NEW YOBX, May 17.-It will be perceived, from
tbe beading of tbia letter, that I have taken a
pretty considerable leap since my last, which, it
will be remembered, was dated from Louisville.
The fact of the matter is that your correspondent,
having grown tired of his " Bohemian " life, and
being particularly anxious to got back into his le
gitimate associate-editorial traces at the good old
NEWS office, had suddenly made np his miad to
take np his line of march for "home, awoothonio,"
yet thought it just as well to choose a rou to (about
a half a thousand miles out of the way, moro or
less) that would afford an opportunity of a glance
en passant at the Big City before re turning home
to settle down once more. Tour readers will, of
conrad, be delighted to learn that the Quaker Oity,
which loaves here on Saturday next, will number
"Bohemian" among its distinguished (and sea
In consequence of tho faot that since my last I
have been in a state of confusion worse con
founded, arising from the rapidity of my transition
from one placo to another, or, more properly
speaking, from one placo to several others, my
letter is apt to refloot said confusion, and present,
at best, but a conglomerated masB of kaleidoscopic
I left Louisville for Cincinnati in a floating pal
ace called the General Lyllle, at noon on a Sun
day. At the same hour (on the same Sunday) an
opposition palace, the Wild Wagoner, stnrted
from an an j i cent wharf, and the two palaces
forthwith began to run a race, which was vory
pretty and exceedingly exciting, yet disagreeably
suggestive of a general blow-up, We had hardly
proceeded a mile on our way, tho broad and beau
tiful banks of tho majestic river Booming to flit
past ?B with the velocity of the wind, wheu I ob

and immediately mado preparations for a cool
bath and a display of eci?-ntific swimming. They
did collido, but, mimbil? die lu ! no damago wau

alongside of eaoh other aa closely as though
chained together, and many of the paasongers

baokward and forward from one to the other du

and I learned from our captain that the Wild
Wagoner did it purposely to be drawn along by

Bides of the river we got out of the, what I may
call, auction proximity, and we beat the race.
Arriving at Cinoinnati, I had an opportunity of
seeing the longest suspension bridge in the world
(not yet quite completed) which spans the Ohio
at this point.
A etay of a COuple of hours in Cinoinnati only
allowed me to observo two things in a hurried and
general manner-find, that it is a magnificent
and flourishing city; and secondly, that tho break
fasts at tho Burnett House are not unacceptable
to the hungry traveller.
Before starting for Now York, via the-,
I think it is called Pennsylvania Central or Pan

Tho scenery a.ong the ?Uleghany Mountains is

the Great Throne blazing in tho rciulgent splen
dor caught from the luminous rays of a million
suns that light the mansions of tho Great Om
nipotent. Horo bold and rooky precipices-Itara
deep ravines-and anon we are whirled along tho
"Horse-Shoo Gap," which, as ile namo implies,
is shaped like a horso-shoo, where the coup aVcril
ia so superbly magnificent that no pen (much
less my feoble one) can or tiaro attempt to paint
the sublimo picture drawn by the hand of the
Great Architect himeolf.
Arriving in New York ia duo timo-losing the
six thousand dollars and the forty cents for insur
ance premium-I find this groat oity ault over is,
and ever shall bo, the greatest city on the Ameri

oities in tbe United Pt atoa, bat Now York excels
them all, as does tho grandeur of the majestic
mountain the pretensions of a potty bill. Now
York Is the. city after all.
Tho two great excitements of the day- (leav
ing out tho Fenian question, which is no longer
an oxcitement notwithstanding tho now phase it
has taken in tho advent of tho groat STEVENS),
tho two grout excitements then aro : tho Encino
Law, by whiuh licenses to sell liquor aro refused

it, is extraordinarily airy and scant.
Tho ExcidO Law, which prohibits tho salo of
liquor in small quantities excopt whcro licenses
aro given by the .?Board,** prohibits tho anio of it
entirely after twolvo at night, nr on Sundays,
though a ditjiigroonulu thing to think? r? in gene
ral, aud to Sunday (lager bier) drinkers in par
ticular, meets with tho hearty approval ?,f "Bohe
mian," if only from tho circumstance that it will
no doubt result in the bn akitig up of the greatest
do'iB of iniquity in No?v York, known ua he pretty
waiter-girl saloons. TI.eso saloons havo ruined
thousands of tho most promising young men (aud
many old ones too) in this city, and brought to
shame, ruiu and self-destruction many a poor
young girl. Inasmuch ?a thoy will no longer be
allowed to sell aught but coffee, chocolate, lemon

A Very I.argo Hear.
Messrs. Editors: Vour readers may perhaps be
Interested by an accouut of the killing of a v. ry
largo bear, which took place on last .donday morn
ing, 14th instant, in Williameburg District, about
two miles above Murray's Ferry, on the Sanfet
Biver. The exploit was performed by Mr. CHAS.
LESESNE, who lives in the above-named locality.
Mr. LESi-NE rode out very early Mouday morning
to drive up his shoop, taking nothing along with
him but his whip and his faithful dog. In riding
along on the edge or the swamp ho di??Q\-erod o,
very large black animal walking leisurely about.
He ?t rirot thought it was a cow, but, upon clos-r
inspection, ho found it to be a very largo black
bear. He observod tho direction in which it was
walking, and rode round bim to intorcopt his path.
He waited a few inomeuts, when np walked the
frightful monster to within ten.steps of where hu
wat sitting on hie horse. As soon as tho bear dis
covered him ho wheeled and took to his heels as
fast au he could go, and Mr. L. iu pursuit on
horseback. He soon overtook him, and in the
mount imo calling his dog-a very fierce and power
ful animal be urged him to tako hold of tho
bear. Tho dog soi/iotl tbo eavago beast, but waa
knocked ten feot by a blow from ono of tho foro
paws of tbo bear. The dog rouo and returned to
the contest, but only again to bo knocked heols
over bead bt the bear. This contest with the dog
checked the bear's spcod and enabled Mr. LESESNE
to come up, mid by snapping his whip and hal
looing hy induced the bear to climb a largo tree.
Ho tin n redo rapidly back to tho field whcro his
negroes "were at work, and ordered ono of them
to stand ut the foot of tho treo until ho could go
homo end procuro bis gun. He quickly returned,
and with a well-directed aim, ?out toti buckshot
into his sido, which brought old Bruin dowu with
a tremendous crash. Bruin then sot up tho moat
hideous screaming, and was gritting his mon
strous turtkj, when another discharge of buck
shot caused bim to walk ofl' a fow paces and fall
Mr. h. haviug thus secured his game, found
that it would roquiro all the avallablo forco on his
plantation to manage it. He sont home for ali big
negro mon. a wagon and two mules *, and after
the moat herculean labor in dragging him to tho
nearest point to which the wagon could come, the
bear was thrown in and hauled home, it requiring
seven men to put him into tbo wagon. Mr. L. at
tempted to weigh him, but his eteolyards drawing
only 400 pounds, it was found impracticable.
Somo of tho neighbors estimated tho weight at
from COO to 700 pounds. He measured eight feet
and some inches from tail to snout, and is sup
posed to havo boon from 20 to 25 yoars old. Tbo
tusks protruded from two to threo inches from
the jaw bone. Ho was onveloped in fat from four
to five inches thick. The amount of fieah upon
his body was fully equal to what is obtained from
the largest stall-fed ox. Those who tasted it pro
nounced it fully equal in sweetness and flavor to
the finest beefsteak. This was doubtless tho largest
boar evor killed in South Carolina.

The Frctdmen'i Bureau Commissioner? in
Savannah-Interview with Citizens.
[l?Y<m the Savannah Herald, Wh inst.]
Gouerals Steedman and Fullerton, who consti
tute a Commission sont out by President Johnuon
to investigate the operations of the Freedmen's
Bureau in the Southern 8tates, and whose arrival
in this city w-> announced yesterday, held an in
terview last evening with a number of the loading
citizens of Savannah. At about Ave o'clock some
tweiity-flve or thirty of our most rcspeced citi
zens, representing all the various interests and
profersions, had awsombled in the parlor of the
Pultt&ki House, when the commissioners entered,
and Mayor Anderson introduced the gentlemen
present io tutu to General Steedman, and after
wards to Qnnoral Fullerton.
General Steedman opened the conference by
stating briefly the objects of his mission to be to
inquire into the operation? of the Freedmen's Bu
reau, to leaxu tbo influence it exerted upon the
relaiipus of the two race?; whether its tendency
was to produw" harmony or antagonism between
them; whether, io g?.:e?,?J. H? ?fleet waa for harm
or for good; and whether I? waa necessary or ex
pedient to cottinne ita existence. U?n. ?V ?Horton
and himself bail called upon the citizens of every
town through which they had passed to lay be
fore them any grievances they bad to complain of
in reference to the Bureau, not holding public
meetings, hut conferr<ng with them in confidence.
He invited the gentlemen present to state what
they know of the evils of tho management of tho
Bureau in Georgia.
Mr. J. M. B. Lovell said that he bad boen re
quested, as a member of the Bar, to call the at
tention of tho CommiHsioners to the Freedmen's
Court. Tbe action of this court, in which both
civil and criminal cases wero adjudicated without
a jury, while all the othor courts wore open and
equal rights for blacks and whites wero guaran
teed by tho laws of the State, were calculated to
f ster a feeling of antagonism between t^he races.
If a white man an^aulted another white mau he
was allowed a trial by jury; if ho assaulted a ne
gro ho was di-iiied that mauifest right.
Gen. BteedmUn repliod that be was unaware
that the agt-uts of the Bureau wero exercising
Judicial function?; that he had not eoutempUtod
their doini; so when he gavo Gou. 'Hilson authori
ty to apply to iho State Convention for the ap
pointment of civil agents of tbo Bureau. He would
examine into tho matter when hu reached Angos
ta and havo tho Frcodmon's Courts abolished in
Goncral Fullerton remarked that tho great pre
text for maintaining the froodmon's courts was
that tho frccdmen can not obtaiu justice in the
civil courts, as the local judges refused to receive
tostimony from nogroen, and that this opinion bad
obtained a very general belief in the North through
tho roprosontations of newspaper correspond
General R. A. Lawton in reply inatanoed a re
cent caso in a neighboring county, where a negro
convicted of mordor by a civil conrt had been re
oommouded to mercy, and his sentence had beni
General Fullerton inquired whether any atten
tion was paid to the rules of evidence in taking
testimony in the Freedmen's Court. Mr. Lovell
replied, nono whatever; that officers had filled tbe
bench of tho court who had no legal education,
and who had not tho capacity, even if they had
tho host intentions, to conduct examinations in
accordance with tho established roles of courts of
GeneraTFullerton inquired whether 'ponaltiea
were inflicted by the judge in accordance with the
laws of tbo State, ?fudge Win. B. Fleming an
swered that the penalties were often at variauco
with the laws of the Htato ; that for the same of
fence for which a wbito man was sent to the Peni
tentiary a negro wa.? sontenced to labor a short
period on the streots, Ho referred to several
cases in point.
Hon. ?*>. Cohen also mentionod several similar
cases, and wont ou io say that the action of the
Freedmen's Court in this respect had a most dele*
furious iniluoiico on tbo negro, loading bim to fef-1
that he had a special protection and Tioenso, and
that it gavo rise to jealousy and animosity be
tween the races. Ho was confident that the bol
ter class of citizens and tho well feeling of all
elapses wero disposed to rocogniso fully tho new
rolations of tho ncgrooo to thom-the laws of Geor
gia showed it.
Gonoral Stoodman askod if any complaints had
boon mattovof unjust discrimination in tho deci
sions rendered by tbo civil courts.
Judge Fleming said ho had hoard of none ; ho
promised for himself that tho nogro should havo
the samo justice ?noted out to him in his own court
as the white mt*n.
Rev. Mr. Wynn was hero introduced. He spoko
of tbo convention of colored ulergymon now being
held in this city, composod of delega ten from the
neighboring Slates; ho had benn ploasod to ob
serve the fooling that prevailed in this convention;
it had beon pub.icly avowed in a set of resolutions
as tbo sense of tho convention that a bad and
dangerous feeling was growing ont of tho inter
ference in their relations with thoir fortuor masters
of strangers who carno amoi g thom protending to
be thoir friondd. The resolutions also thanked
tho citizeiu of Charleston for their uniform kind
ness to? th.? colored people; iu the languago of tho
resolutions, they hurled back the libels upon tho
Boothera pooplo who were their true friouds, and
condemned tho couduot of tho Northern emissa
ries who had como to incite inscrrootlon. Mr.
Wynn said ho had boon greatly impressed with
tho sensible and manly tone of tho convention,
filien would have dono oredit to any delioerativo
assembly. In the diaoussions and the proooodlniis
generally an intellectual ability was manifested
far in advanco of what he had looked for.
GOD. Steedman remarked that the negroes,
whorever he had passed, had horne tsstlmony to
tho kindness of tho intelligent poonta of the South;
they regarclod thom as their friends, and had had
no complaints to make of thom, excepting of a i
certain class in tho cities whom they denominated
Juago Law ?poko at considerable length. Ho '
said the groat desideratum ?t tho present timo is
tho maintenance of a kindly fooling between the
two mutually dependent classes; whatever tended ?
to produce the contrary state of things was dele
terious and would causo "delay in the return of '
prosperity." Tho happiness of tho country de
pends on their coming together in their mutual '.
relations. Thoro was a difference in their condi
tions, social and natural;.wo cannot expect an
obliteration of this difference atonco, if ever, but .
mutual interoots would inevitably bring tlicm into I
the kindly relations which bau always existed
As for the results of the operations of the Bu
reau, he knew only what his former servant?, bad
told bim-that they had been advised not to mako
contract-., to wait for the Government land
bounties; and the consequence was that whilo he
and his neighbors had fifty or sevonty-fivo acros '
?frico planted, instead of 400 or 500 acres, as for
merly, Northern mon in the same neighborhood
bad from 500 to 1000 acres uuder cultivation, with
plenty of laborers. Ho mentioned this to show
that the Southern people would bo compelled from
interest to treat the freedmen well. Meanwhile
they should not be prejudiced against their old
masters nor the latter inflamed against them by
outside pressure. . Mutual dependence would
establish the true relations between the races if
they were left to themselves. But the Bureau had
produced alienation on account of the distinction
which it made
Gen. Fullerton inquired if any one know of any
instance of malfeasauco on the part of any offi
cers of tho Bureau, such as accepting bribes,
working plantations, demanding recompense for
procuring laborers for planters, ?fee. There waa
no response to this interogatory.
After this a goneral conversation ensued, tho
conduisions reached being that the tendency of
the Frccdmen's Bureau was mischievous in recog
nizing the whites as tho euemiea of the blacks,
and that if it wore withdrawn the responsibility
folt by the peoplo to,, protect and caro for the
freedmen would bo increased.
The commission, after completing the investi
gation of Bnreau affairs in this vicinity, will pro
ceed at onco to Augusta, leaving probably this
