THE IEWS FROM EUROPE. TIB IAJLS BY THE UWON AND CANADA. TKE DETAILS OF THE FILL OF 6EBA8TOPOL. THE HARVEST IN FRANCE, 1c., Ac., Ac. Th" sb^pshiD Union, Captain Adams, arrived at this port at hairpiinj o'clock yesterday afternoon. She left Hat re and Southampton on the 26th ult. the Canada arrived at Boston at half-past 0 o'clock yesterday morning. She left Liverpool on the 29th ult. Our letters and papers by thews steamers have been re ached, and we are literally overwhelmed with interesting Intelligence of all sorts from all parts of Europe. We give seme additional details relative tr the fall of Sebas topot?to give ail would require the space of fifty Htauuw. We are compelled to leave out Marshal Helisslur's and fleneral Mel's splendid despatches, describing the great assault. It is stated in a letter from St. 1'etersburg, dated the 11th ult.:?" We have sud'ered horrible loss. General Tuhsm.IT Is dead. Generals Chruletf, Martineau, Lurof and Wcjebk. fr are severely wonnded, and Kollen is tuken prisoner." It is further reported at Varna that Genera Oaten-h'ackcn had committed snicide. In speaking of the fall of Sebastopol and the admission of Turkey into the European system, the London Times says" Th'- Christian subjets of the Porte must therefore rstijjn themselves to the supri-macy of the Western Powers." The last intelligence from the Hirmun Empire announces that an extraordinary embassy was on the point of set ting out lor France, being the first that the Emperor of Biimah ever sent to any power in the world. Gon. d'Or goni is to be at its head. The Ixtndon (Hole, of September 28th, says:? M. I'acheco, Minister of Mexico in I'aris, has written to the Pays to say tliat it is an error to suppose, as Home ?etrapaper writers have done, that the recent revolu Uenary movements in that country prepare the way for its annexation to the United States. "Whatovor may be the charges thut tuke place in Mexico," ho declares, ?they win always be of a national character; no one thuiks of annexation to the United States, and no party too such a purpo>e has ever existed." One of the Madrid letters, of tbo 21ct of September, contains tbo following paragraph, which was published In the London (Hole. It may be news to Mr. Soule, now busily engaged In preparing his famous book for the pub lisher :? Ti e government has received intelligence this morning that M. 1 lerre soule, who made himself so extremely ob noxious here when he represented the American republic at the Court of Madrid, has met with a violent and dread ful death. M. Soule has been shot. His family had been kept us hostages in the town of Zuluf, and after tho place bad Is en ult/v-ked l.y Santa Cruz, this fearful act of re tributive justice wsh accomplished. THE FALL OF SEBASTOPOL. The Details or the Battle of September 8. ?PBN1NU OF THE UltKAT AND FINAL BOMBARDMENT? FIRBT KIKE AMONOST THE RUSSIAN SHIPS. [Corro. pundence of tho London limes.] Si;u.\SToroi., Sept. 10,1855. Tlio contest on which tho eyes of Ku.-opo Lavo been turned so long ij nearly decided?tho event on which the hopes of ho man/ mighty empires depondel is all hat determined, hebustopol is in tlaiuosl fhe Hoot, tho ob ject of so much diplomatic controversy, and of so many Woody struggles, has disappeared in the Jeop. Ono more gieatnetol cirnaao has lc-en added to tho tremendous, hut glorious tiagedy, of which the whole world, troin the moht olviliced nitlinns down to tliemo- t barbirous hordes ?1 the, has been the anxious and ex Rod audience. ?Amid shouts of vie . ry and cries of despair?in frantic rejoicing and passionate sorrow?a pall of black smoko, atrcaked by the lioiy flashings of exploded fortresses, descends upon tho stage, on which has been depicted jo many varied traits of human misery and of human great ness, such high endurance snd calm coarago, such lit feenors and weakness?acro s which have stalled charac ters which history nuiy develope as largely as the strug gle in which they weie engaged, and swell to gigmtesque proportions, cr whlcu she may dwarf into the pettiest dimensions, as unworthy of tho part they played. The last and decisive was, as 'he worll I know s ever so long ago, b-guu on the morning of Wednes day September 5. hy the French, against the RussUu right, consisting of the Quarantine lU'terlc*, the Bis tion Cent rale, and tlie UaHtloa du Mil', with greit vigor an<l ellect, and at night began a devastating bum fcarr trout, tn which all tho allied ba'terie* jaino I A frt gaie was fired by a French . hell and sunk at night. Oa the morning of the hill tho Kngllsli and French together opened the ru.-inonade, between which tfie Russian but teiies were almost brokeu to pieces, end which they did not dare to answer. In the evening tho Imiubardtuon was renewed and kept up all night; a Are appeared behind tho i'.edun, and the enemy seemed by the!?? ?ocetant signalling to be in much tineasino-'j It wai ' observed that great quantities of forage were be'nr ocnt across fhe bridge front the north to tlie south gldo, *1'hough there were no cavalry in the litter, ?n ihc 7tli the ctmouad" was continued in salvoes, as befoie. and it was remarked that the town began to show in a mo-t unmistakable manner the terrible energy of the nightly bombardment. Ne irly ciery bouse within range was split and in ruins. The bridge between the north and the aiuth ido wus much crowded all day with men and carts passlug to and fro, and Urge Convoys were rten entering and .caving the town at the uonh ?Inc. Tosv.uds evening the head of tho great dockyard ah* ?ars, so long a pr. mirent oliject from our batteries, nought fiie, and burnt fiercely in the high wind, which was raging u 11 day. A two decker was set on (Ire by the French shells, and was destroyed, and a steamer was bui-ily employed towing n Urge dismasted frigate to the dockyard, out of range. In the middle of tlio day there was a council of Generals, and at 2 n'cl ick it became generally known that tlrti allies would assault the place ot noon on the 8th, offer a vigorous cannonade and Uorn bfctdn.en-,. The lour was well ..elected, as it was certain I tbat the Russians are accustomed to indulge in a siesta about that ilme. In the course of tho night there was au explosion behind tho Redan. *HK DAT OK ASSAULT?APPEARANCE OF THE ALLIED COMMANDKIU AND Til F.IK TROOPS. On September 8, tlie weather changed suddenly. This aanrniog it became bitterly cold. A biting wind right from the north side of Sebastopol blew Intolerable clru Is of harsh dust into our tares, fhe suu was obscured; the oky was of a leaden wintcry gray. Karl/ in the morning a sir. r.g liorce of cavalry, under the command of tkil inel Hodge,"%an moved up to tlio tront, and formed a cliain of sentries in froDt of fat heart's hill and all along our lines. Hope ison was allowed to pass this line, unless h? was a stall < llicer or v.j . provided with a pass. Another line of sentries in th? rear of them was intd'ubal to stop ?traggicrs and Idlers from Ralaklava, an 1 the object in view was pro ha My to prevent tho Russians gathering any Intimation of our attack f om the uuu.oal accurnulatl in of people on the lo k-out liills. lelissier during the night collectei about SO,OOP men in and about the Mnmelon, to form the storm aohrmns fbr the Millhif and Little Redan, and to Cotlrte the ncce-saiy rc.orve*. The French were rein reed by 6,000 t-ardinions, who rairched up from the Tcheinaya last niglit. It wns arranged that the French were to attack the MalakofT at noon, and, us soon ns their attack te, an. ilia' we were to assault tho Re'an. It was. aa I havo aid, a hitter cold day. aod a strange* wojll have been astonished at tho aspect of the British gene rals as they vlevcd the assault. The Commaadcr-ln Chief, Genenvl Simpson, at In tho trenches with his nose and eyes just lacing the cold and dust, and his cloak drawn up over his h? art, to protect him aghin?t both. General Jones wore a red nightcap, and rechtiort on his litter, and Mr Richard Airey, the Quartermaster-General, hart a white pocket luuidkcrcliief tied over Ills cap :tud ears, which detracted somewhut from a martial an t bel Mgerent nspect. The Ihike of Newcastle wa? stationed at Gathcart's hill in tie early part of tlie day, and niter warrts moved off to the right to the plcket-houso look out over the Woronioff road. All the amateurs and Ira veiling gentlemen, who rather abound here just now, were in a state of great excitement, ami dotted tlie plain hi eccentric attire?which recalled one's old memories of Go wee, and yachting and sea bathing?were engaged in a aeries of sutitle manutuv res to turn the tlank of uawary ?entries, nnd to got to the front, nnd their success wan most creditable to their enterprise and ingenuity. RAPID AND SPLENDID ASSAULT OF TtlE FRENCH A few minutes before 12 o'clock the French, like a ?warm of bees, Issued forth from their trenches close to the doomed Slalakoff, swarmed up Its face, and were through i<s emirasuree In tho twinkling of an eye. They crossed the seven metres of ground which separated them from the enemy at a few hounds?they drifted as lightly i Bd quickly as autumn leaves before the wind, battalion Iter battalion, into the embrasures, and In a minute or wo after the head of their column issued frotn the ditch the tricolor was floating over the Kornlloff bastion. Tho mnsketry was very [eehle at first?todeej, our allies took the Russians quite by surprise, and very few of the Utter were in the Maiakoff. but they soon recovered themselves, sad from 12 o'clock till past T In the evening the French hail iomeet and defeat the repcatol attempt* of the enemy to ?gain the work and the Little Redan, when,weary of the 'earful slaughter of his men, who tay in thousand* over the exterior of the works, the Mineovite general, despair ng of success, withdrew bits exhausted l?gion?, and pre ared, with admirable skill, to evacuate the place, m ENGLISH ATTACH ON THE REDAN?NUMBER OF MEN ENGAGED. Now It will be observe-1 that, where we attacked the Redan with two division* only, a portion of each bring virtually In reserve, and not engaged in the affair at all, the French made their assault on the Halakoff with four dWialon* of the second corps d'armec, the first and fourth divisions forming the stornlng columns, and the third and fifth being the support with reserves of 10.000 mem. The French had, probably, not leas than 80,000 men in the right attack on the 7th of September. The divisional orders for the .'d division were very much the s*me as those for the light division. The covering party const-t od of 100 men of the .'k| Ruff-, nnder Cnpt. John I^wes. who highly distinguished himself, and 100 of the Second Battalion of the Kifle Brigade, I believe under the e >m wand of poor Cantata Hammond. The scaling ladder party consisted of lso of the ltd Ruffs, under Cap lain Maode. who-e gaiiantf. was very conspicuous throughout the affair, In addition to the 100 of the 97th, ?Oder the gallant ami lamented Welsfttrd. Tlie part ?f the force of the Second divi-im, consisted of 2tt0 of the 3d Buffs, 300 of the list I Welsh.) 200 of the 02d and a werkingparty oflOOmenof the tl.t rhe rest of Wind ham's Brigade, consisting of the 4Tth *nd R??h, were in MMrve, tof thw wltfc Warren's Brigade of 4be same division, if which the 30th end 65th were called into ne kton, and sultored severely. Brigadier Shirley woe on hoard ship, but u noon an he lieurd of the assault, he re oolved to join his brigade, and ho accordingly caine up to camp that very morning. Colonel Unett, of the llHh regiment, wan the eenlor offleir in Brigadier Shirley's ab sence, and on him would buye devolved the duty of load ing the storming column of the l.ight Division had the Utter not returned. Colonel Duett, iguoranl of tho i Brigadier's intention to leue shipboard, hid to decide With Colonel Windham who should take precedence iu the attack. They tossed, and Cnlonel Unett won. He hsd it in his power to suy whether he would go lint or fellow Colonel Windham. He looked at tho shilling, turn ed it over, and said, ' My choice is made; I'll be the tlrst man into the Redan." THE ASSAULT WITH SCALING LADDERS? IT3 FAIL URE AND 1>KK\DFUL LO-S OF MEN. it was a few minutes after 12 o'clock noon, when our men left the tilth parallel. The musketry commenced at once, a lid in less than live minutes, duiiug which the troops had to pass over about 110 yards from the nearest approach to the parapet of the Redan, th-y had lost a ? large proportion of tnelr officers, aud were deprived of ! the aid of their leaders, with the exceptions I havo stated. The litiemen advanced admirably, but from their position they could not do much to reducn the flrn of the guns on the Hanks and below the re-entering angles. They crossed the abattis without difficulty; it was torn to pieces and destroyed by our sbot. and the rnon stopped over and through it with ea>c. The light division made straight for tho salient and projecting angle of the Redan, ami came to the ditch, which is hero about 15 feet deep. The party detailed for tho purpoe placed the ladders; but they wei e found to be too short. However, hod there been enough ot them, that would not have mattered much; but some hod been left behind in the hands of dead or wounded men, and others had been broken; so that, If one can credit the statements made by those who were present, there were not more than six or seven ladders at the sulicnt. Hie men. led by their officers, leuped into the ditch and scrambled up the other Hide, whence they got up the parapet almost without opposition; for the tew Russians who were in front ran back and got behind their traveisea and breastworks as soon as they saw our men on the top, and opened Ure upon them. lamentable as it no doubt Is, and incredible almost to thmewho know how the British soldier generally be haves before the enemy, the mep, when they got on tho parapet were Mixed by some strange infatuation, and ' began firing, instead of following their offloers, who now | began to fall last as they rushed on in front and tried to | stimulate their soldiers by their example. Notwithstand ing the pi pular prejudice to the contrary, most men stand tire inurb better than closing with an enemy. It Is difficult enough sometimes to got cavalry to charge if they can find any decent excuse to lay by thtir swords and take to pistol and carbine, with which lliey aro contort to pop away for iror, but when cover of any kind is near a', hand a trench-bred inlitnt ry man finds tho charms of the cartridge quite ir resist itd?. The small pajty of the 00th, much diminish ed. went on gulluntly towards the breastwork, but Jiuy were too w? ak to force it, and they had to retiro and get behind the traverses, where men of different regiments bad nlrt ady congregated, and were keeping up a brisk fire on the Russians, whose heads were just visible above the breastwork Mmultaneously vlth tho head of tho stoiming party of the l ight Division, Colonel Windham h.ol got in. ,de the iledan on their light, below the salient on the proper left face of the Uedan, but iu spite of all hU exer tions, could do little more thao tho gallant offi cers of tho BOth and 07tli regiments. The storming columns of tho Second Division, issuiug out of the tilth parallel, rushed up immediately after the I iglvt Division but when they came up close to tbe apex ! Brigneier Windham voiy judiciously brought tliem by a slight detour en the right ttank of the light Division, so | as to come a little down on the slope of the proper left face of the lfedan. The first embrasure to which they [ came was in Haines, but, moving on to the next, the inon leaped into tho ditch, and, with the aid or ladders and of each other's hands, scrambled up on tho other side, climbed the parapet, or poured in through tho embra sure which was undefended. Colonel Windham was the first or one of the very first men In on this side, and with liiin entered Daniel Mahoney, a great grenadier of the 41st, Killeany and Cornellis of tlio same regimen*. As Mahoney entered with a cheer, he was shot through the heed by a Russian ritlcman and fell dead ncioss Colonel Windham, and at the same mo ment Killeany and Oornollts were both wounded. As ihe ahum of an assault was spread the enemy caine rushing up from tire barracks in roar of tbe Redan, and laortlNa the force ami intensity of their fire, while our soldiers dropped fast and menu raged the Russians by their Immobility and tho weakness of their fusillade, from which the enemy were well protected, in vain tho officers, by voice and act, by example anil daring, tried to urgo our soldiers on. Thoy had an impression that the Reiun was alt mined, and that if they advanced thoy would all bo bl' wu up, but mmy of them acted as became the men of Alma aud Inkcrmaun, and, rushing to the front, were swept down by the enemy's fire. The ofilceiH fell on all sides, singled out for tho enemy's five by ibeir courage. The m?n of the dilloront regiments became mingled together iu inextricable confusion. Tho I llMh men did not care for the orders of the officers of the 88th, nor did the soldiers of the 113d hoed tho commands of an officer who did not belong to his regiment. The officers could not find their men?tho men had lost sight of i heir own officer*. All tbe brigadiers, save Colonel Windham, were wounded or rendered unfit for the guid ance of the attnek. The narrow neck of tho Halieot was too close to allow of any kind of formal! jn, and the uioro Ihe men crowded into it the move 'hey got out of order, ami the more lliey suffered fc .in the enemy's Are. This mise rable work la.-'cd for an hour, the Russian* were now In dens? masses behind the breastwork, aud Colonel Wind ham walked back agulu acrosi the open space to the left to make one more attempt to retrieve ihe day. The men on the parapet of the salient, who were firing at ibe Russians, sent their shut about him, snd the bitter, win were pouiing voiley after volley on ull points of the head of the work, likewise directed their muskets against liira. but he passed through this cross lire in safety, and gut within the inner parapet on tho left, tvbere the men were becoming thinner and thinner. A Russian officer now step; cd over the breastwork, and tore down a gabion with hla own hands; it was to make room for a field piece. Col. Windham exclaimed to several soldiers who were I firing over the parapet, "Well, as you are so fond of firing why don't you shoot that Russian*" They fired a Tidiey run missed him, and coon a'lor wards the field pit re began to play on the head of the salient with grapo. Colonel Windham saw thero was no time to ha lost. He had sent three officers for reinforcements, and above all, for men in formation and he now resolved 1o go to Gene ral CodrUgton himself. Seeing Captain CrOnlock, of the With, near him, busy in encouraging hi* men, and ex erting himself with great connive and energy to got thc.n | Into order, he said, '1 must go to tlio General for sup ports. Now miml, let it be known, in case 1 am killed, | why 1 went away." CONDUCT OK TI1E ALLIED TROOPS. [I rum the Furls Monitour, Sept. The capture of Sebastopol has caused the greatest joy in Kuglnnd us well as In France. In fact, it was just that, after having shared the dangers and the sacrifices ol this war, tlie iwo people should take unequal share in the glory of the triumph. Sinco Iho commencement of the str iiggle Franco and Fngtand, untte.l by an intimate community of views and efforts, have shown a sort of emulation iu providing each according to its resources the means ot assuring unci ess. If France was aide to send out more soldiers, England provided a greater num ber ef ships, and, nevertheless, sent successively to the Crimea 80,rot) troops, collected from all points of her im mune empire. Thanks to the prodigious naval armament of the allied powers, thelt Hogs rule on every sea, and exclude Russia from it. 'i he enemy his seen his ships blockaded or his ports, hh annihilated, his foreign relations destroyed. From the burnt in his ports. Ids coasts devastated, his commerce Nfn of Are'f to she (White Sea, from the Baitic to Kainicsch, Russia is imprisoned by our Meets. While by force ol cot:iage our soldiers triumphed over the des perate resistance of the Russian army, the combined Beets destroyed their provisions nod intercepted their communications, at the saino time that they kept up abundance in tlio allied armies, und brought them daily new reinforcements. (hir own maritime resources would scarcely have suf* Dced lor the transport of our troops and of the enormous quantity of meUirial whi. h such a war at a distance of SOO leagues from the country demanded The Ruglish Admiral1 v place t 60 vessels of the Rovnl and Commercial Navy at the disposal of France, which conveyed to the Crimea nearly -10,000 of our troops with 3,000 horses and 7,000 tons of matirir1. Every one knows moreover that tl Bornarmmd fell under the blows of otir soldlors, it was ehrelly the Fugle b navy that took them thore in ail the phases of thin war, at Alma and at Inker iiMiin, as at Bomarsund and at Sweaborg, the armies and fleets of Fngiand and France have mingled their blood tige'ber and emulated each othCT in bravery for tho common causa. At the Tchernaya onr allies hastened up to our sup port as wo hastened up to support them at Balaklava. In the ins- ami victorious efforts intalnst ^ebastopnl Eng ilsli and French equally fulfllled their heroic task. Of several different points of attack one only was con nuereil at first; hut the triumph Is not the 1" s due to all the corps of the allied army, which mutually support ing each other and sharing the resistance of the enemy, finally compelled him to abandon tho wails of that town wlii.h even his despair could no longer defend. Thu' the Commander-in-Chief of the French army was only just when he attributed to tho English auny a large share of glory in ihe successor that groat day 's work. As regards the pecuniary sacrifices which our allies have imposed upon tham?clves, they are equal to ours, if they do not exceed them. Without speaking of the Turk ish loan of 11)0,1)00,001) fr., guaranteed, it ts true. l>y France as well a* by England, but contracted for entirely by out neighbors, nor ot the fifty millions advanced hv them to the i'iedmontese government to enable It to give us the so useful assistance of her brave soldiers, F.nglan I has spent In thl war nearly 400,000 000 fr. Inst year, and has provided so that ?te can spend tills your more than a milliard, if nece*?ary. This enormous burden and all these saui itices the Eng. ilsh people knew how to support, like the French people, not only writh ri ignallnn. but with that eiv rgy which proves that It will snare nothing till Its object Is at tallied; and It may be said that, with our neighbor* as with our selves, the nation is not satisfied with following and sup porting its goiermnent, but goes in some measure beyond ft, by providing It with all the means for assuring the triumph of a eause the justice and grandeur of which are equally understood by both peoples. THB LAST BRITISH BATOKKT RTBUOOLK?APPEAR ANCE OK THB DEAD. The straggle that took place was short, desperate and bloody, our soldiers, taken at every disadvantage, met the enemy with the bayonet too, and isolated c unbnts took place in which the brave tellow* who stood their ground had to defend themselves against three or tour adver-arles at once. In th(< mefe- the oflloers, armed only with their swords, had little chance, nor had th-we who carried pistols much opportunity of using thein in surh a rapid contest. They fell tike heroes, and many a gallant soldier with them. The bodies of English and Russians inside the Redsn, locked in an em brace which death could not relax, bat had rather cemented all the closer, lay next day Inside the Redan as evidences of the terrible animosity of the straggle. Bat Ihe solid weight of the advancing mass, urged on and led an-h moment from the rear, by company after company, an I battalion alter batallion, prevailed at last *g?ln?t the Isolated and iHs jolnted band, who had abandoned the protection of una nimlty of courage and had lost the advantage of disci pline and obedience. Aa though aomo giant rock had advuneed iuto the sea and forced back the waters that bad buffeted it, so did tho Russian columns press down against the spray of soldinry which fretted their edge with fi re and steel, and contended in vain agaiust their i weight. The Htri.ggling luind was farced hack by the ene my, who moved nn, crumbing friend and foo beneath their solid tramp, and, bleeding, renting and exhausted, our men lay in heaps in the ditch boneath the parapet, sheltered themselves behind stones and in bomb craters in the slope of the work, or tried to pass back to our advanced parallel and sap, and had to run tho gaun tlet of a tremendous tire. Many of thora lost their lives, or were seriously wotiuded in this attempt. Tho scene in tho ditch wan appaling, although some of the odievrs have assured me tha' they and the men wore laughing at the precipitation with which many bravo and gallant fel lows did not hesitate from plunging headlong upon the mass of bayonets, muskets, and sprawling soldi' rs?tho ladders weie all knocked down or broken, so that it was riflicult lor the men to get up at the other side, and tho dead, the dying, tho wounded, and the sound were all lying in heaps together. The Russians came out of the embrasures, plied them with stones, grape shot and bay onet, but were soon forced to retire by tho Are of our bat teries and riflemen, and under cover of this lire many of our men escaped to the approaches. FALL OF THIS QUARANTINE BATTERIES?NAVAL OPERATIONS AOA1NST SEUASTOTOL. The following is a letter from an olticer who took part in the naval operations against the Quarantine Batteries before !-'eba*topol, on the 8lh nit: On SxaaaroroL, Sept. 10?On Saturday, the 8th inst., we were all to have gene In (at noon) to ut taik the forts, Sc., at the same time that the assault was made on the Malabolf, ltedan, and Central Bastion; but unfortunately tt blew a gale from the northward, which prevented the fleet from getting under weigh, to the great disappoint ment of all. (.'apt.[Wilcox was very fortunate in being em ployed actively in command of tho mortar vessels, and in conjunction with the Vrench doing good service. The mortar vessels kept up a constant fire on the forts Alex ander, the Quarantine, and the numerous bastions aud outworks, besides throwing carcases into the town? which caused destructive flreg in several places. At noon, or rather about 1 P. M., we observe! the French in pos session of tho MalakotT, which appeared to have been carried with ease and the moat complete success, but not so the Kedan or Central Bastion, where both our troops Pand the French were repulsed with great loss. The gene ral firing ceased towards evening, with only a partial cannonade up to midulght, when explosion after explo sion rapidly succeodod each ether in the town and out works. Soon after daylight we discovered that the Rus sians hud deserted the south side, and lliat the whole place was on fire and their line-of-biittle ships sunk. During tbo forenoon of the 0th, forts Nicholas and Alex ander were blown up- the explosions wore terrific, quite darkening tho placo for hours, spreading the mantle of destruction for miles around. A great nunilior of both French and English mot with dreudtul accidents from being too venturesome in trying to penetrate into the burning town, some in search of plunder, and Home from curiosity. This morning, tho 10th, we found all the lorts partially blown up, and the town slill burning, with occasional explosions. The Rus sia tis are very quiet, and there is apparency a great panic among thim. tango parties aro burying their deal in dei p irenchcs on the north side, and from the number of wounded and dead left in their defences, their loss must have been enormous?more, I export, ihun timy will ever own. All the fleet aie now placed in position to prevent the pessibiliiy of thu Russian strainers making tneir es cape iluiing ihe night, forming a cordon outside of Sobas ti pol for some miles. They will probably be destroyed in a day or two by tho mortar-vessels and rocket-boats, un less mey save us tho trouble by sinking them alongside of the lino of battleships. An armistice of twenty four hours has been grunted; after that I suppose we shall go [ to again, and drive them from the neighborhood. The whole place has a most desolate nppearanro, and the quiet which has now taken the placo oi the constant boom ing of guns is most remarkable. ' m, r W?A?' TnE FHKNC'n SOI.DIEHS SAID. <1,. ?

The xubtirb i# n< *rlv Antir?i? iU kroyc.i-all the roofs knocked In, and door- and windows APPEARANCE OP THE HOSPITAL O SEBASTOFOL. Of all the pictures of the horrors ol war which have ever been piesented to tho world, the hospital of Sebas topol presents the mo it horrible, heartrending, and re volting. It cannot be described, and the imagination of a Fu sell could not conceive unythlugat all like unto It. Mow the poor human body can bo mutiLnt'-d and yet hold ita soul within, when every limb ia shattered, and every vein and artcry in pouring out the Ufe stream, one might study hern at every etep, and at the same time wonder how little will kill. The building used as a iiopsitil is one of the noble piles inside the dockyard wall, and is sitnate in the centre of the row at right angles to the line of tho Redan. The whole row was peculiarly exposed to th< action of shot and shell bound ing over the lledan, and to the missiles directed at the Barrack buttery, and It bears in sides, roof, windows and doors, frequent and diatiaative proofs of the severity of the cannonode. Entering one of these doors, I beheld such a eight us tew men, thank God, have ever witnessed. In a long low room, supported by square pillars, arched at the top, and dimly lighted through shattered and uu pluz?>l window frames lay the wounded Russians, who had been abandoned to our merries by their general. The wounded, did I say? No, but the dead, the rotten and festering corpses of the soldiers, who worn left to die in their extreme agony, uutended, uncarod for, pack ed as closo as they could tie stowed, some ou the lloor, others on wretched treseels and beditoada, or pul lets of straw, sopped and saturated with blood, which oozed and trickled through upon the floor, mingled with the droppings of corruption. With the roar of explod ing fortresses in Iheir ears, with shells and shot pouring through the roof and sides of the rooms in which they lay, with the crackling and hissing of fire around them, these poor fellows, who had served their loving friend and master, the Czar but too well, were consigned to their terrible fato. Many might have been saved by or dinary care. Many lay, yet alivo, with maggots crawl ing about In tbeir wounds. Many, nearly mad by the scene around them, or seeking to escape from it in their extremest agony, had rolled away under the beds, and glared out ou the heartstricken spoctator, oh ! with such books! Many with legs and arms broken and twisted, the jagged splinters sticking through the raw Ucsh, Implored aid, wator, food or pity; or deprived of speech by tho ap proach of death, or by dreadful injuries in the head or trunk, pointed to the lethal spot. Many seemed bent alone on making their peace with Heaven. The atti tudes of some were go hideously fantastic as to appal and root ono to the ground by a sort of dreadful fascination. Could that bloody mass of clothing and white bones evor have bet n a human being, or that burnt black mass _ of flesh have ever had a human soul? It was fearful to think what the answer must be. Tho bodies of numbers of men were swollen aud bloated to an Incrodlblo degree, and tbe features disteuded to a gigantic size, with eyes protruding from the sockets, and the blackened tongue lolling out of the moulh, compressed tightly by thetoeth, which had set i on it in the death rattle, made one shudder aud reel round. In the midst of one of these "chambers of horrors"?for there were many of tbum? were found some dead and some living English soldiers, and among them poor Captain Vaughn, of tho 90th, who has "ince succombod to his wounds. 1 confess it was impossible forme to stand the sight, which horrified our most experienced surgeons; tho deadly, clammy stench, tbe smell of gnngerenod wouuds, corrupted blood, rotting flesh, were intolerable and odious beyond endurance. But what must have the wounded felt who were ooligod to endure all this, and who passed away without a han 1 to givo them a cup of water, or a voice to say one kindly word to theinf Most of these inen were wounded ou Sa tuiduy?many perhaps on the Friday before?indeed it is Impossible to say how long they might have been there. In the hurry of their retreat the Muscovites seom to have earried in dead men to get the n out of the way, and to have put tliem upon pallets in horrid mockery, fo thai their retreat was secured tho enemy cared but lfttie for their wounded. On Monday only did they re ceive those whom we sent out to them during a brief ar mistice for Ihe purpose, which was, 1 behove, sought by ourselves, U our overcrowded hospitals could not con tain and our overworked surgeon could not attend to any more.

There was more doing to day in Ilarlcm, but speculators are so strorv ( ly Impressed with the belief that there Is no real value In the stock, that they have no di | position to touch it. There would bo plenty of toilers, if there were any buyers in the market. There was an effort made this morning to inflate Cumberland, npon the strength of favorable reports regarding a new loan to re move the mortgage debt, but it was only a flash. Read ing closed heavy, with considerable sales. Erie was lower to-day, but It is wonderfully sustained. It must be a load for the individual-1 who In their blind confidence supposed that they could saddle outsiders, or a new class of specu I ttors, with such a stock at anything like current prices. If their bocks are not powerfully an I permanently sus tained by some of the Wall street banks, there will be some of them breaking before the war in the Crimea is closed. Albert II.

It was supposed that Dot more than two-third : of the land warrant issued uudcr the late act have been sold, but are still in the hands of the warrantees. The demand at present froin Iowa, Wisconsin and Minnesota, is very heavy, and will prcbubly continue until after the sales in Minnesota, which commence on 22d inst., and the closing of navi gation snd travel by ice and snow. The present issue now exceeds tlvo hundred per day, which will average one hundred and twenty acres each, or sixty thousand acres per day, from which some idea of the vast locations in the Western States may bo formed, when it is seen that this Urge issue does not Hupnly the demand.

The London limes of Sept. 28th says:? There was no intelligence to-day of any intendel move ment of the rate of discount by the Bank of France. The private letters from Paris, however, mention a general conviction among the mercantile , classes that, upon an announcement of (he Hank of Engiind having gone up to 5 per cent, u similar measure will be speedily forced upon them. Tho large amount of Australian gold brought by the Frances lionty and tho Northumberland is expected to be In course of delivery to-morrow, but, 'o the astonish ment of every one. it is alleged that tbe Bank of France, in order to create a temporary confidence as to the extent of their supply, arc continuing to make heavy purchases at a loss, and tha: consequently agieat portion of the arrivals?probably about half?will be unnaturally di verted to Paris. According to some reports, the total amount which the Bank of France originally arranged to obtain from thi. side was ?1,600,000, of which the largest fart uiay perhaps alieady have been despatched. With the certainty that in the course of a few weeks, when the pa|er by which tho operation must have boon carried out sliull matuie, the whole sum must bo returned, the alftir appears one of the most inexplicable ever recorded. That it should have had tho result of disturbing all calcula tions on this side was inevitable, since no person capable of forming an opinion on tho probable and legitimate course of business transactions would liure been likely to entertain such a contingency. If a commercial panic had prevailed In Franco, merely requiring a pallia tive to allay unieason.ablo fears, the step might hare been accounted for; but at a moment when the or dinary course of trade is sound, and nothing seem requlslte but an advance in tho rate of discount to a nor mal point, it is to wholly unlike what might have been expected from un establishment managed with the pru dence of the Dank of France, that tiro greatest curiosity is felt to Darn if any explanation exh ts which may not be immediately apparent. Many persons, seeing how utterly impossible It is to suggest any ordinary solution, have been disposed to fancy that Russia, whose neod for bullion is probably desperate, must bavo set on foot some secret operation to obtain a supply on credit, and that tho statements regarding the liunk of Franco are merely fictions, Intcn led lo cover It. This supposition set ins al together improbable, bnt if it were to became prevalent, it would be highly desirable that every means should be exerted to ascer tain the real character ot the transac tion.
