It was nigh noon by the City Hall clock, and
of course it was time to be hungry and thirs

us. and to bed, Here endeth the first:day.,.
Early next morning '(that is, • early for
',New York) we started anew and found. our
man, "who really did know what he knew,"
for he was one of that Lind—moderately tall,
:moderately stout, moderately well shaped,
moderately good looking; but veq fast phys.
rally andmetaphysi &illy speaking —in some
respects indeed he might be described like
an old game, as "fast and loose." We
three now emerged ftom—neverinind where
—and - the Inuit was up. Did you ever
-see a pack-of dogs after a hare or a fox? Can
' you.imagine three crazy men playing "i'us•
sy;wants a corner," "I spy," or "Hide and
go seek," for a day? We were in brokers'
iliece, Lager-136er saloons, counting houses,
'eating himses, government contractors' aff
ects,- Delmonico's, stores,"inops, markets, eel
darS, attics, along - the whafves, through
Wall St., through the CustoM House—like
a blood-hound our guide the slight
.sst scent, for three whole days until we found
a customer—that is, he didn't want to buy
"but he had a friend, who wanted to buy,
and he'd lotus know to-morrow, after seeing
this dear friend who wished to purchase,"
I was now on OM track, and did not need
any longer my knowing friend. so when the
morrow came I went alone to see the man
who didn't want to buy Confederate money,
but who had a friend that - i - Vanted to buy
some. I found him at home, and was in
formed that his friend couldn't tell till 3
o'clock-Lat 3 o'clock ,I returned, and to my
disippointment wasput off till '2 o'clock, next
day—got \ mad and thought I'd try another
trick—did - so, and may I be blessed if it
didn't bring, rne_right back to the man is had
left'—tried a third way, and came back to
- the same place—began to think I certainly
had hold of, the right man, and returned at
o'clock next afternoon. I found my gen
tleman in and
,was told in a tone of gentle
„commiseration 'thathis friend had,rnade out
so badly in the last lot he had bought, that
• lie preferred . - not risking it -again." "He
was - sorry," he said, "to have given me so
'M i nch - trouble, - and to have taken so much

New York is quiet, not quiet like Chain
bersburg, but quiet relatively, compared with
its farmer_ self, before the riots. Business
w,ems very much prostrated, and the busi
ness cotninunity AppParte avoid talking on
the subject, being ItearOy - ashamed of and
seriously ahlrmedSor the - business character
of their city, far safety, both as a place of
resort as well as investment. There is some
little satisfaction iii knowing that New York
city, the city whence emanates the charge
that we sell water in our hospitable valley for
cents a glass, has been humiliated,by one
of the most outrageous and causeless popular
outbreaks of the present century. Lbave
heard brit one opinion of Gov. Seymour and
of Bishop Hughes—utter contempt and con
demnation. The only eicuse made for the
Bishop ie that he is old, an invalid and ex - -
tremeiy timid, and_ that he_ was heartily
frightened at - the ,time he made his celebrated
speech, in which he Was afraid of calling
white white, and intimated that black was
only a shade of white. The NeW York
papers at - the time gave you many incidents
of the riots, but were very careful not to tell
all. Here are one or two that I can vouch
for : A friend of mine, from
, Philadelphia,
was in a crowded street - car which was •stop.
ped, and every man and 'woman in it was
robbed, he losing his pocket book and a val
uable watch. - The_ ladies in the -car were
comPelled td give up even their ear and fin
ger rings, some ileing treated with unneces
sary violence and with indecency. It was
quite aconimon thing for families to have all
their-valuables, such asgeld tunrsilver pi
packed to more at a moment's , notice,
carriages and horses. ready. day and might.
The owner of a livery stable, an nevaintance
of mine; was informed during the riot th,
he must discharge his negrope had . in his
employ one negro and six Irishmen).. That
man has now working for him - seven negroes
and no Irishmen. Bad as the actual riot
was, the eveitement,Ahefear and dread; the
exaggeration And unnecessary alarm was
much greater. - So. many residents of Brook
lyn, Hoboken, Jersey City, Staten' Island
and 6ther suburbs of New York not being
able to return home as usual in...-tltemVeiiing,
gave the imptession that they had perhaps
lost their lives. *ln nivord, no newspaper
account can give even a faint -idea. of the
Reign of Terror. But lam not afraid to say
that there will not Soon be another outbreak.

"Bpckaway, Long Branch, Atlantic City,
Cape May, and Newport may 'do in their
