Telegraphic Dispatehes.::Pals ty of thd
Associned Press R• ports.
The newspapers are frequently denounced'
for publishing telegraphic dispatches which
afterwards.turn ontßolbe greatly exaggerated
or entirely false. The facts are simply these:
Dispatches thus 'published are furnished
by the so-called "Associated Press" and scat
tered over the country to the different 'papers
for rer; but the journals Publishing these
reports are not in the least responsible for
0a theld'day of June we received - tie fol
lowing from the Associated Press, viz: 4

The rebel iron-clad wesithen driven up the.
This same 'dispatch was published all over
the country, and of course had the desired
effee ' t of influencing the gold market Gold it /e
-on that day 1 to 2 per cent. The next day,
however, the gold market was to be „affeeted
the other way, and in order to accomplish
this purpose we_ received the following grati
fying dispatch: -
"The steamer George -Washington;' front
White House at seven o'clock ..this morning„
has arrived. It is reported that Gen.. Bits
Hugh Lee and 500 of hiS cavalry :were: c_ap-,
tnred last night, while attempting
.to make. A
raid in the direction of White House.: Gen.
Smith made the capture..
This dispatch had again the desired• effect
and brought gold down to 90, a decline ' of 2
per cent. Both these disliiitehes, - aittAou_
known to be UTTERLY FALSE, WZRE IMEZRiOONir
TitaxacrrED, and have not been 4 • this-day by.
the'solcalled - Associated Pies agents. '
We received, however,: a
.. special 131spittch
froin a reliai.le gentleman_contradicting..t.ltip,
Rebel Ram story" on the ,authority •0f , .. the
Navy Department, which was duly laid before
our readers. After the publication of that;
contradiction the gentlemanly operator here
handed us the folloWing, viz:
‘‘ Ilk J. M Fmriza:—You will . please, `give'
Mr. Bergner, of - the ‘Teratomin,' notice tbiit
we shall not send him reports except .4 full,
rates unless he stops advertising the .'inland
_through ,his, news columns. Yon,
Mr. Brooks is the manager of the line in
Philadelphia, while John H. Berryhill, Esq.,
a reeident of this city, is the President of the
Atlantic and Ohio Telegraph Company, over
whose lines we ha've received the dispatches
for years past, , and to whom we 'have paid
THOUSANDS, of DOLLARS for very inaccurate and
imperfect reports, although we haves, stipu
lated contract for full reports. Full - paymelitt
WAS ALWAYE DEMANDED 47111. MADE, even if we did
not receive aline of news. In short, Mr. Berry
hill has been very punctual in_demanding full
pay, while we have been defrauded out of the
news, for which we paid, almost every day.
We intend to submit it to a jury of our 'coun
trymen whether such fraud can go , unpunish
ed—and hence we decline further to discuss
this point:in the issue involved. -
Mr. Berryhill has never given us one hour's
notice that we did not comply with our part
of the contract between the Telegraphic Com
pany,and ourselves, nor that he intended to
atop -the reports. His operator here, how
ever, acted under orders, no doubt; from his .
superiors, and we have the satisfacticn to an
nounce -to the public that since this viOlation
of a contract the TELEGRAPH has given more
reliable and fuller reports than were ever
received under the Berryhill contract.
We have nothing to do with Mr. Brooks,
and never heard of him as having any control
over the, office here ; where Mr. Berryliill)ms
aoted as the President. Brooks' assumption to
control the TELEGRAPH, by notifying us that
unleis we stop advertising for the Inland Con'z',
pony he will charge us full rates, is absurd and
rediculous. Neither Mr. Brooks or any of his
associates in extortion, .can control the• TELE
GRAPH with threats. Ilia able to take'citre'of
itself, and will never hesitate to•do so.'
The simple fact is these: We have•paid:the)
Atlantic and Ohio Telegraph company; or to
John H. Berryhill, Esq., abOnt'oica
pax mat for portions of the Associaießress,
reports, while we had -contracted with him
for ALL THE REPORTS, and whenever we com
plained to hint about the 'non-fulfdlreent of his
contract, he always made the excuse that the
Government had possession of the lines, which
we haVe since discovered not to have been the
case. It was only an,ekqnSe . to
promptly whenever the.bi11*a5.11444.At44.2.,

no services and violated solemn contracts.
Our columns have for the last week shown
evidence that ourreafiers,havebeen materially
benefitted by the change, and we advise all
who wish to comnAmOate 'by Telegraph to
any part of the United States, to patronize
the Inland Telegraph Company. Their oper
