This protect seems to have been received with more general favor than the Lake plan, and on learning the drift of public sentiment, the Messrs. Lake with drew their proposition. A com mittee has been formed to solicit subscriptions, and they have met with much encouragement so much, in fact, as to convince them that the plan is a popular one, and probably the most feasible. A meeting will be called for the for mation of a stock company as soon as a sullicient amount is subscrib ed to make the success ot the pro iect reasonably assured. Ju meantime the Messrs. Lake have decided to make extensive im provements in the hall now m use, which they own, including a gal lery and a greatly enlargud stage.

It is probable that the grand jury will give its special attention to this condition of things. The Judge also laid special stress on the ; the gambling evil, whicli is ad- milled to have flourished almost I undisturbed in (ireenville for a 1 long time.
