Powder Mill explosion. --On the 9th inst., Custis's powder mill at Gretna, opposite New Orleans, was accidentally blown up, and five persons were killed and buried under the ruins. The Bee says: Just as it happened two months ago at the powder mill in the Old Marine Hospital, one explosion took place in the drying room, and a short moment after a second one was heard from another part of the building.

It is said there were 8,000 pounds of gunpowder in the different rooms of the manufactory.

The fire was the work of some incendiary, care having been taken to prevent the flames from the stores reaching its enclosure. The main house was reverenced for its early associations, as being the identical house where Washington first saw and courted the widow Custis, and where he spent a small portion of his married life. Latterly, it had become the theme of discussion in Congress relative to its disposal, and a degree of censure was attempted to be thrown upon General McClellan for protecting it from being converted into a depot for sutlers' stores, and a rendezvous for idle civilians and soldiers to congregate.
