IMPORTANT TO SUYETRADERS. Judge Helton'' Ch?rg? In Oortlon'iC?w Conviction of Cnptaln Gordon. UNITED 8TATB8 CIRCUIT COURT. Nov. J.?The ease having beon summed up by counsel on both sides, Judge Nslsoo proceeded to charge the Ju ry, as follows OwTLnm or rm Jw?We bsve been exceedingly anx ious to submit this case to you before the adjournment, Inasmuch as we have felt it a duty to requlro that you should be kept together during tho trial. So much time has l*c u consumed by tho learned counsel that we shall feel under the necessity of being very brief, and shall sa tisiy our duty in the OMe by calling your attention from the wide range of discussion which you have heard from tho learned counsel on eithor side, to the real issues in volved in ths case, and upon which you should conlhie your deliberation- in determining upon tho guilt or inno cence of tho primmer. Now, gentlemen, the prisoner Is Indicted under the iirth sect ion of the act of 1820, which Is," That if any citizen of the United states, being of the ship's company of any foreign ship or ves sel engaged in the slave trade, or If *ny person whatever., being of the ship's com pany or of any ship owned wholly or in part, or navi ?ated for or in behalf of any citizen of the hited States, shall forcibly confine or detain,or aid and assist in oouftniDg or detaining on board such vessel, any negro or mulatto, with Inteni to make him a slave, such person shall be a4)udged a pirate, aud on conviction shuil suffer death." This is the law undor which the prisoner has been indicted,and under which ho roust be convicted, if at all; and the various statutes which have been com mented upon, anil many of which have been read in your hearing,aud the law which has beon read from the books, have no material hearing upon the merits of the case, and may as well be laid aside and forgotten by the Jury, tt will be sufficient for an intelligent discharge of your duty to look exclusively to this provision of the law. There are two counts in the indiotmunt to which we shall call vour attention and to which the observations that we shall make on the law of the case will be conilned. The tlrst count is in substance that the prisonor, one of the ship's company of the ship Eric, owned in whole or in purt by American citizens, in the river Congo did piratically, feieuiously and forcibly oonfine and detain eight hundred negroes on hoard, with in tent to make them slaves, And tho third coant is that the prisoner, a citizen of the United States, one of the ?hip's company of the ship Kri?,a foreign vessel, en gaged in the slave trade in the river Congo, did pira tically ana forcibly confine and detain eight hundred nugiocs on board such vessel, with intent to make them Saves. Under the statute which wo have read to yon, in order to make out the ofi'enc* against the prisoner, it is necessary on the part of t he government to prove eithor that lie is a citizen of the lrnited Stales or that the vessel on which he served, with which he was engaged in the ?lave trade, belonged In whole or In part to citizens of the United States. If tho prisoner is a citizen of the United .States then the crime charged against him of forcibly detaining these nogroes may be made out, if he was on board of a foreign vessel. But if he was not a citizen of the United states, hut a foreigner, then in order to cbargo him with the crime, it must appear that It was committed upon an American vessel, or at least a vessel owned in whole or in part by citlzcns of the United States. Thet,o two iiuestlons become, then fore, material, First Wits the prisoner at the bar a citizen)' Now, proof is given by two witnesses that they knew both his father and hiBmother in Portland,Maine, before their marriage. They wore both residents of that place. The witnesses also knew them after their marriage, In the same place, and knew the prisoner, tho fruitot that marriage, when two or three years old. The quostiou is upon this testi mony, was tbo prisoner a native horn citizen, born in Portland or in the United States ? It bus been urguuil by the counsel for the prisoner that there is some evidence h -re that tho mother, after tho marriage, was in the habit of going with her husband, who was a sea captain, upon foreign voyages; and it Is insisted that, upon this state of facts, the prisoner may have been born abroad. Perhaps, tho presumption being upon the evidence that he was horn in Portland?aprimafaris awe lining madeont that be was born there?the burden would rest upon him to show thai he was born abroad. Hut we take it to be set tied law that. If bo was born in a foreign country, the father and mother being American citizens, not having ibe design of removing to a foreign country, hut touching at foreign countries in the course ol'tho voyages which the father made as a sea captain, if the father and mother Were American citizens, the child, though boru abroad, would ?tilt be regarded its an American citlzeu. Next, gentle men, as to the character of the vessel. Was she an Auio rloati vessel or owned lit whnle <ir in part by American citizens" U appears thai she was built in the United State* anil belonged to American citizens; that she made a voyage from Knglsnd to Havana, and after her arrival at Havaua it is instated that aha wag sold and transferred by these American citizens. We have tho account from Mr. Pokt, who owned throe-foui ths of her at the time of the sale. H ? states that though he was not present at the time of sale, yet one of the other part ownors, Mr. Knudson, was with tho vessel as its master, wi<l he re ceived from Havana m March, 1S60, the proceeds of the ?ale, and hs had no doubt bill she had beon sold and trans ferred. And perhaps on litis evidence it would b? dtfd cult to deny that u sale and transfer was rnado of this vessol out of those American owners, tfo far at leant as Mr. Post is concerned, and he says also that ho ac counted with the other part owners for their share of the Klce. The diUiculty in this part of the cose is this:? at it is uot enough to show that the title to this ves sel was conveyed by these American owuers la March, 1800. That is not sufficient, because before any change can be made of the character of a vessel, alter it baa been proved that she belonged to American owners, it must appear that the transfer was made to a foreigner. To whom this vessel was transferred we have no evi dence in the case. But, aa I before said to you, gentle men , it is not necessary upon this branch of the case that the prisoner should be a citizen, and also that tho veseel should be an American vessel. It Is sufficient, If either of thees facts exists, for the commission of the crime charged la the indictment.- This brings us, gentlemen, to the morils of the case; aud the question is, is the prisoner guilty or not of forcibly confiding or detaining the negroes on board of this vessel in the Conge river, with the in tent of making them slsves. This is the Issue in the caae, so far aa the real merits are involved. New, you have the evidence, on the part of the government, of Mar tin, Green, Alexander and Iletelberg, fwur seamen on hoard of the Erie, who shipped In Havana in April, 1900, a short time after Uiis alleged sale and transfer. They have detailed to yon the circumstancee of their employ ment aa ssasoen, the cargo with which the vessel was laden at that port?some 150 or more bogabeade of liquor, a number of barrels of pork and beef, bags ef beans, bar rels of bread and rice, some 1M bundles of sbuoks, wMh a oorreepoodtng number of hoops,for the purpose of being subsequently manufactured Into barrels or casks. New It may be material in this ease for yen ts inquire, In en tering upon the consideration ef this Issue, whether thto was a bqna Ode carge for lawful trade and commerce, or wbetherit was a cargo fitted out and intended to be used la the Slavs trade. The vsssst was ef some 400 tons. If this was a fitting out for ths purpose of engaging In the ?lave trade, and the prisoner at the tar bad a knowledge ef this intended service ef the vessel, then thai fact woe id accompany him to the Oonge rtver, and would have its weight and its influence upon toot minds as to ths connection that he had with die transaction that occurred (he** in receiving tbaae aegrees on board and detaining them. It may undoubtedly he assumed, without any injustice, ssa matter at law. ths prisoner being the master of the vassal at the pert or Havana and for her voyage to ths Congo river, that If this'cargo was ?tied oat for that purpose, If it was a eargo not anty pro par for that purpose but Intended for that purpose, he, as master, who had the control and charge ef ths vessel, In procuring ths oar go, is stowing It and hi shipping the ?semen, to chargeable with a knowledge of these hots. Mow, these fbar witnesses, whom yon have seen on the Stand, have detailed the progress ef the voyage from Havana to the.Congo, and the taking of these negroes on board,and starting from the river on the return voyage to Havana. Their testimony has been so frequently re ferred to by counssl, and commented upon by them, that 1 shall not take up your time in going over it. Tbe four con cur in the account which they have gtven of tbe voyage. They state that after they hod bees out some thirty days, and after having dtsoovered the provisions and freight on board, a suspicion arose In the minds of tbe sailors that the voasel might be Intended for the slave trade, and that they disclosed this suspicion to the aaptain, assign ing to him tbe reason and grounds of it The aaptain, however, disclaimed any such purpose, rebuked the sus picion. and ordered them forward. Tney all concur In stating that after the vessel arrived in the Congo river, and while the persona connected with her and those who furnished the eargo of negroes were engaged in putting the negroes on board, tbe captain continued In ooinmand of her, so far as they saw. That he exercised the same oontrol over the vessel, her management and the putting on board of tbeae negroea, aa he bad previously exor cised In the course of the voyage. Tbey also state that after tho negroes were put on board, they were called aa and were applied to for the purpose of ascertaining Whether tbey would continue to serve as seaman oa the return voyage, and were told that If thsy weuld, they should be paid a dollar a bead tor every bears landed at Cuba. They also state, especially some of them, that the prisoner gava a direction for hoisting the anchor, and directed tbe oouree of tbe vessel when she came out of tbe river. These are the material facts which have been testified to by the witnesses for tbe prosecution. On the part of the prisoner you have the testimony of the first and second mates, who, in all these rsspects, with, perhaps,one exception, coatradlet these four wit ?*????. Tbey state that after the arrival of the vesssl and tbe discharge of the eargo, the prisoner no longer exercised any oontrol over tbe maaMsmsnt of the ves sel, and that the control of the vessel end her navigation was passed over to tbe haads of another person, first to Mr. Hill, whs died, and afterwards ts Mr. Manual, whom they regarded aa the captam of the vesasl, and that sub sequently tba prisoner had no management or oontrol aver bar. One of them, the mate I think,states that he was present when tbe seamen were applied to, with the view of ascertaining whether they wooM serve on the return voyage, and bis statement differs from the account given by tbe eeamen In this' bs f ye that the prisoner applied to the seamen on < tbe owners of tbe veeeel.and that aa agent or on i half of the owners, holding a letter In hia hand at ?> time, which purported to be an authority, be T"sde i offer to them tor tbe purpose of engaging tbem i is tbe only discrepancy, so far aa regards that fact' i nod to by tbe seamen. Now, as I before stated to If the prisonsr at ths bar, aa maeter of thie veaeel ?vena, bad a knowledge that she was fitted eut <l>ed and provisioned on a voyage to tbe Congo river' 9 coast of Africa, for the purpnee of engaging in the' t: ads, the fact of hia entering upon that voyage ting the vessel to a fbrelgn coast, remaining in niMif back with her, or having started to come /ithber before she was captured, this previous dge of tbe prisoner, and his engagement to navl e vessel for tbst purpose, will have its influence k. 'ic purpose for which be was found upon thu vessel <>>ngo river at tbe time the negroes were put a d , and it is entitled to whatever weight y<iu innk it deserves la aiding or supporting the tes - of tbe four seamen, and will raise the quits >r your consideration and decision whether or , > transfer was not a part of ths original plan of lg out this engagement of tbs vessel iu the slave aud aa >uch colorable and not bona JiAr This, or, Is a question for ^ourijonsi'l^raUgi ruination. Now we hive said that in order to sustain tho Obarge against the prisoner up< n this crime, it mull ap l>ear that thuso negroes wore forcibly confined and de tained on board that voxeel, for tlio purpose of making them slaves?far the purpose of bringing I hem to Cuba or elsewhere to make thorn slaveo. This word "lord bly' which la a material element In the crime charged, doea not moan physical or manual force. Even iu cite crime of robbery, in which force la a pe collar dement of the orime, it being the taking vio lently the property of another from his person, need not be accompanied with or consist of actual force? any conduct on the part of the offender, the robber, putting the person deprived of his goods in bodily fear and terror, In equivalent to ac tual force. And so in this case. These ne groes were collected at the pi :ce where they were put on board in barracoona, and were there under re straint by those persons, who furnibhed Ite m at the ship's aide. They were in bondage at the time, and under the contiol of these persona, who transferred them to the vossel. They came upon the deck of the vessel in that condition, au<l it would lie strange indeed if it was made necessary by the law tint It should be shown that they made personal physical resistance at the time against being put on board and detained on board under all these circumstances. It is sufltctent that they wore under moral restraint and tear?their wills controlled by this superior power oxercised over their minds and bodies; and any person particl|iating In that forcible detention? that sort of detention?is a principal, participating in the guilt of the offence. Then as to the Intent of making them slaves. This, undoubtedly, is a question of fact for the Jury. You must find it, but you can flud it as an in ference from the surrouiuling circumstances attending their being put on board and forcibly detained on board. If any othor purpose, any lawful purpose,had b 'etishown to you by the evidence in the case, undoubtedly it would have been porlinont and satisfactory for the pur pose of rebutting such a presumption of intont. But in the absence of any such evHence, It is for you, gentle men, to say whether the inference is warranted by the testimony. Gentlemen, I think 1 am through with all tli ? observations that I doem it advisable to submit to you. 1 will call back your minds to the material questions, so that you may look into the case with intelligence and comprehend the real issue involved iu the ra-e, and llut Is?Were these negroes that were put on boaid the Erie, in the Congo river. In August, 1880, forcibly detained or confined, with the Intention of making tliem slaves, and did the prisoner, on board of the vessel at the time, par ticipate iu that confinement and detention? I) ho Uid, then he his guilty of this offence, under the statute. If be did not, tlien he is Inn cent. The jury, after a short ab seuce, returned a vordkit of guilty. Til* Tammany Regiment al Unit's Bluff. TO THI KDiTOH OK THK UKKAI.D. Camp Ltom, Nsar Pooi csviixi, ltd., Nov. 2,1861. There is neither pleasure nor profit in a newspaper | controversy concerning official acts; h.:t ?h >u ouo's cha racter ia ruthlessly assailed, it is a duty ho owes to him self, his friends and to posthumous reputation to inalto an explicit refutation through the same channel in which the assault make* its first appearanco. Conscious of the entire falsity of the too apparent inuendoes a:.d direct as sault upon the Tammany regiment contained in whit purports to be tho official report of Colonel Hinks, of the Massachusetts Nineteenth regiment, in relation to the battle of Ball's KlulT, our self res[iect, our regard for the good opiaion of the friends who have s< generously con fided iu us, and a sensitive regard for the fuir repaid oi the bravo and true ram under our r spoctlve commands, alike demand an early denial of the base calumnies contained therein. Justice uud the truth of h story demand that some of the more glaring miss Litem nts f>hauhl bo |pociflca.ly referred to, though it is difficult to particularise wh?re misstatements so gene a ly prevail. The facts iu rela tion to the occupation o! Harrison's Island are briefly thuso:? ? Early Monday forenoon, the 21st alt., ila|or Bowu relieved the companies of tho Tmiinany regiment then on picket (eight in number), a j I marched tiiutn on double quick to Conrad's Kerry. The two remaining com panic* were burned to tho same destination under com mand of Captain Hofg, tin arriving opposite Harrison's Island, about two miles below Uie furry,Mi^or Do we as sumed, by orders, the sU)*>rlntondouco of tho transporla tion of troops from the Marylanshore to the island. This arduous task, rendered doubly a> by the inadequate means furnished, waB porlormed entirely by members of the Tammany roglmout, under the super vision of Major Bowu aud Lieutenant Abbott, Colonel lliuks neither advising, directing uor assistiUK iu the perplexing and annoying labor. This duty w.is pur formed faithfully until wo loaruod that the day bod gone against us, iuid tli j)? Ht running from the island to iho Virginia nln re hail boen flwampod. 'Minn wo leamo?J ilia I Colonel llluks, of tho M uma>;Ii .solu. XlUeteenth, had *r rived ami had a-numed coinmind of tlio troops n the inland, when scarch was immudiaii ly instituted lor hiiu, for the pur|xme of devising somo means lor the tran*H back from tb?

On applying to him. however, to know what should bo done in the premises, iho application wax mm with a curt, uBfecling and supercilious ro*|s>nse from the li;s of Col. H., who manifi'tfttd no intTPSt in tho matter. Thus thrown upon our owu resources, the companios of the Tammany regiment then oa the island were placed in thr iatrenci meuts, wheie they remained all night, during a chilling storm, until the forenoon of tho uext day, when, dei-ming it uns'?r? to leave exposed the shores of the Potomac for three or lour mUea be fore an oxultant enemy, Major Howe, as a prudential measure, ordered tho Timmany companies, hitherto 011 picket, to their former p^sts. ilicn, aii'., not until then, was Col. Hinks' regiment called upon to do a particle of duty, either In guarding the island or taking care of the wounded. The men of the In in many regi ment manifested throughout the most steadfast devoted nean, nor did any number of them, as Oil. Hlnka plainly intimates,evlnoe the remotest disinclination to do duty on the if'and, though almost famishing for want of nourishment, and chilled to the bone by the inciemonl blasts of wind and rain. With the Massachusetts Fifteenth and Twentieth, Tali fbrnlaSecond, and the Rhode Island Third battery, who fought side by aide with tho Tammmy in the fierce and sanguinary conflict which res illo<l so disastrously, wc are willing to leave our reputation, confident that we will receive from these brave compatriots the highest meed of praise. F IN A N cfA L^A ND COMMERCIAL. Sunday, Nov. 10,1861. No change ia the course of trade has yet de veloped itself. Up to the present date onr ex porta of produce and merchandise excccd our im porta by nearly three millions of dollars, and ?very veaael la port ia at once taken up to carry food to Europe. Nothing but the impossibility of moving freight to the seaboard, after the close of ?canal navigation, will arrest the flow of produce to Europe. Our importations are swelled just now by the raccipt of foreign woollen* for the troops' Oar New England manufacturer??whose memo rable protest against the clothing of* our soldiers, except with their cloths, has bet* published in all the Journala? have bean outgeneraled by the War Department, and it ia to be hoped that the blan ket* which they refhaed to sell, except at a high profit, may remain on thoir hands. The foreign blankets, aa a general rule, are very superior to theirs. The tables for the week and year to date are as follows:? boons. tbrtiuum*. 1869. 1800. 1801.

This average was a rising on?, and on Monday nearly a million from Califor nia went into bank. On Thursday the banks paid into the Bub-Treasury $3,300,000 ia coin. There was but one call upon them daring the week for ten per cent of the seoood $60,000,000 loan. These figures wffl serve as a reliable basis for an estimate of the amount of specie which will be shown to morrow. It is the aim of the Sob-Treasury to have the receipts and disbursements of the Sub-Trea sury balance each other, so that, on the one hand, the government may alwsys have a working bal ance here to its credit, while, on the other, the spe cie reserve of the banks is not needlessly diminished. Under the operation of this system the specie fund held in bank and Sub-Treasury hera can suffer no diminu tion, export by a foreign drain or shipments to the interior. The formor, we know, does not exist; the operations of the latter can only be temporary. We have sent from New York, In the past throe months, something like $5,000,000 to Chicago, 8t. Louis, Washington and Western Virginia. As, however, the internal exchanges rule uniformly in favor of New York, it is a mere question of time when this coin will return to this city. 8o far as the general prosperity of the country is concerned , t n? <.?u iu<uiou4 more of tbo gold now lying idle in oor bank vaults could be dis tributed throughout the country. The loans last Monday showed a further decreaso of $3,247,02'! being a decrease of over $12,000,000 in three weeks. Even this vigorous contraction fails to re* fleet the actual amoant of the popular subscrip* tion. During his recent viBit to this city Mr. Chase stated that the popular subscription to the 7.30 Treasury notes amounted to about a million dollar** daily, the amount received at New York affording no guide to the operations of the government agents in New England, Pennsyl vania and the West. The subscriptions would have been more liberal here but for the red tape ar rangements of the Treasury Department, by which a monopoly of the one-fifth per cent was granted to six individuals. The six were well chosen, and have done well as a general rule. But if, instead of confining the agency to these gentle men, every banker who was willing to reoeive sub scriptions had been recognized as an agent, the amount received at the Treasury would have been considerably larger, As it is, a successful landing on the Southern coast, or a substantial victory on the Potomac, would impart an impetus to the po pular subscription. Quite a number of our wealthy men have not subscribed a dollar as yet. As soon as they see that the triumph of the government is assured, and that the 7.30 notes arc ua substantial a security as the bonds of the United States were before secession was heard of, they will haston to subscribe. The money mirkct is easier than it was a week Ago. The effort of lenders to mark up demand loans to seven por cent has faile d again, and money can now be borrowed everywhere at six. First class paper rules al ti% a 7; single names, strictly prime, at H a 10 per cent; while jobbers' paper, of a lower grade, ranges from 1 per cent a month up wards. It is fiur to presume that the bulk of the losses of our merchants through the repu diation of Southern indebtedness has now been realised, and that houses which have fairly siood their ground up to this time can no longer be justly regarded with suspicion. As to the future of the money market, there is but one opinion. Money canuot rise abovo 7 per cent in open market so long as trade remuins in its present condition, and so little business is done on credit. It is not generally supposed, however, 1 bat money can rule for any length of time much below 7 per cent, so long as the government pays 7.30 for all amounts which aro offered. The foreign exchange market is in a condition of uncertainty. It closed yesterday quite firm for bankers' bills on London at 107% a %, and for bankers' bills on Paris at 5.30 a 6.31%, with very few bills offering at the lower figures. The firmness of the market, however, arose less from any briskness in the inquiry for bills than from an unwillingness of banker? to sell. Weave rapidly approaching a season when shipments of grain must be largely rcduccd. Contrary to custom . we shall have no cottou or tobacco to send for ward during the winter. The supply of exchange will consequently be very limited, and bankers are naturally unwilling to enter upon the winter season w ith an adverse balance on the other side of the water. If by any chance a succcsful land ing at the South should lead to the opening of a cotton port, exchange would rapidly fall, as there I is uo inducement lor any increase in our imports at present. Otherv, ifte the opinion of experienced merchants appears to be that the exchange market will remain inactive for some time to come, and that rates will rather rise than fall.

As a general rule, stocks are scarce, and the bears find difficulty ia effecting their de liveries. Bat the public appear to have neglected tho Stock Exchange pending the suspeuM* in regard to the naval expedition. The prevailing notion In the street is that disasters?unless they were over, whelming? would not operate to depress prices as much as successes would tend to inflate them, reopleseem, in fact, more hopeful then they were. They think they sec their way to tho end of the war, aud are not inclined to sacrifice their pro perty at war priccs. In some stocks on the list there has been a good deal of realizing since last week. Many operators in Pacific Mail had fixed - upon par as a good point at which to realize pro fits, and accordingly, when the stock touched that point, they sold out. Hence the price has f allen back fr?m par to 9h% a 99. There is no reason to suppose, however, that this very mer curial stock has reached its highest point. The earnings of the company are larger than they have been for years, and if the dividends are kept down to twenty per cent annually, the only reason for this policy is that tho directors wish to accu mulate a handsome*surplus. Exclusive of the pro lit on tho chartcr of tho Baltic and Atlantic, it is believed that the company is earning forty per cent on tta capita). Toledo has changed hands in large amounts during the week. The road ia doing rather better than last year, and ne gotiations are Ggain on foot which may lead some morning to the discovery that the floating debt of the company has been disposed of and that divi dends are about to be resumed. Nothing further has been said about the dividend on the Galena; tiie money for its payment is said to be on hand. Burlington and Quincy has risen 3 per cent during the week. It seems to be generally supposed that the end of the pending imbroglio in which this road is concerned will be the acquisition by the Bur lington and Quincy road of the road from Gales burg to Burlington at a rate which will make its whole lino of 2?0 miles average something like $36,000 a mile. On this cost the friends of the property reckoned that the company could pay 10 per cent dividends annually. Among State stocks, Missouris continue active, the price averaging from 43 to 44 per cent?at which rate the whole State debt could be pur chased for $10,000,000. Speculators seem to think that Gen. Hunter will not need to fight any battlea to cet Missouri straight, and that Governor Gamble, at the next meeting of the Legislature, will be enabled to present an exhibit which will prove the capaeity of Missouri to meet the interest on her debt regularly. It constitutes, as is known, a first mortgage on railroads, in actual operation, which have coat $39,000,000 to build. Several holder* of Erie preferred stock are dis cuaaing a project fer the retirement of the assess ment scrip and conpoaa held by trustees, ander the reorganisation of thia company. These are its only liabilities presently dne, and alone stand be. tween the holders of the preferred shares and an immediate dividend upon the same. Their present form is anoh as greatly to impair their value, as shown by the fact that sales have been recently made at the Stock Exchange as low as 69. It ia in the power of the company, by funding them, at once to give them a much higher value, and in this way greatly to advantage their holders and remove the only remaining drawback upon the credit and standing of the company. Such n step conse quently wonld be most beneficial t<> all parties concerned. If the company would agree to fund this indebtedness, in, say ten year income bonds, payable $50,000 annually, by lot, many of the holders of it would gladly make the exchange. Many of them are likewise holders of the preferred shares, and wonld willingly take tho bonds to be 1 iisucd in proportion to the shares they nuid. it Is probable there is not a single holder of thia class of stock that would not gladly do the name if it would roraove thia debt, as by tiio 1st of Jauuary next it will probably only amount to 8 per cent of the preferred shares. This indebtedness being re moved, we may safely make the following estimate of the gross and net earnings of the company for the present dscal year:? Gross earnings $0,600,000 Exponses, sixty -six percent 4,333,333 Net earning*, thirty three per cent $3,led,067 I)<" uct Interest on funded debt. ....$1,378,440 Deduct dividend ou preferred sharui 6e0,0iX> 1,988,440 Surplus after payment of intcroat and dividend on prof erred shares $228,327 This cannot be considered an over estimate of the earnings for the present fiscal year. They are only a trifle greater than those for 1856-7, while the increase for the first month of the present year is nearly $100,000. The traffio of the road was never so great as at present, and the prospec * for the future never so good. There is produce enough in the country, seeking a market at high prices, to keep the road fully employed for a year to come. As the Mississippi is closed by tho blockade, all tho produce of the West must not only be sontto market over our great lines of pub lic works, but that section of the country must also be supplied over them with an immense amount of merchandise formerly received through the Missis sippi river. Hence their rapidly increasing busi. ness. Thus far it has been chiefly in one direction? outward bound. The return current is now set"

ting in, which must swell into a vast volumo. The railroads connecting the interior with tide-water will hereafter have all they can do in both direc tion at remunerative prices. The Erie Itailroad commences itH new career at a most favorable juncture. Let its financial correspond to its busi ness position, and with Rood management notonly (.?art dividends oil its preferred stock bo paid, but upon its common stock. It is the duty of the direc tors, as we have no doubt it will be their pleasure) when they come to look at the subject, to take a step so manifestly for the interest of all parties. Another reason why the funding of the debt refer red to cun be made with entire safety,is the valuable property which the company, through the Long Dock Company, own at Jersey City, which is not wanted for I fie business of the road. This, in a few years, will probably produce a sum much larger than tho amount of bonds proposed to be issued. CITY COMMERCIAL. REPORT. SAiTRnA>, Nov. 9?6 P. M.
