A portion of tbla water ia stored In tba Crolon Lake, a reeervoir having an area I 100 acrea and a depth of lii feet. The capacity t tbe lake la about 600,000,000 gal ona. It la aituated about Ova milea below the confluence of tbe Muacoot River with the Croton. The water from the lake ia conveyed to tba City through an aqueduct 40X mtlea In length. Formerly it entered tba Distributing Reservoir on Muiray Hill at once, but tbe increasing growth of the dry aoon rendered it neceaaary to provide atorage rea Tvolra.

Tet kad the aupply of Croton filled, the Water Commissioners would not have -been to blame in the Matter. Bo early aa 18A3, tbe Commiasionera nrged so the Legislature tba importance of providing .atorage reaervolra in the Croton Valley. It waa ebown that during the dry months the minimum ow ol water in tbe Croion Biver waa only 92,000,000 gallons per day, and that tba actual consumption in the City waa very nearly 80,000,000 gallona. In order to aupply tbia deficiency the water in the Croton Le bad to be oaed, but aa tba bottom of tbe aoeduct ia 11 feet loaer than Ibe Up of the dam, and as a depth of ei foot ia the aqueduct ia neo ea-eary to furnish the amount of water required' In tbe fniy. it will be aeen tbat tbe lake cannot be drawn f own lowor than 7 feet. In the dry Bummer of 1804. tke lake waa lowered 4 X feet, and in 18GS about 5 ftset. After some year of unsuccessful application, she Legislature, at ita aeaaion in 1865. condescended lo consMer whether or not New-Turk, with Ita hundreds of thousand of lnhabitanta, should be (up-, hed with tbe requisite amount of water, or whether H abould ba left in danger of Having that aupply cut Off during the time it waa moat needed, namely, tba pot months. After a great deal ol urging tbe Legie-iaiure in April, 18GS, paaaed a bill empowering tbe Croion Aqueduct Commiaaloners to acquire landa In Nasai County for the construction of a a orage " aassrvoir. amt OF TBS MW RKSEBVOm.

THX tDUTOU. In order to eonatruct the reeervoir It became aaoee-aaxy for the City to purchase 440 et res of land. laia waa ootvned at a cost of $100 per acre, aith the sx-eeptiou ol a farm of 75 acrea wbicb. in order to avoid sWiay, waa uurouaaed at tbe owner'a valoauon. Tbe total cost of las land, including leee, waa $66,000.

In 1867 and 1868 the then Chief Eugineer of the Croton Department, Mr. alxbeo W. Craves, bad an accurate survey of the a bole croton Valley made. Tba vaiiey coin prises an area of 33V miles. It was lound that there are therein seventeen aitea availa ble for tbe construction ot atorage reeervoira. b:X or aeven of tbeae sites have been mapped out, and wnenever it becomes neceaaary to tncreaae tbe water aupply ol the City, all that will be need-! will be an acioi the Legislature to enable the Cotntuia-sioners to obtain ths neceaaary landa. 1 nut it seems tbat with a chain of tbeae reaervoira, wiiir-ti can be Increased to an almoat illimitable exteni,,New-Yurk need uot tear that her Croion will ever ruu short.

OPEBATIOH OF THE BE8EBT0IB, It la expected that tbe reeervoir will not be ready for uae until the Bummer ot 1870, uuieas the contractor put a good deal more eucigy Into tbe work. When completed tbe manner of opera ion will be aa follows: During tbe Spring and early part oi Summer the reeervoir will be lult, and the' waier will flow over the dam end follow ita accustomed coarse down the river. At the streams dry up and the quantity ot a:er flowing down the at ream aud into the aq ie-ouct Deoouiea uimiuiahed, tbe gates in tne dam ot the b orate lteaervoir will be opened gradually, and auCkleiu water allowed to escape to ket p tue Croton Lake at it, proper level.

Yesterday afterxcon an immenae audience hered in Ibe Ho Misaion Booms, New l'owery, to formally welecme the Eupenniendenl Rev. W. C. Tan Mltet: who but recently returned to this City after a lengthy European tour. The kachera and scholars of tbe ltsUtuacn were present In large numbers, and several prominent metropolitan clergymen were also there. In a lengthy but very intereaticg address, delivered Immediately after tbe opening ex rcieea, Mr. Van Uleteb expreaaed bia gratitude for the constant aympathy and affection of hia follow laborers, and their untiring cooperation with him in bia efforts to establish en a permanent baaia a model International Borne for Little WanJerera. He apeko, also; ol tbe longing of his heart to return to bis field of labor again. Be regretted that he could at present only glance at a few things, but said that he was carefully preparing a lecture, tn which would be condensed the moat important experiences and observations of hia fourteen years' work anions the children of the street, and hta visit to the hospitals, prisons, reformatory, protective, charitable and other institutions of Rome and oilier European cities. After these introductory remarks he proceeded to speak of Europe aa he found it on hia la.e tour. He said that be had been to Naples, examined its hospitals, aajluma, schools and trisons; had visited Puteoll. where St. Paul landed; drove around the country, through groves of orange, lemon, fig and olive tree ; wandered among the rums of Pompei; climbed Vesuvius and stood on tba edge of the crater during three erro prions, which made tbe mountain tremble, while tba lava poured down He aide not a hundred a rpi from him. Almoat every mile of the Journey frcm there to Borne was marked by a monument of aoma kind, reminding one of some important historical event. He visited Rome, not so much to see the ruins of ber departed mag nificence and glory, aa to witness tbe effect of Roman Catholiciam upon those who received 'ha word of the Pope and the decrees of the Bomiah Church as more binding than the Bible llielf, and who dared not question the inMlibillty of the Church or ctddom ita power. TheiT, be aaid. be saw fa witherfne. blte-br-inw euree. Ic bad roobed tbe people of eivil and re. h sir ua liberty, and ernahed Uim beneath a load of ignorance and auperetition. They believed what tbe mesi tenant, oowever aDaurd. (Toer rendered homage to the bonea and garments which they were told once belonged to some whom they elled Sainta. They worshipped tbe 8aints more frequently nd devoutly tban tbey did the Saviour. As an illustration of ibis fact, be recited tha following, copied from the official liat of rellea in thn Church of St. Praxldet Tooth of Bt. Peter;" " Finger of St, Philip;" "inn of St. Barnabaa;" A part or the awaddling clothes In which ths Saviour waa wrapped at hia birth;" "The reed that bora tbe sponge;" " One of the atones tbat killed Stephen;" M af oeee' Rod." In the Church of t. Maria Magglnre tbey ahowed the cradle of oar Saviour and soma of the hay upon wbicb ha waa laid in tba manger. In the Cburch of St. Crooa, among other relies, are " Three piece of tbe true Cross;" Oae of the nails;" "Tha title which Pilate placed on the Cross;" " A part of tha seamless vest of Chris';" A . piece of tha atone upon which tb angel stood at tb Annuncia:lon ;" "A piece of the Hon upon which tbe Saviour eat when fasting in tba Wilderness;" A part of tba vail and hair of the Virgin;" "A bottl. of Christ's blood," and "A 'bottle of tbe Virgin's milk." Tbeae, and other things thousand rimee more absurd and ndi-euJoua, they were taugb t and believed. Roma contained a population of 178.600 to 200,000. Tbe intelligence and the enterprise of the people were aeen in tbe fact that they had but two daily newspaper, each of which waa about the sire ot cne page of our leading City Journal a. The morality of tbe people coo Id be aeen in tb fact tbat every fourth child born there waa a child of ahama. To work more effectually upon tba euoeratluon of the people, aud to indue tbem to adopt tbeae children of ahame. the priests and Buna assured Uiem ot extraordinary merit, and also of tba special and eternal bieaaing of tbe Holy Mother, who. aa tbey pretended, felt more tban ordinary interest in a 1 children not born In lawful wedlock. Because of ihta, they eOled tbe child fgUa 4lia Madonna child of tba Virgin. Ia Florence tb great pr son snd tba alins-houao were more wisely and humanely conducted than any other ha aaw In Europe.

The Temperanee Society of the Foreyth- etreet Methodist Episcopal Cburch. held a monthly meeting yesterday afternoon, which waa '.very well attended, there being a larger audience, perhaps, tban at any pre ri oue gathering. The Pastor. Bev. F. Baoww, presided, and after offering prayer, made a brief address, appropriate to the occasion. There were, he stated, 21,000 liquor saloons, while there were onlv 6.000 ministers of the Gospel, in tbe State of New-York, Enough money wa spent for 1 quor in the United State last year to pay one-half of the entire National debt, under tbe burden of which our people were Buffering immeasurably. Tbia City he thought was growing worse, continually; the churches were not making any material protrrcea indeed several were losing ground, and much of this unfortunate condition of religious affaire waa to be attributed to the indifference of ministry and laity upon the temperance question. Mr. CnacscET Shaft, a well-known member of the legal proletaion c f the Citr, waa tnen introduced. In commencing, he spoke of hia observations of the habits of public men at Washington, while on a viait to that city In June last. They drank in'oxicatlng liquor to such an extent that he oecame greatlv disgusted witn the bsoir. and then vowed that be would never, Ood being bia helper, taate aa a beverage anything tbat would intoxicate; and lie expressed the hope tbat the aolemn pledge would never be broken, lie next dwelt at length upon the poiaonous nature oi the drinka of this day, and tbe generally deceptive character of tbe liquor triffic It was, thero.ore, dangerous, ue aaid, for rom to Crick so.rltuius liquors. The fact tbat rum destroyed tue bodiea of its victims was shown in the circumstance that over 8.000 persons -die annually intniaCHyby drinking aicohohc beverages. This practice toroatenei ulao the very existence of our republic, aud ihe time bad c. me when men should, atop it. But beside tuo fact that drinking waa tbua dangerous, it was also unnecceeary. The custom foirud a beginning in many caeca with feelings of exbaustiou and w irinf , or it might-be despondency, but the u of kt.ruulanUs under auch Condi. lone only make Ml worse, and uieu ought never to indu ge the ina Juoua temptation. A tteuer and aater remeoy for the wearied or templed one would be found in the deligbiml aurroundinga of home, and those should be scugbt inatead of the aa-loon. In conclusion be apoke of tbe means by which th'sev.lof intemperance might be abated be did not believe that it could be entirely eradicaicd from tiie world. Legislation on the subject woutd be utterly useless, nn'ess supported by an educated cub-he sentiment, and tbia muat be created by the efforts ctallgood men. Toe young abould be especially looked aiier. Pleasant reading-rooms, debating societies and similar pure associattona ahould be or. ganisad in tne City to draw young men away from vice oy attracting them to virtue. Ibe thorough education ot tne young in this manner, be luaisied, cu J save tbe masses aud make this a bet er wur.d. lue meeuug waa diauitoeed alter a number cf per-aona bad aigned tbe pledge.

For some time past Alois Abnoltz, a Frenchman.

He has, however, been in ill health, and of lata haa been despondent, although ao far aa known no ona ever beard htm express a desire to die.
