Jos. B. McDoNaLn,
J. F.
A young man of rather fine personal ap
pearance, but who had evidently been in
bad company last night, judging from his
unsteady gait, while passing down Dia
mond alley staggered too near the entrance
to Patterson's livery stable, when his foot
slipped under the gate and becaine fasten
ed in such a manner as to'defy till his ef
forts to remove it; Finding it impossible
to release his'foot, be quietly seated him
self and, Micawber-like, "waited for some
thing to turn up." A gentleman who hap
pened ' to be passing observed the "fix" he
was in, and calling some assistance released
tht;, who, to prevent the recur
rence of such an accident, took the centre.
ofl the. alley instead of the narrow side
Another Sensation.
A Blight sensation was - created among the
equenters of a fashionable "establish
ent" on Harrison street, Twelfth ward,
• l esterday, by the arrest .of Mary Sinclair,
the'proprietress, on a charge of keeping a
bawdy hotise. informatiOn was made by
William Hartz before Alderman McMas
ters, who issued his warrant and placed it
in the hands of his officers. : :. Yesterda2. ,
r i b
afternoon the officers visite . the house and
arrested Mary Sinclair th 3 proprietress,
who, in company with. three girls; Mary De-
Witt, Maggie McClarren a d Dora Tetter,
found in the house at the ti ne; Was taken
_the Alderman's office. The accused,
Mary Sinclair, was held to ail in.the sum
of SI,OOO for her appearance at the office at
three o'clock to-day, for a hearing, ar.d the
'girls were held to hail for their appearance
as. witnesses. John G. Nelson a youth who
was captured in the house, was also held
to appear as a witness in the case.
Yesterday morning, about eight o'clock,
another lamp explosion occurred which re-
I snited in the very severe burning of a little
daughter of. John R. Reynolds, of Lower
I-St Clair township. It seems that Miss
Jones, a sisterof Mrs. Reynolds was trim
ming anu lighting the lamp for the purpose
of going hito the cellar, when, by some ac
cident the little girl dropped a match into
lamp, causing instant explosion. She
was almost covered with the burning fluid,
and when Miss Jones ran to her assistance
her own efothing'caught fire, and she was
compelled to call for aid.. The child's
mother came in and seizing a piece of car
pet wrapped it around her daughter thus
smothering the flames. Miss Jones, by
quickly tearing the burning clothing from
her person, escaped with/a few slight
burns. The little girl is/very severely
burned, her legs and arms being charred
almost black, and is lying at her home in
a' precarious condition.
Officer Poland, of Alderman Hay'S po
lice, has one case on band which has. thus
far given considerable trouble. It seems
he has a judgment against Frederick
Shulz, a tavern keeper in the Allegheny
Diamond; and went to make levy on his
goods, when ho alleges he was assailed by
Shulz and his wife with all sorts of abusive
and profane language, and threatened with
violence. He returned to the office and
made an infortnation against the parties for
assault and /battery, and surety of the
peace. 'they were arrested and gave bail
to answer both charges at Court. He in
turn was• then charged before Alderman
Eggers with assault and battery by Mrs.
Shulz, who alleges that be choked her. In 7
this case he was held fora hear ng,. Ltiatly
he makes information agains Schuh: for
profanity, on which a Warrant was issued
by Alderman Harm. Altog Cher thero
seems, to be enough cueing inthese suits to
suit any person who can at all be suited.
, Mark B. Kelse, of Nablestown, made in
formation before the Mayor yesterday,'
charging W. J. M. Hall alias William
BroWn, with larceny. It appears that the
accused wag clerking for the prosecutor,'
who keeps a store at Noblestown, and had
been •in his-employ for about a month.
He was paid off Saturday and discharged,
and after he left his employer discovered
that piece - of cloth containing live and
three-quarter. yards had disappeared. Ho
followed 'Wm to the city and made the in
fermation as stated. 'Officers Brown and
Jones, of the',Mayor's police, arrested the
alleged larcenist , yesterday, and upon
searching his carpet bag not only found
the cloth but a Colt's revolver, which; was
identified by Mr. Kelso as his property,•
and consequently another Information;for
larceny was niade against him. After a
hearing he was hold to bail for his appear
ance at Court, in default of which he was
committed to jail.
.Tiffe prisoner, it Appears, hails from Oil
City . where his wife resides, who by, the
way, will be sadly disappointed, as she ex
pected him home yesterday as was indica

A Domestic Squabble.
Michael Britt and his wife Catherine,
residents of Brownstown, have become in
volved in a series of domestic difficulties,
from which they will 'find it troublesome
to extricate themselves. Such, at least,
will be the case with Michael, 1- who, having
I become-suspicious of his wife's fidelity, has
taken to drink, and, as Mrs. Britt alleges,
abuses her 'in a brutal manner.. This is
not all she 'complains of, and if Maria
Thereso Schmall can.die believed, she haki
ample grounds of complaint. Yesterday
the affair was brought before Justice Ant
.mon, who Issued a warrant and had Michael
arrested on a charge of assault and battery,
preferred by his wife, and after a hearing
lu_the case ho.was held to bail for his ap
pearance; at Court. It did not terminate
, bero, unfortunately for Michael, who, be
:fore leaving the office, was called upon to
answer al charge of rape. on oath of Maria
"Theresa - iSchmall, for • which he was also
held to answer at Court; and in default of
bail Was!committed to-jail. ' .
1 The litseased Cattle.
Of the One hundred and fortydive head of
diseased cattle forwarded from East Liber
ty Stock Yards to Communipaw, near New
York, all but three . were dead when
the train arrived at its destination. Prob
ably thoae three might as well have been
dead as living. '-
Out of the three hundred and fifty head,
then, that started from the West, in that
consignment, not one got through to New
York in sound condition. It is safe to con
clude that the dead dAresvgaes did not sell
fur more than enough to pay the transpor
tation and other expenses; so that a dead
loss of thirty thousand dollars must have
been Suffered on the lot.
• On the other two lots of diseased cattle,
received at the . East Liberty;yards the loss
was in the same ptoportion.
Growth of the CIV--Imprivements boing
.If a stranger were to visit our city to-day
and make a tout through its avenues in
the old and new. wards, he would be forti
bly impressed with the enter rise of our
people, which Is evident -on all sides. The
city has suddenly awakened from the leth
argy or old fogyism of by-gone days, and
new blood appears. to be infused into her
-veins, Energy and activity are every
where observable, and the -old land marks
of staid Pittsburgh are rapid y disappearing
rapid y
before the, march of impro ement, and we-
daresay the absent citizen eturning, after
a feW years sojourn abroad ould hardly
recognize the smoky city o ft o years ago
in that of to-day. Onr pop tion has rap
idly increased and our city li es have been
carried by populous and cies ly built thor
oughfares for miles beyond t e limits which
once hemmed us in, and o r merchants,
tradesmen and mechanics a e more pros
perous than ever. To thepr sent members
of the City Council much f the progres
sive spirit is due, and we tru t, for the good
of the municipality, all of i ( ; s members may
be returned to their scats, f r they have giv
en unmistakable evidence of enterprise and
have contributed largely to,the, growth and
importance of the city. It is more than
probable that tee census of 1870 will show
a population closely borde ring on ofie hun
dred and fifty thousand or the city proper,
while our sister city and the surrounding
boroughs will contribute enough to swell
the number to over a quarter of a million.
This population stays with us, is not trans
' Rory. It is a mass .of hard-tpiling,
working people, and in that respect far dift
ferent from the population of contempctrary_
western cities. Pittsburgh has a bright
future ahead, and we may live to see her
teeming with a population of half a million
acids. The energies put forward now to
improve her condition will not be lost, 'as
property will materially enhafice• in value
in all the localities where public expendi
tures are being made. • .'
'yesterday, in company with our very
worthy, capable; attentive and efficient
Street Commissioner, John.F. Hunter, Esq.,
we made a flying visit to the various points
now being improved. We found a large
section of the river portion of-Second street
being paved and curbed in splendid style
by a large force of workmen, under charge
of Messrs. Heastings & O'Neill; the con
tractors. - This long needed work is about
accomplished, and the property holders
along the line express great satisfaction at
the improvement effected. Crawford street,
in the old Sixth ward, is undergoing the
process of paving and curbing from Reed
street to Centre avenue. Centre avenue is
being graded, paved and curbed from Din
widdie to Kirkpatrick street. The track of
the Minersyille Passenger Railway 'had to
betorn up in making the improvement, but
we observe that the work of relaying it
has commenced. Wide alley, in the old
Sixth ward, is being graded preparatory to
paving. Gum street, from Cliff to Webster
street, is being graded and paved. Eleven
squares on Liberty street, from Carson to
Tyler street, are being paved and curbed.
This is a heavy contract, bui lt is being car
r ed out in a speedy and satisfactory man
r er. All of the side streets in the- outer
wards have been and are undergoing
repairs. Smallman street, in the Twelfth
ward, is being paved, curbed and
supplied with water pipes from Mor
ton to Taylor street. I Mulberry alley
has just been paved from Taylor to Clymer
street. The water-extension work to,Law
renceville .has reached th the toll gate on
the Penn 'street road. There -are many
other improvements goifig on Which go to
show that the Councils are putting forth
their blest energies to improve the city. In
every quarter- new pavements and curb
stones_ aro going doWn by order of
• the active street
and M'Faclen. than whom there are no
worthier public officers. The quality of
material used in repairing and paving the
new streets is wry superior, and the peo
ple have ample assurance that the work is'
being well done, - when they are told
that Mr.-Hunter daily makes the entir
; round and closely supervises all the wor -
i going on, and sees that everythirig is up t.
~ the letter and spirit of the contract.
Base Ball t---The Game Yesterday.
The match between the Olympicand Ci
cinnati Base Clubs came off at Union
Park yesterday. The attendance was.
(mite large, many of the Spectators being
ladies who seemed-tb take a lively interest
in the game. Several fine playa were
made, and the game, taken as a whole, was

City Treasurership
As the period_ draws nigh for making
nominations for city officers, It is to be
hoped that the citizens of the different
wards will well weigh the matter of select
ing a suitable person to fill this very im
portant office. Experience in the details
of the business is (as in all other branches
of business) of great importance to the
prompt and faithful discharge of the duties
of the office. Whilst I havo"not a word to
urge against any of the Other gentlemen
named in connection therewith, yet I con
sider. the experience of Mr. Allinder, the
present-iucurnbent, , worth a great deal. It
IS no idle compliment to be able to say that
during his whole official career net one
ward of complaint has been uttered against
him, but, on the contrary, his prompt, hon
est and faithful 'discharge of the duties
thereof have met the approval 'of all who
have had business to transact in his office.
Let the business men„ manufacturers, Me
chanics and laborers, then, rally en 'nave
to the primary meetings, anti cast their
votes for Samuel Allinder, the ,tried and
faithful public officer. '
Cruel Neglect. ,
Mary Patch, residing on Pennsylvania
avenue, alleges that her friend, Mrs. Ma
loney, residing on Water street, is about to
leave the Keystone State to make her for
tune in some more congenial clime, and
thus far has neglected to call round and
bid her good bye. Persons often leave
their friends , without saying good
bye, but the neglect in this instance is very
much aggravated by the statement of Mary
that - her friend owes her a little bill of some
eight dollars, which she is afraid will go
traveling too. Ono of Aldermitn Strain's
deputies called on Mrs. Maloney in relation
'to the matter, the final result of which is
that all parties have agreed to take the mat
ter to Court.
The Weed “Faintly Favorite" has only
been in market since the Spring of 1867,
and was first presented to this community
by Major Long the succeeding season.
Sales now 100 to 160 a month.

entirely Upon the fixed facts of science for
its elucidation.
That when we propose to detect diseases
by an examination of the urine alone, being
prepared as we are at our office, No. 132
Grant street, Pittsburgh, with all the chem
ical and microscopic apparatus for testing
. .
it in the most scientific manner, we base
our proposition not upon clairvoyance, spir
itualism, guess-work, hoeus-pocus, or leger
domain, but upon the incontrovertibletacts
of the fixed sciences, and make our deduc
tions in accordance with the immutable
laws thereof.
We believe, that if, for the better un
derstanding of the laws of health, and
the actions of disease, we choose to pene
trate further into the- mysteries of these
conditions by an examination of the "urin
ary secretions" than is usual for medical
men, no squeamishness on the part of the
truly afflicted will deter them from making
application to us for relief.
And more especially will they apply to
us when it is known that our system dwells .
almost entirely upon facts and fi,;ares for
its data; that the wonderful powers of the
microscope are brought into requisition;
that the immutable laws of chemistry
come to our aid; that the fundamental prin
ple of crystallography steps into our assist
ance, and that the mathematical and geo- •
metrical facts in relation to these sciences
furnish us with the figures as it were
which enable us to demonstrate the truths
involved in each particular case.
In the thousands of Came' that we have
thus investigated during a life long prac
tice in Pittsburgh, where we still reside, -
many of them were physicians and men of
scientific attainments, who could see at
once the practicability_of our system. whilst
a large majority were patients of such long
suffering as to have become good judges of
their own aches and pains, and could tell
at once whether their symptoms were cor
rectly described by us or not.
From the former we have received many
commendations; from the _latter many
heartfelt thanks. And we still hope by
the most critical investigation of every
case, and the most scientific treatment of
disease, to continue to merit the patronage
and gratitude of the afflicted, by relieving.
' them of suffering ills, and restoring them
to health, the greatest boon of life.
For the more ready_ accomplishment of
this object, we will hereafter have the as
sistance ofjhos. L. Oldshue, M. D., who
has been educated to the profession under
our own direction, and graduated at the
Philadelphia University of Medicine and
Surgery.- He will assist in all the varied
duties of practice, the preparation of medi
cines, and putting up prescriptions.
We are, therefore, prepared to give
prompt attention to those who arrive by
the railroad cars or steam boats and wish
to depart the same day.
The facilities which packet boats and ex
press lines furnish for quick transportation
of small packages, to and from every point
within five hundred miles of this, place,
make it sufficiently convenient for the
treatment of nearly all chronic diseases.
Persons front a distanice wishing to obtain
medicine for their friends will bring a speci
men of urine for examination, or have it
sent by express.
The friends will be careful to take the
first urine passed after a night's rest; and
in all cases to give their age.
This latter is necessary. to a correct
diagnosis as well as to the regulation of the
doses of medicine prescribed.
We would like to have the name and
residence also of every patient.'
The advantages of this will be apparent
to Ill', but especially to those who may
wish to send back for a second course of
, medicine. •
We keep a regular record of each analysis
and prescription by comparison with
which we are enabled on subsequent exam
inations to determine the improvement in
the case, and make the
,required change in
"treatment when necessary.
Our weekly medical report shows that
we'ihave made and had put up under our
own supervision over three hundred (300)
prescriptions per week: •
-- Of this number there Were:
For Consumption and lung diseases.... 20
" Liver Complaint and Jaundice 26
"Kidney and urinary organs 48
" NeiVOLISI Disorders, fits, ...... 16
Female Complaints, irreghlarities. 24

" Rheumatism, acute and chronic.... 14
" Asthma, shortness of breath 20

Some of these patients reside in Phila
delphia, some in Now York, and some in
etch of the States of Missourl, Illinois, Iu
Ohio Arid WeSt Virginia, and the
rest in Pennsylvania—a large majority be
ing iu the immediate vicinity of Pittsburgh
and the surrounding counties In fact there
is gearcoly town. township or district
within one hundred miles of 'this place but
numbers some _patients who have been
cured by our prescriptiOns after having for
warded by, express specimens of urine for
examination and had the necessary medi
cines sent thorn. •
' This is the cheapest and best way. for
those livingat a distance, as it saves ex
pense of travel and insures an equally cor

All these examinations were conducted
in accordance with the most systematic
principles of Urine-Pathology.
Most Bitters of the present day that are
loudly puffed through the newspapers as
having great curative properties are vile
compounds and base impositions, coiittun
ing no medicinal virtues whatever, and are
really very poor whisky beverages, and,
instead of acting as a stimulant and - tonic,
have a:tendency to weaken the stomach by
entirely destroying the coating. The public
should therefore be very cautions and pur
-1 chase none but Roback's Stomach Bitters,
which have stood the test as a remedial
_agent fox many years, and are really as
their name indicates, a stomach bitters and'
'not a beverage. They combine the proper
ties of the best tonic and a stimulant—a
laxative, an efficient and anti-bilious agent
and the best stomachic known to the world,
and when taken in conjunction with Ro
back's Blood Pitts, are the safest and surest
preventive against all bilious derangements,
thoroughly regulating the whole systein
and giving tope to the digestive organs.
They are highly recommended as an in
vigorating tonic to mothers while nursing,
increasing the flow of milk, and for conva
lescents, to restore 'the prostration which
always follows long-continued sickness,
they are unsurpassed. No household
should consider themselves safe from the
ordinary maladies without these invaluable
medicines. They can be obtained of any
druggist. . risk'
