Fartiee war organised ia Kinm to bunt tor them and week were spent In the pursuit, but the Benders bad too much of start, and their trail was lost. Four different men and women (apposed to belong to the Bender family have bawl arreatad during the last seven years, but they bars succeeded In proving their identity, and have bean released.

A man named Hooflan, who formerly resided In the Bender neighborhood m Kansas, and who knew ok! man Sender personally, was admitted to-day to the presence of tba prisoners, and identified the man as old man Bender. He la not so positive as to the woman. The woman claims that Mrs. Bender died in J87n, The whereabouts of Kate and John Bender, Jr., has been discovered, and officers are en route to capture them. The prisoners were to have met John Bender to-day in this State. , e TIIE C1T7 REPUBLICANS. '' AM EXTHC8IASTIC MEETtXO HT TBC Tilth ; DISTRICT CAJIPAIGK CLCB8 ORQA5IZED. The lion. W. W. Hick, of Florida, last , evening addressed the Seventh Assembly Dis . Irict Kepublican Association on the issues of the campaign. The audienoa was a large and enthusiastic one, and included several ladies. Among those present were Alderman Morriii, ex-Henator Leut, Dr. John IL forn, CoL James H. Stevens, C. Volney Kin p. Commissioner Van Cott, C. C. Waite, irof. George W.Clarke. Dr. Ilercy, and CoL Henry I). Tyler. Mr. Hicks) who was introduced by Mr. ltobert Curren, the acting Chairman, began his address by saving that he arrived in the City in time to attend the recent Democratic demonstration, and that he availed him-s self of his privilege as a free citizen to listen to, and. if possible, to inwardly digest, the ar- - .guments of the orators on that occasion. He was particularly struck with some very curious things that occurred at the meet-lugs and impressed by the queer sayings that dropped from-' the lips of the speakers. The olwequius of the late lamented Mr. Tiklen were being celebrated. He the speaker had heard of a man attending his own funeral, but here was an instance of the dead man presii ling at his-fjwn .' funeral, and sptaking the eulogy. In Jrvmg Hall Bonn tor Jonas gave expression to sentiments which indicated one Democratic ; tawe of the campaign for which Republicans had looked in" vain in the Democratic newspapers. It was a plain, simple proposition, a proposition which might come from the highwayman when be meets his victim in an isolated place a demand on the jurt of the recently rebellious Mouth to be restored to power. This was the issue Republicans would be forced to meet Senator Jonas did not beat around the buidi ; his expressions were but a manly enunciation of Southern principles. He had coolly doclared that Haucork's famous order made him the nominee of the Democratic ' I'arty and the beloved . choice of the , Southern people. That order, Mr. Hicks believed, was, if nothing worse, the cause of a terrible upheaval and bloodshed south of Mason and Dixon's line. That order, which as issued in Violation of the will of the people l nd of the necessities of the times, made Gen. , I Uncock the beloved choice of the South. One Incident of the Irving Hsll meeting, which greatly astonished Mr. Hicks was the inexplicable hissing which greeted a kindly mention . of the name of Gen. Grant. When he heard those . hisses he forgot that he was in the oyai city of New-York, and felt that be was again among the cracker boys of he everglades. The speaker was gratified to. enow that the Democrat had set the example f importing Southern mn to lead the political fhrht in the Jiorth. He hoped that the National Republican Committee would adopt the - (dan of sending political missionaries to the Southern States. In Florida, at least, they srould get a respectful bearing from both s hite and black men, but it would not be safe io send them to States yielding Demo- - , ;ratio majorities of 25,000 and over. Mr. - Hicks devoted over hall an hour to a defense A the reconstruction system which Senator Jonas, saw fit to denounce. Brief speeches awe made by Mr. Walter M. Chandler, of New-York, and CoL N. K. Sawyer, editor of the Daily Sun and Vest of Jacksonville, Fla. Tha latter gentleman, who was a member of the United States Grand Jury which inves- ti gated the Democratic election frauds of 1878, gave an interesting account of the means employed for the discovery of the frauds and the punishment inflicted on the guilty parties. . The Welshmen of this City are organizing for Garfield and Arthur. An enthusiastic meeting, which waa attended bv upward of - 1UU Welshmen, was held in the basement of ; the Welsh Presbyterian Church, in Thirteenth-street between. Second and Third avenues, last evening. The Pastor of the church, the Itev. G. H. Humphrey, called the meeting to order, and tha Welsh Uartleld and Arthur rampaign club was immediately organised.'

THE FaSTEB'S GAIT STILL 6LOW, BUT. QUITE BCRE DISGC8TZD DOCTORS WHO WONDER WKT HE DOES KOT DIE THEIR BATTERY DRAWS OCT OF LIXE TESTER- day's SYMPTOMS. The predictions of the doctors, announced with such oonfldence on Thursday, that Dr. Tanner, was about to collapse before the completion of his fast, and would probably die within 48 hours, have gone for naught so far, and now appear liter to prove fallacious. Although- his paroxysms of nausea occurred at intervals, and gave the attendants considerable trouble, the fasting man was decidedly better yesterday morning, and continued to improve gradually during the day. Some portion of the improvement was undoubtedly due to the fact that the regimen of mineral water, which was " substituted for the undoctored article on Thursday, was promptly abandoned upon the first intimation of disas-trous consequences ; but the greater part was referable- to the extraordinary self-control' and the almost superhuman obstiuacy with which he Kuppresse every unfavorable symptom. His paroxysms of naiuiea, crampst and vomiting nave been unpreoedentedly violent and painful, but, enfeebled as the man is by more than 30 days of starvation, thry have been endured without a murmur, a moan, or even a contortion of countenance ; anil through them all, urged by the physicians present to take some nourishment and end bin bufTeringK, he has quietly but decidedly refused, declaring that they are lem serious than he expected during the last 10 days of his experiment, and that until hiccough supervenes ho has no intention of alaudmiing lii purpose. He assures them, at the same time, tbatjic bait no intention of putting I lis life iu Jeojwrdy, but that he known the limits of bis own endurance, and proposes to hold on until critical symptoms warn him that natural laws are not to be trifled with any longer. On Thursday the symptoms were so violent that some of the doctors were panic-stricken ; the battery was put in order for the resuscitation of the patient in cuse of syncope; brandy and lieef-juiee were procured, and Tanner waa uryed to submit to remedial measures lefnre it was too late. His confidence waa wholly unshaken by the intimation of half a dozen physicians of the retfular school that, if he persisted, he prol-ably had not 4S hours to live. He iiad, up to 111 o'clock last night, lived out 35 of them, and L afternoon he reclined upon Uis cot within the railing on the main floor, and applauded tha vocal performances of a lady who had offered to entertain him by singing some ballads with considerably more energy than the physicians who had evidently assembled to witness his death agonies. It must not be concluded, however, that he is in no danger, although the physical indications yesterday afternoon evinced a marked improvement. His attacks of nausea aud vomiting still continue, and should sound sleep fail to repair the exhaustion, his condition this mora1 ing will be extremely critical. At midnight on Thursday, wlu-n Lr. R E. Kunze and Mr. H. H. SiMSon relieved Drs. Donelson and Hoffmann, Dr. Tanner whs sleeping quietly, and gave no trouble until 12 :40,Vhen, alter tossing uneasily for a few moments, he awoke and requested the attendants to place the rubber air-pillow under his head. This was done, and he dropped to sleep as quietly as an infant, without taking his regular midnight ration of spring-water. He did not. sleep many minutes before the gastric disturbance which had troubled him all day recurred again, with constant eructations of tras and eenerui uneasiness. This continued for about an hour, and, Unally, at 8:10, terminated in a severe paraxystn of nausea, followed by violent vomiting, which lasted two or three minutes, and left him extremely feeble. The matter discharged consisted of the thick, glairy. mucous secretion of the gastric lining, tinged wjth biliary acids. In quantity it did not exceed two ounces. The diiturliBnce was at last quelled by givingthe patient about two ounces of ice-cold carbonic acid water, which relieved the nausea. In 10 minutes the patient was sound asleep again,' with a deep, regular respiration 1 to the minute to which his attendants have now listened for so many consecutive nights. This time he slept uninterruptedly for 40 minutes, and the clock wis on the stroke of 4 when he roused himself for . the third time since midnight, and asked for something to subdue his nausea. An attendant handed him a glass of carbonic acid water, and, liaving swallowed about an ounce of the liquid, he said he felt lietter. In 10 minutes he was npnin asleep, and this time he lay 4j minutes without the least sign of consciousness. AV4:55 A. M. within five minutes , of his regular hour he awoke, and fell into an easy conversation with Dr. Kunze. His taciturnity had altogether departed; he was as merry and jocular as a man who expected to have his sirloin and coffee served for breakfast within the next few minutes. When asked respecting his health by the anxious attendants, he replied that the unfavorable symptoms had completely vanished, and he expected to pass a very comfortable day. Dr. Kuiize congratulated the fasting ,nian upon his recovery, and .rallied him laughingly respecting the anxiety he had given the doctors on the preceding day. Dr. Tanner said there bad never been the Icaxt occasion for any real anxiety : it - ;ji not to le exected that a man should fast 10 days without gastric inconvenience, and be had actually suffered less from that source than he anticipated. He lay on his cot and conversed upon various topics for an hour and a half, his intellect appearing to be lucid and unimpaired by the violent strain put upon his physical endurance, and his remarks coherent and well connected. At 6:25, his clothes having been examine. 1 by Dr. Goodman, of the regular school, he arose, dressed himself without assistance, and took a few turns to and fro in the gallery for exercise. He then laj- down upon his cot and soon drirpcd to sleep. Mr hen Dr. W. L. Tuttle and Mr. C. A. Marsh relieved Dr. Kunze and Mr. Sisson at 7 A. M.. Dr. Tanner was still sleeping; but at 8 o'clock he awoke and was introduced to Mr. Marsh, until then a stranger to him. When it was .propose! to take his . regular matutinal airing in Central Park, Dr. Tanner said he did not think he would venture it. He was still a little qualmish, and riding was not good for him just now. His tongue was furred, and his step a little uncertain ; but,'' on the whole, he was in better form than his physicians expected to find him after the mortal prostration of the preceding day. At 8:10 he dropped to sleep again, reclining comfortably in his cot, and slept for 30 minutes. He then listened to the reading of the morning papers until 9 :15 A. M., when the mall arrived, and his attendants varied the rirogramme by reading his letters ' to him t was nearly 10 o'clock when, having donned his slippers, he went down stairs and took his regular turns around the main hall, making 25 laps in 18 minutes with the ease and steadiness of a pedestrian. He then swallowed about two ounces of carbonic acid water and sat down at the table and scribbled his autograph in several dainty albums left for the purpose. Visitors now came pouring in with presents of bouquets, fans, and other trinkets and from 10:30 until 13:30 the Doctor reclined upon his cot within the railing, holding a sort of morning levee. At the latter hour he requested the hall to be cleared, and lay down aud, went to sleep. At 2:25 P. M., Dr. Tanner having finished his noonday nap and returned to the main hall, the physical indications were taken. The sphygmogrspbic tracings showed less force and volume than on Thursday, notwithstanding his extreme prostration on that day, and his apparently improved condition yesterday. The pulse was six beats per minute higher than the average for the last week, which has been Ti. His respiration was 14. The right hand waa tested twice witn the dynamometer for muwular strength, registering, respectively, TO and W) kilogrammes. Three testa applied to the left hand registered in succession 7 78, and 80 kilogrammes a very favorable, showing as compared with previous days. His tem-iwrature was 9l" Fahrenheit, about t higher than the average of the seven preceding days, and his weight 1J0 pounds, a loss of 8 ounce during the previous 24 hours. From S o clock until 5 Dr. Tanner remained' down stairs in the main hall receiving visitors and conversing witn them. His mind was apparently clear, and his voice full and resonant Feeling in better condition than for" several days past he concluded to take his usua)( evening ride in the Central Park, but the motion of in camagv maucea a severe attack 01 nausea eramca. which tminttwi ta a paroxysm of vomiting. The partr returned to Clarendon Ball at T o'clock, and at Jit, Tanner retired t kie eoC. At 8 :4fl he had another severe attack of vomiting, wl ich waa relieved by a draught of carbonic ack water. He then fell asleep, and at midnight ras resting quietly, with normal respiration, ulse, and temperature. COBRT'Sl QUEER FiyASCIEBlXG. X99UT30 BOXDS TO BUILD UP BUSntESS A5D REfTBISa TO PAT THEM. MeadviliIe, , Penn., July 29. The efforts of the City Corry, in Erie County, to evade the s consequences of foolish financiering on tie part of its mtinicic pal authorities in 1872, have proved unavailing, and by a decision of Judge McKennon, list delivered in the United States Circuit CouH at Erie, the city will be obliged to ie amount of f 05,000, with interest pay bonds to for seven y edrv and costs of expensive litiga- tion. It is ioubtful if a corporation ever in- volved iteelf In debt under circumstances quite so ridiculous and uncalled for as Corry did iu f its ,bonding scheme of 1872. the matter Certain leading citizens of the place . were exceedingly Anxious to have Corry become the seat of man 'facilities of ti hfttcturing interests, tut as tne tliei s place were not calculated to usurers to come t here, there seemed duce inanufatt no prospect the city being selected for that purMe. ; . tries in the hanv. and Tii-re were two struggling lnaus- ace, the Corry r urmture Uom- the Gibbs & Hterrett Works. In 172 it looked as if their existence was short- lived in Cdrry. In that vear the idea was conceived by some of the citizens referred to, idU'Tments in the form of finan- or orrenng i clal aid to n: nxinufacturing interests to come to Corry. The city authorit Mea was approved by the then es, and it was resolved to bond tho city, and issue the bonds to persons who would estai isil lactones or any Kinl that might prove It was (lis- enencial to the city. discovered that the Constitution of Pcnnsylvani forliade the bonding of cities in the State, exfeji t for the purpose of providing for the pavn had no debt. nt or fun'linij of a debt.

Lo.n'dox, Jul j 16. A busy week all round, the one which oomes to an end to-day ; busy in Parliament ; busy in diplomacy, in society ; busy in the matter qf weather, and altogether a lively week. Mr. Gladstone is demonstrating to the full the truth of the oft-repeated criticism aa to his want of. tact, temper, and administrative Judgment He can sway a multitude, but he cannot manage his party. He knows Homer by heart, but the House of Commons is too much for him. He starts up " three courses" when he should only have one. He : conciliates factions when he should stamp on them. He is fertile in compromises and barren in the resources of great generalship; For so intellectual a man and a statesman of wide, and varied experience he . is singularly weak , in the hard business of keeping a party together and directing a Government. It must be admitted that he has a difficult team to guide. The Irish party has quarreled with him. The Whig Liberals have met to sign a formal objection against his Irish measures, which neithec satisfy the Home Rulers nor content the Whigs. Despite bis majority, he has. been once defeated on a groat division, and his declared supporters are continually in revolt " Another Scene in the House of Commons " is quite a familiar beading in the newspapers. The respect that is due to senators and statesmen is waning: and every now and then the Speaker is treated with as much contempt as if lie was sitting in his pot hat and the mace had been "chucked " under the table. One member has been locked upln the Parliamentary jail, and others have been bidding for similar honors. A few years ego this kind of Parliamentary excitement would have lieen called an Americanizing of our sacred and moss-growd institutions, but to-aay estnunster is noisier than ashing-ton ; to-day the British Parliament is the beargarden of Eurojiean senates. Some people see in all this the incoming of revolutionary changes and national troubles. The situation,, it is to be feared, requires a man with a stronger and firmer grasp than Mr. Gladstone pisesses, and the difficulties at home are complicated once more with the revival of that everlasting trouble, " the Eastern question." TRUMPETS, DRUMS, AND FIRE-DAMP. During tho past few days there has been much coming and. going of dispatches between Constantinople and London, and much conferring of the Russian Ambassador with English Ministers. The Turks and Montenegrins are fighting; the Greeks are ready to fly at the Ottoman throat, and, curious to relate, German influence is assuming weight and importance at the Porte. The Sultan, it is thought, hopes to create a diversion in the Mussulman interest by exciting jealousy and mistrust among the powers. An uneasy feeling has once more sprung up on the Continent, and it comes at a time when we have much holiday soldiering and patriotic speaking. France has had a grand and imposing military spectacle in glorification of the Republic. Germany is preparing for her Autumn manoeuvres. Queen Victoria has reviewed a little army of splemlid troops at Windsor. In short, Europe and Asia both are. parading their arms, blowing their trumpets, and beating their drums. It may all end once more in show and glitter and smoke; but one dav there will be a terrific falling in of allies ana foes, and the world will echo with the din of a mighty war. If science and philosophy had not long since excluded atmospheric phenrmna f i oni tho calculations of political foreca-ts and national disasters, the sudden and strange storms which have afflicted the land during the last few weeks might have had serious omens for oracles and prophets. One of the debates in Parliament a day or two ago was literally stopped by the roar of the wind, the crash of the thunder, and the hissing of tho rain. At tho review on Wednesday, no sooner had the Queen got well away and the people .had started homeward, than a storm of tropical severity fairly shook the towers of Windsor. It is hardly within any one's memory that we hnve experienced such severe storms as these which have fallen upon us this Hummer, destroying crops, flooding the hay, destroying church steeples, cutting down trees, and killing many people. It must be taken as an incident of this atmospheric disturbance that we have a frightful colliery accident in Wales, an explosion of fire-damp which has swept awav in fire and dust over 100 miners, a hideous heap of blackened and charred humanity. A busy week I said ; aye, truly ; for none so busy, for none so sad as tho poor souls in the neighborhood of the exploded pit Yet judging from recent files of the New-York papers, your list of " dear! from sun-stroke " rivals this awful tale of woe at tike RiKoa Colliery. Some of onr local wenther-wise gossips are predicting for England the wave of heat which they say is passing over America on its way to these shores, and one of the evVn ing papers reprints the official notices of precautionary measures from New-York. With laudable alacrity the Lord Mayor has started a Mansion House fund for the widows ami orphans of the dead miners. It is reported that the exact number of this last batch of victims of Fiery-coal getting is 11S1 men and boyj. EDWIN BOOTH TO APPEAR IN LONDON. The weather is hot enough to thin the audiences of the 1 ading theatres, and the St. James's closes for the season at once. Mr. Irving takes his annual benefit next Saturday ; and on Monday the American season, so called, begins at the Gaiety. Mr. Edwin Booth landed at Queenstown, and is making a short tour in Ireland prior to coming to London. Meanwhile, it is a private matter here at present, but may be communicated to you in advance, that negotiations have been opened with Mr. Walter Gooch for Mr. Booth's appearance at the Princess's Theatre. The proposition has taken this shape, that Mr. Booth shall open the newly-built theatre in October, and remain there for a season, only playing such pieces as shall enable Mr. Charles Warner to share the lead with him. If the terms can be arranted, the Princess's season will "open with " Othello,"' Booth plavlng lago to Warner's Moor. London will be considerably astonished when this leaks out ud more so should the idea be realized. In that case Warner will have the opportunity he sighs for, the chance of measuring himself against the great actors, past and present, in the classic rolea of tragedy and comedy! The 8avage Club has decided to invite all the American actors now in London to a breakfast which is to be held at one of the leading hotels. Mr. Berry Sullivan, an active member of the club, is to take the chair. It was at first hoped that Mr. Charles Wckens, the Treasurer, would preside, but many memljers of the club think the occasion will be best met by having an a tor in the chair. Mr. Dickens; I presume, will be asked to propose the toast of the day. Miss Genevieve Ward has abandoned her projected American tour, in consequence of the litigation which New-York claims in the copyright of " Fonret Me Not "' has opened. It is a pity for all parties that the conflicting interests have not been happily settle I. Miss Ward would assuredly have reaped a golden harvest with the piece in the United States. As it is, she will have to be content with the modest profits of a provincial tour in England. She leaves London with her troupe in about a fortnight's time. Mr. Edar Bruce proposed that she shall return to the Prince of Wales's for next season, but no agreement has yet been signed. It is highly probable that Mrs. Bateman, of Sadler's Wells, will send you out a famous phy, with her daughter Isabella as the heroine. This young lady is best known in London for her graceful and poetic interpretation of the young and unhappy Queen in "Charles I." MUSIC AND ROYALTIES, j I suspect the press was not invited to the Grosvenor Gallery on Thursday night or else the amateur evening concert which filled Bond-street with carriage and the gallery with royal and distinguished guests was probably a private affair, from a journalistic point of view. The JCourt newsman, however, has chronicled it in a few official words, among a rvytu r-Tt-nm ox me weea. it was a interesting gathering. The main, object was to aid the funds of "The People's Entertainment Society: " the next, to add to the social attraction of the seaeoo-wUcb. haa been aa xceptionallv gy one. The Queen waa pres eat this week at a garden party given at HarW borons Hooaa. and her children bar been thevery life and soul of aristocratic:' reunions In London ever since the now waning Mason set in. Sir Coutta Lindsay and his aocam- Eusnea ; wire, imj Lindsay, (ot rialcarrea,) sve contributed greatly to the social pleasures of 4he ; time. The concert on Thursdav night waa under the immediate patronage of tne iuaea oi rxiinrjurgn and Uonnaugut 1 and their royal wives, and the Princess Mary of Teck, the Duke or Teck, the Count Gleichen, and the Countess Gleichen. It was held in the principal gallery, the other rooms - being thrown open for refreshments and pTomenaa- mg. ine awning over tne outer portals ana the red cloth running into the street were sig nals me loiterers ouisiae unaerstooa, ana when one arrived ever so early there was a crowd to seethe Prince and Princess of Walea Their royal highnesses came soon after the concert began, and were received by Sir Coutts Lindsay and Lady Lindsay, who are especial iavontes at court, as well they may be, who are backed by blood, by talent by money, And by right gentle courtesie," ine company rose as the ITince and Prin cess entered. The royal pair had shaken bands with 8ir Coutts and Lady Lindsay at the door. They bowed to other ladies and gentlemen whom they knew. Lady Suffleld was with the Princess. Sittine down with Lady Lindsay, the royal guests listened to the concert, wuich aid not begin until 10 o clock, and it was now 10 :S0. Lady Folkestone was down on the programme to sing. An apology had to be made for her. She had been taken ill Her place was filled by the addition of other ladies ana gentlemen to the programme. and Mrs. Ronalds also exerted herself to make the void seem nothing. Sirs. Ronalds is an American lady, who has made social con quests at home and abroad, in Pans and in London ; she has a rich, sympathetic voice, and sings delightfully. Mr. 'James H. Peter, Miss Brough, Miss Wakefield, Mr. D'Egville, Mr. Wade, Mr. Bethune, and other amateurs of note occupied the platform and acquitted themselves with considerable success. Their efforts, however, did not excite enthusiasm, and there were no encores. At 11 o clock the company rose again to receive the Duke and Duchess of Connaught and at 11:30 the concert was brought to au end with Balfe's sparkling trio from "Fatetnff." The royal iarty, in due form of precedence, then left the concert-room to be the guests at supper of their pleasant host wheeler. It wos a calm, starlight night, and as iar as you couIJ see either way in Bond-street the lamps of society's carriages flared and glittered like lower sturs mocking the lights in the Summer" sky. The Prince of Wales ! is no mere carpet prince. A few hours pre viously ne was riding at tne Bead of his regiment in a mock eharee at Windsor.

It was only known to a few that the salo by auction, at Robinson At Fisher's, in Bond- street, yesterday, of original sketches by H. K. Browne. illustrating ' Nicholas Nickleby," and the illustrations of other works of Dickens by Maboney, &c, was a partial distribution of the art treasures of Mr. Fred Chapman, late of Chapman & Hall, by order of the liquiilating lrusiee. i nere were aoout ijii lots of books, china, and pictures, and after them a curiously interesting collection of Thackeray's original illustrations of ' Mrs. Perkins's Ball." Thev averaged about 12.5 each, with the exception of a set ot luree m one rrame " jady Bacon, the Misses Bacons and Mr. Ham, Grge Grund-sell, the Mulligan, and Mrs. Perkins' and on the back of them was a short manuscript story. The handwriting of the great author, accompanying his own pictorial work, excited a brisk competition, and the prize was knocked down for $100. The whole of the original drawings bv Green and Ma honor, illustrating " The People's Edition" of " The Old Curiosity tfhop," " Our Mutunl Friend," and ' Little Dorrltt" were sold. They were 150 In number, and the artists bad received from tho publishers about $5 for each of them, for photographing on the wood, which is now the general engraving process. In the old days the original drawing was lost, having to !x done on the wood anl cut away by the engraver. The 150 averaged about $5 each, which was considered to be a fair price, though "when the works come to he distributed about ami sold singly by the d!ers they will no doubt sell for five or even ten times these sums. It was interesting to see Charles Dickens bidding for these gems of art which had Wn inspired by bis father's genius. The Bond-street, Piccadilly, St. James's, and other collectors seemed rather stimulated in their biddings than otherwise when t bey found who was opposed to them. But the lot which excited mobt attention was the sketches of H. K. Browne I" Phiz ") Illustrating ' Nicholas Nickleby." There wore 37 of these. Some of them were enhanced in value by manuscript notes from the pens of Browne and Dickens. The auctioneer stated that since the publication of the catalogue tho Trustees desired they should be put up in one lot, in which case he should name a reserve. Several gentlemen, authors, publishers, and col-lectors,objected to this course. There were many admirers of Browne and Dickens present, who only wanted a single example of the original work, and they considered it unfair that thev should be deprived of the opportunity which th'o salheld out to them. A dealer offered f:J50 for the lot. The auctioneer said that was not near his reserve, and having elicited a bid he would now sell the treasure separately. Some of the sketches realized asimuch as $50, but they averaged about $15 to t'-tt each. There was a large collection of valuable books, which fetched full pri.-es, proliably on account of the increasing demands for standard English editions from American booksellers, dealers, and speculators. A CHUIiCIl este'rtalxment. A very pleasant musical entertainment was given at the Union Tabernacle, in Thirty-fourth-street, near Eighth-avenue, last night. The large basement of the church was filled with ladies and gentlemen, and the performances of the instrumental and vocal musicians, all amateurs, were received with cordial applause. It was the first concert and sociable of the Union Talernacle choir, and was directed by Mr, S. Turney, the organist of the church. Members of the Amatori Society, of New-York, and other volunteers assisted, and the programme was varied and carefully prepared. Among those who took part in the entertainment were Mr. and Mrs. John A. Link, Miss Maude Mil- purn, airs. n. ll. Kmc, James Bec kett, and Miss Jessie Younger, a dnet, " La Baland lUDWr.

At the conclusion of the concert Mr. Mingins made a brief address replete with witticisms, in which be called attention to the fact that the receipts accruing from the sale of tickets were not for the benefit of the church, but were simply to pay for the ice-cream and other refreshments furnished for the occasion. If there was aiiy thing left over it would go toward the purchase of music and an ieeYoler for the choir. "This sociable entertainment was," he said, "one of several that woulf be given during the year." The Union Tabernacle was bought by Mr. F. A. Palmer, of the Broadway Bank, a short time ago, ami was established as a church, free to all denominations, under the min.rtration of Mr. Mingins, about three months ago. It is supported bv voluntary contributions, and is quite prosperous under its new management nearly l,(OJ persons attending servn-e.
