Enoch Arden in Pittsburgh.
From tho Pittsburgh Leader.
Pittsburgh lias now a real Enoch
Arden sensation. The parties connect
ed with tho affair are nil Pittitburgliera
and are quite well known here, which,
of course, makes it an item of more
than usual interest to our readers.
In the month of January, 186'2, a
young woman, named Miss Sarah P.
Voun, was married to Joseph M. Ab
bott, a young man who hnd gained a
local reputation as an amateur actor,
who lived in ono of the upper wards
l of the city. A few months after their
! : l l- .-j .1
marriage yvouon cijiiimcu iu hid aioiv,
in Company A. Une Hundred and
Ninth Pennsylvania Regiment, we be
lieve. The regiment, which was must
ered in Philadelphia, although a com
pany or two was organized in this city,
was sent to Harper s i erry and was at
tached to General (now Governor)
Geary's brigade. From llaper's Ferry
the regiment took the field actively.
Abbott corresponded with his wile up
till this time, but after that Mrs. Ab
bott failed to receive any lettors from
her husband. She made inquiry cou
cering him, but could get no informa
tion in regard to him, as the regiment
was constantly on the move she could
not reach it by letter. At length she
heard he was killed, unci, of course,
went into mourning over her dead hus
band. Some time after a young man,
named Thomas L. Williams, asked the
irivilcge of calling on Mrs. Abbott.
Ie paid considerable attention to her,
and at length asked her hand in mar
riage. She at first refused on account
of the mystery connected with her hus
band's fate. There could be no doubt,
however, from the report she received,
that her husbnd was dead, nnd she at
last consented to accept Mr. William's
proposal, and was married again. This
was in I860, four years after the depar
ture of her first husband for the wars,
Everything went on smoothly with the
new wedded couple, nnd prosperity
sec mod to hover about them. They
were blessed with three children as the
result of the union. Williams was
prospering nicely, and held the posi
tion ot a conductor on the 1 anhai.dle
Railroad ; a position, we believe, he
But the heaven of joy was one day
disturbed by the return of the first hus
band to this city. Abbott, instead of
being killed, as was reported, had pass
ed through the war safely, and had re
turned sound in body and spirit
About four or five months ago he re'
turned to this city. Imagine the as
tonishment of those when the reality
a pea red. The wife believed that her
first husband wns dead, and ho comes
home to find his wife wedded to anoth
er. His appearance caused a separa
tion all around.
Abbott refused to assume his station
as husband" when ho found that she
had wedded another, and Williams de
clined to remain with her when the
other husband had made his appear
ance. Williams accordingly left her,
leaving her their three childred to care
for, while Abbott retused to have any
thing at all to do with her.
J. he result of the whole aflair is that
a few days ago Mrs. Abbott-Williams
called on Brown & La in bio, attorneys,
and after consultation, decided to bring
suit against the second husband, Wil
liams, for the support of their children,
which he left iu her hands to care for,
as she alleges, without giving her any
means for the support of the children.
The suit was instituted before Alder
man Nicholson, who has held the case
for trial. Tho trial, when it comes up,
will doubtless be interesting in the ex
treme. Somebody bus given a droll para
phrase of George Washington and the
hatchet story. He says General But
ler and Wendell Phillips were in the
Garden of the White House waiting
to see the President. They were kept
there for some while, when Butler,
picking up a hatchet, began cuttiug
the trees to beguile the time. Grunt
soon after appeared, and asked, "who
has beeu hacking these trees?" But
ler answered, "I cuntiot tell a lie, Mr.
President; it was Wendell Phillips."

PA., TUESDAY, APRIL 11, 1871.
The Democratic pnrty is digging its
own grave as fast as it is possible for
any party to do. Every day, almost
every hour, the people are learning the
lesson, that notwithstanding nil its
promises and protests, it is still the
snme old revolutionary party that hiss
ed the loyal soldiers of the Govern
ment, and applauded the victories of
the Confederates. Whcrevei it lays
its hand, a law is violated. The few
successes it has gained within the past
year, have only enabled it to tench
the country its true character, and to
mark it as totally unfitted lor govern
ment. It has made no dill'urence where
those successes have been achievedthe
result has been, in every instance, the
malicious trampling upon all law,
peace, and good order. Whether we
turn to the South or to the North, suc
cess with that party bos secured the
same end. Whether we regard the
terrible increase of crime and murder
of loyal Southern men, or whether we
turn to Indiana, Pennsylvania or New
York, we seo the same malignant,
devclish spirit, prompting and ruling
In our own State the Democratic
Senate commenced with hip-h-handed
usurpations totally unknown heretofore
and to.duy, that same Senate is steal
incr money from the Treasury, and re-
Iusiitb to uo the ICKitunate worn that
belongs to that body. No less than
four weekly Calendars remain untouch
ed, and every effort to pass a bill or to
call it up, is defeated by a strict Dem
ocratic vote, lhe excuse given is on
ly commendable by reason of its un
blushing effrontery. The Senate Ap
pertionmetit bill, will not be pnssed in
the House. Because a separate and
distinct branch of legislation does not
choose to pass a bill originating in the
Senate, Democracy refuses to act on
any House bill, or indeed on any bill
at ull. Here is an effort to force the
House in rauvsurcs, and to do so, the
Senate moots dav after day, idles away
the time, and pockets the peoples
money. I his is Democracy. L.nW'
abiding, law-loving, constitutional De
mocracv. Its acts are as moral and
upright as a till-tappcr, and no more.
From present appearaces there will be
a rupture between the two Houses.
Heretofore the House lias gone on,
legitimately discharging its business,
acting on all tho bills, and has
beeu doing the best it could un
der the circumstances. We see, how
ever, that a caucus has been held, and
s Drue, kind of an agreement entered
into by the Republicans. What the
exact naturo of that agreement may
be we do not preteud to know, but that
it points towards retributive justice is
most certain. Democracy, heretolore,
could get its private bills passed
through. We see that Mr. Buckalew's
bill for cumulative voting in elections
of borough councils, managed some'
how or other to get through the Sen
ate, and to the House. The agreement
on the part of Republicans is iu all
probability, that in tho future the
llouso of Representatives will take
care of these bills, and that the cha'iee
so freely thrust upon Republicans, by
Democracy in the isenate, will be com
mended to its own lips. We are not
at all certain that even this retribution
is right and proper, but it seems to be
the only way to deal with men, who
have shown a total disregard for all
law, and a determination to force a
separate Legislative brunch, to favora
bly puss a Senate Apportionment Bill.
This Dead Lock iu the Legislature,
arising as it does among, aud being di
rectly chargeable to the Democrats of
the Senate, will rise in judgment
against them in the State hereafter,
Mr. Thomas Gill, a veteran news
paper reporter who died in Boston a
week or two ago, in his lifetime was
very fond of a joke, ami possessed a
keen sense of humor. Tho Washing
ton Chronicle gives an amusing in
stance of his drollery, 'lhe Hon. Rob
ert Rantoul, Jr., was delivering to an
immense audience nil oration a cele
bration ou Bunker Hill, in the course
of which he described with great pathos
and effect the famous battle which had
occurred ou the very spot where they
were assembled. As he resumed his
seat, Gill, who was seuted near him,
carelessly remarked, "My father was
iu the battle." Rantoul immedintely
sprang to his feet and announced this
fact, whereupon there were vehement
calls from the crowd fi r the sou of the
Revolutionary hero. Mr. Gill mod
estly rose, and after acknowledging the
vociferous cheers which greeted liim,
quietly informed his hearers that it
was true that his father was in the bat
tles of Bunker Hill, but he was fight
ing on the other side! The scene that
followed "beggared description." Mr.
Gill waa an Englishman by birth, and
one of the first professional reporters
who caine4o America.

A Very Remarkable Rat.
We often hear stories related of the I
wonderful cunning and knowledge of
the of the rat. but one is told savs '
the Ogdensburg (N. Y.,) Journal "of
a recent occurrence in which a real old ,
gray rnt whs the hero, nnd the incident
whereot took plaie in that city, which ;
is equal to the best. A lady who has
n number of fine hens, to which she
has devoted a good deal of care and
attention during the winter, in hopes
to obtain an early and a fair crop of
fresh eggs, was surprised at the mea-
gre result actually reached. The hens '
made noise, in singing and cacklug, i
enough for every day layers, and yet '
only occasionally did she get on egg.
lhe lady at length determined to
watch operations and ascertain if pos-
sible the cause of failure. She saw '
the hens go upon the nest, but if she I
was not present when they came ou no
egg was found. At length! constant
watching and waiting solved the mys-
tery. A day or two since, while on the
watch, a hen came off the nest and
commenced cackling. Almost instant
ly an old rat came out of a hole, and
running into a barrel, which was
thrown down upon its side, and in
which the hen's nest was, at once nosed
the egg out upon the ground, then laid
down upon its back and getting the
egg between its fore paws and nose,
commenced squealing, when two other
rnts came out and taking the rat with
the egg by the hind legs, dragged it.
egg and nil, into the hole. The lady
afhrms that she can substantiate the
foregoing fact by at least three living
witnesses. If any one can tell a more
remarkable rat story than this we
would like to hear it.

writing, called elegant, in which such
words as "moreover" nnd "carnivoi

them are represented by a mark like
the outline of a row of saw-teeth. You
can only guess them from the context, i

dinary topics, such manuscript can be
used, though it is always an annoyance.
But when proper names technical
terms are written in this way, it be

"You can uo more induce a telegraph
operator to forego his indulgence in
these and kindred blunders, than you
can coax, cajole, train, frighten, drive
or hire a provincial compositor to
spell tranquillity with & double ."
