Laughlin, the other half. The next case called was that of the Com monwealth vs. Teddy McCarthy, indicted on oath of Daniel McMullen for felonious assault and battery. The offense alleged in the indie:ment was committed on the night of July '27th, 1867.. The prosecutor was a Lieutenant on the police force of Mayor McCarthy, and at the time stated he went into Richter's beer saloon,on Penn street, to quell a disturbance. ine in there he was struck on the head with a beer glass, alleged to have been in the hands of the de fendant. .The Commonwealth is repro sqnted by Messrs: Kirkpatrick and Linn, and the defense by Messrs. Swartzwelder and Moreland. Mr. Linn opened the case by briefly narrating the circumstances un der which the offense was committed, and proceeded to call witnesses as follows; - Daniel McMullen, sworn—On or about the 27th of July, 1867, I was in the Fifth ward, in company with Edward Quinn. I was a Lieutenant of the police under May or McCarthy; I was posting the men on their beats; at aboutten o'clock on the, 27th. of July I heard a noise in a saloon on Penn street.. I went in and told Richter, the pro prietor' he had better shut up his house for 1 about twenty minutes; he said ha would, and went out and put, up the shutters. Teddy McCarthy then said he did not care a d—m for the Mayor or any of his police men, and commenced shoving me around. I told him to be quiet, as I did not wish to have any trouble with him. He then -want ed me to take a class of beer; I refused and soon after ho struck me on the head with a beer glass: I was rendered insensible for a time, and don't know how often I was struck after the first time. [Mr. McMullen here ex. hibited to the jury the scar on his head pro duced by the blow from the beer glass in the hands of McCarthy, showing a fracture of the skull.]. I was confined to bed about six weeks after I was hurt', and was at tended by Drs. Dickson; Hamilton, Mc- Cook and others. My limbs were para lyzed and I lost my speech for some time after I received the injuries, and, ,Lhelleve from the effects of those injuries. The im pediments in my speech at this time were produced by the blow on the head. McCar thy, after he struck me, ran across the street. into a drug store. I had no difficul ty with him before this occurrence, but I arrested him about three weeks before. At }the time of the difficulty on the night of the 27th of July I did not say or do any thing out of the way to McCarthy before he struck me. I - On cross-examination the witness said he did not recollect telling the Mayor that he did not know who struck him. In an ex amination before Judge Stowe, at the time of an application for a reduction of the bail, he did not say that he did not know who struck him. He did not know any one in the house but Teddy McCarthy. As he pulled his mace out Teddy struck him. Drs. McCook.aud McDonald were called and testified as to the nature of the injuries inflicted upon McMullen, and his condition at that .time and since. Dr. McCook ti pro -1..). nooced the o inion that McMullen would -never recove tom the effects of the blow on his skull. n reply to a question by Mr. Swartzweider, as to whether an injury like that received by McMullen, would impair a man's memory. Dr. McCook stated that after the recovery of his thinking'faculties, a man who had received such an injury would be able to remember everything dis tinctly up to the time at which the injury was inflicted; his mind would be confused as to events ocourring„subsequently. In this opinion . Dr. MoDonald concurred. At three P. at. Court adjourned' till ten A. is. teeday.. Advise your neighbors to turn out to night in the procession.

Large Repahlleag Meeting. at Blairsville JunctioiLlinterestingSpeeches. • A large and enthuslastio meeting of the Republicans of Westmoreland county was held at Blaiisville Junction, on the Penn sylvania Bailroad, on Saturday evening, the 19th inst. The meeting was organized by selecting the following named officers: President, Israel Gray; Vice President, Col. J. B. Ogden; Secretary, Thomas Estep. The first speaker introduced was H. H. McCormick, Esq., of the Pittsburgh bar, who addressed the meeting In a lengthy and forcible speech. Mr. McCormick air . g .. ued t he reconstruction and the bond ques tion both elaborately, and proved that the policy proposed by the Democratic party would, if adopted and carried result,in the disgrace and ruin of the nation. At the conclusion of Mr. McCormick's address, the Chairman introduced John F. ' Wentling, Esq., of the Greensburg bar. Mr. Wentling reviewed the record of the Demorratio - larty and exposed its hypoc risy and treachery in the past, and argued therefrom what a stupendous and fatal blun der it would be on , the part of the American people to place the control of the Govern & ant once =rein its hands. He reminded the Democrats of their habit, during the war, of howlingat every measure adopted for the suppression of the rebellion as un constitutional, and predicted that in a few years hence they would be as heartily ashamed of their , conduct as were the Tories of the Revolution; Mr. Wentling concluded with an appeal to all present to turn out at the October election and vote to secure the State for Grant and Colfax and the return of Hon. John Covode to Con gress. The , meeting then adjourned with three cheers for, , the Rapublican ticket. The speakers were very handsomely enter tained by Col. J. B.

The Chairman stated the object of the meeting to be, to.take some action in regard to the obstruction of navigation on the river by the pier now being built in the channel at Brady's Bend. ' It seems that a company has been incor porated to build a b.idge across the river at the point named,' and in the pi ogress of the work a pier has been partially comple ted which, it is claimed, is a very great obstruction to the navigation of the stream. Considerable discussion took place in re gard to the matter, partleipated in by a number of lib. se Conversant with the situa tion of the obstruction, all of whom agreed that if it be al loWed' to remain, navigation of the river must be suspended. It was finally concluded to consult legal counsel in the matter, and for this purpose a committee of three, consisting of Messrs. Frederick. Fisher, Thomas Jackson and Captain Ferguson. was appointed and em powered to act in accordance with legal ad ' vice. The meeting then adjourned to convene at the call of the colinnittee.

Morlacchi, the Primo ballorino, is truly an artiste, and fully de serving of the world-wide reputation she enjoys. Her dancing is the poetry of •mo tion, every movement is full of grace and skill; she glides over the stage so light and fairy like as to lead the observer to believe her a moving shadow. She has attained a position in her profession seldom reached by any one, and with all her fame, is as modest as she is brilliant. The lesser lights_ in the troupe are, many of them, fine arils es-and were highly applauded by the audience duri•eg, the entertainment. The audience, notwithstanding the rain, was quite large, and from the manner in which they expressed their approval of the enter tainment, it is, quite evident that "spectac ular" is not yet void of attrac:ion in Pitts burgh Wefrequently hear the question asked, "How is it that ladies's furs are sold at less prices at the great and popular fur estab lishment of William Fletni:,g, 'No. 139 Wood street, than at any other house in the city?" The grpat secret in the cave la this, that the business is so systematized in all branches that in purchasing and selling Mr. Fleming has many decided advantages, so that he is enabled to sell good., at the lowest possible profit that business can be transacted upon—in fact, in many cases this extensive house is able o sell its goods to retail patrons at much ess than 'smaller or old fogy houses have o pay for their stocks.

The Committee consists of Rev - . W. B. Watkins, A. M., of Steuben ville, Ohio; Rev. D. L. Dampsy, D.D., of Beaver, Pa.; Rev. R. H. Hurlburt, of New castle, Pa.; Rey. J. Tribby, of Geneva, Ohio, and Rev. G. Martin and Rev. A. J. Lyda, of Wheeling, West Virginia. The -report.of the Committee shows the paper to be in a most prosperous condition, the receipts being largely in advance of any previous year. The Committee deemed it ' advisable on account of the great increase of editorial labor consequent upon the en largement of the paper. which took place some time ago, to appoint an assistant gdi.;. tor whose time should be wholly dovdted to the duties of the office; and it being con sidered expedient to elect a Minister of one of the patronizing conferences, the choice' fell upon Rev. E. A. Johnson, of James town, New York, who is said to be emi nently qualified to fill the position. The Committee cordially endorse the edit torial management of Rev. S. H. Nesbit,: D.D., and tendering thanks to Rev. W. H. Kinkaid for valuable editorial assistance, which will doubtless still be continued, and to J. A. Moore, Esq., business man ager, for capable and laborious service. Centre Avenue Property, Mlnersville. The handsomely situated and very desi- rable property of W. M.
