Half past three o'clock yesterday waa tha boar appointed for the opening of tba ceremonies connected with tha niiveIUn& but at time it waa apparent that the 11,1)00 provided by the Park Commlstdun- are to accommodate tha spectators were not half sufficient to meet tha require-asenta af tha Immense and constantly-increasing altitudes. The programme waa well conceived aad eareated. Tha members af the Faast Club, a Urge representation of tba wealthiest . citizens of Brooklyn, tha Park Commiaaioners aa representing tha people, and about COO children of the prildle ' arhools, proceeded in procession to the base of the nsannment a few minutes after 3:30 P. mean- while the aptendid band of the Twenty-third Begi-asent, commencing the musical programme with ntoasini's overture " Semlrainhi." The air " A tm-ri-aan waa then rendered by tba children in excellent style, and immediately on its condom on the veil was withdrawn from the bot amid loud and eon. stoned cheering. Tbe adlressr which are append-ad were then delivered, alternated with the render-lag of many popular and operatic selections by the band. ' .Among those present on the platform were Mayor Powell, S. L. Hosted, Isaac Van Aoden. W. C. Xingaley, W. F. Fewler, Judge Pratt. S. R. Fisk, J. W. Hunter, H. n.JWneeler, H. W. Whitelow, President Board of Edncation F. S. Smith, E. Lamb, J. ' W. Carroll, and a host of artists and literary men. Mr. Tbomae Kinsells, on behalf of the Faust. Club, in a formal address delivered the bunt to th e Park Commiasionera for the people of Brooklyn. - Hon. 3. S. T. Stranahan, President of tbe Park' ' Commission, replied aa follows! TSe. TaTilnRKT axd Ckktlmft of ma Faust Club or HaooaLra : The Park Commbtsion, repre-anting thia city and speaking for all the people, gratefully accept the monomentai rift which your fenerooity has furnished, and which, by tbe eeremo-jpjis o U e hour, is trahiiferred to ita possession and fatara keeping. The splendid burt jaht nnveiltd, so complete aa a work of art, and so true to life, will hereafter be one of the attractions of Prospect Park, while paying a becoming tribute to one eo well do- : ' nerving, not hitherto so little known to famei John Howard Pavne. thongh a man of brilliant fnenira-tiocia and lofty geoiuvlid not in life, except within a limited circle, command the attention he deserved. TJnnke his oon temporaries and companiona, Irving. - Morris, Willis, Cooper, and; others, whose namea have so I n; been familiar to tbe popular ear, he waa for tbe moot part an known, perhaps. I miieht say, even Leglected by nis countrymen. Thousands and tens of thousands have been charmed with one of the finest and aim-pleat products of hia pen : " Home, Sweet Home," . with scarcely any knowledge of the man who gave it Birth. His uterarv career began in a foreign land, while he was yet iu euuipuraUve youth. It ended at last on an in boepi table shore. Such sometimes is the seeming ill-fortune of genius. Of the charaeter-sties of his mind, the moral qualities which endear-. d him to his friends, the range, and merit of his literary productions, others will speak to you on this occasion. Tbe duty imposed on me is mainly aeextnplixbe 1 ia receiving at your hands this bunt. ' so fitly located, sarronndod by and associated with the scones of pstitoral life, and by ita very aituation uggeating the quiet and reposo to Which, thongh -raiuJy sought by him, be gave expression in tbe ten-dereat stratus of song. - You have, gentlemen of the Faast Club, evinced a deli rate and appreciating dis- ' crimination in selecting John Howard Payne aa the nan who deserves this commemorative honor.' His will hereafter be mora familiar to tha pen- Tbe occasion naturally reminds ns of the limited extent of such eilbrta in this country to do honor to snen of mark, while the increasing demand for park (rounds as pliers of popular recreation and enjoy-SBent suggests the fitting receptacle of these- visible mnmnriala of departed greatueaa. The elaaeie nations of olden times gained much for themselves, and have contributed much to the pleasure of the world by such public recognition of their illustrious dead. Art waa encouraged aad developed thereby, aad tha tastes of the people elevated. ven to this - aUy many of these works still remain as unrivaled naodels of perfection and beauty. Modern Europe1 ban long since caught tbe inspiration supplied by the example of the ancients. Her cities abound "Sritb tba prwJocUaB af art, many of una designed to keep ta memory and make familiar to the people the namee of her scholars, poets, sMiera, and statesmen. Wi have men of genius in this country.

In making tba circuit of tbe Park, hia era will fall upon she bust of tha illustrious Washington Irving, the "historian and scholar. - If be shall repair to tua retired and quiet scens of rural life the boat of lohn Howard Payne will arrest his notice and become his teacher. I trust that tha work af enriching' thia yloaisrti rnrnnii with such moneunenta haa samply twicsn As the years roll sway their number ahould and will be increased, till at length tbe best charao-teristie of Prospect Park will consist in memo rials placed here in honor of those whose career has been fraught with blessing to their coon try and tha world. .. t Mr. John O.

THE HEW CJTT l'XISOX. A cotmnittM consisting of Ex-Alderman Kodde, Dr. F. See gee, M. Schreakeieen, and Gen. Stelnbrecher, appointed at a public meeting Jmld last week la German ia Assembly Eooms, in opposition to tbe project of tba new City PrUony called trpoa Controller Green, at bis office, yesterday' afternoon. to urge bim to exert hia influence as. a Commissioner to prevent ita erection. x-A Merman Badde said la behalf of tbe Commit tee, that the proposed new City Prison waa unneces sary, unwise, and impolitic Tba tax-payers bad a sufficient burden to bear already, without this ad ditional one, and It ahould ba tba desire of the City official la thia, aa In other matters, to prevent any further imposition of weight. The present site and building of tha Tombs would answer all purposes for many years to coma, if proper alterations were made. Ha had examlnod,4ba Tombs, aad be- I lieved that tba whole coat of Auch aeodful repalra I i uMuinMtiiJUtlWI I ' The new City Prison waa, ba said, one of .those Jobs so frequently initiated by tha Legislature, aad would be a fruitful source of corruption, like the new County Court-ho use, and ba an expense to tbe City. Its site was an Improper one, and a large pe tition of property-owners against its selection had been presented to the Board of Aldermen, who concurred with them ia tha propriety of remonstrance. Controller Green, in reply, said that be waa not acquainted with the motives of the framere of the act for tba new Prison, but had unexpectedly found himself clothed with certain powers aa a Commis sioner. Tha originators of the project my have expected by their friends to control ita erection, but by the course cf events it had fallen into the hands ef Ma vor Hsvemever, President Vance,' and himself. Tbe public did not suspect that their management was likely to be similar to that of the Court-house Commissioners under the Ring regime. There was no Jobbery in the project now, but a auit-abbvbuilding, with ample accommodations for the criminal courts and for the detention of persons awaiting trial, wonld be built as speedily, as economically, and as judiciously as the operations of the law will permit. Its provisions. were peremptory, requiring tie selection of a new alto within ninety days alter ita psanage, and the sale of the Tombs, at public auction to the highest bidder, within six months after tbe completion of the new prison. He had pointed out the fart in a lengthy report 5 resented to the Prison Comniuuuon on the iifctb of uly last, that tbe Tombs would, with the adjoining blocks occupied by the Xew-Hsven and Harlem Depot and the Elm Street Arsenal, have sofficedfur all the prison needs of the City for tbe next fifty years but IJlC Commissioners were obliged -by chapter 535 of tbe fowl of IcTJ to proceed with tbe erection ef a new building without regard to their individual views of the availability of the old one. Tbe gentlemen of the Board of Aldermen, who are now so strenuous in their opposition to the nieanhre. unanimously adopted, on the 27th of last March, a report of their Committee of Public Works, condemning the Tombs, advising the erection of a new prison, and recommending the passage of the very bill then before tne Legislature, whose operations they now wish to defeat. Some of tbe members ot that Committee are to-day actively opposing tbe law, although tbey could not fail to snow uiat it is mwi uuiibiuijt iu mm fiiui wvui, Tbe site bsd been chosen deliberately and with great care. .Every available location nad been examined bv him Dersonallv and by others, and there waa none more convenient, accessible, and advantageous than the one bounded by Bayard, Mott, Canal, and Elizabeth streets. The property wss of moderate value, and, aa the buildings were of a very inferior description, small comparative expenses wonld be incurred in their removal. The opposition of the property-owners ia tbe vicinity, who were the signers of the petition, should be considered, although it would occur aa well elsewhere if a different site had been chosen. The right of eminent domain in such instances requires that the public interests shall prevail over the individual and private ones. TEE XEJT PARK THEATRE. The new theatre on Twenty-second street and Broadway, to be built for Messrs. Stuart aad Bouci-cault, by Mr. Parse 11, a full description of which appeared la Thx Tutsa of tbe 31st ot May last, ia bow in a fair way to completion. It was originally in. tended to have the theatre ready for tha public early in October, but an unforeseen hitch in the arrangements a few weeks age rendered it possible thai the theatre might never ba opened at all, Mr. Pur sell had purchased tbe lota for tba sits of tha building y months ago, and the work of digging oat for the foundation had commenced when, about July last, it was thought necessary by the architect, Mr. Draper, to include an adjacent lot of ground, ia order to give ample stage-room, J&c This tot originally belonged to Wm. M. Tweed, but the process of litigation bad rendered tha proprietorship of It so extremely doubtful as to 'prevent it being bY alfy'meana'a aafe speculation. Thia difficulty, for a time, caused a dead lock in the arrangemonta, aad the engagementa already made with artists, ata, by Messrs. Stuart and Boucicanlt were about to be canceled. Another lot of ground, equally eligible wltb that Known aa TweeoTs lot, however, came into the market, waa purchased, aad the work on the building resumed. All the artists, not already engaged elsewhere, have been re-engaged, and preparations for tha oneninff. now announced lor Ueoemoer. are in grogTeat. The work on the building ia beingj rapidly pushed forward, and xJecemner next does not seem too early a date for the opening.
