The Ypsilantian thus describes a recent raid in that city: Monday evening, the members of the council after adjournment went in a body, accompanied by officers, on a tour of inspection. They visited the disreputable house to which we called attention last week, west of the stand tower, and another on South Hamilton street, at each of which they found several inmates, and a number of young men. The scattering was tremendous. Through doors and windows they fled in w0d dismay, in one or two cases not waiting to raise the sash. They sped away through the orchards and plunged through raspberry patches in ingloriouspanic. One noble youth was found skulking under a bed, and pulled out in a state of mind that may possibly be imagined. They were all let go with solemn admonitions, and the depraved women were notified to leave the city within twenty-four hours. The graceless fellows who were caught there should bear in mind that their names are written down, and that their security from public disgrace will only be found in their future good behavior. It will be well for them if they appreciate the leniency which permitted them this time to escape arrest.
