The South Pittsburgh Grant and Colfax
Club held a meeting at the Public School
House, Tuesday evening, which was large
ly attended, and at the opening hour, the
President, William H. Barker, ascended:
the platform, and announced that the Club
had, in connection with the Republicans of
Monongahela borough, erected a stand at
the south end of the bridge, and that their
friends were there waiting on them. He put
the question whether the meeting would
adjourn to meet with their friends l a Mo
nongahela,when the meeting unanimously
voted aye, and, preceded by the Washing
ton Cornet Band, marched to a stand situ
ate near the aoute end of the Monogahela
Bridge, when, after music by the band, and
a song by the Glee Club, led by Prof. John
A. Jones, the Chair introduced Major. A.
M. Brown,' who - proceeded to address the
meeting in a most able and eloquent man
The Band then discoursed some excellent
music, which was followed by a song from
the Glee Club.
R. J. Powers, Esqillowed in an argu
mentative and telli speech, and 1
cluded in an earnest a peal to all to stand
by Grant and Colfax and the old flag.
John Glenn, of Kentucky, was next in
troduced. He had been sent to Kentucky
on recruiting duty, and because he had en
listed negroes he was ostracised by the
rebels there, and forced to leave the State.
The rebel sentiment pervaded all parts of
Kentucky, and of oourse the majority were
in full sympathy with Seymour and Blair.
The meeting was one of the largest ever
held in the borough, and - the greatest en
thusiasm was manifested. -- __-- • k

The following very sensible paragraph
we take from the Monongahela Republi-
We are likely to have this road built at
last. Our readers may have noticed that
the Baltimore and Ohio Company pur
chased the Western section of this road
some time ago, and measures are now be
ing taken to get the releases between here
and Washington into a formal shape. We
are informed by a reliable correspondent
that the Efernpfield will be put under con
tract at a very early day. Should this be
so, and a connection be made with the Con
nellsville near West Newton, Pittsburgh
had better wake up to the importance of
building the Monongahela Valley road, or
their trade will suffer by being diverted to
Baltimore via the llemptleld and Connells
ville. Pittsburgh has hitherto done but
little In the way of building railroads, and
if this draining of all the trade of the upper
part of this valley in another direction, does
not, rouse them, then we think they would
not wink if lightning should strike them.
There seems now to be some prospect that
our town may be brought into commUnica-
Mon with the outward world, not so much
perhaps by our own energies, as by the en
terprising foresight of other people. Let us
attend the meeting. of the friends of the
Valley Road on. Saturday, August lath, and
give it all the aid in our power.

The committee reported the following
resolutions which f were unanimously
adopted :
WIIEREAS, We have this day learned
that at twelve o'clock last night at the seat
of Government, and in sight of the Naties
al Capitol, the scene of his greatest achieve
ments, Thaddeus Stevens, the great Com
moner, died in the harness of public life,
"passing away quietly and calmly without
a struggle as thongh falling asleep."
Resplved,_That in his death the country
at large has sustained the loss of a brilliant
statesman and a noble patriot, and the State
of Pennsylvania, indebted to him as she is
for the common schools which adorn her
cities, towns and villages, and upon whose
legislation for half a century, back the im
press of his great mind is imperishably
stamped, mourns for her ablest and great
est son.
.Resolved, That we regard the death of this
great champion of human rights and his ro
['loyal from the National Councils asa public
calamity, and that we shall ever consecrate
his name and fame with that of the bone
factors of our the lategt posterity as,
the great moral hero of his time; always
battling for the , right and for the oppressed
against the oppressors, :unawed by the
frowns of power and unmoved by the blan
dishments of political station or success.

The Proposed City Park.
The Committee appointed by Councils to
select grounds for a City Park, have visited
several proposed sites, the. last of which
was their visit to the Winebiddle property,
on the Pittsburgh and Greensburg turn
pike.' The Committee were received and
entertained by Mr. Phillip Winebiddle, in a
very hospitable manner, and shown over
his farm, which covers the area of abou t
imb hundred acres, and adjoining property
to the extent of four hundred acres.
The Committee were well pleased with
the Winebiddle and adjoining property,
but of course could make no decision until
after visiting all the available localities in
the neighborhood..
They also visited the Schenley estate, ly
ing back of Oakland and the property of
D. H. French, between Oakland and the
Monongahela river, on Four Mile Ran,
Linden grove, the property ofJas. S. Craft,
all comprising about six hundred acres,
extending . from, the Greensburgh pike to
the Monongahela river. From portions of
this site magnificent views of the Monon
gahela Valley and the valley around East
Liberty can be obtained, as well as portions
of the old city. The site is undoubtedly
a favorable one, and the Committee are
well nleased with It.
The entire day was spent by the Com
mittee in the examination Of the grounds
above mentioned, and the! greatest diffi
culty they will have to encounter will not
be to find available grounds, but to make a
selection from the many excellent and
beautiful sites in the neighborhood.
They have received an invitation to visit
a tract cf land in the vicinity of Hazle
wood, on the Pittsburgh and Connelleville
Railroad, which till receive their attention_

One Evening This Week
We met twenty-sevencaws and nine pigi
on. North Avenue, Allegheny. As they
were not in drOves, but quite undriven and
at liberty, we felt that they really took up
too much room. The next morning as we
were musing over this we met on Market
and Fifth streets seven wheelbarrows trun
dling along the sidewalks, and driving to
the right and left and covering with mud
and grease thasimple people who had fond
ly imagined that the sidewalks were for
the use and comfort of pedestrians. On
remonstrating with one. Celtic gentleman
for his wheelbarrow's conduct we were
greeted with "d—n you, keep ant of the
road, and to h—l with ye."l This remark
caused tie to look about to see if there were
any witnesses to our humiliation, when to
our shame we found four policemen walk
ing in the rear and evidently enjoying our
degradation. We could do nothing, for if
we had pitched into our Celt these police
men would, all tour, have nabbed us and
had a clear case of assault and battery, and
we could'nt appeal to the law, for it was
laughing at us out of the mouths of the
quartette of policemen. So we were forced
to do nothing but reflect that we rather
preferred the cattle plague of the Alleghe-,
nv streets to the wheelbarrow nuisance,
,and‘Supercilious inefficiency of some of the
,Pittsburgh police.

A Question.
John McGrath on the. 10th Instant made
information before the Mayor, charging
Richard Best with keeping a ferocious dog,
and,at the hearing, which •took, place last
evening, a legal question was raised that
will probably have to be decided in the
Conti. Mr. Best disclaims any knowledge
of the whereabouts of the, dog at present,
andlurther alleges that the dog does not
belong to him, and never did. ;The prose
cutor allsges that the Accused hi bored the
dog, and ha done so fort'severidyeainii. It
appeus, however, that the dog is claimed
by a brother-in-law of Mr. Best, who resides
in the same house with him. The prose
cutor simply desires that th e dog shall be
killed, and Insists that the defendant shall
kill him. The question then is whether a
man is responsible for the actions of-a dog
tipon which he has- no claims?, His Honor
would not take the reSponsibility of, deelii
ing the point, and held the caso for Court.
The Sinclair 'Bawdy House Case.
Several prosecutions have originated out
of the Sinclair bawdy house case, an ao
count of which we published yesterday,
and the interest manifested in them by
men with pretentions to respectability is
truly remarkable. Yesterday morning a
bearing took place t in the surety case_
,Wilham Hartz, in which Maggie
McClarren, one of _the inmates of Mrs.
Sinclar's establishment, was prosecutrix i
and Hartz was held to bail in the sum of
three hundred dol ars for his appearance
_l4 Court. Hartz t en made information
charging Maggie cClarren with fornica
tion-, and Maggie waiving a hearing gave
4 ,
bail for her appearance at Court. The fair
but frail creatutepad not the slightest dif
ficulty in good and sufficient
bail., Several men who aspire to the posi
tion of gentlemen, were present, all anx
ious for the , honor of serving her in that
In many instances prosecutions of this
character are instituted through purely
personal motives,, either for the sake of
gain or of gratifying some personal feeling
of revenge and for aught we know this may
be one of them, but if,such is'the case, it
does not follow that gentlemen should be
so gallant as to deem it an honor to aid the
"persecuted," • in their hour of trouble.
Such, however, a pears to be the case. The
time has been in is city as in many others,
that a man maki any pretensions to re
spectability, woul scarcely visit a house of
that character, but if he did so far wander
from the, path of morality, he would en
deavor to conceal the fact instead of seek
ing opportunities to openly acknowledge
it. • If these gentlemen desire noto
riety of that character,
thty are welcOme
to it, and hereafter, so far as we are Con
cerned, they shall have it.' We will wake
it a rule to publish the names of all
young men' connected with cases of this
character, hereafter. ,
Nottingham Lace Curtains—Bates &
'lhe Rent Case and Its Sequel.'
In yesterday's GAZETTi :we published an
account of a case of alleged false pretence,
in which Henry Boin was prosecutor, and
Louis Segrist was defendant, and stated
that the accused had been arrested and
held for a hearing. It appears, as stated in
our previous notice of the case, that Bein
bad leased a tavern stand in McClure
township, and that subsequently Segrist
purchased the property of -the party from
whom Bein had leased, and the lease was
legally transferred to him. As was his
right, Segrist called upon Bein and collec
ted the rent, amounting to sixty-five dol
lars, stating that he had purchased the
lease, but after he bad , received and receipt
ed for the money, he left the premises, Bela
became impressed with the idea that he
had been defrauded out of the mon
ey, and resolVed to have his money back.
Tuesday evening, Bein, in company with
his bar keeper, John Sinurtz, were in the
city, and met Segrist, and without think
ing of the consequence seized upon him
and conducted nim to the Mayor's office,
where an information was made against
him, charging him with obtaining money
under false pretence. The case was called
up for a hearing, but the Attorney for the
prosecution, finding he had no case, the
charge was withdrawn, and the prosecutor
paid the costs. - The MSC did not terminate
here, however, as Segrist. not relishing the
treatment ho had received at the hands of
his captors, made information, charging
them with assault and battery. They were
arrested and held for a hearing, but the
case will probably be compromised.

Alleged Delinquencies of a Husband
Arabella Meckill made information yes
terday against her husband, Wm. Meckill,
for assault and battery, larceny and aban
donment. According to the statement of
the prosecutrix, on Tuesday evening her
husband demanded seventy-five ,dollars
from her, which.- had been placed in her
hands for safe keeping by her father. She
refused to give him themoney, which
greatly enraged him, but before commenc
ing actual hostilities, he tried entreaties
and threats. Failing in these, he conclu
ded by knocking her down and- taking the
money Which was concealed in the boscim
of her dress. Since the time of this occur
rence Mrs. Meckill says she has seen noth
ing of him or heard - of his whereabouts,
and she is uneasy-lest he is gone never to
return. Sho promises to grant him full
pardon for his misdeeds and allow him to
keep the money if he returns, which is cer
tainly a fair proposition. In the meantime
the Alderman's police will see -,what they
can do in the way of turning him up.

Bone Boiling Nubatten
The operation of converting into glue tho
brnes of the deceased diseased cattle, at
East Liberty, still continues to sorely an
noYNt:he inhabitants of that good locality.
They say the atmosphere is so charged
with the abominable and outrageous stench
(language fails toldescribe it) as to render
tho vicinity almost uninhabitable and
something must be done immediately to
abate this nuisance.

-It is rather provoxing when a person flees
from the heat and dirt and contaminated
air of a crOwded city in search of cooler
shades and more aromatic breezes, and
finds them; to have 2no of these establish
ments inaugurated afterwards, poisoning
the air all:around and rendering life in the
vicinity, a Positive burden instead of a
blessing. ,
A Smart Bey.
A small but in one sense a smart boy en

Mr. Gotham, on Ohio street, Alleghe

lady, attendant . : if. sfie , eould wive him
change for a five dollar bill, put
ting his hand into his pocket at the same
time as if to draw out the bill; The lady
began to count out the change and had laid
down a two dollar bill on the counter when
the smart boy seized it and made off. The
Allegheny police were notified of the oc
currence and they commenced to search
for the chap, but have not succeeded in cap

Most Bitters of the present day that are
loudly puffed through the newspapers as
having great curative properties are vile
compounds and base impositions, contain
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. Thepublic
should therefore be very cautious and pur
chase none but .Rgback's Stomach Bitters,
which lave stood the test as a remedial
agetit fox many years, and are really as
their name indicates, a stomach bitters and
not a_ beverage. They combine the roper
.ties of the best tonic and a stimu u
an efficient and anti-bilious agent
and the best stomachic known to the world,
and when taken in conjunction with Bo
back's Blood Pills, are the safest and surest
preventive against all bilious derangements,
thoroughly regulating the whole system
and giving tone 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. TrsF
