Death from snake Bite.

--A correspondent of the Wilmington (N. C.) Journal, of the 14th inst., writing from Rockfish, Duplin county, says that on Saturday evening last while maddying the water in a small pond for fish, Mr. Franklin J. Dempsey was bitten by a snake and died in about 40 hours afterwards.

A sporting man named Matcus Cicero Stanley was arrested in New York on Wednesday night, by the order of Secretary Seward, on a charge of treason. He was sent to Fort Lafayatte.

Mr. Scott Jones, a member of Col. Ashby's cavalry, was shot on Monday week, says the Charlestown (Va.) Free Press, by one of the Federal plunderers at Harper's Ferry. He will recover.

Lucifer matches are now being made in Charleston, S. C.
