Ths "Philosophic Owlb." We are re
quested to state that the mysterious Hook of
" Phitosophio Owls " will peroh to-morrow
morning at two o'olock on their accustomed
boughs, to do honor to the owlest of owls with
characteristic "hootlogs." What this body is,
or what its object, no one appears to know; but
we understand the sooiety, if we oan employ
tbe term, iB eompoied of many of our most
intelligent and cultivated, though peculiar,
eitlsens. - Who the davilarethe "Philosophic
Owlaf" Can any one tell us?
Sassath Sobool Aniyiversart. We learn
that the teachers and scholars of the Ninth
street Baptist Sabbath-school are preparing
some interesting exeroises for the oelebratlon
of their next anniversary, which will take
place early in Decembor. Original addresses,
recitations, declamations, Ac, will be delivered
by the ohildron belonging to the school, who
will also sing several beautiful hymns prepared
expressly for the oooaslon. In addition to the
above, tbe choir connected with the ehurob,
under the direction of Prof. Viotor Williams,
will add to the interest of the services by the
performance of several pieces of excellent
Bkbious Acoident tn a Child. A little girl
about two years old, belonging to Mrs. Har
rington, residing on Kossuth-street, a short
distance from Court, was very seriously burnt
day before yesterday, by pulling over a ket
tle of boiling water, during a temporary ab
sence of her mother. The child climbed
upon a stool, in the pursuit of material to sat
isfy her curiosity, and at the time of the ac
cident was evidently attempting to discover
the oontents of the vessel. Her injuries con
sist of a broken arm received by the fall from
the stool, and a severe contusion of tho head,
together with the burns received from the
heated liquid, which extend from tor head,
literally, to her feet. The child is still suf
fering the intensest pain, and no one but her
mother entertains the slightest hope of her
Waqoh. A bono attached to an express
wagon ran away, up Smith -street, yesterday
afternoon, at a speed whloh would have
startled "Flora Temple;" but its career was
brought suddenly to an end at the oorner of
Jjongwortn-street, by coming in contact with
a treo. The driver, who had kept his seat
until this instant, was thrown out upon the
pavement and quite seriously injured. Hii
left shoulder was dislocated and bis collar
bone broken, while a contusion which he re
ceived upon the head it is feared will amount
to a fraoture or the skull. We were unable to
learn his name or reaideaoe, but his wounds
were carefully attended to by some persons
who reside in the neighborhood where the
accident cconrred, :
Sbockixq Afmib A Child Two Years
op Asa Bobnt to Dkath. A little daughter-
two years of age of Hiram Jiavlin, who
has recently been boarding at the American
House, on Broadway, near Seoond-street, was
so horribly burnt on Tuesday evening last
that, after lingering in the utmost agony until
yesterday morning, she died. She bad been
placed in the oharge of a nurse and was play
ing about the floor, her protector being en
gaged in sewing. The girl, however, left her
for a few minutes for the purpose of prewiring
some materials to finish a garment, and while
the was absent the child orep toward the Are
and her clothes by Some means caught. In a
few minutes the fiery lingers of the flame
reached her life, and before assistance was ob
tained had to far destroyed it that all the ef
forts of her physicians were without avail. (

Pomoi Cotjbt. Business at the Police Court,
for some days past, has been remarkably dull,
and, although the number of cases has been
generally quite as large as nsuI, those which
seemed to be worthy of notice have been few
and far between. Yesterday Jadge Lowe dis
posed of twenty-one oases, but their laok of
interest would hardly entitle tuein to a single
paragraph. We mention tba following for
reasons tnat are apparent.
The eight men, who, as our readers doubt
less remember, were arrested a day or two ago,
upon suspicion of having been oonnected with
a gang of thieves In Cleveland, were discharg
ed, no evidence of their guilt having been
made manifest.
Andrew 6arver, who, a few months ago,
gained a somewhat unenviable notoriety by
shooting Theodore Pettit, in a little difficulty
on Byoamore-street, near Third, visited a
bagnio on Home-street, night before last, and
abused some of the inmates to suoh an extent
thattbey were induced to seek protection at
the hands of the law. He was arrested upon
two separate charges, and, in default of bail,
committed to jail to await a final examination
before Judge Lowe on Friday next.

A East End Gmsvakce. Messrs. Sohults
and J. H. Walker complain to tbe City Coun
eilthat tbe laying of the Pendleton Street
Railroad along East Front-street, now occu
pied by railroad tracks, would be an unendura
ble annoyance and injury to their property,
from which It will become them to protect
themselves by law from what they call a tyran
nical oppression. They declare that for the
last twelve or fifteen years their lives have
been jeoporded, their rest at night broken from
tbe incessant nss of locomotives both day and
night, at a speed ranging from ten to twenty
miles per hour, and with trains attached cov
ering nearly the whole distance between the
said junotion of Congress and Front-streets np
to Washington-street.
A contract has been signed giving occupa
tion of this street for twenty years, and Coun
cil will have difficulty in getting rid of tbe
obligation it hat incurred.
Fatal Accident A Little Giri. Almost
ImAJtuT Killed A little girl, ab-ut nine
years of age, daughter or Dr. James . Smith,
who reildes at No. M Broadway, wss Ipjured
so bsdly a day or two ago by an accident that
she died In a few hours afterward.-' The cir
cumetasoes as related to us are as, follows:
Sbe was on a visit to a rolative of hor
mother's, who resides iu thor country about
fifteen miles from tbe city, and was amusing
herself near a mill of some kind, worked by
horse-power, the animal being attached to the
end of a long lever which moved In a circle
By some means she ran within the circle and
the lever struck and threw her against a post
with such force at to break her collar-bone
and cauie a cononssion oi the brain, from the
effects of whloh studied in a few hours. The
child was much beloved by all who knew her
for her quiet and amiable manners, and we
are informed that sbe died fully oonscious
that she was pasting to another life, and with
a resignation, which, had the been older,
could have been produced by nothing tavo tho
purest philosophy. '

A On. Faotort Destroyed bt Firs Loss
$2,500. About eight o'clock last evening a,
fire broke out in a two-story frame tenement,
oooupied by Hamilton Lyon aa a Petboleum
Oil Factory, on the south si do of Third-street,
between Butler and the Miami Canal; and
before tbe flames oonld be extinguished tho
building was completely destroyed, Lyon was
looking about with a lighted candle, when tho
flame of the wiok Ignited tome oil, and oaused
the conflagration, the proprietor's face and
hands being severely burnt in his efforts to
extinguish the lire. , The loss is about $2,500,
upon which there is no insurance. About a
year ago a building used for a similar purpose,
in the same locality, was burnt down with
about an equal lots. ' ' i

- Mr. James W. Cummlngs, late Clerk of the
United States Court, has determined to take
up his future residence In St. Louis, leaving
for that city this morning. Mr. Cummlngs is
an obliging and a genial gentleman, with whom
we re (ret to part, and hope that he will have
the it ceess he deserves in his new home. His
fealty to the S. S. A. P.'s should oommend
him to all "philosophic owls."

witness the great rush to the oyster depot of
Robert Orr, No. 11 West Fifth-street, whioh
was kept np all of yesterday, In order to get a
complete supply of oysters for to-day. But if
the rush was astonishing, tbe readiness with
which customers were supplied was more to.

Mrs. Cairns had left as a pledge for the pay
ment of her husband's fine was all in the
drawer at the time he gave up his keys. We
are not certain where the fault lies, but, in
common with all who know any thing of the
affair, we fool confident there is dishonesty
among some of the persons who frequent the
office of the City Prison.
ThiCitt Prison Chais-oano Uniform.
A couple of the oity prisoners appeared yes
torday in the new ehain-gang uniform. It
consists of a brown oloth with a red stripe,
wbioh, we have been informed, is merely
tewed on the cloth. If this be true, it could
be easily ripped off; and in that case If one of
the prisoners should escape, he would bave
quite a good psir of pantaloons. The uniform
looks neat, however, and will doubtless do the
oity some service.
Boox-Ksepinq. We take pleasure In di
recting the reader's attention to the advertise
ment of John Gundry. His new and original
system for imparting a thorough knowledge oi
double-entry book-keeping, which we bave had
an opportunity of examining, is certainly a
great improvement over the old plan of teach
ing, and must necessarily become very popu
lar. Persons about to enter upon suoh a course
of ttudy should pay Mr. G. a visit.

follows: '
The weekly statement of Bank averages ia quite aa
favorable as was anticipated, especially in the apedn

contributions from other cities during the paat week
have been larger than waa supposed All tbe large)
Atlantio cities are in debt to Mew York, and mnst
sottle balances in gold. The banks probably opened
the week with lens than 19,f W),(d-0. The rapid ex-,
pauslon of loans havo lieou checked, and we had ex
pected no Increase In that line. We find, however,
on inquiry, that some of the banka which have de
clined discounting have been making demand loans)
on Paper with considerable freedom, thus keeping
better control of their funds. The change in deposita
is very small. ' ' ' 1 '
