The Street Railway Question—Judge
la recent lw proceeding in the nature of
, , an Injunction between Robert Hobs, axd
- Orris-, or -the one part, and tbe Ohio axi
' Mis-issr-w Railroad Com pant asd Ornm,
of the other, the Superior Court of thil city
decided to forbid the latter party to construct
1 ' a track along Front-street, to connect the
depot of the Ohio and Miaeistippi and the
' Little Miami Railroads. The plaintiffs, being
' ' property holders on that street, applied for
the injunction on the ground that the pro
' - posed track would Interrupt trnrel on the
street, and thereby prore injurious to their
property and obstructor to their business,
and upon this ground the injunction was
grantod; "and thereby," says the Gazette,
with nnusual discretion, "the important prin
ciple was established that the City Council
has no right to anthorize the use of the streets
to the interruption of business or the injury
It is a question of soma moment, and of
some intricacy also, what are the respective
rights and powers of all the parties in tbe
premises. The parties themselves, or those
which make ' themselves so, are pretty nu
merous. They are, 1. The public; 2. The City
f Council; 3. The Courts; 4. ; The property
. holders; 5. In the case of railways, the com
pany or corporation by which they are to be
constructed. It is not to be wondered at,
that men . and Courts become bewildered
among so many conflicting interests and jn-
risdictions; and there is nothing that is more
- wanting at this time, than a complete review
of all the principles which the matter may
' involve a "leadiug case," to serve as a pre
cedent in future proceedings.
The suing parties in this case are the pro
prietors of the land npon each side of a street
"- already in use by the public, npon which a
' company proposes to lay the instrumentali-
- ties for a style of transit hitherto unknown
to that loaality. There is no complaint on
' the part of the public. The City Council,
" proposing to speak in its behalf; has given its
..assent to the proceeding; npon which the
proprietors interfere, with a claim that the
new use to which the street is to be put, will
greatly injure, not the public, nor any por
tion of the same, but themtelvee impeding
their business, and reducing the value of their
property. This is the ground of the com
plaint; and is, also, substantially the ground
of the injunction. . .
; The general doctrine in respect to high
ways is this: "The owners of the land on each
side go to the center of the road, and have
the exclusive right to the soil, eubject to the
right of postage in the public." That is to say,
the first and paramount right in a thorough
fare, to which all other rights and In
terests are subordinate, is tbe public right.
It is to be exercised, of course, without wan
ton or unnecessary injury to individual own
ers; but it is also to be exercised without ref
erence to their particular interests. The
travel along a road or street may be of such
a character as totally to destroy tbe value of
their property; and yet, so long as it is legit
mately conducted, they have no valid claim
of redress. In short, although a qualified
title, the right of the public is, within its
The proprietors of the land gain a right to
complain. 1. When there is a perversion of
the" street from its legitimate purpose as a
thoroughfare; and 2. 'When, continuing to be
a thoroughfare, it is so used as to do wanton
or unnecessary injury to their property. It
does not appear to hove been ehown in the
proceeding to which reference has been made,
that there was danger of the occurrence of
either of these events. Wanton and un
necessary injury is a thing that can not be
anticipated; and, therefore.furnishesnoground
for a prospective injunction; and the ques
tion whether in general the use of a street as
the location of a railway is such a perversion
of it from its legitimate purpose as to Justify
proceedings to restrain, appears to have been
We do not see that the decision of the
Court in fact decides anything, except that
an injunction shall be allowed. It may be
the fault of tbe report, but. if not, it is a pecu
liarly loose and multifaced production. It
admits, as we understand it, the power of tbe
City Council to permit the use of the streets
to railway companies; then sets up a para
mount power m the proprietors of the ad
joining property "to compel the city, who is
tbe trustee, to prevent the use from being
perverted' without giving any rule by
which what constitutes a perversion may be
ascertained; and finally forbids, not the City,
nor the Council, but the Railway Company
from farther proceeding. Who is to be tbe
judge whether this or that act is a perversion
noes not appear; but the idea seems to be
that, in this particular case, the wishes of the
property-holders ought to govern; and that
it was the duty of the Court to put those
wishes in as Imposing a form as possible, and
give them to tbe public as tbe grounds of its
action in the premises.

The Great Prize Fight-Heenan and
George Wilkes, of Wilkee'e 8itity writes
a follows from London ta Ilia paper, under
date of March IS:
Of the great International event, 1 have not
a great deal to say, in Mention tow hut I
orave you last Wet. I then reoorted He-nan
to be at Salisbury, but In a postscript I an
nounced that he was about to leave in appre
hension tout an lntormation would be laid
against him tor an intent to commit a breach
of the peace. He consequently shifted his
quarters on Friday last It) Portsmouth, and
from thenre he came up to town on Sunday
evening, slaying over night at Jock Macdon
aid's, and leaving; the next morning for Win
chester, Be is now there, in the center of
the great bishopric, and if not within sight
of the cathedral, at least Within the sound
of its chimes. Cusnck accompanied him,
but Macdonald remained in town, and
will stay here to perfect some arrange
ments connected with the engaging of a
railway train for the morning of the fight.
He expresses the utmost confidence in
ITeenan, and represents his condition to be
all that could be desired, down to this
date. He has tried him In every way, and
says he now feels quite at ease about the dan
ger predicted by "Kl Hakim," concerning the
slumbering fire in his system, which it was
feared severe training would arouse. He finds
him tractable and obedient, and speaks with
enthusiasm of the manner in which he stands
the sharp brushes he gives him up the hills.
It is his belief he will be able to remain with
Sayers longer than the champion will want
to stay, and in the end to beat him at his own
game. Macdonald, of course, does not use
such words as this at large; on the contrary,
be looks modest, speaks well of his msn, but
rather concedes to the confidence of the other
faction by refusing to accept the odds of six
to four on Sayers, and offering to lay out a
little if the six be raised to seven. His con
fidence in Hee nan's stamina and staving pow
ers, however, are significantly exhibited by
his being willing to bet at even that the fight
will last an hour. He made three such bets
last night, and one, of ten pounds, was staked
by him in my presence.
I find that, out of pugilistic circles, the pre
vailing opinion of well-informed people is at
variance with the odds, and I continually
hear it said that "the American will win '

Hercules like Heenan. The fighting men, on
their port say that Heenan must be "a very
bad 'un if he loses," and, altogether, I fancy
that the betting is standing rather still.

and really believe they have a sure thing;
but thev emress this feelinir without n(T.

in which they support the pretensions of
Macdonald last night showed me Heenan's
colors, and thev are sufficiently "natinnnl"
to satisfy the most enthusiastic partisan. The
border is the red, white and blue, arranged
in the fashion of the stripes, and in the cen
ter is the American eagle, surrounded by the
tuirteeu smrs, wun me arcnea inscription
over it, of. "Mat thi Best Mm Wi." Th-
colors are furnished by Macdonald to Hee-
wu o usaus m a guinea eacn, payauie only
in case of victory, by those whose credit is
good enough to be trusted in that wav; while
applicants without credentials pay their
guinea down, and have it restored to them in
cose their champion lose. Nat Langham has
the public sale of our champion's insignia,
and Owen Swift has the charge for Sayers.
A good many of these emblems have already
been disposed of by both parties, and the
winner will probably realize a very handsome
addition to his stakes.
Another source of profit, and a very large
one, will be the income of the railway train,
and seats at the arena on the day of the bat
tle. In the fight between Sayers and Brettle,
this harvest yielded th h-.nrl.snm-, mm nf
$3,000, and it is expected that the returns for
me npproacuing tight will double or treble
that amount. It will be arranged, however,
before tossing for the choice of ground, that
these avails shall be equally divided between
each man, without regard to the result of the
main event. Each. tlirnfnr. u onrtnin
whether he win or lose, of being able to ap
preciate tbe fortunes of the day, and of being
well paid for the pummeling be gets.
Sayers is training at Newmarket Heath, and
enjoying his breathings in perfect security
from any interference. This is owing to bis
having chosen a racing neighborhood where
everything appertaining in any way to sport
is held as sacred, and not because of any In
vidious action on tbe part of the English
authorities, as between him and Heenan. In
tact, the maw-worms at Salisbury, who medi
tate binding Heenan over to keep the peace,
were defeated bv the magistrates th-ms-lv-
one of whom sent Heenan word of his dan
ger in advance, while another promised to
put a horse at bis command, to escape the
peril whenever it might come. It may be
necessary for him to shift his quarters yet
again, but the movement will not do him any
harm, for change of scene, and the refresh
ment it affords the mind, is often of the great
est service to a man in train. Sayers is re-

Mr. A. D. Rlcnardioq, formerly of the-Cin-tlnnati
nHSai, wild during the lost Summer
and Fall, traveled a thousand miles among
the Rocky Mountains and along their Eastern
Slopes, in Nebraska, Kansas and New Mexico,
has published the result of bis obaervations.
He says that quarts mininsr, Whic h requires
costly machinerv, must always take the lead
in the Pike's Peak region. Notwithstanding
the imperfect means lit opfiWiion fur crushing
the quarts, It is estimated that a million and
a half of dollars' worth of gold has been mined
there. Tbe average value of the gold is about
$16 per ounce. The largest nuggets discov
ered last season ranged in value from 140 to
$150. Recent advices) however state that
about the first of February, Moosrs. Temple A

During the past Winter, there has been about
ten thousand people in the Pike's Peak

between Long's Peak and Pike's Peak, from
North to South, and embraced within the

Burks Betors hi Grew Famous. It now
seems odd enough to hear the great Edmund
Burke spoken of in the way Hume speaks in
a letter to Adam Smith, the author of the
"Wealth of Nations." In a letter dated April
12, 1759, thanking Mr. Smith for some copies
of his "Theory of the Moral Sentiments,"
Mr. Hume says he has given several gentle
men each a copy; and among others he men
tions "Burke, an Irish gentleman, who wrote
lately a very pretty treatise on the Sublime."
That was then Burke's only title to distinc
tion; as Smith's Theory was his. But both
afterward became renowned throughout the
civilized world. Indeed, Buckle, in nis recent
work, refers to Smith as the greatest man
the world has produced.
