The importance of having a good landing the Delaware front or on the Christiana, very ita mouth, is too plain to need explanation. Its value has been admitted for a long time, and the advantage whioh the oity would reap by hav ing a whaif, at whioh the various river lines could land, is apparent to all.

But to ascribe the quality of gran • leur to it, is to be in error. Let give it ita proper name — the "Masonic Opera House."
