The Jury.?In the Criminal Court on yesterday morning, the jury in the Gardi ner case, in a note, informed the Judge that, after mature deliberation and a free interchange of opinion, they could not niake up a verdict; that a portion of them are young men depending on their busi ness for the support of themselves and families ; and that, on account of sick ness in some of their families, their pres sence at home is needed. Under these circumstances they trusted that there would be an agreement between the coun sel 011 both sides, so that the jury might be discharged. The Court.?It is a hard case, I must say. Mr. Carlisle.?There are others who are dependent on their profession for a living: and it is not very agreeable to go into an other trial, to last two months.

"But,"said Jenny, deprecatingly, "may it not be the duty of a woman occasion ally to do ridiculous things in vindication of the rights of her sex ?" " Certainly," said Dan, " it is one of woman's rights to be ridiculous, if she pleases ; that is to say, if she has a * mis sion9 to be ridiculous." This unexpected turn of conversation set them both to laughing, and Dan wound up the conversation by stating it to be his impression and belief that Jenny had no natural aptness at being ridicu lous. Jenny wanted to know how, in that case, he had happened to take a fancy to her when she was doing a mis sion. Dan said he did not take any fancy?it took itself. Ferguson, soon after their arrival home, presented Jenny with a silver tea-set, and Jenny, in various domestic and social pleasures, before the next convention, lost sight of her rights entirely. It was soon rumored that Mrs. Ferg...

The Jury.?"The long agony is over" so far as the jury in the Gardiner case ^vas concerned. Judge Crawford, after careful consideration, and hearing the opinions of the council for and against the defendant, came to the conclusion this morning to discharge the Jury. Mr. Henshaw, deputy marshal, con ducted the gentlemen into the Court room, where they were asked if they had made up a verdict. The foreman replied that they had not, and were not likely to do so if they remained till Christmas. Judge Crawford made some very appro priate remarks to them concerning their privations, expressed his regret that they had remained shut up so long, and dis charged them. We understood one of the Jurors to say that they stood nine for acquittal ond three for conviction. Penitentiary..?In the United States prison in this city, there are confined at hard labor, nin...

License Question and tUe Clergy.?The debaters of this question will have time and talent enough to its thorough dis- | cushion. Some of our leading clergymen are about to enter the field, and we sup pose that they will be opposed by able nun. It is a subject that requires con sideration, and one that might have been considered long since by the Councils, had it suited their purpose. But it has Km neglected : and now, when their time is at hand, they pass resolutions to bind those who are to succeed them.

EVENING STAR A True Picture. The Boston Bee, in some excellent re marks on the evil tendencies of modern Abolitionism, well concludes thus: "Whereis Abolitionism going ? Plain ly to its grave. But not without gaspings, gnashings, and all manner of deathly struggles. Its proselytes will not easily give up the ghost in death, any more than they have given up phantoms while living. "Life is tenacious in every thing that is foul and monstrous. It will be so here. But it must come to it. Its doom is fixed. It dwindles yearly. Its num bers to-day are far less than five years ago. Men of sense who once swelled its ranks, hoping to do some good to the slave, long ago found the means proposed by Abolitionism as entirely without good effect. They found the men engaged in the cause to be heartless bevond ac count, and as unprincipled and selfish and mercenary, as they were heartless. Hence the party shrunk into a faction, and from faction into into a shadow, till it is now the disgust and disg...

EVENING STAR Picture of a Fashionable Young Lady. We never like to say or do any unkind thing to the ladies, but if it happens that any of our readers should see themselves in the mirror we place before them, we can only hope that they will strive to change the original before they take another look at themselves. In the city we have plenty of such ladies, but in the country they are seldom met with: She sits in the lighted parlor, And waits for the tardy beaux ; She plays with her littlo finders, And trots with her little toe*; She calls for the Spanish poodle, She calls for the China fan, She kisses the long-eared pupjsy, And wishes it was a man. Her mother stays in the kitchen, Dressed in her coarse attire, She's freezing over the ices, And roasting over the fire? She makes some nice confection, Some delicate kind of a treat, Of creams and various jellie.1, For her daughter's beaux to eat. A Man in Disguise.?Last summer a (reputed) female was going the rounds, instructing ladies ...

EVENING STAR. LOCAL AFFAIRS. Fire Riot.?Last night, wliilc the fires in the First Ward were raging, the Per severance Fire Company was attacked on the corner of 17th street and the Avenue by a party of "ftiwdies, who had for their rallying cry "Oh, you Blue Dicks!" An attempt to take possession of the Com pany's apparatus was prevented by the interposition of officers Boss and Ilandy, who were on it he spot. When the assault was made by the rowdies, a crowd of citizens sufficient to have taken the rowdies, instead of rallying to the assis tance of the officers, dispersed and left them alone to make arrcsrs or grumble at them if they did not. Three were arrested and held to bail for court. During the disturbance several pistols were tired, one of them Ly officer Ilandy, which did no other zood than the scattering of the ganpr.
