Jeff Davie Captured.
The news has finally reached us, as
we were positive it would, that Jeff.
.Davis .has fallen into our hands.. After
escaping, narrowly however, for some
time the vigilance of ,onr detectives
and soldiers, he has been captured at
*he town of Irwinsville, Georgia. This
town is situated in- Irwin county, in
the southern section of the State, is
seventy-five . or eighty miles south
least from Macon, and is about the
- same.distance from the Atlantic coast
as from the Gulf of Mexico. It is dif
ficult. to presume:whether he was flee
ing to Mexico or toTurope. We sup
poise, however, Europe. But his
fugitive journey is ended ; and his
narreer as a crimintff prisoner has com
menced. To Washington, no .doubt,
he wilt be taken, perhaps secretly.
There,let him await and receive his
, deont--thanging by the neck till dead.
It' is an ignominious fate, we must
-predict; that awaits the guilty man,
eovered in tho crime and writhing in
fie tortures of iniquity, but who can
it will riot be a just one. . In his
Aleath,asthe chief of the once proud but
-now killed confederacy, the Govern
ment will be partially avenged for the
Wrongs committed under his jurisdic

The National Finances.
On the 81st of March last, an offi
cial statement showed the public
debt to be twentyAhreo hundred and
,sixty seven million. Laws in opera-
Alen provided for six hundred million
,more, viz: tIM Seven-thirty loan, now
being so rapidly taken. This is be
lieved to be sufficient, With the ordin

meet'all expenses and seeming liabili

debt at that time, th ereforo; $2,067,000,

What the Emperor Napoleon has done
thus far .in Mexico has been done
without any opposition from this Gov
ernment,without a word of rebuke,
lint rather with a spirit of aequies
fence on our -part—and though such
would probably not have been the
ease had not= our civil war been in
progress, the President will never
theless- actin a perfeotly fair mannor
toward Napoleon now that our hands
itre.free, and meet him, if at all, with
the, honorable weapons of diplomacy.
It maybe doubted, however, wheth
er any immediate attention. will be
given to the subject, outside of forbid
ding buccanneering expeditions from
this country. This, it is felt, must be
done to prevent even the possibility of
su i plearient relations with France, and
at ate tiametime, maintain our neutral
position. Such.aposition Mr Seward de
clared to be ourproper course more than
nyeai since, and it is not likely it will
be departed from even in the winking at

OVER THIRTY MILLIONS ONE DAY!
—On Tuesday last there was received
at the office of Jay Cooke., Subscrip-
tion agentfor the United States 7-80
Loan, the sum of Thirty Million dol

company Loan has ever boon so pop
ular, or made such rapid and over
whelming sales! This most emphat
ically proVes that the Government
Loans far surpass in permanent safety
and security every other loan in
the country. And why should it not:
The Government has shown its ability
to protect itself against Powerful ene
mies, and coming out of the struggle
wholly triumphant, it has shown its
•strength to outlive the most trying
storms of peril and destruction,. At the
rate of $30,000,000 a day, the Loan will
soon be exhausted, and the sooner sub
scriptions' are handed in to the
agents, the better it will be for those
who desire investing in this most pop
ular and reliable Loaii.
Two weeks ago the amount of the
E 0 con d series of the Loan sold and
reported, irxelusive of voucher's con
versions, was about $145,000,000.
The cash dates last week wore about
$40,000,000, this week, $98,000,000.

Yesterday morning the following
telegram, purporting to be from Jay
Cooke, was received by Mr. Greene
baum at his residence:
Henry Greenebaum & Co., Bankers:
Yes, for any amount he may. require:
This was of course a bogus despatch
concocted by -the General. lie had
succeeded in obtaining, by what means
is unknown, ono of the regular enrol
opes of the Office, and the whole trans
action might have appeared plausible
Meanwhile, Mr. Greenebaum had
become satisfied in - his own mind
that the whole thing was a swindle:
He had- discovered that Mr. Ogden
Was not.in the city, and that the sup
posed 'Maj.-Gen: Hancock was 'not his
guest. After leaving the opera on
Friday - night. he•went ••to the central
police,station, for the. purpose of noti.
lying the superintendent, but found
that Capt Turtle and all the detec
tives had left the office.
Ho 'determined, however ; to sift the
mystery to the bottom, and made up
his mind to remain. in the city-all
night forlhat purpose. Had .he car
ried out his intention, there is but
little'doubt but he• would have -suc
ceeded in.eapturing the swindler, but
Mrs. Greenebaum, who became alarm
ed in case her husband might get into
ti•ouble; dissuaded loin. His- purpose
was - to draw the rascal into the Snare
by meeting-him as appointed in the
morning and banding him over the
money,. having ono. : : of our "Hawk
shaWs". seeretedin the bank ready to
pounce upon him, But the scheme .
failed. Mr. Greonebatim did not come
into the city so early as he intended,
and the general, who by: that time
probably began to scent some danger.
in the wind, decamped nor has heleen .
seen 'or heard. of since.
In - Order to facilitate his- swindling
operation, lie managed to impose on'
one of the morning . papers, which on
Saturday morning published in, the
local column an announcement that
Maj. Gen. W. S. Hancock, his wifaand.
two - members . of his staff, had • passed'
through the city on their way. to-':St.

wa.."lnformation was received at

Taylor's forces in Alabama and Mis

markable fact that this news, and oth

were received by telegraph' direct-
from Macon, Ga., to this city. Gener
