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. A new marble altar, made by your townsman, Mr. C. Hepting, is new in pro gress of erection at the church of the Hely Trinity, en Chei ry street. The work re flects great credit upon the mechanical ability of Mr. Hepting, who is certainly de serving of the patrenage of these requiring anything in his line of business. Our neighbor, Grier, of the Herald, is off te Pittsburgh te attend the meeting of the DemecffA'ic. state central committee. Mr. Jehn B. Batt, of Philadelphia, will take charge of Black's hotel en the 1st of April, he having loased the same for a period of years. Mr. Black retires as land lord en that day. Mr. Jeseph M.

Mr. Jehn Shanahan, of Bewmansvillc, Pa., and Rev. D. I. McDcrmett, of Sum mit, are the guests of Rev. J. J. Russell. 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 person's name. 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. Argument Court. In argument court, the cases en the eommen pleas court are yet being argued. The court appointed Benj. Cooper, Edger Lambern, of Bird-in-Hand, and Na than Maul and William Paxton, of Sads bnry, Chester county, trustees of the Friends meeting house, at Bird-in-Hand. William McCemsey, James C. Carpenter, Jehn D. Wilsen. Wm. M. Slaymaker, Jacob Henry and James Weed were ap pointed te inspect a bridge which was re cently constructed by Jehn Weimer across Peter's creek, near Boyd's saw mill, in Fulton township. A charter was granted te the " Lancas ter Scientific club," en application of Prof. J. P. McCaskey, Dr. J. W. Crumbaugh, Rev. C. Elvin Houpt, J. D. Pyott and B. Frank Sayler. The object of this club will be te promote and encourage the study of science in this city and county by the organization of scientific clubs and classes and by aiding similar clubs already organ ized.

He gave the required amount of bail before the court. Samuel Hepkins, of Bart town ship, and William Jehnsen, of Drumore, both of whom are colored, becoming his sureties. Case Continued. The case of thecem'th vs. A. Reissman, tobacco packer, charged, en oath of James Cellins, with malicious mischief, which was te have been heard this afterne en be fore Alderman Spurrier, was continued indefinitely at the request of the prosecu tion, one of whose witnesses was absent sick. Defendant with his counsel and witnesses was present and insisted en a speedy hearing of the case. Getting isetter. Addison Miller, the young "man who was se terribly hurt by being struck by a locomotive while riding a b ilky colt at Mount Jey, was semewh. t better this morning. His consciousness has returned, and his physicians have new some hopes f saving his life. 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. Further Particulars. 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 reliable confirmation. 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 The bunrlar is believed te be one of the transr who was encased in the robberies I in Yerk en Monday night, arrest is elsewhere noticed. and whose 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 spectators. 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 county. 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. At the hour at which we go te press the hearing is still in progress. Rep. Sacred Songs. Philip Phillips, the great singing evangelist nnd pilgrim will give :i service el sacred song In the First M.

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 te be delivered by one of the accused physi cians, en Thursday evening next, 23th Inst 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." Amusements. Lawrence Barrett. When the chart was opened this morning for the sale el scats for " Hamlet "which will be produced In the opera house en next Wednesday evening, with the distinguished actor Lawrence Barrett in the title role, there was a rush for geed plaees.and in less than an hour ever one hundred had been secured. Since the very favorable impression created by Mr. Barrett in his impersonation of the cardinal duke In Biilwer's drama of " Richelieu," which he appeared in this city two years age, there has been a very general desire among his ad mirers, anil these who have never had the privilege el seeing hlin, tlwt he should return, 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. Te-morrow Evening's Comedy. The Heading Times and Dispatch says of "An Aia')ii.n Night," which will be played here te-morrow night: "The sparkle, vivacity, gayety and humor et " An Arabian Night" were admirably portrayed last evening at the Academy of Music by Mr. Cas-ddy's company, and the au diencc was in a continuous fermentef laughter and ecstasy of delight from the opening te the closing scene. There is a dramatic glow about the several leading Impersonations as presen edby the ladies and gentlemen of the troupe that will be an ever-pleasing recollection." Lecture by Mr. Parsons. On Saturday even ing Hen. William Parsons, the eloquent orator, will deliver his celebrated lecture en " Michael Angele," at Fulton opera house. Mr. Parsons enjoys an extended reputation as a graceful and pleasing speaker, and this lecture is said te be among the best of his nlatferm efforts, being both Instructive and entertaining, teem ing with facts presented with grace of diction and eloquence of utterance that are charming te the ear while conveying the most interest ing Information concerning the wonderful career of the grandest figure in art htjtery, ancient or modern. 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. The facts, as above stated, will be verified by the Editor of the Portsmouth, Ohie, Corres pondent. It Is Terrible te have a wlfe or husband with a bad breath.
