o'clock: that I was at the coffee-house;Patsola

hard words passed they were drinking beer
and talking together; Carrovant treated the
whole orowd,I think; there was another man
with Patsold outside the house; Patsold had
too much beor; he made the remark to that
man that he would bare to kill some one
before he went to bed; Carrovant was a little
diunk; Keokor was not; Carrovant, Uhl and
Keeker were all in the coffee-house at the
time Patsold made . the remark outside.
Keoker told me that Carrovant did'nt know
him at all; that .he got hurt while taking
Corrovant home; he said that Patsold had
given him the first stab; told mo this five or
six times. . i
Dr. Wade described tbe wounds of Keeker;
in the abdomen and in the left lung, between
tbe fourth and fifth ribs ; considered the man's
life in imminent danger from the abdominal
Wound ; hois able to converse; the probability
it thathli oondltion will be shanged in a very

at the time the latter was stabbed; after Keoker
cried out that he was stabbed. Carrovant earns

shop, having taken Carrovant homV, when Pat
sold called Keoker a son .of a and told
bla to eome ont, and subsequently tbey had
the fist fight, and Keoker was stabbe d.
John Suart Patsold endeavored to pick a

Offinr Chumlty Arrested tbe two barbers;
they had blood on their clothes, whloh they
said was frost ths woman who was stubbed ia
the arm; they said they didn't know anything
about the difficulty at flnU i Patsold told me

pelled to defend himself, and ha had probably
used bis knife; think he was a little intoxi
cated; be bad three or four cuts on his head, or
bruises; he had been wishing his head; the
knife (exhibited in Court) was found on the
mantle pieoe; it had blood on tha point. Pat

Several other witnesses were examined,
but nothing more allotted. On motion of
Judg 8tallo,..Carrovant and Uhl wore dis

itabblpg; it wss two houses from tha coffee
house where Keeker first struck Pwtsold,
who stooped down and did not return the
blow, but cried for tbe watch; Keeker did
not say anything; the two were alone; Keeker
is a big, strong man, larger than Pataold;
saw no other fighting; didn't know Keeker
was stabbed until next morning.
Joah Jtiepler was in the eonee-nouse when
Keeker and the party eame in; they were
noisy, when the landlord told them it was
time to shut up, and they went out at the
front door; 1 went out at tbe back door; rieard
on the street after he was stabbed.
Ftttr Ull When C went home Carrovan's

Pateold; Keoker eame across the treet and
also beat Patsold; the barber's wife came up

other two men were; didn't see the stabbing;
the men followed Patsold; in the second fight
Menker struck ths first blow; during this fight
there wero four to one.

An etteneive robbery was perpetrated at

ctsoo Margantl, and Michael and Velitia Ar
sga, hare been engaged in the manufacture
and sale of Plaster of Paris Imagos in the
above-named plaoe, for! some time past, and
had succeeded in laying up some $700 in gold
and silver. Tbey conoluded to relinquish busi
ness in Lawrenoeburg and go to New Orleans.
On the day mentioned, they packed their cloth
ing, together with their money in a large
wooden chest, and walked down to the river
to make Inquiries as to a boat
They were gone about half an hour and re
turned, when they found that one of the
corners of their chest had been sswed off.
Their suspicions were aroused and the' chest
was opened, when it was discovered that some
$150 in gold ooin had been abstracted. Cir
sumstances pointed to an individual named
Nicholas Rush an Italian alto as being the
thief. He boarded in the same bouse with the
cc npany, sad when they returned from the.
rer they learned that he had left the plaoe
forthlsoity. ., . , .
Franoisoo Font arrived here yesterday morn
Ing and gottraok of him, and about half-past
five o'olook last evening, succeeded in arresting
him about one mile this side of Cheviot. He
was brought to a confectionery store. No. 210
Vine-street, and given into the hands of Officer
Jones, of the Thirteenth Ward, who oonveyed
him to the Hammond-street Station-house.
$135 SO in gold coin principally $20 pieces
were found on his psrson. The ooin was tied
up in a black silk neok-handerehief, which
Fonl at once recognized. Rush is a young
man, probably about twenty years of age, and
had been working from plaoe to place at Law
renoeburg, for about two months. . There were
some $200 in silver, and about $15 in gold, in
different parts' of the chest whloh he did not
get hold of. He will have a hearing in the
Police Court to-day.

A resolution awarding a contract for build
ing a bridge over the Whitewater Canal on
Freeman-street, to Mr. Staoy, gave rise to a

Mr. Marsh, from the Committee on Police

direoting the City Solicitor to institute pro

firebrand in the Council than the ttreet-railroad

I find thai we may still claim that ours it
the most oharitable, humane oity in the United
States. We had lost -our claim to . this
character, but it is now restored. Some years
since, a person who had not resided a year in
our oity ef Porkopolls, without a notice to
depart, could get no relief from the overseers
of the poor, if freezing or starving in the
streets. The law was changed, and relief was
allowed, in oase of extreme distress. Bnt to
be blind is now a orime; and to lead the blind,
to save him from injury, by'a young boy, also
a punishable offense. Tour paper, and the
paper of a brother editor of yours,' reports
paupers from St. Louis a oonple of distressed
looking objects. A blind - man, and a boy
let ding him, were arrested night before last,
by Officer Kulonkamp, at the Little Miami
Railroad Depot Tkey were taken before
Judge Lowe veatordav. Whan it was dis
oovored that Vuov had been released from the
St Louis fiosnltal. and their passage paid by
th. St Louts authorities to our oity, the
blind man was sent to' the City Prison for
thirty days, and the boy let off, on promise to
leave the city. ;:n . V'.'.v"-..." '..'..
Before we became so Indulgent, we treated
S supers sent here J kind ly. We sent them
aok to the honest, oharitable oity whloh sent
them here, paying their passing and giving
them money to buy food on the road.'
That this report, Messrs. Editors, was not
inserted by your direction, I am oertain, as
in the same paper you request ns, "while sit
ting by our comfortable fire-sides and enjoy
ing the luxuries , of life, to. remember the
poor." Ton will, therefore, say our . desire
should be greatly inoreased when the poor are
blind. Favor ns with your views of tuch eon
duot by oity officers and the decision of a
Judge of a Criminal Court .
