forgave the crime and besought the se.

One night, la the year 18d7, being In

you to visit her immediately." As soon

that she, by her screams, had attractedi

"Oh y, Immediately: call one Immedi

following painful truths: The girl was
unmarried, bar name was Ellen -;
that her father and mother were living
and well to do in the world. Her seducer's
intention was to hide her shame, and
with this object in view be sent her to
the hones where I found her.
The unfortunate girl had been loved
and tenderly caressed In her childhood;
petted and adored as she bloomed Into
womanhood; sent from a mother's watch

a fashionable boarding school to com

There were two physicians present and
it was only. proper for me to lead in a
short prayer. Holding her hand and
about to leave, she said very feeble':
"Come again tele afternoon." I visited
her at four o'clock, and as I was passing
up one stairs her nurse told ma "She is
altogether linOollSelesill and will not

and being about to kneel, ahe opened her
eyes and turned them upon her nurse,
who understood that ahe wished to
speak. Closely pressing her ear to the
sick girl's lips, the mime addrezeing me
said, "Stop, she wiaheethe other nurse to

nurse was called in. We knelt, and spa
unaccustomed to weep, wept then, and
ears probably unaccustomed to hear

being over, ono of the nurses, with her
ear to her lips to catch the faint whisper

"See says, nurses, pray for yourselves."

that It would bathe last farewell of earth,
I asked, "Ellen, is Jesus precious to son
now?" She faintly whispered in my ear,
"He Is precious, precious to my tont"—

this the officers were Instructed
not to ex cote the warrant until
last night, 'after the ball, which
It wai t 7own would. be hold there, was
under y, end then to make a raid on the
establis merit and arrest every person
found on the premises. Ica-accordance
with these Instructions' the °dicers soled
and last night about half past eleven
o'clock, gaesta having assembled to the
number of seventy-five or one hundred,
nod dancing having commenced, and was
going on, as it is alleged quietly and or
derly, the pollee Made a deecentopon the
place. The alarm was given and a scene
of confusion ensued.. The gas wartnin
ed off and the. room- and its occupants,
polite end - all, were In total darkness.
A rush was made for the cloak room by
' the females and there was I "mixing"
up of wrappings which, In all probabil-
IV, will never be "unmixed." The men
made a break for the door, there
being but one leading from the ball
room, belt It was strongly guarded. By
this time the calms had sineoeeded In
"atriklng a light," after which a scrim
mage ensued between two - of the
gallants and a number of officers.
The Mileers overpowered the two, and
they, with others on . the 'premises, .premisas,
were taken in custody, when a proem.
Mon was formed and the prisoners
marched to the lock-up.
-There were eighteen women and twenty
five men incarcerated behind the bars of.
the loathsome cells of the tombs. Near
ly all gave Captain Reed fictitious names
and thus strove to secure from publica
tion their disgrace. Such a gala scene
we have seldom witnessed in the tyran
nical quarters, of soiled justice. The
women were depraved enough to make
night hideous . with their loud and' o.
famatery . language against the pollee
and all who happened to look In upon
them lit their misery. The men took
the .mstier more philosophically, and
some of the wealthier Insisted that they
would carry their cases to tee court and
demand reparation from the hands of
the authorldea who had ordered their
arrest. While nearly all, both men and
women, wore perfectly sober, we can
hardly hope that any one of them will be
found pomessed'adth courage and money
enough to carry Into a court his very
plain cause for complaint and demand
tor impartial jusaro.
After a short time had elapsed the
friends of the arrested put in an appear
ance and watches and chains, and •rings
and greenbacks, and what not, were
"sPcated" on the Captain's books to se
cure the release of the prisoners on con
dition of appearing this morning to an
swer a charge, which under the law
cannot oe sustained unless something
akin to perjury. is committed by the
arresting parties, or a stretch of muni
cipal authority is made by . the Mayor,
who, wa believe has made a blind error
in ordering the descent. The larger
majority of the prisoners were left in the
tombs ell night, and this morning will
be arraigned to answer a charge of
So for as the arrest of Hunter is con
earned we have nothing to say. as there
was an Information based - on the osta of
Robert Hague, Chief of Polk», charging
him with keeping a disorderly house,
and surely Robert knows the fact, or he
would not have sworn to It, for Robert le

of the persons found there engaged in.

The ordinance fMm which the anther.

13, Page 2D, of the city' digest, approved

Is an .arilst of extraordinary power and

known to fame In this country. Spirited,
full Of euttineleam and having full
knowledge of all that an organ
is capable of producing, he ham
mers away at the keys with a grace
aud • saaa which astonish his auditors,
and produces music that goes down deep
