It appears that Stephe, who was champion, didn't want to come up 10 the ccr itch when challenged by a Mr. Nil ns, who think he can ct up a ball thi . will have a pood "run," and poihaos "pocket'' somt thine handsome, like that other afl'iir a', the Academy of Music last week. The tour .la ment was opened by Mr. Phclnn, in a Ph -Ian way, by pushing tho joker w ;h ihe French nai, II. Carme; bot the end or tho game showe 1 Carme a little alwad. S nic ol the "shots" ma lc by "I renchy" were wonderful, liclow we give 1& M. CABME'g FAVORITE F03IITOX. on the home stretch. Tho greatest "stretch ing" be did was initi o Twentieth Round, when lie came tip "smiling," caroming his ball at an angle of ICi degrees acres the top of the table, down one leg, across the floor at an angle of fortv-flve decrees, up the other lee, an I into the 'po set" of the tuble; and In the next tshot tha lall went up Monsieur's lctf, and into his panta loon's pocket. It is very seldom that a shot like this is ever 6een in this countr' . With (he escep' tion of Heller's Sphjnx in the same Hall, yn think we have never seen aDvtluue so wonder ful, and yet so per'ccMy sia.p'e. Oa inepectin? the "ball" closely, which was a Itd one, we dis covered a small string of gum-elastic attache! to it, and the other end to his suspender buttons; thus, by a very vitrorous push, n flew across th3 tabic, jumped over on to the floor, up his leg, and into his pocket, which the "scorer" said was equal to 9'J points in the came. Tho ball was purchased that aiternoon of the yoimcr man who tells them on the Custom House steps. "hbri you ake now, return balls !" In the evening of the same day a Mr. Palmer and Mr Plunket commenced. Palmer would ttrike the little joker and plunk it rijtht into the pocket; Plunket would go right after that, knock it out and down into the hack yard and up the front stairs, rigV. pa t tee b x ollic-, without a "check." Great cheering lor Plunket. Score stood 1280 to 3. Palmer cot warmed up to his "Work; takinc the "cue" iu hin teeth, and putting both hands in his pocket, he ran around the table three times, when turning a summersault, he struck the b dl with the butt end of the cue in the beautiful nud ccientilic manner expressed in the following: engraving. palmer's great shot. The audience thought he was playing with the "Palmer marbles," and allowing "Plunket" no chance for his "white ally." The score after this wonderful shot stood 1280 to 4016, Palmer having tcored 4013 by this one Bhot alone, but Plunket coming on the carpet again early, picked up both of the balls, and put them in his pocket, and kept them there lor half an nour (great cheering lor Plunket), the only player, tho scorer said, who had succeeded in keeping his opponent's ball in the "pocket" for so long a time at one play. Plunket's score now stiol 9997, only three to make to get the 10,1)00; but the evening growine late, and other players there, the 3 were postponed Ml another time. This was the only same In which "push" shots wero allowed. If this thing had continued they would hare ha 1 to get a set of blank books to keep the count lu. At tho close of the Con test Pierre Cnrme uu 1 IS. H. Nelms played. Mr. Csrme not don.it hi 1 on-ttiest, his last snot went in under the clot'i ut one point sud came out at another, and caron -1 into Nelms' eye with con siderable force. Tue -corer said lfiij for Carme, but Nelms fa l.-d to "se? it," or, indeed, anything else for some t'mri: a d the impression is pretty peueral that somebody's eye will bo shut up every evening when Mr. Curme treats the audience to some of hN fartrv ahnts.

They arc so various in their forms. I am sometimes tempted to believe that they take their character fiom the condition of the stomach. Tho other night, iu coming up Chcsnut street, I concluded to ej into a restiuraut, and call for a dish of fried oysters. They were soon ready, and nearly trf soon disposed of. They were firm, large, fat fellows, and, I must confess, tasted dellelously, I did not feel anything the worse of them. They seemed to lie snugly where I placed them When I retired to my bed, which was about 11 o'clock, I felt rather wakeful, and changed my position frequently. I had always understood that it was best to lie on your right side when your stomach was. crowded, so I tried it ou that side the longest. Ihitstilll could not sleep. then thought of a plan to induce sleep taught me In early childhood, which was to go over tue alphabet backwuid, or imagine a flock of sheep jumping over the leuco, and try to count them. The alphabet plan failed, but the sheep ron quered me. I got to sleep, aud apparently In a little whllu 1 began to dream.. I dreamed that I was in tho Contlnen'al Hotel waiting to sec a I'rf nd, and while sitting there a half dozen of Chinese came in and took their seuts lust at my si'le. I found that ihey could speak Ihe English language, ulthough in a some what broken manner, and so I entered luto con versation with tneiii. I asked them waence they came. They replied Irom California. then apked them what wa their motive in l.-av lug that countr' , po rich with precious ores, and coming into thit. jilonf They replied they v, re i heated oi 1 1 J the products of their labor t here, and longed to get into amoro honest com munlty. "Besides," they remarked, "as you are attempting to reconstruct this country, we wish to infuse son.c of tho light of our 'Celestial Em pire' into jour new organization. Wo think that we have a belter r? 1m ion, bctrer morality, and better manners and customs. "We understand that yon are getllng tired of your Christian religion, and are seeking for a new one, and ours we can recommend as the best the very best. When you adopt it you can indulge in a nice dish of rats and mice, and can burn your dead instead of burying, and, what will add muph to your external appearance, you will find tails growing out of the back part of your heads, like ihoBe we wear, and which you know made little ' Tommy1 so great a favorite am ong the ladies in New York." While engaged in this conversation we heard a band of music playing on the street, and we rushed to the w indow. To our great surprise wo snw a long string of carriages, and each carriage was drawn by six black horses. The spectacle was lather grand and imposing. But what was the meaning ot all this parado? The Chinese looked to mo for some explanation, but I was not ' able to give it. I turned 1o a stranger, who stood by me. and asked what was tho design of this night display He said It was the first turnout of the jlouwlbcUied Cru saders. The carriages stopped before the hot l. I wtnt out to take a view of them. They were nil well filled. The company consisted of Span ish, French, Dutch, Irish, and English. There was a dreadful contusion of sounds when they all spoke. There was one thing remarkable about them. They couldall swear in the Eng lish language, and they were continually cursing something, but what it was I could not tell. Over and around the carriages I noticed certain dark and winged figures, having wings tipped with fire, and their eyes sparkling lik the jewelry of hell. They frequently bended over the company, and whispered in their ears. On the horses' heads were small flags, and every flag had a motto inscribed upon it. I read a number of them. One was "Moses too old for Young America." Another, "Old Monongahela gives the best inspiration." Another, "Pleasure is our goddess." Another, "Lager Beer first, Lager Beer last, Lager Beer all the time." Another, '.'The Sabbath an old fogy Institution." Another, "Tho Ten Commandments a humbug." Another, "The Bible the foe of man." Another, "A good time coming," A speech was now called for, and Immediately a portly, ruddy-faced gentleman began to address tho large crowd now gathered on the pavement; "fientlemen of Philadelphia, and citizens of the noble Keystone State :-I am proud to be per mitted to address you this evening. I have occasionally addressed you before. My voice is not unfamiliar to you. We who are in these coaches ore the representatives of a large orga nization whose object it is to obliterate the lat relic of superstition that may have been transt- mitted to us from former generations. We be lieve iu the supremacy of reason and common sense. Wo arc freemen in every sense of the term free from the trammels of what is called conscience free from the control of public sen timentfree from the despotic influence of churches free from the Bible from the ten commandments and free from all the estab lished us ages of civilized society. Is not this lreedom indeed, gentlemen? a lreedom for which we have often longed, but never before succeeded in obtaining. We believe in the right of every man to make a swill-tub of himself if he chooses. We believe in the doctrine of free love, which we practically endorse. We believe in levelling down all days of the week to suit ourselves. We believe in the right of printing, buying, selling, drinking, riding, dancing, travel ling, stock-jobbing, sowing and ploughing, brew ing and distillering.carpenteriug and blacksmith ing, house building and ship building, and, in a word, in pursuing whatever avocation we pleaso on Sunday as well as Monday, if in our judgment the public good'1 requires it. We arc indeed a law unto ourselves. Inspired by the sublimity of onr sentiments and the dignity of our cause, wo design to throw ourselves, soul and body, into the work of remodelling our entire social ystem. Our purpose is as (ire in our bones. To-morrow we set sail for Mount Sinai. We cherish a bitter hostility against that old in- ttitvlion, and we are determined to batter it down. To it, and what transpired upon it, wo can trace all our difficulties. The Ten Com mandments had their birth there, and they are like a thorn in our side. 'Down with Mount Sinai P is our war cry." In my dream 1 looked and beheld the carriages, aud the men and the horses were all gone. And I was carried to the foot of the mount where were once thunders and lightnings and a thick cloud and the voice ol a trumpet exceedingly loud Tbert it still tood, with its huge rock-ribbed sides clothed with terrible mnjesty. I soon beheld in the distance the gathering of an armed force. As they approached their number swelled until they seemed to crowd the valley through which they marched. At length, as the Mount burst upon their vision, they raised a shout of defiance, like the bellowing of wild bulLs. Just then a deep, hoarse muttering was heard, as if it proceeded from the mount, saying: "Beware! Beware!" But onward they rushed, until at length they crowded around its very base. Soon their arttl lory was heard belching forth its tire aud thunder. The mount shook its huge sides, and seemed to heave with a storm of irrepressible Indignation After the lapse of some hours, finding that their artillery .was unavailing, tho great multitude became maddened with anger. Their eyes flashed like balls of fire. They rent their gar ments and screamed with agony. In the midst of this excitement and despair some of the lead' Ing oflicers resolved upon a dreadful experiment. It was that of butting their heads against tho rocks. Boon a large space was cleared, and at the work they resolutely went. Battering rams indeed, but rather more soft and pliable than those of ancient mould.1 The old mount heaved its sides again and muttered, "Save what little brains you have;" and Just then the motley army was seized with a panic, and hurriedly re treated to a large plain some miles distant Here they held a council of war. What was to be done next? One proposed that, if Mount Sinai could not be demolished, they pro ceed to erect an altar, on which to burn the Bible. Let the Bible bo extinguished, aud Mount Slnal would be divested of Its terror and its glory, and the law of tho S ibbath would be repealed forever. Soou the altar was erected, aud on it crackled and suiokd a blaze, blue, hvid, the splies of which seemed eyes, eujer aud hungrily waiting for their victim and prey. Tho bum of the vnPt nrmy, meanwhile, increased like that of ninny wnves ncarlug the shore. Atlas; voices were heard .crying: "ft is time forth with the old imposture." And tho Bible was brought forth, and one of the officers, a grey haired man, took tt into his hands. Words would fa 1 me to describe the multitudo when the Book appeared. Some shouted with savatra Joy; other? mnltered "curses, not loud, but deep." One cried: "It maddened my mother.'' Another: "It made my sister drown herself." A third: "It has cost mo many a night of agony." A fourth: "It has always stood before me like an angel with a drawn sword when I have attempted to gratify my lawless paslons." Soon the officer approached the altar, held the volume over the flames, and uttered the curse. What it was I heard not distinctly, for each word was lost in loud volleys of applause. But as he held it in his grasp and was uttering his maledictions over it, I saw the Book becom ing radiant with a strange lustre, brightening at every word, as it were, uttering a silent protest, and giving the lie, in light, to the syllables of In sult. And when he ceased there was silence. And as he is about to drop the Book into the b'lrning, I beard a voice, like that which came from the mount, saying, again, like ten thnu deis " Beware t" and, turning round, I saw speeding from the mountain, the figure of a man his eyes shining like the, sun hU hair streaming behind him his right hand stretched out before. And as tho multitude open, by their trembling and falling to tho ground, a thousand ways before him, he approaches, as cends, and takes the Book, and looking up to heaven, and around the earth, exclaims: "The Word of the Lord the Word of the Lord endur- eth forever 1" And lo 1 the altar seemed to shape Itself Into a throne, and the man sat upon it, aud "the Judgment was set, and the Books opened." And I awoke, and behold it was a dream, and yet it was not a dream. FINANCIAL J E I O V A Li TO NEW OFFICE.
