cultivated young gentlemen,who aro enthusi
astic admirers of the Hibernla Anaoreon; and

the anniversary of the birth of these distin

Man's Lio Bboikn bt a Pali,. A laborer
named Joseph Bartmeyer, while engaged in
unloading a oanal-boat in the Miami Canal,
above Twelfth-Btreet, fell from the deck Into
the hold, and broke his left leg, benldes other
wise bruising himself. He resides, we believe,
on Green-street, near Elm, to which place he
was immediately taken, and where his wounds
were properly attended to.
Procibdihob of thi Covnty Coumisbiomsbs.
At the regular session of tbe Connty Commis
sioners, held yesterday morning, orders were
passed amounting, in the aggregate, to $6,222,
of which 6,000 were paid to Wesley M. Cam
eron, for work done upon the South-western
Lunatic Asylum. John Sullivan, Omar
Obeok, Eliza Eadley, Francis Wageoheim and
Martha Francis were discharged from jail bo

Scddkn Death. A young man named Wm.
D. Jonos, who resided with his mother on
Greorge-ntreet, between Elm and Plum, went
to bed night before last in quite as good health
as nsual, but was found dead in his bed yes
terday morning. The deoeneed was about
twenty-two years of age, and had a large
olrcle of acquaintances, who much regret his
untimely death, whioh, we believe, was
ouuted by congestion of the heart.
Thb Lati Pirboral Collision at tbs Citt
Prison. The personal diffioulty between Sr.
Webb, the physician of the City Prison, and
Theodore Marsh, the Chairman of the City
Council Prison Committee, an aooount of whioh
we published in our issue of Monday morning,
has taken a muoh more serious form than was
at first antioipated. Day before vesterday,
Dr. Webb caused a warrant to be issued for
Mr. Marsh, oharsini him with maim in?, based
on the fact that the thumb of the plaintiff
was severely bitten by nis antagonist during
the rensountar. Mr. Marsh was before tbe
Police Court yesterday morning, and atated
that he regretted the difficulty exceedingly,
and would waive an examination. He was
held to bail in the sum of $500, to answer the
oharge before the next term of the Court of
Common fleas.

Passrnokrs Thbowm Ovbr a Baku.. The

Oisood Station. The sleeping oar attached to
the train, by some means tbe particulars of
watch we are- unable to learnwas thrown
from the track, over a bank about ten feet
high, and very badly orushed,
It contained at the time about fifty passen
gersseveral of them women who were
thrown from their berths, and tossed abont the
oar, to an, extent whioh was anything but
agreeable. All the passengers were more or
less injured, but none of them were severely
injured. The aooldent detained the train for
some time) but, with the exception of the loss
ofe car, no serious damage was sustained.
Polkis Count. At the Police Court yester
day morning Judge Lowe examined thirty

street, near Western-row, and arrested John
Lent and Belle, his wife, together with two
Joungwomen named Mary Lawler and Mary
ane Williams. The establishment has long
been regarded as one of the worst of its kind,
and appears now, much to the satisfaction of
the residents of the neighborhood, to be en
tirely broken up. Lant and his wife were
each fined $50 and oosts, and sentenoed to

SinotjLAB Dicisios. A oertain Magistrate
of this city, who has attained considerable
notoriety for hii polylingual proclivities, and
is only spoken nf as the judex pacit, or as Gio
vanni, the yudict di pace, a few days ago had
a somewhat singular ease before him for exam
ination, and delivered a most remarkable de
cision, both of whioh we purpose herein to
briefly reoord,
A man whose name we have forgotten had
a hat somewhat worn whioh he thought might
be materially improved by the aid of the iron
of a hatter. He therefore took the capntal
protection of his altitudinal extremity to a
member of this oraft with the order to have it
properly repaired. After the work bad been
finished the man took his hat, for wh&b he
waa oharged a dollar; but be soon became dis
satisfied with the work, and brought suit for
the recovery of the money, stating that it had
been spoiled instead of made better.
The Magistrate carefully examined the ease,
and heard the argument with the placidity and
patience for which he has become so famous.
He then reviewed the affair at some length,
and, at last, delivered the opinion that justice
oould be done both partieaonly by causing the
hatter to refund the money and keep the hat,
and the deoision was thus recorded upon the
docket. The plaintiff loft the office batless,
and the hatter somehow thought he had been
deprived of payment for his labor; but both
were puisled by this new and highly original
method of dispensing justice.

Thb Licturi at WeblbtCbapbl. The leo
lure laat night at Wesley Cnapel by Bishop
Simpson, on "Jerusalem and the Holy Land,"
was largely attended, the house being filled in
every part to repletion. The address was
ohastily written, and delivered in an impres
sive and eloquent manner. The narrative of
the journey from Vienna to Jernialem, the
allusions to Mahommedanlsm, the history of
the speaker's sioknesi while traversing the
valley of the Nile, were each excellent in their
way, and doubtless made a lasting impression
on the minds of his audience, for they were
listened to with the prolbundeat interest until
the olose.

The weekly statement of bank averages is quite as
unfavorable as waa anticipated, showiDg a fair gain
in the specie reserve, aud a couservatlve aotlonon
the part of bank managers In a reduction of the lino
of loans. The specie rcsoive will probably be in
creased half a million by the sub-treasury disburse
ments of to day audi to-morroonaaaayon1ce cer
tificates. .
With aceisatlon of the Foreign drala forGolJ, the
Banks may be considered strong, and should show
an accumulating line of specie for a month or two,
mora especially If the Postoffloe Appropriation bill
should be pushed through Congress. Ihe Deposit
line shows an Increase of over a million, which does
aot harmonise with tbe other Igures of the report.!
