An information was made before Justice
Salsbury, of 'Birmingham, yesterday, by
Jacob Lettston,*charging William Grover
and Elizabeth Lettston. wife of the prose
cutor, with larceny. which, if the charge
be true. developes the fact that the prose
cutor has not only been robbed of a little
"filthy lucre," but that the wife of his
bosom,lhe partner of his joys and sorrows,
has been induced to depart from the path
of virtue, leave her husband and fly with
It is alleged ;by the irosecutor that he ,
and Grover occoupied the same house in
Birmingham,•neither of them having any
family except their wives, and that , on the
morning of the 4th of July his wife left the
premises. Afte4 waiting some time for her
return, only to be disappointed, he went to
Grover's room to enquire for her, but
found no one in. Since that time he has.
neither seen nor heard from either his wife
or Grover, but Tuesday evening' Grover's
wife returned to the house and still remains
there. Upon further investigation of his,
promesis he discovered that he had been
robbed of fourteen dollars, which was all
the money there was in the house at the
time of the elopement. He further 'alleges
that his wife and Grover have been i on .very
intimate terms for some time past and that
he has had cause on several occasions to
doubt her fidelity, and he verily believes.
they have eloped, and taken with them the
The story is not , a very plausible one, but
no doubt the prosecutor is honest,in his con
victions concerning the affair. B e th° partici
have eloped the wife of Grover would per
haps know something about the af►ir, but
it appears she has not been consulted in re
gard to it, and it is hardly possible that she
would give her consent to such atiarrange
rnent. A warrant was issubd for the ac
cused, who it was thought by the prosecu
tor uffght bo caught at the Union Depot
last night 9n their way to the Fast.'

Real Estate and Coliealing,.Agenel.
The real estate and collecting business in
a large city like oars is a very important
auxiliary. and •one which, when properly
conducted, cannot be over estimated or 4, 7 .,
predated too highly. Messrs. Reed &Tus
ten, No. 87 Grant street, are largely en
gaged in this line, and although not a very
long wbile, in - the business, have already
inbuildingup a generOns
nonage which' lirdally• increasing, just in

Pure and Delicious Wines and Wbere to '1
For many years the conniseursinforeign
and domestic wines and liquors haire
cognized.the fact that nowhere else can
they obtain rarer selection or purer articles
than at the old established and first Claiss
house of William Miller; (late Miller. dr,
Iticketson,) Nos. 221 and 223 Liberty street,
corner of Irwin. Enjoying first class fa
cilities for direct importation from the
principal, and most famous foreign wine
marts, their goods must necessarily be su
perior to any passing through second hands
in our home ports. Their stock embraces
all the most. popular wines, such as Cha
teau Lafitti, La Rose, St. Julien,
Medoc, St. Jacques, ranillac, clear and
sparkling Sherries, Haut Sauternes, Cha
teau Sauternes. Latour Blanche white
wines, rich bodied Hock wines, beautiful
; sparkling wines of Hockheimer s superior
'.'quality, all the best brands of pure Chem
paigns, embracing the famous 'Moot &
Chandon, Imperial, Vernezay, Chamblis,
Chambertine, Eapernay, Heidsieck • and
other brands. The firm have also on hand
a fine assortment of general brandies,
whiskies and fancy: liqhors. Their prices
axe as liberal as can be obtained from simi
lar first class houses in the East, and we
bespeak a continuance of tlo large share
of patronage in this line hitherto directed
to this old and reliable house.
On Monday evening about five o'clock,
John Schweitzer, employed at Stamm &
Co.'s chair factory, corner of Cherry and.
Strawberry alleys, met with a very serious
accident. He ' was engaged at a circular
saw, cutting apiece of plank in two, when
one of the separated pieces was accidental
ly struck by a tooth of the saw, causing it
to be thrown backward,striking the unfortu
nate man in the forehead and knocking him
insensible. Dr. Walters was called in im
mediately and successfully performed the
operation of treppanning, removing thirteen
'Diem; of the skull, bones, the patient being
under the influence ot chloroform. The in
jured man is unmarried and the only sup-
port of a widowed mother who resides m
Birmingham. Dr. Walters thinks it possi• .
ble that he will recover with careful:treat;

TliE MINSTELS.—The Opera House Was
filled with a select and fashionable an- l
dience last night, to hear Carncross 6:
Diiie's Minstrels. The olio or minstrel
performance of the troupe is superior to
any ever given in this city, and the varie
ties are unapproachable. Their entertain
'ments are'.entirely different - from those
given by minstrel troupes generally, being
free from the vulgar, gross and low jests
so common with the profession. The corn
- pany is composed of the most gentlemenly
set of men, from Lew. Simmons to the
other "end," we have ever met with in the
show business. A eomplete change of
programme will be made to-night. All
:fun-loving persons should rbmember that
this is positively the last week of their

this city yesterday morning, returning
from their western tour. The anticipated
match between them and the AlleghSny
failed . to come off on account 'of the rain. .
They left for home on the five p. m. train..
The Allegheny was beaten in the contest
at Detroit, on the fourth, the, score standing
at the close of the ninth inning, twenty
two for the Detroit and four for the Alle
gheny. It is probable that a return match
will be played at Union Park in about ten
days, at which the Allegheny boys hope to
retrieve their lostlaureLs. •

at New-ark, Ohio, Was made the "victini of

him by name, and by means of the "bogus
