LOCAL NEWS.
For this soction light .-now cr rain, followed by
fair Weather and colder northwesterly winds
A Raid.?Between one auti two o'clock
yesterday afternoon an interesting game o:
keno was being conducted in a sequestered
room of a building on lower Prince street.
The participants were grouped around tho
table scanning their cards intently as tho
numbers were being called, when tho game
was brought to rather an abrupt termina?
tion by the announcement that a traitor
had been admitted to the fellowship
of the delegation, th.it tho police had been
informed of what was going on within the
room, aad that ihose not desiring to en?
counter the minions of the law had better
decamp instanter. "Chips'' were seized,
overcoats donned, and in much les3 timo
than it teke3 to tell it the former oecupaots
had made exits in various ways und scam
pered in as many directions. Tho police,
fortunately for the ibndlers of the playful
liger, had tarried somewhat after the infor?
mation had been lodged, and it was during
this interval that tho gamo had flown.
It seems that an individual whose conivial
tastes rather predominate over those for
games of chance has for some time beeu
ilroppiug geutle bints of the fact that it was
in bis power to bring the proceedings euact
, .1 id lite house ton decided termination,
aad tlits proprietor rather dreading such a
climax was wool to "entertain" the uncom?
fortable visitor by furnishing him with
ardeot potions. Yesterday, however, the
tormer upon perceiving that his beneliciary
wa-i rather dismembered, refused to ply bim
with auy more stimulants, when the in?
former proceeded to carry out his long
threateoed plan. Ho saw tho police ami
made tbe necessary exposure, bat by some
means ihe news of what he had done
reached the players, and, as stated, they
-oon vacated the premises, the police find?
ing no gaming going on wheu they arrived.
Tno second act in the drama then followed,
when an individual long known iu gambling
circles, whose profits in tho game were de?
rived from distributing "chips," iu scriptural
parlance, "seeing the hope of bis gains
gone," grew much incensed, and started on
a search for the informer, whom he soon
after accosted and knocked down. The dis?
comfited individual prcceeded to his home
much dejecti d. and about nine o'clock last
night after pondering over the scenes
through which bo had passed together
doubtless with contrition for Bending the
police to his former retreat, and smarting
under the castigation he bad received, be
gan making preparations for shuffling oil
this mortal coil somewhat after the manner
of Sardanapalus wheu besieged in his
palace, and in effecting his own flight from
things mundane, intended making hcla
causts out of the other members of the fami?
ly. Procuring some coal oil he proceeded
to carry out the last act of what he desired
to be a tragedy, and saturated the floor and
t-verytbing else in the room with the fluid,
and applying a match soon started a lire,
which fortunately wa3 discovered by some
other inmates of the house and subdued
before much damage had been done. The
would-be incendiary was arrested, aud this
morniug was brought beforo the Mayor
charged with drunkenness and attempted
hoti=e burning but the charges were finally
condensed to ono?insanity?and ho was
committed tor further examination. The
proprietor of the gaming house was also
cited to appear before, the Mayor to an?
swer the charge of permitting gambling on
hia premises, but was discharged, and
another party who it seems apprised the
players that ibo house was to bo raided, was
also dismissed, but the individual who as?
saulted tbe informer had his case postponed.
When the cave was cilled this morning
at the mayor's oflice the informer said he
was di unk yesterday; did not know what
be hud done, and bad no charges to prefer
against any one. The trial elicited no ev?
idence against any of the accused parties,
hence their discharge.

VEsterdaY was spring-like, and more
people were cn the streets than on any Sun

here, some "taking in" the place in open
hacks. The graveyards were visited by
scores, and in the afternoon the funeral of a

Tue Mission at St. Mary's Church
. i?eil last iiight. Tt wad a very successful
o?t\ Earlj* in the* week ih<- nomtier of
comrrtuaions began to increase, on Friday
tL*-riR numeroue. and on Saturday, at
I all tb, mass the rail wa3 several Graes
filled. Yesterday it seemed as if the entire.
I congregation approached the* holy table.
?At I! o'clock Father Denny preached on
the intimate union of our duty towards God
\ and towards our neighbor. Beginning with
j the parable of the Good Samaritan, he
showed that everywhere in Holy Scripture
j our blessed Lord inculcates that the poor
land suffering are his representatives, and
I that wo cannot pretend to love Ilim and
neglect or injure our ueighbor. At Vespers,
at 7:30, he dwelt on the declaration that all
believers are witnesses ot Christ, and, iu a
very plain, familiar talk, showed that it is
by their lives that they must give testimo
ny. By example, rather than by precept,
j be said, must men be brought to God, and
he showed, most forcibly, the far-reaching
influence cf example, cither good or had.
Ho then, after a short prayer, took the cru?
cifix in bis baud, and making the sign of
tho cros3 over the kneeling multitude with
it, gave them the papal benediction which
concludes a mission. The attendance had
been constantly increasing and last night it
overflowed tho church, large as it is.

by tho partial burning of one of the two

Duke street, between Alfred and Patrick,
in the row belonging to the Henderson es?
tate. The fire department promptly re
sponded and the flames were soon extin?
guished, the building sustaining much loss
damage by fire than by water. The fire
