It Is (aid that Mr. George Noodle Banders, at present of Canada, has been offered the chairmanship of ibis new temperance movement, and tbat Senator Chand r, of Michigan, will represent, as secretary, the ex em* abolition total abstinence sentiment or tbe entire ntry. A special train is to he hired for the se of the delegation, so thst decent travellers om St. Louis to the East may not be worried y the ultra zealous 'temperance demonstra .lojip" of the members of the committee; and In instructions of tbe "Total Abstinence Convention"' nder which the delegates are to act tt Is resolved tbat no member of tbe secesn temperance delegation to the resident, for the removal or General Grant, shall carry rlth bins during his Journey from St Louis to Washlng on over fix two-gallon demijohns or Bourbon for bis jrivate use." stout or tai first "T?irrjANq| delegation'' AGAINST liRANT. - a i The russ tbat la now being made here by the rebel sym pathizers over Ibe alleged backsliding of Lieuten ant Uenoial Grant recalls to my mlud very forcibly ? scene of wlilcb I was witness, Just previous to Bbe capture of Kort I onolson.

Ho telegraphed In cypher General Halleck, who was then In command or the Mississippi department, setting forth what tbe 7ri bunt said, what tbe ' total abstinence" committee said, mad what be (Presldeut Lincoln) thought should at once be done. This waa nothing more nor t?iai than that General llalleck should Issue an order ?nmmarily and dsgracs: ully dismissing Grant from the Service for beiog afllioted with the habits of "a common drunkard." ?BHBIUL IIALLBCK CjW't AM IT, A*D GROWKTfl IXWOSAWT.

"? THE "TOTAL AI1STINSNCB" MK* CRT A HBJfiHT IMA. How the "total abstinence raon" felt at tbi? proclse juncture I naii not say; hut history gives full record or what they did. A bright Idea soiled Jud,joPavl? that by cboeriog and yelling the loudest for General Grant the character of tboir mission miKht be forgotten*. Pavte yelled and cheered. Leonard Swett saw tbo point at once, and joined In chorus. Minister Judd only .blamed him self that the same h ippy thought had not occurred to blm before occurring to Judge Davis; and, as ihe upshot ofobe whole, the entire "temperance party" became the most vociferouB?ln the corridor in their mAd buzzahs for the "Great Itiver Horse of the Mississippi." rhe cham pagne provided by General Halieok, howevor, was too cold for their inflamed and furious stomachs. Tboy secured, through Shatter's aid, a large empty ball, sometime* used ns a ballroom, in tbo back part of tho Planters' House, and there, throughout that day, with many a piilful of "rod eye" and many a biiirKot of spiced brandy, they h'eld high revol, dancing like enthusiastic monomaniacs around tin room acd bur/ablng for General Grant at the top of their voices ? "Wilse ShaCfer" mean While baying turned th% key on the whole parly, so tbat none but "frlonds" should see tbeir folly. Thus ended the first "John Pecesb temperance delega tion" against General Grant. Are we now to have another, under tho auspices of George N Sanders and company ? I have great hopes that, as a corollary of the new John Secesh "temperance movement" against tbe greatest of our soldteri, we shall soon hear of General Grant quietly smoking bis segar In the'taantion heretofore occupied by Mr. JetTcrsou Davis. It is only when* tbe rebels are ut terly boneless and helpless that they have resort to this miserable trick of personal assault and slander. The Graa-JBrtgnotl Controversy, TO TUK KDITOR Of Till 1IBHALS. Evssm Hoc?*, August 23, 1M4. A latter appeared In your columns of Saturday last from J. Grau, operatic manager, reflating on a claim I have brought against blm for viol itloa of contract. Out of rapeot Tor the court wblct* niuat pronounce on the osso, iSm very reluctant tj attudo to It; but, a3 tho letter of Mr. Grau la calcqMod to prejudice me in public osteem, I consider it due to myseir, on tbe eve of quitting the oountry, to make a brief statement of the ra:ts. l? tho sprjng otrJArt!} ^,f; Grau proposed f> me an en gagement or eight tj.wths, at one thousand six^ubdrel dollars per month, with two half bouetits, to begin on tbe 1st of October following, simulating, as in all ray pre vious contract?, to pay me half monthly is advance. During the stypnor of 1*3 I had advantages o.Teri to sing la rarls.aod also propositions from other places, and I solicited Mr. Grau to relinquish my "pmntint with him; but he refused. (Jn the 1st of Gctoberlwss in Now York, ready to fultll my engagement; but Mr. ?rau woo In Europe, and tho balf-montbly Instalment due on that day was not forthcoming. ? I received soon after ? letter from Mr. Grau saying he Vjaald not bo able to begin his season at the time be had Imposed, and suggesting I should sing in Sew York or (Aeewhore on my own account. I thought this a strange proposal, In tbe face of tbe contract existing Uetweon us; but I decided not to be entrapped into any violation or oar agreement. On the arrival of Ifr. Grau he proposed to rescind tbe contract, and (.fTercd me in lieu of the pay ments already due tho sum of el^ht hundred dollara. I declined a compromise so utterly Inadequate; and, as be rornsod any otbor, I was compelled to appeal to tbe law for redress. This Is tbe simple history of my caso, and It will bo seen on trial that Mr. Grau'a bad faith occa sioned me a loss of time 4tnd epportumties that fully en titles mo to tbe damages I claim. It would seem, however, that misfortunes nover come singly; for, In the midst of my trouble with the unrea sonable Grau, I am assailed by a Mr. Godfrey wltb a claim of fifteen hundred dollars for "professional ssr vices." I begjo say that this claim is not merely unfoui d ed, but preposterous. The services performed by Mr. Godfrey may have boon "professional;" but they were of a bumble description, and I will provo that be bas been liberally rewarded. During a residence of nine years and upwards In this country, I hive been treated both in publio and private wltb a partiality and kindness I can nover forgot. And It is not a little palnrul to mo that I should be compelled to make my exit, not on tbe stago so familiar to me, amid the concord of sweet sounds, but In * grim oourt of justice, amid wrangling and discord. It wUll be no sma])f consolation te me, however, If my friends sod tbe p?fTfle see nothing In the explanations 1 have made that tends In any degree to diminish my claim to tbe favor and applause so long and lavishly bestowed oo me. My sad ?ess in bidding them farewell is somewhat relieved by tbe earneet hope that, al no distant day, I shall revisit these shores, tbe sosoe of my earliest and happiest efforts. Tory gratefully, P.

Avrrili.'s Cavalry, Irr the Fikld, 1 August 23? Evening. / To day everything baa been remarkably quiet on our front. General Averlll's scouts and vldottes are in Mar tinsburg this afternoon, and do not report the enemy ad vancing further In that direction, Tb la morning we heard firing toward Genoral Sheri dan's left and In the nelghborhocd of Hall Town. Tbo skirmishing yesterday on General Sheridan's front was not particularly heavy. There is an impression prevalent that the ecemy Is ugaln playing an extenslvo game of "blnff" by demon strating? threatening? at different points, and showing ? n extensive skirmish line without progressing the force necessary under ordinary circumstances to support It Tor a genoral engagement against such an army as General Sheridan has at his command. The eremy is evidently acting to make us believe be hns an overwhelming force. The position that General Sheridan holds to-day is a de cilcdly strong defensive one, both to sustain^an attack against his centre, and to prevent Hank movements. The enemy's pickets are still at Bunker Hill, that is, at this writing. We havo beard from Western Virginia, but without re ceiving any information lhat the enemy is secretly mov ing Intbat direction, aa was thought might bo the pur. peso of bis present movements. So effectually has Gooeril Avorlll disposed of his forces that the enemy ban thus far boen prevonted from getting small raiding parties across tbo Potomae river. The reports that make their way North from Dagera town must not be too well credited. When the people of that neighborhood cannot tell where General Averlll'a headquarters are, they certainly know still less abcut the enemy's designs and whereabouts. Orders have been Issued, preventing citizens from cymsing the Potomac river to the Virginia side. Mr. DeD. Randolph Ktlm'i Despatch. Raitimors, August 24, ISM.
