It is an editorial practice, w more honored
in the broach than the observance," to father
mistakes in newspapers upon the unfortunate
printor---or,' rather, upon, the complisitor, who
sets up tho type, while another actually prints
the paper. We made a Mistake, in an article
yesterday, but are sufficientlymazignanimous to
exonerate the compositor, and instead of seek
ing shelter under g , an . error of the . press,:'
frankly to admit that it is an editorial error.

of his political supporters with new peerages,
and with advancements in degree.
, Thus the Earl of Grosvenor was changed
Into "the most noble the Marquis or WEST

father'e Earldom; this estates—at that time

land, which originally belonged id ititi'Crown,
and was, sold to the Groitionor family for a
trifle. By degrees, as London increased,
particularly spreading to the west, as most greht
cities do, this land, swampy and barren as
I it was, came into request for building purposes.
GEORGE the Fourth, ashamed, of such a resi
dence as St. James's Palace, (which originally
was an hospital, and looks like one to this day,)
and tired of Carlton House, obtained author'.
teflon, from Parliament, to build another
Palace on the site of Buckingham House, in
Pimlico, formerly the property of his mother,
Queen CIIARLOTTE. In the centre of a swamp,
and only a few feet above the level of the
Thames, from which it is not a far distant, this
was, perhaps, the very worst situ in London
for a dwelling.
But upon it arose the present Buckingham
Palace, the town residence of Queen VICTO.
RIA, around which, with duo rapidity, soon ac
cumulated new squares and streets, the habi
tations of the rich and fashionable people of
the 'West End. Many of these squares and
streets; consisting of palatial houses, were
built on the Grosvenor ground, but not with
the Grosvenor money. The London practice
is to lease out the building lots, at so much
annual ground NIX; for the tenant to build
the houses' according to certain architectural
plates supplied by the ground landlord, so as
to secure uniformity of lippearance and con
struction. The ground. is generally leased : for
ninety-nine years, at the expiration of which
period it reverts to the landlord, together with
whatever edifice has been constructed upon it. •
Of course, as each of these houses comes

present Marquis of. WESTHINSTES, who may be

falls back, literally for nothing, as part
of the • Grosvenor estate, 'will bo worth
ten times as much. Whoever shall be Mar
quis of WESTMINSTER in the year 1900, may
estimate his London property at not less than
£1,000,000 to £1,500,000 per annum. A

Christ, and the other to the life and move

from his pulpit on last Sabbath, that be now

Vanden Phillips, at Concert Hall, on the
"Lost Arts." I agree with his opinion, that
the ancients wore our masters in many arts,
and that oven some of those which wo regard

3llsni. I would call the attention of the lecturer
tolt fact of which he is riot perhaps aware, as

Mr ? Phillips spoke of the balloon, and said
that, for his part, ho had long flutter:a, himself
that this was at least ono achievement that the
modohns might claim a title to; but even this
had been wrested from us by a recent disco

bf Nineveh, the Talmud, a Jewish work,
speaks of a balloon in which "Doeg and AM
opbel ascended." There can be no mistake
about this, for the Talmud uses precisely
those words which express the character of
a balloon. It says that they west up in a
tower whir& flew in the air—thus describing
.the very shape and form of a balloon of
; modern times. This is to be found in Treatise
gatittethim, sec. Iteleek, page IN.
lt commentator, who lived before the modern
era of Balloons, remarks “that they went up to
perform witchcraft." Lando, in his Encyclo

as, Witchcraft, and •that our commentator
merely satirizes that superstitious spirit which
aseribos every scientific discovery to a know
-ledge of the "Black art."
This is not the only scientific fact which tra
argon and history record, but which, from not
, being generally known, the present age takes
to Ruff all the credit as being the solo inven
tors of. The Itiblo Itself shows us that many
things wore known which wo pretend the
ancients were ignorant of. Do we not fro

that the world was round 1 and yet, King Solo

used by Job.

ration, the action of the gases on the lungs,
the production of internal heat in the system—
these and other phenomena, as also the circu

1303/BAY, October 3
At length I am tibia to announce to you the fall
of the revolted capital of Northwestern India, or,
if that appellation be not strictly correct, of the
ancient chief city of the Mogul =pin), in which a
faithless soldiery had sought to re-erect tho inde
pendent throne of the descendant of Daher. Delhi
is once more in possession of the Dritish. Our in
formation at present Is more scanty than could be
desired, owing partly to the dawk communication
being unluckily intercepted between Labor° and
Mooltan. But the main facts have reached us
from so many quarters na to leave no doubt what
ever that the place woe assaulted with F11V.30” on
the 14th of September, when a permanent lodg
ment was °fretted, that during the four or five fol
lowing days further advances and acquisitions on
the city were made, and that finally on the 20th
the whole of the apace enclosed within the walls
was in our possession. I should observe, however,
that we have not connived as yet such mltain evi
dence of the truth of the latter part of this story
as of that of the former.
The proceedings of the 14th, 15th, and 111th aro
known to ae. however, compendiously from the
official bulletins issued by the chief commissioner
at Lahore, and founded, as you know, on telogra•
phio messages from Deihl. But of the final occu
pation on the 20th, we have only heard by an ex
press from the residency at Joypore in Itajpootana,
which reached Lord Blphinstono by way of Ahme
dabad yesterday. It la dated at devrioro on the
evening of the 23d, and is to tho etfont that the
news hadjust boon received at the residency, both
from the Rajah and also from the Yoked or Minis
ter of the Nawab of Jhuljur, to whom it may be
presumed to have been forwarded by his master,
a chief resident In the immediate neighborhood of
Delhi. Thus the tidings of our ultimate and coin
pleto success rest at present on native authority
only, but as the natural sequel and compliment of
our undoubted triumph of the 14th they are uni
versally oredited.
Rat to complete, so far as my present materials
will allow, the story of the avenging army. When
I closed my last fetter we bed heard that the
heavy siege train woe expected to roach the camp
in a very few days, and that works wore being
erected wherein to mount the guns on their arrival.
While the troops were thus busy the enemy was
inactive. There were none of those desperate
sallioe from the city that eharaoterized the early
days of the siege, when day by day successive
waves of mutiny were shattered against the
heightg of the British position ; anti though their
artillery was not silent, the only seeeess attained
was on the night of tho let of September, when a
shell from the battery on the further side of the
river (of which I wrote in my last) burst among a
ploket of the 01st, in front of the Metcalf house,
killing two men and wounding swell.
On tho morning of the 4th arrived in camp the
long-looked-for aelge train of between thirty anti
forty heavy guns, howitzers, and mortars, with large
quantities of ammunition. escorted by the remain
ing wing of the Bth foot, two more etimpanies of
the 61st, and a wing of the let Belooch battalion
of the Bombay army. On the 6th came in, front
Meerut, a most valuable reinforcement in two
hundred of the oat rifles, and ono hundred :trai
ling recruits. To the latter were added forty.
five men of the oth lanoore, The plaeo of this de
tachment was supplied, at Meerut, by the 7th
Punjaub Infantry. On the following day the army
was further strongthoned by the 4th Puujoub
rifles, under Caßtaid Wilde, and by some troops
of the Thoond Rajah.
On the night of the 7th, the advanced batteries
intended for the destruction of the Moue bastion
' and the adjacent curtain were tinned with ten
heavy guns, at about six hundred nod fifty yards
' from the bastion, and an enclosure within half
that distance of the walls, called the Koodsea
Bub, was occupied by a deteahment of infantry
and artillery. In these operations we titstalped
to loss of something under fifty killed and wounded,
two officers being among the former, Lieutenants
Hildebrand, of the Bengal Artillery, and Banner
man, of -the Bombay Tucillers,. attached to the
Beelooohes, the latter a promising young Mama,
well known to myself and to many people here,
and by all regretted.
The next day was marked by the opening of the
advanced batteries on the Moron bastion and by
the arrival in °amp of the Juirmieo or Cashmere
contingent. Meanwhile use onglnoine wore hard
at work in the erection of other batteries. tin the
11th a mortar battery opened on the More,' from
the Koodsea Thigh at little mote than three hun
dred yards, and upon the Cashmere' and Water
bastions a fire was commenced from sixteen heavy
guile and howitzers and ton largo mortars, planted
at, two points in front. of the onolosuro known as
Ludlow castle, and so noticed. in Wyld's map. On
the 12th the attack on the Water bastion was
st ren gthened by four eighteen-pounders awl two
light (tive-and-adialf inch) mortars (increased af
terwards apparently to eight of the former and
twelve of the latter), planted et two hundred mid
two hundred and fifty yards from the wall and
the custom-house compound near the river.
The fire of the enemy was most severe upon
the luet.named batteries, which were exposed
not only to the guns of the Water bastion, but
to those in the old inner fort of Selitegliur, and
also to those on the other side of the river. Mere
Captain Felon, of the artillery, described as a
most enterprising and excellent officer, foil, shot
through the head. No other fatal casualty oc•
ourred among the officers during those days, nor
dews the general less appear to be revere conside
ring the proximity of the batteries to the walls,
And the tenacity of the defence, ,the enemy , keep
ing up a vigorous fire of musketry from rifle-pits
and patches of jungle, oven after their heavy gues
were rendered unserviceable. This latter result
was rapidly produced by the precision and weight
of the oonstant discharges from our batteries
By the 13th the Cashmere bastion was In ruins,
and had long mood to return a shot to the fire
which was continually kept up on it. The red
joining curtains on either side were similarly ru
ined, end from the debris of the Moreo bastion only
a lighVgun or two at Intervals replied to the heavy
shot and shell that were poured Into it. At the
other end of the works the Water bastion had suf
fered scarcely lees severely, its extreme magazine
was blown °p i and alight gun which enfiladed our
batteries bad boon silenced, Anti now, the me-
merit for the assault drawing near, General Wilson
promulgated an excellent order, in which he says'
he "need hardly remind the troops of the cruel mur
murders committed on their officers anti comrades,
es well nstiminvives and children, to move them in

Point of assault was the breach at the Cashmere
bastion. One column, however, consisting of
Ghoprkas and the newly arrived Jununoo con
tingent, was directed to make a diversion by at
tacking the liisliengunge suburb, which lies out
side the Lahore gate, on the western side of the
city, and, if it succeeded in carrying' tho suburb,
to assault the gate itself. Mut the suburb was
occupied by the enemy In throe, with a.battery
of heavy guns. The Cashmerian troops behaved
indifferently, and In spite 9f the efforts of the
brave Oboorkas, the column was repulsed. Its
commanding officer, Major 'Reid, of the Sirmoor
battalion, is among the wounded of the day; but
on the northern silo of the City all wont well.
The troops entered at the breach with no serious
anti, spreading to the loft and right,

Water bastion to the Cahul gate, including the
Oasluned gate and bastion, the Mores gate and
bastion, the English church, Skinner's house, and
the grounds about."
Tlie principal lose sustained by the assailants
was duo to the obstinate resistance they mot with
in clearing their way along the ramparts to the
Cobol gate, and afterwards in an attempt to pene
trate beyond that point into the denser parts of tho
city in the direction of the Jumna Mtuoid. In all
the loss amounted to about five hundredakilled
and wounded. Five officers aro reported to have
been slain—Tandy, of the Bengal Engineers;
M'Barnoi, of the late 55th Native Infantry;
Murray, of the Guides; Bradshaw, of the Sled

mutineers I do not observe, even an estimate.
It is dnly said that bodies of them were seen to be
retreating both to the south of the city, iu the
direction, of Kootub. and also across Ate bridge of

Our victorious infantry, prudtently recalled from

the renowned Irregular Horseman, Skinner, and
now known to us by his name, to the natives as Se

Although the oyes of all the world havo boon
fixed upon Delhi, and it has been naturally con
cluded the turning point of the etntggle, yet we
are not to suppose the difficulties of the war over;
nor is this event altogether without is drawbacks.
The osptgrp pfclhip must have the etfect of libe

them whether to retreat to sown strong place lower
down the Jumna, so ns to gain at least a few dap'
breathing time, or to join Nona Sahib and the in

The probability is that the greater part will wan
der over the country in sutlicient bodies, and at
such o tlistonce from our troops, as to live by the
indiscriminate plunder of the peaceable inhabi

honorable to live by the sword than by the
plough; that it is a safe profession, and ono
that will Mold out when drought or the col
lector starves out the husbandman,• and that it
does not matter very much under what gag the
trade is carried on, or whether under any flag.
Till the great wars in which wo finally broke up

scarcely be considered right that the afoot of this
war should be to, throw things back into their old

Musspitutips or Ilia ova fondly look back to as the

apprehension their desultory attempts to Inter

all that we fear. By this arrival wo learn the

The Pope is of opinion that the taking of Delhi
deprives the rebels in India of, perliap,, the only
moral force which woe left them, and that the es eat,
while reestablishing British power in India, will

a war of extermination, which wag regrettable in

Tho Prase . takes a loss favorable viow of the
news. It says: Until the receipt of more ample
information we cannot venture to say that the fall
of Deihl roalins all the hopes that wore built upon
that event. Tho r• reverse of the modal" is that
the English found Delhi denuded of provisions,
and that the insurgents have cut off their comma
nications, so that, according to ono despatch, the
position of the conquerors is exceedingly critical.
If this despatch is ourreat,,and if, insteal of being
besiegers, the Englith have become the besieged,
and are to be shut up in Delhi as they have long
boon at Imeknow, the only advantage et their sue

to attach to the possession of the residence of tho
Great Mogul.
Tho Patric thinks that since the Kingmf

were able to effect their retreat, the "brilliant

next station where he had friends, but dumped
him down In the dark. The•court decided that a
passenger is a passenger, if he behaves himself,
even if his fare is not yet paid. The conductor's
reason was simply that be thought the money

This was a ease in which Monypcnny, the owner
of a canal boat, laden, with exit, brought suit
against the defendants, who were captains of the
steamers Richard Stockton and Thomas A. Morgan,
in 1854. The specific charge was, that the prose
cutor had, through the acts of the defendants, bait
hie boat and cargo in the river Delaware. The
prosecution brought forward as a witness Mr. Moore,
who testified, that in July of the year already
named he commenced to raise from the bottom of the
Delaware a cortaincanal boat, laden with upwards
of two hundred tons of coal. The boat had been
accidentally sunk at one of tho Port Richmond
coal wharves. The witness, to pursuance ot his
plau of operations, had towed the boat about two
and A half miles above this point, intending to
bring bar on shore. Having succeeded in this, he
made preparations to raise her above the surface,
but as the swells which were caused by the
steamers Stockton and Morgan, materially in.
jured the operations of the witness, he waited
upon the captains of the steamers, and requested
them, upon reaching tho point iu the river where
the sunken bout was being raised, to slacken their
speed, and thereby cause less commotion in the
water. The captains bud consented to do EO, and
bad fulfilled their promise for four or five days.
At the expiration of that time the witness had sec.
needed in raising the boat three foot above tho
surface of the river, with a fair prospect of ul
timately placing her in a position of safety.
The two steamers, however. just at that juncture,
it Is alleged, eamo down the river at great speed,
causing such n swell as to endanger the lives of
witness and his gang of laborers, and to knock out
the bottom of the half-raised canal-boat, and there
