R , for damages to his property by reason of the approach to the bridge over the Michigan Centra! tiacks, was to have been tried in the U. S. District court at Detroit yesterday, but was rhanged and placed at the loot of the docket when it was found that the city was ready to fight the case. Tuesday the representativas of the Michigan Central were in the city holding a cor.8ultation with the city's representative on the case, as to some plan of action. As Mr. Henning was in the city at the same time, i' was rumored that there would an be a'tempt made to compiomise the case. If -ueh a move was contemplated no offer has been mude tne city, ond it would be useless to make it, as the authorities do not believe that Mr. Henning can prove any damage to his property. On the oiher hand it is tbought that the pruperty bas been impr ved iostead of damaged, by the cbanges wLi h have been made in its surroundings.

A hundred eyes were directed towards the young man, and fifiy people were vainly eadeavoriug to smother a laugh, s they saw the sugatestiveness of the text. As he espressed himself a'terwards, $100 would be no inducement to him to try that expe'ience over again.
