Jlnolher Defalcation?The Ketchum Forgeries?Political?
General Dick Taylor?The next Sensation, etc., etc.
New York, AuguBt 23.
On the morning of tho 19th another defalcation
came to light. Wc do not know how much money
has been stolen, but it ia certain that tho Erie
Railroad freight collector haa run away with some
thing between fifty thousand dollars and an unes
iimated amount. Ilia name ia A_bert A. Jones.
He is a native of Hudson, in this Stato, and for sev
eral years wa8 Foreman of Hook and Ladder Com
pany, No. 15. From t_0,000 to $80,000 daily paaaed
through hia handij to the caehior of tho company,
but some of it atnek to his fingers. Three thou
sand dollars were retained in one. day, and perhaps
ho may have taken away a hundred thousand dol
lars?pcrhape even more. He left tliia city ostensi
bly for Now Orleans, a fortnight ago to-day. It
may he that he went in another direction. He was
not suspected till he gave up his situation, held at
a aalary of $1000 per annum.
The Ketchum forgeries have excited suspicions
ngaiiiBt all salaried men who aro entrusted with
money, and who are living extravagantly. Only a
few of the many robbcra have yot boon exposed.
There aro thousands of small peculators in places
Of public trust, but thero aro somo of them hold
thieves, and their exposure is probable, because
there is close ecrutiny now over everything having
a financial shape. Tho detection of Edward B.
Ketchum is not desired by his frionds. Ho was too
popular to excite animosity, and there ia no moral
sense strong enough in Wall-street to insiut upoi
hia punishment for the sake of example Our
youth aro thus corrupted by their own fathers, and
the lesson ia taught, "get wealth honestly if you
can, but get wealth." The firm of Morris Kotchum,
Hon & Co. will pay about two-tlurds of their in
The politicians here are a little nervous over
changes in the Custom Houso horo and claowhcro.
Hannibal Hamlin, of Maine, has been made Col
lector at Boston, and now thero iu somo expecta
tion that our Postmaster and the Burvcyor will be
dropped from the rolls. They aro Howard-Weed
men. Thurlow AVeed is getting tho cold shoulder
from the President. He has controlled tho Re
publicans for many a day. Ho ia an honest man
himself, hence his influence. That, however, is
waning. The haste to make party platforms will
produce some trouble next month, and thero is a
great struggle going on for the supremacy in State
and municipal matters.
Gen. Dick Taylor was in the city on tho 18th, and
in a brief interview with him I found him in ex
cellent health and spirits. He has decided on no
special action, but will await the trial of Jefferson
Davis, before entering upon any field of special
We are all looking for the next sensation here.
The war kept us excited, and robberies and crimes
of every sort are filling the newspapers; but wo
want something more enlivening; or we shall say
that dullness reignB. The truth is that labor has
been demoralized by the war. Men are fevsrish to
become rich, and cannot easily settle down into
their old habits of industry, from which alone can
real wealth, prosperity ana happiness he derived.
We had a fireman's riot here on the morning of
the 20th. Engine companies No. 6 and No. 41
were engaged. One fireman was killed, perhaps
two. Citizens begin to think that it wee no mis
take to break up tho volunteer and substitute a
Said department, which is now going into opera
on with complete success, and lo the salvation of
hundreds of young men who otherwise would bo cor
rupted and ruined by their associations with volun
teer companies. This metropolis is too largo for
voluntary engine companies. They have had
many excellent members, but a sad lot. of mischiev
ous hangers-on and followers.
Mr. and Mrs. Charles Kean will appear at the
Broadway Theatre next Monday. This will be re
freshing to tho admirers of tho drama. The
managers here are driving almost all of their in
tellectual and tasteful patrons away from their
houses by their wretched plays, which are called
sensation dramas, which are generally ridiculous
?rash, unworthy of public attention. The latest
absurdity is Arrah na Pogue, one of Bourcicault'a
Irish concoctions. It is miserably constructed,
and the scenes aro badly managed to produce ef
fect, while the acting in the piece is beneath no
tice. The press here, generally, is so weak and so
under the agents who manage the newspapers,
th.Bt the truth is seldom told about the baa acting
or . wretched plays. Our theatres are afi
extremely low. At "Wallack's they are running
into the maelstrom of dullness and indifference.
Good acting, even there, fas not looked for. In fact,
the best artists are not in this city, and seldom aro
they encouraged to come here. The managers
get plays of cheap merit, puff them up, ana let
mere novices fill tho characters as beBt thoy may.
So, when Mr, and| Mrs. Charles Kean come, wo
cannot but deem it a delight in store for us.
- The second letter of the Italian opera manager,
Mr. Marctzek, appeared yesterday morning. It
is a scorohing affair, and in it estimates are made
.that tho various demand on the opera made by the
Herald, if reduced to money values, would amount
to about twenty thousand dollars each season. The
complaint is, chiefly, that the dictations of th?
Herald are insufferable, and that it is bettor to
lose it? favor than to submit to its extortions.
The whole story is not oat yet, but it will come in
lime. The Herald wishes to direct who shall bo
engaged and who go without engagements; and
one gentlemim singer, w)io has been residing at
Washington Height? for some months as the guest
of Mr. and Mrs. Bennett, has been pressed upon
the attention of Mr. Maretzok, who knows that he
is not of the right stamp s s an artist for the
Academy of Music. Maretzek will do easily with
out tho Herald?will save money by cutting adrift
from it; and tho Herald will be generally discarded
by managers bo soon as they can find it for their
interest to turn their backs upon it. It has not had
any honesty in its criticism of public performers
for fifteen years. Its critics havo been bought at
cheap rates, a? ?lie ledgers 0f ,m j_e theatres

"Mr. Davis has no more information concerning

"I am 8?11 ignorant of tho charges against me,

I am to anBwer. Your letter gave me the first no

Mr. Davis requests Mr. Gillett to have a confer

whenever tho trial may bo brought on, with as
little delay as the nature and importance of the
case will permit.

The we_e known and popular correspondent,
"Druid," writing to the New York JVcics fr^n
Washington, under date of 21st inst., makes the
following statement concerning
THE PRESinENT AND THE MAINE CONVENTIONS.
President Johnson was not hi tho least surprised
at tho action taken by the recent conventions?
Republican and Democratic?in Maine. He has
taken measures to make himself well acquainted
with tho position of party polities in all of the
Northern, Eastern and Western States, and he
know beforehand what? tho temper and spirit of
these two conventions would be. Ho knew that
his plan of reconstruction at the South, and his
views in relation to negro suffrage, would be e:.?
dorBcd by the Democrats, and condemned by the
Republicans. And he expects that thiB will bu the
case, so far as rc.ateB to a largo portion of the
Republican party, in all of the Northern and West
ern States, and also in New England. Mr. John
sou is not blind to tho fact, that the influence of
Mr. Chase, Senator Sumner, Ward Bcccher, and
men of that stamp, in tho Republican party, is
verv groat; that they have been working assidu
ously for the last fow months to induce the Re
publican party to commit.itBelf in favor of negro
suffrage, and in favor of governing tho South by
Military Governors alone lor some four years to
come; of treating tho Southern Statea aa conquered
provinces, and not permitting them to bo repre
sented in the National Legislature at all; ot re
garding the Southern people, in a word, aa a par
cel of subjugated rebela and traitor? who have
forfeited all political rights, and to whom none
whatever ought to bo granted. Such, I repeat, the
President is well aware ia the programme of a
large portion of the Republican party, led by tit?
influential leaders named above.
On the other hand, the President ia well aware
that tho course which he bus adopted?in appoint
ing Southern men to bo Governors of the Southern
Statee ; in recognizing the continued existence,
and, indeed, tho indestructibility of the States ; in
making provision for tho representation, of those
States in Congress, as formerly; and in setting hia
face against negro Huffragc, as he lias done?has
endeared him to a largo portion of tho Democratic
party, and has induced many of the statesmen and
prominent men of that party to array thcmselvea
in support of his administration. Knowing these
facts, therefore, the action of the two recent con
ventions in Maine?Republican and Democratic?
is exactly what tho President expected it would be.
Tho action and the threatening attitude of the Re
publican party does not deter him from his duty.
His policy on the subject of the restoration of tlie"
Southern States to tho Union, and in opposition to
negro suffrage, is fixed and settled; and no consid
eration cas induce him to swerve from it. Ho is
one of those men who would " rather be right than
be President;" and nothing can shake his convic
tion that the Southern people are our fellow citi
zens, and entitled to tho same political rights that
tho citizens of New York and New England enjoy.
Thoso rights he intends they shall have, in spite
of all tho factious opposition of the Republican
S arty. I am not prepared to say that tho Presi
ent will go so far as to remove Gen, Palmer from
his command, because of his recent imwarrantcd
conduct in interfering with the freedom of elec
tions in Kentucky. But I behove that the manner
in which the elections in that State woro conducted
is not such as tho President approves, or intends
to approve. It is probable that tho outrages per
petrated at the'Kentuiky elections will bo Investi
gated, and that where it is evident that the citi
zens were prevented from voting by tho military,
a new election will bo ordered. At all events, I am
confident that tho President is determined that
the citizens of tho Southern States shall have their
rights, and shall not bo molested in the exercise
