Would that we could say as much of the town ball proper. Nevertheless thero are many things in connection with this .part of tho building which he may be called im provements and which no doubt, will be appreciated by tho public, though uiunts. On either side of the proscen ium arch are three (logge) boxes with raised decorations of papier macho and handsome draperies which will easily seat six persons each. The parquet is rich in its heavy bruBsels carpet, the chairs .like those in the balconies, be ing of perforated wood, with iron frames. The two circular balconies wi.h their polished brass railings liko those about the boxes are strikingly effective, us are tho highly polished cliandoiiois and side lights, for gas and electricity. In front of the stage is tne orchestra pit, entrance to which is from tue under stage. Tne proscen ium arch is 28x28 feet. Tho depth of the stage is about 35 foet with width of 67 feet. From tho stage floor to the gridiron in tho roof it is 00 feet nud all scenery is raisod and lowered with what is termed a straight lift, all being worked from the fly gallery ingeniusiy arrangod and completely equipped 40 feet above tho stage.

Wil liamson was united by Rev. W. H. Col lins to E. A. Tyler of the Brooks house A few members of tho immediate family of the brido only were present. Tho happy pair toon the 4 10 train south for New York, purposing from there to go to LueDec to witness tne storming of the ice palace at tho Carnival and to return borne after a bridal trip of a tortnignt. Ho quietly had all the ar rangoments been made, that few ex cept the guests and employees of the Brooks bouso had a chance to offer their congratulations, which the latter did in a measure to compare with the quantities of rice with which the de parture of the pair was showered at tho depot. Miss Williamson, who has lived with her parents at tho Brooks house for two years past has won a deep placo in tho hearts of Brattleboro people and in her Mr. Tylor baa won a wife tt rare loveliness of character and mind, a de scendant of one of Now Jersey's his toric families, of which Hugh Wil liamson, one of tho trainers of tho con stitution, was a member. Her grand father was the distinguished Chancel lor Livingston of that state, and her great-grandfather was for 13 years its governor. Miss Williamson, who has a handsome fortuno in her own right, has in her quiet and blessing-bringing way done a great deal while here for tne poor and sutlering, and many are tno prayers tnat win go up for the long life of happiness and usefulness she do serves, and many will be tho felicita tions that Brattleboro is apparently to do ner permanent nome.

A gallery has been built around three sides of the hall, but so high ep and so narrow as to be an object of criticism. The stage is portablo and can be placed in any part.of the room. .The ventilation is secured through the cinuiney witn an opening just above tlio floor, but just where the cold air is to comes in is not apparent, unless it come from opening the doors. The decoration of the celling and walls ia in good taste and the acoustics arc pronounced by musicians to be much superior to the old hall. The floor is rough and will hardly invite inspection from the dancing element. The galleries are reached from third Hour of the building as is second balcony iu the opera house. Kambusch & Petitt of New York who did it, gave us moro than their con tract called for. The drop curtain and the landscape scone on it is excellently done, though there is hardly enough high lights in the drapery, and the painting on the proscenium arch, on canvass and in oils, is exceedingly good. Tho brass work is also well done. The papier-mache work is put together somewhat roughly, but all we eould expect for tho expenditure. The caps of the columns in the boxes, which an' reiinaissaiice, are very nice, but why couldn't some saint hare made the shaft to fit the cap or the 1 cap to fit tho shaft? But aside from the j this tho boxes are of very pleasing de I ho :sien.
