Reception to Rev. Dr. Benham. Probably one of tbe largest assemblages that ever met at Asbury Church gathered there last evening to join in the reception to Rev. Dr. Benham, who bad for the second time been returned by his conferenoe to the pastorate of this cburoh. Tbe evidences of a joyful satisfaction over the return of Dr. Benham were evervwbere present, and thai gentleman was given a welcome which cer tainly must have assured him that he occu pied a warm place in the haarta of tbe entire people of A&bury Church. Supper was served from 6 to 8 o'clock, followed by a literary entertainment, at which readincs were given by Miss May Dellbridge and Mis llale, vocal selections by the Flower City Harmonists, and an instrumental duet by Mr. and Miss Palmer. Each number on the programme received a spirited eoo re. Re fresh ments were served at the close. A Much Aliased Man. Charles Dressier, Alias Hecor alias Dres den, to whom at times even other names are not objectionable, was brought to this city from Albany last night by Detective Kava- nagb. He Was arrested in Albany on the charge of defrauding a publish ng house out of goods, and though tbe charges could not be sustained, before he was released it was learned that bis alissship was wanted in nearly every city on the line of the Central- iludscn railway. The police think they nave in mm a particulary bard character. He confesses to an acauaintance with ' Jimmy ' Mortimer, who is now in iall for burglary, and gives other evidence of posses-ing more knowledge than he would be willing to part with. He Wanted It Changed. People living in tbe Seventh ward In the vicinity of Meigs street and Maple place re ceived several calls yesterday and the day before from a shabby looking individual who wan tea a half dollar chanced. As far as can be learned he had several of the half dollars in bis hand aud each had a curious look. No one appears to have changed any oi me pieces and there is a suspicion that tney are counterfeit money. Two Eminent Irish Gentlemen.

How the Rochester Theaters Are Prepared for a Panic In yesterday ' s issue of the Democrat and Chronicle the results of a reporter's investigations as to tbe safety of the city theaters was published. A full account of tbe exits and means of protection from fire at the Opera House was given. In further pursuance of this subject, which cannot fail to be of interest to tbe theater-goers of Rochester, a reporter called lass evening at the Academy of Music to see what pro tection it afforded its patrons. When Mr. Jacpbs first took charge of the house be put in a system of protection of his own, which he always uses in the fifteen theaters which he controls, and at once gave tbe matter his personal attention. At tbe back of the stage is a water plug with a hose sufficiently long to reach to any point behind the curtain. On either side of tbe stage is a barrel containing forty-two gallons of water and a third barrel of water is placed in the flys overhead. Standing be side each barrel are six pails and tbe stage carpenters under the direction of tbe man ager have been organized into an efficient fire company. Every man knows just where his position is in case of an alarm of fire, and every precaution has been taken to secure prompt service. vv hat Mr. Jacobs considers much more im portant to the safety of the patrons of the Academy, however, are the numerous exits with which the building is provided. Besides the broad stairway, which serves as an entrance are the two exits under the stage which are used at every performance, and the covered iron stairway leading from the gallery to the street. There is also an exit from the stage by which actors and others behind the scenes could easily escape. Every possible precaution is taken to prevent any thing from igniting. I am ready at any time, ' said Mr. Jacobs, ' to see that any additional exits, which may be suggested by Chief Bemisb, or any other authorities. are put in. With our present accommoda tions we can empty the house in four min utes. No automatio arrangement for extin guishing a fire can prevent a panic. It there is a cry of ' fire r people are going to get out of the- building just as fast as possible without waiting for the fire to start any automatic arrangement that wiil put it out. We have provided our bouse with exits enough to clear it promptly and that is really all that can be done. At one time when I happened to be at our Montreal theater a fire was started under a boiler in an adjoining building ; the atmosphere being heavy and tbe flues not having been used for a long time, the smoke poured into the theater. There was a cry of ' fire, ' and of course a panic followed ; but the exits were promptly thrown open and no harm was done. When people are once frightened they won't stop to think about any automatic! pipes for they will at once become frantio and uncontrollable. ' ' Trobably tbe theaters of Rochester are as well protected from fire and have as many and as convenient exits as can be found at theaters in any city of corresponding size. He Selects a Committee.

What the Ladies Are Doing. During these autumn days when the wealth of fruits and grains is being garnered, tbe ladies of tbe various charities which make Rochester famous, are not idle. Un usually busy are the ladies of the Rochester Orphan Asylum preparing for their semi centennial celebration November 10th. They call for $10, 000, a part of which is to pay a debt borrowed from the permanent funds of tbe institution for repairs and heavy local taxes. It seems unnecessary to say anything. except to remind the public of the celebra tion, to insure the amount desired whereby this jubilee yar may be fitly represented in the anuals of the Rochester Orphan Asylum. Tbe Board Denies It. In relation to tbe charges made by Mrs. Margaret Weis against the Excise Board, that body asserts that for the past twelve weeks Mrs. Weis, personally and through friends, has persistently importuned the board for a license, but that she bad been continuously refused, the principal objection to granting her a license being that her place is near a chapel and a large number of the property holders in the vicinity requested that no license be granted her. The Excise Board never accepts money for a license ex cept on the day the license is granted. Mrs. WeU hs paid no money to any member of tbe Excise Board, nor has she made any bond that the board has seen. St. Peter's New Pastor. R,ev. A. J. Hutton, D. D. , the ' newly elected pastors of St. Peters Church, in this city, is expected to arrive in tbe city this morning, aud will occupy his new pulpit tomorrow He preached bis farewell sermon at the ' ' Reformed Cbuich on the Heights," in Brooklyn, last Sunday. The sermon, together with resolutions adopted by the consistory of the church, were published in last Monday's Brooklyn Eagle. Both redound to his prise. It is evident that bis coming to Rochester will be a decided addition to the clerical force of the city. Superheated Water Company. Certificate of Incorporation of the,Rochester Superheated Water Company was filed in the county clerk's office yesterday. The object of the company is to supply heated water and steam for motive power, beating, cookingr, and olbar like purposes. Tbe capital stock is $150,000 aud the number of shares 1, 500. Tbe trustees fur the first yar are : Theodore N; Vail, BoPtbn ; Richard A. Elmer, New York ; Fred W. Kelsey, N. J. ; John W. Martin, Marsunus H. Brlggs, A. G. Yates and John N. Beckley, of this city.

After the afternoon meeting had been called to order by Colonel Gould, Chaplain Carr offered prayer. Corresponding Secretary ELirk made a report of the correspondence he had attended to during the year. Treasurer E. A. Cooley, of Canandai&ua, made a brief report. The report of tbe ex ecutive committee was made by Recording Secretary J. S. Farwell, of North Chili. Historian Kirk reported that fifty-five mem bers attended the last re-union and about fifty new names had been added during tbe year. He said at least 600 subscribers should be obtained before the publication of a suitable history of the regiment would be warranted. Mr. Kirk said he had secured the names of some 900 of the survivors of the regiment, but many of them had not responded to circulars sent them. Major William Noab,of New York, has been elected treasurer of tbe fu&d, and has received over $200, with assurances that over four times that number would subscribe for 'be work. Mr. Kirk detailed the character of the proposed history, and exhibited samples of portraits that will embellish it. During the war over 5, 600 men were connected with the regiment. Chapters of the forthcoming book have been published in tbe Phelps Citizen, and copies of that paper were distributed at the meeting. Lieutenant John Cawtbra, of tbe ' Old Thirteenth, ' was introduced, and spoke of tbe case of Edward Holland, a member of that regiment as well as tbe Fourth New York Heavy Arti.lery, who is serving a life sentence in Sing Sing for a murder committed in a drunken brawL Tbe governor has been petitioned to pardon Holland, Mr. Cawthra said, but has not as yet done so. The deputy sheriff concluded by asking the members of tbe association to sign a petition asking tbe governor to pardon Holland. The members of Company L were constituted a committee to investigate the matter. The venerable Chaplain Carr of Albany was called upon to make a few remarks. He spoke briefly of his connection with tbe regiment and of bow he helped the soldier boys cut years ago. He related several anecdotes, which were received with applause. A committee consisting of H. E. Richmond, T. C. Parkburst, Dr. H. C. Tompkins, R. T. Miller, and J. J. Mclntyre, was appointed to devise means for publishing the forthcoming history of the regiment. A letter of regret was read from Patrick H. Coney of Topeka, Kansas, and then ad journment was taken until evening. The election of officers was put over until this morning. It was 8:15 o'clock when the evening camp fire' was called to order by Colonel Gould. He introduced Mayor Parsons, who was greeted with applause. The mayor said : " It is by no means an uncommon thing for old veterans to assemble in tbe city of Rochester. It has been my privilege on many previous occasions te join with them in their reunions. I have always noticed that our city seems to possess a peculiar facination for them. I am giad that this is so. We owe much indeed, we owe everything to the men who shed their blood for tbe preservation of the Union. Other duties await me, and as the representative of the people I shall simply bid you heartily welcome. In responding on t ehalf of the regiment Colonel Gould said that four oompunies of tbe regiment cauie from Roche 4tr, and tbe survivors telt grateful for the kind words from Rochester's mayor. Dr. H. C Tompkins, regimental surgeon, was called upon. He said that it was bis opinion that the Fourth New York Heavy Artillery was tbe finest regiment that ever stepped foat on the soil of Virginia. It was 2, 250 strong, of tall, well-proportioned men, and excited the admiration of all beholders. The speaker recalled the charge on the works at Petersburg, and said that on that day he and an assistant had charge of ninety wounded men. On that memorable occasion the speaker performed nine capital operations. He was ai. the operating table from noon until nearly mid night, and never recovered from the nervous exhaustion of that day. Surgeons, ordinarily, be said, thought they were doing a t-ig day's work when they performed two or three capital operations. Tbe speaker concluded by reading some verses of his own composition on tbe battle of Reams. Lieutenant H, C. Kirk, of Phelps, read the following original pcem on tbe death t Captain Jim'' McKeel: L'id-rlil!?ppen- to know 'Ptain James McKi W ho fell on th- Weldon road at Reams" Y tld? .iVeU- 1 know no' how you feel! Or how the statement seems: ! , h-7eP aA re'er buckled on the stel Than that same Captain Jim-our Jim McKeel He had been a workman worked in tin Before the war; and his friends that knew Say nope were more skillful at ' soderin And his equa's very few. And it's safe to declare, he thit concmer h. in the stern work of war will b2? "rW8spln?t With Jim- a triple-rtf As sergeant, embroidered bis coat-sleeves bW Like a t rim god cf war he wanted each man To stau i and to wh.)l cn the true; And despite of his feelings so tender and warm. He could be severe, though he never meant bans, Twas a proud, ay, glorious day, with him. When they hailed him captain of Companv A Of the boys from his town who knew Jm -'Jim. " And, knowing him, best knew how to obevt For to know a man never can breed coatempV if from mean, petty vices you find him exempt. Still Jim was no saint, and he would'nt pretend. He would swear Use a trooper when leading And whatever the duty, you could depend Evtry inch of his soul, and his soul was large. Was bent on performing the work to a hair I And his oaths were more righteous than manv & prayer. ' " But once 'twas at Petersburg, there when erim Death. With his myriad demons aloft in the air. Of the battle exulting, drank in the life-breath Cf a hundred of ours tuere Jim didn't swear ThouKh standing alone, looking dea h in the fact When asked why, he said, "Boys, it wasn'tSi place I " One night while returning from Strawberry pla'n VV here letters from home were received and dealt out. Captain Jim got a missive. "What it should con. tarn To make him turn pale, is a matter of doubt. Thoutrh some made a guess, when he quietly gaM ' The next fight I'm in, you'll count me with tha dead I" Tbe next was at Reams, where his battle's mad fate Caught us foul In a death-trap as If by desitrn. JWhen the flashes of fury and thunders of hate Laid the cannoneers bleeding along the whole line. Captain Jim manned the guns with his battery boys; And his voice like a trumpet's rang out midst tha noise "Now, boys, hold her steady I She's rteht: le her go!" ' A And, despite the fierce fire, you remember tlx cheers As the gun he had aimed cleared a path througk the foe How captains and majors became cannoneers, And every man's courage was held at white heat. And every man's gun told his scorn of defeat. As McKeel aimed anew. When. Look there: mv God, Frank" ' And his words like alarum again rent the air " Look, major, the Johnnies have turned our right flank 1" 'Twps his death-knell and ours, that yell of despair ; For a c&nnister tore a huge bole in his breast As the gray coats swarmed on us, aud you know tbe rest. The soft hues of heaven shine bright o'er the land; The echoes of peace float from mountain to shore; The war-clouds dispelled by the patriot's hand, God grant they appear nevermore. Tis the life-blood of heroes the countrv red emj Of the martyrs who fell on the Weldon at Reams.' Colonel James S. Graham appeared and addressed the boys ' ' on behalf of Edward Holland, the man for whom Lieutenant Cawthra spoke in tbe afternoon. Colonel Sherman D. Richardson recited his poem, Hancock at Gettysburg, ' ' and elicited loud applause. Frank Denio, of Bay City, was called upon and read a humorous poem by Daniel Kelly, cited another poem and related bow bs managed to capture one of the enemy's battle flags that of the Forty-seventh North Carolina regiment. In response to an Invitation Theodon Bacon made a few remarks. After telling a story in a very happy mood, Mr. Bacoi recalled the fact that a short time ago b attended tbe eighteenth reunion of bis en a regiment the Seventh Connecticut Infantry. He told how his regiment was used as marines, as artillerists and as engineers, as occcaslon demanded, Mr. Bacon concluded by saying that tht only distinction he ever enjoyed was tbe on he shared with tbe men he was addressing that of having had the privilege o-f being a citizen soldier for three or four years. Hf said the eitizsn soldier bad duties in peace, in discharging his civio duties, no less imperative than those of war. Colonel Burke, of New York, of the 88th New York Volunteers, connected with the celebrated Irish brigade, made a good speech. He said the country could never repay tbs soldiers for their services. Not only does this eountry owe a debt of gratitude to tbs veterans, but the whole world has been benefitted by the valor of the American volunteer of 1861. The speaker believed that the soldiers should stand together and support any one of their number who ran for office. Irrespective of political connection. He aroused a tern peat of applause at tbe close of his speech by saying that no other flag than the star aud stripes should float in the Unittid States, If any foreigner raised the red flag of anarchy here he should be sent back whence bs came. Major J. P. Cleary, senior vice-department commander of the Grand Army of U Republic of this state, was introduced and made a few remarks, commending vt Colonel Burke had said about soldiers standing together.
