There was a bin sensation in thiscity this morn ing when it lieciiine known that Harry Sevbold, a very popular young man, bookkeeper of the Hank of Wheeling, had lieen arrested at his home on Sonlliside about midnight last night for embezzling $27,000 froni the lank.

Scyhold had a part of the funds deposited under the name of Scy hold & lleunig, which led the bank olliciuls to think that George lleunig, another prominent young man in this eitv, and an intimate friend of Sevbold, was indirectly connected with the theft, lie was promptly arrested and brought liclinc ust ice Arkle, when it was learned that Set-bold had merely used lleunig 's name without authority, lleunig is in no wav connected wilh the Haul; of Wheeling.

We dip the following from the Phila delphia Times of the Hist, From the description of the expected riding cos tumes, we may look out for something startling and stunning enough to secure a crowd of small boy followers, as well as "startle the Cherokee chiefs out of their taciturn gravity." As the writer ofthe letter draws a good ileal on his fancy, chiefs, and ball grounds, and rings, and lacrosse played for the guests of the hotels at Ashevillc ami Waynes villc, possibly fancy has likewise colored the aforesaid riding habits. We will be on the '" vre: "A correspondent describes two moun tain riding habits that will soon be worn in the "Lund of the Sky" in West ern North Carolina by two of those darl ing Southern horsewomen who belong to ihat new fashionable summer resort ol the Northern as well as the Southern anil Western people. They were of jersey webbing, one scarlet, braided with gold on the sleeves, collars and belts of the Norfolk jackets thai were worn with the dinging skirts, and knickerbockers in stead of panLalooiis: the other was sap phire blue braided with blue steel sou tache. Jockey caps, scarlet and blue, with gold-braided edges, went withlhcse habits. The Cherokee chiefs who come from their "reservation" to play lacrosse for the guests ofthe hotels in Ashevillc and Wa ncsville will be startled out of their taetui n gravity when those habits ride up to the ring of spectators sur rounding the hall grounds.

PF.ACF.F1L I'SK MA lL OF wari.ikf: HKAl CATCH F.K. What Is Now Ilelng none With the (. 'her Heights, and What Magni ficent Improvements Time Will llriug About. There is along the eastern boundary of Ashevillc a range of hills which elsewhere might lie called mountains, extending from the valley ol Heaver Dam creek to the valley of Swaimnnoa river, a distance of about three miles. They rise above the level of the city from two hundred and fd'ty to five hundred leet, or above the level of the French Hroad Irom five hundred to eight hundred feet, They are somewhat carelessly spoken of as the Iteaiicatchcr range, bill really are com posed of three distinct heights, Heau cateher, Town Mountain, and Smith's Mountain, the latter lying at the north ern end of the range, of greater extent and height. Where Heaiicateheroblained its name, we cannot tell, anil tin not care to know; for il is a trivial, though now a permanent one. Heiug very accessible, it has always been a favorite -resort, and also being very commanding, it was selected during the war in connection with llattery Porter as a proper site for a battery anil earth works, more for the encouragement id the timid than for any practical value or use. Some yeurs ago Mr. llazzanl, a gentleman from the vicinity of George town, S. C, erected a handsome dwelling on the north cud of Iteaucalchcr, and so smoothed the face of gi'iin visagetl war .wilh ornamental walks, shrubbery and llowers, as to have made its service ill tin-days of trouble only a story of tra dition. 'f his was the first use of these pielur tsipir heights. commanding such niaguill ceut and extensive views. The way once pointed out, in time the whole extent of the range will eventually be occupied. I lei ween I tea ilea I her a ml Town niouulain I here is a gap through which a public road, of easy grade, passes over to the Swan iiauoa Valley, and Chunn's Cove; and is also the access lo.Mr. I lazzartl's dwell ing. Il is also the road by which a dwelling creeled by Mr. J. M. Camp bell on Lhe very apex of Town nintin- tam is reached; and also tn the nearer, larger ami more costly dwelling now being built for Mr. I, livaus Hrown, This is to stand on grounds imiiiedialely opposile lo, and North of Mr. llazznrtls. Five acres arc already highly improved, tnslclti ami judiciously laid out, and planted with many varicticsolevergreeiis and other varieties of trees ami shruhliery. The dwelling is to be of brick, two sto ries high, besides a basement, architectu rally elegant, ample in size, with all mod ern improvements and conveniences, with its parlors, sitting rooms, billiard mums, baths, chambers, wine and meat cellars, also ii library, verandahs, balconies, and whatever obtains control of the scenery on every side, 'flic dwell ing will lie castellated in style with tur relctl and batlleinciiletl roof, the Moro castle of Havana being .somewhat sug gestive of the plan. As this will lie a periuancnl. ami not simply a summer res idence, all the fixtures ami conveniences will he of the most ample and jicrmuuciil kind The outlook is commanding in every direction, taking in a view with a ra dius of from ten lo sixty miles. A very pielurestpie feature ofthe view Ironi anv point of the range is the almost perpen dicular descent down into the pretty val ley ol Chiuui's Cove, thickly set with farm houses,.! ml u p from which the busy sounds ol industry or the cheery notes of laugh ter or of conversation strike the ear above with startling anil strange dit linclness. The time is coming when the whole of this range will be tlol led wilh line resi dences. So far, nothing h.-is been built upon Smith's mountain, the highest, the U;lsl ;lll1'1,l,t ll,t' ln"sl ""'cssible ol , its distance Irom ihc business centre icrhaps being thought loo great.

Rain and Summer Resorts. A correspondent of the Lynchburg Ad vance says: "All reports to the contrary, notwith standing," said a railroad man, "the summer resorts are having a hard time of il this year. The long siiell of rainy weather has made slaying in the iiioiiii lainsilre.'iry, to say the least, and the majority of jieoplc are belter satisfied to remain til home where they have com forts not usually found at summer resorts, and keep money in their pockets which would have liecusjiciil. I hope, however, lliiil the results will come out ahead, as there are two mouths yet in which warm weather may lie exicctcil, The railroads arc also the losers, us the travel has not Ix-en more than one-hall this month of what it was last year," We have every reason for felicitation in our mountain regions; for though we have a good deal ol rain at intervals, it has ltccn no more than seasonable. There has Urn no continuous rainy or altogether cloudy days during tlie sum mer; there havelieen no freshets, noover flows, no d.-t m ages to railroads. Just at this moment our streets are muddy, as much the result of work on sewers nnd otlier work of excavation as from rain. One mornings' sunshine will make tlicm all right, as also the country roads. As a result, the number of visitors to the mountains is as great as usual.
