February 23, 1870.

     A slim docket at the Recorder's court yesterday.

     Feet "twinkled" merrily at the Irish ball last night.

     The "square" was crowded yesterday.  Plenty of wood and hay on hand.

     Dr. Dickerson, City Physician, informs us that a colored girl aged twenty years, named Moore, had both her feet frozen the other night.  The doctor will amputate them at the Hospital to-day.

     We are informed by the physicians, that there have been several cases of pneumonia in the city, doubtless caused by the changeful weather we have had lately.

     It is desired by many that Seventh street should be opened, between Main and Walnut streets.  This portion of town is increasing in business, and a communication between the two thoroughfares at this point, would be of great accommodation.

     We are requested to state that the masquerade ball, announced as to be give4n at Frank's Hall, next Friday night, has been postponed indefinitely.  Those having purchased tickets, will have their money refunded by the gentlemen from whom the tickets were received.

     Yesterday the examination of Jenny Redman, alias "Wicked Jenny," which has been progressing for several day s past before Justice G. B. Cravens, was concluded.  Our readers will remember that the prisoner was charged with being concerned with Ike Forbes, in the murder of David Tipton.  The county attorney, B. L. Yeager, summed up for the State, and the prisoners counsel, Mr. H. P. White, made a powerful argument in her behalf.  After some consideration the justice decided to commit the prisoner for trial before the Circuit Court, on the charge of murder in the first degree.
