New Orleans, March 13. There was (rreat indifference shown toward the elec tion yesterday by a large number of vo ters, a great many of whom, especially the business men, did not go near the polls. " ' Judge Kellogg, Collector of Customs, has received news from Washington that tbe authorities had dismissed all persons engaged in the seizure of property in the South, claimed as belonging to the ton- "federate government All cotton now seized is to be held antil a full examina tion can be had. i . Mrs. Jefferson Davis is here en route to Canada, . In Iberville Parish last week, at a sheriffs sale, six fine sugar plantations were sold, for what the elaborate machin ery Crst cost. . Hon. J. T. Trotter, one of the leading judges in Mississippi, died at Holly Springs last week. Daily passenger trains are now run ning between New Orleans and Canton. , The Old Pontchartrain Railroad Com pany, have declared a dividend of 10 per cent The Clarksville, Red river, correspon dent of the Hnuston Telegraph charges the Treasury agents there of seizing 1700 boles of cotton which it was well known did not belong to the late Confederacy, and throujih a third party offered to re lease the cotton for the consideration of 300 bales, which wag refused, and the cotton was moved at once at a mnch greater expense than it would hare cost the owner. ; Every effort was made at Clarksville and New Orleans to secure its release, but without success. New Obleaks, March 13. Cotton is dull sales to-dny 1800 bales of middEng at 4244c; sales within the past three days, 11,000 bales; receipts for four days, 2200 bales; decrease in receipts over fonr days of last week, 1100 bales, as compared with the corresponding days; molasses, 90c; sugar 133il4e; gold, 28c; sterling, 38ic; New York checks, from par to ic discount ; stock of cotton in the city, 188,000 bales.

MEMrniS, TENNESSEE, WEDNESDAY EVENING, MARCH .'14, Ths Silver Kin of Vevada. Tbe following account of theailver mines of the new State of Nevada, reads like an Eastern romance: ' ' There Is but one main vein from which the silver ore is taken. It Is tbe largest one known, averaging thirty or forty feet in thickness, and has been opened for a distance of about three miles. - i There are now at least seventy-five quartz mills working the ores from dif ferent claims on the vein, one of which the Gould and Curry mill was built at a cost of half a million. The average yield of all the ores worked il about (50 per ton. Id tbe latter part of the year 18C2 the silver mines at Keese river were discov ered, and tbe Keese river mining district, in which the town of Austin, is located, wna formed. This district, the mining belt of which is about six miles long by three wide, contains at least 3000 claims. The veins are small in comparison to the Comstock at Virginia, but what they lack in size is more than made tip in richness. .'' ' " ' ' I According to tbe returns of the asses sor for the year 1864, the average yield . f .11 U oi wnrkerl in the district was two hundred and four dollars per ton, a I I 1 ' L nn n.an.Janl in tha mm. yieiU WUIUU Un uo jiicvtuou.w ing history of the world, .

Besides u. d. wivAH rlit.ricL there are a num- IUS i,v.- - " ' , ber of mining districts extending seventy miles north and a nunareo anu imr.v miles south from Austin, all of whioh contain valuable quartz veins pf gold, silver and copper, and, in fact, nearly all of the differeut kinds of minerals known. To persons witthing to invest capital, I know of no better inducements than those now offered at Austin. Claims which can at present be bought for a . n, n 1 1 nriia nrill in three or . four years be worth fortunes. The cost of luiwirinir .no nvp, hi. iirH.KUL. uniuic lu iuu 'great distance machinery has to be nauiea ana me mgu p,ivc muu., about forty dollars per ton. Add to this the coat of miningtne ore from the vein?, and it will be seen that it has to be rich to pay for working.' : There are thousands of tons of ore in the Reese river district, which will yield from fitly to sixty dollars a ton: but which, until the railroad is completed, enabling pi to reduce them for a reasonable sum, will have to lie perfectly worthless. . , J- The State is now producing about fif teea millions yearly, and with railroad facilities I see no reason why it cannot be increased to a hundred millions. The people of our State are glad to see the .., iih which the) railroad is being pushed forward, both from the east aud . west, and nope ere long o see me great national thoroughfare completed.

' ; On the memorable 9th of April, 1865, the Lieutenant General commanding the -M;a .f tUa TTnitprl Klntp ill rprtnnnae RlliilEQ " ' w - - - r to a note from the General commanding the forces of the Confederate States, sent this significant reply: "I will state, however, General, that I am equally anxious for peace with yourself, and the whole North entertains the same foeling ; th terms upon which peace can be had are well understood." A few hours after the reception of that note General Lee surrendered his army, and the days of the Confederate Govern ment were numbered. The terms npon which, we were assured peace could be had were " well under stood." They had been made but a few weeks before by the Secretary of State, speaking for the United States, in a con ference with commissioners from Rich mond. . . ' Then Gen. Grant said, and said by au thority, to the South: Lay down your arms; obey the Constitution of the United States ; accept the abolition of slavery as an accomplished fact sira- Ely this and nothing more and you Can ave peace, and be at once restored to your old relations in the Union. These were the terms which General Graat tendered. They were well known. They had been offered by the Govern ment of the Union ; they were the only terms that had been offered or required; and they had been made known through out the land. The war was not ended. The Confed erate cause was desperate; but it cviwnot last Tbe Republics of the South still had 150,000 men in "the field, drilled, disciplined, inured to hardship, devoted to their Government, ard ably officered. They might have been crushed ; bnt re duced to desperation, stimulated by the memory and glory of their past achieve ments, fighting with the enerey of despair, with disfranchisement, con fiscation, the prison, exile, or dVath, as the alternative of succeas,none w ill affirm that their annihilation .could have been accomplished without a terrible cost in treasure and blood, and none but God can know that success was beyond their reach. ' , Such was Ike situation when Grant, with the aagacity of a great statesman, with the prudence of a great genecal, wisely declined driving the army and the people of the South to extremity, and of in tukl,lf t( hia vnsrntnsnL aa tha ict IU . m ui. v. - e.

Their' acceptance, on tb one part, and their ratification on tie other, constituted a treaty, entered into because it was deemed advantageous to both parties, and binding on etch. This is the be nd. To it, the world, posterity, Heaver, will hold both partie. , We appeal to a I mankind to witness that we of tba So .th have complied in ward and deed, in yood faith, with all tbe t.rms required of us. We have laid down our arms to obey the Constitu tion we have accepted and confirmed the abolition of slavery.

Sehna Visitor. The White Eouse Plundering; Card from " ' " ' the Late Steward. ': ' Editor National Ikteixigexceb:-!-Since my return to this city my atteh tion has been called to some remarks : made in the House of Representatives by Mr. Stevens, of Pennsylvania, on the Question f aprjroprintions lor lurnish ing tbe White House. Mr, Stevens is reported to have said " that the steward was responsible, but had failed in his duty by allowing tne spoons, linen, etc, to be taken trom the bouse during -Mrs. Lincoln's illness." . I was appointed steward soon after the death of the lute President, and on the day I received the appointment I took an inventory of every article in the White House, and some moulds alter; trans ferred the same to mv successor. ' I can but consider, from Mr. Stevens' language, that the slur was intended for me, and take tbis metnou to contraciict the assertion. t The Committee of Appropniation ex mined me, and are fully satisfied that I transferred to my successor all of the property I had received, with oue.excep- tion, viz ; Uue set ol clnnaware, which t hd,; by order of the Secretary of the In terior, transferred to the inmates of the White House. The value of .said china wa $150, and this was all that was defi cient at the time of the transfer. i . Mi. Stevens must have known at tbe time he spoke that he made an unfounded assertion, and one that future examina tion must bav contradicted, 1 : I would only remark that whatever ar ticles are missing from the White Home must have been taken from thence either before or after my appointment j Respectfullyyours, ' j ' Thomas Stackpole. j Washington, March 2, 18C6. j . . : .,, . , . . r The Jews. .,' . ' An Israelite of Bavaria thus writei pf the restoration of the chosen people : ; The reeuluxity of the Jews is now be ginning to take place. - Not only many single families immigrate to Palestine, but there has been formed a number ot societies in almost every land on this continent to prepare an immigration on a larcfB scale, provided with all possible means, money, implements and tools of every kind, to commence tbe cultivation of the Ions desolated land at once, and with the utmoBt vieor. There are men of considerable wealth among them, not one witbout some means ; enough, at least, to defray the expenses ot the journey, and to purchase a plot of ground. I am happy to state that I am one of the leading members of a society forming here in Bavaria, which numbers already over nine hundred heads of families, beside a number of young people who would not form an alliance with the other sex until settled irnthe Holy Land, npon the soil of their rightful heritage. He also adds : Tbe Gentiles hereabouts that is, the petty German Protestant kingdoms and principalities are even more astir about Palestine than tbe Jews. Stonewall Jackson' Daughter. Speaking of the only living scion of the late Stonewall Jackson, a writer in the Richmond Enquirer sayi: She i a bright little cherub, abont three years old, with fuir hair, blue eyes and a complexion of mingled lilies and roses the lilies, however, greatly pre dominating, although, perhaps, she does not look very robust, bhe wore a Maria Louise blue merino, trimmed with nar row black velvet ribbon, edged with white. Her little cloth cloak was of a light drab color, ornamented with bands ot silk aud fancy buttons. Her hat was of English straw, trimmed with blue ve1 vet and blue and white feathers. A tip pet and muff of ermine completed tbe costume of the little fairy, and she looked as enchanting as any mother's darling need look. Sue was borne in the arms of a colored nurse, of whom she seemed very lbnd, and to whom she was prattling with exuberant gaiety. The dark-eyed, sua looking lady who followed ber in a widow's cap and garb of deepest mourn ing, completed the picture of sunshine and shadow. ' Bad Death cf a Toang Lady. A young lady whose parents reside in the southvrn part of Washington county, lnd., died of irigtu on Tuesday night last, under the following sad circumstances : A brother of the deceased young lady has been absent in the army for the past three years, and nnexpectedly returning home, thought to take the family by sur prise. Atung accordingly, he knocked at the room door in which his two sisters were alwpiug, and having aroused them, they responded irora within without un barring tbe doer, but failing to elicit any other reply than that of a rap, became frightened, arose and attempted to leave the room, but in doing so one of the sis ters fell prostrate on the tioor and ex pired ia a few annates having, it is said, died from actual fright A Remarkable Dream. ) A fnw days since a robber entered the house of Mrs. Powell in Lafayette avenue, Brooklyn, and carried off $.00. Mrs. Powell saw th thief as he made the erit. and was able to identify him when ar rested shortly after. No elu could be obtained to the stolen funds. Mrs. Pow ell, however, dreamed that it wms secreted in a batch of dough. he communicated her dream to the police, and Captain Lcich, going to the room of the robber the next day, discovered tbe money hid den in a loaf of bread.
