The San Frani:dace journals are speculating,
very- ingeniciusly, on the 'Proepecti of dimi
nished exports - of gold from California to New
York. ~ The Herald says : “For two or three
months past there has been every perceptible
decrease in the amount of gold shipped froth
this port, 'and ,Ave have - no doubt bit that Abe
close'of the year will exhibit a very, giatifYing,
diminution in our. aninuakexportation.t l - -: . '
The Times, on the other hand, says :' . I ,F Our
eptemporaries, .we fear, .are two hasty in fe
licitating the piibliO.;eir the ,falling 'Off of the
expOttatiOn of the precious metals from our
State, as, after active search, we are, really at
a loss to aseortaln what data they found their
allegations on.- ; Statistical tables do -not not bear
theta out In' the:suppositiori, and If they' had
consulted figitres;"they diiiabtiess . would rliavO,
ascertained that the' total shipment for the
year 1867.wi1l not fall short' of that of 1856,
and may fully equal that of 1866. It is true,
California has become a producing conntry,but
she is stills neophyte and bleeds freely—ei free
as when she needed the necessaries which her
teeming soil new affOrds. The gold iihippedfrciiii

period of, six.: months,lvras - :528,688,990.49,

We find that $11,491,7413:79 liaVe also left our

was' hipped in.inly; $4,095,150.89 in August,
and 88,685,880.28 is September, which has
still-ten days' transactions tit be added 'thereto.
Takingicito consideration that the past
is the dullest of all the, year, not alone in
the production'of gold; but in the transactions
of.husineas, We can see" ; _hcit little ground for,
hoping that . the succeeding quarter will ex. ,

The ' decrease in the 'quantity of gold Cr'.
ported fromcalifornict, (if - decrease there be,)
cannot be attributed to any diminution in the
yield of, • gold; - tor all acconnis concur in de=
daring ~ that to be, augmenting, not only from
the . steady work of the 'gold hunter and
miners; but" from Ithe, introthictlon of ma

at a heavy expense, and, before long, we may, be,
able - to produce .everything of which 'we may
staid' in need—hoth luxuries and' neteniaries.
-How is it possible, under these circtunetances, that
.the shipments of gold fink this port should con
tinue to be 'to great as is ,former years?' It'is a
-matter oteorpriee" to us that the amount of 'gold
'sent away from Oalifornia should Pofitinne year

effected a saving of twelve or fourteeu millions of

Idgfitljouß steady. man, 'with their , wives and

( settling down, to the pastoral or agrioultural
life; lic rilleia of California. The
emigratkin of this class into California is esti,
_at. from. 25,000 t0. , 80,000 for the year
',1867. When the great railroad shall bo conz ,

nix; this working 'population will yet more'and
more 'increase. It may be expected that a good
deal orgold wlltbe 'retained by these peepte,
'as they. earn it. . A:portion will be hoarded, a
'portion will , be expended in the purchabe :of
land and. the 'erection of dwelling-hduses, a

:and commerce, and, no tionbt, <especially in• a
population containing so many PonusYlva-

;The tendency to hoard is great, There Mai
be 'shout 050M:1006f gold in the Milted
!States,—and of;this it is estimated that one
half is _hoarded., :Aliening „liberally , for the
goldiwhich the; banks used, to Isaue, for the.
balance in the , United States Treaeury; and;
for what is in circulation, there cant:o be less
than i 125,000,600 kept out of use and sight,
simply hoarded up by careful people, and not
unfrequentli in"comparatively small amounts.
But, as the Scotch ;proverb says, ce mony a
little make a raickle."
! , %Wittig the estimate of the Boa Francisco
: papers that the OaEfornian shipments of geld
to the eastern' Stites may decline, front varl
'es m , utes, we do not see that such a falling
-RC would -materially affect this part of the
Vinmtry: Before the discovery of' gold in
*strati the effect might have been serious.
But our largest foreign trade it with England,
the recipient of all the Autitralien . gold, and
as long, as, Lancashire wants to buy cotton
and we have got' it' to sell, so long may We
depend:upon a large, steady, and constant
supply of gold from England.
Somebody said, we, think it wee, Mr. CAL:
Holm, that it required a great intellect to un
derstand and illustrate the tariff question;
Oar. 'correspondents, _however, are ',men of
experience' and learning, and brine much
roftection k to support their respective
Thoie who advocate a high protecave
however, and who charge excessive Importa
tions, upon the system of IoW duties, make
some most transparent mistakes. One fact in
histery 'seems to have been overlooked by this
class of thjniters ; and that is, the enormous
amount of importations under the couipromise
tariff of 11533, in ,1886-86, while the duties of
that tariff were, still at the highest. The fact
is, the whole' business of tariff will be best
regulated by a sound, currency. It is our
paper money which mainly sets everybody wild
with speculation=-that, and the consequent
and sure adeMice of labor and produce, fills
every channel of trade with schemers. who
look only to present gains for themselves,
leaving the certain future contraction to he
borne by those who can least afford it.
,If we
COnid have a currenoy of gold and 'silver, and
allow no bank notes under $2O or $6O, this
would go far to 'make econOmy . a nepesOty;
and to protect indpstry, and Manufactures from
those expansions and collapses 'which first lift
thent up' to the skies, 'only to 'dash them down

The illness of the King of Prussia has opened
hp • the important question as to the effect his
death would have on the policy of Burdpe. It
is not, however, clear whether his recovery will
be of a nature to enable him to renew his gov-
Ornment or to disqualify him from an active part
in the 'administration of affairs. If perfectly re
covered, matters will go on as before; if imper
fectly 'wavered, a regency may be the cense
queue° : and, as he might outlive the prince,
his brother, our princess royal will become
Queen of Prussia, without her mother-in-law
having worn the crown. The Prince of Prevails is
almost an old man; but he has managed through
life to render it difficult for any partyln the State
to claim him as an ally ; while one considers him
an aristocrat, another pronounces him a liberal;
but, as all is uncertain, the natured his principles
cannot be ascertained until he takes upon himself
the business of government—if he ever is per

A Prussian document has just appeared reaped

The union may now be regarded as an estab

In France, a very curious trial has taken place.
At the last election, in one of the provinces, a can

'appeared Ito was not returned; and, although
pronounced insignificant, the law officers of the
crown thought lit to prosecute him in a criminal
court. He was defended by an adherent 'of the

advocate, made the ease of his client's a point of pro
fessionalhonor. The defence wee an able one; for, on
the cross-examination of witnesses, a most extraord I•
nary disclosure took plane. It appears that the bal
lot-box at that election, and, no donbt, at all other
elections, was a mere sham. It was something

of the people was set at naught, and the influence
of the court made triumphant. A moro profligate

The consequences of an abundant harvest are
new indeed felt throughout France. The price
of bread ban fallen to 14 sous the 4lb loaf in
Paris, and to 12 sons in several of the depart
ments; and these are, I believe, the ordinary
prises in plentiful years. There was no farther
fall in the corn market last week. Prices ars firm,
but without any appearance of a serious rise.
Tho offers of wheat for sale were less numerous
at the last Paris market. The farmers resisted a
farther reduction,
and prices remained nearly the
same as during theprevious weeks, namely 31f.
the 120 kilogrammes for wheat of the first quality,
and from 2df. to 301. for other descriptions. In
the markets of the central departments quota
tions were lower, but were firm or higher in the
East and Alsaae.whare purchases were made on
account of Prussia. The shipments of corn for
Spain have contributed to keep up prices for
Marseilles. The Paris flour market was more
active last weak than for several weeks previous;
prices were maintained at from 42f. to 55f. the sack
of 157 kilogrammes. The factors declared 4,080
sacks for delivery within 30 days at these prices.

A gentleman from Delaware named Carter,
during the last summer visited Indiana. In con
versation with a gentlemen in that State, ho was
told that Downham, on ono occasion, when drunk,
while talking about Delaware, was asked why he
left there. i n reply he sold he got into a serape
and hod to leave. When asked what Bert of a
serape, he replied, that it was only the killing of a
d—d negro, These reinarke were treated us the
ebullitions of a drunken man, and Mr. Carter re
plied that he never heard anything about the af
fair. But when he returned to Delaware he told
this story to several persons; finally it reached the
ears of Robert W. Royoolds, Dsq., the register of
Kent county. This gentleman rotated it to At
torneytieneral Bieber, 'who summoned Mr. Carter.
The latter gentleman could give no further infonn-
Alen. A white man, who lived with Downham in
1852, named' Andrews or Anderson, was then flir
t:nosily summoned before the grand jury of the
Kent county court, at the late session. To the
questions of the grand jury he made, to substance,
the following statement :
In 1852 he and a negro named Pompey worked
for Downham. One morning he told them to go
late a woods to chop. Downbam passed to the
other side of the woods with a gun, about a mile
distant. When be returned he said to Andrews
that he had shot a rabbit. The manner of the ex
pression created suspicion, as he had said he would
shoot the negro, who had refused to appear at coutt.
That night he told Anderson and Pompey to get
their shovels,
as ho had a jeb for them. Re led
them across the woods to the body of the negro—
told Pouipey to dig a hole and bury the body, and
threatened to kill them both if they ever divulged
the secret. The body wan dragged about thirty
yards and buried. Downham subsequently left
the State, and Anderson, and Pompey have been
fealfut of their lives ever since Anderson, we are
told, says that Downbeat set in ambush with his
gun; waiting fur the negro. When he appoarest
Downham could not got a fair shot, but at bearing

chlo's Famous Steed—An Amusing Seene.—We
have witnessed many a curious parade, but never
any quite so peculiar and ludicrous as one we saw
yesterday morning. Between 10 and 11 o'clock a
party of men and boys made their appearance on
several of our principal streets bearing an antiqua
ted-looking banner, and several rusty old guns,
and, of course, created considerable of a sensation.
All who participated in this very formidable de
monstration, were evidently laborers. First in the
order of the parade came an individual mounted
upon a huge shaggy horse, which looked as though
he might have gone through all sorts of hard ser
vice until he was even past doing duty in an oyster
cart, the very last employment of broken•down
and used-up horse flesh.. Like the famous steed
stridden by Petruchio when going to claim his
shrewish bride, the animal was " hipped with an old
mothy saddle, the stirrups of no kindred; besides,
possessed with the glanders, and like to mose in
the chino, troubled with the lampase, infected with
the spavins, raied with the yellows, past cure of
the fives, stark spoiled with the staggers, begnown
with the hots; swayed in the back and shoulder
shotten ; ne'er-legged before, and with a half
checked bit and a bead stall of sheep's leather,
which, being restrained to keep him from stumb
ling, bath been often burst and now repaired with
knots; ono girth six times pieced."
The party, consisting of nine or ton persons,
walked in single file, headed by the device, which,
if it indicated anything in connection with the
guns, was a very empty ono so far as it was
allowed to go.
Over this assurance, on the top of the pole, was
a loaf, which, by its size, seemed to represent
eight cents.
It seems that the selt-styled Protectors of the
Poor marched up Sixth street apd along Chestnut
to Third, before they were arrested. Chief Rug
gles ordered Officer Carson and a party of seven
men to intercept the party and escort them to the
Central Station. The " Protectors" turned into
Walnut street from Third, where they were
pounced upon, and, all were captured with the ex
ception of the solitary horseman, who succeeded in
making his escape
The reader must not understand, however, that
the fact of the leader being mounted enabled him
to escape. Ito was not fool enough to attempt get
ting oil with the spavined beast he bestrode; so he
got off the animal , - and then got off himself, leav
ing his Bucephalus in the hands off Sergeant Car
son's party. The " Protectors ' were marched to
the Central Station, at Fifth and Chestnut streets,
followed by an immense crowd. Old Woolley was
sent to a neighboring stable ; the guns were
stacked in the turnkey's room, and the "Protec
tors" were placed in the cells of the look-up.
The names of the captured as given at the Central
police station, are Win.llpland, John Reeve, Jno.
ilahavan, John Douglas, Robert Taylor, John Mc
alachlan, They all professed the most perfect in
nocence in the matter, not even knowing who had
put the emblems of blood into their hands. The
oldest of the party said that as be had nothing to
do, he didn't see any harm in carrying a loaf or an
empty gun. Ile was just entering into e very pro
found argument, to convince one of the officers
that nu empty gun in ahungry man's hands would
shoot nobody, when the officer quickly quieted him.
Some of them were of that class of boys who are
calculated to create a disturbance under almost any
They were just on their way to Second street at
the time of their arrest, where an excitement
would easily hare been made, which a few °Mears
might not so easily have quelled. The six men
were brought before Alderman Eneu, who read
them a lesson, and sent them bark to the cells.
The prisoners stated that they belong lathe neigh
borhood of Thirteenth and Federal streets. Lieu
tenant Dickhart, of the Reserve Corps, assembled
the entire party on the benches of the basement of
the Central Station, and in a very sensible address
endeavored to convince them of the serious ten
dencies of their conduct. As they passed into the
cell they were viewed by Mr. Clark, a truck farmer
on the Gray's Ferry road, whose farm was invaded
on Thursday night by a party of men with guns,
and a large number of articles earned oft He
stated that all the faces are familiar to him, but
he could not place them exactly. Than, for the
present, ends the first and very ludicrous "Bread
or Battle" demonstration in Philadelphia
Relief Meeting in Me Tenth Ward.—Pursn
ant to a public notice, a large and intelligent
mooting of the citizens of the Tenth ward was held
last evening, at half-past 7 o'clock, in the hall at
the northeast corner of Broad and Arch streets,
for the purpose of forming a Relief Association. On
motion of Mr. Charles S. Ogden, Joseph R. Chand
ler was called to the Chair, and Mr. 11. C. Town
send appointed Sooretary.
On taking the chair, Mr. Chandler made a neat
and graceful speech, in which ho returned his sin
care thanks for the honor conferred upon him in
selecting him to preside over a meeting of such
strength and respectability. He alluded feel
ingly to the great amount of suffering which
already exists in this community, and to the impe
rative necessity which calls for the adoption of
speedy measures of relief. He hoped that an asso
ciation would be organised in the Tenth ward,
which would in part relieve the heavy burden of
those thus oppressed, dry the tears of the widow
and orphan, and restore to a position of useful
ness in the community many now bowed down
under a crushing load of poverty.
Messrs. Ritchie, Pierce, Tyndale, Hacker, and
Chandler were appointed a committee to prepare
a constitution for the government of a relief Asso
ciation of the Tenth ward. These gentlemen re
tired, and after a few minutes reported the follow
Article 1. The name of this association shell be

Art. 2. All persons contributing to its funds
shall be members of the association.

Art. 3. Its object., shall be the relief of such per

Craig S. Ritchie ; Treasurer, D. Parrish. The
meeting then adjourned.
Police Rents.—A German named Frederick
Sixties was sent below on Thursday evening by
Alderman Gordon, for shooting a small boy. Mr.
S. resides at the Dutch settlement, in the vicinity
of Morris, Tanker, and Morris Foundry, and the
boys, it Is alleged, annoy the whole neighborhood,
by throwing stones and other missiles, and isehav
ing otherwise in the most reckless manner, On
Thursday the prisoner tired a load of small shot,
with the intent to sting some of the boys, and did
so to a much greater extent than ho supposed he
would. The boy, however, was not seriously
Some time during Thursday night a man was
found lying upon a door step in the Seventeenth
ward, very drunk He had with him a carpet
bag, which had been broken open and which,
upon examination, was found to contain a quantity
of female wearing apparel, together with a
"jimmy" and some other articles of the burglar's
craft. Tho bottom of the carpet-bag bore upon it
the name of Mr. James Ellis, Broad street, above
Mr. Ellis was sent for, and stated that his daugh
ter started for Burlington on Thursday morning,
taking with her the carpet-bag filled with clothing.
Tier brother accompanied her to the boat, and the
hag was left in the cabin. It is supposed that the
loafer described above carried it off. and, after
breaking it open. disposed of some of its contents
and put in articles of his own. The young lady
has not since been heard from.
The prisoner had a hearing before Alderman
Eneu yesterday morning lie gave the name of
Edward Williams, and declined to give any fur
ther account of himself. He was hold fora further
hearing Tim same individual was arrested on the
day of the firemen's parade, on suspicion of at
tempting to pick pockets. He was sent below for
thirty days, and it Is supposed he has Just got out.
The Central Office for the Coroner.—Coro
nor John It. Fenner, who entered upon the dis
charge of his official duties in the beginning of
this week, is now engaged in fitting up an office
for himself, at No. 429 Walnut street, below Fifth.
This central location will be found of great impor
tance and utility. An elfleient clerk, who will
take the trouble to preserve full and aeon
rate accounts of all eases that crane within the
jurisdiction of the coroner, will certainly be a
great adjunct to the press of the city. We trust
that there will always ho easy access to tho re
cords of this aloe, and that, by this method, wo
will be enabled to give prompt and correct reports
of all that Is interesting which they may contain.
Suicide of a Young Female.—Yesterday
morning, a young female, of abandoned eharacter,
was found dead in bed at her residence at Ninth
and Carpenter streets. Coroner Penner was sum
moned to hold an inquest. It appeared, from the
evidence, that the deoeased had swallowed a
quantity of laudanum during Thursday night, for
the purpose of destroying her life. A verdict was
rendered accordingly.
Railroad acrident.—Yesterday morning Mr.
Joseph Edwards, a baggage master on the North
Pennsylvania Railroad, while coupling the care,
got jannned between woof there, andwas so badly
crushed about the body that his life is despairod
of. lie was convoyed to the residence of a fiiend,
on Washington street, where he was attended to
by fir. yasey.
Lecture by Elder Hyde.--John Hyde, late
Mormon elder, and author of "Mormonism Ex

"Salt Lake City and Brigham Young."
We are gratified at being able to announce, by
authority, tho full, satisfactory, and honorable set

that lately existed between the Merchants' and

Pg/LADZINHIA, November 6, 1857
The effects of the steady stream of the precious
metals, pouring luto the country fur the purchase
of our breadstuffs and cotton, are felt more and
more daily in the operations of all branches of
business. The growth of confidence is of course
very slow, after such an entire prostration, and
thou who only compare one day with another ;
are not apt to mark It ; but if we look back to 'the
close of last week, we shall be satisfied that there '
has been; since that time, a very decided change
for the better.
It is a cause for congratulation. too, that with
the fury of the storm avowedly spent, so 'many
mercantile firms are left standing, who have pus
ad through the trial unscathed, and will hence
forth be able to demand that a prime position and
standing. be . universally accorded them. It will
be their boast hereafter, that they weathered the
disasters of 1857 without coming under protest or
seeking extensions, and the number of those in ac
tive business in our city is far larger than might be
supposed. Failure is still, as it should ever be in
Philadelphia, the exception and not the rule, and
we point to the fact with the more satistaction,wh en
we recall our protest against the proposition that
our business teen should unite in a general move
ment to demand time for the payment of their
We are now coming upon a time when short
credits will be in fashion, and with good fame and
our old character for fair and hvaorable dealing,
our business men will ultimately be all tho better
off for having experienced the gnat orsah of 1857.
The stook of the Reading Railroad Company
improved again today, closing at 18, and the busi
ness at the stock board was animated and cheer
ing. The announcement is made that the work on
the Lebanon Valley Railroad s near Harrisburg,
which was suspended lately on account of the
money pressure, has been resumed, and will be
pushed forward rapidly. It is expected to com
plete it early in January. It will be a good thing
for the Reading Railroad when this long-cherished
enterprise is consummated.
The New York Courier and Enquirer sap
"The banks of this oily that hare acted upon
the dividend question, have (the American Ex
change Bank excepted) passed their semi-annual
dividend for the present. The claims of stockholders
(many of them widows and orphans) are, it Is true,
strong; but the ,results of the recant suspension
are not yet fully established, and many of the
banks doubt whether they have actually earned
dividends for the past six months. The average
surplus profits undivided in July last, (amounting
to 8 or 9 per cent.,) it is thought generally have
been sunk by the recent losses. If so, and until
the work of suspension and failure is fully known,
the bona fide profits are matters of conjecture
only, and not a proper subject for dividend."
The National Intelligencor says :
"The Directory of the Chesapeake and 'Ohio
Canal Company meet today at the City Ball.
Besides the regular routine of business, the princi
pal topic for consideration will probably be as to
permitting the coal companies to navigate the ca
nal temporarily on a credit of four months, as so
licited by them. Unable to sell their coal at the
North on other terms than a four months' credit,
the companies can do no better for the canal than
to otter the same in the payment of tolls. We
learn that the work at dams Nos. 4 and 5 is going
favorably forward."
An election for directors of the Jersey Shore
Bank was held on the Bth ult., which resulted in

A letter from Havana to the New York Journal
of Commerce, dated October 29, says: We are at
this moment under the greatest money pressure
that can be brought to bear upon this commercial
community. Those who have been engaged in
stooks will be most severely dealt with, as they can
got no discounts through the banks, and will de
pend entirely upon the forbearance of their credi
tors whether they go to the wall or not. The prztv.
Ho feeling is, however, favorable, and will smooth
the path somewhat, which is a little more rough
from the liberal contributions of specie which
have been made to the chests of friends in the
United States, at New York and New Orleans
Some interest is manifested In commercial cir
cles in the failure of the Grocers' Sugar Refining
Company, in New York, concerning which we
find the following particulars in the Herald :
" We referred to the suspension of this company
yesterday. It seems that it has been compelled to
appeal to its 'creditors for an extension of time to
meet Its obligations. This muse has produced
much surprise among persons engaged In the en
gar trade, as well as in money circles, and led
yesterday to a good deal of talk and excitement.
We learn that this company was organised under
the previsions of the general State law authorising
the formation of companies, do., without a special
act of incorporation.
It commenced with a paid up capital of about
$600,000, and on the let January, 1857, declared a
dividend of five per oent. in cash, and made a stook
dividend of twenty-Ova per cent., which augment
ed its capital to $750,000. Falling into some pres
ours far money, it proposed at one time to issue
bonds to the extent of about $200,000, but aban
doned the idea, and, we understand, gave mort
gages on their building and real estate. Notwith
standing these struggles, the trustees declared a
dividend on the let July of five per cent. in cash,
on their capital stook.
Hence, a question has arisen among the creditors
of the company, whether the trustees, in declaring
a dividend. in July. which they contend was not
justified by the condition of the company, or by its
net earnings, have not rendered themselves per
sonally liable for its debts.
Tip amount of its liabilities not known, but a
considerable portion, it is said, consists of notes in
the hands of sugar importers and note brokers.
The members of the Trust embrace some of our
most prominent, energetic, and enterprising mer
chants, who, if any body of men can do it, will be
able to work the company through its difficulties.
The Trust is composed of nine members, as fol
lows : G. D. Morgan, J. Thorn, Ponvert,
Charles Deninson, H. B. Shermer, Moses Grinnell,
Thomas Tileston, James Warren, and one other
name not recollected. Mr. Grinnell was Presi
dent, Mr Briggs Secretary, and Mr I Boldridge

The operations of the' Keck just pant * have been
limited, but the markets generally present a more
settled and hopefal . feeling, and business shows
symptoms of a gradual improvement. Brcadstuffs
are firmer, but sell slowly at rather better prima."
Bark is in steady demand, without change in quo
tations. Cotton is very dull, and the stock unu
sually light for the season. Groceries—Not much
doing to alter quotations, which are hardly Rae
tained ; an auction sale of Coffee being made at I
decline. Iron is without demand and very dull,
and prices altogether unsettled. Rides--Nothing
doing. Naval Stores—Rather more doing. Oils
are inactive, and most kinds are lower. Pro
visions, with reduced stocks, are selling mostly in
a retail way only, at lower figures. Seeds remain
inactive, bat Cloverseed is scarce, and wanted at
previous quotations. In Teas, no alterations to
notice. Tobacco is unchanged and very quiet.
Whiskey is more active, and for Wool the demand
is limited and prices nearly nominal. The Dry
Goods trade has been pretty much at a stand—the
fall business about over. There is no material
change to notice in the prices of the leading arti
cles of cotton and woollen manufacture, but the
disposition to shorten credit is becoming more
general, most of the large Eastern manufacturing
companies having limited the time forselling their
goods to six months. The retail trade has, how
ever, been very active, and most of the large
houses are closing out their stocks at very low
figures for cash.
BRE6DSTUPPB.—The receipts of all kinds are
moderate for the season, but the market, with a
limited demand both for export and home consump
