On tho tuorniug of tho 23d wo entered Mel ville bay. On tbo following day, at three o'clock P. M., wo pa: "'"I lb Sabine isiaiids, theuoo we made a direct o-nrsefor Cap I'oi k, which wtis i ached at Ave o'clock P. M. of the 26th. (' ir jum-a^o through M ilvdlo bay was remark ible. No ield ice was soon until wo roach d with.n a few ott'apo Yoik, when we encountered a narrow Ft.-eun, which undor a full proas of si was bored wltho it dlftl Sully. We woruoaly tlfiy-flve hou.s lu efl'ec ting tho pas sage of th'' bay. S anding jI-jo lu under Gipj York, I kept a careful watcii fr-m aloft for Esquin' tux, and so in hid the gratifl o tiouto dtscov i.r u group of thorn movihg down toward t!io beach. Tl> schooner boin, hove to I went ashore, an I wis met by Hats, Pr. Kane's runaway boy, and oilier ua. /es. I Luis quickly reoognlzod Mr. & nutag and im scif, and h ivlng expressed a wish to go with us, 1 took b m together witU his who aud child, his hunting equip ment and two d >gs. on hoard an I s^a n stood no. tliward. At seven - cloclc of tho morning uf tlu 26'.h wo wcru brought up by a houvy ino pank, twenty m.l-s south of Bu.-i h's Strait. There beingahlgh sea setting directly up> :i ilie ieonnd the air being thick with falling snow, wo lost no true <n plying to windward, and hiving ob tained a good o.l lit hove to, to await better weather. Tb.j wind /ocn foil to calm, the clouds broko during the Bight, and on the morning of tho 2'lh wo rounded the leo, In shore, an I, under a light uoi lh-iaU wind, stool on' toward ihe coutro of th strait, wh eh we entered at nln o'clock P M. Here wo met a heavy pack through which no c aetical load could l>o distinguished. Our examina tion its margin, with tho view of finding an op-nlig, ires .1 ?h irt by a honvy gale which broko sudd, nly it|?>u k.K fium the northeast, ihe liergu being very thick ubout os wo could not Leave to, and we ran great risk of losing every efw-ed sad. Tho gale lusted, with very little n* ateiuent in Its vo;ume, during the 28th and 29th. On the morning of (he 30th, having carried away the foro tail we wnro g!a l to roaeh a sin ill cove, twelve miles WMith.t Cupe a! xandor. and th.'io dropped anchor in four fathom? water. fb-ro 1 obtained an excellent view from an elevaiioti of 1,200 loot. The pack apiieared to bo 1m, en trab'a, and vory llttio watorwaato bo ss>}ii along the weit shore. I determined, however, to attempt the oassaffo I had scarcely returned from my Joiim y to tho monn la in when 11k- pulo igain s-'t iu from the same quartor, anu with u v u >it*u jg which 1 b ivo scarcely soon equalled. Oa the m irmoguf tho 31st wo w.i-o driven from our moorings, and in the effort to save our anchors we wcro fcrcud upon a ?r.jiip of jC' borgs which had drilled in with tho current, anil carried away our jibboom. Tho wlatl inodeuted toou afterward, uud we once morn en tered tho strait; but the galo setting in- again, tho fore ft>lf w-is broken In weAriug, and being now obligoil to fcoav* to, wo were a thi.d timi driven Out of the Btrait, t?< ilc anchor behind Cape ?.?ftianiinr. ' Damages having been repaired, wo again entered tho ?trail on tho evening of s. j t.-mbor 1. Discovering no lea I through the ice u tho westward, we bore for Little ton Island, with tho hope of finding near the mora solid ico l.igUor up tho strait a more practicable open tog- Thegalostitl cont inning to blow with jireat force, ai I bug nudor reduced canvass, we made but ituio headway. Littleton Tslnnd was reached September 2. Being un.ib .- to p.->ictrnto the ico to the westward, 1 determined to work tip i be coast to Cap Hatlierton, with the hope or there (iu ling tho ico moro o; on. 'I'iio undertaking was noo s -arily attended with cbngi lurabfc rii-ic to the vessel, on ao. o i."t of iht heavy fieUs of ice lying off Littleton Hand. The schooner frequently came in co'lision with Ico ll.-kls from tlfteon to twenty i'oet in thickmss. 'Hie quarter inch Iron plate en tho cutwater was Urn off, and tho fal*e stern was carried away. S<oon afterward we encouut'-red a Eevoro "nip,'' and bof< the rudder could ke shipped, th ? two lowe-- plntols were broken off. In t' scri' ploJ condition it was impossible to mnko further h ad way, and , aftor extricating ourselves from ;the ice, w ran down into iJartsUn bay and anchored. Du iug the 31 , 4th and 6th of Sentomber the wind blew with great force from the s.rro quarter as before. On ?lj?4ih 1 reached, with much difficulty, Littleton Island In a whale boat, and obt.iiuc 1 u view to' the westward rr-mi an oievation of sorao four iian<tr?J fe- 1. The Ico wax vary heavy to the west an 1 south .vest? a thick, impono tntil- p<ck ? b .it to the northward, along the land, it was loose, and the prosi?ct of working westwaid from C?i<o Ilutli irt'-n was encouraging. On the' 6th the wind fell tn calm. Tho boots were got ?ut, sud wo pulled up to Littleton Island; but two days ha ! completely changed the p .sition of the ice. Between Littleton Island and Cape Hatherton thore was no open water, nor was theiouny visible from tho top ?f thai Isi'nd to the nor (west, west or smthwost. unable to advance, and fearful of b.-ing frozen in, we .a^;aln extri cated tho vessel fi om the ico and ran back into llurtsldn bay. Everything about us now began to wear a wintry ns per.t. Ihe temperature had fallen to eightoen degrees Del >w i reeling. Thkk snow had been faliiugai. Intervals uloco Aueost tJS. Our decks were covered with ice, the sails and rlgg ng were so still' with It that tlicy could bai i ly lie w rked. the schooner's sides were lined with a th < k cr ist, and largo masses of ica had accumulated o:i ih ? cutwater and forward rigging. The navigable season was c. early draw iug to a closc. No, -thin -I cal.-s detained tis during the 7th and 8th, and tho tenqe at nee Ltinuing to fall, I deemed it imprudent again to enter ill ; ice, an.l accordingly wo went into w in ter quarters on the Oili in n blir'it at th head of Hirtstein toy. The schoocet s were moored by four hawsei s, forty yardsfrom shore, in seveu litlliom.-t water. The sails w -i-e unbent, and the topmast s housed, and after giving tho crew a holiday our winter preparations wore com lB -uoo i. 'Ihe stores wero dop sited in a house built for th ? purpose on shoro. The hold was converted into a com f .-table room for tho men, and the upper deck was b > -ed over with boards.

At that period 1 made a preliminary Journey t< ? Vog Harbor, and there established a provision di'|K>t. 1 availed myself of tlilsopportuuity to visit liens selacr Hat bor, I)r.

Being well assured that nothing could b_ accomplished wlih tho boat exjieditlou. 1 font tho main party back < n tho 28th of April, ami continued iiur. award wilh three eompa' 1 n< and two sb dges. Tho Ice grow lis we a>lv.mca 1, and we wore four teeu days in re idling the wostco.i>t, a distance in af reet iluo of only fjrly miles. From this fact you can foi ui some esliniato o: the character of tho Ice over which wo travelled. Tho so\crity of the iabor broke d'mn tho dogs, :'nd I wa- com)Kdiod to fed to them a double ratlou, thus consuming rapidly the provisions, aul oro|?ortiou*lly shortening my northward Journey, reacting the we.-i, coist at Capo Iiayes, w? tra-volloa a <ng thu land through Kenuody chunnel until the lSth of May, wh.'U o ir prnvislm s h. ing exliattstod, we were c mpelU'd to turn our lac>? southward.

Although tbus early in the season the ice in Kennedy choline! was everywhere much decayed and unsafe, and In pome places entirely gone. In one extensive pool a (lock ol water |..wl w'ao discovered. 1 entertain no d >ubt th it the ice of Koniu dy channel wiu-t broken up and dis.-iolved Hi a very narly period of tbe summer. It was in this chmtiel that Dr. K;1 r.e disc tvered an o|M'n sea at a [Hiriod of six weeks later, In the summer of 1854. Before reaching tho vessel I lost all but seven of the re maining oogs, and the ic having broken up around Capo OlUSCDj t'ui th r .'\p oratloo to the northward was im|x.a during tin; present season. Tin; six weeks ,-ul B que:it to my return to Port Foulko were orcuplod in preparing the vessel for sea, In eom pi ling some unfinished surveys, in making magnetic and oilier observations, in collecting specimens of natural history, lu photographing the scenery and i.bjocts ol' Iti turcst iu iIid vicinity. The schooner had been much damaged by the Ice uncoutitcrs of the previous summer, and It was found impossible to restore her origiual strength. Being without ft carpenter, a lar^e share of the labor of repairs fell upon Mr. Mc1 'ormick, the nailing mas tor oi the expedition, of whose ready ingenuity and prac tical skill 1 cannot too warmly express my ncknowledge mon*. Thc,ieo broke up around the vessel on the 10th of July , and wo put to sea on tl.o 14th. After much dilUuulty and two trials wo reichod the west coast, twelve miles south of Cu|>e Isabella, and being unable to pasa the capo we dropped anchor, and on tlie 28th 1 made :i Journey to the north side of the < apo in a whale boat, and from au elevation of six hundred fo t obtained a view to the northward. In that direction, lift n n ml cs above Cape Isabella, the Ice was solid and unbroken as fur ns i lie i'ye could reach. To the eastward tlie pack ice was heavy and Impene trable. To peneiiate the strait under these circum stances, with the view of reaching a practicable point for future sledgo operations with my reduced forco (fori hud now only live dogs) was clearly impracticable, and behoving tliat I was not Justified in incurring the heavy oxpense of another year's absence without n prospect of corresponding results, 1 reluctantly abandoned the Held and t irned si uthward. Taking Whale .Sound on the way, I completed the sur vey ol' remarkable inlet, and obtained there an ex cellent set of waK'K tic determinations and some photo graphs of the natives, the glaciers and other objects of l.i t crest. Alter burirg through the ice of Melville buy for 150 miet we reai oe. 1 th ; southern water, and entered the h irbor of U|iper Nivilt on the 14th of August. There wo ruin ained ten days, engaged during that time in vario s scientific explorati 'in the 1st of September we reached < orliani,or Lictely, mid were there similarly oc C ipi-d. We were ready lor sea again on the (Hit, but a succession of southwesterly gales detained osui til the 17th, when we aga>u put to sea, and, having a fair wind, we were on the 22d 200 miles to the southward of Cape Fare well. From thai t urio until the 9lli of October we en countered constant southerly weather, with frcjuent gales. When oil" Halifax wo sustained serious damage, and were obliged to put Into that port for repairs. We aro now again ready for sea, and expect to leave this port to-morrow. I have to regret that we could not accomplish a greator northing, but situated ns we were, with Smith's strait to cr< s.?, and with a small f to ? at command, I, can but re gard the summer explorations ns fortunate and success The Held of research , although more limited than I had anticipated, was, however, new, and luy observa tions in din' rent departments of physical mid natural science will, I feel assured, meet the approbation of the p it runs of the expedition. 1 am well satisfied that they will be found fully to Justi fy the labor and expense which they hive c<*i. The un fortunate accident which occasioned the untimely death o Mr. Sonntag cause 1 a se ions loss to the ex|>ei!lt;ou. Tii ? system of observations and experiments which we h< I planned in concert had already accomplished impor t oil additions to Arctic science, when d< alii deprived me o." his InvnliMhle assistance: and with tie duties Incident t> Arctic exploration in the Held pressing id ta t y upon in", I w s not always able to exocito tbo p.ana which we liad devised. My otlic rs, however, on all <> iu. sions contributed their best ossis'.aaee, and 1 was by them relieved of many onerous rtuti- s. 1 am especially indebt ed to Mr. K idclifT, assistant astronomer, for his zeal us ns sistance in the work at thcobs. rvatory, and for assistance in taking photographic views; and to Mcsis. Kriorr and Starr 1 owe obligations for valuable aid in collecting specimens of natural history and other sclentillc duty. I will mention, in conclusion, that I am slill of opinion that Smith's strait can bo i avigated with rteain. Under sails alone I nm satisfied thai It cannot. It is my hope to bo able to renew the attempt with a small sloamer. With this view I have left some stores at Fort Ko ilko and at Upper N'avik. With the hope that this will find you lu the enjoyment of health and nappln' ss, I remain, very sincerely , your friend and servant, J. J. HAYK8. The Boolrsellcrs* Trade Sale.

Llttlo J: Brown's book*, found a good market, nearly 200 volumes of Ban" croft's "United States" being sold, allliougli the retail price of the work is $1" 60. Offers to purchase fl:'ty sets ut a linio were mado if the publishers would take from two to five cents below thoir duplicating prlco; but as they continued "Arm," tho prices were not reduced. Do Witt's editions of May no Rold and N. Orr's works on American forest life woro largely duplicated; but only sixty two copies of Helper's "lmi>ondli)K Crisis" fotmd'huy ors, and at a low price, altltough it sold by tho thousand at tho last pale. Doubtless the market is glutted with them. Applrton's Invoice sold well, tho prlccs obtained boing equal to former times. Tho school books wont off in largo quantities at tlw publishers' own prices, and If they bad only "come down" a little tho "numbers" might have been moch larger. Thoir Volunteer Hand Books and Napoleon's "Maxims of War" wero largely called for, and their photograph albums, embracing portraits of tho leading military, naval, diplomatic and othor important personages ? over a thousand in numbor? form quite n spocial feature, as they wero, to use the trado term, nictly gotten up. Tho salo yesterday went off well, Walker, Wise & Co.'s invoice selling readily, and the two now bonks ? Rowland's ''Recent Inquiries in Theology" and "Hymns for Mathers and Children"? boing freely duplicated. Irviug's works, published by Putnam, never fetched better prices , and Cooper's works went off smarUy at tho usual sale prices. To day's sale commences with Doolady '? list of New York books, followed by those of James Miller, Sheldon & Co., kc. In Sheldon's invoice, the most prominent works among thoir long list of school books and mtscolUr neons literature, is tho Riverside edition of "Macaulay s Essays." This is entirely now. Milmun's "llstory Of 1/atin Christianity" has just bcon completed in eight volumes, and Is now off' red with "Olsliansen's Common* tarics." In the way of school books, Sheldon's offers all tho works of that uaturo published by Pratt, Oakley k Co. ? they having bought up all their stock.

The at tendance was very largo, and Brown Dick was the favor ite ut the start. FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL. Wednesday, Oct. 23 ? 8 P. M. The money market is easier to-Uny. Loans at 7 per cent pn call are being paid off; the supply of money at 6 was in excess of the wants of the street at the close of bank hours. Good paper is still wanted at the discount houses at G a 7 per cent. The stock of second rate paper which encumbered the market a few months ago lias pretty well run out. The popular subscriptions to the loan con tinne fair, though it is difficult to ascertain the aggregate amounts subscribed, where there are so many receivers of subscriptions. This morning the banks were reimbursed half a million by Mr. Cisco, and at the tame time, in view of some heavy drafts which are advised, a call was made upon them for the remaining ten per cent due upon the first $35,000,000. The 13,500,000 will be paid in to-morrow. When this is done the banks will Lave paid $35,000,000 into the Sub-Treasury under the arrangement of August 19, and will have supplied gold in large quantities to Washing ton, Cincinnati, St. Louis and Chicago, with out losing $5,000,000 in coin. It is under stood that the public have already relieved them of one-half their advance, though barely a a month has elapsed since the first Treasury notes were ready for distribution. Kaeh day will now naturally increase the absorption of Treasury notes. The first victory won by the United States armies will give an impulse to subscriptions, and will swell European orders, which arc now quite limited in amount, to respectable figures. The banks begin their payments on account of the second $35, 000,000 loan with a Fpecie reserve of something like $45,000,000, and with the foreign exchanges ruling nt points which prevent the export anil insure the import of specie from Europe. They do so, with commerce reviving on ever/ side, on a basis adapted to the new circumstances in which the country is placed, with a vast demand for our products abroad, aiid comparatively no consump tion of foreign goods at home. Under sut li cir* cumstances, they may well be congratulated on the operation which they are making. The market continues unsettled pending tlie general expectation of a decisive battle. This morning rumors were prevalent of some dis aster to General Banks, and the bears put out their options with freedom; this afternoon it was gleaned from the meagre dispatches published in the newspapers that Genera' Banks and his army had safely crosrcd the Potomac, and that the enemy had not ventured to attack him, and the market rallied in consequcnce, closing steady. Governments were firm oil day; at the close an advance of % per cent was estab lished in the registered sixes. All the State stocks were higher at the close; Missouris rose %, Ten ncssees %, North Caroliuas 1 and Virginias %. New York Central likewise advanced %; bin the other railway shares were all % a % lower than last evening ? the business done being quite mode rate. All parties seem to be waiting to sec the re sult of an engagement, or of news from the naval expedition. The following were the last prices of the day:? United States 6's, registered, 1881, 93% a 04; do.

The Board of Brokers, having yesterday directed the appointment of a committee to ascertain what* if any, members were guilty of the crime of doing business cheap, in contravention of the rules of th? Board and the constitution, followed up the move ment to-day by the appointment of another com. rnittce to define tho terms " hroker" and " bank er." These light and agreeable tasks will serve very opportunely to employ the leisure which % per cent con .missions are calculated to secure for most members of the Board. From pre. sent appearances, indeed, it looks as though the bulk of the regular brokers would soon have nothing else to do than to officiate on committees. The public hove so long been accustomed to get their business done for an eighth per cent that they arc not likely to be willing to pay a quarter now without some consideration. A brokerage of % per cent gives the jobber who has a Beat in the Board so marked an advantage over outside ope rators, that it would really seem that, in voting for the new rule, the commission brokers have been discriminating against their own customers. Whether they will find the customers as ready to pay as the brokers have been to vote, remains to be seen. Another resolu tion, also adopted this morning by the Board, directed the doorkeeper to keep the Board open during businers hours. Tho object of this is to de j prive the "outside brokers" of the monopdly they I now enjoy of all business tli^t is 409c between the first and second boards. If the members of tho Bourd will agree to remain all day in the Board room, this resolution will produce a salutary re. suit. To-day, however, there were bjit three or four members in the Board room between one and two, and an operator who wanted to buy or sel'

stock could uot have found a inurket there. These various new rules which liavo bee* lately adopti d by the members of tho Stock Exchange seem to be unpopular as well with speculators as with that largo class of jobbers and broken who buy and Bell on tho kerbstouo, and loud threats of appeals to tho Legislature were uttered in many places to-day. The New York Stock Exchange would be almost as fat a prize for the hungry thieves of the Albany lobby as tho trunk railrouds. It is desirable, however, on every account, that legislative interference with the trade in stocks should be avoided if possible. In the course of a few days, wo take for granted, tho commission houses will discover that they made a mistake in endeavoring to double tho price charged to tho public for purchases or sales of stocks, and tho new regulation will bo reconsidered and rescinded. A good op portunity will then be afforded for tho trial of an experiment which has long been recommended by leading members. We mean an open board, liko that of Paris. It is be lieved thut if the public were admitted to the ses sions of the Board, boing shut oil' from the brokers by a railing, for the more convenient transaction of business, the traffic in stocks would be increas ed, and the public generally would acquiro an in creased confidence in stock brokers. The open bourd lias worked admirably in l'aris. No class of men are more universally respected, and none re alize larger incomes than tho regular ageua de change. The present imbroglio is not unlikely to terminate in a trial of the experiment here. The business of the Sub-Treasury was as follows to-day:? Rorei[its $J2S,8S3 CO ? For cupti ms 8H.000 00 ? Fur Treasury notes 279, Ui2 69 Payments, including led otned 0 p. ct. notes. l,t 60 071 91 Balance 6,74i,8o0 02 Information has been received that the commis sioners, appointed by Judge Miller, at Milwaukee, have reported in the matter of the second iuort_ gage bondholders agaiust the LaCrosse and Milwau. kee Railroad Company, and that they report that there is due to said bondholders, after deducting tho amount already paid to them, the fiuin of 125,000. This would seem to put a foreclosure of this mortgage entirely out of the question, which will be very gratifying to the holders of the third mortgage bonds and other creditors. The Ocean Steam Mills Corporation of New buryort has declared a semi-annual dividend of three per ccut, payable on demand. Wc understand that the New York Central Rail road Company has raised its rate on Hour from Rochester to New York"20 cents, now making the charge DO ccnts per barrel. Tho Pennsylvania Central is so overwhelmed with busine.-s that it has been forced to adopt an arbitrary rate from Pittsburg eastward, in order to keep freight back. The September earnings of the Philadelphia, Wilmington and Baltimore Railroad show au in crease of 113,000 over those of September, 1SC0, while in the first two weeks of October the in crease is still greater, being 128,000 for the two weeks.

Two of I ho city banks have been, perhaps, perraa ne. tly discredited, viz: the Union B.ti k and the St. IiOiiis I'.n k. The otter four banks v bleh have been operating on ill ? bankable fund syst< m, and m a Mate of le -nl zed si*?slon, have come to an understanding, wo are told, and hereafter the Mechanics', Merchants', Southern nnd Piute hacks, and their branches, will constitute tho "bankable fund'' lint , and tnke and exchange e tell other's not. H as formerly. The Kxchange 0?tik is doing an inde pondent business on a strictly i pecie basis, it never hav ing suspended. This agrerneint by tho banks will proba bly enhance tho prico of their money, ami probably ex clianjte will bo furnished ere long at a trilling premium. Wo are ulad to knew that it Is the Into nti<>n ef the Ho chnni'-."1 Hank to resume sjiecle payment at tho earliest practicable moment, anil the same is Raid of tho Mer chants' 1'aul. ; but of this we cannot speak so positively. Relative to the Farmers' and Western banks, the St. Louis Republican remarks:? An arrangement Is In progress, wo understand, which will probably result in at once placing these two banks on un equal footing with tho other banks ? a position which they should have all the time occupied. They aro owned and managed by tho must wealthy and respi cta ble gentlemen in tho mopt commercial part of tills State, and are as sound, wo are assured, us any ol our banks. A letter from the cashier of the Farmers' Bank, dated st Lexington, Mo., on the 17th in^t., states that tho bank haa burned, of its circulation in that place, $012,680. This is in addition to what haa been consumed at the branches and at tho office of the Bank Commissioner in St. Louis. Stock Exdinnijf.
