2 Iho ncwpyaper craft were reduced to iv standing posi tion. l.wii then there wero not scats enough, mid a largo member tools thnlr inuslo mid tliolr Qllmoro on tlunr legs,—a graceful, becoming, but tiresome atti tude. Thoro were about TWENTY THOUSAND PERSONA • on the floor, a sight worlh seeing Indeed. Those on tlio level could not comprehend Iho aggregate number of tho nulls In that vast assemblage. Thovlowfrom tbo balcony at thonorthend of the auditorium.was ex ceedingly fine. Tho maos was seated. Tho density ami dimensions thereof were Impressive, uud had they allliecu In mourning It would havo been a nombro sight. They wero not, however. All tbo colors In end out of tbo rainbow woro thoro, making tho seme bright, variegated, and kaleidoscopic. Tbo sun shone down through tho skylights on each aide, llgbU big up the lino of persons underneath. There woro two streams of sunshine, ouo on each side, and a dork lino In Iho middle aud on tbo outer edges. Tbo effect to an elevated observer was striking. Then there wjb tho constant motion of 10,000 fans. Altogether tbo scone without any mimic was worth tho money. IN THE OALLEHY were ibo Invttcd’gucsts, both ladles and gentlemen. Among thorn were Senator Logan, Oov, Uovaridgo, Mayor Mudlll, Jay Qould, and many railroad officials. Thu music did uofc sound os well up (hero aa ou tbo floor, and tbo visitors did not rcmnlu long, preferring tho bolter acoustic elfcct down stairs, sinn shows, It wns a dollar admission to tho depot building, ami a dollar represented four quarters, each quarter con taining 23 cents. Whllo the four quarters also repvo- Ernted In tholr aggregate of ono dollar a Jamming, Lipicczing, suffocated throng Inside tho building, 20 cents,or onequarter,represented a variety of improving sight under cover of a row of tents along LaSalle street. Hero, it wan said, could bo scon (ho trained ele phant of (bo Estranmduras dancing tbo can-can with wonderful precision ; hero also tbo famous man eating, web-footed, slab-shred lynx of Borneo; tbo blanket-sheep of Sumatra; tbo long-haired woman of tho Onr.d Mountains, and tbo tbrcc-bcadod monster from tho Cingalese Jungle. Here, too, woro prodigies of gluM-hlowuig and marvels of contortionlsm; won ders of magic snd other charming fascinations famil iar to tho country cousin. Those wero irresistible, and tho shrewd squatter who pitched his tent on La- Batlo street took lots of quarters from tho rustle pocket-book. - As a general thing tbo .inquisitive ardor of tbo slgbt-secr received its Aral check at those tents, for bo camo out with a long face, and tho pretty,' buxom lass with him expressed tbo opinion that she bad been fooled. THE INEVITABLE ALLEN. When ft great influx of strangers from tho country stirs up tho Ingenuity and enterprise of tho unprin cipled, thoro is no knowing to what extremes of impu dence and fraud a rogue will go. And an it Is micfcaa to warn our too Gambling country cousins, who gen erally avoid ono such snare only to fall into another, no moral will bo drawn from (bo stories savo ouch as the reader may deduct for himself. Ttiu attention of tbo pollen authorities is called once more to tho notorious fellow John Alton, who has already achieved n reputation for vncaboudlum quite national In its extent. Thto unblushing rascal, gifted wlihauiost Insinuating smile and allow of rhetoric, stationed himself yesterday afternoon at tho mouth of Ibo WatdilugliMi Street Tmiuol, and, placing a iVw counterfeit pieces of fractional currency be tween bis fingers, harangued tho country visitors couiowhat as follows: "Jj’lud In tho coolncsu and shade of tho grout Chicago refrigerator that reipllo from tho weariness and toll aud heat ami dual of a dry . and arid thoroughfare— -35 cents, only 15 cents—tbo dust and dirt and tho b<wt of the Jubilee cun boro bo exchanged fur tho luxu ry of a cool aud refreshing journey under Iho river; uc beat—ls cents—lighted by gas half a mllo under tho lake—takes you to Iho crib—and only 15 cents— row’s your tlmo—ahead of tho world—don’t go homo without cooling in tho great Chicago refrigerator—tho triumph of modern science over tho elements—now’s your tlmo—only 15 cents,” As ho managed to tackle none of tho knowing ones, bo succeeded In collecting a largo sum of money from those who woro unfortunate enough .to be beguiled by bln Jargon. Ills career was cut chort by a detective, seeing whom at a distance Allen departed, taking up a position at tho LaSalle street tunnel. Here bo stood, and demanded a ticket of every ono who passed. No ono having a ticket about jilni, Allen demanded 25 cents toll, ami scoured a niiilv comfortable uum by this device. As it Ib, probable that tho saloon-keepers will soon get tbo m;; j,ir portion of it, it is tbo more reprehensible. A icarcrly less creditable dovlro waa that of n man, wlioßsnamb could not ho learned, who found a mlno of wealth in a huge bundle of photographs. Among them was that of a woman of the town who Uvea in n house of ill-famo on Clark acroct, who was,sold to hundreds of eager purchasers ns the "famous quooa of iho stage, tho greatest ofhving actrceees, tho peer lc!M NcUfcon,” Tho notorious reprobate, John Me- L'iuphlln, had a ic-udy sale an Senator Pomeroy, while counterfeits of Gilmore, Gen. Sheridan, tho Chief of Police, and tho editor of a morning paper, were ua bhiftiiuglv sold to contented speculators. This pleco of infamy was commuted on Clark street, and was prolltablo to tho ingenious rogue who perpe trated It. tiid KUMnnn op visitors. To attempt to cnlimato within ten or fifteen thou- Bisml of the number of visitors In Chicago, yesterday] v.'imld bo almost a futile task. Any ouo could observe imm the Immense crowds on the Directs, especially those in tho recently “ burnt district.” that there had bocn an influx of strangers from cast and west. Oc c •pioually the number of people was bo largo that ■welkin*! was anything but pleasant. Eighty-four trains •anivolm mo am event day, aud yesterday every car was crowded. On somo cf the roads, notably the Chicago, Burlington h Quincy, tho Northwestern, and the Rock Island A I’adfic, tho tialm consisted of ten, twelve, and sixteen caro each, an of which wero uncomfortably, crowded. Tho Michigan Southern, St. Louis k Alton, and tho Mil waukee U St. Taut trains wero much larger than usual, but they woro not as much pressed ns tho other reads. Parsons who lived within ton or fifteen miles of tho dry preferred their own conveyances to tho steam cam, and thousands of them cumo in carriages to see what was going on. From conversations with rail read men and others who havo seen largo com-omycfl of people, it was learned that there wero in tho city, yesterday, from 50,000 to 00,000 strangers. Every hold was fuil, and friends woro obliged to ac conunodato those who were mmblo to secure shelter clri.whore, Tbo restaurants down-town were overrun, cud tho saloons were liberally patronized. Many ox, (ho retail stores did an excellent business, and dealers hi food, whisky, hats, and dry goods all doubtless wish there was a Jubilee every week. A I.ONU DISTANCE was traveled by many, romo coining from ns far west m Oin ih;i, as fur east ns Buffalo, ;ui far south as Cairo, mid aa far uoith u:i they live. Towns within % distance of 2M miles were literally drained cf their popu lation. This is tmo of places like Bloomington, W’lminglon, LaSalle, Joliet, Meudota, Sandwich, B:>inanuuk, Bristol, Aurora, Downer's Grove, Ilttivdali*. Michigan City, Elgin, Genova, cud on the Milwaukee lino as far an Milwaukee itoclf. Them would have been a hundred thousand persons in tin-, city wero it not for the lateness of the farming Reason, which compelled many farmers to remain at homo to pul la their corn, end perform other urgent duties. Many living near enough wont homo last night, and will return to-day, tho principal reason h.rii’g that they could net find accommodations to re main over night. Those who stayed saw tho city uy oAsuaiiT, thousands attending the evening concert, others fill ing the theatres, and tho balance perambulating tho rUv .-t.’, The night was ecrouo and lovely. The moon Wus more than half full, tho air halm}*, and the streets vre-ro brilliant with illuminated windows of stores kept open to an unusually lato hour. There was but little dr.mkcnncps nr disorderly conduct of any kind. Mid night found tho streeta still populated, and it was later V«. tore tho stillness of night came down on tho wearied c’unrsioniHts enjoying tho refreshing slumber that will prepare them for the festivities of to-day. LAST EVENING, While tho depot building was crowded to its utmost llr.’l; !;ivt evening, it failed to gratify tho musical ap jviiio of a vast concourse. While tho tbousauds filed l:i through the narrow entrances, thousands more made gc. effort to get In. Why should-they? There wroi nearly us big u crowd outaldu tho building us in e:Ji* it, aud them was ample opportunity to see and be tu'en. The windows wore all open to lot In air, and they imn'ormed (ho double duty of lotting out tho dm of voices and Instruments within. Tho air was cooler outside than In j one could travel round tho entire building to the sound of the strings and brasses, mid rnjr.y plenty of small talk. Quo could put Ids arm round his girl, and do all sorts of things not tolerable In the auditorium. And all this could ho done for nothing, while it would cost fully $2 to go Inside and have to nit and listen fur three mortal hours, or be Jammed to death. THE CONCERTS. TUB CHICAGO JUBILEE will lake its place In numbers uud uolte at least with Itio groat musical festivals of the country. These have bocu tho German Bnongorfosls, tho two Boston Jubi lees, and tho recent festival ut Uluciuuntl. It iu to bo churned with tbo two Boston Jubilees, although inferior to each In point of number of performers and of mimical effect. As u great popular demonstration, it is n great success. As a pcrfoi-mauco of popular musln for tho masses, It Is also a success. But as a legitimate musical festival, or oh a festival which will cr.orclf-o'ouy good luiluenco upon music, it is of no con* e quenco whatever. As tho managers probably did n d expe-t or intend to achieve any musical results, except to plcnno tho crowd for tho moment, hiul as Mr. Gilmore did not expect anything more aleo, it hr:; probably answered (ho purposes for which it was ln!r.’i(l'.'d. Judged musically, it cannot ho compared with either (ho Cincinnati Festival or tho Saougerfeals. Tim latter have been earnest and honest attempts to produvo a high clas t of music, oud to olovalo tho pub lic taste, from tho Gorman standpoint, ut least, which l.'» about tho only mimical standpoint now-a-days. Tho Clncluuatl Festival was devoted to tlio production of tome of tho grandest composillaus in tho wholo world of music, and six months of hard study and practice wero given to their performance, and tho result wa» tho greatest musical tucrcnn ever known in this country. Judged purely Upon its musical merit?, tho Jublloo has progressed Biiillcioutly to show that n chorus and an orchestra can bn organizad which may do somo work hereafter. This, at least is encouraging. Judged upon Us merits, however, as a popular performance of easy, popular music, ami by tho satisfaction which it gavo to tho audience, it may ho set down os a conditional ouccoss. And this, too, is encouraging, ns it augurs well for getting an audience together hereafter for something bettor. Compared with tho Bobton Jubilee, it falls hi low tluir standard, us it wan inferior iu numbers mid they bud somo exceptionally good features in 1 1m shape of solos uud concerted effects, which this did not, amt which required more or less Induing, fur which there was no tlmo iu this festival. If there is env feature iu the Chicago Jubilee which calls for on tlu’i dut hc admiration, it is tho enterprise aud energy whirl) In u faw short weeks lias' boon aide to summon ouch a inimical host together, uud drill them Into a creditable degree of musical obedience. Atthousmo tlmo, it 1j a mutter for regret that such a multitude tUouid be massed together for nothing better than (ho i; 1 ! Anvil Oliopu*, the Blur Bpanglod nMinor, and a low of tbo oratorio choruses, which aro mado tho stock pieces of every country Blnglng-school, the rnoonAMMEd. Tho music of tho programmed was solcclod with ref erence to short, quick work. Thoro is probably not a number on them which Iho singers have not snug scores of times, whllo tho orchestral numbers aro equally familiar. Thoro are no now works at all, and nothing which cnlla for any apodal degree of musical study,' Tbo choruses, such-aa "Tbo Heavens aro Tolling.” tho " Hallelujah," Verdi’s Anvil monstrosity. " Boc,luoOonquorlDg Hero Cornea,” and (ho orchestral pieces, Uko tbo Toll overture, Lcutucr’s Post overture, and tho Tanuhamer overture, have well-nigh boon worn threadbare, but they wero well adapted to tho Character of tho occasion, and, undoubtedly to a largo number of tho audience, an tho majority at both concerts woro Hlrnn gers, they were now. Many of the choral numbers woro of (bat peculiar choral rhythm which carries It self, and such numbers wero quite successful. TUB AUDIENOn-nOCm. Tho arrangements of tho largo depot interior wero slinplo in character. Tho tracks woro floored over, and Iho audieuco would have enjoyed a reasonable do f-rco of comfort bad moro attention bcon paid to seat* ng them, although it was excessively hot in tho buUdlug, owiug to tho poor ventilation and tho full stream of sunlight which poured in through tho numerous windows directly upon tho faces of iho crowd during tho malluoo. Boats wore provided only for a small portion of tho audience, and these woro of tho hardest possible description. Tbo result wan that ns it was Impossible to boar, except Immediately front of the platform,, tbo people flocked there, and wore densely wedged together, and suffered almost intoler ably, many ladles fainting and many more leaving for borne, unable to endure the discomfort. Tho gallery at tho north end of tho depot was tastefully draped with flags, banners, and ever greens, and tho bugo doors at tho south end contained the programmes of tbo afternoon and evening in let ters so urge that tboy could bo read from any pact of tho auditorium. If tbo Managers of tho festival bad dona nothing else, thoy at least aro to bo thanked for this. Wo bavo often wondered that this arrangement has not boon made before. It is a very simple one, and ono which in very useful In these largo festivals, whore hundreds of people aro often without programmes. Tho platform for tho perform ers ' was located in tho ccntro .of tho wont sldo of tho building. This was an unfortunate arrangement, and ono which was peculiarly ungrateful to (ho singers and orchestra, as (ho sounds struck point blank against- tbo oast wail and woro tbonco radiated in ovary direction in tho most confused man ner. South of tho contra of tho building only tbo first violins and reeds, and the# sopranos and tenors woro clearly oudlblo; north of the . ccntro only tho second strings and brasses and tbo altos and bassos. Thoro was no point at which tbo combined effect could bo beard in proper relation except Immediately in front, and that position was available only to a few. Tho platform should havo been placed at (bo south end of the build ing, snd then tbo sound would have had a dear swoop .suer dll would havo hoard equally well, os tho acoustics of tho building nro good. Another very serious disad vantage arising from Hu location wao tho fact (tint tho loss in height had to bo made up In length. Tho re sult was that tho orchestra was strung out to a very long distance, (bo oxtromo parts being inaudible to each other, and not under proper, control. They should havo been compact and close,andln front of tho conductor, so that ho could hold thorn woll under control and mass them at any moment for a given ef fect, - Tho sopranos and tho altos wore still further away and out of roach of tho conductor, and tho seat ing so Irregular that somo of tho ranks of tbo sopranos wore wedged in between tho double basses and xcllos, whllo many of tbo altos must bavo endured torturoj from their proximity to the tubas and trombones. Tbo tenors and bassos occupied tho entire length in tbo rear, and wero thus strung out In the somo unfortu nate manner. Had tho platform been at tbo cud, tbo mimical effect would bavo boon greatly enhanced. THE OBOANIZATION. Mr. Ollmore’a own hand,—or, rather, thirty pieces of It,—formed the nucleus of tho orchestra, and was eulfidont, both in quality and quantity of sound, to govern the remainder and hold them well together. Much tho larger proportion of tho players belonged to our city, and comprised many of our best muoidans. Tho roster was about as follows : First violins, 4*l; second violins and violas, 40 ; trumpets, 13 ; horns, 8 ; trombones and tubas, 0 ; double basses, 18 ; ’cellos, 8; clarinets, 8; oboes, 4 ; flutes, 4; fagottep, 3; drums, tympanl, fee,, 6. Total, ICO. Although the strings woro strong in number, tho brasses dominated tho tone, an might havo been expected from tho fact that no opportunity was afforded to hold them in check by rehearsal, When brasses have no restraint imposed upon them there is no tolling whoro they will go to, but they gavo tho guests a noisy welcome, and for a popular audience, brass is preferable to string music. Tho (Augers woro about in tho following pro portion : Sopranos, 200 ; altos, 125; tenors, 200; and tho basses about the sumo number; in all about 750 singers. As in every chorus, tho copranos woro tho leading part, and they woro also remarkably effective. Their tone was good and their attack* usually quick and spirited. As 'ln most choruses where but a short timo has been given to work, a few voices led tbo others, and these few voices were of great power and fiuo quality. Tho altos wero tho un fortunate beings, as they always aro. Their numbers wore so inferior to tho other parts that In tho massed singing they wero overwhelmed and utterly loot. In somo duct passages, however, ns, for instance, in tho Star Spangled Banner, where tho Jsopranos and altos took a verso together, they showed themselves to bo very effective and as steady as dock work—much steadier, in fact, than tho sopranos. Tho tenors gavo a grand volume of voice, if you didn’t happen to bo under tho leo of tho bassos, and tbo bassos wore quite effective if you wero not under tbo 100 of tho tenors. Tho sopranos, however, took caro of them selves under all circumstances, and they made them selves heard without much difficulty. Tho rcoult of all this was, unless tho hearer was favorably situated, tho choruses lacked In dearness, and any attempts .it shading wore obscure, Tho precision, howuvor, woo very good. - THE MATINEE. The mallueo was announced for 2 o’clock, but did not commence until a quarter before 3, which mode tho performance late, as tho programme was a* very long ouo. Tho crowds commenced pouring into tho building fully nn hour and a half before tho time of commencement, nml by half-past 1 tho long walk upon tho cast side of tho buildings was filled with a crowd tightly wedged in together of men, wonicu, and chil dren. Tho best of good nature prevailed, however, although everyone was melting with tho heat, ana gradually losing fractions of raiment, lints got buttered, and panicru got wrecked, and nearly every one got into tho building more or less di lapidated. No accidents happened, however, and, as there were no reserved scats, every ono shifted for himself. When tho crowd in tho building was at Us height, there woro probably about 16,000 persona in attendance, and those 16,000 had no other alternative than to face tho sun and swelter. The programme for tho afternoon was as follows : PART FIRST. 1. Now Chicago Hymn of Praise Campbell Hung to the tune of "Old Hundred,"—Chorua, Orches tra, and Military Hand. 2. Festival Overture Loulncr Orchestra, 8. “Angel of Peace.” Chorua and Orchestra, 4. Selections from favorite Operas Bellini Introducing solo/or cornet, M. Arbuckle:/or euyho non, Mr. IWjg ; clarinet , Uinaina ,* and the Jubilee Military Band. 5. Chorus—" Tho Heavens aro Tolling ” Haydn Chorua and Orchestra, C, Solo for Cornet—“ Seventh Air ”, H*.

Orchestra , and Military Band, 12. Chorus—" Nearer, My God, to Theo " Chorus , Orchestra, and Military Baud. At a quarter before 3. Mr. Qlhuoro canto to tho front, and was received with hearty and long-continued applause, which ho acknowledged in his usual gonial manner. After tbo applause hud subsided, ho took tho baton, nud (ho matluco commenced with a tw6- versed hymn, written for tbo occasion, and sot to tho music of Old Hundred, In which tho full chorus aud orchestra participated. In music of this kind, marked by a set rhythm, (lie chorus was most at homo, and, although tho words woro unintelligible, tho combined effect was good, and tho volume of touo strong and otoudy, Luutusr’a familiar festival overture, which has done duty many times In this city on festal oecuulons, and Is a sort of "Kcco quam bouum” tho world over, followed Old Hundred nud gnvo tho orchestra a chance to exhibit its quality. It is an easy work, and Although once or twice things wore a little curious and the hrarsus were having a picnic all by themselves, to which the fiddlers woro not Invited, still they got through very creditably, and a spatter of applause ran through tbo audience, which was evidently holding Its enthusiasm hi check for tho more pronounced mini* Iters of a patriotic nud Jubilant character, Keller’s 11 Angel of Peace,” which was written for tho second Dosion Jubilee, aud in a rather Inof fensive composition In choral style, and not altogether original, Is of the samo marked rhythm as Old Hun dred, and very simple, so that tho chorus walked through It and came out all right. Tbo next number was a fautdslo on themes selected from some of llolllul’s operas, for which Mr. Gilmore has a decided penchant, lightly strung together, aud introducing solos for cornot, cuphuuon, ami clarinet. This was given by Mr. Gilmore’s own hand, while tho remainder of tho orchestra looked on admiringly. In all respects this was (ho best Instrumental number on tho pro grrmino, in performance at least. Tho various soles which woro given by Mr. Arbucklo. Mr. Rlgg, and Mr. Higgins, and tbo general playing of tho baud, show that It bus not deteriorated since its lust appearance hero, al though hut little moro than ono-lmlf of (ho organiza tion 1m hero, Mr. Arhucklo’s solo playing was specially enjoyable for Its brilliancy and smoothness* The next number was "Tho Heavens are Telling,” which was led by Mr. Butterfield. It wjsa success with (ho crowd, but it would hardly bear severe criticism, and it may ho sol down, like many of tho other num bers. as very creditable, considering, ole. It would have added immensely to its effect if the musical management bad secured four compe tent singers for tho quartette passage, " The Night that Is Gone,” etc,. This being taken by tho whole chorus, tho splendid contrast of tho connection was lost. Mr. Arbucklo created a decided sensation by his capital playing of tho Do Dcrlot air, and carried off uu encore. Up to this time (ho chorus hud boon shouting all tho time. There was no let un. Everything was fortissimo if not a three "f” strain. It began to 101 l some upon tho voioos, and tho result was that tho Star Spangled Runner did not got tho benefit of full patriotic lungs, as It should. Tho so tiranos and altos took tho first verso, tho tenors and meses tho second, whllo tho solo of the third was tak en by Mrs. McGuire, who filled tho building very well, and sang with muoh spirit aud vorvo. A noticeable feature of ber singing was a very dean and bright octavo Jump. It Is needless to follow out tho pro fxammo In detail. Tho Inevitable anvil chorus was ut ho oud, and although tho musical blacksmiths woro not very, muscular and not thoroughly trained, and although some of tho anvils woro THE CHICAGO DAILY TRIBUNE: FRIDAY, JUNE (i,: 1873. not In tlmo. sttll tho old gipsy Ironmongery had a fas cinating ofroct upon tho crowd, and they demanded that Iho hammers should fashion tho time ouco more, to which Mr. Qllmoro rallior rotuclnntly consented, for oven Mr. Qllmoro hnn bocomo rather tired of tho munlo which hammered and (hundorod his Jubilees all ovor tho country. It was not Ida anvil chorus, either, for ho had no artillery or bells, aud therefore there was Just no much loss of noise. About 0 o’clock tho first-half of tho day’s work was ovor, aud tho Immense crowd slowly and with difficulty passed out of thn building end woudod Its way to supper, while tho surrounding sldo shown bent furious demonstrations to ontlco (bo curious, and tho vendors of beer, and tomonadu, and pop-corn sung loud poems In prnlso of tbolr wares. TUB EVENING CONCERT. The crowd of the afternoon had boon out of tho building but a comparatively short tlmo when tho crowd for tho evening concert begun to pour In. In addition to tho concert-going strangers, tbo citizens turned out In immense numbers, and fully 20,000 peo ple were in tho building at ouo tlmo. Except at tho extreme end of tho building, tbo rush was fearful, and at times tbo dense crowd became so wedged together that It war Impossible to move In any direction. Tho scones of tbo afternoon wero repeated and Intensified. Hundreds of people,- rather than attempt to got anywhere in tbo vicinity of (bo music stand, turned about and went homo. Many women fainted from tbo oxlromo beat and remained In that condition a long tlmo before tboy could bo got out. Whllo tbo crowd wns an eager one, tbo utmost good nature prevailed, and jests uud humorous criti cisms woro banded back and forward With tbo utmost good humor. In most parts of. tbo ball tbo crush and noise of tbo crowd rendered It well-nigh Impossible to bear tbo music si all, or at least distinctly enough to ascertain what was going on. Meanwhile, those who could not bear tbo music and could not bear tho crowding consoled tbAnsolvcs In tbo numerous sldo restaurants attached to (bo building with lemonade and Ico cream potting chnnco snatches of music, whllo. tho moro positively thiroty ones fouud their way to tho adjacent boor saloons which bad sprung up like mush rooms all around. Some reckless specimens, regard less of tho terrible accident of tho morning, climbed tho sldo columns to tho roof-trusses and perched above tho beads of tbo audicucoand bad comfortable Heats, al though tho sight was uncomfortable to timid people below. As at tbo tnallnco thoro was considerable delay and it was fully half-past 8 before Mr. Qllmoro ar rived at bis post, nu event which waa greeted with hearty ebeors by tho crowd. Tho 'programme for tho evening waa as follows: PART I, 1. Overture to "Dor Frloechutz Weber ' Orchestra, 2. Gloria from " Twelfth Moss ” Mozart Chorna nmt Orchestra, 3. Solo for Comet, " Inflammnlus ” ; ....Rossini Mr. Arouekle uml Orchestra. ‘ 4. Part Bong, " Farewell to tho Forest ’’.Mendelssohn 6.

Fanfare “MIlltRlro" 41 With a Dash". A(au*rt>. M. Arbucklc, Q. A, Pats and U, j, Itoe. 13. Anvil OUoniH Chorw* , Orchestra nnd Military hand. Three or four of tbo numbers woro repetitions from tho afternoon programme, but, no a whole, tbo even ing programme was tho best of tho two. Thin, howev er, was a merit only on tho surface, as tho increased difficulties of some of the numbers placed them be yond tbs possibility of being done ao they should, no that, on tbo whole, tbo evening performance Wns not up to tho standard of -that of tbo afternoon. Tho opening number, tho overture to “Dcr Frclschutz,” needs great dramatic power and tbo nicest of expres sion to give it its proper effect, and these It did not re ceive. It was rather a reading of tbo notes than an Interpretation of tbo spirit of Wobor’a weird music. In tbo “Gloria” from tho “Twelfth Mass” of Mo zart a bad false start was mudo but tho chorus recovered itself and succeeded in car rying it through without any further serious bitches. Mr. Arbuckio followed tho moss chorus, oud was heartily greeted when ho appeared. As ouo of tho really cxcclluut musical features of tho occasion, ho deserved it.' His number was tho “ Inflammatus,” from Rossini’s “ fltabat Mater,” and tho solo was excel lently given ; but with all respect for Sir. Arbucklo’s ability nml taste as n musician, such a chopplug-up of tho “Inliummatuo,” tho comet tubing tho the obligato, tbo accompaniment left out, and - tho orchestra taking tho * voice parts, Is a sad mu tilation even cf a composer with whoso music so many liberties can bo and are constantly taken, and strips tbo number of most of its beauty.- Mr. Arbuckio, however, got an cncoro, ami played “Robin Adair.” Mendelssohn's ex quisite part song, “Farewell to tho Forest,” was given without accompaniment, and although, with so slight a timo for ctudy, it was impossible to being out its mco points of expression, and to perform it,with (bo abso lutely automatic expression which it requires, still tho chorus carried it through smoothly. Another operatic potpourri from Rossini, like that of tho afternoon from Bellini, was played by Gilmore's own band, introducing solos by Messrs. Arbuckle, Palz, and Roc. Tbo Halle lujah chorus clusml tho first part, and went oil with considerable spirit under Mr. Butterfield's baton. The second part opened with tho “ Tnuuhausor ” over ture, which was simply chaotic tho moment tho violins took tho chromatic passages, without n perfectly pi c clse and crisp performance of which tho uvorturo falls Hut. Tbo music of tho future was evidently far be yond tbo temporary character and present uses of tho jubilee. It should have been dropped from the pro gramme altogether. It is 100 grand an overture to ho mutilated in such a ‘manner, and it is not a piece of music for a crowd eager ouly for tho . Star Spangled and tho anvils. Tho uoxb number was Mr, Owens’ “Avo Marla,’’ which was led by Mr. Owens biuiDolf, Mrs. McGuire sustaining tho solo in. very hamluomo stylo. We should have stated, also, in Its proper concoction, that Mrs. McGuire also took tho solointho “ Star Spangled Banner,” which was added to tho first part of tho programme, and created a very decided Impression in her favor, as nho bad done in tho afternoon. Tho next number was a solo for bassoon, which might havo na well hnvo been a solo for a Jowsharp or harmoulcon, as it was inaudible in tho nolso of tho crowd. Tho next three numbers woro “ Tho Heavens are Telling ” (repetition), tho “ Kaiser” overture, ami a military fanfare by Arbuckle, Patz, and Roe. Tho programme closed with tho Anvil Chorus, which was tho afternoon performance over again, but alas, with out tho cannon and tho electricity, atm other proper ties which gypsois always use when they sing at their auvils, Itc glory was gone. It was no lougcr Mr. Gil more’s Anvil Chorus. As ho himself is disgusted with tho business, and was horrified at finding it on tho programme when ho arrived hero, wo suggest that, at tho next festival tbo anvils ho dropped, at tho next tho orchestra, and fluidly tho voices, and thus wind up tho whole blacksmith enterprise. .Keller TO-DAY.

THE CITY IN BRIEF. The vivacious and truth-loving boast of our great city, tlie Journal, declares Unit “the Immense weight accumulated in front of Potter Palmer's hotel scums to bo having a bad oil'cct upon tbo foundation." Tho next item which that sprightly luminary will give tbo public may bo “ Tbo fall of Cupt, Jack baa resulted in shaking tbo enow from several pooka of tbo Himalaya Mountains," which would bo quite n8 sensible. As a mutter of fact, there la not a crack or a twist In tho stone, Iron, orglasawork of. tho building, which stands to-day an incomplete promise of a fire-proof hotel of fmlattnl mugnlflconce, upon a surer foundation than ho paper which endeavors to glvo an erroneous im pression as to its stability to tbo fow hundreds of strangers who road Its uninteresting pages. Tho police authorities made every effort, yesterday, to protect tho assembled crowds from plcltpockola. Detectives aud pcnfco-olficcra In disguiso wore scat tered everywhere. On tho West Side, nine suspicious characters woro arrested oud locked up In tho Unlon ehxct station. On tho cast side of tho Jubilee building, a dotoctlvo arrested a light-fingered fellow, named John Olcaou, who had just withdrawn Ida hand, and a pocket-book containing $l3O, from tho pocket of tho Rev. Mr, Ghiiffcc, of routine, 111. On tho person of tho thief was found a wallet which contained no monoy, but there was a return excursion ticket in it, which Indicates that a rustle has boon deprived of nemo Imngjt cash.

At half-paat 2 o’clock, Saturday morning, Officer Londegran saw a man on Folk street, near Pacific avenue, with two largo bundles In his hands. Tho olficer asked him wboro ho was taking them. Tho man feigned to bo a Gorman emigrant. When tho officer began to search tho bundles, tho man drew a chisel from Ids breast, and assaulted him. Tbo olficer de fended himself with his club, and knocked his assail ant down twice. The latter finally draw a revolver and fired two shots at tho officer, neither of which took effect. After so doing, ho run south on Pacific avenue to Taylor street, where ho was mot by Olficer Peters. As bo neared tho ofllcor, bo tired ono shut ut him, which was fommatoly spent in tho air. Before Peters could recover from his surprise, tho would-bo assassin run into a lumber yard, ut tho foot.of Taylor street, und disappeared. Peters pimmod him, but could not discover his hiding place. Tho reports of tho revolver had by thin time brought all tho officers in tho vicinity, as also Rounds man Bnrthclon, to tho assistance of Peters. Under Burlholou’s orders, the lumber yurd was at once sur rounded, und an exhaustive search mado ineldo for tho villain, which was unsuccessful. Tho bundles woro taken to the Armory Station, and woro found to contain about SIOO worth of now boots ami shoes, Tho property was Identified yesterday morning by Qcorgo Kreusuu, a shoo dealer nt No. 47(1 Btato street, whoso store was broken open at 3 o’clock yesterday morning.

Tho United States steamer Frolic, with tho survivors of the Polars onboard, arrived at tho Navy-Yard to-day about 2 o’clock. Tho Frollo la a paddle-wheel of tho fourth rate, carrying nine guns, and was detailed by tho Secretary of tho to proceed to St. Johns, and bring Capt. Tyson, of tbo Polurls ,aud bio party to Washington. As soon nn the vessel arrived, tho commandant of tho Navy- Yard- telegraphed Secretary Bobesou tho fact, and about half-past 2 o’clock tho Secretary, in company with Commodore Reynolds, Chief of tbo Bureau of Equipment and Recruiting, drove to tho Navy-Yard. Tho Frolic was anchored out In tbo river alongside tho Tallapoosa. Secretary Robeson went on board tho latter vessel, and Immediately sent for Capt. Tyson, of tho Polaris. {That gentleman soon made his appearance, %nd was invited by tho Secretary into the- cabin of tbo Tallapoosa, whoro an interview of over an hour was hold. Tho Secretary inquired, first of all, tho condition of tho survivors, and was gratified to learn that they wero nil in good health and had entirely recovered from the fatigues and hardships of their long trip In tho Arctic regions. It was not tho purpose of tho Secretary to do more to day than merely welcome Capt, Tyson and his com rades, and to boo that all their wants were promptly mot. Tho* conversation waa therefore of a general character about tho Polaris, her trip, and tho death of Capt. Hull. It appears that Tyson and Hall wero devoted friends, and tho former spoko In highest terms of tho latter. Ho said hu was an efficient and able commander, and ho is of tho opinion that ho died a natural doath from apoplexy. With regard to tho Polaris, Capt. Tyson In formed tho Secretary that sho was in ovory aspect a seaworthy vessel, and gave instances of her contests with Icebergs, which showed that had sho not been moro than usually strong she would havo been de stroyed. Tho question of tho suspected mutiny on board tho Polaris was left for another occasion, tbo Secretory desiring to proceed with tho in vestigation in a moro formal manner. Dur ing tho Interview, tho Secretary remarked that they should not probably sco tho Polaris again. Capt. Tyson replied, “ Oh, yes, you will. She will bo hero before tho close of summer.” Tbo Captain proceeded to show that, at tho timo bo and his party left tho Polaris, eho was comparatively in a good condition, and there was nothing to prevent her from coming homo. His theory is that she probably remained whero they parted with her until tho close of tho Arctic winter and would then nmko for tbo United States. Thoro was nothing in tbo conversation of Capt. Tyson to indicate that thoro had boon a mutiny on board tbo Polaris prior to tbo timo ho and his party left. There was somo insubordination among some of tho common seamen, hut nothing of consequence, and it was easily subdued. Secretary Robeson will visit tbo Frollo to-morrow, and will iustlluto a Court of In quiry, to bo composed of naval ofilcors. This will bo conducted In tbo regular way, tho wit nesses sworn and their testimony taken down. It is tho intention, of tho Secretary to publish tho whole story as soon as tho ovldeneo Is completed, in tho meantime, tho wholu party will remain aboard tho ship, and, as already slated In these despatches, no outsiders will bo allowed to visit tho Frollo. f To the Associated iVcss.l WfIUUAOED MiosmrMKK.

Shocking- Family Scandal—History of tlio Divorce* Special Dispatch to The Chicago Tribune. Nsw Your, Juno B.—-The Hov. Father Preston, YlcoChaucollor of this Diocese, who was very Intimate with tho late Mansfield T. Walworth, nml enjoyed his fullest confidence, soya that tho obscene letters re ferred to by tho parricide and his friends as having been tho cause of tho murder continued accusations against Mrs. Walworth of indiscriminate Infi delity, and assertions that Trank Is a bastard. The murdered man’s friends say that ample proof will be brought forward on the trial, if necessary, to establish tho fact that Mr. Walworth had but too much grounds for the charges against bis wife. They say that ho sustained Improper relations with her him self six months before (heir marriage, and that only upon this ground would their parents consent to their union. Tills latter fact is tho basis of tbo slur upon Frank's birth, which incited the young man to take summary vengeance upon its author. Early In Jonuory, 1871, Mrs. Walworth’s action for a separation btgan, Tho decree asked for was •* lim ited divorco on tbo grounds of cruel and inhuman treatment.” Adultery was not charged in tho papers, nor any prayer for absolute divorce. Tbo summons and complaints were served on tbo murdered man on tboSTtbof January, 1671. No notice was taken, how ever, by tho defendant. lie allowed tho matter to go by default. Shortly afterward Busbford P. Rico, Ref eree In tho case, reported granting tho decree. At tho special term of tho Superior Court be fore Justice James E. Spencer the decree was confirmed. Tho divorco contained a clause compelling tho murdered man to pay his wife certain sums of money for her support, and also for the support of her children. Mr. Walworth seemed very much exas perated when ho hoard of tho entering of tho dgcroo, for tbo reason that it compelled him to pay alimony to Mrs. Walworth, and also support tho children. On tho Ist of May following, In order to avoid payiugollmouy, his counsel made a motion, in tho Superior Court, to open tho default and set aside the decree. This motion was never argued. After matters had rested awhile, a correspondence began between tho counsel, and a com promise was effected, by which tbo clause in tho decree allowing alimony to tho divorced wife was stricken out. In all other respects, however, it was allowed to stand. THE JUDICIARY.
