Pbesonai. A pretty serious difficulty seoms
to be raging between the Hon. Alex. P. Wal
ker, formerly editor of the Cincinnati Enquirer,
and now editor of the New Orleans Delta, and
Mr. John P. Heiss, formerly proprietor of the
Delia, and now of the Statct, the Douglas organ
In Washington. Mr. Heiss says that while be
was proprietor of the Delia he dismissed Wal
ker, beoause he "deteotod him In selling the
columns of our paper to advance the private
Interests of other parties for a consideration
whioh he put in his own pooket." He also
caught Mr. Walker, as he lays, writing for an
other journal on the other side In politics. Mr.
Walker responds with a denial, and with a
olever vituperation of Heiss, who, he says owe
all bis 'successes to "the siseof his;flst, the
depth of his ohest, the muscle of his arms, the
taurine brawn of his neok, and the prodigious
circumference of his head." In the fuither
course of the controversy, chargea of forgery,
perjury, and swindling are pretty freely ex
changed. That's all at present.
Ehpioviisnt op Camels m mi United
Statks Sebvick. A letter has recently been
received by the Secretary of War from Su
perintendent Beale, dated Fort Tejon Cali
fornia, in which the writer speaks in the
strongest terms of the great advantage to be
derived from the employment of camels in
the public service in the West. He states
that he lately tried effectually tUS compara
tive use of mules and camels as pack animals,
and the experiment proved beyond all ques
tion the great superiority of the camel, both
as regards rate of speed aud amount of bur
den. From what he had read, he dreaded
the difficulties which seemed to present
themsolves in breeding them; but his expe
rience had satisfied him that they were as
easily bred as cows and calves. He prefers
thorn, for 'all such purposes that he has en
gaged them on, to three times the same num

damage than anybody else's rivers. It has
more lanes, ana tney ore bigger, and deeper,
and clearer, than those of any other coun

and pitch off the track oftener, and kill more
people than all other rail cars in this and
every other country. Our steamboats carry
Digger loads, are longer and broader, and bust
their bilers oftener, and the Captains swear

country. Our men are bigger, and longer,
and thicker, can fight harder, and faster,
and drink more mean whisky, and chow
more bad tobacco, and not be killed, can spit

finer, spend more money, break moTe hearts,
wear bigger hoops, shorter dresses, and kick

than all other ladies in all other countries.
Our niggers are blanker, work harder, have

New York ; commission for selling, twelve and
