It in true wo arc iar aueuu in ork , rcri'i't. Many of our mocnaniw own tu(,lr own house, and many are 'lv,.io to own thoin. We are not huddled toother k0 Bliecp in a eattlfl oar, but on tr-.i contrary each and every one has roo".i ouotlKb. to turn In. Then, again, rents, aJ'noufth cxhorliitantly hitfh, are yet within reach of a few of the more lni'ky oues, and this last remark hrlup-s UK to the )ilU of our recital. To uo a "timlnt" phrase, wo would say that our oldc.t Inhabitant haa lonjx remembered the lilork of dwelling, tntnated on the south Bide of Chesnut street, between Fifteenth and Six teenth street, and known us Colonnado How. For years these dwellings were oecnplcd by the first families of Philadelphia, and were con sidered the fashionable rcHideneos of our eity. Hut Tune, In his ever-onward march, ha. wrought many changea, and has not spared this particular eection. limpness moving westward has caused our western residents to move still further wot in order to give way for necessary improvements, and thus Colonnade How has been vacated by Its former oecnpants, only to bo modernized and rendered yet more attractive to our rising gene ration. Some eighteen months apjo John Crump, Esq., a gentleman long, well, and favorably known to most of our residents, seeing the growing de mand for hotel accommodations, determined, with a degree of public spirit worthy of the highest commendation, to erect a "model hotel" not ono large, massive, and Imposing, but one which for neatness, adaptability of pur pose, and comfort should not be excelled. To this end ho purchased four of the dwellings of the row, and, razing the old structures, has erected on their sites an establishment of which l'biladclphlaDS may well be proud. The new building is five stories In height, with a wing extension of four stories. The front is of marble, pleasing to the eye, and at tractive in appearance. The eastern portion of the flrct story is fitted up as a gentlemen's parlor; adjoining this Is the main hall or entrance, next the ladies' entrance, and next a fine, capacious room intended for store purposes. The base ment is occupied as a billiard saloon and tonso rial establishment. Of the interior arrangements we feel that we cannot speak in terms of exag geration. The furnishing Is the richest we have yet seen in a hotel. From the special chamber on the second floor to the neat little apartments for tangle gents on the fifth story the furniture is of the richest and most serviceable kind. The corridors and rooms are all covered with carpets of tapestry, and fine- lace curtains adorn the windows of every room In the house, except those on the fifth floor. Twe large boilers, located in the basement, furnish heat sufficient to warm the whole house, and in addition to this each room is furnfehed with a grate. On every floor bath rooms, with all the modern improvements, are numerous, and in almost every nook and corner arc fitted up neat basins and fountains. Speaking tubes are ranged throughout, und are accessible at almost every point. Mr. Crump, who Is both an architect and bnildcr, has in the construction of this building taken every precaution to guard against fire or accidents therefrom. Three separate and dls tinet stairways furnish the means for a speedy exit, and ranged on every floor are ample lines of hoee and water faucets. Perhaps the most noticeable feature of the whole concern Is the laundry. This In the pre sent case Is located In the fifth story a wise and novel idea, as by this arrangement all discom forts arising from the escaping steam and the other surroundings are obviated. The hotel contains eighty rooms, fifty-two of which are to be used as sleeping apartments, and its con struction has cost Mr. Crump over a quarter of a million of dollars. This bijou of a hotel has been thrown open to the public under the management of Mr. George Freeman, a gentleman who has had long and ample experience. Our residents will remember him in connection with the Girard, whilst strangers have lingering recollections of him ns the generous, social host Of the Jones House, IlurrUburg, and the United States, Atlantic City. tnE Jewish Passover. Last evening at sunset the f;rcat Jewish feast of the Passover beau. This seven days' feast wa3 instituted by Moses the lawgiver, in commemoration of the passing of the destroying angel over the houses of the Egyptians, when that unhappy race was stricken with the last great plague, the death of the first-born in every house. In the original celebration, the paschal lamb and the unleavened bread were eaten. The feast is generally observed by all true Israelites to this day. Many of the original cus toms are 6till rigidly adhered to. The houses of the Jews are thoroughly cleaned, and no flour cr old leaven is allowed to remain over into the new ecclesiastical year, according to the com mandment. During the continuance of the feast the unleavened bread only Is eaten. The festival occurs upon the 14th day of the Jewish month Niesan, or Abid, the first spring inouth of the Hebrews. A full history of the origin of the festival and directions for its ob servance may be found in the twelfth and thir teenth chapters of Exodus. BjtTH-ErF.N. Many Inquiries have been made as to what this name signifies. We can give no l etter definition than that it means "House of Pleasantness." The beautiful new church edi fice, at Uroad and Spruce streets, bearing this name under the pastoral case of Rev. James W. iSmlth, 1). D., is truly a pleasant as well as a beautiful place of worship. The members of the church held a meeting lust evening for the election of deacons, and the board now stands as follows: Charles T. Miller, L. Shumway, Joseph J. Head, Levi Knowles and Henry Croskev. A sermon to children will be delivered to morrow morning, at the Tabernacle Baptist Church, by the pastor. Rev. U. A. Peltz. The vouner neoule of this church have recently com menced a mission interest, at Sixteenth and Christian streets. To aid them in this work, Rev. H. M. Oallaher will deliver a lecture at the Tabernacle Church, on Monday evening. 25th inetant. Tickets sold at Gould's Piuno Rooms and at No. 530 Arch (street. Enoxnux School The Rev. T. TV.

He leaves tho echool in charge of competent and experienced instructors ior tne snort session now in progress, ana ne expects to return in time lor tue open ing of the fall session in September. Ia the meantime plans are maturing for the erection of additional buildings, as the school during the current year has been niied, to its utmost capacity, Mrsic Teachers' Examihatio This morning the examination of teaehers of music for public schools commenced at the Girls' Nor mal School, under the superintendence of Pro fessors Jean Louis, H.

Though the observ ance of Wooc1 Friday and of the other memorial days of Passion Week is practised by but few, nearly all ngrce in giving some prominence iu their church services to Raster as a church fes tival. The wisdom of this Is apparent, for this day is tho greatest of the great festivals, and should be observed in the moHt marked manner. Without n rlhcn God there could be no Christian Church. The rising again from tho dead is ono of the greatest events in the llfo of that wonderful personage. It is the event most vital to the wholo plan of redemption, and tho ono showing the superhuman power of the God-man the power over death and the grave. With a cruciliud Havioir only, wo would have a dead Church, a Church without unity, doctrlno, or believers. Without a firm belief in a risen Lord our lives would be but blanks, with no hope of a glorious resurrection for our own poor bodies. The death of a friend or relative would bo an irre parable lobs that few would bo able to bear. Jiut with a Saviour who has broken tho power of death, the uiilcrsnl Christian Church Is a liviug reality, our life is a glorious existence, by reason of the hope of a glorious immor tality. The origin of the word "Easter" is Involved In considerable doubt. Some say that the term Is derived from ostre, tho name by which one of the old Saxon deities was known. The feast of Eoxtre was formerly celebrated in the spring of the year somewhere about the time of the great Christian festival. It is claimed that when the character of the feast was changed from Pagan to Christian tho old name was retained. Some authorities state that the word is derived from the Anglo-Saxon Yst, a storm, from the stormy character of the season of the year; others maintain that it Is derived from Orter, which signifies rising, and this last supposition Is the one most generally received as correct. Raster is a movable feast, and the period during which it may occur extends from March 22 to April 25, thirty-five days. The rule for fixing the time as laid down lu the Prayer-liook of the Protestant Episcopal Church is as follows. "Easter day is always the first Sunday after the full moon, which happens upon or next after the 21st day of March; and If the full moon hap pens upon a Bunday, Easter day Is the Sunday after." From this feast all the movable feasts and fasts of the Christian year are calculated. There were formerly many curious secular customs peculiar to the season which were observed in all countries, but they have now mostly fallen lnt disuse. The common one of the Easter egg remains. The egg is a symbol of the resurrection and a new life. The fancy coloring has doubtless only come into use on account of its beauty. Where the barbarous but now common habit of "picking" originated it would be hard to tell. Doubtless it is the offspring of the fertile Vankee mind which is proverbial for picking flaws iu all time-honored usages. In the Lutheran Church of Germany this day, and also Good Friday, is more generally ob served than any other day of the year, sacred or otherwise. On Good Friday no one thinks of doing business, though many think nothing of driving their trade on every Sunday in the year. On Easter day every one must go to ohurch, though it is but the one annual visit. Easier Monday is kept as the greatest of jollifi cation days, after the services of Easter are over. These last two customs will be found to be generally observed by Germans in thin coun try alio. The services to-morrow in many churches of this city will be of a most interesting descrip tion. In the Moravian and in several of the Episcopal churches a sunrise service will be held. In all of the churches of the latter deno mination special Easter services will be held. In 8t. Mark's P. E. Church a communion ser vice will be held at 7 A, M., which will be fol lowed by the regular services ia the morning, afternoon, and evening. In the Roman Catholic churches the services will be as usual on tut day. The altars will be richly decorated with flowers. At the Cathedral Pontifical High Mass will be celebrated by Bishop Wood, and special musical performances may be expected. In several of the Lutheran churches the special liturgy for Easter will be used, and in many churches of all denominations the discourses will bear reference to the great lesson of the uay. THE COAL TRADE. The Prospects-Tile Supply The General Facts oi me weK-unoiuram. The prospects are still favorable for a continu ance of the strike in the Schuylkill region. No resumption is looked forward to at the begin ning of the week, as has been rumored. The operators are determined to stand by each other lor tne montu at least, now tuey may ieei 11 the stand-still continues all summer is another question. Rut it is to be hoped, for their own and the miners' benefit, that an agreement may be reached before long. lbe suspension does not appear to anect very greatly even those upon the direct line of the BchuyJKiii supply; tne iar marKei can actually laugh in the face of the strikers. In Boston the arrivals during three days consisted of 140 vessels, 10 brigs, and Rio schooners. Their cargoes amounted to the enor mous tonnage of 13,179 tons. A large number of these arrivals were from New Tork, although there were quite a number from Philadelphia. This looks very much as though New York com panies were able to supply all demands. The ron works along the lino of the Reading Rail road have either a sufficient supply on .hand or have made arrangements toobtain their coal from Wilkesbarre at a reasonable ngurc. me price of the article has been but little affected by the strike, and the supply is at present adequate for all demands, which it is likely to be for some time to come. This is not what eithor the strikers or operators anticipated, and the final result may be auectea dv tue iact. une siae or the other may see it to their interest to give way first and mako what tney can, in wmcu case me present strike is ended. Anotner mar. However. De expected on tue shortest notice. In New York city the demand has been light during the week, tor the reason that the weather is mild ana retailers are not running off their stock which, in anticipation of the strike, they had laid in, and because manufactures are dull and little business can be done with them. In Philadelphia the situation is about the same, as reported on last Saturday. There is no disposition on the part of dealers and manufacturers to purchase beyond their Immediate wants. At Mauch Chunk thero was transported over both railioads, during the week ending April 15. 1)9.440 16 tons, against U3.050 07 tons the cor responding week of last year an increase of Kl'JO Oil tons. Of tbis,,5U38 10 tons were delivered to other railroads for shipmont north, and 1)3,503 tons came south for delivery along the line and at tide. Our reports show a decrease of 8375 OS tons from the tonnages of the previous week. and nn increase of 814,590 08 tons ever last year giving an aggregate for the current year, to lat Saturday, of 1,244,343 01 tons. The following are the prices of eoal by the cargo at Port Richmond. For points other thau those east of Uordcntown or south of Cape Henry, rates are forty cents per ton higher: Schuylkill Red Ash, 4-454 50i Schnvlkill Steamboat. S4-50: Schuylkill Rroken mi.rrt O.

Clayton No. 1135 Vine street, was entered by thieves and robber", of a lot of linen, a numbar of shirts, and other articles of value. The thievas secured an entrance by breaking the padlock on the front cellar-door, and left through the rear. The loss sustained by Mr. Clayton will amount to near WHISKY. 4'nHKlrrnntliin Amonnat I he irtxilltrrs-Anathrr Until u thft Iticlunniid llm rtrl -,Hlfi 'Inan llfHiroyeii Capture f mn "1dIh. rewr" I'nrly. Early this morning tho United 8tatcs revenue otlkcrs inude nnoihcr mid on the Illicit distil lers in tho Richmond district. The raiding party was composed of Deputy Marshals Murray, Hciilc, lici nard, nml rlldgwny, ami Revenue Officers Clark, Hausij, Griflith, Maeaulay, and Johnson. The party started about 3 A. M., and arrived nt the field of operations about 4 o'clock. Not withstanding the precautions taken to keep the contemplated visit a secret, the distillers had got wind of the approach of the olllccrs, and had clotcd their still houses and decamped. Tho party destroyed altogether some lorty hogsheads f molasses mash, and cut up one still. Some of tho proprietors of these distilleries having received Information of the raid had re moved the mash mi (I stills from the premises as fourteen hogsheads of warm mash were found on an open lot in the vicinity. In a shed on the rear of No. 1130 Monmouth street, a still was found in operation and a man named Michael Friel and a boy who gave the name of Michael Mccnau. At noon, before Commissioner HiMer, Friel and tbo boy Mceimn had a hearing, on the tli arge of carrying on a distillery at No. 1130 Monmouth ttrtet in violation tti tho revenue laws. Deputy Marshal Ell R. Klcljrway testified tbuf.he saw the defendants this morning about 6 o'clock in t lie rear of No. 1130 Mnnuinutli street ; that the man Michael Friel was drawing off a still ; this still, which was quite hot, hart tire under It; when he kicked the door In Friel started to run out, and the officer took him Into custody ; the boy Mecnan then ran out of the distillery; the oillcer alto stated that he saw the boy in the still-honae, and that both pri soners were covered with mash when arrested. heveime oillctr il O Clark testified that he saw the boy running out of the distillery ; there was a still In the place with fire nmlerlt; there was also two or three hogRheads of mash in tho place; the still had been In operation; the cap of the still and the worm had been removed; there was some low wines lu a hogshead in the distillery. Oillcer Clark further testified that he had visited this place last fciiiturday, and notified the prisoner's wife to at if the business was not stopped they would get themselves in trouble. Friel was held in 11000, and Meenan in f500 ball, U answer at Couru Tiie Friends.' Asylum for Tnit Insane The fifty-third annual report of the Friends' Asylum for the Relief of the Insane, an institu tion which is situated in the Twenty-third ward, one mile west of Frankford, and which is supported by private contributions, has been issued. From it we learn that at the date of the last annual report there were 63 patients remaining In the Insti tution, 2T of whom were men and 85 were women. Hince then, 88, viz., 11 men and ii women, have been received, making a total of 00 patleuts who have been under care during the year. The greatest number in the house at any time was 68, the smallest 62, and the monthly average was 64. or these 8ft patients, 6 nave died and Vfi have been discharged, leaving 65 in the house at the present time, Vti of whom are men and 29 are women, or the i!6 paMents discharged, 14 were restored, 1 was much improved, 4 were Improved, and 0 were sta tionary. Of the 14 patients discharged restored, f were under care from 1 to 8 months, 3 from 3 to months, 1 from e to V months, and 1 for 2 v years. Since the construction of this asylum, 163H patients have been treated. The officers of the instltutlou for the present vear are as follows: Clerk of th Contributors, William Bettle.

For some days past a "strike" has been in progress amongst the men employed in tbo brickyards in the south western portion of the city, and Lieutenant Henderson has deemed it necessary to detail a number of ofllccrs to attend the locality and pre vent any disturbance. Last night a couple of the ollicers were informed by some of the men ;not on tne Btriuej employed by is. j. Gilles pie, Twenty-fifth and. Rcca streets, that a couple or auspicious characters caa oeen seen to enter the stable ou tho premises and after a few minutes leave it. A search was at once insti tuted and amongst the bay was found a lot of conce, sugar, teas, candies, soap, bread, butter, eggs, brooms, scrubbing-brushes, and, in fact, enough material to stock a email grocery, to gether with two shot-guns. The officers removed the property ana men set a watcu upon tue place. In a short time the chaps returned nd w ere taken into custody. Alderman Dallas gave them a bearing and committed them to await a further investigation, 'ihey gave their names as Mike Mahony and John McHcnry. Any person having lost goods similar to the above are re quested to call at the station-house. Brutes! A bipedal specimen of the brute creation named William Mahony, who resides at Foils of Schuylkill, Twenty-first ward, on Thurs day displayed his superabundant courage by thrashing his wife. The cowardly wretch was arrested and taken before Alderman Dean, who held him in $400 bail to answer. Another "loafer" named James Loguc, residing No. 531 Marriott street, has been committed to prison by Alderman Lutz on a similar charge. This latter abortive specimen oi numanity is aged thirty-eight years, and Is married to a woman seventeen years his senior, whom he has made support him for several years back. The poor woman makes a pittance now and then at washing, all of which the "brute" spends for rum. LMui midnight returning nome semi intoxicated, he demauded of her the earnings of the day. She hnd but just returned from West l'LiiaaeiPhia alter performing a naru oays work, and desired to retain the money for food. Ibis exasperated the brute.and he assaulted and beat her unmercifully, and threatened to take her life. Her screams attracted an officer, and the cowardly fellow was arrested. Storb Robbery The clock and fancy goods establishment of G. 8. Lovell, No. b27 Market street, was entered last night, as is supposed by youthful thieves, the drawers of the counting room broken open and ransacked, and six dol lars' worth ot postage stamps ana a aress coat belonging to a member of the firm stolen. An attempt was made on tho fireproof safe, but it resisted tho efforts of the thieves to open it. An entrance waB effected into the store through a window in the secoud story, which was reached by climbing up the awning-posts in tront of the establishment on Market street. After reaching the second stary, two stout doars were forced to gain accesB 10 ine nrsi uoor, auu notwith standing the noise that must necessarily have been made by the thieves, tht private watchman of the block and the regular policeman on patrol passed the store in blissful Ignorance of any thing wrong occurring within. A light Is kept burning in it all night, and the whole of the in terior ia visible frru the front. The attempted robbery is therefore quite daring one. The ' Elefbikt Yesterday, along Darby road, travelled a circus, attached to which was an elephant. The huge animal was adorned with an immense red cover, and as ho roamed along cuused fear and consternation amongst the "equines" and "bolvnes" that be met. John H. Joues, the celebrated butcher ef the Twenty fourth Ward, happened to bo driving along, when his horse, catching sight of the animal, dashed madly off, and finally brought up at a toll-house, which was upset by the sudden shock. As a matter of course, the wagon was smashed into a thousand pieces, and John, who weighs about 300 pounds, was thrown violently to the ground, from which he rebounded only to fall gain. Mr. Jones was badly cut and bruised : tho elephant passed on unhurt. Theft or A Boat. Some eight or ten days ago a couple of "wharf rats" stole a boat from Almond street dock. Since then the officers have been on the lookout for them, and yester day they were arrested and takeu before Alder man Moore, who committed them to prison. They gave their names at Jereukjah Butter and Jauef Harvey. Tin Mortality or Tim City. The nnmber of ilecths In the city for tho week ending at noon to-day was 844, being an increase of 10 over those of last week, and an increase of 56 vcr the corresponding period of last yew. 2C,'J were born In the United States; V0 were foreigners; 23 wore people of color, and 9 were from the conntry. Of this number 47 died of consumption of the lungs; 13 of con vulsions; 46 of scarlet fever; 24 of inflammation of the lungs; 2a of debility; 13 of disease of the heart; 14 of old age; 4 fl marasmus; and 4 of relapsing fever.

Jacob tirycer, accompa nied by four other "roughs," yesterday entered a baguio on St.John street, below Noble, known as the Reno Iiouut. After imbibing freely they refused to pay for the liquor, when a row origi nated, and for a time chairs, tables, glasses, and bottles flew thick and fast. Grycer during the melee attacked one f the female inmates of the place and beat her rather severely. The hubbub attracted somt of the Seventh district officers, who arrested Grycer and his companions and marched them before Alderman Toland,whoheld held Grycer In t800 bail to answer and the others to keep the peace. Assault and Battery. John Glcndennlng and William A. Allen have been held in $500 bail each by Alderman Stearne, to answer the charge of assault and battery. It appears that Glendenning, who is a manufacturer at Frank ford, has of late met with losses, and his pro perty has been seized by the Sheriff. Ou Thurs day last Glendenning, in company with Allen, visited the place, and a dispute arising between them and the Sheriff's officer In charge, they assaulted and beat bias; hence the above charge. Abolished. His Honor Mayor Fox has issued an order directing the special officers of the various districts to hereafter report to their respective lieutenants, Instead of Chief Kelley, and directing also that they shall wear the uni form similar to that worn by ordinary police men. This virtually abolishes the "special offi cer" system. Profanity. Joseph Inghram, a resident of the Twenty-seventh ward, while indulging in the use of profane language yesterday, was re monstrated with by a Christian gentlemen, to whom ho replied In terms still more profane. The gentleman then called an officer, and had Joseph taken before Alderman Luugren, who fined him for his profanity. An Overcoat. John Speckler yesterday en tered a counting-house on Delaware avenue, near Poplar street, and stole therefrom a fine spring overcoat, lie was pursued and captured, and Alderman Burns held him in $500 ball to answer. Heavy Theft. Alderman Eggleston has beld in t500 bail an individual named William Blackburn to answer for the theft of a lot of clothes-props from a yard near Girard avenue and Day street Corner Loukgerr. The police of the First district yesterday arrested three corner loungers at Twenty-first and South streets. Six were also arrested by the ollicers of the Ninth dis trict. R U E T.
