THEIR FIRST FAIR. The First Annual Exhibition of the Chicago Fair Asso- ciation. Everything in Connection with the -VciCbining Event Affords a Most ''v ; ' Promising Outlook. Ansy Scenes at the Chicago Driving Park—lite Xew Buildings, Stalls, Pens, Etc. Ample Accommodations for Every Feature —The Steeple-Chase “Euns” and “ Jumps.” Exlensixe Arrangements for Feeding and Sleeping tie Crowds—A Brilliant Program. The Chicago Driving Park, at which very convenient and desirable location will be held next week the first annual exhibition of the Chicago Fair Association, was visited yesterday by a Tuibcxe reporter with a view to ascertaining what material improvements had been and were to be made on tlie grounds to insure tlie success of tlie grand enterprise, so far, at least, as the accommodation of ex hibitors and visiters might be concerned. The reporter was accompanied on ids tour of in spection by Mr. .1. M. Dunlap, who, a* Super intendent of grounds and a veteran in that line of work, having been connected with various , successful fair associations in different cities, directed attention to the most prominent of the conveniences and attractions offered to tlie public in the present instance. From ail that was noticed, it may be reasonably predicted Unit one week from tomorrow will see Chicago urovided ■with a fair ground which is second to none in the country, either in point ot general ac commodation or management, to say nothing of the very flattering inducements offered in the way of S.VJ.OOO worth of premiums. Tlie p.qrk was found to be in possession of nearly 200 carpenters and a proportionately large force of teamsters and general laborers. The vast area was . DOTTED WITIIIST.IGIIT-LOOKIXG XEW ISOLD- ixos, either completed or in course of completion, while tiie continual limn and rattle kept up by the busv workmen with saw and hammer added to "the very live appearance of the scene. Tiie work is already so far advanced that everything wifi doubtless be in readiness a dav or two before the opening. Stalls and sheds for tiie keeping of horses and cattle have been provided to the num ber of nearly SOO. many of them double. J lie cattle-sheds, which are SxPl in size, extend from the main entrance on Madison street west along tiie line of the high board twice to Fortieth street- and thence, south to the Fortieth street gate. They number 2->2 and eaeli one will accommodate a cow and ealt or two cattle- . , , ~ The horse stalls —all box—extend fiomlhe Fortieth street g-ate south to tiie fence, then »ast to the fence, and then north some ,00 ’eet Besides this there are the " California stables,” parallel with the west fence just south of the Fortieth street rate and the ■•sections” directly across the common drive- The total number of stalls is WO. Ibe space aiioted to each stallion is SxS. to mare and eolt the same, and also the same to a horses entered in tiie speed ling, while all the other stalls are double. Just south of tiie California stables are six gauge nun.mXGs , let apart for the display ot bogs and sheep. The buildings are about 24x120, and. alto gether. have tat pens.

Hie base to be twenty feet square, and Hie tower to be sixty feet high. The main exposition hall is north of the grand stand, and is a very commodious structure, 802x10$, capable of holding a vast Wirt miscellaneous exhibit, and arranged with a view to perfect convenience for visitors and exhibitors. , ■ , . in the space between me grand stand and the exposition hall, Furst, Bradley & Co. and the Schuttler Wagon Works Company will Jointly erect for their own use a building Laving a frontage of 200 feet on the track, md a depth of about 100 feet. Directly •across the drive toward the cattle sheds. the Stndebaker Bros. Manufactur ing Company, oLSouth Bend, Ind., will erect i building, 00x20, for the exhibition of ve alcles and AGPJCULTUIJAL IMPLEMENTS. Twenty-five feet north of the exposition Du i I ding, A. B. Barnes & Co. will erect a Dulldlng, 40xl0S, for the display of agricult ural implements. For the general display of agricultural implements, there is a space north of the Barnes location, 4OOxSO, and an other north of the Stndebaker ground, 4*ox 20. In front nf the main entrance to the e:c --• position building there will be a Fairbanks settle, established by the association. All specimens of poultry for competition ire to be exhibited in attractive coops or •ages furnishers by the exhibitors, and lo cated in sheds Anveniently near the farm, dairy, and household products, and honey and bees. Fruits, llowers, and vegetables, and household manufactures and woman s work will be given very extensive space in the exposition building. It is hoped and ex pected that the ladies will send out a large display of fine needle and fancy work. . One of the grandest attractions at the fair will be TUE STEEPLE-CHASES. The 41 run ” is two miles and a half long, and is located in the “centre field ?J —inside the regular race track. It has two stone-wall “ jumps ” three feet ami nine inches high, three planx jumps of the same and a water ditch Jump fifteen feet wide, twenty feet long, and eighteen inches deep. The finish is on the main track, squarely in front of and close to the grand-stand. The cost of fixing the “run” for these exciting contests was about §7OO, and it is pronounced to be the best steeple-chase in the country. There will also be in the centre field two large areas —one on the north side and one on the south—staked off for the accommoda tion of all classes of vehicles. This depart ment will be under the direction of compe tent horsemen, and will be conducted on a system of checks, which relieve visitors hav ing carriages or wagons* of a vast amount oi worry and inconvenience. If there is one thing that the management has devoted particular care and attention to It 1b with reference to affording visitors ‘ every possible comfort Uiat could be thought of at a fair. In tho first place might be men tioned the superior arrangements made for the relief of tub bunchy ani> Timisrv. South of the club-house there will be two dining-halls, 50x12 each, for the convenience of the general throng. The public will also have the benefit of two additional dining halls and lunch-counters, 22x45 each, in the centre Held. Then there is to be a lunch room, 70x12. in each of the four angles formed by the L’sot the exposition building, - and a line of lunch-counters and refreshmenl stnnds in the rear of the grand stand and un derneath it. But the biggest addition m this line is a new two-story and basement build ing, 00x30, the first fioor of which is elegantly finished and fitted up ns a dining-room, while the upper fioor is set apart for lodgers, more than 100 stock-exhibitors having already secured accommodations here. There will also be about 100 cots put in the upper Star - et the grand-stand structure. If all this does not afford sufficient eating and sleeip ing .‘ accommodations for the crowd, the management will make still further addi tions. Sore than all that it has been specific ally provided that none of the proprietors of the Jnncli-slands, refreshment-counters, or dining-halls will be allowed to charge in ex less of ordinary DOWN-TOWN PKICES. Another great feature in this line will be the establishment of huge and innumerable tanks of free ice-walcf at different parts of the ground. As Superintendent Dunlap put lt“A man cannot walk twenty-live feet with -- but running against a tank of ice-water and a tin cup.” No one will be allowed to sell water on the grounds, and if they were they could not realize a nickel. Every- night, too, the drives and paths are to he thoroughly saturated with water, which will do away with the dnst nuisance absolutely. For gen eral convenience, also, there has been cou- structed a plank-walk m front of club house and graiid stand, extendiiif, fiom the buildings to the race-track, and liken ise a mountain of free seats south of house. The grounds will be illuminated at night with headlights. , Among other attractive and features on the grounds will be lue niiu uxe and other PJIKSS BUILDINGS AXD TEXTS, this line of improvements to comnmnco 1-a leet north of the Fortieth street gate, just back of the club-house. ...,, , nnaf All of the above includes onlj the most prominent features of the’. hair. Aotlnn„ has been said regarding minor attractions and objects of interest and «‘udj\ bvi> class of amusement desiring representation will be allowed space, for there are aeres it to spare, and the host of people who will daily visit the grounds can find ample oppor tunities for diversion and eMijiTtaiiiiniMit. The racetrack andstmuls are.the [mist in the world, and every day during the 1 air there can be seen a number ot first class trotting or running races, lor the program ot the speed rings is an exceptionally fine, one. the purses ranging from catw up to otw. Some of tlie fastest trotting and running horses in the country will be entered. On Wednesday will occur the great twentj mile equestrienne contest between Miss Lin ina Jewett, of Minnesota, and Miss Belle Conk, of California, for a purse ot .jkoOO. There will be two trotting races and one running race Monday; two running races ami a steeple-chase Tuesday; a pacing and a trotting race Wednesday, in addition to the Jewott-Cook contest; two running races and a trotting race Thursdaj*, and also a trotting race for a special purse of §2,500, yet to be announced; two trotting races and a steeple chase Friday; two trotting races baturday, and another ouaxd twenty-mile equestiuexxe cox- test between tlie winner of the Wednesday’s contest and Miss Williams, the champion lady rider «f England, for a purse of S2AOO. The program ot exhibitions in the show rings—of horses and cattle—extends over the entire.week. „ • . . . Probably tlie greatest of tlie special at tractions named will be the equestrienne contests, which, as can be imagined, will oe characterized by the most fascinating excite ment and the wildest enthusiasm; ana also the steeple-chases, with their daring jumps, brilliant bursts of speed, tumbles, and hair breadth escapes. The special purse ot 82,000,- already re ferred to, will be. offered to the greattrotters, and tlie management state that every effort will be made to secure tlie appearance of Maud b. anil St. Julian. Fair promises and deserves to be an overwhelming success. NOTES. As an indication ot the immense attend ance expecled at the fair, the Secretary lias had nearly 400.00 U tickets printed.

Tiie Chicago Homeopathic College?* New and Klcgaiil Building. The new building of the'Chicago Homeo pathic College, at tho corner of Wood and York streets, is rapidly approaching comple tion, and is one that merits particular notice as adding greatly to the architectural beauty of the city, besides representing a most suc cessful and popular medical institution. It was erected this season, the foundation be ing laid last May, to accommodate the stead ily increasing classes at the old College, cor ner of Michigan avenue and Van Buren street, and is said to be the largest college building devoted to the teaching of homeop athy in the country. It is situated directly opposit the Cook County Hospital, which is conceded to be one of the best equipped hospitals in the country, and which furnishes in its clinics, surgical 'operations, and autopsies unsurpassed ad vantages to students. It is in the same square' as the Kush Medical College, the Woman’s College, and the Chicago Training School forMisses,and is inclose proximity to tho Foundlings* Home. The structure is four stories high, not including a deep base ment, and the style of architecture is gen erally gothic, modified by a mansard roof. It is built of pressed brick, with stone trim mings, and presents an exceedingly attractive and* imposing appearance. The frontage on Wood street, where the main entrance is located, is seventy-two feet, and runs back a distance of seventy-eight, feet on York street, where there is a side entrance. Kolb fronts are provided with broad flag stone pavements, and the main entrance is approached by massive stone steps. TUB INTERIOIS FINISH is plain, but extremely neat, and the con veniences which the whole possesses as a college could scarcely be excelled. On the first llnor is a clinical lecture-room, provided* with 100 opera chairs with desk attachments, a large waiting-room, a medicine-room, resi dent physician’s office, free dispensary, and six consultation-rooms. On the sec ond floor are two large cloak-rooms, two lecture-rooms, 34x42, provided with 150 opera chairs, arranged in amphitheatre style, a chemical laboratory 20x30, fitted up with tables to accommodate thirty-six students in practical work at one time, and an anatomical museum *20x32. On the tnird floor, in the centre, Is located the clinical amphitheatre, (Vlx4‘2, running through the fourth floor to the circnlSir sky light, eighteen feet in diameter. The amphi theatre is provided with 500 opera-chairs, and its entire arrangement is the very acme of perfection and convenience. On the same floor is found the microscopical laboratory, iSxSU, and likewise a museum 40x40, ami eight rooms to accommodate patients after being subjected to clinical operations— clinical wards. On the fourth floor, surrounding the upper part of the amphitheatre, are two large dissecting rooms, 20x40, provided with skylight and excellent facilities for the diameter ot the work for which the rooms are designed, and a number of small rooms which can be used as private offices by the Professors. The basement is to be occupied by the janitor, heating apparatus, ice-house—for the storage of cadavers—and so forth. There are also a number of small utility rooms on the differ ent floors not mentioned. The cost of the building was, or will be, $40,000. It will be opened Sept. 23 for the preliminary term, and Oct, 3 for the regular winter term. The officers of the college are: President, J. S. Mitchell, M. IX; Vice-President, K. M. Tookcr, M.

Chicago *Seven Games Ahead, Buffalo Second, and Provi dence Third. The Champions Successful at Cleveland Yesterday by a Score ot 4: to 2. * Detroit Beaten by Buffalo, Worcester by Boston, and Troy by Providence. Tin; criAMi’ioxsnrp. Tlie past week’s play lias worked some changes in the standing-of the different clubs. Buffalo’s unexpected success against both Cleveland and Detroit has enabled it to remain a strong second and to reduce Chica go’s lead to seven games; while Providence lias stepped squarely into third place, and Detroit is a tie with Boston for fourth. Buf falo’s lead ot three games tor sec ond place will in all probability prove conclusive. though that club lias yet to meet Chicago three games, and should lose at least two of them, and also must encounter Troy, which lias beaten the Bisous seven out of the nine games so far played. So tlie question ot second place is not vet settled, except so far as tlie apparent certainty that it rests between Buffalo and Providence. There is hardly a possibility that Chicago, can be beaten for first place, as, by winning eight out ot their six teen games yet to play, the cham pions will reach a total of fifty-three games won, and in order to tie this Buffalo must win fifteen out of seventeen; while, should Chicago win eleven out of sixteen— one at Cleveland, two at Buffalo, two at Troy, two at Worcester, two at Boston, and two at Providence—it would be an impossi bility for any club to make a tie for first place. So tar the Chicagos have won a majority in four of tlie seven series, and can probably bo beaten in but one series—that with Cleve land—which they can tie by winning next Tuesday’s gone. On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of this week tlie champions play at Buffalo, and then proceed to Bosuin, Provi dence. Trov, and Worcester in the order named. Tlie situation at tlie close of yester day’s play was as follows: CLUBS. boston linti'iilo Chicago..;. Cleveland.. Detroit 3‘rovlUeuce. Troy Worcester.. 4 Games lost. CHICAGO VS. CLEVKLAXn, Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. Cleveland, 0., Sept. X— Today’s panic was a tiresome one on account of the lack of interest on the part of the players. So gross did this become that towards the latter part of the game Anson was compelled to wake his men up. The champions won the con test by their superior lidding. The work of the Clevelands in the field was very shabby, but they wielded the slick with equal ellect to that of the visitors. Corcoran pildied splendidly, and Xolan did scarcely less well. Anson won the toss, and Dunlap stepped up to the plate. lie made a safe hit to right. Phillips then hit to Burns, and he with Quest and Anson cltectcd a double play. Clapp reached first on balls, and was thrown out stealing second. For Chicago Gore made a safe hit, and Dalrymplo followed with another one, which Shatter fumbled enough to allow Gore to reach think Brad ley then made a cureless toss of the ball to wards the pitcher, and Dalrymple stole sec ond. ' Kelly was thrown out at first, Gore scored, and Dalrymple reached third on An son’s out at first, Dalryipple made a daring ■steal home while Phillips had hold of the ball. Corcoran ended the inning by Hying out in the second inning Tavior died at first, Shatter got a base on balls, and Kelly s miss of Nolan’s grimier allowed him to reach second. Gh*< *ock went out on a foul tip. Bradley first on balls, and Bemsen struck ontl-eavlng the bases full. Burns reached first ioi Glasscock’s fumble, but he got no further, as the next three bat ters popped up easy Hies. Each side made one single in the next inning. In the fourth inning Uie Clevelands were retired with two men on bases. Anson scored in this inning on ins hit—which Ilemsen let go by him, Anson reaching third—and Burns 1 single. Neither side did anything noteworthy until the seventh inning, when Flint scored on bis hit, a steal to second. Quest’s grounder, and Unnlaii’s muffed thrown hail, in the eighth inning Phillips and Clapp made three-basers. and Nolan a single. In the ninth inning Bradley led off with a bit, but Bemsen and Dunlap were put out. though manv thought the latter beat the ball to first. Phillips and Clapp were given bases on balls, and tiie bases were again full. Taylor hit Hie ball squarely, bat it went straight to Gore’s wailing hands, and the game was over.

Special Dlcpatch to The Chicago Tribune. Boston, Mass., Sept 3.— Tlie Worcesters, after holding a. lead in eight innings here today, were vanquished by the Bostons in a most surprising manner. The weather was • raw and chilly, and the game was witnessed by only about 400 people. For the Worces ters in the first inning Bickcrson led off with a safe hit over second base, and scored on a sacrifice hit by Stovey to right, and a safe hit by Richmond. In the third inning Beasley tied the score for Boston, hitting safe for first, and getting around on a “give-away” hit by Barnes and Morrill’s single. In the seventh inning the Worcesters started in with the idea of making things decidedly warm. Creaiher hit safe, but was' shut out by Ilornuug to Snyder in attemuting to score on, Busliong’s long and safe lilt to left. TlieV latter scored on errors of Sutton’s and Rich mond’s sacrifice. In the ninth inning the Worcesters were in a hurry at the bat and went out in one, two, three order. Then came the picnic. Crowley led off safely over second and got second on Lip Pike’s fumble of tlie ball. Horn ting follow lilt to centre, and, to the snrpri again fumbled the ball. Crow home and arrived Tn safety, tlie ball twenty feet over Bu llornung got to third, and tin winning run on Snyder’s long The Worcesters did not stop other two men, and the result' for Boston by 3to 3.

Breathers did good work at first, and Foley was kept lively in right held, capturing live Hies sent that way. Kipp’s umpiring was very fair, although his decision on strikes was much censured.

Tlic schedule has been chapped so as to have the Clevelands 'play In Detroit the 7th, Sih, and Oth of September, instead of the Bth, 9th; and lOtli. The new arrangement leaves Saturday, the 10th, open to be filled in case of rain the preceding days. Cincinnati Enquirer: “How would tins do for Cincinnati next year? Kowe and Ewing, catchers; McCormick and Welsh, pitchers; ,)im White, lb.: Dunlap, *21).: Caskins, s. s.; Morrissey, 3b.; Jones, 1. f.; Richardson, c. f.; Jim U’Uourke, r. f.” In the first place not half of these players can be secured for Cin cinnati, and if all could be engaged the team wouldn’t stand better than fourth. According to all accounts, Anson did a very silly thing at Detroit in changing the batting order of his team in last Wednesdays game from what it was in the list made out tlie night before according to rule. He placed Burns ahead of Williamson, contrary to the list, and when the game was over Manager Bancroft gave notice that he would claim the game on account of the violation of the league rule on the subject. Anson de serves severe censure if lie fooled with the batting order as alleged. ■ lie is altogether too much given to foolish performances of the kind, and needs to be brought up with a round turn. It is stated by the managers of the Detroit Club that Bennett was lined 550 Wednesday night for drinking so much the night pre vious that lie could not play well on Wednes day. The Post and Tribune says: “Ben nett played an exceedingly poor game and wore an air of seeming indifference about the result that did not do him credit. He was lazy and inaccurate, and oilier side stole bases on him audaciously, Kelly touch ing the plate twice while lie was dawuling about. His work at the bat was equally poor. During the Inst three games lie has been at bat thirteen times, and made only a single base-hit,”' Troy Times: A current rumor that the Troy players are three months behind in their pay was pronounced false yesterday by one of the directors of the club. He said that each player was paid every cent due before starting on the Eastern trip, and that every man would be paid in full on the next monthly pay-day. The director declared that tho backers of the Troys had lost ten times as. much as the Providence managers ever would without “squealing,” having lost S8,l)00 in 1879. He said that the club made money on tho Eastern trip, and was now ahead, but there would be noDeagne nine in the city next season, at least under the present management. Early in the season The Tribune called attention to the rnfliunly characteristics of the player mentioned in the following para graph from the Troy Times: “.Burdock proved himself a consummate blackguard in yesterday's game. In the sixth inning lie de liberately ran off the base line and ran straight against Gaskins, -whose back was turned to him. There was no earthly ex cuse for the outrage, except that Gaskins was backing up to second base on a ball that was being thrown in by Gillespie. Burdock was running to second, had no right to be off the base line, and certainly no excuse to run into the field ami knock down a player. Gaskins received* an inluryto ins knee, unit Ewing was substituted for him.” Much fault is found with Mullano, Detroit’s new pitcher, for giving seven Chicagoans their bases on balls m last \\ ednesdayM game—four runs being scored in conse quence. There is much ground for fault-find ing in the case. No pitcher is lit to serve in a league team who has no better control of the ball than to give seven men their bases; in fact, there is hardly ever any justification for sending a batsman to bis base on balls, no matter who .bo may be. When it is * remembered that the best batsman in the League fails'to obtain a clean hit oftener than mice out of three times at bat, the follv of donating anybody a base is apparent. The only conditions under which a bas£ on bails is excusable is where, with a man on second or third, and two men out, an exceptionally strong batsman is to be followed bv an exceptionally weak one; but in nineteen out of twenty instances It is belter to deliver fair balls and trust to the Held. In order‘to place a premium on effective pitching the League would do well to change its rules so ns to score a base on balls as*a pitcher’k*error, so that all such mistakes may cdunt against him in the season's averages. 1 - ember' 4, T 1881—TWENTY "TAGES. •ed with a ise of all, 1 doy started Pike plual islionc’s h ten scored fly to r to retin was a vii the game Pike ” the game by lied the charge, more with the Tim SCOUE BALE GOSSIIL • MARINE NEWS i safe Pike it for ikimr lead.

HOME GATHERINGS. PROTESTS AGAINST ASSESSMENTS. The following circular relating to the action to be taken by Collectors of Customs against protests Hied against assessments of duty was received by tho Custom-House authorities at this port yesterday; Tkeasuuv Department, Washington, Aug. , ai, issi.—Protests Hied with Collectors of Cus toms, under Sec. SWI of the Revised Statutes, against the rate nr amount of duties assessed on formal liquidation of an entry, have been generally regarded as merely preliminary to the appeal to tho Secretary of the Treasury, which the same section requires prior to a decision by tho Treasury Department upon the ease. Tho Department holds that a true construction ot the law. under the decisions of tho courts, re quires the Collector, upon receipt of such pro test, to examine tho grounds of tho protest, and, if it be found that tho parties arc entitled to the reilcfclalmed therein, either under any decision kof the Treasury Department or otherwise, and a sullicient protest has been Hied, that a rellquida tionof the entry should bo made* without submit ting the case to tho Treasury Department. Col lectors ot Customs will take action accordingly, and tho excess of duties paid in such cases will be repaid ns an excess of deposit. A report will be made to the department, at the close of each month, of all decisions of new questions made on such hdiquldatlons, in order that the de partment nmv give such instructions as will se cure uniformity of action at tho various ports. William Windom, Secretary. DOCK NOTES. The tug Ransom is going to Sturgeon Day. The big propeller New York, of the Union Line, lett last evening lor Buffalo. The south wind prevailing yesterday greatly delayed tho incoming licet of vessels. A signal station has just been established at L’Anse, with Joseph Dray as observer. Tho new tug O. B. Green. Capt.

Clark are in the Chicago Dock Company’s docks hav ing tholr bottoms calked. Capt. Fellows, ot Foscora, states that tho wreck discovered off Claybanks Is that of tho Daniel Lyons, sunk by collision about a year • ago. * Some vessel Captains claim that sailors* wages'* arc out of all proportion to the freights ob tained; that it takes all a vessel euu make to pay them. The tug K. Davis will be sold at Marshal’s sale at Sheboygan, Monday, to satisfy sixteen claims for seamen’s wages and mortgages amounting to about £3,000. Tho wrecking tug Booth has released tho cenoonor Julia Willard from tho beach near port Colborne. Tho vessel went oil lust fall, but is said to be In good condition. Capt. F.dward Maylham, one of tho best known of Buffalo's tugmen. assumed command of tho propeller Arturos Friday. Capt. Lvmuu Cook goes into Mr. Kcldcrhousc’s uew steam burgo U. A. Pucker. Tho Captain of the propellcrChauacy J. Huri but says that the fug-whistles at South Munltou, Skilhtgalee, and Thunder Bay were not blown during tho dense fog prevailing tho past week, and that bo came near running on tho beach on account of not knowing exactly where he was. whereas, had the fog-whistles been blowing, all danger would have been avoided. Other Cap tains arriving make tho sumo complaint. Capt. Ole Osnmnson, owner and Master of the schoonerTennic & Laurie has instituted legal proceedings against tho tug Annie Scbrivcr, of Portage Lake, for a claim of SIOO. Capt. Os nuinson alleges that tho Sehrlvcr ran his vessel hard aground on a sand bar while towing her out, and refused to assist him in getting off. The cargo of tho Laurie hud to be lightered at a considerable expense, ami another tug employed to release tho stranded craft, which not only delayed tno vessel live days, but also Involved tho owner in considerable expense. Noarlv every person acquainted with Capt. “Sandv” Brooks, of tho schooner Edward Blnke, has been nt a loss lo know wbat countryman he was. A grout many thought he was an Ital ian. but It seems all wore wrong. Yesterday, In conversation with Capt. McKay, the Superin tendent of Bridges, he confidentially told that gentleman that bn was a North of Ireland Irish man. “ But, Captain.” said Sandy, “ 1 was born in Toronto, Canada. Don’t give It away, will you?” That settles the matter, as “Sandy” has the reputation of being like that famous man who, when a boy, owned a hatchet, but could tell a lie. AROUND THE LAJCKS.

The apparatus is the invention of u.K Kin?, an Kdlngburg electrician, ami was recently tried on board a steamer sailing between Glasgow and London, its object is to dispense with a helms man and make tho compass itself steer the ship. For this purpose the compass card is titled with an index which is sot to the true course, and one decree on cither side of the true course two metal contact pins are adjusted; each pin is connected to a single Dnnlell cell, and when the ship deviates as much us a degree I rom her course to one side or the other the index comes into contact with one or other metal pin.
