2 POSTAL DIFFICULTIES. An Instructive Scene at Hie Post- Office Yesterday—Difficulty • About Advertised Letters. Some Truths that Thousands of the Citizens Will Recognize at Pirst Sight, Tlio Unreasonableness of One Owon Jenkins, and the Intelligent Con duct of the Gentlemanly Clerks. When tboro is nobody treading on bis corns,. or heaving rooks at him, or sitting on bis new plug bat, there Is not a more patient, lovable bachelor in Chicago than Mr. Owon Jenkins. Ho came tearing Into Tub Tribune office, yes terday morning, In a boiling, tempestuous, over bearing stylo that showed bis feelings bad boon luiurod In tbo matter of corns, rocks, and new plug bat all at ouco. It appears that Mr, Jonkins bad boon sitting along, at homo, smoking, and reading tbo J&cn ing JPost, when’ ho perceived the letter-list. Now, tho letter-list is an utter abomination in his eyes, as the little boy said when bis grand mother xuado him swallow a powder in a tea spoonful of treacle ; and when Jenkins sees It, bo Just throws the paper down and makes cigar lights of It. But on this occasion bis oyo no sooner struck tho attenuated columns than bis own name seemed to spring opt of It and rivet bis uncertain • gaze. Of all sublunary marvels, there is none to boat that of a letter lying at the postroffico for Jenkins, who is an exemplary young mau of model habile, who has boon In one employ since tbo world began, more or less, and would no sooner think of connecting himself with tbo roving correspondents who are not in full possession of bis number and street than of organising a trip to tbo moon. .But there It was: “Owon Jenkins;” neither more nor loss. When bo wont to bod ho laid on tho pillow a bond aching with rccolloctiono of all tho persons who had written him in tbo'course of bis life, and when sloop visited bis eyelids bis brains formed cabalistic characters of tho letters Owon Jo uk i n's to that oxtout that when bo arose in tbo morning for liis usual spongo bath bo was feverish, unrofresh od, and bad-tomporod. A pleasant sousing in tbo cold water, a brisk performance on tho cranium with a pair of brushes, and a tempting break fast, restored Sir. Jenkins’ ordinary placidity, and when ho presented himself to tbo dork at tho delivery box in tbo Post Office, bo foil at pcaco with mankind. “Is this tbo place they got advertised lottoro at ?” bo mildly inquired of tho olork. “Yob,” tho latter curtly ropliod, regarding tho questioner with a look that as good as said, V And a precious fool you must bo not to know that.*’ “ I want one addressed Owon Jonkins. lam Owen Jonkins,” bo added, apologetically, as tho clerk looked at him in a manner that in a dork was dubious, but in a roan in the stroot would bavo been rewarded with a back-hander in tbo loco; and bo began hauling out loiters addressed to “Owen Jonkins,” to provo bis identity, a grnro doubt having arisen in his mind, from tho clerk’s manner, whether bo might not bo called upon to bring along several witnesses as to bis respectability, .or lilo bonds that bo wouldn’t do it novor no more, or something equally unusual and unpleasant. Tho dork begun looking over tho letters, and squinting out of a corner of his loft oyo at Jen kins. With ovory letter bo would give a squint, and ovory squint was a dagger. By and by bo stopped short with a loiter taken from tho heap, and evidently did a pile of swearing to himself before ho could mako up his mind to part with “ Whatsyornamo ?” ho asked, snappishly, like a terrier snarling over a bouo. “ Owen Jon-kms, bir,” said our friond, hum bly, hoping to propitiate tho great man. “This is from Priucovillo, Ohio. Got any friends in rrincovillo, Ohio. Eh ?” Now, Owen Jenkins is a Welshman. His parents at present live in England. Several mints and undos have moved to Scotland. Ho has one cousin in Mauritius, growing sugar; another in Hong Kong, shipping tea; another is a soldier in the British army, last hoard from in •a station on tho Himalayas; still another is a sailor, whoso last voyugo was from Melbourne, Australia, for a trading trip among tho Pacific islands. An undo was captain of a colliery in Pennsylvania, at last advices, and ono of that undo’s eons had left homo to como out West, farming. It must bo tbo latter. Ho hod got as far as Princovillo, Ohio, and whilst sojourning there, making inquiries, had written a noto to his cousin, our friend and gossip Jenkins, ad dressing it to the Post-Office in ignorance or bis placo of abode, which Lis father had probably neglected to supply. But not having any just grounds for expecting a letter from his cousin, aud being a punctilious young man, with no guile in his soul, Jenkins answered briskly: “Well, sir, I have no reason to oxpoot any let ter from any ono living in PriucoTille, Ohio, but it may bo from a relative who is traveling. I can not sny. 1 don’t want to open another man’s letter. What is tho usual rulo?" The terrier retired to his cab. growling, with the bone in his mouth: that is to say, the clerk turned his back, with the letter in his hand, and in wont the letter into the little box. “ What's to ho done, sir, please'?" abjectly asked Jenkins of the other, who now gazed stoically at nothing. The other said ho guessed there wore a good many Owen Jenkinses in the world, but they hadn't all come around for that letter yet. It would have to bo given up to the Owen Jenkins who took it upon himself to say ho expected a letter from Priucovillo, 0. “ Well, but suppose I bad said that I expected it; you wouldn’t have known any better, would you ? I simply told you that I bad no reason to expect it, but, from the number of my friends in nil parts of the world, I might have one from Jcncho, to-morrow, and 1 shouldn’t be a bit surprised," nns\vorou Jenkins. The enlightened and appreciative clerk only know that ho shouldn’t give up the letter until the right Owen Jenkins turned up. “But, good gracious, man," said Jenkins, for all I know, or you know, I am the right man. You must prove that lam not, I suppose. You must have some way of settling this. I cannot, surely, have been the llrst wan to whom this difficulty has occurred. I have lost good part of the forouoon coming so far. as this for that letter. You have a letter in your posses sion addressed to Owen Jenkins. lam Owen Jenkins. Give it mo." The dork smiled in a sickly manner, as though ho was about to enrao and mvoar and foam, and soraobody bad suddenly stuck his linger down his throat to prevent him. After a little, ho said ho guessed Jenkins might wait there all day, and catch cold in the head boforo ho got the let ter. Ho could apply to the Postmaster, if ho liked, of oourso. Jerking out that ho might have said eo sooner, Jenkins, now rather demoralized, hastened to tbo Postmaster’s room. Mr. Hibbard, an estimable gentleman, known to Jenkins, happened to ho standing there. . “ For God’s sake, Hibbard, help mo,” said tho unfortunate Jenkins. ** There’s alottor for me, hero, and I can’t got itat least I oxpoot—no, I don’t expect, hut it may bo—although I have no reason to suppose. Well, for all I know, its for mo. Its in my name ; and, although I don’t want to read any other man’s letter, X don’t wont any other man to road mine, and you don’t know what a trouble I’ve had, and I hope you’ll tell tho man X am a respectable citizen, known to you, and thou he'll give it up. Oh, my lord, if X only had you out m a back alloy for ton seconds, wouldn’t I spoil your boauty (tho.last in strict conlldonco to himself) 1 . , Mr. Hibbard wont with Jenkins to tho cleric, who was now consulting with n dried-up little follow who looked as protomaturally wise as an owl, oud vouched for tho respectability of Jcn • kins; and, after some palaver, the terrier one with tho sanction of tho owl, handed over tho letter, saying thoro was a cent to pay. While Joukimi was pulling out the cent, not being a smart man. but ono accustomed to say just what ho mount; ho told tho dork that ho supposed ho would return tho cent if the letter didn’t belong to him. Tho dorks, both terrier and owl, looked no tremendous at this, and (ho letter was so swiftly homo away, that poor Jenkins stood hovering with the cent la tho act of being tendered, un certain what to do or say. Even Hibbard was horrified at something or other, and, coldly saying, "I have douo all loan for you, Jenkins,” sadly turned away. All this is told half In fun, half in earnest. It la exactly true aa regards,lho taels, hAwovor, Iti servos to show tho Jnconvbiiiont and funny eidos< of our present' system.'" Tho end of It all was* that Jenkins wont to tho roatmastor's deputy, who returned with tho letter in a Jiffy, thus ", allowing tboro was no real difficulty, and, simply.; tolling Jenkins ho would bo bold roaponalblo, if tho letter wan not bis,—ho did not any rooponsl blo for what—allowed It to bo opened. It was a card announcing tho death of a Mrs. Ultcboock, and wan not for Owen Jenkins, who endorsed it asoponod by him, and mado straight way for The Tribune office to toll tho above talo of his Bufferings. All of which goes to provo that a man bettor toll a 110 and gel hla letter, than 101 l tho truth and shame bla bringings up. THE HYERS-MACK LIQUOR CASES Judge Tree Decides tho First Feint In the • First Liquor Case Under tho Now Liquor Law. The Statute Respecting* the Liability * of Saloon-Keepers for tho Loath of a Husband Defined. His Honor Judge Troo rendered bis decision, yesterday, which wo summarize, in tbo caso of Lizzie Myors v. Frederick Mack and Goorgo P. Bay. His Honor said this was an action brought by plaintiff to recover SIO,OOO for tbo loss of hor husband through intoxication caused by tbo drinking of iquors purchased from Fred erick Mack, ‘a saloon-keeper; Goorgo P. Bay being also sued as tbo lessor of tbo saloon Mack occupied. After reviewing tho facto of tbo oaso, which possesses au lunatelnterest from its boing tho first of its nature under tho now Liquor law, tho Court stated that tho defendants have lutor- Sosod a demurrer to tho several counts of tiio oolaralion, and tho questions raised involve an interpretation of tho fifth section of tho not un der which tho suit is brought. Soo. 5 provides that— Every hoahand, wife, child, parent, guardian, em ployer, or other person, who shall ho Injured In per son or property, or means of support by any intoxi cated person, or in consequence of tho intoxication, habitual or olhcrwleo, of any portion, shall have a right of notion in his or hor own name, severally or jointly, against any person or persons who shall, by soiling or giving intoxicating liquors, have caused the intoxica tion In whole or in part of such person or persons; and any person or persons owning, renting, leasing, or permitting tho occupation of any building or premises, Old having knowledge that intoxicating liquors aro to be sold therein, or wno, having leased tho same for other purposes, shall knowingly permit therein tbo sale of any intoxicating liquors that have caused in wholo or in part, tho intoxication of any person, shall bo lia ble, severally or Jointly, with the person or persona selling or giving intoxicating liquors aforesaid, for all damages sustained, and for exemplary damages. After referring to tho highly punitory charac ter of tho whole act, and tho obscuronoss which in observable in the language used 'in the sec tion under consideration, which was explained by tbo supposing of cortaiu oases, the Court said: That absolute prohibition wna not (bo intention of tho LcgiKluturo, I think is evident from othor sections of tho act, and especially tho first one, which author izes tho calo of liquor, provided a llccuoo is obtained. Heuco I think, so far as tbo vendor Is concerned, tho declaration should aver either that tho liquor was sold to one of tbo several classes of persons mentioned iu tho second section to whom its sale Is declared to bo unlawful, or that it waa Bold with tho intention, knowledge, or expectation, that it would cause tho intoxication, In whole or hi part, of the person or per sons whoso intoxication resulted lu an Injury to tho plaintiff. With regard to the liability of the owner of the promises, the Court said that, if liable at all, ho is so. not* only for all actual damages sus tained, but also, in tbo language of the statute, for exemplary damages, namely, those allowed for torts committed with fraud, actual mallco, or deliberate violence or oppression, and are given, not only as a compensation to the sufferer, but also by way of punishment for a wilful wrong of thojoffoudor; that the traffic in liquor is lawful under the statute itself, provided the party has the required license: therefore tbo owner of tho building who Dimply leases his promises oh a placo wherein liquor may bo sold, rents it for a lawful purpose, aud it would hardly seem to bo . a reasonable construction of tho statute that ho should bo liablo for exemplary damages, by reason of tho intoxication of a person, caused on tho promises, unless the circumstances show that such intoxi cation was caused with his knowledge or by his' procurement or acsistanco. Tbo Court did not think that it appeared that tho promises in question wore routed for tho purpose of selling liquor. The Court cited nu imaginary caao of a landlord leasing promises generally without re strictions as to use, where tho tenant opens a saloon wherein a person becomes intoxicated and commits an injury for which tho injured party brings suit against tho landlord ana ob tains exemplary damages, it being but of tbo landlord’s power all tbo wldlo to stay tho liquor traffic, it being legalized. To say that tho land lord was liable under such a etato of facte would bo to m&ko a snare of the net. Under such a construction the owner might bo deprived of his property, and wholly ruined by a verdict aud judgment for heavy damages for an act which ho was utterly . powerless to prevent. The Court did not think that it was a sufficient allegation that the owner permitted the occu pation of tho promises for a saloon, wherein bo Know,, intoxicating liquors woro sold. Tho Court concluded by saying that it is tho intention of tho statute that it shall also appear that ho knowingly per mitted tho salo of liquor to ono of the prohibited classes mentioned in tho second sec tion, or that ho knowingly permitted liquor to bo sold to tbo person whore intoxication was caused in tho manner necessary to charge tho saloon keeper ; because in order to have nu opportunity to prohibit an unlawful salo. tbo landlord must have knowledge that ono is to bo made, and un til ono is mado ho cannot terminate the lease, which is tho protection furnished to him by tho statute against liability. In other words tbo statute widely authorizes him to forfeit tho loaso Incase of an unlawful sale, is no protection'to him, if his liability is fixed without any notice to him, or opportunity to assent to, or prohibit, tbo intended solo. Inasmuch as tbo declaration is defective In the particulars specified, the demurrer must bo sus tained. DEATH’S DOINGS. Dr. Rauch Figures out 149 Deaths During the Last Seven Days, and 000 During the iTioutU of lUuy. A rogulor weekly mooting of the Board of Health Commissioners was hold yesterday after noon, Dr. Johnson in the Chair. There woro also present the gentlemen usually in attendance on such occasions. Dr. Bauch submitted his usual weekly mortal ity report, of which the following is au abstract: The total number of deaths for the week ending Juno 7 was 149, showing an increase of throe as compared with the week preceding. There wore B8 males aud G1 females. Middle aged decedents wore iu excess, while there was a groat increase of those hom in foreign countries. The moan daily temperature was 7>£ degrees higher than during tbo previous week, aud 10 degrees higher than during the corresponding week last year, with an inch leas in rainfall. Decided progress has boon made during the week in the improvement of tho sanitary condi tion of the city, though much more remains to be done. 'The increase in tho number of deaths by small-pox is marked, being greater than for any week m tho throe months, the number being 10, compared with Id for tho same week lust year. Tbo report concludes thus i During tho past week I havo caftfully examined tho ditch communicating with tho Delaines Ullvor and tho West branch of tho Chicago llivor, and hnd that but littlo water outers tho canal from that source. Upon two examinations I made, none at all camo from that direction. With tho pre cautions taken, and tho diminution of tho amount of water In tho Desplalnca lUvcr, I apprehend but little trouble from that direction. Tho lako Is two feet above low water murk, or nearly half a foot higher than at any time lant year. It has been steadily riding during the past-three mouths. Hence, tho general condition of the river will remain hater than It did last year. Tito report woo placed on fllo. Tho monthly report uhown that thoro wore GOO doatho during tho mouth of May, of which tho aatouinhing number of 80 woro from acoidontu, 52 from consumption, 50 from omull-pox, &1 from pneumonia, and 20 from meningitis. Of those, 800 woro males, 201 females, 177 married and 483 single, 17 colored and G-13 white, Xt therefore follows that tho cbuncos of death are small est to married colored women. Tho total shows an increase of 40 as compared with tho of tho preceding mouth. The daily average of deaths was 21X; tho moon thermometer, 54. Tho increase Is accounted for by acute pulmonary diseases, accident, and small-pox. There was also a more than ordinary prevalence of miasmatic diseases. During tho wook 784 notices havo boon served and 020 nuisances abated: for tbo month, 2.764 notices wore sorvod, uud 2.257 nuisances abated. During tbo past thirty days 831 loads of ashes and 1,830 loads of garbage havo been removed. Thoro Is a model of a patent garbngo-box in the Health Oihce, which is very ingenious. thjb Chicago daily fofiisuwEG n, isk THE EXPOSITION; Meeting of the Directors Yesterday Afternoon.

The Directors of the Intor-Stato Exposition mot yesterday afternoon at tbolr rooms In build ing No. 77 Washington street. Mr. Bouton reported that amingmonta bod boon made with Mr. Boyiugton to prepare plans for a building between Monroo and Jackson streets, 800 foot by 200, with an addition at tbo north ond. Bids have boon advertised for the erection, amounting to $198,823, of which tbo contractors would take $50,000 In stock, or would lot It run till tbo receipts from tbo Exposition began to come in. It was necessary, also, to raise money for sewerage, plumbing, gas-fitting, etc., for which no bids bad boon received. Tbo Executive Committee wore authorized to proceed to lot tho contract for tho erection of the building in accordance with Mr, Doyington’s plans. * It was reported that tboro would bo no trouble about putting up the building if the inoiiQy was properly secured. 1 A committee wblob had writ ten to tho Board of Public Works In regard to tbo matinor of orocting tbo building, received a reply that, boforo taking any responsibility ns to tho erection of tho building, tbo money should bo deposited with tho city or properly secured. Mr. Fairbank moved that tho capital stock bo incroascd to $250,000, tho Fiuauco Committee to find subscribers, which was agreed to, and tho Secretary was, on motion of Mr. Hosing, ordered to take the necessary stops to comply with tho Btato law as to tho manner of such inaronso. Mr. Green was relieved from a subscription of $20,000. Mr. Hosing asked if tho Executive Committee meant to complete the building this fall. Tho public opinion seemed to bo that it would bo a failure if hold this year. Tho building could not, ho believed. bo finished boforo tho middle of October. Tlio contracts wore not lot. and tbo money not raised. It had generally taken other cities two years to got up an exposition. Chicago had dono groat things, but still bo hollered au exposition this year would bo. a failure. It would tuko a committco from now till noxt September to mnko it a success. There bad boon a great crowd hero last week, and could not bo obtained again. If postponed, ho was willing to double or treble bis subscription. v. Mr. Bouton said tho specifications wore all ready, and tho building oould bo put up by Sept, 1, or tlio contractors would undergo a heavy forfeit. Tho walls of tho building would bo put up iu’four weeks. Mr. Field thought many would subscribe more if It wore noxt year. Mr. Gage thought they should go ahead if they could raise tho money. Sir. Hosing asked if circulars bad boon sent throughout mo country inviting citizens, oto., to exhibit. Tho Secretary stated tho general correspond ence had showed they would have the best ex position over hold iu tho country if It camo off this fall. It would ho a fine exposition oven if confined to Chicago. Mr. D. A. Gage, to got tho matter settled, moved tho Exposition bo postponed till next year. Tho motion was lost. Tho meeting adjourned.

Vol. I. of John Bright’s “Speeches on Ques tions of Public Policy,” " Among tbo rarest and most valuable collections of books received from England aro tbo “ Calendar of State Pa pers "and tbo “ Chronicles and Memorials ” of tbo earliest transactions on record relating to Groat Britain, contained In 212 octavo volumes, published from tbo original manuscripts under tbo direction of tbo Master of tbo Bolls, and through him presented to tho library. “Early years of tbo Prince Consort,” is a proaout from Hor Majesty, Queen Victoria, con taining bor autograph signature. Tho total cost of binding tbo patent office re ports presented by Groat Britain will bo about $7,000 in gold. Among tbo first homo donations was one from tbo Chicago Law Institute,, consisting of sovonty-throo volumes and atlases of' French works, to which wore subsequently added fifty four volumes and a fow pamphlets. Tbo books are entered in an accession cata logue In tho order of their receipt at tbo Library. This catalogue shows the title, author, or com- Eiior. editor, Imprint, size of volume, kind of indlng, mimbor of pages, by whom donated, or, If purchased, the price paid, as well as thod ate of accession 7>f ovory book upon tho shelves. Only those who can show sufficient reason for tbo privilege are allowed access to tbo shelves. Few ladies bavo boon in attendance at tbo roading-room, so fow that no separate statistics have boon preserved relative to tbolr use of tbo room. Two reasons will mainly account for this: Tbo location of tbo library is off tbo thorough faro and distaut from tbo stroot; and there is no reading-room for tbo oxoiuslvo uso of ladies. Of tbo publications taken by tbo library 52 per cent oro American, 17 per cent Gorman, 27 por cont English, 4 por cent other foreign publica tions. Viewed in another way 87 por cent are magazines and reviews, 52 por cont illustrated ana humorous, 8 por cent scientific, and S por cont aro upon art matters. It io not generally understood that tho reading room la open on Sunday at tbo same hours- ns during tbo week. For tbo benefit of tbouo who wish to pass Iboir Sunday evenings leisurely and profitably, it would bo well to announce that there is always a very nice,orderly gathering on Sunday as well as at other times.

L. De los Mauuflold, L. L, D., Priuoipal of tho Book land Female Institute, and four ladies. Tho rovoroud gentleman, followed by tho ladloa, en tered tho Hotel, and stationing himself in a con spiouos part of tho room introduced tho ladles as Mrs. Mansflold. Miss Pottuo, Mrs. Morrill, and Miss HondrioKsen, and proceeded to ad dress tho Inspectors, who, interrupting him, de sired to know what ho wantod. lie Thou said that tho ladios had aomo there to voto; that they did not ask that tholr-votes should bo count ed: and if they woro counted, they would not Influence tho election, as two would voto ouo ticket and two tho other. As they woro qulot and Inoffensive, one of tho Inspectors modestly presented a hat, into which they dropped their billots. Then marshalling his forces tho Bor. Mr. Mansflold withdrew, when tho hat was quiet ly Inverted over tho waste- bosket, to tho. groat amusement of all present.

THo Occasion Ono of Groat Enjoy ment to the Paoulty and Students. 1 Whnt Prof. Wheelor Sold lu Hlb Introductory Address. “Glass Day "Is an Important ono to each Bonior clans* On that occasion tho class has a day given up entirely to themselves, to ho cele brated as tlioy doom lit. Yesterday was such a day at tho Northwestern University, and tho Bonior class of that institution maintained col logo custom by observing it with appropriate and utoroating coromonioa. At 2 o’clock tho stu dents formed in procosalon at tho Preparatory Building, and marchod.to University Hall, In tho obapol' of which'.the exercises wore bold. Tho etago was ornamented with several faithful por traits of 1 members of tho olaos who Lad loft, Its ranks too Boon. . Excellent music was fur nished by tho Light Guard Band. Tho opening ooromony was tho introduction of tho class to President Fowler, a form which Prof. D. H. 'Wheeler went through in a neat and humorous manner. ‘ Tho history of this class, ho sold, was identified with important epochs in tho history of tho University. Since they entered tho Institution, Its Faculty has boon doubled, and Its resources nearly trebled; they have soon tho advent of tho Qroontoaf library, ond ’72’a manimotli elephant j they have soon Chicago de stroyed and rebuilt,- and the population of Evans ton doubled or trebled. They are tho first class having a lady pursuing tho regular course. Of tho forty-seven who began with them, those sixteen remain ns candidates for tho. honors of tho University. They have fought thoir way through. Measured by this world’u goods alone,- tho poorest members of tho class aro hero to day. Tho rich boys of tho class aro absent. This proves two things: First, that any boy can obtain a college education who chooses to do' so? second, that it is not impossible lor a pool* boy to got through tho Northwestern University, as some have assorted. Every year wo graduate more poor than rich boys. A look at tho class refutes tho fallacy that it Hills young men. to go through college. I venture to assort that every ono weighs more than when ho*ontorod tho class. They deserve special commendation -for tho thorough work .performed in the senior year. President Fowler responded briefly, address ing tho class os “venerable men," stating his •familiarity with thoir ability, and closing with a few words of good advice, Tho class history, rend by Henry Green, of Elizabeth, 111., was a well-written production, especially commendable for its truthfulness and liberality. Ho related tho noteworthy events in tho class history in a pleasing manner, and furnished- some interesting statistics. The class of 1878 began with fqrty-throo members. Four have joined lower classes? throo aro in other colleges; eight aro in tho ministry? two aro in law ;• ono is In jonmalism ? two are farm ers \ ono in insurance; two in medicine; two are engineers ? one is a photographer: three are in mercantile business? two aro traveling, and throe have boon lost sight of. Those-who-re main have chosen thoir future occupations as follows: Ministry, 2? law, 6? journalism, 8; medicine, 1 ?‘ civil engineer, 1 ? teaching, 1? real estate, 1. Thoir average ago is 24 years and seven months, ond average weight is pounds. Tho average height is 5 feet 9 inches, • ranging from a mou of 0 foot and half an inch, down to’a pigmy of 0 foot G inches. Fred. M. llustod, of Galvo, 111., revealed tho future of each member of tho class to tho startled eyes of tho audience, in a manner both eloquent and witty. An oration upon tho subject “Honor” fol lowed, being 'delivered by Henry A. Cooper, of Burlington,.Wis, Mr. Cooper was received with applause, and loudly applauded when ho closed. Ho favored tho audience with a finished disser tation upon honor, which sparkled with happy allusions, gems of wit, and abounded in well turned periods. * E. 0. Arnold, of. Oak Park, 111., read tho class poem, which reflected credit upon him as an amateur writer of verso. Mr. Arnold, by his success, did much towards confirming that sous*-* loss custom that requires a “ poem at all liter ary exorcises, whether tho performers write verso easily,or grind it out. Ohauncoy Games, of Victoria, transferred tho University life-boat to. tho junior class with many tolling anecdotes of what had. befallen those who used it upon tho raging billows. It was received by G. M. Simmons, of Kenosha, on bohoif of his class. That portion of tho programme called “Eo warding Class Merit,” was highly appreciated. It consisted of presentations to different mem* hors of tho class of. articles in token of qualities opposite to thoao they really possessed. The following gifts wore bestowed upon the persona named for tho reasons slated, humorous ad dresses accompanying tho donations: E. L. Parks, a woo-bogono arm-chair, for his laziness; W. J. Minium, a mauy-bladcd knifo. for his en ergy; H. A. Cooper, a razor to curtail his bushy board; P. M. Busted, a Testament, for faithful, attendance on religious services; 11. Qroon, an elongated tin telescope, and a sheepskin con ferring tho now degree, '‘Astronomer Royal,” for his zeal in astronomical studios; L. Pit nor, a sot of toilet articles, as the slovenliest man. ...... Mr. L. Butterfield, President of tho class, then deposited with Prof. Marcy an elegant silver cup, destined for tho llrut boy born to tho clujh, with tho admonition, “ Delays are dangerous." Tho singing of tho class song closed tho ox ’orclaos, which wore of a thoroughly enjoyable nature, tojudgoby the many signs of apprecia tion displayed by tho largo audience. In tho evening tho class assembled in the so ciety balls of tho University, to partake of tho banquet prepared for their gustatory oxorolta tion, They wore accompanied by partners of tho fairer box, picked for tho - occasion, who added-- tov--their enjoyment ami tho artistic appearance of tho assembly. Tho literary exorcises consisted of a toast, “ Our Past.” responded to by J,. M. Dandy; reading,. “ Vako Up," A. 11. NoocIImm; piano nolo, IL A. Cooper; toast, “ Our Future," D. A.

Everybody Is ootnlngto Chicago from all tho neighboring country, ami then going homo again In the host of good nature, laughing at tho ex ceeding clovornoim of tho noli. I must not bo understood ns implying that, Laving advertised music, Chicago hint given us altogether Jargon, nor, having promised mi a grand ball, warranted to be an affair “ of the highest social position,” she has glvon us a genera! and Indiscriminate ” break-down.” Wo havo Indeed had music. But it Imii boon tho music of. lung'powor and muscle rallior than of tho soul and tho brain. Oihnaro’s Band alono>ould have provided a mu sical entertainment not to bo sneered at, or flip pantly. criticised; in foot, Judging it from tho standpoint of art and culture,-tho Jublloo would havo boon . a far greater success with tho band alone, and with tho ’ extemporized choral features of tho affair loft out altogether. But rating it according to noisiness and humbug, it would havo been batter to have’ loft out tho band and to havo “ gone It alouo,” with the cho rus and tho blacksmiths. It is the effort to com bine tho two that has resulted In a musical fail ure. I was intensely, amused during the per formance of last evening at tho frantic efforts of Butterfield, who is Qilmoro’s Adjutant, during tho performance of an overture, to keep his forces in lino, so to speak. It reminded mo vividly of tho first year of tho war, when tho loyal drill-sergeant could bo soon on all sides In a state of profuse perspiration and profanity, wrestling with tho patriotic but awkward volunteer. Thoeo who havo witnessed tho first effort of a raw regiment of volunteer cavalry, mounted on stoods fresh from tho plow and tho market-wagon, to march in column of squadrons, con form a protty lively idea of tho wavering way m which some of the groat choral symphonies woro worried through yesterday and last night. Tho anvil chorus was a littlo tho funniest, of all. .. Every blacksmith Boomed to be going it oh his own nook, tho re sulting sound being similar to tho rattlo. of a handful o»‘ gravol-stonos thrown against a wln dow-pano. And all tho timo tho ‘‘musical direc tor” was boating tho air with his wand in an agony of wild despair, trying manfully, but vain ly, to restrain those who woro too previous, aud to whoop those up who lagged behind. Corr«;>omfcnco of the Cincinnati Gazette, From CO,OOO to 100,000 people havo gathered from far and near to witness one of tho empti est farces in a musical point of view, and at tho same time one of tho shrewdest strokes of man agerial ability, that has boon soon anywhere in tho country. Tho musical portion of the affair could not havo boon expected to rise much above a farce for two reasons: tho want of time, and tho leadership of P. B. Gilmore In dependent singers and church choirs have boon called together, and have hastily rehearsed a few easy selections. Tho result does groat credit to Mr. Butterfield, who had tho placo of chorus master, but it falls far below tho result at Cin cinnati. But tho Jubilee, although suffering mubli from want of time for preparation, suf fered . more from having Patrick Soraflold Gilmore as r its musical director, Mr. Gilmore would mako tho host loader of a circus-band in America,, and, if allow ed to manage tho grand ontroo into tho In land towns according to his own ideas, ho would create a greater furor than has over boon felt in tho rustic heart in this country. Ho is a musical Bamum, so to apeak; a groat' apostle of noise and show; a most successful-humbug. But os for true art, ho knows not of it So far as tho elevation of musical taste is con cerned, this Jubilee has boon a calamity to Chi cago equal in degree to her groat fire. It has destroyed, instead of creating or cultivating, musical taste. With tho single exception of tho Hallelujah chorus, there has boon nothing per formed in a manner to mako it pleasant, or oven dcolrnhlo to remember, It is pleasant to add that Chicago is not actively responsible for this. Shelias only endured it.'..’Mrs. O’Leary’s cow fired' Chicago against tho city’s will. The de struction Instigated by tho cow has boon, to a groat oxtont, obliterated by tho pooplo. So an O’Lcaryau fiend has laid waste tho rising musical structure of tho city. Tho pooplo of Chicago may bo expected soon to repair the waste. An immouso Exposition building is projected to bo built this summer. It will not bo surprising if nest J.uno shall call us all horo again to listen to a tine mueical festival under tho leadership of Theodora Thomas, in that now building. Tho Jubilee is nothing more than a shrewd piece of management to fill Chicago with visit ors,- put a handsome sum of money into a few pockets, and advertise a big hotel. The shrewd ness, lies in tho choice of a name, Jubilee ; in tho sedulous iteration of a purpose to celebrate tho rebuilding of Chicago, and in carefully hoop ing in tho background tho now hotel Having a great hotel to advertise, tho proprie tors simply took advantage of tho fact that Chi cago was rebuilt, to call a celebration. Chicago did not call it, nor did any considerable number of hor ci tlzcus. For obvious reasons no ono dis couraged tbo schomo. Every citizen would bo glad to havo 50,000 visitors in Chicago everyday. Tho newspapers, though possessed of tho fullest knowledge of tho weakness of tho affair, woro wisely silent, except In giving notice that they woro not looking for any great thing in tho way of classical music. Thoy conscientiously printed tbo most oyo-catching advertisements, and gave 'duo publicity to such details of tho enterprise as camo within tho province of nows. Tho result is a groat aud jovial assemblage of sight-seers in Chicago from a radius of 150 miles, to listen to throo of tho dreariest performances that over boro tho uamo of concerts. But this is not all: tho tradesmen and hotels of Chicago reaped a legitimate harvest, while the hotel is advertised ,at tho public oxppnso, leaving in tho hands of *tho advertisers a sura sufficient to cnablo them to rotiro from active business until tbo whole of Chicago is rebuilt. Mr. Gilmoro, in making up his programmes, found his roportolro exhausted whoa two con certs woro provided for, aud in those two thoro woro two.repetitious. So tho pnblio schools wore culled upon to supply tho dollcionoy. They responded generously. Thoy- had four rohear , sals J without accompaniment, and then wore compelled to sing to a mob! In behalf of tho children, whoso fresh voices deserve bettor au-. diouco. and of thou* thoroughly competent ajid patient instructors, wo protest that such treat ment is little loss than barbarous. . .. . . Tbo ball was tho most glaring fiasco of tbo whole Jubilee, aud yet it was exactly in accord ance with tho policy of its management. That pottcy was thaftho success of tho ball depended ou keeping tho people away, , Tho moot rigid moans were used to manage tho ball on that lino. Tickets admitting a lady and gentleman woro placed at @10; but' thoy woro not offered for salo.' A gentleman wishing to go to tho ball could not do so by buying a ticket alone. Ho could not buy till ho had received an ologantly-. ongravod invitation from sorno member of tho, Committoo on Invitation. If bo did not enjoy tho honor of'tho acquaintance, of that distin guished Committee, or was unable to find ono of them at homo if ho happened to know one, his filthy lucro -to tho extent of thousands was powerless to give him admission. Thoro was so much exclusiveness, bo much rod tape, and so much tomfoolery that tho bettor class of citizens bocamo disgusted and refused to crawl before tho mighty managers hogging for tho .favor of paying $lO. Tho groat hull of tho Board of Trade was thinly peopled by not raoro than 250 ladies and gentlemen, aud that number rapidly diminished after it bocamo apparent that ‘the ball was a failure. .... After nil. tho maiu point of attraction to roost of tbo-visitora was rebuilt Chicago. ■ They had not booh tho city since her desolation; they came now to qoo hor restored. No oxtrnvag&nco of language Is too groat to übo in opoaldng of tho marvel of the rebuilding of Chicago. It is littlo loss than a miracle.

They labored under tho disadvantage of Insunioteht rehearsal, added to tho disheartening effects of singing in a hall dontituto of acoustic aids. and. to ono of tho noisiest and most Inat tentive of audiences. The multitude who could not obtain seats walked about, laughing and talking Incessantly. In tho selection of popular muslo the “Anvil Chorus" was not overlooked. No Jubilee would bo complete without an anvil chorus, of course not. A company of very ’ young men in blue pants and white sulrts, with arms about as muscular as billiard cues, represented sturdy blacksmiths, and drummed the anvils. They made a decided hit, except when they occasionally mluaod tho anvil and carroraod on each other’s shins. Tho “ Now Chicago Hylnu of Praise,” composed by Bartley Campbell, was sung to tho tune of Old Hundred, it said something about tho baptism of ilro. and contained an allusion to tho Phamhc.

Thoro was only cue feature in tho Jubilee business to atone for its shrtcomings in an artistic sense, and that was, and is, tbo woudroua beauty of tho rebuilt city. From the Indianapolis ( Tnd .) Journal. A correspondent does up the Chicago Juhlloo ,ju the following hint to business men generally: There was really no reason to expect that the concert would bo anything more than it has "turned out. All that Chicago did was to adver tise that she was going to jubilate, and then she rested in her sublime faith that all things aro 1 possible to him that advertises.” 'JVom the Burlington (la.) * Although the people of Chicago, in persuading so many thousands to oomo to this city to havo a grand musical feast, have laid themselves lia ble to action for obtaining monoy under false pretenses, yet fow will bavo reason to regret tho time and money spent in attending tho groat Ju bilee.
