Too bad.

--The arrival at Jeddo, of the Japanese, has been noticed. A letter describing the disembarkation, says:

‘ I am sorry to say that there was a mysterious disappearance of spoons, forks, blankets, &c., belonging to Uncle Sam, which were used by the Embassy. Everything that was not screwed fast seems to have been taken. Let it go. After spending nearly a million of dollars on them, I suppose they think it no harm to take everything that is left. It is rumored that a number of presents are being prepared for some of our officers; but I imagine from what has already come off in the eating line, they will not amount to much.
