Large Elephant of Nitre.

--We learn, says the Knoxville Register, that on Saturday last Capt. T. J. Finnis shipped from Knoxville, Jonesboro', and Zollicoffer, fifty two thousand six hundred and seventy five barrels of nitre. When Capt. Finn's was appointed to this district it was a forlorn hope. Yet by his energy and fact he has made it abundantly productive. The may now will be ranked at second in importance to none in the public defence. But for the establishment of the Nitre and Mining Bureau we would not now be able to hold the field against our remorseless foe, for the want of powder and lead.
