A Case o* Kidnapping.?.On Friday, Mina Alt, a German girl, was forcibly taken from the residence of Mr. Jacob Wilson, on .the Island, by two women, and carried to the house of a Mr. Hartagnsis, on Seventh street, between F and G, Island, whom they re quested to take charge of her until they called. The girl, Mina, it will be recollected, is the complainant against CaspeT Saur, who she charges with attempting a rape on her, and who has been held to bail for court on that charge. She was bound to Saur, and after the alleged offense was committed she left his house and hired berseir in the tamily of Mr. Wilson. iSaur charged Wilson with harboring her, and this cage was heard a few days ago by Justice Johnson, who dismissed it. On Friday, as soon as the girl was missed, Mr. WiUon in formed officer Gibson, who went to the rail road to hinder any attempt to take her ont of the city, but subsequently discovered that she was at the place mentioned. The girl states (hat tbe parties who took her away from Mr. Wilson's were Mrs. Dexter and Oatherins Kaimer, both of whom are relatives of Sanrs, who will probably be made to answer for it. A BOCMTY JCJCPER AT THE GARRISON.? Several weeks ago a young man named Syl vester enlisted in the Marine service and was at the headquarters here, but some of his friends being very anxious that he should not remain in the service, it was arranged that he shonld be discharged when he procured an accepted substitute. On Wednesday last they presented a substitute who was passed by tbe surgeon, and the money, two hundred dollars, paid over to him, but before the last process or making him a marine, signing the enlistment had been consumated, he seized the opportunity of maEing his escape with the money by means of going through the hall of the officers' quar ters and he has thus fa* evaded pursuit. The young man, however, procured another substi tute the following day who he held on to until he was fully mustered in and received his dis charge. Orphan's Court, Judge Purcell.?Saturday, the will of Klchard Smith, bequeathing his es zate, real, personal and mixed, to his wife, Covington Smith, who is also nominated as executor, was proved and admitted to probate.

Keese, administrator to the petition ol Weinhold, was dismissed on the ground of its being insulting. Seizing Government horses.?There was quite an excitement throughout the city yes terday in consequence of the putting into exe cution of a late order of the Secretary of War, requiring the seizure of all horses belonging to the Government that are used by its employes or others for private purposes. The number of videttes was increased in all parts of the city, and patrols moved about the streets during the entire day, and by tbis means about one hun dred and twenty horses were taken possession cf, and a large number of persons committed to the Central Guard-house, but afterwards re leased to appear at headquarters to-day. At the corner of 7th street and Pa. avenue, quite a crowd was collected during tbe morning, as at that point a number of horses branded U.?. were detected in hacKs and other vehicles. Fibe.?This morning, about 2 o'clock, two small frames bouses on D street south, between ?ith and 5th streets east, belonging to the estate of the late Gov. AdamB, and occupied by Moses .BelLftfld Keamon, colored, were discovered on fire and entirely consumed. The several lire companies were promptly on the ground, the American Hook and Ladder, Columbia, Ana costia and Government steamer Rucker going in service, and to their efforts the saving of the adjoining property is attributable. The police ot the Filth and Sixth Wards were also on the spot, and rendered all the assistance in their power. Held for Hearinq.?Last night, officers Lynch and Williams arrested John Kane and John McNulty, two boys, aged 11 and 12 ysars respectively, on the charge of sleeping in a wagon, and this morning Justice Glberson dismissed them on this charge, but held Mc Nulty for a turther hearing on the charge of being an accomplice of Pat'k Grady in break ing into a bake-house on 1 street, aud robbing it of a copper kettle, who was caught at the time committed to jail. A Disorderly Hackman Yesterday, John Nagle, a back man, was arrested yesterday by officer Burch lor disorderly conduct on Seventh street and Pa. avenue. Nagle, it appears, was driving his back, ^hen the guard slopped him to examine the horses, and he r&ieed a disturb ance. The officer had considerable trouble in arresting him ana the affair attracted a large crovrd. Justice Giberson, this morning, fined him *5.64.
