About everybody in Buffalo and vicinity knows that one of the largest and finest establishments, ol the kind in Western New-York is . the hat and fur store of Messrs. Chtwe & Comstock, at Nos. 15, 7, and 19 Swan street, corner of Washington street. At all times this spacious and handsome More is filled with ihe very best of goods, for Ihe enterprise ami ttste of the proprietors are quite proverbial, but perhaps at the present more than "at any olher season it the display especially attractive, and particularly in furs.' No belter seal goods can be had anywhere in the country. The firm directly import th " London dyed " skins, and have them njade into garments on their own premises antfunder their on personal tupervison. The result is that their sacques and dolmans are of unsurpassed elugance, and perfect in style and fit. The fur.lml gar. menls, of the most approved Parisian patterns, are too of Ihe most attractive descriptions, arW with the large variety of styles of goods pertaining to the line, Mctsrs. Chase & Comstock' present stock may I be declared the most complete and best they have ever offered to the people. i ' Our reader should call at the establishment and judge the good for themselves. Tbe ladies will certainly find it to their interest lo do so before con cluding a piycliose of anything in the tur lilie. Nor need our lady friends cast aside their furs which bave become somewhat Worn or faded,, far Messrs. Ctuse St Comstock have unsurpassed facilities for re-dyeing and lengthening seal tacrine, and repair ing other fur gbods as well." This work they do promptly, kt the best manner, and at the lowest possible prices, rt .r . i ! - . . 1.

Another of those anmiitibeable dernonttratiort for which the Republicans of this State are becoming fa moo took place yesterday at Lancaster. It was thought that the inclement stale of the weather wouYd bave militated to a considerable extent, against the gathering of anything likefi throng, but the contra rr was the case, and it oofy demonstrates bow thoroughly the country districts are srocsed to the extgeTices of the coming conteit. According to the original programmeySimeeling was lo have been held in the af icrnoon s well as in the evening, and the Hon.'ShennanS. Rogers was on band to deliver an add res, bat the downpour prevented this feature from beine carried out, hence the enthusi asm of the cititens from far and near was held undeTTestraint until the evening. ' - i i ; The arrangements were carried out by Mr. Chats, W. Follei, Dr. James, Mr. C. R. Vaughan, the editor of the Lancaster Timts, Mr. George Bingham. the President of Ihe ' Garfield and Arthur Club, Mr. Jacob Gotlschalle, Marshal. : Messrs. Frank James and Frank Green Assistant Marshals, Mr. Adam Gets. First Lieutenant, and Mr. Albert llattlcr, Second Lieutenant. ' Shortly sfier seven o'clock the Bormanirille Boys in' Blue, tighly strong, under the command of Cap. tain Win S. Hutchinson, arrived fa wagons at the of? the Erie Railway. Next came the Ln- cas,er representatives, headed by their drum corps, to Ihe number of one hundred and fifty, under the command of Captain Henry Kientz, and accom panied by the Cowlesville Comet Band. They were followed by one hundred and fifty Boys from Clarence under the leadership of Captain Tobias Berry. ' Shortly afterwards a special train from Buffalo brought about three hundred and fifty members of the Young Men's Central Republican Club, with Chinese lanterns. They formed in line under the direction of Messrs. James C. Fuller ton, Wil liam ifazcr, and Alfred Daw. As soon as all wert ready, a grand torch-light procession through the ptincipal streets was 10 order. . r Tbe line of march wis down Railroad street to Main, op that thoroughfare to Glass-factory street, down that street to Franco, up Franklin to Church street thence to Main, and up that stree' to tbe grounds surrounding the residence of Dr. Van Duzee, where a countermarch was made, and tbe re turn was througb Main, to Mook't grove, where the meeting was held. The order of procession was as follows: The Cowlesville Band, tbe Lancaster Boys with torches, the members of the Young Men's Central Republican Club with their drum corps, the Clarence ' representatives, and the Bow. msnsvilie isoys m mue. niier tne procession naa proceeded a tlioit distance, it was joined by eighty Boys in Blue from Elma, under the command of Captain Joseph Mooney; a delegation from Cheek, towaga, commanded by Captain x Henry Teele; ninety West Seneca Boys in Blue, under the leader ship of Captain Charles Schoeplin, and'a deputation from Amherst, commanded by Captain John Seven- case. Ihe; whole line 01 route was occupied oy crowds of pedestrian's of both sexes, and the Republican residents displayed their loyalty by brilliantly Illuminating their bouses. Among them oar re porter noticed those of Mr. Charles W. Fuller, Dr. F. II. James, Mr. William H. Van Duzee, Mr. G, W. Harris. Mr. S. T. Draper. Mr. Philip Guetlich, Mr. E. F. French, Dr. S. Potter, Mr. John Booth, the Rev. Win. Waith, Mr. Myron B. Clark. Mr. C C. Clark, Mr. II. Thatcher, Mr. VV. J, Palmer, Mr. Henry Bingham, MissYurann, Mr. Alexander Flett, Mr. John L. Ronser, Mr. John Romcr, Mr. Jacob Erb, Mrs. Drykska, Mr. Ira Sleeper, Mr, Samuel Bruce, Mr. A. D. Porter, Mr. De Forest Baker, and Mr. Jasper Clark. I j As the procession moved along the eflect tt-as very brilliant, and as it countermarched on the grounds of Dri Van Duzee the tout enj'etljpe presented, from a short distance, a picture rarely wit nessed. The enthusiasm was almost unbounded. and cheer after cheer went up for, Garfield and Arthur. The wonder was that so large a Concourse of people could be mustered in so small a village. In due time the grove, a rural, picturesque spot, was reached. Here a great crowd had assembled, and it was, of course, augmented, by the Boys in Blue until at least tout thousand people were piesent, Good order prevailed everywhere. A temporary plalfotm had be in erected from which to address ibe meeting which was called to order by Dr. James. Thu "306 Glee Club sang "Ready Bovs, and were rewarded with a burst of applause. The Hon. Edmund F. Pitts, of. Medina, the speaker of the evening, ias then introduced. In a stirring speech he dealt in a. very lucid and telling manner of the main issues of the presidential cam paign.' In conclusion be said it was he duty of the . Republicans t - - work' as . they had never worked before, and to do that work with a wil). If they did their duty they woud carry pie. election. All tbit was asked. was an honest election" and a fair, count. The hour must come when every citizen sliottld have the privilege to vote the.tirket of hU choice, j He then bade them God's speed la the fight, and begged them to see how large a ma jonty they could give; the Republican party and thus break at once and forever the solid South. If they worked on with will they would win as great a victory as Grant won at Appomattox. f . . As Use speaker retired cheer after cheer; rent the air, and when silence was in some degree restored several" tongs were sung by Ihe Glee Club, i Tbe meeting closed with llrree vociferous cheers for Garfield and Arthur. J MEETING THIS IVEN1NO, The members of the Garfield Mounted Guard will aemble on Niagara Square, mounted, this evening at 7 o clock, for drill. i The regular meeting of the Sixth Ward Gar t n11 field and Arthur Club will be held at tbej wigwam.

Eisbop will speak. THE SPIRITS. Mrs. Anna Eva Fay,' the noted materializing medium whom Prof. Crook, of England, 'undertook to investigate, last evening at the lesidence of Mr. Frank, on West Eagle ttreet, gave a seance which was quite largely attended and Interesting alike to believer and skeptics. Some of the newspaper re porters were present, and this fact perhaps inspired the festive crowd of spirits, for they held a veritable circus. ' Our space will not allow an extended re port ot the proceedings,, but one or two examples may.be given. The customary cabinet was dis pensed with, a curtain being tacked across one cor ner of tbe room to as to enclose a triangular spare, The height of the curtain w a about tlx feet. All had- lh. otroortumiv of serin- that there was noth. ine material behind the curtain but a small table and a tambourine bell, etc. Mrs. Fay sat in front of the curtain, m view of all and with tbe lights on, a gentleman holding her hands. In almost lest tbtn no time there was a bubbub inside, tbe instru ments were played, and then hands came thtough the slilt in ibe curtain industriously beating tbe bald head of the gentlcmin referred to with the tambourine, and engaged in other and mainly mis chievous performances. Where tbe hands Came from and what tort of hands they were, j are ques tions for tbe believers and non-believers to fight out. There was apparently 'no opportunity for a confederate to get behind tbe curtain, and it is not to ibe supposed that the parlor of Mr. Frank' private residence it mechanically contrived for trickery. .. .. -j' ... In the dark seance, with the inner circle com posed of about fifteen peiaons, there was a lively and noisy time, spirits of all sites and degrees being presumably prerent, 'manifestly very desirous of communicating with the mortals there, but not very coherent in any of their conversational manifests' t torts. The gU'tar, tambourine, palm-leaf fans, and big dinner-bell, flew around like mad, at if deter mined to scatter unbelieving brains, on the carpet. It waa pitch dark, and bow any human agency could awing the big bell, the guitar, etc, in such close proximity to faces and beada without , otxa-tional injury, is difficult to understand. :. Mrs. Fay tat in the centre of the circle, her toe resting on those of a newspaper man and bis hands' clasping birr wrist tightly, so that it is certain the- had no physical part in the manifestations. , So ttie spirits must baye done the work or a confederate. - A seance of this kind is -much snore satisfactory than those given in public halls before large audience, , Mrs. Fy will hold another to-morrow evening, at Ihe rame place, when tbuse of tbe publii wbo desire to attend may. , 1 , OFF THE TRACK. Shortly after tix o'clock last evening, at an east bound freight train on tbe Erie Railroad was pasr, ing Hunt s Station, the engine tumped the track, causing a complete blockade. ' A despatch waa im mediately tent to thta city tor wrecking ear, which Wat forwarded, but at last accounts tbe "wreck had I not been cleared. Beyond tbe delay caused to east- bound train bo great damage was done. " Kidney Pad at fi.jo at TIBB'S Drug Store. THE GENERAL HOSPTAU . Formal Opening amd Dedication of the Mew Bulletins' Interesting exercise. - The new, and what is to be tbe main building of the Buffalo General Hospital on High street, was formally opened to the public yesterday afternoon. A magnificent structure, built ida substantial manner, it stands with the old building a lasting monu. meat to tbe philanthropy and munificence of the noble band of ladies and geotlemen in whose minds this grand charity wasfirst conceived and who have been with it through its early '. struggles' and later sueceslesjX The new wing is triumph of hospital architecture. Everything that tbe combined intellects of the building committee, of the memlp of . the Ladies' Hospital Association, andof tb'4 .regular ! architect could devise-for tbe comfort a'nd alleviation of tbe monotony of the invalids' necessarily tedious hours has been introduced in the edifice. Thanks to the generosity of a number of our citizens, there was no financial stringency, arid tbe committee were noj held back in their platis and proposed improvements. The ground for the erection of the addition was broken about tbe middle of August, 1879, and the contractors, although making- rapid headway, did not press, the undertaking to its detriment. The structure is one hundred bnd twenty-seven feet long and fifty-three feet . wide. It is three stories high, arid the exterior bears- a very close resemblance to that of the bid building. Tbe two are connected by a wide corridor. Tbe whole interior is a model of ease and quietude, tbe white aijd cheerful wall, the brightly varnished floors and woodwork, and the many little things that a woman's all-seeing mind bas put here and there-, will combine to make the tenant's stay at comfortable as possible. On the first floor is a large roc-m thirty-seven feet by thirty-two feet, with a bath-room adjoining, which will be used as a. female ward. In the front part are the genet ai parlor,, the Superintendent's office, the doctor's office, with sleeping room! attached, four private rooms, two bath-rooms and a small kitchen. AH of- the; rooms on this floor will Ibe furnished in elegaut style, two having already been . fitted up by Mr.- William Wilkcson and Mrs. Avery, , But where tbe whole building seems full of comfort tbe private rooms on the second flour, of which there are nine, fairly personify cosiness. Seven ladies, one gentleman and the ladies of Christ church took upon themselves the task of furnishing these apartments. Most nobly did they fulfil their duty. Everything that cultivated taste could suggest. aided by the decorator's at all times excellent judgement, toward the fitting up of these .rooms, was done by Ihe ladies. With the general aim. the con tentment of occupants, at- all times before them, Ihey worked zealously to make the rooms as nearly home-like as possible. Pictures of cheerful designs. curtains of bright and attractive colors, and ruj ot Dues mat Dienaea nttmgiy witti the other ma' terials, were freely used. Of the nine apartments, that furnished by the ladies of Christ Churoh was generally admitted the most elegant, ThisA'as the only society that came' forward in this work, and the ladies who superintended it are entitled to much praise,, "pie room selected by them i.ytn the southwest corner, and is numbered " 13.", It is a perfect bower of relief. The maincurtains are of Nottingham lace, with bright chintz borders, while wiitiin is a green curtain, acceptable to an invalid's generally weakened sight, anddainty white curtains inside of that. Two large Smyrna rugs cover the . floor, and the furniture is of curly maple. A' large cabinet with its acc jutrement of vases and bric-a-brac hangs on the wall lietween tbe two front widows, and a luxurious lounge and a large chair, tbe heighth of ease, are in the I room. A superb afghan, ele gant table covers and beautiful china-ware add to the general effectL 'A writing desk and a table which can be pulled close to the bed, with the best of linen and towels, all hearing the monogram of tbe church, complete the furnishings. Across from this retreat is a room furnished by Mrs. R. TL. Howard The furniture is of wine color and the curtains of plain white luce. A la rue invalid's chair with a handsome cover bespeaks hours, of comfort and contentment for the occupant cf the rooms. The remainder of the apartments are similar in decora tion and furniture, and the transom -windows bear the names of the kind-hearted people who fitted them up. They are as follows: Miss E. H. Gates, Mrs. G. T, Williams, Mrs. A. Allmah, Mrs. M. Fillmore,' Mrs, R. P. Wilson and Mrs. Wm. Ham lin, and . Mr. Noah P. Spragae. '., In a number of the rooms small book shelves hang, on the wall, in which are books selected with good judgment. The works of Dickens, Twain, and other- cheering writers abound. In addition to these rooms , there are two bath-rooms and a large clinic with a wash room and another room adjoining. The clinic extends to the top of the building, and is lighted by a sky. licnt. 1 be seats are built in the lorm ol an am phitheatre, and the ceiling is finely f rescoed. An elevator has been constructed of a size that will allow of a cot bed being placed upon it, and tbe patient may thus be taken upstairs. The third floor is de voted entirelyfto the nurses, there being thirteen partmems tor mem, tvitn bath rooms. 1 tie system f ventilating tbe building is especially praiseworthy The impure air is carried from each room through a large flue which enters a large foul air duct and rawn down into the cellar and through the pipes which are laid under the ceiling of the cellar and thence into a foul air room and int 1 a chimney through which a current of hot air is always pass ing, thereby causing a suction. During the afternoon -quite a number of ladies nd geul le men visited the building, while id the evening ihe attendance was very large. , From seven o'clock until eight there was a steady stream going tb the hospital, and frequent were the good words said for the fine structure. A meeting was held in the female ward. - On the platform were Mr. J. N. Scatcherd, President of the Hospital Association; the Hon. E. G. Spauldmg, tbe Hon. S. S., Rogers, theTIon. E. C. Sprague, the Hon. O. H. Marshall, DrT. F. Rochester, Dr. J. Haueristein, Dr. C. C Gay. Messrs Tniman U. Avery, A. Altaian, J F. Schoelkopf, R. P. Wilson. Frank Tracy. C. H TWilliams. F, Sidway, the Rev. J. M. Henderson and the Rev. A. T. Chester. Mr. Scatcherd called the gathering to order, and on bis motion the Hon. E. G. Spauldine was chosen Chairman, On taking the chair Mr. Spaulding returned his .thanks for the honor shown him, and said they met to- congratulate their friends and the building committee upon the elegant building the inspected and which they would dedicate to charity and benevolence. The Rev.; J. M. Henderson. rector of the Church of the Ascension, offered prayer. after which Mr. Scatcherd', las Chairman of the Building Committee, addressed those present as follows: ' ' - MR. SCATfHERD'S ADDRESS. -V" - On the twenly-first day ol November. i8ss. a few citizens of Buffalo held ai meeting lor the pur pose of " discussing the propriety of establishing a public hospital.," There were present Charles E Clarke, George S. Hazard, Andrew J. Rich, Bron- son C. Rnmsey, Wm. T. Wardwell, Roswell L. Burrows, Doctors Phmeas H, Strong, Charles H. Wilcox, Thomas F. Rochester, Sahford B. Hunt, Wm. Gould, James M. Newman, John Root. Chas. C. F. Gay, lames B. Samo, Charles H. Baker and Sandford Eastman. 1 he following resolution expresses the views and action of these gentlemen: : Atsoivea, 1 nai in tne opinion 01 mis meeting there exists a necessity for a public hospital in this city, and thar we win proceed at once to organize a hospital association, to be known as the Buffalo General Hospital." I be meeting elected oeorge r. Hazard, Andrew. T. Rich, Roswell L. Burrows, Pet.- Curtis, Joel Wheeler, Charles E. Claike, Bronson C. Rumsey, W. T. Wardwell. and George Howard, the first Board of Trustees, and inserted their names in the articles of incorporation. : . . , : December loth Bronson L. Kumsey reported that he had procured a subscription book and was so liciting funds. March 14th, 1857, a committee was appointed to report on a location tor a building. April loih the committee reported in favor of a lot of land on High street.' The report was adopted and the present site of ibe hospital was purchased. On the 20th of May Architect Otis, after having visited tbe hospitals in New-York, presented plans for-the Buffalo General , Hospital. June 12th, 1857, ibe President of tbe Board wag authorized to enter into a ' contract with Messrr, Rurarill & - Morgan for the construction of Ihe west wing of the hospital and the engine and boiler-house, providing they would accept part payment ol $41x30 in Lake Navigation stock at 80 cents on tne aoiiar, ana ? 1,500 in oraers ana store pay. These terms were refused and the contract was closed for cash. July 14th a building commit tee was appointed to look after the construction of the new building. lane lath. l83. the first medical staff was elect ed. The physicians were Drs. Thomas F.

John Root, and Charles C r. day, Tbe Hospital was dedicated on June 24th, Ex- President Fillmore occupied the chair. Iu expressing thanks for the honor conferred Mr. Fillmore said: " I was not aware how. silently and gradually this building had grown up. I was at once astonished and gratified as I passed through the edifice and saw what had been done." Prayer was offered by Rev. Dr. Thompson. A poem written by Miss Matilda Stuart for tbe occasion was read by tbe late Asher P. Nichols. Hon. James O. Putnam delivered an oration, which was followed by speeches from the late Dr. Heacock and Jesse Ketcfaum. In speaking of the site selected for tbe Hospital Dr. Heacock said he "rejoiced such a beautiful spot bad been chosen for the Hospital, overlooking the city and the bay, and commanding view of the "brown hills in the distance. He always admired the beauty of tbe spot, and always brought his friends there when he wished to show them at die glance the glories of his native city. If there was any place where health could be wafted Q tbe lungs of the invalid it must come here.4 On July 6th, 1858, A. W. Dewey and wife were engaged as warden and matron at a salary of $300 per annum for the services of both. " v The first patient on the register is on July 8th, John Russell, a Scotchman, he was discharged cured.- The charge for ward patients was fa per week. Private rooms $4 to 8 per week, with tbe understanding if these charges were too hih a reduction might be made. January '. 1859, in accordance with request of the trustees, the treasurer made a report covering all expenditures from the date of organization down to tbe present. The report was as follows: Purchase oast of real 'estate, $15, 9; amount paid on account of real estate, t7 550; paid on construction account, $22,384. - Total disbursements, $29,934, Received from tbe State $10,000, from citizens during four years f 19,934. Special mention was arrade - to tbe family of tbe late Judge Walden for donation of Ei.ooo, and to Mr. Albert; H. Tracy for a lot of land which realized f 3,000 cash. February 6th. 1863. Messrs. Hazard. Rumsev and Clark were requested to report to the Board, a committee of ladies to act with the trustees in the management of the Hospital.

April 1st, I872.the warden in communication to the trustees rerw-aenred that ifce connection Of the ladies with the hospital was injurious and detrimental to it. That the best interests of the institution would be promoted by the withdrawal of tbe ladies. A committee wat appointed to investigate and report. '' j . Ihe committee leoorted there was no foundation for the statements; made by the Warden. That the best interests of tbe hospital went promoted by the conoectioni the ladies with it. That in tbe opinion of the committee the Warden feels uneasy under tne supervision of the uaies Hospital Association. ine 1 rustees on motion resolved the reDresenta- tions made by the Warden are not sustained. That the best interests of the hospital . are promoted by the connection of the Ladies' HoKpiial Association with it, and the ladies are. hereby invited to continue their management. j uiy 2t)tn, i7a, tbe Board 01 1 rustees requested tbe Ladies" Hospital Association to appoint three from their Executive Committee; to act with the Executive Committee of . the Trustees. This arrangement gave such good satisfaction, the ladies were requested tq name two of their number to act with the Auditing Committee. 1 No action of the Trustees has' been more beneficial to tbe hospital than placing the internal management of it in the hands of the ladies. Giving tbem seats in the Executive and Auditing Committees brings into the hospital the economy and care practiced in our homes, and this, no doubt, accounts for the confidence and liberality so generally felt by our citizens towards the Buffalo General Hospital. ' From the election of tbe first Board of Trustees down to 1879 there bave been eight Presidents and four Secretaries.) Charles EyClarke was the first President and served nine years. ; George Howard two years, James! Brayley, James D. Sawder, R, D. Sherman, Hon. John B. Skinner, Jason 'Sexton, each one year, acid P.r JySberman seven years. Of these five are till livhg. The! Secretaries were Roswell L. Burrows; two years; Wm.T. Wardwell, seven years; Ge(org S. Wardwell, six years, and Wni. S. Miller, present Secretary, ten years. Over twenty-two years ago the jwest wing of the hospital was opened for j the reception of patients. Since then thepopulation of our city has nearly doubled but no addition; to the capacity ot tbe hospital made In that building for years there has seldom been less thin seventy-five, and often over one hundred persons lodged and fed. These include patients, employees, ' warden's : family and physlains. Tki overcrowded condition was pain, ful tca II connected with the management of the the autumn ol 1878 the ladies held a Loan air, which realized S3,soa iuts they set apart as a nucleus lor a Duuaing tuna, festivals, con certs and entertainments followed: A generous public patronized until Ibe proceeds, along with ac cumulating interest and contributions, amounted to over seven thousand dollars. The low price of ma terial and labot suggested an auspicious opportu- nity.ior duiiuii. ; t tc jatttes peser ana. oesiegea the Trustees, uiging them to take) advantage of the favorable condiiipn of the times and make a venture. Tbe Tnijstees, unable to . withstand the pressure, appointed a building committee with instructions to ptocure and present plans for consideration. "!" . . The plans presented were adopted by the Board, and on June 27th, ,1870, the Trustees gave the Building' 'Committee Mes.is. Williams, Evans, Houck, Sgatcheird Drs. Rocheslter arid Miner- permission to proceed with the construction of the new building as Boon as the committee could see its way clear m paying tor it. 1 he 1 rustees stateu they had no funds on hand for that purpose; that the coard wouJcl not be responsible for any money and could not consent to upy i indebtedness being incurred. At thesame lirhe individually they were willing to contribute their share along with other citizens. The itiofi of the Trustees was not Only proper, but so cfear it con Id not be misunderstood. Cm the Iltb ot August the contract for putting up the new addition, 40x127 teet, was executed, and ground was broken the next day. I The work pro ceeded with despatch until in, October a strike of the stone-cutters Drought operations to a standstill, Four weeks of fine building weather was lost before the strike ended; The building was-enclosed early in January and all work, suspended for the winter.

The thanks pf the friends of the hospital are especially due to the two gentlemen who made the erection ana completion 01 mis structure a possiDit-ity. One of them said, I will giite as -ucli as any one in Buffalo.

Others fol. lowed witfa similar amounts, and others with smaller sums until the record given is the result. - Standing 4 few days . ago at an upper window of this building the blue waters of the lake could be seen whitened by the outgoing and incoming commerce of our city. Truthful emblem of the active arid substantial character of this worthy charity. From another outlook, the foot-hills of the Allegany Mountains can be viewed, rising one above the olher, their sides doited and' decked with farmhouse, field, aind forest; their feet resting in the pure waters of Lake Erie; theiir beads ost in the sky. Beautiful emblem of this beneficent institution. Good works rendered oh earth wiU.be rewarded in heaven. '! " , I feel thai.kful mine has been the good fortune to have been permitted to work with the benevolent hearts and active hands that have done so much towards making the Buffalo General Hospital what it is. I fee thankful I can say 1 with others I bave bad a share in this good work. . Tbe Building Committee have felt ad" ambition--pardnnable we trust 10 be able to present ibis new addition to the Trustees entirely completed and free from debt This ambition has been fully gratified There are no unsatisfied demands or -claims now outstanding against this building; everything hat been paid, and that without -touching one dollar, principal or interest, of tbe endowment fund, ; On tbe contrary, tbe Trustee have added one thousand dollars to the endowment fundi And further, all expenses for the' current year are paid up to the first day of September, and there js stij tome money in the Treasurer's bands. . s The idea of selecting you, Dr. Rochester, to represent the ; Trustees on this occasion was most felicitous. You were one of the incorporators of the Hospital, and assisted in electing the first Board of Trustees, twenty-five years ago. Three years later, when the first medical staff was elected, yon were one of the number, For fourteen years yon have been a member ot the Board of Trustees. Fro t Ithe beginning dowp to the present your heart and your purse have never been closed against the Buffalo General Hospital. You have stood by it through days of darkness at well as in sunshine. You have given it the benefit of your professional skill and much substantial aid. For these reasons your selection for the position yon occupy this evening is an exceedingly appropriate one.-S,, .;-k - -'"iy- i-::- And now, air, in behalf of the public who hay given tbe hospital the benefit of fas confidence; 10 behalf of the donors who have se generously contributed; in . behalf of the Ladies' Ilospital' Association, whose management has; been o successful; in behalf of the Buildipg Committee that hare endeavored to discharge its duty, and in the name of our Heavenly Father, t present to the trustees the central division of the Buffalo General Hospital, As proof that all claims are satisfied I band yon vouchers as evidence of your possession I .deliver you tbe keys. After the ceremony of turning oyer the key and vouchers had been performed, Dr. Rochester said that he accepted With pride, emotion and gratitude this noble building thus entrusted to the Trustees with pride as a' citizen, with gratitude as a mem-, ber of tbe Board of Trustees, and with emotion as a member of the Medical Board from its incipiency tome tweqty-five years ago. Many of those present did not, be said, know Dr. Charles H. Wilcox, his old friend and associate. The Doctor was unlettered and some people bad said uneducated. - But he was . one of God's noblemen. In his mind was born this hospital. He started it by making it a home for soldiers that came from all parts of the country to defend the Union, Little did he think that his early efforts Would develop such a grand charity, " Blessed be his memory," said the speaker; and our citizens should see that it it commemoiated iu proper form in this interior. Mr. Scatcherd bad said some good words, for him (the speaker) but he was not de- servirTg of a tenth part as much praise- as Mr. Scatcherd. In referring to the presidents that gentleman bad forgotten to mention one to whom they were indebted more than any other person for that fine building. Dr. Rochester referred to Uie zeal with which Mr. Scatcherd had worked to secure the subscriptions for the new building, and on his mo- tion a vote of thanks was tendered that gentleman. The Hon. E. C Sprague then made an address. rehearsing the development of charitable and other institutions in this city. The Hon. S. S. Rogers, in response to a call from the speaker, made a few remarks, referring to the part the members of thet Ladies' Association bad taken in tbe matter, and especially to the noble woman who headed them. The Rev. A. T. Chester, who officiated in a similar capacity.at the opening of the old building, twenty-five years ago, pronounced the benediction, and the meeting was dismissed. the National came.

There will be a meeting of the stockholder! of the Buffalo Base Ball Club this evening at Company D's parlors, for the purpose of electing a Board of Directors and discussing other important matters. The Cincinnati Enjuirer the following: We have information of such a kind as to al most warrant the-acsertion, that the iniquitous five men reservation plan will fall a flat Tailure at the meeting next. Monday. The Enquirer was the first to attack this disgraceful measure of the League, and for awhile stood alone in ilie fight. The Chi cago papers, however, look up the battle on other side. Then came trie iSoston Herald to the aid of tbe Enauirer, while the Cleveland and Buf falo papers passively contented then, selves with the neutral policy ol quotations, f.ven ' tne Clipper, which 'has ever been ready, to tight .the League, strlange to say, in this case refused to enter into the fight, although acknowledging the injustice of the League policy, wowever, me gooa ngnc 01 me Enauirer and Herald, though not resulting in the open, high-hrn'ied action ot the players themselves. as was at first nopeu, nas nevertneiess Dome gooa results. The expose- was. so well made that 4he whole base ball woild in the United States'look the trouble to discuss and consider Ihe outrage. . This is what was devoutly tb be wished for, and the fruits of it all are good. We last night received what we believe to be reliable information that the infamous measure is already a dead duck. Cincin nati and Buffalo will fight it to the last ditch, so that the only way the policy could be enforced would be by a constitutional amendment, which would require six votes, such amendment; according to tne con, stitution, cannot be. made except at an annual meet mf: see article xv.. 1 he coming meeting is not an adjourned, but a special meeting. The minutes of Secretary Young, published huthe League-book, of both the annual meeting at JKocliesler ana ttie aa journed meeting at Rochester, show .this clearly, We are further informed that the lsoston Club are liable to oppose the plan, and .the Troys are not a unifcfor the measure. Now. if S5me of tbe inde pendent plavers, who have minds of their own, like Panl Hines, will clench the affair by openly declar. ing everlasting war against it. there-will not be a rrhdst of a chance lor the success of the measure, The chances for Cincinnati to bave a good team in the field next year are, tlierelore, brighter than they have been for months. The Chicago Times says of Thursday's game in that city: : ' The elephant now goes round. The band begins to play. The bovs around 1 he monkey's cage Had better keep away " sang Frank Lombard on yesterday alternoon as he watched the progress of the "circus"' at White Stocking Park, the animiles which furnished forth the menagerie being the Chicago and Buffalo nines.. The end ot it ail was that the tjurtalos, whom the Chicagos had hoped lo defeat in twelve con:cutive games, turned an tbem at last and gave them the worst trouncing they have received this vear. hitting for thirty-one bases and making nine teen runs, eleven of which were earned with the stick. After seven innings everybody was satisfied with the amount ot fun furnished and the game was Called." The grand total of twenty-nine runs made by both sides is probably the largest score of the year, certainly the largest in any game of only seven innings and the total of fifteen earned -runs has not been equalled "in any other league game of me season as tnis writer icwiitxis 11. . 1 Of course such a record against the Chicagoi club. with its regular team in tbe field, would be impossi ble, and it can Only be accounted for now by tpe fact that it is,; a fearfully crippled organization, This is the state of affairs. During the last visit to Cincinnati Williamson threw his hip out of joint and is still unable to pljay; a few days ago r Flint splif.his thumb open a second time and plays the . , . 1 t : .-.. : . 1. : . lurnsuie, Corcoran, tor tuc him. uuic. inn bbuuh, is a thoroughly sick man. aching from head to foot Goldsmith has a lame arm and a split hand; Gore is so lame from a sprained ankle that he can do little either in the field or ohithe bases; Beals bas every joint of the forefinger on his right hand dislocated; and Anson s right arm ts so lamb that he cannot throw. This leaves Kelly, Dalrymple, Burns, and Qaest four out of eleven the ouly well men in the organization, and it is by no means certain tha either of these is without a dislocated finger, So it came about that in yesterday's gime no: less than six men occupied the pitcher s position,! and three men caught, making a full nine for these tw positions, and, on the Chicago side there was sue a shifting around as has not before been seen, every man in tbe nine, except Beals and Dalrymple, playing at from two to four places. After it was found that neither Corcoran or Goldsmith could pitch little bit, Burns was tried, and got an- uproarious round of applause by striking out the first man that faced him. He pitched one innings, and nd runs were earned off him; but his delivery, was wild, and he exchanged places, with Kelly, thus taking his fourth position during the progress ot the game, and it is no small credit to , his versatility that he did not make an error in any of them, Kelly proved quite a puzzler, and in the thrie innings in which he pitched; only three -hits were made off him. That with fair pitching, even, the Chicago would have won the game, is evident from their batting. ' Nineteen bases on bits in seven innings is good work with the stick.

BRONNERS, No. 406 to i Main Street, ATTENTION 1 Annual Muster and Inspection of Sixty-Fifth and Seventy-Fourth a Rearlments, the Pursuant to orders from General Military Headquarters at Albany, the annual inspection and muster of the 65th and 74th Regiments was held yesterday. Tlflt SIXTY-FIFTH. The members of the 65th Regiment assembled at the Arsenal on Broadway at nine o'clock in' the morning, and forty. five minutes afterwards the several companies were taken out on , the' Parade grounds. ' For several years' past it has been the custom tojnspect the National Guard of this Slate, while in full dress uniform; but in this way the nspector General could .not ascertain how the various organizations were equipped and prepared for active duty. The 'orders for inspection and muster this .year required every man to appear in heavy marching order, which includes fatigue dress. knapsack, with overcoat rolled, and canteen and haversack slung. In this manner the men were dressed yesterday, and as it was tbe first time during tbe present year that they paraded in heavy marching order,, they attracted much attention. Assistant Inspector-General T. F. Rodejobaugh of the staff of Gov. Cornell. Brevet--Colonel Robert M ason, Captain in the roth IX. S, Infantry, 'now stationed at Fort Porter, and Colonel Tohn A. Holloway, Inspector of the 8th Division, occupied a position in the centre of the field. After the regi- ment wai formed and alignment properly made and dress parade, gone through with, the several com panies passed in review before the inspecting offi cers, ibe regimental band, under the direction of Prof. . Poppenberg, presented twenty-five men in their new and bright uniforms, and after them came the regimental drum corps, composed of sixteen men. 1 he ; visiting officers inspected the line. and subsequently '.took up their1 original positions. The regiment was then ordered to prepare tar inspection, and the members of both the commissioned and non-commissioned staffs moved lo the front of the companies, while the band and drum corps fell to the rear. , The in spection of the officers was quite as rigid as that. of the men in line, and as much, if not more, fault was found with some of them than with the privates. After one company had been looked over, and very minutely, it began to rain, which necessi tated moving to the drill-room.' There the exami nation of guns, cartridge-boxes, and knapsacks was continued, and finally the muster was ended and the several companies taken to their quarters and dismissed; after having been in line about three hours. It' is certain that although several bad blunders hadbeen made by officers, the Sixty-fifth Regiment never before made- such a handsome showing. Every portion of. uniform and equip. menls was clean and bright, aid no exception could be taken to the complete organization. In regard to the marching and alignment, not much of praise can be said. The tall grass on the parade ground became trodden down, and served as a ' network into which the men's feet became entanglfed, .' and it was almost un impossibility, under such circumstances, to keep periect. distance. ." . The rolls of the companies which had been previ usly prepared by their respective captains, were presented to the Inspector-General. To Colonel John C.- Gaaves is surely due much credit for the excellent manner in which he has controlled the regiment during the past year. 1 It is to-day as fully equipped and as ready for immediate duty as any military organization m the State. THE SEVENTY-FOUkTH. At precisely three o'clock, the hour appointed for the muster of the 74th Regiment, it was drawn up inline in the Armory, the rain having made the grounds outside unfit for use. The regiment turned out in greater numbers than on -any previous occa sion of the. kind. They numbered 318, including the! band,- which was under the K-adership of Messrs. Cramer and Plogsted. The effect produced hy so large a body of men in fatigfte uniform was striking.) . The muster and inspection was conducted by the same officers who officiated at the inspection of the 65th Regiment in ihe forenoon. The first thing in order was ihe review, which passed off very quietly, and evidently to the entire satisfaction of everybody present. Col. RodenbaugH then requested lhat they should give a dress parade and other battalion movements. The parade which .accordingly followed was fully up to the standard, and the time kept was excellent. Close upon this came the following movements, all of which were executed in a prompt and thorough manner: 1st, breaking in columns of fours; 2d, forming into columns of companies, with left front in line; 3d, "by the right of companies, rear into-column;'"4ih, close column by division on first dtvisioa right 'in front; 5th, deploy column. into line of battle. 3'lie drill was closed by the column going through a number" of tactics ih double time. - " At the conclusion of tbe drill the inspection was made. Tbe regiment was subject tolhe same-orders as, the 65th' n relation to the haversacks, canteens, etc., as well as the way in Avhich they were to be worn. Colonel Reichert was in command. The drum and fife .corps, numbering sixteen, won their full share.of compliment's from the spectators. The inspection was carried on very thoroughly, and it was after seven o'clock when the column was dismissed. Last evening the Inspector (as we- are informed), expressed himself as" very well satisfied; and it is safe to say that a favorable report will be made. MILITARY NOTES. 1 Caplain Bloomer was yesterday detailed to take charge of the trial of delinquents to be held on the 20lll illSt. " ,' "": Mr. James Bigelow was on Monday evening last elected Second Lieutenant of Company D, Seventy-fourth Regiment." The Inspector is said to have expressed much admiration for the work of Mr. , Fame; Mills, Drum Major of the Seventy-fourth. An election of Lieutenant-Colonel and Major of the Seventy-fourth Regiment will.be liejd at the Armory on Wednesday next.' Company B. and Company G, Seventy-fourth Regiment, under' the command of Captains Bloomer and Zacher, are deserving of special mention for yesterday's work. In the absence nf Adjutant Lathrop of the Seventy-fourth Regiment yesterday, who is laid up with a sprained ankle, Lieut. Nursey was substi tuted and performed the duties of the position with credit.

Activity was srnewhat more general in marine circles yesterday, f hich may be. attributed to the karrival during the night of several large .grain barges from Chicago and Duluth, also from Toledo and other Lake Erie ports. . Several of the elevators were working, and the tug-men during the past two or three days have had a fair amount of towing to do. Several large schooners were expected to reach the harbor sometime during last night, so that' the prospects seem fair for an increase of business this morning: The weather since Thursday has been somewhat changeaTile.'jftnd yesterday . was rather disagreeable, being both cold and wet, with a fresh breeze from the -southwest during the greater part of the day.

The " Dale," like all others in the line, isan exceedingly line and , strongly built boat of the usual canal-boat dimensions, namely: 0,6 feet over all,' wUh 17 1-2 feet breadth' of beam, and 9 feet 3 sinche3 side. She is a frame boatronstruclcd of the best - white-oak and Georgia pine, edge-bolted throughout, and thoroughly kneed fore and aft -on both sides, her bow and .stern being likewise well supported with oak breast-hoOks and stern-pieces. Her mtjfive power is supplied by a peculiar flat-shaped .propeller-wheel which fits close lo the stern-post, driven by a vertical, engine with a twelve-inch cylinder, having a sixleen-inch stroke, to which steam is supplied fin upright steel boiler, jacketed with galvanized iron.

She- is in charge, of Captain William Hall, son qf the ownci, an experienced canal captain, who speaks highly bf her performance- on her trial trip, - , v r .The Buffalo branch of the fieamen's Union a't their. last irteeting decided to advance jvages out of Buffalo to $2.50 per day, -and ' it is probable the Cleveland, Detroit .and, jother "branches will soon follow suit. A special despatch from Alinapee; Wis., to the Chicago Tribune, under, dale of September 29th, says:- - .- ( "Another collision which resulted in the sinking ot the schooner America, Captain Gunucrson, happened, about two miles .off Sandy Bay Pier at 12 o'clock last night.

The" Chicago Tribune of Wednesday says: "The 'longshoreman engaged in discharging salt cargoes at various docks along the South Branch have hitherto engaged in highanded outrages whenever an effort" was made to introduce noh-Union men to perforrr) the work, and invariably succeeded in driving the new-comers off. The were' handsomely foiled on Tuesday, however, by Thomas T. Morford. agent of the Union Steamboat Company. The propellbrs of the line do not often carry salt, but on Tuesday the Rochester arrived with 3,000 barrels, wnich had to be discharged in Evan's slip. Accordingly Mr.- Morford put his colored warehouse men on board of the Rochester and proceeded to the slip to roll the j.lt off. Only onegangway on the propeller was kept open for this purpose, and thus the danger of mvksion by the Union men was materially averted. The Union men swore and threatened, but the presence of a posse of ten policemen and a knowledge that the propeller men were armed to the teeth, served to hold them at bay. One of the ruffians cut jac harness of Mr. Mr. Murford't horse for revenge. While the Rochester remained at the dock her officers did not dare to 'venture ashore." . ,-.'". The steam barge David Bailantine and 'her consort the large schooner A. B. Moore- have been chartered at Milwaukee to carry 95,000 bushels ot wheat to Buffalo on through rates.
