Mere than once we have called attention
to the pig-pen-nuisance in front of the
Penitentiary. The grotind immediately
in front of that institution is as much
common property as it ever was, but the
citizens have tacitly assented to its in
closure because it had been neatly sodded
and planted with trees and generally
presented an attractive appearance. But
a large triangular portion of it has for
some time past been used a pigpen, from
which often arises the concentrated odor
of a miniature cattle-yard. Recently,
Citizens, who have been in the habit of
keeping pigs upon their premises within
the city limits, have been obliged, by the
officers of the law, to discontinue the
practice, and it is scarcely to be wondered
at that much dissatisfaction is felt at the
existence of this nuisance at all, and es
pecially upon common property and
within sight and smell of everybody.
Although the Penitentiary may not re
main very long where it is now located,
it is hoped that the pigs may go first.

Sudden Death In Allegheny The -
• 'feral Arrangements Interrupted by a
Coroner's Inquest—Mystery, Grief and
Excitement—The Result of It AU.
Yesterday afternoon a peculiar and
somewhat startling episode occurred at
a funeral ceremony in Allegheny. A
hearse followed by a long line of car
riages had drawn up in front of a dwell
ing, which from the outward tokens con
tained the remains of one whose earthly
pilgrimage was over. The streets near
by were lined with eager spectators,
drawn together by that morbid cariosity
which incites people on all such oc
casions. The house was filled with
the friends, who had gathered to
pap the last tribute of respect to
the memory of the departed. Every
thing was in readiness for the com
mencement of the sacred and impressive
services, when suddenly an unexpected
and somewhat my merlons interrup ion
interfered for the time with the progress .
of the exercises. The interruption was
caused by the entrance of an officer;
clothed with the necessary legal authori
ty, who announced that the funeral could
not proceed until an inquest had bean
held on the remains. Such a strange occur
rence naturally caused intense excite
ment and required an explanation, which
was given in the following manner:
About a year ago policies in three in
surance companies to the amount of $27,-
000 were taken out on the life of Conrad
Gorbach, residing at 126 Ohio street,
Allegheny. whose remains yesterday
were about to be interred. Conrad,
so far as known, was in sound health
and stout, and about forty-five years of
ago. He was a cotton spinner by trade,
but at the time was not and has not been
since, we are informed, working regular
ly at this employment. He was a mar
ried man, then living with his second
wife, and the father of several children,
some of whom were married. The poli
cies were all taken out in Eastern com
panies and were for $2,000, $5,000 and
$20,00d respectively.
About a month and a half ago he was
taken suddenly sick, when a physician
was called In who prescribed for him.
He recovered, but subsequently bad one
or two attacks, the last of which put an
end to his life Saturday evening or Sun
day morning.
In the meantime a rumor, faint at
first, but growing as only a rumor or
falsehood can grow, got afloat that some
thing was wrong. The rumor seemed to
be based on the allegation that as the
premiums on the policies amounted to
nearly tiro thousand dollars per year, it
was impbssible for the deceased to pay
the sal from his limited earnings,from
which i was argued that some person
interested had advanced the amount and
eventually aided in getting him out of
the stay. In fact it was asserted that
Conrad never had paid the money him
self, au acquaintance and one of the sup
poaed interested party having given his
check for the greater part of the amount.
Another point alleged was that the de.
ceased had been visited by the Insurance
agent a few days subsequent to his death,
when he stated he knew nothing about
"any insurance outside the $2,000 policy;
that the others if obtained at all, were
secured by some surreptitious means, or
by a substitution of some other person
for him.
Such were the many rumors which ad
ded to a hundred others of less founda
tion even, gained such headway that at
the instance of the Insurance agent it is
said an examining physician was brought
on from the east, to investinate the con
dition of the man. This physician ar
rivedin the city on Saturday evening
and intended proceeding with his work
yesterday, which, however, was ren
dered unnecessary by the sudden demise
of the man. •
The affair by this time bad gained
such a notoriety in the neighborhood
that the agents of the several companies,
in.which the deceased had been insured,
thought the interests of the family as well
se their own demanded that a full inves
tigation be made. This decision was
arrived at, yesterday, and immediately
they made preparations for an inquest,
The funeral had been arranged to come
off at two a'cloclg, and it was expected
that the whole matter could be settled in
a few minutes. but unfortunately they
were so long in deciding that the cere
monies had to be interrupted as stated.
Alderman Donaldson, upon being noti
fied, repaired to the house and in a short
time sail:kennelled a jury, when the in •
quest was proceeded with—the friends
and acquaintances in the meantime
smothering their grief, rendered thus
doubly crushing by the unusual pro
The jury, after being sworn, examined
the body which was enclosed in a rose
wood coffin in the room, and already ex
hibited evidences that the work of de
composition bad far advanced. The fol
lowing testimony was then elicited:
Dr. John Hamilton, sworn—l was
called to attend deceased about the 22d
of June, 1869, when he appeared in a
dying condition. He had great difficulty
in respiration, and upon examination
found he had a lung trouble, such as we
call asthma or capillary bronchitis.
Hardly thought he would live then, but
gave him something anti he got better.±
In the course of eight or ten days he
was able to come down to my office on
Ohio street. About the 22d day of July
I was again called to see him, and found
him suffering from another attack of the
same disease. He got better that time.
The next time I was called to see him
was on the let of August, when /Aland
him with the same old trouble, but not so
bad as at first. I saw him again the
next day, when he was better., I saw
him again last-Saturday morning. He
was eating his breakfast, breathed very
freely, and said he felt better. He call
ed my attention to what be was spitting
up. It was streaked a little with blood,
but I told him not to be alarmed, that
such a thing often °cowed in mesa this
kind. I bad examined him for symptoms
of consumption, but symptoms
of tubercular trouble. He bad asthma,
but from his symptoms I thought he had
some other obscure disease, which I could
not detect. I could not tell whether It
was organics or not. He had swelling in
the -knees, indicating the presence of
some other disetiae. As near as I could
tell he died of spasmodic asthma. I was
not present at the time of his death. I saw
him about ten o'clock Saturday morning,
when he appeared to be breathing well
And had no alarming symptoms.
•Olitia. Pfaff, sworn.—The deceased was
my - father-in-law. I was present fifteen
minutes before and a few minutes after
his death. When I left him a member
of his lodge was with him, and Mrsrr
bitch was sleeping.
Dittner, sworn.—Was present,
at the time of the death of the deceased.
No one else was with him. He died very
quietly while sitting on the sofa with his
head resting'between his hands. I called
Mrs. Gorbaoh and told her he was either
dead or dying.' She made no answer,
but commenced crying and went down
stairs to hall her son-in-law. He -died
about one. o'clock. I have, ktiowtOilm
about one year, and he was healthy 'When
I first knew WM— don't know- what he

jury were allowed to deliberate for a few
minutes, when they returned a verdict
that "The deceased, Conrad Gorbach,

While the inquest was being held, Al

beaded by a brass band. The crowd of
spectaora by this time had increased to
such an extent that the street was almost
blockaded, and as rumorsof the proceed
ings inside were whispered around
the excitement became intense. The
inquest was .proceeded with as rap
idly as possible, and in about half

disagreeable duty. As they vacated the
room the family of the deceased enter

unable to longer control their feeling,

ate sobs and tears—a scene, which in
connection with the peculiar events
just transpired, seemed affecting and'
touching in the extreme, and made an
ineffaceable impress upon the memory
of every witness.
Journeymen Tailors In Convention.
An nternational convention of repro
senta Ives from the various Journeymen
Tail° a' Unions in the United States and
Cana a, assembled in Stenger Hail, cor
ner of Seventh avenue and Grant street,
this city, Monday morning. The per
manent President being absent,the meet
ing was organized by electing Mr. Geo.
HumPhreys President pro tem., and ap.
pointing Mr. Hongendabler Secretary,
and Mr. McCarthy Treasurer.
The roll of delegates was then called,
and a Committee on Credentials an.
The Committee subsequently reported
the credentials all correct.
Mr. Bitisittt, of New York, reported a
strike in progress among the shop tailors
of that city and vicinity, in which 5,000
men are engaged. He hoped that the
delegates assembled would give an ex
pression of their sympathy with the
strikers and asked that he be authorized
to send the following dispatch to the
great demonsi,ration to be made in front
of City Hall, a; twoo'clock this afternoon:
"Brothers, continue the struggle. The
sympathy of the delegates of the Inter
national Union is with you. Be firm,
then, and a glorious victory will be
yours." The suggestion was adopted.
After the transaction of some other
business, the Convention adjourned until
two o'clock P. M.
The delegates reassembled pursuant
to adjournment at two o'clock, the Pres
ident protein in the chair. •
The minutes of the morning session
were read and approved. _
The credentials of delegates fromthe
Clotning Cutters, Union, of New
York, were presented and read.
Mr. Mouslard moved that the delegates

Mr. McCall moved to amend by refer

meantime the delegates be admitted to

and was finally adopted as amended.

were then, on motion, notified of the ac
tion of the Convention and invited to

Another Big Oil Strike.
By a private dispatch from J. B. Mech.
ling, Esq., one of the leading and most
responsible attorneys. of Tionesta, Po.,
we learn that on Saturday evening a new
well was struck on the Jamieson flats,
and on Sunday pumped at the rate of
one hundred barrels per day. This is
the second Important well obtained on
that farm and creates considerable ex
citement oil circles. The Jamieson
farm is about one mile above Tionesta on
the opposite bank of the river. It is ad
joined by the large farm owned by Pitts
burgh GAZETTE •proprietors, and on
which several wells are about to be
bored. This new territory attracts
much attention, and is thought
to be equal to any of the pro-
ducing districts of the State. Oil is
obtained in large and constant sup
ply at a depth. varying from one hun
dred and fifty to two hundred and fifty
fest, while in other localities the opera
tor mast go down a much greater dia.
lance, involving a far heavier expense.
It is natural that we should be glad to
note all the new developments in this
region which so long remained neg
lected. A few years ago better wells in
the vicinity of Tionesta, and on the
Gaz.nrrE farm, were abandoned, on ac
count of the low price of oil, than are
now being operated in a very profitable
manner on other portions of the belt, and
this fact lends greater attraction to the
district. Several new wells are going
down on the Jamieson flats, while opera
tions on others have been commenced on
the Tionesta side of the river.
A Wool Transaction.
Yesterday morning a lot of wool ar
rived at the Allegheny station, con--
signed to Mr. Robert Hunter, of this
city. A short time afterwards a man
giving his name as Logan called at the
depot, stated he bad bought the wool
from Hunter and wishecbto take it away
to his establishment in the Allegheny
Diamond. The wool accordingly was
delivered to him, when he signed the
receipt and disappeared. Subsequently
Hunter called for the wool, and was sur
prised to learn of the transaction, which
he at once pronounced a fraud. He im
mediately come before Alderman Mo-
Masters and made information against
Logan for larceny. Officer Blondin was
entrusted with the case and subsequent
ly discovered- the wool, eight packages
in all, had been sold to a firm on Liberty
street, who had paid WO cash to Logan
for it. Immediately upon receipt of the
money the seller had moved oft and
could not be traced. The officers are on
the lookout for the sharper, with, how
ever, small prospect of securing him.

Conflict of Jurisdiction.
A few days ago information was made
by Chief Hague before the Mayor, charg
ing Mary Joice with selling liquor on
Sunday, and the action being a civil one
for the purpose of recovering the penal
ty of fifty dollars, a summons was Issued
and served and yesterday morning fixed
as the time for the hearing. During the
time intervening between the date of the
information and the hearing, proceedings
of a similar nature for the same offence
were instituted before Alderman Lynch,
who, after a hearing, gays Judgment in
tho usual form for the penalty, and when
the case was called for a hearing before
the Mayor a transcript from the Alder
man's docket was presented and the plea
of former conviction entered. The case
was held over for further consideration,
and in the meantime an information
charging Mrs. Soles with Baling liquor
withoat license was made, upon wnich
she was held for a hearing.
The Superiority of the Boulevard pave
ment over all other styles in use is daily
becoming •more apparent to the public,
and:we are not surprised that the enter
prising proprietors of the patent for this
section, Messrs. R. M. McCowan it Co.
No. 65 Ohio street, Allegheny, have as
much as they cab attend to in supplying
orders. The Boulevard is solid, clean
and pretty and for walks or pavements
much more durable than bricks or even
Sag stones, for when once properly laid
it never,weare out. It is comparatively
cheap and -when it is !Piny appreciated
by the public we can confidently , look
for a complete revolution in paving. Or
ders either for city or country left with
Messrs. MoCoWan Co. will receive
PruMpt attention.

The language of nature and experi
ence demonstrates that whoever would
enjoy the pleasures of food, the beauties
of landscape, the joys of companionship,
the riches of literature, or the honors of
station and renown, must preserve their
health. The effect of foul r bsjurious food,
entering the Stomach, is to derange the
digestive organs and produce headache,
loss or appetite, an/wrestling sleep, low
spirits, feverish burnings, eta which are
the symptoms of that horrid disease,
Dyspepsia, which assumes a thousand
shapes, and points toward a miserable
life and premature decay. PLANTATION
&waits will prevent, overcome and
counteract all of these effects. They act
with unerring power, and are taken with
the pleasure of a beverage.
