A MODIBK PSITHKBILIA COHMITTID TO
Pbibojt. The raoe of the Amnions is not yet
extlnet, and although the stories told of 'Pen
thesilea and Thalestria may he nothing but the
mythoplasms of the antique poets, there are
women among us who would almost Induce
one to believe that both 'these personages were
real, and that if metempsychosis be true, their
souls have passed Into modern bodies. One of
these latter-day Imitators of those anoient
feminine warriors, named Elizabeth Rendrop,
was committed to the County Jail, yesterday
morning, for a term of three days, by Justice
Sohlee, of Milloreek Township, for an assault
oommitted upon one of her own sex, whose
name we were unable to learn. After lying in
jail for a few hours her sentence was changed
to a fine, whioh she paid and departed, her
fury, however, unabated by her temporary
incarceration.
AlXKJBD AtTIHPTID COKSTCPBiTIOX UroW A
Child. A day er two ago a man named Fred
erick Batter went before Justice Rowekamp
and caused a warrant to be issued for the ar
rest of John Verhuber, oharging him with an
assault and attempted oonntupr&tion, whioh,
It is alleged, was committed oa Wednesday
of last week, the 21st inst. Verhuber was ar
rested yesterday and taken before the magis
trate above named, where the oharge was
oaremlly Investigated, and w being deemed
guilty, he was committed in default of bail to
the amount of $500, to await a trial before the
next term of the Court of Common Pleas.
The female upon whom this outrageous and
villainous assault is alleged to have been made
is a fatherless girl of but eleven years gf age,
and is so small and delloate as to seem still
younger. - It is difficult to believe that any
one bearing the human shape could be guilty
of an act so entirely bestial; but if it be true,
we most sincerely hope that the party may be
punished by the full penalty of the law. - ,

A"Kmtdoit Bdooucist Dbtjqoid ard
Robbid. A Kentuekian named Henry Gall
arrived in this city a day or two ago with a
couple of horses, which he sold and afterward
strolled about the city, wondering at the great
ness of the Metropolis and Becking an adven
ture, Day before yesterday eveqing he wan
uorea into mac detectable locality known as
Buektown, and while there thought ha would
see life as it appeared from the standpoint of a
eveuui-raia oagnio. --
. He became somewhat enamored of the in
mates, whom he. found exceedingly sociable
and kind, and laughed, drank, danoed, and
sang with them until he suddenly became ob
livious to all that was passing In the outer
world. Yesterday morning he awoke and
found himself In an alley, in an unknown lo
cality, minus the little sum of $230. -
He looked about, but falling to reoognlse
anybody or anything, managed, after consid
erable difficulty, to find his way to his stop
ping place on Front-street, when he packed
his earpet-iack and left for the blue-grass
hills of bis native State, supremely disgusted
with the city, and with a lesson In bis mind
that will last him until he shall bare found a
horns la another sphere.
Polios Codbt. J.dze Lows. vMtarda
morning, examined twenty-four eases. The
following are the only ones that would seem to
be worthy of notice: .y-.
Our issue of yesterday contained ah ac
count of the arrest of a fellow nemed Lewis
King, who was surprised at the oorner of
Pike and Third In the aet of stealing a lot of
clothing whioh he found In the hall of a
building In that locality. Upon being taken
before the Police Court, yesterday morning,
he pleaded guilty to two charges of petty
larceny, and was sentenced to the County Jail,
at hard labor, for the term of one year six
months upon each oharge. .
Lewis Cox and John Smith, whe, were ar
rested night before last at the Fair of the Sis
ters Of Mercy, at the Melodeon Hall, bv Olfi.
eei Marmion, were charged with petty larceny
auu carrying concealed weapons. Xhe nrst
accusation wss not substantiated by the evi
dence, and was, therefore, dismissed, but upon
the second they oould not disclaim, and they
were fined esch $20 and coats.
The ease of William Hardt, who our read
ers will probably remember, was arrested on
Monday last for an assault and resisting offi
eers,was called, and the defendant discharged,
without trial, upon payment of the costs.
A pair of girls, of undoubted reputation,
named Margaret Francis and Jane Neely,
night before last, made the locality of Eighth
street and Western-row appear more like a
Pandimonium than the center of the metrop
olis, by yells and noises of the most unearthly
character, and, of course, found themselves.
upon returning to their senses, yesterday
morning, In the cells of the Ninth-street
Station-house. They were fined eaoh $10 and
oosts, and sentenced to the City Prison for a
term of five days.
A party of fellows, named Spenoer Winder,
James Day,William Thompson and LutsKlng,
were arrested night before last, at Wood's
Theater, for disorderly conduot. They amused
themselves by throwing their hats on the
stage and disturbing the audience by sundry
means, and were fined $5 and oosts.
A fellow, named Michael McAllister, who
keeps a grocery on the corner of Race-street
and Front, was fined $10 and oosts for selling
liquor on Sunday last, contrary to the city
ordinance.
SHiEirr's Balis or Rial E stats. The sales
of real estate yesterday by the Sheriff were

than usually spirited. Fifteen pieces of pro

Robinson's Discourse.
The lecture of Ber. George C. Robinson
last evening-," at Smith k Nixon'n, before the
Library Association, on 'Every lab on its
own Bottom," drew the largest ooaoourae of
the season, the body of the hall sod the
greater part of the galleries being filled with a
highly cultivated and attentive auditory.
The Reverend gentleman, who is a home
lecturer, began by expressing a hope that, as
a tyro, he would not be too severely criticized;
and then mentioned the Instance of John
Bunyan's knocking down a pile of tubs before
the door of a cooper shop, that he might see
every tub on its own bottom. The Idea em
bodied in this popular phrase lay at tha base
of all human oharacter and progress. .. No one
oould suoceed, no eauie prosper without the
possession, exercise ana aoveiopement of indi
viduality. tie considered the Individuality of eaoh fac
ulty, that of a particular faculty as opposed
eu ui outer laouiuos, tne mnueneo or all the
faculties combined; the faculties or character
as unbarmontous with a profession or calling,
and the individuality of man aa a reforms
arrayed against his fellow, the condition of
affairs end the government
neon one or tnoee points he amnl fledl in
various ways and with apt illustration), whioh
were well received and often applauded by his
audience.
The lecturer held that.the certain some
thins; We possess.' br what we differ from
others, when it pointed to apparent good,
would be obeyed ; that it was the revelation
of Nature, the God within us.
JMo man could fulfill his deatlnvbv fnllnw.
Ing others, or conforming to other standards
than those he had erected for himself.
It was well to select models, nerhans. in Ufa
and conduot, but we should assimilate with,
not imitate them. , . , , . ,
Free speech was what we most desired t
present, and that we should have at all
nasaras. ir we were in a community that
would not hear us, they should give way, not
we.
The history of mat minds and tha -wnrM
was the result of Individuality. Every im
portant event naa proceeaea irom. one man
who had bad the will to think, and the cour
age to act for himself. Dead forms and ereadi
and systems had strong influence still, and
clung to the neck of reason as the eld man of
tne sea to tne shoulders of Binbad.
We would have, however, at no distant day
what we deserved, what was necessary to an
emancipated soul a true home of liberty.
Rev. Mr. Robinson's lecture was interesting
and able, abounding in a happy illustrative
point and epigram, and singularly broad for
a gentleman of his religions persuasion.
BUROLAIV ASTD ArrilfrTani RnaaiB-v n
Viki-stmit. Yesterday morning, the res
idence of a well-known butcher named Mayer,
located on Vine-street, near Green, was fel
oniously entered by seme scoundrel whose
hardihood came very near being punished
with death. The fellow, It appears, effeoted
an entrance to me nouse tnrougn a back win
dow into the room in which Mayer lay asleep,
but some faux nos chiicaH a, nnian. n-1h
aroused the wife of the man he intended to
rob.
Without betraying any alarm the woman
waited antil tha hnrolu harl
another room, when, without making any un-
ucoeesery uoiae, sue arrousea ner nusDand,
and, in a whisper, informed him of the faot
that some unknown nocturnal visitor was
then in the house. He then arose, and taking
a gun from the wall followed the would-be
robber, whose ears it seems were quick, and,
divining the oause of a slight rustle whioh he
heard.inoontinently leaped through a window,
carrying with him the entire sash,

years, in tne cnarge ol some persons living in

with the irrespirable gas arising from a char
