at this date. The meeting this afternoon

The Nicoisou in Allegheny.—There is

gheny, of having the Nicolson pavement
laid in • front of their- properties. The
street will be paved Meat spring and the
water and gas .eittended along the thor

little grading, and it is thought that the

praise with which their manufactures

accompanying this action with a threat
to'tear down the water spouts connected
with a tannery [owned by Day. The

battery, alleging that Praeger created
the row by first striking him with a bir
of iron. Both parties were required to
give bail for a hearing this evening at
seven o'clock.
Choice Segars.
Since the law-makers for the National
Government have decided it essential,
in order to raise sufficient revenue, to
impose a tax on tobacco, which is very
properly considered a "luxury," it has
been with the greatest difficulty that
those accustomed to indulge in the luxu
ry of smoking could find an article of
segars, at any price, which would com
pare in quality of flavor with what they
Ibrmerly used. That difficulty has been
obviated, and smokers can now, by call
ing at No. 45 Hand street, John Me
gratv's, obtain the very best article of
segars at the most reasonable prices: - He
alsokeeps a full stock of the best brands
efehewing tobacco, as well as a large as
sortment of pipes, segar tubes, Ate.
Caught at last.
Some time since an old man was,
knocked down and robbed of about
eleven dollars, tin a station house of the
Western Pennsylvania Railroad located

arrested. William twins Flatty Boyle, a
well known character, on suspicion of
being the guiltpparty. At the hearing
before Mayor Dram the accused was
positively Identified by the man who had
been the victim of the robbery. Several
other 'circumstances also corroborated
this testimony and "Flatty" accordingly
wds tommitted, in default of bail, for

With of the charges hence the suit.
Edward Simi:lan, occu pant of the upper

states that Susan appealed to him for the
Man of a cooking stove, in order that she

For some time past retail dealers in
liquors, especially proprietoin -of small
saloons, in and around the ti. , o cities,
have been much annoyed and hunted
down by parties claiming to be in the
interests of justice 'and law, while their
real object, if "actions speak ldnder than
words," is undoubtedly . blackmailing.
The particular point at which these pseu
do-law preservers aim is the abolishment
of the liquor traffic on Sunday. For this
purpose, a strict watch Is kept on the sa
loons, and every violator of the law is
pounced upon immediately; and com
pelled sometimes, and only sometimes, to
appear before a magistrate and pay the
penalty. The general rule, however, is
to levy a tads upon the unfortunate indi
vidual, which finds its way into the
pocket of the supposed watchful guardi
an of the law, who thereat er, as long as
the specie d tax fs promptly paid, as
sumes one of the /ma thictd, character

of the Sunday liquor late. The ,proso

tion in order to sustain his cane •which

John Myer, , a resident of Birmingham,
was robbed of hie watch, pocket-book
containing ten dollars, and several arti
thes'of clothing in an alley in the rear of
Schniidt's Saloon, Smithfield street, near
Fifth avenue, on Thursday evening about
eight o'clock. He had been in the sa
loon a short time befbre, and left coneid

'He remembers going into the alley, but
nothing further of hie operations. He

It:1g kis watch and money, stripped him
of his coat, pants and boots, which they
also carried off; leavinz him indebted to
the kindness of Mr. Schmidt for the
loan or sufficient 'Wearing apparel to

depredators. -
Yesterday morning about ten o'clock,
a man whose name could not be asoer

track of the Pennsylvania Railroad near

Baltimore express train, coming west.

Seecind Street.
Some time ago we called the attention
of the street authorities to the condition
of Second street, stating that unless cer
repairs or alterations were made it
would become necessary to repave the
entire street from the Birmingham
bridge to l na summit. As an evidence
of the correctness of our conclusions at
. 1
that time, we refer to the present condi
tion of the street, which, between the
points named, is so badly torn up as to
necessitate the repaving of the street en
tire to put it in proper condition.
It is asserted by a "citizen" that the
work was poorly done in the begginning;
that the large cobble stones from thegnt
ters on Fifth avenue and Wood street,
4 7
taken up to be replac dby Nicolson pave
ment, were used n p ving Second
street, and that the and I which they
' were imbedded was wet. Others con
tend, on the contrary, that the work was
properly done arid the cause of the diffi
culty is the spouty nature of the ground,
in consequence of which the road is con
tinually damp. With these matters,
however, we have nothing to do now.
The fact that the street was paved and
taken off the contractor's hands, by the
proper officers, is sufficient evidence that
the work was properly done, but it was
no evidence of its durability. There is . a
very large amount of travel upon the
street, and of a very heavy characte4
which will In some measure account for
its bad condition, and is at the same time
a good reason why it should be put in
proper repair. It would be an excellent
place to test the qualities of the Nicolson.

A Certain Sign
It is a good index of the prosperity of
any business house that may be com
pelled, for want of proper accommoda
tion for the transaction of the trade
directed thereto, to abandon old es
tablished quarters for' new ones more
expensive and more commodious. It is
a sign that the •house has a solid basis,
and on 'merit alone rushes ahead of
slower neighbors. As an evidence of
this fact it is but necessary here to cite
the rapid growth into popularity — and de
mand of the Weed Sowing Machine,
which was only a few years ago intro
duced into this market for public favor.
Its high merits were soon discovered by
the discriminating public, and from
year to year the sales became larger and
larger, till the enterprising agents,
Messrs. Long dr. Harvison, were corn
pelled to seek more extensive quarters
for their business. The stand on Grant
street, so long identified with the
machine, had to be abandoned,
and to-day the firm is located
in ono of the largest and handsomest
stores of the city, No. 116 Market street.
The building has been remodeled I
throughout, and in point of elegance and
completeness Is unsurpassed. The front,
which is supplied with mammoth plate
glasti panes reaching from the ceiling of
the first floor to the ground, faces St.
Clair street, commanding a fine view
across the bridge and into, the heart of
Allegheny City, and can be seen from
every point of approach, being decidedly
elegant and conspicuous. . The main
salesroom is richly furnished and car
peted, and contains a line assortment of
the various styles of the famous Weed
machines. The second floor is also oc
cupied as a salesroom and for exhibition
and storage. In the mammoth windows
are placed specimens of the • sewing of
t the “Weed,' which arrest the attention
,and challenge the heartiest admiration
la all who pass that way, especially
the ladies, who are most interested. We
are glad to observe this fresh evidence of
the continued popularity of the Weed
Sewing Machine, and trust it may ever
enjoy the proud position to which en:
