Second Avenue Again.
A few days since we stated that themater
pipe on Second avenue had bursted, injur
ing the street to, such an extent as to ob
struct travel upon it, and also stated that
the cause of the difficulty waslhe worn out
water pipe. The work: referred to at that
time was repaired, but, as it was done, as
on former occasions, by merely replacing
the broken joint with a new one which of
course had to be connected with an old
worn out pipe at either end, the result was
as before. Monday afOrnoon thepipe
bursted in another place, a • few feet, from
where it, had been repaired, causing the
street to cave in for several feet, and again
-making it necessary to turn travel from that
thoroughfare. It is too, late, we Rresume,
to take up the old pipe and replace' it with
a nec one this season, and the probabilities
are, that the citizens in that locality will
have to carry water from some other point
all winter, but the meer should be at

Latest . from Temperanceville.
Temperanceville, .across the rivek 'is
achleviiig quite a brilliant reputation in
the way Of sensations of late. Added to
the former elopements, attempted mur
ders, mail and highway robberies, it has
had, as the latest, another elopement. The
victim was a shoemaker, his victimizer an
interesting Western gentleman. The West
ern gentleman had been stopping at the
shoemaker's house, and ingratiated him
self into the good opinion of all, especially,
as it seems, of the wife. A few days
ago the shoemaker had occasion to visit
Pittsburgh, to procure a supply of mater
ial to carry on his business. He returned
late in the evening, but found things-some
what changed, wife gone, western gentle
man gone, furniture gone, house desolate.
The neighbors say the last they saw of the
pair was shortly after the shoemaker had
left his domicil. They were hurrying along
the main thoroughfare of the thriving little
town followed - by a wagon filled with fur
niture. The shoemaker bewails the loss of
How he Got Ills Boots.
Thomas Burns was in need oC a pair of
boots and took a rather dulalous.but cheap
way of getting them. Entering
. the store
of Mr. A. Flinger he called for a nair and
after examining them stated to the store
keeper that his socks were a little dirty
and wet, and if he was allowed to take
them across the street to his boarding
house he would try them 'on
.dyer a dry
pair of socks and if they suited, he would
come back and pay for them, the price be
ing six dollars. Under the peculiar air
tiftmstances of the case he was allowed to
take them away, but up to latest accounts
.had not linishod trying' them on, or lit
least had not returned according to 'agree
ment. Mr. Pliustor waited on Alderman
MeMasters yesterday and made affidavit to
the above statement, upon which a war
rant was issued for the arrest of Thomas on
a charge of larceny as bailee.

New YorKers in PlWaurgli.
The ridiculous farce, wb.".ch has engaged
the attention of newspaper reporters, scan
dle-mongers and others, including His
Honor, the Mayor„-for several days past,
has been nearly play ad out—one more rise
and fall of the curtain and the play will
end. Enough has already been. seen to dis
close the plot, and a most shallow. flimsy
'and disgraceful affair it proves - to be. At
the time appointed' tor the hearing yester
dtiy the parties all appeared except the
prosecutrix, Mrs. Bevins, who detained the
Court for fully half an hour, after whil
the counsel for the prosecution stated that
he would submit the information against
Mr. Magic', for obtaihig money under
false pretence, to Hi Honor,
Honor, and de
clined to • offer any evidence in the
case. The Mayor, through the advice
of his counsel, Thos: M. Marshall, Esq.,
at once dissmissed the ass at the cost of
the prosecutrix and di charged the accus
ed. The information against Hate Fisher
having been previously , withdrawn, that
matter was ended. Thmases for surety of
the peace, were, howevar, at the request of
the prosecutrix, g a in iuntil three
o/clock to-day. ' - resume the Mayor
postponed the hearhkg"on account of the
weather," as we heard no other reason as
signed for a oontlnuanc , except the absence
of the much talked of and long looked for
Bovine, which is certainly a very poor
reason, as Bovine was to have been here
several days Since. '.! The former oases
were postponed twice on account of
his absence ,, and
fi e has not yet ar
rived. While we d not wish to nd
fault with or refiec upon the action
of the Mayor in thiswe must say that
the defendants in thi farce have been r
justly deprived of the r rights. Had there
been anything in the ease, it was an impo
sition upon the defendants to hold them i
custody for so long ae upon such sha
low cause or pretext. They were ready fo
and demanded a hea_i ng the day they were
arrested; yet notwithstanding this, their
hearing was postponed at the instance of
the prosecution thre times. -
The fact of the case against Miss Fisher
. and Mr. Magle havit; been abandoned by
the prosecution, iso dance that there was
nothing in the charge, and proves the cor
rectness of the statement made by her yes
terday. The prosecution was, to say the
least of it, a malicious one, and has done
the defendants great injury. Miss Fisher
is an actress ofconsiderable note, and since
her arrival in this city, some three weeks
since, has conducted !herself as becomes a
lady, which is more than we can' say for the
prosecutrix in the case. The conduct of
the two women at the Mayor's office bore a
marked contrast. That of Miss Fisher,
quiet, unostentatious', and ladylike, bear
ing with it a timidity which plainly indi
cated that she was not accustomed to po
lice courts, while oa.. the other hand the
prosecutrix evinced a boldness, presump
tion and knowledge (as she supposed) of
legal proceedings, indicating that she had
"been there" before.
Mr. Magie's oondu t since he came to this
city has been that Of a gentleman, and it
will require more 'than the flimsy charge
of Mrs. Bevins to injure him here.
The public sympathy is almost unani
mously with the defendants.
The Fair at the Cily Half.
We are gratified to hear that the benevo
lent ladies of Allegheny county are likely
to be successful in achieving the very mer
itorious object for which this Fair is held.
That object may be briefly Stated to be in
aid of the Home for Destitute Women, at
43 Chatham street, in this city. But this
House also includes a much-needed auxil
iary—a Home or Refuge for the Fallen.
The two institutions are but portions of
one plan, and to be under one general ad
ministration, but eminently separated in
details. While the first is located in the
City, the other, the Refuge, is to be estab
lished in the country far enough from town
to ensure quiet and freedom from all an
noyances, and yet not too remote for easy
communication and supervision. The la
dies now engaged in this noble work, rep
resenting a considerable part of the cities
and suburbs, desire to raise the sum
of $lO,OOO, and if successful, are assured
of farther aid from benevolent gentlemen
who have interested theniselves in the
work. The Fair yielded about two thou-
sand five hundred dollars- last week, and
this sum shoUld be dobbled during the
week to come. AI concert. by volunteer
musical talent froM the Soldiers' Home,
will be given at,the City . Hall on Tuesday
evening, and another, by the ladies, on
Wednesday evening, - each of which will be
welcomed, we hope, with a large and profit
able attendance. And during the -entire
week, the Fair with all its attractions, in
cluding a capital talde de' hole, will continuo
in progress. The treasury ought to show
five thousand dollars cash next Saturday,
in which case thel ladies know where to
look for the other five thousand dollars, and
will proceed at once with the auxiliary
Project. We urge npon all our city readers
who comprehend tbe sod ,necessity for such
institutions - as are proposed, to lend their
cheerful aid this week in making the Fair
a brilliant success.
The Young Peoples' Society of Liberty
Street M g E. Churcb held a public meeting
on Sunday evenini, instead of the usual
aervmes of preaching. This organization
performs much of the same kind of work
as iv: Christian Association, limiting the
work, however, to the congregation and
immediate neighborhood. Mr. W. W.
Jackman presided, and Mr. l Samuel W.
Hayncted as Secretary. After singing and
prayer by Rev. W. H. Kincaid, very inter
esting and well prepared written reports
were presented andread from the Commit
tees on "Government," "Invitation," "In
troduction," "Prayer Meetings," "Board
ing Houses," and "Sunday Schools."
Brief addresses were 'then delivered by
the pastor of the church, Rev. W. H.
Locke, and by Mr. Edward Heazelton,
Superintendent of the Sunday School.
This organization commenced -mainly
though the efforts of Rev. Mr. Locke, has
proven to be a valuable auilllary to the
usual social services of the church, and
Sunday school, and in,his pastoral work, as
well as a useful means of grace to the
youth or the congregation. The reports
show that, although organized but a few
months since, much substantial good has
been accomplished. The exercises were
rendered additionally interesting by the
excellent singing interspersed at diflerent
stages, under the lead of Mr. Joseph Shal

The - Hindoo ExhibitiOt given Monday
evenirur in the Sec o o- . U. P. Church, Sixth
avenue, by the Re - ". Andrew Gordon, was a
complete success. The house was crowded
to suffocation, by an audience evidently
deeply interested and greatly.. delighted.
Mr. Gordon was for ten years a missionary
in India, under the auspices of the United
Presbyterian Chi:Lich, and is therefore well
acquainted with the manners, customs, ha
bits,. modes of life and superstitions wor
ship of the millions of degraded Hindoos-
Through long service in the missionary
work, his health has become greatly im
paired, and, being unable to return to his
field of labor, he is now giving exhibitions
illustrative of Hinder) life. He is a worthy
Christian gentleman, and deserves all the
patronage he is now enjoying.
The exhibition last evening was intro
duced by a short but interesting and in
tructive lecture upon India, its inhabi
tants and - languages, of which, he said,
there are no less than eighteen spoken.
Then followed an exhibition of a number
of Hindoo, idols curiosities and works of
art. The ism:dela a machine used by na
tive Hiudiros fo raising water out of their
wells to irrigate their fields,
in full operation, oxen and all, and attrac
ted much attention, whilst it produced no
littleamusement. It is an ingenious piece
of meihanism, resembling somewhat our
""bucket pumps," but 'oyerated by machin
ery driven by oxen.
Mr. Gordon conversed with his daughter,
by whom he is assisted in his exhibitions.
in , the Hindoostanee language, which, of
course, was Greek to every one but them
selves, but it was evident they understood
it well. .
One very interesting feature of the exhi
rbition was the appearance of Mr. Gordon in
'in various mndoo costumes, peculiar to the
tieorge Washington Scott, a native Hiii
doo boy, and son of a native Missionary,
who was the first to endanger his life by
carrying the Bible into certain districts in
India at a certain time, appeared on the
platform and made a short speech. He
said they had no snow in India and the
first time he saw it here he thought it was
raining sugar. They have no ice in India,
and the first time he saw it he thought the
water had gone to sleep during the night
and got fiozen into ice.
We are sorry we could not wait to the
close of the exhibition as, we wouldlike to
have heard Mr. Gordon and his daughter
sing some Hindoo Melodies, according to
We understand that 'Mr. Gordon will
give similar exhibitions in other churches
in these cities and vicinity, and as they are
at once interesting, amusing. and instruc
tive, and the proceeds are to be devoted to
vary worthy objects, we hope he will re
ceive even a more liberal patronage than
he has yet enjoyed.
Now Is the Time.
The wailing of the wild wind, wringing
saddening music of aeolian softness and
beauty at the keyhole, playing miohievous
pranks with pedestrians, driving the pelt
ing, swift-falling snow into their faces, lift
ing hats daintily and -hurling them onward
in its current, sweeping the garments of
the ladies and hiding their t•lushes with
the rich color it has already imparted to
their cheeks, proclaims the reign of winter.
The prudent at once - prepare for the
season which has so earnestly set
in, and to the best of their means
and opportunities • will provide for
their bodily, comfort. We think we hear
an hundred voices cry out "now is the time
to purchase furs at Fleming's popular ern
pormn." And so it is. The sales of furs
at this house which all must know is at
No. 139 Wood street. during the present
season, has been absolutely enormous&M
mense, and yet, the reader must notafflig
ine that the good stock has all go e, and
that the refuse is being sold to late corners.
Not at all. Mr. Fleming daily receives
large and judiciously assorted invoices of
goods fresh from the very best factories of
the East,'and sells them rapidly, the peo
ple being wise enough to appreciate the
saving of from fifteen to twenty-tive per
cent. on their purchases by directing their
patronage thither. ''
It would be a matter of impossibility for
us to_ here enumerate the many qualities
of fur and styles of goods to be found at
Fleming's, the Mink, the Hudson Bay
Sables, Water Mink, Siberian Squirrel,
German Fitch, Black and Brown Sable,
Blue Coney, and so on to . a distant end.
The stock is pronounced by experienced
furriers as the finest ever held by any house
west of Philadelphia. The children's sets,
gentlemen's mufflers; glOyes, ke., will com
mend themselves as quite superior and
che - ap to anything in the market. It must
not be forgotten that the corps of salesmen

A House Builder.
Christian Golthold alleges that Fred.
Fritsch got hold of him theother day and
obtained twenty dollars from him by rep
resenting that he bad just finished build
ing a house in Allegheny for which he
would be paid as soon as the bill was made
out, but in the meantime he wanted a little
money to keep him going for a day or so.
After giving him the money Golthold
thought he would make inquiries in regard
