'Aet or the Conspirators.
Aotthe middle of last month, General Ba
*ker received information of a plot at Lynchbnrg,
Virginia, to rob the Post Quarterrraster's safe of
* a large amount of money it was known to con
tain. The case worked up, has i-esulted in the
- arrest and incarceration in the Old Ca 1l Pris
.on last night, of Brevet-Brigadeir- ~eral J.
. * C. Briscoe, of the One Hundred and Ninth Penn-.
ed(vania Tolun-tee comrmanding. post at Lybch
* berg, and A. W. eakey, of Worcester,- Afassa
* ~chusetts, foirmerly a sutler at that. post. .Gene
ral Briscoe is an Irishman by birth, and has ten
a. commaund of the post at Lynchburg sinci~ Lee.
- kiirrender. Captain W. A. Alberger, son of Coin
missioner Alberger, of New York, has been Quar
termaster at Lynchburg, anil had in his charge
on the 21st September,ode hundred and twenty
thousand dollars in greenbacks, besides a. large
amount of captured gold coin and bullion, which
had been placedi in his 4harge foi safe keeping.
' Briscoe ,appreaghed Alberger through Lackey,
and pwoposed to'nim as the war was abouat to
close and none of them had ma~de money out of
it, they shoM1d-make a gre.nd haul in concert and
pocket fifty thousand dollars a piece in a- flash.
Alberger kept the fundls in a safe, which for-.
anelybelooged to x rebel offieer, and' this fact
-.-was to give color to~ the charge which -was utYle
-made that the ex-rebtl, having a du~pieste key
tthe-saif ha robbed it.- Brisco was to arrest
the Quartermaster, his clerks and half the. peo
ple of Lynclijurg to avert suspielen. The Ge~n
- eral took an imnpression of the safe key in wax,
and sent Lae:key to Philadelphia t. get the keys
a. made.- Alberger, ostensibly in. thie plot, irpform
ad the Secretary of War, and two or thi'ee of
Generat'Baker's officers were serit down to Lynch
* .- burg to arrest the guilty parties. Thee offiieers
. Maw through holes in~ the ceiling of. the office,
General Briscoe came in ie the Quartermiaster
.' anid his etrks were gone to din ncr; saw himn
- unloek the safe with the,false'ke., take.out three
- , .packages of greenbacks of forty thousand dollars
. eatch, and load himself dewn w!t coin and'~bul
. 4ion to the amount of mdear fifteen fhbonsand dol-.
!ars, having previously ignited saturated- papee
.mid cli with a view to burning the building.
They followed himt across the. hall of his own
"i afice; a-nd burst in upon him counting and. ar.
;.rging the money behind his bolted door. The.
' -wae noulds and.false keys were foundspc'n him,

We have a few copies of as 's paper left,

The Island Landi.
We are preased. to announce, says the Charles
ton Courier, through the kindness of a friend,
that the dfforts of Mr. Julien Mitchell, of this.
city, who has been for some time laboriously'and
perskWntly urging .upon th- Government the
propriety, of restoring the '.island lands" to their
originAl owners, - haye at last met with cor'plete
success,. and that an order. will'short;y be issued,
I making full restitutioa in the premises. It is ex
pected. that Gen. Howard will visit thistepart
ment to give personal direction to its execution.
We regret to learn, from the Yorkville Enqui
rer, that Col. Jas. HI. Witherspoon recently died
aOLancaster, of cancer 6f the lip. Col V. was
highly eateemed wherever known. He was a
member Qf ttitlate Confederate Congress.
The Columbia Phcenix 'also chronicles the
death of Dr. John H. Boatwright,. one of the
most honored citizens of that city'. At the time
of his d'eath he was Grand Master -of- Free Ma
sons in South Carolina.
It will be rememiiered that in the *ient death
of Mr. R. B. Boylston, the Grand Lodge of South
Carolina lost its Deputy Grand Master.- It now
loses, in the Death of -Tr. Boatw~right, its Grand
1Maeter. - Sad misfortune.

IA correspondent, writing from Norfollra says:
Front'a gentleman caleirlated to know, I learn
th.at ex-President Davis fs greatly p1eeased with
'r- new quarters at Fortress Monroe. - The
Ibuildinoe (Oarfofl Hall) in which he -is confined,
is situa "within the fort?, and is divided off into
mess, rooms, a library, officers' equarters, and a
place' for holding courts martial. Pi-om Mr.
Davis' room a gallery extends to the ramparts
so that.when he walks abroad he need not en
couinter t}e gaze of spectators.. It is an improve-.
meat npan ,his late casemate quarters ; still it
iust be a tedio-us confmement to the dltee proud
spirit pf the oc.cupast.
It is the opinion of well informed, gentlemen
that as soon as .miatgrs -are more ~advariced,
Presid'ent Johnston will throw aside -the pt-son
bars of I-r Davis and that he will be free to go
where he listet..
