f THEf PITTSBURG DISPATCH, MONDAY, JUNE 24, 1889. - V'-'H .ftat ' aH AN EIRLY PHOTOTYPE Of -that Terrible Battering Bam, the ' War Steamer Merrimac IXVENTIOK OF A PENXSYLYAHlAlf. His Pittsburg Descendants Join a Movement Upon Congress TO SECTJEE rnOMAS GREUG JUST CREDIT It is said that a memorial will be sent to the next Congress asking the Government to recognize Thomas Gregg, late of Connells Ville, Fayette county, Pa., as the inventor of the first iron clad ball-proof naval ram. Mr. Gregg was the grandfather of Mrs. D. P. Beigbard, Mrs. A. Hamilton and Charles LyUe, of Pittsburg, and father of the late Itev. John C Gregg, deceased, and grand father of J. B. and V. S. G. Gregg, of Philadelphia, and these latter, bnsiness men, are At the head of the movement. They submit as proof of claim a patent granted Thomas Gregg for a ball-proof vessel on the 9th of March, 1814, bearing the signatures of President James Madison, Secretary of State James Monroe, and Attorney General Bichard Bush. This patent it as renewed in 1837. ZTios. Gregg' Merrimac Thomas Gregg was born m Newcastle, Del., and being all his life an inventor, it is scarce necessary to say that he died poor. In early manhood he moved to Fayette county, this State, and made the first ham mer and nails used in Fayette county. He also made salt, but spent the most of his time making iron, and invented the first furnace ever used for smelting iron by use of anthracite coal. JUST HIS LUCE. He met the ordinary fate of inventors. "While on a visit to Delaware, his foreman, who had been left in charge to left the in vention, stole papers, patterns and'drawings and fled to England, where he made himself and others rich on the lruits 01 jut. liregg s genius. Mr. Gregg went on making iron, and during the "War of 1812 turned his attention to the subject of ball proof vessels, his labors culminating in the invention of 1813 and patent grant of 1814. In the Journal of the House of Representa tives, March 24, 1814, is the entry: Mr. "Wilton presented a memorial of Thomas Gregg, of Pennsylvania, stating that he had in vented a ball nroof vessel or floatlnc battery. and presenting a model for the examination of Congress and requesting that its efficiency may De tested by experiment. Ordered that sail memorial be referred to the Committee on iia 2 aval AIT airs, On March 25, 1814, Mr. Lowndes, of South Carolina, moved that the Committee on Ifaval Affairs be discharged from the con sideration of the petition of Thomas Gregg and that it be referred to the Secretary of the Xavy. Mr. Lowndes conceived a preju dice against the invention and became an enemy of Mr. Gregg, using all his influence to defeat his plans. The model presented was burned in 1836. In 1837 the patent was renewed. Commodore Dupont, of Delaware, tested Mr. Gregg's invention, and was so pleased with it that he commended it strongly to such lawmakers as A. Stewart, Tariff Andy and D. Surgen, of this State, and Messrs. Clayton and Bayard, of Delaware, urging them to push the claims oz the inventor. EEBS THE FIHST TO CATCH IT. The invention was described as ball-proof and impenetrable. In construction it was framed on an angle of 18 degrees all around the hull. The top timbers elevated the balls and the lower ones were designed to direct them under the keel. The power was applied between the keels, where there was a concave formed to receive the motive machinery, the power to be reversed to pro pel the vessel either way. The principle, it was claimed, protected men and machinery effectually, and was capable of performing more service than half a dozen vessels of that day. Either intelligence of Mr. Gregg's inven tion got over into Mills Creek and floated down to the Potomac and "on to Rich mond," or some old-time Southern states man recollected the idea and imported it to the Confederate authorities, and the result was the production of the terrible Merrimac The Scientific Amevican of May 24. 1864, seems to have been the first to fall to it, and said: In the course of onr investigations at the Patent Office we have come across a patent granted to Thomas Gregg on the 19th of March, 1S14, for an invention of a ball proof vessel to be propelled by steam, which on examination roves to be an almost exact model of the terrlmac The sides were to be plated with Iron inclined at an angle of 18 degrees. And the drawings show a sharp iron prow, evi dently to be used as a ram. This prototype of U1C MKSk U1UIUJU ,U U.liU JklVUlMSCLUre, lb Will be observed, was patented only seven years after the introduction of steam navigation. AFTEE JUST EECOGK ITION. The next number, of that journal, in a page devoted to the subject, headed "The Merrimac Patented 48 Years Ago," gave a cut labeled "The Early Prototype of "the Merrimac." Soon after the war some Pennsylvanians memorialized Congress, setting forth that Mr. Gregg had spent much money in his efforts to benefit the Government, aud like many other originators had died compara tively poor.and they asked that he be recog nized as the inventor of the ball-proof iron clad, and that a liberal appropriation be made to his widow who was in snch circum stances as to render her appreciative of such justice. The memorial still tl umbers in the waste lumber gallery along with the French spoliation claims and thousands of others lacking powerful lobby leverage. Bev. John C. Gregg 21 years ago wrote this of the invention and his father: "While sharp competition has been carried on both in France, England and this country as to ft ho is entitled to the credit of this invention which promises to revolutionize the old-established system of naval warfare, I humbly sub mit that a reference to the records of the Patent Office at Washington and to some indi viduals who are still living will incontestably establish the claim of Thomas Gregg and do justice to his genius as the real inventor. ON THE JOHNSTOWN PLO0D. A Pltubnrger Making Arrangements to Pub lish a Book Abont It. Frank Connelly, of this city, went to Philadelphia last night to make arrange ments for the publication of hiB book of the Johnstown flood. The work will be issned by Porter & Coates, of the Quaker City, ' and a well-known banking firm of this city is backing the project. The book will con tain a lull history of the flood, and will have over 200 steel engravings. The Sonls of Johnstown' Dead. 1ev. Mr. "Williams, of the TJniversalist Church, which holds meetings in the Union "Veteran- Legion's Hall, on Sixth avenue, preached Jast night on "Where Are the Soulslof the Dead at Johnstown?" The sermon J was a doctrinal discourse, drawn from material furnished by the. disaster. He said that the souls of all were with their God saved. Additions to the Workltoase. Magistrate John Gripp sent John Golden, Jack Jones, Charles Mnsner, James Con nors, Katie Meyers, Mary Williams and Michael .Kane for 30 days to the workhouse yesterday on various offenses. HARRISON'S The President Listens to a Sermon In a Church Balk by Mr. Wnnutunker A I'iensnnt Day nt Cnpe DIny AH Callers 10 bo Kecelred To-Dny. ' Cape May, N. J., June 23. A great xnanv people were disappointed this morn ing because the President and Mrs. Harri son did not worship at the Presbyterian Church here, as a rumor that they would do so had gone abroad. It had been arranged, however, that the Presidental partr should attend service at the Beadle Memorial Pres byterian Church at Cape May Point, which stands directly upon the beach within a stone's throw of the Wanamaker cottage. It not being very widelv known the beautiful little edifice was not" uncomfortably crowd ed. It was two minutes of 11 when the President, Mrs. Harrison, Mr. "Wanamaker, Mrs. Harrison's father, and Bev. Dr. Wylie came in. Dr. "Wylie is pastor of the Broad Street Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, and officiated on this occasion. The Bev. Dr. Scott sat behind the sacred desk with Dr. "Wylie. The pulpit was nicely decorated with blooming plants. The President and wife occupied the second pew, immediately in front of the speaker, with Mr. "Wanamaker on the right. Led by a small choir the services began bv singing "Praise God from whom all blessings flow," followed by a short prayer by the officiating clergyman! Hymn 83 of the church hymnal was then sung, beginning "Safely through another week God has brought us on our way." The scriptural lesson read was from the sixteenth chapter of Acts, beginning at the ninth verse. The venerable Dr. Scott then "offered a prayer, in which our land and nation, its President and the Government officials were remembered. After singing Dr. Wylie announced his text, found in Phillippians iv., 19: "But my God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus." The sermon was an able discourse de livered without notes and listened to with close attention by the President and Mrs. Harrison. After singing "God bless our native land" the services closed with the benediction pronounced by Dr. Scott. Beadle Memorial Church was built by Mr. "Wanamaker several years since in memory of Elias B. Beadle. D. D.. LL. D. After returning irom church the President and Mrs. Harrison and Mr. "Wanamaker took seats on the verandah, over which the cool refreshing sea breezes softly played. "William McKean, of the Philadelphia Ledger, and one or two other gentlemen were the only callers, it having been both the President and Mi. Wanamaker's desire that only a few personal friends be admit ted to-day. To-morrow forenoon, it is un derstood, the President will receive all who may wish to call. From all the surround ing country to-day visitors have come to catch a srlimpse of Cape May's distinguished guests. At 1 o'clock to-morrow the Presi dent will leave for , "Washington in Mr. Sewell's private car, bul has promised to re turn on Saturday. IT WAS TIME TO LEATE. An Unwelcome nnd Uninvited Guest Po litely bat Jflnnly Dismissed. Washujgtox', June 23. "Washington has been long notorious for a small class of hard-faced, persistent people who make the rounds of fashionable entertainments and receptions without either invitations or the acquaintance of the people upon whom they intrude. They are of both sexes, and are alike marked for their brazen audacity. One was well done up last season, and taught a lesson he will be slow forgetting. A certain club in the "West End is noted for its exclusiveness. At a dance given by it this bold intruder put in an appearance faultlessly attired and complacent in pros pect of a pleasant evening, topped off with a fine collation. Several of the floor mana gers happened together and attention was called to the conspicuous stranger, whom none of them knew. By a. comparison of notes it was quickly discovered that none of the authorized persons naa issuea mm an invitation, and only one knew even his name. That one approached him and asked: ""Will you inform me whose guest you are this evening?" The intruder hemmed and hawed, but did not afford the desired information. "You will have to pardon me," continued the gentleman, "but it is necessary to know the name of the friend who invited you here." Not receiving any satisfactory response, the floor manager continued: "You fail to see what I am trying to make plain to you, sir. You are one of a class in this city who force themselves into the society of people with whom they are not acquainted, and who come to exclusive entertainments without the formality of an invitation. Now, if you will take my arm I will conduct you to the cloakroom. If you should go alone it would cause com ment, but if you will take my arm people will think you are an acquaintance." The interloper took the proffered arm and vanished from the room. CAUGHT BY A SCHEMER. An Alleged Internal Revenue Collector Blackmails Jeannette's Illegal Snloons. ISrZCIAI. TELrORAMTO Till DISPATCH. 1 GBEENSBtTEG, Pa., June 23. The pro prietors of the "speak-easy" saloons at Jeannette have been operated upon by a sleek individual who drew irom them a liberal assessment to secure secrecy in their alleged offenses. There are abour30 illegal saloons in the town, and on Saturday a man representing himself to be a deputy internal revenue collector came upon them and as sured the breakers of the law that by pay ing him 550 each he would allow the sale to continue uninterruptedly. The scheme was successful, and the stranger left the town several hundred dol lars richer. A number of indictments are resting in the courts here against illegal liquor seller at Jeannette, and it is likely other informations will be made, as the kick made by the victims of the sleek stranger has revealed to the officers the location of several that were unknown.

The temperance people of Bedford had hardly recovered from the news of Tuesday's election when they got another black eye from the Court, who granted a hotel license to Captain Dex ter White, which was at the last term of court refused. White's attorney quietly awaited the chance to present the petition for a rehearing when the temperance people were most all out of court, but Uncle John Cessna dropped in during the proceedings and raised a racket, but with no effect. The license was granted, ana .Mr. White to-morrow will again commence to cater to the public Opposed to Firemen Painters. The German Trades Assembly held its regular meeting yesterday. A petition of the Painters Union, of Allegheny, to the City Councils of Allegheny, asking that the engine houses of that city be painted by skilled workmen instead of by the firemen, was indorsed. It was reported that the carpenters are having difficulty with Mr. Herman Straub, the Bloomfield brewer, who is said to be having a house erected by non-union men. The assembly decided to give the carpenters all the moral and finan cial assistance possible. It Was Only a Cat. Officer Boyd, of the Southside, was called to investigate a supposed burglary in a house on Wright's alley early yesterday morning. He lound Mrs. Smith and her family, who occupied the housr, standing on toe sinewaiK. xney claimed tnat there nas a burglar in the cellar, and that they had escaped. The officer entered the cellar and discovered a cat with its head fastened in a fruit jar, making a noise that sounded something like burglars. It was released, and tbe family re-entered their hone.

IN EARNEST AND ANXIOUS TO SUCCEED (SPECIAL TELEGRAM TO THE DISPATCH.! New Yobk, June 23. During the past few weeks, dark-fealured women in the garb of Sisters of Charity have been going through the Italian quarters in the Bend and in Little Italy, climbing up dark,, sleep and narrow stairways, diving down into foul basements and into dens which even a New York policeman does not care to enter without assistance. These women are all slight and delicate. They wear a peculiar veil, unlike that of the usual re ligious devotees, aud few can speak English. They are members of an order entirely new to this country, the Silesian mission aries of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. It is an Italian organization of nuns who looK after the welfare of orphans, and all that are en gaged in this work are of Italian birth. The half dozen located in this city are pioneers in the United States, and they came upon the solicitation of Archbishop Corrigan and Mrs. Luigi P. Di Cesnola, wife of General Di Cesnola, the director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art BEQTJESTED BY THE AECHBISHOP. The Archbishop and Mrs. Di Cesnola wrote to Lombardy, the headquarters of the missionaries, last November, requesting that a branch be established in this country. They were induced to this because of the terrible condition in which many poor Italian children were in this city. Of the many thousands of Italians in New York a very large majority were sunk in extreme poverty and snnalor. This was particularly so in the case of those newly arrived in this country. Una ble to provide, with any degree of decency, for themselves, they, of' course could do lit tle for their children, and these were al lowed to grow up in abject ignorance. Many were abandoned or driven forth into the streets of the big city to beg or steal the means of subsistence. v One cannot walk the streets without en countering hundreds of little Italian boys whose only knowledge of English lies id tbe ?hrase: "Shina boota, fiva centa, mista." he pennies tbey collect are not their own, but go to some padrone who supplies their outer outfits and gives then a mere pittance of the small amount they earn. Of the Italian girls who are HOMELESS AND FOBSAEE2T their misery may not be so apparent, but it is even greater. The Silesian missionaries came here in March, hut were not able to begin opera tions until some time later. They now oc cupy a large yellow stone house on East Twenty-ninth street, near Park avenue. It is rather cold and forbidding looking on the outside, but the interior is bright and cheer ful. The floors are stained, and rugs are scattered around plentifully. The Ameri can contingent is Sister Frances Xavier Ca brini, Superior General. She is a dsrk-hued, but sympathetic woman, with large, coal black eyes and a winning smile, She cannot talk English. She is very much in earnest, and anxious that her mission should be suc cessful. As soon as the branch here is firmly established she will return to Europe, leaving another missionary in charge here. She is the founder of the order, and has done wonderful work in providing refuges, for "our object," she said, "is to rescue the Italian orphans of the city from the misery and dangers that threaten them, and to make good men and women of them. At present we are especially ANXIOUS ABOUT THE ITALIAN OTBLS who have no decent homes, but later on we shall look out for the boys also. We in clude, under the title of orphans, not only the fatherless or motherless, but also the children that are abandoned or whose parents do not properly care for them. We have .found that many children are abandoned shortly after they reach this city. Their parents who have come here expecting to be rich immediately, now learn tneir mistake, ana being unprovided with money, they set the children adrift to care for themselves. Then, too, there are many poor Italians who are barely able to supply food for the numerous mouths dependent on them, and they are glad to let us take some of their children and bring them up properly. Of late things have been somewhat better, because of the work of the Italian priests who came to New York at the request of the Pope, but there is still a great deal to be done. THE MODE OP "WOEK. We take children between the ages of 4 and 15 years, house, feed and clothe them, aud train them, mentally and physically, so that they may be good citizens and good members of the church. Our mode of work is to go right down into the Italian ?uarters, And go from house to house, rom apartment to apartment. We are recognized by all Italians, and many of them are glad to see us. We try to learn about all the Italian children we meet, whether they have proper homes and proper schooling, x nave saia that we are especia 1 ly anxious about the girls just now, and the reason must be apparent. The temptations that a big city like this offers to poor, ignor ant girls of any nationality, are very great, and to abandoned Italian girls, who have no means of livelihood and are ignorant even of the language of those around them, they are terrible. At present our means are limited, as we depend entirely upon PEIVATE SUBSCBIPTIONS, but all the Italians of wealth approve of our course, as well as the Carbolic clergy, and we hope soon to be able to do more. As soon as our means will afford, we intend to have a larger house, where we can accom modate all the children that come to us." The work of these women is very trying, and has many hardships. Any one who has ever been in tbe Italian quarters where these missionaries go, can realize something of the unpleasantness of their task. Sky scraping tenements in which hun dreds of . families are huddled together, ill-smelling rooms, drunken men and surly women all these must be encountered on every trip. "Many of these Italians, too, have abandoned all religion and are atheists. They have no sympathy with the meek, kindly-faced women who de vote their lives to charity, and frequently are very gruff in their behavior toward them. Still the missionaries persist in their worK, ana try to save the children or even these men, unmindful of the jeers and even Apollinaris "THE QUEEN OF TABLE WATERS. "People cannot hearken too earnestly to the WARNINGS already sounded by medical men against the indiscriminate use of the ALLEGHENY WATER at this time." " Dr. W. T.

TUT i T. 1 ' SH How a Forger Expresses His Confidence That lie Will Escape From Justice Be Knows Too Much to be Prosecuted A Gener ous Iadlvldaal. Los Anoeles, Oat, June 23. A. C. Williams, arrested some days ago for forg ing the name of Arthur Gorham, of Boston, for a draft of $500, has made another state ment of events leading up to his arrest. He states that he nursed Gorham for a month while the latter was sick and that Gorham, on recovering, was very grateful and prom ised to provide for him all his life. Gor ham sent him on a pleasure trip to London with William Prosser, a nephew of Baroness Hastings and he (Williams) remained in London several weeks. He then returned to go on the stage in Chicago, but Gorham persuaded him not to take this course and gave him more money. Williams then concluded he would go to Australia and Gorham purchased a ticket for him, signing his own name to the ticket for him. Williams says Gorham then wrote out papers for him to sign releasing Gor ham for a nominal amount from all claims for services rendered. Gorham said he wished to show this paper to his brother Jum, who was greatly opposed to Williams. He promised to give Williams ?15,000 in two years if he would sign the paper, and also give him $5,000 the third year. Will iams said he signed the document at A. C. Blake. .Gorham then gave him $3,000 and both went on a spree. The next day, when Williams left for Los Angeles, Gorham gave him a check for $100.

Our White Sale still goes on, and we quote from a friendly writer the follow ing complimentary description: In the so-called "White Opening," ad vertised for Saturday, Jnne 22, Messrs. Fleishman & Co. have surpassed even them selves; for apart from the enterprise and un doubted originality of the idea, its beauty and artistic merit would entitle it to especial notice. The beautiful stores might now be fitly termed "A Symphony in White," and it is a positive revelation to see ttje many charm ing effects that genius can produce in merely different tones of the same color and that color white. In the center of the room stands a tree of white blossoms, and in its foliage are cun ningly arranged numbers of little birds for trimming hats. In the turf at the foot of the tree are beds of marguerites, sprays of creamy roses, huge white peonies, mystio lilies, apple blossom and white lilacs. These, we understand, have been furnished and so tastefully arranged by John B. & A. Murdoch, the well-known florists, ol, No. 508 Smithfield street. Near by is a silver fountain that sends forth a fragrant stream of violet water at which the ladies pause to dip their handker chiefs as they pass. This fragrant perfume is of the celebrated manufacture of Colgate & Co., whose soaps and perfumeries have a world-wide reputation. Fleishman &Co's.
