The Supreme Court met again this morning, at 9 o clock. Present, Chief-Justice Thompson, and Justices Aguew and Sharswood. The case of Sehoeppe vs. The Commonwealth, being still before the Court, District-Attorney Maglaughlin continued for the Commonwealth, examining the points of error assigned by Schoeppe's counsel. He con troverted the position that Dr. Aiken's test of the contents of Miss Eteinnecke's stomach was faulty; proved the clandestine purchase of prus sic acid at Harri&burg, and Shoeppe's attempt to conceal tne iact; tbe trustwortniness ot tue old- established physicians of Carlisle all of whom testihed that the immediate cause of her death was morphia, not excluding also the admlnUtra tiou of prusslc acid. The check, equally with the will, showed a motive for the crime. Sehoeppe was In want of money drew a forged check to supply his im mediate wants until the forged will might be probated. The Commonwealth alleged that tho will was a forererv the defense did not deny It The Commonwealth thought it a farce to call the father of the accused to testify to the genu ineness of a forgery in which he himself was eu caned: because if the will was a forgery the signature of the father was a forgery. Wby, then, did not the detense call the witness ? Evi dently for a very good reason. Wherever there was the least doubt about evidence that was to go to the jury the Court had been careful to tbrow every advantage mereoi in uvur vi mo nrlsnrer. Three weeks before Miss Stelanecke's death fichoeppe got the very eame form of a will which is used in the forgery. These were facts proved by tbe evidence. w. it. Miner. &8Q., loiiowea ior csenoeppe, contending that tho act of 1870 covers all cases of murder before execution, because there were no vested rights to be interfered with as in civil cases, ibis was merely tne extension ot a re medy in a criminal case, as in a civil action. We might go back to ascertain the reason of the enactment, lne debates ot tbe. .Legislature fchowed it was to meet thia very case, and It was pnsFtd in time to meet it had the Governor signed it when presented. It was an enabling statute. The matter now asked was not before the Court judicially when they ruled, under the common law, that they saw no error on the face of the record. Counsel on the other side alleged that this act made the Supremo Court a jury to decide upon the fact. This was erro neous, it only enauiea tne Miprcme uourt to determine whether the Ingredients of tho evi dence were suflicient to convict of murder in the first degree. It was urged that this case wa not pending nnder tho act of 18T0. Should it le said, in common numamty, mat wncn a man has been shut out and tho door barred, if he tomes back with a ticket of admission which ujuy save his life, that he is to be refused read mission on mere technicality ? He held this act carried the admission of bills of exception; but if it did not, it certainly did not repeal the act of 1S00, which would now, combined with this act, bring in a bill of exceptions. Justice Agnew said that the act of 1800 did not bring up the bill of exceptions; then how were we any better off now than we were before? The writ of error under the common law had been decided. Have we anything more if we reopen the judgment ? Is this a pending writ of error, which was not a pending writ at the passage of the act? Does this act revive the writ? Docs it at all affect this case ? Mr. Miller replied that he believed this act was the same as in civil cases. Would not the reopening of the case on the new act involve the old writ of error ? Chief Justice Thompson said the trouble was in the fact that nt the time of the passage of the act of 1870 the writ was not pending. Mr. Miller then proceeded with his review of the law and evidence in the case, tho burden of his argument being in reference to the corpus delicti, entering into a scientific discussion of the merits of the test applied, aud the post mor tem examination. Dr. Aiken's test was faulty, and there were three important parts not exa mined. She might have died of Bright's disease, yet ber kidneys, the onlypart by which to ascer tain the fact, were not examined. Chief Justice Thompson observed that per sons so old seldom died of Brtgbts disease; and that it could always bo detected In tho waRting of the kidneys through urination. Mr. Miller cited the case of an old lady in New xork. Chief Justice Thompson remarked that it was to be regietted that we had not here a juris- .consult, as in other countries; because in pecu liar cases line tins lie never Knew a case in which medical men did not differ. Mr. Miller said there was not only an absence of symptoms of prusslc acid, but a complete contradiction. There was no foaming at the mouth no contraction of tho muscles. The de ceased lived for twenty-three hours after Dr. Sehoeppe left her, which shows conclusively that she did not die from prussic acid, because its victims always expire in from three to five minutes after its administration. There were no post-mortem appearances of morphia either; and it Is not pretended to prove this by vost-mortem examination. For this allega tion the symptoms alone were urged; aud there was not a symptom in favor of morphia that did not attend apoplexy. In reply to an allegation made by Mr. Shearer that the check was forged by Sehoeppe to pay her funeral expenses, Mr. Miller accepted the allegation, and said that the Court below should not have construed thii into a motive for the crime of murder. Tho argument then closed, the Court reserving tbcir decision. GENERALITIES. A Southern Mclioolmnnter. The Qulncy (Ga.) Monitor publishes tho fol lowing note from one of the State teachers in that county: air ana ianuy oir your compannv is Sirlisted to attend a School tabloo and Selebra tion nt My school House on Monday Night May tne 'tn at a u cicck. yours with Respects. Colored Doctors. The boldest speech made to the Medical Asso ciation in Washington, on the admission of colored men to membership, was by Dr. Sulli van, of Massachusetts. Among other things, he said that for hia part he would not refuse "to admit to tne deliberations ot tbls great scientific body, provided he came duly accredited thereto, an ourang outang with a tail ten feet long; and could tbe ourang outang f how an interesting caEe of disease of that tail, he 6hould be ready to examine that case with him, and receive all the light which his experience could shed upon it. He would say to mm gou 6peea in nis effort to heal on scientific principles the diseases of his brother baboons. A Thief In Grief. A thief came to grief under peculiar circum stances at ioit vayne the other day. Two drovers went to a caboose car at that place, having hung up in the car a carpet-sack con taining c 5U00. A lcllow wuo 6aw it managed to reach in and take the bag, and not content with one, went through a trap-door for another further off. A bull-dog, however, seized him in transitu from the rearward, and one of the drovers waking up saw the situation, drew a big knife and swore he would cut the thief's head oft If he didn't tell where the other sack was. Of course the thief told, and despite his pleadings was left in charge of the dog until the property was secured, lie was then released, a sadder man, and minus a quart of blood. Kteani vs. Muscle. Two young men from the country called in at a Detroit foundry a few days ago to get a piece of casting. Tbe employes were absent at their dinners, with the exception of the engineer, who was oiling uphis engine forf the afternoon's, work. It was running at full speed, and pump ing water into the boiler. Tbe country cousins looked with interest at its motions and the slow revolution of the large fly-wheel, and fell into a discussion as to the relative power of steam and human muscle. One of them finally offered to bet a dollar that he could "grab" the huge wheel and hold it. He stepped up to the engineer and abked permission to try it, which was readily granted, and taking off his coat and rolling up his sleeves, braced him self for the effort. A atchiug carefully until the right spoke came around, with a yell to encou rage himself, he clutched it. He didn't exactly stop the wheel in fact, he went over it with out stopping, and was discharged in a parabolic orbit, through space, coming down in a sand heap in the further part of the foundry. He was picked up a thoroughly disgusted man, and so lame that he was obliged to climb into his wagon at the back end, quite satisfied, however, that steam was too much for him. ' CENT.'S FURNISHING.

The pine tree baa long been known to pos Bess valuable medical properties. For pul monary diseases it la doubtful whether and remedy has as yet been discovered equal to it. It seems to change and renew the very struc ture on which it acts, and to infuse into the system an indescribable power equal to the natural power before disease had even taken hold of the body, so as to make, as it were, an entirely new tissue, and to give a newness of life and energy which one who has been sick a long time knows the value of but cannot fully describe. The great objection, however, to all tar preparations has been their nnplea snnt taste, and consequent liability to sickness and nanseate the stomach. We have before us, nowever, a preparation of the kind re ferred to, which obviates all these objections, and is as agreeable to the palate as it ia valu able in the cure of disease. We mean "Dr. Wishart's Tine Tree Tar Cordial." a real. genuine, bona jiae medicinal cordial, distilled from the pine tree by a process known only to the Doctor himself, the sale and popularity of which are only equalled by the amount ot suffering it has relieved, and the number of diseases it is so well calculated to effectually cure. In the Tine Tree Tar Cordial the in valid may be sure he has a remedy of very extraordinary power for throat and lung affec tions, and when taken in conjunction with the Great American Dyspepsia Pills," an infalli ble cure for dyspepsia, liver complaint, sick headache, and the many ailments arising from a disordered state of the liver and digestive organs. r In our sphere as publishers we feel some degree of cautiousness in what we recommend to onr readers, but when we know of any. thing of value to the publio we shall not hesi tate to make it known through onr columns. We advise those of our readers who are suffer ing from dyspepsia, etc., to give Dr. Wishart's celebrated remedies a trial. A medical expert, holding honorable colle giate diplomas, devotes his entire time to the examination of patients at the office parlors. Associated with him are three consulting phy sicians of acknowledged eminence, whose ser vices are given to the publio free of charge. This opportunity is offered by no other in stitution in the country. 'lnousands of certificates of absolute cure (when all else failed to afford relief), as well as recommendatory letters without number, nave been received by vt. vvisnart, tne pro prietor, attesting the uniform success with which they have been employed. Many of said letters are from the highest sources, in eluding eminent statesmen, Governors, State judges, clergymen, etc. men slow to be con vinced, prejudiced perhaps at first, but feel ing themselves under a sense of duty bound to tell the Doctor what they had done for them and to recommend them to others. The Great American Dyspepsia Fills and Tine Tree Tax Cordial are sold by all druggists throughout the world. They can also be obtained at Dr. WISHART'S GREAT FAMILY MEDICINE STOKE, No. 232 North SECOND Street, Philadelphia, where a successful practising physician can be consulted each day, free of charge.
