We found Mrs. Julia Butler at Mrs. Sims's, straight from Washington, with letters for us, and plenty of news. I feel anxious to get back now,going to be such a center of interest.

C., died on the 9th inst. of grief, having heard the day before of the death of her son in battle.

The Sub-Treasury of this city received to-day a special deposit of $238,000, which is not likely to be claimed in a hurry. It seems that when New Orleans fell it was discovered that the rebel Government had a sum of nearly a quarter of a million to its credit in the banks of that city. This sum Gen. Butler claimed on behalf of the United States, and by a little gentle pressure succeeded in persuading the banks to draw for it on their correspondent banks in this city. The drafts were paid this morning. The deposit was made, we believe, in the name of the "so called Confederate Governme
