The Grkat Spectacle. From among
mny notices or the great spectacle of
Undine, to be presented here for the firsts
time this evening, ! we take , the following
from .the Dayton Ledger.
Last nlaht, this great spectacle was pre
sented for the second time, to a large audi
ence, among whom were many of our
Masonic'-visitors who remained over to
Witness the gorgeous entertainment, and
whose plaudits were evidence of the de
light created by the wonderful dancing of
the really great Marlacchi, and the various '
brilliant features that compose this great
production. - It was pronounced by uouie.;
of the strangers equal-to many ot the"
metropolitan sensations, and,1 they freely
expressed their surprise at finding such a
magnificent and thorough representation
in our city, and were lavish in their praise .
of the performance, and the enjoyment af-
toraea. Mr.' whitman - nab ou tmsoccas-
ton fulfilled the bill promised. .,, , ,;
Mile. Barritta is alao a magnet of attrac
tion, and with Mile. Sanda, Miss Mavory,
Mile. Panzera and the rest, form this ex
cellent combination. j
The lovers of operatic merit have a treat
in the really excellent and superior exhibi
tion ot vocal talent displayed by the charm-
ing favorite Mrs., James A.. Oates, with ;
whom play-zoers are already acquainted.
and who ou this occasion deleniaies in vi
vacious style the fairy songstress of the -water
"Undine." Mrs. Kneass and Miss
Eneass by their acting are entertaining in
their roles, and Mr. Barnes and the rest of .
the cast are excellent.
The acenio effects must be seen . to be .
properly appreciated,-as description can
not convey a just idea ot their beauties, and
are- without doubt the most brilllentover
presented this community lorminz with
the whole a rare treat.. ' " 1

Thb Black asd Tan Meeting. The
Black and Tanners held another ''Citizens' '
meeting at the Union Club Rooms on Sat-"
nrday, from which they carelully excluded.
all Democrats The communication from
the Republican -County- Executive "Com
mittee, and the, reply of the Democratic
County Executive Committee thereto were
read. A resolution was adopted deprecat- (
ing all violence, and disavowing any intent -
to cause "persons; not voters, "td-present
themselves at the polls to vote. . It calls
upon the Republicans of the various wards
organize and .attend the polls 83 that .
full vote of the city may be polled in
November, lite preamble of this reaolu-.:
tion says that tbe overture of the Repub
licans for " peace have been rejected." ;
There Is hot a word of truth in tliis.'.The
Democracy, through their committee, have -
said, "Don't try to vote negroes and there
wlll lje peace." The Democracy will say j
the same thing -at the polls on -Tuesday, .
November 33. i They mean just what they
say, : - ; :
T. M. C. A. LiacTCRES-fWe learn that .
tickets for the course of seven lectures, In
cluding that of Rev: W. Marley Punshon, .
and for sale at the low price of Two Dol
lars. Tickets for single lectures will be
Fiftycents. . J i. . :. .
Several of our citizens went to Chicago
and Cincinnati to hear Punshon, and as- -sure
us that it was well' worth' their time,
trouble and expense, .' . 1
The committee having the matter in
charge have employed none but first class"..
Lecturers, and thus incurred a heavy ex-
pense. We trust citizens will show their
aprnvciation of aqch , policy,, by takingr,
once, enough season tickets to make tbe
course a financial snccess. ' The price baa
been put at' Two Dollars to put these In-
structive entertainments within the reach
of all. Remember,' you can get the entire
course for the price of four single tickets.

Parties.
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 24.
' The Republican has a special from Little
Rock, Arkansas, which says tbe report of
the assassination - of Congressman Hinds
and the wounding of Hon. J. R. Brooks is
distrusted. The dispatch farther says the
Radical party defeated both Hinds and
Brooks out of the nomination to Congress.
Both were discountenanced, making a can
vass arraying the negroes against the
Radical Central Committee, Rice & Co-,
and were capable of doing the- Radical
party great Injury. The Radicals charge'
tne Killing to tne uemocrats, out ine en
deavor, to fix it on them will be fruit-i
less, as tbe Democrats had every
thing to hope Irom the defection of
Brooks and Hinds, which would eventually
be disastrous to Radicalism. It was the in
terest of the Democracy to preserve their
lives. It was the interest of Rice & Co. to
pnt them out of the way. - It they were
killed the Democrats would suffer while
the Radicals would, gain. The death -of
both disposes of these dangerous malcon
tents, who were the most influential with!
