Mollie Oliver has just been released from
jail, where she had been serving a term for
participating in the "Church alley" row,
some time ago, the particulars of which
our readeis will recollect:. She seems to
;be iu some considerable trouble on account
of the ingratitude and baseness of several
of her former friends, which became mani
fest during her imprisonment. She called
at Alderman , MOMaster's office yesterday
and gave vent to her feelings in the follow
informations: First, one against David
Jones for assault and battery, the offence
consisting in striking her across the back
with an iron bar during
,the row afore
mentioned, causing "her to be almost
unable to move for two weeks. She
thinks this was most barbaroas treat
ment. Secondly, she ,alleges that her
Mewl Kate itaney broke open her trunk,
which was at her house, during her absence
in prison, and appropiated twelve dollars
.worth of clothing to her own use, , a
clear case of larceny as bailee. The . third
information charges her cotopaniedin jail,
Alice Doran, also with lemony as 'bailee.
.In this it is alleged that Alice obtained
from Mollie a waterproof suit, of female
Wearing apparel to make her appearatute in
alter being released, and which she prom
ised to return promptly, but which Per
haps, on the grounds that a rash promise is
better broken than kept, she now indig
nantly refuses to return at all. The fourth
'and' last, information is made against her
most particular and favorite , friend,
David Audi:L.lF, for false preteaCe.
David, according to the aliegations, came
to her in the county jail and asked permis
sion to sell a certain stove which she
oirued, stating that he would with the pro
ceeds secure her release from impristin
ment. = She of course granted the requelst,
and waited after the departure' of David in
patient expectation of being released. ;She
waited in vain, however: David sold the
stove Tor nine dollars, but forgot the 're
mainder,of the agreement and made use of
the pioceeds in an entiAdy. dillbrent Ivayt
His friendship in the case seemed to tarot
that peculiar kind,' which has been de
"A ehnee that follows wealth or ramp,.
And leaves the wretch to weep , ."
At any rate, Mollie says she never had any
of the money, and she thinks it was clearly
obtained by false and fraudulent represen.
tattons. After hearing the statement of her
grievances in 'full, the sympathizing offi
cial did all in his power to calm her ru9llo
feelings by issuing warrants for.the arrest

NEW '`OpEEA tionSE.—Leffingwell, the
greatest caricaturist the age has produced,
appeared last night for the second time at
the Opera House, and was greeted by a
vefflarge and appreciative audience. - To
say that Istqa'elever, does not half express
the genius and peculiar talent of the actor;
to Say that Ire'ds truly magnlncent, ap
proaches the truth much closer; and yet to
,ta ' Man so excruciatingly funny
seems like i
,the height of ridicultMsness. Of
graceful tbruiii mabstve and yet genteel Pro-
portions, Classical features, which even
Booth might envy, a voice singularly capa
of imitations, and wonderful powers of
facial expression and con tortion, Lein ugwell
is destined rank pre-eminent in the dm- ,
inatie line he has adopted. Ile appeared as
the overgrOwn. simpering, blushieg, gush
ing loving- Clorinda, in the laugh provoking
burlesque Of Cinderella ' and in his hn person
ation of that creature of passion ,and. beau
ty, - fashitm and style, he , presend just
such a piece of feminine flesh in :ilk as
many recoeuizatl familiar--quite to famil
iar. Mrs. Lefliugwell, .who :loam panies
her husband,- played Dandini With much
i effect, while our charming ho ne fa
vorite, Mrs. Bates, sustained Prime Pop
petti in, a splendid Manner. ' As Baron llilderdash, Mr. Head ,made a .itrike,
,Wfailfi Mr. Want displayed unusual :ulnati
tian and decidedly-good acting in B ttoni.
'Villa Katie O'Neill and Miss Liz.zie ardy
were well caSt, and contributed 'no 1 the to
the extraiagint burlesque. In th after
piece, "Too Much for ,Good Nature ":. Ler
tingwell developed his eccentric a yle of
acting in Its. fullest .degree, and i a was
most admirably eupportedbY the fir t•elass
stock company which now grimes the boards
Of the Opera House. In these two ista the
caricaturistis immense, and - not to : (whim
is equivalent to: the refusal to enji'y gen-'
nine mirth and'drollerY. The sa • e pro-'gramme Will. be 'presented to-nig t, and
those of our readers who believe 1 tighter
is not genteel had better fail to sect a seats'
at the box office, -for if they atten ( they-
will certainly make a wide step . out of the
the range!,of . what they imagine constitutes
THEATRE.-The wonderful success of the
Gregory combination troune at the old The
atre is p o t only an .evidence of the genuine
merit of 'their entertainments, but is proof
positive that Pittsburghers appreciate tal
ent and liberally patronize all amusements
of a meritorious character. The Gregorys
have played to full houses for Over two
weeks, and they are beComing 'more and
more popular every day. An entice change
of programme is announced for tonight.
MrsEuM.—The attractions at Burnell's
Musemmi on Fifth avenue, have a tendency

osities they find there. ' ._ •

sanguine, expectations of the managers.

What a wonderful •thing is fashion. A

created into shape, .to suit the imagination,

only necessary' to refer our readers to the

Mrs. Elizabeth Hewitt and family and:
Mrs. Ann Payne occupy .. in conjunction a
tenement house in Kilday's court, off High
street. Yesterday morning Mrs, Payne
made informations before Alderman Mc-
Masters against Mrs. Hewitt and her two
daughters, Emma and Mary Hewitt, eliarg- '
jug them with keeping a disorderly house.
The prosecutrix alleges that :the Hewitt
family ent6rtain a great many visitors, the
great majority of whom are males posses
sing reputations not very enviable. :She
further alleges that a few evenings since
she heard considerable rnoise, coming
from -the rooms- on the second ilnor
occupied by the Hewitt's. Upon ascend.
ing to the apartments to discover the cause
of the seeming disturbance, she discovered
a certain Barney O'Neil there, and was in
formed that the supposed row was uniy a
friendly discussion between the inmates.
Her intrusion, ::o ever, aroused the ire of
O'Neil who according to her statements,
knocked her down and beat her severely,
winding up with.a thieat to take her life
sometime in the near future, for the offence.
In addition therefore to other infdrmatiohs,'
she made information against O'Neil for
assault and battery and surety of the Peace;
She states that the punishment she received
has caused her to feel its effeCts In a pain

Xesterday morning a young woman was
brought before Mayor Drum for vagrancy.
The police had arrested her wandering
around the streets the 'previous evening.
She stated that she had been brought to
this country about two years since by
her , uncle, a Frederick Miller, who
formerly Carried on business in phi
mond alley, and for whom she kept
house for nine months. Her relative then
got married and moved down the river
somewhere, leaving her at a place in the
city as servant girl. She has been living
at different places since that tinie, the last
one being with the family of Mr. E. Bech
tcld,liquor dealer in Pittsburgh: A few days
;ago, she stated, she left. Mr. Bechtold for
no apparent reason, end had been wander;
ing around until her arrest. She gave her
first name as Minnie, but refused to give
her last name. The Mayor, after hearing
her Story, discharged her, but she was
picked up a few hours afterward lying on
I the floor of the Pleasant Valley Passenger
I Company's waiting car, in front of the
City Hall. She was again' taken up
in the tombs,
where she still remains.
I At times she talked quite wildly and
seemed to be laboring under attacks of
The Mayor is at a loss to make a disposi
tion of her case, but will probably commit
her to jail for a few-days, until she is com
pletely restored to her senses.
