Serious Accident to tub Drives of a
Milk Waooh. About half past three o'clock
yesterday afternoon, Coroner Carey was called
upon to hold an inquest npon the body of a
man named Henry Heinman, who had been
thrown from a milk wagon at the corner of
John and Catherine-streets, and was supposed
to be killed. The Ccronor found the wounded
man alive, although insensible, aud by his
exertions he was enabled to be taken to his
home below Millcreok. His injuries consist
of a severe cut nnon tha fnn .ml ul
bruises upon the head, one of which is a frac
ture of the skull, whioh may yet result
fatally.
Mar's TnioH Broesn. A horse attaohed
to a milk wagon ran awaj yesterday aftornoon,
on Elm-street, and threw the driver out upon
the bowldored pavement, dislooating his thigh
and othsrwise injuring him quite seriously.
He was carried to thai Commeroial Hospital,
where his wounds wero attendod to and he
rendered comfortable as the circumstances
would admit. He stated that his name was
Louts Shaefier, and that he had been employed,
but a short time since, by a man upon the
Reading Road. The dislocation of bis thigh
will confine him to his bed for a considerable
length of time, and from his appearance and
statement. there are those dependant upon him
who can not well afford to lose the support he
neretofore has given them.
Legal. The oasa of John Kain, who, some
three years Binoe, killed Singleton, for the al
leged seduction of his daughter, was sent to
the Penitentiary, and obtained a new trial, has
been in progress for several days before the
Court of Common Tleas, Judge Collins; and
yesterday, Stephen J. MoGroarty, a young and
rising lawyer, made m forcible ana eloquent
argument to the Jury in behalf of his olient,
the aged and grief-atrioken parent. For one
so young in years and legal studies, Mr.
MoGroarty 's effort was, in every respect, able,
and reflected treat credit upon him. His per
oration, in which he contrasted the reeeption
of a Washington Senator, on a somewhat sim
ilar oooasion, with his unbefriended client,
was very effective, and drew tears from many
eyes.
Scenes or Destitution. Lieutenant Brock-
ington, of the Polloe, and also Overseer of the
foor, in the Thirteentn ward, paid a visit to
No. 28 Aocommodation-street, yesterday,

mained there a part of the day and left in the
evening in company with a young man who
paid her bill, stating that he bad found for
uer a permanent Doardiog-bouie on Ninth
street. . .
She knew not whither she was going, and,
as she now admits, her destination did not
eost her a single thought ; for long before she
naia learneu, urouga some mystio power she
could not understand, to plaoe implicit trust
m ner companion, oeneving that he was' all
her. heart represented and her fanoy had
painted him.
After they had arrived at the house which
was to be her future home, they were shown
into a. oomfortably furnished room, and she
was told that in his absence for he Intended
to leave the next morning for Memphis she
would be taken ofere of by the landlady, who
was his friend.
Before the hour for breakfast the young man
bade her geod-by and left the city, aa the
believes, for the South. When she had fin
ished her toilet, however, and descended to
the dining-room she met strange faces and
persons, whose loud conversation and vulgar
appearance gave her cause for alarm; and
before the day had waned she became aware
of the fact that the man whom she loved and
trusted had placed her in a bagnio and de
serted her.
Bhe was overwhelmed at first with grief and
indignation, but was penniloss. In the heart
of a great city where she was a total stranger,
among a class npon which the doors of society
were closed, without friends or means, she soon
despaired, and camo to regard death prefera
ble to life.
Half Insane she remained until Saturday,
when she went out and wandered about the
oity like one forsaken. It seemed to her a
Sahara, and she looked in vain for an oasis.
No compassionate eyo in all her walk met
hers; no faoe she saw throughout the weary day
smiled on her kindly; and for the first time in
her life she felt the necessity of pouring from
her heart into some sympathetic ear the woe
with which it was well-nigh bursting.
On her return, while passing a drug-store,
the thought suggested itself, and she determ
ined to die. She went In, and, with the little
money still remaining in her purse, she
thought to purchase stryohnine, but it was
refused her. The denial seemed to render her
determination still more strong, and she
sought another store, but in this she asked for
laudanum, and with better success, for the
generous apothecary sold her an ounce of the
poisonous liquid.
She repaired immediately to her room, tell-.
iag toe lunniaoy oi tie establishment tbatsnc
did not desire any supper, aud taking her seat
at the table, wrote the letter which we pub
lish below. Morning had dawned before it
was finished, and, folding it carefully, she left
it npon her dressing-bureau, drank the con
tents of the phial she had purchased the pre
vious evening, and threw herself upon the
bed to sleep off life's fitful fever.
When she retired, by Borne aooidont, she
neglected to look her door, and as she did not
appear at the breakfast table, one of the in
mates of the house went to her room, and
finding it open, entered, only to be startled by
wha seemed to be the dead form of this mush
abused woman. Her brow was oold as if it
had already received the kiss of the Destroy
ing Angel, and her form was eovered with a
clammy moisture which told too plainly what
had been done.
The girl quickly informed her companions of
the circumstance, and they found upon exam
ination that "Dora" was still breathing. A
medical friend of ours, from whom we received
the story, was oalled in, who, through the aid
of a stomaoh-pump, removed the drug from her
system, and by proper exertion soon oompletely
restored her to health.
Yesterday the deserted girl left the city, but
whither she went no one oan tell. She de
parted mysteriously as she same, and no trace
is left of her here save the letter, evidently
written while gating into her heart with the
belief that it would soon cease to throb forever,
the memory of the incident which must have
left an indelible impression upon the minds of
all who witnessed it, and this simple relation
of another one of life's tragedies, for sush it
certainly is, although it has not as yet ended
with a death.
Her young heart has been crushed; the
fountain of her love destroyed, and whatever
be her fate in after life nothing remains to her
now save the memory of her blighted hopes,
and the dream whiob, like too' many others,
has been dispelled by the heartlessness of the
man who caused Its existenoe, and through
whose agency she has been deprived of the
brightest jewel in the oasket of a woman's
life her chastity.
The folio win 2 is a codv of her letter, whioh
was written in quite a delicate hand, and the
story, though old, is told with a simplicity
whioh will oarry with it the conviotion of its
truth, and beside this, show that the writer
must have had not only intellect but oulture:

Police Court. Judee Lowe tried but seven
teen cases yesterday morning, but of all these
not more than one seemed worthy of a para
graph. They were prinolpally cases of dis
orderly eonduet and drunkenness, and were
almost wholly without general interest.
A fellow named .nomas Kale was arraltrned
for stealing a piece of plaid from a dry goods
store, No. 168 fifth-street, kept by a man
named oimon jnetoner. lie seems to have
been an old offender in this way, and offered
drunkenness as an exouse for his orirae. His
previous character, however, arose in evidence
against him, and he was sentenced to the
County Jail at hard labor for a term of five
months.

Y. M. L. Lectures-Rev. H. W. Bellows
on the "Criteria of Social Progress."
gress," . v
'Rev.H. W. Bellows's third and last lecture
oa me -Dcicnce or Boetety," was delivered
last evening at Smith k Nixon's Hall, on the
"Criteria of Social Progreea," to rather a
small audience, compared with those of the
two previous evenings.
The lecturer set out by defining criminality
as the violation of right and the appropriation
of others property, and by stating that so
many fallaoies existed respecting criminality
that few knew what it was.
It was common to measure soolnl progress
by the increase or decrease of orimo, which
was all wrong, for that was looking at the
matter from one point of view only. If crime
inoreased, goodness increased also, and this,
the truest and best evidence of sooial pro
gress, could not easily be detected.

degree of wholesome knowledge on subjects
within their reach. Popular eduoation was
what was needed, not enough to awake and
arouse all the faoulties, for there was born
augmented disposition to err and to defraud.
A little learning was rot a dangerous thing,
and the people were gradually tending In the
right direction. The world was, every year,
understanding sooial progress and bow to
promote it; and the day was approaching when
all would be clear when false figures and
made-up statistics could no longer be oom
mitted instead of tho highest faculties of the
soul.

AMUSEMENTS.
Fikr's Opera-house. Quite a large and in
tellectual audience was drawn to the Opera-hones
last night, to witness Mr. Murdoch's rendering of
one;of Sbakspeare's greateet oreationa- Macbeth.
Like everything which Mr. M. undertakes, it was
chaste and elegant, and in evnrv tmrt w-. .ilmlrnMe
conceived and excellently enacted.
The tnise-en-acene was superb, reflecting the great
est credit upon both the artist and manager, nnd In
no place in the country, we are satisfied, in this de
partment of theatrical representation better exe
cuted. It is, indeed, a pleasure to witness a play at
this elegant establishment, lor, in all lta appoint
ments and properties, it is gotten op in a style rarely
eimaledon this side of the Atlantic.
To-night will be prsseuted Bulwer's admirable
comedy of Monet, Mr. Murdoch appearingaa "Alfred
Kvelyn" and Mrs. Conway aa ,fClara Douglass."
Iu the hands of these excellent .rtt.tjt thu. -ii...
acters will be faithfully translated, while we doubt
"H1; "v. "viuge, aa "uraves," will lament nia
"ttainta Maria' in a murmur th.t. will bun th.
audience in a roar. All who desire to see this play
admirably enacted should not fail to witness it at the
Cpora-honae tbls evening.
Wood'b Theater. The second audience of
Maggie Mitchell was in every rsapect equal to the
first, and nor Impersonations gave general satiafac
tlon. We do not admire the atrle of drama In which
this piquant and pretty blonde has made herself so
Unious; but are not aurpriaed that the naivete and
grace wun wnicn ene renders every character alio as
sumes has made her a favorite. To night she ap
pears as "Mathilda," in tfaecelebrnled di amaof "The
Frsnch Spt," und as "Milly," in the beautitul com
ediottaof "Tut Maid with thb Milkiko Pall.."
. National Theater. The audience last
night at the National was excellent, and Howe's
celebrated, though somewhat neglected, tragedy of
Jane Shoes was rendered iu an excellent manner by
Mra. Farren and the "old Druiy" company. The
"Letitia Hardy" of Fanny Titz, ia the comedy of
Till Belle's Btbateoim, waa a fine impersonation,
and, although we do not nd ml re the character, we
could find but little fault with the impersonation.
Tlioailectingtragedyoi'TuEOAMtaiEB, Mrs, Farren
enacting the part of "Mrs. Beverly," aud the beauti
ful comedy of The Little Treabube, with Fanny
Fits Farren as "Gertrude," form the attraction for
this evening.
Concert at the Nrw Jerusalem Temple.
The concert at the New Jerusalem Temple on Long
worth -street, between Kace and Elm, to-nigbt, prom
ises be a tine affair. Tho excellent pianist and musi
cal prodigy, Bophla Werner, will execute some of her
beet pieces, while the choir, under the direction of
Prof. H. J, Smith, will discourse moat eloquent mu
ale. The attraction leadaua to expect a large audi
ence, and we hare no doubt our anticipations will
be more than gratified.
Monetary and Commercial,

demands the bankers had upon them.

Saturday's New York Evening Post says:
The Money market leans in favor of the borrower
on temporary loan, but for discounts we notice little
or no relaxation from the advanced rates established
early In the market. On call 68i, per cent, are the
ruling rates, with exceptional transactions at 5i and
7. At bank no paper ia current below 7 per cent.,
and in the open market only the choicest short bills
at 6X.
In Philadelphia there Is a moderate demand for
Money on the street at 6ia7 per cent, for ".rat-class
short paper, or that secured by undoubted collaterals,
but second-class signatures are difficult to place at
810 per cent.
