Court of Quarter sessions.
Before Judges Af.'Clure, and Parke.
TrE , DAT, Uctober 18th, 1.800
Commonwealth vs. John Nichols. who plead
guilty to selling liquor without license at the
negro celebration at Breed's grove on the Ist
of August last The Court imposed a fine of
SlO and costs.
Commonwealth Y 1 Thomas Jones, indicted
for assault and battery with intent to kill, on
oath of John Hoffman. Jones was a stramzer.
and while, as is supposed, be was suffering from
an attack of mania potu, he dew at the prosecu
tor, and tried to cut him with a knife, in his
garden near McKeesport, Hoffman having
ordered him out while destroying his vegeta
bles. Under the instructions of the Court, the
jury found a verdict of agtrayated assault and
battery. _ .
Commonwealth Da71.1 Robinson, Eliza
Robinson and Maria Parsons. charged with as
sault and battery,on oath of Elizabeth Manning.
The parties live in South Pittsburgh, and had
a difficulty arising out of the frequent visits of
James Parsons, :son 01 on.• of the defendants,
to the house of the proseeutrix, during_ which
the latter swore that the man Robinson 1-sicked
ner, while his wife and Mrs Parsons pulled
her hair and scratched her face, and otherwise
abused her. For the defence it was urged that
the prosecutrix had endeavored to cajole him
into a marriage, which so excited the indigna
tion of the mother that she visited the house
to seek her son, and believing that Mrs. Man
ning was endeavoring to lead him irom the
path of duty, scratched her face. Mrs. Par
sons plead guilty, and was tined six and one
fourth cents and costs; the others were tried,
and the jury found a verdict of not guilty de
fendants to pay the costs.
Commonwealth vs. John and Robert Ma
guire, indicted for assault and battery on oath
of Eberhart H. Dierker. The prosecution or
iginated in a difficulty about toll on the Pitts
burgh and Greensburgh Plankroad, in which
the prosecutor alleged that both defendants,
father and son, struck him. It was shown,
however, that the son only struck him. The
jury found a verdict of not guilty as to John,
and guilty as to Robert Maimire, and defend
ants to pay the costs
Commonwealth vs. John Brady indictment,
assault and battery with intent to kill, on oath
of Mrs. Jane Chambers, wife of Joseph Cham
bers, of Allegheny. The evidence showed that
on the night of the 2i'dh of July last, prosecu
trix was passing along East Common. Alle
gheny, in the vicinity of Ohio street, with her
husband and sister-in-law, when they were ac
costed by defendant, a young man, who used
grossly insulting language. Mr. Chambers re
monstrated with him, and they canie to blows,
when Brady picked up a boulder trom the
street and threw it, striking Mrs. Chambers
on the bead, injuring her very severely, re
quiring the services of a physician, and endan
gering her life Several a anises testified that
defendant threw the stone, being intoxicated
The evidence for the defence was unimportant.
Judge M.'Clure, in charging the jury. said the
case was an important one ; that a respectable
female had been knocked down on the public
street, in a crowded street, at an early hour of
the night. It was necessary that the law
should protect citizens, and females especially;
if it did not, the law would not hold the hus
band responsible if he administered summary
vengeance. The jury found a verdict of guilty,
and the prisoner wan remanded for sentence.
Commonwealth vs. John Hively indicted
for nuisance, in loosely burying a horse which
be had killed, near the public highway, in Pitt
township, in last July, after allowing the car
aims to die in the hot :inn for at least twenty
four hours. The evidence for the prosecution
was to the effect that the odor emitted from the
body, before and after burial, was noxious,
disagreeable, and a serious annoyance to the
neighbors in the vicinity. For the defense,
several witnesses testified that they were not
annoyed by the effluvia. The Court will
charge the jury in this case this. morning.
►'he Lost; of the Marengo%
We announced in °Ur telerr e f, column f
Monday, the sinking of the steamer Marengo
below St. Louis. From the Republican of
Monday, we clip the following, giving the par
ticulars of the disaster
"The officers of the steamer Minnehahs,
which arrived from :New Orleans Saturday
morning, informs us that the steamer Maren
go, Captain McOaLLum, bound from Pitts
burgh for this port, with a large assorted car
f,-e, struck a snag sod sunk at Rozier's Land
ing, seventy miles below this city. The acci
dent occurred at 4 o'clock, ?. g., on Friday.
The officers of the I.i,innehalia saw the Maren
go strike, and soon ascertained that she was in
trouble. The Minnehaha, being about a mile
behind, soon came up, and was hailed by the
Marengo for assistance
The sinking boat was run out on a bar on
the Illinois shore, and was a considerable time
in fluffing a resting place on the bottom, which
proves that the break in her 'hull cannot be
very large. She struek forward of the boilers
on the starboard side, and eventually settled
down in nine feet water astern, and seven feet
at her bow.
She lies perfe-tiy straight, and, it is thought,
can be raised without difficulty. The 31:inne
haha took off her passengers—about forty in
number, cabin and dccii—and twenty head of
isorsee to five Wagons—all of which were
o,llded here in safety. A large amount of
iuoving plunder was also sayed and brought up
by the Minnehaha.
Capt. 3rCALL'int entered protest at St. Ma
ry's, and came up to the city to procure lum
ber, &c., for the purpose of constructing bulk
heads. He is of bpinisn that the boat can be
raised by her own pumps.
The other officers and craw of the Marengo
remained, and are engaged in saving the
freight. The Marengo was four years old,
just off the ways, where she had, been thor
oughly repaired, was owned py Captain Mc-
CALLUM and others of Pittsburgh, was worth
about $16,000, and insured for $lO,OOO in
Pittsburgh offices The freight list was not in
The insurance here is SC,OOO in the Eure4
and $4,000 in the Aionongahela. She left
here on the 6th, with ,ome l' A 've hundred tons
of freight, which was insured here, though to
what extent we are unable to state

—We had the pleasure of examining, yester
day, a new Sewing Machine, recently intro
duced in this city, which may be seen at No.
51 Fifth street, at the scale ware rooms of
Messrs. Fairbanks & Ewing. It is the Will
cox & Gibbs Sewing Machine, which has met
with great favor in the East. and to which was
awarded the first premium at the late State
Fair held in Philadelphia. The invention is
a recent one, having been patented in July,
1857, and combines six patents, owned by Elias
Howe. Jr., in the Wheeler & Wilson Manu
facturing Co., I M. Singer & Co., and the
Grover & Baker Sewing Machine Co It is a
single thread machine, with the loop or chain
stitch, which is so arranged by an ingenious
revolving looper that the needle must always
pass through it, thus forming a seam that can
not be pulled apart by any strain, however
violent, even if the goods be cut and the stitches
separated. The tension is difforent from any
other the thread being drawn from the spool.
standing upright and on an axis, leaving the
thread loose, until it passes into the perpendic
ular needle bar, when it is drawn tightly
through the fabric, while at the time the clack
thread is required there is little or no tension.
The machine will make tour thousand stitches
per minute, with no possibility of missing a
I single one, is self feeding, will do any kind of
work rapidly and well, and is sold at the low
price of 530 An examination will convince
any one of its many advantages, and we advise
l all to call and see one in operation. The Corn
mittee on Sewing Machines at the exhibition
of the Franklin Institute. 183:3, placed this
machine first in order of merit in the list of
single thread machines

don] that a candidate for public favor, before
our almost hypercritical Pittsburgh audiences,
becomes so prominently popular as Mr. Geo.

dering himself But his taler,t.s are of such a
character as to entitle him to the high reputa

preciated here. On Monday night. on the ac

of persons left the hall, unable to find seats,
and last evening, when be gave an Evening

really an excellent one and the audience re

HARPER'S FERRY, October ltitti.-6 o'cleck.
--The armory has just been stormed and taken
after a determined resistance. Col. Shutt ap
proached with a flag of truce and demanded
the surrender of the armory; after expostula
ting for some time, the rioters refused. The
marines then advanced and made a charge, en
deavoring to break open the door with sledge
hammers, but it resisted all their efforts. A
large ladder was then used as a battering ram,
and the door gave way. The rioters fired
briskly, and shot three of the marines who ex
changed shots through the partly broken door.
The marines then forced their way through
the break, and in a few minutes resistance was
at an end. The rioters were brought out
amidst the most intense excitement, many of
the armed militia present trying to get an op
portunity to shoot them. Capt. Brown and
his son were both shot; the latter is dead and
the former dying. He lies in the armory en
closure. He talks freely, and says that be is
the old Opawattoraie Brown, whose feats in
Kansas have had such notice He says his
whole object was to free the slaves, and in jus
tifying his actions, says that he bad possession
of the town and could have murdered all the
people, and he had been murdered in return.—
J. G. Anderson was also shot down in the as
sault; he was from Connecticut. The dead
body of a man shot yesterday, was found with
in the armory. Brown declares that there
were none engaged in the plot but these who
accompanied him. The prisoners are retained
in the armory enclosure.

1 All these inoven,ems seem to hare been
made without exciting the slightest alarm in
the town, nor did the detention of Captain ,
Phelps . train at the upper end of the town at•
tract attention. It was not until the town was
thoroughly waked up and found the bridge
guarded by armed men, and a guard stationed
at all the even uef.., that the people found they
avers prisoners A panic appears immediately
to have ensued, and the number of the insur
rectionists at once increased from 60, which
was probably the greatest, including the slaves,
who were forced to join, to from 600 to 600.
In the meantime a number of workmen, know.
ing nothing of what had occurred, entered the
, armory end were successively taken prisoners,
until at one time they had not less than sixty
men confined iu the armory.
Among those thus entrapped were Armsted
Ball, Chief Draughtsman of the Armory, Benj.
Mills, Mastery of the Armory, and J. L. P.
Dangerfleld, P'aymaster's clerk. These three
gentlemen were imprisoned in the engine house,
which afterwards became the chief fortress of
the insurgents, and were not released until af
ter the final assault. The workmen were im
prisoned in a large building further down the
yard, and were rescued by a brilliant Zouave
dash made by the Railroad Company's men,
who came down from Martinsburg. This was
the condition of affairs at daylight, about which
time Captain. Cook, with two white men, ac
companied SO slaves, and taking with them Col.
Washington's large wagon, went over the
bridge and struck up the mountain on the road
towards Pennsylvania.
HARPER'S FERRY, October ,18.-1.30, e.
—The Secretary of War has telegraphed to
Col. Lee, that air. Could, the District Attor
ney for this district, will proceed forthwith to
Harper's Ferry, to take charge of the legal
proceedings against the prisoners and bring
them to trial. The train is now getting ready
to convey horses and men from here, to pur
sue the rioters into any State or locality,where
they may have fled. Thls is by order of the
President at the request of Gov. Wise.
