ed for San Juan del Norte, with the family, composed of Mrs. Sherman, Lizzie, then less than a year old, and her nurse, Mary Lynch. Our passage down was uneventful, and, on the boats up the Nicaragua River, pretty much the same as before. On reachi and as usual the trip partook of the ludicrous--Mrs. Sherman mounted on a donkey about as large as a Newfoundland dog; Mary Lynch on another, trying to carry Lizzie on a pillow before her, but her mule had a fashion of lying down, which scared her, d a native boat, which had to be kept outside the surf. Mrs. Sherman was first taken in the arms of two stout natives; Mary Lynch, carrying Lizzie, was carried by two others; and I followed, mounted on the back of a strapping fellow, while fifty or a hundred others were running to and fro, cackling like geese. Mary Lynch got scared at the surf, and began screaming like a fool, when Lizzie became convulsed with fear, and one of the natives rushed to her, caught her out of Mary's arms, and car

State in what manner you would rather live — whether scattered among the whites, or in colonies by yourselves? Answer. I would prefer to live by ourselves, for there is a prejudice against us in the South that will take years to get over; but I do not know that I can answer for my brethren. (All but Mr. Lynch, a missionary from the North, agreed with Frazier, but he thought they ought to live together, along with the whites.) . . . . . . . . . Eighth Question. If the rebel leaders were to arm the slaves, what would be its effect? Answer. I think they would fight as long as they were before the bayonet, and just as soon as they could get away they would desert, in my opinion. . . . . . . . . . Tenth Question.

Ward, a soldier, arrested for assaulting a comrade in the Virginia Hospital, was dismissed with an admonition.--James Lynch, charged with assaulting Julia Cronin last Saturday night, appeared before the Mayor yesterday, and, after an unsuccessful effort to prove a practical application of Lynch law, was set at liberty. There was some testimony about scandalous language, a hatchet, a brass candlestick, and some stolen "today," which the reporter did not definitely comprehend. Mrs. Cronin was afterwards required to give security for her future good behavior, she having threatened to take the life of Mary Lynch.
ry worst use to which you can put a man is to hang him;" but that was said before the day of these army vultures, that have no more conscience than the Neapolitan beggars, who hold out one hand to receive your aims and rifle your pockets with the other. There are several store and sutler shops that are well patronize, which should be abated as nuisances, and I am glad to hear that attention is being drawn to them. If there is any crime that deserves being brought before the tribunal of "Judge Lynch," it is the crime of imposition upon soldiers. A few days since, a man was arrested here for buying honey at ten cents per pound and selling it in the camps for forty cents. There are many such cases that ought to be reported; and, if some one would take the trouble, the dishonest speculators would meet their deserts. As I write, one company of the Washington Artillery, under Lieut. Garnett, is returning from target practice. The appearance of any of this fine corps in our streets
