Her husband for innately was close at hand, and succeeded In res cuing ber from her unpleasant and dangerous posit Inn.

To-day it famishes the topic for town talk, and officers are looking out for the offenders. •• it Is a sad case ol youthful depravity, as the lads have had almost every advantage, and were not Induced to do Ita« a means of raising money fjr their maintenance.” Toe Edwauds Asobtion dunce.—The case w>-. pnooic CT/f/a Dr. E.

Death or Gehthaz. Gahele,— Tbe lelegrams Saturday evening Inform us of the death, bj cholera, on the Isthmus, of MajorWilliaa Gamble, U.S. A. At tbe late boor it which thin la written we arc enable to collect any facta in the history of tbe dccoaFCd. He will be remembered by tbe citizens nf Chicago and vicinity os a resident of Kvaueton. At the breaking out ot the war he van employed m the office of the Sewer* cue ConinuFsioners; be entered the service, end went off from Chicago as lieutenant Colonel of tbe Eighth Illinois Tavalry, of which lion. J. F. Fa<n«wortfa was Colonel. He shared In all the arduous labors of that distinguished corps of men, and was subsequently promoted to the Colonelcy of the regiment. For hi" valorous deeds be was made Brigadier General, and held tbnt rank at tbe close of the war. Almost Imme diately atlcr bl" regiment was ordered out of service be was appointed Major in the Eighth or Ninth Regulars. and served with them on the plains. About two months ago he returned to Chicago on a brief leave of absence, preparatory tn going to California, where his regiment is or dered lor dmy- Major Gamble was a native of Scotland, and about filtv veara old at the time of his decease. He was a'»fiorongh soldier and a good citizen. The breath of slander never sullied any one point of bis good name. The New Watzb Wobkb.— Before tho crib was Funk in the lake, before even tho first spade fall of earth thrown np from the western end of the proposed tunnel, It was a foregone conclusion that the old Water Works would, in due time, be tnrewn aside for the new; and when the comple tion of the tnnnel was announced, a lew weeks aro, some of onr residents flattered themselves thMdpa that nothing more remained to be accomplished: that water and little fishes would stop running thtough the old works; and that, po-Mbly. pipes fall of pare water would Immedi ately make their appearance in every kitchen and bed room in the city. These Ideas, in the main, wil! he realized in a few months, and probably alter August next, those who have bad small fish brought to their kou«cs several times a day, gratis, will be obliged to patronize fish markets, and pay for all (he fish they carry away—-just as people who have not patronized the old w<<rka for a couple of year a tare b*cn Ir the habit of doing. *] he old pumping house will oc torn awar dar ing the coming summer, and a larger building erected on it- t lie. directly opposite tic new low er, which will be 150 feet high.

Undcrthc old engines lb a laige well, 25 leet in diameter, 20 feet fn/m each of tbe small wells—the three being di rectly on a line. The large well Is dug; hat can be connected with tbe smaller ones with very Utile trouble.

Handsome trees and fountains will be planted and located in this pntk. which,it la earnestly to be hopoi, will be “a thing of beauty" and “a loy forever." Creech Dedication.— The newly completed honre of worship ut Oakland,known as the Ninth Prcsbi U'rlan Church, situated on Ellis avenue, was yesterday formally dedicated to the service of Almighty God. Iho exercises of the occasion consisted of prayer, tbe reading of Scripture and the delivery of a sermon. tlio nmver prefatory was offered by Rev. «s < 1 Smith, of Hyde Park. Tbe selection o! Scripture read was the sixth planter of the Second Book of Chronicles, anprSiaiely clioecn as containing the beautiful aSSreis of Solomon to the people of Israel upon the comnlcUon of the temple at also li. r>rarer upon the occasion of Its dedication. h bSon wa» delivered hr Rev.

Family Devotions Before and After Marriage. Bosilia Dudley on the Witness Stand _T*Hcr Version of tho Intimacy— She Denies any Improper Con nection with tho Defend ant or any Other Mon. The Blewart divorce case waa continued on Saturday before,Judge Jameson, ol tbo Bupeilor «‘ourt. Hutu was present In the court room the many persona who have during tho past three days entered their appearance to listen to the de velopments expected to bo delivered In the pub llebtailiig. The great event of the dayw&atbo examination of Dwelt* or Itoalha Dudley, and ahv denied all the allegation* of each ana every witness who had testified to uncbistiiy on her part. The Hist witness called waa s. o. launkd, saq.. who testified, In substance, as follows: I have been connected with this suit. My firm filed the first answer. Previous lo that Mr. Blew art had consulted me In regard to bis wife. 110 did so, first, on tbo Uth or ISth of November, 1865. * Q. What was tbccanseoryoorwllbdrawlngft-om the cause? Objected to as immaterial. Objection over ruled. A. We withdrew on account of the conviction that It wonld be deemed Important for me to be a witness. Q. W hat wore the ac’s and declarations Indica ting the feelings of Mr. Stewart toward his wife when Dc consaltcd yon? «. ''Objected lo and temporarily withdrawn. Q. Did • you call on Mrs. Stewart? A. I called on Mrs. Stewart at’her husband's request, i wrote to Mr. Washington Smith, as I deemed it improper to go to any gentleman's house to see a lady under those circumstances without receiving bis permission. 1 therefore addressed « letter to Mr. Washington Smith set ting out the request that bad been made by Mr. Stewart, and giving n reason, and asking an in terview. It waa in pursuance of that letter and the reply to it, that the interview was bad. I have a copy ol the letter with me. and It can be produced. Q. I will ask you, Mr. lamed, if tbe character of the letter was not to eficcl on amicable con ciliation or separation ? A. Thai waa declared In It to be the sole purpose of my visit. [The letter, dated November 14,15C5, was read In evidence, asking an Interview.] 1 received an answer to that'letter from Mr. i-mitb. which I hare bunted in vain to find. The parport of It was that the interview would ho ac ccd* d to, and naming a time aud place lor it, to wit, at bis resldercc, on the following evening, or tbenexl bntone. [Copy shown.] My impression la this Is a correct copy of tbc answer. [Letter of November 14, from Washington Smith to Mr. E.C. Lamed ’aestnting to an Inter view. and conditioning that Stewart would not ac company the attorney to bis hotuc.l 1 called at the time subsequently designated by uo’e or arrangement, on the ICth of November, Q. Plcaae state what occn-red at that Interview? Obit ctcd to on the ground that whatever is Raid between parties with a view to elTect a compro mise is not lobe admitted in evidence, and on the further ground that U is immaterial to the case. (Pending the argument tbe Court signified that while be was willing to bear tbe argument through ifit were asked or sought for, he was convinced thatthe evidence might he received, because the state of mind of the defendant was cvldencetend ing to disprove adultery ; bnt, if this were Intro duced it mast include tbe testimony of tbo condi *kn of mind of complainant, which would be ad mitted as tending to prove that adultery bad been committed, and had'eome to her knowledge.! Ttio witness continued: I desire to say that if 1 had supposed tbelr conversation to he confiden tial I tliouid certainly not be here. 1 can’t pre tend to give the result of a conversation of three hours' length. When 1 first entered the parlor at ilr.Smitb'B house I met a lady. I had not the pleas ure of Mrs. Stewart's acquaintance, bnt I pre sumed It was she. 1 bowed and said, “Mrs. Stew art?' Ihe lady replied, “Miss Smith, if yon please." I immediately answered. “1 don't consider it proper, Madam, tor me to call yon by any other name than that the law allows yon to b( ar, therefore I cannot say 'like Smith,' but most say 'Mrs. Stewart.*” Very shortly alter her lather esme in, and she re mained during the entire interview, but hcimy have -been absent a lew moments. 1 staled that i bad called to see if I could prevent having this .unfortunate domestic estrangement go any farther, and Ibat I wanted. It possible, to gel her to letum to her husband. 1 stated to her that Mr. Stewart desired me to say to her that he still tained the strongest affection for her; that noth ing bad alienated his feelings from her, and that, notwithstanding what bad occurred, ho still loved her, and he desired that slio should return borne, and be was ready to support her. and to provide a homo for her, and that I desired to find out what the grounds were which justified this reparation. Sbc then went into a detailed statement of the grounds of complaint. The first ground of complaint was that bo had. what she called, stolen sermons, bho detailed the evidence that bad satisfied her mind of this; Uiat bo bad taken a sermon from a certain clergy man, I think, in Pittsburgh, and anoiher In La- Porte. If 1 remember rightly, and that bo had preached them as bis own. The second ground was that he bad stolen letters from a Post Office an the West Side, where, 1 think, a Mr. Stewart was Postmaster, and where he had the privilege of going, and there were tetters belonging to soldiers, 1 think. I replied to that that I bad understood from Stewart that be had heard some such intimations, and tha’ it would bo very generous for her to be lieve such things of her husband; and It woald be a great gratification for ber to know that be was innocent of it; and that be desired me to say that anybody who made tbe charge against him he would bo clad to meet before a criminal tribunal; and that be courted tbe investigation; and that it was her duty to cause the matter to be Investigated. The third ground was in con jicclion with some letter be bad been commis sioned to take from tbe store of Mr. Washington Smi'b to the Post Office. The allegation wasthat he had detained or opened and read It, and that she found it in tbe pocket of bis overcoat 1 made a like statement as to what her duty was in this regard. I then urged upon her that these thirgs would not justify her before the courts, or the Christian world, for refttstng to live with her husband, and that 1 thought It her duty to return to bim, as by remaining away from him she was injuring him while be was a yonng man; she should ro tnrn to bim orafTord him the opportunity to meet the charges. 1 also told her that bo desired her w> prefer charges against bim in an ecclesiastical conrt, that be might meet them. 1 appealed to ber to return to him. With that she said that she regarded Mr. Stewart as a hypocrite, and that she could not live with him, as she expressed It, I without an injury to her spiritual character; that contact with this man was so damaging that she conld not possibly live with him without becomingdefilcd. I said to her, as a reply to that, that I conld not see bow her moral or spiritual character conld be benefited by trampling on one of the first laws and obligations ol Christian life, tboidnty of a wife to her hus band. I cited to her the instance of another lady who had clung to her husband in her troubles, and was well esteemed by tbe citizens. She replied that it was no nso to talk to her: that she never woald live with bim: that her mind was made nn, and she would never bave any intercourse with him. I can’t remem ber til told her the explanation Stewart made about the letter found in bis pocket, and I have forgotten what It was. In regard to the sermons 1 spoke jocosely of It, that if that was a Justifica tion for wives to leave their clerical husbands. there would bo a scattering in thecommnmty, or something of that kind. sir. Smith told me to tell Mr. Stewart never to speak to or recognize him or it might be dangerous—he woald not be accoantablcfortbe consequences. Subsequently a letter was written by onr firm asking for an in terview forStcwart with his wife. This was di rected to Mr. Smith, and answered by Mrs. Stew art. In bor letter she declined to receive the visit, called her husband a thicl, a liar, and a hyp ocrite, and denounced any attorney who was cog nizant of the facts she had told me, as little better. Alter this a letter was sent tendering her a home at the Richmond House. <*. What were the acta and declarations of Mr. Stewart In relation to his stale of feeling toward Ms wife! Objected 10, and objection overruled. A Be seemed to have a strong affection for his wife, so far as bis declarations went 1 conld not (ell anything aboct it, except by bis letters and wbat be said. lie bad an idea she still lovcdhlm, and Ibis I told him was not so. if 1 conld judge of human nature. His condition was as one who was anxious, otherwise 1 noticed nothing that was peculiar, excepting that be so frequently came lo tbe office that hla visits became annoying. I did not tell him this, hot it was a fact. Tbe comt then adlonrocd until 2 p. m. AFTERNOON SESSION. Upon the coming In of conrt the defence con tinued the examination of * B. C, LAHJTED, ESQ., who fnriher said: I emitted to add, m the acts of Mr. Stewart, that on tbe Sfith of March. 1866. he brought to me a long letter addressed to Mrs. Stewart, which I read through, and finding nothing that I deemed objectionable In It, enclosed it in a letter lo Mr. Washington Smith, of which 1 have a copy upon my letter-book. I gave tbe letter to my errand boy. bnt cannot say it was delivered. I don't think the young man Is in the city. Be is a neph ew of Mr. John McNally. Q. Do yon remember the time when Stewart commnnicatcd to you tbe fact, as his counsel, of a woman being thrown In his society at a board ing house under certain circumstances, and what cl'cnmstanrcs? Objected to. * Coumcl for the defence proffers to show that this woman was af- male detective, and that she * vas employed In the attempt to get up a charge of adultery. The evidence was not admitted, nn* 1 •< 58 the conspiracy alleged first be shown, or un less evidence tending to show it be exhibited. ] Crosx<rcmlnafJon—This interview lasted abonl three boors, until abonteleven or twelve tn < the evening. Thu conversation was qnltc fall and detailed. I think she said the sermons were r-tolen while they were on tUmr, hat 1 do not re* number that It was the wedding tonr. I think. 1 pirhap*. the name of the clergyman In Pittsburgh she said sermons lad been stolen from was Entirely; It vra* a queer name, and the name of the other clergyman was Logan, of Valparaiso, Ind. 1 think she raid he and she called at Mr. ixtgtn a, and he was absent, and he made pretext to want to sec tbo library, and thus was ~ * n , * Q d took the sermon. 1 think she be ureter, ded to want to write a letter. 1 think she said she found the original sermons *n his pocket, and copied them unknown to him. 1 think the said he took two or scr* r '°« °p. e place, and one from the other. J.i 1 ?. .v/Vu 'hey got homo she taxed him with the theft, and he owned It, but 1 do not remember that sbe said he placed Ms hand upon a Bible and swore that he bad not done as she said be had. She said that then she produced her copy, and he asked her pardon, or admit* Jed the act. 1 don t think I remember ibat he asked her pardon, bat 1 cannot say It did not occur. She said abe found several letters belong* log tol soldiers In bia overcoat pocket. 1 may be mistaken, bull don’t think sbeeald he got op one night alter she litd been asleep, and she round him reading a letter, haring money on his lao, hut I should be sorry to swear that she did not say so. She said she wrote to Mr. Logan about (bo taking of a sermon from him, and she told mo that she had Dr. letter then to show that Le had taken a sermon without the knowledge or that gentleman. She said she thought tbc soldiers* letters had money in them, because the envelopes scorned to have tn-cn stuff* cd out. I rather ent off the conversation on this matter by suggesting a criminal Investigation, bntdld not think of the fact that she cento not, unsupported, by htr testimony, work a convic* Uou In effect she said that It was bard to ask a woman to coi tinne Urine with a man who was liable at any moment to bo arrested for robbing ibc malli. Stcwart had told mo that the charge waa floating aronnd that he had stolen letters, and told her that he courted an in vestigation concern* ItiglL She said aho married him in a fit of reli gions enthusiasm, when aho was In the church and be was a student, ond ho used to come to the house and conduct family prayer, and that she supposed that abe was rfnng c ,” c . ir f 2®. good cause when married but that after sho married him, ho discon tinued this thing. He did not take any Interest In It, and instead of conducting family nrajers be did not pray when be went to bed, and found fault with her for being ao long saying her timers. Shecotnplalned that when she went out with him be wouldpolnt outfancy women 10 her, and make remarks about tuem. I tola her that Htewart wax ready to aupport her. and aho sneered at the idea of Us haring anything, and told mo that It 1 U*ycr 1 bad belter s~e that I col toy iay beforehand, an bcwonld not keep Us void—(lint I could not rely upon him.

"bo neat witness sworn was uomlia hudlxt, who lotllflrd in substance os follows: lam ac ntininb a with Stewart alnco a year ago last April. When I lived on tho corner of Van Barca and Clark sheets bo called tbero to pet eomo sewing doi.o by my mother. 1 next saw blm that aamo week at my bouse when ho bronchi Ibo work.

Mr mother mod to come there every dar and return (o her home In tbo evening. Blic brought her work with ber. and during thU time Hicwari continued to employ her. U. Hlale what was the demeanor and conduct of Mr. Hlcwart when you aaw him? A. I never aaw anything out of the way In Mr. Stewart—never; be was a perfbet gentlemao. 1 moved from SOU Clark street t lio Itith of Anuusi, and went to (bo corner of Qulncyand Slate. My mother asalricd me to move, and afterward lived in Ibo same bouse, moving there In September of IHfifi, she lived right across ibo ball, and ro* malnrd Ibero until slia broke np home keeping in November, and camp to live with me until the 4th of December, when she wont to Indiana. After aho broke up housekeeping. Mr. and Aim. Newport occupied her rooms. I cannot any what day they look (ho rooms, nor bow long they re* malned Ibrre. bntlhey ten In the winter. While my mother lived with me she slept In tbo aamo bed with me, and a young lady slopped with me lor a week and occupied a second room of the linen we bad. The name «l the young lady nns Mlsa Kelly. She came to atop a week nnltl hbe went out of town. 1 was not much acquaint ml with her, and she left before my mother went away. lawyer Kinney called upon her while aho was at Ibo bouse, twice or Ibreo limes. Once be waa accompanied by a Mr. Lull, a constable, who came to suopmna my mother. The case In which she waa anbpmnaed waa one for the recovery of a trunk belonging to Alisa Kelly. Kinney eat In the front room and did not pass through my room, and 1 don’t remember that be retired to Alisa Kelly’s bedroom. Ee never passed through my room when 1 was In bed. 1 think there was a gentle* man (here when bo called, an acquaintance of Allas Kelly's, whose name I don’t know. This per son was Ibcie when he and Mr, Lull came. When be came my mother slept with me. Ido not think anybody waa In bod when he left, but u there was it waa royaclf and my mother. Mr. Stewart never stayed in my room all nlcbi, and never waa there when Mr. Kinney came. Mr. Stewart waa never there early In the morning, and 1 never got np as early as live o’clock nor as early as seven o’clock. Ee waa never bed. Ee was never fonod Inhis stock ing feet m my room early In the morning, nor un dressed In any way. Bo never was undressed In my house. Mrs. Newport never came and found him there early In the morning. Ido not think she ever saw Air. Stewart In my home In her life, end ebc never came Into my boose for any matches. Sbo nor anybody cue ever saw mo silting in Air. Stewart's lap, and 1 never rat there, I never wrote notes to blm or exchanged notes with blm. Louisa Miller never came into my room when I was In bed with Stewart, and I never fastened mv door with a cord to prevent her coming in: 1 bad no occasion (o fasten it. Lonlsa Miller came to my house December 4th. 1 scut her away the last of April. She rented a room oi me, ns she said she was coins canvassing the city: It was some time before 1 consented to let her have the room, but mother was gout* away and I did, she paying me five dollars a week. I sent her away because I thought I would not have any women round me, and 1 don't think she was a proper character. K saw Stewart at my n'nce on Quincy sticcl,he called once or twice. Minnie Wood came to my bon?o at SOU Clark street, about two weeks before I moved, and she went to Quincy strcetwUb me, and remained nntil September, 1865, paying me (3 a week. Stewart never was Is bed In any of the rooms In the house, and-I never eat with him on the bed, and never remained with him in a bedroom an hour or two. He never remained in the bedroom of Mary Wood or Louisa MUlor. 1 remember when Mary Wood was eick, but I do not remember that be wcul into her bedroom. Stewart only made friendly calls, and he brought senior <o my mother on Quincy street There was never any love-making between us, and be never kissed or embraced me. Uc nsed to epend most of his time talking of his wife and hts trouble with her. 1 remember bis calling one evening with a physician; they both left together. lie never remained any lengitiof time on any visit, and 1 never heard him sine a song in my life. 1 was sick with neuralgia In the summer of IHJS. The house was palled while I was sick. My husband was then In Chicago, but on that evening be was at brother's and be knew nothing about tbe arrest. My brother Is Isaac Tower; be lives on the West Side. Minnie Wocd came hack In April and said she was married to George Hurllmrl, and 1 let her and bim board there under that understanding. That was tbe first time 1 ever saw Uurlburt. Stewart never promised to giro me a mnlT, and 1 never told Hnnhnrt so. I bad a difficulty with Mrs. Newport. She came in and said some man came nn her stairs, and came to my bedroom 'while Miss Miller was tbero. 1 lold her I had no knowledge of it, and if ebe came out In that way I never woald have anything more to say to her, and 1 did not. That was when Miss Miller was there. A detective came, and he said, “Mrs. Dudley, yon had bcltcrlnnkc some money ont of this opera tion.” I said “howl” He said, “yon will not make anything ont of Stewart; he has nut got anything.” 1 said, “ I guess I will,” and thought I would go on and just see what he bad to say. I said. * r l don't know bnt yon could, by paying a good deal.” Said he, “will you go and admit it lor f 1,0001” 1 said “ I don't know abonl that.” Said he, “ Won’t you como down to Turtle's office to-morrow?” Said I, “No.” “Well,” said he, “ 1 will bting Turtle up here.” Said 1, “ No, yon won't.” said, “I will drop a note to Washington Smith, and be will fix It,” and I told bim he needn't, lie came back a fortnight ago, and slid, “Why don't yon make some money out of this operation?” Itisald 1 didn't care to do it. This man's name Is Thomas Harris. The cross-examination of this witness produced a recapitulation of her denials of any improper intimacy with tho de fendant. buo elated that she bad boon ar rested on a charge of abortion, with her mother, bnt bad been honorably discharged. That sho came from tbo East, and then was named Itawsoa. That she has a child now at school m Wisconsin. That she was not orreeted for stealing, as conn ed asked her concerning. Her husband Is a spec ulator, Unveiling through the country, who visits her once a year and sends nor money, when be bos it to send.

Tbo motion prevailed, and the Council stood adjourned. a. h. HODMAN, City Clerk. FreedmeiDs Orplian Anylanx, Madame De Mome, Superintendent of the Frcedmen’a Orphan Asylum, la lu Chicago, and wDI probably remain three or four days, lor the purpose of raising a portion of tbc sum of $3,000, which Is required to be raised within sixty days, as the only means of securing $21,000 which have been donated to (ho Asylnm, and which arc on deposit in the Bank of America, at Now Orleans. Some clchtccn months ago a French gentleman named Do Bossier arrived in New Orleans and upon visiting the Asylum Informed Us Superintendent that be would dcoostc SIO,COO -to the Asylum’s credit In * the Bank of America, with tbo und-rstandlng that the money was to revert to him if $20,000 addi tional were not raised for the same pnrposo by tbc first of Jannary. 1567. Subsequently General Uoward directed that f 10.C0J be donated to the Asyli.m from the Fretdmcn’s Bureau fund. Some time last fall Monsleor dc Bossier, who had re turned to Fiance, was notified of General How ard’s donation, and Imonnea that a longer time than that specified by him would bo necessary for raising the remaining SIO,COO, and be very generously gave an extension of three months. One thousand collars has been soLecribcd and paid In —making the total amount now on deposit, SBI,OOO. If the sum of $9,0C0 bo not deposited in lie Bank of America on orbclote the Ist of April, General Howard’s donation, as well as the mut’lfiecnt one of the gicat-hcartcd Frenchman, will be lost to the Asylum. We arc informed, end tbc Asylum Is a necessary institution in tbo urcscent Cltv. It is not only educational, but Industrial, atd Is, to a certain extent, self-supporting. After the close of the war, when a number of colored regiments were mustered out, the Superintendent icsiond about fifty orphans lo tnelr bthete, who bad fought at Port Hudson and MHUkcn’s Bend, Several attempts bad been mado to have these and other orphans In tho Asylnm disposed otto Southern planters, lu accordance with the regulations of tho infamous apprentice system which was Initiated by a certain well known agent of the Frecdmcn’s Bureau; but the scheme, in consequence of tbc iuterfercuco of tbo military commander of the department, fell still-born. The Superintendent, after leaving Chicago, will visit the principal cities of the East. She Las a alight tinge of colored blood In her veins, but her ‘conversation denotes a high degree of intelligence, end before leaving tho North, to assume her onerous task, as a teacher of tbc lowly and friendless, her abilities os a dramailc reader were, in (be opinions of Wendell Phillips and Theodore Tilton, of an ex ceedingly high order.. Rev. Mr. Tilton, now In Chicago, vouches tor her in tho strongest terms. UNDEBGUOCND ARIVSEKIENTS. Wo have frequently referred to the first-class facilities offered to the people of Chicago for spending money; we have, by proper illaatration, shown that a spccnlator who bnys red winter for $2.50,*0nd tells the same article tbe next day for $2,45, docs not trade to the best advantage; wo have spoken aaoftcnas occasion rcqnlrcd.of the enticing game of confidence, which is played every day or two at railway depots; webavo published a con siderable number ot articles in reference to the market prices of wedding rings, boose rent, pralne chickens, mutton chops, baby Jumpers and gas bills: we have endeavored to keep our readers posted in regard to the actual volno of the Presidential stock owned by Andrew John son, and bave, with some satisfaction, reported tU regular decline; we have several times advised men who possessed more money than discretion, to abandon the interest ing study of zoology, especially at me nageries where the princloal attractions consist of an accomplished faro dealer and a hungry tiger; bnt wo are witling to make a plea of guilty to the charge of having given tbe go-by to numerous interesting games of chance and skill which arc played every week day evening, and occasionally on the evening of the seventh day, in many or the basement “ dives *’ that are supported by men whose Inclinations prompt them to pass away a few bonra of each day in the apparently agreeablc,bnt really unprofitable, busi ness of killing lime. Wc allude to the games known by sharpers and amateurs as “ Freeze- Ont,” “Whiskey Poker.” “ Pitch," “ Cribbage," Bcvcn-Up,” and “Two-Pluck-Occ.” These games, providing wo can place any reliance in a state ment which one of onr reporters says was made to him a few days ago. ore more Profitable to the owners of the “ dives ** aforesaid, than to those who receive the variegated pieces of pasteboard which the dealer distributes around the table. In every game that we can thmk of, with two excep tions, there is a certain amount of sim ilarity regarding tbo penalty which the loser Is expected to pay. These exceptions refer to Whiskey Poker and donkey races—the only dlf fetcncc being that, while Ihe winner or the Whiskey Poker contest loses, and la obliged to settle at tbe bar for liquids which, if we aw* cor rectly Informed, are tectonically termed “ drinks,” the last donkey that passes the home stretch wins tbo pool. “Two-rinck-One” sometimes goes by the title of " Cnt-lhroat.” but the Utter is, In the minds of the sensitive beings who patronize basements, rather too expressive, and tno former, on acconnt of Its euphony, is tbe most popular of the two. The rest ot the games above named are not noted for any very peculiar characteristics—the most Important ones of wblcbjorc that the more one plays them the less money be retains to nls pocket book, and tbe greater amount of stamps tail into the landlord's till. The landlord, as a general rule, does not play, but if he can be in duced to participate, bo comes offscathcies*, and at the end of every game says, “Well, boys, you'd better call for what you want; Jack for Bill, as the case may be,) loses the game: half a dollar, if you please, because yon know 1 don’t trust." So tbe games go, and at the end of an hour or two the players arc out of pocket from half a dol lar to a dollar and a half, when they leave, tbe landlord says to them, “Call again, gentlemen; 1 shall be happy to see ynn at any time.*'—tbe trans lation of which Is: “When you've got money to spend yon arc welcome, when yon haven't I’ve got no use for you.” Tbe whiskey kept in some of these dives Is onitc sufficient to Instity some men in dieting themselves for dcltnnm tremens after a single evening's sitting, while others, with the exception of the burning ont of the coats of their stomachs, do not apparently enfi'er any greater injuries than those resulting from the lose of money and tbe change of the whites of their eves from their original clear to the hngtbcet scarlet. A large number of yonng men patronize some of these bascmenlscTery evening, and the average night's loss of each cannot tie much less than a dollar. This amount, without coanting that ex pended on occasional Snnday evenings, makes up a' yearly aggregate of S3IS a snm larger than some of onr wealthy merchants started business with less than ten years ago. The moral is evident, and we will not take the trouble to ear what It Is. State Taxation or National Banka, In onr Issue of Saturday we referred briefly lo a decision rendered by Bon. Thomas Drummond. In reference to taxation of the stock of National Banks for State and municipal purposes. The de cision was made verbally, and our report of the case did not convey as definite an idea as tbe fol lowing statement: Aaron !>. Collins vs. Tbe City of Chicago, United States Circuit Court. Jannary, 1867: The material facte In this case were that the city caused to be assessed, for the payment of taxes, under the law of Illinois, tbe stock of the First National Bank of this city, as so much capi tal in the aggregate, with tbe intention of having the tax levied on tbe sum total of the eapl'al stock ol the bank. Tbe plaintiff, a non-resident stockholder, applied to the court to have the as sessment set aside as illegal. The conrt decided that tbc assessment was a violation or ifce acts of Congress snlhorlalng the existence of the National Banka, and that the capital stock oftbe bank, as such, could not be assessed under State authority; that the only way ibat the stock conld be reached was to assess the shares of the different stockholders, 19 the same manner that assessments were made in other cases against pronerty owners by the clilxens and in* habitants of the State. The conn accordingly held that the assessment made by the city in this case acalnst the capital stock or the nank conld not be sustained. Missiokabt and Scndat School Union—'The Executive Committee of the Chicago Methodist Missionary and Sander School Union held a special meeting on Saturday afternoon in the T<ecime Room of the Clark Street Methodist Epis copal Church, Mr. William I*. Moea, Jr., vice Preiidcnt, Id the Chair. The Recording Secretary, Mr. Q. n. Norton, stated the object of the meeting to bo to consider ihcpioprhty of the appointment of a General Superintendent of Missionary and Sunday School nCairs. Mr. S. O. Cook, chairman of a sab-committee appointed to make inquiries, and report seme per ron soluble for tbe position, recommended Kcv S, G. Latbrop, Chaplain of the Stale Prison a Joliet, ior the office. The Secretary read n letter from Mr. Latbrop, expressing his willingness to accept tbe position. If appointed. On motion. Rev. S. G. latbrop was elected Gen eral MlsslonaryaudSnndar School Agent for tbe city of Chicago. The Recording Secretary was instructed to In form Mr. Latbrop of the action of the committee, lu mediately* by telmapb. A letter was read by the Secretary irom Mr. Phil ip Phillips, who offered to give a concert in Chica go on Fcbrnaty etb, in behalf ol the Missionary and Sunday School cause. On motion. Messrs. Arthur Edwards, A. E. Lane and George B. Dunham were appointed a commit tee to take the matter under consideration, and lake sneb action as they think proper. On motion, one hundred dollars was appro priated to the M. E. ladles' *»enlnc Society for the purchase ol necessary articles for clothing re quired by the poor in the city. On motion, Messrs. J. V. Famuli, G. Goodrich, A. B. Scranton, J. E. Wll on and 8. A. Kean were appointed an advisoryicoromittce to consult with tbe newly appointed agent In his field of future action. Adjourned. Wimuo ron the Wagon.—Althongh too days of “ teaming" loads of urodnee irom long dis tances lo market aro In this age of railroads and canals fkst passing away, still for a circuit of a few miles nbont each basinets centre, where tho dis tance Is not great enough to require faster modes of conveyance, the same old methods aro cm filoyed. Tho fatmer who lives on the broad and critic prairie about Chicago rises at early dawn, loads ots wagon with gram, potatoes, deceased swtno,butter, eggs, and Uko “truck.’ attaches hla fine horses, or hts slow borincs, and starts for town. Soon after bo crosses toe city limits, as he comes upstate street,Blue Island avenue. Lake street, Milwaukee avenue. Clark street, and other principal approaches from the rural districts, ho is met by one more individuals, who are “ waiting for the wagon," not only to “all take a tide," which however they generally noceremonlonslydo. but directly with an eye to a shrewd stroke of business by forestalling the operators In town and •ecurlDf toefenatrt Twd* *Uo7 a bargain M effected Id a moment or by long haggling on ttio v aero os It moves along. Some farmers anxious lo sell at onto lake Ihe first offer: otbora who keep themselves posted ou the market rates hold out until they arc offered tbalr own price; and many refuse the mica of (be tom piers until they reach the business centre, where, la tho multi* tudo of bidders they hope to reallxo more.

When the predicted lime of universal tovo and brotherhood shat) arrive, t'm millennium hog ami potk wilt ho bought and sold without cheat* lug—hut that day scorns distant from Chicago.! OVR NICCOND KNOW NXOIIItI. Tboaccondgrcalsnowof the season began to fal] About alx o'clock on Saturday night. It was almost precisely similar In character to the flrat which came a few dnyi before Christmas, although not accompanied by aueba aovore gale. Juat about “gloaming" the strode were pervaded by while drifting clouds of snow, which seemed rather to aiiao from tbu earth than to fall from the aky. It gradually Increased In inUmliy, whitening the roada, blowing Into heaps here and there, blinding the eyes or pedestrians, and seriously Impeding every kind of traffic. The ground was sufficiently bard to retain the snow powder aa It fell, and before eight o'clock Itbadeocctoally boshed everything into silence. The street can were tbo first to "feel the sad in fluence of tbe hour." Between five and six they were careering merrily and with ease along the tracks, in one hour thereafter they were dragging heavily and noiselessly along, la two honrs tney were getting stuck fast in some snow mountain, and In three hours they bad ceased running alto gether. Oneaflcronctliey went away westward and southward and northward, no more to- return that evening, ranch to the satisfaction, no doubt, of the horses and tbe conductors, who bad reason to bless the storm that It came so thick whenlt came atoll. Short os tbe notice waa of such a- fall of snow, and such a condition of the streets, wc could bear dating tbe evening tbe multitudinous tinkle of the sleigh belts. People seemed to be delighted at the opportunity to air their winter vehicles, notwithstanding the excreiso was prose cuted nnder disadvantages. Tbe thaw came so soon, however, alter the last enow storm, that it waa not surprising that they should wish to make the mo>t of the occasion. Up to midnight on Saturday no detentions were reported on any or the lines of railroad centering in this City. Thus far tbe winter baa been very dryandmllfl, tbo thermometer at no time being lower titan two or three decrees below zero, forming a remark* able contrast to former years, when it has fre* qucntly fallen under twenty and loner. Wo have hitherto bad very little snow'fall, and some of the wealberwue have gone ao far as to predict that we would not have a foot of snow during tbe whole winter, arming by tbe well known law of compensation which opera'cs through all natore that an excess at one time most be atoned by a deficiency in the future. We had much heavier rain falls last summer than usual, the amount of rain octwecn {the Ist of June and the middleof December being thirty and a half Inches, or a little In excess of the annual average In this city established on a mean of thirty years. We do not possess the means of ascertaining the amount of rain which fell for tbo first five months of the year, but that amount weald he so ranch in excess or the annual average and, probably was not less than ten Inches. That the compensaion above hinted at will always be made somehow, there con be no doubt, hut “ of that day and hour no mao know* cth.” It would certainly be muca better that wo should experience It during this winter instead of nest rammer. If we are to have dtrlngtho summer months of 1867 a rainfall of ten Inches lea* than the annual average, the consequences as regards (bo stale of the crops at harvest time might be appalling to think of. Otebcoats at WHOLESALE. — One of the sharpest confidence operators that ever visited Chicago arrived hero a couple of weeks ago, and cstah* Usbed himself In business. Bis success, consid ering his age, which Is about eighteen years, has been splendid. Be did not make any big strikes, and we do not know that he attempted any,hut bu la believed to have swindled every man upon whom ho had designs, except one, ana that gentleman is Rev. Dr. Collycr; and that reverend gentleman would have been oat to the amount of seven dol lars and a half if ho bad not been temporarily short of funds. Tbe operator had a ptnc/tanl for overcoats, and Is supposed to have contracted for and received one more lhana baker’s dozen of these necessary garments. His victims, who comprise some of the shrewdest and wealthiest merchants, counted, by correct enumeration, twenty-one at coon on Thursday, and it is safe to presume that this number is somewhat below the actual figures— many or our business men who are noted lor sharpness in transactions which involve thou sands of dollars, being rather too modest to own to small swindles that may have been perpetrated upon them by smooth talkers wlib whom they arc altogether unacquainted. The swindle, from flr-t to last, was planned with judgment, and executed with discretion. Not content with heating whole sale and retail merchants, tbo confidence yonth has proved himself more than a match for oar well organized force of detectives. After bis last operation he lay perdu for a day and a half; hut, discovering that be was wanted at the Central Police Station, he retreated in good order, and Is no doubt chuckling over tbo groat success of bis well-planned raid. The detectives were ou (he watch for him until yesterday eve ning, when, upon learning tbatthetr quarry bad flown, they gave up the chase In perfect disgust Perhaps bis success In getting overcoats thst be “went for” was in consequence of the large stocks on band, the rapidly waning winter, and tbo comparatively small prices which onr whole sale clothiers are charging for outside wear ing apparel. If he had made the same attempts in the wardrobe line on a drizzly day in Novem ber, be mijjht have been told that overcoats were too valuable to be disposed of for hills which “ can he sent to my father, if yon please, at No. —, Chamber of Commerce.*’ ADHISBIIIENTS, The past track has been a rather uneventful one In our little world of amusements. The operatic season has dosed and we are left to Indulge in phasing anticipations on the great event “sooa to arrive"—the advent of Rislorl. The theatres have done a smooth, steady business, although nothing extraordinary has transpired at either of them. Perhaps the skating parks have ab sorbed a « greater shaic of attention than any other species of - amusement. Not a single interruption has yet occurred, since the Qm breath of winter came, to tho pleasures of the ice. The frost has kept np wonderfully since Christmas. nor docs there yet soom to bo any in dication of a break down. Wo were already in the middle of the season at a time when we were generally making preparations to commence. Carnivals and masquerades were the fashion last week. .The Central Park led otT, and the man agers- of ihc several Kinks followed suit. They are very agreeable festivals, these fancy carnivals, ond very profitable to the mana gers, for they never fail to attract immense crowds. Put nothing that could be termed ex- ccllcnt or artistic m the matter of dresses has yet been piodnced at either of them. They are in fact all one and the same carnival. Toe same crowd of maskers who disported themselves at the Central on Wednesday went to the Wabash Rink on Thursday, and will again go to the West Side Rink on Monday. There was the same ass’s head, the same goblins, the same clowns, and kings and queens, and the only vari ation in the show was to be seen in the spectators and the places where they exhibited. It requires a stretch of imagination to look at these awk wardly got up figures, and conceive them to be a Jolly company ofmmy•makers, gone mad with frolic and enjoyment. They are rather sorry mas queraders, me best of them, and seem to he simply making sport for the Philistines, while they tuemselvcs are cndnnng tho tortures ofgnfibcation. A ically good masquerade would be a treat, better than a play, could we get to gether a cumber of personages capable of sup porting tho characters they are pleased to assume. Aside from the carnivals, which are principally to be commended in tbatthey succeed In drawing together large assemblages, the art of skating appears to be prosecuted more vigorously this winter than on any former season. We have quite a number of “ star ” skaters In the city now, espe cially among the fair sex a number ox whom ap pear to be advancing last into eminence in this branchof “art 1 ’ The heavy snow storm which fell on Saturday night will doubtless Inaugurate a now season of sleighing, and this will vary fora time the char acter of our winter sports, which have hitherto been too exclusively confined to the Parks and Rinks. Ristoiu.— Tho Queen of Tragedy will make her first appearance before a Chicago audience at the Opera House on Monday night, the Slat instant. Tne sale of scats will commence on Tuesday morning at the box office. Ton Opeba.—The last notes of the Strackosch warblers have been beard in our midst. Tho mat inee on Saturday was well attended, though the

weather terribly militated against it, and the last opera ol the season was given In a highly satis factory style. McVicKEs’s Theatre. Miss Ccdle Rush closed on Saturday evening the first week of her engagement here. She has made a very favora ble impression npon the Play-going public, as has been evinced by the gradually increasing size of the audiences since her opening night. On Mon day evening Miss Rush will undertake the role of "Lady Isabel” in “East Lynne,” In which she Is said to have won high praises from competent Judges. Wc were recent ly favored with Lndllo Western's powerful ren dition of this character, and ail who witnessed It will doubtless have a curiosity to near Mias Rash's version, and compare notes. Wrsic*.—The comedy or “A Hundred Thousand Pounds," drew good houses during the greater part ol the week and proved a very ac ceptable play. It was withdrawn on Friday, when a variety bill took Its place. On Monday evening the play ol "Lost in Lon don” will be reproduced. Cnosnr Grata House.—A new theatrical troupe Is announced to appear on Tuesday night at the Opera House, for a brief season, under the man agement of Mr. D. N. Wheeler. Prom Incut among the members of the company are the names of John Dillon ana Johanna Claussen. The former has alrcad) disappointed the public so often that a considerable course or promptness and good conduct will be required on bis part to restore pnbllc confidence m him. Ho bas Crom i?ed as mneb, and bis friends will trust that e falls not to keep his promise, Miss Claoeeen ip a lively and spirited young ertifte, who has wou for herself the Stood opinion of ihc public. They are supported by a competent dramatic company, many of whose names are well known In this city. Toe pieces announced for the open ing night are “Handy Andy" and "Married Life." IDE WOODTIANSEE-irYAN CASE, The Charge of Swindling:—Progress of the Case—An Explanation. The case of William Ryan, charged with swind ling J. L. Woodmansce out of nine hundred dol lars by a confidence came, was again brought be fore the Police Court on Saturday afternoon, but it appeared that Itjrau had already been Indicted before the Grand Jury on Friday, and as no pros ecuting witnesses appeared, the case was dis missed at the Police Court. As considerable comment has been made npon the case, It Is duo to Justice Sturtevant and the Police authorities that rome farther explanations should be made. A warrant was issued tor the arrest ol Ryan on the l-Uh day of December. Mr. Woodmansce. resid ing at a di lance from the cby. was re peatedly notified by mall and telegraph to mako his appearance to prosecute a suit against Ryan for obtaining money by false pretences. To accommodate bis uuexotalcoi! de lay, the case was continued two or three times, Ryan making an appearance and being desirous for an examination on each occasion. Upon bis arraignment at the Police Court on the 3d lest., Mr. Woodmansce still absent, he was dis charged from custody. Ryan was re-arrested on the old warrant of De cember 14th, and again bronght before the Police tribunal the next day [after bis discharge. Mr. Woodmansce was then present. It appeared from his statement that he was m the city several lionrs before Ibe last previous examination of Ryan, but wbtn asked by Justice Sturtevant why be did not come forward to prase ento the case, he was manlfoaite embarrassed, and could mako no direct and Satis factory rcoly. His singular mtnncr, and his ab sence on former occasions when tb.6 prisoner was ready for trial, excited tbe suspicions of the Court that there was somethin'* in the case which old not appear npon thq fee of it, and that favored very much ot pcrsecullon. It was iot for htm to countenance such a course, if Jjo did. know that "the prisoner 1 c *-°™ Into Vas a I well-known thief, and blackleg." The additions! statement of an p4i>or that Justice Sturtevant Mid, when fixing the amount of ball, that tfyen was an "hon cable thief, always coming up nromp'ly to trial nt tro time scried on, amt norm' forgetting bis ball ” Is presumed to have hood a draft on the writer's Imagination. <o tbo\e personally acquainted with Justice Hturfevaut thv' statement would not teed any refutation, hut jrhh those who do not know him, and hts hind but firm and dignified bearing fn Court, It might h-jmo him, and, convey abroad an lmp*." 9 *V m that onr Police Court .Judgesarc In collv'"* on with thieves nnd criminals, and always read* * lO look upon Ibcra with leniency and forbearance. . Upon being rearrcslcd Iho prisoner had a legs ' right to a continuance of the esao for tbo purpose of pieparing his defence, and It was f rrantrd him. la consideration of the act that be had been two or throe times ready for Inal upon hts first arrest, and tbo suspicion that bo was. lor some unknown cause, being persecut ed, bis bail was rrduved to SSOU. A man named Illlcy, swearing to the bet that ha (Riley) was worth 120.000 or KXMno In real estate, was accept ed os Ua ball. Tbo Police Justices aro not in the habit of examining those who offor themselves for boll regarding their moral character, and so the ‘’notorious ‘Count* Klloy,” though he rosy be a bad man, was accepted and there Is no doubt but that be was abundantly responsible. The paper, already quoted from, Intimated that Ityan would not bo likely to make bla appearance on Saturday last; " simply keeping hlmselfont of tbo way, bo wonldnot on* ty secure bla personal liberty, but make a clear gain of WOO.” Uyan did make bla appear ance, and It la alleged that he had been ap proached with offers to compromise the alleged swindle by those who are en gineering thojntcrosts of Mr. Woodmanseo, but that he, whether an "honest” thief or not, pro* ferred a Judicial Investigation of the matter. U baa also been reported,(though with what truth wo have not boon able to ascertain.) that Mr. Woodmanseo was restrained by certain parties from making his appearance nt the Police Court. The action of Justice Hturievant In the case, an* dor all iho circumstance*, would only seem to be tu consonance with hla well-known attributes— justice tempered with mercy. Obituary* In sno'ber column of this paper la recorded the death of Brevet Major Charles n. Bosmer, First Infanrrr. U. H. A., with the customary announce* ment of the date of the funeral. lie was bom in the city of Now York on tbo 16lb of October, 1840, and waa consequently, at Ihe time of hla decease, In (he S7tb year of bis sge. Be removed to Chicago In November, 1951, and was engaged In the banking busi ness until the breaking out of tbe rebel lion. Prior to that event be had Join ed tbo celebrated Ellsworth Zonaves, and was prominent among that well disciplined and soldierly body of young men for proficiency in drill. He accompanied them on thdr Eastern tour, taking aa active part in all their exhibitions. Early In If6l, npon the recommendation of General Mansfield, then commanding In Washing ton, Major Bosmer waa appointed Second Lieu tenant in the First Infantry of the regular army. Be then served In that city successively on the staffs of Generals Mansfield. Burnside, Pltx John Porter and Casey, when, with- his command, be was ordered to the West for sendee in the field: his regiment belse employed as artillerists, and he being Disced in the command ofa section of a bat tery of heavy guns. From this time until after the capitulation of Vicksburg, bis command were actively engaged- in the various severe contests which took place In connection with the Western campaigns. At Franklin; upon Ihcbloody plains of Corinth; at Island Number Ten:'the siege of Vicksburg; and other memorable fields of battle. Major Hosmer displayed that gallantry, steadi ness and unflinching courage, which secured for Lim not only the meed of praise ofhls comrades, but (be substantial notice of bis country with two brevet promotions. Subsequently, he waa ordered to New Orleans, and it was while fallbfnlly serv ing there be laid tbe foundation for tbo disease which has recently so abruptly terminated' his career. Ills life was a bright example of refinement and nobility of character, be practiced none of tne vices which are unhappily so prevalent among the young men of the present age, hot lived a life of punty and strict morality. Of an amiable dlspo* eitloo, be was beloved by all who knew him. Be was modest to a fault, and it was this trait, per* baps, as marked as his great personal courage In the honr of dancer, which constituted one of the greatest of his charms. Of bis career as a soldier hot little could be learned from bla own lips; lie was too self-deprecating. It was to his brother officers that his friends were Indebted for tbe knowledge of tbe manylncldcnts of his gallantry on tbe field of battle. Elec his pral*ca in that re spect would have been forever unsung. His disease was consumption, tbe immediate cause of bla death bolcg a violent hemorrhage of the lungs. Be passed away calmly and peace* folly, with a sweet smile of assent upon his Ups when Inquired of as to his aasnrancc of a home in Heaven, lie bad fought nobly for his coantrv; be died a Soldier of the Cross, enlisted in the army of the Lord.
