Herloaa Slabbing Affray on Tenth Street,
Last evening a serious cutting affray occurred
In Boyer's place, an alley running off of Tenth
street, above Chesnut. A white man named
David Smith was cut with a razor by a colored
man, name unknown. The wound is six inches
in length, and is on the left side. Dr. Ellshaw,
who was summoned to attend the wounded man,
pronounced his condition as extremely dan
gerous. Later In the evening Reserve Officer
Campbell arrested at Fox's Theatre a woman
named Ellen Davis, who was in company with
tie assassin. The testimony of the prisoner was
extremely incoherent, but enough was elicited
to show that there had been some kind of a gene
ral row previous to the cutting. At a late hour
last night tbe assailant of Smith was arrested in
a house on Lombard street, above Seventh. He
f;ave the name of David Lee, and he ocknow
edged that he had committed the deed. lie U
locked up in the Central Station and will be
before Justice Kerr this afternoon.
St. Mary's Hospital. The fourth annual
report of the St. Mary's Hospital Association has
just been presented to the managers, from
which the following facts are gleaned:
This association was organized on the 2d of
February, 1807, and has collected during the
last four years the sum of $14,043 31. Ihere
were received in 1870 by this association 84
patients for full payment, of whom many were
supported by the association three to six months,
and some more than a year.
The following is the financial exhibit:
Taken in during 1870 by the collectors. .$2700 00
Picnic in 1870 by the association and
given for the benefit of the association 1452-47
Total receipts 4158-47
Paid to the Sisters of St. Francis for
patients in 1870 2003-55
Balance for the association 1489-92
Previous surplus 3487-20
Balance, January 1, 1871 $4977-18
This remaining sum of $497718 is in the
sands of the Sisters of St. Francis, and must be
used in accordance with the existing statutes ot
the association for the poor patients whom the
association sends to the St. Mary's Hospital in
Philadelphia. The Sisters, for the benefit of the
hospital, are not required to compensate in
terest. The object of this association is to collect for
the benefit of poor patients, to enlist members
for the association, and also to induce others
eharitably inclined to gifts of all kinds for the
unfortunate. All those recommended by the
members, or the members themselves, have, in
case of sickness, the preference as to the ad
mittance Into the hospital. To become a mem
ber of the association a yearly payment of $3,
or 25 cents monthly, is required. In accordance
with tbe statutes of the association, the money
received by Us members for subscriptions, con
tributions, and legacies is handed over to the
Sisters of St. Francis in the St. Mary's Hospital,
who keep a strict account of the money thus
paid in to them, and also of the money laid out
by them for the patients admitted by the asso
ciation. All patients are received without dis
tinction as to religion or to language. When
patients die in the hospital whom the associa
tion has accepted, without means, the associa
tion pays the expenses of burial, if there should
be no relatives to provide for the same.
The Right Rev. Bishop James Wood, D. D.,
Bishop of Philadelphia, is President ex o.tficio ot
this association. The director is the Kev. John
W. Cerdemann, pastor of St. Bonifacius' Church.
At the late election, during last February, were
elected Mrs. A. Somrner, President; M. Mc
Carthy, Vice-President; A. J. Glasz, Treasurer;
Mies M. Wagner, Secretary. As directors, Mrs.
A. Sommer, No. 1014 North Fifth street; M.
McCarthy, No. 1009 Beach street; A. J. Glasz,
No. 1229 North Seventh street; C. Zuijehoer,
No. 1124 Sophia street; C. Christian, No. 029
East York street: J. Hardlck, No. 507 Reed
street; E. Stoeckel, No. 1229 South Third street.
It Is much desired that the institution should be
liberally supported by its friends. During the
last month the receipts were only $247"10, while
the expenses were $427.
An Old Coloked Man Blows His Buains
Out In a lot where the Satterlee Hospital
formerly stood, on Forty-third street, below
Spruce street, at 9 o'clock this morning, there
was found an old colored man with his brains
blown out. He was sitting up, with his back
resting against a tree. The top of the scalp
was blown some twenty feet distance. The
brains were scattered here and there, and the
man was literally a mass of blood. The deceased
had undoubtedly committed suicide. His left
hand grasped au old horse pistol. In his pocket
was found a shot pouch, half filled with large
shot. Lying by his side was a soldier's canteen,
half filled with whisky. lie was dressed In an
old suit of soldier's clothes. The Coroner will
hold an inquest.
Disorderly Conduct. John Miller and two
other men were disorderly at Second and South
streets last evening, when Officer Moore, of the
Second district, interfered for the preservation
of the peace of the locality. Impudence was
-given, when the officer and a private watchman
undertook to arrest the peace-breakers. The
watchman received a pretty thorough beating
at the hands of Miller. Tho parties were finally
arrested, and Miller was committed by Alder
man Lutz and the other two held in bail.
Impudent Theft William IlT Batton, who
Is accused of being an old thief, vesterday after
noon entered the restaurant of Tom Krouts, in
the basement of the Sixteenth District Station

To-day at 13 o'clock noon, a meeting of mem
bers of the Philadelphia bar was held in the
Supreme Court room, for the purpose ot taking
action on the death of the late Ellis Lewis, ex
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Pennsyl
vania. On motion of Jnd?e Parsons Chief Justice
Thompson was called to the chair. Colonel J.
Ross Snowden and Henry M. Phillips acted as
Judge Thompson, on calling the meeting to order,
paid a tribute to the memory of the deceased and
reconnted several lncideuts connected with his
life which had come within the speaker's personal
knowledge. Ills services to the law and the State
were Incalculable. Judge Thompson and Judge
Lewis were in the Legislature together at the time
of the great excitement on the subject of tho inter
nal Improvements in the State. The two were
placed on the special committee on that subject.
They were also on a committee to visit the prisons
of Philadelphia during the recess of the Legislature.
The? then visited the debtors' department of the
County Prison, and found many there who were
lmptisoped for debts less than five dollars. Judge
LCft 18 framed a repoit on this subject, and drew up
a bill, which was passed, concerning Imprisonment
for small debts, and this was the first step towards
the abolishment of the then very popular custom of
debtors' imprisonment. The speaker then men
tioned tie several oltlces which had been held at
different times by the deceased. He was on the
bench at the time that Judge Thompson was elected
his successor. His judicial knowledge Is an In
valuable lesacy to the legal profession. His deci
sions were always supported by reason, and they
came as quick as lightning.
Judge Parsons made a few remarks, saying that
among all the distinguished gentlemen who have
occupied a seat on tho Supreme Bench, It Is no dis
credit to any. to say that Bills Lewis was pre
eminent. His name and fame will live as long as
our reports are In print. I became acquainted with
him first about the year 1822, In Lycoming county,
where 1 then resided. In 1320 he had a serious ill
ness, which it was feared would result in a loss of one
of his limbs. This catastrophe was, however, mar
clfully averted. Hut while he was 111 he requested
me, who had Just entered the bir, to
take charge of the prosecutions of which he had the
care as the District Attorney of tbe county. This
was a great help to me. He was always ready to
help every young lawyer. The Legislature of which
he became a member held more distinguished men
than have been In that body at any time during the
last fortv-five years. Yet hU tawnts were such that
he held his own firmly against them all. While
President Judge of the courts of Lancaster county
he wrote his celebrated Treatise on Criminal Law.
Judge Parsons then submitted the following reso

Kennlcrd, That we deplore the death of Judge Lewis as
