Two weeks ago the noonday prayer meeting hsd attracted each number* that tne fec-me room of the Young Men's Christian Association, where U baa been held for th- pan seven ream, waa I Jound inadequate to accommodate!die attendance, and the audience room oi the F»«t Mklbodlsl Fnlaeonal Cburch. corner of Clark and Washing ton etreeia. was secured for Its accommodation.

Such was the character of the present meeting, and the sentiment of every heart should be that which Inspired the good psalmist as be poured out his heart in bis last and besntlfnl psalm of praise. Praise should swell every heart lor the inestimable gift of a Saviour, and for the Ssce bestowed to ns from the path of sin. He I en read a letter from Judge Culver, of Pontiac. 1 Illinois, giving an account of the revival which is progressing In Livingston County, in this Slate, anf extending to sections where there seemed at first lo be botutlle hope of eueew. In these two townships there had been one hundred and thirty four hopeful conversions and the work was deep ening in power. ......

A gentleman remarked that lor nine teen years be had bees a s cotter and an ungodly man, and mat one day whilst traveling on foot In Missouri, he was accosted by a Christian man who took tin to hie house, and was the means ot leading him to Christ. The meeting to-day will be led by Hev. W. C. Jackson, and will be con tinued loir week In the Clark Street Methodist Episcopal Church. DEPBiTITY. Dissipation ana Crime—Small Porsery.

To this end be bid labored for the estab- Tubmcnt ol the Liberal Christian League. The purpose was to inaugurate a service which shall interest and instruct. . . C. J. Hull. Esq., then spoke, bis subject being 44 Eight Veais Among the Fallen.*’ Twenty-one years ago, when ho arrived in Chicago, he visited, ou the second day, the Jail, tbe next day be bad visited a school, and on the first Sabbath he went to cbnrch. Since that day be had passed hta life In labor among >bc claps of people whom be first noticed In the city. Eight years slue* bo commenced visitations at the Brldcweil. excepting, perhaps, twelve San aaye, be bad been weekly there. The result of the luvc-tigatlons made daring this time bad con-- firtned him in the bellel that the sin and destitu tion of tbit city base themselves upon intern- Ecraucc. Fifteen thou ond and thirl)-five persons ad been arrested for drunkenness In the last I hllc months, aod tbe general feeling is that I tbe majority ol these are Irish. He desired to | show the fact, there were of these: Irish, 7,iW ; Americans 8,377, Germans 1,083, and children less than 20 jears of age 2.100. The inmates of the Bridewell, as they come from all nations, also come from all classes of society. Ho had seen sluing on a Bi ide *-eli bench a lawyer of great promise, by reason of his Intelligence, the brother ot ajndse, and now reformed ; a Itank clerk that was. who had been entrusted in Smiths' bank with hundreds of thousands of dollars, he bad also seen In that £' lace. These men were brought there as most of if-|r associates In prison were—by drink. The I diinklns lo the home circle was the first cause of this result, and yet the alcohol fur which I tbe wise, beer and cider Is made use of contains I no clement ot prosperity to the body in tbe forma- I tion of muscle. Here be deprecated the example seTby moderate drinkers. ' . , The use of tobacco he next touched upon. 01 15)9 of bis Bridewell parishioners that moraine, hat perhaps ten did not nse tobacco. Toe use of the weed be thought to be naturally connected with the drinking of whiskey* and be bad found Ural the crest majority ol convicts nae both, and both of these appetites be believed descended from parent to child. lie himself, who had not in twenty-nine years taurd a drop of intoxicating liquor, was com retied to dodge the temptation of drink, the ap petite for which his father had communicated to him The sppstitc being then congenita’ he would urge that no one is fallen ln*o the habit of drinking so deeply that be may not be rescued, or tbalbe is not worthy of it. lie remarked upon the number of rum shops tn tho city, stating that npon Clark street there ar* om;hundred and fifty of these legalized places or demoralization. 11c and others bad objected to the license system, and they were to d that theetty received an Income of $35,000 from I’, bnt against this he would set the $250,000 paid during the same time fur the PollcoDcpartment. Independent of this, there is the unchristian re soil of hypocrisy intbcaalool intoxicating driuka, which Is not licensed. . . lie bad an idea for a remedy, some had sug gested a bffib loom. He had tried this remedy m the Bridewell, and it had not removed lbs difficul ty. lie bad tried another theory, that of the me chanics’ shop, and that had been Insufficient. 1 Earnest prayer had been advocated to the same end. He had tried the efficacy < of this means. He attended the prayer meeting of Friday, and there he beard a , rich the owner of a large saloon, descanting 1 noon the aioa of Parle and Germany. He had tor roll, n his own city, and he left unheeded his own ratoon. The next moraine he read of the homi cide at 116 Dearborn aln-et,near to his friend’s ; ra oon. had become satisfied 1 that prayer alone would not remove the evil.. He believed the only cure lain total abstinence. To procure it is an agency must be created to operate among the childicn, and the agency must be from the men who have passed through the fire of Intemperance. These men most be lined up and encouraged and then placed in the front ranks of tho battle, fie would for mer recommend a United States law to cover every foot of territory wnlcb should make the sale oflmoxleating liquors a penitentiary offence; the second arrest to be treated to a hie sentence, or U tbc second punishment was less than that, the third oQcnce should be death. Be did not, how ever, expect to stop the evil by legislation any more other crimes are suspended, bnt be thought that the disease would be lessened as the crimes are kept some what under subjection by fear. He thought, too, that end) a law could be procured by the aid of the press, the pulpit and female suffrage, and the last ot these he looked npon as the moat efficacious agency. Mr. A. Green, a Swede, of Galesburg, who was introduced as a reformed drunkard, then related his experiences i u the nte of intoxicating drinks. He attributed his drunkenness to his father, who was a minister of the Gospel, and he stated that the result was that he found himself passing through all tho calaboosca ot Sweden. Based npon the experiences he underwent while he yielded to his appetites he made an argument In favor of tool abstinence. The meeting then closed. Tlie .Dearborn Street Murder. Senear, February 10,1967. To the Editors of the Chicago Times: Having heard yesterday l&alurdty) morning at about OH o'clock, for the first lime, that a nun hid been shot the night before In a bar and bil liard room on Dearborn street, and seeing in the morning papers my name connected with it, 1 wish to give a true and unvarnished statement of my connexion with It, and how I happened to he there at all. 1 lea my room-male In the early part of the evening, slating to him that I wished to go borne early, as 1 wanted (o get np early, In order to he down town at eight o'clock a. m., and told him I would meet him on Clark street, which he said be would do. I walled on Clark atreet until half put nine o'clock for him to come, wheal started out to find him and get him to come home, as 1 did not want to leave him, for 1 had the key, and if 1 went home wlthonthlm the folks In the boose would have to get up and let him In. 1 found him at 146 Dearborn street. I went np tobimandaskedblmUU was to-morrow morn ing that be Intended to meetme. Be answered. •*So, to-night.” "WelV’eald I, “ I waited until ten o'clock for yon, and now want to go home. Ho remarked that it was not len o'tlock yeL 1 tola him It only wanted ten minutes of ten o'clock. "Wcll,"uys be, "I want to gel a chance to speak to Wilson alone a minute, aud then I wilt go." 1 waited some time, and in the meantime Scho field and Ogden engaged In a game ot cards, Mr. Schofield coming ont, I believe, ioser of four games. They had drink* on each game. At the time of their sitting down to pliy cards there were some twelve or fourteen persons in the st loon. While they were playing cords 1 asked my room mate several times to go home, and was on the I mint several times of leaving him and going loroe alone, and abonli have done so, had it not, been torlho key. By the tune they had finished their (bur games of cards, it most nave been somewhere from half past eleven to twelve o'clock p. m., and not being able to get my room-mate started, 1 took a chair which was silting some distance back, say fifteen to twenty feet from the bar, in a retired pjaltion, walling for him to get ready to go. While sluing there, Schofield and Wright, considerably intoxi cated, cot fooling—Schofield using Wright very rough, so much so tba' some one told him lhat be would hurt him. They were at that time up close to toe bar, near the door which leads oat on to the street. Soon after this a casual remark was made which drew Wright’s attention to myself, and, as it were, all the pent up ire caused oy Schofield's rough usage, vented Itself upon me. Says he: “Yon son of a b —lean lick yon,” and made straight for me. 1 bad no Idea of bis Intending an aasanlt upon me aa 1 had not taken any put in their previous doings, but when be came oack atu made directly for mo 1 became aware that he meant harm. When he got near enough he struck at me and cllcched me, and dragged me ont toward the bar. I not being able, or at anytime Inclined towards fighting, tried only to escape from him without getting marked or Into trouble and notoriety, and in the straggle, which I think moat have been rather from the fierce and unprovoked aasanlt upon me. 1 went down on to tne floor, and he, and I think several others, on top of me, behind toe bar. I, all the while, trying only, not lo get bon and also trying to escape. When they were on top of me, 1 felt some ones boot, and thought they were kicktngat me. I snug ont “ take them oil me." and asked what 1 bad done. I finally got to the door, hut was so confused, that 1 ran against It, which impeded my progress, and detained me, which confused me allU more, as 1 was afraid they or he were stilt alter me. 1 finally got ont of the door, and ran as far as the comer of the Post Office, tod stopped a mo ment, to gather my scattered senses, and see bow badly 1 was hurt; hot In a fo* momenta 1 heard the voices of Schofield and Wright, and without looking round, thinking. In their drunken treaty, they were still after tne, i ran ronnd to the rear of the Post Office, and there walled lor some time— say ten minute*—when I started and went directly home. As 1 said before, I knew nothing of the pistol being fired, or there being a man shot, null) the next morning. 1 met a m| " on Madison street, who said a man waa shot round on Dearborn street last ntfibt. . Relative to the testimony before tbe Coroner. I think It exonetates me from all blame, and in this communication I wish to state bow 1 happened to be is aucb company?*! 1 profess to be a gentle man, and am not In the habit of associating with gamblers, confidence men, &c. 1 state this that tbe pnbhc may know that, in this instance, there is an exception to the say ing, “ that a poison U known by the company be keeps."

TUB LIKU TUNNEL, The Last Fxcundon Through It. The very last excursion of the season, or of any season, through the great Lake Tunnel,was made on Saturday by a party of gentlemen who. In com mon with many citizens, had a laudable desire to explore the bore once more before the roar and nuh of waters liozn crib to shore should close the door to human foot. The tracks are to be taken up In the early part ot this week, so there can he lo more underground excursions to the crib. Those who have not seen that circular wall of brick must henceforth be content to believe it there. Those who hare seen it will never see It again. The two fleet steeds—w*e mean the faith ful moles—who have for some two years back been moving to and fro in the depths like a pair of shuttles, helping to put together that vvondertnl hose pipe, will mix again in the upper strata of society; their occupation down below U gone. They hive finally rested from their labor, and the waters follow them. It was appropriate that the last visit to the tun nel should oc made by s party of gentlemen, the representatives of a class the most n*tcd to right ly appreciate tbe magnitude ol t&e nndcrtaWng mccbanico, architects, builders and contractors. I* was Alderman Carter's doing. Hewa-deslroua that these men should descend In a body to enjoy a eight of this triumph of engineering skill, and with this view be invited a select company to pay the last visit to the interior. It wonld have been a cold day in deed for a Journey over land, or a voyage over sea, but it was tolerably pleasant under both sea and land, and agreeably suggested an approach to the central fires. Tbe company assembled at the mouth of the shore abaft, where they awaited with eagerness the word “ go’*from Alderman Carter, who bad undertaken to marshal the boat through tie dark tube. To most of the patty It was quite a new sensation, and various were the surmises as to bow they would go in and how come out again, whether It might be February weather or If they might not expect a Fourth of July in tbe realms oclow. They soon disappeared from the upper air by half dozens, and seated themselves as comfortably us circumstances would permit in the little boxes drawn by the patient mules. Tbe process of going through the bore Is a very simple one, and wohld nor be at all exhilarating were 11 nollhal your imagination Is potently ex cited, and yon are liberty to imagine that the wild team Is plunging with you down to the dwelling place of everlasting night. But if the uccy has free play, so has not the poor tenement of clay, for you are forced into a most uneasy position with your knees up to your chin, and the only thing a plain matter-of-laci mao can do Is to try and estimate‘be rate of progress by watching the while morks on the side, or looking at tbe wet spots hero and there on the roof. It look thirty-five minutes to go from the shore to the cnb, and there an acceptable collation was provided for the party, including the opening and emptying of sundry hollies ot champagne. While these were being discussed, Ala. Carter took occasion to comment in commendatory terms on tbe mag nitude ot the idea which had thus been so success fully realized, and paid a handsome-compliment to air. Dut), who was present. Tbe healtn of Dull & Gowan was drank, tbe health ot Hr. chea hrongb, and the health of tbe visitors collectively. And so. alter passing a pieasant quarter of an hour, admiring the wonders of the crib, and look ing out upon the Übc, which presented a bound less expanse of small round pieces of floating Ice, very Uko buckwheat cakes, but not quite so hot, thty once more disappeared down the shaft, and took scats In tne underground railway. T&e way home was enlivened by choruses of 44 Johnnie comes marching Home,” and “John Brown.” which made the bride walls re-echo with a sound which may not be ht-ard within them again. Every oue was delighted with the visit. In the afternoon another parly went out to tbe crib, ac companied by Ur. Chesbrongh, and this was the last Journey. A JUKI EOIIOLOGICAL QTJERE. A Question Asked and Not Answered. A correspondent signing himself “ Philos ” hu got Into a metorologlcal “quandary." lie is puz zled abont the weather. It Is a troublesome sub ject lo him, as so many thousands have found it before him. He says: “ Admitting that the axis of the Fouls always perpendicular to the plane of its motion, and the Inclination of the earth’s axis to the plane of Its orbit. In Us annular course, la periodically the rame—and also that the surfaces of evaporation, and the polar and the equatorial currents of the wind,are the same—will some one of yonrlcarncd correspondents please explain the causes why the tempcia’nres, rains, winds and the seasons of one year are so vailent from those ot another»” Tbltos Is evidently what hu name expresses—a lover—and bolus so Is blind, as all lovers are. Wodonotlntend this as an Insult, nor should It be taken as one. The fact is that seekers after this kind ot knowledge arc all In the dark. Mot a simile ray ot light has ever yet Illumed their path, unless it were that of some ignit ratvit theory whose deceptive flickering* led the wanderer into a sttli deeper bog than that from which he first saw It, and lell him in deeper darkness than ever. Thcsnbjectof meteorology has been studied by l * pbilo« 1, -ophers m every age during the past four thousand years, but It is s science now only as regards the'geceral average of a few facts, and the probable sequence ot certain phenomena to a few uncertain causes. Wc know meteorological bets only, by their general averages. We. know.that a certain amount of non falls in a riven locality, “ one year with another." hat we do not know, nor can we predicate that rain win fall at any specified Instant or on any specified day: nor can we tell what will be the quantity; thonch gener ally we expect heavy rains in the harvest season, and bnt showers in the spring. The barometer indicates tain, (sometimes days) In advance, bnt oar foresight thas gained Is not Uie foreknowledge of primary causation; It is simply the pre-recog nition of an accompanying fact, os when we seea pennon far away at sea, we know that a vessel Is oci catb, though wc cannot see the vessel and may not see It for many boar*. More; It may pass away without our seeing the hail at all. Wc recognize a connection between two sets of phenomena, and consider (hem as standing >n the relation of cause and efiect, bat the sequence does not always bold good. We know that generally the coldest season of the year Is at some one to two mouths distance from the winter solstice, and we think we can account for it as we account for the nanal greatest dally best—two boars (more or leu) put noon—on the gradual warming or cool ing theory.. Bnt the time or intensity of the great est cold la not always the same in the same local ity, even under the same conditions uf wind and clearness of atmosphere, and quality o( terial moisture, and amount of deflection of tbc mag nctomctric Index. The sequence is not a certain one—that is, it is not certain to ns— though none of ns donht the absolute operation of law in these matters, regu lating every little variation of temperature and moisture and electrical condition and venial ve locity and direction in obedience lo causations as accurately known to higher Intelligences as are the cause and iffect of the simplest mechanical motion. Ills thatweare ignorant, and not that there Is no law. bball we ever attain to a comprehension of these mysteries! Pertaps. We already know much ot the physical laws which control the move ments of that great ocean of water which lies be low; and one of the latest achievements of Investi gation has been the discovery that the two great oceans of air and water are counterpoises. Have we In this truth tne else to the unexplored laby rinth of meteorological science! Probably. . If our correspondent asked thcqnesuonlu good film, we regret to be obliged to say that no man in the present day esn give the answer to the problem propounded. If be he disposed to in vestigate as well as (Inquire, we commend to him the study of meteorology as being per haps that ouc depattznem ol scientific research In which least Is known, while the greatest amount of material Ilea leady to hand. Thousands of facts lie scattered around, and hundreds of corrcl a Ives or phenomenal groupings are ” familiar In the month aa household words/’ hut the master mind has net ret arisen which can grasp these facts and arrange them in thelrapproprlateplacos, give to each tie true value in the long chain ot physical sentiences, and. deduce the operative causes v bkh govern and control these trains'of phenomena. lhat master mind has yet to arise. We do not believe that any of the secrets of nature can be eternally hidden from mortal ken. We have snatched too many Jewels from the mine where they lay hidden under monntalns of Ignorance, and guarded by the griffins of fprcjaulee,to de spair ot being able ultimately to exclaim Eureka with regaid to any and all the solutions to the problems which now vex ns, and keep reminding ns tbatwi are purblind mortals. It may be for ant correspondent to lilt the veil which now hides the unknown Unlbs ot meteorological science, and make his name immortal.

It appears that tho suit Is to recover far the loss or the service and society of the wife, by resson of her alleged estrangement and seduction by IDO defendant. The plstnUO In tho emt is the keeper of a restaurant on Dearborn street, and the defendant is said to be a wealthy mer chant residing in the West Division. The special allegation of the declaration la that aimtnal con nection took place between defendant and the Kite ot the plaintiff on the flfleeuth day of Seilcmbctlost, and at divers limes and sundry Pl AUhesaroe time and in the same Court, Wil kinson tiled a bill tor divorce, setting up, of course, the charge of adultery as specified in his declaration to the solr far damages. The New Steam Generator. To the Editor oi the Chicago Tribune; In jour issue of the slfi instant, Mr. Danford again spreads blmsclt on the absurd charge that my generator Is an infringcincnlnpon his patent, I nave no inclination to annoy your readers with a dreary repetition of alterations, and what la trne or nntrno In them, bat will simply repeat, in different version ana with some additions, the mam points noted In my* letter of Janaary 39th, Id oioer to have this matter fblly understood: 1. There are old extinct patents on generators. The patents of Mr. Danford, as well as mine, cor* er, therefore, la the meaning of the law, mere Im provements. McCurdy, in 1634, used a dry heated vessel (a horrixonal tace) in combination with force pump and water-injecting pipe, for the pro dnctlon o> steam out of spray water. Bis genera tor, from some reason or other, Is abandoned, and baa become public property. 3. Mr. Danford hits upon the plan of employing tn place of that horizontal tube, or more spacious vessel, to allow.lbe rejected spray to become aup«r- fleam before touching metallic surface. * Otherwise his operations and combinations are the same aa McCurdy’s. He does not claim a pe culiar form, because such claim would be vague and worthless; nor does he claim (In America! the principle, because the patent officers could not allow any such claim. He simply claims— the primitive combination of tinted generator, force pump and waer.Mecting ptjtet, tons quali fied, that with proper adjustment of the quantity uf water Injected, tuperneated tteam will be pro duced brwuKflotefy. The first part of this culm cannot be taken by Itself, because it la old. it Is onir good aa a patent noder the conditions set forth in the subsequent Qualification, wherein It is specified that steam must not only be produced Immediately, bat be at once tupetiUafed. Mr. Danford most undoubtedly would have preferred terms ol broaacr compass, as for Instance the word “sfrom,” in place of Lk tupeth-.a ! *<3 tleam," but the patent officers were extremely rigid In ob serving the regulations of the office. The want or healing surface in the Danford Generator must be supplied by higher tempera tures of ihe fire, which is at once Wasteful of feel and dtairucUve to the vessel. S. 1 hit upon the plan of taming the very tube of McCurdy’s upright. To obtain betting surface I combine a number of them with a Joint receiv ing vessel. In those tubes I produce steam which is tatur ated, aa the opening of a try-cock will convince everybody, and the process of superheating, here made distinct from the production uf the steam, takes place in the receiving vessel arranged above the tope of the tubes. My tubes arc nar row, contain no volume of euperneated euam-~±t spray in them touches metallic surface. Ttuy are SlcCurdy'i rubes. I do not directly produce evperfuoted tttam, nor do I produce ft Im/usdi ately. 4. 1 will cow ask the fair question, whether common reason and common sense are so scarce that nonody can peiceivc the absolute distinctions ot my generator aa compared with Mr. Danford’a ? Is therebetween (hem the slightest shadow of similarity beyond toelr common origin! I trust Mr. Danford alone here makes an exception. Con trary to bia theories, wishes and expectations, the new generator operates and performs admirably. This Is a dreadful tact, too drcadftil, Indeed, to be

true. The brain becomes ‘‘superheated Immedi ately,” the *en«es turn blind, the seven McCurdy tubes stand there. In the vision of Sir. Dantord, the ghost* of seven Danford generators. Macbeth saw the ghost of Btnquo; nobody be side him did. 5. In my letter to the Timet, of January 33d, I announced that I am now building another gen- crator with eighty-four tabes, which 1 shall term the ciretrfailoii pentraior, in distinction from the piosent combination penera'or. la the '•tier a* above stated, the prodaction take* place .in (he tabes below mod lie superheating la done la the Teasel aborc. In the circulation generator this principle is reversed. The production is to take place in the vessel chore and the superheating, by means o! a peculiar circulation. In the lubes or/oir, which will be snnonnded by Are. This amusement will sire me more thin doable the healing surface sad allow a still easier and more durable construction ol the apparatus. Mr. Danfort may, meanwnile, study the problem and decide whether bo shall see a big ghost of one, or eighty-four small ghosts ol eighty-four Danford generators. Let me, in conclusion, tender my host thank* to Mr. Daciord for haring so kindly jriren my gen erator the desired notoriety. F. Bxuxisx.
