of which we gave last Friday. They were
conveyed to the Hammond-street Station-
house, and will appear before Judge Lowe to
day. Molodeon Hall appears to be a favorite

fact that it has two entrances, one on Fourth

previous to the above operation the same
game was played upon a gentleman from
Cleveland, at the same piaoe.

ExAHiHATioff or Dr. Foster roa the Shoot-
inq or Charles Harris. The examination of
the prisoner was commenced yesterday morn
ing at eight o clock, beiore Justices Bine ana
Connelly. The prosecution was conducted by
Mr. Anderson, and the defense by Messrs.
Helm, Boyd, Fearons and Berry.
Aitnougn we do not intend to comment
upon the testimony, a few words by way of
preface will be proper to a full understand
ing; of the case. It appears that Harris
owned a house and lot, on which there were
several mortgages, amounting to about $1,800;
ine last or these wat held by an eiueny iaay
named Higgenbothem. The lot was ordered
to be told at Master Commissioner's sale, and
Mrs. H., fearing the property would not
bring the amount, and knowing that unless
it did the would be ont out, employed Dr.
Foster to bid the turn of $1,800 for the prop
erty for her. This he did, and this being
lumoient to save ber, tne property was
knocked off to Mr. Harris himself, who bid a
trifle higher. We will now go on with tht
knowledged any

J. Baughman oalUd Was present on the
night of the shooting; Dr. Foster, Mr. Harris

any more bills let them be presented, and he
would pay them. Dr. Jr. said he wat able to
pay his debts, bat Harris was not able to pay
bis; this was denied by Harris; Harris made
use of no offensive language (thia tentenoe
was ruled out). Harris said to Foster, you
are armed I am not: Foster said I am armed.
have got a pistol and know how to nse it; he
then drew it, and Harris tried to take it from
him, and then the Dr. find the pistol; Harris
drew a ttool, whereupon Owen Tamer tried to
trt them. When just out of the door, the
ir. fired again, and Harris threw tome
orokery after him; in the ttreet the Dr. fired a
third ball, which hit Harris. When he first
drew the pistol, it was in a menaoing manner.
The stool was thrown after tbe pistol wat
fired the first time; witness did not hear Harris
use insulting language; witnest wat standing
near tbe parties.
Cross-examined The fuis ooenrred abont
seven o'olook, on Saturday last. Dr. Foster,
Dokes and Harris oome together, and talked a
minute or two; they were talking about the
payment or something, witness did not know
what. When Foster went out of the house,
did not know if he was knocked out, or went
out of bit own record. (All the other faots
eliolted were same at in examination in chief.
Mr. Voket talltd Was going to see the
Sheriff and met Dr. Foster, who went with him;
Dr. Foster told him that Harris had not paid
all the costs of a certain law suit whioh had

overheard him and said he had; said he would
show the reoeipts; some words passed and
Harris oharged tht Dr. with having a pistol;
Dr. said he had and would use it, and oould
kill him too. (Here the witness said he got
soared and hid behind some boxes.) He heard
the firing and saw a ehair raised, but wai so
exolted he did not know what did happen.
Cross-examined Costs talked or by parties
were in Court of Appeals, abont a brick-house;
Harris laid ne thongnt it was an paid, out ir
wat not he would pay it; Dr. Foster said Har
ris had paid his (Harris's) but not his
(Foster's); Harris said if not paid he was good
for it; Foster doubted it; the pistol did not fire
till tbe chair was raised; Harris made orooks
fly pretty fast between shots; Harrit talked
coolly about the receipts before the thootlng;
Harris is an excitable man.
Mr. Dennison ealltd Difficulty occurred at
about seven and a quarter o'olook; witnest wat

door; heard Foster say "keep away or I'll
shoot yon;" witness oaught Foster, who got
away; beard report of pistol, and also saw
orooks flying, and saw Harris with ohair; Fos
ter went to the door and Harris followed;
second pistol fired on pavement, third in itreet
ten feet from It; did not see all, was confused;
did not see pistol fired, but heard it; Harris
appeared to be getting a rock when Foster
fired third ttms; did not hear what was said
before Foster told Harris to keep away or
would thoot him; the pistol was fired before
the orookt were thrown; heard a man tell
Footer not to thoot again, (after H. had fallen)
and he said he would net, though he had two
more loads for him.
Cross-examined Hat been acquainted with
Harrit eight years; has the reputation of being
a violent and dangerous man; witness did not
know this personally; the firing of the pistol
and raising the chair were nearly at the tame
time, but pistol fired slightly first; Foster re
treated and Harrit followed.
John Taylor tailed Saw Foster with a re
volver en the ferry-boat on Saturday after

thing like a pistol in his pocket; asked him
about it, and the Doctc: replied, "Charley
Harris says be is going to kill me, and
want to be prepared for him."
Captain William Air was called and testi
fied to the tame as John Taylor, and said
he heard the Doctor make no threats.
Dr. Thornton talltd Is one of Harris's phy
sicians; the ball entered haunch bone, near
the top, and the ball went, as near as could
be ascertained, slightly forward and down
ward; wound not Targe enough to get finger
in; oouia not reaca ouiiec witn instrument;
thought best not to probe too much; Harris's
general condition is now favorable; wound
slightly inflamed, about same aa usual
gun-shot wounds; not at this time in abso
lute danger. (The Court refused to allow him
to enter into secondary considerations
probabilities as to what it would come to.)
Vr. Shaltr ealUd Not more than a gill
blood came from tbe woend; had only
slight fever ; (the rest of his evidence was
about the same as Dr. Thornton's. Rep).
Mr. Siddani called Heard the shots,
did not tee them; undertook to hold Foster;
heard him say he had two more shots
Mr. Anderson then offered the affidavit
Mr. Harrit at testimony, which was ruled
out. The Commonwealth then retted.
Dr. Zaveeon, of Cincinnati,ealled Has known
Foster eight or nine yoars ; has been his phy
sician . his breath is not up to the natural
standard ; has asthma and hemorrhago of
lungi ; could not bear a protracted physi
cal struggle; examined him a day or two
with instruments.
Mr. JEfaynuM rt eafW Had a conversation
with Harris concerning Foster a few days be
fore difficulty; Harris was hostile to F., and
either said he would kill bim or h ought
be killed, and he could not remember which.
Cross examined Is a narticalar friend of
Harris, but considers him insane.
John Colt tailed Harris asked wltntss if
he had heard from the salt of the house by the
matter oommlsiloner ; laid the Dr. wat a dirty
dog ; had run the home up on him to $200 or
$300 more than it ought to have brought, but
ne would be even with him one of tbete days.
Witness told this to Foster, and told him to be
on his guard; told him as a joke.
Crosi-examined Conversation alluded to
took plaoe week ago on Monday.
Judge Boyd called Had conversation with
H. several months before difficulty. H. told
witness that Foster was a damned rasoat, and
ought to be "settled;" did not know exsotly
what he meant ; told Dr. Foster to avoid H.,
as he wat a detperate man ; had drawn a pis
tol on Hawkint at one time, and alto a
hatohet on a man named Williams some years
ago. Harris' wordt (in connection with his
violent disposition) appeared to imply that he
intended violence. A week ago met Mr. Har
ris ; H. spoke of the tale of bit property; laid
it brought $1,800, run up by Dr. Footer, and
taid every time F. bid he (H.) felt like throw
ing a bowlder Just to ttop hit mouth till the
sale wat over, and he hid a notion to do It yet;
did not tell It to the Dr. lest it might result
Cross-examined Understood the meaning of
"settled" was "killed;" only wanted to throw
the bowlder "by way of keeping him quiet;"
thinks if H. would attack a man he would not
hesitate to kill him ; he it very unforgiving.
Afrs. Higgmbolham tailed Dr. Foster was
bidding in behalf of witness, who held a last
mortgagt, and wished to have it bring enough
to cover her debt, or buy it herself.
Sheriff Helm called Foster took the pistol he
had on ferry-boat over to get it loaded for
witness. Dr. F. told witness he was fearful
of an attack from H. Witness, by request,
wat with defendant several nights visiting pa
tients. It Sheriff, and went at both effioer and
friend. Foster wat afraid of Harrit.
Crois-examined Advised Foster to arm
himself advice given as an oflioer.
Charlee Todd called Been acquainted with
Harrit tea years general oharaoter desper
ate. Jonathan Barnee tailed Fourteen monthl
ago heard H. say he oarried pistol and slung
shot for Dr. Foster, and would have killed
him if he had not baoked out beard nothing
Cross-examined He said he went expresily
to kill him at the time referred to; reason was
he laid Dr. bad cheated him out of hit prop
erty; witness did not remonstrate, as he knew
Harrit to be a dangeroot man.
Joieph E. Finer called Knom Harrit ten
yean exoitable and dangorout man.
Orott-examlned Often teen him in a very
exoited ttate did "not tee any particular
initanoet, but the Hawkins oast, but Harris
bad told him of tome.
After argument of counsel, the prisoner was
diicharged. Considerable feeling is manifested
by tne rrtendt or Doth partiet.
A Mar Diss is Jail from tbb KrviOTi or
Woohos Riorivrd BiroRR Iroarcrratioh.
Officer Dloky last night arrrested, and brought
to jail, a man named William H. Nichols,
who, at has been ascertained, hails from Olln
tcnvllle, Bourbon County, who was laboring
under a fit of deUrium tremens and whole per
son, particularly his faoo, bore unmistakable
marks of violence. He oame to Hen Ellison's
hotel, on Monday morning last, and stated that
he had been robbod in Cinoinnati of $200 and a
watob ; but when questioned, appeared to wish
to conceal the matter. He accoanted for the
bruties on his person by saying that he fell
down stairs, at the Madison House, Cinoinnati.
Early yesterday morning, his case being oriti
cal, Dr. Hays was oalled in to give medioal ad
vioe. About tlx o'olook, be talked rationally
to Mr. Herod, the keeper of the jail ; in a few
minutet afterward, when oalled upon by hit
physioian, he was apparently sleeping, but upon
a near approach, wat found to be dead. From
papen found about hit person, and from two
acquaintances, Ii. C. Rankin, and John S.
Eggleston, of this plaoe, not only his name and
residence, but the following additional partic
ulars were learned:
He was a widower, and a man of means. He
had been in the dry-Koods busineis at Clinton-
villa, and retired. He had been in Cincinnati
tlnoe about the first of October, and on tbe 4th
had paid Day A Matlook, on Pearl street, the
sum of $5. He was always regarded as an
honorable man, and prompt in meeting hit Ob
Mirations, and highly respeottd.
We vitited tbe oorpie in the jail, and round
the eyet and faoe very badly braised, as if he
bad received'a severe beating. The woundt
oould never have been oausei by a fall; their
locality entirely pretindet soon, a supposition
One dollar in paper, and tome silver ohange,
was all tbat was round on nit person.
Coroner Hughes held an inquest over the
romains, and the jury brought in a verdict of
death from some unknown violence, it is
evident that he had been beaten while in
Cincinnati, but where, no one can now tell,
and nerhaos it may ever remain a mystery,
The corpse has been ordered to oe torwarooo
to Paris, Bourbon County, by his friendt,
Rankin and EjrtrleBton, and will betaken
thither by A. P. Rose, undertaker, of thii
Judging from appearances, he it about fifty
years of age. It is to be hoped that hit ex
ample, tad and deplorable as it it, will serve
as a warning to all against visiting those
haunts 01 iniquity, so common in every city.
Night before last, about six o'clock, a man
by the name of Morris Mellally, purposely
fired a loaded pistol In a crowd on Madison'
street, nearly opposite the Madison House,
and fortunately without injuring any ene,
though it is a great wonder that he did not.
He was arrested by Sheriff Aihbrook, and
handed over to Deputy Marshal Riff, who
lodrod him in iail for safe keeping until
yesterday morning, when he was fined $32
00, and in detault 01 its payment, wasioogeo
in jail again.
Several cases of minor importance were
tried in the Police Court yesterday morning,
