the four judges of the city of Baltimore who required by Jaw, in the month of March in each year, to Eelect 750 pereons to act as grand and petit jurors, failed to have any meetins in the month of March last or eince, for the pur-poee of making euch selection, and did not mike any eelection euch as the said law requires. 2d. That the judges did not require the r ane's and Test of the jury list to be entered in the order in which they were drawn. 3d. That tbe judges did not certify the jury books as required by law. 4tb. That the judges did not strike off from the jury list euch as had served within two years, ten days before the ctmmencement of tbe May term. 5th. That four of the grand "jurors had served within two years. 6th. That one of the jurors "had been snb?ti tuted in place of a juror excused after the commencement of the term. The State's attorney, Mr. Maund, directed the State's witnesses in the case to be brought into court that they might be recognized to appear at the court of Baltimore county when wanted, and ordered summons to be reissued against certain parties returned non est. lie stated that the summons of two ladies, returned non est, were directed to the residence of a clerk in the eheriff s office, who was related to the prisoner. A bench warrant issued lor a negro witness named Richards had never been returned, &c He had reason to think that the State witnesses in the case had been tampered with.
