Order having been restored, the Presi dent of the Club introduced; W. •A, Leg gate, Esq., who made a stirring address. His remarks were brief, but pointed, and their effect on the crowd was made mani fest in hearty applause. Mr. Ripley followed in a short speech, in which he referred to the efforts of orators of the opposition party to mislead the peo ple from the true issue in the contest. He bad faith in the intelligence of the people, and believed these- efforts would fail of their intended effect, and that the party who had saved the country from destruc tion by rebel hands would , triumph over these same rebels and their sympathizers through the ballot-box as they had through the cartridge box. The next speaker was J. la. Kerr, Esq., who entertained the assemblage for over an hour, referring in eloquent terms to the great fight, now progressing for the supre macy of Republican principles. --- He traced the doctrine of secession from its inception to its final and complete overthrow under the captain of the age, Gen.

Schurz at City Hall would be in Gerinan, and consequently Uninteresting to those not familiar with the language, the English Clubs he hoped would not occupy the hall, as it would doubtless be filled by German citizens. Mr. T. W. Davis, from the Seccond ward Grant club, therefore exten ded aninvitation to all tho English clubs to meet with the Second ward club at Wilkins' Hall, Fourth street, .at nine o'clock. He stated that the Second ward Glee club and an excellent brass band would be iu attend ance, and'he thought they could be pleas antly entertained for an hour. On motion, the ibvitation was accepted, after which the meeting adjourned. Row on Third Street A disgraceful fight occurred yesterday evening on Third street, near Smithfield, between John Crisler and William Row. It appears that the parties were both drunk, and had been amusing --them selves on Third street by upsetting boxes and - barrels from the sidewalk into the street. Crisler, when be could find nothing else to tumble over, shoved Row off the sidewalk, whereupon Row knocked him down, and a general fight ensued in which Row proved the better man. After getting Crisler down and pounding him for some time, during which he lost his shirt, Row, fearing the police might get around that way, left him and went up Third street. Crisler, although Pretty badly beaten, was not satisfied and started /n pursuit of. Row. At Smithfield street the parties again came together with much the same'result as be fore. An immense crowdd had assemble by this time, and Chief preen seeing It started in that direction, when both parties fled. The Chief followed Row, and after a short chase captured him and conducted him to the lock , up. Crisler sucoaeded in Making his escape and has not yet been arrested. Larceny of a Hat. Mr. J. J. Walker, while engaged at a game of billiards, Saturday, at •the:Revero House, hung his coat and hat on a hook, and during the game some enterprising young man picked up the bat, and, it is allsged, took a pocket book out'of the coat pocket, containing $4O. The fellow who ap propriated the hat left the saloon, but it appears only reached the side-walk in front of the house, where he became involved in &quarrel with a drunkeniman, and the two were arrested for disorderly conduct and taken before the Mayor, who committed them for twenty-four hours. Shortly after the officer had departed with them for the jail Mr. Walker came in the office and made known,hie loss, whereupon be was shown a hat hich Thomas Johnson, one of the parties just committed, had secreted under his coat, and which had been taken from him by the officer who arrested him. Walker at once identified the hat, and made information against Johnson charging him with the larceny of the hat and money. A commitment was lodged against him to answer the charge at Court. , Saengerfest. We dropped in at the Rink on Saturday and found workmen busy in preparing a large fountain In the centre of the exten sive floor. From this fountain jets of water and spray, illuminated by - a multitude of gas-lights, cannot fail to elicit the admira tion of the thousands who will attend the great exhibition. The fountain will be 'ringed by a rustle border of moss covered stones. Numbers of large basket boqueta pendant from the ceilings, and numerous singing birds, will be among the charming features of the coming feast. That every thing suggested by good taste and ample means will be done for the decoration of the Rink, is Assured by the Met that the well known floriculturists'and seed merchants, Messrs. Elliott Brothers, 116 Marketstreet, have undertaken the Job. ' Fatal Accident on the. Allegheny Valley Railroad. We published in Saturday's GAZETTE a brief account of a collision on the Alleghe ny Valley Railroad, near Rollston Station, about thirty-nine miles north of this city, since when we have obtained the following details: At 11:27 A. I. a regular freight train bound north, drawn by engine No. 13, approached the curve on time, when it met a special train, consisting of the pay master's car and a baggage car, drawn by engine No. 21, - bound south. Both trains - were moving rapidly, and when the en gineers discovered the danger the locenio tives Were so near together that it was im possible to avoid a collision. Every effort was made, but the locomotives came to gether with heavy force, and both were thrown from the track. The fu eman of No. 13, named Hardy, was caught between the locomotive and tender, and a long time elapsed before he could be rescued. He suffered intensely and prayed his friends to kill him and put him out of his agony. 'At last he was released and removed to Kittanning,where he expired Friday even ing at seven o'clock. He resided in the Fifteenth ward of this city, and his remains were brought home on Saturday last. The engineer, Mr. Walters, was also injured, bat it is thought he will recover. The lo comotives were both more or less damag ed. Some of the officers of the road, we are informed, were in the paymaster's car, but escaped unhurt. If our information in regard to the affair is correct, it is quite evident that the ac cident was the result of carelessness on the part of Some one, whether the party in charge of the special train, or the engineer of the regular train, we are unable to say. It Is alleged that the special train was run ning on the time of the regular train, and that it had not been announced, which, if so, is not only culpable carelessness but highly criminal, as a collision would be the naturalzeonsequence of such carelessness. A Home Educational Institute and Who Recommend Its Faculty. The first session of the Pittsburgh Male and Female Seminary, Nos. 22 and 24 Fifth 'street, will open on Monday, September 7th. - The course of study will be exten sive, and - will" embrace all the English branches, German, French, Book Keeping, etc. Special attention will be given to the English branches, as they are the founda tion of a solid education. and in this depart ment able and experienced instructors have been employed. The Principal, Prof. L Gourley, will spare no efforts to make the school second to none in the State, and his former success leaves no doubt of the result. The male and female departments, it may be proper to say, will be separate. The Principal can be seen daily at the rooms on Fifth street. Few gentlemen of this community could secure such hearty and unqualified endorsement as the fol lowing from our leading educators and scholars: Knowing Prof. H. I. Gourley to be an earnest, energetic and suzcessful teacher, as well as a gentleman and scholar, we heart ily commend him, and the seminary which he is about to open, to the favor and patron age of the people: George J.

Reports have been circulated within a week or two to the effect that the police were about to secure parties implicated in the robbery, about whom the public had heard nothing, and the move ments of certain officers who were thought to be working up a new case were watched closely. Yesterday these rumors took de finite shape, three men who have been working as engineers in the vicinity of Bull Run having been arrested on the charge of having participated in the rob bery. It appears that some time since De puty Sheriff Kinney, of Petroleum Centre, got hold of a clue to what is alleged to be the gang which perpetrated the robbery, but which is wholly unconnected with that which was led by Jim Sager, of Sieger town. From time to urns Mr. Kinney has succeeded in obtaining the information which led to the arrest above mentioned. The names of the parties are suppressed at the request of their friends. The full par ticulars attending the implication and ar rest have not yet transpired. Beligerant' Barbers Edward Inger made information before Mayo. Drum, Saturday morning, charging Henry Blackmer° with aggravated assault and battery. The parties are colored bar bers and reside in Temperanceville. Bluckmore was arrested and had a partial hearing before the 'Mayor_ He states that he had been left in charge of a barber shop in 'Demperanceville, • belonging to his son invlaw. Inger was employed in the shop, but yesterday he came to work consider ably intoxicated. He was ordered out of the shop, and upon refusing to obey, "suf ficient force" to eject him was used. Inger was badly beaten , about the _face, an ugly cut being apparent on the chin„while both eyes wero swollen so much as-to seriously interfere with his facultyof seeing. Black more denied having inflicted the injuries, and asserted that Inger must have been in another difficulty. Blackmer° was held for a a further hearing. In new Quarters.
