Narrow Escape.?On Tuesday morning two
sons of Mr. W. B. Brady, of Short Creek, were*
hitchiBg up their father's carriage to come to
this city. Unobserved, two' of the younger
children, one two and the other three years ol
nge, crept into the carriage to take a ride, when
the horses became frightened and ran away
along the side of a little hill.' The carriage
came so near upsetting once as to throw one of
the children out, but recovered its equilibrium,
and the horses proceeded at a fearful rate to
wards the edge of a high precipice, when they
turned abruptly about and ran in another and
safer direction. The animals were finally stop
ped without any material injury being done,
though the suspense of those who witnessed
Hie scene must have been terrible in the ex
treme. The child that was thrown out of the
carriage rolled to the foot of the hill, and has
since complained some, though it is not sup
posed to have been seriously injured. Had the
horses not been familiar with the ground they
would doubtless have dashed over the precipiec,
the very edge ot wiiicu n.cj touched and turned
from with increased fear.
A Wife Whipper JFlees from the Wrath? to
Come.?Patrick Golden was released from Jail
on Tuesday, where he has been confined during
the past thirty days, for beating his wife. He
went home pretty well bleached and somewhat
saddened in spirit and was warmly welcomed by
liy his wife, who hoped for future peace and
tranquility. But Patrick could not withstand
the temptation to indulge in a little drink after
his thirty days abstinence. The drink drove
away all his good resolutions and he fell to beat,
ing his wife for the commission of some real or
imnwginary offence. He was taken before Aid.
McCourtney and re-committed to jail for. trial.
This morning he was brought down and seated
in the office. The officer went after his wife
and other witnesses and the Squire's attention
was called away for a moment Patrick took
advantage of the favorable turn of affairs and
broke out of the backdoor "like a skeercd dog."
The dark and disagreeable ccll and the fine open
air compared in Patrick's mind, as he ran, accele
rated his locomotion to a degree not attainable
by those who had nothing to throw dirt for but
a poor Irishman and the prospest of a little fun,
and so he escaped for a while.
Thorough Bred. Sheep.?We yesterday saw at |
the Depot of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad,
fifty head of Fsench Merino Sheep, which were |
being shipped to the Valley of Virginia by Mr.
W. P. Brady, of Short Creek, Brooke county.
They were the finest lot of sheep ever driven
through this city. It has now been about eight
years since Mr. P. commenced importing sheep
from France, and his success has been beyond
his most sanguine anticipations. The ewes in
the lot we saw yesterday weigh about 150
pounds. Mr. Brady clipped a fleece of 81J lbs.
from a sheep raised by himself, which was re
garded, at the time, as the largest lleeco ever
clipped in America. Those who desire to im
prove their stock should avail themselves of Mr.
Brady's ample experience, care and expense to
Suiciile.?On l\st Tuesday morning, about
two o'clock Charles Grim, living near Round
Bottom, below this city committed suicide by
blowing his brains out with a rifle. lie got
out of bed and passed into another room of the
house, where he took a ritie and fastening a
string with one end to the trigger and the other
to his foot, placed the muzzlb of the gun to his
forehead and fired it off. Ho had been disor
dered in his mind for two or three weeks.
Mr. Grim leaves a wife and six children. He|
was a very respectable man.
Canting Melon* on the Waters.?A man with
a wagon load of water melons attempted to ford
the river yesterday and not being acquainted
with the stream, drove into a hole beyond the
depth of the wagon. The water melons, canta
leups, nutmegs, etc., floated to the surface, and
by the time, the horses wore driven safely to the
opposite shore the fruit had been carried so far
away with Uie current? that its recovery cost
about as much as it would come to at ordinary
prices. The water is quite low to be sure, but
the bridge company still gets fifteen cents from
the more discreet persons.

To-morrow John Burns, the murderer, will
expiate the awful crime of murder upon the
? gallows. We have heard prayers and voices in
singing issuing from his cell at times during
yesterday and the night previous. We learn
from one of the ministers who has been praying
and advising with the unfortunate man, that he
is not altogether remorseless, but that occa
sionally his heart seems to be softening, and
his whole manner is indicative of deep penitence.
Grand Opening Soiree.?Our citizens wili be
happy to learn that Professor Miller, the great
favorite teacher of dancing, has just returned
to the city from a tour to the East, and has
brought with him all the latest and most fash
ionable fancy dances and quadrilles now in
voguq in New York. He will open the season
of gaieties with a Grand Select Assembly on
Thursday evening, Sept. 16th, at the Washing
ton Ilall, and commence his schools on Friday
and Saturday after the soiree.
Sudden Death.?We learn that Mr. Panie(
Underwood, of Tyler county, was killed by the
falling of a tree, on the ISth insfc The tree
struck him on the right side of the head, mash
ing the skull. The accident occurred about 8
o'clock in the afternoon, and he was not found
tijl nine in the evening. He was then insensi
ble, and never spoke afterwards. He leaves a
wife and one child.
Religious Notice.?Rev. Joseph R. Wilson,
D. D., of Augusta, Georga, will preach to-night
(Thursday) in the 4th Street'Methodist Church.
T!\e Ilempjiejd jiuilrood is now.a fixed fact.

Accident.?Yesterday forenoon a little child
named Bane was run over, by a dray on Clay
street and quite seriously injured. The child
had a leg and and arm broken. It is about four
years of age.
Nomination.?Mr. Sprigg, of Noble county,
was nominated for Congress in the Belmont
District, by the Democratic Convention which
assembled at Barnesville on Tuesday.
City Council.?A called meeting of the City
Council was held last evening. The Mayor
stated that the meeting had been called for a
Mr. Jacob arose and explained the object of
the meeting. He stated that it was well known
that the city was quite largely indebted to .the
Messrs. Miller for Castings, &c., which was a
meritorious debt. That suit had been brought
by bondholders of the Marietta and Cincinnati
railroad, also bv some of those holding bonds of
the Hempfield "and Cleveland & Pittsburg rail
roads. As the U.S. district Court would sit
here on Monday next it was possible that the I
suit would be brought and that judgement be
decided against the property of the city now
unincumbered. ? .
Mr. Jacob went on to explainthe action which
it was deemed proper and necessary for the city
now to take. The city had. the same right to
prefer (for bona fide purposes) as individuals
had, and it was, therefore, the part of common
justice and policy for. her to prefer a meritorious
debt like this, due to one of her own citizens,
as against these one sided obligations in the in
curring of which tho city had been so much
disadvantaged. On motion of Mr. Jacob it was
ordered that the Mayor be empowered to exe
cute a deed of trust to Messrs. R. & W, Miller.
Resignation of Dr. Logan as a member ot the
Sanitary Committee from the 1st Ward, was
read and received.
Report of Committee on Petitions and remon
strances was read and received. This report
recommended a reduction in the license of A.
Wisegaber, from $125 00 to $100 00. Also
recommending a license to ihos. Corcoran for
$30. Both these recommendations were reject
ed by Council. License was ordered to be grant
ed to Corcoran on the payment of $00. Petition
of L. Money, to keep a 2d .class Coffee Ilouse,
was granted. Petition of Geo. W. Smith for
permission to run a pipe across 4th street, con
necting tho two branches of his private gas
works, was read and granted; so far as the city
may have power. Mr. Smith assuming all lia
bilities. Petition of F. Rothacker, referred to

Bryson, for release of her husband from jail j
On motion of Mr. Pannell, the City Sergeant was
authorized to appoint an extra police force
(such as may be required, subject to the appro
val of the Mayor) on Friday next.
Mr. Pannell suggested the expediency of
renting out the old City Hall for vegetable
market stills. Council adjourned.
The Union House.?Many of our citizens will
probably visit Wheeling during the Fair, and
would, no doubt, like to have a good place to
stop at. To such we would recommend the
Union House, situated on Main Street, near tho
stone bridge. The Union is unassuming, but is
nevertheless a good hotel. The tables arc well
filled, and the beds in a fine condition.. Add to
these the accommodating disposition of Mr.
Packer, the proprietor, and last but not least,
the cheapness of the establishment, a set of at
tractions hard to resist.?Barnesville Jntolh'jen

TnE RESTORATIVE OP PROP. O. J. WOOD, FOR RE
storing hair perfectly and permanently, has never yet I
had a rival. Volume after volume might he given from all
parts of the world, and from the most intelligent, to prove I
that it is a -perfect RthtoratVoe; but read the circular and
you cannot doubt; read also the following:
1=?- Tub Hair ?People have for centuries been afflicted
with bald heuds, and the only remedy, heretofore known,
has been those abominable wigs. By a recent discovery of
Professor Wood these articles are being fast dispensed with,
but a great many persons still patrouise them, because they
have been so often imposed upon by Hair Tonics of differ
ent kinds. To all such persons we earnestly make the re
quest, that they will try once again, for in Wood's Restora
tive there is no tuch thing as fail. We know of a lady who
was bald, who used the article a short time, and her head is
now covered completely with the tiniest and most beautiful
curls imaginable. We know of numerous.cases where hair
was rapidly falling out, which It restored in greater perfec
tion than it ever had been before.
It is also without doubt one of the best articles for keep
ing the hair in good condition, making it soft and glossy,
removing dandruff, and has proved itself the greatest ene
my to all the ills that hair Is heir to.
It is the duty of every one to improve their personal ap
pearance, though some mav differ iu regard to the ways of :
| doing it; but every one will admit that a beautiful head of
hair, either In man or woman, Is an object much to be de
sired, and there are no means that should be left untried
to obtain such a consideration.?[ Woman's Advocate,
C08H0CT05, Ohio, Nov. 17,1S5G.
O. J. WOOD 4 CO.?Gents: As I have been engaged in
selling your Hair Restorative the last season for one of
your local agents (R. M. llacklnson,) and having experi
enced thu buncilclal effects or it myself, I would like to ob
tain an agency for the State of Ohio or some State In the
West, should you wish to make such au arrangement, as I
am convinced there is nothing equal to it i)u the United
States, for restoring the hair. I have been engaged In the
Drug business for several years, and have sold various
preparations for the hair, but have found nothing that re
stores the secretive organs or invigorates the scalp as well
as youw, being fully convinced that your restorative is
what you represent it to be, I would like to engage In the
sale of it. for I am satisfied it must sell.
Yours truly, S. T. STOCKMAN.

| PROF. O.J. WOOD A Co.?GenU: Having realised the
good effects of your Hair Restorative, I wish to state, that
finding my h*?Ir growing thin, as well as gray, I was in
duced, from what I read and heared, to try the article pre
pared by you, to promote its growth and change its color
as it was in youth, both of which it has effected completely.'
In the operation 1 have used nearly three bottles.

commenced. The streets were thronged. The !
processions formed and passed through the
principal streets. At noon the impressive ex

with prayer by Rev. Dr. Nuvin. Letters were
read from Pres. Buchanan, C W Field, and others.
Hon. Win. D. Ivelley followed in si powerful
oration. During the exercises the American and
British flags were brought forth 011 the platform
and conjoined with cable. This ceremony was
