A Centory'a ' Search for Captain Bliad' Buried Treasure. A oorrespondent of the New York Herald, writing from Cbuslpr, Mahone Bay, Nova Scotin, givfit the-following remarkable tiarrntive of Oak Island, around which there is wrapped gome th inn of romance. The island in a small one, on the south coast of Nova Scotia, where it is still believed by many per sons that Captain Kidd,' the notorious pirite, buried the bulk of his treasure. The writer stales that a century ago an old man resided in the then British colony of New England, whose life had been wrapped in mystery,, but lie was always believed to be of Captain Kidd's original rovers. When he died, the old man admitted that this suspiciou was well founded; that he did belong to the great pirate's crew, and had assisted, in burying over $4,000,001) of gold beneath the soil of a secluded island east of Bos ton, the proceeds of Kidd's , piracies. The settlers along the New England coast heard the story, and for years made an unsuccessful search for the subterranean treasure vault.- About 25 yenrs later, three men na.med 'Smith, Vand, and Mediums, took up land on Oak island. During their work in felling the forests they were astonished to find traces of former civilization, and subsequent discoveries recalled to their minds the old sailor's story. The secluded situation of the island, the marks of former habitation appeared in keening with all they had heatd of Kidd's hidden plunder. Subseaupnllv thev discovered an old nit that had been tilled. The mouth of it was seven feet in diameter, and, the earth with which it was filled up being soft and loamy, was easily removed. They descended toot by foot, and pushed their explorations forward but found no signs of the lost treasure, and finally abandoned the search. Fifteen years later, an old resident, named Lynd, examined the ground, and, becoming infatuated with the idea that these were the vaults of Kidd, formed a company, and, early in the following Bpritig, commenced the search anew, under the supervision of the three origi nal discoverers. Fifty feet from the surface tbey camo to a tier of. putty. Further down was a flag stone one foot by two, with some rudely cut letters nnd figures upon it Tbey hoped this in scription would assist in solving the mys tery. But they were unable to decipher it. At a depth of ninety feet tbey found indications of water; at ninety-three feet tho water increased. Night coming on, they sunk a crow-bar down five feet, and struck a hard, impenetrable sub stance, found by the sides of the piL Some supposed it was wood, others called it a chest. They quit work for the night and returned home, confident that with the morning's sun they would possess the long sought treasure; and they discussed the question of its di vision. " Morning settled the matter, however, fur on repairing to work they found tiO feet water in the shaft To bail out the water was impossible. But a main sbatt was sunk by the side of the old one, to be tunneled at the bot tom, in hopes of striking the money chest. When within 10 feet of the proper depth, the pit gave way, and the water flowed in so rapidly that the men barely had time to escape with their lives. Fifty years glided into eternity before the work was well renewed, yet the shafts and tunnels still remained full of water, which rose and fell with the ebbing and flowing of the tide in the bay, showing clearly that the island had been pierced by subterranean passnges. This brings us down to a period of fifteen years ago. A number of young men in the summer oflH4S proceeded to the island and re newed the work. They followed down the shaft, and en countered the same difficulty water coming in upon them. But tbey pierced the bottom of the pit and struck a hard wooden substance ; cut through a spruce log six inches thick, and finally struck a sharp metalic substance. But 20 inches deeper they bored into more wood, and below it the same mineral substance. Among other articles taken out was Spanish grass and part of the hoop of a barrel with the bark in a state of good preservation. It was afterward fonnd that several drains had been built, entering the base of the island at low water mark. The stones forming the arch of the drains were found coated with Spanish grass. Further discoveries revealed the fact that the drains ran in the direction of the old pit But the last dollar of the young toilers was spent, and they abandoned the work, yet still believing that they were n the right track of Kidd's trea sure. In 1861 new pits were sunk and tun neled, but without any satisfactory re sults. Such was the faith in the project, LA however, that a new company "was formed, and includes some of the most influential men in Halifax. They are now having built a dam round the base of the island, for the purpose of cutting off the water from the subterranean channels, when they propose to pump the water ont of the excavations already made, and follow the channel to their termini. It is expected that the dam will be completed the present week, and the company now feel sanguine that Kidd's four millions of gold are almost within their reach. . "Such is the history of the "Toilers of the Isle." That a stupendous work of art has been constructed at Oak Island, by unknown hand?, is a certainty. That most of the material used is indigenous to that region is also certain. What these works were constructed for, and by whom, and what they contain, alone re main mysteries, which let us hope will soon be cleared up. FROM VIRGINIA. Restoration of the Washington Statue at Lexington Address of Ex-Governor Letcher. Lkxin(!Ton, Va., September 13. A celebration took place at the Military Institute, Lexington, Va, on Monday, on the occasion of replacing the statue ot Washington, removed by Gen. Hunter during the war. Ex-Governor Letcher delivered the ceremonial address, which is quite lengthy. He speaks of Governor Pier pont in the'following terms, and, consid ering the radical course of that gentle" man, there is as much of this as could have been expected : "The friends of this institution are greatly indebted to the Executive of Vir ginia for the Heal, promptness and pub lic spirit displayed by him in securing its re-esUblixbtnent and aiding by all the means in his power its reconstruction. We honor him for his services in this behalf, for the aid and encouragement he has given, for the important and valuable services he has rendered to the great cause of scientific and practical educa tion. In the name of the Board of Visi tors I return him our thanks." 1 Of Geti. Grant, he speaks in respect ful, if not cordial terms, but this is all he says on the subject, and concludes as follows: "Iti closing this branch of my imper fect address, it is a duty and pleasure to thank the general commanding the army of the I'nited Slates for the interest he has .manifested and the favor he has shown in furnishing the arms necessary for the successful operations of the in stitution, and in restoring tho cadet bat tery." There was much, says the Timet, in the udilress that, if not harmful, was at least inappropriate. Letcher indulged in a long excuse for the South, arguing the question in a way entirely natural in a Southern Slate Uights Democrat, but ending in sensibly renouncing the heresy as a practical question. . In worse taste than that was the ful some eulogy of Jeff. Davis, which was dragged into the body of the address without the least necessity therefor. The following is his closing paragraph on the reconstruction topic: " A mujority, in the two Houses of Congress has denied representation to the people ot the south. Let us not, however, despair on this account. An act so wrong in itself, so utterly indefen sible, cannot be justified or excused either on the score of principle or poli cy. This will correct itself, and, ere long, the people of the South will have their riclite fullv recognized. Let us be, patient, and all will yet come right." AN ELOPEMENT CASE. An Uncle Elopes with His Niece Almost ratal Denouement, Quite an excitement was raised on the streets of our usually quiet town on Thursday last, by an occurrence of an uncommon nature, in this vicinity, the facts of which, as near as we could learn them, are about as follows: It seems that the tender nassion bad an existence in the breasts of a couple of parties of the opposite sex, (relatives, unlortunate ly an uncle and neice,) living near Grenada, and such a thing as marriage between them would not be entertained by their relatives, they determined to take matters in their own hands, ana ac complish their wishes by the only method known to them" elopement. Accord ingly, with that intention, tbey took the treigbt train on vj ednesday last, when everything seemed to favor them, and arrived in this place in search of a bar- son and a license. But in this case, as in others we have heard of, the course of true-love was somewhat milled no license could be had the cruel laws of the State of Mississippi lorbid it Mean while time sped on. The relations more particularly thoso of the young lady had started in pursuit, and on Thursday at noon the never failing ex press, upon which the nnhJeached Guil ford is always to be found, ready to carry passengers from the depot to our town, arrived freighted ith the party antago nistic to the would be marriage. Matters were soon brought to a rrisis, as it did not require the argus eye of a Metropolitan policeman to spy out the stopping place of the fugitives. On learning of their wherabouts, the pursners immediately proceeded thence, and meeting the would-be bridegroom, made a most mur derous attack upon him, in which he was somewhat injured, and but for the inter ference of outsiders wonld no doubt be now on the other side of Jordan. As it turned out, however, the frightened lover managed to make his escape, and the last beard of him, he was going at the top of his speed through the woods, mi nus his bat The lady in the case is now in the custody of her friends.

Among other ex travagant notions which he indulged in, was the resting of bis body on a set of parlor furniture which cost only 112,000. His fair daughter Fanny inherits bis Roman nose, general cast of feature, and his extravagant notions, and has been in the habit of annually spending a small fortune in dry goods aud tilting hoops. Last winter the house of Mr. Isenburg was burned down and Miss Fanny lost a great portion of her ward robe. It was fortunately insured; but for some reason the insurance compa nies refused to pay the bill and the case has got into the courts ; and among the papers which came up for examination is Miss Fanny's schedule of clothing and its value, the total of which amounts to f 21,000 1 Ben.
