The town hall -was filled last evening by
a large audience te hear a panegyric upon
St. Patrick, delivered by the Rev. D. I.
McDerraett, of Summit Hill, Pa. The
reverend orator, in an eloquent and ele
gant manner, related many facts in the
life of the apostle of Ireland new and in
teresting te his audience. He also took
occasion te refer te the misrule of Ireland
by the British government and depicted
the terrors of the penal cede, se long the
curse of that island. The present suffer
ings of the people were referred te with
much feeling and the sympathies of our
people evoked in their behalf.
The Shawnee furnaces are new two of
them at least in full blast and turning
out daily a large quantity of first-class pig
iron. The Shawnee rolling mill is also
filled with busy life and manned by a
cheerful and happy crowd of workmen.
We are glad te record this fact and leek
for a season of prosperity te the workers
in iron who were for se long a period in
enforced and helpless idleness.

An Old Easter Egg.
Ames Miley, saddler, showed us this
morning an old Easter egg which has a
history. The egg was decorated fifty-five
years age by David Miley, Ames Miley's
father, who was a wheelwright and then
resided in Washington borough. On one
side of the egg is drawn a mill with two
large arches under it through which the
tail-race water is supposed te pass. The
mill is surmounted by a spire, the
weather-vane of which is a fish, very like a
shad. The mill is flanked en either side
by Lombardy poplars, trees that were held
in high esteem in the olden time. Te the
rear of the mill, en the opposite sid of the
egg is a garden in which flowers are grow
ing one of them being a eoed representa
tion of a tulip, and the leaves of
another looking like toeacco
leaves, a plant that was cultivated
te sonie extent in Washington, even at
that early day. On the centre of the
larger end of the egg is scratched a double
white star, and surrounding the star are
the following letters and figures : " D. M.
B. S 1825." " D. M." are the initials of
David Miley, and 1825 is the year when
the egg was scratched. The " B. S." is
supposed te be the initials of seme ether
This egg was found about a dozen years
age in a secret drawer in an old-fashioned
desk, and from that time until about two
age was carefully preserved in his safe. Twe
years age Mr. Miley took it from the safe
and put it in his coat pocket for the purpose
of showing it te some friends. Forgetting
that it was in his pocket he "sat down en
it" crushing it into fragments. Gathering
together the peices, he placed them in the
hands of Charles R. Frailcy, esq., with
a rcquest that he should mend the
egg if he could. Mr. Frailey took a large
cork and cut it down te the shape and size
of the broken egg, as nearly as he could
judge its proportions, and then piece by
piece placed the fragments en the surface
of the cork. There were 50 fragments and
Mr. Frailey, with much labor and skill,
succeeded in gettiug each one in its place,
restoring the egg te its original appearance.
It is highly prized by Mr. Miley.
In argument court, the cases en the

A DEAD BABY.
CONCEALMENT OF THE BODY.
The Tragic Revelation of a Bex of Clethes.
A Sickening Spectacle Christian Street the
Scene of Much Incitement.
It has been ten years since Jehn Denning
left Ireland and brought te this country
his two daughters then girls of 12 or 14
years of age ; six years age he
and his second wife, their step
mother, returned te the old country where
Mrs. D. died and whence the husband
and father returned te Lancaster just
before Christmas, 1879. He is new working
below Quarry ville. One of his daughters is
Mrs. Jehn A. Weimer, residing at 43
Seuth Christian street, and the ether is
Miss Christina Denning, who has been
employed recently as domestic in several
highly respectable families in Lancaster.
She has always borne a geed character and
when about six weeks aee or less she fell
sick at her place of employment and re
mained sick for a week, the occurrence
gave rise te no scandal.
A short time afterwards, a few days be
fore Valentine day, she left her last place
and one evening brought her clothes te her
sister's in a coach and desired te pack
them there in such a way that they would
be easily accessible or removable if de
sired. Her sister procured for a her good geed
sized dry goods box at the New Yerk
store ..tad they were packed therein.
In a week or two afterwards and about
a month age she called at the house of
Jehn M. Medingcr, marble cutter, Ne. 39
Seuth Christian street, and said her
brother-in-law would net allow her te
keep her clothes at his house and threat
ened te tear them up and she begged Mrs.
Medinger te allow her te store them en
her garret. Mrs. M. consented and
Miss Denning had them brought ever
and a carpenter cut the box down te get it
en Mrs. Medingcr's garret where it re
mained until yesterday
Meanwhile Christina, or "Phenie" as she
is called, secured employment with another
highly respectable family, where she is yet
working. On Sunday she visited Mrs.
Medinger and disturbed the contents of the
box, en pretext of taking some clothes
from it. Since then Mrs. M. has noticed a
very offensive odor from the box, becoming
stronger daily, until yesterday 6he and
Mrs. Weitzcl made an inspection of the
contents and satisfied themselves that they
included the decomposing remains of a
newly born babe. Mr. Weitzel made
further examination, took the box into the
yard and found the dead child in a smalt
wooden box, surrounded with a woman's
wrapper and aprons.
The coroner was notified te-day, and
summoning a jury composed of E. McMel
len, Brinten J. Carter, J. Kahler Snyder,
Clayten F. Myers, T. F. McElligetand H.
II. Ilensel, and attended by Dr. Wm.
Cotnpten, made an inspection of the box
and contents in Mrs. Medinger's yard.
After taking out a large quantity of
clothing, skirts, dresses and very much
soiled underwear, a small wooden starch
box was found, and after enduring a hor
rible stench the investigators discovered
in it, wrapped in white cloths, the body
of a female infant, fully developed, sup
posed te have been born four or five weeks
age and very much decomposed. Dr Dr
Compten tested the lungs and concluded
from his examination that the child had
never breathed ; though the advanced
stage of decomposition materially inter
fered with full and satisfactory tests.
The jury heard Mrs. Medinger, Mrs.
Weimer, Mrs. Weitzcl and Mr. Weitzel te
the foregoing effect and adjourned te meet
at the court house te-morrow evening at
7$ o'clock when the supposed mother of
the child will be called te testify.
Upen further inquiry we find that Miss
Denning usually gees by the name of
"Jesephine '" and was known as " Phenie "
among the families with whom she lived.
She is about 22 years of age.
At the suggestion of the district attor
ney Officer Tittus made complaint against
her befere Alderman Wiley for conceal
ment of the death of a bastard child ; a
warrant was issued and she will be arrest
ed for a hearing.
The body of the infant was sent te the
almshouse for burial.
When informed of the discovery of the
body the girl seemed quite astonished;
and makes no explanation of the circum
stances of the case, pending a legal investi
gation. The family with whom she new resides
and where she has lived for several weeks
had no idea whatever of this epi
sode in her experience ; and the
family whose service she quit after her
wcck et illness stare tnat tiieugu circum
stances afterwards developed pointed te
the cause of her illness, it is pretty certain
that the child was born and concealed
elsewhere than in her room at their house.
She had manifestly had some such experi
ence, but the exact nature of it, or what
disposition she made of the evidences of it,
was a mystery te them.
The girl gives the name of the child'B
father, says he would have married
her, but that he had no work and
couldn't support her. She declares the
child was still-born ; her accident being
caused by a fall a statement which has
Occultation of Mars.
The beautiful clear sky of last evening
afforded astronomers and ethers interested
in the movements of the heavenly bodies a
delightful opportunity te witness the oc
cultation of Mars by the moon. Seme
persons with geed eyes could see the
planet close te the dark side of the moon
almost up te the moment of its disappear
ance ; and all could easily see it with the aid
of a common opera glass. It remained be
hind the moon for nearly an hour and a-half
and then emerged en the bright side, first
as a mere speck, gradually growing
brighter as its distance from the moon in
creased. There will be another occulta
tion of Mars en the 15th of April, but en
account of the constant shifting of the
position of the planets it will net be visi
ble in the northern hemisphere.
Anether Yerk Burglary.
On Tuesday night the residence of Mr.
Michael Overmiller, residing at Glatfelter's
station, N. C. R. W., south of Yerk,
was entered with intent te rob. Mr.
Overmiller was awakened by the noise
made by the burglar and drove him off

Doctors vs. Quacks.
The suits against C. A. Greene, Jehn
Campbell and Mrs. Harriet Sweeney, for
violating the statute, prohibiting persons
from practicing medicine unless they have
graduated and been granted a diploma by
some reputable college of medicine ; or in
lieu of such diploma had been practicing
medicine successfully eight years before
the passage of the act of Assembly, and
been regularly licensed by the prothono prethono protheno
tary of the court of common pleas, was
heard before Alderman Spurrier this after
noon, the hearing attracting te the alder
man's office quite a number of interested
Dr. R. M. Bolenius was the first wit
ness, ile testified that he was a member
of the Lancaster medical society. At the
meeting in February a commit
tee was appointed te notify the
district attorney of the violation
of the act of Assembly. The committee,
consisting of Drs. Bolenius, Welchans and
Blackwood, investigated the matter and
found that Dr. Campbell, Mrs. Sweeney
and Dr. Greene were treating patients.
Witness had no knowledge whether any
of the accused had or had net legal diplo
mas. On cress examination witness said
be had never seen any of the ac
cused treat patients ; had seen Dr.
Campbell sell worm medicine en market ;
don't knew hew long Dr. Campbell has
been treating disease or practising medi
cine in this state ; never met Dr. Greene ;
was once in Greene's office ; went there te see
if he had a diploma; saw a certificate
hanging en the wall.
Dr. Greene wanted te knew if the wit
ness, as one of the committee was the
prosecutor, but the question was objected
te, and Alderman Spurrier said that Con
stable Eichholtz was the prosecutor.
Gee. W. Eaby, deputy clerk of court, tes
tified that none of the accused had taken
out a license te practice medicine in this
Dr. Gee. R. Welchens corroborated Dr.
Bolenius as te the action of the medical
society. All that he knew of the accused
in connection with their practice of medi medi
cine was that he had seen Dr.
Greene's advertisements, and Mrs.
Sweeney's sign, and Dr. Campbell's
worm medicine ; had seen him sell it en
the street ; don't knew anything about the
merit of Dr. Campbell's medicines.
Dr. Henry Carpenter testified that he
had prescribed for a boy for epilepsy ; he
had taken medicine prescribed by Dr.
Campbell; it was a powerful drug of a nar
cotic character ; it produced violent conges
tion of the brain and the boy fell into one
fit after another, and lay at the point of
death; knew nothing personally of D;
Greene but knew Mrs. Sweeney te be an
errant Charlaten and quack ; he knew
positively that persons had been prescribed
for by her, but he declined te tell their
names ; he could net de se without violat
ing professional confidence ; never saw
Mrs. Sweeney prescribe for a patient ; has
iuformatien from respectable people.

Lecture by Dr. Greene.
The interest created net alone in medical
circles, but throughout the community, by the
recent action of the Lancaster medical society
in instituting legal proceedings against several
well-known practitioners en the charge of a
violation of the statute governing the practice
of medicine and snrgery. is enhanced bv the
announcement, elsewhere printed, of a lecture

Dr. C. A. Greene, who recently hung out his
"shingle" in thl city, proposes en this ec
casien te expound his views en tne subject of
medicine, the success he has achieved in the
treatment et se-called hopeless cases of all
forms of disease, and says he will prove him
sell te have been a consistent and aggressive
opponent of quackery and empiricism tn what
ever shape. His special invitation te the mem
bers of the medical society has the snap of de
fiance in it. and there will doubtless b" a large
turnout of citizens te see and hear this latc-t
phase of the contest between the regulars and
the alleged "empirics."
Lawrence Barrett. When the chart was
opened this morning for the sale el scats for

he appeared in this city two years age, there

and the announcement of his coming is hailed
with pleasure. Hamlet is among his greatest
roles, his reproduction of the character of the
melancholy Dane being pronounced by critics
a masterpiece or histrionic art.

Saved from the Poorhouse.
Fer years David Allingswerth suffered with
Rheumatism, and notwithstanding the best
medical attendance, could net find relief. He
came te the Sciota County Poorhouse, and had
te be carried into and out of bed, en account
et his helpless condition. After the failure el
all the remedies which had been applied, the
Directors of the Poorhouse resolved te use the
celebrated German Remedy, St. Jacob's Oil,
and this was a fortunate resolution ; for, with
the trial of one bottle, the patient was already
much better, and when four bottles had been
used upon him he could again walkabout
without the use of a cane.
