On Saturday last, a little son of Henry
Miller, living in the upper part of this bo
rough, whilst engaged with his sister in
playing with ''Grace Hoops,"—by throw
ing a small hoop into the air with sticks,
and catching it with the same,—acciden

eye, produced so dreadful a wound that
the little sufferer has died.
New Goods !
We invite special attention to the ad
vertisement of our young friend David P.
Gwin. Dave is a clever fellow, always
attentive to his customers, and has a splen
did lot of goods on hand ; just received.—
We cordially recommend him toour friends,
—more especially our lady friends. Give
him a call, as that is the a place where
you get your money back." Nuf ced.
If there is a poor soul who is to be piti
ed it is he who has to "flit." Our sym
pathies are entirely with those who are
thus compelled to change residences from
year to year. It is really amusing to see
a wagon load of articles belpnging to these
"movers." Here is a ten plate stove, on'
top of which is a bedstead, surmounted by
a huge bundle of bed-clothes, on top of
which, is two or three.loaves of bread.—
In the back part of the "%vehicle" is a cra
dle filled with meat and sour-krout, with
two or three jars of "pickles," and all cov
ered with ; suspicious looking blanket.—
'rake it all in all, "Three removes is as bad
as a fire." That's so.
The express train which left Pittsburg
on Wednesday evening, at 10 o'clock,
when passing through the narrows at
Jackstown, ran against a large rock which
was lying on the track. The engine
crushed the rock in pieces, bus was thrown
off the track, and carried off with it the
tender, baggage car, and passenger car.—
The engine then tan a distance of several
hundred yards, when it was overturned,
and partially broken to pieces. Tho bag.

wreck. '1 he engineer was badly, and
probably fatally injured. The fireman,
and one brakeman were also seriously in

of the passengers were badly scalded ;

The death or the Emperor of Russia is
confirmed. His son Alexander ascended
the throne with the title of Alexander the
Second, and had issued a manifesto stating
that he will adhere to the policy of his fa

by atrophy of the lungs. It is said that
shortly before his death, he effected a com-

sons, Alexander and Nicholas, who had
been at variance.

Applications for Pardons.
The liability of the Executive to imposition
by the friends of applicants for pardons, has in
duced Gov. Pollock to adopt certain rules in
relation to applications of this character, which
it will be well for the people to acquaint them
selves with. An official advertisement from
Mr. Curtin, Secretary of the Commonwealth,
states that, hereafter, satisfactory evidence will
be required that at least five days' previous no
tice of intended applications for pardons was
given to the District Attorney of the county or
city in which the conviction took place; and
that at least ten days' previous notice of the
same was given in a newspaper published where
the conviction took place. These rules we
learn, will be rigidly adhered to, unless peculi
ar circumstances should justify their wisp.-
sion. This course is absolutely necessary to
prevent the abuse of the pardoning power, and
to protect the Executive from imposition.—
Wh e n pardoits tern W he applied fin', it is right
that the community should new it, in order
that there may be such an expressior. of popu
lar sentiment as will bring out all the filets,
and enable the Governor to net understandingly
and intelligently, and its strict accordance with
the principles of justice.

NEW YORK, March 31, 1855.
Appearance of Nay York—?he Mayor—Dirty
,Streets—More of the Pool Tragedy—The
Spring Fashions, rf•e.
MR. Eurron.—Permit me through the col
umns of your valuable paper, to make a few
observations on matters and things now trans
piring in this great city. The advance of spring
is bringing out many new features, and casts•
ing New York to look far more lively than it
did a month ago. As we always more fully ap•
preciate the sun after a long storm, so do we
enjoy the warm and beautiful weather which
we are now favored with, as succeeding the
snows and slush of February. The placards
posted on the houses signifying that they are
"to let," greet you at every block. Spring re
pairs are being made, and altogether New York
presents about as estimated a scene as one
would wish to witness. Our good mayor also
remains true to his task of renovating our city
from the many nuisances which have so long
been a disgrace to it. The streets are now well
swept, and to give you some idea of how much
they required it, out Of a little alley only one
block lung and not more than fifteen feet broad,
there were taken ninety cart loads of mud and
earth. It probably bad not been swept before
for years. Instead of the half dozen old lame,
blind, worn-out men, who used slowly to drag
broom--which was about as much warn out
as their owners—after them, and call it sweep
ing, we have stow gangs of stout men who
know what they are about. It may be asked,
why New Yorkers are continually harping on
"clean streets;' is there nothing else to be done?
Let me assure you, Mr. Editor, that there is a
great deal else to be 'done. That the snore
sweeping of streets is a small part, and on that
account most of our mayors have neglected
In the many duties of a mayor of such a tae•
tropolis es this, it is not strange that most men
forget such little matters.
MORE OF THE POOLE TILIOEDY
The excitement in regard to this affair is
still kept up. The lithographers have reaped
quite a harvest (rem the sale of his likenesses,
and pictures of the row, in which coo be seen
every one shooting everybody else, and all fur
the low price of sixpence. These displays of
American art and genius, are exhibited in the
shop windows, and hawked around the streets
by juvenile pedlars, and serve to keep the urat•
ter in mind. Irving, charged with being no
accessory to this murder, has been recently
bailed, in the amount of $lO,OOO. Judge Mor•
ris has laces, by some parties, very severely
Ce 1131112,1 for allowing him to be bailed, while
others agree with him in Iris view of the cos,
Councilman Kerrigan, also implicated in tit.,
same matter, has been brought before the Court
of Common Pleas, by a writ of habeas corpus,
aid also bailed. John Morrissey, John Ilyler,
and Cornelius Lynn, were also brought before
Judge Morris, of the Supreme Court, lint their
case has nut yet been passed upon. So we see
that the murder has given work to itclity per.
sons, and will be a line feather in the caps of
some of the lawyers.
TIM SPRING FASITIoNA.
Will you allow me, Mr. Editor, to give to
your lady readers, who are usually interested
in such matters, n short paragraph upon what
are now the fashions in New York. As for
bonnets, they are this season not so much flared
as last, the crowns droop more, and the front
is slightly projecting. They are trimmed with
flowers, intermingled with white and block
blonde, which produces a very novel effect. In
ladies dresses there has been quite a change.
the belt waist having been chest and the
pointed corsage takes its place. Basque waists,
and flounces still prevail, and the "bell sleeve,"
usurps the place of the flowing sleeve. A pro.
fusion of jewelry is considered in very bad
lasts, as it ought to he.
Yours truly, V. S.
