From New York.— This morning the

St. Loci?, May 6, iB6O,
J. H. Blackburn, alias Dr. Tumblety,
charged with complicity with Harold in the
assassination and Conspiracy, was arrested
here to-day In accordance with orders from
the War Department.
The New York Herald says :
A man known as J. H. Blackburn, alias
Dr. Tumblety, was arrested in St. Louis yes
terday, by order of the War Department, on
suspicion of complicity in the great Wash
ington assassination plot. He is said to have
been formerly on intimate terms with Booth
and Harold. This Dr. Tumblety is probably
the individual who, it will be ’remembered
by the people of this city and Brooklyn,
formerly nourished here under the title of
the “Great Indian Herb Doctor," and who
made himself conspicuous wherever he ap
peared by the astounding ‘ioudness’’ of his
apparel, the immensity of his nicely waxed
mustache, and the dignified stride with which
he moved along the street. • He was usually
“dressed within an inch of his life,” and a
little beyond the extreme of fashion. He
was decidedly the biggist “swell” which the
town contained, and when he appeared in
the Park for his regular airings he never
failed to create a sensation.
Poverty of the People of Virginia
Late Richmond despatches show .the terrible
state of impoverishment in which ihe people
of Virginia are nowfouudto be, and to which
tliey have been reduced by the drafts of the
drafts of tire rebel military estatiiishmeut on
their resources of all kinds. Thousands of
the Inhabitants of Richmond; Petersburg and
the surrounding country are preserved from
starvation only by the supplies of food which
the United States commissaries furnish them.
Strong desires are expressed for the removal
by government of ali re9trictiQiis on trade
not contraband of war, so that facilities may
be afforded for a resuscitation .of industry,
byth in the towns and rural districts. At
present the farmers generally are without
the implements and 3ceds necessary to do
their planting, and unless these cafi be speed
ily procured there will lie no crops forthcom
ing in the State in the summer and fall.

The Ram Stonewall in American Waters.
The rebel ram Stonewall has at last made
her appearance in American waters. She ar
rived at Nassau, in the Bahamas, on the 6th
inst., from Teneriffe, whence she sailed on
the Ist of April. One of the correspondent,
at Nassau visited her incognito, and furnishes
a most interesting description of what he saw
on board. Siie is a formidable vessel, strong-,
ly iron-plated, with two stationary turrets,
three heavy guus, and a solid steel pointed
beak of twenty feet in length, lor ramming,
[injecting from her bow: ' Altogether she is
considered a very staunch and dangerous
antagonist. Her entire crew, officers and
men, numbers about seventy, and everythin*
about her presented the appearance of the
best man-of-war order, neatness and rigid
The tJtonewall’s officers, raahy of whom
were on shore, sporting their rebel uniforms
in the streets ot Nassau, acknowledged that
they were too late in getting afloat to be of
any service to the Jeff Davis cause, and ad
mitted that the war is ended. They said she
was originally intended to break the Wil
mington blockade, but that now, as she
could be of qo use to the rebels here, she
would probably be taken back to Europe
and sold. She was to leave Nassau on the
evening of the 7th inst, having .obtained a
supply of coal. One report said she was
bound lor Galveston; hut others gave her a
different destination. It was understood that
our Consul at Nassau, immediately after the
arrival of the Stonewall at that place, des
patched a fast vessel for Key West, Fin.,

The Trial of the Conspirators.
The trial of the assassination conspirators
in Washington is proceeding; but the re
porters for the press are still excluded from
its sessions, ami theieforc little regarding it
can be learned. It is believed, however,that
the authorities will soon permit certain por
tions of the evidence to be daily made pub
lic. Several of the accused have succeeded
in securing counsel.
Sherman's Army in Richmond.
Though it was expected that there would
be a graud review of Sherman’s army on the
occasion of its passage through Richmond,
none took place, owing to the bad feeling
between Generals Sherman and Halleck,
generated, it is understood, by the proceed
ings of the latter in countermanding the or
ders of the former to his subordinates during
the truce with Joe Johnston.
On the arrival of the Sixth Corps at Dan
ville, Va., the negroes were so rejoiced that
they commenced to desert the plantations in
alHbe surrounding country, and flock into
the town. This so secionsly interfered with
the prosecution of agricultural labor that
General Wright deemed it necessary to issue
an order instituting regulations to put a stop
to this hegira of the negroes, and requiring
them to remain at home and attend to their
usual work. General Wright has also warn
ed all guerrillas and paroled rebel soldiers
who break their paroles that they will be im
mediately hung when caught.

The glory has eutirely departed from the
little pesthole of the Bahamas, Nassau, since

The assassination of President Lincoln was
announced to the Colonial Legislature of the

A Terrible Storm.
The violent wind and ruin storm with
which we were visited on Tuesday evening
extended oyer a considerable stretch of
country-, doing gr-at damage in some local
ities Its effects were much more severe at
places both east and south of this ci*v than
here, houses being unroofed, walls, trees and
fences blown down, and a number of people
seriously injured. In Philadelphia it was
particularly destructive. At Albany there
has been another great rise in the ‘Hudson

* Slwnaon and Haileck.
currently reported that yester
day General Haileck called on General
Sherman at his quarters in Richmond,
but the General refused to see him.—
Gen Haileck stated that his object was to
explain and apologize for the language he had
used toward Gen. Sbmnan in his despatches
to Mr. Stuntou. Geu. Sherman has hereto
fore been the only friend and defende of
Gen. Haileck among the higher officers of the
army. ; ...
The officer? of Gen. Sherman are arriving
in considerable numbers. The greater part
of that army will l*e at, Alexandria by Mon
day or Tuesday-. They all express much
indignation at the ofliclAl and newspaper
strictures on Gen. Sherman’s first arrange
ment ior Gen. Johnston’s surrender. They
say it was entirely uncalled for in view of
the great services rendered by that army, and
that the arrangement was in strict coutbrini*
ty to President Lincoln's views and policy.

The Markets, Business, etc.
The stock market was firm yesterday
morning, but lower during the re 3t of the
day. Governments were quiet. Gold w’as
excited, and, after selling up to 133 1-2, clos
ed down town at 130 3-4. The closing price
lor gold in the evening was 130 ~>-S.
The rise in gold imparted a firmer feeling
to every department of trade yesterday, and
there was a very general though moderate
advance in the price of merchandise, both
foreign and domestic. Business was mode
rate, however, the merchants, as a general
thing, preferring to await a more settled state
of affairs before operating to any great ex
tent. Cotton was steady, while flour was
more active and sc. higher. Wheat was
firmer, while oats were lc. a 2c. higher, and

while beet was steady. Lard was more
