Abbist or Pick-pookbts. For two or three
nights past several industrious members of
the light-fingered fraternity have been loung
ing about the Melodeon Hall, during the pro
gress of the Fair for the benefit of the Sisters
of Mercy, and have, in some Instances, re
lieved persons of their porte-monnaies. Last
night, Offioer Mormin arrested two men who
gave their names as J. P. Cox and John Smith,
Both of whom he deteoted in the ait of appro
priating the funds of others, and committed
them to the Hammond-street Station-house.
Both the parties were heavily armed, and
Smith had noon his person a recipe for the

Fight. A man named John Schlosser was se
riously wounded in a street fight, day before
yesterday, that occurred on Elm-street, near
the oanal. It appears, from what we could
learn of the affair, that ha became Involved
in a quarrel with a man, whose name we were
unable to ascertain, and during the melee was
hot In the leftside, the ball striking a rib and
glancing around the body rather than directly
The wounded man was taken into a drug
store on the oorner of Elm and Twelfth-streets,
where his wound was dressed, after which he
was removed to his residence. In the excite
ment caused by the affair, the would-be mur
derer escaped, and has not been heard from
since. The wound, although a serious one, Is
not dangerous, but it will confine him to his
bed for a considerable length of time.
Polios - CocBT.Judge Lowe examined
twenty-four oases yesterday morning, the
most of whioh were as unimportant and un
interesting as It is possible for any to be that
require the attention of a oourt of justice. The
following are the principal ones that were
disposed of i , .
Silvester Biglnus was arrested on a charge
of stealing a lot tt bed-olothlng, of the value
of ten dollars, from a boarding-house on Culvert-street,
and sentenced to pay a fine of $10
and be imprisoned in the County Jail, at hard
labor, for a term of two months.
- A fellow named Thomas Smith was oharged
with carrying concealed weapons, and a heavy
pair of Iron knuckles were found upen his
person. He was sentenced to the County
Jail fot ten days and muloted in a fine of $20.
A teamster, named Michael Coleman, was
fined two dollars and oosts for close driving.
We should be pleased to see this ordlnanoe
stringently enforced, for evary day almost we
see persons compelled to wait at a crossing for
five minutes, in consequence of a number of
dravs and wagons driven so olosely together
thai it is almost Impossible to pass.
James Donnelly, James Bowden and Mat
thias Hagerman were sent to City Prison for
a term often days each, for indulging in the
dignified amusement of abusing their families.
John Clark received a sentence of three days
in the City Prison, ond Patrick Hays a term
of ten days In the County Jail for similar of

Heavy Burglary of a Millinery Establishment
—Two Females Stupified by
Chloroform and Robbed.
, One of the most daring and sucoessful
burglaries which has taken place in this city
for a long time was perpetrated, night before
last, at the millinery establishment of Mrs.
Jamison, No. 121 Fifth-street. ,
It appears that the burglars effected an en
trance to the building from the rear yard,
through a window, by foroing open the shut
ters and then breaking the window fastnings.
They ransacked the store from one end to die
other and carried off silk goods, ribbons, and
other artlolea to the value of more than
They then proceeded to the chamber over
the store, occupied by Mrs. Jamison and her
daughter, to both of whom they administered
chloroform in quantities so large as to stupify
them to saoh an extent that at a late hoar last
evening they had not thoroughly recovered
from the death-like stupor into whioh they
had been thrown.
Unfortunately, Mrs. J. had drawn the sum
of $1,400 from the bank the day previous, in
tending to make use of it, yesterday, for basi
nets purposes, and this upon retiring she had
plaoed beneath her pillow. The sooundrela,
after securing both the money and the goods,
left the house with their booty their victims,
so noiseless had they completed their work,

couple of horses attached to a carriage ran
away from Wemecke's stable; in Court-street,
yesterday afternoon, and dashed up Main
street at a fearful pace. When near the canal
they ran against a farmer's wagon, and when
opposite Jefferson Hall, tbey completely de
molished the vehicle to which they were at
tached by running against a milk-wagon, the
driver of whioh only escaped death by leap
ing to the ground, by which feat he broke his
leg and otherwise Injured himself severely.
The horses were finally stopped and returned
to the stable, but the mischief they did during
their temporary madness, will involve a loss
of nearly $500, beside in ail probability maim

Yesterday's St. Louis Republican remarks :
There Is a heavy gorge of ice reaching from some
unknown point above down te the foot ot Uarr-street,
and extending nerrlv across to the Illinois shore.
This heavy mass of ice remained fast hut evening at
dark, and if it breaks loose will do more or less dam
age to the boats at the levee. There la also a gorge
of ice on a bar running very nearly parallel with
Bloody Island, but the forry-boats havo nodlffioulty
n passing around it.
Since Saturday evening last the river here swelled
two and a half feet up to dark last evening. In the
twenty-four hours ending at dark last evening, the
river rose one foot at loast. From twelve o'clock M.
until dark it swelled two inohe,and may bo reported
as atill rising slowly. This rise cannt proceed from
any gorge below, aa the river ia doubtless open to
Goose Island, alwut four miles above Cairo.
At last aooounta the river was closed from Cairo np
to Green Island. The rise In tho river at this port,
therefore, proceeds from a swell In one of (the upper
stream. The Missouri and Illinois rivers are both
tightly gorged the one at St. (Jhnrlea, and tha other
at the mouth, o that no considerable swell! could
come from either of those stream. The rise,thei
fore, oan come from no other than the upper atiu
ippl, and the Alton packots, down yesterday, report
a swell of fully one foot at Alton, and a channel of
five and a half feet between Alton and tit, Louis.
This la good water for boating, bnt the channel is
very crooked and much interrupted by gorges and
sunken Ice at various points. All the packets down
yesterday, and there were fonr, agree that there is
five and a half feet of water, and that the river is
rising. This rise doubtless proceeds from local
causes the two or three day of thawing weather,
4o. The weather was very warm on Sunday and
Monday; yesterday it was clear, and toward evening
the windcame strong from tbe northeast, with every
Indication of growing still colder.

Monetary and Commercial.
Business in the banking quarter was still
more active yesterday than on - Tuesday, and the
movement in the Money market continued brisk.
All financial operations are so carefully conducted
that capital is made to go much further than would
at first seem possible. Everyoornerls closely turned,
and every dollar made to pay for its enulvalent.
At the Disconnt-houses th offering remained
larger than could be accommodated, but they did aa
much of the first-class paper as they could at the
regular ratea-1012 per cent.
Eastern Exchange was very firm, the snpply being
hardly equal to the demand at X buying and
prem. selling rate.
In Gold and New Orleans Exchange no alteration
has occurred. Both are ia demand and scarce.
Iio change has ooeurred in TJnourrent Money.
This week will be a close one, of course, but after
Wednesday next tbe greatest pressure, it 1 thought,
will be over. -
Flour was In better demand yesterday, without
any change of consequence in the rate. Whiaky
was dull, and declined Ho. vet gallon. Grain and
Grocerle were ateady. Holder of Provisions were
firmer and leas disposed to sell. Hogs were stiffer,
bnt did not advance; 1,W0 head selling at $585

Th Imports It will be seen are more than double
of thsaame week of laat year. The increase I nearly
all in Dry Good.
Yesterday's St. Louia Democrat observes:
Th supply of Currency I better, and prospects are
that It wlil soon accumulate so aa to be difficult for
the broker to handle it. The demand for it to bny
hog with, ha In a great measure ceased, and tn the
urchaae of Eastern Exchange X per cent, difference
i made between it and bankable funds.
The demand fer Exchange, both on tbe East and
South I larger than tha supply. Sight on tbe East
is quite firm at', per cent, tor bankable funds, and
IX premium for Illinois and Wisconsin currenoy;
Indeed, no large amount could b had at 1M, and aa
it Is 1M at Chicago, the probability Is it will Hon go
higher both hare and there, as currency accumulates.
The Democrat of same date lays of Hogs In that
The packing teason approaches Its close. The num

On Thursday evening, January 6, the term of th
present City Council will expire ky tbe limitation of
tbe oity charter. Tbe member are elected for two
yean, one-half going oatof oUlce annually.
It is not our intsntion to pronounce an eneonium
upon tbe present Council, but we cin not. ee it pass
to It last resting place without besto viug upon it at
loast a paasing word. We will not pretend that, as a
deliberative body it is faultless, but we are of opin
ion that It will compare favorably with any of its
neighbor. The member have manifested a laud
able interest In the welfare, the honor and the integ
rity or tke city, and have frequently given their in
dividual credit for its benent.
The President, Major Goodson, and who continues
in office another year, has presided with dignity, and
in hi rulings has exhibited a good degree of Parlia
Meaars. Bloomer, Battesby, Rcse,Cambron, Mooar,
Hood and Longuere representing ward; in the
ordor of their names, retire from omce with tbe pre
sont Council, untafle re-elected. All, however, except
Bloomer, Cambron and Hood, are again soliciting
tbe suffrages of the poople, but with what success tbe
poll alone will determine.
Mr. Bloomer has not been regular in his attend
ance; and when present wa always silent, except
when called upon to voto.
Mr. Batteaby has been so long in the Council that
he may be regarded as permanently located there.
He is a man of good buslneas tact, seldom speaking
much, but does a great deal, is always prompt la
attending to all business intnued to him, ana en
deavor to further, in all things, the Interest of the
air. Rose, from the Third Ward, has, during the
last year, occupied the arduous position of Chairman
of the Committee on Internal Improvement, a
position requiring a large amonnt of labor, as well
aa a knowledge of mechanics. So faithfully as he
discharged bis duties, that all his act hare been
unanimously ratified by the Council. His influence
In that body Is meet potent.
Mr. Cambron is a man or "much speaking," having
a strong penchant to dilate upon every subject before
tbe Council. He is Chairman oi the Committee on
Law, and, aa such, has been called upon to investi
gate difficult questions, in which tbo interests of the
city are concerned. When an investigation bas been
had beforo tbe Courts, his view have almost invari
ably been austniued.
Mr. Mooar, from the Fifth Ward, is a good orator,
a ready debater, a sound jurist and a good buslneas
member. He is an economist, and in favor of main
taining the credit of th oily at all hazards. His ef
forts to induce the Council to adopt prompt and ef
fective measures for the protection of the rights of
the oity, In the matter of the sale of the Covington
and Lexington Hallroad, are known to and appre
ciated by all our citizens.
Mr. Hood is a silent member, but very regular In
his attendance. .
Mr. Longuere speaks occasionally, and attends o
the business intrusted to him witb promptness. He
la modest In his deportment and never intrudes his
views unless solicited.
At some future time we may take occasion to no
tice those members who hold over.

examine the body of th Infant recently found at the
residence of Mr. Kieth, conoluded their investiga

that It waa alive and healthy at the time of birth,
but whether it death wa occasioned by violence or
not, they were unable, satisfactorily, to determine.
The legal bearing or the transaction was likewise
Investigated by the Grand Jury, and resulted in the
discovery of the mother, an unmarried female,
named Mary Hays, who resides on sixth-atreet with
her mother, who is a widow. A bench-warrant was
issued for the arrest of Miss Hays, her mother, and
another femalt, named Ann, alias Mary Powell, who
halls from Clnsinnati, where she has obtained con
