We are somewhat surprised ut the result of the Congressional election which recently took place in Virginia. We were prepared to see a majority ot Congressional representatives of the democratic party elected, because the Old Diminion has, from time immemorial, always given a majority representing the sentiments of that particular body of the people. The wings have been in a minority?a large minority?in Virginia, for many years past; but while we xpected such n result as wc have mentioned, we were not prepared to sec such a sweeping dissolution of the whig party as has almost taken place there, in the recent Congressional election. IIow old Ritchie will crow! According to the most reliable accounts, of the latest dates, <yn!y two whigt, perhaps one, have been left staruUng m t at uvcient commonwealth. IIow was this result brought about? What is the meaning of such a sudden and singular change? IIow is it, that the party which succeeded in electing our present jropular chief magistrate, have failed so signally in their first attempt, after the incoming of his administration, in acquiring the confidence of the people, and increasing the strength of their representation in Congress 1 How Ritchie will clap his wings and crow! These questions are not only important to the administration, but they have a hearing even beyond the destiny of General Taylor's presidency, and present a very menacing aspect, as to the future position of the Union, in relation to the great questions which have been agitated by some of the leading ultras, in different sections of the country, for some years past. We are persuaded that the unexpected defeat of thefcwhigs in Virginia, has been precipitated as JJHH'II UJ IIIC lllllil illlll-PIUIt l J 1ICC-9V1I llliiiciuciiig and indications of the whigs of the north, as by any other local or general cause whatever. In the Southern States, many exceptions were taken to the composition of General Taylor's cabinet ; principally to the selection of two or three individuals in it, who ware supposed to be ultra in their anti-slavery and free-soil notions. We allude to Mr. Ewing and Mr. Collamer, more especially. In the southern journals, we have seen objections made to this i>ortion of the cabinet, and these objections weigh very much with the popular mind in Virginia and other Southern States. But, in addition to these reasons, operating on the public mind in Virginia, as developed by the result of the recent election in that Slate, we have seen the violent and ultra movements contemplated by Senator Seward's particular clique in this State, in connection with the free soil movement of Martin Van Buren.?Thurlow Weed's Evening Journal, joining heurt and hand with Mr. V. n Buren's Evening Pott, in agitating this question of shivery; in insulting and criminating the southern States, in consequence of their peculiar institution ; and bringing forth, at every opportunity, all those matters which can only end in irritating and separating the northern and southern sections of the country from each other; has operated moft materially in Virginia, and, no doubt, will do so likewise in the other States in which elections ure to take place; and not the least of all, the probable success of the .Seward influence in dictating the appointments in this city and throughout the State, to the cubinet of General Taylor, now sitting in Washington, on this important matter, liow rutcnte win crow : All theBe infuences have tended to stir up the jealousies and drends of the southern .States towards tlioee agitators and free soilerp, of all descriptions, who have been operating in the North for some time past. The result of the recent Congressional election in Connecticut, in the North, combined with that of Virginia, und the proej>ect of the result in othersouthern States in w hich elections are to take place, bodes uo good to the country, no good to the admtniatra tion of General Taylor, no good to the peace of this I Union, for some time to come. Here we are, already on the brink of the dangerous precipice which the sainted Washington advised his countrymen to avoid, above all other dangers whatever?viz., the organization of parties on a sectional basis, growing out of sectional interests and sectional feelings. By the operations of Mr. Van Buren, during the last year or two, in organizing and strengthening the free-soil democracy in the Northern and free States, we see that the whole democracy of the North are gradually unitipg their forces on this ultra ground, in combination with the ultras of all other kinds, belonging either to the whig party, to the socialists, or to a iv other description of factions in the North. In the Southern States, John C. Calhoun, who has been endeavoring for many years to organize a Southern party, on similar sectional grourfBs, has at last acquired strength and force from the condition of things in the North; and there is every probability tbat the Southern democracy will be increased and enlarged and popularized, to a very great extent, in the coining elections, in consequence of the attitude assumed by the Northern democrac y ; so that w e may sec the old democracy of the North and that of the South taking positions hostile to each other on that very critical question, slavery and anti-slavery. Where, in this conflict?in this singular movement?will the w lug party be 1 What w ill become of the force of the udministraiio* party in Congress 1 How can the cabinet of General Taylor get along, surrounded, as it will be. by ultras, numbering a force far greater than what they can count upon, in either house of Congress 1 There is every appearance, Iront the indications held out by the result of the recent election in Virginia, that other elections in the Southern States will terminate in the same way?by giving a large majority for the democrats, or that party ill the South which stands by southern rights and southcm institutions, even to the extent of separating from the I nion. How old Kitcliic will crow ! This is a dangerous condition of things, which I now menaces the country, both North and youth? the organization of the old democratic party, at b"th these sections, on nitra sections 1 grottn '!a of slavery und anti-slavary?one created I y the disajtpointnient of Mr. Van Buren, and the wickedness, intrigue, ,.n(i tolly of Senator Seward, mid other persons of a similar character; and the other, in the Sou tin- n Slates, by ih.. previous disappointments of John < Calhoun, and defeat of Mr, Ca^, in not being elected last y. lir. There is dan"er ahead, truly ; and it < ? uv|?r j01.s n?t , lk7 little more of the reins ??? hie own bands, and give a little less to the cabin.relation m the intrigues of the imti-slavery whige, u,j, gn(l ot|,r|. NoiiJn m states, hh lias been attempted by Sow ud and Weed, recently, there will be a deeper danger to the Union, during the administration of i .,.n Taylor, than there hat been exhibited since t\,,. formation ot this confederacy, or the organization of the present government. IJnw . 1 Jlttcbie will ciap his wings and crow till lie bursts ! Twe Nkmt York Custom House Appointments ?iSTRtQGl.e AMONG T1IK OfMCI-BeOGAES.?Tlie announcement, which was made in Wall street the other day, that the Collector and other appointments for this port had been made, was nothing but a trick of one of the office-begging cliques. No appointment lias yet been made. Thurlow Weed and the tSeward tail have been at Washington, moving heaven and earth, it is said, to defeat John Young, as Collector, and appoint some other one ; and having played their last trump card, they give out that the appointments had been determined on, and that all other efforts would be fruitless. This was a mere rutt of these well-known ojasrators, and characteristic of the Mephistophiles of the whig party. No appointments for Collector and other import- I ant others, here or elsewhere, have been yet made by the administration ; nor will any final decision he agreed upon for some days to come?probably not for a week yet. The number of office-beggars who have filed their petitions at Washington is given oat to be, on good authority, seven thousand five hundred und sixty-nine. But the great struggle, in certain lutitudes, has been for the collectorship of the principal sea ports, and more especially, above all others, that for j this great metropolis, New York. In this strug gle, some very remaiKulile anu curious scenes nave taken place. In the early days of General Taylor's administration, some two months ogo, we were given to understand that tlu worthy old hero gave certain assurances to John Young, ex-Governor of this State, that he should be appointed to the collectorship of New York, if possible. John Young had been Governor of this great State, had come 1 out early in support of Gen. Taylor, and had sustained the Mexican war. In consequence of this I course, Mr. Young encountered the deadly hostility of Seward and Muster Mephistophiles Weed. As soon as it was noised abroad that John Young was favorably entt rtuined by the President, Seward, Weed & Co.?who had previously started with Mr. Bowcn?abandoned him, as too weak in such a contest, and united their forces with certain interests of the whig party in this city, in favor of Mr. ex-Mayor IJrady. Now, the whig clique o<" this city, who have united with the old anti-masonic or Seward clique, is what is called the "opera section of the whig party"?that is, the aristocracy of the whig party, from whom, already, all the appointments hitherto made in this city have been taken. Philip Hone, Win. II. Leroy, J. Prescott Ilall, G. 8. Silliman, (Brooklyn,) and a variety of others, who wish to be appointed, all belong to what is called the "silk stocking opera aristocracy," which rules the whig paity in this city. The rank and file have been, thus far, entirely neglected. Mr. Hone, a very gentlemanly man, has already, it is said, quartered his whole family in his o/Iice; and others will probably pursue a similar policy. All these opera aristocratic interests, as they are called, und ujetown exclusives, are very hostile to John Young, and have united, heart und soul, with the anti-slavery and anti-masonic Seward clique, to defeat Gen Taylor's wishes, by operating upon the cabinet at Washington, in favor of ex-YIuyor Brady, whom they think they can manage to better purpose in the colloctorship of New Y'ork. Thus stand matters in relation to this important appointment in this city. The question is yet to be determined, although Weed and his associates I have played their last trump. They have just I been ut Washington, with a whole bevy of iiic lit w jj ticticu v? mg uicmucig vi vuiigicsa uuiu tins city, endeavoring, through this influence to persuade the cabinet to vote against John Young, who is favored by General Taylor himself, and in fuvor of the anti-slavery clique of Seward, united with the old silk-stocking opera, exclusive clique of this city. We are not sure but this alliance will succeed, and carry their point. The resources of Weed, in the way of manoeuvre, are inexhaustible. Previous to the last general election, he frightened poor Mr.Fillmore, by getting up a meeting at Albany against Gen. Taylor, and thus induced the Vice-President to abandon his opposition to Seward, as the candidate for State Senator. Mephistophiles is attempting the same game in the present case, lie is endeavoring to carry out the same manoeuvre, in order to persuade the cabinet to go against John Young. In connecj tion with the free soil Van Buren men here, he is threatening to bring up all the troublesome antislavery questions in Congress, and upset the administration next session. In consequence of all this, the Collectorship of New York has become invested with great interest. We have much more to say on this point. IIioiij.y Important Slievegamojj News from California and Washington.?In the socialist organ of yesterday, there were presented new specimens of the principles of socialism, in reference to a new species of manufacture, that requires no protection by a high tariff. We allude to the magniloquent telegraphic dispatch, purporting to contain three day's later intelligence from California, which won ietued under the names of our highly respec| table socialist cotemporarien, Messrs. Greeley tfc McElrath; and also the intelligence of the appointments for this city, recently made in Washington. They gave nearly three-quarters of a column of important telegraphic news from California, thereby imposing on the public what was no news at all, but merely a rehash from the columns of the Herald and other journals of old news, which has been before the public for several days. It was as complete a Slievegamon telegraphic despatch as was ever perpetrated. But it is a fit commentary on those new principles of journalism which that eminent newspaper and its editors are determined to spread among the practical people of the United States, and principally among the sensible portion of the whig party. The only reul news of a late date from the Pacific, published yesterday, was given in the Herald, and that came from Acapulco, and only contained some rumors relative to the burning of a California bound vessel in the Pacific. The European News.?The America's news has not yet been received. It is overdue over the wires, and fully due, direct to this port. She once made the passage from Liverpool to Boston in 10^ days. The Washington will be due to-uight, from Southampton. The sailing vessels that have arrived within the last few days, from Euro|>e, have made very short ti?. n^l., -li., Tuesday last, in twenty days, froni Liverpool; the Zurich, In in Havre, in twenty-one duys; the transient vessels, from Gulway, Limerick, Ate., Ate., have rim over the Atlantic in twenty-three and twenty-live days. Uur line packet : hips lollow closely on the heels el the steamers. l'r.fm Kin?.<T'?, Jamaica.?By the brig John Bull, Cnpt. Dele-on, which arrived on Wednesday trom Kingston, Jam., we have received files of the Jamaica J'csjxitrh, and the Morninpf Journal, to the Cth nit. There hud la < n a disgraceful tumult and riot at Old Ilarbor Market, on the 21st of March, caused by the mountain negroes of 8t. Dorothy and 8t. John refusing lo pay their market dues, in which from three to four hiind red negroes were engaged in n skirmish with the magistrates and police, feme blood was spilt, but no lives were lost, before it was quelled ; though it was supposed one of the police, named Cameron, a sergeant, would die in consequence of a wound on the temple. It was probable that the scene would be enacted again on the next market day. The drought in the interior of the Island had caiin-d the crops to .suffer to some extent. Accounts from Antigua represent the cro|?s as likely to be very good. from Dominica there is nothing of interest, exI cepting numerous shocks of earthquakes, which I crest* little alarm, and trom which no damage has I as y st been done Virginia Election. COMORKSS TVio report* of the election of democrats in the doubtful district*, iiru nil confirmed. The following arc the returns from nil the cistricts except two, (the Thirteenth and Fourteenth,) one of which will probably return a whig, the othi r a democrat, us stated below:? Ititt. 1?John S Million, democrat; majority, 130. 2?Richard K. Meade, democrat. 3?Thomas H. Arerett democrat; majority,* 4?Thomas 8 Bocork. democrat; majority, 300. 6?Paulua Powell, democrat; majority, 26. B?J nines A. Sedilon. democrat. 7?Thomas li. Bayly, democrat. 8?Alexander R. llollnday. democrat; majority, 52. 0?Jeremiah Morton, whig. 10?Richard Parker, democrat. 11?James McDowell, democrat. 12?-Henry A. Kdmundeon, democrat. 18?Fayette McMuilen, (probably.) democrat. 14?\t iIlium Mci omas (probably.) whig 16- Alexander Newman, democrat. The delegation will, therefore, stand, thirteen'Ucmo crats to two whig* Last Congress, nine democrats to nix wliigs. Thus, Hit democrats gain four mcmburs. The wliigs lose the Third, Fifth, Sixth, Twelfth, and Thirteenth Districts; and hare probably gained the Fourteenth District. It will bo seen that the whigs lose three districts, by aggregate majorities amounting to legs than ninety rotes in all; and the Sixth District they lose in consequence of a division respecting the support of Mr Botts. At tlio residential election, eight of the districts gave majorities to ( ass. and seven districts gave majorities in favor of Taylor. Father Matthew's Visit to the Uviieii States.?We are informed that a gentleman lias just arrived in this city for the purpos* of miking arrangements lor the visit o Father M itth-w to the United Mates. If the necessary arrangements can be made during the ensuing week, when the temp -ranee societies will celebrate their anniversaries, the greut apostle of temperance may be induced to make his long-promised visit, and remain amongst us for eighteen mouths, travelling all over tho country. Steamship Panama.?The steamship Panama, Capt. Porter, which we have mentioned as being at lfio Juneiio, tvas only twenty-six and a half days on the passage, though she was much heavier laden than the California or Oregon. She was to leave for Panama on the 26th of March. City Intelligence. The Weather.?The weather, yesterday, like several of the preceding days, was very pleasant, though, about noon there were indications of an approac lug storm, and at five o clock there was a slight sprinkle of rain, the clouds fur some time being thick and heavy, and gaw promise of a storm, which would be m >st acceptable ill the present dusty condition of the streets. May. thus far. has been delightful, and there is hope that it will continue to be the mostjpleasaut mouth, which bus yet passed, of the year. The New Citv Council.?Tho new Common Council will bo orgnui/.ed on Tuesday next. I'rorious to that day. agreeably to general usage, the members elect appoint in caucus, the President of their respective boards In the caucuses held it has been decided to appoint James Kelly, Ksq., of the Second ward, President of the Board of Aldermen; and Kdwin D. Morgan F.sq., President of the hoard of Assistants. The present clerks of the respective boards, Mr. Valentine anil Mr. Scott, will be retained, both of whom arc good officers; the former of whom has acted in the same cupaelty for fourteen years. Hmicrant Arrivals.?The number of emigrants who have arrived at this port during the past mouth is enormous being, from April lid to 3 o'clock yesterday (Slay 3d). 30,008?an average of 1,121 per day. Ou Wednesday. the number was 7,028 ; and yesterday, up to 3 o'clock, P. M .. 2.200. At tho rate of arrivals during the past month (of April), the whole number, at tho port of New York alone, during the yeur, will hoover half a million ! Iron Houses.?The subject of the construction of houses of iron, iustcad of brick or stone, has begun to I be a subject of consideration among the business men of llie citv. That iron is n better material than either of tho others, there cannot be a doubt; for. while it Hiving more room, the strength is more than eij nal to the stlength of H .-tone or brick wall three feet in thickness. Tlie casting* combine strength and beauty with economy. 'I hey uru economical, because they are more lasting In ease of tire, should the whole interior of | the building be destroyed, the walls, or frame, is perfectly strong, and cannot possibly fall, every piece being strongly bolted and anchored. In the ordinary brick or stone buildings, should tho central pillars bo removed, tin; whole side or wall must necessarily fall, there being no support from ubovo; but, iu the iron buildings, the centre pieces are so interhraced, that, should all the centre pillars be removed, the building would stand secure, the upper bracings acting as a support. This species of building is entirely new in this country, there huving been, as yet, but four completed, which are situated at the corner of Washington and Murray streets, an inspection of which will at once satisfy the beholder of their utility and superiority. Besides tho advantages spoken of. tho iron buildings may be constructed, with the same number of workmen, in less tlmn half tho time of u brick or stone house, of tho same dimensions. Tho excavutions for those at the places above alluded to were completed iu sixty days, from the time the excavations were begun. Those are four stories high, with a front, iu tho aggregate, of one hundred feet ou Washington street, and eighty feet on Murray street Another is in course of construction at the corner of Duanc and Centre streets, it is the property of the inventor of the work, and will be finished to five stories. Should those now built not fail, and there seems not a possibility of suck a tiling, there cannot be a doubt but iron stores will be generally adopted. '1 lie inventor intends, as soon as practicable, to erect for himselfnn Iron dwelling house, which, though a novelty-would certainly be a beautiful structure. An examination of these buildings is worthy the attontiuu of all. especially those engaged in mechanical pursuits. Sali'TI'*?A salute of 100 guns will be fired to-morrow, at TJ M.. by the democracy of this city, in honor of tho recent victory iu Virgiuin. Wnor.r, is rue Fault ??Great complaint is made by those who attend Fulton market, as well ns by those who purchase vegetables at that mart, that there is no room to expose such articles for sale. It is said that tlie stalls originally assigned for the sale of vegetables and such things, have been let to hatters, jewellers, ice. Sic., or nt least to persons who sell such articles, until those who sell vegetables are entirely crowded out. This must certainly be a violation of law. Stalls aro provided for the sale of alimentary articles, and it is au abuse of the law to appropriate them to auv other object than their evident intention. So general has been Ut OMluUoa to the legal business of the market, that vegetable dealers are obliged to go to Washington market to be accommodated. Whose is the fault ? Let the matter be investigated, and properly arranged.

Later from Montreal?Add reases to Lord Kl?lib-T)ii Governor Still Absent, dtc. MoffTHiut, Ma/3- M, Since the Issuing of the address of tho British party culling upon the people to preserve the peace, no more riots have occurred. The organization of the various wards for ulterior purposes, if the news from Knglaud should render them necessary, is rapidly going on. The military guard still continues In the place where the Parliament meets, and in the government offices. Several French nddresses, expressive of confidence in the Ministry, have been presented to Lord Klgin. it was reported this morning that the Governor would come in from his country seat, but he did uot. Groups of people were waiting about all thu morning, in expectation of hi- coming; but it is uot believed that any

f .111 6j violence will be shown him. The Miuistry have sustained a i/uaai defeat in the Legislative Council. For three days the ministerial partisans have been trying to get up an address to the Governor, similar in tone to that of the Assembly; but 1 would not do. To-day. by a majority of only one vote, tho debate on the matter was postponed for a fortnight, in order to get a full house. It is suid tho Uuoer Canada radicals have refused to Ili.v tlio sittings of tho House to be trau>:orrcd to Quebec.

Webb, it is stated, is broken down in health, and much altered since he left New Yerk. Tho Globe brought also $30,000 in specie. By recent arrivals at New Orleans, from Texas and the Rio Graudc, ? e have considerable interesting intelligence, which will be found nnncxed: The Indians on the lllo Grande are committing terrible ravages?murdering and robbing all ages nnd sexes. San Luis Potosl has been completely hemmed in and compelled to surrender to an immense body of Indians. The Indians were preparing to attack Palo Alto also. Tho Matamoros flag of tho 11th April, mentions a rumor, which we hope will prove unfounded, that a party of California emigrants, which left Corpus Chrlsti some four or Ore weeks ago, direct for the Taso del Norte, have perished on the prairie from hunger and thirst. Wo have no particulars, except that it has been said by the family of the guide, Agaplto Martlncse, who accompanied the party, that lu^ius reached Corpus Christi, and brings the above report.

"t . . Police Intelligence. Jtnathrr Vitrutl Cate ?Since the unfortunate affair of Pr tv.lt. the man who ???? a victim to hie own discovery, (the wonderful chemical culled chloroform), we have hem free from the horrible practice of throwing the oil of vitriol on female* in Broadway. The reader* will possibly recollect the atfuir; ?nd that the Doctor, while laboring under the influence of chloroform ?u detected in throwing vitriol upon the frail female, iu Broadway, lie was arreted and placed in the Tombs, and. while in the cell, he committed suicide, by the use of hi. own discovery Last night, a guutcal looking young man, culling himself Setli Wood was arrested, in Vesey street. n<ar Church, by offlaer Huberts. of the 3d ward, and brought before Justice Lothrop, on tho chaige of throwing vitriol ou the clothing ol a girl of disri nute called Julia Meadow, huruing her green velvet virctto, and silk dre.s, into ribbons. It seems that, the night previous. Julia was walking in Broadway when she saw a young man come close behind her a id throw something on her dress. This proved to be vitriol. '1 be ruscul escaped at that time The following night ,-hu saw the accused come, in company with a smaller young man, and throw something 011 her clothing. She immediately gave an alarm, us she was convinced It w as vii riol. The accused rail down Vesey stroet, and was caught by tho above named officer. Ou examining the clothing of the accused, largo spots of vitriol were found, pivirg almost conclusive proof that he was tho individual who thus so wautonly destroyed the girls' dlesses. 'J ho accused was committed to nrison bv the magistrate, for a further heariue. It was said Unit the accused had mads threats to a Mrs. V llliaros. that Ik- would give Julia something. meauiug that he would do her some harm. Swindle ujjoii the Public.?Captain M agues, of ths Sixth ward police. arrested, on Wednesday night, two nun. railed James Bogardus and David Davia. on a charge of .-kindling the public, under the following circumstances it appears that Bogardus aud Davis opened a concert room, near the Broadway t heatre, under the pretence of giving an exhibition of negro minstrels. at ?6 cents a ticket. Upon this announcement quite a large number of persons paid their quarter, and took their seats?in fact, the room was crowded; but, ut the appointed time for the concert to begin it was announced that the artists had disappointed them, and that, therefore, no concert would take place that night. But instead of returning the money at the door, they handed out six tickets to each person which was represented to admit tuat uuuiber on the following night. Some t?ok the tickets, and others ruiseil a muss, as it was evident that they had all been humbugged. A number of those persons who thus purchased tickets would further tile ends i*. justice by culling upon Justice Lothrop. and making th -ir affidavits of the facts. Both Davis uud Bogardus wur? committed to prison. Bogardus was also committed uu an indictment standing against him for false pretences.

COMffl Fit C I A L ARFAI RS HON E Y MARKET. Thursday, May 3?0 P. M. The stock market opened quite buoyant this morning, and at the first board, most of the fancies advanced a fraction; things in Wall street appear to be brightening a little, but wo may have a complete revolution to record to-morrow. There is every indication of an easy money market, but the abundance of money does not always insure an improvement in stocks. Speculators are more cautious than they used to be, and many of them have been taught to beware tho ides of June. Fancy stocks are carried now by comparatively a few Individuals. A few years ago, all classes were dabbling more or less in them. Lawyers, ministers, doctors, editors, merchants, carmen, cabmen, hostlers, tailors, milliners, porters?in fact, people of all grades, were speculating in the fa .cies. Such was the excitement created, from time to time, in some leading fancy, that the fluctuations in prices became a subject of almost universal remark. The general in quiry was: "IIow Is Harlctn ? Long Island? Morris Canal ?" or some other stock. Upon taking a drive in the avenue, the hostler who watered your horso would inquire how Harlem was? Apple-women in the street would eagerly ask If Morris Canal had risen. The spirit of speculation had seized all classes, and the brokers managed to make the outsiders carry all the fancy stocks. Now they are all carried by the brokers; and, J until they can relieve thcmselvos of part of the burden, \ prices cannot improvo much, even under the most favorable state of the money ma ket. At the first board to-day, Treasury Notes advanced >,' per cent; Pennsylvania 5's, Harlem, >{; Long Island, ; Heading Railroad, JV; Farmers' Loan, Frio Railroad, ?i'; Now Haven, 1. Frio Bonds fell oil X. The Concord (N. 11.) Railroad Company have doclarod a dividend of five per cent. The I ngle Firo Insurance Company have declared a dividend of ten per cent. The government of Pennsylvania have issued proposals for a loan of $400,000, authorised by the last Legislature, at 6 per cent, for tho purpose of avoiding the inclined piano on the Philadelphia and Columbia railroad. The track of the Nuugntuck Railroad, from Milford to Humphreysvilla, is laid, nnd it is the intention of the company to open it on Monday next. The last annual report of the Lehigh Coal nnd Navigation Company states, that the receipts of the pa.-t year, for coal and tolls, wero $70,000 greater than the current expenses and payment of the Interest on tha company's loans. This excess has been Invested in peraiuuent improvements. A resolution was passed at the late meeting, authorising the company to convert the interest on the common loan, up to the 1st of April, IS60. into Hliares, without preference, at par. At the present time the interest is selling at 50'^ per cent, nnd the shares of the company at ST pur cent.
