A few ovenings ago, while a respeotablo old gen
tleman was walking along Fifth Avenue, within
about a half dozen blocks of bis residence, he
found himself suddenly in collision with a pedes
trian, who was hiniH?lf wonding bis way in an op
posite direction. The sudden jar, which almost
knocked the old gontloman off of his aristocratic
pins and caused tho loss of his equilibrium, sug
gested to his suspicions mind pick-pockets and
the probable loss of his live hundred dollar time
piece; suiting tho thought to the action and tho
action to tbo thought, bis hands sought bis pock

ways beon celebrated for going well, had now
gone. With stops "aa swift as meditation or the
thoughts of lovo" did our Fifth Avenue friona
turn in pursuit of tho stranger, whom he soon
succeeded in overtaking; then drawing a revolver
ho presented it to the other's breast, remarking
as he did so, "Qivo mo that watch or you aro a
The stranger, who did not relish tho idea of being
a dead man in such warm weather, bandod over the
watch and took ?Mis departure at a speed that
would have won a smile of approbation or a horao
laugh from the ghost of Flora Tomplo. On arriv
ing home, the old gentleman hurried np to bis
bod ohamber to givo a detailed account of his ad

his joys, bis sorrows and his greenbacks?but
what was bis surprise when, on referring to the
loss of bis watch, said bosom partner informed
him that be bad left it at borne, at tbo same time
producing the veritable time-piece, and showing
tho old gontloman that he bad actually been
guilty of a daring robbery, and bad, by threaten
ing tho Hfo of au innocent atrangor, succeeded in
robbing him of a valuable chronomoter. It will
bo remembered that our valiant friend simply
domanded "that watch," whilst the othor did not
by any means understand the joko, nor see the

by the ghostly double-ticking of the legitimnto
and illegitimate time-pieces, and resolved to ad

Tho incident which camo undor my immediate
coguizauoe is as follows : Last night, as I was
riding on the Sixth Avenne cars with a largo party
of Oharlestonians?amongst whom was ono of
your most popular and experienced young physi
cians, Dr. D.?whilat somo- of the party were
standing on tho platform, a man rushed into tho
crowd and grabbed Dr. D.'s watch-chain; where
upon Dr. D., not wishing to present his watch and
chain to an entire stranger, made a counter grab
' at the man, and there was a beautiful prospeot of
a regular engagement (Moultrie had come up as
a reserve), when the man explained that he had
grabbed at the brake and not at the watob; and,
in order to prove that ho could not possibly have
beon aotuated by the doaire to appropriate the
watch to his own uso, he explained (in Qerman)
that he was already the bappy proprietor of a
time-piece, which he proved by exhibiting a large
plated "turnip," or what we may call a vegetable
watch, worth about thirty dollars per dozen. The
man insisted (in German) and the driver of tho
car (in English) that ho had only gone to turn the
brako of the car, and that the grabbing of the
watch-obain was accidental?to which Dr. D. re
plied that if he had bad hie six-shooter about him,
the accidont mi^ht have beon attended with
Borious resulte. Tho gentleman continued to con
verse with himself, confidentially, in Qerman, for
some timo, and so beguiled tho monotony of a
long and tedious rido.

Letter from Secretary- Beward Kndorslng
ttie PUlIadelphla Convention.
The following important lettor from Secretary
Sewabd, on tho proposed Philadelphia Conven
tion, we tako from our Washington oxebanges of
the 16th instant:
DEPAnTMEltT OF STATE, >
Washington, July 11. f
Sin: Excuso mo for expressing surpiiao that you
ask me whether I approvo of tho call of a propos
ed Union National Convention at Philadelphia.
After moro than five yoara of dislocation by civil
war, I regard a restoration of the unity of tho
country its moat immediato as well aa its most
vital interest. That restoration will bo completo
when loyal mon aro aninitted as roproscntatives
of tho loyal peoplo of tho eleven States bo long
unrepresented in Congress. Nothing but this can
completo it. Nothing more romaius to bo done,
and nothing more is uoc&sary.
Every day's dolay is attended by multiplying
and increasing inconvenionccs, embarrassments,
and dangers, at homo and abroad. Congress
possesses tho power exclusively. Congroas, after
a session of hcvou months, still omita to oxorciao
that power. What can bo done to induco Con
gress to act? Ibis is tbo question of tho day.
Whatovor is done must be done in accordance
with the Constitution and laws. It is in porfoct
accordance with the Constitution and laws that
the poople of tho United StatoB shall asaomblo by
delegates in convention, and that when so as
sembled thoy shall address Congress by respect
ful petition and remons tranco; and that tho peo
ple m their soveral States, Districts, and Terri
torios shall approve, sanction, and unito in such
respectful repr?sentations to Congress. .... ? ?
No one party could do thiu effectually, or oven
eeoms willing to do it alone. No local or popnlar
organization could do it effectually. It is tho in
terest of all parties alike, of all tho Statos, And of
all auctions?a national interest?the interest of
the whole people. Tho Convention, indeed, may
not succeed in induciug Congress to act; but if
tbey fail the attempt oan mako mattora no worse.
It will be a lawful and patriotio attempt made in
tho right direction?an effort to bo remembered
with prido and satisfaction whether it succeed or
fail. Tho original Union of tho Statos was
brought about by movements of the same char
acter. Tho citizen who objects to the Convention
is bound to proposa a bettor plan of proceeding
to effect tbo desired end. No otbor plan is offered
orevon thought of. Those who should oppose it
would seem to me to manifest at best nnooncern,
if not opposition, to all reconstruction, reorgani
zation, and reconciliation betwoon the alienated
masses of tho Amerioan people.
To admit that the Convention will fail would be
to admit that tbo people of the United Statos are
deficient in oithor wisdom or the virtue ncceaaary
to continue the existence of the Republic. I be
hove no such thing. A great political writer says
that government is a secular roligion, and that
tho peoplo of every country aro divided into
two classes, oach maintaining a distinct puli? ioal
laith ; tho ono class always fearing the very worst
that can possibly happen, and the other hopea,
undor every oircumatanco, tho very best that can
in any ovont happen. Without accopting this
theory as absolutely true, I think that all men do
f'enerally act from a motive to guard against pub
ic danger, or else from a positivo desire to do
good. Both olasaos may, therefore, favor tho
present attempt to restore tbo unity of tho nation.
I am, eh-, your obedient servant,

Tho abovo communication canio to hand last
week, in tho absonce of the editor from tho city,
and as it rofers to a public matter, wo uso our
columns to givo publicity tj tho commonts it na
turally calls forth.
Answoriog tho Colonel sent horo from Hoad
qnarters at Charleston, to iuveatigato the grave
offence, we would stato that "tho information
upon which was basod the article in our issuo of
tho 5th inst., in which wo speak of tho Temple of
Mourning, and of Confederate flags boing placed
therein," was our own personal eyo sight. Aud
that there may bo no misunderstanding as to tho
language uttered on tbe occasion, wo reprotluco
tho objectionable paragraphs. Referring to the
Temple of Mourning, wo said :
"Twined aronnd its pillars, hanging from its arches
and Interwoven In every beautiful shapo, wero 1ho
wreaths, croasos and festoons already described, while
dotting the whole structure wero cards, b ?ring tbe
nsmos of the dead, peeping out among tho leaves. Hot
toss, small Confederate flags draped In black, crape
twisted aronad BwordB. which recalled the memory of
DeS'usaaro, Oladden, John son, Grsgg and Jenkins, and
a hundred othor di tails of beauty were thero to remind
one not more of the gallantry of the dead than tbe
affection of tho living."
And again, referring to tho silent encampment
of the dead, we obsorved : "As if by magio tho en
closure was filled with ladies and children, and
one hundred and fifty mounds of earth bloomodin
flowers and wreaths of green. Numerous little
Confederate flags, too, pooped out of tbe new cov
ering, to tell that, if in lifo the soldiers wore re
mombored, in death their cause was not for
To theso simple exhibitions of woman's love?
these little tributes offered by childron to the
memory of the dead?General Sickles lends so
much importance as to sond to Columbia a Brevet
Colonel of the United States to investigate tbe
oircumBtancea and learn whether "treason" be
really again rampant in onr midst. We trust that
officer has been satisfied. He need havo gono no
further tban the courteous officer commanding
this post, or bis subordinates, to have learned
that thero is no locality in tho South whero better
order, better obedience to law, and bettor mani
festations of loyalty to the General Government,
are observable than in this city of Columbia. On
tho other hand ho need only to have accosted the
the first woman or child mot on our streets to be
informed that if it is a crime to wear, in memory
of our dead, a Confederate flag over their hearts,
thon is every drop of blood that courses through
thorn dyed with the so-callod iniquity.
Tho occasion was one to call forth tbe saddest
reminiscences, and as orapo was used as an em
blem of sorrow for departed friends, so diminu
tive Confederate flags were employed to typify
sorrow for a lost cause.
Much as somo Federal officers may desiro to dis
cover evidences of disloyalty in the South that
shall keep upstanding armies and continue lib
eral salaries, wo think that in the present instance
General Sickles has shot far belov his mark in
taking the impulses of women and children as his
text for a report to Secretary Stanton on tho un
reconstructed condition of South Carolina. From
a BeaBt Butler we might have anticipated it?
from a man of tho world, like Daniel E. Sickles,
who knows something of lite and its sympa
thies, and who expects, young man as he is, one
day to doff his uniform and|hold high civil offices,
we had no thoughtrthat so small a mattor would
command his attention or excite his fears.
With such acute eyes upon us, one scarcely
knows where disloyalty ends and patriotism bo
fins.' We may be indicted for not celobrating the
th of July; or called upon to answer for tho colors
of our wife's ribbons; or held to account for a dis
sipation that leaves too much red at tho tip oi
one's nose. The day of small things appears to
havo como. We can only say, in conclusion, that
if tho commander of tho department will lcavo the
care of Columbia to Col. Groen, his officers and
regulars, now stationed at this post, than whom
wo havo not bad more quiet or courteous soldiers
sinco tho close of tho war, ho will bo promptly
admonished of any disturbance of the public pcac?
sufiicicnt to provoke the sending of a paragraph
to Washington, and wo h1u.I1 bo spared tho trouble
of writing editorials to explain why the ladica and
children of Columbia, ou a mourning occasion, ill
dolgo in the inuocout display of that which will be
remembered and respected for generations U

variable. But doeB he take the-' proper oonrse to fortify
his constitution and bodily organs against the extremeq

perhaps, that only an iron man could bear such great
beat, or such violent cold, or such sudden vicissitudes.
Why then d>eshe not resort to tbe groat Tonlo and
Preventive, whiob, if It will not make him an iron man,
will at least quadruple tbo capacity of his system to re
