Tbo Northwestern Intor-Stato Collegiate As sociation bold an adjourned mootiog at the Grand Pacific Hotel yesterday morning. Atten tion was called to tho report of the oratorical contest which appeared in tho morning Tribune, In which it was stated that tbo Misses Chapman and Kent woro prompted during tbo delivery of tboir orations at tho oratorical contest on tbo evening of May 4. As tbo young ladies had not boon prompted in any way whilo speaking, it was tho Bonoo of tho mooting that Toe Tridunb bo requested to correct the state ment in J notice to thorn. Avoto of thanks to tbo press of Chicago for the encouragement and generous support given tho Association was unanimously passed by tho Convention ; also, to the proprietors of Grand Pacific Hotel, and to the judges and Chairman of the contest. UHAmjLTEHATED ODBBEDNEBS. Christian charity and aristocratic penurlous ncss nover could blond together, as was exem plified daring tho present weak in a cer tain shoddy aristocratic house on Michigan avenue. Tho occupants, previous to tho 11m of tho month, woro a very respect able family, and in preparing for moving-day they kindly surrendered tho lower portion of tbo house to their successors two weeks before the time was up. Theinmccessora wore of a typo of Christianity too often soon in these lator doys,—always snapping and snarling with neigh bors, and presided over by an old termagant with a hook nose, who is ably seconded by her lum-peckod husband. A sister of tho lady living up-stairs dies on tbo day tboy intended to move. Following comes tho undertaker, when tbo termagant essoys to prevent his entrance atiho front door, by mason of her shoddy aristocracy, and directs him to take it in over a shod and in at an upper window at tho roar. Of course tho undertaker did no such thing. Then on tbo day of tho fu neral when the hoarse and carriages are at tbe door, tho old termagant places an embargo upon all proceedings, and forbids them to tabo tbo corpso down tbe front way. In this emergency, tho unfortunate people find it necessary to call tho asiristaoco of the police to teach Mrs. Old Termagant what Christian charity and civilized burial means. THE LUMBER-SHOVERS. BKP OF TUB TBOODLZ. In tbo last issue of Tax Tribune wero given the details of th.e strike of a number of •* ehov era" employed m the lumber district. A morning contemporary stated that but twenty mon worn engaged in the trouble, and that tho cause of ihe strike was a proposed reduction of wages from $2 to $1.76 per day. Now the truth is that last year tho men woro reduced from $1.76 to fcl.CO per day, and tho latter rate bos been tho price to the present time, and (ho foci s os given in Tub Tbibunb woro cor rect in every detail. Tho lumbor season has really not jot com* moncod, and will not for a couple of wooks to come. Not toore tliao eight or too yards have boon receiving, and they only commenced Moo* day last, and the majority will not begin to take in stock until after the 15th lost. Daring you terday a Tnuums reporter took a stroll through tho lumoor district, and visited a number of yards. Everything was quiet, but here and them excited groups of Bohemians stood discussing tho situation. At Kelly, Wood tc Co.’s yard on Twenty-second street there wore probably forty idlers standing about, moat of ■whom wors sinkers. They wore quiet and orderly, but declined to have much to say to the reporter. One of the men etatod that if the wages were reduced to £1.25 be coaid not eoo bow they could Ilvo, for provisions and clothing wore not reduced proportionately. On (bo dock of D. T. droves A Co. not loss than 800 of tho strikers congregated dating the afternoon. They were not demonstrative, but quietly watched the unloading of a propeller without molesting any one. The reporter con versed with ONE OF THE MOST IHTELIJOEKT of the party, who said that he had a wife and fiv* children. This waa the firat day’s work be had had eluco the ISth of October last. Daring the winter he had to pay £1 a month root for a little hovel, which was increased to £5 since May 1. Hts work lasted about five months in tho vear. lie was in debt £2B for groceries; his children ..wore barefooted. At 01.50 a day he wontd make £8 a week, but tho work was not always steady. At £1.25 a day bo coaid not support his family, and be could not, at £1.50 a day for only five months in tho year, givo thorn anything else to eat than broad and beef. Last winter ho lived on corood beef and floor, with a few potatoes. He thought it very hard to reduce thorn at this time. Another man told a similar talc, and he had seven small children to support. *• 1 tell yon," said ho, "wo wore on (be verge of starvation last winter." AMONG TUB DRALBBB and manufacturers the feeling was generally against a reduction. Tbe operators claim that they have an ignorant elass to deal with, and that they have to bo shown bow to do everything they are Bet at. However, they think that a re daction of 26 ceutii on laborers' pay wonld not help the trade to nny extent, and, considering that they only have work for about Qve months in tbe year, ®1.60 a day was low enough wages. They also hold that the demand for lumber and labor will control tho price above anything else. Tbs trouble of Thursday originated in 8. B.' Martin’s yard. There, without further ado. Mr. Martin told his men that ho would redneo them to $1.25 per day from that tlmu on. The men at once quit work, and, there being a largo number of idlers in the vicinity, they soon swelled their forcoa to 200. They then visited tho Kirby Carpenter Company yards, near by, and the man at this place wore forced out, which now made the array about 400. They wont to Kelly, Wood & Co.’s yard, where they compelled the men to quit. They then wont to other places, but ebortiy after tho police In part dispersed them, A gentleman stated to the re porter that nearly all of the Bohemians were members of the Communist Society, and, unless their demands were complied with, there would probably be Irouhle. This, how ever, is not feared. To-day tbe.lamber*men will hold a meeting, but what their action will bo remains to be seen. The moo who wore arrested Thursday had a bearing before Justice bouliy yesterday morning, and were fined £1 each, the fines being suspend ed open payment of costs, the men being poor, and promising to be orderly in the future. DOM PEDRO. sn BhiXtLUX UUFZBOB MAKES A rLTIHO TUT TUtOOOU TUB CITI, The Emperor of Brazil, or, as be calls hJm •elf, Does Pedro d'Alcantara, arrived in Chicago yesterday morning at 7:15 from Baa Francisco. Ale come over tha Chicago, Darlington A Quincy BMd, and, ia anticipation of hia arrival, a Aurital og Iv 9 el wriou Uon-feaat«i as lombled at (be depot. Opt. Ibo Imperial car nu iwltolied off at Canal street, where Chief* Engineer Obesbrough end Messrs. Jewett end Angell, of the Pullman Company, were In well* Ing. It bed been Intimated by telegraph that the Emperor desired to investigate the crib, eod eiteem tag wee Id readiness. Entering oar* lieges, the party drove repidlv through the drizzle end fog to Clerk .street bridge. The et«am*tug Mary MoLane lev bumping against the dock, and In a few mlnntoa the voyag ora bad embarked. There was nothing in'the excursion or the notion of the excursionists to indicate the presence of Royalty. Tho Emperor appeared more interested in what lay In eight than In any ezactlone of roapoot for bl« dig* nitv. The tug steamed down tbo river andander tho bridgoe. As she approached the first, Dom Pedro alternately eyed the emoke-staok and the bridge. Just as tbo boat went under, ho saw the ntnoke-elaok give wav. and his heart jumped. The next moment Ibo slack waa np again, ranch to the Imperial delight. The low-lying fog and tho cold, penetrating rain concealed tbo beauti ful landHcape along tho banks of the river, but Dom Pedro consoled himself that ho would have a good viow of Chicago after reaching the lake. As the steamer passed under tho frowning walls of an elevator, its uses wore explained to his Majostv, who expressed poignant regret that two accidents, which detavod him (a tho Wool, should have prevented a thorough examination of one of those institutions. Out of toe mouth of the river, and the Empe ror woe again at sea. The vapor lay thick and heavy, obliterating Chicago from tho majestic vision and leaving tho gentleman from Alcan tara to guess how it looked. Tbo lake was rough, but the Emperor seemed to havo bis Imperial soo-toga on, and though ho pitched around tbo wheel-house eotne. ho man aged to sustain a right royal perpendicular. The Eilot smiled os the Emperor topped over onco. ut tho pilot did not know ho had an Emperor to laogh at. In fact tho crew wore in democratic Ignorance of Rio presence of Royalty. From tho top of a high wave tho crib was visi ble close at hand. In a short time tbo boat woe beside it, aod after some Utile difficulty the party landed. Dom Pedro hod come to see tho water-works and he wont right at it. Thero was no delay. He walked rapidly from one point of interest to auothor, hurriedly asking questions and commenting liberally on what ho saw. Finally ho climbed to tbo top of the tower, hut there was nothing to be seen from thero, aod then, like another Emperor before him, he climbed down again. But a abort time wasspent at the crib. Prep arations had been made on the Fort Wayne Road at 9 o'clock, and Uia Majonly wan fearful that things wouldn't wait for him. Tho trip back was made in a short time, and the party landed a few minutes before 9. Mr. Sol Smith mot the Emperor at the dock, and banded over a wad of depreciated, tho amount called for by a draft forwarded a few days before. He of Brazil stuffed the negotiable in his clothes as eagerly as a reporter would bis salary, and those who saw tho operation realized that a King is but a man after all. Tbo special ear had boon charged to the muz zle with comestibles during tho tnp to the crib, and nos ready to go off an soon ns tbo party ar rived. Horn Pedro bade his hosts a fraternal adieu and entered bis car, followed bv Sonor Bom Beliro, Honor O’Kolli, of tho New York Ucraldo , and a few servants. Tbo train pulled ont at 0 o'clock, and the clouds wept that one man should possess tho power to “go through” Chicago in two hours. THE NEW COUNCIL. PREFAB ISO TO OUST TUB ÜBDBPEB. Tho bnsineaa-llho manner in which tbo now Council have begun operations on tho common enemy has created a visible effect already. The political hacks and shysters who oilng to tbo acting Mayor as tho last hopo of a continuance of the means of ill-gotten gains wore unusually busy yesterday. Colvin’s supporters kept close at his back and hold frequent consultations. Around tbo usurping Mayor’s Nest, in tho halts and corners, wore groups of tbo usurper's most active laborers in earnest and close con versation. They aro evidently troubled, and tboy know and fo&r that their dirty tricks and schemes are liable to weigh but little compared with tbo united and intelligent action of tho mon who compose tbo majority of the new Board of Aldormon. The Mayor has said that ho will preside over tbo mootiog next Monday night, and the disin terested ones look smilingly on and rub their bands at tbo prospect of tbo most public and at tbo same time the nloet hitter contest that has over taken place relative to city affairs. The evening la awaited with an earnest solicitude on tho part of tho friends of bummoriatn. Several of the newly-elected Aldermen hold a consultation, informal in its character, yesterday afternoon In the office of Mr. Thompson, in Helper Block, to talk over their plans of action In ousting tbo. usurper. Tboro wore present about a dozen. Mark Sheridan and Cullerton woro there. Of course tho reporters and alt outsiders were given tho cold shoulder. Tho resolution adopted at Thursday's meeting has been strictly sdbored to. No question can bring any response except “ I don t know,” or, with fingers to their lips, “Mum, is tbe word." One of tno number negatively allowed that all was going on oxsotly as was desired, and that nothing could exceed their convictions of a grand triumph lu vlow. It is said that Lawyer Jewett has handed in a rough abstract of his opinion on tho power of tbo Council to clear out tho miserable Blog that makes the City-Hall a mu nicipal disgrace, and that the document will be, when completed, able, lengthy, and exactly suited to tho views of ail fair-minded men. Judge Dent’s opinion has not yet appeared, bat is expected to-day at the general meeting or caucus of tbe new City Fathers. Tbo Aldor mon-oloctwlth|whomaTmuDNß reporter con versed on yesterday’s meeting eaid that all they wanted was to be lot entirely alone by tho press and public, as no interference could lend aid in any particular. They woro at work, and in the right way. They were get ting along swimmingly. In foot, tho batteries were almost ready to open on tho Coivin Ship of State, which, to uso an oft-repeated phrase, would soon be “knocked into a cooked hat.” They wero working quietly, but steadily. In yesterday's talk It was agreed to ask tbs leading papers in particular, and all capers in f;oneral, to remain silent on tho doings and lo cations of tbe now Council, for roasons known boat to tbsmsoivos. OBITUARY. THE LATE COL. SAMUEL OTOUB. Another aotivft, busy life of usefulness and honor has closed; another voice is bushed in death. Col Samuel Btono died Thursday night at tbo Grand Pacific, where ho had been living for some time. At the time of his death Col. Stone bad attained to an ago even beyond tbo limit wbioh the Psalmist set on human lifo, and bad soon 77 years of contact with the world. For tho the past few years his friends have no ticed hia growing feebleness, bat wore aopre- Eared to see him poos away. On last Saturday e was attacked with inflammation of tho blad der, and, in spite of all that medical skill could do, ho grew worse. and on Thursday night breathed ont his hto, surrounded by members of bis family and friends. Col. Stone was born at Chesterfield, Mass., where bis early life was passed. Leaving Massa chusetts in 1817 bo moved to Rochester, N. V. where bo remained some time, removing to De troit about 1843. While in Detroit Ur. Stone was engaged in the Btate Department for several years, and also hold a position in tho Board of Internal Improvements. Ho took a prominent part in tho building of the Michigan Central Railroad. and waa eelcctod as one of us first of ficers. Leaving Detroit, Ur. Htono spent a abort time in Milwaukee, hat, not liking the city, came to Chlcego along with such men as Cob 0. O. Hammond, A. T. Hall, and others, in 1852. and has resided hero over since. Mr. Btono made some very fortunate purchases of land in the region known as Brighton. This property appreciated so rap idly in value that after tho War he was enabled to dispose of it at a figure which left him a hand sumo profit on his investment, and has kept him in very easy circumstances ever since. Natural ly endowed with literary tastes, Ur. Stone de voted a large share of bis time nod money to tbo encouragement of literary, historical, and scientific societies. He was a prominent mem ber of the Academy of Bciooco, and of the Historical Bociety, occupying the office of Curator In the latter organization before the FUe, and earning the name of an efficient, hard-working member. To the Academy of Bci once bo was an Invaluable member, and contrib uted quite liberally on several occasions to its support. Ur. Btone was instrumental in secur ing the bast of Cob Foster, contributing £SOO towards that undertaking. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge to which Morgan, whose disappearance caused tho great aaii-Masonio excitement in Now York about forty yeara ago, belonged. Mr. Stone was also connected in a responsible way with the Western Union Tele graph Company. All who knew Col. Btone remarked upon hie generous, genial, so dal disposition, and it may be truly said that be hod troops of friends. He waa strictly honest and true in all his business transactions, and yet generously ebaritable to Un auflenog pool u& Btoue vos % great t THE CHICAGO TBIBUWCh SATURDAY.

Oregier as an* gloeer of the Water-Works, and the appoint ment m bis place of a man of whom but little is known might, grcatly.lmpair the water supply, and In case of fire prove disastrons to the city in general and their interests m particular. It was thought by thorn to be necessary to take some action In regard to this matter and to show Mayor Colvin and the Board of Public Works that a man was wanted in such a position who understood bis business and not a {taxable tool of a few trickv politicians. Therefore the Chi cago Board of Underwriters held an indigna tion mooting at their rooms, No. 127 LaSalle street, yesterday afternoon, when the matter was fully dleciwsod. The roforenooo mode to Mayor Colvin and bis administration were any thing bat complimentary, and many believed that if there woe not a change soon the rates of insurance would have to bo raised again, or else tho bettor class of insurance companies would have to withdraw from tbo city. The unwar ranted removal of Mr. Crogler was stigmatized as an outrage and a crime against the best In terests of the city. After a lengthy discussion, tbo following gentlemen were appointed a com mittee to investigate tho matter and find out whether tbo now appointee wan qualified for the position: Thomas Goodman, C. H. Case. George 0. Clarke, and Robert Critchell. As soon ns tho Committee boo completed its investiga tion it will call another meeting and submit a report in regard to tho matter, on which action will bo taken by tbo Board. CITY-HALL CHIPS. Water-rents yesterday wore $2,820, and re ceipts from tbo City Collector $067, Tbo Comptroller yesterday took in $6,000 from tbo sale of tax-ealo certificates. Tho Board of Publio Works nay-rolls for the month of April amount to $03,000. The boys sty that they would be satisfied should the pay bo as regular os tbo pay-roll. Dr. Deo Miller and some others of tbo Board of Health, or interested therein, were around tho City-Hall yesterday explaining votes on the award of tho recent contract for scavenger work. Tbe Board of Public Works will receive a call to-day from somo of tho county authorities who desire an expression from tbo Board on Court- House matters, and somo arrangements for driv ing tho piles for tho dome. The Board of Public Works opened bids yes terday for the construction of a pipe sewer on West Monroe street, from Oakley street west. There wore eleven bidders. Tbo lowest was Mr. W. 11. lliff. No contracts havo yet keen awarded. J. T. MoAnloy, of tho First Ward, James A. Kirk, of tho Eighteenth, and D. K. Piersons, of tbe First Ward, wore qualified yesterday for tbo oflico of Aldermen. Oaspar Butz was also sworn in ns City Clerk, but ho will not assume the con trol of tho oQIco till Mouday. Tho Building Inspectors yesterday tore down a small coal-house on Thirty-ninth street and notified the Trustees of tho ulich estate that the old and dilapidated structure on tbe corner of State and Twenty-second streets, known as tho Ulich Hotel, must comedown. The citizens of tho vicinity are pleased. Tbo new city certificates havo bean printed, and aro being prepared for issue. They are of different design from tbe old ones, and are not as good in point of appearance or point of work manship, being printed on an inferior quality of paper. But, as they will answer all purposes, those defects aro not regarded oa objectionable. Tbo Comptroller has not yet made up his mind when he will go East. There ie some busi ness to oe straightened out here first. The cer tificates must bo prepared for Issue, and, if pos sible, somo one must be found to take them. Mr. Hayes’ work in New York will consist cblefir in negotiating a loan or gathering money to meet the $1,800,000 that falls duo about the let of Juno. Tim Sullivan, a permit-clerk in tbe Water De partment, hoe received notice that bla services will no longer be required after tho present month has expired. Tbe reason for his dismissal is said to be that ho collected a water-tax of $8 and signed the name of Webster, one of tho Collectors of the Department, to tho receipt. Sullivan claims that be hod authority to sign Webster’s name, but this Is donlod by Webster. Moreover it is said tbtt Sullivan failed to turn ovor tbo money that ho bad collected. Many of the employes la tho various Depart ments are looking (or the “grand bounce," especially those of the Board of Public Works and tho Building sod Sidewalk Inspectors Do- Eartmente. In the number of employes of the oard another reduction is looked for, and the Inspectors are la trepidation lest the now Council might determine tbat their work conld os well bo done by some other branch of tbs city minions. The change In tbo heads of somo offices may bring changes. It was said that City-Clerk Butz would change bia assistants. Mr. Moody baa already boon retained, and Mr. McQurren will make room for somo ooe else. It was said that Ur. Edgar would also be removed, but it is doubted whether Ur. Butz will decide to remove him on account of the faithfulness and ability ho has displayed in tbe discharge of his duties. Besides, ho is thoroughly acquainted with the work, and is a favorite and a gonial, pleasant companion. Mr, Butz could ill afford to change him for a stranger. It baa been said that the only body that could successfully *• buck M against a corporation waa a railroad: bat Andre Mattosoo, of the Times, having fought and vanquished tho valiant Mika Evans, has concluded to boo bow the thing works In hia case with a cltr. Ho therefore re fused to pay bis water-assessments from November, 1875. to May, 1876. Dur ing last month, on the 20tb, 23d, and 21th days, the water was shat off from bis house. Nothing daunted,ho has turned it on again, and enjoyed tho convenience just as though be waa nob a tax-fighter. Everylime (he water has been tamed off it has cost £1.50. Total, £-1.50. Hoeing that Andro was as obsti nate ss over, tho authorities have decided to tear up tho street and shut off the street tap. Tbla will cost something like £lO or £ls, all of which Mr. Matteson will have to pay in connection with his assessments and the £1.60 extras be fore the clear and sparkling liquid will bubble from tbo faucet at his wish. Meanwhile he oau have the satisfaction of lapping a fire-plug, bor rowing from tho neighbors, or classing tumaolf with tbo thirsty and Oroat Unwashed. A morning paper gave circulation yesterday to a rumor stating that City-Attorney Tiitblll had made the appointment of Mr. Lalor as Assistant City-Attoruey at the dictation of Mr. Joseph Hedill, and that some malcontents bad persuaded tho Mayor to order Ur. Ivor's name stricken from the nay-rml. In regard to the appointment, Ur. Tuthiil says that not only Mr. Modlll, bat Qen. Smith, John M. Jewett, 0, T. Adams, E. A. Otis, and other gentlemen had so highly recommended Mr. Lalor that ho was obliged to acknowledge the recommendations. The appointment was dictated by no one. In regard to tbo statement that Mr. Lalor would bo obliged to work for nothing if he accepted the situation, there is not the slightest truth. In the lint place, the Mayor never directed (he Comptroller to take the name from tho pay-roll, Mr. Haves stated yesterday afternoon (bat tho Mayor would not dictate to him pa matters pertaining to his (Hayes’) official business, nor would the Mayor attempt to say whom Ur. Tuthiil should appoint, as it was en tirely out of his jurisdiction, and he would have no power to order the name takeu from tho pay roll if the appointment had been regularly made. The whole rumor waa a canard of the worst de scription. THE COUNTY BUILDING. George Lauerbier, of the Town of Worth, scut in hia resignation yesterday is Constable. Mike Evans, Architect Armstrong, ex-Com mlssioaer Crawford, ana sundry other important individuals, sauntered through the county offices yesterday. The Hheriff did not succeed yesterday In gath ering in any more of of his runaway boarders. He is relaxing no effort, however, and expects in a few days to have the most of them back. A bill of Farmer Harms, amounting to £11,600, for the Court-House foundation, was audited and ordered paid by the proper Committee yes terday. Following this, the Architect gave the old ganlunan an oierhauUm eboul bis oonenl# work, which will be brought to a focus to-day, provided an audience can be had with several dealers In oement. Joseph Conley, one of the repeaters convicted and sent to tbo Qonse of Correction far one year, came Into the Criminal Court yesterday, and succeeded In geltinghts sentence changed to t&reo month! 1 imprisonment and to pay a Quo cf S2OO. A few of the Commissioners propose to take a trip to Ullwsnkee Wednesday in search of stone for the new OourUUonse. Any undue interest they may take In visiting quarries around the country at this lime will scarcely be considered in tho interest of tho publio treasury. After the adjournment of the Criminal Court yesterdav, workmen seized upon the Job of al tering the internal arrangements of the court room very materially. Tho extent of tho altera tions is not yet known positively, but it Is calcu lated that the work will be ooraptoted to-day. and that when finished the improvement will be marked. Bergt. Kauffman, of the Signal Service, In this city, who has been ordered to report at Washington, is among tbs most efficient em f lojs of tho County Clerk's office. He loaves or Washington to-day, and takes with him let ters of introduction to our Barney and Carter. Ho dislikes the Idea of being called from Chica go, and thinks that through the Influence of these gentlemen ho will return la a few davs. If ho cannot remain boro, then It la likely bo will quit tbo service. The coll was unexpected to him, and he fails to understand what it means. toe couRT-notruß aoanf. Tbo Joint Committee on Publio Buildings add Service mot yesterdav afternoon to farther dis cuss the matter of advertising for the cat-stone and material for the now Court-House. Archi tect Egan waa pronont,oudmade some important suggestions and exhibited com 2 amendments to tbo original specifications for tho work, to cover the contingency of accenting bids for material in tbo rough. Tho Committee agreed to adver tise for bids for the work in the principal papers of tbo city for tho space of four days, commencing to-morrow, and to meet this afternoon to prepare tho advertisement. The question of pllicg for the city's half of the dome tor tiie building was also discussed, but no action was taken, pending a further conference with tho Boatd of Publio Works, it wan agreed that tho bids would bo opened Juno 1, for which a special mooting of tbo Board would bo hold. The Grand Jury yesterday bad before it the usual quantity of regular Jail coses, added to which wore florae petty complaints. The docket was practically cleared, an achievement never before made in tbe same length of time. All manner of rumors prevalloi in reference to the future oonrso of the jury as affecting investiga tions Into tho conduct of ofllcials, It was said that after today tho invootigatlons would be taken up. and then again it was said the Jury was anxious to get through, nnd would positive ly adjourn Tuesday. Andingatn, It was said tbe Investigations would bo limited to the recent Jall-osoapo nnd tho management of the Insane Asylum and Poor-House, and that a committee of tbe jury would visit Jefferson to-day. Tboso reports, or rumors, are given for what they aro worth, for whllo a reporter is ordinarily able to gather what has boon done, ho is not always com petent to road tbo minds of an oath-bouud body which ho is not privileged to boo. and who have been so partlcularlv guarded by tbo Court against tbo importunities of tbo friends of the ureas. Tho foatnro of tbo proceedings yester day was tbo refusal of a Ur. Huse to testify io a case of mayhem until ho had boon paid bis witness foes io advance. 110 was naturally marched into tho presence of tbo Judge, whore bo gained an entirely different idea of his duties as a citizen, Uo then condescended to toll what Uo know, which was very little, Tbe feature of to-day will bo tho apnoarauco of several mem bers of tho County Hoard in tho bopo of getting an indictment for perjury agaiuet tbo man Bmitb. who tcHtiflcd bolero tbo last Jury io ref erence to putting up SSOO for tho uao of tbe County Board In awarding a contract for light ning rods.

A young man named J. D. Steiger, a local drummer in tbo emoloy of O. L.

Tho case for malicious mischief against Mike Corcoran, Tim Casey, and John Corcoran, charged by Mrs. Scott, who koupu a dive on North Wells street, with throwing a beer-keg through her windows, was to have come up be fore Justice Kuufmaun yesterday, but the prose cution did not appear and tho Justice dismissed the case, rogardlug it as one of malicious prose cution.

Some sage has said somothiug about patting a beggar on horseback and lotting him ride to a very hot place indeed, but it remains fur mod ern sages to make a paiodigm about putting a revolver in tbe hands of a Yokefellow and let ting him kill himself. That is precisely west a very exemplary voung man tried to do yester day. Ho armed himself and marched eagerly to tbo fray, and when the proper moment came he neither knew walch was tho handle of the weapon nor whether to point it right, left, or perpendicularly to maka It shoot straight ahead. Tbe name of this religious Nimrod is 0. W. Cushing, a young man of 25 summers, and a partner in the printing firm of Cushing, Thomas d Co., located at No. 150 Clark street. Last December tne firm fonnd it necessary to dis charge tbe foreman of the office, a mao named Charles Parsons. Biuoa that time Parsons has feigned to be infatuated with two of Mr. Cush ing's sisters, employed in tbe same office, and because they have chosen to thwart all hit advance* towards them, be blamed tbe brother, and bmU ndoaa Uuesta against bis fife. At tba tin* of hit discharge, Parsons, It I« Mid. draw a knifa and a mallal open bli am* ployer and threatened to send him Into "king dom oome,” and tbia assault, weather with tba subsequent threats, baa prayed heavily npon Cuahlng’a mind. Faraona oontlnned to aend tbe young ladiea amatory eptstlaa, which woreaome timaa answered in indignant tanna by tba brother, who, in tarn, received tnaalting fatten from Faraona. To nettle the matter, Ibe two of them met yeaterday morning at Banda' llotel, on Waabfoglon street, near State. After a abort dispute in the reading-room, OnablogoaltedPar aone a liar, aud Faraona retaliated by calling both Cnabing and bis alatera by tlio eatno epltbot. C’usbiog replied with a blow, and Far aona brought down a billy of wood on Cnablng'a sboutdera, Tba byatanden aklpped out, and jnatln the nick of time, too, for Cnabing drew a revolver and fired away alt around the room, into tbo atove, celling, and floor, and every place olae that no damage could ensue. Ilia first abot was the only effective one. ahd that took effect in hia own left arm. Both ware arrested and bold In 9300 ball to tba 9th loai.
