John, one of the 'ait voune men that abound in.toatmelrorjalifa. Jlhe husband and parents of the lady were al most lranuo ainer aisappearance, and Mew York detectives were dispatched in pursuit of the couple. V i A faw days ago one of the oOcen arrived in tbia city and called on the Chief of Police. He' stated that he had been orer almost all of the Weat, where it wa3 probable the parties would go, but finding no traces ho returned home. He left, however, the miniature! of the lovers with Chief McDonough, so that he might recog ai;e and arrest them should they came to this city. Saturday the Chief received InfomiaUoU . mat itu aim 10 suspect ine coupie were among ) the passengers on the steamer Maukcyt Slate, just arrived from St. Paul, and detectives .Welsh tjnd Eagan were dispatched withtho miuiataro U If 1114 Ullb. At Baraum's Hotel they learned that a gen- I tic man and lady, answering to the description, had taken rooms, with the intention of starting the next day for Chicago. On further inquiry they became convinced thev had found the Dar- ties, apd so reported at headquarters. The phief at once proceeded to Barnum's, knocked at the door of the suspected room, and recog- j uiiing the person who opened it as the fasci- i nating Mr, St. John, at once addressed him by that name. ' The youth, was at first disposed to deny his 1 identity, but finding it useless, confessed tu the i family cognomen, and introduced the abscond ing wife to his unwelcome visitor. They wore bpth at pnee taken ipto pqstody, apd Newton spent the' balance of th,e day in q rqtqantic a place as the calaboose. When he came forth In the erenipg to more pleasant quarters, his personal appearance, to say the .least, was not as impressive as when stopping at Barnum's. Mrs. Scott, who is nineteen years of age, and remarkably interesting in appearance, was sent to a private house, where she will remain until her parents or someo(fieers arrive from ifew York. The lady stated that when they left Now lorn, tney tooK tee cars at Jersey Uty ana ftenf to Philadelphia, shopping at the Conti nental Hotel, Prom there tbey started for the West, going to Milwaukee and St. Paul, where ttey stayed six days. They there took passage for this city, intending to go next to Chicago, where, their money being nearly gone, they would procure a livelihood as they best might. Previous to starling on their journey, Mrs. Scqtt drew frofq a pank, where she had a de posit, the sum of $300. Only f 31 of this is now left, Mr. St. John having tbo misfortune to be without funds when commencing the jour ney, and not having received any since. The truant wile bad jewelry to the value of about fi teen hundred dollars, and a great quantity of fine clothes in her trunks. These would probably bave been sacrificed when the money was spent. She stated that it was useless to tako her back to New York and the home of her husband, as, added to the shame of facing those she had injured, she loved the man with whom she had led, and was determined to live with him. She eagerly plead to be allowed to Bhare his imprisonment When he was first locked up in tbo culaboose. Chief McDonough telegraphed the news of the atrest to tne lady's friends, and tbey will probubly arrive on Monday to tako her back to the home which she deserted. What will bo come of Mr. Newton St. John, who has both a moustache and side whiskers, has not been de termined. -rrww"-"- GOME OF THE KILLED AND KfcBLLS.

The following is a list of killed ar,d wounded in the Macon (Ga.) Guard: ' No officer was killed. Killed Leonidas Lamar, Walter 0. Allen, J. M. Jones, W. Garey. Wmmded Slightly Third Lieutenant E. A.

Ainsirorth, in the bowels. Several others were slightly wound ed, but to a degree pot wprth mentioning. An estimate of the killed and wounded, bv the chief military surgeon at Gen, Beauregard's headquarters, on the part of our army, places the atpount at 300 to 400 killed, and 1,000 to 1,200 wounded, A number of onr slain heroes were brought by the cars to receive from their friends the honors of sepulture. 1 he remains of brave, and some of them distinguished men, wero there. A funeral cortege was formed., and es corted, the hearses containing the remains of General Bartow, of Georgia, and General Bee, and Lieut, Col. Johnson, of South Carolina, to the Capitol building. Governor Smith's regiment, the Virginia forty-ninth, was in the thickest of the fight, and all of his companies suffered considerably. His own horse was Btruck by a ball. His idiutant Lieut CMeh Srnith, was wounded. Lieut, Ward, commanding a Fauquier company, was killed, as wero also a number of his men, besides others, who were wounded. Col. E. C. Carring ton, ot Washington City, formerly of Virginia, was.ono of the prisoners taken in the battle fit Sundav last. Lieut. Col. Montgomery Gardner (former! ot tnu united mates Army, and attacneu to tho first independent regiment of Georgia, of which Gen. Bartow was previously Colonel) was slightly wounded in the leg, and had his horse shot from underbid). An Unreasonable Request. When the United States army started for Utah, there was a scarcity ol transportation, or, in olner words, there were too few baggage wagons. Now, every soldier knows how like the apple of one's eye are these same baggage wagons, drawn, as they are, by six mules, on tne long marches across the plains. A colonel f dragoons, who had command of one of tho columns, restricted the officers very much in their allowance of baggqge, and was most bitter if any one tried to exceed the just amount. One morning the colonel met one of his cap tains, (a dragoon, of course,) when he burst out as follows : " Captain, do you know what these artillery officers want to take across the plains?" " No, Colonel, I do not," said the captain, with an inquiring look. " Well," said he, "ifyou'll believe me, there's one of 'em wauts to take across a box of books." "Books I" exclaimed the captain; "what next I wonder? Now, Colonel, 1 hnvo but lit tle to take across myself nothing, in fact, but a barrel of whiskey. " Of course, Captain ; anything in reason, anything in reason; but the idea of carrying a parcel of books across that stretch, is a little more than I can stand I " The most unkindest cut of all the Southern rebels have yet received is related by the New York Tribune of Thursday. It is known to most people that there is kept for publio refer ence, in the polico department, a collection of photographs of distinguished thieves, the whole being known asthe "Rogues' Gallery." Among these pictures were placed last winter the like nesses of Davis, Cobb, Toucey, Floyd, and half a dozen others who had exercised their pro pensity for accumulation by stealing the Gov ernment property. Tho "rogues" among whose miuiatures these photographs wero placed, bore tho infliction ot their prJ3en'ce for some time in silence. Their compeers observed their growing melancholy, but knew not the reason. At last, even depravitv could keep them callous no longer. A score and a half of the most noted thieves of the mstropolis signed n serious and almost touching remon stance, addressed to the board of metropolitan police, protesting ngainst the indignity. Tbey sav it is enouL'h to endure the Bcorn of the world and the restraints of bolts and bars, but of this they would not complain ; when, how ever, they arc put into the company ot such men as those whoso naraen they repeat, they feel that, though thieves, they are still men, and they cry out for mercy.

A Dundreabt Joke:,, There is some relief to the monotony of iievy State affairs here sometimes. Onp day. recently, a gentleman who holds a responsible and lucrative .position under uGovernment, concluded to change his lodgings. 0 He sent oqejpf, the waiters of the hotel where he had selected apartments, after his baggage. Meeting the waiter an hour or two after wards, he, said: ,. "Well, John, did you bring my baggage down?" , "No Sari" blandly responded the sable gen tleman. " Why what was the reason?" " Case, Sar, the genepleman in de office said you had not paid your bill." " Not paid my bill why, that's singular he knew me very well when he kept, tho Girard House, in Philadelphia." "Well, mebbe." rejoined John, thoughtfully scratching his head, "dot teas de reatonhe wouldn't 9'u me de baggage." The gentleman of the Department took the joke in good part. mi Fobeiok Theatricals. The " Colleen Bawn" is still playing in tbo provinces. At Glasgow, Leeson, n New York tavorite, is act ing Father. Tom, his original part at Laura Keene's. Proctor, the American tragedian, played at the Pavilion, London, on the 1st ultimo, and Mr. and Mrs. Marcus Ellmore are in London, advertising for engagements. It is rumored tha.t Mr. apd Mrs. Charles Matthews havo separated on account of pecu niary troubles. It seems that Mr. Matthews took Madame's salary to pay his own debts. By J. 0.
