Etenjx« Edition.— Owing to an accident to our machinery, by which our power press has been temporarily disabled, tve are under the necessity of suspending the publication of our evening edition for a few days, until the damage can be repaired. In the mean time the morning Herald will be furnished to subscribers lo the evening paper.

" POPIhAR LOANS. The great financial feature of our times is fibe System of popular loans. The scheme owes its extension, if not its inception, to the present Emperor of the French. With the view oT drawing from their private hoards the sums required to defray the expenses of the Crimean war, he offered extraordinary inducements to parties to make investments in the French funds, ne raised large amounts by appeals to avarice, and to the gambling propensities of the French people. The Bourse became a scene of daily excite ment—a theatre lor gambling operations in stocks. The two modes by which he his object were a high rate of interest, and mak ing the stocks accessible to parties with lim ited means, by putting their subscription price so low as to make their purchase easy. The French who were, before this stimulus was presented to their desire for gain, a hoarding people, readily fell into this adroit scheme for rendering the small sums scatter ed throughout the empire and contained in numberless privato hoards, available for the public service. If this had been all, the scheme would, perhaps, have merited com mendation, as making government loans the index lo public opinion; but there was con nected with it a series of lottery drawings, which were an evident provocative to that gambling spirit to which human nature is so prone, that it requires repression rattier than encouragement. A fatal stab was given to public morality. England, which has raised sucli large sums by public loan, has never resorted to any but legitimate methods in raising tnyiey. A higher than the usual rate of interest is the only inducement offered to capitalists by that government, if we except those forms of an nuity that promise a perpetual income to those who for this advantage are disposed to part with their money. The baits held out to attract the holder of small sums arc not in fact required in England. The sums waul ed are raised without difficulty. The system of public loans is part and parcol of the gen eral financial system of that country. The jarge capitalists, the Barings, Rothschilds. &c., are the takers of the loans, and sell them to other parlies, whp dispose of them in such amounts as meet the wants of the general public. The number of small hold ers of the British public debt far exceed those who remain possessors of large sums. The United States, in their recent loans, have adopted two of the features by which the French scheme is characterized. Tiny have offered high rates of interest, and have made their loans acceptable to parties with limited means, but they have avoided the vice of the French system, i. e., connecting with their loans the principles of gambling adventure, In a series of lotteries. They hare adopted the best portion of that system pf popular loans which attracts large numbers to the support oi government. Tub Roll of IToxor.— The War Depart ment has just published a pamphlet entitled the “801 l of Honor," giving the names of soldiers who died in defense of the American Union, and who were interred in the Nation al Cemetery in the District of Coluuibia.fnim August 3d, 1«B, to June 30th, 1805. The entire number is 20,727, of which 15,000 were whites, Including nearly 7,200 natives of America; 213 from England; 000 from Ireland; 530 from Germany, and 107 from Canada. About thirty other nationalities, in small proportions, are represented. The un known whites are 0,000. and the unknown blacks, or contrabands, 5,720. The ceme teries are kept in g'ood order, and the names ot the deceased, as far as known, are in scribed on the head-boards of the graves. Trre Rebec Cotton is England.—lt is said says a Washington despatch that the Government docs not assent to the doctrine of the Vice Chancellor of England, as pro nounced in the case of the United States against Prioleau. The United States are not likely to concede very soon that the Rebels are now or ever were a dt facto Government, nor very likely ever, to consent to derive ti tle to their own property through that im aginary concern, and being a foreign State, dealing with other Slates according to the customary methods, they are not especially likely to submit without process of attach ment to decrees which may 'be registered against'them by a court Os chancery sitting in Westminster UaU, CONTRACTIONS OF THE CURRENCY. It is a singular fact that, notwithstanding the immensity oi the i»rcaent monetary cir culation of this country, which' far exceeds that necessary to meet the requirements of trade in times not affectedßy the consequen ces ol war, occasional expansions and con tractions of the currency are experienced. We see the statement in a Northern paper ‘"one of those periods which have occa sionally come over the markets during the last four years, of a growing scarcity and in crease in the value of both paper money and of gold, prevails at the present time.” Tlie trade of the Southern cities, though comparatively limited during the few months that have elapsed since the cessation of hos ! tilities, has been affected iu like manner, as we have been informed by intelligent trades men ot our city. These occasional irregular ities of the financial system are only tempo ! rarv. j The currency and business of the county Ij g necessarily in an unsettled and feverish condition, and it is most probable that it may j continue so for some time. Great questions of political economyTiave been presented to the country by the changed condition of at ! fairs consequent upon the war, which can only be settled alter oareful investigation and the working of practical experiments which will require time for their consummation. — What llie future policy of the government will be in regard to the currency is not known. Congress will doubtless take the subject into consideration when it convenes. The power oi contracting and expanding the currency at will, as exercised in the Treasury Department, defeats, of course, all calcula tions in reference tlieicto, unless a knowledge of the movements of the government is taken in as tho most “important clement of the'estimates. It is said that there are some indications that the government expenses have been al ready so reduced that the currency is likely to be gradually contracted, unless the au thorities should otherwise decide, from mo tives of pecuniary and political expediency, which are at present unknown in financial and commercial circles. All calculations in regard to business ex tending into the future, can only be safely based on a knowledge of the operations con templated by the general government. It has been announced that there had been dis banded since April last 782,042 soldiers, and that 100,000 more would be disbanded in a short time. This large reduction of the army, though it involves large present pay ments, mu9t have greatly reduced the annual expenditures of the government and give them in a short time complete and undivided control of the currency. The Atlantia Cahlfi. ® The most sanguine begin to despair of the success of the Atlantic Cable. The British gunboat Spbynx arrived at Heart's Content on the 6th, having left the Great Eastern and the cable licet in latitude 53.42, longitude 20.02, on the 27th ult., since which time the Great Eastern has not been seen. The Clara Clarita, which left Port-nu-Basque on the 10th, has also arrived at North Sydney, and reports that no tidings of the Great Eastern had reached that point up to that time. It is sain that Eugineer Everett, whose experi ence in laying the first Atlantic Cable entitles his opinion to great respect, believes the lay ing of the second cable is now a failure, though Mr. Mackey, the telegraphic super intendent at Cape Race, hopeful. A special dispatch to thp New York Herald, dated Heart’s Content, 9th, says; “There are no signs of the big ship yet, and the cable people are beginning to give up all hope of her arrival. There were thousands of visitors here last week, but they are now going home disappointed.” Tub Guerilla Mosby. —A Washington despatch says that J. S. Mosby, who was ar rested on Wednesday night in Alexandria, left on Thursday evening for his home in Warrcnton, Ya., there to remain until the iurtlier ordcis of tho War Department. An other despatch says Colonel Mosby attracted a crowd wherever he .made iris appearance, and liis presence oe.casioned much indigna tion among the soldiers on duty iu Alexandria, lie came down from Warrcnton to be admit ted as a member of tbe bar, but Gem. Wells arrested him on tlie charge of having broken his parole. The Colonel briefly but respect fully controverted the point, aud the General telegraphed to tlie Secretary of War for in structions. f Gov. Holden lias issued a proclamation or dering an election for the members of a State Convention to be held on Thursday, Sept. 21. The •convention is to meet in Raleigh on Monday, Oct. 2. The Inspec tors of tlie Election are to be selected from Justices of the Peace already appointed. The amnesty proclamation of President John sou is to be particularly observod, and the Inspectors are to be very careful fn admin istering the oath to all who offer to vote, if they have not already done so. The same number of delegates are to be chosen as there arc members of the House of Com mons. Stormy Cabinet Session.— A Washington dispatch of the 11th inst. says: A long Cabi net session was held to-day, and report says a rather stormy one. The President's recon struction policy is understood to have been discussed in all its length and breadth, and his determination to adhere to it and to carry it out regardless of opposition or conse , quences, emphatically announced. Health of New Yobk A New York des patch of the 1 Ith inst. says—Cholera morbus is prevailing in. the city to an unusual extent, even for this season of the year, and the Health Inspector's mortality report for the week will probably show a large increase of deaths front that disease, for the propagation of which the prevailing •‘atmospheric con ditions,” the doctors say, are peculiarly fa vorable. Forged Letters.— A Washington despatch says the series of lettors published through out the country, purporting to come from Miss Clara Barton, the philadthropist, at An dereonville, turns out to have been forged here. These Jeltars detailed fresh horrors of the Andersonville prison. New York Gold and Con on Market,— 1 rom a private despatch received in this city, dated New York, August 14th, 1805, we learn that Gold, oil that date, was quoted from 142 to 142 1-2, Cotton 43. United States Marshal for 'Georgia.— H m. G. Dickson, of this city, has been E. S, Marshal for Georgia, Desperate Naval Engagement Be tween the Brazilians and Paraguayans. Fearful Slaughter and Defeat of Hie Paraguayans. By the arrival at Nqyv York on Friday of the steamship Sal adit), from Rio Janeiro, we have news from the River Plate to June 36, which gives an account of a severe naval en gagement between the Brazilian fleet and eight Paraguayan steamers and light floating batteries. The Journal de Recife, of July 13, gives the following account of this battle: TUE IJAVAI. BATTLE AT BIACBCKLO. The engagement took place on June 11, on the River Parana, near Kiacbuclo, which is about half a fegna below Corrientes, the cap ital of the Argentine Province of the sama name. The Paraguayan fleet consisted of eight steamers and six floating batteries, carryiug forty-seven guns, while the Brazilian squad ron consisted of nine steamers, with sixty two guns. The names of the Paraguayan steamers were Tarquary, the Admiral s ship; the Paraguay, the Marquez de Olinda, the Ygury, tde Salto, (which, some time ago, was taken from the Argentines,) the Ipora, the Jtjuby, and the screw steamer Ihera. The Brazilian fleet consist*! of the Amazo zonas, eight guns; Jehitinhouha, 8 guns; Belmonte, 8 guns; Araguary, seven guns; Ignatemy, seven guns; Pamahyba, eight guns; Beberibe, seven guns; Ypirangi, six guns; Mearim, seven guns. At 8 o'clock a. m. the Paiaguayan vessels were seen to descend the river, and at about 3 they were witliiu reach ot their enemy, and at once opened a furious tire. The Brazilian account, Uto only' one whicli has reached us, admits that the Paraguayans fought with the utmost bravery, and the result was for some time doubtful, until the Brazilian steamer Amazonas, being converted into a mm, made terrible havoc uinong the enemy’s fleet, sink ing three steamers, the Paraguay, Salto and Jcjubj’, and one floating bdttery, and com pelling one steamer and five batteries to sur render. The remaining four steamers, which were likewise considerably damaged, then retired. The battle lasted until 4 o'clock p. m. The Paraguayans, who supported the fire of their fleet by a land battery of thirty guns, arc reported to have lost fifteen hundred men of their squadron, and five huudred of the land battery. The Brazilians estimate their loss at about three hundred killed, wounded and missing. Nothing could exceed the ferocious valor of the Paraguayans. They all seemed de termined to conquer or to die. Among the wounded prisoners who fell into the hands of the Brazilians was Ruble, the commander of the Salto, one of the sunk steamers, and a brother of the commanding general of the Paraguayan army in Corrientes. His wounds were tenderly dressed by the commander-in chief of the Brazilian fioet, Barrosa, but Roble with his teeth tore off the bandages from his wounds, preferring death to captivity. Most of the commanders of the Paraguayan ves sels are among the dead. The whole artil lery, ammunition, banners, and an immense war material, fell into the hands of the vic tors. The Brazilians had to abandon the Jequi tinhouha and the Belmonte was likewise dis abled. Tlie Amazonas, Parnabyba and sev eral other vessels were badly damaged. The Brazilians flatted themselves with the hope that tne loss of the Paraguayans is ir reparable, as it is supposed tlmt, besides the four steamers which escaped, they have only one more steamer and two floating batteries at Assumption. The Brazilian fleet, on the other hand, was at once to be reinforced by four steamers and two gun-boats. Preparations for Preventing the Spread of Contagion. —The Secretary of State has transmitted to Simeon Draper, Esq., Collec tor of the port ot New York, letters fiom. the lion. Alexander W. Thayer, United States Consul at Trieste, and the Hon. I. W. Betir, United States Consul at Messina, ac companying a circular relative to the pre cautions which have been taken to prevent the cholera from extending its ravages over entire Europe. These documents have been placed in tlie hands of Collector Draper that the statements relative to tlie epidemic there in contained, and the means of prevention enumerated might be taken into considera tion. It is probable that the quarantine laws already regulating tlie sanitary affairs in the various ports of tlie United States will be enforced with redoubled stringency. A despatch says that owing to the im mense crowd at tlie President's House, on Saturday last, the -floors wore opened to all, the President holding a general levee. Hon. E. H. Eastman, a lawyer of Nashville, has been invited by the President to become his confidential Secretary, in order to facilitate the disposition of a good; deal of business brought before him. • An additional number .of Southern Post Offices have just been opened. Ford's Theatre is now being metamor phosed, the interior work having been taken out, and an iron floor is about being laid, in order to render the building fire-proof as far as possible. The Government teams are employed jn taking the refuss material, and in a short time everything will be in readi ness for occupancy by the new Bureau of Rebel Arch ires. The Secretary of the Navy lias directed that masters and ensigns of the regular navy, and midshipmen serviua on board any naval steamer, will hereafter be taught thoroughly his duty of steam engineering. From the 3d to the Bth of August, fifty six regiments, batteries and companies were blustered out ot the Unitod States service, by order of the Secretary of War.

What a calling! ‘-Mine Gotexclaimed the Dutchman, when be saw the monkey, “vat vill the Frenchman make next ?” The Siamese Twins.—A Fortress Monroe etter of the 4th says: Chang and Eug, the celebrated twins, came down on the City Point from Hicb mond, *n txmte for the Northern cities for ex hibition. It is five years since they were North. During the war they have remained at tlieu home, Mount Airy, Suriey county, N. C. Like most of Southern residents dur ing the war, they have suffered loss of prop erty from the depredations af soldiers and Southern conscription, and have entered on their present tour to recuperate their shatter ed tortunes. They are now in their fifty fifth year, and in good health, Increasing age has told on them somewhat, making more gray their hair, and adding to the wrinkles on their faces. From a conversa tion with them I leant that each has nine children, one six sons and three daughters, and the other six daughters and three sous. All the children ate perfectly formed. Eacli contributed a son Jo the rebel army; one of thorn was wounded and the other taken pri soner. Both say they loved the old Stays and Stripes ; but when their State seceded they considered it their duly to go with it. They left to-night on the ,Jas. T. Brady, Capt. I-midis, of the new Baltimore and Richmond line. THE HI KMAfc OF THE WILLUJI \ELSOY A KBMARKAIIEK •SORT —A WOMAN TWO DATS AFLOAT OK A SPAR WITH AN INFANT. In the steamship Bellona, (apt. Dixon, Just arrived at this port, were two steerage passengers, concerning whom a thrilling in cident is related. Franz Meyer, aged 23, and his wife, Anna, aged 19, from Canton 80- leure, Switzerland, were passengers in the ill-fated ship William Nelson, recently de stroyed by tiro at sea. In the contusion in cident to the efforts to save life, the husband and wife were separated. The husband was picked up by one of the ship's boats, which was soon fallen in with by the brig Mercury. Tlie w ife, young and </<(-•*-«/*, was not dis couraged at the uncertainty of her husband's fate, but prepared for her own safety. Self preservation could not suppress her womanly instincts so far as to ignore tlie feeble cries of Help from an infant only 14 days old, left to perish by its distracted parents, but regard less of her o#n state, she plunged, with her self-imposed charge, into the sea. For two whole days did this brave young girl support berself and the infant ofl tlie remnant of a ship's spar, without food or water, sustaining the infant's life by the moisture from her own lips! Late on the second day the same vessel in which her husband was saved, having ceas ed cruising, without hope of rescuing more lite, fell in with this heroine, and saved her and her little charge. Eventually tlie family were landed at Havre, The Prus sian Consul at that port look the charge of the infant, and its parents were supposed to have been lost with the wreck. Many ladies of Havre interested them selves to enable this brave young creature, with her husband, again to venture to cross the Atlantic in search of a Western home.— Destitute ot everything necessary as an out fit, having lost all, the kindness of the ladles at Havre was doubtless most acceptable, and on the Bcliona, although poverty was appa rent, a cleanliness in the family was quite noticeable. This heroine of real life, during her recent voyage in the Bellona, guve birth to a child. She is an object of interest to the benevolent ladies of New York, and is worthy to receive at their hands that aid, for the promptness of which they have a world-wide reputation. Dr. Blewitt, the Surgeon of the Bellona, has kindly offered to give authentic informa tion regarding this woman, as he possesses documents establishing the truth of the facts stated. How a Rebel Preacher was Received in Chicago.— A dispatch from Chicago to the Cincinnati Gazette of the 17th, says: Rev. John W. Pratt, Professor in the Uni versity of Alabama, at Tuscaloosa, preached in the Central Presbyterian Church last even ing. In introducing him, Rev. Mr. Brown, pastor of the church, rose and said: “Rev. John W. I’ratt, Professor iu the University of Alabama* at Tuscaloosa, will preach to you this evening. Professor Pratt was an old and intimate friend of mine in years goue by. He was a secessionist, but an honest one on principle. Professor Pratt preaches this even ing at my special request. He consented re luctantly, learing you would not be willing to hear him, but 1 told him that as the rebellion was over, and they had submitted to the au thority of the Government, and as he was now from heart a loyal Union man, there was not a man or woman of any congrega tion but would welcome him, aud gladly bear him preach. If I am correct in this judgment, will you please assent to it by arising to your feet.” Instantly the congregation rose to their feet, and it was easy to see by the light in the eyes of the men and women'that the wel come was from the heart. The Professor saw and felt it. Ilis sermon was one of great ability and beauty ot diction, aud was deliv ered with earnest eloquence. In his sermon he said: “I was honest. I thought we were right, and put my all, of money, pow er and influence, into the Confederacy. But the Confederacy is gone ; the theory of secession is exploded; slavery is dead, and I am con tent. God saw we needed punishment and disciplined and punished us. I think we shall now be a better, happier, and more progressive people than heretofore.” International Courtesies.— A black man who was liberated in Kentucky some five years ago, and who went to Africa as a prencher aud missionary,, recently arrived in Washington on private business, and brought a message of* respect to the President from the King of IJassas, accompanied by a re quest that the former should send him a rain coat, moaning one made of India rubber. The garment has been purchased, anil will be forwarded to his African Majesty iu due time. A. Seward.— The professional duties of Clarence A. Seward requiring his personal attention, he has relinquished his position as Assistant Secretary of State, aud has returned to New York. Financial ami Commercial.
