A case possessing all the features of a mod dem romance, but having stern reality for its foundation, culminated yesterday at the Toombs Police Court. So thrilliug in its de tails, and extraordinary in its nuusual charac ter, was the case alluded to, that even the officers of the Court, accustomed to the re cital of strange stories of social life, were in credulous of its truth until convinced beyond all doubt by the disclosures which were made in their presence. On Friday evening officer Jefferson, of the Fifth Precinct, while on post in Greenwich street, heard a woman’s voice appealing for help, apparently in the direction of the Des brosses street Ferry. He at the same time saw a man rush through Greenwich street, when he immed ately arrested him. A fash ionably-dressed young lady then came up and stated that the prisoner had drawn a pis'ol and threatened to shoot her. The officer brought the parties to the station house, and Captain Petty locked up the man, who gave his name as James Lennox, an engineer, xe n4 XT T nnctn/M. tVwt charge of threatening to shoot. On search ing the prisoner an lvory-raounte<l and loaded revolver was found in his possession. Later in the evening the girl’s brother came to the station-house, and the story behind the arrest became known. Five years ago the prisoner, James Lennox whose parents are wealthy residents ot Tren ton, paid his addresses to Miss Margaret Car roll, of Jersey City, who was then but six teen years old. They decided to get married, and one evening went to the residence of Fa ther Cassidy for that purpose. With Miss Carroll were her sister, her mother and fa ther. Father Cassidy was unable to perform the ceremony at the moment, and directed them to come a week later. They appointed an evening and left. In die interim Miss Car roll was dishonored by Lennox, and when the evening appointed came it was discovered that be bad tied to Trenton. James Carroll, broth er of the betrayed girl, who was a clerk in a hotel, and who had never seen Lennox, went to the residence ot the latter in Tre n ton, but Lennox escaped by a rear window, while Carroll entered at the street door. Giving up his business, the brother followed Lennox for three years and a half, visit ing Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, New Orleans, Galveston, the Mississippi River towns, Cuba, and even South America, but without finding the fugitive. In the mean time a child was born, and given to Lennox s parents, and the mother has not seen ihe boy since. The poor girl, ostracised from the society in which she had moved, never left the house, and is now consumptive. On Friday evening, some lady friends asked her to go to the Theatre Comique in this city, and after a great deal of persuasion she consented to do so. Just as she entered the theatre she saw Lennox standing at the door. On her speaking to him he said he did not know her, but finally admitted that he did. Ha walked with her to the Desbros ses street ferry, and there attempted to leave her, when she caught him by the collar He drew bis pistol and said, “If you do no’ let me go I will blow your brains out.” She screamed, and Officer Jefferson caught Len nox as he was running away. As alreadydesaribed, when arraigned be fore Judge Dowling yesterday, Lennox be haved with the greatest indiffetence For some unexplained reason, Judge Dowling did not sustain the complaint of threat™8 ing to shoot, but limited the charge to one' of seduction. It soon became evident that hai‘!!S*feu committe 1 five years baljre<l by the statute of limitations, and was really out of the reach of the law! Ltennox was remanded, however, in order to to allow Miss Carroll time to procure a war rant in New Jersey. This was found Impos sible because of the case being outlawed, and when the case came up again in the after noon, an effort was made by the magistrate to induce Lennox to marry the girl James Carroll remained with the other sister In the examination room, while Judge Dowling brought Margaret Carrol and Lennox into his private office. Before they left the exam ination room, Margaret said: “i don’t want any support. I don't want him to live with me; all I wart is that he give his name to my child.” In a few minutes after Judge Dowling came out of the private room and said: “I have made the proposition and he re -fuses.” At these words James Carroll’s hand went rapidly to his breast and he half rose from bis chair. Justice Dowling noticed the move ment and exclaimed: “Have you got a pistol there?’’ Carroll made no reply, but turned toward the door through which Lennox was to re enter the room. Judge Dowling jumped over the table and took a loaded six-chambered revolver from Carroll. . “It is lucky you did it, sir, said Carroll, “for I would have shot him.” Lennox then entered the room, followed bv the unfortu nate girl, who was crying bitterly. James Carroll said: “Will you marry her ?—say yes or no. She does not want to live with you, does not want a penny from you, and you cau get a divorce after you marry her.” Lennox did not even turn his head, but re plied : “I want to know what legal grounds there are for my detention. I refuse to do i any sue:, thing.” , James Carroll became quite excited and exclaimed passionately: I hunted you for 1 three years and a half, not knowing you. I would have killed you here to-day, andl wii! tell you now that I will follow you to your » grave, and III shoot you like a dog ” i J^se Dowling, turning to Lem'10I) t,aid; You miserable wretch, I am compelled to * discharge you.” Lennox slunk out of the room, and jump ing Into a carriage, drove away. James Car roll went at once to Remington's store and bought a revolver and a box of cartridges, ouch was the denouement of a scene in the i Tombs yesterday. The threat ef the infaria , ted brother may some day be carried into ef fect, Scientific and Mechanical Po sibilities. Gas wells in various localities indicate that . immense deposits of coal oil and petroleum , exist in the e?rth, which may be at great depth; and New England may yet count it • among her treasures, and large and enduring deposits, which lew now dream of, be found. We may bum it for fuel as well as for illumin ation ; by its use steamboats may cross the ocean, and locomotives fly by its aid. We are just beginning to iearn the power of this new servant that man has awakened from the sleep of ages. The country also abounds in limestone, sandstone and bituminous shales, which by scientific and mechanical aid, may afford an almost never-ending supply of this wonderful material. And notwithstanding the seemingly ad vanced state of the means of transportation, it is inadequate to the present wants of man. Steamboats and railroads do not even meet the wants of our own country. New Eng land and the Middle States want Western and Southern products; and, dee versa, the West and South want Eastern products at cheaper rates. Can the possibility of aerial naviga v»vru uv uvuobv I » UtCJJ JC(U IO UllUgiU^ 119 nearer a practical solution of this great prob lem. If a light motive power is required science may yet discover a cheap method of separat ing aluminum from our clay, some ot which contains as much as thirty pounds of this most wonderful material to the ton. This metal is three times stronger than steel, and as light as chalk. On the very surface of the earth we daily walk over a material fh>m which the machinery for a motive power may be constructed of about one-tenth ‘he weight of iron or steel. In the oxygen of the at mosphere is abundant fuel which may be us ed to rarify tbc air for a motive power; other powers also exist in nature, which will, no doubt, yet become the servants of man.

Studying the Sprino Fashions.—The New York Times, after putting the momen tous question, “What will be worn this spring?” goes on, as if in a fit of gallantry, to say— We should like to sec one of those misera ble individuals, who are fond of sneering at the intellect of women, peruse a carefully pre pared description of ladies’ fashions, and en deavor to understand it. If he did not lav down tbo magazine or newspaper in a hum bler frame of mind than he took it up, all we could say about him would be that he was a man in regard to whom our contempt for his want ofBense was lost in admiration for the impregnability of his self-conceit. After much further deliberation on the subject, the editor comes to the conclusion that— As one of the great objects of mental train ing should be to give habits of close attention, patient thought and careful analysis, for the attainment of this, and also for the acquisi tion of what is, in some respects, no less im portant—a good degree of practice in the use of difficult words and technical phraseology— there are few kinds of study which afforcl so great advantages as that of the various alter ations, from season to season, in the fashions.
