Attempt to break jail. --An attempt to break out of the city jail was made on Friday night by the inmates of cell No. 4, whose names are Wm. Cummings, (bigamy,) Charley Smith, (forgery,) Thos. Wilkinson, (grand larceny,) and Franklin Richmond, (forgery.) The parties uprooted the floor and got under the jail; but finding the job of getting out by that means rather hard, gave it up, came to the surface, and went to sleep. Wilkinson is serving out a term of six months, preparatory to going to the Penitentiary, to which he has been sentenced. Some of the parties will no doubt be tried before Judge Lyons this week.
