Whoever bad the ideato secure for the
Cotmencement 'exercises of the West
tern'linlvcrsity the splendid, building
and organ of the Third Presbyterian
Church, and the_seivizes of Mr. C. C.
Mellor as organist, should be oongritu
lated and -thArdted by an aPpreclatlvo
and grateful public. The excellence of
the organ is self-evident and known to
all.' As to the superiority of the
young organist, nobody Can question
it who heard him on • Friday even
was achnoWledged •In
our , Miistclans
of. kith standing-- in Pittsburgh.: Mr.
Mellor nelongs to the school of 'Wilcox..
To a deep devotional feeling be joins,
like his prototype, an unbigoted theory
of art. Like the great organist of the
Peace jubirel3, Mr. Mellor is essentially
a colorist. He uses the stops and m4nu
ale 'with - a.4" much ease, decision, and
judgment as a good painter would uses '
his brushes end Tigmenta. His orches
tration withal is faever 6Verloaded, but
he varies' it in such a way at# to' ren
der trammel* in his listeners the
sense• of • weariness and monoto
ny:: Under i his hinids--and feet—
the brilliant resources of the in
strument, are exhibited in their best
light, without any apparent intention on
his part todo so r for he never allows the
virtues to killjn him the artist. It is to
.the admirers of Mr. MelloVs talent, a
source of real regret not to hear him play
oftener on so .congenial: an instrument;
and Wow who know his passion for the
organ - and•the energy of his will when
interestedin a work of love, cannot help
speculating with pride on the 'dimen
sions 'that 'Went:might take, if not
cramped and fetred in an irresplansive
fabric.of the old style.

of Reid street and Gas alley; Second

successors to Munroe, Hamilton it Co.,
were totally destroyed, and a large quan

Pitt Lumber company burned. 1
The fire originated in the engine room
shortly after •'-ien o'clock, and ow

out the entire =building, a large frame,
occupying nearly entire square, and
in which were the' sash, door and box
factory and the cooper shop, 'and in less
than half anur a ft er the fire was fi rst
discovered,' th entire Structure was in

The'Frazier Brothers, we learn, only
purchased the establishment a few days
since at a cost of /335,000, and had In ad

Owing to• t. • lateness or•the hour, it
was impossibl • for oar ieporter to ascer

was. estimate . at filly thousand , dollars,
and it was re .. reed that there way but a

The 1. X. L. machine shop, which ad
joins the plan ng mill, was in imminent

End of Me Donaldson itklirder Trial.
We clip the following from the St.
Louis , Diapatch relative to the' trial of
Captain W. B. Donaldson; •on the charge
of murder: •
;Charles P. Johnsen concluded his
sileech for the State, and all who heard
him pronoune. it a splendid' effort. The
Court room :as, crowded; every bench
and window-sill, even the steps leading
to' Judge Primm's desk, was thronged.
The jury retired at 11 o'clock to deliber
ate on their verdict. They, returned. at
ten minutes to twelve, and, upon being
interrogated,' replied that they had agree
upon a verdict. ' The verdict wag handed'
to the Clerk by the foreman, and while
opening andreading it a breathless still
ness prevailed. It wasaki foliowai gitVe,
thejpxy, find the defendant not guilty,
as charged in the indictment. As soon
as the word i'not" , wait' heard, the' ith
