A; Co Ki8 Wunil OperH House, We think all of our readers renieinhcr liose Wood and the Lewis Morrison Dramatic Compa ny. They were here last Octoher and gave such a line renderingof "Kroil Krou," at which time llosc Wood was repeatedly applauded ami called l.efoic the curtain. Since this company were here they have been on an extensive trip west, and have been very successful, more so than any dramatic troupe now traveling. The following from the St. Joseph (Mo.) fin.ylh will show how I hey were received in that place: "Miss Kose Wood presented "Caniille"' at Too. tie's Opera House last niylit, supported by Lew is Morrison's superb dramatic company, and nev ei'did a larger or more appreciative audience greet a dramatic organization in this city before. Miss Wood, in the leading role of "lamille," kept the house in smiles of delight, during the lirstpartof the play, with her merry laughs, lancing eves and bewitching wavs, tint her act ing in the stronger parts toward the last, was su perb. 'As Armmil, Sir. Morrison is very power ful, and his facial expression is excellent. Kn eore lifter encore followed the falling of the cur tain, and finally the audience became so enthusi astic that at the close of the fourth act. Miss Wood thanked the "most brilliant assemblage for the generous reception, and bouquets of How. cm were showered on her from every quarter of 'he House, wincli she gatnercu to her iireasl ami kissed passionately. She thanked the press of the city most heartily, and characterized tier re ception here on last 'Christmas day as a . Christ mas gift never to be forgotten. Her death scene at the close was the moot perfect piece of acting our people have ever seen. We regret exceed ingly that neither time nor space w ill permit of a more lengthy report, but sulliee it to jr tlmt when m is vvoou and ner support come 10 m.

In regard to prices, we learn that the company usually have had one dol lar for reserved scats, hut Mr. Sherwood told them that 75 cents was all he should allow any co mpany to charge in his house, consequently the prices are as usual, " cents lirst floor, .jOccnts second floor, and no extra charge for reserved seats, w ith may be obtained at Simon liros.' mil sic store. Leads and J'ulnts--Heath A. M.lligMn. ClilcHgn. There are tramps and tramps gentlemen of the road who move about from place to place some on Icgimatc, some on illegitimate, and ome on no business at all. Kiiki.. W. M vttoi k, of this city, has hc'-ii on the road for the past ten years, and knows about everybody in the state. Having been a wi ll know n and highly respected citizen of this county for over twenty-live years and in that time occupied various important ami responsible olllcial positions, it is inferable that when he took to the road it was on a thoroughly legitimate and honurahlc business. To clinch that point it is only neecgary to state that he has entire charge of the traveling I'cpartincnt of the Chicago tirm named In the heading, and of which we tind the following notice in the Chicago Juur mil of i'nmiiiirri of the "1st ult. The tirm am to be congratulated on their judgment in selecting so thoroughly competent and trustworthy a man as Mr. Mattocks as the head of a department of their business that necessarily must need careful and skillful management: IIKATII k Mll.l.ll.VV. This tirm. who have been established in Chica go for the past twenty-six years, may be looked upon ns one of the prominent land niarks of our city. At the time of the commencement of these gentlemen in business, the manufacture of white lead and colors was unknown in Chicago, but now it is one of our leading industries. Heath iV Milligan have been most active in producing the great improvements that have, taken place in their line of trade growing with our growth and to-ilav we timl them occupying a very prom inent position among our representative Inisines, men. They are tho-e who have been determin ed that Chicago should not only be a c ity of ex tensive dealers but also the manufacturing center f the Northwest. Their specialty i- in the manufacturr of white lead and pure colors for house and carriage painting, for which they have a large ami rapidly increasing demand. Within the past few months they have added many new mills of improved construction which will largely add to their manufacturing facilities, especially for making the finest grade of color- for coach and carriage painting, w ith a capacity of liftccii tons of lead and eolors per day. In, addition to the goods nf their own uialiuf.ii tore they carry a complete as. ortment f such other materials as may be re. quisit for thrir line of l.usim-. Their brand of Lead and Colors is well known over a very large area, extending from ( hicago west to Denver. .Hid in the Last l.i Miio. including all of the We-tern and Northwestern State.

Milli gan ever vacating the high position they bold in the Imi!iic.- euinmanitT of Chit igo. The Hell Itrnll. It is said in the middle ages a hundred thou sand mighty tomes were written in disputation over the question, "How many souls can rest at once on the point of a needle?" Hut surely the discussion was not a w hit more absurd than that which has surged up all at once in these days over the existence of u hell. It is not only the prominent theme of the pulpiters and thologians, but has Invaded t lie lecture platform and occupies a h.roo nhiee in the secular newspaper. Yet If anv o im had the courage ami patiem e to .oi- ... . , ! . . f. I low its windings thufl far, he must have been struck with the melancholy laci uiai in an tins . t . 41. .1 1.. .11 ll ' wild war i, f words not a single new idea, either in regard to the existence of heaven, hell or the devil, has aiiywucre found utterance. Nxtccn hundred years ago, in the same discussion, M. Aii"Ustine expressed the idea that the punish ment of the lost consisted chiefly in eternal scp. aratioii from the Deity, and a despair of reforma tion; and S'. Chrysostom, that it is a matter of small moment what the specific nature of future torment is, holding it far more Important to know how to escape hell than to know w here it is or exactly what it is like. We submit that from the days of the fathers to this, nothing more definite lias ever been uttered on the sub- ject. At the Kpiscopal church in Ottawa last Sunday evening, the Key. I', li. Nisn, to be in keeping with the times, felt himself called upon to take up the same theme, and he had a well tilled church to hear hiui. Ho took for his Wxt iial. vi. ', : "Whatsoever a man sowcth that shall he also m ip." In all ages, he said, mankind had agreed that there is to be a judgment of some kind, before some infallible bar, and that each would them receive his exact deserts. Also that as Hit! good would be inconceivably happy, so the wicked would be proportionately miserable hereafter. Phis was the general statement, upon which ot course speculation as to the nature and degree of the blessing or punishment was intin ite. The discussion had surged up and dow n like the waves of the ocean through the ages, and aftur a long sub.-idence had suddenly been revived in these days. As far as it had gone, how ever, it only demonstrated anew the adage of of Solomon that "there is no new thing under the bun." One somewhat notorious teacher had announced with great vehemence that he would not believe In a (iod who created hell, and man to be eternally punished there, mid so on. Who did believe any such absurdity? Kven Calvin's iron-clad doctrine of predestination did not go to the extent of holding (!od responsible for man's damnation. The whole teaching of Christ, and his apostles is epitomised in the Apostles' creed, and that only speaks of the forgiveness of sins and the life everlasting. In others words, its doctrine was that of the text, "Whatsoever a man sowcth that he shall also reap." Asthe man who sow s w heat expects to reap w heat, so hi spiritual things the man who sowcth to the flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption," tVe. We need only open our eyes and see the naturalness and inher ent righteousness of this law to solve the whole problem of the, future state. It is till there is re vealed on the subject and it is useless to look for any new light. If this law then is tnu and we have in the operations of nature daily demonstra tions that it must be true if there he any life be yond, then it is plain you cannot saddle the re sponsibility of your future life on any but your self. Not (iod, but the Devil and his angels made hell, and man w ill map it only if he sows its seeds. Father this, or man is wholly irre sponsible for his deeds here and hereafter, and all punishment i w rong and absurd. To preach riilituoiisncss, if we accept, the irresponsible doctrine, would be insanity, and to advise men to ileal justly, love mercy and walk humbly with (iod the height of silliness. Them would be in (iod's kingdom neither law or order, reason or right, and bedlam would be let loose on earth. Christ s mission must be condemned as useless and a blundering waste of divine ctl'ort. In short there is no choice but to accept the doc trine of mans' accountability hem and hereafter, or to turn Sadduece or Atheist, defying nature and reason and doubting ones' own existence. Of course, this rough sketch does no justice to the language or logic of the speaker and omits all his forcible illustrations. In this connection it would be hardly fair to pass by the excellent choir of this church w ithout some word of commendation. Itconsists at pn cut of Miss Vette, soprano. Mis Smith, alto, Dr. K. S. Hubert, bass, A. T. Hartels, tenor, (the two latter volunteering their services,) and Tony Simons, organist. Their singing on this occa sion was unusually good, as have been most of their ellorts during the past few w eeks since they have become fully "broken in" and th lames accustomed to the peculiar service. They are now thought to be the finest choir in the city; and since the service gives ample play for line music, we shall expect to hear still further im provement.

The City Council. The regular February meetingof the city coun cil was held on last Tuesday evening. The may or and the elevvi. aldermen now comprising the council were present during the evening. Mr. Jackson's chair, heretofore almost invariably oe- cupieu by that gelitlein.in, Pore tne insignia of! mourning, and the hall was modestly draped out ot respect to hi memory. Mr. Thos.

Bowman, from the street and alley committee, reported that a contract had been let for rebuild ing the C'he.nut st. bridge, and that the work was in progress. This statement by How man re minded Trimble that the wood belonging to the city from the old bridge was being carried oil rapidly, and made a motion, which was carried to the effect that the street and alley committee be instructed to build a high hoard fence around the city lot to make a secure receptacle for this wood and other loose property of the city. Ho. ban wanted to know who owned the bridge, in a tone indicating various horrible things. How titan said, modestly, that the committee had sold the iron and intended to remove the wood to the eitv lot. "All quiet on the Potomac. Aid. Phelps reported back the billot' Mr. P. ;an of , for the use. of his water by the city from ( letobcr to May, and asked to be relieved of further consideration of the matter. Hoban moved that Mr. Kgan lie allowed free use of the artesian water in the engine hou-e to w ater his horses (he having asked for that privi lege one month previous,) provided the city's in terests suflered not. Shuler's motion that Kgan pay iS'-io per annum for the water received no see. ond: whereupon Mr. Huban said that since the city had, indirectly, burned down Mr. I'gan's barn in May last, he thought Kgan had some claim upon their liberality; and the council said lie could have tin; water till further notice free. The bill w as then laid on the table, since it was understood that Mr. Kgan Intended to do nate the bill to the city, in case he got the vvatc r.
