FRIDAY, Jan. 28.—The case of Bassett

atoned and 'concluded. The jury had
not agreed when 'Conn adjourned.
The meat case taken up was that of
Kennedy vs. Schultz, action in case to
recover mcaey alleged to be due and
unpaid. Kennedy wee a stock broker,
and some time since was authorized by
Schultz to Purchase a certain amount of
Erie Railroad ttock. The stock was
bought at 90J4, and as is customary, Mr.
Schultz was required to deposit a thous
and dollars as a margin to protect the
purchaser against lose if the stock should
decline. The sock, it appears, did de
cline, and when the tnousand dollar
margin had been covered by the fall, an
addltionel margin was required, for
which Mr. Schultz gave Mr. Kennedy a
check on the Allegheny Savings Bank.
The check was presented by Mr. Kenne
dy, but was not paid because Mr. Schultz
had no funds in • the bank. The stock
subsequently, declined still lower and
was finally Bald, and this action was
brought to recover the amount of the
check and a further sum aufelelentlio
cover the losses sustained by Mr. Ken

There seems to be no exaggeration in
the wonderful things attributed to the
Burdett Organ, if we are to judge from
the number sold by Kleber dc Bro. The
tone of the Burdett Organ le so touching
and pathetic that even strong men have
been known to abed tears at the per
formance thereon of some simple home
melody; The Burdett furnishes the mu
sic for the heart—the true music, and no
one has ever heard that instrument with
out feeling a strong desire to become the
posessor of one of them. A refined and
mulling lady remarked that "The Bur
dett was the only instrument of its kind
which deserved the name of 'Organ'—all
other makes sounding in her ears like
overgrown Accordeans." Any one inter

A letter of the 26th from Westerville,
Ohio, to the - Columbus Journal, says;
About 1 o'clock this morning the sun:
clone college building of Otterbein UM.
versity: an institution under the auspices
of the United Brethren in Christ, wee
discovered to be on fire. The alarm was
promptly given by ringing the bell of the
burning building. The citizens from all
directions rushed to the scene, but the
flames spread with such fearful rapidity
that It was soon apparent that no efforts
could stay their ravages. By great eau.
tionand peril of life, most of the chemical
apparatus and furniture of several of the
lower rooms were saved. N ly all else
t i
was lost. The college II and cab!.
net and the libraries and f hire of the
three literary societies w ho halls were
located In the building were consumed.
The building li an entire ruin. - Nothing
but the bare walls remain of the once ins.
posing 'structure...,
How the Oro originated!' not known.
The point at which it was first seen, (near
the head of the north stair-Way) remote
from all stoves, strongly excite" suspi.
dons of indendiarism. The loss Is a
heavy one, at least 05,000; of which
$20,000 is covered by Insurance in the
Fireman's Company of Dsyton, Ohio.
Of the books destroyed, besides many
others of great value Was a copy of the
Sinsitic Manuscript of which there were
only six copies in this country.
At a meeting of the Faculty, held at 4
o'clock this morning, it was determined
to continue the Instructions of the Col
lege without intprruption. Recitation
rooms *ill be fitted up at once in the
remaining buildings of the institution, of
which.there are three. No students n eed '
stay away on account of this calamity.
Meanwhile let the many friends o the
institution devise liberal things th at f
braiding may be speedily replaced. .
