Mr. Marcus Gaines, a well-known citizen of Petersburg of former days, but who has been absent since 1849, has been heard from within the last two or three days, after a silence of some years. Mr. Gaines was appointed United States Consul, under Polk's administration, to Tripoli. He was retained in this official capacity through the succeeding administrations down to that of the late President Lincoln, when he was either relieved or resigned. He is at present holding the position of electrician on the sub-marine telegraph line between Malta and Alexandria.--Petersburg Express.
