The Savannah Daily Herald. TI'ESOAT, AUGUST «. 1 S6». THE JENKINS DEFALCATION CASE. Recovery of More Properly from Cyprians —An Inmate of a Crosby Street fcagnio Gives Ip a Diamond Cluster King. Worth MO-How tin Defaulter spun Hi. 111-Gotten Oain»—Tile People of Newark and the)L.te Jame. H. Karle, At. When a man once descends to the level of the abandoned women of the town, by be coming in any manner associated with them, he is not long in descending to still lurtht-r depths, and, while the inlatuation lasts, may commit almost any crime to enable him to pander to the depraved tastes ot his quon dam companions and the appetite he finds growing upon him. In the case of Jenkins, airested for einbezrling the large 6um of $300,000 from the Pltentx Bank ot this city, this disposition has been more than usually well illustrated. He first robbed—perhaps to protect himself from the importunities oi a fair hut frail woman whom he had met at a concert seloou. When the ice had once been fairly broken be continued to steal to supply his new made acquaintance with money, and to enable him to wallow in the moral filth he had once abhorred. It Is stated that Jenkins was a well known llal/itue of such places as Madame Bell's on Crosby street, and that he was hailed by the female inmates as their best aud most profi table vistor; for he always had his pockets well supplied with money. While he was spending his employers' funds and his own 'time in this way, this man, leading thus a kind of double existence, was looked upon by some persons, who tliougut ‘they knew him quite intimately, as a very slow coach, and the very opposite ot what is sometimes deominated a “fast man." The officers of the bank say that they always supposed him to be a quiet, orderly, sedate and very prosy individual. But they dgl not kuow how to read the secret volume oi his inner life. They had not the “open sesame" to the whited se pulchre. But the “pretty waiters girls” and the frail inmates of various houses of evil re pute in different portions of the city did pos sess that key, and it woujd appear that they used it quite as industriously aud with almost as good results as did that character in the Arabian tales, who, by pronouncing the ca balistic word, was enabled to rob the forty thieves of their secreted tressure. A city detective officer, on Friday night last, succeeded in tracing out a girl by the name of Rosa Allen, an inmate of Madame Bell’s underground establishment in Crosby street, upon whom it was said the prisoner Jenkius had been in the habit of lavishing some of his favors, and, making nimseif known, at once charged her with having in her possession a costly diamond ring, wnich she had received from the alleged embezzler. At first the girl boldly denied ever having bad any presents from Jenkins; but after some conversation the officer prevailed upon her to yield up the ring, of which he had posi tive information, which she fiid with a re markably good grace, bringing forward at the same time a bill of sale of the ornament, from Messrs. Tiffauy <& Cos., dated on the 28th of June last; showing that, in the name of Miss Allen, Jenkins had paid eight hun dred and forty dollais for it. The ring i9 a fine cluster diamond, aud oerliaps worth all he disbursed for it. Alter producing the costly bauble Miss Allen further unbosomed herself, and confessed that Jenkins had fre quently made her presents of large sums in currency, at one time as high as live hundred dollars. It is more than probable that further operations of his that kind of fancy stocks will be develope the police during the fortfieom:-, atiou. maniac About—lie Flu ns tiic Alai,tec or a Whole Family. [From the Chicago 'times.] There is at present confined in the armory n maniac, who, in his paroxysms of madness, is one of the most desperate creatures ever encountered Last Thursday morning the madman took lodgings lor himself and three small children at the Prescott House, corner of Van Buren and Clark streets, registering his name as Henry Smith, Saratoga Springs, N. Y. In the afternoon he went to Mr. Fox, the land lord, aud desired to deposit some money with him, saying he was going to die that night. It was then discovered tor the first time that his mind was deranged, and the land lord dispatched a messenger to Sergeant Hickey, of the police, to inform him of this fact. The Sergeant returned word that, un less the man was violent, the best plan would be to retain him at the bouse and see what demonstration he would wake. The nnu, together with his children, took tea that evening among other guests aud retired to his room. 'The proprietor being constantly engaged about the affairs of his house, thought no more of his mysterious patron until the next evening, when one of the ser vants informed him that Mr. Smith had not been at the table since the day previous. The porter was sent to his room to look after the matter, but was refused admittance. Mr. Fox then went up himself, but was also iu lormed that he could not enter. “ Why don’t you come aud get something to eat,” he said ; ‘‘your children are hungry. They have had no food for twenty-tour hours.” “ We want nothing to eat,” was the reply; “we are going to die to-night.” Mr. Fox then said—ls you do not open the dbor I shall be compelled to force it open. To which Mr. Smith retorted, “Well, I am goiDg to die, but if you break that door down, you will die before I do.” Here the conversation ceased, and Mr. Fox sent again for assistance. In a short time two policemen arrived, und together the party of three endeavored to force the door, but did not succeed. Besides being bolted and locked, it was braced with a bar off the bedstead. They next tried to enter through a side door, which led into an adjacent room, but that, too, had been fastened by tying one corner of a bedquilMo the knob, and the opposite cornel to the bedstead. The door was opened a few inches however, and Mr. Fox, placing his hand inside to untie the bedquilt, received a terrible blow from a dub in tbe hands of the maniac, which nearly broke bis arm Ihe policemen now burst through the door when one of them, who happened to stumble over a trunk, was struck over the shoulders with the clnb and severely injured Tue madman was then seized and manacled Besides the club with which the unfortu nate man had provided himself, a heavy dag- ger was found upon the widow casing. The children were lying crosswise upon tlie bed frightened almost to death, and the eldest' declared that be had arranged to kill them ■ all at midnight. Letters found upon Smith’s person show that his wife is at present an inmate of the msane asylum at Utica, N. Y. A letter from Dr. Gray, the physician of the institution stated that she was improving. He also hud s letter from a brother at Freedburg. Ili inviting Him to bring his children there, aud was provided with railroad passes to St Louis. He is about 35 years ol age, and has been a sergeant in the 15th New York caval ry, as shown by his discharge.

Pkkswbst Giffrakjj, of Hath. —He has a farm of 400 acre”,, named “Cadnja,' about two German miles from Port au Prince. He has 50 or 00 men to work on it. He has no ploughs—the canelields are cultivated with the hoe, a very slow process, but be has a steam engine to grind liis cane. He has ox carts to bring the cane to the mill. The cane is out with a machete (or short thick sword; the same H 9 in Cuba. He bus horses and carriages for bis family, but he rides gener ally on horseback ;he is a good rider. The rice from the ricefields in llayti is cut with knives, by hand; they have no scythes to mow or cradle it with, which makes it a slow process. A farmer, 30 miles from Port au Prince, now here on his way to Liberia, has a farm of 20 acres, including 7 acres of cane, and makes sugar. He takes it in his horse cart to his boat landing, and then by water 20 miles, to Port au Prince, where lie sells it at 3 to 4 dollars per pound, their mo ney (from 18 to 24 cents in gold). He raised 800 pounds of cotton in a year, which he sold in Port au Prince at 5 dollars per pound— (l6 paper dollars equal to one gold dollars) — say 30 cents per pound in gold. He has a plough, aud ploughs his land with a horse ; he has no oxen. Attempt, o Bank Robbery is New Yohji.— The Fire Marshal’s investigation ol the cir cumstances connected with the fire on Satur day eveuibg last, nt G3O Broadway, showed it, as suspected at the time, to have been a piece of incendiarism, and to have bcetwnn uected with a plot to rob the Eighth National Bank. The burglars had actually effected their entrance to that institution anil begun operation, when they were alarmed by the return to it of a night porter, who had’beeu absent for a short time, and in their flight they left behind burglars’ tools, a coat be longing to one of the party, and evidences that, they had already commenced their work. In one of the pockets of this coat were found loaded pistols, aud a letter from one of the robbers to auother one, giving the plan of operations. They no doubt set fire to the building tor the purpose of assisting in their escape. It is supposed that three men were engaged in the attempted robbery and incendiarism, none of whom have yet been arrested. * Off fob Home. —Not a day passes, says the Atlanta Intelligencer, but we see fami lies, with the small remnant of this world’s goods that war has left them, baddled to gether in box cars in transitu for home. It is painful to note the care now depicted on faces that once were joyous and happy.— Time was when tnauy of these did not pre sent a spectacle of abject want so plainly in dicated uow by their scant apparel, but could boast of pleuty in homes where hospitality had a permanent abiding place. How it must wring their hearts—those fond pa rents—to see tiny feet shoeless, aud little flaxen heads go bare in the storm. But the loss of fortune, and a dim fading away of darling hopes into uothingness, are not all the griefs of these pilgrims. Manly forms that went forth in the pride of youth, with a mother’s blessing, have laid down to rest forever in a stranger land. The National Democratic Association have issued au address from Washington, to tbe democracy oi the country, urging them to rally to the support ol Andrew Johnson. The address oi the Association takes strong grounds against conferring upon negroes the rights of citizenship, on the ground that they are unqualified by education, and as a race so greatly inferior to the whites, a»-K> lower the standard of average intelligence by inter mingling. This is declared to be a white mans government and negroes a foreign ele ment which cannot be assimilated. The Im mediate readmission of the rebellous States to the sacred circle, with all their rights and piivileges Unabridged, is also urged upou the ground that the Federal government cannot exist while a portion of the States compris ing it are free, and another portion virtually enslaved by military government. A correspondent of the Louisville Journal, writing from Lexington, Ky., savs that the negro hegira is still going, and the number of colored people who daily leave here seems to be fully as large as it was two weeks ago. Early in the morning, on every road leadiug to the city, negroes, male and female, stout, feeble and crippled, old, middle-aged and pickaninnies, can be seen hurrying to the Provost Marshal’s office, to get magic paper which takes them from under the control of their former owners, and places them at lib erty to wander at will In search of employ ment and the blessings of freedom. Hints to Pendants.— Wm. Cullen Bryant gave the following excellent advice to a young man who ottered him an article for the Evening Po9t: My young friend, I observe that you have used several French expressions in your ar ticle. I think if you will study the English language that you will find it capable of ex pressing all the ideas you may have written, I do not recall an instant when I was tempt ed to use a foreign word, hut that on search in£. I found a bitter one in my own lan guage. A Great Indian War Brbwino All the u? C< . ll i! nt3 f, ° m tlle P lains are to the effect that before the coming on of the winter we shall have on baud the greatest Indian war we have ever fought. Since the massacre of the Chej’ennes by Colonel Chivington, the ludinns have been breaking out into constant hostilities and not a day has passed for six weeks past that the overland telegraph wires usnallv o tnn eeD f o Ut B y®\ era atically at points usually ten or fifteen miles apart. This is a new feature, and indicates a general concert of action on the part of the Indian tribes— H athmrjton Cor. N. Y. World. From Fort re•• Monroe. Fortress Monroe, August 11, 1865.—Tbe son of John Mitchel arrived here last eve ning from Richmond, the object of his visit being to see his father. He succeeded so far as to see General Miles and make kuown his request to him personally; but, having no authority from the War Department for ad mission to the fortress, he could not be al lowed entrance. He was gentlemanly in his request, and took the refusal with like good grace. General Miles told him bis father was Well, which seemed to pacify him much un der his disappointment. Young Mitchel left this morning. He is a fine appearing young man, of agreeable address and conversation. He was officer in the rebel army. RBAL BATATE. VILIIBLE Bill,DlMi I4K r O & SAIiB.
