Official Completion of tlio Work; the Closing Stouc. A Par Of Jubilee—Excursion of Citi zens Through the Tunnel—The Con nection Made between the Two Sections of the TYorh. on the Crib—Speeches by* JT. G, Glndele, E«q. t mayor Bice, Aldermen Holden and Clark) D. D. Driscoll* Esq., and K, S« Cheabroughf Esq, / Tbe great Lake Tunnel, the achievement of Chi jeago, the glory of the nineteenth ccninry, the PJ/ , ™ America, the wonder of the world, waa officially finished yesterday. Kot that it was really finished. The public well know that official declarations do not always square with facts. The tunnel was not finisW v but declared to be so: tbe time when the people/ will be able to avail themselves of it depend* largely on the action of the Board of Pnhw Works. That body expresses itself in favor of giving pure water to tbe people of Chicago at the earliest prvdent moment. Letz be thankful. In order to a proper comprehension of the sub ject. we will begin where alt Intelligent historians commence—with the creation. At the beginning, water was recognized as a prime necessity. It was made «:)•: in the order of mundane things. Adam and Eve had four rivers appointed for their convenience In Paradise. These are sup posed to have famished pare water. As early as the time of the great flood it was dis covered that n/rfgce water was exceedingly fnjn rious. Ihcnseof it killed off a great many peo ple ; tt was the first decided ins Of wholesale damage from the use of hydropalhic remedies. ,h v ? eo P le of were terri bly troubled about their river water. It furnished them wan a" sorts 6t edibles such as the Chicago River has since done to tbe people of this region —the principle staple being fish. The children of Israel wanted water In the wil derness, and rebelled in its absence. It was finally obtained by means of a strike—made by the Board of Public Works of that date (one Moses) on behalf of the people. At subsequent periods the people of various cities bavc been troubled about water privileges, aud have expended vast stuns of money in secur ing them. Rivers have always been a source of trouble. The btyx plagued the ancient Greeks, the Nile was a Iremmdons impediment in (be way of tbe Jews, the Rubicon bothered Czesar. lh« Thames baa (coaiti me Londoners, and the Chicago River Las infinitely disgusted us. "It Is a lo’jglane that has never a tom,” lays the old proven), and we have now a long lane under Ibe waters of Lake Michigan about iwo miles in extent, of tiresome straightness. It only varies an inch trom the dljccl line. It is so uni form that it has become a bare. Some three hun dred of the P. F.s of Chicago went through it yes terday and foniid it eo; it pore very hard on taem before they got through. It felt out In this wise: A good many years ago the people of this dty became dissatisfied with the water which the hjdiautsystem famished them at eight dollars per year per man. They were dissatisfied because li Interfered with the legitimate pursuits ofagooJ many of the citizens who were In the habit of gaining a living on the breakwater. There was too much fish and too little water; they wanted a remedy; one was decided on. And eo the boloue of the city decided on a change. But what to do foe the best they did not know. One sapient individual proposed to bring water from Winetka, sixteen miles away; another wanted to construct a huge tunnel on the bed of t&e lake, some one and a half miles out ftom shore; still another wanted to biuld a sys tem oi strain-rv. All, however, paled before the hold conception ot the Cbiel Engineer of our city, £. S. Cbcs hrougb, Esq. He, at the end ol a lengthened period, put afull stop to the discussions by pro* posing to actualize the old about the bowels <•1 the earth, only that being so near the surface it was more likely to be calleda vein,by those who might feel inclined to indulge in a rein of irony. But the werk is a genuine bowel; it Is, in fact, a colon, having been wade la two sections; it has electrified the world into an exclamation point. 'that colon has been finished. From a O'dQl on the lake shore, at the foot of Chicago avenue, a sbait pierces the earth to a depth of some eighty leet. the first spadeful of earth was taken out on Pt. Patrick's Hay, ISGJ, by Mayor Sherman, who “tacJJiaied” the business oy picking ou t tnc soft cat snot. He was a«slsted in the undertaking by Messrs. Gicdele, l.etz and Hose, of the Board of I’nhllc Works. The other saints smiled on the undertaking, and the subsequent shovelfuls of earth came out indue order. Arrived at the bot tom the workmen struck out in a direction almost due cast, boring a hole in the day of about six fect and a half diameter, which they subsequently reduced to about five feet ny putting eight inches oi bricks all around, laid in cement, ! Soon after this was begun, a quantity of lum ber was stacked up on the No'tu Pier, and a num ber of workmen commenced to put it iwo shape, ihey piled one logon another till a huge struc ture finally loomed up over the scene, some forty ftct high, and about ninety /cotin diameter, hav ing five tides and ca-ed with Iron. June, I'd, the monster was launched into the lake, and towed out two miles, where it was sunk, and filled with stones to keep it steady. Then a number of men began to bore down inside it, nor c-ased 111! they had reached a depth of slxiy-four fect. when they, too, struck out wilh their monster anger of success, and bored toward the shore. For many weeks ana months the two sets of workers giopcd along in the darkness, the only light sup plied being a flickering glare cast by a kerosene .amp. They toiled along, having nothing for their reward but four dollars a day aud the chteriugs of a good coneclcure, till at 'ast ibeir labors : were rewatded by n clinimerot other light than I that supplied hv kerosene. An anger hole bored • from ore side found a vent on the other, and two J weeks ago tn-day the cheers ol the workmen re som ded through the hollowness ot the archway, j Idling to one urotbcrtliat they hadmcL Only a narrow strip of earth divided the two armies, j rammer than that which often divides the sin ner trom bis mt-rired doom. The thirteen Inches of ciav wall was subsequently broken down sur reptitiously, snd the continuity ol the two sec tions was made complete. A few days longer, ami the gnat public was madca-vare that the tumid was virtually finished, in an invitation to Hum to he present at the tormal opening yes lC ", iouu, inursuay, mu uug no r< member* d hs a dar on which xnauv peo ple were dtnd-heflded on a long ride, wno never irw the pleasure ot a free excursion b-lore. There were about three hundred invtta duns issued, the lirt of invitees Incladiug the N.ajor of the city, the present Common Council, aud that which was In cxi-tcnce at the time tho • ucuc! naf oidereu. the Board of Education, the Judges of the Courts, a lew distinguished citizens ind a number of undL-tiogubued ones, whose only interest in tfa** ceremony was that they hoped to tnjov ti e blessing of a pure water supply ere long. Besides those invited, a great many were present who baa no invitatiou save the Impnlsc of their own curiosity. TOE Ar.UANCVMESTB. It 1? One to the Board of Public Work*, and their efficient Secretary, ,\. W. iinUham, Esq., lo ray that the arrangements for th>* occasion were peifcc.—the only fault being Inal they were not accurately carried oir. The cards of Invitation were div fled into four sets, as follows: No. to go down the land shaft at 10 a. m. No. 2, to go out to the crib at 10 a. m. No. 3, to go down the land shaft at li<4 a. m. No. -1, to go out on the tug at Urt a. m. The intention was to take out the first named paity through the tunnel on a “special train.*' * m.d l»nd them at the crib; then to take the sccon I v.»rty westward through the tunnel; then to take tin- third party eastward through the tunnel, and ■lie f< urtb par y westwaid last of all. 1 he ticket? were so distributed as (bat the first ■ paiiy should include ait those who were directed to be present at the formal joining of the two sec lions of the tunnel, viz: the Mayor, the Board of Public Works, ami one or l-volnvpcd guests, with the present Board ol Aldermen. Tbe thin! party Included the .Judges of the Courts, the Board of I dncitum. ,tr. 'those whose presence was not rci-ilni at I- claying ot the joining stone, but was deemed deMiable cm the crib at certain celebrant exuclfcs. while the second and further parties nere comprised ot thosn who had not such an cs pec.al interest: they were intended to be seat thioiigh the tunnel from tbe oast wi houl refer ence to the ceremontcu cither In tbe tunnel or on the crib. TOE EXCCRSIOX. Long before the lim 1 stated, the ground where on stiitrt? lie M ati-r Work-, and the dock at 'he south ciid of !*tau*otrcct bridge, w«.re crowded to tbeir um»?t by anxious crowds. At the former ‘•ta ioi.

At 1- o'clock the Cist party, consisting of ths Mayor, the three of the Board ot Pithily Wotke, Canal CuniniiisJorcr Colonel K. B. Ms r-ou. and one or (wo Aldermen descended the ?hatL At tbe bottom they were unloaded and took the advance in tbe train of six rar- which was lu wuiiing. The platform rose and came down twice i_»<iic. bringingeaca time ah mt eight, eouMstitg of Aldermen and representatives oftlio Tkidl'ne end Timti. At precisely twentv mtn w« past ten, the first train moved eastward along •he intmcl. It was a cunons journey, an uninviting one, the trip along tbe tunnel. Thu short trail) at six cars, drawn hr one male and pushed ochind by two tnU). was loaded wita three excursionists to each car. a few of whom core a dickering lamp, which only served to make the darkn-as more hideous. TLcjumney was performed In silence, the party pa-smgihe time in examining the Joints in the brickwork, anti noting me figures which were i allied in b'-ack on the face ot the work at inter vals ol five feel, denoting the distance from the *:artli.gpolut at the shore shall. Nor was the po -itton the most favoiahle one fur ob-ervatio’t. Ihe party were obliged to lean forward to avoid bringing their bead* In contact with the arch above, and those who hid come adorned with silk hats foned the bricks peculiarly nhnoxicna. Ibenagata it was noticel, or rather Mt. that tall men were at a disadvantage. A d-'ait would have been juoiUi.t, if the dwarfago were not confined to the intellect. The bulk of the observations, indeed, consisted of pathetic admonitions to “ksvp your bead? down," and •* lean lorward.” Wim these were mingled tho very original remaik* that •• this i* a great bore;’* •• wc are on the underground railroad,* Ac., £c. fney wen*amusing enough, bur, strange to nay, were more highly appreciated by the ntterers than the listeners. No wonder the jokes lelldaUy;lt must be contcfsed *bnl they were very low. The car? stopped, and the order was given to dismount. Marked on the southern side of the brickwork were the figures “ RiTT." that being tbe number of feet distant from the land shaft. Uu d-*r the figures waa a hole, about a foot in length, and some six laches wide. A heap ot cement lay ccar, and two or three workmen were •• ready lo assist” when called upon, fhe grouping was simple, and rapidly efiected. On the east side of the hole stood Mr Kroescbell, the City Inspec tor, whose duty It baa been to watch the work trom the alpha to tbe omega; Mr. G. it. bramhall, the gentleman who superintended the building of tbe crib, the putting it In position, the sinking of the lake shal, and the work of ex cavation from that end, on tho part ol the con tractors, and Mr. Everia who, in his official ca pacity, superintended the laying of tbe la-t brick. Or. the other side were grouped the Mayor, Hon. .1. B. Rice. Colonel IL B Mason, and Messrs. Gindvle, l£tz and Rose, of the Board of Public Works. Behind them were grouped the Alder manic occupants of *he first train. XATTSC TOE PTOHB. The ceremonies attendant on laving the stone which was to fill np the last gap In the work, were very simple, and the chronicle of them will be brief. Hr. Kroes chell, City Inspector, broke the silence by saying: “Mr. Mayor and Members of the. Co mmon Connell—You bare arrived at the spot where the two ends of the work arc to be closed np. It only remains for the Mavor to place tbc last stone In Us proper position In toe work, aud we arc go ing to help him to do it.” Mayor Rice leaning forward toward the yet par tially emptied cars, so as to bo heard by lOi, said : “Members of tbc Board of Public Works and of tbc Board of A'dermcL: gentlemen contractors, aud fcllow-dtwcns : At the commw»cemtm* if mi* important work, the Mayor of this city, bring its chief officer, and supposed to represent the mests of all onr citizens, was appoLued ;u ;.’:n jtv •die first shovelful of earth, thereby eadj.-jlng the work, and assnring the world that it was ibe wish of the citizens of Chicago mat this great wo.k should be done. Now (bat this great portion of it is completed, 1 have the great pleasure and the honor. as being Mayor of the city, in like capacity, to put the last finishing stroke upon this work. Ills Intended, as 1 understand it, that the citizens of Chicago seal roy act, this great work with their ap- rousing cheers rent the confined air of the tunnel as the Mayor concluded his brief speech, delivered under the waters of the great Lake Michigan, and yet not nnder difficulties. ' Mr. EveriU then offered the trowel, which was taken by the Mayor, who applied the cement ait toned (be stone, remarking as be did so that be had done some other things better than bo feared bewonlddo that. Tie stone was then put Into Ila plate by him, nad be said, while doing so, do- »alloc ht« voice: “Now, gentlemen, id oehalf of the city of Chicago, 1 place the lavt etonc in this great tunnel, the wonder of America and of the world." The announcement was received with Ibrcc rousing cheers. As the atone ws - pnl In position the dock above struck eleven; tv wua not h“ar-’ by the celebrants, bnt a careful noting of time choired Lbai it was done on the strode of the nour. I it took come time to CLII in this cement careful* ly, and to wash the f tone so that all who came hr alterwards might h*-able to read the inscription in the dim light. While this waa In progress, the Mayor announced that be had laid three copper cents under me stone, and some others or the party followed bis example, pushing their ccnu Into the now rapidly sealing cement. The work concluded, the Mayor said: "Gentlemen, I an nounce to yon all that the last stone in the tan fid la laid, and the work is completed." During the latter portion of the proceedings there was a running fire of cross talk of a Jocular kind kept up, not worth repeating, but pleasant cnoocn amid the gloom. To one cheer “ Long lire the tunnel." the Mayor replied, "Long live the people who have built It, and may it bo used by many succeeding generations." Tfao senti ment was answered hy three times three. The stone is a neat block of white marble, mea suring some 12 1-vfihr3H Inches. It bears the simple inscription. In plain letters shout an inch high* CLOSED UP DEC. 5, IBM. Tbe ceremonies concluded, the party again took the cars, ana proceeded eastward to the crib, landing on its plank platiorm exactly one hoar after leaving the shore shaft, and were sainted most heartily by the crowd which, having come over to the crib »*• the first tog, were eagerly await- arrival. The first party wss closely followed by the second train of cars, the time consumed Inlay ing the stone by the one having compensated for tbe delay in loading the other. Tbe only accident which occurred waa to this second train, and that was only the breaking of one of tbe aide boards to a car. ncccssliaiing a delay of a lew minutes la fixing it. By the time these had landed, the tugs had Drought another complemeat, and tbe crib was well filled. The party grouped about the filatform, looking at the machinery, asking ques lons, and playing practical Jokes, for some lime, their number being somewhat diminished taking of a few throne* Jue Cnnnel westward. SALUTES, ETC. Tbe occasion was marked by a display of flag* from the Conrt House, tbe office of the tunnel, and other places, and a salvo of artillery thunder, which was belched forth from the Dearborn guns, stationed on tbe lake shore. We should not omit to mention among tbe commemorations, a royal salntc of seven cans, fired from the roof of the crib struclaic by the officers of tbe Bohemian Club, of this city. The compliment waa well de served in view of the great amount of work which the (unncl has made fur the reporters. They have written a great deal " and the end ta not yet," though the tunnel he declared officially finished. Messrs. Doll & Gowan came through the tun nel with the second party, tbe latter bearing with him the stake, which had been displaced on th'e 17th of March, 1963, when the first shovehol of earth was dug out- It was ornamented with the "red, white and blue" ribbons, and was borne by him proudly among the visitors, who sainted ft Instil) when told what the object really was. From 11 o'clock till S. the first arrivals waited for the " party of tbe last part," who came not through the tunnel till long after the last-named hour. It was intended to bold a mealing on the cub, In which some of (hot party should partici pate, bnt rftcr waiting till they were tired, it was finally decided to proceed without them. METING 02? THE CtUB. At half-past two o'clock. J. Ci. Glndele. E«q„ Chairman of the Board of Public Works. mounieu tbr stairs which stood near the centre or the Crib, 9 nd spoke as follows: *• Mr. Mayor, Gentlemen of the Common Coun cil, and fellow-citizens: The uleseant duty has been assigned to me of expressing to you the object of this meeting. •jhi« day, which 1 hope Is to be worthy of re membrance in the history of Chicago, has gathered us together to descend into the bosom of mother earth, where but a few years sii.ee, no ore dreamed that a human being could breathe. We hav* passed through the dark region, surrounded by the mighty elements “with which no enduring league could he formed," to b- witnesses of (he completion of a work whose construction has attracted in rbe highest degree, not only our own attention, but that of the whole civilized world. We have Just put In place the keystone of this great and peculiar work Ahhough the undertaking cannot yet be considered ar. completed to its lull extent, or at once devoted to its intended purpose, we nevertheless feel impelled by a holy sense ot duty io bow with thaiiofulncss to that Providence which has restrained (he threatening elements, ami caused to originite and proceed, a work novel and hold in its conception, and :rom which wo look for ibe greatest pleasing to flow to the inhab itants of this city. The closing up of the arch of this tunnel is the culminating point of the whole undertaking. Ihe completion of it forms the moil beautiful ami important link in the public worn- of this city. Well may we be timiil.::'! and reioice for what has thus far been ftccouttiiihhed. The enterprise was no ordinary on*—;t was dangerous. The resolution to engage with the uncontrollable element in so perilous a strife, proceeded Horn the gradually obtained conviction (hat no other way led to the cud sought. [Cbeers.l It is needless to say that (be supply of tbi’grcar and growing city with pure and wholesome water in abundance was long acknowledged, and often deeply telt, to he of the greatest necessity. Pally experience at certain times fully confirms tins statemen*. The late Water Commis sioner* were zealously engaged in seeking to ro lievelhat necessity, and when the present Board oi Public Works succeeded them, these eflbrls were unceasingly continued. From theaa i* re sulted that among the dirierent plans presented in JB'vi, by Mr. (’hesbrongh, the Chief Engineer, the construction ofa tunnel under Lake Michigan ap peared to he not only the best adapted to the ob ject in view, but the cheapest, if great difficulties be not met with in carrying it out. This it was impossible to determine certainly in advance. In order to assure tbcniM Ivon as far as possible of Ibe practicability of constructing this tunnel, the Board caused the most careful examinations to bs made of the soil under the lake. Tnc result of the-o was so favorable that we ventured to recommend the carrying out of the project to the City Council It is, of course, well under stood trat so great and strange an undertaking should meet everywhere With opposition and did not easily gain public favor. But the controlling spirit of our population, ready to undertake great wotkt, on the one baro. and the imperious neces sity of providing g-od water for the city on the other, very soon removed doubt with regard to the practicability of the woik. ibe plan, after careful consideration, was n-uu-nved hv the City Council, and then steps ta>.«’U to can y out the project, wntch nave been flrcoiiijißt.icd with the happiest success—ou the oiicband. in cousequvi.ee of v.ry favorable cir cumstances; and, on Ibe other, through the care and zeal of the Chief Engineer and hjs principal assistant. Mr. Clark: the able advice of Mr. Eiastus W. Smith, in New York; the energy and perwveranre of the contractor*, .Messrs. Dull £ Gowau, aided by their Superintendent. Mr. Oner man, and others; the faithfulness of th n Inspect ors, Messrs. Bramhall, Krovscfael, Everett, and oiocn.; and last, nut not least important, -bo pa tient and eome.liues pciiiojs labors ot the work men. We arc pushing the work wilh the greatest pos sible speed to Its entire completion, and the day is not distant, we feel.iu which it shall be granted to Uh to thaw f om its inexhaustible source, pure and clear, me element greatly longed for. May that day be a day oi universal rejoicing, and in jy Kit d Providence prof ct Ibis work now' and ever more. At thispolnlof time,Mr.Ueaing proposed that tlm-ec been* be given f.ir Mr. Chcshrougb, tae Board ot Public Works and all the men wno have had to dowltht'c successofthc great tunnel.

Clatk *hcn proposed that tnree cheers be given tor the laborer? on the work. Tko cheers we:e given wl'h lusty voice. At the conclusion of the npplante there were loud calls for Aid. Hol den. 1 hat gentleman then appeared. Aid. Holden then said: You call on tne to-day, I presume, that i may add my testimony to the recognition which others make of the success of this great woik. celebrated as the President oftbo Board ol Pubbc Works has said it should be. Wc all have great ami Just cause to bo proud of this day of our life. We celebrated ihe opening of this wonder not only of Chicago and the Northwest, bnt this wonder of tbe entire world, for elsewhere than In Chicago such a Icing a? this lake Tunnel i? not known, fravclling twenty seven rolmtcs by the watch, of mooing lime, we wore lamledfrom the land shatt to where we rose in the midst of our noble lake, the entrance ofthc great waters to our city, we have travelled through this tunnel, and wc have seen the pertec tlonotthls most magnificent work, which has been made perfect In Itscvrrjparu To Chief Engineer chcsbrougb, (and those who aided him: to the contractors, sod to their assistants; to the men who have done this wont, be great praise given. (Applause.] 1. lor one. feel like paying th.it words cannot express my feelings at this conquest of genius over the obstacles of nature. (Ap plause J This is, at it should be, a Joyous day in our existence. It is a day that give* to Chicago that for which for years past wo have been asking, a sufficient supply of puro water. This tunnel will give ns water irom the pnrewa.crof Lake Michi gan. and 1 believe for ail time it will furnish It It has been said that Chicago, through her mu nicipal authorities, has been extravagant; that wc were'pending a great deal of money; bat whea we take into consideration the vast improvements that an* now b< log carried forward, and among others we may Include this gigantic work, it will cease to be a question where the people's money goes to, Renumber, too. this is hat at.c of the treat works now going forward. The bed of onr canal Is being lowered, that by it wemay by that route pass to the Mis sissippi River, and wc hope wo may he called noon within three years to celebrate »he comple tion of that great work which is help? carried forward by Messrs. Masoa & Gooding, and others. Then again, wc are tunnelling our rivers ; we are improving onr streets, we are doing all that a feeble municipal body can do to spend vonr money Jndidonrly; In tbo meantime until these works are done, when It is raid wc are extravagant yon should remember that we in dne coarse 01 time show great results. It is hardly a fitting , time for sitecch ; we are all too glad to talk, and by detaining yon I shoo'd hardly caro your thanks, so I will cease, expressing mycratuude that 1 have bad allowed me the opportunity of adding a word in relation to this most glorlou* event of our life. Aid. Clark being called forward, said: Gentle men of the Board of Public Works. Mr. Mayor, ard • on gentlemen Aldermen of the city and all friends here assembled: 1 had hoped somebody more able would have been called upon to speak on mis occasion, but 1 oo desire to express my t*nmks and my joy at the success that has crowned Gas gigantic work. I icei in doing so tint I would rather some one else had expressed my ritws; that some one who would have been able to give telat to the occasion bad been railed npon to speak. But Ina-mucb as lam hero, I will r Imply say, that in the accom plishment of this great work and In its edebm tlun 1 see one of the proudest days of my life. We are here to-day celebrating a great triumph of civilisation; a greater cause for tnompb and joy ha* hardly occurred to a people in the nineteenth century. To-day we can Join our voices, not In song, perhaps, bnt In sweet unison at the accomplishment of a great work, such as heretofore the world has not seen. We can rejoice not only in onr unbounded feli city that we possess, bnt in the means of health that we shall shortly receive. [Grca' ap plause.] I have no words to express my ideas of this work. For me, If 1 bad words, to speaktbem would be superfluous, bnt 1 may say that 1 think we have can*o to be thankful, not only to the ma terial agents, bnt to the God above os who has Uowcd not one single accident to happen lu the a prosecution of this gigantic enterprise. I believe all the people of Chicago will Join with me la the expression that thlaiaa day to he celebrated. have n< c< mp ishM Jjj we aimed at. Home, In her prondcat day, had her viaducts, ai-d New York leads her -ater for many miles, but such an enterprise as this, which dams a lake and turns its current Islo a city. Lover be fore was thought of. Wc have thought of It not only, hut wc have accomplished the labor, and wc rejoice, as we may, mat this day we open the greatest work that the world baa seen. [Great applause.] v. I>. Driscoll, Esq., was ti.cn called out. Ho took a convenient stand and spoke briefly. He said be hardly knew bow this thing of speaking came In oider, and he did not want to stand in the way of any who could express their Joy to words. Said be, 1 am willing, however, as an officer of the aty, at this time to say a lew words In refer ence to tte great work which has been accom plished. 1 do, however, hope to bear from others 1 shall be very brief. The citizens of Chicago, without regard to any ques tion of property or influence, should feel a com mon Interest is the completion of this tonne!. It has been aaid by those who come from the Hast that Chicago pre sented everything almost which coaid be de-irrd—that Chicago presented the largest cram warehouses in the world, the most magnificent commerce, bnt they complained of our water; they said onr water was Impure. Now, within a abort time wc will remedy toe evil. By this ton ne! we will draw Into onr booses the pore water of the lake, and while we have everything else, 1 thank God to-duy, that we can tell oar Eastern frtetds that we can give them as pare water as they receive from the Croton Aqoedact, or from Falrmoam, The public picas has been liberal in its remarks upon ibe question of onr streets, but when weconsldrewhaitbe officers of the ei-y have done sholnd wo not ask them to silence their voices; should wc not point them to the successes of the officers of the city to qualify any faults they have made, it is an easy matter io criticise—it !a not difficult to find fault—lt is a very naima) thing to And fault, but it ia proper that credit sbomd be given here where it is due. [Applause.] We have no pure water rutting from a mountain side, hut wc have a lake, and to day we rejoice that that lake will flow even into onr booses. [Applause.] And I want to tel| you. although I 39°’: p.C.'Jt? to be a Detent lawyer, th“l TO? Inis greal lav ml on yon might apply to too Commissioner of Talents . ot Washington and take a patent. [Applauds.l Gentlemen, J do not ocslrc to speak on this occa sion. This great work has been accomplished without accident. It Is not only a success, as I have said, but Ills the opening wedge of an era of improvement in the world, ft Is its own enco tnlum upon the Board of Public Works that have carried it Into operation. 1 want lo add bnt one word. Aa an officer of this city 1 ask yon to let no man who has been encaged in this work go fonb hungry or naked,bn; let every man wuo u&e aided yoo In this enterprise be fed and dad. [Ap plause/! Mr. Cbesbrough was now loudly called for. In response to the repeated calls, be said: I cave bnt a feeble voice. It Is difficult for me to make myself heard. More than that, wo who have been engaged In this work as laborers, led that other men, and not us, should do that work of making speeches which now seem- to be in order. We thank you, and we thank God, with all onr heart, that this circumstance has brought ns together to-cay. J led thankful to von for what yon have sold concerning thts work. Those who have ro long and anxiously watched the prosecution of tbie work, white they are congratulated, congratn. late yon on the prospect of the coming in of a healthful stream of w ater as the result of your en terprir-e. Gentlemen, It is difficult In a matter of this kind to say wbat credit belongs to any person, but 1 tnink yon ought to give thanks to those who have taken npos themselves the responsibility of the woik. Jt la not difficult for an engineer to suggest a plan, but it involves a great responsibility lo those who employ him lo carry it out Especially is this the case In this Instance. AH of you know ho«v much doubt there was about the propriety of nndertak lug thin enterprise. Some of my most fastaud near friends were of opinion this was a moat fool ish enterprise. 1 could not blame them, lor such opinions, for it bad the look of cntoplau dream ing to those who bad not had the opportnniry of investigating Vhc project. But an yon know the work has been cariicd on. and now we know as well Hie a success, and upon that success I con gratulate you most heartily. [Applause.] Mr. Go wan then said: I am not very apt at makirg speeches. The best man to do that be 1> ngirg lo onr Arm is my senior partner, Mr. Dull. Mr. Dull then said: I have very little to say to ynn; 1 have looked Into the contract I made with the uty, and I find nothing in u requiring me to make a speech, if it bad neen there 1 should not have signed It. [Laughter.] THE ODE. The following lines were written ou the crib, by George T.

TOE COLLATION The talking ended, the party were Invited to walk into the room in the crib structure, which has so long served as the dicing room for the workmen, and there treated to & very substantial collation, the food being followed by some excel lent wine. No speeches w ere made. TOE ADJOL'UNBENT. Tills closed the proceedings. The tugs com menced to lake ofi the visitors at about four o’clock, and from then till sundown there were parlies leaving for the shore.
