War aen, who, it is charged, has been going around lately de manding people out of large sums of money by presenting Rtm with worthless checks on the North River and other hanks in payment for goods. MUton G. Rathhun, one of the Inn of Alfred Muuroe & Co., clothiers at No. 441 Broad way, appeared before Justice Osborne on Monday, the USA inat., and in an affidavit set forth that Mr. Warreu name to the store of the Mrm on the 13th of October inst., ha pay for some goods, amounting to about $77, which he hoopurchased a few duys previously, und stated that he feed Seen over to New Jersey that day, and had not got hack as soon as he expected- He therefore asked Mr. K. fer a blank check, which ho filled up for a larger amount *??? his bill) as be stated that ho wanted some money fbr himself and it was then too late to get it from the hank. The check was for $106, and is as follows:? New York, Oct. 13, 1855. North River Bank. i Pay to A. Monroe & Co., or order, one hundred and! sixty live dollars. < ?i?6. JA<?. A. WARREN. J Mr. Rathbnn, believing Mr. Warren to be an honest man. directed the bookkeeper to pay him the difference, $o wit: $88, or thereabouts, which was done, rhe check wne snbae<inently deposited in Bsuk, but was afterwards returned, as it was ascertained that Mr. Wan en had no tends therein. Officer Hope was immediately directed to keep a lookout for the man. Rnd had been to Troy and several other places in search of him. Yesterday, the officer espied a man tn Wall street, between Nassau and WilkLam, answering exactly the description given of Mr. Warren. He immediately arrested him. Mr. War ren it also accused of being the hero of sevoral other ?taller exploits. It is suld that shortly after tricking Mr. Rathbun, he went to the Astur Honse, where he saw ma old friend, to whom he represented that he had been to Jersey all the afternoon, aud, having been de 1 there later than bank hours, he was unable to oh t any money. He stuted that he had a large amount tetbe North River Hunk, and aaked his It lend whether he the cashier of the Aator House, aud if he coulJ get , to cash a check for him. His friend told him he 1 do io, and both of them fbrthwlth repaired to the cnnhieT, who gave Mr. Warren, in exchango for a check ?n the North River Bank, a large sum in curreut money. Ihn friend of Mr. W. stated that he would stand security far him, and that if it was found that Mr. IV. ha 1 no ?nda in the bank, he would pay the amount. To mike a long story short, the clieck was duly deposited, and te amed, and Mr. W.'a friend had to sutler for his tc - dancy?t. ft, he paid the amount for which tlie chock was ?Med up. Trie accused got bail to tho amount of $300, to i ppear at a farther examination. THK MAYOR'S COMPLAINT BOOK. This, as the public arc aware, lias become one of the settled institutions of the city government, and its clfi ofeney can be seen in the Improved condition of our ?treets, and in the ubntcment of a large number of pri vate as well as public nuisances. Complaints that could not he reached in any other way are recorded in Its peges, and if at all within the power of xlre Mayor they are promptly attended to and redressed. The long list ?f grievances which were at first brought under his no tice have been greatly reduced through its Inntruraontali ta; and although its pugon are still open to the public, &ey are, therefore, not so crowded as thoy were- former ly. There may be some, however, who are not awaro of Me existence, and others who Imagine because they1 never tonr anything of it that it has been done away with. To nil inch it may be sufficient to say that the Mayor's book hi still in existence, and that it ts as efficient as ever. The Turf". MARYLAND. Ho<jus Rc?

Ac., AN AMERICAN RESIDENT, of Quebec. CORRESPONDENCE. TUB ALU FT) IIUUS8?PI OASISG NUTUMJUTION. | lo the Editor oftlie Quebec Gazette. | Bui? lu these days of war and bloodshed it is refresh ing to read such renolutiooa as the one which follows extracted from the proceedings of a meeting of the Montg' iiu-ry Guurds, whoso late visit to Quebec was so deeply fell, both in our hearts and in our purses:? " Resolved. That we hereby offer our bom thanks respectively to Lieut. A. Cockell and tho officers of tie 10th Regiment of the line, for their kind invitation to dine at the Citadel of Quebec, and Ibvir general atten tion. Also to the Eire Company No. 9, (belongiug to 1 iamond Harbor,) for their escort during our inarcti through lhat city." Now, sir, there are always yome snarleyows inclined to find fault, and 1 have heard objections made to a few ni the very many resolutions of the Mon'goinerjes. those critics, lor instance, suy that among such a lot of reso lutions the No. 9 Company might have had nun to ikotu stlves, without being jumbled up with the 16th Reg' . which neither might like. Fault is also found with tbe resolutions thanking Montreal and Quebec, because the citizens of Montreal are thanked for their " enthusiastic rcccptii n and well-regulated good nature." while we in Quebec, who paid ?100 more, have a resolution no- long er, informing us that "tho reception and enthusiasm oi tbe dtiaeus of Queboc huve merited unalterable esteem." liut everything can't be done to please everybody; so, if the ?t. Patrick's Society and its f: ionds aro satisliod, we ought lo try and be so too, though we may perhaps be allowed to hope that the next visit won't cost quite so much, and that the officers of the ldth will favor the Quels c Gazelle with an aconunt of the dinner they gave the Guards, with all tho toasts and speeches.

Tbe " Guards " lender their best thanks respectively tn Taeut. Col. Coekelt and tho officers of the 10th High of tho line, for the!) kind invitation to dine at the Citadel, Quebec, and their general attention. Now, Sir, one of i wa things is the case. Either the Montgomery Uuards have been egregiously hoaxed or the invitation to dine at the I'ita del was the cninigo of their fertile Illbernl vu imagina tions, (assisted perhaps by the ?100 Corporation spread) for no such invitation or general attention was tendered them by the ltith.

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. .MONEY MARKET. Ti 6-day, Oct. .'to -*i P. M. The stock market at the morning hoard was oinplinti (ally flat. There Wus an iudi-position to operate on livtli sides, notwithstanding the apparent advantage of tb" operators for a decline. Th" generality of sccuritie were offered at lower prices, and mostly sold for cash or on short time. The Impression is general, in view ? f th" uncertainty of tho future, tliul the safer courso is to curtail liabilities and wait for a more settled *ta e of things in Europe. "When a Liverpool merchant fails, the whole United NtattM trembles," says Mr. Crampten. If this bo true, should it be ma' ter of surpri?e tliat the expectation of the failure f the think of Erauce should make us shake7 Wo re gard the chances for such au eve ut a* slight?still, there are thousands wlm look upon it as probable. That such men should "tremble" and be anxious to get rid of a portion of their stocks, and should infect tl.nusmd of others with tlie same feeling, is not to bo Wondered at At borne nil I' well. Money is easily enough domed for all healthy purposes. Exchange is don n, and going down. Over a million and a hall >f gold arrived this evening'from California, t> replenish Co vaults of tlie lumks and quiet the (ears of their cash iers.
