ORE BtDE OF A Rid LAND STORY. Joseph Bobinsonpetitions' the Circuit Court for injunction and relief under iho following cir cumstances : Ho alleges that hla father, Alex ander Boblnson, iu tbo y ear 1871, claimed to bo tho owner of certain lands in Cook County, thereafter described, being at that time well ad vanced in years, when ouo Alexander W. Mo- Oluro, who Is made defendant, approached tho old man, and offered to perfect tho title, where upon an agreement was entered into by Alex ander Boblnson and his son, tbo complainant, on tho one part, and MoOluro on tho other part, that McClure should take stops to perfect said Utlb, upbn his successfully accomplishing which, ho was receive in full payment therefor ono-half of sold lands, tho other half to belong to tho. complainant, for which purpose o deed of trust was to bo prepared convoying said lands to MoClnro, ono-half to belong absolutely to tho complainant and ono-half to McClure, when pos session had beon successfully obtained. After nemo months passed in negotiation, MoOluro presented four deeds for execution,’ namely, a conveyance of part of tho lands from tho old man to hla son, tho complainant, a convey ance of those last mentioned lands from the complainant to MoOluro, and two other deeds from tho older Boblnson, convoying all tho lauds in dispute to McOiuro, tho latter representing distinctly that they woro in trust only for tho purposes above named. Neither tho son or father could toad, and both woro cautioned not to speak of tho transactions. Tho’ throo deeds from Alexander Boblnson wore duly signed, in good faith, on tho IGth of November, 1871, and that from tho complainant to McOiuro on tho 22d of tho samo month. The property bo conveyed consisted of • 169 56-100 acres, being part of that port of tho south section of the tract known as Robinson’s reservation (Dosplolnoa River), sot apart from said south section to. said Alexander Robinson, by dcctoo of partition of said Robinson’s Roser . vatlon, In tho Cook County Court, May 20, A, D. 1843, the consideration alleged being 910,173; a tract consisting of the south fraction of tho southeast quarter of See. 2-i, 36, 14, containing MG 07-200 aoroa: tho northeast quarter of See. 80, 37,16, containing 117 G7-100 ; and tho south west portion of tho southwest quarter of . Sec. 5, 86.14, containing 54 77r100 acres. Tho complainant goos on to allege that np con sideration whatever was received from McOluro for such transfers, and nothing over done to ab rogate said trusts: that Alexander Robinson died on tho 22d April, 1872 ; that sinco tho exe cution of said conveyances McCluro has procur ed from tho President of tho United States his approval of saiddooda of said lands in Robinson's Reservation (McOluro has so stated to tho com-' plainant), and has commenced proceedings to clear and perfect said title to tho wiiolo of said lands, in his own name, and without reserving any right, titlo, or interest of tho complainant to - any part thereof ; that without complainant’s knowledge or consent, said McOluro on' tho 7th , January, 1873, executed a trust deed to Wm. Tolcott.of said IG9 GG-lOO'kcres. to se cure the payment or $1,600, duo by McCluro to James H. Abbott, on a. promissory note : and later, a contract for solo of half of said 169 66- 100 acres ,to said Abbott for §3O per aero. And' . bo further represents that ho is in poor health, . and desires to settle up his affairs so as to placo them in a more safe and certain condition for bimsolf and family, and that as soon as ho loomed that said deeds to McCluro contained no recitals of said trusts, ho applied to him to have the matter righted without delay, hat without effect, until about tho beginning ox ibis month, . when McClure said ho had concluded to giro complainant .& deed ,of fifty . acres lying wost of Desnlainos Rlvor, and road over, in a low, hurried manner, some thing that ho alleged ■to bo a receipt xor tho same, .which ho would not suffer to bo taken out of his hands, but which tho complainant subse quently signed, learning not until lately that it was a release of all claims upon tho whole of his' lands. And said McClure having always refused to give complainant any written document, de fining his rights, and having always insured nb solute secrecy as to tho wholo. of those transac tions, and there appearing no other way of ob taining relief, ho prays tho Court to enjoin tho defendant in any way interfering with said lands, and to docl&ro tho rights and title of all parties heroin. A temporary injunction was granted. Tho other sldo has to bo hoard from. . THE SOUTH PARK CASE PRACTICALLY DECIDED. 9 The hearing of tho cause, Clark v. tno South Bark Commissioners, was yesterday continued . before Judgo Drummond. Tho arguments showing a tendency to degen erate into a discussion, The Court said ho had heard enough to enable him, he thought, to understand the case. With out criticising tho evidence, and tho allegations contained in tho bill, ho was inclined to think that the bill must bo sustained on tho ground that tho plaintiff, being tho ownor of tho tract of land that bad boon expressly designated for appropria tion for park purposes, had a right to insist that bis property should not bo subjected indefinite ly to the claims of tho Commlssiouors, and (ho result that might arise out of those claims, with out the compensation provided for by law being paid or soenrod. Tho Court, therefore, would say by way of suggestion to tbo counsel, that the defendant must bo restrained from inter fering with or taking possession of tho proper ty of the plaintiff until this had boon arranged; at tho same time observing that nothing that bad appeared in tho case, in his opinion, pre vented the defendant from proceeding under tho laws of tho State to condemn tho property of tho plaintiff for tho public uses provided for la tho act, inasmuch as tho Supreme Court of this State bad substantially decided in several cases before it, that the act of tho Legislature was a lawful exercise of power, and that property could bo condemned for certain public purposes under Che laws of tho State. Independently of the law of tho State, there might arise other ques tions during tho progress of the cause respect ing proceedings for condemnation, which should be left to tho State Courts to pass upon, and with which this Court did not desire to interfere. This Court considered, however, that it had tbo right to protect tho plaintiff in hie prop erty. The Court threw out those remarks to counsel on both sides by way of suggestion, and would not enter any order until to-morrow (to- day}. Mr. Ayer thought tho suggestion of the Court would have tbo appearance of success iu tlio causo on tbo part of tbo plaintiff, and it might have an injurious effect as regards tbo future action of tbo Commissioners. Tbo Court replied that ho was of opinion that tho property was subject to condemnation; and this was one of tbo objects that tho Court had in view, when be stated that a Btato court was tbo 6 toper tribunal to decide many of tbo quos ons that must wise under this. bill. And tbo Court further considered that, whilst the property was subject to condemnation, it was also tbo duty of those author ised under tbo act to proceed to condemn it, as well as to provide the moans for its purchase, whether by levy or otherwise. Tho bill was framed particularly on the ground that tho pro ceedings taken, or to bo taken, by tho Commis sioners wore unconstitutional, ana that tho laud could not bo condemned, and [ids (ho Court over ruled, whilst tho injunction should bo granted. THE DLAUE-TIIOMraON CASE RESTORED. Another phase of tbo notorious Bl&ko divorce ease was evolved yesterday, Tbo complainant in tbo original suit yesterday filed In tho Circuit Court restored declaration and affidavit, charging Thomas M. Thompson -with debauching hla wife and alienating her affections, and for tho lona of her comfort, fellowship, society, and assist ance complainant Books to obtain from de fendant tho aum of $20,000.

A TRADE THAT DID NOT COMB OFF. Christian Stoldt brings action in tho Superior Court against Mary I. and Richard T. Groan. Complainant on March 7, 1872, owned land in tho northoast corner ol tho northwest quarter of Section 29, Town. 38, north of Raugo 11 oast, containing twonty-fivo acres, whereon ho resid ed. On tho date [aforesaid ho mado a contract for tho .exchange thereof for a farm in Kano County, belonging to Mary J. and Richard T. Green, together with stock and farm implements. Thebonlract,which woo made under tho condition that each party should furnish a clear title to their property, was duly recorded. Complain ant on several occasions subsequently askod defendants to produce an abstract of titlo to thoir property, but thoy woro unable to do uo, as several lions tuoreon existed,—among thorn ono of §6,000. Finally, bo decided to back out of tho contract, and did so, ns defendants woro un able to consummate it; and now ho wished to obtain from defendants a release and discharge of record of said contract, which thoy will not grant. Wherefore ho prays that thoy may ho summoned in a court of equity to answer in the caso, and remove all cloud from complainant’s title. NE EXEAT. A. writ of so exoat was obtained and served on Monday evening, at the instance of one Henry Broyor. against Jacob Baker and Edward Tophi. Tho origin of the arrest is as follows : On April 18,1878, suit was brought bv oao Patrick Iritz gorald against Baker and Topin, by the issuing of a writ of attachment against veal estate own ed by them, and the Sheriff attached chattel property of theirs, consisting of “CDhoad of cattlo and one bay mare.” On tho 10th of April, at their request, plaintiff, in conjunction with defendants, executed a forthcoming bond to tho Sheriff in tho penal sum of $2,885.05, that tho said property should bo forth coming to answer the judgment of tho Court. Lately, it appears, Baber and Topin have felt n hankering for tho balmy gales of Indiana, and purchased farms In that State, to do which, com plainant believes, they sold all their real estate in Illinois, and woro at tho point of soiling tho cattlo which woro attached by tho Sheriff, and released by tho forthcoming bond, and moving in tho direction favored by tho star of empire. Complainant did not fancy being loft the one solo available signor of a bond with a penalty of nearly $8,000; so ho wont energetically to work, got out tho writ of no exeat and tho* would-be escapadists woro secured.

If ho would also got a copy of tho Constitution of tho United States, and road it carefully, ho might avoid somo of tho blunders which characterized hia article entitled “Ex Boat Facto.” While it is true that those words, as used in tho Constitution, arc limited to crimi nal statutes, it is not true, as asserted by (ho Journal, that they are the only laws prohibited by tho Constitution. Tho language of tho Constitution is, that no Slate nhull “ pans any ox-ponl-facto law, or law impairing the obU'jalian oj conirocta," A perusal qf the authorities cited by him with no much pedantic ostentation would have in formed him that it was because civil causes were jeforrod to in other terms that the words ox post facto wore limited in application to laws of a criminal nature only. lie will doubtless And, on further research, that a charter is a contract within tho moaning of thcfhinguago above referred to, as decided by Chief Justice Marshall in tho Dartmouth College cave ? but ho was probably an “ antediluvian," and deserved impeachment for his opinion, Chicago, April. 1873.

If such disregard of tho positive Instructions of tho Superintendent of Police Is continued, there Is every rea son to believe that It will bo followed by a removal. The encounter In question occurred at No. COS ’West Madison 'street, between two colored men, William Brown and Jesse Jones. Tho details of tho affair are ad follows • • ■William Brown Is tho proprietor of a barber shop at the above number, ahd.Joaso Jones has: boon for some time In bis employ. Brown’s ros -1 Idotico was over the shop, and, taking advantage of this fact. Jones bocamo-vory Intimate, with, : Brown’s wire. Mrs. Brown was not at all averse ito tho young man’s attentions, but reciprocated hia attachment. Clandestine mootings were planned and consummated, and loving glances exchanged whenever their eyes could possibly moot. Brown,who before hod not thought of his wife once hia fortnight, now began to think often of her. Ho grow enraged over tho condi tion of affairs, and mode it so unpleasant for the young men Jones, that on last Monday a week ago, ho loft Brown’s service. • Brown not only visited liia anger upon Jones, but also upon tho person of his wife, by boating her so severely that she was compelled to take her bod. During her. Illness Jones, it .'la said, made frequent visits to her room. ; Last Saturday jouos • returned to the shop of Mr. Brown, ana was again received into bis ser vice. The intimacy which had before existed was renewed, and that tho lovers might bo alone together Mrs. Brown became ill again and was confined to her room. -On Monday afternoon Brown returned to his house from down town, in an intoxicated condition. Tula was nothing very remarkable, aa lie baa boon for many years a hard drinker, and, therefore, a frequent board-, or at tho Bridewell. When drunk ho Is said to bo entirely devoid of reason, and a perfect boast. ; On tho afternoon referred to, not finding Joaos in tho ohop, ho at once surmised that ho was up-stairs with hia wife, who was confined,’ as usual, to her bed. Ho proceeded directly to. her apartment, and, as ho reeled Into the room,, Jones arose from the bed, as if ho bad boon lying down. Brown at once flow into a violent passion, and demanded that ho immediately leave the room. Jones , would not go, and en deavored to cool tho passion of tho Irate husband by reasoning with him. Brown would not bo cooled, and, seizing an iron skillet from off tho etovo, pounded the invader o£ his homo on the ..head With .it until lie fell insensible upon 1 tho floor. Mrs. Brown’s screams attracted tho at tention of tho barbers down stairs, and, Justus Jones fell, they rushed, into tho room. Brown was yet very drunk, and was only prevented from boating his wife by being overpowered by hia harbors. A. physician was called in, and tho matter hushed up. Ho' pronounced tho wounds very serious but not dangerous. Tho death of Jones, at 8 o’clock yesterday morning, and tho post mortem examination made by Dr. Emmons yesterday afternoon, which developed tho fact that tho negro’s skull was fractured almost from oar to oar, over the front of the head, do not speak much for tho opinion of tho attending phy sician. Jones died without uttering a word, and, ap parently,'.without pain. Brown was arrested by Officer Roche, of the Union Park Station, at a late hour on Monday night. Ho was arraigned at the West Side. Court, ..before Justice Scully, yesterday morning, charged with the crime of murder. Ho pldaaod nob guilty to tho charge. ' Tho case was continued ! without bail, and tho prisoner removed to tho County Jail. Ho is; apparently, about 35 years of ago, and has lived in Chicago. years. It is said that ho has served some time in tho Penitentiary at Joliet. - A reporter of I’nETnimmE attempt ed an interview with him at the jail last evening. Ho refused to eayanything except that “ ho saw Jones at his wife’s bedside.” Nothing was done toward holding on inquest yesterday, except to secure tho witnesses and ‘make a post-mortem examination, the’ result of which has already boon slated. Tho inquest will bo hold at 10 o’clock this morning. SHE WOULD AND SUE WOULDN’T, A Curious Illustration of now Vir tuous and It expectable a Combined and Ben of I*rov» tltutiou .Becomes After Its License is Bevolccd* ; When ho or sho can make money by being vicious and dopravod, ho or sho is only too glad to onoourago tho popular idea of Ids or hor depravity. But when tho excess of his or hor viciousncss causes Mayor Modill to rovoko.his or her liconso to sell liquor, then ho or sho invaria bly repudiates as utterly fallacious and unauthon licatod,. tho. stories set afloat to that purport. This was forcibly illustrated yesterday in tho Mayor’s office,‘ by tho woman Ella Brown, alias Waldron, alias “ Dolly Varden,” propriotfosa of tho den of iniquity known as tho “ Dolly Varden Parlors;’ 1 Her liconso was revoked yester day morning, and as soon as tho notlco of revo cation was served upon her sho raado hor way to tho Mayor, and bogged that hor license might bo restored. Tho Mayor said sho kept tho worst den .on tho West Side, and, therefore, it was useless for hor to bog any such favors at his bands. Tho woman, whoso reputed vioionaueßS was hor principal advertisement, assorted hor unblemished purity *, declared that blvo was a woman of unquestioned virtue, that her parlors woro conducted ou principles of tho stoniest morality, and that sho had two daughters who lived blameless lives beneath hor hallowed roof. Tho Mayor reiterated bis remark and told hor that ho would on no account lot hor have her li cense back. Thus this place has lost one of its attractions. Now Capt. French can and must, if ho wishes to preserve his star, pull the house until ovory prostitute in driven away/ from it. Other similar dens are to bobrokou up as fast as the revocation notices are served. It appears that Superintendent Washburn has Ki express orders for monthshack to hie Cap to extinguish thOBO horrible dens, and has especially directed Cant. French to cloan out McLaughlin’s abominable brotbol, but no atten tion has boon paid to hi» commands. Why dot* ho not arraign his subordinates boforo tbs Board? Nothing can oxtonuato their negli gence. THE CITY IN BRIEF. Tho Board of Public Works yostorday accepted tho bid of Edward Kelly for tho repairs of street lamps, at CO cents each.
