When such a woman, the daughter and the

Sovereign, her daughter, is lightly spolcen of ?
A. short time ago we publisbed the result of the
running fur the Cambridgeshire Stakes, at the
Newmarket Houghton Meeting, on the 27th ult.
We gave such details as we could find in the daily
London papers. Wo have just received (by the
City of Washington mail steamer) what may
bo considered as the official account of the race,
contained in Bell's Life in. Landon for November
1. • So much has been said touching the fortunes
of the American horses, On the English turf, that
wo aro persuaded that many of our readers will
be gratified at receiving come authentic and cor
reeled particulars which wore not given in the
former rather hasty report.
The Cambridgeshire Stakes, we may promise,
wore won thus, in a single heat :
Idr. T. Parr's Odd Trick, by Sleight of Rand, 3 yre,
7 et 4 lb, O. Fordham
Lord J. Scott's 51cestieeima, 8 yre, 6 et. 5 lb,
Mr Jackson's Bsuuterer, 3 pre, 8 et. 12 lb, (In 3lb
ex.) J. Osborne 3
The space ran over was the Cambridgeshire
Course, of 1 mile 240 yards ; the race was ran in
2 minutes 10 seconds, 0 seconds more than in 1855
And 1858; there were 185 subscribers, of 25
eovereigoe each ; 88 of these paid £5 forfeit; and
81 horses (Inoludiug Mr. Ten Broeok's Prioress
and Babylon) actually started. The nett value
of the Stakes, as won, was 11,810. Tho running
was made on Tuesday, Oct. 27.
At Newmarket, on the previous Saturday, says
Bell's Life, " seven to ono was the highest offer
'on the field, and Mmetissima had the decided cull
of El Hakim; but neither was in particular de
mand, the two animals in most force being Prior
else and Tricolor, the former of whom was backed
radar freely at eleven and ten to oar, whilst the
latter, who had boon ' knocked out' by offers to
bet cite thousand to ten against her the day be
fere,,advaneed to fourteen to one (takers) on the
strength of having ' cleaned oat' the whole of the
Woodyat-es lot in the interim !" The odds were
thirty-three to one against Odd Trick, and in the
evening there was a "move" at tho city ren•
dezvous about the American nags, which resulted
In Prioress being sent bask to twenty-five to one,
and Babylon becoming as good if not a better
favorite than hie stable companion, but without
the outlay of much money.
Thin arose from two reports—one that Prioress
bad been worsted hi:Babylon on a trial, and
another that Prioress . had pulled itp lame the day
before. That these reports were, not long credited
was pretty evident front the eagerness with which
the few bets that were Offered against Prioress were
snapped pp in "well-informed quarters," which
soon caused such a reaction Julies favor that during
the 'short stoppage at the Harwich 'junction en
route as little as ten to ono was taken about the
mare, and ono thousand to thirty offered against
Babylon. As a sequel to the mystery it was hinted
that' a preconcerted "telegram" was forwarded
from Newmarket to London on baturday afternoon,
containing advice to "lay against Prioress and
hack Babylon," and to that the movement was at
tributed ; for (says Bell's Life,) on reaohing New
market we were credibly informed there was no:roal
cause for alarm to the Yankee maio's backers, and
amongst the select circle at the subscription room
in the evening she was quite as good a favorite as
El Hakim.
After the races, on Monday, Oot. 26, the betting
altered. Odd Trick was in !thong demand at ono
hundred to eight, white Prioress and Mcestistima
went book a little, and ono thousand to ton, and
one thousand to fifteen were offered against Saun
terer. There were inquiries after Babylon, and
one thousand to fifteen bet against him.
On Tuesday, the day of the race, besides many
of the; British nobility, there wore present a CODBI•
derablo number of foreigners, including several
leading members of the Prenoh Jockey Club,
namely, the Duke de Pltejames, Count F. do Lai
Grange, Viscount Lauriston, Monsieur Robot, and I
°there. In the betting on the field, the French
mare (Mademoiselle do Chantilly) and T r i co l or
were in strong force, and both gave hicestissima
the go-bye, although the latter loft off very firm, as '
did Odd Trick and Artillery, whilst 'Whistling
Willie, after all Bora of prices, from ono thousand
to ton downwards had been laid against him with
'the !sat four 'and twenty hours, returned to his
'old price of twenty to one. Prioress had few
supporters at last when it transpired that m r ,
Ten - Breed's own boy, (Tanksley,) who rode her ,
in' the Cesaretoitrh, was "up," vice Ford/taut,

Why do the Philadelphia banks, the Third
street note-shavers, and your city money edi
tors, unite in crying down, and discrediting
Pennsylvania country bank notes?
If you did not have country currency you
would not have any. Why? Because the city
banks notes were nearly all run in upon them
when they suspended, and they have taken
good care not to let them out again.
But why not lake and pay out—lean out—
the country notes, particularly when they will
not pay out their own 1 Aro they afraid to
keep them over night In their vaults 1 If they
arc, it is a guilty fear, that is calculated to
make the country banks be very chary about
trusting their specie, by the million, in the
bands of city bankers, to be paid out in case
of trouble, as was done by the Bank of Penn
and no doubt some of the others.
Ought not the city banks to have as much
confidence In the country banks as the latter
have had in the former? It is a bad rule that
will not work both ways. For the last seven
years the city banks have had a monopoly of
country bank specie ; an addition of about a
million to their capital, that was banked upon,
the saute as deposits; and now cannot they
trust the country banks four short months?
Are the country banks not safe ? Are the
city banks safe ? What constitutes safety in
a bank 7 Specie and other available assets.
Well, the city banks paid out all their specie,
and part of the specie of the country banks
that ought to have been held sacred, during
the run upon them. The country banks saved '
their specie.
Then, as to the other assets, what are they?
Mainly bills receivable. And whose bills re
ceivable are the safest? Where have all the
failures and suspensions taken place? Why,
unfortunately for the city banks, they have
nearly all taken place in Philadelphia. The
gilt-edged suspended paper of the commission
merchants, the heavy manufacturers, and the
extensive Jobbers, fill the banks' portfolios to
the tuna of millions, and front twelve to forty
eight months is the lime that the banks arc
obliged to carry HI
What country bank is saddled with such an
incubus? None, unless it went out of its
legitimate sphere—refludng loans to its own
customers to buy this fancy paper, at usurious
rates; and if there are any such, they ought
to be wound up by the strong hand of the law.
There aro scarcely any failures or suspen
sions in the country, and you may rest assured
that the old banks in the interior of Pennsyl
vania, that were in good credit in August last,
aro as safe as the city banks, and I contend
safer, because their bills receivable aro of a
bettor character. And why are they of a
better character 7 Because either the drawer
or endorser of almost every note is an owner
of real estate or an owner of valuable real
property, that not affected much by mercan
tile moistens, whilst the gilt-edged paper of
the city banks has nothing to student it but
goods in store, of a perishable character, notes
in a portfolio that may or may not be paid,
and ledger debits. Whilst the termer is almost
invariably paid in fun. Tho latter aro apt to
be compromised at fifty cents in the dollar.
Bete, I think, I have given a reason why
country bank-notes aro as safe as city; and
inasmuch as the latter brought the suspension
upon us, and then ran to the Governor in hot
haste to get legislation, they would do well to
carry out that legislation in good faith, and
with a good grace, lest they get some less fa

"Tag PRESS of the 4th inst. contained a let

,I'dnint. - profess to bo much of a political
economist, and only bring to my aid the plain
"Cohinion-sense of an ordinary business man ac
coition:led to do his own thinking.
'The 'Brat of "V. B. F.'s" fallacies that I
, Shalt notice, and which is the " burden of his
,song,"ls the silly and ridiculous "scare crow"
of-which wo hear so much, "balance of trade."
- He says: "During the last eleven years, from
. A 846.10 1856, inclusive, we havo bought foreign
wares and merchandise to the amount of
82,2 44 ,527,061, and in the same period we
Itave, Sold to other nations breadstuffs and
'other productions to the amount of $2,029,-
- 172,496 7 4eaving a balance against us, taking
1 tbo' Woven years together, of $222,854,165."
Oh' Mise statistics he bases a long argument
Ito show the suffering stato of our country—
jhafit has been impoverished to the extent of
; this balance—that it Is the cause of our present
diftlanltles, and on the strength of it, utters a
truism :that no one 'doubts, viz: "Nations
and- 13tdirkluais, to be prosperous, must live
Wain. Asir income," taking it /or granted
that he has proved by the above figures,
that we, as a nation, have not lived within
our income. le has taken the eleven years
SpeCeedhig the tariff or 1846, and claims that
this "balance of trade" is an effect of that
tariff, (if so, a strong argument in its favor, as
I , show directly;) but this does not look like
fairnosa, to say the least of it, in " C. B. F.,"
fOk the reason that the very table or statement
of the Secretary of the Treasury from which
he takes his statistics commences in the year
1821; add shows the same proportionate bal.
aneOliMng the twenty-ffvo years previous to
18.46;anil the footings of the table show the
excess pf imports over exports from 1821 to
18514nolusive, to be $684,418,505. To any
Ope- Ikequaintod with the subject, it is mille
nnia/4y to 'say that the figures produced by
"C. B. F." prove exactly the reverse of what
he claims for them, and that this "balance of
trade," - instead of being an evidence of loss, is
a elear_evidence of gain.
, Not}.ao not intend to go into a long ar
ray of figures and statistics, but appeal to the
common sense of any man, and ask him, if ho
otter knew' or heard of, on God's earth, since
the world began, of any country or nation that
has grown, in all the elements of wealth anti
greatness, to the extent that we have, with this
"balance ,of trade," , uniformly against us.
From the Organization of the Government in
1790, to the present hour, where can vaa_atsa
auji e_vAnutsqrse - mM c „ a, and States that bare
Vora carairound us—the forests redeemed,
apd the lauds brought into cultivation—the in
numerable manufactories and mines in suc
cessful operation—the thousands of miles or
railroads and canals that have been created,
and all within the period above referred to,
with this "balance of trade" always against
us t Why, the Hinglv State of Galifornia, the ac
quisition and Creation of the eleven years re
ferred to by C. B. F., is worth more than sat
ticlent to cover the two hundred and twenty
two millions of his "balance of trade."
I might rest the argument here; but to make
the subject plain, and to show the real cause
and effect of this 'balance of trade," the
modus optimal by which it is brought about,
I will giro a simple illustration, that « C. 8.F."
or no one else can fail to understand, and can
then judge whether it is for good or evil.
A merchant ships to a foreign port—litteana,
for instance—one thousand barrels of flour,
costing here sti per barrel; it is entered at the
custom house 115 an export of $6,000. Sup
pose it to be sold at Havana for $8 tho hat rel—
sB,ooo, clear of costs and charges. Suppose,
further, that this sum Ito invested in sugar and
shipped to this port; it will, of course, be en
tered at the custom house as an impua of
$B,OOO. Item, then, is u case where, accord
ing to the custom house returns, the import
exceeds the export $2,000; yet the merchant,
part and parcel of us, has gained that amount
by the operation, and we lino received $B,OOO
worth of sugar labor for $ll,OOO worth of finite
labor, and are benefited to that extent. To still
further simplify and illustrate the au oct, sup
pose " C. B. F." (hailing liven an iron district,
he may perhaps ho interested in that article)
has in Lebanon 100 tons of pig iron costing and
valued there at $2O per ton—s2,ooo; he sends it
to his agent in this city, invoiced and charged at
that price; it is therefore an export from Lebanon
of $2,000; supposo his agent sells it at $24 per

dise, which ho forwards to Lebanon. There,
then, is an export from the town of Lebanon
of $2,000, and an import into it of $2,100.
8.F," a citizen of Lebanon, is $lOO tither
than ho was, and the whole community is bene
fited, for it has received $2,100 worth of mer
chandise for $2,000 worth of its labor. But au
cording to the theory of "C. 11. F.," and
those who think with him, the town of Leba
non must be in a woeful condition, for its im
ports exceed its exports, and tho c , balance of
trade" is $4OO against it. Now, reverse the
order of things. Suppose the agent in this
city should sell the iron of "C. 11. F." for
only $lO per ton—sl,ooo—and invest that
amount in merchandise, sending it to Lebanon.
In that case, C. B. F" would lose $lOO ; the
town of Lebanon would lose, and be so much
poorer. But, says Mr. "C. B. F.," Lebanon
is in a glorious condition, its exports CATeed
its imports, and the "balance of trade" is
$4OO in its favor. I shall pay my compliments
to "C. B. F." again. V.

Our special correspondent telegraphs us from
Louisville, on Saturday night', that the steamer
Republic, Captain Stewart, had arrived from St.
Louis. She reports that sixteen coal boats (the
same that descended the Falls last week for tho
Memphis and New Orleans markets) were sunk
during the storm early on Wednesday morning, in
the Ohio and Mississippi rivers, in sight of Cairo.
The weather being exceedingly cold, night dark,
and the river unusually rough, only twenty of the
men were saved. It is supposed that at least one
hundred 711011 were drowned. The steamer High
flyer, Captain T. T. Wright, reports encountering
the storm in the Mississippi river, between Rick

sunken canal boats near Hickman. The steamer

[From the New 'Sark Daily Times of Tuesdayi
The announcement that the Adriatic was posi
tively to sail at noon, yesterday, drew thousands
to the dock at the foot or Canal street, and out
upon all the pier•heade along the North River to
witness her departure. Au - hour before the time
of departure arrived the sheds upon the dock, and
all the available standing-room which would
afford a view, were occupied by dense masses of
people, who waited with great interest to see her
There being a strong flood tide still running, and
a gale blowing from the southward, three small
tugs wore sent for to moist in canting her bow off
shore, so that she could go out without striking
the stern of the steamer Atlantic*, which lay at
the head of the pier. When them toga were en
gaged it was not known that the Webb would re
turn from below in time to render the required
assistanao ; she, however, did arrive by half-past
eleven o'clock,, but the small boats were permitted
to take the hawser, At precisely twelve o'clock
the feats were cast off, and the toga attempted
to swing her head clear of the dock. The tide and
wind were so strong, however, they made but little
impression, and it was evident they would have to
call in the assistance of the Webb, which was lying
at the pier above. Captain Hazzard was then
hailed and requested to take the hawser. The
next instant the Webb was in motion, and had
passed half her length ahead of the steamer, when
the order was suddenly countermanded, and the
Adriatic started out of the dock ; before the Webb
could reverse her motion the Adriatic's stern
struck the Webb upon the port bow, making a
slight indentation, also chipping a mail niece out
of the Adriatic's stem. In swinging clear of the
Wobb's flag-staff caught the end of the Adriatie's
outrigger, arid broke it off. The mistake of at
tempting to clear the dock with so little sheer was
instantly apparent. As the tide took her bows,
the tugs were utterly powerless, and she was
•srrung heavily against the end of the pier, carry
ing away some of 'the piles, and crashing in the
side of one of her Francis' life boats against
the projecting stern of the Atlantic. Three
or four slats of the wheel-house were also
broken in, and the corners of several floats
of her wheels were broken- off. This was the
principal damage done. W th some slight eoratehing
of her paint sbe floated clear of the dock, and in ten
or fifteen minutes more she we, headed for the
Narrows. Cheer on cheer arose from the multi
tudes, es the guns of the Adriatio announced her
fairly under way upon her first voyage across the
Atlantic. As she passed down ahe was saluted by
several guns from each of the following steamers:
Atlantic*, English steamer City of Glasgow, Her
mann, Ericsson, City of Washington, (8r.,) Quaker
City, Black Warrior, Philadelphia and Roanoke.
The Cunard steamer Arabia bad all her flags fly
ing, and when the Adriatic passed her dor& she
fired a salute of nine guns, the Adriatic , gracefully
dipped her ensign, and replied to each salute with
her own guns. In the midst of this general de
monstration of good will from all the steamers in
the harbor, the omission of a salute Item the Ariel,
Vanderbilt's steamer, was remarked. - • ,
She passed the flag-staff of the Battery at 12
o'clock and 33 minutes, and was just 40 minutes in
going to Fort Hamilton, 9 miles, her engine mak
ing but eleven turns per minute. The ensign upon
Port Hamilton was dipped as she passed, and the
civility was acknowledged on beard the Adriatio,
by a similar movement of signals.
After passing below the Narrows, the Webb ran
ahead about two miles, when the Adriatic was oh-'
served to slow her engines, and blow off steam,
whereupon the Webb returned a short distance to
Inquire the cause. On nearing the steamer, Capt.
West informed the tug that the packing boxes
around the pistons had become heated, and the en
gine was slowed to allow them to cool. This
caused about half an hour's detention, the steamer
all the time going at II moderate rate.
Before she reached the Southwest Spit, however,
a full bead of steam was put on, and the Webb
found it as much as she could do to keep company
with her. In passing Sandy Hook she attained a
speed of about fourteen miles an hour. The strong
southerly gale against the ebb tide caused a heavy
swell on the bar; but while every vessel In sight
was plunging heavily, and the sea was washing
across their decks, the Adriatic seemed not to be
in the elightest degree affected by it. At 3 o'clock
she stopped her wheels off the bar, and the yawl of
the pilot-boat Elwood Walter ran alongside, and
took out Mr. William Maxwell, her pilot, who came
on board the Webb. The company assembled for
ward and gave three hearty cheers, when. at 31
o'clock, the Adriatic started upon her first A Bantle
voyage. Her first night at sea will he a dark and
stormy one, affording a good opportunity to test the
advantages of the calcium light. Mr. Yule, the
secretary of the company, Mr. Collins's son, Mr.
Craig, Mr. Livingston, John Dunham, Esq , and
several other gentlemen, were on board the Webb.
The Adriatic is advertised to sail from Liverpool
on the 9th of December, and is expected back here
on the 15th.
