The meeting of the Evangelical Alliance In New .York, which la now In sestioo, is the most re markable religious convention ever beld In America, embracing representatives of ev ery obristlan sect In the world except the Soman Calbollo church. Representative men Irons every stale of Europe, and from America, all met under ooe common bond of brotherhood, for the purpose of effecting closer alliance of ail christian denomlna lions in order that they may procead in har mony In the great work of the world's re sumption. The New York Tribune says, lbs learn ing the piety of the leltb, aodjtbe loyalty to truth, and lb self-denying and aell-sacri flolog devotion to the church eri represent ed here In a Universal Congress, whose aim Is the promotion ol tLe Eiugdom of Peace nd the Brotherhood of Man. Higher mo tives or pumr purposes could be fovoked. For, however men may differ upon tbe coo troverted points of 0 aristton doctrine, bow over they may disagree t van upon what may be esteemed tbe und -mental truths ol Christianity, noons will deny that through Christian progress and Christian clvillxa lion the whale worfd ua been lifted to purer eoi belter living. Theaervlces are unusually Interesting but loo lengthy for us to give even syn opsis. We find the following highly compllmen lary mention of our former glltod low os women, Mrs. M. Carman and Mus M. U. Henderson, In tbe Patterson Daily Press, published at Palteison, New Jersey. The ooooerl wis given for the benefit ol Mr. Thomas Benson, and of tde part taken by those leliea that journal says: "Mrs. M. Carman delighted tbe audience with an exquisite soprano solo, The Chal t Horn, ooroet obligate being aouoded behind the scenes. Her sister, Mist Hen derson (a fine alto singer), accompanied ber to perfection an the piaoo. This was really Ibe gem ol the evening, and tbe au dlenoe fairly sprang to their leel at the close and insisted upon an encore. Mrs. German Is a beautiful and gracelul lady, and a most charming and aooompliabed linger. She Is a sister of Mrs. Walter Smith, of Hamburgh avenue, and is new cower to our oily." We are glad to learn of tba success these ladies are meeting with in the profession they have adopted, and at no distant day we predict they will stand second to noue among tbe list of musioians ol Patterson as they did In Petroleum Centre. Tbe Allegheny Valley (Railroad has coo ireoied for twelve oew looomotives, wbich will be pieced on tbe road shortly. The in. creasing business of the road demands these additional faollitles. A boy fell down a well at Uuntiogton, Pa , last week, dlataooe oflorty feet Ha.etcaped any serious Injury, 4eod when asked bow be got off so well, he replied, "I don't lruow,but I must bave slid .down Ibe pump." It la uow detiuilely aetiled that tbe lei graph wires In Germany are no lougtr to b. affixed to poles in ino 0Ja air but aie lo be underground. The Petroleum Centra Record says: "For some months pant we have not had a t'e.i rlcal entertainment or public exhibition of any kind la our town, Irmi the fact that tbe hall ageols, both in Titusville and Oil City, peisislently report to ell adveuce agents of troupes (bat tbere is no use in topping at tbe Centre, as tbe place was played out and abandoned." Any one would judge from tbe dolelul complaints and gecerel dullness of tbe Record that Ibe Cen tre is played out. They bave only taken the Record's word lor It- The above mean inueudo we find In Ibe Oil City Derrick, the big I and Tittle u of tbe oil region In lis own estimation, this morning. All of our readers know tbe Derrick's statement to be untrue, and that we have never made any complaiuis of dull times exoept when local option went Into force. That law burl the place and fur a time made things look as II we were lagging behind, but a change came and we think Petroleum Centre a fair average of Ibe oil towns of this region as a business poiut, In proot of waiob we are still issuing the Rec ord, and although not qnite so metropoli tan ( T) as that sheet, still manage to pub lish a 'dull' sheet and make a liviug at It. Our poiot In the above quoted paiagrapb was that the ageota ol tbe opera botuet, both in Oil City aud Titusville, lor the last year or more have made it a business to warn advance agents ot exhibitions not to stop at Ibis place as it was abandoned, hop ing by that meaos to induoe our citizens lo patroune their towos, or as the beg gars have it, "a few peuaies if you please, anything will help keep us alive at your expense." Of tbls fact we buve tbe woid of the most reliable advance agents on the road. Tbe Derrick man should remember lhal it received the nuoleua that gave it life in Petroleum Ceulre, and that it should not upon every occasion try lo belittle, slander and throw dirt upon those whom tbey still ssk patranage of on the score of "au:d lacg syne," A careful reader of that piper would also suppose tbe astute editors would find plenty to do to ooireot sod cull out lu own col umns, with misstating sod garbling tbe views of Its neigbbois, and then seeking to make capital by cotnmeoiiog on its own misstatements. Does the Derriok not know lbs! in their Paul Pry bunt after the morula and doings of their neighbors, they are neg. lectlog their own columns la such an extent that Ibe paper is not a desirable one for a lather lo take into bis family. Look over I Us columns tbls morning, lo fact any day, and you will Uud such choice expressions for tbe fireside reading of the elite young Indies ol Oil City as "It beats the devil bitnseir'; run Ibe entire couoern to tbe devil"; '-be damned if he wouldn't''; "rais ed bell," while oue woman Is quoted as saying she would spank another ol ber sex until tbe "devil's duett" would ring from tbe place. This is only a few choice ex pressioos auy of wbich cau be seen daily in this censor of a'l other papers In the region. "Ob wad the power," &a. A number of young ladies ol Macon, Ge., have resolved to attend tbe State Fair clad lu homespun. Duiutb comes up smiling and says: "Jay Cooke was only remotely oonneoted with our metropolis. Among- the new residences of Washington D. C, that of Senator Stewart of Nevada is tbe most ooospicuous and costly. A new version of "When Ibe swallows homeward fly," baa been dedicated to an obliging State Constable of Massachusetts.

It Is rumored that a movement is on loot toseoure ,tbe sUutllug down of wells in the lubrisatiog district until next spring. It is reported that over two-thirds of the oro- ducers favor tbe movement . Gen. N. P. Bauks is spokeu of as a can didate for the next Massachusetts Legisla lure (rum Waltbam. Tbe Eimira Advertiser of Thursday last says: "The oranizition known as the In dependeot Order of Red Men la increasing quite rapidly in this State. Within tbe last two mouths five new Iribes bave been established the last one being Teaseabuae Tribe, No. 19, of Buffalo, ol which Cnarles W. Uiusoa Is Saohem.

Tbn wrist and baud and fiugrrs are of no possible use, nay, they are a positive detriment as being in the way. There are two bullet boles through the left shoulder, both penetrating the large muscles which move tba arm and renJor it an im portaot Instrument la voluntary motion. The shoulder and arm are, therefore, pow erless and useless. Tbere Is a bullet bole through tbe large muscle i( tbe left leg tbe Calf wbicb trantfixed Ibe leg five or six laches above tbo ankle joint. It passed squarely through Ibe limb in tbe largest diameter. There is a bullet bole In the breast which must bsre glanced off from its first dlreotion, fur we see ouly a super ficial wouud. Then tbere was a bullet re ceived in tbe moulb, which tore tbe lower lip aud koocked out all the teuib in Ibe right side ol the lower j tw. B.it the bullet that oanie nearest the life of tuis man was ooe which struck Ibe left side of the neck anout midway between tbe cbin and breast bone, tore lis way between Ibe windpipe and the stomach lube, and came out on the side opposite its entrance bsving bored a tunnel Ibrongb snd between those two en trances to Ibe body without doing a fatal violence lo a vital orgao. These wounds so cursorially described were all received in one battle, thai of Murfreesboro, in tbu State of Tenuecsee, on tho 13th day ol July, ISC. Iiein. Ooe of the typical American snippers of tbe past recently entered Ibe Bayol Rio Janerio flying a flag wbicb was oot recog oiz.'d by Ibe of3ri of Fort Santa Cruz Tbey accordingly ordered biui to aocbor immediately. Nut understaudiug a word of Portuguese, the gentle captain just screamed out the name of bis ship and calmly sailed on. A blank, shot fired at him failed to in tbe language uf Mr. Wel ter's beautiful ballad "prewail on him to toy." But be was unserved to sain bis revolver and Instantly lira six successive shots into lbs air. Than the fort aul twi shore batteries joined in a duel of solid shot and wueu at last glie reached quarantines still firing his revolver, bis ship was in rather a dismantled coudition.
