President John son, April 21. lfrG5. " Notes of Third Series of ?30s now ready. The demand for the Second Series of the 7-o0 Notes was so great that the Treasury Ierartuient was unable to j.riut them with sufficient rapidity to fill the orders. It will be remembered that a hundred millions were subscribed aud paid for in a single week. The printing presses have finally suruiounted the diffi rulty, and on Wednesday, J uuc . 7th, the deliveries of the Third Scries commenced aud will be continued with the same promptness that marked the supply of the notes, of the first aud second series. It has been this iutcrruption of delivery at the time of subscription which ' has given au appearance of falling off in the popular taking of the loan, the great body of small takers being unwilling to pay their money unless they receive their notes right in hand, to carry them home. It is expected that after this week the daily subscriptions to the Seven-Thirties will run up iuto millions, as they will uu- doubtly be stimulated by the opening of the farmers' wool markets East aud West. It is not at all likely that the Government will ever again offer so desirable a secu rity as these notes, and about two hundred millions only remain to be taken. With the close of the war the national expenses will be vastly reduced, and in vestors must look for a sharp reduction :n the rate of interest as soon as the pres ent loans become due and can be paid off. There is no reason why the United States credit for Money should ever again fall below its credit for eouraje. The same t-pirit that preserved the geographical in tegrity of the country will place its pe cuniary integrity on a par with that ol the most favored nations und that will represent a rate of interest under rather than over four per cent.

It is well known that the Legislature has denied the right of suffrage, for the present, to men of color. The Senate, by a large majority, has now passed another suffrage bill of a novel character. It confines the right of voting to those white men, otherwise qualified, who are "publicly known to have entertained unconditional Union scutimcnts from the breaking out ol the rebellion until the present time.'' Provisions arc made for proving tho fact of loyalty beyond question. All other persona are excluded for six years after the passage of the act, and may then be readmitted to franchise by petition to the Circuit or Chancery Court, on proof of loyalty to the United States, in open court, upon testimony of two or more good loyal citizens. . If the loyal citizens of North Carolina for instance, wi'l take such action as this and inflexibly aply it at the polls, the peo ple would be better reconciled to the with holding of suffrago from the negro, be cause there would then be a better chance of ending-that crass legislation which was the the offspring of slavery and is still our greatest (lunger. Hut there is a more excellent way" yet, and that is both to disfranchise the disloyal men so long as he remains so, and enfranchise the the loyal man without any recard to color. That is safe, that is right, that the principle of our institutions, that the point to which, in the order of a wonderful Providence, we have been brought, and we ought to evade it. One thing is very ckitr to our minds. No State can be safely recognized in the South which excludes colored men from the suffrage. It may, under mili tary duress, have the forms of govern ment, as in Louisiana ; but few now wish this humiliating spectacle repeated. It will be much more likely to demonstrate tho impotency of the white Union men to control, as in the election just held iu Virginia. The ' alternative of gov ernments in which colored men partici pate or no government at all by the peo ple, will soon be made apparent, and per haps in view of it politicians may be compelled to do justice which other eon-: sidcrations have failed to grtin at their hands, ':: General Graut in Patterson. On Wednesday last, at noon, quite a number of our Citizens were favored with a view of the illustrious Grant. Tie passed eastward on the train accoin panicd by Mrs. Grant, Col. Parker (a famous Iudiaa warrior, chief of seven Western tribes of Indians, and chief, also, of scouts on Gen. Grant's staff.) Colonel Dowers, Col. Babcock and Mr. Dcckwith. The report of his coining was circulat ed aud a crowd gathered. Had it been positively known, there would have been an immense assemblage. ' The General came out on the veranda of the rear car to give the people an opportunity to see him. Immediately th crowd began cheering for Gen. Grant, and cxpressiue to each other their gratification at having seen the man who whipped the traitor Lee, and the great soldier who has made the name of his country forever immor tal iu history. . We looked around for the chaps who bawled at Train, but they were orderly or absent. They are cither lowly learning sense or are well cooled off by the drubbing given to their friends McClclIan and Lee. A t all event they knew their places this time. Gen. Graut makes no speeches. He docs not appear to know his fame. The whole appearance of the man, as he ' pre sented himself to our observation, was that of rigid plainness. His countenance denotes deep thought, truthfulness and determination, without a single trace of ambition visible in its expression. lie iuokcu to us iikc a man wno baa ever pressing on him some stern duty, some labor which engaged the attention of all his energies'. About his Derson there is nothing which the world would recog nize as distinguished. . He neither bears hiuiielf with or conducts himself towards others, with that superiorly so peculiar to men of rank, and which he of all oth er men to-day in this country would have a just right to feel.

In a letter from this arch tra:toi ad dressed to a Democratic Comniitte ' of Lancaster, V.i., he speaks as follows 0 the present couditiuu of tho Dcuiocatio part?. . ; "Without more of courage, more Igor more audacity, if you please in grapling with great questions as in former prs, the democratic party cannot, ought not to survive, and must give way to a yorager and more vital organization. If it is to remain in its present comatose sttei now tho beginning of a new eph in public affairs, it were better that it Wild be buried out of sight at once." , As Vallandigham says, so let all the people respond. Let the rottonr treasona ble Democracy of tho last four years "le buried out of sight !" It is "dead and stinketh," and who desires any longer to smell its putrid rpmains ? . John Mitchell has eome to grief in New York. Gen. Dix put a quietus on this imported traitor's ptn, and it is not likely that Mitchell will have an op- ortunny to disgust loyal men or dclisrit Democratic friends by an exhibition of his hatred for a government which saved his neck from an English halter. Crime will not have received its just duo until all such men as Mitchell have been sum marily dealt with. Our Government should offer to exchange Mitchell with England, for some of the rascals who have taken refuge in that land from jus tice in this country. The exchange would be perfectly fair. liar The Democratic papers in this md other states are claiming the majorities given by the main aid ot rebel Wp in 1 the recent election in Virginia, as -g!o- nous Democratic victories."

Geld and Silver .Vines of Nevada. During the past year additional discov coveries of gold and silver have been made in the region flanking, on the east ward, the mountain ranges of the Sierra Nevada, which renders it probable that Nevada, with its immcasc treasures of pre cious metals, is destined to exert an influ ence hitherto having no parclle! in the history of States. Of this legion, Bishop Simpson, of Philadelphia, says, in a discourse deliver ed in Music Hall, in the city of New York, a few days since, while speaking of his late visit to Nevada : "That wealth comprises that which the nations of the world have never yet con tended for. Were the debt ot our na tion to amount to 20,000,000,000 of dol lars, there is wealth enough there, when the debt is paid off, to give every who re turns from our battle-fields, muskets of silver in place of iron ; and when our iron clads come back into the harbor, j there shall be silver enough left to plate tnoso boats more heavily than they arc dow plated with iron. I do not speak from idle speculation, but I speak of 'hat wealth from observation and actual calculation. When in California I visit ed the mines, and I thought the time might como when they would be exhaust cd, but in the mines of Nevada there are no sucn indications visible. Xne more the mines arc worked the richer they yield. The extent of the ledges, contain ing the precious metals, no man has yet been able to measure.

Letter from Fortress Monroe. Fortress Monroe, June 9th 1SG5. j Friends in Juniata, After a silence of upwards of tw years, I again, resort to the pen to iuform you, concerning things in and around this place Well I suppose the first thing you want to know, it concerning the welfare of Jeff Davis, fomcrly President ot the would-be Southern Confederacy. We have him here safe enough; notwithstanding, the papers have him in Washington, and had him in before he was in. But I dispute that for I came off that guard this morn ing, ne and C. C. Clay were brought in on the 22nd of May, and placed iu separate casemates, where chances of es cape are not Iikc angels visits, "few and far between," for they are none at all. I will tell you how they are . caged and guarded and let you judge for yourselves, whether they have any chance to escape in any way whatever.- Their prisons arc casemates (arched rooms running through the walls from the inside to the outside of the fort), built of stone, brick and ce ment, and has a heavy stone wall dividing the casemates into two' apartments with iron grated doors, locked. The front or inside has two windows with : iron bars over, and a heavy door locked. The rear or outside of the walls has nothing but a port hole for a casemate howkzer,' with iron bar3 in it too. The floor is of brick wi:h a board floor on top. The room is about ten feet high, and the ' walls about twenty-five outside. The wall is a moat about eighty or ninety feet wide, and from eight to twelve feet deep with water, which rises aud falls with the tide. That is the prison. Now for the guard. There is a special guard of two officers of the guard, one sergeant of the guard, four corporals and seventy-two privates, inde- pendent of the main guard for the fort and water battery, and mount with knap sacks packed, canteens and haversacks on, undress uniform. Four guards are put outside of tie moat to allow no one to con gregate orj look with glasses or make signs or signals, four sentinels on top of the ramparts and parapets, four in front of the casemates, four about fifty feet out around the casemates to r.llow no one to come near, two and an ofacer of the guard in the first part of the casemate and two in the back part with Jeff. The Fame with Clay. When relief time comes, the officer of the day relieves the guard in side the casemates, and keeps the keys. At first the officer of the guard stayed in the whole twenty-four hours without re lief, but now four are detailed and reliev ed every six hours. The guards are not allowed to talk to Jeff. A casemate to the right and one to the left and one be tween the prisoners is occupied by the guards when they are off of post. The rooms aro nice and hare thade trees in front of them. No one but Gen. Miles, Gen. Ord and General llaileck has per mission to cuter the fort now without a pass from Gen. Miles, who has charge of the prisoners, aud whose duty it is to see that he is properly guarded, not even a Major General can pass without a pass. Wc stopped Howard, Srlioficld and others. Persons inside the garrison can pas in and out, and Jeff and Clay's families arc not allowed to enter. Jeffs baggage was one hand trunk, which was taken c.tre of ly live assistant Adjutant General for examination. One of the men who helped to bring oB the trunk, heard Mrs. Davis say she "didnt want to go south, she had uo place lo go and noth ing to on live and would starve. She want ed to go North." She had four children two girls and two boys. Ouc of the boys is cailcd Jeff. Old Jed's a little uneasy uow. The sentry walking on the floor dis turbs him. Hi sai 1 to tho oJwer of the guard " Your men at Andersonvillc got bad treatment. I believe they could not eat the corn bread. It did not agtce with them, give them Durhoua, &c," as if he only found it out a lhrt time ago and was surprised to hear it. lie said it in such au innocent S;iv. Conimi-nt ein ihU V - " - I leave with you about how they were treated. I see some of the boys have buttons they cut oil of - his coat while asleep. Wo have five fifteen inch smooth bore guns mounted ou the ramparts, each of which throws a round uall of" four hun dred and thirty to four hundred anJ thirty-five pounds as to density of metal. The Liueoln guu is one. They are now mounting a class of thirteen inch "una, eleven or twelve of them. Tho I'uion un is still mounted ou the beach outside of the tort- It is a thirteen inch rifle. There are nbout one hundred aud sixty guns, mounted on the terraplein or ram parti, besides about eighteen mortars. The water battery consists of forty-two forty two pounders which i outside the fort. There are being shipped to this place a lot of old guns from Richmond and some odd hioking ones anion:? them. Travel between llichmond aud the Xorth is brisk, every boat is loaded with ladies and gentlemen going to see friends and curiosities. They carry to the North all sorts of momentocs. The trip from Dal- more here is made in one night, from here iu the day time, thus affording an apportunity to see the sights along the river. The fare from Baltimore to llich mond is S7 or $7,50 to here about $3,50. The boats are of the first class and two or three lines running thremrh. As my letter is already Ions I will close. S. L. McALISTEK. IST The opposition papers, says the Lebanon Courier, are now greatly agitated about the Union party bciug broken up by internal dissensions. We recollect that they were similarly distressed last fall, and made similiar representations, but the election showed the truthfulness of their statcnic nt by running up something like half a million majority for the Unionists. As the gicat head of tnq Democratic par ty is now ia immincut danger of having his neck dislocated, and as the body of the party is now about caving in from galloping consumption, we suggest that a decent respect for public sentiment should induce these Copperhead editors to dry ap. . B"th England and France appear to fell considerable uneasiness concerning the disposition toward them of the Amer ican Government, aud the American peo ple. The language of the two govern ments is anything but defiant. Both arc now paying u? more compliments during one month than they have done during the whole four years of the war. Both represent their relations to the Govern ment of the United States as most ami cable, but endeavor in vain to calm tho apprehensions of the public.
