He has «i wavered ami marked out marvelous profes ilons which now He on humanity like the holts Imon the planet Jupiter, or like the Milky \\ ay ,; r ,HS the heavens. One hv one have come the profession of tho law. which gathers up the rehi \L nnd absolute right; the profession of medl- Hnc. that studies the causes of life and death; iic irofesslon of moral sdenee, which studies (Inland futurity; the professhm of literature; which breaks out In a hundred details of poetry >m l arose, newspaper and hook, oratory ami nilloJophv;' the profession of art, which deals In forms from the foreshortening of a hand to llic construction of n cathedral, that carves In irorv or rears a pyramid. Hut do you not already perceive the Immense ncss of the task when you Inquire Into the hcorv of maul This task Is surpassed by only one other on earth,—that would he the Inquiry him the manifestations of God. Victor Cousin ays the greatest word In any language is the word God. True I deeply and beautifully true 1 for Into that word the whole universe betakes U=clf. Hut there Is one word that stands near hU name of the Creator. It Is the word-man. It is a shadow true In outline, though small and dim, of the Infinite. Into this word notions, anil tcmplcs, and homes, and things beautiful ami strange are gathered beyond all count. Would that we had now the opportunity to sur rey further this strange creature, nnd pause to contemplate Ids pleasures, his study, his wars, his vices, his errors, his follies; hut the task Is ♦ o o large. I leave with you the plan of the work; the work Itself Is beyond the hour or tho d 'ict us not close our study of this Impressive creature without havliigatleasteastourcyo upon HIB RELIGION. Behold an altar! llu bums incense upon It, and asks the rising smoko to carry his prayers to the Invisible. Could ho touch Cod with his band, or see Him with the eye, ho would not ask the smoke and the perfumes to be his medi ator. But God being a spirit, man asks the ele ments that can rise and lade from mortal sight to co In his stead and find Him whom his soul fcarelh or loveth. If you will read the history of religion, casting out here and there the crorrsthat thcehildhoodof man bus heapedupon It you will find at man's altar the beautiful phenomenon of his career. All else seems humble compared with the picture of this be ing bowing by the altar of God. And us no one minifies Hie twilight after day has come, as no cine feels anxious about the blossoms of the tree when already the peril of frost Is past and the branches bend with fruit, so after Christ came with his form of worship we were dis charged from the study of man ns seen la the groves of Apollo or Jupiter. Man and Christianity are the Impressive picture In this human spectacle. Into the sub lime theory of humanity slu came long ago as a disturbing force. It came ns a destroying angel, came as a tempest upon a serene sea. Man without sin would have had still a religion, but with sin religion becomes a sentiment full of al ternating fear and hope. Christianity Is the loving effort of the children to return to their Father. Viewed simply oh a phenomenon no spectacle can surpass that of man and his relig ion. The temples of his worship cover the rarth. Go where you will, and either the mas live cathedral fills you with wonder or else the little white church In the valley provokes your ivmpathctlc tears. For beauty and for finding Ine presence of God gives us the hitter, where the whispering trees dote to the window, and Uiu biros In the branches, and the sublime illcneo of the world without, and the ilmpllclty of the worshipers come to help the spirit In Its efforts to find the Invisi ble. In such apiece It Is easy to see that Jesus of Nazareth, wno mice passed over our world, testing here and there In humility, praying at times' beneath an olive tree. But to see the tmo picture of Christianity all the variations of Ibc external must be Included. The humblest tlmpel in the wilderness, where the poor meet, must be joined with the lolly minister, where Kings ami Queens have knelt. The child dressed In white for Its first communion must bo seen along with the crowned Louis and the living leveled Queen of England, currying their wor ihlp within their souls forever, Christ being dearer to cither than all the empires of earth. It will he necessary also to recall the sweet and solemn music that has grown up around the altar of God like roses to cmvrenth It. If, while thinking of this wonderful cnwrcathlng, you will recall that psalm, “Lord, Thou hast been our dwelling place In all generations,” and will imagine the harps of Judea handing over those words to the organ tones of this century, you will realize what n volume of sweet worship lias risen from man to God In the chariot of sacred tong. Fann this wide survey of man’s religion the heart will always come hack with Its devotion to some particular temple, modified, If not wholly destroyed, by the feeling that they are ill temples of only one Savior mid of one crea ture,—man. Be the loiters above the portal what they may, it Is the same creature at the iltur, man, and near him Is the One God. Hcllglonis one, Indivisible sentiment. As the mother’s love of the child Is one, be the mother American or English, or be she Calvinist or Methodist, ns these outer names sound far way from her maternal sentiment, so religion Bone and seamless, all woven throughout from lop to bottom, anil the name of the temple ex musts its Import far uway from the kneeling ioul and the pitying Lord. But this succession of conditions and quali ties, this childhood, this marriage, this pursuit, this religion, have led us far along and far away. They have led up to a thrilling spectacle hi the llstory of man. We have come now to 1113 OUAVB. If oilier phenomena in the history of man are Impressive, this tomb is most amazing, most solemn, most mysterious. This strangu being dies. All the powers of his mind, all the tender attachments ot Ids soul, all his wealth, all his arts and fame and prayer and piety cannot ro bin him among thu living. At last his frame s«ws; his hair whitens, his eye grows dim; hi: passes away. His body oncu so strong and beautiful is let down into thu earth, and thu day out of which Hod made him Is heaped over flic empty heart. For him no more tho blazing hearth shall bam, Or busy housewife ply her evening core; No children run to hep their sire's return, Ur climb his knees tuu envied kiss to share. Such is the outline of Unit being that came Wib when (lod said: "Let us make man.” fhe very study is all through a practical lesson. &m yet there cornu to mind three thoughts taking to bu uttered here: 1. Let us always keep in mlndthcgrcattbeory if man, and lit our actihua to that abstract es timate alone. Consider the sin, and ignorance, lud weakness, we here witness us only Inter mptluns of a great plan, as discords coming 'rom thu outside into thu great harmony. Our icurls must be fixed upon the quality of man kuod, which may bo found, nut In thu fallen In dividuals of earth, those blighted flowers, but »Mch is seen shadowed In the saints and heroes ' f all ages, chiefly shadowed forth lu Christ, '■'c must look only up. 2. Let us wholly exclude from our souls, ban- Wi by reflection, by sentiment, by hope, and by Bayer all idea that such u magnificent being as fcau bus come here by natural evolution, and hut no (Sod surrounds (dm. Let us place a lov mg Father and tiavlur close by bis cradle, his Vaults, his grave. 8. Let us allirm and hold precious the Idea (bat all these streams of human power and lovu tod life empty Into a world of immortality. L-t us believe that u being that leaves such a |r&Ju of glory buhlud Idm may also have a sub lime destiny; that thu splendor around him is [mt more possible or actual than the splendor of L h future: that where things so thrilling have U la feeble logic and feeble love that place to y limit to thu grandeur aud blessedness of <Uu beyond thu sepulchre. SECOND BAPTIST. INSTILLING TUB NBW I'UBACUBU. The Uuv. (ialusha Anderson, tho newly* &oicu pastor of the Second baptist Church, lorucr of West Monroe and Morgan streets, for tncrly presided over by Rev. the Dr. E. *T, (loot)* spend, yesterday morning preached his first ser mon before Mint congregation. Tim spacious edifice was (Hind, and the pulpit was tastefully decorated with blooming plants, vines, and bouquets. Tim great marble pulpit bas been removed and replaced by a neat wooden one, wlilcli looks somewhat lost In tbo vast space formerly occupied by the stone structure. The Rev. Clalusha Anderson Is a gentleman about 5 feet 10 inches high, well proportioned, and weighing probably I*o or 190 pounds. Ills inanner Is that of the must unostentatious gen* Unman, which Is bound to make him friend* among Ids Hock. Ills ago verges somewhere near the fifties. Ills hair is turning with the flight of time and has become nearly gray. Ills face Is covered with an tron-gray, rather shaggy beard, which gives Mr. Anderson a somewhat tmtrhiehhd appearance. His manner of speaK nig la alow, and he completes one subject be fore be starts on another,, and In this way holds the attention of his congregation. He is not a flighty orator, but, as an earnest, Christian worker, often grows eloquent In his discourse, and shows by Ids arguments that be bos thor oughly studied the subject upon which he preaches. Taken in all, Mr. Anderson la a worthy accession to our clerical fraternity, and will no doubt do good work for the Church with willed he has become associated. Ills sermon yesterday morning was from the First Epistle of I’uul to Timothy, third chanter, part of the mill verse—“ The Church of the Living Ood, the pillar and ground of the truth." The reverend gentleman licdd that. In spite of the commentators upon this simple text, the metaphor was drawn from the Greek and Ro man edlllees, which were placed on pillars set on stone foundations laid In deep trenches, which held the superstructures. Timothy understood these things, as lie was versed in Greek as well us Hebrew. His mother was a Jewess, and his father a Greek. He also hud preached lu Ephesus, a Grecian city. He dissected Truth, and what it meant ns re garded the churches, and claimed that the Roman Catholic Church had held that the Truths of God were only declared through It. and that It held the great secrets of God, and had the power given it to spread them to the world us they were demanded, and thus only a short lime ago it hud declared the Immaculate Conception, and at another time the Infallibility of tbe Pope, and bo on claiming to be the originator of tho Truth. He held that Truth existed long before tlio churches were built, and that the Trutli was only given to tho world through the medium of tho Christian Church. Protestants, too, in their ecu), had sometimes gone to the other extreme. He then claimed that obedience to God was tbe point from which tho Great Truth came. The Roman Catholic Church kept tho Rlbto from the people because lb was afraid to let Its worshippers interpret It for themselves. But the interpretations of the Bible by the Church were not always infallible. The knowledge of Ilible-truth was progression. Tlio statements and interpretations of one generation were modified oy another. They Interpreted God’s word by tbe light they possessed. After show ing the Inconsistency of tlio pretended Infalli bility of the Roman Catholic Church, he made a plea for the dlsscmmlnation of the Great Truth through the Church, and to have all work to save sinners, and to assist tlio pastor lu spread ing the Gospel everywhere. MISCELLANEOUS. ORDINATION. St. Louis, June 4.—An unusual event took place to-day nt St. John’s Catholic Church, the occasion being the ordination of seventeen priests, ten of whom were students who left Germany because they would not submit to BlsmareK’s policy towards the Catholic Church. The ceremonies were very Imposing, and were conducted by the Uiglit Kev. Bishop Ryan, as sisted by several prominent clergymen of this Diocese. PASTORAL. Sptclal Dispatch to Tin Tribvnt. Indianapolis, June 4.—Dr. J. L. Withrow, pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church, an nounced to his congregation to-night the fact that he had been askud to accept the pulpit of Park Street Congregational Church, Boston, but said he hud not muue up bis mind in the matter. AMUSEMENTS. THE AVOLESOIIN RECEPTION. Last Saturday afternoon, at Standard Hall, Mr. Curl Wolfsohn gave a reception to the pupils of the Chicago Musical College,—Mr. Florence Zlcgfcld, President, and Mr. Louis Falk, Director, —which was tendered aa a com pliment In return for a similar one given him by the College some months ago. Mr. Wolfsohn hud the assistance of Airs. O. K. Johnson, Messrs. Lewis, Elchhchn, and GUI, and four of his pupils. Of the Rubinstein sonata, by Messrs. Wolfsohn and Elchhclm, the Beethoven trio in B-flal major, op. 07, and of Mbs Johnson’s singing of Schubert’s “Nounc” and the Chopin songs, ns well as of Mr. GUl’s singing of Esser’s “Southerner's Nocturne,” wo have already spoken In detail on previous occasions. The only features worthy of special mention were the piano performances by the pupils of Mr. Wolfsohn, all of whom acquitted themselves In a very creditable manner, reflecting great credit upon thdr Instructor. The pupils were Miss Hannah Grccnebuum, Miss Emily Hart, Miss Fannie Blumeufehl, and Mr. Stumpofsky. The performance of each of thopuplls had some feature to distinguish it by. Thu most novel ami Interesting performance was that of little Fannie Dlumoufeld, aged but 13 years, who played Beethoven’s “ Son ata Palhetlque ” In a wonderful wuv. Not only hertcchnlquewossatlsfuetorybut the phrasing and coloring given to tbu plying. Miss Grccucbaum played Liszt's transccptlon of the beautiful uml aillkult “ Llebcslied” of Schu mann. llcr playing was noticeable more for its warmth ami expression and beautiful coloring than for brilliancy of execution. Mr. Stamnosky played the Barglcl “ Fantaslc-stueck” and dis played an excellent touch and thorough under standing of the subject. But fur brilliant exe cution and artistic finish of playing the palm must ho awarded to Miss Hart who played Liszt’s arrangement of the “ March ludlennu ” from “ L’Afrlcftluo ” in a manner that left lit tle to ue desired. Tbu audience was one of the largest and most attentive that has filled Standard Hull for some time, ami was composed largely of the pupils of the Musical College. How She Got Dorn Pedro’s Autograph, A good story Is told how an “ autograph lady ” of Ban Francisco obtained the signature of Dom Pedro. While the Emperor was at the Palace Hotel In that dty, she repaired thither, ascertained which were the Brazilian apart ments, and presented herself to His Majesty's Secretary, slating her desire. "It will bo necessary for tho lady to reduce her request to writing,” said tho Secretary. And site quickly wrote tho following note: u Will the Emperor of Brazil have the kind ness to give Ids autograph to an American lady —one who admires tho quiet dignity of a great monarch in our dear Uepubllcl” Thu Secretary took thu nolo and disappeared. But thu lady was astonished when he presently returned and announced "His Majesty, the Em peror of Brazil.” Thu sequel is thus related by a California newspaper: “His Majesty turned upon hcrafino pair of natural Brazilian pebbles and bowed. Thu lady bowed.

Philadelphia, June I.— One of the most at tractive things I know of on the grounds is something that a great many people will not scu at all. In a sort of tent near Horticultural Hail there Is an exhibition of rhododendrons In full bloom, and tbe bloom Is the very fullest that can bo seen anywhere. It would be a tedious matter to describe all the varieties of rhododen drons on exhibition, andillssuinclcntlo say that the flowers arc of nearly nil colors and shades of colors, from white and delicate plnkntid purple up to the deepest and darkest red. The bushes arc a mass of flowers, and look like a collection .of bouquets rather than like growing plants. They remind one of the rhododendrons that one sees in our mountain regions, with the difference that they are larger than those ordi narily observed in the open air. Such a mass of rich color is rarely seen anywhere; the exhibit in Horticultural Hall cannot rival it in this re spect, and it would be dlflieult to find a green house In the whole’ country that could do so. The collection is an English one; it comes from the Knap Hill Nursery of Mr. Anthony Wutcrcr, Woking, Surrey, Eng., and Is prononneed by horticulturists the finest ever seen in America. There is another show of rhadodendrons in the Open air, on another side of Horticultural Hall, belonging to the Centennial Commission. They were presented by the establishment of James Vcltcb & Suns, of Chelsea, London, and would be considered excellent if they were nut cast in the shade by the very large exhibit of Mr. Watcrcr. Many persons who have heard of the rhodo dendrons in the tent have gone in that direc tion, and mistaken the smaller one for the larger. They go away satisfied, and think they have had a line treat. And so they have, hut there Is a still finer one, which would coat them nothing If they would only go a little farther, and use their eyes for a quarter of an hour. A RUN AMONG g URNITURR. The American exhibitors of furniture arc not very numerous, but some of tliclr displays arc quite good and worthy of much attention. The exhibits are in the Main Building, near the south end, uml arc clustered all together hi a wav that makes mnnv of them appear rather crowded for want of room. They are not near as numerous as were the same sort of displays at Vienna, and are not nearly us good. A noticeable thing among them Is the tendency to strong colors, and some of the contrasts arc so glaring as to bo disagreeable. The best of them is from New \ork, and bears the name of L. Manotle & Co. Portions of two rooms arc shown, the most attractive of them being In the style of Louis Xlll., floor, celling, furniture, and all. There Is a fine clilmncy-plccc of carved walnut, with a bonier of majollca-waro Immediately around the fire place, making a very pretty contrast with the dark color of the wood. The wainscot Is of the same material os the chimney-piece; above It a tapestry in subdued colors hangs from the ccllng. The ceiling Is of painted canvas, which Is becoming quite a feature In this country of late years, as it has all the colors of fresco, and can he changed or repaired with much greater case. The chairs are covered with tapestry like that on the walls, ami the carpet la in keening with the general quietness of the rest of the room. The chairs, and all other work except tlm tapestry, are made In this country; the designs fur the tapestry are made hero, but the work Is per formed In France. The furniture of the other room Is of ebony, the most attractive piece be ing a fine cabinet; the hangings of this room are In painted leather after the old Italian style, out somewhat less showy In color. Close by this room is a bed room containing a set of blrdsoye-nmplo furni ture, with blue trimmings, u combination of colors quite In harmony If the blue were not so Intensely strong. The celling also has the blue quite prominent, and altogether the simile did nut please me. But, I should add, in jus tice to the designer, that blue Is nut my fa vorite color, and that anything containing it docs not strike my eye favorably. SEVERAL BETS OF I’Altl.OU AND DEDUOOM FUI aro scattered around liere. Nearly all the makers are from New York or Philadelphia; I saw no exhibits front the West, and only one or two from Now England. I don’t think the American house-furnishers have much to boost of In the decorative line, and certainly they are trcutly behind the English and French makers, tfew York seems to be further advanced in the art than Philadelphia, but no enough to swear by. The favorite wood in Philadelphia seems to be maple, while New York Inclines to walnut and oilier dark woods, including ebony, the darkest of them all. A leading New York house has a set of parlqr-furniturc that would bo very pretty if the color were not so glaring; and there Is a bedroom-suit from this city most admirably made, but trimmed with cretonne In which there Is too much preponderance of white. Walls and plafond are covered with tho same cretonne in panels; the effect is pretty at first glance, but I fear that one might become weary of it after a while. A New York house, Khnbel & Cabin. has a very pretty show with » floor inlaid with light colors and the celling fres coed. For u part of the way down from the celling, there are figure-paintings on leather, and the rest of the way mid the wainscot Is hung with maroon silk. Maroon Is the prevail ing color of the room, and, ns every artist knows, it is the best fur displaying pictures. The furniture is of ebony, with maroon trim mings. SOFA AND rOLDINOO EDS. There is qultu an assortment of articles of furniture that meet the demands of those who sleep in thu room they occupy during thu day, ami are somewhat crumped for space. They ail look very well, ami somu of them conceal their conchy character so that you would hardly suspect it. One has the appearance of a ward robe, another resembles a cupboard, auotber a bookcase, and another has a writing-desk at tached to it. The must Ingenious bed of thu kind I ever ’saw was In New York a year or two ago; it may bo on exhibition here, but I have not seen It. Tbe front of it was a wardrobe about 4 or 5 inches deep; by pulling a couple of bolts, you could swing the wardrobe to onu side, and there stood revealed n complete bed, which you had only to pull down to a horizontal posi tion, and find it ready for occupation, provided tho chambermaid bud douo her duty. Thu manufacturer said that it gave you thu advantage, by putting the wardrobe so near, of enabling you to dress without getting up. You could also. I presume, undress without going to bed. miring thu War. an enterprising genius Invented a trunk fur tuu uso of army-ulilcers, which could be used as a trunk, a table, u writing-desk, and a bed,—the latter with a mosquito net fur protec tion In tho swamps of the South-west. Onu of tho oUlcers who bought a trunk of this kind, said that you bad omy to attach wheels to it to convert it Into an artillery-curl, a trauaport-wug ou, or a gunboat. The omy drawback I know to the folding and sofa bed is, that I never heard tho owner or «mu of them advise a frluud to buy tho same kind. Ho always suggested somu other make, and could show whero the onu ho had bought was defective. Thu best and prettiest of tlioso ex hibited hero has tho weight of tho bed balanced by a spring, so that a 10-year-old child can rufsu or luwer it with easo. It Is a great improvement over tho bed 1 remem ber lu my college days, which swung on u hinge, and required a strong arm to rolso it. But It was cheap; thu onu X occupied couldn’t huvo cost over |5, while theso modern Improvements aro sold at prices varying from |SO to three times that amount. INDIUBCTLY AHTIQUB. A Philadelphia maker exhibits a set of bed* room furniture made from the wood of an old maple tree which had stood in independence Square over 200 years years. It was cut down recently, and this party bought tho wood at auction, with an eye to business. The act looks very well; and lying on the bureau la a highly polished section of the wood, showing tho sire of the tree. Not far from this exhibit there is a lot of willow and split-wood furniture from a factory somewhere In tlic Eastern Slates. This willow furniture l« cheap, pretty, and durable; and nothin','nm he letter for the slUlniproMin of a summer rottuiru or any similar plan; win l re lli'litnr;-1 and u suinrestion of coolness are desired. Willow has many uses In the OM World quite unknown to us on this side of the Atlantic, anil It Is a wonder rome of our thrifty Dutch and Herman settlers have not In troduced it more widely limn has been done thus far. Thu exhibit I have Just mentioned shows that a jjood move lias hcen made In t tic rfahl direction, and there I# no reason why it should not continue. There an? some exhibits of bent wood furniture, such os I have already described in the Austrian section; ami since I wrote that letter, I have seen some excellent specimens of the same work in the Massachusetts Btate U ...Mini'. , Homebody from New York exhibit* what ho (•nils nn adjustable table, ami lie Im* several kind* of them, *o its to meet almost any want. The novelty consist* In the lei's, which are made to fold up fn much the way that u Turk lakes bis nether extremities under him when he efts d _..wn. There is qiiltcavarietyof foldingchairs In wood, rattan, willow, oak, ami oilier things, some quite plain, and others trimmed with reps or other textile fabrics; ami there Is a show of furniture made of the perforated wood which Is latterly coming into use' In the cities. Several street-railways In New York have adopted It for car-seals, and It Is a great improvement over the cushion-, which barlior diseases, vermin, and other objectionable things. The wood Is sawed thin, oiled, polished, perforated, and Is said to he durable. The managers of the car-lines say It is Just what they want,—their great desire being to have something upon widen they can turn a stream of water from a hose, and give tins vehicle a thorough washing. There i» con siderable more furniture lying around In the same region, but 1 didn't nave time to exam ine it. 01,1) ANTIQUITIES. A sharp-nosed feminine, looking at the papy rus ami other ancient things In the Egyptian Department, u few days ago, asked a bystander with great earnestness, •’ lie them antiquities nidi” Had she gone Into the annex devoted to geological exhibits, she would have seen some antiquities that would have met her views completely. There were several eases lillcd with articles taken from tho structures attributed to that extinct race known as tho Mound-Builders. Who or what they were, we do not know. We have no means of living the date at which they lived, with any degree of exactness, but I be lieve some of the savatis who have studied (he matter, and explored the mounds, say that 2,(K» years must have passed since they declined and disappeared. The Indians knew nothing about them, mid had no traditions concerning them; and the skeletons that have been found do not show that they belonged to the same race as our noble sitvngc. They had mure knowledge uf architecture than was possessed by the Indians when America was discovered, and some of their mounds show that they understood the points of compass, mid could layout the lines of a fort with considerable engineering skill. Who will lift the veil of mystery that surrounds them I The specimens in the annex I have mentioned consist of stone and copper implements ofwarl oua kinds, many of them fashioned with skill and taste, hut with rarely uuy attempt at orna mentation. Iron appears to have been unknown to them, and probably the copper was obtained from masses of native ore, such as we llud to dnv In the mines of the Lake Superior district. Tllcre Is quite a collection of pottery, and, on examination of It to-day, I was forcibly struck by Its resemblance to the collection which Dr. Bdillemaun obtained by digging on the site of ANCIENT TIIOY, and which I had the pleasure of examining at Athens Utile more Umn two years ago. The pots and jars, particularly the hitter, are almost Identical In shape with Uipse which Dr. fcjelille maim showed mo as coming from the Troad. There Is the same attempt at the Imitation of human and animal forms, and the same broad, heavy llgure, with an opening In the tup of the bead to form the mouth of the Jar. Tlie Trojan and American antiquities have a Aionderful sim ilarity in the attempt at imitating the shape of animals as well as of man, and the result Is about the same,—a rude and grotesque figure being the result. Dr. Sebliemann said that the remains of which 1 have spoken dated from a period anterior to the founding of Troy,—that city having been built on the site of a former one. The specimens were taken from excava tions 20, JJO, and In some vases 00 feet deep,— considerably below* the foundations of the Palace of King Priam, which he claims to have distinct ly t roved. These remains, like those of our Mound-Builders, were pre-hlsturlc; and It may not he Impossible that tins two people were con temporaneous, and that the hanks of the Ohio and the Seumunder were simultaneously the lo calities In which two brandies of the human race were making similar progress toward the pointiun of the great problem of social exis tence. IK TUB COLLECTIONS THOM OUU WKSTBItN STATES, and particularly from Ohio, there arc tools and Implements of stone, hint, and copper, mid also several utensils for cooking mid oilier purposes. There is n copper kettle with a lid, ami both kettle and lid are well made; and the same may lie said of some articles in clay. There are some knives of flint, and also some of copper; and there arc several ornaments of stone, sup posed to hUve been worn about the neck. The collection has nut been well arranged, ns several articles evidently of Indian origin arc mingled with the relics from tho undent mounds. Prominent among these things are some pipes of red sandstone, such ns are used among the Indians at the present time,—some with llirure onmmenU upon them, but the majority quite plain. It Is a pity that more care was not taken in arranging these things, so that the pre historic should have been apart from the modern. But, even with Its faults, the collec tion Is of great Interest, and would attract much attention if mure prominently placed. T. W. K. FRUIT AND VKGETAIJI/ES. I’EIUOOS FOll SPECIAL DISPLAYS.

AN EXPOSITION CONCERT. Special Dlipalch to Tfii Tribune, Puiladslpuu, Judo 4.— Thu chief feature of Saturday at the Centennial was a vocal ami hi strumuutal concert, given lu thu great ventral pavilion of tho Main Exposition Building, under the auspices of tho Ethomacker Plano Company of Philadelphia. The superb grand piano made hy the Scliomiv ker Company for Dom I’cdro 11. of Brazil was used, Mr. BiiiKa being the artist. He was agisted by Mr.«. Heed and Mr. St.Kldard, two accomplished vocalists. The rich, powerful tones of the Instrument held the attention and the ml* miration of a very large number of auditor?, In cluding many critical Kuropcans; and the ap plause after each selection showed how fervent was the appreciation by everybody of American piano-making art. An exhibition of the enpd bilitiCH of the*.* famous pianos was also given to an enthusiastic assembly In the forenoon, Hose Il'Krlna playing upon one of them and hinging a series of airs from the prominent compositions of several nations. CINCINNATI MUSICAL FESTIVAL. The Third and hint Concert f'lnrlnnutl .hinf.t. . The Union Musical Festival mine to ft close with the third concert last night. All the singing of the chorus did not occupy twenty minutes, the only chorus numbers of the pro gramme being the fimtasle In C. In opus W, by Beethoven, and the cantata, composed for the occasion by Mr. Singer. The remainder of the programme consisted of one orchestral imtnlmr and vocal solos. The orchestra during the evening, beginning with the Uungarial Rhapso dy, No. 3, did the best work of the Fed'.val, play ing with much hotter precision than during the performance of the “ Messiah” on the pre vious evening, when a lack of full rehearsals told sadly on nearly all the solo num bers. Mr. Mklmcl Brand conducted all the programme, with the exception of the cantata. Mrs. Smith substituted Vratbu a'/imun fiW, by Ougllelml, for the Swiss song an nounced on the programme, and Mr. Carl Schott, of the Cincinnati Orchestra, played the obligato, usually given on the Uute, on the clarionet. With this song Mrs. Smith Initiated the sob) successes of the evening; a noisy demand for u repetition was made, hut Mrs. Smith for very good reasons declined the tempting Invitation. In the Beethoven Kanlasle Mr. Singer played the piano solo, and he played It with correct ness and rare taste and judgment. The chorus, 100, with an ea»v task before It, sang the de lightful music sweetly and correctly to the words of Longfellow's “Song of Life.” The adaptation of these words to the music of the fanlasle was nothing short of a mon strous absurdity, and occasioned a double back-action disaster. The words, beautiful, elevated, and ennobling in themselves, were eimplv prostituted by the music, and the music was similarly treated by the words. If lines of the same meter was all that was asked, the old schoolboy's song. “ Cocnche lunk,” would have done quite as well, and cer tainly been less uvlolntiuuuf the rulesof musical truth. But the mesalliance between the senti ments of the song and the music was no loss In artistic than the expression given some words; “labor” towards the close, for instance, in which a tremulous emphasis Is thrown upon the second syllable of the word, in defiance of all rules of orthoepy and poetry. However, the chorus, piano, and orchestra tripped a merry funeral march to the music which Beethoven wrote to celebrate Joy, peace, beauty, and all the other bright, cheerful, sunlit tones, which unite to form the perfect chord of life’s harmony, and the hapnv, charming conceit of the muster was received with applause. in the second part. Mr. Bischoff did the beet singing during the I- estival, by a strongly dra matic and powerful interpretation of Schubert's “Erl-Klng/' with orchestral accompaniment, ar ranged by Mr. Bergman, of New York. He met with a generous reception. Miss Urasdll then sang Beethoven’s In qucaUi toml* i, and with ll created u furore equal to that of the previous night. In vain diu she how to the audience ami chorus, they were Intent on hearing more on this last opportunity, and finally she returnedto the stage and gave for an encore piece a deeply pathetic Bohemian song, playing the accompani ment herself on the piano. Mr. Whitney introduced a novelty in the scene from Kaiideggcr’s “FridoUn,” which he sang. He, ton, was''’compelled to deny u clamorous demand fur an encore piece. When Mr. Singer appeared upon the stage to conduct ids cantata, the closing scones of last year’s festival were re-enacted, a shower of bou quets, thrown by the chorus singers, fell around him upon the stage, and cheers and huzzas went up from his manv enthusiastic friends in the au dience. The singing of the chorus and playing of the orchestra culminated In this cantata, just as the successes of hist year did in the perform ance under Mr. Singer’s baton of Liszt’s “ Pro metheus.” More volume and better precision limn Ims been shown in any of the other works marked the performance of this, and when Mr. Singer joined in the applause which greeted the performance, in compliment to the singers for ihelr good work, he did so with the conscious ness that his work hud been given a worthy in terpretation on Us first hearing. It did not cre ate a furore, mid Is not likely to do so in the future, for its style la foreign to the under standing and tosU‘B of our public. CVncinmid OrnmncUit, Jutit 3. The excellent performance of Mr. Singer’s cantata constituted the worthy close of thin con cert. Singers and orchestra entered Into Its reu diikm with the enthusiasm which the high es teem in which their worthy director Is held could not but create. The cantata abounds In beautiful and original passages, to enumerate which would lead too lar. The phrase, “Nut as the flying come," deserves to bo specially noticed on account of the remarkable effect produced by the sopranos, altos, and tenors. The Tuttl repetition of the hymn In medieval style (the subject consists of a most happy lengthening of Hie theme which is Hie founda tion of the whole cantata) over an organ point, gives evidence of extraordinary ease In the use of effective luirmonlcs. The Dual chorus, “Aye, Call It Holv Ground, 11 Is very brilliant and ex pressive. As might he expected, not only from the personal favor In which the composer Is held, hut also on account of the Intrinsic merit of the was most enthusiastically received, as was Mr. Singer on his appearance at the lead er’s desk. ME. KNOTT’S INVENTION. How 110 Prevented Sen-Sickness. JVilluiltlphia IlulUUn. Mr. Knott was about to sail lor Europe. He informed Ids friends that sea-sickness had no terrors for him. lie said lie had an Infallible preventive of that malady. He bought It of un old sailor, who had been to sea for lurty years, and had never been sick an hour. And Knoll said that, when the steamer got out un the ocean, all he had to do was to swal low a couple of these powders, and then the winds might howl and the billows roll, for no ocean that was ever built could turn his stomach. On the day he started, he enjoyed himself a great deal, talking with his friends while sailing down the imy; and as soon us the shin gut out un the open sea, and began to roll, be took u dose of preventive. Presently he began to look solemn, and then be took another. After a lilt, he said Ids corns hurt him, uml he thought he would lie down on the sofa. Then a sickly look overspread his face, uml the steward asked him if anything was the matter. Knott said that tic thought that coffee they had for breakfast must have disagreed with him. Then he suddenly jumped up, and flew to the deck. The Captain directed his attention to tlm beautiful sun set, but Knott seemed to prefer to hung over the side of the shin, with his face toward the water. Then the Captaip asked him if he was sick, and he said no; lie was only trying to see if they were yet lu IheCiulf Stream. Then his frame convulsed, and ho began to gel rid of Ids gastric juice, lie seemed to be trying to bring up a breakfast that he ate during the Scmlnulu war. After working down pretty well toward it, ho asked them to carry him to his state-room, where lie gave the steward a hot containing the old sailor's Infallible preventive of sea-sickness, and remarked that, if the stew ard would chuck that awful truck Into the bosom of the mighty deep, ho would confer u favor upon Mr. Knott. Then Knott rolled over in his berth, with pallor lu his face,' aud said to Ids companion: “Bill, don't old what’s-hls-mimo Huxley say In one of his books that the Atlantic Ocean Is gradually filling up, bo’s It’ll bo dry laud some “ I bellevo he docs.” “ Well. Hill, when I get to Europe I’m golnj to stav there until thu enssed thing fills, am then I’m going to drive over home lu a buggy No more navigation for me, if you please.'* Then he called for the steward, and thu con versatlun ended.
