head; nine shots went through: aimed for
the temple.and, most of the shots went
below the' hmd. There were twenty-six
shot in a space of twenty-two inches on
the -door, twenty-two inches from the
centre; saw no shot that wont deep; only
three penetrated the door so as to stick
in it, There were a good many on
thealoor. The second shot charged as
before and held the pistol close to the

it, and scattered from crown to chin.
A third .shot, with the same charge,
fired six feet from the glass; no
shot struck the head. The door was
twenty-five feet back from the pistol.
The shot had struck far and wide, and
none had penetrated the "door. The first

An incident occurred at the Mayor's
office, last night, slightly out of the usual
routine of business transacted there.
Tuesday evening Miss •Ann Elizabeth
Morgan, a young girl residing in East
Liberty, made information before the
Mayor, ,charging Ulysses Stewlrt with
seduction. She stated that she was only
sixteen years of age, and that she had
been seduced by Stewart under a promise
of marriage, and was the mother of a
child. She stated further that Stewart
had requested her to meet him at_Oak
* land at eight o'clock with the child.
Officers McCready and Long, to whom
the warrant was given, prevailed upon
the girl to keep her appointment with
her seducer, and they accompanied her
and arrested him. it. was brought to
the lockup and declined a hearibg, stat
ing that he would enter bail for Court.
Yesterday afternoon, however, he chaeg
ed his mind and demanded a hearing,
after the girl had returneoo East Lib.

ker. Last evening he again changed
his _resolution, and concluded to make
[-good his promises to the girl, and she
was accordingly sent" for and Mayor

Probably Fatal Aec
Yesterday morning an accident -- r
on the Cleveland do Pittsburgh rail
road, near Jack's Run, which will probe
bly result in the death of a behtrnian,
whose name is unknown. Between ten
and eleven o'clock, as the express train
(No. 20) on the Cleveland road, coming
east, approached the point named, the
engineer noticed a man walking on the
track, whereupon he sounded the alarm
whistle, and the man stepped off the
track toOne side, and the train proceed
ed until it was within twenty or thirty
feet of him, when lie again step
ped on the track immediately
in front of the engine, and before
the engineer had time to- sound the
whistle the train hid struck him, knock
ed him down and passed over his legs
.and one arm. The train- was stopped
and the wounded man, who was still
living but insensible, was placed in a
baggage car and taken to the Allegheny
Depot, where he was left in charge of the
depot master. Dr. Biacham was imme
diately notified and saw the patient with
in twenty minutes from the time the acci
dent occurred, and decided that the in
jured limbs would have to be amputated.
The left leg was almost severed immedi
ate above the ankle joint;
_the bones in
the right leg were crushed from
a short distance below the knee joint to
the foot, and the left arm was crushed
and brokin at the elbow. The unfortu
nate man, being still insensible, was re
trieved to the basement or cellar under
the , •May Flower" saloon, on. Federal
street, opposite the depot, where he re
mained until half past six ; o'clock.. At
which time, Mayor. Drum, having heard
of the occurrence, sent a number of his
officers and had theinjured man removed
to the Mayor's office. He searched for
the city physician, but. Idling to find
him he wadi Dr. Suchanrian, not .know
ing that belied been called in the case.
The Doctor, a appear% had been endeav
oring to find a suitable plaee for his pa.
.tient,hut failed, BR none of the hotels
would agree to take him in, because he
"was poor, we presume. Drs. Buchannan
and *islet, we learn, amputated Abe
limbs of the injured man last night, but
it is hardlY prObable that he will reclover,
as it is thought he has received some in.
ternal injuries. will be removed to
the city poor house to-day if he is able.

Their Bitters are said to be the finest
tonic and most agreeable stimulant for
the ,weak and delicate, of any Bitters
heretofore in use. They havetbeen used
in many localities with the most gratify
ing results, and are highly recommended
byp Physicians . for the , preventive of
Foyers, Fever and Ague, and all malari
oui3 diseases. They create a healthy ap
petite, and strengthen the whole system.
We,are glad to have them introduced in
this section, and hope they will take the
place of all the poisonous compounds
heretofore palmed off on the invalid as .
Bitters. From what we have beard said
of them by those who ought to know, we
are satisfied that a fair trial will convincer
all that they are as represented—a supe
rior medical preparation. They are sold
by all Druggists. " '
