Some of them, however, will not be able to leave for some weeks. Three of the smaller ones, which have been partially clad with iron, have been fin ished at Jersey City. Two of them were turned over to Admiral Paulding for their armament, &c. As it has been stated in yesterday's papers that these vessels were to be part of a great expedition bound for a particular destination, it may not be amiss to say that the little ste.im er* will be divided into several fleets, on their arrival at New Orleans, all to go in different directions, up such rivers and lagoons as are impassable to larger ships.

The Latest Paris '-Horror"?How a Doctor Poisoned his Patients after Securing their Life Insurance. The lateet hoiror in the French capital has heen excited by the revelations in the ail'air or the poisoning, by a doctor, of his patients, after having secured his fees upon a gigantic *cale. alter their deaths, by ihe insurance of their lives to an immense amount. The excitement pioduced by the detection of the culprit has been all the greater because he happens to be one of the hrst amongst the doctors of Paris. Added to this, the man is a real count-the Count de Coartez de la Pommer&ge, one of the finest names in the Province of Orleanuais. As may be supposed, when we add to this im mense advantage ol noblesse, that of youth, good looks, and plausible address, the Count's principal practice has always been amongst the ladies, and it is by one of the fairest and most interesting of his clients that this system, which has governed his success ia acquiring a fortune, has been discovered. The victim had called bim in some time ago for a slight irritation of the throat, to which she had been subject for some years. The doctor beheld at once the un piotected position of a widow, with small for tune, living an isolated life, with bnt few in timate friends, and scarcely any relatives. The prey was marked out and pursued with perseverance. In a short time the widow had insurtd her life for tbe fabulous sum of hve blinded thousand francs, the doctor undertak ing the management of the whole affair. No sooner is the first instalment paid in than the widew dies?this excites the curiosity of the insurance office; the ma U r is looked into.no other doctor is found to have attended her save one, who, being sent for by the servant, in whose mind '? not suspicion,'r as she says, "but uneasiness," had arisen, went one ni^ht to fetch in the doctor who lived In the next bonse. This gt-ntleman, on finding the symp toms to be nothing more serious than a little nautea, accompanied by a burning patn in the chest, believed It nothing more than indiges tion, and, after having ordered a mild emetic, withdrew, promising to <epeat his visit the next day. Bnt before be left his bed in the morning he was required by a note from the lady containing the lee for ttesingle visit, with tbe request thai, ?? As his Emetic had done her ' ro good?quite tbe reverse?she must beg of him never to set his foot in her bouse again.'* Tbe message was so abrupt and ill-mannered that it became a nutural subject of conversa tion among the doctors, who in every country are recognized as gossips of the first water. One of these, to whom ihe note was shown* happened to recognise the band-writing as that of the Count, and, when the news of the death of the patient was made public, he in stantly informed the insurance otii.e of the circumstance. It was thus that suspicion first fell upon the doctor, ana the detection en^u^d. The affair has made a tremendous noise in Par is, and to frightened the women, old and young, titled and untitled, that the profession is at a discount. Theopbile Onutter will probably arrange a nice little comedy of horrors out of it, so that tbe ?? sensation" will la*t through the winter, or at least until something equally appalling shall occur. Fiohtiho, Swkakino, and Prayixo Indi vidual.?H? ndricks the te:urned-from-Ricb mond correspondent or the N. Y. Herald, tells the follow ii g: I em satisfied tba* Mr. Sherman, of Colonel Baker's detective force in Washington, is an individual of transcendently mixed qualities. On tbe morning succeeding my transfer to No. 10 I witnessed a sc. ne in whi?.h he figured con spicuously conclusive of this tact. A prayer meeting had heen convened, when sndJenly an outsider insisted on taking a small bencu? the only ore, by the way, in the room?in pos session of Mr. Sherwan, who, as 1 afterwards saw, was the leader of the meeting. "I'll fight you for that bench," said the out sider, taking off his coat. "1 shan't go there to fl;'ht yor," leplied Mr. Sherman, "tut attempt to take a way this bench and I'll give you a camned licking." The outsider advanced and made a demon stration to seize tbe bench. The fist of Mr. Sherman suddenly leaped from the rl^htshoul der, and that outsider dropped. "We have settled the case of that damned cuss," said Nr. Sherman. "Now we'll go on with the meeting, Brother Merrltt, will yoa lead in prayer."' Military Movements at tii* Wkst.? Advices from Memphis state that the 16th army corpr, General Hurlbnt's, is preparing for a . movement southward, it is supposed into Mis sissippi, for tbe purpose of attacking what rem nants of Joe Johnston's rebel army may yet remain in that State, and securing-the large stores of corn t nd forage that are known to have been collected by the rebels at difT?r?nt T cints on tbe railway to Mobile. A large force of cavalry reported to be some P2,000 strong, is already concentrated at Corinth to participate In thiB campaign.?.y. Y. Com.
