Attempted Burglary. The chicken thieves and other kinds ot midnight marauders seem ; to -have taken quite a fancy to the vicinity of Seventh and Mulberry streets. On Sunday night some ono of the gang made an attempt to break into - the dwelling house of Mr! J. J. Hopkins, near the corner of these two) streets, and camo near being successful The sash las ten cr was forced, but there happened to be a nail in i tho window which the thief could not 'get at, and by this means the attempt was frus trated. The appearance of the tracks beneath the window Indicated almost positively that tho would-be burglar was a woman.- I " " Board of Aldermen. i - i be Board of Aldermen met in regu lar session last night.

Eagles' Island. ' A friend.who is one of the grey breads ot the city, remarking upon our article Dt vesterday in regard to Castle Ilavnes. naa called our attention to another error of frequent occurrence in regard to the name of a certain locality in this vicini Uy. which we hasten to correct. He that the island immediately in front of the city and which of late years has been persistently called "Eagle1 Island should bo "Eagles' " Island. It was formerly the i property of Mr. Joseph Eagles and derives its name from that gentleman. We plead guilty of the fac: ol having ourselves unwit tingly aided in extending the error through the columns of the Review, but we will endeavor to be more care ful in the luture. Our friend says that to call it "Eagle" Island indicates it as a roosting place for that fabled bird ot Jove whereas not one of that species has eycr been known to build a nest within its limits. It derives its name from its former proprietor, as stated, and should be called Eagles' Island and never Eagle.
