New York, Junt 3.-Franlx
II. iValwonh, aged ninetepn,
shot and killed his father,
Mansfield Wuiworlh, in the
Siurtevant liouse this murning.
Ihe deceased was an author,
and boarded in the Siurtevant
Liouse, away from iiu family.
Doruesiic trouble ia the assign
ed cause of the tragedy. Young
vVul worth, who live, at baralo
ga, directly alter the shooting,
went to ihe twenty-ninth Pre
cinct Police Station and sur
rendered:, ;"-rl
lie Icllo tho lollowrfffe' otwi.r
concerning the shooting and
its causes which led thereto:
"I reBide with my mother in
Saratoga, New York, lather
having parted from her some
year., ago. My father is an au
thor, and I have been studying
law. 1 Ihiuk my father is about
forty-one years old, but do not
know where he was born. My
father has not lived -with my
mother since we lei t here, three
years ago, but he has repeat
lv sent us threatening and in
sulting letters. It is only a
short time ago since he threat
ened lo snoot my mother and
myself. 1 shotliini because of
this. Not long ago I met him
in the street in Saratoga, and I
then told him that if he did not
keep away from us, or insulted
my mother any more, I
would 6hoot him. I told
him there were bounds which I
would not allow any mat to go
beyond with impunity, and es
pecially when my mother was
being insulted. I went to his
house yesterday, and left a note
lor him to call on me, which he
did this morning. Wnen lie
came in the room I drew out a
revolver and told him to prom
tse me that he would not
Uneaten or insult us any more,
which he promised. Shortly
afterward we began speaking
ol iamily matterii, and he used
some very insulting language,
aud put his hand in his pocket
as though to draw out a pistol,
when I shot him. Lie then
came toward me and I fired
three other bhotu at h'.m. When
1 fired the last chut al him he
had me by the collar. I only
regret this on account ol the efT
lect it will have on my family.
I. would like Judge Barbour to
know this, us he was iuterested
in the C4"e belore."
Dr. Marsh did not find any
pistol in the pockets of the de
ceased, but lound a note left for
him by his son in his breast
pocket. The lollowing is a copy
oi ihe note:
"Three o'clock 1 want to
try and settle some family mat
ters. Call at StuTtevap, House
' taw. -v a,.
afttr an hour or two. If lam
oot there, 1 will leave word at
the office. F. II. Walworth."
Coroner Young committed
the murderer to the Tomb
until such time as the inquest
lakes pl.ee. .
Mr. Walworth wai a son of
Ihe late Chancellor Walworth,
one of the most distinguished
citizens of this State, and a
roan identified with the great
Temperance Tract and Bible
Societies. The Chancellor died
in 18C7, aged 80. A brother ol
the deceased is a popular and
eloquent mission preacher ol
the Ritualists, whose .religious
house is in Fifty ninth street,
west of Central Park. The
family -bis been largely iden
tified with the most prom
inent interests, in this Slate in
tbej judiciary, in the church,
and in education and literature,
and have wide and inflnential
connections.
Mr. Walworth was born in
Albany in 1830. He was edu
cated for the legal profession,
and after being admitted to the
bar, assisted his father for a
short, time in his office at Al
bany, Jbut the profession being,
distasteful he soon turned his
attention to literature. Mr.
Walworth married some years
ago, and the result of thai
union is two daughters, now be
tween twelve and fourteen
years, and the son by whom he
lost his life. lie has been sep
arated from his wile some
years, and that lady is now
keeping an excellent seminary
for young ladies on the estate
ol Chancellor Walworth, at
Saratoga Springs, where she is
living in elegant style.

A Story of Belmont.
Speaking of Bankers (says
the New York correspondent
of the St. Louis Globe) I am re
minded as the great and good
Abraham Lincoln was so fond
of saying, ol a little story: Au
gust Belmont supposed to be
somewhat irrascible at times,
had not long ago a private
secretary, to whom he some
times showed his unamiability.
One morning, in his Wall
street office, the eminent bank
er picked up a letter his secre
tary bad written, and, not find
ing it satisfactory, exclaimed
With much temper, "This is
wrong again. D it. I have
often told you exactly how
these letters should be written."
"Mr. Belmont," remarked the
scribe, rising from his seat, "I
do my duly faithlul!yk and my
salary is not large enough to
enuble me to afford to do my
work and be sworn at besidos."
"Uowmuch do you get?" quoth
Belmont. Fifteen hundred
dollars," was ihe answer.
'Draw 3,000 and do the work
as I want ill" Since then the
salary has been regularly paid,
and Belmont swears at his sec
retary as much as he likes. Tho
report that the banker wished
to withhold $750 for not in
dulging in the luxury of pro
fanity during a six months'
absence in E.irope, is I am au
thonzedto say, wholly with
out foundation.
Anecdote of General Jackson.
Men of the highest repute
and of the nicest sense of hon
or get their notions of right
and wrong sadly confused un
der the temptations of Ihe
race-course, A more chivalric.
high toned, and gallant gentle
man than General Jackson did
not live among his cotempo-
. .A. , r! yi a eieey we.
current in Tennessee, some fif
ty years ago whether true or
false I am unable to say
which goes to show that even
he was strongly suspected of
playing his game with the "ad
vantages," in the dainty phra
seology of the spirting men.
The story ran in this wise:
The General became discon
tented with a mulatto bov,
who hud been his favorite ri
der, and sold him to a neigh
bor who wat his great rival on
the turf. The boy was to ride
in a very important race
against a favorite horse of the
