CITY I HTBLLI U B N C JB. PROBABLE MURDER. Lieutenant Flaherty, of the Fifth District, Shot Yesterday Afternoon. Lieutenant Flahertj', one of the best officers of the Philadelphia police force, was shot by a ruf fian named James Monaghan, at Tenth and Spruce streets, yesterday afternoon, about four o clock. A party of young men, who are known to residents of the Eighth ward, and feared by many of them, made an attack upon a colored man, and were severely beating him, when Policeman Thompson and another officer of the Fifth district came up and interfered, taking into custody two of the rioters. Their friends then attempted to rescue them, and fearing that they would not be able tore tain their prisoners, word was sent to Lieu tenant Flaherty, who was at his home, on the southeast corner of Eleventh and Locust streets. Hurrying around to Spruce street he found that a crowd was gathering, and that it would be necessary to take prompt steps to get the pris oners to the station. Seizing one of the men who was foremost in the attempted rescue, he was taking him out Spruce street, when he en countered James Monaghan, who encouraged the rioters in resisting the Lieutenant. Mona ghan was ordered away, but instead of going used insulting words to the oflicer. Thereupon Lieutenant Flaherty caught hold of him, and a struggle ensued, during which Monaghan drew a pistol, and the oflicer got his revolver out also. Almost instantly Monaghan placed the muzzle of the weapon against the Lieutenant's breast, and fired three shots in rapid succession. Two of the balls struck a rib and passed around to the back under the skin, causing only slight wounds, so close together, though, as to make but one visible wound. The third ball passed into the body a little lower down, and pene trated the bowels. Monaghan at once broke away and ran down Spruce street. The Lieu tenant, though suffering from his wounds, fired at him as he ran, and one of the other ofllcers also. That he was wounded was evi dent, from the fact that blood was seen running down the back of his neck. He, however, made his escape, and was last seen running through Independence Square. The Lieutenant was assisted to his home and Professor Gross summoned. Tbe wound in the abdomen was pronounced to be of a very seiloas nature. His recovery is exceedingly doubtful. Lieutenant Flaherty is one of the most brave, gentlemanly, and intelligent ofllcers of the city, and thoroughly conscientious in the discharge of his duties. That he was a terror to the roughs of the Fifth district is well known. The man Monaghan who shot the Lieutenant is the one who in AuguBt, 1865, murdered James Moore at a delegate election. The Lieutenant married the widow of Moore, and this fact no doubt had made bad feeling between the parties. Monaghan also shot a man in a saloon on Ninth street some months ago. He is a son of Harry Monaghan, who keeps a tavern on Walnut street, near Eighth, and is Democratic nominee for assessor of the Eighth ward. LATER. This morning Lieutenant Flaherty was easier, and the physicians and his friends are hopeful. There are in his body three bullets, two ef which entered at the same spot, on the left side, and, following along a rib, lodged against the spine. The third ball is lodged in tbe abdomen. This is the dangerous wound. If the intestine is cut, tbe injury will In all likelihood prove fatal. If not, the physicians declared that the brave Lieutenant will be up in five wiks. To determine this important question, four or five days will be tequlred. No effort has as yet been made to cut out the bullets. All last night the detectives and police were searching for the desperado Monaghan, a villainous, blood thirsty wretch, who long ago merited a death on the gallows. It is to be seen now whether justice will be meted out to this worst of all Democratic roughs. ; A. DENOUEMBST. This morning the Pinkerton Detective Agency in this city received a letter which exculpates Seott, who has been the cause of so much ex citement, from the murder of the banker Ilertz ler. Iris in answer to a letter of inquiry ad dressed to the Warden of the Joliet Prison, Illinois, asking the date of the escape of Scott from that institution, and runs thus: "Thomas SooU, alias John Scott, alias Riley, Mcaped from Joliet 1'nson on the Sloth of Ootober, lw7. We hae a man with ths neesary pauen now on his way to Spring. tcld, Ohio, to bring him back." . The murder in question was committed on the 10th of October, 18U7. When Lieutenant Fla herty, after a terrible tussle arrested Scott, on Locust street, the evidence against him was of the strongest nature, and was uncontradicted up to the receipt of the surprising letter. Taking this letter to be true, we are compelled to ex press our astonishment thai 8cott did not indi cate his innocence of this crime before. He lay many months in tbe jail of the town where the crime was committed. Wiiy did he undergo this incarceration when, by informing his counsel of the time of bis escape, the strongest kind of defense an alibi might have been proved, and he would have been released? And what object bad he in escaping from that jail, when upon the production of this incontro vertible evidence he would have been acquitted? Taking these questions into consideration, it looks as though there is a mistake in the dates in this answer of the Warden of Joliet PrUon. It it irreconcilable with the facts in the casa. Instantly Killed The Coroner has been notified to hold an inquest in the case of An drew Kibble, aged 25 years, who fell into tbe bold of a vessel at Port Richmond this morning, and was instantly killed. He resided ou Edge mont street, above Allegheny avenue. Kri Over. At 6-30 o'clock this morning Patrick Keunedy, aged 28 years, and living at No. b05 Inquirer street, was badly injured by a coal cart running over bim on Ninth street, near iirard avenue. He was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital. The Caroline The yacht Caroline, 17 feet locg, won tbe first prize in the Cooper's Poiut Yacht Club regatu, beating R. 8. Wilklns' yacht, the II. Clay Funk, 33 minutes from Cooper' l'oint to Chester buoy and return. The Carole is a Philadelphia boat. . XEAT. A New Dodge by a Fruitful II windier. Yesterday afternoon . a swindle was neatly perpetrated in West Philadelphia. At the corner of Thirty-third and Market streets a merchant does business. Bis residence is on Forty-second street, near Klngsesslng avenue. He is a staunch Republican, and this fact has an important bearing In the case. Yesterday a suave swindler called npon bis wife, when the merchant was away, and represented to her that her husband had assaulted a man, had been arrested and taken before a Democratic alderman, who wag bitterly opposed to him, and tbat unless $30 was forthcoming be would be sent to prison. To gel this 130 the merchant had commissioned his friend (!) tbe swindler to call npon his wife. The lady, as may well be imagined, became greatly excited with fear when this story was told her, and ran np stairs to get all tbe ready money she had, which was f 15. This she gave to the man, and told her son, a lad, to go with the gentleman to his aunt's on Sansom street, who would give the balance of the monev needed. This they did, and the annt gave f 30. This was given to the swindler also. The latter and the lad then pro ceeded towards the Alderman's office. When about half way the swindler exclaimed: "Oh dear 1 there is an important letter In the pocket of a coat of your father's which he told me hung in tbe storeroom on the second floor, and be wants it. Do you run back and get It, and I will hasten forward and keep your father out of prison." The lad ran back, and when he disappeared the swindler smiled a sardonic smile, cut through some by-streets, and that was the last seen of him or the money. The merchant was rather disconcerted npon return ing from his store and hearing of the adven ture. ; . THE POLYTECHNIC. Annual Commencement This Evening.

' Another Account of their Personal Diffi culty In a Secret Session of the . Rebel Senate. From the Columbia (Tenn.) Herald, June 18. Among the many events of personal Interest that transpired In the South during the late war, but few are of a more dramatic character, or aroused a deeper Interest among our people, than the unfortu nate personal mmcuity which took place In the Con federate btates Senate at Richmond, during ,1(8 secret session, between William L. Yancey, of Ala bama, and Mr. Benjamin H. Hill, of Georgia. Several different and conflicting versions of the affair have been given through the Southern press, but none has yet been published that accords with a statement we recently derived from a gentleman who was at the lime a Senator, and an ey e-witneas to all that trans pired on t he occasion. The difficulty had its origin in the heated political contests so common In this country prior to the breaking out of the war. It was when Yancey, with his dazzling eloquence, was 'firing the Southern heart," that a barbecue, attended by thousands, was given In one of the upper counties of Georgia. It was here that II ill and Yancey met, the one the DOld and eloquent defender of the Union, and the other the boasted champion of secession; and during the debate which ensued, words were uttered which caused an estrangement that was never afterwards reconciled. The two had met again In the Confederate Senate, both doubtless smarting under the recollection of past conflicts and entertaining no kindly feeling for each other. It was when the cause of the South was drooping and every patriot heart was .heavy with despondency and gloom that Mr. Yancey, ris ing in his place in the Senate, declared that war could no longer be carried on with any hope or suc cess unless many of the constitutional restraints and embarrassments were thrown aside, and boldly advocated a radical change In the Government, to meet tbe demands of the public and the exigencies of the hour. Upon the conclusion of Mr. Yancey's remarks, Mr. Hill promptly arose to reply. The scene was one of most Intense excitement. He deprecated the opinion advocated by Mr. Yancey, and proceeded with great severity to review his past political career, m lining back to the beginning of the times when our sectional troubles were first being agitated. He said Mr. Yancey, not satisfied with having warred upon and disrupted the old Union, was now crying out against and, endeavoring to subvert and breaic down the Confederate Government. When Mr. Hill concluded, the excitement, already at white heat, was Increased beyond anything ever before witnessed during those troublesome times. Mr. Yancey arose, and In a calm, dignified, and self poised manner peculiarly bis own, commenced bis reply. He described Mr, Hill as repeating slanders that had been uttered against him for the oast twenty years, and that all which Mr. Hill had uttered bad been said Innumerable times before by every third-rate politician in the country ; and ooutlnued by saying: "Nature had designed the Senator from Georgia as an Imitator; that he had been cast In a die, and It was vaiu to attempt to enlarge his dimen sions." Pallid with rage. Mr. Hill mounted to his feet, and seizing a heavy glass luk-stand hurled It with ail his rul.iht and power at the neaa or Air. vaucey, which, grazing bis forehead, plowed Its way to the skull, and passed on Its furious course, crushing a heavy window-facing beyond. Without turning his head, Mr. Yancey, who was at the time addressing the Speaker, continuing his speech, deliberately re marked, "It Is always the prerogative of cowards to strike front the rear." Enraged still more at this remark, Mr. 11111, gathering a cbalr, rushed upon bis antagonist, who, heedless of the attack, was con tinuing bis remarks as calmly as if nothing bad hap pened, when a number of Senators Interposing, the difficulty was ended. Mr. Yaucey's wound bled most profusely, and a scene of the utmost confusion prevailed. It bas several times been stated since Mr. Yan cey's death, that It retrulted from injuries received In this rencontre, but such is not the fact, as ho died from a disease that could in no way have been su perinduced by this cause.

TBT ASSOCIATED PRESS. Exclusively to The Evening Telearaph. Indian Outrages. Washington, June 28 The War Depart ment bas received despatches from Camp Apache. Arizona Territory, dated May 16, ply ing an account of an attack by the EfsHttesaylah band of Indians on tbe herd, killing one herder and driving off ten horses and twelve mules. Major Greene, commanding the post, immedi diately mounted all the men on the few mules and horses left, and started Lieutenant Brodie in pursuit, and also sent Captain Fuller with some infantry to follow up, in order to support Brodie if possible. r - Brodie overtook them about twelve miles from the post in the mountains. He had a fight and killed two Indians, but the number was too large for his few men, for even a portion of those he had could not keep up with him, and he was obliged to retire. One sergeant had his horse shot under him. Major Greene became very uneasy about a train between the post and Camp Goodwin, and also two wagons he had sent to meet It In order to bring In some sup plies that the garrison much needed. He there fore sent Lieutenant Brodie with fifteen men, all he could mount on mulea, to meet the train and guard it. As those Indians have been considered friendly, they approach the parties without being sus pected, hence the great danger. He knows of no course to pursue toward them but extermi nation, for after the kind treatment received he does not believe thev can again bejtrusted. He has suspended all intercourse with them. Of the two regiments he can mount only forty men, owing to scarcity of horses. i The President returned this morning, and was early at the Executive Mansion, where he Is attending to the correspondence which has accumulated during his absence. He will remain at the residence of Secretary Robeson while in Washington. The Cabinet Meeting will be held to-morrow, when all the members will probably be present. Senator Scott, of Pennsylvania, had an Inter view with the President during the forenoon. Tbe President expects to leave this city for Long Branch to-morrow.

From the Ualtimore Sun, June 27. : ' The unfortunate shooting, on Friday night, of a young girl (whose nanfo has not yet beeu ascer tained) at a point on the Philadelphia Hill road, near Chase's Station, has resulted In the arrest of a young man, named Joseph League, and live others, whose names are William Hughes, John A hern, Benjamin Wilson, John Wheeler, anl James Baldwin, the two latter colored. The parties were lodged in the jail of Towsoutown to a war. some action by the couuty authorities, and yesterdar a reporter of the Sun visited the aceused and elicited a statement of tbe ati'air from Joseph League and John Ahern, which was corroborated by each of the other parties. The parties stated that they went In , pursuit of tbe girl, thinking that she was a man dressed In women's clothing who had been committing depredations in the neighbor hood. Upon arriving in sight of the crossing of the Philadelphia Kail road, Wilson said, "There Is something white," it being so dark and cloudy they could not Bee anything but a white object. At this Juncture the supposed man commenced to wear and abuse the party. ' Ahern stepped up to wards her and said, "Uold on. my good lady, let us reason tbe matter together." bhe still continued ber abuse, calling the party every kind of offensive names, and told them to look oat, that she was prolog to shoot. At thia threat the part lt beoams frightened, and League, who was stand, w on the railroad below her, at this juncture ralseuThls gun with the Intention or shooting over the supposed man's bead, but Just as he did It the party, who proved to be a woman, raised up, and two of the shot took effect, one In her forehead and the other below her eve, tbe other portion of the load passing entirely above her. The party then all lert for their homes, not supposing that any oue was Injured. After the shooting they heard tbe woman mumbling something, but they supposed she was still quarrel ing with them, and paid no further attention to her at the time. League wanted to go and see who the party was, but tbe others being frightened, they all went home with the Intention of returning early In the morning, not supposing that any damage had been done. Next morning League, Ahern, Wilson, and Baldwin went np toward the place where the shooting took place, and on the way up they met a colored man named Sandy Bias, who told them a colored woman was lying up alongside the railroad track. Tbe party went up to where the woman lay, and found several persons already gathered around. An Inquest was held by Justice Burris, the verdict of the jury being that the girl was shot by Joseph League, who, with the other parties above named, was committed to Jail at Tow sontown. An effort Is being made to have the parties re leased on ball, ana yesterday their counsel, K. R. Boarman, Esq., tiled a petition In the Circuit Court for Baltimore county, at Towaontown, for a writ or habeas corpus, with a view of bringing the aooused Into court, In order tbat witnesses may be examined, so tbat tbe court consisting of J udges Qrason, Yel lott, and Maynadler may determine the matter of admitting them to bail. The court yesterday granted tbe writ of habeas corpus, returnable to-morrow af ternoon at 8 o'clock, when the application for ball will be heard. FINANCE AND COMMERCE.

In reply to the recent surmise of the Buffalo Cow vtertial Advertiser, that the recent misunderstanding relative to Rock Island stock was brought about by the publication or an apparently official statement that a atock dividend of one hundred per cent. would soon be declared, the Tribune this morning says "the Chicago, Kock Island and Paolo Railroad la a eor poration created originally by the laws of Illinois. "It has received no authority from the Legislature of Illinois to declare a stock dividend or one hun dred per eent. or any other amount, asd the Legis lature Is prohibited by the Constitution from grant ing any such authority. These facts ought to be known to the dullest Intellect in Wall street. The . bonded debt of the Kock Island Railroad, amounting to nine million dollars, might be converted Into stock if the Legislature should authorize sucu a pro ceeding. "This debt represents thejcapital actually invested In the road, aud It would be permissible under the constitution of Illinois to pass a law authorizing an increase of the capital stock of the road, to stand In place of the debt when the latter is actually ex. tlDgulahed, but It would not be permissible to water the stock to tke extent of one dime."
