Another Row at tlik I'kmtrntiar' ?llGw H'.i>ltr gtis Skot?Another attempt was made l>y the convict* in the penitentiary to escape on Saturday ni^ht last, which wai fortunately suppnsifd by the guards. It seem* that about 1.! o'clock on Saturday night some twelve or flftecn of the prisoners who occupy the hospital win" of tht penitentiarr and of whom four notorious fellow* named "lius"' Heisier, John Kay, Henry Williams, and one Trice were the ringleaders, essayed to escape from their clf*e quarters by picking a hole through the wall of their cell. The plan bad probably been arranged s?n>' time, and the prisoners must have felt exlrtinely sanguine of success, as they did not scruple to announce during the week to the Warden that they intended to leave on Saturday nigh*. One of the gan?: took occabion to tell this to the Warden in a bragging toue, as If to defy ail precautionary efforis on his part. The Wardt n aid not, it seems, ?tta< h mnch importance to the threat, but two of thp CODrlllH*^ tn u'"trh If th?? would be made. They accordingly secreted themselves in the north r.rfson vard ?fti>r thr con vji u bad been locked up for tbe night. About 11 % o'clock they heard very distinct v the sound of acbisel at work in tLe wall overhead, and btfore long discovered that quite a large hole bad oeen lusde at the side of tbe window, large enough for a man to paw throngb readily. The bole was stopped up with a pillow for tbe sake of appearances until the crowd got ready to make *4#wr deso**it. Presently the pillow was withdrawn. axi * rope made of bed blankets wn* tbrust oat, and oue end rrnde fast to the window, la a moment Heisler mr.de bis appearance at the bole, and creeping through descended rapidly to the ground, and by the time he touched the ground Ray appeared at tbe bole and began to descend Tbe two guards instantly fired upon tbe men, one of tbe. discharges from a musket loaded with buckshot taking effect In He'sler's leg Ray was not bit, and took tfcu back track towards d'.s cell. This sudden checkmate put* stop to all further attempts at escape.

Oefhaxs' Cofht ?On Saturday, the business before Judge Purcell was principally of tbs ordinary character?the filing of petition!, tne presentation and passage of btlls against the estate-* of various deceased persons, In process of settlement. A report from the administrator upon the estate of the late John Little, relative to the sale of a slave, was overruled upon the ground that it was vague and Indefinite It wm ordered to be amended to show the date of sale, the name of the slave, and also of the purchaser. The case of the Mclotyre estate was called and begun, Mr Uavidge, tor the hetrs, reading the . petition and statement setting forth that the late Alexander Mclntvre died posseted of certain property, among whirh are mentioned certain negroes and bank stock. The widow was appointed by the Court the admlntst-aUlx, and in i?? return or property madf to tbe Court this wm rt'.urned mid?r proteat In tbe administration account tbe administratrix failed to cfcarge hem if with It The petition nsk?-d th;tt the account may Hecorrecled hi toia respect, before beinx passed by tbe Court. Mr Bradley responded for tbe admin Istratrix, claiming for ber a sole right to tbe prop* ertv referred to; its settlement upon her and her children by a farmer husband, previous to ber marriage with deceaaed; and that tbe deceased never had, nor pretended to have, a title to tbe property. The Court ordered that tbe testimony should be taken and written for conalderatlon; which waa begun, and will be continued at tbe sittlnga of he Conrt until concluded.

That night when (he went to her room the trunk waa gone, and the next morning tbe officer* found it in the cellar, broken open, and S2<>0 extracted from it. Ann Shipley hat been upwards of three veara in witness' employ, and baa been generally trusted. Pstr'ck and Ann both knew that the money wai kept In tbe trunk Patrick haa been in witness' employ about a year. There area good many boarder* In tbe house There are only four servants The keys of tbe back part of tbe house fit tbe lock of witness' room, but ontbat night th?"re was only one key upstair* that would tit that lock.
