Silver ont Lake Superior. A new and impor

regions of Lake Superior. Hon. Truman &rr.
the distinguished Connecticut Senator, who has
spent most of the past summer at the copper mines,
has riade the discovery, by the agency of an ac
complished metallurgist, recently from Europe,
which ne communicates to tne J. noune under date
of the 19th inst. On his return from the Lakes,
Mr. Smith brought a considerable number of cop
per specimens, to the inspection of which he invit
ed the gentleman referred to, when he immediate! v
pronounced tlie vein stone or matrix adhering, a,
rich ore of silver. : It has been known from the
beginning, that there was more or less of native
silver to be found in the mines. It was at onetime
believed that the quantity would be sufficient to
bear separation, andwould add considerable to the
value of the mines ; but this has turned out falla-

fact-iSblisbed, by exhibition of the silver ex

about 5 o'clock, Mr. Henry Davis, of this city, at
the request of the Cashier of the Exchange Bank,
took in charge a brown leather valise, very much
worn, containing about $14,500 in notes, for the
purpose of conveying it to a Bank in Richmond.
Upon arriving at. the depot, and alighting from his
carriage, he stopped at the steps of the carriage for
the purpose of assisting some ladies. Just at thi.
time, a colored boy stepped up, apparently about
18y ars of age, and remarked in a familiar way,
" Master Henry, let me hold the valise, 'white you
.assist the ladies." Mr. D. not suspecting, handed
the boy the valise, and assisted the ladies from tlie
carriage. He immediately turned around'to re
ceive the valise, but the thief had darted out of his
sight. Up to the time of going to press last bight,
no tidings of the lost money had been heard. I Tiie
notes were from the Branch of the Exchange iBank
at Clarksville, :n this State. It v as y.i after
twilight when the robbery was committed,
and Mr. D. therefore, has no. idea who the boy w as
to whom he handed the valise. Pet. Ex.

Threatened Conflict Between the Creek

v KAjsAs.-j It seems that under the laws of Congress
it becomes the duty of the Marshal of the Western
District bf Arkansas to arrest persons who have in
troducedj spirituous liquors into the Indian country.
This officer having recently so arrested Indians who
had been punished under the Indianjaw for the of
fence in the same cases, the Indian authorities are
very indignant, and there is fear of armed collision
to grow lout of the affair, the Secretary of the
Interior is said to havo directed the Marshal to J
make no more arrests of Indians for this offence who
may havie been held amenable under the Indian
law, untjl he (the Se 'retary) shall have Teceived
full information to tnal-le him to give him further
instructions on the subject.
