Many more are in custody, and some twenty warrants were issued this morning for the arrest of others. The cells of the City Hall were found too small for the accommodation of the throng, and the gates of the main passage way in the basement were closed, in order to provide room for them. This morning the neighborhood of the City Hall was crowded with those who had friends implicated in the previous day's proceedings, and others, by far the most numerous, who were attracted thither by curiosity.

This morning Mayor Lambert, Judge Blatch Ley, and Ald. Barnard, received complaints against the parties arrested, is Justice Smith's court room; admitted those to bail who could procure it and committed those who could not. Two men, one of whom is named Boyne, were discharged. The regiment on duty during the day was the 14th infantry under command of Col. Jesse C. Smith. They were stationed at the armory until ordered to main street. It is composed of the following companies:

Franklin Guard, Captain Baldwin.; National Guard, Captain Sprague; Grenadiers, Captain Burnett; Steuben Guard, Captain Schepper.; Emmet Guard, Captain Nugent; Shield Guard, Captain McCarty. The City Cadets, Capt. Edmonds, the City Light Guard, Capt. Clark, Ringgold Horse Guard, Capt. Ubran were also ordered out, but with the exception of the Cadets did not show themselves. We have thus compiled all the incidents which have come to our knowledge, and the public can draw their own conclusions.
