, Yesterday evening about half-past five
o'clock a sad case of. drowsing occuireck
the victim being a little boy, five years
age, :named Peter Biker, son of Jacob
Baler, of Birmingham. It appears that

with hil'" father's house, on - Jane street,
. between John and Joseph to get a drink.
While there by some accident he fell in
andivas immediately drowned. The body
was recovered soon afterwards and the
head found to be very much binised,
caused, no doubt, by striking .against the
sides of the well in the descent. The Coro

Railroad Accident.
On Saturday night, about eleven o'clock,
William,Luke. in the employ of the Mo
nongahela Mitigation_ Company, met with
a severe accident, which may perhaps re.
watt fatally. It seems that he was walk- ,
ing along the track• of the Connellsville
Railroad, slighly intoxicated, when a pas
senger train came along. and he, not hear
ing or heeding the alarm, was knocked
down and had his right arm kun over by
the cars. mangling and mutilating it in - a
terrible manner. Drs. Sutton and M'Cook
yesterday amputated the arm at the
shoulder, and the Injured .man was then
conveyed to Passavant's Hospital,where he
is doing as well as could be expected. He
is about thirty years of age, unmarried
and boarded at Port Perry, Pa.
Supposed Lareeuy_or Silver" Ware
On Saturday a man came to the fruit stand
orMr. Pulpress , in the 'Allegheny market,
__. .
and sold to the son of - the proprietor a sil
ver napkin 'ring for-twenty-five cents. The
young man suspecting that all was not
right, informed the police of the transac
tion and gave a discriptionef the man. Yes
terday afternoon about 2 o'clock one of the
police arrested the man in the First ward,
aillegheny. When broughrto the office and
searched, a quantity of goods was found
about him, all of which no doubt have
been stolen. The goods- consisted of a
linen table cloth, three new unhemmed
linen handkerchiefs, half dozen silver tea
spoons, half dozen tablespoons, five silver
- forks, a call bell, and a mail nail brush.
The spoons were stamped with the initials
HE R. " and the nap rin g-was marked
HE. M:B.--from Broths ." The owner of
the articles can have them by calling at the

to investigate the case, knd after viewing
the body the inquest was adjourned until
Saturday at two P. 31. ! - .i Saturday,the

testimony was elicited: 1

apparently of an overdose ,of opium; as
soon as 'possible I administered emetics,
the effects of the poison having affected her
constitutionally; we endeavored to keep
her awake by having her walk over the
floor, parties assisting her until'She was
entirely powerless; water was -dashed
in her face, and , she was rubbed; we kept'
her breathing by this andnther means; at 1
times it was with great difficulty we could '
keep her breathing; from ?,‘ to 7Velock
in the evening we could raise her without
much trouble; about 9. o'clock she was able
to speak, reaotion having come on; I then
had hopes of her reaove ; she vomited
incessantly through the fight and during,
the next day; on Thurs ay morning the 1
powers of life failed an she sank rapidly.

her was on Sunday evening, at Mr. Low-.
rie's house in East Libeity, She was well
at that time, and told him that she wanted
to. get rid of Mr. Quinn, and thought he
would go home. I heard that - she was
poisoned, and came to the depot totsee her;
she — said she had her lessons for.:
herself, and that she did not want'anybody
punished for what she had done. :Quinn
said they were engaged to be married, but
she denied it; she was with him in Pitts
burgh ,on the Fourth of July. Her state
ment to me was that she procured the
laudanum in East Liberty, by sending a
little girl to a drug store, giving her
twenty-five cents, and requesting her to
purchase that amount. Her companion,
Mr. Quinn, was with her when the pack
age was given her by the little gill; he
asked her what was in it; she said, cordial,
and she was going to take it when she got
home; she took the laudanum at the sta
tion, when be was not seeing her, and he
did not know she had taken it; she handed
me [the witness] the bottle. [lt was here
produced by the w and aut
one-fourth full. Ititness
conained the wa label
R. lki'Clarran, Druggist, East Liberty, and
a printed direction as to the doses required

he came to Pittsburgh. Quinn and Miss
Miller were together the same morning at
seven o'clock, when-he 'returned from
Pittsburgh; saw them at Mr. Bown's gro
cery store in East Liberty; I heard about
one o'clock that she was poisoned; she said
about half an hour before she died that she
was tired of being knocked around, and
that Quinn had nothing to do with it; Mr.
Quinn stopped at the same house, and al
ways boarded there when be was in East
Liberty; Mr. Bacon appeared to be liked
by her bettor than Quinn was. •
'James Lowrie, thegentleinan with whom
the girl lived; was sworn, and said that on
Monday Morning, about two o'clock, the

her as usual, as Brie did not rant to see

It is said that there is a time to laugh
and a time to cry. Patrick ( Leonard must
have realized the truth of this old pro'Verb
on Saturday, for It seems that both occa
sions occurred in one shoe, 'day of his life.
Patrick having been discharged from
jail, where he had been serving a term for
larceny, thought he at least ought to smile
to express his joy at release, and he ac-'
cordingly did so. Strange Ito say, how
ever, the smiling was just the - reverse of
making him good humored; in fact it made
him quite bad huinored and caused him to
commence an onslaught on officer J. H.
Behsen, which resulted in his arrest on an
information for assault and battery pre
ferred by the officer before Alderman
Lippert. A hearing was had in the case,
, ;and Patrick was compelled to take up his
-.old quarters', hich he was exceedingly
loth to do. Po r Patrick.

The publication of this work at this time,
especially as the National Democratic Con
vention is balloting for President and Vice-
President at the time this notiee is written,
is significant. By Democracy, of course,
Mr. Gillet means the principles of the Denin
cmtic party, and his book is a defence of
that .party and an outline of its history.
The fact that Mr. Gillet was for along time
a prominent and active politician, he has
had ample opportunities to fit himself for
the duty of writing such a book: Demo
crats will: find this a valuable work for ref
erence, and others can see the principles of
that party well set forth.,
LIFE OF JESUS. By Dr. Gerhard Uhihorn,
First Preacher to the Court. Published
by Little, Brown & Co., Boston, Mass.
It is rarely that so much thought and ar
gument is embrace in the compass of such
a small volume, as the one before us.
Everylover of evangelical truth will hail
its timely publication, not only for the suc
cessful' refutation of the teachings of He
nan, Siienkel and Strauss, but for the valua
ble arguments ft rnfshed to hand to resist
such views as were taught by them. The
first Oicourse is a review of Ileum's Life of
Jesus. The second attacks and exposes in
a very Isatifactory manner .the heresies of
Eihenkel and Strauss. The third vindicates
the truth of the Gospel. The last discourse
is upon mericales. We hope the work will
have a Iwide circulation.

are mainly devoted to practical topics, pre
senting all the varied forms of teaching.
Each of these chapters are complete initself,
and yet form an interesting thread of narra
lite. The work abounds with vigorous

This series of text-books were prepared
by the , authors to supply the want of an ele
mentary view of the preient state of the
Physical Sciences. The professed text-
books on Science now in use are behind the
'times, and. lack a systematic development
of leading principles. The progress in
these Sciences have been so rapid o; late
years that teachers have felt the need of
just such books as are embraced ,in this
series. The common sense method of deal
ing with the topics discussed,, freshness,
vigor, and clearness of style, are highly
spoken of by experienced' educators. The
admirabliS arrangement, simple and har
monious, of the books, is also greatly coin
'Mended by professional men..whose judg
merit is par excellence.. These testimonials
too come from different parts of the country.
The first of the series treats 'of the Mo
ments of Natural • Philosophy, designed to
be usedin Grammar and District Schools.

ing of pressure; the second, of motion; and
the third, of machines and sources of

hundred illustrations: price 80 cents.
The Cambridge Course of Elementary
Physic comprises three volumes; namely :
Chemistry and Electricity; Bound, Light
and Heat, aid Astronomy. The work on.
Chemistry and Electricity treats of Cohe
sion, Adhesion, Chemical Affinity and Elec
tricity. These topics are thoroughly elabo
tilted, and elegantly illustrated with one
hundred and twenty-two cuts.
The Elements of Bound, Light and Heat
forms the second volume in which the na
ture and propagation of, sound and musical
instruments; nature and propagation' of
light and optical instruments; nature and
propagation of heat, effects of heat on bod
ies, and therial instruments, arc treated ful
ly. Nearly two hundred illustrations are
given: •
The third volume is on the Elements of
Astronomy. The contents embrace motions
and distances of the heavenly bodies; phys
ical features of the heavenly bodies, gravity
of force by which the heavenlg bodies act
upon one another, and origin, traniimilla-
Sons, and conservation of energy. Like
the others this volume" i 3 handsomely Mu's=

Home use, contains an account of the fixed
stars, number, magnitudes, distances, and
