A TowitSHir without a PoBTornoi. Delhi
Township, though quite populous, has been
for two-months without a postofflce, a want
from which the residents there have greatly
suffered; being often compelled to wait six and
seven days for their letters, and sometimes not
receiving them at all. This defect ought to
be remedied at once, and that it has not been
before, seems very singular. . The village of
varaw, containing nearly, three hundred
persons, should be the looation of the postofflce,

Fatal Result or Cibrliss Driviro A
Bot Rev Ovib ARD Isstartlt KiLLiD. Cor
oner Carey was yesterday called upon to hold
an inquest npon the dead body of a boy, about
four years of age, named George Lansing, who
had been killed by being run over by a wagon,
on Western-row, near the Brighton House.
The driver of the vehicle, named George Cor
diman, it appears, was passing through the
street at the time of the aocldent, at the rate
of eight miles an hour, which, of itself, is
contrary to the laws of the city.
- The nature of the evidence, adduced before
the Coroner's jury, was sush that it was
thought proper to hold him responsible fcr the
death of the child before a court of jastioe,
and a warrant wrs therefore issued for his
arrest, but his whereabouts have not as yet
been discovered.
Fistival or thi Son or Malta. The prospeats
for the forthcoming festival of the Sons
of Malta, which will take place to-morrow
evening, are very flattering, and a large and
brilliant company is expeoted. "What do you
intend to wear?" may be heard when belles
meet upon the fashionable promenades, and
many a beauty, who never knew a care before,
Is now anxiously awaiting the arrival of her
oostume from the hands of her private moditte.
The affair ia something new ia the way of
an entertainment beginning with a perfor
mance of Tht Sertoli Jomi7y, and olosing
with a ball. Thus It will be seen that Thalia
and Terpslohore writ their cbtrms; and if,
under their direction, the company do not And

A Riotib Abrbstio abd Committrdto Jail.
A day or two ago a man named James Moore,
in company with five others, being somewhat
belligerently inclined, and wanting some food
for their demoniacal dispositions, broke the
doors and windows of the nouie of John Pfaff,
in the town of Dent, in Green Township, in
this county. Moore was arrested and taken
before Justice Wells, who committed him to
jail, to answer the charge of rioting at the
next term of the Court of Common Pleas, in
default of bail in the sum of two hundred
dollars.
During the above proceeding' a man named
Nioholas Billman was assaulted by the same
party nd severely injured. He also entered
complaint against Moore npon this ground be
fore the same justloi, who, upon this charge,
alio held him to bail in sum of $100 for his ap
pearance at the same oourt. The remainder
of the party have thus far evaded the vigil
ance of the offloers, and may probably esoape
, the punishment they so riohly deserve. ,

bold at their rooms yesterday morning, at
whtoh the attendance was quite large, and the
meeting passed off with much Interest to all
present.
The minutes of the previous meeting were
read and approved.
The following parties were elected as mem
bers of the Kiohange :
' 0. 0. Jacobs, manufacturer of rope, twine,

The amendment offered at previous meet
ing, to change the hour of meeting, was lost
The following resolution was dlionised at
great length, and finally adopted i
Rmolntd, That the dues of this Association
be reduced to five dollars psr annum, both for
individuals and for firms.
The committee appointed unon Wavs and
Means, and to present a clan for conducting-
the Exchange for the present year, presented a
report, whioh was adopted.
A motion to appoint a'oommlttce of ten, to
oanvass the eity for members, was adopted.
A committee of three was appointed to pre
pare a circular, setting forth the advantages
of the Bxehaoge, and te hare the same
printed and distributed as early as possible.
A resolution was unanimously adonted. re-
questing each member, when advertising his

importance to eacn or them individually will
be brought np for consideration.
Polios Oodrt. Judge Lowe examined
twenty-four cases yestesday morning at the
roiice court, most ot wnion were exceedingly
trivial in their character.
The persons who were charged with robbinst
tne inaianian, xungsiey, at nis ooarding
house on Sixth-street, near John, were d's
charged, there being no evidence which would
tend to their conviction. The transaction was
rather a singular one, and aa persons under
such oiroumstanoea are disposed to suspect
every one with who they oome in oontact, It
is not strange that without any tangible
reason the warrant for Mrs.' Cross and her
family was issned. No clue has as vet been
obtained which would fix the guilt upon the
cuipaoie party.
A man named Henry Wilkinson was charged
with overloading his wagon and deemed guilty,
for be had piled eighty hogs upon it. He was
ordered to pay the costs of the prosecution,
while William Koehler, who interfered with
the officer that made the arrest, was fined five
dollars and oosts.
A young girl about sixteen years of ace.
named Margaret Malloy, was brought into
Court upon a charge of atealing $11 26 from a
man namea Antnony Meyers. Tne girl was
quite good-looking and well dressed, but
poverty, often the cause of crime, had been the
real oause of her offense, and she confessed
having stolen $6 16, which she gave to the
offloer who arrested her. Her appearance and
apparent oontritlon for her fault, which was
doubtless the first step she had taken in crime.
induced the Judge to dismiss her upon the
payment or a nne ijiu ana oosts.
An Individual named 0. A. Strauss raised
considerable of a row night before last, near
the corner of Pearl and Sycamore-streets,
avowing; that he had been robbed of his watch
by the keeper of a boarding-house in that
violnity. He was taken into custody, and it
was discovered mat he was merely drunk, for
which be was lined f i and oosts. 1

Woon's Thbatii. Tib Fatalist waa ere
dnced for the third time last night at this establish
ment to a fair though not a (nil audience, We have
seen something more of the play, bat yet not aUJof It;
hence, we are still unprepared to pronounce upon It
fully. .The author la certainly entitled to some
credit ror originality, for he wounds bia hero in the
fourth act. and than brimra him nnnn theaenn. to
die In the filth act, without any agency save an in-
vincioie ounging to uie, wnion ne does not attempt
to explain.
The duel la effective, and aa tha aaana anani. Sli.

the matter. It Is much In Its favor, however, to be
compelled to say that It has been at least a partial
success; foritmust be exceedingly difficult to walk
erect in those literary paths in whioh Addison, Dr.
Johnson and Thornton havastumblad and fallen.
in regard to tne impersonation or "Hi. Leon," as
Mr. Powers is now retarded aa an artiat rather than
aaamatenr, we maybe pardoned for saying that he
is frequently faulty and sometimes positively Md.
nis raeMiiDiB are monotonous ana inelegant, a is
movements nnffraeefnl and his no km often nnnamral

appeared to a much greater advantage, and the play
would have been rendered much more effective.

Bibiovs AootsiMT Two Msit Ssvsrrlt, ir
bot ITataut, Wourdsd. Yesterday after
noon, about four o'olook. two men. named
Henry Weaver and Patrick Fitssimmons, were
severely wounded while engaged in working
wun some saw-iogs, on tne Dank or tne Lick'
ing.at the saw-mill of Messrs. LlvesevA Con
lan. Weaver was employed at the mill in the
plaoe of bis brother, who was hurt at the sime
place a few days since, and Fitzsimmons had
gone there tor a load of lumber. Weaver and
some others were engaged in detaching some
logs from a raft lying in the river, and Fitz-
simmons naa volunteered hie assistance,
While thus engaged, some logs from above
were precipitated down the bank, and striking
tne men we have named, knocked them down
and rolled over them. Weaver's recovery is
regarded as hopsleas, and the wounds of Fits
simmons are quite severe. The injuries of the
former are chiefly internal, while those of the
tatter are merely ail external.
Medical aid was called in, and the parties,
both of whom have families, were subsequently
uaen to tneir nomes.. ,
Polios Court. A man named Joseph Fani,
who hails from the clastic land of Italy, was
yesterday fined $10 and oosts by Mayor Haw
kins, for -abusing his family. Joseph acknowl
edged the heineousness of the offense, was ex
tremely penitent, but claimed that as he was
an Italian he had as good a right as Caesar to
demand tnat his wife should be above suipi
sion.

lighted. Suddenly we heard a loud thunder
ing crash overhead, and looking np saw the ,
shafting coming down all over the room; ter
rified, I stood fastened to the spot, although I
knew the building wm coming on me; then I
heard the overseer shout. I tried to jump out "
of the rubbish, but something struck' me
senseless; when I came ' to I found myself in
the rubbish, covered with blood from wounds
on my face. ' Firally I crawled np and got te
