Misceoenatiom. A rich case was bt
fore Commissioner Richards this morn
ing, man with a white skin, answering
to the name of Wm. H. Jones, being
charged with committing 4 general
nuisance by living with a negro woman
in house occupied-by several negro
families on Monroe street extended
south of the Catholic Orphan Asylum.
Jones is painter by trade, has been in
the Federal army, and has a certificate
to the effect that he has been legally
married to his chocolate colored
wife. - The- people living in the
neighborhood , have been annoyed
for ' some time by the noise and
fighting that have taken place on Jones'
premises, he being nearly always at war
with his colored room-males und when
not thus engaged, loves to play with his
wife in the yard, of the front room, al
ways leaving the window open, so that
his neighbors may see his miscegenating
proclivities. He is represented as quite
a loving husband, and when not at work,
or quarreling witKbis colored friends,
devotes bis whole time to his wife,
amusing himself by rubbing his nose
against her broad, flat African pr'o
bocis, and joining his lips to her
thick double barreled kissers in an
ecstatic enjoyment of bliss. Com
missioner Richards discharged Jones,
stating that the manner in which he lived
waa very disgraceful, but he had not vio
lated any city ordinance. The white
people living in 'the neighborhood are
very much disgusted with Jones and his
wife, and would be glad to see him return
home to Pennsylvania and take his col
ored bride with him. During the trial
this morning Mrs. Jones was present,
and at its conclusion, walked off by the
side of her husband.

Prof. Villehulin, the well known French
teacher, and Prof. Vigus, who has a
school on Linden street It appears
that the latter endeavored to supplant
the former by trying to have a Northern
friend engaged as French master at
one of the schools where VillehuRn
teaches. The parties met recently when
some harsh words ensued, and on Satur
day Prof. Vigu called with his two
sons at ProC Villehulin's boarding bouse
and slapped his face, while one of his
sons had hold of Villehulin's hands and
the other was ready to take part in the
affray if necessary. Several friends in
