Prominent citizens of New York have just made a magnificent present to Gen. Grant, as a token of their appreciation of his national services. A brief allusion of the fact appeared in the Evening Tost a day or two ago.  The gift was nominally a hundred thousand dpllars, but it amounted to one hundred and five thousand, and was conveyed to Gen. Grant without ceremony, by means of a letter containing a list of the subscriptions and an account of the expenditure of apart of the money for his benefit.;  The amount of cash placed in his hands , was $19,000, and; jthere were §55,000 in United States seven-thirty bonds.  It will not be. improper to state that the movement, which resulted so creditable to our citizens, arose from a proposition to cancel a mortgage which Gen. "Grant and Mrs. Grant executed on their house in Washington. It was the property that previously belonged to Stephen A. Douglas. The fact that the mortgage was given came incidentally; to the knowledge of the originator of the plan;'and when the sublect was mentioned-, the object  ; was so heartily approved that -more jthan the sum required was almost immediately offered.  Gen. Butterfield "made the collections, and the amount soon became more than a hundred thousand dollars.' The mortgage bond was cancelled, and Gen, Grant has the remainder,of the contributions-^—nearly thrice the sum that was at first proposed to be raised.  The folio wing is the correspondence: : ;  letter to gen. grant,  | New York, Feb. 15, .1866. "Lieut. Genl U. S. Grant, ¿fc.:.  4  '  general-4-In ,accordance with the request of many citizens of New York, whose names, are herewith-transmitted; I have the;honor to ask your acceptance of the enclosed testimonial of their appreciation of your services.

C., Feb. 17, 1866. /  .Dear Gen.—Your letter of the 15th iost., enclosing me the very handsome testimonial of the citizens of New York, with names of all the too generous contributors to it, is received. I feel at a loss to know how to express my appreciation of the substantial token of friendship of the citizens named in your letter; and for the generosity of the citizens of New York generally, especially toward those who they conceive have rendered service in maintaining, the integrity of the whole Union. Suffice it to say : that I shall always appreciate their generosity toward me^ and endeavor to pursue a course through life, and to make such use of the means thus unexpectedly placed in my possession as will meet with their approval.  •Through you I wish to thank the gentlemen whose names you ha-ve enclosed to me, individually and collectively.  " I have the honor to be your obedient servant r . , .'\/U. 'GRANT,. ;'  I ^ Lieutenant General.  though  being so utterly abandoned, as Mr. Hepwortli did when he said, "For a Vice President we chose a man remarkable for his hatred to the North, in order to smooth down the prejudices of the South—a man born beneath the blighting shadows of slavery, who never dared to say, or dared to think even that slavery was wrong.-— We knew this when we cast our ballots for him !" A more shameless avowal of want of principle has rarely been made. But inasmuch as we know the remark concerning the President's views on slavery is untrue, it may be that the damaging charge against the Republican party is untrue also. Mr. Hepwurth, too, in his willingness to say harsh things against the President, commits himself by talking stupid nonsense like this: '-In it" (the speech) "Mr. Johnson spoke of assassination.. You are in no danger, Mr. President, it is only the good and the great who die ; you will live forever." The sarcasm is lost and fails hurtless in the gross absurdity—to say nothing of its want of truth — of the remark.  R,e'v. Mr. Warren, of the Melodeon, didn't like the speech because it was not dignified ¡and elevated.in tone nor in good taste.

The evidence goes toj show that, on Thursday night he dragged a negro girl, named Anna Towles, who was a servant in the employ of Gen. Donelson, to the race gtj-ound, and there brutally murdered her. The bqdy was.found in Ihe bend;near the track, with the skull terribly fractured. The accused was remanded to jail under a charge of murder in the ferst degree. .  A fire occurred at 5 a. m. on Church street, near the Chattanooga depot, destroying a building occupied by Lieut. Wilson, Quartermaster, and by the Quartermaster of the Military road. Lieu. Wilson's books and papers were a total loss; the damages, otherwise, slight; about $500.  Maj| Gen. B. F. Cheatham, late of the C. S. A.,i will, on Thursday next, wed Miss Robertson, a wealthy lady of Davidson county.  New York, March 6.  The statement is in general circulation and published in the eveni-ng papers here, that the President has ordered the discharge of the pirate iSemmes. Counter to this the Navy Department, by whose authority he was arrested and is held, has no information on the subject beyond the general rumor, and discredits its truth. It is certain that a strong pressure has been brought to bear upon the President, and that h^ has not declined to interpose his Executive authority.  The jNaval Committee have received a com :  municition from Admiral Porter, insisting that our ircin clad vessels.should be taken out of the water when not in use for the piurpose of preservation. This necessity was urged by an official bc^ard as early as; 1862, and is of interest in settling the vexed question as to the relative merits of°salt or fresh water in which' to lay up iron clad vessels.  The Bankrupt Bill,,—Of the bill' now before Congress, pi'oviding for a national bankrupt system, ihe National Intelligencer says:  This bill was introduced in the House in the last Congress by Mr. Jenkes, of Rhode Island, and, i pon his motion, was referred to a select committee,--which committee was again consti-  The bill massed  longed to and betrayed every'party—-who were, so short a time ago, filled with huge delight as they went round relating "Abe's last," adding, perhaps, their own vulgarity, to make the saying more suited to their palates. Mr. Wasson raved about Judas and Benedict Arnold, comparing President Johnson to them, and then added: "He is obstinate; he is not fit for his place; he has no ideas." Strange that a man who has no ideas should have caused so. great a commotion. When found you out, gentlemen, that the President had no ideas ? It was not before he stepped forward to defeat your revolutionary schemes. Mr. Wasson, if he wants to sink his party in the estimation of all good men, has only to repeat speeches like thatlie uttered yesterday. [Boston Commercial.  Since the war between the President and Congress began in earnest, the wheels of legislation have been clogged, and that body has been engaged in nothing but efforts to defeat the President's plan to restore the Union. The Radicals have not yet agreed upon their plan of hostilities, but the Washington correspondent of the Baltimore Sun gives us the following inkling of what they may dare to aim at:  Some members now say that it is useless to pass bills for the President to veto, and that, as their own measures cannot be enacted, they dare for no other. Others propose a continuous session till the expiration of the 39th Congress, to prevent the President from appointing his friends to office during the recess of the Senate.  To withhold the appropriation bills is another mode of annoyance to the Executive, but the substantial interests of the country would revolt at that, and few members who resort to it could be re elected. There remains one mode, and only one—whereby, if the Republican majority can recover and keep the two-thirds power of the Senate, the President can be .put -down—to-wit, impeachment. The first thing to be done towards this is. to obtain: a. two thirds majority of the Senate.. Several modes have been suggested—one to create' new States in sufficient 'numbers for the purpose.
