RUMORID LOSS OP THK FBlCUTg CoNQItHES.
A distressing rumor provailed in Philadelphia
on Monday evening, to the effeot that the

The rumor, however, is probably a wicked

souroe.

ar The street oleanlng awards were not
disposed of by the City Fathers last night,

BAir., ic Coroner Carey held an inquest
yesterday over the dead body of Cornelius
O'Niel, who was murdered, night before last,
during an affray at his drinkiag-house, on tbe
Miami Canal, between Race 'and Elm-streets.
After a careful examination of witnessos by
the Coroner, the jury rendered a verdict "that
the deceased came to bis death by a wound in
flicted with a sharp Instrument In the hands of
Patrick McDonald." McDonald bavinc teen
proviouOy arrested, was examined by Judge
Lowe yesterday, and held to unswor boforo tho
Court of Common Pleas In the cum of ?ty)0O
bail.
The only positive evidence against Mc
Donald was his own admissions to the officers
who arrcstod him, which were "thr.t he had
attended a danc.o at the house of O'Niol, and
that a difficulty ensued, during which he
was assauled by a nunibor of persons; that
ha drew a knife, and cut ho know not whom."
Judge Lowo, in giving his docision, stated
that he had no doubt but that McDonald
had beon pursued by parties, and, therefore,
oonsidered it a bailable cnae. The prisoner
was committed, in dofault of bail, to answer
the charge of murder in tbe second degree.

Doctor Lkok vs. Doctor E, B. Eai.ikq
Afcr. Editon: In tho summer of 1851 I
was operated upon for a corn by Doctor Loon,
or Lyon, who removed therefrom three points
or corns, and was relioved entirely from paiu
for about srvxh yea as, about whioh time severe
pain was experienced. I then celled on Doctor
E. E. Ealing, who was then operating on Fourth ,
near Sycamore-street; having stated to him the
mode of oporation by Doctor Leon, he said "bo
had formerly been in his employ as an nssiat-
ant. and left him in ,10 it t.hnt W1 TW. I
tor Leon knew little or nothing of the profes- j
sion, 0." Doctor Enline then otieratod ucon
the same corn, romoving these points, or corns,
like oord wood out of a wagon, until, as ho
said, he had removed sixteen, when Doctor
Leon, after much patient examination, had
found orignally only throe. Quory: Ifthoro
inoval of three rolieved all pain for seven years,
bow long ought sixteen' Answer For lifo;
so said Dootor Ealing. What waB the fact?
Why just fix month, as mine are about as pain
ful now, and hare been for months past, as they
were boforo being operated upon by Doctor
Ealing. "These nre faots, and facts are stub
born things." The public will draw their own

Sewinc-Machines. Among tho many sewing-machines
presented for public consid
eration is that of Kelsey A Co. Hiving
carefully exmniued this machine, wa have
no hesitancy iu recommending it. to the con
sideration of the public. Persons in want of
a safe and reliable sewing-machine, should
not fail to call on D. W. Harrington Si Co.,
No. 30 West Fourth-etreet, and make a se
lection from Kelsey & Co.'s manufacture.
These machines, we are assured, have never
failed in one instance to give entire satisfac
tion; aud as for merit, will compere with
any other machine in the market.
pSr We learn that quite a number of the
friends of Mr. Slater, who was expelled from
the polico force for being engaged in the recont
kidnapping case, blame Mayor Bishop very
much for his docision in the matter. Mr. Sla
ter called on us last evening, and wished us to
state that he is sorry that His Honor should
he blamed; that ha thinks he done exactly
right, although he claims that the wholo mat
ter was "set up" against him by others.
EfTWe would eall particular attention to
the advertisement of the Soutbgate House, to
be found in another column. This house is
situated in a control part of tho city, conve
