Sufflclcntly decent ttotutfU by no weans tn thunlustlc respect was pul to the presidential aud KUternatloual request to devota Thurailay of tlio present wek to prayer uml thanksgiving.

Mr. Viites, of the MctliotlWt church, prcucliliiK the sermon; service ut the Episcopal church, Kev. Mr. Speirs, the rector, prcackln' u scrmim; rind service ut the German Methodist church. The hanks ui.d iiot of tlio husiness places were closed, except the saloons, at which the favorite tipple was Tom and Jerry. The day opened mild and pleasant, and it was notable us the tlrst ihunkiijrivjnfr day in half a dozen years on which there was neither mow dm Wic ground or tee anywhere for skating. In tlio evening a storm blew up from the south, and thure was a copious warm rain fall, which lasted nearly all uilit. In spite of the un pro pitious weather, however, there was a well at iirtidcd dance at Willis' Hall and another at Turner hall. In private families there was about the average consumption of turkey with cran berry sauce und mince pics, ending up with card parties in the evening. Few, probably, except the meager mmibers that attended church, took a thought as to what they bhould be thankful for or why they obsorv ed the holiday anyhow. The season, at best, senna to be unpropitioiis for that contented, hopeful frame of mind that usually Incites to thankfulness. We are on tlio threshold of win tcr. The cares and miKicties which, with at least two out of every three, surround the prob lem involved in providiui: food, raiment and fuel for the next six months of frost und snow, is not provocative of exuberant gratitude." Our pil grim fathers, who lixed the custom and day, may have felt otherwise. They, at leat, hart hew.M out r the forest u home anil sufety for the win tcr, und sitting dowu by the side of their blu.iitg hearths after the arduous 6ummer struggle, could send up a goauinc song of thanksgiving and prayer of real devotion, which was all the more meritorious because not tarnished by the excesses and gluttony that are now too ofteu the discreditable attendant of the day's observ ance. Yet with all 'these drawbacks, the pious, contemplative ininu can still seo much in the surroundings of everybody, no matter how lowly of condition, f lint may justly call for thankful ness to the great (iiver of all good, in compari son of whose infinite perfections we are all but " poor creatures" vile dust, vessels of wrath lit for destruction.

Last week tlic ladies of the church gnve Mrs. F. a "surprise party," and during the evening presented her with a large and handsome clock, a stereoscope, and some other useful articles. The Sunday Sch.iol inwhloh'he was especially popular presented him with ft hundsomu album oontaiiing the photographs of many of his friends here.

The boat was liurncd to the water's edge, and most of a large cargo of lumber was burned with it. Her barge was run oat of reach of the flames und escaped uninjured. Capt. Wm.

The result was not only the largest and most profitable but Uie most enjoyable occasion of the kind we have attended for many a day. There were some 150 guests present, and the evening was spent in dancing, vocal and instrumental music, and all the other amusements that the luxuries of that noble home afforded. An ex cellent supper was served, and at a late hour the guests reluctantly departed. Surely, if our people could speed so pleasant an evening of. tencr, we should be a happy community.

ARTIFICIAL STONE. A New Manufacture at Ottawa. Col. W. C. Attlx, of Chicago, having leased one of the warehouses and a portion of the ground known as the Fishbem lot near the Main street swing hr'u'.gv) across the 6!de cut, with a view of commencing there the manufacture, on a large scale, of u',;!. i;ii stone, a word or two on the subject will naturally interest our readers. Tlu process Mr. Attlx. proposes to use is of course patented, and combines two former put ents the Frear patent and the Hull & Salisbury patent, the latter known as the Plm-nix stone. The manufacture and use of artificial stone is comparatively new In this country, and especial ly in Illinois; yet the Frear stone (upon which the PhuMiix is a vast Improvement) has been in limited use in thU state for the last eight or ten years, and has thus far not only borne t;ie test of heat, frot and moisture equal to lliu Deal natur al stone, tut in the crucial test of the great Chi cago fire, as John B. Furwell Untitles, " came out of the tfro entirely uninjured, while all other stones proved worthless." Its merits, under that test having been thus peculiarly emphasized, the stone so rapidly gained public confidence that in this state alone it is now manufactured at fifteen or twenty different points. 'there Is one very largo establishment for its manufacture near Hyde Park, in Chicago; and there arc manufac tories at Champaign, Decatur, Pekin, (iulesburg, &c. Indeed few important structures in the in. tenor of Illinois, public or private, arc now erected without the use partly or entirely so r ns stone is needed of artificial stone made by the improved Plia nlx process. In Chi eugo, also, since th great tire, it has come large lv into use. over a hundred business us well ns j private edifices being built of this stone, includ ing the large Staatzeillng printing establishment of Mr. llesiug, John 15. Furwell's dry goods pal ace, as well as his private dwelling, and so on. The stone is also largely used in building sidewalks, making those beautiful tessellated pavements becoming so common in the southern part of the city, and which, while believed to be as durable us marble, cor.t no more than a brick or plank sidewalk. The ingredients used In the manufacture of the stone are mainly sand and hydraulic cement, and the peculiar advantage of Ottawa as u place for its manufacture consists in the fact that the whole city and its surroundings are underlaid with unlimited quantities of the best sand in the country for the purpose, while we are conven ient to the great Utlca Cement Mills, and have abundant cheap transportation for the convey ance ot" the stone to nil points of the compass. We kuve'said that the manufacture and use ol artificial stone in this country is comparatively recent, but that is true only with twine excep tion, whilcl'm Europe and the East tone made substantially by what is now known as the I'rcar-Phienix process has been iu us j foi many years, running backp in Asht Minor and Kgypt, it is believed into thousands of y-'ars afro. In Paris many of the most imposing structures dur ing the past century have been built of artificial stone, made chiefly of sand and u cement made at Tell in Ardeche, und in England vast quanti ties of u like stone have been made by the uc of sand and the well-known Portland cement, with, of course, certain chemicals. M. Lesseps, the great Frer.eh engineer, In building the Suez Canal, found it necessary, at Tort Said, ivhere the cenal enters the Mediterranean, to construct immense storm jetties, one :i,00!) and the other 2,515 yards long, and they were built entirely cf artificial stone, the cement being brought from Ardeche, iu France, and the sand used being that . . . . - 1! 1 11.. ol the seashore, llicse jetties are sonu uuo from three to six feet in thickness and ranging from 2t' to 00 feet in height. Most of the stones are solid in blocks weighing SO tons. Xo other stone ever discovered, it is said, has becu found to refeibt the action of saltwater und the waves equal to this. And the success of M. Lesseps in tlio manu facture of this stone suggests anotner iaea, which has caused considerable speculation among antiquaries. In viewing the remains ol ancient Egyptian architecture its temples and obeli&k, in which stone arc often used of such vast proportions und elevated to such impossi ble heights, the conundrum has puzzled the learned for centuries, by what sort of machin ery, by what unknown and inconceivable engi neering skill, were these stones 60 transported from away up the Nile and then placed where now found Pompcy's Tillar, for instance, rests on a bams !25 feet in height; and upon that stands a shaft ten feet in diameter und fifty feet in height all one solid piece, without break or joint; and surmounting tlil3 is anotner stone, twenty-five feet In height, with a flat top, upon which stood, or was meant to stand, a colassal statue. How were these immense stones ele vated to their place? The-solution suggested by the operations of M. Lesseps is simple enough the stones were built there taken up on scaf folding, bucket full by bucket full and hamper by hamjier full. The only unsolved puzzle that remains lK.viig, how did the stone, thus ar tificially made, receive its hugh polish a polish which to this day enables a man standing forty feet from that remarkable monolith, to see his own reflection from its surface. After all, with this exception, what is Pompcy's Pillar compar ed lo the Light House which M. Lesseps con- Htrnrteil at Port .Said? Thut is also built of stone, without break or joint, that would weigh hundreds of tons, with a base forty feet In di ameter, and k IMi feet in height, or S7 feet higher than Pompey's Pillar, or any other of the forty famous Egyptian obelisks. But we are digrei-iug. The point we are "driving at" of course is, thut this artificial stone, being as durable as uny natural stone ever dis covered, is in the way of the erection and orna mentation of first class buildings, as well as In the building of sidewalks, garden walls, to be preferred to any other because it is capable of iuflnitc ornamentation with the case oi pottery, ..rwl ut a fdnrth the cxneuse of common Jolici lime stone or Batuvia sandstone.

The people on the East side having set the wholesome example of de ciding to construct a cistern lor fire purposes at their own expense, trusting to the city council some day to reimburse them, we are now urged to " stir up " the sluggish spirits of the people of the 5th and (Hh wards to move iu the same di ruction. The water In the canal and side-cut is about to be drawn off, and witho-ut that the 5th ward Is really left without an available drop of water in case of fire, and the situation of the fith ward, except in the vicinity of Mr. Strawu's well, is permanently no less deplorable. AVhile It is useless to await the action of the city council on the subject, there is no doubt entertained that, should the jieople themselves contribute the money to construct the necessary cisterns now, when the city treasury is relieved from its pres ent straitened condition the council would re- imburse the sums advanced to the contributors. But whether this can be relied upon or not, the i'K ki'i'iiiH so urge nt and the danger in the wards indicated from fire so Imminent, that ac- tion like that proposed is imperatively demand ed even without reference to the Iiojhj oi uui mate re-imbursement by the city.

Since the great O'Leary Weston walking tilt every one has the walking fever, and fishy stories of great feats in that line are heard on every side, and each feels in duty bound to expatiate on his own prowess. Out of such a spirit came the match of this week at the Fair Grounds, be tween Coles and Art Hughs, a two mile walk. Coles made his first mile in ll.1.:; minutes, his second in 13,',,'. Hughs made his first In minutes, but was so petered out that he threw up the sponge, and did not attempt a second. This match fired the Spartan youth in our midst, an on Tuesday Clarence Hobert tried his wind and made a mile in less than 10 minutes, accord ing to his watch. The rest of our walkists claim that his watch must be a "stopper," or that he struck the hulf mile track. Mr. II. thereupon grew reckless and wagered his wealth in cigars that he'd do it again. So the walk was set for Thursday morning. He made the first quarter mile in 2:10, the half in 4:!:s, and the mile in 'j:i-.

This seems to be an era of narrow escapes, as another occurred at Utlca on Monday evening. Some three or four gentlemen were waiting for the 8 o'clock freight to come cast. The train was switching, and Mr. E. Clark, Justice of the Peace at Marseilles, was walking on one track toward the caboose.
