Oh the arrival of the vaial, ?he waa reported by the mister to tbo ooneigneee of the iroa, with a request for ad vie* us to tlie plain of diacharge. They expressed a wiah that she chould discharge at eons dock bet weeu Waehiogtun market and the Battery, which wai assented to, provided a vacant berth could be obtained; bat, on inquiry, the nearest berth vacant to the place meat oaed was ph r N >. 39 on the North liver; and which was as signed accordingly by ene of the harbor muter* to the thie till which it waa understood might be in the oonreo of h few days. This waa tot aeeented to by the agent* of the ahlp, and the master commenced discharging cargo at pier No. 89. This pier is abont eight hundred fe?t loog, the outer end for some forty feet solid, the other part built on piles, called n brides pier. The iron was discharged oa this part of the pier. The delivery wm commenced on Thurs day morning, (June "24,) and coutinned daring the day time till 11 o'clock next day, when the dock muter, having notice 1 the quantity of Iron on the pior, and apprehensive it would give way undor the weight, signeu accordingly oy one or ine naroor miner* w i vetseL The consignees objected to the delivery at t place, and insisted that the vessel should postpose it' piers Nos 8 or 9, lower down, should he vies ted, wai forbid the muter discharging any more of the cargo. 1 knocked off The hands engaged knocked off for n time; but, in the afternoon, * gain commenced the delivery, and continued, until again attracting the aotioe of the doekmutsr, they lorbidden the I were forbidden the aeoond time. They then cease I; but, on the next morning, according to tae weight of the proofs, again commenced discharging, and continued till about 11 o'cleek A- M , when the pier broke down, precipitating eoine one hundred and fifty ton* of the iron into the river, about fifty tons of which hu b eea totally lcet. Then were only some seventy-live or eighty tons upon the pier, when the warning waa first given to tbe master of the danger. The mister at thie time gave notice to the consignee* of the iron of the warning ot the doekmaster, and requested that they would send end remove it from the pisr, which they ne glected or refused. The simple question in the case is, whether or not this d scbarge of the iron, under the circumstances stated, wu in judgment ef law's delivery to I be consignees according to the requirements of the bill of led Log? We think not. Assuming that the master was jusilfled under the gensral custom and usage of this port, lu discharging the iron at pier No. 39, on the neg lect or refusal of the consignees to procure a different one mors satisfactory to themselves, within a reasonable time, the responsibility of a safe delivery at the place seleoled re,tod upon him. He was hound, not only to seleot a customary dock or wharf for the delivery of such goods as his ship was freighted with, but the place ?elected mast be fit and safe for the deposit of them; and the cargo, also, mast be discharged with all proper care and skill. A discharge of the cargo short of this would be an abuse of the right which the custom of the port extend* to the owner or masters, in case* where the consignee refuses to aeoept, or to par ticipate in too delivery. Nor did the mas or exempt himself from any portion of this responsibility by giving notice to the consignee* of the danger from overloading the pier In the discharge of the iron. They had rofu Md to have anxtbing to do with the delivery at that place; the master, therefore, was left to disoharge it there, if at all, at his peril, without their concent or participa tion. It the p'er was found insufficient for the discharge ot the whole of the iron, a portion should have been de livered at some ether place, and not ce given to the con signees. This was an obvious suggestion, after the dock' master had forbidden any furtner discharge upon the pier at which the Teasel lay, or, what aright have answered the same jpurpoM, perhaps, tbe iron might have been distributee over a larger portion of the pier. An objsotion is taken to the right of the consignees to bring this suit, and also to tha Jurisdiction of the Court below to entertain it. Wo are satisfied, however, that neither objection Is well founded. The consignees ware the proper parties, having mad* advance* upon the consign ment; and as to the jurisdiction, it is the common out of a libel filed for the non-performance of the ooatrsct of affreightment. We think the decree of the Court below right, and should be affirmed.

Jotfph Beers et al. vs. Steamboat John'Adamt.?Oa the 2otU o( January, 1864, a contract was entered into between Jo tin Crawford, shipbuilder, of Keyport, N. J., 1 and William Small, of New, by wuloh it waa ?gioed tbat Crawford should build for and deliver to 1 Email three ferry boats, of certain dimensions, for oer tain sums of money, and that the boats and the mate rials, as faet as they were fittea for use, should be the property of Small, subject only to a lien on the part of Crawford for such suns of money as might be due un der the ocntraet. Crawford was in parnerahlp with B. C. IVrry, at Keyport, and the contract was made by him for the benefit of the firm, and was carried out by the Arm. Under the contraot the John Adams waa built by Craw ford A Terry, at Keyport, and subsequently delivered to Email, at lie w York. They afterwards failed, and made an assignment to the libel lants, who now libel the boat to re cover about 97,000 etill due to Crawford A Terry, for build ing her, and to them as assignees of the Arm, defining that Crawford A retry heda lien upon the boat, either un der the general maritime law, which rives a lien for work done and materials suppl ed to and for a foreign vessel, and tbat as Small was a non resident of New Jersey, the John Adams was a foreign vessel?or under the contract, which especially gave them s lien upon the boat, which would be enforced by a Court of Admiralty. The boat was churned by the People'* Ffrry Company, a corpora tion duly incorporated under the law* of Massachusetts, who allrga that oa Jan. 23. 1864, they made an agree smut with Small to build three ferry boats for thsm; that nadar this coetract Small procured the John Adams ta be built, as on* of them; and that when Crawford ?usda his agreement with Small, 'he knew of Small's sgtrvmvnt with tham; and they denied therefore that toe lib*Hants or Crawford A Terry had any lien upon the vteeel on either ground claimed by them. They also claimed tbat if Ckawford A Terry had any lien, they were deptived of it by virtu* of an attachment Issued against them before the filing of the libel, in favor of ono of their eradluc s. There is SO statute lew of Now Jersey which give* a material nun a lien npid i Teasel for im plies furnished. And It wss admitted by the parties that the boat, while building, was the property of Small, who resided in New York. Held by the Court?That it ia very clear that the Ad miralty lew creates a lien ia favor of a party who doss work or furnishes supplies to a foreign ship, end that a ehip owned ia another Stats is foreign. That in deter mining'the question whether such lion is created also la favor of the builder of a ship as wed as at him who fur nishes work sad supplies to her after eks Is built, the Court Is not controlled by the restricted A Imtralty Courts of England, as exercised by them under the supervising power of of the Common Law Courts. The rule* ana principle# of the Admiralty law as administered by the Admiralty Courts of this oountry are more enlarged, more in conformity to the principle* of the civil law, as administered by the maritime mations of continental Eu rope. That aeeording to that law. the interests of shipping and ships, not only in their creation, but ia their preservation, are of paramount importance; that the importance of this consideration is tbs reason why tbs sssterial man who famishes supplies for the preservation of the ship is entitled to s lien ; and there is the like res son for giving s lien to him who has fur nished necessaries to bring the ship into bomg. Tbat the English law gives only the oommoa law, posses sory to s material man or to s builder, but the maritime law of continental Europe gives s maritime lien to those who build, supply or repair s ship, at least where she is a foreign ship. This is expressly a'atsd by Boulay Paty, and this principle was acted upon for a long time by the English Admiralty, before It war over thrown by the Courts of common law. Teat the right of a material man who has furnished necessaries fur the Starvation of a foreign ship, has b**n repeatedly lo ir lodged by til* Admiralty Co^rt: ?r t&li Country. And J^, reason Silsls why a esrpaater should have a lien on that which by his w*rk and materials he creates, as oa that which he preserves, after ha has cre sted it, end as by the general maritime law a lien exists in the one esse as in the other, the Court most hold that Ckawford aad Terry had a lien upon the boat for the work done and materials furnished In buildlsg her.? That by the contract between Small end the respond ents, no property in the boat veatel la the respondents, who have not paid for the boat, aad the oontract be tween them and Small is not sufficient to defeat tbs lion of Crawford A Terry. That their lion upon the boat would not be taken away by the attachment against them. To take it from them, something am would have to he doao; and nothing more has been shown to have been done. That this view of the ease renders it unneceisary to consider the other points raised. Decree for libellsnts, with a rsferooos to ascertain the ameunt. COLLISION?F1RRT BOAT?LIOUmBD PILOT AND KNOINXm ? POO. C"Aaron Stabrook* it al. vs. Th* steamboat Sylph ? The libel in this esse was filed by the owuera of the steam boat Eagle, to recover the damages occasioned to her by a collision with the Sylph, which occurred ia December, 18/ 3. The Eagle waa a new boat, which raa regularly between Port uoamouth end New York, stopping si Fort Hamilton. The Sylph ran regularly between Ntw York and Btaten Island. There waa a very thlok fog on the morning ot the collision, so thick that at times ob jects could not be seen more than a boat's length off. The tide nt the time waa flood, running at the rate of four knots. Owing to the fog the pouit of collision Is not known exactly, but It was somewhere between Q> veinot'a Island end States Island. The Sylph did not leave New York that morning till 16 or 20 minutes past nine?her teg alar hour of etartlng being nine, at about the earn# time the Ragle left Fort Hamilton?and west ahead at a alow rate, ringing her alarm bell with short intermissions. A short time before the collision, which took plaee 16 or 20 minute* before ten, a ben waa heard on the starboard bow of the Eagle, whereupon her pilot gave the signal to slow. Another bell was than heard In the same direction, and the bed was rung to stop the engine, which wis done. In a minute or two more another bell was beard, at whieh time the headway of tbs Eagle wss stopped, or nearly so. The pilot then for the first time sew the Sylph breaking through the tog about two or three hundred feet off, and Immediately gave the sig nal to back, and the wheels of the Eagle were becking when the Sylph came Into her. The testimony, however, of the witnesses on the twe boats, as to the rets of speed at wMch both were geiag. M to whether the boats wers back lag or going forward at the time of colli ilea, and thoir distance apart when first seen, was very oontra-lietory.

Decree for libelants, with a reference COLLISION IN NORTH RIVER?COMINO TOO WRiR THIS WWW. I'rtieridc if. Victor ef of. n. The I'ropellor Cement Rock?Tbii libel was filed by tbo owners of tho Bretnel bark Carolina, to iscorer tbo damage* occasioned to hoi by a collision with tho Cement Rook, which occurred on tho 12th or October. 1861, off pier No 8 la tho North riser. The Carolice, which bad boon lying on the north aids of that pier, waa to bo taken ont of her slip by the steamboat Only Son, to go to aaa. Pier No. 8 la n long pier; piers Noa. 8 and 10 am abort oaea, aad piar No. 11 ia a long one. There were vessels lying at the end of piers Nos. 8 aad 11, leasing bnt a narrow gap ef about a ship's length through which the Caroline had to come out. The tug was on h?r larboard elds, aad the ?hip came out at the rate of but one or two miles as hour, being under the control of an experienced pilot, who was directed by an experienced hamor mister. A? the Caroline came out of tho gap, a line whioh had bsen carried to a vessel at the end of pier No. 8 to assist in turning her round in tho alip, became entangled so that It ? euld not he msdily cast off, which earned her to move more slowly, but this was aot attributable to any neglect of those on board the Caroline. Aa the head ef the Caroline projeoted out lots the stream, the Cement Rock was discovered coming from a port ap the river, bound to Brooklyn; she waa then passing pier No. 13, whioh ia 329 feet above pier No. 11, and wea ont in the river from 160 to 300 feet, and running at thereto of from six to seven milos aa hour; when about 160 feet off, she rang to alow, to atop and to back; the signals to ?low and stop were obeyed, but not tbo signal to back, in conseqnenoe of the engine catching ou the oen'.re; her pilot put the helm to starboard, but her course was not materially changed, and she came into the Caroline midships. Held by the Court?That upon the testimony no negli gence or improper conduct ia discovered on the part of the Caroline; that when she discovered the Cement Rock she could not go ahead, and had drifted a little with tbe tide, ao tbat ahe could not bs backed into tho alip; th*t the Cement Rook, in coming down the river aa ahe did, with aa engine that would catch on its oea tre, ran great risk of doing damage to some of the ves sels that am almost constantly ooming out of the slips, and tbat there was no necessity for her running eo near the piers; that the Cement Rock could have taken any course. Ilka a vessel with the wind tree, while the Caro line, like a vessel close-hauled, could pursue but one oeurse, aad it was therefore the duty of the propeller to have avoided her; tbat if steam vessels take such a dangerous course as running so near th send of piers, they mutt expect to be mado liable for all eoasequeaoea which might reasonably bo foreseen; tbat the collision was ocoas one J by the negligence of the Cement Rock, Decree foe libellants, with a reference.

In tines of prosperity, competitor lines of road are oontinually ooming forward, and in times of prostration, when capital for the construc tion of neir fOMs oiiCt be obtained, the produc tiveness of those la operation is largely reduced. We have no doubt bat that in less than six months the market will be filled with new railroad projects, all striving for the ways and means to aid them in opening some shorter and oheaper route between points already soffloiently provided with travelling and transportation facilities. We most expect these things, end be prepared to check at onoe every at tempt to get np another railroad fever. There are railroads enough in the country to answer all purposes for the next tea years. Let those whloh are partly finished be completed, and those whloh ere completed be perfected. Let those whloh are la debt?and there ere very few net so?economise notg only in expenditure* but in dividends, until their finances are la a manageable shape, and we shall be free from such collapses In this important interest? aa have bsen realised within the put three or four years. Most of tha roads now In operation are doing a large and profitable bnstneaa, bat the beet of them only earn moderate dividends on their capital. The market value of the stock may be temporarily inflated by the declare tioa of large dividends, bat where they' are not earned, It cannot be long dis gnired, and its reaction is sure to be ruinous to all ooeoerned. A regular moderate rate of livid md? one that will leave In ita treasury at the end of every six months something In the shape of s sinking fond for the liquidation of indebtedness, at its current value?weald in the end be more satisfactory to permanent stockholders and be batter policy for the compaoy. Above all things, it should be the aim of railroad managers to avoid u much as possi ble the declaration of stock dividends, particularly when osoh dividends have been paid to a satisfac tory amouat. A stock dividend, under some clr coinstances, might be justifiable ; but only when it was impossible to make a dividend In any other she ?e should it be continued. Mo railroad company pay ing four or five percent dividend, in cash ?enti annuaRy, has e right to pay aa additional dividend in stock. If the road is sntirely completed In every department, and is wholly oat of debt, then tie aggregate net earnings should be divided In cash If a road is in debt, or not completed, every dollar after paying n flair dividend, ahouli be appropriated to the oonstrnotloo or liquidation account. To t he permanent stockholder, this is the best polfey. The ?peculator is, of coarse, anxious to get all he sen in the shortest possible time, end is therefore opposed to such careful management.

The demand has been mainly speculative, as the prospects are that with a reduo cd sapply and diminished prodnotion, manufactured goods will soon increase in valoe. We have also to notice a fair inquiry from local and country dealers, but these have only purchased as they stood really _n want of stock, and have in the main been very reluctant to pay .fe rites aoir generally claimed by factors. The abipping business has been quit# limited, and been a source of very little profit to parties engaged in it. Bleached sheeting, and shirtings art attracting mote attention and are gradually rising. Bleached goods seem brisker,though they are not really dearer Cotton flannels have not varied.

Nothing particularly new baa occurred in blankets. There la a fair inquiry for fancy casaimeres at full prises. Cloths, doeskins and flannels are aeOiagalowIy, but are unchanged in value.

Satinets and tweeds are more freely dealt in at strengthening prices. Foreign Asbrios are less active titan domestic, but with very moderate receipts and equally moderate ?tocka of desirable articles, prioee of most descrip docs are pretty well supported. The auction basis ners continues rather lively, but its leading feature have not varied materially, it is easy to sell saa aonable productions?which are not abundant, un der present circumstances? at fall prioee; but it i quite ae difficult to find buyers on any terms for un popular goods. The preparations for the next sea Km s trade are bait g made with some degree of libe relity and even boldness, but so far, what has been completed in tbie way has given no evidence of ex travagance in any respect. It is to be wished tha the characteristic of the bueiacM shall undergo no radical change, for at least some time yet If it t? preserved intact, and parties be governed by princi ples npheld by experience, the trade, in all ite ramt bcations, will derive much vigor and prosperity therefrom. ?tock Kzehange. $2000use-.'87.... liex ioc!&?sMchhauw 2C00 Tens 8's '00... 08? 100 d.

NKW BNGI.AND MIMING AND (jlJARBTINS COMPANY. [Correspondence of tbe Courier end Enquirer.] Vernon, Windham Co , Vt., Jane 0, 186ft. During a recent visit to this se itian of Mew England, I wan induced to paen a few days nt tbe plans whence thin is dated, bp tbe promise of tee lag the fnaed elate quarriea of tbe "New England Mining end Quarrying Company," of whloh I liad real aid heard much, and who I understand bare established an ageney In your city, for the purpose of bringing their slate into notlse for the New York market. In Ibis they hare done wisely, and so far as I can judge, I think 1 am safe in asserting that no better slate is to be found tn the world, none more easily reacted or more readily transported to n naikst, and none which would be more likely to repay an invest ment to parties who desire Urge profiU trom small out lay H Ihla valuable deposit lies on both sides of a small rlru'et, tbe lamina? running nearly parallel with its course. By tbe side of this stream u the travelled high way from Brattleboro to Greenfield, renleringthe quar ries uncommonly easy of aocsas Thii mats of slate rise* on aither hand to the height ot more tiau a hun dred feet. The strata are very regular, baring a direc tion noith, ft deg. east, and a dip from 70 to 75 deg. west, or 16 to 20 deg from a perpendicular direction. l'oeeeea'Dg such an elevation and dip, it wil be readily even that the alate can be quartud with the greatest facility, but little expense tor drainage and none tor shaltn being necessary. Indeed, ,we can conceive of no other position in whish alate can bt found so favcnble for cbeap and rapid quarrying rbe layers are very Uni term and alate of any required dimensions can be rea dily obUioed. The quantity of alate la this deposit is truly inexhaus tible. it covers an area of more than four hundred acres, and presents a faca from twenty to a hundred and twenty feet from below, up war da, without going down to the level of the ro ?d bad, and after leaving n saffi stent fall for drairtge and the cumjlngef the waete mate rial. From tnese data it will be readily perceived that no computation is necessary to show how long a period must elapse ere these stppUea will fall. The alate obtained at tie Bruce quarries is of a dark While entirely des iron pyrites whloh ... .. ^uarrtee objectionable, it is so strongly Impregnated with hen united by obtmlcal oflini ies, tbst tbe resonance, toughness and eoniequent durability ot the oJete is thi-reuy greatly improved. Pro fessor Hitchcock, of Amherst College, after a m>nate ex animation of the quarries and the slate there manufac tured, says:?"I have visitrd the famous slate quarries in the mountains of Wales, and it appears to mo that for 11* most part thsy are leas favorably situated for xne siate oovi'neo at u? uruce qua blue o*lor. and exceedingly durable. JUufc of titse cubes and no Jules of i rfhder Iivm Rjquj other quarries working than tbe oae in Ouiliord, nor can I perceive why deb slats should be preferred to that of Vermont.'' tbe Welch slats should be preferred I The durability of slate is governed cbiefly by lte power to resist the absorption of water, and In this particular the Guilford elate stands pre eminent. Near tbe close ot the year 1861, thsse quarries, campri ting nearly all the valuable slate formations in tbe Coaaeo ticut tiver valley, came into possesssion ot the New Eng land Mining and Quarrying Company, This corporation Immediately proceeded to adopt measures for monafac tnrisg slate on n much more extended scale than had heretofore Lean done. They could do this to s greater advantage than their predecessors, inasmuch as tot coo stiuct on of tbe Vermont and Massachusetts railroad to a point less than two miles ctatant tr.?m the quarries, vastly incieofed the faculties for the transportation of the manufactured article to the places of consumption. The imall openings effected by previous operators were made more with a view to immediate convenience than to ultimate advantages. The accumulated debris of years, which thsy left scattered In every direction, was removed by the company, drains were dag from the level of the stream below, new openings on tbe same level were commenced, which are now In progress, sad, when completed, will present one straight and uninterrupted face for operations. The company now employ more than one hundred men, a portion of whom are engaged dlrecly in the ma nufacture of elate, while others are employed in extend ing the openings already mode, laying broad and deep the base for future productiveness. The Slate is removed from tbe quarry in large blocks by means of drills and (newborn, and, in some coses, by blasting. These blocks are split into pieces of a sine convenient tor removal by hand, and wheeled to the buildings wbere the farther processes of manufacture are carried forward to completion. Tbe process of cutting slate by hand, which was for merly practised at these quarries, and the only one now in uee elsewhere, is tec ions and difficult, requiring con siderable practice and skill. Tbe best outters are Welch m?n, who have been bred to the business in their native country; but theie are dlffioult to obtain and more dif flcult to keep. They not only exact great wages, but, like most other imported treeeemen, the supply of whoso services is greatly unequal to the demand, frequently lndalge in the luxury of n "strike." to the great laooa venience and manifest injury of their employers. The Gulllord Company having been frequently soffersrs in this way, one of their number undertook to devise suitable machinery for catting slate, and thas render the proprietors independent of each precarious help. With true Yankee enterprise and skill he folly sacceded, and Welshman are now no longer indispensable in the manufacture of alate. Asa Keyes, Esq., of this village, invented e machine far tbe above purpose, and which was patented January 2,1866. The advantages of this machine over hand cut ting ore manifold. Ws quote from the proprietor'* circnlsi:? 1. It saves from half to two-thirds of the expense of hand outline. 3. The slate are out with straight, parallel sides, square corners and nnlfcrm bevel, and when laid, make a muoh more close and brantlfnl root 3. This machine readers the slate manefsotnrer entirely independent of the freqaent "strikes" and gross emotions of foreign slate outters, for any raw hand will make good slate en these machine i, with a few hours' experience A It Is a saving of the material: "for if the alate, la pro cess of trimming, hears npon a level rest, the uaorenaess of lbs tlata will ooooaion it frequently to break and waste tbe material; Ibut is this machine, the slat*. lmwaver nn wras, a> miwi/m in eon wot with the otronlar dog wheel, at the pel at where it reeelvee the hlew of the hammerer point . __ en iter, and thereby the fteqeent breaking et the slate is avoided. PATtxvti'i Claim.?The combination of tbe outters or hammers on the gy wheel, with the oircnlAr do^[in direot eontaet with which Mob' successive portion of" tbe slate rtsts to rtt'ive the blows ef the eatter, while the slats is ftd np by a carriage on the way*. The Ntw England Mining and Quarrying Company have had for noma months pest fifteen of the machine# In auecesafnl nse, operated wholly by oommon Irish la borerf, and, finding them fully to answer their expecta tions, and capable of doing au that is claimed lor them by the patentee, have entirely abandoned all hand cut ting. To illustrate the advantage# derived from their nse, It is only necessary to state that tbe company are now oattlcg, with three machine, about fifty squares of per day. ana the lands employed can be readily Slat# jl*I J , M.U M? ? VMM Ira .?w?, hired for about one h*lf tbe per diem demanded by Welcbmrn. The motive power employed by the com pany is derived from two steam engines, one of twelve and the other ef six hots# power. Tneoe engines ere so constructed, being set on wheels with the working ma chinery above the boiler, that they eon be removed to any required point, as neceeaity or convenience may dictate. Tbe slate manufactured by thla company is eagerly sought for in Masenahnsetts. Rhode Island end Connec ticut, wheio It Is greatly preferred to any other in the marhet. I have been at aease pains to collect the above history, or ratbei statement, of these qnames, for I trust thai some of the eepiteMets of New leek will be Induced to visit this locality, and judge foe themselves whether a better or surer investment, with a greater oertainty of large profit*, oeuld be found in New England. In the party of which 1 won one, there were several capitalists from Boston and Providence, who declared the nose Ives mash surprised, a* thsy ware dell gated with the extra ordinary spectacle preseoted to them. Like myself, 1ST plSI thsy went fer pleasure, hat they left satisfied that they could not traneact any more leorative hnsines* than to invert In the stock of this company, and If I am correctly informed, a large hole was mads in the few shares of stock belosgtsig to the company. I may mention n foot which I learned frasa a gentleman connected with tbe company. and to whom all were mock Indebted ae well lor much pleasure as fer valuable Information (Mr. Harri*, the Moratory), that they own also a quarry of oil atone nt Marquette, on lake Superior, which, for fineness of grain and durability, I* not approached by anything in the world.
