It . appears that while the company was in active servioe, Moyes had broken open a box containing some tobacco, which belonged to aotne other company, but had been Ml in charge of the Rifles, and for this be was reprimanded by Van Hagan. After the company bad returned to Nevada. Moyea accused Van Hagan of cowardice.

Misty weather baa rendered it lnvletbls at San Franciaco. A large jollification man meeting was bek) in Mechanics' Ball, an immense pavilion in San Francisco, on I be evening of the 26tb, to rejoice over tbe defeat of the Santilloo land claim and tbe overthrow of tbe Feter Smith title by tbe State Supreme Court. Everything is quiet and orderly throughout the State, and there is no news worth sending abroad. Mining accounts from Carson Valley are but a repetition of the same story. The Ophir Company are rending to San Francisco fifteen tons of ore per week Prom their claim ui the Comstock lead, which is worth on an average 2,0*0 per ton. About one ton in twenty taken from the mine is of this richness, and is sen to Ban Francisco. The balance remains in piles at tbe mine, to be used when smelting works are erected on tbe ground. Tins kind of ore is considered worth from ?00 to 11,000 per ton. Of the richness of the Comstock lead for an extent of a mile or more there is no longer a doubt, but it remains to be proven whether toere m soother valuable silver mine in the Territory. Tbe population of the Washoe region is reported by tbe local papers as increasing both by immigration trom Sal Lake and California. It Is supposed thai thousands o overland emigrants from the Western States will stop there in tbe fall.

The steamer Panama, which arrived on the 27th, brought Oregon 4atee to the 20th of June, and Columbia to the 23d of June. The Oregon news ia uninteresting. U is conceded that the democratic candidate for Congress is elected, and that such a Legislature has been chosen as renders certain the defeat of General Lane and Delasoo Smith for the United States .Senate. The democratic papers, however, claim that no republican can be elected to the Senate, and intimate that the Lecomptoo and anti Lecompton members will compromise their differences so as to secure two democratic Senators of moderate sentiments. The mining newt from British Columbia is rather cncour sgiug, and the Chinese population particularly wan increasing. Some fine specimens of gold from Queen Charlotte's Island, in possession of the Indians, are mentioned by the Victoria Gosstt*. The war between tbe different Indian tribes on Vancouver's Island progresses with unabated fury, and the government appears perfectly indifferent on tbe subject.

The Chicago Zouave#, who, since their arrival in tbia city, have been astonishing our military men and other citizens by their excellent discipline, gave another of their exhibition drills last night at the Academy of Music, which was a great success, that enormous building being completely filled from parquette to amphitheatre. There were over four thousand people in the house, a very large proportion of whom were ladies. Tbs Zouaves were escorted from their temporary <iuarers at the Sixth regiment armory, to the Academy by two companies of the Twelfth regiment, under the respective commands of Captains Boyle and Burr, and accompanied by Dodwortb's hill band. The Zouaves na vail fist aielaan Ala* a* (hirle niv most neul meu?K<wl In two platoons. They were attired in their full Zouave costume. Aa the military proceeded up Broadway the sidewalks were thronged, and the balconies of the hotels, and the door stoops and windows of private dwellings provided thousands of smilmg faces to get a glimpse of the champion soldiers of the West. The doors of the Academy of Music, in Fourteenth street, were opened at seven o'clock P. M., and at that hour there were over ooe thousand persons waiting to get admission. When the doors were opened a general rush for admittance took place, and men, women and children were crowded together to such an extsot as to prove serious to crinoline, 'coal scuttle" hats sad ftmcy dress coats. For upwards of one hour a perfect ti<!e of humanity poured into the Academy, and the democratic rule of "first oome, first served" was strictly observed, as no seats were secured before the doors opened. At a quarter before eight o'clock, the roup d'ail of the interior of the Academy was very grand. The audience was composed of the very elite if the beauty and fhshioo of New York. The intense heat experienced during the day appeared to have lost none of its force in the evening; consequently, thousands of fens I were brought into requisition by the audience, and the continual and combined oscillation not only presented a novel sight, but created an artificial aerial current, which swept through the immense interior of the Alademy. We doubt not but every officer in the First Division was present, besides innumerable officers of Die United States army and navy. The bouse was literally jammed, until there was not standing room in the lobbies of the bouse. At eight o'clock the sound of music was heard from the street, and the impatient audience sent up a hearty cheer long before our military guests appeared. The muskets of the Zouaves were stacked across the stage, and the scenery thereon displayed s forest view. In a few moments the touavee marched in, and as the bead of the column came in view of the audience there were lonf sod loud bursULOf enthusiasm from the male portion or the audience, and shaking of handkcrchleflt and significant smiles or welcome from the ladies. Iiodworth's band ooenpied the orchestra boxes, and opened the performances of the evening by aelectioos from the operas. The first new of the Zouaves as they came on the stage, with their characteristically unique uniform, presented a comical appearance. Attired in the complete Zouave dreas, with the jaunty scarlet cap, the blue jacket and loose trowsere, a la Turco, the audience no doubt imagined for the moment that the veritable Zouaves d'Afrique, fresh from the bloody work of Soiferino, stood before them. Nor is its ooetume the only feature of resemblance between this corps and the original, but the steady cadence of their step and prompt and united movements at once impressed toe spectator. The shrill, prompt and distinct order of Capt. Ellsworth soon was beard, giving the command, "f ront, ' when the company faced directly opposite the stack of muskets. The company were then exercised in the manual of arms, vt* Shoulder arms, trail arms, shonller arms, charge bayonet, shoulder arms, unfix bayonet, shoulder arms; right shoulder shift arms, shoulder arms; left shoulder shift arms, shoulder arms, support arms, to place rest , attention; (from position of support) right |j)Ouldsr shift arms; left do.; support arms left shoulder shift arms; right shoulder shift arms. left da; support a ms, shoulder arms. secure arms. shoulder arms. present armt. shoulder arms. order arms. ground arms. parade rest, attention. raise arms, fix bayonets order arms stack arms.

All theee movement* were executed with the same admirable precision which marked the commencement. In luading by motion every movement was done as If by one man. The command to ''ground arms'1 was then given, the knapsacks were uaslung, and after a short rest arms were again taken, and Uie following movements perform ed ?Take position by file into line, open ranks, manual of arms; stack arms fin single rank).

As was to be expected from two clubs of lb * reputation of the Excelsior and Atlantic, there was ex cellent playing on both sides, but tbe " luck of the day ' seemed to be almost wholly with the former. The pit thing of Creighton (Excelsior) excited universal remark at being very excellent, and Whiting and IasbsU j distinguished themselves at the bat.
