Hon. Russell Errett, chairman, preald
ing, with Col. 3. g. Stewart as Secretary.
The attendance was quite large, nearly
every district in the County being repre
sented. The President stated the object
of the meeting, and announced the
first business in 'order 'the 'fixing of a
time for holding the Primary Meetings
and the County CouVentkni.• _ , ; „

Mr; Stewart• offered an amendment
that the ()aunty Convention nominate
the County Executive Committee.
After _some further discusSion,. Mr.
Bayne offered a substitute for Mr. Pur
viance's remoluticin providing for the
huLdfticof two Ciniventionl, one a
Connty and 'the other a ittdicial,
the County 7 Convention to nominate
all 'county officers except Senator and
Reprementatives and Delegates to the
State Convention, these to be nomina
ted by the Judicial Ofiniention.
Mr. Taylor moved. as an amendment,
that the nominations for Clerk of Courts,
Treasurer and.Reglster be left to the Ju
dicial Convention.
The amendment was not seconded.
Considerable discussion now ensued on
Mr. Bayne's substitute.
Mr. Jennings finally, to settle the mat
ter moved to adopt' the Crawford county
syrAera in nominating,. and let the peo
pia vote direct 'for eandidates.•
The Chairman stated ,the matter had
been dismissed at a meeting of the 'Ex
ecative Committee last fall, and a change
to the Crawford county system was voted
down. • • ' '
Several members of the wind districts
opposed the , motion of Mr.dennings, and
contended that -it would . be unfair to
them; and that' the County Committee
bad not the power to - ake the change.
The amendment-was finally withdrawn.
A:Tote was then taken on Mr. Bayne's
substitute, which resulted In its reJeo.
tion. ,
Mr. Taylor now pressed his amend.
nient,that, the nominations of Clerk of
Courts, Cmtiaty Treasurer and Register.
'be left with the J,ndiciall Convention.
Mr. Batchelor was opposed to such re
ference. He could , see no good reason
for separating the nominations in snob a
Mr. Moreland thought it would only
clog the Convention with business in
.which it properly had no authority.
The amendment elicited still llarther
discussion, the members generally appa
rently being opposed to such disorimina
tion. It was dually withdrawn.
The question then reclined on the
original resolution, as' offered by Mr.
Purviance, which - was adopted.
Mr. Negleymoved that the Chairmen
of the three Conventions be empowered
to 'appoint a committee of three from
each Convention to choose a County' Ex 7
°curly° Committee. Carried.
Mr. Schoyer offered a resolution relit
tive to the appointment of - A. L. Russell
to a foreign mission, protesting against
the same being charged to Allegheny
county, inasmuch as Mr. Russell has no‘
been a resident
.of the county for nine
years past, and • never Lad been except
for a short time. The resolution was
Mr. McKee: offered a resolution au
thorizing the holding of the primary
meetings throughout tho county be
tween the hours of font and seven P. N.
Mr; Bayne presented the following:
WILERNAI3, The Hon. Russell Errett
has resigned his position as State Sena
tor, therefore, be it
.Resoived, That the thanks of the nee
ple of Allegheny county are due to him
for the manly, honest and faithful Caurse
pursued by him as a Senator, and this
Committee deems it but. Just to give this
expression of Its opinion. -
Mr. Moreland sugges ted that the name
of Hon. Jas. L. Grabs should be added
to the resolution. -
Mr. l3aynopxplained that while he, as
much as ally meffiber of the Committee,
honored and admired Mr. Graham for
his course as a public 'officer,' yet he
thought it would be unnecessary to add
his name to the present res'bintiOn, inas
much as he was still a Senator. As Mr.
Ezrett had resigned the position, an& as.
he had been wantonly assailed by some
of the public prints, it was• no more than
just that the T.epublicans, of Allegheny
county. who had. sent him thElarrisburg
as their representative, should give -ex
presslon to their opinions respecting_the
manner in which he had discharge& his
duty. Were'Mr. Graham Ina similar po
sition, he would as readily offer a Sim-
ilar resolution. • •
Mess& Purvlatce, McKee. 'Dilsfirth
and . a number of others . coincided with
the rectiarka of Mr, ilajrne,' after which
Mr. Moreland Withdrew his, amendment.

ef, the , lastlttition-;-Lecatlon- of -the
College: •• •
Oar readers generally are aware of tbe'
fact of, the consolidation of Washington
College at Washington, 'and Jefferson
College at Canonaburg, Under the name
of Washington and Jefferson College,
which took place some three years since,
For a number of years past it was cut-.
dent that the two institutions, as
they were under the control of the same
church. and located in such close prox
imity to each other, could not be sustain
ed, and that one or the other
'must be abandoned, or else the
two consolidated in order to save them.
The consolidation had been in contem
plation for some time, when Rev. Dr.
Beatty made a donation of ;50,000 to the
Institutions on condition thatthey should
consolidate"and be conducted under. one
faculty, which was too groat prize to be
lost,and the consolidation was made, eon-
ditional that, - part of.; the institution
shOuld be kept at each place,tis follows:
The three high classes at Canonsburg
and the preparatory ,and soientitio de
, partments at Washington. Under this
arrangement the new "inititlition Tent
Into operatieni, but the trusteedloon dis ?
covered that a mistake • had been made,
And it could only be corrected , by making
the union full and complete by Web
'fishing the entire institution at one place.
The question then arose, si at what point
Alkali it be ?" and that, question bubo=
agitating not only the minds of the trus.
tees, , but of the Alumntantythe citizens
of the different, places as well, and for
the purpose of settlinglbis vexed ques
tion several meetings have been held,
but no conoludion auived at.
A special meeting was called and the
Trustees, to the number of twenty.afx,
sembled at the lecture room of the First
Preabyterian Chtirch, on Woodstreet
yesterday. Before taking up the specia l
business for which the meeting was
called, Dr. , Rdtvarchi, 'Pretddent < of the
institution,,tendered his resignation.
which 'was accepted: The matter of the
location of the College was then taken ,
up and thoroughly discussed, and at the
close of the afternoon session the vote
stood, sixteen for Washington and ten
for.Canonsburg, bat eel& requires a two
thirde vote to select the location there
was no choice. .
An evening session was held, and at
ten o'clock no, change had occurred, the
vote standing sixteen to °ten twat the
previous session.
• If the Trustees fail to agree we believe
the matter nt to be submitted to a Com;
mission, when it is probable ttie College,
will be removed to eomeother county.
Amon Dolan, a girl about eighteen
years of age, made information before
the Mayor, yesterday, charging her
father and. mother, Patrick - and Mary
Dolan, with aggravated assault and bat-
tors. The parties reside in the Twelfth
ward, in a-court off Penn street, opposite
the skating park, and it appears from
reports that their treatment of in h uman
has been of a most brutal and
character,-and that they- abused her to
such an extent that the neighbors inter
fered in the matter and brought the girl
to the Mayor's °dice where she was pre
vailed upon to ma ke the information;
She alleges that her father beat her over
the head with the heel of his boot, inflict
ing severe and painful wounds, and
on another occasion struck her on the
arm with an iron poker, and that her
brother had caught her by the hair ofthe
head and dragged her a considerable dis
tance. About a year since a similar
information was made against these par
ties by the daughter before Mayor Black
more, but the matter was settled upon
their •profaning to treat the: girl prop
erly. The girl alleges that since that
time they have abused her more than
formerly. and the neighborg corroborate
her, statement. -,Warrants were issued
for the arrest 'of the father and mother,
and a hearing will take place this morn
ing at ten o'clock, when the facts will be
made known. If the statement of the
girl be true, it is one of the most diabol
ical cases of inhumanity on record, and
the perppeetratdrs of the alleged outrages
should be punished to the fullest extent
of the law. ..
Monday night Hugh McLean stopped
at the grocery'store of George Hoffman,
in Mifflin township, and made a purchase,
receiving in "change" four dollars and
twenty-five cents. 'Zs was somewhat
under the influence of liquor at the time,
but seemed to be sufficiently sensible to
understand what he was about. Yester
day morning the inmates of Mr. Hoff
tuan's family were aroused about four
o'clock by a vigorous and continued
knocking at the front door. Investigat-•
ing, they discovered McLean outside,
and insisting upon admisaton, which be
ing granted, led him to further demand
his "change." Notwithstanding all the
averments of--Mr. Hoffman and his wife,
hetnaintalned he bad received none the
evening before and at length becoming
enraged, • attahed -.and abused them
in a shameful manner, winding up
by threatening to take their lives the
first opportunity. This is the substance
of statement, (of the truth of which we
know nothing,) 'made', before Alderman
I , lcMasters yesterday and upon which in
formations for assault and battery and
surety of the ,peace were made against
Mclean by Hoffman, and upen,which a
Warrant was issued. , , .
Arrested on Saspicion.

A Fifth Avenue Attraction.
Mr. Finn Mains has clearly demoustra-
Aed that desirable goods at cheap prices
Must attract Nosiness to any section of
the city. His presimtiocation has been
tried by several merchants, but they
failed to draw to theniseives a fair *Share
of trade% and it remained for Mr. M1L,128
to,prove that location is nothing, provided
the advantages offered to customers can
be surpassed broontemposary houses
any Where else intim city. At 105 Fifth
Avenue, he has but recently opened one
of the largest and finest assortments!' of
hats and cape ever",bl i t r yht, to the' city,
and marked down Ids ad so low as to
create a perfect furore n the market, and
to occasion Such a rash to his store room
as has seldom, or never been equalled.
Hts stock is se varied anffoaMplete, and
ids prices so lOw, that it astonishes the
old dealers to know bow he can manage
to successfully .;:transact the large and
constantly , increasing trade directed
We 'were present a day
or two ago, at' his ,tastefully arranged
salesrooms, and I 'alter a whole
multitude ,of customers` had been
satisfactorily supplied, ventured to
inquire how it was that such a large
line of trade had' been. secured at the
very start of busansses-in a now quarto .
Our response was that people were al
ways willing to -patronize- places where
their beat interests are' conserved, and
Fin Mains' acknowledging that fact, had
opened a tull stock of the beat goods in
the market, at prices so losiNas to pre
clude the ides of ' his securing any
large, profit ea hill Judea, Oar readers
are strongly recommended to favor this
establishment with a purchasing visit,.
as powbere else can they make a better
selection and _certainly nowhere else can
they find lower prices prevailing. Mr.
Mains is content to sell at small profits
and .thus secure a corresponding large
trade, and the'immense'pOpularity which
his new Fifth 'avenue store has obtained
Is the best evidence of the golden
success he is destined to obtain under
his generous system of business.
A First Clan Establishment.
Messrs. Hoffman dc• Hale; Np. 60 Flfth
avenue, under the Opera House, have
secured. one of the finest rooms in the
city for their musleal;establishment and
filled it with a large and varied stock of
Flamm, Organs, Melodeons and musical
goods generally, in the sale of which
they are now prepared to compete with
any other house of good reputation in the
vicinity. The firm are agents for some
of the standard pianos of the times and
warrant every instrument to be fully
equal to representations. In the line of
organs and melodeons they are especially
well supplied, and the visitor can have
no difficulty in making a selection, pro
vided a first class instrument is wanted.'
In smaller articles, such as violins, ac
cordeons, guitars, ttc., they have a com
plete assortment, all sizes, and all prices
to suit the tastes and pockets of all pur
chasers. They have also on hand a large
collection of sheet music, embracing the.
most popular publications of the day.
In short, everything usually kept in a
first clans music store may be found at
their establishment, 'a fact which pur
chasers would do well to remember in
distributing their patronage. •

-oot.Tat of an affray, in the 'Twelfth
betwi 4 ten John Powers and his brother
in-law;'john Morn!, which ' occurred on
Monday evening, the 12th inst. At the
. time of the occurrence no serious results
were anticipated, but it has dine proved
to be a very serious matter, as it resulted
In the death 'of Magee. It appears that
Magee came to the house of his brother-
In T law, Powers, where his wife was stay
ing. and demanded admittance. Powers,
refused to open the door and ordered
him away, knowing that he was drunk
and would probably create a disturbance
if admitted. Magee then broke the door
open and in doing so fell and broke two
of his ribs. As soon as he gained ad
mittance mi hence he made an attack upon Powers._
who, in looking for something with:which
to defend himself, got hold of a hatchet.
and as Magee advanced toward him
Struck him a blow on the head, causing
a slight' fracture of the skull. Powers
at once delivered himsblf up to the au
thorities and was placed in the lock-up,
but as no information :was made against
him. and the injured man it was thought
would recover, he was released. Magee'
remained at the house of.his ,brother-m
-law, where he 'was properly provided
with Medical attenchnee,,and on Monday
night' alxint twelve o'Clotac
Yesterday morning Powers was arrested
by officers (hippies ;and: Dreasier and
taken to the look-up to *wait , the result'
of the Coroner% investigation.
The Coroner 'wait notified of the affair
and held 1131133,quest on the' body, when

fotind the than lalxiiing under -Mamma
, tion of the lungs. He did not complain
of pain in his head; said it was from
several outs that he had got on it, hut
' that they would not amount to much;"
but said for God's sake to remove the_
pain in his aide. I asked hlinflow_this
happened: He repled that he had been
'drunk for a day Or two
,and , broke open
the door!-and fell. and Mitt his side. He
wanted to whip - his brother-in-law for
not letting him in, and did notbiame him
for anything he dene.
The cause 'of his death was from in
ternal Injuries received at the time of
dissipation previously.
Mrs. Eliza .Afages,—sworn—l am the
wife of deceasedV know nothing of the
matter further than when, I came down

Be that it was all his own fault.
