Considerable ncitfrnent exists at Lebanon Ohio, occasioned by an attempted conspiracy to defraud a lit* insurance company. A mao named McFadden arrived at the bouse ol Frank Richardson. near Lebanon, on tbe mgbi ol tbe 25th instant, and it was given out the nut day tbat he bad died of cholera. A coffin, supposed to comain tbe remains, wu sent to ha:on, Ohio, and interred at midnight. Suspicions

of foul play being aroused, officers wtc sent fr. m Lebanon, who examined the (rave and found tbe coffin to contain bro?mcorn seed McFadden's whereabouts is no! known. Dr. K>cliard?on is agent for a life Insurance company at Kiton. Frank Kic.iard"on a?.d B. ML Batcheider are the parties in. terested. Tbey have been arrested. The Old Colony and Newport railroad tra-k has been washed away for a considerable distance at savin Hill, Dorchester, about three miles from Boston, bjk'b* feartnl storm which prevailed there yesterday. Considerable danage n^s been done to good* in cellar* near the wharves, trees and chimneys were blown down in all directions, and about forty wt oi the Eastern Kailroad bridge across the Mystic river, between Somerville and Chelxea. was wa?hed away at high water, aud all travel suspended. Jerome Glosson has been arrested in Williamsporf, Md., charged with Killing Clinton Keucb, ot that place, in the spring of l^tsi The difficulty grew out of politics. Keticta bemg an ardent sympathizer with the South wasordered ontof town by the Unionists, and in a disturbance which followed was shot dead. Olnsson was a t'nionist, served in ttw army during the war, and since its close has been living at Williamsport. He has been re. leased on bail. A murderous affair occurred at Nashville Christmas night between, a party of regulai cavalry and a party of policeman. Theforinei wi re cheering lor Lincoln and the| Union when tbe latter cajne up with answering cheers for Jeff. Davis. A melee followed, in which Edward Crego. a soldier, was shot, dying in a few minutes. Sergeant H. Kishiej received a serions wound in the head. Ureal excitement exists over the affair, and a numbei of unofflcered soldiers are out bunting for tht murderers, with thread of vengeance. The Conservatives in St. Lotus report tha! President Johnson decliires to interfere in Misi-ouri affairs on the ground that each Stati sbonld be left free to preserve peace, and thai no interference will be tolerated, unless tho 1'nited States laws are violated or the Sta*? calls for help. This is the supposed ground for General Oram's order withdrawing tbf troops from Lexington.
