leman, to-day, offer gold for People's Bank notes, asking but four cents premium for the gold. The holder of the bills refused the offer. The branch of the Bank of Kentucky, at this place, was taken possession of to-day by the military authorities, and the keys to the vaults delivered over. There is a great scarcity of news, though from the extensive preparations going on, the most exciting times are not very far ahead. We had another severe fire last night. The brick residence of Mrs. Adams, on Nashville street was destroyed by fire. A negro woman belonging to Mrs. A. set the house and stable on fire. She confessed to the crime, and has been lodged in jail. An Unlucky Captain. The Savannah Republican, of the 14th, says: The Lincoln steamer Union, which was wrecked on the coast of North Carolina, whilst on her way to murder and plunder the people of the South, it seems, was commanded by Captain Garvin, the well known commander for many years of the steamship
