At the session of the County Commissioners,

City Auditob, The statement of Mr. Spader,
one of the City Tax Collectors, shows reoeipts
on collection of fourteen thousand one hun
dred and thirty-five dollars and twenty cents,
on assessments amounting to twenty-two
thousand two nunured and lortv-nine dollars
and soventy-four cents. As the Collector's
fees amounted to one thousand one hundred
and thirty dollars and eighty-one oents, there
is a balance ot two nundred and Bixty-one
dollars and nine cents due the Collector.
A Tbiple BubqIiIby. Seme scoundrels, on
the night of Thursday last, feloniously entered
the store of W. H. Ferrell, in Sablna, Clinton
County, Ohio, and robbed it of jewelry to tbe
amount of $60, beside quite a valuable watch.
They then went to another establishment,
where they found nothing, however, but a lit
tle change, which was in the mnney-drawer.
They then entered the Postoffioe, but here they
were met by a large Newfoundland dog, which
frightened them for the balance of the night
from further prosecuting their burglarious
Sebious Accident to a Femalb. A woman,
whose name we have been requested to with
hold, visited a Fourth-street dentist on Satur
day last, and was placed under the influence
of ether, that she might be better enabled to
bear the pain whioh is, we believe, always tho
result of the extraction of a tooth. Before she
bad fully recovered from the effeot she left the
office, but, just at the head of tbe stairs, became
diiiy and fell to tbe bottom, injuring herself
quite severely. She was assisted to a ooaoh
and driven to her residence, but has been so
ill ever since that the fears of a large circle of
friends have been excited, and it is said her
recovery is a matter of doubt.
Mabble Medallion of Oenebal CUbibaldi.
Signor Ginseppe Gionnini favored us on Satur
day last with the sight of an admirably exe
cuted marble medallion of the Italian patriot,
General Garibaldi, which will be on exhibition
daring the week at Wiswell's, on Fourth-street.
Mr. d. intends to raffle this work of art and
devote the proceeds to the fund now being
raised to purchase a million of muskets for the
patriots of Italy. The medallion wis modeled
from a photograph taken while Garibaldi was
in New'York, and this, taken with the faot
that the artist is personally aequatnted with
the General, has enabled him to execute a
likeness, whioh he hopes will induce not only
his countrymen, but all who are in favor of
civil and religious liberty, to oontribute lib
erally to the fund.
Fwb on Saturday Mobnino Loss Five
Thousand Dollars. The Saw-mill of Mr.
Vance, located in the Seventeenth Ward,
near McKendree M. E. Chapel, took fire,
about five o'clock on Saturday morning, and
although the engines were promptly upon
the ground, it was almost an hour before any
water was thrown upon the building. This
waa caused by lack of water in the cisterns
and the fact that the firemen of the ward were
unable to find the key with which to let in a
a supply. A soon, however, as water could
be obtained, the mill waa deluged and the
lire extinguished. A large quantity of lumber
belonging to Mr. V. was destroyed, together
with the building, but the lots, whioh has
been variously estimated at from three to ten
thousand dollars, in our opinion will not ex
ceed five thousand, upon which there is an in
surance of two thousand dollars in the Wash
ington Union Insurance Company, of Cleve
land. Tbe fire originated, we believe, in the
furnace, and was far more destructive than it
would have been if fie supply of water bad
been large aa usual. The firemen worked
with redoubled energy, however, on this ac
count, and after they subdued the flames, were
kindly invited to breakfast at the house of
Mr. Naylor, on Front-street, who treated
them with most hearty hospitality.
Death of a Well-known German Editor.
The following article waa prepared for our
issue of Saturday,1 but its publication waa
omitted Id consequeno of the pressure upon
our advertising oolnmns. . ; , ,
At four o'clock on Friday afternoon, a dis
ease which, for several months, hat been watt
ing the body of Mr. William Rothaoker, editor
of the Turnttitunr, ended its labors and car
ried him to another life.
Mr. R. was born in Baden, in 1828, and at
twenty yeara of age wm found among the
Revolutionists in Germany. With a number
of othert he came to this oountry In 1818, and
almost immediately upon his arrival assumed
the editorial chair of a German paper whioh
waa published In Wheeling, Va. He after
ward removed to this city, where he became
connected with the Eochnaechttr, and later be
waa associated with Fred. Hassaurek, Esq., in
in the publication of the Meniehrtchle.
This association did sot continue long, and
Mr. Rothaoker removed to Pittsburg, where
he became eonnected with the editorial de
partment of a paper, whose name we have
forgotten. In 1867 he returned to this city,
where for some months he taught his native
language In our public schools; but he waa
called hence In the same year to take charge of
the Freie Blatter, published at Albany, N. T.
In January last the Turners elected him
editor of the Turniiitunj, with whioh he has
been conneoted ever slnoe.
About three months ago, while on his way
from Dubuque 'to Baltimore, to attend the
Turners' Convention, he waa telted with the
ditease whioh- was finally the cause of his
death. He wat brought to this olty, and,
although be received the utmost attention
from hia lamily, who were at hia bedside con
stantly, and his friends, who are numerous,
their love oould not ward off tbe blow of the
destroyer, and he fell, at we have stated,
Friday afternoon.
Mr. R. was intellectual, cultivated and lib
eral; a clever, forolble and spirited writer, and
leaves a large olrole of friends, besides a wife
and four children, to mourn hia all too early
end. Hit funeral took plaoe yesterday, from
the oorner of Vine and Mercer-streets, and
waa attended by the Turnera and several other
German societies, and a large concourse of
Tbb Seamen's Chapel Dedication op tbb
Bkthel,. The Western Seamen's Friends So
ciety started a "Bethel" or Seamen's Chapel
in this city several years ago. Latterly it hat
been a floating church, moored at the wharf.
This has bcon abandoned, and rooms in the
old Museum building have been devoted, to the
purposes of the Bethel. Yesterday afternoon
religious services of nominal dedication
brought a very large audience to the rooms.
Every available apace waa occupied. The
same room whore wild animals had once
crouched in cages, where ferocious beasts were
once exhibited for show, the impersonation of
the wild passiona of man, the room once de
voted to dissipation, and demoralisation, the
floor where Wright's blood was spilled by a
murderer, was vesterday set apart for reli
gious services for the seamen. And as the
eloquent speaker, Rev. Kingston Goddard,
descanted upon this text of Eiekiel, 37 chap
ter, verse 3, "And he said unto me, son of
man, can these bones live 7 And I answered,
O, Lord God, thou knowest." Our memory
recalled a vision of the room when it was a
moral Golgotha a place of bones.
The speaker likened the exposed waterman's
eondition, morally and religiously, to that of
the fallen greatneis of the nation, whose de
gradation waa referred to, emblematloally, in
his text. Learning oould not save them mor
ality waa not sufficient grace inly could do
the work, and grace only oould have the glory
No mere ecclesiastical organization man's
machinery oau effectually reform this or any
other olass of men. The only hope for sinner
is in the Gospel ecoleslastical formality may
stuff with chaff, but will not feed the soul of
man. The work to be done la for man, the
minister to prophesy to preach; the power
from the Holy Ghost must accompany the
ministration. The same power that upholds
the throne of God can say to the abandoned,
polluted waterman, "These bones shall live."
The speaker pledged himself to the cause of
the Bethel, subscribing $25 for Christ Churoh,
(Episoopal) of whioh bo it pastor.
Mr. Leonard, the General Agent, made a
thort address, explaining that $500 was needed
to pay for tbe Bethel, and after a spirited ad
dress from Rev. E, W. Sehon, who also gave
$25, a collection was soon taken up. $250 was
then secured for the Seamen's Chapel and

Well Dbsebvkd Compliment to a Cincinnati
Ministeb. The Philadelphia Evening Built
tin publishes an extract from a letter from a
member of the Second Presbyterian Church
nf this oity to a friend in the city of Brotherly
Love, which contains the following well-deserved
compliment to the accomplished Rec
tor of Christ Church. It says :
"The Rev. Dr. Goddard is the oenter of at

Tbb Lost Jewels at thb Crrr Prison. The
koeper of tha City Prison, Mr. Boots, has given
evidence of his willingness to have the matter
of the missing rings investigated, and avers
that the keys of the City Prison did not reach
him from the hands of Mr. Bunker, but had
passed through those of others before he re

Meetino) or tbb Stockbolderb oj-thk South
ern Paciria Railroad. A mtotiof; of the
Stockholders of tbe Southern I'acilic Rail
road was held in Louisville on Thursday and
Friday of last week. The President of the
road, Dr. J. Fowlkes reported that tbe Com
pany now stands not only free from embar
rassment, but commanding the enthusiastic
sympathy and interest of the citizens of that
generous State which gave birth to the great
est enterprise of the age. The old feuds ex
isting at the time of his roport, November 25,
1858, have all been ended, and all parties are
animated at this time by a spirit of unanimity
in accomplishing the great object of the char
ter. He also ttatea that meaaures have been ta
ken by means of aaloa of present stock, and
by subscriptions, to raise the $250,000 to be
uaed for actual working meana in constructing
the road, of whioh $100,000 had alredy been
raised in Texas alone.
On Friday morning tbe committee, to whom
was referred the paper of Dr. Fowlkes, re
ported that they were unanimously of the
opinion that the condition and prospects of the
eoterpriie have, at no previous time, been so
favorable aa they are now.
1. All the debts of the Company hare been
provided for, and the Company standi freed
from liabilities.
2. The State suit haa been tried on itt merilt.
aud the franchises of the Company are fully
recognised ana est&Diished by the courts or
3. Tbe stock list haa been thoroughly purged
by a judicial tale and transfer of the franchisee
and property, and they are now vetted solely in
toose parsons wnose money nas redeemed the
Company from its peril. The stook of the
Company is fully represented by its property.
The committee embody their conclusions in
the following resolutions :
Bttolvtd, That a oommltteeof three persons
be appointed by tbe chairman, from this meet
ing, to take up a subscription of $i50,000, and
tender the same to J. Edgar Thompson, In ac
cordance with the suggestions of this report.
Aeeofoed, That it is inexpedient for this
Convention to consider the subject of the cut
off stock of this company.
Resolved, That Dr. J. Fowlkes be requested
to continue his invaluable services to thia
oompany In the manner Indicated in thla
A resolution, expressing the thanks of tbe
stockholders to Dr. Fowlkes, for "the able,
fearless and effective manner in which be has
maintained their interests," wat adopted, and
the Convention adjourned.
Tbb Nbw Montblt. We noticed a couple
of weeks ago that a new monthly, to be oalled
Tkt LM, was about to be established In this
oity. We now learn that It will be under the
editorial control of Rev. M, D. Conway, and
will number among other contributors Ralph
waido Emerson, rtev. u. a. jfrethingham, H.
D. Thorean, and F. B. Sanborn.
The new journal will be liberal in its tone,
aa might be expected from the names we
have given above, and treat all tha social
and religious questions of the day in the
broadest spirit of freedom. That it will be
ably edited there oan be no question that it
will succeed we do not doubt.
Annivbrsabt or thb Yodno Mux's Bihlb So-
oibtt. The twenty-fourth anniversary meet
ing or theioung Men's .Bible tiociety, ol this
city, will be held this evening, at the Central
Presbyterian Church, on the corner of Mound
street and Barr, at seven o'clook. Thia asso
ciation la admirably organized, and the labors
of their oommittees have been unceasing. An
opportunity will be afforded, thia evening, pre
vious to the election of officers, for brief ad
dresses, containing statements of the manner
in whioh the society proseoutes its work, that
will doubtless be interesting to all who are
concerned in the spread of the Bible.
Police Court. There were but nineteen
cases examined before the Police Court on Sat
urday, none of which, however, were of suffi
cient interest or Importance for publication.
John Leonard, tbe returned homicide, hat
been committed for trial in the Court of Com
mon Pleas, and it now under ball of two thou
sand dollars.
The oase of George S. Hill, whose forgery
on the proprietors of the Dennison House we
noticed some days ago, has been continued un
til Wednesday next.
An Editobial Duel on thb Tatis. For
several days past a quarrel between two of
our leading editors nas been brewing, and a
lengthy correspondence has taken plaoe be
tween the parties. Tho seconds have been
chosen, we understand, and It has been stated
that a challenge passed yesterday moraine.
How this affair will end, we know not, but
are inclined to think and hope it will be sot
tied without an appeal to arms.
Y. M. M. L. A. Lbctubks. The third
leoture of the winter course before tbe Young
Men's Mercantile Library Association, will be
delivered at Smith & Nixon's Hall to-morrow
evening, by Hon. Francis P. Blair, of St. Louis.
Mr. B. has already attained considerable
reputation, and his discourse will doubtless be
quite interesting and draw a large and fashion
able audience.

Magnificent Dispi.tr. On the night of tbe '
2d of September, during a tremendous gate, a.
wonderful phenomena manifested itself tn the
oBlcer and- erew of th,tWar .Ctuu, J-S
Cspe Horn. The rare tpeetaole nf an aurora
australii, or southern lights, ' wis toitnaeesil. '
It commenced about 1 o'clock In the more -lug
and increased in spleodor until towar 1
daylight, when it gradually faded before tbo '
light of day. Tbe whole heavens were of a
dun red. whtnn eolnr waa raflsrtArl In th .
ocean, upon which a foarfnl tea waa running.
These were surmounted by combs, not of tho
usual white, but almost blood red. bume of
the orew were much frightened. Onoe during
the night a tremondous hail and toots tqaaU
huitled upon the ship. Through the whoie of
this the flame assumed the tame rosette hue,
and when a spray flew over the ship it fell to
leeward In ruddy mowers. Between ice

mysterious lights were teen shooting up in
spiral ttreakt nearly to the lenith now flash

and now looming up agalntt the

flagration, to that tbe glare wat reflected upon

Crott, and hit officert tay that they have never
witnessed any thing equalling this display lor
magnifioence. During the galo, seroral times

Fashionable Febalb Avfabel. A writer
in the Atlantic Monthly, speaking of those
'Irenes whioh are entirely too thort at one end
for either oouifort or deoency, lays:
From that point (the waist) it begtnt to Ion
its semblance to a woman's shape, (eg yon will
tee by again raising your eyes to the Venus)
nod after running two or throe inches inward,
tu a straight line, where it should turn onir
ward with a gentle curve, its outline breaks
into a sharp angle, and expand! with a sudden
hyperbolloal curve Into a monstrous and name
less figure that it not only unlike naturo, but
has no relation whatever with nature. The
eye needt no cultivation, the brain bo iostruc
tion to perceive that such an outline oan not
he produced by drapery on a woman's foim.
it it olear, at a glance, that there it an artlfl
dial structure underneath that twelllng sklrt;
that a scaffold, a frame-work has been erected
co tupport that dome of tilk; and that tbe
wearer is merely an automatic machine by
which it it made to perambulate. A woman
in thit rig hangt in her skirts like a clapper in
i bell; and I never meet one witbout being .
tempted to take her by the neck and ring her.
Embalming Cobpsks. AtPsduoab, Ky., re
cently, the body of a stranger, who died there,
wat embalmed as an experiment by a process
which it comparatively little known, though its
diaoovery dates yean back. The body wat vis
ited by a number of medical inon, and othert,
who expressed muoh astonishment at the extra
ordinary degree of preservation and life-likeness
the corpse presented. The ingredients of tbe
composition by which this remarkable effuot is
produced are kept secret. ! ..
