Mcclellan a honoured name a detectives Story. The following is a Truo Story by a late Well known member of the do tec. Tiye service and with the exception of some names of persons and places is Given precisely As be himself related it a. Late on Friday afternoon in the latter part of nov. 18�?, i was sent for by the chief of the new York police and was told there was a ease for me. It was a counterfeiting affair. Notes had been forged on a Pennsylvania Bank two men had been apprehended and were in custody. The first Springer had turned states evidence on his accomplice who according to Bis account was the prime mover in the Bis Many Daniel Hawes by name a had transferred the notes to a third party of whom nothing had been ascertained except that he was a Young Man wrote a Beautiful hand and had been in town the monday before. was the Man i was to catch. It was Sundown when i left the superintendents office. I had not much to guide me there were hundreds of Young men who wrote a Beautiful band and had been in town last monday. 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 my May bad been in intimate relations with Hawes for the last few Days a probably since the preceding monday although it was not known that he had been in town since that Day. might not to a resident in the City but i determined to seek Librn Here since if he had Dot 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 wharf. I determined therefore to follow up the track of Hawes and thereby if possible strike that of his confederates which was in fact. All that could be done. Hawes was a Small broker. lived in eighteenth Street and had an office in Wall Street. 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 Aud one not far from his office. After inquiring at several restaurants near by i came to one in Liberty Street where on asking if Hawes was in the habit of dining there the waiter said yes a have you seen a Man Here with him lately v i inquired. A no no one in particular a replied the waiter. A Are you sure of it lome after scratching his head fora moment be said a yes there has been a Young Man Here speaking to him once or a How did he look a he was Short and had Black hair and a who is lie a what does he do a a he is clerk to or. L the Linen a where does or. L live a the waiter did not know. Looking into a directory i ascertained his residence to be in fourteenth Street. The stores by this time were closed so i went immediately to or. L is House and Aspeti to him. was at dinner. �?~1 am sorry to disturb him a said i to1 the servant a but i wish to speak to him a moment on a matter of importance and cannot or. La came out evidently annoyed at the intrusion. A have you such a person in your employment a said i describing him. A no sir i have a you had person a a i have not a did you discharge i in a a Why a a what business is that of yours a he asked rather Duffily. A my name sir is of the detective police. I am after to tit fellow a that Sall. Tell to if you please Why you discharged it a of 1 beg your Pardon a said or. L. A i took you for one of his rascally associates. I discharged him a week or ten Days ago. was a very dissipated Good for nothing a a was he your Book keeper v a no he was a Junior a have you any of his hand writing that you can show Roe a. fumbled in a Side pocket and Drew out a pocket Book from which he took a memorandum of agree ment or Shine paper of the sort to the Bottom of which a signature was attached As witness. A that a his writing a said he. It was a stiff Schoolboy s scrawl. This was not my Man then. I apologized to or. L for the Trouslot had Given him and withdrew. Lost time said i to myself. I am on the wrong track. I roust go Back to the eating Honse and begin the Chase again from the Point where i left off. _ i saw the same waiter. A i want you to think again a said i. A try Bartl to remember whether there Wever was any other Man Here with Hawes on any after reflecting for a Little while he said Bethought he recollected his going up stairs not Long ago with another Man to a private room. A did you wait on him yourself at the time you speak of a i asked. A no most Likely it was Joe har a a a a a will you Send for him if you please Joe Harris came. A you waited on or. Hawes a few Days ago when he dined with another gentleman in a private room up stairs did no to you a a yes a who was that other Man a a he is a Young Man who is a clerk in a livery stable in Sullivan a what Are his looks a a he is Tail and Light a do you know his Nate a a his name is 1 hurried up to Sullivan Street went into the first fivery stable i came to inquired for Quot tier proprietor and asked him if he had a Young Man in his stable of the name of Edgar lie said he had. A de a he keep your books v a yes he takes orders for a let me some of his band writing i you he stepped Back into the office and took from a desk a Little order Book. I opened it there were some orders hastily written no doubt but in a hand almost like Beautiful copperplate. A this was my Many i Felt nearly certain of it i asked where he lived and was told with his Mother a widow woman at such a number in Hudson Street i started for the place. It was now Nineon Cleck. Arriving at the House i rang the Bell. It was answered by a servant girl. A does or Edgar live Here a i inquired. A yes vis ? a no a when will be come Home ? a i done to a does be sleep Here a a sometimes he does and sometimes he a where is he likely1 to be found ? i should like to she said she really did not know unless perhaps it might be at a billiard Saloon not far off. I went there. A noisy crowd was around to room and i closely scrutinized every free. No tall i igbo hair eco Young Man was there. I asked the barkeeper if or. Edgar had been there that evening. 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 Bowling Alley in West Broadway near Duane Street. Not much yet i thought As i hurried on West Broadway. Descending a few Steps into a sort of Vestibule or office to the Bowling Saloon. A has or. Edgar been hero this evening a i inquired of the Man in attendance. A he is Here now a was the reply in the other room through that i passed through the door Tridiea Ted into a Bowling Alley and accosted Tho Markar a is or. Edgar Here a who has just gone not More than fifteen minutes a do you know where he went to v a its Ems to me that some of them said something about going to the Lafayette i am on his track now i said to myself Only fifteen minutes behind him. 1 Bent my Steps to the theatre taking with me a Comrade in the police service whom i encountered As i was leaving the Saloon. To hurried on with the utmost rapidity but on reaching the theatre found to my disgust what 1 bad already feared that the play was Over and the Thea. Tre just closed. A better give it up for to night a said my companion a we a a now enough about him Dow and can take up the search again a it wont do Clarke a said i a we have inquired for him at too Many places. Stay�?1, got a notion he May be Beard of at some of these Oyster Cellers a i went into one of them and asked if a tall Young Man with Light Bair had been there that evening. J a a tall Young Man with 1 Light hair and moustache had come in from the theatre with a lady and bad just left. Quot i asked my informant if be knew the lady. She was a miss Kearney he answered. It what a i continued a did no to her sister marry the actor Levison ?. S a yes the same it he lives near the Bovery in Jenive a r w a a yes i to la Ink to a to plied the a. Mam t considered a moment. Of Coaree to one Ronld Tell me where Edgar had gone to but i was tolerably certain be had gone Home with the girl. Where she lived i did not know but i 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 we passed one or two three Story houses with Marble Steps. A shall i ask along Here a said Clark. A no a i answered a poor actors done to Board there we must look for him further on.�?T. We kept on and after a Little while a we found one that seemed to. to Bethe House we were looking for. I rang the Bell and inquired for or. Levison. was gone to bed. It was now twelve of clock. I desired a the Many that opened the door to Tell i m tha somebody was below to him immediately. To soon returned saying that or. Levison was in bed and could not be disturbed i must leave my business or Call again next Day. I necessary to frighten him a Little so i sent up word that was an officer of police and he must come Down instantly or i should go up and fetch him. In a few to merits the actor made his appearance terribly frightened. Before i Conict say anything he began to pour out Sucur a flood of questions and asset rations that i could not get a word in. What did i want with him ? Iliad come to the wrong Man. badent been doing anything Etc., Etc. �?~1 done to want Yon a i began but it was of no use i could not Stop him his character was excellent anybody would vouch for him i ought to be sure what i was about before i Rouse people from their Beds at Midnight Etc.-,Etc. His huddled words arid apprehensive looks made me suspect there was something wrong with Bira but it was no concern of mine then. I seized him by the shoulder and ordered him to be Don t utter another word a said i except to answer Tny questions or ill carry you off and lock you tip. I have not come to arrest you i Only want to ask you a few Haven to you a sister in Law named miss Kearney a a yes what do you want with her a a i am not going to do her any harm.

A record. Purposes. Since its location upon Chestnut Street the Central office of Tho municipal Telegraph has grown to be a place of some note and Many persons Are. Attracted thither in the regular course of business and their constant arrival and departure tends to make it the scene of considerable Bustle and animation. For obvious reasons the locality is the general resort if the reporters connected with the Public press of the City. In fact it is their Headquarters. It is also much frequented by persons desiring to witness the operations of the instruments Many of whom Are strangers in town and Are Token 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 stingers. The operators we Are glad to say Are proverbially obliging and do their utmost to explain accurately the Workings of the system. Should the superintendent of the line or Bis 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 order to illustrate in detail the following incident which occurred at Tho office a few evenings Siree and which for the time being created considerable excitement. A gentleman accompanied by a Friend a Small Man with a huge moustache and wearing a Slouch Bat Well Over his eyes called at the office on the evening in question and inquired of one of the operators a if he would oblige himself and Friend so far As to show them the operations of the the reply was a certainly gentlemen please step it so happened that the assistant superintendent was present at the time busily engaged Over his newspaper. Upon the Earl hinge of the visitors however he immediately Laid aside the paper and Rose to Greet them and do the honors of the after a few words had been interchanged the gentleman who had hitherto done All the talking turned to his Friend and introduced him As or. Evans of Bourbon county Kentucky. Or. Evans at onco advanced and exchanged salutations. There was nothing Peculiar in the appearance or bearing of this gentleman save in his Quick restless movements which Only denoted an Active nervous temperament. His speech was mild and gentlemanly though thickly Inte larded with the Tharsa and a we arb so characteristic of a True born southerner. The assistant superintendent entered upon his task with the greatest zest apparently and was soon deep in the mysteries of the a Sodus 01�?Ter-andi.�?T a from the frequent exclamations of Delight to which the Little Man gave utterance it was Safe to judge the explanation in Progress was not thrown away upon an inattentive auditor. At length the batteries and instruments had ail been gone Over and it Only remained to show Tho speaking tube communicating with the Bell ringer in the state House Steeple and Point put its turning to the tube our Friend the assistant plumed himself for a final flight. A this gentleman said he a is the speaking tube by which of Ders for the ringing of the state House Bell in Case of fire Are communicate to the watchman always on duty in the a How do you attract his attention a said the Little kentuckian interrupting. A by placing the month against the Routh place and blowing in it which causes a fond whistling noise at the other end of the tube a was the reply. To the same manner a continued the assistant a Light or fire before the officers Bave time to Spring an alarm station.

A Why several gentlemen Here heard 1 a i done to care what they heard they Are a a of fools and you Are another. Do j you think i m crazy 4�?T the latter part i in a regular screech j a yes i do a candidly replied the mail below. The two strangers during the whole of this scene were Cool and collected though apparently vere much interested in what was transpiring. The assistant on the contrary looked rather the worse for the encounter to use a popular expression he was a dead for a few moments he stood scratching his head in utter perplexity and bewilderment when suddenly recovering himself he turned towards the strangers and began to apologize for the rather unfortunate ending of the affair. In the midst of this apology he was interrupted by the violent Entrance of the Bell ringer who had come from the Steeple Down to the office in exactly1 three Quarter of a minute. A what is All this Doft Here a exclaimed the latter As soon As he entered the door. A if Yon done to know by this time it.

A yes Youdis you know you did Teddy for i stood by and heard you said a voice very deprecating by right behind him. Quot Teddy wheeled suddenly around to face the owner voice with his in position to strike straight from the shoulder the moment he was discovered. All the others present rushed Forward to obtain a View of the daring individual but no one was to be found. Astonishment was now pictured in every countenance Aud from looking for the owner of the a voice they fell to looking at each other an idea of a decided sell at the same time beginning to be universally.

Than our old Friend Signor Blitz the magician and ventriloquist. A a bully for Blitz was the exclamation of some one As soon As the discovery was made. This expression was received with shouts of uproarious laughter in which none joined More heartily than the two gents who had been so egregiously sold. The last we saw of them they were in close you siltation with the Signor and we Are charitable enough to suppose to made the matter All right vice ift Washington vice and wickedness of All kinds Are fearfully on the increase in Wash Sington. It has been asserted that there Are full fifteen thousand prostitutes in and about the City. This the Star has attempted to disprove and a i by going into an exact count shows that there Are Only seven thousand.

Dressed in purple and Scarlet Riding in the finest carriages promenade no 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 accomplished ladies but a nearer View shows that the color on the Cheek is not the Ruddy glow of health Bat the rough that hides the last nights Debauch and the obscene jest and vulgar laugh As they pass shows that All feminine delicacy has Long since fled. The brothels where these women belong Are nightly filled with soldiers and citizens and scarcely a night passes but they Are the scones of riot Aud bloodshed.
