THE VALVE OFNEOHO TESTIMONY.
Thc Athens (Georgia) Watchman says
that thc other clay :i gentleman in
that vicinity, being greatly provoked
at the insolence of a negro woman,
administered to her, in the presence
of two negro men, a sound flogging.
She forthwith reported the case to tho
provost marshal. But while she was
absent on this mission, the gentleman
aforesaid remarked to the freedmen
that he would be arrested ami fined
heavily unless they would relieve him,
which they could do by swearing that
he did not strike the woman a blow.
This they agreed to do, if ho would
pay them a half dollar a piece in
silver. He was soon waited upon by
a file of soldiers, and required to
appear at headquarters immediately,
which he did, taking his witnesses
along with him. He was arraigned
for assault and battery, and at once
introduced his two witnesses, who,
beiug sworn, testified he had not j
touched the woman! Of course, he
was discharged, and the woman se- I
verely reprimanded. After thc ne- j
groes had left the office, the goi Me- !
mau stated the ease to the marshal, !
mst as it actually occurred-assuring j
him that he dill not employ the w?t- ?
nesses to screen himself from punish- ,
mont, but solely for the purpose of
illustrating the value of negro suf- !
THE PROFITS or THE ExmiEss BCSI- \
NESS.-A letter from New York, dated ?
October 3, says:
The profitableness of the express
business has been newly illustrated
this week by the declaration of a
handsome extra dividend, over which
the lucky shareholders of the Ameri?
can Express Company's stock are re?
joicing considerably. This company
Haid in 18G4 dividends on a capital of
$2.000,000, amounting to thirty-eight
per cent, in cash, and fifty per cent,
in pai'.i-up stock. On the capital,
thus increased to $3,000,000. it lias
alreac1 . declared, iii ist;."), cash divi?
dends of twenty-six per cent., and
twenty-five per cent, within thc com?
ing tour months. What wonder,
then, that-tho stock of this institution
is marketable at three times its value?
And of what use is it to dabble in the
Wall street "fancies," when fortunes j
eau so much more easily and speedily ;
be realized by permanent investments j
in concerns whose operations are as !
money-making and as sure as gold- j
HAIU>LT THE FAIR THING.-The j
statement purporting to be a list of
the names of the subscribers in Eng
land to the rebel loan has been proved j
to be a hoax. Yet some of our news- ?
papers, instead of denouncing the
forgery as an outrage against truth,
seem rather sorry to be obliged to
forego thc opportunity of assaulting
the alleged subscribers to th* loan.
They do not seem to caro so much for
the truth as they do for gratifying
their spleen, and instead of apologis?
ing for doing iujustice to the gentle?
men whose names are so unwarranta?
bly connocie 1. they make their denials
the cause of comments meant to be
injurious t.? their character.

Ono v?f the New York Custom
rlousi (?iii.-ors gave up his place,
Wednesday, and asked Collector King
to give it to a one armed soldier; and
another resigned and asked that tho
former occupant of the place, just
home from the Avars, might have it.
So there is patriotism among office?
holders-even at Now Norie.
In Boston, thc constabulary are
shutting up all the drugstores, barbe
shops and eating houses on Sunday.
THE CLUB SYSTEM IN* ST. PETEKS
BXTRG.-In Russia they have curried
the cltib system far beyond what even
they have dono in England. There
are clubs for ladies, and clubs for ser?
vants-and a cook recently gave his
master notice, because he was not
allowed to go to his club. Ju;;t now
St. Petersburg is full of a very un?
pleasant piece ol scandal about one
of the indies" clubs. At these institu?
tions, card-playing is forbidden, and
so, for want of better employment,
lotteries have come into fashion. At
the club referred to a certain lady of
rank had won over, either by love or
money, the servant whose duty it was
tc ascertain the winning number*? in
thc: lottery, and to read them aloud.
He placed himself behind this lady's
chair, and always informed her be?
forehand of the lucky numerals. But
he overacted his part. His patroness
always won, and so the suspicions of
the losers were excited, the treachery
was discovered, and the noble lady
was compelled to leave not only tho
chili, but St. Petersburg.
The public debt statement, for Oc?
tober, shows a reduction of $4,000,000
during the month. Government has
on hand $34,500,000 of coin. There
is a reduction in the legal tender circu?
lating notes of $41,500,000.
