Tloinb, Frederick Lamanu, 45 yearn old, of 228 West Eighteenth street, who claimed to bo an Anarchist and a bitter foe to tho militia and tho pollco, was arraigned in tho Jefferson Market Pollco Court this morning. Tho chargo against him was that whllo intoxicated last night ha created a disturbance and throw a lighted lamp at a young man named Fred erick Gchhardt. tho brother of two militia men, residing at the samo address. Thn militia uniform worn by tho two Gcb liardts steins to havo been ou oyesoro to Lniimun, who openly expressed himself with what contempt he looked upon them. Dls. liutes arose frequently botwocn Lamann and tho Gchhardt brothers regarding tho ex pressions usod by the former. At 7 o'clock last night Lamann staggered into tho house, and whllo stumbling up tho stairs cursed tho Gobhardt brothers and threatened all sorts of mischief. On tho first landing Lamann met Frederick Gobhardt tho youngest sou in tho family, and, with a curse, sprang at him. Tho boy did not weaken, but held his ground, and when Lamann camo within arm's length dealt him a blow on tho bridgo of tho noso, knocking him down. Lamann aroso to his feet, and, muttering to himself, ascended tho stairs, entered his apartment, lit his lamp, and, grasping it in his right hand, descended to tho floor occu pied by tho Gobhardts. When Gebhardt heard Lamann coming, downstairs, ho opened tho door. No soonor did he mako an appearanco than Lamann throw the lighted lamp at him. We dodged and fortunately escaped being struck. Tho lamp struck tho wall and broko in several piocos. Homo of tho tenants seolng tho oil of tho lamp burning feared tho houso was on nro and summoned two policemen, who extin guished tho flames nnd after a strugglo ar rested Lamann.

But n reac tion sot in with both Mr. nnd Mrs. Sharp ns tho excitement of tho eventful day died away, nnd thoy nre both prostrated to-dny. Dr. Alfred L. Loomis, tho family physi clan, called last evening. Ho found Mr. Sharp much depressed, nnd ordorcd him to bod, saying that ho must havo absoluto quiot nnd rost for at least a woek. Thou Sharp may begin to tako drives In Central Park. Ho will go to his farm near Homo as soon as it is safo. Ono can woll imaglno that tho good wifo of Sharp is happier to.duy than sho has beon for many months, but she is hardly less affected by tho oxciting ovents of tho past fow dayB than her husband, and sho, too, is confined to hor bed. Her physician thinks that a day or two of quiet will bring hor around to her normal, cheorful and enorgetio self again. Dr. Loomis said this morning: " Mr. Sharp has been a sick man constantly in my caro for threo years. He has n heart affection, and if ho 1b taken off his digitalis for twenty-four hours ho goes all to piocos. Warden Keating mado ovcry thing at tho' jail as pleasant for Mr. Sharp as could bo, and had ho boon able to obtain pure air thoro I do not think his con finement would have injured him much.

Tho general opinion of Bopublican statesmen is that Sonator Low will be ,'hosen Prcsidont pro tomporo of tho Senate and Fremont Colo, of Schuyler, Speaker of tho Assembly. Sonator Fnssott has no chanco of bciug eloctod President of tho Senate. Several Platt Senators havo informed the boss that thoy would not support Fassett, nnd ho will probably withdraw from tho contest. This action on his part would insure tho election ot Senator Low. Tho throo ltepubllcnn Assemblymen from Now York City Morgan of tho Seventh Dis trict, Hamilton, of the Llovonth, and Crosby, of tho Twenty-first District aro said to ho plodgod to vote for Bremont Colo for Speaker.

'A ! t - - TlIEj HA8SAYAMPA MINING EXCITEMENT ONLY A RAILROAD BOOM. Mining Kxperta Advlso Capitalist Not lo Inveat In tho New Cold 1'lrlda The miner. Only n I'ocliet that Will Not I'ny fur Development Whnt a Mine Owner from the 1'reacott Dlatrlct Kara. Tho more investigation given that alleged " grent gold bonanza," in tho HaBsayampa region, near Prescott, Ari., of which fabu lous stories have been circulated, tho moro reason is thero for tho belief that the less ono has to do with tho schemo, tho better off ho Will bo. When tho yarn first appeared, thoro seemed somo reason for a partial bolicf in its claims. Now, however, from the opinions of mining experts, as well as capitalists, who havo visited that country recently, thero can bo but a single infereuco, and that is that tho story Is told for effect, with tho view of get ting short-sighted capitalists to pluco money in the property, for tho benefit of a fow claim owners, who want to boom tho ledgo and then get rid of it. Gulling tho public is tho favorite pastimo of many corporations whoso inducements havo boon just as elaborate as aro offered in this " richest of all modern bonanzas." But gulling tho public has been carried so far, and tho honest portion of the press has fol lowed theso concerns so sharply, that thoro seems little likelihood that tho temptation offered by tho statements so full of glittering generalities will hoar fruit. Ono peculiarity of this mining claim, as a well-known man says, is that tho further one is from tho mining regions tho moro valuable is tho property pictured to him. Tho de spatches, he says, from Prescott, doscriptivo of tho region, grow more glowing as they travoIEastor West, 'whllo tho valuo of tho " find " likowiso increases tho further tho de. spatehes go. So that when tho l'aciflo Coast is reached thn original announcement of cer tain valuo is increased almost tenfold. " Experienced miners," wild tho expert, " are not fooled by tho stories of fabulous wealth found. Thero probably aro somo who fool that tho richest mining region is somo spot whoro thoy nro not, and immediately they rush off, to other diggings which givo partial promise of rich returns. "To my mind," continued tho speaker, "tho story printed regarding tho groat wealth in Hassayompa is simply a big adver tisement for an Arizona railroad which is being built near thero. Thoro may bo good ore in that region, but nowhere near tho value reported. But any boom that can bo started now will help the road, and that is tho thing desired. In fact, nil tho latest dis patches from that country have glowing Bide storics of tho now railroad lino. Thou, if tho story is truo, so much tho worse for tho mine, for tho richer tho ore tho less thero is likely to be of it. " Occasionally prospectors find rich pockot3 and then quantities of very low grado ore, but suoh fancy or specimen mines, ns they nro callod, aro poor invest ments. Thero is no valuo to n mine until that valuo has been proven, and iu tho Iircsont instauco thoro is certainly no proof o substantiate tho claims mado." United States Assayor II. G. Torroy, of Torroy & Eaton, SO Wall street, had little faith in the circulated stories of this great find, and would not advise investment until a thorough examination had been mado by a competent and honest engineer. He thought that tho discovery was only a pocket, which would not provo as substantial as was as sorted. Thero woro lots of them, ho said, in that region. Tho story reminded him of a mino in Halifax, whoro in a fow diggings over $15,000 in gold wero taken, Then tho wholo thing gavo out and tho mining property became useless. "It might bo a good idrn to telegraph to somo mining export located near Prescott," ho added, rather satirically, and while no did not speak tho words, his countenance said, " it would probably savo somo one lots of monoy." " Don't put any faith in any newspaper article about tho property," he said. " For niy part, from tho tonor of tho original story of tho mine's wealth, I would havo nothing to do with tho property." C. A. Stctofoldt, mining engineer, of 18 Broadway, commended tho work of Tub Wohld. " Tho story," he said. " looks fishy. It does not augur woll for n mining property to contain such pockets, for tho best mines aro thoso that turn out steadily oro that will assay 420, $25 aud $30 to tho ton. Anything under tho sum is possible but this story is by no means prohnhio. I would not advise an iuvestmont. Then, again, put no confidence iu tho now spaper articles that tend to boom a mine. They are unreliable." J. A. Macl'horsou, Chairman of the Mining Comiuittco of tho Now York Consolidated Stock nnd Petroloum Exchango, thought that if tho figures representing tho vnluo of tho first wore divided by two, or throo, tho result would ho n nearer approximate of its intrinsic worth. Ho put llttlo faith iu tho claim that tho pocket would dovolop richly, nnd advised a rigid investigation of tho prop erty bofoio risking any money ou it. llornco Jones, with J. W. Goddnrd & Sons, importers, C1C Broadway, thought that tho holo thing was pure romance. Ho returned but recently from a trip through tho Has Rayumpa region, nnd ho owns mining prop erty iu thnt section of tho country. Ho be lieves that there is nothing in tho fabulous claims that ore being mado about tho Pres cott mines, and to him it looked ns though some miner had struck n lodge, found this pocket of presumed wealth and now wanted to boom his claim for all that it was worth. Tho Hassayampa region, ho says, has beon workod over more frequently and thoroughly than any other portion of Arizona, with a fow exceptions. Early miners to tho vicinity got tho S.UI10 distinction as did tho California mineisiu M9. " It is claimed that they can trace the vein a milo," said Mr. Jones in n tono of sarcasm, " and see evidences of gold. It's nonsense. Thoy can do nothing of the kind. Thoy havo not workod tho property long enough to do any such thing. In tho mines I own in that region, minors ono day found a remarkably rich pocket. It panned out hundreds of dollars iu gold. But that was all. It petered to nothing. It w as liko n kidney in tho vein, and practically valueless. No doubt it is the samo caso with tho Prescott mines. Thero is probably a pocket thoro, nowhere near tho valuo claimed for it, howovcr, and it will piobubly meet with a fato similar to that other pockot." IHra. Peblon llxpliilnu it Fire.
