The greatest ppirit and enthusiasm prevailed throughout the Texian RepublicAustin had not been taken, and the Mexicans had plundered and evacuated San Antonio. The Texas troops were in pursuit of the Mexicans and it was confidently expected that the latter would be completely routed It appears that the Mexican invading army wa9 much smaller than reported. It gives the Texans a better chance to retaliate The brig of war "Wharton" had been provisioned, and would be ready logo to sea by Wednesday, the Zki ult. The war steamer Z tvala, provisioned and equip ed lor naroor ana coasi ueience wna reauy iu jji# iu the east end of the Island on the 21st mat. Ta-o batteries were nearly complet ed, and flying artillery sntticient tor the defence and protection of the Island had been mounted, and was ready for service. The general enthusiasm of the community was so great that it extended even to the fair sex, and several of the ladies of Galveston were industriously engaged in moulding bullets, and making cartridges for the use of the army'ihere had been contributed by the citizens of Galveston, about twelve thousand dollars in provisions, munitions ol war, and money. The steamer Laliite and two other vessels armed and equipped have proceeded down the coast. It is worthy of remark, that the large amounts contributed in Galveston were entirely voluntary?all lias been a spontaneous free will offering on the altar of patriotism. If this is a specimen of the spirit of liberality which pervades the whole republic, the Mexicans have good caase to quake with fear ut the prospect of a combat with inch a people. |From the Gilfe-ton Gazette, Mart )>| 19 J The Houstontan of the day before yesterday states that the Austin mail arrived that n orning, with the intelligence that the Mexican force had received no accession. M'Cullough and Miller, the spieB eupl?osed to have been taken by the enemy, nave arrived at Seguin, and state that no additional .Mexican force had crossed the Kio Grande. The Mexican Hag was flying at San Antonio on the i).h. We will venture to say that it is not dying there to-day. Gen. Morehouse has been instructed to order the troops now under his command to report immediately to Gen. Somerville, "who is in command on the army," ard they have no doubt marched before this time from Houston. Capt Henley, formerly of the Rrassos and New Orleans packet, Robert Mills, and lately of the Wm Bryan, arrived in this city in the Neptune, having left Vera Cruz on the 2d inst ,nnd being the bearer of the mtest intelligence from that city. From him we have the facts which follow i? The schooner built for Santa Anna at New York, is still lying iu the harbor of Vera Cruz, in the possession of the Americans who took her out, Mexico not having as yet paid for her in full, though the money was expected in two or three days after captain Henley left. The Captain and crew who took her out have expressed their intention to leave as soon a* she is delivered, nnd some of them said that they were destined for Texas Thirty odd Mexicans, in chains, had arrived from the capital as a part ot her men, and it was believed that Santa Anna was afraid to trust her management entirely to foreigners, though an American, heretofore in the Mex-.ean service, was expected to take the command. ii. ir|iirwiiin ill'- l.ligusu sieam-r, III'1 Cliy of l>Liblin, bought Irom Capt. Cobb a? an inefficient vessel, about twenty tive years old. Among her guns is one cf great weight and size, which Captain H. thinks will shatter the whole vessel at the lirst fire. The invasion of Texas was talked of at Vera Cruza9 a thing contemplated, and tor which preparations were making, but nothing was said ofun immediate attempt. No troops for the purpose were at Vera Cruz, though there were fifteen hundred men in the castle. When full manned it requires 3,000. It was reported at Vera Cruz that some fifteen or twenty thousand soldiers were assembling at the Capital, for the avowed purpose of putting down Yucatan and Texas. Commodore Moore was otf Vera Crus on the IS h ultimo, and though the signal "an enemy in sight" was hoisted at the ensile, he caine and w ent undisturbed. We have seen a letter from Captain Fergus* n, in whica .. states nothing o| having heard firir.g at Corpus Cfisti, and Irom which we infer that ihe re port of his having heard what he believed to be an attack on that place is erroneous. [From the (SeWeiton Civilian, March is 1 The steamer Lafitte, sloop Washington, and schooner Santa Anna sailed yesterday towards the West, armed, officered and manned in the most efficient style. The Fusiliers, commanded by Cupt Swingle, end the Coast Guards, an amphibious corps, under Capt. Wade, were on board. These companies are well drilled, and. from the enthusi?e n of their members, we predict that their feet will touch the soil of Mexico before they are again placed on that of Galveston(From the Cs'vrslon Oadlt, Maich 19 | [official ] Citt ?r iiocstua, March 17, 1*12 Tlie news by express from Austin up to the 13:h inst, is that the eneiny have evacuated San Antonio, atter having plundered the place.

Caraico.an acquaintance made when on a mission during last summer, rode into town and dnired to speak to Mr. Van Ness and myself. Ha statid that his object in coming to town was to declaie to ua that the impression which he understood prevailed among us, that the party then approaching Bexar w as a hand of robbers, was false, and at the same time assured us that it waa a regular force prepared to carry on the campaign upon the highest principles of civilized warfare. He stated, moreover, that Chevullis aud Dunn, who had gone out aa spies, had been taken and were then piiaoners in his camp, ami should bo well treated. Aftar a short parley it was stipulated that there should fee a suspension of hostilities until 2 o'clock, P. M., it was then 10 A M. "A council waa then held by the oificers, and it was determined, though the step was strongly opposed by the men sml otlicer* of Bexar, that we should retreat?and the step was probably a prudent one. for we had no means of ascertaining the number of troops coming against us. " Preparations were then made for the retreat, and Van Ness aud mjself despatched into tha Mexican camp to annouuee our intention, aud that the Americana had then commenced their march.

GrNTLKMEit?I have the honor to respond to vour communication of this day, to inform you that I have received very direct intelligeace from Austin in relation to the demonstatrations made by Mexico upon our South Western frontier, so far as the true position of affairs is,known..It is impossible to determine from all the news which has arrived, what the force of the enemy is, or to what extent they may intend to press the campaign. It is certainly the duty of every citizen liable to military duty to hold himself in perfect readiness to march to such point as the necessities of the service may demand, or the movements of the enemy may require. If the invasion is to be formidable, wc may expect an invasion by sea as well as land. In that event, this place will be one of the most exposed situations on our coast, | and will require, not only fortificatious for the emergency, but the presence and vigilance of the militia, whoso duty it will be to make a manly defence. Galveston 1 presents many inducements to the enemy from its wealth j and commercial impoitance. Its possession by the enemy would inflict upon the nation incalculable injury. 1 The absence of the Navy has left this city in a most I fenceless position ; and as the officer in command of it is placed out of the reach of intelligence, it cannot be J hoped that he will be apprised of the condition of Texas, ] so as to render us probable assistance. I The President has given his attsntion to the duties of hi* .station, and he take* much pl"aiurn in atiunng the < gentlemen of the Committee, that he will permit no ] occasion to be neglected which will in his estimation redound either to the honor, safety, or glory of hii 1 country1 have the lionerto be your most obi servt. SAM. HOUSTON. 1 Highly Important from Mexico. A gentleman juit arrived at Washington, from Mexico, has handed us the following article. It may be depended on. In these times of greet excitement in favor of the American citizens, held in servile bondage by the Government of Mexico, and also for the Texian 1 prisoners, I think a short and simple statement of i the country and its condition, its revenue, ar.d its wealth, wiii be of interest to the people of the Uni- 1 tea ?rates;una as your paper is more extensively ' circulated and read, than any other, I give you the < facts as they are. I In the city of Mexico, and around it, are at this < time confined aserimtna/t (not as prisoners of war,) I nearly :t0<) men, comprising the Texian expedition. I Amongst thein are some 8 or 10 who claim the pro- i tection of the United States Government, and that on the ground that they accompanied the expedition only as traders, that they were not enrolled, nor did they know or think that the expedition was any i thing but a peaceful one. These American citizens i are heavily chained with a chain the sice of an ox < chain, or as iscalled in the United States a log chain. They are made daily to work in the city, cleaning out the dirty sewers -and if they do not work well the lash is freely applied to their bare backs?for they are nearly naked, as they only depend on the charity of the few Americans who are in Mexico for their clothing. In that condition are they daily led out?not so much for the work they do us to degrade them in the eyes of the people. The Texiaas and Americans are all treated alike, amongst these is Mr Kendall, of New Orleans. Tluv have aiveti lo them 'A! CIS. per (lav to Kiihaiat on?and it ia about half enough to purchase them the necessaries of life; and fears are entertained that they will eventually starve to death, as the tyrant Santa Anna dares not kill them. The papers ol the day have given y?u a full statement of their treatment, from the moment they were taken prisoners until their arrival at Mexico ; that statement was written by Mr Thomas Falkner, a subject of Great Britain, a gentleman of the highest character and respectability, who was liberated immediately by Santa Anna, on his arrival at Mexico. The revenue of Mexico is only from four to six millions of doll irs, although the duty on all and every thing is very high?but the Collector of the Customs charge J for the trouble of collecting. You will see running about the s'reets of Mexico, boys of from twelve to eighteen years of age, who are oflicers high in command in the army; they get their commissions by the force and eloquence of gold. livery thing is purchased with it here, and this is the patriot who shrinks with horror at the thought of being bribed. If there ever lived a tyrant, that man is Santa Anna : if there ever lived a man who never had in him one principle of honor, virtue, or any principle that could be considered a redeeming one, as a tntn or gentleman, that man is j the reptile, who is supretn dictator, and virtually ?a king?Santa Anna. He acknowledges no pow er but his army?no law but his will, lie inuliee or breaks all laws at Ins pleasure : and under this tyrant at" the American and Texan prisoner* doomed to draj out, God only knows how long, a miserable existence. The soil and climate of M? x.eo are of every variety ; the low tropical valleys which produce eveiy t.uit and flower that ever j-rew under the Heavens ; the s-u ;at-cane spontaneously grow* from year to year, producing almost pure syrup from ita juice. ?Tiie table lands are sup-rior in soil ana productions to the lands ol th- United Sta:,? when cultivated ; the plains are cov-red withinmense herds of cat le and she-p ; the mountains a e covered with goats ud fine . htirvew* eta are filled wiih silver, geld, quicksilver, copper, iron, and all orta of minerals. Coal is also found in some parts; there are thousands of at reams of water running from the mountains, surrounding the people with health? water for drink and waters their rich plains of wheat and grain during the- dry season. The largest and fairest estates all otter the country is said to belong to the church, as does in fact a very large portion of all the fine improved property in the wnole republic. It is estimated by the most sensible persons in the country, that the Talue of the propel ty belonging to the church is between eight hundred and a thousand million of dollars?divided as follows : Their plantations and farms, SOM m'llTheir real estate, houses and churches, 300 *' Their gold and silver, in coin, in images, candlesticks, paintings, altars, Ate. <fcc-, 300 " 900 mil lions 01 dollars. 1 ne lllirrvm on rm n m mui'uut U. gold and silver alone is enough to impoverish a nation It the country was peopled by any other tace than those now occupying it, it would be the most pro ductive and richest of the world. It has greater naiu ral resources, and more of them than any other spot of earthThe immense quantities of silver and gold in the churches are sufficient to impoverish the balance of theearth, and to make the Benton drops scarce ? Oh, that we had some of it here in these hard times, for the loan bill to be founded on I How easy it would it be to borrow the money then ! The silver mines, or at least the larger ones are worked mostly on English account- Ileal Del Monte, the celebrated mine of Mexico, and once the richest mine in the world, and the mine they say Sir Francis Baring was once engaged in, w now being worked to profitable advantage. The amount of silver made there is from eighty to one hundred thousand dollars per month. They have gone to an immense expense in putting up fiva or six immense large engines, and 1 am informed the company are some feur or five millions in debt. They have not made any thing for some years, until very lately, but they have opined a new shaft and find the vein very rich indeed. The mine belongs to the estate of an old Spanish Don, called the Conde Regla. As foreigners are not allowed to hold real estate, it is leased at a very small sum for a great number of years The mine is 1300 feet deep. The smelting establishment or farm, or as the Spaniards call it,the pascienda, is one of the very richest and finest of MexicoThere is a great numberof small mjnes all around, in the vicinity of Ileal del Monte,which are worked by the old Mexicans and Indians, and the silver is melted out in the old Indian fashion ; it is a very Bimpic ujirrnuuil, auu n is cuuniiuua lur ^uamn; *' silver that is made by these small miners. These mines are worked by horse power, and as soon as they get too deep to be worked to advantage, they are abandoned, and a new shaft sunk. The veins generally rua north and south, but there are sometimes veins running east and west; and when a vein is once struck, they can take the direction, and no off some miles, and open a new shaft with a most perfect certainty ot finding the same vein. The miners are paid much better than any other laborers of the country. They are paid 50 cents per day, and one tenth of the mineral they raise, which they sell. 'lhey are a poor, miseiable set of beings, (the miner*,) and go down in the mines and remain there five or six days without ever coming up; they then come up and do no! go down again until all their money and mineral is gone; they then are ready to go under ground again. This country is so rich in every thing that it would take a year to enumerate its vast resources, and did the Angle Saxon race only have sufficient hold on it to make an impression on its works, it would cause the whole world to wonder at its wealthYou ought to go down there and look at it?the women ofthe country are much very much superior to the men in every respect?they are as fine formed women as are in the world, and have n particular fondness for having foreign husbands, but to marry them you inuat adopt their religion and customs. I can't write you any more for the present, for if I should tell you of all its riches aad superior advantages I fear there would be too many want to go there and see it for themselves?and these hardt.mi-s even to mention gold and silver makes tears come in our eyes. The Sew York Lancet. This week's number of this popular Medical Journul will be issued this morning. The Lancet presents a concentrated periodical record of the prouress of medical science throughout this country and Europe. All improved modes of practice, novel surgical operations and remarkable cases are given in this publicaticn. The full reports which it uho jives of valuable lectures, places it far above any of he medical periodical of thi3 country. That the Lancet meets the wanta and wishes of the medical professions is evident, from the extraordinary circuation which it has obtained in the short space of hree months. From no quarter has a complaint jeen heard respecting the mode ip which the iMncet is conducted; and the Faculty?unanimc us for once ?declare that it is the best journal of the kind ever established in this country. But the Lancet has, in our opiuion, still sronger claims to the unprecedented patronage which it ha? already received?it is destined to effect a most important revolution in the medical world?it is drawing aside the veil with which quackery, prejudice and blinded ignorance have heretofore wrapt up the practice of the healing art?it is po/mlai izing medical science. In the number issued this morning, for instance, we have the first of a series cf lectures on Diseases of the Heart and Lungs by Dr Lovett, of this city. This gentleman has devoted several years :o the particular study of this moat important class >1 maladies, and when in Paris he had singular opportunities ct pursuing his investigations under the celebrated Louis, la these lectures the subject will oe made perfectly ineligible even to the non-professional reader. Besides Dr- Lovett's lecture there are lectures by Dr. Morr and Dr. Hall of Londonreview of new and interesting medic il works?reports of the c'iniqius?opeiation by Dr. 1! obeht Nf.lsojt, of this city?and a great variety of miacellaneou3 matter, including an extraordinary case of parturition without consciousness, and an able article on the danger of inhaling impure air. Tne Lancet is $3 per annum? single copies pix cents. More Small Potatoes.?(iovemor Seward has vetoed the bill reorganizing the Court of Sessions, passed by large majorities in the Legislature. This is hia fourth veto, but it takes a dozen such vetoes to equal one of Captain Tyler's. This vsto saves the bacon, only for a time, of our friends Judge Noah and Judge Lynch- Of course they.wtll remain on the bench for another year?but then they will have to go. In the mean time, for their uniform kindness to us, we hope the Corporation will hand over their ration, out of Tom Lloyd's money. T..?- Ft.. .

The plan proposed, we understand to be, a reduction of the assessed value of the lands to the nominal value of the stock capital, and then so to be divided into lots and parcels, that every two shares will be entitled to a quarter section of land of 160 acres, consequently at the present market price of the stock a single parcel can be purchased tor twenty dollars. It is to be hoped that this sensible example of returning reason will be speedily followed by all our landed associations, including Ked Dog Hanks, Trust Companu s, Arc., that hereafter private individuals will superintend their own business, without the interference of directors, which has always, on experience, under similar circumstances, been found to be unsatisfactory and ruinous.

In the Assembly to-day, Mr. O'Scllitan presented a petition signed by 1000 citizens of New York, praying for the passage of a law against the digging up of the dead. Mr. Lott presented a remonstrance against any alteration ol the pilot laws. Mr. Maclay presented a petition from the Bethel Baptist Chnrch in the city of New York fer indemnity. Mr. Hoffman remarked that at this late period | of the session, when so many bills were order* d to a third reading, it was necessary that some | measures should be taken by which they might be , disposed of, and he would therefore more to lay this order of business on the table. Mr. H. withdrew his motion, howerer, at the request of Mr. , Humphrey, who wished to submit a motion that | the petition presented by Mr. E G. Baldwin, be returned to him. Mr. Hortm an remarked that | the member from New York had doubtless presented this petition nnder a mistaken view of the subject, and that therefoie the house had nothing further to do with him. But he hoped the petition would not be disposed of as recommended by the gentleman from Tompkins. He would have this paper kept in possession, and the writer of it discovered, in order to accumulate testimony against him in case any further insult should be attempted. Mr. HUMPHREY withdrewfhis motion,and the or- i ders of buainoss were laid on the table until the 1 third reading of bills had been reached. The question then recurred on the bill to abolish capital punishment, and Mr. O'Sullivan, having I the floor, resumed his remarks in reply to Mr. ! Stetson. His speech was a very eloquent one, \ and was a conclusive reply to Mr. Stetson's. Mr. I O'S. spoke at (reat length, and being evidently 1 much exhausted, availed himself of the kindness of | Messrs. Jones and Davrzac to aid him in reading irooi documents he extracted from, in order to sup; { [fort the positions he assumed. At the time Ma- \ jor Davesac was reading, Mr. Lansing of ltensse' laer, in a very discourteous manner, to say the least of it, considering the peculiar circumstances, a called him to order. The Speaker decided Mr. Davesac to be out of order, and Mr. O S. was forced, notwithstanding his already exhausted state, to read the document himself. The object evidently was to choke A1 r. O'S. oil,and to move the ti previous questien. It did not succeed, however, J and Mr O'S. continued his remarks until cut oil' a by the hour of 2, when the House adjourned. t Afternoon Session.?The House resumed the consideration of the various bills on the general orders in committee ol the whole. In the Senate to-day, Mr. Strong reported the bill to provide for the exemption of household fur- J niture from seizure under a landlord's warrant, with an amendment extending its provisions to de- J ceased persons, so that a widow or a widow's chil- 6 dren should also partake of the benefits of the law. Mr. Hunt, moved the recommitment of the bill, end the S-nate refused to recommit, ayes 12? s nays 16. This vote looks well lor the liual fate of J the bill A discussion thrn ensued on it, pending which the Senate adjourned. A singular ca?c of suicide occurred in this city t on yesterday. Some two or three fellows were s detect-d just before the depaiturc of the steamboat fur New York, pursuing their light-fingered voca v tion. They were arrested and taken up to the jail. ' Upoii being locked up, one of them attempted to 1 throw himself out of the window of his Cell, but , was prevented. About half pa t 6o'clock last even ng, ke was found suspended by the neck?dead. _ tVho he was 1 hare not learned, but it is evident he could ni.t have been an old oil", nder. ti The Texas news produces but little excitement here People are ready with their good wishes r i.nd hopes for the success of the Texians, but so far only are th'-y ready. The Canadian revolt ex. a hausted all their sympathies, at least their pocket c sympathies. It has been said, however, that a pub- ^ lie meeting is to be called, so it will nut do to be premature iu our judgement. b tr'ears are entertained that the N. York School Bill wk.lbe lost in the Senate. It is certain at any rate, b tha'. it will not pass thst body in the same form as in the house. It is proposed to amend it by providing further and surer guards ugaiust tha intro- 0 ductiuni f sectarianism into the schools?that the , election for trusteoa shall be separate from and held at oilier time from any other election Alto that the office of trustee shall be honorary merrly, e the incumbent to receive no compensation for the h duties performed by him. With these amendments fi it may probably get through the Senate, but even * then u is doubtful Of the delegation from the 1st 8 district, Mr Scott will vote for the bill, and Mr. j* Varian also, if amended s.a above. Messrs Franklin and Far man will go against it. The Committee or at least a part of them, sent by the Park meet- 5 ing, are still here, and are actively engaged in the J furtherance of their object. But the friends of the . hill in New Vork have not bet n idle?they are too , well represented in the Lobby or " Third House.' j 1 send you the bill introduced by the select con.- v miitee, as a substitute for Mr. Weir's SUte Prison t Bill Though not covering all the ground that the f original one did, still it will tie of great benefit to ^ the mechanics. It will carry into cffei.t the law of j 1SJ.5, which hat heretofore been totally unobserved. I Indeed it appeared on the examination of ihe 1 agents of the prisons by the committee of the c Assembly, that they considered Ihe law of '35 as intended solely to humbug the legislature, and gave as their reason, that it provided no penalty for a ? violation of its provi.-ions. 'ihe proviso that no 1 trades should be taugbt in the prison? was got over ' in this manner- A convict on his entrance in the ' prison, was asked what vias bis trade If here- , plied shoemaker, or a cooprr. as the case might be, , ! to that trade was he pnt. If he did not know it, \ i lie was taught it, und thus was the odious feature i , csnlinncd. The bill which 1 annex, it will be seen, 1 guards against this. , Cavb Ulciscak. Court of Common Pit n?.

Th* Sixth Ward ?A meeting of democrats wis called last evening at Dunn's Sixth Ward Hotel, to nominate charter officers for the spring election-? The ward committee selected for this purpose have not reported the result of their deliberations, and the call of the meeting was, therefore, entirely contrary to all the usages of the party. The result was that the persons who were engaged in the busineis were put down, and resolutions passed unanimuutly disapproving of the call, and everything connected with it. The persons present appeared to be, almost to a man, opposed to the proceedings ot the meeting, as recommended in the advertisement calling the assemblage together. The Poaud or Aldekmb* was called together last evening by Alderman Purdy, the President of the Board, to adopt measures calculated to relieve the distresses of those persons whose property was destroyed by the destructive fires in the sixth and tenth wards, on Thursday afternoon. A committee was appointed by Alderman Bradhurst, who was in the chair, and Alderman Lee, of the seventeenth ward, introduced a resolution requesting the Mayor to call a public meeting of the citizens, in order to solicit contributions in aid of these individuals, who ars in need of immediate aid. It was unanimously adopted, and the Board adjourned. int nurniii in ihi rim, mauve 10 me removal of the bones of persons buried in the llutger's street Prtsbyterian Burying ground in Chrystie street, near Rivingtoo, and also at the Baptist B.trying ground below, was attended by about four hundred persons. Alderman Purdy presided, and the assemblage was addressed by a number of gentlemen. Resolutions were passed, asking the aid of the Legislature and Common Council to prevent the trustees or owners of the several burial places in question, Irom changing the place of deposite of persons already interred- Petitions to the Legislatnre, signed by thousands ol citizens, have already been forwarded to Albany to aid in the passage of such a law. A Mcrdeheh Dead?James Adams, who murdered his wife in January last in a most brutal manner, died on Thursday evening about 10 o'clock, in the city prison of typhoid fever. He has been sick for several days. Police ?Alderman Jones of the Fourth ward, arrested a young man named Augustus Carmichael, on Thursday evening, who, in company with several others, entered the house of ill fame, kept by Louisa Acker, No. 100 Duane street, on the above evening, and destroyed a number of pictures and a piano. He was held to bail to answer. Hcko Himself.?The notorious thtef nnd pickpocket, George Barnes, who was arrested by officer A. M. C. Smith, at Albany, on Wednesday last, in company with Gallagher and Shorty, hung himself in about ten minutes after he was incarcerated in the cell of the Albany prison He came to this country an English couvtct, and was sentenced to five years in the states prison for robbing the store nornerof Pearl and Broadway. Was pardoned out by Governor Seward. In a few months afterwards was caught in a burglary in Massachusetts and sentenced to three years, and had only been out of prison six weeks when he committed the crime of pickpocketing which produced his imprisonment anu ueain. uanagner, one 01 ins companions, was formerly sent to the states^prison lor fourteen years, and was pardoned out after serving ten years ? Hp also has been in the Philadelphia priscn three years, and it is supposed that the stole the pocketbook that led to the result of their arrest on Wednesday. An auction store has recently been robbed in Albany of $800, which no doubt was entered by ihese rogues. Shorty is confined there with Gallagher Officer A. M. C. Smith deserves much rredil for arresting these notorious Knaves, who are, without doubt, the most expert burglars and pickpockets in this country. .Child Smothered-?Achildaged about six weeks, he eouol Edward McDevitt, ot So. 40 Sheriff 9treet, was smothered while in bed with his mother on Thursday night, by accident.

One of those transactions occurred to day which are peculiar to the atmosphere of Wall street viz. the explosion of a currency bubble. Certain parties attempted to get up a corner in Long Island Railroad stock; for this purpose funds were lodged with a certain broker to operate. The pnrehases on time, buyer's option, were large, and the stock was run up several per cent, when the parties suspecting that the broker was "feeding the market,'' or selling the stock for cash through another broker as fast as he received it, on account of his principals, they procured an injunction from the Chancellor to prevent his receiving any more stock. The conse* quence is that the stock has fallen to $1J per share; the amount outstanding to be received, is said to be 10,000 shares,at an average of about $1, consequently involving a loss of about $25,000, which will fall on those bro kers who hold the stock to deliver, en whom it will fall heavily. There are rumors that the injunction was the result of a collusion between the parties, finding that the "corner" was not likely to succeed. The sales at the boar! to-day were small, and prices generally give way. Harlem, jj Long Island, 1; Paterson, Illinois, 6j; Ohio Sixes, 1; Delaware and Hud. son rose J; Bank of Commerce Scrip, 1 per Cent; United Siatea Treasury Notes, 3 p r cent dia.; United States $ per cant stocks were quoted at 98. The losses by fire last evening were nod so large as was at fltst supposed, and were distributed mostly among those offices best able to bear them. Some of the amounts were at follows:? Eagle Company, 3,ooo U ited States, 1,260 t .juitable, 1,l>00 City, 1.000 Jeif. raon, 7,o.o Bowery, 05,000 The Firenan's, Williamsburg, and North American, also sustained losses, the amounts of which we did no ascertain.
