New York Tribune special : There was great ex?
citement, but no panic, over the Russian news In
the stock exchange and elsewhere. Some such
Russian step has been so long expected that the
public was partly prepared for it. lt is the form
and the peremptoriness or Russia's declaration
which have created surprise, rather than the de?
mand itself! There ia nothing yet like talk about
war, bot the English Cabinet ls in no mood to be
deterred by the prospect of a collision, in which,
however, lt doc? not" believe. There Is nobody
who says that Englan d will not in any case go to
war. Both here and perhaps still more in conti?
nental cabinets a sense of the Impossibility of per?
mitting open dictation by Russia ls uppermost.
The following correspondence has passed :
?ARL QBANYILLE TO Silt A. BITCH ANAN, BRITISH
AMBASSADOR TO RUSSIA.
FOKEION OFFICE, November lo.
Sir-Baron Brunow made to me yesterday a
communication respectiug the convention be?
tween the Emperor of Russia and the Su tan,
limiting their naval forces lu the Black Sea, sign?
ed at Paris, on the so;h March, 1S56, to which you
allude in your telegram of yesterday afternoon.
Da my dispatch of yesterday I gave you an ac?
count of what passed between us. and I now
Sropose to o serve upon Prince Gortschakofl's
lspatcbes of the 10th and 20th ult., communica?
ted to me by the Russian Ambassador on that oc?
casion. Prince Gortschakotf declared, on the part
of his Imperial Majesty, that the treaty of 1856
had been Infringed, upon lu various respects to
the prejudice "OYnSssla;' and more especially in
the case of the principalities, against the explicit
protest of his representative, and that, in conse?
quence of these infractions, Russia ls entitled to
renounce those stipulations of the treaty whlcn
directly touch her interests.
lt is then announced that she will no longer be
bound by treaties which restrict her right of sov?
ereignty In the Black Sea. We have here tbe al?
legation that certain facts have occurred which,
In the judgment of Russia, are at variance with
certain stipulations or the treaty, and the as?
sumption made that Russia, on the strength of
her own Judgment as to the character of these
facts, is entitled to release herself from other stip?
ulations of that instrument. This assumption ls
limited in its practical application to some of the
provMous of the treaty but the assumption of
the right to renounce any one of Its terms In?
volves an assumption or a right to renounce the
This statement is wholly independent ot the
reasonableness or unreasonableness, on. its own
merits, or the desire or Russia to be released from
the observation or the stipulations of the treaty of
1856 respeotlug the Black Sea. for the question ls.
"lu whose hands lies the power of releasing one
or more of the parties from all or any of these
lt Has always been held that that right belongs
only|to the governments who have been purtles to
the original instrument.
The dispatches of Prince Gortschakon* appear to
asiume that any one or the powers who have
signed au engagement may allege that occur?
rences have tafceu place which, in Its opinion, are
at variance with the provisions of a tieaty, and
although this view is not shared nor admitted bv
thc cosignatory powers, We may found upon tliat
allegation nota request to these governments for
a consideration of the case, but an announce?
ment to them that it has emancipated Itself, or
holds Itself emancipated from anv stipulations of
a treaty which lt thinks flt to disapprove. Yet lt
ls-qulte evident that the erfect of such doctrine,
or-of any proceeding which, with or without
such avowal, is founded upon ir, ls to bring the
entire authority and etneacy of treaties under
the discretionary control of any one of the
powers who muy have signed, the result or
which would be the entire destruction of trea?
ties In their essence; for whereas their whole ob
lect ls to bind powers to one another, and for this
purpose each one of the powers surrenders a por?
tion of Its free agency, by the doctrine and pro?
ceedings now in question, one^of the parties, In Its
special and individual capacity, brings back the
entire subject Into ita owu control, aud remains
bound only to Itself. Accordingly Prince Gorts
ohakoff hds announced in those dispatches the
Intention of Russia to continue to nhserve certain
of the provisions of the treaty. However satis?
factory thia may be In itself, lt ls obviously an ex
pression of free will or that power, which lt might
at any time alter or withdraw, and lu this It ls
open to the same objections as the other portions
of the communication, because lt Implies the right
or Russia to annul the treaty on the ground of
allegations of which she constitutes herself the
only Judge. ?
The question therefore arises not whether any
desire expressed by Russia ought to be carefully
examined in a friendly sprit by the cosignatory
powers, boc whether they are to accept from her
the anuouneement that by her own act, without
any consent from them, she has released herself
from the solemn covenant.
I oeed scarcely say her Majesry's Government
hav?jecelved this communication wi'li deep re?
gret, because lt opens a discussion which might
unsettle the cordial uuderstaudiog it has been
their earnest endeavor to maintain with the Rus?
sian Empire; and for the above mentioned rea?
sons lt ls Impossible for her Majesty's Government
to give any sanction on their part to the course
announced by Prince Gortscliakoff.
If, Instead of such declaration, the Russian Gov?
ernment had addressed her Majesty's Govern?
ment and the other powers who are parties to the
treaty of 1858, and had proposed for considera?
tion with them whether anything has occurred
which could be held tc amouut to an Infraction of
the treaty, or where thsre ls anything in the
terms which, from altered circumstances, presses
with undue severity upon Russia; or which, lu the
course of events, had become unnecessary for the
due protection of Turkey, her Majesty's Govern
ment would not have refused to examine the
question in concert with >he conslgnaturesto the
treaty.. Whatever might have been the result of
such communication, a risk of future complica?
tions ana very dangerous precedent as to the
validity of International obligations wonld have
been avoided. I am, Ac, GBANVILLE.

[Correspondence of the New York Times.]
BRUSSELS, Monday, October 31.
I have just returned here from a run of
several weeks through Germany, during which I
had Interviews with several distinguished person?
ages, among others the Queen of Prussia and the
captive or Wilhelmshohe. My account of my visit
to the former I Include in another letter, as all-that
relates to the ex-Emperor and the war naturauy
claims a priority:
Having the advantage of being personally ac?
quainted with his Majesty, I had no difnculiy in
obtaining admission to hU presence. He received
mt with great cordiality, aud on my expressing
my grail tl cat lon at seeing him looking so well,
despite the rumors that had been circulated of
his failing health, he laughed, and said that so far
were they from being true, that he had not been
a day Ul since he had left Paris, the constant ex?
posure to the open air and dally exercise on horse?
back having produced a marked and permanent
improvement in his heulih. As continuation or
this 1 may add that his Majesty walked with me
ror n?arlv two hours, through the grounds of the
chateau, "which are quite hilly, and tn many parts
broken. In addition co i he extensive area of these
grounds, he has a range or sixteen fclngllsh miles
distance from the chateau assigned him; but this
is merely nominal, a? he can pass the limits by a
simple formality whenever lt pleases him.
THE PEACE QUESTION.
In the course of the conversation wnich ensued
during this walk, 1 mentioned to thu Emperor the
varions reports which were In circulation con?
cerning his views on the peace question. Re?
garding this, his Majesty said that ne could not
permit any doubt to exist. He considered it Im?
possible for any government tocouclude a treaty
of peace with Germany on the basis of a cession
of territory and hope to maintain itself in France
A money indemnity and the razing of the fort ; es?
ses coveted by Germany should not be allowel to
stand in the way as obstacles to the conclusion of
peace, but further than this the Provisional Gov?
ernment, and in fact, no goverument could go.
The Emperor even went so far as to say that he
would prefer exile In Great Britain or the United
Slates, ou tho most limited means, to accepting
the restorai ion or his dynasty on such conditions
as those sought to be Imposed.
NAPOLEON'S PRIVATE FORTUNE.
I then alluded to the statements which had been
onbllshed by hts enemies regarding the amount
of his private fortune, and the large sums which
lt was alleged he had Invested in foreign securi?
ties. He answered me with animation, "that ls
a subject which touches me to the quick, because
whatever may have been my errors and short?
comings as a ruler, I csu truly say that I am not
open to the charge of avarice or pecuniary mter
estedness. I will state to you unreservedly the
nature and extent of my private resources, be?
cause 1 should like you to contradict all such re?
ports. All that myself, wife and son actually pos?
sess arc the former property of my motlier at Ar?
emberg, In Switzerland, and which costa more
to maintain tuan it produces; the property
left to the Prince Imperial by thc Princess
Bacchlochl, in Dalmatia, In consideration of
of the sums which I had paid for her out or my
private fortune, and which ls also unproductive;
some property in Italy, which yields a trifling
revenue, and a property In Spain, bo! un ?lng to
the Empress previous to her marriage, and which,
having been improved, also yields some rental.
Taken altogether, we possess Just sufficient to en?
able us to live In the simplest bourgeois style. As
to our having invested money lu the foreign
funds, or out or France, lt ls utterly false. Had I
availed myseir or the opportunities which pre?
sented themselves or investing money on the pur?
chase or real estate and stocks in the United
States, lt would have, perhaps, been well ror rae
and my family. I have known Instances in
which a moderate outluy in that way has been
productive of Urne ?suits from thc enormous
risc which has taken plate in the value of pro?
perty lu thc Atlantic cues.
I then laughably remarked to the Emperor that
some of the English uud ull thc French Journals
were Incredulous as to his restricted means, and
that they had poiuted io his numerous hous hold
as evidence of Us improbability. His Majesty
scorulully replied : '-Numerous household I Arc
they not then aware that the officers who form
what Is called my household arc fellow-prisoners
with me, and are supported by the Prussian Gov?
ernment? For my very servants, with two or
three exceptions, lam Indebted to the consider?
ate kindness or thc Queen. From the mn luv d'ho
tel down to thc humblest rervmnt at the chateau,
they are all selected from her Majesty's household,
and were sent, with her own plate and linen, with
j thc expressed object of rendering my stay here as '
little uncomfortable as possible. 1 have even de?
prived myself or the services or most or my old
and raltidul attendants, with a view to keep my
expenditure within my income."
I then made some allusion to thc hopc3 Pi
restoration entertained hy the partisans ol the
Empire, aud to the intrigues attributed to them
In bondon, Brussels and Jersey. Ills Majesty re?
plied to inc earnestly on this point, anil expressed
Ins regret that any of the influential men who
ha? occupied positions under thu Empire should
Involve themselves in proceedings of so unwise a
character, at a time when lt was the duty of every
Frenchman to consider only thc mes ?is of driving
thc Invader rrom tho soil of Franc. Circum?
stances alone Hiul tue will of thc French people
could oring about t he results ut which they aimed,

The Emperor expressed hlmseir lu gra'erul
terms, in regard to the kimi ness exhibited to
ward the Empress nm! lils son, by people or all
ranks In Mug and, aud evidently comorehcuded
that the industrial classes in that country fullv

THE FALL OF METZ.
On asking him how long he thought it would
take to insure the full of Metz, he appeared to be
under the Impression that lt had provisions
enough to enable lt to hold ont for a considerable
time. This comprised nearly all that trans?
pired or public Interest, lu the Interview which 1
had with his Majesty, in renard to the reported
unwholesomeness of Wilhelinshohe, he did uot
appear to have any apprehension of that kind
Lie described lt as a very agreeable residence, and
be had uo doubt thal lt c >uM be rendered warm
and comfortable during the winter.
H'.S MAJESTY'S HABITS.
As regards his Majesty's habits of life at the
chateau, a few particulars may no: be uninter?
esting. He rises regularly at 6, and after shaving
himself and dressing, goes to bis cabinet Oe tra?
vail about half-past 7. At 8 a cup of tea und a
slice of bread are brought to him, after which he
reads the berman, Freuch uud English papers,
remaining aloiie generally up to 9 o'clock, follow?
ing his old habits at the Tuileries. At 9 his pri?
vate secretary, Pietrle, arrives, and remains with
him until io. Ills Majesty then walks In the
grounds of thc chateau until ll. when he returns
to partake or a second ?ejtuner, at which he re?
mains only a quarter of au hour. Thc dishes
are so straple that lils officers make lt a subject
of complaint. The party then retire Into an
adjoining parlor, where smoking aud conversa?
tion are unrestrictedly Indulged In, lils Majesty
smoking lils favorite cigarette, out ustinllv talklug
very little. The Emperor then returns to" lils cab?
inet to occupy himself willi his correspoudcuce
or receive persons of his household on private
business. He remains there until half-past, three
or four o'clock, when be cither orives, rides or
walks out, always prefernug the latter exercise
when the weather permits. When he drives out
he most frequently uses the cal?che and hurses
sent him by tue Queen ol Prussia, tie returns in
time to dress Tor dinner, which ts usually served
ut half-past 6 o'clock, thu Emperor ?. ?lg al?
ways attired en ?ounjeoln, while the French
officers residing lu thc chateau always appear in
uuiiorm ami with their decorations. "The dluner
usually consists or a mixture or Freuch and Ger?
man dishes, bm- is ou the traolo very simple, ac?
cording io the Emperor's taste. Alter remaining
at table about half an nour, his Majesty aud his
household usually retire to a parlor, when cofl?"
and cigars are served. Alter a short time passed
in conversation the Emperor occasionally sits
down to a game of cards with some or his officers
but much more frequently plays at patience ?
game of which he is extremely loud. After an
hour passed lu this way, he generally calls mioii
one ol' his suite to read and a popular novel la
not unfrequeutly thc work selected. One evuulug
the tlrst volume of "Mousquetaires de la Reine"
had been got through, and the Emperor was
greatly disappointed tu learn that the succeeding
one could not bc fouud. "Quel dommage," hu
sahl, "comme c'est bleu ?crit. Comme uu ouv?
rage comme cela demande du talent et du pou?
voir de C'imbtnalsou." His Majesty usually re?
tires to his apartment at an early hour, aa he is
an earl? riser.
THE BALLOON POST.
[Paris Correspondence Loudon Times.]
There ls a celebrated mad-house here in
which there has been confined, fer some three
months past, a man who has lost his reason after
a severe attack of lever. His health began to im?
prove, and bis reason to return, until he vras so
far recovered last week that heasked Dr. Blanche
i for permission to write to his family. The doctor
thought a moment, andi agreed; but, he added,
"You had better write without delay, for there
1 is a balloon going to-morrow, and Byour letter ls
written at once, lt can go by that."
"By the balloon ! said the convalescent
madman, ope Din g his eyes. "Yon mean
the railway." "Ko," said the doctor, "I
mean by balloon. I forgot to tell you
that Paris ls besieged, and tbat au our te tiers
go by balloon." The Invalid gave a shriek of des?
pair, and holding Ids head on his hands, cried,
with agonized looks, "I have been mad; I have
had a fearful , dream. I thought I was cured I 1
thought I was oared I I am mad I mad I mad I
Oh, my God-mad I" "No, my friend, be tranquil;
you are not mai." "Then lt's yon; you have be?
come mad. What is the matter ? What has
troubled you ? Whence this Insanity T" And surely
no one can look upon Paris and see aU the won?
ders of this troublous time, with its manifold
Transformations, In whtcb' we all seem to be
standing on onr heads, and the houses and
theatres and palaces diverted to uses the very
opposite of that to which they are accustomed,
without sharing somewhat of the recovered mad?
man's feeling, and admitting that he has perfectly
described the condition of Paris as a lunatic's
dream? If the madman was astonished at
the manner in which lt was proposed to
carry his letters out of Paris, what would
he have .said to Che method by which
lt is proposed to get answers back? Ic ls,
perhaps, well that tue doctor did not meution
this, or his patient might have gone clean mad
again. We nave tried all methods, aud have fail?
ed. One remains-namely, to get a pigeon to
carry back 30.000 answers. Bow ls a pigeon,
which will carry but the lightest feather weight
of a letter on Its tall, to convey to us 30,000 re?
plies? By means of photography, which has the
power to reproduce au Infinity of details in an
Infinitesimal space. A whole letter may be print?
ed by the photographer in the space of a pin
point, and many thousands of letters might in
this way b<? printed on a tliin sheet of paper,
which, on Its arrival In Paris, wonld be submitted
to the microscope and enlarged. Do not smile at
this scheme, or, ir you do, remember chat ic ls
wrung from hearts which are pining to have
news of their ramilles, and whish seize with sen?
sitive eagerness on any and every scheme which
may be suggested to bring them tidings of their
Yesterday the Anal blow was given to a scheme
for bringing back answers which was much want?
ed, but which inspired no raith whatever In the
mind or any sensible man, not to say a scientific
one. M. Wilfred de Fonvlelle undertook to pilo :
a balloon back to Paris. There ls no reason to
doubt that one of these days we may be able to
steer a balloon through the air-far more wander?
in! things have happened-bat as yet, at least,
we are not near a solution of the problem. Bow
ever, M. de Fonvlelle undertook the task, aud
some people put fatth In him. They constructed
for his use the largest balloon which has yet been
produced; they have been three weeks preparing
lt-we have been told every day for the last three
weeks that lt would start. It had a huge basket
flt to hold ten passengers, and lt was to bc Ailed
with hydrogen, which ls considerably lighter than
the ordinary coal gas used for the balloons of Na?
dar, and which, therefore, might be expected to
carry a greater load. If I had known for certain
that the balloon was going to start yester?
day I would have sonta dispatch by lt; but I had
given up all hope of lt and shortly arter midday,
accompanied by a friend who had agreed to pay
?80 ro get a dispatch oat lu De Fonvlelle's bal?
loon, La Liberte, I went up to Montmartre to see
what M. Nadar was doing with his "orostats," as
they are called herc. Conceive our horror as we
turned on the hill and saw the great balloon-so
great that it could be no other than La Liberte
rolling tu the sky aud pitching about like a drunk?
ard. There was a stroug wind, and now lt heeled
over, then recovered itself, now again heeled over.
then steadied for a minute, and at length got lost
in the driving clouds. What of thc ten passen?
gers? Am.' what of the luggage and sacks of let?
ters that were to accompany them ? We Btood
aghasiyfnll or horrible conjectures, which were
all the more pammi as this particular balloon had
beon promoted by a company of whom about
half were Englishmen : end the balloon might even
b? described as itali English. The simple fact
was this, as we afterwards learned, that the
captain of the balloon, M. de Fonvlelle, had
not taken sufficient care that the balloon should
be held down or anchored with the proper wt.ght.
The weights were taken out In order chat the pas?
sengers might gel in, and while the balloon was
kept down ny a number of men, lt gave a lurch.
Some or the men let go-'hey had no notion or
being carried up Into the air: the rest who held
on were too light to keep the balloon down; they,
too, were compelled to let go, aud od' it weuc
without cargo of a nv kind. You ami nil the good
people who are outside of Paris will laugh, and no
doubt lt was comical en ugh to see the passen?
gers with their portmanteaus all ready to em?
bark, and their friends all collected around with
field glasses to take the lase view or them, and
behold, at the appointed hour, off goes the bal
loon without a soul, lint lc is a sud business tor
us who are shut In, and who have many longing
thoughts of the world outside.
However, there for the present ls an end to
M. de Fonvlelle's balloon and to his hope of steer?
ing tc back. lc ls i he seconl serious misfortune
that has happened to our balloons, tho first hav?
ing happened toa balloon which storied on the
Itu, thc same day as Gambetta's. I ibserve that
In a telegram from Berlin, which appeared lu the
Times of October 10. lt ls stared that two balloons,
with a complete cargo of official correspondence,
have been t?Ken, Tile telegram, however, does
not state whether Ol' not these were what are
called herc ballons montes or ballons Ubres. A
lew rree balloons were sent out about a ronnlghc
ago but they only contained unimportant.letters,
no passengers, no aeronaut, and lt ls two or these,
as I take lt, that ure recorded as having been cap?
tured, lu the Beniu telegram. At the same Hmo,
lt ls right tu mill that two mounted balloons lort
here, from which pige ms returned, lint without
any .message, lt is only un Inference that these
balloons are safe; still, lc ts au Inference which
approaches to certainty. Of the four pigeons dls
putciied from the two balloons which left here
on October 7, with M. Gambetta, only one hail a
message on its wings; all the others meant saff
arrivai, although they hud no message.

Toe amusing comeuT.T o? "Irish Assurance
and Tanc?e Modesty," with Mr. Florence as
"Pat,?,.and Mrs! Florence as '?Nan.cjr," keptihe
audience last night Ina conacuous roar oflaugh
ter, from first to last. Both the Stars appeared
tobe entirely In their orbit; and the audience
showed its appreciation by,eucoitug the charming
songs of Mis. Florence, and by calling both her
and Mr. Florence before, the curtain between the
acts. ' ...
The sec?n* piece, 'Thrice Married," ff such a
thing were possible, delighted the .audience" yet '
more, and afforded a fine scope for the wonderful
versatility of Mrs. Florence, who appealed as a
Spanish danseuse; as a French cantatrice, apd as
a zouave, acquitting herself In every one of these
roles with her usual brilliancy. To-night is the
last night of the Florences, and those of our citi?
zens who have not yet seen them* should by all
means embrace the opportunity and get an eve-.
mug's hearty enjoyment. The programme for to?
night is the Irish drama, "Temptation, or the
Irish Emigrant;'.' to conclude with Mrs. F:orence's
protean comedy, ''Mischievous Annie!"
The Davenport Brothers gave another of their
extraordinary s?ances last evening to an Immense
audience, largely representing the Intelligence
and culture of Charleston. The names of several
gentlemen had been handed to Professor Fay as a
committee for the occasoa, but they not respond,
lng, Major E. Willis and Mr. E. Horry Frost were
requested to ascend the stage and keep watch
over the performances of the tricksy sprites.
The same formalities were gone through with as
upon the previous occasion, with the same re.
suits. Major Willis, Mr. Frost and Mr. DeFon
taine were successively tied within the mysterl
ous cabinet between the brothers, with one
hand grasplag each of them, and, in
this position all the marvellous, edee ts . were
experienced which we recorded yesterday. Invi?
sible bauds plucked at their persons, the instru?
ments within executed a ghostly danoe, and dis?
coursed a most weird and (unmelodlus music,
showing that the spirits had at least not gradu?
ated in the highest schools of harmony. The
hands which were protruded from the aperture
in the cabinet, In the sight of the audience, were
white and delicate, and of different sizes and
shape'. Sometimes they appeared before the
doors were entirely closed, steall og along the Inner
sides, of the cabinet lu a decidedly eerie way. Mr.
De Fon taine, upon being released rrom ?his posi?
tion in the cabinet, announced lt as his profound
conviction that that was -'about the scariest
place he had ever been in his life;" a confession
which the audience seemed highly to relish.
The dark s?ance which succeeded was still more
incomprehensible. The whole hall was darkened
and guitars and tambourines curvetted around
and about in wavy lines, which the phosphorus
with which they had been rubbed endowed with
a peculiarly spectral appearance. Professor Fay,
with his hands securely tied behlud his back, and
his leet tied together and to the chair, both knots
being sealed with sealing-wax by thejcoratnlttee,
and two coins placed upon his feet which the
slightest movement would displace, was despoiled
of his coat, clothed again with Major Willis's coat
which had been placed near him, and all without
seal or coins being ever so slightly disturbed.
This last feat was deoldedly the cleverest or the
evening, and was admirably performed.
Altogether, we are bound to admit that all that
the Davenports promised was abundantly exe?
cuted, and that, In whatever light the perfor?
mance be viewed, lt certainly far exceeds .-In
mystery and marvellousness anything we have
ever before witnessed.
There will bc one more entertainment this
evening, and all who wish to be puzzled may
then be grail tied to their heart's content.
THE NEW MASONIC TEMPLE_The action of
the Grand Lodge on Wednesday night, In adopt?
ing the report of the committee on a new hall,
has made the building or the new Masonic Tem?
ple In Charleston a tlxe J fact. The pian adopted,
upou which the new temple ls to be erected, was
furnished to thc committee some time ago by Mr.
J. II. Devereux, who has likewise drawn the de?
signs for every part and portion or the new build?
ing In detail. Tho building Is to be erected in the
rear of the present Masonic Hall, aud when com?
pleted will be worthy of the numerous and honor?
able order by whom lt ts put up. The exertions
or the Grand Lodge, and the noble aid furnished
by thc subordinate lodge's, have raised a sum or
?22,000, which is estimated to be very I?SJ? the.
amount required. No builder has yet been Axed
upon who will undertake to carry out the plans
or Mr. Devereux.
Thc new temple will-have a front or eighty-six
reel, with a depth of slxty-rour feet, comprising
thc lot In the rear or the present building. Thc
small btlck house now on thc lot will be pulled
down as soon as the building is begun. The front
ls to bo on Wentworth street, with a main en
truuee twenty feet wide, leading to a vestibule
beautirully frescoed and np.ched for statuary. On
the ground floor the building will be divided Into
three large stores, with glass fronts, on Went?
Thesecond floor, which will be seventy reet
long by sixty-feet wide, will be used as one
Graud Lodge room, and will afford ample room
for delegations rrom all the country lodges. This
hall will connect with the present hall, which will
suit admirably for a supper room, the old re?
freshment hall being given up for cloak-rooms,
Ac. Two large lodge rooms, each sixty feet by
thirty, will constitute the third floor of the build?
ing, with small rooms adjacent for the prepara?
tion and examination rooms.
The main hall, from which a magnificent stair,
way will ascen t to the upper stories, will bo light,
ed with long Gothic windows, from floor to ced?
ing, and the walls arc to be frescoed and gold
panelled. Judging from the design, the building
will be one of the most beautiful ornaments or
our city, and with the new patent system or ven?
tilation to be used in adjusting the windows, will
also be one of tho most comfortable to Its occu?
pants in the hottest weather we may have. The
temple will present a different appearance from
any other building In the city when completed;
and although Mr. Devereux has shown his skill In
every part of our city, this last effort will be the
orownlng piece to his other performances.
