Appearand of the Troop* , Black and White ? Fo reign Officer* PremU ? Departure* from the Island ? Trade and Health Report. The past has been exciting weak, oar minds being tiled with what we are going to do, having almost fcr getten what has been done. The arrival of the United States sloop-of-war Jaoaes tew?. Ellison, commander, with the broad pennant or Commodore Or abbe, on the 15th in at., set the specula ties of indoles oe to labor ia assignment of a reason for H, behind which mass of conjecture the cloud of war, of wurse, was looming in the distance. Salutes were ex changed on the 16th, and as the national salute was not rcc ponded to on the part of the Spaniards for two or three hourt, busy tongues through the city ascribed the nsnai cause for such casualties, " intentional delay in dissespect." The salute made to the Admiral of the Port after the return of the first was promptly noticed, and a suitable return made. Tue 11 tg lieutenant ani the Drat lieutenant of the Jamestown, calleJ upon the Captain General on the evening of the 16th, to return the call made by the aid-de camps of the Captain Geoe sal ?n toard when General Oouuha voluntserel the in formation that he bad ordered tbe arrest of the officer wbo bad been ch\r<od to aoisrer tbe salute of the Janes'cwn, for the ,:elay he had permitted in execati?n ?f his instrnctioriH Whoever has been arreste I, it m'Mt le some party without xtaoding or responsibility, a< we eannot fled any cemmin.'.er >n durance. The comm md lag officer, Arcos, to wtaom the order vr as sint ia not ia oentineitient, and many presume to say that the excuse ef Concha is evasive oi the fact, and ther<> are those who declare it was a purposed indignity, with the tacit au thority of oar upper dignitary. We cannot well go be. bin 1 the CcBia), especially if an arrest has been raally ?ade. The Jamestown tailed for Key West on the 17th, te wait orders. Commnlor* McOauli'y, on hoar! of the Sau Jac'nto, Commander Stribling, arrived the "JOth. He ca'led on tha Capta n General ou thi 20th ? a visit of eernmony and rctpeei. It Is said that ibis week vill be devotel to business or explanation, if any ars to bo found or fa^ci cated; net tbe matters to be sealed up by reference to the ministry at Madrid ? which will be just as far ahead as Mr. Ifarcy wns before. Yesterday we had a sham representation of all the pride, pomp ^.nJ circumstance of glorious war, without the olfeuMve odor of villanous ?aitpetie; a grand paraOe and review, embracing every thing effective we could muster of black, wiiite and mixed? all told, near seven tbou->and Ave hundred men. Tbe w lilts volunteers. 1 thought, looked re nnrkably well, an** they have certainly improved in their drill very much, while they are as lite to one of better material than can be found in the regular ranks. Aboil', their dispotition for ha'.tle 1 feel doubtful; but better material, with taith and heart in tbe right place, I hive never -een ii any country. The negroes were hid a tay on tbe left, the blackest at the extremity. The line of parage was abent two miles, reaching from the Punta up tHe Paseo Isabel tc thu centre of the Campo de Marte, across it to Qneen ntieet, and the whole length of that street to ?be opening of th? Pa?eo Taeoa. Tie Ciptala General with Irs brilliant stair (in plain clothei), apptar^.i to great advantage As the volunteers of the c.ty of Ha vana passed tho reviewiDB dignitary, they gave a volley ?f viva i for tbe Queen, the throne, and for Concha Ttie crowd of spectatjrs, for tbe whole Ucu of the parage, was to tho lull extent of all space not o 'jupiel by thi treops. We have not had such a multitude in the streets ainee tbe second landing of Concha at Havana. Con modore McCanley was on the Paseo near the Stud of the ? Osp'.aia General, in front of the Tacon Theatre, in the carriage of the Captain General, accompanied by Count Vilianueva, aid-de camp of tbe Captain General, and Chptain Btribling, of the San J:cin'.o. I saw on the greead, also, officers of the British vessels of war Buz zard and Vista, and of tbe Princeton? the gallant liigle ia the lead ? all enjoying the disp'ay which was diUMng the nostrils of tbe war horse and the ohief that sat on him as if bis hrme was in tbe saddle.

It was bean tifol to look at, but one's enjojment wan marred by the .reflection that immense misery Bast follow from the display. II our weather do not change soon, we shall have green peas about the middle of September. The grass ia getting to be tolerably green; but the trees on the Com mon give about as much shade as would be afforded by an equal number of vsnerable lamp-posts of the old school. The Bins investigation* are getting to be a trifle saut. y, and the testimony ef some of the witnesses is very like ?ome of that given in the greatest Stute trial of this age, that of Queen Caroline. The spectators are mach amuse 1 by tbe details, particularly the old gentlemen present. Among the patsengera by the America, which sailed hence for Liverpool on Wednesday, was Mr. Trowbridge, who is perhaps better known by hfs pen name, "Paul Creyton," who proposes to make an extensive Euro pean tour, and to correspond with several papers. lie is a clear writer, and, though yet young, has an estab lithed reputat-cn. 7he "Christ Church difficulties" are in a fair way to make fun for the million and money for lawyers. It seems that the Dmly Bee newspaper? 'he leading or; in of the Know Nothings? has said something about the Rev. Mr. Smithett. rector of that church, so offensive to members of his congregation, that tbey have brought an action for libel against the'proprietors of that journal, laying thtir damages at ten thousand dollars. Last year a Catholic clergyman sued the Bo, chimlftg that he had teen harmed by one of its articles to the amount of five thousand dollars, but the action never came up for trial; aid now it has to contend with a Protestant clergyman.' Il.eee libel suits, especially when clergymen figure in them, are very po:r things, unless it can be cleariy es tablished that the defendants acted from bad motirss. lbe B<< ? is a very respectable journal, and is, I think, quite incapable of wantonly assailing any man. A new law in relation to libels las been reported in our lieose of Representatives. It provides that in every prosecution, ami tn eveiy dvil action for writing or pub lishing a libel, tbe dtfendact may give in evidence in hi* defer ce upvn the trial, the truth of the mat'.er contain ed in the publication charged as libe.l ms, and such evi dence i ebail be deeaeo a sufficient justification.

Nearly six thousand shares were sold. Tae weekly report* of business on this road are wholly un precedented, and give great encouragement to stock holder!. The amount of coal transported is largely la advance of all estissaVes, and when it is considered that freights are about twenty per cent in advance of tho*e of last year, the comparative productiveness of the road can bo easily imagined. The coal tonnage for April this year will not vary much from 215,000 tone against 170,000 tons frr the same month last year. The local and oth?r huiiness of the company this year has largely increased. Erie Railroad advanced one-half per cent on the opening price and closed Arm at 50 per cent.
