bad faith in the intelligence of the people,
and believed these- efforts would fail of
their intended effect, and that the party

these same rebels and their sympathizers
through the ballot-box as they had through
the cartridge box.

who entertained the assemblage for over an
hour, referring in eloquent terms to the
great fight, now progressing for the supre

That the Republicans of Beaver- county
are keenly alive to the great issues of the
hour. wastimply evictenciea By one of the
largest political, gatherings that ever as
sainbled•within its limits , on Friday: even
mg, in the town of Beaver. The people
turned out en masse and the meeting grew
to such massive proportions that the com
modious Court House was found 'eritirelY
too small for the occasion, and an adjourn
ment to the public grounds surrounding it
was rendere.d necessary. Messrs. Donley
and Thos. M. Marshall addressed the
meeting. The latter made one of the most
powerful speeches, of the campaign, mid
though his remarks filled two hours anda
half and extended beyond midnight, the

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,
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. ,
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
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
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:

The Benniughoff Robbery Four More
The Titusville Het aid says: The-interest
in the I3enninghoff robbery, upon which so
much has been said and written, has by no
means subsided in this section; but, on the
contrary, it has been kept in a very lively
state by occasional rumors of new "strikes"
by the police - and detectives, and by re
ports about the condition, prospects and
intentions of the robbers who are in dur
ance vile at Franklin. 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,
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.
The Delifield Mission Sabbath School
yesterday was opened for the first
time in. the now and elegant church
edifice recently erected. `The scholars wore
much delighted with the change from the
humble quarters they had left. A number
of zealous christian ministers and laymen
made short addresses to the scholars pre
paratory to the re-organization of the
classes. The school now. numbers about
one hundred and fifty as brig , ‘t-eyed and
Intelligent children as can be mustered to
gether in the city, and under the tuition
and care of such philanthropic gentlemen
as Messrs. Dilison, Carlisle, Loyd, McMas-
ter, Lawton and others, the pupils cannot
fail to grow up worthy ornaments to society
and religion.

This Soap hag been, by a peculiar process, freed
from the excess of alkali aLoost invariably found
even in the purest Soaps. and at the same time it Is
made to take up a large quantity of Glycerine (40 -
per cent. It is to tats latter substance that it
chiefly owes its soothing quality—softening the skin,
preserving the complexion, preventing chapping
and the untileas.nt roughness experienced itt cold
weather. It Is found must useful in alleviating the
irritation produced by dryness of the skin. On ac
count of its great purity it recommends itself to all
persons that suffer from the use of common Soaps;
for delicate skins it is toe only leoap that can be tol
erated. it Is pntrticularly useful for cleansing db.-
eased skins, where the Irritation produced ti] ordi
