THE TIMES PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY 31 ORNESTG, JULY 11. 1878. DER HAMILTON A UV1NG SOM OF THE FEDERALIST. Mr. Join C. HamUton'i Recollections of Els Ftnr. His Estimate of Aaron Burr Borne Interesting Talk About Somo BeTolotionary Celebrities sad Early Political Leaden. Bpedal Correspondence of The Times. Long Branch, July 8. Among the noticed guests at the Howland . Hotel is an old gentleman with a nose so boldly acquiline as to be almost square, a pair of small, black ejes, with hazel lights in them, and short, white hair, giving with the nose an aged gladiatorial look to his generally moving figure. He suggests in a slight degree the well - known appearance of the late Reverdy Johnson, a Roman firmness marking bis mouth and profile. He is not more than five feet six or seven in height, In that respect, as well as in the face, suggesting his distinguished sire. It is the son of Alexander Hamilton John C. Hamilton. He was born in 1792, and was in his twelfth year when Aaron Burr killed his father. This event he has a tolerably distinct recollection of. " I recall a single incident about it with full clearness," he said. " My father's residence was in the country, toward the north of New York Island. His law office in the city was rather a shabby affair. The day before the duel I was sitting in a room, when, at a slight noise, I turned around and saw my father in the doorway, standing silently there and looking at me with a most sweet and beautiful expression of countenance. It was full of tenderness, and without any of the business pre - occupation he sometimes had. 'John,' he said, when I had discovered him, 'won't you come and sleep with me to - night?' His voice was frank as if he bad been my brother instead of my father. That night I went to his bed, and in the morning very early he awakened me, and taking my hands in his palms, all four hauds extended, he said and told me to repeat the Lord's Prayer. Seventy - five years have since passed over my head, and I have forgotten many things, but not that tender expression when he stood looking at mo in the door nor the prayer we made togother the morning before the duel. I do not so well recollect seeing him lio upon his deathbed, though I was there. Of course I saw him, but that recollection is only genoral. I went to the funeral at Trinity Church, and vaguely remember that." HAMILTON PERSONALLY. "You get your longevity, Mr. Hamilton, from your mother's family, the Schuylers?" "Partly, no doubt. My mother was of that old Dutch stock, steady and long - lived, the Schuylers and Van Renssclaers. She lived to be ninety - seven, extraordinary in a woman with a deep early grief and so loug a widowhood. But my father would probably have lived the full measure of bis days. In a small person he possessed a fine vitality ; all his organs were sound and his chest deep and his health was superb." "He was black - eyed, as you are?" "No, sir. He had gray eyes; exceedingly clear. His nose was prominent and ho had a beautiful mouth, the centre of tenderness in his face. He wore his hair powdered and tied in a queue. I wore for many years the dress of my father's period kuee breeches, stockings, buckled shoes, etc Yoa see I am a very old man." " Is the statue of your father by Dr. Stone, at Washington city, a good likeness?" "It is fair. Beally, no good likeness of my father exists, although I have seen all that are to be found. Trumbull never got a good picture of my father, although he painted many. There is a bust at my houso for which he sat to Cerae - chi, an Italian. Come and see it, if you wish. I have had a number of curious exploits in chasing up portraits of ray father. Once I heard of a good portrait by an obscure artist, and after following up the family from house to house, traced them to a little street off old Chatham street. In the loft, owned by a washerwoman, was a portrait of Hamilton, a little burnt by being nsed occasionally for a fire screen. I did not make myself known to the woman, though she knew it was the portrait of General Hamilton, and had bought it, she said, 'when we. were up in official life.' Her son came In while we were debating the price and added his influence to let me buy it, which I did, for fifty dollars or little more." "Will Hamilton always remain interred tinder the pyramidal monument in Trinity Churchyard?" I think so, unless thoy should ont a street through there. Some years ago my brother James thought of putting up some memorial to my father, but we did not conclude that it was proper to do that act as a family. A citizen of Boston Mr. Lee, not our connection has given to that city a handsome granite statue of Hamilton." THE BIOGRAPHERS. "Has Hamilton been more fortunate in his biographers?" "I edited for Congress his writings and correspondence, in seven volumes. It is now rare. I also edited 'The Federalist,' with annotations, and published from Hamilton's works a book on the origin and nature of our government. My brother James, who is still living but exhausted in mind, wrote his reminiscences. Congress acted rather grudgingly with the printing of Hamilton's works, and did not dispense copies enough." "The antagonist of Hamilton has been more copiously revealed in books ?'' "Randall's life of Jefferson," said the old gentleman, "has many errors in it. So has Tucker's. As for Parton's so - called life, that is a libelous book. He is capable of deliberately inventing expressions and putting them into the mouths of dead celebrities, in order to emphasize his prejudices. About Mr. Jefferson, there are two kinds of character and politics. Had his first ideas been carried out we never should have had a government at all. Alter he assumed the Presidential responsibility he foreswore that earlier self and had to believe in something organic, constructive and established. For instance, the purchase of Louisiana; that was a high federal act, advocated by my father. Jefferson had to do it aud it was the principal deed of his administration." "Do you not think the founders of the government took too little into consideration the growth of the people aud of power Westward ?" "Perhaps so. My father said that the integrity of the Mississippi river, as an American water, was the greatest point of policy after resolving upon a real government." THE FALL OF FEDERALISM, "How came it, sir, that the stoutest partisans of Hamilton went in and supported Andrew Jackson ?" "On account of their dislike to Adams," said Mr. Hamilton. "John Adams broke up the Federal party by his cooler and incompetence. His son, John Quincy Adams, was Jackson's opponent. The Federal vote went over to Jackson and assisted to inspire him against nullification. Yon remember that Jefferson and John Adams got to writing love letters to each other late in life. Hamilton was their bete noir." "To what do you attribute the fall of the Federal party ?" " To the death of Washington and the excesses of the New England Federalists. These latter cat up so many shines and were so violent that they antagonized New York aud States well disposed toward Washington and Hamilton. General Washington died while Adams was still President. That was a killing blow. He was in complete political accord with Hamilton, and we believe that he would have issued an address to the American people against thedemagogery of Jefferson, Burr and Co. bad he beeu spared to take part in the election. His influence was still formidable, especially in Virginia, and you know the election was so close that it was thrown into Congress." Mr. Hamilton spoke of a recently issncd life of George Cabot as requiring some challengo of inference at his bands, if he had the health to do it, and said he had seen Von Hoist's recent history of the American goverment in German, which I described to him as giving Hamilton credit for tho Constitution and empire of the republic. The sensible octogenarian went ou : "Hamilton," he said, "had no confidence in the temper or self - sacrifice of John Adams. Ho knew that Adams' abundant self - esteem claimed the Presidency instead of General Washington, as soon as the Constitution was adopted. In fact, Adams was disgusted because he didn't get it. His behavior in the Vice Presidency dissatisfied the Washingtonian Federals and they set to work to nominate for the succession Pinckney, of Booth Carolina. Alexander Hamilton wrote a pamphlet for private circulation among the Leads of the party to carry ont this plan. While It was being printed one of Bnrr's men, his subsequent biographer, Davis, corruptod tho printers at Philadelphia and got a copy of that letter. It was published all over the country and helped Adams to be Washington's successor," "Itis related by Partonthat Burr himself took a copy of that pamphlet out of a basket full of them carried by a boy in the streets of Philadelphia." "I guess that Is not so," said Mr. Hamilton, "It was, I think, obtained in the usual way by corrupting the printing office. After Adams . became President ho behaved as Hamilton expected. He quarreled with the Federalists in his Cabinet, put on passage the intolerant alien and sedition acts and broke np the great federal party which hadgianed us a constitution. I approached the subject of Aaron Burr with tome caution and finally asked Mr. Hamilton it he could toll mo what inoasure of intellectual ability he allowed Burr. He replied, aUer a Pft"Bu'rr was adept at cunning aud strategy and rather esteemed it a compliment to be thought to be without principle. Hie moral nature was given to somebody else and be had none. Artful, insinuating, flattering, indifferently ambitions, be got to be so low that he would sell ont bis clients to their opponents and nobody dared trust him with a case. Chancellor Kent told me that in his later days lewd people only went and came about his office. Neither before nor since has any public man in America fallen to such degradation." " Did he not, through his son - in - law. Alston, influence South Carolina to be a Jeffersonian State and repudiate the Pinckneys?" "I don't think his personal influence was equal to his canning. It was in canning that he conceived a duel with my father, whose antagonism to him was more moral than political. Burr saw that in no extremity of political strategy would Hamilton aid Burr's advancement, even to defeat a rival like Jefferson. He had lost the confidence of the Jeffersonians, and argued that, with Hamilton removed, be could combine all the anti - Jefferson elements. He therefore deliberately went into practice before challenging. I have seen two men who loaded his pistols and trained him, both professional men around the shooting galleries. My father fougbt Burr without firing at him, and expected to be killed. He was an Episcopalian, opposed to dnels, but he did not see bis way clear in that period to avoid letting Burr take a shot at him. He went out to be shot and Burr went out to kill." " Mr. Hamilton, while the rank of your father has been steadily rising, have you not also no ticed that General Nathaniel Greene has risen to the highest place of appreciation among the officers ot the revolution ? " "Very justly so," said the son of Hamilton. " My father called him the completest soldier of the devolution, and wanted him put in com' niand when Gates was relieved in the South, He was not, for a while, on the best terms with Washington. But his Southern campaign was the best in that war; the only scientific cam' paign in it. Arnold was the personal genius of Gates' victory over Burgoyne, and Washington's high estimation of his services there led to his appointment in the Highlands, where be ma tured his treason. Putnam, who had previously commanded in the Highlands, was very little thought of as an officer by W ashington." Hamilton's early life. " How did your father obtain the means to at tend Columbia College? Was bis father wealth v?' " No, his fatherwas a Scotchman, who had to scratch for a living in the West Indies. I think he may have had a very little from his mother, who was French. But he had very little from any source. His public employments kept him from earning money by his profession until late in his career. About tho year 1S09 I went to Washington city with my mother she to seek a pension or award lor her husband s military services. Robert Fulton was in the stage with us, and we were all day getting to Princeton, where we were to sleep. Behind the stage Ful ton had a sub - marine torpedo hitched on, which he was taking to Washington. At Princeton we could get no beds, except for my mother, so r ul ton and I sat np all night by the tavern nre. I do not remember anything of the conversa tion, except that Fulton was a gentleman in mind and manners. Politically, I believe, he hart been a Burrite. " " Coming down to the present time, Mr. Ham' ilton, whom, think you, will the Democrats nont' inate for next President?" " It begins to look like Senator Thurman. I guess he is their safest candidate. And tlieEepub' licans talk about Grant. I gave Graut a recep' tion at my house. He went up stairs with mo aud the draft blew the door, with a spring lock on it, fast shut, so that wo could not get ont. Grant looked at me a niinuto aud pulled out two cigars and offered me one. 1 1 don't smoke, Gen eral,' said I ; 'but one of my sons will light it in your honor.' " Gath. "Stop Kite Par." From the St. Louis Globe - Democrat. Colored society at Charlotte, N. C, is fearfully upset by the downlall of Rev. Ed. Eagles, pastor of one of the largest colored Baptist churches in tiiis city. The reverend Lothario is married. For some time past, however, lie lias been on suspiciously intimate terms with a comely young mulatto eirl of his flock. To - night the usual weekly prayer meeting was held, and the minister rose in the pulpit to exhort his hearers to walk in the right way. As he began speaking the deacons of the church came up the main aisle in a body, am! one venerable old "coon" raised his ebony hand and launching his index finger in the direction of the astonished prelate said : 'ftop! stop right dar. A further 'position of de sacred Hcripters ain't a gwine to be allowed from you. No, sub ! yousc been too long a tellin' of his congregation 'bout deiu brighter worlds and you ain't been ieaditig de way ; . wliar 19 dat young sister youse ruined? Does you call dat de right way?" The minister was then told to "abdicate dat pulpit if you don't want to be kicked out." He made tracks. The congregation then held a meeting and expelled him from the pastorate. To - night late he wu arrested for seduction, and he now lies in jail. Mrs. Stewart Goes lTp to the Pennypack. Margaret Stewart, residing in the rear of 1634 Richmond street, the particulars of whose neglect and cruel usage of her children were published in yesterday's Times, wus given a hearing before Alderman L'rian yesterday and was committed to the House of Correction for three months.

A Feep bta the XTnolaimsd Goods Department at the FouiijItuU BaOroad Depot Bow the Odds and Ends Become the Property of th Company's Employes, In the rooms where "baggage for departing trains " is taken, on the east side of the platform of the Pennsylvania Bail road depot in West Philadelphia, space is set apart for an claimed goods. These mean every species of ar ticle that travelers carry with them on railway trains. The absent - minded man, who starts away with a satchel fall of linen and an um brella, puts the former in the rack over his head and the latter in the seat beside him, and gets to reading the paper. The train pulls op at the depot in Philadelphia. The absent - minded man is deep in an interesting article and is the last to leave the car, and he leaves it in a hurry, for he wants to see to his trunk, get a Innch and catch the train for New York. He emerges from the car empty - handed, whisks np to the baggage car, sends his trunk where he wants it, runs into the restaurant, scalds bis month with a cup of steaming coffee and takes the nearest and most natural coarse to indigestion by swal lowing a hot biscuit and pouring in a glass of ice water on top of it, catches up his paper, flies away to the New York train, which in turn flies away with him. Meantime the woman who scrubs cars enters a particular car of the newly arrived train and finds somebody's satchel and umbrella. She turns them over to the baggageman and the bag gageman turns them over to the department for unclaimed goods. The department holds them till the umbrella begins to get moth - eaten, by which time itis the general belief that the. owner isn't going to appear, when it is handed over to the woman who found it or to some of her co - laborers, to whom it is severally acceptable.. The vatise becomes a perquisite for a baggageman or a truckman, who takes it and is thankiui. A CURIOSITY SHOP. The corner for unclaimed goods is half a rod deep with umbrellas and canes. Below them on shelves, in brown paper parcels, are linen dusters, alpacas and spring overcoats aud hats. Scattered around are a wagon load of articles as varied as the tastes and occupations of men - ; cigar hoses with contents untouched, fans, tongs, masons' trowels, dog muzzles, books and pam phlets and blanks and papers, valises, carpetbags, satchels, old red pocket hand kerchiefs done up in bundles, baby's rattles, a folding chair or two and some rubber shoes. The umbrellas aud canes were, as seen yester day, of every kind crook - handled, knob - handled, straight - handled, handles of ebony, ivory, nickel and polished wood. Somo of the umbrellas were good, but the majority were of the cheap stamp, aud some suggested the suspicion that their owners were only too glad to get away from them. So with the valises. A few were good, but the bulk of them were old aud rusty aud the baggagemen called them pinch sides." They looked as though they had stood near a fire. The carpet - bags were of tho old ante - railroad style. It was noticeable that there was nothing in all the group that might be called excellent, excepting two silk umbrellas, one with an ebony handle These the baggagemen said would very likely be claimed. "They aro too good to go unclaimed," remarked one. " Goods that's unclaimed," said he, "is generally goods that isn't worth much. If there is anything worth much the owner '11 be after it. That's been the experience all along. I've got a drawer full of trinkets over there. Come, and I'll show you 'em." A PKAWEE FULL OF WHAT NOT. The drawor contained one revolver, a huge jack - knife, a brass watch, a large piece of moss agate, an old - fashioned pistol, a duplex counterfeit detector, about two dozen note books, between fifty and sixty pocket - books, none very good ; a patent cigar - lighter, rusty and useless ; a set of gold sleeve - buttons, in a case ; half a dozen imitation morocco fans, a dozen pair of spectacles and a child's ivory - handled whistle. Most of these articles were lost at the Centennial. The great bulk of unclaimed goods como in during summer, when people are traveling most. In winter little is picked up in the cars. About fifty per cent, of the goods are claimed. The railroad company has no power to sell the balance by auction as the express companies have. When the accumulation becomes so great as to take up an undue amount of space the goods are distributed among tho baggagemen and truckmen. Any goods that nobody will have are thrown out. The centennial year was the greatest ever known for unclaimed goods. Umbrellas and canes were particularly plentiful. Valises and satchels aud hat - boxes were likewise abundant. Every article that is lost has a ticket attached the moment it gets into the baggage room, telling when found and on what train. In the pocket - books found there is once in a while money. If the sum is large it is sure to be claimed, but if small the owner seldom turns up. IS MARY ANDERSON A BRIDE? Positive Iteassertions of the Story That She Is Now Sirs. Fremont. From the Louisville (ivy.) Argus. Last Sunday the Argus published a statement that Miss Mary Anderson was married on May 30 to a son of General John C. Fremont. The next day the Courier - Journal, which had not heard of tho affair until it was published in the Argus, endeavored to apologize for its ignorance of the story of the marriago by stating that it had been extensively discussed in Louisville the week before, and that the discussion had re sulted in a decision that the story is not true. We repeat that the story is true, and will hold to this until some person who knows what he is talking about will deny it. It has been argued that because the irieuds ot Mrs. Fremont, nee Mary Auderson, know nothing about it that the marriage could not have taken place. In reply to this it need only be stated that if Mrs. Fro - mont hail decided to let her friends know about the matter she could have had the news of the ceremony made public She is an actress, and it is wefl known that an actress injures her finan cial value by marriage. This reason of itself would have been sufficient to induce her to keep the marriage quiet. Additional evidence is furnished by the Frankfort Yeoman of last Thursday, which says: " From information received in a private letter to a lady of this city, there can no longer be any doubt that Miss Mary Anderson has become Mrs. Lieutenant Fremont. She was recently married in New York city, and immediately after the marriage Mrs. Fremont took steamer for Liverpool, while the lieutenant boarded his own ship. They will meet in Paris and spend the honeymoon there. It has not yet been definitely as certained whether she will leave the stage or not." The National Industrial, of yesterday, fur nishes still more conclusive evidence. Its editor, Colonel Blanton Duncan, is a personal friend of General William Preston, to whom Mrs. Fre mont wrote the story of the marriage. He says : "The announcement by the Argus of the marriage of Miss Mary Andorson to a son of General Fremont has been disputed. The authority for the statement was Mrs. Fremont,who wrote the fact in a letter to General William Preston, from whose family it came to a young lady of Louisville. The Argus was, thorefore, solid. " The evidence is all in favor of the statement that Miss Mary Anderson, the actress, has been married. FRENCH TAPESTRY. A Carpet for an Apartment in Fontainebleau Costing Sixty Thousand Dollars. From the Pall Mall Gazette. The display of tapestry at the Exhibition by the Gobelins is given a very prominent place, and naturally attracts a great deal of attention ; for ever since the decline and fall of the great Flemish manufactories those of France have occupied the first position. Tapestry was introduced into France in consequence of the introduction of Italian architecture. The one was a necessary adjunct of the other. About 1543 Francis I. established a royal manufacture of tapestry at Fontaineblean, and a second was shortly afterward created in Paris at the Hospi tal of the Trinity, in it4 nenry iv. introduced Italian workmen, and placed them iu the Jesuit establishment of the Faubonrg St. An - toine, whence they removed to the Louvre nine years later. In 1001 Flemish workmen were engaged, and were obliged to keep eighty looms going; and subsequently tbo manufactory was removed to the uooenus, wnuo an extra atener, with Italian workmen, was opened in the gardens of the Tuileries for the fabrication of high - warp tapestry for the King. Iu 16'2 tho great Minister Colbert centralized the tapestry works, and purchased the Hotel of the Gobelins. The painter Lebrun was placed at the head of the establishment, which, under him, and in the space of twenty - seven years manufactured four thousand one hundred and ten square aunes of high warp and four thousand three hundred square aunes of low warp. It is calculated that this tapestry, in money value of to - day, cost the State j2,000,000. About two hundred and fifty workmen were employed, and were paid by the piece. A square aune of high warp was paid 450 livres, or $540, and the low warp not quite so much, and this represented the labor of a year. To - day the Gobelins manufactory possesses a budget of a little over (40,000 a year. The ad ministration costs $5,000 ; the workmen's salaries, $19,000 ; the dyers', $32,000; the school of design, $2,000; raw material and models. $6,400. The manufactory now only employs fifty - three workmen, twenty - two of whom are engaged in making "la Savonnerie" carpets. The tapestry workers are very indifferently paid. Thus, ten workmen only received $400 per annum and this after twenty years' service. Others receive only half that sum, after a long apprenticeship. But it appears there is no difficulty about recruiting for the Gobelins, on account of the prestige which is attached to the place because the tapissiers are lodged, because each man has a little garden in the grounds surrounding the hotel, and because, when old age comes on, a pension of from $200 to $250 a year is granted. The Gobelins, too, is a kind of family concern. The tapissiers are tapissiers from father to son. M. Duruy, who was Minister of Pablie Instruction under the Empire and a good and liberal - minded minister, too belonged to the family in question. His father was one of the head workmen at Gobelins ; be himself was an apprentice, and two of bis cousins and several other relatives are to - day in tho establishment. One of them, M. Cainille Duruy, wove "Le Glacier," copied from a picture by Mazerolle, which is in the Exhibition. The cost of production of the two' large compositions of Lebrun, called " Terre " and " Eau," which are twenty - five sqnare metres, amounts to $23,000 each. As a specimen of " la Savonnerie " work two carpets are exhibited, the price of which is enongh to astonish one even after the tapestry. One carpet destined to cover the apartment at Fontaineblean which was inhabited by Pius YII. during his captivity, cost $60,000. There is a tendency on the part of the present director of the Gobelins to give np copying pictures, and to confine his tapestry to the decorative art. MR, BOLAN'S WATCH. A Beautiful - Looking Time - Piece, in 'Which Its Owner Takes No Delight. Mr. Bolan, a tailor, at Sixth and Walnut streets, possesses a very handsome gold watch. Its cases shine like a looking - glass and dazzle the eyes. Everybody that sees it is taken with it. Still Mr. Bolan takes no delight in it In his thoughtful moods ho takes it out, turns it over, looks at it gloomily and silently, and then placing it in a soft buckskin pouch meditatively restores it to his pocket. Mr. Bolan 's strange conduct toward the watch has more than once attracted the attention of his friends. Yesterday he was talking about swindling and swindlers. " Why look here," said Mr. Bolan, and he drew from his pocket the shiny - cased watch in its buckskin pouch ; " do you see that watch ?" The party addressed said he did, and his eyes dilated with admiration. " Feel it," said Mr. Bolan. The request was duly observed only to make it all the more an object of admiration. "Ain't it a fine - looking watch?" asked Mr. Bolan, with the air of a man who was "leading" up to a crisis. The second party answered that he had never seen a finer. " Filled 1" shrieked Mr. Bolan, in tragic accents, striking an attitude and holding the watch out at arm's length, " Filled 1" r illed r "Aye ; only a little gold put on the outside of the cases ; that s all. Mr. Bolan suddenly thrust the watch into tho buckskin pouch, thrust the buckskin pouch and watch collectively into his pocket, aud didn't speak a word tor one minute. " I had a watch," said he, " that cost fifty dol lars and a gold chain that cost seventeen dollars. A man came in here the other day with th watch and wanted to trade. I was busy and didn't want to be bothered. 'Well, now look at the watch,' said he. 1 looked at it and asked him what it was worth. He said it was worth fifty dollars, I asked him about the movement, He said it was a Wall ham movement. I said if it was worth fifty dollars I wouldn't mind trading with him. He assured mo it was worth that, 4 Trade for a few days,' said he, ' and if you don t like it we 11 trade back.' On that understanding I traded him my watch and chain for it.

Last week a large exploring party, composed of scientists and others, was organized at Asheville for the purpose of visiting the scene of the eruption and milking a thor ough investigation. The Enquirer correspondent on the spot telegraphs to - day as follows; "Bald Mountain is in a high state of excitement and uproar. Two thousand people have visited the vicinity to - day, but the majority of tliem were afraid to go near the chasm. The main opening is certainly much wider than it was a month ago when 1 was here, and our party decide that the abyss is unfathomable. It is now a settled fact that the whole of Bald Mountain is hollow. I learn that on yesterday great volumes of smoke were emitted from three different oienings, nnd to - dny the atmosphere is filled with sulphurous fumes. We will commence with a thorough exploration to - morrow. It wilt be remembered that the first eruption 01 Buld Mountain took place in May last." The Misses Finiiegan's Muscle. Bridget and Kate Finnegan are two young, well - dressed and meek - looking girls, residing at l,joo Carlton street. About once a mouth they are brought to the Central Station. Yesterday Eliza Gorman was the complainant and she exhibited a black eye as a proof of Kate's prowess and told in dread tones how tile sisters had promised to cut out the hearts ot both her and her child, and, in case that did not produce death, to swing them both by the heels and dash out their brains against the wall. The Misses Finneean said it was onlv a little familv jar, but .Magistrate Pole held them m ffOOu bail aud locked them up in a cell. A Missing Pocket - Book. The other night, in the Girard House, Col, Edward Johnson dropped his pocket - book and some one picked it up and neglected to return it. It is not the $50 bank note that was in the pocket - book that the Colonel is anxious to see, but if he could only recover his privato papers and the lock of his mother's hair he will willingly forget that the &0 note was in the pocket - book and in addition reward the finder with &5 more.

' By this time day began to break and large number of fugitives came driving along. They appeared so utterly demoralized that I brought down four companies from the fort, and posted two companies across the road with view to check the rout, and two companies amid a field to guard the men and animals I intended to cor ral. Ambulances came up containing the dead bodies of officers with frightened soldiers sitting upon or lying beside them, and every horse that day, whether attached to a loaded - down vehicle or not, carried two or three men, sometimes four, while the retreating artillerymen, with only the caissons of their guns brought from the field, had them literally covered with men. In this throng were the carriages of members of Con gress, distinguished gentlemen, newspaper corre spondents and others, many of them bareheaded, and all anxious to diminish the distance from Washington. Wagons of provisions. Quarter masters and commissary stores, I ordered into the fort, as we had but three days' rations. So frightened were the teamsters that in one in stance they cnt the traces of their teams, in order to get out of the fort as quickly as possible. With this supply of pork, beans and flour thus ob tained, the men of tho Seventeenth not on duty were set to work to construct bomb - proofs for wounded men in case of action. Tho guard on the road had stopped the retreating rabble. and I had collected in the field near the fort between two and three hundred officers' horses and about four thousand meu. of all regiments. costless, hatless and shoeless, with not twenty muskets among them all. I then sent Colonel Morris back through the fields to examine the road and report its condition. It was raining neavuy; the roads were broken and muddy and the fugitives in a sorry plieht. While out upon the'road the adjutant of the Seventeenth came to me with the report that the fort was filled with men of the United States Army who had come in irom the rear over the drawbridge. On entering the fort I saw coming toward me Colonel J. H. McCunn, of the Thirty - seventh New York Volnnteers; Colonel John McCIoud Murphy, of tne fiftieth JNew York Volunteers (afterward the Fifteenth Engineers) ; Colonel James Kerri gan, of the Twenty - fifth New York Volunteers, and Colonel W. H. Christian, of the Twenty - sixth New York Volunteers. The conversation between these gentlemen was neither soldierly nor polite. Colonel Kerrigan was telling Colonel Mcuunn very coolly that he was a very poor po lice justice, and a worse soldier, and he would see him in a hot place before he woutd obey an order he gave. Colonel Murphy said he thought Kerrigan was about right. Colonel Christian, being a mild - mannered man, said nothing; but Colonel McCunn, taking me one side, said: " Colonel, here are my orders from treneral Scott." He was ordered by General Scott to take command of these four regiments, go to Fort Ellsworth with this force, and prevent the inroad of the victorious Contederates. "But," said the colonel, "although I have these orders I will waive them for rank, and as you rank me I will report to you for orders." On going back and informing the other gentlemen of Colonel McCunn's decision they expressed themselves perfectly satisfied, and said they would obey any orders I gave them. Colonel McCunn having been a police judgo, and somewhat familiar with police duties iu New York, 1 considered him the proper man to send to Alex andria to patrol the city and prevent outrage and robbery by the fugitives. He wa3 therefore ordered to Alexandria to perform that duty, aud open warehouses and other large buildings in which to house the worn - out meu. THE WEATHER WE HAVE. The Thermometer Interviewed About the Heat of This and Other Summers. "Ninety - five and a half degrees" was all that the shaded thermometer could be made to say yesterday, despite the belief of nearly a million sufferers that the mercury must be among the one hundred and forties, especially in the re flected heat from the walls and sidewalks. Ex cept Monday it was the hottest day of tho year, but a heavy thunder shower in the ovening re duced the temperature delightfully. While the mean temperature for the last ten days is greater than that of the corresponding period of last year, it is considerably less than the mean for the first ten days of July, 1876. The record of de grees for the three terms, obtained from Dr. Hecker's books, at the Pennsylvania Hospital, is as follows : Day. 1 2 8 4 5 678 0 10 July, 1876 98 101 95 99 98 93 94 103 102 100 July. 1877 95.5 87 83 85 88 86 83 83.5 93 89 July, 1878 90.5 92 94 95 92.5 92 92 96 91 95.5 It is only since the first of this month that the present summer has been exceeding that of last year in temperature. The mean and maximum of May, 1677, were 62.81 and 9o respectively, and of last May, 62.86 aud 87 respectively. The mean and maximum of June, 1877, were 74.13" and H7.5" respectively, aud ot last June 69.08 and 94 respectively. The rainfall since the 1st of last June has been considerably less than that of the corresponding term in 1877. In June of last year thero was rain on fourteen days, the fall being 5.56 inches. Last June the fall was only 4.75, there being but eleven rainy days. This fall, however, was over twice tho amount that fell during June of the Centennial year. Notwithstanding the present month's excess of temperature over that of the first ten days of Jnly, 1877, there has been no rain since last month except a shower on each of the last three evenings, while on the other hand rain fell upon seven of tho first ten days of July last year. KILLED BY THE HEAT, Three Men Whom the Hot Spell Proved Too Much For. The oppressive heat of yesterday prostrated many people throughout the city aud several dropped dead upon the sidewalks. Francis Eafferty, residing in the rear of 907 Ontario street, fell dead at Thirteenth street and Girard avenue. John Slavon, of 1607 Carver street, fell dead at Seventeenth and Lombard streets. On Chestnut street, opposite The Times oflice, John Campbell, 50 years of age, residing at 2930 Federal street, who had just left the store of his employer, John W. Everman, of 119 Market street, was suddenly overcome with tho heat and fell to the sidewalk. Ho was carried to the Central Station and a dispensary physician called in, but the man died in half an hour.
