The gallant Eighth Illinois Cavalry—that noble
Land of heroes who, under the leadership of Farns
worth, made their names a terror on thehanksof
Ihe Rappahannock and Rapidan; whose glorious
achievements will furnish volumes when the his
tory of this wicked rebellion win be written up
returned home yesterday, after a week's tedious
journey, for a month's furlough, in which they win
recruit and reorganize, as nearly all have signified
tbelx intention of re-cnllsting.
AH remember the splendid appearance and mar
tial bearing of this regiment, as it marched along
ihc streets in October, 1861, tbe admiration and
delight of the citizens of Chicago. But alas I how
Jew of those gallant men are among those whose
return wc chronicle today. Scarcely one-halt,
The rest have nobly given np their lives on the al
tar of their country—some from disease, and oth
ers from the fatal messenger, which, as it went
whistling through the air, gave Us victim no warn
ing note. Although many of them ** sleep their
last deep" on thehanksof those Virginia streams,
which have been the silent witnesses of many a
sanguinary fight, without any stone to mark their
last resting place, still their names will live forever
green in the minds and hearts of their countrymen,
even among countless generations yet unborn.
•The record of this regiment is a glorious one, and
every member of it is a Wellington—the hero of a
hundred battles. With determined courage they
have fought ** like brave men long and well,' 1 und,
although sometimes being opposed to overwhelm
ing forces, have never once beat an Inglorious re
treat.
nnr.Avrr.iTloy or TUB SEGDtENT,
The regiment was raised in September, 1801, and
encamped at fit. Charles, filling up its ranks to the
in about five weeks. The movement to
recruit was originated by John F. Farnsworth,
(now Brigadier General,) who was electcdits Colo
nel. The regiment struck tcntßOnFrlday,october
31, having been full as to men and horses more
•than a week, but waited vainly for saddle equip
ments. A detachment of 180 men and COO horses
marched through Chicago on Friday, and tbe same
number on Saturday. On the succeeding Monday
the main body of the regiment, consisting of 840
men, arrived in Chicago via the Galena Union
roifi, and marched through the streets to tbe Pitts
burgh A Fort Wayne depot, taking train there
for Washington. Captain Webb, United States
Quartermaster here, escorted the regiment through
the city, accompanied by Colonel Farnsworth;

On arriving at ■Washington, this regiment was
ordered to General Sumner's command, nnder
which it remained that winter, and in the spring
Shared with him all the glories and losses of the
ueven days' fighting on the Chlckahominy, and
with the rest of the army retreated to Harrison's
Xandlng. From hero tbc regiment covered the re
treat to Torktown, and thence was ordered to Al
exandria. During the last fightat Bull Don it cross
ed the river nnder command of General Pleasan
ton, and did considerable skirmishing. After tbe
Battle the regiment crossed over into Maryland,
and engaged the rebels In continual cavalry bat
tles, where It was designated by the General-in-
Chief. In a general order, as having “won Its spurs."
Finally the rebels were driven to South Mountain,
where they seized possession of the pass. Some
Federal Infantry came np tbc next day, and com
menced the battle of South Mountain, after which
the rebels evacuated the pass. The cavalry
followed them up, and a severe fight took place,
in which the rebels were defeated with a loss of
S3 killed, (whom they left on the field,) 200 pris
oners and S cannon, while the Eighth's loss was
one VUled and fifteen wounded. From here
tbe regiment moved to Antietam and found the
rebels posted on tbe river. In company with Gen.
Pleasanton's brigade. It engaged the enemy, and
assisted in obtaining that glorious victory. After
this battle, tbc regiment was continually sklrmlsn
ing, scouting and making raids, following up tbc
rebels under General Stuart, with a forced march
of seventy-two miles in twenty-two hoars. When
the army of the Potomac again began its advance, :
tbc Sth Illinois was found in-its usual position—
the front—where it stayed until the army arrived
at Warrenton. It was then ordered to tbc rear,
where it remained till after the battle of
Fredericksburg,. at which great battle it
was present hut not engaged Daring
the winter this regiment was again at Us old work,
skirmishing and otherwise annoying the
rebel*. In the opening of tbe campaign, it took a
part in Stoncman'a raid* Shortly afterwards tbe
buttle ofCh&nccllor*viDe took place. After the bat
tle the Bth moved up and found the enemy strong
ly posted at Beverly's ford Here, with the other
regiments of Buford's Dlveion and some infantry.
It engaged the rebels, but was forced to retreat
owing to overwhelming numbers, It retreated
.across tbc river where it remained till the army
Began to more to Ccntrcvilie, under command of
General Hooker. Shortly after tbe 6th regiment
went to Aides Pass, over Loudon Valley, where it
came up with Smart’s cavalry. A sharp and spirit
ed fight was tbe result of this meeting, after
which tbe rebels fell back during the
sight. Tbc Sth pursued and came up with the
♦‘playbacks’’at Ashby Gap In Blue Hldge moun
tains* Here the enemy was engaged and after a
hotly contested fight, was forced to Call back in
confceion through the gap. Tbe next more was
across the Potomac, at Bowlin's Ferry, and thence
to Gettysburg, where it participated on the first
di y in tbc glorious victory won by Meade at that
piece. On the nest morning it moved to West
minster, the base of supplies. During the fight on
the first day the regiment was badly cut up. On
the eve of tbe fourth of July, it moved through
South Mountain, and attacked the trains of the
rebels. This was continued for several days, now
attacking the rebs here, now there. It was in one
of these attacks at'Williamsport, that Major W.
H. Mcdill was unfortunately shot, from tbe effects :
of which he expired a few days after.
The regiment followed np the rebels to
Falling Waters, where in company with Buford
andKilkpatrick's cavalry division. It engaged the
rebels. This resulted in defeat to tbe “gray
hacks " who lost 2,5 0 men taken prisoners, in elud
ing General Pettigrew. This regiment again
crossed the Potomcc, and at Ashby's Gap had a
slight skirmish with the enemy. The next move
brought it to the Rappahannock Station on the Or
ange and Alexandria Railroad, then crossed the
river, and had a severe fight at Brandy Station, In
which the rebels were driven 10 miles, to their In
fantry. It fell back again to the main army, hut
still kept pickets acroes the river. When Meade
ro-croesed the Rappahannock the Bth again lead
the advoncc as far as tbe Bapidan,whcre it did con
siderable skirmishing.
It remained on picket duty until Meade's army
fed) back to Ccntreville. The Bth fought oil day
long while falling hack from the Bapidan to the
Bcppabannock. The division to which this regl"
ment was attached took charge of the wagon train
thirty miles in length—by way of Brentrille. It
was attacked by the rebels, and a severe fight en
sued at Bristow Station. The second corps, un
der Gen. Warren, came up and attacked the rebels,
who were obliged to fish back, and the wagon train
was brought off to Fairfax in safety. The regi
ment then went tathe front, took the advance, and
went to Bilden ruz Warrenton. It lay there about
a week when the army advanced to Rappahannock
Station, where Sedgwick and French were advanc
ing. Tbc 6th moved to the right near Sulphur
Springs, coming on the rebels' right <»■«* where
It bad a ecverc fight with a division of infantry
xicarßectorvUle. The realment was badly cut up,
but did not fall back. The rebels retreated, and
the £th moved to Culpepper, where it has since re
mained on picket duty.
This regiment left Culpepper. on Monday

Tuesday, where they remained waiting for trans
portation till Thursday night, when they took the
■cars for Pittsburg, where they arrived on Saturday
Afternoon. After waiting here some few boon, they
look the train lor this city, and arrived here yes
tealay morning about 0 o'clock. After their ar
rival, the ladle* got together and prepared a sump
tuous dinner for the boys In the lower Bryan Hail
While dinner was being prepared, the boys were
invited to witness a rehearsal of the Philharmonic
orchestra in the upper hall. Hither they repaired
and cpjoycd with evident satisfaction the musical
treat, although no donbt the thoughts of many
reverted to the substantial treat which was bom"
prepared below. About IS o'clock* tho word was
given that dinner was ready, and some two hon
ored aat down to a sumptuous repast. After doing
the honors to the comestibles, the boys sang the
Battle Cry of Freedom and gave three rousing
cheers and a tiger for President Bryan and the la
thes. This compliment was returned by giving
throe checra for the bth Illinois cavalry, after
which the bovs volunteered “John Brown "
The Colonel then Informed the men that they

We are indchtea to Lieut. Calrcr. of Co. C, for
the following record of the Injories inflicted upon
the enemy in the numerous fights the “big Aboli
tion ” regiment has had with the rebels during the
two and a half years it has been in the service. The
flgnres are based on the best information the offi
cers could obtain after each action or raid
No. of rebels ki11ed...'....
No, of rebels wounded...
No. of Bebels captured...
Total loss inflicted.
Tbe above is the result of more than eighty en
gagements, forays and scouting expeditions. To
inflict this damage, cost the 6th Illinois nearly 700
men, who fell in hattlc or were lost to the regi
ment by disease.
The most desperate encounters In which the reg
iment was engaged, were Boonsboro, Shaipsburg,
Beverly Ford, Cppcrville, Gettysburg, first day,
Williamsport aud Falling Waters. It was present
and took part in tbe seven days battles on the
Chickahominy, and the first ma* on our side that
fell at Gaines' Mill, the first of those battles, was
Captain R, M. Booker, of Co. H. At the close of
of them Colonel Gamble, of Chicago, was
dangerously wounded, but finally recovered. At
Beverly Ford MAjor Clark was mortally wounded,
and Major Forsyth of Chicago, and CapL Hynes of
Chicago, slightly wounded. At Gettysburg CapL
Farnsworth, promoted to Brigadier General, felt
riddled with rebel bullets. At Williamsport Major
Medill, of Chicago, was mortally wounded while
leading a charge of his regiment.
This regiment has been like a flying sword,
loniingeveiy way; sever quiet, always on the
start, never taught napping, ever sleeping with
one eye open, it has never been taken by sur
prise, has lost bnt few prisoners, and with two ex
ceptions It has always inflicted greater damage on
tbe enemy than itself received.
It has captured in fair fight seven pieces of artil
lery. It has taken from the rebels 3,001 horses and
males and contrabands. And we agree with our
JcvfT'dl neighbor, that we 44 doubt ii the history of
the world can show such a successful two years'
campaign by any regiment of soldiers ever organ
ized. A hundred such regiments would have beg
gared tbe Southern Confederacy, and robbed it of
he cannon, its population, its niggers and its
horses, while one ol its troopers would long ago
have been chasing Jell, Davis through the swamps
of Texas, certain to catch him in the long run."
The regimen: is not exactly a Chicago regiment,
bnt a great number of its oHi cere bail from Chicago
and some of themeu.while all were recruited from
the country surrounding this city. Colonel Farns
worth, though residing at SL Charles, was inti
mately identified with Chicago, having been our
Representative in Congress for :six years. Lieut.
Colonel, now Colonel Gamble, is from Chicago, so
is First Major Beveridge, now Colonel of the 17tb
regiment. w.H.iledilhwho entered the regiment as
Senior Captain and died as Second Major while
leading a charge in pursuit of Lee's flying army,
near Frederick, was from Chicago, we can also
lay claim to Geo. Forsyth, originally Lieutenant,
now Second Majot, Major Waite, Senior Captain
J. D. Bines, Lieutenants Rucker and Wing and
Adjutant Gamble. Elon Farnsworth, who left
Chicago as a Captain in this regiment, was promo
ted to a Brigadier Generalship and was killed in a
few days afterwards at Gettysburg.
After being furloughed to-day, the boys will re
pair to their homes in the various counties from
which they enlisted. Wives, fathers, sisters,broth
ers and lovers, wifi have a day of rejoicing, when
tbe well-known footstep is beard at tbe door. All
will cetrerly rush to welcome tbe returned volun
teer, whose free is bronzed and weatherbeaten
fronm exposure. He ismet in the ball by an anx
ious party who gather round and almost smother
him with kisses. Bis hands are shaken so much
that they already ache, and followed by all he
walks into the parlor. Here he takes Us old scat
at the fire place, and the youthful members of the
family will draw near, and tbe youngest mounted
on his knee, will play with bis brass buttons and
sword belt. The aged father drawing close; and
the mother whose hair is already turning gray,
will listen with wonder and admiration at the va
rious adventures of tfieir bod, and a tear win he
seen furrowing down tbe mother's cheek, as she
inwardly thanks God, that her boy has been per
mitted to live, and return and receive her blessing
ere she departs for another worid. The blue-eyed,
rosy-cheekcd girl—the affianced wife win greet
him with kisses and blushes. The vows of love
and eternal fidelity will be renewed, and aQ will
rejoice with unalloyed happiness. This, however,
will prove of abort duration: tbe 44 soldier laddie''
has sworn hie allegiance to his country, and eager
to rescue her from Southern assassins, he pre
pares to rejoin bis regiment. The last kiss is im
printed, the last good-bye Is said, and the brave
volunteer ■r*tn rejoins his regiment' at St.
Charles.
Tbe fame orbis regiment has become as extend
ed as the 44 wide, wine world," and many will now
be anxious to join it, in order to participate in its
lustre. The reputation of such a regiment is a
great inducement for volunteers. In addition to the
Jiresent largebonntv,audio addition the fact of
oming an old regiment that has seen service and
understands the whole minutiae of war, will no
doubt influence a large number. Now is the op
portunity for all, who wish to join tbe army, to en
icra 44 crack” regiment, one whose honor has
uev*r been tarnished, and whose stony flag has
never grown dim. . ,
Recruiting will at once commence, and the re
(nuts as last as mustered will rendezvous at SL
Charles,—the home of its old commander General
Farnsworth.
A SOLDIER’S REST.
A More la the Bight Direction,
VETERA* BEGIMEVTS EVTESTAIXED.
As most of our citizens know, and as the ladies
of the Soldiers' Home have reason to know
from experience, depleted regiments of war-worn
soldiers are almost daQy passing through the city,
on their way home, (having re-enlisted as veteran
volunteers,) to be rc-organizcd and filled up to tbe
maximum number, when thev will return to the
battle-field. New recruits, in squads and compa
nies, from all parts of the Northwest, are dally
passing through the city to join regiment* in the
field. These men are generally transported by
contract, and, from a scarcity of passenger cars,
are too often crowded into freight cars, as we are
informed, “like so many cattle," compelled to
stand np, or sit or lie upon tbe fioor. They arrive
here hungry, cold and tired, and some regiments
have returned through here who have not had a
warm meal for several days—subsisting upon what
ever they can buy on the way, from small shops
and eating-houses, which they store away in their
haversacks.
The Soldiers' Home has been the only place
where these men could hope to obtain food or
rest, and no hotel in the city tyis been as densely
crowded during the past few weeks as the Soldiers*
Home. The table has been set all boors of tbe
dayand night, tbe floors covered with extra cots,
and every available niche taken up, for the accom
modation, of these noble men, who deserve all we
can bestow upon them. On more than one occa
sion, when regiments have been expected to ar
rive, ample preparations have been made for their
entertainment, provisions procured, tables set,
immense boilers of coffee kept smoking hot, for
hours, and the ladies, after waiting all night in
some Insf disappointed by some mishap or
irregularity of the train, have hden compelled
to return home without having the pleasure
of entertaining the men at all—they passing has
tily through without stopping—the officers not be
ing aware that any provision had been made for
them.
On Saturday last, the 5 d Hllnols were expected
to arrive on their way home (Eane county.) Tbe
President of the Soldier's Home tendered the la
dies the use of Lower Bryan Hail, where they
spread for tbe hoys a bounteous collation; the ta
bles were kept writing mi nearly midnight, when
*a dispatch was received that owing to some deten
tion oc tbe road, they would not arrive till some
time Sunday. The gallant boys, 801 in number,
arrived about noon on Sunday and satisfied their
hunger, which was almost ravenous from tbe long
detention.
A few hours liter, as soon is the necessity ar
rangements could be rude, the 14th Wisconsin,
ntimbering Bxo, arrived, andjwerc entertained in a
manner very satisfactory to the soldiers. Tester*
day forenoon the Bth Illinois cavalry arrived, and
were received and entertained by the same ladles.
One of the officers said they " had had no place to
sit down, nor anything to eat for many long and
tedlons hours, and wanted both food and rest,”
both of which were provided by the officers of tbc
Soldier's Home—as far as possible.
We mention these facts to impress upon the pub
lic and the owners of buildings the importance of
promptly answering the advertisement of Capt. J.
A. Potter. D. Q. hL, in this days's issue. Tae
ladies are ready and willing to provide the soldiers
with a warm meal upon their return from the war
—it is a duty the citizens owe these war-worn vet
erans and a hospitality that is extended them by
other dfcies, and certainly Chicago will not bo be
hind others. Soldiers who arrive here hungry,
after travelling from IS to SO hoars without food,
should sot be required to balid fires, collect their
rations and cook their own food. The city should.
and we believe willgisdly give them a reception in
the shape of a warm meal. Already provided, for
them to sit down to when they arrive,
without any delay. . But where shall they
find shelter and rest, daring their stay in
thecity. This want the “ Soldiers’Beat” will sup
ply. We havcnodohht theClty Council will adopt
some measures for the proper reception and enter
tainment of regiments returning from the war.
Capt. Potter has taken measures’ to provide for
them hereafter, during their stay, as soon as the
Soldiers' Best can be established, which will de
pend upon the promptness with which persons
who have suitable buildings to rent respond to
Capt..Potter 1 a call for proposals. Let there be no
delay. It is an important matter, and the ** Sol
diers' Beet" should be promptly established. The
attention of owners of large buildings is directed
to the advertisement in another column.

by Sylvester Lino, and deposited by Mr. Had as
collateral, upon condition that S6OO was bid for the
note. It was stated that the parties were insol
vent, and that their paper bad been already sold at
ten cents on the dollar; Aid. Holden and others
thought it was the best that could be done.
Ala. Tltsworth would rather lose the whole debt
than to compromise lor five cents on tbc dollar.
Aid. Comlskey moved to amend, by authorizing
Ihecjty Attorney to fileahill In Chancery for tbe sale
of tbc note, on condition that $503 be secured as a
first bid by some responsible party. Carried, and
tbc subject was referred to the Committee on Fi
nance.
Aid. Holden inquired why those notes had not
been presented since June, It 61; be'wished tbe
Corporation Counsel to explain.
Mr. Ayer explained that It was only within a very
recent time that the parties to the large note lima
lived in this Stale; when they came to reside in
the State they were insolvent and be had no in
structions.
Aid. Hahn offered the following:
lit it orderly That the Board of Police Commis
sioners be instructed to report at tbe next meet
ing of the Council tbe cause or excuse, if any
they have, why they did not build a proper and
comfortable pest-house, as was ordered by the
Council some eight months ago.
Aid. Hahn explained that there were many more
cases of email pox in the city than could be pro
vided for at the Pest House, tbe accommodations
of which were manifestly insufficient. Be had
seen the clothes of the patients need alter they
came out Just as before, without proper cleaning;
he wanted the best method adopted for avoiding
the spread of tbe contagion.
The Mayor, as a member of the Board of Police,
said that there was no money; tbe Commissioners
bad hoped that there would not be such a great
amount of small pox in tbe city this winter, but It
was here and must be met. There was no money
to build It with.
The Comptroller stated that an estimate was sub*
united last year. The city bad contrived to par
all the hills every month, and in consequence had
been obliged to borrow §20,000 to pay the Police,
and a greater amount to the Board of Education.
Still they had managed to get along without out
side aidj bat there was no money to spare for such
a purpose.
The order passed.

mate for raising North Market Hall io grade and

that was manifestly insufficient; the Board made
no recommendation, bat merely reported. Referred
to the Committee on Public Buildings.
The Board of Public Works reported on the
Evanston Railroad Ordinance, and present for
examination a drawing of the proposed bridge at
Lasalle street, with the north and south approach
es. It Is practicable to build the bridge with as
good approaches as the contemplated one on State
street. As a portion of the cost ofitwilf result
from the necessity of bridging the tracks of the G.
& C. U. E. R., it would seem proper that this Com
pany pay a share of the coat. They trust that a
bridge will not be allowed on Lasalle street with
the approaches on a level of the tracks of the above
Bsilroad, as dangers must result from having the
approach on such level. Referred to Committee

TUX BBUK3Z AT STATE BTBEBT.
Aid. Woodman called no the ordinance relating
to thobrid.-e over the nver at State street, and
granting to the No th Chicago Railway Company
to liy tracks on Wolcott street, so as to connect
with the Sooth Division Railway; ho understood
that the North Bide Company bad already sub
scribed SS,(XO conditionally, on the permission
being granted; he naked for the passage of the
ordinance. . .
Aid. Talcott did not want any ordinance passed
that did not oblige the Companies to repave the
streets.
Aid. Woodman stated that the Company was
willing to pave North Clark street to a width of
sixteen feet as for as tbe sewer raos, where the
property owners are willing to do their share; bat
ho was willing to move to amend to the effect thst
tbe Companies shall nave the sixteen feet in width
It a double track, and eight feet In width, If a Slavic
track be laid, with such material as the Connell
shall direct.
Aid. Talcott thought that tbe Company ought to'
he compelled to pay somethin? towards keeping
tho bridge In order and its working expenses.
Aid. Tittsworth said that tbe ordinance should
not be passed unless all the restrictions were in
corporated into it.
Aid. Walsh said that ho would at least make It
inenmbent on the Company to use tho most ap
proved kind of rail, and also provide that the Com
pany shall forfeit all rights and privileges on -non
compliance with the order.
Ala. Woodman was willing to accept that amend
ment, hut be wanted tho ordinances passed in
some shape.
Aid. Sheridan asked that it bo laid over nndpab-
Ushed in Its amended form.
Aid..Tittsworth moved to lay tho matter over for
two weeks.
The ordinance as amended was then passed.
TUB EVANSTON BAILBOAD.
Aid. Walsh called up the Evanston Railroad or
dinance. He wanted to amend by making several
new provisions. He was in favor of tho construc
tion of tho road, bathe did not want to give to any
Company a vested right in any street, and throw
all power over those streets oat of the hands of the
city. His amendments were to the effect that tbe
Company be not only bound itself, bnt Its succes
sors and assigns; that the cars inside the city
limits shall bo operated by horse-power
only, and that they shall always keep on band a
sufficient number of cars for funeral purposes
which shall have priority over other traffic; also,
that tbe rails used shall ho tram-raOs having a
flange of four inches In width; also that tbe com
pany shaft keep so much In tbe width of tbo
streets In order, as is specified In the ordinance
concerning the city railways at present running;
also that the company shall keep one office in or
near the center of tho city ah office at which ap
plications can be made for tbe use of carriages for
mncral purposes, and that cars shall be furnished
at the point on the track nearest to the residence
from which the ftmeral train shall go; also that
certain penalties shall be levied on tbe companv
for tbe non-performance of the duties imposed, and
that their franchise shall be abrogated nnder cer
tain conditions.
Ala. Holden moved as an amendment that the
ordinance and tbe amendment bo referred to tho
Corporation Counsel, to report at the next meeting
of the Council as to the power of the city to grant
the desired tranchlse.
Aid. Bond said the original hill was submitted
to the Corporation Counsel when it was first sub
mitted. apd he thought the subject matter was get
ting mixed.
Aid. Tittsworth thought that the motion of Aid.
Holden did not meet the quettlon. ThoConose*
was tbe proper authority to settle tbo matter.
Aid. Walsh moved to lay the motion of Aid. Hol
den upon the table. Tbo motion was declared out
of order, because Aid. Holden had not yet yielded
the floor. Aid. Walsh renewed his motion, pend
ing which tbe corporation coonscl gave his opin
ion as to the right of the council to grant franchi
ses of this character—an opinion decidedly Pick
wickian and non-committal.
The motion of Aid. Walsh prevailed by a vote of
ayes SiLnocs 6.
Aid. Woodman moved that tho whole matter he
referred to tbe Corporation CounscJ and tho Rail
road Committee, and report at the next regular
meeting.
Aid. Comlekv desired the Council to understand
the matter. Efforts were being made by men in
the Council to defeat the ordinance, which he be
lieved to be of more advantage to the poor people
of Chicaeo than any other railroad project ever in
troduced into the Council.
Aid. Talcott was in favor of the ordinance, bnt
desired the matter to go to tbe Railroad Commit
tee that It might bo properly presented
Aid. Walsh said there was no difficulty In pars
ing the ordinance, and he hoped tbe matter would
he pressed to a conclusion at once.
Aid. Woodman offered to withdraw Ms motion
to commit to the Railroad Committee, and substi
tute tho Judiciary Committee.
Aid. Talcott explained his position upon the
railroad question.
Aid. Bolden repelled tho insinuation that the
Aldcimen who w ere opposed to the proposed ordi
nance were in league nib the lobby members.
Aid. Roberts was satisfied with the motion to
commit to the Judiciary Committee, and thought
It the best disposition that could be made of a vex
ed question.
Aid. Woodman offered alcttcr addressed to him
self; it was read by Aid. Roberts.
The discussion turned largely upon the subject
of tbe possible connection with the Michigan
Southern Railroad, and introduction of steam as a
motive power; Aid. Walsh insisting that bis
amendment to section 3 covered the whole ground.
Aid. Bond, on bchalt of the Committee, explained
that the Committee had done all In their power to
obviate objections urged, bnt sickness had pre
vented it from being thoroughly considered; when
the Committee had finished its tabors there would
belittle ground for objection. He wai satisfied
that the city had the power and the right to grant
those privileges to the Company, and the Compa
ny was willing to accept It: it was for others to
llripatctbe claim, if sominded.
The previous question was called by Aid. Tal
cott ; lost. The amendment to refer to the Com
mittee on Judiciary with the Corporation Council
was tabled.
The previous question was called. Aid Holden
wanted to know If the previous question was to be
but for the purpose of passing that bill to-night; If
so he denounced it as an ontngc upon the commu
nity. ✓
Aid. Roberts called for a division of the ques
tion.
Tho previous question was lost by a vote of 13
against 15.
Aid. Holden moved to adjourn. Carried; and
the council stood adjourned.
LAW INTELLIGENCE.
Hammond vs. Elein.
CASE OF BIAS IN IS BANK VS. LINK.
Becord of Cason In the Law Courts.
Circuit Court op Cook Courtt.— ln the
case ol David Hammond vs. Charles Klein, a de
fault bad been taken, judgment entered and exe
cution leased. A motion was yesterday made by
G arisen, counsel for the defence, to set aside tbo
default on the -following grounds: The defend
ant Is not well acquainted with the language, was
servedby Gustavos Fischer, deputy Sheriff, who
was aimed with two processes against him. One
of these was a writ from the Superior Court requir
ing hall in the sum of Are hundred dollars. The
other was a summons in the suit above
named from the Circuit Court. The former
of these processes he undertook to serve
as Deputy Sheriff, and the latter as an
elisor, appointed by the Coroner. The defendant’s
affidavit, to set aside the default, alleges bis im
perfect acquaintance with the English language,
and declares that at the time of service he was not
aware that the officer was serving or intending to
serve more than one process upon liim, and that
was the writ issued from the Superior Court. Be
sides the grounds furnished by tho affidavit, the
counsel for the defense also took the position that*
the service of tho summons by tbo Deputy Sheriff
was void, for the reason that the statute forbids a
Deputy sheriff to serve a writ In a case in which
h!s principal is a party.
Counsel urged that though be assumed to exe
cute this service not as Deputy Sheriff, but as
elisor, stilt that did not alter the oppnllcadoa of
the for the.very reason for providing for the
appointment of an elisor was to take the execu
tion of the writ In such cases out of tho hands of
tho Sheriff or his deputies.
Tho Court set aside the default. Judgment and
ca ea, and released the defendant from his impris
onment in the Oouuty Jail, in which be had been
since lost Saturday on said ca sa. Qopkins for
plaintiff; Garrison for defendant.
Superior Cccnr— Marine Bake vs. Jons
Lent.—For this case a motion for a new trial was
heard on Saturday last. Our readers will remem
ber this case, which has been noticed before in ear
columns, as one in which plaintiff claims a bal
ance of defendant on account of an over draft of
nearly two thousand two hundred dollars, while It
Is contended by defendant, on the other band,
that his deposits were in excess of the amount
drawn. Link claimed that ho had deposited sixty
tboceand dollars with tho bank on one
check, which he bad obtained on a loan
effected for him by Carver, and that this amount
was entered on the books of the bank in h!s favor,
and also on the pass-book of the defendant, and
that afterwards tne pass-book was left at the bank
to be written up and was temporarily lost, or, at
least, could not be found when asked for by defen
dant. A pass-book was produced by the bank on
the first tml, with the first leaves in it wholly cot
out, viz: those in which, as defendant claimed,
and as his clerk'Woodworth swore, tho credit was
originally contained. The pass-book then con
tained a credit, in favor of Link to tho
amount of fifty-four thousand dollars. Tho en
try of this credit was proved to be In tho
hand-writing of Carver, while defendant claimed
that the original entry was in the hand-writing of
another clerk in the Bank by the name of Hi chard
eon. On rids last trial the pass hook was not in
troduced in evidence.
Tbe Bank offered to show by their ledger that
tbe only deposit ever made by Link was one of
fifty-four thousand dollars, on the ninth day of
August, 1857. Neither Carver or Richardson were
introduced by the Bank as witnesses.
The theory of the defense was that Carver had
received tho deposit as Cashier of tbe Bank, hut,
being engaged in stock speculations at that time,
diverted Link's funds to nls own use, and happen
ing to lose, sought to make the amount up on
Link. The defense charged the mutilation of the
pass-book and entry of a false amount to Carver,
and claimed that the Bank was liable for his
wrongful acts. It was proved on tbe trial that Car
ver bad been a defaulter to the Bank for more than
four hundred thousand dollars. On this trial the
verdict was for the plaintiff, and a motion for a
new trial was refused; but the case will be taken
to the Supremo Court. Le Moyne for plaintiff;
Wlcdelt for defendant. _

CHINA AKD THE CHINESE.
At the North Presbyteritn Church last
Ercntns—hectare bjr Hew. W. Spear.
Rev. William Spear, long a missionary among
tbo Chinese In tfaclr own Empire, and since 1851
connected with tbo Mission among tho Chinese in
California, delivered a lecture lost evening at the
North Presbyterian Church, on Indiana street,
near Cass. The audience was not large, but the
Interest excited by tho vivid descriptions of life
among the Orientals was very considerable,'and
tho lecturer was listened to with marked attention
from the beginning to th e close of his remarks.'
Ho said there were several distinct races in China,
each withpeculiarities and idiosyncracies of a re
markable character. There were, the Mcontzas,
who came originally from Eormoh, and bear about
the same relation to the cultivated Chinaman that
the aborigines of onr own country do to the culti
vated white man. They live In wilder
nesses and subsist on fruits and roots and
wild beasts. Tho - Tartars are a race
who at different times have conquered Chi
na. Tho leading and dominant race in China,
are the Mogul' Tartar. Tbe Emperor isaHante r
Tartar. Besides these there are a few Jew:*, th
descendants of the Babylonian captives, and ana
lion of Mahomedans, a race remarkable in this
that they possess an alphabetic literature—all how
ever under the control of its dominant Tartar.
The Tankar, or boatpcoplo, were like yet In many
respects unlike the Tartars, and in some of their
idiosyncracies seen in diflerent people. They
speak the same language, but are the dredgers of
the nation, and retain In their bands the carrying
trade of tbe country. *
Tho coolies and working men among the Chi
nese wear little dress, usually nothing bat short,
wide pantaloons and a pair of sandals made of
Stalled straw or the nntanned hide of some animal.
.s wc advance in the stale of society, a great Im
provement is observable in tho style ana material
of dress. The mandarin dresses richly, with cap .
whose ball and tassel is indicative of his rank, ana
with rich silken garments heavily embroidered,
with designs indicating the order to which ho be
longs. Under hlagown Is suspended bis watch,
and small pockets wherein is deftly hidden tbe
material wealth of the mandarin. His pantaloons
are wide and covered to tbe knee with cotton stock
ings, and terminated with leather and paper shoes
constructed on philosophical principles.
Tbo dress ofa merchant is made of what wc call
grass cloth, and what they call “ Ilarpoe.” They
wear suspended from their necks heads of fra
grant sandal wood, and it is not unusual to see a
trader drive a short bargain and tell his prayers
upon his heads at one and tho same time.
When yon enter a merchant's house yon arc in
vited to drink tea with him. They place a few
leaves of block tea into a tiny cap ana cover It with
hot water until its fragrance is extract
ed, when it Is drank with great ceremony.
The Chinese say that tho foreign devils use “paint
ed” or green tea, covered with Prussian green.
Tea ranges from that which is sold for three or
fonr pounds for a cent, to that worth thirty dollars
a pound. The latter is used only by high govern
ment officials, and is rarely scon by loreignera.
It is apart of their system in their entertainments
to flatter their visitors, and it is expected that
strangers will abase themselves in return. On
account of this peculiarity it Is very difficult to
translate tbe Scriptures property. $
It is the height of ill-breeding to ask after the
wife of a Chinaman. He will tell you by hlsae
tione, if not by his words, that you are treading
upon forbidden ground—that it is none of your
business to interfere with his domestic concerns.
The dinner course is the reverse of the order
which obtains among Christians. Sweetmeats are
first distributed, and then comes soaps and hashes,
and the dinner is closed with rice, tho universal
article of diet among all classes. They do not for
get, as a mark of especial favor, to serve you with
a lender slice from a young dog, ora luscious mor
sel from the loin of a kitten.
Tbo Chinese are accustomed to drink
freely of a sort of whisky distilled from
rice, but they never became intoxicated. He did
not recollect during a long residence in China ever
to have seen an intoxicated Chinaman on tbe
streets. Their money consists of bronze coin,
circular in shape with a square bole in the centre,
each ouc of wmch is worth one twelfth of a cop
per cent. Tbe cost of living to foreigners is about
tbe same as In this country, but natives live much
cheaper. Besides the bronze coin they have silver
dollars brought there by foreign merchants, which,
bc-fote It will circulate, receives tho stamp of each
person through whoso bands It passes. Tbe ob
ject of lids custom is to provide against the circu
lation of counterfeit coin. Every man whose trade
mark Is placed upon it Is obliged. Hit proves coun
terfeit, to redeem It in the current cash, of the
country.
Tbe dress of the female differs of the
men. The shoes are exceedingly small, and tbe
feet arc cramped in early infancy to that extent
that when armed at years o! maturity, they meas
ure scarcely fonr inches in length. Diseases of the
feet are prevalent, and Instances are known where
feet have been so cruelly treated that amputation
Las been necessary. The custom, in tbo opinion
of the lecturer, originated in the excessive jealousy
of the women on tho part of the men.
The Chinese are exceedingly fond of card-play
ing and of theatrical exhibitions; lu the earlier
part of the day these tatter partake of a religious
cast, followed by comedies in tbo afternoon, and
juggling exhibitions in tho evening. Females of
low character ouly attend these exhibitions, and
sing for the entertainment of visitors. The melo
dy tbeyprodnee is like tbe screaming of a cat.
Tte Chinese smoke both tobacco and opium.
To ibis latter habit they are exceedingly addicted,
and Its effects on tho morale and physical well-be
ing of thepeople is most pernicious.
They are extremely polite, the common saluta
tion being on meeting any ot their equals, “ Good
morning, or “ Have yon eaten rice,’’ etc. They
ealnto the Bmperor or one of their idols by touch
ing the head to the ground nine times In succes
sion.
The marriage ceremony la performed by the
bride going to tbe house of the betrothed In her
sedan accompanied by her attendants, and bearing
abundant gilts. There is no covenant as with civ
ilized nations. The Chinese have no proper wife,
and as many concubines as they can well support,
whose children are all accounted the offspring of
the first or proper wife. This induces on alarm
ing degree of infanticide. Female children are of
ten strangled at their birth.
Slavery is a prominent feature of tho social con
dition of China. Slaves are not composed of per
sons of color, bnt aro men and women sold for
debt, and sometimes this slavery Is hereditary, bat
they *n> never subjected to tbe cruelties indicted
open negroes. Beggars are numerous, and much
deformed—often made so by their own acts. The
universal custom is to give a beggar a Chinese
coin; they pro persistent and remain till they re
ceive the cash. The common rale is that atran
§crs shall not be annoy ed by beggars, and to avoid
iem marriages axe frequently celebrated in the
sight.
Tho Chinese produce the finest qualities of
porcelain, and wc have reason to believe that the
Romans imported porcelain from China about fhe
first of the Christian era. -
Paper and printing were invented and in gen
eral nee In China a thousand years before they
were Invented by onr people. A Chinaman docs
cverythlrgln the opposite way from ourselves,
and tbclr contrarieties aro very amusing. Tho
lecturer gave an Interesting exhibition of Chinese
books. Their dictionaries contain from CO.'oo to
10,000 words, and their language consists of char
acters, of which each represents a word. They
have no alphabet. Hany of tbclr characters are
extremely bcantifnl In form as well as pronuncia
tion. When yon are able to read 3,000 characters •
yon can read any of tbclr common books, and very
few of tbclr best ecbolars arc able to remem
ber 10,OW» words, or characters. There is
much In the Chinese books which,
when translated Into English, would be ex
ceedingly valuable. The mans of tho Chinese are
gotten np In beautiful style, and are generally very
accurate. The merchants arc experts in counting,
and generally use a counting-board. In some of
the fine arts, they exhibit a considerable degree of
advancement, especially In the carving of wood
and ivory. Tbe lecturer produced a bait not more
than two Inches in diameter, contalnlning seven
concentric balls, one witldn the other.
The government of China is despotism—the
Emperor being the father of the country. Yellow
Is the Imperial color, and tho edicts are published
on yellow paper with crimson characters. The
Government Is, however, a mild form of deepo
. tlsm, and their form of government may be said to
be almost constitutional, so that a translation of
their laws,would show a degree of legal perfection
which would be a credit to a European govern
ment. Tho council is a democratic onmnlzatlon
of a vl'Jagc ruled with a rod of Iron. When they
put forth an edict tbe Emperor dare not overate it.
Their despotism is almost a pare democracy.
The second lecture will relate more particularly
to the superstitions of tbe.Cbineac, their religion
and emigration.
PROGRESS OF RECRUITING.
Bcmoval of Copt. Pomeroy’s Office—
Delay In tlie Payment of Bounties.
The people at large are but just becoming aware
of the fact that the bounties are continued, and
that the draft has been temporarily postponed, un
til tho lists can be perfected, and other more com
plete arrangements made. Recruiting will be eon
tlucd up to the Ist of March, the same as It was up
to the sth Inst., with the exception that a reduction
of $2.00 is made from the bounties and premiums
—the tnurinm amounts now paid being $303 and
S4OO.
Capt. C. C. Pomeroy has removed his office to
No. IP, McCormick’s Block, (third story,) which
will be first opened for business this morning.
Hereafter recruiting officers will take their new
candidates for examination to tho office of Captain
James, 132 South Clark street, where they will bo
examined by the Surgeon, between the hours of 10
and 12 a.m., and 2 and 4 p.m. After being accept
ed by the Surgeon, they will be brought (with the
Surgeon’s certificate) to Capt. Pomeroy’s office, as
above, where they will bo sworn In, and thence
taken to tho quarters at the Armory, where they
will receive their bounty and outfit, and where
they will he provided for, till enough have been
received to send forward to Springfield.
There were thirty-four men recruited yesterday,
and there would have. been some sixty .ready for
transportation to Springfield last evening, but tor
the apparenttardincss on ihepart of some of those
who nave to do with the payment of bounties.
Tbe fault docs not lie with the committee, but
with those whose business it is to famish tbe mus
ter rolls.
Small Pox.—Several instances have re
cenccntly come to the knowledge of the Health
officer in which coses oi small pox have been unre
ported so him. It sboold be known that parties
omitting to report are liable to a fine of SSO per
Section 31 of the New City Charter. Under this
role the attendant physician la rendered liable, and
if he should fail to do Ms duty, then any person
cognizant of the fact that small pox is in a certain
honse should report at once to the Health onicer
dn the south side of tbo Court Honse, In the base
ment, that means may bo taken to guard the pub
lic against infection.
Police Coubt. —This venerable institution
was very largely patronized yesterday, the Court
room being crowded with spectators at the morn
ing seance, and thirty-two offenders of greater or
'lesser grade were disposed of. Twenty-three of
these were arraigned on the charge of simple
drunk; from this It mnst not he Inferred that no
others were drunk in the city during Saturday
night and Sunday, bnt" slmply that so many per
sons were so much intoxicated as to he unable to
go home, and so unfortunate as to be in the street
while a police officer was passing. The following
larger cases were thus disposed of.
A Vagrant— l Oliver Phillips was found lying nro
mlsconsly and obnoxiously around Uhlich’s Hotel
—sß, and 60 days in BridewelL
Drunken Desertere— William Sprague, a deserter
from the 12th 111. cavalry, and william Wilson,
bearing a similar relation to Waterman's Battery,
were lonnd in a low den on Weils street, very
drunk, and rather disorderly—sent to quarters.
Meek QJf.rrr—Sdhn Keller procured a star of tho
genuine pattern, and passed himself off as a police
officer. He was arrested on Milwaukee avenue,
but as it appeared that he was rather harmless,
wishing only to blow on borrowed honors, he was
let off with $25 and coals. «
DesperateAssault,— MichaelWalllnwlth hlswifo
Margaret. Gerald Harrington, and Dan. Mcßlaln,
were indicted Ibr assault with intent, &c., on Mr.
and Mrs. Black, residents of the West division.
The principal difficulty was between Michael and
Mrs. Kack, the latter having been struck with a
fork and severely injured. Michael was bound
over In SSOO to appear at the Recorder’s Coort; tho
others were let off with small fines.
Wtyfcifcarinu.—JosephLay abused his wife and
paid therefor sv6. _ __ _ .
McClellan's Head in Chancery.— Emma. Wood,
the keeper of McClellan's headquarters on Clark
street with inmates Mary Wilson, Mary Jane
Smith, and Rmw* Wheeler, were charged with hav
ing inveigled a soldier Into their classic retreat,
made him drank, drugged him, and then robbed
him of SIBO in money. A medical man testified
(bat the soldier was dragged ao heavily that he
would have died had not strong remedial measures
been resorted to. A search of the crib bad result
ed in the discovery of a lot of boras currency, sev
en or eight books with sums la them varying from
$5 to SBS, and several cavalry uniforms. Tnere la
no doubt that many other poor fellows have there
bees taken in and done lor. The keeper was lined
£0: the inmates $25 each.
athustcizcnts.
Pnmußarosio Concbbt,— Tho fourth concert
of tbe series of the Philharmonic Society, was giv
en at Bryan Hall, last evening, to the largest and
most brilliant audience of the season. The pro
gramme was one of the best ever offered for the
appreciation of a Chicago audience, bat the au
dience were as cold and Indifferent as usual, and
we think more. too. The Symphony in B major
was exquisitely delicious and beautiful, especially
the first two movements—the-first one; in particu
lar, reminding you of the soft, airy, weird, bird
like strains In Midsummer Night's Dreams. Tbe
orchestra—which, by the bye, was fuller than we
recollect to have seen it before—did full justice to
every piece assigned them. The fantasia on
Themes from Gounod's “Faust,” brought promi
nently before the audience a new instrument, just
■ introduced Into the orchestra, which seems to us a
combination of the clarionet, oboe and bassoon.
Its tones are grand and rich, and the andlence
seemed delighted with tho stranger—we could not
learn Its came. Mrs. Eloss displayed a skill
and genius In her performance on the piano, which
has rarely been reached, and, we think, never
excelled by female hands. If she produces less
wonderful effects in her manipulation of tho In
strument than Gottechalk, we are ready to accord
to her tbe development of more beautiful, inspir
ing and sympathetic tones, which are, utter all,
the best evidences of genius. She Is an artiatc-of
whom our Chicago people have reason tobeproud,
and we hope to hear her. before home audiences
very often. Miss Sells showed the some artistic
evccution In her part of the programme that has
heretofore rendered her a favorite. She seemed,
however, in bad voice, and the selections were not
such as to produce a favorable impression upon
the judgment of those who do not understand her
merits as an artist. She has, and can, do much
better than she did last evening.
At the close of the piece next to tbo last, the
snobs and snobesses commenced retiring from the
hall, as usual, to the deep annoyance of the orches
tra and those who preferred to remain. To tell these
unmanncrcdpeoplo of the utter disgust which their
conduct excited among the respectable portion of
the audience, we fear would be but to increase
their aptitude for such performances. We have
had occasion to speak of these things before, hut
without producing a reform. We believe they are
beyond hope. .
B'l be Oteba.— I Tho opera season will commence
on the £d of February, continuing twelve nights.
Grcn brings wlthhlm a splendid company, con
sisting ot Mad. Vera Lorinl, (not the Lorini .who
was Here lost season, but a'new singer in this
country, and a capital dramatic artist), Caatri, so
prano for tho lighter leading part; Steffonl, a mag
nificent tenor, and Lamaro, light tenor-; Morcnzi,
cooualto, who created such a sensation hero hut
winter: Morelli and Hartmann, baritones; Colet
tl.basoprofondo, and Barill. Signor Muzlo con
ducts. A fine chorus and orchestra accompanies
the troupe.' The season will commence with Lu
crbziaßobuia, and will embrace a fine repertoire
of operas. Wc have no doubt a handsome success
awaits the singing birds, so we advise our lady
frier da to get ont their lorgnettes and scarlet capes,
and tbe gentlemen to bo on tbe look oat for tho
sale of teats, the particulars of which will be found
In onr advertising columns.
Mb. Stone’s Leottbe.—Wo hope tho lectures of
Mr. A. L. Stone, which will be delivered at Bryaa
Hall on Thursday and Saturday evenings of this
week, will be well attended. Ur. Stone la engaged
in a patriotic duty, and should receive tho encour
agement of all who desire to understand thorough
ly the animus of this rebellion. Mr. Stone lived
nndcr tho Confederacy from its inauguration until
tbe capture of Vicksburg, arid Is, of coarse,famll!ar
with tie rotten thing.
RodtasoN & Howes’ Cibods.—The Circus was
crowded on Saturday and Monday evenings, to
witness the pageant of tho Field of the Cloth of
Gold, and the Drama of Bon Quixote. In these
pieces tho full strength of tbe company take part—
RohlnEon, Burrows, Aymar. Kelley, &c. This Is
the last week of the pageant, and all who wish to
see it will have to do so within the week.
Acaueht-of Hcsic.—This popular resort draws
a crowd every night, with numbers left out in the
cold. This is tho first week of the Ethiopian farce
of Peter Pipes, and tho Bull Ron Survivors, to
which will be added a largo number of popular
melodies, dances. Instrumental solos, Ac. •
Toe HAsquBUADB.—Tho masquerade ball, which
Is to take place on Wednesday night, at Bryan
Hall, Is the theme of discussion in the fashionable
circles. Its entire success is certainly secured.
Tiro question Is not Who will be there ? but Who
will not be there? Vaas & Dean’s Band Will Ihr
nigh the music, which rend&s it certain that there
will be no deficiency there. Ample refreshments
will bo supplied m the lower hall. We have heard,
many of the costnmes which are in preparation
described, and we can assure all that. In this re
spect, it will exceed anything ever seen In Chicago.
Tbe few remaining tickets unsold can be had at
the Tremont, Sherman or Briggs Houses.
Swedish Socxxtt Svea.—This Society will
give their eighth annual ball, at Bryan Hall, on
Friday evening next. Tho Society Svea is a
benevolent character among tho Swedes, and it
should receive the patronage of not only all of that
nationality, bat of liberal American born citizens.
There is no class. of immigrants to the United
States more worthy of tbe kindest consideration of
the American people than tbe Swedes, and we.
trust the coming boll will be fully attended.
HoViceeb’s Theathe.—ilies Charlotte Thomp
son will make her second appearance this evening
in tbe character ot Pauline, in Bnlwcr’s play of
the Lady of Lyons, the part of Claude Melnotteby
Hr. Evans, and Bcauscant by Hr. Rand. The
Lady of Lyons is one of tbe very best plays that
has been produced since the palmy days of tho
British dramatists. In stage effects It is particu
larly rich,'and if well played, is sure to touch the
sympathies of the audience. Without being able
to speak with confidence of the histrionic capacity
of Hiss Thompson—not having yet seen her—we
will say that she has achieved much success in the
character of Pauline, In other cities where she has
played it, taking as authority the criticisms of the
public press. Hiss Thompson’s engagement will
only continue for two weeks, as tbe legitimate
drama will have to give way on tbe 3d prox. to tho
diviner strains of Gnm’s birdlings.
Vabieiies.—Tony Pastor will continue to de
velop Ills eccentricities and sing his popular songs
during the present week, assisted by the other
members of the. company. There is no place of
amusement In the city which has more certain and
steadfast friends than the ” Varieties.”
Tub Washington Ska to,'q Park,—The balmy
weather has had no effect in softening tho ice at
the Washington. It was never in a better condi
tion. It will be open this afternoon and evening
to its patrons and all others who may come and
have tho necessary “ postage.” A bahd of music
will be on hand to enliven the scene.
' Concert at Enow.— I The Great Western Baud,
assisted by Hies Julia Ellsworth and Miss Qcorgio
Dean, of this city, gave a Concert at Elgin on Fri
day night last. The Elgin OasetU says there was
a slim attendance—tho price of tickets (fifty cents)
being more than Elgin audiences have been in the
habit of paying, and there being two or three
dances the same evening. It says the singing of
Vies Ellsworth was most excellent, and Mias
Bean’s performance on tho harp of the very first
order. Both ladies were encored every time. The
Gazette thinks that under more fhvorable circum
lances they would bo greeted with a crowded
bouse.
Theatrical, —James W Wallack, Davenport
and Mrs. Farren are playing tragedy at Ptko’s
Opera House, Cincinnati. The “King of the Com
mons,” which the Commercial pronounces “a
heavy, historical production, lacking smoothness
and literary finish, and not remarkable for original
or strongly drawn characters,” has been played
once or twice, the persons named above sustaining
the leading characters.
Portrait or Gen. Quart.— Antrobus’ life-like
portrait of Major General Grant la on exhibition
nt Heed’s Temple of Music, and will remain there
for a few days, for the benefit of the Soldiers'
Home. Everybody should go and see It, By so
doing they not oqly view a rare work of art, but
pot money in tho purse of a most excellent
charity.
Ladies’ Citt Mission.—The Ladles’ City
Mission acknowledge tho receipt of 80 dollars
from a friend of - Wabash Avenue M. £. Church,
and hope that others, both in tbo city and country
will follow this noble example. Clothing is par
ticularly heeded. In one house In the city nine
ddldren wore seen all fatherless or motherless,
without shoes or stockings, and in a most desti
tute condition.
Packages or boxes, tho receipt of which will be
promptly acknowledged, may be sent to Rev. H.
Whipple, in charge of Ladles 1 City Mission, Chi
cago, 18. By letter address F. O. Box 1,355. All
contributions will be faithfully distributed under
tbe direction of the Board of Managers.
A Good Henry How
land, A. Q. H., has been appointed blaster of
Transportation on the military railway between
Nashville and Chattanooga. CapL .H. Is an old
resident of Chicago, who entered the service as
regimental quartermaster at the beginning of the
war, and baa been faithful in the many onerous
and responsible duties devolving upon him, and
richly merits the promotion ho has recently re
ceived.
Killed.—Adjutant Chauncey Miller, of the
14th Illinois cavalry, was killed at Bain's Cross
roads, East Tennessee, in December. He was one
of the original 10th Illinois hoys, from Chicago,
> and was Adjutant of that regiment during its Mis

experiment deserves. The fair Is to be held, as it
has been projected, by the Fenian Brotherhood,
and the proceeds are to be devoted to their na

■Wisconsin. Pennsylvania, New York, and Maasal
chnsetls deputations have been appointed, and
several Indies from these States will be present to
preside over their respective departments. The

war ana weather worn standards to decorate the
balls engaged. We shall have Irish orators, poets,
and magicians to contribute to the general result,
and from the “old country.’ 1 Contributions of man
