Fourteen Milijonb or Imposts to this port during the last week are suggestive either of a heavy spring trade or "great expectations." It appears, too, that the trade, so far, instead of being heavier, is lighter than our average Spring traffic of the last five or six years. Something of this may be charged to the extraordinary prolongation of our late severe Winter; but we apprehend that the stocks of goods on hand in the interior and throughout the country are larger thun the estimates upon which oar importiug merchants have l>een making these enormous imDortations ol the last few weeks. They have so fur turned, for the timo, the balance of trade against us that the premium on gold has been run up to a figure which, three months ago, the most daring gold gamblers of Wall street never dreamed of. But how is all this to end? What is to be clone with these immense accumulations of foreign goods added to the stocks from last year's shipments already on hand in every city and town throughout the Union? There is danger ahead, and all concerned will do well to put their houses in order. A merry dance may be a good thing, but the payment of the fiddlers is among the contingent expenses which cannot be avoided without a world of trouble.

The following special despatch to the Herald has been received from our corespondent in Barcelona by way of London : ? London, March 29, 1873. A special telegram addressed to the Herald from Barcelona, under date of the 25th inst., reports that a sharp Iwttle had just been fought between the government troops and the Carlist forces near Vich, a provincial city of Catalonia, situated thirty miles north-northeast of Barcelona, and famous for its manufacture of linen, hemp, cotton and coarse woollen fabrics. the rattle op vich, ITS inception, conduct and results. The engagement took place on Sunday,, the 23d inst The government troops were severely handled and beaten by the combined action of several bauds of Carlist insurgents, under command of General Sabulis, called indiscriminately Savnlls? a very active and efficient Bourbonist. The conflict occurred thus:?Twelve hundred infantry, sixty cavalrymen and four pieces of cannon were despatched by the government officers from Vich cn Saturday morning, the 22d inst., under command of Colonel Vega, by the northern highway, to support a convoy of supplies des tiued for Conangbell, in the mountains, on the way to Ripoll, in the province of Gerona, and distant thirty-two miles west-northwest from Gerona. TOPOGRAPHY OF THE FIELD. Conanghell lies fifteen miles north of Vieh, by the highway. All the surrounding country is mountainous, but the first half of the distance is not difficult to travel. There is enough of open space near to the road to give troops a chance for defence. Beyond this open ground the country is broken and becomes worse for field operations. The highway approaches the river Ter?which has its rise in the Pyrenees?running south and east, past Gerona to the Mediterranean. This mountain stream flows through a deep valley. The road for many miles of its course through the valley is frequently crossed by small riparian tributaries of the Ter, and is overlooked by jutting rocks, portions of the heights of St. Hipolito and St Lucia. BOB BOY TACTICS OF THE BOYAIJBTH. The Spanish troops halted for rest on Saturday night, the 22d instant, in the neighborhood of these heights, camping in the more open part of the country. Meantime intelligence of the republican military movement was conveyed to the Carlist commander in Catalonia, General Sabalis. Sabalis, who was at the moment at Maullen, on the river Ter, five miles east of the heights of St. Hipolito, sent out during the night Generals Galecran, Miret and Guin in command of Carlist forces, numbering in the aggregate 2,000'men, with orders to occupy the heights of St. Hipolito and dispute the passage of the army of the Republic. General Miret was in position by daylight, and the others, although slower in movement, soon after. The government troops continued their march. "OPEN FIBE" FROM ABOVE, IT! THE BE.VB AND ALL ABOUND. On Sunday morning, 23d instant, when they were directly under the heights, General Miret*s men opened fire on the cavalry and advanced infantry. Vega's soldiers suffered, but ne mougm, mai me ntiacKing pariy was sniau in number and would be scattered after the exchange of a few shots. He consequently pushed on. Soon there was a fire all around him, with the discharge of musketry increasing iu severity. AS IMPETTTOtrS CHARGB. The Carlists then, abandoning the position of their natural defences, assailed the government troops, who opened ranks immediately, being taught a lesson of caution by their sudden losses. The fighting became desultory for a time, and was continued until the republicans seemed to have the way clear. At that juncture the other Carlist detachments, under Galceran and Guin. etuue ui> aud >, SUNDAY, MA HUH 30, 1 attacked the loyulists with <jreat impetuosity. There was a very hard fi?ht. A GENERAL KILLED. General Galceran, of the CarliHt party, fell mortally wounded and lias since died. RETREAT OF THE REPUBLICANS. The tide of buttle turned against the government troops, who gnve wuv, und, being pushed hard, retired, somewhat precipitately, from the field. Encouraged by this the Carlists followed up their advantage. They were checked occasionally at the open places by the government artillery, hut as the Curlists could follow behind the hills to points which commanded the highway and might thus cut oft' their retreat and isolate the Spanish column, the commander did not venture to rely on this advantage, but continued to rutin until he was supported by reinforcements of troops from the garrison at Vich, when the Curlists, in turn, retired to their positions. HEAVY LOSSES. The losses incurred in the engagement can be only guessed at, but they are much heavier titan those suffered in uny previous collision of the belligerents during the present war. MUNICIPAL HUBRENDEll. Ripoll, the place for which the government supplies were intended, has since surrendered to the Carlists. THE CAltLIHT ADVANCE AND LOCAL OAIN. From Ripoll the Carlists are marching on Berga, lying west northwoat of Barcelona, an important stronghold, filled with military stores. Berga is the key of Catalonia. It was an important position during the Thirty Years' War. The garrison will probably abandon the place in view of the advancing Carlists. ON THE LINE OF EBBO. Since the appointment of Maldonado as commander in Navarre, General Derregary has cut the line of railway between Pampeluna and Vittoria, blowing up threa bridges at Pampeluna. The positiou will likely become untenable also and fall into the hands of the Carlists, who have seized the government stores deposited in the suburbs. The Carlist strategy aims to move by the Aragon and Legre Rivers and occupy the line of the Ebro. Vich tuid Gcrona will be flanked by the capture of Berga.

During the session of the National Assembly at Versailles to-day there was an excited debate over Prince Napoleon's petition praying for the restoration of his rights as a citizen and remonstrating against his illegal expulsion from Franco. Minister Dufaute, on the part of the government, refused to accept the special committee's report on the subject, which was conservative in character, and, by implication, censured the government. He argued that the Bonaparte princes rejected the I decree which had deposed their dynasty, therefore it was Impossible to treat them as mere citizens. He spoke In terms of scathing contempt of the roup d'etat on which the power of the late Rmperor was founded. M. DeDevre. on behalf of the commltiee. renu dialed any Intention of censuring the government, and defended the report.

The Pennsylvania Central Beats the Baltimore and Ohio. Physical Force and a Destruction of Property Threatened. PnTSBURfi, Pa., March 29, 1873. Two "mighty corporations," the Pennsylvania Central end the Baltimore and Ohio, are at war, Bid an engagement in which bloodshed is likely to esult is momentarily apprehended. It appears that l short time ago an attempt was made By the Southvestern Railroad to effect a connection with he Mount Pleasant branch of the ConnellsvtUe tailroad at Fountain Mills, a small Htation >etween Bradford and Mount Pleasant. TheSouthvestern, which Is but the Pennsylvania Central, completed its track to Fountain Mills, and desired .0 makp the connection; but this was not agreen)le to the Connellsville Company, whlcli is the Ualilmore and Ohio. Accordingly the latter corporaion massed a large forco or men at the Mills and checkmated the operations of the Southwestern Company. Finding that it was impossible ;o carry their point, tlie latter company ran their iriu'k across the Mount Pleasant branch down 0 the terminus. Bur, though the Southwestern Jompany were worsted in this encounter they were not defeated, and kept a sharp look out on die Connellsville company, in order, If possible, to catch the latter off guard. Yesterday A. O. Llnsmnn, President of the Hradord and Mount Pleasant, road, issued an order to die effect that the Connellsville Railroad had for"elted all right to their road, and that the directors would, therefore, take possession of and run it to Bradford. Tho issuing of this order raised great, excitement, as it was at that, point that the act had hcen consummated which transferred a whole line of road Iroin the possession of the Connellsville Company. Tom Scott arrived on Thursday and went, down ?n tho Southwestern road (Tom Greenshurir. and the Initiated knew ttiat a movement, of some kind was in contemplation, and accordingly were on the qui vine lor developments. The Connellsville ,'ompany, strange to say, were unaware tliat a direct movement was Intended, and took no preean;lons to concentrate men enough on their leased oad to protect their interests. About two years igo ttie I'lttstiurg, Washington and Baltimore Company leased from the owners of the Mount i'leusant oad that, concern for ninety-nine years. Tils gives lie Connellsville Company a connection with the dounf Pleasant and Central and control of the exvnRive freight, business of that region. The terms of the lease were, in effect, that the lessees of the road were to pay to the owner of the Mount Pleasant, iranch six per cent per annum on the stock, and the Connellsville people were to have exclusive ontrol at these terras. The owners of the road were Israel Painter, the Overholts and A. O. I'lnsinan, the latter being manager and controlling the greater part of the stock, and, consequently, he road. These gentlemen arc well known capitalists of this section of the country, and the [ ennsylvanla road had an eye on this territory, ind. controlling, as It does, the .Southwestern, naturally its interests were identical with those or the latter corporation. A private understanding had been arrived at between Tinsman and the magnates of the "Big Corporation a line of action was agreed upon. The Southwestern, under the plea that they ad not. received a cent of the interest vhtch they were to receive from the connellsville road, thougnt the time had come ;o bring about a change. The directors :onslderlng the lease annulled, last ntght, after salting till the down train had passed ironi Mount Pleasant, proceeded to tear np the cnnnentfftn at Broadfonl. The Southwestern Railroad, headed by superintendent Pltcairu, one of the right bowers ?f that gigantic monopoly, the Pennsylvania Railroad, were in waiting with five locomotives and a number of passenger and freight rars to take immediate possession of the road. A Pull brass band was in attendance, with a great gathering of spectators, who lustily cheered the laborers as t.liey plied their picks and crowbnrs n the work of tearing up the rails. The ping worked earnestly till after dark, when the last, rail was displaced, and the branch was Reconnected with Barrett's road. This concern, under the fostering care of the mighty Pennsylvania Central, put on their passenger trains and relglit trains and to-day mo all trains on schedule time. They seem determined rt remain In possesdon of the roud, and have at each Scott station x force of 260 men camped out like an army. A car loaded with stores and provisions was despatched ID I.X10 men lO-na.V, Mini nicy navi- iiinruriiuin m hold the road at all hazards. The men are armed and prepared for desperate work If Decennary. It la the general belief that the Pittsburg, Washington and Baltimore Railroad Company will appear with a la ice force of men to-niorrow. and endeavor to regain possession and repair the damage done.
