It is to be regretted that General Hood's army

A letter from Sin Francisco thus in ntiois

"Fifteen young ladies coutonded for tho prizes
for equestrianism, aud I believe fourteen wore
awurded -, the lifierulh, not b.lDg pretty, could
not expect any. The most graceful und really
best horsewoman on the ground received the
snouJ princ, whi reus slio ought to have received
the first ; but she was not quite as pretty us oue
other, and consequently came iu lor the second
although Ike fust in tho nice. .She rode the
pacing horse 1'uritlc around tho course in 2-3S
and Square, an untl-ilyspei tic troller, iu 21 j. I
think her name is Olmsted, formerly of Chi
cago." The socoud officer In command of a bund of
Kentucky guerillas is a woman named Stto Mou
day. She dresses in male uttire, generally spot t
ing a full Confederate uniform. Vpon her head
she wears a jaunty plumed hut, beneath which
escapes a wealth of dark brown hair, falling
around and down her shoulders In luxuriant
curls. She Is possessed of a comely form, hus a
dark, piercing eye, is bold rider, and a during
leader. Trior to connecting herself with a gang
of outlaws, she was associated with the bond
commanded by the notorious scoundrel Captain
Alexander, who met bin doom a tragic death
a short time ago In Southern Kentucky, Lieu
tenant Flowers, or 6uo Monday, U a practical
robber; and many ladles, who have beeu so
unfortunate at to meet her on the highway, can
testify with what tang froid she yreseute a pistol
and commands "stand and deliver." Her name is
becoming widely known, and to the ladies it Is
always sassuclakd with, horror.

The Ftock and Gold Markets eoutinno very
much unsettled under tho vory contllcting ac
counts from tbe army, and tbe rumors of tbo
intended raid from Canada by tho secessionists
upon our Northern borders. The election com
plicutions also assist in rendering operators
caiitii.nv, and, ex. opt in tho old stocks, a general
unwillingness to assume now stock obligations is
vciy perceptible. The old bidders of Reading
bold with tenacity the sharos purchased for the
rise and the forthcoming dividend ; while a few
of tho outsldo timid disciples are inclined to
throw overboard the shares recently purchased.
After the election is over we ahull have calmer
waters and smoother sailing, when a strong
movement is predicted.

The New York Trihtme this mornlns; say :
"Money is reported active amonir stock house,
and at 7 per cent, the demand is very active. The)
City Banks are moving with prudence in view of
large drafts made by the Government upon
country depositories, which will be met a usual
by their city agents. There is no reason why so
large an ainouut of money should longer rumitia
with tbe National Hanks, to the inconvenience of
tho Treasury, and the encouragement of specu
lators. In mercantile paper no change."
