:Acadelltr of Natural Sciences.
It will be remembered by many of our
readers that an effort was set on foot, list
spring,to raise the sum of one hundred thou
sand dollars to enable the Academy. of Na
tural Sciences to erect a building better
adapted to its purposed than the one in
which its splendid collection is at present
cramped and crowded. and which is such
an eye-sore among the handsomestructures
which adorn Broad street. A prompt and
generous response has already been made
to this appeal, and rather more than half
the requisite sum has been subscribed. Be
tween forty and fifty subscriptions of one
thousand dollars each have been made,
conditioned upon the whole amount being
raised before the end of the present year.
About forty-five thousand dollars is still
needed, and but two months remain in
which to secure this most desirable object.
The Academy of Natural Sciences is well
know, as one of the most important and
celebrated scientific institutions in this
country. It has a fame throughout Europe
equal to its American reputation, and the
citizens of Philadelphia should take a just
pride and an active interest in placing it in
such a position as will extend its usefalness
and make , it architecturally, as it is scienti
fically, an ornament and credit to the city.
In Boston or New York, we are sure that
this end would be promptly secured for
such an institution, and Philadelphia must
not come behind in such a work. Although
the time remaining to secure the handsome
subscriptions already rqade is short, we
trust that it will prove long enough for the
purpose, and that the liberality of a portion
of our citizens will not be thrown away, on
amount of a lack of public spirit on the part
of others who are as able to promote this ex
cellent enterprise as those who have already
contributed to it.
Italian Opera.
The Huguenotslw as well played last even.
ing,though not so well as we have had it in
in former years, nor so well as it ,might be
by the present company, after more careful
rehearsal. Mine. Poch is scarcely at home
in the part of "Valentine," and Mlle. Ron
coni cannot sustain that of "Marguerite."
Mme. Testa was most excellent as "lar
bain," and Mazzoleni. Antonucci and Bel
lini were good in their respective roles.
Still, the Huguenots is a trying opera, and
requires more care and time in its prepara
tion than has been given to it.
This evening Crisping is to be repeated,
and we advise all who wish to see a capital
and most amusing performance to avail
themselves of this last chance. To-morrow
evening an extraordinary bill is offered, for
the benefit of Max Maretzek. La Sonnain
bula will be_performed entire, together with
Figaro's great scene in the Barber of Seville,
by Ronconi, and the magnificent fourth act
of the Huguenots, by Mme. Poch and Maz
zoleni.

WHAT Tam' MADE.—A leading politician
in one of the States in which an election has
recently taken place, has, with more disgust
than gusto, narrated the result of his efforts
to get the Fenian'vote. "During the can
vass," he confessed, "we drank limitless
quantities of whisky with the Fenian men ;
we danced at numberless balls with the Fe
nian gills; we bought Fenian bonds, wore
the Fenian green; tried to get a little brogue
Under our tongue, and posted ourselves on
the manners and doctrines of the ancient
Phoenicians. And after suffering in this
style for three months, we found, after the
election that we had'nt got a hundred Fe
nian votes in the whole State."

PHILADELPHIA, , THURSDAy, NOVEMBER 11866.
THE FEICLOX TRIALS.
Daniel *John Quinn Placed in the Dock
---His Trial Postponed Until
December---Patrick Mc-
Grath's Trial Also
Postponed.
A brief report of the progress of the
Fenian trials appears on our Sixth page.
Below we give a fuller account.
TonoNin, Oct 3L—The Fenian trials were
resumed to-day. Long beforelhe hoar ap
pointed a_large crowd congregated in the
vicinity of the county buildings, and the
Court-room was again densely crowded.
The Court opened at 12 M., Justice Wilson
presiding. Messrs. R. A. Harrison and
McNab, County Attorney, and J. Pierson
appeared for the Crown, and Mr. Kenneth
McKenzie, Q. C., for the United States Go
vernment. The Sheriff haying balled over
the jury, Daniel John. Quinn was placed in
the dock. He is a man about six feet high,
dressed in a blue overcoat, of light com
plexion, with sandy-colored hair, and ap
peared to be suffering from some scorbutic
affection, his face being partially spotted
-,with cut aneous eruptions.
Mr. Kenneth McKenzie, Q. C.—l have to
apply to your Lordship, on behalf of the
- prisoner, for a postponement of his case, in
consequence of the absence of material wit
nesses who cannot be found, and other
grounds set forth in an affidavit which is
being prepared. Your Lordship has no idea
of the difficulty under which we labor in ob
taining the necessary evidence.
Mr. R. A. Harrison—My learned friend,
although be claims to be laboring under dis
advantages, forgets entirely the trouble and
expense the Crown is put to in these mat
ters. It was the prisoner's own choice to be
ready to-day.
The prisoner was here sworn to an affida
vit in the dock.
Mr. K. McKenzie—My Lord, the follow
is the affidavit on which I ground the appli
cation. It reads as follows:
The Queen vs. John Quinn, in the Court
of Oyer and Terminer and General Jail De
livery for the United Counties of York and
Peel : Ist. John Quinn, late of the city of
Rochester, in the United States, now a pri
soner in the city of Toronto, above-named,
makes oath and says as follows :
I am informed, and believe, that, since I
was indicted at the present assizes as one of
those concerned in the invasion of Canada
in the month of June last, at Fort Erie,
i
statements have appeared n print, in the
newspapers of thlis province, particularly
those called The Globe, The Leader, and The
Daily Telegraph, published in the city of
Toronto, highly calculated to prejudice the
minds of the public against me and the
other prisoners charged with the same of
fence,and such papers, I verily believe,have
been extensively circulated, and have been
read by the witnesses who are to give evi
dence against me, as well as by the jurors
bywbom I am to be tried, and I have great
fears that the publicationof such statements
as aforesaid will have the effect of unduly in
fluencing and prejudicing the minds of said ,
jurors and witnesses, and of preventing my
obtaining a fair and impartial trial. I have
never had any intimation of the nature of
the evidence against me, and for thiareason
and because I. have been until lately en
tirely destitute of the means of making in
quiries for the purpose of ascertaining who
would give evidence in my behalf, I am not
prepared to go to trial. My attorneys have
been and are now engaged in preparing for
my defence, but I am informed and believe
that they will not have time to do so before
the time before my trial, nor in all proba
bility during the present - assizes. I verily
believe: if my trial be postponed until the
next assizes for the united counties, which,
I understand, will be held in January next,
I shall then be prepared with my defence.
Sworn to before me at the city of Toronto,
this 31st day of October, 1866.
A. FLEMING, a Commissioner.
Your Lordship has seen that the first part
of the affidavit makes allusions to the press,
which, as a powerful organ for influencing
public opinion, is in some cases exceedingly
injurious to the interestlkof certain classes.
The affidavit sets forth' that 'Litt, Toronto
Globe, Leader and tha t Daily Telegraph
have, during the progress of these trials,
publicly printed certain notes and com
ments which would be likely to prejudice
the public and influence a jury in the trial
of the prisoner. The Globe, as it is well
known, is ajournal with a large circulation
throughout the Canadas. The Leader is also
an influential sheet, and the Daily Tele
graph. The next ground that the affidavit
sets forth is to establish the prisoner's inno
cence. Under the circumstances I would
ask your Lordship to postpone the case un
til the next Assizes.
Mr. R. A. Harrison—l can assure my
learned friend that the Crown has manifested
no desire throughout the entire course of
these proceedings to press any matters
against the prisoners, or to place any ob
stacle or raise any legal impediment in the
way which might prevent the prisoners
from obtaining a just and impartial trial ;
but Ido think tat when the prisoner, at
his own desire, has nominated a day for his
trial, and that the Crown has to keep their
witnesses here at a great expense and in
convenience, all the grounds set forth are
not of that character which would warrant
the application being granted. I have read
daily the papers alluded to, and I do not be
lieve the name of the prisoner has beett
mentioned in any of the articles contained
n them.
Mr. McKenzie—Yen are mistaken. There
has; and such sentiments are calculated to
prejudice public opinion, and consequently
influence a jury; I am prepared to go on
with the trials of Drummond and Slevin to-
Mr. R.A.Harrison—The Crown witnesses
are not here.
His Lordship--The prisoner Drummonds
trial was fixed for next Monday.
Mr. H. A. Harrison—l think my learned
friend has no cause to complain. The Crown
has shown a great deal of indulgence al
ready, and these trials would be endless if
these applications are constantly to be made.
I see that the affidavit is printed. I sup
pose, therefore the same will be made in
other cases where the prisoners claim Ame
rican citizenship.
Mr. K. McKenzie—That depends upon
circumstances.
Mr. R. A. Harrison—There must be more
regularity in future; otherwise the delay of
the Court will be interminable.
His Lordship—Certainly.
Mr. McNab--The articles to which my
learned friend alludes, which he has not
read, I believe, refer to comments made on
extracts from the American press, with
which we have nothing to do. -
01311 WH.OLF. COUNTRY.
His Lordship—Will you please let me see
the papers? ' •
Mr. McKenzie here handed up copies of
The Globe, The Leader and The Daily Tele
graph, containing the statements com
plained of. His Lordship, having looked
over the file, said:
I 'must say that I have glanced hurriedly
over the articles, some of which may be in
temperate, but -the press have a perfect
right to make any comment they,choose on
a matter which is public. Therefore, that
portion of the affidavit which relies on these
grounds, Isbell overrule. The remainder
of the affidavit •is defective. Although it is
set forth that this man you speak of is a
material witness, there ismo allegation of
reasonable exertion having been made to
procure him, or any cause assigned why he
'has not been brought here, or when you
would be likely to have him here. If you
amend the affidavit so as to meet these
facts, and the Crown do not oppose a rea
sonable delay, it might possibly be granted.
The affidavit was then amended as sug
gested. Mr. 'McKenzie read the affidavit as
amended to the Court, and asked, that the
case should be allowed to stand over till
next assizes. He alluded to the fact that the
witnesses referred to were seafaring men,
whom it was difficult to find.
Mr. R. A. Hal•risan—The affidavit as
amended I consider sufficient, your lord
ship, to warrant me on the part of the
Crown, in acceding to a postponement, but
as the present assizes are likely to last for
the next five weeks, I see no cause why the
trial should be deferred till next year if the
witnesses can be obtained before.
After a consultation with Mr. McKenzie,
Tuesday, the 13th of next month, was
agreed upon to proceed with the trial.
Patrick McGrath was then brought into
court. The prisoner Is a man apparently
about 30 years of age, and about five feet
six inches high, dam complexion, well
chiseled features, and carefully trimmed
beard and mustache. He claimed to be an
American citizen. Altogether his appear
ance is respectable.
Mr. K. McKenzie made a similar appli
cation for a postponement in this case.
His Lordship—ls it your intention to
make the same application in all other cases
where the prisoners claim American citi
zenship?
Mr. McKenzie—l do, my lord, in
Morton's, Magrath's and Kane's,
and perhaps in others; but in Drammond's
and .Slevin case lam prepared to go on
to-day.
His Lordship—Yes, but the Crown are
not ready, Mr. McKenzie. "
Mr. McKenzie—l believe, my lord, that
my learned friend, Mr. Blevins, who de
fended the prisoner Drummond, is ready to
go to trial.
His Lordship—Who defends the prisoner
Lunsden?
Clerk—Mr. M. C. Cameron t my lord.
His Lordship—When is it toted for?
Mr. R. A. H a rrison—Saturday next, my
lord,.
The prisoners were then allowed inter
views with the counsel, in order that the ne
cessary affidavits might be made. Ma
'path, the Fenian prisoner, was holding an
ink bottle in his hand whi le his counsel was
engaged in amending his affidavit, when
his Lordship thinking that the ink bottle
was a portion of a hand-shackle, said:
"Mr. Sheriff, I hope none of the prisoners
in Court are shackled?"
The Sheriff—" Certainly riot, my Lord."

PALNAISIA Tuesday,Oct. 23, 1866. We have
by the British mail steamer dates from Val
paraiso and Santiago de Chile to the 2d,and
from Callao and Ltma to the 10th October.
From Quito, capital of Ecuador, our dates
are to th e inst.
Ecuador.
I wrote you that Mr. Coggshall, United
States Minister resident, was presented to
the President of Ecuador on the 20th of Sep
tember.
On the 18th the Government gave a grand
banquet in honor of Chilian independence.
Speeches were in order, and were made by
the representatives of l republics, by the
President and chief officers, and were pub
lished in the America Latina of the 28th.
The banquet was succeeded by eight days
of bull fighting, with the accustomed scenes,
THE AMERICAN MIN ismkat.
The United States Minister addressed the
President on the occasion of his reception
as follows :
Ms. Prmsnimur—Sir : I have the honor
to present to your Excellency a letter of the
President of the United States, by which I
I am accredited as Minister Resident to the
' Republic of Ecuador, I am confident, sir,
you do not require re-assurance on my part
(.4 the friendly disposition of the Government
and people of the United States toward the
Government and the people of the Republic
of Ecuador in all political, commercial and
social relations; but I may remind your
Excellency that a prominent result of the
late triumphant struggle in the United
States for Union and freedom is witnessed
by enhanced ardency of patriotism and
elevated regard for republican Govern
ment. In the very degree of that regard,
manifested by untold sacrifices, embodying
potent lessons. is every representative of
the Republic of North America authorized
to assume, on behalf of his nation, political
sympathy aad material interest for the Re
publics of South America. In accordance
with the instructions of my Government,
and in pursuance of personal wish and de
termination, I assure your Excellency that
it shall be my highest ambition and my
greatest pleasure so to represent in Ecuador

President Carlon responded as follows :
MR. MINISTER-61r : By the official com
munication of his Excellency, the President
of the United States, that your Excellency
has just delivered to me, I am informed
with pleasure of the high confidence which
has been placed in you by your appoint

The unhappy civil war which has agitated
the Union, although it has honored its in
terests
and exacted sacrifices of every kind
for its termination, has given additional
evidence of the inseparable adhesion to
liberty of the Government and people • an
adhesion which is shown wherever their
voice or that of their representatives is
heard. In my administration, and
in the country over whose destinies I
preside your Excellency will find sympathy
and regard for the Government and people
of the United States, and I have the resolu
tion to conserve and cultivate the relations

Republics identified in political principles,

The American Minister addressed the
Chilean Envoy, at the Government banquet
given in Quito, on the 18th of September, In
honor of tlbiletui Independence, as follows:
atn:—As a representative of the Republic
of North America, I greet you, sir, and the
representatives of the Republics of Ecua
dor, Peru and Bolivia, here assembled in
honor of Chilean independence, with much
pleasure. I appreciate the emotions of
South American Republicans, on this occa
sion, because it brings home to my heart
the revered memories of 1776 and the glori
ous results of the Struggle for independence
then begun in South America. I regret my
inability to express my emotions ina lan
guage familiar to those whom address;
but,sir, let me assure you that I represent the
people of my nation, when I trust that the
prosperity of the South American Republic
may be so marked that when a new century
is ushered in they will be independent not
only of Spain, but of any other Power dis
posed to interfere with the advance of Re
publicanism upon this continent.
PERIL
The papers are still discussing thechances
offurtber war with Spain, andprognosticat
in the result if it takes place. Speaking of
the reports that the Queen of Spain was co
quetting with .Napolebo to induce him to
use his influence for a settlement of the
matter at isane,they say : "Spain can obtain
peace by an apology for the seizure of the
Chincha Islands; by the refunding of the
tbree millions of dollars paid her by Peret'd
Government; by -the payment of the dam
ages done to the public and private edifices
of Valparaiso, and the value of the goods
destroyed in the bombardment." It is fur
ther threatened that a "formidable fleet will
go into the Atlantic under Admiral Tucker;
that Salcedo has already gone to the "United
States to arrange about supplies of coal, pro
visions and munitions of war, and to induce
Confederate officers from the Southern States
to join the fleet on its arrival in Cuban wa
ters." This is stiff talk, but where is the
money to come from ?
News from Valparaiso had been received
at Lima of a revolt on the morning of the
Ist of October on the Peruvian war steamer
'Union, at Valparaiso. It was started by
Capt. Varea, of the Marine Corps, ostensi
bly in favor of his uncle, Col. Bahl, for the
Peruvian Presidency, and to get rid of
Tucker, the Confederate American asCom
mander of the Peruvian fleet. A Peruvian
cflicer of the fleet gives the following ac
count of the affair:
"The leader of the mutineers is Captain
Wares, of the Marine Corps of the Union,
son of the ]ate General Varea and nephew
of Colonel Balta. He was with us at Abtoa,
but being of such a turbulent character he
Is as dismisses from there and sent to Callao.
When the Government sent down the
Chalaco with Admiral Salcedo to place
Tucker in command of the squlldzbn, this
Capt. Varea mune down in her with his
company of marines, and was sent on board
the Union as senior marine officer.
"The Peruvian !Meister in Santiago wrote
to Admiral Tucker that he should like to
see him in Santiago,upon matters connected
with his command, as would also the Secre
tary of the Navy, and stated that a grand
ball was to be given by the President, and
be should like him to so time his visit as o
be present on the occasion. This the Ad
miral did, and was for the first time since
Le has been in command absent from the
ship; and Varea, taking advantage of his
absence, put his plan into execution.
"At 3 o'clock in the morning I noticed that
there appeared to be something unusual on
board of the Union, but did not suspect the
real state of affairs. A little later the smoke
began to arise from the chimney, and there
were cries of ' Viva Montero ; death •to the
Yankees; death to Tucker.' I immediately
beat to quarters, and as one of the water
police boats pulled past me, I told the officsr
in command to notify the Union that if they
attempted to move I would open my fire
upon them, and run them down. By this
time the allied squadron were cogni
zant of what was going on, and all the com
manders got their boats ready to board the
Union and quell the mutiny. As we pulled
Tor her the mutineers jumped into their
boats and pulled for the snore. They suc
ceeded in gaining shore, although closely
pursued by our boats. By 6 o clock the
crew were all arrested, and at 3 in the after
noon Versa was taken prisoner, and they
are all confined on board of the Admiral's
ship in double irons. The Chilean authori
ties wanted to try them by a court martial
and shoot them, but this was opposed by
Admiral Tucker, who will' await orders
from Lima about their disposal.
"This Varea depended upon his marines to
accomplish his object, which he states was
to create a counter-revolution against Prado;
a large amount of correspondence with
manrof the principal malcontents in the
navy was found upon him."
The night before this news was received
in Lima the Government was apprised that
there was an extensive conspiracy on foot
in favor of Balta in Lima and Callao, and
seventeen arrests were at once made
Among them were Generals Rivas,
Echenique, Bengolea, Col. Halts, the op
position candidate; Dr. Maraleque and son,
vocales of the Supreme Court: the first three
are in prison. The latter two have been ban
ished from the country; Great excitement
reigns throughout Lima, and many persons
believe that there will be trouble on theilsth
at the polls.
The Dictator Prado has expressed his de
termination to set aside the entire proceeds
of the guano islands to pay the expenses of
the war against Spain. Prado seems to be
losing ground considerably in Peru on
account of his course against the Church, he
having attempted to curtail the rents and
immunities of the Bishop and some of the
clergy. The poll tax on all natives and for
eigners alikeof one dollar per month causes
great discontent.
It is proposed to make street railroads
through the city of Lima.
There is nothing new from Bolivia.

There have been some changes in the
ailean Cabinet. Seffor Errazuriz, who

TRAGEDY IN NEW YORK.
A Husband Shoots hie Wife and her
His Arrest, &c.,
[From to-day's Y. Timm]
A very sad affair occurred last evening in
the Seventeenth Ward, where a husband
seriously wounded his wife and her parts
mour,whom he surprised in jlagrante delicto.
The facts of this case are these, as gathered
by our reporter from the lips , of the heart
broken husband and father:. Mr. William
T.Anderson married a lady in Boston nearly
seventeen years ago, and resided very hap
pily with her in that city for twelve years,
two children being the fruit of the union.
About five years ago the family removed to
this city, when Mr. Anderson procured em
ployment as a clerk in a down-town house.
Prior to this removal the husband became
suspicions of his wife's fidelity to her mar
riage vows, and endeavored at different.
times to determine their truth or falsity.
His efforts only tended to confirm his pre
vious suspicions,. although he could not
obtain any positive proof. He noticed, how
ever, that his wife became visibly indiffer
ent to him, and was at times quite intent
perate in her habits.
Last summer the family removed to Belle
ville, N. J., for the season—the husband
meanwhile attending to his business duties
in this city. While thus sojourning Mr.
Anderson became convinced that an im
proper intimacy existed between his wife
and a Mr. Whitfield, who kept the village
grocery, and he at once brought his family
back to New York, and engaged house
room for them at No 173 East Twenty-third
street. Since then Mrs. Anderson has
sited Belleville two or three times, despite
the express orders to the contrary of her
husband.
About three days ago Mr. Anderson was
compelled to go to Boston on business, and
informed his wife that he would not be back
until Saturday. Contrary to his expecta
tions, the business he had in hand was
transacted on Tuesday afternoon, and he
took the night train for New York that
same evening. When he arrived in this
city Mr. Anderson did not returnhome but
proceeded directly down town to business.
About 6 o'clock last evening, he proceeded
to his dwelling in East Twenty-third street,
but failed at first to find his wife, notviith
standffig that he made search for her. On
coming down stairs, he , heard whispering
in the parlor, and on opening the door, his
worst fears were confirmed. Maddened be
yond expression, the infuriated husband
drew a revolver, and discharged three cham
bers at the guilty pair; one of the balls tak
ing effect on the woman's forehead, but
glanced; the second bullet struck her in the
left breast, inflicting a severe wouncL Police
Surgeon Kimbark, who was subsequently
called to attend her, pronounced neither
wound to be of a fatal character. The pars
mourescaped in the confusion, and it is sup- .
posed the third bullet struck him in the fore
head, as a man was seen on the avenue
bleeding profusely , from a wound in the
bead, which he said bad been received by a
fall from the roof of a stage, and that he
bad lust his hat and cane. Both of these
articles belonging to Whitfield were found
in Mr. Anderson's parlor, and are now in
the possession of the Eighteenth Precinct
Police. Roundsman Leary and Officer
Little arrested the husband, and he was
locked up for examination at the Essex
Market Police Court, this morning. He ex
pressed deep sorrow for his rash use of the
pistol, but stated that he could not control
his passion at the moment. Mr. Anderson
is a native of the United States, and gave
his age as 42 years. The occurrence caused
great excitement in the neighborhood, for
several hours.
DuanAnc.—The theatrical event of last
evening, and a memorable one, too, was the
appearance of Mr. Joseph Jefferson at the
Chestnut. He had every good honse,many
of his old admirers having gathered to wel
come him back to the city after his long
absence in &reign lands and in other cities
of the Union. The play was Boncicault's
version of "Rip Van Winkle," which dif
fers greatly from that presented by Mr.
Hackett and Mr. Frank Drew, and is so
fancifully constructed that it would amaze
Washington Irving.. Mr. Jefferson, as Rip,
more than equaled the expectations of hie
friends. His personation of the character
was literally perfect. No actor alive could
improve on it. The fun, the pathos, the
quaint humor , the recklessness mingled
with gleams of shrewdness and catltion e
were exquisitely out, while the ad
juncts
of costume. titc.. were charmingly
true to nature. Miss Orton, as the terma
gant and then the tamed wife of Rip, acted
with grace, taste and discrimination which
excited the admiration and applause of
every one in the theatre. Miss Orton is one
of the ablest actresses on the stage, and she
proves this whenever she tones down her
natural exuberance and acts quietly. We
do not think any lady in the -profession
could have supported Mr. Jefferson more
admirably. Messrs. Mackay and Woolf
had ungrateful parts to play, but they did
them excellently,- and Mr. Foster and Miss
Cooper also gave great eclat to their charac
ters. -The scenery and effects were superb,
and Manager Sinn may plume himself on
them. As to the play itself there are some
parts painfully out of nature; in fact, almost
Billy, and only fit for the ears and eyes of
"tbe groundlings;" but they do not inter
fere with the perfection of Mr. Jeffereon's
personation. "Rip Van Winkle" will be.
repeated to-night, with the last new faros,
"Caught by the Cuff." At the Walnut Mr.
Booth, appears as rago, in "Othello," this
evening, supported by Messrs. Hfil,Roberta•
and the strength of the company.
_At the
Arch Mrs. John Drew appears in "Women
Will Talk," At the City Museum and the
American light and lively bills will be
given. On Wednesday next : the 7th inst.,
Mr. Bogumil Dawitin,the eminent German
tragedian, will appear as Shylook, in "The
Merchant of Venice," at the Academy - of
Music,
