His Pittsburg Descendants Join a Movement
TO SECTJEE rnOMAS GREUG JUST CREDIT
It is said that a memorial will be sent to
the next Congress asking the Government
to recognize Thomas Gregg, late of Connells
Ville, Fayette county, Pa., as the inventor
of the first iron clad ball-proof naval ram.
Mr. Gregg was the grandfather of Mrs. D.
P. Beigbard, Mrs. A. Hamilton and Charles
LyUe, of Pittsburg, and father of the late
Itev. John C Gregg, deceased, and grand
father of J. B. and V. S. G. Gregg, of
Philadelphia, and these latter, bnsiness
men, are At the head of the movement. They
submit as proof of claim a patent granted
Thomas Gregg for a ball-proof vessel on the
9th of March, 1814, bearing the signatures
of President James Madison, Secretary of
State James Monroe, and Attorney General
Bichard Bush. This patent it as renewed
ZTios. Gregg' Merrimac
Thomas Gregg was born m Newcastle,
Del., and being all his life an inventor, it
is scarce necessary to say that he died poor.
In early manhood he moved to Fayette
county, this State, and made the first ham
mer and nails used in Fayette county. He
also made salt, but spent the most of his
time making iron, and invented the first
furnace ever used for smelting iron by use
of anthracite coal.
JUST HIS LUCE.
He met the ordinary fate of inventors.
"While on a visit to Delaware, his foreman,
who had been left in charge to left the in
vention, stole papers, patterns and'drawings
and fled to England, where he made himself
and others rich on the lruits 01 jut. liregg s
genius. Mr. Gregg went on making iron,
and during the "War of 1812 turned
his attention to the subject of ball
proof vessels, his labors culminating in the
invention of 1813 and patent grant of 1814.
In the Journal of the House of Representa
tives, March 24, 1814, is the entry:
Mr. "Wilton presented a memorial of Thomas
Gregg, of Pennsylvania, stating that he had in
vented a ball nroof vessel or floatlnc battery.
and presenting a model for the examination of
Congress and requesting that its efficiency may
De tested by experiment. Ordered that sail
memorial be referred to the Committee on
2 aval AIT airs,
On March 25, 1814, Mr. Lowndes, of South
Carolina, moved that the Committee on
Ifaval Affairs be discharged from the con
sideration of the petition of Thomas Gregg
and that it be referred to the Secretary of
the Xavy. Mr. Lowndes conceived a preju
dice against the invention and became an
enemy of Mr. Gregg, using all his influence
to defeat his plans.
The model presented was burned in 1836.
In 1837 the patent was renewed.
Commodore Dupont, of Delaware, tested
Mr. Gregg's invention, and was so pleased
with it that he commended it strongly to
such lawmakers as A. Stewart, Tariff Andy
and D. Surgen, of this State, and Messrs.
Clayton and Bayard, of Delaware, urging
them to push the claims oz the inventor.
EEBS THE FIHST TO CATCH IT.
The invention was described as ball-proof
and impenetrable. In construction it was
framed on an angle of 18 degrees all around
the hull. The top timbers elevated the
balls and the lower ones were designed to
direct them under the keel. The power
was applied between the keels, where there
was a concave formed to receive the motive
machinery, the power to be reversed to pro
pel the vessel either way. The principle, it
was claimed, protected men and machinery
effectually, and was capable of performing
more service than half a dozen vessels of

the Confederate authorities, and the result
was the production of the terrible Merrimac
The Scientific Amevican of May 24. 1864,
seems to have been the first to fall to it, and
In the course of onr investigations at the
Patent Office we have come across a patent

page devoted to the subject, headed "The

Soon after the war some Pennsylvanians
memorialized Congress, setting forth that
Mr. Gregg had spent much money in his
efforts to benefit the Government, aud like
many other originators had died compara
tively poor.and they asked that he be recog
nized as the inventor of the ball-proof iron
clad, and that a liberal appropriation be
made to his widow who was in snch circum
stances as to render her appreciative of such
justice. The memorial still tl umbers in the
waste lumber gallery along with the French
spoliation claims and thousands of others
lacking powerful lobby leverage. Bev.
John C. Gregg 21 years ago wrote this of
the invention and his father:
"While sharp competition has been carried on
both in France, England and this country as to
ft ho is entitled to the credit of this invention
which promises to revolutionize the old-established
system of naval warfare, I humbly sub
mit that a reference to the records of the
Patent Office at Washington and to some indi
viduals who are still living will incontestably
establish the claim of Thomas Gregg and do
justice to his genius as the real inventor.

Cape May, N. J., June 23. A great
xnanv people were disappointed this morn
ing because the President and Mrs. Harri
son did not worship at the Presbyterian
Church here, as a rumor that they would do
so had gone abroad. It had been arranged,
however, that the Presidental partr should
attend service at the Beadle Memorial Pres
byterian Church at Cape May Point, which
stands directly upon the beach within a
stone's throw of the Wanamaker cottage. It
not being very widelv known the beautiful
little edifice was not" uncomfortably crowd
ed. It was two minutes of 11 when the
President, Mrs. Harrison, Mr. "Wanamaker,
Mrs. Harrison's father, and Bev. Dr. Wylie
came in. Dr. "Wylie is pastor of the Broad
Street Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia,
and officiated on this occasion.
The Bev. Dr. Scott sat behind the sacred
desk with Dr. "Wylie. The pulpit was
nicely decorated with blooming plants. The
President and wife occupied the second pew,
immediately in front of the speaker, with
Mr. "Wanamaker on the right. Led by a
small choir the services began bv singing
"Praise God from whom all blessings flow,"
followed by a short prayer by the officiating
clergyman! Hymn 83 of the church hymnal
was then sung, beginning "Safely through
another week God has brought us on our
way." The scriptural lesson read was from
the sixteenth chapter of Acts, beginning at
the ninth verse. The venerable Dr. Scott
then "offered a prayer, in which our land and
nation, its President and the Government
officials were remembered. After singing
Dr. Wylie announced his text, found in
Phillippians iv., 19: "But my God shall
supply all your needs according to His
riches in Christ Jesus."
The sermon was an able discourse de
livered without notes and listened to with
close attention by the President and Mrs.
Harrison. After singing "God bless our
native land" the services closed with the
benediction pronounced by Dr. Scott.
Beadle Memorial Church was built by Mr.
"Wanamaker several years since in memory
of Elias B. Beadle. D. D.. LL. D. After
returning irom church the President and
Mrs. Harrison and Mr. "Wanamaker took
seats on the verandah, over which the cool
refreshing sea breezes softly played.
"William McKean, of the Philadelphia
Ledger, and one or two other gentlemen
were the only callers, it having been both
the President and Mi. Wanamaker's desire
that only a few personal friends be admit
ted to-day. To-morrow forenoon, it is un
derstood, the President will receive all who
may wish to call. From all the surround
ing country to-day visitors have come to
catch a srlimpse of Cape May's distinguished
guests. At 1 o'clock to-morrow the Presi
dent will leave for , "Washington in Mr.

IT WAS TIME TO LEATE.
Unwelcome nnd Uninvited Guest Po
litely bat Jflnnly Dismissed.
Washujgtox', June 23. "Washington
has been long notorious for a small class of
hard-faced, persistent people who make the
rounds of fashionable entertainments and
receptions without either invitations or the
acquaintance of the people upon whom they
intrude. They are of both sexes, and are
alike marked for their brazen audacity.
One was well done up last season, and taught
a lesson he will be slow forgetting.
A certain club in the "West End is noted
for its exclusiveness. At a dance given by
it this bold intruder put in an appearance
faultlessly attired and complacent in pros
pect of a pleasant evening, topped off with a
fine collation. Several of the floor mana
gers happened together and attention was
called to the conspicuous stranger, whom
none of them knew. By a. comparison of
notes it was quickly discovered that none of
the authorized persons naa issuea mm an
invitation, and only one knew even his
name. That one approached him and
""Will you inform me whose guest you are
The intruder hemmed and hawed, but did
not afford the desired information.
"You will have to pardon me," continued
the gentleman, "but it is necessary to know
the name of the friend who invited you
Not receiving any satisfactory response,
the floor manager continued:
"You fail to see what I am trying to
make plain to you, sir. You are one of a
class in this city who force themselves into
the society of people with whom they are
not acquainted, and who come to exclusive
entertainments without the formality of an
invitation. Now, if you will take my arm
I will conduct you to the cloakroom. If
you should go alone it would cause com
ment, but if you will take my arm people
will think you are an acquaintance."
The interloper took the proffered arm and
vanished from the room.

GBEENSBtTEG, Pa., June 23. The pro
prietors of the "speak-easy" saloons at
Jeannette have been operated upon by a
sleek individual who drew irom them a
liberal assessment to secure secrecy in their
alleged offenses. There are abour30 illegal
saloons in the town, and on Saturday a man
representing himself to be a deputy internal
revenue collector came upon them and as
sured the breakers of the law that by pay
ing him 550 each he would allow the sale
to continue uninterruptedly.
The scheme was successful, and the
stranger left the town several hundred dol
lars richer. A number of indictments are
resting in the courts here against illegal
liquor seller at Jeannette, and it is likely
other informations will be made, as the kick
made by the victims of the sleek stranger
has revealed to the officers the location of
several that were unknown.

Bedfobd, June 23. The temperance
people of Bedford had hardly recovered
from the news of Tuesday's election when
they got another black eye from the Court,
who granted a hotel license to Captain Dex

The German Trades Assembly held its
regular meeting yesterday. A petition of
the Painters Union, of Allegheny, to the
City Councils of Allegheny, asking that the
engine houses of that city be painted by
skilled workmen instead of by the firemen,
was indorsed. It was reported that the
carpenters are having difficulty with Mr.
Herman Straub, the Bloomfield brewer,

non-union men. The assembly decided to
give the carpenters all the moral and finan

and discovered a cat with its head fastened
in a fruit jar, making a noise that sounded
something like burglars. It was released,

Silcsian Missionaries of the Order of
the Sacred Heart of Jesus
laborinc? for the Advancement and Care
of Homeless Italian Orphans.
IN EARNEST AND ANXIOUS TO SUCCEED
(SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.!
New Yobk, June 23. During the past
few weeks, dark-fealured women in the
garb of Sisters of Charity have been going
through the Italian quarters in the Bend
and in Little Italy, climbing up dark,,
sleep and narrow stairways, diving down
into foul basements and into dens which
even a New York policeman does not care
to enter without assistance. These women
are all slight and delicate. They wear a
peculiar veil, unlike that of the usual re
ligious devotees, aud few can speak English.
They are members of an order entirely
new to this country, the Silesian mission
aries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is an
Italian organization of nuns who looK after
the welfare of orphans, and all that are en
gaged in this work are of Italian birth.
The half dozen located in this city are
pioneers in the United States, and they
came upon the solicitation of Archbishop
Corrigan and Mrs. Luigi P. Di Cesnola,
wife of General Di Cesnola, the director of
the Metropolitan Museum of Art
BEQTJESTED BY THE AECHBISHOP.
The Archbishop and Mrs. Di Cesnola
wrote to Lombardy, the headquarters of the
missionaries, last November, requesting that
a branch be established in this country.
They were induced to this because of the
terrible condition in which many poor Italian
children were in this city. Of the many
thousands of Italians in New York a very
large majority were sunk in extreme poverty
This was particularly so in the case of
those newly arrived in this country. Una
ble to provide, with any degree of decency,
for themselves, they, of' course could do lit
tle for their children, and these were al
lowed to grow up in abject ignorance.
Many were abandoned or driven forth into
the streets of the big city to beg or steal the
means of subsistence. v
One cannot walk the streets without en
countering hundreds of little Italian boys
whose only knowledge of English lies id tbe
?hrase: "Shina boota, fiva centa, mista."
he pennies tbey collect are not their own,
but go to some padrone who supplies their
outer outfits and gives then a mere pittance
of the small amount they earn. Of the
Italian girls who are
HOMELESS AND FOBSAEE2T
their misery may not be so apparent, but it
is even greater.
The Silesian missionaries came here in
March, hut were not able to begin opera
tions until some time later. They now oc
cupy a large yellow stone house on East
Twenty-ninth street, near Park avenue. It
is rather cold and forbidding looking on the
outside, but the interior is bright and cheer
ful. The floors are stained, and rugs are
scattered around plentifully. The Ameri
can contingent is Sister Frances Xavier Ca
brini, Superior General. She is a dsrk-hued,
but sympathetic woman, with large, coal
black eyes and a winning smile, She cannot
talk English. She is very much in earnest,
and anxious that her mission should be suc
cessful. As soon as the branch here is
firmly established she will return to Europe,
leaving another missionary in charge here.
She is the founder of the order, and has
done wonderful work in providing refuges,
for "our object," she said, "is to rescue the
Italian orphans of the city from the misery
and dangers that threaten them, and to
make good men and women of them. At
present we are especially
ANXIOUS ABOUT THE ITALIAN OTBLS
who have no decent homes, but later on we
shall look out for the boys also. We in
clude, under the title of orphans, not only
the fatherless or motherless, but also the
children that are abandoned or whose
parents do not properly care for them. We
have .found that many children are
abandoned shortly after they reach this city.
Their parents who have come here
expecting to be rich immediately,
now learn tneir mistake, ana being
unprovided with money, they set the
children adrift to care for themselves. Then,
too, there are many poor Italians who are
barely able to supply food for the numerous
mouths dependent on them, and they are
glad to let us take some of their children
and bring them up properly. Of late things
have been somewhat better, because of the
work of the Italian priests who came to
New York at the request of the Pope, but
there is still a great deal to be done.
THE MODE OP "WOEK.
We take children between the ages of 4
and 15 years, house, feed and clothe them,
aud train them, mentally and physically, so
that they may be good citizens and good
members of the church. Our mode of work
is to go right down into the Italian
?uarters, And go from house to house,
rom apartment to apartment. We are
recognized by all Italians, and many of
them are glad to see us. We try to learn
about all the Italian children we meet,
whether they have proper homes and proper
schooling, x nave saia that we are especia 1
ly anxious about the girls just now, and the
reason must be apparent. The temptations
that a big city like this offers to poor, ignor
ant girls of any nationality, are very great,
and to abandoned Italian girls, who have
no means of livelihood and are ignorant
even of the language of those around them,
they are terrible. At present our means are
limited, as we depend entirely upon
but all the Italians of wealth approve of
our course, as well as the Carbolic clergy,
and we hope soon to be able to do more. As
soon as our means will afford, we intend to
have a larger house, where we can accom
modate all the children that come to us."
The work of these women is very trying,
and has many hardships. Any one who
has ever been in tbe Italian quarters where
these missionaries go, can realize something
of the unpleasantness of their task. Sky
scraping tenements in which hun
dreds of . families are huddled
together, ill-smelling rooms, drunken
men and surly women all these must be
encountered on every trip. "Many of these
Italians, too, have abandoned all religion
and are atheists. They have no sympathy
with the meek, kindly-faced women who de
vote their lives to charity, and frequently
are very gruff in their behavior toward
them. Still the missionaries persist in their
worK, ana try to save the children or even
these men, unmindful of the jeers and even
"THE QUEEN OF TABLE WATERS.

Los Anoeles, Oat, June 23. A. C.
Williams, arrested some days ago for forg
ing the name of Arthur Gorham, of Boston,
for a draft of $500, has made another state
ment of events leading up to his arrest. He
states that he nursed Gorham for a month
while the latter was sick and that Gorham,
on recovering, was very grateful and prom
ised to provide for him all his life. Gor
ham sent him on a pleasure trip to London
with William Prosser, a nephew of Baroness
Hastings and he (Williams) remained in
London several weeks. He then returned
to go on the stage in Chicago, but Gorham
persuaded him not to take this course and
gave him more money.
Williams then concluded he would go to
Australia and Gorham purchased a ticket
for him, signing his own name to the ticket
for him. Williams says Gorham then wrote
out papers for him to sign releasing Gor
ham for a nominal amount from all claims
for services rendered. Gorham said he
wished to show this paper to his brother
Jum, who was greatly opposed to Williams.
He promised to give Williams ?15,000 in
two years if he would sign the paper, and
also give him $5,000 the third year. Will
iams said he signed the document at A. C.
Blake. .Gorham then gave him $3,000 and
both went on a spree. The next day, when
Williams left for Los Angeles, Gorham
gave him a check for $100. Williams says
that he has no fear of the consequences,
