COTTON IN COURT-A PRISONER WANTING.
Henry Doscher, who resides near Monk's Corner,
on the North eastern Railroad, a short time ago
took a baie of sea island cotton to Mr. Davis, thc
railroad agent ai that station, for shipment, and
obtained a receipt for the same. A few days after?
wards he went to Mrs. Davis, during the absence
of Mr. Davis, and demanded the cotton. Know?
ing that lt was his, Mrs. Davis gave up the cotton,
but neglected to take back the railroad receipt.
Doscher sold the cotton Immediately to a gentle?
man who paid bim for lt In full, and then having
the receipt of the railroad agent still in his pos?
session, he obtained an advance from a merchant
of this elly by transferring the receipt to him.
Mr. Davis upen being sued on the receipt for the.
bale of cotton therein mentioned, had Doscher
arrested on Wednesday afternoon. The case came
up before Trial Justice John G. Mackey, who, after
an examination, decided that Dosoher should give
ball for his appearance at the next Court of Gen e
ral Sessions. Doscher and a constable were sent
out to give the former an opportunity of getting
the necessary security, but after an hour's fruitless
search returned to the trial justice unsuccessful.
It was now dark and growing late, and the trial
Justice began to prepare the commitment. While
this was going on Doscher quietly made his exit
from the crowded office, and when the constable
looked for his prisoner to take him to Jail he was
nowhere to be found. A strict search was Insti?
tuted, but Doscher has not been seen since A
constable was sent on yesterday afternoon to
Monk's Corner, and by this tune Doscher may be
once more lu limbo.

METEOROLOGICAL OBSERVATIONS_Pursuant !
to a joint resolution passed by both Houses of j
Congress In February last, authorizing the Secre?
tary of War to provide for taking meteorological j
observations at military stations and other points j
tn the States and Territories, and for giving notice 1
on the Northern lakes and seacoast, by magnetic
telegraph and marine signals, of the approach ;
and force or Btorms, Mr. J. E. Evans, observer ser- i
g?ant In the signal service or the United States, j
has been sent to this city, and has now fitted up I !
his offices and instruments in the upper story or
the old State Bank building, at the corner or East
Bay and Broad street. Mr. Evans has been In
this branch of the service for a number or years,
and ls thoroughly acquainted with his duties. He
is supplied with all the instruments necessary for J
his observations. On the tin roof or thc building,
whence a fine view or the harbor and *Jie city
ls to be had, a enbstantlal stage haa been
erected for Instruments. On this stage are, a
Robinson's anemometer, a Lord's anemometer, a
rain gauge jjwd a wind vane. The two former
are very simple and ingenious Instruments, and
are used for measuring the velocity and pounds
pressure of the wind. They work on dur?rent
plans, and the calculation by one corrects that of
the other. The rain gauge shows thc exact depth j
of the rain that may have fallen, and the wind-1
V8oe the direction of the wind. At one or the I
windows In the office there ls a small recess, en- j
clo,- ed by lattice work. In this recess, which ls
exposed on the sides to the action of the atmos?
phere, are a thermometer and a barometer of
Grnn'a standard, and a Mason's hygrometer
which gives the relative humidity of the atmos?
ph?re. These instruments are of the most deli
cate workmanship, and the barometer in partlcu
lar ls a curiosity of accurate finish. By means
of these Instruments, exact observations of the
helghth of the barometer and thermometer,
and their changes, the relative humidity of the at?
mosphere, the direction, velocity and pressure o'
the wind, and its force, (reduced to the Beaufort
scale) the amount of clond, the depth of the rain

state of the weather, wfll be taken three times a

WORKING A ' COAL MLNE.-For some time
past the coal on Boyce's wharf has been disap?
pearing In an unaccountable manner, and a sharp
watch yesterday morning discovered the un?
known ageney. Special Officer Johnson, of the
Detective force, who was on the watch, discovered
four boys proceeding lu a stealthy manner to
wards the coal, each armed with a large bag.
They were rapidly filling these with the coal when
the officer surprised and carried them to the
Defective's office. Upon being brought before a
trial justice, they were Identified as John Robinson,
Zachariah Nels?n, Edward Brown and Stephen
Kennedy, ?bt one of whom ls over eleven years
of age. They were about to be committed when
the quartette set up a huge blubbering, and made
the most ample promises for the future. This
would not have proved of much avail had not the
respective fathers of the parties appeared on the
scene, and upon gopd security being given by
them for the future good behavior of their off?
spring, the latter were sent on their way rejoicing.
