TUB HOLIDAY TRADE.-AS a general rule,
the mest extensive and liberal buyers of holiday
goods do not put off their purchases until the
?tocks have become low and the crowd so great
that they are unable to make satisfactory selec?
tions. Indeed, as we happen to know, some of
TUC most desirable customers in that branch of
.trade are already on 4;he lookout for souvenirs
of the coming season. Dealers who propose to
engage In it-and which of them does not ?
sttoold therefore announce their attractions with?
out delay, IX they w?h to reap an early harvest.
We need hardly add, what they already know,
that the advertising columns or THS KBWS, al?
ways a reflex of the business of the city, are con
oulted now more than ever by those desiring bar?
gains in any branch of trade.

most thrillingly exciting and Interesting ro?
mances which we have ever read; and the lovers

cided upon in a caucus meeting. Some of these
1 Xl tl V Il/YlVijJUiO X V?,
had been scratched ott* and the name or George
W. Clark substituted Tor that or H. B. Olney, in
the Commissioners or the Orphanhouse. The
latter received six votes, and considerable dls
satlsractlon was expressed by Alderman Voigt,
Cunningham and others, at the erasure ot his
name, as the matter had been decided upon in
In the Commissioners or Markets, thc name ot
David Barrow was substituted Tor that or R. S.
Bruns, the latter receiving 2 votes; Coogan, 1;
Addison, l, and T. J. Mackey, L
The Commissioners or the Almshouse were elect?
ed In accordance with the printed slip, the board
being thc same a3 last year, with the exception
or J. F. Greene and Richard Holloway, who took
the place or E. W. M. and T. J. Mackey.
Alderman Voigt said that in the list or supervi?
sors or the High School, Alderman Collins1 name
was substituted ror that or T. J. Mackey, but that
or Alderman L. F. Wall was not on the list agreed
upon in caucus, and he thought, Dom the action
or Couicll, that caucus meetings were a farce,
and that the inconsistency or Council surprised
Alderman E. P. Wall said that that was not the
offence; it was because a colored man was on the
board. The gentlemen would sit m Council with
colored men; ir they decline to sit as supervisors,
let them resign.
Alderman Orcene thanked Council ror electing
him a member or the Board or Supervisors or the
High School, but begged leave to resign and sub?
stitute the name or Hon. George S. Bryan.
Alderman Voigt said that ho was accused or
what was not true, and those who knew him were
aware that he had no prejudices in regard to
color. He sat with colored men to the right and
left in Council, and wonld sit at the same boards
with them elsewhere.
Alderman Cunningham said that he was dis?
pleased because the solemn pledges given in cau?
cus were violated; that Mr. Olney's name had
been erased and Mr. Clark's substituted. The
one was a Democrat the other a Republican, but
that should have cansed no change. He was will?
ing to vote for any one, white or colored, whose
name was agreed upon at a caacus meeting.
Alderman E. P. Wall said the tickets were all
laid on the desks, and the Aldermen mnst have
seen thc name or R. P. Wall, and could have
erased it and substituted that or G. S. Bryan, if
so disposed, and tons avoided the discussion.
Alderman Greene said that at the caucus meet?
ing he had expressed his unwillingness to accept
the nomination, and he again tendered his resig?
nation. He resented the Insinuations ot Alder?
man Wall as unjust, particularly as regarding
himself. He had sat with colored men at the
same board, and would do BO again.
The resignation being accepted, the election
was held, and Judge Bryan received twelve votes
and L. F. Wall one.
A communication from the county auditor ask?
ing for the appointment of a board of equaliza?
tion was read and referred to the Mayor for ac?
Tlie Mayor appointed Aldermen Geddings, Pot?
ter and Cunningham the special committee to
consider the report or Alderman Barrow, on the
west end or Broad street.
On motion Council then adjourned.
ACADEMY OF MCSIC- Tho disagreeable
weather last evening prevented the appearance
or the usual proportion or ladies in the audience
at the Academy; but those who were present
were amply repaid for having ventured out on so
raw and damp a night. "Checkmate," the open?
ing piece, written by Andrew Halliday, well
known xs a contributor to thc London Punch,
has a lively and well-defined plot, and abounds in
keen dialogue and droll situations. Miss Blanche
Chapman, in the leading part, achieved a decided
triumph. Whatever her success In burlesque, her
strongest point, we think, ls in comedy. The per?
fect naturalness and qnict lady-like manner In
which she conducts the dialogue or the play, was
rcrrcshlng to ears accustomed to the usual exag?
gerated tone and boisterous demeanor or the
stage. Cinderella passed off as gally and as
smoothly as when first performed, Miss Ella sus?
taining the part ol the rollicking Dandini in spirit?
ed and graceful style.
For to-night wc are to have "Black Eyed Sus?
an, " with the three-act comedy of "Everybody's
Friend,"' written by Sterling Coyne, ot London.
It has had the run or a year in London, with
Mr. S. Clarke (brother-in-law to Edwin Booth)
as Major Wellington de Boots, a swaggering mili?
tary bully, with thc aspect or a lion and thc pluck
or a monse. Felix Feather!)- is "Everybody's
Friend,"constantly, in his honest desire to serve
others, Involving hlmscir in trouble, like Gold?
smith's "Good-natured Man." Thc comedy ls foll
or very laughable incidents, and has recently
been revived in New York, with much success.
Mr. Bishop appears as the doughty Major on this
