GET DOWN AND OUT. Xttart WHAT THB NEW COUNCIL WILL XAKZ THE usuEPEa no. The new Aldermen hold another caucus at the Grand Pacific yesterday afternoon to further consider the question of “ bouncing * Colvin. There were present Messrs. Aldrich (Chairman), Pearson, HcAnley, Ballard, Thompson, Gilbert, Stewart. Sheridan, Cullerton, Berber, Lawlor, Tan Osdel, Throop, Briggs, McCrea, Bawleigh Cleveland, Kiessen, Linsenbarth, Kirk, Bobct, Rosenberg, Waldo, and Smith. Caspar Bntz aod two other gentlemen, whose names the re porter did not know, were also present. The assistance of the newspaper-men was respect* folly declined, and therefore the account of the proceedings most be brief. Am soon as the meeting was called to order Gen. Thompson announced that he had received the opinions of Messrs. Dent aod Jewett on the legal points involved, and proceeded to read obout fiftv pages of legal cap. Stripped of the legal verbiage, and the numerous references to law reports, the advice was simply this : That Colvin has no right to the office; that Mr. jSStf fmJßfn*. jw* Hkv otjJWasi i«e»U7. _ tad Hut all tint U requiriU to place him in the position is for tho' Council to canvass the vote oast - for him sad declare him elected. The lawyers all agree that no special election ia necessary unless Mr. Horne should resign after qualifying in the usual way. The opinions were received with general satis* faction, and the question of their publication was afterwards discussed. Several gentlemen were in favor of giving them up to the papers at once, but the majority inclined to the view that premature publication would give the Col- Tioites an opportunity to prepare a counter blast, which'might have the effect of disturbing their plans. It was ultimately decided that the opinions should be withheld from the press un til Monday morning. Gen. Thompson was ap pointed a Committee of One to see that the newspapers did not got hold of the documents until then. . * An expression of the meeting was then taken, and the result was that all present pledged themselves to overthrow the usurper in the manner suggested by Messrs. Dent and Jewett. Alter discoseing several other matters of minor Importance,—such as*- remodeling the Board of Public Works and making improve ments in other city departments,—the meeting adjourned to Gen. Thompson’s office on Mon day afternoon, when the finishing touch to the plans will be given. THE LUMBER TROUBLES. A tfwmKO 07 TUB OWNBBS of lumber-yards in this city was to hare Man held at the Lumberman’s Exchange yesterday morning, but owing to the inclemency of tbe weather only about fifteen persons made their appearance, and it was therefore thought inadvisable to call the meeting formally to order. An Informal talk regarding tbe reduction of wages of tbe laborers in tbe yards was had. It was stated that nearly all tbo firms had decided to continue to pay last year’s wages, as it was inadvisable to insist on a re duction at this time. Those present were also of tbe opinion that a reduction should not be insisted upon joss now, and they all stated that they woald after to-morrow pay last year’s wages. Mr. Martin stated that some sixty men went to work in in his yard in the morning at the old wages, bnt some of tbe belligerent sbovera drove them off by force. He had also been in formed that at other yards similar excesses bad occurred. It is the general opinion that after this there will be no further trouble, and that to-morrow the men will go to work at the old wages. CapL Ellis. Sergt. Vesey, and Sergt O’Don nell yesterday devoted a considerable share of their time and attention to the lumber u Stov ers ”in the Twenty-second street region, yes terday morning tbe strikers commenced opera tions by driving the workmen awar from tho different yards, and tbe officers shove named were called upon to render assirtance. They first repaired to Martin’s lumber-yird on Throop street, near the bridge. They succeeded in ecaitering tbe men in quick order, bnt they ral lied again at Thompson's yard, in Bridgeport, and renewed their work of interfering with the “shovers* at work in that yird. The officers followed them up, and drove them bacs on the West Side, down Haleted strseti and Conalport avenue, chasing them around for about three hours, and finally dispersing them at Beldler’s lumber-yard, on South Loomis street. The purpose of the officers vas not to arrest the men, who are simply poor infatuated Bohemians,’ most of them, but only to disperse them peace' ably. The laborers wore about fifty in number, and were determined in thdr purpose of intimi dating tbe men who were quietly attending to their duties in the various lumber-yards. The perseverance of the officers was too much for them, and they were finally compelled to aban don their plana for the day at least. Threats were made, however, that they would return to the business Monday morning, and the police will accordingly be on band to take a part in tbe matinee. Tbe insurgents will meet to-day at Sacic’s Hall, corner of Brown and Twentieth streets, and ac the comer of Nineteenth and Bobey streets, to determine upon further pro ceedings. They declare their readiness to at tack McCormick's lumber-yard next, and would no doubt have paid it a visit yesterday but lor the storm. EDUCATIONAL A S 3HPOBTAKT ADDITIOW is about to be made to the educational msfcltu tionfi of Chicago. As announced m The Tbzb tjne at tho time of the dedication of the Holy Name Cathedral, Bishop Foley intends to estab lish on tho North Side a seminary for young la dies in which the culture given shall be both solid and polite. The main step has already been taken towards tbe enterprise. The Bishop invited tbe religious of the Sacred. Heart, who have hitherto had a retired but very flourishing academy on the West Side, to take charge of the institution, and,- during the past week, this invitation was accepted by the Bey. Mother Tucker, Superior Vicar of tho Western Province of tho Order, who has just returned to the mother-house at Maryville, a beautiful suburb of St. Louis, after completing the preliminary arrangements. Madame Tucker is a descendant of an old English family who held tbe early faith unbroken through the crimson tides of tho sixteenth century. She is a lady of high capac ity, extremely fine address, and extensive edu cational experience. It ia her intention to found a seminary which shall take nota ble rank in the West The course of study ' will be uniform with that of Sacred Heart schools throughout : the world, the best known of which in the United States is that of Manhattanville, where tbe Greeley sisters were educated, and in which Miss Bennett ia soon to toko the veiL The curriculum in Chica go will include classics and modem languages, a scientific department, music and art, unde' tho direction of ladies of the Order and speci’l masters. The music of the bouse, it is under stood, will be placed under the direction o a well-known musician, eminent in the prof The seminary will be open to persons of Jl de nominations, but there will be no inter ference with dissenting religious views a formal compliance with tbe discipline. The principal class-mistresses will be brought from the chief house of the Order at Pads, whither novices, of talent are sect to complete their studies, and it is hoped that Hme. Tucker her self will act as Superior of the institution during the first year. Tho site baa not yet been se lected, but will be chosen in a few weeks from among tbe elegant houses in tho eastern section of the North Side. In a twelvemonth the board ing-school now at West Taylor and Throop streets will be united with the now day-school, and a permanent building erected which, in ; architectural grace, will enhance the already re markable attractions of tins division of Chicago. THE COUNTY BUILDING- John B. Darka, the newly-elected Police Magistrate for the City of Evanston, yesterday filed his bonds and qualified. Theodore Worth, a Constable In the Town of Lake, has lost his official bead because he failed in the small matter of furnishing a now bond. His place will be filled by special elec tion at an early day. Hie county punter mot his first defeat yester day, bv being underbid in a proposition to whiten the Recorder's office. When Eogan and Periolat are forced to compete with others for their several jobs they will most likely meet a like fate. Judge WaDaoc was os duty ycattrday—some thing unusual for Saturday. The oof/ business transacted worthy of note was tie proving of the will of Edwin Erase, and cbe issuing to John aod Dorothea Dreas of letters testamenta ry under bond for 36,400. Tha Criminal Court will nat ba in session to morrow, on accoant of the alterations now going on in the court-room. Jodgv Moore has been called to lowa to attend a rick sister, and if he Is not detained court will opm Tuesday. The Committee on Finame will recommend to the County Board to-m*rtow that a loan of 3100,000 for five month.*be effected at once to meek an old loan of the tame amount which be comes due on the llth instant to the Merchants* National Bank. Commissioner Lonegau is now estimating as to the amount of mmer that will probably be needed during the jear to carry on the Court- Mouse work, that no necessary fire bonds may he set aside to be, sold for chat purpose. In making some examinations of county finances it has been ascertained that 31,200,000 of the 31.500,000 five lends have already been dis posed of, wind 350,000 have been redeemed and canceled. Tbe'Commiteo on Public Buildings and Pub lic Service yesterday agreed upon the form of advert isomeit for bida for the cut-stone for the new Court -louse, which appears io another column. Committee, it will be noticed, makes oneof the conditions that no convict la bor shall to employed. If the people of the State heir the same ideas they would soon be taxed hundred thousand dollars per year, astf old, for the maintenance of ths con victs imdleness at Joliet. TBZ GRAND JUST.

MAY 7, 1876-SIXTEEN PAGES. great deal of work in a very short space of time, State’a-Attomoy Beed was before the body a few minutes to call its attention to some resolutions adopted some months ago by the County Board, asking an investigation into the conduct of for mer County Treasurers in taking certain emolu ments to which noder tho law their title was re garded as questionable. Mr. Beye was also be fore the jury about the same, but no action was taken on account of some law points that need-, od a more careful examination. The State’s Attorney is to give an opinion on the law Tues day. The jury before adjourning took sash action in reference to its future and the investigations which have attracted so much attention as to sot all doubts and surmises at rest. The inves tigations will be the special order for to-morrow, and the Citizens’ Association has volunteered to furnish the witnesses and the . matters to be looked into. The scope of the'investigations will be wide, it is understood, covering the erec tion of public buildings, the letting of contracts, public improvements, city and county, the pack ing of juries, the conduct of certain county offi cers, and tho whole line of action by which men elected to office in rags have been enabled to retire at the expiration of a few years rolling in wealth. The Association has for some time been gathering information privately on all these and kindred subjects, and has muck of the ovidenct to be presented ao systematized that very little time will ba con sumed in Its hearing, Commissioner Holden was to hare gone be fore the jury to prefer the charge ot perjury against Mr. Smith, the lightning-rod man who tostiled before the last jury, bat. looking tho matter over, bo concluded that it might be diffi cult to make oat a case.. He may reconsider hia action, however, and look in upon the jury to-. morrow. THE CITY-HALL. The City Collector’s receipts yesterday were but $309. Water rents yesterday were $2,639, and re ceipts from tbe City Collector $473. The City Treasurer paid out $50,000 yesterday on maturing city certificates. , Aldennen-elect Boserof tbe Eighteenth Ward, liinsonbarth of tbe Seventeenth, and Ballard of tbo Third qualified yesterday.

The Board of Public Works yesterday issued an estimate of $2,500 to Earnshaw A Goble for masonry work on tbe tower for the stand-pipe at the West Side pumplog-works.

Burlington & Quincy Railway’s share of the same. Tbe disagreeable weather of yesterday had the effect of keeping the City-Hall pretty clear of haogers-on. .Those who were visible were some of the hard-dying officials, who were taking a* lost and long gaze at the scene of their former plnoder. Almost all the offices were closed early, and tbo place wore a deserted ap pearance. Soma of tho friends of the Acting Mayor were around with their braggadocio, which they have been using ■ for many days. They claim a majority of the new Council, but some of them are ratbor doubtful as to tbo re sult. The first session of the now Board of Aldermen is looked for with increasing interest. THE ASSESSMENT, Comptroller Hayes baa written a letter to tbe Assessors of the Towns of Ohicago’.advisory on their duties. A copy was taken, and is aa fol lows: r Although the time la set for parties Interested to ap pear and aeb*»e correction of your assessments after they are made, it is nevertheless true that but few persons do so appear, and it is only when the Collector cafls upon them that complaints are beard of gross in justice resulting from an adherence to the letter of the law is regard to assessments on personal property here, when it is widely departed from on all kinds of property in other parts of the State. I do not claim the right to direct yon as to the per formance of your duties, but tho City o fChicago is so largely interested in the certain collection of its taxes, which depends greatly upon tbe equality and fairness of the assessments, that I feel justified in making a suggestion on the subject. lam informed that, at tbe last session, the State Board of Equalization recog nized 50 per cent of its ordinary cash value aa the cash value for taxation throughout the State. Z would therefore suggest that it would be proper for yon to conform to the action of the State Board, and admit, aa tho cash voice for assessments, 50 per cent of the ordinary cash value of personal property. Yours, respectfully B. S. Haras, Comptroller. ANNOUNCEMENTS. Tbe pews in tbe Third Presbyterian' Churoh will be rented Honday evening.

The Jin (fie of Silver—Boston Girls Knit ting Purses for the Coming Coin. An Old Poston Belle and Her Fashions— Anna Dickinson—A Century Vase. JV#m Ow Otra CwruvcnOmU Bostoic, May 4,—“ May days are moving days,* * begins to have almost as much significance here m Boston as it has in New York,—especially in these May days, when salaries are down and land lords still bold, with a death grip, to their high rents. It will be a death-grip, indeed, to many of them in a way they have not foreseen, if the hold continaee long, for houses to rent are.ac cumulating ominously. WBKDHLL PHILLIPS SHAKES HB HEAD significantly, with an “I told yon so* expres sion, when he walks by these booses. Didn’t he foretell all this more than a year ago ? Didn’t be warn ns that as we sowed we should reap ? that bloated, gloating canitol Is at tbe bottom of it all, and that the quickest way oat at present, or tho first step out, is by the countless hands of she rag-baby. “ Paper money I paper money I” that is his cry of redemption. And when, the other day, I beard a noted geologist declare that with his knowledge of the vast gold and silver mining districts spread over this country, yet undeveloped, I began to wonder whether, after all, paper might not be aa valuable a legal-ten der as this Go-called precious metal when it shall flood tbe country as in tbe days of the Arabian Nights. Sat apropos of this coming in of com, it is going to create A REVOLUTION IN PUBSI9. The flit pocketboot of Russia leather, or its scented sham, which* with its flat paper contents, baa fitted so nicely into onricoat pockets, will have to be laid aside if these jingling, balky treasures of half-dollars and quarters, to say nothing of the smaller, is to be once more “in our midst.” And so quickly has “trade” anticipated this revolution* that already in certain shops here the fat little cbamois-DOUch with a steel clasp is making its appearance, “for silver, you know,” the clerk glibly tells you; and the other day I actually found a young woman knitting or netting a little silk bag of brilliant colors, to be mounted with a silver or steel clasp. All these things are prophetic of the change that is coming to os, and the old fashions that shall return upon us. And, speaking of old fashions, 1 wonder if the Chicago girls have found out by any Centennial masqueradiugs bow very pretty and desirable a fashion is the incoming one of black lace mits. Though they were worn fifteen or twenty years ago it is true, yet their new birth just now is clearly a century reminiscence, for this winter’s balls and festivals b&ve brought them oat in fall force. Now a New York house .presents them as a summer style, and 1 have seen bow white a thing* if not divine a thing, a woman’s hand and arm can be mode through these open black meshes. Only a lew years ago I met the cele brated ÜBS. HABBZSON OBEX OTIS at a Boston party, and then, when everybody wore gloves, this wonderful old lady had toe wit and courage tocling toher black net mits. She had the most exquisite hand and arm, then at nearly, if not quite, 70, that I ever saw* and the contrast of the black net fixed them forever in my mem ory. A belle and beauty in her time, the wife of one of Boston’s distinguished men, and later in life herself distinguished by the activity dur ing the War with the South, in connection with THE RECKUITINO OF MASSACHUSETTS TBOOPS, Mrs. Otis has always been a prominent figure in Boston society. Many people remember her when she bad turned 50. still a very charming woman, crossing the Boston Common with a broad hat upon her handsome head* such as she might have worn in her twenties, and her slen der little feet cased in delicate slippers. Her eccentricities were those of a beautiful woman loth to give up her empire. Her beauty and grace served very late to cany off any of these eccentricities without much absurdity. As tho Bth of May draws near, the evening on which A2RTA DICKCtBON is to make her debut all sorts of stories and rumors are afloat. A small fortune has been spent upon her wardrobe, which is a close study from old authorities. This is one of the on dU ?. Another and more interesting is, that her play will go on to the stage absolutely as she has written it, the managers and critics rinding nothing superfluous for stage use to be cut out. If this is true, it is one of the most remarkable instances on record. Ana if true, it is also a good sign as to her own histrionic capabilities. Stage novices are expected always to be.fiJied with nervous fears.- £at in this particular like wise Miss Dickinson disappoints the rule. “NO, SHE 18 NOT AFRAID,” she says. There are plenty of croakers who ar gue from this, conceit and ignorance, but what ever else she may be, Anna Dickinson is scarcely conceited or ignorant, in any petty sense at least. And there is no reason why she should copy tbo traditions of timidity because it has been con sidered “ the thing ” with all successful actress es. Amongst the 'queer remarks one hears, one of the queerest was, that “ Miss Dickinson*has made & great mistake in not writing a play re calling the days of the Revolution. In this Cen tennial year it would have taken much better than that old English story.” As if we hadn’t had about enough of cen tury business, as a business. No, Anna knew better than to make herself a boro, not to say ridiculous, by trotting out all that Yankee Doodle masquerading that wo have done to death in fancy fairs, etc. She could not very well have represented all the women of the Revolution, unless she had built up a colossal allegory with the principal figure the Goddess of Liberty. And there is no one woman of that time whose story is M made to her hand,” a great and sombre record which shines down through the century a tragic reality of life and love which all the centuries will remember, as they remember . ANNA BOUSYN. No, thank Heaven, we have no such tragedy in our dost of a hundred years ; and Anna Dickin son was too wise to want to patch up any elab orate story out of our goodPnscillas and Martha 1 Washingtons. / But speaking of Centennial doings reminds me of the finest thing New England has done yet, and the finest thing that she probably can do. This is THB CENTURY VASE. which the celebrated firm of silversmiths, Gor ham & Co„ have manufactured for the Exposi tion. It stands a little over 4 feet in height, upon a slab of granite, and is one of the most exquisite pieces of workmanship in detail I ever saw. It is a very honest attempt, too, at carry ing out truth to nature in these details, and to epitomize America from its discovery to the present time. Thus at the base we get the typi cal red mao on his native soil. Anu bo looks what he probably was at that early date, a very good-looking child of the wilderness, uncorrupi ed by bad whisky and Government intentions. The working out of all onr vegetable and flower growths is very clover, aud one of the points of truth which is praiseworthy. Of course all the symbols are carried out, the Goddess of Liberty. 'lhe eagle and the stars of the States, and our gradual steps in progress, which has carried us from the red man to tbo locomotive, aud corresponding science and art. And .it is marvelously done. The soft skin of animals, the flesh of the savage and the settler, the droops and curve of flower, and tree, and vegetable, are wrought out as if in plastic wax instead of metal I felt a throb of pleasure as X stood regarding this piece of work, a throb of pleasure not uumixed with pride, that America could make such a flue show of her native industry aud progress at the World’s Fair. In the same room with this vase I saw some other productions from the manufactory of Gorham & Co., which made me hold my breath in a sort of holy horror at THE EXTRAVAGANCE OP AMERICAN WOKEN. Here wee a solid silver salver whose base was of Bach polished metal that it was a plate-gloss mirror to all observation. The price *3.000, and it was already bought by a Kew York lady, or, as the clerk corrected himself, •• by the husband of the lady at her desire.’* Beside the salver stood a ‘ slender Taao, —§I,ooo,—both the property of thia New York dame. TBBU THOUSAND DOLLABB 70S A WATIEB, AND ONE THOUSAND I’OB A VASE! It is an excellent thing, a desirable thing, for the arts and manufactures to flourish, but it is not an excellent thing nor a desirable thing for human folly to run not in this style. There is a story of an old empire long since deceased which ran riot m just this fashion, and the end thereof was nothingness. But I don’t suppose the* New York dame frets her immortal little soul about this. It is much' more likelr that borgUa Till bugbear. However/if vs ar* going to dovoloo eoob Aladdin traasarea la the way of silver-mine* u tbs goologtoil prophets foretell, tbs Hew York woman's treas ure won't be aneb groat things after all. In the meantime, In view of what is, we may well con sider that, in the way of personal show and glit ter at least, Adam’s mean little complaint, “A woman did tempt me," is not, after all, so far ont of the way as to the fad of the ease. Of tho poiiienesa of the complaint I hava noth ing to eay. N. P. METHODISM. THE QUADRENNIAL CONFERENCE. Baltdiobb, Md.-, May 6.—ln the Methodist Episcopal Conference to-day. Bishop Harris pre siding, a communication from the Bishops was read, expressive of tbeir pleasure and gratifica tion at the manner in which the fraternal mes sengers had been received by the General Con ference South. The paper was ordered pub lished, with the address of the Bishops. The Bev. J, L. Lanahanpresented a communi cation signed by certain ministers of this city, which was referred to the Committee on the Book Concern without being read. The committee appointed to prepare a suc cinct code of ecclesiastical jurisprudence and procedure, embracing general principles appli cable to church trials, submitted majority and minority reports. The hoar for receiving the fraternal messen gers from the British Wesleyan Conference hav ing arrived, the Rev. W. B. Pope, the Professor of Theology in Bodsbury College, Manchester, and the Bev. James Harrison Bigg, the Presi dent of the Westminster Training College, Lon don, were introduced, and the answer of the British Conference to the address of the Gener al Conference, held in Brooklyn in 1872, was presented and read. The answer is one of cor dial fraternal greeting and encouragement, suc cinctly reviewing the great work of the churob, its steady progress, and rapid increase in both hemispheres. Prof. Pope then addressed the Conference. Referring to the Centennial as common to the nation and Methodism in the United States, ho said: “You and we are alike generous and Christian enough to rejoice together in the groat event which a hundred years ago displayed the baud of Providence in making you an independ ent people. Great in yourselves, and strong in tho prophecy of larger greatness, we knew full well chat no act of independence make you in the deepest sense independent of England. We hold you by an indissoluble bond. Tho blood in your veins beats time to the pulsations of our hearts, and oars beats time to youra; but, after all, your Centennial is, as baa been foil? shown, a religious festival at the foot of the heavenly throne. You are bent on superadding to your national and civil rejoicing a great trib ute to Him who took np your national indepen dence into His counsel for the government of the world. May He accept your tribute, and sanctify your Centennial year to the increase of grace in yonr hearts, households, ministry, and common work.” Eev. Dr. Biggs followed in an interesting and able speech, after which the Conference ad journed. AFRICAN METHODISTS, Atlanta, May 6. —The General Conference of the African Methodist Church adopted a resolu tion of thanks to the managers of the Centen nial for recognizing the Sabbath. Besolntions of fraternal greeting were adopt ed, and fraternal messengers elected to the Methodist Church North, the Methodist Church South, the African Methodist Zion, Colored Methodist United Brethren of Christ, British Methodise Protestant, and Methodist True Wea loyana. A telegram of fraternity was seat to tha Balti more Conference, .RAILROADS. KEOKUK. IOWA CITY & MINNESOTA.
