A study of Sheridan's campaigns, will, we think, disclose the pe- culiarity of his very readily. His success has been most brilliaut; the secret of it is very simple. In the first place, as we are told by an enthusiastic private, just home from the war?, "Phil. Sheridan fights to win." Other Generals mamruvre, and try to outwit the plans of the enemy, to excel in defensive iiattle ; the offensive of such is always weak. Sheridan ig always on the offensive. We do not now speak of Sheridan's raid*, which, although conducted in the most masterly manner, are subordinate in character to other plans, and usually seek to elude the enemy. But no; in his grand tactics, as displayed at Winchester, Cedar Creek, and Five Forks, we observe a principle which linds its expression in the following order...

The Black Repub- lican CooTeniioo led off some weeks age, and planted Itself upon the following plat- form : 1. Indefinite probation for the Southern JitUm before re-admission to the Union. 2. Negro equality, removal of distinction of color, negro suffrage, with the omoom- Itants, amalgamation, misoege nation, and go fcvtk. 3. Hang Jeff. Davis. 4. Sup- port the Administration. This last is fan- ny, as an that goes before is in opposition to the Administration. The Democratic 8tate Convention met at Portland, August 15th. Paul S.

The jCitv. A negro was brought down from Millican on Monday, and ia now confined in the military guard bouse, charged with mortally stabbing another negro. We expected to have several bugla- ries and thefts to report As morning, bnt the keen rascals conclud^fthat the people were watching them, and it wonld be run* ning too much risk to try their hand in the game too often. So they are only watching to catch the people off their gnara. and then look out for jewels and other good things. We observe the baker's wagons on the streets again. This institution played out about the time that Cousin Sally played in, and we had forgotten all about them. The water cart man has had a long resting spell lately on account of the wet weather, bnt we expect to see him out again this morning. — Governor Hamilton has appointed Mr.jC.

'C k) I f iti^whlgicUgtaph Romance in Fashionable Life. From tbe 21. T. Tribune. Aug. 4. A very romantjc case was developed by the detective police ot this city last evening. It appears that a young man, formerly of wealtb and sound standing in this city, was married some fifteen years since to a beau- tiful and accomplished lady, a niece of an ex-President of the United States, and the belle of Washington during her uncle's brief term of office. Out of-respect tor the feelings of this lady, the name of her hus- band, herself and family are omitted. The yoong- man is known as G——, the son of a gentleman who made himself immensely wealthy in the pork packing business throughout the country. The elder G— died a millionare having first disinherited his son for faithlessness to his marriage vows. The younger G lived happily with his wife for several years, two children be- in^ the-i fruits of their union. He then formed the acquaintance of a well known operatic singer, who may possibly ...

The Oitv. HOUSTON. GALVESTON. HOUSTON HOUSTON. Capt. Lynch, the enterprising commander of this post has issued an im- portant order which will be found in another oolumn. His order ii clear and explicit, and it teaches the very thing necessary to the preservation of the. health and lives of our oitizens and we trust to see the order rigidly enforced throughout the city. Another improvement instituted by the military authorities of this city, requires all negroes to obtaiu a certificate from their employer showing thai they ob- tain an honest living. If they oannot do this they are immediately sent to the Hotel d'Afrique and forced to work on the street to pay for Unole Sam's grub they eat. Houston is a poor place for negro va- grants.
