    A Sucking Nelson.

    J. G. BENNETT, Jr., son of the virtuous and high-toned editor of the New York Herald, has offered the LINCOLN GOVERNMENT the services of his yacht to be manned and commanded by himself. What a scampering there will be among the Southern privateers, when they hear that young BENNETT is coming! Couldn’t he prevail upon his excellent father to accompany him in this cruise? Or does HORACE GREELEY, who has that saintly old person prisoner, refuse him leave of absence?
