WAS IT AN A DW:ERTISEIENT P
WVhile some claim that John Allen,
the daily bread of se.nsation reporters,
and by such characterized as the "wick
twdest man in New York." has really re
tormed. and is " running light on rum,"
there arer others' of a skeptical charac
ter who affcct to believe that John Al
len's desiree "to be an angel," are infi
nitely subordinate to his wish to adver
tise himself through the missionary
medium, and to thus secure service for
the devil through the influence of the
servants of the Lord. A writer in the
New York 7imes holds to this latter
idea. He states that neither Allen.
Thomas Hadden, Slocum or " Kit"
Burns are converted or reformed, but
that th-y are all .makink money by the
absurd excitement which has been cres
ted concerning them by parties whose
desires to bring themselves into noeot
riety were not less than Allen's wish to
be advertised in a unique, cheap, and,
has been proved, in a very sucesmens
manner.. It is said that Allen is allow
ing the ruoms of his "Water street
den " to be used for religious meetings
at a rent of $3.50 p"r month, and that
"Kit" Bums gets 1150 per month for
the use of his rat.pit, during one hour
per day. for the same purpoe. The
correspondent from whom we gala tbis

to find him. It he were talkig to them
"prayin' fellers," his teants, he would
no doubt have used different language,
and we should havehad fall accotant of
the remarkable Interview in the 7ri

that John Allen is even now more
wicked than when irst advertised as
!"the wickedest man in New York."

is highly extolled in this character, but
there were points in which he was
greatly excelled by Jamieson.. About
twenty years ago, just ts the trump of
tame had began to herald the merits of
Jammieson, he was, most unfortunately

port him "n his leading characters on a
theatrical engagement through the
Western and Southern cities. Mrs.
Forrest, then a most attractive lady, ac

as friends, and this friendship ripened
into a deeper sentiment. Jamieson pos

his wife a very elaborately worded let

Jamie-onn's chirography, and signed
"('ensuelo." It was indeed a very per
fect imitation in style of the charming
novel of G(eorge Sand. (Madame Dude

From this time. Jatnieson, who had
glittered for a day in the theatrical
world, experienced a permanent repulse
in al) his efforts to regain reputation.
The ban of the destroyer was upon him,
and whenever he attempted to appear
upon the boards, at New York, Boston or
Philadelphia, the friends of Forrest,
whose name was legion, greeted him
with hisses, and sometimes more sb-
stantial evidences of their spleen. He
became a rover. Fitted by nature for

strolling companies which pained
through the country, playing star en

but still felt that his punishment was
not unmerited. He could never se.
His proud spirit yielded to the humli

We have often heard him, while asmev
crating his inamoemoe of any criminality,
curse his eJistenes, and iemoan the fate

otul great Secretary of to-day has had
an ample field for the display of his
abilities as a dipltnatist. Take his
letters to Minister Adams all through
the war! Iow adroitly did he manage
in the most trying cases; not, on the
one hand, to compromise the honor of
the country, and on the other to avoid
offence. by any pretentious bullyism or
bravado. The surrender of Mason and
Slidell, at a time when every loyal voice
was raised against it. was one of the
finest successes of diplomaty known to
modern times. The volumes of our in
ternational State correspondence have
grown bulky in the hands of Mr. Seward.
They embrace an immense amount of
matter, on a great variety of exciting
topics. Yet neither party has had the
audacity to find fault with them.
Long after the grand old man is
gathered with the dust of the mighty,
these attestations to his great neus will
excite the admiration and challenge the
gratitude of his countrymen.
The occupation of a diplomat in tll:
country. Is a thankless one. His farm.,
if successful, will be of course, enduring.

of our statesmen as our volumes of di
plomatic correspondence. They are en

most acute powers of intellect.
We have beeen betrayed into these
remarks from having received-as well
as noticed others getting-three or four
volumes of Mr. Seward's correspondence
with our Ministers abroad, since the war,
which were sest by our discriminating
Representative, Mr. Cavanaugh. We
