The London journals are filled with tbe pro ceedings of Parliament on tbe great party con test, to the exclusion of everything else. The Times publishes 42 columns of last night's proceedings.

It is believed they are negotl uing for surrender of Washington or giving time for the removal of woman and children. Two forta that defend Washington?Forts Lincoln and Stevens? have been taken. Wallace, wbt fought our forces at Monocacy Junction, Is (apposed to have had I5,uxi troops. A large number of them were one hundred days men, who. when repulsed, threw down their guns and scattered to the winds. Kau'z's cavalry, who figured in the raid below Petersburg, ware with Wallace. Our men ha*e captured the outer works before Washington. Removal ef Grant ? Army. Twenty-six transports and steamers, loaded with troops, 8oppos?'d to be from Grant, passed up the Potomac yesterday. Martial law has been declared, and no one is permitted to enter or leave the city. It i* rumored here that New Orleans has been captured by Dick Taylor and Price. '?For Washington." The Richmond correspondent of the Mobile Regis'er wrote on the 13th ultimo: By the time you get thia letter Abe Lincoln will know that Jub&l fcarly, one of our bast fenerals, is in the Valley, pressing hard for Washington So 1 need not keep tbe secret from you. Gen. Hunter, who is rampaging around Lexington and Lynchburg, will find himself in a trap, and unless we are much mistaken, the counter-irritaut will prove strong enough to relieve the Yankee engorgement around this city. Rodes, with his Alabamians, gees with Early; in fact, the best part, if not the whole, of Ewell's corps is now perma nently under Early, Ewell having relieved Ransom as commander of the Department of Henrico. The weather ia nnnatnrally cool, but fine for marching, and Early's men will make good tune. They started yesterday morn ing. [This shows that this march North was for a long time in contemplation.] Eating Economically* What kind of food has the most nourlahmeat and costs the least! is a question of great prac tical importance. Tbe following tables may b? studied with considerable interest by every lomily. They will show the mode of prepara tion, the amount of nutriment, and the time re quired for the digestion of the moat common articles of food placed upon our tables. A dol lar's worth of meat, at twenty-five cents a pound, goes as far as fifty cents' worth of bat ter, at half a dollar a pound. Throe pounds of flour, at eight cents a pound, Is said to contain as much nutriment as nine pounds of roast beef, which, at twenty-five cents, is S2.25; that is, twenty.five centa' worth of flour goes as far as nine times that much money spent for roast beef, as weighed at the batcher's stall. A pinto: white beans, weighing one pound, and costing seven cents, contains as mnch nutriment as three ponnds and a half of roast beef, costing eighty-seven and a half cents. Of all the ar ticles that can be eaten, the cheapest are bread, butter, molasses, beans and rice. A pound of corn meal (Indian) goes as far as a pound of flour: so that flue family flour at sixteen dol lars a barrel, and corn-meal at four cents, the latter is just one-half less expensive. If corn and wheat were ground, tnd tbe whole pro duct, bran and all, were made into bread, fif teen per cent of nutriment wonld be saved, with much greater healthfulness.

The following from Western papers, shows the effect of Friday's break down in pricea at the New York Exchange: Chicago.?The bubble has burst at last, and a reaction from tbe extraordinary and un healthy advances which it has been jar lot to chronicle for the past month has set in. This morning gold declined to 250, and was quoted dull at that figure, causing quite a panic In breadstufls, and a material decline in prices for everything. No. 2 spring wheat was very active and panicky, prices declined llal6 centa per bushel on yesterday's closing figures. There was nothing done in flour, and in order to effect sales, holders would have had to sub mit to a decline of 50 cents a .?l per barrel. Corn was dull, and sales were confined exclu sively to No. 2, which declined 4a5 cents per bushel. Tbe banks with scarcely an exoeption, have "shut down" on speculators, as the Bank of Exchange this morning proved.?Chicago Journal, Friday evening. Cimcisnati.?The produce market was so unsettled by the New York news that quota tions became impracticable. Neither bayers nor sellers of flour were willing to set prices at which they would operate. Even proposition by holders to make material concessions would hardly meet with attention. No effort was made to sell wheat. Corn retains its position nominally at Sl.D5a?l.10 for ear, at the upper and lower roads; $l.l6a?l.l- for shell.?Cincin nati Commercial, Saturday. ?y There appears to be uo limit to the de mand of the paper manufacturers for advance In the price of printing paper. The advancs dnring tbe past month has been five cents per pound, and the tendency still appears to be upwards. The New York and Philadelphia papers, in view of this continual advance, are contemplating an increase in the price of their papers, the present net receipt from subscri bers barely paying the cost of the white paper on which they print, as it comes from, tbe milk. The New York dailies, we learn, will increase their price to five cents per oopy on the 1st of Angus;. KTA San Francisco paper thus speaks of the recent adjournment of tha California legisla ture: . This delectable gang, chiefly competed 01 fools, has dispersed at last. They have been well paid for doing nothing dnring the greater part of the session, and mischief during the re maining portion. >4 Praise Him from wQom all blessings flow"?they have adjourned tor good. For two years California will be free from a plague as dire as that of the lice of Egypt, a legislature in session. tET A correspondent writing from the 5th Massachusetts colored cavalry to the Anglo African is rampant because a member of that regiment was punished for attempt at rape, as soldiers are often punished for minor offences, viz: tying one up by the thumbs for a few mo ments. The correspondent seems to think that black soldiers should be exempt from all such punishment, and even threatens a mutiny if the act is repeated; for tbe correspondent de nies that the soldier was guilty of the crime at tributed to him, but says he was thus punished for a simple shirking of duty. ?STTwo ladies were travelling trom St. Louis to Cincinnati, one of whom was asked by a fellow traveller, with whom a conversation had been opened. 11' she was married. "I was married," sighed the blooming dame, "bat alas, I know not of my husband, be he dead or alive. I heard that he was accidentally killed in Plttsbnrg a few weeks ago, and I am going there to ascertain whether the report be true or false." "Well, I've got a dead sure thing on my husband," remarked the other lady, "for I saw him buried six weeks ago." fc^The Peace party of Illinois, who are to meat in convention at Peoria on the 3d of August, to assist in tbe establishment of a 41 Northwestern Confederacy," expect to run the machine on Peoria whisky.
