woiamen, unaer the dureotion of the (Jinoin

workmen in large numbers were set to work
on Fourth-street, at the. above intersection.
and proceded with great rapidity to take ud
the bowlders, open the street, put down their

At this stage of the proceedings oertain
property holders living near or owning; build
ings on the line sued out sn injunction before
Judge storer, in bonds of $10,000, commanding;

We learn that process was not properly
served, but so soon as the proper officers of the
road heard of the Judge s proceedings they
stopped ineir nanas.
The street is left in an impassable oon dltion;
but, if the traok-layers could have worked a
few hours longer they would hare had the
nignway nicely shaped up sgain.
The names of the gentlemen who sued out

Opposiiioh Ratification Miktiico Last
Night. The Court-street meeting last night
was largely attended, as muoh so as its most
sanguine friends could have anticipated or desired.-
Two stands had been erected for the
accommodation of the speakers, one at the end
of the Markot-house, another not far from
Main-street. At an early bear the meeting
was organised by the appointment of the fol
lowing officers: Preiident, N. Bartlett. . Vice
Preixdentt, Geo. Shillito, Miles Greenwood, J.

Davis, C. W. Rowland, E. T. Carson, Robert
Hoses, Dr. R. S. Newton and F. Meyer. See
retariei, James Warnieh and W. H. MoKinney.
' Speakiaz was commencod at the west end
by Messrs. Cox' and Lippett, who occupied
the time for a few minutes each. The Hon.
Robert O. Sohenck having arrived, was then
introduced, and spoke for some time, when he
was interrupted for near half an hour by the
constant advent of processions, accompanied
by bands of musio, transparencies, ic' The
"flying artillery" companies were a conspic
uous feature of .the evening, and each com
pany announced its arrival by the firing of
cannon. At nan-past eignto ciocK me street
was crowded from Main to Vine. The num
ber present could not have been less than
fifteen or twenty thousand. : '
Speaking oommenoed at the eastern stand,
and Mr. Bohenok oontinued his speeoh from
the western. He was followed by Mr. Cor-
wln, who was so unwell as to be desirous of
remaining silent, but not so afflicted as to
silence the humor so natural to him when ones
At the eastern stand Messrs. Jaoobi and
Tafel addressed the meeting In German, and
Mr. Nicholas and Dr. R. S. Nswton in
English. .

Probable Murder A Mii Stabbed in the
Briabt Escape or the Perpetrator. Late
yesterday afternoon a German named Frank
weight, a butcher, in the employ of Mr. Frank
Boreeford, had some words with a man named
John Finnegan, who lives In Covington. Ky.,
when Finnegsn drew a knife and plunged It
into Weight's breast, inflicting, it is feared, a
mortal wound, He was oonveyed to the resi
dence of Mr. Beresford and Doctor Fries sent
for, who gave it as his opinion that he could
not live until morning. Finnegan Immediately
nea, it is supposed, to itentueky. we under
stand that the difficulty originated as follows
A little boy was standing near the parties,
smoking a olgar. Finnegan tried to take the
oigar away from him, when Weight interfered,
and told him he should not impose upon a boy.
Words ensued, when Finnegan drew a' knife
and Infiioted the blow.
Advance in Almanac Litibatorb. We
observe that the astronomical department of
Dr. Roback's Scandinavian Almanac, for
1860, was prepared by one of the first astono-
mers of this or any other country Professor
0. M. Mitchell, of the Cincinnati Observatory.
Scattered through it are items on rural
affairs, from the pen of Mr. Haaeltme, Presi
J i -e 1 1 . : Tr l r i. , n ,
This would seem to be a decided advance on
the old humdrum style, in the IndispenBible
article of almanacs, with which the com
munity have been wearied fer the last dozen
years, we presume mat most ot our enter
prising druggists have Dr. Boback's medi
cines and almanacs. Dr. Boback's office is
at No. East Fourth-street.

&rIn Philadelphia, the "Committee

issAOLTiNO a Woman. Ellen Dodd,
woman of bad repute, nppeared in the Polioe
Court, yesterday, and charged two young men,
Charles B. Davis and Daniel Suliok, with
abusing her in a shameful manner. She stated
that she was walking along Elm-street at two
o'clock: yesterday morning; that she Inquired
for a place to sleep, when she was approached
by these young men, and that, under pretense
of finding lodging for her, they oonveyed her
to the levee and abused her la a shameful
manner. They were fined five dollars and
oostt each.' It would seem, from the light
fiunishment, that Judge Lowe placed , very
Ittie confidence in the statement of Miss
Dodd. . ... '. ..,

A Singula Cabs. There is a younir ladv
residing in the West End who has no less than
seventeen lovers. For several days past they
have been quarreling among themselves as
who had the best claims to her affection. Last
evening they ehanoed to meet, and, after talk
ing the matter over, agreed to submit the case
to Squire John JloFall. The Squire settled
tne matter, outside ol his legal capacity,
giving the young lady into the hands of one
the party, who, by-the-by, was fortunate
enough, to possess her daguerreotype. All
hands were satisfied. :

An "Old Bot." One of the enumerators

passing a counterfeit bill of the Dank of Kentucky
on Francis Niemen,
The prosecuting witness deposed that his house la
near the Little Miami Railroad Depot, that en the
Stbof August Leech passed tbe bill (a one-dollar
counterfeit of the Hank of Kentucky) at his house,
where he called for a drink. Honey was In his eom-
Iiany. It appeared from tho other testimony that
loth these defendants were intoxicated; that they
tad oome up the river in a steamboat, and were abont
proceeding to Pittsburg by railroad on tho day they
were arretted. They changed billsofasimllarcliar
acter in other houses, in all to the amount of about
eight dollars. A portion of it they afterward re
deemed. Several counterfeits wore found in Honey's posses
sion, aud some good money also. Leech had only
one counterfeit bill. Devin bad some of this kind
of money in his possession. Ho was larrested when
in the cars; acknowledged then that he had beon
traveling with the others, and eaid they were in his
employment aa cooks, but that ho know nothing as

Leech was apparently about eighteen years old.
The others were middle-aged men, and were of
respectable appoarnnce.
In bis argument, tbe Prosecuting Attorney did

Confidknci Wedding Two Ofvigialb Takkn
In. Yesterday afternoon a message came to tbe
office of the County Clerk, asking him to oblige a
couple, (who had fled from the stern rule of papa and
mama,) by going to the Madison House, and issue a
marriage license, in the greatest possible haste, lest
the truant couple be overtaken. The mosnener
stated that the proper official, in the person of Jnilge
Movar, was ready to perform the ceremony, and was
only waiting the proper authority to do so.
Kemp Carter, the Clerk, now determined to outdo
himself in politeness, and not wishing to have two
willing hearts sundered in twain by unnecessary de
lay, started for the Madison House with a blank mar
riage license and bond in his pocket, and, on arriv
ing at tbe hotel, did up tbe business with the great
est dispatch. His xeal, no doubt, arose from purely
unselfish motives possibly he imagined himself In
the same position as the expectaut groom, and he
pictured to bis own mind the disappointment he
should feel If such were the case, and If, just as the
Rrlw was within his grasp, he should be compelled
see it snatched away.
Of course he thought that if the old man came
and prevented the marriage be would lose ono dol
lar and Afty cents for the license, never entered his
mind. Mai rimony Is too sacred a thing, in his eros,
to pormlt him to bring his mind down to such
groveling matters as dollars and cents. -
The ceremony was nerformed. and ih. hannv
groom asked the obliging Judge hlg price. Of course
no charge was made, but tbe gentleman mi told to
unc uib iituaaui-t iiq iusu.midii hi., uo wo. UBrU Up,
and asked the judge tf three dollars would be enough,
and was told that It would. Hiswbole billthen was,
to Judge Mooar, for performing the oeremony, three
dollars; to Komp Carter, for liconse, one dollar and
fifty cents; hotel hill, one dollar.
Taking out an X. he stated that he wonld m down
and leave tbe whole amonnt with the clerk of the
notei. uoing 10 moomce, ne nanued that gentleman
the ten, and received nine dollars in change nothing
being said about the other money. Of course the
juugo and lounry view, suppoeingall right, did not
Jo lor their money till tbe couple were gone, when
hey had the satisfaction of discovering that they
were left minus.
The couple bore the names of Winfleld Bcott
M and Josephine 0 , and balled from the
interior of a neighboring State.
