On tteStJi.Qf JuiyiMrvlttina Amelia Scott,
.he wifpupfojrich merchant in NewiYork city,
sloped irjth a .Mr. Newton fit. 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"-"-

Kenne, in the shoulder; Wm. 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.
