TWO HUNDRED and THIRTY MILLION DOLLARS.
By authority of the Secretary of the Treasury, the
undersigned, the General Subscription Agent for the
sale of United States Securities, offers to the public the
third series of Treasury Notes, bearing seven and
three-tenths per cent, interest per annum, known as
These notes are issued under date of July 15,1365,
and are payable three years from that date in curren
cy, or are convertible at the option of the holder into
U. S. FIVE-TWENTY SIX PER CENT.
These Bonds are now worth a handsome premium,
and are exempt, as are all the Government Bonds,
.from State, County, ami Municipal taxation, which adda
.from one to three per cent, pea- annum to their value, ac
cording to the rate levied upon other property. The
interest is payable semi annually by coupons attached
to each note, which may be ent off and sold to any
bank or bankers
The interest at 7.30 per cent, amounts to
One cent per day on a SSO note.
Two cents per day on a sfcloo note.
Ten cents per day on a SSOO note.
Twenty cents per day on a SI,OOO note.
One. Dollar per day on a $5,000 note.
Notes of all the denominations named will be prompt
ly furnished upon receipt of subscriptions.
The Notes of th.s Ta..d Series are precisely similar
iu form and privileges to the Seven-Thirties already
sold, except that the Government reserves to itself the
option of paying interest in gold c .in at 6 per cent., in
stead of 0 3-ioihs in currency. Subscribers will deduct
the interest in currency up to July 15th, at the time
when they subscribe.
The delivery of the notes of this third series of the
Seven-thirties will commence on the Ist of June, and
will be made promptly and continuously after that
The slight change made in the conditions of this
THIRD SERIES affects only the matter of Interest,
The payment in gold, if made, will be equivalent to
the currency interest of the higher rate.
The return to specie payments, in the event of which
only will the option to pay the interest in Gold be avail
ed of, wouid so reduce and equalize prices that pur
chases made with six per cent, iu gold would be fully
equal to those made with seven and three-tenths per
cent, in currency. This is
THE ONLY LOAN IN MARKET
Now offered by the Government, and its superior ad
vantages make it the
GREAT POPULAR LOAN OF THE I^EOPI.E.
Less than $'230,000,000 of the Loan authorized by
Congress are now oiKthe market. This amount, at the
rate at which it is being absorbed, will all be subscrib
ed for within sixty days, when the notes will undoubt
edly command a premium, as has uniformly been the
case on closing the subscriptions to other Louns.
Iu order that citizens of every town section of
tile country muy be offorded facilities for taking the
Loan, the National Banks, State Banks, and Private
Bankers throughout the eouutry have generally a; reed
to receive subscriptions at par. Subscribers will select
their own ugents, iu whom they have confidence, and
who only are to be r capon si l»lg for the delivery of the
note> lor w hich they receive others.

Business—Repairs on the Railroad—Line of
Steamers between Savannah and Jacksonville -
The Negroes—Collision between White and
Black of the Generals.
Jacksonville, May 31, 1865.
7 o the Editor of the Savannah Herald :
But little outward change has taken place
since the termination of the war. The peo
ple come in worn the interior without re
striction, but they have no money that is
worth auylhing here, and their coming adds
but little to the business of thy place.
The work of repairing the gap in the rail
road between hete and Baldwin was com
menced this week, With its now being an
open port, and the facilities for bringing in
the productions of the country from the in
terior, Jacksonville may receive an impetus
in becoming a place of some business impor
Is there to be a line of steamboats put ou
between here and Savannah ? There were
formerly five steamboats running every day
between the two The advantages to
the place were muffial. Will it not be ad
vantagoous for a steamboat to ply weekly
between the two ports, touching at interme
diate points. A large number iu the interior
will go Sortli this summer, aud would pre
fer this route if theie could be auy ceitaiuty
of regular communication.
.The negroes have flocked into the town
during the past week by scores. They came
mostly from this side of the Swanee River.
West of there they liape generally remained
with their former owneis to work on the
plantations for wages.
A little diflicuity occurred at Lake City
while a portion of the 3d U. S. C. T. were
on their way to TkUahassee; the treble was
with some of the men of General M Cook’s
command, who have been sent as guatds to
the trains over the railroads. Order was re
stored before anything serious bad oceurred.
No trouble occurred when they arrived at
General Vodges and Staff, accompanied by
General Scannon went to Tallahassee yester
day. Gen. M'Cook was expeeted to return
to Georgia the first of this week.

The Fike at the Waynesboro Depot.—
Some erroneous accounts of the late fire
which resulted iu the destruction of the
Waynesboro Depot and its contents, liaviug
got abroad, Mr. J. M. Selkirk, Gen’l Agt. C.
R. R. makes the following statement.
The flames buist forth in the vicinity of
the oil room. Nothing was stored in that
room save oil, and that was contained in
metal vats sunk below the level of the floor.
No other combustible matter was ever depos
ited there. The adjoining room held the pro
visions used for the bauds ou the line of the
road. There was turpentine in the Depot,
but not in close proximity to tbe oil room.
The explosions were caused by the brass
pieces, loaded, which were shipped up by
the military authories from Waynesboro, and
by a number of muskets and a hundred pound
box of gunpowder, also forwarded by the
unitary. The depot was closed by the clerk
in charge at 6.30 P. M. He weut through
every portion of it in so doing, and as it was
nearly an hour by suu, no other light was re
quired. A sentry patrols the entire legtb, of
the building inside the yard—another per
forms the same duty outside towards the
street, aud our watchman is stationed iu the
rear. The latter passed down the buiidiug
close by the doors, a few minutes before the
tire broke out.
I have endeavored to collect all the evi
dence I can of tbe probable origin of the fire.
The Corporal of tbe guard ascribes it to
lightning. Mr. Day, watchman, asserts that
be saw the lightning strike, and before he
could recover himself and cross the yard tbe
Jhone broke forth. Mr. McLaughlin states
that be saw tbe lightning strike iu that direc
tion, and that it was immediately followed by
the alarm of lire. And Mr. Derry of the Or
phan Asylum, witnessed the scene from his
street porch. 1 have uo reason to suppose
that the fire was the act ot an incendiary ;
and do not think under tbe circumstances
that it was caused by spontaneous combus

of the Thirteenth Regulars;
Gayoso House, >
Memphis, Tenn., Oct. 4—Midnight. >
Captain C. C. Smith Commanding Battalion
Thir tenth Regulars :
My Dear Friend: —l cannot sleep to
night till I record an expression of the deep
feelings of my heart to you aud to the offi
cers and soldiers of the battalion for their
kind behaviour to my poor child. I realize
that you all feel for my family the attach- )
ment of kindred; and I assure you all of
full reciprocity. Consistent with a sense of
duly to my profession and oflice I could not
leave my post, and sent for my family to
come to me iu that fatal climate, and iu that
sickly period of the year, and behold the
reply ! The ehiUl who bore my name, and
in whose future I reposed with more con
fidence than I did iu my own plaus of life,
now floats a mere corpse, st oking a grave iu
a distant land, with a weeping mother,
brother aud sisters clustered about him.
But, for myself, I can ask. no sympa
thy. On, on I must go till I meet a sol
dier’s fate, or see mj r country rise superior to
all factious, till its flag is adored and res
pected by ourselves aud all the powers of
earth. But my poor Willy was, or thought
lie was, a Sergeant of the Thirteenth. I have
seen his eye brighten and his heart beat as
he beheld the battalion under arms, and ask
ed me if they were uot real soldiers. Child
as he was, lie had the enthusiasm, the pure
love of truth, honor and love of country
which should animate all soldiers. God only
know’s why he should die thus young. He
is dead, but will uot be forgotten till those
who knew him in life have followed him to
that same mysterious end.
Please convey to the battalion my heart
felt thanks, and assure each aud all that if,
in after years, they call ou me or mine, and
mention that they were of the thirteenth
Regulars when poor Willy was a Sergeant,
they will have a key to the affections of my
family that will openjall it has ; that we will
share with them our last blanket, our last
crust. Your friend,

The Assassination—Official Note of
Sympathy. —The following is a translation of
the official note addressed by the Minister of
Foreign Affairs of his Prussian Majesty to
Mr Judd, the Minister of the United States
at Berlin, relative to the murder of Presideut
Lincoln, aud the attempted assassination of
Berlin, April 27, 1865.—The Royal Gov
ernment is deeply grieved by the news re
ceived by the mail yesterday of the murder
of Presideut Lincoln, and the simultaneous
attempt on the life of the Secretary of State,
Iu consequence of the so happily establish
ed frieudly relations between Prussia and the
Uuited States, it falls upon the undersigned
to announce to that Government the sincere
sympathy of the Royal Government in the
heavy bereavement which has bean inflicted
by this crime, and therefore respectfully re
quest Mr. Judd to transmit the expressions
of this sentiment to his Government.

When Jeff Davis parted with his family
after reaching the deck of the Pierce, he
beckoned his son Jeff and . bade the young
hopeful to summon Bob, bis colored body
servant. When Boh made his appearance
Jeff shook him warmly by the band and bade
him good by. In justice to Bob it should be
said that lie did not seera-at all sorry to part
from liis late master. It seemed to cost Mrs.
Jeff but little effort to part from her husband.
As the Pierce was about getting under way,
she leaned over the rail of the Clyde and
called out to her husband, “Jeff'! if they will
allow you, write to me and let me know
what kiud of quaiters you have."

patch to the Philadelphia Press says:
Mrs. It. E. Lee, wife of the late General
Lee, has written to the authorities, claiming
Arlington Heights as her property. She
complains that the grounds have been greatly
abused by our Government, and slates that
she will visit .Washington in a few days for
the purpose of demanding this from Presi
dent Johnson. This matchless and incom
parable piece of impudence will be treated
by the authorities with contempt, as it richly

harvest iu that section commenced to a limi

with the frost ot late, has considerably in

THE FASHIONS OF PARIS.
Mr. Sala sends to the London Illustrated
News the following memoranda, picked up
duriug a four day’s holiday in Paris recently;
To the ladies a few words about the new
est Paris fashions. First, bonnets are worn ;
but there are no longer any bonnets to wear,
only fronts. The falls or curtains have been
sliced away to maike room for a prodigious
display of "back hair.” The crowns have
entirely disappeared to give way to a won
derful airaugement of jewelled daggers, and
arrows, and spears, which seem to be thrust
through the skull, after the curious fashion
which has so loug prevailed among the peas
ant girls of the Italian Tyrol; and the enta
blature, so td speak, of the bonnet (by which
1 mean the architrave of tulle, the frieze of
silk or velvet, and the cornice of artificial
flowers) alone remains. Tin* latest French
bonnet, indeed, is like Hudibras’s story of
the bear and the fiddle—begun and broke off
iu the middle. It is a magnificent but incom
plete work, like Buckle's History of Civili
zation, like the Nelson Monument, like Don
The bonnet is very small. It would just
suit oue of Cremer’s two guinea doffs ; but
what there is is gorgeous I saw one lady on
Monday, with appireutly a gold knife and
fork transfixiug her tresses where the crown
of her chapeau should have been ; another
had Titiau’s bunch of grapes on the top of
her head. Auother wore a bouuet front all
huug with Byzantine and Algerine coins,
which tinkled as she walked, prettily. And
a fourth, on an exquisite elliptical structure,
wore a quantity of soft, green vegetable mat
ter, resembling spinach. It only needed a
lioached egg in the centre to be perfect.—
louuets are rather dear just now ; they are
“riz.” Lucy Hocquet charges 50 francs for
four square inches of milliuery; and Madame
Havard won’t let you look, at anything under
RAQK FOR STEED ORNAMENTS.
Jet ornaments, dear ladies, which have
been all the rage for some time past, are
falliug into disuse. .The ruu is now upou
steel. The quantity of minute mariue stores
worn by the fair ladies of France is astonish
ing. There are steel bonnets; and the Wo
man with Iron Mask may soon rival the mys
terious man of that Ilk. Steel bracelets,
steel necklaces, steel collars, steel decorated
fans, reticules and parasols, steel brooches,
fringes aud tassels, aud trimmings of steel
glitter ou the graceful forms of the giace
lulest ladies in Christendom.
Ater steel comes straw. On ts est pas sur
la paille, mais la paliie est sur tout le tnonde. —
The ladies appear to havejunplaited their old
straw bonnets and stuck them all over their
dresses. A mantle or jacket tessalated with
real straw iu fantastic devices is much pa
tronized, and imitation straw for fringe is be
coming universal. A black lace mantle
thickly seme, or powdered with tiny straw
balls very much resembling pommes de feme
sautees, has attracted considerable attention.
CRINOLINE GOING OUT AT LAST.
Finally, crinoline seems to be really going
oqt, aud the robes a queue, or loug trains, ale
coming in. The latest and artl'ulest plan is
'to have a petticoat iu the same shape as the
lobe, brief in front aud elongated behind;
aud the dress is looped up in front to show
the boots, aud, it is to be presumed, to pre
sumed, to prevent the fair train-wearer Hip
ping herself up every second pace or so.
Artemus Ward on the Drama.—“A,

ignorant people upon his great show. Many
persons declare that his ‘“wax figgers” are
not of a character elevated and refined. He
1 maintain that wax figgers is more eleva

reverse to the contrary. AVliat sort of sense

There's Mrs. Macbeth—she is a nice kind
