THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: THURSDAY JANUARY 2, OUR LIBRARY. JLnotlier Grand Chicago Enterprise Established. (Continued from the Fj-st'Taje.') -tore their minda with useful primary information, and to. learn how U think and reason ; but DCCATIOH BHOCLD KOT M0 WITH SCHOOL-DATS ; It should be continued through Efe. Schobl-hood ehould only b the opening chapter, the preface of the Tolume of life. Man must depend n etady, not on inutinet, for knowledge and wisdom. Ideas are not innate ; but are the product of previous information obtained by per- eention and investigation. The brain, when un-ta ht. is a blank ; it liea inert and dormant ; andmuBt be roused to action by external application and internal effort. Wa caa think correctly only within the circumference of our information ; outside of that line all id error, guess-work, superstition, and Tain imagination, fiooke are the magazines and storehouses of material thought and information. Education is the process of transferring ideas, facts, and knowledge contained in books to the mind of the learner or student. He that has transferred none is an ignoramus; be that has transerred much is a scholar; he that has transferred httie is smatterer. The power of thinking and reasoning depend upon this absorption of thoughts evolved from the brains of others. Wo light our lamp from others, and increase its tlame in proportion to the material we draw from them for the support of the mental combustion; for the mind may be compared to the stores of oxygen lyingjinert, which will only f ive forth light and heat by contact with carbon, his carbon is the thoughts of thinkers brought In contact with the brain, and producing the (parks aud flames called IDEAS AXD REASON. To increase those sparks, and brighten the fiame, we must bring the mind into continual contact with the produced thoughts of others. There is no limit to the strength and size of the fiame of thought tt't may be thus evolved. The leas we know, tb -earor we approach the plane of the beasts and birds; the more we know, the nearer we approach the piano of the angels nd our Maker. The power of man over Nature and his accidents is in proportion to hia mental development. The influence and power of a city, Si.ate, or nation is not meemired by its numbers or its commerce, but by its enlightenment, by its thinkers. If it be said that the wealth of a city or nation measures its power and influence, I reply that its wealth is the product of its intelligence. An ignorant nation is never rich; and what riches it may possess it knows not how to use to secure influence or command respect. Truly, "knowledge is bowbT " power for every purpose under the Bun. AN EDUCAIEU PEOPLX, Ir. Chairman, are always a free people. They can never be conquered nor deprived of their rights and liberty ; their resources for defence againHt attack are infinite, and their courage kievsr fails. It is the ignorant who are cowards n the struggle for the preservation of liberty and independence ; for they do not appreciate the value of freedom, and do not know how to defend it. An educated people are temperate and virtuous, decent and industrious in their lives, respectable and energetic, benevolent and wealthy. They are free from, want, and escape the pangs of poverty and the woes of wretchedness. Invention, and improvement, and labor-saving machinery are the products of intelligence, and are their hand-maidens. . Whatever, then, increases the stock of knowl- ?lge in a community, adds to the thinking power t the people, and just in proportion to their (thinking power will be their wealth and pros-.f'perity, their influence and authority in the iworll Now, I hold, Sir. Chairman, that no I Birdie agency will contribute more to this most I Important desideratum than a great public libra 1 ry, amply supported and comprehensively con-I ducted, a library whoBe books will find their way into every household, aud their contents into every mind. i ou want a central library of standard and reference volumes, covering the whole domain of higher literature, and art and science, with reading rooms which will accommodate hundreds of persons at the same time, Xou must establish BBA5CH LIBRARIES In various parts of the city, for the convenient distribution of books. Every inducement and temptation should be held out by the management to the young people of the city to patronize the Fubho Library and its branches.. There should be a course of free lectures given every winter on all useful, interesting, and instructive subjects. Applause.) And our own scholars wd thinkers should be induced to address those audiences, and they should be compensated herefor. There are growing up in this city thousands of neglected young men of immature and inchoate mind. They are drawn in by the caterers of licentiousness and dissipation, and are rtp-dly created into . roughs - and rowdies nd grog-shop habitius. They learned to read t the public schools, but since leaving them othing has been placed in their hands in the laps of a decent or moral book or periodical, hey have made no advancement in useful in-irmation, and without some external influence i brought to bear upon them which will change leir thoughts into better channels, they will - rift farther and farther from the walks of vir-ae and knowledge under the influence of the icious temptations of city life. I have strong lores that our Fublio Library, when well established, and its books well Circulated, will be the mens of securing many young men from the downward road they are now .travelling, and preventing thousands of others from entering upon paths of vice and sin. - This library can be made THK LTTEHABr UADgUA&IEBS and intellectual focus of our city and the Northwest. It ehould become the most attractive resort for strangers sojourning among us. A book is an author talking to the reader, telling what he knows upon a particular subject in his best style of expression. The address is to "he eye instead of the ear, and through that aense the thoughts of the author are conveved to the mind more accurately and connectedly, and leave a deeper impression than when transmitted orally, because the attention is not hurried, and portions of the sense lost in verbal delivery. A great library contains myriads Of these fleshless lecturers, who are never sick, absent, or dying. The body of the author may have crumbled uito-duet long ages ago, but his thoughts still live. Here you can sit down amidst the great masters of reason, poetry, fiction, history, physics, and hold converse with them. You can have an audience With Homer, Virgil, I'lato, Demosthenes or Conf aoius ; you bay travel over the ancient. world with Herodotus ; study the exact sciences with Euclid and Archimedes, and moral philosophy with Socrates ; or descend the stream of time and entrr the inferno with Dante; or observe the inmost resources of the heart with Bhakspeare, Goethe and Racine: or range through the starry fields of heaven, and study the forces which control and unluence, with Newton and Kepler and investigate the anatomy of the earth with LyelL Hitchcock, Miller, Murchison ; or the composition of its materials with Davy, Liebig, Lar-lsier, Sluel, Huxler, and Tyndall; and to indicate other fields of thought searched by brilliant intellects, I have only to mention such Barnes as Locke, Palev, Lacon, Montesquieu, Gibbon, Grote, Carlyle BchiUoiy Whewell, De AocquevUle, Humboldt, Agassia, Darwin. Speaker, Scott, Macanlav. Comte. --M.ilL Irving, Jjrankhn, Greeley, merson. Burke, "Webster, ir801? Hamilton, Longfellow, Barclay, Bar. jroijK. and Chanuing.

And this is a bank, whose raults are stored with treasures of thought, richer and better than greenbacks or golX It may be checked upon without fear of breaking or embarrassing it, and the more its treasures are borrowed, the richer in thought and purer in morals its customers become. It charges no interest for using its loaas, and no repayment for ideas and facts derived therefrom. For all practical purposes, the Public Library will be the private property of each citizen. It each person owned a duplicate copy of its contents he could only spend his spare time in reading them, and that ho may do hereafter with the books of the Public Library. And then he has this great advantage, he is not subject to the expense of taking care of them, providing a place for them, or purchasing new books and periodicals as fast as they are issued. A GBEAT PUBLIC LIBRARY, with its branches, is like a great public park, with its connecting small parks. The parks are for the recreation and enjoyment of the whole people, for the improvement of their health and Eromotion of their happiness ; so the pnblic-brary will be for the improvement of their minds and promotion of their intellectual enjoyment, with this superiority over the parks, that in improving and developing the minds of the masses, it adds to their strength and power to meet and surmount the ilia of Ufa, to banish misery and poverty, to open up higher and better opportunities for success, and to rescue its votaries f row vice and vulgarity, sin, and ignorance. Applause. DR. RYbER'S ADDRESS. The Rev. Dr. Byder then spoke as follows : Ma. Pbesiokxt and Feixow-Citizens : I had not the remotest expectation of being called to this platform. I have no speech to make, either extempore or written. I can only say while I stand here for a single moment, that 1 am heartily in sympathy with this enterprise, and - that anything I can do to make it a Buecess in thin community, I shall do, out of an earnest and honest heart. I rejoice in the auspicious opening of this public library; I sympatize with you in the grand addresses to which we - have' listened, and I hope we shall all give heed to the solid, sensible talking to which we have just listened from the lipa of our Mayor. Now gentlemen, remember this library, help it while yon live, give it to your time and your sympathy, and you that have money, if you do not give it to this institution before yon die, give it to this institution then, that it may be built np a tower of strength in this great city, and a token of our great municipal progress in the Northwest. May the blessing of the Infinite Father rest upon the services of this hour. Cheers. PROFESSOR FtSK'S REMARKS. Professor Fisk was next introduced, and said : I thought when the benediction came, sir, we ought to leave church. Laughter. I came here, Mr. Chairman, to listen, not to speak, and yet I will say one word to show my sympathy for this great and good enterprise which we are here to-day to inaugurate. W e have first, always, in this rising land of ours the material age, which we are now reproducing in our noble city, an era of pork, and of grain, and of lumber, and all material products. It is right that we have them, for, after all, they are the foundation of our Cjperity here ; but there will come an era of ks for the intellectual man, and so we have rightly come here to-day, on this opening of a new year, to lay the foundation of a new library, and I could not but think, when listening to the eloquent and very able addresses with which we have been favored, of SEVENTEEN POOB MEX, who feared God and loved their country, and who acted upon the noble address of our worthy Mayor though they did not hear it, and who, in 1700, came to a Utile town in Connecticut and laid upon a table, each one one book from hia very scanty library. Baying solemnly r "I five this book to found' a library in ale College," just as some of us have brought out of our poor libraries a book or two here. Wbat ia the result, Mr. Chairman, to-day ? Yale College has a library of about 90,000 volumes, and one of the best selected bbraries on this continent. That is what came of those seventeen men bringing each his little volume and laying it upon the table as a foundation for a noble library. So did the ancients. " From small things great things arise " e parvia ori-untur magna. So it is from this small beginning that the great library of Chicago is to arise. As, a few months ago, I stood in THK BRITISH MCSECK, and saw there over a million of bound volumes, and shortly afterwards in the Royal Library at Paris, and saw a collection almost equally as large, and then as I saw in Berlin that regal, that royal library, worthy of that great capital of that great empire, just about as large as the others, and thought of the life-growing influences Of the life-quickening influences of those mighty centra of influence upon those great nations, oh, how I longed that we in Chicago, for I am a Chicagoan, from centre to periphery of my being Cheers, that we, in this noble city, that had been laid in ashes while I was away, and which was to be reproduced again more splendid than ever by the time I returned, could have such a library, or sucn a beginning of things heie, I should feel that I could say, ''Lord, let now Thy servant depart in peace, for mine eyes have seen Thy salvation," and I rejoiced when I heard of the opening to-day. Now let me give my WELCOSTB TO THIS LIBRABT, which I believe, though 1 may not live to see it, and you may not live to see it, is to be in the future, and that not in the remote, but the near future, I trust, what those splendid libraries are now, for the whole world seems to beaching to give us out of its benevolence, to fill, our shelves. I behave the time will soon come when we shall have a library which will not be a disgrace, but an honor, to us. Let me say, on this New Year's Day, A happy New Year to this the first New Year of the Pnblio Library of Chicago, the noble child of a noble mother. May it live to see many such years ; may it go on increasing in strength and influence and power, with the noble city in which it is located. The Chairman then declared the Beading Boom sufficiently dedicated, and the audience separated. . CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE LIBRARY. To th4 Editor of Tk4 Chicago Tribuns : . Ent : Being interested in the success of our Public Library, I would suggest that the appeal to our citizens to contribute to the shelves will be much more fruitful if the managers will request contributors to notify them where their contributions can be called for, and, after the reports are all in, send a man around with a horse and wagon and collect them. "Most persons who would be willing to give a few-books find the trouble attendant upon carrying or eendirg the books to the Library enough to discourage them from their good intentions. After that resolution passed by the Directors, in reference to German contributors, givers will be modest about lugging their books to the Library, for fear they would be called " trash.? I don't see how the Directors could be guilty of such a violation of ordinary good manners, as to indorse such a resolution. Let it be amended, in the name of all decency, bo that we shan't all pass for boors in the opinion of all Europe. Grvis. Chicago, Jut. 1, 1873. ' Arkansas FJgr.rea Farce ia Ho Name for It." The TTasIiington (Ark.) Telegraph thus refers to the statement not official returns on file in the Secretary of State's office, the figures of which were counted in making np the Secretary's abstract, instead of the regular returns: " The Gazette of the 13th publishes a tabular statement of the vote, which it says is official, having been taken from the returns on file in the office of the Secretary of State. Let as taka oar own county (Hempstead,) and see how far they . are official, or, rather, how far they are from official. The Gazette table shows Baxter to have received 1,356 and Brooks 661, while the certified abstract of the vote cast in this county, now on file in the Clerk's office of this county, 6hows Eaxter to have received 1.490 and Brook 1,233. The actual returns as certified show Baxter's majority to be 2S6, while the doctored returns, from which the Gazette's table is made up, give him 695, thus adding 437 to his majority. And all this doctor-ing has been done at Little Bock, for the Clerk of this county made an honest abstract of the precinct returns, as it was his duty to do, without presuming to throw out the minstrel votes of the hundred minors, and the hundred fictitious votes, and without counting any of the votes cast under the Enforcement act at the side boxes, but only taking them as certified by the judges and clerks of the regular polls. The returns on file in the office of the Secretary of State, as certified by the Clerk of this county, show no euch thing as the Gazette has rra'i-lished. And by such means' Baxter, and tne" whole minstrel crew, except poor tool Bradly. are to be declared elected! And the hone-it (? crowd will accept I Farce is no came f or it. Fraud is too mild a word to express is. The indignation of the decent people ia exhausted.' THE OLD WATER TOWER. How It wasEnilt, and Scenes at Its Inaugnrctlon. What- the- People SawHow Mc-Alpina Cams to Grie Commentary cn Human Expectations. Pride and . Twenty years ago, the City of Chicago, having only newly replaced the log conduits of the Chicago Hydraulic Company by the iron mains of the Chicago Water Works, began the reservoir system. Up to a short time previous, the asthmatic pumps in the old red wooden mill on Michigan avenue, later the site of the Adams House, had carried forwrrd the work begun by Anton Berg in 1334 for the water Bupply of the community. Anton used one horse and a puncheon mounted on two wheels, and was an institution outgrown when the old red mill began its functions. So the time came for a reservoir to meet the third era of the water supply of Chicago. C J. McAlpine, City Engineer, was set at work on the plans, and a vigorous hunt commenced for a site. It must be a little suburban, for the town might grow. Among other localities suggested, a shoe from the property of the late P. F. W. Peck, on Adams street, west of Clark, was discussed. It was not a corner lot, for LaSalle street ended at lladison, though the project was even then in its first stages to open it to Van Buren. It took ten years to accomplish this street opening, a feat that nearly drove the assessors distracted and laid the foundation of flomishing practice for several lawyers, who always grow well in these well watered crevices in the ledge of human society. There being no LaSalle street at that point, the Water Tower, when built, was in the centre of a long block, stretching from Clark to Wells street, since Fifth avenue. Several facts helped to fix the site. It was ru ral, tree-embowered, with grass all about it, and the white-fenced enclosures of citizens, and patches of kitchen garden, and altogether each a spot as yon may drive miles away from the present Public Library, in either direction, north south, and west, before yon find its match to day. Clark street, south of Washington, whose two corners were held by the sol id brick churches and tall spires of the First Presbyterian, the good Dr. Curtis, Pastor, and the Clark Street Methodist, was, south of that point, a street of quiet and cosy homes, rith neatly-kept front yards, and all the village aspects. Clark street was busy and had the omnibus line of 8. B. 4 M. O. Walker connecting the centre of business with the new Michigan Southern Depot, one mile south, at Twelfth street. Clark street was planked also, and was becoming noisy, and some of its residents began to mourn for the quiet old days. But there were beautiful homesteads in large lota. The late Starr Foot occupied with his cottage a quarter block at the corner of Monroo. Two cream-colored cottages, the envy of all house-hunters, looked out on Clark street below Adams, on the "Captain Bigelow Property," among great beds of verbenas and petunias, and clumps of lilac. And beyond stood the residence of P. F. W. Peck. These last-named buildings, after the cad vicissitudes of shabbiness that were the later destiny of the whole neighborhood, were removed in clearing the site of the first Pacific Hotel. Mr. Feck had been the original owner of the present entire block now bounded by La Salle, Adama, Clark, and Jackson streets, which he purchased at an early sale of Canal lands. He had made large purchases of well-selected real estate, for Mr. Peck saw, with a clear eye, the future of the city. He rarely sold real estate, and only for some special reason, like that which induced him to part with two adjacent quarters of the block in question. He saw in these transfers features secured to the neighborhood of his home of permanent beauty and value. One of these purchases was made by the Northwestern University, just then in swaddling clothes, in the hands of Dr. John Evans and other prominent Methodists. On this property, now a portion of the Pacific Hotel site, they were to plant an elegant, quiet suburban institution of learning, with ground enough to give it the surroundings of trees and bowers. Such a neighbor Mr. Peck was willing to entertain. Then McAlpine showed Mr. Peck his plans for the Water Tower. It was to be a marvel of construction, and the local editors of the day went into ecstacies over its merits. It was to be a model affair, a composite superimposed structure of pressed brick, with handsome stone trimmings, on the top of which was to stand the tank (the present Library room) while the two stories below were to !e the offices of the Chicago City Waterorka Board, looking out upon a green lawn and gravel walks, a thing of beauty and a joy forever. Property advanced two dollars per front foot in that vicinity at the remote prospect of such a consummation. Mr. Peck sold the property. Mr. McAlpine was as busy as a bee in a bonnet, for public structures of such a class were a novelty in our city. Ground was broken. The street mains wore laid. The walla grew apace. Tbe opponents to the opening of LaSalle street had a tough time of it, and were regarded as pnblio enemies. But they stood their ground,arni their moral epidermis being made iron-chvd with the lawyers' parchment, they fought the thing in all the courts, and held the last hen-houee to its site until years aftei the catastrophe of the Water Tower. For a catastrophe there was. And this is how it happened. We shall not attempt to give our readers a lesson in architecture, but merely state as a generalproposition, that, if you erect of human masonry a hollow, central, standing shaft for the water-maina, and from 'the top of this shaft turn a circular ' arch to the walls of the surrounding structure, and leave a funnel-shaped depression on top, and then saperimpoce an iron water-tank, capacity some million gallons, more or less.'in such a way that it becomes a descending wedge into your annular arch, please imagine what will happen, and yon will then understand what did happen. MeA!pine's work was done. There was a day appointed, a gala day. Each daily paper doubled its local force by taking on one reporter. The Fire Department turned out with their hand-engines. The dauntless "Torrent" and the " Phosnix came. So also came the stylish Hose Companies, quite the ton in those primeval days, brave with paint and bright brass, and ribbons on the drag-ropes, manned by Chicago boys who, only a few years later, with the same esprit du corps, took their bright brass guns to where they were besmirched with the smoke of actual battle, when they went to put out a fire some of our erring brothers kindled. The Mayor was on hand, and his Aldermen, and the citizens and their dames were out in force. Adams street was a mas of people. The square surrounding the tower was a sea of human heads. And the pumps at the new Water-Works on the north lake shore, where our great fire found them, having burned a whole city between, were set to work to fill the tank, bo that the end might crown the work. Presently, samebody saw water spurting from the stone cornice of the tower. The spurt increased to a stream. The cornice parted. The brick work rended, and the dismal flow began. Then there was a rush. Water is a good thing. It has done much for navigation. Bat to stand and be drowned on a gaia day this crowd would not. It left left without the speeches. Left for home. Dragged away the hose carts, the very wrinklos on their hose-reels crisping into a grin. Home went the "Torrent," the "Phosnix," and " No. 7." A shabby man in a sad bat, who had evidently been abstaining from Vrater that morning, in order that there might be enough to fill the tank, proffered this advice to the crestfallen McAlpine : " Turn the durned thing over ; put yer building onto the tank. Then shell stjjid, bet yer a doilar." There were no takers. So the promised palmy days of the Water Tower ended before they began. For months is stood a solemn laughing-stock, xpod even to the waggery cf the Walkers' lean Clark street omnibus horses, who used of ;en to enliven their melancholy lives by affecting to shy at it in passing. Property in that vicinity fell off il.iA) a foot, nd Calvin D"Volf. who lived just over the wav, aud had intended to build a bav window aJU'-y for contemplatiaa of ihe Water Tuwer. didn't build it. Aitar a while a hew of dejected masons went at work and tricked no the structure within, braced it with iron ; rods, utterly destroying the possibility and once bright fature of the destined offices for the Water Board, and in the conrse of time, alwavs in a lame sort of way, the Water Tower passed into use. It was decrepit and dropsical, never had a strong stomach for water, never was trusted with more than half its intended capacity, and never parted with the solemn scars of its ili-etarred inauguration. It fell straightway into evil companionship. The sewer builders surrounded it with the ruLUiab. of earthen pipes and the fumes of tar kettles. But the wheels of time stand not for human structures, the pyramids of trie Barneses or the Water Tower of McAlpine. Eternity moves on, and even ' brings with it street openings. And when LaSalle street came down to Van Buren street, there to meet the Michigan Southern Bailroad, already arrived at Ud present terminus, the whole neighborhood eaat of Clark and south of Madison had fallen from its virgin estate, the rural sym-plicity which was its setting out in life. On these squares were massed the coarsest life of a trowing city. To these squares crawled every ecrepit wooden structure displaced by improvements in the heart of the city, until it came to pass that these wooden buildings stood roof to roof on every lot, filling each block from street to street. They became the haunt of the low and the vile, the shame-lost woman and the shameless vagabond, and among these the enforced homes of the poor. And here the Fire found them, and thueo densely-packed squares of old wooden buildings feiudied the flame that awept the city, 'ihe Old Water Tower stood. It had bad its own grief, and was proof against Fate. The late Pacine Hotel fell beside it, and the city burned beyond it ; but the great tank, stripped of its wooden casing, stood on its shabby pedestal of brick on the morning after the Fire, as if avenged for all the sneers put upon it, in the name of the buildings pasted away. And now its new destiny has begun. Tax Tkisckk reports of to-day are authority on the matter. SIMPSON & CO." AT MOCKER'S. The first day of 1S73 will long be remembered in Chicago as the date of one of the most notable theatrical performances on record, and will hereafter be referred to as the day when Charlotte Cushman appeared in comedy at McVicker's Theatre. .An immense audience was present yesterday afternoon, crowding the theatre to its utmost capacity, and nearly two thousand people began the New tear with one of the heartiest laughs of their lives. Probably so many ladies and gentlemen were never before so richly amused at a single sitting in Chicago. Certainly, a dramatic performance so absolutely complete in every detail has not been witnessed in this city. A brilliant, roaring, eide-ephtting comedy to begin with so full of witty dialogue and ludicrous situation as to amount almost to a farce and played by such a cast I Charlotte Cushman, J. XL McYicker, Milnes Levick, Octavia Allen, Clara Stoneail, and Mary Myers, all with splendid comedy roles, all evidently given over to the frolic of the occasion, and all bent upon amusing and entertaining the audience to the last degree. There was no exception. The rollicking spirit of genuine comedy ruled the hour, and the risibilities of the spectators were taxed even to aching sides. " Simpson & Co." has been so rarely given in Chicago, if at all during the past fifteen years, that it is practically a thorough novelty. It is brim-full of fun from beginning to end, there being scarcely a line or an incident which is not mirth-provoking. The plot deals with the domestic aJXairs of "Simpson & Co.," consisting of Peter Simpson (Mr. McYicker) and Charles Bromley (Mr. Levick). The former, who is in reality one of the most exemplary of husbands, by a skilfully-devised combination of events, is made to bear for a time the odium of bis partner's little " irregularities," of which iL'r. Fitzallm (Mrs. Myers), a handsome widow, and a school-girl friend of Mrs. Bromley (Mrs. Allen), ia the unconscious and unwilling object. The most salient feature ia the effect produced upon Mrs. Simpson (Miss Cuehman) by the supposed discovery of her husband's falseness, for the mistaken bestowal of which upon him Madame La Trippe (Mrs. Stoneail), a gossipy French dealer in smuggled goods, is responsible. The clearing up of the ludicrous muddle, and the reconciliation of Mr. and Mrs. Simpson, occupy the play, the conclusion being reached with admirable neatness and ingenuity. As the jealous wife, Miss Cushman's part gives scope for the richest cf comedy acting, and to say that she is every whit as pre-eminently great in the role of Mrs. Simpson as she is as Me Merrilies and LaAy Macbeth, is to embody the whole range of comment in a nutshell. That ebe should develop a vein of humor so rich, generous, and unctuous would seem to be inconceivable, or would hive seemed so previous to yesterday afternoon. Nothingmore exquisitely funny eould be imagined than the mixture of injured Bniff-and-anivel which her face depicts in the opening scene, and throughout the entire comedy, whether in tone, facial expression, or by-play, the impersonation is wonderfully humorous. And that she enjoys a little fun on her own account was manifested in the contretemps which arose from the sudden disappearance of Mr. Levick's whiskers, which got loose and had to be adroitly chucked into'his pocket. Bef erring to Mrs. liromlry'sbUertuVVpio-rance of her husband's little intrigue, Mrs.Simp-son upset the gravity of the entire cast by the impromptu remark : She little snepecta what a shaver he is !" Not less than Miss Cushman, Mr. Levick showed that he could drop the tragic 6tride and aocent, and give a charming morsel of genteel comedy. Mr. Mc Ticker, apparently iiupreeeed with the fact that the 1st of January comes but once a year, and that Charlotte Cash-man in comedy comes still more rarely, was in his very best mood, and out of the puzzled, half-distracted, consciously-innocent victim of misplaced suspicion, he succeeded in working np one of the finest impersonations of his Ufa which is saying a great deal for Mr. McTickor, as all Chicago knows. The intensely pre-Raphaelite vigor with which he so nearly " shook the daylights " out of the luckless clerk, brought down the house and the clerk too. Mrs. Stoneall'a role was a peculiarly . exacting one, and she acquitted herself with signal distinction and credit. The same should be said of Mrs. Allen and Mrs. Myers, for both were f uiiy alive to the spirit of the occasion, and played at their very best. "Simian & Co.-' was such a magnificent success that Mr. Ms-Ticker must repeat it before the the termination of Miss Cushman's engagement.

THE GREAT PYRAMID. Hi Scientific Theery. Tbeneet specimen of one of the ancient casing stones of the great pyramid known at present to exist, either in Europe or even in Egypt, was received is Edinburgh from Mr. Waynman Dixon, arising young engineer f Newcastle-on-Tyne, who has recently completed an iron bridge across the Nile between Cairo and Jeezeh. Exploring among the now notorious rubbish mounds on the northern foot of the Great Pyramid and especially among the parts of tbeta which had been extensively cut into by the Khedive's workmen, a fw years ao, in order to supply erude materials for the new road whereby the Priuce and Princess of Walesdrove out boob afterward one fine morning to viait the venerable primeval nsonument Mr. Waymaa Dixon discovered this loose specimen just in time to aave its being 'carried off among otber large lumps of stone preparing to be broken up anl need by the Arabs in building themselves a new village near the pyramid. The specimen was illustrious in his eyes, though not at all in theirs, by its possessing, though in more or less injured condition, five of the anciently worked sides of the block, including, fortunately, among them the npper and lower horizontal surfaces, together with the beveled surface between. The exart angle of that beveled slope (common to all the Great Pyramid's casing stoues whenever they have been alighted on) lei the bite John Taylor, of Gower street, London, to the immortal archaeological truth, never dreamt of in the philosophy of all the regular Uuguistio and hierological Egyptologists ; eit, that the shape of the entire monument (since then declared by the learned Lepsiua to be the oldest architectural monument still existing above the surface of the earth, and the one to which the first link, not only of Egyptian, but of universal, history is securely fastened) was carefully so adjusted and exactly fashioned in its own day to precisely such a figure that it does demonstrate in the right way the true and practical squaring of the circle. ' Whether that shape was given to the great Pyramid for that purpose is a different affair, and may serve as a question for the schoolmen to go on disputing over, if they like. But there is another noteworthy fact for more practical men, touching this material stone so hapnily saved by Mr. Waynman Dixon, and it is this, viz., that the length of the front foot of the Btone, or that most important line or edge from which the angular slope of the whole stone commences to rise, and which may, therefore,- possibly have been regarded as a radical length for the theory of the great pyramid, is found in this case to measure a very remarkable length. And what length may that be ? Not the ordinary profane cubit of eld Egypt, nor any extraordinary profane one either, nor anything whatever that the modern Egyptologists of Europe have ever suspected, but, within the limits of mensuration error now unavoidable, the number of just twenty-five pyramid inches, neither less nor more. And twenty-five pyramid inches have been shown to be the ten millionth part of of the length of the earth's semi-axis of rotation, as well as to have been the length of the cubit of Noah. Moses, and Solomon : or, in the words of Moses to the Hebrews before Sinai " the cubit of the Lord their God." Alhenaurn. runs. SPECIAL. NOTICES.
