STISNWiYS’ SQUARE GEM We desire to call tbs attention of those who still prefer a piano of the square form to BTEINWATS SQUABB GRANDS, with the new patented “Duplex Scale.” This improvement adds immensely both to the power and even ness of tone, and makes the STBINWAT SQUABS GRAND incomparably superior to any other Square Piano. STEINWAYS' SQUARES Surpass the Square Pianos of all other manufacturers in all the essentials cl a superior Instrument. STEINWAYS’ NEW PARLOR GRAND Is another evidence of the extraordinary value of the "Patent Ihiploi Scale.” It baa all the power, volume, and effectiveness of the former foil grand, while it is bat 6 feet 8 inches lons, precisely the length of the Square Plano, and has the farther advantage of the natural and graceful form that no Square Piano can while the price la within (50 of Stein way*’ high eat priced Square Plano. mmm Superb Uprights Are the moat desirable Parlor Planoe now made. Their volume of tone is of the most exquisite musical charac ter—pore, sympathetic, and perfectly pliable; while their capacity for long standing in tone Is most remarkable, ex celling eren the "Grand” and "Squares,” which hither to hare stood without a rival In this respect. They are the only 4 * Uprights ”■ that have stood the tost of time and the sere rest of trials, and can therefore be conscientiously recommended. SMTTHMIXON, General Horthwestem Agents, 162 State-st.

Gilmore’s Out-Door Concert at Hyde Park. THE NAUTICAL PHASE. THE JUBILEE, like, the moon, bad several phases. There was the architectural phase, the musical phase, the suburban phase, and the nautical phase. - The nautical phase appeared yesterday, when a large number of citizens went to Calument or Sonth Chicago—a rose by either name will smell as sweet—in order to be present at the ceremonies which shonld open to the world Calomel Harbor, or, as the invitations - had it, “ inaugurate the harbor.” The space of 10 miles or so which unhappily intervenes between Chicago and- Calumet was overcome by a pair of railroad trains on the Illinois Central and Michigan Southern Boads, and by a fleet, consisting of two of Mr. Good rich’s steamers—the Alpena and the Corona— and three togs, whose names are carelessly for* gotten. The notables evinced an extraordinary preference for water, and went that way, the train being filled with citizens who are not notable, because they have not been in politics, and have sedulously devoted their lives to pri vate business. The trains were full and the boats were full, and the lake was full, and the people were full— of fun. A list of the names of those present win be found in the directory. AH the notables who went around the city on the circle of glory circumscribed on Friday were on hand. The names of the standing excursion party of Chi cago, those useful and übiquitous gentlemen who chaperone strangers, and perform other acta of kindness serviceable to the city, have been published many & time and oft,’* and will be again, until they go one by one on a final excursion to Bosehill, whence they won’t come back any more. They were all in the enjoyment of health and cigars, and were nobly eloqnent on the glories of the city they love so well. It ■ was. a (thoughtful precaution to send several boats with /the notables, so that if one went to the sandy bottom of the lake a remnant might bo saved for future trips. Everybody enjoyed the sea breeze, the ladies, the sunshine, and the view of the city, which* can be seen to fine advantage off shore. Nothing remarkable oc curred on the voyage, though it was amusing to see & West Side Pork Commissioner vainly try ins to point out Humboldt Park to an amiable stranger, who could not see across the opaque city. THg TWAINS ABETVED before 3 o’clock, and the boats steamed up the new harbor a few minutes later. There was a -largo gathering of persons on shore, which was swelled by hundreds from ithe boats. Two or three bands played, bells • rung, artillery blazed, the crowd cheered; and Christopher Columbus (since dead) was not 1 prouder when he trod the soil of a uew conti nent than Col. Bowen when he saw large steam ers for the drat time moored to the wharf of the South Chicago Canal and Bock Company. There was a stand for speakers, and about 3 o’clock Mayor Cady, of Hyde Park, called ?the meeting to order, and nominated Collector r Judd for presiding officer. Of course he was elected. WHAT KB. JUDD SAID. Mr. Judd said: Mr. Cady requested me to wel come thiß large assemblage of people—citizens of Chicago, and invited guests from other cities, and from the surrounding country—to view the opening of this harbor, which is only one of the neat number of the grand improvements about Chicago. But yesterday many of yon who are here to-day viewed with undisguised feeling of pleasure a belt rail way encircling the City of Chicago. The Chicago River, with its great system of docks to receive the freights of the world, with this new harbor, only forms one of the grandest systems of docks and landings in the world t built for the future of the growing City of Chicago. Here are harbor facilities for not only the North and West but for the entire world. Some of you here to-day remember when the harbor of Chi cago River was not nearly so prominent and promising as is this harbor that we now look upon. One of the first of the schemes for internal improvements, was the opening of a contiguous road for the pass age of steamers from the Mississippi River through what is now the Illinois & Michigan Canal. Not many days since a convention of gentlemen assembled at Bt. Louis for the avow ed purpose of discussing the best means of en larging the facilities of navigating the waters of the West, and increasing the means of trans portiijg freights to the seabord. One of the moat < remarkable things in connection with that j convention, —and I assure you there/ were few remarkable things in connection with it, —one of the most remarkable thi’Aga in connection with this great convention wee that not one word was said about the su p< jrior facilities afforded by our Illinois & Mich igan Canal and the Chicago harbor, for the very things which were said to be the object of their gathering. The existence of all we see about ; *us is no miracle, and what we have here before us is not a work of the imagination. The Gov ernment in the year 1828 first recognized the fact that such a work as has during the course of years been accomplished would in coming years be a necessity, and so early made an appropriation for the purpose of improving the faculties of navigation in this re gion. There is another thing. There was a strong conviction in the minds of the early settlers here, and in those of the early legisla tors, that greatness must attend this locality, and Judge Nathaniel Pope, after several unsuc cessful attempts, urged upon Congress that the north line of the State of Illinois must be where it now is, instead of at the lower end of Lake Michigan. Let them laugh if they will at the South. Chicago harbor. 1 tell you I expect to live to see the Chicago River united to the har bor of South Chicago by a ship canal from the Calumet * River to the Illinois £ Michigan Ca nal. It is but a short time sicca the Chicago harbor was a far more uninviting place than this harbor is to-day, and I tell yon that during the past year the duties upon the merchandise im ported into the Chicago harbor amounted to more two millions of dollars. During the past season there were nine regular steam ers which plied between this port and Montreal, Canada, and during the present season there will be eleven more, making twenty in all, carry ing heavy cargoes. This _is only one of the many developments of Chisago, and, although -some of you have not-been here so long as I have, yon do not need to be told of these things, and the grand expectations we have for all Chi cago. [Applause.] COL. HOUSTON’S BEPOBT, Col. Houston, United States Engineer, was called npon to speak, but he had deputed Sen* ator B. S. Thompson to read his ideaa, which hp ,_|j 11lIIJI l " l 'T' NUMBER 293. had conveyed in a letter tc Mayor Cadv, of Hyde Park. The letter was read, aa follows: Eon. C. M. Cady, Mayor of Hyde Park; Dear 8m: In view of the proposed opening of the harbor at Sooth Chicago, I hare thought it proper to make to yon a brief statement of the history of the Government work at that point. The ’im provement of the month of the Calumet at South Chicago by the Government was com menced in August, 1870. At that time the mouth of the river was entirely closed up, the river being separated from the lake by a sand spit about 709 feet wide. The improvement consisted in catting a channel from the river to the lake, and the construc tion of piers to prevent the channel from filling up by the action of storms and currents in the lake. The only cause tending to All up the channel is this lake ac tion, and this con only be counteracted by protection piers, which extend out to the deep water of the lake where the bottom is but slightly affected .by the waves. In 1870 Congress appropriated $50,000 for this Improvement; in 1871, $50,000: in 1872, $40,000, and in 1873, $40,000, making In all SIBO,OOO. The original estimate was $300,000. There has been expended up to date about $130,000, leaving about $50,000 to bo expended the present season. Two thou sand feet of pier have been built on the north side, and 1,000 on the south side of the channel. The chan nel is 300 feet wide between the piers, and is now eleven (11) feet deep on the north side. It is proposed this sea son to deepen the channel and extend the piers ta far as the means will permit. The expenditure of the whole amount estimated will make this harbor equal to any on the lake. This improvement opens the Calumet River—and the lakes and streams connecting with it— to vessels navigating Lake Michigan, so that, at com paratively moderate expense, miles of water front can be improved and made available to meet the growing demands of commerce and manufacturing establishments in the vi cinity of the City of Chicago. It will also provide a harbor of refuge for vessels which may be driven south of Chicago Harbor, and might otherwise be driven ashore. The success of thin work is due. in a great measure, to the faculties extended by the Calumet & Chicago Canal and Dock Company, who own the ad jacent property, and are engaged in its development. Respectfully yours, D. C. Housrox, Major of Engineers, Brevet CoL D. S. A. MB. C. H. CADY, Mayor of Hyde Park, said the opening of a har bor like that was of vast importance, and in the name of Hyde Park bo welcomed all there who indorsed the action of the Government in aiding and hastening the work. The value, as a harbor 'of refuge, of Calumet was more to Chicago than its total estimated cost. Nature had nude that for a manufacturing centre, and they were thero to solemnize a marriage between commerce and manufactures. The remainder of the Mayor’s speech was brilliant with metaphors, reference being made to Bomulns, ancient. Borne, and other once popular persons and places. GOV. BETEMDQE said that through the kindness of their es teemed friend and enterprising fellow-citizen, CoL James H. Bowen, they were present to in augorate that harbor. It was a new thing for persona to lay the foundations of a har bor, but while they lived, and forever after. Lake Michigan would sound tho praises of that day. [Applause.] Three years ago Congress made the first appropriation to Improve tho har bor, and at an expense of only $130,000, the Government had cut through a sand-bank 200 feet wide and XI feet deop. opening a way for the Calumet Biver to the lake. Thirty-one years ago he had landed in Chicago, and he had since seen wonderful events, but ho ex pected to see even more wonderful things in the next thirty-ono years. He expected to see, in the next thirty years, a town at Calumet as large as the present Chicago. [Applause.] From Evanston, his own town, to Calumet, he expected to see a population of 1,000,000 souls, and the harbor before them connected with Chicago by a ship canal. He ex pected to see St. Louis steamboat e floating in that South Chicago harbor likewise, steamboats from St. Paul and other points. He believed the whole people of Illinois wore in favor of that system of interna! improvements. [Applause.] XX-OOV. BAUKDEE3, of Nebraska, was delighted with all ho bod seen in Chicago. They might regard him as a border, ruffian [Taughter[, because be bad lived ou tho border all bis life, but he was delighted with' Chicago. He had been to the ball the night before, and was satisfied from that and what be caw elsewhere that Chicago was a well-regulated family.. ..Bat, it was not Chicagoans who-made “TUmdis, bat God Al niigfaty, who madti 6- tiie lake and the country which supplied Chicago with prosperity. Ho was from Nebraska, and that was port of tho Northwest, which was proud of Chicago. GOV. AUSTIN, of Minnesota, referred gently to divorces, and expressed his fear of the facility with which those matrimonial releases were granted in tho city. The audience saw the joke, and laughed. Bo told a nice little Minnesota story, which amused everybody. He couldn't see any town round there, but bad no doubt it would come m due time. Greatness was tho destiny of Chicago. It was simply inevitable, when God Almighty scattered from his bands the waters that made up these lakes and fashioned the ways of com merce, he meant business. [Loud laughter.] SZSATOB OGLESBY remarked that they were there to dedicate that rising town to manufactures, and that harbor to commerce. It was due in a largo measure to the generous aid given by Government. Tho spot was insignificant, but the Government looked everywhere to do good, and the gener ous arm of the nation, uphold by the confidence of intelligent voters, un locked that harbor to the civilization of the world. Twenty years benco they would bo asking themselves why they bad not invested in land now, when they could get it for $2,000 an acre, and which would then bo worth SIOO,OUG an acre: In 1868, Chauncey Bowen implored him to buy SO acres of land in that vicinity at SSOO an acre, and he wouldn’t do it. Thai laud was now worth $300,000 in gold. They should go in and invest. A lady said the stream was too narrow to bo navigated by a Kansas mosquito, but it was as wide as Chicago River thirty-five years ago. They bad better invest. He would not ha fooled a second time. [Laughter.) Hundreds of thousands of people would rejoice in tho en ergy of the capitalists who developed that ob scure and uninviting region. Lot them nave commerce and manufactures like old mother England and New England, whoso hilla were full of music famished by the sound of the anvil and tho loom. Illinois would be her competitor, and the competitor of Mother England. God had given them a soil that would not wear out in a thousand years, and what God bad not given them they made up in that strange article, Illinois and Chicago impudence. [Loud laughter.] They surpassed the world in that as in everything else. Look at Chicago. How many of them remembered the year of the great conflagration, its mins now effaced by the energy of tho peo ple. The country was looking at Chicago and the intelligent farmers of Illinois were watching them. The political creed to-day was to buy as cheap and sell as dear as theycoulo. Nomerchantd understood that better than Chicago mer chants. He would rather enter into competition with Satan himself than with a keen Chicago merchant or banker. After apostrophizing the banner of the country and the Union, the Sen ate retired amid hearty applause. COZm JAMES H. BOWES said lie could take one of the steamers twelve miles np that river. As was said, God had given them great advantages to be need, and ka had tried to utilize them for the benefit of the human family. He thanked them for being there, and hoped they would como again voiy often. [Applause]. Senator Logan was called for, but the trams were preparing to go, and the Senator’s eloquent remarks will have to bo delivered on a more op portune occasion. THE BETUBH. The trains moved off, and the boats did the same, amid the farewells of the Calnmettans on the bank. The return trip was swi:l and pleasant. Nothing happened tc make wives widows or children fatherless. There was a fine opportunity, however, The engineer of one boat bet a hat with the Cap tain of another that be wonld beat him fifteen minutes to Chicago. It was quite exciting. That hat was to be lost and won. It did no) make the slightest difference that 400 persons might be incontinently sent to Davy Jones’ locker, that 400 widows might monm their lot.:, and 1,200 children cry for them, so , long as that hat was saved. It was - pro posed to pnt Commissioner Miller ' and the Hon. John M. Bonntrce on the safety-valve of one of the boats, “ to keep her month shot,” as the Captain said. It was nip and and neck, “snout and snont,” jibboom and jlb hoom, but at last she won. Which ? It makoi not the slightest difference. ■ THAT CAEKIAOE. ■ . q The boats arrived at the dock in safety, opd c’l eyez were strained to catch a glimpse of that or.. - nege, but it was not there. Mr. A. C. llesirg came to the boat in it, but no one saw him go away in it.
