rcrlmpg i should not be very far out in my calcula
tions If I should say that not more than one in ten
thousand of those who travel np and down Broad,
way realize the fact that that thoroughfare la being
undermined and tunnolled In the vicinity of Warren
street Excavations are being made there under the
direction of the Pneumatic-Despatch Company,
whoso motto neems to consist In the two words
"keep mum." Mum the company has kept in spite
of the repeated attempts of reporters to Interview it
against Its will. Nevertheless, since the work In
which they are engaged Is In some sense a public
work, and since It Is fair to presume that the public
has some natural concern for its own safety, it Is
conceivable that that public should speculate as to
the possibility of Broadway and Warren street, at
their Intersections, some day or other caving
in. Walking along and crossing Broadway are dan
gerous enough as It is, without any collateral Jeop
ardy being thrown in. To be sure, "those" Hansom
cabs have not yet made the assurance of being run
over doubly sure, but the old jumble of horses, hnml
carts, stages, cabs, bnck-pllcs, drays, furniture
wagons and what not is sufilclently perilous. To
return to the Pnuematic Despatch Company, how
ever, It has long been mysteriously at work under
Broadway, having for the base of its operations the
basement of Devlin A Co.'s store, on Warren street.
The earth dug out is disposed of In the most cautious
manner, as though the workmen were committing
felony. No one but the officers of the company and
the workmen employed there are permitted to enter
that dirt-sanctum. Rumor snys that the excava
tions have already penetrated as far as the founda
tions of the Astor House, and the company says
that la,when the company can be brought to say uny
thlng whatsoever that It has only Just begun to ex
cavate a small tunnel, of size Just sufllclent to admit
the passage of a diminutive freight car. What is the
truth of the matter I should like to know. Some of
these days, when the blockade between the Astor
House and the new Post OHlce grounds is a little
worse than usual, arc we going to have an earthquake-like
rent Just In that spot, and a precipitation
of people and vehicles Into the chasm beneath,
among bursting gas-pipes and water-pipes? I hope
JMIng Tackaberry Trickled.
Among the questions started by some of the In
credulous visitors at Miss Tackabcrry's seances at
Irving Hall is, whether Miss Tackaberry Is a mascu
line woman or a feminine, boy. A portion of these
questioners incline to a belief In the medium's mas
culinity, and one strong-minded feminine corres
pondent of a certain newspaper oilers to hand him
one hundred dollars, on condition that he will
allow her to demonstrate this question of sex.
If Mr. Tackaberry accepts, that tlOO will have been
more easily made than the. proceeds of any seances
The ladies comprising this Sorosis have just come
from their monthly victuals at Dclmonluo's. It has
been some time, however, since much has been pub
llcly said about them. Perhaps some of you have
forgotten its objects. Let me recapitulate them, as
well as my memory of the solferino-prlnted circulars
will permit. It Is intended to promote agreeable
and useful relation'! among women of literary and
artistic tastes ; to be entirely Independent of section
alism or partisanship; to recognize women of
' thought, taste, intelligence, culture, and humanity
everywhere, when those qualities have found an ex
pression in outward life and work ; to establish an
order among women that shall render them helpful
to each other, and remove in some degree barriers
which custom ami etiquette place In the way of
friendly Intercourse and united action; to airord
women an opportunity for the discussion of such
facts and principles as promise to exert an Influ
ence on the welfare of women and of society ; and
to seek, as members, representative women In lite
rature, art, and philanthropy. At present the Sorosls
is without a President. Its Vice-Presidents are
Fanny Barron, Fanny Fern, Mary Owen, Mary C.
Greeley, Jennie June, and Emily Faithful. The ini
tiation fee Is live dollars, and the members meet
once a month for business, lunch, and social conver
sation, every member bearing a proportion of the
expense incurred. These literary lunches are sub
stantial and palatable without being luxurious tea,
toast, cold mutton, cold chicken, stewed tripe,
coffee, Ice-cream, and English cheese forming the
principal dainties. The individual expenses do not
come to more than one dollar per meeting.

This elegant society celebrated their annual ball
last night at Thomas' Garden. It was an exceedingly
undressed affair. The fantastic costumes resembled
the burlesque inventions of a Clodoche troupe, and
the can-can was danced In a broader style than was
ever seen upon the boards of the French Theatre,
the Grand Opera House, or the Fifth Avenue. The
atmosphere was perfumed with bad gin and cabbage
leaf cigars, Did you ever see a ball-room simulated
upon the stage of the Old BoweryT Do you remem
ber the frowzy costumes, the tinselled trains from
whose tatters dust rise la clouds as the women
swept along? Such was the scene, upon an lnden
nitely extended scale, at the ball of the Frog-Town
"Lights and Shadows of London."
Mr. Tayleure has at length produoed the play of
London, said to be the joint production of Messrs.
Clarke and Robinson. The scenery Is very fine, In
deed, too fine for truthfulness, for all the localities
look as though they were bran new. The play has
literary merit, but deserves to be classed with
such picturesque sensations as After Dark, the
Streets of Xeu York, Under the Gaslight, etc.

In their declaration touching the "selection of Israel
as a religious people," they would have trembled at
the mere hartorlng of the Idea which that section
embodies. But imbued, on the contrary, with
notions antagonistic to that belief, bent upon re
moving every trnco of the ancient covenant, they
did not scruple to proclaim the rite of circumcision a
useless Institution. True, they feared public opinion
among their brethren, and therefore disguised their
thought; but not so that It can be easily fathomed.

empty avowal of certain heterodox views.

We Live in Three Climates. In this country wo
have, at different seasons of the year, the temperature of
three climates. Our springs and autumns have a softness
and mildness that belong only to the temperate zonos:
our midsummers aro torrid, and our midwinters almost
arctic in their frigidity. Those changes, Involving- a varia-
ion of from ninety to one hundred degrees of Fahrenheit
during the year, are, upen the whole, conductive to health
and long life, but tbey tend to entail upon us some dis
tressing complaints which can only be escaped by the
exercise of due care and the use of f. proper antidote
when the system is predisposed to contract them. The
chief and most annoying of these disorders is dyspepsia,
once supposed to be incurable, but which, since the intro
duction of Hohtetteu'm Stomac h Bitters, now about
twenty years ago, has proved to be a perfectly manageable
In the spring and fall, but more especially in the fall, the
symptoms of dyspepsia are generally aggravated. The
profuse expenditure of the animal fluids under the burn
ing sun of summer is apt to leave the stomach weak and
indoltnt, and incompetent to the task of perfeot diges
tion. It requires a tonio which will rouse it from its
lethargy, and brace and invigorate without irritating or
inflaming it. This tonio has been provided in the won
derful vegetable preparation which has replaced, in a great
measure, all the old palliatives formerly prescribed by
physicians, under the fake idea that the disorder could
not be radically cured. The success of Hosietteb's
Bittejis in all the varieties of dyspepsia, acute or chronic,
has effectually exploded this fallacy, and it is now recom
mended as a spocinc for indigestion by some of the most
eminent members of the medical profession.
