    DANIEL E. SICKLES – RECONCILIATION. The New York Tribune of Tuesday contains the following editorial announcement, which may strike some persons with astonishment, albeit we are not of that number. Says the Tribune -

    We are credibly informed from various sources that the Hon. Daniel E. Sickles has become entirely reconciled with his wife, and is now living with her in marital relations as before the death of the late Philip Barton Key. We are also assured that in taking this remarkable step, Mr Sickles has alienated himself from most of not all of those personal and political friends who devotedly adhered to him during his recent imprisonment and trial.

    The reconciliation between Mr and Mrs Sickles was consummated, as we are informed, while Mr S. was reading at the house of a friend on the Bloomingdale road, about half a mile from the former house of Mr S., which for some time past Mrs Sickles has occupied, either alone or with some of the members of her own family. The suspicions of his host were excited by the repeated absence of Mr S. at unusual hours; and when he came in very early one morning he was interrogated by the host and another friend who was present, and on his positively denying their right to question him, and refusing to give an explanation, they shook hands with him for the last time and he withdrew. It is said that he has since addressed letters to his former intimate associates, notifying them formally of the resumption of conjugal relations between himself and Mrs Sickles.
