DBW YORK LETTER.
[FROM OUR OWN CORRESPONDENT.]
NEW YORK, August 17.-In my last letter I remark?
ed, in referring to the Philadelphia Convention,
that whilst I hoped that the most salutary results
would accrue, I still entertained fears to the con?
trary. My hopes are now in the ascendency, and
my fears are dispelled. I judge, by the effect pro?
duced here, what will be the general effect through?
out the country, and that tells me that all will be
well; that good-fellowship is to be re-established;
that the Union is rosily to be restored in sub?
stance, not in shadow; and that the Radicals who
have always been radically wrong, will soon be
radically used up and emphatically euchred.
When the evening papers came out hero on the
afternoon of the first day of the Convention, it
was "better th?n a play" to note the expressions
of countenance and the remarks of tho hoi polloi,
?as each one, in glancing over tho proceedings,
perused the paragraph giving an account how the
lion and the lainb.sat down-or rather walked in
together; how Massachusetts and South Carolina,
or South Carolina and Massachusetts, came arm
and arm into the wigwam-figuratively speaking,
smoking the pipe of peace.
Every man wore a smiling countenance, and
such commentaries as "bully for them both"
"good egg"-"kiss and be friends"-"the war is
over"-"we've had enough fighting"-furnished
abundant evidence of the faot that the good seeds
which have been so skillfully sown have already
taken deep root in the hearts of Northern as well
as Southern men, and that a great tree will Boon
spring up whose branches 'sbaTT'Bpro?'ir out and
overshadow all of the past that it were well should
As this Philadelphia Convention has been a
brilliant suooess, so will the other, whioh is to bo
held on the 8d proximo, prove to be a miserable
failure. I refer to the JACK HAMILTON Southern,
Badioal, and Ethiopian suffrage concern. A mass
meeting of the supporters of this movement was
held here at the Cooper Institute on Wednesday
night, and was a horrible flash in the pan.
HORACE GREELEY made a apeeoh in whioh he
called the particular attention of bis hearers to
the faot that they ought to sympathize with their
brethren who had been butchered in New Orlea ns.
The Rev. T. W CON WAT literally praised the New
Orleans negroes up to the skies, by remarking
that their praises should be written in the sky in
golden letters. Dr. NEWMAN, a white man, held
forth in the same strain, and was followed by Mr.
Garnet, a black man. Of course a hat waa handed
round, and some few of the audience gave a faint
expression to the sympathy in a greenback point
of view. Dr. RANDOLPH (not JOHN RANDOLPH)
then indulged in some complimentary remarks
about President JOHNSON, whom he accused of he
longing to the canine specios; and then some one,
fearing that tho hat would go round once moro,
moved an adjournment. In the very appropriate
and exproBsive though inelegant language of the
Herald, the whole affair was a "decidod lizzie."
BERNARD FRIERY, the murderer of HARKY LAZA?
RUS, the prize-fighter, will bo executed to-dav,
unless ho be reprieved by the Governor. Sport?
ing men have actually been heartless enough to
make wagers for and against the reprieve.
Mrs. ELEANOR T. BISHOP, the plaintiff in tho
BISHOP divorce case, has brought sn action
against her husband and CLARA B. WALLACE,
charging them with appropriating to their own
use some jewelry of her's worth $2000. The wile
swore that the husband had stolen tho jewelry,
while he swore that the entire ohargo was a fabri?
cation. The Judge deoided in favor ol' tho de?
fendant, but this does not prove his innocence.
If a man can rob a wife of her most precious jow
els (next to her virtue), his love and her happi

trinkets also ?
The great LORD bond robbery caso has again
been brought up on the tapis. It will bo remem?
bered that on the 7th of last April Mr. LORD was
robbed of an immonse amount of bonds ; that a
man named ENNIS was arrested ; that $200,000
was reoovered, and that the thief afterward made
his osoape. Yesterday ten other parties were
arrested-in fact the ten to whom waa assigned
the most important part of the programme (and
who performed their partB well)-tho abstracting
the money from the safe. They havo beoo locked
up in durance vile, in default of $50,000 bail.
The city cars aud stages, from their uncomfort?
ably overcrowded condition, have grown to be a
downright nuisance, wherefore it ha? been sug?
gested that it would be expedient, as well as
profitable, to institute a system of cab arrange?

London and Paris. Tho suggestion will no <]oubt
soon be adopted. It is to be hoped that it may be.
A murder was committed at 12 o'clock on Wed?

General Magruder and Mr. Davis.
It will be remembered by those who have read
Dr. Craven's book on the "Prison Life" of Mr.
Davis, that the distinguished captive reflected
with Borne severity upon those officers of the
Southern army who left the country after the olose
of the recent war. Much was and is to be said in
defence of the course adopted by these gentlemen,
but it is not our present purpose to discuss that
question. We simply desire to oall attention to
the subjoined letter from General Magruder,
which we copy from a recent number of the Mexi?
can Times. It is a model of soldierly generosity
and high-toned gentlomanly courtesy :
MEXICO, July 22, 1866.
I have read, with deep interest, in a New York
paper, copious extracts from the "Prison Life'' of
Mr. Jefferson Davis, as presented to the world by
Dr. Cravon, who, as an enemy during the late
American war, was prejudiced against the head
and leader of the armed Confederates, but daring
a long professional attondauce by the sick bed of
the illustrious prieoner became his friend and ad?
mirer. The style of Dr. Cravon is admirably
clear, unaffected and free from pedantry, and the
scenes he describes, as an eye witness, are so
deeply interesting that they cannot fail to
awaken, throughout the world, the sympathy of
all who appreciate true nobility and undeserved
suffering. I have also been presonted by a friend
with a copy of Dr. Crayon's book, and rogret to
find, ou reading it, that Mr. Davis indulges iu un?
friendly animadversions on those who, at the ter?
mination of the war, thought proper to leave the
I believe that, tlosely confined as he was, Mr.
Davis romained in entire ignorance of tho circum?
stances which made this course on our part not
only correct, but patriotic. But if there are any
who entertain a different opinion, I think I but
respect the feelings of our compatriots abroad,
when I request a suspension of the opinion, until
a release of ( ur ex President from confinement
and his freedom from persecution, shall have ena?
bled us with propriety to defend ourselves; and
should this be not conceded, I for one would pre
for to rose under undeserved censure, rather tuan
add the weight of a feather, to . the oares which
already so cruelly oppress our former Chief.

THE Galveston Civilian denies that profit has
been made in Tesas by introducing the cashmore
goat, remarking as follows :
Now, wo have seen something of tlioao animals
in Texas; and, although they are very pretty to

a man who has made a single dollar from ?
the fleece, though some may have done so. We

The Old New York Steamship Line.
TheNew York Times of the 18th instant, in an
article copied below, mentions a law snit, which is
of large peouniary interest to some of ourfellow
oitizens. These gentlemen were large stock?
holders in the steamships Columbia, Nashville,
James Adger, John P. King, and Marion, several
of which were in the employ of the United States
Government during tho war, under charter from
Messrs. SPOFFORD, TILESTON & Go., the New York
Agout8, and in whioh service the ships made
large sums of money. The stockholders here
claim a settlement whio1, will give them their just
share of such o.irnings, and which in a few cases
will no doubt amount to a fine fortune, if recov?
LITIGATIONS ARISING OUT OF THE REBELLION,
The case of Wintringham vs. Adger, which was
before the Supreme Court a few days since, is an
illustration of the mass of litigation whioh has
arisen out of the rebellion, and which will oooupy
the attention and time of the courts over the
whole land to a very great degree. As near as we
can gather from the facts stated in the affidavits
in the caje, whioh came Up on a motion to open
judgments entered five years ago, the case was
substantially as follows: Previous to the rebellion
there was a valuable line of steamers running be?
tween this city and Charleston, part ot the owners
residing at each end of the route. When the Con-,
fl scat ion Aot began to be enforced here, as a mat?
ti r of course the owners here wore brought to ask
what they should do in reference to the vessels,
ff they did nothing, the interests belonging to the
Southern owners would be seized by the Govern?
ment and confiscated, a proceeding whioh would
not only take away the property from their asso?
ciates, for whom they naturally still felt a friendly
interest, but would be an injury to themselves by
the tying up of the vessels while the confiscation
proceedings wero going on. Doubtless, if they
bad then known what was to be the course of the
war and of matters at the olose of it, they would
have deemed it wiser not to attempt to avoid the
Confiscation Act at all, but to allow the Govern?
ment to secure all the aid which the seizure of
those interests would have afforded. But as mat?
ters then looked,- they determined upon a different
Tho idea suggested itself of having the inter?
ests of tho Southern owners sold under execution
for a small Bum. For this purpose there must be
a suit, and a suit against all the owners was the
best snape to put it in. This was an easy thing
to put on foot.
The vessels wore all tho time in need of sup?
plies, and it was a very simple matter to have
some party who had furnished such supplies com?
mence a suit against all the owners to reoover the
price. No sooner said than done. Suits were
commenced and the summonses served on the
owners here, who immediately, by virtue of their
authority as part owners, employed an attorney
to represent all the owners and offered judgment
for the amounts claimed, and on executions issued
upon these judgments the various steamships
were sold for less than $2000 each (some arrange?
ment being made, of course, to Heep off other
bidders), bought in by the plaintiffs, and at once
transferred by them to the Northern owners.
So far the plan worked wo ll. '/The interests of
the Southern owners being thus disposed of,
there was no confiscation or tying up of the ves?
sels, and they were in position to take their share
of the immense ancTprofltable business whioir war
enjoyed by steamers during the war ia the Gov?
ernment service. But now comes up another as
fieot of the affair. The rebellion being over, and
he Southern owners being thoroughly recon?
structed and having their pardons in their pock?
ets, naturally begin to inquire what became of
their interests in these vessels, and finding that
they were not confiscated, but had passed into
the hands of their co-owners in this manner, they
raise objections to this mode of proceeding, want
their interests handed over to them again, and,
we presume, want their share of the profits earn?
ed by the vessels while in the servioe of the Gov?
ernment to help put down the rebellion. And as
the parties oannot agree about this, the Southern
owners apply to the courts and ask to have the
judgments Bet aside. Whether thoy can succeed
in doing this remains to bo seen. That applica?
tion will bring up the question of the right of a
part owner of a snip to retain an attorney for all
the owners, of the power of the court to open a
judgmont after the lause of five years.and whether
the court will, in its discretion, open a judgment,
which appears to have been given for no more
than waB actually due, and to be regular in form,
merely because of the ulterior results of that
judgment. It will be interesting to see what con?
clusion the courts come to upon these questions.
But that conclusion qan hardly be decisive of the
controversy, which must, if it be contested to the
end, bring up in some Way for decision by a Court
of Equity, the question what were the rights and
duties of the part owners under tho circumstances
in whioh they were placed and what are their
rights and duties now. And if the court shall
hold that the sale did not effect the interests of
the owners as among themselves, but that the
purchase of the vesselB by one was for the benefit
of all, and that tho fact that the claimants were
rebels at the time does not alter the case, we do
not see but they will bo entitled to share in the
profits of tho vessels in aidiug to suppress tho re?
AH we said in the beginning, this is but one in?
stance of the varied litigations whioh must arise
out of the rebellion. The relations between the
North and the South wore so intimate and com?
plicated, and the condition of things during the
rebellion BO anomalous, and the effect of the
rebellion, and of what has transpired since its
suppression, BO doubtful, that the minds of law?
yers and judges are sure to be harassed with new
and intrioate questions arising out of thom for
The Bureau in Texas,
The Bureau in Toxas is a faroe, and to some ox
tent, I fear, is a mischievous one. The State is
utterly unmanageable for Bureau purposes. Its
vast extent places it beyond the roaoh of any or?
dinary mechanism of centralized government. To
attempt to regulate the lab >r question in Texas
by means of a Freedmen's Bureau is very much
like tickling a rhinoceros with a straw. The
stations .are necessarily so far apart, communi?
cation is a work of BO much difficulty, that I am
understating matters whon I say that to half the
colored population of Texas tho Bureau ia utterly
inaccessible. I have conversed with many persons
who have passed through these un bareau pro?
tected districts. My informants, Northern men
and Southern men, one and all, assure me that in
these counties the negroes are working as well, or
better, are as kindly treated and earn as high
wages, as in any other part of the State. I can
answer for other districts where there is a Bu?
reau, and where its maladministration baa re?
sulted in injury to the negro.
The Bureau in Texas is looked upon by the
citizens generally asa planting Bureau, and in
30Q10 districts grave complaints are made of the
manner in which negroes have been kidnapped
from one plantation to be Bot to work on another,
in which an agent of the Bureau is int-rested.
rhe newspapers assert, and public rumor sup?
ports tho assertion, that Gen. Gregory, the late
Assiataut Commissioner of the State, who has re
sently been relieved, is engaged largely in plant?
ing, and the number of his plantations is various?
ly stated at from 15 to 27. It ia strange with
what iteration theao words, "Gen. Gregory'a
plantation," have rung in my ears. It reminds
one of the stratagem of "Puss in Boots," wbo in?
structed every ono to reply, when asked who

Marquis of Carrabas." Meet au oki dalkey on

This (morning Gens.! Steedman and Fullerton
were Bitting in the Bureau here when in came a
fat, old mulatto woman, to complain of injustice)
that had been done her by some other negro on
Gen. Gregory's plantation. This caef- being looked
into, yielded something a little more tangible, bat
not muon so. There was a sou of Gen. Gregory
known to be a partner in the farm, and Gen.
Gregory himself occasionally visited it. Five dif?
ferent plantations in tho neighborhood of How
ton were mentioned to meas being Gen. Gregory'?
plantations; yet no one brought forward any legal
proof to sustain these assertions, a id all tue Bu?
reau agents the O immissioners have examined,
state positively th*t Gen. Gregory is not, to th?
best of their knowledge, interested ia anv planta?
tions at all. Thus the matter stands. Who caa
unravel it? Some Puss in Boots has certainly
been along and set down all these farms to tho
Marquis of Oarrabas.
