The embarrassments of our monetary sys
tem, throughout the country, have already
commenced to operate upon those who can
least afford to suffer at this moment. We
mean, the laboring classes. Manufactories
and workshops are being closed in many lo
calities. The New York Times of yesterday
haS a painfully interesting article showing to
what effect this has already taken place In the
locality which it chiefly circulates in. From
this it appears that " daily, now, the effects of
the bard times are felt in the large manufac
turing establishments, on hundreds of me
chinics, shop girls, sewing women, and day
laborers, who did not feel them the day be
fore." Several hundred laboring Ind, at
work in the Now York Central Park, were
suddenly thrown out of employment, on
Wednesday. The cabinet-snaking trade is
greatly depressed, wood being high, credit
gone, cash no where, stock large, and sales
small. The venders of ready-made clothes
haVe greatly contracted the employment
which they give at this season, in preparation
for the winter demand, not only in the city,
but for the Southern markets. It is esti
mated that not more than a third of the per
sons so employed will be,again in work before
As the number of guests at the hotels has
sensibly declined, the proprietors have com
menced the thinning out of the waiters and
other attendants, most of whom are married,
with families. The manufacture of piano
fortes, and all such articles, more of luxury
than necessity, is also on the decline. In
short, neatly every sort of business in New
York feels the general depression.
The same may be said of the principal cities
of, the eastern States. Here, in Philadelphia,
a good , many hands have been discharged, and
we fear that a large proportion of these, unless

for the future they have been able to make we

70 would impress one thing on those who
give employment to the laboring classes—
that, instead of discharging their work people,
Piey would rather fall back on what is called
OW time, and proportionably pay dower
wages. It is better thus, than to keep some
on at full wages, while others are literally
thrust out into the street, without any means
for supporting themselves and families. What
aggravates the evil is the pertinacity with
which, though the abundance of all sorts
produce is remarkable, the prices of all sorts
of provisions are kept up. After one of the
most prolific harvests we were ever blessed
with, these prices are not only as high, but even
higher than they were, a year ago. How the
mnititude, with diminished means, can conti

;Not only all sorts of farm and garden pro
duce are thus kept up, but butcher's meat and
bead also. Beef ranges at from two to three
cents per pound dearer than it was this time
twelve month: As for bread, we can only say
that flour is fully two dollars a barrel cheaper
than it was two months ago ; but the bakers
generally do not make any difference in the
size of bread. While flour is so cheap, it
winild be wise policy in every one who can
afford it, to purchase a barrel or two, for home
censumptien—for as winter approaches, the
price will run up.

cquntry—we would give a word of counsel.
%hether they be in or out of work, let them
9erclse the most rigid economy, and learn
how to make a dollar go farther than they have
ever made it go before. They, and all of us,
should determine to practice rigid economy,
not only in their houses, but out of doors. The
necessity of the times requires this. And,
when the pressure is relieved, when honest
labor has full action again, it will bo well to
adhere to habits of prudent economy thus
formed. What was commenced from necessity,
should be continued from deliberate choice.
SBSPENSION OF HARPER & BROTHERS
Yielding to the pressure of the times, and
unable, under the influence of that pressure, to
collect the amounts due to them all over the
country, Messrs. 'HAMM, the eminent pub
lishers in New York, have been compelled to
suspend payments. For more than quarter of
a century this firm has been distinguished by
energy, tact, and considerable liberality in its
dealings. At one time or another nearly
every living author of America has had some
bhsiness-dealings with Messrs. 11/111PEIt. The
amounts which they have disbursed to paper
makers, type-founders, compositors, book
binders, newspapers, and also to authors and
aipts, make a mighty aggregate. Their sus
pension is a public misfortune, for we fear that
it will throw a large number of persons out of
employment—though, of course, the Magazine
and Weekly will continuo to give work to a
good many of them. There is no doubt of the
ultimate solvent) , of this house. Their assets
are said to be over $1,000,000 in excess of
Brevet-Colonel HENRY HAVELOCK, the hero
of the present Indian strife—whose exploits
have shown him, as yet, the only Man among
the British officers commanding in India—who
has made Cawnpore as great a name in the
annals of British India, as Flassy was made by
Purr, a century ago—has been rewarded by
Lord Ettratair, the British war-minister, with
a good service pension of $9.22 per week, and
promotion " to the local rank of Major-Gene
ral in the East Indies." Ho has not even
been paid the compliment of getting (what
NELSON fought for) a gazette of his own, but
is set down after Colonel COTTON, an old
Indian unknown to tame, and Colonel Mrrou
au, a half-pay officer, both of whom are
raised to the same local rank. It was not
thus that M.i.vaLzos rewarded valor. Every
one of his Twelve Marshals of France arose
from the ranks, and received rank, not in
driblets, not in mere " local " holding, but
with its grade regulated by nothing but the
greatness of the recipient's services.

This most dramatic of modem French novels
was attributed, whoa first published, to the author
of "The (Yount of Monte-Chaste." It woe Written,
however, not by Dumas Pere, but Dumas fits.
Dramatic it it, to a remarkable degree, for a molo
drama and an opera—Camilla and La Trariats—
have been successfully founded upon it. The play
rose to instant end immense success, chiefly owing
to the truthful, almost painfully truthful, acting of
Madams Docile, and the opera contains a few furs
which aro among the gems &nposed by Verdi.
The original romance has never been translated
into English, we believe, until now. The version
before us is extremely well-executed. In Lot, It

Everybody knows the main incidents of its plot,
thanks to " Cattails" and "La Traviata," but on
the dramatic and lyrical stage the grosser details
aroJudiciously, suppressed. The luxury, the arts,
the ad life of the meretrieieus heroine aro kept
out of view, and, when the curtain falls, we pity

what is it? a highly-catered narrative of the amours
of p young Frenchman who is infatuated with one
of the courtesans of Paris,—the hero sets up .for

In this story, though the plot is extravagant and
melo-drumatir, the author exhibits wonderful
power and groat skill. The interest never Raga,
and the narrative runs on so rapidly as to satisfy the
most breathless interest. But the morale of
the whole book is wrong. It is the beatifies

sual, it is worse—it is sensuous. There is no
grossness of language, indeed, but a luxurious,
enervating, mind-influencing feeling runs thrmiet
It may be told that the story is really founded
on facts, and that its heroine is a picture front

what a sensation was created In Paris, a faw years
ago, at the sale of the magnificent furniture,
jewels, pictures, library, wardrobe, and articles
of vertu, belonging to a celebrated forme named
Mario Duplessis. But the truth of the story does
not mitigate the evil of its tendency. The worst
of all is—it is so well written that it is difficult,
hating once taken it up, to lay it down until it
ho read through, from title-page to colophon.
Would that it were as difficult to take It up!
Despite of our condemnation—it may ha partly
on account of It—" The Camolia Lady" will find
multitudes of readers. Not many will read it
openly, perhaps, but a orowd will read and re

Now approaching the solemn ceremonies which
he had been discussing, ho reminded them of what
Jesus said to his mother before expiring upon the
tree: "Woman, behold thy son!' and then turn
ing to the disciples, lie added, "Behold thy
mother !" These undying words had been uttered
as the shepherd was about to be smitten, and the
sheep to be scattered, and how could language more
forcibly express the friendly relations which should
forever exist between men and the mother of his
Saviour! If we honored her, we had the right to
expect her love in return; indeed, by this solemn
injunction of her son, she was bound to love us,
and mere especially so on the day on which they
were then assembled. Wo should all, then, bless
her as the mother of Jesus, and adopt her as our
own, and we had hie word for it that she would be
to us a good mother in the hour of our death, and
he concluded by asking how a child of Josus could
be ashamed of the mother of Jesus.
When the sermon was concluded, the solemn
ceremonies of the festival wore commenced. They
occupied considerable time in their performance;
but as they wore conducted in a tongue unintelli:
giblo to us, wo con say nothing further to either
enlighten or edify the reader. The immense edi
fice was densely crowded on the occasion, even the
aisles being thronged with humble suppliants. The
pointed gothic arches resounded with the solemn
music of a welbtrained choir, and the proceedings,
taken as a whole, were doubtless eminently appro
priate to the time and place.
Tho New York Evening Post of the 7th re

Thursday the let inst. Tho friends of the family
assembled on Saturday, the 3d, to attend the fune
ral; but it having been discovered early on that
day that the body still preserved its natural ap
pearance, it was decided to perform the services in
the house, deferring the burial for the present.
The body was accordingly removed from the coffin
to the bed, and now continues in a state of perfect
preservation and natural condition, on this the
seventh day since its supposed decease. The ut
most solicitude exists, of count+, in the family, and
every effort is being made to assist nature in the
restoration of her functions, although, as yet, no
symptoms of active life have appeared. It maid
seem to bo a case for the moat extreme measures to
be adopted, lest the prolonged suspension of life
nosy of itself prove fatal ; and yet instances of a
pause of weeks in the natural poseurs are said to
have been recorded in Europa."
ART CRlTlolol.—Ambroso Philips, the poet,
was very solemn and pompous in etinversation.
At a coffee-house he was discoursing upon pictures,
and pitying the painters who, in their historical
pieces, always draw the samo sky. "They should
travel," said ho, "and then they would see that
there is a different sky in every country, in Eng
land, Franco, Holland, Italy, and so forth.
"Your remark is just," said a brave gentleman
who sat just by, have been a traveller myself,
and oan testify that What you observe is true ; but
the greatest variety of skies that I over found was
in Poland." "In Poland, sir?" "Yes, in Poland ;
for there is Eablesky, and Barbionsky, and Jahlon
sky, and Podebrasky, and many more skies, sir."
The body of a young woman was found on
Thursday morning in the water under Irish Creek
bridge, on the lino of the Reading railroad. near

LOSS OF THE JEROME KNIGHT
Eleven Person■ Five Days on the Wreck—An
other Thrilling story of Suffering at Sea.
[From the New York Dolly Times of the 9th ]
The Jerome Knight, Captain !Bram Perkins, was
wrecked on the 23st alt , off the coast of North Caroline.
The vessel belongs to Messrs Whiton, Brown, & Wheel
'a right, in Boston, and had left Wilmington, N. C ,
Incited with lumber for Marseilles and a market She
was a staunch built vessel, only a year and s half old,
and already rode out two or three violent gales. There
were eleven persons on the vessel when she was wrecked
—the captain, mate, steward, five seamen, and the cap
tain's wife and two children. one of them an infant but
nine weeks old. Five days after the barque was a reeked,
the parties were picked off by the brig &Beretta, from
Rio Janeiro bound to New York. and brought safely to
this city. Captain Perkins hoe gone on to Boston to
report to the owners of the lost barque, and the crew.
immediately upon their arrival here, hurried to their
homes, the most of them living in Boston and its vi
cinity. The wife of Captain Perkins still remains
in the city with her two children One of oar report
eta called upon her yesterday, and received the follow
ing detailed statement of the particulars attending
the loan of the barque and the trying experiences of
hense;f, her two children, her husband, and the crew of
On the afternoon of the Met of September last, the
Jerome Knight left Wilmington, N. C., but as the
wind was blowing very fresh from the northeast, it was
deemed inexpedient to go outside the bar that night.
Next morning at daylight nhe got under way, and pro
ceeded on her voyage, with a fresh breeze blowing from
the northeast lowan! evening the gale increased in
violence, and the topsails were dome reefed, the vessel
heading to the southeast. The wind increased during
the night almost to a hurricane, and there was an ugly
cross sea. The vessel laboring heavily, wan put under
short sail, and all hands were occupied throughout the
night on deck. Mrs. Perkins lay sea-sick in her berth,
thbugh it was her tenth voyage to sea with her hus
band, and she seldom was sick.
The rst intimation she had that the vessel was in
danger' was shortly after daylight, when she heard the
order event° heave the deck-load overboard. Soon after
a heavy sea boarded the barque, filling the cabin, car
rying the deck-lead overboard, starting the stanchions
and causing the vessel to leak badly. Seizing her in
tent, which was sleeping beside her In one arm, and her
buy, eight 3 ears of age, who occupied an upper berth, in
her other aria, Mrs. Perkins sprang out, and instantly
(send herself up to the waist In water. Everything had
been washed clean out of the cabin, including all their
chests and trunks, containing her own, her husband's,
the children's clothing, and every other movable ent
ail,. Reaching the companion-way, she called out to her
hr eband, '•Are Me going down '" The seamen were
cutting away the foremast, which in a moment more

to it Vila was done to ease the vessel, and prevent her
tram capsizing. The next order was to secure the iuualt

The pumps were manned and efforts made to free the
easel, but the vile nearly full of water. All efforts to
got her before the wind were unavailing, as she was too
much water-logged to obey her helm, and so lay help
less in the trough of the sea, the swell combing and
breaking over her. Mrs. Perkins and children were
placed on top of the house, and lashed firmly to keep
them from being swept away by the sea. The crew
also lashed themselves in the main rigging. Signals of
distress were hoisted to attract the notice of any vessels
that might be passing. but all further attempts to get
the vessel under control and bead her to the westward
were abandoned. Their only hope was to be fallen in
with and rescued by come friendly sail.
The gale continued unabated throughout the thy.
Our lady sailor found it ss much an she could do to pro

on them but their night garments. They were hungry,
but as It was impossible for either parent to leave and
procure food, they passed the day without it, and with
As night approached it was necessary to display two
lights, one below the other, as a signal of distress. Oise
of the men being made fast to the end of a piece of
running rigging, essayed to find the lamps in the cabin.
and, if possible, some provisions also One lamp was
found in order, but the other was without oil, and the
oll•can was underwater. In this dilemma, a bottle of
castor oil was fortunately found, with which the lamp
WWI tilled, but then there were no matches to light theta
with. Ono of the crew worked a couple of hears trying
to ignite two sticks by rubbing them together, but when
the effort proved abortive, another search discovered
some matches, and the lamps were both lighted and
placed in the riggi❑g Two hams and four cans of pre
served moats w ere all the food that could be found
The gale continued through the night, and such was
the violence of the sea, they were in constant fear that
the vessel would go to pieces. It was a dismal night.
The children utterly exhausted, slept it out, however
In his dreams the boy cried for water, but there moo no

Toward daylight of the 25th the gale moderated. Ma
hope once more revived that a sail would appear. They

They passed the night of the 2t3th, and the day and
night of the 27th, with no material variation of their
experience. On the morning of the fifth day they saw
a. sail to leeward, at a long distance, but it passed on
without observing them. In the afternoon another sail
was discovered to windward. It bore down to them,
and proved to be the brig Altevella, from Rio Janeiro,
bound to New York, which took the wrecked company
on board, treated them in the most hospitable manner,
and landed them safely in New York on the 3d inst.
They were all entirely destitute, and most of them
had sore limbs and boils, caused by the hardships to
which they had been exposed, but all very thankful to
the merciful Providence which had saved them, They
all express great gratitude to the captain, officers, and

on board of that vessel.
