poison, but from natural disease. The un
happy suspicion that the' wife had admin
istered poison is thus set aside, and the
sympathy of the entire community is with
the - lady. Journalists should be very care
ful riot to publish such rumors before the
facts or the case are. fully developed. Mrs.
Lanier is an expellent Christian lady, mid
ii is a pity that'sho should have rested un

Sudden Death—Coroner's Ingttest
Under the above caption we published
yesterday an account of the sudden death
'of Mr. E. T. Leiner, of Allegheny City, and
stated that a jury had been impannelled to
hold an inquest and adjourned. Pursuant
to adjournment the jury assembled yester
day at the Coroner's office,when the follow
ing testimony was elicited: ,
Dr John Ilamilton, sworn—l was called
yesterday to see deceased.. On in
spection of the body there was noth.
ing that would lead to the supposition
that he died. of external :injuries. Symp.
toms indicated that the disease. was in the
stomachy'and that - was the first place ex
amined. On opening the abdomen the
bowels were considerably inflamed, and
that portion next the stomach was very
highly inflamed, and the stomach was in a
congested condition, although the mucus
inembrance was preserved intact. The dis
ease was located in the lower part of
the stomach where the bowels connect:
The bowels generally showed - a congested
condition. NVe examined the swallow and
found that it had also been irritated. The
kidneys were both found to have been in
flamed in part, and pus was found in both
of them. The liver was not in a healthy
condition. The lung and heart, so far as
the examination went; showed nothing ab
normal. I saw no special symptoms of
poison. From all the evidence I haye be
fore me and from the post mortem appear
ances there was nothing' that would lead
me to the conclusion that poison had been
used. The deseaso in the kidneys was suf-.
licient to cause death.
Dr. L. IL Willard, sworn—l had been
attending wife of deceased, befoie ho Was
taken sick. I arrived at the house at
half-past eleven A. M. 13th instant. Some
of the inmates told me that Mr. L. had
been taken ill about half past seven o'clock
With vomiting and purging. 1. thought
when I saw him that ho had cholera mor
bus. I supplied the usual remedies; he still
complained of great pain in the stomach,
and considerable nausea. The med
icines I gave him seemed to have
the desired effect. The purging ceased and
he slept. The next morning the vomiting
had returned and he had intense pain in
-the region of the stomach. There seemed
to be a retention of.urine. The vomiting was
a dark color and bloody in appearance,
there being no bile with it. ' These were
about the symptoms he had on the 14th,
15th, and the morning of the 16th, when
the nurse called my attention to a sub
stance he had vomited, which appeared to
be shreds of the mucus membrane tone off
and thrown:up. These symptoms led me
to believe that some irritative substances
had been introduced into the stomach. (hi
the 17th and 18th these symptoms tint
tinned, and there was more blood mixed
with the. matter thrown from the stomach,
and on the evening of the 19th he died;
these symptoms continued up to the time
of his death. _ I

James O'Brien, sworn—The testimony of

The testimony here con c luded, and the
inquest adjourned to meet Thursday even

A fatal accident occurred Friday morn

PITTSBURGH GAZETTE : SATURDAY, AUGUST 22, 1868.
Pittsburgh Female College.
We have frequently invited the attention
of our readers to the claims of this leading
Ladies' School of our State, but as we have
many new readers, and as the time for the
opening of the Fall Term is near at hand,
we copy, with a personal endorsement, the
following from the Pittsburgh Christian
Advocate of this week :
PITTSBURGH - FEMALE COLLEGE
There, are but few of our readers who have
not learned something of the Pittsburgh
Female College. Many, however, have no
adequate idea of its *large 'and beautiful
buildings, its ample Faculty, and of its un
surpassed facilities in all the solid and orna
mental lAunciles of a liberal education.
For the information of all who have daUgh
ters, to edricate, we condense a few of the
more important items.
The buildings, 148 feet in length by 100
in width, are among the mcst substantial
as well as beautiful and convenient,' in all
their appointments, in the country. The
Chapel, Parlor, Dining :Hall and Library
are spacious and fitted up in excellent style.
The school room and those for boarding pu
pils are large - airy, well lighted and ven
tilate'd, and admirably adapted for their
intended purposes. A large number of
workmen are engaged larepainting, grain
ing, and varnishing much. of the interior
wood work, and Messrs. WFarland clz.. Col
lins are furnishing some of the halls with
new matting and carpets. Thus beautified
and furnished, the buildings are an honor
to the city, and to the Trustees as well.
Not the least important point about the
college is its admirable location—just be
tween the two bridges which are the great
thoroughfares between the two cities; with-.
in ten minutes , walk of the termini of ,alit
the railroads, save one,
and of almost ever's , .
important point in Pittsburgh; it is, never
theless,as quiet and retired as though in a
small chuntry town. The pupils are thus
saved from the din and clatter of business
thoroughfares, and the jostle of the crowds
which throdg, the more public streets.
The trees which line Hancock street not
only add to the beauty of the location, but
afford a most delightful promenade during
the hours of recreation. The city has no
equally advantageous location fora school.
Every teacher employed in the Institu
, tion has had from live to twenty-tire years'
*experience. No pains or expense are spared
in the selection of teachers, and those only
are chosen who have made teaching a pro
fession, and who by previous culture and
experience have demonstrated their fitness
for the work. The most ample arrange
ments have been made for the coming year
by the employment of twenty-two teachers.
Tiie course of study is thorough and ex
tensive, and arranged with great care. It is
confidently believed, that in this respect it
is superior to most institutions and second
to none. The methods of teaching are
naidern and thorough, asi, has been eyi
ftlen cod by the searching exanunatiolis
throug'h which the pupils have passed—(•"l
- conducted not simply in the
prii.winec of committees appointed by the
Conference and Trustees—but in repeated
instances the classes have b e e t) fa xani h i ,d

exclusively music - schools can thus he en

distant parts, and the peculiar advaot iges
atiorded by the city in the matter of Con
certs, Lectures, Prof. Gustave
the distinguished comp , ser and teach
er, has charge el the den:it - intent.
tOwin'g to the liberal policy pursued by
the trustees, : whi.se single aim is to build up
an institution of the highest grade, and to
put a finished education within the reach
of the largest number of really deserving
pine , ladies, the! ex rienSes are far less than
many instituttiMs haVing fewer teachers , l
and facilities, and little, it any, more .han !
K tuall .iountry seminaries. While every
appointment of the
i College is of t h e first
order, the expenset are less than one half
those of many other schrmils.
WO C:111 11105 t heartily commend the Col
lege to those who desire for their daughters
an institution %which cOmbines through cul
ture with the influences of a Christian
home, and are pleased to learn that the.
prospects of the next term, which commen

No 123 Federal street, Allegheny, was
entere I by burglars, Thursday night or
earl , : Friday morning, and a large quanti
cv of clothing and furnishing goods ab
stracted therefrom. An entrance to the
collar sunder the store was gained through
a small coal hole On a little alley in the rear
of the building. From ',the cellar they
gained access to the store room by cutting
a hole through a door at the head of a stair
way leading from the cellar, by which
means they were Mile to Open the door.
(hue iti the store they proceeded to erect
screens across the frOnt windoWs so that
they could Operate without being seen.
They then ransacked all the drawers on
one side of the store, made very judicious
selections of fine white shirts, undercloth
ing, neck-ties, collars, suspender:, and other
goods in that line. They also selii.eted some
tine suits or custom made clothing, just
ready for delivery, together with a number
of suits front the stock of ready made cloth
ing; the exact number of which cannot at
present 6e ascertained. The thieves seem
to have worked
.very leisurely, as several
pairs of pants, besides coats and vests.

found strewn over the store. They also
inspected a large drawer tilled with trim
mings; and 'when they had satisfied them•
selves with arlieles in that line, scattered
the remaining contents over the door. One
of the parties left an old suit of elethes,
and their apt:ear:Mee would indicate that
the owner was sadly in need of a "raise' of
some kind. /trier having taken their choice
of gOods, the thieves removed the lock front
„the door in the rear of the store, and loft

The robbe6 , was not discoYered until the
next morning when one of the salesmen
opened the store, notwithstanding there is
a privr.e Watchman eolployed by the
merchants of that locality.

Pittsburgh Manufaeturers--A. few Words
Abou'i the Premium Trunk Factory.
Few of our readers have any proper idea
of the extent and magnitude of the trunk
manufacturing busines, of this city. It has
often been remarked in these columns that
the public hardly recognize the fact that
outside of iron, glass, 'steel and coal, the
city should have reputation abroad; that
the multitude of other trade articles escape
attention. Within a few years, under the
impulse of young blood and enterprise the
tr nk trade has arisen from insignificance
to .ccupy a high position,.and no longer is
a • ast trade suffered to pass our doors to
en ich rival houses of Philadelphia, Boston
or i "ew York. Here at home we have fac
to .ies and business houses engaged in the
tr nk and valise business which are so per
fe tly organized, so complete in all
ttr ir, , departments, so carefully man
ag :d and conducted as to compote success
fu ly with any eastern or western contem
po aries, and prove a matter of just pride
to the city which contains them.
1t is not our purpose to-day to speak of
a the more prominent houses of this char
s ter, but to single out one to show how
e - tensive has grown the trade. Nearly
e •erybody is acquainted with the Premium
unk Factory, No. 104 Wood street, and
it: active, shrewd, enterprising and go
a ieadative proprietor, Mr. Joseph Liebler.
is gentleman, who is at the head of this
h ge establishment as sole proprietor, is
o e of our youngest business men, and pro
s inently represents the self-made manu
facturers of the city. Commencing but a
few years ago he has succeeded just in pro
portion to his large measure of capability
and enterprise. He has gradually but
surely extended his business and enlarged
his facilities for manufacturing, and to-day
finds himself at the head of a house
transacting annually a largo trade
and standing most prominent in that
particular department of manufacture.
His success, though great, was by no
means undeserving. It was worked for
zealously and came as the jug reward of
well directed exertions. We have no
figures at hand to show the enormous busi
ness annually transacted by this house, but
,that it is immense is evidenced from the
constant shipment of goods and from the
great popularity which the Premium Trunk
Factory enjoys. The great pains taken in
order that nothing but the very best quality
of material and workmanship shall. enter
into the trunks, valises and carpet-bags
which leave the establishment , has been
the best guar.intee for its continued pros
We cannot imagine why dealers in trunks
and goods in that line generally should di
rect their orders to the East, as they are af
forded a better quality of goods here at
home at Leibler's, at less prices. They
economize not only by securing popu
lar prices, but likewise save large
items of expense in the way of - fare,
freight, hotel expenses and time. Hence it
is clearly apparent that they save money
by making all of their purchases at NO. 104
Wood street, the recognized trunk .head
quarters of Western Pennsyl n
view of the fall trade which promises to
open brightly. Mr. Liebler has in store one
of the iargest and most- carefully selected
and varied snicks to be found this side of
New York. It embraces all styles of trav
eling, Saratoga, family, bed-chamber, and
ordinary trunks, patent and sole • leather
valise:;, hand sacques, carpet bags, port
folios and everything in the line of trade,
so Unit neither a wholesale or retail custo
mer need leave the house without making
a selection. The prices have been marked
down to suit the stringency of the money
market and great - bargains are offered.
Having had long personal acquaintance
with Mr. Liebler, we are glad to witnes
tho rapid advance lie has made in reaching
the tirA place in his business and bespeiik

West Virginia 011,Begions.
The producers and dealers in West Vir
ginia Lubricating Oil recently held
. a meet
ing at Parkersburg In reference to the many
imitations that are now put upon the mar
kets and sold as pure Natrona oil. Circu
lars calling attention to this fact, and giving
the method 01 detecting these spurious oils,
can ho had from Messrs. Wesley Wilson
Co., No. 167 Wood street. With the ad
vent of cold Weather these imitations will
become thick and clotted, and cannot be
used at all. Purchasers won ul do well by
securing a supply, and thus anticipate the
further advanee that will follow when these
fraudulent imitations chill.

Most Bitters of the present day that are
loudly puffed through the newspapers as
haying 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 elating. The public
should therefore be very cautious and par
chase none but .Roback's Stomach Bitters,
which hve stood the test as a remedial
agent foz 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
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 s,ystem
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
