We stated a few days ago that a special
committee appointed by the Allegheny
Councils, to consider the best method of
improving the Third Ward Diamond
Square, had decided to recommend
Councils the adoption of a plan
for the erection of a building com
bining a public hall and a large
block of storerooms for rental. Since
the mottling of the committee, the
subject has attracted considerable at
-tension and so far as has been ascertained
meets with general favor. The practica
bility of the plan and the immense benefit
to the city to be derived therefrom, iteems
to be patent to all . and carry their
own recommendations. Since the mat
ter has be& agitated, however, a
new feature has been developed,
which may possibly result in Its
total defeat. It is contended by some
that according to the city charter none
of the Diamond squares can be appro.
priated for any purpose other than own
pation for markets or buildings to be
used exclusively by the City authorities.
If this be the proper construction of the
law, then, to carry out the plan proposed
would be out of the question, unless
special legislation could be btained.
The Committee, however, have decided
upon recommending the project and thus
bringing it before Uouncil, when doubt
less a full investigation will be made.
If this plan be not adopted, some other
should, and the more quickly it is de
cided upon the more the interests of the
city will be advanced. The ground In
question is too :Valuable to be allowed
to lie in its present conditicin. If the
city needs money, let her reach out a
hand in this direction and get It.
Jelin Roxbury was once tho fortunate
possessor of a coat, a black broadcloth
article, but yesterday he mourned its
loss. R seems that John's financial ar
rangements, somehow , became derang ,
and to relieve himself from the emb r

' loan, by .1 leaving the coat as I
lateral. The collateral, however, w a

realize by this methcd was two dolla4l.
At this moment a friend, Miss Mary

situation of affairs proposed to take the
matter in hand, feeling confident sfie
could succeed better than John. She
took the coat, and whether her anticipa

could learn, as, according to his state

his way ever since. Fearing the loss of
his garment, he lodged information
against Mary, before Alderman Lynch,
for larceny as bailee, upon which a war

We are more than satisfied, from per

the caption which heads the column;
“Suceess bespeaks iferit," is not an empty
boast. Its success is not of that false
and illusory kind which consists in a
rapid and abnormal groWth of its busi

and fancy schemes of insurance, by which
the creduluni are led to believe that its
benefits can be enjoyed without paying
the inevitable cost which attends every
The Mutual Benefit had its inception
in the idea of furnishing' to all who
might desire it, Life Insurance with per
fect safety at the minimum cost. This
idea led to its organization on the strictly
mutual plan, and has steadily controlled

when it has the proud distinction of a
smaller ratio of expense to income than
that of any other company on the con
tinent, considerably less Indeed than
one-half of the average of all others.

A Model Amours Establhhment.-
Where to Purehise Home. Made Fur
niture at Reasonable Prices.
It always affords us much pleasure to
record the business success of gentlemen
who start on nothing but strong Will, de
termination and good habits to battle
their • way forward to front rank and
prominent position in the line of busi
ness which they have adopted. Over
thirty years ago, Mr. C. G. Hammer
came to our city, and securing a.
plaCe as a furnished and thoroughly
skilled mechanic in a leading furniture
making establishment, steadily worked
himself up to a leading place in the trade,
and to-day, dating back his career to au
humble beginning, finds himself , senior
partner, and the head or one of the lar
gest and most important furniture houses
of the West. He and his two sons, Rich
ard H. Hammer anti RObert E. Hammer,
all practical and, experienced Cabinet
matters, and industrious and attentive
workmen, have formed a partner
ship trinity which must secure
for their house a prominence far
beyond the reach of cotemporary
establishments. In their own elegant
and palatial house, N 0.48 Seventh ave
nue, they have just opened under the
name of C. (.'Hammer dr Sons, a furni
ture emporium which in point of true
elegance, finish and commodiousness is
unsurpassed by any in Vie country. The
building is one of the - architectural beau
ties of the city, and by its flne com
manding appearance and beautiful finish
attracts universal attention. But the
rich finishing, the broad and amide sales
rooms are matters of little consequence
to the purchaser so long as the stock
is fully up to the requirements of the
day. The first floor room is devoted to
sample purposes, where the most ele
gant, durable and best made furniture for
ibr parlor, dining room, chamber,
lary, or office, a to be found all
mad by hand, as thi f s firm entirely ,
dardc machinery in order to secure , per
fection in all their manufactures.
The double upper stories, divided
by massive arches, are devoted to
the display of furniture in gene
ral, and is approached by a broad
well lighted and airy stairway - leading
from a commodious hall at the lower
side of the entrance of the main isidel
room. The Arrniture manufactured by
the firm is of the very beat quality, plain,
elegant and rich; according to the tastes
of the purchaser, and Is sold at as reas
onable prices as can elsewhere be l'ob
tained, either in the East or this city:
The factory of the firm has just been
finished, and will compare in every de
partment with any in this neighborhood.
None brit the most skilful and expo
rienced mechanics are employed and all
work is warranted to afford satisfaction.
A. foreman having over a quarter of a
century of experience is id charge of: the
factory, and be personally superintends
and inspects every article previous
to its leaving the
nc shop, *0 ;
ensure the continuae of tae highr ep optation the firm enjoys. We bespeak 'for
this house a large share of trade and cor
dially recommend the firm to the confi
dence and patronage of our readers,
knowing Omni to be fair dealing and
honorable business gentlemen in every
way worthy support and patronage. -
Steam-Engines, Machinery and Castings,
and Wnere to Leave Your Order*.
We take pleasure in_ calling the atten
tion of our readers to the manufacturing .
establishment Of Messrs, Hugh M. Bole
& Co., steam engine blinders, foundcrs
and machinists. Their shop is located
on the bank of the Allegheny river, near
the Point, Pittsburgh, Pa. Their repu
tation for making rirst class steam en-a
glees and machinery is second to node,
and wo are assured, by parties whO have
used their new oil well engines * that they
are unsurpassed in quality of workman
ship and cheapness. Their heavy .en
gines, for riot and saw mills, are modeLs
of strength and style of finish. Parties
wanting an engine cannot be better
suited, we think, anywhere, and what Is
very desirable to a customer Is that they
can be Shown In a few minutes an eng!ne
running of their manufacture of aim*
every size, from a ton horse power to a
hundred horse power. Messrs. Bole &
Co. have now several contrasts for power-
ful engines, one of which is designed for
Messrs. Archibald, Kellg & Co., of
Sharpsburg, who are erecting, drat clais
saw mill in that thriving village, and
are putting In a sixty horse power en
gine to run their machinery: Again, we
say to the readers of the Gazern, visit
the Industrial Machine Works of Messrs.
H. M. Bole& Co. should you.want agood I
engine, and we will stake our reputatill
on yoThr getting such at a fair price.
In addition to the manufacture of
steam engines and a variety of other
machinery too numerous to mention,
their fancy castings, made at the Thir d
Avenue Foundry, near Market street'-
are worthy of special notice. Thermally`
beautiful fences and ornamental work;
erected by Messrs. Cochran itt' Bros., -are
tho best advertisements of , the work
made at this foundry.
The firm of Messrs. Bole & Co. are de
serving of patronage, and Nye cheerfully
recommend all the branches of their,
manufacture as worthy of inspection,'
and as challenging comparison with the;
products of the best shops east or west.
*he Gets Them.
Considereble inquiry has been made
recently relative to the shipment of a
large lot of cigars to Washington City,
which, it is presumed, were intended for
the use of the President. We cannot say
to whom the segars were assigned or for
whom they were intended, but we do
know that President Grant cannot get a
better aeuar than can, be obtained at 45
Hand street, at the wholesale and retail
segar and tobacco mart of Jno. Megraw.
Mr. Megraw has on hand'one of the larg
est and best stooks of tobacco and segars
to be found in the city, including all the
best brands of both articles. He also .
deals in pipes, tobacco pouches, segar
cases, and, in fact, 'everything usually
found in a first °lists tobacco house.
At the popular "Corner_
Store" of Richard Deakers, Fifth avenue

A. D. McKee, Esq., has now the sole
control and management of the large
establiihment of J. W. Barker dr Co., 59
Market street. We know of no one bet
ter qualified for the honorable and re
sponsible position. Mr. McKee has'been
well known in this city for about twenty
years as a gentleman of excellent taste
and superior business qualifications.
His whole life has been devoted to the
single branch of dry goods, and no one
Understands it better. He is polite and
accommodating to all, however limited
or extensive their. purchases, and there.
fore commands a very large patronage.
It is thought by some that the opening
of another store on St. Clair street,
which will take place in about two
weeks, will impose too heavy a task
upon him. But we know, from personal
acquaintance, that he is fully competent,
as he is a gentleman of, system, to man
age both establishments well.. Mr. J. W.
Barker, Jr., Is the eastern purchaser for
the house. As an accomplished mer
chant and gentleman Mr. Barker has no
superiors. They are both the right men
to tte right place.
Such is the name giyen to one of the
best conducted and most orderly saloons
and restaurants of the'city. The "Ruby"
is located at N 0.19 Smithfield street, and
is presided over by. Mr. John M. Welsh,
proprietor, a gentleman who conducts
his business so cleverly, and with so
much judguient and precision as to en
title him to the rank of prince among
caterers. The saloon is one of the most
eleant and best appointed in the y
furnished in splendid etyle and very citat
tractive. The bar always 'rejoices in a
selection of wines and liquors which can
not be equaled by rival houses. Purity
of the drinks is the first consideration,
and poisoned drugs dealt at the bars of
so many houses in the name of liquors
are discarded entirely by the host, who
pays good round prices for his stock,
and keeps none but the best and purest
for his patrons. The restaurant depart.
ment is ably managed, and a good meal
served up at a few minutes notice and in
the highest style of art is always forth
coming at most reakonable rates. We
commend the "Ruby" as the model con
ducted saloon of the city, and any of
our readers passing that way and desir
ing to call enywhere, should not forget
the genial, courteous and obliging host,
Mr. Welsh, wk) is always presiding with
grace and dignity over his popular and
first class , restaurant and saloon.
The Contlitental Saloon. •
• The high reputation Holtzheimtr's Con
' tinental dining saloon has always sus
tained, and the extensive patronage it
receives is the strongest evidence of its
superiority as a restaurant. We . speak
advisedly, and know whereof we speak
when we say that the Continental dining
saloon is not surpassed in any respect by .
any establishment of the character in the
city , The tables are always supplied
with the beat tho market affords; the
rooms are kept clean and neat, and every
thing is in the most perfect order. Re
member the Continental is on Fifth ave

to have Munson's Copper Tubular Light
ning Rod with Spiral Flanges, erected on
'the Central School building; being con
'vinced, since the partial destruction of
that edifice by lightning, that the iron
rod now attached thereto is insufficient.
Munson's Rod will be put up forthwith.
