Bowldering Baldwin-alley from Twelfth to

advertize for sealed proposals, as follows; To
build a circular brick sewer, of four feet inte
rior diameter, ta pass the water under tbe
landing at the foot of Walnut-street, from tbe
north side of Water-street to low-water mark.
Also, on Vine-street from the north aide of

arCaasimer Knecht, Charles Mueller, and
Adam Witter were before the Police Court,
this morning, for examination on the charge of
subbing with intent to kill Anthony Miller
and Peter Dilg, and also charged with assault
and battery on William Miller. It will be re
oolleoted that the difficulty occurred a few
nights aisoe at the Banner Ward House, on
Vine-street, and came very near resulting in
the death of Dilg. It appears in evidence that
the blow received by Dilg was inflicted by
Kneoht, and that Adam Witzer flourished a
knife, but did not use it. The difficulty grew
out of Cassimer's breaking a tumbler, for
which he made remuneration, and called for
more beer, which was refused him. Several
witnesses were oalled to the stand, who testi
fied to the previous good character of tho de
fendants, but his Honor thought the testimony
warranted the holding to bail of Cassimer
Kneoht in two thousand dollars, for stabbing
with intent, &o., and one thousand dollars for
stabbing Adam Dilg; and Witzer was sentenced
to ten days in the dunceon of the i ail. on
bread and water, for assault and battery on
Wm. Miller; and Charles Miller reoeived a
like sentence for assault and battery on Adam

boat, saw the attempt, aud rescued him. The next
we hear of him la another attempt of tbe same na
ture two or three days ago, at the ferry landing at
the foot of Fifth-street, where the same forlnno at
tended him. He was taken out of the water,onrslng
his luck, and cursing his deliverer lieoause he would
not lot him drown. Tliut man ought to be accom
modated with a nap la the bed or the Ohio llivor. . .
Thk Oni Hundred Dollars' Robbbrt. On
Monday Inst flfflcor Slckey received information
that a couple of boys were scon about tit boardlng

to the missing of that $100 stolen from a boarder,
and proceeded to hunt them np. lie fonnd them in
Cincinnati, brought them over hero, and took them
to tho house to see If they were tho twain suspected
by the bottrding-honso keeper. She refused to see
them, and Intimated to Officer Dickoy that he bad
better be nliont his business, which was all tho ro

Thb Simuirp and his DgLiNQURNTS; Sheriff
Anlibrooke looked rnther cross yesterday, when we
Kaveiim a call, and when we askod him the reason,
he replied that there wore a groat many delinquents
who had not yet paid their taxes, many of whom
wero residents of Cincinnati. We also gathered
from lilm that to those bills pastduo, would be added,
la the course ef a week or two, fifty per cent.,
and that a little time only would ensue when he
would sei7.o both personal property nnd real estate,
and soil it at public action to sutlsfy claims, and that
his receipt fur real estate would bo a good title to tho
In Grfat TRinrjL.vTioN. "We met 'Squire
Alnutt yesterdny morning, and lie appeared to bo In
a pnek of trouble about a loss he linn just discovered.
Some felonious rascal lmil entered his office and car
rled away a volume of tho city laws, which, to him.
he being a member of tho City Council, was of im
mense value. The worst of it is, ho says, ho don't
know how ho cbu replace It.
Stolen Horsb. Our City Marshal, Mr.
Cook, received word from Ironton, 01do,aday ortwo
ago, stating that a horse had beon stolen from that
town, aud requested him to lend assistance In dis
covering tho thief, nnd the recovery of the horse, Mr,
Cook yesterday visited ono of the horse auction sin
bios on Fifth-street, in Cincinnati, when hewas In
formed tho horse had been sold a short time previous
to his arrival, hut was told that if lie would deposit a
like amount with the auctioneer, that tho horse sold
fortheaninial would boretnrned to him. This the
marshal refused to do, as It is not in accordance with
justice for a man to bny his own horse, especially
when stolon from him. Wo think tho auctioneer is
legally accessory to the stealing of the horso, as he
refused to tell Mr. Cook who bought the horse, and
intimated, as we have previously stated, that if a
certain sum of money was given him, (the auctioneer)
the horse would be placed In Mr. Cook's possession.
If there is no law punishing the sale of stolen horses,
wo think thero ought to beone, just as soon as pos
sible. Rathee Strange. A horse and boggy, both
In a dilapidated condition, wore fonnd yestorday
morning, about a mile and a Jiulf back of Newport,
near tho little Alexandria Pike, in a mud bole. The
buggy was badly smashed, and thcanimul, which was
a black mare, had beon thro in such a manner that
if not rescued from where sho was, sho wonld have
soon perished, How the "team" came to bo in such
a situation la a mystery and likely to remain so, aa
nolthor the remnants of the vehicle nor horse have
beon claimed asyot. We presume the spibits must
have had an agency in the rather mysterlons affair.

Didn't Like It. A Teutonic Individual,
named Henry Groto, was yesterday arrested for creak
ing a disturbance In a coffee-house kept by another
Toutonlo resldenterof our city, named tanibort Day,
sear the head of Moniuouth-streot. He was imme
diately tried before 'Squire Payne, and fined 93 and
costs. Being somewhat under tneinuuonco or liquor
be refused to pay the fine, saying he would go to jail
first. . Accordingly, Officer Morton marched him off
to tbe jug. After remaining there a very short time,
he wisely concluded to settle the account choosing
rather to pay the fine and costs than to Uro in the
detestable so-called jail. The jail is a disgrace to
Kentucky Town Bam. Clur. This club
nlayod another match among themselves yesterday

The Mouth of the Mississippi—The Suit
for $150,000.
the suit of the Qovernmem, against the sureties of
Craig A Bightors, contractors for cleaning out the
obstructions at the mouth of tlx Mississippi Ulvor,
make it necessary that the public should understand
tho facta connected with tho transaction, particu
larly sinco It must appear that the suit is Improvi
dent, and that Government has no just claim agiilnst ;

whereby un nil bars -and other obstruction, could be

: Uiivmg,ii,.eeriirodticcontract, we wontdlrotlf ii
to New Orleane, laid our plaus before tho capitalists
of that city, aud asked for pecuniary aid to carry oa 1 '
the work. It involved an outlay of many thousand , i
dollars, lie foil' wo were to realize anythiug on our
contract, and that bad to eomo from aomo other
source than the Government. ,
A Mr. Wm. X. Starke, of that city, oame forward. !
taking an aasitrnnioii t of tho contract, aud furnished
tliefiinda. Puridxioen months we gavo our Individual '
attention tn tbe work, spending many days and ''
nights at the llallzo, amid the storms and tropical ,
suns of that regiou, at tho risk ot health and away
from our fumiliea, At length we were gratified te , ,
Hud that our labors were rewarded by a complete ,
triumph. TlioUovorninont had an officer in obargs .'i
of their Interests, at tho Belize, with power to de
termine when' It whs fulfilled, and report upon ths
progress and general management of tho work. Ha ,
make a citn-lul examination, and reported that we
had fulfilled our contract.aud tho work was accepted
by tbe Government. Mr. Starke, accompanied by
one of iih, went to Washington to receive the pay-
mentof SIX,OM, but wo thero met with difficulties.'
The sureties, It. At. Corwine, Judge Corwiue, aud ,
Wiswell, gavo tho Department written notice not
pay the mouey to Starke or tho contractors until tbe
question of their liability as sureties wss settled,
they claiming that they were discharged, by tin acta .
of tho Government, In extunding the time for tbe
com pletlon of the work to the contractors or Starktv
without havingconsent of tbesureties. SuoU exten
sions were n ale twice ..
Thus the ui .ttor stood for some time the sureties ,
relusli.gto withdraw the objection and they never
dM withdraw it. Notwithatauding all this, Starke
got the money from the Government, and the
undersigned have now a litigation with hlia.
lor o just nun uoneit eecouut or II, pending.
at Mew Orleans. By some means, wbolly un
known to us, the Government, since they paid
money. Iiave lit the work to another conipauy, whe
expect tu accomplish, what we did accvmpilsh, by
the old, and exploded process of dreilgiug. By the
terms of Ills contract with us, Sfarks was bound to do
all that we agreed, with the Government, tOttoi and
we will sea that ho does it, or, out ol his lorse estate,
make tiruner comDcneation. ' We are ready now. and

wo shall be prepared to show at all tlinos. - -
If the Government has ignored our oontract by
tho connivance or consent of Starke, or for any
other cause, giving mi no notice thersof, or opportu
nity to repair any preacn or Biarae, it is no iauit ol
ours; but nevertheless we shall, as we aro Indeed
nuw doing, at Mew Orleans, thoroughly invsstiguto
this matter, with a view to vindicate the principal of
our plan, and to initniuiiy iiiiiui our contract wtia
