Departure of Missionaries. --A scene of unusual interest took place on Commercial wharf this morning, on the occasion of the departure of two bands of Missionaries, on the fine ship Sea King, for Madras and Calcutta. For the Ceylon Mission, under the care of the American Board, there were Nathan Ward, M. D., and wife, Rev. John C. Smith and wife, Rev. J. A. Bates; and for the Methodist Mission in India, under the patronage of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Rev. Mr. Jackson and wife, Rev. Mr. Hauser. A very large congregation of their friends, and others interested in the missions, assembled to see them off. Religious services were held on board, which were conducted by Bishop Baker. After the ship left the wharf the audience on shore joined in singing the missionary hymn.-- Boston Journal,30th.
jumping into the water and wading ashore. The forts of the Peh-tang village, having been previously abandoned by the Chinese, were occupied by the Allies next day. The position of the Chinese on the Pei-ho river is represented to be a very strong one, and, in addition to these fortifications, they have two bodies of troops, one numbering 10,000, and the other from 40,000 to 50,000. It was expected that the attack would certainly be made on the 12th or 13th, as a longer delay might result in a great deal of sickness, from the malaria of the marshes. Mr. Ward, our Minister, was with the Allied fleet, as was our entire naval force on the station. This fact gave great dissatisfaction to the American residents of Shanghai, who could not see the necessity of two American war steamers at the Pei-ho, especially when Shanghai was threatened by a rebel force of 20,000, which was reported to be only four miles off. The whole available force in the city to defend it was only about 1,500 men.
The polls. --We are requested to state that the polls in each Ward will be open to-morrow morning at sunrise.
