Axonmt Pcesxj.tat!ok. —On Saturday evening Sergeant Adam Mergenthalcr, formerly in charge of the Archer Road Substation, was presented by the citizens of the Third, Fourth and Fifth Wards, south of Twelfth street with a magnifi cent gold star, valued at $l6O.

ACCIDEKTTO THE WstiIISSTOS SnOTT TdOfTL. —On Saturday Mgbt« very eerious occldentoccur red lo (be Washington street tunnel excavation on the east side of the river. The work of remov ing the earth for a distance of one hundred and twenty feet or more had thus tu been accomplish ed without any extraordinary ociay. The more eastern portion of the soil had only been removed to the depth of fifteen or twenty feet,tne sides being battened with boards, ’he Intervening space bclccKoccnpied by a sort of frame trestle work which prevented any caving in. About fifty feet s quare,extending to within (twelve or fifteen ice’ of Uc river, was occupied by a nuri l f.Tgi«* and) a demck, and all staging and other supports necessary to properly carry on the work. Till* entire pars*,'nem*lla was supported on rollers at cither bide That It might be moved the same work. Like the wot already £ gabbed, the sides were battened, -and«oomraicaied bracing of light timbers filled ■up *" e ctmire: lnu the excavation had been made .-to a depth of forty leet or more—the fall depth. It understood, that it wu intended to carry the Vork. In order to prosceme their labors success fully, the contractors bad obtained permission to remove a section of the street sewer lor a distance of about one hundred feet, substituting two branch pipes ot wood, extending north and south to the side of the street and thence to the river as before. It appears that the one on the south side of the etroefwas Insufficient for the purpose. At a late hour on Saturday night a loud crash was heard by some who were to the vicinity at the time, and upon hastening to the spot It wa* ascertained that at a point abont thirty five feet from the river, the sewer on the south side had broken, and its contents had silently undermined the whole of the lower exca vation. precipitating the engine, derrick, staging, bradiur, everything Into a mass of ruins at the bottom. It & not believed that any person was trpon thewoik at the time of the catastrophe. Tbe water was continually running in yesterday, and at the time onr reporter visited it there was a depth of twenty or twouy-flve feet of water.

Aanrfr to Qneries from -Ik Interest Charged on Loins— Vindication of a Bnob Abused Class. Oor readera are doubllcas aware that some time since a Bureau of Statistics was established at Washington. In pursuance of the duties of his office, tbe Director has addressed circulars to ia. dtvldnsls In different parts of the Dulled Stales, for information on the several topics, tbe elucidation of which has been committed to his charge. Among other queries addressed to the liuten Is one as to the rate of “ Interest or an nual pet ceutage, paid tor the use of money in this cur, on pqtional effects (pawnbroker a Question is suggestive. “Ten per cent a month/’ or one hundred and twenty per cent per annum, is all that the pawnbrokers exact from thtir patrons for the use of their money in small or large quantities. How these men man age to live and continue to do business on eo small a percentage of profit may well be woo dered at: perhaps they would find it Impossible without {be extra profit realized out of an occa sional confiscation of the property Insured by them against a return to the owner. By a skil ful nse ot their rights la the premises, they may sometimes manage to double or treble the above named margin of profit, and It is believed in some quarters that the more success ful make this a part of their business. By Judi cious handling, a cash capita] of (say) two thous and dollars znsy be made to yield an annual return of fifteen to twenty thousand, though tbe average will perhaps be about eight. In tbe absence of other more lucrative modes of money making,the pawnbroker is forced to be content with this mis erable Income, and bear calmly tbe anathemas of the still poorer wretches who after availing them eeives ot bis libeiality, foolishly or wickedly charge him with being an extortioner, with having no beast, Ac, in language more forcible than polite. It was with a sigh of anguish that the pawn broxtagfraieniUy two years ago learned that an efiort was being made to induce tbe I/egislature of this State to allow one of their number to accept a less rated interest. They were going to ruin fast enough already, and this measure, if passed, would reduce them from moderate poverty to ab solute penury. it must not be. They fonghtthe measure to the best ot their ability, but the profits of their business being so small they conm)not afiord to spend money enough to fight the measure successfully. The back or the monopoly, and the hearts of the monopolista,were alike broken. Tbe bill passed, and tram that date tbe “Chicago Loan and Deposit Company” was authorised to charge (we believe) one per cent a mouth for tbe use of its money, on tbe security of personal property, with a reasonable addition for insur ance, cost of tickets, Ac. Tbe depositors would have been in ecstades bad they been In the habit of reading tbe papers, which few of them are. Yet tbe news travelled, and the custom of tbe other establishments was soon in processor transfer to the oiM In question. It was the mlllenlam to the poui oMituM «ho vlitt tbepnm-kop, llw mlooa and tbe Police Court, with exact regularity, but the church never. Only one cent on the dollar I Was not the news too good to be true ? It was. We saw one of tbe unfortunate* who borrowed a Utile money booh alter thegrand open ing. lie showed his ticket with an air of tbe most intense disgust: at this distance of time we do not remember the ntedse wording, but It was tantamount to what follows; Loaned on gold watch $9,00 To interest at one per cent Insurance and storage 9 per cent. Cost i f ticket M per cent. Total charges J.9S Received by depositor $8.03 equal to about twelve and one-fifth per cent on the money actually used for one month or less. The thing was after all about as broad as it waa long: it anything, a little more so. Slowly it was ibnud out that toe change was no improvement, and the business settled back into ite old channel. The other pawnbrokers were relieved from the nightmare of impending min, though they never eonld forgive the deception by which they were led to believe that thtlr honest profits would be interfered with. They still continue to make their more than cent per cent onl of a c'aas of people wbo can least anoid it* and the wai) of poverty strike* licir cars but a* a disguised laugh—a pecu liar way that does have of making merry over the little dilemmas which, however disagreeable tuey may he at first* become absolutely pleasant from practice in their endurance. That the pawnbrokers do not make too much money out of their patrons is proven by their constant unwillingness to loan large sum*. You take in a gold watch which has coat yon a hon dredand fifty dollars, and ask for a loan of fifty dollars. Tbe gentleman blandly informs you that the ideals preposterous, and the act impossible. Ben ipnt make five dollars on that watch In any number of day* under one month, at ten per cent on fifty. Bui be much prefers making only two dollars on twenty, or rather on eighteen, for tbe interest is always deducted at tbe time of bor rowing. His mudfish son! revolts at the Idea of making so much oat of your necessl ties, and when yon*’mlldly remonstrate that it is too Utile, he benevolently consoles yon with the assurance “tbat Lbere will be so much lea* (o pay.” Be might lend fifty on that watch and in case of fail ore to redeem, coaid sell it ior at least twice wait vonagreed to pay, bnt “perish the (bought,” he Is airtdu if too pledge yourself to a large amount yon will niTer be able to recover your property. Tfii- would pain him beyond ex pression, ana be charitably determines not to place yon in such a dilemma, though it would pot more money to hie puree.” That any should doubt the punty and unselfish character of bis motives is deeply to be deplored, and shown how tbe good and noble may be maligned equally with the vile. The letter of Inquiry above referred to, mates one important omission: it does not ask the ex* tent of the badness is Chicago. We will endeavor to supply the void. Thercure about eleven of these establishments in the dtj, of the regular class, besides a lew who practice irregularly. They employ, probably, a capita) of about fifty thousand dollars in actual loans, and dear at least two hundred thousand per annum oil the neces sities of the poor, predicate, or criminal. Esti mating that the same mosey is lent out twenty times in the year (the majority of pledges being , redeemed at the earliest posaihle moment), aud that onc-fifih of the value of a pledge la advanced thereon, U would give a valuation of about five millions to the personal property which is annual ly *• ej*mted n with “ mine unde' 1 in Chicago. CBBISTMAB. Tcrbnm saplentem Satis. Christina* la coming—the last Christmas ac cording to Rev. Dr. Ctnammg, that ever will come, os our planet, providing the Doctor apeaks truly. will resolve itself Into its original element* within a few daye, more or leas, after the next Fourth of July. in consideration of the pre dicted catastrophe. It behooves one and all of us to nse onr beet endeavors to make to-morrow the merriest day of the year, lie first things , to be done hr crows folks in the morning will be to empty tbe stockings of the little once, to take note of their happiness and abandon while admiring the fruits of Cringle's gen erosity, cno to recollect Christmas mornings lone ago, when many who are now disposed to doobt everythin? which they cannot see, had as firm a faith In the existence of the bead of the Cringle family, as Columbus bad is his ability to find land by Balling In the direction of sundown. Later in tbe day tbe Christmas turkey will be brought to view, grandpa and grandma, and all the uncles and aunts that cur come, will 'sit at the dinner table, and, even while dolcglhetrbcfitto forward the disap pearance ol the turkey and its accompaniments, will tell of their joys (sod, perhaps of their sor rows) since the last CUtlstma*, ana grandma will be sorely vexed xf any one attempts to Interfere ■with her as*limed right of stuffing her favorite grandchild until the little martyr rave, "Pluase don't t ire me any more until 1 grow blrger." T here is another way to spend Christmas, but life not a very good way, and we believe all well meaning people will join ns in our wish that the custom may soon be abandoned. It ts for two or three, or half a dozen, to go into a saloon In the early morning, and order egg-nog*, at a cost of a quarter of a doVar for every mug full. Tbe con tents ol the firsi mug will be bo satisfactory that another "round" will be calleu and paid for; and in a very short time, one of the party who has nut ** treated ” will propose a third drink, which, of course, will be taken without protest; and the same ceremonies will be gone through with, at different saloons during the dir and evening—tbe consequences of which will be, drunken slumbers at night, and an idea that a small saw mill is at work ;n tbe head m the morning. A very good way to spend Christmas is to visit tie deaemng poor of one's neighborhood, and irlvc them something with which they can mace pood cheer, ilanypoor people, some of them living within a square or two of (be wealthy lady orgtnilcrnan who will read this article, are not able to have any better dinner on Christmas thsu on other days, acd what they have on the M other days" is not as nutritions as that which many men in Chicago give to their il.-gs. Among these poor ate widows of men who lie under the sod at Uurlreesboro, and ia 'ho shadow of Lookout Mountain- They and their children deserve from the people of Chicago all that they will ever receive; so there will be no t. anger in giving them too ranch on Christmas * &ere Is still another good way to spend Christ ires. Suppose, hind reader, that you had a quar rel with one of your neighbors a few months ago; and that there has been bad blood between yon and him ever since. Ton will doubtless meet him on Christmas morning, and if you do, yon bad better accost faim in a friendly way, and tell him that you are noxious to have the old score blotted out, and a new account opened. Jf yon pursue this course, ibe chances are that yon will changes bitter ene my into a warm friend. But If be remain obdo nit, go y onr wav and )e> him go his ; in any event yon wilt have the satisfaction of knowing that Ton have done your part toward bringing about a reconciliation, and that he will be wholly respon ble for all future estrangement.

WANTED, A BRIDGE. The River at Adams Street—A Crossing Needcd-D hy t and When, The great trouble with Chicago is that U is like a fast growing bo/, whose clothes are always too little, let the original proportions be as ample os yon like. We make provision for the present de mand, but even before the emt be purchased, the boy has grown beyond the rise to which the clothes will fit. We build a school-house In the centre of a given district, calculating for twice the number of children needing educational training when the plans are drawn. By the time that the etmetnrexs opened the school is foil, and in less than six months comes a plaint to the authorities iliat hundreds of children are wlthom seats, bo with our roads, our horse car faculties, our sham railroads, court house, harbor, fire alarm telegraph, police force. Bridewell, Jails, &c. There is reason to fear that even oar great lake tunnel will soon be found 100 small for the supply of Chicago, though we now consume but between nine and ten million gallons of water daftr and the tunnel, coder a heavy pressure, can give onl seventy-five million gallons, or enoneb far a million and three-quarters of peo ple. The water will not have been long set run ning before another tunnel will be required; In deed. U 1» ilteady talked ot us a safety measure, in case the present one should at any time fail. The question of creasing the river is with the people ot Chicago almost as perplcxlnga oneas Itwis to the Israelites when pursued by the Egrp liars. If He waters were anrhlag like pure, the Chicago River might he forded. If the cost of bridg ing it could not be at-forded: hut experience shows that this la equivalent to instant death. We build a bridge or two every year, but like the f-chool-hocees. their accommodations do notnn crease so rapidly as the demand. It is a problem of continually angmentms difficulty to get from one Division of the city to the other, as the long lines ol vehicles which wait for hoars at a nonu • nal crossing practically show. The ume lost In wailing is worth millions of dollars a year to a go-ahead Western people, while a more fearful de ficit le exhibited in the footing up oftue Christian virtues under the beading,, -Satan Cr M by pro fanity ——————— SOUls. Some little relief will be given by the tunnel under the river at Washington street, when tbit is finished, but It will be bnt partial; relieving prin cipally that section of the South Division lying within one block of Washington, and a little grea ter width In the West Division. •AU that great and rapidly crowing section of the city ilying south of hladlson will be comparatively unaffected hr it. About three bridges are scattered along the river, bnt more are wanted —needed Imperatively. The distance from Madison to Van Bureo U naif a mile within one block, and there are no means of cross- Ingin tbeintenral. From Van Bnren to Eighteenth street, a distance ofabout a mile, we have another river stretch, unbroken by anything except two rickety structures—mere apologies for bridges, on wblc* a lean can scarcely be trored, and whose opening and shutting ia almost the work of a de cade. Tbe most pressing want Just now is for abridge at Adams street, to serve the double purpose of saving time and distance to those on or near thtt street* and relieving greatly those wbo will con tone to cross at tbe other points north of last. It would be an especial boon to those wbo travel by the Lome cars, sud those vehicles would then be patronized by many wbo cannot now afford to wait in line at tne bridges, and, therefore, fool it with a bridge at Adams and the tunnel at Wash ington, they and the Lake street bridge would tako tbe great army of teams and carriages, and leave Madison and Randolph comparatively free lor the bone cart. The South and West Divisions are rapidly filling up southward, and especially In tbe former the course of trade la moving with no uncertain step in that direction. What itf now a nuisance win soon become intolerable, sad fire long the one hundred toottsacd re idenfV of Ibe West Division will be shm off from all cofiajmnication with the Sontn, and may be strongly tempted to secede and set up a dty government of their own. Should the new Citv Hail be bnllt sear the Bock Island depot, as now proposed, tbe necessity fora bridge at Adams street will be still more Impera tive, and wOI admit of no further delay. It abnnid be remembered that the longer the construction of a bridge at Adams street ta defer red, tbe more difficult will it be, the more expen sive to the dty, and the more awkward to deal with vested interests. The bridge Is wanted now, and every month that it is delayed tens of thoa ande of dollars are lost to tbe citizens of Chicago, in tbe destruction of that time which, to the busi ness man, is always mosey. AN ETERNAL BELL, Sermon by Ber, B. fflU Hatfield, D, D. The announcement that Rev. B. M, Hatfield, D. D., would preach on tbe subject of eternal pun ishment, drew a full congregation to the Wabash Avenue Methodist Church last evening. The text was from Ezekiel, 13th chapter, 7th to Uth verses. The speaker, immediately alter reading (he text, assumed the offensive, and kept It up nil the dose ot the sermon. He said tbe Bible must be taken as it read, andnotdistorted as UnlrereaUsts andnoridly-wieemenarela the habit of doing. If each man were to make out a meaning for him self; the Bible would be like an organ, on which auy given sound could be made, and at any time plated. Some men, said the speaker, claim that the passage relating to tbe sheep and goats Is wrongly construed—they claiming that tbe sheep wcrelniended to represent the human race, and that the goats were nothing more than the sins which tbe sinners had thrown. As well say that 'when a man was tried and convicted of a capital crime, the Judge ought to give him a free pardon, and execute his hat and boots. The argument that the : existence of bell could not be proved by tbe Bible, or ihat those dying without repentance did not suffer eternal punishment, was perfectly ab sutd. touch arguments were not entitled to the least consideration, whereas there i vat something tangible in the hold position occupied hy the late Theodore Parker, who once said that the Bible clearly made out a bell with never ending tor ments, and that be did not, and could not. believe in a book that taught such atrocious doctrines. Unman wisdom was too weak to Interpret God's meaning, except through ibe inspired book»-tho teaching* of which should be taken precisely as they read. The human race, being steeped in sis, were uot competent to interpret (be law which they bad violated, nor to decide upon tbe penalties which they had incurred. At tbe Judgment Day their places would not be in the jury box. but in the prisoners’ dock, before the bar of God. Suppose any one of tbe many gamblers who infest this city v.ere to inveigle a stranger into bis den and rob him of SS,Ow or SIO,OOO, If be were put on trial lor this robbery, would U be Just to the community to permit b»« to assess the punishment which be deserved! or would the Court be Justified In aUowisgaJury of blacklegs to make up the verdict? How would it look, providing the arch-traitor, Dans, were placed on Irish If the Judge’s sympathies were altogether In his favor; il be were prosecuted by Judah P. Benjamin; and if the jury were com posed of men wbo bad served four yean in the rebel ajmy ! As well might an Insect give an Idea ot the magnitude and cost of some or the splen did specimens of architecture which adorn this c’.ty.ora toad explain the wonders of St. Peter's at Rome, as for a human being to set his judgment against the Almighty’s, and say that eternal pun i-ament were too severe a penalty for a whole life time of sin. Tbe sermon was delivered in (be speaker's usual animated maimer, and was listened to with the most profound attention. The same subject will be continued on next Sunday evening.

HNIVEBSAIi SALVATION. - Sermon by Rev. W, B, Ryder* I>. 1>« Rev. William H. Ryder, D. D„ pastor of the 6t, Pam's Cniversatlst Church, on the corner of Wabash avenue and Van Buren street, preached a sermon last evening from (he eighth chapter of Isaiah, and twentieth verse. “To the law and to the testimony; if the? speak not according to this wont, it is because there is no light in them." In considering this topic, he sail, (here are some questions which meet tut ou the threshold. When the angels met the shepherds in the Cast and pronounc ed that on that day was bom a Saviour to them, they aid not n can that part should be left out. They api ►eared to bring good tidings and not grief. ft was because ot this that they proclaimed u with bo much joy. We are informed that Jesus came on earth as a deliverer, to take away the Bin of the world. He came as a incdlalor and testator. .in short he is the Saviour of the world—of all manrind. Jf the man as a moral agent Is tick his mission Is to heal the afflicted, os the physical man is now healed by out family physicians. Ungodliness must not re main on the earth. All most pass away, so that Be, as heir to all, may at some time enjoy Ills in heritance. Jesus came into the world to save the souls ol all men, and at some time ttary will all meet their reward. If Christ is the Saviour of the earth, He must save all men upon the earth, and not a part, or He would lose part of His power and glory. The speaker then quoted a number of passages from the New Testament, to show the true mission of Christ on earth. Cirri-1 came to deliver men from sin. He died for na because in ns there was much am. Be, as our Saviour, is to raise and elevate our manhood to that condition where we may en joy his favors, lie died not to indict npon us a penalty for which we must sniffer. and pay in (be tulnre world. The Apostles went abroad preach ing the Gospel, and in all their sayings never mentioned t£c word “hell." Such a word "cannot befourd In all their sayings. They preached that God sent Bib Son,, and the Son of Beaven on earth. In the Sermon on the Mount we arc told to lore all, so that we may be the children of onr Father in Heaven. If now He cherished any retaliatory intentions He ceases to carry out His teachings, and returns evil for good. On the crocs oar Saviour preyed for all men. "Forgive them, for they trow not what they do." bln reigns upon the earth onto death, and there is its end. Even so grace abounds to everlasting life through* Jeetia Christ. To Him every knee should bend, every tongue should confess, that Christ may be acknowledged as the Saviour on earth. Other sects tell ns that Christians, and they only, will he saved];.that Christ came not as the Saviour of the rest or mankind. As men died in Adam so shill they live In Christ. All flesh shall see the salva tion of Christ, and Christ shall reconcile the earth to Himself. * In the Bsrtpcnres we an told that when one cheep was lost from the flock it was tonzd, and all taken together by the sbepherd Into bis fold. The woman who lost the piece of silver found It The prodigal son re turned. Every parsble Informs us that all once lost has been found and returned. We may cross the rivet separately, but we cannot Uvc at peace until all are gathered together In one bond where we sball lore each other as ourselaes. SEABIEN’S BIBLE CLASS. Religions Instruction of Sailors* An interesting and important class of our popu lation, and yet one which commonly receives little of the public care or concern, are the thousands who “do business on the great waters." the sail ors who man and command our almost countless steam and sail craft which hear to and from our harbor the varied products of Industry and skill. For the mostpan brave, generous-hearted, reck less men, they I care In battling with tbs elements, In almosij constant peril ol their lives, a lack of reverence and a dislike to restraint, a love of noisy social excitement and dissipation when relieved from duty, that Isolate them, in a considerable degree, from public sympathy and consideration. For seven or eight months in tbe year they "Toll npon the deep And In veaaels, light and frail. O'er the mighty waters sweep With the tempest and tfic gale." Free-handed and improvident, they spend on score after each trip what they have so hardly earn ed,rarely saving anything forme future. The, when the frost has sealed {up their great highway, and their ships lie Idly tn harbor, these men are turned udrift for four or five mouths, at the season when employment is most difficult to obtain, with little or no money to support them, and so they drift abont in Idleness, many spending their tune in saloons and i gaming • bouses and continuing to support life in one way or another, sometimes honestly and sometimes dishonestly, until spring shall loosen the Icejancbors of their ships and give them again employment. Unpromising as such a class or men is for the employment or means of mtfral and religions im piovemenl, they are not.rfbolly neglected in one city. A number of years«e£ev. J. n. Leonard, a chaplain, succeeded, by his own exertions, in securing tne erection ot Bethel on the corner of KonhWells and Michigan streets, with aid furnished by the New York Seamen's Friend Society and the contributions of many of our citi acre, has carried on a mission with favorable re sults. But there is room for more work of this ehsTßCter, and the friends of million work will here find a favorable opportunity (or doihg good. To cover in part this great field a Seamen's Bible Class has just been organized by Mr. C. M, Morton, in the Illinois Street Metboaist Episcopal Church, between LaSalle and Wells streets, which promises the most encouraging results. Ur. Mor ton commenced by going around (o the saloons and imlticg the sailors to iota hi* proposed class. He baa been generally well received by the men whom he seeks to benefit, and nas found bta chief opposition from the keepers of the saloons and gambling bells, who are by no meant pleased to see their victims led from their mares. On Sunday before last be commenced with four In the class, and yesterday the somber present was about fifteen, giving gratifying evi dence of success thus tally in the undertaking. Within tno weeks eight cnees of hopeful conver tlonhave occurred. The exercises of the Bible class commrcce at nine o'clock every Sunday morning, and conllnoc about an boor. They are conducted in an interesting, cbeerfnl manner, and tbe frequent remarks find queries of different members show that they feel an Interest in tbe proceedings. All tailors, and other voting men. are invited to come and bring their Wends with them. Mr, Morton has alio tamed ’his attention to the Marine Hospital in which are now some eighty or ninety sick or disabled seamen, and has obtained permission to open a Bible class there, which he proposes to commence next Sunday. At present no religious graces of any kind are held there, and a Urge opportunity U presented for this Christian enterprise. Aro endeavor to improve the moral and reli gions condition of this peculiar class of men, is of interest to the whole community in which they live, and tbe Mends of the work should not only approve, but assist and encourage it by their per sons! efforts. SEVEN TBABB IN UNITV OHUBCH. Sermon by Bev. Robert Collier, A large congregation assembled yesterday fore noon at Unity Church, to hear the pastor, Rev. Robert Collier, who preached a sermon on the subject, “Seven years In Unity Church.” Having come to tbe end of tbe seventh year of public wor ship In this church, and, in accordance with an old usage, be desired to say a few words about tbe time, to speak to them of the bbpes and feaie, tbe results achieved, the fruits committed, and see what proof there waa that this was a church ot God. He telt as If the seven years just closed were significant not only of tbe ending of a year, hut as a cycle that included the finishing of thereat- Seven was a sacred number with the Hebrews, and was made to signify completion and perfec tion. Tbe end of seven years brought new hopes and activities: old debts were wiped outbid bonds cancelled, old fetters bled away, and old alns for given. Everything in nature seemed to be ar ranged on the scale ot seven. In whatever di rection we torn we find this to be the case. The first seven years of man's life closed the period of childhood, the second began boyhood, the third manhood, and so on. Ibis circling mys tery of seven pervaded everything, indicating always an end and a beginning. Thu Sunday it was seven years and seven months to-day since he bad assumed tbe duties of pastor in UuKy Church. The speaker then referred to the growth of the church which was the youngest oftbe churches of any note in the Morin Division of tne city. Il had combatted many difficulties and grown op urder every disadvantage and be hardly knew whether Joy or wonder took the greatest place in • ms heart as he (bought of Its progress. Looking back over those seven years and standing upon the verge of a new time, he seemed to have a new sense of ibe dntles devolving upon him in the high trust which was confided to him. Becsdled op the vast array of letters he had received from many quarters oi thanks for some gra cious word which had served to awaken new feelings* and how he bad lived now for seven years in the midst of them, participa ting In their sorrows and their Joys, until there was not a home round the church that had not tome touch ofeacredneas In his heart and life, tbtt was not altogether its own. The end of this seven years comes home, not alone to this congregation. From December, 1559, to December, 1966, was no doubt tbe grand est period in American history. Mo event of deeper consequence In the world's history had ever befallen than that which resulted in the pre servation oftbe American nation. To-day we bear but tbe sullen roar of the waters telling ua (bat the storm is over. It was gratifying to reficct that Unity Church* bad contributed Its full share, both of men and money to the peat cause, that in the midst of the Bianggiaithadmade no distinction between sav in? too nation and saving souls. Tbe speaker then referred to tbe future pros pects oi the church and wfaat was to be done. It was desirable in the first place that every effort should be made to improve the condition of the church. If, he said, they ware content to remain here as they were at present, with only an audi ence room and no accommodations fur schools or committee rooms, they would soon be as dead as a door nail. It wt* & strange delusion which existed in regard to our churches which were often regarded as a kind of spiritual boarding house in which wo conW submit to any annoyance eo we got good tare. There'coold be no more fatal mistake. One’s home could not be more sacred th*n tbe church, if it has done Iks part toward him, and In a community like this, where tbe church depends on the support of the people, every ought to be as much interested as in Ua home. It was a significant fret, that at the close of this seven years they had been able to complete the con tracts for the new church edifice. The ground was already broken on the lot, and as soon as the Tree! was oni they would go ou and not stop till it was completed. Something mote, however, was needed than a new church, and that was new activity in the congregation. It was proposed to organize within the church two soci eties, tbe first of which already existed, namely, the Dnitv Church Fraternity, a society composed principally of tbe young people, whose duty it irfis to take care of the sick and suffering. It baa already done much good in this direction. The second organization was the Liberal Christian League, a society of reform. The object propos ed by this League wai to Investigate Into tbe causes of misery and crime Is the city, to Inquire into tbe condition oftbe poor, and embody tbe lesnlt in some form that will enlighten tbs public and bring about a reform, ‘ibe importance of this waa set forth by the speaker in eloquent terms. Tbe forenoon services were concluded with sing ing and a benediction. Supreme CoiutDeelelons. The following decisions by the Supreme Court of this State are famished by Mr. Freeman, of ficial reporter: FXCXHAX XT AT. VS. HADDOCK XT AL. [To appear in 30 HI. Bep., now in press.] 1.

It not nnlreqnenUy happens (hat Instruments cannot have the effect intended by the parties, and effect is given to them in another way con sistently with euch intention. The rale in regard to the construction of deeds Is, “ that they snail operate aceotdlng to the intention of the parties. If by law they may; and if they cannot operate in ntie term, they ..shall operate in that which, by law, shall effectuate the intention.” And the same rale has been frequently applied in giving effect to other instruments. 81,78515 5.

Speer then applied to one Ihompeou for a loan ot money, and by an agree ment between Speer, Haddock and Thompson, he payment upon the note was erased, and It was endorsed to Thompson. An agreement was wrllUn upon the back of the note, as follows: “ Itrcclvedof Archibald Thompson, as publisher and arapnee. the lull amount of the within note end Interest from date (the Interest to the tOthof May on ibe other tuo notes being paid by 1.

AHniSEmSNTS. A week of remarkably pleasant weather has dosed In slosh and discomfort. The thermometer baa gone up, and so, for a time, haa skating and sleighing, and all tbe pleasures of the bard, frosty weather—pleas ores that In this city would seem to be “like popples spread,” or “like the anow fali In the river." Tbe streets, which a few days ago were alive and merry with the twinkling of a thousand UUle bells, are now plasby and fool, with the snow and mod churned into a consistency resembling coffee Ice cremn. Slosh on the pave ments. puddles at all the crossings, rain pourin'* worn the skies, gloom on every countenance, out door ainnsemeiita have come to a low ebb. It is jrovokincr. Sunday was to be a day of sleigh riding, and here, jnal as “ everybody " had made up their minds, and engaged their teams, and invited their JltUe parties, and congratulated themselves that everything was lovely, comes the dispiriting, melancholy thaw. Notwithstanding all these contrary Influences the parks held ont wonderfully unto Saturday night, when they began to get needed. The rinks continued to receive and sustain pretty ex tensive crowds of skaters, but the ice was all the while melting away, and unless the capricious clerk of the weather sees fit to send another change, the skating and sleighing season u all over lor a time. The theatres, too, have suffered, though not to such an extent, from the disagreeable weather and muddy streets. The attractions during tbe week bare not been of an unusually brilliant character, with the exception of the Bateman concerts on Monday and Tuesday, which created an Immense -sensation. UoVicksb'o Tiixatex.— Mira Blanche Seßar closed an engagement on Saturday night In the play of “The Female Gambler," which held the stage for the greater part of the week. Miss Deßar Is a young lady of good talent, and with a little more experience will doubtless prove a successful actress. She was 100 little known, however, in this city, to have achieved a decided success; the peilormances were, on the whole, rather poorly attended. Monday evening Mrs. Anna Cowell, the popular leading lady at McVicker’s, takes a benefit, and we need scarcely remind our citizens that abets eminently deserving of their grateful acknowl edgments. Apart, however, from lira. Cowell's, own merits as an a rtiart and a lady, there Is an other Inducement held out on this occasion which will doubtless crowd tbe house. As already an nounced, Miss Gertrnde Doggelt. a young lady of this city who has adopted tbe stage as a profes sion. will make her debut In the character of “El vira " in the play of “Pinzaro." Miss Doggelt Is highly spoken of as a young lady of rare accom oltehmeota, and possessed of ta'ents which emi nently qualify her to achieve success In the new, sphere of labor she has chosen. For more than a year past she baa been preparing herself; by a course of dramatic instruction, and those who have bad opportunities of estimating her capabilities, predict for her & successful career. “ Elvira*' te perhaps one of the most arduous assumptions wb>ch could have been scleced for an opening, and If Mis* Doggelt proves to be equal to such a delineation ehe need have Uttle fear for the future. Among the benefits announced tor tbe week may be mentioned dir. Bock’s, ou which occasion Mr. John Dillon, who is now in Chicago, will ap pear. Museum.— “ Wailing for the Verdict” and “Tbe Lillywbltes” were repeated on Stturday evening to a good bouse. Monday anew aenaauou, enti tled “Fortunlo, or the Fairy.” a fairy extravagan za which has been for some time in rehearsal, will beprodneed. Tub UUTcmNßOirs—tribe of John—whose enter tainments some time .-luce were so popular in this city, will give three concerts during this week la the Crosby Music Hall, the first to take place on Christmas eve. Mr. Eoblohn will assist, and Miss Viola will sing several ofFaropa’s songs. Tub Loksceub BBornxna.—These well-known epiritnalL-tlc performers are announced to give a scries of entertainments at the Opera Mouse, com mencing on Monday night. They are said to pos sess most astonishing and mysterious powers lu untying bints and unbinding themselves from the most complicated meshes. The performances commence at a o’clock. Tax Opera.—Max Strakosch’s company bavo arrived, as might have been expected, promptly and on time, for it is a peculiarity of Slrakosch that he always fulfils what hj promises. The tionpe arc so well known tbat it Is hardly neces sary to specify them. GMooi, Canteen, Mad. Slrakosch.

This (Monday) evening tbe opera !s tbe old favorite Trovatore with the follow ing cast: Leonora, Qhlonl; Azncena, Mad. Stra koscb; Maurice, Irfre; Count di Luna, Marra; Per naudo, Collettl. Tbe'aunonncemants as far as made, are: Tuesday. Crtepino; Wednesday, l.’Atricaine; Thursday, Lucreaa Borgia; Friday, Faust. Tux PmuiAniroinc Congest. —A rainy, disa greeable night, a slim audience, and a poorly se lected programme made up the Philharmonic Concert Saturday evening. Tbe orchestra played some parts of tbe symphony (Ulncb’s Triumphal) very well, hut tbe most of Is rather coldly. Tbe vocal parrs ol the programme were only passably sustained, and the whole concert was weak. Miss Plojienos Noble.— A New York paper, lo recording the brilliant d«6uf of Miss Florence No ble at Louisville, and especially the praise which Is bestowed upon the clearness, power aad mel ody of her voice, speaks of her as “a pupil of Mr. Yißdenhofil” It te true that Sites Noble look a few lessons of Mr. V., but we feci it due to art cul ture in the West to say that her dramatic studies were mainly conducted in Chicago, ai Crosby’s Opera House. After taking fom-flve lessons in vocal culture and Shakspeare of Professor McCoy, Miss Noble went to Mew York, and look six les sons of Mr. Vandenboff and twelve of Mrs. Tan douhoSl Writing to a friend In (bte city, she said that these New k ork teachers seem lo Know noth ing about tbe science of vocal culture ; or atleast they gave hci no exercises for tbe cultivation of tbe voice, beyond mere readings, and Which, alter tbe obllosopblcal Instruction of Professor McCoy, seemed lo bar “like attempting to erect an edifice without first laying tbe foundations." In a letter :oa friend in St. Loots, who thought of studying for the stage in New York, Mias Noble said that her inquiries and experiences bad taught her that the moat valuable and thorough elocutionary training was not to be bad io New York, but in Chicago. Miss Noble accoidlogly u-turned from New York to tht« city, and took thirty more les sons at Crosby’s Opera House, and (hen made a very successful debut at the Academy of Music In Louisville, both of the dallies of lost city extolling in the most emphatic terms the correctness and impressiveness other reading, and the eloquence anu music of her voice.

On Thctay-7 evening, the 20th Inst, the Metro poll tan Gynmaslom Club rooms, in on Kinde street, near North Clark, were opened, and became one of the permanent 'lnstitutions of Chicago. The) rooms occupied by the dob in Klntlo Block are the main ball, measuring about sixty by forty feet, and as adjolcmg room about one-Laif that size. Jn the former room they have all their implements of exercise, sueuaa the lad ders to dlmb, the parallel bars, hand strings and spring-board. In the rear end of the room are the dumb-bells and arm bats ready for use; the bells vary in weivhlfrom eight to one hundred and pounds. In one comer of the room they nave a frame built for weights and pulley, a place for the contestants to try their strength. Two (all, slender shoulder bars, with spring board and bar, include nearly all they now have. Beneath every place where there is any danger of felling, arc placed Urge mats, soft and thick, so that if the actor should fdl.no bones will be broken.no flesh bruised. In the second room they have the Superintend ent’s desk, drawers and closets, with plenty of water. Along one side of the room are arranged the five bath rooms, each one supplied with warm and cold water, litis room Is well wanned and

famished, and is intended aa a reception room for the members. The plan upon which the Metropolitan Club fa foimed Is somewhat different from others, and it is so arranged aa that all money received will be applied to the improvement of the rooms, ex cepting so much as will be required to meet the current expenses of the club. It is not tbe in tention to accumulate a capital, and have the es tablishment sink Into the hands of a few. On Monday night the rooms will be closed against all bnt members, excepting a small place which will bo enclosed for spectators who won’d see the dally performances. Since their opening they bate kept “open house," every one being permitted to enter and try bis skill. The menu bers will all be divided Into four classes, each class under the tuition of a competent instructor. The following are the officers appointed: Superintendent—L. H. Konncndy. Instructors—ll. IJ. Olmstead, J. U. Vernon, and A. F. Dickenson. ffbe rooms of the dab will be kept open all boors of the day and evening, for the use of mem bers only. Borne of them are yet young In them erdsr, and retire at night to their conch well knowing how painfol and stiff their limbs will he in the morning. In time they hope to so Improve Adr physical frames that they may appear well, in a true lively condition. It Is this hope causes them to labor in so much pain at present. If their zeal does not pass away with the novelty of the affitir, Chicago may some day be proud of its muscular men. Aubestxd you Biot.—An account was pub lished In last Friday’s Tdibck* of the opening dance at "Sunnyslde”—a hotel recentlyporchascd by " Captain" Hyman, and situated online Evans ton| road, three or four miles (tom this city. It was stated that there was something of a "skir mish" on that occasion between several of the In vited guests, lf> which Miss Ellen HcMasters. « keeper of a fashionable brothel, was compelled to retire from (be scene with her eyes in monming, and a young lady "boarder" at ber residence waa also somewhat crippled in her vision. The McMasters procured from Justice MilUken a warrant for the arrest of ’'Cap tain" Hyman, Ancle, his wite, (nee Stafford), Louisa Wallace and George Eggleston. These par ties were before the Police Court Saturday after noon chanted with riot The examination waa postponed till January 2d. each of the parties bo rne required to give bail for their appearance. Some malignant enemies of the peace and hap piness of "Miss" McMasters on Friday night were bold enough (yet so quiet as to avoid detec tion) to paint stripes of red.

It is a well-known bet that there ia no lack of capita] in the dty of Chicago for prosecuting any legitimate business. If it can be dearly demon strated that the investment win yield three or fonr timea as much as tbe ordinary interest. Large manufacturing establishments are springing into existence almost every day, and still the supply La not equal to the demand. The products of ail mannisctnrlrg establishments are rapidly con sumed in this rapidly growing Northwest, of wkich Chicago Is the commercial centre. We examined, a short time since, a ma chine for the manufacture of screw*. owned and controlled by a few gentlemen in this city, and operated upon an entirely new principle which olds fair to revolutionize the production of tMa neat staple. The common mode of manu facturing screws is to ent tbe thread, which In volves tbe loss of at least fifteen per cent of tbe metal. By the new process to which we refer, the threads are formed in any desired shape by means of revolving dies, or awedges, with no loss of metal, and adds to. Instead or diminishing the strength of the screwier boll, and can be made much more rapidly. This new invention can bo applied to allfelnds of screws now la use.

It is already attract ing considerable attention, and the owners are son* considering the project of opening books for tbe subscription ofetock. - -w In another column mar be found tbe advertise ment of the company, and we have no doubt that if the chance Is ofl'ered, the stock will oe eagerly sought by many of our citizens. Saturday afternoon there were three or four cases of larceny at the Police Court. Bridget Lannln, during the month. of October and a portion of November, was employed as a ser vant by Mrs. Sarah C. Sayres, who reside# at No. bSS Indiana avenue. On tbe SSd of November Bridget left her place, and It was soon after dlo covered that she had taken with her various arti cles of a useful and ornamental character which belonged to her late mistress. Two days ago Bridget was found employed at the Hamilton Bouse, and In hcrlpossession were some of the articles stolen, including a fine balmoralsldrt,a neukinor iwo.atowcl, and three gla*a goblets, vWdgct denied tbe theft and wished to have time to procure testimony to her good character. The' Court required her to give bail or SSOO for appear ance at the Recorder’s Court. Robert Behnne, recently a clerk at a fancy no tion store on Lake street, stole an elegant cigar cate, a meerschaum pipe and other luxurious ar ticles from his employers establishment, besides “borrowing" a floe opera class.
