From Brazil. --Brazil news is to the 2d instant from Rio Janeiro, by the steamer North America, which arrived yesterday. There had been no further fighting, but the Brazilian army was suffering much from sickness. The scheme of emigration from our late rebel States was being pushed forward. The agents of the affair had selected a site for a town near Araguaia, in the Province of San Paulo, near the Rio Tete, an important affluent of the Parana. We judge this location to be about four hundred miles west of Rio Janeiro. A tract of eight million acres of unoccupied public land had been selected, and the rush of Confederates was expected to begin forthwith. The location seems to be just under the tropic of Capricorn, corresponding to the latitude of Cuba. The birthday of the Emperor was fitly celebrated on the day the steamer left, on which occasion the Emperor released a number of prisoners. The Brazilian fleet was still at Corrientes, on the Parana.
Dakotah Territory. --Both branches of the Legislature of Dakotah Territory were organized on the 5th instant by the election of George Stickney, of Union county, as President of the Council, and G. B. Bigelow, of Clay, as Speaker of the House of Representatives. The oath was administered to the members of the House by Hon. J. P. Kidder. The message of Governor Edmunds was delivered.
Mysterious disappearance in Baltimore of a Virginia merchant. --On the 13th instant, Mr. John P. Bledsoe, merchant, of Staunton, Va., registered at the Malthy House, having in his possession a large amount of money, intended for the purchase of goods, since which time nothing has been seen or heard of him. His partner in business, Mr. C. B. Wood, is now in this city endeavoring to learn something of him, but thus far without avail. His bed was not disturbed at the Malthy, and his baggage still remains there. There are speculations of course as to his disappearance, one of which is that he has been made away with for the money which is known to have been on his person.--Sun.
