There were a number of spectato pres

the most exciting and closely contested
since the opening of. the season. The
fielding of the Atlantics was especially
i )
good, while the Olympics seemed to have
the advantage at the bat. The 0 ymplcs
eventually won the game, th score
standing at the close 25 to 23, eight in

increasing interest may be attributed.
The usual number of races took place
on Saturday, principal , among which
were the race between Kaye-and - Luther.
and a four-oared race betweeni picked
crews from the Vigilant and Eagle fire
The single scull race between Kaye
and Luther which took place upon the
Allegheny course, 'for a purse, of three
hundred dollars, was a very exciting one
and was witnessed by a large concourse
of people, both banks along tie eatire
course being lined with spectatrs. The
start was made from the St. Clit street
bridge at five o'clock and forty minutes.
Kaye took the lead but maintained it only
for a short time. Before the Hand street
bridge was passed Luther came up with
and soon after passed his adversary,
which position be kept throughout the
race, coming in easy winner in 22:26.
The race between the crews 'orthe
Vigilant and Eagle fire companies, for a
supper, took place at half past five
o'clock, over the lower- Monongahela
course. The race was witnessed by a
lint() crowd of spectators, who
arpeared highly interested in the
result, but there - wasn't much
money changed bands on the race.
The Vigilant boat was manned as fol
lows: Maxwell, (stroke,) Reisineyer,
Herbert and Eccles, (bow.) The Eagle
crew consisted. of Earl, (stroke,) Smith
son, Boyer and-,Andrew Miller, Jr.,
(bow.) Some time was spent in getting
in position, but at length the word was
given, an d fair start was made. The
boats kept tolerably even for a little
while, but the Eagle crew at .length
pulled; ahead. They. turned the buoy
first, and, on the home stretch, led off at
an in increasing distance. On the way
home the Vigilant . boat ran upon
the bar, and had to be lifted off
and pushed some distance. By this, of
course, much time was lost, and the dis
tance between the two boats consider
ably increased. An easy victory was
ahead of the Eagle boys, however, and
they rowed leisurely'. The Vigilante
pulled vigorously, but came in a long
distance behind. The time made by the
Eagles was twenty-two minutes. The
race was for a supper for twenty-five per
sons. The supper was served at Schild's
Saturday evening, and was a very enjoy
able one.

Saturday evening, shortly after six
o'clock, William Lebzelter, a boy about
sixteen years old, received injuries at
the railroad crossing, Federal street, Al
legheny, which will in all probability re

WesterEf_ avenue, and was returning
from work, when a westward bound
train was passing over the street. He
had been in the habit of jumping on the
trains and thus riding part of the way
home, and on this occasion attempted to
jump on the car next to the last, but un
fortunately missed his hold and fell with
his left leg lying across the track. The
wheels of the car passed over, just below
the knee, crushing it to a jelly. Re was
taken to the office of Dr. Herron, in the
vicinity. That physician being absent,
Drs. D. N. Rankin, Haselton and Haa

with Dr. Buchanan Amputated the leg
above the knee, such an operation being
found necessary. The injured lad was
then conveyed to his residence, where at
last accounts he was lying in a precarious
condition. He is the oldest son of a
widow, and was the chief support of his
mother which makes the accident more

MESSRS. Borrow: Now that the
"Park Speculation" has received its
quietus, it is to be hoped that Councils
will devote their attention to the neces
sities of the city.
A permanent supply of good pure
wafer is the pressing, urgent want of the
people. The present supply is insufficent
ana it requires no chemist to prove that
it is most impure. But no "half way"
measure will supply - the want.
And if nothing natter can be found
than the proposed location of "the
works" a short aistance abofe Negley's
Run, we may as well content ourselves
with what we now have; increasing the
the capacity of the present works, and
save taxation. Do not our Counclimen
know that an "Acid Works," a short
distance above the proposed location,
pours its refuse into the river with such
effect that hempen cables kept in the
water in its vicinity are rotted or eaten
ant in a few weeks? The "works" and
drainage at Natrona poison the river at
that point, and it gets fouler all the way
down. We doubt if a - proper location
Gan be obtained short of the Youghio

Temperance and iletonn—Addreas to
TO the Voters of Allegheny County:—
VIMLOW CITIZENS: Some time ago a
Temperance and Reforni Convention was
convened in the. Court House, In the city
of Pittsburgh, which unanimously nom
inated Isaiah Dickey, Esq., for the office
of County Commissioner. to be voted for
at the coming October election. .That
Convention was not political in its char
acter, but was composed of men who felt
that something must be done, if possible,
to check the ravages of intemperance
among us. And as theexecution of the
license law has been placed in the hands
of our County Commissioners,and as we
felt that those already filling that office
have not carried out that law in its spirit
and intention, and as we were not Or
suaded that any condidate_pmented by
either of the political parties would
_carry out its provisions so •as to
improve this state of things, we
were constrained as law.ablding citi
zens to nominate a man who is known
to be honest and reputable in life. It is
proper to say that Mr. Dickey did not
and does not seek the office, but only
consents to the use of his name in the
hope that if elected he may be instru
mental in having our existing license
law faithfully and fully executed. It is
in no sense the aim of the present move
ment to do away with the existing law'
we recognize it as binding until annnileti
by the law making power of the State.
But we are persuaded that it has not
been properly executed. We moreover
feel that it would be to the interest of
men who vend ardent spirits under the
authority of a license to vote for Mr.
Dickey, for while he will not place him
self in the attitude that no licenses shall
be given while the law continues, he will
see that the cost of procuring a liceese
shall not be exorbitant. Hence, if placed
in the Board of _Commissioners, we feel
that it will be a
_decided benefit to all '
Mr. Dickey is not before yon as a poli
tician, but as an independent temperance
candidate, pledged to faithfully-execute
all laws that now exist or may exist for
the term of three years. He 18 not thrust
upon your attention with any design to
break up old political organizations, but
we are determined to let it be under stood
that we will no longer blindly follow the
lead of any political ring. As lovers of
good oraer, as those profoundly inter
ested in the well being of the county, we
demand that men of character shall be
nominated for office, else we will not sup
port them. And are we not right in this?
Is it not high time that something should
be done in this direction? Might not the
election of Mr. Dickey be of incalculable
benefit in the hereafter of our politidel
history as a county? Therefore, fellow
citizens, convinced that we have done
right, we earnestly appeal to you, no mat
ter to what party you belong, to aid ns in
the election of Mr. Dickey. We ask you to
seriously consider the matter and give
us vonr influence and votes in the, pre
mellon of a man to office whose integ
rity is undoubted. We feel that yon
owe it to yourselves and families
least I make the trial. The woes of
intemperance that have become so wide
spread in this community demand that
something should ba done, and that
promptly, lest they be still more aug
ment!. d and become quite universal. It
is wo th while sometimes to break o ff
from party for the sake - of a specific ob
)ect t at is good, and in this case we feel
that to do so would be - honorable, right
and praiseworthy. With us there is no
scramble for the spoils of office, bit an
earnest and determined resolution to se
cure reform.
