Mutilated letters. --A well known firm in this city received yesterday several letters which bear unmistakable marks of hard usage. Some of them appeared to have been cut with a knife; others are so much defaced as to be almost illegible. In one instance the most important information had been torn off. The letters were mailed in England and France, and were dated May 18th. They should have been received ten days ago. Although directed to the care of Adams' Express Company, it appeare that the misions of Lincoln overhaulted them. So unskillfully, however, was the frand committed that the letters themselves furnish convincing proof of the post-office depredations of Lincoln's subordinates. Other letters over due to the same firm are, doubtless, retained for future revision.--Charleston Mercury.
