Death of B. B. Wlillatason.—The well
known colored barber of Federal street,
Allegheny, died on Sunday and will be
buried this day, at 1 o'clock p. nt. , from
No. 190 Federal street. Among our col
ored citizens, Mr. Williamson was a rep
resentative man. By many years of in
dustry and economy he accumulated a
handsome competency, and being Justly
esteemed by the wMte as well as the
colored community, was influential in
advancing the interests of his race, to
which his death will be felt as a grievous
loss. Following so quickly that of the
late venerabld Parker Sorrel, a vacancy
is made among the more deserving and
prominent colored citizens, which it will
- be hard to fill.

cur," which wilfully and 'maliciously
did bite and lacerate the leg of defend..
ants wife. Gilson was arrested, and on
condition that he• would dispose of the
ferocious brute - and paying the costs,
was discharged. _ ' If "Heiser" wants to
buy a dog, he can get this one cheap,
as he will dispose of tum upon,the most
reasonable terms. . 1 •
The Sunday Liquor Lair.
. Sunday night, the Allegheny Pollee
picked up:a man in an intoxicated condi
tion on Federal street. He was locked
up until yesterday morning, when,
upon being questioned, he said 'he had
purchased the liquor on Sunday, at the sa
loon of James Heriderson,under the Grant
House, Federal street. Henderson was
subsequently arrested, acknowledged to
the vloalatitn of the law, in selling the
liquor, and paid the penalty attached,
Ifty dollars, when he was relaxed. It is
proper to say, for the proprietors of
the Grant House, that he' has no connec
nection with the saloon,further than'
renting the premises to enderson.
One of the oldest established and best

Science, located over the Allegheny Say

Here are taught, by competent and ex

regulated that the pupil, while securing

election being by ballot. While' the
tickets Nefire being prepared Miss H.
Mulhattan, a teacher in the Sixth ward
schools, Allegheny, .read in excellent
style an essay entitled "Earth Life," in

the moral and, next the intellectual ca.
pacities of the scholars, was the greatest
wprk of the teacher. The argument was
enforced by several praetleal and beauti
ful illustrations, which developed a facil
ity and strength of composition of no

the December sessions, A. D. 1888, a cer
tain Louis Lane was tried on au indict
ment for the crime of tnurder, and o
the eighth day of January, 1869, was
found guilty of murder irr the - first de
gree, and was, therefor!), on she 20th of

that you, Louis Lane, the prisoner at the
bar, be taken hence, to the jail - of Alle

The doomed man listened calmly and
attentively to the reading of the docu
ment, which fixed to a certainty the end
of his earthly existence. When the
Sheriff had concluded reading the docu
ment he took the prisoner by , tpe hand
and exhorted him to resign all earthly
hope and spend the few days the law had
allotted to him in preparing to meet his
God, betore whose awful presence he was
so soon to be summoned. He assured
him that everything possible should be
done for his comfort during his short stay
on earth. Mr. McCarthy, one of his
counsel, also shook hands with the pris
oner, and the party withdrew, leaving
him alone to contemplate in solitude the
fearful doom which awaits him.
Coliectlng a Board Bill.
Isaac and Hugh ?rfoCord, proprietors
of a tavern on Fifth Avenue, in the Sixth
waft!, attempted to collect a board bill a
few days since in a manner not altogether
satisfactory to the delinquent boarder,
and the result was a prosecution for as
sault and ) battery. Mr. James Broad
and his wife, it appears, had been board
ing at hicCord's for some time, and
owed the sum of twenty dollars for
boarding. Saturday evening last, not
having the necessary amount of money
to liquidate the debt, be did as any hon.
est man would, offered to pay ten dol-
lars, which was all the money he could
spare at that time, andpromised to pay
the remainder at an early day. Mr. Mc-
Cord, however, refused, to take the
'money tendered, whereupon Mr. Broad
resolved to leave the establishment and
procure boarding at another house.
Shortly after he had gone to his room,
- one of the McCord's came up, stairs, and
told him he would take that money now,'
but Mr. B. declined to oy it, whereupon

were called tip, and the three proceeded

The Concert Last Night.
The grand Old Folks Concert last night
at the Acadeniy of Music, under the
'auspices of Prof. William A. Lawton,-at
tracted a large and brilliant audience,
and the entertainment was of such high
order that we feel safe ,in anticipating
much larger attendance tonight, on its
repetition with an entire change of
programme. The entertainment last
evening opened with a pretty and ex
pressive tableau representing the trou
bles of, a '76 pinging school. . The partici
pants of the concert were each arrayed
in gorgeous costume peculiar to ye olden
time, and presented a splendid and
pleasing appearance. The Hallelujah
chores -- try • some thirty of as line
voices as ever breathed harmonious
sounds together opened the concert and ,
was miptortirhslY _applauded. A quar
tette, amusing, and yet effective, fol
lowed , by Messrs. -- Lawton,- Rinehart,
Cuthbert and Robinson, and by its clever
rendition and drollery excited the audi
ence into a fervor, and nut, all in the
humor of enjoyment., A solo from
Miss Hattie Jones an artiste far
superior, to the Major ity of opera prima
donnas who come this way, was ren
dered in a marvellously beautiful and
correct manner, and secured for the lady
a moat •hearty encore, to which she grace
fully complied and sang a more simple
ditty, which fully proclaimed her genius
and versatility. A chorus, "Invitation,"
by Kimball, was splendidly rendered,and
was followed by a solo. "Adelaide," by
Prof. Lawton, accompanied by Mr. Mel
lor on the piano and a fall orchestra,
is as tine a piece of united vocalism as
we have ever listened to, and elicited
the warmest applause. A 'quartette fol.:
lowed, the popular "Dream On," in which .
Misses Wallace and Patterson. — and
Messrs:Sutton and Williams participated.
It was superbly rendered. The "Tramp
Chorus," by thirty voices, was a fine
contribution, and concluded the fleet part
of the programme. After a brief-later
lade part sfeoud opened with a poetic
tableau, representing the exalted
"mission of the Grand Arm y.of - the
Republic, which was closely followed by
the inspiring chorus from. Haydn'a
"Creation," and "The Heavens are Tell
ing." This was followed by Plotoves
famous "Porter Song," by Mr. C. C.
Rinehart, The natural grace, full
- yoice, and vivacity of this interpretation
was such as to merit and receive a hearty
encore to which the talented" gentleman
responded singing the conc:tt ling verse
of the song, which never could grow te
dious to an appreciative atulience. "The
song of the old fOlks" followed and was
enthusiastically received. A duet "the
Fisherman" , by ,Miss Hattie .jcines
and Mr. Dihni, was as pretty a piece
of vocalism as we have ever heard and
was so rapturously encored, as to draw
from the same artists a duet, "Meet me
by Moonlight Alone." Miss Anna
Houston, deservedly a popular favorite,
and one who occupies no second place
among our talented home amateurs.
sang with peculiar effect and grace
"Katie's Letter," and in answer to an en
thusiastic encore rendered "Viva the
Laugh" with decided power and perfec
tion, pleasing the audience beyond meas
ure. She was followed by Miss Good, an
alto singer of brilliancy. who takes lead
in her branch of vocalization,assisted by a
full chorus in the grand and soul inspir
ing gem of "Don Noble" from Mozart's
twelfth masa. W shave often attended the
Cathedral to hear this gem by the popu
lar choir of that - church, but never before
did It break upon our ears in - such fell
force, power and brilliancy as upon last
evening, when rendered by the talented
members of' the "Old Folks." ; 'Alto-,

Miss Judith Russel, of New Bedford,
writes : I haye been afflicted with se
vre prostrating cramps in my limbs,
cold feet .and liauds; and a general disor
dered system. While visiting some
friends in New York, who were using
PLAIITATICtS BITTERS, they prevailed
upon me to try them. I commenced with
a small wine-glass full after each meal.
Feeling better by degrees, in a few days
I was astonished to find the coldness and
cramps had entirely left me, and I could
sleep the night through, which I had not
done for years. I feel like another being.
My appetite and strength have also great
ty improved by the rise of the PLANTA.
