An official negro minstrel. --Lieut. Pendergrass, of the Seventy-first Regiment of New York, who with twenty-two of his men worked one of the guns of the Anacosta, on the occasion of the recent attack upon Aquia Creek, is a member of Bryant's band of negro minstrels. He is also the proprietor of a New York "rum mill" and gambling hell — the headquarters of John C. Heenan, the Benicia Boy, and the bristle-headed fraternity of fighters generally. He is a little man with a very large voice, a pock marked face, and never more in his element than under a nigger wig, and a physiognomy of burnt cork, dangling away his part in a minstrel performance, upon a triangle.--Such is the "elite" of the New York Seventy-first.
A half-witted darkey calling herself Maria Buck, was arrested and carried to the City Hall yesterday, for not having a certificate of her freedom. She said she was a resident of Rocketts old field, and promising to move in that direction speedily, the Mayor directed her discharge.
Accidental Sheeting. --An accident occurred yesterday about 4 o'clock at the pistol gallery, corner of 14th and Main streets, by which Mr. James L. Smither, dry goods merchant of this city, was dangerously wounded by a ball discharged from a Colt's pistol in the bands of Mr. Jos. Brummel. Messrs. B. and S. were at the gallery trying their own pistols; S. was standing on one side, and B. having just discharged one barrel of his pistol, was in the act of replacing it in his pocket, when one of the barrels was by some means discharged, the ball striking S. in the abdomen, passing across and lodging in the muscular part. Dr. Burton, who was in attendance, probed the wound and gives the opinion that the ball did not enter the cavity of the stomach, which leaves considerable room to hope that S. will get over the wound. Sundry gentlemen were standing in a group with Mr. S. when the ball struck him.

Gen. Cadwallader. We had supposed that Gen. Cadwallader, who succeeded Gen. Butler in command at Baltimore, was a gentleman, if not a soldier. Some of the Baltimore journals were disposed to congratulate themselves and the public generally up
perty without warrant of law; or commit any of the outrages upon private rights which had disgraced the administration of Butler. Better things might be expected from Gen. Cadwallader--at least so said, and doubtless thought these journals, and many s scarcely necessary now to say. The South declares that Cadwallader will leave a name in Baltimore as hateful as that of Butler, for whilst he had the tact to avoid making himself personally obnoxious to the citizens, he has contrived to make the li ter, a robbery which was more bare-faced, and less defensible, even under the tyrant's plea of necessity, than any act of Butler's--who confined his seizures to military arms belonging to the city, or suspected to be actually in course of transshipme
