Not - long since he spent a few months in

some of his property, consisting of a trunk
containing clothing and other things;
amounting in value to one hundred and

A lievrrilouse---The East Outdone—Why
Should Merchants Purchase Abroad
Wben Lower Prices and. Better Goods
are Offered at Home t
Feeling that Pittsburgh would support a
first class wholesale and jobbing queens
ware establishment, and that the large
trade hitherto diverted in favor of Eastern
merchants might .be retained at home. if
proper stocks were carried, prices offered
and indneementri aflbrded, Messrs. Boyter
& Ogden, two well-known, enterprising and
capable business gentlemen, have just
opened one of' the most extensive estab
lishments of that character„to be found in
the 'United States. This house, which has
already advanced to a place of importance
In the trade of the city, is located at No. 23
Wood street, a oint favorable to
the jobbing trade, being near to both
river and rail, and so soon as its merits are
fully laid Delores the public it intuit rejoice
in an immense patronage, derived not only
from an, immediate neighborhood, but
likewise from Western Virginia, Eastern
Ohio, and States contiguous to our own.
The firm have opened with an immense
importation of goods, direct from Europe,
where the, were purchased for cash, gold,
by one of the panthers recently, and from
an examination yesterday wo were almost

half the tables west of the Alleghenies

the stock. Pint we entered tho collar, whore

and are held In reserve fur the opening of
trade. On the next flour, the printaptil sale
and sample room, we were lost amidst a
profusion of goods - embracing everything
known in this line of business, bum the
tiny little toy cup up m the mammoth
bowl and pitcher. Indeed, so oloaely is this
room occupied with stook that we could

found a splendid variety of fine pressed
and cut glass ware, chandeliers, oil lamps
and superior china ware. These articles
aro made specialties, the principal trade,
however, being in queensware. Op. the
second floor the same great exhibition of
snowy white and colored atone warn greets
the eye, and so on through the third and
fourth stories, even up to the - attic. The
firm have already tilled a warehouse
on Second street, together with their Wood..
street house. with the first instalment
of their primary importation, and have an.
other cargo on board the j Cumberland,
now on the ocean. Their facilities for do
ing business is unequalled and they will
doubtless entirely monopolize a vast share
of trade from this neighborhood and the
west. They have a large force employed,
and r while the interests of the house are
represented by a number of traveling sales
men, all the departments at home are at
tended to in the best possible manner. Per
haps the best advertisement the? firm could
have is the fact that they will duplicate the
prices of all invoices shown of purchases
from eastern importers, and - as a regular
thing will sell at prices mach more reasona
ble than prevail beyond the Allegheny
mountains. , Merchants will take this fact
into consideration, as it will: save them

they can purchase at this house goods at

freights by-confining their patronage here.
With large capital and sound business
judgment the members of this new busi
ness house propose to carry on their trade
in such a manner as not only to win confi
dence, but likeviise to build up such a trade
in this line of business as will be an item
of material importance in the (mercantile
statistics of the city. They will deal large
ly in lamp goods, having an immense and
varied stock on hand, and will offer great ,
inducements to patrons of that department.
Dealers abroad and city merchants making
up their orders will consult their interests
by giving this house a call. They will be
fairly astonished at the immensity of the
stock carried and the very reasonable prices
prevailing In every department. The gen
tlemen composing the firm aro praise
worthy, obliging and honorable,with whom
it is a pleasure to deal, and we bespeak for
them the large trade due their energy and
enterprise. Their house cannot fail to be- .
come the great popular trade mart for goods
in this line, as making direct importations,
for whioh they enjoy unusual facilities,

a fight occurred between twp boys, which
created a great deal of excitement, but was
finally stopped. Just about the time it
ceased Hoak came up and inquired what
the matter. was. Patrick made a remark
to the effect that police officers were never
on hand when they were needed, but al
ways came up when the fuss was 'over.
Nothing was said at the time by the officer,
but shortly 'afterwards he came up to Mar
ley, who was standing by a tree, and asked
him what he meant by the remark. The
' reply was that no offense was intended,
but Soak, it is,alliged, not satisfied with
this explanation, knocked the man down
and kicked him, and would have otherwise
abused him but that his victim, regaining
his feet, ran off as fast as possible. ,Hoak

. Yesterdsiafternoon, about two o'clock,
two women - entered the' trimming store of
Dennison it Heckert, on Fifth street, osten
sibly to make some purchases. 'While . in
the store one of them was detecied in the
act of stealing a pair of stockings, and
when discovered she immediately offered
to pay for them. The proprietors, suspect
ing that all was not right, refused to let
them go, and called in officers . Kelley and
Stewart, who were near at hand, and who
conveyed both women to the lock-up.
As they were being taken through to the
cells Officer Stewart noticed one of them
throw something behind a door. He im
mediately made search and found apiece of
ribbon about half a bolt altogether, which
as if it was perfectly new. Exam
ining it closely he discovered the trade
mark of F. 11. Eaton stamped upon it, and
comparing it with a piece in Mr. Eaton's
store he found it to be exactly the same.
This led to au investigation of the af
fair, which, resulted tri the unearthing_
of a quantity of stole i goods, and the

with his usual yro ptitude and care for,
the public interest, companied by Messrs.
George Fortutte, See etary of the Board of
Health, and his Assi tent, Williams, visi
ted the East Liberty Stock Yards for the
purpose of ascertaining what effect might
be had on the general health of the
community from the cattle diaease,.
and to discover In what manner the
carcasses were , being disposed of. They
found some of the bone boiling es
tablishment. whither bad been taken the
carcasses of the animals, in a wretchedly
filthy condition, many of the bodies being
exposed to the sari and tar decomposed,
filling the atmosphere with the most terri
ble stench imaginable. Nor was this all.
The offal, containing enough poison to
sicken an entire community, was thrown
into a run which leads to the Allegheny
river, and our people have been for
several days past swallowing the juice
of the boiled flesh of diseased cattle.
The order was at once given by the author
ities to bury the offal in a deep pit with
Bine, and we trust that it will be obeyed, as
it, is no pleasant thing to realize that the
Allegheny river is so largely charged with
sickening poisons. It is .-bad enough to.
have served upon our table health
destroying beef, but careless bone
boilers haye taken due pains that
the water we drink shall be charged with
frith and poison. It is but prudent to ab
stain from the water as Much as possible,
at least until sufficient time has elapsed to
permit the poison with which it must be
now charged to pass away.
Alleged Outrage--A Strange Affair.
On Thursday evening a young man giv
ing his name as G. Gaab stopped a couple
of the night police oa the lino of the Alle
gheny Valley Railroad and requested their
assistance. He had a rather strange story
to tell, which in substance was as follows: •
He had been taking a walk with a 'young
woman named Lena Jones, and while going
along the Allegheny river bank, near Wil
kins street, they were attacked by live or
six rowdies, who had been secreted behind
a pile of lumber, and who knocked him
down and used him in a very rough •man-•
ner. In the meantime the young woman
was dragged sway by the rowdies and
-when he recovered no trace of them could
be seen. The police, after making a
thorough search of the neighborhood, and'
failing to discover anything, accompanied
the young man to the boarding house of
Min Jones, on Penn street. Gael, went in
to the house telling the officers to remain
outside. After waiting fur some time, and
finding that Ciaab - apparently Intended to
remain inside, they went away, supposing
the matter to bo all right. Yesterday
morning a rumor was current that the girl
was still missing and that tho young man
was suffering from the injuries he had re
ceived, but upon inquiry it was ascertained
that she had returned home. No further
particulars of the affair could be ascertain

returned for the remainder, when he found
the house barred against him and his irate
landlady, Margaret Stewart by name, on
the inside emphatically protesting that he ,
could move no more things until ho paid

slightly in arrears. Notwithstanding all

manner, and can hardly get out of order,
and if it does it can be repaired by the least
skilful in mechanics. It performs its work
in such a manner as to win for it the palm
of superiority, being superior and substan
tial. It works with rapidity and ease, and
takes in the east range of work which many
suppose beydnd the power of tnachinery,aral
is almost noiseless in its motions, requiring
no strength,skill or endurance to successful
ly operate it. During 1867 the Company
manufactured 43,053 of their world-famed
Singers, which was ,a much larger number
than the product of any similar Company for
the same period. Figures generally tell
truths, and in this ease fully demonstrate
that the public have a just appreciation of
-this marvellous invention of the age, and
in no unmistakeable manner assert their
preference. The workings of the Singer
Machines must be seen to be appreciated.
They run light, have most perfect feed, best
extra attachments, and perform more
work without change of needle or thread
or-tension than any other offered to the
public. The General Agents for this city,
Messrs. Straw tit Morton, at their elegant
rooms, corner of Penn and St. Clair streets,
have a splendid stock on hand of the ye,
rious styles of machines, and any of our
readers contemplating making a purchase
in this line should not fail to call and ex
amine them.( If properly understood and
appreciated, the Singer machine would find
its way into every family in the city.
An engineer of the Pittsburgh, Fort
Wayne and Chicago Railway, was brought
before Mayor Dram yesterday morning
()barged with violating a city - ordinance by
obstructing - Ohio Avenue, in the Second
ward, Allegheny The offence consisted in
allowing his engitle, attached to a train of
cars, to block up the crossing on the Avenue,
thus preventing travelers from passing that
way. The shifting yard of the company
abuts on the Avenue, and it has been the
custom in making up the trains to use the
crossing, therchy I delaying travelers who
may have to pass that way, very often from
fifteen minutes to half an hour before - the
tracks are sufficiently clear to allow, of
a safe crossing. The officers of the'
company have teen notified of the mat
ter several times but they say it , had
heretofore been' impossible to prevent
it. They have, however, procured addi
tional grounds on the north and west side
of the depot, and as soon - as the tracks are
laid it will remove the shifting yard so
that the trouble will be obviated. The ar
rested party yesterday was fined twenty:.
live dollars, which he paid and was die
charged. Subsequently, it is stated, he
met the informer against bin, and beat him
severely r threateniug to put an end to his
life. An information was lodged against
him for assault and battery. gave bail
for a hearing on this second charge, which
will take place this morning.
