Tho body of ladies calling themselves Good Samaritans, who aro under tho leadership of lira. Forbes, bare determined to bold a mass moeting at tbo curliest possible moment for tho purpose of exposing tbo wrong-doings of tho band of sisters under tbo leadership of Mrs. Walbort, who also call tbomsolvoa Good Samari tar.n. Mrs. Forbes explains tbo CAUSE OF THE LATEST IUJMTOS in this way: When Mrs. Walbort became Presi dent of tho Society, there being no rule or law defining the duties of officers, she, taking ad vantage of tho omission, ruled tho Society at her caprice. She put only such motions as pleased her, and many a time declared a motion carried or lost when tho voto was tbo other way. Mrs. Forbes, in her visits to tbo Shoitor, pro fessed to have discovered some M irregularities,” and, having dared to speak of them ut a meet ing, incurred tho displeasure of tho President, Mrs. Walbort. The subsequent proceedings hove boon freely chronicled, and need not bo now repealed, li will buliico to sav that Sirs. Forbes has very SERIOUS CHARGES to prefer against tho manager of tho Shelter. To of them .* l^ivsl— Mrs. Foiboa called at the Shelter on Thanksgiving Day, taking a basket in which wore turkey hud good things, which she desired to give the inmates for their Thanksgiving dinner. She whs met at the door by ono llastcr, who rudely denied ber admission, refused to accept tbo basket from her, and ordered her away, under a throat of calling for aid from tho police. Second— A few nights ago Mrs, Whcolor obliged an inmate, who is Buttering from a sore on one of her logs, to ncrub the floors. Tho girl was weak, and bogged to be relieved of tho duty for that night at least. Mrs. Whoclorrc-. fused; tho girl worked, and tho result was that tho soro burst out blending afresh, and her pres ent condition Is infinitely worse than when she fiiet entered tbo Shelter. Third— About two months ago, a woman called at the Shelter, and loft a child there, ex lircsßing tho wish that tho baby should die. Tho >aby did not receive proper nourishment, and was repeatedly hold under a hydrant of cold water, which two combined soon effected tho death of the child, in accordance with tho heartless desire of tho woman who left it. Ko inquiry was made of tho woman whore tho baby came from, who wore its parents, or anything to insure its iden tity if it were necessary, and, most suspicious part of all, no report of tho death was over made ut the mootings of the Society. These statements Mis. Porbcs declares she is ready to testify to under oath. “They have forced mo into this thing, and I am determined now that tho public shall know tho perlidyof these women who claim,tho sup port of charitable persons for tho aid'of tho Shelter. 1 tried my very best to keep this expose from tho public, to contino our dilVorcucos and our mistakes within the Society, for 1 believe wo are capable of rectifying them. But what reception did 1 gut when I read a paper at tho meeting held Nov. 10, 1874, after the rouoitcrs had gone, reciting tho major part of tho charges I now make in detail? Mrs. BluLhardt said in her snicastic way, * Utuph, wo don’t want to lis ten to complaints from papers.' 1 toil you it is, in my opinion, barbarous to leave those girls in charge of these Christian women. 1 have tho greatest respect for Christianity, but THOSE MEN, Mrs. Barnett, who was present during tho fore going conversation, hero broke in unoeromoni mt.-lr. saying: “ 'Tin men are tho cause of all this trouble.. There's that Hauler aud Jim Chisholm and & couple moro and that doctor. Men are tlio cause of it all, and those young mon who have no sense and don’t know, tho giddy racks, what they are saying or doing ouo-hulf tho time." Mrs. Baiuott was one of the founders of tho Good Samaritan Society, and feels very much aggrieved at tho turn affhiis have taken. 1)11. THOMAS. Then tho question “ Where shall we hold tho meeting ?” was talked over. *• hut's (jo to Dr. Thomas' oharch!" “Wo can’t go to Thomas’ church I” “ wiiy not y “ Well, il what Mrs. Walberfc sava is true, Dr. Thomas wouldn't open Ids church cither to you (Mrs. P )or Cynthia (L ).” “Well, ho can only refuse ; but I don’t think Thomas has said any such thing.” ‘•The fact is, Thomas thinks that you (Mrs. f )m° a Woman’s Bights woman, and you know Thomus can’t alTord to recognize thorn, no matter what Ids private opinion may bo!” “That is truo enough, ray dour 5 but I am de termined, when I eeo Thomas, to have this mut ter out with bim—to know whether ho ever ex pressed himself in that way.” The ladies finally decided to wait on Dr, Thomas, and, if they cannot got him to open his church, to secure a public hall, duo notice of which will bo given. Later in the evening a notice headed “Startling Disclosures” was received at this ofiloo, stating that the “Society of Good Samaritans” will hold a mass-mooting In Methodist Church Block, corner of Clark and Washington streets, at half past 7 o’clock this evening. To it was added an invitation to “ every man and woman in Chicago who feels an interest in (ho cause of humanity and is opposed to cruelty and oppression” to ho present and “hoar for him self or herself.” A special Invitation was extended to the Mayor and Common Council, and the Information imparted that Mis. Barnett, the President of the Society, would preside, aud that speeches would bo made by .Mrs. Chaso, Mrs. Briggs, Mrs. Leonard, Mrs. Col. Gregory, and others. OLD PEOPLE’S HOME.

The formal opening of tim Old People’s Homo occurs thu afternoon at 2 o’clock, when such of the Chicago public us care to make the journey will have tho privilege of inspecting one of tho finest institutions of tho kind iu tho world. The Home is located on tho corner of Indiana avenue uud Fortieth street.

THE HOME, as its narao indicates, Is for old people—aged and milrra men aud women who cun no longer work for a living, aud to whom the comforts of a homo are tho last and host gift. It Is truly a magnificent charity, en titling its promoters to grateful aud honored re membrance. Tho Homo complete will contaiu accommodations for about 100 inmatos, duo ro- Eard having boon had for tho requirements of osllh ami comfort. Tho most improved plan of ventilation has boon adopted aud applied to each of tho slooning-roomH, From each iloor veran dahs open both upon tho from and upon ttio court, bo that a breath of frosli air may bo ob tained without goiug up and down stairs; and, to savo the same laborious effort to such of the In mates ns are feeble, dumb-waiters for tho con veyance of food run from tho baiomout to tho upper il oo ra.

Bath-rooms and water clouote aro supplied in abundance, and everything that can holp to mako tbo littlo that remains of life endurable to tbo veterans who aro to abido hero henceforth, liberal aud cateful hands havo done. Tho Koine is au institution to which tho poopio of Chicago cau point with pride. There is nothing of Its character superior to it in Amer ica. PROFESSIONAL BAILERS. ONE or THEM TUIINED ODI OF TUB SOUTH SIDE police court. Justice Boydon moots with many annoyances in his efforts to rid tho South Side Police Court of tho swindlers and shyster lawyers who infest it. Last week ho begun tho war against tho latter class of vagrants by notifying one Thomas Loddie. Jr., that he would no longer bo tolerated iu tho court-room; but, notwithstanding this, Lcddie intruded his presence upon tho Court yesterday morning, and. when court adjourned, was still loitering around tho Clerk's desk, where Sorpt. Eboraold discovered tho attorney, and unceremoniously collared him and lauded him out on tho sidewalk, in a manner that indi cated business should ho again bo caught there. Another uourco of torment exists in Police Courts, and especially so on tho South Side, in tho way of ” professional bailors.’* Yesterday morning ouo of these follows was brought to grief suddenly by being detected iu an attempt to swindle a woman. Thursday morning Justice Hoyden lined Itichard Boborta, Benjamin Jones, and Joseph Davis S3O each for assaulting a man named Trayuor. Tho lino of one of tho on’omJors was liquidated, while those of tho other twowoio hold over till yesterday, owing to tbo fact that the men convinced the attaches of tho Court that they could sortie tho lino then. Yesterday morning Mr. J. \V. Jones, Superintendent of the Silvcrsuiiihing and Belitung Company, at which place tho men are employed, put man appear ance in behalf of the pnsouors, and through his instrumentality succeeded in securing a re bate of $lO in each case, thus reducing mo linos from SOO to S3O. After this transaction a female friend of tho two offenders, at whoso house they are boarding, started for tbo Harrison Street Station in order to settle their lines—she being unaware of the above transaction. When near tho station she was met by ono of tho “ professional bailors ” —who hang around the Court seeking whom they can swindle out of a dollar or two—named Louis Hillman, aho had been present at tho time tho rebate was made. Hillman informed her that ho was the Judge of tho Court, and for SSO ho would reduce the Quo to that amount. Tho woman accepted the prop osition and handed Hillman tho currency, who, to keep up tho appearance of carrying out the contract, employed Daniel Lawrence, practition er in tho Police Court, to obtain tho rebate, and gave him $lO fur his professional services. Im mediately after this tho woman mot with Mr. Jones, and related to that gentleman what she had accomplished. Mr. Jones could scarcely* behove the statement, and, to satisfy himself, culled on Hillman, and ascertained that he had actually received the money. On learning this, he in formed Hillman that tho lines had been settled, and demanded that bo refund tho money to tno woman. This he declined to do, and, as a result, was arrested and brought bolero tho Justice, who hoard tho statement os above, and promptly required the swindler to refund tho SSO, and, severely reprimanding him, uotitiod tho scoun drel that his presence would never tigam be tol erated iu that Court. After being compelled to disgorge his ill-gotten gains, Hillman demanded that Lawrence refund to him tho $lO note that he had paid bun for his services, iieio an amusing dialogue was witnessed between the two men. Mr. Lawrence informed the bailor that ho had employed his services, and he (Law rence) had entered the motion for the rebate, and therefore ho should retain the $lO, which he did, to tho satisfaction of the spectators and tho disgust of tho crestfallen bailor, who sneaked out of the court-room minus $lO. DEMOSTHENES JUNIOR. TUB CHEAT UILUUETU TUJUBTS FOU GOf.B. Thoro came near being auothor Hesing 44Little Prank" row lust evening, tho parties Interested this time being Alderman Hildreth and a Times reporter. It appears that tho 2'imea of Monday contained a paragraph announcing that, if 4 ‘ Aid. Stout and Hildreth did not stop playing poker, tho 'Times would toll on them." Tuis item made ,4 young Domosthouos'' very angry, though it made no impression upou Mr. Stout. Mooting tho reporter in tho Council' chamber last evening, Hildreth called him a “cur," and might have gone further had not tho body boon called to order just as Hildreth was getting red in the face. After tho adjournment, the murderer of tho King's English began abusing the reporter again, saying he was a “duty dog," a cur, a pup, and no goutiouian. Tho reporter asked him if ho denied ever playing poker. Hildreth said ho never did, aud thou coircctod himself, adding that ho had played once, and thou ho took a Times man’s hand. The lookers-on laughed, and the reporter remarked that ho would uot be dictated to—ho should write what he chose. Hildreth approached him, aud snook his list m his face, white Aid. McCiory ad vised him to do as Hcsiug did with littlo Prank. The reporter stood ready, anticipating an as sault. but tho other Aldermen, who had trom tho first mildly remonstrated with Hildreth for his unseemly aud rowdy-like conduct, interfered and stopped him. The ropoitor then loft tho room, while Hildreth became moro blatant and belligerent than before, knowing that there was no one present disposed to resent his insolence, and give him a thrashing.

As tho Committees of tho Common Connell are now about dis solving, tho Finance Committee de serves tho warmest commendation. No differences of opinion have ever disturbed its mootings, and, although some of its members have not attended promptly, they havo rarolv. If over, failed to secure a quorum. Tho import ance of such a committee cannot bo over estimated, especially when it is one that controls, to a groat extent, tho purse-strings of the oity. THE COMMITTEE ON RAILROADS. The Committee on Railroads mot yesterday afternoon in the City Clerk’s offlce. Present, Aid. Lengachor, Warren, Richardson, andStoue. Au ordinance providing for the right of way f.ir a horse-railroad on Wabash avenue met with some opposition, because the Company was merely designated as the Wabash Avenue Railway Company, and no names were mentioned. The Chairman. Aid. Longacher, thought that the names of the stockholders ought to bo given rn full. Ho did not believe iu graining a franchise to anv company for a more matter of speculation, to bo bought and sold at will. Aid. Wanon moved to lay the ordinance over for two weeks. The motion was seconded by Aid. Stout; Aid. Richardson and Lengachor voting No. Aid. Cullerton, who presented the orditmnne, was then called in to explain away the diflrcultles. Ho loaned bock in his chair, and, in his cool, supercilious manner, said that ho wm!d vouch for the reliability of the stockholders, but did not feel inclined to give their names. Aid. Stout said chat ho was aware chat a similar ordinance, emanating from a company other than the Wa bash Avenue Railway Company, had boon lu the hands of tho Committee on Streets and Alloys for months past. Ho was in favor of reporting favorably on the ordinance, thus‘bringing both before tho Council at the same time. Aid. War ren supported him. Aid. Lengachor and Rich ardson did not think it proper for tho Commit tee to report favorably on anything that they know nothing about. On putting tho question, Aid. Warren and Stout voted to report favorably on the petition, ami Aid. Richardson and Lou gachor peremptorily voted No. A petition of the Illinois River Railroad, asking for an extension of time iu laying their track, was ordered placed on die. Tho railroad was limited to Nor. 10 in laying its track inside tho city limits, and it petitioned for au extension of time to Jan. 1, 187 G. An ordinance providing for tho location of flagmen at all railroad street-crossings was placed ou flic. Tho Committee then adjourned. SUBURBAN. Throo-card-raonte men yet continue their operations ou the Galeua Division of the North western Railroad, notwithstanding the ill-success of their companion who was captured at Austin Tuesday night, and is now awaiting his trial at his now quarters in tho County Jail, Tho tram leaving tho city at 9:15 p. m. was boarded by a brace of these characters Wednes day evening. A close watch was kept upon tbara by tho conductor, and it is not known that they succeeded in victimming any out. As tbo train was nearing Oak Park they Icayod fcom it, and made their escape. Roing uotllod by tho conductor, Mr. Thompson made purmit, but was unanlo to overtake tho tblovcs. It it probable that they are tho same persons whosucoeodod iu making their escape Tuesday niglt at Austin. These men ate doubtless well lijiovn to the employes of tho road, and It will bo dm to their negligence if tho thieves are por nriltid much longer to infest tbo trains lu as open a manner as they have lately done. A trunkon man, who gnvo his namo as Moyer, and bin residence nsßoohollo, was put oil tho 11:16 train Wednesday night.

A Queer Duel* from the LouiactlU Courier-Journal, A rather mysterious affair occurred a few nights ago in tho Louisville Medical College Building, corner of Fifth and Green streets. Two of the students have been paying attention lo tho same young lady, who lives but a stone’s throw from tho Medical College, and they got into a quarrel with each other about her. It was at last proposed that each take a pistol nnd light a duel in a dark room in tho college building. Bo tho pistols woro selected, seconds chosen, and tho party, when no one wa* In tho house at night, colored a room and, locking tho door be hind thorn, prepared for tho encounter. The light was extinguished, ami, at a proper distance from each other, at the word, each tired. Thu gas was lit, and an investigation only proved that tho powder and ball had been wasted. Tho light was again extinguished, and again at the word tho pistols were again discharged. This time one of tho duelists wan found slightly wounded in tho loft arm. The honor of the medical gentlemen having boon thus satisfied, the two became friendly again ami shook hands with each other. A Now Departure.
