A niYSIClAN'S APPETITE.
The following extraordinary but well-authea-ticated
statement appears in the London M edf
"The celebrated Dr. Fordyce dined every day
for more than twenty years at Dolly's chop
bouse. His researches In comparative anatomy
had led him to conclude that man through cus
tom eats oftencr than nature requires, one meal
a day being sufficient for that noble animal tbe
lion. At 1 o'clock, his accustomed hour of
dining, tbe doctor regularly took the seat
at a table always reserved for him, on
which were placed a silver tankard lull of
strong ale, a bottle of port, and a measure con
taining a quarter ot a pint of brandy. The
moment the waiter announced him the cook
put a pound and a half of rump steak on the
gridiron, and on tbe table some delicate trifle as
a eon bouche to serve untrl the steak was ready.
This was sometimes half a broiled chicken,
sometimes a plate of fish. When be had eaten
this he took one glass ol brandy, and then pro
ceeded to devour bis steak. When be had
finished bis meal be took the remainder of his
brandy, having during the dinner drank the
tankard of ale, and alterwards the bottle ot port.
Iletaus daily spent an hour and a half of bis
time, and then returned to his bouse In Ksex
street to give his six o'clock lecture on che
mistry. 119 made no other meal until his re
turn next day at 4 o'clock, at Polly's."

A grand Republican mass meeting, to cele

last evening. Over three thousand persons
were present, and the square was ablaze with
torches and transparencies, while several bands
enlivened the occasion with music Mr. John
T. Cook, a prominent colored man, was elected
Chairman, and in the selection of Vice-Presidents
and Secretaries no distinction was made
as to color.
srEECH OF GENERAL NTE.
Senator Nye, of Nevada, was the first speaker,
and congratulated those present npon the grand
triumph of tbe party in the election. This, he
said, is an age of progress an age of wonders.
In a few short years the chains ot the slaves
have been Btricken off, and they are now
clothed with tbe rinhtsof Amerlcancitlzenshlp.
The nation bad been trifled with, had been dis
organized, and 11 was now tbe duty ot the Re
publicans to reorganize the disaffected section
upon a basis of true republicanism. Bhetidan

of the party are doing it, and those who will
not loin in the work are not wanted.
LETTER FROM GENERAL BUTLER.
The following letter from General Benjamin
F. Butler was read:
Washington, D. C, June 6. To the Chair
man of the radical Republican Committee of
the city of Washington sir: While acknow
ledging the receipt of your courteous invitation
to attend a meeting of my Republican fellow
citizens of this dUtrlct, and to celebrate the
glorious victory achieved on Monday last, I am
grieved to be obliged to say that engagements
of the most pressing character prevent my
availing myself of the intended honor. I tru-tt,
though absent, I may be permitted to mingle
my congratulations with your In the trluui
ptumt success lu a political conflict which has
more than ft party significance. To the people
of this distilct ihe great privilege has
been given first to demonstrate that
lately enfranchised citizens of the repub
lic have, lb the exercise of their newly
acquired right of citizenship, shown them
selves fully capable of its execution with quiet
determination, undisturbed by threats, not de
ceived by frauds, not swerved by cajoling, not
influenced by flattery: the colored man, guided
by intelligence, has used the ballat in peace as
he did the musket in war for the best good of
tbe country. Your election has fully Justified
the action of Congress in giving the control of
the Capitol of the country to all without dis
ci lmlnution. It is an earnest of what we may
expect irom the votes of tne colored citizens
tfiroii ,oul lne enl"'e (South upon the great
question oi" reorBauifin" government and
of establishing their liberty under the
law. II me coioreu cmzeus eyerwuo1;
imitate your example as who now doubts tuey
will? then, in spite of the machination of the
enemies of their laoe, is their future and that
of the South secured. When I say enemies, I
speak advisedly, because while the term might
seem unjust to those who beld the negro in
slavery when permitted by the Constllulon
and laws, now wheu by the same Constitution,
aud laws be U an American citizen, whoever
throws ihe slightest obstacle In the path of his
full eDjoyraeut of that great boon becomes at
once bis enemy and the enemy of his country.
Specially is your action timely and important
at the present moment, because even uo? the
Executive is preiarlog to hinder the true
operation of the beneficent acts of Congress
for tbe reconstruction of the South, by declar
ing thai tbe Provisional Governments 11 leg Uy
esiablished by himself without warrant of
law, in a usurpation of Executive power, are
the supreme law of tbe land, and vesting iu
late Rebels the conduct of the civil adminis
tration in the insurgent States. Already has an
authoritative opinion of his law oilicer been
promulgated, which restores to political power
almost all those engaged in the Rebellion
whom Congress deemed it necessary for the
safety of the Republic to disfranchise for their
attempted overthrow of the Government, thus
evading the law, and thwarting and overruling
the wise orders of the Generals in command
regulating tbe registration of loyal men only
as voters. In a few days, unless checked by
tbe near approach ol the meeting of Congress, an
Executive order will be promulgated proclaim
ing that the Military Reconstruction act does not
give to the commanding officer of tbe district
any right or power to interfere with the civil
Governors of those States. If that be so, it fol
lows that the removal of that red-handed Mayor
Monroe, of New Orleans, by Sheridan, the sup
pression of tbe riot fostering city of Mobile, bv
Pope, and tbe wise and much needed legislative
oruers ol Sickles, reducing South Carolina to
live under a government of law, are all illegal
and void. It must follow as a logical sequence,
now that the fear of immediate impeachment
st ems to be removed, that tbe gallant Sueridan
will be superseded to give place to someotiioer
supposed to be more pllaut lo the will of the
Administration; and to what end? That the pre
sent organization of the governments of those
States may remain intact, to perpetuate a
landed aristocracy fatal to the advance of
liberty and equal rights. Is It not a sell-evident
political truth, where the land Is held In large
tracts by the employer, and to be tilled by the
employed, there can be no just and true field
for the exercise of republican citizenship? And
it is one of the pressing exigencies of the coun
try, as the very basis of reconstruction , that
some plan must be devised by which the lands
of the South may be divided among those who
shall occupy and till them. With regrets at not
being able to be with you, I have the honor to
be, very respectfully, your obedient servant,
Benjamin F. Rutlku.

to bis soldiers. It congratulates them warmly,

A meeting of some two hundred of tbe delude ' men
end women who have had too much confidence In
the Baulc of Commerce of Jacob liarker, recently
failed, met In council last evening, at Lyceum llall,
to bear the report or tbe committee appointed lo exa

"The committee ol eight or ten men. ef whom Mr.
George Boule was chairman, occupied the stand. Uo

Mr. Soule made bis statement, ne advised calra

the committee was sept by Ita aecretary, thla record
was read. The committee acted with prudence, for
He avoidance of excitement. A resolution to adver
tise on the door of the bank themee ing of depositors
was abandoned to prevent excitement. When Mr.
Barker appeared before the committee on Friday Its
chairman aoked a statement from him. lie replied
that his clerks were busy balancing tho bonks; that

Inr politic to stale at preseut Its precite locality.
On a lurtber demand from tbe chairman for a state
ment ol his assets he mentioned from memory, aided
by slight memoranda, a list ol houses and other real
estate lo this city and suburbs, owned or partially
owned by him, together with the Incumbrances upon
them, and the value at which be estimated them,
their present rate of rents, etc.
To all ol this the meeting listened with intense anx

much confidence, could have been so easily gullwd.
Mr. Barker said tbere Is no money ou band. He
bad a lew hundred oollara recently borrowed, lie
acknowledged the bauk was a perfect wreck, aud
that they could only gather Ihe fragments. And yet
bis estimate of tbe assets is too.Ooo, while bis estimate
or his liabilities is not so great; but unfortunately the
committee figure them very differeutfy, and Mr.
fsoule mentioned some Items showing the erroneous
character of Mr. Barker's estimates.
Mr. Barker suggested a Quixotic plan a kind ot
(.'rot-by lottery scheme or lolul slock real estate alt'alr,
in which his assets should be placvd at an assessed
value tor the benefit of his creditors. This, or eolng

When urged to go on. do business, and pa what he
