This last announcement is ?enchisivc ait to ihe deteat being complete, and it is only ?xeelled in importance by the a-^uranoe in the War Jtfaixter's despatch that the las a on the part of the allies vnmi very small. A second edition of the Liverpool Kmet, issned at f> ?'?lock A. M.. on August 18, the day the Canada sailed, haa the following ? It appears that the mo veme i of Ae Russians was in consequence of orders t .nsnutted feem St. Petersburg to the Kusnian generals to attack ?ar lines before the end of August. The reasons which induced the Kmperor Alexander to ate such orders, and fix a date for their execution, were me urgent representations of his commanders, who ?eat despatch alter despatch to thuir government.

The last Intelligence from Oncral PelerWer leaves the Boosiads in full retreat upon M'Kcnzle's lurm, beaten, BerwweU, and short of provisions. Tls-- Russian army ?f ?beervatien, for the time, has no esistenw. It must aarsae its retreat for safety's sake : and. instead of re ?cviag its comrades, must itself seek mlicf. Hie'SlBed commanders have seized upon the moment hen their own soldiers are burning with victorious en thasfcjrm. and when deep dismay must exist umongst the Make of the defenders of i-'ebastopol, to re-open our ttre, afta-ttoment, too, when our approaches are so close to the cmny that hand grenade* have become the favorite wea M of offense, and it needs bnt a short mine to blow his ?Ml and rampart into one of ruins? e short rush to phm our gallant soldiers in possession of the long desir ?dKalokeff.

Thero were seasons for cntcrtaiutng suspicion, and the bales were ?pened, when the arms were found.

There if a cancer in the body politic of Spain which in wanting "its existence; and seeing ho mnch political error we are almost warranted in suspecting bad fiiitii in the govern ment, teeing that evils continue, ami there is no bold and frank ftvirch towards anything. A government which permit* the >(irinciple of civil au thority to be trampled on, as is d?nc by the clergy in the tittWr of the release of lands frwn mortmain? a gov ernmert which treats with so much consideration that insofertt Titan of Rome? that Pope, who disposes of our thing? as if they were bis ? a government which main tains in public off) cm lta own enemies, and leaves its de fenders unattended to, is certainly calculated to provoke suspicion and lack of confidence. It is raid, and I ngree to It, that the chief of the Cabinet is a man of proved patriotism, and one who has given evidence of his love of liberty; but it may also be said that by his negligence, his political indolence, his lack { energy, and, perhaps, of something else, the liberal party was ruined in 184.'!, ami we are marching over the same identical road. It cannot be sail, either, that the Cortes has denied anything which he hud asked of them. It can not be said that he has encountered obstacles in any body to going on wherever he pleased, and the opinion of the country Indicated, and if tho situation is bad the fault is the government's, which does not know how to govern ? which does'nt nerve for that purpose. It is necessary to confess that, so long as the disbursements are not balanced by the income ? so long as the great mlarien of some employes are not cut down and the budget thoroughly overhauled? eo long as the government <Toes not do something to put an end to the devouring thirst for oillco, and does not moralize the country with works rather than words, the state of anx iety will continue, and must necessarily come to an end which will probably bo fatal to existing institutions. 1 told you It wus reported that the Accidental Powers hiid requested from Spain a boily of troops for the Crimea. What was then doubtful is so no longer. 26,000 men is the number. The Council of Ministers has been occu pied with this serious aifuir, and has res >lvod to adopt the principle of the Alliance, reserving to the Cortes the decision ot the terms In which it shall lie veriltod. Rut what n (1 vantages is Spain going to gain by its co operation? What is our intervention going to be? purely military or diplomat i(*iliof Will our soldiers go to the Crimea as allies, or only as material aid and brute co opera tors )/ It is of no importance that the government has given its consent to the tending of 25,000 men; the decision of the Coi tea ri mains to be seen, which will take into ac count the state of penury in which we are. Spanish dig nity will not permit that her troops march in the pay of anybody but berrc)f;but thereure no pecuniary r esources for this expedition, which, unvlted to the fact that we have no business nor motive at all to mix ourselves up with the oriental question, makes it most evident that the government will be routed completely when it pre ents this disagreeable subject to the Oortes.

After di lating upon the peculiar social position of the prosecuting wltuem, his political Htandiag? the very different posi tion of the defendant!, the excitement, prepossessions nod prejudices occasioned by such esses. aa the present, the learned counsel glanced at the evidence of the Com monwealth, and argued that no riot could have occurred at the wharf on the occasion of this rescue of Mr. Wheel er's slaves. Kven the uvxault and battery (Mr. B. con tended) was not fairly made out. Objection wan made by Mr. Webster to Mr. Birney's re viewing, at this stage of the case, the Commonwealth's evidence. Mr. Uirney, resumed ? Jane Johnson had made known her desire to be free to more than one person. She wa? not forcibly abducted, but went away from Mr. Wheeler of her own accord. The character of the parties, be said, will be laid before the jury, to show that they were not on the wharf on that occasion in consequence of any conspiracy. The transaction, under the laws of this State, can be justified. An alibi can be prored in regard to Batlard. The testimouy for the defence was then opened. M. Sundgratn, sworn ? I am a plumber, at 47 South wharves; 1 was on tfae promenade deck of the steamboat Washington on the 18th of July last; I was leaning against the pilot house; my attention was attracted to a crowd withe starboard (tide of the deck; I saw Colonel Whee>er and Mr. Williamson-and Still standing in front of a colored woman with twochildren; I heard Mr. Wheel er say, he understand* all about it ? she is going to New York with n>e, and then coming back;" Mr. William son said, "I want to hear it from her own lips;" he then told her she was as free as the air she breathed; she could go ashore at any moment; Wheeler called her by name and asked her if she wanted to leave her children? she said "No, but I want my freedom;" Williamson put bis band on ber arm and told her to go ashore with him; he assisted her to rife; she got up with hia assistance, ; and while passing around the pilot house, Mr. Wheeler stepped 'before them and raised his hands up ently; they were going towards the passage way; r. wheeler's hands came against Mr. Williamson's breast; Williamson put Wheeler one side gently, two persons took hold of Mr. Williamson; they were white men; I could not recognise the persons; they said to Wil liamson, " Would you rob a man of hU property 1" his reply was '? No, but 1 will tell the woman of her rights;" he then went down the passage way to the lower deck and one <Jf the men struck at him as he was going down; my attention was particularly directed to the children; a small colored boy took hold of one of then ; 1 saw no one take hold of Col. Wheeler except Mr. Williamson, who put bis hands on him gently; the affair occupied about three minutes; saw no violence done by anybody; I heard no noise except from the children; heard no threats, and would have heard such it any were made; there was no thing like a riot that 1 saw; Williamson took hold of the woman gently, in the way a gentleman would take bold of a lady; sbe then rose on her feet and passed round the pilot house to-the gangway; the crowd walked with hor, and closed around her; Col. Wheeler. 1 think, passed his arms around her; I could not see ijistinctly, because tho crowd closed in; I don't think I heard Wheeler say any thing then; I understood <3ol.

A female equestrian treat took place at the Doylestown (Pa.) fair, on the 28th inst.

The first premium was awarded to Miss Mary Aun Koberts, of Doylestown, Pa, ; second, to Mrs. Aaron, of Norristown, Pa. ; and the third, to Miss Jenkens, of Montgomery square. There were about 30,000 people in attendance to witness the ladies' horsemanship. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. KOIIT MARKET. Friday, August 31 ? P- M. The stock market continues in a very unsettled state. At the first board to-day there were very large transactions, principally on time, buyers and Boilers' option, and in many instances at lower prices. The market is depressed by the quantity of stock pressing for sale and the withdrawal of call loans. At the first board New York Central 7'a fell off A per cent ; Pennsylvania Coal, 4; New York Central Railroad, Michigan Central, i; Virginia 6's ad vanced j per cent; Illinois Central bonds, J; Cum beland Coal, 4; Erie RR, i\ Reading Railroad, 1; Cleveland and Toledo, 14. The little improvement to-day was a slight reaction after the- rapid decline of the past few days. In a day or two we shall have another downward movement. The money market is likely to become more stringent as the season advances and holders will be compelled to realize. The outward movement of specie will ad mit of an abatement under the influences at work to encourage it. The banks are rapidly changing their call loans to legitimate discounts, and among Htock speculators money is likely to be moife stringent than among the commercial classes. After the adjournment of the board the following tales of bonds and stocks were made at auction by A. H. Nicolay:? $6,000 Chicago & Misriaaippi R. R. In. 10s, Int. added. 82% 2,000 Mushing R.

Reading advanced 1 per cent, with ac tive sales; Erie, Cumberland, j; Michigan Cen tral Railroad, 4; Galena and Chicago Railroad, New York Central Railroad fell off J per cent, with large Pales. It is reported that tho tonnage of the Reading Railroad Company during the week ending Thursday, 30th instant, was 58,600 tons. This will make an aggregate for the month of August about 25,000 tons greater than for the same month last year. The quotation, a few days since, of 40 shares Utica City Rank at 81 J, was an error, no such sale having taken place. The warrants entered at the Treasury Department, Washington, on the 28th and 2!>th inst., were as Al lows: ? For the redemption of utock. $.160 03 For the Treasury Department 27,481 50 For the Customs 26,060 01 For the Interior Department 9,766 .18 Interior repay warrants received and entered. ti.OflsJ 28 War warrant* received and entered 70,603 la War repay warrants received and entered..,. 426 76 On account of the Navy 9.1,932 66 Covered In from Customs 1,316,414 ?8 Covered in from lands 245,000 38 Covered in from miscellaneous sources 18,036 67 The interest coupons on the bonds of the Water town and Rome Railroad Company, due September 1 , will be paid on presentation at the Peoples' Rank. The cry of " bear," " assertion," " misrepresenta tion," "falsehood," Ac., heaped upon us so liber ally in reply to the few. plain statements we raw it to make last week in regard to the Cleveland and Toledo Railroad, may possibly serve the immediate purpose of the clique of h peculators who make them, but we apprehend they will hardly be deemed satisfactory by those who buy stock for investment It is forthe latter class of individuals that we write. We care not a fig for the millionaire, or the Wall street bull or bear, who may choose to speculate in the stock. The clique of speculators who took or the company the large amount of income converti ble bonds privately at 65 per cent and under last winter, and who have since that time been bidding up the stock with a view to shoving off their bonds, may play their game out successfully against the bears, or they may not ? it is all the same to ns; but we must take the liberty of cautioning the unini tiated small dealers to keep out of the way. So long as the fight is confined to the bulls and bears of Wall street, we do not care which whip*, but we are bound to protect outsiders who are .looking for a safe and permanent investment for their money. We will new notice briefly the charges of misrep resentation and falsehood which have been laid at our door. We will do so in the first place by review ing what we said, and in the second place by admit ting every material fact claimed by onr accusers. We admit them not bccause we believe them, but simply to see how much better off the concern is with ttu-m. In regard to the capital of the company, we stated that it was $7,000,000. It turns out that it is only $6,449,000, exclusive of the floating debt. How much the floating debt is now, it is difficult ti say. On the 1st of July it was $132,000. Altera good deal of quibbling, this has finally been admitted. The capital thenetauds as follows: ? March 16, 1865 ? Capital ftnek $2,900,000 " ?' ?Bonded debt a.Otw.Ooa Jnly 1, 1866 ? Mottling debt 132,000 Total t8, Ml, 000 How near thin comes to about $7,000,000 we leave for hair flitters to determine. If it its a mistake at all it is certainly a very small one. When it is consi dered that this in a clow corporation, having an ex tensive range of private offices in this city, with apm tuieott) and inner aportmentB, where they man ufacture bonds and paper ad libitum, and distribute them privately for jost what they ran get, without notice to the public or even to the stockholders, the difficulty to an outrider of stating the grand total to a dollar on any given day, will readily be seen. We stated that the (276,000 of bonds issued for the last dividend, formed a part of those lecently cold by tac I company. This we frankly admk was an error. The dividend bonds were a fresh batch issued specially for the occasion and delivered direct to the stock holders. The idea intended to be conveyed by our s-tateinent was that a large lot of convertible bonds bad been sold by the company at ruinous rates? sixty -five per cent and nnder. This is a fact which no one denies. Whether some of the dividend bonds formed a poition of that lot or not is quite immut< - rial. Those who have so londly condemned as for letting a little daylight into the finances of the Cleveland and Toledo Railroad Company csnnot doubt the correctness of our figures in cal culating for the next dividend. We have shown that under the most favorable circumstances not more than two per cent can be earned. Official re turns for fonr months enable us to estimxte pretty accurately for the remaining two; and allowing lsit fifty per cent for rnnning expense.*, leaves n simi not equal to two per cent on the capital as it ex isted on the 18th of March Inst. All over that rate must come out of capital and go into construe tion account. We should not be surprised to see this company declare a four or five per cent dividend in Scptcm. ber, payable on the 1st of October. It is so much for the Interest of the management that a dividend tlionld be paid at the regular time, that we have no doubt it will be done at any cost to the company Aa Individuals they will be so much benefitted, hrrt the company will he sacrificed. It would upset all their financiering schemes to fell in a dividend now. When they have ftolly feathered their nest, will be time enough to let the dividends depend upon the net earning*. The principal object In keeping np a large establishment in this city, with numei hi* officei*, cJcrk", Ac., late carry 09 the financiering ao necessary when dividends are paid without being earned. Hera ia a company doing bupiuess tive hundred miles away from this city, and instead of being ao the spot to see that the property ia well taken carc of, we flud the officers here, with full liberty to manu facture and sell bonds, or paper of any kind, at any price, to any amount. A company five hundred miles off that requires its officers to be stationed within sight of the New Tork Stock Exchange to * watcf its stock, requires itself to be watched, and that pretty closely. And a stock that falls six per ccnt during a temporary absence of the chief finan cial officer of the company, and risea three per cent the day he returns, may reasonably be set down aa one of the class alluded to. When the same party ia seen running from one broker'a office to another, just before the opening of the Board of Brokers, giving a dozen different members each an order to buy the same stock, he evidently " wants the stock,'' for that s the way people generally do when they want to get stock at the lowest price for "investment."' It has been one of our peculiar American vanities to suppose that dnring a period of war or commotion on the other side of the Atlantic, foreign capital would rush in for our securities. The fallacy of this ia ehown in the disposition of revolutionary France to prefer its government's promises to pay, at low interest, to our more seductive rates, and the Eng lish do not hesitate to act upon the belief that there is no end to the resources and ability of their gov ernment to pay interest The enormous amount re quired to subdue Rupsia will continue to be furnished, and the eane of our money market has gone far to aid the supply; and the bankers of Europe, holding cart loads of our stocks and bonds, will not hesitate to seud them back at the profitable priccs at which they may be Bold in Wall street. The steady drain for coin is unquestionably the result of withdrawal of foreign capital, which must continue as long as the facilities for borrowing money on stocks are afforded so freely. There is nothing in our commerce, nor do our importations warrant this constant exportation of gold; there is no other solu tion of the problem than the one we have given. The banks do widely in contracting at this moment, or we shall be plunged into inextricablc difficulties, We are not yet able to pay our foreign indebtnees, even in r-mall instalments. Baring's circular, of the 17th of August, says American Ktocks have been generally quiet this week; but there have been transactions in Maryland 5's ster ling bonds at 93; Virginia 6'b hterling at'80, untl Penn sylvania 6's dollar bonds at 84. No Pennsylvania in scriptions for sale under 80. Sales have also been made ol'Louisiana State bonds fi's at 82 of Alabama State O's bonds at 92; of Quebec City O'l sterling at 103 )?; of Cana da ft's at 114)i; of Pennsylvania Central Railroad bonds at 92; Ptinama ,'s sterling at 90: of Illinois Free la ad at 84; of New York Central at 96; of Camden and Araboy Railroad at WJf, and Chicago and Mississippi. E. F. Sattherthwait'a London circular of the same date, says : ? The market for American securities has been steady, without much doing. We note transaction* in Virginia sterling 6 tier cent and Maryland sterling 5 per cent, at rather higher prices. In railroad bonds wo note transac tions in Erie third mortgage and New Vork Central 7 per cent convertible, at full rates of last week. Illinois Cen tral construction bonds are freely offered, with few buy ers. Preeland are in better demand at our quoted rates. Shares continue heavy, and freely offered at 3 discount. Erip Sinking Fund bonds ate dull. Michigan Central 8 per cont aie In slight request, at railier Armer rates.
