The following is told of a strange phenomenon
lately taking place in the Grecian Archipelago:
The story, folly Touched for au true by United
States and other officials who were eye witnesses
to the startling phenomenon, is stranger than
any fiction conceivable, and the phenomenon
itself is one of the most remarkable evor
known. The island has risen from under
the dea, not suddenly, but gradually, and
the water for miles around was boiling
and steaming at a tremendous rate. While thia
island was thus gradually growing, that of Son
torlin, near by, appears to have been disappear?
ing. A gentleman who landed on the new island J
found it to be of coal or lava, and still so hot that :
eggs which he discovered thereon were cooked
hard. Among other curious accompanying phe?
nomena is the appearance on the surfaco of the
ocean, as good as new, of a vessel which was sunk j
ten years ago. The island is several miles in cir?
cumference, and, being of volcanic origin, it is
supposed will disappear as soon as the force of
the irruption is expended.
MB LOBD.-Recently, our readers are aware,
$31,500,000 worth of bonds was stolen from thc of-1
floe of R. L. LOBD, New York, for the recovery ol'
which a reward of $100,000 is offered. LOB?, as
will be seen by the following from a Now York let?
ter in the Philadelphia Press, is a queer old
Mr. Lord, tho millionaire in question, ia a very
Old gentleman, with somo of the eccentricities of
age. He has frequently gone home, leaving his
Bafo opon with such valnablo documents as those
now lost within tho reach of the dishonest. On
one occasion the janitor found the safo in this
way, locked it and restored the koy to its owner
the following morning. On another he found the
same key in the wash haDd-baBio, and speaks or
the remarkable trustfulness of the old gentleman
in matters generally. If snch forgetfulness in the
matter of the kev of the safo were of frequent oc?
currence, it is not difficult to understand that the
opportunity may havo been watched and taken
advantage' of. Doubtless the matter will be so
cleared up in a day or two that something more
definite may be written upon the subject. As it
ie, it is sufficiently interesting; tho amount of the
*-38, the immonne reward offered, and the alleged
comparative indifference with which the owner
bears the loss, of whom it is said that ho re?
marked ho would prefer losini? thc moDey rather
than have a n^wspupor fuss m ide -ibout it.

LKTTEK FROM KEW ORLEANS.
[FBOM orra OWN COBRESPONDENT. ]
NEW OBLBANS, March 20.-I blush as I under?
take the unpleasant task of chronicling the deep?
ly humiliating circumstances attending the in?
stallation of the Mayor of this city yesterday. I
blush for my country, for the land of freodom
where freedom is BO throttled from day to day,
that it is a wonder it has not long ere this been
choked into slavery. I blu 3h for the fact that our
Government, notwithstanding the repeated as?
surances and more tangible evidences we have
given of our loyalty, cannot even trust us with the
management and control of our municipal affairs.
I blush to think that the greatest right of an
American citizen, the elective franchise, which is
even clamored for by the freedmen, is not allow?
ed to freemen; for what a mockery it is to allow
us to elect Mr. A., E., or G., knowing that in real?
ity we have no election in the matter, unless tho I
successful candidate shall be allowed to take his |
seat by a higher authority than the ballet-box.
Yesterday Mr. MONBOE was installed into office
as Mayor of New Orleans, having been duly elect?
ed in aeoordance to law and the rights of Ameri?
can citizens ; to-day Mr. J. A. ROZLEE is Mayor |
pro tempore, according to military decree. Mr.
MONBOE is not conscious of having done aught
that can exempt him from the benefits of the Am?
nesty Proclamation, unless it bo that he is guilty
of being the owner of above twenty thousand dol?
lars worth of roal estate.
I am afraid that I will blush to too groat au ex-1
tent were I refer to the matter in detail, yet to
show how much more sensitively delicate tho mili?
tary nerve of loyalty is than even President JOHN- j
SON, I append two important documents :
WAS DEFABTMENT, March, 17, 1866.
2b John T. Monroe :
Your telegram of to-day just received. In an- j
ewer thereto, I send you a copy of the telegram
sent by me to Mayor Kennedy, in regard to the
; Mayoralty of New Orleans :

I Eon. Hugh Kennedy, Mayor of New Orleans, La.:
I have no instructions to give in regard to sur- I
I rendering the Mayoralty of New Orleans co tho |
person who has been elected to fill that position.
We have no information showing the election
waa not regular, or that the inuividual who has j
been elected cannot qualify,
i In the absence of such information the pre?
sumption is, that the election has been according j
to law, and that the person elected can take the |
oath of allegiance and loyalty if required.
President of the United States.
So sayB the President of the United States; but
Major General CANBX is more particular, and gets
up the following order:
HEADQTJABTEBB DEPARTMENT OF LOUISIANA,
NEW OB LEANS, LA., March 19th, 18 GC.
SPECIAL OED EES, NO. 63.
2. It appearing that John T. Monroe and James
0. Nixon, who received, respectively, at the late j
municipal election, a majority of the votes for the j
offices of Mayor and Alderman, may come within
the classes of exceptions mentioned in the Presi?
dent's Proclamation of Amnesty, neither having
received a special pardon, they are suspended
from the exercise of any of the functions of those
offices until their cases can be investigated and
the pleasure of the President be made known; but
they will be allowed to take the oath of office, and
the Mayor eleot will be allowed to administer tho |
uanoi oath to the p ors ona elected.
The remaining persona will, npon complying
with the Constitution and laws of the State, be
inducted into office, and thc municipal govern?
ment of the city as thus constituted, and with the
two exceptions above mentioned, is declared to bo
organized and in full forco and vigor.

By order of Maj. Gen. E. B. S. GAVBT.
Assistant Adjutant General.
In a subsequent order General CANS; appoints
J. ADISON ROZ I EB Mayor pro tempore, and so the
case stands at present, whilst the Goddess of Liber?
ty is squealing like a young pig at the throttling
she ia undergoing, and eagles on the American
currency are Sapping their wings in pain; hut the
time shall come when the iron will of one firm
patriot shall be proof against these onslaughts
which terrify the Goddess and the noble bird;
when President JOHNSON himself shall declare by
proclamation that the war ia ended, and that the
citizens of the United States shall all be allowed
a free exercise of the rights guaranteed them by
the Constitution. We must have patience, bido
our time, and remember that
"Come what, coma may,
Time and the hour runs through the roughest day."
On last Sunday night the Young Men's Calico
Ball came of with great eclat at Odd Fellows' Hall.
The ball was given for the benefit of the widow of
a Confederate soldier-every lady present was
pressed in calico, which, instead of detracting
from their beauty, enhanced it the more; and in
all it was a pretty sight to behold, thus attired,
some of the loveliest bellos of the Crescent City.
Tho ball was a completo succoss.
As a gentle hint to Charleston to go and do I
likewise, I note the fact that there is to be a
Spring meeting on the Fair Grounds Baoe Course, [
beginning on the fifth of next month. The Race
Course at Charleston is perhaps second to nono in
the United States. Whore are tho members of |
the old Jockey Club ?
Thirty-two hundred and fifty bales of cotton |

Twenty-three hogsheads of Sugar were Bold

A FACT in relation to National Bank? which is
not generally understood, eays thc Internal Reve?
nue Record, requires an explanation. Reports are
every now and then being published of the char?
ter of certain new National Banks by the Comp?
troller of tho Currency; while tho fact is, that no
Natioual Banka havo been authorizod for several
mouths, but a number that were granted some
six or eight months ago have been delayed by va?
rious causes from commencing bnsineBS until tho
present time. Quito a number <?f State Banka,
which applied for conversion and filed their papers
prior to the 1st of July, 18G5, have not yet received
their final certificate of authority, for the reason
that their outstanding Stato circulation is in ex?
cess of tho amount allowed by tho law for Na?
tional Banks. The Comptroller only issues the
certificate for them to commence business when
their old circulation is roducod to ninoty percent,
of their capita..
TRIAL. BEFORE MILITARY COMMISSION.
FORTY-SIXTH DAY. '
OnASEL, March 28, 1866.
The CommiBsion met at 10.30 A. M., and con*
tinned the trial of JAMES CRAWFORD RE?S, his
eon, ROBERT KEYS, and ELISHA BYBEM.
W. 8. Williame, a witness for the defence, de?
posed as follows : I am 54 years of age, and live
near Salubrity, Pickens District; I made the ac?
quaintance of Largent, a Marylander, in July last,
at Col. Hamilton's, in Anderson District; he was
said to have been a soldier in the Confederate
army; he is 21 or 22 years of age, a little over five
feet high, of a fair complexion, with rod features
and hair; about the let November I saw him rid?
ing a small chesnut sorrel mare in the road near
Col. Hamilton's; this was the first time I saw tho
marc; I last saw her about the lat of January in
the possession of the Provost Marshal at Wai
halla; I know Martin, but never saw him in Lar
gent's company; I have seen Hooper in Largent's
company; I think Hooper was a stranger in An?
derson District; Largent's business was trading
in horses; he said he wae on hie way to another
State; I gave him, in the latter part of October, a
letter to be carried to my uncle, Thomas R. Wil?
liame, living in Jacksonville, Alabama; I saw
Hooper and Martin together, after I had seen the
sorrel mare, at Slaobourn, in Anderson District,
eighteen miles in a northwesterly direction from
Anderson 0. H.; Hamilton's is about the same dis?
tance and in the same direction from Anderson
0. H.; the sorrel mare WM taken from Largent's
SOBsession about the 1st January, at my brother's,
ve miles from my house, whero Largent was then
staying; Capt. Bray, Provost Marshal at Walhalla,
commanded the party 'bat took the mare; the
same party arreated me at 12 o'clock that night,
before they took the mare; Largent waa not ar?
rested that night.
Being cross-examined by the Judge Advocate,
the witness deposed as follows : Largent bought, i
among others, United States horses; it was ti i
der stood that the Government was about to cia: m
hordes branded U. S.; Largent bought horses for
the purpose of removing them from the mate; ho
asked an introduction to my uncle, saying he
would probably have horses to sell; he did not say
United States horses; I saw him with two or three
horses branded U- S.-a roan, a bay and a gray;
be had a brown mare marked U. S. or C. S.; bia Bor?
rel mare has Btaid at my place; Largent was re?
garded in the community as a good citizen; since
my arrival in this city I have lived with Mr. Jeffers;
I don't know whether he ie the business agent or
intimate friend of Crawford Keys; I was in attend?
ance thia morning on the Commission at the re?
quest of Colonel Burt, after I was discharged by
the Judge Advocate from attendance for the day
as a witness; the letter shown me is in my hand?
writing, and is the letter referred to by me in my
direct examination as having been given by me to
The Judge Advocate read the letter, which ie as

October 24, 18S5. j
DEAR UNCLE: I have an opportunity, perhaps, of send?
ing you a short letter ono time more. We are all well
heare, and doing the best we can. The crops in this
section of country are only tollerable good.
Allow me to introduce to yonr acquaintance my
friend, Mr. W. Larpent, who is a Marylander, a reffogeo
who has been battling for our cause for the last four
years, and now he cannot go home, as there is a large
majority of Union men tn bis country. He is now
going farther Sooth, looking ont for business.- He has,/,
done about all ho can doe heare, and he has done good !
service. He may have some horace for sale that he. i
traded for here, horses thai were subject, I suppose, to- *.
the Yankee authorities. He has token tho wrisk of buy?
ing them, and run the chances of making what he can
li he calls on yin, please give him what ace I s taner you
can ; he can tell you aU about thia country better than I 1
can write it. Write to me li you over get an opportu?
nity to send mo a letter. Herbert arrived homo all
wright, and waa well pleased with relations in Alabama.
Your affectionate nephew,
W. 8. WILLIAMS.
To THOS. R. WILLIAMS, of Jacksonville, Calhoun Coun?
The horses reforrod to in the above letter are
those mentioned in my testimony; at tho time the
letter was written I did not know Largent had ;
the sorrel mare; be did not go to Alabama, as he
sonld not eollect monoy due to him; Largent did ;
not conceal himself between the 8th October,
1865, and my arrest, but fwent back and forth in .
?lie ordinary manner during that time; ho did not
attempt to conceal the fact of haviog the eorrol
mare; I nevor heard him Bpeak of the mordor at
Brown's Ferry; Largent is a friend of mine.
Being re-exam i ned, the witness stated that CoL
Hamilton bas a grandson named Walker Russel,
20 or 21 years of age, living with him; that ho
(witness) keeps a public house, and has been a
merchant for several years.
The accused introduced the record in the case
af F. G. S to wars, to show that, on tho first day of
that trial, Warren Howell, a witness for the prose?
cution, deposed that he went to the Ferry two
bouts after thc murder; that tho party made ita
appearance not more than half an nour after the
man Jones left; also, to show that W. P. Brown, a
witness for the prosecution, did not state, in bia
evidence, on the Uh and 16th days of the trial,
that he recognized the voice of Crawford Keys on
the night of the murder, that the moon was shin?
ing, nor that he recognized the features of any
of the party.
The Judge Advocate showed, from the record,
that Brown was not asked, on the days referred
to, whether he recognized the voice of Keys,
whether the moon was shining, nor whether he
recognized the feature a of any of the party.
The accused showed rrom the record in the case
of Stowers that Brown had said that "just hie
general appearance" induced him to believe he
.aw Crawford Keys the night of the murder;
that Brown in reply to a queetion said, "I can't
think I am mistaken in the man (Crawford Keys);
I took it to be him; and that Brown did not men?
tion the voice of Keys as one of the means of
The accused, by their counsel, read from Mil?
ler's Almanac the statement that on the morning
of the 9th October, 1865, the sun rose at 5h. lm.
o'clock A. M., and the Judge Advocate read tho
statement, in the the same Almanao, that tho
moon rose on the 8th of October, 1865, at 8.55 P.
M., and had become full on the ith October 5.15
P. M., and went into ita last quarter on the 11th
October, 18C5, at 10.5 P. M.

THE FIBST COLORED JURY TN GEORGIA_A novel
proceeding wae before Judge DAVIS (Freedmen's
Court) yesterday afternoon. To wit :
It was an action of debt. Rev. Peter Johnson
vs. Rev. Richard Coltor. Tho plaintiff demanded
twenty-seven dollars for board. The defendant
filed an off-set of ninety dollars for labor. In their
eworu statements thoy differed widely-so much
so as to confuso tho Judge, who generally ia not
at a losi to decide. They both being preachers
nud rnombera of the same church, and entertain?
ing, ss he said he did, an exalted opinion of per?
sons occupying their position; and feariug li?
would be compelled to doubt one, if not both ol
thom, if he hoard thc case, ho summoned three
colored men of good standing iu tho church
Jacob Uwe, Frank Beall und Toby Lamar-who,
after hearing the case, gave their opinion that the
dofendant was indebted to tho plaiutiffin the sum
of fix dollars.

will bo 150,000 poor white men renting land this
yearwho never did before, and at least as many
negroes. These generally contract for one-third
of the crop, and furnish their own teams; or one
fourth, and uso the teams and implements of their
former m asters.
The crop of 1860 was 5,344.166 bales of ginned
cotton. In attempting an estimate of the crop of.
186?, I shall set it down as two thirds of that of
in all tho 8tates except Texas, Alabama and
lisaippi. In Texas and Alabama I be ie vo tba

crowded thousands of negroes, many of

by our armies. In Texas there are 100,006
B.more than in 1860, and in Alabama proba
60,000. Mississippi remained comparatively
_ also, but lost many negroes. Her crop
not exceed throe-fourths. In Virginia it will

Another Steamboat Disaster.
From the Savannah Republican of the 26th we
learn of tho sinking of the steamer Darlington, at
Sister's Bluff, with 420 bales of cotton. The Re?
The steamer Darlington left Hawkinsville on
Saturday morning, the 17th instant, for Savannah,
under command of Captain Jacob Brock, with ?
freight consisting of 420 bales of upland cotton,
consignod as follows: F. W. Sims & Co., 183 bales;
Geo. C. Freeman, 141 bales; Duncan & Johnson, 8
bales; J. W. Lathrop <fc Co., 86 bales; A. H. Hart
ridge, 15 bales; and 4 baleB of wool to F. M. n'ly
rell. While coming down the Altamaha River,
and when about fifty miles above Doctortown, she
struck a snag, and sunk (after drifting four miles)
in eight feet of water, at Sister's Bluff. Her valu?
able cargo will all be saved, but in a damaged con?
dition, and the vessel will be raised, arrangements
having already been made to that end by her en?
terprising agent here, Mr. F. M. Myrell, who dis
patchod the steamer Augusta on Saturday morn?
ing last to Sister's Bluff, for tte purpose of re?
ceiving her cotton.
The Darlington was built at Charleston about
five years ago; was running between that city and
Cheraw, on the Pedee Biver; afterwards on the
route between Jacksonville and Enterprise, on thc
St. John's Biver.
In 1862 she waa seized by the Federal authori?
ties, and used by them as a transport during the
war, but was subsequently restored to her origi?
nal owners, who placed hor in thorough repair,
and were running her between this city and Ma?
con via Hawkinsville, as a freight boat, at the
time of the disaster.
She was owned by Mr. Jacob Brock, of Enter?
prise, Florida, and was valued at $25,000. 8he
was not insured, but her cargo, to the extent of
$50,000, was recovered.
After al.e has been raised eho will be at once
placed on the same route.
SPOKEN LIKE A HEBO.-A literary gentleman,
who is engaged in writing a book on some events
in the war, in which MOSBY was concerned, has re?
cently had some correspondence with that noted
personage, and a short timo ago inquired of him
if it would bo safo for "a Black Republican-ono
dyed in tho wool"-so he described himsolf-to
make nt tho present time a horseback journey
through Virginia. In reply, that famous rough
rider writes the gentleman as follows:
If you have any desiro to visit the historic
scenes of Virginia, I hope you will not be deterred
by any apprehension for your personal safoty.
You will be just as safe from molestation hero as
in tho streets of Boston. Fhnuld you determino
to visit Northern Virginia, I would be glad to see
you at my home; and I can at least promiso that
you will not find mc that monstrum hoirendum of
the Northern imagination. By-tho-by, ono of tho
regiments most frequently encountered was from
Boston-the 2d Masrachnsctts. Col Lowell I
once met a detachment of it under command of
Major Forbes, of Boston; and, although our en?
counter rosulted iu hia overthrow, ho bore him?
self with conspicuous gallantry, and I saw him
wound ono of my best men with hia sabro. I also
had an interview with a Capt. Barton, of Massa?
chusetts, who nerved on Gen. Eustace s staff, aud
interested mysolf to procure his exchange. * *

Wrongs of irciand_SpMoh of tne O'Don
The following are extracts from the recent
speech ot the O'DONOOHUE, one of the Irish mem?
bers in the English Honse of Commons, on the
wrongs of Ireland. He said:
At this time there was eiienco in the homes of
the peasantry, as if they were listening for the
first sounds of a mighty tempest, foretold by
strange signs and threatening clouds. They make
no manifestations of political feeling, but to learn
what they felt, we must look across the Atlantic
at the attitude of their brethren-from whom they
might be said to have only just parted, and from
whom their hearts were still lonely-marshaling
in hundreds of thousands, proclaiming that the
day of vengeance was at hand, and calling out to
their fathers and brothers in the old home to
keep aloof from English party squabbles, and
never more appeal for justice to that Parliament
which had so often spurned their petitions.
Now matter how we regard the thousands of
banded Irishmen now parading their numbers as
a menace to England in the Stales of the Western
Republic, by the vast majority of the agricultural
population of Ireland, by the millions of the Iris h
people, these banded Irishmen were loved and
I trusted, and every indication of their growing
[ strength was hailed with delight. What would
I happen now if a force came, no matter whence,
having the avowed intention to overrun English
j authority and abolish the hated land law? Would
[ the landlords be able to appeal to their tenantry
in defence of insecurity of tenure and high rents
in defence of a system which allowed one man to
sweep away the inhabitants of a whole county (aa
was recently done in Galway hy Mr. John Adair),
and placed the Queen's troops at his disposal to
assist him in exterminating the Queen's subjects
-in defence of a system wbich recognized no
more right in the tiller of the soil, independently
of the will of his landlord, than it did the beast
wbich draws the plough ?
No doubt they were indisposed to credit his
words; they might think he exaggerated for a
sinister purpose, either to loner their reputation
before the world or to encourage their enemies by
Eving proof of internal weakness or of anti-Eng
ih sentiment. No, he had no anti-English sen?
timent [hear, hear]; the honorable member for
.Sheffield might laugh, bot he did not mind that.
He repeated that no had no anti-English senti?
ment; he deemed it scarcely possible that a man
who hod mach intercourse with Englishmen
should be anti-English. [Hear, hear.] If Her
Majesty's government declared it was their inten?
tion to do all that could be done to remove these
causes, and gave proof of .honesty of purpose to?
wards Ireland, that spirit of die affection would
etjbside; that same spirit which now war. threat?
ening to break out m an insurrectionary move?
ment, and wbich possessed, beyond all Question,
tho popular sympathy, and which made the peo?
ple of Ireland formidable, no matter bow they
wert laughed at or ridiculed. [Hear, hear.]
He implored the representa '?ives of England in
that House, for the sake of their own country, for
the sake of humanity, for the sake of Ireland,
which had many claims on the gratitude of En?
gland, before it waa too late, before blood was
shed, before passion had taken the place of rea?
son, to do something wbich would give a new
direction to the thoughts of the Irish people, by
giving them confidence that they might expect
judgment from the United Parliament. [Cheers.]
He only hoped the amendment be now begged to
propose would meet the approval of the House
and country, and he pledged himself to press it to
a divieion. The honorable gentleman then moved
to substitute in the address, for the words in refe
. renee to the part of Her Majesty*? speech relative
to Ireland, the following words :
"Humbly to express our deep regret to Her
Majesty that wide-epread disaffection -??Mts in
Ireland, and humbly to ropresent to HerjKjesty
that the wide-epread disaffection is tho result of
grave causes, which it is the duty of Her Majes?
ty's ministers to examine into and remove."
Gov. Fletcher, of Missouri, has sent in to the
Legislature a message, in which he represents
that the peace and quiet oi the State are endan?
