THE TTMES PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY MORNING, JULY 16, 1878. A CITY CHARACTER. CILUH, KNOWN AS SHARKEY'S KID. Kov H Eu Worked Along Through Vidoitula tt . Tery Checkered Life Until At Lut Ha Aipirei to a (Sty Commisaionership. BiU of Eii Career. I June K 1 Suhf" l K ttillin nt th Third Ward. Buttfect to Democratic Kuiea. Five thousand cards bearing the above announcement are being distributed around town. People wonder who James K. Gillin is, but very little inquiry enlightens them in the way that down - town Democratic meeting had its eyes opened one night. It was a big meeting, and the chairman had just been selected when a little individual with twinkling eyes, wbom everybody appeared to know, arose and cried out, " For secretary, I nominate James K. Gillin, f the Third ward." Nobody knew who the nominee was, but be was elected by acclamation. Then the little individual with twinkling eyes, whom everybody appeared to know, again arose and himself walked forward and took the secretary's seat on the platform. A howl went up of " Sharkey's Kid !" and there was a rush, and the gay young deceiver was hustled from the platform. As " Sharkey's Kid " his fame was town - wide ; as James K. Gillin he was known to no man. So now, when he is an aspirant to the City Commissionership, his cards have to be translated as he himself translated his name before the down - town meeting. As tho "Kid " he is everywhere known, and as the " Kid" he must therefore, though in reverence, be spoken of. His whole lifo has in many respects been the perpetuation of one vast joke, and consequently many have looked upon the "Kid's" political aspirations as a piece of pleasantry on his part another practical joke but the " Kid," with serious visage, vows his earnestness. Said he yesterday: "I'll tell you what I base my claims upon. If I have not done more for the Democratic party since 186'7 than any other of the candidates I will withdraw from the canvass. When in office I will wield the sceptre of power with due regard to the rights of the people who put me there. It will be a reform office yes, I will give the other Bide all the reform they want." That is tho "Kid's" platform. Now for the "Kid" himself. His biography is now written for the first time. WHO THE "KID" IS. The "Kid's" personal aprearance is well known to everybody who drops into court or the District Attorney's office, and, indeed, thero is not a political manager in town, and but few throughout the State, who is not acquainted with him. He is a little wiry fellow, apparently twenty years of age, but in reality ten years older. His eyes attract immediate attention. They are bright aud forever twinkling, and they snap in unison with the quick movements of bis body. Just now, when a candidate, the '"Kid" is wearing what he pleases to term an "Enniskillen" hat a ridiculous straw affair, all crown aud no rim and yellow with age. His donning of this is a bid for the Labor vote, "and you bet yer boots," says tho " Kid," "it will capture the Communists." James K. Gillin first kicked this latter is a misnomer, for the "Kid" never jumped the party traces within the precincts of the Fourth ward, but even in his infancy his lungs could not breathe the unhealthy political atmosphere of that locality, and so he emigrated to a point a short distance westward and becauio a Third ward carpet - bagger. When fourteen years of age he thought it would be a good joke to enlist, and so the One II n nil red and Filly - fourth Pennsylvania Volunteers had him marching in front of them alarming the enemy with the noise of a fife. Later on he was attached to Colonel Lafayctto C. Baker's corps of government detectives aud in this capacity it was that tho "Kid" first displayed his peculiar powers. Had he not been so addicted to practical joking he would to - day be one of the foremost detectives in the country. In 1865 he was appointed a storekeeper under the United States Marshal for tho Eastern District, Col. Peter C. Ellinaker, retaining his position until 18G9, "when," says the " Kid," "I organized the Philadelphia branch of the International Divorce Detective Agency, a concern that still flourishes." The agency seems to have a rather mythical existence. Its office is under the branches of a big tree at the northwest corner of Sixth and Sansom streets. The repetition of its high - sounding title appears, however, to afford its organizer the most intense satisfaction. It was when he entered the United States Mar shal's office that the " Kid " fell into the welcoming arms of Detective John F. Sharkoy and his careor as a public character began. John Sharkey, who is now the District Attorney's officer, was at that time, together with Detective David Gordon, a Deputy United States Marshal. He took a liking to the " Kid " aud made him accompany him in all his undertakings. HOW DID HE GET HIS TITLE ? Just here the question arises whence the name. "Sharkey's Kid," is applied to Mr. Gillin. Opinions on this point differ. Once when on tho witness stand in the old Court House tho bearer of the sobriquet was asked by tho District Attorney why he was called tho " Kid." " Why," replied the witness, gravely, "because I'm young and tender." It is probable, however, that those who baptized him the second time were the illicit whisky distillers of Kensington aud Kichmond, who flourished immediately after the war. The "Kid" it was who ferreted out the contraband stuff and he it was who took doligbt, when a raid was made, in knocking holes in brand - new stills, while the owners, looking on, tore their hair and swore vengeance, and so it came about that, as the boy was ever treading on Sharkey's heels, the makers of the unstamped dew whenever they saw him trotting up the street cried out in their anguish: "Here comes that Sharkey's kid." A party of politicians chartered a schooner and went upon a trip down the bay. The "kid" Volunteered as cook aud was accepted. The first morning the cook was sent below among tho eatables aud demijohns. Every ten minutes the cook put bis head above the gangway and sang ont, " Holler out when you want yer dinner," and every time the cook's face was redder and redder. The demijohns were still below, though. At last the cook was told to rush things along. At the word of command the cook piled every Stick of wood at his disposal into the stove, and when tho passengers saw smoke and flames issuing from the galley they looked below and saw the " Kid " steadying himself by holding on to the rod - hot stove. His hands were terribly blistered, and that ended his cooking experience. The "Kid," too, is a great reader, lie was actually registered as a student at law in 1807, from the office of William Bull. "I've bceu studying ever since," says the "Kid," "and Mr. Bull has been in Europe almost ever since, but as soon as he returns I will be admitted and niako thing3 whoop." That he has been reading to some purpose was made evident in Athletic Hall a few years since. Apolitical meeting was again the scene, and the then Assistant District Attorney, Henry S. Hagert, was elbowing his way to the stage, while a young lawyer, Luther Martin, whose name is the reverse of the Keformcr of the sixteenth century, wasspeaking. Mr. Hagert met Mr. Gillin near the stage. "How are you, Kid?" he said. "Sh, Sh," said the " Kid," impressively. "Don't disturb mo, Mr. Hagert. I've read this man's work on the Eeloriuatiou, and I want to hear him speak." THB " KID " AS A NATURALIZER. As a naluralizor of would - be - Democrats it is conceded by itepuhiicans and Democrat? that the "Kid" has his equal nowhere Every year prior to olection he brings men into court by the dozens and obtains their papers for them. But in all this he preserves tho almost ludicrous dignity that is one of his most distinguishing traits. He picks up the unwashed, but he makes them wash themselves, and ho generally manages, in a gang of twenty "fun - inure," to find two or throe with coats to their backs. These he takes np into court first and makes citizens of them. Then be brings them down stairs, orders them to loan their coats to two or thrco others and these in turn are taken before the Judges. Thus the coats pass around the crowd, " for you see," says tho "Kid," "I must maintain my respectability." Upon one occasion, driven to desporate straits, the "Kid's" own coat was made to do service seven times in succession, the owner only seeiim his charges to tho door of the court room. Old "Jimmy " Devine, a suspicious Qnnrter Sessions tipstaff, who witnessed part of tho occurrence, said afterwards that the " Kid " bad got ono man to personate seven times in succession. The " Kid " claims honestly to have been tho first man to set to work to ferret out tho Mollie Maguires. Ho was at various times employed by tho big corporations in the coal regions and as a result of his endeavors a large number of minor criminals w;re arrested, but he was betrayed one night, aud lloarity, who was afterwards hung at I'ottsvillo, beat him over the hoad with a bagful of coal and nearly killed bim. Now the "Kid" wants to be City Commissioner. Ho" has the delegates, ho says, aud be Will take the stump and blow his own horn. Officer Maguirc's Assailant. On the morninc; of June 28 Policeman Ma - mire of the fcvcnili district, arrested one of a pnlr Sf oombaUinte who were llirMinir at Delaware ami Kalrmoiuit avenues. A crowd mirrounded limi anil almoxt pinned him Into the dock nt the loot of Oreen street. Ho wiw struck on the head hy imt - ine iid rendered Inranvihle. his pnnnner escaping. Yesterday William Larkins had a hearing before Magis trate Pole, charged with bavins; thrown the boulder which laid Maguira np in tbe hospital. Magaire aid he could not tell who was hia amaUant, bat beckoned to a oine - year - old lad. William Baker, wbo, be Mid. knew all about the affair. This youth in knee breeches, when questioned concerning hia knowledge of tbe nature of an oath, g - ave tbe uaual answer of tbe email boy concerning - tbe fate of wicked little nrchina wbo do not tell the troth, and was declared to be a qualified witness. He said he saw Larkins pick np a stone, but did not know whether he hit tbe officer or not. He was also unable to recollect the day of the occurrence. Ijurkins was held to answer. THREE TO TWO. The New Bedford Club Beaten by the Athletic After a Hot Tussle. The New Bedford Club is a strong one, and has won some notable victories this season. The team brought its best batters all the way from the city of whale oil and blubber, in Massachusetts, to take the Athletic into camp. The game was played yesterday afternoon, bnt tbe visitors wanted just two more runs than they got to give them the victory. As nsual, the Athletic lost the toss, and Sensenderfer took np the bat for the home nine. He was disposed of by a foul bound to Beilly. Shctzline was more fortunate, and reached first base on a hot grounder, which Davis, fumbled. A wild pitch gave him a lift, and a beautiful twn - base hit by Mason brought bim home. Mason subsequently scored on Pfef - fer's hit for a bag, but tbe latter player was left, Loinas going out on a foul and Waitt on a fly to Stone, away down in left field. Then the New Bedford took a turn at the bat, and Gore was given first on called balls and managed to get around to third on a wild pitch. Stovey hit strong to Lomas, and Gore, who bad started for home, was caught between third and homo - plate. Tiggott struck to Wiley, and Stovey was captured between second and third. Evans made a safe hit, but was left through Bradley's fly to Waitt. The fielding iu this inning was particularly brilliant. The score now stood 2 to 0 for the home nine. The Athletic had got the lead and they maintained it to the end. They disposed of their opponents easily in the second inning and iu the third Shetzline got in a base bit, after "Sensy's" out, and scored off Pfeffer's safe hit for a bag. This was the last of their run - getting. They banged away at Bradley and found no difficulty in hitting him'but the sharp fielding of the New Bedford prevented another man from crossing the plato. The first run for the visitors was made iu the fourth inning, when Evans made a base hit aud Bradley followed. Beilly was first out, by Mason. Evans succeeded in getting home, but Bradley was caught at the plate and Mutrie ended the inning with a lly to Mason. After this the play was very sharp. The Athletic closed their ninth inning with a total score of 3 runs aud the visitors came to tho bat with two runs to make to tie the game and three to win. Evans, wbo had done most of the batting for the nine, after missing two balls, struck heavily to left field for three bases. The spectators were all on their feet with excitement when Bradley stepped up to the plate. He struck a hot grounder to Wiley and was retired at first, bnt Evans scored. The New Bedford now wanted hut one run to tie the game and it looked as if they would get it, when Heilly, who had done nothiug at the bat so far, got in a safe hit. Davis, however, went out on a foul tip and Mntrie closed the game with a fly to Pfeffer. The game throughout was interesting aud exciting. The score follows : ATHLETIC. SEW BEDFORD. K. B. P. A.

Xamiaisesaees by tbe Lady to Whom Lafayette and Otast Pnataeat Ksa Gave Sittiags - Ike Text sf am Aatograph Letter from the Xarqais to the Artist, Was Sarah M. Peale, artist, daughter of James Peale, miniature painter, and niece of Charles Wilson Peale, has returned to reside in this city, after an absence of over thirty years in St Louis and nearly twenty years elsewhere. Besides her connection with a family of painters. Hiss Peale's ancestry on the maternal side is traced back to Oliver CromwolL Her great - grandfather, John Claypole, grandson of the Lord Protector, was one of tbe seven who accompanied William Penn to America in 1682, and his son, James Claypole, bnilt the first brick house in Philadelphia. James Peale had six children, only three of wbom are now living, Hiss Sarah, Hiss Hargaretta and the widow of General William Duncan. Mrs. Duncan resides at the southeast corner of Seventh and Wood streets, and her sisters are with her. The three ladies are far advanced in years. Hiss Sarah being about seventy, although still having the appearance of mental and physical vigor in ber pleasing face. She has never had necessity for the use of eye - glasses and can read fine print by lamplight. In conversation the old lady is lively and interesting, but her memory of events that occurred in her youth is not so good as it generally is in persons of her age. The descendants of the Peales are numerous in this city. Miss Peale is self - taught in painting. "My first work," she says, " was a portrait of myself. My father, when we lived in Baltimore, mixed the colors and told me to sit before a mirror aud paint it. He left me alone till I had finished, then returned and criticized it, found some fault and said, a little impatiently: 'D nit, why didn't yon do as I told you T That was the only time I ever heard him use anything like profanity." Subsequently Miss Peale painted with her nncle, in I'hiladelpnia. , LAFAYETTE SITS FOB HIS. Her portraits had won reputation for excellence, and the Marquis de Lafayette, when on his second visit to this country, in 1825, was among the untable personages who gave her sittings. Generally five sittings of about two hours each were required for a portrait. Lafayette, having finished the fourth sitting, visited the scene of his Revolutionary achievements at Brandywine, and there, being called upon to fulfil au engagement at once further South, he sent a note to Miss 1'ealo with reference to tho fifth sitting. The note was afterward mislaid and tbe lady gave it up as lost. Bnt since ber arrival in this city she has found it in a box of old papers at Mrs. Duncan s house. Although it is rjtty - toree years old the paper is well preserved and the ink but little faded. The writing (by Lafayette's own hand) is all on the first page of a sheet ot note paper, runs gracefully and is perfectly legible. The reader will see, however, that the distinguished correspoudeut docs not show himself to be so able a master of English as he was a leader of an army. The superscription is " Miss Sarah M. Peale, No. 228 Spruce street, Philadelphia," aud the coutents are as follows: Bkanpywijse, July 20, 1825. - T have every day expected the pleasure to wait on MissS. l'eule, and am obliged now to prescnta double apology for my non - attendance, and for my not haring answered her note. The latter she will the better excuse ns it was mingled with a daily hope to present myself to her. 1 urn on my way to Baltimore. Washington and Virginia, und will pass at Washington and Baltimore the ten Inst days of August, the vicinity ot Baltimore permitting my paving there a visit of at last one full day betore I come back. Should the arrangements of Miss Beale. who is often at those places, give me nu opportunity to wait upon her, I would be very happy to gire her the last sitting she is pleased to rccpuest. I hare the honor to ofTcr to the ladies my best respects, Lafayettb. My affectionate regards wait on the whole family. Miss Sauau Peale. OLD - TIME CONGRESSMEN SIT. But an opportunity for tho fifth sitting never occurred and the unfinished portrait was subsequently lost. Later Miss Peale painted portraits in Baltimore and Washington, among thoso who sat for her being Congressmen Caleb Cushiug, Thomas Beuton, Lewis l' Linn, Dixon H. Lewis, Abel P. Upsher, Henry A. Wise and William E. King, who was subsequently Vice President of the United States. Of Mr. Cushiug the old lady says : "He was in tho Congressional Library. I sent my card to him. He came out. I requested sittings from him, hut he behaved so rudely that I felt mortified for having asked him. He promised to sit, however, and named a day when he would meet me at my house. He came according to appointment. I was up stairs. When tbe colored boy, who had shown him in, came up to me, I told him to request the gentleman to take a seat in the parlor. The boy did so, but Mr. Cushing said gruffly : 'Nevermind, I can take care of myself, can't I ?' and he continued pacing np and down the hall until I presented myself. Throughout the first and second sittings his conduct was so careless and rough as to disgust mc. Ho was vain, too, and very particular about the color of tho dress. To provoke me further he demanded to know all about the materials composing tho colors and spoke as though he knew more of my business than I did myself. When the picture was finished he said : 'Why, madam, you have made it too haudsome.' 'Ah,' I replied, ironically, 'but not so handsome as the original.' That sentence made the vain Senator my firm friend. He at once paid me my prico $60 and took away the picture. Ho was so pleased with it that, some days afterward, whon I was sitting with other ladies in the Senate gallery, the Senator, seeing me, came over and chatted with me so long as to make mo feel embarrassed, for the eyes of many Senators were upon ns. The tete - a - tete became the subject of playful conversation among them and one member declared that dishing had never before paid so much attention to a lady." Not long after Judge Upsher's sittings he was killed by the explosion of the big gun on the Princeton. Mrs. Upsher then bought the portrait and blessed the artist for having paiuted it. For Dixon H. Lewis, " the fat member from Alabama," Miss Peale used a canvas thirty inches wide and yet "couldn't get the gentleman all on it." The head was right, but the shoulders had to he planed off. Mr. Lewis weighed four hundred aud sixty pounds. His scat in the Congressional Hall was of twice the ordinary width. In sitting for the portrait, however, he managed to get along with an ordinary chair without letting it divido him into two equal parts. But, as he said himself, "it was a terrible job." When William R. King sat he showed scrupulous care in the choice of every article of his dress and the manner of its arrangement. So precise was he in matters of this kind that his fellow - members rarely called him, outside tho halls of Congress, by any other name than " Miss Betsey." Miss Peale left Washington to visit Europe for the benefit of her fast - declining health. Having recuperated strength on the other sido of tho Atlantic, she returned to Baltimore. From there she wont to St. Louis by invitation of prominent citizens, intending to remain only a short lime. But success in her profession prompted a stay that was prolongod to thirty years. The old lady still paints portraits, although for the last year or two her brush has been devoted chiefly to representations of fruit. PUGNACIOUS YACHTSMEN, The Lively Fight Among the Owners of tho Yacht Williuin Tell, . Samuel Taylor aud Charles H. Millbowor aro part owners in the Delaware river yacht William Tell, and their quarrels have resulted in a series of cross arrests on various charges, Taylor and Martin Wiblo arranged to take their families on a beach party upon tbe yacht on Sunday, but when they went to the boat anchorage at the Knickerbocker Ice Company's wharf, at Beach and Marlborough streets, they found Millbower, Samuel Spriuger, William .McMin aud others there, who threatened to cut loose the boat before the Taylor party should have her. A goncral fight ensued. Taylor and Wihle were struck on tho head and knocked ovorboard and thrown in agaiu as fast as they emerged, and Spriuger aud Millbower were also cut on tho head, The police heard the racket and arrested all hands. The damaged fellows wore sent to the hospital, to await arrest when their wounds heal up, and McMin, the only uninjured one, was locked up in default of SStW bail, GRANT & AULL'S STOLEN BONDS. The Supposed Thief Discharged, Iiut to Answer for a Boston Itobbery. Tho case of William H. Robinson, arrested in Jersoy City about two weeks ago, on suspicion of having been one of the parties - vho were in Grant & AulPs Third street banking houso when the f 12,000 worth of bonds were spirited away, came np before Magistrate Polo yesterday moruing. Mr. J. R. Grant, who was in the office at the time, went over the story of tho theft, allirming positively that Robinson aud another man were there just previously. Lewis C, Cassidy insisted that a strong case of suspicion had been made out against Robinson, although all tho nocessary witnesses wore not available. Mr. Mann contended that no more suspicion rested unon Rohiuson than upon Mr. Aull, who was in tho back oflice when tho bonds were taken, and that the same thine might have happened while he (Mr. Mann) waa thereon boaineas. He argued that if Robinson was wanted in Boston for s crime he should be sent there, bnt that there was nothing to hold him upon here. Tbe ease was held nnder consideration nntil the afternoon session, when Magistrate Pole decided to discbarge tbe prisoner on the charge preferred by Hr. Grant, because the evidence did not amount to anything more than a case of suspicion, insufficient to send it before a jury. Then he paused slightly and the prisoner looked as though his pinions were unfolding for flight. The Magistrate, continuing, said : " You will remain in custody, however, to await a requisition from tbe Massachusetts authorities." Counsellor Cassidy said he regretted that the evidence submitted by the brokers was insufficient to make out a case to tbe satisfaction of the Magistrate ; but, like all good citizens, they would submit to the justice of the decision. He felt eatisfied that gome other lines of justice would reach Robinson. The State of Massachusetts was taking a healthful interest in his future. By this remark Mr. Cassidy alluded to telegram received by Chief of Police Jones from Deputy Chief Quinn, of Boston, dated July 6, which says: "We have an indictment and requisition for William H. Dewitt, alias 'Snatch - er,' alias W. H. Henderson, alias W. H. Robinson, for robbery. We want him if not convicted in Philadelphia. Hold him and telegraph at once." UNLICENSED TAVERNS. One Hundred and Twemy Saloon - Keepers Indicted for Mot Paying the Tax. The law requires all tavern - keepers to procure licenses before the first Monday of June. After that date the constables of the different wards make a tour of their respective districts and re port to the Clerk of the Quarter Sessions all un licensed taverns. The names of several hun dred delinquent liquor - dealers have lately been laid before the District Attorney, and bills of indictment against them are being drawn and sent before tbe grand jury. Yesterday in the neighborhood of 120 such bills found their way into the grand jury room. They were against tavern - keepers doing business in tbe First to the Tenth ward inclusive. Hie present graud jury will not make their next re port until within a day or two from the end of this term, consequently not until then will tbe number of bills fouud true be made public. Tbe penalty upon conviction, for not complying with tho provisions of the license act, is a fine not exceeding $200 or imprisonment not ex ceeding two yoars, or both, at the discretion of the court. As a general rule the delinquent liquor dealers make payment ot the license with costs of prosecution, and end the cases before they are called for trial. Should there be con viction the judges rarely impose a sentence more than a light fine and an order that the license be paid. Thinning Out the Seventh Street Ruffians, Detective Umstcad, taking a cruise along seventh street yesterday about noon iu quest ol the light - lingered, heard the cry ol stop thief, and saw three of tho Juyne street gang of young pickpockets running down Seventh street, lie captured Neiil McCoy, aud soon alterwurd William J. Quinn, a companion, was taken into custody by a reserve policeman. A lady standing looking into a shop window at Seventh and Arch streets had had her pocket picked by one of the gang. V hen McCoy and Quinn were brought before Magistrate Polo Detectives Uinstead and Galloway bestowed upon them the reputation of full - fledged professional thieves, and two reserve officers corroborated the stutcnient concerning their companionship with young pickpockets. McCoy denied that their errand upon the street was criminal and aaid they were only "tooling" with an old man. When they enierge from Moyamensing's cells, October's sun win beam upon their prison - bleached countenances, Dill and Hoyt from Afar, Dr. Jtediield In Ciuciunati Commercial. Dill himself is a thoughtful man, not inclined to "slon over." lie expects to be elected. yet he acknowledges that there arc shades of doubt. The hard times, greenback, temperance, inflation, workingmcn aud women's rights and soft - soap rote is an unccrtaiu quantity, and it is too early to say how many more "isms" will apiear before election, or which of the two great parties will suffer most. One thing all acknowledge, and that is that there never was a lime when party lines were so loose as now, every fellow with an ism ' being inclined to assert it and go off into a party of his owu. Hoyt lircs at Wilkesbarre. and is called the idol of Wyoming Valley, and all that kind of thing, but he will not carry his own county. Luzerne will indorse labor und greenbacks, nnd lenre Hoyt and Pill lo get their majorities elsewhere, though Hoyt will likely lead Hill iu that county. But each will be far ueuinu the Oreeuback and i.abor hosts. Row the Heat Afreets the Public Health.

Yesterday morning about daybreak Mr. Bolan, the merchant tailor at Seventh and Walnut streets, arose from hia bed, swallowed a hasty breakfast, issued forth upon the almost deserted streets and took his way to the neighborhood of 1900 North Seventh street At exactly the same time Mr. Herold, a business man at 916 Chestnut street, awoke, sprang from his conch and went through tbe same performance. Half an honr later the forms of Hr. Bolan and Hr. Herold respectively might have been seen in the gray light "shadowing" the dwelling 1915 North Seventh street. Hr. Herold had lost a diamond ring worth $35 and Hr. Bolan had lost a watch and chain worth 183.83. The moving cause of theso losses was in that house in the person of a young man with a blonde moustache and Cornish side - whiskers, whom the warrants, lying perdu in Solan's and Herold's pockets respectively, designated as Eugene Harvey. Mr. Bolan's warrant charged Harvey with cheating and defrauding, and Hr. Herold's warrant charged him with larceny as bailee. A policeman came along while they were watching and agreed to engineer tbe legal end of the affair. This he did with such success that when the young man with tbe Cornish whiskers stepped out from his house, a few minutes later, he was unceremoniously gathered up. They took him to Magistrate Uriah's office, where the cases at once weut to a hearing. That dashing young customer of bis client, the tailor, whose spurs as a' lawyer are bright from exceeding newness, Charles G. Harres, appeared for both of the prosecutors, and these victims went on the stand and told their stories. Mr. Bolan said the young man was introduced to him by another young man several weeks ago. A few days afterward he came into his store and wanted to trade a fine - looking watch for Mr. Bolau's watch and chain. His time - piece, he represented, was worth more than $50, and tvas a Walthain movement. He would like to trade for "devilment" only for a few days, if Mr. Bolan wished. On this understanding Mr. Bolan traded. Afterward he discovered the watch he had received, though exceedingly showy, was worth just $12.50. The young man didn't show himself in Mr. Bolau's part of the town any more, and shortly afterward it turned out that he had sold the fashionable tailor's watch and chain to a refiner, who had melted the cases. Mr. Herold's story was that Harvey, who had gotten into his confidence, prevailed on him to let him have possession of bis diamond ring and be would sell it for bim. He got the ring, but Hr. H. never got its equivalent in cash or otherwise. The Magistrate decided to hold Harvey in JoOObail on each charge for court. Harvey said he could get bail aud sent for his mother. ..She made oath that she owned property on or near Oxford street worth $10,000. " Yes, and $2,500 on top o' that," chimed in Harvey, junior. It appeared that Mrs. Harvey was not a widow, however, being married to her second husband, aud tho Magistrate declined to take her bail. Counselor Harres said, in tbe ahlo argument in which he attacked the culprit and complimented his client, that Harvey belonged to a gang of sharpers who swindled people by palming off cheap jewelry for the more valuable art icle, and Mrs. Harvey, turniug to her son, said : "Do you hear that? He says you belong to 'a gang.' "I hear him," said the young man, with unruffled countenance. Ho then told Harres that he'd "ten' to him" for it, and remarked to his mother, loud enough for the lawyer to hear bim and blush in consequence of tho irapeachtueut, that he didn't know " whether this was the first case he (Harres) had ever appeared in or not." Harvey is a defiant young man, who goes off like a spring - gun whenever any ono hints that ho is not pursuing an exactly legitimate avoca - tiou. There is a bold, confident manner about him which his victims say is but feebly expressed iu tho word "eheek." He told liolan on his arrest, yesterday morning, that he had seen something iu Thk Times about tbe loss of his watch aud he had intended to go around to his place and demand an explanation. After the hearing he talked about settling the affair with Mr. Herold, but without success, however; and then turning to Mr. Bolan, said : "As for you, I'll have something to do with yon about defamation of character." At last accounts he was hunting bail. NEWS IN THE PENINSULA. Crisfleld keeps up its oyster shipments. Senator Bayard's father was with hira at Kehoboth Beach last week.
