Be had taken a caae-kmle (which hid been provided with hi* rupper) and breaking two or three inches of the blade had succeeded ia making a saw of tho re mainder. With this he was patiently working at one of the iron banal the window. Two hours of undisturbed Johor with this little instrument would probably have resulted in his escape. Be was immediately taken over to the tall, where be will be likely to remain until bis trial. Dunn is from Liverpool, England, and has latterly been a sailor. Be has sailed into a port that will be likely to detain him for some time. Ax Ixtostaxt Dtacorxar.—lt has been mslter of mnch surprise and comment that so simple, yet dangerous, an operation as the coupling of railroad can has remained so long without im provement, especially as so many inventions hare been ofered to the public as ostensible rt media for the evil. The difficulty and danger seem at lost to have been removed. We saw yesterday a air of draw bars, exhibited by Mr. C. D. Clinton, • ro i® the highest degree simple, perfectly self-acticg in coupling, can be uncoupled with perfect cose, and ia readily adaptable to the pres ent plan of link and bolt The Idea is eo simple and certain, that It ia a wonder that railroad men hire so long missed It. We will not attempt a description, bnt win say that Mr. Clint m baa with him two foil sized bars, st the Lloyd Boose, No 413 booth Clark oCreet, and will exhibit them from two to four p. m. dally.

A Motion for Further Specifications in the Hart L. Stewart Case Denied —A Motion for Alimony—A Decree Defused, In the divorce ease of raozjA rs. babtl. stewabt. on the motion that the complainant be required to spedfy person, place and circumstance con nected with the several acts of adultery charged aga nst him and that she be confined in her proot to the specification so made, Chief Justice Wilson, of the Superior Court, rendered a deoslon, deny ing the motion. The decision was In substance as follows: Ho stated that the question raised by tbe motion involved the question of pleading whether a demurrer could be susiatnoa to the bill, lu this connection be said * Adultery is charged, with the specification of both time, place aad person. That makes the bill on its face sufficient. A demurrer would not have been sustained, nor a motion to qaasb, and the party wonld here been ordered to answer npon tbe application of the pleader. This motion here is not npon the ground that there is no alle gation in the bill, w hich is issuable, even under tbe doctrine of feigned issues, because it the doc trine of feigned Issues obtained here, which it does not. It conlu be made np on the charges made. It is Just like any other issue in chancery, hut even where the rule is d'ffcrcnt, and where they follow tbe practice of the Ecclesiastical Courts, the courts which had ju risdiction under the English practice of this class of cases, and afterwards transferred them to tbe Chancery Court, for the consideration of that court, and where there Is a feigned I-suo made, one specific allegation wonld be sufficient. Tbe objection is not that there is no fact alleged and denied npou which an Issue can be formed. That is not true here. Hence, in this case, the only possible objection which could be made would be a question of evidence. That ts the view which I have taken in this cose The legal position which la taken here in this motion Is evident from the motion filed. It la ibis, that no proof can be received upon a bill of this character, excepting so far as time, place and person arc named. That is the position taken by the rerson who filed this notion, because it Is In this form—“and state particularly t&e time and place when and where the adultery was commit ted, together with the name of the person with whom they are charged to have been cimmittod, io enable the defendant to meet and defend against such charges, and that the complainant on the trial be confined to proof**tithe cases thus spe cified.” Tne legal position thus taken is, nna -r this motion, that yon assume that the allegations must be precise and all that It amounts to la an objection to evidence. That la all It amounts to. Tho motion itself don't a«anc that there is not a sufficient allegation in the bill—that there are not specifications of time, place and pmotn, as thcie is lu some places, bnt the objection is that there are other allegations not specifying time, place and person. The object of this motion la to compel the parties to give time, place and person folly. To do so It la only' necessary to state It thus, that the Court upon the trial of the case rule out all evidence excepting that lu relation to those issues which specify time, place and person. That is the question which la submitted to the Court, and the only question. That is the question clear ly. When that question proper!? arise* the Court will decide it. it can't decide It in advance, be cause in this bill the complainant has alleged In so many words, when she can't specify the person, that she can't do It for the reason that ahe don't know tho name of the person. That allegation la made, when the place Is not named. She alleges ahe don’t enow the exact place where It was committed. So that the bill Itself states that (hose places, where they have not named tbcolace and person, they have norths means so to do, so that this merely raises tho question whether noon the trial you can prove this general allegation. The object ol this motion, then, u this, that the Court Is to decide, in advance, upon this brief that the complainant cannot prove In evidence, when Ibis case comes on for hearing, the truth of the allegation, where Is time, place and person not stated. It is sufficient to say that under the chancery practice this is not a proper mode for the Court to decide in advance of the question coming np in evidence. To grant this motion would be to decide in advance. That la all It amounts to; that It Is only the allegations wticre there is time, place and persons named that are admissible npoc these issues. 1 don't nnder stand that to be the law. I have looked over the brief that has been filed and while I find it lo contain good law, I do not find it warrants such action. (The Cc tut here recited the authorities of law cited.) With ua the practice would be to ■ make the objection on the trial to the'evidence or by a motion to strike out the allega tions where they were 100 Indefinite,' or by demurrer, or to quash where the charges axe not anfficiently explicit. 1 understand the rule to be that when there is a certain case expressed with time, place and person, then It la competent (or the pleader to go on and allege In a general way, that be may prove adultery, if he us prove It to the satisfaction of the Jury. But there mutt be a reasonable allegation as to time and as to place, bnt as to person he moat satis fy the jury. If the charge ia against a man it must be abown that the man had carnal correction wilb a woman, but the name is not necessary if they succeed In proving the fact. This la very easily Illustrated m (be case where a person can swear to seeing the deffe&dant in actual carnal connection with a woman. It wonld be very strange if such a case as that, where he knew the w»n and old not know the woman, if yon could not prove the adulterr. Von could swear that she was a woman and swear that the man be did know. There is an Illustration that shows that the rule must be eo from the very nature of the transaction Itsell In the first place, the objection here la prema ture. It wonld not have been good if the sub stance of it had been taken hy uemarrer or mo tion to gnash. Neither wooia the Conn, upon motion, hare ordered the party to be more speci fic, she baring alleged she could not be more specific. The question is one which can be argued when the case comes cp. This motion ww therefore be overruled. The divorce case of bcoo th. raaxriFKjL mtrmi came cp on the report of the Master. The peti tion In this case was filed Jose SI last, and it al leged against the wife ernetty, repeated and ex treme, and* the calling by her of the complainant of bad names. The parties were married and lived in Berlin. Prussia, for some time; but be left her, as he alleges, by reason of the cruelty of which he complains. The facts were tonod by the Ms ter (Mather), and a recent taendationwaatnadelhata divorce be decreed. The Court (Jameson, Judge), did not see it in this light, ue declined. In view of the fact that the husband did,not show bis foreign wife to be a stronger animal than be, and that he did not cor rect her. bnt deserted her ; that a divorce coald sot now be granted. The Chancery aide of the Superior Court ts now engaged in bearing amotion to decree alimony in the case of Helen vs. Andrew Ferguson, where a divorce was granted some time since. A Boutran Career.—About the 4th of th* present month. In the evening, a bedroom ad joining ■ billiard room at No. IJH North Wells street was entered by some burglar and two tranks and a valuable gsn were removed. The tranks contained clothing, books, papers, re ceipts. photographs, Ac., and f 986 in greenbacks. An account of the burglary was given in the Tazncn directly after its occurrence. Th* property belonged to Joseph LelUng. the pro- Pri'rtor of the billiard saloon.- MrTLeltmg re- K tried his lost at the Central Htalion end end Dixon were de tailed to Investigate the affair. Suspicion rested upon no one in particular. Tbo officers were ptucnUy examining the case for some days before they could gain a clue that promised io lead to any successful results, bnspidon finally rested npon one William Dona. Officer Dixon obtained possession of a piece of mosnnlto net ting which Bonn bad. and upon exhibiting It to Lining be at once indcnllfled U as bis own prop erty. He bad used It daring the summer over his bed. He remembered It by some rents that were In ifwblcb the washerwoman had neglected to re pair. The next articles found were the two trunks at a private boose on booth Clark street. Most of the clothing and all the money bad been abstracted. A pair of pants belonging to Leltlng were futmd at a neighboring pawnshop Shirts and drawers were ferreted out which bore the owner's same, and alter Bonn's arrest it was lonnd that be was cooly wearing one of belting's thins, and had another In bis valise. He was at fln-t Inclined to make a desperate leslstance to at test, bnt a smart little rap on the nose from the stock olEllis' revolver quite altered bis Inten tions, and he was taken to the Central Station. v Upon being examined there, ignorant of the fact that tie most conclusive proof of hit guilt bed owo found, he assumed quite i bravado air. Upon bis person be carried one of the pictures be longing (oiLcitlag. an ambrotype of his ptrenla. The fact bo Incensed l<elilac, (who was,present,) that It was necessary to restrain bln from doing violence to the prisoner. After being locked up in bis cell. titmn attempted to destroy a pair of drawers he was wearing, by tearing them to pieces, ana trying tb induce apilsoncr In the hill to burn them. These also were found to belong to Lehlrg. Dunn was arraigned at iho Police Court yesterday aftamoon charged nitbborglary. The value o| the trunk and con tents va* considered to be (1,500.

A Series of Fight*—Axing an Enemy. Patrick and John O’Brien, brothers, were ar raigned before Justice MUUken yesterday after noon. charged with au assault with latent to commit bodily Injury upon Ed vard O’Ualloran. The three men and their families ill occupy-lhe same dwelling on Rucker, near Twenty-second street. O’Halloran, the prosecuting witness, ap peared to confront the O’Briens, bis face partially concealed by many bandages, that portion of ft which waa in v ( ew suggesting very faint tm presMone that the Injuries received bad at all marred the beauty of his countenance. O'Hal loran made a very lengthy statement of fats tribulations, dating the beginning of his miseries on Tuesday evening be tween the hours of six and aeven o'clock. Be waa returning from bis work, passing through the alley near hie home, when he met John O’Brien. ‘Herald John was smoking bis pipe, full of glee, and the sparkles were flying from iu Be asked John why he let It do so. John Bald it was bis pleasure to do so. This reply provoked Edward, and be made such an answer that John politely cballenced him to a little fight It was getting dark, and after John bad maltreated him a few moments, (in which it would appear that O'Hal loran generously let him have hu own way.) the contending parties retired from the “field.” About seven o’clock tn the morning Edward was visited at his apartments by John, who requested him to come out and get an additional pulverizing. Edward went out of doors, haring in hand a hatchet. He said John stood furiously against him, and Jerked the asc from bis band and struck him eevera! times. “With the axe T’lnquired the court. “Yet, I can show yonr Ronor.” “No, 1 don’t want you to,” replied the court. “O. I'm not going to strip, your Honor,” saya Edward—“lt was enough to kit] a hog.” Ihe eangulnary O’Brien then no for a large axe, hut some of the neighbors prevented him from any farther chopping op of OTlalloran, the latter retiring to bis bouse, as he asserted, badly wounded. After that, Jobu and bis brother mad* another sortie npon O’QalJoran's premises, from *tbe porch of which they dared him to come oat to fight. Ed ward's Injuries bad In no manner impaired his spirits, bnt physically he was not so buoyant, and therefore he waa compelled to decline. After sapper the O'Briens swain cordially accosted bio, when be happened to be out of doors, one of them saying, “Now I am ready for you, nibs,” at tho same time seizing a narrow board about two feet long. Edward said be would “take the law of him; ”be would have them “ shoved op,” Be dared them to strike— they were “axing” him down in the yard to murder him. Hostilities at tbls point were suspended for tho night. On Thursday morning the persecuted O’Halloraa arose from his couch very stiff and lame, and a Utile • after seven, as soon as ho had sot out ot doors, the O’Briens, on the alert for him, made a very formidable attack. Be said they knocked him down and kicked him “for dead,” ore of them beating his head in a very savage manner with an empty porterlboftle. Ed ward said : “1 axed him for mercy—no mercy ; my wife axed him lormcrcy—nomcrcy; and now, vonr Honor, 1 wantjostice.” At this point O’Hal loran broke down with emotion. The prisoners desired a continuance of the case to prepare a de fence.' -A further examination will be held on the S3lh lost, the O'Briens bring required to rive ball of (500 each. If O'Halioran's statements were strictly veracious, it is a serious and per plexing question bow be survived the first ’’thrashing.” LAW INTELLIGENCE, Tbe business of the several Coarts, excepting as it has reference to actions for the dissolu tion of tbe maniage bond, possessed yester day but little interest to the general public. In the Circuit Court a leave of absence was given to Delos 11. Carrol, who was detained hoc by a writ of ne exeat, sued out by Uarcns Simpson, lately bis partner. It will be remem bered that the origin of Ibis, as of several other cases, was a cowhiding scrape upon South Water street. The jorj. In the cose of Milo M. Belding A Co. against w, 11.
