The complainants, as relrs-at-law of Owen Murray, who died in 1S57, are entitled to one half of this property, of which they claim the defendants have kept forcible possession. A suit of ejectment was entered in 1879 and a judgment rendered In favor of the complainants. They now lay bsfore the court the impracticability of dividing the house and lot, and ask that it be ordered sold, and that the defendants ba required to render an account of rentals, &c . received.

Republicans and tlie Headjuster's Convention* The Virginia Republican Association met last night in St. George's hall, 11th street northwest, W. F. Cooper (president) in the chair, and John A. Cooper, secretary. The delegation appointed at a former meeting to wait on the President to urge the restoration of John A. Moss to h's former library position at the Capitol reported that the President Informed them that he believed that Moss had been wronged, and that at a more convenient time he would give the matter some attention; and that he invited the committee to call on him hereafter, when he would have more time to consider t'ae matter. Mr. Scott Wood moved that two delegates be elected to represent this association in the readjuster state convention to oe held in Richmond on the 2d of June. A lively discussion arose between Messrs. Mitchell and Mo;s as to the propriety of sending delegates to meet in a readjuster convention, without Invitation. Air. Mitchell took the ground that the call was not a joint one, and for that reason it was entirely improper for republicans to pay any attention to it. The secretary was asked to read the call, as published in the Richmond wh o, and it was read. It was directed exclusively to the readjuster party, and the motion to elect delegates was thereupon unanimously voted c!o?n. Letters were re-ad from several prominent Virginia republicans urging a combination of t he factions in the fall election as the only means of defeating the Bouroor.s m the coming contest. The meeting adjouraed subject to the ca-l of thp president. Terrible Charge Against a Fattier.

Iu the Police Court this morning the assistant district attorney stated that in view of the condition of the girl he had directed that the witnesses go before the grand Jury at once, and he suggested that tne cafe here be postponed. He asked that tlie bonds be fixed at $2,000 for appearance of the prisoner. Judge Sneli remarked that this case showed the necessity of some law in this District on the subject of incest. Mr. L. C.

Lewis Collins, colonid, who was convlc'ed of forgeiy in the Polics Court yesterday, was today put on trial for the larceny of a lot of p:at -d silverware from George H. La Fetra.

It was expectel tliat Miss Llllle Meloy would be called for crossexamination, but a letter was reau from her stating that she was confined to the house by slcknes?. Sbe sent a physician's certificate in support cf the statement, and went on to say that she had submitted to a tedious examination, and told all that sbe knew, and that she declined to appear for a cross-examination, which would only be long and irksome. Mr. Irgersoll Eald If Miss Meloy was too sick to atteLd tbey would wait until she recovered. It 1 would not be necessary to have prolonged sessions if wearisome to her, but they might cut them up into short ones for her accommodation. Mr. Cook, the counsel of Mrs. Christ,lancy, to settle the difficulty, offered to withdraw the testimony already given by Miss Meloy. Mr. ' Ingersoll objected to that being done, claiming 1 that as it was in now and a part of the case, it 1 must remain until stricken out by the chance!lor. Miss Meloy, he said, bad given her testi- I mony, and had been turned over to them for i . cross-examination.
