In the official list of deaths, published in the Argu-i, for the twenty four hours ending Monday, we find the names ef J. W. Batkins, Thomas Pressar, Miss Davif and Miss A. Bangs. . The following is from the Norfolk Argui:? Truly our soul is sickened and depressed at tho gloom aaw hanging ov< r our devoted city. The sword of the Bestroyer is still suspended above us, and ever and anon deecends and tweens from our midst some of the noblest ?f our people. All that human effort ? all that the self eeeriticing spirit of the few who remain with us, can ac complish, has b?en done to turn aside tbe devastating progress of the scourge which the Almighty in His wis dom lias indicted upon us. Mercilessly li?B it taken friend trcm friend, parent from offspring, offspring from parent, brother from sister, sis'er from brother, husband von wife, wife from husband? souring neither youth nor age nor loveliness. There is nothing to relieve the dark aeas around but the exertion! of those gallant spirits who aaem determined to do their duty wi'li a self-devotion which wiU ever reflect honor upon their efforts. May Biey reap the Christian's reward. KKVKR IN PORTSMOUTH. The Portsmouth T. unscri/^wUich was issued on Friday again, has the following review of his lield of misfortune axe its issue four days before: ? Tbe number of patiebts visited in tnwn on Wednesday, I ?cached about Ave hundreil, including new cases. On | Tneeulty the deaths nuinbeied thirteen. And on Wodnos eleven died. These data the writer has collected feom the reports of the attending physicians, ami an al lowance for those who failed to report. On Thursday the number visited amounted to live hundrod and fifty, in eluding eighty-one new cases. Tlio deaths, as reported by authority, were thirteen in town and fourteen at the knited Mates Naval Hospital, making a total of seven toon. It is tbe opinion of the profession that the disease to assuming or lias assumed a milder type. Tbe statements just mude exclude the cases under treat ment at the U. S. Naval Hospital. We wore there Sun day last, and have been there daily, with some excep tions, since. There has been a diminution of cases sent there, and the deaths also have been less during the week. Tho number of our people thete approaches nearly eighty, ?very attention is lief towed upon them, and Surgeon Mi nor, a gentleman of ability and enlarged experience, with Us talented assistants, Steele, Harrison and Walke. are Indefatigable in their care und ministrations t> those wader their charge. Our Indefatigable Mayor is yet down, but we trust will pass through the disease and b?* ennhh-d in due time to re enter upon his duties. He has been devoted to the service required of h'm, and bus nobly co-operated in the chari table work which demands the co-operation of all of us wdo remain. Winchester Watts, K^j., and Dr. Maupin, are entirely ??covered. They diued at the residence of Mr. John (?. Wat ton on Friday. Samuel A. Forlies in dead. Dr- Maupin, at the llovpital, is con i ulescen t ; and Or. Behooltleld in occasionally seeu upon o ir street*, but too enfeebled yet to resume ni- professional duties. We now have ample medical attendance ? Iho "Macedonian call" having been nobly responded to by our friends abroad.

A negro man, belonging to Mtoe Brirquet was found dyad this morning iu n kitchen an Broad Rock. Mrs. Colonel Charles (Vissell, Mrs. John B. Davis, and Virginius Haynes, her son, were taken with the fever thin morning; also Ned, a negro boy belonging to J W. Collins. There is so little communication lietween Norfolk and Portsmouth that we hear but little from the former place. I have just learned that Miss Morrlset. daughter of ?tfbert Morrlset, of Newtown, is dead, Mrs. Maty Ho hanon is aU*o dead. John Emmerson U out, having recovered. His brother Arthur and Mrs. Armistead are both well. A great many reports have been in circulation in re Bard to J. (.ustavus llolliday, leq. The truth of the I natter Is. that by bis corstant enJeavors to relieve the nick and destitute, he over exerted nimself, and went to the Naval Hospital for a day or two to recruit himself. Tbia is the whole truth of the mutter. LATER FROM NORFOLK AN!> rORTXMOPTII. By way of telegraph trom Petersburg. we are placed in possesion of the most melancholy news from Norfolk | and I'orsmouth. Rev. Anthony Dibrell, one of the most widely known minister- in \ iiginia, died on Satur 'day. Ignatius lllggins, ol the K-xchangc Hank, died on Satur day. John Andrews, a member of the Norfolk Blues, also died on Saturday. In Portsmouth the ravages of the fever are represented aa awful. Yesterday morning Copt. Allen, of the Sea board and Roanoke Railroad, waa taken with black vomit at the N'aval Hospital, and his recovery wad considered "ess. Saturday John Woodley, Dr. Collins' nephew, died. There were eighteen deaths from fever in Portsmouth fjaturdny, and from sunset Saturday evening to sunrise yesterday morning orders were given for fifteen eoflius. Dr. I,eon Oelbardt, of Richmond, arrtved In Petersburg yesterday evening, from Portsmouth, completely ex hausted. He says he has not now and has not had the ?rrer. He was snunned at the depot as if he had t>ecn a wild beast. He took lodgings in the town, and was hos pitably cared f?r. The gallant Ricardo, of New Orleans, had telegraphed to that city for twenty more nurses. The accounts from the two lnfe-ted cities are appalling. BIBnOP potter's circular. Animated by a true Christian spirit, the Right Rer. Bishop l'otter, of Pennsylvania, has addressed the follow ing circular to the congregations of the Protestant Epis copal church, in the city of Philadelphia, and we feel ?very confidence that it will be responded to In a manner creditable to the hearts and sympathies of our citi zens:-. !?*?* Bmihwc ? The ante pestilence which is now desolating two of the most considerable towns in the Wate of Virginia, st*re? no rank or description of the in habitants. Its weight, however, mi* necessarily with ?met fbarfnl severity ujK>n the poor. Many of them can ?either flee from Its attack, no* command the appliance which, in the case of those more favored, often allay the Intensity of disease, and mostly increase the prospect of recovery. At the same time all the ordinary penults of hidnstry are suspended, and thoee who depend upon their daily labor for support are stripped <if all means of pro- | riding for their daily waate. Much has t>oen already done Ty the spontaneous contributions of the hecevolcet to meet this exigency, bnt more is needed. The plague stdl advances with unrelenting tread, and our hearts ?deken at the thought of the awful suffering and -orrow which mast now darken manr a late happy num.'. There la every reason to apprchend'that stern necessity and the Call rains will compel many, who are now absent, to re torn home from their temporal y encampment In the woods, near the infected cities, and thus add fuel to a disease which rarely abates before the month of Oc In his wonderful mercy and goodness, God has thus far epared onr city from a like visitation. I*t us testify our gratitude by remembering our alillcted brethren in this Weir day of dire necessity, and le> us do what we may by ?or thank-offerings to soothe their distress. I-et our prayers be odbred. that our lleavenlp Kather will be B" ?sed to arrest the further pr.,grr-?, of t),j, scouige ? t be will continue to raise up generona spirits, wh > will hasten to succor the de-orte l nod h?l| less hy their j j*r'0Lul ministrations? that he * 1U op n ih{ haud| gl the faithful to n apply all necessary mean* ? and. above all, teat his llulv Spirit may descend u|>on us all In new measure* of wimldni and grace, that we may apprehand better than ever the vanity and insufficiency of life, if it be not consecrated to work* of bene licence and the faith ful service of God. I hereby recommend and affectionately re ]ue.st thnt on the morning of Sunday, the ninth day of September, in stant, collection* he made in each of oar congregations for the relief of the sufferers in Norfolk and Portsmouth, and that the amounts offered be paid orer immediately thereafter, to the committee appointed by the citiaena of Philadelphia to receive such contributions. The citizen* of New Haven have subxeribad $1,025 for the relief of the sufferers at Noifolk and Portsmouth, and an ice company of that city has xent on fuur hundred tomi of ice, which la valued at two thousand dollar*. Governors of the Alms Honae. | The Board met at 4 P. M ? present, Governors A. Town send, (in the chair) Draper, Smith, Tieuianu, Duke, West, Pugro, and Taylor. The Governors were all punctually on the ground, with the exception of one or two of the recently nomi nated candidates for office, of whom it wax facetiously remarked by one of the Governors, (a Council coroora tion in perspective,) that they were probably stopped in ' Striker's" bay, a well known locality in the neighbor hood of the Ball of Records, where " strikers" spot the politicians. In due time the mUsing Governors turned up, wearing on their faces that profound look of resigna tion usual with politicians before election time. The effice seekers were tenderly condoled by the other Go vernors, who sympathised with, while envying them in their affliction. AT Tire WATERING PLACH". A communication was received from James C. Ruther ford, Clerk of the I.unatlc Asylum, notifying the Board that his leave of absence has been extended by the Com mittee on that Institution. He explains the circum stances under which the extension was granted, aud adds: ? " I write this to undeceive you, as I understand that Dr. Ranney has made a kind of half whining com plaint of not being able to get away, when the fact is, w e had a perfect understanding on the matter, so much so that I informed him that if he should change his mind, and write or telegraph me, 1 would return at once." VKNT1 l-ATION AST) DRYIVO. A communication was received from H. Eldridgo. the Warden on Randall'* island, complaining that the drying department in the waxhhouse is very imperfec', calling the attention of the Board to the great importance of having this departmei t so perfected that the children may at all times have dry and clean clothes, which he is sure will reduce the number In the hospital. The atten tion of the Board is also called to the necessity of venti lating the buildings on that island, particularly the sleep ing apartments occupied by the children. The Warden is convinced that the bad air in those apartments, caused by the large number occupying them, contributes to the prevailing diseases of the institution, especially sore eyes, and he is sure a better state of things would mani fest itself with better air. Gov. Smith remarked that while the arrangements of the washiooms had answered every purpose, those of the drying room had proved an entire failure. He offered tne following resilutlons: ? Resolved, That a building be erected for the purposes tf a boiler aud drying room adjoining the Wash house on Randall's Island. Also, to furnish a new boiler or boil ers of sufficient size to heat the drying rtioni, and supply steam for all the culinary purposes ol the cook house. Resolved, That $2,600 bo and arc hereby appropriated for the above work nnd materials. Rctolved, That $.r>00be and are hereby appropriated to ventilate the dormitories iu the nursery depu tment ou Randall's Island. Governor Draper opposed the resolutions relative to the drying room, for, he said, so far as his observation went, those attached to other institutions were also nearly useloea; clothes were generally dried in the open air. Governors Tiemann and Smith explained that f ho failure was directly attributable to 'he small size of the stoam boiler, and conseijuett limited supply of steam. The resolutions were then adapted. SCHOOL Hot MI ON HAN DAM '8 ISI.AND. The following was moved by Governor Tikma.vn, nnd after some debate, adopted: ? ? Resolved. 'J hat the matter of tho school house ou Ran dall's Island be referred to the Committee on the 1. land, to confer with the school officers of tlio Twelfth ward iu relation to the same, and teport to the Board. 1IIE PENITENTIARY HOSPITAL, BLACK WELL'S lSI.ACT). The monthly report of this institution, for August, by the Resident Fhysielan, J)r. Win. W. Vanger, is a sugges tive document. iutd ??? regret thnt we have not space to give it in actenao. Tine number of patients under treat ment during tht .month is suited as 48'), namely: 100 males, and ;!89 females. Of these, lfi8 wore admitted to tho hospital riui ing the month of August, and the statis tics relating to these admissions show that males and 99 temales were under :>0 years of age. There were 40 American born patients in the number, '29 of whom were natives ot this State, tlie remainder belonging to Maiue, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Massachusetts. New Jer sey, Pennsylvania, Alabama and Georgia. Of 128 foreign CIS, Great Biitainaud lier colonies contribute 117, Ireland alone having furnished 94 subjects. In this connection, another table shows that of these foreigners 34 have been less than 6 years in the United States, 41 have resided here between & and 10 years, '28 from 10 to 1& years, anl svi on. The education, social condition, habits, religion, 4c., of these persons arc nil exhibited; thus 19 (only) could "read and write well," while 87 were but Imperfectly educated, and t:0 totnlly uneducated; U8 were single. 40 married, and 'J'2 widowed; 18 were of temperate habit*, 46 claimed to be "moderate drinkers," 8;l were confess edly "intemperate, " while 19 owned to being "habitual drunkards. '' Of these "intemperate.i" and "habitual drunkards," we find that 611 of the former and 13 of the latter were under JO years of ago. There were admitted of Protestants, i!l natives and 19 foreigners; of Roman Catholics, 11 natives and 86 foreigners, and of those who did not profess any creed whatever, 8 WltiYVS and 'J) foreigners. A list of the occupations of the pat tents prior to their admission, includes bookkeepers carpen ters, shoe makers, tailors, teachers, dressmakers, seatn ItreiK.?8,' ""rrants, and others tw numerous to tran scribe. ^''"g the month 171 wcio discharged, 101 of wV u T\ere cured, and B9 relieved; but by far tlw most pi ,,U' 1 ing feature in the results of the month, Is tCC very small rates of mortality, death Laving Occurred in only 4 rases, an average of 1 for every X'l'l patients treated. These lacts alone speak most eloquently in favor of the hospital, and clearly demonstrate that neither talent nor attention lias been overlooked in its medical arrange ments. The prominence which is given to the statistics of this institution, by the regular presentation of these valuable repoits of Dr. danger's, U a most pleasing sign of tUe progressive movement of that principle which regards the outcatt and suffering poor as (it objects for other treitment than is accorded to criminals, and we hail su '1' documents with pleasure, because an> thing which dra'r* tlie attention of the public to the matter must eventually aid the cause of humanity.

Defeat of Santa Anna's Troops at Tula ? Preparations to Attack MaJamorot ? Its Desertion by the People , the. In search of military excitement, I have left my humble home, and am now within what wan until lately his Serene Highness' dominions, ready and willing to take a bund in the overthrow of thin low and infamous tyrant. I'p to the time I left Brownsville, Woll continued enjoying htnnelf in burning down houses, fences and fields, una was fast fortifying himself to give iw a warm reception. He ?hall have a good chance to show his pluck, if. contra ry to what 1 believe of the man, he will make a stand and fight desperately, as many continue to believe. Owing to the information received by Governor VI daurri from Zacatecas, Col. 7uaza, with a force of 1,'iOO mounted riflemen, was detached to assist the citizen* there in organising their revolutionary government, and driving I'avon out of the place, who was there with some 600 of the despot's forces. San Luis I'otosl would have pronounced before now, 1 they only bad arms with whicli to arm the citizens. On the 29th ultimo, Lieut. Col. Sayan officially reported that he had attacked and defeated at Tula, in this State, the government forces under Col. Cobos, which constated of some 300 men. The Colonel, accompanied by his order ly, made good his escape after the loss of his entire force, in killed, wounded, captured and dispersed. To-morrow, the fedei al forces that are destined to ope rate against Matamoros, will commence concentrating at Coma go and Hier, on the Kio <!rande, and after organ izing, it will consist of some 3,000 men, rank and tile, with the necessary artillery for attacking Woll's fortifica tions. The third part of this force will be composed of well mounted cavalry, and all to a man feel confident of success. To oppose this force, Woll will have some U.000 men in fortified positions, which ought to be enough to hold the place against ns. The true cause wlty Matamoros has net been invested by this time is. that we are short of ammunition for the artillery, but this is being rapidly prepared in sufficient qnantities to justify an attack on the place. From Matrmoros, the families continued to go out of the place, and Woll's atrocities have concentrated public opinion to a man ugalnst him. The final success of the revolution is now beyond ques tion. We shall sec bow Santa Anna's miserable creatures will attempt to justify themselves when brought before the tribunal that will try them for their manifold crimes. My position in the federal army will enable ine to keep you correctly informed of what may transpire, and the numerous readers of the IIkkald, who take an interest ip what is transpiring on this line, may be assured of being well posted up through its columns. RIO BRAVO. Newt from Bnenoa Ayrra. The hark Kanawha has arrived from Buenos Ayres with advices to the 11th of July. She left the United States steumer Water Witch, short of powder, not having enough on the Fourth to fire a salute. The British Packet of last date, in a retrospect of June trade, says : ? The customary supplies from Brazils and the i'nited States are in brisk demand, and maintain full prices, with a decided upward tendency. Sugar, coffee, tice. yerbn and tobacco are scarce, and consequently high. Salt and American lumber maintain the advance mentioned in our last. Of salt and lumber the stocks on hand must be very heavy; and it is difficult to account for the sudden reaction and firm tone, especially of salt, t)ie demand for which ut the present moment appearing rather problematical. In our last we alluded to the high price of flour; and it is now our unwelcome duty to report a further advance during the month, of from 2ft to 30 per cent. In these circumstances wo feel warranted in repeating our earnest protest against the established import duties on flour and wheat. We continue to receive small quantities ol wheat from Montevideo, bu'. nothing to check the upward court c of our market. To do this effectually we require at leust tour or fiie formal cargoes of American bour. In exports we may repeat the word# of an experienced and competent judge, who assured us that "lie had never seen the produce market in a more deplorable stale." Of salted ox and cow liiiles a lair proportion have been des patched to (ireat Britain; but in dry. I'uly, Spain a'.id the I'nited States have latterly been taking the lead. France, while importing heavily, has been rather moderate in ex perts. \Viib regard to our quotations of export produce, it must be remarked that the prices are to a considera ble extent nominal. We give a synopsis of the bills introduced by Senator Cnlvo in the legislature: ? The first suppresses all port dues on national and foreign vessels; ami, moreover, docs away with stamped paper in the entry or clearance out of vessels. The second entitles all aitlcles, without exception, to the privilege of deposit, at the option of the importer. Third exempts from import duty a specified number of articles, including tools, machinery, coals, charcoal, Iron, and building lmileitnls generally. Fourth Exempts from export duty all produce of the country shipped from Bnhia Blanca. Hfth dcclaie* the port of Villa del Carmen, in Rio Ne gvo, i'atagoues, a free port, for import and exports, for the teim of ten years. t-ixili provides for the exportation of count ry pro duce free of dnty irom the |Kirt of San Nicholis de los Arojos. . ft Tenth authorizes the executive to establish and re cover pontage dues, and other imposts, for the purpose of erecting bridges and otherwise repairing aud improv ing the public roads. Eighth establishes an abatement of the import duties on goods introduced in vessels that bring immigrants, according to the follow ing scale, viz: from 50 to 100 immi grants entitle the Tessel to n discount of three per cent on the import duties of the entire cargo; from 100 to iiOO, to a discount of fi\e per cent; from -'00 to 300, of 7 per cent ; from .'-00 to ?100, of eight per cent; from 400 to G00, of 9; and of more than 600 to a discount of 10 per cent. Hie passage of these bills is advocated by the press. Br. 1'ortela having tendered his resignation as Minister of Go\ eminent, Dr. Alsina had been named in his stead. A number of parties have been apprehended on the cliarge, it is said, of complicity in a conspiracy, respect ing which we have heard many conflicting reports, but no reliable details. The Sterling Murders. OCR fcTKRM.NO COKRESrONDEXCB. Stkmjnq, Cayuga Co., Aug. "0, 1855. Last Jtoni (ids nf the Murdered Boy ? Remorai qf the Mur derer to Prinon ? I lis Kndeavour to Implicate Otters ? Pattick Fitzgerald Ex</ner<Ue<l. Our unuiilly peaceful town wan thrown into a state of terrible excitement thjs morning, by the perpetration of a deed which strike* a chill of horror to every heart. A boy by the name of John Fittgerald, with Ufc delibera tion of n fiend, put an end to the lives of hismther, mo ther and youngest brother. The family had retired to rest, with the exception of the criminul, who bad been quarrelling with lus parents, and had refused to go to bed, but lay down on the lloor in the kitchen, 'towards morning lie arose and took an uxe, went into the room of his parents, where at one blow he neirly severed the head of lib) father from his body. He then attacked hU mother, who raised her head, and after four or Ave blows, any one of which seemed cm ugh to accomplish his object, he succeeded in killing her. Ue then went into the next room, where his brother James, a boy of fourteen or fifteen years old, lay sleeping on a lounge, lie struck the boy on the face with the axe, making a fearful gash, and breaking his jaw bone; with another effort he cut higher up into the cheek ot the child. By this time the remaining brother, I'atrick Fitzger aid, was awakened, ho supposes by the tailing of Jauics from the lounge. He hastened out of the recess in which he slept, (for it was in the same room), and was nut by John, who pointed to Ills parents' rhambor and said, " There is a man in there." I'atrick saw his brother James on the floor, weltering in his bh.od, and wild with fl ight he flew to the door and mitdt his e cape, and alarmed the neighbors. James O'Neal was the tirst man to reach the scene of the hor rid butchery. The boy was still lluug. Ho had straggled around the room, bad been to his mother's bedside, and seemed to recognise O'Neal, and cried '? Take me away , take me to your house." Ho lherully lilcd to death. The neigh bors gathered in, and, eve. whelmed with horror, tiiey gazed in the fearful spectacle ? the now ?en-.eloss and dying boy, with his clothes completely drenched in blood, while the same fearful color dyed the floor over which he had walked iu his agony, and the dead pa rents in each others arms in that lied now soaked in their ow n gore. And there stood the murderer ? a flno looking boy of between seventeen and elght<?n ycats. He expressed some concern, but the iinj icssion of hU guilt was too strong with that awe-stiicken crowd for liini to excite any sympathy. I luring the while day till the arrival of the coiouer in the evening, the gteau>*t confusion pre vailed; |?ople were pouring in from all part* of the coun try. 'I lie unhappy boy has confessed his crime, but wl?hes to implicate others.? their names not being given publicly we will wait the result of the examination to morrow evening. Augu-t 31, 185V An examination was held this evening before Justice Tilfnrd. iiuring the day John lia 1 mentioned his brother I'atrick as nn accomplice, but afterwards denied his huv ing any knowledge of the intent.

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. MONEY MARKET. Tuesday, September 4 ? 6 t'. M. The tendency of quotations at the opening this morning was downward, and before the o'ose lower prices ruled. The only stock on the list in which there was any improvement was Erie, and the ad vance iu that was a small fraction. Reading, Nica ragua and Cumberland sold freely at a slight de cline. Pennsylvania Coal was in more active de ntand. Western railroad stocks were generally neglected ? those having real merit not offering and those of a fancy character finding no buyers The cobweb railroads of Ohio are daily losing caste in this market, and we look for a depreciation in their stocks similar to that which has overtaken most of the New England railroad*, particularly those of Vermont. At one time the railroad* oi Miinnichu etts were considered among the best in vestments of the day. Now they are among the won-t. Western railroad stocks have the same diffi culties to contend with that ruined the Eastern roads? competition? and the result will be the san e. At the first board to-day, Albany Exten sion Bonds declined 1 per cent; Erie Bonds, 187">, 4; Illinois Central Bonds, J; Canton Company, J; Nicaragua Transit, 4; Cumberland Coal, 4; Cleve land and Toledo, A; Michigan Central, 4; Reading Railroad J. Erie Railroad advanced | per cent. The upward movement in Erie is attributed to the increased business derived from the Hornellsville road. It is estimated that the gross earnings this month will exceed six hundred thousand dollars? a larger sum than ever lefore earned. There is u strong movement in the stock, and it may be par tially guiceesful. After the adjournment of the board the following sales of stocks were made at auction by Simeon Draper: ? l.r> -hart'* Chatham Hank 90 10 do. St. Nicholas Rank 95 >3 lV3 <lo. Webster Fire Insurance Company 01, 200 do. Proprietors City of Brunswick stock. .. . V1.: V0 do. Catena and ChlcBgo Railroad 111.1* 100 do. Delaware, I ackaiuann and Western R.R. "6 000 do. C'blo and Mississippi It.lt. (K. division). 11 j. At the second board the market, with the excep tion of Erie, wftB lower. The transactions in Erie were large, at an advance of ? per ceut. Heading fell off 4- The steamship Pacific, from thin port for Liverpool, to-morrow? Wednesday? will take out about half a million of dollars, and the Hermann, from this port for Southampton and Bremen, on Saturday, will take out about eight hundred thou sand dollars. The total shipment for the week will not vary much from one and a quarter millions of dol lars. The Sub-Treasury will absorb during the week upwards of half a million; ho that at the time of the next bank statement, nearly two millions of dollar* will have been taken out of this market. The bank* must, therefore, make a very poor show of specie next week. The amount reported on haudon Satur day last, the 1st hist, was smaller than any previous period during the present year. The transactions at the Assistant Treasurer's office to day, were as follows: ? 1 nid on Treasury Account $10,820 47 I'eeelved " 137.7SO 0!" I'alanre " 5.477,748 V i aid for Assay oHice 307.&S'.* 1 aid on disbursing checks 01,581 00 The warrants entered ut the Treasury Depart ment, Washington, on the 1st inst., were as fol lows: ?

We are glad to sec that the New York Central Railroad Company hav? no intention of rescinding the resolutions recently passed regulating the trans fer of stock. The directors adopted the new system to guard the interests of stockholders, and we do not see why they should consult the convenience of the Board of Brokers In this matter, more thau the protection of the public from such frauds as the past year or two have developed. The company is bound to protect its stockholders and the public first, at all hazards, aud the directors have nothing to do, in thctr official capacity, with the Board of Brokers.

Here is a gain in the month of 14,038,* HIS. The decrease in exports wa< principally in specie. Our foreign trade this year has been large ly in cur favor, compared with last, and the ship rot nts of specie have not been governed so much by our indebtedness on our commerce, as in previous years. Mr. Btuk, the individual who is so anxious to be elected cashier of the Mechanics' Bank, has made two attempts to reply to the oalm, dignified statement of Ur. Edmonds relative to the administration of the affiurs of that institution. This Mr. Burk has held a sub ordiate position in the bank about four years, and he not only makes an e/fbrt to give an account of the management of Mr. Edmonds during that time, bnt has actually been overhauling the books for many years previous, and trying to explain what be does not begin to understand. The post, tion of the bank gives a little importance to some of his statements; but he exhibits so much bitterness, so much spite, such a narrow mind throughout the controversy, that even that importance is destroyed. In looking over the books of the bank from 1840 to 1S44, this individual, who is so great at figured, has discovered that there was no credit of discounts re ceived on drafts, and he at once jumps at the con clusion that Mr. Edmonds must have privately dis posed of the amount received. Had he not been so blinded by his prejudices, he could easily have learned that during the period named it was not the custom of the Bank to receive drafts as cash which were at any discount; consequently there could have been no discount to credit. It is also well known by those whose memory extends further back than Bnrk's, that Mr. Edmonds was taken sick in June, 1840, and was in the bank very little for several months. In November that year he went to Europe, and did not return until August, 1841, Mr. C. Stebbins, of Cazenovia, acting as cashier in the meantime. From January first until about the mid dle of April, 1842, Mr. Edmonds was in Albany, ob taining an (Iteration in the charter of the bank, per. mitting a reduction of its capital. During that time Mr. Knapp was in full charge. It is barely possible that Buik knew nothing of these facts when he set about Ranting up items to strengthen his case, and little Inew who be was implicating in his charges* Tlieie was a very interesting story published in a recent number of Dickens ' Household Words, called tlw "Toady Tree," which we recommend to Mr. Fnrk for careful perusal. We leave him to apply the moral. This individual is, we hear, a candidate for the vacant cashiership of the Mechanics' Bank, an institution which holds the funds of the city treasury, and has enjoyed a high degree of credit under the mrfhagenient of Mr. Edmonds. It is to be hoped that so long, at all events, as it holds the city'n funds, it will continue to be well managed, and it is therefore necessary that Mr. Edmonds' place should be tilled by a man in whom the com munity at lar^re have the highest confidence. The directors of that bank have a duty to perform to tho public as well as to their stockholders, and we trust they will exercise their best judgment in the selec tion of its oliiiers. ? ; Stock Exchange.
