Mysterious •Case—A Body Pound

Saturday afternoona telegraphic die. '
patch was received by
of Clawson,
stating that the body of an unknown
girl had been found in a snow drift, net
, pro-
Tarentum, and requesting him to pro
ceed thither and hold an inquest. Upon
the receipt of the message, the
Coroner telegraphed to Justice W.
B. Evans - of Tarentum, instructing
hits to conduct the inquest. The body.
It seems, was found in afield near Bite's
• station. , about two miles - this side of Ta
rentum. and when first discovered the
supposition was4that the girl had been
frozen to death, but a subsequent
ination created a. strong suspicion
of foul play.. The body was found
lying face downward, _and appeared
as though it had been there
for several days, as it had slightly de
composed. It looked- to be the body of
a girl about sixteen yeersof age. Across
one temple there was a se er e cut
bruise, which had apparently been made
by a blow from some blunt instrument.
A number of persons in the vicinity vis
ited and examined the remains, none of
whom, however, could identify them.
A gentleman called at *We Mayor's
state during Saturda,y afternoon and
stated that a young girl had left her ' horne
' in Tarentum teu days ago to visit a
friend, but had never reached her desti
nation and had not been. heard of since.
- s' It is supposed that this fact may unravel
the case which at present is enveloped
in mystery, and awaits the investigation
of a corouer'sjary..

Will vacate the office and • Mayor Brush
will take possession, and coesequent
upon this change there will be many
others. Old faces, with which we have
beeoine familiar, and for the possesses or
which we entertain the, kindest feelings
for the many courtesies received at their
will be replaced new ones,
whichin time will be as by familiar hand
their possessors as agreeable we hope as
their predecessors. Messrs. M'Cready and
Moon are the only men on the old force
in the front office whotave been retain
ed. Tney are both excellent officers,
faithful and fearless in the performance
or their duties, and courteous to all in
their business transactions. Chief of
Police Butler, although new in that posi
tion, is by no means a stranger, having
officiated as Alderman in
be this city for
' 1 several years, a position filled with
credit to himself and to the general
faction of his constituents, is an old
to ac
quaintande, and we know hirn be
genial, courteous and gentlemanly in all
his business transactions. While re
netting tbe loss of the old friends, we
hope to; find in their successors men
worehy to fill their positions. We can
ask no more.

for Now York via Philadelphia, and
further that they had a large trunk
which it T h ep resnmed =tamed the
money. e chief, accon3panied by of
ficer fierron, immediately repaired to
the depot-and on investigation found that
the trunk spoken of had passed
through on the train which had just
gone out, but that there were no such
persons as those described to the
dispatch on the train. The next train
was about ready to start and there was
no time to look through it. A descrip
tion of the parties was given to the
duco and he was directed to have the
arrested if found on the train.
The Conductor telegraphed from Erin
ton Station that the parties described in
the telegrammere aboard his train, and
he was telegraphed to have them arrested
at Altoona and held until an officer
could arrive for them. 13Isbing was
telegraphed to and replied that be would
sake the first train east with the neCes
sary-Papers for thehrrest of the, parties,
and requested that they be held until
his arrival. The trunk. it appears, went
andrrisburg, where it was stopped
returned to Altoona. The parties
arrested were searched and - frad_in their
possession but one hundred and eighty
dollars. Officer lashing will probably
arrive here this morning. .

superior advantages to new beginners as

Works of Art.
In Boyd & Murray's window, on Wood
street, there is now on' exhibition the
most superb specimen of graphite draw
ing we have ever seen, and we believe
that, without exaggeration, it is the
finest ever produced. Mr. Trevor Mc-
Clurg is, we believe, unrivaled in this de
partment of art. No New York
him i artist
that we know of can approach n'
style or finish, few in ability. Mr. hfc
Clurg has discovered several valuable
novelties in quality of graphite used and
!n the manner of using it, which, added
to his genius as an artist, place him, we
think, in the position we claim for him.
The specimen •in the window of the
Messrs. Boyd & Murray is a life-size por
trait of Mr. Ill'Clurg's eminent friend
and fellow-artist, the tate Emanuel
Leatze. In Mr. Gillesple'a win'dows we
notice two large portraits l, the on e
of John Harper, Esq., by Law
man. and the other of - - Jacob Painter,
Esq.,painted by Hicks, of New York
Looking at - the two side by side,
honestly think that of oar home artist is
the finest, although the reputation of his
'Tow York rival is far: greater.
