St. Jehn's l'ree Episcopal ami St. JelmV
A very delightful entertainment took
place at St. Jehn's Free Episco
pal church last evening, the church
being crowded with the patrons, teachers
and children of the Sunday-school. In
addition te the. decorations of the church,
-mentioned yesterday, a fine Christmas
tree 20 feet high, and filled with orna
ments, steed in the centre of the chancel.
The exercises opened with an anniversary
hymn, -which was followed by Christmas
carols by the pupils of the infant and mid
dle denartmeuts 01 inescuoej. jiiu i
The arch was composed of fifteen blocks,
each representing one of the Christian vir
tues, as Faith. Hepe, Charity, Cleanliness,
Temperance, &c, fcc. These blocks were
set in place by children designated for the
purpose, and each of the children made a
brief address, explanatory of the subject
represented by the block being then placed.
As the work went en, soles, duets, tries and
choruses were sung. Miss Alice Marshall
sang the sole ' Meek and Lowly," with
fine expression. When the keystone of the
arch, Faith, was placed, the pastor, llcv.T.
H.Barkcr made a brief address ogplanateiy
of the significance of the structure. Then
ilr. Barker was eresented with a basket
of beautiful flowers, and the children of
the school received their
each girl being given a pictty little
breakfast caster, and each boy a pecke t
knife, and each of the pupils, boys and
girls alike, a cornucopia filled with con
fections. The entertainment was greatly
relished both by adults and childicn.
Especial credit is due te Air. J. M. W.
deist, who prepared the blocks of which
the great archway was composed.
St. Jehn's Let he: an.
An entertainment equal te the above in
attractiveness was furnished te the pupils
of St. Jehn's Lutheran church. The exer
cises opened with a responsive service, ex
planatory of events attending the birth of
Jesus, and was interspersed with song and
prayer. The principal feature of the en
tertainment was a grand tableau entitled
the " Changed Uress. " Immediately fli
front of the pulpit was erected a large
frame or proscenium arch, covered with
curtains looped hack at the sides. An in
ner curtain en being raised exposed te
view a large white cress. As the curtain
rose an invisible cheius sang "Ncaicr, my
Ged te Thee," and the pupils in the body
of the church sang "In the Cress of
Christ we Glory." The cm tain then was
dropped, and, en rising again, displayed
the changed cress, clothed in beautiful
flowers. The cress was at first but dimly
seen, but as the gauzy scmi-transpaicut
screens were gradually removed fiem its
front and a bright light thrown upon it, it
fchenc forth in splendor, and at its feet lay
a beautiful lyre and basket el ilewcis.
The invisible chorus again tang ''Nearer
My Ged te Thee," and at the same
time a brilliant crown, sparkling with
gems, descended and rested just above
the head of the cress ami a white
dove followed, resting just above the
crown. 1 he cllt'ct was beautiful and im
pressive and as the invisible cheius
ended the school childicn lepcated "In
the Cress el Christ we Glory." The tableau
remained exposed during the evening.
Recitations, addresses, music and reports
followed. Ethel IVikins a very biilit
little miss lecilcd a "Bird song,"' which
was much admired, as was also a remon
strance by Master Perkins, against the
iconoclasts who attempt te disprove the
story of Win. Tell, Washington's " little
hatchet," and ether traditions cherished
by the young folks. The pastor IIcv. Sy.'
vauius Stall I, and the ex-pastor 15cv. J..W.
Ilufferd made pertinent addresses ; a quar
tet sang "Reck of Age's " with line ellV-cl,
and then the distribution of gifts te the
children took place. These consisted el
very pretty Christmas cards.

which was arranged by Dr. II. 1). Knight,
assisted by Mr. T. 1'erkins and S. 1J. llcrr,

J. W. Stanford's New Yerk Humpty
Damply and Spanish Students combina
tion was the high-sounding name under
which saile I a company which held forth
in ihe opera house last evening. The
name, as we expected, was about the only
thing high except, perhaps, the kicking of
one of the lady members of the troupe
about the company. The Spanish Students
were only tin the bills, the Humpty Dump
ty was the poorest ever seen in the bor
ough and the performance generally a
tiz.le. The ledceming feature if indeed we
may call it t hat, was the acrobatic perform

gal lei y audience was immense and of
ceuisj weie delighted.

THAT 8500 CHALLENGE.
Mr McKUUps Somewhat Varies the Terms te
Salt the Challenger.
In an article published ten days age, it will
be remembered that I gave Mr. I. J. Steinhau
ser threa days te pat up Ids ' reward." I also
sent lilm a written notice te meet me en the
third day at Mr. Fulton's law office, te prepare
the necessary papcra : but, a? Mr. S. remarked
te a neighbor, lie liad ina'le a mistake In offer
ing the reward of $300 ; he also tailed te appear
en the day appointed. In a second article el
his he wants te make it appear that Mr. Car
penter is the raauutacturer of all my actions.
Xew, Mr. Carpenter is one of the most exten
sive action makers in the United States but he
does net make my keys, reed?, tube-beard,
sounding beards, steps, connections, coup
lers, vex humanas, tremolo-, guides, springs,
4c and for what reason ? Simply because he
can get as geed an article ready-made ler less
cost than he could keep up the machinery te
de It himself. There are te my knowledge
eighteen large manufacturer who make u bu
siness of manut icturing the various parts that
go into an organ action ; net one el these are
organ maker. Xew, I ask Mr. S. wheic all
these manufacturers ell tliiir pieducts. if net
te organ makers? There 13 net an organ
made te-day in America but lias vaiieus paits
from some one or all of these eighteen large
manufacterie-. Theic may be as many mere :
there arc some ten or liltcen ethers that con
tribute articles for ether part-, of the organ.
New, I will make Mr. -. a preposition : Tlu.t
it he show? me an organ he has in his store
te-day which he can prove (net by his wenl
nor his catalogue-, but by legal evidence)
that the lirm whose nam it bear- m.ide the
keys, reeds, tube-beards, coupler-, vex liu
luana step-, &c, or action complete, as he re
quires me te de (I will net accept et one or
two parts, but they must make all, te be put
complete in my place); if Mr.S. does this,tben I
will make the various parts and complete the
organ in my manufactory, and net ask one
cent of him, which will probably suit his
nuances better than the ?.'.OJ.
What gore? Mr. S. is that r.eiiic time age he
boasted he was going te make un organ, and
wrote te Mr. Carpenter ler actions ; also te
Messrs. Dyer & Hughe? for ready-made casei ;
but, as his article clearly proves, he could net
get anything irem Mr. Carpenter. He thinks
new te lake his jealeu-y out et mc. It Iris al
ways been the case and .ih a s will be, when a
man has a superior ait iele te sell, his competi

UK. WM. L. ELDER.
One of the Seng of 'rety Thunder.
A correspondent of the Philadelphia
JJceniny JS'eic3 has te say of the subject of
this sketch : lie was born in Somerset
ceuuty, and is well known te Peunsylva
nians. He was educated te the profession
of medicine, and located in your city about
the year 1850. He then published a Free
soil paper at the northeast comer of Third
and Deck streets. When Leuis Kos
suth came te this country with his
suite, the patriot exiles of Hungary
wcre given n banquet at the Musical
Fund hall. It was a magnificent af
fair, and Hen. Geerge M. Dallas, cx-mini.-'-tcr
te Russia presided. The price of
tickets was fixed at $10, but se great was
the demand for them that some were sold
at asbighas$50 The programme was, of
course, all laid out beforehand, and the
speakers selected te respond te the several
toasts and sentiments. There was one
toast, however, that it was net intended
should be responded te, it was offensive te
Austria and Hulseman, the Austrian minis
ter at Louden.
This toast was net effcicd until the din
ner had been finished and the guests had
been well filled with wine. When it was
proposed the Hen. Geerge M. Dallas arose,
with his magnificent presence, dressed in
black, with his high white neckcleth and
long white, flowing hair, and in a distinct
and clear voice read the sentiment. With
firm and deliberate utterance and in a tone
of thunder lie asked, " Who dare respond
te this?" Ne sooner was the question
asked than there arese from near the cen
tre of the hall a gentleman, in stature
about the make of your Daniei
f. Fk.v. clean shaven and with
iieu-giay hair, who deliberately mount
ed the main table (there were six
tables, each running the entire length of
the hall) and addressed the chair. Your
correspondent will never for get that night
or that dramatic sccne. There steed what
proved te be an orator, with an extended
hand pointing toward the president, a man
straight as an arrow and a counfenance all
afire with determination. The vast audi
ence for a time looked en with amazement
ana awe. lie was net known te ene in a
hundred present, but he steed like a
statue, without moving a muscle of his face.
Profound silence prevailed when he com
menced. Said he, " Mr. President, I dare
te respond. I will draw the sword of
Washington and cress the Danube." In
less than a moment the speaker had the
whole audience with him. AH weie elec
trified and worked tip te the highest: en
thusiasm, and never was there a dinner
where there was r.nnli n pniOilnn r i,ini
and glasses in the same space of time. As
the speaker proceeded the hall rang with
cheers, the clapping of hands and the
stamping of feet. When the orator de
scended from the table theie was scarcely
te be found a whole glass or pl.ite iu the
That great speech was made by a
"frosty son of thunder." Dr. William L.
Elder. At its close. Kossuth arose and
said it was the greatest osatien he had
ever listened te and that the mau who had
delivered it was the greatest of orators. It
may be found published in some of the
standard school books as a masterpiece of
oratory. Its author has been for some
time employed iu the treasury depaitment
where he was lirst appointed by Hen.
