DETKOIT, Mich., March United steamer, City of Detroit, of the Detroit and Cleveland line of steamers, went on a rock at the Lime Kilns crossing in the Detroit river at o'clock this lug a fearful atorm. The shock stove a hole in her bottom and she gradually sank to the bottou in 20 feet of water. The eteauier had 70 passengers and 125 tons of freight on board. The was no commotion among the passengers, as few were aware anything had hap- pened until all danger had passed. The passengers were taken off by the steamer, lliverside.aud returned to this city this morning. The vessel lies on the bottom in 20 feet of wa- ter and wreckers have been sent from Detroit to raise her. The extent of the damage can not be estimated at this time, as the electric lighting machinery, the dining room furnishings and other valuable equip- ments of the steamer are below thesub- merged line. The vessel is valued at TRYING TO SAVE SMITH'S NECK. The BUI to Grant Him n Hew Trlnl until Tliurscluj- COLUMBUS, March The bill to grant Isaac Smith, the con- demned murderer, a new trial, came up as a special order in the house this morning and was postponed until Thursday.

BALTIMORE.March I have been completed here to give the The Italian Minister Called Home on Account of the New Orleans Trouble WASHINGTON, March Unit- ed Fava, the Italian minister, has been recalled from the United States by his governmen on account of dissatisfaction in connection with the New Orleans aflair. Baron Fava called at the state department to-day and withdrew his passport and other papers. The affair of the Italian legation are now tempo rarily in charge of Marquis Imperial who has authority to transact cnrreii business only. that the prosecution waa to proceed. Marriott asked for a little time to look up the statutes and then, he asked to have the hearing postponed until some time next week. Geddes objected and insisted on- an, immediate hearing. Marriott insisted that he had not had time for preparation and preferred to have the hearing continued until after the election. Geddes wanted to know what the election has to do with the case and when the election is to be held. He was informed that it will be next week. Geddes then insisted that the election in no concerned this case and he did not want the hearing postponed a week on that account. The court held that the privilege of continuance had never been refused anyone and that the defendants were entitled to a continuance. He added, further that the affidavit was defective in that it did not set forth that Batter- son and Motter "unlawfully" keep and exhibit for gain, gambling devices, etc., the word "unlawful" being omitted in the affidavit which render- ed all proceedings so far void and of no effect. The mayor declared he would not incur further costs by prosecuting under the defective affidavit and there- fore this action was dismissed. A corrected affidavit was produced instanter to which Funk was sworn. Funk was also sworn to another affidavit demanding that a search warrant be issued nd the gambling tools and devices by the officers and brought into ourt. Mayor McCrory absolutely re- ised to issue a warrant on this affida- it, because, he is not necessary. Warrants were issued for the re-ar- est of Batterson and Motter which larshal Lemon served this morning, 'he hearing was set for to-morrow morning at 9 o'clock. But why should Mayor McCrory re- use to issue a search warrant? Why ues he consider it unnecessary to ring the tools and devices of gamblers uto court as evidences against them? The NEWS yesterday quoted a little aw which if rigidly enforced against ae gamblers wilf put them where they an play checkers with their nose vithout "limit" or "bluff. Here is a little more law from the stat- tes: Section 7120. Magistrates named in section 106 (justice of the peace, mayor or police uilge) may issue warrants to search any Forlany gaming table, stabliahment, device, or apparatus kept or xhibited for the purpose of unlawful gam- ng. or to win or gain money or other prop- rty, or for any money or property won by inluwful gaming. Section 7124: When the warrant is exe- uteil by the seizure the property or hingsdescribed therein, the property or hinysfhall be safely, kept by the magis- rate to be used as evidence. But Mayor McCrory having refused o issue a warrant for the seizure of iatterson'9 gambling tools would seem o indicate that he does not require the exhibition of the machinery and de- 'ices Battersou has been using for ears to prove that he is a professional ;atubler. Perhaps Mayor McCrory cnows without proof that Batterson is _ gambler for Batterson is the gambler who has boasted of having "put up for avors shown." So far as Motter is concerned the talk about his being a partner with Batterson is a "blind." That Motter s a professional gambler this paper has s'.i1- he is Batter- sou's partner is a different thing. Bat- erson has occupied his present den in he Dicbson block, at the corner of Vlain and Third streets, for a number of years. He pays the rent and owns all the poker tables, chairs, checks and the other gambling devices Motter is simply nis "dealer" or banker" for a per cent, of the "rake oft and winnings. Motter and Bat terson are equally amenable to the law but it does not require the exhibition of tools and gambling outfit to prove that Motter is a gambler. Unless Mayor McCrory knows or has persona' knowledge that Batterson is a profes sional gambler and has been one for years, why should he refuse to issue a warrant for the seizure of property that would be a conclusive proof? BARNETT BRASS WORKS. A Change in Ownership and Manage- Hew Officers. At a meeting held last night the Barnett Brass Works Company was a large amount of stock in "the concern has changed hands. John H. McLain, president of the Mc- Lain Machine Company, of Canton, is the moneyed man of the new concern and owns three-fourths of the capital stock. W. E. Allington disposed of all his stock and C. W. Derby a part of his stock to Mr. Mctain. The trans- fer of stock was not signed till 5 o'clock last evening. Of the new concern Mr. McLain was elected president and treasurer; John Harvey, who was pres- ident of the preceding concern, was elected vice president and William Barnett was elected secretary. Mr. Allington assumes all liabilities .incurred from March to date, and Mr. Derby lias exclusive charge cf the collection of assets. PERSONAL MENTION. Dan Carr is at Cleveland to-day.
