THE GERMANS. They arc Rapidly Drifting Away from Iho Republican Party. Tlio tl New Departure ” Movement Spreading all Over Town. Mass-Meetings in tho Ninth and Six teenth Wards Last Evening. {The German Heart Fired by Gorman Orators. Action of the Chicago Saloon- Keepers* Union. Its Members Kesolvo to Keep Open Their Houses Next Sunday. SIXTEENTH*'WARD.* A Gorman mass meeting was hold yesterday evening in Folz’ Hall, on tho comer of North and Olyboumo avonuos, "for tho purpose of ap pointing a Ward Committeo to co-oporato with those appointed ixx other wards. Tho Hall was Well filled with tho citizens of that part of tho North Division whonro.in favor of tho “Now Departure." Tho mooting was called to order by ox-Alder tnan Goorgo K. Schmidt, who statod they woro familiar with tho object of tho meeting, and trusted that they would act harmoniously with their friends in other wards which had already organized. Tho hour hud come for tho Gor mans, regardless of former party affinities, to act together. Mr. Loicbt, tbo brewer, was elected President, end George Mouzor was elected Secretary. Mr. Thiomo said that though bo bad boon seven years in Chicago, bo bad never before ad dressed a political meeting. Why? Because bo felt an ■unconquerable repugnance to more party wrangles, and saw, with regret, that bis country men served as tails to tbo bites of both political organizations, and did tboir dirty work. Tbo Gormans, whom common views of life should have bound together, did more servile work, wbilo, if united, they could baVo claimed a place at tbo first table. Why bad bo come into tbo political area? Since bo believed that now or novor, wbou both parties woro in the throes of resolution, ‘wan tbo timo to soizo that position in tbo political world of -America which they needed in order to tako a profitable part in the advancement of tbo public weal. Only when they took off their badges of servitude and’acted as American citizens, could they got out of tbo disgraceful position they bad occu pied. Tbo Gorman oloniout in the impending contest for. freedom of Iho poreoh and of busi ness, and 0r,..!;, nt monopolies and corruption would lake the ivaderabip, and prove that they woro not more cattle. They would show that they bad (bo Intelligence and courage to i :ako the platt\ :a for tbo groat battle of freedom, and load / the advance in tbo battle. Any ono who wished to gain an iniluoutial position mirlut assume an attitude which demanded esteem.. That was true of individuals and of parties. They strive to assume that attitude, when they throw off tbo old party yoke, and unite in ouo new. grand organization. But not to'gain peculiarly Gor man ends, but to go to men of other nntiotvliH tios and say to them, lloro are a hundred thou sand Germau-Amoricans like ouo rauu, undortbo banner of freedom and order, determined—not to secure boor on Sunday—but to overthrow tbo venal strumpet which bad occupied the throne of tbo Goddess of Freedom, and dishonored the Republic at homo and abroad. They would try to mako tbo American. name honorable again, and nhow that thn adopt ed citizens are tbo llrst to engage in that work. On that platform they would not bo without allies. Tbo movement was in the hearts of the people. They must stand together, and repel all attempts to divert tboir attention. In all the other cities of America tboir move ment was mooting with favor. Moat of tbo English papers had not yet soon tbo signifi cance of thoTtnovomont, not knowing that the Gormans were fighting only for prin ciple. They would in November elect a Mayor and Council, sot aside tbo Sunday laws, ami have a bettor police department. Then tbo now party would carry Illinois, and four years hence rule at Washington and mako it tbo real seat of Government, and not an arena for thieves and demagogues. William Yocko, Esq., an old resident of tbo ward, said tbov all know what they sought—to throw off tbo yoke of oppressive laws. They all understood very well what those laws wore. It was an attempt to proscribe to them what they should not do Sunday. So long as they amused themselves peacefully on that dov, tbo Qovom mout bad no right to interfere' with them. Tbo Constitution guaranteed them free dom of conscience and of religious belief. Only a few American fanatics objected to that. Tbo Gormans who lived boro as froo citizens could not bo subjected to tboir tyranny. Tbo Gor mans bad lived boro for years and bad helped to build up tbo property of tbo city. His ex perience had taught him that tbo selling of beer on Sunday did not increase the amount of crime; thought it bad boon declared it did, and that, therefore, the Sunday closing was a police regu lation. Tho subject was ono with which bo was familiar. Ho referred to statistics on tho sub ject from April, 1872, up to last November, when tho Sunday closing wont into effect, and from that timo up to May ID, tbo records of tbo Criminal Court showed that in tbo first periods there woro 28 convictions for assault with a deadly weapon, 15 for riot, 19 for robbery, 227 for larceny, aud 7 sent to tbo Penitentiary for burglary. In tbo second period, thoro woro: assault, 86, riot 20. robbery 15. larceny 231, and sent to tho Peniten tiary, burglary, etc., 14. That showed that keep ing open Sunday was not tbo cause of crime.' and closing them did not diminish it. Thero wore as many cases in tbo Police Courts after as cjforo. That disproved all tbo statements made on tbo subject. There woro crimes committed on Sunday before, but they woro committed now. There bad boon so many assaults on tbo streets lately that it was hardly safe to go out. Nor was any difference made between low doggeries and decent saloons. Thoselow boles wore tbo causes of many crimes, but they should bo dis tinguished from respectable places. Those evils of which tbo Gormans complained could bo remedied, but it could bo done only by peaceful cud united action. They must bo quiet, moder ate, and sober, Alone, they bad not the power to wiu, and they must, and bo behoved they could,unitolwitb monof othornationalltios. When Americans learned that tboir demands woro mod erate and moderately made, they would find friends among them. Thoro must be English speaking mootings, and give a friendly welcome to ah Americans who would aid them. There Knust bo no disorder and no intemperate lan guage. Ho referred to tbo census to show that the Gormans woro not strong enough to aot blodo. They must organize, and pursue tbo path lio had pointed out. and then victory was in tboir power—ho could not doubt it. Tbo German papers bad buried tbo hatchet, and tbo Gorman people should follow their example, and go for ward for the contest in November. James Ennis was called out aud spoke briefly. None of them woro in favor of a noisy or an in fidel Sunday. What they said was, that what was right on six days was right on tho seventh,' It was not for any Modill to say on what doy they should not drink water, boor, or coffee. Ho sug gested that tho movement suould not bo looked on as a beer or a Gorman movement, but as one pf American citizens, who were opposed to oil puritanical legislation. They had all tho Gor mans, nine-tenths of tho old native American Democrats, and a largo proportion of tho Irish. They could carry tho city by 10,000. if instead of having simply German mootings, • they sought to gain men of other nationalities and bad them represented on the Committees, etc. i hoy must also forgot all old differences, and win a victory which would make tho Moodys and tho other preacher-fellows who thought they bad tho city in their pockets, stare with amaze ment.' A Committee on Resolutions was appointed which reported some resolutions olmilar to those adopted m the Bovcntoonth Ward. The following Ward Committee was appoint ed: William Bolllnghauser, Mathias Frnnzcn, R Thiomo, Otto Polzor, William BartUolomo, Will iam Strunk, R. G. Bmitz, and Fritz Motzko. ANNOUNCEMENT, Tboro will bo a mass-mooting for tbe Eight eenth Ward, Monday evening, at Turner Hall: for (ho Eighth \Vard, Tuesday evening, at Turn Hall Vorwarls, and for tho Nineteenth Ward. Wednesday evening, at Tumor Hall. The cell for tho latter is signed byOol. Ezra Taylor, Pastor Hartmann ami others. The solo uso of Folz Hall, Burlington Hall, North Sido, and Vorwarts Tumor Halls, Orpheus Hall, and Thielemann’s Theatre has been tendered, froo of charge, for tho cam paign. ' NINTH WARD. Those citizens of tho Ninth Ward opposed to tho present temperance law, and U o'clock ordi nance, assembled last evening at Vorwarl’s Turner Hall, on West Twelfth street, for tho purpose of effecting an organization to oppose all temperance candidates at next fall's election. Tho mooting was called to order by Mr. Joseph Hartman, who stated Us object. Mr. M. Kooloy was nominated for Chairman, but declined on account of not being familiar with tho objects of tho mooting. 0. L. Nioholf was then nominated and unanimously elected, and, on taking tho Chair, said that ho did not belong to tho Ninth hut to tho Eighth Ward, but being urged would preside at this mooting. li.,Amkorg was elected Secretary. A motion being made and carried that proceed ings of tho mooting bo hold In tho Gorman lan guage. Mr. 0. F. Poriolat vigorously denounced Bitch action, saying that It was an Insult to tho Americans present, and that Americans should speak in iho American language. Mr. M. Kooloy was surprised at Mr. Poriolat using such language, as It had boon understood that tho mooting would ho a Gorman mooting. Tho President said ho hoped that tho motion to conduct tho mooting In Gorman would bo withdrawn, as all iho citizens of iho ward woro invited, and nt tho eamo time made a speech, denouncing Superintendent Washburn for his mean action In enforcing tho temperance law, and said that all tho citizens of tho ward, regard less of nationality, should bo onlietod In this cause to havo that maa ousted from his posi tion. A motion-woe then made, and carried, that iho proceedings bo held in English. A motion was made, and carried, that tho resolutions passed at tho mooting in tho Seven teenth Ward bo also adopted for tho Ninth Ward. A motion was mado, and adopted, that a com mittee bo appointed to select a committee of five to confer with tbo committees of otbor wards. Mr. A. C. Hosing was then called upon for a speech. Ho remarked, in explanation of Mr. Poriolat’s remarks, that lie would say a few words to tbo English-speaking people present. Tbo movement bad been started by the Gormans and tbo Gorman press to eocuro tboir rights, not as nationalistic Gormans, but first to oulist tbo 100,000 Qormaus in tbo city, and tbon invito all otbor citizens to join m tbo good cause, and tbon they would march victoriously to tbo polls noxt fall, and carry every thing before them. Committees had boon ap pointed at tbo several ward mootings to confer with, tbo English-speaking citizens, and got tboir expression. Ho was sorry that Mr. Pori olat bad got oxcitod, as that gentleman was a devilish good follow, and ho should not liko to boo him turned out of tho mooting. Tbo speaker then proceeded in Gorman, and said that tbo Germans in Chicago should work bard to socuro a victory next fall. Tbo tompornuco fanatics bad to bo couvincod that tbo votes of tbo Gor man Liberals woro wanted to elect good mon to ofilco.' Ho spoke dpprecatingly of the ac tion of tbo Chicago Turners in organizing a separate movement, which seems to bo intended to create a split. Lot them see to it that no disorganizes would bo tolerated in tboir ranks. Mi*. Medill, bo said, was elected by tbo votes of tbo Germans, because bo had promised, and often told him himself, bo would treat the Gor mans liberally; but, being pressed bard by the fanatics, bo ultimately succumbed to them, aud wail now tbo worst enemy tbo Gormans bad In ibis city. It showed bow peaceful and woll inciiuod tbo Gormans in America woro when tboy submitted to such infa mous laws. In Germany they rebelled when tbo price of boor was raised a few pennies. They did not wish ‘to rebel, but tboy would go to tbo polls and show tho aristocracy of tbo city that they could not bo suppressed without a fierce struggle. Tbo Gormans woro taxpayers as well as the riob “Avonoodlos,” but yet. where tbo Gormans lived tho streets woro raucldy and neglected, while on tbo avenues aud boulevards, everything was clean and paved. But they would show them mores noxt fall, and con vince them that a German vote was aa valuable as an American’s. Ho urgently called upon tbo Gormans to bo united, and by no moans bo diverted from tbo good cause, —then would bo tbo victory bo theirs, os sure as tho sun would riso this morning. Tbo rich, who bad tboir wino and boor in tho cellar, could stand a Sunday law, but a poor working man, who only bad ouo room for bis family, could not stand it because Sunday was bis only day of rec reation aud enjoyment,and nothing remained for him but work, work, work. It was for tho poor workingman ibis movement was inaugurated, and lot them swear to tho Almighty that there should bo a change. Gon. Herman Liob was next introduced, and said that ho thought it unnecessary to fire tbo Gorman heart to unity and action, as every Ger man iu tbo city know wboro bo stood, and every one was steadfast in bis purpose, and all that re mained to bo done was to make proselytes, aud therefore otbor nationalities should bo urged to come into tboir circle. Had tbo Democrats boon consulted, ore Ibis things would bo different. Ho was not fighting for boor and wino, but for liberty. lie bad warned tbo Germans not to make a Gorman move ment of this, as it would alienate others, aud make them belligerent, and, therefore, Ameri cans, Irish, and Scandinavians should bo invited to take part iu tboir proceedings. They should also understand tbo dangers that woro threaten ing thorn. Ho was opposed not only to American Know-Notbiugism. but also to foreign Know- Notbingism. Ho chon introduced the following resolutions, which woro unanimously adopted: Resolved, That in view of tbo cosmopolitan character of the pcoplo of this city, tho great diversity of their tastes, habits, customs, mode of thinking,aud religious opinions, it is unnecessary, unwise, and unjust, for the city, iu tho cxcrciso of its lawful police powers, to require of its citizens upon compulsion any other or different rule of conduct upon ono day of-tho week then is by law required of them upon tho six other days. Jteaolced, That at all meetings hereafter called wo invito the attendance aud co-operation of all who ap firovo tho sentiments contained in tho foregoing reso ution without regard to thoir nationality, politics, or religion. The Committee appointed to nominate five gentlemen for a Campaign Committee, reported the following, who woro elected: F. Hartman, Dr. Mattboi, Louis Amborc, Max Sounonsboiu and Jacob Moore. Tho mooting tbon adjourned. SALOON-KEEPERS* UNION, Tbo Saloon-Keepers’ Union, now called the Union of Liberal -Minded Citizens, bold another mooting yesterday afternoon, at tho Globe Theatre. Tbo attendance was not specially large. Those who wore present paid tboir duos with much apparent pleasure. Tbo Chair regretted tbo small number, and hoped all who woro there would do what they could to aid the new departure which was start ing in tbo city. Several now members were elected, nearly all of them Qormaus. Mr. Schwartz protested against tho election of ono candidate, since ho had not paid hia debts. Tho man thus reflected upon started to ex plain how Mr. Schwartz had made war on him in tho papers, and tried to blacken his character. Not being a member, ho was not allowed to con clude hia remarks, and tho subject was disposed of by lotting him in. ‘ Tho report of tho lawyer of the Union was road. It was not on encouraging document, tolling them that tho laws they complained of wore constitutional. If they all violated them', however, there would ho so mauy cases that tho courts would bo swamped. Ono gentleman thought legal advice was more expensive than useful. In November they had boiler vote for trustworthy men who would not enforce tho law. Ballots woro cheaper than law yers. ’ Mr. Zonlschock told his experiences in tho law courts, and urged uulty. Mr. Bchwuchow resigned as Secretary, and Mr. Metz was elected and promised to do his duty faithfully—which meaus to write a good hand. In order to give the Temperance fanatics a slap In tho face, it was resolved that tho “ mem bers of tho Union shall keep open Sunday, bub quietly, respectably, and without musio.” .It Was proposed that tho Union employ a couple of lawyers, two for each Division, to look after members who might ho brought up at tho Bailee Courts. A JmHoiary Committee of three from each Division was appointed to look after those cases. A resolution proposing co-oporatiou with oilier organisations, and also pledging members not to take any papers except tho SUtals ZcUuny, etc., since it was not proper to onoourago “mucker” newspapers, was laid on tho table. Mr. Zonirohok declared that any snob pledge was impossible. If ho had only tho German pu THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: SATURDAY, MAY 24, 1873, pora in his saloon, people would say ho had a one-horse shop. Tho Chair gave some advice, urging them to work for the fall election ami capture tho Com mon Council, The policy of petitioning tho Connell to repeal Its offensive regulations was discussed. It was decided that Iho regular mooting of the Union should ho hold at No. 45 North Clark street. Tho sum of $lO was received from a sympa thizer, a cigar-maker. Several gentlemen grow furious about a para graph in the Union recommending tho election oroftturo bko M* 1 * Tulcy as Judge,.instead of Williams. This fact that tho Union supported Mr* Iniloy made some of them doubt his fidelity to tho Gorman cause—others thought the re commendation arose from negligence. Tho mooting adjourned. JUBILEE NOTES.

Tbo first of a series of social Blblo-roodings will bo bold in tbo First .Congregational Church, corner of Ann aud Washington streets, on Mon day evening. About half-past 1 o’clock yostorday a firo broke out in the roar of No. 88 Holt street, in a one-story frame building owned by Fred Scbrama. It was extinguished without turning in an alarm. Damage, $25. At 2 o’clock yostorday afternoon, two wagons collided at tbo comer of Canal aud Van Buron streets. A boy named Carl Brown was thrown out of a wagon, ami seriously injured. Ho was attended by Dr. Price. About half past 6 o’clock last evening a man named George Bioclara, of No. 70 Fourth atreot, was run over by tbo Assistant Firo Marshal’s wagon, at tho comer of Milwaukee avenue and Fourth street. Ho was taken to a drug store near by, and attoudod by Dr. Jonklnsou, who pronounced bis injuries serious. Yesterday morning Mr. R. Forsyth, a former General Freight Agent of tbo Illinois Control Railroad, and now a business man at tho lum ber market, accidentally foil into tbo river wbilo attempting to jump from a schooner to a tug-boat. Ho was rescued by tbo crow of the latter vessel, none tbo worse for tbo involuntary bath. Tbo ladies and gentlemen having in charge tbo several cemeteries met at tbo Gardner Houso yesterday, and decided to moot every day noxt week, to prepare crosses ond otbor monu mental devices for tbo graves. Duo notice of tbo place of mooting will be given, and young ladies aro cordially invited to loud a helping baud iu tbo patriotic work. Tbo Board of Public Works issued tbo follow ing building permits yesterday : Adam J. Wcck lor, 8-story aud basement brick, 20x40 foot, southwest comer of Chicago avenue and Pino street; E. L. Barber, 2-story and basement brick, 16x25 feet, Twenty-ninth street; 8. Hy man. 4-story and basement brick, 80x50 feet, northwest corner of Clark and South Water streets; John O’Connor, 2-atoryand basement brick, 22x40 foot, No. 507 Milwaukee avenue. Peter Lind, a Bridgeport teamster, while driv ing along Randolph atreot yesterday, ran into a break in tbo pavement, at the corner of Fifth avenue, with such force os to unseat himself and bis little boy, 8 years old. Tho child fell directly behind tbo horses’ foot, striking on his bead, but, fortunately, tbo team stopped before tbo wheels reached his body. Tbo gentle parent Sicked up bis boy by ono arm, Just as ho would a omijobn, and, swinging him into the wagon, remarked, “Ho van friton’d more as hard I” A paragraph appeared in The Tiiiodhe of yesterday, under tho head .of “ City in Brief,” which stated that Mr. Thomas Korby, a porter in tbo employ of Field. Loiter A Co., was bold for trial iu tho Criminal Court, iu SSOO bail, by Justice Bauyon, on tbo charge of stealing throe rolls of carpet from bis employers. The facta aro that Mr. Korby was arrested on that charge, but was honorably discharged; bis employers having discovered that tboy woro in error, did not appear against him. The item wjib taken by our reporter from tho calendar-sheets of tbo Court, and tbo entry was tbo mistake of tbo Clerk. A Borlouß runaway occurred at tho comor of Canal and Harrison streets on Tliursdav after noon, which may result fatally to Sir. 0. Daw won, of tho firm of J. G. Gindolo A; Co,, stone cutters, at No. 613 Lumber street. Ab Mr. Daw son was turning tho corner of tho atroeta above named in his buggy, his horso auddolv sluod, and, turning tho buggy ovor, Mr. Dawson was thrown out on tho curb-stone. Besides two Borioua scalp wounds, the outer table of tho skull was fractured. 110 was taken to a drug store near by aud ottondod by Dr, Fleming. Upper hia sldllful treatment Mr, Dawson is rap idly improving, but is still in a critical condition. Tho Lincoln park driveway, yesterday after noon. was comfortably crowded with fast horses, and lined with hundreds of interested specta tors. Tho track was in fine condition, and tho weather of that bright, cheerful, and breezy character which causes man aud boast to fool like now animals. Good speed was shown by many horses, and the excitement of the scone was enhanced by about twenty closely-matched teams, which chased each other while they woro on tho ground. If the Lincoln Park Commis sioners only had tho proper appreciation for a little fast trotting now and then, they would give tho hoys another day in the week in which to air their horses. A lady, who has evidently grasped tho idea very thoroughly, writes to inquire how to attract • tho attention of tho scavenger, Sbo sayo, “I was startled by tho sound of his boll, and on go ing to look for him saw him driving up the alloy, looking neither to the right nor to the left, nor making tho slightest pause. If that is a sample of tho way tho work fs to bo done this summer, south of Thirteenth street, tho contractor might as well save his money and horseflesh, for it is a more farce.” Tho lady is quite right about its being a farce. As to tho best moans of attract ing his attention, it is probable that a pail of dirty water or a healthy brick-bat, properly di rected, might have the desired effect. QUEEN VICTORIA. Colobrntion of Her .Birthday by tbo British Kcsldonts of Chicago, banquet at lito Shcnnnn, The GBth birthday of Her Most Gracious Ma jesty, Queen Victoria, which' occurs to-day, was celebrated last evening by tho British residents of Chicago and their friends by a banquet at tbo Shorm&n House. Tho preparations for this anniversary wore made with considerable atten tion on tbo part of tho Gommlttoo, and no pains wore spared by those gentlemen to mako tho affair an assured success. It was so in everything but tho banquet. There wore about ICO gentlemen present, Englishmen most of them, although here and there could ho soon somo eminent jurist who was born undor tho stars and stripes, or whose membership was that of somo kindred society. '. Tho gathering had ample tlmo to wait in the dining-room. There was no especial need for waiting. Tho Committee had made all necessary arrangements for a punctual dinner, but until long after half-past 0 tho unfortunate gentlemen endeavored to while away tho dismal interval between 8 o’clock and 0:46 by drinking water, and wondering why dinner was not ready. When dinner was ready tho gathering filed In and seated themselves. When everybody was seated, tbo Bov. Canon Street pronounced a short grace, after which the Britons waited for their soup. When tho dinner camo to an end, the Apollo Musical Club sang “Non Nobis Domino,” and then the gentlemen smoked their cigars. Tho Chairman, W. Charles, Esq., called tho gathering to order, when letters of regret wore received from Qon. McArthur, Gon. M. B. M. Wallace. Y. O. Bocord, and Dr. Dyas, after which a poem by Mr. James Aiken, of Minnesota, was road. It was bettor in sentiment than in metro and rhyme. Tho President then proposed tho health of “ Queen Victoria, tho moat excellent of wlvos oud most constant of widows,” which was re ceived with tho most enthusiastic cheers. Robert Horvoy, Esq., in •reply, roue to deliver ibo address of tbo occasion. Ho opened with a brief sketch of tbo poacoful reign and lovoly personal character of this eminent lady, allud ing in eloquent language and with deep fooling to Bomo of tbo most im portant aebiovomonts of bor administration, especially that through bor wisdom America bad boon led to rooognizo tbo truth that she bad no bottor friend than England and England’s noblo Queen. [Applause.] The address concluded with a brilliant and eloquent peroration, as fol lows: “This is our earnest and heartfelt hope, that tbo Supremo Ruler of all ovonts may long spare ‘Tbo Queen’ to rulo a grateful and contented people, and whon in His wisdom sbo is called from tbo high station which sbo has so wortbly filled, to rocoivo that reward which wo aro woll assured shall at last bo bostowod upon a faithful and lionost heart, tbo memory of bor gentle reign and lovoly life will still survive, and Uvo in history, frosb in eternal youth, exempt from chango or decay, with a beauty and a grandeur over gathering, and tbo triumphs of a distinction that can novor die, ever to bo remembered whilo tbo human boart beats responsive to tbo touch of all that is noblo, and beautiful, and truo.” “ God Bavo tbo Queen ” was then sung by tbo wbolo gathering, led by tbo Musical Club, after which throe hearty cboors woro given for Quoon Victoria. “ Tbo President of tbo United States ” was of fered, and responded to by Mr. John Lylo King, in tbo absonco of Gen. McArthur. While this talented gentleman was compelled to give utter ance to an entirely impromptu address,ho acquit ted himself so happily as to loavo no room to .regret tho change, ovon though tbo mooting woro sorry for tho absonco of tbo illustrious politician whoso place bo took. Ho was loudly applauded. Tbo Gleo Olub sang “All Honor to tbo Soldior Give.” also received with cheers. “The British Empire” was tbo next toast, by Mr. Charles. Tho speaker briefly surveyed tbo course of tbo British Empire from tbo days of Egbert during tbo 1,010 years that intervened between tbo first of bis reign to tbo present day. At mention of tbo names of liiulmid Oubden, Jolm DiipLt, William Glad stone, and John Stuart Mill, ibo speaker was interrupted with applause. Representatives of Scotland and Wales woro hoard, after whom John F. Down was called

upon for tho East Indies. His speech was fiery, eloquent, and tolling, and tbo perpetual out bursts of applauso testified to tbo intense in terest with which bo was listened to. Tlio.Gloo Club Bang 14 Tho Flag that Braved a Thousand Years." Tho toast “Her Majesty’s Minister, SlrE. Thornton, K. C. 8., aud roprcsontativoß of Groat Britain In tho United Slates,” replied to by James Warraok. “Tho Armies and Navies of Groat Britain and tho United States," was replied to by CoL Baker for Groat Britain, and Thomas S. McClelland for America. “ The Rod, White, and Blue" was then sung by the Glee Club. “Tho Land Wo Livo In" was responded to by J. 0. W. Bailey. 41 Tho Star Spangled Banner” was sung by tho Club. Other toasts, “ThoCity of Chicago," 44 Tho Press," aud “Tho Ladies," woro also cheerfully and effectively responded to. 44 Tho Charge of Balaclava" was recited by Mr. Thomas Wright. Tho assembly adjourned at a late hour. * DIDN’T TVORK. Bold Attempt of a Hackman to Rob a Citizen. James F. Daniels, a printer doing business on West Lake street, mot with a singular adven ture about 11 o'clock last night. Whilo stand ing on West Madison street, near tho bridgo, ho was hailed by a hackmau, who inquired if bo was waiting for an omnibus. Daniels replied in tbo affirmative. Tbo hackman asked wboro ho was going. Daniels said to Tub Tnunms office. Tho hackman told him to jump into his vehicle and he would bring him thoro for 10 cents. Daniels accepted tho offer. Before tho hack had proceeded very far tho driver spoke to a rough-looking man who was riding on tho box with him, tolling him to got insido, ns it would cost nothing more. Tho rough-looking man did so, and tho hack wont on. Protty soon Daniels felt a hand groping around in tho vicinity of his pockets, and his heart began to boat wildly. Ho reached out cautiously for tho inner knob of tho door, tried it, and found that it turned easily. The discovery made his heart boat all tbo more wildly, as bo bad determined to risk his nook in a jump, and thoro was nothing to hinder him but tho rough-lookiug mau. Tho hack suddenly dashed around tho corner of Fifth avenue, and tho tho terrified typo wont out through tho door, landing on his buck in tho middle of tho street. Tho rough-looking man with tho in quisitive baud stuck .out Ins head, and wautod to know if Daniels was going to tho Southern (meaning tho railroad depot, probably), Dan iels said no ; not if he know birosolf. Tho rough-looking man was about to remark that a mistake had been mado, wbon a policeman ap- Soared. Daniels called out to him for ossistaueo, ut before tho officer could comprehend tho situation tho hack was out of sight. Among tho hackman of Chicago thero are some honest men apd not a, few scoundrels. Tho lattor would rathor rob an unsuspecting person of a ten-doliar bill than earn it in a legitimate manner, and they arc continually engaged in concocting what they are pleased to term “stiffs." Tbo newest and most daring 41 stiff" has boon exposed by Daniels, who narrowly escaped being robbed of a watch and considerable money in some dark street, and it is to bo hoped that other people who protend to have common souso will avoid those haokmon who have lately gono into tho omnibus business. Before mooting with tho hack, Daniels cashed a draft in a store on Madison street, near Clinton, audit is probable that tho thieving driver ana tho 44 rough-looking man,” who was hia pal, ob served him. DESTRUCTIVE FIRE. Loss, 85,3u0— Cn*i»or AVnllor, J. «tor«r, nml William* 6c Hull Hie Victims. Tho alarm of Are from Cox 182, at half-past 0 o'clock last ovonlng, was occasioned by tho dis covery of lire in a row of two-story frame build ings, Nos. 76, 77, and 78 Michigan street, owned by John Davis. The flames spread with groat rapidity, and before they wore subdued had con sumed $5,680 worth of property. Tho fire had its origin in a board partition in a blacksmith shop, which was ignited by a hot casting. Tho buildings wore damaged $600; covered by iu auranco.

Tho first ana second stories Of No. 70 wore occupied by Williams A Hall’s brass foun dry. Their loss was difficult to estimate, there being no many small and unfinished castings In their slock; but tho proprietors believe It to bo about SB,OOO, insured in Eastern companies for $6,000. Tho insurance is necessarily incom plete, because of tho absence of the owners of the property. MARKETS BY TELEGRAPH.
