Mr. Rend is n first-class fraud. Jiofore

newspaper correspondent, and Intimated
that ho would llko to go down tho river on
her for tlio purpoo of wrlfng up tho re

given In honor of tho boat on her arrival
at Hulenn. At first the ofllcers wero In-
cllne.l to ticcept his proposition, nnd

Ctiro they became convinced that -nr.
Read wns not what ho represented himself
to be, nnd Informed him Hint If ho wished
to go down on their boat lio would havo lo
pay his furo the snino as any other passeng
er. Ho came down with the monoy, nnd
paid hU passngi to Memphis. Tho nest
wo hear of him Is nt tho latter place, and
havo reason to believe that ho has added
Tin: RUI.I.F.TIN to tho list of nowspapers
for which ho claims lo be travelling cor

that Mr. Chas. II. Read Is in no way what
