At A Klot-Mhrtr Nolcn Shot. When the votes for Receiver of Taxes were about to be called, Mr. Shoemaker arose and stated that there were discrepancies In the returns of tae Twentv-sixth ward, and he moved that Colonel Mann be admitted as counsel. An amendment was made to Jadmlt Mr. Cassldy. This was agreed to unanimously. The messenger was despatched for these gentle men, and in a few seconds there was a noise outside of the door, and on the messenger opening it, John Ahem was foremost, and clinched with him. He was then hustled out, and as he went, he cried, 'Will see no one but ju Jges get In there." Colonel Mann was then announced, and a scene of Indescribable confusion ensued. Colonel Mann ipserted his rights, and the door was opened Mann biing on the lead. A Democratic Judge arose and hoped there would be no trouble. While he was speaking the door was besieged by ooth the police and the outsiders, headed by Ahem, McMullin, R. Smith Lister, and Shay Nolen. Blackjacks were pulled nut andiieads were hammered without number. Colonel Mann suc ceeded In getting Id and the next man was Ahem, who was jammed between the doors. He had a billy In his hand and it was taken from him. In the meantime he was badly cut about the head. Finally the panels of the door were broken in and the door Itself yielded. Shay Nolan ran to the centre of the room, when a spittoon was hurled at one of the Judges. He turned and seeing Nolan near him pulled out a revolver and fired. Tho ball took eileot In the neck. The wounded man was carried oil by his friends to a carriage on Filth street and driven away. Blackjacks were flourished, and the outsiders were evidently in possession of the soom ; the police never once attempting to keep them out, notwithstanding there were enough policemen there to have taken thirty men In change. Immediately after the shooting of Nolan Mr. Cassldy arrived, and, using his lniluence, succeeded in clearing the room or all but the Judges and him self and Mr. Mann. Lieutenant Curley and a posse of officers then entered the room and, strange to relate, not one of the besiegers was taken Into cus tody, but Mr. Peterman, one of the doorkeepers, and Mr. Alexander Crawford, the judge of the Nineteenth ward, were arrested. McMullin, Lister, Ahem the latter bleeding profusely from the head and the remainder of the mob left the scene un molested. Crawford will be charged with the shooting of Nolen. When this fellow dropped some of the more prominent of the rioters were seen running among the police begging them to give him a revolver. Return Judge Selbert, during the melee, called upon the police to Interfere, but they either stood like statues or they aided and abetted the rioters. One ol them was noticed using his billy on the heads of the judges who were trying to keep the uoor shut. The room having been cleared, a motion prevailed that a short recess be taken. Some twenty minutes elapsing, the roll of Judges was called, and all were present exceptiog those re prebentlng the Nineteenth and Twenty-sixth wards, the latter having lelt the room and the former hav ing been arrested. Colonel Mann, speaking for himself and Mr. Cas sldy, then made a few remarks, in whieh he coun selled the judges as to the course they suou'.d pur sue. They had better take only those returns from the judges that bore an honest face, and that could only te In the shape of a document made np at the meeting of the judges of the elections of the various precincts In the ward. All else should be excluded. After having finished their labors In that respect, If they were deficient In any returns they could go to the Court and make a statement, on which the Court would furnish them with the next best re cord to be original, the return made to the I'rotuo notary of the Court of Common Pleas, A judge then stated that the Return Jndge of the Twenty-sixth ward had entered the room, and at his request had given blm the figures oir a sheet of foolscap, to which there were no signatures. The speaker desired to know of Colonel Mann whether such should le received. ColoneliMann, emphatically, No, sir. Another judge then stated that the Retain Judge of the Twenty-sixth ward had told him that he was drunk last night and bad lost his papers. Colonel Mann Then it is better that yon repre sent the case to the Court, who will see that Justice Is done. President English then proceeded with the read ing of the returns for Receiver of Taxes. The riotous proceedings in the room created such a noise that hundreds of men were attracted to the entrance to the main door on the State House pave ment leading to the court-room, but here the police performed their duty and prevented any effecting an entrance to the ball. The news spread rapidly, and In twenty minutes there were several thousand people on Chesnut street. The demonstration made on the judges seems to have been the result or a misunderstanding by the outsiders, as both the Democratic and Republican judges had agreed that counsel should be admitted for the purpose of giving advice as to the matter in the Twenty-sixth ward The Case In Court Soon after Crawford, the Return Judge from the Ninth ward, was locked up at the Central Police Statloa Counsel appeared before Judge Allison in the Common Pleus Court, and asked that a writ of habeas corpus Issue In the case ; that it was neces sary that the prisoner should transact his business In the Board of Return Judges. William B. Mann, Esq., then narrated the circum stances of the aiialr, and gave In detail all the facts connected with the disgraceful proceedings in the board, brought about by a set of roffiaus forcing themselves into the room. The Judge at once ordered the prisoner to be brought before him. and after listening to both sides or the story he ordered Lieutenant Thomas to re turn the prisoner to bis place on the Board of Re turn Judges, and continue him in custody until a full investigation or the case was made. He specially directed that after the meeting ol the board Crawford sboulfl be returned to the Central Police Station. Judge Allison took occcaslon to censure the police force lor not preventing the disturbance alluded to, and said It was a reproach to a city like Philadelphia that such an all air should occur so near the Court Ilouce. Lieutenant Thomas said that he had some thirty three men to protect the peace. The Judge answered that that dil not speak well for the police force. If it was thought necessary the Mayor or his oittcer In charge should have had five hundred and thirty-three men to protect the peace. Lieutenant Curley, who was present, remarked that he thought the present police force was equal to any force ever possessed by the city, and Judge Allison answered that he was not Bitting to argue that question. The papers containing the returns from the 8 nth. dlvUlou of the Sixteenth ward were sent for but could net be found. In place of them some papers were piesented which bore such evident marks of fraud upon them that the counsel tor both sides agreed that they should be thrrwn out. To this objection was made and a committee was sent to ask Instruction from the Court. To these Judge Allison said that if he were a re turn mdge and papers were presented with such gross i' arks of fraud upon them he wouM certainly roVrt rhm unless compelled by a mjudiUi'iS I; jji the court, SECOND EDITION TO-DAY'S CABLE NEWS.

Grave Charges Against a Clergyman He De clines to Answer Xheiu and Keslgns Ills Pastorate. The Troy Times of the llth lustant has the following: Some weeks since there appeared In these columns a paragraph stating that grave rumors in regard to the morals of an up-town clergy man were in circulation. The name of the person was not given, as it was hoped that he would be able to disprove the rumors. Later developments render this almest an impossi bility, and we now feel called upon to give publicity to facts that have for a considerable time been in our possession. The clergy man to whom reference was made is the Rev. J. W. Tucker, who in June last was appointed pastor of the Vail Avenue Methodist Church, lie came originally from a Southern Conference, and as his credentials were without a flaw, he was cordially welcome by his ministe rial brethren. A few weeks since he went South on a visit, bis congregation having granted him fonr weeks' leave of absence. Soon after his departure scandalous rumors began to circu late. It was whispered that a woman was living in Hudson who Lad a child, of which she said Mr. Tucker was the father. The rumor was deemed a proper subject for investigation, and the presiding elder of this district visited the lady down the river. She admitted that the child was Mr. Tucker's, but asserted that she was his wife. Further investi gation brought to light the fact that during Mr. Tucker's pastorate at Granville, Washington county, this same woman was known as his niece, and that something in their actions caused a great deal of talk among the people, which finally ended by the departure of the woman. After ascertaining these facts the eider wrote to Mr. Tucker and urged him to return and clear np these charges if he could. In response to this communication a letter was received the other day from the reverend sluner, which con tained a general denial of everything implicat ing him, but closing with the resignation of his pastorate. This is taken by the majority of his former congregation as a substantial admission of Immoral practices. Mr. Tucker is jaiii :o 1 a talented and effective preacher. FI2VANCB All 1 COJIJ1CRCC.
