Treasury Afl'airx. NEW YOEE, Sept. 26.-Hie Herald's Washington special says: The act of Congress authorizing the 10.40 loan, fixed tho limit at 8200,000,000; but the Secretary of tlie Treasury, finding that it interfered with the taking of 5 per cent, loan, discontinued it, when $173,000,000 were taken. There is a growing probability that the remain? ing 27,000,000 will shortly-be put upon the market. .Mexican Affair*. NEW YORK, September 28.-From Mexico we have advices of continued fighting and uncertainty. The city of Matamoras is fairly beseiged by the Liberals, under Gen. Escobodo. There is a garrison of eighteen hun? dred men in the city, and the attack? ing force consists of twenty-five hun? dred or three thousand men. exclusive of Corrina's predatory bands. Ef? ficiently handled, the Imperial troops should suffice to hold< the city, but the .Inarists think so meanly ol' Mejia, tue .encrai in command, that they assert that, with a little more ammu? nition, they could carry the city by storm. . The Republican forces had captured the little town of Catorzo, in Leon, and secured musketry and ammunition. "Moreover,1' quaintly adds the officer in command, 'the merchants of that city furnished me with $18,000 for the use of tho troops." At the pass of Cubrus, the Juarists also claim to have defeated nine hundred Imperialists with two hundred cavalry, and are further said to have occupied the town of Cara? va jal. Matamoras papers make light of and entirely deny these successes. Juarez is at Chihuahua, with five thousand men. Test On til for Members of ?'ongress Tile President's Opinion Asked. WASHINGTON, September 29.-A letter was recently addressed by some of the citizens of Charlottesville, Vir? ginia, to President Johnson, prompt? ed-by the difficulties which surround them in relation to thc approaching j Congressional election. They appeal to aim for counseh and advice as to | their proper course of action, being wholly uninformed as to whether the test oath will probably be repealed or modified so as to admit Southern members. They have thought it possible that he might enlighten them on the sub? ject. They say their main purpose is to pursue that course which will be most likely to sustain him and his policy in the administration of the Government. The Attorney-General, to whom the letter was referred, re? plies that he is instructed by the Pre? sident to say, ' 'that he has no more means of knowing wba| Congress may do in regard to the oath about which ?hey inquire, than any other : citizen, but it is his earnest wish that V loyal and true men, to whom no ob? jection can be made, should be elect? ed to Congress." This, Mr. Speed says, is not an official letter, but a simple expression of individual opi? nion and wish. A Texas lett er-writer says: "Any man in this State who does not own four hundred head of cattle and seventy or one hundred horses and mides, is worse than worthless. Beef sells here at five cents per pound, horses and mules from fifteen dollars | to thirty dollars for round lots, and ! are within 250 miles of a good market.

The termination of a sanguinary contest, which for the past four years has presented an'impassable barrier to all social or com? mercial intercourse between tho two great j sections of our country, having at length . happily cleared away all obstacles to a re? moval of those relations which formerly bound us together in a fraternal union, I take thc earliest opportunity afforded mc by this auspicious event, to greet my South? ern friends, and to solicit from them a re? newal of that oxtensivcbusiness connection which for a quarter of a century has been uninterrupted, save by the great public calamity to which I have adverted. It is scarcely necessary, on the threshold of a business re-union, I should repeat the warning so often given to my friends-to beware of all those spurious and deleteri? ous oompounds which, under the specious and false titles of Imported Wines, Bran? dies, Holland Gin, Liquors, Ac, havo been equally destructive to the health of our citizens as prejudicial to the interests of tho legitimate importer. Many years of my past life have been expended in an open aud candid attempt to expose these wholesale frauds; no time nor expense has been spared to accomplish this salutary purpone, and to place before my friends and the public gt-ncrally, at the lowest possible market price, and in such quantities as might suit their convenience, a truly genuine imported article. Twenty-live years' business transactions with thc largest and most respectable ex? porting houses in France and Great Britain have afforded me unsurpassed facilities for supplying our home market with Wines, Liquors and Liquores of the best and most approved brands in Europe, in addition to my own distillery in Holland for thc manu? facture of thc "Schiedam Schnapps." Tlie latter, so long tested and approved by tile medical faculties of tho United States, Weat Indies and South America as an invaluable Therapeutic, a wholesome, pleasant and perfectly safe beverage in all climates and during all seasons, quickly ?xeited thc cupidity of the bonn- manufac? turers ami venders of a spurious article Hider the same name. I trii-t that I have, aftep much toil and (spense, surrounded all my importations vitli safeguards and directions which, with irdinary circumspection, will insure their lelivery, as [ receive them from Europe, to di my customers. I would, however, recommend, in all rases where it is possible, that orders be ont direct to my Depot. 22 Beaver street, <ew York., or that purchases bc made of ny accredited agents. in addition to a large stock of Wines, "randies, Ac., in wood, I have a consider? able supply of* .old tried foreign .Wines, em? bracing vintages of many past years, boi? led np before thc commencement of the rar, which I can especially recommend to II connoisseurs of these rare luxuries. In conclusion, I would specially call the ttention of my Southern customers to the d van ta ge to be derived by transmitting le ir orders without loss of timi', or (Milling ersonally the Depot, in order to insure he fulfillment ol' their favors frera trie pre? cut large and wei! selected assortment.
