Marietta & Cincinnati Railroad. a a d it A special term of tho Ross county Court of Common Pleas was held iu Chillicothe last week, Judgo Minshall presiding, to hear tho application of the first mortgage bondholders for a foreclosure of tho mort gage and a reorganization of the company. Somo of tho ablest lawyers of the State wore employed in the case, Judges Ranney and Olds, and Hon. R. A. Harrison appear ing as counsel for bondholders, and Judgo Jordan, Win. Disney aud Saml. R. Mat thews, of i Cincinnati, representing tho in terests of that city aud tho old Hillsboro & Cincinnati railroad company iu opposition to the foreclosure and sule of the road. The Court reserved its decision until the next regular term, October Hub, and ap pointed Mr. S. S. Nooke a special commis sioner, to proceed to Now York iu tlie meantime, aud take testimony to satisfy himself as au oiliccr of the Court, that the requisite amoiiut of bouds and stock of the company had ucen plet-lgori to the reorgani zation as required by law. In regard to till claim of the old Hillsboro & Cincinnati company, the Ross coun ty Ittgi liter in it:: report of the case has the following : Mr. Samuel R. Matthews, counsel for the old Hillsboro A', Ciucinuali Railway Com pany, next came before the Court iu behalf of that corporation. Mr. Matthews' posi tion in brief was this: That there was a suit pending in tho Highland District Court for a foreclosure and sale of the I lillsboro and Cincinnati road, and that thin Court therefore bad no jurisdiction. The iniiU in the cocoa nut is, that if the Hillsboro claim is adjudged valid, it gives the bondholders of the 11. A C. the title to that part of the main line of the M. A O. between Blau cliester and Lovcland. Mr. Matthews moved for leave to lilo a supplemental an swer, which was granted, and demurred to by tlie 11. A O. attorneys, which demurrer was sustained. Mr. Matthews appealed and prepared to give the usual appeal bond. Mr. Matthews next spoke against the sullicieucy of tho records and tlie alleged abseuco of eviilence to show that the re quired number of bond and slock holders had signed tho plan of reorganization. His main point and one which scented to exercise tho opposition attorneys most, was the statement backed by a certilicato from Secretary of State, William Bell, showing that tho Marietta aud Cincinnati Railroad Com pany as reorganized had never been incor porated. Mr. Matthews spoke at consid erable length, telling the judges that a do creu entered by them for a sale would be worth nothing. Ho also mentioned that the act under which the company had reor ganized over twenty years ago aud under the provisions of which a deed for the property had been taken from the old ,M. A O. Company, was uucoiistilutioniil. The Court over-ruled Mr. Matthews' ob jection that the reorganization of the M. A C. road was illegal, but sastaiiied his point as to tho insullieiency of evidence that the requisite number of bondholders and other creditors had signed tho petition tor the foreclosure and sale of the road.

One day last week Win. Brown, of m ar Pricctow'n, came to town ou business. At noon he went to the Molly.Jonalhan Floyd House for dinner. After dinner he a lo'd what his bill was and the hostess (old him it was fifty c-nls, which be paid and went into the saloon, where Jonathan told him it was too much, .mil paid him back twenty-live cents. His remarks about this time, which wero not very flattering to Mollie, wero beard by that female, and she appeared ou the scyie, fortunately for Billy, without the potato masher, and began a systematic course of curses and abuse. Billy says that at about this stage of tho game tlio door was closed on nun, ana no inougni no Knew wliat Ins business was then, and began to butler Mollio with fish kits, knocking her dow n, bruising her on tho breast, and making an ugly looking and painful wound over tho eye. -I i in.-it 1 nut (hen stepped to I lie front. but had scarcely got in position until ho received a solid shot from Brown's battery, and he surrendered. About this time Brown was ready to leave town, a thing which he did inslanter. Marshal Siiukins went, down to his house the next day lo invite him up hero, but be was not at home, lie had gone to the Sabina fair where the Marshall I ouud him, lie had taken some stock there, and could not leave it, but gave bond for his appearance here on Sat urday, lie says he is willing' to pay for what ho has done and they must do the same. So tin" end is not yet. Later - At ahearingou Monday, Brown's trial was continued to October 15, and his bond lixcl at 5iMI. Mercer Merry, SINCE A HEARING IN THE PROBATE COURT HAS VINDICATED HIM OF THE CHARGE OF EMBEZZLEMENT. ENT, Jason Mercer, of New Lexington, who was arrested in Indiana by Detective llazen, about two weeks since, on the charge of embezzling funds, full particu lars of which have been given in these columns, had his trial before Judge Dittey, iu the Common Pleas Court room, on Mon day. The case attracted a full court room of spectators, and more interest was manifested than in any case (hat had been tried in our courts for some time. A large number of witnesses wero examined, and the burthen of proof going to show that their was no evident intention of fraud ou the part of the accused, Judge Dittey, alter reviewing the evidence, discharged Mercer, who was warmly congratulated by bis friends. Attempted Outrage. Indignation and excitement was created in a circle of tho colored demi.giis of Iliils boro. the latter part of lu.-d week, by the report that Joseph Pcale. a pretty general ly known colored character of the town, about 115 years nf age, had attempted a henioiis crime upon the person of the eighteen-year "Id daughter of Nelson Wil liams. The unsavory rumor was confirmed by Williams swearing ont a warrant for the arrest of pcale, charging him with attempt ed outrage. The warrant is in tho hands of Marshall Willitts, who, with ollicers Lyl" and Slevenson, have vigilantly search ed for the lecherous offender, thus far with out availing npiirehensiou or arre st of the fugitive from justice, whom is thought to baio Med the country immediately on being discovered in his foul attempt. Marshall Willells is confident, however, that sooner or later, ho will o,.( his man. What a Preacher said in one of the Pulpits of Hillsboro last Sunday Evening.
