There are robbers about, and they 1 * go” for an U.cmiate stranger with money in his parse. rccO was the experience of P. J. Naws, a youth (Tom Detroit, who came hither a lew days ago to “have a time,” and yesterday was victimized by seme obliging triends whom be encountered in bis rambles. Mr. Naws.bad succeeded in spend ing not of bis money here In a legitimate man ner, and bad JnsttfiO left. This be determined to squander In a friendly way, and he met with some fellows In a saloon who were precisely tbe men who ccnld assist him to do it. He In vited them to drink, which they did. lie drink himself, and drank so often tbst in a short time be toond himself In the same predicament as David CopperfleM, when be cntmainco his friends at home. In odtor words, he became very drank, an extremely precarious SvllloD for a Detroit to tall into in Chicago, is triends led him from one place to another till finally they reached ths vicinity of tbe Pittsburgh, Fort’Wayne A Chicago depot. Out of pure kindness, probably for the purpose of cooling hia fevered brain, they conducted him into an open vard and gently deposited him in a mud puddle, relilnc him be woulu feel better In half an hour. He thanked them tor their consideration and said be woulu never forget them. He swore eternal friendship, and allowed bis friends to embrace him. is doing so they relieved toe unsuspecting youth of his last douar and a gold watch and chain. ■ After getting ssliffac'only cooled os; tbe young man from Detroit arose with a vaqne feeling in his mind that he had been swindled. He remem bered enough of bis cdnipanluna to give a de scription of them to a friend, who conveyed it to the notice. The unfortunate youth, however, was to ciscnsted by this lime with bis experience o the Carden »Ttr that be borrowed as much mone« as would cany trim back to Detroit, and in th evening be departed lor hone, resolving that be would never come again to Chicago to have a "lime.* Dally Union Prayer WoeUng.

After singing “Heavenls my home.” Mr. Jackson read from the fid chapter of the First Epistle of Peter, and nude some practical remarks relative to ths firm foundation of tbe Christian faith. Mr. B. F. Ja cobs said that in tbe rtlorfs which he bad put forth daring the past week In behalf of those whoa be fl wired to rescue from a rife of sin. and which bad termed so Inadequate to reach the desired end, he baa l«so cnsblcc in some feeble degree to realize tbe magnitude of tbe buroen which Christ had borne, not for the/eir. bat for the whole world. A gentleman rcmaikcd that one Sabbath a class of tight lltUc boys in h»» Mission Sunday School was in want ol a teacher in tbe absence of their regular teacher, sick, and as thne was no belter one »o be bad. be mvveda man who had leda dis sipated life to bear them recite their lesson from the tfchd chapter of St. John’s Gospel. It so hap pened that tbe class had committed one and tbe same verse, *• Except a man be born again he can not see the Kingdom of God.” Toe verse, a ser mon t • I Im, was preached by these little ones eL-ht rimes in a few moment*. It caused him to think ot its meaning, and st last to break away Pom his dissipation and commit himself to a Christian Hie. He war now an earnest Sunday School teacher. A gentleman rose and said tbst three months sgo be was a profane, unhappy man. He bad receded upon his situation, tni bad enjoyed a peaceful mind and blessed experience since. By unh tt.d prater he bad sought pardon of bis sins. The meeting it held in the Firs' Methodist Episcopal Church, comer of ClaiKand Washing* ton streets, from 12 a. to 12.43 p- m.

Salt Against the C. 0. H. A. A—A geene In ■ Jutlee’a Court-Value of ■ Ticket—No Damages— A Crosababr. It is one of the priceless poaseaaloaa of an American aUxm that he cau go t j law at any tmo and for any ptorocatoon. The amount of the wrong alleged does not decide hla right or bis |r. cUsaiton. Be belUvea in the eternal principles of Justice, and win see them prevail, even at the ex pense of hit pocket. Pemb fillhy lucre! J'aaxtota f.at coefvm firt rwcL lie purchases a diminutive meunre of peaaala frost an enterprising apple-stand mac. Ue pays therefor a dl apidated specimen of postal currency. Be *has been assured that toe merchandise a fresh and sound. He eito; be finds much decay abounding; also some uo oleaslng animation; he baa been deceived; he la wroth; hla money has been taken without an equivalent. Then fore, ontruged Justice most be satisfied. Be calls upon t&e minUtera of U«; suit la instituted; lawyers 'rejoice end record lib eral fees. The case ia tried, and the platntldloce* not only the value of the nnsuund peanuts but tbe handsome hillofcoeta which tbe long fingers of the law have drawn from hla pocket. But what of that? He hat bad the satisfaction of becoming acquainted wiihjustlce incarnated In the august forma of taw. Be baa the inward conscio tube** of resisting wt one-doing; tbe sweet thought that he has endeavored lo bring fraud to retribution, fie ia content. So in other cases, large or small, tbe law Is the ready and qnlcklT-songut arbiter— the first retort of ibe outraged American clttx-’n. Whatever tbe amount involved—a peanut, a potato, a peck ot peas, a eat, a dog. a cow, a horse, a dwelling, an opera house—tbe law is invoked, its not uncostly decision awaited. True law docs not mean eqmty—at least not always. ILe tots of a penny would be nearly as reiisole ai.d considerably lees expensive. But the ms cbmcry of justice must be lubricated, onr lawyers —are they not all honorable men ?—most live, and so it la well perhaps that so many are ready to fly to tbe courts, and pour out their substance for the pleasure* of litigation. Toe ordinary legal combats in our justices’ courts are not of overpowering Interest to tbe gcocral public. A suit lor tbe sum of five dollars ranly is noted in ibe papers—seldom Is beard of outside of the circle of (hose in trreslcd—almost never affects the people of many different States. But cne occurred?esterday la which thousands throughout the union have a concerr. II was an action for a debt of five dol lars. “ The Croeby Opera Bouse Art Association " Is a eoyhimlam of which the reader may have beard. He may have Invested fire dollars in it; be may have tailed to draw the Opera House; be may feel icdistant at the managers for thus Defrauding him; he may want hla money hack. If ao hla feelings singularly coincide with those oi Mr. Daniel L. Snia, of Chicago. Bat there it this difference: Tbe gentle . reader, after experiencing all these occurrences ard emotions, tried only to forget them. Mr. Sills, made of- sterner staff, does not calmly »i: down under the load of Injustice, but comes forth to demand its punishment. There fore he appeal* to the proper source, and there is issues in the rotund and majestic words of the law the following document: State of Illinois. Cook coutny, as. The People of the State ot Illinois to any Constable of said County, gi cel log: You are hereby commanded to summon W. F. ('ooibaago. Jatma B. Bowen, John C. Dorc. Ira Y. SI nun. J. A.

CaiviH D'lVoiv, Jostice of the Peace. As we cartated last week, the trial of this action for debt wu postponed until Wednesday, Febru. ary 19th. Accoralngly yesterday morning the parties appeared at the bar (not bar-room) of Jus* ilea D'Vvoif. Messrs. Gookloa A Roberto represented the plaintiff, by Mr. Roberto. The mary defendants appeared iu (bo person of Mr. Hitchcock, of Messrs. Hitchcock A Dnpee. .Mr. bills wu aiao on band to louk after bis own interests. There was not that gravity and sense ot rctnonalbliltyon tbe part of tbe able counsel on both side* tr at woold be expected from a cun of forravearature. In fact, they evinced much cbceifulness, not to say levity, before and dnna< lie trial. One ot them observed that the case should be called ao "action fur partition,'' aa there ore quite a number equally Interested In tbe structure whose disposal waa fa question, and a division might be claimed. It was also suggested that Mr. A. U. Ire. a gentleman somewhat kuuwn o fame on account of the oecullinty of til* right a'.Ure. vhould have been made the principal defend ant ; hot being I" slialtened urcnmetance*. it •res probably not thought advUiUiu to include bun- 'ibe tact that ilr. James C.Fargo,onc of (bo C.O. U. A. A. Committee, was cot included la the imunDU, was accounted for by the statement ibalbatad left the city—probably to escape the cooicrjncnccs ot tie participation la the onus coons otience which was about to be condemned by toe trnmpet tones o! tbclaw. Tbe Jnstice called the case of Sills rs. Cool* bansb and others. Foot witnesses for Ibo plain* tin lifted np their haads and awore—not profane* ly, but legally. air.

Did be know the maragersf lie bad not that honor, but he bad beard that Mr. Itowen The counsel for deiendants objected to the intioducllon of hearsay evidence In a case ot such Importance, and the conxt coin* dfltd. " __ Had Mr. Wright bought a ticket tn the C. 0. 11. A. A.! Ugrivvcdbttapoiay thaihebad. There* collection was bitter, tor be did not draw the O. 11. Did he know that the ticket was issued by tbe C. O. D. A. A. X He could not say that he dtd, but he waa so infoimed. Did the Association Issue a large number of tickets! He saw a large numoer befog sold In a room in the O. U. Dtd be know Mr. Crosby! Unfortunately no. Were the tickets sold like this one now held up! They were. Did he know Mr. bills! Yes, but knew nothing abont the demand made by him. What was pud tor this ticket! Objected by the defeddanl’s coon* set that this ticket might never have been sold. Then what did ho pay for one like it! Be paid fire dollars. Was no present at tbe drawing! He was. Did he know the committee! No. Wha* did be see done! He saw aome gentlemen come In with boxes ondcr their arms which were raid to certain tickets. Some they placed in a laige wheel and some In a small wheel. They rolled these wheels, and one man drew oat from each at the same time, a number and a prize being taken by chance from tbe wheels. What did the —*•- Um O.u wulj tUU "Hal waa aaid. Objected again that hearsay evi dence was tot proper. Allowed by the Coart to proceed. Tbe cumber drawn was announced with tbe cumber of tbe prize. He understood that it was a lottery. Tbe Court informed the wittess ihat be need not give bts opinion la regard to Its being a lottery. lUd the witness know how the Association wa> organized! No. Did he know If this is Ur. Crosby's signature ! No. Witness 01 mutated. Mr. Thomas J. Holt was next Interrogated. HU evidence was brief. He knew most of the managers of the C. O. H. A. A. Was not present at tbe drawing, and did not know whether they w ere present. He bad bought tickets. Thought ttut the ticket exhibited was issued by the Asso ciation. He bod area many similar ones in the room in the Opera Boose where they were sold. Be bought bis of a handsome yonng lady with a waterfall. Mr. Hitchcock asked if he knew that any of tbe defendants were connected with the aSsir. The witness anew it only l-y the papers. Ur. U. again repudiated the Idea of testimony from snch sources. Mr. W. 6. Sampson made hia responses. Ba was grants] to bU benignant star that he bad not bought any ticket in the C. O. E A. A. Ihe counsel und Cotut cved him with astonishment as tbe mort remarkable man whom they bad recently be held. He proceeded with hia evidence, lie was paermg Ur. Sills’door one day, and that renUe- . man showed him a letter, of watch be bad a copy. Mr. HltcbCMk objected to the production of a copy of a paper, previous notice not having been given, (so delicate arc these points of law.) He proceeded. Mr. Sills’letter was to Ur. Crosby, demanding the return of five dollars. Ur. Buts asked him to mall U Tor him. He did so Thought that Hus was a copy. Be pat it in a Post Office box on State street- It was stamped. Mr.C. F. Chilton testified. Uewr.s present at the drawing in the Opera House, January 21st. Be knew some of tbe gentlemen who conducted tbe drawing. Mr. Dare drew oat of tho large wheel and banded tbe tickets to a gcntlcmanfrom SI. Louis. He evidently bad a hand in it. Mr. Mnsn anoonnerd the result to the audience- Mr. Hitchcock objected that as Mr. Moon was not re turned on (he summons and so not before the Court, he conld not be testified against. The wit ness proceeded. Mr. Unnn announced that none of tbe nnsolo tickets in Mr. Crosby's possession bad drawn tbe first prize. Be did not buys ticket (happy man 1) but be had one 111] The witness retired, ihe connsel for tbs plain tiff and defendants were asked If they had any thing more to say. They bad not The Coart lookup ns judicial pen. It hesitated not It re marked that the evidence produced was not suffi cient to convict the defendants. It wrote on the brown paper abool the summons. "Judgment •gainst the plaintiff for costs," and Ihe sou was tided. Mr. Crosby and the com mi'tce may rest at case for the present certificates In the C. O. H. A. A. will again decline. They were not beyond price in the morning. At noon they were a drag upon ihe market—if paper can be a drag. Mr. trills, not unnaturally, is not convinced. He is not pietsed. Be has lost his soil and some do) iare of costs. Bat he does not give op tbe ship. He says this thing shall come up again, la anoth er shape. Tbe lawyers will be glad thereat and the public win be edified. Let the case come on I we notice th« a new scheme la advertised by B. F.

Tbe poetry, if good. Is of tbe classic order, too, being moulded on tbe Latin plan—ln hexameters—tbe horse supplying four of the feet and tbe rider two. Yankee itohinsou has improved os this idea- In the celebrated four horse act of Mr. Peny, the verse may-be described as "font line-eighteen*”— the lines being tbe reins, and the horses and one niter Inralabing the required nnmbereffect- Another variety is ex hibited m tbe riding of James Robinson and tne infant Clarence on a bare-backed steed without reins—that may be fitly described as "no line eights."

A Yoons Girl leknowledges that she Fired a llooac— Plots Aealnst a Bal* let Gin. [From tbe Buflhlo Exprere, February 11.] A singular affair occurred yesterday at Po lice Station No. 1, by which some light was thrown on at least two transactions which have hitherto been shrouded In mystery. Doting tbe afternoon Captain Nicholson was approached by a neat looking: who said she tclt badly, and wanted to tell him something which troubled her, and thereupon acknowledged haring recently sto len a chemise from Mrs. Mulholland, of the American Hotel, on the Terrace. The gar ment was then on her person. Mrs. M. was sent for, and on examination the girl was placed In the cells, not, howercr, beloro she had confessed to Captain Nicholson one of the most singular stories of crime, without any conceivable motive, we have been called on to record. Our reportervisited her at tbe Station House, at a late boor last night, and obtained from her the detail! of the narra tive : She gave her name as Margaret Kane and says she Is seventeen years old. She Is a *irl of fine appearance, quiet and innocent n looks, and was neatly attired. She was born in Rochester bat lost her parents, when she was nine years of age, she at that time being employed In a family residing at Toronto. Afterwards she went to live at Niagara Falls with a nephew of Mr. Riggs, formerly agent of the Merchants* Union Express Company in this city. About a year since she came to Buffalo and was employed as a rervant in Mr. Riggs* family, then re eidlng'onSixth street. Sometime ioNovem bcrl&st. It will be remembered, Mr. H.’s house took Arc at an early hour in the morning, the rear being entirely consumed. No cause could be assigned for the Are, though it was thought at tbe time that it was the work of an incendiary lor whom, we believe, a reward was offered. Since then no cine has been found to the mystery. Margaret now ac knowledges that the fire was kindled by hen she says that she occupied the little room leading from the kitchen; that she thought of tbe matter in the evening and re tired as usual. Rising before it was light she set Are to some shavings in a wood box near the stove, and then went back to bed. She can give no reason for her conduct, and states that she “ does not know why she did it.” She had always been well treated by Mr. and Mis. Riggs. Soon after, tbe family, In consequence of tbe damage done the house, removed to the American Hotel, whither Margaret, still a trusted servant, accom panied them. A few weeks since she announced that she had been robbed of some clothing an** a num ber of trinket*. One of the latter was found In tbe room of a girl named Ida Rush, em ployed as a ballet dancer In a low resort on Main street, who was anosted and tried for tbe tbcfl, but was discharged. Margaret

now confesses that 9he was never robbed of the articles in Question, but homed most of them herscli. The suspicion which was awakened In the house •gainst Ida Hash prompted her to strengthen the evidence, and she therefore con cealed the box of trinkets in the apartment occupied by the ballet girl. So far as can be learned from her statement, there was no motive for the crime, as she had never had anv tionble with Ida. The story Is told In a straightforward man ner, with no attempt at concealment, al though the girl says little save In reply to questions. She says she had thought several times of coming to the station house and confessing her crimes Nothing in her ap pearance indicates any unusual sign of men tal weakness except an air of weariness and a constant habit of starting up at every noise and looking up as if expecting some one. She bas kept company with a young man employed in the store of Messrs. Pratt <fc Co. lie bad offered marriage and was refused, but the girl denies that her course, either before or now, has been influenced by any trouble with him. It is to bo hoped that the thread thus brought to light bv Captain Nicholson, may be followed up very thor oughly at the Police Coart this morning, when the girl will be examined. Pnneral of die Late Bin, Sickle*. [From the New Yoik Herald. February n> j The Itmeral took place from St. Joseph's Church, In Sixth avenue, yesterday moraine, at half-past tea o’clock. The remains were encased In a handsome rosewood coffin, literally covered with flowers of rare beauty and exquisite fra prance, and was borne up the central aisle of the sacred building, at* tended by the following prominent officers and civilians ss pall bearers: Major General Gordon Granger. Bnpsdler General H. £. Trctuain, Dr. John M. Csrnochan, Seoor Kabil Cotta. Edward VcrmUye, Major Gen eral A. Pleasanton, Brigadier General Charles K. Graham, James T. Brody. Wm. n. Field. John King. Upon the arrival of the sad procession at the farther cod of the aisle, the burial casket wai placed upon ft calala'Que. aurroonded with burning upera, Immediately in front of husband, acc«mpanled by hl» imire datigblor, bla imroula, now advanced iniear*, and Mr.and Mrs. Baglola. tbe P£ Sou of the deceased lady, occupied aeaU irar the altar. The customary mortuary nasa was offered by the part or oj tho church, Sic Her. Father Farrell, aaaUted by Falbors Boyce and Farsooa, In tU capacity of deacon «*• ler. waa enriched byadoctlora from Rossi IndCaracoao. Durfce the solemn and lm nrrsrtvo eorvlcea an antbem, * Pray for He. wsa rendered with touching aweetnew and pr ibo eburth wa« crowded to It* utmost ca ttily by multitudes who had come to do honor to the departed and to express their avmpatby and reaped for General Sickles In the hour of his heavy soirow. When, ac comosnUd by his daughter, be arose and followed down the aisle all that was mortal of her whom he had loved so well, with step Infirm and tottering, the feelings which the solemnity of the occasion had hitherto re strained broke forth, and the Immense con wre cation rushed tumultuously from the building after him, testifying the hold he had upon their hearts, and the extent to which they shared bis affliction. The funeral cortege then reformed and pro ceeded to the Catholic Cemetery in Second avenue, where the remains were temporarily deposited, to be removed eventually for per m orient interment else where. A few weeks ago an old gentleman and bis lady were coming down from lowa City to Davenport, when the care were crowded. A youngmsngot npaud gave the old lady a seat while bis companion, another youni gent, remained steadfast, and let the oldgentlo man stand. This did not suit our old friend, so he concluded to get a seat In some way, and, quick as thought, turned to the young man on the seat beside his wife, and said: Will you be so kind as to watch that wo man while I get a seat in the other car ? gbe takes fits/’ This startled the young gent. He could not bear the Idea o f taking charge of a fitly woman, so the oldgentlo man got a seat, and his wife never was Known to take a fit afterward, MARKETS BT TELEORAPH. New York Financial New*.
