6. SHE BW &OBB OATOB Btlor foryh 8m(?11' in thB GuUdhal'tte lord !,, P111 yoarwas elected? The Lord 1 8tttte' were attired in black Court suits Si1 as were also the aldermen, those rhli Pn8Se? th? oIlair wearing their hoods and clia ms Conducted by the City Marshal, they then wanted in procession to St. Lawrence Church, each carrying a nosegay, previously presented by the hall-Keeper, in conformity with an old custom. The Communion service having been read, aud a sermon preaohed ty the Lord Mayor's chaplain, they returned to tke Guildhall and took their seats on the hustings. Araid cheers a notice was read to the effect that it had been decided to present to the Government a petition against so much of the Local Government Bill as proposes to take away from the Livery of London the right of electing the sheriffs of Middlesex. Sir T. Chambers (the Becorder), in informing the Livery of the object of their meeting, thought they might congratulate themselves that, notwithstanding recent legislation, they were assembled onoe more, in conformity with the unbroken custom of many centuries, for the purpose of selecting an alderman as chief officer for the year ensuing, and that the eleotion should be in order, the Lord Mayor and aldermen would leave the hall while it was proceeding. This having been done, the Common Serjeant read out the names of the aldermen eligible for the post, and one of the liverymen rose in the hall and urged upon whoever was elected to " carefully watch the rights and privileges of the Livery of London," Having regard to recent legislation, great vigilance was more than ever necessary. Alderman Whitehead and Alderman Sir Henry Isaacs promised in a few words to do so when elected ; and then, when the former name was put to the vote, there were cries of " All," and to the latter oame the good-humoured reply, " Next year." The announcement of the other names evoked the assurance that they would be eleoted " Later on," or " Next time." The result of the eleotion having been communicated to the Lord Mayor, he, with the sheriffs, returned to the Great Hall, where Aldorman Whitehead, amid cheers, was declared to be eleoted Lord Mayor for the ensuing year. In returning thanks, the Lord Mayor-elect said he could not expect to add to the reputation of the City of London during his tenure of office ; but, accepting the great responsibility, it would be his earnest endeavour to do such good work as would redound to the credit of the Corporation and justify the liverymen in the choice they had made. (Cheers.) Mr. Alderman Whitehead, of Highfield House, Catf ord Bridge, Kent, is the youngest son of the late Mr. James Whitehead, of Appleby, Westmoreland, and was born in laSl. Early in life he entered into what is known as the Bradford trade, coming to London iu W60. Continuing in the same business his success was very exceptional, and he retired iu 18S1. In 1SS2, on the death of Mr. Alderman Breffit, says the City Press, n requisition, signed by nearly all the electors of the Ward of Cheap, was presented to him, and he was returned without a contest. Iu lcS84-S5 he served the office of Sheriff of Loudon and Middlesex, r.nii for the past two years he has been chairman of the visiting justices of Holloway Prison. Heis a governor of Queen Anise's Bounty ; a past master of the Fan-makers' Company; one of her Majesty's lieutenants for the City of London ; a justice of the peace for Kent unit Westmoreland ; and a deputy-lieuteUant of the latter county. In 1835, and again in laSti, he was induced to contest, in the Liberal interest, the northern division of Westmoreland, his native county, but on both occasions he suffered defeat. EES G-OVE&IFESS AHB EKE 12A&BIEB S2A1T. At Dover, Alfred George Jones, an engineer, and a woman named Martha Calcraft, both of them married, were again severally charged at Dover with stealing mid receiving from Miss Bobina Anderson the sum of and a gold chain. Miss Anderson was a governess out of a situation, . and she went to reside with Mr. and Mrs. Jones. She withdrew JZT2 from the Post-office Savings Bank with the object of taking a business. Jones abstracted from her room a bag containing jb'',) in gold and notes, and a few days after he disappeared from Dover. The female prisoner appears to have accompanied him, and when arrested she had some of the notes upon her, which she admitted he gave her. She was also wearing the chain. Jones alleged that Miss Anderson withdrew the money with tiie object of eloping with him, and gave it to him tor that purpose. Arrangements were made for the elopement, but he did not go, and he supposed, because he ban not eloped with her, she was venting her spite on him. The prosecutrix was cross-examined at great length by the solicitor who represented Mrs. Calcraft.' She admittm! that she had walked out with Mr. Jones aione, and had been on very intimate terms with him. He had kissed her when he said " Good-bye." When she went to live at bis house both he and his wife used to kiss her when she said " Good night." On one occasion he gave her a wedding-ring and keeper, and said, " We will elope," to which she replied, " Indeed we will not." She did not tell Mrs. Jones about the proposition. She did not sell the rings till Jones had left his home. Both prisoners were committed for trial. CASS. On Thursday morning, Mr. A. Braxton Hicks resumed his inquiry, at the Wandsworth Town Hall, iuto the circumstances attending the death of Isaac Arnold, aged six months, who died at Graveney-road, ! Tooting, on August 26. This was the case in which it i was alleged that Mrs. Tane Arnold, of Buckingham-street, Wolverton. had been carrying on a system of trullickiijs in infants by means of advertisements. The .Cfro haa been adjourned for the purpose inter alia of giving the Government analyst an opportunity of analyzing the contents of the child's stomach, the viscera, &c. Mary Ann Saunders, wife of a cabman, of Alfred cottages, York-roau, Richmond, said she had known Mrs. Arnold about four and a-half years. Witness had allowed her to have answers to advertisements seut to her house, and she would forward them to Mrs. Arnold, who supplied her with plenty of addressed envelopes. Sometimes she would get a dozen letters in reply to one advertisement. On one occasion Mrs. Arnold gave her a sovereign for receiving letters for her. Mrs. Arnold was now recalled, and in reply to the coroner, said she first received a letter from Mrs. Bailey, the supposed mother of the deceased, ubout a week previous to August 22. She met her at Euston, on the 22nd, in the waiting-room. When witness received tho baby, Mrs. Bailey paid her 30 in notes. (On the last occasion she swore that she had not received any money with the child.) She had no idea what had become o Mrs. Bailey. In September, 188i, witness placed a female child, three months old, out to nurse with a Mrs. Carter at 5s. a week, saying that it was her mother's. Witness had previously left a child named Constance Hill with Mrs. Carter, who lives at Middleton Cheney. Witness had two boys and a girl living with her, atid thpy thought that she was their mother. She refused to say to whom the children belonged. She also knew tt Mrs. Meredith, to whom she had entrusted a child named Ernest William Arnold. She had not seen that child for two years, but she did not know that Mrs. Meredith had had a month, and that she was an old woman and exceedingly poor. In February last, when v.ituess was confined, a Mrs. Dawson brought her a baby, which she was unable to take, so her nurse took it. She did not know that a woman named Hayes, to whom sl'.e had entrusted the care of a child, was undergoing two years' hard labour. The Coroner : Well, it is so, and yet you say that you know that all the children vere well cared for. Witness : I thiuk it is a great shame. The Coroner : So do I. In reply to further questions, witness admitted that she had sent two children to a Mrs. Lawrence, at Ureat Yarmouth. She received a premium of ,10 with the boy and Xo with tho girl. She gave Mr. Lawrence the whole of the .15. She would not say 6he was a philanthropist, but she had done a deal of good. Tho child which she had at Mrs. Saunders's at Richmond was now at Ashford. She refused to say what premium she received with the child or who the mother was. The Coroner read a letter written by Mrs. Arnold to Mr. Lawrence on August 15, in which sho referred to " the old lady." Witness refused to say who Bhe pieant by " the old lady," sayiug that she did not mind if the corouer sent her to Wandsworth Prison " now it had come to this," At a iater stage of the proceedings Mrs. Arnold laughed while the remainder of the letter alluded to was benig read, and the coroner told her that she ought to be ashamed of herself. The case was again adjourned. A Curate Befusikg to Officiate. At a vestry meeting at St. Sepulchre's, Holborn, a letter was read from the liiBhop of Loudon, stating that the curate-in-charge (Mr. Kennedy Bell) wus wroug in refusing to officiate on Sunday morning last, but that his claim was valid to say who should or should not sing in the choir. The parishioners resolved to request the vicar to ask for the curate's resignation, and to appeal to tho bishop to investigate the dispute which had led to the dismissal of the congregation without the holding of service. Tiie Wokking Men's College, The Working Men's College, Great Orraoud-street, Bloomsbury, founded by the late Kev. F. D.. Maurice, will reopen for its thirty-fifth session to-morrow. The classes announced include, as usual, nil the subjects which may be regarded as necessary for liberal education, and at a price which places them within the reach of the poorest working man. The free popular lectures on Saturday evenings have, for some years past, formed one of the features of this institution. Among those included in the list are Mr. GilUes (the hend-master of Dulwich), ou "Hamlet," aud Mr. St. George Mivart, on " Knowing and Doing." Mr. Napier Higgius, Q.C., is also amongst the lecturers. Tebrible Scene in a Menagerie. An exciting scene was witnessed at New Brighton Palace, Cheshire, where, in addition to other attractions, Mr. Cross's menagerie is on view, and whero Madame Tekero goes through a performance in the lions' den. In connection with this lions' den is a small empty cage, by which the lions' don is approached by Madame Telzero. This cage was not in its place on Saturday, and the lion queen necessarily had to enter by the main door of the den. No sooner was this opened than out dashed a lion, to the dismay of the audience, who were scattered in all directious. The lion, iu tho meantime, rushed into a corner, doubtless as much astonished -at his freedom from bolts and bars as the audience at his intrusion in their midst. Meanwhile the keepers secured an empty cage, and the king of the forest was again placed in captivity. Wouking Men as Magistrates. Mr. Burt having written a letter supporting the prayer of the memorial to the Lord Chancellor that several working men should be appointed justices of the peace oh the first commission for West Bromwich, a Birmingham paper commented adversely upon the letter. Mr. Burt has in consequence addressed another communication to Mr. Graham Spencer, in which he says : V I never either said or thought that a working man, simply because ho happens to be a working man, has a right to sit in judgment upon his fellows. 1 was merely protesting against class exclusion iroin the magistracy, and contending that persons should be selected for otter reusons than because df their wealth or their L!w! 1 Councillor Pi" of West Bromwich, letter from the Lord Chancellor on Tuesday stating that any names submitted from any quarter will be considered bat that as the responsibility for selection of magistrates is by law oast upon him, he cannot undertake to adopt any selection which may be made by others. TEBBIBXiS DISASTERS AX SEA. GBEAT LOSS OF LIFE. About five o'clock in the morning three Transatlantic steamers, the Spanish Habana, from Cuba; the Italian Sud Amerioa, from Buenos Ayres and Monte Video ; and the French La France, from Mar-seilles, were observed making their way towards the harbour of Luz, close to Las Palmas, near the Canary Islands. The Habana remained behind in order to give way to the other two vessels, whilst these continued to advance at a rapid pace, the Sud America having her bows pointed straight to the harbour, and La France advancing at a right angle to the line of the Sud America. The sea was as calm as a pond, and the sun was beginning to rise in a cloudless sky. Although the danger was apparent, La France did not change her course. Her captain evidently miscalculated the distance, and La France ran into the Sud America amidships. The 260 passengers on board the Sud America were jerked out of their berths, and, meagrely olad, they rushed to the deck, blocking the stairs and passages. Their cries of terror were mingled with the shrill noise of the alarm whistle. Several small boats which happened to be near hastened to the rescue. La Franco, as soon as she had disengaged herself, held aloof, but the Habana sent all her boats and officers. Tbe panic-stricken passengers, apprehensive lest tho vessel should suddenly sink, commenced to jump into the water, trusting to be picked up by the boats. Those who had children with them threw them into the Bea, jumping after them, and picking them up half drowned in many cases. Many people were injured through leaping into the water awkwardly, and thereby coming in violent contact with the sides of the ship or with the boats. The masts and rigging of the sinking vessel were covered with people, who, not knowing how to swim, hoped to be taken off by boats. Within five minutes of the collision the Sud America sank, drawing down with her a number of passengers who were still on deck. Others were surprised by the water in the passages and cabins under the deck, and there perished. The water at the scene of the collision was not sufficiently deep to entirely cover the masts, which may still be seen. The population of Las Palmas hurried bodily to La Luz, to succour the survivors and to look after the dead. The road between the two plaoes was thronged with a procession of horses, carts, and pedestrians, carrying clothes, food, wine, blankets, and simple medicines. Poor workmen were seeu to take off their coats and give them to half -naked sufferers. Some of the children saved from the wreck had lost their parents. They were taken to different houses, and have since found foster parents at Las Palmas. Among the rescued children is one only a few months old. Out of one family of eight only a man and a baby were saved. On most of the corpses recovered considerable amounts of money in cash or in drafts were found. On one of them ,600 in gold was discovered. All the victims were Italians, and were mostly emigrants returning from South America. Some of the dead have now been identified. The Cunard steamer Adriatic, which arrived at Queenstown yesterday from New York, brings intelligence of the Joss of the Clyde-built steamer Ward, with all hands, thirteen in number, during the recent Cuban hurricane on Sept. 6, when on a voyage from Utilla to New Orleans. A telegram, received at Dover yesterday morning, states that the Osstend mail packet Prince Baudoin, which left Dover on Friday night, ran into a fishing boat off Ostend, The fishing boat sank with three of her crew. ISEBIBIiS BOIT.EB BXPOKIOH.' LOSS OF THKEE LIVES. Yesterday morning, a terrible boiler explosion occurred in Birmingham at the mills of Messrs. Watson, Todd, and Co., Vincent-strcot. Four large boilers were situated in the basement of tbe building, and about half-past ten one of them burst with terrific force. A considerable portion of the building was completely demolished, and the remaining three boilers were destroyed. The falling dtfbris was thrown some distance round, inflicting injuries on many people. Three men Harrison, Jones, and Middleton in the engine-house were killed instantly, one's head being completely blown away. Three other men in an adjoining room were also injured, and are not expected to live. One man's ear was blown away, aud several others were severely scalded. HEAVY SENTEUCa TOIS INTIS&IBATIOliT. At Templemore, Tipperary, yesterday, a labourer, named Nolan, was sentenced by a Crimes Act court to three months' imprisonment with hard labour for intimidation, by calling a police-constable named Gavin a Mitchelstown murderer. Gavin was on furlough with his friends at Templemore, and in September last he was stationed at Cork, and was amongst a body of police who were drafted into Mitchelstown on the 9th of that month. He was sworn to as one of the police who fired from Mitchelstown Barracks on that day. There was much bitter feeling manifested towards him in Templemore, and it is stated that some of his relatives have been expelled from the local branch of the National League for associating with him. The offence of Nolan consisted in his mounting the chapel wall last Sunday, as Gavin was leaving mass, and shoutiug to the people that they had a " Mitchelstown murderer " amongst them. Much excitement was thereby caused, and a number of police had to protect Gavin. WHISTMNG I?OS SHE POLIOS. At Portsmouth Police-court, a youth of IS, named Joseph Woods, the son of a licensed victualler, was placed in the dock on a charge of indecently assaulting Eleanor Candey, a single woman. Prosecutrix stated that she was in Commercial-road shortly after midnight on Tuesday, when she met the prisoner and another man, who accosted her. Prisoner approached her in a very rough manner, and seized her by the waist and the throat, breaking her necklace. He then threw her to the ground and assaulted her. She remonstrated with him, anil he thereupon produced a clasp knife, exclaiming, "Look at this. I'll put it right through you !" She said, " Are you one of the Wbiteohapel men?" and he replied, ,;Ye9, I am." Witness then blew a whistle for the police, and a constable took prisoner's name and address. She had carried a whistle for protection ever since the White-chapel murders, but she had never used it before this. The clerk : You never carry it with you in the daytime, I suppose P Witness : No, sir. Clerk : Only at nigitt ; Witness : Tes. Police-sergeant Brading said that he heard the whistle blown, and, seeing the prisoner and the woman near the waterworks office, asked what was the matter. The woman accused prisoner of having assaulted her, and said that he was the Whitechapel murderer, and had threatened her with an open knife. Finding that he had a knife, witness asked him to accompany him to the police-station, where his name and address were taken. On the way prisoner said, "That woman is drunk. I did tell her I was the Whitechapel murderer, but I did not touch her." The clerk : You have no reason to suppose that ho is the Whitechapel murderer? Witness : No, sir. (Laughter.) The clerk: Was he sober? Witness: No, ho was drunk ; but the woman was quite sober. Addressing the bench for the defence, Mr. King, solicitor, submitted that the prosecutrix first accosted prisoner, and while they were conversing she mentioned that since the murders she had carried u whistle. He then said, "And I always carry a knife. If you want to know who I am, I am the Whitechapel murderer," whereupon she called the police and alleged that he had ill-treated her. He maintained that there was no foundation for the charge, which was entirely without corroboration. The magistrates dismissed the charge of assault, but bound tho defendant over in the sum of dS10 to keep the peace, ordering him to find a surety for a like amount. THE AT2?SSSFT TO SHOOS A WOMAN AH BAESEI. Emma Hevendehl, tho young German who applied to the Barnet magistrates some time ago for a summons against Francis J. West, of 3, Grove-side, Lytton-road, New Barnet, was again before the bench (the Earl of Strafford presiding), when her application was renewed by Mr, D. Blelloch (solicitor). Mr. Blelloch said the applicant stated on tho previous occasion that Mr. West had fired five shots at her with a revolver, and the court adjourned the further consideration of her application for a summons against him in order that the police might make inquiries. As the applicant spoke English imperfectly she was unable to present the facts with duo force, but ho was now instructed to say that so great was the terror caused by the discharge of the weapon, that a female friend of Miss Hevendehl's who was with her at the time of the occurrence fainted with fright. The mere act of discharging a firearm in a public thoroughfare was a serious offence, but, according to his instructions, the man West was an absolutely dangerous fellow to possess a revolver, having already served eight years' imprisonment for shooting his first wife. However, he (Mr. Blellochj believed the police-inspector had something to say to the bench which would probably render it unnecessary to proceed with the application for a summons at present. Inspector Sheaf, stationed at East Barnet, said that at a few minutes past nine that morning he received information that a man had attempted to commit suicide at the Eailway Hotel, New Barnet. Ho proceeded to the house, and found that the man waB Mr. West, who was the subject of Mr. Blelloeh's application to the bench. He was lying in bed in an unconscious condition, having his throat cut from ear to ear with a razor. He was informed that a medical gentleman had been in attendance, and had stanched the flow of blood. His lordship said the application must stand over for a week. Inspector Sheaf : It will be much longer than that, my lord, before the man can attend the court, even if he attends at all. I consider the injury extremely serious, The matter was allowed to Btand over peuding the result of Mr. West's attempt on his life. BOMBA BAMTOTJB ON " AMATETJB POLITICIANS." Iteplying, through his secretary, to a correspondent who had called his attention to a recently-published version of the Woodford evictions, Mr. Balfour observes that, in every one of the cases referred to, the tenants refused to pay, not by reason of their poverty, or because the rents were excessive, but in consequence of the intrigues of agitators, "who intimidate their victims in order to provide scenes for amateur politicians from England." Me. Gladstone and tee Fabthing Post-Card. Mr. Gladstone has sent the following reply to a letter from the Farthing Post-Card Company: "Hawarden Castle, Sept. 21, 1SSS. Sir, I shall watch your experiment with interest, and I shall be glad if it operate as a .corrective of the extravagant price now charged to the Government for post-cards, since in that case it must extend the consumption, and thus enlarge the revenue. I should be glad to have a few specimens. Your faithful and obedient, W. E. Gladstone." The Earnings of Street Singees Three able-bodied men named Wilson, a labourer : Roberts, a brush-maker ; aud Tilley, alias Jones, a potter, all living at a common lodgiug-house, were charged before the Birmingham stipendiary magistrate with begging. A police-sergeant saw them singing, and after watching them for some time decided to arrest them. As soon as they caught sight of the officer they ceased operations. Wilson had 6s. 2d., Roberts 7s. 7d., and Tilley 10s. 5d. Witness remarked, " You appear to have been doing pretty good business." " Not such a deal," replied Tilley, " considering we have been out three hours " Prisoners were told that they would not be permitted to go about the streets in such a manner. Unless they gained a livelihood in a proper manner they had better leave the district as expeditiously ns possible. They were each fined 5s., aha the money was Paid. B1YN0EDSS OTWBPAPEB, STJISTDAY, B1FFEMB1E 80, 1888. TEE aTERTCOT SEDUCES IN THE WITNESS-BOX. At the Wandsworth Police-court, James. Young, a house painter, surrendered to his bail to answer tho charge of Bhooting Edgar Woollcy, an assistant to his brother,' a draper, of High-street, Merton, with intent to murder him. It will be remembered that on the last occasion tho prosecutor failed to attend the court, and on the application of Detective-inspector Shaw a subpoena was granted to compel his attendance, Mr. Keith Frith now appeared to prosecute, and Mr. Come Grant, instructed by Mr. W. A. Coliyer, represented the acouaed. The prosecutor, who walked lame, waB allowed to be seated while giving his evidence. Mr. Keith Frith said a certain amount of sympathy might be felt for the accused, but he had been guilty of a fSr'ous offence iu taking the law into his own hands. The conipluiuant was then called. He stated that on September 1st the accused called on him and inquired if his name was Edgar AVoolley. He replied, "Yes." The prisoner then said, "You know the condition of my daughter, do you intend to marry her?" He answered, " I can't." The accused repeated the question, and the witness answered again, " I can't." He then said, " You have not married the other girl, as I have been there to see." The witness did not remember making any answer to this. The accused asked him a third time if he was going to marry his daughter, and he answered, "No." The witness then saw a revolver pointed in his face. He felt something strike him on the tie aud pass over his shoulder. He ran up-stairs, and when about half-way up he heard a second report, and the bullet struck him in the left thigh. The witness cried out, " That has got me," and subsequently he was removed to Guy's Hospital. Mr. Corrie Grant: Did the accused tell you that you had ruined his daughter? The witness: I think something of the kind was said. I said I was sorry for the condition in which she was in. Mr. Grant : When the accused said you had ruined his daughter, did you say "Yes?" The witness: I don't recollect what I said. Mr. Corrie Grant: Did you seduce Miss Grace Young? Witness: I don't know what you mean. Mr. Corrie Grant: What? . Mr. Curtis Bennett: How old are you? Witness: Thirty. Mr. Corrie Grant : Did you or did you not seduce Grace Young? Witness : Explain what you mean. If you ask me straight, I'll answer you. Mr. Corrie Grant said he wouid not press the question, Mr. Keith Frith said the question should be put in a manner which could be understood. Mr. Curtis Bennett remarked that a man of thirty ought to understand what counsel meant. In answer to a further question by Mr. Corrie Grant, witness said he was engaged to a young lady who was also in the same condit ion as Miss 'Young. Mr. Corrie Grant : Did you seduce her p Witness : I suppose so, if I understand what you mean. (Sensation.) After some further evidence, the prisoner was again remanded on bail.

The complaiuaut deposed that for fourteen months sho had occupied a top back room at Addison's house at 2s. a week. Early in the present month she received a notice from Mr. Strutt not to pay rent to the landlord, but to him. She paid her rent to the agent for two weeks. She was told that Addison hacl not any property to distrain upon. On the 21sfc inst. the distress was put in during her absence. She read the letter from Mr. Strutt to the defendant, who made no demand for the rent. On the 21st, when she returned home she found her bed gone. She called to the defendant, but he refused to appear. The distress was put in for 4s. Her bed, blankets, and pillows, worth ,3, were taken away. Sho was told that a distress would be levied upon her goods if she did not pay the rent to Mr. Strutt. The defendant put in the agreement between him and Mr. Strutt. He Baid he owed rent, but he was paying it ou account. Mr. Paget observed that the payment of rent to Mr. Strutt was a good discharge to the complainant. In the case against the broker, the complainant's sister, Kato Nichols, was called. ' She said she was lying on the bed when the defendant forced the door open. She was pulled off the bed. On asking for an explanation, she was told by the defendant, " That is enough for you. I know your character." He collected the blankets together, and took them out of the room. She asked him to wait until her sister returned. He said he could not wait in the room with her. Cross-examined: A fair man pulled her off the bed. The defendant did not show any authority. He wrote something after the goods were taken away.

It was alleged that she was sitting in an easy chair ; but the complainant said there was not an easy chair in the room. Mr. Paget, in giving his decision, said there was clearly an illegal distress, and an order would be made for the restoration of the goods. He inquired where the articles were deposited. Tho defendant replied at Woodfield-crescent, Harrow. Mr. Paget then adjourned the summonses for the goods to be restored. THE KNIFE 1ST WHITECHAPETi. Charles Ludwig, a decently-attired German, who professed not to understand English, and gave an address in the Minories, was brought up on remand charged, at the Thames Police-court, with being drunk aud threatening to Btab Alexander Finlay, of 51, Lenian-street, Whitechapel. The evidence of prosecutor showed that at three o'clock in the morning he was standing at a coffee-Btall in the Whitechapel-road, when Ludwig came up in a state of intoxication. The person in charge of the stall refused to serve him. Ludwig turned upon witness, and, pulling out a large-bladed knife, threatened to stab him with it. A constable came up, and the man was then given iuto custody. Constable 221 H deposed that he arrested the accused. On the way to the station, prisoner dropped a long-bladed knife, which was open, and when he was searched, a razor and a long-bladed pair of scissors were found on him. Constable John Johnson, S66. of the City police, deposed that he was on duty in the Minories, when he heard loud screams of "Murder" proceeding from a dark court. The court in question leads to some railway arches, and is well known as a dangerous locality. Witness went down the court, and found the prisoner with a woman. The accused appeared to be under the influence of drink. Witness asked what he was doing there, and he replied " Nothing." - The female, who appeared to be very agitated and frightened, said, "Oh, policeman, do take me out of this." She was so frightened that she could give no further explanation. Witness got her and the accused out of tho court, and, having sent the latter off, walked with the woman to the end of his beat, when she said, "Dear me! he frightened mo very much when he pulled a big knife out." Witness asked her, "Why didn't you tell me that at the time ?" and she replied, " I was too much frightened." He then went to look for the prisoner, but could not find him, and therefore warned several other constables. On tho last occasion witness was unable to procure the attendance of the woman. On the application of Detective-Inspector Abberline, of Scotland-yard, Mr. Saunders again remanded the accused for full inquiries to be made. He also allowed Inspector Abberline to interview Ludwig with the interpreter, Mr. Smaje, to ascertain if he would give any information as to where he was on certain dates. The woman Ludwig was alleged to have attempted to stab has been found. She is well known to the police. Adam Sherrif, 39, was charged with being drunk and threatening to stab Margaret Welsh. Prosecutrix was unable to attend owing to the state of her health. Jane Charles, twelve years of age, living at 82, Lambeth-street, Whitechapel, said that on Monday afternoon prisoner, who lived in the same house, came home and had a row with his wife. Afterwards, in a public-house, he went to hit his wife with a glass and a pot. Mrs. Welsh was there, and the accused, who was drunk, drew a knife to her. He called her names, and said, " I'll cut you with this knife." Constable 355 H deposed that when he arrested Sherrif he said, " If I get six months, I'll rip her up when I come out." He made an attempt to get at her when witness had hold of him. Mr. Saunders remanded him. Sir Charles Dilke. At a meeting held at the Queen's-park Liberal Club, it was resolved to ask Sir Charles Dilke, Bart., to come forward as a candidate for Chelsea on the new London County Council. Wife Murder. George Nicholson, baker, Sutherland-street, Aston, Birmingham, murdered his wife the other night by smashing her skull with a hatchet. They had a quarrel over money matters, and the man, in a fit of fury, picked up the hatchet and struck the woman a blow which laid her head open, leaving the brain protruding.

The accused was found in four feet of water screaming loudly. Since the occurrence she had been an inmate of the hospital. Tho husband of the accused attended the court and said his wife had complained of pains in her head latterly.

TEE POLICE COTJBTS. The Chap.3e of si:e.iou TiiKOwroa. William Martin, aged 46, a gentleman described as of no occupation, living at Hoilowny-rnad, was again placed he-tore Mr. Cooke, charged with unlawfully and wilfully throwing a quantity of corrosive fluid viz., sulphuric acid with intent to cause bodily harm to Winifred Brown, a lady governess, residing at Ansou-road, Tufnell-park ; also damaging her silk dress to the amount of 3 3s. Mr. Geoghegan, barrister, defended. The case has boen reported. Mr. Geoghegan, in answer to a question by Miss Brown aa to how she should obtain redress for the loss she had sustained, said he wished to apologize on behalf of his client to Miss Brown, and to say that, under the circumstances, she would not be put to the trouble of civil proceedings to recover redress, as she had but to send her claim to Messrs. Hoddinott and Davis, the solicitors instructing him for the defence, and it would be immediately discharged. Mr. Cooke said he could not allow that to be stated in this court this was a criminal proceeding. Inspector Miller, Y division, said this completed tho present case. There was, however, a lady iu attendance who would say she had had her dress damaged in a similar way. Florence Smith, residing at 23, Pemberton-gardeus, St. John's-park, Highgate, said she left home to go to St. John's Church three weeks ago last Sunday. As she left tho church, she saw the prisoner immediately outside. She noticed nothing particular at the time, but during the following week she was going to put on the same dress, when she found it utterly destroyed down the buck, having been burnt into holes. Her sister's dress was also burut. Mr. Cooke said this was essentially a case for a jury. The answer to the charge was a feasible one, and might possibly satisfy a jury. Mr. Cooke then formally committed the prisoner for trial at the next Central Criminal Court, and accepted bail. A Warning to Bakers. Alfred ttoggis, in the employ of Messrs. Hawea Brothers, bakers, of 86, Warden-road, Kentish-town, and Jane Ward, baker, of 27, Welleslcy-road, Koutish-town, were summoned by Richard Beeson'f or, on the 17th of September, selling bread otherwise than by weight. Mr. Freke Palmer, solicitor, was for the complainant. The evidence was that persons went to the defendants' shops, and asked for half-quartern loaves. The defendants supplied the bread, but did not weigh it. They were asked to weigh the loaves, and they refused, saying they did not do so. The persons then left the shops, ana, meeting Beeson, they returned with him, and although he gave the defendants the opportunity of weighing the loaves, they still remsed to do so. On being weighed, the loaves were each 2oz. short. The defence in Boggis's case was that the purchaser was out of the shop ten m'inutes before the loaf was brought back, and it was impossible to know whether it was the same loaf aa had been sold. There was " make weight " ou the counter. Mrs. Ward said she sold by the loaf, and not by weight. Mr. Cooke remarked that it was idle in the defendant Boggis's case to try and suggest that another loaf had been brought back by the purchaser. He fined Boggis 40s., with 23s. costs, and Ward 20s., with 23s. costs, for not selling by weight. BOUTEvTAKE. Scandalous Immorality in South-ware:. Eliza Serivm, a middle-aged woman, was charged, on a warrant, with acting in the management of a disorderly house, Kell-street, Earl-street, London-road. Mr. Frederick Kent, solicitor, stated that ho was in-atructed to prosecute the prisoner for the offence named in the warrant on behalf of a number of inhabitants of the parish of St. George-the-Murtyr, Southwark, who, finding the vestry were very supine in putting down the scandalous immorality in certain portions of the parish, had banded themselves together in the hope of bringing about a better state of things, and they were, fortunately, able to proceed under the Act of George HI. at that court. The present case was, perhaps, as bad a one aa could be brought there. Evidence having been given to prove the character of the house, Inspector Marriot said he arrested the prisouer outside the house, but she denied being the occupier. He entered the place, aud found a number of men and women there. It was in a most filthy condition, and was not used as a residence. M'Queeu aud Neal gave evidence as to the character of the frequenters of the place, and to the fact that the prisoner received money from the persons entering the place. The prisoner declared that although she had visited at the house, she had nothing whatever to do with the manae'einent of it in any way. Mr. Slade committed her for trial at the next Surrey Sessions. I.AHBETH. CuRrous Charge of Assault. Mizabeth Bol-terrid, 33, living in Cross-street, Old Kent-road, was charged with assaulting her step-daughter, aged nine, by Bhutting her in a box, whereby her life was endangered. A woman named Smithers, living in the same house, stated that sho heard a knocking in the room rented by the prisoner. As this continued for some time, she went to the room, and not seeing the child, called out, " Alice," aud she called out, " I'm in the box." Witness found a box in the room turned over on the lid side, and on the top piled a lot of clothing and lumber. Tho child was evidently unable to get out. As soon as possible the child was released. The prisoner was found drinking in a public-house close by. Another witness said that when he got the child out she could scarcely Btand, and was faint and partly exhausted. She was also perspiring very much. The child, in answer to questions, said she got into the box, which was without a lid, in order to hide from her mother, and her mother turned the box over on her. The prisoner declared that the child must have put the box over herself, but could not explain how the clothea and lumber got on top. Mr. Birou remanded the prisoner. WAHDSWOETH. Serious Charge against a Solicitor. Mr. William Herriiiijton, a solicitor, practising in Wandsworth, was brought up on a warrant, granted by the magistrate in the morning, for obtaining money from Robert William Gooden, of The Cedars, Putney, by false representations. Mr. Halle, the clerk, read the information on which the warrant was granted, from which it appeared that in May last Mr. Gooden instructed the accused to take proceedings for him at the county court against five persons for debt. He looked at the papers, and said he would take the proceedings, and that he (Gooden) would have to pay him 23s. for county court fees. Gooden paid tho money, and a fortnight afterwards the accused told him that all the snmmonses had been taken out except one, and he should require 5s. more in that case, as the man lived in the East-end of London. Gooden paid him tho extra money, and was subsequently told by Her-rington that all the summonses were taken out, four of which would be heard on the 10th of July. Gooden afterwards inquired, and found that none of the summonses had been issued. In defence, tho prisoner said the information was utterly untruo, aa Mr. Gooden was aware that the summonses had not been taken out. An accusation of this kind must have a serious effect upon a professional man. Mr. Chance : In some cases. You have not explained why you did not take out the summonses. The prisoner : I told him that I had not taken out my annual practising certificate, which I now hold. Mr. Chance : Then you made an additional false pretence iu that case, by representing that you were a solicitor when you were not. ' It seems that this is not the first complaint that has been made about you. The prisoner hoped that the person who informed the magistrate of the matter also told him the result of the recent prosecution. Police-constable Horwood, one of the warrant officers of the court, having proved the arrest, Mr. Chance remanded the prisoner for Mr. Goodon's attendance ; and on the following day the case was dismissed. HAMMERSMITH. Fracas in a Railway Carriage. Henry Bur-quest, a seaman, was brought before Mr. De Rutzen, charged with wounding Joseph Coweu by stabbing him in the head with a knife. The complainant, whose head was bandaged, deposed that he lived at Belfast. He was in a carriage of a train which left Euaton on his way to Liverpool, and when between Euston aud Willesden he received two stabs in tho head. The prisoner was in the same carriage, aud caught him by the throat, and felled him to the floor. He then drew a knife and stabbed him twice in the head. Mr. De Rutzen inquired of the complainant if he knew the prisoner before the occurrence. Tho complainant said he had been in the same ship with him. The witness was sober. The prisoner said the complainant struck him first. The complainant was a soldier and a stowaway in Calcutta. Sergeant Hayes, of the company's police, said ho was on duty at Euston Station and saw several sailors, some the worse for drink. He travelled in the same train with them, and at Willesden he saw complainant on the platform streaming with blood, and in a fainting condition. After the train was despatched he took him to a doctor who dreased the wounds. Wrhen he recovered he told the witness what had happened. The witness telegraphed to Rugby, where the prisoner was detained on the arrival of the train. The prisoner denied using a knife, and Baid the complainant gave him provocation, and ho gave him a dressing down with his fist." Sergeant Hayes said there was no doubt that the complainant was a deserter from the Indian army, and had not any money, his fare to Liverpool being contributed by the sailors. Mr, De Rutzen committed the prisoner for trial. After the commitment, and just before the magistrate left the bench, the prisoner was brought from the cells and again placed in the dock. His statement, which had been omitted, was then taken, and after it vvas read over Mr. De Rutzen said he did not think a jury would convict on the uncorroborated evidence of a drunken man, and ordered him to be discharged. GB2EWWICH. A Police-constable Charged with Bigamy, John W. Buckingham, 32, a police-constable of the R division, of 29, Christchurch-street, East Greenwich, was charced with feloniously intermarrying with Elizabeth Soustcr Bailey, waitress, of 8, Westbourne-buildings, Bayswater-road, at the registry office, Pad-dington, on February last, his wife, Mary Elizabeth Buckingham, of 41), Eaton-place, Belgrave-square, being then and now alive. Mr. Scard appeared to prosecute, and Mr. Pook for the defence. Sarah Mary Chipporfield, of 9, Suffolk-street, Poplar, wife of Edward Chipperfield, said she was present at St. Thomas's Church, Stepney, .on November 19, 1878, when the prisoner was married to her sister, Mary Elizabeth Weninan, who was still alive. Elizabeth Souster Bailey said that cn February 23 last she went through the ceremony of marriage with the prisoner at the Paddington registry office. In cross-examination, witness said she was told the prisoner was a married man before she married him. She had had an interview with the wife before the marriage. Superintendent Hamlyn, B division, told her before the marriage that the pusoner Was entered on the books as a married man A certificate was produced by the first wife in the name of Wm. James Buckingham, who was supposed to be the prisoner's twin brother. The prisoner told her he was not the man who was married to the other woman, but that it was his twin brother, and that the latter was in America. He said he joined the police force single, but represented himself as married because he did not want to live in the section-house. Mr. Fenwick remanded the prisoner, agreeing to take bail. WOOLWICH. Setting Fire to a Woman. John Knight, 35, was charged with endangering the life of Jane Smith. The complainant a poor woman, living in Woolwich, said that she was in the Leather Bottle public-house at Abbey-wood, and got into conversation with the prisoner and some other persons who were drinking there. Suddenly she found her dreaa in fiamea, but it was immediately extinguished, and, except for the damage done to her clothes, she was none the worse. As Knight was a working man, she did not wish to hart him, aud would not press the charge. Mr. Fenwick: Let me hear a witness. Sam Passiful, a boy of ten years, said he saw the prisoner stand behind the woman, pin a piece of paper to her gown, aud light it with a hmteh. She was standing up at the time, talking to another customer. Prisoner : I own that I fastened the paper to her dress, but I did not set light to it. I walked out before that was done, but I believe it waa only a lark. No one wanted to hurt the woman. Constable Robinson, who arrested the defendant, deposed that he waa slightly under the influence of drink. Robert Cream, manager of tho Leather Bottlo Tavern, said he noticed nothing of the parties until he saw the woman's clothes on firo, and asaiated to extinguish them. The prisoner also helped. He was generally a sober and in-duatrious man. There had been no quarrelling between them, but he heard a little banter exchanged. Mr. Fenwick : The prisoner will be remanded. Let inquiries be made in order to find some other witneas who saw tho paper ignited, WEa'JC HAM. Brutal Assault on a Wife. Charles Done, 41, a labourer, of Solomon'B-row, Canning-town, was charged with violeutly assaulting bis wife Ann, by kicking her in the abdomen, at '69, Rendell-road, on the 11th inst. Dr. Archibald Finlay detailed the in-juries inflioted upon the prosecutrix by her husband, and said they were of a dangerous character. Prosecutrix admitted she was the worse for liquor, and that her husband had forbidden her to go to the house where he found her. Prisoner, who pleaded for the offence to be overlooked on account of his family, was committed for trial, bail being accepted. MIDDLESEX SESSIONS. -Or The adjourned September sessions were opened at the Sessions House, Clerkenwell, by Sir Peter H. Edlin, Q.C., the Assistant Judge, and a bench of magistrates. The calendar contains the names of 127 persons, and 102 cases for trial. Mr. Rihton, as senior member of the bar, congratulated his lordship on having had an honour conferred upon him iu recognition of the long service of one who was the most able exponent of the criminal law that had ever sat in that court. His lord-ship, in reply, thanked the bar for their kind congratulations. Burglary at Twickenham. TFttli'am Baker, 38, labourer, pleaded "Guilty" to stealing a plated salad spoon and other articles of the value of i, the property of Walter James Beale, of Avenue House, St. Margaret's, near Twickenham. The articles stolen were taken off a table in the drawing-room about midday on the 29th of August. Detective-sergeant Burdon saw the prisoner in Great Peter-street, Westminster, on the following morning, aud followed him into a second-hand shop, when a plated fork and other articles were found in his possession. Warder Jones proved eleven previous convictious agaiust him. His lordship passed a sentence of five years' penal servitude. Shoplifting. Scene in Court. Charles Paul, 23, described in the calendar aa a blacksmith, was indicted for stealing fifteen watches, of the value together of nearly .300, from a jeweller's shop in Baker-street, Marylebone, the proprietor of which is Mr. Bening Arnold. He .was convicted, and previous convictions having been proved, he was sentenced to five years' penal servitude. Upon hearing the sentence the mother of the prisoner screamed and created a commotion. She had to be led out of court by officials. Defrauding the Odd Fellows. Joseph Smith Jebbett, 35, shopman, was indicted for embezzling the auma of 7s. 9d., 6s. Hid, 8s., and other sums, the moneys of the trustees of tho Loyal Princess Alice Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The prisoner pleaded "Guilty." Mr. Besley Baid the prisoner had been secretary of the lodge, and the total amount of his defalcations from 1886 to July of this year was ,450. He was in the habit of filling in the members' cards with the amount of their coutribiu tions, aud paying over to tho treasurer a smaller sum than he actually received. He was sentenced to twelve months' imprisonment with hard labour. Notorious Horse Thieves. William Rose, 40, and George Smith, 36, dealer, were indicted for stealing two horses, value i0, the property of Joseph Randall, butcher, of Highgate, for stealing a gelding, value .30, the property of H. Wills; and another gelding, value .50, the property of Robert Egan. Mr. Geoghegan defended both prisoners. In th; case of Mr. Randall, the two horses were stolen when out at grass at Bowes Manor, Southgate, on the 9th of June, and Mr. Wills' gelding on the following day from a field at Edmonton. They were traced to some stables owned by Smith in London, and then to Birmingham, whero they were proved to have been in the possession of both prisoners, neither of whom could give a satisfactory explanation of how they came by them. Tho jury convicted the prisoners on two counts, and acquitted them on a third. His lordship, after previous convictions, sentenced both prisoners to Bix years' penal servitude, and endorsed the recommendation of the grand jury commen ling Sergeant Merrony, Inspector Miller, and Officers Couchman, Targett, and Nupkins. Theft. Ada Osborne, a young servant, was indicted for feloniously stealing a watch, valued at dB16, the property of her mistress, a widow lady, residing at Filmer-road, Fulham. Mr. W. M. Thompson prosecuted. It appeared that the girl'a mistress, on the 23rd July, went to post a letter. On her return, in twenty minutes, she found the house locked up. A policeman effected an entrance through a window. It was then discovered that the watch, which had been left on the dressing-table, was missing, and the prisoner had absconded. The girl was arrested early iu the present month at a rescue home in Pimlico. It was Btated that she had been engaged for a Salvation Army rescue home, and that she had been previously charged at a police-court with attempting to commit suicide. The jury found the prisoner "Guilty." The Assistant Judge postponed sentencing tho prisoner, as, it being her first off ence of this nature, he thought she might be given a final chance of reform by being admitted anew to some rescue home. CENTRAL CRIMINAL COURT. Bueglart. George Kitsell, 56, was charged with feloniously breaking into a counting-house and stealing bills of exchange. Mr. Partridge prosecuted. Tho charge was clearly proved agaiust the prisoner, and the indictment charged several previous convictions against the prisoner. According to the law, these convictions could not have been proved until after the jury had given their opinion upon the principal charge. The prisoner, however, persisted in asserting that ho was innocent, and that he waa a man of good character, and aa ho had thus put the question of his character in issue, the learned counsel for the prosecution had tho right of calling evidence to show who' and what he really was. , Evidence was consequently given that the prisoner had been several times convicted of housebreaking and burglary, and there was no doubt that lie was an old and practised thief. The jury found the prisoner " Guilty," and he was sentenced to ten years' penal servitude. Curious Bigamy Case. William Suthard surrendered to take his trial for bigamy. Mr. Kershaw prosecuted, and Mr. Purcell appeared for the prisoner. The circumstances under which the charge was preferred were of a singular character. In the year 1S58 the prisoner was married to his first wife, and they lived together until the year 1864, when they separated. In 1871 the prisoner woman, by whom he had eleven children. The couple lived happily together until recently, when, some dispute having arisen between them, they went before a magistrate. The first wife then made her appearance, and claimed the prisoner as her husband, but the magistrate, having regard to the number of years that had elapsed since the first marriage and other circumstances, declined to acknowledge her claim. Immediately after this the prisoner made up his differences with his second wife. Mr. Purcell, on behalf of the prisoner, ridiculed tho idea of a man being convicted of bigamy under such circumstances, and said he could almost have claimed an acquittal on tho ground that the prisoner had not heard anything of his wife for a period of seven years after their separation, which was a legal answer to any charge of bigamy. The jury at once returned a verdict of " Not guilty." A XiADTT "'BAWIC-CHAffiGEIJ WITH THEPT. At the Mansion House ou Friday a person of ladylike appearance, who is said to be very highly connected, was charged with stealing a ruby and sapphire ring from Messrs. WaleB and M'Culioch, jewellers, Ludgate-hill, and a pair of opera glasses from Mr. Bateman, an optician, in the Strand. Mr. Grain appeared as counsel for the prisoner. It was stated that on the 20th September the prisoner went to the shop of Mr. Bateman and expressed a desire to purchase an opera glass, but went away without doing so, and immediately after she had gone a pair of opera glasses were missed. On the following day the prisoner went to Messrs. Wales and M'Culioch, and, after professing to intend to purchase a diamond ring, she went away, and a ring and steel hair-pin, of the value of ..8 15s., were missed directly after the prisouer left. Both tho articles were found in the possession of the prisoner. Mr. Grain, ou behalf of the accused, said the case was a very painful one. The prisoner was highly connected, and her relations were persons of high position and great wealth. There wu3 no doubt that the prisoner waa in such a condition of mind as rendered her not responsible for her actions. She had recently undergone a painful operation, and since that time she had been subject to hysteria. These facts had been mentioned to the complainants, and they wore quite willing to withdraw the charges that had been made by them against the prisoner. Mr. Grain trusted that after what he stated the alderman would allow the prosecutors to take this course. He did not desire to mention the real name of the accused, but he wrote it down and proposed to hand it to the alderman. Alderman Cowan said he should decline looking at the paper, and he must deal with the case as it stood. Mr. Grain said that all he was anxious to do was to make tbe alderman aware of the real position of the accused and her family, and that a large money allowance was made to her by her friends, and that she had not the slightest inducement to commit such an offence. Alderman Cowan said he should decline to enter into these questions, and he had only one duty to perform, which was to commit the prisoner for trial. He would, however, take bail for her appearance at the Central Criminal Court, and he fixed the amount in d100 for herself, and two sureties in ,50 each. Major Storey and the Rev. Mr. Dillon at once offered themselves aa sureties, and were accepted, and the pri-Boner was liberated. The Theft by an American Clergyman. The "Rev" Henry Pitman, 57, an American clergyman, was charged at the Mansion House with the robbery of an umbrella 'from the Civil Service Stores, in Queen Victoria-street, on the afternoon of the 20th inst. The evidence has already been given, and on the first hearing the prisoner persisted in his innocenco, but he now pleaded "Guilty," and threw himself on the mercy of the court, stating that poverty and ill-health had driven him to it. The Lord Mayor sentenced him to seven days' imprisonment, without hard labour. Another London Mystery The attention of Police-constable 457 D was called to a brown-paper parcel lying behind some railings at the corner of Devonshire-street and Great Portland - street. On pulling open one corner, he noticed it contained some underclothing, with apparently blood-stains upon it. He therefore conveyed it to the Tottenham-court-road Police-station, where it was opened by the inspector on duty, who found the contonts to consist of a drab flannel shirt, a pair of men's drab pants, a pair of cuffs and a collar. The two first-named articles were completely saturated with blood, but the collars and cuffs were only slightly splashed. The divisional surgeon was sent for, and gave it as his opinion that tbe blood was human. Information was at once forwarded to the chief office, Scotland-yard, and the discovery waa circulated through all the divisions of police n the metropolis for elucidation. To Daeken Gray. Haik.

Bold everywhere 44v(. j DETERMINED &X.OVE FIGHT, A glove fight of an obstinate and determined character was brought off, between Alec Roberts and Arthur Bobbett, at the Lambeth School of Arms. The match was for .200 a side and the lOst. 7lb. championship. Roberts was trained by Howes, who prepared Jem Smith for his match with Kilrain, while Bobbett. was got ready by Jem Bevan. Long before the time fixed for the men to enter the ring a goodly number of spectators had asaembled in the room, and when eight o'clock struck, the place was crowded with sporting men of all denominations. Mr. Dunning, who acted as timekeeper, having ordered the ring to be cleared, the word was given, and the men, at 8.25 exactly, stood up for the contest. Round 1. Both looked in the pink of condition, and after a few rounds spent in sparring, Eoberts Bent hia left homo on the body. Bobbett was short in his counter, and Roberts twice landed smartly with the left on the face. Still forcing the work, Roberta got on heavily with both hands, though half-way through the round Bobbett swung his right heavily on the shoulder, half turning his opponent rouud. Roberts was, however, quickly in front of his rival, and before the rpund ended he had set in three stinging hits with the left. Round 2 saw Roberts again start work, Bobbett adopting defensive tactics. The former shot out the left) and three times lauded heavily on the face, sending Bobbett to the ropes. Some wild exchanges followed, Roberts losing a lot of his strength in "endeavouring to bring off a right-hand cross-counter. Just before the close of the round Bobbett got in two flush hits on his opponent's face. Round 3. Following a few seconds spent in sparring. Roberts again landed his left on the other man's facej narrowly miBsiug n vicious upper-cut in return. Roberts would not be denied, however, aud kept planting his left on the other man, though many of the blows, owing to Bobbett's cloverness iu ducking, went over . his shoulder. In the last thirty seconds a fierce rally ensued, and when "time" was called the men were busy at some desperate half-arm fighting. Round 4. Sparring was indulged in for fifteen seconds, and then Roberts punished his man with three stinging hits on the side of the head. Eoberts rushed in wildly with both hands, but missed, and nearly went through tho ropes. Still keeping at work, he followed tho Fulham man round the ring, Bobbett cleverly keeping out of danger. Rounds 5 to 15 gave little real advantage to either man, while rounds 16 to 20 were of a give-and-take order, Roberts now taking the lead, and having a bit the best of the business. From the 21st to the 2Sth round the exchanges were of a very quiet nature. Tho 32nd round pro.duced a splendid struggle, both men doing their utmost. At round 53, and lust, both were very distressed on responding to the call of time. Roberts took the initiative and landed lightly ou the face with the left, following which nearly thirty seconds were spent in sparring. The first-named subsequently got ou a light body blow, and nothing was done until within fifteen seconds of time. At this stage, when the men were in tho centre of the ring. Baldock jumped through the ropes, and, taking both men by the hand, said, ''Well, it's a good fight, and a draw." At once the ring was invaded, and amidst great excitement the men were taken to their corners. After a slight controversy, the two agreed to make the affair a draw, tho actual time of boxing being 3b. SOniiu. 45sec. Of the two, Bobbett, on leaving the ring, showed least punishment, beyond a slight discoloration on the left eye and a rather ugly swelling on the left ear, no punishment of any consequence being visible. Roberts, on the other hand, was considerably flushed about the face, and also showed a bump on the left -cheek ; beyond this nothing was the matter. PEI3E EIGHT "BETWEEN "WOEEEH. Chicago was treated to the novel spectacle, a few days ago, of a prize fight between two women. Although there have been several encounters in the prize ring between women, exhibitions of this kind are rather unusual. Hattie Stewart, about throe years ago, at New Orleans, had a bout with Annie Lewis. Probably this was the most notable event of the kind that baa takeu place before or aince. Harry Hill, of New York, a great patron of aport, made a feature of boxing exhibitions between women in his theatre for years. Many such encounters occurred in his popular resort, nud it is needless to say they were greatly enjoyed by the happy assemblage of sports that were nightly enter-terlaiued there. But, with few exceptions, it may be said that the woman has not been found yet who has had the stamina to make prize fighting a business. And this is not to be wondered at. We do not see how any woman, however masculine in her nature, could accommodate herself to the rough associations that she would necessarily have to encounter in going about the country to participate in boxing exhibitions. And it is better so. At least it is to be hoped that we shall never have a craze of this sort. Hew York Paper. THB SPOBTItTG- SADY US E3E OIHAaiPIOlT. Joseph Knott, 32, was charged, at Westminster, with being concerned in robbing Mr. John Hawker, gentleman, ot 23, St. George's-place, Hyde-park-comer, of a gold lever watch and locket, small diamond horseshoe piu, and an umbrella, value together .25, at Lower Belgrave-street, on the 18th of July last. The prosecuter stated that he was of independent means. On the 17th of July last he was in the neighbourhood of Victoria Station, standing in a doorway out of tho rain, when he got into conversation with a young lady about her betting transactions, und particularly as to her having been induced by a postman to part with her money. The witness, with a view of helping her, made an appointment to meet her again the following day aud look out for the postman. Accordingly, on the evening of the lath of July, he was in the girl's company in the Buckingham Palace-road. The postman came up, but the prisoner and another man were in his company. The prisoner pretended that the girl owed them money for betting, and asked the witness if he would pay a bet she had lost. Seeing that ho had fallen into a trap, he expressed his sorrow at having spoken to the men, and invited them to have a friendly drink, observing that perhaps their statements were as reliable as the girl's, and be would take no further trouble on her behalf. They then ajourned to a public-house, and he treaty tho party, remaining with them about three quarters of an hour. He left them, proceeded through Lower Belgrave-street, aud entered a public-house. He was surprised when the postman and the other men came iu to be treated again. The witness called for a small glass of rum, but after tasting it a " curious " feeling came over him, and he did not empty the glass. He left the public-house at once by himself, but had gone but a hundred yards when he was attacked, one man violently pushing him headlong down some circular stone steps into an area. The prisoner and a one-eyed man were his assailants, and when iucapable of resistance from the injuries he had received, his pockets were rifled. The man not in custody held him while the prisoner snatched his watch, worth J220, from his chain, and his scarf -pin. Both men then disappeared. Cross-examined by the prisoner, the prosecutor said the young woman followed on to the second public-house, but she did not go inside. He certainly did say, at her request, contrary to the fact, that she was his sister. Constable Smith knew the prisoner used to be nn associate of thieves. The one-eyed man who had not been arrested was also of notoriously bad character. By Mr. Partridge : The postman is no longer in the service of the Post-office, and I do not know where ho has gone. Mr. Partridge remanded the prisoner in custody, so that the police might endeavour to make further arrests. A JUDGE OH a.'H3S EAKKKWPSCTr ACS?. Yesterday, during the hearing of an application by a debtor for the administration of hia affairs, and who offered 3d. in the pound, a solicitor, who appeared for one of the creditors, objected to so small an order being made. The Bankruptcy Act, he contended, waa not meant by the Legislature to be a mere " whitewashing" enactment. This debtor was trying to use the process of the court solely to " whitewash " himself at the expense of his creditors, who had unfortunately trusted him in Mb business, and were now to lose their money. The Act, he considered, was only intended to protect people in situations from being pestered with judgment summonses. The deputy judge (Mr. Besley) : I don't agree with you. I believe it was absolutely the intention of the Act of 1SB3 to "whitewash," and to discourage the giving of credit. Here is a man with nine children, burdened with a debt of 42, and he must either get rid of it or go with his family into the workhouse. The statute, I may tell you, was not intended, as some people suppose, for the protection of creditors, but to prevent poor debtors, from being harassed by legal proceedings. An order was then made for 3d. in the pound. 2HESIN&. Mrs. Vossof 45, Tetcott-road, Chelsea, attended before Mr. Biron to obtain publicity with a view of tracing her daughter Lilly, 17 years, who left her home on the 19th of July last ostensibly to go back to her situation at Wandsworth, but who had never been since seen or heard of by her friends Applicant said the girl was of medium height, and of rather prepossessing appearance. Her father feared that she had been enticed away for a bad purpose. AVs are asked from a mother at 32, Rutland-gate, London, S.W., to 6tate that Alfred Farrer, footman, between seventeen and eighteen years of age, went away a month ago ostensibly for Tuubridge-wells, and has not returned.

A single woman, named Hannah Harrison, living at Haydock, was charged at Warrington with the murder of her child, aged three years. She told the police that on Sunday she went with the child to Ashton-in-Makerfield, three miles away, and that on returning home at night she was accosted by two men, one of whom seized the child and threw it into the reservoir while the other pushed her into the water. The men then decamped, and the child was drowned. The prisouer waa remanded. Fatal Fight in London. A fight, which terminated fatally to one of the combatants, took place ou Thursday evening in Stanhope-street, Clare Market. Two men named Dowdon and Best, after an altercation, fought together, and it is stated that as the latter was falling from a blow given by Dowdon, he struck his head against the kerb. Best was taken to King's College Hospital, where the house surgeon pronounced him to be dead. Dowdon gave himself up to tho police, and was charged at Bow-street with causing the death of George Best. The witnesses expressed their conviction that the fatality was purely accidental. Sergeant Partridge said he was given to understand that this was so, and the prisoner was then remanded, bail for his reappearance being taken in two sureties in .20. THB TTAXUE OP ADVERTISING, From the Kettering Observer. Sometimes, when we have been dilating upon tSfu value of advertising to tradesmen, we have cited tlia examples which they have every week before their eyes in the various patent medicines advertised in this journal. We have often said that we know, from uu. solicited testimony, that it pays to advertise with us . and we have further said that when a reader buys any. thing through this medium we should be pleased if that fact were notified by the vendor. In return, it ij equally incumbent upon us, if business is done satis, factorily, to say so. One day we met a young man whom we have known for several years, Mr. Albert Ball, of Albert-street, Kettering, a bricklayer by trade, and he informed n.' that he had met with an accident and was on the sick list. A brick or some heavy substance had fallen on his right foot, injuring it rather badly. It was at one time feared that lock-jaw would ensue. Happily, jt did not ; but the shock to tbe system was so great "that it caused extreme nervous debility. We saw Mr. Hut) in a reading-room when he could not hold a newspaper for five minutes together, and his whole system !iP. peared to be completely unhinged. He looked like cue who was fast becoming a physical wreck. The nevt time we met with him about a fortnight afterwards, a. great change had been wrought in his health and pearauce. "What do you think-"' said he. "1 h' seen and read so much in your paper about' Warner'n Safe Cure, that I thought I would try it.
