Startling Embezzlement.

--Mr. Harry T. Hunter, the conferential clerk of Messrs. Coleman & Withers, of Carondelet street, who held their power of attorney and had their entire confidence, drew seventeen hundred dollars last Saturday and absconded from the city, going through Texas via the Opelousas railroad. It is supposed he is en route for Mexico. So far it is impossible to tell how much money he has embezzled from his employers, though it is supposed to be about fifty thousand dollars. He left their accounts in such confusion it will take them some time to ascertain how they stand. The affair is the more remarkable, as they would not have exposed or discharged him had he confessed his fault to them and asked forgiveness. He left a young wife here, worse than widowed by this reckless stop.-- N. C. True Delta, 25th.
