We take the following new* from the Mercurio of Val paraiso, of August 25th:? Tlie last mail from the other side brought us very un favorable news concerning the disputes between these two countries. It appears that Brazil not only rejects the I ncitic treaties which her Plenipotentiary agreed to, b'it i* preparing to reinforce her invading squadron. Those movements are indicative of a more hostile spirit than *he has hitherto shown ; and us Paraguay is pre pared for a vigorous resistance, it may reasonably b? i eared that both nations will break out into open hostili ty. 1 his news is of so great weight that we think it ad visable to await further communications to see it in all its importance. We are assured that there lias been a change in the Cabinet of Brazil on account of this question. The Brazilian press is discussing the expediency of an nexing to the empire the republic of Uruguay, which i* now under its protection. NEWS FROM AUSTRALIA. Tnr NEW MINT ARRANGEMENT ? THE TEMPORARY MBA FUREB ABOLISHED ? TI1E PANAMA STEAM ROUTE ? COMMUNICATION WITH NEW YOKE? OPINION OK THE GOVERNOR-GENERAL? THE GOLD FIELDS. By way of Panama we have news from-fydney, Austra lia, to July 2 ? three days later: ? The time fixed for tlio duration of the temporary ar rangements hitherto subsisting at the Sydney Mint having expired, his hxcelleucy the Governor (ieneral has direct ed the publication of the following regulations for the re ceipt and issu* of gold at that establishment. These re gulations, which appear in yesterday's Gcwtlt (June 29), will take ell'ect from the 2<1 of July: ? 1. Importations of gold dust or gold bullion for coinage from 12 ounces upwards, will bo received at this mint daily (Sundays and holidays excopted), between the hoars of 11 A. >1. and 3 1*. M., < n the following terms:? 1. Im portations from ten thousand ounces standard aud up wards, subject to a charge of three-quarters per cent for converting the same into coin. 2. Importations below this amount will be coined at a charge ol' 1 per cent. 3. The value of the bullion will be determined on the re ports of the Mint Assayer*. 4. Importations will be melted, if preferred, in the presence of the importer; the importer will also be furnished ou demand With a clip for assay from his own ingots, as a check on the reports of the Mint Assayers. 5. The mint will issue, if required, gold bullion in bar* or ingots, at ?8 17*. lO^d. the stand ard ounce. 6. The mint will be prepared taulford accom modation to a limited extent to parties requiring early payment fir their btilli n, at an advance of one-fourth per cent on the above charges. Payment in such cases will lie made within three days of delivery at the mint. like following descriptions of bullion are not admis sible within the Mint, vix. : ? Article* of plate, jewelry, or wrought gold (coins excepted), bullion containing mercury or metals ioreigu to the gold producing districts of Australia, and destructive of the malleability of the metal: bullion that has been tampered with in any way. 3. Bullion which can bo recoguized before melting as objectionable on the above grounds, will not be received; but should^any after melting prove unlit for coinage for the reasons euumeiated, it will be returned to the im porter, subject to a charge ot sixpence per ounce on the gross weight of the Importation. There is no political news of importance. Every arrival brings additional confirmation of the in creased confidence of the Australians in the Panama route. The last item is from the Sydney Times of July 2. We subjoin a portion of it:? For some time past we have lieeu aware of a project set on font by a British capitalist largely connected with the trade of the I nited States, to establish steam communi cation between the Australian Colonies and New York and London via Panama. This scheme, which appears to us to be admirably conceived, Is shaped vith the view of embracing equal advantages to Sydney and Melbourne on this side, and it contemplates direct lines to London and New York on the Atlantic. This is to be effected by making Tahiti the entrepot for ttie service in the Pacific, and the final station for the Panama steamers, and continuing the communication by branch lines to Sydney and Melbourne. From Aspinwall to London it is prop med to enter into arrangment* with the Iioyal West India Mail Company for the conveyance of the Engliah freight end passengers, while the commu nication w ill be carried through to Now York by a line of steamers belonging to the new company. The Sydney BinpUre of July 2 says: ? it is calculator!" that by this line Now York will be brought within forty five days, and lxradon within fifty days of Australia. In March the projector was in England maturing his plans, and he writes from I iverpool, on the 8th of that month, as follows:? ' As for passengers, 1 can average 350 tier month from New York alone; and I anticipate that double that number will take passage from this country, besides the British West India Islands, from whioh the emigration will be large." The proposal has been fully laid before the Qovfrnor General by the agents in Syd ney, in antici) ation of a guaranteed subsidy, and has, we believe, been communicated to the home government, with his lixcellency's views on the subject. The follow ing is the principal oommercial news: ? MacDonnell's gold circular, dated on July 1, says:? The demand has been brisk, but very little gold dust ofiering: this may be partially accounted for in conse quence of the high price in Port Phillip, vie: from ?8 17s. 4Jjd. to 17*. (3d. per ounce. This, with export duty added, makes C4 per ounce ? a very high figure, particularly for Bendigo and gold diiHt of that quality. The escorts, western and southern, brought to the Treasury this morning 2,4.0 oas. 8 dwts. This is not an average quantity, when it is considered that the diggers for Rome time have been keeping back the gold oust to send to tire royal mint for coinage. No doubt the high price ot golu dust in Port Phillip and the abolition of the license lee there havo been tho principal cause of the small supplies lately received from those diggings; numbers, no coubt, leave for the Victoria tlold Fields. The Cold Fields bill will be brought again before the le gislative Council, and itouglit to be taken into onsidera tiin whether the abolition of the license system here would not be beneficial to the colony. MARKETS. Ryomcv, Friday (evening), June 29 There ha* been but little stir during the pint week. Trode in general still continues much depressed. It is true that Rome large sale* have been made by auction, yet these cannot be taken as a general criterion of the market. Our late arrivals have cunt libuted several article* in demand. The principal portion of the e were bought to arrive. The flour market is anxiously watched. The millers have re fused their usual quotations. Brandy ? Considerable at tention has been paid to this article during the week, owing in a grea.* measure to the reduced stocks of good brands on hand. Many sales have been effected private ly tor Martell's at 12s. 9d. Some small parcels have boen sold at 12s. Ale an<l Porter ? The late arrivals have not influenced tho markets. There is a fair demand for drnOgbt ale: the stocks are low. and our recent impor tations have done nothing mere than supply our pre ent demand*. There 1* also an inquiry for draught porter, and, as few shipment* arc expected, prices are going up; bottled ? !e and porter a i e rather dull, except for favorite brands. Tea- ? W e have had another addition to this mar ket by a late arrival : no transactions worthy of note have taken place. Coffee ? This market is very quiet. Rice Prices are nominal. Split Peas? None in the market; some few parcels from surplus stores have realized high prices. Sugars ? A parcel of imitation Java sugar has been *old privately, at from ?-4 5*. to?24 7s. 6d. per ton; Rome lfiO tons exchanged hands; they were purchased for up country use. The samples were in clean white mats, snd were a portion of the old Sugar Company's stores. Oilmen's store* ? Parcels have been sold at auction, an 1 pries for good brands remain firm; considerable lots of 1 1 ill and Ledger's brand have been lately offered, and from their superior condition hare had a run an! are taken In preference. Segars and tobacco ? Nothing doing; the market is dull, and purchases are only made for home consumption. NEWS FRO TO NEW GRANADA* ACTION OF THE GOVERNMENTS OF THE ISTHMUS ? TIIK TELEGRAPH AND RAILROAD? AN ANTI-RENT AGITATION? THE ICE SALES? ROBnERIES? A NEW STEAM LINE, ETC. Our files from New Granada are from Panama oi the 19th. and from Aspinwall of the 22d of September. The news is not very Important. ? The Aspinwall Cbiirtcrof the22d ult., says:? The Parrn quial court, under the new government, is advertised by notices written on small scraps of paper and posted about the streets. This looks shabby, and is otherwise objectionable, but it is better thau to order them printed, and then not pay for the work, as former governments have done. The Alcalde is officiating, but as yet ?re hear nothing of a Cabildo, the government caiintt lie made to work properly without such, or such lesly, and It should be a good one, comprised of an equitable representation of the residents ami interest* of the city. The people of Aspinwall desire to be ruled by a strict and comprehensive civil government of those who should rule them, and with S just and liberal regar 1 to the va ried circumstances and relations of foreigners and na tive*, corporations and individuals, established on the Isthmus. They will attain tliat desire, The telegraph between this city (Aspinwall) and Pa nama is soon to lie placed at the public disposition. It will early become or great public utility, lr the tariff is made reasonable. The same paper, oi 20th of September, speaking of the railroad managemeat says:? The Panama Rail road Com pany are endeavoring In many ways to impress the com* merrial community with the great facilities afforded for the ?aft> and speedy transportation of freight bv the Pa nama route ? and they have good grounds to work upon? hut the plan of seeking to reduce the co?t of forwarding, without a proportionate increase of facilities to those aln re y in that line, which we have heard suggested a* their intention we cannot but deprecate. An'i-reni mi etinga were held in the early part of the last month in Aspinwall, which are said to have induced some t the lsndfords t.. promises of considerable reduc tion of rents for the current month, and for some time to come.

The Ro asset family had been pertaining to highly pleased audience* at Panama. The Aspinwall Star, of the Oth of September, says: ? The ice cargo by the flying Arrow, if sold at public sale, would have brought $1,000, whereas it brought lees than $700. It should have cost the people of Aspinwall, for whom It was brought here, six cental, whereu it will now cost them sixteen. At Panama the Jifn Superior recommends that the eon tract for the line of mailboats to Buenaventura should be discontinued, as itsnecescity no longer exists, and as there is a probability of a steamer being placed on the route in a few months. Sr. Nicholas Rubio has received his exequatur as Con sul of Peru. Robberies hail been yery frequent on the Isthmus, but no arrests made. LOSS OF THE BRIO UBANU8. [From the Aspinwall Courier, Sept. 20.] The brig I 'ranus left New York August 27, with c *al for the United States Mail Steamship Company; she had on board eight souls, including the captain and his wife. When the I ranus had reached the Highlands, about 2 P. M. of the first day out. the pumps were tried, and the vessel was discovered to be leaking considerably. Pump ing was continued all the night and next morning witii occasional examinations, which showed the leak to be increasing rapidly, until about 9 A. M., when she was found to have near six feot of water in her bold and Rain ing much more rapidly than at any time previous ? the fiumps, too, were considerably choked, and it was found mposaible to relieve her. About 12 M. the hark Benjamin Adams, from New York, also with coal, which vessel sailed the name day with the Uranus, bound for A-plnwall, came in sight. Shortly after she recognized the signals of distress which had been hoisted upon the Uranus, and hove to. The lonj boat of the Uranus was launched, and all on board were safely conveyed to the Benjamin Adams, ami she started on her voyage at 2 P. M. and arrived here yesterday even ing. We hope the distressed ^-eameu of -tie Uranus will bu provided lor as they should be. * DIED. On (he 10!h of September, at Aspinwall, .lamas Edward Duckworth, a native of New York, son of Mr. E.

HEWS FROM CUBA. Our Havana Corfecpoodcnce. Havana, Sept. 27, 1855. The Month of Havana? a raiul Ball at the Re-union Mansion ? Ttvrnty Ihoutantl Dollars Erp-n<lci on an JJveninff't l'nierta inment ? Tlte Marquis de Pezuela's J'amjiklel uijainst General Concha ? Statutes oj the iVu u Spanish Hank ? Theatrical Got tip, tfc. Since I last had the pleasure of addressing you I have been u guest at one of the most sumptuous entertain menu it has ever been my good fortune to be present at. It was a grand ball and supper given at the rosidenco of the Dowager Countess of La Re-union, in Aquiar street, near the Convent of Santa Clara. I understood the affair originated with the granddaughters of the.Dowager Coun tess, who had intended to have given an "a salto," or sur prise, to their mother, the Countess of Valero de Urria, (whose name is Mercedes de Cuesta.) on the eve of "Nues tra Fenora de las Mercedes," her saint's day. The major dorno was busy with his arrangements, by direction of the young ladies, which attracted the atten tion of the Dowager Countess, who directed him to dis continue and leave the matter to her. He obeyed, and the result was the brilliant entertainment at which i was present. At first, as 1 was informed, it was intended only to have been a family re-union, but it was found that the numer ous branches of the family included so large a portion of the elite of this city, that it would be a gross insult to tlio others were they not also invited, and thus the number of curds sent out were so numerous as to include the friends of the Dowager Countess and her beautiful daughters, who that evening looked more like an elder sister than the mother of her two truly enchanting daughters. There must have been upwards of a thousand guests present. 1 need perhaps scarcely add more to aBSure you that the rank ana fashion of this city were among those assembled, than to state that his'.exccllency, General Con clia, and her excellenza, his amiable wife, wore present. goon alter midnight a figure dance or ballet was per formed by twelve of the most beautiful young Indies of this city anil an ei|ual number of gentlemen. The ladle* lntd blue and red scarfs gracefully suspended over their left shoulders, whilst the goutlemen wore similar adorn ments around their waif Is. 1 will not attempt a description of the gracefulness f x lubited in this dance, for to attempt were to tail. 1 must thcrefoie content myself by saying, that It was the v.'ry "poetry of motion" excmptltled. At about two o'clock A. M. supper wa< announced, and such a supper! All honor to the "ehtf de enitine" who pi spared it. ft was indeed a rare feast. Such a display of plate too, and then such wines ? rarely imlec 1 have I betore i ai taken of any of so much excellence. 1 have already st;.ted that all tlio elite, the rank, beau ty and fashion, of this city, wore present. 1 however misted my old New York acquaintance, the oiegutit Count de Villa Nueva, who is now on a visit to the Uni ted States for the benefit of his health. It fa sai l (and fr< m the suniptuousness of the entertainment I believe the report,) that th ? Dowager Countess de la lie-union expended no less a sum than twenty thousand dollars upon this one etching's entertainment. What will any member of your "upper ten'' say to such a lavish expen diture of the dimes f I liiCvc bad a glimpse at a pamphlet, published in Spain, by the Marquis de la Pezuela, late Captain-General Of tl is island, in which he reviews the conduct of (ten Concha, whom he "handles without gloves." Amongst other things 1 notice he says that he (I'ozucla) had at Various times information given him respecting conspira cies, &c.. by tlie galley slave f!onznles. who, you wili re member, betrayed poor l'into, and wiiicli all proved Arise. Tl.e "rules, statutes and regulation*" of the Spanish bank of the Havana, as agreed to by the ' commission'' ap pointed to frame them, have been published. They diff?r slightly from those received under the "royal seal" from Spain. Aa I am not a subscriber to the f/aceta (the ) per in which they are published,) I hav e only been e bled to obtain a cursory perusal of them I however - i l you some lew of the alterations that struck me most '' cibly : ? All Blrectors of the Ilnnk, In lead of being proprieio ?? of l wenty shares, must lie the proprietors of fllty sluirc", a.', ill "under" Directors of thirty sb.iros. No subscription to he "received for less lhan tire share", whilst by the published list of shareholders I find a large mm her who have subscribed for lour, two, and even one snare. Proprietors of five shares (Instead of ten) to have a vote in any proposed alteration ol the sonnies. Fitted! days' notice is to be fclven of any rail for the ca| "I stock, 86 per cent of wMeh IS to lie paid down, and la.' a per cent at Intervals of two, four, si*, eight, ten and twelve amain ?II the calls are not paid at the expiration ol the fifteen day-, then eight further days for the pay merit is to be granted, when. If the call i? not paid, then all previous sums paid are to be lorl'efted to the government. I did not observe anything further that ailed for spe cial observation. Every care appears to have been taken to rstalili-li the bank upon a sound basis. I must not, however, omit to add that the capital of the bank was originally intended to have been three mil ions of dollars, but only >1 . '251 . 500 Ins been subscribed. Will the government subscribe the deficit? Nou> verront. The opera company has for several nights promised us Donizetti's "Los Martlres," but on ea^h occasion some excuse has been made fur its non-performance.

I on aware neither of the tenor of -aid document, nor of the inten tion of its framer, but must hasten to declare it apocry phal, in spite of a signature unauthorized by my' -If. Accountable only for my own writings. I loudly disclaim all such as enn be evidently ascribed to the |ierversity ot onr enemies. This formal denial will he a sufficient warn ing for div fellow-citizens, who will, therefore, refer that paper tofts proper source, and give it the credit it may deserve. P. VAIJENTE. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. NOBBY M A RKRT. TvmOAT, Oct 2?6 P. M. The stock market continues to be tolerably well mtin falned, In the face of the contraction in the money mar ket which is sweeping on with una hated force; stock dealers for a rise, and bank officers for their interest ac count, sre the last who reuird the evidence" of an ap preaching change. The former live on hope and false hood?the latter on the knowledge that when the deman \ i? made to " stand and deliver," the money must come, no matter who suffers. Dank officers continue to lend al they dare of their customers' money; Wall street men continue to borrow: but commerce is rapidly requiring its capital, and both banks and sto;kjobbers will tie com pelled to meet th* ca>o. A time of fearful liquidation among stock speculators hastens on, California gold to the contrary notwithstanding. The principal important feature in Wall street at the prtsent moment is the late speculation in Krle llailroad stocks, officers and ex officers are said to Aguro In the traffic. The same spirits were largely short but a few day> agi. and their Inlluence was used to depress it They arc tow said to he 'long " to the ex>ent of many thousands of shares and a? a matter of course they see things with very different eyes. ?' The receipts are now large and the i \pen?e?are now ? mall, "and ?? the business of the fall months will exceed belief, and yon can't go amiss to buy a few hundred." An old dodge in the shape of a n*w "report" is thrust down everybody's throat, and so we go In for another rise The receipts for the month* of September, October and November will no dopbt be equal to the estimate, and thoeewf oecessary to cnsuie ih? "olvency of the com. pany. Apart from thin question the concern can have no sympathy from the investing public tor years to come. Erie Railroad stock cannot and will not command invest: ing capital tor a long period of time, if ever again. The rise from 30 to 66 baa brought thousands of shares ontof permanent hands and cast them into the common caul" dron of Wall street stockjobbing. With the ebb and flow of the money market the stock most rise and tall, or so long as men can be fonnd to spend their days a nd nights in concocting plana to humbug the community as they are manifestly doing now. When these ingenious people are satisfied the stock will And its proper line.

In the midst of the present apparent firmness in the stock market there are some very extraordinary facts to dwell upon. Millions of railroad bonds are seeking a market, and do not find it. They draw six and seven per cent interest per annum, bnt there are no investors. Those who have them for sale are admonished by the press and by the public that the coming crop* are the plaster lor all their ills, and that they have only to wait until fall when they can command their own terms for their wares. Unfortunately for them while they wait a new batch is being manufactured, and when the golden hour arrives they will meet with increased and increasing difficulties. It was universally believe! in the fall of last year that too many railroads had been built and that the question oi the productiveness of thoso roads already in operation was by no means settled. Hiese points are no less trne now than then; but during the recent abundance of money men have forgotten their lessons. While capital has accumulated from the contraction of industry and the cessation of enterprise, old securities have found their way to the seaboard and constitute the basis of the ex it-ting bank expansion. They are no better located now than they were last fall ? the railroads are no more pro ductive now than during the year 1864, notwithstanding their increased receipts. We look with confidence for an enormous effect so soon as the bulk of the new crops ap pear, but not the effect so oonlidently anticipated by needy railroad men and sanguine Wall street bulls. At the first board to-day there was a blue time at the .Stock Exchange. The bears were in high spirits. Quota tions for nearly every stock on the list show a decline.

Tin highest bid for the New York Central at the close was Viyi per cent, and that was for delivery on a contract maturing. Mr. Corn i 1. g the President of this company, has been in the city the past day or two, and he states officially that there will be no change, for the present at all events, in the late transfer orders. The II linois Central Railroad Company have culled for a further instalment of five dollars per share upon " the stock upon which fifteen dollars-is now paid, payable on the 1st Inst. Intorest on the stock for the your ending July, 3866, will be paid on the 1st of November. Holder of stock on which fifteen dollars per share have been paid will receive eighty six cents per share, they first paying the instalment called as above. The holders of stock on which twenty dollars per share have been paid will re ceive one dollar and forty cents per share. It is semi officially stated that the gross earnings of t h? ? Galena and Chicago Railroad Company for September, will range between #'260,000 and $276,000. When It is recollected that there were live Sundays in September, and that this company earnod at the rate of $10,000 pp. day, it will be seen that the receipts for that month were by this circumstance reduced to tliat extent. The fact of a road, with a capital of ouly six millions of dollars, earn ing $276,000 in twenty-five working days, Is unprec? dented in this country. At the same rate, New York Central should ha\u earned in the name time $1,800, 00o at least. The Assistant Treasurer reports to-day ns follows:?

Thi? floating debt, with all Its additions for expenditures on construction account during the present, and perhaps another year, will lie funded by another Issue 0! bonds It may he difficult for stockholders to believe that this company has at this moment a floating debt of one million of dollars. When we see such a det.t accumulated in such a short time after the last issue of bonds, stockholders must begin to ap^re bend a collapse that will endanger their dividends. , fy are In greater danger than any of them Imagine. We have no idea that the Central will suddenly suspend as the Erie did, but It must soon make another reduction In the rate. In February, 1864, the semi annual dividend was five per cent. In August the rate was four per cent, and that was not paid until January, 1866. The p-vy. menu since have heen four percent, and that rate can .ot continue long. The company do not earn it.

Now let na see what the actual reeult in of the fiscal year which closed on the 30th September, 1866:? Nrw York Ckntrai Rajijuud? 1855. Gross earnings year ending Sept. 30. 1856, 11 months, official, September estimated. .... .$6,360,000 Running expenses 58 per cent. . ... Tienreciation fay 1 per cent on capitul 240,000 In? on debt $11,600^000 at 6 per cent. 600,000 ^.ngTnd lk P- cv"n $MW.OOO 111,176 Net earnings 81,409,185 Huh is equal to a fraction less than six per cent on the capital ($24,000,000) of the company. The rate for run ning expenses we have put down at two per cent less than the average in Ibe State reported by the State En gineer. The gro?B earnings of the New York Central last year wero only equal to $1 78 per mile, and the !-tate Engineer says that it cost the railroads of this State last year an average of one dollar per mile to ruu their loco motives. At this rate the Central only earned 78 cents per mile. It therefore follows that the current expenses were 68 per cent of the gross earning". In 1853 the company reported its expenses at 48* per cent, in 1854 at 62 per cent, and in 1865 they will not be less than 58 per cent. The Increase in gross earnings In 1855 over i 854 has not been more than five per cent, so that the actual net earnings will be considerably less. The net earnings of this company have replied tholr cul minating point. Tho gross income may from year to year show a slight increase, but the company have to do a great deal more work now for tho same amount of money, and extra expenses will more than abi-orb the increase in receipts. Tho competition the Central has, during the past year, been carrying on with the Erie, must have run its expenses up nearer to its receipts than ever before. Apart from this local con petition, we have a line through New Jersoy nearly com pleted, via which it is one hundred miles nearer 1-ake Erie than by the Central route. The New Jersey Central read will, another season, be a formi'table competitor with the New York Central for the through travel. A earing of one hundred miles between this city and Cleve land will be made by tho New Jersey Central route, and the bulk of the through travel must naturally take that route, both for cheapness and expedition. This, ami several other causes, all operating against ths travel nsid traffic of the New York Central line, must compcl that com) any to enter still more earnestly Into competition, which, in the end, w.ill be fatal to it. The receipts of the Michigan Southern Railroad, in September, are reported at about $250,000 ; those of the Cleveland and I'ittsburg at $05,000, and those of the Cleveland and Toledo at $75,000. The Indiana State Auditor gives notice that the se:u rlties held in trust for the redemption of the circulating notes of the Plymouth Bank, at I'ly month ; State Stock Security Bank, at Newport ; Traders' Bank, at Tcrre Haute; Drovers' Bank, at Rome; Farmers' Bank, at Ster ling; Agricultural Bank, at Mount Sterling; and New York Stock Bank, at Vincennes? all of Indiana? will be sold at auction at the Merchants' Exchange, In this city, at noon, on the 29th in?t. Those securities consist of Indiana and Pennsylvania fives, and Virginia and Lou isiana sixes. Stock Exchange.
