The Liqooe Lfcw.?Important Dttiston.?On Saturday, Mra Honors Ktehler was brought before hit honor Judge Merrick, of the circuit court, on a writ of katems ceepe*, and asked through her eoanael, Edwin C Morgan, Esq , to be discharged. Mra Kiehlcr was arrested. some weeks lace for a violation of the act of Congreas of August 5th, 1881, forbidding tbe sale or sdminiaterlng of Intoxicating liquor* to soldiers, and, tn demit of paying the fine, she was committed to jail, fram which she now atked to be discharged Mr. Morgan contended that the act of Congress gave the Judge of the Criminal Court exclusive Jurisdiction of the trial; that the magistrate^ jurisdiction extended to the right to hold the ac?uaad parties to bail to appear at the Criminal Court, or to commit them to tail to appear before the court. In support of hie position, he contended that the act, la declaring the offense to be a misdemeanor, thereby made it a criminal offeaaa, for whleh the party must be lcdtcted and tried as lo any other criminal caae. The magli? tmtea have no criminal jurisdiction, and the court presided over by Judge Crawford is the only court which In these cases bave jurisdiction. The offense, thus being declared by act of <?ongreaa a crime, moat be tried by jury, according to tbe sixth article of the amendmeota to the Constitution of the United States. He also contended tbat, under this construction of tbe act, all flnea imposed on parties after conviction tn the Criminal Court go Into the Treasury of tbe I'nlfd States. Judge Merrick sustained the position taken by tbe counsel, Mt Morgan, and decided tbat tbe magistrate in tbeae casca bad precisely the same power and no more than ther had in any other Tiastaai charge, to wit: the power to examine InTe the charge and to release the party chirgcd, or In bis discretion to bold the party to ball to appear at the criminal court, or in default of bail to commit the party to jail for trial at the criminal court. The Judge ordered the Marshal to take the petitioner before the magistrate by whom she Was committed, to be then discharged by him, or to give ball for ber appearance at the criminal court, should the magistrate on a further examination think the case required It. The decision, of course, has attracted considerable attention, as most of the magistrates have, In all caaea where the proof was atrong enough to convict the parties, enforced payment of the Ine by tbe usual legal process The money collected In this wsv will, we presume, have to be refunded when the decision Is officially made known to the maglatratea Cistiil Guardhouse Casks?Before Jurtict Walters ?Sunday, Samuel Dorsey and Lucy Doroey. disorderly conduct; fined ?l 94 Henry Wllliama and Wm.

Some of the little fellows are cautious enorgh to hold the rains and stand upon the groOnd, others have grown so bold as to mount the meat fiery animals and ride around, while waiting for tbelr cwners. Yesterday afternoon a little fellow of this venturesome kind was badiy bruised by *>eing thrown from a borse on the avenue near >.xth street. He was picked up and properly eired for by gentlemen who were near. Officers should either refuse to give tbeir horses to such small children, or caution them against mounting them.
