FOR LOCAL MATTERS S£E THIRD PAGE.
Charleston and Savannah Railroad —A
Charleston correspondent of the New York
Herald says: This road has suffered tinancially
by the war to the extent of about two hun
dred thousand dollars, which would be the
eost of its recongtiuction. The prospects of
the road, says the writer, are not surpassed
by any road in the State. A branch road of
about forty miles is to be constructed from
Port Royal to a point on the Charleston and
Savannah Railroad at or near Pocotaligo.
Another branch is nearly graded and ready
for the iron, from Augusta, connecting with
the Charleston and Savannah road at the
Salkehatchie. A large amount of this com
pauy’s stock is owned by wealthy capitalists
iu New York, and by J. S. Ryan, Esq., of
Charleston, whose relations to lailroads in
South Carolina are equal to those of the well
known and lamented President Cuyler, of the
Georgia railroads. He will push forward the
work of rebuilding the road with all possible
energy and promptitude.
Another Southern Minister. —The Rev.
Jas. T. Johnson, eminent an clergypian from
the South, late of Alexandria, Va/frp reached
at Trinity Church, New York, on Sunday
morning, 30th ult. The Herald says: It is
more than probable that hereatter no really
Christian pulpit will be closed to the truly
Christian clergyman who may chance to be
here on the Sabbath and desire to preach a
sermon to the people. It is a noteworthy
fact, remarked in connection with the cases
of the three Southern gentlemen who have
already addressed ous people in as many
different churches, that they preached strict
ly doctrinal or scriptural sermons, leaving
politics entirely alone.
Punishment for Disloyal Language. —ln
our Court column will be found the result of
an investigation by Capt. James E. Smith,
Provost Marshal of this Sub-District, of
charges brought against J. D. Howell and J.
S. Short. The complaints grew out of lan
guage used at the Pulaski House, on Friday
afternoon, which w'>is both disloyal and per
sonally offensive to Capt. Geo. B. Hussey,
159th New York Volunteers, who promptly
and very effectually resented the insult on
the spot. We have forborne making any
statement of the affair until we could publish
the result ot the official investigation.
Robberies at Cape May —The Philadel
phia Bulletin of the Ist inst. says: We learn
that yesterday, at the bathing hour at Cape
May, eavy robberies were perpetra
ted, and the thieves escaped. It is laid a
boarder at Congress Hall lost $3,000 in mon
ey and jewelry. Col Fentin, proprietor of
the Cottage by the Sea, was robbed of SI,OOO

Island, was robbed of $1,700. The perpe
trators of these robberies cut the telegraph
wires and made their escape from the Is

and is liable to be imprisoned or otherwise
punished. Paroled men in Lynchburg are

Florence Nightingale has written a letter
to the New York Commissioners of Emigra
tion, acknowledging with thanks the recep
tion of their annual report, expressing grati
tude for the work they are accomplishing in
behalf of the European emigrant, and pre
dictiug a larger accession to our populatiou
from abroad, now that peace is restored in
tbe Ujiited States.
Supposed Capturk of John H. Surratt.
A%espatck says a man supposed to be John
H. Surratt, oue of the conspirators in the
plot which resulted iu the murder of Presi
dent Lincoln, passed through Harrisburg,
Pa., on Tuesday last, strongly guarded, en
route for Washington. It is said lie was cap
tured in Texas.
The Richmond Election.— The Richmond
papers state there are reports that anew
election is about to be ordered, but there is
nothing authentic about it. The Whig has
a long editorial urging that Ihe officers elect
ed should be permitted to exercise their
functions, and that no hostility to the gov
ernment is intended.
The New York Journal of Commerce learns
from the Commissioners of Emigration that
numerous applications for laboring men are
received from all parts of the South. The
great want is a supply of farm hands, to take
the place of negroes who have run away or
are indisposed to work.
Pardons Granted.— One hundred and two
citizens of Virginia were pardoned on Tues
day last, on the recommendation of Gover
nor Pierpont, and over three hundred other
applications were received at the Attorney
Gen. Cox, the Republican nominee for
Governor of Ohio, has written a letter in
which he unequivocally combats negro suf
frage and negro equality.
Health of President Johnson.
A Washington dispatch in the New York
Herald dated on the Ist inst. says: The public
hope and expectation concerning the Presi
dent's health have not been verified. No
Cabinet meetiqg was held to-day, in conse
quence of his continued indisposition. He
is still confined to his room, and no visitors
have been received since Saturday. Mr.
Johnson has suffered from billious attacks
for years at irregular intervals, and the pre
sent, we are glad to announce, presents no
new or alarming features.

Starvation among the Indians.
, Cairo, July 30, 1805.
The Magenta has arrived with New Oi
leans dates to the 25th, the Seventh Minne
sota and a portion of the Sixth Minnesota
Infantry, and the Second Massachusetts Bat
tery. The major portion of the Sixth Min
nesota previously arrived on another steamer.
The story that" Gen. Kirby Smith was taken
prisoner with his forty companions, by the
Mexican Government, turns out to be untrue.
The New Orleans Times’ Brownsville cor
respondent, who received the information
from one ot Cortinas’s staff, says *• I now
learn that a yauim man, who was formerly
aid-de-camp on Alagruder’s staff, has just ar
rived at Matamoras from Monterey, and that
lie pronounces the whole story a canard.
He said the party had no artillery, rifles or
train ; that they were unmolested by Fed
eral or Mexican authority, and that they ar
rived at Monterey in safety. He also says
Kirby Smith was hard up for money,and was
compelled to borrow S3OO from a gentleman
named Preston at Monterey. After a few
days rest, Gen. Smith and his party pushed
on for the City of Mexico.
The famous Foreign Legion, commanded
by Baron Barney O’Brien, a French-Irish
soldier of fortune, left Matamoro9 a few days
since for Tampico. There are now no
foreign troops at Matamoros. The garrison
consists of about 3,000 inefficient Mexicans.
The Fi>nck troops at Matamoros have
been removed to Monterey on account of
the great mortality which existed among
them at the former place, the deaths amount
ing to sixteen or seventeen per day.
The Times learns from a private letter of
the 21st instant that the Tremont House and
a large portion of the city of Galveston had
been burned. So great was the conflagra
tion it became necessary to call upon tbe
military for assistance. By their efforts it
was Anally extinguished.
Late intelligence from Texas states that
Col. W. B. Lowery, late of the Confederate
States, charged with assisting in pulling
down the United States flag at Millican re
cently, was undergoing a trial at Houston.
The Telegraph hopes the court will show
clemency to the accused.

The Telegraph of the 20th says:
Information has reached us that three men,
Germans, on the way Irorn Fredericksburg
to Castraville, each with a wagon loaded
with flour, were attacked and killed by tbe
Indians, somewhere below Bonovas. There
is also news that the Indians have come into
the country as near as within some six or
eight miles of the Medina river, west ot here,
and that a party of eleven men, headed by
Mr. Burleson, attacked a larger party of In

Important Arrest. —Officer Charles Guy
arrested and placed in the custody of New
York detectives, last Friday night, Julius C.
Dickey, ot New York, formerly a resident
of Sandy Hill, who is charged with having
defrauded the government to the amount of
eighty or a hundred thousand dollars. Mr.
Dickey was immediately taken to New York-
It is proper to state, says the Sandy Hill
Herald, that the friends of Mr. Dickey claim
that no fraud has been pei petrated, that he
only failed to meet obligations at maturity,
aud that, at the time ot his arrest, lie was
prepared to cancel all claims. We hope this
is correct, as Mr. Dickey has always main
tained an irreproachable reputation.—Alba

Indian Affairs. —The Commissioner of
Indian affairs has issued an important circu
lar-letter to superintendents of Indian affairs
and Indian agents, bearing upon the diffi
culties that have lately arisen between su
perintendents aud agents of that bureau and
the military authorities near the reservations
and the agencies. They are instructed to
subordinate their action and intercourse with
the tribes iu hostility to the government to
the policy and operations of the War De
partment, and not to deliver goods, money
or other property to any Indian nation, tribe
or band while they are in hostility to the
government; to be especially vigilant that no
trader under their supervision has any trade or
intercourse with any member of such disaf
fected tribe or band, under penalty of revo
cation of his license and expulsion from
within their jurisdiction; and to suspend all
intercourse with such Indians, except so far
as the same may be sanctioned by the mili
tary officers in charge of operations against
them. They are further instructed to impart
no information to the public upon the subject
of Indian affairs, and to request the assistance
and co-operation of the military authorities
where difficulties arise in enforcing the civil
Dolicy of the government toward Indians at
peace with the United States, and are order
ed to make a full and explicit monthly re-
Sort to the Indian Office of the condition of
le tribe or tribes under their charge, with
such suggestions as they may deem benefi
cial to them.

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL.
Mew York Money Market.
Wednesday, August 2.—The gold market has t>een
very Arm, auu tbe indications are in favor of a rise,
notwithstanding constant sales by the Treasury.—
The impression has become settled that while a mul
titude of contingencies may occur to advance the
premium, none can at present depress it. The de
cline of tlve-twenties abroad to 71' 4 s>.?i, and the
diminished activity in theijn is looked upon as pre
cursory or tlie resumption of gold exports, for which
these securities have tor some time past been a
transient substitute. The opening price yesterday
was from which it advanced to 145 )» by four V.
M., and closed at 145. The short crop of winter
wheat, estimated to be forty millions of bushels or
more under that of last year, is giving strength to the
market in the absence of an export demand.
Foreign exchange is extremely dull, and bankers’
sterling at sixtv days has sold at 108>*. The market,
may be considered as having about touched bottom,
and higher rates will, no doubt, be current during
the next month.
The market lor Money continues active at 7 V cent,
The week’s exports, from this port, of domestic
produce and miscellaneous goods, have been to the
value of $1,781,971 against $8,9226,012 same week last

Place of Confinement of the Assassins
of President Lincoln. —The government
steamer Florida, which carried the as

on the Dry Tortugas,' as announced by
us in a despatch from Hilton Head re
cently, arrived at New York on Tuesday
last from that place on the 26th ult., and
from Key West on the 27th. Mudd,
O’Laughlin and Arnold, as will be recollect
ed, were sentenced to imprisonment for life
and Spangler for six years. The Herald
says the prisoners were not aware until after
starting on their journey that their destina
tion had been changed from the Albany
Penitentiary to this ard spot, off the south
ern coast of Florida, and, on being informed
of it, were unpleasantly affected; but after
their arrival, on finding that the island, which
is about thirteen acres in extent, enjoys a
fine sea breeze anefis very healthy, was not
so bad a place as they had supposed, they
were agreeably disappointed, and congratu
lated themselves on the change. They
reached their place of imprisonment on the
25th of July, and were immediately after put
to appropriate service—Mudd being placed
in the position of au assistant surgeon, Ar
nold that of a clerk, Spangler set to work at
his trade of a carpenter, and O’Laughlin put
