SeABiaa Com ?We have received various inquiries whether th? bill wh'ch has been be fore Congress in varioas shapes for the last J**r: relating to depreciated Spanish and Mexican small coin, hrs become a law, and if ?o, when it goes into operation. Wo have to ?ay, that a bill fixing the rate at which these eoina will hereafter be received bj Govern ment, and reqniriog them to be tent when thna received to the mint for re-coinage, has gone through both house*, hut that in passing the House of Representatives amendment* were made to it requiri' g the further action of the Senate, and the bill is now before that b?dy. The bill provide* that it shall go into effect from and after the date of its cnact ?sent. The bill is not compulsory in it? pro visions, but it a?ems probable that on its pas sage the people of the country will take con certed action to drive this miserable swind ling carrenoy out of circulation In this city eome of our leading merchant* have, in antici pation of the final passage <f the bill, taken (he initiative in refusirg to take theao coins <tt more than the depreciated rates of Arc, ten and twenty centJ respectively. In New York city tho ferry companies have taken the same atep, and a similar movement is beirg made in Boston. Philadelphia, and other cities. The real value of Spanish quarters as eilver, making allowance for wear, Ac., is stated to be about ninety five or ninety ?;* cents to the dollar. On the twelve-and a half cent pieces the depreciation is from ten to twelve per cent, and on the six-and-i-quarter cent piecos frrm twenty to thirty per cent.

Extraordinart ArrAiR ?A merchant of New York was charged, before Alderman Knue, at theMiyor's< flne.on Saturday night, by a young lady from Vermont, with the com mission of an outrage upon her person, about eight months a>ro, which was committed while she was under the influence of aa opiate. From the testimony before tho Alderman, given by the prosecutrix, it s-ems that she became acquainted with the defendant in this city, and tnat he accompanied her to New York, and while on the road to that place ho earnestly solicited her to remain there over night. She was en route for Vermont, and declined the invitation, being anxi<-us to get home. She, however, consented to take dinner .\t a hotel in New York. Before dinner, tho defendant prevailed upon her to rofrcsh her self with a glass of wine. She immediately became insensible, as she now believes, from the cffect of some drug in troduced in the liquor When she recovered her senses she found herself in a chamber, the gentleman standing near her. She asked him for an explanation. He informed her that she had fainted, and had been carried there Without suspecting foul play, she resumed her journey, but, to Her astonishment, found herself in a short time enceinte. Boing unable to account for her condition in any other way than that abovo indicated, she informed her friends, who have becu on the look-out for the accused for some time. Saturday it was dis covered that he was in this city, and the ar rest was promptly made. By tho consent of counsel on both sides, he wrs admitted to bail in $5,060 for a further hearing All the par. ties have hitherto been considered of the first respectability.?Philadelphia Hun, Jan. 26.
