A "whito man" wended his dovious way,
on Saturday night lost, to tho abode of his
black paramour, in a loose-jointed stato of in
toxication. IIo was tery drunk, and, there
fore, very cordial. The sooty wench, touched
by a little self respect, ejected the "gentle
man" from her domic!!, giving him in the
scuffle a moderately black eye. Poor follow,
we are so sorry for bfrn.
Tbojob office of the 'Bulletin' has been so
nearly re-established as to enable us to accomo

Wo thercforo invito favors in that line, prom

For the finer work required by banking

About 3 o clock this morning our citizens
were aroused from their slumber by a violent
alarm of fire, rang out by all tho Are bells of
the city. Hundreds of persons hurried to tho
streets, but discovering no evidences of fire In
any part of tho city, returned to their couches
fully pursuaded that the alarm was a falso
one, falso although long continued and per
sistent It was not false, however, for a
watchman connocted with tho transit wharf
boat had detected fire in tho kitchen of the
St. Charles Hotel, and made his discovery
known. The kitchen is a two story brick ad
dition, standing at right angles with the Soc
ond street L, and is nearly concealed by the
ovor-towerlng walls of the main building.
For this roason, and because it caught on the
inside, citizens at a dlstanco waro uaablo to
locate tho sceno of tho fire. Tho Rough and
Ready and the Arab firo companies found
tho place, however, without any difficulty,
and water being handy they were soon play
ing upon it with excellent effect. Indued, it
was the work of only a few minutes to drown
tho fire entirely out. This done, it was dis
covered that the inside of the building had
suflTered sovorely, the wood work and plaster
ing being in part destroyed, and a sad havoc
mado with the contents. The walls stand un
injured. Tho total low may bo et down at
from $1,000 to $1,600, the whole amount bo
ing covered by Insurance.
Wilcox & Co, havo our congratulations
that tho conflagration was not more sweeping.
Tho reality is bad onougb, but when we pic
ture what it might hare been, wo feel more
liko extending congratulations than words of
sympathy and condolence. Tho damago will
bo speedily repaired, the guests of the St."

mentally, nothing of tho hubbub occasioned
in tho kitchen,
Notwithstanding the partial destruction of
the kitchen of the St. Charles Ilotol, its fur

and ilvo o'clock this morning, the guests of
the establishment found breakfast upon the
table at tho usual time, soven o'clock, the

related an. interesting reminiscence or toe
death of General Kearny, of which sad event
ho was an eye witness. "Tho gallant Kearny,"
bo said, "received his death w.ound from n
private in my command, and twhcn be fell
from his horse, I hastened, with many others,
to tho point whero he lay, not supposing that
his wound was a mortal one. Just as wo
reached his body, however, bis limbs gavo
one convulsive quiver, and then all was over.
Seeing that he was a Major-Goneral, word was
sent to headquarter to that effect, and Gen-
.Oral uaCKJOH CUIUIUK IV tuoijiut iiuiutuiami;,
gave ono glanco at tho dead officer's features,
who you havo' killed ? You havo shot tho
most gallant officer in tho United States

tarily lifted his hat, every officer In tho
group following his example, and for a mo
ment revorontlal silence was observed by all.
Subsequently the body of tho dead soldier
was placed upon .two boards, and when being
removed to headquarter, wa followed by
Gen. Jackson, Gen. Ewell, and other officers,
while a regimental band preceded it, playing
a dead march." Newark (N. J.) Courier.
