We call the attention of all baying relations and

induced by exposures and privations incident to camp
life. In the lists, published almost daily its the news

that a very large proportion are suffering from debili
ty. Every case of that kind can be readily cured by
Hoolland's German Bitters. Diseases resulting from
disorders of the digestive organs are speedily removed.
We have no hesitation in seating that, if these Bitters
were freely used among our soldiers, hundreds of lives
might be saved that. °theme ice will be lost.
We call particular attention to the following re

nation's heroes, whose life, to use his own language,

A Detective's Story.
The following is a true story, by a
late well known member of the detee.
Live service, and, with the exception
of some names of persons and pia•
ces, is given preeisely.as be himself
Late on Friday afternoon, in the
latter part of Nov.lB—, I was sent
for by the chief of the New York po
lice, and was told there was a case
for rue.' It was a counterfeiting af
fair. Notes had been forged on a:
Pennsylvania bank; two men had
been apprehended, and were in cue•
tody. The first, Springer, had turn
ed State's evidence on his accomplice,
Who, according to his account, was
the prime mover in the business.=
This man—Daniel Hawes . by name
—had transferred the notes to a third
party, of whorb nothing had been
ascertained except that he was a
youna man; wrote a beautiful hand,
and tiad been in town the Monday
before. He was the man I was to
It was sundown when I left the
Superintendent's office. I had not
Much to guide me; there were hun
dreds of young men who wrote a
beautiful hand. and had been in town
lastbiondaY. But I did not trouble
mySelf about what I did not knoW ;
I confined myself to what I- did
know. Upon reflection I thought it
probable that NY bIAN bad been in
intimate ,relations with Hawes for
thelast few days—probably since the
preceding Monday—although it was
not k-:nown that he bad been in town
since that day. He might r►ot be a
resident in the city ; but 1 determin•
ed to seek him here—isinee, if he had
not left town before the arrest of
Springer and Hawes, he would nut
just now run the risk of falling into
the hands of the police by going to
any railroad station or steambOat
I determined, therefore, to follow
up the track of Hawes, and thereby,
if possible,-:strike that of his confed
erate—which was in fact, . all that
could be done.
Hawes was a small broker. He liv
ed in Eighteenth street, and had an
office in Wall street.
He lived too far up town, I thought,
to go home every day to his dinner;
he went, then, most probably, always
to the same eating-house, and one not
far from his office.
After inquiring at several restau
rants near by, I came to one in Lib
erty street, where, on asking if
Hawes was in the habit of dinin g
there, the waiter said yes,
'Have you seen a man hero with
him lately r I inquired.
'No; no one in particular,' replied
'Are you sure of it? Come, think.'
After scratching his head for a mo
ment, he said :
'Yes, there has been a young man
here speaking to him once or twice.'
'How did he look y'
'Tie was short, and had black hair
'Who is he ?. What does he do ?' •
'He is clerk to Mr. L , the
'Where does Mr. live ?'
The waiter did not know. Look
ing into a directory, I ascertained his
residence to be in Fourteenth street.
The stores by this time were closed ;
BO I went immediately to M.r. L---'s
house, and asket to see him. Se
was at dinner.
am sorry to disturb him,' said I
to , the servant ; 'but I wish to speak
to him a moment on a matter of im
portance, and cannot wait.'
Mr. L— came out, evidently an
noyed at the intrusion.
'Have you such a person in your
employment ?' said I, describing him.
'No,-sir ; I have not.'
'You had such_a person ?'
have not now.
'Did you discharge him ?'
'Why ?' -
'What business is that of yours ?'
he asked, rather huffily.
'My name, sir, is M—, of the de.
festive police. lam after thift fellow
-that's all. Tell me, if you please,
why you discharged him.'
'Oh, I beg your pardon,' said Mr.
L—. took you for one of his
rascally associates. I discharged
him a week or ten days ago. He was
a vet y dissipated, good for nothing
+Was he your book-keeper?'
'No; be was a junior clerk.

that you can show me?'
He furnbled in a side pocket and
drew out a pocket-book, from_

attached as witness.
'That's his writing,' said he.
It was a'stiff schoolboy's scrawl.
This Was not my man, then. I
ap,nlogiied to Mr. L— for the
trouble" had given him, and with
Lest time, said Ito myself, I am
on the wiong track. I must go back
to the enting-honse and begin the
chase again from the point where I
left off. ,
I saw the same waiter.
want you to think again,' said
I. 'Try, hard to, remember Whether
there 'waver was any other'man here
with nawes on 'any occasion.'
After" eflecting for a little' while,
he said'lTlthoaght he recollected his
going up'staira not long ago With an-
other man to a private room.
, Did you wait on him yourself at
the time you speak of?' I asked. -
'No ; most likely it was Joe liar

'You, waited on Mr. Hawes a few

'Who - was that other man?'
'He is a young man who is a clerk
in a livery stable in Sullivan street.'
'What aro his looks ?'
'He is tall and light haiited.'
'Do you know his name ?'
'His name is Etigat.'
I hurried up to Sullivan street,
went into the first livery stable I came
to, inquired for 'tire proprietor, and
asked him if he had a young "man in
his stable of the name of Edgar.
He said he had. -
‘Dols he keep yotr books r
'lreS--he takes orders for me.'
'Let the see some of his hand-wri
ting, ifyou please.'
He stepped back into the.offlee and
took from a desk a little order-book.
I opened it; there were some m'ders,
hastily written, no doubt, but in a
hand almost like beautiful copper-
'This was my man—l felt nearly
certain of it. I asked where he liv
ed, and was told with his mother, a
widow woman, at such a number in
Hudson - street. I started for the
place. " - Itmas now nine o'cleck. Ar
riving at the house, I rang the bell.
It was - answered by a servant girl.
'Does Mr. Edgar live here,' I .in

'No ' sir.'
'When will he come home ?'
'Does he sleep here ?'
'Sometimes he does, and sometimes
'Where is he likely to be found ? I
should like to see him.'
She said she realty did not know,
unless perhaps it might be at a bit-
Hard saloon not far off.
I went there. A noisy crowd was
around the room, and I closely scru
tinized every face. No tall, light
haired Young. man was there. I ask
ed the barkeeper if Mr. Edgar had
been there that evening. He said no;
he had not seen anything- of him for
two or three days. I asked him if
there was any other place he knew
of that Edgar frequented, and was
told he went a good deal to a bowl
ing alley in West Broadway, near
Duane street. Not much yet, I
thought, as I hurried on West Broad•
way. Descending a few steps into a
sort of vestibule or office to the bowl

I bent my steps to the theatre, tak
ing with me a comrade in the police
service, whom I encountered as I was
leaving the saloon. We hurried on
With the utmost rapidity; but, on
reaching the theatre, found, to my
disgust, what I had already feared,
that the play was over, and the thea-.
tre just closed.
'Better give it up for to-night,' said
my companion; 'we know enough a.

search again to-morroW.'

if a tall young man, with light hair,

no one could' tell me where Edgar

tain he had gone home with the
girl. Where she lived I did not
know; but 1 thought it probable the
actor could tell me. So we started
on to Walker street. There are—or
were at the time I speak of—several
boarding houses in Walker street.—
We passed one or two three story
houses with marble - steps.

'No,' I answered ; 'poor actors don't

We kept on ; and after ttlittlo while
we found one that seemed to. me to

rang the bell and inquired for Mr.
Levison. He was gone to bed.. It
was now twelve o'clock. I desired
the mans that opened the door to tell
him that.somebody was ,below to see
him immediately. Ho soon returned,

'Since its location upon Chestnut
street, the central office of the Muni•
cipal Telegraph - has grown to be a
place of some note and importance.—
Many persons,,are,, attracted thither
in the regular course of business, and
.their constant arrival and departure
tends to make it the scene of consid
erable bustle and animation. For ob
vious reasons the locality is the gen
eral resortiof the reporters connected
with the public press of the city. In
fact, it is their headqiiarters. It is
also much frequented by persons de
siring to witness the: operations of
the instruments, many of whom are
stran g ers in town, and are taken
there by friends anxious to .do the
agreeable by assisting to gratify a
very laudable curiosity. Once at the
office, every facility is afforded for
the attainment of the.objects of such
visits,, especially if the parties visiting
are strangers. The operators, we
are glad to say, arc proverbially
obliging, and do their utmost to ex
plain accurately the workings of the
system. Should the Superintendent
of the line or his Assistant happen to
be present on such occasions, one or
the other of them immediately take
the visitors in hand and assume the
task of explanation. We • mention
this matter thus particularly, in or

'far as to show them the operations
of the telegraph." The reply was
'certainly, gentlemen ; please step
It so happened that, the Assistant
Superintendent was present at the
time, busily engaged over his news

aside the paper and rose to greet them
and do the honors of the occasion.—

hitherto done all the talking - Willed
to his friend and introduced him as
Mr. Evans, of Bourbon county, Ken•

and exchanged . salutations. There
was nothing peculiar in the appear

which only denoted an active ner

From the frequent, exclamations of
delight, to which the little man gave
utterance, it was safe to judge the ex

away upon an inattentive auditor.
At length the batteries and instru

only remair.ed to show the speaking
tube communicating with the bell
ringer in the State House steeple,
and. point oilt its peculiarities.—
Turning to the tube, our friend the
Assistant plumed himself for a final
flight,. 'This, gentleman' said he, 'is
the speaking tube, by which orders
for the ringing of the State louse

he stood scratching his bead in Utter per

strangers and began to apologize for the
rather unfortunate ending of the affair.
In the midst of this apology he was inter

VIOE lit WASHINGTON,
Vice and wickedness of all kinds
are fearfully on the increase r in Wash
isngton. It has been asserted that
there are full fifteen thousand prosti
tutes in and about the city. This the
Star has attempted to disprove, and
by going into an exact count; shows
that there are only seven thonsand.
In\ addition to this number the STAtt.
says, "There are a number of females
sailing under false colors, and who
until they are found out, frequently
manage to quarter themselves at re
spectable boarding houses. It would
be difficult to estimate the number of
these." Swartnes of these brazen
faced courtesans meet the eye at eve
ry turn. Dressed in purple and scar

promenadlng with men who no doubt
at home pretend and are taken to be
gentlemen. There are many among
them, though, who at first glance
would seem beautiful, modest and ac- -
complished ladies; but a nearer view
shows that the color on the cheek ie
not the ruddy glow of health ; bat the
rough that hides the last night's de
bauch; and the obscene jest and vul
gar laugh, as they pass, shows that
all feminine delicacy has long since
fled. The brothels where these wo
men belong are, nightly filled with
soldiers - and citifens, and scarcely a

of riot and bloodshed. Ancient Baby

day, but its harlcitry looks dim and

royal prostitution, in its purple and

magnificent distances.' The City
Councils have before them a resolu
