:MISSING MAN FOUND
A Mystery Explained—The Body of An

onees Inquest to be Held To-day.
The sudden and mysterions disappear
ance of Mr. Anthony Frermegle, a well
known merchant of this city, some three
months since, has at last been partially ex
plained-by the finding of his body floating
in the Ohio river. The manner and cause
of his Ileath, however, still, and prob- .
ably, will foreirer remain a mystery.
Whetherby some-unaccountable -accident,
he fell into the 'river and was drowned, or,
being tired of living, he took, upon himself
the responsibility, and by an act of his own
passed into eternity; or, what is still more
terrible to contemplate, did he fall' the vic
tim of some foul and bloody murder, com
mitted by some of the many infamous
scoundrels and assassins who, for the sake
of a few' dollars, would hasten the soul of a
fellow man unprepared to judgment, is vet
a secret, which', in all probability will be
buried in the grave with the unfortunate
man, whose sad fate has for months past
created so great an interest throughout the
community, to be revealed ; only on that
- - day when "nations shall be judged, and
every man rewarded according to his
The circumstances cqnnected. with his
disappearance have been , so extensively
-commented upon by the publio press that,
our readers are all doubtless familiar with
them and we will not, therefore, enter into
details regarding it.
On Tuesday, January 21st, at about eight
o'clocit in the evening, he left some az
quaintanees on Diamond alley, and started
for home.. Not the slightest neculiarity in
his demeanor or in the circumstances at
tending him' was noticed. After that time
until Friday evening last, nothing was
seen or heard of him. Every , effort was
niedif to solve the' myStety; rewards were
offered, detectives endeavored to find traces
'.. of him; his friends and family, left ,no
means untried to find the lost one, but
their untiring efforts were of no avail, - and
no explanation whatever could be given to
the affair. Many of his friends feared that
he had been foully dealt with, while others
conceived the idea that he had been ab
ducted and confined in some Lunatic Asy
lum; yet nothing definite being known in
regard to him, they were left in a state of
suspense more terrible far than would have
been the dread reality.
, About four o'clock on Friday afternoon,
Jacob and John Lashell and John Hughes,
while engaged in pumping out a flat boat
at Lashell's Landing, opposite, Sewickley,
discovined the 'deadbody of a man floating
in the river - near by, which they. at once
secured, and notified Coroner Clawson by
telegraph, stating in the dispatch that the
body was believed to be that of Anthony
Freyvogle. Saturday morning the Coro
ner, accompanied by Mr. S. C. Trauerman,
of St. Clair street, who had been an in
timate friend 'and acquaintance of the
missing man, repaired to the place, and
after empanneling and swearing a jury
composed. of S. C. Trauernian, Henry Smith,
J. W. Marlett, J. Lane, L. Whitmore and
John R.Coehmn,the body was removed from
the water and examined, when unmistaka
ble evidence or its being that of Mr. Frey
vogle was found. The deceased was dressed
in vest, pants, shirt and beets, the coat and
hat being gone. The clothing was readily
identified by Mr. Trauerman, and one of
the boots bore the patch, spoken of in the
first account of his (3lsappearance. In the
pockets of the pants end vest were found
papers which rendered the identification
complete. All bore the name of "Anthony
Freyvogle." Among them was a receipt
signed by Dr. A. G. Walters, another by
Messrs. Roberta & Koenigk, two by Carson,
Darlington & Co. and by Bakewell & Mar
' then, and two tax receipts. On his persou,
also,was found a handkerchief, a'five dol
lar gold piece, a German gold piece, a cent,
a French copper, a night key, a knife and a
gold watch. The latter had stopped at
eighteen minutes after nine o'clock.
The inquest then adjourned to meet at
the Mayor's office at ten o'clock this morn
ing, and the Coroner had the body packed
in ice and removed to the city, where it
was examined yesterday by Dr. idUrdock,
who stated that he was unable to find any
marks of violence. The holes in the
head spoken of in some of the city papers
as having apparently been made by a bra,
let and buckshot prove to be merely inden
tations of the outer skull, made, the Dr.
says, by coining in contact::with some
pointed and hard substance after'decompo.

- DISASTROUS FIRE
The Works of the Pittsburgh Bolt Com
-'most disastrous fire occurred Sunday
morning, at half-past six o'clock, in the
works of the Pittsburgh Bolt-Company, by
which the entire establishment, and a large
amount of valuable machinery, was des
troyed. The building was a frame struc
ture,. iron clad, covering an area of ninety
six by one hundred and thirty feet, and,
was situated at or near the corner of Butler
an d Morton streets. in :the Iginth ward.
That portion fronting on Butler street, next
to Morton, was occupied by the machinery
for cutting screws, and the other end was
used as the business office. In.the rear of
this was the bolt factory proper, where -all.
the valuable machinery for, making bolts,
Nero located, the engine; and-the furnaces , were fixated,
and in the rear of this again was
the blacksmith shop. The - fire, it is
thought, originated from one, of the
furnaces in the bolt factory, as the flames
were first observed issuing from that por
tion of the building. ' The alarm was given
from, box sixty-four at precisely half-past
six o'clock, and in ten minutes thereafter
almost the entire fire department of the
city were on the • ground. Owing to the
fact of the building being iron -clad, - and
the very rapid progress of the flames, it
was impossible to save the building, the
-greater portion of which was in ashes in
Tess than half an hour from the time the
I fire was discovered. The firemen worked
nobly, however, and by their well directed
efforts the devouring element was kept
confined within the iron-clad walls of the
building in which it originated, notwith
standing there were frame buildings within
a few feet of it. The office and a portion of
the screw cutting room,with the machinery,
_saved. The loss is estimated at
$lOO,OOO by the proprietors, but it is diffi
cult to make any correct estimation of it
until the machinery is removed from the
as it is impossible to say to what
extent it• is injured. The engine, which
was a very :valuable and ,expensive one, is
doubtless ruined, as the badplate is broken
in several_ places, and several other por
tions of it seriously injured _ andit is prob.
able that all the light machinery is more
or less broken or warped as to unfit it for
further use. The insurance will not exceed
$40,000, all of which is in Eastern compa
A watchman was kept in the establish
ment, who it appears left the building at
six o'clock, only half an hour before the
flames were discovered issuing from the
roof, which would indicate that the fire
originated very shortly after he left the
building, The fire had ben drawn from
the ibrnace nearest the all on Saturday
afternoon, and the one in which fire re
mained was seveial feet "from anything of
an inflammable nature, consequently the
cause or origin of the fire is something of a
mystery. The however, think
it was accidental.

4 Case Compromised.
A rather peculiar case of assault and bat
tery was brought before Justice Am
mon, of East. Birmingham, which, through
his instrumentality, was comprOmised, and
the parties left the office on more, friendly
terms, if possible, than they had ever been
previously,notwithstanding the fact of them
being husband and wife. It appears that
John G. Kunzman, a young German but
recently married, having some money to
invest, went to the West, purchasek a
•plece of land, and returned for the purpose
of taking his wife and settling upon his
purchase. The wife refused to go, which
so enraged the husband that he forgot his
gallantry and struck her. This was too
much for her to bear, and she went to the
Justice mentioned, stated the facts
and made information for assault and bat
tery: The husband was arrested and when
the case was called up for a hearing, it ap
peared that the wife had tio intention of
prosecuting for assault and battery, but
merely desired •to compell her hus
band to divide what money, he' had
left with her and agree to a separa
tion. This the Justice could - not com
pel him to do, of course, but he reasoned
the matter with the unhappy pair in suCh
An eloquent manner and with-so much
effect, that the husband not only divided
his money with the wife but gave her a
deed for the property he had purchased,

tice discharged the case and the parties

cipal, having resigned on account of ill
health, the directors, teachers, and pupils

their deep regret at parting with one who

were unknown. After singing "Shall we
gather at the river?" Mr. Chamberlain
bade farewell to all. He has the good wishes
of all for his speedy recovery.
