Hew York, Wednesday, October 10, 1855. Tht News. The steamship Canada, from Liverpool, arrived at Halifax lastevening, with intelligence from Europe to the 29th ult. The news from the seat of war Is very interesting. Active operations had been re amed in the Crimea. On the 2 2d September the sJttes attacked the Rnasian infantry, and the latter Mtreated to the heights over Ruflta. The allies had tended 20,000 men at Eupatoria, and had 30,000 on Ibe Russian flank The Russians were fortifying m tbe north part of Sebastopol, and erectiug new batteries. Sebastopol isto be razed, and tbe basins Ailed up. The Russian loss in the recent assau'.t is stated to have been eighteen thousand mon. Prom Asia we learn that the garrison at Hare were in great want, and were eating horse flesh. Tjc Rus. mans had abandoned Erzeroura, and were at Mala gulemin. The Baltic fleet will winter at Kiel. In Liverpool cotton had declined id. No change had taken place in breadstuff's. Consols were at 88 7-16ths for account, and 88 i for money. Tbe market for breadstuff's still continued firm, though with seme reduction in the aggregate amount of sales. Common and modium grades of floor, on which the purchases have chiefly run, on foreign aocount, were from 12Jc. a 25c. per barrel higher, while high grades of extra, though firm, did not improve in a corresponding ratio. Prime qualities of wheat, in sound shipping order, were scarce and higher, and in some cases commanded extreme prices, while inferior to good ordinary lots were lets animated, and closed without the advance claimcd for higher grades. The sales footed up between 75 ,000 and 80,000 bushels, to arrive and on the spot. The highest figure obtained was for -1 ,000 bushels extra Canadian white, at $2 30, and the highest price Tor a lot of prime Southern white waj $2 25, while inferior parcels of white ruled con siderably below these figures. Fair to prime Southern red sold at $1 00 a $2 05, and prime Western white at $2 20. Corn was bet ter, and closed at 90c. a 91c. for good sound Western mixed. Pork wo<j lower, with sales #f new mess at 321 75 a $22 25. A sale of 337 bbls. refined sugars were made by auction, the particu lars of which ere given in another column. A ?ar?o of 3,000 baps lUo coffee, per Reindeer, was sold on private terms. There was a new phase manifested in the ltcmp market. It seciu-> that the article at St. Ix>uis had become scarce, and re ceipts being very light, prices had advanced to $160 for dew rotted, and $212 for dressed, which j caused holders here to withdraw from the market and wait for higher prices. Private telegraphic despatches have cted an occurrence of frost at Macon aud several other points in the cotton region ?f the South, but the season being so far advanced Utile apprehensions arc felt from its advent. The tales to-day amounted to 1,500 bales, the market ?losing steady. Freights, though less active, were without change in quotations. Though the sales of wheat and flour were unexpectedly large during the past three days, yet we are led to believe, and are sustained in that belief by sound business men in the trade, that the aggre. gate sales have been largely exaggerated in some quarters, and an imposing array of figures displayed, which must in part have probably resulted from con jecture. Allowing for all reasonable discrepancies the sales of wheat on Saturday and .Monday last amounted, probably, to about 300,000 bushels, on the spot and to arrive, one broker on Saturday hav ing purchased about 100,000 bushels on foreign ac count, and large lots also on Monday and Tuesday? thus fixing t'ue probable amount of sales in the three day at about 400,000 bushels, which, at an average cost of $2 per bushel, would make | $800,000? to which, if the flour bought were added, it would swell the amount to over ?1 ,000 000 in the three days referred to, which ex ceeds any similar amount of sales within so brief a pericd for many years past. To the above estimate, if we add the sales of com, cotton and other agri cultural products in the same period, 'heir total value would not probably vary mrch from betw^n ?1,500,000 and * 2, 000 ,000. For whom or Oil whose accouut have tliei-e large purchases been made? For '??dividual*, or for government ? We believe in part tor both, but chiefly 1 r tie latter. We incidentally learned that Messrs. C.riunell, Mintum & Co. had given out, to their broker, large orders for the p ir chase of both wheat and tlour, which had been duly ?Mcnted for and on account of the English govern ment. A portion of the orders (Hied lor France were supposed t<> have teen nlso on account of the French government. It was reported that most of the pur eha??.j made on F.nglish account were to go into store, and w>re not taken with the view of immediate -Mjm. considerable amount of the purchases mi'dc &" nd'.vid iat" were on account of (?reck hoTi*o?. ttfl < n behalf of orders from Germany. Yesterday ! . ii.u ? > ? " packet day fortlie \merica to sail i'r0't> F >*on, it is probable that ad', ices were forwarded ;?"? the eflect that the bulk of the orders by the PocjC.' had I e n filled, and hence until the arrival of iater foreign new*, with letters, Ac., we may expect s?i;ne less excitement in breadstuff's. The Fr anvli war steamer ar.'so Orondeur, com manded by lieutenant Oallet, of the Imperial Navy, arrived at this pwt from Gaudaloape, via Baltimore, on Monday night. She bears a commission author izing the pnrchofe and shipment of a number of horses for the use of the mounted grni-d'arme of Oaudnloupe, as tlic native animals are interior both in stature and "tren#th for military parpoies. T'ue Orondonr bas four thirty ponnder g'ins and a crew of eighty bands. She is twenty-five years old, and is one of the tlnA vessels which was ever ured as a steamer by the Ficnch government. Her officers are very gentlemanly men, and recently, at Guadaloupe, nobly aidodthe Amcican bark Hi dalgo when in much dan^w. The United States flag was hoisted on board the Orondeur at one o'clock yesterday afternoon, sainted with twon ?ty-one guns, which were duly replied to from Oi> vtrnor's Island. The Grandeur will remain in our wirlers about four weeks. One of her officers (M. Ron*), quite a young man, is decorated with the cross -of tbe legion of honor, he having lost his rinht arm in the service of France. There was a gathering of the republican or Pres ton King Tinrty at the Tsl^rna. le last niwht. some twelve taiudred persons were in attendance. The resolution* pe^ed at the Syracuse Convention wen endorsed, am. the nominees of that body adopted Speeches were <.nade by Senator Wilson, of Ma?*A <hnsett?, Hon Mi 9av.ue.and others. A full report is given fn our papw to-day. Despatches from Washington ?tate that there is a large delegation of Mexl^jn?, who were associated With Santa Anna, at prosoqt In that city, and that it is rumored Panta Anna himself has been | there for several d?yfc As wo cw see no reason I why Santa Anna shonl4 keep hia movei ate nto in this cctffltry secret, we are induced to donfal the rumor. Our deapatch from Syracuse states tha t there ia little prwpect of the two conventions, (the liquor Jealcrs and the constitutionalists,) which meet in that city to-day , being largely attended. It is be lieved that Col. French has received answers from mot* of the nominees in answer to hit circular, but keeps his own counsel. Our returns from the elections in Pennsylvania and Ohio yW.erday are exceedingly meagre and unreliable. Letters fr*m Norfolk, dated the 6th inst., received in Baltimo.*;, report the continued abatement of the yellow fevtr, there being only an occasional death and but Taw new cases. In Portsmouth, there had been eleven cases end four deaths during the previ ous thrse days. Hon. Samuel I>. Hubbard, Postmaster General un der Mr. Fillmore, and ex-meinbcr of Congress, died at bis residence, in Middletown, Conn., on Monday] evening. Gen. Peter Sarpy, for many years a trader among the Omaha Indians, in Nebraska Territory, has just concluded an important treaty with the Indian Bu reau at Washington. In the Board of Ten Governors yesterday Go vernor Draper called attention to the gross fraud perpetrated by contractors on the laborers em ployed on Bl&ckwell's Island. It appears that the city is charged $1 87J for each laborer employed on the island, while the contractor really pays but $1 25, thus securing to himself Ave shillings per day on each man. Committee on Markets of the Board of Alder men, in session yesterday, after an examination of the subject, announced their intention to report against the petition of the 6th and 71st regiments, N. Y. P. M., for the exclusive use of the rooms over Essex Market, but to recommend that the same be used as a general drill room for the First Divi sion. Yesterday morning a Are broke ont in the paper hanging manufactory of Thomas Fayc & Co., No. 152 West Twenty-ninth street; the buiiding and its contents were destroyed. A full account of the affair will be found in another column. We publish to-day the investigation of the Coro ner in the case of Mrs. Abby E. Peace, who died un der mysterious circumstances, at the house of Dr. Dupnt, in South Second street, Williamsburg. The investigation is not yet concluded, but -will be con tinued to-morrow. Indictments of City OAclaU. There can be 110 doubt bat the public has i received with very groat satisfaction the news I tbat several municipal otlicers have been in dicted for corruption and malfeasance. Not i that any one of the accused bore a particular ly bad reputation, or that the dozen or so who have been singled out of the mass by the Grand Juries were notoriously profligate, or conspicu ously depraved among their fellows. The public has drawn no distinctions either in their favor or against them. It being generally un derstood and believed that the otlicers of the city government, or many of them, were cor rupt, no one has stopped to inquire whether these were the worst; they have been made to serve as scape goats for the rest, and it is abundantly manifest that if they should be condemned with the utmost rigor of the law, ibe public verdict would be: served them right. So much for the fruits of keeping bad com pany. There are officers of the federal govern ment concerning whom malice itself has never uttered a calumny; yet so utterly corrupt is the administration and so well does the coun try know it, that if these very m^n were in dicted and brought to trial, public opinion 1 would be against them. It is the same with I the city government of the city of New York. I The accused had better be prepared with a full and unquestionable defence. That it is I hard for some of them, there can be no doubt, and grave questions may arise with regard to the regularity of the proceedings by which their indictments have been effected. The people are pretty sure to take a broad view ? omitting personal considerations and matters of detail: on the strength of the prospect of a clarified atmosphere and a purified administra tion, they will be ready to overlook individual cases of hardship. At the ?amc" time, conscientious men cannot help rogreiting that so desirable a result should be attained by means which no dispas sionate thinker can wholly approve. The in dictments against the accused officials were obtained on cxpurie evidence, taken before a sort of star chamber commission called a (ivand Jury. That that body was not infalli ble is proved by the nolle prosequi entered on Monday in the case of Councilman Cooper; in v. hose case the indictment rested on the evi dence of a witness who swore one thing on? day and the contrary the next. That an in dictment, whether followed or not by a con viction, involves a serious loss of character, and in some cases inflicts an irreparable injury on the party indicted, is still more obvious. Had Councilman Cooper been allowed to cross examine the witness on whose testimony he was indicted, or had he been suffered 'o adduce ?evidence in rebuttal, it is probable that ho would, never have been brought before the public as an offender against the laws. We hear of other cases, wherein the indictments have been obtained on evidence which no ex perienced lawyer would consider adequate to sustain a civil suit. There is here matter for serious reflection. That the city official* l>ear a bad name is no reason why innocent in dividuals?such as Councilman Cooper must be presumed to be ? should be defamed, and held up to public scorn without good cause. If it be necessary ? and all will agree that it is ? to purge the municipal body of corrupt members, some mode must be invented for doing so without exposing blameles? men to ir retrievable injury. We must try to get rid Of the strr chamber system. Grand Juries have their merits, as an in-titution. no doubt ; but in eaf'11? of this kind, the mischief they may be made to work if far more readily de tected. When an irresponsible body composed of naval officers sat in judgment 011 the United States navy, and suspended, furloughed. or trot rid of some two hundred officers, on erpirte evi dence. and without hearing one of th" ac cused?the Secretary of th'' N.ivy contenting himself with sanctioning proceedings which he admitted he did no: approve th ? public judgment was that the thing was wronir, and that the officers removed from aotivc service ?koto gratuitously and rhamefully wrongel. J? is f ven so with the Grand Juries. Th- y hrar 0 part of the evidence in a ca-e, on one M b- only : they give the accused no chance of demolishing his assailants ; they sit with closed doors, which shut out the liyht of public opi nion. and the dread of responsibility ; and in this way they give birth to a public impeach ment of character which clcavcs to a man through life, and whi ?h no acquittal, however honorable, can wholly efface. It ?n<>ms that such a method of getting rid of corruption is scarcely less objectionable than the vice it is deigned to cure. I Litshust SekSitions ? Extraordin' i rt Books I Cowva.? Slncc the appearance of the brochure I in relation to the achievements in love, war and diplomacy of the Chevalier Wikoff, there ban been <juite a lull in the world of ''sensa tion" books. We are anxiously awaiting the appearance of several volumes which were pro mised during last spring and summer. As we do not desire that the world shall lose the pi quant revelations which it has been promised, wc ttke occasion to inquire for the book pro mised by Mr. Soull, late;Minister to Spain, and now a private citizen of New Orleans. Mr. Scald promised that he would write the whole history of his Cuban negotiations, and give some remarkable revelations concerning our Premier, Mr. Marcy. We want Mr. SouWs book at onoe ; because Mr. Marcy is, or thinks he is, a prominent candidate for the succes sion, and is now hard at work endeavoring to whip the unterrified democracy into his traces, so that things will be all right at the Cincin nati Convention next June. Mr. Soufc thinks he has cause to complain of the manner in which Marcy treated him. Mr. Soul6 is the par ticular pet ?f that section of the democracy who go in for getting Cuba by any means ? fair or foul? and they are particularly anxious to find out how the impetuous Minister was check mated and choked off by the wily old Secre tary. Let us hear from Mr. Soule, or his pub lisher, at once. While we are talking about Cuba wo may mention that Mr. John S. Thrasher has been for some time preparing a volume, which is to be a complete history of that island, with an expose of its relations towards England, Franse, Spain, the United States and other Powers. Mr. Thrasher, although a native of the United Stales, resided in Cuba during many years, lie was editor of Jthc Faro Industrie, and is supposed to know more about Cuba than any other man who is in a condition to write or sjfcak freely on the subject. Wc expect that Mr. Thrasher's developements in relation to soeieiy and di plomacy in Cuba will be quite interesting, and will form an admirable companion volume to Mr. SouK's revelations concerning Cuban af fairs, as viewed through a European te'escope. One will tell us all about the " ever faithful island'' as it is, and the other will give us the ideas ot the Cabinets of Madrid, London, Paris, Vienna and Washington, upon its position, po licy and destiny. Hurry up, Mr. Thrasher. So much for Cuba and politics. Now let us turn to a lighter theme. Next in importance to the revelations of the Chevaliers Soule and Thrasher we must place the experiences and confessions of the Chevalier Max Maretzek. conductor of the orchestra at the Academy of Music, in Fourteenth street, and the real, genu ine, original Jacobs among the directors of that intereetiog institution? the pure and unde filed Italian Opera in the United States. 3fr. Maretzek put forth the programme of his book several months since, and then retired to the classic shades of Suitcn Island, there to indite his experiences, confessions and criticisms upon the artists, managers, stockholders and critics who have arranged matters in relation to the Opera, at Astor place, Castle Garden, Niblo's Garden and the Academy of Music, during the seven years that the American pub lic has been favored with his society. Things have changed somewhat since Mr. Ma retzek put forth this announcement; but we do not see any good reason why we nbould not have the book. Who is the publisher, and when will it appear? As there is nothing going on at the Academy to occupy a very great deal of the conductor's tim:>, we think that he can find plenty of leisure to answer these important questions. At any rate, the public is anxious about it, and we do not like to lose anything uliich is likely to be good. Therefore, we trust soon to announce that we have received advance copies of the three greatest books of the day, to wit : Soute on Marcy, Thrasher on Cuba, and Maretzek ou the Opera. The last named gentleman's confes sions will create an immense sensation in the fashionable parlors on the avenues? Sony's criticises on the Premier will be of great, in. terest to all the divisions of the great demo cratic party? bard shells, half shells, soft shells, and people without any sheila at all ; while Thrasher's Cuba will absorb the attention of all the friends ol Cuba, including the Juuta, Captain lljnders and General Quitman. Wc must have all these books immediately. Wak ? up, gentlemen. Strike while the iron is hot. Iiik Danish Sousd Dies? Fam.imj Acain ? The Providence Jourrwl (with an air | of official authority) inform* us that " m- a*u.> are in progress by the United States govern ment, which will put to rest all fears of an> collision with Denmark, growing out of our refusal to submit longer to the Soun] dues. A messenger is on the way, if not already in Denmark, charged with important despatches to our representative at Copenhagen, directing him to enter into negotiations, anew, in regard to these taxes. Of course, nothing is knowi as to the instruct! _>ns he takes to the Un ted States Charge des A flairs there, i t is fcUiB Jcu * however, to state that our government ha? no de-ire to force a lricndly government, situated as Denmark is at the present time, into any baMy measures which may compel her to ap I peai to either of the present belligerent ua lions for the defence of a *y-tem of taxation on her commerce, which is her chief source oi revenue."' We breathe again. The war is postponed. Our minister is to re-open the negotiations up on the subject, which is equivalent to a treaty of peace. Another triumph of Marcy over For ney and the Kitchen Cabinet. Wh U a dead drag has this old fogy been to the war policy of Mr. Pierce and his Kitchen! Now for an other sensation on the Cuba question. PlU:sn>KNT FjEBCE A5D THE S'.VAMl' LaXD Gra.nts. ? We transfer to our colurrns to-day. from the Tribvnr, the letter of n Mr. William II. Tnjlor (who if. we presume, a respec'aole aiul responsible man) tou bing the policy of Mr. President l'lerce In reference to tb'.awaaop lands of the State of Missouri. According to Mr. Titylor's account, the President of the United State who is sworn to w the laws faithfully 'xecuted, has deliberately disre garded the act of Congress upon these .Missouri swamp lands. 1hi*i* a most extraordinary disclosure, "om ing *o 'oon as It docs after the dismissal of Governor Reeder, of Kansas, >>ecaus<> of his alleged speculations in the lands of the half treed lr.dians of that Territory. If it be true that our President has overstepped the act of Congress and has perfected the transfer to Missouri of large bodies of land? as swamp lands, which we perfectly dry and above the reach of the law, he is ae clearly subject to impeachment as Reeder himself, even had the latter been found guilty of the chargc upon which be -was officially dismissed. Will not the Cabinet organ condescend to explain this Mis souri swamp land operation ? We should like to heir from Gen. Cushing upon the subject. The Carnival op tub Politicians.? Our po liticians of the city and county of Hew Y?rk, (to say nothing of the rural districts) artfnow in the mid<?i of an unprecedented cartii*al. The numerous nocturnal city and ceunty con ventions and caucuses, and meetings ?of demo cratic soft shells, hard shells and half shells, of black republicans, and whites and reds, of United Americans, Allen Know Nothings, temperance men, liquor dealers, resurrection whigo, workingmon, city reformers, anil what not, promise to give us the most amusing, rat tling, confused, exciting and ridiculous city and county election ever witnessed on this island since its first settlement by the Dutch. The canvass, meantime, has received a vast addition of point, pungency and pepper from the pending indictments, prosecutions, and so forth, against certain unfortunates of our city fathers, and from the terrible onslaught of Alderman llerrick against Mayor Wood. Tak ing all these things together, the approaching election admonishes us of Hotspur's observa tion to his anxious wife : "We shall have crack ed crowns and bloody noses, my darling;" and it is with this apprehension that wc beseech all our rival candidates, parties and factions for the public plunder, to cultivate towards each other the virtues of mutual forbearance, concession and christian charity. Thus we shall achieve a glorious reform in the business of election day, though we may gain nothing in its results. Commodore Stewart and tub Naval Board. ? We publish, this morning, an im portant document ? the protest oi the senior officer of the Navy against the action of a Naval Examining Board, of which ho was the presiding officer. This is a regular bomb-shell for the administration, as the powers at Wash ington have endeavored to create the impres sion that Commodore Stewart was in favor of the proceedings of the late Board, and that he desir ed to be retired as an example. By tho able do cument which we publish to-day, it will be seen that the Commodore objected to the proceedings in toto. and for very good reasons. The salient point which he takes is, that every man who Is accused of crime or misdemeanor is entitled to a public trial and to be coafronted with hisa> cusers. We need not tell our readers that this point is made perfectly impregnable by law and justice. By the exigencies of their profe* sioD, officers of the navy are removed from many of the responsibilities of civil life, but that ip no reason why they should be denied the rights which aro common to every citizen. We have no doubt that Commodore Stewart's protest will be duly considered by Congros. Where is toe Prince? ? Tho St. Lawrcnce Democrat (administration soft shell) has gone over, bag and baggage, to the Seward and Treston King black republican abolition >eagu% Was not Prince John Van Buren appointed to sump this same county of St. Lawrence, for the Syracuse soft shell ticket and platform, such as tt?y are ?

The excitement creat ed among our operators in breadstuff's and provisions, by ilie last startling news from Eu rope. still continues, and the prices of wheat and flour are still upward, with preparations for still larger shipments to Liverpool and Havre.

Antral ol UM Preach Steamer Orradcw BEPCRIPTION OV TBI VESSEL ? OBJECT OF HIB VISIT? SALUTE OF THE AKKRICAN FLAG ? A PLEASING INCIDENT IN HER HISTOKT. The French war steamer Grondeur, commudM by l.ieutenant Gullet, of the Imperial Navy, arrived in this port at nine o'olock Monti*/ evening from B'llt imore, charged with a commission for the purchase and ship ment of tbirlp-five horse*, fur the use of the mounted gtns a' arm ft of the Colony of Guadaloup*. The Gron deur is a French steam nvito, and her hull is now about twenty live yearn old. v be is one of the tir>t steam ves sels which was ever used in France, and, looked at ia thig light alone, is an object ot interest. The Grondeur is a steamer of ICO horse power, having side wheels. She U manned by a crew of eighty men, and mounts four guas, erch of a thirty-pound calibre. When visited by our reporters yesterday, the men wero all at their posts, with the officers busily engaged in or deriog and executing the different duties of the day, as well as seeing to the cleaning up ot the vessel, whlili was rendered necessary by her voyage. Our reporters, who were received with much gentleman ly courtesy, immediately observed the ease and freedom of interceurse which i revailed on board, anil the conse quent promptness wltli which every duty was performed, a fact which fully explains the efficiency of each arm of the French service. On board the Grondnur tbe accom modations for persons serving in the vessel are very good* The tollowing is a LIST OF II Ell OFFICERS. Commander Lieutenant Gallet. First Midshipman M. Coutur!*. Second " M. Bores?. Captain's Clerk M. Boux. Surgeon M. Saly. M. Roux Is quite a your.g man, but has already seen some service, having bad his right arm amputated la consequence of a severe wound which he received in the action at Mogador. For his conduct on that occasion ha was decorated with the cross of a Chevalier of the I^egion of Honor, which he now wears. On board the Grondeur, in addition to her of ficers, are - the gentlemen composing the Commis sion to which has been entrusted the task of selecting and purchaidng tin horses. The Commissioner* are M. Boucher, Under Commissary of the F .nch Navy and President of the Commission ; M. Solville, e erof the gens d'arm<s ofGuadaloupe, and M. Michelon, y^vi lnary Surgeon. The Grondeur will remain in our harbor for one month, duriqg which time it is liopcd her officers will be able sa tisfactorily to execute their orders. At one o'clock, yesterday afternoon, during the visit of our reporters, -Me utcnant Gallet ordered the flag of the United States to be run up to the mast head of the Grondeur, where, as it gradually unfolded to the breeze, it was d jly saluted by a dicchurge of twenty-one guns, which were immediately replied to from the guns of Castle William, at Governor's Island. In connection with thi arrival in our waters of th? Grondeur, the following communication from the United States Vice Consul at I'oitt-a-Pitre, Guadaloupe, compli mentary to the commander and officers of that vessel, is very appropriate. We clip it out of tho Jouriw.l ^bninvr cial <j> I'oint-a-Pitrc. ? TO TUB KDITOR 0> TUB COJ.-HXRffAI'? In n.j own nr.me, as well as In that of Captain Nelson Ingalls. of the American iirig Hidalgo, from Machia, I beg yon will be kind enough to ojien the columifeof your jour nal to the expiexsion of our gratitude lor the succors which were afforded to that vessel during the late storm of tho '.'5th Inat. In the first place. I would cite Commandos- Gallet, of the steamer le Grondeur, whose courageous Initiative had saved the vessel at tho moment when to all appcarance it was Inevitably lost. It is not the first time that this in telligent. officer has rendered important sorvi'cs to oar cor.imerce. lie gave us, on tho ?Mb, anew proof r>f his solicitude for all tho-e menaced by danger, no matter what iheir nationality wr.y be. Such men as Commander Callct do honor to the service to which they belong. ***???* Accept, sir. the as uiraure of tny consideration, N. NKSTY, Vi:e Consul of the U. S. of America. rrisr-A-FiTRE, August S7, 1855. As the Grondeur *IU remain in port some weeks, we are sure that our merchants wi'l takemeasurcs during her stay, to evinco to Capta'H Gallet and hii officers, their appreciation of the gallant and humane di.-positions the; have exhibited.
