A Fu«sDat.—Yesterday brought a tew hoars of fine weather—a noticeable phenomenon, ano one for witch wo cannot be too thankful. Still greater cause will there be for thankfulness *houla the fine spell continue. Judging from the expe rience of the past tew months, however, there Is not much ground to hope that yc«teiday was any otber than one of those spasmodic intervals of cjirliudc taken advantage of by old Sol to gather hla forces tor another and fiercer onslaught.

And with rcrard to llitr, let me say that my first real conception of a nark lor nucsgo wa, in ('sllro'nla, on the Sierra Nevada Mountains. There X mot Professor Fro?

I foot ol land within throe miles ol Its proposed limits. I have no direct la lerrsl In it In Ihe world; and yet I have been anx mus fur the passagei oj aotue bill like this over sln.e tbsiidv. first fhliy dovciopod between my self and Professor Olmstead. on the heights of the California monnUuii. I can say, in all sincerity, lhal 1 don t believe there la au/stea'. In this bill 1 'believe ills n good anuhonest old, and tho nest wo can get. Now, as to iho appointments being made hv tho Supreme I'uort a* d lln? Governor, I can sar that It was thought necessary by some of ibe tuatcUj ****** who have been In created In >his Mil, that the L.ommirfloncrj should bo apuoioied by eomo auUiorlty which should be dirconnecicd liom all our (oral interests. An objection wav miidetortclr being appointed by tho Superior Comi pi the city o! Chicago, because o«o of llieo lived In the vicinity when.- ico park is |o be loca ted, and there aro olbcr reasons lu regard to local inierttt*, which will bu readily perceived by every person before me, and therefore it was iboughL be»l to place the power of appointment in some persons wbo shall be above all local -and all polit ical Interests, and therefore It waa that the Gov ernor and the Judges of (sc Supreme Court were *rlecled, being equally divided as to polllfcs, and rcmuvtd lar from all suspicions of Improper indu ct cc. And though same Senators may object to this mode of making appointments. Lhote were the reasons which Inflnei.ceo the framers of this bill in so amnclng this feature of the bilk Then, as to ibe matter of tbe large drbu hang ing over tbe riryvof Chicago, referred to ny tbe Senator. It is tine that wo arc largely In debt, and that va>lons projects now in contemplation mar increase these debu; but tU- bill only relates to tbe South side of the city, where probably half tbe property ana ha'f tbe Inhabitants are situated, and we prooose pimply to tax ourselves lor tnc expense that may be Incurred. Tbe other por-" tlun of the dty la not Interested (n It in that sense. As tbe honorable Senator from Cook (Mr. Ward) has very fairly stated tbe matter to yon, his portion of that district Is not included m any taxes that may crt-c Irom this bill, and are there fore not directly Interested In u. . We ask simply to hil'c the privilege of h iving’ Hus matter laid fairly before the people at their next r-pflng elec tion. Let ibem have the privilege ol voting upon the qcesGon, whether or not such n park l-» di *lred by those who will bo taxed under tills bill, sad that feature Is In It, and such an expression of the people Is made a precedent to any park. Mr. TntcntH. A ; low me to ask tbe honorable Speaker a question. Do I understand (bar tbe people in’crt-sicd In this park lax tbemvelves alone, and donot levy taxes upon other district*? TbeMTASEB. Certainly. Onr fni: da have come In and examined the see whether (here was any objectionable lealuce in it, and a particnlar friend of mine, one of tbe best lawyers in tbe Stale, Mr. Walker, now sitting on my right. Las carefully looked over tbe bill, and be assures me that It is substantially tbe same as was agreed upon by the citizens of Chicago, in a sort of large commlitee,a week ago last Saturday. It waa aub mltudtoaoumberofthe best citizens or South Chicago, and «lth tbe exct-mlon of a few “old Lcnke” w bo always oppose cverv scheme and plan of this kind, It was cordially approved. As for its bcirga real e*ta'e speculation, the bill provides that the Commissioners shall not own the proper tv they take, or it they have any interrst in it tho assessment Is (o tie made according to the usual mode of condemning property for other pnbllc pmposoa. Chicago is to become a great city. While some may seem to be afraid of the expense, (as bas been slated here), Chicago is larger to-day by 50.000 inhabitants, than New York was in IS3U And yet Chicago has not to-day, w!(b all ber greatness and prosperity, a good country road, with tbe exception, perhaps, of Wabash avenue avd a few other slice's. VTc wish to make Chicago tbe great city of tbe Ni rtbwesi, not only in her commercial Interests, but in her Uterarr and artistic features. We wish to draw von there just the same as mm are drawn to New York. We have not a good breathing place, a rood park there now to draw you to our city, as the Central Park draws every stranger who visits New York. We are prond of uor city, and we hope that you are proud of It too. We hope that the State Is proud of it, and we want some beautiful place for you to visit when you come to Chicago. We want it so that when you gentlemen make yoor fortunes and are canvass ing whether you will retire to New York or Chi cago, that we can have that there wblcn will In duce yon to come to Chicago. fApplan?e.| And we simply want the privilege or voting npon this subject to see whether we will tax ourselves to have a grand park that will bean honor to this State and the Northwest, ai the Central Park of New York city honors ihat city and State. And this is the question which we wish to vote npon foromselves at tbenext election. We really feel as if nobodr should object to our having that privilege. We have incorporated a provision (hat tbe Commissioners may treat with the man who own tbe property around the park, and so scute, in that manner, some of those conflicting interests which have entered into the compromise which this mil pte.-eiila—as for instance with tbe Drexela, who have broo spoken of-hero. Now perhaps In collision of Interests, and in this personal feeling wbicb has arisen with regard to ibis park, things may have been e&id wnlch should not have been said, and 1 doubt not 'bat I have done so myself. Hr. Wabd— that explanation satisfies me; that is all I at-k. Ike S pea Km. The bUI provides that some ar rangement can be made of tats kind, fhe Com missioners may bay the la»d. and I bare no oonbt that this will bo the result in moat cases. But there is no steal in the bill, gentlemen. I di«l not defirc exactly this nllll, but it is the best tbat can be bad. This lak.s part of that Drexel property, and leaves the Commissioners free to arrange for other onrUoas of It. lam reierrlng to tbemost beantifnt property for the purposes of a park around onr aty, and which one of the most accomplished gentlemen of the old citizens of Chicago, and at one time a member or this Legislature, now core to hie account, originally prepared for each a purpose. I have do doubt tbat some arrangement will be made by the Com mlsaioners to sccnro a portion ot It. it seems to me <hat when the Senate comes to an understand ing about the matter they will be pleased to go lor tnr bill. Mr. Metcalt. Does the'blll.msy I Inquire, con tain a power for a condemnation of the land? The Spcakeb. It does. That feature of It la copied from the New York Central Park Bill. It Is pot likely It will cvegaced to be exercised. It is expected and intendedthat seven of the most dis interested and public spirited men in onr ettr are to be chosen Commissioners, and that tho*e meu will act lor the public, and, in every way, tor the Interest of those whose property mvy betaken. Olhciwlsclt was thought tbat the bill would be Oiicatcd. Of course they will pay the full value of the property. 1 am convinced that If tbc Sen ate fully understood the matter they would at once pass the bill now before them. Mr. Wa&p. Since the remarks of the Speaker I deftre to say that it is more a combination of cot.Hicllng interests, for tbc pnrposo of land spec nlation, for the people. He was not against parks generally. His position wag taken from the request ol the Slayer, several Alderm>-n, and many of me most prominent citizens in Chi cago. Ifanyblll wetclopass.theoriginal blllwos better than this. He was pleased and satisfied with the statement made by the speaker In reference In the moMves which bad actuated him (Mr. Ward). He did not live in the distilct it was id, but be fell that be was legislating for the people at large. The conception of a park was a grand one—lf was made ip a picturceqne'and romantic place. andlbongWie thought tee Lieutenant Governor war mistaken, bat from respect to him, be (Mr, Ward.) was willing to allow it to be passed. If, In view ot the facts elicited, tbe Senate was will- tag to allow seven Commissioner* to issue the bonds of Chicago to the extent of sl,uuo,ooo, they might do bo. He objected to the mode in which the bill had been drawn. It was a sort of *own meeting bill instead of being tbe result of the deep delibera tion of a sound lawyer. It was possible to throw guards about it which would protect the people more, and this ought to bs done. Lieutenant Governor Bsosg said that they would not Issue bonds to the extent of a million of dol lars in the next five yesn. Aflerl some farther discussion, tbe question be ing upon tbe pa*snge ot tbe bll, tbc yeas and nays were called, and tbe bill was passed—yeas 17, nays 4. BRICK ISA KING* old and New Processes—Wet and Dry Clay—Xlxc Challenge. The subject of brick making it attracting can tlderable attention at tbe present time. Bricks bare long been scarce and high in Chicago, and eonsct{Ueoly lamb- r has been more need in build ing the shells of hooves than Is consist-.nl with tbe public safety, durability of tbe atrnctores, or the i-lability of insurance companies. Some have been made in Chicago—peihaps twelve or ftiteea mil lions oytar—and many neve been imported from oiter place*, Including Milwaukee. Those made there are cotaldcred bj some people to be letter than oilrrs. ’ibetr manufacture U quite expen sive here and clsewbere.

In spite ol ihoe difficulties many stdl prefer to use backs lor building, and the demand Is increasing. Within two or three years many ex pcrlmcnts have been tried for lessening the cost. The old process of hana-uuking list teen almost ignored. Mauy persona have witnessed this process when a man stands In the clay bank and throws out the dav into a heap whert'itis welled and tempered likc?mortarand wheeled upon a bench. There a man takes up a f ortloa or the clay anapnts it into a mould, mak r*K the dlit fiy thicker than rparkafroman iron t«r on an anvil at the first stroke of (be namtner.

D ASHINGTOVS BIIITHDAV. lih observance— Fenian Parade—and Ball. Yesterday, the anniversary of the birth of our lmm‘ rtal Washington, was celebrated In Chicago, and probably In all the cities of the Union, very much as all such days are, namely, with respect. civility, reverently, bat with no great amonnt of outward demonstrations. An observant eye might bare seen that the city wore a semi holiday aspect. The banks were closed, the Board of Trade was not in session, a great many persons who usually are very busy on Friday were very Idle. Yet there was no general manifestation. It Is Impossible to get np any enthnritsm on birthday anniversaries how ever great and worthy the individual may have been who becomes the object of onr adoration. The Fourth of July seems to exhaust all our energies in the matter of celebrations, and no other epoch in the year can hope to compete with It. Every citizen honors in his heart the name of George Washington. But when he is expected every vear to quit bis business tor a day In order to make a formal acknowledgment of ms admira tion, without any compensation in the shape of amusement, tbe enthusiasm is apt to wane. So it was throughout the aty yesterday. We lifted our hats to the memory of tbe Father of bts Country, t aid “Great name all hall,” and passed on to our oidlnary avocations. ILd It not been for tbe Fentaus the day would have passed over without any outward rccoecPlon whatever. The sous of the Green Isle, the warlike portion of them, taking advantage of the occasion to get np a public re view of thexr regiment, made the streets lively for a time with a show of muskets and with the strains of music. The closing of tbe schonUMoo, ban some influence on tbc general aspect of a flairs In tbe city, at least In certain quarter* of 1L Tbc Court House snd fhe Court House square swarmed with bands of children, and Hut rusty, dull old edifice resounded with unwonted sounds of mirth, much to tbc annoyance of the legal profession, which was greatly shocked by tbe lutruslun. Tbe Fenian demonstration was tbe event of tbe day. During the past winter the regiment has received new uniforms of tbe Fenian regulation style, consisting of a dark blue fatigue cap with green trimmings: green coat, cavalry pattern, with yellow trimmings, and light panto, tbe same as worn bv onr vulnn-cers. Tbe men ate armed with (be Pittsburgh rlile. The unmtur who turned out In procession was about si 0. forming a well ordered and highly re spectable looking company. The following arc the names of tbe field and Hue officers in the or der in which they paraded: Colonel—James S. Cosgrove; Lieutenant Colo. nel-John Dunn. The Logan Circle, represented by thirty-one men, was cotmrandid by Captain John Melville. The Corwin Fuelkcre of the Thomts Davis Circle, unmlMring seven ty-fiv - men, was com* manced by Captain Michael F Bell; the Emmet Guards, by Captain M. A. Condon; the liberty Guards, Captains James O'Connor; the Ktcham Guards, I.lrnlenart Patrick Mooney. The procession formed at the Fenian Armory at the corner of WciU and Randolph street* a boat eleven o'clock In the forenoon, and headed by lanctn s field Band, consisting of thirty pieces, marched through the p*tncipal streets of the city, the procession was rather small, considering the number of Irishcltlc i.s residing here. Bat the company of soldiers only formed tho nucleus of a tmcbiy Uiiong o> unoiganlzed cllucns who lol loped Item, or rather suronnded them, on all •■ides. Wherever thev went, the sidewalks as* fUmel the aspect of St. Patricks Day. 1 he celeoration, so far as the Fenians were con cern-d, was happily closed i>y a ball given by them at the old Board of Trade Halt in the even ing. Ibe nlacc was filled with a brilliant com l-any, and the festival was conducted in a most oideily manner. The soldiers dotted their nut foitns and appealed in civilian costume, and It is needless to say that every one extract*! the gieatest possible enjoyment from tbe gathering. An elegant supper was clvcn in the course of the evening, alter discussing which the festive party again Joined In the dance, which was kept up till au early boor this monituc.

C, Lamed. The following has been addressed by Don. E. C. Lamed ** to the members of the Sena'c and House of Representatives of the State 01 1 lllnois." The Gas Bill passed the Douse by a deciacd ma Jotiiy on Thursday, and pending the motion to re consider, the House adjourned: The undersigned, (chairman of a committee appointed at a public meeting of the citizens of Chicago. Inelrncted to advocate the passage of a bill, now before the General Assembly, to author ize the city of Chicago to manufacture and supply gas for said city, begs leave to state, that the bill in question is one which ailecta only the cily of Chicago; that it haa been approved by' the people In a public meeting; by the Common Council by an almost nnanlmoua vore; by almost (be entire press; by (be petitions of several thousands of our citizens. Including our leading business non and largest property-holders, as well as the mechanics and working-men; and that if is not to become a law until, after a full mtetiigaiUm of the exj-edlency of the mature, by a Commhtiouprondeafor that purpotty U hat bun adopted by a majority of the people. ‘•it was difficult for the undersigned to under stand bow the Legislature could be induced to refuse to the people of Chicago the right to deter mine lor themselves by a vote of the people a matter approved as above staled, and affecting nu other portion of tbc State. Out as the contin uance of the present gas monopoly la of such im : mense value to the gas companies, and they are here opporlpe the measure. It is necessary that I should explain to the members of the legislature the importance of the passage of this bill to the interests of the city and the citizens of Chicago. “Gas Is now supplied by two companies—the Chicago and the People's uas Light sod Coke Companies. The tint supplies the North and South Divisions, and tbe otoor the West Division of the city. Tbe charter of tbe first named com pany bas no limits or restrictions whatever. They can charge what price they please, and are no way made subject to any public control, eltncr as to lighting the streets or the measurement or quan tity of gas In the coarlcr of the People's Com pany, as originally passed, this defect was sought io be remedied, and the Common Council were authorized to regulate of gas. But subsequently ibis company, by some means, got through an amend ment preventing any ezercl oof sneb control over tbe price, by tbe city, for ten years, and prohibit ing Item from ever reducing It below three dol lars a thousand. “ihe cty is now being fnml-bed on the North and Sooth Sld*-s, under a contract mvle In May, 1359, and which expires in May, 1869, by which the Gas Company bound themselves to tnrnlsh gas to the dty at $2 a thousand, and to the citizens at s*.so per thousand, tor the term ol the contract. lUe company ascertaining subsequently that so Taras the citizens were concerned, thl- contact could not be euiorccd by law. they raised Ihe price to citizens to $S 50 per thousand, where it now continues. "This was done in tbe face andjeyes of their own solemn engagement in w tiling, and shows in a striking manner bow unsafe It is to trust to the honesty or tair dealing of a corporate monoooiy. “As soon as this contract with the city expires it will bo lu tbc power of the company to raise tbc price to eucb a sum as they shall choose to de mand. and. unless the city comply, to cat off tbe pas from the public street? and bnildings and leave tbe city In darkness. They will. If this bill is not passed, have the absolute control of the matter ri their own bands. “An increase ol price to $6 per thousand, (the price below which the West bide charter prohibits a reduction,) would enhance the cost of public gas UK) per cent, aud.arid nearly SIOO,OOO annually to the expenses of the city. The citizens, too, are entirely at the mercy of these monopolies. In other cities they have in their charters been made subject to the public control; but la cur city they have unbounded powers, and can charge wbstthey please, glvcjnu such quality as they please, and measure toe quan tity consumed in their own way, and the citizens have no remedy. Gas has become an article of public and private necessity in onr large cities, and snch an article should not be loft subject to such a monopoly. “It has been found impossible to correct the evil by competing lines, because tbe narrow confines oraebectw)iliio’,ln addition to tbe water and sewer pipes, admit of more than two lines ol gas pipes at the utmost; and If there are two rival companies, either the stronger swallows np the weaker, or the two enter Into combination. The only possible relief therefore. In cates where, by ihe charters of tbc comoanles (as In Chicago), they are wholly Independent of all pub lic control, is to give the city power to supply Us gas for itself. In the same manner as it doe* water. “The bill now oilcied gives the rightto the city of Chicago to maunfactnre and supply gas by the same Board of Pnbllc Works, and in tbe same way, substantially, as It supplies water *o the city. Tbe bill provides that tbc pas shall bo supplied at a price which shall cover tbe cost of Its manufacture, the Interest on the fund expended in providing the works, nnd of a sinking fundto pay the d-tbts: and any amount advanced temporarily by the city, out of the general land, to pay Intel est on tbe bonds expended in constructing tbe works before they are in operation, (uroriacd the present com panies should elect cat to sell their works to tbe city), Is <o be repaid subsequently oat of the rev mms of the gas works; so tbat the whole cost tells exclusively upon tbe consumers of gas. In css tbc gas companies choose to enter Into a contract with the city to continue to supply the gas to the city and citizens on lair term*, as to price, mcarnrenxnt, etc, the bill provides that the city may delay entering upon Che manufacture so lone as snch contract is faithfully obseved. Tbc companies arc now charging ns $3.50 per thousand. Tbe actual cost, after careful investi gation. Is believed not to exceed $1.59. It was admitted by Alderman bh«ckford (who stated that he bad been permitted to examine the com pany's hooks.) that it d'd not exceed (3 per thou •3/a. Ihe whole amount supplied (or 1-61 by tte Toute Side company, according to tbe returns at tbe United States Revenue office, was over two hundred million eet, of which oi.ly twenty-seven millions were famished the city; snowing that on one hnndico and scvemy-thrcp million fed *hey were admh’ed to be charging?! Mo^erand above cost. “If we suppose the cost to be fl.SOpertbO'.. sand, exclusive of t cpairs, whxb would be a force estimate-, and lake the entire consumption of tbe pa» tyear, two nundredand fifty million-of feet, as a basis.and allow an annual Increase of consump tion of sixteen per cent, which is found bv expo* nonce to be a reliable estimate, acd allow aa the con of works acd pipes the sum oftroand a hall millions of dollars, whi'ii 1? believed to ue (Sr mote than nlll be needful. and allow eight per cent irtervst on such anionnt.it will befonnd tnat the city,after redncinc the prlccofgaajlpertbou- Bund, wti) In etcht years nalizc a rain to the diy and citizens ot over two millions ol dollars, to be applied to the repair and extension of tbe works and the payment of the debt. Any member can make (be calcnla'ion tor himself. “The people of Cincinnati have voted, by over ten thousand majority, to purchase tbe pa'-works of that dty, and take the sup plying of caa into their own hands. A con-mince appointed by tbe diy •( Boston Lave, after a very extended and careful invest!- cation, by sworn witnesses, unanimously ex pressed tbe opinion that it ms expedient for the city to take tbe business Into their own bands. In tbe city of Manchester, in England, containing a population of over 80. ,000 people, tbe gas works bare, from tbe first, been owned and ran by ibe city. In tbe dty of Philadelphia, where it lim been coder public control, under a system objectionable in many respects, it baa yet, in : spile of these defects, proicd a great success; ! and tbe official report or 1' Cb concludes by saying ‘that the trustees desire lo fcall the especial at temioc of councils to the uniformly weeestjul manner In which the sifolrs ol this tens t hare been rotdnrlcd for a period of thirty years ;* and that the Ircasnret’s report for the same year shows a profit ot ICfG.ooo—leaving, alter tbe payment of iiiKrest and slcktnc fond, a net baiarce of over . IfflO.lCO to Ibe cndilofibe general fund of the I diy. ■ I “This snmmaryof facts win show Ibe great importance of the matter and tbe large extent to nbicb 11 aflects tbe Interests of oar aty and oar citizens, and It is for tbe legislature to say wbeth tribe peot-le of Cblraro shall or shall not have the power, by their votes, to determine this im portant matter for themselves, or whether the Ixculature, by rt-insin* to pass this bill, will leave them to the unrestricted monopoly of the ns companies, without any means of resistance or pi election. “ It would seem that the reasonable request of our people lo be permitted to regulate tbls matter, which aflects to one but themselves,—a request endorsed by the united voire ol our City Govern m« nt, and bv sevt n out oi nine of the entire dele si'loo from Cook County—abonld not be regarded at tbe instance and for tbe sole benefitol a private, moneyed, cortorste monopoly. •• 1 bis bUi does not take away from tbo existing cas companies any right or pmllege which has been coni rred on them. It simply gives to the city ard people of Chicago, for the general pub licbenefit, the lame powers which the Legisla ture hare given to these corporation* for their own private advantage. “Any siatementa or Intimations to the effect Cat this bill is anything else than just what It porporla lobe, or that any private or personal onject Is Involved In ri, are utterly wlthontfonn datlon. They are simply laleeana slanderous im putations thrown out by mote seeking to secure the cuPtinnsnco ol the gas monopoly, tar <be pur pose, if poeslble, of prejudicing the minds of members against the measure.” RELIGIOUS INTELLIGENCE.
