Fire in Dinwiddie county. --The Petersburg Express, of the 22d inst., learns that a new frame barn on the promises of Dr. R. M. Anderson, of Dinwiddie county, about fourteen or fifteen miles from this city, was destroyed by fire on Wednesday last, and 8,000 pounds of tobacco, together with the tobacco screws, were consumed with it. Some of the Doctors negroes had been at work in the building, and had left it to get their dinner, without the precaution to shut the door when they went out.

The hogs were also burned. The barn was valued at $200.

The subjugation of the Tennessee rebels has only just commenced, and no one here has the least idea of the condition of the finances of that State; it can hardly fall, in any event, to come out of the war crippled, ravaged, and with credit and resources gravely impaired. Yet there are not wanting buyers of its securities at cents on the dollar. Missouri, perhaps, occupies a better position, as the war will probably render her a free State. But Missouri sixes have already risen 14 per cent. There is no reason to suppose that the interest on them will be paid for some time, and the first act of the State Government, after the war, will probably be to
