A3 the more recent defalcations in j
Wall street do not greatly exceed three j
hundred thousand dollars per day, the j
people of New York have for some j
?lays past directed their attention to ]
furious'newspaper war which is being ?
waged against thc impenetrable James
Gordon Sennett by that very famous
musical director, Max Maretzek, of
the New York Academy of Music
Max having reason to suspect thc
astute Bennett with having sinister j
designs upon his opera troupe and its
anticipated performances this winter,
has pounced upon him with immense
but most indiscreet fury, and thus far
seems to have the inside track; but
we have great faith in Bennett event?
ually flooring his adversary. We have
in our day seen a vast number of as?
saults made upon that experienced
and tough old badger, but we have
never yet known him to bo whipped
iii the long run. Before tho fight is
over, he invariably gives a shaip snap
or venomous bite, which makes Iiis
opponent howl with pain and bear the
murks of thc "punishment*" to his
In the present instance, we have the
fiery and impetuous Maretzek raining
his blows upon the head of bis adver?
sary at the most fearful rate. He even
has the unblushing audacity" to make
out a black mail account against the j
Herald, in which a large number i>i \
suspicious items are grouped togeth ;r
in the most business-like manner, and,
sis Mr. Mantileni would have said, the
"deinned total" foots up ?1-4,001), to
the great prima facie discredit of the
JIarald. Max evidently thinks that he
has demolished Bennett, for that pa?
tient and meek philosopher takes it
all as coolly as a duck would a slight
shower after a long drought. He lias,
in reality, felt it no more than a griz?
zly bear would a load of partridge
shot at forty, paces. He probably
rather enjoys the violent excitement
of his adversary, as a hedge hog'does
the babied rage of a dog. But does
any one suppose that poor Max "will
not "catch it" in due season? It may
not suit Bennett to hit him to-day, or.
to-moftow, or next week, or next
mouth, but lie has a good memory
about trifles, always manages to ba?
lance accounts, and when thc indis?
creet Max Ls entirely oil his guard,
and has exposed some very vital and j
sensitive point, the venerable * "James
Gordon, with a vigor beyond his
years, will improve the occasion and
give the ?Horesaid Maretzek a thrust
so quick, keen, sharp, dee}) and hor?
ribly painful that he will bellow like
the most vigorous of the bulls of
Basham. If Bennett was either sen?
sitive or humane, he would pitt the
enraged musician "out of his misery
now," but he prefers playing with
. him as a cat does with a mouse, and
weeks henee we shall hear a growl and
then a squeak of mortal agony, and
everybody will say old grimalkin Ben?
nett has squelched that foolish .mouse
Maretzek, and such will be the fact.
"Ten to one on Bennett."
Advices from Nashville, dated Au?
gust 24, says;
Yesterday morning, Maj. Baker, of
Gen. Wheeler's staff, challenged Col.
Blackburn, which was promptly de?
clined. Gen. Doolittle, hearing of
the affair, ordered Maj. Baker and
Col. Woodfolk, who( carried the mes?
sage, to leave the city by 12 o'clock,
which order was promptly obeyed.
DESTITUTION IN CHARLESTON.-Tho
Philadelphia inquirer publishes the
following extract from a private letter
received in that city from a Sister of
Charity, dated Charleston, South Ca?
rolina, July 7:
Many hundreds of the citizens who
have been accustomed to all the luxu?
ries of life have been compelled to sue
foj and live on Government rations.
Even 1 hese have been stopped. Could
you but see these delicate ladies in
houses void of furniture, reduced to
the wash-tub and cook-pot, your heart
would bleed; still more when you
reflect they have no means of procur?
ing the bare necessaries of life. A
few who were in business before and
during the war are making attempts
to regain a footing", but the planting
population around Charleston arc
destitute of everything.
God alone knows the full tide of
misery which has set in on these peo?
ple. We see a part of it but not all.
Still, if we were made the medium of
assistance to them, we could reach thc
bulk. We invite the co-operation of
your citizens in this work for the
relief of these people, who will inevi?
tably die of starvation if not assisted.
This ?3 a cause of humanity, therefore
persons of all opinions may unite in
*** . * "
I hope this appeal will not bo in
vain, and that you will be able to for?
ward, ere long, proofs of the good
will of your city for suffering wher?

NOT VERY FRIENDLY.-Judging from
the following it appears that some of
the Northern people don't love the
negro so extraordinary well, after alk
The Louisville Democrat, speaking of
affairs in Indiana, says:
"At latest accounts, negroes were
fleeing from Evansville in all direc?
tions, being fearful of being killed by
tho citizens. The citizens beat them
wherever they can catch them, and
they seem determined, since thc bru?
tal outrage of two negroes upon the
person of a white lady on .Sunday, to
rid the city entirely of them. On
Monday night, a crowd made a rush
for the steamer Carrie to clean out the
negroes, but fortunately they were
nun cst. The wildest excitement pre?
vailed when the Lady Grace left there.
She arrived here yesterday, and re?
ports that the negroes are scared
almost out of their wits. They are
coming away on boats and taking to
We learn that the military authori?
ties were attempting tc put a stop to
the proceedings o? the mob. Several
negroes have been killed or hung, and
an order has been issued compelling
all the negroes to leave the town, and
ail persons who have them in their
employ are ordered to discharge and
drive them from their premises."
If this had occurred in a Southern
State, thc Northern papers would have
sent a terrible howl of indignation.
ETERNITY.-When we are alone, an
hour past midnight, in the streets of
a sleeping city, everything around us
appears as if hewn in the adamant of
