Alleged DiicoTi-rj- of Gold in Montana ST. Loms, Dec. 7.-Tbe Virginia City (Montana) Post, ot November 4, contains a glowing description of a most extraordi? nary discovery, about four miies from Helena, in that Territory, made by a man name Brown, one of thc original dis? coverers of tho Gould A Curry ledge of Nevada. The discovery is represented as a well donned ledge, fully five feet wide, with a gold vein three feet wide, three fourths of tho entire substance therein being pure gold. On each side of this vein there is a casing of ono foot of quartz, which will assay from $400 to $2,000 the ton. "What gives an air of credibility to this seemingly exaggerated account, is the fact that Col. Insley, a well known citizen of St. Joseph, now in Montana, saying in a closing letter to his family, that ho has seen a specimen of this* quartz, which ?seemed to be solid gold. The Richmond Wlrtg mentions that ono of the most startling bills of mortality ever exhibited, conies from the Freedmen's Bureau, in the confesi?n that, out of tim thousand negroes sent hy General ?Sherman down the Cape Fear River, in March last, two thousand died in the short space of two months and a half. Had the Asiatic cholera, the small pox, or any of those other scourges that sometimes sweep off thou? sands and tens of thousands, prevailed among them, the result would have been astonishing, but it is absolutely frightful, when we bear in mind that no such dread? ful epidemic prevailed among them, but that they were carried off by ordinary dis? eases, or, perhaps, we should say, by that cause more fell than any disease, fanatical philanthropy. At this rate of mortality, it woidd require only twelve months and a half to bury the whole (en thousand. CRIME IS ST. Lons. -The prevalence of crime in St. Louis appals the newspapers, one of whom writes thus: ,4Men are bludgeoned and robbed under gas lamps, on thoroughfares, at 8 o'clock in the evening. Banks are robbed in open day-light. Collectors and messengers are. knocked down, and their money packages seized at noon, in the heart of the city. Ladies have their purses snatched from their hands while walking, in the conscious? ness of imagined security, along the streets, and scores of dwellings are entered nightly and plundered. And yet no arrests arc made." The huge iron frame-work which is to support thc four tiers of boxes ot the new Opera House in Paris, was completed on the 31st of October. There are to be nei? ther pillars nor columns to interrupt the view in this building. The four tiers, together with the stage, are to be support? ed so as that this mass of iron will not be visibh>, and the galleries and boxes will .seem to he suspended in the air. Dates from Nashville, of the 5th instant, state that the bill allowing negroes to tes? tify in the courts was tabled in the Louse by a vote of thirty to twenty-seven. Tho defeat of the bill is mainly due to tho loyal radicals from East Tennessee, who voted against the measure almost to a man. The leading conservatives voted for the bill. A party of negroes from a plantation near Mobile, armed with rifles and sabres, attacked the white men of a neighboring farm. The leader of the negroes was killed. The others escaped, leaving the weapons behind. The swamps in tho vi? cinity of Mobile are said to be lilied with deserters from thc army. The Hon.

A Wilmington paper regrots that there is no Freedmen's Bureau to give relief to the factory girl beaten by an overseer in ?me of the Northern establishments. Un? fortunately, she was white. "Cowden," the famous plantation of the lato Govornor Hammond, is for rent. This is one of the finest estates in South Caro? lina, producing seventy bushels of corn and a bale of cotton to the acre.
