The Herald has the following "astounding" paragraph:

Important news reaches us from San Francisco to the effect that the schooner Chapman, when leaving for Mexico on the 15th, was boarded by the government officials, and taken in charge as a privateer. About twenty Secessionists were captured aboard, well armed, and six brass Dahlgren guns, with carriages suitable for use on ships. Correspondence on the persons of the prisoners identified them with the party recently negotiating for the steamer Victoria for a privateer. The prisoners taken on board confessed that the Chapman intended to take in a full compliment of men at some point on the coast, and that it was designed to capture the steamer Oregon on her way to Mazatlan; to put a prize crew on board of her, and then to make an attack conjointly upon the two treasure steamers coming from California.

It seemed to produce a salutary effect on the price of gold, reducing it to 153. The terms of the European offer are that the loan will be taken at the present rate of exchange, which, if accepted by Mr. Chase, would give him sixty three millions in gold. This sum, considering that the balance of trade is in our favor, and that the amount of produce which continues to be shipped is immense, would be simply sufficient to enable Mr. Chase to make a beginning in the resumption of specie payment — the on lyse use be six upon which the finances of the country can be established. No doubt it is a sacrifice to sell the bonds of the Government at that felt; but it must be recollected that the country has now been two years engaged its a war which is still unsuccessful, and that the bribe-fit to be deliver from the sale of these bonds for gold would for out weigh the temporary list. Seen the green backs would be preferred to gold as long more possible and convenient, while equivalent in value.

’ The he soon explored if will be seen by the gold report of the 20th, which shows that gold was again up to 134¼.
