A Dbaymak RunOvbb bt His Owb Vhici,b.
An inebriated drayman named Michael O'Don
nell, while passing up Broadway, between
Fifth and Sixth, yesterday afternoon, fejl from
his vehicle and was run over. Fortunately
tbe dray wrb empty or he would uudoubtedly
have been killed, for the wheel passed diago
nally over his chest and face. As it was be
was quite seriously, although not dangerously
injured his face being bruised considerably
and his head badly cut apparently by tbe fall.
He was ploked up by some persons in tbe
neighborhood who placed him upon his dray
and drove him to his residence on Culvert
street, a short distaqce east of Broadway. .
Sbbiocs Accidbht to a Littlb 8irl. A
child about five years of age, daughter of a
Mrs. Charlotte Munsen, residing on Seventh
street, near Cutter, met with an aooident day
before yesterday by which she has entirely
lost the sight of her right eye. She bad a
pen-knife tn her hand which belonged to her
brother, who is a few yeais her senior, and
they were ohasiog each other about the room
when she fell, tbe blade of the instrument en
tering the ball of ber right eye, destroying tbe
sight forever. Apart from the damage done
to tbe eye of the girl, the wound Is considered
dangerous, as the knife passed through the
socket and into the head, and upon this
account it Is feared may yet prove fatal. ,
Covtmiptiblb and Dastardly Outbaob A
young lady, whoee name we withheld from
motives of delloaoy, while on the way to or
from the Opera-house, night before last, was
made the viotlm of one ot the most contesap
tible acts we have been oalled upon to record
for a long time. Some scoundrel, who de
serves to be dealt with without mercy, appar
ently by the nse of a syringe, threw vitriol
upon quite a valuable opera-cloak, and com
pletely ruined it Her dress was also injured
slightly, but the damage could not be com
pared with that which was done to the cloak.
This Is a speoies of villany which is wholly
without excuse, and betrays a depth of degrad
ation and malice which, we thank heaven, is
seldom found.

Sudobk DiAin of a Youro SlBk OoBfrNBR'S
Irqpbbt. Ooroner Carey, yesterday morning,
held an Inquest upon the body of a girl named
Anna Mary Bohrr aged fourteen years, who
died quiet suddenly at the ressdenoe of some
relatives, at No. 100 Richmond-street.
About four o'clock on the afternoon of Tues
day lagt she complained of a severe pain in
the head, and laid down upon the bed, while
her cousin left the house for a few moments
to inform her mother of the fact. Befbrs she
returned, however, the girl had died.
She was a semi-orphan, having lost her
mother, in Germany, and as her father was
absent from the city, and no one living in
the house at the time of the death, it was
thought best to hold an Investigation ofths
circumstances connected with, her sudden de
mise, .i . . t
Upon holding a post-mortem examination, It
was discovered tbat the girl had reached the
most crttloal period of woman's life, and the
Jury decided that death was superinduced by
congestion of the brln, In consequence of the
effeot of a cold upon her delicate organisa
tion. ' '"

Poliob Court. Judge Lowe examined
twenty-six oases yesterday morning,the greater
part of which were uninteresting and unimpor
tant. . ...
A man : named Rlohard Palmer was ar
raigned upon a charge of an assault with at
tempt to kill another, named Martin Hunt,
whom he beat very severely night before last,
at some drinkiog-house in the Fourth Ward.
Tbe case was eentinued nntil the 16th inst,
snd tbe defendant held to bail for his appear
ance at that time in the sum of $5,00.
' A fellow named Edward Wilson wss charged
with tbe superlative meanness of an assault
upon his landlady, Mrs. Elisa Thayer, and
sentenced to pay a fine of $5 aud costs, but in
default of which he was committed to tbe City
Prison. The punishment seems to us to have
been quite light, for there is something so
cowardly and brutal about the act of abusing
a woman that it seems to us wholly inex
piable. .i ., ,r . . '. ,
Womar Badly Ikjursd bv a Fall, A wo
man named Margaret Ranoh, residing some
place on Buckeye-street, slipped day before
yesterday on the pavement in front cf her
residence and fell, striking her head upon a
stone-step, it is feared,- fatally fraotured her
skull. She was taken up in an insensible con
dition and taken Into the bouse, but medical
aid as yet has been of little avail, and she stilt
remains in a state of semi-unconsciousness.
Mrs. Rauch is about thirty-fire years of age,
and is, unfortunately, in that much-to-be-regretted
condition which Is always thejore
runner of maternity.
: PBOcisMROS OF THB CODKTV CollMIBSIOSSBS.
At the regular session of the County Commis
sioners, held yesterday morning, orders were
passed amounting in the aggregate to $ 819 26,
Messrs. Roudebush and Shaw, Commission
ers of Clermont County, were in' the city yes
terday, and a joint session, aojording to ap-
f (ointment, was held for the purpose of se
eding a President of the Union Bridge Com
pany. After a number of ballots, John N.
Rldgeway, Kiq., was elected to that position;
The report of the Treasurer showed that there
are now $844 59 in the treasury cf that Com
pany.; '' i
ThbRed Mrn'b Ball. Tbe Seventh An
nual Treaty of the Wyandotte Tribe, last night,
at the Melodeon Halt, was in every respect a
fine affair. The eyes of the females of the
party did not grow less bright as the morning
came, and the Hunting Moon, we are satisfied,
never gated upon a more joyous company.
The dance was oontinned until a late hour,
and the music, whioh was excellent, oaused as
much pleasure, apparently, to the few who did
not devote themselves to Terpsichore, as to
those who were the greatest votaries of the
graceful goddess.
A rr t st or a Dgsbrtbb. About a year ago
a fellow named William Shotley deserted
from, the Newport Barracks, and since . that
time has not been heard from, until yesterday,
when he went into the Hammond-street
Station-houso for some purpose, we know not
what, and was detained by Officer Riggs. His
case, will be disposed of this morning by Judge
Lowe. " ..
" RUMOBRD SOICIDR OP A MeMBRI OP TNI Po-
lici Foecs. There was a ruaor in the oity
yesterday to the effect that a member of our
police force had committed self-destruction at
a small town in Indiana. We have no means
at present of arriving at the truth of the story,
and therefore withhold the nsme, giving the
rumor just as It earns to us. ,
' Fikb JswelrY. We call the attention of
bur readers to the fewelry establishment of E.
k D, Kinsey, No. 24 West Fifth-street. 1 Their
Stock is one of the finest in tbe ityf and has
been selected with the utmost ears. They
seem also to be fully prepared to please the
most fastidious fancies, and execute all orders
with promptness and dispatch. '
Jobk Kain Acvittbd. The iary in the
ease of John Kain, for several days on trial
for the murder of Singleton, with which oar
readers are familiar, yesterday afternoon re
turned a verdict of "not guilty," and the
prisoner, as we believe he deserves to be, was
aoqultted.

AMUSEMENTS.
Pus's OpxRA-HOI'SK. Bulwer's Imsiltifttl
Jay of Moarr drew a large and brilliant anrit-ure to
ue Opra-lioiise last night, and ae sill venture I"
assert that no o la this ilireter 'rfore '. It s
well enacted. U every part It was well jit!, and
tbe principal characters were adminiM)' pcrjunlfM.
Td-nlHt Mr. Murdoch will appear A "Il;iisl,t,''a
character In Which be tins dot a anfurjtr upon the
stage. Airs. (Jon way will enact "Ophelia," arid those
who are beat acquainted with her iinrit, will be moat
easily Indobed to believe that It will lie a beautiful
impersonslion. In the farce Mr, Dariileeaud Addle
Proctor will both appear,
Wood's THiatsr. A good sudiosce at
tended this Theater last evening, snd were highly
pleased apparently witb the plquaule Haggle's per
sonations. She has a peculiar mode of reudormg
herself popular which, we confess, we do not under
stand. This evening she appears in Uardot, tbs
PovLTat Dealib, and Katy O'Shisl, two pieces
the hss rendered very attractive through hsr repre
sentations. She has many admirers in this city, and
we presume she will have a largej audience.
National Trbatsb. Mrs. and Miss Farren
seem to be pleasing tbe habltaes of the National,
and were greeted Ust night by an excellent audi
ence. To-night Mrs. F.will appear as "Airs. Haller"
In Kotzebue's tragedy of The SraAxora while Fan
nie will delight bet admirers with what, we doubt
not, will be excellent rendering of the ensracter of
"Francine" in the beautiful drama of QaitT tothi
Mill.
Eakb's AsbTro Panobama. Kane's Arctic
Panorama opened last evening to a large audience,
at Smith A Nixon's Hall. It Is a flue thing, and all
who fool an interest in the North Pole (as Sydney
Smith's friend did,) should not fall to see it at an
early day. As a painting. It is one of the best that
has ever visited this city.

the night of the 18th of September, in the nelghbor
boodof Camp Wiubtugron, while he was walking borne
be saw two men staudlug by a tree, one of whom,
Bannegan, sprung on blrh and threw him down, and

lar bill and a gold chain, worth $15, which were in
his pocket-book. They both then ran off along the
tow-path of the canal. The witness neversaw either
of the men before, but Identllied them positively
Verdict of guilty. Gaines for the Slate, A. H. Hock
ing for defence.
Kxsult or the KAUtTni.iL.-Mr. Gaines made the
closing argument for the State In the case of John
Kain, tried for the murder of Richard Singleton.
Judge Collins, in the course of his charge to the
jury, adverted to tbe excuse or jnstillcatiun setup,
that the deceased bad seduced the daughter of the
prisoner.
Supposing, lie remarked, It were true, it would uot
fHI'ord a justification, or shield the defendant, al
though no more grievous injury could hare been in
flicted upon him. It was not for them to try tbe
cime by any hii'lier law than what was written, and
the statute of Ohio does not say that a niau may
shoot tha seducer of his dainrhtor-not even in the
first transport of Ills paseion, anil when the provoca
tion was recent.
Still, the jury was permitted to consider how far
the brother who vindicates the rnln of a sister, or the
father the seduction of a daughter, Would he moved
by mallce-or in the lirst transports nf grief how tar
either would he capable of that deliberation which
by the statute of Ohio were made the principal In
grediuntsof murder In ibe lirst degree. - "
The jury was also very fully instructed by theCourt
on the law of insnnltysuoh a plea having benn set
npin tbe case.

There is fire feet scant in the channel ont to Cairo,

The laat arrival from below reports four lie! six

There) was no ice of any consequence floating lu the

navigation anywhere between this port and Cairo.
The boat have only to contend with the numerous
sand-burs.
We Uave no late accounts from any oftha upper
rivers. The M la.liialnnl la siiddobm! to be nearlvcloar
of Ice to Keokuk. Tuo Illinois and Missouri Rivers
