Another good and jolly crowd of our
citizens turned out last night in attendance
upon the fair and festival given by the
Woman's Christian Temperance Union, at
their hall on Tenth street. It was their
second and also their best night, for many
who were not present the night
before were on hand. There was
no lagging iu tho energy of the
managers nor in the enthusiasm of the
vinitors. The ladies ot the Union have
shown themselves to be good judges of
what will meet the wants of our people in
the way of entertainments, and proved that
tiiey arc excellent managers. Tho total
amount realized during the two nights, is
about eighty five dollars.
Night before last, after the perform
ance in the atheneum was over and the
audience had departed, Miss Katie Putnam
came into tho audience portion of the hall,
where some of her friends had remained
to congratulate her, and chatted with them
pleasantly for several minutes. While
talking something was heurd to drop, but

The Bulletin, with its accustomed
enterprise, has brought sun spots within
the reach of its readers, and now announces
that a spot is visible a little to the right of
aid below the centre of the sun's disk. By
protecting the eye with a piece of smoked
or colored glass the spot may be seen like a
black speck on tho smooth, yellow surface.
An opera-glass magnifying three or four
times makes tho spot conspicuous. A tele
scope shows it to be composed of two huge
spots, each many thousand miles in extent,
and surrounded by a vast shadowy border,
or penumbra. A notion may be formed of
the tremendous forces that arc at work up
on the sun when it is recollected that tho
earth could probably bo dropped into
either of tht huge chasms that this spot
contains. Yet such holes in the sun arc
often formed or closed up in a few days, or
even a few hours.
Wc publish this morning tho message
ol Mayor Thistlewood, vetoing the ordinance
which grants the right of way to the Street-rail-way
Company, in which ho gives his rea
sons for refusing his signature. The mayor
raises two objections to the ordinance, first:
that the petition is not such as would in law
warrant tho passage- of tho ordinance, since
it does not, as the law requires that it shall
represent one half of the property frontage of
the btrccts upon which tho road is to bo run.
Secondly, ho objects to tho length of tho
time for which tho right of way is given,
and to tho stylo of rail and general con
struction of tho road that the ordinance
permits. Ho thinks that tho council
should reservo tho right "to require tho
use of a standard rail and gunge nt the
expiration of fivo or ten years." Tho
messago was patiently listened to and an
other voto taken upon tho ordinance and,
not receiving tho two-third vote ot the
council, it was lost. I
