PIBE HALL?Took or Eosofb?Siege or SasASTorou ?aw York, 'Wednesday, October a*, 1805. The News. The steamship Africa, which left Liverpool on the 13th inst., for Halifax and Boston, is now overdueat Ike former port. She brings a week's later Euro pean news. The old line or anti-fusion whigs held a convcn. lien yesterday, at Constitution Hall, Broadway, at which about sixty delegates from different parts of the State attended. From the tone of the resolutions adopted, as well as the whole proceedings, it will be seen that it was strongly opposed to all attempts at Jngton. The prosecution in the case of the people against Alderman Herrick closed yesterday. The defence commences this morning. The principal testimony taken was that of Mr. Edmond Waring, who swore that on the 13th of August last, he went to Alder man Derrick's house, handed him a slip of paper to the effect that he would give $100 for a certain num ber of business cards, and that he then handed him a check for $100 on the Mechanics' and Traders' Bank, on the condition that Alderman Herrick would give his influence in favor of modifying the grade of Eighty-sixth street; that that measure was finally passed on the 13tli of September, and ap. proved by the Mayor on the 15th, on which date the check was cashed. Mayor Wood is subjKcnaed to appear and give evidence for the defence. All the parties indicted by the Grand .Tury of the Conrt of Sessions on Saturday last have been ar. rested, or presented themselves before the Recorder, and given hail for tlieir appearance for trial, except tog ex-Councilman Beoklcy. This gentleman, we ?nderstand. removed to Philadelphia some time ago, J and is now a resident of that city, where he is study tog medicine. The United States Agricultural Society's third ex hibition was inaugurated at Boston yesterday with ?abounded telat. There were from ten to fifteen thousand persons on the ground. The stock of horses, cattle, sheep and swine, is nnpreccdentedly fine, and the collection of machinery and inventions, and articles of art and fancy truly magnificent. The festivities of yesterday closed with a well contested and exciting race between twenty horses that never before trotted for mouey. We give on the llrst page a fnll and graphic report of the affair. The Ten Governors, at a meeting hold last night, passed a resolution culling on the Corporation Coun sel to instruct them as to their powers, under the Prohibitory Liquor law, in discharging from the tity prison persons committed for drunkenness. Gov Draper made a speech, in which he took decided ground against the action of the Emigrant Commis sioncrs with regard to emigrant lunatics, as de veloped in a report recently published in the Herald. The Court Martial in the case of Lieutenant Hal demon met again yesterday, when the counsel for the accused submitted a rejoinder to the reply of the Jndge Advocate mode to their defence. At its con elusi on the Conrt announced that there would be no more open sessions, and they immediately entered upon a deliberation of their verdict with closed doors. They will transmit their decision to General Scott, who will review the entire case and render his approval or non-concurrence, which will be fo | warded to the Department at Washington for its ul timate action. The trial of this case, with summing ?p of the opposing counsel has. meanwhile, occu pied twenty days. A month or more will doubtless transpire before the decision will be made public. The General Kynod of the Reformed Dutch Church met yesterday morning at the church of this deno mination in Ninth street. The Rev. Dr. Wells, pre ceded. The forenoon was taken up by organiziTi/'J and in the afternoon the revision of the liturgy was the order of the day. The meeting adjourned till ten o'clock this morning. We have flies of Bermuda papers to the 2d inst. h the House of Assembly on the 28th ult., the rcsc* lotion for the payment of the I'resbytcrian Ministers' Belaries wns passed as follows:?"Resolved, that the Receiver General he, and he hereby is authorized sad required to pay, out of any unappropriated moneys in the Public Treasury, unto the Elders of the Presbyterian church in these Islands, or a majo rity of thein, (to enable the said Elders to meet any liabilities ire urn d by them during the period of time between the Kith day of August, 184!?, and the 30th day of J line, 1855, towards providing for the maintenance of the Minister of tho Presbyterian chun h for the time being,) the sum of >1352 IDs., the same being nt the rate of ?60 a-year." We publish elsewhere an enteresting letter from General T. C. de Mosquera, on New Granada poli ties. The writer contradicts the rumor lately put forth in some of the New York pupers, to the effect that revolutionary movements had recently taken place in that republic, and states that, although there was a severe struggle at the Congressional elections between the three parties who divide the nation, it was carried on with admirable order, and without the least tendency to revolt. Whatever their differences maybe, lie says, they oil concur in upholding measures of progress, and the fullest re ligions tolerance. The only questions on which dis cordance of political views exists arc, the adoption of a federal government like that of tiie United States, and the re-establishment of a sound finan cial system. Their agitation, however, has, happily, no disturbing influence on the peace of the country. At no period has respect for the laws been more implicitly observed, or life and property been more Hccure, in New Granada. The sales of cotton yesterday footed up aliont 2,000 liales, the turn of the market being slightly in favor of buyers lor some grades. Flour was again active, the sales having reached about 15,000 a 20,000 bbls., chiefly for export. For common to good grades the market was about 6(c. per bbl. dearer. Wheat wna tolerably active, and firmer for good red Tennessee, which ranged from $1 05 to $2 10. A contract for 5.000 bushels Southern red was settled at $1 W>. Canadian white sold at $2 15 a $2 16. Corn was liettcr, with sales at !?3c. a Die. Rye sold at $1 25. Pork was dull and rather lower; new mess closed at $22 50 a $22 75. Lard was active, and the sales, here and to arrive, in two days past have reached about 2,000 bbls., at full prices. Freights opened dull and lower, but reacted and closed in the afternoon with a firmer feeling for Liv erpool. The purchases of breadstuff's for export continue to lie large, and, notwithstanding the receipts of flour, wheat and other grain since Saturday, do not fall much below a million of dollars in the aggregate value, yet prices continue to lie well sustained, with a good export demand. Extra State flour was sold, deliverable is November, at $8 50. The sales rinoe' Saturday morning have footed up about 65,000 bbls., which, at 18 50 per bbl., would amount to about 1352,500. The Bales of wheat within the period have reached probably about 80,0001 a 100,000 bushels, with considerable lots of com and rye, all of which were largely taken for ? value of these products would probably, with flour, swell the amount of sales to about 1750,000. It is a mystery In trade to many persons how Europe can manage to take so largely of our breadstuflb, to which our exports of cotton must soon be added, and yet take gold at the same period, especially for any length of time. The evidence regarding the present large movements in produce proves one thing, and that is, that the agricultural interest, the main stay of all other intcrosts, was never before in the history of the country piling up the wealth that they are doing now. The Albany Seward Organ and Stock and Political Operators and Mor*U. ' We give place to a note-worthy article from the abolition organ of Seward and Gam Bon-thc Albany Evening Journal-a paper dis tinguished for its fidelity to political operators, and having an affinity for the stock gamblers as would appear by the tone of its comments upon this paper. The highest compliments that are paid to the IIkrai.d are such as are found in the Journal We are not, and never have been, the organ of either political or stock operators. Our course for twenty years has been uniform, and we can look back upon the long line of fraudulent institutions against which we have continued to warn the commu nity until they have toppled and fallen; against bank, railroad, insurance and mining swindles, with the full consciousness that though we may have interfered with the finan cial schemes and profits of the Peter hunks of the Stock Exchange and their newspaper organs and coadjutors, we have served the cause of common honesty and protected the interests of the unwary. Not a great enterprise looking to the perma nent welfare of the country?not an honest effort te advance and promote the substantial interests of the city and the Union?not a move ment of individuals, based upon the principles of integrity, has been made that has not fouud in the Herald a cordial and friendly encou ragement. On the other hand, combinations to defraud an unsuspecting community?such as that detailed by the Journal, which is a small example, and is, therefore, condemned by that paper?laws procured to give peculiar advan tages to corporators, stockholders and opera tors?whether from Congress or the State Le gislatures?wc have regarded with suspicion, and held to a strict accountability. We start with the general proposition that in the United States, railroad, mining, and ot ten manufacturing companies, are put into operation upon a speculative basis. Those who take the initiative arc expected to derive peculiar advantages. Practically, in nine cases out of ten the originators of these move ments so arrange matters as to secure for themselves not only all the profits, hut too of ten all the capital invested. We need only refer to the formidable list of mining and rail road companies put into operation or started and abandoned in the last five years, to prove this. Of the former scarcely one is left to remind us of their existence, and of the latter only one in ten is able to make any dividend to its stockholder They are called compa nies, but. in truth, they arc devices, intrigues, frauds. They arc organized after tho forms ol law, but in the process of organization?in the initiatory management?in the interim and anterior arrangements, a hall dozen cor porators contrive to absorb all the real bene fits of their respective concerns, and when they go into operation the outside world is surprised to find so wide a disparity between their well grounded estimates and the results. In England, and in all the old countries, where, either from a deeper moral sensibility or from the operation ot more stringent laws, enterprises of the kind are fixed upon a scale of absolute eciuality?where, if losses occur, they are equally borne by all, and if profits arc made, they are equally enjoyed by all there docs not exist so great a necessity tor continued watchfulness on the part oi the press. The truth is, in the United States the lead ing political press is, to a great extent,-iden tilied with private speculations?stock* and contract jobbing?railroad and canal works? and perhaps there iR not a paper in the whole Union more deeply involved, directly and in directly, in such nefarious transactions?one more thoroughly steeped in the iniquities of public plunder?one more regularly installed in the very centre of the temple of political gambling, than the Albany Evening Journal. To be charged with mercenary motives?with being in the field of private speculation?from such a source, is the highest compliment we 1 could receive. The subject which, on the present occasion, has excited the ire aud drawn out the rancor of onr amiable cotemporary is the New York Central Railroad, whose character and posi tion have lately been carefully analyzed by our financial editor, and who lias done little more than to republish the tables of the State Enj gineer, Win. J. McAlplne, Esq.. on the subject of the road, its consolidation, its cost, its con dition, its expenses and its income. Without going into the dctails'of this matter, which we leave to another department of the paper, we mny assert that the Central Railroad cost, ac cording to the statements of the Engineer named, $38,500,000 ; and despite the positive averments of the Journal, we have the authori ty of one of its directors for saying that its fioating debt is not less than a million more. Now, without saying another word, the in ference is unavoidable that that company has had the benefit of some exceedingly sharp men in its direction. That by fuir and honest deal ing it cost any such amount?that its stock holders enjoy equal privileges with its origina tors and managers, we hnvo no idea that the Journal or any sensible man in the State be lieves. l(fore than nine months ago the stock holders of the concern appointed a committee to investigate the charges preferred by the Herald against the proceedings connected with the consolidation, involving all the points in dispute. Why has that committee neglect ed to make a report? This fact itself, far more than the official statements of the Engineerand the analysis thereof by the IIkralo, was cal culated to excite public interest and alarm. The identification of this paper with the stock gamblers is absurd. Wall street "opera tors are no more nor Iors than a set of gamls lers, on a grand scale. They have their cap pers and suckers, whippers-in. pimps and blowers, equal to any thimble rigging concern in the country. The only difference, perhaps, is that they do not always redeem their chips. Gov. Reeder, the Administration and Con- J cress.?Two delegates have been elected to Congress from Kansas, at two separate elec tions?one, Whitfield, by the pro-elavery pwty, and the other, Reeder, by the free soil squat ters of tho Territory. Both will go to Wash ington, but as only one delegate is allowed from a Territory, either Whitfield or Reeder I must be rejected. Now, we understand that the administration Intend to stand by Whit field; but we venture tho prediction that unless Gen. Jeff. Davis keeps a close watch upon Mr. Pierce, he will be carried over to Reeder through the influences of the Kitchen Cabinet and bis inherent proclivities for free soil. The issue between Whitfield and Reeder may be ?aid to involve the whole iRsue between the pro-slavery and anti-slavery parties in Kansas; and the decision of the House in this case will most probably determine the mamtest destiny of the Territory, one way or the other. We should not, therefore, be surprised if the election of Speaker, upon this very teBt, were to keep the House disorganized for days and weeks, inflaming a state of sectional bitterness bordering upon dissolution and revolution. The House is tho judge of the election of its own members and delegates; but still, the po sition of the administration and its partisans in reference to Reeder is of some moment. Can the Cabinet organ, or anybody, for the benefit of Mr. Buchanan in Pennsylvania, or for the advantage of Mr. Wise in Virginia, give us any light upon this subject? Is Mr. Tierce for Whitfield or for Reeder ? Who says Whitfield ? We say he is for Reeder, and that Render's removal as Governor was all moon shine. The American Party?Important Move ment?The Presidency.?Among the resolu tions adopted by the late State Convention party of Virginia, held at Lynchburg, was the following:? Resolved, That in the judgment of this convention all ceremonies of initiation into the American party he discontinued, and all obligations of secresy be remoy ed?that its meetings should be open and public, anil Its proceedings conducted in accordance with the usages of political bodies?and we invite the co operation of all gotd men who approve the principles and objects of the party. This is an important movement, and fore shadows the complete reconstruction of the American party throughout the Union; and the work may yet be done, upon a sound, prac tical, progressive, matter-of-fact, constitutional and Union platform, in time for the Presiden tial election. There are two parties now ac tively in the field for 185(1?the democratic and the Seward black republican party?but scat tered between these two parties there is an abundance of floating materials, North and South, for a great national third party, suffi ciently strong to slip in between the democra cy and the black republicans, or at least pow erful enough to carry the election up to the House. Let the Union and the Constitution, a new administration, a bold foreign policy, an efficient navy, and general retrenchment and reform in the dispensation of tho spoils, be the card, and the new party, in carrying the election to the House, may win the day. Let the Virginia movement be followed up. The mysteries and novelties of the Know No thing organization are worn out. The true policy of all the various elements of all par ies opposed to this Pierce administration, is the formation of a new, practical Union par ty upon the living issues essential to a good 1 and useful federal administration. Nothing else will do for a third party in the battle for the Presidency. Kl.ECT10NEEKI.VH IN KANSAS?1' REE BALLS and Barbecces.?The following from the Park ville (Mo.) Democrat explains itself; and it shows that the " border ruffians " do not con line themselves to pistols and bowie knives in their electioneering movements Mass Meeting at ITclaware City.?There will be a mass meeting of the pro-sluvory party held at Delaware City, iii Knr.-as Territory, 011 next Monday, to take into con nidi i a lion tho calling of a convention to form a State Constitution.

" One of the most magnilicent cotillon parlies that has ever conic of in the Western coun try!''?"Free ferry, free ball, free barbecue!" Transportation, dancing, music, and a bounti ful dinner, all gratis ; and the whole county invited! Generous fellows, those "border ruffians," after all: and it must be confessed that their electioneering system is infinitely superior to that of the city of New York, where pugilists, short boys, bludgeons, and bloody noses are the order of the day. Nor do these free balls and barbecues indicate very strongly the horrors of civil war in Kansas. Keep up the music. The Indicted City Fathers?The Elec tion.?Upon the heels of our State, city and county election a number of our city fathers heretofore chosen by the people to the public offices they hold, stand indicted upon various charges of corruption. From the city officers to be elected this November let us hope for better things. We have the advantage of an extraordinary multitude of candidates, und from these we ought certainly be able to do something for the public safety. The more the better. Let 'cm come on. Calling lpon the Temperance Men.?Our elder Seward organ calls upon the temperance nu n to come to the rescue of the negro fusion ticket.

Letters of recall have been sent out by the State De partment, to Mr. Buchanan?not immediate, hut to be used when in hia judgment the Interests of the public service will justify hia leaving London. It la said to circlea well acquainted with Mexican af fairs, that President Alvarez is not the man for the times, although his patriotism and bravery are beyond suspi cion; and that General Comonfort being much abler, shrewder, and more popular, will eventually be entrust ed with the reine of government. But It Is to Senor Al monte (who will if he wishes be retained here under any circumstances or any regime) that Mexico looks for a leader, and as the probable regenerator of hie country. It is understood that Mr. Hargoua of New York, is here to sustain his original claim as successor to he Gary grant. Instructions have just been issued from the State De partment to Mr. Ward, our Consul at Panama, to raise his tiug; his conduct, like that of Dr. Worrell, being strongly condemned by government. The argument to the case of John C. Hale was closed to-day to the Court of Claims. The cases of John Ross, Asbury Dickens and Michael Nourse, were argued by Messrs.' Baxter, Lawrence and Badger, for claimants. These parties having discharged the duties of two offices at the same time, claim the pay for each.

Boston, Oct. 23, 1855. A convention of radical abolitionists, as they style themselves, assembled to-day in Tremont Temple.

The convention was officered as follows:?President?Dr. J. McCune Smith, of New York. Vice Presidents?Rev E. Davis, of Fitcliburg; Rev. A. P. Burdick, of Rhode Island; Rev. A. G.

Re solutions of similar purport were also read. The convention will continue in session about three days. It is very thinly attended. Knnlaw Congressional Election. Sr. LOUS, Oct. 23, 1865.
