The Ottman Case.?The equitable- attach ment suit of the Uoited States against the estate of William H. Ottman, for the recovery of monies alleged to have bceo stolen from the Treasury and fradulently received by Oitman, knowing it to be stolon property, by virtue of which attachment certain stocks in the Ger man B inking C<>., and iu the Alexandria Marine Riilway Co., and a sum of mouey ou deposite with the Banking Co., were seized upon and held, was called in the Corporation Court to day which time had been set apart for tho hearing of the cause and whou it was sup posed a motiou would be made on befalf of the defendant to quash the attachment. The Government was represented by ex-Judge Wilson, U. S. District Attorney, L. L. Lewis, and Col. M. D. Ball, and Messrs. Francis L. Smith, of this city, and Richard T. Merrick and II. K. Elliott, of Washingiou, were pres ent, as attorneys for Oitman, who, for techni cal reasons decliued then appearing as counsel in the cause. The attorneys for the Govern ment filed a motion under the Uoited States statute to remove the cause to tho Circuit Court of the United States, but subsequently withdrew it for tear of complicating the suit in the vexatious anomalies and intri cacies now existing under the modes of prac tice as prescribed by the laws of his State. The defendant's counsel, for the present, waived the motion to quash, and the case was continued at rules, where it will probably re main an indefinite time, or at least uotil it gets io such a condition as to be susceptiblo of being removed to the Uoited States Court. Verdant Bridal Party.?There arrived at the Maosion House yesterday afternoon, and left on the midnight traiu for Fredericksburg, a bridal party, the most unsophisticated, probab ly, that ever stopped at that hotel before. It coosisted of a bride, the groom, and a grooms man. The bride was a pretty looking child, not fifteen years old, who was neatly and taste fully dressed, but the groom and groomsman, tho gawkicst lookiug pair that ever left their native heath. It was a runaway trip that had been interrupted a week before by the father of the bride, who had caught her at a neighbor's liduse just previous to her starting oft, boxed her jaws and sent her back home. But the sccoud attempt had been more successfu'; they had boen married in Washington, and weic on their return to their home io Stafford county. At seven o'clock in the evening, after they had been sitting in the parlor of the hotel for about an hour, the groom came down to the clerk's desk; told the clerk that he'd been up all the night before; that he reck oned he'd go to bed, and asked for a room with two beds io it, sayiog that the whole party in tended sleeping in one room. The clerk in formed him that such slecpiug arrangements as he proposed were not io accordance with the rules of the house, but that he could give him and his wife one rouui and the groomsman another, aud with tbat unsatisfactory under standing he had to be contented, and do more was seen of him uotil the servant called in time to take the coach for the depot Corporation Court -Judge E.

Mulatto Waif.? A mulatto child, about six weeks old?girl?was found lying upoo the front step of the house of Mr. John Davay, on St. Asaph street, ODe door north of Queen street, about nine o'clock last night. 1l was wrapped ia a blanket, and though its appear ance indicated that it had not been cared for properly, it was perfectly well and hearty, and its lusty .^quails led to its discovery. Mr. Duvey uot being at home, information of the affair was scut to police headquarters, to which place the baby was carricd this morning, by JSully Carringtoo, a colored woman who had taki n care of it during the night, aod, who lives in the neighborhood. Several people, one of theui a white woman, applied for it this morning, but the Mayor directed that it should be left in Sally Carrington's care uutil further orders, aod that the latter be paid fur her ser vices. Bask Ball.?The match game of base ball that was played at Fort Foot yesterday be tween a picked nine of this city, whose names were mentioned in the Gazette of that date, and a picked nine from the garrison of that Fort, was won by the former, the score stand ing 27 to 2G. Alter the game the Alexandrians, wlio were the guests, were hospitably enter taiued, engaged in rifle shooting and other sports, and at night were entertained at a ball given to them, at which many ladies residing in the neighborhood of the Fort were present. The festivities closed at two o'clock this morn ing, when the guests were rowed back home by their hosts. Police Report.?Affairs at police head quarters this morning were unusually quiet, the only thing that occasioned any talk beiag an unknown baby that had been found on the street, and that was put in charge of a colored woman named Sally Carringtoo,umil some infor mation concerning it could, if possible,be obtain ed. II. A. VVciuskey, a foreign stranger, put in jail while laboring under temporary insanity, was released as ho had written a letter to the Mayor, the contonts of which proved that he had completely regained his senses. Cow Wake.?Several nights ago some cows slecpiug on the railroad track, near Colross, were tub over by a train of cars aod killed. Last night about twenty-five cows assembled at the fatal spot aod held a wake over the blood aod entrals of the slaughtered. Such bellow ing, dust-tossing and goring were never before heard or seen in that part of the city, and so wild wore the maddened auimals that passing trains had to stop and make tho train band* drive them from tho track in order to save them from being run over. C. & 0. Canal.?The last monthly report of the president of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Company, submitted at Annapolis, yes terday, is a good comparative showing. The revenue accrued for the month of August was $(4,635.38, an increase over August, 1874, of $ 105,53. The coal tonnage for the month was 119,349 tons, an increase of 12,475 tons over August, 1874.

The Nuncio claims the fulfillment of the con cordat, which forbids the exorcise of any non Cathoiic creed; requires the transfer of the su perintendence over edueatiou to the clergy, and pledges (he co-operation of the secular power iu suppressing heretical teaching and literature, lie says one of the causes of civil war is.the way in which religious unity has been mis understood by previous government*; for those reasons, in view of these consequences, the lloly See believes itself strictly obliged to present these observations to the government. The Times'correspondent add*: no doubt the presen tation of this audacious claim at a time whim a liberal cabinet has just beeu installed implies a threat that if the government reject it the blessing of the church will be definitely trans ferred to Don Carlos aud peace retarded in every possible way. London, Sept. 10.-?A Berlin special to the Times says: The recent successes of the Insurgents render the continuance of guerrilla warfare uutil spring possible. In such a ease it will be difficult to restrain the Servians from participating. Austria with an eye to these contingencies has issued orders regulating the supply of horses in the event of a mobilization.

Louisville, Sept. 16.?A dispatch to the | Louisville detectives reports the wouuding and j capture of one of the men who recently robbed the Huntington, VV. Va., Bank in broad day light, of $10,000. The capture was made at Pice Hill, Ky., by two resideuts, named Dillon, dur iog Tuosday night. It seems the four men who committed the robbery in Huntington were pursued into Kentucky, the news of thcirfiight being telegraphed ahead of them every day with instructions to effect their capture. Ou Tuesday word was received at Pine Hill that lour robbers, supposed to belong to the James Younger band, were near that place. The two Dillons armed themselves and sat up at night on the look out for the outlaws. At 12 o'clock four men were seen by them coming towards their home. They opened the door and asked what they wanted. Only two men were now seen, | aud without answering, they fired on the Dil ; Ions, but without injury. Shots were returned and ene of the outlaws fell. At this juncture the two others appeared iu the rear of Dillon's, firiog as they approached, but without effect. The Dillon's thou retreated to the house firing as they did so. About a dczeu shots were fired. When all was over three of the men had Hod, leaving their companion, whose appearance answers to the description of Cole Younger, the Missouri outlaw. Democratic Stale Convention. Oswego, N. Y., Sept. 16. ?The Democrat ic State Convention met here to-day, and was called to order by ex Lieut. Gov. Allen C. Beach, on whose motion Daniel Magoue was made temporary chairman. In his address he said tbe living questions that arc now before the people of the several States for examination and decision are to be settled in the year 1876, paramount among which is the financial ques tion, deeply alLciiug, as it does, every busiuess interest. The evils ol the depreciated currency under which the country now suffers, natural.y flowed out of a departure from a sound inter pretation of the Constitution, prohibiting the States, and by implication, the general govern ment, from making anything but gold aud sil ver a legal tender. Another Vacille Utiilroiid. St. IjOULS, Sept. 10.?A mooting of promi nent citizens was held at. ihe Southern Hotel last night to adopt measures for calling a Na tional convention, to be held in this city, tor the pui pose of memorializing Congress to grant such legislation as shall secure the construction o( another railroad to the Pacific Coast, and to consider means for the reduction of the cost of transportation between the Atlantic and Paci fic, the lakes and the gulf, and between the Mississippi Valley and the Atlantic seaboard. A resolution wus adopted to the effect that a National railroad convention be held at St. Louis on the 23rd of November next, and, that the chair appoint an executive committee of fifteen, with power to appoint a sub-committee to carry the resolution into effect. Colorado Election. Denver, Col., Sept. 10.?The returns of the election in this territory comc in very slowly. Arapahoe county elects a majority of the Republican ticket. The Democrats elect one of two Councihnen and one of four mem bers of the House. They also elect their County Treasurer. Last fall this county gave over 300 Democratic m.-ijority. The result in the territory is doubtful, both parties claiming the Legislature. The Governor has issued a call for an election on the 25th of October for members of the Constitutional Convention, which will meet on the 20th of December. The Republicans claim they will have a good majority in the Convention. Imlian Fair. Muskogee, I.
