Sunday Observance—Bearing of 'the Car
riage Drivers.
On Monday morning at ten o'clock the cases
of James Nesmith. driver for John T. Logan,
and Jacob 02sterlie, driver for Hon. Walter
Lowrie, charged with following worldly em
ployment by driving their respective carriages
to church on Sunday, October 2d, came up for
hearing. The former, with Mr. Logan, was
present, and Mr. James A. Lowrie, son of the
Judge, appeared in behalf of his driver.
The latter case was first taken- up. Officer
Reed testified to having seen the carriage at the
Second Presbyterian church, when he took the
name 'of the driver and the owner of the car
riage. Mr. James A. Lowrie testified that
Desterlie was employed by his father, who lives
three miles from the city, as a gardner, to work
about the horses, and to drive the carriage.
He was employed by the month. It was cus
tomary for him to drive the carriage to town,
leave the family at the church, drive the car
riage to the nearest livery stable, and then, if
so 'disposed, go to church himself. On the day
in question Mr. and Mrs. McClurg, Mrs. Low
rie and witness were in the carriage, and were
driven to the Second Presbyterian church,
their regular place of worship.
Mr. Lowrie held that this came under the
exception of the Act of Assembly, being a work
of necessity and charity. In support of this
view he quoted from a decision ' , of Judge
Woodward in the case of Johnson vs. the
commonwealth, in 10th Harris, where an om
nibus driver was brought up for driving his
vehicle on Sunday :
" It is apparent from these authorities, as
well as from the whole history of the instituted
Sabbath, and particularly from the preamble
to our old Act of 1705, fully quoted in the
commonwealth vs. Omit, that rest and the pub
lic worship of Almighty God, were the primary
objects of the institution, both as a divine and
civil appointment; and it seems to me to fol
low, as a necessary consequence, that no means
reasonably necessary to these ends can be re
garded as prohibited. Heneb, if an invalid, or
a person immersed for sit days within the close
walls of a city, requires a ride into the country
as a means of recuperation, which is the true
idea of rest, there is nothing in the Act of 1794
to forbid the employment of a driver, horses
and carriage on Sunday to accomplish it.—
Equally lawful is the employment of the same '
means to go to the church of one's choice, or to
visit the grave of the loved and the lost to pay
tribute of a tear. In a very high sense,
and perfectly compatible with the statute, these
are works of necessity and charity, and had
this defendant shown that he was merely en
gaged in accomplishing them, he ought not to
have been convicted.
In the case of James Nesmith, driver for
John T. Logan, similar testimony was given,
and the Mayor adjourned the cases until Wed
nesday at two o'clock fur further hearing, when
be will give a decision.
The case of Thomas Mellordy, driver for
ReV. T. B. Lyman, was postponed until Mon
day, October 24th, that gentleman being absent
from the city.
FATAL ACCIDENT. —On Saturday afternoon,
an accident, resulting in the instant death of
one person and the serious injury of another,
occurred in Moon township. Mr. James M.
Walker, a gentleman of about twenty-eight, and
Miss Susan Ballou, about eighteen, daughter
of Mr. A. Ballou, doing business in this city,
but who resides in Moon townsnip, started
from the residence of the latter, in a buggy,
to attend church at Middletown. They took
the Clinton road, and while rapidly driving
down a hill, a part of the gearing gave way.
and the wheels of the buggy falling into a rut,
the vehicle was thrown forward, and both its
occupants precipitated over the dash-board.
Mr. Walker was picked up dead, his neck broken.
Miss Ballou was much bruised and injured
about the face, and swooned away. She was
taken un, insensible, and conveyed home,
irhen Liry bloCool: was called upon to attend
her. Yesterday she was thought to be out of
danger, though her condition, during the night,
from the fright and the severe shock to the
system, had been considered critical. Coroner
Bostwick was called upon and held an inquest
on the body of Mr. Walker, the jury returning
verdict in accdidance with the above facts.
quently spoken of the necessity of a night po
lies in Allegheny city, for though the citizens
generally are quiet and orderly, a spirit of
rowdyism sometimes breaks out and runs ram
pant, which requires prompt and efficient
means to stop. Saturday night especially
seems to be the favored time for the law
breakers to go forth. On last Saturday night
a row occurred in the Fourth ward, at a beer
hall, when it was announced that some one
was being stabbed, and an officer interfering,
received a cut in the hand, and one man whom
he bad arrested escaped. On the same night
one man stilt* another with a " handy billy,"
and was himself terribly beaten and bruised by
the friends of the attacked ; and a house on
Lacock street was entered, and robbed of two
coats. Such a state of affairs demands a prompt
remedy, and we see nothing more effectual
than the appointment of a night police, if
nothing more than a patrol. The citizens de
sire it, and are willing to bear the burden of
taxation for protection to their lives and prop
SERIOUS ACCIDENT.—Last evening, about
seven o'clock, a lad of twelve or fourteen years,
eon of Mr. David Stratburger, dry goods mer
chant, corner of Market and Fourth streets,
met with a very serious accident at the store of

Arrest of Counterfeiters in Steubenville.
The Steubenville Herald of Saturday says
We stated in yesterday's Herald that Stephen
Liggett, (formerly landlord of the Washing
ton Hall, this city), but who has been morere
cently located at Shanghai, and a man by the
name of Samuel Conn, Elliottsville, were ar
rested Wednesday, and lodged in jail in this
city yesterday, on charge of making and vend
ing counterfeit coin. To-day we added two
more names to the party—Charles Goucher, of
Newburg, and B. Frank Shane, of Shanghai.
They were arrested yesterday and imprisoned
to-day, chiefly through the vigilance of Mayor
Oliver, assisted by officers Cable, Gilmore, My
ers and Campbell. Shane belongs to a very
respectable family of this county; of Gouch
er's antecedents we know nothing. In per
sonal appearance he is not very prepossessing
—sports a beard of inordinate dimensions,
which he ties up after the style groomsmen tie
up horses' tails in muddy weather. These
men are supposed to have been connected
with Sutcliff & Co., previously arrested in this
city, and who are now in jail awaiting their
trials before the United States Court in Cleve
—Since the above was in type, Israel Wy
and, Harlem Springs, Carroll county, (Justice
of the Peace), and Thomas Maple and Vin
cent Suttle, of this county, have been brought
into town and imprisoned, on charge of mak
ing and passing counterfeit coin. We under
stand that spurious specie in large quantitise
was found about the premises of Justice Wy
and. This makes ten now in jail on charge of
passing counterfeit money.
The First Iron House--It Is taken down to
be put up again
The first iron house built in New York was
recently removed with but little of the trouble
and confusion which usually accompany the
tearing down of brick and mortar. The Sin,
of the Times thus records its demolition :
Nearly opposite our printing office in Cen
tre street, is, or rather was standing, until a
day or two ago we believe, the first iron build
ing ever erected in the United States. It was
put up a few years ago, and has always been
used by Mr. Bogardus as his work-shop for
doing thelighter work of his heavy business.
While the brick buildings in the neighborhood
are torn down end ruined to make way for the
widening of Duane street, Mr. Bogardus went
quickly to work and took down his four-story
property, doing it without dust or noiss. and
with no injury to the material, and in a few
days it will again rear its front in some other
part of the city. When Mr. Bogardus erected
this building it was predicted that the frost
getting in the iron would crack the foundations
and topple it down ; the building. however.
has stood firm to the time hefts removal, never
starting a hair's breadth.
This distinguished physician, for the treatment
of lung, liver and dyspeptic diseases, has ar
rived in the city, and will remain during the
whole of this week to consult with patients in
regard to those ailments with which an experi
ence of over twenty years has made him per
fectly familiar. N - 0 man with wham we are
acquainted has a higher reptutation, or a more
deserved one, than Dr. Schenck. After curing
himself of a lung disease, which bathed the
skill of the ablest physicians of Philadelphia,
he has ever since devoted his attention to the
cure of his fellow creatures, and you can find
in every street of Philadelphia some one who
has been restored to health and prolonged life
by his skill and attention. Dr. Schenck is the
inventor of the instrument called Respirator.
which is so constructed as to enable him to
point out the exact condition of the lungs, and
apply a proper remedy, when a cure can be
expected. Dr. Schenck may be consulted any
time during the day or evening at the office of

Miss ADA PI UNKETT —This lady, who
made her first appearance at the Pittsburgh
Theatre last night, in the character of Camille,
which she played admirably, appears this
evening in a character which has heretofore
received little attention, that of Emelia, in
Shakspeare's great tragedy of Othello. The
piece is well cast, with Miss Frost as Desde, Mr. Cooke as Othello, and Mr. Howe
a- lago, and we are sure it will attract a large
audience, for, if we mistake not, Miss Plunkett
will be a favorite and receive a liberal patron.

NEW BOW BOAT.—The Undine Barge Club

It arrived at the outer depot on Saturday, was

We have not yet seen the craft, but she is said
to be extremely light, and a model for speed,
having been constructed in New York to order.
As soon as the new boat is painted and equip
ped, we may expect to see a challenge from the
Undine Club, and though the season is nearly
over, we may still have one more exciting race.
The Port Perry crew have been in training
for some time, and are doubtless prepared to
make fast time with the new craft
THE Kush HOUSE.—The residents in the
upper part of the city who wish to indulge on
fine fat oysters, or any other delicacy of the

lishment is neat and clean, and the eatables
and drinkables are of the best quality. The
Rush House is conveniently located for persons
who may have business at the railroad depots,

cure a hasty meal.

The Terry and Broderick Duel
CINCINNATI, October 10.—The San Fran
cisco of the:l4th, says: In accordance
with anticipations, the expected, duel between
Terry and Broderick took placeyesterday morn
ing, in Snail Valley, ten miles from Merced
Lake. The parties went out of town the
night previous, and passed the night in separ
ate localities. At a quarter past six o'clock in
the morning Broderick and Terry arrived on
the ground, attended by their seconds and phy
sicians, the Hon. J. C. 111.T.ibben and Mr.
Coulter for Broderick, and Calhoun Benham
and Thomas Hays for Terry. On descending
from their carriages the parties seemed to be in
the best of spirits, neither appearing anxiiiu•
or nervous as to the result. About half an
hour was occupied in making the arrange
ments. Ten paces were marked off, and the
principals took their positions. The seconds
divested them of their outside coats. white
collars, and other articles which might pre
sent prominent targets, and also their watches
and coin in their pockets. One of the seconds
then read aloud the code duello, which occupied
a short time. Mr.Coultar then addressed the two
gentlemen, saying it was to be understood that
he should count one. two, after the word tire,
after which he would ray, stop: no shot inert

with composure to these detail, Judge Terry
stood with hi= head thrown slightly back, look

in band, pointed to the ground Each were
dressed in black, and wore a slouched hat.
Broderick stood erect, but his head was held
rather down. The positions of the two were
somewhat different. Judge Terry maintained
that of a practical duellist, presenting only the
edge of his person. keeping the left hand and
shoulder well behind hini. Broderiek. on the
contrary, though at first assuming a position

gradually presented,more of his body to the

awkwardly, and seeming to feel this himself.
once or twice turned the wrist of his pistol
arm to the right, with his left hand, as though
endeavoring to comply with some prescribed
directions previously given him. From that
time he did not raise his eyes until word was
given to fire Once his right foot got a frac
