Stabbiko—A Rowdy Assaelt.—Two
brothers, named Peter and Endrich [Anderson,
ware returning home from church on Sunday
evening when they were met by four half drunken
men who assaulted and struck them. The broth
ers took refuge in a house adjacent, where they
remained about half an hour and then proceeded
homeward. On the corner of Ontario and Frank-
Un streets they were overtaken by the hollies
■who Immediately recommenced the assault. The
brothers sow prepared to defend themselves, and
did «o with such good address that all four of the
assailing party were prostrate at one time. They
however recovered, and one of them, drawing a
knife, made a clean sweep around the neck of
Peter, inflicting awonnd of five and a half Inches

Captains Bellows. Rice and Wooster, and Lieut.

Board of Truds Booms Lust Evening-Stirring
Speeches by Adjutant General Fuller-*
Or* Brainard—Captain Pom*
troy, and Others,
The Eoard of Trade Booms were filled to their
utmost capacity last evening, where the loyal peo
ple of Chicago bad met to take counsel together—
to devise ways and means of Ailing up the quota of
this city and county. There was an earnestness
upon each man's countenance which showed that
bo bad sot come up to the meeting from mere idle
curiosity, but that bo was Interested in knowing
what had been done and what remains to be done,
to maintain the creditor the county.
The meeting was called to order by Col. John L.
Hancock, who stated the object of the meeting to
be to raise tho quota of Cook County without re
sorting to a draff.
AdJ. Gen. Fuller was then introduced by the
Chairman, and stated that be had been urged to
teUinthobriefbonrbe had to stay in the city
what be knew about the account between the Gen
eral Government and Cook comity, aa regards her
quota, end what can systematically be done during
tbe coming fifteen days to secure the filling up of
tbfrqsota. He answered the question so often
asked him, why be could not give tbe exact nom-
I Ksr enlisted from each comity in the State. The
muter colli bad not been returned, either to
Washington and Springfield—the old law and old
form did not anticipate the railing of troops by
thousands, and under that system, re*
creiting officer* had not time to mate out
and return lists as fkst as recruiting
He explained the different calls tcade for troops,
•and Ibenumbcrand term of service of each; and
stated the Government officers at Washing*
ton would hardly believe we bad raised all three,
▼care men. Instead of nine months men, and be
believed Congress would pass a law giving Illinois
proper credit for the men we hare sent 3 years In*
atead of those called for 9 months, i Cheers. The
calls made in 1861 and ISOS were based upon the
census of ISCO. la 16G3 the first call Is for 36,700
of 8 years men. This State owed the general en*
Tollmen t, on the last call, 27,930. Cook county has
enlisted, in 16C1,45C, in 1862, 2,761, and in 1863,
7,375, making a total of 14,872 of 3 years men.
There are assessed upon the first class enrollment,
145,100 men, upon this State.
•♦You oak,” said he, “what has Cook county
done? As mustering officers have not returned
lists. It is impossible to tell exactly. The muter*
ing-in roll does not state the place of residence at
{he time of the man's enlistment. The old lists
doubtless answered the purpose when made, out
are now not the thing wanted now. Gen*
eral F. had prepared a list two and a
half years ago, and had followed "the army with
them, and endeavored to leant all these fact. Ac.
cording to these lists. Cook county has furnished
10,477 men, as Gen. F. believes, which Is a higher
figure than has before been credited to the county.
(Chccrs.l Cook county is now called upon for 3.075
men to make up berouetafor the present, and
■what we ell believe win be the last eau. Ton have
S2£U from which to fill up your quota. Will you
do*t? fToices, ‘‘Yes.”] , , k
Gin. Fuller stated that ho would remark, (not
in on official capacitv, but his convictions as an
individual,) that if Cook county will raise 2,000
recruits by the Sth of January, there need be no
draft in the State, (cheers) He 1 earns that a dis
patch has Jut been received (from some question
able source) that there is a probability that tho
draff will be postponed. Tbereisnoauthorityfor
it, Thisreport is without a shadow oftrmh. Ton
may rely upon it the draft will come, if your quo
tha not filled. So do pot postpone your enlist*
ments, but come boldly up to the work, and not
wait for one another. Gov, Yates will not oak to
have it postponed—he says the quota can as well
be filled by the Sth ofJannary as three months
hcncc. Do you not think so, fellow citizens f (yes,
yes). Capt. C. C. Pomeroy has returned to tho
city to stay to work, and muster In men, and give
all the information wanted—in short, to take
charge of the recruiting in this city and county.
Gen. F. further stated that he and Capt. Pome
roy waited upon Bradlev (whom every one knows,
1 and rogues to their sorrow,) and laid their wants
before them. The result is, that the armory has
: been, within tho past few hour*. “ put in fighting
condition.” Capt. Pomeroy will have his head
quarters there, and will receive all the men re
united, and those accepted will then get their
bounty, their rintiiiwp, and foD equipments, and
will be tnrnlsbed with rations from the hour of
their enlistment Capt P. has systemlred the
bus nesa, so that it will go off like clock-work, and
new recruits will find npon application to the
armory, that the Government falmls all Its promis
es to the volunteers, and that the city arc acting in
rd faith. Every Recruiting officer is requested
report to Capt. Pomeroy, at the armory, at 10
o'clock this morning. ,
The Speaker stated that now every man is au
thorized to serve as a recruiting officer, ana will
receive & premium for procuring a recruit. Every
ynjiw is a recruiting officer. Let the work go for
ward rapidly, during the remaining fifteen days.
If Cook County makes up her quota, tqpro will bo
no draft in the State of Illinois I The work Is be
ing carried forward rigorously— It will not flag in
the country I So It now remains for the citizens
of Cook conntv to err whether they will stand
alone and submit to a draft or net. He has never
known a draft upon Cook county dishonored, and
trusts she wiß still maintain her former reputa
tion. Be concluded by expressing a hope—aye, a
firm belief, that Cook county would fill her quota,
and that the brave boys la the army, from this
eountr, who have been im every important battle
that has been fought during the war—the boys
that now call for help—that the recruits come to
their help volutarily, and without being driven at
tti* point of the bayonet. Be hoped that the men
would be enrolled, and If so. an exultant shout
would go tip from every city, village, and hamlet
in the state, on the 6th of January, that ” our quo*
tais foil, and there will be no draft I” [Cheers.]

Dr. Daniel Brainard was called for, and made
some very pertinent remarks, as to the change
that had taken place, with the Jeff, Davis organs
in the North, as well as with the leaders and Insti
gator* of the rebellion at the South. At first they
were fighting for their independence. They have
lost all hopes of ever gaining that—they could not
exist for any length of time, if their independence
was acknowledged by every country ou the globe.
They are so lettered, in that they have not the
natural or commercial fccOltiea for an independent
existence, and have lost all hopes of ever gaining
them bv war. Now they want the most favorable
terms of peace. Thiels seen in every movement
of the rebel officers—ln every movement or their
friends in Congress, and by every issue of rebel
(Northern) organs. This, we owe to our noble
boys In the field (cheers), 10 Gen. Grant (cheers),
in the army, and, in a great measure, to Gen. Ful
ler in this State. (Cheer*.)
Dr. B. aDodod to the order for the suppression
of a certain Northern newspaper for the utterance
of disloyal sentiments. He believed that order,
made in good faith and with the advice of the Gov
ernment, should not have been revoked without a
xdedge from that organ as to what its future
course should be. He suggested that Oen. Bum
tide has noticed with regret the influence still at
influence in Gen. Burnside’s withdrawal from the
army. The speaker suggested that the citizens
Invite Gen. Burnside to this city, to address them,
and at the same time to give ns a chance to show
our estimation of him as a man and as a general.
After Dr. Brainard's speech, Mr. Charles Ran*
dolph introdneed the following resolution, which
wne cmmimonely adopted: • _
Beroited. That this meeting Invite Major Gen.
Burnside to visit Chicago to address the citizens
on the necessities of the army, and to afford them
an opportunity to thank him for hie services to
our cccntiT. .

communicate such invitation to him by telegraph.

, TTarncr's Hall was filled last evening, the doors
bkng thrown open to the public. Peter Pagc,Esq„
was called to the chair, and in a short address, in*
treduced to the meeting Mr. lit C. Ballard.
The speaker recited an original poem, entitled
“The Conflict in the ■West.” This poem was writ
ten in the manner of 16M, during the excitement
consequent upon the I’residential campaign be
tween Fremont and Buchanan, and has for its sub
ject the wrongs of Kansas at the hands of the Bor
der Bnffiene and the subsequent victors of free
dom over slavery. The poem was cordially re
eelved, and that portion of it predicting for the
Union, on the extinction of slarory, a splendid
and glorious career waaenthnalasticaltyapplaudod.

The non. O. C. Bates, was then Introduced to
the audience and delivered aaeloquent and patri

which took Place njQto, and

who was responsible
for their untimely death? Va* It a foreign

Was It the desoendknt of the Montezuma*.
No, elr 1 They fell by the hands of men who

the end of it ? Will not the sound of the muffled
dnuo. the firing Of mixmlc guns, the one, two.
three, fonr flags draped la mourning, will not all
these awake the people to the necessity of filling
tm the shattered ranks of onr brarc armies,
if they cannot ■do it, an angel from
Leaven cannot do It. What la the cause of ail
this bloodshed? What hare the United States;
done to iho so-called Confederate Slates ? It is a
wellknownfact that the South have for lha last
thirty years held the reins ol rawer. The sneaker
then, with the most withering sarcasm, snowed
the characters of James K. Polk and Franklin
Pierce to the audience. He then read a short c~-
tract from a recent speech of Mr. Cobdeo. the
brightest statesman and the most nncomprorais
ing lover of America In England, delivered a short
time since at Manchester, in which be stated
that, "This is awarto extend and perpetuate
slavery, to make an empire having slavery for Its
Chief corner stone, and sot for its existence as
established in the early days of the republic."
“No " says Cobden," the North most prevail.
The South must succumb, because in this world
virtue and force are on one side, and vice and
weakness on the other."
The only pretext for this rebellion was the ex*
tens’on of slavery, hatched in that most villainous I
dtv of Charleston, which, eventually, will he
blotted ont of existence like Sodom and Gomor- {
rsb. Uis son was now at New Orleans, and he ;
hoped that bo would, erelong, be able to write j
home and say. ** Father, I sow stand where Char
leston stood. ... , , .
Vice and weakness go together, and now let ns
look at the position that these Southern slave
holders stand on. On the outset they asserted
that cotton, raised by poor frail women, was king;
hot cotton fs king no longer, as England, who was
the principal consumer, is now making such gigan
tic strides in the raising of this article in her col
onies. that she will, before Jan. Ist, 1665, be en
tirely Independent of the American product, Bnt
where is slavery now f Northern bayonets, In the
bands of onr prate Northern soldiers, have scat
tered it to the fonr winds of heaven. There Is ns
power in heaven or hell that can resuscitate it—no,
DC Tbeirnext weaknefla-waathe cry that they were
an agricultural people; they were perfectly Inde
pendent of the North; they were the chivalry of
the world, equal to tho united strength of five each
men as are raised in Vermont. Bot where Is their
agriculture now. Flour Is now selling so high In
pfchmond that it would take all a man is worth to
purchase a barrel. The Southern women who ex
pected to become duchesses and ride In gilt coach
es are now redneed to each abject poverty that
they axe compelled to come into Northern lines,
mounted on a long eared mule to beg a small mite
of salt. Where now are tho great commercial
cities? Where is Mobile, with radiahcssellmg at
*l5O apiece ? How Is Charleston ? Where are
now those fierce obstructions that were a terror to
our navy? The Almighty caused a dreadful storm
to arise, and wash away ihesciohßtrncnonß, open
ing up the way to the speedy extinction of this
nest of Treason. _ ~. i
Slavery has met with Its death warrant and the
war will never stop until every vestige ofits hid
eous head shall be wiped out of existence forever.
Their agriculture has proved a myth, their armies |
are decimated, theircurroncyis gone, and nothing
remains but the final dissolution of the whole fab
ric. The speaker then, la glowing sentences*
spoke ©four resources, our corn crops, our wooden
and Iren manufactures; the prosperity of tho agri
cultural aodmercantile interests; of Chicago, the
watchword of all lonil men, and tto
traitors: onr greenbacks, wnlch constitute tho
only currency that is acceptable to tbopeoplc, and
closed bla adrcaa with a beautiful description of
our country, when Freedom and union, one and
inseparable, shall bo rung forth upon the breeia
throughout the length and breadth of the land.
The Chairman then recited in a very eloquent
manner, a poem, descriptive of a scene In Tennes
see, —the emancipation of an aged slave by his
master, while on the eve of death.
The thanks of the meeting were then tendered to
Mr. H. C. Ballard for his beautiful poem, and to
Hon. O.C. Bates for his very eloquent and patri
otic address, after which it adjourned.

Aid. Comisky offered an amendment to the ordi

Chicago; the following arc its previsions:
Eec. l. The Conscription War Fund Committee
is hereby authorized to appoint a sub-committee
to examine and pass upon applications for bounty
money under the ordinance to which this Is an
amendment, and the Comptroller Is authorized
and directed to issue hi* warrants upon the certifi
cates of the Chairman of the Conscription War
Fund Committee. . . . ~ ,
See. 2. The benefits of the ordinance to which
this Is an amendment are hereby extended to per
sons resident of Chicago who were enlisted else
where, whether prior or subsequent to December
10th, 1863, ahull nave been subsequently mustered
in a* a part of the quota of Chicago under the pres
ent cult provided that proper application for the
bounty shall have been made prior to the first day
in this ordinance or the ordi
nance to which this is an amendment shall create
an obligation on the city to pay a bounty after the
ronds now. appropriated shall have been ex
See. 4. The decision of the Committee upon
each application shall be final and conclusive.
Aid. Titworth thought there was too much In
that making It an ordinance and not an amend
ment. Bcwasof.tho opinion that, the present
legislation wae snEdeat.
The Hayor staled that it was aimed so to sim
plify the course of proceedings as at present con
ducted under the ordinance, and to legalize action
heretofore had. «
Aid. Rlwrod thought that perhaps there was ll
]e"»Hty In the special meeting; he had not been
noUficd oCthe intention to hold a meeting of the
Council, hut bad only known of it by means of the
newspapers, and os reporters were amphibious an-.
imale, he bad doubts whether to believe It or no.
AW. Roberts explained that persons having
been induced to enlist upon seeing the reporter
the proceedings of the Council, it hod been thought
fuoper in the first section to provide that they
should receive the sum allowed them. The second
section Is intended to reduce the machinery of the
pcvment to allow a limited number of the comp
troller the necessary vouchers to enable him to
make payments under the ordinance.
Aid. Titsworth saw no objection to the ordi
nance, except in the amount of bounty.
The ordinance passed by ayes 21: nays, none.
Petitions Wens presented Irpm Scott, Ring & Co.
and A. H. Barney, asking for reduction in asaes*-
mexits. Referred to the Committee on Finance,
with power to act.
Aid. ScbaH offered an ordinance repealing the
ordinance heretofore passed, authorizing the re
paving of Randolph street, from State street to the
bridge, with the Nicholson pavement; also direct
ing the Board of Public Works to report an assess
ment for repaving so mnch of the street as lies up
to the railroad track.
The motion was discussed at length.
• The Mayor aald the tax is being collected, and to
nags this ordinance now would be an act of injus
tice to the property owners. The Question la dis
pute was whether the property holders shill repair
the roads between the tracks of the railroad com
pany, or whether the company shall be compelled
to do that for themselves.
Aid. Talcott supposed the object of this ordi
nance to be to cause the property holders to pave
to the tracks, and the railway companies can ho
foteed to keep in repair the street between the
tracks.' _
The ordinance passed.
The report of the City Comptroller, of receipts
and expenditures for November, ISS3, was received

than ten minutes, subject of course to the contin

Singular Scene in the Recorder’*
Yesterday the trial of the case of “The People
vt. John Williams, Mary Smith and Kate Jones#”
(each of the said defendants haring, perhaps, half
a dozen allcuct) commenced before Judge .Van
Boren. Our readers will remember the heary
ebop-Ufttng transactions in which these parties
are charged to bare been engaged, as surpassing
perhaps, In extent and diversity, anything of the
kind that had ever taken place in this city, Pre
liminary to the trial, soon after defendants with
their conned, (Messrs. Driscoll, of Chicago, and
O’Brien, of Peoria,) had appeared In Court, and
before the empanelling of the jury, a singular
scene occurred. Mr. Samuel Felker, a tolerably
well known member ol the Chicago Bar, addressed
the Court, saying that he had originally been en
gaged as attorney tor the defendants and bad sup
posed that young Mr. Van Boren, his Honor’s son,
would assist him at the trial—that later Mr. Dris
coll was, without his consent, introduced into the
case, and now another person (alluding to Mr.
O’Brien) whom he did not know at all, acting as
counsel for the accused and claiming a right to
participate in the trial: and under these circum
stances he asked the Court that he might he per
mitted to withdraw his appearance.
The Court seemed Just about assenting to the re
quest of Mr. Felker, when Mr. O'Brien arose and
said that be would inform the Court, as well as the
person who bad Just addressed it, that he was
there not merely to defend the prisoners at the
bar, but alse to and, if possible, pursue by
legal .prosecution, that person’s base breach of
trust and grossly unprofessional conduct. He then
went on to state that Mr. Felker had been intro
duced to the prisoners while they were at the office
of the Detective Police, by some of the habl'uu of
that office, as a lawyer who would assist them in
their defence; that they, under that impression,
made a frank and unreserved communication to'
him, of the circumstances connected with the
transactions that had caused their arrest, and that
he abused the confidence thus faithfully reposed in
him, by imparting all the knowledge got In this
way, as fast as he obtained it, to C. P. Bradley,' of
the Deective Police. That in short, pretending to
give tbemprofesfilonal assistance, he had acted to* i
wards themmerely as a spy of the detectives. Mr.-
O’Brien added further that ho bad obtained from I
them in confidence, the checks for
the trunks containing their goods, and
had given them to Bradley, and in this
way the tranks with their contents were procured
to be used in evidence against the defendants. He
had also, under various pretexts of benefits to be
derived to the defendants from so doing, obtained
from them advances jn money and property to the
amount of nearly one thousand dollars; Including,
among other things, a carriage and horses, a baits
lo robe, a splendid gold watch, and other articles,
which he bad Immediately converted into money.
1 besides about sixtv dollars in. cash; and for all
I this not only had the defendants received no pro-
I fcssional service from him, but, on the contrary,
! wherever be had pretended to appear for them, he
-had done everything he could for their injury. Thar
I he had, by hfsowu representations caused their
■ balUsoe raised from five hundred to twothou-t,
i sand dollars a piece*, and that at the Police Court.* ■;
where he nominally acted as their counsel, be had |
I assured Justice Miller that he believed that they j
Sfr.S’Brien hadfinlshod, the Court turned
to Mr. Felker and asked him If these represeuta- I
lions were true. The-latter replied that he would
neither admit nor deny them—that that was nor,
1 the proper time nor place to investigate them.
' The Judge replied in substance that ho was ;
shocked to bear a member of an honorable pro
fession, coolly say in open Court that he would
neither admit nor deny chargee of this description.'
Such language was entirely inconsistent with the I
innocence ofthe Attorney, as no Innocent person
would quietly rest for an instant • under accusa
tions ora character so grave and shocking.
The Judge expressed an intention to give Couu- i
selforthedcfencethe lamest liberty in ventila
ting the transactions thst had been alluded to, as
wen as, if tbe charges were sustained, to purge .
his Court of all officers gulUy of conduct bo cor- 1
runt and • scandalous. He also declared that he
would resign his seat unless he could prevent i
such corrupt conspiracies between the detectives
and Attorneys practicing In that Court, as had
teen described by Mr. O’Brien.
The jury having been empannclled, and the case,
‘tiledTor the prosecution, Mr. Driscoll opened to
the jury for the defense by recapitulating the
charges against Felker already made by Mr. O’Bri
en. with the addition of a conversation that took
place between himself and Felker, Just after the'
examination In tho Police Coon above alluded to; ■
Mr. Driscoll having appeared at that examination
as counsel for Mias Kato Jones, “Felker,” he said,
“followed him out after the examination was over,
and inquired of him whether he bad received any
pay. Onhis replying in tho negative, Felkerro
marked that they were evidently* professional
thieves, and that the best way, was to get all that
conld be got ont of them and let them go to b—l,”
, or words to that effect.
Mr. Driscoll went on to state, that even snpnos
' Ing all to he proved In behalf of the people, which
the prosecution alleged they could prove, tho jury
otilfwouldnot convict tho prisoners, because they
would not cenvict on evidence procured by means
so corrupt and scandalous as those which had been,
used against these defendants. They would not
crown such conspiracies with success.
Supejoob Coubt—Before Judge Gary: A ques
tion somewhat peculiar,arose on an appeal from the
County Court in the matter of probate of a will.
The name appended to tho will was that of J. H.’
Sullivan, and the validity of tho instrument was
being tried by a Jury. Mr, Ellis, in support of tho
affirmative, offered in evidence the will itself,
which was attested In tho following maimer:
Birectly at tho bottom of the disposing part of the
instrument, appeared the name of Patrick Hear*
nan, who signed as an attesting witness. Imme
diately under, but some two' inches below Keer
nan’s name, waa written tbe signature of the tes
tator, J. H. Sullivan, while still further down was
written the following certificate of authentication:.
State of Illinois, Cook County:
“I. William Allen, a Justice of the Pcsco la and
for tbe said county, in the State aforesaid, do here
by certify that Jeremiah W. Sullivan, personally
known to me as the same person whose name is
•subscribed to the annexed will, appeared before
me this day in person, and acknowledged that ho

free and voluntary act for tho uses and purposes
therein set forth. ... ......

“Wnxuut Allen, J. P.
U. F. Linder, Esq., who represented parlies in
opposition to the probate of the will, objected to
Its going to the jury in evidence, on the ground
that two witnesses ware essential to tbe legal val

Feeedmes’s Aid Commission.—An in
formal meeting of the Northwestern Freedmen’s
Aid Commission was held last evening, in tho lec
ture room of the Clark Street Methodist Church,
Rev. R. W. Patterson, D. D., presiding.
The meeting was opened with prayer by Her. Dr.
Burroughs. President of the University of Chi
cago, after which tho minutes of the last meeting
were read by the Secretary, Ecv. T. M, Eddy, D.D.,
and approved.
Bov. Prof. Fisk then read tho report of the Com
mittee appointed tonominatonlnoaddlUonal mem
bers of tho Commission. Tho following gentle
men were afterwards declared

Tho minutes of this and the previous media.,
were ordered to be engrossed on the permanent
records of the Commission; and • ,
The meeting then adjourned till next Monday
evening, when officers will be elected,
I This Society is a Union of tho Western Freed
| men’s Aid Society, of Cincinnati, and the North
western Freedman’s Aid Committee of the Amcri-
I can Missionary Society. Tho object In joining tho
J two is to promote a greatereffidcncy of operation.
Salaries op Teacheb9.—A meeting of the
principals of the various schools was bcl( i kst
evening, at which it was unanimously resolved to
petition tho Board of Edacatlon for an Increase of
salary. This is much needed, as owing to the
great advance in all the necessaries 'of life, In
these war times, U Is Impossible for tho teachers
to Uvfron their present salaries and do full Justice
to the cumbersome duties of their profession. The
education of the youth ol the country at the pres*
ent time is not a mere matter of dollars and
cents, bat one of the utmost Importance, and It
will prove much cheeper in the end to pay a jast
remuneration to the teachers for their services,
{haato employ Inferior talent *t any price.
-’MjvSmßa’fl litotubb.—Wo trust our citizens. (
willbe* 1 *!” that - 'Mr, Edmond Kirke gives,
bis lecture on “The Social sod Poliilcll Charactor
tcrlstlca of the Sonthem Whiles,'' at Mbtropou
tan Ball this evening. Mr. Klrkei although north,
emtorn, baa spent a-large portion of his Uf& in
the Southern States, In friendly intimacy with "the
people of that portion of our country. :He has
studied their characteristics with great care, and
being a man of mnch more than ordinary talent
and research, he can speak intelligently of what
he has seen. His knowledge facet confined to tho
ruling class—the slaveholders—but embraces tho
middling classes, the “poorwhito trash," and tho
negro. Those who have read his two popular
books—*‘Among the Pines," and “My Southern
Friends,*' have seen with what a masterly handhe
portrays the characteristics of the Southern peo
ple, including the rations castes which we have
named. Mr. Kirk© has been lecturing before many
of the lading institutions of the West during the
present season, and his effort Is commended very
generally bythe Western press.
Yottno Man's Association Lecxtmsa.—The
next Iq:ture of the course before the Young Men's
Association is announced for Saturday evening
next, the S6tb inst., and tho announcement will •
awaken general interest. The lecturer will be
Rev. Wa. C. Richards, A.M., of Providence, It.
L, whose brilliant success in the scientific lecture
field, has been very great. His present theme
will not come under the scientific bead, however,
bnt will be purely literary- Tom Hood, the prince
of wits and humorists, wQI be the delightful theme
of Us discourse. The subject requires the most
subtle and sklllftil handling, and we fed quite sure
that it will hhve It In the hands of Dr. Richards.
He Is a poet him self, far above ordinary capacity.
The audience that listens to Dr, Richards will be
sorely gratified.
Classical Rxamkqs.— Mr. Bandmann, the tal
ented and popular Anglo-German actor, will read
from Hamlet, Merchant of Venice, and Schiller’s
song of tho Bell, before the students of tho Illi
nois School of Trade, and a select number
of invited guests, this evening. The read
ing of Schiller’s song of the Bell will be ac
companied with orchestral interapercea, This will
boons of the most popular and refined entertain
ments of the season. Mr. Dyhrenfurth, the prin
cipal of this school. Is entitled to much credit fbr
introducing this class of refined and elevating en
tertainment to his students.
Gottecbalk and Bbionolt.— Tho adrertisc-
mcnt for two grand combination performances,
embracing the talent of four leading artiste, will
be found In oor columns to-day. They will take
place on Monday and Tuesday evenings of next
week. Goltschalk, Brignoll and Cordler, are fa
miliar faces, and we all know and appreciate their
almost unrivalled merit; but Carlo Patti la new to
ns. He la a male scion of “the Patti” family, and
the family lose nothing of musical reputation by
the connection. What Adeline and Carlotta arc
in vocalization, Is Carlo with his violin. The sale
of seats will commence on Thursday morning, at
Higgins’ Music store, 117 Randolph street.
Old Folks Coxckbt.— Bryan Hall was filled to
Its utmost capacity last evening, to greet Father
Setup with his Old Folks. It speaks well for the
taste of Chicago people that entertainments of
real merit aro always thus rewarded by liberal pat
ronage. The old familiar faces ore still with this
troupe, with the addition of new ones. Mr. Hay
ward made bis debut, and established himself as a
favoiito at once. He has a very sweet-tone dvolce,
of much compass and parity. Bis facial express
ions aro unpleasant, and mar the beauty of bis
enunciation. He should practice before a mirror,
appreciate their absurdity, and cast them off. Fa
ther Kemp kept the audience In a roar of laughter
by his quaint humor and pithy sayings. They re
peat their concert—or rather, they give another
concert—this evening, when, we hope, they will
receive as kindly greeting as last evening. Old
Folks' concerts aro an established Institution; at
least those of Father Kemp’s will take that rank.
Mew Opera House.— Arlington, Kelly & Co.,
managers of the talented company of Ethiopian min
atrels, who hare been playing at Metropolitan Hall,
harebnllt, and opened to thepnbliclaat evening, a
new opera bouse, on the south side of Washington
street, between Clark and Dearborn. The house
will hold about one thousand people, and every
setting and standtogplace was occupied. We will
not attempt to describe It In detail, but will sim
ply say, that It is as pleasant and nattle u little
place os we have seen west of New York, and just
the thing In every respect for the uses to which it
Is to he put. The managers have J evidently con
quered the popular fancy, and we predict a great
nm to the new Ethiopian Opera House.
SslrtHo Parks.—Wo thought there waa a crowd
at Washington Skating Pond on Saturday night,
but compwed with the numbers present last even
ing, it was hardly entitled to that designation. I
This time there trod a crowd-say four of live thoas- I
and souls, and double that number of skates. Of
course everybody was filled with mirth and bappl-1
ness, and consequently everybody laughed and I
shouted. The Washington has touched the popu- 1
lar heart, and will be a sort of Mecca toward |
which, nightly, (during the moon-shining nights) I
crowds of happy pilgrims will turn their faces.
Great Is the Washington Skating Pond, or wo aro
no prophets.
MoVicxzß’aTirßATM. —To-night Cabas revives J
the popular drama of the French Spy, in which
she has gained more admiration than in any other j
part in which she has appeared. We concede her
without a rival In this character, now on the stage.
Notwithstanding the attractions offered nightly, in
almost every public hall in the city, Cabas has her
share of patronage and admiration. We predict a I
crowd to greet her to-night.
Robinson & Howe’s Cibcus.—The holidays
were Inaugurated lost night at the Champion Cir
ca*, and will continue until the opening of the
New Year. La Petite Angelo, who la really a won

Ur. Wagner, the Union candidate for Coroner.
Holiday Gifts.—Christmas and New Years arc I
fast approaching, and the subject of suitable glTla |
for both old and young, are exercising the minds |
of ell to an unusual degree. Oar Juvenile readers
are at present anticipating with a good deal of
anxiety, the filling of their stockings by the old
man whoso store house never becomes empty
of its inexhaustible stores of nick-nacks
while children of an older growth ore wondering
what proofs of filial regard their olive branches
will shower on them. All who want an endless
variety to select from, will patronize the establish
ment of Tallmadgc & Co., periodical dealers, eas
tern House Place, next door to the Post Office,
where maybe found everything In the shape of
children’s toys, albums, and all other kinds of
