TgssaiCHonsAir. The party last night at
National Hall, given by Mr. and Mrs. Shank,
was an excellent affair, and merry feet went
swiftly through the whirl of the voluptuous
waltz, or wandered in the mysterious mazes oi
"The Lancers," until the stars grew dim and
morning smiled upon the lazy Earth from the
purple Eastern sky. Like a delicious dream it
passed to most of the participants, and many
a soft-eyed girl, when day had dawned, went
with reluctant steps from Terpsichore's temple
unto Somnus's arms.
Shsiiif's Sams. The Sheriff's sales of
Real Lstate yesterday morning were quite
largoly attended, but the bidding was not all
spirited. Ten pieces of property were offered,
but of them but one was sold. It is described
as follows:
Lot thirty feet front on the north sido of
Bixin-streot and extending northwardly to
margaret-sircot; being situated in van Horn's
continuation of his second subdivision of part
of William Ban's land, and known as lot No.
555, valued at $6,333 34, and sold to James K.
Glenn for $6,705.
Wiktss in ths City, We now have such
aa aspect of winter as is raroly witnessed in
this latitude; genuine, unmistakable northern
winter, with ice and snow and skates and
sleighs. The hyperborean season eame upon
us suddenly and most uniuspectedly, and aaa
oonsequeoce, boing all unprepared for its ar
rival, we have been put to much inoonvonl
ence thereby. Furs and fires are in demand,
and every one goes about shivering, and say
ing to all they meet: "How cold it is," as if
the oerulean nose and the frost-red cheek did
not proclaim the fact in advance. Sleighs
were active yosterday, and all day and all
night the sound of merry bells and belles was
heard in the principle streets. Business is
sensibly aff ected by the cold, and, for the lime,
winter is allowed to sway supreme.
Destiuctivs Fibs in Dayton Loss Ten
Thousand Dollars. About three o'clock yes
terday morning a lire broke out in the resi
dence of Thomas J. Smith, Esq., on Front
street, direotly opposite the Cooper Female
Institute, in Dayton, and in a short time
destroyed the entire building. The tire ori
ginated in the parlor, probabiy from a defect
in the flue, and spread to every part of the
building with great rapidity. The efforts of
the firemen were almost without avail, for the
weather eaused the water to freezo in the hose,
and before they suooeeded in getting the en
gines to work, the house was burnt to ths
ground. The building was one of the finest
residences in the city, and the loss, although
nearly all the furniture and contents were
saved, will not bs less than $10,000, upon
which we believe there was no insurance.
T.M. M.L. A. LsoTtiass Rsv.'.H. W. Bkl
lowb's First Discourse Rer. H. W. Bellows
was detained until after the time appointed
last evening for his lecture before the Library,
and that the audience might be entertained,
Dr. Boynton discoursed for half an hour on
Geology. About nine o'clock the Rev. Mr.
Bellows was discovered sitting among the
audience listening very earnestly to the geolo
gist, and at once Invited to tbe rostrum.
The subject of the lecture the first of three
upon "Science of Society" was "The Conflict
of Souial Laws with Human Nature and
Christianity," of which we have only space
enough to say, the leading idea was that to
reason was not the normal condition of man,
and that enlightened Christianity was an ar
tificial state. People were selfish and vicious
ol themselves, opposed to charity and iustiso
so far as thsir acts wsre concerned.
They vers opposed to the beat and truest
that was in life, and only by cultivation, ex
prewion and elevation could they come to see
that themselves a band of brothers who owed
everything to each other. By love and sym
pathy ther were to be redeemed and lifted
into the atmosphere of a divino spirituality.
The Rev. Mr. Bellows will deliver his second
leoture to-morrow evening at Smith & Nixon's
on ths "Sources of Social Evil."

Suicidc bt Drownixcj A Man Drowns
Himsblp in a Cistern. A German named
Herman Hesse, yesterday afternoon, in a
fit of desperation, threw himself into a cittern
in the rear yard of his residenoe; at No. 62
Bremen-street, and was drowned. Coroner
Carey was called upon to hold an inquest upon
tbe body, whioh was discovered shortly after
ward, and, after a minute investigation of the
oircumstanoos, the Jury rendered a verdict of
self-destruction.
The deceased was thirty-two years of age,
ana leaves a wite ana two children, lie was,
habitually, of intemperate habits, and during
the past week has been more than usual un
der the influence of liquor. The Immediate
cause of the act could not be definitely ascer
tained; but' it proceeded, in all probability,
judging from the circumstances oonnected
with his death, from a long-continued effort
to reform, which, seeming to him impossible,
induced him first to despair and then to die.
Steamboat Collision. The steamboat Tel-etp-aph,
on her way to this oity from Louisville,
during the almost inpenetrable fog of yester
day morning, ran into the steamer iViorsit,
near Aurora, and tore away a large portion of
her after guard, although she did herself no
damage. Ths loss to tne Priorat will prob
ably amount to three hundred dollars, but, as
her rudder was also broken, the mall-boat was
compelled to tow her up to this city.

That our readers may the better understand
the working of this system, whioh is quite
simple, we annex the following description of
the mode of operation:
tThe signal station is a cast iron, oottage
shaped box, attached to the side of a house,
opposite a gas lamp, and communicating by
wires, enclosed in a wrought iron pipe, with
the signal circuit overhead. These boxes are
placed at every second or third oorner through
out iue city, seoureiy looked, and a key put
into the hands of each policeman and such re
sponsible property-holders as may be conveni
ently near the boxes.
We will now suppose the central office to
be at the City Hall, and station 5, district 2,
to be located at the Burnet House. A fire ia
discovered at the Burnet House; the person
first seeing it, would unlock she Signal-Box,
and turn a orank; instantly station 5, district
2, is recorded in the central office, and the
man en uty tnero presses one finger on a
key numbered 2, and instantly the church or
other bells ring twice and pause a few
moments, and then twice and pause again,
and so until ths whole city is alarmed; at
the taiiie (Me with the other hand he taps on
another key five times, and imtanthf a very
small bell in each signal station is struck five
taps ; then a slight pause, and again five taps
and a pause, as long as the large bells are
rung. The firemen and citizens are aroused
by hearing the large bells sound twice, with
intervals, which points out a fire in district
No. 2. They step to the first corner of the
street, and listening at the signal Btation a
moment, hear five taps upon the little bell,
which points out station five, in district two,
already designated by the large bells, and
thus in less then one mt'nute from the discovery
of the fire perhaps where it would not be
visible outside of the building for a length of
time the whole oity is inlormcd that the
hodse is on Are.
It is not easy to estimate the importance of
the time that is thus saved, and often the fire
department is concentrated at the soene of
danger before the flames burst out of the
building. The symplioity of the whole
system is its greatest recommendation, and
the present opportunity to witness its working
should not be permitted to pass by any who
are interested in scientific improvements, or
desire to introduce into the city so important
an instrumentality for the prevention of
destructive conflagrations and their attendant
calamities.
Steamboat Accident at Madison—Steamer
Rochester Sunk—Loss $25,000.
During the heavy fog of yesterday morning,
the steamboat Jtochater, Captain Robinson, in
attempting to make a landing about two miles
above Madison, Indiana, struck a rook or snag
of some kind and sunk in a few moments.
There were sixty passengers on board, who
were turned shivering into the frosty atmos
phere only partially clothed; but, by what
seems to be almost a miracle, no lives were
lost.
The boat was quite heavily freighted, hav
ing on board a large lot of hides and twenty
five hundred barrels of flour, most of which
will be wholly lost. The boat, it is said, is a
complete wreak, and the total loss, inoluding
freight, will probably reach twenty-five thou
sand dollars. The Jtoehuler, we believe, is
fully insured in Pittsburg, having policies on
the Pittsburg and Western- Insurance compa
nies of that city.

Young vs. the City of Cincinnati. Judge Mallon dis
posed of this case. The plaintiff iu 18.16 was appointed
Superintendent of the City Infirmary at a salary
S60D per annnm. He held the office for two years,
and gave the Directors a receipt for his salary. In
spring last he brought this action to recover HKJ for
extra servicea, because colored paupers were taken
to the Infirmary from the Peat Home. The number
of inmates in 1806 were about 700 white and 21 colored
the average during the rear was about 300 white,
and 12 colored.
It was held by the Court that as the plaintiff had
accepted his office under a fixed salary, and continued
his place froie year to year without claim of other
compensation, he could not recover ueona orANTt'M
a r suit. There was no implied agreement or prom
ise to pay. It was analagous to lees fixed by law, in
which case the roes only oould be charged or col
lected. The salary fixed by the rules or the Infirmary
Board, approved by Council, was thecunlract be
tweeu tho parties, and no recovery could be hail be
yond that amount, unless by express agreement.
