DEATH OF CAPTAIN HKOlUiK M'LAVK, OF THE REOI MINT or MOISTED K1PLK8, I'NITKD "TATE9 A It MY. At a meeting of the officers serving In the campaign new being carried on against the N'avi^o Indians, con vened at the quarters of the commanding officer, Brevet Lieutenant Colonel K. K. S. Canbv, Tenth I i fan try, at Fort Defiance, New Mexico, on the 18th of November, 1800, a committee of one officer from each regiment and corps serving on the expedition was appointed to re|>ort resolu tions expressive of the sentiment*of the meeting relative to the recent death of Captain Geoige Mi lan j, of the re giment of Mounted Kities. The following gentlemen were named on the commit tee:? Brevet M?jor E. H. Sibley, Second dragoons; Captain Lafayette McLaws, Seventh infantry; Captain Henry B. Mta, Fifth infantry: Brevet < iptaln Alfrou Gibbee, re gtasM ef Mounted Rifles; First Lieutenant Henry B Kelly,Tenth Infantry; Assistant Surgeon J. Cooper Mc Kee, Medical SUIT. The committee reported the following resolutions, Which were unanimously adopted:? 1. Resolved, That we have burned with unfeigned re gret and sorrow of the death of our friend and brother in arms, Captain (ieorgo tlcl-ane, of the regiment of Mounted Rifles, occurring whilst gallantly charging, attlio head of his company, a party of the enemy, at the foot Of McLnne's Peak, head oi the Canon do Choi y, Territory of Mew Mexico, on the 13th of October, A. I>. 1860. Capt Me Lane entered the United States Army an a *<.<cond lieu tenant of mounted rifles in May, 1840. and was ordered to the seat of war in Mexico. After enei^tieally assisting in the recruiting of his cor ? y, he joined the army of General Ibylor immediately after the battle of Monterey. He then marched with his company to Tampico, aiid afterwards joined bis regiment during the operations against Vera Out, and partook of every danger of that memorable siege. He afterwards was particularly men tioned for gallantry in the battles of Oerro Gordo, Con trms. Churubueco, Chepul tepee, Garita do Belou.aud the city of Mexico, by such men as Generals Persirer F Smith, John A. Quitman and Winfl61d.Scott Hardly out ?f his teens, a fresh faced boy. with a beardless chin, but with the heart of a man, he led bis company across the trackless prairies from Missouri to Oregon. Then, after a short leave of absence, he again joined his regi ment in Texas, and was there actively employed and honorably mentioned for gallant conduct agAinst the enemy. Always on votive duty with his company and regiment, he mar( 'nM with them in 185$ to the Territory of New Yjct\6b, the scene of his death. He was most particularly mentioned In the Navajo war and expeditions ?f 186#, was wounded in a desperate light against great ?dds at Bear Springs, in which the Indiana were badly beaten. At last his time came. The pitcher so often carried to the well was broken at last?the gallant Mclane fell. On the 10th of October last he left Fort Defiance in command of his com pany, with the first column of tho Navaji expedition, under Brevet Lieut. Colonel Canbv. On the l.'Uh he was aentwlth his company to the right of the column, into the midst of a heavy pine forest. In a short time he came on the enemy, ordered the chargo, and in the charge fell at the head of his men. 'lhe (>eak at the foot of wnlch he met a soldier's fate was named I* his bro ther officers 'McLane's Peak, and stands p.-ominunt h* a landmark to the perpetuation of the memory of a noble and brave man. 2. That In the death of Captain McI/me the army has lost an officer of approved capacity and courage, one of its most gallant spirits and brightest ornaments?tanx jteurdtatu reproche?his comrades a friend, high toned, genial, true hearted, endeared to them by the associa tions of many years in peace and war. 3. That to his bereaved family, upon whom his loss falls most heavily of all, wc desire to convey, in this the hour of their affliction, the expression of our mwi heart felt condolence and sympathy. 4. That a copy of these resolutions be enclosed to Capt. MclAne's family, to the headquarters of the Department, and ef the regiment In which be served and died, and that the publishers of the New York Century, the Nkw York Hkhaijo, the Baltimore Sun, the St. l.oeis KepuUi can and the New Orleans Picayune be respectfully re quested to insert them in their columns. The Abion Poltonlng Cane. HCDSON COUNTY COrRT OF OYKK AND TERMINER, nrm DAT. The CMC for the prosecution closed en tbo evening o the fifth day, and the defendant's cause was opened in an eloquent appeal by Mr. Zabrinekl. Ho said the jury could not render a verdict of guilty unless the State found be yond the probability of a doubt that the poison had been administered by Abson. The evidence conclusively showed that the death had been produced by strychnine; It may h?ve been given wilfully by Abson, but we may as likely presume that tbo deceased had taken it herself for the purpose of Helf instruction or through her own mistake, or that of her husband o tbe doctor. The counsel explained the wretched and un happy condition of Mrs. Abson previous to ber death, also that there was no proof or reason to believe that thoro was any Illicit acquaintance between the servant Julia and Abson., Mrs. Ann Steele was the first witness called for tho defence. She testified that Mrs. Abson had told her she had produced an abortion some months previous by taking poisonous drugs. The witnesa then gave a long descrip tion of the condition in which she found tbe body after death. Risabeth Abson testified?I am the eldest daughter of William Abson; my sister Sarah and myself are the chil dren of a former wife; I have always lived with my Attbcr at home; my stepmother s health before she died was very poor , I sat up with her tho night before she died; I gave ber powders that the doctor left; she took nothing but a drink of tea that night; she complained of a great pain in the stomach; she was ;estless the whole night; she oomplained of a twitching pain; the powder which I gave her did not seem to relieve her, I gave her a powder after the doctor left on Thursday; 1 was going to give her a second, but as my father was in the room 1 toft it ~to him to give. The further examination and cross-examination of this witness elicited no new facts. Several witnesses were here examined, whose testi mony proved unimportant. Jane Lorby testified, on cross-examination, that Mrs. Abson had been in the habit of procuring and taking drugs for the purpose of procuring abortion; she once confessed to me that the drugs had produced the desired effect. Mrs. Mary Abson, sister in-law of tbe prisoner, corro borated the statement of the prey ions witness as to Mrs. Abson taking drugs. Cross-examined?Mrs. Abson told me that If tbe drugs produced death, which I told her would be the case, that her husband would be taken up for It, she also told me that Mrs. Abson had said she didn't like ber huahand. Elisabeth Levins examined?I have been several limes with Julia Kennedy and Ai>son to take oysters he used to meet us in the street, near the ferry, and we would go With him; Julia boarded at our house. Alston used to call quite ofecn; som<'tim<-s Julia would bo there and some times she wouldn't; the day Julia sailed for Europe Abson came with the wagon for her trunks, and wu on board the ship the day she sailed This witnee* on a clonc cross-examination disclosed many little acts of intima v between Abson and Jjlia. The case was here adjourned until ten o'clock on Monday. ?tvmsiif sf Occam Steamers. FROM MMTM. Halted Klagtem....(Hants* Jas 19 ...New Tors KMar Liverpool Jan 22 ...New York Mew Tom. Boataaaaptoa.

The money market continues unchanged, the amount offering being stiff on the increase. The foreign exchange market for to-day's steamers closed dull at 106% a 107 for sterling. The news from England by the Arabia last even ing caused a panic iu the Stock Exchange this morning. The Arabia brought over some order* to *ell stocks, partly for cash and partly on sellers' option*: aud there being no orders in the market, prices gave way suddenly and heavily. The slocks most affected were Illinois Central, which fell 7 percent, and Erie, which fell 5; the general rail road list sympathizing in the decline. State stocks were also lower. Missouris fell 1%, Tennessees 1, and the stocks of the other border States in pro portion. It is presumed that the stocks of tlie^e States which are held abroad will be sent here for pale. United States fives advanced 2 per cent, and Treasury notes were in rather better demand; the notes bearing 10% interest sold at par. After .the first board there was a general rally, and better prices ruled all round. This afternoon, however, the reaction was lost again, aud still lower prices ruled. All the State stocks, und especially Virginias, Tennessees and Missouri#, were offered at a decline. At the elose the market was heavy, the following being the quotations:? Doited States 5's, 1874, 92 a 93; Indianas, 80 a 8$; Virginia 6's, 70 a 72; Tcnnessea ?'?, 67 a t?8V?; Missouri 6's, 65 a %; Canton, 14 a %; Pacific Mail, 81% a %; New York Central Railroad, 77% a %; Erie, 31% a 32; Hudson River, 42% a %; Harlem, 14% a 15; do. preferred, 36 a %; Read ing, 41,1\ a 42; Michigan Central, 51% a 52; Michi gan Southern and Northern Indiana, 14 a %'; do. guaranteed, 31 a %; Panama, 111% a 114; Illi nois Central, 71 a %; Galena and Chicago, 68% a *4; Cleveland and Toledo, 29% a 30; Chicago and Rock Island, 54% a %; Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, 69 a %; Illinois Central bonds, 96 a97.

Vermilye $120,000 The Arago to-day takes out $2,475 in specie. The London Economic of January 19 thus notices the course of money matters:? The discount market throughout the week has been re markably steady, the rate being, as a rule, to 7 per cent, although lulls having a few days to run have been discounted at 6% per cent, but these cases are excep tional. Money continues abundant, although the rate is high, and it is the opinion of the best informed that for the present there is no probability of Um rate of money being lower. The Bunk of KngLuid is the great index which regulates the rate of money, and so long as the | drain of bullion exists, tho present Bank rate must not only be maintained, but, if nocessary, Increased, and so long as the present rate of exchange between America and Kngland exists, so long will gold continue to flow there. There has been a great amount of anxiety during tho week relative to the flank of Franco. At one period a rumor prevailed that the Itank of France was about to suspend specie paymeuts. at another that a new propo sal had been made to the Bank of Kngland to effect an ex change of gold for silver. No one can venture to predict what the present drain of bullion may do. It may com pel both the Bank of Kngland and the Bank of Prance to sus|H'nd specie payments, bat for the present neither es tablishment has any intention of the kind, and we be lleve both Intend to adopt the same rule should the pre sent drain of specie continue, vli raise the rate of dls count As to tne Bank or France having made any fur ther application to the Itank of Kngland to ex change silver for gold, there is no truth whatever In the rumor. There is, however, a rumor this even ing that the Bank of France has entered into an arrangement similar to that entered into with the Bank of Kngland, to exchange silver to the amount of ?1.260, 000 sterling for gold with the Bankof St. Petersburg, and also that the Bank of Franoe has purchased about ?160.000 of gold In (iermany. And it is well known that the Bank of France has an amount of silver dispropor tion^ to the amount of gold it holds. There Is nothing remarkable in selling one and buying the other, when ever a favorable opportunity occurs, indeed this is the business of all banks. There Is no donbt, also, that the drain of bullion from Francs and Kngland to America arises prsclsely from the same causes, vli a bairuice of trade against both countries, arising from a deficient and badly gathered harvest, and greatly tncreaae>lpurob?ses of corn and cotton from the united Mates. These, con pled with a falling off of orders from America, have cre ated a balance of trade in favor of the United States, which Is being paid In gold; hence th? large exportation will continue, as we before observed, so long as the ex changes, which are tb? Index of the baltnce of trade, continue as they are. The latest accounts from America continue very un favorable in a political extent, and It Is feared that any hopss of now preserving the Union are almost forlorn. As for pred lot Ing what maybe the consequences of se cession on the money market, It Is pure presumption. One thing we hope It will do, and that la, preyent further purchases of American securities for the present. It pos sibly may turn out that ws have enough snd to spars. Wo have already exported ?2,7tO.OoO gold to America, and It Is probable that tbe Arabia, which sails to morrow, will take out ?260,000 more. To these amounts may be added that portion of the gold from California which be longs to this country, which IS very considerable. It Is computed, also, tbat our Investments In America amount to nearly ?100.000,000 sterling. A groat portion of those pay dividends, consequently, as remittances of their dirt deoda would at the present rate of exchange *?<? made in bills rather than in bullion, it may be fairly estimated that wr have pretty well paid our debt, ao far aa the balance of trade goes, to the I'nited Stataa. Wluu we now have to dread is the breaking out of Civil war there, which will cause every man to hoard fold and exchange thi> note* of the ban 'or gold, and the mutual mistrust that will arise, and our having to send gold to purchase corn and cotton.
