The Rebel infantry was then brought forward to the attack, whereupon the brigude (Schoouma ker's) retired, after having nearly expended thir ammunition, slowly beforo the enemy's advance.

About 9 o'clock on Satur day night, Michael rurrcll, John Kane', und James Kennedy, three sailors on board the United states Btcumcr Bermuda, lying off the Navy Yard, made an attempt to dcBort, which neatly cost them their lives. They stole the row-boat attachod to the vessel, lowered it Into the water and started off. They wore noticed by the guard, who hailed them, hut not paying any attentiou they wore fired ut. Tho firing attracted tho attention of the Iloccivin(ir Ships l'rinreton and M'yomiiuj. Tho guards were summoned on deck, and about fifty vollcvs bred into the bout. Tho threo men each rc( tlied a wound one of them in the head, one in the shoulder, and one in Ihe leg. The wounds, although serious, will not provo latal.

The National t'nion UntlnYatlon meeting held In In dependence Square on Saturday evening, was Indeed a demonstration worthy of a loyal people. The Committee Issued the call only four days before the demonstration, and, considering the short notice, the ouipoiuiiig of the loyal people may be considered a spontaneous response to the call of the country. There woa no lime lo prepare the arrangements for a grand procession, 110 time to arrange new banner with sulking mottoes, Indicating the spirit-silirlug scene. In which we live; conse quently Ihe old Wide-Awake torches of 18 ill were bri nglit in'o requisition, and banners or trans parencies that had feen service on many o,-ca-hi ns were in the line. The ward processions came singly, and, with few exceptions, entered the Square tbrousb the south gateway, until the enclosure would hold no more. Tho first asso ciation that appeared on the ground was that of the Twenty-fourth Ward, ll was 9 o'clock when this procession entered the Square. At this ptriod the dillercnt Ward associations were on the near approach to the grand centre of demonstration, and, timid the blazing of pyrin suns, rockets, Itoman candles, and cheers of thousands, the mighty eddying (lowing on of Ihe great human lido, with banners and music, soon tilled Ihe square to overtiowing. The scene at this time was grand beyond description. Red, white, and blue tires shot up through the stutelr 111111 in the square, and Hags and handkerchiefs were waved from the windows of surrounding dwellings. Everybody sec Died to be in Ihe most excellent hnmor. From the general expression that fell from the lips of many in all parts of the mooting, every Tiody must liave been surprised at the vast extent of the number. Fnthuslasm is what tells In a popular meeting. The present demonstration stir patscd in this essential any that ever preceded it. Two stands were erected from widen speeches wore delivered by Hon.

The New York Timet this morning says : "The trade of the past week was but mode rately active in fotclun and domestic tuerchan diae from store. The import entriee of the former is nearly four millions in value, but we notice that the bulk of the fresh dry goods entries passed into bonded warehouse. The fluctuation in gold and violent decline near the close of the week unsettled the Corn Exchange, besides add ing to the tainencss of the general merchandise trade, liut the export clearances of produce art) nevertheless kept up on a liberal scale." ; The Chicago Tribune thus foreshadows the stringency in money, and decline in prices of produce : "The money market continues close, bat at prcKi lit all lcgitimaie calls are met by bankers a& the regular rate. Our leading banking-houses, however, anticipate a severe stringency in tha murket, as soon as the packing season shall com mence, which will be iu a few weeks. A close invest iKHtion shows that from 7,000,000 Ut frt( w,oti0 are now invented on speculation la w bixky in this city, scarcely any of which wilt, l e available for other uses bofure the first or mid die of 1-eliruary, about the time packing season clweH. There in also a large amount invested iu the same manner in wool, which will be unavail able fur Ihe uses of packers. The combined amounts will hardly lull short of 9 lO.OJO.O Hi thus withdrawn from use when most needed. In what way this vacuum is to be tilled is what now puzzles business circles."
