$800 to $1,000, which, we feel assured, is the
outside Ogure; but one or our neignnors oaue

uary, 1845, fourteen years ago, the ediloe last
known, as the Cincinnati College was burnt
own. 1 It occurred on Sunday morning. The
lire breaking ont near the roof, it was bat
short while until the cupola was consumed,
and the bell fell with a crash. The alarm had
not been extensively given. The fire occurred
as the congregation of Sr. Joshua Wilton was
engaged In the morning prayer in the
Doublehom Steeple Churoh, and for fear
of disturbing the devotions Sexton Martin
did not ting the ehurch bell, the relia
ble fire alarmist of that day. The flames
spread with such rspidity as to make it diffi
cult for the members of tbe Young Men's
Mercantile Library Association to save their
books, papers and paintings. Gen. Harrison
had been In the smoke and fire of war, and
Charles Hammond had met many antagonists
without retreating, hut this time their portraits
were hurried out of tbe buildings at great risk
of their safety.
Merchants and others soon subscribed over
$10,000 to a fund which gave the directors
means to Invest In the ownership in perpetuity

and reading room
The excitement created in the nubile mind
of this oity, caused by the arrival in this
country and in Cincinnati of the far-famed
educationalist, Joseph Lancaster, of England,
induoed the public-spirited cittsens of the
place to secure the erection of the building
whioh we have referred to.
It was known as the Lancaster Seminary.
It consisted of two wings, each ninety feet In
length, the intermediate building being thirty
two feet in front by forty deep. Moses Daw
soli, who had been a teacher in Alexandria, I).
C, and a pupil of Lancaster, was brought out
to bohduot the school. The school went into
operation on the 17th of April, 1816, and for
a while the teachers were supported by the
interest of a food established by CapL John
Kldd for the education of poor children in
this city, the Cincinnati, College, prgeniied
in 1820, sncceeded the Seminary. Philander
Chase, Episcopal Bishop of Ohio, was, for a
suon time, tne rreaiaent. Mr. JSdmund Har
rison for a while had charge; also, Dr. Elijah
Slack, who still resides among us.
We regret that this favorite locality for
sohcol and college instruction it no longer occu
pied by tbe Cino'nnatl College for the pur
poses for which they obtained the possession
of the property. It was the lot on which, in
territorial times the first frame sohool-house
was built, and was part or the half square held
by the First Presbyterian Sooisty of Cincin
nati. An TJbprotsctsS Fbulb Hbb Owb Law-
An elderly female, belonging to the olass gen
erally known as unprotected, appeared day
before yesterday morning before Judge Lowe,
charging an omnibus driver, named George
Miller, with having treated her rudely, and
claimed tbe protection of the Court. She
stated that she arrived in the oity at three
o'clock Tuesday morning, and was placed In
omnibus No. 9, to be driven to the United
States Hotel. It appears there ware five
other persons in the vehicle, four of whom in
tended stopping at the Madison House, and
one to be taken to the ferry-landing.
On reaching the Madison House the driver
requested her to stop there, but she refused.
After he had driven to the ferry landing he
entered the omnibus and endeavored by force
to expel her, when she struck him In the face
and called the watch. She was then taken to
bet destination; hut upon arrival the oonduct
of the driver again displeased ber, and she
trnok him with her umbrella that Insepara
ble companion of unprotected females.
Her relation of the case was interlarded
with Saxon adjectives, all used in the superla
tive degree, and she concluded ber argument
by saying that she had been so often insulted
by omnibus drivers that she had determined to
submit no longer. She had always met with
respeot from ner equals, and had never been
treated rudely by a gentleman. She oalled
for the watch, had the sooundrel arrested, and,
although aware that the Polioe Court was re
garded as an unfit plaoe for any decent wo
man, she appeared there to demand justice,
and, for this purpose, thought any irfy might
enter any Court throughout this wide-spread
She pleaded her case so well, and with ges
tures so Impressive, as to cause quite a sensa
tion In a court unused to eloqnenoe and rhe
toric, and took her seat, to await tbe deolsion
of Judge Lowe, with the air of a person who
had accomplished the remarkable feat of
breaking down the banters sooiety has thrown
about the sex, and established the principle
that a woman might, if she ohoose, be her
own lawyer.
Some testimony was offered by the defense,
whioh she several times interrupted by ques
tions ana appeals, evinotng mat sue naa
studied In an excellent school, and expressed
herself highly gratified when the court fined
the unlucky driver $2 and cost.
Sbbbivp'b Sjles or Bsal Estatb. The
Sheriff's Sales of Real Estate, yesterday
morning, were largely attended, hut the bid
ding was not remarkably spirited. Tbe total
value of the property offered, whloh was
divided into lota, was about $160,000, but of
all this amount only four pieces were sold, as

Polios Cotit. Judge Lowe examined
twenty-three cases yesterday morning at the
Police Court, but tbe more important were
eontinued, while the remainder were almost
wholly without interest.
A couple of fellows, named Jacob Hahnand
John Scott, a night or two ago, were lounging
about a grocery on the corner of Columbia
and Smith-streets, and grossly Insulted a fe
male, who was making some purchases, for
which they were forcibly ejected from the
nremises. One of them drew a knife, and
threatened to use it upon the grocer, but at
lane-th thev departed. Night before last they
returned to the house, and were guilty of some
very disorderly oonauci, tor which tuoy were
arrested and oonnoed in tne ttation-nouse

DtltiR Pkiam or tbs Wounded Ma.
Coroner Carey was sailed upon, yesterday
morning; to hold an Inquest oa tha body of
John tiibbons, who was stabbed during s quar
rel with David Boyd, in Water street, on Sat
urday last, an account of whloh was published
in our issue of Monday. Tbe clreomstanees,
as developed by the evidence elicited, by the
Coroner's Jury, were similar to that we have
already published, differing, We believe, only
in the following particulars 1
It appesra that the men reside in different,
but adjoining rooms of the house, No. 64
Water-street, and oa Saturday had attended a
funeral, whioh, with a eettaio olasfl.ls synonl
mous with saying they were intoxioated. After
they returned the wife of Gibbons went into
the room occupied by Buyd and his wife, when
Q. became angry and kicked the door nntil
he broke out one of tbe panels and turned over
a small moveable cupboard.
This annoyed B., and they quarreled, where
upon they came to blows, and during the
tntltt O. was stabbed, the knife penetrating
the right lung. The wound was not neces
sarily fatal, and It is quite probable that if the
wounded man had received proper medical
treatment he would have recovered.
The, deceased was about thirty-five years of
age, and leaves a wife and three children.
The locality in which he resided is one of the
Worst in IL; end has often been the
scene of bloodshed sometimes Of murder.
Half a dozen families, In tome instances, oc
cupy two ot three rooms, and of course quar
rels and! broken heads are no novelty.
The jury rendered a verdict to the effect,
that Gibbons came to fata death by a wound
produced by a knife in the hands of David
Boyd; who is now awaiting an examination
before Judge Lowe. The fatal termination of
the quarrnl, will probably hasten tne prelim
inary trial whioh has heretofore been con
tinued from day to day because of the con
dition cf the wounded man.
several times heard it whispered that outrages
upon prisoners were dally committed at the
jailor this county, but presumed they were
exaggerated and grew from the manner in
which the inmates amused themselves, and
were without barm either real or intended.
Some developments took place yesterday,
however, that would seem sufficient to dispel
any such theme, and furnish sufficient ground
for the establishment of a new discipline.
Day before yesterday. David Burke and
Henry Goldsmith were committed to Jail to
await a further examination in default of bail
to tbe amount of $860 each. When they en
tered the yard they were met by some prison
ers, who demanded what they oalled their en
trance fee, fifty oenta each, which they justly
refused to pay. They were then oompolled
to receive sixty lashes each, whioh wer'u ac
cording to the statement of the men, well
laid on.
Warrants were Issued for the parties con
cerned in this disgraceful transaction, sud as
many of them as ara known will appear this
morning before the Po'ice Court. There in
certainly something radically wrong in the
management of our county jail, and it would
be well enough to have the fault attached to
those who are either directly or indirectly the
oause of it. Such transactions as this would
never occur in a well-regulated prison, and
should not have transpired here.
