Last evening, about o'clock, the long threatened and wished for rain came in earnest, and fur a brief space it poured down in torrents. The weather had become ral.iyand unseasonably warm, and the signs of the impending storm were apparent to IIi:avv K wn The fair ladies, and the most casual observer. all pedestrians who thronged the streets, were seen hastening home with the utmost rapidity, ofieu turniug their gaze with wonder and amaze at the dark, threatening sky and the huge black clouds gathering over their heads from the four quarters of the compass, while the wind was as variable as the clouds. Amid the c.mtlieting elements the overcharged found vent in one or two vivid a! hp .sphere ishes of lightning, followed by a territie thunder clap, and then the nun came down thick and fast, almost deluging the streets, allaying at once the heat and dust. The rain, for a few moments, was accompanied with palpable, heavy, continued hail, almost a regular hail storm, which very materially cooled the atmosphere, and made the weather seasonable. Who Would be Blind? Dr. E.

Ollering nothing for sale not of the best description, making no empty promises, and relying upon no mere pretensions, he expect a that his merits entitle him to, and no more.

No. 51 Main street. JACK South side, helweva Third aud Fourth, Iu the Common Council Mr. Vaughan, the old Clerk, called the members to order, saying that the first business was the election of President. Mr. (Jilliss nominated John Barbee, who was chosen by a unanimous vote. On taking the chair, Mr. Barbee tendered his thanks, and said he would endeavor to discharge the onerous duties of thu place with impartiality, and without favor or alfectiou. He hoped that duringtheyeartbc members would exercise the Utmost courtesy towards each other, and that no one would let fall an expression of harshness or reflection. He sincerely hoped that at the end of the year each member could return to his constituents who would say, "Well done, thou gond,and faithful servant." John M. Vaughan was then elected Clerk, for the ensuing year, without a dissenting voice; as a'.BoMr. Thus. Keaugh was chosen to act iu the capacity of Sergeant-at-Arms- . A communication was received from the May- or, and with it the poll books and certificate of the oineers of the late election. His nonor also stated that the reports of the Auditor, Treasurer, &c, would be furthcoming at the earliest practicable moment. The communication was referred to a special committee, composed of Messrs. Wclliuan, Gilliss, and Pomcroy. The President said, at the next meeting of the Council he would announce the Standing Committees for the year. by Mr. Giliiss, appointA resolution, u ing a com mil tee of three from the Common Council and two from the Board of Aldermen, to select a suitable house for the use of the Council, was adopted. After some Utile business of trivial importance the Board adjourned. The Board of Alderman was not organized so readily. Jas. Trabue, Esq., was elected President on the first ballot, and this was succeeded by an exciting contest for the office of Clerk. The following were voted for iu the course of some twenty or more ballots, viz: J. W. Tompkins, Robt. A. Hamilton, Barrett Mulligan, B. H. Smith, and A. Claggett. On the first ballot Hamilton received four votes and Tompkins four. Several times subsequently Mulligan and Hamilton g'd four votes, and Tompkins a similar number, bnt neither having a majority there was no elect on. The contest was prolonged by Alderman Baird who changed his vote whenever an election could have been effected. President Trabue, Petit, and Sargent voted uniformly for Mr. Tompkias, who was finally declared elected by a vote of five to three, as follows: For Hamilton Gunkle, Osborne, and Jefferson 3. For Tompsins President Trabue, Alexander, Petit, Sargunt, and Baird 5. Several persons thought Mr. Baird cast his vote on this ballot for Hamilton, but it was recorded as above. Subsequently Mr. Baird rose to an explanation iu reference to his vote. He said be did vote for Hamilton, and as a bet had been made, aud he had been appealed to, he deemed it neeeessary to say such wis the case. Harvey Seaton was reelec ted Sergeant-at-Armand this was ill the business transacted worthy of notice. The General Council w ill meet again ou Friday night. K?We noticed, a few days since, the robbery of Adams Express Company at Vincennes, lad. Officer Ileauy, the active detective belonging to the Cincinnati police force, with another officer, visited the scene of the robbery, a day or two ago, and made an examination of the safe. We learn from the Cincinnati Commercial that they found that a paml had been taken out of the back door, but a close scrutiny made it apparent that it had been taken out by a person inside the office. They wen also satisfied that the hinges of the safe, from w lich the. money was taken, could not have been broken, without thu door had been opeueiL It was to them evident that the door had been opened with a key, after which the lnnges were broken so that the robbery would appear to have been pcqictrated by an outsider. Tlie result of this close investigation was, that James Reynolds, the express agent at Vinceunc?; was arresU'd and held in bonds of $o,000 for ex- animation.

But w hen he was surrounded by the greater bodv of Bre and smoke, bis horses became frightened and toppled, and it was impossible to move them. Here they remained for a minute or two, the fire roaring aud cracking to a terrific extent, when suddenly, the smoke clearing away, the horses started, aud the driver founi that the great ma-- a of fire had crossed the road a short distance in advance, and was making the most fearful ravages in its track to the right of him. Ho was soon enabled to get entirely out of its path, and felt that he had never before been in so terrible a position. At one time it appeared to him that the flames must entirely surround him aud cut off all means of escape. He hail two f- rnale passengers, and, as may be"suppoed, they were frightened beyond all description.

After this affair Admiral PeiiMud,of the Fremch squadron, iu the Gulf of Mexico, who was at Vera Cruz, addressed a strong letter in behalf of the captured, to the American commander, who replied by saying he knew his business, aud. if the rencamau w as as well advised as to his cun- cerns, they would get on well enough together. There were two vessels taken bv the Saratoo-a- . i and, according to our last advices from Vera Cruz, were to be sent to New Orleans. j This atfair has created a most intense excite- incut in this city. The government of this cap- ital are iu the greatest rage and tribulation, and it is difficult to say what they may do. Fears are entertained that they may vent tueir rage in new atrocities upon the American residents, and this fear is made the stronger by the knowledge of the fact that the British (lovenimeut have named a minister over Mr. Mathew, aud as they supiMjoe this has been done in couseiUeuce of the interest Mr. Mathew has taken in behalf of the unprotected Americans. Their journals have since been filled with the most w holesale abuse of the Americans, and threats of Vengeance. Tiie French Minister, M. de Gabriae, sends by exceedingly strong orders ti the mail of Admiral Penatid instructing him to take part against the Americans. H thescordcrs be listen- ed to, it is clear a collision must at once take place, but it is to be hoped Admiral Penaud will follow the example set him last year by Captain ' Dunlop, in refu.- - iug to obey a mad order given by Mr. Otay, our late representative iu this country. The expedition of Mariu was declared a piratical one by the Government 4f Vera t rnz, and it is w ell known here, by advices from Havana, that the crews and the vessels were all Spaniards, most of them persons who have bjieiit all their lives in the African coast trade, seizing negroes and bringing them to Cuba for a martlet. But even if the crews were honest men, the exjiedi-tio- n altogether cannot claim to be any better than that of Lopez against the Island of Cuba, and for the first time (he Americans have the strongest side of the case w ith the Spaniards. By the last mail from England, we learn the appointment of Mr. Wyke as Minister to Mexico. This appointment, at this time, has had a very bad elleet upon our interests here. The clergy regard it as a special victory, and notice it as such in their journals. They think the appointment of a uew man over Mr. Mathew's head implies a disapproval of Mr. stathew's con- duet, and as Mr. .Vaihew has distinguished him- scll over his predecessors in looking alter Ins own countrymen, and in lending at all times a generous and helping hand to other foreigners who are here without protection, the clergy think this course of conduct meets with disapproval at the Foreign Office.

Mr. M. was finally brought to trial, convicted and sent down to Alton, but tlowere discharged. On the night before M.

Yesterday Cor oner James was notified that Mrs. had tiled under verv suspicious circuiustanct -- , at her residence on West Madison street, .ni l he accordingly held an inquest upon her remains. From the testimony taken upon the inquest it appeared that some time after the departure of her husband, Mrs. M. found herself pregnant, and that she dreaded the remarks w hich her neighbors would make about her having a child while her husband was in the teni ten Gary. It also appeared that some one or two of her neighbors had advised her of the means requisite to procure an abortion, and that finally, through means they were ruuuing at a miserably slow pace l t Uii.c in, continued to g. t a full four m.le distance behind the leading nag, and when the , ce quicki he had to run than anv .f them io get inside the distance flag, which," for nis"t.a kers, did not imr.

Walker, editor of the Laporie Times, as the friend of Mr. Tanner, on the oue side, and Hon. Jonathan W.Gordon, Speaker of the House of Representatives, on the other." The correspondence is unfortunately not well described by the Sentinel. It is very long and rather dull. We cannot think of a more inappropriate word to describe it than "piquant." The amount of it is. that at a recent eonlerence of Election Boards in Indianapolis, .Mr. Jonathan W. Gordon told Mr. Gordon Tanner that belied. Mr. J. C. Walker, in discussing the matter in an intro-- j ductory epistle explaining the correspondence, says : "The difficulty occurred between Messrs. Gor-- j dou and Tanner, wheu the latter could not resent the insult offered without involving a large num-- j ber of excited men in a bloody collision; the for-mer boastingly announced that he held himself, In all respects, accountable for his conduct." There was a good deal of letter writing done, and an etfort made to have an "amicable and honorable adjustment" by " mutual friends." The friends proposed that'" both parties should withdraw all offensive remarks," siuiulLffieously, we suppose, which is the prevalent style where such things are formally done. This was not satisfactory to Gordon Tanner, however, who held that he had not used any otlensive languag And so the adjustment failed, for the reason, as it appears, that no one engaged in the ail'air understood how to manage it i oW.

The citizens have objected to this, not only because of the compe-- I tithm, but because of the demoralizin;; influence thus exerted, aud because it was calculated to make labor d.'irriulin";. In a few years past, fifteen or sixteen public meeting havebeeu held to protest against this practice, aud to secure a change. The last one lor this purpose was held some ago; and the Prison Superintendent was informed that if no change wa-- s made by the lirst of this mouth, they would take matters iu their own hands. Xo change havimr been made, a meeting was hel l on Monday night, at which it was resolved, should the prisoners be sent out of the prison wall to woik again, they would compel them to be taken back. Yesterday nioruiui:, they were sent out to work as usual. The fire bells were run;:, and a large number of the citizens immediately assembled, and proceeded in the direction of the place where the convicts were employed. The authorities of the prison at oaee withdrew the prisoners within the walls; and for the present, the people have triumphed.

Mrs. Burd w;w married at the age of eighteen to Edward Sbippen Burd. He died in September, W. worth over a million dollars. Mrs. Burd, in addition to the alsolule bequest under her husband's will, was entitled to receive the income of nearly all his estate during her life. Though she expended this income profusely in charities, her estate has. nevertheless, grown and t half a million. She spent increased to many thousands of dollars each year in charities, in a quil t way. Speculation is rife on the subject ot the disposition ot her property, but it is generally supposed, from her habits of benevolence while living, that the larger part of it has been left by her for charitable and humane I'U'J. n.uirer. purposes. Intrepidity or a School Gihl. On Satur day morning, the large school building known deas the Cleveland Institute, tex'k fire from fective flue, and was burnt to the ground, The house was insured for 11,000, and the furniture for 2,500. The Herald says : Whilst the southwest wing was wrapped in flames, an alarm was raised thai a girl was in the burning building. It was soon ascertained that Miss Minne Le C'ompte, a young pupil front Canada, w as ut the building, working desperately to save some of the furniture from the flames. A man ran up through the fire to save her, but she refused to go until the property was saved, and ended the controversy by striking the maa in the face, pushing hint out of the room, and fastening the door. As she was now in imminent danger, sheriff Wightmaa and deputy sheriff Beunctt ran up the bUzing stairs, but she refused to let them come near her, and continued throwine the furniture out of the window. Sheriff Wightman at length succeeded in carrying her off to a place ot safety. Miss Le C'ompte. Is quite a young girl, but she possesses unlimited courage. Liverpool Albion says a young lady, the eldest daughter of a well known political baronet, who was so deep a sleeper, that it wa always difficult to wake her ; and in the year lN,"a fire broke out at night in the family mansion, when a male domestic burst in her roeni. and. snatching her as she laid in bed, conveyed her to a place of safety.
