Wapitis. Tha bar of Pittsburgh have heard with deep
and unfeigned sorrow of the death of Augustus R.
Washington, Esq., and
Rewired, That in his death this bar is deprived of an
upright, intelligent- accomplished and talented mem
ber, society of a useful and good citizen, and his family
of a kind husband and indulgent father.
Beratced. That we tender to his bereaved family our
sincere condolence in this sad hour, tulip conscious
that to them the loss is indeed irreparable, endeared as
he was to them by the amiability of his temperament.
and the beauty of los disposition, shown moat brightly
in the home circle.
Besoiredi That we wttl attend the funeral, and %tear the
usual badge of mourning.
Rasoked, That the officers of this ineetine he a com
mittee to communicate a espy of these resolutions to
the family of deceased.
Resolvei, That the Courts of this county be requested
to spread these resolutions on their minutes.
Air. Knox desired to add his testimony to
what had already been said relative to the good
qualities of the deceased, his character as
man, and his ability as a lawyer. He gave a
pathetic account of the evening preceding his
death, which he spent in his company, and
said that he died in the hope of a happy fu
Mr. Buckmaster followed in a like tribute
to the departed, after which the meeting ad
In the,United States Court the death of de
ceased was announced by United States Dis
trict Attorney Roberta. Ho was followed by
Judge ]'Candles, who stated that the Court
cordially responded to the eloquent and juiit
tribute paid by the District Attorney to the
memory of Mr. Washington. We knew him
well; he was a sound and discriminating law
yer, an urbane and accomplished gentleman,
and in all the relations of life a most estimable
citizen. All sympathise with the Bar in its
loss, and with his family in their great bereave
ment, and in testimony of the respect enter
tained by the Court for his memory, the Court
will slow adjourn.
Previous to adjournment the above resolu
tions were adopted.
In the Court of Quarter Sessions, Robert
Woods, Esq., announced Mr. Washington's
death, moved that the Court adjourn, and read
a copy of the above resolutions.
Mr. John H. Hampton paid an eloquent
tribute tO the character of deceased, with whom
he was intimately acquainted—his qualities as
a man, and his integrity as a lawyer. He said
that he had left on the records of this Court
many evidences of his skill and accuracy, and
that he was endeared to all who knew him.
He regretted that one so universally esteemed
should have been cut off in the very morning
of life, and trusted that when others were call
ed they might be as well prepared as the de
Mr. Marshall said he had the privilege of
knowing the deceased well, and he could say,
that in the sphere in which he moved he had
no superior as a lawyer—being always neat as
a penman, tasteful and accurate. As a man ho
was courteous, dignified, exact and accom
plished. When he entered the social circle,
he threw off his legal surroundings and shone
forth a bright ornament. To know him was
to love him dearly. Ho had known him long
end appreciated his worth, but had never
known him do anything which did not become
a high-minded man. He had no stormy power
of argument, but what was better, a quiet,
thoughtful appreciation of right, and the abili
ty to maintain it. He was a connexion of the
illustrious Washington family—and in all the
Tirtues which made that family so eminent, he
failed in none. He was graceful and and hap
py, kind in every relation of life—a tender
husband and an affectionate friend—and the
speaker was happy to bear testimony to his
Mr. Hopkins alluded feelingly to the latter
clays of his illness, and remarked that to the
last be had a kind word and a sweet smile for
C. M'Clure Hays, Esq., did,not wish to mul
words on this melancholy occasion, but
to add a few remarks. We are called upon, he
said, to deplore the death of no ordinary man
—one young in years, but old in every thing
which became a man. He was not of the
common herd—for moral worth, professsional
ability, and pure integrity, he stood, if not
alone, among those who stood above. He al
luded to hie social qualities, remarking that he
had been an associate of his—that in field
sports, on mountain or prairie, he was more
than a companion ; at the fireside, more than a
brother ; in the forum, more than a lawyer.
After an allusion to his lingering illness under
the fell disease to which he was a victim, and
his travels in hopes of regaining health, he
said that he was heartily glad to say that when
the summons came from the Court of Heaven
he was ready to answer—which he hoped might
be true of all of us—and that our end might be
Judge M'Clure said he knew and felt that
the remarks made by gentlemen of the bar
were true—they were not exaggerated. He
had lived a close neighbor to Mr. Washington,
and during the summer had spent every night
or two with him at his own request. The gen
tlemen of the bar, as well as the court, knew
119 w eminently feithfal and exemplary the
deceased had been in every relation of life—
as a son, husband, father, brother, lawyer, and
citizen. During the last four months he had
spent much time with the deceased—and it was
delightful to converse with him. The nearer
his approach to the consummation of all things
earthly, his mind brightened, and there was
an expressive precision in his ideas, which were
clothed in language no lees clear and excellent.
He knew that his end was approaching, and
looked at the grim tyrant Death with a calm
eye and smiling countenance—with that calm,
deliberate courage which, let us talk as we may
in our lighter moments—Christianity alone can
inspire. He had spoken seemingly cold and
distant—but it was under constraint—as he
feared to trust himself to express the emotion
which he felt at the death of this most excel
Judge Maynard remarked that although a
comparative stranger in the community, and
consequently without an acquaintance with Mr.
Washington, he felt that be could mingle his
sympathies with the Court, the bar, and the
family of the deceased. He alluded to the
praise bestowed upon his qualities, and his
untimely cutting off, and trusted that an with
in the sound of his voice might take the admo
nition and emulate his high virtues, so that
when others were called upon to speak of us
they might be able to deliver as sincere a eulogy
as had this day been spoken of the deceased.
The resolutions were entered upon the
minutes and Court adjourned.
Court of Quarter Sessions,
Before J udges M'Clure, Maynard and Parke
Mr. Frew handed in the resignation of
Daniel Kiel, Constable of Elizabeth township,
and also presented a petition of citizens for the
appointment of Bela Grimes in his stead, who
was accordingly appointed by the Court.
In the matter of the widening of Diamond
alley, E. H. Stowe, Esq., asked that the clerk
be directed to pay, out of money in his hands,
the costs of the petition, no provision having
been made for that purpose. The Court issued
the necessary order.
Final orders were granted in the application
of the German Roman Catholic St. Philomena
Beneficial Society of Pittsburgh, and the Ger
man Roman Catholic St. Peter's Beneficial
Society of M'Keesport, for charters.
A petition was presented, signed by one hun

Mr. Brown presented a petition for the assess
ment of damages on a road recently laid out in
West Deer township, which was filed.

A FIXED FACT.—There aro in this city a
number of business houses, in every depart
ment of trade, wholesale and retail, which it
not exactly "native and to the manor born,"
have been so long established that' they rank
amongst our city institutions. Among these
we may class the large and elegant establish
ment of L. Hirshfeld S: Son, at No. to; Wood
street, which has, since its erection and fitting
up by this firm, been a fashionable resort. We
have recently had the pleasure of inspecting the
stock of goods here collected, and we do not
wonder that such is the fact. We find here a
rare collection of gentlemen's furnishing goods
of every description and of the best quality,
shirts and collars of the latest and most ap
proved styles, cravat , , scarfs, shawls, hose,
drawers, and undershirts of wool, silk, linen
and cotton, gloves, and indeed all articles of
male apparel. The assortment of cloths, cassi
meres and vesting, plain and fancy, embracing
the newest and richest patterns, is worthy an
examination by all who desire to go well
dressed. These are made to order in the latest
and most fashionable styles, by a practical, ex
perienced tailor, Mr. Byrne, who always gives
satisfaction. Add to the above au endless va
riety of fancy goods, canes, umbrellas, pone
monaies, and you have as well stocked a
gentleman's furnishing establishment as can be
found in this city or the east, and no one need
want any article in this line if they will only call
at rfirstifeld's, where they will certainly find
it, and be waited upon, in addition, in a cour
teous,and obliging manner.
DP.. SCHENK IN THE ClTY—This celebrated
physician in diseases of the lungs and pulmo
nary organs, will be in Pittsburgh to-day in
the one o'clock train, and will remain until
Friday evening at the office of the Drug Store
of our friend Da. Dv, S. KEYSER, 140 Wood
street, to examine patients with diseases of
that kind; with his celebrated Respirometer,
an instrument of his own invention, by means
of which he is enabled todetect any form of lung
disease, from the slightest murmer to the most
extensive lesion, and in many cases can afford
relief, and cure in what might be supposed a
hopeless condition. No one, within the knowl
edge of the writer, has cured more cases of es
tablished pulmonary disease than Dr. Schenk.
We have seen them, and have conversed with
them, and know what we affirm. It is to be
hoped that no one who suffers with any disease
of the pulmonary organs will forego the pres
ent favorable opportunity to get relief. Dr.
Schenk is no charlatan in this matter, but has
cured hundreds of hopeless cases that were
abandoned as hopeless, and beyond the reach
of cure. Ho is himself a living example of
what his remedies and treatment will do, hav
ing been afflicted some twenty years ago with
a serious consumption, for which the best phy
sicians have been employed to no purpose, and
afterwarcicured himself with his own remedies.
We commend him to the confidence of all who
suffer with any of these diseases, and feel war
ranted in doing so from our own knowledge
of his abilities.
PROTHONOTARY'S OFFICE.—The office re•
cently fitted up in the Supreme Court room for
the use of the Prothonotary is exactly what is
needed. It is convenient to the court rooms,
well lighted and properly arranged for the safe
keeping of the records of the county. The fin
ishing of the room is complete and done in the
best style of workmanship. The room is large
and all the available space is occupied with the
necessary receptacles for documents, books, &c.
A platform, with a balustrade, extends around
two sides of the room, mid way between the coil
ing which is reached by a pair of steps, giving ac
cess to an upper teir of depositories, thus nearly
doubling the accommodations of the office.
Mr. Armstrong says be is not proud of his new
quarters, and will endeavor to receive those
calling on business as before, confident that his
new facilities will hasten transactions with
PROFESSOR GARDNER AND MS SOAP.—Pro
fessor Gardner has been so long in our city that
he is known to almost every man, woman and
child in the vicinity. He is yet to bo found at
the Girard House, from whence he is supplying
all who need his celebrated soap. On Friday,
we are informed, he visited the fair at Monon
gahela City, where he delivered to an assem
blage of three thousand persons, on the fair
ground, one of his characteristic speeches. He
offered one hundred dollars to any one who
would bring him a grease or tar spot which ho
could not remove. The soap was put to the
test in several instances, and came out triumph
ant, for though the Professor pocketed sundry
quarters, the soap did its work—and he still
has the one hundred dollar bill—which he of
fers as a standing reward.

poor house in Greene county, is being agitated

MISS ADA PLUNKETT.-To-night, this lady,
who has a wide spread reputation, both as au
thoress and actress, commences an engagement
at the Pittsburgh Theatre, and we predict that
it will be a successful one, for her talents,
added to the tact and enterprise of Manager
Howe, must make it so. She appears in the
character of Camille, in which she has won
much commendation, and will be well sup
ported by the stock company; "Three Fin
gered Jack " is also added to the bill. Mr.
Howe is determined to offer such attractions as
will make his Theatre both a popular and a
paying institution, and he is now in the full
tide of a well-deserved success.
ROBERT HOUDIN is without exception the
greatest necromancer of the present century.
His astonishing feats have been the wonder of
the world, even the Arabs, who have now lost
all faith in the miracles of the Marabouts. We
have just received, from Messrs. Hunt & Mi
ner, agents for the publisher, G. G. Evans,
Philadelphia, of gift-book notoriety, a copy
of the memoirs of this amba-qsador-author
conjuror, written by himself, and edited by R.
Shelton Mackenzie. It is a pleasant, readable
work, details many incidents of his chequered
life and wondrous exploits in the the field of
necromancy, with infinite humor, and L. just
the book for the fireside of a winter's evening.

ALLEUED AIIDUCTION.—On Friday, Alder
man Wilson issued a warrant for the arrest of
John Beatty, charged with the abduction of
Emma Dennison, daughter of Mr. W. Denni
son, a minor, under sixteen years of age. The
parties had been keeping company fur some
time, but the parents of the girl were opposed
to Beatty's visits, and forbid him the house.
This only strengthened the girl's attachment
for the young man, and a elandestine meeting
was held, at which flight was resolved upon,
which was accomplished on Thursday evening.
The twain have not since been beard of, and
are now, in all probability, one flesh.

A young man named John Ray, aged about
nineteen, was shot on Saturday night, while em

various rumors afloat concerning the circum

the particulars from a reliable source, and are
unwilling to give publicity to street reports,
we refrain from saying anything more upon
the subject at present.

Arrival of the Overland Mail—Death,
of Senator Broderick.
ST. Louts, October B.—The overland mail
of the 16th ultimo reached Jefferson City.
A duel took place between Senator Broder

cisco, on the morning of the 13th. Broderick
felt on the first fire, pierced through the lungs.
He lingered till half-past nine o'clock in the

profoundly agitated at the melancholy event.
Mr. Terry is unhurt.

Accident to the Quaker City
lionrot.K, Va., October 9 —The steamer
Quaker City, bound from New York to Ha
vana, with one hundred passengers, met with
an accident on the 7th instant, when fifty
miles south of Cape Hatteras, resulting in the
breaking of her engine. The boats were
manned, provisioned and equipped, in readi
ness to abandon the steamer, if found neces
sary. The bark Dumbarton, Captain Shad
burne, of Boston, came to the relief of the pas
sengers, and brought the greater portion of
them into Hampton Roads last night. Twelve
passengers and all the officers of the steamer
preferred remaining on board. The steamer
was last seen forty miles south of Cape Hat

WASHINGTON CITY, October B.—lnforma

of Col. Sumner will result in the capture of the
murderers, and the rescue of the passengers by
the over-due mail. It will probably be found
necessary to station troops at the Pawnee
Forks, to escort the mail thence to Cold Spring,

The Kalamazoo Ga:•rtte, in reviewing the

bus, Ohio, thus ably presents the issues in the
coming contest. Speaking of the speech it
It presents the issues which will enter into
tile coming contest with bold distinctness, and
with an energy peculiar to the "Little Giant "
of the West. No Democrat can read this speech
without thanking God that he belongs to an or
ganization which is pledged to vindicate the
right of the American People, whether they
dwell in the States or the Territories of this
Union, to control their own affairs according
to the dictates of their own good pleasure, with
out dictation from King or Congress, or any
other human power whatever. Such a doctrine,
so glorious in its expansive freedom; so grate
ful to the dignity of manhood; so promotive
of individual liberty; cannot buttind a response
in the depths of every intelligent freeman's
heart. It unshackels the mind ;'t nerves the
judgment; it elevates the manhood ; and it
makes the American citizen feel that he is the
arbitor of his own wants, and that no out
side power whatever, shall step between him
and his own good judgment, as to the laws and
institutions best adapted to his welfare as a citi
zen of the community in which ho has cast his
B. R. Harbours,
Capt. Alex. Hay.
It is upon this high declaration of the fun
damental rights of man, that Senator Douglas
goes before the American People as a candidate
for the Presidency. Re asserts and reiterates
the pledge, that it he be put in the position of
Chief Magistrate of this Union, the People of
every separate American community, so far as
he shall possess the power, shall have the full
est, fairest, freest, opportunity to make such
laws and regulations for their domestic govern
ment and welfare as they, in their own good
judgment, shall determine to be the best, wheth
er such PEOPLE live under a State or Territorial
organization ; and woo to the man or set of men
who shall attempt to interfere with this sacred
right. To the Northern Abolitionist as to the
Southern Propagandist, who should attempt to
wield the power of Congress to crush down the
right of American citizens to make their own
local laws, he would say with the voice and
and emphasis of another Jackson—" No : by
the Eternal ! the right of self-government is
sacred; and he who would lay a sacriligious
hand upon this common heritage of American
freemen, shall be branded as a traitor to the in
stitutions of his country.
Such is the position of Senator Douglas and
the Democratic party, in view of the approach
ing battle of 1860. There is no "uncertain
sound " in the proclamation. There is no mis
taking the inscription on the Democratic stand
ard. There can be no doubt as to the decision
of the American people, on th&simple issues
thus presented between the right of self-gov
erment, thus asserted, and the tyrannical inter
vention of Congress to strike down this'sacred
right as advocated by the leaders of the Repub
lican party. No man, having the soul of a
free man, will ever so vote as to deprive him
self or his fellow man, of the right to decide
what laws will best promote his domestic hap
piness and welfare. No man will so vote as to
say that Congress is a better judge of his pri
vate wants and wishes than he is himself. If
there be such a man he is a fitter subject for Rus
sian serfdom than for an America freeman.

DIRECTIONS FOR ITS USE
Go to a responsible dealer and obtain a good coal oil
lamp. Secure thin Inas, so that they will move readily
up and down in the tube. Trim the wick with sharp
scissors, exactly even with the top of the wick-tube,
clipping off the small projecting points at the corners.
Fill your lamp with our oil. 'Porn up the wick carefully
at first. su no not to crack the chimney.
A shade will greatly enhance its excellence for read
ing or sewing by.
By the careful observance of these directions, you will
secure a light that cannot fail to please.
Our facilities for refining are now very perfect and
complete, and having devoted a great deal of laborious
attention to the art, we hare succeeded in producing an
article of the very best quality, to which we invite the
especial attention of the trade. All orders will be filled
at the lowest rates.
