"Wc alluded editorially last week to the published statement of tho Rebel Com missioner of exchange, Robert Ould, in which thnt individual undertakes to throw the responsibility of cruel treat ment In rebel prisons upon Gen. Grant, and our own authorities. Quid's letter is being published, with big headings, in some of the Democratic papers, a a campaign document, showing the des plcablo nources to which they arc will ing to resort for capital against the un ion cause. Ould appeals to Gen. Mere dith, who had charge of exchanges on our part, to verify his statement, and with such results as we expected. In the Buffalo Commercial Advertiser, August 0, we find the following letter from Gen. Meredith, with introductory remarks by the editor of that paper : Wc are fortunately able to interpose 5 prompt and absolute denial of all Mr. Ould'n material statements of fucta, com ing from a source at once disinterested and unquestionable. Brisr.-Gen. S. A. Meredith, whoso military record during tho war stands denervedly high, ana and who is now sojourning in our city, was for many months on uuty near Richmond as United States Commis sioner for tho Exchange of Prisoners Ho was in constant communication with Mr. Ould in recard to this very business Tho otflcial correspondence -between them is now beforo us. and fully corro borates what Gen. Meredith says. Up to tho time when he wu relieved by Gen. Butlcraud ordered to another hem of service, Genoral Meredith speaks of his own personal Knowledge, tsinco that time ho has had a very natural in terest in the subject, and has kept him oolf thoroughly posted. He voluntarily furnishes ub with tho following state ment, which, to our mind, very effect ually demollslitB Jttr. uuiu s statement, and convicts him of partisan duplicity, if not of absolute falsification : QEN. MEltEDITIl'S STATEMENT. Editors Buffalo Commercial Advertiser. Mv attention has been called to a sen sation story published in the Now York worla. entitled a Torrtuie itovcia tion," purporting to bo a statement of Robert uuiu concerning tne exchange of prisoners. Wero tho mattor not so serious, the reasons given by this noble gatriot for publishing his romance might o considered the best joke of the season, to wit: "To correct the mauy misrepre sentations of tho late Conlcdcrate au thorities in relation to prisoners," and "that he feels it duo to tho truth or his tory to bring the facts Bet forth to tho attention of the country." Whan aii unrepentant traitor, like Robert Ould has the unblushing impu dence to attempt to impose on Northern freemen, his vindication of the "truth of history," as connected with the late rebellion, or the treatment or our sol diers. intentionally starved and slaugh crcd iu rebel pens, 1 also reel it incum bent on me (as he remarks) to "make a statement." Tho first interruption of the cartel was caused by Jeff Davis's message to tho rebel Congress, Jan. 12, 1863, wherein ho announced his determination "to deliv er all officers of the United States .cap tured after that date to the State author ities, to bo dealt with according to tho laws of those States, providing for tho punishment of criminals engaged in in citing servile insurrection." That is, our officers captured in battlo wero to be handed over to the State authorities to bo hanged. The second difficulty occurred In rela tion to negro troops, and the officers commanding them, whom tho rebel au thorities promised to treat In the same manner, but without taking the trouble to deliver them to tho Stato authorities In many instances no quarter was grant ed to that class of troops, or to tho ofil cera commanding thorn. Some wero ex ecuted without trial, though that more form would not havo benefitted them in the slightest degree. When, In August, 1863, I demanded that negro troops and their officers should be treated as other prisoners of wr, and exchanged, this "vindicator of tho truth" percmtorii.v declined, with this remark: "We (the rcboJs) will die in tho last ditch boforo giving up tho .right to send slaves bacu to slavery." Another causa of the suspension of tho cartel was its constant violation by tho rebelH, in making illegal declaration" ot exchange, for the pmposo of putting men into ttic nciu, anutnercis nouountj wlmtover that all prisoners paroled y Mm TTnllnil WtnloH nillhnrlt Iph wore 111!-' - ------ - -- ; ---- j rZZZWW i ;ln n captured at Vioksuurg wetc in uie uattiu of Chickamauga, Thus the rebels were - . jnaklng use of our well-conducted pris- ! ons an recruiting depots lor tneir army. Another liifiiipcrauie onstacie to re turn Ing exchange was in tho mutter of jiaroles. Mr. Ould had some eighteen or twenty thousand which lie claimed an valid. Most, if not all, of thedo paroles were takon bv guerllliuj, bushwhackers, and detached commands in tho West. No possesion whs ever hud. no delivery was ever made, and no rolls were over furnished. On the capture of a town by a rebel cavalry raid, tho command re mained long enough to take tho paroles of unarmed citizens there, and then de camped, leaving the paroled men be hind, and forwarding the paroles to Richmond. And the rebels had the as surance to retiuiro tho United States Government to exchange prisoners legit imately captured in battle fersuch par oles as these. " On the ii'ith of November, 1S0H, I offer ed to send immediately to City Point l'2,0t!0 or more Confederate prisoners to be exchanged for Union fcoldiors confin ed in the South. This proposition was distinctly and unequivocally refused by Mr. Oufd. And why? Because the damnable plana of tho Rebel Govern ment in relation to our poor captured soldiers had not then been fully carried out. Let Mr. Ould leave the truth of historv to take care of itself, and vindi cate, if ho can, the intentional, premed itated, and barbarous treatment ny uie rebel authorities of our soldiers in the rebel prison pens. "When, in 1S04, the hellish nlau was almost consummated, and they held, as prisoners, thousands of loathsome skeletons, let him confess that then his emasculated Government was willing to let the United States au tliorities bury its dead, in cxciiangc lor a lrcsli and liealtny army otbU,(wu men. to be immediately nut in tnc neiu against Gen. Grant. To conclude, Messrs. -Editors, these, and these alone, were the causes which prevented tne exchange oi prisoners and these causes were in operation unti tlie close oi tne war. The dililcuities in tho way were insurmountable, and wore so looked upon by tne united htatesau thoritios. Uen. urant nad no more power to overcome them than any offi cer who preceded him. He took the only means in his power to effect the re lease of our prisoners, and in 18G3 suc ceeded in accomplishing his purpose, much to the disgust, no doubt, oi sucn patriotic vindicators of tho "truth of history " as Mr. Robert Ould. Yours, very truly, S. A. Mehuditii, Late Brig.-Gen. and U. S. Commis sioner for Exchange of Prisoners. Buffalo, Aug. 25th, 1SG8. New York Correspondence, New Yohk, Aug. 20. First, bb to tho weather. The weath er is such a convenient thing with which open to an audience. Pooplomay diffor in politics, theology, and other topics, but the discussion of tho weather somehow engenders a won derful degrco of unanimity, har mony, and even brotherly feeling. For centuries, the weather has held, and probably will hold for centuries to come, the honored position of a convenient and safo " first topic. Well then, we are having magnificent weather ; plenty of sunshine, not of the roasting kind, but tempered to a nicety simply a gratefully warm, abundant (some would say golden) Hood of suubeams. And then the breezes, occan-kifcsed, and all that rcully, there is nothing to com plain of. A very long and perhaps pro fitable chapter might be written on this same weather. In this might be a par agraph of complaints again Bt the mos quitoes, for the pesky things still refuse to go. Yeaterday, the highest point to which tho mercuryclimbcd was Bcvcnty- slx A walkthrough the markets reveals to us that tho glad fruitage harvest is fully upon ub ; that out beyond theso long rows of brick and stone, out in the coun try, the yollow grain-fields havo yiold- od up their myriad Bhcaves, and the trees have shaken down their heavy loads of fruit. Not all, but many of these havo given up their wealth. Therefore, all this rich and varied color Ing In the markets. The year will not, however, compare with other years in fruits. There is an abandance of somo of the fruits common to this clime, and a very limited quantity of others. Of the latter, the great failure is the peach crop. A failure in this crop is generally more severely felt by dealers, for in stance, than the failure of any other fruit. Tho great army of dealers around Washington and West Washington markets particularly reckon on tho peach crop for the filling of their coffere. It is one of their best cropB, if not alto gether their most profitable one, through all the year ; and therefore such a small yield bb that of this year is a great disap pointment. In this and somo other homo fruits there is less of monopoly. It is simply impossible for one man or set of men to control all tho domestic fruit- ago : and of courso tho smaller dealers rejoice thereat. Wheraes, in foreign fruits there is a great monopoly. Ono firm alone controls a large part of the market in foreign fruits ; especially is this true of the lemon and orango trade, Of course, this means that the smaller dealers must pay something of a royalty to the said firm. Take, for instauco, theBo two fruits, tho lemon and orange, II In nnmnxniHiml.. .,. 4 , vUUip,,,,u;lij iui uiic w ih,b UUObCU Ull IUG EUIM1I V 113 WtMl U3 tUU UU' maud, tho veusois to arrive. &c, and then what is easier if ono Iuib the money than to buy im whole cargoes? ,, . , .

A part of tills fruit, when sold to tho dealers, may be examined, but a part of it may be told while it is in the hold of the vessel. This is what the dealers call "buying blind." The length of tho voyage and many other things nuitit bo taken into considerations. There must, of course, be a good deal of gucts wiuk. The fruit moy turn out altogether sound, and then tho dealer may sometimes make large turns ; and it may turn out altogether rotten, and then the dealer does not make to much. We are having all sorts of matches now-a-days. Conlcstsor skill in rowing, walking, base-balling, &c; and now tho boot-blacks have entered the arena, and, bless your dear souls, they get their names into the newspapers just like other people. This getting of the name printed in the newspapers seems to bo the grand end and aim of many peoplc'i being. From prize-fighting to stump speaking, and to on, this is a grand passion with the American people. And so "Hunch " and "Slops," bootblacks, have had a boot-polishing match, and have had their names posted in ns great a journal as the New York Tribune. "Hunch" was the victor. It is needless to say that he is on the grand road to wealth and fame. He must now " star " It go to Chicago and other cities, as the "Champion Bootblack," give great sup pers, &c. What an ngc is this ! But these same bootblacks, who pounce up on one at every turn of this great city, form a clas.s not at all to be despised. Their convenience and their usefulness no one will question, but, further than this, the bootblacks give us some men of whom we are justly proud. Their roughing sort of life makes them of no cesnity shrewd and sharp, and some of thoin make splendid business mauag crs. i'or instance, we have in mind one man, whose name is very widely known, who is the manager for this city at least of a gigantic enterprise which reaches its long arms through all the country, and this well-known man holding a position of such great rcspons' ibility, was once a bootblack. Honor to whom honor, &e. You hayo already received by tele graph and mail the particulars of the Broadway Theatre " Foul Play " diffl culties, the shooting, &c.

The idea is quite prevalent that many of our Sheriff's officers have a decided tendency toward the ruffianly Perhaps the poor officers aro wronged,'; however, they tell a very plausiblestory. There was some showing of human na' ture at least in all these difficulties, for the theatre on the following nights had large audiences, many people evidently being attracted thither in tho expecta tion of further trouble and excitement As to the copy-rights of the plays, it is hard to tell when the Courts will havo done with them. The twelfth annual game of the New York Caledonian Club will take place at Jones' Wood, on Tuesday next.
