The Company jtuined a new trial, and a few days since he obtained a second verdict for slo.dOO. The Courts of Mary land hold the injury of a racing marc at i.iore than five times the value a Pennsylvania Legislature did that of a citizen, passenger on the railroads of this State. The following good jury story is credited to California: The jury had been out for some time, when the Sheriff was despatched by the Court to see if they were likely to agree, lie found them performing a sort of triumphal march round a big bottle of whiskey, from which they had all been copiously imbibing, to the music of a file and drum, the latter instru ment being borne on the back of the foreman and vigorously pounded by the next juror, while the rest of the happy baud were singing, "We couldn't agree upon a verdict nohow, M was this affable foreman's explana tion to the Court, "and we didn't think it was any hurt for to have a social time s'long's we was acon gcii'l party." .M lxiE Kicii.utpsos having resign ed his position as Secretary of the Treasury, the President on Monday 1 i.-t, (1st inst.,) nominated Benjamin II. P.rislow, of Keutucky, as his suc cessor, and appointed Kiehardson to the vacant Judgeship of the Court of Claims. The nomination of Kris tow was unanimously confirmed by the Senate, nnd Judgo Kiehardson was also confirmed by a majority of M'vcn, all of the Democrats and a few Kopubliean Senators voting cgainst him. Col. Kristow, the new Secretary id the Treasury, is of old Kentucky Whig stock, and raised and comman ded with distinction, a regiment of volunteers during the late war. He was formerly Solicitor General, but resigned that position aud returned to the practice of law at Louisville. Ho is a gentleman of culture and fine legal attainments, and was named by the President as Attorney General w hen. last fall, Attorney General Wil liams was nominated for Chief Justice of the Supreme Court His appoint ment as Secretary of the Treasury appears to give very general satisfac tion, aud it is hoped will assist to re lieve the financial muddle from which the country is suffering. Speaking on the subject of health in our schools, the Laljrr, Philadel phia, says: A copious supply of f re-h air shouy be had by scholars, winter and summer, as a corrective of the lassitude, weariness, head aches, and tendency of tho blood to the head, which nearly all parents find in their children, especially the girls, after long fessions in poorly ventilated class-rooms. Many of the chronic maladies which affect men and womca in the maturer years of life arc now clearly traccr.b'e to their school days, aud to the defects refer red to.

The Presbyterians if the annexed article be true arc attempting to j dodge the issue, and have put in a plea in avoidance, that is sure to re turn at no distant day to plague the church. The Kaltimore Aiu rri an .thus summarises the late proceedings of the General Assembly of that church on the subject: Tlit Presbyterian General Assembly lias declined to answer the very embarrassing question projtouuileil by one of the Illin ois Presbyteries concerning woman's ridit to exhort nnd pray in public. The Hock Hiver brethren desire to know whether a literal interpretation of the language of St. Paul would not prohibit women from preaching, exhorting or praying in a pro miscuous assemblage. This overture was referred to a committee, of which the learn ed and polished Dr. Howard Crosby was chairman. Dr. Crosby is a celebrated (reek scholar, and be did not care to im peril liis standing among linguists liy at tempting to soften down the restrict ion laid iqion women by the Apostle, and he repor ted that a literal interpretation of the pas sage referred to doc prohibit women from preaching, exhorting or praying in pro miscuous assemblages. This rcKrt was warmly debated, but the accuracy of Dr. Crosby's interpretation was not questioned. The real matter at issue (although not ex pressed in wordsl was whether Paul's in junction was binding on the Christians of this age, or whether it was ir.Ur.ded tor a state ot society that no longer exists. The General Assembly refused to send out Dr. Crosby's report as a law for the churches, but udoptcd a substitute offered by Dr. Aiknian, which fcives discretionary jiower to pastors and elders to crinit women to preach, exhort or pray m promiscuous as semblages, or to prohibit them. OI R SEW YORK I.FTTI.K. Xew'York, June 2, 1S74. THE STAtiE MOVERS" STRIKE. Last Monday the stage drivers' of New York struck for an advance of wages. They had been receiving $2,50 per day, and struck for $3,00. Monday and Tuesday the hundreds of thousands of people who depend up on the stages, to get up and down town, were compelled to fall back upon the street cars, or walk. Half took the street cars and the other half plodded their weary way on foot. It is singular how little a thing makes or mars the happiness of the denizen of Gotham. In this matter of transportation, for instance, any thing that interferes with it, in how ever slight a degree, works discom fort to the whole city. The transpor tation capacity is deficient at best, and if any one of the means of going to and fro is withdrawn, all the other methods are overburdened to an un bearable degree. Hence the public shuddered when the stage drivers dismounted from their boxes, nnd the stages stopped. Kroadway immedi ately assumed a queer aspect. You could actually cross it in safety. The thousand stages taken off, so re duced the number oi vehicles, that the street lost its crowded appear ance and liccame a quiet orderly place. The drivers ought to have got the advance they asked for, for their is nothing in the wav of labor, so severe as theirs. They are seated on their boxes, though it may rain, hail or shine, seventeen hours each day, ex cept Suhday, and the skill required is very great. It is no small matter to guide a stage through the great cruiih of vehicles th at crowd Kroad way with one eye on one side aud the other on the other watching for pas sengers. It is a trade that requires years of practice. The strike revealed a queer thing. The custom has always been for the drivers to receive fares. You got in to the stage and poked your ten cents up through a hole to the driver, who deposited in a box, and was supposed to turn it over to the proprietors at the end of the round. So long as this way of doinir thinrs continued the Jehus never said anvthing about ' wages. They were satisfied with ?2,f0 per day, for they paid them selves, such a salary as they saw fit. They turned over aUhe end of the trip what they pleased. Uut last fall the proprietors,put in each stage, a glass-box, into which the passengers deposited their own fare. Then was no more ' knockingdown." The driver got his f2,.ro pi r d.iy, and' nothing more or less. Then he struck i for more pay, and for two days the! public did without stages ' f course the drivers w ere beaten. There arc to-day, fifty thousand able bodied men in New York with noth ing to do, who would jump at the chance to get work nt $l,f0, no mat ter wha! a. might be, and the compa nies found enough capable of doing this Work, and they mounted them at once, tuid on Wednesday the trouble was over. Speaking of drivers there is a lc- pend connected with Col. Kion, of the old firm of Kipp t Krown, the oldest stage proprietors in this city. In those days the fare was six pence. Kipp was on a hay loft at the termi nal stable, and lie observed -,i unver who had just made his trip and put out his horses, take out his box to make Lis return to the cashier. lie emptied out a pile of silver sixpences aud in an audible voice said: " I his is f ir old Kipp; this for me," and soon till he had divided the pile in two parts. There happened to be an old sixpence, ".hall I give this to oli Kipp, or shall I keen it. he said to himself. ''Old Kipp is a pretty good man he shall Lave it. o, i guess not. It's been a hot day, and I want a mug of ale, and I'll keep it. Just then Kipp slid down to him. "John" said he, "you arc discharg ed. You'll never drive stage for me a?ain. I don't object to an even vide, but I want you to understand that if their is an odd sixpence, it's mine. (Jet out you thief." Aud the driver went his wav sad- Iv. j Speaking of j "KN'OCKINU IoWX," , as this kind of thieving is called, it per vades almost all kinds of, business. Anent the stage drivers strike, I had a conversation with a street car con ductor yesterday. "Lverv bodv knocks down, was his frank confession. "Uut what stops vou of taking all you want?" said I. "The money ail passes through your hands and there is no way of checking it." "Averages do it," was his reply. "They know what every trip ought to yield. Take a fair, cool day, aud less people take cars than in rainy or hot days. But the owners know just how much money will get into this car this day, and I return money to that amount. If my return is less than the man behind me, 1 go. The average is exact, and we make it. You have noticed how anxious we arc to "crct passengers. That is to make a trip above the average. "Aud the amount above the aver age?'' A significant cough was his an swer. " e hate to have new men conic on the line," he continued; ' because they turn over for the first week or to all that thev collect, and the company growls at the rest of us. But we make em knock down to the point , or we make it Lot for em Tl e conversation was interesting to me, and I wanted to continue it but ray conductor caught site at this moment of a fat woman, two squares off, who. mas making a frantic effort to reach the car. and he stopped for her. Her six cents was what he wanted to help swell his average, and he got it. But you can sec what chance there is for a man to keep honest under a svstem that compclls iiini to be a thief in order to retain his place And speaking of L.vnoit, Don't let any young or old man come to get work at this time. 1 here is scarcely any building in progress. Trade is so wretchedly dull that man ufacturers are discharging hands dai ly. This is true of all the trades and occupations. There are more than fiO.OOO men doing nothing in Xcw York this moment, and the number is increasing hourly. Keep away from New York. Living is fearfull v high ; labor is scarce, and wages low. Think of the case of poor Adolph Lessure, yesterday. He landed wit! his wife and two children four -.veck.- ago. He was a skilled cabinet maker, but could get no work. I hey con sumed the little monev thev had, of course, and Adolph begged. Finally, last Tuesdav he got something to do, and he went Lome jovfullv to his wife to tell her that at least they had their bread assured. She asked him what the wages were, and he told her, aud ran away to his newly found work. He returned at niirht, and found his children crvin? and callintr for their mamma. Half suspecting what had happened, he rushed into their wretched bed-room and Lis worst fears were realized. On their poor bed lay his wife, dead, a pan of char coal explained her death, and on tho stand a note addressed to bim with these words: Dear Ahou-h : The wages wiil just Iced and clothe you and the children. I go. farewell! Marie. And so it was! The poor woman, loving her husband and children bet ter than she loved herself, deliberate ly embraced the hereafter rather than to shorten their supplies by the amount that she should consume. Poor woman! Let us Lope that in the next world the crime of seli'inur der will be balanced by the motive that led to it. MODERX PRINKIXii CUSTOMS. The drinking customs of society form a curious topic of study. One hundred years ago people of Anglo Saxon stock drank coarse, alcoholic drinks to the most beastly excess. The habit was universal, aud practic ed openly and without disgrace. Men of all degrees literally u alloucil in drunkenness, and the number of bottles a sound drinker could put under his belt and live was a matter of proud uoasting. Tho refinement, and. it may be added, the hvpocrisr, of modern society Las changed all this, nnd made it disreputable to drink deeply, and, in many parts of our own coun try, to drink at all. But in fact is there less consumption of alcoholic drinks than went on a century ago ? I believe the amount consumed will be found to be about the same per head, and that the various temper ance movements Lave not essentially lessened the amount used. The way of using it has changed and what was formerly practiced openly is now done in secret, and orgies which would have set Knglish society a blushing in the time of the Georges, are now occuring under the safe roofs of many a brown stone dwelling along the avenues. I know a lady and she is not the only one of great ' attractiveness and power, well born, ! well bred and imparting all "race to a high social station, who goes to In-d with almost nightly regularity in s situation oi inebriety. Jler husband and a few intimate friends know of her misfortune, and all means Lave failed to cheek her secret consump tion of wine. If we could lift off the roofs ofthe Louses ofthe great city, here secrecy is easy and temptation:; thick and powerful, we should be staggered at the disclosures, and be lieve what I think is true, that while society change and modifies viees it has ns. many nt one time as an other. 1 And now that I think of it, I don't believe that utinking is any more a secret than it used to be. Walk through Water or any of the low streets in Xew York and you will sec whole blocks of rum mills, at which liquor is sold openly and with out concealment. (Jo up into the re spectable portion of the city, and it is just as bad. There is not a : block on Broadway which docs not contain a dozen, and oa the side streets the number L; c.ppalling. A man doing business on Wall Street, and living in Fourteenth, w ill jiass on the way up town, not less than two-hundred drinking places. And they all do business. They pay from $."j000 ti $12,000 per annum rent, and the amount of alcoholic beverages that niu-t be sold to pa)' this expense may be imagined. The milleiiiiini is not yet at hand. THE WEATHER continues glorious. New York has the most magnificent springs of any city on the globe. The weather is warm, but the air is bracing and healthy. But woe to the dwellers here a month hence. Pietro. OI K IVAMUMiKlV I.ETTEK. Washington, 1. C, June 9. We have to report continued dullness in Congress, as regards questions of importance to the general w elfare, though some of the debaU-s have been of local interest, and others not with out a touch of tartness and humor. Thus there was the question of pass ports furnished to people who are go ing aboard. Years ago the price- of a passport was $2. then during the war it was raised to $.", and after wards pas-sports were made free. The proposition was to renew tho fee of $".nnd one would nut think there was much milk in a cocoanut of that kind; but there was. Butler wanted to raise the price to $20, because it would fall on the rich, who aio the only people who go aboard, and be cause it would tend to keep people at home. People he said, go on abroad and spend their money and impover ish the country, and buy all their clothes there, thus cheating the tail ors, and the weavers at home, of their chance of work, and robbing the government of revenue, while they get false and aristocratic notions in to their Lead-, and all sorts of ex travagant and oolish ideas. At this Holman oi Indiana, plumped down upon Butler,ou accusation that he was the enemy of the poor naturlued man, who after having been ir. this coun try a few years and voted, wanted to return to the old country and dis play the broad seal of the Slate De partment to the astonished gaze of the potentates of Kuropc, as evidence of citizenship and to protect them from the tyranny of Kuropean Mon archies, and Butler, he said, wanted these poor men to pay their $20. for the privilege. Then Butler said if a man was poor he could go without a passport, as four fifths or them did, and llolman said Butler's face was as good as a passport, but the joke about Huller's face is so old that no laughed. The amount of it all was that -10,000 persons go abroad of whom 0,000 get passports, aud the rest go without. A tax of $.", would probably induce the whole to go without, and a tax of $2, would yield ten or twelve thous and dollars. The price was fixed at $.". There was some debate on the "bark" question in which Butler, Conger, Bradly and others, embarked in the interests of their constituents. The New York and Michigan farmers are in favor of a tariff upon bark, and the Kastern tanners and shoe manufacturers are opposed to it. Mr. Conger was the champion of the farmers, and carried his point. After so many month's of rumro concerning the intentions of Mr. Kiehardson. he has at last coueluded to leave the treasury. Jle was nom inated judge of the Court of Claims, and Mr. Kristow of Kentucky for Secretary, on Monday. Bristow as Solicitor General, made favorable im pression Lere,'as he is able, genial, and popular iu manners. Consider ing the panic, Mr. Kiehardson leaves the Treasury in good condition, the debt the past year having been' re duced two and a half millions. General Butler got a bill to a third reading on Monday to allow women to practice law in the U. S. Courts. Mr. Dawes pushed through the Tariff bill on the same day, ami a large busi ness was done with many measures of minor importance. We have to report a case of unhap piness Dawes, of Mass. Four j'cars ago.'hc opened up on the Chorpen ning claim aud staked his reputa tion before the country, that it was a fraud. " He made out, that tho man had not done half the service he pre tended; Lad been more than twice paid andwasclaiming.it the third time; that he smuggled bills through Congress, right under the very nose of Dawes himself, and then bam boozled Creswcll into making him an award of halt a million, when ho had been doubly paid already. Dawes said he bad the proofs, and said it so boldly, that no one disputed him, and Chorpenning and his claim went into history as frauds, with Creswcll nick-named after him as a co-swindler. In his stump siteeches, Mr. Dawes from that day made a great handle of vigilcnco iu, the mat ter or this claim, and thought folks could'nt sec exactly Low lie made out that Chorpenning Creswcll was all right, and Chorpenning alone a stupendous fraud, they accepted the latter as a fixed fact But Chorpenning , demanded a hearing, aud kept demanding,' w hile Dawes stood up and threatened anni hilation to the man who should ven ture to ask it for him. This session however, Johu Cessna not having the fear of Dawes before his eyes, got in a petition for a hearing, for his., con stituent, and .Lad it referred,. to the Judiciary Committee. Thi commit tee has eleven lawyers on it, the greatest in the Jlonse; among them Butler, Poland, Frvc, Tremaine, Clarkson N. Potter "and Eldridge. republicans nnd democrats. They investigated. They asked Dawes for his "proofs," but Dawes never came, nor bis proofs. , lhey asked again, but there was no answer. They read his old speech, and studied it, and analyzed it, and got all the evidence they could hear of, and then reported to the House, that Chorpenninr chal lenged the severest scrutiny, submit ted himself for examination, demand-. fwl o full intrnclirmftrtn nnl o Ti ... 11 I their search and effort, they had their search unanimously concluded that the Gov- ernmeut was in debt to him. This conclusion knocks Dawes off his stilts, and into the mud. He thinks the man has been over iaid, and twice paid, and Las Lumbugged a w hole Congress, and he Las the proofs; but a dozen able lawyers after examining the papers, with Dawr.s' rlub over llu ir heads, find that his proofs are no proofs, and that Chorpenning has been improperly aud illegally kept out of his. money for many years. Such a rejiort in the face of the public sentiment, could only come from deep Teonviction, ntid it leaves Dawes in a sad plight, as he must have prostitu ted his influence and talents to deny justice to a citizen and rob him of his good name at the same time. They reported a bill sending the case to tlic Court of Claims to fix tho amount on the evidence, and as tho only thing against the claim, is the stump speech of Dawes, Chorpenning will get his money, the committee of law yers imt regarding that ; peci b as roof. Holiest John Cr.-.-ua has. made his mark, by courageously meeting the violent and unreasoning opposition loan investigation of this claim. On Thursday, Mr. Prist w, the new Secretary of the Treasury sli p ped into the shoes of Mr. Kichard.-on. Th! contrast in personal appearance of the two, is as marked as the dili'er enrc in public favor. Kiehardson is a pale faced, diminutive person, and Kristow a ruddy bluff-looking Kentucky giant-like person, who could hold his own in a wrestling or boxing match with the best of them. He received the Bureau officers with cordiality and ease of manner, and produced a favorable impression. Mr Kiehardson has been more pop ular in the Department than Boutwell, but owing to the panic and the state of finances he has had a rough time generally, and thedemands upon him, no Secretary could have satisfactorily met. The Illinois editors, and their wives, have been here on an excur sion, and visited the White House under the escort of the gallant Sena tor Logan, marching up there in tin? rain from Willard's. Both Houses have be?:i discussing Internal Improvement measures, the opening of the mouths of the Missis sippi being the principal. I Ins open ing of mouths it is contended, will greatly facilitate the feeding of the hungry, but the opening of so many mouths iu Congress is likely to result in keeping the Mississippi mouths closed another year. Baker, the ridiculous Commissioner of Pensions, still holds on. but only by the eyelids. He will have to drop. His support by Delano, killed Delan- oe's chances for being Secretary ofthe Treasury, so the lattr-r can see how much he has made by trying to float dead wood. Assistant Secretary Sawver has tendered his resignation. H. B. M. lcim3 I tan in ICoNcrvcN. Bkm.efonte, June -1. The ninth annual reunion of the Pennsylvania reserves, held in this charming town to-day, surpassed any former meetings of that association. A detailed de tachment of cadets from the agricul tural college fired a morning gun. at snnrise and a national salute at noon. Business was entirely suspended and thousands of people from this and adjoining counties thronged the streets during the day and evening. From every house in and about the town flags were displayed and arches of bunting with appropriate words of welcome suspended in the streets. Never did a people give greater evi dence of resrard for the veterans of the corps. A procession nearly a mile long, consisting of reserves and other soldiers of the war of 1S12, a section of artillery and citizens on foot, paraded the principal streets, with eleven bands of music playing lively and patriotic airs. Gen. W. H. Blair acU'd as chief marshal. In the court house yard were long rows of tables loaded with provisions, which Were served to the soldiers by the fair ladies of Centre county. In the afternoon the busi ness meeting of the association was held iu the court house, President Currin in the chair. The address of welcome delivered by (Jen. James A. Beaver and song composed for the occasion by Mr. Joseph W. Fury were vociferously rpplaudcd. The oration of Col. B. A. M'Coy was a most creditable effort. He re viewed many recollections of other days well nigh forgotten. He stated this fact not generally known that while the reserves fired the first shot of the army of the Patomac the first flag of truce receivedjfrcm Gen. Lee at Appottomax court house was through the pickets of the veteran reserves. Speeches were made by Col. Mann, of Philadelphia, and tx-Govcrnor Curtin. While they were speaking Col. W. Forney, of the Philadelphia iV xs, entertained the thousands w ho could not get inside with an able and elo quent speech. Never was such en thusiasm displayed, especially when the speakers referred in a kindly man ner to the people of the south. The utterances of Gen. Beaver, who lost a leg in the service, could not have been of a more friendly character. Mr. Curtin was rc-eleeted president of the association. The following ad ditional officers were re-elected: Yicc rr. s'dcnts. Col. Wm. B. Mann, Captain Wm. M'Clelland, Colonel John Taylor; secretary, Charles Dcvine; recording secretary, Colonel Chill Hazzard; treasurer, J. H. Killingsworth. The committee ad journed to meet nt Williamsport on the first ruesday of June next. Gen eral Martin D. Hardin, of Chicago, was elected orator, with General Jesse Merrill as alternate. Subse quently the procesion reformed and lifter parading a short time halted in front of Governor Curtin's elegant mansion where speeches were deli er cd by that gentleman, Col. Forney, Hon, W. Mackey, Chaplau Keale and Gen. Ilartshorne. In the evening the display of fire works was the grandest ever seen outside of Philadelphia, nt the time tin; different bands were serena ding the citizens and ' distinguished visitors, of whom there were quite a number. This demonstration shows w hat an affection exists for Pennsyl vania's great war government. There was no disturbance on the streets. Bellcfontc being a local op tion town, nor any of that disorderly conduct which generally manifests itself on such occasions. But three of the reserve soldiers were present from Western Pennsylvania. Ksillrmul Litigation. The action in ejectment brought by tho Mouut Pleasant and Broad- ford Railroad Company against the Lonnellsville Kailroad Company was tried iu Greeusburg last week, and on Saturday the jury returned a ver dict for the plaintiff." Judge Sterrett, of this county, wlio occupied thci Bench, instructed the jury that the Counellsville Company had violated the terms ofthe leaso by which the Mount Pleasant and Broadford Koad was held, in not furnishing requisite rolling stock and not paying the ren tal at the time agreed upon. The case, will go to the Supreme Court on a writ of error. Nnnlrr In llrookijn. Nkvv York, June 2. Mrs. Michael Devine, who lives with her husband, and three children at No. ?," North Eighth street, Brooklyn, K. D., this morning, shortly after arising, came behind her husband and struck him a violent blow on the head with a cooper's adze. He rushed to t e Sta tion house and had his wound dress ed. Oliicers immediately start. 1 for the house, and on arriving there dis covered that the woman had murder ed her three children Maggie, James and Timothy aged, respectively, seven, four and two years old. It appears that after her husband left the houso she seized a large flatiron and beat the children's bruins out wilh it. On being asked why 'sh had murdered her children sin? said that she wad going to Heaven, and wanted her children to go before her. Devine's skull is fractured, and his injuries will probably prove fatal. He has been on a strike for a week past, and thinks that led to his wife's de rangement. It has been ascertained that Mrs. Devine was about a year ago an inmate of the King's County Lunatic Asylum, and was thought to have entirely recovered. She is only twenty-six years of age. It appears that only Devine and his wife arose early, and while the latter was pre paring breakfast they had a discusion about his resuming work. When he thought the matter had been dropped she came suddenly behind him and dealt him two powerful blows on the head with a cooper's hammer, frac turing his skull front and back. While he w as out to the Station House she took a flatiron in each hand, and going to the bedroom where her children were sleeping, absolutely pounded their brains out. The skull of the eldest child, .Maggie, was mash ed into small pieces, and the faces of the other two were hardly recogniza ble. Blood was spattered cVer the walls as high as the ceiling. The husband was removed to a hospital, and is said to be sinking fast. rorrrlri ly a 1'ruuny Ivmilim. A I'nited States Government Ser vice detective arrived in New York with a warrant from Governor Hart ranft, of Pennsylvania, for Levi Saunders a wealthy cattle dealer at Waynesborough, Franklin County, Pa., charged with extensive forgeries on the Franklin County Bank, at Chambersburg. The officers tracked him from New York to the Suspen sion Bridge, Niagra Falls, and found him boarding on the Canada side, under the name of Jarvis Stevens. The postmaster on the American side enticed Lint across to get a letter, and he was arrested as he was stepping off the Grand Trunk cars. He was taken to Pennsylvania under the re quisition upon Gov. Dix, and after being fully identified was locked up in the Franklin County jail on Satur day. The prisoner has 1 ecu a fugitive since lsT2. He is charged, among other acts, with having forged the signatures of Simon Lccrono and J. Nieodemus, two rich Pennsylvania stock speculators, as indorsement on five checks of $2,f00 caeh, which he drew on the Union Bank of Philadel phia, where he had an account. He passed four of thenotcson the Frank lin County Bank, but on presenting the fifth one Mr. Johnson, the bank cashier, refused to discount it, because of some disrepaney in the figures. Subsequent investigation revealed all the forgeries, and also showed that Saunders had personally sent all the checks, except the four named, a day before they matured at the Union Bank. Saunders is also accused of stealing several thousand dollars be longing to an estate for which he was assignee. Detectives have been look ing for him for two years. A Fallier null Itauglitrr Killed. PiTTsiiLtniii, June C. Coroner Mc Cillin yesterday was summoned to Long Kun Station, on the Connells- ville Kailroad, four miles above Mc Keespoi t, to hold an inquest on the bodies of Kichard Mack, about forty years of age, and his little six year old daughter, Maggie, who Lad been run over by a freight train and killed. From the testimony it appeared that Mack and his son came from New Cnstle, Pa., about two weeks ago, and obtained employment at the brick works of (Jeorge Baird, about one mile above the scene of the accident Mack came to this citv on Wednes day to fetch home his little daughter .Maggie who was making a visit at the house of Mr. Andrew Flynn on Magec street. He started back on the evening train accompanied by his daughter, but the two got off at Mckeesport. I hey left McKeesport about half-past si.x o'clock the same evening, and when last seen alive Mack ,vas standing on the track, be tween nine cud ten o'clock. This was within two hundred yards of where the bodies were found. The remains were discovered about midnight by one of the men engaged at the salt works. A verdict of accidental death was rendered. I ton bio Unrdrr nnct Mulct lie. Jefferson vii.ee, I no., June 0. John McDermott. a saloon-keeper of this city, said to be under the influ ence of liquor most of the time, com mitted a horrible murder at C o'clock this evening. He had been in the habit f abusing his wife, who, it is said, was equally abusive of him. She left him, and had applied for a divorce. Trial was set for Wednes day next. McDermott called at his residence, where his wife was, asking her to come back and live with him which she agreed to on Monday. He then left the house and returned in ten minutes with a large navy revolver, and found Mrs. McDermott nursing her baby. He raised the weapon and deliberately fired ut her. The ball struck the baby in the fore head, passing clear througn its head and lodging in the breast of its moth er, producing probably a fatal wound. He then placed the revolver to his head and blew his own brains out. The baby died instantly, and but little hopes are entertained for the recovery of its mother.

I j Senator Stewart, of Nevado, has proposed an amendment to the Cou I stitution us follow.-: I Artk i.k IC. If any Stale shall fail to maintain a common shool sys tem, under which all persons Let w een the ages of five and eighteen years, not incapacitated for the same shall receive, free of charge, such elementa ry education as Congres;s may pre scribe the Congress shall have power to establish therein such a system, and cause the same to be maintained at the expense of such State. Thisj's one of the most important amendments that I. as ever been sul -mittcd to Congress. The constitution imposes upon Congress the guarantee to every Slate :i republican form of government. Now there can be no such form of government, either in form or in spirit, with education. We are rapidly coining to tho doc trine that ignorance is crime, and cer tainly it is a crime against the State. It is more necessary to build school houses than jails, and quite as impor tant to send children to school to pre serve the quarantine at our ports. We trust the Senator will press this amendment, or one similar to it in spirit, and that it will commend itself to the prompt nnd intelligent consid eration of Congress.

During the parade of John Kobinson's circus through the streets of this city to-day two buffaloes become frightened and got away from their keepers. They rushed into the sidewalks and knock ed down Mrs. Scxih Harold an elder ly lady, w ho was holding a babe be longing to Mrs. Shirpley in her arms. Mrs. Harold was struck upon the head by one of the buffaloes and rc ceired a terrible gash several inches in length. She also had Ler right hip broken. Tho baby received a blow upon the temple which render ed it unconscious and produced spasms, from which it is feared it will not recover. The buffaloes ran down the street, but were soon under con trol of their keeper. The excitement at the t:me wr.9 intense, and a number were crushed and bruised by the erowd. A team became frightened and ran into a carriage, in which there were two ladies and a child who were thrown out nnd dragged some distance with the wreck, but e.-:canod unhurt. Ose-tliM of tie Tom Borni C'XNF.AiTvn.i.E. Pa., June I. Our town was about one-third burned to-day. The fire commenced near the old Courtright warehouse and burned all the warehouses along the canal, the liery stable, ami all the wooden bnildiugs back of the Court right v Shriek's brick building, then across Centre street, taking all the buildings south of Centre and two west of Main street, to the next cross street, stopping at the house of .Mrs. Charles Hammond. . About forty-five buildings were burned in all, near the centre of the town, rendering about twenty fami lies homeless. The mayor of Krie was telegraphed to for "a steamer, which was promptly sent by special train, but arrived too late to assist in putting out the fire, as it was already under control. It. however, did c-ood service in putting out the burning neons ana preventing the further spreading of the fire, thus relieving our tired citizens, who were com pletely exhausted. - Great praise is due to the Mayor of K rie and thc fire department, of that cit y for their promptness in send. ing their steamer, and to Messrs. Kimball and Bates, managers of the Krie and Pitttsbnrg railroad.-for their promptness in sendinsr the sneeial train with the steamer. The loss is about" one hundred thousand dol lars.
