Whit man In Philadelphia. LECTURE BY R. G. INGERS0LL. An ; Immense Andleuce Listen to the Orsat Orutor Jtaloglzo the Vonertoble Poet, TV ho Thnnk tho Audience In n Very Feoble Voice. Philadelphia, Oct. 82. Col. Robert G. Ingersoll lectured Inst night nt Horti cultural hnll to nn immense nudience on "Liberty nnd Literature," tho pro ceeds for tho benefit of Walt Whitman. WALT WHITMAN. Col. Ingersoll introduced his lecture by saying: "At this time a young man -ho to whom thia testimonial is given he, upon whose head hnvo fallen the snows of more than eevonty winters gave to tho world a book, 'Leaves of Grass.' "This book was, and is, tho true transcript of a soul. No drapery of hypocriby, no pretense, no fear. All customs were forgotten or disregarded, all rules broken nothing mojhnnical no imitation spontaneous, running nnd winding like a river, multitudinous in its thoughts us tho waves of the sea nothing mathematical or measured. "His book was received by many with disdain, with horror, with indignation and protest by tho few as a marvelous, almost miraculous, message to the world full of thought, philosophy, poetry and music. Since tho year 1883 the American people have devolopedA they are somewhat acquainted with the literature of the world, and I propose to examine this book and to Btate in a general wny what Walt Whitman has done, what he has accomplished nnd tho pltvco he has won in the world of thought." Col. Ingersoll then entered into his themo with spirit, and eulogized Mr. Whitman, recounting his many acts of kindness, to the young especially; speak ing of him ns a philosopner, and pass ing on tho lecturer recited and com mented on the poem, "A Word Out of the Sea." and l he lines on the death of Lincoln, "When Lilacs Lnst in the Dooryard Bloomed." The poem, he said, will last as long as tho memory of Lincoln. "In this one book, in theso wondrous 'Leaves of Grass,' you find hints and suggestions, tenches and fragments of all there is ot life that lies between the babe, whose rounded cheeks dimple be neath his mother's laughing, loving eyes, and the old man, snow-cr wned, who. with a smile, 'extends his hand to death." The venerablo poet, to whom the oc casion was a testimonial, sat in his wheel-chair on tho stage, nnd at the conclusion of Col. Iugersoll's oration rolled himself forward, and in a feeblo voice tendered his thanks to the audi ence and to Col. Ingersoll. finishing his remarks by exclaiming, "Hail and fare well, hail and farewell." Tho scone was very impressive. TELEGRAPHERS TORN UP.

If an Amer ican disobeys tue law in Mexico he is ar. ested just the sarao as a Mexican would be in the United States. Mexican laws differ from those of our country. "If an American cannot abide by thoir laws he should not remain there. The officers are supposed to uphold tho law, and so far as I can see they do so. Americans are given as speedy trial as possible; in fact, I think tnoro is somo discrimination in their favor. It is the consul's duty at Paso Del Norte to look out that other prisoners aro not given preference over Americans; that trials are conducted fairly, and many of tho cabes which have been reported to American newspapers, I know from my own personal observation are greatly exaggerated."
