Fiom the New 1 Orleans Times, October 25.
A New Orleans IlnnkrrSiviii
«3l<-<1 out nf $15,000,
About two weeks ago a solia looking
gentleman, with clerky air and business
habits, arrived in this city from New
York, accompanied by his good lady.
His visit was specially directed to a
young, high-toned and popular mer
chant, wbo lately advertised in the New
York paper- for a partner with a capital
to engage in a lucrative branch business.'
There was an nir about the new comer '
peculiarly attractive—a scorn of all show
and sham, a devotion to strict office
habits, and an exhibition of quickness
and nptituda well calculated to impress
h e-ell 2t - nif.t _. ir. ...
\ -'cv.o ft tend, in the SDortcet end most
-iuoiness-like terms, that he was out of
employment, had seen the advertise- i
ment, examined tho reference' and en
terl rise, liked it, concluded to go in, and
here he was. Perhaps his capital was
too limited, hut it was all he had, con- !
sis'ed of thirty five thousand dollars
tight exchange, a uote of fifteen thou
sand dollars, already due, gilt edges,
&a., and—there it was. If, upon re
flection, our friend thought they could
make terms, why so; if, on refl etii.n, he
thought differently, why so, also; no
hurry, be would call again to morrow,
and —good morning. The next day’s
sun brought, punctuii! to the appointed
time, the commercial candidate. Victim
had decided to entertain tho proposition
favorably. Here again the systematic
merchant shoue forth. Os course a
proper knowledge of each other’s pri
vate ar and commercial standing was the
uiain necessity lie had already satls
fi and himself upon Iknse poin's with re
gard to his New Orleans frier and before
he packed a shirt to come here—trust
him f.r that—he now begged leave t"
r*f rto liis own credential*, and they
were in the shape of about fifty Inters,
all speaking in the highest rra« o f the
bearer, and all stamped with the print
ed headings of the writer.-;' firms, some
of which were among the most promi*
n n ct men in New York city, A* if
tbeso were not enough, he proceeded to
"ile Petit n on Ossa by the pr; duction of
one from G wercor Fenton, of New
York, exhibiting the closest iulimacy
with i!*at official, and a cot fi lcr.ce in bis
integrity, capacity, aLd Lonely rathei
rare for the diamond cut diamond ag
welivein, Tho greatest appan ut lati
tude was allowe 1 U r tLo detection of im
posture, supposing any existed, ! ut so
neatly and unblushingly was the game
played that not the least suspicion was
awakened either in the mind of the vic
'irn or the order and more disinterested
heads whom bo very wietly coosubed
Unlike the course of true love, this
union ran smooth; the buns were pub
lished under the usual 00-partnership
head; an expensive < flico was engag'd
in opposition to the younger and more
prudent merchant, whose ideas of econo
my were further outraged by Now York
in insisting upon having tho office car
peted. lie intended to introduce “now
wrinkles” into business here ; he saw
no reason why he shouldn’t be comfort
able. He did introduce new wrinkles,
and became dc-idedly comfortable as
follows: After a day or two elapsed, he
manifested his read,ness to call at the
hank and arrange the financial basis of
his bnsinrgs. Thither the partners went;
the letters were there exhibited anew,
the bills of exchange scaled and d< pos
i’ed, he not desiring to use thorn until
trade had fairly commenced The pres
ident was equally charmed with him ;
thoroughly posted upon the mysteries
of finance, as be was with the details of
trade, petsinally acquainted with seine
of the correspondents of the bund, as
well as with the nature of its husiuess,
he speedily established r confidence iu
the mind of the astute financier far
more profitable, as aftirward proved,
than thi.t with the young merchant.—
Reforo leaving he showed a letter fiom
a New York firm of well known stand
ing, requesting the presid. n‘ in question
to pay for them the fifteen thousand dol
iar nate. if requested by the bearer,and
draw at sight, w ; th comn i-sions and ex
change as u-ual. He stated that he !
might probably r<quire the money in a
few days, and would they accommodate
him, or rather his New York friends ?
The president was di-posed to do so, but
prudeotly suggested the amount be
passed to the credit of the firm This
did not comport with our fricud’s busi
ness ideas; good benorediy he ct.uldu’t
thtok of this; partner might die before
they were fairly under way ; no, do, i(
was a private matter. If he received it
it must be on those conditions, aad he
smiled a ba,'py, careless, shrewd smile,
the freemasonry of which is so well
known in t>auß circles, and which went
direct to the president’s heart, who
would only be “too happy to oblige.”—
At tho conclusion of this pleasing in
terview tho two partner’s strolled up tho
street. New York’s wife, he said, wav
anxious lo see Mobile; be believed ho
w uild fako a run over there.' New Or
leans assented. Ho would be back the
day after to-morrow, and bo at the office
at 11 o’clock, sharp Would bis part
ner wait for him if he happened to be a
few minutes late ? Certainly partner
would, and he did. He waited the
whole tl y. He is wailing vet, and the
.enterprising merchant has yet to make
j his appearance, either at the cfTi ie or
anywhere else Ile did go somewhere,
; bui before going he visited the bauk and
Lad another chat with the president aud
walked off with the fifteen thousand dol
lars. No suspicion was aroused for two
j i —. . 1., acm uvt-i uic Mites
I revealed tho fact that the letters and
; bills of exchange were all forgeries and
i the dashing New Yorker a swindler.—
That fit in has since been dissolved.
I 1 hat bauk president has grown suspi
. ciousof all knowing busiuess-meu. He
look* tharper at visitors than of old,
and his depositors are beginning to coai
plaiu of discount strings beiug drawn
tight. The glo-m hanging about the
financial portals of his institution, and a
vaoaut. t ffice, wi'h a roll of carpeting, to
let on Caroudelet street, is the sum aud
result of all the brilliant anticipations
of that linn with the new wrinkle.
Au Ilitimua Haunted House.
Greenburg, Indiana, has a senra
tion; it being nothing short of a haunt
ed house. The Herald of that town
says the houso is situated near the
railroad track, and had been occupied
some months by an liish family The
ghost makes its appearance every
night, just as the clock strikes twelve,
and for half an hour makes itself at
hoino by throwing chairs, tables, cook
ing utensils, etc., about the room, in a
promiscuous manner. The family
stood it as long as po siblo, and then
moved out Another family moved in,
but got enough in one night. The
owner offer and twenty five dollars to
any one wlio would “lay” the ghost,
and a young man, pos-essed of more
courage than money, offered to do the
job Hu armed himself, aud repaired
to tire bouse. J us 1 as the clock struck
I .he hour of midnight, a slight noise
was heard, followed by a groan. About
i his time doors ja the uoper part of thfe
I house commenced shutting ia * mys
terious manner. This continued for
some time, when the door of the room
in which tho young man was sittin"
sudden'y opened, anil a lady, dressed
in black, and deadly pale, stood before
him. He started toward her, w hen
she vanished through tho door, and on j
going to the door, she was nowhere to I
be aeon. The house, several years ego, i
was the scene of a moat brutal rnur- |
dor. is which a man killed his wife by j
cutting her heart nut. Ho left the
country and did not return until the
war broke out, when he enlisted in a
New York regiment, and was killed
during the storming of Vicksburg.

Men Wanted. — The great watt of

a disgrace tow speak disrespeklul of a
rooster. Hrigham Young’s coat of
arms is a rooster tn full blast, crowing
till he is almost bent over double back
The flesh ov the rooster is very sinr

to distinguish the diffrenue, espeshly
in yure soup. Roosters are the pugjy

Roosters, according to profane histo

right, were formerly a man, who come
su idenly upon one ov the heathen
gods at a time when he want prepared
tew see company, and wnz for that of
fence rebuilt over into the fust rooster,
and waz f l'evei afterward destined to

fighting abilities, and for their polite

There is a great variety ov pedigree
among the roost, r race, but for stiddv
bizuess, give me the old-sash dominiqtie
rooster, shert—legged; and when they
walk they alwus strut, and their buz
