TUESDAY EVENING, OCTOBER -8, A Confidence Man's Sketch of his Opera tions. I am ashamed to confess that I have been a thief. It is humiliating to reflect that, at an earlier period of my career, I should at any time bt.ve so far forgot ten myself as to have been guilty of petty larceny from tha person. It is sad to remember, moreover, that, this being my third mistake of that nature, I was con demned for it to five years' penal servi tude. Doubly humiliating it was when, after being liberated on a ticket of leave for good conduct, I discovered bow many professions were opened to me of a far more lucrative character than my former calling, and altogether beyond the reach of the law. It occurred to me' that with a small oapital say fifteen pounds I might be able in a short time to realize almost an independence for one in my position, by very simple means, aid quite honestly that is to say, when viewed in connec tion with some successful business ope rations in the highest walks of commerce which have come within my notice. Accordingly, on my releuse I went to an acquaintance ef mine a pawnbroker with whom I had formerly done business in another way and slated my intention of turning over a new leaf. I hinted it was possible he might have in his pos session a number of valuable articles, such as watches, rings, and so forth, which, for certain reasons, it would be inadvisable to offer for sale; but for which he might, nevertheless, bo glud to find a market. Singularly enough, he bad. I proti'ered my services to assist in disposing of these articles for the very reasonable commission of five- per cent. My overtures being accepted, I requested my friend to make me out pawntickets for all the trinkets, priced at their full value thirty pounds. Having done so ho then intrusted the tickets to my charge, and handed me in advance the eommission of thirty shillings. With a portion of this money I paid for the following advertisement in a daily paper: "Fifteen Pounds Sterling Wanted for Ten Days Bjia professional gentleman. Eight pounds will be paid for the accommodation, and property deposited worth double the amount. Address, etc." From about twenty replies I selected one with a country postmark, and in female handwriting. After some corre spondence with this lady a lodging house keeper in a seaside town she was prevailed upon to advance the money on my terms, which were Item, my acceptance at ten days for twenty-three pouuds. Item, the deposit of the pawn tickets for thirty pounds worth of valuable jewelry. Wuen tu acceptance: became due 1 was unavoidably called out of town on important business, and did not return for some days, in fact not until the estimable matron, finding the acceptance dishonored, had endeavored to recover her money by redeeming some of the pledges. She had taken out goods to the amount of ten pounds, but consider- ne tbey were not worth the money, refused to redeem any more. The pawnbroker, however, knew as well as I did thai the tickets, being actually in circulation, would be sure to come back again some day, and to result in his getting rid of the property at a very good profit. This in course of time actually occurred, for the worthy lady, on discov ering that the goods were pledged for more than ther were worth, was quite sharp eoongh to dispose of the tickets one by one, for a small premium, among her continually changing constituency of lodgers. By this means she partially recuperated the amount she had lost, uJiJ carried out my truly fraternal prin ciple of sharing our losses as well as our jos and sorrows among our brethren in Che world. Agonizing reflection to a well-balanced mind like mine, it cost her four pounds fifteen. I would have made money by it! ' Dui'ing the hours of my retirement from the busy scenes of life (at the ex pense of my country), I had possessed ample opportunities for rellectiugon the inestimable blessings of a free proas to an enlightened community. I now pro ceed to embody the result of those re flections. I first of all made friends, at some trouble and not a little expense fur liquor, with' a porter in the employ of Messrs. Dantou & Birch, the celebrated auctioneers, anil I ultimately succeeded on prevailing on that porter, for a hand some consideration, to take charge of some letters that would be addressed to me, but to " his care," at his master's office. I impressed upon his mind the necessity of watchfulness, lest auy of these letters should miscarry into his employers' bands. Having thus secured one of the most respectable addresses in London, I next purchased ten pounds' worth of post age stamps, and then sent the subjoined advertisement to three daily newspapers, directing it to be inserted every other day three in each paper only: "The advertiser being in the sujoy ment of a oood thing is willing to itn- ?nrt it to a select number of subscribers, 'his is bona fide. Send thirteen post age stamps and a directed envelope to " M.," Esq , care of " H. W.," at Messrs. Danlon A Birch's, Moon street, city." This sort of advertisement being rather a stale article in itself, I depended lor its success, first, on the unimpeachable respectability of the address; and next, on the manner in which 1 intended to work it At the end of the week my nine adver tisements had brought me one hundred aud eighty-four replies. Each reply contained the addressed envelope aud thirteen stamps. If you think I stole the postaee stamps, and bolted, you wrong me you entirely mistake the cbasteuing influenceof meditation and re-irement on a just and sensitive mind. What I did was this: In each of the directed en velopes I folded np the thirteen stamps I had received, together with thirteen more, in a neat piece of paper containing these words and figures : See Geneset xiii. 3 Imagine the surprise and curiosity of my one hundred and eighty four cheats when, on opening the letter, each found iwciity-iix stamps returned ftr the thir teen forwarded, and had turned np the quutation : " And it came to pass as they emptied their sacks, behold every man s bundle 01 money was in 111s sara. I stopped my advertisements for a week. S'.ill a few strangling applications dr aped in, making the toial number ol replies two hundred and twenty seven. Now, I knew very well that out of my two hundred and twenty-seven consti tuent, esch of whom had received a present of thirteen postage stamps, ther wonld hardly b one who wonld not apply cii:citi.atio. to me again. In a general way, if a fish take your bait and be not hooked, he will come back tq yon. Most of my fish would reason thus: "I cannot lose anything, for, thirteen postage stamps in pocket, I risk nothing by a second venture."' But I depended most of all on securing in each of my clients the very best adver tising medium I could desire ; for I no tie that whereas people who get stupidly swindled are apt to hold their tongues about it; persons successful in mntters of doubtful issue are invariably anxious to inform their friends how very shrewd they have been. In a week I resumed mv advertisements; three more insertions. I had not miscalculated the result. No fewer than one hundred and ninety-four applications came from original snare holders." At the end of ten days the total nnmber of my subscribers amounted to seventeen hundred and lorty-cigbt. You will guess, perhaps, thru I now kept all the stamps. You'misjddge me cruelly, and do injustice to the salutary lessons of confinement and contempla tion. I returned the stamps of eight hundred of the applicants, with thirteen more enclosed in each envelope, and the same reference to Genesis, taking care to reply to only half the letters from each town. Then I inserted my last adver tisement: " The Good Thing. The advertiser requests the indulgence ol bis corre spondents. They are so numerous it is utterly impossible to reply to all by return. He assures them, however, that each client shall receive due attention in rotation. In a fortnight I was inundated with letters. They came from all parts of the kingdom. Many of them were stamped with cornets, crests, and monograms, that surprised me, though I had made such proficiency in the study ot buuh devicos on spoons in by-gone years. My friend, the porter brought the letters to my lodgings every morning and evening on a pair of hand-trucks, until in all I bad received twelve thousand four hundred and Bevcnty-one. Then Messrs. Danton k Birch had their atten tion directed to the fact of their house being used as my address. They sur prised their porter in the act of "run ning" a cargo of my letters; him they discharged; the letters tbey confiscated. It grieves me to reflect on the melan choly fate of the porter, likewise the number of postage stamps diverted from their regular channel. It is fair to say, though, that I believe Messrs. Danton & Birch religiously returned every postage stamp that fell into their hands. This is highly satisfactory to a mind, etc. Even I could have done no more. To inquirers for the Oood Thins : See Lake x, 37. Go and ao likewise. With a view to attract into the paths of honesty and virtue those of my mis guided brethren still pursuing the highly reprehensible occupation of vulgar rob bery. I subjoin my balance sheet, which cannot fail to prove an incentive to the practice of honest labor for daily bread. In proof of its having taught me the beauties of rectitude, I wish to call at tention to one item it contains. I refer to income tas. My gentle and retiring nature could not brook a " return " to undergo the scrutiny of a curious survey or ; but a recent number of the Times contaivs the following notification : " The Chancellor of the Exchequer begs to acknowledge the receipt of the second half of a Bank of England note for ten pounds, on account of income tax, from M., Esq." Need I add thatM. stands for Me 1- I wish to add a general moral : To steal in the lump from any one person is disreputable and foolish, besides rendering you amenable to the law ; but so to conduct your negotiations as to distribute a given loss (your pro tit) among the largest possible body of constituents is the true theory of com mercial prosperity : THE BAHNCB SHKKT. 1)H.

Nkw York, Oct 2, l.67 No doubt ere this you have been apprised of the collapse of the rotten Lroton national Bank, at the corner of Nassau and Lib erty street'; but, as you may ndt have been apprised of the "fan" system upon which it was "run," it may as well be stated that, as rumor has it, it was engineered chiefly by young men about town chaps that always had the showiest seats at the opera, that always had the most dashing fair ones by their side, that always drove the smartest burses on the avenue, that always bet highest at the Jerome Park races, that always occupied the most gorgeous pew in the most fashionable church, and that always figured most conspicuously on the bail committees at Long Branch, New port and Saratoga during the season. Is it any wonder that, when the Bunk Ex aminer came to overhaul the specie " in their vaults, less than three thousand dollars were found there ? Of course no disgrace is supposed to attach to the failure. In former times occurences like these nsed to send the parties implicated into Coventry, if not the penitentiary; but now it is looked upon as something in the light of analter of, course. Nobody thinks any the 'worse of them. They appear on "the ave nue, occupy tbeir seats at the opera, and drive their bays throuch Cen tral Park, holding tbeir bead as high as ever. If the bank is broken it doean't necessarily follow that they are without "assets." If they were they couldn't continue ta speculate in Harlem and Kne, and occasionally tura a penny in buying and selling gold, could tbey? Depositors, bill holders, and the public cenerally, meanwhile, bad better not be too impertinent or too inqaimtive. How do they know that a good many other of these shoddy banks are not io the same condition ? Louitrilit Democrat, Tat New York Ecening Pott, a thoroughly Radical organ, gives the fol- EDGE lowing advice to the Republicans of Tennessee: " The hitter feeling in Tennessee is unfortunate, thouirh not unnatuaal. If the Republican there are wise, tbey will make haste to restore the suffrage to the whites now excluded. They have held one quiet electiou under thoir chosen suffrage, law; they have assorted aud vindicated their position ; and they can now afford to give up their proscriptive policy. Indeed, in our opinion, they cannot afford to continue it. Thry have enfranchised the blacks, tbey possess the control of the State; they will not de serve to keep it if tbey have not courage and statesmanship enough to take in all the proscribed whites." Jn tho above remarks the Pott is only alongside the New York Tribune, Cin cinnati Commercial and Springfield Republican. How far such counsel may wciizh with the " Republicans of Tennes see" remains to be seen. For our own part, we have not been in the habit of looking for relief to that quarter. General Grant the Radical Candidate The intelligent and well informed correspondent of the Baltimore Gazette sb.vs : The newspapers at a distance have been puzzled at the " position " of Gen. Grant- I can relieve that anxiety. He is oi substantially the Radical candidate for the next Presidency. The leaders of the party which ai mi at usurping the Gov ernment, who have in squads been visit ing at intervals the metropolis ever since the entente of Stanton's removal, some ljme ago came to the conclusion, in view of their probable defeat in the coming election, to keep Grant in the hack ground for the preseut. He was anx ious to promulgate a written adhesion to tba dogmas of the Destructives at once. I have specific information that this Go liah is reserved to break the force of the dofeat wbieh awaits the party, and that he has promised Scbenck, Logan, Wash burne, Farnsworth, etc., who have been recently manipulating him, to come out with bis " great name " upon the heel of their discomfiture. The same writer states that it is re ported "on higher authority than Presi dential assurances" that Secretary Sew ard and Minister Admas are soon to change places, and that it is certain that Grant will shortly vacate his post at the War Department. " Specifio charges of grave character" are also said to be pending against Mr. McCulloch. Names. Did you ever know a lady, who was not dissatisfied with her own name? We never have. They always admire each other's name, and wish it was thiir own. Sarah thinks Sarah is a horrid name, and Mary wishes her name was Sarah, and Rebecca thinks if her parents had only named ber Ella, she would have been perfectly contented ; Ella, of courre, has but one deep-seated sorrow of life, and that sorrow is that she had not been christened Rebecca. It is unfortunate that all the girl babies cannot be called "Sis " or "Toodles" or "Daisy," or any thing, until tfTey become of a suffi cient age to choose for themselves. What splendid times there would be if young ladies could meet together and discuss each other's names as they do their brwinets, hut it might create confu sion AT Y.
