            DECEMBER 30TH.—A memorial from the army has been presented in both houses of Congress.

            The speech of Mr. Foote, relative to a Dictator, has produced some sensation in the city, and may produce more.

            A great many Jews and speculators are still endeavoring to get out of the country with their gains.

            To-day Mr. Davies paid me $350 more, the whole amount of copyright on the 5000 copies of the first volume of new “Wild Western Scenes,” published by Malsby. He proposes to publish the second volume as soon as he can procure the necessary paper.
