THE GRANT PACIFIC HOTEL. One of the most marked institutions of the outgrowth of life in our larger centers of population is the great hotel, and no feature is mure iiumuie iuu reiiiariuiLjie 111 utiw v-iii-cago than the vast caravansaries that are to make her the hotel city of the continent. The largest of these, and the largest hotel struc ture in the world, is the Grand Pacific, a cut of which we give in this issue, at once the pride and the marvel of the Garden City. Its immense size and elegance are well indicated in the nrravinr. anil verv reliable in suf??est- ivenees as to the appointments and adorn ments of the interior. The Grand Pacific cov ers an area of 64,000 Square feet, an entire block, bounded by Clark, Jackson, LaSalle and Quincy streets. Opposite, on Clark street, is rapidly rising the vast government building, also occupying an entire square. The material of the fronts of the great hotel is the beauti ful olive-tinted Ohio sand-stone. The struc ture cost over one million dollars, and its fur nishing by the lessees, Messrs. George W. uage, uavia A. uage, ana jonn a. nice, nearly four hundred thousand dollars, an expenditure warranted by their twenty years lease, and securing throughout a richness, elegance, and solidity that will give enduring attractiveness to the hotel, and carry its fame among travel lers all over the globe. The carpets of the house, Axminster, Aubisson, Wilton and En glish Brussels, are all in new styles, and large ly in special designs, and aggregate over six acres. The beautiful carpets or tne cornuors, eleven feet wide, amount to over a mile in length. The features of the hotel that most strike the visitor and guest are the two im mense interior courts, used respectively for the grand office and the office arcade The principal Dining Hall is 135 by 65 feet ; the La- dies' Ordinary 75 by 75 feet ; the Grand Parlo 100 by 25 feet ; the noble promenade with its Corinthian Colonnade is 130 by 30 feet. The kitchen, fitted up with the most approved ap pliances of the cuisine, is 140 by 60 feet. The svstem of protection against fire is perfect. The floors are filled in with cement, and the floor beams bricked in between partitions. The house has its regular disciplined hre brig ade of fifty trusty emplovees. Standing iron columns from the street, vast tankB in the roof, the most powerful steam pump in the city, with 3,000 feet of hose always kept at tached in various parts of the house, a tele- grapn nre alarm in every room, ana tne new and perfect electric clock system of Prof. Hamblot are among the appliances and safe guards against conflagration. From three hy drants on the roof the hotel force can protect their own structure and help tne safety of ad joining buildings. It would be difficult to sug gest a feature iu a great hotel which the Grand Pacifio has not. The entire work of carrying the structure to completion has been for many monthB in charge of the lessees, whose repu tations and fortunes were made in the Sherman House destroyed in the great fire. Few strang ers will visit Chicago without making tne Urana Pacific one of the principal lions of their visit. Twenty months have given cnicago a marvel lous beauty in her new structures, which in ex tent more than restore her former business capacity. Her streets are now lined with tall blocks that are unsurpassed in variety and richness in any city m the world. Our readers will thank us for the presentment of the larcr est and most striking structure of all, the Grand Pacific, which on the first day of Juue, 1873, opened its doors to guests. A Narrow Escape for Miss Nellie Grant. On "Wednesday evening, just after 6 o'clock, Miss Nellie Grant left the President s cottage for a ride in her pony phaeton. She was unaccompanied, except by the colored coachman. The team was the President !s favorite span of spirited black ponies, and they bowled along the avenue in nae style. While passing along the lower end of Ocean avenue the pomes became suddenly frightened and started into a furious run. The driver manfully clung to tne lines and did everything possible to check the runaways, but all to no pur pose, for tho? were unmanageable. Miss Grant bravely kept her seat and did not manifest any alarm, while the plunginer ponies tossed the tiny carriage on either side of the road. As the team reached the residence of Mr. Franklin, the agent of the Cunard line, they whirled into the yard and across the lawn, dashing themselves on to the piazza, where they were stopped in their mad career by tne astonisiied visitors, Miss Grant was assisted from the car riage, which miraculously escaped de struction, and was warmly congratulated on her narrow escape from serious in jury.

Our readers will say that there must be a reason for all this praise. Xhey are right. Tne effi cacy of this celebrated medicine is es tablished by evidence which it is im possible to doubt. Among the thou sands who have borne testimony to its excellence, there is not one dissentient voice. In verjr many phases of inor ganic disease it seems to be unfailing. All diseases arising from a vitiated state of the blood are surely eradicated by it. It is an effectual remedy for pulmonary complaints, bilious, remittent and inter mittent fevers, rheumatism and dys pepsia. It purges the body of all un healthy humors, gives tone to the sys tem, 'and where the vital powers are en feebled, restores their functions to vig orous and healthy action. All this it does the more effectually because its operation is not interfered with by the presence of alcohol. The Vinegar Bit ters is perfectly free from any such hurtful ingredient. We have always believed that plants contain the true remedies for disease, and all the rem edies necessary. Dr. Walker is on the line of real progress, and we hope that he will not rest on his present discov eries. Com.

It is of ffreat importance that the system should bo in a vigorous condition when the hot weather commences. The effects of a high temperature upon an enfeebled frame are always more or less disastrous. The loss of substance and the declen' Bion of nervous power, occasioned by excessive heat, can only be compensated by the active, healthful, and regular exercise of all the bodily functions by which the waste of nature is replen ished and the vital energies renewed.

Walker's California Vin egar Bitters are a purely Vegetable ' preparation, made chiefly from the na tive herbs found on the lower ranges of : the Sierra Nevada mountains of Califor nia, the medicinal properties of which are extracted therefrom without the use . . of Alcohql. The question is almost daily asked, " What is the cause of the unparalleled success of Viitegab Bit ters t" Our answer is, that they remove the cause of disease, and the patient re- covers his health. They are the great; blood purifier and a life-giving principle, a perfect Kenovator and Invigorator of the system. Never before in the history of the world has a medicine been compounded possessing the remarkable qualities of Vinegar Bitters in healing the sick of every disease man is heir to. They are a gentle Pureativo as wU as a Tonic, relieving Congestion or Inflammation of the Iiiver and Visceral Organs, in Bilious DifMiflSOS. " The properties of Dr. Wamlbb's Vinegar jBittkrs are Aperient, Diaphoretic, , Carminative, Nutritious, Laxative, Diuretio, Sedative, Counter-irritant, Sudorific, Altera tive, and Anti-Bilious. Grateful Thousands proclaisii v ; egab Bitters the most wonderful. L. j vigtirant that ever sustuined the siukiii system. ' V o Person can take these" Bitters ; .iccording to directions, and remain long unwell, provided their bones are not de- - . stroyed by mineral poison . or other means, and vital organs wasted beyond repair. ' ' Bilious. Remittent and Inter mittent Fevers, which are so preva- ' lent in the valleys of our great rivers - -throughout the United States, especially -those of the Mississippi, Ohio, Missouri, Illinois, Tennessee, Cumberland, Arkan- . sas,- Bed, Colorado, Brazos, Rio Grande,' Pearl, Alabama, Mobile, Savannah, Ro anoke, James, and many others, with i their vast tributaries, throughout, oar .. entire country during the Summer and Autumn, and remarkably so during sea sons of unusual heat and dryness, are i invariably accompanied by extensive deT : rangements of the stomach and liver, and other abdominal viscera. In their' treatment, a purgative, exerting a pow erful influence upon these various or gans, . is essentially necessary. There ' is no cathartic for the purpose equal to Db. J. Walkee's Vinegab BrrrERS, ' as they will speedilyremove the dark colored viscid .matter with which the '. -bowels are loaded, at the same time , stimulating the secretions of the liver, , , and generally restoring the healthy functions of the digestive organs. ' ' Fortify the body against disease by purifying all its fluids with Vejegab Bittees. No epidemic can take hold ; of a system thus fore-armed. Dyspepsia or Indigestion, Head-: ache, Pam in the Shoulders, Coughs, Tightness of the Chest, Dizziness, Sour Eructations of the Stomach, Bad Taste in the Mouth, Bilious Attacks, Palpita tatiou of the Heart, Inflammation of the Lungs, Pain in the region of the Kid neys, and a hundred other painful symp- ' -toms, are the offsprings of Dyspepsia. One bottle will prove a better guarantee of its merits than a lengthy advertise ment. ' Scrofula, or King's Evil, White Swellings, Ulcers, Erysipelas, Swelled Neck, Goitre, Scrofulous Inflammations, Indolent Inflammations, Mercurial Affections, Old Sores, Eruptions of the Skin, Sore Eyes, etc. In these, as in all other constitutional Dis eases, "Walker's Vinegar Bitters have shown their great curative powers in the most obstinate and intractable cases. : For Inflammatory and Chronic ,: Rheumatism, Gout, Bilious, Remit tent and Intermittent Fevers, Diseases of the Blood, Liver, Kidneys and Bladder, these Bitters have no equal. Such Diseases . ; are cansed by Vitiated Blood. . Mechanical Diseases. Persons en gaged in Paints and Minerals, such as Plumbersf Type-setters, Gold-boaters, and Miners, as they advance in life, are subject to paralysis of the Bowels. To guard against this, take a dose of Walker's Vin egar Bitters occasionally. .' For Skin Diseases, Eruptions, Tet- . ter, Salt-Bheum, Blotches, Spots, Pimples, Pustules, Boils, Carbuncles, .Ring-worms, Scald-head, Sore Eyes, Erysipelas, Itch, Scurfs, Qiscolorations of the Skin, Humors and Diseases of the Skin of whatever name or nature, are literally dug up aud tarried out of the system in a short time by the u:- j of these Bitters. - Pin, Tape, and other "Worms, lurking in the system of so many thousands, -are effectually destroyed aud removed.

For Female Complaints, in young or old, married or single, at the dawn of wo manhood, or the tnm of life, those. Tonio. . Bitters display so decided an influence that improvement ra soon perceptible. - " Cleanse the Yitiated Blood when ever you find its impurities bursting through the skin in Pimples, Eruptions, or Sores; cleanse it when you find it obstructed and sluggish in the veins ; cleanse itwhcu it is foul ; your feelings will toll you when.
