t* Attack- of Ihc Rebel Rams,
OBT OFAD'MTR AT, DUPONT
atement of Commanders.
Washington, Peb. 9.—A bearer of official
flit-patches from the fleet off Charleston has
:.r< ived. The following is from Rear Admiral
Dupont, concerning the rebel attack on our
squadron off that port.
Flag-Suit Wabash. ?
Fobt Royal Habbob, Feb. 2, 38C3.)
Sib: I have to report that about 4 o’clock
on the morning of the Slat ult., during the
obscurity of a thick Laze, two iron-clad gun
boats came out of Charleston, by the main
ship channel, unpcrceivcd by the squadron,
and commenced a raid upon tho blockading
fleet' Most of the latter were of the light
class of purchased vessels, two of the heaviest
men-of-war, the Fowhattan and Canandaigua,
being at this port coaling and repairing. The
Merccdita was the first vessel a’leaked. Her
officers and crew had been particularly watch
ful during the night,to look oat fora sus-
J»cctcd vessel, ana at 3 o’clock had shipped
icr cable and overhauled a troop steamer run
ning for the channel. By mistake she had re
turned to her anchorage, and Capt. S tell wa
gon had gone to his room fora short time,
leaving Lieutenant Commander Abbott on
deck, when one of the iroa-clads suddenly
appeared.
Her approach was conceded by thehaze and
mist of the atmosphere. The vessel was im
mediately hailed and an order given to fire,
but the iron-clad being close aboard and lay
ing low in the water, no guns could be
brought to bear. A heavy rifled shell was
fired from the enemy which entering the star
board side of the Mercedita, passed through
her condenser the steam drum of her port
boiler, and it exploded against the port side
blowing a hole in Its esat some four or five
feet square, killing the gunner, andbyithc
escape of steam, scalding a number of the
men and rendering her m o uve power apparent
ly useless. nnd unable to use his guns, and
being at the mercy of Ihc enemy which was
lying alongside on_his starboard quarter, all
further realsUfice was deemed hopeless by
Captain SteUwagcn, and he surrendered. The
crow and officers were paroled, though noth
ing was said about the ship. The executive
officer, Lieut. Commander Abbott, having
gone on board the enemy’s gunboat aud made
the arrangement.
The iron clad leaving the Merccdita to her
late, to sink or not, next engaged the Key
stone State, Commander Leroy, who was also
attacked by the other, their fire was gallantly
returned, but a shell exploding in the fore
hold of this vessel, she was set on fire. Com
mander Leroy kept off until it was got under,
when he steered again for one of tho iron
clads, ordered lUU steam on and determined
to try to run her down. Tho guns had been
trained and depressed for a plunging fire at
the moment of the collision, and the snip had
acquired a speed of twelve knots, when a shell
from the enemy passed through the steam
chest, wholly disabling her boilers and render
inghor powerless.
Ten rifled shots struck the Keystone State:
two burst on the quarter deck, but most of
them struck the hull, being near and below
the water line. In the meantime, the Augus
ta, Commander Parrott, the Quaker City,
Commander Fralley, and the Memphis, Act
ing Lieut. Watmonth, kept up a lire on the
enemy, diverting their attention from the
Keystone State, which was soon after taken in
tow by the Memphis and drawn away from
the fire.
The Augusta and Quaker City were both
struck in their halls, the Memphis only in
her rigging. The Bousatonlc, Capt, Taylor,
gave chase, and a shot from her struck the
pilot house of one of the iron-clads, doing, it
is thought, some damage, and carrying away
one of her flags. The rebel vessels then pass
ed to the northward, receiving the fire or our
ships, and took refuge in the swash channel
behind the shoals.
The only casualties were In the Mercedita
and Keystone Sta*c. On the Kevstonc State
they ore very huge, about one-fourth of her
crew were killed and wounded, among the
former the medical officer of the ship, Assist
ant Surgeon Jacob H. Golwalt, who was
bealded to death while rendering surgical aid
to one of the wounded men. Nine of those
who died perished from the escape of steam
when the boilers and steam chimneys were
penetrated; and among the wounded the
Scaler number received their injuries from
e same cause.
As the was the only vessel which
surrendered, I have directed a court of inqui
ry to examine into the circumstances of the
case, as well us intojihe terms under which the
surrender was made.
On the Mercedita, there were four killed
and three wounded; on the Keystone State,
twenty killed and twenty wounded.
Very respectfully.&c,
(Signed,) 8. F. Dupont,
Bear Admiral, «ic.

Washington, Feb. 9.— The following is the
report of Commander Stcllwagen, of the U. S.
steamer Mercedita:
Post Royal, Jan. 81,1863.
Bear Admiral 8. F. Dnpont, Ac.;
Bib: 1 have to report that atbalf-pasi 4 this
morning two Iron-clad rams from Charleston,
in the oDscurity of a thick haze and the moon
haring Just set, succeeded in passing the
bar rear ship channel, unpercefved by the
squadron, and made an attack on it This
ship being the first encountered, particular
vigilance was exhibited bv the officers and
crew in the expectation of a vessel to nm the
blockade. At 3a. m. we Lad slipped cable
and overhauled a troop steamer running for
the channel by mistake. At 4 o’clock ! hud
down. Lieutenant Commander Abbott was
on deck giving orders to Acting Master Dwy
er, about recovering the anchor, when they
saw a smokc*and the faint apnea nice of a ves
sel close at hand. I heard them exclaim,
“ She has black smoke—watch, man the guns
-spring the rattle—coll all hands to quarters.”
Mr. Dnyer came to the cabin door, telling
me that a steamboat was close aboard. I was
then in the act of getting my pea-jacket, and
slipped it on as 1 followed him out, and
jumped to the poop ladder. I saw a smoke
and a low boat, apparently a tug, although I
thought it might be a little propeller for the
squadron. I sang out, “train your guns,
sight on him, and oe ready to fire as soon os I
order. 1 ' 1 hailed the steamer, “ahoy 1 stand
clear of us, and heave to. What steamer is
that?” I then ordered my men to fire on him,
and told him, “you will be into us ; wJiat
steamer is that?'* His answer to the first or
second hail was: “Halloo!” The other re
plies were indistinct, either by intention or
from having spoken inside his mail armor
until in the act of striking us with his prow,
when he said: “ This is the Confederate States
steam ram.” I repeated the order, “ Fire,
fire!” but no gun could be trained on Mm, as
he approached on the quarter, and struck us
Just abaft of our after mast with a 83-ponndcr
and fired a heavy rifle through us, diagonally,
penetrating the starboard through our Nor
mandy condenser, the steam-drum of our
port boiler, and exploding against the port
side of the ship, blowing a hole in its exit
come four or five feet square.
Beports were brought to me that a shot had
passed through both boilers; that the fires
were put out by steam and smoke; that a gun
ner and oneman were killed, anda number of
men badly scalded; that the water was over
the fire room floor, and the vessel sinking;
that the ram had cat us tbroughat and below
the water line on one side and the shell had
burst at the other almost at the water's edge.
Alter the ram struck she swung round under
our starboard counter, her prow touching,
and hailed, “Surrender, or ITI sink you.
Do you surrender?” After receiving the
report, I answered: “ I can make no re
sistance ; my boiler is destroyed.” “ Then do
vou surrender ?” “Xcs,” I replied, having
found my moving power destroyed, and that
1 could bring notldng to bear but muskets
against shot proof coating. He hailed several
times to sendaboat, ana threatened to fire
again. After some delay a boat was lowered,
and lieutenant commanding Abbott asked if
he should go iu her, and asked for orders
what to say. I told him to see what they de
manded and to tell them the condition we
were in. He proceeded aboard, and according
to their demand gave his parole on behalf of
himself and,all the officers and crew. His re
ports accompanies. . The ram having been de
tained half an hour or more, ran one. for Um
KrytonortsselTinfl three others
we bad trledtpalann by lights. We saw a
shell crplode ns it struck the ram without in
juring her. Saw the Keystone State struck
several times, and saw the steam aud smoke
blowing from her.
The firing then receded to the northward
aud eastward, and was pretty brisk at the
bead of the line. I set everybody at work
taking care of our wounded, pumping the
ship, stopping leaks, examining the engines,
Ac.
About C o’clock p. m. got things In order to
start a little steam and hove up anchor. The
BtetHn and Flag seeing our condition. I told
ihcmlhcyxnight be wantedto the southward
to pick up men, the fighting now being over.
Jn Conclusion, I have to Bay that In -the
squadron, where all the vessels were conspic
uous for yigUcncc, this ship has never been
found Granting. Everything was done the
circumstances permitted, and In a proper
manner. Very respectfully, your obedient
servant, H. 8. Stellwagen.
COMMAND EE LEROT’S REPORT.
Sir : 1 have to report thatabont five o’clock
on this day .January 31, while at anchor off the
main entrance of the harbor of Charleston,
the ship was approached by what was suppos
ed to he a steamer, but, appear
aura as suspicious, I ordered the cable slipped,
and llrgd a gun, which was responded to by a
shell, when I ordered the guns to be fired as
they could be brought to bear npon the ob
ject- On putting my head to the eastward,
it was discovered that there was one on cither
quarter, and we made them out, from their
peculiar construction, to bo iron-duds, after
the model of the Merrimac. Owing to a fire
in the hold, we stood to the northward about
ten minutes, and, shoaling water, kept south
east about ten minutes, to enable ns to sub
due the- fire, and then I turned around,
and under full steam, proposed aUemptinir
to run down the ram; but about six a. in, a
shell from one of them entered on the port
tide, the forward whodhousc guard, passing
through the port steam chimney, and lauding
in the starboard, depriving us of our motive
power. Ten rifie shells struck the ship and
two buret on the quarter deck, most of them
Ftrikirg the hull, being near and below the
wa crline.
Our steam chimneys being destroyed, our
motive power was lost, and our situation be
c»mc critical. There were iwo feotofwator
the ship and leaking badly, the water rising
rapidly and rhc fire hold on fire. 0 hers of
the squadron coming along, the ram that had
injured us so much altered her course, and
before our wheels entirely stopi>cd we were
enabled to get a hawser from the Memphis
"und were taken in tow.
!*.\l regret to report our casualties very large.
.‘Semetwenty were killed and twenty wounded*
' Ajinong the killed I hare 10 mention the sur
g*-on of the ship, Assistant Surgeon Jacob H.
Uotwald, who was killed while In the act of
rendering aseis’anccto some of the wounded.
Capt. Watmough, bf.thc Memphis, kindly
gave ns the services of Acting Assistant Sur
geon Brown, to whom libel much indebted
for the attention he has exhibited in caring
for the wounded.
Being unable to communicate wi‘h the se
nior officer present, personally or by signal, I
deemed it my duty (Commander Fralley ad
vising the step) to make tho best of my way
to Port Royal, Commander Fralley (by my re
quest) advising the senior officer that I would
leave In tow of the Memphis, unless he gave
further orders. .....
Accompanying please find list of casualties.
In conclusion, I beg to call attention to the
desire manifested by all under my command
to destroy the enemy, and particularly to the
cool and efficient manner In which 1 was sec
onded by Lieutenant Commanding, Thomas
IL Eastman, the executive officer of the ship.
I am, vciy respectfully,your obedient servant
Wm. E, Llbov, Commander.
LIEUTONANT COMMANDER ABBOTT'S BEPOBT.
Sir : In obedience to yonr order I proceed
ed to the rebel ram, and was received by
Lleuls. Parker and Phyrock, and conducted
by the former Inside of the house, where I
was received by her Captain. His name I did
not learn. I told him Iliad come in the name
of Capt. SteUwngcn to give up the United
States steamer Merccdita, she being in aslak
iogand perfectly defenceless condition.
They asked me about the condition of our
boats and the number ol our crew* I told them
our boats were not large enough nor in a
proper condition to cany our number of
crew.
After privately consulting with the Com
modore, the Captain returned to me, saying
“that they had concluded to parole onr offi
cers and crew, provided I would pledge my
sacred word oi honor that neither I nor anv
of the officers and crew of the Merccdita
would again take up arms against Confede
rate States during the war unless legally and
regularly exchanged as prisoners of war.
Believing it to be the proper course to pur
sue at that time, I consented. I was then in
formed that I could return to tho Mercedita.
I will here state In this report that I was on
deck at the time the smoke of the ram was
discovered, and in less than two minutes she
was into us.
Your order to fire into her could not he
obeyed, as no gun in the ship could be de
pressed or trained to hit her, though every
effort was made to do so, she being so low in
the waterand coming upon us quartering. Wo
had only time to get the watch to their quar
ters, ana before we could slip onr cable we
were without steam, a shell having passed
completely through the ship and boilers.
I am, very respectfully,
T. Abbott, Lieut. Commanding.
Captain Hcmy S. Slcllwagcn, United States
steamer Mercedita.

Bape.—Dr. Ezra A. Whipple, 47 North
Clark street, the party arrested for rape, as
mentioned In yesterday’s Tribute, has been
examined and held for trial. The testimony
was most direct, the victim of the infamous
wrong swearing fully to the commission of
the crime, while in thoDoctor's private office,
whither she had gone for advice. Under the
plea of its being essential to a treatment of
her ease, the grossest liberties were taken
with her, and the girl was made the no willing
•ricum of one of the foulest crimes.
The outraged party Is a v ery pale, slckly
uppearinggirl, of aboutclghtceuycarsofage,
of rather prepossessing appearance, and of
good standing in society, being a member of
the Episcopal Church- She Is au orphan, her
parents having been dead for a number of
years, daring wMch time she has resided with
a married aunt.
The Doctor is a married man, about thirty

medical office at 47 North Clark street.
Fatal Railroad Accident.— About six o’-
clock yesterday moruingaiuan named Andrew
Grade, was killed on the Michigan Central
Railroad track opposite the foot of Congress
street, by being ran over by a train. He was
an employee In the Illinois Central Car Works,
and was walking on the track or trestle work,
on his way to the shops, when struck by the
train. His body was found npon the ice be
low the track some Umeotterwards, with both
legs terribly crashed # aud his body consider*
.ably braised. Life was extinct when the
body was found. The accident occurred
before daylight, and' though the Coroner
with his usual diligence spent most of the
day in search of witnesses, not a single en
gineer, fireman or brakeman coaid be found,
who knew anything of the accident. Mr.
Grade was a Norwegian, had been In this
country about eight yean, and leaves a wife
and six children to mourn his loss. Walking
upon this trestle south, a mile or more, be
fore daylight where there arc several tracks
very near each oilier, used by throe different
railroad companies, and where trains arc al
•mofct constantly passing, is one of the most
hazardous and cpusolcsa acts a man can com
mit, especially as there arc no bettor walks In
the city than than those on Michigan Avenue."
Such an act Is almost equivalent to suicide.
RECORDER’S COURT.
Sentencing the Prisoners.
SCENES. IK TUI! COCET EOO3I.
Wednesday was the eloping day of the Feb*
ruary term of the Recorder’s Court, and at
2 o’clock p. m. tlie prisoners who -had been
tried during the session, were called tip to re*
ccirc sentence. They were a strange andmot
ley squad, presenting in some cases, every va
riety of feature and feeling, which guilt can
paint upon the human countenance, and in
others a comical expression of bravado and
devil-may-care-ism, which would have graced
the phislognomy, and done honor to the pluck
and heart of Jack Shepherd himself, in the
palmiest days of Ms career, when Beaks were
continually sentencing him to Newgate, and
Jack was continually laughing at them for
their presumption and folly.
Crowds of curions spectators thronged the
Court, having come up expressly to sec the
show, which, however, was anything hut a
funny one, and in more than one instance,
was sorrowful enough.
As the prisoners were mustered into the
hall, and took their seats opposite the re
porter’s tables, we were rather surprised to
find that most of them were young men, from
18 to 25 years of age, * It seemed a pity that
these fellows, stout and strong as they were,
should he prisoners at the bar on charges of
little and big larceny, assaulting policemen,
and the like, when there was so much need of
limb and muscle in the field, and such good
wages to pay for their use.
It was evident they cared nothing about the
country, although the country—through its
officers—showed a far better disposition, and
was then and there, ready to take care of
them. One of the prisoners had been, it is
true, both in the army and navy, but he found
the discipline a little too laborious and strin
gent for his nerves, and so he took to finger
ing the “ flimsies,” ns a lighter and more ele
gant employment; andnodouhtthcvulgarity
cfcarningtheir.livelihoodbythe sweat oftheir
brows was the real reason which induced the
rest of the light-fingered gentry present to
adopt the avocation of purse stealing, and
the various other kinds of stealing set down
against them in the'criminal record of the
court.
The first person called to Judgment was
James Stanton, a short-necked fellow, with
not a bad face; the charge against him being
an assault upon a policeman. The policeman
had previously done his best to save tho man
from the extreme penalty of the law, and
pleaded his subsequent good conduct as a rea
son why the court should be merciful; hut
the police arc a sacred body of men, and ho
who does them bodily harm must take h!s
punishment without let, hindrance or clem
ency. So* the Judge told the prisoner ho
should fine him $250, and that ho must stand
committed until the money was paid.
Stanton told the Judge that he was drunk
when he made the assault, and so did Wm.
Rankin, the next on the roll, who was charged
with stealing a coat The plea here availed
nothing in either case, neither in this last, for
some reason which did not transpire, or
which wc could not hear. The Judge said
he might, perhaps, try to get the sentence re
mitted that he was about to pronounce. The
sentence was one year at hard labor in the
State Penitentiary. Rankin looked like an
intelligent fellow, and seemed grateful for the
kind words of the Judge.
James Raymond was then called- There
were two indictments against him, but he ap
peared to have a good character up to these
offenses, (both of which grew out of one trans
action,) and he was sentenced to six months
in the county JaiL In pronouncing sentence,
the Judge told him if he conducted himself
well in prison, the other charge would not he
preferred against him, at which tho prisoner
smiled all over his lace, and, as he left the
bar, rubbed his hands quite unconsciously,
with gratitude for his good luck.
Amanda Hollingsworth’s case was called
next. “ How came yon, Amanda,” asked the
Judge, “to steal that money?” “I wanted
it, please your Hoiioy,” was the reply, “and
it looked so mighty temptin’ I couldn’t keep
these arc hands off It,” “Why, Amanda,”
said tho Bench, “that was very wicked of
you. You were working in the house you
took the money from, were’nt you ?”
“Well, yecs ear, I was, an’ that’s a fiict!”
“Could you not wait, Amanda, until your
wages became due?” asked the Judge. “ No,
ear! Seemed I must take it—couldn’t help it,
nohow!” To other questions, she replied
that she was sixteen years old, and had al
ready been in Jail six weeks. “Well,” sold
the Judge, “if I fix a short time for impris-
will you promise never to steal
again?” “Yes, earreel I will,” said Amanda,
and she was sentenced to forty days In the
countyjall.
William Xerby was charged with stealing a
roll of carpet valued at S2O. He was not the
handsomest looking customer we have seen
in our travels, Ms face being utterly repulsive,
his eyes very small, black and sinister, Ms
face foil of dingy and horrible wrinkles, aud
Ms balr crisp and set on Ms head like a bundle
of wire. Hehadjustcomc oatof the county
jail, and like so many others pleaded drink as
Ms excuse for stealing. The Judge thought
he would try the effect of the Penitentiary
upon him, and sent Mm there to hard labor
for a year.
Hugh Tatterson was another drunken rob
ber, and he got two years in the Penitentiary
and li&rd labor, as his reward.
A nice pair of left-handed named re
spectively Nathaniel and Bose Dexter, were
brought up forsentence, charged with stealing
SO4. of Treasury notes. Their counsel moved
a new trial, but it was overruled, and they
were each condemned to one year’s hard labor
in the Penitentiaiy.
Another Treasury* note theft was charged
upon George Seymour, whose case elicited a
good deal of sympathy from the Court. He
was a decent looking fellow, and decently
dressed in black, and when asked wby he
went into the hotel (specified in the original
indictment against Mm) to steal the money,
he declared that he did not steal it, evidence
on bis trial, notwithstanding. We could
scarcely a word he said, but made out
tbnt he was of respectable parents, who lived
In Springfield; that he had been both in the
army and navy; that he never went under any
alias; and had lived until wltMn the last two
years, all Ms life in Springfield. A gentleman
present testified to the respectability of Ms
family, and to Ms own respectability, ten
years ago, when he knew Mm personally. The
Judge said he would write to his father, and
he would make other inquiries also, and that
if injustice had been done to Mm be would
sec Mm righted. The prisoner seemed a very
intelligent person, aud was much affected.
He was sentenced to one year hard labor in
penitentiary.
Plilllip Strosscr—a thick-headed, bull-neck
ed fellow—was sentenced to thirty days in
'the County Jail, for stealing a watch; at
which he seemed mighty pleased. James
Fendgan, for pocketing a fat hog, was sent
twenty days to County Jail. Charles Henry
stole a mans' coat, and said ho didn’t mean
to do It! He was drunk at (he time. He had
been In the Penitentiary, once upon a time,
for drunkenness, and he looked like a regular
soaker. If thaCom-l would ouly be merciful
to him, however, he swore he would never
drink again; that he would be willing to go
thirty years to prison if the dirty whiskey
burnt Ms throat more. He. got ninety days
in the County Jail, and bowed, as he thanked
the Judge, as If he had given him a ten dol
lar bill. •
Hosanna Brooke, a gay woman in all senses
of the word, bad stolen thirty-four dollars
from a fool whom she had cozened into her
house and well plied with drink. Of course
she denied the fact, but that did not bar Judg
ment against her, wldch was this: one year
in the Penitentiary.
George Lumpkins, was
convicted with stealing a gun, wldch he
wanted to go, he said, to the wars with, to
fight the sccesh. It was true that he had
. been in Bridewell before; but he didn’t mean
stealing this time, only lighting. He was
sent to the county Jail for six months.
There were two indictments against one
George ‘Wheeler, for stealing two coats, one
valued at twelve dollars and the other at
twenty. Thirty days in county Jail for the
first, and fifteen for the second offense.
Mary A. Hodges, a respectable looking Irish
woman, with two well dressed children, one
at the breast, was charged with stcaliugfifteen
dollars in hank bills. Tbc Jndge heard what
the woman had to say for herself, and
then saidj “1 know this woman. She
has, I am persuaded, a constitutional

be thrown open to the children of the public
schools at ten cents each. A band will bo in
attendance, and this small fee is charged to
meet the extra expense,incurred for the furth
erance of the pleasure of the little ones. We
have no doubt the Park will be again crowded
to overflowing npon this occasion. The ex
cellent plan of adding the music of instru
ments to the music of skates will heighten
the excitement of the festivity. In whatever
light the skating community may view the
Washington Park, In the esteem of the chil

always gratefully refer.
A Good Chaplain Gone Home.—lntelli
gence has just been received at his homo in
Bockford, of the death of Rev. A. H, Conant,
Chaplain of the 19th Illinois, on last Sunday
at noon. No particulars have come of the
sad event, except that he died from sickness—
we believe in the hospital at Memphis. The
body win be brought by express to care of
W. M. Larrabcc, esq., of this city, an old
personal friend, and bo taken from hero to
Geneva, in Ibis State, the long time home and
burial place of the family, where the funeral
services will be held.
Mr. Conant was well known In this city, in
the West and in New England, as an earnest
and able preacher of the Unitarian faith. He
was settled for many years In Geneva, and re
moved thence in 185U to the larger parish in
Rockford. After the war broke out, when the
19ih Illinois was organized. Colonel TurcUln
selected him for chaplain of the regiment. It
was a hard field of labor, enough to disheart
en almost any other man. Mr. Conant en
tered into his work with the earnest devotion
that liad characterized his entire public life
and ministry, enlarged aud deepened to meet
the heavier work God bad now given him to
do.
He went out a strong, healthy,country-bred
life-long temperate man, and in the camp, tbo
hospital and on tbo battle field, by day and
by night, devoted himself, utterly and in all
ways to deeds of helpful mercy. This labor
has carried the strong man to his grave In
' much less than two years, and now he Is num
bered in tbc great array of noble American
men who Lave gladly given their lives for tbc
noble American cause. Mr. Conant’slifc was
all of a piece. He fought slavery always aud
every where, in the full conviction that it was
the deadly enemy of the American Union.
He saw early and clearly the fearful and grow
ing debusementof public and private morals.
He never tried to bide bis convictions. He will
be mourned and his loss will bo felt wherever
he was known for a brave, earnest and unsel
fish servant of God—a good preacher of the
trutb, and a good man in every aspect aud
work of bis life.
A Daring Thief.— At about o'clock
Tuesday evening, two young men went Into
the boot and shoe store of Bullock 8r05., '43
Clark street, one of wbom desired to be
shown some boots.- Mr. Bullock immediately
waited upon him, and while so doing, noticed
that his companion was suspiciously near the
money drawer. He watched them for a few
minutes, and their actions being very strange,
he finally told the one who had inquired for
the boots that he had none, to fit him, and
started to go round the counter. As he did
so, the other party, who had been all the time
sitting on a stair railing, beside the desk con
taining the money drawer, started toward the
door. Getting behind the counter, Mr. Bul
lock immediately noticed the open drawer
and called to the man to stop, who, instead of
doing so, started on a run, followed quickly
by Mr. Bullock. At the door, Mr. B. lost
sight of him, and supposing that ho had gone
up im an adjacent staircase, stationed himself
ot the door to await the arrival of the police.
In the meantime the other escaped, and a
search up the stairs revealed the tact that the
first one was not in the building, he having
probably got into the alley and gone through
to Dearborn street. Three dollars were found
to be gone, though had it not been fortho
vigilance of Mr. B. the whole contents of tho
diawcr, about SIOO, would undoubtedly have
been taken.
A Sorry Sight. —Yesterday afternoon, an
Irishwoman named Mrs. Cowan, applied to the
through car going south on State street, fora
ride, and was so drank that two men were re
quired to assist her into the car. She was ac
companied by her son, a boy of twelve years
of age. The little fellow said his father lived
on the corner of Market and Pierson streets,
and that he didn't do anything fora living.
From the appearance of the mother and child,
this is evidently true, as both bore the marks
of poverty and dissipation. The boy said he
had two brothers in the Reform School, and
that he and his mother were going to see
them. The woman wore that vacant stare
which can be seen only in the drunkard’s
face, and her clothing was covered with mud
where she had fallen in the street. Thcpos
sengers searched ber covered basket, and
found a bottle nearly full of whisky, which
they threw into the s;rect, greatly to her sur
prise and against her entreaties. The mother
did not excite theplty of the passengers, tothc
same extent as the little bright-eyed boy, who
lias Inherited such a miserable, disgraceful
parcutbgc. We hope some charitable friend
may look after that family and place the boy
with bis two brothers, where they may find
a good home.

the attention of the citizens of Chicago to some
facts. It is not generally known that there ia any

there are more qualities perhaps than of Eastern

FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL,
THE 2KOXEY MARKET.
Wednesday Evening, Feb. 11, 1863,
Operations have been so heavy for many weeks
past that money just now is rather close—more so
than It has been for months. Even best customers
have within a week been denied accommodations
by some of the banks. It Is believed the strin
gency will be temporary.
Some of the hanks report New York exchange
decidedly close, while others say it is a shade ea
sier. The baying price is par; selling # premi
um. Some of the leading houses do not hold it as
firmly as yesterday.
Gold Is still drooping. Bankers paid 51#®52.
Most of them paid the upper figure till this after
noon when the market in New York advanced to
155#, which caused buyers here to advance their
figures accordingly.
Old Treasury notes were bought at 60. New, as
heretofore.#premium, and# was the selling rate.
The range for silver was still 85®40, though tho
upper figure was only paid by a few of the brokers
for choice round lots.
Milwaukee Money Mauket.—The Sentinel of
yesterdays says:
Dispatches from New York, yesterday, reported
gold dull at 54. This caused u decline of [email protected] per
cent, here, baying rotes ranging from On
a falling, market dealers like to bay on a good
margin. The effect on the produce market was
very depressing, causing a henry decline In prices,
ana a feverish aodumeettlcd feeling. Silver and
old Treasury notes were unchanged.
The money market presented nothing new.
Money was plenty, and good business paper in de
mand. Exchange continues at former rates, viz:
buying at par and selling at #@# per cent, pre

There was a good attendance on ’Change to-day,
and a fair inquiry for general produce, but tho
further decline in gold rendered the markets heavy.
In the afternoon gold advanced to $1.56j4c, and the
markets closed firmer.
The Provision market was almost dead. During
the past few days the great balk of tho orders in
brokers hands hnvo been withdrawn, and the de
mand Is very trifling. 1 Provision operators both
here and In New York have been frightened out of
their wits by tho reaction In Wall street, and there
seems to bo no Inquiry for anything, except at a
very material reduction in prices, which holders
will not submit to. The transactions were there
foie confined to sales of about 40,000 Jhs. Bulk
Meats at 3Kc, loose, for shoulders, and s#c for
