disciplined force and regulation, established in every part ot the kingdom to prevent smuggling, u system of traffic which was carried on to an enor mous extent under the corrupt administration of Ks pirtero, and eup|iorted by the agents ol Great J'ritai, whose merchants received immense pro tits to themselves, while at the same time a large per cntage from this trade fell into the vaults of the home treasury. As it curiosity, I give you here the amount of contraband goods, from the garrison of Gibraltar alone, which found their wny into Spain during the last year of Espartero's gov ernment, and which has been kindly furnished me bv un intelligent merchant (now officer) of this place. English goods, cloths, cottons, &c., $2,000, 000; tobacco, $600,000, making a total of $2,600,000, in goods, the introduction of which is prohibited in Spain by the laws of that country. This was but a part of the illicit trade carried on through ihe.coun tenance and support of the English government, whose vessels of war, daily left their station at the garrison, to accompany and protect some wealthy smuggler in its violation of laws, which bv aolemn treaty they had pledged themselves to faithfully observe! In consequence of the new regulations, Gibraltar haa lost all this interest in her trade with Spain, which creates a lively anxiety on the part of her mercantile population for a return of the old order, in the re-establishment of Espartero to power. This, however, is not the only check which England baa received from th.s quarter ; she is now made sensible ot the loss of her influence in directing the foreign and internal affairs of Spain, and ot her place being occupied by Louis Phillippe and his wily cabinet The recent visit of the Duke and Duchess D'Nemour to the "Infant Queen," was less a visit of pleasure and compliment than of business It is here whispered, by those in confidence with the ad ministration at Madrid, that the Duke assured her Majesty of the intention of his august father to atd in preventing a return of Espartero, or a change of the present government j ana, in return, a most im plicit attention to French interest in that quarter, was promised by the Spanish ministry. The present administration, as you will see from this, is govern ing with energy, and thua far with success. They promise much for Spain, which they would be likely to accomplish, if there were either stability or ho nesty of character in her people. I had the pleasure a few days since, of meeting with a select company of American gentlemen oil their way to Grenada, ? place of resort to most of foreigners visiting Malaga, but particularly to Americans, whose attention has been more im mediately attracted to this spot by the vivid picture which Irving has given ot it, in nis history of the celebrated Alhambra. One of the gentlemen, late an officer on board of the ill-lated steamer Mis souri, while B|ieaking upon that subject, informed ine that the wreck of that noble vessel is not yet removed from the bay where it was burnt; and from what he could learn, the fault of all this rested with 'be government at Washington. It will be recol lected, that a contract was entered upon by an Eng lish company of divers, and Cant. Newton, by which it was agreed that the wreclt should be re moved, the copper sold, and one half of the whole proceeds should fall to the company as its part of the profits, and this removal waa to be eflected in one year from the date of the contract. It is now almost two years since the oompany have been con stantly engaged upon the wreck, but from unforseen circumstances at the time ot malting the < ontract, they have been able thus far to do but little, while their outlays have been very heavy Their first effort was to raise the vessel bodily, by pumping out the water; and to effect this, the governor ot Gibral tar gave to the contractor 800 men ; and at the mo ment when they believed themselves successful, it was discovered that the bottom had been broken, which let in the water ut a more rapid rate than they could force it out with their pumps. They then went to work to get out the boilers, and employed divers for the purpose ; but here again was another difficulty, the heat from the fire had rendered the screws immoveable, by covering them with fused metals, and the only alternative was to sever them with force, and this too at a distance of twenty feet under water. They have at length succeded in get ting up the secop.d boiler, there being in all four? but front the fa.,lure of their funds are unable to go on farther, a,id have appealed to the American Con sul ut Gibraltar, Mr. Sprague, for means to com plete the, work; but with all this gentleman's de fire t.,i have the wreck removed, ne does not feel him.self authorized to make any advances, without first receiving the sanction of the government. It is said, that he has laid the whole subject before the Secretary of the Navy, but strange tp say, that to his many letters, he has not received in return a liue upon the subject. The admirality are constant ly complaining of the delays in clearing the bay of the wreck, and appeal to our Consul to know the cause of it. Instead of answering that, the gov ernment at Washington have not noticed hi6 letters in relation to the matter; he spares it the disgrace of its inattention, by taking the fault in part upon him self. I have devoted much space to this subject, which I should not have done, if it had not been f rom the importcnce which it has assumed in this quarter of the worid. Lowux, Oct. 18th, 1845. JFtaftering Prorperts of the Nativet?Their Victory it the next Election sure?Whig Meeting?Reli gion and Repudiation?Weather, 8pc. Thf natives ot Lowell had a meeting at City Hall last night, which, as far as regards numbers, was very resp ct ible. The Chairman of the meeting in troduced to the audience a man from Charlestown, who was very ambitious to impress upon his hear ers the facts that there was no>hopet> for the republic, but by the wbigsund democrats deserting their own party and uniting with the natives, in driving the foreigners from our shores. The speaker was quite eloquent in his remarks upon the success of the par ty in the State so far, and had no doubt that they would be able at the next election in November to carry their candidates for Governor and Lieut Go vernor by a large majority. . .George Tyler, the editor of the native organ in Boston, next took the stand He was for the twen ty-one years system, and " nothing elsehis views were that it was unconstitutional for foreigners to hold offices, or vote as they now did, and concluded by giving Col Schoulor, of the Courier, his views of his course as one of the leaders of the whig party here, and insisted that the Colonel was not a natur alised citizen. The Hon. George Ford, of Penn , followed. He succeeded in getting off some stale election jokes, which ap|ieared amazingly to please the numerous bo\ s. Upon the whole, native Americanism is con sidered a dead failure here. There was very little enthusiasm, and probably not fifty out of the several hundred present will vote for the party. The wnigs of Lowell will hold a caucus (his even ing, at the same place. It is understood that several distinguished whigs will be present to undress the meeting. The whigs muster strong as a party here, so we shull be present to see how things work, and probably give an account of the proceedings. The Herald has a very large circulation in this .town, and is more extensively read than any other imirnal^ out of the city?the Weekly particularly, which is taken by some three hundred of the fami lies and operatives; indeed, they say that it is the only New York paper that can be relied upon in re gard to financial and other important news. There has been much excitement for some time in regard to the swindling operations of certain in dividuals connected with the new Freewill Baptists Church. You may recollect that it was built under i he auspices of a certain Elder, who borrowed sums ofmoney from the operatives and others, from $100 to a $1000, and gave what was called the Corpora tion notes. Well, this Corporation Association one day became a bursted-up community, which, conse quently, ruined many ot the poor factory giris, who had invested their moneys on the assurance of the interested party that it was safer with them than in i lie banks. Finally, one of the victims had recourse to law, which has once, for a wonder, decided in favor of the wronged. But it is supposed they will not recover more than twenty-five per cent on the dollar, which is certainly better than nothing. Some <>! the most eminent lawyers in the State'were en gaged by the parties?among them, B. F. Butler, Esq., for plaintiff'; John Robinson, Esq., for elders and church. The weather lias been very pleasant and mild for the season?to-day resembles more a day in June than one in the middle of October. Canada.?Livingston Ac Co. have advices from Montreal of the 17th inst. t he great loot iace? announced to take place here on the 22d instant, are looked forward to with considerable interest from the large amount of the prizes?the moat renewed athletm on the American Continent are ex pected to contend The prizes are ftl-iO, $200 and $400. Col. Ksteven, who has been occupied for the last three years in drawing the frontier line, hotween this province and the United States, aa stipulated by the Ashbitrtou treaty, has completed his tank down to the St. Regis, and taken his departure for Washington. Our Parliament is farther prorogued to the 10th of No vember. Tlris autumn baa been the wetteatever known in thia neighborhood, and all hopes of the potato crop are near ly given up. We have now cold chilly weather. Yes tetany morning we had ire an inch in thickness. The restoration of tho burnt district in Quebec is pro ceeding with great spirit and much improvement on the ?t)ie of the former buildings. It is understood that his Kxcellency, the Governor Genet al, is seriously indisposed. He has not attended at t ie government house since Kriday last. It is stated lids morning that he is somewhat better. ih'CaKAT Si'kKP?1Troy and Grskniuthii Railroad.

The building wet completely burnt out, and had it uot been for the arduous exertions of the firemen, the Tri bune Buildings, and the whole block, would have gone. The lower part of the building wni occupied by Thomas Bell, aa an auction room; above this was N- abitt k Law la'a book bindery laliovo this, Ilewett's engraving rooms; and above this, Newell'* stereotype foundry.

The t up per stories of same building were occupied by Piercy It Keed, as a printing office?here similar damage by wa ter. together with a quantity oi sheets ready for binding. The fire commenced in the basement, occupied by Benj. henneras n wiua und spirit vault. The flames burst up the hatchways the whole height of the building. The main store, occupied by Thoa. Bell as an auctiou store, was soon destroyed. The second story, occupied by Nesbitt It Lewis, book-binders, and by the publishers of the Rtientijic .Imeriean, next followed. The third story, occupied by H. W. Hewet, containing all the stereotype 8 lute* and all the wood engravings for the "Illustrated liekspeare," were entirely destroyed. Mr. Nat Orr, who had charge of the establishment, endeavored to suve a few of the bioks, (Mr. H. being out of town) but was af terwards obliged to leap out of the third story window in the rear,to save his life,and barelyescaped with a few cuts and bruises. The fourth and flltb stories were occupied by Messrs. Newell St Co. as a stereotype foundry and printing office. These two lofts were stored with stereo type plates and printed work for different publishers? K. Martin k Co., Messrs Harpers, Protestant Episcopal De pository, W. H. Graham, Paine, and Burgess, and others. J lie plates and copy of Dolby's " History of Ireland," Vorplanck's Notes to the " Illustrated Bhakspeare," and a " French Prayer Book,"just completed and waiting for delivery, were all destroyed. In fact, not a single arti cle was saved except front Mr. Bell's stere One of Messrs. Nowell's pressman, Patrick Regan, is among the missing, and there were several miraculous escapes. Fin vs.?Aboot 4 o'clock on Sunday morning, the ship chandlery store of Messrs. Coles kThornes, No. 91 West street, whs discovered to be on fire. The third loft of the house was occupied by Mr. H. Huxley as a sail maker's shop. The stock in the store was much dam aged, hut the sufferers were insured for a sum sufficient to cover the whole amount of loss. About 10 o'clock on the same morning, the gold and silver refinery of Mr. Barnet, No. 184 Laureus street, was discoveied to be on fire, and considerable injury was done before it was subdued. Mr. Barnet was iully in sured. The fire as usual is thought to be the work of an incendiary.

Target Fisino.?The Clinton Guards passed our flree " ' ofitfe yesterday, with a target full of bullet holes. Military Parade?The Campaign Commenced?New Farce or the "Rival Captains."?One of the most unique, laughable and intensely exciting scenes came oft'yesterday at the corner of Church and Murray streets, that ever has been recorded in military annals. The 85th regiment of militia, consisting of about a dozen dif ferent companies met there, ranging from the corner of Murray street to Park Place. First and loremost on the corner of Murray street, was the company of Captain Bushel, tka immortal Capt. Bushel, who by his determin ed fidelity to the cause of the people, has rendered him self deservedly popular with them. Capt. Bushel's com pany consisted of twenty-one persons, and was the lurgest and best looking body of men on the ground. Among the twenty-one there were fifteen muskets, the six remaining privates carrying laths and poles. Next to Capt. Bushel's company was one on the corner of Park Tlace, consisting of lour individuals beside the captain, who was a dapper little lellow, swelled to almost twice his natural itize by the glory which filled him and shone through his eyes, hat and finger ends. One member of his company made himself decidedly conspicuous. He was a tall gaunt man, who looked as though he feared nothing, but loved sport. He carried in his hand an old Queens arms, on his head he wore a Leghorn hat of a re markable altitudes, with a brim about a quarter of an inch wide and bound with red flannel. On the crown was marked in large letters, "M. P. 85th Regiment," and on his cartouch box was chalked "Rum." The captain commenced calling the roll, on which were inscribed the names of about a hundred individuals, who were represented by the four who stood before him. Tho name of the unfortunate John Smithy who ia always ^et tiiig into sdl the scrapes that come off, was called no less than four times. The spectators seemed to enjoy this highly, and at each call cries of " He's gone to Texas," I " He's drowned," " Stept out." kc., v/ere the answers re- j ceived. Leaving this company,we passed up Park Place, I w here we found another, consisting of eight individuals. I We took an inventory of the urms contained in this com pauy, and the result was as follows -.?One musket, two laths, three canes, one broomstick, and bringing up the roar, a tall, good-looking fellow, bearing aloft, erected on a high pole, a huge fish-net. The captain ordered this company to march, and off they started, single Me ttle musket going first, the canes afterwards, and laths next, then the broomstick, and biinging up the rear the i fish-net. The gentleman who bore this seemed fully to i appreciate his dignity as banner-bearer of the company, and marched with great skill and accuracy. His duty seemed to he when any of the company went out of the ranks, to throw his net over their heads, and haul them i in again. Leaving thia company, we again returned te j the corner of Church street and Park place, where Capt. Bushel's company, which was the cynosure of all eyos, was drawn up in bold array. In yesterday's Herald, we gave a report of the meet ing at which Capt. Bushel was elected, and mentioned the determination of the field ; officers to use their best endeavours to prevent him from | commanding his company. It was, therefore, anticipat ed that n collision would lake place, and the company, with the exception of one or two, expressed a determi nation to support Capt. Bushel through thick and thin. Capt. Bushe.'s company was drawn un the gallant cap tain was pacing up and down before them, viewing them ; with pride, when Lieut. J. M. Tyson, whom the field offi- ; cers, in opposition to the votes of the people, had dele- j gated to take charge of Capt. Bushel's company, made his appearance, dressed in full regimentals. Hearts beat quicker, and evea flashed livelier, as the two rival cap tains stood before the company. Never, probably, in { the annals of military drills, from the days of Hannibal to Col. Pluck, was there such an exciting and critical moment " Under which, King Benzonian, speak or die." j Now commenced the tug. The two captains stood i side by side. Captain Bushel.?"Order?arms." The fifteen muskets and six laths struck the ground in | an instant. Lieutenant Ttion.?Shoulder?arms. Muskets and latha remained fixed. (.'apt. Bushel?Eyes right! The whole company threw their eyes into a military strabimus. Lieut. Tyson?Eyes left! Not a lid moved. Now commenced a scene of confu sion. " Throe cheers for Capt. Bushel," cried one ? I These were given right heartily. Then with orders j from tho rival captains ot" carry arms,"" re verso,"" or- \ dcr," and fioni the people of " Go it Bushel," " Stick to j him old fellow," and other popular phrases?such a jar gon was createAns would have done honor to Babel. ? When this cooled down, Lieut. Tyson took out his book i and commenced calling the roll. Not a man answered, and b< loio hr was halt through Capt. Bushel commenced with his. He only having the names of those present, | every cue was promptly answered. Before Lieut Tyson I finished his roll, Capt. Bushel, paying no attention what- > ever to him, marched of his company. Finding that he was not to be cowei', they suffered Capt. Bushel to pro ceed unmolested, and his company drilled bettor than any other on the ground. Thus ended a farce in a farce, for the militia system is certainlythe grcatestfarce ever played lor the amusement of the lovers ol fun. Whoever had any doubt of the utter j worse than inutility of militia drills would veiy much have changed bis idea by witnessing the scenes of yes terday. Every body there was there for fun?the militia to make it and the spectators to witness it. ltisahui lesque on decency und common sense, and we trust the time is not far distant when the people will entirely abandon it Police Intelligence, Oct.

Common Council.?The member! ot thlt Board met in full session laat evening, and after transacting some very ordinary business, resolved themselves into a se cret conclave for the purpose, as was supposed, oi com pleting their measures in relation to the building of a City Hall. Nothing was done on the subject of the long proposed police plans of the Mayor, and it is greatly to 1>e apprehended that the citizens of Brooklyn will have each 10 arm himself during the ensuing winter against the many burglars, thieves, and highwaymen, who may now be reasonably expected to pey their devoirs to tbiis badly mansged end devoted city. But lor the press of foreign news in this day's paper, much more would be said on this really all-engrossing topic. Bbooslvn Volunteers-Fashionable Futais.-A finer or more orderly body of men than those composing this company, we have seldom, if ever, seen. On our way to New York, last evening, we met them returning from their target excursion, and it was a truly well and skilfully pierced board, which they brought with them to the city, in which tbey are said to render eminently conspicuous services as firemen, (t would be much better for the members of some other fire companies we wot of, if they would emulate the conduct of these in dividuals, instead of indulging, (as many of them do) in disgraceful midnight debauch tries, and the most uuuar donable offences against many residents of Brooklyn, who, morally and intellectually, are infinitely their su periors. The majority of those who thus render them selves infamously conspicuous, are clerks connected with stores iu New York, whose employers know not thgt thoy " are out." They parade tlia streets in myste riously obtained fashionable attire; attempt, by many disgusting peculiarities, to attract the attention of fe males to their self-supposed superiority; and too fre quently, it is feared, are guilty ol acts of a still more culpable and inexcusable character. Partially Kxri.siNSD.- ln reference to the paragraph published in yesterday's Herald, concerning the remark ably sudden disappearance, in August last, of Mrs. Lemi ra Harris, of Coeymans, Vermont, whose brother came to Brooklyn a day or two ago ill search of the imagined discovery of her dead body at Coney Island, it is now stated that the missing lady is supposed to have abscond ed from her husband and her home with a male compa nion. For Sing Sino.?Tha Deputy Sheriff, D. Van Voorhis, | Esq., conveyed a batch of four of the convicts at the re- ' cent Sessions, to Sing Sing, early yesterday morning, well hand-cuffed and chained. The remainder will go during the week. More Affiliation Cases. -In addition to the bastardy case mentioned in yesterday's Herald, two more com plaints of a similar character nave been made to the Su jierintendants of the Poor?one of them seriously involv ing the moral reputation of a highly respectablo medical i man. AaANDONMr.xT.? A man named James Ackerman was last evening arrested by ufHcer Coombs, on a charge of deserting his wife and latnily, anil refusing to make any provision for them. Complaints have before been made against him for like misconduct, aud he has been permit ted to escape the legal consequences of his offending on solemnly promising to sin no more. It appears, however, that he is incorrigible, and lie will now be made to , "suffer some." Accidents.?Yesterday morning, Mr. J. Schenck Suy dam, ot No. 33 Fulten, and No. 14 Hicks streets, Brook- ' lyn, wns found in a most deplorablo state in the neighbor hood of Bedford, having fallen off, or been knocked from his horse. He was quite iusensible when discovered, and had evidently been laying several hours in such a state. Three surgeons were in attendance upon him laat evening, and it waa not expected that he could long sur- , vive. A young man named James Havy, in the employ of Mr. Harvey, grocer, corner of Myrtle Avenue and Pearl street, was thrown ofl? and severely kicked ou tha head, by a horse on Sunday afternoon. He was trying a pair of spun lor the first time, and they led to the accident. Al though his life was originally despaired of, he is likely to get well. A Magnificent Ball Room.?Among other Brooklyn advertisements in this day's paper, will be found one re ferring to Mr. Van Pelt's new Ball Room, which will, : when completed, be one of the grandest and most exten sive establishments of the kind in the United States. It i? expected that D. J. Lucas, Esq., the celebrated teacher of dancing, will, during the winter, occasionally make this place his headquarters. Fair of the American Inatltute nt NIblo's Garden. The attendance yesterday was much smaller than we have yet seen it, though the closing of Niblo's Theatre, perhaps had the effect of inducing many to believe that the Fair was closed also. Such, however, we would now inform them is not the case, as it is to be kept open till the latter part ol this week. The extremely crowded state of our columns, prevents our giving much space to the Fair to-day, and we can only notice first,? A specimen of Kentucky grown Hemp, exhibited by D. L Sayre, Front street. This sample is very beauti ful, and shows that hemp can he, and is grown as good in this in any other. It is remarkable for its length of fibre', and beauty of color. Organ in the Oallery?This little instrument, for lit tle it is, in comparison with the mammoth organs that have been lately built, has, nevertheless, one of the finest tones that we have heard for sometime past. It has a barrel also fitted to it, and with it it performs several tunes. It is built by Jardino, for the I. O. of O. F. Lodgo No. ti8. An Astral Chronometer and General Surveyor, by 1 Win.

As they hove Mr. Edge among them, a grand display may be looked for. Meeting for the Urging the Abolition of Capi tol Punishment. Tha friends of the measure met last night, at the Ly ceum, and quite a number were gatnered together?a goodly proportion of them were ladies, and a good deal of enthusiasm was manifested on the occasion. The business of the meeting was opened by Vice Chancellor ; T. NlcCoun, who stated the object or their assemblage, i and said that some of the gentlemen present would offer seme remarks, and also resolutions, which he hoped would bring the matter to a more definite point with the Legislatures of the different States. A committee of three was then appointed to select de legates to attend the National Convention, which was to be held in Philadelphia on the 12th proximo. Mr. Roue kick N. Vorhison then addressed the meet ing, and detailed the action of the last Legislature (of which ho was a member) on the subject now under con sideration. He stated that a number of petitions for the Abolition of Capital Punishment had been presented, chiefly from the western part of the State. A bill had been prepared and referred to a select committee of five, of which he was a member, and that with but one dissent ing voice, they had recommended the adoption of th e ; Bill. He then read the report of the committee on this subject, which was highly favorable^to it, and went over much the same arguments that this party always adduce ?it bore pretty hard on the old Mosaic law, and con- { tended that that law had been repealed by the mild aDd cbristian-like tenets inculcated by our Saviour. It also : adduced Franklin and Livingston's opinions on the impro- ? priety of capital punishment, and concluded by recom mending tho putting some restraint on the pardoning power of the Governor in case it should became a law. ' Mr. M. stated that the report was heard by the House with much interest and general favor, but as it was near , the close of tho session, and there was no prospect of its passing both Houses'at that late hour, the bill was not passed. But, he csntinued, a general feeling had been awakened, and all that was necessary was to keep the subject before the people; and spoke at soine length on the necessity of agitating the measure, and believed if it was pursued with earnestness, that it would succeed. Mr. then (offered the following resolutions, (which we have condensed)?That it is the firm and set tled conviction of the meeting that the punishment of death is inconsistent with the benevolent spirit of the age, and that it is the duty of every one to use his endea vors to put an end to it That the time has arrived which demands vigorous sflbrts of the friends of the movement, and that most efficient measures should be forthwith taken to bring the subject before the people of this State by means of lectures, discussions, circulation of documents, Stc , Sic. Also, by means of petitions to legislatures to take immediate measures as early as pos sible. That the circulation of facts being essential, that we recommend the publication, in oheap form, for gene ral distribution, of the able roportof John O'Sulfivan, F.sq., and other works advocating the same measures. That as funds are necesaary for carrying out this object, the friends of the cause are urgently requested to come forward to the F.xecutive Committee and give such sums as they maywish to appropriate to thia purpose, for which they shall have forwaided to them an equivalent in these documents, at cost price, and that theso resolutions, ac- 1 companied by a circular from Ithe F.xecutive Committee, be printed and forwarded to all the known active friends of this reform in the State, and that editors be requested to publish the same. These resolutions were seconded in a somewhat lengthy speech by Rev. Mr. Thayer, who was succeeded by Mr Balch.who proposed taking up a collection,which was done. A report was then received from the committee of three, who had named the following delegates to Phila delphia for tho National Convention on 1 Jth proximo. W. T. MoCoun, Horace Ciraeley, It F.llis, J. Harson, O. Johnson, Rev. W. Balch, J. O McAdam, J. T. Hopper, Rov. 8. J May, W. A. t'ouaut. 3 Howard, Rav. 8. B. Thayer, Freeman Hunt, W. B. Burbank, K. C. Havemey er, J. B. Scott, R. N. Morrison, i Horace Orkt.i.kv, then addressed the meeting and said, that the world was apparently made for the strong and cunning more than for the feeble ; the poor, sinful and suffering, are by our laws, habits and ideas held to he fair game lor legislation and punishment. The world has apent more than two thirds that could be racked from misery in massacring mankind by warfare, famine, Ac., and so they have gone on. Till Waterloo, earnage was the chief employment ot the minds of the human race. A poor wretch! mankind say he is good for nothing else, hang him. If this were the end of it, we migt^ say they were well out of their misery, lot them go ! but experi ence shows that the diseases of crime become epidemic, and they rage. He went on to speak of the various in stances of people returning from witnessing executions and judicial vengeance to their homes, to have a little private vengeance on their own account. He thought the i?solutions were good, but that it would be better to usk tho legislature to submit it to the people as early as | a calm judgment could bo obtained on it. He also urged tho circulation of documents. Mr. McAdam and several others followed Mr. (Ireeley, when the meeting adjourn ed. Court Calendar?'Thia Day. Superior Cei'RT.?

The usual weekly clinique, that is held m this In stitution tnroughou' the year, took place yesterday, and the lecture room was well attended by a large number ol medical students, most of whom have come on to this city trom vauous parts ot the Union, for the purpose of attending the courses of lectures that are about to be delivered by the various Pro fessors ot this college during the approaching wm The establishment of a clinique, which we believe Professor Parker is entitled to the credit of. has been a most excellent thing tor the College, and also die many patients that have been prescribed tor ad attended gratuitously by the students. It is heiu every Monday between the hours ol ten and twelve, and it is a curious sight to witness the stresm of halt, maim, blind, See , patients that pour down Crosby street. They are admitted into the class room in regular rotation, and each case is examined into by the Professor, who explains it to the assem bled class, prescribes tor thein and puts them under charge of some of the more advanced students, whose duty it is to visit them at their homes and see that the course recommended by the Professor is carried out, or varying it, as circumstances may re quire. Under this plan it will be perceived that a vast number of patients are prescribed for in the course of the year, and what makes it more useful is, that nil this attendance is girsn gratuitously, the students resting satisfied with the amount ot know ledge that they receive from having the opportunity thus afforded them of studying diseases practically, and as his whole course of treatment is under the immediate advice of the Professors, who are all of tliein eminent men, the patient runs no risk of what they generally fear so much, viz. being experiment ed on. Yesterday there were some very interesting cases brought forward and commented on by Pro fessor Parker?they comprised several classes ot diseases, such as epilepsy, fistula, cutaneous com plaints, &c. &c Two or three minor operations were ijerlormed, such as the one for strabismus, removing a small encysted tumor from the lips ot a lad. On all of these the Professor gave a great deal of information to the clu?s. We passed through the museum of the college, and found it had baen much beautified and enlarged during the summer recess, and to all who are at a.l curious in examining into the relics of poor Butter ing humanity, this collection affords sufheent scope for several days' observation. Drs. RodgersandBeck have contributed to it most liberally filled by giving it the whole of their valuable collections and it is alto gether one of the best, medical museums in the country. The regular winter course of lectures commences in the first week of November, and we i>erceived that the matriculation book showed a goodly number of names ot young aspirants tor medical honors.

Oct. 20.?Patrick Murphy et al. tit. Jacob //antsy and James C. Bell, Admrs.?This case came before the Court on pleading, for the purpose of obtaining the construction of the will of a C.pUin P. MurphyUeydecoased wbich bequeathed to the heirs of the testator a ??">?? $.>0,000, which was left in tho hands of Harvey and Bell, as administrators. The deceased, Capt. Murphy, proysoua to his demise bequeathed his property to three brothen and a sister who resided in Ireland. Two of the brothers died, leaving children, and the question at issue before the Court was that in relationi to> the parties who were entitled, uader the will, to take the estate. TheCoiirt held that, under the affidavits and testimony before it, it considered the children of the deceased brother and al to of the sister, were entitled to participate in the funds of the estate equally, taking in their own right per, the party who put in a false and fictitious claim having been sentenced to the State Prison for perjury. It is therefore, decreed, that, afterpayment of costs thefunds in the hands of the administrator be paid over to the chil dren and grand children of the brother and sister of tho deceensed, and also to the children of the Daniel A.

Our commercial adrioes from Europe by the Hiberaia at Boeton f om Liverpool, although seven day a later than thoae reeeived by the Greet Britain, give nothing more decided in relation to the harreata, and leavea the matter still la doubt. The crop# had not all been gather ed, and until the harreata hare been completed it will be impossible to anire at any correct conclusion as to the yield, he. It is estimated that the deficiency In weight of grain this year compared with last, will be equal to 1,400,000 quarters, and the deficiency la mea sure above 1,608,000?making a total deficiency of abore 3,000,000 quarters, or about 34,000,000 bushels. The stock of old whaat in the country waa estimated at i 1,000,000 quarters, which will laare a deflciancy of 3,000,000 quartern, or 10,000,000 bushels to be made good by foreign supplies. The condition of the harreata and the probable product, are compared with the same pe riod in 1030, but the consumption of broad stuffs in Greet Britain now is much largar than it was in 1988 and 1880, and the sources of supply are more limited than in pre vious years of short harvests. The estimated deficiency this year, will require an expenditure of bullion amount ing to four or five millions pounds starling at least. The advices in relation to the cotton markets are of an unfavorable nature, not only on account of the raoent decline in price* and in demand, but on account of tho probability that as the season advances, and the supply of corn diminishes, quotations for cotton will experience a further decline, and the consumption of the staple de. crease. A decline of a penny per pound on cotton would | make a difference to this country in the total crop of more than twenty millions of dollars, an amount more than three times greater than the total value of all tho Hour and wheat wo can export to Oreat Britain and all other countries, in previous years of short harvest* in Oreat Britain, prices for our cotton have boon reduced ' without giving u* an opportunity to make good tho losses thus experienced by large shipments of bread" stuff**. The grain growing countries of the continent being more favorably situated for supplying the want* of Great Britain, than this country, hava heretofore had that trade nearly exclusively to themselves. A general deficiency in the potato crop of Europe, and a very great decrease in the production of wheat in certain district*, have opened the market* of England, for the entry of breadstuff's direct from the State*. We shall, therefore, be able to offset, to a moderate extent, by large ship ments of flour the decline in the prices for cotton, so that the country at large will not be so much affected by the ? educed value of our great staple as in former years. The agriculturists of tbe north and west will be benefit, ed by the change, while the planters of the south must bear the brunt of the depression that the cotton markets must for sometime experience. There is no doubt but that with all the relief an extanaive exportation of flour from this country and successful speculations in brand* stuffs will give, we shall be losers by the defioient bar vests of England. The railway speculation continues to rapidlyincreaae in extent,and there appears to be no limit to the movement. There appears also to be a vary great difference of opi nion among capitalists, as to the ultimate effeot of this speculation. It is supposed that there will be no aeriouo derangement of the money market by the transfer of tho railway deposit* into the hand* o( the accountant gene, ral. The resolution requiring a deposit of ten per cent on the estimated capital did not peas the lower houae o Parliament, and tie law remains the asm* as at last sei aion. It will, therefore, only be neceasary to lodge Ave per cent of the capital until the bill* ore ready to pass to the upper house. This reduces the amount of dapo sit* one half, to go into the hand* of the accountant ge neral. The railway speculation differs from ail others, in its being confined within the limit* of each country in which the railway s are to be built.

There is not that danger of a sudden contraction in tha value of the investment in railway speculations that ex ists in every other; there is something solid, something tangible, something to show for the money expended, which is not always the case in the speculations that frequently make their appearance.
