STARTLING EMBEZZLEMENT.
A Dry Goods Clerk .Charged
with Embezzling Ten Thou
sand Dollars worth
of Goods.
Arrestf hod J tear Id's' Uefor'e 'tne
Recorder.
Last evening Mr. John II. Hackett, a
confidential clerk and superintendent of
the dry goods establishment of D. C. &
II. M. Loewenstine, of the Southern
Palace on Main street, was arrested by
Detective Harry Cranmer, on the charge
f apprppriating quantity 6f goods be
longing to his'employers. Mr. Hackett
came to this city from Baltimore, Md.,
some ten years since, and has been in
the employ of Messrs. Loewenstine since
that time as clerk aad business superin
tendent. Being a first-class business man,
he secured the confidence of his employ
ers. The arrest was made lust evening
as above stated. Mr. Hackett is charged
with a series'of embezzlements of goods,
supposed to have been carried on for
many months.
THE GOODS FOUND.
. The officer, 'on nearching the timnk of
the accused, found a lot of goods belong
ing to Messrs. Loewenstine, val ued at
between one thousand to fifteen h undred
dollars, which were at once identified by
the owners. The officer found other
goods belonging to the proprietor in the
possession of some other parties to whom
it is supposed the'; were given' y Mr.
Hackett.
The report circulated that Hackett
had abstracted money and United S tales
bonds from the safe br Messrs. Louen
stineis untrue, they not having lost any
bonds, the accused never havi.ig hud
access to their safe. It is know n that
Hackett has a large am ount of L uited
States bonds in his possession, wh 'ch
bonds are suDnosed to he the result of
the sale of goods abstracted from hi 1
employers, ,, The story , in a morning
paper that the paper, found in Hack
ett' s trunkj showed that he had sent nu
merous trunks, full of goods to a New
York firm, is flatly contradicted, as is
also the story that numerous married
ladies in the city were the recipients of
costly presents from Hackett. These
tales are sensational the simple, facts
above 'set 'forth' being' the ' only
' only ones
brought to light.
; THE ARREST,
When officer Cranmer, who had been
on Mr. Hackett' s track, made the arrest
last evening, the prisoner took, matters
coolly, and refused to enter ints any ex
planations as to the charges, no doubt
preferring to await a consultation with
his attorney. He was locked up in the
Adams street station-house, where he
passed the night. On his person were
found-a fine gold Watch' and 'chaini'and
1250 in gold, which were taken charge of
by tbe station-house keeper. This morn
tng the following warrant was sworn out
before Recorder Winters, ex officio jus
tice of the peace:
StaU of Tonneaiaa. Shalby oonnty:
Before me personally appeared H. M.
Loewenstine and made oath that John
11. Hackett did feloniously embezzle
from affiant, at various times, a lot of
goods to the value of ten thausand dol
lars, the property of D. C. A H. M.
Loewenstine, against the peace and dig
nity of the State and contrary to law.
! .j HpL LpEVEXsTixc.
Subscribed aad sworn to before me,
this 24th February, 1872.
, P. M. Winters, J. P.
The warrant was executed at the sta
tion-house on the prisoner by Barney
Cox,. countable.1 The State and defend
ant not being ready foe trial, Jnstice
Winters committed the prisoner to jail,
in default of bonds in the sum of forty
thousand dollars, to appear before him
On next Monday afternoon at two
o'clock, when the case will undergo a
preliminary judicial investigation.
the prisoner.
Mr. Hackett- is aged about' twenty-
eight years, of medium size and is quite
a handsome man. 'He always dressed
neatly apd well, wore a dark mustache
and imperial, aad was quite' a favorite
with the ladies. Possessing gentlemanly
manners, and elegant appearance, he
moved in good society. He was reputed
to be a little fast, but of this we bave
nothing to do. The value of goods
which he stands charged with abstract
ing is stated in the warrant to be $10,000,
but it cannot be accurately ascertained
what araounli was ' -actually taken.
All this will no donbt come . out
on the investigation to be bad before
the recorder on Monda next. Mr.
Hackett was attended in court this
morning by Colonel George R. Phelan,
his counsel, and the State was repre
sented by Assistant Attorney General
Gammon. The arrest and discovery has
created considerable sensation and sur
prise tbrougheut the city, as Mr. Hackett
has been regarded at correct in business
matters and stood high in social life.

MiMraiS. Tins.. February 2. 12. 1
The situation financially is without the
slightest change. Money is wanted by
the merchants, and is furnished by some
of tbe banks to their customers only,
while others are not only supplying that
demand, but leaving, large araouot? on
thirty and sixty days' time to those con
sidered Al. Rates remain steady at 10
to 12 percent.
Exchange is in better supply, some
of the banks getting enongh to accom
modate their neighbors, and by next week
it is expected the supply will be largely
in excess of the demand. Several of
tbe banks to day have taken amounts
varying from $40,000 and $CO,000 to
$90,000 at the established rate, c dis
count, and sell checks on New York at
p ar.
Gold is higher, 111 being the Itew
York rut. Dealers here buy at 110t to
110, and would sell Bt 110J. '
Very few transactions are reported in
local, securities. County warrants, in
small amounts, are bought by dealers at
90c, but for a large amount 89a is, per
haps, the best ' price that could be ob
tained while the selling rates range from
92 J to 93c. City securities are quoted
at 55c for the long data currency issue,
January coupon detached, and C2c is the
quotation for the gold issue. Tennessee
money is bought at 84 to 85c for the old
and 3Go for the new issue, and is sold re
spectively at 86 to 87 and 37c. Tele
grams from New ; York to-day quote
Memphis and Charleston stock at 38c
bid and 39o asked. One dealet here of
fers small and large amounts at the for
mer price, while those who have held
the stock in anticipation of the benefits
to be derived by the city from a lease to
the Southern Security company are firm
at 40c, and will hold for that figure. The
stock now upon the market at a less
price is owned principally by the Ala
bama holders, who, it seems, are su
premely disgusted with the course
thinea have taken. Sales by some of
these parties were made in New York
late yesterday at 38c, aad several tele
