The Dissecting Rooms or Pittsburgh•..
How Medical Knowledge is Obtained.
In view of certain circumstances of late
occurrence, it will not much surprise our
readers to announce that here. in this
city of magnificent boundaries, a first
class and well-kept dissecting house Jain
fall tide of operation. affording the young
lances of the medical profession ample
opportunity to acquaint themselvesthor.
oughly with the secrets wrapped up and
hidden in the human form. It is perhaps
eminently proper that such schools
should exist, for physicians cannot too
well acquaint themselves with' the secrets
ofanatomy taidPikysiology. Manikins,no
matter how cleverly made do not fill the
bill of requirement and the real flesh;
blood and boned are necessary for the
successful attainment of correct medical
and surgical knowledge. Hence, in
noting the discovery we have made, we
do not pretend to find fault with the fol
lowers of science for maintaining their
well ordered morgue. We know the
announcement of the fact of a dissecting
school being in operation here Will chill
the blood of many timid persons, but to
allay all needless alarm, it is
well enough to say that the great majori
ty of the subjects for the knife are
brought hither from other places,and we
are confidently assured that body snatch
ing is condemned and avoided. The
bodies are washed, prepared and packed
in other localities by corresponding
members of the :Skull and Cross-bone
Club, and are forwarded here as ordi
nary,merchandise, and In a' circuitous
manner of delivery from one place to
another, finally- reach the table of the
dissecting room, to be disposed of accord
te the best de rules of .
It ing
is hardly necese fi ary ned
to state the lscienceoca
tion of the dissecting rooms to our med
ical readers, but ;to the outside corn.
munity from whom they are veiled in
close secrecy, we, might hint that they
are located on one : of our most traveled
thoroughtares, and hundreds pass
the old dingy, dirty house, shut
tered closely from week to week,
every hour of the day, and
we daresay never, imagine how many
pounds of decayed human flesh and how
many bushels of human skulls and
bones are bleaching within - the anti
quated walls. The operations are all
carried on after night, and when a
healthy, first class corpse is obtained
there is generally very large attendance
of physicians and medical students to
participate in the guastly entertainment.
Ordinarily the attendance at "consulta
tion" is' not huge; and sometimes the
dissecting is left to young, bungling stu
dents, who revel in-finding out for them-
Aelves, in their own rude way, secrets of
human organism. So long 'as the
room are conducted so well and the sub
jects secured elsewhere, we presume no
opposition can be made to the presence
of the death house in our midst, and, in
deed, for the good of science none should
be made.
Committee on Surveys.
At a special meeting of the City Conn.
oil Committee on Surveys, Saturday, im
portant matters concerning the new city
districts were considered, and it was de
cided to make a tour of inspection on
Saturday next. They will look at the
proposed locations of the route of Forbes
street beyond Braay street, the Pnckety
road, Shady lane and other points to
which their attention has been invited.
In all matters concerning the laying out
of the streets in the new districts, it is
the wish of the Committee to proceed
with as much haste as is consistent with
the public good. Careful examinations
will be ma&e, and all petitions and re
monstrances will be given due consider
ation. The matter of the location of
Ridge street,. referred back, was recOP
iddered, and the former action, resolv
ing to have the street made straight, was
confirmed. They decided to straighte%
St. Marys avenue, Lawrenceville, and or
dered the fixing of grades of Hazlett and
Liberty streets , and Denney's alley, in
the Sixteenth ward.
The Alleged outrage.
The parties arrested Sunday evening,
charged on oath of Ellen Dawson with
rape, an account of which we published
yesterday; had a hearing before his
Honor, Mayor Brush, yesterday at two
o'clock, which resulted in their being
'held to bail in the snm of one thousand
'dollars each, for their appearance at
court, in default of which they were
committed to jail. The bar keeper re
ferred to in .-a .pr evious account of the
'affair was also arrested, but after a
hearing was discharged, there being no
evidence implicating him in the outrage.
A warrant was issued for Donavan, the
proprietor of the house wherein the

The Third Ward Square Of the :All*.
gheny Diamond, for a numbs"'
past hail attriietedr the "attenttoii of ttie+
City Fathers, who at sundry times made
spasmodic attempts at agreeing upon a
plan to render it somewhat more pleasing
to the eye. and profitable to the city ex
chequer. Thus far, however, all efforts
have proved abortive, and there it ilea
an unsightly, unimproved and unprofit
able but exceedingly valuable piece of
land right in the heart and centre of the
business and traffic of the city. Had it
been pioperly improved two or three
years ago by this time all the funds ex
pended would have been doubly re
turned, and the city considerably richer
in her yearly revenue. The three other
squares have returned in this manner,'
and why should not this one?
The matter'has again been brought be
fore the "Fathers," and this time it is to
be hoped with some show of action. At
the last meeting of Councils a committee
was appointed to consider and report as
soon as possible, a plan for thei improve
ment. Fortunately the committee is
composed of some of the most progres
sive and energetic business men of the
body, and the resut ofeir delibera
tions will doubtless l ead
lead t ome dottlidve"
measures being taken to beautify and I
render profitable theuneightly waste.
A meeting of the \ committee was
held last night, and although we have
not been officially informedof any au
thorized plan, yet the, e seems to be one,
or rather-the germ of one, which will re
ceive the sanction of the committee and
be recommended to Councils. It con
templates the erection of a block of
stores, three or four stories in bight, ex
tending around the four sides of the
square, and of a sufficient depth to form
ample store-rooms. The central portion
of the second and third stories may be
built as a public hall, entrance to it be
ing upon each of the four aides, by the
ascent of broad flights of stairs,
from the several streets, The plan
may be somewhat modified so that part
of the structure can be used to accommo
date the wants of the market folks, and
the rest be rented out as store rooms
and offices, but either way it could hard
ly fail to be an exceedingly remunera
tive investment. Judging from the man
ner in which the places in the market
house now built were taken up, it is cal
culated that the premium alone for the
places in the new building would amount
to nearly half the oust of its construction,
while the yearly rental would reimburse
in one year the expense incurred. These
estimates may be somewhat extravagant,
but they are not to far above the mark
as they at first glance may seem, at least
some of the shrewdest business men'
and - financiers in the city seem to think.
The new building, it is thought, can be
erected in a plain but neat and substan
tial manner, of brick, for one hundred
thousand dollars. Of course this is only
the general idea of the plan, but it seems
evident, treat the manner in which the
affair is being oonducted, that something
will be done this time. The Committee
can only recommend, which in quite
certain to be done. It is the province of
Councils to direct, which now seems one
of the certainties.
A Villainous Carpet Bagger.
Yesterday afternoon a meg German
ti c
girl arrived in Pi burgh from her
native land, In quest f a brother-in-law.
She stopped at a boar ng house to which
place she had been dir ted to get dinner.
At the table, eating wi h her, was a man
who soon Introduced mall, and finally
learned her ,destinati c r Her brother
in-law, he said, reside irt Allegheny, he
know him and would conduct her to his
home. Rejoiced being released,
as she supposed fr m any further
trouble, she accepted the kind strati
stranger's offer, and pr eeded with him
to the depot for her gage, only a ca.-
pet sack, but which ntained the ma
jority of her earthly 'd our includ
ing eighty dollars gold. The two
started away from th depot chatting
pleasantly, and bad pniceeded but about
four or fi ve squares wen the stranger.
carrying the carpet big disappeared in
an alley and was lost to view. His icom
panion waited some ime for hut reap
pearance, but fi nally to up the search
and endeavored to find her relative her
self, in which she nufo tunately proved
unsuccessful. Alone in a strange
city, in a strange land, and among
a people who for the most part were
of a different nature to her. it
is no wonder she sat down and gave vent
to her feelings in a passionate flood of
tears. In this distressed condition she
was discovered by one of the kind
hearted countryman who benevolently
offered her a temporary home. The
name of her-brother-In-law is Tames Har
ris, who resides, she says, according to
her directions. somewhere in Allegheny
city. If this paragraph should meet his
eye be ow nod a clue to his -relative by
calling at thit Allegheny Mayor's office.

OPERA HOUSE.—Humpty Dumpty, the
grand and amusing fiantomlme, was pre-
Bented for the first time last night before
a Pittsburgh audience—and such an au_
dience it was too I Every seat from pit
to dome was occupied and the aisles and
lobbies were uncomfortably crowded.
The utmost satisfaction was manifested
by everybody present, and an almost
continual roar of applause and burst of
ringing laughter assured the success of
the piece. The ballet was no secondary
part of the attraction, as it was presented
in a manner much less objectionable
than we ever, before noticed. Grace,
youth. end beauty rather than muscular
development appear to have been there
quirements in making up the troupe.
The pantamime abounds in rich and en
joyable points, - and the veriest-.cynic
could not refrain from laughing himself
almost to ' death If present at, the
entertainment. To-morrow afternoon
Humpty Dumpty will be offered for la
dies and the , little folks. To-night it will
again be presented. Do not fail to put in
an appearance while it retains possession
of the boards at the Opera House.
Tan ACADBMT.—On our seventh page
we publish the programme for the read
ing entertainment to be furnished our
lecture-going community by the distin
guished actress laiss,Augusta L. Dargon.
It will be observed that It embraces
pleaiing gems of literature and some of
the most difficult to render, but we are
confident the gifted lady will prove equal
to the Leek. she has assigned herself. The
reedit*, will take place on Thursday
night, and there will be no reserved seats.
etre was crowded again last night. The
attractions are greater than the public
can withstand, and the entertainments
are of a highly , satisfactory character,
,hence the crowded houses.
Homicide at stenbenville.
Sattirday evening of last week, ak Sten
benville; 0., James Coulson and John
McCalfery, employed at the Jefferson
rolling mill, renewed an old quarrel, hav
ing encountered each other in a saloon.
McCaMiry, it la alleged, called Coulson a
"coward," used other abusive language.
and finally slapped him with . his open
hand on the mouth. Coulson,a much
smaller man than McCaffery, id not at
tempt to--resent the , indignities heaped
upon him, and deemed afraid to do so.
After they had been in the saloon about
an hour MoCaffery,went out. He was
followed and Overtaken by Coulstui who, knife,
is alleged, attacked him with . a
inflicting a deep :cat in his abdomen,
through which the bowels protruded.
Coulson then ran away. McCaffery, was
conveyed to his residence, •and died
in about four,hours afterward. , On Bun-
I dari3Ohlson !surrendered , himself to the
authorities, and was oommittect to jail to
await the result of the inquest. • The de ,
!ceased was about twenty-eight years of
age, and married. Coulson la about thir
atid is alao married. •

- Without a ' , zero" to stari. , from; or a
"standard" from calculate the
deviations, the principle and praitice of
medicine, in fact` the principles of any
art or science, cannot be satisfactorily'
elucidated or properly understood.
The art and science of medicine is
divided into several special departments,
each having their standard principles,
which form the batds for their scientific
elucidations. .
Every particular ,part or the human
body has had itS average natural proper
ties, constittients, quantities, dEr»,
dnced upon scientific principles to a
standard of nearly definite proportions
in health.,
This serves for , the more correct eluci
dation of disease ;by comparison and
measurement of the deviations from the
healthy standard. Thus the average
proportionate constituents of the blood
in health. being reduced to a standard,
any considerable deviation from this
standard quality a ; of the blood is disease.
,-, The same in t e urinary excretion; the
average natur proportionate constitu
ents of the urine in health form the
standard. any considerable deviation
froni which basii; - either in proportion or
constituent% exhibits disease.
This latter id a practical fact which we
are daily demonstrating at our office,
To. 182 Grant street; and 'which any one
can have tested eto their, entire satisfac
tion, by sending a standard specimen
(morning urine) 'for scientific analysis
and examination.
If we fail to detect the "morbid condi
tions," if any; or to determine the nature
of the disease, or the organs affected, as
the lungs, liver, stomach, brain, kidneys,
womb, &c., there shall be no charge
Bestir° to give the age of the patient
atthe same time; as the urine varies in
proportionate constituents in the differ
entagturof'infiinc3i, Childhood, manhood
and old age.
The name and residence of each patient
should be given also, in order 'to avoid
confusion of cases where medicines are
taken. 1. Or nuns, AIL 1).
lat'Ame time since we mentioned the •
cumatance of a rather serious charge
having been made before snap town Al
derman against a gay dusky Lothario, by
a young.whito girl employed' as cham
bermaid at the Union Depot Hotel. The
matterwas compromised at the time, and
the charge - withdrawn. Since then a
wedding has taken' place between the
parties, but how, or when, or where, is
one of the mysteries. The only really
tangible:fact, known is the announcement,
made yesterday, by the parties interested
that the mysterious ceremony had
been performed .some time since—aix
months, according to thlibridel, and six
weeks, according to the groom. That
they have, however, started out in the
voyage of life tegedier seems to be one
of the certainties r as much so as the fact
that when the announcement was made
it had the effect of. procuring for them
both a summary dismissal from employ
ment. And so the matter rests at pre&
ent. igAlrkwell that ends well."
Monday morning about eight o'clock
Mrs. Eminerson died vary suddenly ot.
the St. Charles Hotel, in this city. She
, had been stopping at the hotel fbr somo
time, with her husband, Mr. R. H. Em
meson, oitmercbant, and two children.
Recently Mrs. E. had a severe fall from a
,carriage, and. was quite ill in come
,quince, although nothing of a serious
nature was apprehended. At the time
stated she was beard -to tall for a servant,
who hastened to her bedside and found
her In the agonies of death. She died
very suddenly,.and before her husband
reached the room. Mr. Emmerson is"
from Massachusetts, and Mrs. E. from
Troy, N. Y. The body of Mrs. E. will be
taken to her friends in New York. Mr.
E. is left with two little girls aged res
pectively two and four years.
Yesterday morning about three o'clock
one of the Allegheny night watchmen,
while passing in the • vicinity of Beaver
street and North alley, Second ward, ob
served a man in the cellar of-a dwelling
industriously endeavoring to effect an
entrance to the house. Finding himself
noticed, the burglar quit work, and
.scrabling out of his subterranean guar
Am mode away as _fast as a pair of ex
ceedingly nimble feet could carry him,
far out distancing the guardian of the
law, who attempted his arrest. Saban
-guent investigation made the fact evi
-tient that the fellow had just commenced
work when discovered, and. come
quentlyi. had made no heldway. The
watchman could not identify him again.
