"The Finest country in the World." --General Shelby, late of the Confederate army, writes from Mexico as follows: Cordova, Mexico October, 1865. My Dear. M.--General P. and the balance of us returned yesterday from a three days four over the Valley of Cordova. Let me say to you I was raised in the best part of Kentucky, lived in the best part of Missouri, and I tell you honestly it is the best country I have ever seen.

I shall, on to-morrow, select a portion to locate upon, and go to work.

Thayer, United States Consul at Trieste, dated November 13, 1865, in which he states that the Central Sanitary Commission of that city had voted to report it as their unanimous opinion that the disease did not exist in an epidemic form. Mr. Thayer states that, since the 23d of October, although the number of cases have increased, they do not average three per day, and that no fears need be entertained that the cholera will be introduced into the United States from Trieste.
[Correspondence of the Louisville Journal.] East Tennessee--its condition and Prospects. Knoxville, Tennessee, November 30, 1865. --I came to this place a day or two ago, believing that the reports of East Tennessee lawlessness, of which many papers say so much, were true, and that I should be necessitated to see at least a half-dozen grey-haired rebels butchered by the young loyalists of this part of the State. In fact, I thought at least, in order to preserve my own life, to wear my brass buttons and shoulder-straps. When I arrived at Knoxville I expected to have been met by a parcel of loyal ruffians, and to have been compelled to show my passport, countersigned by Governor Brownlow and approved by Andy Johnson. In this expectation I was disappointed. The truth is, I was rather chagrined at the careless treatment shown me. I did not see loaded pistols, nor did I hear of a dozen or two murders, as I did when I arrived at Nashville. Nobody attempted to steal my pocket-

From Washington. Washington, December 13. --The select committee of one member from each State to consider what token of respect and affection Congress may adopt to express the deep sensibility of the nation at the decease of Abraham Lincoln, decided to-day to set apart the 12th day of February (Mr. Lincoln's birth-day) for Mr. Stanton to pronounce an eulogy upon his life and character in the presence of both Houses. Congress came to no determination as to the amount to appropriate to the family of the deceased. It is probable that one hundred thousand dollars will be appropriated. The House Committee on Elections to day took up the case of Cofroth and Koontz, but came to no determination. General Butler has arrived here, and is preparing his reply to General Grant.
