A Young Ludy Mlssi pc—Sudden and
Strange Disappearance--Voul - Piny
On Wednesday evening of last week,
Miss Jane Kiley, a'yoting lady residing
in East Birmingham,. came to the city to
visit a relative on High street, where
she remained until aboitt five o'clock in
the evening, when she started for her
home, since whieh time her friends have
heard nothing of her, notwithstanding
diligent search and inquiry has been
been made to discover her whereabouts.
She is a native of Ireland, and having
only been in the city about fbrir months,
is comparatively a stranger, and her
friends fear that she has been lured into
some improper place, where she is re
tained against her will, or has been foully
dealt with in some way. There is not
the 'slightest grounds for believing that
she has gone away voltintarily, or that
she has made way with herself, which
fact tends strongly to increase the sus
picion of foul play. The , young lady is a
cousin of Mr. Henry iihiSwlggin„ a mer
chant on Liberty stiller,' and any infor
mation calculated to throw light upon
thin mysterious athdr, will be thankful

partius, it Appears, were passing along
the street conversing, when they met a
pollee officer, and, just at that moment a
remark was made by Alderman Strain
which the officer understood to be direct
ed to him, and to which he replied.
Some words passed between the parties,
when they separated. A few moments
after, the officer, who is a substitute on
the foroe, met officers' McKee and Coeh
ran,litid informed them of what had oc
curred, whereupon they told him that he
should have arrested Alderman Strain,
Who it appears had made the remark re-
ferred to. They then returned to a saloon
on Fifth avenue, ,where .the Alderman•
bad stopped; and one. of.them went in
a d informed Alderman Strain that he
was wanted outside. He stepped
o tof the door to see what wds :.wanted,
when he was arrested by officer Gibson.
He made no resistance, but started to
the look-up with the officer, and Alder
man Lynch and officers Coohran and
MoKeetollowed. Alter proceeding some
distance McKee made some remark to
Alderman Strain, who replied in a man
ner thatilid not suit him, when, it is al
ledged, he struck the Alderman and
knocked him down. Alderman Lynch
interfered to save his friend, and
he, too, was knocked into the ginner, and
by this time Mr. Thos. Flood, hearin gi of
the affray, ran Into the crowd to see what
was going on, when he received. a blow
also, and was taken into custody as were
also the other Aldermen. The whole
party then proceeded to the watch-house
without further; trouble. On arriving
there, officer Gibson made his statement
to Captain Reed, who, haying.no author
ity to hear the case, could of course do
nothing else 'but retain the parties ar
rested, or require them to leave a deposit
for their, appearance in: the morning.
One hundred dollars was deposited for
the appearance of the three at the May
or's Morning Court, when they were al
lowed to depart.
At the hearing yesterday morning, the
facts, substantially as stated, were ad
duced, whereupon the Mayor stated that
as the officer had not assaulted Alder
man Strain at the time the disorderly
conduct was alleged to have taken place,
but was made afterwards:and at the sug
gestion of other officers, he would dis
charge the cases.
It was alleged that officers McKee and
Cochrane were drunk, but officer Gibson
stated in his testimony that they were
not drunk. Ald i erman Strain then ask
ed to be sworn, and stated positively on
oath that McKee was drunk.
The case did not terminate here, how
ever, as Alderman Lynch made infer
mation before Alderman Strain charging
McKee with assault and battery, and
Alderman Strain made a similar charge
before Alderman Thomas against both
McKee and Cochran. Cochran was ar
rested, waived a hearing and gave
ball for his tippearsuice at Court. Subse
quently another information was made
against both Cochran and Mcßee, before
Alderman Lynch, by Rose Raney, charg
ing them with ' assault and battery with
intent to commit rape, upon which Cosh
ran was arrested and held to bail in the
sum of 'two thousand dollars for his ap
pearance at Court. It appears that in
the early part of the evening, previous to*
the difficulty above referred to, Cochran
and McKee bad arrested Rose for street
walking and taken her tet the lockup,
from which shelves discharged the next
morning by the Mayor, on the ground
that she was not sound in mind. McKee
had not been arrested on either of the
charges at a late hour last night.
So the case stands for the present. and
as it will be investigated in Quarter
Sessions Court, the full facts will there
be developed. Mayor Brush should in
struct his police that they are preservers
of the peace and order of the, city, and
that they must not imagine themselves
so exalted by wearing of the blue as to ar
rest people for the mere bandy
ing of words with themselves,
There are . many men in the po
lice, indeed, the great majority of
the force, who are courteous and gentle
manly, and none'the lmoi efficient there
from. Citizens have rights as well as
policemen, and while the latter should
bo protected at all hazards When die.
charging their legitimate duties, the
former should enjoy full immunity froni
their needless impudence, insult and
tyranny, reuniting oftentimes from per
sonal malice and enmity towards the ob
joct of theit attack.

MIMES. EDITORS: Noticing an article
In the different papers condemnatory of
the Friendship Fire Company, we would
ask permission to make some corrections
in regard ,to the mbnatatoments which
have appeared. It is charged that the
Company is disorganized, which we most
emphatically deny. It Is also charged
that we have taken property belonging
to the city, which is not the case, as the
gum coats, shirts, belts, do., were bought
out of money earned by the active memo
hers of the Company, and not collected
as represented. In regard to the Prize
Hose Carriage taken by the Company,
we would state that it was presented to
the Company' by the 'Ladies' - floidiers'
Monumental Fair, the money for which
was collected for the Fair and not for the
Company. Again, it is charged that the
Company could not be relied upon for
service hereafter, whi6h we`state waanot
the case, as they_had been , sleeping at the
Engine House ati mail, and were as
willing as ever to do service. As regards
the allegation that the Company have
threatened dire vengeance against any
persons taking charge of the House
as a Company, we simply state
that it is false. - The tire committee
disbanded the company and closed
the house - without assigning any
.cause for so doing, which we regard as
rather a queer proceeding nn their part.
In conclusion we deaire to state a great
majority of the members sustain the ac
tion of. the. Company thus far, and we
would state that instead of nine mem
bers being the cause of the trouble none
are, and that the members who vacated
the house and took charge of the Com
pany's property are in a large majority,
and are determined to raise amindepend

Fatal AeclAtent—Anstatit Death.
Last evening, about six o'clock, John
Mcilherron, a driver in the employ of
James Mawhinney, brick maker, met
instant dead( in °the following manner:
He was driving his team of three horses,
drawing a wagon heavily loaded with
sand, up Sixth avenue, near Cherry
alley, being seated on the wheel horse,
where, from excessive intoxication, he
lost his balance and fell to the ground
and the front wheel of the wagon passed
overlie neck, breaking it and killing
him Instantly. His body was carried to
Dick's undercaking establishment, where
Coroner Clawson proceeded to hold an
inquest, which was adjourned over till
to-day. The deceased Was an Irishman
about thirty years of age and enjoyed
good repidation, He leaves a wife and
two children. The' painful news was
not broken to his widow, as she is in an
extremely delicate condition, and evil
consequences were expected' to result
from the shook which the awful an
nouncement would Impart. The de
ceased resided at Shingiss street, Hard
scrabble, in the.old Eighth , ward.
Our young friends of the tint Presby
terian Church of this city, ; and their
friends, both young and old, are expect
ing to have a right good anniversary
time this evening. The Sunday school
will be closing up Its year with prizes; •
recitations, reports, speeches, songs, and
lastly a most elaborate representation of
striking scenes In the "Progress" ofittin
yan's Pilgrim. The pupils will sing
something now,and then to cheer the good
man along the way. Altogether, we ex
pect a most unique entertainment, fresh,
original and.attractive, yet such as is ap-•
propriato to a place dedicated to the wor
ship of Got,. We hope the pastor and
superintendent will be encouraged by a
large and prompt assemblage, the hour
being fluid at seven o'clock for the sake
of younger pupils.
The closing exercises of the winter
term of the Western •Theofogical Semi

exercises were of great interest. After
the 'usual introductory exercises,. con
ducted by Rev. Hoak, Mr. J. H. Mont

ered the valedictory address which. was,
replied to by Mr. R. - Wilson, of the
middle class. Following these exercises,
Dr. Elliott presented the diplomas to
the graduates, fourteen in diUnbeire Wiith
a few well-timed and appropriate re
