I was authorized to order the evacuation of St. Simon's Island, Georgia, and took off ex-slaves, horses, cattle, rice, corn, etc., leaving nothing of value. The splendid mansion once occupied by that ex-U. S. Senator and arch-rebel T. Butler King, is on this island, and we stripped it of every thing. I write this letter on his writing-desk, which, with his piano, were presented to me on my return.--N. Y. World, Jan. 22.
