From the Now Orleans Pioayune. About seventy years ago there lived in this country a very great man. Bis name was Alexander Hamilton. He had been a distinguished officer of the Revo lution and a trusted friend and counselor of the illustrious George Washington. On the organization of the government, Hamilton became a leader of a great political party, and was appointed the first Secretary of the Treasury of the United States. He was the ablest man who ever filled that office. As a party leader at a time of fierce political ex citements, Mr. Hamilton was the shining mark of many bitter assaults. His own party was not .alow or moderate in its counter attacks. Mr. Jefferson was the target of the Federal or Hamiltonian diatribes. His private life, too, was overhauled, and his every act distorted into something criminal or immoral. There were no limits to this sort of abuse on both sides. At last the Jeffer soiiians lighted upon a precious piece of scandal against Mr. Hamilton, which did not even need coloring or exaggeration to render it excessively distasteful to his friends and damaging to his reputation. The story ran thus: A buxom and attractive woman had visited the young and susceptible Secretary of the Treas ury, and under pretext of seeking some favor of him, had captivated and se duced him from the paths of duty and morality. An amour of a somewhat extended and complicated character sprung out of the affair, which had gone far enough, however, to expose the char acter of the woman as an adventuress and blackmailer of the most avaricious nature. Finally a convenient husband was introduced into the drama, an illit erate and vulgar fellow, who attempted the panel game on the great Secretary. Nothing but an office in the Treasury or $60,000 in cash would solace the wounds o; his honor and connubial felicity which were inflicted by Hamilton. That great man resisted and defied the arts and importunities of both the woman and her suppositious husband. Thereupon they sold their valuable scandal to tbe enemies of Mr. Hamil ton, who were not slow in laying the whole affair" before the world. Tbe friends of Mr. Hamilton denied the story at first, but were quickly silenced by the amazing courage and honesty of his answer. Freely admitting that he had strayed from the paths of duty, and had griev ously sinned as father and husband un der the wiles and seducing arts of a vo luptious wotnaji, he indignantly repelled all aspersions on his benor as a public official and gentleman. For bis sin, oi which he deeply rf ppnted, he asked the indulgence of his fellow-citizens, but if he had permitted himself to bo misled by any art or influence to a betrayal of the high trust confided, he should feel that he had no right to ask their forgive ness or indulgence. It is a curious fact in our political and social history that Mr. Hamilton's manly answer completely disarmed the public censure, and he continued, until his un happy death, the idol of his patty and the most admired and respected political chieftain of tbe era. What Italian Brigand's Head la Worth. In the northern provinces and in Sici ly brigandage is as flourishing as in the olden times; the police are either partisana of malelactors or are impotent against their organized forces, and tbe poor find it their interest to protect the brigands who never molest them and frighten away the proprietors and farmers from inspecting too closely their crops and stables. Kirely is a murderer or brigand captured. Forty five escaped from Ca senga last month, and the ringleaders are still at large. Botta, tbe chief ot po lice at Parma; Fiana, mayor of Orvicte; the inspector ol the macinato in Sardinia have been assassinated, and assassins are undiscovered. The government sends the military, who find themselves isolated in the midst of a hostile or timid popula tion without aid or information from the civil functionaries. A large reward has just been offered for the most noted Sicilian brigands by the new Prefect of Palermo Joseph Vicenzo Capraro, Pin cenzo Rocca, Angelo Kinaldi, Gloachiuo MEMPHIS, TENNJ TUESDAY di Pasqnale, Antonio Leone, fjOOO per head -for Antonio Lombardi, $2000 for Lorenzo Lampiasi, surnamed the King; for Salvatore Vellorina and Guiseppe Lomonte, $100 per bead. But such measures are useless. No one dares to betray tbe law-defying chieftains, still less to venture into their domains, well knowing that a spy's life would not bo worth an hour's purchase. BASE BALL. The American Player In Kna-Ind Oamea at Liverpool, 91 nuc hea ler and London, A London letter says: The visiting base ball clubs played two games in Liverpool last week, not a very latge crowd attending either game. The first was won by the Athletic, Leonard mulling two easy flies on the tenth inning, which gave them the game, the score standing 14 to 11 in their favor. The second game was won by the Boston 23 to 18. The third was played in Manchester, August 1st, a greater concourse of people being present, who seemed to take great inter est in the content. Some very close play was exhibited, the result being again in favor of the Athletic by a score ot 13 to 12. Some splendid fielding was Bhown in this game, with good play all round. McMullen in the left field was especially conspicuous for good fielding. In every game played thus far tbe batting has been terrific, although a dead ball has been used. Tbe grqumls played on are well kept, and are more like lawns than anything else. The continued dry weather renders the Burface hard, caus ing the ball to bound and travel very fast. The press generally speak well of the game as played in Manchester, and bestrow praise liberally on the excellent fielding shown by the two clubs, also upon the fearless stopping of hot balls. The applause on each occasion was long and loud. After tbe game in Manchester the nines started for London, arriving at the Midland depot about four a.m. on Sun day. They are at present at the Midland Grand Hotel, one of the largest in Lon don, and a model of convenience and comfort. Besting through Sunday (a rest that had been well earned), a mag nificent reception was given the clubs and their friends on Lord's cricket ground by the Marylebone Cricket Club, tbe use of the grounds being gen erously tendered for this day. It be ing a bank holiday a large crowd was in attendance, fully six thousand people being present, a number of ladies in handsome equipages adding to the brilliancy of the scene. Cricket commenced at about 12 m., with eighteen Americans against eleven gentlemen of tbe ground, the latter to the bat. Four wickets were down when lunch was called, two bowled by Mr. McBride, one by H. Wright, and one caught et point by H. Schafer. several old cricketers look ing on expressed their admiration at tbe play of our eighteen forty-two runs be ing scored to four men out. After lunch the two nines went to work at base ball, the Athletic going to the bat. In this game, as in the first inning, both clubs scored three; in the second the Athletic made oue and the Bostons none. After this the Bostons gradually increased their score until in the fifth inning the total stood nineteen to four in their avor. After this tbe Boston secured five and the Athletic three, making the game twenty four to seven. The play all round was loose, errors on both sides be ing order. Batten, of the, Athletic, gave the Red Stocking six runs in one inning by had errors. At each good play the applause was generously be stowed on either side, English and Americans joining in together, although the former not being posted in tbe game were sometimes puzzled. Tbe opiuions expressed by our English friends were sometimes very amusing, tbe general formula being, "The game's so much like 'rounders,' you know could never supersede cricket, you know." After tbe game was over and the grounds cleared, the competing nines and friends became the guests of the Marylebone Cricket Club at dinner. A very enjoyable time was had, all present doing their best to make the guests feel "at home." To morrow the cricket match, commenced to-day, will be proceeded with. Base ball games will also be played on the Surrey Ground, at Kenningten, and on Prince' Ground this week. That the trip will be a success there is now not the slightest doubt, our English cousins being thoroughly aroused, and seeming determined to see and judge for them selves. Rev. T. DeWItt Tlmge- Dark; Story. Eli Perkins writes from Saratoga to the Graphic as follows: Even the Boston darky the Plymouth Rock Puritan darky has a profound reverence for Boston talent.. The Rev. T. DeWitt Talmage tells the old story here again, how a few years ago he walked into a Presbyterian church in Boston. ' As he entered, a colored sex ton, now attending the Colored Conven tion in Saratoga, bowed and said: "Have a seat, sah? Plenty of seats this morning, sah." " No, thank you; can't stay but a mo taent. Just stepped in to see the ckurch. What is the name of the cler gyman? Can't see very plain." "That, sah, is Reverend Henry Wad Beechr, sab!" "Fin preacher, isn't be?" returned Mr. Talmage. "Well, sah, peoples has difrent no tions 'bout preachers " " But he seems quite animated." " Yes, sah; consid'ble animated." " And appears to have talent." " Well, sab, as I said afo," peoples has such difrent notions 'bout preachers, liar s some dat links he s mlgiity good on de words. I tink myself he's a far man, sah a very far man, sah; but not of tbe prima facia class. He's a good man, sah a well meauin' man, but not a talented man. He's a New York man, sah!" EVENING, AUGUST 25, 1874. Doing a Dnn. " I have a small bill against you," said a pernicious-looking collector, as be en tered the store of one who had acquired the character of a hard customer. " Yes, sir, very fine day, indeed," was the' reply. "I am not speaking of the weather, but your bill," replied tbe collector in a loud key. " It would be better, if we had a little rain." "Confound the rain," continued the collector, and, raising his voice, added, " Have you the money to pay this bill?" "" Beg your pardon, I'm hard of hear ing. I've made it a rule not to lend my. money to strangers, and I really don t recognize you." "I'm collector for the Daily Ex tinguisher newspaper, sir, and I have a bill against you," persisted the collector, at the top of his voice, producing the bill, and thrusting it in the' face of his debtor. " I've determined to indorse bills for no one; you may put the bills back into your pocket-book; I really can't indorse it." "Confound your indorsement! Will you pay it?" "You'll payit.no doubt, but there's always a risk about these matters, you know. So I must decline it." "The money must be mine to-day." "Oh, yes, ninety days, but I would not indorse a bill for you at a week; so get out of my store. It is seldom that I am pressed upon for an indorsement, even byatriend; on tbe part ot a stranger, Bir, it is inexplicable. Do not force me to put you out; leave the premises." The bill was returned to tbe Extin guisher office, indorsed: " So dreadfully deaf that be couldn't understand." Tbe Milwaukee Sentinel does not be lieve all women are angels. It does not believe an angel would sit at a second story window and yell, " look out, old stove-pipe!" before slinging peach-stones at the silk hat of a passer-by. SPECIAL NOTICE. Many who are suffering from the effects of the warm weather and are debilitated, are ad vised by physicians to take moderate ameunts of whisky two or three times a day- In a lit tle while those who adopt this advice fre quently increase the number of "drinks, and in time become confirmed inebriates. A beverage which will not create thirst for intox icating liquors, and which is intended especi ally for the benefit of debilitnted persons, whether at home or abroad, is Dr. Schenck's Sea Weed Tonic. Containing the juices of many medicinal herbs, this preparation does not create an appetite for the intoxicating cup. The nourishing and the life-supporting properties of many valuable natural produc tions contained in it and well known to medi oal men have a most strengthening influence. A single bottle of the Tonio will demonstrate its valuable qualities. For debility arising from sickness, overexertion or from any ciuse whatever, a wine-glassful of Sea Weed Tonio taken after meals will strengthen the stomach and create an appetite for wholesome food. To all who are about leaving their homes, we desire to say that the excellent effects of Dr. Schenck's seasonable remedies. Sea Weed Tonic and Mandrake Pills, are particularly evident when taken by those who are injuri ously affected by a ohange of water and diet. No person should leave home without taking a supply of these safeguards along. For sale bv nil druggists. end-lSS-lM MUSIC. EstatolisHet In 1888. E. A.
