Mr. Chas. A. Jocelyn outers a general
denlnl to the charges of dishonesty pre
ferred against him by Lieut, J. II. II,
Wlseheart through yesterday's 'Bulletin.'
He acknowledges that ho Is Lieut. W's
debtor, but denies that ho ollcred a piano

was hurt at Cape Girardeau, and can If
uecestary, produce the certificates of tho
attending physician, and the sisters who
nursed him As to the chargo of larceny,
ho defies Lieut. Wlseheart or any body
elso to establish it. He Is here, and says
that ho holds hlmsosf ready to answer
this and every other charge of dishonest
dealing. And so on, ttcetera.
But what ho denies and what he de
