The Adventures of a Missing Girl.
The Lnqiirer plVWcdnesdAy con-
tamed a romanlia storv of the advrn-
t nes of a losijivft which seemed more
like the Bdventutes ol Dr. Hamblen in
earth of her than her own. It will
be well lor the public to see the 'true
vers ion of the story.
borne weeks ago this girl visited one
of the clergjnieu on Sycamore street,
and inlormed him that she was
child ol a Catholic mother and a Prot
estant father, that the lather had nevet
allowed her to attend Catholic worsh
ip, nor to receive any instructions be
yond those her mother had covertly
imparted to her, that her lather was
now dead, and, being tre, she desired
to become what her mother was a
Catholic.
The tlerg) man cave Iter a catechism,
desired her to bliidy it well, and then
come back. She took it; and a week
ngo last Sunday came back to him, ex
hibiting a competent knowledge ol
Christian doctrine, but say ing that her
mistress had taken tier catechism aw ay
irom her, ana wistieu to lone her to go
to another Church, which bhe had re
fused to do, giving the lady to under
stand that she was going to the Catho
lic Church. Ihe clergyman baptized
her, and told her to go -back to Iter
mistress and live with her. . Site went
back, but shortly aiterward returned.
baying she could not live there any
more. He promised to try and procure
her a situation in sunie other, family,
and in the mean time requested ihe
Superintendent ol the Orphan As lum
to allow her to board. Alter she had
been at the Asylum a lew dajsf jhe
Sister Superior told her that she could
not be allowed1 to stay "any longer, un
less she would inlorn; her lormer mis
tress of it. She started to do so, in
company with one of the m an-servants
ol St. John s Hospital, entreating him
all the way tot to allow her to be kept
there.
On her arrival at the door of Dr,
Hamblen's house, on Fourth st.,some
disputing took place between herself
and her mutre?, and at last she was
pulled into the hall forcibly, and
the
door was closed.
The "lively scene" between Mr.
Hamblen and the "elderly lady" is
purely imaginary. No one was injN.
company with the girl when she went
to nis house but a servant w Uo went
tliere will) hr-ras he would lute gone
on any other errand; aivJ wneu he saw
the door closed on linn he went home.
The young girl is rem rkably intellU
gent, and does not exhibit any signs
of having been "tampered with," but
seems to be Irritated extremely at not
being allowed to follow her inclina
tioiis towards the religion of her moth
er. Such are the particulars ot this
story, as we have learned inem Irom
tlie priest on Sycamore st., the Super-
intenuem oi tue urpnarj asylum, ana
the servant who accompanied the girl
on her visit to Mr. Hamblen's house.

Bill Poole His Cuabctek a "Go ser."
During ihe trial ot Daker for the mur
derof Bill Poole, which is not yet con
eluded, the character of Poole has
necessarily been developed. It is
uo longer regarded throuuh the Iu
minous haze of glory anid which be was
burred, with th national flue about
him, but ihe facts in the case come oui
and it appears that he was one of the
rhefiegrah"vnwt -enerowr of men -
i drunken, quarrelsome, thoroughly bru
tal bully. The N. Y. Post says:
"Quite a number of witnesses testified
io the brutality and qua rrelsome dispo
sition of Poole, while Raker was de
"cubed asieaceful and inoffensive man.
