Mr. Walter Davis. a ..arder at the
Greenwood Hotel, attemp ed suicide by
cutting his throat with a razor yesterday

years past been employed by the Al

the ,capacity of night watchman the
depot, on Pike street, and was always a
sober, steady man, and attentive to his
business, Some two weeks since, he
was discharged and thrown out of em
ployment, in consequence of which he
became despondent land resorted to
strong drink. Fors ilveral daYs past it
appears he has shown symptoms of nia
nia potg and evinced a desire to destroy
his life, 'but no one thinight him in earn
est in the matter, and consequently gave
it no attention. Yesterday morning he
wanted whiskey, and the proprietor of
the hotel, Mr. Abraham Greenwood; re
fused to give him any, and remonstrated
with him for drinking so mach. Davis
made no reply, but left the house, and,it
appears,sttec,eeded in getting liquor some
where else. He came back to . the lintel
shortly be:ore eight o'clock, intoxicated.
He went to his room, and shortly after
Mr. Greenwood, having some business
with him, went to his room, and found
him sitting on the bed with a razor in his
hand, and the blood flowing from his
neck. He took the razor from him, and
calling assistance, succeeded in stopping
the flow of blood. Davis requested,him
to give him the razor again to allow him

The final arrangements in the reorgan
ization of the Allegheny police force
were made last evening by Mayor Drum,
in conjunction with the Police CoMmittee
of the City Councils, and the new system
adoptod will go into effect on Monday:
next. There are at present thirty-nine
policemen on the force, exclusive of the
ChieL Four of these, via. Alf. Gobby,
Martin Shaffer, William Green and Jack
son Scott, have been - detailed 'as the
office force. Two of the office force will
be on duty at the office during the day,
the other two doing such special outside
work as may be assigned them, and the
men alternating each weekin the office.
, - Of the remaining members of. the force,
ten have been selected_as the day force,
of which officer John; Meltoberts Is Lieu
tenant. These 'men 'go on' Atilt at one
o'clock in the afternoon and remain un
til midnight. Each of them will have a
regular beat, and be paid twenty-live
cents per day more than those of the-of
fice force. Tweety-three men have been
detailed as it night watch, with Samuel
Crow as Captain.„ The night Watch will
goon duty at nin o'clock in the- even
ing and remain until six o'clock next
morning. They Iso will be-paid twen
ty-five cents extr The remaining offi
cer. Wm. Nixon, has - .been detailed us

scribed duties attention to the enforce

obstructions, nuisances, dec.
The whole force is under the supervis

den, one of the ablest and most experi
enced officers in the police service. -
It was originally intended to divide
the force into three equal sections or re
liefs, but after due consideration the
system as given above was adopted. It
is thought it will answer the purpose
and be more effective, than the plan of

Determined Ellbn to Escape
We mentioned y*sterday that officer
Belt, of Alderman Taylor's police, had
arrested C. 0. Hess upon a dispatch re
ceived from the authorities at Latrobe
stating that the inan was wanted there.
The chap, it seems, when arrested went
along quietly enough as long as officer
Bell,.stayed by bim, but when that officer
left him on the cars at East Liberty, in
charge,of a Constable from Latrobe, he
beztur to be obstreperous. After the train
had left the East Liberty station and had
proceeded a short distance, he left his
seat and, while the train was in full mo
tion, made a desperate leap and alighted
'on the ground beside the, track
unhurt. Not to be outwitted In thik
manner, the • Constable leaped after
him, and commenced a pursuit, the
prisoner making good use of his legs,
ran in the direction of BraddOck's Fields,
closely followed ,by the constable, who
with the aid of a resident of tho p lace,
succeeded in rearresting him there. He
was brouget • back to the city, and the
servnea of officer Bell, agahr procured to
aid in getting him to his destina
tion./ At last accounts he was securely
locked up in the Greensburg jail, there
being no institution of that kind in La
trobe. The pr sorer is charged with ob
taining money Item several parties in
Latrebe by false pretence by represent
ing that he was the owner of A large lot
of hay in the vicinity, and would return
the money as scion as he could make a
sale, which, it is alleged, Is altogether
amimaginary case. •
In Favor.—We 'observe by the Mercer.,
Di.spltch that the Bethel Coal Company
of Middlesex have In use one of the
beautiful and unique locomotives manu
factured by Messrs. Smith tit Porter, ma
,Chhilsts and engineers of this city. This.
enterprising firm, whose extensive works
are located in South Pittsburgh, and
office at the corner of Water street and
Cherry alley, make a specialty of little
engines or locomotives, which are perfect
specimens of mechanical skill and per
fectiont and are being very generally
adopted throughout the country in
mines, pits and other places, where their
I ' great convenience is appreciated.
Gray's Printing luk.—We have tried
most of the first.olastrprinting inks man
ufactured in this country, and know
whereof we speak in reootninending that
manufactured at Gray's Ferry Printing
Ink Works, •Rhiladelphia, as superior to
any in use. It is easily worked in all
sorts of weather, is clear, clean and
pretty, and in many ways far ahead of
inks sold'at much higher prices. We
are seconded 111 this recommendation by
our pressman, in the correctness of whose
judgment in matters pertaining to the
press-room we have unlimited confi

Narrow Escape_: From. Death.
David Burke, a resident of-the Second
ward, Allegheny ,_narrowly escaped a
horrible death yesterday afternoon about
five o'clock, and was, onlyssaved,,by the
prompt exertions of officer * Shaffer, of
the Allegteny poiice foree. He got
aboard of a freight tralat the outer depot
of the Fort Wayne • R lroad, intending
, •
to - ride to* the Fder ` street station.
As the train neared that 'station, he
attempted to get Each - ` to the rear from
the front car by walking over the tops of,
those intervening, but as he was slightly ,
intoxicated this proved to be a rather
difficult undertaking, and the train
passed over Federal street before he had
glithalf way back. Officer Shaffer, who
ppened to be coming by Federal street,
just then noticed Burke's movement, and
fearing, that some accident would occur,
followed, the' train as fast' as he could.
, When it had reached the curve in the
'track,: near 'Lsicock street, Burke had
succeeded in getting on the last car, but
in attempting to climb down the ladder,
at the side, he missed his hold and fell
'to the ground, rolling over to the other
track. Another train was coining from
au opposite direction along this track.
and officer Shaffer half but just, suf
ficient time to get to the Waco
and jerk the man to one side when this
train went speeding by. In the fall
Burke bad sprained his left ankle badly,-
and could not Stand upright without as
sistance. He was' taken officer to

ure to heara,Miss Logan at the desk, but
we know her as a sprightly writer, a .
keen observer, and a woman of. elegant
finish and manners. We depend much
on our exchanges in forming judgment
of the lady in her capacity as a lecturer,
and unless the press of the country have
conspired to give her eminent standing,
she better deserves a larger audience
than any of the lecturers who have Ap
peared thus far this season. There will
be no reserved seats nor extra charge on
season tickets. In speaking of her lec
ture on "Paris. the City of Luxury," the
Philadelphia Bullethz said
Her cultivated elocution and manner,
her sense of the iltnesses of speech and
action, and-her trained knowledge of the
art of entertainment, give her wonderful
advantage over thvordinary race of lec
turers. Her lecture sparkles with wit
and humor, and abounds with ludicrous
pictures, but never falls for an instant
from the high level of purity—moral. in
tellectual and artistic purity. It differs
from ordinary lectures in that it will
bear liaring, again. •and again—just as
some of Thaelteray's and Dickens' novels
will bear reading again and again—with
au additional relish.
Should be .Stopped
There is a practice prevalent among
conductors on our street railways of
stopping their cars on street-crossings,
while passengers get on or off, thereby
Obstructing the crossings and occasion
ing pedestrians no little inconvenience.
It often happens, especially on. some of
the most frequently traveled thorough
fares, that a dozen persons are thus made
to yield to the accommodation of one, or
turnout in the mud and make a circuit
of the car. This is a bad practice, and
should be done away with. We noticed
that some attention has been called to
the matter in gheny, the chief of
police having his Alle officers to see that the
nuisance is abated, and the ordinance in
relation to street obstructions enforced
in this case as well as in any other. This
is a good idea and wo would; like to see
it carried out in our own city.

A New Project
The subject of a side-walk bridge
acrossthe mud lake on the side-walk,
west side of Federal street, Allegheny,
at thecgateway of the Railroad Company,
is much talked of by those who pass that
way in wet- weather. This, however, is
opposed by the loafers who congregate
in the neighborhood to laugh at the
struggles and frequent discomfiture of
ladies and children who attempt the
paisage'tbttough. If the joint or sepa
rate effettskar the,Railroad. Company and
Street Commissioner shall fall for a year
or two more to abate this grievous nui
sance, a bridge or ferryboat will have to
be supplied. If tolls are permitted, the
4 stock will be quickly taken.
Wo learn that the matter we 'referred
to yesterday under tho head of "An In
vestigation Demanded,"relating to the
escarie of W. J. Robinsonn after shooting
Manager Smythe; at the American
Theatre, has been fully investigated,
and it affords .us pleasure to state that
officers Ruch, Long and Rivers were
fully exonerated from any blame, or
censure in the matter. We did not
learn the particulars of the case; but as
the Mayor investigated 'the matter him
self we are satisfied. 'The result is as
we anticipated, as we know the officers
named to be efficient and reliable.

will be one of remarkable attraction.
The entire strength of the establishment
will appear in new and varied novelties.
