but were not, at that time, fully advised of the
time upon which tbe property had boon bought.
We learnod yesterday afternoon that tho entire
lot contains a fraotion loss than eighteen acres,
and was ownod by Fieeman Carey, Wm. Robb
and John Miller.
Tho Commissioners have agreed to par for
it the sum of $4,250, of which $2,000 are to be
paid in County Bonds and the balance in cash,
reserving $1,500 of the purchase money until
after oertain judgments have been paid by the
parties from whom the land was bought.
Cincinnati Sdnda v School Union. A meet

that the attendance should be quite full. The

Pbovokinq Bbbich op ths Psack. A fellow

quaintance named Mrs. MoAneff, and forget
ting: tnat gallantry wnion is always quo tne
softer sex, called her some bard names, when
she, feeling that she would be tempted to do
his face some damage with the long nails at
the ends of her fingers, rushed off to the office of
Justice Bell, and oansed a warrant to be issued
for his arrest, upon charge of attempting to
provoke a breaon of tne peace. J. no magis
trate heird the case yesterday afternoon and
fined Pierce $5 and costs for his ungentleraanly

Hiobwat Robbeby. One of the boldest

while on his way homo, about twelve o'olook,
was suddenly seized from bebind by a couple
of burly ruffians, who held him as If he were

and waton wortfi aoout seventy aonars. xney
than released him, and one of them struck him
with a pair of brass or steel knuokles and
knocked him down; but before he bad re
covered from the effect of the blow they had
disappeared and made their escape, bo and'
den was the transaction, and so severe the
blow that felled him, he had neither time to
defend himself from the attaok or opportunity
to make himself acquainted with the features
of his assailants. To shoot two or three such
fellows dead in the street woold have a dooid
edlv salutary effeot UDon the remainder of the
class, and we more than half wish it oould be
done.

The Late Case of Prolicide—Unsuccesful
Attempt of a Servant Girl to Hide
the Evidence of Her Shame.
Tho case of Mary Lawless, who was
arrested a week or two sgQ. upon a
oharge of prolicide, was examined yester
day before Judge Lowe, and finally oom-
mitted to jail to answer the charge of
murder in tha first degree. The clroumstancsg
as developed at the trial were briefly these :
About a year ago the defendant became an
inmate of the family of a policeman named
Martin Fisher, residing on Front-itreet, be
tween Vine and Race, in the capacity of a ser
vant. She had not resided there long, bow
ever, when it grew to be quite evident that the
time wag not far distant when the effect of
having passed the boundary which society has
placed between virtue and vice would make
itself manifest to the world, disguise the mat
ter for the present as she chose.
As might have been expected, Mr. F. made
an attempt to rid himself of the girl, but she
absolutely refused to go, and than taking into
consideration her condition, he concluded to
allow ber to remain until some arrangement
could be made for hsr. A couple of weeks
since, the family went into the country upon a
visit and left her alone In the house, but, re
turning somewhat earlier than they at first ex
pected, they found her alone and in bed.
From their previous knowledge and some
tell-tale marks which they found upon the bed
and floor, they were induced to believe that
an event had taken place in their absenoe,
which the girl would fain eonoeal, and upon
instituting a searoh of the premises they
soon found that their worst fears were not
without foundation, for the dead body of a
newly-born infant was the reward of their in
vestigation. Coroner Carey was immediately called upon
and an inquest held, which resulted in a ver
dict that the child had come to its death from
violence at the bands of its mother upon the
testimony of Dr. T. 1. Neal, who made a mi
nute poit mortem examination of the body
and gave it as his opinion that the child was
alive and as healthy when born as children
usually are at that time.
The girl was, of course, arrested and com
mitted to the Station-house, but has been so
ill ever since mat Her examination was post
poned from time to time, until yesterday,
when it was held with the result we have
given above. Since her incarceration we
learn that she has admitted the facts proved
against her; but offers no excuse for them
except an unconquerable desire to hide the
result of an illicit intimacy which, If known,
would banish her from the position she held.
Heavy Swindling Operation—A Fourth-
street Firm Adroitly Relieved of
Nearly $500 Worth of Jewelry.
Day before yesterday, a tall and rather gen
teel-looking man stepped into the jewelry es
tablishment of Duhme Sc Co., on the corner
of Fourth and Walnut-streets, and selected e
quantity of jewels to the amount of nearly
$500. requesting that they might be laid aside
until the afternoon, when he would call and
re-examine them in company with his wife.
He did not make his appearance, however,
until yesterday morning, when he again
called, and stating that his name was George
Marsnall, and that ne resided in .Lexington,
Kentuokr, wished the articles he had selected
to be sent to the Soutbgate House, where he
was stopping, as his wife was too unwell to
visit the store, and he was desirous that sho
should see them before they were finally ac
cepted. 'i'ney were accordingly given to tne errand
boy of the establishment, with instructions
not to let them pass out of his hands nntil
they had been paid for. Upon going to the
hotel he found Mr. Marshall and was shown
to his room, where the jewelry was again dis
played and the purchaser appearing quite well
pleased with it, set down and drawing a check
lor tne amount upon a uiru-oireot Danaiug
house, gave it to tho boy and received tbe
following receipted bill :

As soon as Duhme & Co. reoeived the obeok,
one of their clerks was sont out to draw the
money; but upon presentation at the counter,
he was startled by tne intormation tnat no
person of that name kept his funds with them.
He hastened naoK to tne store ana tnenoe to
the Soutbgate Houso, but Mr. Marshall had
just loft, and of courcc was nowhere to be
lound.
The police wore immediately informed of
the transaction and tho gentleman described,
but as yet tbey have been unable to obtain any
information of his whereabouts. Tbe length
of time that elapsed between bis departure
from tbe hotel and tho discovery of the triok
was not long, but In all probability sufiioient
to enable him to effectually conceal himself
or escape.
ANOTHIR ATTBMPT OF THB EuRCILiR, Kkn-
hbdt, to Bbbak Jail. George Kennedy, the
barglar, who a few weeks ago made an at
tempt to escape irom tne uounty oati in nia
wife's clothes, was detected yesterday morn
ing in a second effort to fly from the custody
of tbe Erierian-handed law. The jailer, Mr.
Shockley, being aware that his shackles had
been cut, night before last, narrowly watched
his movements and was rewarded by seeing
him take them off, emerge from his cell
through an aperature he had made in the
gratiDg and commense operations on the gra
ting ot the window on tbe nortn side oi tne
main ball ot tne laii.
He had not proceeded far In this business,
however, when the watchman of tbe jail, Mr.
Haller, called to and ordered mm oacg into
his coll. This he disregarded, and Mr. U,
fired at him. when, thinking he had aroused
the wrong passenger, he made an effort to
shield himself from the range of tho watch
man's pistol. The jailor then entered the
hall and confined him again in the dungeon,
after shaokline both his hands and leet.
Upon reaching the cell in whioh he had
been confined, two saws and & file were discov
ered, all of which seemed to have rendered
him considerable service. He has already been
convicted of burglary, and is now awaiting
trial unon two separate obarges of shooting
with intent to kill, whioh, if his perseverance
does not serve him better in the future than it
has heretofore, will certainly send him to the
capital of the State to pursue there his Jaek
eneppara-iiae propensities.
. Whbbbabout op ar Abscokdiro Mbrcbirt,
Henry Falls, the Fourth-street oarpet dealer.
It appears from a letter reoeived here a day or
two ago, has set sail for Australia, where he
has a brother in business. As many of his
creditors have been desirous of learning
whither Mr. Falls went, this information may
not be without Interest. She story of some
his friends that he was arranging with bis cred
itors in New York, and that be would soon re
turn hither, has began to assume a slight
semblance of being unfounded.
Maqisibbiai. Compliment to ths Faib Sbx
Justice McFall stated yesterday that nine
tenths of all the oases which had come before
him during his magisterial career, involving
assaults nnd all manner of quarrels among
men. had resulted from women, and that he
believed most of the trials before Courts orig'
mated from the babbling tongues of the in
more-than-one-sense weaker sex.

DISCOVERY OF QUARTER OF A
MILLION OF DOLLARS IN COUNTERFEIT
BANK-NOTES.
Plans and Movements of a Large Gang
of Counterfeiters Thwarted—Important
Arrests.
Detective Roan during a recent trip to the
West accidentally foil in with teveral coun
terfeiters, and, alter arresting one of the num
ber, obtained the knowledge that within the
last month at least $250,000 in counterfeit
notes, mostly tens, on tbe Canal Bank of New
Orleans, had been engraved and prepared for
circulation in Indiana, and that different par
ties bad been engaged to circulate it simulta
neously throughout the West and South, roly
iag upon New Orleans, St. Louis and Cincin
nati as the chief points of operation.
Beany has a number of the ten-dollar notes
in his possession, and they ere among the
best counterfeits ever made in this country.
They are fac nmilet of the genuine, and so
closely do they resemble it in design, engra
ving, filling up and signatures, that no one but
the most experienced teller or cashier could
determine their true character. -
The notes were put out only a few days ago,
and one party was to, and did leave, Cairo with
$128,000 to operate in New Orleans, while an
other was to repair to St. Louis, anu a third
to this city, with tho balance; and ali begin to
"shove" it at one and the same time. Tho notes
are so admirably done that the gang believed
they oould get off an immense lot before the
bills were deteoted; but by the cunning and
energy of Heaney their plans are thwarted,
at least for the present.
The oircumstaooes by whioh these discover
ies were made, are these. Reany happened
to be In the Ohio and Mississippi Railroad train
coming West, when, near Sandoval, ho observ
ed six persons, four men and two women, on
the train, whom he knew to be counterfeiters,
having seen them here and elsewhere. As
soon as the leader perceived the officer, the for
mer had the train stopped for some pretext,
and got off with fonr of the party. Reany
knew, if he followed those persons, that he
would find no money on them, and therefore
conoluded to remain In the oars, and watch the
chap left behind.
lie did so, and soon detected the fellow
passing on the conductor a ten-dollar note.
Reany seized the scoundrel, and, after finding
several of the bills on bis person, stopped at
Salem, nine miles this side of Sandoval, and

examination in default of $1,000 bail.
iteany men telegraphed to St. Louis and
the party of five, save one the leader again
were arrested; but as little money was found
on them, the quartette were dismissed. A
telegram was also sent to JNew Orleans, warn
ing the Cashier of the Canal Bank and others
to be on their guard against this spurious pa
per. A dispatch was received from New Or
leans for Reany last evening, but when we
saw him, at a late hour, the document bad not
come into his possession.
The whole affair has been well managed,
so well, indeed, that the $250,000 will not be
put In circulation for some tirao, if ever.
Reaney expeotB, ere long, to arrest some of the
conductors of this movement, and seize upon
the engravers' plates and all the apparatus.
Unique Case at Law—A Woman Cowhides
a Man and Her Husband Challenges
Him.
A unique case was tWed yesterday after
noon before Justice McFall, in which one
wm. uann, residing on the Observatory Road,
was plaintiff, and Wm. K ixon and his wife
defendants. It appears that Mr. McCann and
Nixon either occupy the earn i premises or are
next-door neighbors, and that Mrs. N in
going for water, is compelled lo pass through
McC.'s kitohen.
On a certain occasion, as she illcgcs, while
ongagod in her aqueous duty, tho plaintiff in
sulted her grossly, and foeling justly indig
nant, sho resolved, in the absence of her bus
band, to right hor own wrongs. She thcroforo
obtained a cowhide, and applied it vory in
dustriously to plaintiff's person, who, too gal
lant to defend himself, and too brave to ily,
endured thecastigation stoically.
Soon after this tho husband was mado ac
quainted with tho circumstances, and think
ing tnat MoUann bad not been BUlnoiently
punished sent nun a challenge to mortal com
bat. The plaintiff was willing, he declared,
to indulge in a fight with nature's weapons,
though with none other; but this proposition
being rcjeoted, MoU. sought redress nt law.
After hearing the testimony in the case, the
Justice delivered an elaborato opinion, and
fined him $5 and costs, for an attempt to pro
volte a breach of tbo peaco, and held Mrs, N.
in $200 for the assault, declaring his opposition
to all such procoedings by women, who wore
shielded by their sex from retaliation on the
part of men.
