Mrs. Ward refused to accede to tbo request, on the ground that she had a family to support, and told her hiuband to go about hi* business. Ward then begged for half of the amount, but his wife was inexorable, and refuse 1 to give bitn a dollar. Finding that he could not accomplish his purposu by fair means, ho resolved upon using force, and, drawing a revolver, threatened to shoot his wife if fhe did not comply with his demand.

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL Wkdnkhday, Feb. 1 J?6 I*. M. The foreign exthange market closed with ra'her more firmness this morning; the low rates at tracted btiyera; every one who could scrape mo ney enough together mado baste to remit. The steamer took out $1,455 in specie. There in no change to note in the money market. There bt plenty of imney seeking employment on call at .5 a ?i per cent, and a lively inquiry for fa vorite names at the discount houses; but second class papor passes great difficulty, and at high rates. The stock market this morning was irregular at the openlag, but the tendency of the speculative stoc*swa-i downward, especially after the first board. New York Central declined 1 per cent, Toledo, yt; Heading, Illinois Central. 1%; Krle, I; (ialena, 1. Hudson Itiver, on the strength of the freshet, fell off IJ4 per cent. Ht*te stock*, on the < oulnry, were generally better at the first board, and steady aft'-rward. The decline to-day -ef m? to be regarded as a natural reaction after the advance of the past two days. If political difflcnlties are settled, it is tuken for granted Hat stocks will rise rapidly, under the com bined effects of ease ia money and the goneial intrca 0 of railway truftie.

When Mr. Dix took the office of Secretary of the Treas ury, he had reason to believe that the $10,000,000 obtained by the sale of Treasury notes would defray all the expenses of government up to March 4. On further investigations, however, it came to light that creditors of the government claiming be tween eight and aine millions of dollars were unpaid For some time previous, it seemed to have been the policy of the government to pay nobody, and to leave its creditors to starve. Soldiers, Bailors, em ployes in every department of the government, had been coolly informed by Mr. Dix's predeces sors that there was no money for them, and uo i emedy. Nor was this concealed from Mr. Dix when he first took office, and the books and accounts of the Treasury Department were in such conta gion that it was impossible to discover the true state of affairs without much labor. Messrs. Cobb and Thomas, like Mr. Floyd, had evidently no love for light. At length, on Monday last, Mr. Dix ascertained the exact amount of overdue claim* against the government, and iustantly applied to Mr. Sherman for leave to borrow $8,000,000 before the 4th of Murch, in order that Mr. Bu chaban's administration should go out of office owing no money which had been fairly earned. Ah it was feared that a government loan would not pell above 85 at the present time, an informal un derstanding was had with the Legislatures of the four leading Northern States that New York should endorse $3,000,000, Ohio and Pennsylvania $2,000, 000 each, and Massachusetts $1,000,000, of new fe deral bonds?the endoroation being granted on the basis of the federal loan of 1836 to the State*. With these endorsations it was supposed that the new bonds (sixes) would have sold ftt par, and Mr. Buchanan's administration Would thus have been efcabled to pay every dollar it owes before the 4th of March. This scheme was defeated by the objections of Mr. (iarnctt, of Virginia. To-<lay wc notice that Mr. bherman has altered his plan, and proposes to uoe part of the $25,000,000 already granted, to be raised by the issue of ooupon bands not exceeding $50 in amount. The object of this is, of conrse, to elicit bid* from the masse?, ac cording to the inethod so successfully practised by Napoleon during the Crimean war. lhe earnings of the trie Railroad for the month of Jifcimry, lMt, were $407 41 EatiiUigs January, 1800 336,3y0 80 Incrtasc $71,553 61 The annual report of the Illinois Central itail road Company is known to be in type, and to have been sent to England; but the directors have not yet vouchsafed to ghe a copy to any one here.

WkdmcjOat, Feb. 13, 1861. BEEF CATTLE. Of all things which the butcher* and cattle drovers and brokers dread, as exercising the most deleterious cffect upon their particular branch of trade, quad rageaima is the most dreaded. Accordingly, we wore not surprised at finding a dull markot at Bull's Head, though the rooeipts were not ovor and above heavy, and the average quality full as g-;od as usual. For the medium and lower grades the domand was much lighter than usual, In consequence of the Tauten season, and even the first class butchers manifested considerable tar dint 6a in their selections. Choice exlra steers were in email supply, and the few that wore on salo brought high pi iccs, ranging from 9*c. a 10*c. a 11c. First class cattle c anno l be quoted at over 9*c., howover, and a large proportion of good Western droves weie ho d at about 8c. per pound. Butchers genoraliy puichased as ligliily as posmbie, anticipating a greatly diminished consumption during the observacce of Lont. It was thought that quite a number would bo leftover unsold, but drovers put prices down vory low, in order to insure gales, ano it is probable a lar<?,i number weie uul lDg i"10 tUTn * fiuurs of tho day at our inbide quotations. The market was vory irrcgiiut? and prices merely nominal, as in scarcely any two yarda were they tbo bamo, and the viows oi in? brokers as to Ihe current quotations varied materially, ijauy oi the cflcrings were opposed to tbo seveie v. eatlior during tho woek,und were looking badly < aoufjh In consequoiico.
