PANDEMONIUM AT COOPER INSTITUTE, Tile Colored Troops to Mr. Glad-stone that the listen part of their Rus-Sell's demands of firm as Treaty of government prior to for so far been to Earl tenor the settled any manner Unanimous and Enthusiastic Ratification of Everything. A ratincatlon meeting which, for pithy speechmaking and hearty enthusiasm, far distances the Grceloy meeting of last Monday night, took place at the hall of Cooper Union last evening in endorsement of the nomination of "Woodhull and Douglass by the equal rights, free love, labor reform, long hair and woman suffrage party. The hall was densely crowded half an hour before the hour of meeting. The front row was filled by UNRUT.Y BOYS, who passed the dreary interval of waiting by tossing huge paper pellets at the bald heads of more respectably clad people in the body of the audience, while scattered here and there among the tough crowd were about a hundred women, some of them with pretensions to beauty, but the greater number of that desolate type that bespeaks the faithful adherent of the party. In the aisles were noticeable the rugged features and well-worn clothes of the worktngmen on strike, who, finding their extra hoars heavy on their hands, had come to be amused. One or two line faces were visible and a good many longhaired gentry, bat the great ruling mass of the audience seemed to be composed of b'hoys out on a lark, who Intended to have their fan whether Vic was ratified or not. The pillars on the stage were hung with the old time-honored mottoes of the party--"Public employment a remedy for strikes;" "Interest on money a direct tax upon labor;" '-Government protection and provision from the cradle to the grave,*' and similar bids for the sympathy of the groundlings. They did not seem to affect the audience much, however. The boys were ont for FDK, NOT FOR SENTIMENT. The slight delay, even before the hour of meeting, excited their ire. They wanted the trouble to begin, and commenced "guying" the few forlorn females and "cheeky" gentlemen who had already ! taken seats upon the platform. "Bring on your ! elephantesses:" cried one; "Come out, if yer want to be ratified!" cried another. And then a number of ready geniuses commenced whistling, "Down in a coal mine," to which the mass kept time with their feet in that harmonious accompaniment known among themselves as "THE BLACKWELL'S ISLAMD QUICKSTEP." The rjaper pellet amusement in the meantime ministered to the pleasure of those not musically inclined. At a few minntea before eight a delegate came forward and announced a list of officers of the meeting--J. D. Revmart for President, and Mrs. Hattie JEimbal), Mrs. Spear. Theodore H. Banks and half a dozen others for Vice Presidents. At the call of the house on the adoption of these names a thundering-"aye" was followed by an equally thundering "no," which served to disarrange affairs so much that it was uncertain all through the evening WHO WAS CBL8JKHAS. The deleeate afore-mentioned, however, introduced Mrs. Spear, and that lady having announced that "we would now have a niece by the band," took the chairman's seat and administered the duties of that office to the close. No band, appeared, however, and the obliging audience in this dilemma regaled itself as before with whistling an air to the "Island Quickstep'' one of the ingenious ones flinging in a variation or two like the so.ind of a steam whistle. The band finally found breath and discoursed THE -'.IOLLT BROTHERS' GALOP." Mrs. SPEAK, at the conclusion of the air, advanced with a firm step to the rostrum and said:-"Fellow citizens, we, the equal rights party of the Union, are assembled here to-night in the cause of reform. Sone know so well as ourselves-the working classes, the disfranchised, the lowly, the oppressed--what need there is of reform. Our platform is based upon freedom and justice to all people, and is broad enough to cover an the reform that we need.

An alarm of "lire" or "murder;" raised by some chevaliers in the crowd, to give them an opportunity to "go through" their neighbors in the stampede, served to half empty the outer edge of hall, and by the time Woodhull's speech was the crowd had so dwindled that the meeting lost its flavor. * ENGLAND. .

J The country is steadily becoming tranquil. flrio Diaz is in the State of Jalisco, intriguing Lozada, the independent chief. At Tepic Diaz issued another pronunciamento, which was received very coolly. A proclamation is in signed by Porflrio Diaz, proclaiming Lerdo de Tejada President of the republic of Mexico. It the general opinion, however, that the proclamation is a forgery. Many people incline to the opinion that the document was fabricated by of President Juarez for the purpose of testing feeling of the friends-of Lerdo.

Commerce is improving slowly, but the interests are prostrate and manufacturing enterprises suffering from the consequent stagnation.
