He formerly was a practisiug physician

an improvement upon a systemu which has

Orleans. from the New Orleans Tropic of
La nod 2d inst.
No inconsiderable degree o( sensation
bas been caused in this city by this dis
closure of the fact that our custom-house
has been robbed of an immense sulm of
money. The particulars of the case, as
they have come to our knowledge, are as
On the 26th of July last, more than nine
months agn, a package containing one
hundred and thirty thousand dollars in
the United States Treasury -Notes, was
sent, by mail, fron the Custom-house to
the Treasury Departnent at Washington.
The package. it appears, never reached
its deitmation, and during the past week
an agent from the Treasury Department,
chargd with the buisiness or iuvestigation,
has arrived in the city. He has been bu
siiy engaged in probing the afflair to the
bottii, but as yet the result of his labors
has not been made knowvu. Enough has
transpired, however, to render it quite
certain that the moiey did not leave the
city. It seems thast the Treasury note-i
when received here are marked "eanctlled"
across the facc, in order to prevent tcir
further circulation, in case of accident. If
the notes in the missing package were sto
attarked, the marks did not accomplish the
Ip-ariuse intended, for the records of the
cussum-house, shtow, we are iniformed,that
ome of tie identical notes comprising that
packngo, have again been received here
anal forwarded to Washington.
Altogeihar. the business is very myste
rious and duitlicult of solutiao. That a
pretty extensive scheme of rasclity has
beena consumimated, is quite clea:-, butt upan
wthum isuspicion shotuld full is another af
fair. It is pre~umaed that the secret rests
between the custoum-bouse and the post

I ed by sumo person or persons familiar
with the mtode of conducting busin-ess in
both of those establishments. Sonme ligbt
will be shed on the arair, it may be ants

piece of villuiny that has caused so much
excitement in this city, during the last
few days, has been discovered, and that a

was writtene with a pencil, and signed

negro had asked Mr. Spice to exchange.
and which had eacited Air. Spice's suspi

either that the notes were counterfeit, or
that the negro had stalen ihout. These
circumstances led to the arrest, and Dow
ilen was held to bail in the sum of $i500,
fur further cxamination. It is not known
that any of the notes were passed olT, nor
is it thought that tore than seven one
