New York, Nov. 20.—The steamships City of London and City of New York has arrived, with Queenstown dates to the 9lh inst. The rebel cruiser Shenandoah had arrived in the Mersey. She has been delivered over to the naval authorities. Capt. Waddell states that the first infor mation he received of the close of the war was on the 30th of August, 1865. - The London Star says if the Shenandoah is claimed by the American Government there can ba no reason for refusing to give her up. Lord John Russell has been installed as Premier and Lord Clarendon as Minister of Foreign Affairs. Liverpool Cotton Market. Liverpool, Nov. 8, A. M.—The cotton market is flat and very irregular, although American is not quoted at a decline. Other descriptions are generally a quarter (1-4) to a half (1-2) penny lower. The sales for two days were 8,000 bales, 2,000 of which were taken by speculators aud exporters. Mobile Cotton Market. Mobile, Nov. 20.—The sales to-day were •oo bales. Middlings are quoted at 4$ a 50c. Good demand. Pnces firm. The Suicide of Hon. Preston King. The New York Herald of the 15th says : “In 1836 Mr. King was confined for a year m an asylum lor tue iusaoe, and it is sup posed that too close attention to his multi farious duties had resulted in a return of the disease. Mr. King had been ailing for some time past, and about teu days ago it was ob served that his conduct was so peculiar that his friends deemed it advisable to select one <of their number to keep him company. On Sunday night, therefore, the .deceased and a relative retired to the Collector’s sleeping apartment in the Aator House. At three o’clock on Monday morning, while his roommate was still slum bering, Mr. King rose, dressed himself aud left the house, subsequently returning. At about half past seven o'clock Mr. King again quitted tike hotel. According to the state ment of the ferry master at the Christopher street ferry, a man, whose description seem ed that of the Collector, was seeu to alight from a car and go on board the ferryboat Paterson, which left the pier a few minutes later. When the vessel had reached the middle of the stream the unknown individ ual placed his hat on the deck and jumped •oyer board. The alarm was at once given and the engine reversed; but all search for the remains of the deceased proved unavail ing. • The liat remaining on deck was identified 'by friends ami relatives as having belonged to the Collector, and the statement ot two children, who had seen the man jump into the water, and that of a deck hand, which corroborated the statement of the ferry mas ter, established the sad truth that the unfor tunate man who had committed suicide was no other than Mr. Kiug. The deceased was sixty years of age. The same paper of the 16th, states, up to the evening of Wednesday the body of Col lector King had not been recovered. There is no doubt entertained as to its being on the bottom of the North river, as oil the morning of Mr. King’s disappearance, and a short time betore he was seeu to jump from the Hoboken ferry boat, a man corres ponding with bis description pur chased a twenty-five pound bag of shot in a store in West street, and car ried it away suspended to a string arouud • his neck aud concealed under his coat.— Dredging for the remains has been cotumeoc ‘erl, and it is expected that they will soon be oourJ. No appointment has yet been made •to tiu the vacancy caused by Mr. Kiug’s ‘death; hut Assistant Collector Clinch is at [present performing the duties of Collector.” KcaopßAß Steamships at the New York ‘Qi'ai.-anune*—' The steamship Persia, from amd Bavaria from Hambuig which at rived is New York harbor CD the ISth, were both detained at Quarantine. lUtr< i WHB uo sickness on board of either vessel; hut, as many of the passengers had Passed through Paris aud other infected pieces, it was deemed proper to have their “ 'ggage fumigated on arrival here.

J., adding another to the fearful list of railway murders of the present year. The express train from New York to Washington which left Jersey City at 8 o'clock a. m., when just leaving New ark ran off the track at a switch used to turn off locomotives and cars into an enclosure.— Tiio switch bad been so used that morning, and the switchman had neglected to replace it- The accident is thus described: At 8 3-4 o'clock the Washington train swept out of Newatk at a momently increas ing speed. The engineer was probably un apprised of the peril till he perceived the lo motive which he contiolled swerve to the left along the fatal cuive which led into the vacant inclosure. The action of the engine was instantly reversed, and all the brakes that could be reached clapped on at the in stant. But, as the length of the track to be traversed was hardly more than 250 feet, but little mitigation could he made in speed be fore the extremity was reached. The train dashed into the inclosure at a high speed. Arriving at the end of Ihe track, the locomotive burst through the strong oak fence with a tremendous crash, and then came to a stop, the wheels being imbedded iu the stiff clay up to their hubs. None of the cars were thrown from the track, but of course their ends collided with each other with fearful force. In the rear cars the acci dent was not attended by any very disastrous results. The shock was nevertheless terrific. Passengers were hurled trorn their seals, stoves were prostrated, lauterns smashed and windows broken, and for a while great con fusion prevailed. With the exception of a few scratches, all of the passengers in the rear cars escaped. With the smoking car and the one imme diately behind it, however, the effects of the shock were much greater and far more disas trous. The platforms of both were com pletely demolished, and the end of one car shut into the other afier the manner of a pocket-telescope. All of the passengers were shaken from their seals and against each other,few of them escaping without some bruises or abrasions; but the worst effects were experienced iu the smoking car, which was crowded with passengers. Mr. Gordon of Willard's Hotel, Washing ton, was the only passenger killed outright. He was near the dour iu ihe smoking-carat the time and was frightfully mangled, both legs being nearly severed from the body. He was otherwise badly crushed, and must have died immediately. A little boy by the name of Brett was also terribly crushed, most of his wounds being on the head. At 4 o'clock yesterday after noon he was lying at a hotel near the Centre street depot, receiving every attention, but his death was hourly expected. He was a resident of New Brunswick, and was on his way home when the accident occurred. About a dozen other pel sons were more or less seriously iujured. Ttie railway officials have laid the entire responsibility of the ac cident on the shoulders of the careless switchman. Foreign Newt. The steamship Persia, with European dates of the sth inst., arrived at New York on the 15th; The Pall Mail Gazette suggests that far ther Ministerial arrangements are deferred in the case of members of the House of Com mons. in consequence of there being no speaker to issue writs, while the interregnum would be prejudicial to the sitting member, should a vacancy give rise to a contest. Mr. Gladstone had been on a visit to Scot land. The Freeman’s Journal states that the special commission for the trial of the pris oners in custody on the charge of being con cerned in the Fenian conspiracy, had been issued. It is directed to the twelve judges, and especially Mr. Justice Fitzgerald and Mr. Justice Keogh. Power is reserved iu the Commission to the judges, to adjourn to Cork if Deccssary, hut it was stated that the cases will all be tried in Dublin. It bad been reported that a large Bremen ship, with three hundred and seventy pas sengers, for New York, had been lost in the British Channel; but the statement was be lieved to be without foundation. The French war steamer Dix Decembre had sunk the Spanish steamer Murillo, off the South Foreland, by coming into collision with her. The crew and passengers of the Murillo were landed at Dover. The Danish Ministry have resigned. The preliminaries ot a treaty of commerce between England and Austria have been concluded. Tom Sayers, who fought Heenan, is dying of consumption. Harry Broome, another well known prize fighter, is dead. The Danish government had passed the Constantinople Sanitary Commission. METHODIST ANNUAL CONFERENCE. We gave yesterday a brief account of the first day's proceedings of this body now in session in Macon. The Macon papers of the 17th containing the second day’s report have not reached us. From the Telegraph of the 18th we make the following synopsis of the third day’s proceedings. Rev. J. E. Evans presented to the Confer ence a report on the subject of the Southern Christian Advocate, which was adopted. The report recommends the sale of that pa per to J. W. Burke & Cos., of this city. By the terms of the sale, J. W. Burke & Cos. agree to give to the Conferences of Flori da, Georgia and South Carolina, one-third of the profits of the paper after the subset ip tions has reached 8,000. A communication was received from the Trinity Church (colored), Augusta, asking that the titles to their church property be made over to said church. The communi cation also asks that the church be relieved from the charge of the Georgia Annual Con ference. The report was referred to a special com mittee on the colorod population. Rev. A M. Thigpen stated to the Confer ence, that, without any instruction cn the subject, be would represent that the colored church of Atlanta had withdrawn from the Conference, and that their church property stood on the same footing as that in Augus ta aud Savunoab, and if the wishes of the colored churches of those two cities should be respected, the colored church in Atlanta was entitled to the same consideration. Several member* were elected to eiders orders. Several local preachers were elected to Deacons orders. RevTj. W. Glenn resigned his position on the board of trustee* of viuory College. Ill* realguallou was accepted by the Conlorence, and llev. U J. Pearce appointed iu bis place. Tue Miaauo Stumer D. H.

Negro Brigandage on the Riv- ■ er Plantations. A PARTY UP WHITE MEN KOBBED ANDTIIIER LIVES THREATENED. Popular Delation* of I'reeduien a* Vo Ownership of Lands. PROMPT ACTION OF THE FREED MEN'S BUREAU. On Friday last Mr. Jno. G. Holtzclaw, of Green county, arrived in the city on his way to recover the remains of his sod, who was killed in an engagement with the Feder al troops on Izard’s plantation during the seige of Savannah in Dec. last, and buried on Pringle Smith's plantation, on the Carolina side,a few miles above the city. Accompanied by Mr. J. J. Logan, and a negro man named Harry Brown, with a small wagon contain ing a metalic burial case, Mr. Holtzclaw left the city on Saturday afternoon on his melan choly errand, crossing the river at Screven’s Ferry. On Sunday as they approached tl.e vicinity of some negro cabins they were overtaken by a party of some half dozen armed negroes, who, with guns presented, brought them to' a halt, and with «hreats or dered them to turn back. Mr. Holtzclaw stated the object of his visit, aud begged that he might be permitted to proceed to the ad joining plantation, only a short distance off, and take the remains of his son. but his en treaties were only answered with threats and abuse of the most violent aud insulting char acter. While they stood round him and his party, with their guns presented, their number hav ing now increased to some fourteen or fifteen, he asked it there was one among them who could rend. One of their number being pointed out to him, he presented his parole oath in testimony of the fact that he was a loyal citizeD. The negro took the paper and bolding it up side down, contemplated it for a moment and then asked : “ Have you got a order from the Provost MArshal to get that body ? ” “No.” “Then you are a d—d liar. You said you had a order!” “ I did not say I had an order. I gave you that paper that you might know that I had taken the oath.” “You are a G—d d—d liar. You said it was a order,” rejoined the negro, presenting bis gun at the breast of Mr. H. After some parley among the negroes Mr. H. and party were marched hack by them some distance—off of “their premises,” as they termed them—when their arms and money was demanded. The negroes de mand the pay which Henry Brown was to receive for conveying the body to the Ferry, S2O, which was paid over by Mr. Holtzclaw. They also took from Mr. H. his revolver and fifty doth rs in money, and from Mr. Logan five dollars and fifty cent's, all the money he had on his person. The number of negroes had now greatly increased and the demonstrations of hostility were much more violent. Many of them were for shooting the white men and hang ing poor Harry, who had accompanied them. They went so far as to tie the latter and had the rope about his neck, when better coun sels prevailed and he was released. A coun cil was then held to determine the fate of the whites. While the decision was still in doubt, and many were clamorous for shoot ing them on the spot, one who seemed to be a sort of head man among them, exclaimed : “ Don’t you do it—don’t you do it. If you do you will be sorry for it 1” His warning voice no doubt saved the lives ot the little party, who after being robbed of their money and held iu extreme peril for more than an hour, during which time they were subjected to unprovoked and irritating indignity and abuse, were permit ted to depart. Mr. Holtzclaw informs us that the negroes told him that they did not intend vo let any white men come on “ their premises.” They said they understood that the former owners of the river plantations intended to reclaim them, but they need never attempt it, as they would never give them up. They in tended to hold them in defiance even of the military authorities. They made many ex travagant snd ignorant boasts, which we need not repeat, but which go to show the insubordinate spirit which prevails amoug a class of our colored population, which, from their isolated position and inferior opportu nities of information, are in comparative ignorance of their true positiou, and the line of conduct which should govern them in their new relations with their late mas - ters. On his return to the city, Mr. Holtzclaw called upon Col. Sickles, of the Freedmao's Bureau, to whom he gave a full report of the treatment he bad received, aud who prompt ly offered every assistance in his power to enable him not only to tecover the remains ot his sod, but to obtain redress for the cruel outrages to which he ha 1 been subjected.— Colouel Sickles will, we understand, take prompt measures to enlighten the freedmen of the river plantations in regard to their du ties as well as their rights under the new order of things, and will spare uo pains to convince them that emancipation does not elevate them above the restraints of law, nor absolve them from the common obligation to conform to the maxims and usages of the civilization of the age.
