Last night a white man borrowed a horse and road cart from Mr. Frank Williams, of Piedmont Heights, In which he drove to the city. After get? ting away from Mr. Williams he traded horses with another man who did not know that the horse belonged to Mr. Williams. Tho owner of the horse and cart be? came suspicious that something was wrong on aec unt of the long lime the man kept his property, and he notified Constable Whltehurst. That gentle? man, accompanied by Mr. P. T. cherry, got on the iru ik of the man and was Just about ' ) nab him when he saw them, nnd pul whip to hit? horse and made the dusl fly clown the shell road at such a rapid pace that neither Mr. Whltehurst or Mr. Cherry could catch him.

Owens, of the Ports? mouth Rides, is Just in receipt of the following letter from a former member of his command, now doing a soldier's duty in the Phllllpines: Firing Line Manila, P. I., May 8, 1838. Captain E. W. Owens: Dear Sir?With pleasure I now begin the pleasant task of writing you a few lines. You may be somewhat surprised to hear of my being in the army. 1 en? listed last December 23d with the Sev? enteenth U. S. I., and on January 15th, of this year, left Columbia barracks, headquarters of that regiment, for Ma? nila, P. I. We boarded our transport, the U. S. Grant, formerly the London Mohawk, on the evening of January the 17th, and on Friday, March 10th, we once more set foot on terra. l'.rma in Manila. We had a very pleasant voyage from New j York through the Suez Canal; also a1 very smooth sou. We had no accidents Worth mentioning, and only one death, and that was a man of our company. It Is not worth while to describe this place and country, as I expect you know as much about it, and doubtless more than tvo do. There are many line looking Spanish women here in this cityj There lias been continuous fight? ing between the American forces and the Fillipinos since February 4th. On March 24th we came out on the firing line, and the next morning fight? ing began betiVeen the Americans and the Fillipinos. At about 6 o'clock In the morning, on that day, Saturday, the enemy killed eighty and wounded 140 of our men. How many of them we slaughtered we know not, but I do know this, that on Monday we burled many of the black duffers. The fighting began about 500 yards in front of our post. Albert Gay is a member of this company, and begs all the men of the Portsmouth Riiles with whom we were associated as comrades in arms, to write to us and we will promptly answer. The rainy season is upon us, and while we have fairly good protection from the weather, it could be better. I forgot to mention that our captain, whose name is Clay, a grandson of Henry Clay, was shot in the neck on the 25th of March. He will recover all right. A nicer man or better soldier never commanded troops. He was act? ing adjutant on Major Lawton's staff at the time he was shot. With best wishes for your success and all the boys', I remain, your well wishes, ECK MDEARMON, M Co., 17th U. S. Infantry, Manila, P. I. MOONLIGHT?MUSIC?MIRTH.
