The 'war In Africa. - •‘
Crawford, street, in the neildiborhood '
of Np..3B,'Was the scene of considerable
excitement -yesterday morning. Not
withstanding the oppressive heat of the
weather, an engagement took place be
tween the Fairfaxes, Richards and .Dui--•
feys. It is not knewn, • and Probably
history will never kecord the exact cir
cumstance which brought on the con
flict. It will suffice,' however, toknow
that after a short colloquy Mis. Fairfax,
better known as Fanny, dropped a word
which caused the feelings of -Fanny
Duffy to effervesce. - She did more; she
became violent in her demonstrations of
displeasure, and it is said inber wrath
seized a poker , with which she staggered
Mrs. Fairfax by two well-directed and
powerful blows. Mrs.' Fairfax received
one on the back of the neck and the
other below her right eye. This was all
wrong. Pokers were not made for this
purpose, and should not be so used. The
Fairfax stock was-game though, and
did not succumb,-not yet. Shikmain
talned herground gallantly. though-odds
turnedagainst her. Mrs. Richards, find
ing her neighbor Duffey about being van
quished:rallied to her rescue. Mrs.
Fairfax was made aware of the presence
of a new opponent, by a brick which
sailed in a beautiful curve, and lighted
with damaging effect upon the top of her
a third assailant,. James
;Richards, brought np -the reearve and
! placed himself within the' providlons of
the 'assault and battery act by enoonr\,
aging the two assailants, and lending
some assistance, by hostile demonstra
tions of a forcible but general character.
Fanny finally retired from the field
and left her "victors rejoicing over thejr
victory, while she acquainted Alderman
Butler with the' circumstances. It
was not long before the joy of the victors
was suddenly interrupted by the appear
ance of a police Officer, who compelled
them to return with him to the magis
trates office where they were required to
enter bail for court on charges or assault
and battery. So , Mrs. Fairfax in the
IN ho is Responsible.
Some weeks since a notorious character
was arrested, in this city as a profes
sional thief, and taken before the Mayor,
who committed him for ninety days in
accordance with the laws. Subsequently,
an attorney, on obtaining a promise from
the fellow to leave town immediately,
duced the,Mityor to release hlm on con
dition that he, the thief, would leave the
citylvithin twenty-four hours and not
feturn again. The chief of police within:
formed by-the Mayor on what conditions
the man had been released, with 'untrue..
clone to arrest hiatif found 'Within the
city limits after the expiration of twenty
fbur hours. Over a week has passed
since those instructions were given, and
the thief, although be may be seen on the
streets every 'day and night in the week,
has not been arrested. Who is respon
sible? It is quite evident some one is at
The attorney , certainly bad a right to
secure the release of his client, and the
Mayor undoubtedly' bad a right to re
lease him; in fact it was the best thing
he could do, provided the conditions of
the release were complied with, as he
could thereby save the county the ex
pense of keeping the prisoner. It is the
duty of the Chief of Police to obey the
instructions of the Mayor, and conse
quently It devolved upon him to see that
the conditions of that release were faith
fully carried out, and if not to arrest the
man and have him re-committed. We
should think that the number of lar
cenies and robberies which have been
committed in the city during the past
week or two would be an inducement to
Chief Hague to cause the arrest of Men
whom be knows to be professional
thieves not burglars. Will he do it?
Changed Ma Linen.
There are several ways of being taken
in, some 'of which are - agreeable and oth
ers the reverse. Sometimes persons are
taken in by being made the victim of a
scamp in whom they nave trusted. it
was In this way James McGowan, pro
prietor of the Western Hotel, at the rail
road crossing, Penn street, alleges he
suffered. John Welsh is charged with
making him a victim; It is alleged that
John obtained boarding at the hotel for
some time, and left his baggage as secu
rity for the bill when the landlord de
mended payment. In this way it is said
he managed to elide along two or three
additional days, when he requested the
landlord to allow him to rocnre some
clean linen out of the van e, represent
ing, it is alleged, that he as about to
get the money for the bill. The confi
ding landlord alleges he allowed John to
take the valise and enter another room
for the purpose of making the change. He
saw him no more, nor the] valise either.
He asserts that the chap, i:iy some sur
reptitious means, effected his escape, and
thus cut his bill without the loss of his
raiment. To endeavor toright the mat
ter he made information h fore
man Taylor, yesterday, sigair.st Welsh
for false pretence. Warrant issued.
Thursday evening, between six and
seven o'clock, Captain T. Jr. Fowler
made a very narrow escape from instant
death at Leetsdale, about fifteen miles be
low this city, on the Fort Wayne Rail
road. At that point he stepped off the
train, which had stopped for passengers.
The train was just beguming to move on
again when he attempted to jump on
the front platform of the rear car, but
tripped and knocked his head against
the car, causing him to lose his bold and
Call on the track underneath with his
bead - .resting on the rail. Quick as
thought a bystander seized hold of and
jerked him from his pe rilous position,
not five seconds before /t he wheels of the
hind track passed ov the track upon
which his head was resting. He was
somewhat stunned by striking his head,
but recovered in a short time and was
able to walk.' around, apparently none
the worse for the accident which almost
caused his death.
Grand Charity Picnic.
On Wednesday next, at Monitor grovel
on the Pittsburgh, Ft. Wayne t Chicago
Railroad, the Union C harity Club, of this
;city, *AI hold their ttunal excursion to
the woods and wilds with a grand select'

have always been regarded with high fe

doubtless there will be large-attendance
on. Wednesday , next. A string band, a
good dinner,fit broad and wide platform
for dancing, and no drinks in the neigh . -

diary Alexander, ladies of color, residing
on State alley, Sixth Ward. Mrs. Kemp
was firm in her convictions that "the ,
little engine" would come off triumphant,
while Mrs. Alea.ander was equally confi
dent that success would crown the ef
forts of "the Manchester oarsman."
(Men in Intervals of leisure, the two
would pass the time pleasantly in spirited
discussions in reference to the matter,
but, until the race was , decided, no bad
feeling was manifested. Then the ami
cable relations were somewhat disturbed
by the action of Mrs. Alexander. It was
well enouAlt that she should rejoice at
the result which confirmed her previous
judgment,but she rather went beyond the
range a little, when she jubilated in the
presence of the chagrined Mrs. Kemp.
She jubilated extensively and in a bola.
terous manner. As might have been ex
pected, Mrs. Kemp became out of humor,
and finally , turned; the, Alexandqr joy
into mourning, by lifting several bands
ful of hair from the Alexander head.
This is what Mrs. Alexander asserted
she called at -Alderman Butler's
offic esterday and complained to the

magistrate ,sympathized, with has, and

How it is Done.
A few days since a young man; having
been guilty of some : slight indiscretions,
in consequence of which he *as involv
ed in a criminal prosecution of a' rather
serious nature. called upon us and re
quested`us not , ,to publish the matter,
with which request, after hearing his
explanation of the affair, we prondsed
compliance. He then informed us that
he had requested the Alderman before
whom the information wati'made to sup
press it from the reporters, which that
worthy declined to do only on condition
that he receive the sum of five dollars.
We have rno Objections to Aldermen
making heavy bills of costs and collect
ing them, if the court will permit it. bu d
we do moat decidedly 'object to the other
arrangement, as it 'Ran infringement on
the rights of "ye local" to suppress news
from him, and if we hear of any more of
it we will , inform our readers who it is
that is depriving them of Police news.
The Robbery on Eleth .4treet.
We stated yesterday that,a little boy
had robbed the till at Hespenheide's
store, Sixth avenue, but incorrectly
stated the amount taken. It should
have bees one hundred and thirty dol
lars, the little fellow, Patsey Cummings
by name was arrested about nine o'clock
the same evening at his fathers rest
deuce Point street when he acknowl
aged the theft, but said he had turned
the money over to Patrick Whalen a
companion, Whalen was also secured,
and both boys looked up until this
morning when, E. A, Frank, the clerk
at the store made information against
Cummings, for larceny, and against
Whalen tor receiving it. The accused
were committed to jail, and will have a
hearing this morning. One hundred and
twenty-five dollars 'of the amount was
found in the possession of Whalen.
The funeral of a colored lady who had
made Allegheny her home, occurred a
few days since. The deceased left be
hind some household effects and person
al property, and hardly had her mortal
remains been laid in the grave, before a
difficulty arose relative to the disposal of
the articles. The matter ended in a law
snit which was developed at Alderman
Mullen's yesterday. Aims Belleid, a sis
ter of the departed, claimed the goods,
but alleges she was cheated out of her
rights by James Douglas, another Afri

her repeated demands. The Alderman
issued a warrant for the arrest of the
obstinate James, who will be allowed an
opportunity to explain himself. All the
parties reside in the Third ward.
A day or two since some dextrous
scamp entered the office of Dr. Donnely,
on Grant street, and carried loll* a new
light spring overcoat from the hat rack.
Officer O'Connor, of Alderman Strain's
police, was informed of the circumstance
and after diligent search found the
article in Cohen's pawnbroker shop,
corner of Penn and Canal streets. Mr.
Cohen, when the article was identified
immediately handed it over, and stated
that it had been left there by a man
giving his name as Frank Lyons. Frank
was to call for it yesterday.but somehow
failed to put in an appearance. The
officer is on lie lookout for him, but
will pro ablyly not secure the chap, as he
is suppose town.
_ An Amusing Wager.
An amusing incident consequent upon
the result of the boat race between Ham
ill and Coulter will take place this even
ing. D. W. Keefer and John Fees bet on
the boat race, the wager being that the
loosing man should wheel the other to
the residence of the winning oarsman in
a wheelbarrow, the procession to be pre
ceded by brass band, and after sere
nading the champion return in the same
mariner to the starting point. Keefer
having bet on Hamill is of course the
!wising man, and at five o'clock this even
ing the "wheelbarrow tiain" will start
from the Mayflower saloon on Federal
street, Allegheny city, preceded by the
Great Western Bind.

turn of deaths in the city of Pittsburgh,
for the week commencing August 7th
and ending August 14th, 1869:
There were 84 deaths, of which 16 were
males and 19 females; $2 were white and
The causes of death were: Old age,

On this subject a writer for the S a

says: "When our polley was handed to
us we' accepted with much the .same
feeling that we should have accepted
the title deeds of an estate for our child

The Continental Saloon, Fifth avenue,
below the Pcuitoffice, as conducted by the
accomplished proprietor, Mr. William
Holtzheimer, is deservedly one of the
most popular and fashionable restaurants
in the city, a fact which is made apparent
from the character of its patrons, who
number representatives from all the
trades and professions, merchants,
brokers, lawyers, doctors, mechanics
and ministers. Thy chief reason for its
popularity consists, aside from the daily
fare, which is of the first order, in the
neat, clean and tasteful manner in which
food is pilipared and placed before the
patrons. This is a desideratum not
found elsewhere, but which is certain to
be properly appreciated, and, as in the
case of the Continental, make the res
taurant where it is found popular and
successful.' Meals sae served at all
hours, and our readers , may call and test
the Continental forthetuselves.
A Handsome Pavement.—The recently
patented pavement for sidewalks, known
as the Boulevard, is destined to become
popular and extensively used wherever
its merits become known. By this pat.
ent a pavement, economical, bat smooth,
clean and durable, may be put down in
front of any residence with comparative
ly small cost. The pavement has been
tried, and so far gives universal satisfac
tiOn. It is now being introduced in this
vicinity, by Messrs. McGowan & Co., who
have already tilled a number of orders
and are meeting with gratifying success

Truth in a 'Nut Shell.
It'is a very hard matter to decide from
the many conflicting statements that
from time to time appear in the daily
vapors regarding the number of Sewing
Machines sold in this community. Some
enterprising agents assert that they sell
double the number sold by their rivals,
while others make more modest wiser
ants. In order to help our readers ar
rive at the truth, as the popularity of a
machine is the best evidence of its supe
riority, we would state, as all business
men know, that each agent is compelled
by law to make a return under oath of
his yearly gross sales. From — the tiret
day of April,- .1868, to the 31st day of
March, 1869, as we learn from official
sources, these returns were made as fol

The above figures, so far as they go, are
correct, but are intended to mislead and
deceive a good many persons who may
eventually buy Sewing Machines. As
the author of the foregoing paragraph
truthfully asserts, "the popularity of
machine is the best evidence of its supe
riority," and we can affirm that so popu
lar has the WHEELER & Wrisox ma
chine become, and so well established as .
a household necessity, that we have not
deemed it necessary to doany advertising
for the past ten months, and are only
prompted to do so now, to prevent mis
representation. To show the estimation
that the public have of the ' , Wheeler
Wilson," we correct the above statement
so as to include the sales cf this justly
popular machine from the Pittsburgh
office within the same time:
