CKI3L coir. An Adolteroa Two Bonn In lee* Water. [lniilanM’oUa Correspondence of theCloclamtl Commercial.] There Is a nearly obsolete statute in this State which forbids what some old-fashioned people call the “crime 1 ’ of adnlter/.aud this must/ statute has been exhumed to brine to prK-f a pair who have loved not wisely, but t«xi well.” John Schaflert-who Is the lawfhl husband of a wife and the father of aJamllv oi l.eiUmate children, variously estimated at from seven to nineteen in number has lone been llvlne on suspiciously Intimate terms with v woman named Lizzie Wilson John has frequently lea his family In a stale of utter luipecunhwlly, with the demons of I.murcr and nakcducas holding high carnival In their domiciliary accommodations while he has made pleasure excursions to *sundrr of resort m Ohio and Kentucky tax ire Lizzie along for the pleasure of her charmsociety, and registering her at the hotels unde- his own delectable patronymic with the ornate prefix Ol “Mrs.’’ J ’ For some months past the hilarious John Ja* caused his paramour to be subsisted at the n»ldcnce ol a Teutonic friend on the cor f‘‘ r r l CW Vincent streets,telling }i<£he Uy reßldin « tbcre that the lady was The other nlcht his wile ventured to sne- Vf. nelJ ? r h lVremnluine an hour v nh his family, and paid the penalty of her temerity by bc'ni: treated to fkmilT disci- I'lme in the ebapo of a severe beatlug from Ibe cbiralions Schaffer.

The masculine victim was soon sccnred and then the officer commanding the expe dition set about looking up the fair but fiagilc fugitive. He bad not witnessed The fight, as he had been paying marked atten tion to hi r companion, while his men were all outside guarding the doors aud other apertures to prevent the egress of the tmfor turate conple. Having searched tbe house ho proceeded with a torch, or other means of illumination, to explore the cellar, where, to hw intense disgust, he suddenly found himself in water nearly up to Im neck. Of course, no woman or other living aul luhl could be concealed there; so he leh his hath and searched tbe nousc again. After spending more than an hour in vain explor ations. he heard a noise at the cellar door, and, on opening it. found the woman, who had tainted from the terrible effects ol nearly two hours’ Immersion in Ice-cold water with her head concealed beneath a wooden bowl. It is not particularly remarkable that a naughty woman should be arrested, though the crime lor which this woman suffers has come to be regarded with great leniency; but it is probable that no other woman ever in flicted such horrible tor'nre upon herself to avoid the shame and disgrace of arrest and exposure. Two hours in Ice-water, and nearly naked! It would make one shiver In July to think of it. A KOVEL RACE. A IVeck-and*Nrcu. Kace Between Two \\ omen and a Cab.

C'OItPOUAL PCMsII.TIE.NT Vi THE SCHOOL*. fi4.22U.70 The school system of Chicago, as a whole, Is an admirable ono, bat U wonM be strange If, In the lltde army ol nearly three hundred teachers, some were not lotuid incapable of ben g trusted with the authority over children which their position Cites Uum. and if instances of cruel and czces* alvc pnnrsbment shon’d occasionally occur. At the last meeting of the Board of Boncatlon it was staled that corporal punishment seemed to be becoming more frequent, forty-elcht case* hiring been reported from one school during the pa«t mouib. * Inspector Clarke rolled the attention of the Board *o a case of violent punishment which was reported to Llm. Itwas stated, on good authority, that, for the trivial ofinice of spilling Ink upon (be ac- k or floor, a teacher bad punished tbe little offender. a child ol tender years, by prlcxing ink. wim a pen. Into Its In numerous places; and that tro poison of tbe fluid had passed into tbe child’s blood, with most painful results, causing the arm to swell U> the elbow. Hr. Clarke said that, II the report ucic Irue, the teacher ought not to be allowed to remain in the school any longer. Thu was by no means ihe first instance of a simi lar nature, lie had seen a IlMle girl whose hafid had men so savagely beaten that ft was blackened and swollen, ana matter was running from It. De was indignant that mch onlrsvos could be perpe trab d, and thought teachers who were guilty of them should be at once discharged. A motion was oCernl and discussed to Instruct tbe buperlniendent and the committee tor tbe school menilot cd. to Investigate the case, and if the lads v ere found to be as euted, to discharge the *eachcr pmliy of lb* outrage. It was argued, however, that the report might have been exagger ated, and Cbai tbe action might be unjust to the teacher concerned, sod the matter was finally dropped, with tbe miderstarding that ihe Super in’enoant should investigate it and report. Cares o! this bind deserves (be severest censure, and the teachers who can so abuse the power iu their bands as to tortureUUle children are not fit fur their rcepocsible callings.

The Opera iioum l-ottery. To the Editors of the Chicago Tribune: ho much uaa hern written on the Opera Bouse lottety that theaubjcctmar seem to be exhausted; hut there Is one point ol View in which l 1 has been little. If at all, noticed. 1 refer to the part taken byproicssingChns’iana and men of high moral standing and worth, and the beating which mclr influence has Bad on the community.

He made all the whiskey be could, and held u back from market till the tax had so Inert ased its value aa to make bun a millionaire. Here waa the foundation of the Opera House; it waa based in immorality. Be invested his iil-go:ien wealth la erecting a atructore wtuch wto Immortalise himself.

By what conr>c of reasoning men could persuade them stives that a lottery on a great scale was right, w hile those on a small scale were wrung, it more than I can see. Gambling Is an evil ou whatever »calc It Is carried on. Han not Mr. Crosby’s lot tery bad the endorsement of respectable menu coulu not have been successfully cairied on—lt would have goto upas the "rift enterprises" I are—hot aa 1* is, it is a snccsis to him.
