Important to Everybody. We were in
formed yesterday that the city authorities have
determined to rigidly enforce the ordinanoe
relative to oleanslng tho sidewalks of anow and
loe. On Sunday last the streets were almost
impassable, from negleot upon the part of per
sons to make the aidewalks free from slush,
and there ia every prospeot that they will
be Is the same condition to-day. The ordi
nanoe is very explicit, and If our information
be correct, much trouble may be saved by
timely attention to its requirements.
Serious Railroad Accident it Tin: Third
Wabd. A milkman, named Mathiaa Walle,
while driving cross ths track of the Little
Miami Railroad, a short distance above the
depot, yesterday afte.-noon, was ao seriously
injured by a locomotive, whioh ran against
bis wagou, that it is feared he can not recover.
The vehicle was completely demolshed, and
he was thrown to the ground so violently that
hit arm waa broken and hla skull quite severely
fraotured. lie was conveyed to a house in
the neighborhood where his wounds were
dressed and his arm amputated, but his Inju
ries are of such a nature that it is more than
likely they will prove fatal. ,
A Minister Mistakbn for an Actor, One
of our violent pro-slavery Southern exchanges
presents its readers with tbe following ex
traordinary intelligence: "The ultra-abolitionist,
Conway, who for some months pest
has been making a great stir iu Cincinnati, by
his rabid haranges against slavery, has at last
turned actor, and is drawing crowds of negro
worshippers to the Opera-house in that city."
This will be very new news here, and we
would respectfully inform our Southern cotem
porary that Monoroe D. Conway, tbe Unita
rian minister, and F. B. Conwav. doinc tha
leading business at the Opera-house, are two
very ainerent persona, ana are only related to
each other through Adam and Eve.

Queer Adventure at the Court-House—
An Eccentric Mistaken for a Lunatic.
A rather droll story Is told around the
Court-bouse, concerning one of its fortrer rti
(acAei, who, from extreme eccentricity, has
been regarded by many 'of his acquaintances
as lunatic, and whose very peculiar conduot
baa, it ia said, given Just oattse for suspicion
cl his sanity. One day of last week, a man
haying been arrested, and an Inquest de lu
natho wquirendo held upon him In the Probate
Conrt, he was pronounced a fit subject for the
Asylum. At this Juncture, the person whose
duty it is to oonvey lunatics to Lick Run,
was called to take oharge of his prisoner,
being previously advieed to be wary in ap
proaching tha nnfortunate.
The driver, Tim,, went toward the door of
the Probate Court, and happened to see our
eecentrio hero we will call him Bob supposed
him the person with whom he waa to deal.
Tim. beokoned to Bob, and when he had ap
proaohed asked him down stairs. Having
arrived there, Bob was invited to take a ride
on Tim's wagon np town to a lager-beer saloon.
In a moment more, the two were rattling
along briskly, and whan they had nearly
reaohed ths Brighton Houae, Bob Insisted
upon knowing where his companion was going.
Tim, thinking he had been playing the hyp
ocrite long enough, informed Bob that he was
destined for the Asylum) pointing to the in
stitution In the distance. "Well, if that's your
direction, I'm going back to town," observed
Bob, not even then suspecting the mlataks of
the driver. Bob was about getting out when
Tim seised him, and, after a struggle, tied his
arms together with a handkerchief; but Bob
soon unloosed his hands', and when Tim en
deavored again to detain him, he struck out
boldly, and knocked the Jehu head-foremost
Into the gutter ; and leaving him to his reflec
tions, hurried rapidly away.
Tim returned to the Court-house is soon
as he could remove the mud from his garments
and wash tha blood from his face, seeking
for his escaped prisoner, only to learn of his
egregious blunder and to bear a great roar on
his announcement of his adventure.
Tim consoled himself for this merriment,
which doubtless appeared to him unseemly,
by declaring that he'd "taken many a man to
the Asylum, but he had never seen a chap
madder than that fellow."
A Protest from the third ward.
To the Editon of the Prta;
In behalf of a large number of German
born reaidents of the Third Ward, I desire to
interpose for a favorable public sentiment
among citizens outside of that ward, to aua
tain the opposition of those living in it,
against the oocupanoy of the aohool-houae on
the north-west corner of Esst Front and Parsons-streets.
The public meeting held last
week, and the determined mode used, of ex
pressing the indignation of the eitizena, wero
to express in the firmest and most forcible
manner the real and wide-extended opposition
to the projeot which has passed the City Coun
cil, to occupy the sohool-house designated for
a branch Prison and Work-house for female
vagrants who have been sentenced to incarce
ration for sixty days. Our position is a pe
culiar one; all the residents on the street
above, for a long distance, can reach Front
street only by passing along this building.
Even with a high fence aronnd the yard, the
prisoners, when at recreation, will be over
looked from the windows of private resi
dences in the immediate neighborhood.
Scenes of disorder and excitement will always
prevail about the entrances on the daily re
ception of prisoners. On their dismissal from
the house these depraved women will prowl
about our residences, offending by their pro
fanity and rile oonduot, the eyes and ears of
the women the ebildren. Thoy will demor
alize the young men thereabout, turning tbe
loeallty'lnto a rendezvous of the idle and dis
solute. Worthy families living in this neigh
borhood will thus be insulted. If this nui
sance Is allowed, it will be a reproach to the
City Council, and unjust to the East End.
We say no, very loud, and will appeal to the
law, if necessary.
Sickness at tri Citt Prison. Day before
yesterday there were five oases of delirium
trtmetu at the City Prison, one of which re
sulted in death. Yesterday an unusually bad
cace waa sent to the Commercial Hoapital,
but another waa added to the number already
under treatment, and there are now four oases
atill in that institution. We have aome reason
to believe that there are persons who are in
clined upon all occasions to be humane, and
feel that in the suffering, the destitute and
the degraded, no matter to what extent they
may be to blame for their WTetohednesa, there
ia atill eomethlng left whioh entitles them to
tho sympathies of mankind. To judge from
their actions, which, after all, is the best test
cf one's humanity, very few of this class find,
or have found, their way into our City Counoll.
Our reason for this statement maybe easily
imagined. It has long been an exploded idea
that persons who are guilty of no offense,
save tharof intoxication, should be punished
in the same manner as those who are guilty
of larceny, and in the statement which opened
this artiole may be seen one of the results of
the disregard our Council pays to the faot.
The matter has been discussed long enough,
and theeffeot of confining such persons so that
they are wholly deprived of a atimulant that
haa become a necessity of their lives, has at
length become so manifest that humanity re
fuses longer to be silent, and Insists upon
being heard. That they may be reclaimed
none oan deny, but that their conditions is
improved by the present method of disposing
of them no one ia mad enough to admit
Police Court. Judge. Lowe disposed of
forty oases yesterday, one of whioh may be of
some Interest. We therefore give it, together
with the result of some others whioh have
before beta mentioned ia our columns.
Poter Dory was examined upon an Indict
ment oharging him with publishing and selling

Four boys, Robert McCarty, Victor Jerrard.
Barney Duffy and Thomas Burns, tbe four
boys who were arrested some daya ago upon
the oharge of grand larceny, were aent to the

Ann Goldsmith, the great western bank
note eater, was discharged because the Ken
tucky sohoolmaster refused to appear against
her, and there was In consequence of this no
evidence of her guilt.
Charles Millard, arrested in eompany with
Thomas Eugene De Marbaia, for swindling a
couple or bucolicists, was discharged, as there
was no evidence of his complicity In the affair.
Tag Wratbib Tai Cbanok or Ysstsrday.
Cincinnati can hardly be surpassed anywhere
for variableness of climate, an assertion which
vosterdav will corroborate. In the morning
a warm rain was falling, and the breath of
summer was In the clouded atmosphere. xSre
noon, tho storm had grown chill y and the
copious drops beat coldly and euarpiy upon
the pane and the pedestrian. In the after
noon the rain was accompanied by sleet, and
before dark snow was descending sparsely.
Ai the evening advanced the anow-shower
increased, and long beforo midnight' the earth
was covered with a winding-sheet. As we
writ two o'olook the snow still scatters
down, and the streets, and trees, and house
tops, are all glistening in the crystal forms,
with tha white dream of death upon tbem.
All winter appears to na as we graze out cf
the window, and the stern season displays the
frozen scepter of its Icy reign.
Hats. Those wishing to purehase tbe latest

Fifth Anniversary Home of the
Friendless—Addresses by Rev. N.
West and Rev. Kingston Goddard.
The fifth anniversary of the Hnma of tha
Friendless waa held last night at Union Chapel,
on Seventh-street, nesr Western-row. The
audience was quite large, notwithstanding tbo
weather, which doubtless deterred many per
sons from attending who, under any other cir
enmstanoes, would ha vs been present.
The usual devotional exercises, such as read
ing the Scriptures, singing and prayer, opened
the meeting, after which the report of tbe sec
retary, Mrs. 8. Frankland. was read bv Judge
Storer. The report was elsgently written, and
in many parts was quits rhetorical In style.
It was lone and smbodlod a relation of the
doings of the Board of Managers, their visits
w me rrtsons anu Hospitals, tneir hopes and
fears, and containing many Incidents and
statements from nsrsons who had been re
claimed through the efforts of the Soolety, that
must nave neon grateiui to ita members as
they were interesting to the audience.
The Home for the Friendlesa has now been
In susceasful operation five years, and during
all thla time haa been pleading for help te en
able the Board of Managers to provide a auit-
auio piace igr me accommodation 01 tneremaies
under their care; but still they labor under tho
disadrantatte of an annarent lank of a-enaral
Interest In the Institution In tho oommunlty
and an almost deploted Treasury. During
the past year one hundred persons havs been
received into the Home, and there has been
but one death that of an infant.
The report olosed with an anneal to tha gen
erous to assist them in the work they had un-
uoriaBen, a sincere regret lor tne sickness of
the President, whose oounsel and aid the Board
could not spare, and at remembrance of the
aympatby it bad reoeived from the friends of
the institution.
The report of the Treasurer, Miis-HHtry A.
draff, was also quite long, and was only par
tially read. The recolnts durins the vear. In-
eluding the balanoe on hand at ths last re
port, amounted to $3,905 64, of which $461
were received by subscription, and $670 48 by
donations. The expenditures, inoludlng house
rent ana nouse expenses, amount to $3,740 85,
leaving a balanoe in the Treasury of $164 68,
Rev. Mr. Weat opened hla address by atatlng
that he was glad of the opportunity afforded
him to speak in behalf of the almost aband
oned class, whom the Association had taken
under Its oharge. The female who had once
sinned was seldom reclaimed, and the fault
was principally that or society. The betrayer
was taken into tbe parlor and made a friend,
but the victim of his plot waa orushed to the
earth. No one oould deny thla fact, but could
any one asaert that it was the result of a true
Christian apirlt. It is, however, the spirit of
a virtuous community, but waa it auoh an one
aa the brother would bear toward his sister, or
a father toward his erring child.
Rsv. Mr. Ooddard spoke of the cause in
which these noble women were engaged, and
was glad to tee ao large a number present the
fact might be denied, but it could not be dis
guised, that the persons who were to blame for
the misery of those fallen women were our
brothers and our fathers, and with referenco
to the more advanced in age, many of them
were to be found in our ohurches.
He had stood at the bed-side of the dying
girl whose life had been one of shame, and
breathed into her ear the same words of con
solation he had used to the members of hia
chnrob, and knew there waa no depth the
divine arm oould not reaoh. Their hearts
were naturally no worse than ours, and might
be touohed by the same voice and restrained
by the same love. Conversion was not merely
moral reformation, and if tbey were approached
with confidence and love, their hearts might
be found and changed.
Art and seience always undertook tbe hard
est task, that they might leave the greater
monuments. The diver found the brightest
pearl in the midst of a mass of corruption; and
so in this case many of the britrhteat intel
lects were olouded by shame, and an cols were
often hidden beneath the tinsel and rouge of
cue uniortunate magdaien.
Memphian Nights. The nights have been
as dark as those of Memphis or Clmnterium
this week, and yet the street lamps have been
extinguished according to tbe almanaa, leav
ing the olty wrapped in Impenetrable gloom.
Several accidents have ocourred, and one or
two persons who fraotured their limbs talk of
aueing tne city tor damages.. It is high time
this absurd custom of regulating lights by the
almanao should be abolished.
Death in the City Prison Cokoneb's In
quest. Coroner Carey was called upon yes
terday morning to hold an inquest upon the
body of a man named Peter Kelly, who died
at the City Prison. There was little difficulty
tn determining tne cause 01 nis aeatn, how
ever, and the verdict of the jury was to the
effect that it waa the result of long-oontlnucd

Monday's Mew Tork Times observes concerning
During the week past, although ths bank move
ment was strengthened on Monday by81,721,iGti from
California, tbe tendency of the Money market was
to firmness In the rates of DisconDt 011 long-late
bill, outside the Bank rule, and also on temporary
loans to broken on miscellaneous collateral. At
the same time, prime short-date acceptances were
taken by ontalde lenders at t6 per cent., and
money placed on pledge of State and federal securi
ties at M14 per cent. The Banks get 7 per cent, on
nearly all Discounts for ancount of their regular
dealers. The rale on call to the Stock Brokers is
generally S per cent., at which there waa a good de
mand at ths close of the week. Some of the private
banking-houses In the Vorolgn Exchange, owing to
the rather light demand for Bills on Jtnglaud and
France, were less free as lenders of money at call.
No movement of Specie In the direction of the South
has yet taken place, the Exchange on Kew York at
New Orleans being maintained within a small frac
tion of par. Bills on London are easier, at IWMfSi

A Drunken Dksi'erado Fivs Hum Stauiied,
One Phosadly Fatai.lv. One of the moat unpro
voked outrages that has ooourred here for a long time
took place lu tbe neighborhood of Drovers' Inn aud
Bank Lick-streot, yosterday.
A notorious individual, JjM. Sullivan, engaged,
when sober, in work lug at the depot, and when
drunk, in creating disturbances with those who
chance to he in hie way, became Inebriated, and,
nhile in ths neighborhood of Drovers' Inn, met a
man named McNoese, from Harrison County, who
waa driving some hogs. A ltliough au entire stranger,
Sullivan at onco commenced u conversation, and,
without any suspicion, stepped behind the drover
and stabbed hitu in tho back, inflicting a severe,
though we learn, not iluu eeroua wound.
Soon alter he cntereda enoe-shop on the corner of
nana jjicx ana i wcntn -streets, wnere two men,
Strotner and Afel, were engaged lu conversation.
Theso he charged with attempting his life, which
they dueled; whereupon he drew a knifo aud cut
Strotner in the arm and A fid in the back of the neck.
Afal's wound is dangerous, although his friends en
tertain bupeg of his recovery. On leaving the house,
Sullivan cut a man named liultx In the back, but did
uo serious injury. Soon after he stabbed another
man, likewise in tho back, inflicting a slight wound.
The whole conduct of Pulllvau was that of a cow
Ardly assassin. Kach of his Intended victims were
approached without warning, and four of the five
sl iblieil in the back. It in no palliation that he was
drunk, lie has been engagtd in several affrays
beforo, and once narrowly escaped being sent to the
Poulteutiarv. Had be not been promptly arrested,
It U thought he would have been lynched.

Canada. A Grand Jury has made a present
ment to the Court of Assises, of Essex County,
C. W., against the negro population In the
neighborhood of Anderson Township. The
authorities of that place olaim that nine
tenths of the crimes perpetrated in that
County, according to the population, are com
mitted by the colored people. The Court, In
alluding to the presentment, spoke of this
olass of the community na "indolent, shiftless
and dishonest, and unworthy of the sympathy
that some mistaken parties had extended to
them; they would not work when opportunity
was presonted, but preferred subsisting by
thieving from respootnble farmers and begging
from those benevolently inclined."
Diath of a Rich Parisian Fdblishkr. A
leading publisher of Paris, M. Panlin, died
on November 4. His great fortune originated
in a successful style of cheap literature. He
then, for some years, devoted himself to tbe
produotion of the well-known illustrated edi
tions of Oil Hint, Holitre, Don Quixote, io.,
which owed their main attraction to the facile
pencil of Tony Johannot, but of late he has
confined himself chiefly to the Illuitrationt
journal that be has the credit of originating,
now counting its 100,000 subscribers and to
ths historical works of M. Thiers, which are
said to have sold to the amount of 700,000
volumes. In less than ten years he is re
ported to have gained more then a million of
Bancs, or $200,000.
