A3 the more recent defalcations in j Wall street do not greatly exceed three j hundred thousand dollars per day, the j people of New York have for some j ?lays past directed their attention to ] furious'newspaper war which is being ? waged against thc impenetrable James Gordon Sennett by that very famous musical director, Max Maretzek, of the New York Academy of Music Max having reason to suspect thc astute Bennett with having sinister j designs upon his opera troupe and its anticipated performances this winter, has pounced upon him with immense but most indiscreet fury, and thus far seems to have the inside track; but we have great faith in Bennett event? ually flooring his adversary. We have in our day seen a vast number of as? saults made upon that experienced and tough old badger, but we have never yet known him to bo whipped iii the long run. Before tho fight is over, he invariably gives a shaip snap or venomous bite, which makes Iiis opponent howl with pain and bear the murks of thc "punishment*" to his grave. In the present instance, we have the fiery and impetuous Maretzek raining his blows upon the head of bis adver? sary at the most fearful rate. He even has the unblushing audacity" to make out a black mail account against the j Herald, in which a large number i>i \ suspicious items are grouped togeth ;r in the most business-like manner, and, sis Mr. Mantileni would have said, the "deinned total" foots up ?1-4,001), to the great prima facie discredit of the JIarald. Max evidently thinks that he has demolished Bennett, for that pa? tient and meek philosopher takes it all as coolly as a duck would a slight shower after a long drought. He lias, in reality, felt it no more than a griz? zly bear would a load of partridge shot at forty, paces. He probably rather enjoys the violent excitement of his adversary, as a hedge hog'does the babied rage of a dog. But does any one suppose that poor Max "will not "catch it" in due season? It may not suit Bennett to hit him to-day, or. to-moftow, or next week, or next mouth, but lie has a good memory about trifles, always manages to ba? lance accounts, and when thc indis? creet Max Ls entirely oil his guard, and has exposed some very vital and j sensitive point, the venerable * "James Gordon, with a vigor beyond his years, will improve the occasion and give the ?Horesaid Maretzek a thrust so quick, keen, sharp, dee}) and hor? ribly painful that he will bellow like the most vigorous of the bulls of Basham. If Bennett was either sen? sitive or humane, he would pitt the enraged musician "out of his misery now," but he prefers playing with . him as a cat does with a mouse, and weeks henee we shall hear a growl and then a squeak of mortal agony, and everybody will say old grimalkin Ben? nett has squelched that foolish .mouse Maretzek, and such will be the fact. "Ten to one on Bennett." [Rkkmond Times. Advices from Nashville, dated Au? gust 24, says; Yesterday morning, Maj. Baker, of Gen. Wheeler's staff, challenged Col. Blackburn, which was promptly de? clined. Gen. Doolittle, hearing of the affair, ordered Maj. Baker and Col. Woodfolk, who( carried the mes? sage, to leave the city by 12 o'clock, which order was promptly obeyed. DESTITUTION IN CHARLESTON.-Tho Philadelphia inquirer publishes the following extract from a private letter received in that city from a Sister of Charity, dated Charleston, South Ca? rolina, July 7: Many hundreds of the citizens who have been accustomed to all the luxu? ries of life have been compelled to sue foj and live on Government rations. Even 1 hese have been stopped. Could you but see these delicate ladies in houses void of furniture, reduced to the wash-tub and cook-pot, your heart would bleed; still more when you reflect they have no means of procur? ing the bare necessaries of life. A few who were in business before and during the war are making attempts to regain a footing", but the planting population around Charleston arc destitute of everything. God alone knows the full tide of misery which has set in on these peo? ple. We see a part of it but not all. Still, if we were made the medium of assistance to them, we could reach thc bulk. We invite the co-operation of your citizens in this work for the relief of these people, who will inevi? tably die of starvation if not assisted. This ?3 a cause of humanity, therefore persons of all opinions may unite in *** . * " I hope this appeal will not bo in vain, and that you will be able to for? ward, ere long, proofs of the good will of your city for suffering wher? ever found. SISTER M. HELEN, Convent of our Marv, Charleston. S. C. _ _ NOT VERY FRIENDLY.-Judging from the following it appears that some of the Northern people don't love the negro so extraordinary well, after alk The Louisville Democrat, speaking of affairs in Indiana, says: "At latest accounts, negroes were fleeing from Evansville in all direc? tions, being fearful of being killed by tho citizens. The citizens beat them wherever they can catch them, and they seem determined, since thc bru? tal outrage of two negroes upon the person of a white lady on .Sunday, to rid the city entirely of them. On Monday night, a crowd made a rush for the steamer Carrie to clean out the negroes, but fortunately they were nun cst. The wildest excitement pre? vailed when the Lady Grace left there. She arrived here yesterday, and re? ports that the negroes are scared almost out of their wits. They are coming away on boats and taking to the woods. We learn that the military authori? ties were attempting tc put a stop to the proceedings o? the mob. Several negroes have been killed or hung, and an order has been issued compelling all the negroes to leave the town, and ail persons who have them in their employ are ordered to discharge and drive them from their premises." If this had occurred in a Southern State, thc Northern papers would have sent a terrible howl of indignation. ETERNITY.-When we are alone, an hour past midnight, in the streets of a sleeping city, everything around us appears as if hewn in the adamant of eternity. FIRE AM) LIFE IMMCE, H. E.
