NKVV YORK HERALD.] N?w Vork, Wcdneailajr, April '4, IMJ, The Rctra from Kei ope ? Tlie thi(>e duys later intelligence from Europe, ot wluch we give an abstract th.s morniug, is very interesting and gratifying The prices ot cotton are firm, and the sales have been large. Tnis is the best possible news that we can receive from the other side of the water. News of this charac ter tor a few months longer, would be worth at least fifty millions ot dollars to the plauters and dealers ' in thiscouutry. Another item oi important news is that which in forms us of the continued and growing success of Mi? Cushman. She has already achieved a triumph beyond all precedent. It will be recollect ed that an effort was made by toadying scribblers in some of the papers here, to depreciate Miss Uushmaii's merits and success, whilst they elevated Mr. Forrest, by representing the London Times ubdilnii with respect to the former. But it will be seen that the London limes has fallen in with the popular tide, and is as loud us auy iu its praises of Miss Cushman. It appears that there was not a dry eye in the house when she played "Mrs. Haller." The Sew Revolution?Its Character and Tendency. Mr. Dudley Selden, the whig candidate for the. Mayoralty of ilusciiy, has atteuded and addressed crowded and enthusiastic assemblages of the people iu twelve of the wards, within the last fortnight. Crowds hock every where to hear htm, and en all hands the manifestations of popular sympathy and approbation are appealing to our attention. What is the meaning of all tnis'! What does all this popular enthusiasm iudicalr ? What has caused it 1 It is very evdent that there is something more than mere party feelings and influences now at work amongst great masses of the people of this city. Wnere. then, are we to look tor an explanation of the peculiar, unwonted, and remarkable aspect of afftirs presented in this charter election 1 Tne speech of Mr. Selden at National Hall on the evening of Tuesday, the 18th of March la6t, explains the whole matter. Then commenced that movement?that new revolution, which is now agitating the people of this city throughout every ward. On that occasion and in that speech, a re volution in popular opinion and feeling was origi nated which must inevitably produce, sooner or later, results of the utmost importance and magni tude. The indications which accompany the pre sent course ot Mr. Selden and those associated with him, only mark the inception of one of those great, original movements which constitute an era in the history of human affairs. Society is constantly in a state oi transition?of pro gress. That which many are accustomed to call the old age of the world, was but ita infancy, and it is yet in the days of its adolescence. It is only the philosophic observer, however whose perception is unobBcured, and whose judg tnent is unbiased by the controlling power of asso ciations with the present, that can with any degree of clearness discern the mechanism of the pro gress which is made in human society. The mere partizan?the man who is altogether mixed up with the party politics of the hour?wjjp sees no thing beyond the sphere, and cares for nothing be yond the interests of the little clique with which he happens to be bound up, can discover nought but the struggle of a political faction in the pre sent movement of Mr. Selden. But in that very movement, the calm, reflecting, and independent mind discovers the beginning of a mighty revolu tion, intimately connected with the progress of civilization and the liberties of mankind?a revo lution based on principles similar to those which were at the foundation of that great movement which produced the first settlement of this coun try, and which led afterwards, in the last century, to a still mightier movement, resulting in the deli verance of the people of this country, from the yoke of colonial vassalage, and the establishment, under a new form of government, of an indepen dent empire. The " native" movement was an original move ment, hut baaed on nairow and exclusive princi ples. Yet it was not altogether without reason ableness and propriety of aim. It sought, ostensi bly at all events, to correct a great evil which had just been manifested. It sought to paralyze and defeat the attempt made by a misguided prelate of the Catholic church, Bishop Hughes, to introduce religious sectarianism as a political element. Bui the " native" movement, in effect, endeavored to perpetuate that very thing which it proposed to destroy. It only offered Protestant sectarianism instead of Catholic sectarianism?Protestant into lerance instead of Catholic intolerance?Protestant proscription instead of Catholic proscription?Pro testant persecution instead of Catholic persecution ?Protestant bloodshed and conflagration instead of Catholic bloodshed and conflagration. And what "nativism" offered to give, it did give. It did give us Protestaut sectarianism, intolerance, proscription, persecution, and alas! also, Protes tant bloodshed and uonfl tgration. The movement just originated by Mr. Selden is of an altogether different stamp. It seeks to eradicate from ad mixture with political affairs the sectarianism of every creed. It seeks a position and means of mfluesce far above all sectarian and party associa tions Are we not right then in characterizing it as a return to those sublime principles of truth, union, and liberty which influenced the men of every creed who first began the work of civiliza tion amid the wilds of this western world, and their descendants, also of every creed, who some sixty or seventy years ago created this republic 1 Such then) is the character, and such the ten dency of the revolution which has just commenced in this city. Mr. Selden may not be elected Mayor, but the revolution will never stop till its work be accomplished. It is ihe great demo cratic movement of the ^time. It is a gene ral up-heaving of the original elements of society, that must result in an entirely new organi tion of parties. Democracy is but another name for the sound and enlightened public opinion of any period. The intelligence, sound sense and patriotism of this age and of this country, have only found a response in the speech of Mr. Selden. Whatever may be the issue of this charter election, this great movement will sweep on, and only they who, like Mr. Selden and those associated with hun, have the boldness, sagacity and honesty to cast themselves upon it, will be borne safely in the future. Those words are not lightly spoken, and let every thinking man mark them well. Captain Bob Tvlsr and his Fsiknds the Re pealers.?It appears by the last accounts from Dublin, that the repealers are very savage against Mr. Robert Tyler. The JVation, the oigan of the repealers, denounces him as a slave-holder?and considers his ' fi-ry speeches" in this country as mere clap-trap?" hollow-heatred" attempts to ob tain the suffrages of his Irish fellow-citizens?and says that it does not want any such advocates of the cause of Ireland. Captain Bob may now ask, in the words of the song? " You might have refuse.! me your love, But why did son kick me down stsirs ?" Mails bv the CAHsau.?The Savannah papers state that they received the news by the Cambria, lrom New York, one or two days before the Boston papers, containing the foreign ad vices, reached them. Thia is explained by the fact that the news airived at our office by express, and that ike regular mail from Boston did not reach here till after the southern mail, carrying our extras, had departed. This frequently occurs. Ths Inpant Danhiuse.?Bignonna Feliciana, the pttiu ilnntru?r, who appeared at I'almo's on the occasion of Md'lle.

Appal ? lug Intelligence?The t'ounti jr etlll ?vlth_ out a Seme. % Tiie large room in the University, appropriated to die meeting of the lliBlortcal Society, was crowded to excess last evening, in consequence ol the exciting announcement that the committee ap pointed to give a name to the country was to pre sent its report. Amongst those present, we no ticed many of our most distinguished lawyers, tii vines, ductois. politicians, literati, und retired mer chants, and all seemed to have the air of ineu call ed to engage iu some very grave and import an i business Alter the transaction ol some routine business, the nomination and election ol new members, and the presentation of a few donations of moth eaten volumes, and ancient skulls, the President called for the report ol the* 'Committee on giving a uatnc to the country. (Marked sensation ) D. D Field, Etq., then rose and proceeded willi great deliberation 10 unite and unfold a MS. of ve ry imposing appearance. This was the " report " It set forth in the most pathetic terms the hwIii! 1 act that tins country was without a dent sensation)?that the unfortunate citizens when abroad had no nationality?(increased sensation) that the potts were subjected to the most torturing difficulty on account ni the present barbarous ami ridiculous appellation by which this Republic is known?

(Great sensation, and diversified manifestations ol feeling, such as shaking and scratching ol heads, blowing of noses, taking snuff, nervous cough ing, and suppressed laughing for joy that a name ha) beeuf und?uinid which Mr Field resumed his aeat.) A pause succeeded?a long, hushed, deep, respectful silence.

Mr Wetmoii.-We are now to bear a paper read by the Rev. Mr Giitwold?as 1 have not the pleasure of know ing that gentleman personally, may I ask if he is in the room 1 A pause, but the Rev. Mr. Oriswold did not appear.

Vkr/ latk from Buenos Ayres.?The clipper Tweed, Captain Hand, airived yesterday from Buenos Ayres with adviceB to the 11th of Febru ary. The Argentine Confederation are constantly in trouble. It would be an act of humanity to settle the difficulties in that quarter. The fleet of Aigentine continues to blockade Montevideo. The Admiral of the French squad ron refuses to recognise it until he receives fresh orders from his government. The subject of the non-recognition of the inde pendence of Paraguay by the Argentine Govern ment is worthy of consideration. Notwithstand ing this Paraguay will stride ahead of all her neigh bors. There were ninety-seven merchant vessels at Buenos Ayres. Of these eighteen were American. From the Wist Indies.?The Star, Pitman, ar- j rived yesterday from St. Thomas with advices to the 23d ult. We have received the Orenada Ga zette, St. Croix Avit and the St. Thomas THdende j to the latest dale. The U. S. frigate Macedonian, Commodore Per-1 ry, was at St. Thomas. We observe that the Governor of Barbndoe* was una ble to attend the Congress which was held for the jpi po?e of fixing upon the icite of the Penal settlement, ing been prevented from attending by the disastrous fir* at Barbadoei, and the demise of Lieutenant Governor Darling. The papers complain that the weather has been dry, with strong breezes, and that all Liguaneais one dried plain. We regret to find Barbadoes in such a state of excite ment as that into which it has been thrown by the recent repeated attempts to fire the city and country districts.? May Heaven grant that the wretches who could be guilty of such diabolical sets may b? detected, made publio ex amples of, and the country be again speedily restored to its former quiet Our latest accounts are to the 10th ult.

The YVhlgs of the Fifth Want In the Field LmtNlght'i Meeting at the Mai Ion House. This display was fully maul in spirit and uutn berH to any that has yeitukrn place dining the pre sent canvass. At eight o'clock the hall ol as sembly was lull to overflowing; and but a few mo ments elapsed before the officers were chosen, tie follows:? R Hysi.op, President ; (len. and A P. Fanokh, Vice Presidents; W. H. Drake and O. M Hoi.mks, Secretaries. Tluse nominations had hardly been adopted, when a voice announced that Mr. Selden was in the room; a burst of scclumation went forth ai once, and continued tor many minutes:? D. Skldkn, E*i. promptly came forward, and said :? Gentlemen-I believe it Us good iule, sud one that n applicable to political parties as well as to individuals, tail wlnu tiny have committed an error, they thoulJ se.k to retract it as soon a* jiomble; and I think the whig party,during the past Presidential election, commi ? ted a capital error, and incurred a capital punishment in const qnence. It is perlectly msnileat to those who have ?-*umined thoTstatu of things iu this city, thai the titbits of the native American party lo obtain power was to lose it te the whigs in the last Presidential election. It Is certain, und within tbe circle ol proof by tacts, thut although we had a general gain in other plact s in the interior of the country, but by tbe loss caused to the whigsjiu this city .through the iDflu f nee of uativeiam, wo lost it by perhaps 10 000 ol a ma jority. There are those who can tsll where these Iossih ccurred, and prove it to a certainty ; and we are here to ask if tbU state of things is to be continued?if we are ibis year to be operatcdupon by tbe fame cause* which were so disastrous to us in 1044. Is there any reason loi it 1 Are our suppor'ers to be detached from the whig movement in favor of tnei Native American party 7 U there any thing to be gained by such a course in any ihapo or way I Why, g.ntlemen, in tbe first place, the veiy prime and only object ol that party is incapab a oi accomplishment. A change ol the naturalization law*, ani 1 do not now sp? k my own opinion, but that ol he me*: distinguished lawyers of this country, that u change, supposing (it accomplished, wou ?1 not affect che vote at all, unless acted upon by the several States ol ihe Union ; thut the Siates have reserved, under the Con stitution, the right of determining who shtll vote, ami has never been given tithe general government at all Consequently, 'his paity has not a practicable object in view ; and the question iheu is, are tbe whigs to ca opr ? rate with them? (Loud cries of "no, ne!") 1 hope that the whigs of the fifth wsrd are resolved, as they arc every where else, to .obandon that move ment. There may be some individuals inclined to continue in alliance with that party, on the grounds ol its tendency to introduce religious questions into the con test, and there may be others who may be indooed to ad here to them for the benefits oi office, if ihey hoped tha' they wonld again obtain power, and vaiious reason* of an equally proper kiDd ; but 1 hope that no whig in the filth ward will consent to coalesce with this movement. (Or it s at " never, never," and terrific cheering.) Let me a?k, i there anything to gain from it 7 You find iio co-operation on Ihe pait oi tne whigs of the interior; they hav. attempted to disseminate their principles in some large towns with but a scanty success ; but in the agricultural district*, in the interior of the country, it has been re oounced by the whigs ns resolutely a* they *et their face* against locolocoism itseli. (Tremendous cheering.) Is it for the interest of this great city, this vast metropolis, that its opinions should be separated from those of tb< ?reat whig fparty of the State 7 If you think thvro i? any advantage?if you believe there is any good, any wisdom, in the principles of the great whig party, I do hope you will at once, and for ever, abandon that native confederacy. The change that took place in our city government last spring, put into pow er a set oi men who promised reformation in the city administration, and economy in the expenditure of the public money. Have they accomplished these promt ?es? I apprehendkhat npon examination of the facts, it will be found they did not?they failed in both. L*t u? see what description of men they putin office. Among the rest they selected two Justices, one oi -which has a - ready been tried and discharged from bis office for mal administration and misconduct; and another is to be dis posed of iu the same wsy. In addition to this, the Attor ney of the Corporation has been dismissed for similar rea sons. Now, gestlemen. in the history of other parties we can find|no instances of this nature. It proves one thing; t clearly indicates that the men who compose that party ire men tofwhom power should not be trusted. (Ap planse) I ask you,can you not find among the great num ber of individuals of the whig partyfmen of respectability, ot character, of intelligence, into whose hands you may commit tbe affairs of the city without running after these new-fangled pretenders?a set of men of whom you know nothing, and whose character baa been established by no me thing done for the benefit of the public. Gentlemen I took occasion to state at a late meeting that, after an at tentive examination ot the list of whig nominations, have never in the whole time of my experience in pol ?ics, known a list of names ot men proposed a* candidates for office more worthy ol taking charge of the city affair* than are now to be your candidates in the approaching spring election. (Loud cheers.) And in this state o' hinga, are the whigs going to abandon their candi dates 7 (Cries of "no, no ") Do you b?lieve it is fot ?he interest of the city, or of yourselves, that any man should abandon the whig poity or go over to the party now in power? Gentlemen, in ma king those enquiries, 1 do nat make them under any fselingof depression. I will confess that I was doubtful when present on the occasion of tha first announcement ol'these nominations at National Hall: Dut let me tell you, I do not doubt now. (Great cheering.) I will not take upon me to speak confidently of the Filth ward: but 1 can state, that in all the wards which 1 have visited, the whigs intend to resolutely and unflinchingly sustain their Doauiistions throughout. (Loud and long continued cheering ) And they can do it not only on whig princi ple*, but in consideration of local and personal interests; ior they have a body of men presented to them who are capable and willing to see Iheir inter* sts, in detail and in tbe aggregate, protected. (Applause) Gentlemen, al though I am a candidate for the high office of Mayor?the highest honor that the people of this city can confer?I have no unwillingness to go for that office. 1 think 1 should have hesitated to go and speak to tbe whigs of this city of my own nomination; but 1 consider that the great interests of the whig party, not only here, but all ever ?he country, depend upon their formation in line, and firm array, in the seventeen wards of New York. (Great cheering.) And if I can render you any service, I am ready to do it?I shall not flinch from my post. Gentlemen, 1 am even aur* that already som? good has been done. That oneol he effect* produced by the action of the whig party ha* been, to destroy to a considerable degree, that spirit of ir ritation, that bad nlood and discontent which were exhi biting themselves in sur oity in consequence el the mov< ment of the native American party, and which was not based od any great principle, but arose from motives ane feelings which strike at the peace and stability of society itself. The effect of that was, to set neighbor against neighbor, and proscribe whole classes on account of th* places of their birth or parentage. This must never be admitted under a government like ours?in this land ot freedom?among a people, all of whom claim an origin trom one or other of the great nations oi Europe. We ar? all the descendants of smigrsnts. We are here either at emigrants or the descendants of emigrants, the subjects of a government such as no people were ever blesae with. With a redunlancy of comforts no people ever be fore enjoyed. Wi h peace and plenty and happiness ail .? ' . . " .11. ?ii _ A." 1 -1 l.i.. .ka/l kn n around.-(Cheering.) And is this to be disturbed bye ovement lr party movement lrom which no possible advantage can be derived? Why there is some merit in the declare ions of the old political parties, for they stand on broad ground and well defined issues?and although I feel whig principles are right, 1 will admit that those on the othe: aide are maintaining great principles?but, as it seeors to me, great errors.?[Prolonged applause.) In my whole political experience, and that haa not been circumscribed, 1 know of no set of principles so tensble or sound s? those of the whigs at the last election. Not a point they toek or they maintained, but they were maintainirg the great interests, the honor and tbe prosperity of the nation (Applause.) Among them was the distribution of th? sale of the public lands among the people for State benefit and purposes?if not regard for the wants of tha general government; they sought power to effect a limitation of ?he power and the oorruption of the government of thb i Union?[cheers]?and another settled purpose was to re strain and limit the patronage ef that government Now. gentlemen, I say, with the zeal and skill evinced in tht movements of the democraticSparty?with suchasetol principles to stand upon, they would not have left an op ponent from Maine to New Orleans. And are the whig' to be broken down by a psrty simply existing bj the force of its own organization?without a single principle to rally upon? I do not believa it; nor do 1 be lieve that the whigs of New York will abandon their principles; but they will retain possession not only ol the city, bat of the State government, by depriving the preeent incumbents of office. (Cheers.) Gentlemen, po litical parties are not organic* d in a day? th'y do not grow up liko Jonah's gourd. Thsy are the result or years of reflection. In their operation they bring before the country its ablest and greatest men, who take a position on one side or another, according to tbeir difference ol opinion; and now you are called upon In this city to have all your able men let ailde, in order to yield to an other aet of individual*, who can scarcely present a man aii a statesman, or distinguished in public life, or known to the people of this country. (Tremendous applause) Can any man point me to a single man in the native Ame rican party,oi education,of standing, or of capacity lor the duties of government? (A voice?"Yes, James Har per *') With regard to the ailairs of the city, that is one thing, but I speak of general government; for it is well known that there is a desire and a project to carry thsir designs into effect in re lation to national policy, and if they only could succeed this spring in electing their candidates, you would see a Native American ondidate for President and Governor on the earliest occasion. And let me ask tou are the whig* of New York to be swept a?ty by tne*e|men.'?(Loud cries of "never1, never!" and much cheering ) As men I respect them?but I cannot as na tive Americans?(Great applause) But let me ask this gentlemen, what hat James Harper ever done to distin guish himself from bis (allow citizens? What has be ever dene for which they can feel more grateful to him than to thousands in this city? What are the claims ot tames Ha. par to statesmanship? Let the |M>ople answer I Let any man who can, name the act; let it be made manifeat, and 1 shall give him credit for it, and honor him as a public benefactor. I shall tell you what he has done; he ha* co-operated in exciting the pessien* and religious pre judices of the people?(Renewed appUnse.) Am I not right in saying so ? ("You are, you aro ") Let me ash what has he done to entitle him to more confl denco than Ave hundred men I could And in the fifth ward, in point oi capg-ity. And although this may seem very improper to some to aay?I think I have seen nothing of this kind. Not that 1 claim superior .nerit; the only ere lit I claim is that of being the candi di.t? of the great whig party ol New York (Applause.) Now, gentlemen, I am not so minutely acqusintsd wi'h the city government-not having been incflioe-tosay how (ar Mr. Harper is responsible for bis agents, or bow much he may participate in the acts of The Common Council; but I dare say, that it Mr. Harper is responsible, many acta ot those in ottie.e rpeek out in term* of deep re proach. I have made some details elsewhere and m-ght lie thought tedious if 1 again gave them here, bin I wish to make a few remarks as certain misstatements have ap pe tred in print, which are utterly incorrect and not what I intended.

There appears to be a uuion of interests that must t xert a powerful influence for the public good Ca pitalists of this cily and inhabitants of this State, puraue a oourae in all their public works, totally opposite to that pursued by the capitalists of Boston and the people oi New England. Here most of the charters obtained lor railroads, *c ,are applied for by speculators w ho have ne other object in view but the creation of a stock to use in Wall at, for cor nering operations. Companies are formed and many of our most wealthy and influential sit zsns are tnduoad in some way to land their means to gat the stock taken, but they go no further. They do not step forward and subscribe largely themselves. They do not set an example for others to follow, but suffer their names to be used by stock specu lators to got up bubbles (or the purpose of fleecing those who place too much confidence in their representations. This is not tha case at tha East. The maxim that union ia strength appears to be uppermost in tho mmda of the people of that section, as they ia variably sot upon that prineiple As an evideaeo of the beaefit do ivvd from a use of this priociple, we need go no further than the city of Troy, in tuis State. The citizens of that place have, by a complete combination of interests, bean able to build it up and to successfully compete with Alba ny in many branches of business. They have, by a con ceutration of capital, been able to complete several works of public improvement and to build up largo manufacto ries, and tho influence of the many interests cantered there ia sufficient to give thom many votes in the legisla ture of this State to extend any enterprise they mty eon ttmplate. There are no doubt many other placet in this country where tho same cause has produced tha same results, hut these two will suffice to show the influence of a union of interests. The legislature of Massachusetts has aroendad the energy and enterprise of tho citizens of that common wealth, in granting charters with liberal conditions and privileges, incorporating railroads. Ice. At tha last ?e? sion the following acta were paeaod, incorporating new railroad companies, and improving old:? An act to incorporate the Greenfield and Northampton Railroad Company. An act to incorporate the Medford Branch Railroad Company. An not to establish the Winterdon Railroad Cerpo rat en. An not to Increase the capital itock of the western Railroad Company.

In 1841 tho maximum wea-247 009,000 , and the miouanm*l6 460.<>00f; whereas, in 1844, the maximum was 971,000 0001, and the minimum 933 000,000f. The medium circulation in 1843 was ?230,000,0001. and in 1844 it vu 248 .800,0007. Any ad vantage to the Bank, however, from this source ia only apparent, aa the increase in the amount of bullion has lully kept pace with the above -issue of notaa. In 1843 the maximum stack held was 947,000,OOOf, the minimum 192,000 OOOf, [and the average or medium 226 040 SOOf; while in 1844 these amounts stand? maximum 279 000 OOOf, minimum 234,000,000f, medium 266 000 OOOf The rapait incidentally remarks, that this maximum haa only been surpassed twice?namely, in 1839 and 18*8; while tha min imum amount in 1844 has only been exceeded oaoe? namely, In 1888. In 1843 the number of bills discounted was 649,819, and the average amount of eaoh was l,l?4t; the average num ber of days each had to ran before maturity was 61 days, being the time on which tho hank received the discount. In 1844 thesanumbera wero aa (allows :-Number of bills 696.116; average amount, 1,076(.; average maturity, 44 days. The private accounts currant present an increase. Oa comparing 1844 with the year 184* the maximum amount of these account! had increased from 66 000,OOOf to 60 - 000,(OOf, and the minimum from 34,080 OOOf to *7,600 OOOf. The Treasury accounts, on the contrary, bad dimii hh?d, the maxiasum falling from 160,060.080ffen 1848 to 14u 000, oooI in 1844, and the minimum fiom 94 ooo.ooof to 86 060, OOOf. The report says? " Although the past year shows an increase in the amount of business when compared with the preceding one, yet the profits of the institution have cgain suffered a diminution, and tha dividends have in consequence been decreased. Tha dividends in 1849 amounted to IMf per share; in 1843, they were 129r per share; and in 1844. they have only been 107f per share. In explanation of this decrease in the profits, the report points ont that the increase in the total operations ia wholly lormed by the increase of 78 000.0001 in the business of the branch banks, which are the leaat profi'able part; while arainst this there must be placed tha lallfog off of about 30 0C0, 0061 in tha total operations of the Pari* establishment; this la principally made np by the balance between the decrease of 99,182 9l7f in the amount of disaounta, of a decrease of 18 679,10Of in the amount of advances on stacks, and on increase of 11,091 400f in tha advaneeson bullion. Another cause of diminished profit which is pointed out in the report is, the singular toot of the de crease in the average number of day a which the discount ad billa have to ran before maturity, and tbair Increased number ?n compared to the total amount, thaa producing leas profit to the Bank from the same, or even a greater, amount discounted in the course of the year. stiff Stock Kxchange, 81000 N V city 7'e '37 113 100 shs Morris Canal MOM v Y State 0's '60 10914 130 do $1000 Ohio 6's '60 91% 200 do 6508 do 99 73 do Slfl $7000 Penn 3's 7>* 73 Erie Hit 31 $10000 do r30 73S 30 do 130 31 ('.tlOO do S30 73H 130 do 30 6*040, do . 75* 23 Mohawk RR M* $3(M0 Kentucky 6'a 101 200 Harlem HR 666 70 13'Ofl Indiana bds 1410 33*4 30 d? 69* 630*0 do hso 35* 300 L lila.d RR 76)2 (130(0 do b?0 36 30 do >30 76 83" 00 do sOO 35* 175 Btonington RR 40 (3000 do S5lh 23 do bl0 40* l.'iflSO Illinois 8pl Bd? 40 too do so 10 ah.
