The fun continued until shout sir o'clock, when the park was closed until after supper, but the storm prevented its fort lier opening. The operations of the Arctic Ice Com pany (the owners of the rink.) in this neighborhood, have been of the most extensive character. ^They puroluised, some time qgu, eleven acres of land, ly ing along the south bank of the Christi ana, just esbt of the Third street bridge, mill* here they have made preparations fo/ 'establishing themselves ill tlio ice business on a large scale. Of this ground the skating rink occupies nt least seven acres, and tlio balance bu ildings. The large house on the creek bank will lie, when completed, 50*100 fee^, feet high to the square or. 18 feet to the peak. It. will be capable of holding many hundred tons of ice. ■ The offices, waiting rooms and restaur ant compromise a building 100 feet long on tlio opposite sido of the rink. The waiting lop ms pré wall «armed, and in a few days the restaurant will be pro vided with everything necessary to the comfort if hungry skaters. The skating rink i.-i tilled from the Christiana by means ufa sluice."and yes terday it contained two feat eight inches of water. It is capable of containing from four to five feet of water. The rink was established by the Com pany as it mere matter of protection in their ice cutting operations that a pond of such a size to ttie city would be sure to attract a «•roa d hug, cutting ot i is occupied by and 32 who love Rood skating will find plenty of it hui*o.
