Upon inquiry amonv; the crowd, we ascertained that th? placard was dropped In the street bv some enterprising recruiting agent, who was engaged in posting similar ones up about on English Hill yesterday afternoon. This being the regular meeting night of the Republican Association, tbere was a Dig crowd present of course, and we noticed numerous lone Hps of paper circulated aboot the room and eagerly presented to favorable consideration by 'be bearers. Tbese slips of paper generally bad a beed and a tail a piece?ao to speak?and it was remarkable to notice bow much alike tbey looked, each having a handsomely Inscribed address at tbe top, and a loos succession of indifferently written names at the bottom; and yet tbe possessors did not appear to be half satisfied with them, aud hurried about in all directions to look for more autographs, which they generally obtained, the signers In most cases having similar ones uf their own, and expecting a similar courtesy in return. Down ?tairs In the caucus room, or Detltion room. there were more of these Ion;; lists of names, and hey grew apace in longitudinal dimension* e? he evening wore away. The following names were read out, (their own ers having presented them to the Association at the previous meeting. for admission Into the re publican ranks,) the Chair stating that if no one objected to them as read, they would be consid ered as admitted to full membership: H.

H'nrv Cry, a free negro, was arrested by police man \ eatman for an assault and battery on a white girl named Ellen Daley. They were both eir ployed at tbe Avenue House, and in tbe course of their business some words passed, and tbe pri soner attacked the complainant, and threw a omniltv nf bnillni/ ural^r nnnn v.? -i j ^ -rw- Mv,t neck. He was held to ball In *300 to appear at the criminal court. The case of Patrick alias Thomaa O'Donnell i and John D alias Daily, waa fully Invalidated. They were charged with assaulting and stabbing Charles Finnegan, which case was reported In the !?tar a few days ago. Finnegan has recovered so far as to be able to resume his business as a driver connected with the " Night Line," much to the rstonlshment of those who saw bim when first taken to the Infirmary. Finnegan testified that he was in a house on the Island (Seventh Ward) where these men were, and they com menced to quarrel with him. At the request of the lady of the house he left, and waa immediate ly followed by the prisoners He was first struck by Daily, who was followed by O'Donnell In the m ttnf Ir wKa Kim * ? i *** ?* J ?

Mr. Brown, of tbe Navy Yard, cried out that bis watch had been stolen, and requested that tbe doors be closed This waa immediately dona, and a general rush was made to the place where Browu stood Here Mr. B stood confront ing one of the hardest kind of a specimens of a three-lingered Jack. He had on a red shirt and this coat, and over that a lopg cloak, which was wrapped closely aDoul Llm Me ?ened that he was a j^eutleinan, and denied that he bad the stolen watch, and politely proposed to step one Ide and be searched. Tbia win done, and no watch, or rather Mr. Brown's watch, was not found upon him, though another one was. which he asserted be bad purchased during the day at a jewelry store in Seventh street, opposite the Center Market. Everybody at once cried out that tbere was no jewelry shop in the neighborhood Indi cated, and things begun to look squally for the strange man with seven lingers ana two thumbs. After a few minutes, a man In the crowd close by wbere the three-lingered Jack had been standing cried out In an' excited voice, ' Here is tbe man's watch. I found It right here on tbe floor." Of ficers Wise and Duvall immediately rushed up snd arrested the man In the red shirt, amid cries of "bring him up here,?let's have a look at the thief," Mr. Brown got his watch, and the wstch-hoase got Mr. Red Shirt.
