A Claimant for Monticello.

--This well known property, famous as the pet of the author of the Declaration of Independence, afterwards the property of Capt. Urish P. Levy, U. S. Navy, has, as our readers are aware, been sequestered by the Confederate Government as the property of an alien enemy. Since the decree was entered, at least one loyal resident of the Confederacy, a relative of Levy, has petitioned Congress to allot the property to him. The last Yankee flag of truce boat brought a foreigner, named Levy, to City Point, whose business had he been permitted to land, was also to prefer a claim to said property. The agent of the Confederate Government had been instructed not to permitted Levy to come ashore, and the boat carried him back.
