Increasing In Popularity.
The Singer Sewing Machine is every
day increasing in popularity. The rea
son is evident. 'lt possesses all the im
provements that have been made in sew
ing machines since their Invention, and
is for that reason one of the mcait, desira
ble in the market. Its Work is in iably
done well—quickly, neatly and ih rough
ly. It is not at all liable to d range
ment, in this respect excelling a majority
of the other machines before the public;
while it is so simple in its construction
that no operator will experience any
difficulty in understanding and manag
ing it. Messrs. Straw dc Morton, the
enterprising agents for Pittsburgh, have
a large and valuable assortment of ma;
chines now on hand, and are prepared to
treat with their patrons on the moist lib
eral and satisfactory terms. Ladies who
are about purchasing a machine at all can
do no better than to pa. a visit to their
rooms, ` corner of pen and St. Clair
streets, and examinuth large and hand
some assortment on view there. Straw
it Morton's sales ,duritig the past season
have been unusually large, which is a
most flattering indication of the 'tending
of the "Singer" in the community.
Cheap Goods;
It is the privilege of consumers, and in
fact a duty, also, to purchase goods
wherever they,can be bought the cheap
est; but when we speak of cheap goods,
we do not mean, as is commonly under
stood by the expression, goods of an in
ferior article, which aresold at low rates,
because it is not' always the. goods
bought for the least money that
are the cheapect; but b:t p f where you can
get the best article for t 0 least money.

'any was experie , cad in getting at the
law applicable to . e case, and there was
for a time coincide able handling of_pam

that the Legislatu e seemed to have re
pealed and re-ena. ed statutes relative to

to.determine wha acts were in force and

of the Court son : . clog defendants and
subsequently dis.oyering
,that the acts
under which Pi& went hid been pro

concluded that the case was Covered by
the _ sixth gamic) . of the clef of March,

ly established the feet that intoxicating,
liquors had been, furnished to minors,
among others to Alfred McClain, aged
eighteen years-, at defendant'll saloon, on.
the evening of last New Year's day. Mr.
Morrison, counsel for:defendant, raised a
constitutional question, viz': that tint

declined to consider this grave question
at this stage of the ewe. Mr? M., always

probably in amid o ration of the fact that
the youths who kat his bar were not
as "old" as they ooked. . . .
Moses Parker, colored, was; indicted for
felonious assault and battery, on oath of
Monies Murdoch, an ex-Cunatable. For
the prosecution it WAS testified that on
last Christmas day, Murdoch, while col-.
looting' taxes, his avocation at that time,
defendant accosted himabont some taxes
which -ho had collected from him (the d'e
fondant). Hard words passed, 'Parker
using abusive language. Murdoch de
termined to arrest him, but observing a
knife in his possession, leerned it dan
gerous to make the attempt alone, and
called a Mr. Rodgers to his assistance.
Tha„arrest was effected after a struggle,
during which Murdoch's coat was cut by
Parker. in his design, as claimed, to in
flict a bodily injury. The defense (W.
T. Haines, Esq., oounvel,) called several
witnesses, who testified they saw all of
the fight, but did not see a knife in the
hands of Parker. They, however, did
see Murdoch rush at Parker and strike
him with a "handy-billy," bringing him
to his knees, and while in this
position continued to ' beat him.
The fact also appeared that
when brought to the tombs Parker '
presented a
_decidedly "used up" appear
ance, having several cuts on his head,
and pretty well covered with with blend.
Nothing was said at the tombs by Mar
doch about a knife, and it was claimed
by the defendant's counsel that this was
an afterthought on the part,of the prose
cuter, as a means of covering up his un
warranted, brutal and cowardly abuse of
the defendant. The jury acquitted
of the felony charge d , finding the defen
dant guilty of sim ple assault and battery.
