melancholy things we ever hoard, was the
declaration of a Radical momber from Now York
at one of the caucueoi. of tho brethren in Wash

President in his pocket, to striko off the heads of
Radical offi.;o holders. The poor man mado tho
statoment with tears in his eyes. It is enough to
melt tho heart of a rock. Wonder if it's poBsiblp
that Johnson contemplates the enormity of Ailing,
the posts nnder his Administration with friends
instead of enemies? Wo have heard before, that
it is his intention that n no but conservative mon
shall hold office, but it seemed too horrible for

any man who supports the Union and the Consti

gate weep, and all tho Radical office-holders, if
they have tears, prepare to shod them now.

[FROM O?n OWN OORnESPONDENT.]
New York, July 21.?The papora hero teem
with detailed accounts of Qonoral Sherman's
rapid movomonts and bad speeches. It ap
pears that tho Qoneral is ondoavoring to mako
as many silly Bpocches as ho can in tho
shortest spaco of timo; if this bo his inten
tion, ho will no doubt bo ominontly successful.
It would not bo a bad idoa for tho groat incondia
ry to mako a tour of tho country with a panorama
of I ho burning, of Columbia, wbich bo could idus

cents admission, and ?ending complimentary tick

Wade Hampton in particular.
A most mysterious affair has just como to light?
or rathor has but partly como to light?which
would furnish abundant material for such a talc
of horror as nono but a Foe (I mean H. Fob)
could do juslioo to. A man named Patrick
O'Brien?whoso name suggests Fenian parent

started to dig a well in the middle of a large lot
on Hamilton avenue. After a few digs, noting
that bi? Bpado struck againBt a hard substance,
whereupon he went to work more vigorously that

unhappy soul of ono Mrs. Hates, who disappeared
most mysteriously from hor residence, about ton
yoars ago, and was supposed to have been mur
dered by her bosom's lord There are, howover,
a thousand and ono epocnlations in regard to tho
affair; but, as the skeleton has no speculation in
the eyes that it does glare with, or rathor the oyc
lesB sockote that it does not glare with, althongh
it wan found in a well, tho majority of the conjec
tures may not prove to be well founded.
A German gentleman, who had grown tired of
bearing tho ills that flesh is heir to, attempted
yesterday to blow out Lia brains with a revolver,
and suiting the word to the aotion and the aotion

An important case has just been decided in tho
Superior Court, Justice MoCunn, presiding. Hon.
Benjamin Wood brought an aotion against the
Mayor, Corporation, _c, to recover $30,000 due

thousand haystaoks of enormous magnitude, a
New York dotective officer would not only trace
out the needle if ordered to do so, but could state
exaotly how and when it got there, and how it
had borne its captivity. A few weoke ago, an
officer here, a clerk of the Lost Children's De
partment, received a letter from a young lady
aged twenty-seven years, stating that sho had
just discovered that ?bo had been stolen from her
parents in this city twonty-one years ago, ?nd
carried to Pittston, Penn. Ehe added that she
had been stolen from the house of her aunt, whom
?ho believed to bo named Mr a. Potter. In a
couplo of weeks tho aunt was discovered, and tho
parents would havo been discovered also, had
tbey not taken their departure, many yoars ago,
from this sublunary sphere, and gone to the
abode where detectives oan make no headway.
A few days ago I spent a most agroeablo half
hour in the studio of the great Amerioan trage
dian, Edwin Booth, at his private residence in
East Nineteenth-street. Tho room i? adorned
with pictures and photographs, and on the great
artist's table aro books that exhibit his taste for
litcraturo of tho highest ordor. The most con
spicuous picture in tho room is a large colored
photograph of a beautiful woman, tho dearly be
loved wife of the great actor, who has perhaps
never been seen to smile since death enatohod
her from him tbreo years ago. Booth has aver
been known as a high-toned gentleman, of culti
vated mind, great intellectual developments, and
most fascinating manners; but withal ever quiet
and unobtrusive, with a countenance tinged with
a cloud of melancholy. Since the death of his
wife, and the nnfortunate shook occasioned by
tho ovent which brought the family name into
Buch unwished for and unexpected notoriety,
Edwin Booth, even whilst off tho stage, it, in
mien and conversation, the living embodiment of
Shakbteare'b conception of the melancholy Dane;
and it is no wonder that, in the great tragedian's
dolinoaf i of Hamlet, he is acknowledged to be
the master of the hitherto unrivalled Macbeadt.
Booth's sister, the wife of Clarke, now man
ager of tho Winter Garden, has just finished a
biographical sketch of the life of her father, and
the book has just been published by Oarleton.
The volume is, of course, exceedingly interesting,
and is more authentio than the one published seve
ral yoars ago and written by a young lawyer, who
was Boarcoly sufficiently well posted in all details
to do justice to the undertaking.
As I have informed you (I think) in a previous let
ter, Booth will appoar here in November, at tho
Winter Garden, time nights in eaoh week?tho
other three being sot apart for the performances of
the Italian Opera, nnder the management of the
indefatigable AIarktzek. In anticipation of Booth,

Wo tako tho following interesting extract from
tho proceedings of tho Houso of Representativos
on tho 21st inst. :
THE A8SAR8INATION TE8TIM0NY.
Mr. Rogers rose to a question of priviloRO, and
stated that ho, nu ainomucr of tho Jutlicisry Com
mittee, to which had heou referred tho inquiry as
to tho complicity of Juflbrnon Davis in thu assas
sination of President Lincoln, had been refuei-d
access to tho testimony and papers boforo tho
committee, an-1 that ho was therefore deprivod of
all opportunity to firm buch a judgment in tho
matt?*r as would onablo him to join in tho report
of tho committee.
Mr. lloutwell explained that notwithstanding
tho efforts of tho committee to keep tho testimony
and papers secrot until a report should bo made,
Bunio important portions of them had boon com
municatod to and published by tho New York
Horuld. That publication had led tho committee
to exercise a closer caro over tho papers. They
had roferrod to him (Boutwoll) as a ?-nib-commit
tee, and yoBterday ho had instructed the Clerk of
tho Committee to permit Mr. Rogers to sco tho
papers, but he learnod that ho (Rogors) had em
ployed a phonographic roportor to tako extracts
from them, and he (Boutwoll) had taken posses
sion of tho paper?. He added that the reporter
engaged by Mr. Rogers was a man who had been
engaged iu oditing a robol paper in Memphis,
Mr. Rogers protested that he knew nothing of
that, and ho asked the Houae to lot him employ a
reporter either at his own expenso or at the ex
penso of the Houae, the reporter to bo sworn to
seoresy. Objection was mado. The Speaker
ruled that when papers are iu the hands of a sub
committee to preparo a report, no other member
of tho committee has a right to them until the
report is presented to the committee. Mr. Finds
said he would advise the member from New -Jer
sey to resign as a member of that committee. Mr.
Rogers said that all ho wanted was for tho country
to know tho facts.

The negotiations for an armistice have been de
layed by the necessity of taking into simultaneous
consideration both the conditions of tho armistico
and the preliminary basis of a future troaty of
peaco, if Prussia wishes to know beforehand the
advantages which will be definitely assured to
her. Prince Napoloon was present at the council
of ministers held to-day.

[Milan (July 7) Correspondence London 7101??.]
The first angry discontent of the Milanese on

The Hotel Street and the Pavilion.
" Meeting street " was originally called "tbo
Road," to distinguish it from " the Path," as
upper King street was called before it was built
up aa a street. About 1730-'5 Meeting street was
called also commonly "Old Church," to dis
tinguish it from " New Church " stroet, which
now retains oxolusively the name Church. The ad

and on it may now bo found some of the best
hotels of the South, and in them some of the best
landlords of any land.
Some roaders of the News may not be aware
that the oldest hotel on Meeting street, and one
admirably situated for convenience to business in
King and Mooting streets, and for full enjoy
ment of our Southern air, is the Pavilion, whose
portly and provident proprietor and manager, H.
L. Butterfield, has been for years well known
under and in that hostelry, and is now the senior
landlord of Meeting street by some yoars. In ex
perience and resources for providing for hia
guests, he may ask comparison with any, and
may ask reference to many guests who havo tested
tbo Pavilion since its reconstruction. With many
new additions and improvements, old features
have been retained, aud tho country planters and
farmors of tho interior will now find about tho
Pavilion, for reasonable rates, all the comforts
and attractions which for years made it a reaort
for them and for many Carolinians coming by tho
South Carolin*?. Railroad. Mr. Butterfield has
beon in this Pavilion since 1818, and in this city
ainco 1813, and has enjoyed and retainod a largo
proportion of the travelling custom from farmers,
planters, and merchants of Inner and Upper Caro
lina and Georgia, and from old friends and visi
tors of the myetio tie from all quarters. His per
sonal attentions are now prominentiy given to hia
Pavilion, with good assistants in all departments,
including some well known in service, and some
new candidates for hotel service.
In the reception offico will always be found Mr.
L. H. Wilbon or Mr. A. Bdtterfikld; and, in tho
