Northeast corner of Sixth and Aroh-sts.. Philadelphia. Wht tebam Wednesday Morning,. Juno 18, 1873, Nows has justihoen'received of an earthquake which visited Valparaiso on tho 16th instant. Several people were killed, a largo, number wounded, aud many buildings seriously injured. • There wore thirty-five deaths yesterday In Nashville from cholera, which is getting worse In that city, and is carrying. Us. ravages into : tho neighboring towns of Tennessee. A few I ,cases uo reported in Cincinnati! Throe negroes of Now Iberia, La., who mur dered two whito men about a week ago, wore captured yesterday through tho State’s evidence of an accomplice. They wore thou taken from the officers of justice by a mob-of over 1,000 ffhiio citizens and hanged forthwith. The Boston Fire Department showed itself so inefficient in tho fire a few weeks ago, that tho insurance companies of Now York have begun to dob&to whether thoy had not hotter refuse to tako any znoro risks in that combustible and de fenseless city. The Rallroa d aud Warehouse Commissioners are in town, and are in consultation with tho grain men of the city as to the changes to bo made in tho grading of grain and the ap pointment of an Inspection Committee, accord ing to tho new law which .goes into effect on July 1. ' ■ With regard to Col. Mackenzie's raid into Mexico while in pursuit of ,the Kickapoos, Gen, Sheridan, in forwarding that officer's report of tho affair to the War Department, says ho does cot believe that any boundary exists when snch merciless banditti are being pursued. Both tho United States and Mexico should bo glad to throw opon their territory to each other’s troops for the punishment of those savages. - It is said to bo a common practice in Washing ton to favor tho Congressmen who own property there, in tho lovy of taxes and special assessments, in order to silence criticism on tho reckless ex travagance of the Washington municipal ring, [t is now stated that the Senators and members who keep house in Washington aro, not charged anything for gas. If this is true, the people of Washington treat Congressmen a groat deal bet ter than Congressmen.treat the people. Gov. MoEnory’s suggestion to tho people of Louisiana, that, while abandoning forcible re sistance to Federal usurpation, they should; strengthen the prosperity of their Common-’ wealth by endeavoring to obliterate all traces of bod feeling boon whites and blacks, has al- ; ready borne good fruit. A. mooting of & mixed, committee was hold in Now Orleans yesterday, which adopted a strong series of resolutions ap proving this timely suggestion, and pledging their efforts to tho preservation of tho recipro cal rights of tho two races, and tho maintenance of peace and good will between them. Tho right of the Mayor to revoke the licenses of saloou-koopors who violate tho Sunday law was affirmed by Judgo Rogers yesterday, in' ins decision in tho case of Schwucbow. Scbwuohow kept his saloon open on Sun day, in defiance of ‘ city ordinances, and was punished by tho withdrawal of his license by tho Mayor. Judgo Rogers declines. to consider tho Sunday question from a religious, moral, or any other than a legal point of view. ‘ 110 reasons simply that tho charter and its amendments confer on tho Common Council tho right to authorize tho Mayor to rovoko licenses for such causes as Scbwuohow had given. Pope Plus IX. Booms to have mado a mistake in placing tbo cause of tho Pap&py at variance by his pretensions with tho interests of civil so ciety in Germany and Italy. lie has provoked auoh energetic retaliation from Bismarck us tho .expulsion of tho Jesuits,’ and, more lately, of tho jnonaatlo orders. In Italy, tho resistance has boon loss passionate, and tho Ministry, in moving for tho suppression of tho monastic in stitutions.of Rome, and tho disbondmqnt of tho “ Pope's Militia," have again and again assever ated their anxiety to avoid all attack upon tho religious constitution of tho Papacy. Still they tiavo steadily pushed tho Religious Corporations frill through the Italian parliament, and veetpr day it poaflod tho Bonato, and now noodn only King Emanuel's approval to bocomo law. Should this bo given, tbo monaatlo orders of Eomo will coaao to havo’auy corporate existence. Prof. Agassis oboe said he had no time to mako raonoy iu; but there scorns to bo no dan ger,that lack of funds will compel him to pause' in tho solontlflo researches to which ho has given himself with sUoh generous enthusiasm. It is but a fow weeks ulno6;>*a rich Now York to bacconist gave him Pomkoßo Island, with an endowment, to found a school . for opon olr studios in natural science during tho.summer months, and yesterday Prof. Agas sla’a daughter, who married a rich Bostonian, gave her father a contribution of SIOO,OOO for his Museum of Comparative Zoology at 'Cam bridge, which already ranks as tho flnost of Us kind in tho world. It is quite possible, under tho operation of tho now railroad law, that tho longest way round may bo thpohoapost route. Tho shortest lino botwoon Chicago and Bt. Bonis is 280 miles long, but it is wholly in Illinois, and therefore subject to tho pro rata, law. No special rate can bo given over that lino. Btilllt can bo bad, by a circuitous route. Tho freight may bo. shipped ovor any of tho Eastern roads, into Indiana, tbonco south on tho L., N., A. & O. B. B, to a junction with tho Ohio & Mississippi Railroad, tbonco Into St. Louis. This routo would bo ovor 200 miles longer, but, os only 160 milos of tbo haul would bo amonablo to tho pro rata law, a much bettor rate could bo afforded than by the Illinois lino. We have received a letter from a German mer chant of Sheboygan, Wis., complaining of the Infliction upon himself of a circular In the Ger man language, intended to excite his prejudices against the firm of Field, Loiter <fe Go., of. this olty. The circular consists of an article from the Illinois Btaats-Zciiung, and is headed “Damn the Dutchman.** Wo have previously alluded to the article, ■which' relates how certain clerks of the , above-named firm wore summoned to serve on a Jury in a case whore a saloon-keeper was tried for violating the Sunday ordinance, oto. 'Wo are informed that this circular was printed to the number of 10,- 000 and sent out by a rival firm in the dry goods trade in this oity. Wo shall bo glad to hear that the irreligious heading was not sanctioned- by this firm. - Mr. Fr. Koohn, of Sheboygan, indi cates that ho does not thank them for his copy. ’ ' ' ' ■ Tho Ohioago produce markets wore moderately active yesterday, and groin was higher. Moss pork was in moderate request, and 6o per brl lower, at 815.66@16.70 cosh, and $15.76@15.80 seller July. Lard was quiet, and steady at $8.32% per 100 lbs cash, and $8.40(5)8.45 seller July. Moats wore quiet and unchanged, at 0% @o%o for shoulders, 8%@8%0 for short ribs, 8%@8%0 for short clear, and 9%@11%0 for 'sweet-pickled hams. Highwluoa wore more ac tive, and lo lower, at 890 per gallon. Lako freights wore active, and a shade easier, at 6%0 for corn to Buffalo. Flour was steady, aud rather more active. Wheat was In bettor demand, and 2o higher, closing at $1.21% seller tho month, and $1.17% seller July. Com was less active, and lo higher, closing at 82%0 cash, and 84%0 seller July. Oats wore quiet aud a shade higher, closing dull at 25%0 cosh, apd 27%0 seller July. Bye was quiet and a shade firmer, at 60%0, Barley was dull and nominal at 56@600 for poor to good No. 2. On Saturday evening last there was in store in this city 408,740 bn wheat, 4,042,198 bu com, 1,622,020 bu oats, 146,664 bu rye, and 66,129 bu barley. Hogs wero dull at So@Sso doolino, clos ing easy at $4.25@4.70. Cattle aud sheep wore without important ohango. A somewhat peculiar insurance case has just been tried before Judge Withey at Grand Rapids, Mich. A Mr. Roberts had a large col lection of’ paintings, which were catalogued as having a value of $40,000. Thoy were iusorod in tho Homo of Now York for $9,700, and were totally destroyed by fire in 1871. Tho Company neglecting or refusing to pay, Roberta brought suitj the Oompany then offered to pay him one third the amount of. the policy. At this junc ture a Mr. Luce, upon being informed of tho state of tho case, declared it an outrage, aud agreed to pay Roberts tho amount offered by tho Company, aud all in oxcoss that ho might col lect. Roberta thereupon assigned the policy to Luco, who brought suit as assignee.. The Com pany employed as their attorneys to dofeud tho suit the same firm which Roberts had on gaged to prosecute it. A largo number of witnesses woro brought from all parts of tho country to testify as exports, several going from Chicago. The trial lasted nearly a week, and resulted in a verdict for tho plaintiff for tho whole amount of the policy. Tho defendants, it scorns, offered a ; largo amount of ovidonco to show that the pic tures wore of littlo value as works of art; hut tho plaintiff claimed that, independent of any value thoy might have had as works of art, thoy had a commercial value as pictures, and that value they claimed, and to tho extent of tho pol icy thoy got a verdict. THE CITY BUDGET. The Finance Committee laid before the Com mon Council on Monday evening the ordinance making appropriations for the fiscal year ending April 1,1874. The amount asked for by the various departments was 90,776,113. The Com mittee report an appropriation of $5,500,0115 of this sum about $325,000 will bo received from licenses, and tbo remainder, $5,161,000, will have to bo raised by taxation. Assuming that the igroaa valuation of property for city taxation will bo $300,000,000,' tUo‘ rato of tax will bo about 17# mills. Not Included in this amount or appropriation aro several un expended balances belonging to certain funds which still have some of tho canal redemption money on hand. -The aggregate of tax is larger thou has over boon laid for gen eral purposes before, hut Is not,'perhaps, larger thnij the extraordinary circumstances of tho city demand.- Tho assessed valuation of taxable property in tbo oity is $800,000,000. Tho real valiio of the property is fully 50 per oout more, making on aggregate of $150,000,000. Tho tax levied on this latter valuation would he less than iff per cent, and that, too, to moot extraordinary expenditures arising out of tho-changes made necessary by the fire. The only salaries proposed to ho increased are those of tho Mayor and Comptroller, the increase to be SI,OOO In each case, and to begin with tho officers chosen next fall. Oue now Item of expense is tho coustmotlon of a brick sower commoting tho l&ko with the North Branch at Fullerton avenue, through Thlob lower, by tho *1(1 of a pump, tho North THE CHICAGO DAILY' iUJNE 18, 1873. Branch may bo Hooded and cleansed. ’ For this work $160,000 is proponed. Tho snm noodod for tho Firo Department Is $612,062, which Includes tho coot of additional apparatus, engine-houses, hose, and repairs. Tho amount rooommoudod for tho police of . tho city is $766,404, which includes an alio nance for 100 additional policemen, making tbo wholo' numbor of patrolmen 626. Tho loot Increase of tbo police force was made in 1871, when fifty men wore added. Since that time, and ' especially since tho Arc, tho city has expanded in all directions, greatly enlarging tho area of tho settled districts, and rendering it impossible for tho old foroo to patrol it with any degree of carc and attention, Tho groat increase of population and bnsinoss necessitates tho employment of a much larger force in the business districts. There was a time, and within a comparatively re. cent date, when there was but one street-crossing, Lake and Clark streets, that required a policeman. Now ihero are iwoniy places of. that kind. Tho nnmbor of bridges has also Increased, and the travel over thorn has become so groat that a! - large foroo is now roqnlrod for that duty alone.' Tho increase of patrolmen necessitates an In crease of station-houses, and other expendi tures. Tho limitation upon tho amount of .tax 'to bo raised for soworago has thrown tho cost of repairs, • cleaning, Ao., upon tho general fund, . and with this relief tbo wholo sum applicable to tbo construction of sowers is but $300,000. Tho sum applicable to tho extension of water supply pipes is for a like reason limited to $600,000. . There may bo some small items in . the ordinance which might ho dispensed with,' but as a whole tho Committee’ have exorcised considerable fidelity In cutting down. Unless tho Common Council shall hereof tor mako addi tions to it not now expected, tho ordinance will probably provo unexceptionable to the com munity. THE CITY SEWERAGE. A carefully-compiled map of tho city,‘showing' the extent of the sewerage system of Ohioago, 1 furnishes an interesting study, showing how de ficient Chicago still is in this respect. From this map wo loam that Words 1, 2, 8,10, 11, 18, and 20 are pretty thoroughly sewered. Wards 4, 6, 8,12,18,17, and 10 are partly soworod, while Wards 0, 7, 0,14,16, and 16 can hardly ho bo said to have any sowers. Ward 0 is densely populated, and' the ground is generally ,low, and stands in need of thorough sewerage, and yet except in the northeast whore it is traversed by the sewers of the Fourteenth Ward, there are no sowers, The Seventh Word is oven more destitute. In the Eighth Word there is no sewer west of Halsted street, except tho one under Blue Island avenue. The Ninth Ward, with its 86,000 inhabitants, closely built np, has. very imperfect sewerage. That part of tho Thirteenth Ward lying between Lake and Madison streets is well soworod, while tho Fourteenth Word, lying Immediately north, has not ovor ono milo of sowordgo all told. In tho Fifteenth Word, whore there, are probably not loss than 45,000 persons living, sewerage is al most'unkuown. In this ward there are hut three xnoiua to tho river, and, on tho other side of tho river, the Sixteenth Ward has but one main, and tho Seventeenth but one main to tho river. Of course, tho sewerage of a city has to bo constructed upon a system. It has to begin at the centre and spread in all directions. Natural ly, tho streets nearer tho rivor have boon soworod first, and those sowers have boon extend ed' from time to lime. But tho sys tem has boon somewhat irregularly car ried out by tho necessity of sewering streets preparatory to their being paved! Wher ever property-owners have been wise enough and practical enough to go to tho expense of having the streets paved, they have thereby se cured not only that groat benefit, but have se cured with it a supply of water, sewerage, and gas. Thus tho enterprising people owning prop erty on West Madison street, by paying for pav ing that street to Western avenue, are now en joying tho loxury of water, gas, sewers, and a clean street the whole length of that thorough fare. In like manner Hoisted street, being paved, is soworod from North avonuo to Arohor avonuo. Tho owners of property in tho North Division bravely encountered the tax for paving tho streets up to Division street, and have all the consequent advantages. Tho neglected parts of tho oity aro those whore sowers are not only a luxury hut a necessity. A walk through tho Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth Wards would bo instructive to those who are interested in tho public health. The representatives of those wards havo boon industrious in opposing tho improving of their streets on tho scorb that tho people woro poor and oonld not boar tho tax. Of all taxes,' funer als aro tho most expensive, and a largo portion of tboso streets aro rooking with stenches, pro ceeding from a total absence of drainage and tho garbage rotting in tho ditches. Though those words ore far more densely populated thou any others In tho city, they are, except the Fif teenth, the least supplied with water, gas, or sowerago. Wo havo already spoken of tho Fifteenth Ward. That ward Is very largo in ter ritory, and, though it : is the most populous ward in tho city,, tho population is not so closely packed as in the others wo have mentioned. Experience has shown that clean streets in Chicago can only ho attained by having them paved, aud wo suggest to tho Aldermen of these wards that tho best sanitary measure they can propose for their respective wards is tho rapid pavomeutof.all their streets, tho consequent fill ing of tho horrible ditches, tho immediate estab lishment of draiu&go, and a plentiful supply of pure lako water. Every dollar spent in improving tho streets odds ton dollars to tho value of tho property adjoining, and that property-owner is, tho wisest who takes the earliest opportunity of ; scouring clean streets, plenty of water, gas, and complete drainage for those who occupy his property. - That tho movement among tho country news papers for omanoipatlon from tho dead-hoad and dead-boat system is making progress, is evident from a series of resolutions adopted by the Mis souri editors and publishers, in their annual con vention hold recently at Louisiana, Mo’. Those resolutions sot forth that a newspaper office is a business establishment, in which editors and publishers make their living; that a man has as pmch right to order a sack of coffee from a grocer, a legal opinion from a lawyer, or a coffin from an undertaker, without intending to pay for it, os ho has to expect gratuitous services from a newspaper; that all personal. and political matter, having for Us object tho promotion of individual fortunes or ambitions, should bo treated as other business matters ; that dood-hoadlug, political, personal, and commercial, is " played out; " and that any editor who fails to carry out tho spirit of tboso resolutions shall oeaso to ho a member of tbo Viasourl Association. -The purpose of tho new departure of tho Missouri .odiioni la .very clearly oxproDßod hero, but thoro la an omiaaion in fall ing to fix upon tho newspaper profession tho propor responsibility for tho onatoma whloh aro condemned to bo abandoned. ; . Tho very first otop for tho country prose to tako hi tho now di rection ia to out off from ovory acknowledgment of dopondonoo on tbolr port. So ,long',ea. they consent to solicit railroad passes, acknowledge tho rooolpt of prize pumpkins, pull olgar-atoroa and aoda-fountalna, and aooopt gratultloa of any kind, they cannot oxpoot from ■ tho public tho recognition of thoir services at tho cash valuo which they oro now inclined to demand. It Is only wbon tho country editors formally declare it as thoir policy to pay as they go, tfmfc they odn ovor otpoct tho public to adopt tho aamo rule in patronizing thorn. Thoro is no.’doubt that tho advantages of tbo ohango would all bo on thosldo of tbo country, prose, vyhicb/ accord ing to its present custom, gives away more than It received in tho oxohongo of gratuiitoa, be sides otoating tho Improeslon among tho popple that they can.havo pretty much anything In sorted in a nowapapor without paying for it.

ZOLOE. To Messrs, Alkon & Hess- belongs the credit of having produced, for tho llrst time in this city, a genuine spectacular opera, with all the dramatic, musical, ballot, and scenic effects (brought out iu a conscientious manner. Tho opera Is.Auber’s “ La' Bayadere," which was written specially for Taglionl, and at ono timo I was very famous. Its songs and its dance musio wore for a long timo tho rago all over tho world, and tho older generation of theatre-goers look hack with wistful eyes to tho'timo when 14 La Bayadere ” was in all her glory, just as tho old opera-goers lovo to recall tho days of Grlsl and Mallbron. It was first brought out In tins coon-' ; try twenty-fivo or thirty years ago, but it has not since boon performed, owing to tho expense necessary to its proper presentation. It is an interesting fact that tho troupe at Aiken’s is 'playing it from tho original manuscript, which jwaa used at tho firat porformanco of it—now tho property, wo believe, of Milo. Morlacohl. Tho, story of the opera is tho familiar old legend of tho god Brahma and tho Bayadere. Brahma comes to earth in disguise aud mingles with mortals to select some woman of raro beauty and perfection, to share his Paradise with him. A troupo of dancing Bayaderes happen into the city, where ho is staying contrary to tho laws of tho oity, but tho Grand Vizier, , who Is inspired with a sudden passion for ono of them; condones her offense upon condition that she shall ornament his harem, to which she finally consents'in order,-to save Brahma/ who has incurred tho displeasure of tho Vizier, and for whom sho has conceived a sudden and ■ vio lent passion.’ Tho Vizier lavishes gold and jewels upon her, and entertains her in roya’ state, but she finds moans to fiy with tho Un known adorer. Then follows a long series of tests by which tho Unknown socks to discover whether she actually loves him, aud whether' she is a woman fitted to adorn his abode. Tho various tests provo successful, hut moan while tho Vizier and his satellites' discover tho jrotroat of tho runaway lovers. Tho Vizier enters with his sp'o&remon, and is about to seize the Bayadere aud boar her off, when the Unknown suddenly discovers himself os Brahma. Ho falls upon his knees affrighted. His people, whom ho has long persecuted, rush in and carry him off to satiate their vengeance, whileßrahma and tho faithful Bayadere mount a triumphal oar, and ascend to the abodes of bliss, amid whirling suns; revolving spirals of gold' and silver, Vibrating palmu and ferns, ouplds, gherubs and coryphees posed - in - a wilderness of tinsel and gorgeous in tho lime-light. Tho plot ia a very • protty ■ ono, novor tiresome, and abundant in strong situations, whilo tho combi nation of musio and tho bullet lends a very di versified and picturesque Interest to tho move ment of the drama. The musio of tho work is light, graceful,, aud sparkling, with now and thou some quaint and comic effects which re mind one of Offenbach. The ballot musio, especially iu the second act, is very felicitous, aud some of it will bo recognized at ouoe as hav ing done duty for tho ballot ou many varied occasions. ’ ‘ Tho general movement of tho work readily diyidoaltflolf Into tho vocal, tho dramatic, and tho torpsichoroan. Mias laabolla Mott, a lady who boa never boon hoard hoxo before, in tho prima donna of tho opora.

Which wore very grateful. . Wo have no doubt, that thutiow aingorwill speedi ly become a favorite by her,vocalization alone, -The Hr. Northrop, who took the fmrt. of; the la .a singer who a, evidently unaccustomed to stage bus iness and has much to . loam .from a dramatio point of view. Ho haa a very light voice of ralhor pleasant quality, but sings With an indif ferent method. He was originally, east for the unknown, but subsequently the dramatio part or speaking linospf that character wore assigned to Hr. Pierce, while ho retained the musm of the part, which will account for tbo constantoon f usion arising from tbo fact of Zoloe (MorlaccUl) haying two lovers, one singlngand the other de claiming his passion. Harry Toakos, tbo basso, was tho Grand Vizier of the opera, and develop ed ibo conventional savagery of a Grand Vlzior, at times, in a manner partaking of. comicality, ??i w £ o ft t times in a very tragic way. His long connection with English opera has mono him familiar vto Ohioago audiences, and a favorite with them. He boa still tho same fine quality and. profound quantity of voice, as over, and also she. same reckless method. But, whatever ho may do, ho is one of those happy mortals in whom every . fault will be overlooked, in virtue of tho hearti ness and earnestness and manly vigor with which ho does everything, from a delicate lovo scene to tho most towering madness. Peakes always moans business, and handles things without gloves. There is no daintiness or timidity about him. and such energy and gusto in.,a whole stage .full of gentle Doings , are very agreeable. Several offootivo anas are allotted to him in tho ilrst act, but in tho sec ond ho has nouo, and only tho simple announco ,mont thatit is 10 o'clock (when in reality it* was midnight) to speak. Ho has, therefore, Intro duced a scona called “ Tho Curse," which is in keeping with tho final situation—a very offootivo bit of musical declamation, written for him by Mr. Owen, of this city. The chorus Is much more acceptable than the spectacle choruses us ually have been, and although at times it was badly out and mixed up, yet, on tho whole, it got . through its work creditably. Tho orchestra was fair, and when it really gets down to Its work, may prove very offootivo. Tho general dramatio effect of tho work was very good, and considering tho fact that it was- a first performance there was unusual promptness and smoothness in the reprosontatlon. Tho -.ballot, which forms a very important loaturo of tho performance, is made up of seven oxcoUont dancers, some of whom: 'belonged to tho original Viounoso ballot brought oyer boro by Jarrott cfc Palmer. They are hooded by Milo. Morlaoohlj who has trained them very thoroughly and inspired them with some of her own artistic spirit, and given them an idea that there is something in tho ballet business besides posturing and heavy standing: round. ' Notwithstanding, her slight physique, Morlacohi accomplishes wonders, especially in pirouetting upon her toes, in which feature she la unrivaled. She has had tho good taste to make her ballot unobjectionable except to those who object to a ballot altogether, aua she has also displayed a rare intelligence and knowledge of art in giving a poetical surround ing to tho composition of the various dances. In tho matter of scenery, tho managers have not spared expense, and tho artists employed have done themselves groat credit. Tho open ing scone is very handsome and heat without a particle of gaadinoss, while tbo transformation scone which closes the opera is superior in ar tistid work and design, although not so abund ant in tinsel as those to which wo have boon heretofore accustomed. Tho huge disk which finally drops with tho figure in relief upon it, is an exquisite piece of work. The music for the transformation is that written by Koppitz for tho transformation iu tbo 44 Midsummer Night's Dream " whoa-that play was produced in Boston some time ago. Tho opera is preceded by a medley entertain ment by tho fiorgor Family, who give a concert with tho bells, female horn players, «ko., &c., and also by . character personations by Hr. Sol Smith Bussell, whoso eccentric delineations kept tho audience in tho host of humor and secured for him several encores. Tho hom-playing by tho ladies of tho Berger Family, although de cidedly crude, was also encored. The audience was a Tory, largo quo, and was evidently in a very agreeable ' state of satisfaction, although the performance lasted until nearly midnight. As a whole, tho entertainment was a very handsome success, and 14 Zoloq " may ho sot down for a long run. . .. I HOOLET’S THEATRE. Frequenters of Mr. Hooloy’s Theatre’ have re cently boon assured by tho programme of that charming place of amusement that thoy saw a farce entitled “ Seeing Dillon.’* Wo wish to corroot such an impression. Tho original farco by. that name was played, last evening under tho titlo of “ A Game of Lovo.” It has boon played before in Chicago, but has always failed to give general satisfaction. Managers have failed to Srofitbyit; audiences bavo boon disappointed y it, air. DiUon himself bos boon made to feel that it was not a popular piece. But as the Eublio generously crowded tho theatre at his oneflt on Monday evening, and put .several hundred dollars into his pocket, Mr. Dillon treated thorn to a repetition of tho farco. Whon anybody says John DiUon is not funny it may bo concluded that ho is hard up for a remark. Whon completely froo from stim ulation. Mr. DUIon Is' an oxcoUont oonlodian.. When nis stimulation is excessive ho is still funny, but more awkward in gait, and a trifle clumsy in olooution. In tho first act-of “A Gome of Lovo,*’ it was found that the exhila rated comedian was absent. Ho was to haVo played Ted Murphy. Long after tho tlmo whoa bo should have come on, and in the middle of a scene, where he was not supposed to bo wanted, ho loUed clumsily in and made a few unmean ing remarks. Tno- prompter tried to choke him off; tho stage manager mode at' grab at him, ‘ but to no purpose. Mr. , DU-; lon gazed ‘ stupidly around, observed that ho had made a mistake, and, with ono despairing hiccup, made his exit —for good. Nothing more was soon of Dillon. Mr. Giddons was hurriedly sent fori Ho had never seen the part; didn’t know a line of it; but with tho adaptability which has already distinguished him hero, be fell right into his place, and achieved a success quite notable in the rendition of a character hitherto regarded as out of his Unc. Ho cannot receive too much credit for the manner in which ho UUed tho unexpected gap. But tho company was demoralized, and a 'brilliant comedywas much mutilated, Ah Mr. Giddons did hot, and could not. bo expected .to,, -know bis linos, the piece was jumbled badly. - Even with these disadvantages, which will have disappeared to-night, tho uuraor of tho play could not bo concealed. Tho situations are ipotjt amusing; tho plot is original; tho dialogue sparkling; tho tone excellent. It must be ad mitted that tho denouement is not altogether comprehensible, but this It will bo readily under-' stood, was owing to tho upset of tho company by Mr. Dillon’s unwarrantable conduct, tinder tho circumstances it is scarcely safe to givo a verdict upon tho piece, but so far as con bo discerned through the aloud of disadvantages under which it was played last night. “ A Game of Lovo ”is ono of the best plays produced at Hooloy’a since its opening. The public will not soon forgive Mr. Dillon -for his conduct, Mr. Tlooloy has boon a long-suffering manager. He ought to take the present opportunity to give that worthy • bqiuo very substantial correction. - ■ .

State University Commencement—Ad dress Before tlio Law Class—Two Hundredth Anniversary of tho Dis covery of the Mississippi Diver. - Special Diepatch to The Chicago Tribune. Madison, Wis., Juno 17.—Tho address boforo tho University Law Class last evening by E. O. Ryan, of Milwaukee, ono of tho oldest and ablest .lawyers'of tho State, was listened to by a largo i audience, including Gov. Washburn and several Siato officers, Judges of tho State and United States Courts, members of tho bar, and many ladles, and was powerful, philosophical, and ele vated, spiced with withering sarcasm. Law, ho said, in tho highest sense was tho will of God, obedience to which was man’s duty, and which man had imperfectly formulated for tho guidance of society. Personal rights, tho order and welfare of society, rest in common law. It has guided tho country through many perils,' and wo owe much of what wo now have to common law. It needs amendment, but this and its twin'-slstcr, tho civil law, have boon tho noblest' aids ; to civilization. Pott and flip pant innovations should hot bo allowed to lay bands upon it. This State suffers from this in novation to-day by tho substitution of a code for common law pleadings. Lawyers who stand charged with tno holy office of administering God’s justice among mon, of serving man by diligent study, ‘ -protecting society and defending human rights, should have high integrity of character, inherent lovo of justice and right, generous sympathy with mon, and re liance on God. Tho Bench symbolized divino justice on earth, Tho Judgo who is corrupt soils God’s gifts. The pettifogger is tho.black leg of the law, a wot-nurao of trivial quarrels. Ho is generally found In the lowest grades. Ho is a troglodyte found in political conventions, Boards of Supervisors, and Common Councils, waiting for a profitable job. When he cannot choat for gain no cheats for lovo, Of this fam ily Is the shyster, tho friend of ruffians and pimps, a prowler, nn organizer of porjnry, tampering with‘turnkeys, tho counsel of gnift, the Attorney General of crime. Most bitterly denounced word the professional hucksters who trodo in judicial forms and-oat tho bread of shamoby judicial nepotism, which strangles the judicial function, deposes justice, purloins tho yoiy bread of llfo to feed tho Judge's kindred. Old parties seem to bo passing away. Tho grand old party which I Uopol may not survive, seems to have forgotten Its principles. The other party seems to bo 'hoar dissolution. There is looming up a’new 'power. Wo hoo tho banners dud colors approaching—tho democracy. Tho accumulation. of vast . individual wealth bodes no' good. Already ono groat covporatipn has trifled with tho State and deceived it. There is great fear that it and its rival have confed erated to divide tho State between them. A moneyed aristocracy is tho most cruel of all aristocracies. Ho urged tho nowly-plodgod law yers to contend for truth, Justice, and popular rights against powers’of ovil, for tho aristocracy of the brain against that of wealth, and closed by warmly - welcoming thorn to tho Wisconsin bar. Tills being tbo twq hundredth anniversary of tbo diapovory of tbo Mississippi River by Joliet and Marquette, it was intended to have a grand celebration at Prairie du Oblou.but for various reasons it was given up.
