Agreeably to announcement, the Sur vey Committee of City Councils met on Saturday morning, at nine o'clock shlirp, at the Oakland waiting rooms of the East . Liberty and Oakland •Passenger Railway, for' the purpose of going going over the grounds of the new districts to se 'lect and lay out new streets and avenues, asked for by petitions addressed to the body they represent, and by which refer red to them. There were present Messrs. R. G. Herron, Dr. A. IL Gross, F. Tor rence, T. J. Craig, Sohn MoMasters, Frank P. Case, Thomas P. Houston and the Chairman; John Chialett, Jr. The Committee were accompanied .by the Civil Engineer, W. H. Kennedy, who has charge of the City Survey Corps, and Messrs. Hallman and Murdock, of Se lect Council, and a 'number ; of property holders of the new wards. ' The whole day was expended in visiting the woods and wilds, plains and hills, streets, al- . lays, lanes and roads of the new districts, and the occasion, although full of down right labor and hard work, was as plea sant and enjoyable as ,a May picnic or pleasure excursion. The day was beau tiful, being balmy and cool, with a bright sun and clear sky overhead. FORBES STREET. " The first important question to be deci ded upon was a proposed changing of the original plan of the great sixty foot rival of Fifth avenue, which according to the map was to strike and unite with it at a point near Dithridge street. The Com mittee went over the ground, struck bee-lines in the air with their optics, and after mature deliberation and full ex. change of thoughts concluded to change the location so as to have Forbes street run independently of Filth avenue, and nearly parallel with it, from what was formerly known as East Pittsburgh, by a nearly straight line through the estate of the late Thomas Little, Esq., and from thence on eaatwardly towards Wilkins.. burg, in the . , rear of the estates of Faber, Howe, Berry, and others. At Little's place there is a ravine of considerable depth which will have to be bridged, but the grades on both sides are favorable to the easy- erection of such a structure. After brossing the bridge a slightly in clined plane is reached, but the grade will be hardly as heavy as that on Sixth avenue, between Smithfield and Grant streets. This grade la only about one thousand feet in length, when an open table land is reached, which con tinues to the end of the read, as broad, smooth and level as the face.f a fiat-iron. This change, any one whb has knowl edge of the topography of,the place will admit, was a wise and judicious one. It opens a broad and valuable strip of terri tory which has no outlet save private al leys and lanes. The action, of the Com mittee at least doubled the value of miles of territory thus afforaed outlet by a broad and proud avenue. The. Commit mittee were unanimous in their decision, and we presume no objection cantor will be made to the proposed change by Councils. Ity.one drunken lay. Business in specially on Sun hed a great Ina- After deciding on this important busi- ness the Committee were invited to the elegant residence of Mr. Lloyd, to inspect a patent pump, a St. Louis manufacture, which had won much credit to our country while on exhibition in Paris at the Great Exposition . The pump is small in height, has a bread base and ta pera to a genteel point. The cap for ex cruding air is highly ornamented in silver, and is held firmly to its place by delicate wire cords. When wanted to be used the wires are drawn aside and the air forcing ita way downwards creates a pressure upon the outside of the pump, which is already chanced, and the fluid flows freely. The Committee took pleas uie in drinking the water, several times, from so elegant a pump, and were so enraptured with the pretty piece of American manufacture that . we heard conniseura in other. matters, pass judgment even on the water, using such epicurean adjectives as HUI; ar4mant," "highly effervescent," •sdiuretic and strengthening," " agreeable sweetness," "full Savor," “delightful anima," and “endearing boquet. ' These pumps cost rather heavy but all well ordered families should have thermin--..the wine cellar. A vote of thanks was passed to Mr. Lloyd for the generous use of his model pumps. and the Committee, re freshened, proceeded to inspect the ground for A NEW STREET. They decided to run a street parallel with Cralg street from Forbes to Alla u pp e B ia street. It will run quite close to enefield church but take In none of is property. When opened it will be sixty feet in width and will .prove one of the finest avenues of that portion - of the city. It will cross at nearly right angles with Fifth and Centre avenues. - - • WIDENINO OF SHADY LANE. Shady Lane was next visited. The committee decided to make it from a forty-foot street, which it now is, a sixty-foot street, running between Fifth Avenue and the Greensburg pike. Sev eral objectionable .angles and serpentine turns were taken out of the line, and with the improvements decided upon, the avenue will merge into a delightful road, one which must largely enhance the value of the property through which it passes. The change in the width will entail little or no hardship on Private into :Tata Alto: they were through with their labors in this direction, the Committee were cordially invited to the picturesque residence of our public spirited fellow citizen, Frank Sellers, Esq., for dinner— an invitation which wasreacilly accepted, and the clever host can rest assured that his guests felt duly grateful for the hospitable reception at his hands, all the more appreciated since the action of widening the lane Into an avenue look more than an acre of very valuabldrpro petty for public purposes, off the real estate of Mr. Sellers, who willingly ac quiesced to the hardship entailed. ANOTHER NEW ROAD. The Committee next vted a private lane at the toll gate or top of the hill, and decided to open It into a fifty foot street, through from the Pike to the Prankstown road. This will not inter fere with property to any extent and will secure a much needed new avenue, a ffordinaontlet to a large number of real estate owners. THE PUCKETT ltatitr. • The d Puck deety road was next visited. It wax ecid to take out several ug angles and to make It from thirty-thre ly e feet to a fifty foot avenue. Its extension - was also decided upon through to the Allegheny river, but that will hardly take place for many years. After accomplishing this much, the Committee adjourned and reaceed their homes about six o'clock. The Surveyor will at on go to work with his well organized corps to lay oat the lines de cided upon. Disorderly.—Theodore Paul alleged be fore Justice Amnion, orßirminghatn, on Saturday, that Christian Neyergall, in direct contradiction to his name, had been acting in a yery disorderly manner. much to the disgust and annoyance of the neighborhcard in_ which he resides. Christian was arrested, and in default of a ten dollar Sue was committed toy ail for ten days. , ~~ . NEW STREETS. A III)DP.L PtllitP g-; • PIT! 1111161 'GAM* : /MOAT, I , AY 10, 11369. IRE COI7RTB.

The dividing line as proposed, will start at the Westmoreland county line, near the house of john Ludwick, and running thence - by the road, near Jas. Black, Sr., - to the Monongahela river above Saltsburg. The Court ordered the petition to be tiled, and appointed Messrs. P. Clugston, Tnos. McMesters and Thos. Penney, Commissioners, to inquire into the matter and repgrt.• , • A Novel Electrical Performance, To•day the last rail connectiog_the Union Pacific and Central Pacific Rail roads will be' laid, and thus finish the grandest eaterprise of the century—that of binding with an unbroken iron band the Atlantic to the Pacific ocean. A die tinguished genii man ' connected with the enterprise will drive down the last spike. With every atreke of the ham mer driven home, a signai wire, attached to the rail, will convey the sound into all parts of the country over the Western Union Telegraph wires. 'I be arrange ments for this city are to let the current started run into the instrument at the Fire Alarm Telegraph office, and from thence to the great bell. Thus, as the click of the hammer striking the spike is heard on the spot where the connec tion is being Made, over two thousand miles from here west, the same moment the heavy toned bell will ring out a te deum from the Court House tower. The very Instant the stroke is given in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, the peal of the bell'will ho heard resounding in Pittsburgh. _ Our citizens will be pre pared for the algnala, andsiot be troubled to account for the unusual sounding of the bell, and unless the firemen want a run of several thousand miles to the 'place from whew* the signals come, they will tinheed the alarm. The bell wilt be struck at about eight minutes past two o'clock this afternoon, if the signal be given promptly at noon by Salt Lake City time, as Pittsburgh time is two hours and eight minutes faster. To be Reorganized. The Friendship Hose Company of Al legheriy is to be reorganized. Our readers will remember the difficulty which resulted in the disbandment of the Company a few weeks since, by the Com mittee on Fire Engines and HMes of the City Councils. On Saturday the prelimi nary steps toward a reorganization were taken by tho appointment of Mr. Benja min Clark, one of the most experi enced firemen in the city, as }ore man.,and driver of the hose carriage. The ose carriage has . been returned to its old quarters, and a temporary ar rangement made with some of the fire men from the other companies to man it, until a permanent organization can be effected, which,will be accomplished as soon as possible. The new company promises to be, even more effective and reliable than•the old one, which was con sidered one of the best in the city. . New Gateway: Superintendent Chislett, of the 'Alle. gheny Cemetery, yesterday kindly per mitted us to inspect the designs for the new lower gateway, now being erected, a large force of workmen being employ. ed in the labor. The entrance will, when completed, be a model of archi tectural beauty, and will eclipse any thing in the way in America. The stone, an elegant quality, with tine grain and compact, is being brought from' Memnon, Ohio. The present gateway will. be converted into an elegant stone . edifice, for alio° purposes. The Ceme tery was never In such good order- as at the present time, and lb its neat beauty reflects much credit to the seal, care, taste and ability of Mr. Misled, who de votes his constant time and attention to ward. keeping it in order. Allegheny Oily Expenditures. The following statement exhibits the' amounts, expended in payment of all city employees of Alleghehy, during the paet month, as shown by the pay rolls pre sented to'the controller from the several departments named. This• does- not in clude any expenses outside of wages. There are other expenditures for city improvements which cannot be definitely ascertained until the next meeting. of Councils, but which will more . than double the amount here given. -, Pollee, 121748,83 Streeo, 1,620,14 Water • Works, .... 1,120,76 Firemen, . 674,86 Hoglneer's °Mee, ,462,60 Wharfossater's office, 12,00 , To' tali 1 'ltSfes4oB JIBE AT WIZESPORT. Disastrous Conflagrations—Six Buildings Destroyed—Loss 340,000. A disastrous conflagration occurred in McKeesport about half.past twelve o'clock Sunday morning, by which the National Hotel, the Masonic Hall build ing, three dwelling houses and a stable were totally 'destroyed.' The fire orig. inated in one of the rooms ct the hotel, shortly after twelve O'clock, when an alarm was given, but owing tothe limited facilities for extinguishing flea and the rapid progress of the fiames,Which had gamed considerable headway before they were discovered, all efforts to suppress 'them or prevent the lire from extend ing to adjoining buildings!,were un avaling. The sta ble atiachedtolhe hotel and situated a short distance.in rear of it next took lire, and being frame, was soon consumed. The flames then spread to the Mae )nic Hall building, a large three story structure adjoining _the hotel on one side, and to a frame Winding on the opposite side, and from .the latteeto two brick dwellings, all of Which were consumed. So far as we have been ena bled to ascertain, but little of. , tbe, furni ture in any of the, buildings was saved, and the loss will not fall short of I/010,000, upon which there is only a partial insur ance. . While the fire was in progress the burgess of the borough telegraphed to the Chief of the Fire Department of this city, Jno. H.-Hare, to send a steamer to their assistance. Mr. Hare, , with his usual promptness, repaired to the depot of the Connellaville Railroad, arid- made arrangements for transporting a steamer and the company, and had the Duquesne engine ready to ship, when a second dis patch was received, informing; him that it would not be necessary to send the en gine, as the fire had expended Its fury and was now under the control of the citizens. ' • This is the second hotel burned in that place within a few months, and within the past year over a half a Milton dol lars worth of property has been de stroyed by fire, a great deal 'of which might have been saved by a proper fire department. We presume the o borough authorities are by this time convinced of the necessity. of a steam engine, and other necessary fire apparattnyo protect the property of the citizens, Fire In Allegheny Sunday about noon fire was discov ered issuing from the roof of a two story frame house, No. 256 Western; avenue, Second ward, Allegheny. Owing to the difficulty in procuring a key-it - Was some Litne tefere an alarm was sounded, which was finally struck from Box 13; located at the corner of the avenue and ' Bidwell street, about two squares distant from the fire. The fire department responded promptly, but when they arrived on the ground the flames bad partially destroy. ed the building, the roof and thegreater portion of the upper story being burned. By great exertion, the family in the house succeeded In saving about one-half of their household effects, the rest falling a. prey to the de vouring element. The house is located next to T. H. Nevin dt Co.'s lead works, and for a time fears were entertained for the safety of that building. The fire communicated to one orthe windows on the second floor, but the firemen Prompt ly directed a powerful stream of water In that direction- and extinguished the flames. This portion of the building was thus deluged by water, but the stock was for the most part contained in ten cans ready for shipment,. and the loss thereby will not be great. There was another frame house, adjoining the burn lag one, In great danger but it was saved from ignition by the efilcienQinore of the firemen. The fire was caused by a defective flue, and originated between the rafters and roof The destroyed house was owned by Messrs. Nevin dc Co., and occupied by Mr. Robert Smith, driver for the firm. The lose of Messrs. Nevin & Co., will reach about eight hundred dollars, upon which there is a full insurance. Mr. Smith could not estimate his lose,' but he had no insurance. An Enterprise Thwarted. A Mr. Odenbaugh, an enterprising young man from Middletown, Washing ton county, went to the borongh of Washington on Saturday and hired a pair of horses and a buggy froni t o n Myers, proprietor of a livery itaVie, for the purpose, as he alleged, of driving to Canonsburg, a oistance of seven .nalle and return. He started with the team but did nor return at the time appointed, and Mr. Myers on making inquiry as. certained thee he had passed through Canonsburg, and had several times along the road offered the team for sate. Think ing it probable that if the fellow wanted to sell the team he would come to this city, Mr. Myers telegraphed to Chief of Police Hague, describing the team and man, and requested that he be arrested and detained until he arrived in the city. Mr. Myers then started for the city on horseback, arriving here late Saturday night, and yesterday morning officers Long and McCready captured Odenbaugh driving the hired team down Liberty street. He was placed in irons and taken back to Washington, where he wasprob ably committed to jail. Runaway at a Funeral. At the funeral of Mrs. Joseph, Ross, Sunday afternoon, a runaway occiirred, causing considerable excitement; but fortunately with no very serious results. The funeral had reached the Allegheny Cemetery, the grave ceremonies had . , been performed , and those in attendance were about re-entering carriages, when the horses attached to one hired of Spen cer & Willison, in charge of a driver named Reynolds, took fright and started off at full speed. They had not gone far before they encountered a tree, and tatt ing different sides were clocked up by the carriage comingin contact with it. The driver was thrown from Meseta and considerably bruised, and the carriage literally demolished. We may state the fact that the carriage referred to was not one of those under the control of e un dertaker having charge of t he funeral arrangements. ,The: runaway was , occa sioned by a carriage of .Taokson & 'De vore's running against that of Spencer & Willison. Renegade of the , °tome. i J A new national dra In five. acts, , under the above capti , will be:lrpre - !tented for, the first time I the Academy of Music this evening, nder the ward cea of Poets 85 and 88 of the Grand Army of the Republic. The piece is written in good style and is full of interest, being based mainly upon facts and Incidents connected with the late rebeilion.! The piece has been in rehearsal for several` weeks. and the persons sustaining the several roles are said to be well up in their parte, and a pleasant entertainment may - be - anticipated. The object of the entertainment is to provide means to as sist the widows of deceased soldiers and educate their children. This, of itself, should induce inanyversens to attepd. Distreadnar :Affidr—Five Children i'col.• soned—Natal Result. • On Saturday morning a very dist ing affair occurred in Allegheny, re tilt ing in the death of a little son of Mr. ..• Geo. N. Mille r;` residing on Water street, near Sandusky,. Fourth ward It seems the little fellow,in company with a young er brother and sister and two other child ren, was playing in theTyard attached to his parents' residence when one of them picked up what he supposed to be a piece of licorice and which 'he divided among his playmates. A short time after eating the stuff the children came into the house, where Mrs. Miller, observing something peculiar in their actions, questioned them and discovered the fin dingi of the supposed licorice. From their appearance the lady con cluded something was wrong, which was confirmed in a few minutes by. one' of the children, little Georgie suddenly fall ing to the floor in convulsions. As quickly as possible physicians were sent for, and in response Drs. Mahon and Rankin came to the house. They at once, from the symptoms, pronounced it a case of poisoning and administered every available remedy, but without affording any relief to the " principal sufferer. He lay" from the time of calling in the physician s — about noon Saturday —until seven o'clock yesterday morning, all the time unconscious and working In spasms until death came to his relief. The other children revived somewhat under medical treatment, and yesterday were considered out of danger. The little victim was but four years of age, and the oldest of the others was less than six. One of them handed to the physician a small piece of the stuff which had been eaten, and which upon examination, proved to be belladona, one of the most virulent poisons. Subsequently an other small piece of the stuff was picked up in the yard at the place where the children had been playing. The yard is common to five or six ten ements, and it is supposed that some per sons, either through carelessness or igno rance threw out the poison, where It was found. • Coroner Clawson was notified of the sad occurrence and impannelled a jury yesterday morning but adjourned the In quest until to-day. In Saturday's GAZETTir a correspon dent severely censured the President and officials oft the Oakland & East Lib erty Passenger Railway Company for a neglect to keep his word in supplying a car to bring in the visitors who had visi ted an exhibition at East Liberty on the previous evening. We are glad to re ceive the following statement from an official and perfectly rellaitle source: The President of the Company kept hispromise,anci through the Superintend ant ordered a ear to. leave East Liberty after the perforthance, with positive int structiona to the conductor to carry all passengers through to the city to Wash , ington street and to collect only the 1 usual fare. The conductor not having complied with his peremptory orders, was nromptly discharged, and thus the complaint of the correspondent was heeded and respected. • • This statement entirely relieves the officers from responsibility, as they can not be held responsible for the disobecil-* ence or dishonesty of their agents. The officials of the road use every exertion In their power to accommodate the public, and their words of promise are in every instance rigidly kept and respected, and' we are glad that In the present case the President is fully vindicated, at he is a gentleman of truth and honor. The Drama on Troy Hill. Yesterday aftereoon the frequenters of Troy Hill were treated to a new Sunday amusement in the shape of a dramatic and musical entertainment. Some en terprising lover of the Thespian art, without the fear of law, either moral or human, before his eyes, secured the large hall in one of the well known gar. dens of that locality and attracted an audience of about two hundred persons, old and young, male and female, by what purported to not sacred concert. Our informant being well versed in the German language, could not speak as regards the sacredness of the affair other than from observation, whiehied him to entirely different conclustions. Tickets for the entertainment were sold at the entrance to the garden, while In side the nut brown beverage was freely qaffe d. The adience was oe of te m u ost: \ enthusiast u ic and nevern h failed to manifest its approval of the performance by hearty demonstrations. It Is .quite probable that as this is the first it will also be the lagt performance of the kind. We find the following in the Louisville Courier= complimentary to our friend, Oliver B. Doud, Esq., who was such a popular leading mall during last season at the Opera House: perfect ovation was accorded this fine.young actor on his appearance at the Opera House last evening. His Don Caesar de Baztua was a sprightly and truthful portraiture. Both the actor,and the man received the very highest marks of appreciation. •Mr. Den& had the nn usuat'honor of being twice i:alled before the curtain. At the close of the piece he was applauded into a good-bye, address, in which he mid many good things about our city and people, and expressed the sincerest gratitude for their manifesta tions of favor toward him. On with drawing he said that within an hour he would - start for New York to enter upon an engegement of two months. - His suc cess in the great metropolis will, we have no doubt, be as signal as it has been here and elsewhere." The name of George Hamilton, Esq., the present able, zealous, efficient and courteous County Commissioner, will be presented for renomination at the Itorth coming Republican Convention. Hellas, for a term of years, faithfully discharged his dutlea, and his record is one of which any citizen might be proud. If renomi nated and elected the people can rest as. sured that their Interests will be careful lY 'plaided, and that the duties of the office will be discharged in the same highly creditable manner as in the past. Commissioner Hamilton is a gentleman too well known and esteemed by nearly all our readers to need any rfurther com mendation at our hands. • Mrs. Rose Mcfiarew and Mrs. Mary Shannon, neighbors residing at Eliza .
