Dr. ACKLEY slipped on some ice in his yard last Wednesday and broke some of the bones in his right hand. We learn that Captain S. A. BURNAP has sold his Salt Property to some eastern men. January 21st is the day fixed for the sale of lands and town lots on which the taxes have not been paid. Delinquents will please take notice. Mr. John HALL has resigned the Presidency of the Clifton Nail Co, and H.H. SWALLOW was elected President and Treasurer, George E. DOWNING superintendent and Sec't. Mr. Joseph SILVERMAN, formerly of the firm of S. SILVERMANN & SONS of this city, has gone into the wholesale liquor house of M. Frank & Co., of Cincinnati. In the Third Ward of this city, there was one German, one Irishman, one Welshman, one Colored man and eighteen Americans, voted against the Railroad on Saturday last. Jailor BRADFIELD has lost a valuable boarder. Wm SWICHER, the Middleport wife-beater, having served out his forty days in the county jail, was on Monday last discharged from custody.

OSBORN, of this city, died very suddenly on Monday, from the effects of having an arm amputated. Miss HOFFMAN fell and hurt her arm about a year since, and lately gangrene commenced, rendering amputation necessary at the shoulder joint. The operation was performed by Drs. HOFF and SMITH; but she only survived it some two hours. She was about forty years of age. She was from Columbus, Ohio. Mr. Donald MCDONALD, an overseer at the Excelsior Salt Furnace, in this city, on Friday night last, fell into one of the "Grainers" of that establishment, and before he could get out, was severely burned over a considerable portion of his person.
