Matthew Keep, indicted for forcible entry
and detainer, the jury returned a verdict
of not guilty, and directed that the defend
hnt pay one-half the costs, and_ the prosecu
tion, Wm. 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
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

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. Ogden, the Vice Presi.
dent of the meeting.
Say by your appearance in procession to
night that. Allegheny county will give ten
thousand majority for Grant and Colfax.
Aiteghenv . Bridge Navigation
According to published 'call, a meeting
of Lumber men, Steamboatnien Oil
men and others interested in the naviga
tion of the Allegheny river was hold yes
terday afternoon, at three o'clock, in the
rooms of the Petroleum Association, Dal
zells's- building, corner Duquense Way and
Irwin streets.
Capt. Geo. W. Cochran Was called to the
Chair; and Capt. J. T. Stockdale chosen
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.
Every Republican is w
procession tonight.

notwithstanding the unfavorable aspect of

been for the shrewdness and foresight of

modest as she is brilliant. The lesser lights_
in the troupe are, many of them, fine

The annual meeting of the Publishing
Committee of this paper was held yester!
- day at their office in Singerly's building,
Third avenue. 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.
