A few days since a woman appeared be-
fore one of the city Aldermen, and made
infcrmation charging a respectable gen
tleman residing in one of the new wards
of the city with adultery. The offense,
she alleges, was committed with her sis
ter, who is a married wonian, and equally
guilty. The charge was doubtless made
for the purpose of levying black mail,
and we learn that the friends of the gen
tleman intend to prosecute the woman
also. .

To the Penitentiary.-Some months ago
a young man entered a jewelry store on
Smithfield street, with a companion, and
was shown a number of gold rings. He
disappeared without buying, but man
aged somehow to carry with him several
of the rings. The police were notified,
and after about a month's search, Chief

of small Italians engaged in a combat in
an alley off Sixth street, during which
one of them was thrown down and was
about to have his head operated upon
with a huge boulder in the hands of his
excited rival, the result of which would
certainly have been disastrous, when
officer Nenbert observed the movements
of the boys and hastened to quell any
farther anger by arresting them both.
Neither could speak English sufficient to
tell their names or give any information
concerning themselves. They will have
a hearing to-day.

For some past a misanderstanding has
existed between the Board of Health
and the Night Soilere of this' city, rela
tive to certain rules and regulations pre
scribed by the Board. The 'question at
issue was a resolution adopted by the
Board in December of last year, requir
ing all persons who follow the vocation
of night Boilers to supply themselves
with a machine, such as is used by Mr.
McCarthy for that purpose, and in ac
cordance with same resolution they re
fused to grant permits to ,persons not
having said machines. Tho matter was
brought before the court and an opinion
delivered by Judge Stowe in the case of
the Board of Health vs. Jacob Smith.
This was an action brought by the
Board of Health against the defendant
for having emptied the contents of a cess
pool without having first obtained a per
mit from the nom°, as provided in, the
6th section of "An act of Assemblyi, ap
proved April, 1862, defining the pow
er &
t. cill
duties, of the Board. The case
w originally brqught before Alderman
DJ rrpw, and judgment rendered against
Smith to the amount of twenty dollars,
the penalty prescribed by law. The
case went up to the Common Pleas on
an appeal 'from the Alderman's decision,
and was intended to teat the right of the
Board to make such regulations as those
under which he had' been convicted.
The ;only question to be determined,
His Honor said, was whether the defen
dant is legally bound to pay the penalty
of twenty dollars for violating the act of
Assembly in question. "The evidence
showed that he dkido that which the
act prohibits, without having a permit,
and therefore subjected himself to the
penalty. There is no escape except by
holding that the law la unconstitutional
and void, which clearly it is not. Judg
ment must be entered in this case for
the plaintiff against the ;defendant for
the sum of twenty dollars and costs,"
Judge Stowe stated that he had been re
quested to give an opinion as to the
legality - of the adopted by the
Board of Health, requiring persons en
gaged in vault cleaning to provide them
selves with steam vacuum carts and
wagons with air tight boxes. He said
that the Court did rot give opinions in
eases not before them, but in this case he
would state, as his individual opinion,
that under the act of April, 1669, the
Board is fully authorized to enforce all
requirements embraced in the resolu
tion referred to. He suggested that the
only proper way to have a decision on
the matter from the Supreme Court,
would be to apply to Court for a mandam
us on the Board to grant a permit or ex
cuse, or both as the case may be. -
Court of Quarter - Sessions—Pull Bench.
SArrntrav,`July 24.—5. D. Rothermel,
Esq., presented a petition signed by a
number of citizens of the Second ward,
Allegheny. asking that the license of
Frederick Benner, proprietor of a drink
ing house at Monterey and Jackson
streets, Allegheny, be revoked. The pe
titioners set forth that drunken men are
in the habit of congregating at the house,
and by their noise and disorderly con
duct cause great annoyance to them and
their families. Other annoyances are
enumerated, such as are suffered by fe
males who are compelled to pass by the
crowds frequenting thel house. _The
Court granted a rule on Benner, return.

why the prayer should not be granted.

victed during the last term of cowl, were

Youthful , . Criminal.
Some weeks ago. Robert Hawthorne,a
lad about eleven years of age, was em.
ployed in the family of Mr. Thomas
Layng as errand boy. He was kindly
cared for, and fired well, until he mani
fested a disposition of ingratitude and
wickedness, quite sad to note in one so
young. Noticing that Mrs. Layng was
in the habit of putting her poeketbook
in a certain drawer, he took adyantage
of the -tact, one night, when all the
family were slumbering, to riae and
ransack ilie — drawer; - securing thareVi
about fifty dollars iu cash. When the
money-was missed next morning he was
suspected, but denied all knowledge of
it: He was then taken before Alderman
Shore upon an information for larceny,
when he confessed the crime, and stated
he had given the money to two compan
ions, the same night, they having been
lying in wait. These boys, giving their
names ais Con. Rodgers and Andy. Har
land, were arrested, and held for a hear
ing, while Hawthrone wits committed to
the House of Refuge, to which he was
taken Saturday.

Catharine Rees seems to have been on
bad terms with several of her neighbors,
and as a consequence engaged extensive.

in the neighborhood of the Copper
Works on Second avenue. Alderman
Thomas was .entrusted with the litiga
tion. The first information was against
Robert Knox, charging him with main
taining a disorderly house in the locality
named. The second set forth that the
prosecutrix had been beaten by Catha
rine Rowland; with wbom'she had a; dis
pute in reference to the occupancy of a
certain yard with a clothes lineoupon
whioh hung her washing. The third
and last was against Miss . Laura Knox,.
who is said to have made dire threats
against Catharine, which caused her to
fear_ bodily harm. Warrants for the ar
rest of the accused were issued in all the

-8 ,200, and ow to dispose of it 'snow the
subject of a alone consideration by the
members of the organization. Some of
them seem to think that if the Fire De
partment of the city is changed to a paid
system, as proposed, that all the money
will have to be handed over to the city
along with the other effects. For this
reason they are In favor of disposing of
it in some manner more calculated to
yield them pleasure or profit, and
accordingly an excursion, or a
division of the money, are the plans pro
posed. Others of the company contend
that the money is not a part of the city's
property, that it has accumulated,
through several years,out of the pockets
of the individual members, and that
they alone have power to use it, a posi
tion which appears to be perfectly just.
They therefore object to having ft sperm
until the new system is put into opera
tion, and the company thus compelled
to disband and reorganize under the
city authority.
The dispute has caused considerable
excitement among those directly interes

have it settled.
Needed a Bath.
On the sixth day of• the present month
the iron doors of Warden Scandrett'a
mansion, on the hill, closed upon the
form of Hughey Freel, who had been
granted a ticket of admission by Mayor
Brush for twenty days. Yesterday
Hughey breathed free air again, and act
ing upon his first impulse, forgetful of
time or place, rushed to the Allegheny
river, disrobed himself quickly and was
soon enjoying the luxury of a cool and
healthful batl2. ' , There is no rose with
out a thorn," hoWever, a truth which was
forcibly impressed upon the mental
perceptions of 'Hughey, who was
suddenly seized' in—the midst of
his pleasures, compelled to don his
garments, and take up a disagreeable
march to the lock-up. The nature of his
offense was explained to him there,
when he strenuously plead for a release,
urging as a reason for his improper con
duct, the fact of his twenty "days' impris
onment and the great need be had for a
bath under the circumstances. Not
withstanding this powerful appeal, how
ever, the officials failed to appreciate its
beauty or logic, and inexorably dis
charged that duty bv locking Hughey in

United States Local Inspectors of Steam

POlisou for Dogs.
The very active Chief of Police, not bay
tog the fear of boarding house sausages
before his eyes, caused last week “but
tons" of poisoned meat to,be;distributed
where dogs do most congregate, for the
purpose of lessening their number. In
asmuch as the practiceis to be continued
during the present week, we would
advise all our friends owning canines to
• keep them within doors or so have them
securely muzzled so that t,tiey may not
fall victims to the humane 'method adop
ted by the municipal authorties to en
force an ordinance whose provissione by
no means warrant such a proceeding.
The officer found distributing such "but
tons" on the public streets and alleys,
should be arrested and punished accord
ing to law, as the instructions given him
higher authority will amount to
little in his defense. There is an ordin
ance on the city code providing for the
curtailment of canines, and instead of
making a short cut to put it into execu
tion, the. Chief of the dog-killers should
go about it in the legitimate manner.
"Arrested Proceu.'

MESSRS. EDITORS: "Taxpayer" seems
to have understood the matter of• a
new market house and to have viewed
it in the proper light, with the exception
that the case was hardly represented
strong enough. Not only is a market
needed in'the locality named, but if the
Citizens, and taipayers, to be benefited
thereby, are to have justice rendered
them, it should be built immediately.
As the case now is, having to purchase at
the Diamond,, transport the stuff to
their homes, kites about half a day in
the journey, [for journey it surely lad
ana bear all the trouble and inconveni
ence attending such a mode of procuring
supplies, they lose fully one-half what
they are worth. For this reason a grea.
many are deterred from visiting the Dia
mond market and prefer rather to be de
pendant upon the stores and such places
for their produce and marketing. Were a
market house convenient, however,
things would be different. It would be
patronized and abundantly supported
by these people, and then the city would
secure a new and considerable revenue,
where she now realizes nothing.
As regards the Lyons Lot, recom
mended by the Committee, the strongest
and best argument In its favor is the
fact that the citizens interested heartily
endorse the selection. Easily reached,
ample enough for the purpose, the most
central spot in the section to be bene
fited, and offered on liberal terms, it
seems no surprise that the Committee
viewing the matter deliberately and
looking to the best interest of all con
cerned, from an unbiased standpoint,
unhesitatingly decided - in its favor.
Now that the matter at last has assumed
some shape, it is to be hoped that their
recommendation will be promptly ap
proved by Councils, and the long de
layed market built at once. One
year hence will clearly evince the wis
dom of the choice, or a large number of
people will be greatly disappointed,

The Fatality from Hernia or Rupture.
Hernia or Rupture, although not ordi
narily a fatal malady, is one full of dan
gerous and evil consequences, and we feel
that we confer a _favor on our readers
when we direct their attention to a place
that stands the equal of any in the United
States for the variety and perfectness of
such appliances. Now and then we hear
of deaths from strangulated hernia, and
no one who is threatened in that way can
be too seriously alive to , the important
necessity.of early and appropriate man
agement. The appiler of trusses in a
community as densely populated as that_
of Pittsburgh, is as much entitled to
adequate encouragement as in any
kind of business with which we are
acquainted, especially when the immu
nity from danger, and the - security to
personal safety is afforded at a compara
tivelytriffing cost. No branch of busi
ness is entitled, at our hands, to a higher
regard than that which affects human
life and health; and when we look
around us, and note the fact that one
out of every six of the male popula
tion are so afflicted, no words of warning
can be too forcibly urged nor too fre t
quently reiterated. People do not •al
ways suffer from rupture of the bowels
through open neglect; but often from
want of knowledge. where, and from
whom, to seek the proper remedy.
There are hundreds of persons who
from infancy to boyhood and even man
hood, defer attention in this respect for
want• of a proper appreciation of the se
riousness of the malady of which we
write. DR. KEYSER, at his great medi
cine store and office, No. 1(37 Liberty
street, has qualified himself in a notable
and praiseworthy degree, to meet every
indication of. hernia, besides a
number of other abnormal conditions
which appear to be, and perhaps are,
strictly mechanical as in regard to the
means to be used for their alleviation or
cure. Rupture is one of these conditions,
and one which entitles him to more than
an ordinary share of public patronage—
as well because of his extraordinary
ability as because of the extra advertising
which insures their publicity.
