Yesterday morning Fred. Zacharias, a
boy about fifteen years of age, made in
formation before the Mayor, charging
Garrett Phelan, of the Twelfth ward,
Jacob Guttendorf, of Bloomfield, James
McManus, proprietor of the McManlius
House, Penn street, and Pat. Bradley,
Wylie street, with selling liquor on Sun
day. It appears that Fred, in company
with several other boys, were on a bit of
a “spree" Sunday, and during the day
Visited all the places above named and
purchased liquor, and the •yansequence
was they were considerably Intoxicated.
Feeling repentant the next morning, as
drunken men mostly do, when it is
bearable to get another drink, Fred re
solved to attune for his misconduct on
the day previous by bringing all the
above named parties to justice, and
hence the information. Bradley waived
a hearing and paid the penalty of fifty
dollars, which each of the others were
required to do after a hearing. Onedialf
of the penalty in each case, sae hundred
dollare In all, was paid to the informer,
and the other half to the Guardians of
the Poor.

We would advise him to try. his luck

Coaldeate Operation az a Snail *ale.
On • Friday morning last a respectable
Woking German, with a baiket on his
arm * tinkled ihe Diamond Market and,
slier looking round for some time;
stopped at hir. Thomas /amberlWO
stand and inquired very patikularly
about pa price of mess, after which he
remarked that he must go andparch as e
some agga and, having no suagl change,
asked frt. E. to let him have three or
live dollars ibr s few moments, and as
soon as hePiliroluNed the eggs he would
return and set' Ms basket of beer and
pay the whole amount. Mr. Simberiatr
generously gave him the three dol
lars, but the fellow neglected to call for
his basket and beef.
The next day the same individual
played the trick on Mr. Adam Roth.
Mr. Roth said , he suspected him, having
heard of the transaction of the previous
day, and gave him the money as a trap,

Bold Burglarl--mtemilit tie kelp the

Saturday and Sunday
hOdat: ,
tempt wax made a rob the city Bank.
on Yin avenue. opposite the ClathetireL
The operators' effected an elltrialee into
the cellar underneath the bank, from a
door over an .entrance leading from a"
public alley at the side of the building.
They were evidently experienced hands
at the btutiness, and took every precau
lion to escape detection. After getting
inside, it seems they placed an old quilt
across the entrance, and tucked it down
in such a manner that the door was kept
fastened, and not a ray of light could
peer through to attract attention outside.
The burglars, after fastening the win
dows of the cellar in a similar manner,
went to work.
The bank vault, containing tb e safe and
valuables, rests upon a foundation of solid
masonry, feet Rutile, built up from
the cellar to the floor of the banking
room. This foundation is built in one
corner of the cellar and capped by a
flagstone about one foot in thickness,
which extends over upon two- of the
cellar wall& The thieves commenced
their operations on this foundation with
the intention of first tearing it away,
thus letting the floor of the vault fall, to
gether with the safe, into the cellar.
Thry seemed tO have worked faithfully.
and succeeded in tearing awayabout half
of the Soundation, commencing at, one
corner and demolishing it in a diagonal
direction backward end •upward. This
would have allowed the flagstone to fall
had it not still rested on the two walls of
the cellar.
The thieves thus found themselves
balked. To get the flag out they would
have been compelled to tear down that
portion of the cellar wall which it
lapped over—a simple impracticability.
At this point they seem to have been in
terrupted by the janitor of the building,
Monday morning, who came to the side
door on the alley, about four o'clock,
and endeavored to get into the cellar,
but found the entrance' blocked up. He
then triad another entrance from the in
terior of the building, and was success
ful; the thieves, it ie surmised, in the
meanwhile beating - a hasty retreat.
When getting into the cellar he discov
ered the attempt, and thinking,
_from ap
pearances, it to have been succ essful, he
immediately proceeded to the residence
of the Cashier, Mr. MoTighe, and in
formed him of the affair.
Mr. MoTighe, however, on arriving at
the bank, found everything safe, and as
soon as possible, employed a number of
masons to repair the foundation, which
was accomplished in a few hours. The,
thieves in their flight left behind the
quilt, an anger and gimlet. With the
anger they had bored a hole through the
door of the banking room, but for what
purpose Is not known. Chief of Police
Hague took possession of these articles,
but has not yet discovered the parties.
The affair, though unsuccessful, was
one of extreme boldness and perseve
rance. Ills supposed the burglars were
working two nights at least, as the work
done could hardly have been accomplish
ed in one.
There was no person about the bank
from Saturday evening until Monday
morning, and they had abundant oppor
tunity to carry on their operations. The
cdrudruction of the foundation for the
vault speaks well for the forethought
and sagacity of the builder; for to thisar
rangement it alone is due the failure of
the robbers to accomplilh their designs.
The number of cases disposed . of each
morning at the Mayor's ,t.lourt is an evi
dence of the efficiency and vigilance of
the police force. It is a rare sight to see
a drunken man on the street now unless
he is accompanied by a city guardian.
But notwithstanding the vigilance of the
officers in this respect, it is quite evident
from the number of persons In the lock
up yesterday morning, charged with
drunkenness, that an immense quan
tity of whisky had bops sold
on Sunday, yet we do not hear
of any dealers- being returned by
members lof (the olice force for vio-
lation of the law. There appears to be
an aversion among the police generally
against making informations of this
character, which is altogether wrong. It
is as much their duty to inferno en a man
for a violation of the Sunday liquor law.
as it is their duty to arrest a drunken
cman. More than this, the law iteelt of
fers a reward to the man who faithfully
performs his duty under it.
Water-pipe has been laid on White
sides alley In the Eighth ward, and is
now being laid on Townsend street. It
has been the custom heretofore to post
pone the laying of water-pipe until after
the streets or alleys were graded and
paved, a very bad custom evidently, as
it necessitated the breaking of the corner
or centre of the paved street, in order to
to lay the pipe, and the pavement being
generally relaid before the ground has
thoroughly settled, as a matter of course,
the paving would settle, more or leas, at
that point and leave the street uneven.
This custom, we are informed, has been
abandoned, and the pipe is now being
laid before the paving is done.
We hope the contractor for the grading
and paving of Townsend street will
push his work and complete the job as
soon as soon as possible after the paving
is done.

Sunday afternoon, $ number of lads,

and stole a quantity of goods from a no

Yegado evening, about twenty min
tites ffiria cJelock, a painful sleadent oo
mined in Allegheny, resulting in the al
ined instant deathofJosepkAlbree,a lad
aged about ten years, eldest son of
Aibree, Jr., the well known shoe dealer.
The little fellow, in company with a
younger brother, was playing around
the plat(orm at the Freight Depot of the
Western Pennsylvania Railroad, in the
rear of the Catholic Church, Anderson
street. At the time a number of freight
care wereatawling on the track alongside
the platform, which were being coupled
together to make up a train. Two cars
at - the head of the train had just been
coupled, in doing which they came to
gether with considerable force, causing
those in the rear to be forced backward.
At this instant, the men heard a scream,
and upon looking , back, saw one of the
boys screaming and gesticulating for the
train to move on. Running to the place,
they discovered . the oldest boy
crushed between the bumper of
the rear oar and the "bumping
block" placed at the end of the track.
The little victim was quickly extri
cated, but never spoke or opened his
eyes and ceased to breathe in about two
minutes afterward& A physician was
summoned, but when he arrived life
was extinct. .The blood oozed from the
mouth and nose, but when examined
there were no external signs of injury
save a black' spot on hie breast, where
the greatest force memo to have been
felt. He was removed to the residence
of his parents, at the corner of Cedar I
avenue and Avery street, Fourth ward.
The officers of the train say they never
noticed the lade until attracted by the
screams . of the younger one. This one
Bays he and his brother had been run
ning backward and forward between the
"bumping block" and the car in playlag,
and had done so several times before the
accident occurred. The Coroner has been
notified and will hold an inquest on the
remains to-day.
Mrs. Barclay's Lecture.
In announcing the free lecture of this
lady for last night our types were so mis
used as to fail entirely of our object.
Mrs. Barclay delliered her first lecture
at the Sixth U. P. Church, (Dr. A. D.
Clarke's,) in the Fifth ward, Allegheny,
formerly known as Manchester. Her
course of lectures will be continued at
the same place every evening of the pre
sent week.
Mrs. Barclay is a lady of imposing pre
sence, of many and varied attainments,
has a chaste and eloquent elocution, and
comes among us well accredited, as well
for her moral as for high intellectual
characteristics. Her subject, "How to
Oet Health and How to Keep It," has
been with her a
!s pecial study. She
treats It with each marked ability and
In a way so practical and 'useful to her
audiences of whatever age or sex, that
we hope large numbers will at test, by
their presence, their sense of the great
merit of the aocOmplished lecturer, and
thus induce her to re-visit the city on
some future occasion.
Some time since, as our readers will
remember, the leather store of Messrs.
Spangler & Graham, Allegheny Dia
mond, was robbed of a considerable
quantity of leather. A part of the prop.
erty was found In an alley in the rear of
the establishment the next morning.
Sunday afternoon a large piece of leather
was found by some boys at the mouth of
the West Common sewer. Thinking
there might be more of the article !Aar
by the boys went into the sewer, End
and about twelve feet from the entrance
they discovered a roll made fast to the
upper part of the arch, clear of the
water. The police were informed, and
the leather removed to the Mayor's office,
where a portion of it was identified by
Messrs. Spangler & Graham yesterday
morning. There is yet no clue to the
thieves. -
Tried to Settle.
Joseph !weal, like Pickwick, a single
gentleman, obtained lndging at a board
ing house on Sixth street, some weeks
since. Becoming desirous of changing
his quatters yesterday, it is stated, he
attempted to leave the old place without
settling up his score. This proceeding
agitated and exasperated the proprietor
of the. establishment, Mr. Charles
Rauhm_, who thereupon attempted to
settle the matter by inflicting a severe
chastisement on hie delinquent Warder.
The victim, believing this treatment to
be entirely uncalled for, lodged Informa
tion for assault and battery against his
assailant before Alderman McMasters.
The accused was arrested and gave ball
for a hearing.

The Eveaing Mai/ yesterday con

Aire Alderman Z.l'Masters, yesterday,
against Charles Hazen for false pre.
