Just before the parade started, and as
Chief Marshal McMellen was riding en
Duke street, between Orange and Chest
nut, his horse became unmanageable and
threw him off, severely spraining his
right wrist and probably breaking or split
ting one of the bones of his hand. The
horse ran down Duke street te Vine,
where it was caught. Several persons
narrowly escaped being run ever, as the
horse ran upon the sidewalk a part of the
way. One young lady fell fainting in
front of Alderman Barr's office, and had
she net fallen she would probably have
been run ever and hurt. Notwithstand

the night of January 20. was resumed
The defendants denied having taken any
of the articles from prosecutor's wagon.
They allege if anything was stolen, it was
done by ethers, who are new fugitives from
justice. Mr. Eckcrt, father of one of the
defendants, testified that the prosecutor
had, en three liilerent occasions, offered
te settle this case, asking the first time
MO, the second $00, and the third time
$70. A number of witnesses testified that
Peter E. I less's character for honesty was
The argument in the case was net con
cluded when court adjourned until IS

ing session was taken up with the argu
ment of the cases of Levi Eckcrt, Peter

During the examination of the wit
ncsses the district attorney had reflected
upon Messrs. Reynolds and Urubaker, of
counsel for defense, for their examination
of witnesses who had been subpoenaed by
the commonwealth ; but who, it was satis
factorily shown, had been represented te
them as witnesses for the defense.
In his closing speech te the jury Dis
trict Attorney Eshlemau said that in mak
ing this charge he had simply been giving
expression te a principle et proicssienai
etiquette taught him by his lamented pre
ceptor, and that he regretted giving ex
pression te it, but repeated his opinion
that the conduct he complained of was
Messrs. Reynolds and Brubaker at once
sprang te their feet and denounced the in
sinuation as cowardly, and Mr. Brubaker
said that if the district attorney charged
him with improper relations with the
witnesses the charge was that of a black
guard. Mr. Reynolds also resented it
with great spirit and indignation. Judge
Patterson rapped and ordered them te be
quiet and sit down. They declined te de
cither until they had repelled the assault
made upon them.
Judge Patterson apologized for the dis
trict .ittornevs efl'cnsive remarks and said
. they had no greater significance than as
his own individual opinion. But Messrs.
Brubaker and Reynolds insisted en their
right te have the court say te the jury
that the district attorney's remarks were
Fer a time there was considerable excite
ment ever the episode hi the bar, which
was finally suppressed by the court. After
this breeze the jury was charged and ver
dicts of guilty were rendered, the court
having said in its charge that in passing
sentence it would take into consideration
the " sadness" of the case.
Regular Proceedings Resumed.

ing te keep North Prince street in a passa
ble condition. The chairman of the street
committee stated that if the case would be

would de all in their power te break up
the practice which constables indulge in of
returning cases of this kind te court en

Commonwealth vs. Samuel Fowler, of
this city, surety of the peace and desertion
The complainant in the case was Olivia
Fewler,defcndant's wife, who testified that
he abandoned her and made threats
against her at different times. His
treatment was se bad that a daughter of
the defendant was obliged te leave home ;
although the parties live together -at the
present time, they de net eat at the same
table. The witness stated that she brought
the suit for fear that he would desert her.
Several ether witnesses testified that they
heard defendant make threats.
The defendant upon being called te the
stand testified that he never struck his
wife, who has thrown smoothing irons at
him. She is extravagant and abusive and
will net de any work for him. Witness
always kept a domestic te de the work.
The trouble with his daughter arose
from the fact that she and her
mother went te a store and bought
a bill of $280 without his orders;
The main cause of this trouble was that
his wife and child had been set against
him by meddlers ; witness has a great deal
of land, but has no money, and has no
idea what it is worth. He is unable te
sell the land and cannot obtain any money
The defendant was ordered te give bail in
the sum of $200 in the surety of the peace
case and te pay the costs. The desertion
case was continued until August term.

The court refused the license.
Gertrude Rupprecht, of Columbia was
au applicant for a license for a hotel at the
corner of Fourth and Walnut streets,

tion with the hotel. This license was

stand for which a license was refused last

it. After hearing the argument the case
was continued until the third Monday in

In addition te a full stock et the celebrated Rogers Bre.'s goods, we have the exclusive sale
in this city ei the electro-plated ware el the U or ham Manufacturing Company. These are the
best finished and most durable in the market, and in recommending them te the trade this
company (whose representations are always reliable) claim ler them the following merits:
" The base of tha Gerham electro-plate is of nickel silver. The silver-plated wares made upon
this base combine all the excellence of the solid silver goods except the intrinsic value of the
silver itself. One of the remarkable features of the process of electro-plating is perfect accu
racy and delicacy with which the finest line of the engraving or chasing traced en the surface
of the nickel bas is reproduced en the surface of the silver coating. Thus all the excellence of
workmanship which has earned for the company Its reputation as makers et sterling silver
goods is made tributary te the production of unsurpassed electro-plate. The quantity of pure
silver deposited en the tinsly finished base exceeds that upon the best of foreign plate. This
ware would be excellent and take a fine polish without a coating et silver, yet upon It is laid a
silver surface which will If net abused last mere than a generation. The object Is te produce
plated ware which shall have all the beauty or the solid wares. This high grade et ware is un
distinguishable from work in Sterling silver. Its pattern, ornaments and workmanship are
made equal te these for which the Company's Sterling Silverware has been se highly com
mended. Te these conditions is added the undeflnablc air or style which distinguishes the
genuine in everything Irem the work et imitators and which naturally transfers itself from
the Sterling te the plated ware." The price of these goods is only a trifle higher than""some of
the inferior productions.
