"Tnvt nt as' ml" A very salty case
"a.aault and battery" waa before the Probate
Court yesterday evening, in which two wo
men were the parties. The plaintiff In the
cause, a good looking woman, with keen black
eye, well dressed, and jewela on her fingers,
stated that she waa unable to procure counsel,
and the Court assigned for her defence, Josiah
Lovell, E.q. The prosecutrix, a smsll, spunky
looking Woman, slated thst the defendsnt hsd
first slandered her, and then when she went to
ascertain what she meant by it, she got her
hair pulled, face and neck scratched, was
knocked down in the mud, hsd her face daubed
with it, and, indeed, her entire parson wss
smeared over I Thia outrage was stib.tsnlialed
by aeveral witnesses, one of whom interfered,
and she wa permitted to go home, one of the
worst drabbled women we ever heard of. The
defence eucceeded in showing that it was s "wo
man quarrel," merely ; that the prosecutrix
gave provocation ; that she provoked a breach
of the peace. The testimony which was of
fish market flavor, waa listened to by a large
crowd ; and the matter was finally settled by
jury, who decided that the prosecution
failed to make out a case.
Ukkm or A yKBiofa I'irk. In Greenville
yesterday morning, a tire was discovered in
room in the second story of the "People's
Drug Store," owned by Mr. tfohiuidt. The
alarm being given immediately, the lire was
extinguished in a short time. Tlit facts as
near a we could glean them are these: In
the morning early a clerk in the Drug Store
kindled a very Urge fire in the fire place
below, and the soot, which had largely accu
mulated, took fire. A large flue having been
left open in the second story, tho burning
moss fell through upon some combustible
meterialr, and the flame were communica
ted to some barrel of aloohol and other spir
its; and when discovered, the whole room
was in a blaze. The fire had burned off sev
eral hoops from the barrels, and was so near
the spirits that a few moments would have
sufficed to put the whole thing in an unci
tinguishable blase I Had this occurred, the
building and the entire block, the best in
our neighboring city consisting of the drug
store, Poet Office, office of the Darke County
Democrat, a large and splendid Hall, Law

Chicago Companies, had taken a deep inter

A comparison of ihe gross income for the
past wilh lliat of the present year will show
an increase of $-,011! G5. The expenses
have, in the same time, been reduced, show
ing a gain in the net income of $.13,778 75.
rsolhing has been charged to Construction
Account during the year. The amount ex-
jiendcd for furnishing additional depot And
other facilities fur business, is embraced in
exensea of tran-qiortation.
1 he report of the Secretary also shows
that the floating debt of the Company Iibr
been reduced to $.4,075, consisting of Hills
Payable due 1st ol duly next, with cash on
hand to meet the same at maturity; and that
the present assets exceed the remaining lia
bilities in the sum of $83,208 3, About
one-half of the assets, however, will not be
available before the ensuing fall and spring.
Cndcr those circumstances, the Hoard have
deemed it prudent at this time to pass the
Within the ensuing six months they will
be able to resume the payment of regular
dividends, and have a surplus sufficient, it is
believed, to guard against any future failure.
I he report made to the stockholders, at
their semi-annual meeting in October last,
showed that the company had invested, in
depreciated railroad slocks and bonds of con
necting roads, the sum of SdOo.OTU 10. In

Uioir last annual meeting, the undivided net
earning to March Hist, 1800, have been
credited to this and other bad and doubtful
accounts, thus wiping out the total amount
of suWriptiou to connecting roads, and
bringing the stock or this comutny to par on
their books; after deducting sutlicient of the
assets to pay all outstanding liabilities.
The balance remaining to th debit of stocks
and bonds is $.8,747 0, which is estimated
to be worth that sum, and cunsi.it of Dayton

books worth less to it than its cost.
The road has been oiieratod with its usual
regularity and freedom from accidents. No
passenger has been injured, or property des
troyed. The track and machinery hav been
kept in good repair, and the otticers and men
employed in th various department con
nected with the service, have been vigilant
in the performance of their several duties.
Two serious accidents hare occurred at
road croemngt, by which lour persons, highly
esteemed in community, hav been killed.

The Junction Indianapolis road, which
connect with our road at Hamilton, will be
opened for business to Oxluid during th
present month; and we are assured that bv
the first of Octnlsr next the Dayton and
Micnigan road will be completed to Toledo.
From these two connections we mny ex
pect a considerable increase ofluisiness.
The Board take occasion to coneratiilale
the stockholder on the improved condition of
tne company's finances, as well as for the
improved prospect of an increaieof business
from connecting roads.
For a detailed statement of the finances of
