Ho>r it was spent iu Chicago—Mnkin falls- A Card—Holiday Purchases. “Will, ord hew did yon spend Ne * Year's ParY’ On themomingof the second of Januar* this 19 th* question, propounded with a variety of which a strange variety of re. Fpomts may be heard. It was the happiest of alt Jicw •> cat’s, it was the dullest that ever was seen.

It all depends upon how von feel We fashion the woild according to our own moods and if our digestive organs happen to be In good* order—on important consideration on the first day ol the yeai—with purse lull and friends plenty (Important at all times,) the holiday id likely so bo a happy one.

Outwardly it wore a general aspect of hilarity’ ork was suspended, and all stores were closed. No,not all. Alike barbers'shops in the early part of the day on immense amount of chlo was u-«ptd, lb»'.ciDs the preliminary alep io mtliimr calls. «iib dean shaven laces, well whisked over coats, shining boots, and hair pasted around the forehead in the approved festoon, a tidy throng of people were to be seen emerging from the palaces of delight all ready “made up” for discharging the first duty of the New Year, the pood old custom of eating and drinking at every noose hut your own. Everybody was at home on Juesday, that is, evoi vhody was out visiilug. One « ould not wish altogether to dhpense with these pleasant hospitalities of the first 0 { Ja~na ry, yet they are after all something ofabo-C a fact which many sensible people a*e quite- free, to ■ admit “between you and me.” • Of course it is the duty of everyone to be enthusiastic on this I festive occasion, and Is not yoc--enthusiasm put 1 to a severe test sometimes In the course of a dav as. tor imdance, wheu you are Invited to partake of awing of turkey tor the flfiy-flm time? And docsn tit seem rather a penance than a pleasure for the unfortunate wives and daughters who must stay at home all day Instead of goln" to the parka or the theatres, where all the sport rs to be had? An ingenious and cuter* prising youth of Ibis city hit upon a bril liant scheme tor >avlng time ar.d trouble, which will at once recommend Itself to all New Year visitors for the future. Like many other callers, he felt’naiurally enough, apprehensive le»t alter enjoying a hundred ho>pita«ile-, Includin'' c“~‘ r ogg, o haziness of Ideas might supervene In uucinga corrcspo’.dimr haziness of expression to prevent uncharitable misconstructions. and preserve the morning freshness or his devised a «trd.

Bin out skating?” “ Have quite a number of jnoic calls to make.” “Met somefnends of yours to-day.” “ Think it will snow again before long ?” “Yea. Sleighing Is a nice amusement.” “New Year’s day’s quite an institution.” “Aw ;/toir.” 14 B. While Ihebcarer Is taking refreshments, answers to the above can be written nut." Wbit an Immense savins of time win thus be found by those gentlemen who hive to boast of their forty calls or a forenoon, and at how small an expense net your hundred cards printed— von can always net a tuati of inielleU who will assist yon in the composition—and you have a perfect system of calling made easy. Ibis was not, however, the most prominent feature of Ibelvew Yeai's celebration. Wing of turkey and a little toncrco did not constitute all the enjoyment. In the afternoon the outdoor amusements came in for their share. The thea tres were crowded to overflowing, and the skating parka presorted a lively ana stirring appearance. At the Central.' phere perhaps the most elaborate preparations nad been made, an Itnmenso crowd collected. A brilliant display of fireworks took place in ihe evening, with a variety of spec tacular attractions which made the carnival pass on in a joyful manner- The Washington Park and the West Side Rink had numerous visitors all day and evening. - indeed, skating appeared to be one of the most notable features of the day's fes tivities. At the Washington a grand New Year's ftte was given, at which the Great Western Light Guard Band assisted. A fine display of fireworks enlivened the spoil at the Ogden Park, ttyilch was largely patronized by the Nortbslders. It Is gratifying to record that while every nee enjoyod to the fall the happy celebration of the rvew iear’s Day, there was no unseemly tumults or rows in the streets. All passed off In a quiet, pleasant manner, and very few druuken people were to be seen. The amount of money expanded in this citv dur ing the past two weeks for holiday gifts Is much larger than any one would imagine, without some datafrom which to estimate. During this period the streets and stores have swarmed with people of all ages and both sexes, with money burning in their pockets which they were anxious to expend in presents to friends and relations. The venders of the countless varieties of aiilcles suitable for gifts were not slow to lake advantage of the glowot geuetosity which was so generally dif fused, and the showy and tempting array In windows, shelves and cases, furnished ample opportunities for selection. ‘The wealthy who lavished th-ir thousands on piano?, diamonds, watches and furs, those in comfortable circum stances who fell able to afford th-lr tens and fifties for books, silverware and smaller valuables; and the poor or limited in moans, who spent their carefully raved earnings In trinket-, toys, and various .inexpensive tokens of friendship, all these helped 10 swell the stream of currency which flowed into the bauds ot rejoicing tradesmen. These latter generally boar testimony to the liberality with which ili* y nave been patronized, and ray that, notwithstanding a somewhat dull condition of genera! bu-iness, their talcs have been equal to, i undlu some cases greater thaw those of previous years. Those who have been most liberal in artverli>n g have had the largos! receipts. The five leading articles of holiday goods aro jewelry, books, furs, musical instruments and the comprehensive class called “notions.” Of :he»-e the sales may be estimated as follows: Jewelry, by thirty dealers .$250.^00 I*ur«. bv ten dealers so.ouo Musical instruments, by eight dealers WJ.tuK) Books by thirty-six dealers 151,000 Notions, by forty aca’.cre 05,000 Total $ IT 1,1 MX) Or neatly half a mfllioii dolhirs paid to these Avc I’laseca of dealers alone. One jewelry firm state their sales for the two weeks ni *si»,t 01) ; one mu >ic house estimates theirs at »t3,(RH) or #2o.o'Jfi; one tiotion bouse at f 13,000, and several otbers give nearly equal figures, bm, as man> oi the e«- tabllshcicnis arc much smaller, the 11 -urcs. named a ill probably give a fair estimate. Then mast be considered the thousands spent, for dry g‘>ods, hats, bonnets, clothing, fruits, oysters, ami other articles, ail of which purcuases were vastly increased, if noi cans« d, ny the holiday festiviJies, aud we shall find the startling total of ■ft least a million of dollars paid and received within a small circuit on our principal streets in about twelve days, ior articles more of luxury aud ornament than of real necessity. The house of Giles, Brothers & Co.. No. 113 Lake street, was one of the most extensively pat ronized in the city during the holiday sra-on, and their largo stock of jewelry, plate, watches, Ac., suffered heavily from the inroads made by their friends. We will not Institute comparisons which might be deemed invidious, tmtwo opine there arc few houses in the United Stales, still hss in Chicago, whose holiday sales would aver age eight thousand dollars daily through the sea ron. The fact speaks volumes of popular apprecia tion ol this house, one of?tbe oldest m the city, aud one which needs not to fear rivalry. It l-» bnl justice to them to say, that while their sales wnmd have swept oat a stock of ordinary magnitude, fticy have still left a belter assortment than many dealers began the season with. Another heavily patronized firm was that of Morse, Roddm A Bamilion, well-known, though comparsrivri/ recent iu tbeir advent. MNETEENfU ILLINOIS IN FAN'- TItV. Mm Anutial Reunion or tUc Veteran Club. The Veteran Club of the Nineteenth Illinois In :*an!ry gave their first animal festival at the Briggs House last night, having selected very ap propriately the anniversary of the Daule of stone iiver, at whic'i thir gallant regiment responded »o the anxious cal), when the fight was •>ice*t, “Who’ll save tho leftp’wltb the wild v Large, so celebrated insongand story, that swept •tke a whirlwind through the ranks ol the enemy, and si.afctu-d victory out of the jaws of defeat.

The hoy nihbcil after him, crying “ stop thief, stop thief,” and in a very little linw there was a very exciting ' tliase engaged in by hall % hundred people. The fellow ran In the direction of the Richmond House, and being very closely beret, tossed the roll of money Into a door-yard and “pnllcd cut ” again, lie was first collated by Mr. Sabine Bar ron, end was held until Officer Crane came to take him before the Police Coart. The money was recovered, and belongs to Mr. Johnson, a dealer to skates on Randolph street, by whom the resolnt* Master Wooden was employed.

Joist evening the opera of Fra Diavolo with Its fresh, crisp, sparkling um-ic, was given, but under the treatment it received the music was an% thing but cm*|i or sparkling. The opera was evidently unfamiliar to most of the artist- and as a consequence, it narrowly escaped being an utter tarturc.

Cauissa made the only tolerable personation of the evenfii", and even she seemed to share the prevailing tameness. The two robbers, Collctti and Sarti, did them selves no Justice; the latter being too sick to do more than walk through his part. The choruses were a relief, as they were very fairly taken. The orchestra was better bal at-ced than on tne evening previous, but the location of the reeds among the brasses is abso lately talal n the instrument! cilecL however well the orcbe-tia may play.

To the Enitor of the New York World : Sib Several Incorrect statements have recently been circulated by the pntflic press on the subject of Reuter’s Telegraph Cable. More particularly the position of the Prussian Government towards the new line has been represented by srmc papers in nn altogether erroneous light, and an authentic recount oi the real state of matters may noktherc tore, he devoid of Interest. The concession granted to me by the late Hano • erian government for laying down and working a submarine telegraph Hue between England ana Hanover was confirmed by the Prussian govern ment so far bock as the beginning of August last. It appeared subsequently that some modifications in the concession affecting the working of the line were considered desirable. Both the Prussian Telegraph Administration and Renter** Telegram Company displayed ibc nt moft readmes* to cflcct these modifications )iy mutual agreement. The original concession re mains, however, unchanged in ll- cs-enllal points, while several additions, highly advantageous to Reuter** Company, have been Introduced. Reuter's telegraph cable and the Hud lines connected with It were not constrccted simply wlm the view of adding one more stew line to those already existing, but was specialty de-mnod to introduce ft tew system In telegraphic comma nlration—ihaf, namely, of international through telegraphy. The telegraphic connection hitherto subsisting between Great Britain and Germany was con ducted by a rircuiion* route through France, Bel-. glum ai.d Holland, whll» by Reuter's cable direct communication la ests dished between England, * Prussia, ono the rest of Germany. Another dlsad« vantage (o which the Anglo-German leleciapblc communication has hitherto been subjected, is the great oelay freqnemlv arising from the nece«- sily for transferring and re-telegraphing messages at various stations. To obviate this incon venient and . alien serious los* of time Reuter’s Tclcgiam Companv carries four wl-cs connected with the cable at Nordccney. through Emden and Oldenburg to Bre men, whence two wires arc to he carried on to Hamburg, and the remaining tvo to Hanover. The Prussian Telegraph Adralu'9tratto , i has en gaged to carry through to Berlin one of the two wiles teimluating at Hanover. As the wire* above mentioned no* destined for the exclusive use of the Anglo-Ucnaan telegraphic correspon dence, messages from London to Berlin, Ham burg. Bremen, &c, ami met rrrso, maybe’ele- Sned direct through without any loss of time, on an average, in a very lew* minutes. The value and importance of this new telegraph line arc much enhanced, since the cable, which contains four wires, is of-the beet manufacture, and the land lines in connection with Rare at tached to double posts, in order to heller resist the attacks of wind and weather. The line will he opened to the public In a few days. I am, sir, your obedient servant, London, December 13. Julius Reuter.

SHOCKING TIUGEDT. Sntcfdo of Captntn llobert CS. Vt'cllcu, a Nephew of Secretary Wellew, at C*io»> lenbury, «'t. LFtom the Hartloid Times ot Saturday.) We were shocked to hear of the suicide of Captain Robert G. Welles. late of the regular army aud eldest surviving son of lion. Thaddous Welles,of nephew of Secretary Welles. The rosh*act was com milted at a few inimtlc* before six o'clock last evening, in Uis father’s library. Mr. Welles sal reading hls -eveiiin" newspaper, whin Robert, who had been conversing with him, exhibited a pistol. His lather remon strated against carrying such a weapon, and asked his son to give It to him. The latter declined, though in co unfriend ly spirit. Suddenly approaching his father, he Dung Ids left arm around his neck and kissed him, when, with the single cxclaroa tion, “Farewell, father!” he sank back into a chair, put the pistol to bis head, and fired—all *o quickly, that his father, though springing up to arrest him, was unable'to prevent it. The ball passed through Captain W.’s head, immediately back of the right temple, coming out just above the left car, and, striking a book in the library, fell flattened upon the floor. Captain W. continued to breathe for an hour and a quarter after- the act, but was at no time cocectous. By this shocking occurrence Mr. W.’s fam ily are plunged Into the deepest affliction and grief. Last summer Mr. W.’s eldest son Samuel, was killed by the explosion of a steam engine at Marc Island, Califomia.wbilc engaged in the capacity of engineer, in di recting an important work there. lie was much esteemed by cvetybody who knew him, and to the family his loss was a blow more severe than can well be told. It is be lieved bv Mr- W. that this fresh affliction was occasioned by his son's melancholy over the untimely loss of his brother. Ife had been observed to be low-spirited much of the time since that distressing occurrence. At the burning of tbc church in Glaston bury, on Sunday, be had taken cold In ren dering assistance, and bad since smlered from constipation and wakefulness, getting no sleep on Thursday night. His mother yesterday noticed and spoke of an alarming appearance in his eyes; but he seemed so rational and pleasant, and had conversed so well of his deceased brother, whose letters be bad been reading, that bis father was less alarmed abont him. On seeing the pistol be told his son that it made him nervous, and that he feared he might do something with it to be dreaded, “for,” be added, “you have of late been subject to depressed turns, and you may not know what you would dg.” Immediately after occurred the shocking result. Captain Welles was just twenty-four years old. lie served with marked credit in the regular army* where he gained hi* rank, and resigned not long after the close of the war. Be wasa young man of uncommon talents, and everybody esteemed him. The family oro overwhelmed by ibis fresh and crushing affliction. CHICAGO IN 1866. THE GHICA6O POST OFFICE.
