DEATH OF AN OLD MERCHANT.
We regret to announce the sudden
death, by paralysis, of Mr. Jeers P.
Tama; at noon, on Tuesday, at his
residence:on Cliff street. In 1819, when
a.boy,Mr. Taus emigrated from Ire

His death, though not entirely unex

The Alabama treaty has been rejected
by the Senate by an almost unanimous
vote. But one t3enlitor sustained it.
Beyond an elaborate speech by Mr. SUM
NER, there was little or no discussion,
that speech presenting, under a general
consent, the entire American case. The
usual injunction of secrecy has been
removed so far as to authorize the imme
diate publication of that speech, and it
will be laid before the country at once
and in full. :The telegraph affords a
meagre synopsis of its positions, but we
prefer to suspend our comments, until we
have the complete text of the argument
which thus officially presents the Ameri
can view of this seriously important
question'. In the meantime, it is proper
to remark that the unanimity of Senators
must be accepted as a decisive expression
of public sentiment, and that the - policy
of the Administration is certain to be
conformed to the line they have taken.
Whatever may have been the variance of
opinions in this country, respecting this
business, we have at last a settled policy
for all to accept, —and it will be acquiesced
in accordingly. There will be the less
hesitancy on this point, since the final
adjustment of the; questions in dispute
need not be anticipated at early—day.
OUR LOCAL OFFICES.
Hon. RUSSELL Ennurr, accepting his
appointment as Collector oflnternal Rev
enue for the •XXIId District, will .enter
upon his new duties on Monday next.
He has resigned his trust, as one of the
State Senators from Allegheny county,
the resignation to take effect on Friday,
the 16th. Elected in -October, 1867, his
Senatorial term would not legally expire
until 1870, the succession being deter
mined at the October election of that
year. As the present session of the
Legislature is to close on the 16th, Mr.
EIIIISTT will have served but two-thirds
of the Constitutional term. In his retire.
ment, the people, not only of Allegheny,
but of the whole. CoMmonwealth, will
lose a Senator whose superior in integrity,
fidelity, discretion and influence, both
personal and official, has never been
known at Harriaburg. We will add that
his constituents resign their Senator with
a regret, which is only tempered by their
grateful sense of that wise discretion
which confides an important Federal
trust to a man so capable, and
to a Republican so deserving. The
new Collector, T. W. Davis. Esq.,
takes his office on Saturday, the 17th.
Mr. DAVIS receives this appointment in
conformity to the wishes of a very large
majority of our Republican friends, and
with the expressed preference of our
leading business circles in his favor. We
doubt if Mr. DELANO his yet given a Col
lectorship to any gentleman presenting
stronger papers than were filed in behalf
of Mr. DAVIS. These papers represented
almost the entire financial, commercial
and Republican elements of this important
district. We need not add one word to
their recommendations. The community
already know that, Collector DAVIS will
justify their endorsements and the choice
of the Department. The new Collector
of the Port, Taos. Sum, Esq., also
enters upon his new ditties with tfie be
ginning of next week. This. gentleman
was recently our gity Controller, and in
that post manifested a special capacity for
official business. As Collector and De
pository, be cannot fail to give the utmost
The Senatorial vacancy must be filled
at the election of next autumn. We hear
a number of names of the probable can
didates, viz: Messrs. B. B. CLuLa;GEo.
WiLsoii, Taos. HOWARD, T. A. Roman .
and.Gro. H. ANDERSON. Other gentle
men may also be suggested.
THEN AND NOW.
When, early 'in the year 1866, Mr Ax-
DREW Jox6som flagrantly manifested his
secret intent to betray the party which
elected him to the Vice Presidency, and
to dishonor the country which was al
ready lamenting his accidental promotion
to its highest office, there no longer re
' mained any plea upon which such of our
Republican friends as were inclined to be
timid and conservative, could continue to
palliate or excuse that man's political de
linquency or his personal infamy. The
result was that, with a very few excep
tions, who were either office-holders or
journalistic pilgrims to the shrine of place
and profit, the entire body of the Repub—
lican party confronted his Administra
tion, before the expiration of that year,
with its hearty contempt. .
Bat nitre bOnnti to' remind our read
ers, in the interests of Utah, that this
journal had not waited for the events of
all that year, to indicate its proper line of
policy towards President JonnsoN. •As
early as in. dannaly 'Rh we were alto
gether satisfied, that he. was meditating
the most unqualified treachery to his
party, to the loyal North and to the
Union element in the rebel States, and
that nothing was to be gained by tempo
rizing with the political situation, in the
delusive hope of a future harmony which
would be sinipirimpossible. With this
conviction,' the Gazarrn took a decided
•position at once. It was the first Re
publican jourial in this cou ntry
to : break ground openly against
Johnsonism. Enjoying at that time

nia will be gratified, by this official recog
nition of a journal which has never
swerved in the maintenance of their fa
vorite opinions. And, still beyond all
that, a philosophical and discriminating
public wilt incline to see; in this three
years' retrospect, a palpable illustration 1
of the old maxim that time brings about
its jest retributions.
The effort being made in the Legisla
ture to impose a tax on crude petroleum
meets with hearty condemnition from all
personi interested in production. The
original, proposition to tax the oil
one cent per gallon was so amended as
to reduce the tax to one-quarter of a cent
per gallon. The operators want no tax,
and declare if one be imposed that it will
do great halm to their interests and dam.
age the • general prosperity of the State.
The Titusville Elena, the organ of the
oil interest, in commenting on the pro
posed taxation, says with much truth and
The revival in producing in West Vir
ginia, and the discovery of a deodorizing
process by whiph the Canada oil, hither
to next to worthless, is made as good as
that produced' here, have brought , into
competition with the product of Penn
sylvania the production of, and the large
stock of oil in' Canada, and a greatly en
larged production in 'West Virginia.
With all this in view t the tax bill is one
of the most ignorant pieces of legislation,
detrimental alike to the beat interests of
the State and Nation. • ,
What kind of legislation is it to op.
press a great industrial interest at a time
when - that interest needs protection?
What can the Senators and Representa
tives be thinking of when they vote to
impose an oppressive specific tax on Pe
troleum, when the State does not need
the revenue to be derived therefrom?
Who wants a horde of tax.gatherers
and. inspectors, an army of warehouse
men, numerous and immense State bond
ed warehouses, to hold the oil, and to
collect a tax of which there is no need.
From the determination that has been
apparent in the Legislature thus far to
pass this most odious measure over the
remonstrance of every person engaged in
the pretrolenm trade in Western Penn
sylvania, it is scarcely to be expected that
those who have engineered the bill and
forced it thus far will let go of it until it
is finally passed. The only hope of the
producers is, then, that the Governor will
veto the bill, and to this end no effort
should be spared to bring the matter in
its true bearings before him.
A sorrrnmtw journalist thus wri . teac.on
cerning the good points secured to South
ern society by the elevation of General
GRANT to the Presidency:
But what a change has the last few
months witnessed! General Grant's elec
tion buried the "lost cause" beyond hope
of resurrection and established reconstruc
tion on a firm and lasting basis; and now
that the "madness of the hour" is passing
away, we do not believe that there are a
dozen men in the South—outside of dis
appointed political aspirants—who would
have it otherwise. The traveller who
stops at the St. Charles Hotel, New Or

tures of Lee and Jackson which but re

The newspapers have dropped the "so

can see no remedy for this evil. unless it
may be by fixing a maximum rate

At an informal meeting of the drug

let, the reaolutions passed by the
County Medical Society, relative to filling
prescriptions and the - selling of patent
medicines, were discussed, and a com
mittee appointed to prepare a report in
reference to the matter. Another meet
ing was held last evening at the Western
University, for the piarpose of hearing
this report and organizing a Pbarmacen
• The meeting was called to order
by Joseph. Abel, Esq., who presented
the report of the Coinmittee, which was
a reply to the resolutions passed by the
County Medical Society. The first reso
lution, relative to the employment of as
sistants, and entrusting the compound
ing of prescriptions to - those only who
are properl ualified, both by experi
ence and dustion, was heartily en
dorsen. In reference to the second reso
lution, requesting druggists of the coun
ty to decline the sale of the articles
knownsapatent medicines, the CommW
tee stated. that while every honorable
pharmaceutist disapproves of patent
medicines, he could not at present
successfully , Carry on his business
by discarding , them altogether. but
recommended - that the assortment of
these articles be restricted to the small
est possible number, and the use of all
fair memo to restrain their manufacture
and sale. The committee further stated
that druggists were willing to cooperate
with physicians to have proper legisla
tive enactment upon the subject. The
third resolution. requesting them never
to prescribson their own responsibility,
or refill a prescription except upon au
thority of the physician with whom it
originated, was considered by the com
mittee, who coincided in the first part of
it. , In regard to the second clause,
about refilling prescriptions, the com
mittee reported a resolution passed by
the American Pharmaceutical Associa
tion which opposed the indiscriminate
renewal of prescriptions, bet • thought
restriction to a single prescription im
practicable. In the matter, however, the
Committee could see no reason for act
ing contrary to this provision, if the
agreement is a general and unanimous
one, and If the physicians and public are
informed of such an arrangement. With
regard to the resolutions passed by the
Medical Society that physicians would
do all they oouid to promote the inter
ests of such druggists firs complied with
the requests in the resolution adopted
by them, the Committee state that it
appeared to them that, this resolution
meant that physicians would only patron
ize the experienced, competent and hon
orable pharmaceutist. If such was the in
tent the Committee was pleased and
trusted the resolution might be adhered
The report was read and after some
disetuolon laid over for final action until

Mr. Perry C. Dant, a fanner, was
swindled out of four hundred dollars
yesterday in this wise: Tuesday even

taken the train at Philadelphia bound
for Janesville, Wisconsin, via Pitts
burgh. Just before the train started a
genteel looking young man stepped into
the oar and took a seat directly in front
of the pair. The train moved on and the
young man's tongue commenced to
move also. In a short time he had intro.
duced himself to the twain as bound tor

compauy to relieve the tedium• of the
journey. His name was J. B. Austin,

ACADEMY or M& sic.—Manager C. D.
Hess, of Crosby's Opera House, Chicago,
who for some timo past has been in Phil
adelphia with his entire troupe, will, on
his return to Chicago, stop a week at the
Academy of Music in this city, and pro-•
duce in all its grandeur "The Field of
the Cloth of Gold," which'is admitted by
the Eastern critics to be the most ,
grand and magnificent spectacular)
extravaganza ever placed upon the!
boards. This piece has been running!
for over two months in Philadelphia,,
and was on the boards for the same I
length of time in Chicago. Our' citizentr
know that whatever Mr. Hess does in
the theatrical line is well done.._ and full
houses may be anticipated. The time of
the arrival of Mr. Hess and his great
company.has not yet been definitely ar
ranged, but it will be at no distant day,
SHARPLEY'S MINSTRELS.—This world
renowned troupe, favorites everywhere,
will commence an engagement at Ma
sonic Hall, Wednesday of next week.
They, coine from Chicago, where they
have been performing to large audiences
for one hundred consecutive nights. Mr.
Sam Sharpley, the marvelous wit and
humorist, has ,control of the troupe,
which, explains, Ina measure, the secret
of its great success. The programme
for their entertainments next week Is en'
tirely new, and will be found fully up to •
their former standard. Crowded houses,
we have uo doubt, will be their reward.
PITTSBURGH THEATRE.—Mr. Taylor
continues to draw immense crowds to the
Pittabtuth Theatre, and doubtless will
do so until his engagement terminates.
There are many other attractions, but
Taylor is, of course, the chief attraction.
Ducks are very useful fowls, in their
way. Sometimeao however, their way
leads them or their owners into trouble,
as was the case yesterday. John O'Neill
and Frank M'Farland occupy neighboring
tenements in Ormsby borough. O'Neill
has a garden plot 'attached to his premi
ses, in which he takes great pride. Mo-
Fathead:has, a lot . of ducks equally dear
to him. The ducks , it is alleged, have a
way of enterlSig p'Neill'sgarden plot, and
damagingdeetroying the plants,
much to the digust and irritation of the
owner. O'NeliL to prevent this intru
sion yesterday, spent the greater portion
of the day in repairing the , fence be
tween the 'two premises, but, according
to his statements, he had hardly tin
'shed the job before it was torn down
again by McFarland and his wife, who
threatened him with all kinds of bodily
harm if he dared to erect it again. Fear
ing to proceed further without profeation'
of-the law, O'Neill came before Alderman
McMasters and lodged informations for
malicious mischief r and surety of the
peace against McFarland and his wife.
Warrants were issued.

TRUSSES AND HERNIA.
The sad and deplorable condition of many who
are afflicted with her nis or rupture of the bow
els, calls loudly for some efficient and unmistak
able remedy that will not only in every case give
efficient relief, but in many cues effect a radical
and thorough cure. These cases of lirrnia have
become so frequent, that it is computed that one
sixth of. the male population are said to be
troubled: In some way or another, with this ter-
Mile ailment; and in very many eases do not
know where to apply for an appropriate remedy, •
oftentimes dot knowing whether an appliance fa
really, needed or not; and If it should be needed,.
they often do not know where or to whom they
should make application. The world is full of
Trusses for the retention and cure of this lateen
table evil, oftentimes an incontestable proof of
their total and inadequate fitness to relieve the
sufferer. This need not be; Dr. Keyser, at his
ten medicine store. No. 167 Liberty street, is
abundantly supplied with every appliance, need
ful to . the retention sad relief of this terrible
atillction, so that every one can be proeerly .
dtted at a moderate cost, with the full assurance
that the appliance Is the best that the mechanical
department of surgery can afford. The Doctor " `
bas pursued the investigation at hernia with
more than ordinary care for over thirty years,
so that the afflicted can place implibit re
liance on his skid and integrity with the full as
surance that they will not only get the best truss,
sultabli to tne case, but likewise a thorough and
efficient knowledge of its proper application.
There are many persons who not only Baal/Ice
their health, but even their lives, for want of a
proper truss, or e truss properly applied. Strut.
gulated and irreducable rupthre, is a far more
common ailment nowthan in former years; and
may we not justly arrive at the conclusion, that
Its frequency is often . occasioned by the neglect
and carelessness of the sufferers themselves. No
one would be regarded as sa,.e or excusable who -
would go for a whole winter without the proper
clothing to shield them from the inclemency of
the weather, but, at the same time, it Is thought
a light affair to suffer for years with a protrusion
. Minna only sublects they person to inconveni
ence, but even places life itself In jeopardy.
Those of; our readers +/Thema be unfortunate to
need appliances of this kind cannot act more
wisely than to cut this advertisement out and
preserve it, so as to enable them to retain the
place where such Important preservers oflUfe and .
health are to be procured.
