Wabhinutom, Nov. 2jl Minister Romero has received the following: i era Cruz, Mur. 1. llffit;.—Maximilian has *ot saijed yet, nor is it likely that lie will sail sotni, as the French would not allow him to leave until he signs a formal abdication. A little in discretion of the commander of the Austria® frigate Ooudaln has been the cause of thiSr-* When Maximilian left Mexico Gen Bazaihc thought he came lo Orizaba merely on a little excursion, as he had gone to Cuemazaca a*fl other places. Day before yesterday the rotn mandesof the Dnndalo received a dispatch midnighr iroin Maximilian, ordering him ,jp have his frigate ready yesterday at 5 o’clock V. M, at which time Maximilian was expected!® be here and wanted to sail at once. As sow as the Austrian commauder received this dtt patch he called on M. Pcyroti, the French com mander,to take leave of him, communicating lo him the disjiatcli lie had received, and asking orders for Trieste. M. Peyrou sent at once tfa s information to Geu. Bazaine, who dispatch* 1 instructions by telegraph to the French cot i manders at Orizaba, Cordova and Vera Cm s, not to allow Maximilian to escape, and address ed, himself to the Arch Duke, stating he kne v of his plan to fly from Mexico, but lie could n ft • be permitted to do so unless lie would formally abdicate. The reason of this conduct is, th t should Maximilian leave without a f rmal ab dication, the position of the French would very difficult and ridiculous, while if he ab* - cates in their favor, they will be released fro their engagements towards him. It is said that Maximilian will be obliged to return to thcci)#. of .Mexico and submit to Bazaine’s terms. , New Vouk, Nov. 20. The Herald’s special San Francisco dispatch of to-day says: “On the lllth of October Coiif na passed the outer French lines in the rear** Mazatlan, with 400 men, and held his grouM for six days, when the French sent in a flagftf truce requesting a cessation of hostilities, »M promising to evacuate on the 24th.

A prize fight took place at Johnson’s Land ing, below Alexandria, this morning between Mike Carr, alias'English, of Washington, and W. Hi AVhite of Baltimore. After twenty-1 four rounds the fight terminated in a dispute as to who was the winner. White had a shoulder dislocated. Rear Admiral Gordon of the South Atlantic squadron, reports from Rio Janeiro, October 8tli, as follows: The allies made a disastrous attack on Senpoli ou the route to Haumaita, in which they acknowledge a loss of 5,000 men. Gen. Flores with the Uruguayan troops liail withdrawn from tbo irontier and the ironclad fleet had been roughly handled. Admiral Gordon believes the Paraguayans will hot gain colitTol of Paraguay for some time to come. U. S. steamer Mystic arrived at Rio Janeiro October 5th, from Pernambuco. The Lacknwaua bad sailed for the Pacific. Tlie Sliawinut would leave for home on the 10th. The Monocaey. Commander Porter, arrived at Pernambuco October 10th.

Arrival of Quern Itninin ns (lie Sandwich lulamlv—(;■ eat tlnlc in the Chinn Seas— / Annexation of Victoria to the United Mfales. San Francisco, Nov, 19. The barque Seminole brings Honolulu dates to Nov. 2d. Queen Emma arrived at Honolu lu ou the steamer Vanderbilt, Oct. 22d, after a passage of nine days from this port. She was greeted with a royal salute, to which the Van derbilt and Prussian war ship Vannetta res ponded. Thousands of people assembled to greet her in landing. The Vanderbilt drew twenty feet of water and entered the harbor of Honolulu easily. The great gale at Hong Kong was folt seri ously at sea and many vessels are missing. Advices received from Tahiti report the loss of tlie iron ship Bellisima on . the reef near Palmerston’s Island, about March 28. All hands perished. The steamer Golden Age sailed to-day for Panama with $783,000 in treasure, of which $780,000 are for New York. Among her pas sengers is Gen. Rufus Ingalls. Victoria advices say the question of annexa tion to the United Stales is under discussion. The Victoria Telegraph newspaper says Eng land gives no assistance, and saddles us with a cumbersome form of government against our wishes. The Federal authorities spend hun dreds of thousands of dollars every year on their Territories and ask the inhabitants to l>ay hut a trifle of the outlay in consequence of its infancy. Every British colony is devot ed to chronic discontent, culminating often in armed outbreaks, while in the United States territories scarcely a remonstrance is heard.— Omfcountry is killed by extravagant men at the head of affairs, while others steadily pro gress under the management of the people. A Japan paper ol October 13th says: Stal basehihad succeeded to the Tycoonite by a proclamation and would send an embassy to the. Emperor of Russia, with the object of de fining tlie boundaries, and arranging the So golian difficulties. News fiam Australia anal South America. New York, Nov. 20. The steamer Ocean Queen, with San Fran cisco dates of the 30th ult., and Panama dates of the 12th, has arrived. Australian news to the 8th ult. had been re- I ceived at Panama. A commercial panic prevailed at Sydney.— McKiulay’s exploratory tour in North Austra lia had proved a failure, owing to heavy floods. The Hokititi murderers have been convicted and sentenced to death. Rust has attacked the growing crops, which, nevertheless, promise plentifully. The West Coast natives continue trouble some. Several skirmishes have taken place, in which the Government, forces inflicted severe punishment upon them. Tlierf was no news from the gold fields. The news from the Isthmus and Panama is unimportant. Dates from South America as late as the 30th ult. had been received. A destructive Are had occurred at Chore, Ecuador. It was reported that the Chilian Government had accepted the mediation of England and France in the Spanish and Chili war. There were fears that Peru would be withdra wn from the alliance against Spain. New rich gold mines hail been found in Chili near Copaipo. Miscellaneous Dispatches. Philadelphia, Nov. 20.

Numerous fine hands of mu sic give the display much additional interest, l he various Commanderies and Grand Com manderies of Knight Templars, in their rich and elegant uniforms, impart a degree of gorgeous ness which have probably been rarely, if ever equalled by any similar display in this country. Many magnificent banners and flags are in the procession, richly emblazoned with symbols of the order, conspicuous among which the red cross banners and flags of the Templars It is

' j Dear Sir:—In your leader of the 12th in stant, you say that I ought to make known my views and wishes with regard to the United States senatorship in prospect. I oomply with your suggestion. I shalfeertainly accept the senatorship and endeavor to discharge the duties should I be elected. And I shall he gratified to learn that our newly chosen legislature shall judge me the man for the place. I believe this fully an swers your requisition. And now allow me to add that, should the members he importuned, or button-holed, or bored, to vote tor me, or in any manner solic ited to act otherwise in the premises than as their convictions of public duty shall dictate, it will not be the fault of Yours truly, . Horace Greeley. To the Editor of The Journal, Newburgh, N. Y. The Times copies the same letter, and “sees no reason why the canvass in Mr. Greeley's be half should not be successful.” TnE Case of Lynch.—It will be remember ed that “Colonel” Lynch, the first of the Feni an prisoners tried at Toronto and condemned to death, claimed that he accompanied the in vasion of Canada simply as a correspondent of the Louisville Courier. The fact that the con ductors of that paper were not summoned to testify in his defence was considered reasonable ground for the assumption that he was not ac credited from its office; hut the following state ment of the Courier itself upholds the prisoner’s statement: “Col. Lynch was engaged to fill the place of one of our reporters, whom at the last moment, we found impossible to send. The .arrange ment was positively and distinctly made by a gentleman connected with this office, through Captain McDermott, a very worthy soldier and gentleman; hut in the hurry of the departure, Col. Lynch failed to receive his credentials.— Tire assertion that ho held a commission in the Fenian army, or was connected with them in any way’ except as a reporter, we do not cred it,’’ “Little Blue.”—The annual catalogue of Mr. Weston’s excellent family school for hoys, at Farmington, indicates continued and de served prosperity.

Editob :—I noticed in Monday's issue an article on “Policemen and Pistols,” signed “IT.” the tendency of which is so utterly subversive ot official efficiency, and, therefore, of public tranquility, as to merit a reply. Taking for his text the remark of Gen. Sheridan at New Or leans, “that peace would have been restored in five minutes if the policemen had put up their pistols,” (the rebels said the same when the “policemen” of the “nation” came down among them to enforce the Jaw ^ud restore order), ha goes on to infer that, as our officers sometimes carry pistols, they may as foolishly and devil ishly use them as the police “thugs and rebels” did iu the former city. To say the least, “U.” was very unfortunate in the ohoice of his text—a case which has no parallel, either in the past or present, nor is likely ever to occur at the North in the future, and, therefore, is not very com plimentary to the moral character, intelligence and wisdom of our officials, from the Mayor down. “U.’s” idea of what a policeman ought to be is precisely that which the rumseller thinks the temperance man ought to be, viz: “A mor al swasionist,* for he says: “Their duty is not to fi'jht offensively, but to keep the peace—to arrest and hold offenders, not to shoot, nor to wound them in any manner.” I take it that “U." is an unbeliever in the doctrine of “total depravity,” even as applied to “roughs” filled with “fighting whiskey,” and also predict his speedy conversion should he accept a situation on the police staff, and be stationed on some of the beats in tbis city for three Saturday and Sunday nights, at which times “My Lord, Whis key” holds high carnival, and his devotees, the roughs, amuse themselves in the interesting pastime of fighting each other and the “peace men.” To be serious, bow can an officer arrest and hold “offenders” without meeting force (whether muscular, vegitable or mineral,) with force, and keep the peace? Last Sunday night some villains rushed on the policemen with drawn knife, revolver and clubs, with nails driv en into them, in order to rescue a prisoner from the officers, and one of the rascals was shot, a£ ter being warned. If the “peace men” bad not had pistols, they would have been struck down instantly, and possibly killed. In a word, the log ical result of “U.’s” teaching would be to trans fer the risk ol being maimed or killed from the offenders to the officers, who are the represen tatives of law, order and peace, and destroy all confidence in being protected by the rightfully constituted protectors of the public. There is not an officer, from the Marshal down, even now, especially of the night police and watch men, who does not, at times, have to take his life in his hand in the performance of his duty. Should the views of “U.” prevail, there would be no “peace men” nor peace, unless the military patrolled with them; for the knowledge that pistols were not allowed to officers by popular consent, would give to all grades of villains an immense power for evil of all kinds, and no man’s life would be safe. P. p. Peabl Stbeet Univebsalist Society.— At a meeting of the members of this Society, held last Friday evening, it was voted to dis pose of their lot on the comer of Congress and Pearl streets, and whatever other property be longs to the Society and to disband. As there are many persons who wish that a Universal ist Society may be established in the lower part of the city, it is probable a new Associa tion may be formed, who will purchase the old lot and erect a church thereon. Masonic.—At the annual meeting of Port land Lodge, which was holden at Masonic Hall on Wednesday evening, Nov. 14th, the follow ing officers were elected: Henry P. Deane, W. Master; Geo. E. Taylor, Senior Warden; Seth B. Hersey, Junior Warden; William O. Fox, Treasurer; Eben Wentworth, Secretary; W. H. Soule, Senior Deacon; John P. Hobbs, Jun ior Deacon; Jona. M. Heath, George E. Taylor, Wm. Curtis, Finance Committee. Mr. Editor The exhorbitant price asked fat milk in this city is unjust and unbearable. Do the milk venders understand it is the poor, not the rich, that they are persecuting in this rise on milk? Eight cents is all milk ever was and can be worth, and it looks like taking the advantage of our necessities, so to increase the price. One or YOUR ScnscRiBEBS.

Pennell,'of Cape Elizabeth, of the firm of Skillin, Small & Co., was severely injured yesterday by the falling ot a stick of timber from the new store of Hen ry Bodge, in process of crcotion. Braking Jail—Four PrUotiera Eica^cd.— Four prisoners—Frederick Richards, Samuel Neville, Charles Brainerd and Melvin Kennis ton—confined in the county jail, made their escape from the institution Monday night and have not since been beard from. Kenniston and Brainerd occupied a cell to gether, and have, undoubtedly, been maturing their plan for sometime. They contrived by a very simple process to unlock their cell door and then proceeded down stairs to the dun geon cells, and liberated Richards and Neville. They then offered to release all Hie other pris oners if they would assist in escaping, hut the offer was declined. The .scamps after getting out of their cells went into the poor debtors’ room, from which escapes have heretofore been effected and which is now unocupied. Taking a portion of an iron bedstead which was in the room, they pried the bars of the window apart so that they nearly sprung from their sockets, and made sufficient space to pass themselves through—deadening the sound a3 much as pos sible by spreading bedding upon the floor. Af ter breaking out the glass of the window they let themselves down to the ground, a distance of some twentvfept, by means of a rope and escaped. ^ Neville was in jail fur picking packets and was bound over to the November term of tlie Supreme Judicial Court. Richards was in for counterfeiting and was waiting trial at the IT. S. Circuit Court at its present session. Brainard had been sentenced to one year in the State prison, at the July term of the Su preme Judicial CouM, but the sentence had been commuted to imprisonment in jail. Kenniston had been s> nteneed at the July term to eighteen months in the State prison, for breaking and entering a store in Bridgton. His sentence had also been commuted to im prisonment in the jail. He was the only one the four who belonged in this.State. Brainard belongs in Canada; Richards is supposed to belong in New York. No one knows where Neville belongs. The attention of the County Commissioner was called to the locks on the cells two weeks since by Sheriff Parker. They will have dif ferent locks put on the doors. It is supposed that Richards, before he was confined in the dungeon cell, had discovered the means of unlocking the doors and had been out of his cell frequently at night, pre paring for an escape. Sheriff Parker offers a reward of $300 for the capture of the prisoners. A full descrip tion of them can be obtained by reference to his advertisement. Periodicals.—Harper’s Magazine for De cember, and Godey’s Lady’s Book for Decem ber, have been received at the bookstores of Messrs. Short & Loring, corner of Free and Centre streets, Messrs. Bailey & Noyes, No.IRt Fore street, and A. Robinson’s, No. 323 Con gress street. Also at the periodical depot of Messrs. Fessenden Brothers, Lancaster Hall. Ward 6.—Mr. Thomas Lynch was unani mously elected Alderman of Ward 0, at the election held yesterday, to fill the vacanoy oc casioned by the resignation of Alderman Southard. Mr. Hossack voted for Jane P. Thurston for Alderwoman. Drt Goods at Auction.—The sale at Pat ten’s room of dry goods went on yesterday in spite of the weather, and wiil be continued this afternoon and every lot must be sold, no matter what it brings, weather fair or foul. Cow Slaughtered.—A cow that strayed on Commercial street Monday afternoon was run into by tho engine. The cow-catcher caught the animal and injured her so much that she ' had to be killed. THE STATE, —The Bangor Whig learns that the Passama quoddy tribe of Indians is now decreasing at the rate of about twenty per cent, every year. —We notice a paragraph in the papers that Grand Master Murray is on a tour through the State, visiting Masonic Lodges, and had ar rested three charters. It is true that Mr. Mur ray passed through the State, on his way to St. John, and improved the opportunity of visiting the several Lodges on the way and interchang ing fraternal greetings with the brethren. He did not arrest a charter, as no occasion for such a proceeding was discovered. The fraternit, understand that such public notices are dis tasteful to the Grand Master, and that such in formation was not furnished by him to any cor respondent.— Bangor Whig. Arrival of the Hibernian.—The steam ship Hibernian, Capt. Dutton, from Liverpool 8th and Londonderry 9th, arrived at this port about 7 o’clock Tuesday morning, bringing 26 cabin and 164 steerage passengeis and a Large cargo. It is the first arrival of the weekly line from Liverpool that we are to have for five months. The following items of intelligence wo gath er from the papers: Numerous Cabiuet councils were being held in London. The Times says thqy can hard ly be on reform, as the measureMn existence is scarcely likely to be in so forward a state as to permit an elaborate discussion of its details, ana it therefore presumes the attention of tliu Council is occupied by Departmental business, amongst which, the Times hopes, is included the army organization. Drafts of Dent & Co., of China, were on the 7th refused acceptance by Dent, Palmer & Co., of London. The two firms are entirely dis tinct. The engagements of the firm are rough ly estimated at three millions sterling. The partners are wealthy, and it is believed that the creditors will receive the whole of their claims. It is announced that Ex-Go’v. Eyre of Jamai ca, would be arraigned at the Central criminal court, Loudon, in about ten days, for the Ja macia murders. The case of the rebel steamers seized at Liv erpool in behalf of the United States Govern ment, was before the Admiralty Court on the 7th. It was stated on behalf of the prosecution that no case was before the Court, and that by the consent of all parties the cases would stand over, and the vessels remain as they were at Liverpool. It was believed that the matter would be privately adjusted. London Monet Market.—The market is quiet and easy. Gold is accumulating at the Bank, and the discount demand is inactive.— Further reduction in the rate of discount was anticipated the day the steamer sailed. France.—The Moniteur Du Soirsays trans port ships necessary for the conveyance of the French troops from Mexico are ready. The same journal says the Mexican government so far from entertaining feelings of anxiety or hesitation, is redoubling its efforts for carrying out energetically the task undertaken by Max imilian. Negotiations for the apportionment of the Pontifical debt were still being carried on in Paris.

H. Chappell, of New London, Conn., has communicated to Heury Grinnell, Esq., of New York, a state ment made by Capt. Morgan, of the steam whaling-bark Pioneer, of an interview with Mr. C. E. Hall, the Arctic explorer. Mr. Chap pell says: The Pioneer reached the head of Repots.* Bay, north of river Welcome, on the 2bth of July last. Here they met Mr. Hall and hi* party of Esquimaux all in good health, and at that time engaged in fishing. His faithful ad herents. Joe and Hannah, (Esquimaux) who are well known to you, with some other natives form his family or troupe. He had at that time no white man in his company. Mr. Hall was much affected, ngain to uieet familiar faces and hear news from home. He had pass ed the winter very comfortably, being thor oughly inured to the Esquimaux mode of life, and having with his resources secured an am ple supply of food. At this station he hail killed one whale last fall and another this sum mer. while deer he found iu the greatest abun dance. He had established a great many de pots of provisions, extending Sir into the inte rior, to he used in case of necessity. Last spring Mr. Hall mode a journey north west, towaril Committee Bay and King Wil liam's Land, hut found the natives of that re gion so treacherous and jealous that he wa* forced to return when within a hundred mile* of his destination. This animosity and feud i* between the different families and tribes of thu Esquimaux, who all carry weapons secretly, and do not hesitate to kill each other for any real or supposed injury. Some of them threat ened the life of Mr. Hall ami his party, and they were obliged to turn back. Mr. Hall has secured a great many relics of the Franklin exploring expedition, together with some important documents which iie be lieves to have been penned by Capt. Crozlor, and has information of the location of others, which he is determined to obtain, believing them to be of much value toward clearing up the mystery of the fate of the unfortunate sur vivors of the Erebus and Terror. Mr. Hall i* continually adding to his stock ol information, anil the object of his search being further known amoug the natives, he is constantly- gathering fresh traces and new proofs to establish previ ously-known facts. Among other things he has heard of the lo cation of a boat turned bottom up, uuder which are the dead bodies of seventeen to twenty-five white men, with their bands and teet all cut off. The natives claim that the mutilation was not done by them, but by some of the white men who were wrecked. Tho tradition of the Esquimaux is that a rebellion broke out among the survivors, who were en deavoring to reach Hudson's Bay, and that all but three were murdered; that these three re mained among tho natives, working their way toward white settlements, but they finally died before reaching them. Mr. Hall expressed his gratitude and regard for those who had aided him at home to un dertake his plans of discovery; said that ho was determined to carry out uis plans, if It could bo doni without too much expense, and conclude his explorations in that quarter tho ensuing year. He wished very much to organize a small party of six or e’giit white men, fully armed, to accompany him. He could then travel with impunity, and reach the utmost limit of his de sires. It is uot improbable that such a party cun be ma le up from the ship’s ctcwj winter ing there. The Pope’s Allocution.—The latest foreign papers received by steamer, contain the ftill text of the Pope's Allocution which has been referred to in a recent telegram from Rome.— It appears that the telegraphic summary con veyed a very inadequate idea of this important document, which reasserts in the most posi tive manner the doctrine of the temporal sov ereignty of the Pope, renews the protest, against the annexation of the Pontifical States by the King of Italy, anil denounces all thoso who took part in that proceeding. The Jour nal das Debats of Nov. 5, says of this docu ment: The event of the day is the Pontifical Allo cution upon the affairs of Italy, or rather the affairs in the whole of Europe." Since the En cyclical and the Syllabus, the Court of Rome has not pronounced words so dircfully signifi cant. We believe that this Allocution will re ceive greater importance and will produce worse effects than the documents above men tioned. The defenders of the Syllabus could say that it was a more doctrinal and abstract exposition, which did not demand a rigorous and immediate application to the events of the present time; but such language is not appli cable to-day. The last Allocution is a sum mons to Italy, and, in effect, to all the Catholic Powers, to put in practice the principles of the Syllabus—principles purely speculative. The Gold in Madoc, Canada West!—A letter in the Galt Reporter says: “On Satur day a Californian offered #1,500 for what earth he could take out of the hole in half au hour, with ho other assistance than a common gar den hoe. Air. Vennor, of Sir Wni. Logan’s staff, assisted by a watchmaker here, obtained a few (lays ago, trom two and a half pints of tbo ordinary loose earth, pure gold amounting in value to $21. The samples which have been stolen and given out of the opening—which is seven feet diameter and seventeen feet in depth —will amount, I am confident, to #1,000 or $1,200. Now, if this proves to be a regular ‘lisle,’and the vein extends north and south, allowing holes equally rich in quality and quantity to be opened up, what an incalculable amount of wealth will he realised by the Intro duction of skilled labor and proper machinery I “It this claim is not an accidental “pocket," California and Australia will be vastly behind Mailoo in point of richness in yield,—I mean In case of an individual mine.

A Rich Couple.—The London correspond ent of Saunders's Nows Letter says: The be trothal is just declared of perhaps onr very wealthiest marriageblo lady (for Miss Burdoit Coutts I look upon as already wedded to her good works), and Dame Fortune, In her bliud c.st mood lias decreed that she shall And a bridegroom uearly as wealthy as herself. £ nch will be the case in the marriage of Karl Beau champ with Miss Dnndnss-Christopher-Hami 1 ton-Nisbett, in whom eaeh patron, mic is un-» derstood to imply a fortune. Lord Beauchamp, well known in tho House of Commons as ttie staunch Conservative member tor Worcestershire, succeeded last year, by the death of his brother, to the title and estates, estimated at over forty thousand a year. But his bride is even more richly en dowed, for it is admitted that she will ultimate ly succeed to an income of more than sixty thousand a year, to sai nothing ol^an immense ami increasing amount of ready money. How came tho band of fascinating younger brothers to let slip such a prize?
