From sunr-et nntil sunrise a light will beawang from each of the schooner*. The reason given by captains cf vessel?, chartered and owne? by the United State?

The lamps placed on the schooners will give a light auffleintly strong to enable all pilots topase up and down the river with safety, provided they govern themselves by the charts provided by United 8tates Coast Survey. From and after this vessel propelled by steam will be allowed to anchor, excepting ia sueh weather aa by running the loas of the vessel or cargo might b? endangered. All masters of vessels are directed to report say ???gleet'on the part of the partlee on board ef the ight schooners, in not keeping their lights burn ing at all boars of the night.

G The simple interest of one cent, at six per cent per annum, from the commence ment of the Christian era to the close of the present year 1863, would be but the triflingeuirj, of eleven hundred dollars, seventeen cents and eight mills; but If the same principal, at tbe same rate and time, bad been allowed to accu mulate at compound interest, it would require ?hi? enormous sum of b4,840,tiOO, 000,000 of globes of Eolid gold, each eauai to the earth in magni tude, to pay the interest; and if the sum were eqoaily divided among the inhabitants of the earth uo*w estimated to be one thousand mil lions, every man, woman and child would re ceive f-4,3-10 golden worlds lor an inheritance, g Were all these globes placed side by Bide in a direct would take lightning itself, that can girdle tbe earth in the wink of an eye, 73,iK() years to travel from end to end. And if a parrott jzun were discharged at one extremity while a man was stationed at the other?light travelling l'.-J 000 miles in a second: the initial velocity of a cannon ball being about ir>00 feet per second, and in this case supposed to con tin ue at the same rate; and sound moving through the atmosphere 1120 te.-t in a second? he would see the flash after w aiting 110,000 years; the ball would reach him in seventy tour billions of years: but he would noi. hear the report till the end of one thousand millions of centuries. Again, it all these masses of gold were fused into one prodigious ball, having the sun for is centre, it would reach out into space, in alt directions, one thousand seven hundred andl thirty millions of miles, almost reaching the orbit of Herschel or Uran us: and if tbe interest were continued till the end of the present century, it would entirely fill up the solar system, and even encroach five hundred million of miles on the domain of the void beyond tbe planet Neptune, whose orbit, at the distance of two thousand eight hundred and fifty millions of miles from the sun, en? circles our whole system of worlds. The present system of figures is called the Arabic method, but it should be more proper ly termed the Indian method, because it has its origin among the Hindoos of India, lrom whom the Arabs learned it; and they, in turn, carried the art into Spain, where they practised it during their long occupation of that country. The publication of their astronomical tables in tbe form ot almanacs was the principle mean '? spreading It abroad among the surrounding nations; but so slow was the progress, that 1 was not generally established, until about the middle of the sixteenth century. General Convention op the Universal ibts.?The annual session of the General Con vention of Universalista in the United State* of America, for 1864, commenced in Eagl?? Hall, Concord, New Hampshire, on Tnesday morning. The meeting was called to order by Rev. R. Eddy, of Pennsylvania, and Rev. G. L. Demareet, of Ohio, one of the vice pr?s idents, was called to the chair. Delegates were present from Maine, New Hampshire, Ver mont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connec ticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Il linois. Tbe following gentlemen were elected officers of the Convention for the ensuing year: President, Rev. G. L. Demareet, of Ohio; Vice President, Hon. A. D. Maneon, of Maine; Sec retary, Rev. B- II. Davis, of Massachusetts. Several committees were appointed, and re ports submitted from the business committees. IO" The Richmond correspondent of the I on don Times, writing under date of August 5, says that an unfavorable account of General Longstreet's health has reached him. The General is described as suffering greatly from the acute sensitiveness of his right arm, which was still wholly paralyzed, and it was appre hended at the rebel capital that he would not be able for many weeks, and perhaps months, to resume active operations in the field. ^ Policemen cn a Strike.?The police of Wheeling, Va., are on a strike.

Defeat-The Yaa. bee Raid on ?be Rapid Anna?laceadla? r i?m ?? ? Ir h m end A copy ci the Richmond Examiner of Wed nesday, (21st,) received here, says: ?There wn no news of Interest from any quarter yes terday. Lincoln's campaign, which was pos itively1?? have crushed the Confederacy, baags fire st the naaaon of the year most favorable to active tt.tlitATy operations. We may, however, with certainty ?naect his armies to be again pot in motion before na_t snow." The Examiner esya ?there was a rumor ear rent last night that Major Oen. Robert Rhode* had been killed in the valley, and that his body bad reached stannton. We did not learn whe ther he was killed in battle or a sKtrmish, nor sny particulars whatever.'' [Note?From the above it would appear that the accounts of Sheridan's victory bad not at that time reached Richmond, or at least a,ad not been made public] The Examiner publishes the following ac count of the Yankee raid into the oouuty of Orange on Monday : ?The raiding party was about 500 strong, and are the same with whom Moeby has re cently been fighting in the vicinity of Lwsburg snd Alexandria. They came down through Culpeper, and on Monday morning a-rii-j at the Orange and Alexandria RviriM ortdge over the Kapidan, which tbey a e ,. r> ,?a to de stroy, but the Umbers b lug _r?ei., and the structure bnt a mere"Iresti. wot_, their sao oess was not commensurate with their effort. The injury to the bridge is trifling, it being only singed The raiders then crossed the Kapidan into Orange, burned Holliday's Mills, near Bapldan Station, containing a large quantity of wheat belonging to the Orange and Alexan dria Railroad Company. They then started for Orange Court House, but had proceeded bnt about two miles when they were ambus caded by some of onr Infantry, who captnred 40. killed 15, and drove the rest helter-skelter over Cae Rapidan into Cnlpeper, in their flight. Tbe frightened raiders turned ???.-e a namber of onr horses and mirles which they had picked np at tbe pastures in Cnlpeper. This ia the last of this rate. The raiders are now making tracks f_T Alt aandria. The only real damage done by them was the burning of HoUiday's mill and the wheat it contained. ?In the City Councils Mr. Scott offered a re solution to authorize the Mayor to offer a re ward of ?i.-?u for the detection of the incen diaries engaged in kindling the tires now of nightly occurrence in Richmond and suggest ing the co-operation with the police of the members of the Fire Brigade as patrolmen." From Mobile. ?Mobile, Sept. 19.?A Yankee force from Pensacola are reported to be making a raid on Pollard." From Georgia. The Macon Confederate says -.??It is cur rently rumored on the streets that (leu. Bean regard is to take command of the Army of Ten nessee." The Macon Telegraph remarks :??If the reader will consult the map, he will come to a realizing sense of the ease with which Sher man can repeat from Atlanta the combined movement by wbich he backed Johnson down lrom Daltou to the heights of Al toon a It shows bow Sherman can move by different roads, flank Harneeyille, and thence south west he would flank Macon with the same ease. Hence there is an overwhelming neces sity for such reinforcements as shall prevent a repetition of the S erman strategy from Dal ton to Otowah." ,. Necessity of a Immediate Increase in the Rebel Army?Col. Mo? h y wounded?Move ments of Federal Raider?. [From the Richmond Examiner, Sept. 20.] We publish an order this morning for the registration of all white males between 16 and 50 not actually serving with the Confederate armies in the field. The object of this order is, no doubt, to learn whether our armies may not be farther strengthened without materially im pairing the pioductive capacity of agricol ture and the mechanic arts. This is an opera tion at once delicate and important. If the power of exemption and detail has been exer cised to the extent alieged, there may undoubt edly be an important econemy in scrutinizing tbe list of indulgencies. At thesame time our authorities must bear in mind that tbe season of seed time is at hand, and any unneccessary interruption of the farmer's labors must tell upon the next campaign, both at home and in the field. In view of this we most earnestly entreat all enrolling officers and examining boards to bo earnest and diligent in tbe des patch of this business. Work day and night. It is mnch less trouble to yon to eat a late dinner, or no dinner, for a week or two, than for the farmer to ride a plough horse eighteen or twenty miles to be told he must call again, and to be published a deserter if he is not ready at a moment's warning. Promptitude is due no less to the government than toe peo ple. Let it be known what is wanted, and who is wanted. Let ns expel the tapeworm, and have directness, energy and despatch. We repeat we do not regard this order as a levy en masse. It isa review, a scrutiny, a purgative of the exempt and detailed list. An increase of our army is rendered necessary by tbe recent Yankee draft, and we can beet meet it by reviewing the indulgences granted at a day when men were not so important to as. W? ask a prompt report on the part of the ? people, and direct action oa the part of tbe authorities. We think the army may be great ly strengthened without materially impairing onr industrial or social interest. Destructive Fires Raging in Charleston. Charleston, Sept. 1-, i-t>4?A large fire oc curred here yesterday, destroying about twen ty-five buildings in Archdale, H-nntair, Clif ford and West streets. Another fire broke out this morning at the southeast corner o? Trade and Meeting streets, destroying two large man sions. When the fire was in progress about one hundred and twenty shots were fired at tbe city. Colonel Mosby Wonnded. Last Wednesday, while the gallant Colonel Moeby was returning from a scout with only two of bis men, near Washington city, he was suddenly attacked by seven Yankee cayalry. In tbe rencontre we "regret to have to state Col. Moeby received a Beali wound in the thigh from a pistol sbot. He expects to be in tbe field in a week or two. Financial?The New York Post of yester day evening says: The peace rumors by which tbe stock mar ket has been acted on by the bears this morn ing are without trustworthy foundation. Gold opened at 217, and after selling down to -l '. X, closed at 212 ",'. Exchange is more active, at 109al09V for gold. The loan market is unchanged. At 7 per cent, loans on good securities, with ample margins, are readily obtained. Commercial paper is passing slowly at former rates. Cer tificates of indebtedness continue to absorb a large amount of funds which formerly would have been invested in discounts. The stock market Is unsettled from the de pressing forces in operation yesterday. Gov ernments are qniet. State stocks are dull, coal stocks heavy, and money shares neglected. The Commercial Advertiser says : The gold market is excited and lower. With out any apparent special reason for a'decline, the price opened at 217 and fell steadily to 213, (one sale of $5,000, indeed, was made at 212.) ? rumor was started in the room that Long street, with 40,000 men, was in the rear of Sheridan, and the price again rallied to 214. There is very little regular demand and a light supply. The operations up to noon were principally "turning" transactions of the brokers. ____________________________ Tbot atHerbino Run.?A trot for 11,000, mile heats, between Mr. McCanby's ?Yellow Gal," of Norfolk, and Charles Constable's ?Hiram Temple," came off yesterday at Her ring Run, near Baltimore.
