EEOM THE COURTS. A Batch of Heavy Suita Commenced Yesterday In the. United States Circuit* Court—Over $160,000 In* > vohred. Yesterday, Messrs. Tenneys, - Flowers & ■ Abercrom bie, attorneys for the Assignee of Lewis W. Cass, ft, E, Jenkins, commenced suit against Janies Baxter, In case, $40,000 damages, in the United States Circuit J Court. Lewis W. Cass was a dealer in clothing on 'South nurk street, and it was charged agains 1 pim and the said Baxter 'that they con eplred together to defraud ' the creditors, s pretended sale being made to Baxteryunder which he acquired possession of the bankrupt’s goods, and got rid of most of them before effectual action could be taken. The whole of the proceedings in this case have been of an extraordinary character; possession of the goods was taken by Baxter at midnight; they were secreted in various parts of the city and State'; they were transferred by wagons and by railroad to different dties, and quantities were traced to various parts of the Union, and there held by United States Marshals, A whilst the question of law was being tried here. There * were a large number of injunctions filrd and suits com menced, the Baxter party, amongst others, bringing action against officials of the court, in case, for heavy damages. In the history of bankruptcy proceedings here, rarely has a case been fought more stubbornly and ably on both sides. Messrs. Tenneys, Flowers & Abercrombie now bring suit aa above, to recover the value of the goods that Baxter has succeeded in mak ing away with, and upon the issue of thin suit depends 3 whether the creditors are to receive a'large or dividend. In the same court, Edward Neatamayer brought suit, in case, SIOO,TOO damages, against Paul Eothbirth. Edward Koch, H. . B. Payson, and Ferdinand E. Cauda. This -is a suit to decide the ownership of the artificial stone patented by the plaintiff. This discovery comes from Bavaria, where, also, the sand brick was originated, and a brick that becomes the harder with exposure, and more and more solid and cohesive with age, and which does not appear to have yet reached the United States. The damages are for losses alleged to have been sustained by plaintiff in consequence of the defendants’ discov ering and working bis patent in' the West, without his knowledge or license, ho at the same rime owning a patent la the United States. * George Pomeroy commenced suit In' the same court against Frank B. Chandler, Ed ward Pomeroy, and Ed ward H. Noyes, partners under tho style of Chandler, Pomeroy & Noyes, on a note for SIO,OOO, bearing inter est at 10 per cent, signed by the defendants In - .their firm name, and payable at the' Manhattan National Dank of New York. Principal and interest both re maining unpaid, suit was brought. Johnson, Shaw, and others also' commenced suit, in r (be same court, against H, C. Judd, J. H, Boot, and £. 1 JL Owen, In assumpsit, SIO,OOO. In the same court several bQls In Chancery were filed, among them John Flynn v. W. Oberznan, for in junction to restrain infringement of •& patent for an Improvement In bed bottoms; and Calvin G. Udell r. Bufus S. Payne and Joshua Y. Pavne, for injunction to restrain infringement of a patent for extension lad ders. HE MARRIED FOR MONEY, • David Cashen was brought before Justice Banyon yesterday morning, to answer to several charges, the gravest of which was perjury. Though the case was continued for a week, in order to procure farther evi dence, the testimony thus far adduced proves tha* Cashes is a scoundrel who richly merits severe punish ment. He was arrested on Friday last for having in duced an Inexperienced girl of 14 years to be come his ' wife, 'which necessitated the* pro curing of a-' marriage certificate by perjury- Xt appears that Cashen had been acquainted with the girl’s family for some time, and was on 'rather intimate terms with them two weeks ago, when the girl returned from boarding-school on account of tier health. He discovered at their first meeting that khe waa full of romantic nonsense, and that, with a little care, ehe could be used to assist fri™ in getting possession of some of her mother’s property, worth In the neighborhood of $25,000. In two days he had wained such control over her that she consented to elope with him, and, in order that the necessary expenses of the trip might .be defrayed, she Appropriated money and jewelry belonging to tier mother. Cashen went to. the - office of the County Clerk for a marriage license, and twore that the girl he was about to marry was over 18 years of age. He then took his dupe to Banyon’s ririvato office, and there the solemn ceremony was per ormedby that solemn judicial farce, who might have known, if he still retained any of the common sense with which he used to be credited, that the girl was tender age, and in the hands of a designing villain. IThe public would be pleased to know how Hr. Banyon was hood-winked on that occasion. On the day fol lowing the fraudulent marriage, Cashen visited his knother-ln law, and after informing her of what had taken place, coolly demanded that himself and ‘wife be Admitted to the house as members of the family. The mother refused to believe that her daughter had al lowed herself to be led astray, and, aa -the girl was sheh at home, she was called and questioned. She ad knitted that she was Cashen’s wife, and said she would feo away and live with him unless her mother consent ed to let him remain in her house. Being a shrewd Woman of the world, the mother saw at a glance that panhea cared nothing for the girl, and that all he want ed waa money. She sent for a policeman; and ordered Vtis removal from her premises. This was accomplish ed without difficulty, but the girl followed him, end nothing was . heard of either of them tontU within a few days ago. Meanwhile, the S- had been given into the hands of Capfc, r, who detailed Sergt. Buckley and Detective her to procure the necessary evidence and bring Cashen to justice. The arrest was made on Friday, she girl also being taken into custody. There were kwo women in court yesterday ready to swear that they Were deserted wives of Cashen,. but their testimony will not be taken until next week. After Banyon had Clodded to postpone the case, he ordered* that the girl £>e restored to the custody of her mother, and that Cashen be held in heavy bonds for his appearance. THE SPORTING WORLD.

A Girl Takes a Dose of morphine and TTill Probably Not Recover* A dose of morphine will probably cause u one more unfortunate V to leave this unhappy world.- She bad wandered from the straight path, only a short time, but her brief experience in the. I*gilded 1 *gilded palace” and among its inmates was sufficient to induce her. to at tempt to commit suicide. Her name was Cora Beed, and, unlike many of her class, her parents are respectable. They live In ibe village of Watseka, in this State, and had no idea until last evening that their daughter had been leading a life of shame, fib" ram* to this - city only two months ago, and wrote home that she had se cured honorable employment. Six weeks ago she be came an Inmate of the bagnio of -A" o ** Stewart, on Fourth' avenue. Why she took this step no oue knows; she never told who betrayed her. She re mained there until Tuesday, changing her “ boarding place ” and transferring her trunk to the house of Bell Demi eke, on South Clinton street. While here several of the male visitors told Miss Demicke that the girl was not to bo trusted—that sho would steal and do all kinds of wicked deeds. These stories were overheard by Miss Beed, and she became gloomy and-despondent, refusing to be consoled, but maintaining her innocence. She had been suffering from intermittent fever,and took quinine and brandy to break It up. Yesterday morning she went out, and upon her return it was noticed she had a small package. When questioned regarding Its contents, she replied that It was “ quinine." At 3 o’clock in the afternoon she went to her room. An hour afterwards she was found in a stupor, with the' empty package labeled “morphine” beside her. A physician was at once sent for, and when he came he showed by his manner that he did not desire to be “ mixed up" in the affair. He gave it as bis opinion that she would recover. Upon his departure another doctor was called In, and did what he could to relieve the girl. Late last evening she was still unconscious, and it was thought probable that she would died. &er father, whose name is William Beed, -was telegraphed to, • and -Is expected to-night. In the pocket of one of Miss Reed's dresses was found this note;; - “My father’s name is William-Reed. He lives at Watseka, HI. Send my clothes and body to Mm ; he will pay all expenses. The stories you have heard are false." The girl is about 21 yean of age, and quite pretty, ESCOXSTISCY. And now Detective Dennis Simmons, having read the paragraph concerning him In yesterday morning’s Tbxbuke, has seen At to disclose the particulars of the so-called elopement case. They are as follows: Mr. Harry Bedifer, a dealer in eploee In this city, once lived in Kansas City. There ho wooed a woman calling herself Jessie Brooks. They were mar ried by a Justice of the Peace, and last June removed to Chicago. Tbey took np their residence at Ko. 200 West like street. In a few weeks the bride became restless, and, at her earnest solicitation, they went -. to boarding. They lived in com parative happiness until last Monday, when the woman proved herself faithless by leaving the for parts unknown, taking with her a trunk of cloth ing (to which she had a perfect right), and about $2,000 wbrth of jewelry. The irate husband reported her flight to Sergt. Ellis, who detailed Denny Simmons to go in pursuit. Aurora, Peoria, Calumet, and all the large cities of the State, as well as some small towns on the borders, prominent .among which was St. Louis, were visited, but without farther suc cess than that the woman’s past life was laid bare. It seems that she has made a' business of jumping spoony men. In St. Louis, in 1869, she ran away from one Frank Long, after having been lawfully married to him. Before that ehe was a lewd woman in Mem phis, and was known as Mattie Clemmons, HAHNEMANN HOSPITAL The Board of Trustees of the Hahnemann Medical College held their annual meeting at the institution, on Cottage Grove avenue, yesterday afternoon. Dr. A. £. Email presided, and there were present of the Trustees Hon, J. 7. Scammon and D.D. 8. Smith; and Dn. Ludlam, Danforth, Colton, and Hoyne, of the Faculty. Dr. Hoyne, Secretary of the Hoard of Managers, read their report: ■ In June, 1870, the building, which has since been occupied as a hospital, was donated by J. 7. Scammon to that purpose, and placed in the charge of the Faculty of the Hahnemann Medical College. The expense of maintaining the hospital was borne for one year by Mr. Scammon, when the responsibility was transferred to . the Faculty, • who . appointed a committee to ' take charge of it. This Committee consisted of Dr. A. £. Small, President; Dr. Hoyne, Secretary ; J. 7. Scammon, Treasurer, and Drs. Ludlam, Danforth, and Mitchell. In May, 1872. Mr. Scammon donated ue land on which the hospital stands, upon certain conditions* The lot is 60x160 feet, situated directly east of the College building, and valued at $15,000. - Thereupon the Belief and Aid So ciety gave- a like donation of $15,000 in money, upon the condition that the sum bo expended in erecting a building upon the lot. In the summer of 1872. the north wing, 80x40 feet, including a clinical amphitheatre, was built, and $2,000 ex pended - upon it, and in - making other Im provements. The Treasurer’s report showed that the total expenditures up to March 24, 1873,. were $16,270.87; receipts from aU sources to same date, $22,025.75; balance, $5,745.88. The property owned by the hospital is worth $30,000; Che fixtures, etc., $3,000. The extension of the north wing to the east end of the lot (the building being now m course of erection) will cost $9,000. The hospital was at first named Scammon Hospital by the Committee, but waa changed In March, 1873, on motion; of Mr. Bcom mon. to the Hahnemann Hospital. It. only remained for tne Committee formally to do what they had prac tically done,—tender the Hahnemann Hospital, with all its title papers, etc,, to tho’ Trustees of the College, and to request that. the formal acceptance be entered upon the records of the Board of Trustees. The report was accepted. - Dr. Hoyne stated that, when the Addition to the hos pital was made, the college would be $3,000 in debt. It was proposed to raise the amount by “ systematic begging.” . • . Dr. Ludlam bad no doubt that many people. If ask ed, would contribute to support the hospital; as he expressed it, “ the public ought to be milked to nourish It in. the future.” • ' On'motion of Mr. Scammon, the existing Provisional Board of Managers were continued in . office until otherwise determined. * The meeting then adjourned. THE EXPOSITION. A meeting of the Board of Directors of the Inter state Industrial Exposition was held yesterday after noon, in the club-room of the Sherman House. The meeting was called for 3 o’clock, but was not brought to order'until 16ng.after that hour.

SHERIDAN’S BILL OF RIGHTS. . Superintendent 'Washburn recently Issued an order, numbered 4 ‘ Order No. 20,” directing patrolmen to in vestigate every saloon on Sunday, and discover whether liquor was being sold there contrary to law; also, to find out whether gambling was going on, - The order was approved by the Board. Yesterday, Commissioner Sheridan presented the following protect: I protest because I regard the order as unnecessary, odious; and oppressive; because the member* of the police force are not vested under the charter with pow er or authority toUwf ally oomply with the order, and if they do comply with It, they wiU do so at their own peril, because it is, to :my mind, clesrly: unconstitutionAL Sec. 6, Article 80. a, of the Constitution being as fol lows: “Theright of the people to be eecure ln their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreason able searches and seizures, shall not be violated. 0 A reporter asked the Mayor what he thought of It, Bis Honor replied that it did not squarely meet the case. Saloon* could not be Included in the bill of rights, and a constitutional objection to the order was valueless. A saloon was not a private house. It was a public place, in which the proprietor was sail liquor. He did not think much of the protest. THE PUBLIC LIBRARY, The Library Board metyesterdayafternoon, present, Messrs. Hoyne, Shorey, Bosenthal, Anthony, Qneal, and flheahan. - The Secretary read a 'letter from My, Eobson, from which It appears the matter of binding the English Patent Specifications was finally settled.

The Board adjourned. A SAD STORY. The life of Mr. George W. Washburn, whose melan choly death at the County Hospital yesterday morning is recorded in another column, appears to .have been another illustration ,of the power of strong drink to overcome strong intellect. For many years deceased was a leading commission merchant in Boston. Be was very wealthy, and lived in great stylo, . The love for liquor overmastered him, and ho forsook , his counting-room and frequented saloons and tippling bouses. Since the Boston fire, bo bos been engaged with different insurance companies of city,.in set tling up their books. He reformed for a time, and concluded to come to Chicago, a place of some respon elbilityhaving been promised him by the Howe Sewing Machine Company.' Not meeting with the success he had anticipated upon hie arrival in this city, he sought consolation in drinking, and the rest of the sad story has been told, Mr. N, Faxon, whp Is his brother-in-law, yesterday received a dispatch from Washburn’s wife, from Quincy, Mass., asking if he had seen her husband. The answer which Mr. Faxon was compelled to return has doubtless filled one house, at least, with mourning.. Deceased leaves a wife and four children. The body will be taken to Boston for burial this afternoon. BETTER NOT COME The following letters were handed Superintendent Washburn, yesterday morning: Jfr. Waehbum, Chief o/Police: Beau Sib : Will you have a satisfactory answer given to this gent. Many years have elapsed since I drtio , and the business has changed so much that I. do not feel capable of advising Mr. O. H. V. D. Yours re spectfully, Cbablks Knight. Burraxo, April 16. —Friend Knight: Although not having heard of you, or from you in some years, I am emboldened by our old friendship to oak you a rather delicate question.' I have been keeping a private poker room here for some time post, but as all the rooms In the city have been closed by the authorities, I find it necessary to remove to another city, and according to common report there is none so favorable to my views as Chicago. I have written to you to know what your views are about the matter, and also whether you could assist me in getting up a game.. Tour friend. Chaulzs H. Yah Dbisxx. A NEW SUBURBAN RAILWAW. .

This is what Gov. Ja cobs desires, and the bogus party have sought to evade.

'Until to-day. these rumors were directed against the banks. To day they were directed against well-known stock exchange firms which have - a wide reputation for strength and solidity. The names of four or five of these firms, it is said, were telegraphed to Western cities with the statement that they had suspended. This is the latest device of the bold band of operators. The trick and its devisers were equally denounced by reputable men of the. street, and an earnest demand Is made for a searching investigation, and for the proper punishment of those guilty. There was no foundation for the rumors. The general market made an improvement'at open ing of # to # per cent over the prices current at the close, but operators getting to work commenced to weaken before the first board.
