The Chicago city inspector of butter
has brought suit against a number of re
tail grocers for selling adulterated butter.
There is reason to believe that an inspector

ally guilty of selling" the unwholesome
stuff variously known as suine, butterine,
oleomargarine, etc., etc., etc.

That abominable cinder walk on ; the
west side of Washington avenue, between
Ninth and Tenth streets, has been patched
upon again with more of the same misera
ble stuff of which it was first construct
ed (?). The dozen or more persons who, in
making their way along there during rainy
nights, plunged suddenly into pools of
water above tho ankles and rose next morn
ing with a severe cold, would doubtless
pronounce it a public blessing if the coun
cil would order the little eminences re'
moved from tho walk (T), so that raft
may be flouted for tho accommodation of
the public in rainy weather; or else have
'the measly thing" fenced in.
Barton Free Press : Judge Harker ar
rived homo on Tuesday last. We are re
joiced to print the fact that his condition
is satisfactory. While it is yet unknown
to what extent the use of his arm has been
lost, it is gratifying to know that his arm
is saved, that his terrible Bufferings are over,
and that in time he will be able to assume
his duties, the Judge has passed a most
terrible ordeal. Think of cutting through
tho flesh drilling through the bones, draw
ing and tugging by the hour at tho crushed
and mangled arm, and then only a faint
conception can be had of what Judge
Harker has suffered.' His general health is
good. On Thursday he came down 1 town
and circulated for a time among his friends
He is quite cheerful and hopeful. He will
make monthly visits to Chicago for exam
ination and dressing of his wounds.
At the silver wedding of CoL and Mrs,

friends. Among these the following were
prominent : Silver and cut glass fruit dish,

County court convened yesterday with
Judge R. 8. Yocum on the bench. A negro
named Mohan was found guilty of gaming
and fined twenty dollars and costs.
Charles Raymond, who stole an over
coat from Messrs. Goldstine & Rosenwater
a few days ago and, was arrested by Chief
Myer, was found guilty of petty larceny,
fined twenty-five dollars and costs, and sen
tenced to the county jail for five days or
until the fine is paid. Tho caso of one Squire
Johnson, a negro, who is charged with
gambling, was continued. The case of
Charles White, charged with adultery; was
dismissed because of the marriage of defen
dant with the complaining witness. Ia the
case of a negro named Alex Booth, who is
also charged with adultery, a motion to
quash the indictment was made. Tho at
torneys for tho defense in the liquor case
made a motion for a new trial, claiming
that, under a decision of the supremo court,
a defendant who had given a bond, was en
titled to a continuance until the next term
of court. Tho prosecution objected to this
motion and, pending the argument upon 1
this point, court adjourned until this morn-
Owing to tho serious illness of the
wife of one of the jurors in tho Guitcau
case, and also of Mrs. Scovi lie's mother, it
is very probable that the trial of the assas
sin will bo temporarily abandoned. A
plaster cast was made of Gaiteau's head
by Clark Mills, assisted by his son, Theo
dore Mills. After some hesitation, the
assassin consented to have his beard re
moved and then allowed the cast to be
made. After the operation Gulteau ex
pressed himself highly gratified with the
result. A crank named Cloff called at the
Scovillo residence Saturday night and ' in
formed tho servant that he had come there
to protect Mr. Scovillo. He was admitted
to the parlor and proceeded to write a lot
tor.on a piece of brown paper to Secretary
Frolinghuysen; asking for the appointment
of a friend to the consulship at Stuttgardt,
where he might have the advantage of
musical education. He then told the ser
vant that he wanted to know the premises
thoroughly and that no alarm should be
given, as if a noise was hoard in the house
during ; the night be should terminate his
visit. , He drew from hit bosom a large
silver probe, with which he proposed to
defend Mr. Scovillo. He was arretted, i
