The Late Thaddeus Stevens—Resolutions In
At a joint meeting of the colored citizens
of Pittsburgh and Allegheny cities, con
vened in the A. M. E. Church, Thursday
evening, August 20th, the following resolu
tions, commemorative of the life and char
acter of the late lamented Thaddeus Stev
ens, were unanimously adopted:
Wut:akLks, It has been the will of Provi
dence to remove by death, on the night of
the 11th of August, 1868, at the seat of gov
ernment, the honored, great and philan
thropic man, Thaddeus Stevens, member
of Congress from the county of Lancaster,
state of Pennsylvania, in the blessings of
whose statesmanship the people now re
Revived, Ist.. That we have watched with
anxious hearts the. Congressional career of
this great, patriot and liberal statesman,
and have ever found him so allied to the
cause of Equal Justice and Human Liberty .
as to write his name in ' letters of' love on
the heart of every member of the proscrib
2d. That by all that is sacred to the love
of Justice and the name of so distinguished
a friend, we deeply mourn the loss of this
noble man and uncompromising advocate
of Human Liberty.
3d. That in the death of Thaddeus Stevens
the country has lost one of her ablest and
most earnest statesman, and the oppressed
of the land a true and tried friend, whose
heart has rightly been prepared for the cri
sis in which he lived, and who, made a -zeal
'ous worker in behalf of the lowly, whom ho
was ever proud to defend.
4th. That we, the colored citizens of the
cities, of Pittsburgh, and • Allegheny and
surrounding districts, wear badges for the
space of thirty days, and that • a copy of
these resolutions be sent for pnbllcation to
the city press, "Christian Recorder," "Zion
Standard" and "Freedmen's Appeal."
A Literary Enterprise.
The Pittsburgh Quarterly Magazine has
taken place amongst the'fixed and perma
nent literary institutions of the city, and the
enterprising publisher, Mr. Wm. O'Dwyer,
has consented to issue it hereafter as a
monthly. This course will sunply a want
long felt in the 'community for a monthly
literary journal, and we have no doubt the
enterprise of tne proprietor will be amply
rewarded. The services of a corps of able
contributors have boon secured and the
publication will be an exceedingly readable
one. As before, Mr. J. Trainor King wilt ,
edit the Magazine, and will continue. to
contribute his article on "Pittsburgh, Past
'and Present." Among the lady contribu
tors will be Miss Carrie Bell Sinclair, a pop
'ular writer. A story by James Blair, EN.,
of London, will be among the features, and
there will be a series of biographical'
sketches of our leading men, with por
traits. The magazine will be printed on
excellent paper and INtsmuch as' new type
have been ordered, we may anticipate the
appearance of a journal which will reflect
the highest credit to our city.
A Watch Thief. -
A young thief named Robinson entered
the residence of Mr. George Alexander, in
Allegheny, a few evenings since and car
off a gold watch which . was lying on
