the opinion that that was the only false
and slanderous publications that have
appeared in the public print, which was
certinly erronons, as he had read editor

false and slanderous. -

that he had known the reporter of the

decided in the affirmative without a "dis

Ali a "sleenird," Edward; McGann is ; a
success. Others may simply sleep as a
refreshing episoder.iii the labor_ of life,
but Edward has incteased Its enjoyment
by reducing it to a system. With him
it is both a science and an art. Edward is
modest in his pretensions,' bnt occasion
ally his peculiar genius in this riespec'
becomes manifest, as it did yenerday.
He was entrusted by the - barman of a
saloon up town to procure the'“cbange"
fora twenty dollar bill, which a cus
tomer had proffered in payment' of cer
tain potations. Edward, happy and
animated as a policeman on duty, depar
ted on his mission, while the customer
and the confidential bar,,ixian awaited
his return. Ordinarily, the matter
should have occupied live minutes, but
the minutes oxtended into hours and
yet Edward returned not. Strange mis-
givings at length seized upon the vender
of juleps and smashes, and to ease his
anxiety he called at Alderman Taylor's
olive and secured the services of officer
Bell to ascertain what accident bad be
fallen Edward. The officer, after a dili
gent search, discovered Edward' in an
other Baleen not far away, enjoying him
self immensely and endeavoring to sur
round • a foaming glass of lager.
Taken into the Alderman's presence
he explained his absence. He bad been
asleep, caused by the soporific influence.
of the money. Upon returning from his
journey itikthe land of 'dreams, all recol

and now he was only glad. that the ,clr
oumstances had been recalled so pleas-,
aptly, as it afforded, hinxiin opportunity
of returned g the same minus twenty
cents, the disappearande of which he
could nut account for. Only 'this and
nothing more. This beautiful and artis
tic explanation of the case failed to pen.
etrate the Aidermanici.obtuseness, and
EdWara was consequently held to bait
for his appearance to-morrow, when the
charged of larceny preferre'd against him
by the bar-man will be considered.
A few days ago Me. WM. Rodgev:
being , in need of a horse, wended his
his way_to the horse market, presided :
over by Mr. John Bowors. Among the
number of line animals which attracted
his nttention, he selected one ,valued
at thirty-seven dollars, and according to.
his statement upon being assured that
the beast was sound in wind, limb, and
every other respect, paid over the money
and departed. He had not proCeeded
three squares hoivever; before his
purchase began to' exhibit unusual
symptons for a sound horse, and
indications of a wind•broken con
dition. This was made clearly apparent
when the horse• suddenly stopped, tin;
able to proceed farther, and assumed ad
appeatauee and acted not unlike a pair of
bellows. Considering himself to be the
victim of misrepresentations, Rodgers
took the horse 'back and demanded hks
money, which he alleges was refused
him. He then left the animal and made
information before Alderman Donaldson
against Bowers for false pretenses,
making the' allegations as set forth, up
on which a warrant was issued.
About a week ago James Laughlin
found himself in need of , a pair of boots.
Being short of fends it required some
40am:wing skill to secure the needed
articles-but he managed the case, it is
alleged in a very si m pie rummer. Simple
measures are sometimes more effective
than* exhaustive efforts, knowing a friend
who was fortunately possessed of good
credit at a certain shoe store, be seized
upon the brilliant Idea of using that
friend's name, which he did, and as a re
sult, without money and 'without price,
rejoiced in the possession of a pair of the
best French calf. It subsequently be
came apparent to the proprietor of the
store, Mr. A. Johns, that the, proceed

when the bill was presented to the friend
he utterly denied knowledge& the/rens

The "Friendship' , %Steather.
Yesterday morning the new steamer
for the Friendship Fire Compasiy, of Al
legheny, arrived In the city and ,wee
taken in charge by the. Company. I ' The '
machine was built at the Amoikeag
Works, N'ew'llampshire, and cost g 4,500,
It is what is called a second classeagine,
being mucteliahter than either the Gen.
Grant or Hope steamers, but calculated
to do about the same work under et di
nary circumstances. The new steamer
is a model of beauty acid elegance, and
the Friendship boys may well be prdud
at th , s practical result of their eEkirtai to
secure a good apparatus. It is built din
the usual style, brass mounted, Etc.,
and is In every respect first class as re
gards the workmanship or appearance.
A preliminary trial was made yester
day and the result' gave the beat satis
faction. The machinery worked with
out a jar, and performed its work ad
mirably. Asocond trial will take place
iO-day, when the throwing mpaclties of
the machine will be put to•the test. If
t works ted, well in this respect dein
others, it can certainly be classed among
the best machines in the airinity.
