The Pirate's Legacy Is the title of a

fellow-towsman, Professor Rudolph
Leonhardt, of the Western University.
The Professor is no novice in the paths
of fiction, as the many readers of his
former books, both in English and Ger
man, can testify, and this last is said to
be much the best of his works. It is not
a sensation story, as, from its title, some
might be led to believe, but a simple,
picturesque tale of high and low 'life
in America and Italy. The story was
written in English, but its accomplished
author has translated it into German and
sold the translation. The English edition

Result of a Hearing
Last evening Barclay and Kennedy,
two of the parties charged with aggra
vated assault and battery upon Jacob
Slant; a saloon keeper in Pleasant Val
ley, Second ward, Allegheny, had a
hearing before Mayor Drum. It will be,
remembered, that the parties on last_
Monday afternoon are said to have enter
ed the saloon, raised ar row with the pro
prietor, were put out; came again and
'beat him in a terrible manner. At one
time it was feared that Slentz's injuries
would prove fatal,.but he has somewhat
recovered, and was able to be present at
the hearing. A number of witnesses
were examined, 'and at the conclusion
the parties were held for trial.
Almoit an Accident.
Yesterday afternoon a colored man,
driving a cart and hauling dirt from the
sower on Diamond *Hey, was backing
his cart up to an exciv,ation for a sewer
drop, at the corner of. Smithfield and
D' cad streets, in which two sons of
the "Emerald Isle" were at work, and
not having the necessary atop blocks the
cart dropped in upon them._ One of
was slightly bruised on the top c f the
head, and the other (+Soaped uninjured.
The latter immediately jumped out of
the excavation and "went" for the color
ed man, who was using his utmost en
deavors to get the cart ont of the excava
tion. Owing to the attack, however,
ho was compelled to suspend operations,
and the poor fellow in the drop under
the cart was compelled to remain there
until his brother workman had chas
tised the negro. After a few cuffs and .
kicks, which the poor fellow quietly
submitted to, the cart was removed, and
the man who was under it wanted ,to
fdither chastise the negro for not extri
cating him sooner. He was preyented,
however, by an explanation.

any aside from those here recorded.
. State and County Taxes
Although the County Treasurer has
been ready to receive the taxes since the
first of the month, comparatively few
persons have called to settle their ac
counts and save the per centage. To
many persons engaged in business, who
have;a large amount of tax to pay, it is
quite an object to• use the money until
the list day of grace; but there are hun
dreds of persons who have the amount
lying-idle, who 'would find it much to
t heir own convenience, and might greatly
facilitate business in the Treasurer's
Office, to pay at once. The present office
of the treasury is entirely too small for
the business, there not being sufficient
counter room to lay out all . the dupli
cates', and consequently when the rush
comes in June and July, the incon
venience of paying will be much greater
than; in former years, before there were
so. many districts and taxpayers. All
those' who can, should step up to the
office before the jam commences, where
theylwill find the Treasurer and a full
corps of competent clerks to wait on
