Offences against the License Laws have been
very numerous in our vicinity, as well as in other
'p t i r tai l f the State ; and there was much remiss-,

matter. On the 14th i.,stant, 'beforeJudg i es

convicted and fined. Others were fined on other
days of the Court. The whole number of indict
ments found, by the late Grand Jury, fur the
County of Allegheny, is two hundred and thirty
four; of which about eighty had been disposed
of, up to the 16th inst. The Court still contin
ued in its work, with apparently a firm purpose to
enforce the laws.
The Dispatch reports Judge McClure as having,
on Thursday, announced a determination to bring,
offenders to justice:
Ile said that, notwithstanding the efforts of
Ward constables, and others, to do their duty, a
large number of those indicted have managed to
successfully evade the processes of the Court; and
from term to term, since the new license law went
into operation, escaped the penalty, and have con
tinued in the sale of liquor with impunity. With
a view to remedy this state of affairs, and inas
much as the indictments had principally been
found upon the returns made'by the constables at
the commencement of the term, the Court made
an order that dUplicate processes should,pe given
to those officers most likely to find the accused
parch s, as the Deputy Sheriff, although no doubt
an efficient officer, was certainly unable to serve,
with any success, the large number of processes,
(something over a hundrf d.) issued by the Prose
ding Attorney, be, having no authority to give
them into the hands of any other officer. His
Honor lidverted to the manner in' which the law
was enforced in other cities, and desired it to be
distinctly understood, that however it might be
administered ; in other Counties, nothing should
doter the Court from . enforcing thb lair strictly in.
Allegheny County. The large number of persOns
opposed to the law, threw obstacles in the 'Way of
its'enforcement; but knowing its duty in the
prent'ses, the Court would be violating its oath,
did it ,not % perform it; and it would eit till,dog- •
days, if necessary, in order to get an opportunity
to punish those whO continue to sell liquor with
impunity, and-inrutter defiance of the law. '
• This purpose being perseveringly - executedMrill
greatly tend to relieve the community of an awful,
curse,; and it is to be hoped that there is sufficient
virtue and integrity among Christians, and other
good citizens, to'sustain' the officers. - -Even liquor
drinkers should be willing to see the Lieense .

for many years an exemplary and worthy member. In 1827,
she, with two of her . sisters, Mary and Margaret, (both of

Mrs. McCoy had long been a member of the Presbyterian
Mucci), strong in
. fsitW and exemplary in conduct. She
wae,.formany years, afflicted with deafness to such an ex
tent that, to hear preaching, was impossible. The written
Word was her instructor and solace and she bore her afflic.
Cons with great meekness. Tier last sickness was inflam
motion of the lungs. She departed in peace, with a full
bane in a blissful immortality through Christ the Saviour.

Favored with early religions inatructiin and example, she
wariMade a partaker of the'biessings of the covenant which
God gives to his people, tied their seed, and was led to de
vote herself to him. Her Christiett life was characterized by
seriousness and cheerfulness, by strong affection for her
kindred, and by sympathy for allsuffering °nett:up. For
any work of usefulness in the aileron church, where she
had been long a member, she was aliays ready; and many
a heart will feel desolate as it approaches her former
residence, and realizes that she is gone.. None can
feel It so deeply as an ag:id husband, left solitary and
palsied. When It becaine manifest that her disease had
taken that peoulhir form, which is scarcely ever cured, and
when the , probability of her departure was announced, she
received the. intellioncs with c enposure, and through out
her 'rattail:lga, resigned herself into the arms of the Saviour .
When about going down through the dark valley, and when
her sight became dim, she asked for her husband, who, hav

told War that her thrie.was short, - she replied, "• ant happy;
