go, it came out incidentally that he had written a novel called Warwick, of which seventy-five thousand copies had been sold, and another called Delaplaine, that had gone up to forty-five thousand. Another author of the same school, known as Ned Buntline, is said to have earned sixty thousand dollars in a single year by his efforts; and still another, Sylvanus Cobb, Jr., is known to have habitually received a salary of ten thousand dollars for publications equally popular. No community can do discussed, compared, and criticised; he is himself admitted into the Contemporary Review as a valued contributor; Mr. Lang writes books with him; his success lies not merely in his publisher's balance, like that of Mr. Walworth, Mr. Cobb, or Ned Buntline, but it is a succes d'estime. When, on the other hand, one opens an American daily paper to see what is said about the latest Haggard publication, one is likely to happen upon something like this: We grudge it the few necessary lines . . .

From Alexandria. Alexandria,May 14.--Washington and Alexandria are quiet to-day. The steamer Pawnee is still menacing this city. New volunteer companies are rapidly organizing.

ld blood by the ruthless soldiery. Among the pet officers of the Northern army are, Billy Wilson, Daniel E. Sickles, Billy Mulligan, E Z. C. Judson, alias Ned Buntline, and others equally prominent and notorious for their deeds of villainy. Wilson is a rowdy of the most disgraceful stamp, the leader of a gang of roughs and tlived, but he will find fighting the South a different affair from that of a ward fight in New York. E. Z. C. Judson, better known by his nom de plume of "Ned Buntline," has received an appointment as Colonel in the army of subjugation. This blast upon humanity — this defamer of woman's virtue, but now valiant son of wars, wfrom receiving his just deserts, by the interposition of some gentleman who saw the castigation administered. He, for a long time, published a paper entitled "Ned Buntline's Own," which paper was filled with the most foul slanders on the virtue of woman, and the most bitter attacks on the religious prejudices of a portion of our
One good of the separation. We were in a bookstore the other day when a lady inquired of the bookseller if he had any of the monthlies. He replied, "no madam, we cannot get them now." The answer was one delightful to hear. It is a blessing that the whole tribe of Northern periodicals are shut out from the South. A more perfect deluge of abominable trash never spread over a nation. They were poisoning alike the morals and the taste of our people. We trust never to see one of them South of Mason and Dixon's line. It is one of the most decided blessings of the war that we are rid of them at least for the time, and, we trust, forever. Pandora's box never let loose a greater evil than the detestable Northern periodicals from those issued by the rascally Harpers ("harpies") to "Ned Buntline's Own." Let us be thankful that they are shut out, and let our literary men and publishers get up some really good and enterprising works to take their places.
table. Gen. Ferry had too much regard for the ' key in the wood pile,' and carried his Tribune so far as to disgust not only the army bu citizens of the town generally, everybody supposing that Gen. F. was so particularly attached to Sambo as to have no kind of regard for white men at al in a subordinate position, however, abolition Generals have little power for harm. Among the recruits recently arrived for the New York mounted rifles noticed the somewhat famous E. Z. C. Judson. (Ned Buntline,) who had enlisted as a private. Ned was in good spirits and health, and sober, and as full of patriotism as he used to be of a hiskey. His love of adventure will now be gratified on land, as it has been on the sea and if he survives the term of enlistment his literary talent will no doubt be turned to the manufacture of thrilling army tales. From Western Virginia--Stampede of negroes. A letter from Gallipolis, Ohio situated on the river, says 300 runaway negroes from Western V
Progress of the war. Affairs at Suffolk — alarm because the rebels do not attack. A late letter in the Baltimore American, dated Suffolk, the 14th, and written by the notorious "Ned Buntline," says: So far we have not only a few men from our advanced cavalry pickets, in killed, wounded or taken prisoners, and more than over the account by killing some end taking others prisoners of the enemy. Several have came in from their sale, and I have not heard of one desertion from our forces Gen.

My belief in this is strengthened because such dash
