Issued for au insult offered to a well

of a plain drunk was preferred against
him, and be was allowed to depart alter

Sheriff' Ham Irvin and Deputy John
Sheehan made another descent on the old
'Flat Top," on Fourth street, between
Commercial and Wahiuton avenues,
early yasterday morning. This ranclie
has become famous among the'darkeysas
a place to carry on gambling on a small
scale. It is proprietored by the well
known negro Dixey,' and the principle
game is pitching "craps." The officers
captured seven; darkeys, including the
manager, "Dixy" and the "Jack of
Clubs," another noted colored gentle
man who has but recently been released
from jail, w here he was sent for stealing
a valise. The whole gang were given
quarters iu the lockup to await the con

" Large shaking by a big man this
evening at corner of 7th street and Com
mercial avenue Col.' lien iViley," was
the language iu which a colored individ
ual informed the poople on Thursday
evening that the battle-scarred veteran,
Ben. Wiley, was in tho city and would
address the people upon the issues ot the
day. We wandered dow n to the corner
of .Seventh street Hbout8o'elocVnd there
found a small crowd (mostly Democrats),
waiting for the curtain to rise. Shortly
after our arrival came Col. McKeaig.
wh speedily had a box placed Iu posi
tion for the speaker. In the meantime
the gallant colonel arrived and sought
refuge in McXulty's hardware store.
We meandered (good word), in that di
rection ourselves, anxious to see the
chieftain before the battle. We found
him surrounded by three Republi
cans, who were using all
the persuasive power possible
to g;t hitn to speak. But it seemed to
be Ben's "off night.'' He told them he
did not come down to address the public,
but especially to speak to the "Hazen
weeler" club. He was not prepared to
come before the public until he had made
an explanation to the "boys." "But,"
aid a prominent Republican, "you must
say something; the people are here, ex
pecting you to speak, and It will hurt us
like the devil if you don't." An insur
ance man patted him on the back and
said: "Come, colonel, come." A saw
mill man took him by the arm and said :
"Come, Ben, do." But Ben could not
see it that way. "Tom-h him up with a
little turpentine," said an outstander.
But nothing seemed to effect Ben's moral
turpitude, (turpitude is surely a good
word). No enlhusiam could be
aroused among the "truly loil."
Scott was absent; Jim Orange was
kalsomining the city jail ; Crazy Horse
Shaffer was scarce ; and, even the fiery
Fisher, was somew here brooding over
his fate in not lieiug able to continue
bis bankrupt sale. So, you see, all the
leading lights were absent, except the
light of a lard oil lantern, which Mc
Xulty loaned them. It was full 9 o'clock
before the colonel could be induced to
come out of his bole ; and, J when
lie did, he walked up to the stand like a
man going to Im hung. He laid his hat
on the box, aud, in the courso of live
tnhiutes' deathly stillness, ' gathered up
courage enough to say a few words which
fell like a death-sentence upon
the disappointed lb-publicans who came
expecting to hear an eloquent oration
from the gif ted repudiator. He excused
himself upon the pitta that he came down
to address the "Hazen weeler club ;" and,
until he explained to them the charges
that had been brought agaiust him as a
citizen and a soldier, he did. not desire to
(using his ow n words), "make a full
speech." And thus he threw a wet blan
ket on the expectations of the Republi
cans and retired. And thus ended one ot
the greatest lizzies the biggest lailure
over the greatest old humbug that ever
presented himsel! before an intelligent
people:' !;i : J ;

Lincoln Hatter Powder is an entirely
harmless article inado Irom a celebrated
English recipe, and now in daily use by
niuuy of the most noted farmers iu tbe
butter counties around Philadelphia.
In hot weather this Powder makes butter
much lirmer and sweeter thun it usually is,
and keeps it from turning rancid. It also
removes the strong flavor of turnips, garlic,
weeds, cru stiilks, cot'on seed, etc.; and
the increased yi Id of butter much more
than Julys the trilling expense of usiii it.
