CINCINNATI, April 7.
Thia afternoon just after the
close of the polls in the pre
cinct Eiuhth (old Fourth)
ward, in John Gibbon's saloon
oa Fourth Street, about a
square distant from the polls,
a fight commenced between
two men. Officer John Glea
son, of the city police, went
into the saloon and tried to
quell the disturbance. A great
crowd followed, tiling the
room, and the fight became
confused. Gleasou firm! bis

in the right breast. Leonard
is thought to be dying. Six
surgeons attend Iiiru. It is
said he was trying to keep the
crowd off the fficer.

The a1 tending surgeons fear lie

and beat him down, and that
on rising he drew his pistol
and fired. He did not seem to
know of aiming at any panic

down by the crowd and beaten,
but not severely hurt. The

entertainment at a late fashion

The parlies of the first part
were L. B. Gregg, a promineni

all of Milwaukee. Ptrenls con
senting, minister present, and
gay wedding party assembled
in the house of the bride's lath
er. A ion of Mr. Sherman, and
brother of the bride, did not
consent. lie tried 16 get bis
father to forbid the marriage,
but the father was resolute,
cold hearted, and wanted lo
give his daughter away to the
man she loved and he respect
ed. Young Sherman made
some Violent threats, and final
ly rushed into the parlor iu the
midst ol the company, and ten
derly aimed a shotgun at bis
father's head. A gentleman
present displaced the aim just
in lime, and the charge was
salely deposited in a mirror,
riuaslniig it all io pieces, and
making a great deal of iioise
and contusion aud fright. The
young in in then produced a
revolver, but before he could
use it he was caught and taken
