Friday.—State vs. James Geary, Dennis Maho ney, James McLaughlin and John Driscoll. Re spondents were indicted for an alleged assault and battery on one James H. Lee, second mate of the steamer Montreal on the morning of the 31st of March last. The defendants w re all deck hands.— The mate’s s* ory was in brief that while the crew were unloading freight, Geary came to him in an in toxica ed condition ; nd stated he wanted more help on the after drop. I told him to gi along to work, that he was a drunken sot; he went off growling and swearing. Soon after I went forward, and was re pairing a broken case, which Mahoney had carelessly let fall and which I reprimanded him. Geary came in and said I bad accused him wrongfully of being drunk, and that I was a liar. I told him not to call me a liar, and gave him a push with my hand and he fell over the handles of his truck. He got up and came to vards me. I told him to keep away or I would knock liis head off with the hammer. Then Malioney grabbed me and McLaughlin struck at me and Geary pounced on. and they knocked me down, poundod and kicked me, and Geary chewed my hand up. McLaughlin held me down on deck and Maho ney s;ru k me cnee. After 1 got up I went down in to the wash-room to wash off the blood and Geary | and Mahoney followed me. Mahoney grabbed me an 1 hell me while Geary struck me three or four times in the face. Geary says Lee accuse 1 him wrongfully of be in/ drunk, and on Us telling him so, Lee struck him on the shoulder with the hammer and kuocked 1dm down; that he then got up ..nd Lee was spoiling for a fight as well as he; they then clinched and had a rough ami tumble fight, until Lee said he had enough; ho then let him up and be (Geary) went to trucking freight. One of the men told me I better go and j wash the blood from my face, and I went down to the wash-room, not knowing Lee was there; when I went in Leo says, (with an oath) I’ll fix you lor this; I asked him if he hadn’t got enough, and made a blow at liim; lie grabbed a shovel and I wrenched it away trom him and gave him a poke with the han dle. Mahoney didn’t touch him at this time. The testimony for the defence in regard to Malie ncy, was all to the effect that Mahoney did not touch Lee except to take the hammer from him after he •truck Geary, and to keep the crowd from interfering to separate the combatants. Driscoll denied being near the scene of the affray until it was all over. McLaughlin said lie was a witness to the fight but did uot take a hand. The jury returned a verdict as follows: Geary* guilty; Mahoney guilty of an assault only; Driscoll aud McLaughlin not guilty. Fox, Ass’t County Att’y. Hopkins for defendants. S’atc vs. Dennis O’Connor. Respondent indicted under the nuisance act for reniing a store on the comer of Summer and West Commercial streets to Patrick Sullivan, knowing that the same was to be used tjr the illeg il sale of intoxicating liquors. Respondent denies that be ever knew that Sullivan was engaged in such illegal traffic; he was informed at one lime by the sheriff that such was the fact, and commenced a process of forcible entry and detainer to recove possession, the sheriff promMog to furnish the necessary evidence of such illegal traffic, but the suit failed for want of evidence. Testimony and ar guments closed. Fox, Asst. Countv Att’y. Howard & Cleaves for defendant. In the case of Nelson L1 izhton, found guilty of an assault on police officer Miles, the defendant has filed exceptions and recognized in the sum of §530 for his appearance at the next term. The case of Jonathan Watson, indicted for arson, has lieen postponed until Tuesday morning next at ten o’clock. The first jury were excused until Tuesday morning at ten o’clock. Brief Jotting*.

The agent of tbo Philozoic Society is look ing after unmerciful teamsters. Supervising aichitect Mullet, Lieut. Mullet, X7. S. R.

The fountain commenced playing yesterday morning, and consequently last evening the reserved seate in the Park were all taken. At the “First Second Advent ohureh" Cush man’s Hall, 353J CongTess street, last eveniug, 'lrs. Tripp delivered a very plain discourse on the “Coming of the Lord,” from Revelations id chap., 3J verse. Another meeting will be held there this eveuing. Elders Tripp and Campbell are expected to be present. A Temperance meeting will be held at the Preble chapel to-morrow evening. Several persons will address the meeting. Business engagements will prevent Gen. Francis Fessend' n from accepting the invita tion to deliver the address at Biddeford on Me morial Day. Fifty thousand postal cards were sold in this city between Wednesday noon and Thursday night. The supply is exhausted. Mr J. L. Haydn has presented an elegant Wheeler & Wilson sewiug machine to the Hospital Fair. The President of the Common Council has been presented with a huge jack-knife, which looks like a bowie with a hinge in it. A little girl came running into the police station yesterday and said there was a man all broken out with the small pox asleep in the park. The man was found but the small pox ’ was not. He (the man) said he slept on the Promeuadc Thursday night, and purposed sleeping in the Park Friday night. He in timated that the starry canopy of Heaven was as g ood as a blanket. Nobedy believed him. The Hospital Concert. City Hall was packed by an enthusiastic au dience last evening on occasion of the benefit to the Maine General Hospital so generously and so gracefully tendered by Miss Annie Louise Cary. The time has passed by in Portland when it was necessary to criticise Miss Cary. With Portlanders, at least, she is above criti cism. We all know the magnificent voice, with its splendid volume and deep, rich tones; we all recognize the graceful, kindly presence, the cordial, unassuming yet noble air with which she sweeps upon the stage; we all eojoy tue unaffected gladness to see us which she manifests like a long absent child returned to the household. She places herself at once en rjcpport with her audience, and we are ready to laugh or weep with her, as her mood requires. This was particularly noticeable last evening in the “Many a Time and Oft,” which she sang with tears in her voice, and in the arch “Come in and Shut the Door.” She was received with the warmest demonstrations of applause, and repeatedly and rapturously encored. Miss Ada Cary’s voice possesses in kind that marvelous timbre characteristic of her sister s. The same rich tone, with its underlying strain of sweetness, the same compass and flexibility are apparent. Her voice markedly shows in its continuous improvement and in the develop ment of its capabilities the influence of careful study and culture. Her “Fatewell Kathleen” was exquisitely rendered and provoked warm applause, which culminated in an encore. This young singer surely has a brilliant future be fore her. The Beethoven Quintette sustained and add ed to the good opinions of it which were formed on its first visit. Better shading or more artis tic delivery has never been heard in this city. The objection which once obtained, that the members were, from lack of profes sional acquaintance, not always in perfect accord, is no longer tenable. The Clnb plays with nicety and finish, and the ease, grace and Apression is wonderful. Its artistic fidelity is worthy of all praise. The “Andante Concertante,” for violin and viola, by Messrs. Allen and Mullaly, was given with refined expression and sustained power, and the piccolo solo of Koppitz was exceedingly bril liant. The Traeumerci was simply magnifi cent. Of course the concert was interrupted by that relic of barbarism, that dilatory parody of the Norman curfew, the nine o’clock bell. Thanks to the generosity of Miss Cary, the noble charity for which she sang will realize a handsome sum from last evening’s entertain ment.

Attempt at Assassination.—Captain John son of the Portland steamer Pirigo had a mi raculous escape from assassination in New York, Thursday afternoon. He had just left bis vessel and was proceeding up the pier, on bis way up town, when a drnnken ’longshore, man named Richard Hurley placed a pistol to his head and fired. The ball entered the right temple and passed around beneath the scalp to the left side behind. He will recover. There was no reason for the attaek. Hurley was ar rested and committed.

Peep O’Dav.—Those who went to Music Hall last evening enjoyed a rich treat. The Boat Club demonstrated that they can act and talk as well as pull an oar. A good audience greeted their appearance in the stirring Irish drama of “Peep O’Day." J, O’Brien as the rillicking, true hearted friend of Harry ( B. C. Donahue) and lover of Kathleen (Miss A. Derly), gave some capital acting. Miss Mc Pherson, as Widow Mahone, performed her difficult part well, which is saying a great deal. Miss Dolan as Mary Grace, gave some fine 'act ing an 1 sang splendidly. Nor should Miss Derly (Kathleen) be passed by with a mere word. Her naturalness in acting added a charm to the play. Indeed this amateur troupe furnish to our citizens far better acting than many of the travelling troupes that visit us. Eight members of the Montgomery Guards, nndei command of Sergt. M. C. McCann, vol unteered their services. This evening the club will repeat the play for the benefit of the Hos pital Fair, and we doubt not tho house will be crowded. _ Entertainment for the Maine General Hospital at Frteburo.—A Fryeburg corres pondent writes that tho energetic ladies of Fryeburg held an entertainment Thursday eve ning in aid of the General Hospital, consisting of a sapper and concert. The supper was got up in good style. The conceit was par icipated in by Mesirs A. F. Lewis,D. B. Scwall, Jotham Sewall, Barnard Sawyer, Willie Ward, Miss Susie Souther, Miss Hattie Pike, Mrs. E. C. Farrington, Mrs. Eliza G. Furbish, Miss War rener and the Misses Warren. One of the pleasing features of the occasion was the in strumental music of M ss Jennie Taylor of Waterville. Dr. S. C. Gordon of Portland, be ing present, addressed the assembly on the general merits of the Hospital in a very able manner. Quite a handsome sum will resalt from this and other efforts in behalf of that noblecharity that interests all. A Bit of a Row.- Near the Custom House on Fore street, a bit of a row occurred last eve mug between a boy and a sailor. It appeared that the boy recently sailed on board a vessel, where the man was second mate, and was bad ly kicked about and abused by him. Meeting him last night be expressed in forcible language the views be entertained towards him, and made the crowd roar with laughter at bis hits. This was too much for the mate who clinched with the boy and tbr»w him down, kicking him badly. The plucky lad, nowise daunted, “went for” the man again, with brickbats and virtually got the victory, when the women dragged him off. Military.—A small detachment of men from the six militia companies in this city, met at Old City Hall last evening to drill for the parade on Memorial Day. CoL Mattocks in command. After a short drill they marched to the pavement in front of the City Hall where they did some good drilling. From their ap pearance last evening, we are assured thi t they will make a line appearance on Memorial Day. In the State muster they are sure to reflect great credit on this city. The great interest in military matters that has sprung up in our city of late, is not likely to grow less at pres ent, at least. Portland has every reason to be proud of her military companies.
