A man named James McLaughlin, who re
aides near the corner of Bank and Freoman
Itreets, early Saturday morning last came
homo drunk and commenced abusing a child
and threatening its lifo, when his wife inter
fered, and thereby became herself the object
of .his demoniac and unnatural fury. Her
soroa.tns aroused the neighbors, who ran to the
house, and one of them, named Honry lrocne,
interfered, and requested tho fiend to desist.
MoLau&'hlin drew a pistol, and ordered tirooso
to leave the house. Groeno,howerer, knocked
it from hvahand. Finding himself foiled in
his effort to shoot, he seized a cleaver nnd
struck him over the hoad several times, injur
ing him so toverely that it is very doubtful if
he reoovers.

during the affray, was arrested and held to bail
in tho sum of one thousand dollar?, for his ap
pearance on Tuesday next. Not finding secu
rities, he was com uitted to jail. Tho princi

The Board of Managers of tho Hamilton County
Agricultural Society publish a circular, in
which thoy state their relsons for increasing
the price for members' tiokets. The chief one
of which is, that the Society is now laboring
under a debt of some$9,0(IO, with interest accru-
ing. Ia view of the fact that most other
socioties in our neighboring oounlies and
States charge from $2 to ?'5 for niombers'
tickets, they were induced to believo that a
liberal view would be taken of thoir position,
and that the citizens of our county would eome
forward and lend their aid in removing the
Soolety from debt and assist in beautifying the
grounds, &c. Inasmuch as a goner al dissatis
faction is expressed in regard to the increased
price of members' tickets, the Board have re
considered the vote and roduced family or
members' tickets to one dollar. The Ninth
Annual Fair will commence on Tuesday, the
13th Inst.

Cowhidei). A hat merchant of this city,
named P. Ulmer,was oowhidedin a beer-house,
at Louisville, last Friday, by a man named
Frank Fisher. The circumstances which led
to the affair, says the Louisville Dtmocrat of
Saturday, are as follows :
The said Uliner settled with his creditors at
forty cents on the dollar, and withheld a note
of ninety dollars drawn by Fisher in bis favor.
After several years, Ulmor presented tho note
for settlement, and Fisher was willing to pay
the faco, but not the interest. A eorrospond
enoa ensued, resulting in Ulmer writing a
very insulting lotter to Fisher. Yesterday the
parties met In Phillip's bocr-house, and Fisher
immediately applied the lash to Ulmer's back.
Tho latter fled before his wrathy assailant, and
wbon Inst seen was making rapid strides to
ward the mail-boat.
