Last evening the Market Committee of
City Councils held a meeting at City

present, Mr. James M. McEwen, Chair

and laid on the table from a number of
retail dealers occupying stalls iu the Dia

Constables, were authorized to act as

End of the Trinity Church Controversy.
EDITORS GAZETTE: The following
°communication from Mr. Craig explains
itself. I ask its publication, as justify
ing the confidence I have always felt
that Mr. Craig, knowing that the Trinity
Church had purchased from a relative of
his, the situ of the old "Round Church,"
about A. D. 1805, and for many years oc
cupied it as their place of worship, felt
sure that if the lots ,on Sixth street
had belonged to the parish, such a
purehase would, nAt have been made, and
hence concluded• that the Sixth street
property did not belong to them. It is
much to Mr. Craig's credit that when
rightly informed as to the title, he so
fully and promptly makes due acknowl
, edgment of hiserror.
KING—j. have received the copy of
the deed to Jolla Gibson et al. I hasten
to acknowledge that I have made a great
blunder, and to say that I have written
to Harrisburg to withdraw my remon
strance. lam sure, sir, that you will do
me the justice of believing that I was
not actuated by any unworthy or *dishon
orable motive in the matter. Had all the
members of the Trinity Church treated
me with the same consideration that you
have done, the matter would not have
obtained the notoriety it has. I have no
excuse to offer, except that I was taken
by surprise by the announcement that a
bill was before the Senate, &a., and I had
only time to make a hasty and imperfect
examination., You will also see that the
deed bears the date of more than ayear
after the Pittsburgh Gazurrn announced
that the Penns had made another- dispo
sition of the ground.
If I felt that I bad any right, I would
still plead with you to spare the graves
of the old soldiers. With great respect,
I remain yours, &a., Crum.

Prof. Lawton and the "Grand Army of

this difficulty, for from thirty to forty of
our best singers have been for some
weeks rehearsing such productions as
Hayden's "Hallelujah Chorus," Han

number of "Old Folk's" songs and

Under Prof. Lawton's skillful leader
ship a high degree of profialency has been
attained, and Itis really an evening's en

voices swelling in unison through the
difficult measures of the "Hallelujah"

til the latter part of March, as all inter

success. In the meantime the singers
have devoted themselves to study and

Mayor Brush it appears is determined
to enforce the ordinance relative to the

have already been arrested and required
to pay the penalty prescribed for the of
fense, and yesterday informations were
made by officer Daniel McMullen against
nineteen others for the same offense.
The custom of blockading the sidewalks
has been enjoyed so long. that many
persons presume it an established right,
and consequently It will require a con
siderable effort on the part of the author
ities to abolish it; but a persOverance in
the course already .begun will doubtless
have the desired effect.

he came out again he detected the as

money drawer revealed a deficiency of
30 cents, which was afterward found up
