Ae the affair will not oome off until some time abcut the first proximo, it is fair to presume that the enterprising auctioneer will have his power to offer, perhaps, twico the quantity named above Mr. Boieler held such a sale a few years ago. it w.ll be recollected, on which occasion all parties, sellers and buyers, wore highly pleased with the result.

April 14, 1855. The mystery in roference to the abandoning at 3ea of the ship James Cheston has occupied i considerable attention here amongst our mer J chint?, shipping men, and others. The cap taiu (White) and two mates are now under ar rest, and will be called upon to answer for their seeming miacond-ict A variety of sta'e mcnu have gone forth, all of which aro con tradictory. and of the highest degree unea^is 1! factory Vrom the most reliable testimony, it would seem that the vessel was abandoned without the slightest oau-e and that culpable ! uerelic'ien of duty attaches itself somewhere. ! There can be no doubt tba: Captain White wag j drank and ret derea insensible. as well as in j competent, fro o an inordinate ueo of ardent . spirits There to appear no motive for j atij; criminal act, and none perpetrated. The I whedo tliig thou re'ol'.cu it-elf into the faot ! that the captaia was craxy, and rum at the bottom of it This is the only reasonable ex cuse he can make. Our tcwLfcman, Col. John f3.

Ccl G.'s health is greatly improved and he l-juk* well?the disease is supposed to have been entirely eradicated. It is with great satisfaction I annoacco this fact I now learn upon good authority, that the deftlcation of Mr- Taylor, late President of tae Bank cf Commerce in our'city, will not fall short of sixty thousand dollars. Ihe in stitution, however, is inured, or holds secur ity by which it cannot lose over ten thousand dollars?probably not so much This bouse is no * again in the full tide of successful op eration, with Mr. Allnu.t at its head as I're.-i dent, aud cannot fail of complete sucoots It has the full confidence of our commercial and business community. Th j 'jue-ti^n of selling the oity's interest in the Baltimore and Ohio railroad, has t>ub sided. It proved not enly to . be an unpap a' ar but injudicious move. There could t.e found no legality to justify such an act. Ihe truth is, it wis a scheme concocted by a few of tho private stock holders, including some of our wealthiest citiiens, amongst whom might be named John llopkins, Columbus O'Dontell, Robert Ganatt 1 Sons, the bank ing house of Lee & Co., and some half dosen odiers who wished to get control of that great iaiproveaiaat and turn it to their own udvan> tage This was transparent aa ice. I loam from, gx;d authority, that the road is now doing adnvrably. and daily increasing in bu siness Ihe prosp*eta are that at no very dis tant day?probably twelve months hence? the direetou will be abie to declare a hand some dividend, and that the company will be fairly on its legs Political affairs are very quiet in our city at present 'Ihe Know Nothing* are, I suppose, "laying low for black ducks," and waiting to see what will turn up in Virginia Oar city is quito lively Thousands of Strang* ers are Lere lroin all quarters Buriress is very b i-k Money is ea.;y Amusements are flourwhiig BreaiLtuffj have obtained an awful price Flour is now higher than it has been since the late war with Kogland Siles to ?liy of Ilowird t-treet and Ci.y Mills at SlO Zj a $10 60.
