Tb** unauthoi(zed announcement that Thomas A.
Edison'seleetric li_ht* would be publicly exhibited
at Menlo Park, N. J., drew scores of persons
lo Hint place last evening. Ihe crowd
that for wv ri al hours thronged tbe labora
tory Bud the several ? orkshops, nnd plie<]
the Htti'iii'itnt* villi rinmnerablo questions' wiri
composed cl.icttj* of men w io W818 u;tcr"dcd ***?

Bler, ... penii-nrof"*tai< mal scientilic men who wera
fairl., running over wit ii more or less useful knowl
edge,and curious spec! Iton wlio seemed to lie anxious
to acquaint themselves wit- the mysteries of the
new illuminator. Marv ladies were nrcsent. anti
several nhl-la'shioiied wasons brought loads of funn?
er* nnd their families from the neighboring count) y
towna. Ann.nc the -Witta] hundred that were
piesent were ex-Kecrctarv Robeson, General Carse,
Hartley C.mu.li.-ll, the. ant hoi- of " Fairfax,"
J. W. Dyer, Augustus Howitt ll and Daniel D. I*.
Farson of I'liiliitlelphin: H. J. Aniold and Edward
Randolph of Macon, (ieorgio, anti NV. c. Mi ickier
of Peoria. Illinois. The moat of the visitors who
rugisteicd their names were from different patts ot
the country, from Nen-Rrunswick to Illinois.
Comparatively few were from New-York.
Until ft p. m. the weather was so disagreeable
that all remained within the shops examining the
lights and tho machines hy which Um various por?
tions were mnde. The new-comers always gathered
around the electric street lamps, anti their exprt-s
sioos of astonishment vv. t loud ami f rennet]t. The
lights were steady and tmwerful, and did not throw
the Hharply-ileiiiieil shadows tbat are seen from gas
lainps.
Among those who were interested in examining
the lights in the building wss a cloth manufacturer
of Pennsylvania, who bad come Itt see what arrange?
ments he could make for supplying his
mill with several hundreds of these burners.
He said that at present tbere was grear
danger that the inflammable material would
take fire from lighting tho gas jets. Ibis
danger he wanted to avoid. There were others, too,
who wcro visiting Mr. Edison" on similar
errands. Throughout the evening the work?
men were kept busy explaining thc several
elements that go to make up the electric light sys?
tem to curious crowds of spectators. Mr. Edison
himself was continually surrounded hy n dozen or
fifteen people, two or three of whom were generally
questioning him at oner*.
To a Triucnk reporter Mr. Ellison said thst the
announcement that he intended to give a public ex?
hibition of his lights at Menlo Park last evening
was mian!hornett, '1 here were between fifty and
sixty lights burning then. He should keep increas?
ing this niiiuiiei daily, ns rapidly as was
practicable, and in fivo weeks he boped that lie
wonld have SOO lights buming. Ile disclaimed any
intention of giving any formal exhibition. Ho
should increase the number of the lights us fast aa
he could increase- his facilities for generating the
electricity.
Last evening four privato bou-.es, those tif Mr.
Ellison, Chailes Batchelor, Mrs. Jot.lau, and P. H.
Upton ,were illuminated by the new light, and be
side tbe lights in Ihe workshops there were aliout
fifteen attest lamps burning. The most of the vis?
itors returned to New-York on the ?i i>. ta, train, OT
contiuued on their way to Philadelphia.
Tuc new lamp vv'iieli brou*ht together the crowd
of visitors last uiiiht is an entirely different affair
from thc oitl on.* with which Mr. Edison has
been experimenting for a year. It consists of
a slender pencil of caroon, in.nie lucan
deaeent in a varmint ni a small glass
globe. The e.irb'.m is in Ihe lot in ol a
liorveahoe ami is made ot paper rttrboniged by
being subjected to intense heat in a retort. The
light ot ono iras jet is obtained fruin each lamp. Mr.
Ellison believes it to be a satisfactory lain]*, and
claims to have now attained the success for which
he ha.i so KNlg been striving.
