[Correspondence of the Savannah Herald.]
OUR NEW YORK LETTER.
New York, Friday evening, May 19,
manifested on South street and down
town generally, on the first announcement
that the pirate Stonewall was at Havana was
happily of but short duration. Had not the
steamer Columbia arrived a few hours later
at Havana than the frigate Powhattan, the
nervous fellows who like to see their names
in the papers, would have had another meet
ing, and inflicted upon the community a se
ries of intensely patriotic resolutions, a half
dozen blather and killing speeches, telling the
government what to do, and then have wait
ed tremulously for the sound of the pirate's
Blakely guns as she shelled the city. But
the advices of the thirteenth completely
suothered the superfluous quantity of bub
litg effusions of patriotically indignant affla
tus which were filling the bosoms of some of
our antiquatedly, effete humanized antedelu
viam, who iufest our community, and who
are Aver ready to mount the Custoni House
stoop and inform our merchants of their
duty in such premises. South street sleeps
calmly, disturbed by no visions of whizzing
balls, ricocheting shots in our harbor, or ex
ploding shells over their up-town palaces or
mammoth warehouses, and we all await the
result of what may possibly be a tragic affair
near the port of Havana.
A Sorrowful Fellow
was found by the police a day or two since,
loafing around the South ferry. The M. P.
asked him what he was standing around there
for, and told him to “get along, or 111 pull
yer—yer haint been out of quod more than a
week.” He of the sorrowful mien looked
hurt, and gave vent to his “pheelinks” thus-.
“Let me alone, will yer; I got pulled awhile
ago for bounty jumping—they stuck me into
Fort Lafayette —didn’t care for that, yer
know, so long as they didn’t shoot a feller—
well, they wouldn’t let us out until after them
ere annerversyrees was over, coz they was
afraid we’d clean the lush from them ere
pious countrymen’s pockets—now they’ve
gone home, them ere felftrs with the white
choakers, and we hasn’t got any lift out ’o
them. Say—you jest let me alone—l’m going
to Greenwood to look at them gravestuns, I
am, coz I feels blue, I does! ” Your readers
can judge how thoughtful it was on the part
of the officials in not releasing the two hun
dred thieves from Fort Lafayette in season to
pray upon “them ere pious countrymen’s
A Flank movement
of the right description was made this week
in this city which meets the heartiest en
dorsement of our citizeus. Capt. Darling
has been appointed by Gov. Fenton as Pay
master •of this State, and he is engaged in
paying off the State certificates to soldiers
who volunteered and to the lately drafted
men. The captain is a keen observer, and
noticed that some of the pug-nosed, square
chinned, villainous-looking geniuses who
infest this city, were frequent callers at his
office, with certificates, aud he also noticed
the same face in many instances surmounted
a different style of clothing during the same
day. He set a detective to work, and a ’half
day’s observation proved the fact that the old
bounty-brokers were gathering a rich har
vest in collecting the pay for certificates be
longing to many poor soldiers they had
swindled. The captain immediately issued
an order that he would pay none other than
the soldier himself, or the soldier's wife—no
broker, or “attorney,” or any other man.
This has put an end to a big swindle.
The Prize Fight
at Port Jarvis this week, mustjliave been a
jolly institution. The Battery boys are hav
ing a heap of fun at the expense of Kit
Burns, who acted as second for the
beaten pugilist, by pestering the said Burns
with classic remarks as to how he got back
from the scene of conflict, as he lost every
ceht of money betting on his man. Quite a
number of Philadelphians and Californians
also lost heavily, their losses running to the
plethoric proportions of pocket-books of the
Brooklyn “Sports” who bet their “pile” on
Dunn. Even the Philadelphians who wrote
the extended account of the for the whilom
religious papers of this city, lost all his mon
ey, and had to exhibit his “card” as an at
tache to the paper t© the conductor of the
train to procure a dead-head passage back to
New York. Three hundred police who start
ed out to prevent the fight had a right nice
pic-nic some fifty miles away from the “ring,”
been thrown off the scent very neatly by a
stool-pigeon,perhaps Kennedy and Carpenter
do not feel a little rough about it.
A Slashing Time
has occurred this in the Quartermaster's De
partment of this city. In two days about forty
more more steamers were marked off the
books, a saving of over a million dollars per
month, then a heap of young cubs who have
been sucking cigars and pretending to “clerk
it” for Uncle Sam about four hours per day
at a big salary, were also given notice to
quit, besides numerous others more or less
worthy. Gen. Van Vleet is stopping
boles In the Government expense book,
A walk along our piers will display to the
pedestrian any number of idle steamers with
“for sale,’ prominently posted all over their
sides. If some of them are not sold soon,
they will probably tumble to pieces where
they are, and thus furnish a harvest to old
junk dealers, into whose hands they long ago
should have been delivered. One or two
steamboat speculator are in town from the
eastward, aud from the lakes, and ere long
their neighbors will be surprised to learn that
'the “magnificent ocean steamer so-and-so,’
will he pht on such-and-such a line. Look
out for them. It is reported, even, that
some .half dozen have been sold to go to
California, but he will be a risky man who
undertakes a voyage iu such shaky argosies.
The Libby Prison Sign
which lias been at the New England Rooms
the past fortnight, has attracted an immense
number of persons to view it. There is
nothing very picturesque about it—it is paint
ed on both sides, aud evidently projected
from the corner of the accursed building to
which it was attached. Some of our soldier
boys who have tasted the horrors of Libby
prison look at this relic, shudder, close their
fists and teeth tightly, aud walk away
Hard Luck In Getting Home.
The difficulties experienced in getting
home late at night hereabouts, when depend
ing upon public conveyances, was a few
nights since illustrated in the case of a jolly
and honest Hibernian. He resides near
Greenwood, to which there are two routes,
one of which, the Court street, runs hourly
after midnight, but does not pass within a
quarter of a mile of the residence of the
aforesaid Hibernian. The other passes his
door, but ceases running at midnight, and
this, of course, is the route he depends upon.
The night in question he reached the start
ing point just too late to take the last car.
But I will “tell the tale as ’twas told me ”
by himself. “I got there,” said he, ‘just too
late, and was in a divil of a stew what to do.
But I was bound to get home, so I engaged
a hackraan to take me home for two dollars.
An’ he wanted me to pay bin) before I got
in the hack. I told him I wudn’t do it. An’
he wudn’t budge, so I tuck him to the ferry
master an’ I put the two dollars in his hajtds
for jiini, to be called for after h*e tuck me
home. I thin got in the hack, an’ what d’ye
think the d—d rascal did ? . He jist dru.v his
hack around two or three blocks, an’thin
druv up to the door of the station house, an’
told the captain he had a man in His hack so
dhrunk he didn't know where he lived—that
he’d been drivin’ all over the city wid me.
I tould the captain that was a d—d lie ; that
I did know where I lived, an’ Iliad engaged
him to take me home. But the captain
wudn’t believe me and made me get out of
the hack aud walk in the station house. He
tould me if I lived near Greenwood the*e
wuld be a Greenwood car along soon at, I
could get in it—that the hackman had earned
his money drivin’ me around and he was en
titled to go. I saw the captain was as big i
rascal as the hackman, an’ there was no use
talking, so I waited for the Greenwood car,
which I knew was the Court street car, an’
I didn’t want to go in that at all, at first.
After a while the car came along, an’ I got
in, anywhere d’ye thiuk it landed me ? Why
down at Fulton Ferry; I had got into a car
that wa9 going the wrong way. It wa3 then
about four o’clock, and I had been four hours
on my way home and brought up just where
I started from, at an expense of two dollars
and six cents. “But,’’said I, “you went to
the fexrymaster and got your two dollars,
didn’t you?” “Me two dollars,” he exclaim
ed, “humph! the d—d rascally hackman
had been there long before me and got it, of
course. Well, I was so d—d mad, when I
found myself back to the ferry again th. it I
went off and didn’t get home till ten o’c.ock,
and then I had to go to bed to sleep off the
excitement I was under.”
The “Monroe Doctrine”
is now the watchword of a queer class of our
community. An illiterate fellow was de
claiming about the enforcement of the afore
said doctrine on a ferry boat the other even
ing, when an eastern man asked him if he
knew who Mr. Monroe was. The orator wasn’t
to be bluffed off, bat said he knew, of course
he knew Monroe—“he died a good while
ago—used to live in New England some
where, and was a great man!” “You mean
Mr. Munroe, I suppose,” said his interlocu
tor with a queer smile, “who was of the
book firm ol' Munroe & Francis, of Boston. •
“Yes— that’s him —and he left ito posterity
this ere doctrine, what's going to upset Max
in Mexico.” That was enough for one even

•‘The Vandal Foe”
was the favorite term that Col. Lubbock,
when Governor of Texas, used to apply to
all Yankees, »'. <?., loyal men. It must have
hmt his feeling (oh, dear!) to have tfeen cap
tured by the same “vandal foe,’’the said van
dals not showing even the least respect for
his great leader Jeff, although ensconced be
hind petticoats. This Lubbock, when .Gov
ernor of Texas, publicly said that “any citi
zen of Texas who would kill a Union man
should never be hurt while he was Governor.
He was one of the most inflammatory and
murder-inciting of all his class. After the.
Red River defeat, he issued a manifesto, in
which he congratulated his hell-hounds upon
the fact of “fattening garfish and alligators
upon the carcasses of northern men." As*
usual, by some wayward freak of love and
mature, this beast has one of the most
amiable and gentle wives upon the face
of the earth, but her prayers that God
might soften this hard heart have al
ways proved unavailing. He was one
of the most consistent fire-eating pirates
that ever attached themselves to the foi tunes
of the petticoated sneak in whose company
he was at last caught, and throughout the
war has urged the indiscriminate murdering
of all who opposed secession, . even by ad
vancing an opposing opinion. His time has
now come. He will die like a traitor and a
Flat Justicia, Ruat Ccclum.
The universal demand by the people, now
that the principal leaders in the rebellion
have been caught and are' in prison, is
that they shall have fair trial, an open court,
and that justice, stem and unrelenting which
shall be commensurate with the misery and
woe entailed upon this country by the enor
mity of their crimes. “Let justice be done,
though the Heavens fall,” is the cry from
the vacant hearth of the widow—from the
aching heart of the orphan—from the pallid
lips of the mother—from the hoarse
and choking throat of the
father, and the echo reaches gratefully the
hearts of all from President Johnson, that
“mercy to traitors is a crime against the na
tion.” There need be no Tear of innocence
suffering with the guilty, only those quake
who know their course has been such as has
made them aqfiwerable to the rigors of our
offended laws, and the true union men of the
South feel that lheir virtue will be at least
partially rewarded by the prompt and inex
orable punishment of those whose aim for
the last four years has been the' subversion of
law and ordir to a code of tyranny and semi
barbarism unheard of in any civilized country.
Some of the soft-headed arid pulpy-hearted
geniuses of the stamp of the editor of the
Tribune, others who dare not exhibit their
sympathy with the rebels in any other way,
are trying to inculcate upon the minds of our
people that it would be, a graceful act of
mercy to banish Jeff Davis and his compeers;
..but the unanimous execrations heaped upon
such arguments by the masses of the people
show how much success this miserable project
A Difficulty surmounted.
A few days ago, a healthy widower near
Hartford, who had been ,in mourning just
two months for the death of the mother of
his eight children, heard of an estimable
young woman who would make him ex
cellent housekeeper. Straightway,
he trudged to her residence, and laid his
case before her. She said she had no par
ticular objections to become his housekeeper,
but —the fact was, the chief difficulty exist
ing was her determination not to be house
keeper for any person unless she had-supreme
control as wife! Not to be stopped by tri
fles he proposed a walk to the Minister’s —the
walk was taken—and he carried home his
housekeeper in the shape of anew wife.
A Young Lead Mine
has been presented to the war department,
found on the battle-field of Spottsylvania.
It is in the shape of the butt of a tree which
must have stood between the two contending
armies on that bloody ground. Twenty
eight pounds of leaden balls have been ex
tracted, and hundreds yet remain embedded
therein. This small item gives one a more
succinct idea of the fell work of war than
