[Special Correspondence of the Penny Press.]
Letter from New York.
NEW YORK, August 24, 1859.
Editob Penmy Pkrss: I promised to write
to tho Penny Preu I write. Left Cincinnati
tome lime this month, and arrived at Cleveland
on the day of starting. Nothing of interest on
the way, except the arrest at Delaware of a
young piokpocket, for practising professionally
upon the pocket of a wayfaring otd lady. The
young man was hurried to the prison; we were
hurried to the North, and the transaction hur
ried from our memories.
In all of my route to the oity of Gotham, I
met nowhere so mnoh dust at in Northern
Ohio regular Glddings' dust, literally and
technically jnt soil flying in all directions.
On arriving at Cleveland found dust in my
eyes, nose, mouth, behind my ears, down my
throat, and dust in my hair would have made
one large lump of very respectable tooth pow
ders. Took the boat at Cleveland, at nine
o'olock at night beautiful moon-light night
left the dock under a shower of rockets all in
honor of your correspondent, so I supposed,
and not learning to the contrary, am still enjoy
ing the blessed Illusion. The boat, as usual,
sailed noiselessly over the bosom of the Lake.
At bed-time I retired with two strangers in our
state-room with three births, tried infinitely
hard to sleep, but at the approach of the god,
he was transformed into pickpocket with a
dagger, the handle of which was toward his
hand, and the glistening blade toward my
visionary throat; yet after awhile I did sleep,
and "dreamt that I dwelt In marble halls,"
which, however, was not the faot awoke to
find the steamer approaching Buffalo. Here
my business commenced, the material part
being to look over the various exchanges from
the inland oounties of the State of New York.
With much ditBonlty I suocooded in getting an
opportunity to thank the good editors for their
kindness. A strict business habit has driven
the soul completely out of the bodies of the
newspaper men in the State of New York.
They gruffly point to the exohanges, resume
their pen, take no farther notice, and when
yon have completed your research, it is useless
to attempt to oatch their eye for the purpose of
returning thanks. It is so throughout this
wnoie stale. x lelt their rooms always feeling
like an unwelcome visitor. I grant that the
duties of an Editor are such, that often the
seeker of accommodations is an intruder, yet
can not admit that a swimming in current
items will of itsolf rob man of his politeness.
The Penny Preu has no such conductors. The
leading points of notice in this State, are as
follows: Blondin, at Niagara; Beecber, (not
walking tight-ropes,) in tha North; New York
and Erie Railroad and its new Receiver; Dem
ocratic Conventions, and the immense demand
tor the Penny Pre. Kespeotiully.
A. PIERRE.
Glorious Record.
a
a
a
We give below an interesting statement of
the services of the soldiers now living iu tho
State of Ohio, whose names are upon the roll
of the Pension Ollice:
James McDermut, now livine in Ohio, en
listed for three years, in 1117, at Easton,
Pennsylvania, and inarched to a rendezvous
near fronton, New Jersey, and thence to
Gormantown, Pennsylvania During this
period, was in several sktrmisnos with tho
enemv. but tha einrflcemnnt nt ftrrninnrnu-n
was the first regular battle he was in. Soon
nftor, returned to Trenton, and was occupied
at intervals in pursuing and harrassing the
jiriMBD una nessians, as wen as avenging me
merconary depredations and cruelties com
mitted, upon tno inhabitants of New Jersey.
Was one of the actors in the battle of Monmouth,
when the excessive heat of tho sun,
combined with the dust and smoko of the
contest, and the too free use of cold water,
caused so much suii'ering as well as death to
many of the combatants. This soldier was
under the immediate command of Colonel
Seeley, and woll recollects the undaunted
courage and untiring activity displayed
during tho battle by him and Gon. Forman,
and the conspicuous manner in which both
passed along the lines several times to ani
mate the soldies.
Adam Link, now in Ohio, entered the reg
ular service in 1777. His father, a bold,
tearless man, bad settled in Washington
County, Pennsylvania, and in opposition to
the advice of friends, on the extreme borders
of civilization, near the Virginia line. Being
thus exposed to the subtle dangers which
then surrounded a frontier life, in the vicinity
of Indians unfriendly to the whites, Adam
acquired in the hardships and' dangers of
Doraer wariare an experience wnicn fitted
him for future service in the cause of his
country, as woll as to assist in the protec
tion of the property and the lives of tho
family.
Immediately upon the commencement of
hostilities, the Indians made a descent upon
the settlement, captured his father, then mur
dered and soalped him, burnt the house and
barn, destroyed a large field of corn, one hun
dred hogs, forty sheep, all the cattle and
horses, and three hundred bushels of wheat.
From this period, the family, from having en
joyed an unusual amount of wealth and inde
pendence, were at once depressed into poverty,
and suffered great privation and danger daring
the remainder of the war.
At the time of his enlistment under Captain
Mason, so well was he known, as to cause this
remark to be made of him : "He is a good
marksman, and will now have a chance to try
his skill." At different periods, he served in
the garrison at Wheeling, Moore, Dements,
and Shepherd Forts, and acted as Indian Spy,
as well as Bcouting along the frontier ; was at
Wheeling Garrison when Captain Mason was
shot through the hips.
John Strait (now in Ohio) entered the Rhode
Island line in 1775, oommanded by Colonel
Varnum; has served under Generals Green and
Sullivan; was in the regiment that landed on
the island and marehed against the British
Fort on Butt's Hill, but found that it wag
Washington Constitution.
Sad Casualty in Bainbridge—Danger
of Playing with a Gun.
it
Yesterday morning a ladson of Bird Per
kins, of Bainbridge, was out in the woods
shooting, and met with another boy with whom
he had a misunderstanding. They revived the
dispute and .clinched, still holding on to the
gun between them, and, while writhing and
turning, the gun went off. It happened that
the firing previously had attracted the attention
of two. little sons of Gideon G. Kent, and they
had gone out to see what was doing. Arriving
just as the souffle commenced, they oautioned
the other boys not to scuffle with the gun in
their hands, and sat down on a log some dis
tance off. When the gun discharged, the
whole contents struok one of those boys that
were looking on, hitting him in the abdomen,
and wounding him so that he died in about
hours. His name was Franois Kent, and
Cleveland Plain
Dealer.
Ship' oh Fire at Sia, Captain Pariz,
the Italian bark Oiulia, arrived at New York
on Monday, reports that, on the 7th of Au
giidt, when in latitude 29 20, longitude 43 48,
&w a large black ship on Art, and nearly
burnt to the water's edge, apparently an
American vessel, and loaded. Same time
aw a ahip which was supposed to have taken
off the crew, and was steering toward Ber
muda. The vessel's name could not be as
certained. The only living thing to be seen
on board the burning ship was a cat hanging
in the fore-rigging.
The Mammoth Steamship Great Eastern
—Her Engines in Motion.
London Timet gives a long account of
the banquet on board the mammoth steamship
Ureal haHcrn, on the 7th instant, in honor of
her final completion. Speeohes were made by
Sir Charles Napier, Lord Stanley, J. R. Camp
bell, the Managing Director, and several Mem
bers of Parliament. The rimes pronounces
the ship to be the finest spcoimen of naval ar
chitecture that ever floated, and adds :
The screw engines have four cylinders of
eighty-four inohes diameter, and four feet
stroke. The oylinderi are capable of being
worked together, or separately. When work
ing forty-five strokes a minute, with steam on
at fifteen pounds, and cutting off at one-third
of the stroke, these engines give an indicated
power of four thousand four hundred horses ;
but at fifty-five strokes a minute, steam on at
twenty-five pounds, and cutting off at one
quarter of the stroke, the power will reach to
six thousand five hundred horses. Thus
the united efforts of both sorew and pad
dle engines, will drive the immense vessel
throngh the water with a power of no less
than twelve thousand horses. What fleet
oonld stand in the way of suoh a mass,
weighing some thirty thousand tuns, and
driven through the water by twelve thousand
horse-power at the rate of twenty-two or
twenty-three miles an hour? The screw-on-gine
boilers are in three distinot sets. Their
weight is three hundred and sixty-two tuns,
and their capacity for water, two hundred and
seventy tuns. The probable consumption of
coal when both eoginos are at full work, will
average two hundred and fifty tuns per day.
The cellular compartments at the bottom of the
ship will be used for pumping water into her,
instead of ballast, and as the webs subdividing
these are made perfectly water-tight, any one
or any number can be filled at pleasure Steam
was got np ia the paddle engines at half-past
one. At mat time an tne visitors were on
board, and the engine-room and batches, in
spite of the heat, wore crowded with eager
lookers-on.
The first movement of the gigantic cranks
and cylinders of the paddlo-ongincs was
made precisely at half-past one, when the
great masses slowly rose and fell as noise
lessly as the engines of a Greenwich bont,
but exerting in their great revolutions what
seemed to be an almost irresistible power.
There was no noise, no vibration, nor the
slightest sign of heating, and tho tremen
dous frame of iron-work Bprnng at once into
life and motion with as much easoos if every
rod and crank had been worked for tho last
ten years. The slcam in the boilors was
about twenty-ono pounds, but as a matter of
course, tho engines were turned but slowly,
never exceeding six revolutions per minute.
Even with this slow motion, and the slight
immersion of tho pnddle-lloata, tho effect of
the enormous power was nt once visible upon
the ship.
The great mooring chains astern were
tightened to the utmost, and it seemed as if
even Trotmnn's anchors themselves would
yield under tho strain. Fortunatoly, how
ever, these held fast, and then the screw en
gines wero got into motion, working the ship
astern, so as to counteract tho effect of the
paddle. These latter engines worked with
the same marvelous case and freedom; there
was no noise, no sign of hot hearings, and
the result was considered by all the engineers
on noara to oe satisiactory in tno very high
est decree, and far boyonil what could have
been expected.
Extraordinary Determination to Die—
Extraordinary Determination to Die— Suicide in a Gutter.
A desperate suicide was perpetrated in New
Orleans, on Monday week, by a Frenchman
named Constant Corteaud, thirty-three years of
age, living on Laharps-street, between Prieur
and Roman, Third District. He had for some
time been afflicted with insanity; had but re
cently been discharged from the Lunatio Asy
lum; and 8inoe returning to live with his wife,
had brought about his old spell by a too free
indulgence in liquor, which had been their
original cause Tho Creteent says:
At ten o'clock, having retired to bed, he
sprang up with fearful screams, saying that
hit enemies were after him; and to the great
terror of bis wife, he seized a knife and began
trying to stab himsolf. Mrs. Corteaud sprang
to him, and succeeded iu gotting the knife
from him. IIo ran from the house and plnnged
into the gutter, which, wide and deep, was
full of the day's rain. His wife oried for
help; a neighbor, Mr. Fonoade, camo, and the
two succeeded in dragging the maniao from
the gutter and taking him into the house.
His wife left him temporarily in Poncade's
charge, while she went to get something to
fasten the door; during her absence the maniao
seized Fonoade, overpowered him and ran from
the bouse and plunged into the gutter a second
time.
Again he was pursued, but bis poor wife was
powerless from fright and exoitenient, and
Fonoade's unaided efforts failed to drag him
out till after he had succeeded in drowning
himself. His determination to die or to hide
himself from his Imaginary enemios, was, in
deed, extraordinary. The second time he
plunged into the gutter he ducked his bond un
der, and it was found that he bad kept it under
by firmly grasping the grass and weeds at the
sides and holding himself under.
of
A Toi'OH Darkiy. At Cleveland, on Mon
day, while a number of workmen were hoisting
a barrel of linseed-oil to place on board a ves
sel, something in the tackle gave way, letting

darkey who was in the hold. All supposed he
was killod, bnt he escaped with a few slight
cuts and a scare. His head proved too hard
for the vessel, knooking both ends out, and
so completely enveloping him that it had to
be knocked to pieces to release him. While
the wonnds on bis cranium were being dressed
he remarked, "Gor a mighty, guess dis 'ere
darkey don't want any mors lie on his bar."
So little was he damaged by the blow that the
fellow went to work again the tame day.

Adventure of a Sea Captain—
Washed Overboard and Swims Ten
Miles.
The Norfolk Day Booh of Monday says :
Captain John Doughty, of Cobb's Island,
Northampton, Va., was washed overboard op
posite the new Light-house, on Smith's Island,
when about five miles at sea, in a north-east
storm, on Tuesday last, the 10th inst.,'at five
o'clock in the morning. He swam to Smith's
Island and attempted to land, and was unable
to do so on aooount of the heavy breakers. lie
then swam to the southern end of the Island,
and was in the breakers for four hours, whioh
were continually breaking over him, and
washed him nearly to the bottom; about this
time ho caught a small piece of drift wood,
which was insufficient to sustain him, but as
sisted him in keeping above water. He lashed
himself to this stiok with his cravat, which was
toon chafed in two he was then left unsup
ported. About tb's time a sohooner hove in
sight, and came within a half mile of him. He
then swam np North Channel and attempted to
land on William Knight's Shoals. A strong
current, however, frustrated his efforts here,
and he then swam up and attempted to land on
Linnen Bar, and was again prevented by the
current.
The foroo of this current kept him in North
Channel until he reached Chesapeake Bay.
After getting well inside tho Capes, he was
picked ud at one o'olock P. M.. off Fisherman's
inlet, by Captain Conklin, of the sohooner
, and was taken into Alexandria. When
rescued he was almost exhausted, and it is
supposed be could not have lived more than
fifteen minutes longer. This is the most re
markable case on record, for any one acquainted
with the coast will admit that he must have
swam from ten to fifteen miles. Captain
Bougty arrived here in the Jenny f.lnd, Captain
Wm. McCown, yesterday, and ieftfor home in
the steamer Coffee, this morning, where he will
appear like one risen from the dead, since it
was reported that he was drowned. It was a
fortunate circumstance that the tide was run
ning in at the time, for had it set the other way
ne wouia nave been earned out to sea and lost
forever.
