CASTLE THUNOER.-We suppose there is hardly any prison in the whole country, mote notorious from the events of the last few years, than Castle Thunder, in this city. It has been used siuce the first year of the war as a military prison for the con? finement of evil doers of all kinds and grades, by the Confederate authori? ties, up to thc evacuation, and by the Federal authorities since that time. It may bc a matter of surprise this morning, to some of our readers, to know that this veteran old head? quarters of crime and guilt is this day to be vacated as a prison, and to be turned over to its owner, Mr. John H. Greanor, of this city. We are sure he will hardly recognize his own property. What tales of horror could be told, if its silent walls could tell all that has transpired within their limits. That other famous abode, the Libby prison, has been fitted np, and will hereafter bo used as the general military prison in this city. All the prisoners in Castle Thunder will be transferred to their new home to-day. [Richmond Enquirer, 12f7?. IMMIGRATION. -The Commissioner of Immigration, at Washington, has published, in pamphlet form, the laws and instructions relating to the sub? ject of immigration, in English, French aud German, for distribution in Europe. We extract some of the questions propounded ii it to thc several State governments: 1. What class of unskilled laborers aro most required iu your State ano neighborhood at the present time, and tho average wages paid for tin same? 2. What kind of mechanics or ar tisans aro certain of employment, an< the average wages of tho same ? 3. What moans, either by legisla ?ive action or private enterprise, hov? been established to secure the ad vantages arising from the settlemen of immigrants in your midst ? Thc object is to furnish those abor, to emigrate such information ns ma; direct them to the localities when this labor is most in demand. [ (/ol' Isboro .Yen/s. - ? --*.-.

Missouri claims $4,<>00,^v*, ?f t!" United States, as heir* the expended by her forano Government Princess Anno Murat has resigned herself to a rich young duke, the list having been exhausted among the heirs of crowns. Tho Emperor Napo? leon, who cherishes a high regard for her, has endowed her some three millions. Her mother was a Miss Frazer, of Charleston, S. G., cousin of the wife of Dr. Simms, and on her father's side is a Bonaparte Princess, the right divine being grand-daughter of the King of Naples, whose wife was a sister of Napoleon I. Princess Amie's husband is the Duke de Mon ehy. Princess of Poix, grandee of Spain, and by birth a grand cross of the order of Malta. He is twenty four years old-a little younger than she-and his income is $75,000 per vear. The bridal presents had already cost $124,000. The New York Tribune, looking at home, says : To-day a black man is not allowed a license to drive his own horse and cart, and work for such as choose to employ him, right here in New York. He has had a hard straggle for the right to ride in our city horse cars, paying his fare like other people, and has barely secured it, if it be. secured, after years of insult and outrage. If a black builder were this day to take a contract to erect a house or store for some one who chose to employ him, and should employ black carpen? ters and masons on the job, we believe they would be stoned off it before the week's end. From the Concord (New Hamp? shire) Patriot, we are pleased to be able to record that General Pierce lias so far recovered from his late dangerous sickness that he was able to attend morning service at St. Paul's, in that city, on Sunday last, when he wa?; received into the com? munion of tho Episcopal church. The subscription for the purpose of building a cathedrial to the mem? ory of Bishops Polk, Otey and other Confederate dead, appears to be fill? ing up rapidly. The rector of St. Lazaras' Church, Memphis, who sug? gested tlie appropriate mode of re? spect, acknowledges the receipt of $7,000 in thc period of two days. "Bolly," a leading gambler in Cincinnati, distinguished himself the other day, by escorting a crowd of shoeless refugees from North Carolina to a shoe store, covering their feet with leather and paying tho bill. A Committee of the Mississippi Legislature have reported against passing the Constitutional Amend? ment, not for any objection to the first, but to the second clause of said amendment. Several negro lobby delegates are . to be sent to Wasiflfcgton, at an ex I pense of $10,000 each to their con? stituents. These funds are to pay i the delegates' expenses in presenting i their clainii: to Congress. - We learn from the Huntsville 1 (Alabama) Advocale, that all the pro porty of C. C. Clay.
