Here is the home of the shining lights in the lit erary world. Here, like the ancient city of Greece, is the cradle of osophic lore, and here all great minds instinctively find "congenial spirits.

Lehing, Augusta' McGinnis, Frank" Bothwick, Eddie McLaugh lin, Arthur Henry, Mat hew King, 'A Nlarabir Caae of Inn, 'in 'the Police1 Court this morning William Owen, colored, was tried on charge of arson, being accused of setting fire to the barn belonging to Mr. Collins, on Jackson street near Third. The examination was long and tedious, and nt its close the Judge considerably perplexed tht evidence being not only very contradictory, but also that some "tall swearing" "was done on one side or both.

A Mr. Palmer swore that he had heard Owen threaten to do some violence there that he watched him from his garden on the night of the fire; that he saw him crouch down into the shadow of a tree; that he stood face to face with him for fif teen minutes, with the picket fence only between them, neither speaking word! Saw him immediately be fore the fire in the neighborhood of the barn; and after the fire had pro gressed, considerably, and several persons had arrived at the scene, he saw Owens there, and attempted to arrest him; that he ran off, and was overtaken by Mr. Dutre, and by both men brought back to the fire and from thence token by officer McKay to the station-house. On the other hand Owens' mother swore that William accompanied her to the tent meeting that night; returned at 11 o'clock; saw her, son retire, and denied4 the possibility I of his being able, to go out of the house 1 wimoui ner snowing it or neonng him, and that he did not leave the house until after i the fire bell rang. Mr.

Myles and Mr. Scrib-ner corroborated her statement as to the time of the negro leaving the house. Owens himself gave about the same story mother did. He swore positively that he did not leave his house that night; thatie did not setj the barn on fire. A number of other witnesses were examined The negro says when he came to the fire Palmer and Dutre arrested him.

I but denies running away. The pros-i- ecution, in submitting tne case, ad mitted that Owens was at home when the fire alarm was given, and the Judge had no doubt on this point, an dcould only wonder whether Mr. could have been mistaken as. to his seeing the negro at the time and place stated. The case being submitted without argument, Judge Jayne took the case under advise ment until to-morrow.

The case of James Murphy charged with attempt at illegal voting, was called at one o'clock. 8. BrWR Will sell all kinds of hardware as low as the lowest. Especially wire- cloth. An Alabama man advertises: "Pre pare at once to get one of my Pio torialHome I have the best umbrellas for buggies.

Also, another good thing, cucumber pumps. The best of all is the American cistern fil The people want my patent cof fee-pots these hard times. Select styles of gentlemen's silk hats, dress patterns, sewing machines, kerosene oil, non-explosive lamps, pianos, or gans, harness, jewelry, etc. Give me a call." He will be hard to please who cannot be suited at that estab lishment. W.

D. Fountain Has on hand ten pianos to rent from five to ten dollars per month An enterprising superintendent of one of our city Sunday schools was engaged last Sunday in chatechizing the scholars, varying the usual method by beginning at the end of the Cathecism. After asking what were the prerequisite for the Holy Com munion and Confirmation, and re ceiving very satisfactory replies, he asked: "And now. boys, tell me what must precede Baptism? Whereupon a lively urchin -shouted out. "a baby, air." Fact; followed by sensation and laughter.

Postponed. The lecture announced by Prof. Plummer for this evening is indefi nitely postponed on account of the Charon in his modern "Whitehall. Alas! -we cannot always hare things aaVwe wonld like, and bo when we think we are in possession of a price- gem, like riches, it takes unto itself wings and suddenly flies away, So with Count Bismarck. Scarcely I had the soles of his illustrious feet kissed oar hallowed sod, when, upon I calling for a glass of lager at the Oak-1 land Brewery Depot, he was notified oi tne result ot tne recent Option election and so hor-l rifled and chagrined was heat this state of affairs in the city of his adoption that he angrily turned on his heel, like the haughty Mingo Chief, shook off the dust of Oakland i from his feet, vowed he would never i again darken Joe Die ves'-door, and with measured tread wended his way towards the dominions of his former illustrious coadjntator and friend.

Spreckles. Previous to bis departure he expressed his intention of perma- i 1 nently locating in- Santa Cmz. He looked care-worn and sad. His face was the result of over-excitement, and his white mustache, with hair of corresponding color, was thickly coated with dust. He seemed dejected and sad.

He confidentially remarked to a friend that he seriously contemplated changing his name to that of Crossmark. Alas how art the mighty fallen, and their high places come to nought. H. E. Wilcox Sells Painted Wire Safe Cloth at Eight cents per Broadway square foot, '955 From some cause the assertion has been frequently made, and is received by the thoughtless, that the 4th of March never comes on Sunday; and was on that account selected as the day for inaugurating our Chief Mag istrates.

Next inauguration day will fall on Sunday, and as the terms of the President and Vice-President ex pire at twelve o'clock Saturday night, the Speaker of the House of Representatives will be President of the United States till the Presidentelect is sworn in Monday. This will be sthe third occurrence of this kind in the country Monroe commencing his second term Monday, March 5, 1821, and Zachary Taylor his term oh Monday, March 5, 1849. H. Brown -j Will sell all kinds of hardware as low as the lowest. Especially wire- cloth.
