—We are pleased to learn of the in
terest taken in the musical convention
now in session, under the direction of
Prof. Leason. The Professor being to
some extent a strauger to most of our
music-loving public, there was some
difficulty exjwjrienced at first by those
having the matter in charge, in pecur
ing a sufficient number of scholars to
begin with. But one night's practice
was sufficient to convince the most
skeptical that we had secured an in
structor of more tbat ordinary ability,
and by the second evening there was
a large attendance. The class now
numbers over eighty pupils. The
convention will close with a concert
in the Court IIOUFC, on Friday eve
ning of this week, .vith a programme
consisting of glees, choruses, anthems
and selections from oratorio and opera.
—The five young men who went
hunting io Tucker county, West
Virginia, lately, have returned home.
Their hunting ground was an elevated
valley surrounded by mountains, forty
miles from the habitation of any human
being. Here they subsisted for several
days on what food they had taken with
them and the game they killed. Small
game was very plenty and they had
more than they needed, and of the large
game, Ed. Colbert killed two deers, a
buck and a doe; George Ziegler a bear;
John Muntz three wild turkeys, and
Ezra Brugh n buck, the horns of which
now adorn his office wall The party
were startled in their camp, early one
morning, by the cries of a huge panther,
which they followed for miles but did
not succeed in killing. What few
people there are on the mountains there,
live in rude log huts of but one room
each, and subsist entirely on game.

—There were three very interesting
cases on the trial list for last week,
viz: those of W. W. I)unlap et al.,
vs. James W. Kelly, Administrator of
James Heron, J<]. Afore-head,
guardian, et al., vs. A. L. Campbell,
and Samuel L. Kiddle, Sr., vs. Josiah
M. Thompson, Solomon Thompson and
and John C. Martin sureities of John
M Thompson, Esq. as committee of
the jiheakly estate. J>unlap lost his
suit, which was brought to recoyer the
amount of a note of s">soo, which it
was alleged was given to Mrs. Dunlap
by Mr. Huio.i previous to his death,
but which her attorney lost. More
head won his, and Campbell will
lose the land described in the writ.
Kiddle won his, the Court directing a
verdict in his favor but reserving a
question of law and until this is de
cided the case is not |u shape to go to
the Supremo Court. John M
Thompson, Esq., was committee on
tha Shcukly estate and gave his sure
ties on his bond, a bond of indemnity,
which was entered in judgment against
him. Then in order to rai.-e money to
pay off the claim of the Sheakly estate
against him, he got his sureties to as
sign their judgment against him and
guarantee the payment of it Ma this
paper Kiddle advanced the necessary
$15,00u, and took the paper as securi
ty. Kiddle afterward* collected
about SBOOO from Thompson's pstate bv
execution, and sued the sureties for the
balance whi/th, principal and interest,
amounted to $10,208 30. Their prin
cipal defense was that Kiddle extend
ed the time of payment of the Judg
i ment to Thompson, without their con-
I sent and also that there was no con
tiideratioo for their promise to pay.

Siilelilc of Philip IICIIIH.
The fifth suicide that has been re
ported in this county in about as many
months occured in Oakland twp. last
Philip Heins was a young man
of about twenty-five years, unmarried,
doing well, and healthy, excepting
tbat he was troubled with a bad catarrh.
He ate his dinner last Thursday at his
father's house in Oakland twp., where
he lived, joked with the family and
some neighbors who happened in,
then lit bis pipe, and remarking
that be intended going tbat afternoon
to buy a cow, Went to the barn
hitohed up a horse, which he left
standing in the barn or yard. Noth
ing more was seen of him until Sat
urday morning and the family were
about giving up searching for him,
when a little boy, living at the
house, came in with the horrible news
that be bad found Philip's clothing
on top of a grain stack in the burn, and
that I'hilip was barigiug to a strap
alongside of the stack.
Before commiting the deed, Mr.
Heins had divested himself of every
stitch of clothing and had wrapped a
buggv spread around himself, tying it
around his neck r.ncl also his feet.
The strap with which bo hung him
self wattled to a rafter, thrown over a
brace, and then loosely tied around bis
neck, and be bad secured bis arms
with a strap which passed around
both above the elbows, behind his
back, and buckled at the left arm. He
must then have thrown himself vio
lently forvyard from the top of the
stack and have struck one of the tim
bers of the barn, for when found, his
nose was mashed flat. The top of the
stack was within three feet of the roof
01/N; barn, and he bung in a narrow
' Mtwecn the stack and the barn
wall. Some two hundred dollars in
money, and notes amounting to one
hundred more were found in the pock
ets of his clothing, and no cause for
biy deed has as yet been sqrmised,
unless it In; that the catari h with
which hp was troqblcd suddenly de
ranged his ruind. Esq. Keed summon:
edajury and held an inquest. The
decision of ihe jury was that he came
to his death by hia own bunds.

Xolcs on < iirr<>ul Event*.
The co.uet is to be credited with
getting people out of there bed at 4
o'clock in the morning who would
else, perhaps, never have had a con
ception of the inter' folly of the man
who in vented-the- saw. 'Early to b£<]
and early to rise, IJ akes a man bcaithv,
wealthy and wise." It i.-v more apt to
make him otherwise, at least in this
section and generation.
Frank James, the many-times mur
derer and perscribed outlaw, (qually
notorious with his brother Jesse, has
surrendered himself to the authorities.
The same report that tells this says that
while he was at the hotel in Jefferson
City, Mo., many prominent citizens
were there seeking to shake hands
with him. Think of the honor of that!
It is such things that make a man
blush for his race.
Here is a reported remark by an
Irish Member of Parliament on which
there was no debate: "So long as Ire
land was silent under her wrongs,
England was deaf to her cries." It
was a fellow-countryman, not an M. P.
but a church clerk, who posted on the
church door this: "Notice—The church
wardens will hold their quarterly
meetings once in six weeks, instead of
half-yearly, as formerly."
No wonder the venerable and peace
ful poet Whittier thinks it desecration
to celebrate the bi-centenary of the Land
ing of Penn with a military parade.
He writes that, with all due allowance
for the tastes and inclinations of those
who do not share his scruples and con
victions, he thinks there should be in
the celebration something of fitness,
something consistant with the charac
ter and views of the founder of Penn
sylvania. "Perhaps," says he, ''no
plan which could be devised would be
entirely satisfactory. I would not
criticise the one adopted too severely,
vet I cannot but regard it as a greßt
mistake. I should, of course, be sorry
to see anything like the nonsense and
absurdity of an Italian carnival or a
New Orleans festival of unreason, in
the celebration of the founding of a
Christian commonwealth, but my
main objection is to the proposed dis
play of military parades."
Terrible Scene In Xew York.
A dispatch from New York says:
The south side of Fourteenth street,
between Broadway and Sixth avenue,
is a locality much frequented by
ladies shopping, for it is lined with
showy millinery stores, modiste's es
tablishments and shops full of the
showiest and costliest articles of femi
uine apparel. Yesterday afternoon, as
on all pleasant afternoons, it was
thronged with well dressed women.
About four o'clock when the throng
was densest a short man, with star
ing bloodshot e3 T es, a bristling
red moustache and scrubby red beard,
and red, repulsive face,! knocked one of
these women down, and then drawing
a long, bright steel instrument from
his pocket, sprang savagely at a gronp
of women in front of Olessen's mil-
linery store. They ran screaming into
the store and more than one showed
by slashed dress how narrow her
escape had been. The man then
charged another woman, who ran,
screaming into Johnson's millinery
store He attempted to follow, but
the door was slammed in his face and
he turned away. This had happened
so quickly that a group of ladies look
ing into Johnsou's show windows had
no time to get away aud the man
plunged at them, stabbing right and
left. The scene was frightful ; women
fell before his blows and fainted with
fright; they rushed into stores, across
the street, up steps, and their shrieks
were loud. On went the man toward
Sixth ayenue. It was but a moment,
though, before the street was deserted.
Then he stopped for a moment and
turned. At this a number of men who
were waiting this opportunity sprung
upon him, dashed him to the ground,
disarmed him and held him there until
a policeman came. Then an effort
was made to see what harm the man
had done. It was found that he had
stabbed probably from ten to twenty
women, two boys and a man. Curi
ously enough, the woman worst hurt
was found to be the wife of the police
man who arrested him, Mrs. Mary
Hanley, a young woman of twenty
eight, who was stabbed in the left
breast, it is feared fatally.
The man proved to be Ernst Dour
bourgue, a maniac. He is 37 years
old, aud has long been known to the
people of this city, and was thought
as a harmless lunatic. He and his
father came here from France. They
were sign painters. The old man be
came deranged and thought the Gov
erniuet owed him money. The son
followed the delusion of his father.
They used to carry sandwhich signs
on which was printed in plain
white letters a statement of their
grievances. They were arrested, but
no cause for action was found and
they continued to carry tho signs.
In February the old man died. The
son was evidently demented, but
was restrained. After ho was ar
rested he said that what he had
done was in self-defense, lie had
been attacked by those people, who
owed him $250,000 and wanted to
kill him. The weapon with which
he did the deed was a pair of meas
uring compasses eight inches long.
He sometimes opened them and cut
right and left: at other times folded
them and inflicted a double wound.

I It is aggravation to find that plate of
i | F stock glass, which acts as a
l>arri»X -to tb<» , inqtiisitive man and
i woman, at the georgeous exhibit of
i I this firm, close to Floral Hall. You
want to get close and touch, and
feel, and examine the subcrb Wraps
which have been added to the display,
Unit seemed already so perfect, that to
add auyibiug to improve it, would be
i as much u work of supererogation, as
Ito attempt to "paint the lily." Yet,
( their magnificent Wraps have been
added, and the effect is, if possible,
even liner than before. Probably the
handsomest Mantle ever seen in Pitts
burgh, is the one in the case at the
side nearest Floral Hall. It is hand
embroidered in large boquets, with
sprays and tendrils, that are so perfect
that they must have been copied from
living blooms. It is all black, yet the
silks have been so skillfully managed
that all the telling influences of light
and shade have been marvelously pro
duced. Any one fur would not har
monize with this exquisite creation ;
therefore the master mind that de
signed the rest surrounded it with a
bordering of Marabout feathers and
chenille, and the mantle was, and is,
perfect. Besides this, is what seems
Ito be a seal plush, that looks so soft,
so thick, so rich, with its border of
black fur about three-eigliths of a yard
deep, and with a sleeve somewhat in
Japanese style. This is not so showy
aa the first cloak described, but is so
elegant that it i 3 wo thy to be placed
beside it, a test that would have
"killed" the ge r eralii/ of "handsome
wraps." The thud style of plush,
with horizoital liues of overlapping
leaves ol some velvety, satin combi
nation projected o.*cr the whole sur
face; and has thick fouragturn as
decoratioD. This is the only one
with the lining displayed, and makes
one wish that a glimpse had been
permitted at the others. This one
then, has the lining of plush in semi
wide alternate stripes of deep garaet,
and deep blue; too dark to be flashy,
and too rich to be sombre. These
three wraps are large and excessiyely
stylish in cut. Had not the glass
prevented more than a prescribed ex
amination, fuller details would have
been obtained. As it is, there is only
one course to pursue, that is. visit the
stores of Jos. Home <te Co., Nos. 197,
11»0, 201 and 203 l'enn avenue, and
get a thorough satisfactory view of all
the wraps which those at the Exposi
tion simply indicate.
Wlint is (lioliiK <<> '»«' Worn.
This question has been often asked
in reference to the Winter Wraps.
So many handsome things in the way
of Jackets, Dolmans, Circulars and
Coats are now shown and in such
varied textures that Ladies must real
ly get in some store where a full assort
ment is kept. The immense variety
in this line kept at the People's Store,
on Fifth avenue, Pittsburgh, make it
a favorite place for shopping, and one
very pleasant feature that always
characterized this establishment is the
fact that you are at perfect liberty to
examine the goods without being
annoyed and bored to buy goods
whether they suit you or not. By re
ferring to their advertisement iu this
issue, our readers can get an idea of
of the goods and prices at that store.
Call when next in Pittsburgh whether
you want to buy or not, as the visit
will pay you, if nothing more than
to see the new styles.
