will have a hearing to-day. • sumptuous dinner was afforded: its stock
holders and patrons. The building is one'
of the handsomest in the city, and in style
of finish and point of convenience cannot
be sespassed. The main building is, two
Stories in height, and has a front of twenty ,
feet on Wood street. Tha front elevataon
is compord entirely - of cut'stone, the ma
terial used being remarkably free from
'spots or discploratibn. The first story is
thirty feet high, and 1 forms a , large - atchi.
supported on either - side by ornamented
columns, with. capitals. The archivault
is set With “vottselors,” or raised stones
similar to a keystone, which present a very
`handsome i appearance. The triangular
fields on-each Side of the arch are orna
mentedswith medelions in the form of
shields, encircled by wreaths. 1 This arch is
divided into doorways and windows, the
separatin stone-work being tastefully de
signed. he second story of the building
contains hree clustered windows, arched
at the to , and on either side are Corinth
ian col Trine Supporting a medalian cor
nice.l I the pediment there is an allegori
cal repr entatien of Liberty, surrounded
by flags from beneath the folds of which
appear anehor and a cog or tooth-wheel,
typifyin manufacture and commerce. The
carvin , th inthis piece and , in the col
umns- fore referred to, is skilfully and
artisti y executed. An ornamental par
apet su ounts the pediment, and on either
side tw large 1 eagles, sculptured :from
stone, placed. ;
The tikirg room is on the first floor, on
a level ith Wood street, and is a model of
taste and elegance. It is twenty feet wide
by sixty in length. The ceiling is semi
cironlar in front, about thirty feet high , in
the center, and le handsomely ornamented
in stucco. The rear part of the room is fur
nished in a • style Imrmonizing with the
front of the building, and around the semi
circle 'are circular windows, filled with
stained,glais. The desks, counters, door
frames etc., are oiled walnut, and the floor
is laid n tesselated marble. In the rear of
the room is the vault which is constructed
in a manner which will defy_alike ;he ray
, ages of fire or the operations of burglars.
bathe rear of the main building is ran L
shaped.wing, which extends the full width
of two lots. In this wing, and on the same
level with the banking room, are elegantly
furnished apartments for the President and
Directors, besides lunch room wash room,
etc. These rooms are all fi nished in uni
form style, the wood work being of oiled
_walnut, and some light colored -wood, and
the - ceiling ornamented in stucco work.
The building throughout is most conve
niently arranged for the purposes of a
banking institution' and reflects credit
upon 'the city as well as upon the taste and
liberality of the bank.
The , People's Bank is now permanently
located in the new building, and with
Samuel 'Rea, as President, George Black,
Vice President, and F. M. Gordon, Cashier,
all of wham enjoy a wide reputation as ex
perienced business men, it promises not
only to'maintain its reputation-as a reliable
institution but to even increase its business
wosperity. .
Temperance Meeting =Rev. Paul Coombs,
the Secretary of the Pennsylvania State
Temperance Society, was to have addressed
the friends of the cause irr front - of
Allegheny.Postoffiee last - evening, but the
rain interfered with the arrangement. For
once too much cold water came in contact
with t h e T em perance reform.
Fortsnate.---Yesterday afternoon, while a
carpenter waS engaged in repairing . the
'cornice, of whonse on Ohio street, Alleghe
ny, he Missed his footing and fell to the
ground. He was fortunate enough to alight
on his feet and so was >saved from serious
injury, the only effect being a slight stun
ning from the for. e of the fall.
The contest for the Republican nomina
tion to the municipal offices at the forth
coining Primary:meetings Is growing warm
and exciting. ' There arela number of per
son.s willing to serve , their fellow-citizens
in the various offices. It is generally con
ceded that the Democrats will pat Mr. Jas.
Blackrnore in nomination for re-election to
the office of Mayor.
questions Answered.—Those large heaps
of earth scattered over the Allegheny Com
`mons, which have attracted so much atten
tion, and regarding which so many ques
tions have been aSkd, are compost heaps,
formed by a combination of lime with other
substances which afe to . be used in fertil
izing the soil around the trees when plant
ed in the proposed wk.
Almost Conipleted.—The Federal Street
and Pleasant Valley Passenger Railway is
abiost completed,' and will be in running
order about the fifteenth of the present
month, if the work progresses according to
expectations. But a very smell portion of
the track remains to be laid, and it will be
completed as soon as the cars arrive, which
will about the time stated.
Progressing.—The hew building for the
use of the . First National Bank of Birming
ham is progressing rapidly. The !work
men are engaged on the last story of, brick
work, and have it almost ready for rooing.-
When once dosed up, a strong force of
workmen will be put on and every effort
made to complete it rapidly. It is epected
to be ready foroecupaucy by fall.
Boy Drowned.—Yesterday afternoon,
shortly after one o'clock, 'a boy residing on
McKee street, Birmingham, was drowned

rian Church; one of Book's (Boston) best
make, with the vox humanastop, will arrive
in the city to-day, and will be immediately
erected in.the elegant new church on Biittli
street. This organ will be mach sweeter
in tone than the mammoth Jardine or gan
in the Cathedral, and we daresay will be a
superior instrument altogether, althmigh
not ilo large,
L emperance.—The Temperance men are
actorrAy at work canvassing for the; ad
vancement of their cause. They meet in
Convention Tuesday, - August 11, - to place
in nomination a candidate for . County Coin

cause in A ll egheny.• '

FrITSBUitGIi GAZEM : TUESDAY; AtltitYBT 4, .1868:
Emancipation Day-LThe Celebration Yes
terday=-Row tt Passed off.
Tim colored population of this . yicinity
yesterday celebrated the Thirty-fourth An- 1
niversary of Emancipation.. Its observance
should properly have taken place on Sat.
urday, but owing to the latexiess of that
day in the week it was thought best to post
pone the affair until At an early
hour yesterdaY the excitement commenced,
and:from "early morn till dewy eye"' the
celebration was carried on with earnestness
and hearty abandon, which FBA%) good evi
dence of hoti well the occasion was appre
ciated. ,
The Pittsburgh population generally re
paired to the different Groves in the vicin
ity, and in "revelry and mirth" managed
to put in the time very agreeably. The
largest number thronged the shady re
treats and cool recesses of McFarland's
Grove, where aided bythe mash, the dance
and the promenade, the hours glided
swiftly , and delighfully by. Orators for the
day had been appointed, but for some rea
son they failed to', put in an appearance,
causing somewhat of a break in the' pro
gramme,s which seemed, 'however, to be
teadily filled with the - other exereises.
Linden Grove also attracted quite a fair
assemblage, all of whom appeared tobe en-
• joying,themselves as only snobs company,
an such an occasion could enjoy themselves.
In Allegheny the day was celebrated in a
somewhat shriimr manner. 'About eleven
'o'clock the Lincoln Guards, commanded by
Lieutenant Smallwood, turned out, and,
headed by a martial band, paraded through
some of the princi streets, after which
they marched to her's Grove, in the
rear of Observatory I, which was the
rendezvous for_ the "celebrators" in Alle
gheny. At this place large numbers of
' them gathered, and emancipated from the
cares and perplexities of life for one day at.
least, they entered .with zest into the enjoy
ment of the .occasion.and gave themselves
up to festivity and rejoicing.
Miring the afternoon Prof. L. A. Neal
mounted the stand and made an instructive
and practical address to the assemblage on
the duties of the colored Irace politically
and socially, which was received with evi
denees of great interest by all present, and
seemed very appropriate to the occasion.
, There.was nothing of special interest go.
ing on in the evening but as the different
picnics were broken up, the individuals
dispersed .homewards, perhaps to find a
more quiet and additional pleasure in talk
ing and musing over the days adventures
*and experiences,' each no doubt feeling
gratified at the manner In
_Which it had
been spent: and treasuriogap its recollec
tion as one of the bright spots in the mem
of the past. •
Edward Burnet • was • arrested yesterday
by officer Gumbert, of the Mayor's, pollee,
on an information for false pretence, made
against •him by Mr. • Edmund, Evans, , - of

italirakd 'al Mirialeid.
Coroner n held au inqueit yester
afternoon on the body of a man named
Barney Toner, who waB killed' at Mans
field. It appears that the deceased had been
'in the employ of Messrs. Negley & Co. as a
miner at the Grant coal works, Mansfield,
but had been oat of work for some time.
Yeaterday morning he started up to the
workato see,if he could get a situation, and
while standing bn the track near thecom
pany's tipple, the rnong expreas on the
Pittsburgh and Coln bus railroad, due,
there at 10:20, came alo g, and Toner in en
deavbring to-cross ' thetr ack to get out of
the way was struck by he locomotive and
knocked against a eight train which
had stopped on the other track. 1
The force of the Wow was such as
to crash in his left side, and otherwise
severely injured him. He was conveyed
to his boarding house in Mansfield, and Dr.
Dale 'summoned, but notwithstanding all
that medical skftl could do, he expired
• shortly after one o'clock in thei afternoon.
At the inquest a nuriier of witnesses were
examined, after whie the jury returned a
verdict- "'that the d ceased came to' his
death on the 3d of A gust, 1808, at Mans
field, from being st nok" by the express
train on the Pittsburgh, Columbus and Cin
cinnati •Railroad bung west. No blame can
be attached to the employes of the train,
but the jury are of the opinion that the
morning exprass tra n is run at too great a
speed through Mans 'old." The deceased
was a native of Ira nd, about forty-one
years of age, and ha I, been in the employ
of Messrs. Negley a .. ut two years. •
An °rig I Method.
James Campbell, f thiFirst ward,'Alle
gheny, was charged before Mayor, Drum
with threatening to kill a citizen on & r ant ,
day last. Officer.Kingan found the man at
Kennedy's Landing on the Ohio river, and
Was about to arrest him whenthe accused
jumped into a skiff and commenced, rowing
out into the river. The officer, not to be
outwitted, also procured a skiff and started
in pursuit. Finding himself foiled In this
attempt, Campbell came bilk to the shore,
landing on some rafts and starting' on a
run. Being almost overtaken he took to
the water again, this time; however.:-with
out a skiff. Unfortunately he had never
learned to' swim, and would have been
drowned had not the officer fished him
out just in time: He was taken to the
Mayor's office and fined five dollars and
costs, and then released aftergiving bonds
for his future good conduct. ,
A Diversion
Some time during Fridarnight, or early
Saturday morning, a pail of butter 'was
stolen:from the cellar connected with .the
_residence of Mr. Louis Zellar in East Bir
mingham. The owner of the stolen prop
erty informed Justice Ammon's police of
the occurrence. After a diligent search it
was discovered that the thief, evidently
fearing detection, had concealed the article
in the yard of AlcGonnigle's planing mill.
The employes of the mill finding it, and
thinking some ' , guardian angel" had sent
ast ,1 a slight testimonial, with much re
]olcitig and thanks they divided the spoil
equally amongst themselves, and when the
owner came along naught was left hint but,
the empty Pail. He was so well satisfied
with! securing even it, that he good na
turedly said nothing of the contents, and
alloWed the matter to drop. ' .
In a Smashing nuagr.
Frpk "Schwallan, Nicholas .Damarsh,
Hen , Shaffer and Thomas Murray were
r l ,
arra ted yesterday and brought before
Just, ce Ammon of ° East nirminghtun,
charged on oath of Louis Hauck with dis
orde ly conduct. It is alleged that the ,
parties attended a plc-nie given by the St.
Vincent's Literary Society, at Rap's Grove
on Saturday, at which they acted in a very
disorderly mariner. Coming home from
the pic-nic Hauck alleges that they entered
his saloon in Brownstown arid proceeded to
smash things, destroying everthing that
dime in their way. They wore held for a
further hearing. Theinformation charges
quite a number of others with thp same
offence, but none of them have yet baen ar

,men, named respectively Oscar Robinson •
and James Holley, for recklessly driving
and abusing a horse. It is alleged that the

attend a pio.nic in Gallagher's Grove, just
outside the city. In the evening when they'
returned the animal it was completely ex
hausted, and died a short time after being
put in the stable. The accused were sr

Made another arrest, the ',prisoner being
one of .the' hands engaged on the farm at
the time of the robbery. It is alleged that
the accused gave the necessary informa

their plan so successfully. The parties now
in the Franklin jail, the particulars of
arrest we published some time since,
'will have a hearise on Wednesday, when

Yesterday afternoon the body of a man,
in a state of decOmnosition, was found on
the wheel of the steamer Baltic, lying at
the foot of Penn street, in the Monongahela
River. The boat had steam up preparatory
to departing on a trip down th
fished u e river, and
it is supposed the body was pby
the wheel as it turned round slowly in the
water. The Coroner was notified of the
affair and sent down Alex. Aiken, under
taker, to bring the 'body to the Mayor's of
fice. When Mr. Aiken arrived at the boat.
he found that the body had floated off and'
was lost .It had been rather loosely se
cured to 'the wheel, and as the current at
that place is very strong, it is supposed that
the waves from passing boats had broken
it loose antrcarried it away in the current.
City Controller. I s - -
MESSRS. EDITORS:-The name of :Mr.
Robert J. McGowan is mentioned as an as
pirant for the office of City Controller, sub
ject to the decision of - the Union Republi
can party, on the 15th of August.
Mr. McGowan was born and raised in
this county; he is a hard working and in
dustrious man; an honest, upright and re
liable citizen, and is worthy and. deserving'
the hearty support of the people. He is an
estimable gentleman, possessed of a high
grade of moral character, good judgment
'and honesty of purpose. His faithful ser
vices on the Finance Committeirwhire a
member of the City Councils enables him
to fully understand the financial affairs of
the city and the workings of the Control
ler's office; his education, and thokongh
knOwledge of the science of book keeping'
qualities him for a first class Controller, and
will enable him to . discharge the 'duties of.
that office with ability, and to the advan
tage and satisfaction of the tax-payers.
However, should any: one entertain
doubta—through dishonorable and false
representations which have been made, by
parties deeply interested in his defeat—of
his knowledge, qualifications and ability to
perform the duties of City Controller, they
will receive satisfactory explanation by a
personal interview withMr.ldcGowan him
self. , SEEM WARD.
A First Class Drug and Perfumery Rouse.
Prominent amongst the well •conducte&
and first-class drug and perfumery estab
lishment of the city, stands the old estab
lished and favorably known house of
Simon R. Johnson, corner of. Fourth and
Smithfield streets. Mr. J., from unusual
facilities for purchasing, secured during a
recent visit to Europe, is .enabled to
keep this market supplied with' the
finest assortment and . quality of for
eign articles of drugs, perfumeries and
tenet articles, and at prices much
below those which prevail elsewhere.
Yesterday we had the pleasure of looking
through the really fine stook of perfumer
ies and toilet articles he has on hand, and
must award it the first place amongst those
held by cotemporary houses. R embraces
all the favorite, domestic and foraign arti
cles which, have forced their way , through
merit alone into public favor. Nowhere
else in the city can goods in this line be
purchased to better advantage, for while
the range ofseiection is broad and varied,
the prices are exceedingly just and rea
sonable. Of toilet articles, a leading spe
cialty of this, the reader can
have no just appreciation,unless paying a
visit and looking thr ough the stock.
Mr. Johnson keeps employed careful clerks,
thoroughly learned in the my steries of
pharmacy, who are constantly in attend
anee to fill prescriptions, and put up medi
cines. The highest compliment on their_
ability is the fact that not a single prescrip
tion has been wrongly interpreted or filled
since the establishment of the house. Fox
any and everything in the line of drugs,
Perfumeries, toilet articles, liquors, cigars,
dt., we commend the house of Mr.
Johnson to our readers, and trust that even
a still larger_ share of patronage than bile
hitherto been awarded it, may reward the
untiring efforts of the proprietor to meet
the wants and ;demands of the public in
this line of trade.
