at Saw Mill Rim, between Thomas Ca

Master Mechanics Take a Railroad Ride
—lu Coat Mines—At Cambria Iron
Works Altoona Shops New Car
Saturday the Master Mechanics attend
ing the meeting of their Association in
the city, were treated by the Pennsyl
vania Railroad Company to an excursion
to Altoona. For this occasion the regifu
lar Walls Accommodation was approp
ated, with a view of giving the excur
sionists an opportimity to witness the
workings of the patent car brake which
has been in use on that train for some
time. There were live passenger and one
baggage (or refreshment) car, with
engine 360. Richard Clay engineer, and
Henry Mclntyre fireman. The conduc
tor having charge was James Dinwiddie.
At six o'clock and thirty minutes, the
time designated, there were assembled
at the Union Depot the entire delega
tion of Master Mechanics—a few of
whom were accompanied by ladies—resi
dent manufacturers, agents of others,
citizens of leisure and a fair representa
tion from the city Press, the guests, num
bering one hundred and fifty, more or
less.• The railroad attaches accompany
ing the party were Robert Pitcairn, Sup
erintendent, J. McC. Creighton General
Agent, D. 0. Shafer, master mechanic,
R. S. Ramsey, foreman of car shops, all
of the Pittsburgh division, D. M. Garrett,
master mechanic, W. F. Rich, foreman
of the car shops, of Philadelphia divi
sion, and I. W. Vanhouten, general over
seer of car department.
A necessary and very appreciable
adjunct to the excursion was the Great
'Western brass band, which discoursed
good music, but not very much of it.
The train got off in duo time, and after
a short stop at East Liberty, to complete
the patent brake appliances, went speed
ing on, the majority of the excursionists
for the first time witnessing the complete
governing of a train without brakemen,
the engineer alone controlling, checking
up much quicker and entirely without
that jarring and rasping noise usual with
the present braking appliances in
general use. This was so manifest as to
be the subject of much remark• and the
excursionists watched the working of the
new invention with great interest.
THROUGH A COAL MINE.
Reaching Larimer's, it was announced
as part of the programme that the mines
of the Westmoreland Coal Company
would now be visited, and accordingly
the grade to the mouth of the dismal pit
was ascended. Here was in waiting a
train of pit cars, divided into sections of
four, •each headed by a mule. After a
little delay in arranging seats for the
ladies of the party, we embarked and
under the guidance of miners made the
trip through the mountain, the dis
tance passed under ground being
about one mile and -a half. Again
taking the train, in waiting near the
point of emergence, the journey was
resumed, and none other than necessary
stops made until Johnstown was reached,
where 'a hasty visit was paid to the •
CAMBRIA IRON WORKS.
Here the party were met by two other
railroad attaches, A. J. Cassett, Superin
tendent of motive power and machinery,
and Mr. Woradell, located at Altoona.
The party passed through the puddling
department and rail mill of the exten
sive works, which cover five acres of
ground and give employment to about
three 'thousand men and boys. The ob.
ject of greatest interest seemed to be a
huge upright engine in the paddling
mill, the cylinder of which is thirty in
ches five feet s troke, with a fly wheel
thirty feet ono inch in diameter and
weighing fifty-six tons. The engine is_
classed as three hundred and fifty horse
Hon. D. J. Morrell, of the firm of
Wood, Morrell & Co;,-proprietors of the
works, was present and extended a cor
dial greeting to the excursionists, re
gretting that time , did not permit a long
ON FOR ALTOONA.
Again embarking, the remainder of
the trip to. Altoona was devoted to the
enjoyment of the rare mountain scenery.
At the Horse Shoe Bend,where the grade
is ninety-six feet to the mile, the new
brake was put to a seyere test, the train
in descending at fair headway being
brought to a full stop in a space of
420 feet. A little way beyond this
point the passengers disembarked, and
witnessed fkom the opposite track a
test of the brake, demonstrating, if pos
sible. its advantages more satisfactorily:
' All on board again, in a brief spell we
came to the
POINT OF DESTINATION,
the flourishing city• of Altoona, the ppre•
else time of arrival being one o'clock
and fifteen minutes. After a vigorous
washing of faces and hands and brushing
of clothing, the excursionists eagerly
awaited the call for lunch at the Logan
House. It soon came, and never was
there a meal more welcome or partaken
of with more zest. Cheese and oFackers
were dispensed in abundance on the
train during the `trip out, but these,
while they may have allayed, by no
means satisfied the appetites sharpened
by the ride.
THE COMPANY SHOPS.
A visit to the shopxof the Penneylva.
nia Railroad Company , was next in
order. The excursionists, under the
lead of Messrs. Casiiett and Woradell,
proceeded thence and rather hastily
viewed the different departments. These
shops have been Often, fully describ
ed by the press, and 4 e do nnttpropose
to attempt anything Of the kind on this
occasion. Suffice it to say that the main
portion of the work of the Company is
performed in them,Land nowhere else
can there be found finer machinery of
all sorts requisite in the building or re
pairing of locomotives, or in furnishing
other railroad appliances.. Among the
latest machines introduced is one from
the works of Lewis,; Oliver & Philips, of
our city, by which all kinds of bolts,
from the smallest np to an inch, can be
made at the rate of from 1,500 to 4,000 a
THE OAR BRAKE
Was again put to several tests in front of
the Logan Hopse, just prior to starting
od the return trip, and here we may
speak with more particularity concern
ing the invention. There is on the loco
rnottve, under the foot board, a reser
voir supplied with compressed air by an
auxiliary pump. which is the power that
works the brakes. Under each car
there is a cylinder, the piston of which
works the ordinary Mind brake. Be
tween each car is a coupling, with the
valves so arranged that when the coup
ling is togther there is a free sir passage,
and when uncoupled these valves el
and prevent the escape of air from th
pipes. On the engine there is a thre
way cock, which alone works the brak
and the engineer can apply any degre
of potver he sees fit by letting in more or
less air. George Wentingbouse, Jr., and
Ralph Bataley are the patentees.
THE TRIP ise,mr.
At 'precisely half-past three the train
moved off from Altoona for the return
trip, and the excursionists, many of them
being thoroughly tired out, disposed
themselves' as comfortably as possible
about the train, apparently with a cola-
mon - design to take it easy going home.
Good time. sometimes very fast+forty
miles an hour at least—Was made. and
Union depot reached at 7:3, in about.
lour ouning time.
• At Derry, on the home trip, tbe
sionists went forward to the refreshment
car to pay their respects to the accom
plished caterer, Mr. R. S. Rams y, and
while the lunch was being part ken of
a meeting was organized, with. Ms. Sell
ers, of the Des Moines Valley RMlroad,
as Chairman and Mr.

A dispatch from Williamsport, Pa., in
forms us that this interesting case came
before His Honor, Judge McCandless, on
a bill filed by holders of acholarahips,
citizens of West Virginia, and was ably
argued there - on the 15th and 16th inst.;
upon a motion fokt o3 l preliminary injunc
tion, by Messrs. trait and Veech for the
motion, and Ache n and Wilson contra.
On Saturday morning, the 18th, Judge
McCandless made an order granting the
injunction, the import of which is -to
prevent the removal of any of the Pro
fessors,/ classes an property of the Col
lege from Canon urg to Washington,
(except the cl , dtc. removed there
prior to Februa ry 26, 1869,) and to forbid
the. Treasurer o the united Colleges
from receiving a funds which had be
longed to Jailer n College until the
further order of the Court. The ques
tion of the constitutionality of the acts of
Assembly of Pennsylvania relating
to the removal of March 4, 1865,
and February 26, 1869, are reserved until
final learning of the whole case. In the
mean time as we learn, this preliminary
injunction es all the friends of the College
at Ctumonsburg asked, as its effect is to
keep things as they were prior to the
late act for the removal. We presume,
therefore, that Professors Jones-and Linn
and the classes hitherto instructed by
them, will remain at Cannonsburg, and
render the election of a President and
Vice President, by the:Board, void, which
will leave the institution without a Pres
ident, Rev. Dr. Edmonds having resign

We had the pleasure on Saturday of
receiving a friendly visit from Mr. H. H.
Hall, the accomplished and highly edu
catedof the ylvania Institu
tion for ge
the blindPenns at Philadelphia. It
will be remembered that this college for
those so unfortunate as to be deprived
of God's great gift, the sight, is calculated
to teach all the useful and ornament al
branches of education, and fit its scholars
for many positions in active life. In ad
dition to the Mechanical departments,
already wider successful operation, there
has recently been established a printing
dep trtment, which is in charge of Mr..
Hall, who comes hither, we believe, to in.
terest the philanthroplcin the great work.
There is au much in favor of the project
`of furnishing books and music or the
blind, printed in raised letters So that
it can be read by the touch, that we feel
that it is scarcely necessary to urge our
readers to respond generously to the call
made on their charities by Mr. Hall for
that branch of the Institution. He has,
himself, been totally blind since coming
out of the recent war, and being a busi
ness man of thorough knowledge and
training, his management of the printing
bureau cannot fail to prove !successful,
and fully meet the requiremetits of the
afflicted whose - -benefit and pleasure he
, has next and nearest his heart.
A cutting affray occurred on Fifth ave
nue Saturday evening about eight"
o'clock, in which William Wells. a
'lour" printer, was the principal actor.
Mr. Wells is a member of the Typo.
graphical Union of this city and was re.
(*nay employed in a newspaper of ice.
when there was a strike, and the pro.
prietora of the paper, rather than submit
to the unreasonable demands of the
'‘Union side," wentout of , it, and
as a consequence, the "Union"
hands, among whom was Wells, whose
places were filled by other men, b
angry and swore vengeance. At
stated two printers, not members of the
Union, were passing along Fifth avenue,
and in front of the Atlantic Telegraph
office met Wells, who, they allege, made
an assault upon them with a knife.
Charles Hubbard, one of the men, was
cut on the head and received a severe
gash in the hand while warding off a blow
aimed at his breast. Homer D. guest,
of Newcastle, who accompanied Mali re
• calved a alight ant on the cheek. Wells,
It appears, was intoxicated. Hubbard
made information before the Mayor yes.
terday morning, charging Wells with
felonious assault and battery, and a war
rant was issued for his arrest.
Officers Moon, Dressler and Cupps on
Saturday evening arrested Samuel Mat
tis and Samuel G. Pilgrim on a charge of
burglary. It appears that the accused
were confederates of Samuel Gibson, an
account of whose doings we published
on Saturday. After returning from the
Work House with Gibson, who was
brought for a hearing before the Mayor
on a charge of burglarY, the officers
named visited the house of Mrs. Hamil
ton, where they bad reason to believe
that some of the clothing stolen from
Mr. Ruths, on Penn street, some weeks
since, was secreted. They searched the
house and found four coats, aiavests, five
pair of pants and seven shirts, a part of
which was hidden in the bed occupied by
Mrs., Hamilton. They were about to
leave the premises when Mattis and Pil
grim came in, one of them having
on his person one of the stolen
vests and the other a shirt.
They were taken in custody and
conducted to the lock-up,. where they
were searched, when upon one of them
was found, a knife and in the pockets of
the other a key and some money that
bad had been taken from the store of
Mr. Samuel Warren, near the corner of
Wylie and Fulton streets, which was en
tered by burglars Friday night and forty
five dollars in cash, a dirk knife, key,
and other articles stolen.
In addition to the charge against Gib
son by Mr. Roth, Mr. Hartney, of Alle
gheny, whose shoe store was burglar
lousily entered a few week since, made in
formation against him for burglary, a
pair of the boots being found on his feet.
Mr. Warren will make information
against Pilgrim and Wattis this morn
ing. Five of this gang of burglars are
now in custody, and the officers named
deserve great credit for the manner in
which they have managed the case.
Bank President and Director Elected.
At a meeting of the Directors of the
Farmers Deposit National Bank, held on
Saturday, at the banking house on
Fourth avenue, William Walker, Esq.,
was elected President of that institution,
vice Tames Marshall, Esq., deceased.
Mr. Walker has been long and favorably
known in these cities as an upright, hon•
est and successful merchant, as well as a
gentleman of substantial wealth and
great financial ability. He is eminently
qualified to become the successor
of the late Mr. Marshall, who
Held the position for nearly thirty years,
and was acknowledged to be one of the
best financiers in the country. Mr. Wal
ker is a member of the well known firm
of Bryce, Walker Sc Co. and William et
H. Walker. His electi on cannot fail to
be satisfactory in every. respect to the
stockholders, as would indeed, the elec
tion of any of the other highly respect
able and distinguished gentlemen, whose
names have been mentioned so promin
ently in connection with the position.
At a recent meeting, Mr. James Mar
shall, Jr., son of the late President, was
elected a Director. This was a hand
some compliment to the dead, and a well
merited honor as bestowed on the living.
As our readers are well aware, Frank
L. Stephenson, Esq., is Cashier of this
long established and successfulinstitu
tion. Although young in years, Mr.
Stephenson has discharged the duties of
his position with eminent ability, and
we do not know that he has many, if any
superiors in the banking business.
Confidence Betrayed—Alleged Heavy
Saturday afternoon officer Blondin, of
Alderman McMasters' police, arrested
Thomas Dowling, porter in Henry &
Nichols' shoe store, No 48 Wood. street,
for an alleged robbery of his employer.
It seems the firm missed a lot of their
stock lately, and from circumstances
were led to believe thit Dowling was the
party interested in taking them away.
To investigate the matter tney had a
search warrant issued by , Alderman Mo.
Masters, and the premises of the suspect
ed party, in Alleaheny, searched, which
resulted in the discovery of a lot of the
