The Firr Yesterday at Noon. A firs broke
yeaterday about noon, in the fourth story of

P. Langdon, and occupied by Nickle A Bioler as

he bouse and the goods, aud the loss, which is
than $500, Is fully covered by insurance. The

is ths floor upon which it originated was unoccu

it In any other way.

Yesterday morning a couple of persons who
leuted themselves as slaters of Joseph Baxter, tho
low who committed the robbery on Fifth street,
night or two ago, went to the Kintb-streot Station'
houae and asked permission to soe him, which
granted, aftor which they sent the officer in
to get him some cofieo. While he was absent,
fij soma means found the keys, unlocked the

was concerned in tbe late Main street forgery
and anothor prisoner, charged with tbe same
named Conant. The latter persons hare been
taken and returned to their cells, but Baxter has
since been heard from. We sincerely hope that
tice may overtake both him and his liberators.
Since tbe above was written wo bave learned

Astronomical. One of our city cotemnoraries
cords the humiliating fact that though the adjourned
meeting of the Astronomical Society was advertised
lu several of tbe papora to take place on Wednes
day, at tbe Merchant' Exchange, at noon,
the President and Mr. Observer were In
dance at Ibe propor hour. Theao gontlomen,
if ter waiting but, alas! lu vain in expectation
of a third person to arrivo, began at last to
to each other, in lachrymose words, the heartles
apathy of their fellow members of the Cincinnati
ieatialXommuully. hen somewhat tired of
occupation, tbe two gentlemen wisely concluded
that it would be prudent fur them to
to a more convenient season, We should
to whisper a " short little " query into the ear
President, and it Is this, "Did you advertise the
ing in the Dally Preaa?" If ths answer be lu
negative, then that negleot of yours, Mr. President,
Is sufficient to account fur the absence of the

National Tbiatir. At this popular plac of
amusement, M'llo Louise Wtlla la sllll tho reigning
star. Her daring feats on horseback, In connection
Ith her gracefulness and smillna face, draw flue
houses, to apeak from a financial point of view, and
please them too. To-night will be enaoted "Jack
Sheppard," M'lle Wells appearing as the hero In all
his daring exploits and "hair-breadth 'scapes." The
beautiful drama of "The French Spy" will conclude
the performance, with tho fair Louise In the principal
Msi.odzon naiL. Madame Bosco, with her won
derful tricks, surprising transformations, and lavish
distribution of jewelry, still attracts crowds to the
Melodeon Hall. The gift feature of the performance
is a bona fide affair, and Is regarded with quite as
much interest as the changing of a handkerchief Into
a gold watch, or a potato into a live cat. There will
be another performance this evening.
Wood's Theater. Notwithstanding the exceed.
Ingly disagreeable state of the weather Inst night,
the Florences drew quite a fair house to this eatab
llshment. Mrs. Florence, with her deep contralto
voice, sings her songs sweetly, and In every thing she
undertakes pleases her audiences. She Is a decided
favorite, and will remain such so long as representa
tions of Tankoe character continue to amuse or In
terest any. To-night Mr. Florence, with his rich
brogue, will appear as Paddy, the Piper, and as Barney
O'Connor, two characters to which his powers are
admirably adopted. As this Is their last appearance
but one previous to their departure for Europe, and,
moreover, nas been set apart as the benefit or Mrs.
Florence, we trust bar friends will give her a bumper
at parting which will be a pleasant memory during
the whole time of her absence. Lot tho house be
flllod to ropletlon.
Bold Attempt to Obtain Goods t False Pre.
tenses. A young man of good address and gonteel
appearance, day before yesterday, went to the Hard
ware establishment of Tyler Davldaon Co., on Main
atreet, below Fourth, and ordered about one hun
dred and fifty dollars' worth of files, which he stated
were for Booth 4; Co., who are also Hardware mer
chants, and do business at the corner of Pearl and
Walnut streets. He then loft the store and sent a
dray for the goods; but, In tho mean time, an border
came by one of the attaches of ths establishment of
the last-named firm fur some teeth of a horticultural
machine of some kind, when inquiry was made In
regard to the files, and a boy sent to follow the dray,
which waa a strange one, to its destination. The
drayman, however, by aome meana, became aware
that be was followed, and, fearing he would be de
tected, drove to the establishment of Booth Co.,
as he had been directed. The truth then became ap
parent that tbla young man had made a bold attempt
to obtain a lot of goods by false representations,
which would havs been succeaeful but for the circum
stance, which no one could havefnreeeen, that Booth
A Co. really needed some articles from the firm
from whom ho, in their name, bad made his pro
tended purchases. So well-laid a scheme for swind
ling has not come to our knowledge for some time,
and the person who attempted to perpetrate it has
certainly a talent which might make him respected
If he wonld employ It In the performance of good
deeds. He has escaped, thus far, the vigilance of the
Police Cocbt. Offenders seem to be scarce, and the
business before this Court seems to be falling off. A
few cases of Importance were called yesterday, and
were disposed of In quite a short session.
A German, who had been found lying at the corner
of Fourth and Elm streets asleep, and In a bestial
state of Intoxication, but whose nerves he avowed
could not sustain the shock of seeing his name in
connection with tho affair In the newspapers, com
plained that he had had his pocket picked of a porte-
monnaie containing fifteen dollars in money, and some
valuable papers; waa fined Si and costs.

Another Camfhene Lamp Explosion. Another
one of those sad occurrences, which will continue,
we presume, until the people cease to use campheno,
took place on Wednesday evening, at a houaeoo Race
street, near Liberty. A young girl named Holen Bell,
who resides with her uncle at the place above named,
was sitting at a table upon which a servant-girl
named Margaret Brady was engaged in filling
camphene lamp. By some meaua the fluid took fire,
and, in the consternation thla caused, was spilled
upon the young lady, while the flames, Doing speedily
communicated to her dress and limbs, burnt
severely about the lower part of the body and abdo
men. Margaret, the servant, waa more seriously In
jured than the other, for her wounds are about
neck, arms, breast and Lace, and will not only confine
her for a long time to her bed, but will also, in
probability, di-figure her for life. Both the victims
of this exceedingly soil affair will recover, but
are injured so badly that it will poison all the pleasures
of their after lives.

Man Shot in a Baonio. About nine o'clock
night, in a bagnio on Richmond atreet, a man

her HriBBAND. A woman named Elizabeth Scheb
bclo, w ife of a tcamator who resides near Cummins
vllle, was accidentally shot, while preparing to re
tire, nbont nine o'clock on Wednesday tight; and
although ths wound will not prove fatal, 1'. la quite
painful, aud wIU confine her lo her room for aome
tima. She was, ws learn, about stepping into bed,
when a pistol, heavily loaded, which her husband
waa in the act of hanging upon a nail In tbe wall,
was discharged, th ball entering her breast and In.
flit ting a frightful wound. The only reason why tbe
shot did not prove immediately fatal was the fact
that it entered the mammao diagonally. She has
been married, ws believe, but a short time, and what
makes ths circumstance still more painful, and adds
new pane to those she already snffers from the
wound, 'he is enceinte, aud expected In a short time
to become a mother.
Tin Fire at the Cobneb or Court and Ltn
Streets. The loss of Messrs. Simmons 4 Rnost, ths
proprietors of the planing-mlll which was destroyed

By thia aad alTalr three families Instead of fifteen,

homes. It was one of tho most destructive fires
which has occurred in our city for some time, and
this was entirely in consequence of the inflammable
material with which the buildings wore occupied.
SciciDE or A Cincinnati an. A man named Eli
jah Wagner, who formerly resided in Cincinnati, but
who for some time back has been switch-tender at
Morrow, In ths employ of the Little Miami Railroad
Company, committed suicide by hanging hlrasalf at

churches, or three times in the same church, as a
confession of his belief In the Trinity. The altars in
tbe Cathedral and different churches of the oily were

The Concert Last Niohc The concort for the
benefit of the Mission Schools, at Smith A Nijon's
Hall laat night, was hardly so well attended as the
attraction merited. This could not have been from
a lack of Interest in the cause which the concert was
given to benefit, but was, no doubt, brought about
the lagoon-llke streets and weeping skies which
throughout tho entire day almost disgusted pedes
trians. Still the concert passed off satisfactorily, and
those who heard It will, for a long time, have a mem
ory which will be a pleasure as often as it will recur.

Miss Ridgeley Sworn—The. Prosecution
Washington, April 21. The usual crowd is
In attendance this morning.
Among tbe letters received by the counsel,
ono was road thie morning by Mr. Brady, from
a lady signing herself, in Greok characters,
"Olymphia Aiken," nnd desoribing herself e
one of the order of frailty one of the simple
waiters for the wave of some masculine pocket
handkerchief. The letter is dated from West
Randolph, Vormont, and asks the counsels' at
tention to the following extract from "White
"I'd have bo wasps round my honey; if my
wife took a lover, I would not locture the wo
man. What's the use? I'd kill the man, then
and there; I'd kill him in-doori or ont; I'd
kill him aa I would kill a snake. If she took
another, I'd send him after the first, and so on
till one killod me."
Before rtrooeoding to business, the Judge
said that there was a letter on his desk direoted
to one of the jurors, Mr. Wilson, in oare of tbe
Judge. It bore the Aew York post-mark. He
supposed there wag no objection to its being
bunded to tbe juror.
Assent waa given on both sidos, and tbe let
ter was handed over. After a few momenta
the letter was returned to the Judge, who said
to the counsel: "This lottor is handed baok by
the juror. lie knows nothing about it or the
writer. It proceeds from the worst ot motives
it is an impertinent, improper and unwarranted
interference with the Courts ot justice.
The letter wag handed down and examined
bv the counsel
Mr. Brady remarked that tbe manuscript
was similar to that of tbe anonymous letters to
Sickles. Both letters were examined together.
and the counsel agreed ns to the similarity of
handwriting in both letters.

that the author of that letter can not be known

were apparently set on foot to and out the au
Mr. Bradv satd that the proposition mad
vesterday br the government to the counse
of Mr. Sickles to admit the confession of Mrs.
Sickles as evidence, ia rejected by the defense.
Tbe District Attorney proposed to examine
Francis Doyle, to explain how and under what
circumstances certain papers, testified to by
Miller and Mr. Pendleton, were found.
Mr. Brady objected, urging that this
not rebutting evidence.
The Coroner was introdueed ana askea

nected with the person of Key, and which

Various eentlemen who were in tbe
House at the time that Key's body was brought
there, including this witness, were examined,
and your honor will remember bow diligently
and scrupulously we endeavored, but tailed,
to discover any other articles man tnosc
which tbe Coroner produced. We never heard
of those papers until they were produeed on
stand. It has been shown by Mr. fendleton
that tho prosecution knew of these facts almost,
immediately after they eame into his hands,
nnd that ho communicated them to Mr. Car
Mr. Ould It was not communicated to
prosecution that these papers were at any
found on the person of Key. We now propose
to show the oiroumstAncen under which

Mr. Phillips argued against the line of
amination proposed. There never would
an end to tbe trial it suou a course was ted.
Mr. OuIJ There was no eviuenoe offered
the United States as to the existence of
papers. Tbe circumstances were introduced
Mr. Brad; remarked that Mr. Pendleton
terday repudiated the idea that be had
himself to tho ooncealmentof any kind of
timony. The fact was, that Mr. Pendleton

Tbe Court took the original and tbe transla

Mr. Brady was willing that the original

The defence do net wish to hava it

The Court finally ruled tl'.r.t the letter
Polioeman Dow was called and testified

tnough apparently suffering internally ; I
always round him calm; I bad never seen
him before in any diffioulty; the policemen said
mat mey were afraid or a mob, and that tome
one might shoot Mr. Sickles.

Sickles met Mr. Walker and said to him, a
thonsand thanks, uy dear friend, for calling to
see me under such circumstances. He then
threw himself on tbe sofa and wept; he spoke
of dishonor to his honse and to his child; his
grief lasted about lire minutes; it was a hearty
ory, and he could be beard in his room.

Mr. Ould here sai'l that the proseontlon
wished to olose thia branch of tbe case, but one

might be allowed to postpone it until to-morrow.
The defense agreed to this, and the Court
