SATURDAY, April 3.—John Coyle, Est
counsel for Bernard Duffy, who, it will
be remembered, was indicted with Jno.
Bell, Charles Prowitt and Thee. Graham
for the burning of Bell's Trunk Factory,
and was placed on the witness stand by
the Commonwealth against Bell, made
application for his discharge on the
ground that he bad been used as a wit
ness by the Commonwealth. Judge
Stowe stated that when Daffy was called
he was distinctlyinformed that his course
would not shield him from punishment,
and that he should not say anything
more than he desired. It appeared from
the statements made to the - Court that
some understanding was agreed upon
that Duffy should not be prosecuted if
be testified for the prosecution. Judge
Stowe said that if such an arrangement
had been made by the District Attorney
or the Fire Marshal, be thought it should
be carried out in fan faith and a nolle
pros. entered. He did not feel like taking
the responsibility, but would hold the
matter under consideration.
The following sentences were then pro.
John Boyle, found guilty of a feloni
ous assault and battery upon John Mc-
Donald, was first called up for sentence.
Thetassault, it will be remembered, oc
curred on Liberty street, on the night of
December sth. The Court remarked that
the offense was an aggravated one, and
the punishment should bo in proportion
to the crime. Boyle was then sentenced
'to undergo five years' imprisonmenkin
the Western Penitenttary.
John Sullivan was next called up. The
defendant, who is about fifteen years of
age, was tried on a charge of setting fire
to the Pittsburgh' Glass• House, in Bir
mingham, but was acquitted. The Court
said that nis own admissions showed that
he was unfit to be at large, and there
fore ordered him to the House of Refuge.

James S. Robin son, after having knocked
him down, on the n ight of March 12th,

Confession of Twatehell—A Singular
Statement—llls Wife Charged with

Oar readers.will remember the terrible
murder of Mrs. Hill in Philadelphia
some time ago, at the residence of ler
son•in-law, George Twitch°ll, after which
her body was thrown out ofi the window
into an area below. Twitchell and
wife were arrested promptly and at the
trial the Common wealth abandoned the
prosecution of Mrs. Twitclieil, and the
jury, under the instruction of the Court,
rendered a verdict of not guilty in her
Twitehell was sentenced to be execu.
ted on Thursday, April Bth, and having
unsuccessfully fought his case up to the
Supreme Court of the United States, has,
as a last resort, made a statement to his
spiritural adviser, the Rev. Mr. Bring
burst. of a most extraordinary nature.
He charges Me wife with crommittinif the
'2:Oder, and confesses that be was acces
sory after the fact'.
Strange as the statement ls, it is cor
roborated in some degree by the conduct
of Mrs. Twitchell, who has, for some
time past, ceased her visits to her hus
band, and in said to have expressed a
great anxiety that reporters should be
excluded from the scene °fhb' execution.
The accused murderess left the city at an
early hour on Saturday morning„ in an
ticipation of her husband's confession,
but she must have been ignorant, if
guilty, of the constitutional heedom she
enjoys from arrest. after once being ac
quitted. The following is Twitchell's
STATEMENT OF GEORGE 8. TWITCHELL, JR.
I went to my room on the night of the
murder. and instead of going to bed I
laid down on the loungein my room and
fell asleep. My wife was in bed at the
time. I was aroused by her repeated
calls and ran down to the dining room,
where I found her much excited, saying
"I have had a quarrel with mother and
have killed her;"l do not know whether
she said "save me!" or "help me hide it!"
but at last we threw the body of Mrs.
Rill out of the window to make it look
as if she fell out; I went down stairs and
washed by hands and face at the hydrant;
then went to my room, undressed and
went to bed; my wife came up afterwards
and got into bed, where we staid until
Sarah Campbell rung the - bell; I thin'k we
were in bed ten or twenty minutes; I
made a solemn vow to the Eternal God
that night that I would never revell it; i
but I cannot keep it any longer. lam
sorry that I have said I knew nothing of
it; but I did it with the vow in my mind,
and-to save my wife. I now make these
disclosures that I may have peace with
iSigned.) GEORGE S. TWITCHELL.
n presence of Rev. George Bringhurst
and William B. Perkins.
The Philadelphia Bulletin thinks there
are some teem to corroborate the confes
sion, but 'there are many other things
about it which will fled very partial cre
dence among those who are familiar
with the details of the case. Twdehell's
statement, while it does not relieve him
from the onus of the crime, overturns
some of the essential theories of the
and unless furthei confes
sions shall explain away some of the
glaring inconsistencies of the present
statement with the evidence given at the
trial, it will not be received as that of a
dying man. The confession would
alter the degree of murder in which the
prisoner has been round guilty, but it is
hardly likely that a pardon or reprieve
will be granted by Governor Geary on
the strength of its having been made.
Worse Than Corner Loafing
We have frequently had occasion to
complain of annoyances to which the
more respectable and better classes of
society were subjected, in order to
gratify the Idle curiosity of a few idle,
lazy, good-for-nothing loafers, who are a
pest to any community which is so un- -
fortunate as to be burdened with them,
and we shall continue to condemn soon
drones on society so long as It is our duty
to oppose that which is wrong and up
hold the right. There is a prevailing
nuisance, however, which, up to the
present time, we have refrained from
mentioning, but forbearance has ceased
to be a virtue,
and we will call the atten
tion of the Mayor .to it, who should
have it abated if 'he has the au
thority,' and if not, Council should
at once provlde the necessary au
thority. We refer to the annoyance
every lady and gentleman is subjected to
who visits the Opera House; in conse
quence of the collecting of a crowd of tbe
same idle, lazy vagahonds referred to
above, at the entrance, and who stand
there blocking up the sidewalk until the
last lady has passed down the stairs, and
with difficulty makes her way through
the crowd. It is not only the inconveni
ence of passing through this crowd of
loafers (we say loafers because none oth
ers would be 'guilty ofsuch conduct,) but
the indecent remarks and vulgarisms
,which flow from the months of these vile
creatures, contaminating all with whom
they come in leant, is too much to be
tolerated, and there are doubtless many
persons prevented from attending amuse
ments at this establishment for that rea
son alone.' The Manager, we know,
would like to have the nuisance abated,
and as he Pays a heavy tax it is thelluty
of the city to protect him and the public
alike from such annoyancea.

The New Style Bonnets and Hats.
The spring styles are always of inter
est to our wives and daughters, and in
deed at all seasons they are pleased to
read of what is to be "just the thing" in
dress and fashion. Dear little ducks of
bonnets and saucy, jaunty caps, perhaps,
undergo more change each season than
any other articles of costume. The rea
son forth's, we are cruel enough to be.
lieve, is that the shrewd milliners take
advantage of thi, weakness, of the fair
sex for somethi g new which strongly
preponderates crier their best laid reso.
Intions of econiry. If Mary Jones
could wear a bon et two successive years
and remain all the while in style, thpre
would be a dearth of business at the
millinery shops; but Mary, who would
as leave be out of the world as out of
the fashion, watcheathe pretty new bon
nets as they appear with each new quar
ter, and if a straw more is laid on
or taken therefrom by the crafty
milliner, she casts the old bonnet to the
rag basket, and invests in a new one up
to the requirements of Susan Smith's
critical eye. It is not very pleasant
for husbands and Githers to read the
latest fashions, because they feel that it
is the levying of a heavy direct tax on
their pockets by some \ moustached
French man-milliner who holds a proud
and powerful place on the throne of rash.
ion, and has more followers than any
other of the - crowned monarchs of the
world. We never write or print fashion
able_ gossip for them, so they needn't
read; but our lady readers we shall
always be happy to furnish' with all we
can clip, glean or find out about such
topics, so we shall commence and say
something . about the styles which will
prevail in hats and bonnets so soon as
April fairly enters upon its way.
The leading fashionable millinery and
trimming houses of Joseph Horne & Co.,
Macrum, Glyde et Co., Macrnm & Car
lisle, F. H. Eaton and W. W. Moorhead
have had their spring openings, arid pick
hig up an item here and there from each
of them, we may consideroureadves post
ed on the styles which will prevail in
bonnets, and hats. Bonnets are vanish
ing—in quantity we mean, but not in
prices. We had, thought that in point of
size the minimum had been attained a
year ago, but the costly little ornament
which is to intervene between the heav
ens and the heads of our wives and
daughters this season is astill nearer ap
proach to microscopic proportion. But
what they lack in size they more than
make up in richness and costliness of
materials. This is certainly a great com
fort—to the milliners. There is, how
ever, a difference between the' past and
present styles. The shape this spring
has a more decided front, is a lit.tie more
teppy—a little nearer the "diadem," and,
on the !whole, presents a rather saucier
air. The shape and the present style of
wearing the hair harmonize admirably,
both tending to cover the forehead, which
is supposed tube "classic."
In materials and trimming almost
everything is effected that fancy can sug
gest. Laces, flowers, feathers, wheat,
straws, grasses, birds, birds' nests, beads,
bags, beetles, and bluebottle flies, all
come in for distinctive honors. The
same general exuberance exists in re.
gard to colors, though buff and black
seem to predominate, while bright scar
let, green, purple" violet, and other
shades will be worn with, if anything,
more than the usual number of white.
The effect of this artistic medley.is of
course very fine. French bonnets' will
,be somewhat. Americanized, although it
is evident that-we are rapidly develop.
ing a taste that will "swallow without
winking" the triost ultra fancies of Par
isian fashion-mongers. In the matter of
French Flowers, even nature itself (if
that were possible) seems to be outdone,
which, with the birds and gaudy-colored
insects, has somewhat the effect of ren
dering the wearer's head a trophy of the
tropics. We presume that the next step
will be to add in counterfeit the warb
ling of the birds and the fragrance of the

tiful effect. •
Another, alio to be greatly' admired,
was of black lace trimmed with some
rose and moss buds, which formed the
entire face trimming of the bonnet and
having a small double fall of rich lace
down the back.
A French bonnet, of a light shade of
straw colored crape, should attract gen
eral attention for its oddity. It is trim
med with a wreath of black lace leaves,
the latter being formed of fine /frice and
straw. For richness and' style this spe
cimen had no superior among any ex
nother representative favorite is a

wi h a full bunch of crystalized wheat

ceedingly beautiful. •
In Hats the openings were replete with
novelties and graceful gems, and it is'
now conceded tbAt every lady; whether
old or young, must ho provided with a
round hat. Either for undress or the
country, they are really more worn than
bonnets. They were displayed in whit
are known as the French, English and
American styles, in• white, brown, black
•and other colors, and made of straw,
lace, chip, silk and other materials,
mostly very fully and heavily trimmed
with flowers, feathers, bugs, birds and
other ornaments. If combined
with lace are much used for streaniers;
Among the specialties that we may
designate was a black-illusion lace trim
. a superb boquet of rose and
ivy leaves, and streamers of lace' falling
gracefully &mesa the back of the hair.
Another was a white straw Parisian
hat, also much admired, with a ruching
trimming of scarlet satin, black lace and
scarlet poppies. - t ' _
Still another novelty was a black Eng

baguet of•wild flowers, and ends of ve

to hear it asserted that he entertains the
idea of removing to Phihtdelphia and en
tering into a large business establish
ment of that city as partner. We hope
he will not, although we 'may , be selfish
in wishing to retain him here, but Pitts
burgh must be sorry to lose such • repre
sentative men. However, we can but
say whatever firm he may enter he will
prove , a yaluable acquisition, as he is
prompt, energetic and honorable and a
model holiness man in every respect.
Weiwish h im that large measure of suc
cess orwhieh he is so eminently worthy.
Death of Daniel L. Collier, Esq.
We learn. trom the Philadelphia In
quiier that Daniel L. Collier, Esq., a gen
tleman well known in this city, died at
his Y residence in that city on. Tuesday
evening. The deceased was born in
Litchilel4Connecticut, in the year 1796.
He was the son of Thomas Collier, who
published the Litchfield Monitor news
paper at that period. In 1817 Mr. Col
lier removed to Steubenville, Ohlo,where
he soon atterward engaged in the prae i
tic°, of the law, which he continued for
nearly forty years. For a long time his
legal business was very extensive. Ron.
E. M. Stanton, Judge W. F. Johnston,
U. S. Code, of Connecticut, Hon. 0. F.
Moore, of Ohio, and other distinguished
Men, were among his students. He was
active, in all public affairs and enter
prises. His general excellence of char
acter caused him to be very highly es
teemed. Mr. Collier returned to Villa
delphla in the year 1880 - and.devote'd his
attention chie fl y to• religious and bene
volent matters. He was a member of
the' Board of Managers of the House of
Refuge, of the Asylum 'for the Blind, of
the; Presbyterian Board of Publication,
end of other institutions of a similar
Mary Jones; a widow, residing in the
Fifth ward, Allegheny, was brought be
fore Mayor Drum, on Saturday morning,
on complaint of several'of her neighbors,
who stated she had been, for several
months past, almost continually In a
state of intoxication, leaving tier family
of four "children to take care of them
selves' or depend tipon 'the' charity of
benevolent persons. Two of the child
ren are twins but nine months old. The
other two are aged five and six years
respectively. Many times during the ,
winter, had it not been for the attentions
bestowed upon them by the neighbors,
the children would doubtless have per
ished, as they were left entirely desti
tute of food or clothing by their mother,
who consumed her earnings in gratify
ing an insatiable appetite for drink.
After bearing the circumstances of the
case the Mayor committed the woman to
jail, for thirty 'days for vagrancy and
called the attention of the managers of
the Allegheny Orphans' Asylum to the
children, whic h resulted in their removal
to that institution.
The attendance of pupils last week at
the opening of the spring term of this
widely celebrated Institution was very
large, and the arrivals every day since
indicate that it will - be an unusually pros
perous term. The renovation and
changes made during the vacation were
the subject of general remark, both by
pupils and visitors, all of whom agreed
in pronouncing • the College buildings
among the• most elegantly fitted up, com
fortable and home-like to be found any
where. The greater part of the week was
employed in averaging the classes, &e.,
but the present week will witness the
term fully commenced and teachers and
pupils - actively engaged In work. We.
nave heretofore spoken of- the urse of
study pursued at the College, and deem
it useless to say further on the subject,
beyond advising parents wig ing to
have daughters thoroughly edricated in
all the elegant and practical accomplish
ments,..ready for a perfect performance
of life's duties, to place them under the
care of President Pershing at his admi
rably conducted and excellent College.
