The proceedings were Inaugurated by a devotional meeting, led by tbo Her. *J. L. Jones, of Janesville, Wls. Mr. D. L. Shoroy, President of tho Conference, de livered a brief address of welcome to tbo delegates. The Bovs. Laird Collier, 0. H. Brigham, of Ann Arbor, Midi., aud T. B. Forbusb, of Cleveland, wore appointed a Business Committee to orrangc and bring before the Conference tho business or tbo session. • The Rev. L. I. Uosmer and Mr, Miller wero chosen Secretary and Assistant Secretary, respectively. Tho minutes of the last Conference wore approved Of without reading. CONDITION OP THE DENOMINATION. Tbo Rev. 8, S. Hunting, of Indianapolis, Secretary of tbo Conference, read a report or essay on tbo con dition of the denomination. ZTo referred to recent In tolerant acts on tbe part of other sects, and sold that Unitarians had reason to congratulate themselves that they bad kept dear of those dangers. There were now ten flourishing societies west of Ohio, exclusive of Chi cogo. which had no existence twer years ago. Tho move ment in Lawronco, Kansas City, Omaha, St. Louis, Cleveland. Sandusky, aud parts of lowa was being pushed with spirit and success. Ho then discussed tbo Bible and religion as understood by tbo Unitarian faith. Tbo reports of Secretaries of Local Conferences being next in order, a communication from tho Lako Brio Conference was read, which did not give a very flattering account of tho condition of tho faith in that part of tbo country. Tho report from tho Missouri Volley Conference showed that several flourishing liberal congregations exist in tbo Southwest. Tbo Western Illinois Conference was reported to bo in a Broeporoua and promising condition. Tho report of io Chicago Conference gave the number of societies at fourteen, all of which arc sound financially and constantly Increasing In membership. A statement' concerning tho Theological School at MoadvlUo, Pa., was read. Tho report of the Wiscon sin Conference showed that tbero arc but four sooioticoin tbo State, and these arc in a condition of average prosperity. There ato plenty of unorgan ized believers m Liberalism in other parts of tho State. On motion, consideration of the letter relating to tbo Meadville Seminary was deferred until after tbo essay by tbo Rev. Mr. Brigham. Tho report from tbo Ohio Conference disclosed tbo fact that them nr« oh many Gorman Unitarian Churches tn tho West os there ar« Amort»«», Rnmntirncs they are known as Independent Protestant organizations, but their theology is essentially Unitarian tn its char acter. A gentleman from tho Lake Erie Conference entered an objection to tbo report of tbo Secretary of that body. The churches were in a much more prosperous condition than bad bocn reported. Mr. Clark, of Milwaukee, stated that tho Unitarian Society of that place was in a state of suspended ani mation. Tho reason of it was that there wore four other churches in which the liberal Christian doctrine wuoprcacbcd by able men, and It was footed that tbo regular Society would loso oil its members unices a minister of Intellectual power could bo seemed by them. - Mr. Lane, of Mattoon, stated that tbo Unitarian So ciety of that place was in a flourishing condition, after meeting with many vicissitudes. A gentleman said that Unltarianisra was not par ticularly successful in Toledo. That city was deserv ing of tbo sympathy and assistance of every church of the denomination. Tbo Rev. Laird Collier objected to listening to tho history of individual churches. Such interesting nar ratives should bo kept for tho local conferences, and by them condensed and forwarded to tho Western Con ference. Tho reports were accepted, and tbo Conference took a recess and some lunch. Tbo latter was plentifully provided in tho Sunday-school dining-room by tbo young ladles of the Society, who waded on table, washed dishes, aud performed many other charitable services. AFTERNOON SESSION. The Oonforeuco reassembled at a o’clock, and (he flev. 0. U. Brigham, of Ann Arbor, delivered an essay on “Theological Education and Ministerial Supply,” Ho said ho could not speak in sanguine terms' of the prospect of Unitarlaulsm in the West. Ho did not think that the members of the faith had increased In numbers; on'.tho contrary, a decrease was painfully noticeable in many States. Notwithstanding the munificent generosity which had been extended to the Unitarian Churches in Chicago, bo was im pressed with the belief that the denomina tion, in the West was in no bettor condition than before our groat fire. The question of ministerial supply suggested the questions, Docs the West want any preachers of the Unitarian faith 7 Docs it want them so badly that it (will furnish them with a livelihood ? Years ago the answer would have been In the affirmative. Now the general answer is totally dif ferent, hut an affirmative answer may nevertheless be given. There are very many LIBERAL CHRISTIANS who do not call themselves Unitarians, but whose be lief is almost tho same. Those people want Unitarian preaching, though they may not know it by that name; they want it In Presbyterian churches, In Baptist churches, and In the Methodist churches. It Is a fact that liberal doctrines are continually preached In those churches, and that there Is a constant demand for firoacbora in those denominations who havo advanced □ their religious Ideas. To the orthodox seminaries, therefore, must ho left the care of supplying those liberal preachers for so-called orthodox congregations. And In this connection it was a fact worthy of attention that tho loaders of nearly every secular Journal of any importance lu tho conntry were heretics, or men who baa cut loose from old forms of faith. After sketching tho manner in which Unitarian churches are formed, and tho strange beliefs in which Its membership indulge, the speaker proceeded to ex plain what the mental and physical attainments of the preacher for such a society should bo. Ho should be In sound physical health and possessed of clear heads and sound, common sense,—a man who will not take dreams for truths, who Is firmly grounded in their be lief, and who can give utterance to his ideas In good phrase, and strong but not monotonous voice. A good education is another essential requisite for the preacher. X WISTEQN UNITARIAN SOODET* docs sot want a mero official to occupy tbo pulpit, who cannot hanalo tho religious subjects of the day as pro* sented in the columns of tho Journals, and answer the questions which will undoubtedly be propounded to him by his congregation. Men who are ail piety and nothing else won’t do. Surplus godliness can’t make up deficiencies in education. Tho speaker closed by pointing out the sourcesof supply of preachers, claiming that the most important one was the ranks of Orthodox ministers. The kind of | theology ‘needed by Unitarian preachers was also explained. UU. CLARK, OF MILWAUKEE, said the essay was one of tho best ho ever hoard. When Mr. Brigham commenced, tho speaker felt cer tain that he would bo compelled to follow with a criti cism, hut as Mr. B. progressed, ho supplied all defi ciencies, and removea tho necessity of an answer, lie fully agreed with the essayist in all his arguments, hut auggestod in addition that Church Societies should not devote all their time to listening to preachers and attending fashionable churches, but should visit Jails, hospitals, etc., and perform real Christian work. Those who did such work, had but little need of preachers aud churches. THE JIEV, Hit, BELLOWS said that Mr, Brigham had taken away all tho min isters and Mr. Clark had shown how the Church could got along without them. Ho never heard such a doleful story as the former gentleman told, hut he could not believe it. If tho object of religion was to keep up such a slate of things us he had described, he (Dr. D.) would bo perfectly satisfied if Unitarian and other ministers came to an cud Immediately, Ills idea was that unless churches cau produce men who will bo moved by the holy spirit to toll what, they know about Ood os ministers, they might as well close. Unless a roan has been so moved, ood his whole soul is engaged in tho work, his theological education and historical and other attainments will avail him but little. If the Unitarian churches could not produce ministers for its own nulplt, there was something wroug about it, and wan (lie duty of bo* Uovora to make tuo necessary change. thr nsv. n. n. amiTF.K thought that tbo romarka of tbo throe previous Apeak* era wore fnoro intimately connected than-cither of them thought, Mr. lirlgham did not for a moment forgot atbal tuo plHt of Qod was nomctblng that semi naries could not convey, and which waa Indispensable for the successful preacher. Ilia essay bad boon baaed on the supposition that candidntca for tbo ministry posspsaed It. Tilts nrv. TiXuiD oolmtu said ho believed that there were tuo many ministers. If tbo church In Milwaukee had to bo cloned, it was because the people who belonged to it bad to go to or thodox churches for rltoa that they should get in tholr own institution. Young men woro coualantly becom ing Unitarian preachers who had no doctrine to prcaoh, 'the Rev. Mr, Vickers, of Cincinnati, aald lie was a Christian; that it waa alt well enough to talk abouttlio spirit and vicarious atonement, but it would be no an swer to such men as Darwin, and Bpencor, and Hux ley, and Tyndall. [Applause.] CONCLUSION, Mr. Murry Nelson moved that tbo session bo con tinued lu tho name church during tho evening, ond that tho discussion bo resumed. An amendment was offered that the Conference ad journ until half-past 0 this forenoon, and then resume the argument. Tbo Rev. Mr. Brigham suggested that tho time to bo devoted (o social intercourse this evening ho taken up in tho proposed discussion. • A member of tho Business Committee slated (hat tho West Side meeting waa one of (ho regular meetings of tho Conference, and should bo attended. Ho moved that the discussion be continued this afternoon. Carried. Tho Conference then adjourned. . EVENING SESSION. A publlameotlug of Universallsla was hold yester day evening at tho Third Unitarian Church, corner of Monroe and Lafiin streets. After singing and prayer, addresses were delivered by several prominent divines, tho first being by the Rev. James Freeman Clarke on tbo subject of “ Theological Trans formations.” To Coleridge was duo tho credit of having been the first man of any special ability to write and speak about old orthodox ideas from what is now con sidered a Unitarian standpoint. Though ho became a Trinitarian afterward, ho Implanted tbo doctrine that belief from reason waa tho ouly sound belief, and that a theological education in n certain form of religion was of no consequence unless the reason was entirely satisfied. With him it was opinion, not faith; hat ho subsequently changed his views of theology, and became as positive on the sldo of orthodoxy ns he had previously boon on tho aide of reason and liberalism. Dr. Cbannlng was another theological reformer. Ho was one of the moat positive writers on tho question, and In that respect was a model for Unitarians to fol low in an humble way. Negative work could hnvo but a poor reward. If time permitted, several notable in-r stances could bo cited to provo that theological change had progressed further than tbo majority of persona had Imagined. Tho doctrine of opinions was not cared about ns much as religious freedom and brother hood. What difference would there bo in theology after all, if men could bo brothers, though of opposite beliefs? Men like Beecher, Murray, Dudley, and Brooks have undergone a transformation. If they are spoken to. on religious questions,' very likely they will reply In an orthodox way. But they do not often preach tho old doctrinal sermons that they ytsed to, and when they do, It Is in a ifoless and uninteresting sort of way that suowa they have no interest in their work. This showed a great change, and waa tho evidence that the doctrines of Liberal Christianity were spreading widely and rapidly, and taking root in strange places. THE BRV. MR, DOTJTT followed with an account of his religious experience In Southern Illinois. Four years ago ho began mission ary work In that section, and was one of tbo queerest preachers that had over been seen. After preaching a year, be organized a little Unitarian society of eight E croons. From that small beginning tbo result bad eon extremely satisfactory. There were now sev eral churches and chapels In a circuit of ten miles, and at each there Is an average attendance of 100 on Sunday. Moat of those people wore What Is known os " outsiders.” Their places of worship have been erected at their own expense, and without any old from beyond tbo district. Ho always went on tho plan that the spiritual church should bo constructed before tho material one, and that the lat ter should be free from debt on the day of dedication. Though tho condition of his section of the State was gratifying, there was still .considerable work to be done. The people are looking toward the Colleges of Antioch and Mcadville for help,—for theological assistance, for they mot with much opposition from the believers in orthodoxy. Ho bad faith, bowover, In tho ultimata destiny of Unltarianisra. tus bev. mb. slirrrrH spoke briefly concerning tbe manner in which mis sionary work should be performed. Applied to Uni tariauum. his remarks meant that believers should make public what they believed and felt, religiously spooking, and not what they did not believe or fed. Tbo mifflionary who understood his work would Dot endeavor to convince a pagan of his error by abusing or laughing at him. On tbo contrary, ho would tell tho unbeliever wbnt bis faith was, and why it was so. Unitarians should work In this manner, —toll tbo world what they believe, and why they believe so; not laugh at or abuse tbo world for entertaining different views. Tbe speaker con cluded by advocating tho union of every church of tho denomination In missionary labor. THE BEV. MU. BEF.VEB. of Davenport, spoke about tho invisible influence, or unseen effects, -of Unltarionlsm. His remarks had reference to tho power which tho religious teacher has over tho pupil, and tho result good and lasting im pressions which ho loaves upon his mind. Journals and magazines conducted by liberal men, and tbo works ’of liberal writers, havo a wonderful effect in brintrintr thinking people into tho Unitarian fold. Tho object of tho aonuuiiuuuuu, Uo said, was not to gain immediate results, but acquire religious influence, and create good and lasting Impressions. THE BEV. DB. BELLOWS, of Now York, was tbe noxt speaker. Ho said that those religious bodies which had tho most frequent and tbo greatest triumphs did not always havo tho beat. Many men believe that religion is above reason. To snob, any doctrine Is easy of belief. Man must undergo complete change before bo can comprehend tbo meaning, beauty, and simplicity of the religion which is based on understanding. It Is often asked why, If tbo religion of tbo reason Is tho best for tbo world, God does not show His approbation of It by adding to Us membership and influence for good. It was not to bo presumed, however, that, because vice bad more followers in tbe world than virtue, therefore God was not on tbo side of virtue. Jewels arc not found as often as pebbles. Men who are educated, and who have liberal and advanced Ideas on tbo prom inent worthy subjects which occupy public attention soon change their theological views. Their Ideas of religion become as broad as tbclr Ideas of other ques tions. Tho religions of this country ord now expe riencing a severe strain, and It is more than likely that in tho course of a few years many people will be morally compelled to leave tbo fold. - The ob ject of tbo Unltorlan Church is to prepare for tho re ception of those unchurched people, and for tho edu cation of tho rising and coming generations. Tho speaker said that ho was oho of those who believed that tbe day will come when tbo Unitarian Church will bo a light in the world. The benediction was bestowed by tbe venerable Doctor, and the mooting dispersed. A DESPICABLE FELLOW. Mr, John It. Goss, of this city, was yesterday morn ing held by Justice Scully la $2,000 bail, for unlawfully obtaining SBOO and n costly diamond ring of Mrs. Sarah Head, of Providence, R. I. Some time ago Goss met with Mrs. Dead, who Isa widow, in Boston. They wooed and cooed for a while, and became en gaged to bo married. The widow was worth consider” able property, and In consideration of the engagement* and as a token of her true love, she gave her betrothed husband SBOO with which to start a restaurant in Providence, and a diamond ring, The betrothed proved himself unworthy of her confidence, for ho ran away with tho property, and camo to Chicago, Mrs. Read learned of his whereabouts, and sot off la Eursult of him. Tho love she had entertained for him ad turned to hatred, and,when she arrived in Chicago, she secured his immediate arrest on tho charge of lar ceny. Ho plead not guilty to the charge. A further hearing of tho case will ho had next Saturday. AN OLD MAN HANGS HIMSELF. A German named Jacob Betz committed suicide yes terday morning by hanging himself in a barn in the rear of No. 691 Washington avenue. He was discov ered by some children, about 0 o’clock, suspended by a rope, which was attached to one of tho beams. When cut down, a few minutes afterward, his body was still warm, but the heart had ceased to boat. Ho arose early and wont in tho direction of tho barn. For some years ho has been an invalid, and for the past week has mani fested much despondency because of his condition. It is supposed that this incited him to commit the act. Ho was 01 years old, and leaves a wife and six chil dren. The Coroner bold an Inquest yesterday, at which a verdict of death by suicide was renperod. Oarbolio Acid In Consumption. The employment of this wonderful aiU-septto— probably tho greatest gift of medical science to the nineteenth century—as an internal medicine, has hitherto been attended with some danger, owing to Its caustic properties. This has been much regretted by physicians, as Oarbolio Acid is tho only known sub stance that will really arrest decay of tbo lungs, Hap pily on eminent chemist, Ur. J. IT. ‘Willson, by com bining tho Acid with pure Norwegian Ood Liver Oil. has overcome tho dangers of Oarbolio Acid and added to its elllcaoy. Tho Acid arrests decay; tho Oil builds up tho system and supplies the stamina needed to over come Consumption. Tho preparation is called '< Will son’s Carholaled Cod Liver Oil.” It Is doing absolute wonders. Sold by our best druggists, To the Ladles. Pierce & flilvey, corner of State and Twentieth streets, will, on Thursday, Friday, ond Saturday, show ou elegant assortment of ladles' trimmed bonnets, hats, straws of all kinds, Normandy lace hats for chil droa, in four different stylos; lace bonnets for infants.

Pursuant to adjournment, the Joint Committee on Court Itouno pinna assembled yesterday afternoon, Commissioner Singer in tbo obalr. There wore also present the following gentlemen: Aid. Heath, McQon- Ulsfl, Halley, and Bcblulz; Commissioners Singer, Calloway, Hogue, Ucrtlng, and Lonorgnn; Hoard of Pubiio Works Commlsslonera' Carter, Thomplon, and Prludivlllo, and the Mayor. Aid. McQonulßß presented a petition from property owners having properly abutting on the Court-House Bqunre, which was ordered to a rending, *Tho petition rcqucelcd that a plan ho adopted giving equal prominence to all four streets, and making no one of more importance than the others, It waa placed on Ale. The signatures embraced every proporty*owncr. The motion of Aid. McGonntsa to select six plans for the Court-House waa then taken np, and a ballot bad for six out of tbo forty-nine plana. When tho ballots bad been prepared, Commissioner Thompson moved to reconsider tho vole to ballot for six plana. Ho explained that he wished to Inspect every plan in the liall with compaos ond scales. Every time bo had visited them ho found defects in plans ho had supposed to ho good, and rice versa. Ho wished tho wbolo Committee to go up and study them together. Commissioner Singer expressed himself similarly. Commissioner Calloway thought tho Committee would not bo hampered by tbo selection of six plans, for it waa not by any moana necessary to cbooso tho final three from that number. Commissioner Prindlvillo thought his colleague's suggestion to postpone on excellent one. An examina tion of several of tho plans already adopted wore found by him to bo very defective. Aid. Halley had found out. that soroo of the best plans had boon omitted in selecting nine. The motion to reconsider was carried. Commissioner Thompson thought the next thing to do would bo to appoint n day for tho Committee to meet there and examine tho plans. Aid. M’Gonnlss hoped every member of tho Commit tee would consider it his duty to ho present and ex amine tho plans. Aid. Ogdon said ho spent threo hours In Kentucky Block on Tuesday, aud was as much in tbo dark as bo* foro. Tho Committee must go ntono, and bare no crowd tkcro. They must lock tho doors and allow no one In there. ■ Tho Mayor said be was glad the Committee had oomo to this conclusion. It was his opinion that thoro was no burry about this matter. Tho building would bo up as fast as tbo money would bo forthcoming. Tho first time ho wont up thoro ho soloctod throe that seemed "to bo best, second best, and third boat; Tho second time ho went up, ho heard some criticisms on ono of bia favorite plans, which opened his oyos to some very bad defects. Ho hod gono again frequent* ly, and each Urao camo away with a Junior aud more comprehensive idea of thorn. Some of tho best plans wore not Incorporated in tbo nine, and some of thorn that wore, were inferior to others that wore out. Ho wan strongly in favor of tbo suggestion of Aid..Ogden, and boned that It would bo carried out. Aid. Balloy moved that tho Committee moot on May 7 at 9 o'clock In Kentucky Block, tbo publio to bo ex cluded from that hour till 8 a. m. tho following day. Tbo motion was amended to change tbo hour to 10 a. m. on Wednesday noxt. The motion to proceed to ballot was laid on tho ta ble, and the motion of Aid. Balloy, os amended, was adopted. Aid. Balloy inquired if that excluded reporters. Aid. Ogdon—"Ob, yes, ire don’t watt any report ers,” using tho plural number as indicative of his royal prerogative as temporary Chairman, probably. Tbo Committee adjourned until Wednesday at 10 a. m. PERSONAL. Qen. B. 0. Card, U. 8. A., la at tbo Sherman, Goorgo L. Houston, Scotland, is at tho Sherman. Hon. T. W.

This is but a small concession, but it will bo accepted with satisfaction as indicating a disposition to recog nize tho rights of fast driven as well as slow drivers. Now lot tho Lincoln Park Commissioncn “ see tho bluff and go better,” by adopting a rule by which horses may bo apeedcd.cvcry morning on tho north shore drive between 6 aud 10 o’clock, Tho latter is by far the best drive, aud such a regulation would pvovo to be extremely popular. Tho Now York Sun of tho 27th nit. has (ho following with reference to tho forthcoming billiard tournament for the championship of tho tbroo-ball or French carom gamo : "Five or six of tho players in America who aro moat accomplished at tho three-ball carom gaino aro to appear at tho grand tournament, which will b«held in this city during tho first week in June. The tournament, which is to tako placo at tho Academy of Music, filolnway or Irving Hall, will last six days. Upon every day of tho week during that period there will bo matinees, at which tho moat celebrated professional billiard players will exhibit their skill. Garnlcr, Maurice Daly. John Dt*ry, Joo Dion, and young Mr. Cook, tho champion of England, will assist. Tbo three ball carom, or French game, will bo played during tho day and evening, and prizes win bo oltcrcd severally of 1500, S3OO and S2OO to tho i&ost skillful competitors. In addition a largo silver cup, something after tho stylo of tho annual yachting cap, of pure sIU vor, will be tho guerdon that tho victor will receive. Tho games aro to bo SOO points up, tud tbo duration of each will bo about two houn. Tho great feature of tho contest will bo tbo appearance of Mr. Francois TJbnssy, tho champion of tho world at tho three-ball carom game. Mr. Übassy has lately been engaged In Now Orleans In a groat billiard con test with Stiller, tho champion of tho Southern States, in which tbo Frenchman proved tho victor. Mr. Übassy is a native of Marseilles, and a townsman and schoolfellow of Loon Oambotta, tho great Republican statesman. In 11100, Mr. Übassy offered to play any mania Fronco at tho thrco-ballcarom gamo for a stako of 1.000 francs, but could find no one willing (o ac cept tho gago. Ho became tho Parisian billiard lion, and in 1807 ho bad won such renown that he was urged to moot Charles Berger. Tbo two great bllllardists played a gamo of French caroms, 4,000 points up. Übassy won by 639, making an average <jf 7#, his largest run being eighty-five. Ho then come to this country, and efforts were mado to arrange a match between him and Joseph Dion, but tho latter declined to compote. Übassy, in hla- conception of shots, is instantaneous, and ho delivers his stroke di rectly his hand touches tho table. He never plays for effect, and while loaning over tbo table resembles a Ilcldolburg professor. This will pa tho fourth national billiard tournament which has boon hold in Now York, and it promises to bo a grand success,” AMUSEMENTS. BOOMST’B OI’EHA-IIODBE, “ Frou-Frou " was given at Uooley’s for the first time at yesterday's matinee, and also last evening,—on both occasions to good houses, though It was moving day for all Chicago. This play belongs to that peculiar French school wherein the consideration of moral tono is subordinated to those of skillful construction and strong dramatic interest. It is essentially lively and spicy in its movement and its situations, and its Inci dents in tbo main are based upon reasonable probabil ities ; but the lesson it teaches, if, by a violent effort, it may bo supposed to teach anything, —a result. It may bo imagined, neither sought nor expected by its author,—is a mischievous one, viz.* that a silly woman, without tbo shadow of provoca tion, may turn adulteress and work a fearful amount of misery, desolation, dishonor, and death, remain the Eot of society, return to her homo, bo pleaded for by er friends, forgiven by bor husband, and die tbo peaceful death of a pure woman amid a plentiful dis play of pocket-handkerchiefs by sympathetic auditors of the female persuasion. Such is “Frou-Frou," a play to be highly commended for its sprlghtllucsß, but sincerely deprecated for its sentiment. It la presented with admirable oftcctlvenoes .at Hooloy’s, having the benefit of a fine cast and elegant stage equip ment. Miss Sidney Cowell gives a pleasing pic ture of tbo frivolous Frou-Frou, whoso gayoty and exuberance are rendered with grace and naturalness. In the stronger and more emotional phases, however, she falls somewhat short of the excellence which her admirers have been accustomed to at bor hands. To be tearful, serious, or wretched is not in bor lino. UUs O'Oonuor, ns Louiie, was thoroughly ut home, noting the part with force mid finish, and dressing It with extreme good taste. The role of the fashionable and unscrupulous Uaronm was made suillclontlv do testable by Mrs. Mnodor, and was, of course, well act ed, for tbo character is nothing if not detestable. A Jircttlcr or more pleasing Pauline than that of Miss oslo Hatchelder could not be desired, and the liltlo that Miss Hattie Rocbo hud to do was done nicely. Mr. Blnisdoll os Sartori /, Mr. Norris as Vallory. and Mr. Budget os the Jlron, ap peared to unusually good advantage. Mr. Boggs has not “ made up ” Urlgard with Judgment, looking far too young for it. Ho needs to repress a tendency to “gag,” remembering that French gentlemen are not supposed to make use of suoh expressions os “pater nal patient," which, as Introduced by him, was neither funny nor apropos. “ Frou-Frou " will bo given to night for the Inst time. John Dillon’s benefit occurs to-morrow night. Four of hla greatest farces are un derlined for the occasion. It requires no wisdom to predict a crowded house. flow They Trent Ilroken Pnolcngew In the London Post-Office, From the United State* Mail, Tbero id uo savor of Yankee baggago-amaßh ing iu thla account of tho louder manner in which accidentally broken parcels arc treated in tho London Post-Office, and this was at Chrlst mas, too, when there is a great rush of mail mat ter. They are borne away to a side table, which is called “ the hospital "—and in this Post-Office infirmary two clovor Burgeons doxtoroualy ntloh up tholr wounds, sot nil tholr broken limbs in snlints, and, in flno, onro* such of thorn ns aro at all curable in a marvellously short space of time. Homo of iho patients seem past euro. Alas 1 for tbo pretty box of bon hon» that has burst open, and the contents of which are brought poocomcal into hospital, whore the mir foon receives them with a shako of the head, n extremis seems this doll, whoso integuments have boon tom off, whoso nose has boon stove in, and one of whoso nether Ihnbs arrives some time after the frame to which it belongs. A bit of string tinkers up a box containing a lump of plum cnlto half cosed in sugar, hut there is no euro for this packet of Today’s snuff, addressed in a woman’s uand-wrlUlng to a woman, and the contents, pervading the atmosphere generally, sot everybody a-snoozing? Decidedly *' open for inspection” is the doll in this parcel; the head sticks up out of the paper, and something or other has given Madame a black oyo. A box of real roses, sent from Franco to Scarborough, lias got broken, and some of tho loaves fall on the surgeon’s table ns tho delicious odor scouts the air. With tender finger ho handles tho honuti >ful bouquet, and lot us hope iho fair one whoso bosom it will adorn to-morrow flight willscarcoly ho cognizant of tho mishap. Tho trust fowl in this package has not boon seriously injured, nor has the snipe in this other, but tho surgeon sniffs disgust at its high condition as ho mnkos it fit for tho road again. After all, it is not so bad as tho dead puppy which passed through his hands tho other ingut. Thoro is a smashed soont hottlo, whoso contents havob con mainly absorbed by a chignon addressed to a married lady. A woolly dog. that harks snappishly when ho la handled, is half out of his paper kennel. A box of mistletoe has sorionsly suffered, but tho doctor Gohulfo is doxtoroualy to tho front, and cheery lips may yet bo kissed under It to-morrow night. Why didn't tho gentleman who eout tho beautiful bouquet to tho lady in Surrey inclose it in a bettor box? and why, oh I why, was not tho dish of larks forwarded in something more snbstan tial.th an a fragile ease of paper, so as to avort tho amalgamation into which they had entered with the contents of Master Jack’s paint box? Obituary ■■ Commodore John n. Aulldc. From tho Xcto \ v ork IHmes, April 28. Our ‘Washington dispatches announce iho death, in that city, of Commodore John H. Auliok, at tho advanced ago of 85 years. This distinguished naval officer has boon on tho re tired fist for some years, during which time bo has lived in quiet at his Lome in Washington. John H. Auliok was bom in tho State of Vir ginia in tho year 1787, and entered tho United States Navy Nov. IC, 1809, at the ago of 22 years, Ho was attached to tho frigate Enterprise as a Midshipman, when she was engaged with tho English ship Boxer in tho summer of 1618, and displayed such gallantry that ho was promoted to bo Lieutenant Doc. 9. 1814. Ho was present at all of the actions of tho Enterprise during the War of 1812-13, end carried her captures, tho Boxer and tho privateers Fly aud Mors, into port. Ho afterwards served on tho Saranac, On tario, and Constitution. After the war, ho was placed on shore-duty until 1627. In that year ho was assigned to tho frigate Brandywine, and re mained m tho Facifio Squadron until 1831, when ho was commissioned os Master Commandant, under dato of March 3. In 1834 ho was assigned to duty in tho Washington Nuvy-Yard, ana re mained thoro until 1887, when ho was given tho command of tho sloop Vincennes. In 1840 ho returned to tho Government Yard at Washing ton, hut remained thoro only a few mouths, be ing promoted to tho rank of Captain Sept. 8, 1811. After five years spent on active service at sea, Capt. Aulldc found him self again at hla old post in Washington, In tho fall of 1840. He was kept on office dufy In the Navy-Yard for four years, being assigned to ordnauco duty in 1861. In tho following year ho was assigned as Acting-Commodore to tho command of tho East India squadron, which po sition ho hold for over a year. It was during this cruise that Capt. Aulick made certain im portant suggestions relative to tho American policy toward Japan, which led to tho United States naval expedition being fitted out aud dis patched under tho command of Com modore Pony. That expedition resulted in tho opening of tho Japanese ports, to American commerce, and at tho samo time es tablished an amicahlo and profitable intercourse between tho two nations, which has been kept in all its integrity up to tho present time. Capt. Aulick was advanced to tho rank of Commodore July 10, 1802, boing soon after placed on tho re tired list In conooquonco of Ids advanced ago. During tho sixty-two years Commodore Aulick passed in tho sorvico or his country, ho spent twonty-throo years and nine months at sea, and did ovor ton years’ sorvico on shore, tho remain ing twonty-oight years being unemployed. No officer loaves a bolter record, though the events of tho lato war naturally gave younger mouinoro prominence.
