S. gunboat Sassacus, which was built last year at the Portsmouth yard, and fitted out at the Boston yard, and which, it will be recollected, was at our Navy Yard in December and January last, arrived here Monday after noon, and will have some slight repairs done to her. Since she left here in January she has been on the blockade oil'Wilmington, and has done valuable service, driving ashore and de stroying two very valuable prizes, the Wild Dayrel and Nntfield, which are said to have been the most costlv blockade runners and car goes which have left England during the war, ore being estimated in London to bo worth over a n.:,lion and the other half a million dollars. The Nntfield was a sixteen mile boat, but the Sassacus, in the chase, made two miles an hour npon her, and had the Nntfield been at sea she wonld have been easily captured, but as it was the was beached. There is considerable feeling on board among the officers and men in relation to some ot the munitions of war taken from tbe two captured * essels and sent here to be adjudged. These goods consisted of muskets, sabres, medicines, iic* and were thought by good judges on board to be worth over *7,000, but after they were f^nt here on the Howquah, condemned, and sold by the court, tbe total amount for distribu tion was reported at about 83,300. The following is a list of the officers of the Saeeacns: F. A. Roe, Lieut Commander; A. W.Mnldaur, Executive Officer, Acting Master, C. A. Boutelle. Acting Master; Edgar Holden, Assistant Snrgeon; G. De F. Barton, Acting A. Paymaster: Edward A. Sawyer, Acting Ensign; August Adler, do; Hobby, 1st Assistant Engineer; Robert N. Ellis, Oscar W. Allison, Dan;el W. Grafly, John W.

Tfe Florida Expedition.?'The report^f the Committee on the Conductof the War upon tfce Florida expedition affords conclusive proof of the falsity of the copperhead charge that the President authorized this expedition for politi cal purposes. It originated entirely with General Gillmore, who had the sole direction of the affair, ar.d probably failed in conse quence of the departure ol General Seymour Irom his orders. The President, after the military expedition bed been decided upon by General Gillmore, sent out an agent with authority to reorganize | c;vil government in the State; but the Presi- j d-nt in his orders and directions disclaimed any purpose interfering with the plan or di rection of the expedition. ?^"General Grierson had a small fight with Forrest on the bridge which the latter had constructed over Wolf river, and succeeded In destroying it, with slight loss. Forrest is said ' to be contemplating a passageof the Tennessee | with his reinforced army. Preparations are made, however, to resist him. despatch from Louisville, Ky.?

States, each dollar weighing seventeen penny weights and six grains." When the half-year- ? ly ground rent became due, the payment was i tendered in United Slate? notes. This was re- j fused, and suit waa brought against the p'irty. The defendant pleaded this tender, to which the plalntill'replied tlvat the deed required sil ver dollars. Tne defendants to this? filed a special demurer, setting up that the notes ten dered were lawful money of the United States, and a legal tender in the payment of .all debts. The court decided this to be a good payment, and therefore entered judgment for the defen dant.

The Funeral ok Mr. Rives.?'The funeral of the late John O. Rives took place at noon to day from his late residence, near Bladeusburg and was attended by an immense concourse of persons, among whom weie many prominent officials members of Congress. Ac. For the con venience of the many persons who desired to attend the funeral at the residence, carriages were in attendance at Jackson Hall, (Globe Office) this morning, and large numbers were brought into requisition for this purpose. Tbe corpse, which had been embalmed by Dr. Holmes, looked very natural, and was attired in a plain black snit. The coffin was of flue mahogany, covered with black clo:h? furnished with plain but heavy silver mount ings, and a silver plate on tbe top, bearing the name and age of tbe deceased. On the coffin was placed a handsome wreath of flowers. The services at the house were conducted by Rev. Dr. Pinkney, of the Church of the Ascen sion, (Episcopal,) and Rev. Dr. Smith, of the Fourth Presbyterian Church, of this city: aft< r which, ihe corpse was placed in the bearse, the following acting as pall-bearers:? George W. Riggs. Esa , Hon. Jacob Collamer, Senator from V* nt; Hon. Justin S. Mor rill, Representative from Vermont; Miclfl Oa ten, Esq., connected with the &'??'>? for many years past; Francis P. Blair, Esq., formerly the partner of Mr. Rives: Lambert S. Tr^e, Esq., of the city post office; Hor.. L. Powell, Senator from Kentucky: Hou. Robert Mallory, Representative from Kentucky; and the cor tege, composed of an immense number of car riages, proceeded to Congressional Cemetery. At th? Government Printing Office the cor tege was jo.ned by theColnmbiaTypographicai Society and Bookbinder's Association, which followed the remains to the cemetery. The remains are not to remain her perma nently, but will be removed to hi^ place near Bladeusburg, where they will be placed in a irasstv* granite sarcophagus in a vaultwhichis now being built there. Mr.Rives some time since ordered two cases to be cut from solid stone, in one of which he wished that his remains should be placed, and in the other thO'-e of His wife. The wotk has been done iu the stone-cutting department north oftlie Patent Office, and the cate for Mr. Rives is nearly finished. lr mea sures H teet 1 inches in length,feet 5 inches in biei.dib, and is 2 leet I inch deep, and in the clear to T leet:} inches long, and "J feet I inch broad. A ma-sh e slab, about G inches thick, is to cover the case, and on this is f<ibe cut the name with date of birth and death of the de ceased. The excellent arrangements for the funeral were under tbedirection of Mr. Samuel Kirby, the undertaker. The Franklin engine-house bell, and other bells, were tolled during the day as a mark of respect for the deceased, and both Houses of Oongress adjourned over to-day for the same . cause. Tri al of Cornelius TCell on Charge or Mt ri>bi:.?This morning, the trial of Tnell, charged wiih the murder ot his wife, was resumed. Tlie prisoner occupied,'ms upen yes terday, a seat in the prisoner's box, ajad seemed to be rather subdued at first. Some of his friends entered into conversation with him. ;ind the conversation, whatever it?> import was, had the effect to cause the prisoner to shed tears. Atterwards he grew more self-possessed, and glanced carelessly around the room, addressiug questions to his guard. Mr. Fayman. Tuell is a ycuiig man, not apparently'more than-25 or .'!(), is of small-size, smallish head, prominent nose, features otherwise not marked, and no particular expression upon the countenance, murderous or otherwise. The calling of tlie jury was proceeded with, atdof the talesmen last summoned yesterday the following were challenged by defense per emptorily: Andrew Caywood, C. C. Anderson, M-?)ppenheiiner.

Utermehle, Turton, N. D. Lamer, and Asbnry Lloyd, joint committee on the pan ot the City Councils, waited noon the President, to represent to him the excess of the quota lor this District. President Lincoln re ceived thrm Tery courteously and pave them a patient hearing. lie then directed them to Col. Fry, the Provost Marshal Qeneral, with a request from him to that ofllcer to revise and adjust the quota of tbe District. The Tisit to Col. Fry, we learn, resulted in an arrangement satisfactory to the committee, although they did not obtain the lull justice which they claimed. According to the under standing, had with the Provost Marshal (Gen eral, the Mayor has since addressed a commu nication to bim, electing to take the census of 1S60 as a basis for the quota under tbe calls ol lS61-'*2, Instead of the enrolment of l?<i3, whicb, as swelled by a floating population ot non-residents, was manifestly too high. This will materially lessen the District's quota, if it does not quite do away with the deficit charged against us. This will be good news to everybody but the substitute brokers. Akothkr dash for Thieves Scc? bssfcu Yesterday, Sergeant Tail having received in formation that stolen goods were deposited in certain houses in the Second Ward, went to Sergeant Skippon and proposed a search for them. The two Sergeants, with Roundsman Voss and Greer started, and first went to the house of Henry Webber, colored, on O street near 12tb. There they found a small box of candles marked "M. Green," two hams and a large side of bacon; several glass jars; five brooms; small sack of coffee; three tumblers; f segars and fine-cut tobacco, all wbich Webber 1 says he bought with the kept, from Henry Plummer, now in jail for other robber ies. Webber was arrested and taken before Justice Thompson, wbo after a hearing of the evidence of the officers and others, sent bim to jail for a bearing. Next they viBited the house kept by Sarah King, colored, on 9th street, between N and O. There they recovered a lot of new dresses, nnder garments, sheets, pillow cases, dress patterns, calico in rolls, and remnants of fine goods in considerable quantity. These are all supposed to be stolen, and are in possession of tbe police. Sarah Kicg was held to bail for a hearing. Fourth Ward Station Cas?r.?Thomas Connelly, drank and disorderly; $1.5:4.

An Unsapb Nurse.?On the nth inst, Ellen Clark, a woman employed at the Mount Ver non House, late Delavan House, was entrusted by Mrs. Thomas, th.. proprietress, with the cere of her infant, about eight months old. Ellen went oft' from the house with tbe infant, got very drunk, and lost tbe child. She was arrested by the Third Ward police for being drunk in the street, and was fined $5 by Justice Thompson. Mrs. Thomas being greatly distressed on ac count of her lost child, the officers were vigi laut in search of it; and vesterday found it at Mr. Roberts' bookstore, Seventh stree, near L. It appears that the nurse being very drunk, sat down on the door step of the store, and seme one in pity for the child took it into the store, and the proprietor had it carefully and properly attended. Tbe drunken nurse was also charged with two petty larcenies, but these were dismissed; and she was sent to the workhouse for 90 days, in default of the fine, by Justice Thompson.
