PUBLIC PARKS. A Look at the Subject, Beginning with the Creation, and Running all Over the Cirlllzed World. 1 Tbe following article, from a correspondent who evidently understand*the subject oi Public Parks, both past and present, will be read with interest:! .■ThVillon °f a pnWic Pitt, or rut,, 1, the c.ty of Chicago, on s scat* proportionate to iU fa inicgroaih. Its subject which at thistimels at tracting, among our citizen*, a good degree of attention, and while they are agreed npoo the ne cessity of snch tn object they only dlfler as to tho most eligible mooe ol accomplishing it. Ibe remarks, therefore, which we propose to swbroli upon Parka, regarded (tom a sanitary, uioiau arid economical point of view, wo trust will not bv deemed Inopportune, but trill be can didly weighed by our dozens, Paika have peen aptly termed the lungs of a city. They are imvaaticallv the people’s gardens —places to which tho overtasked labirer and me chanic of the overcrowded city can, with bis wite and children, resort to breathe the breath of God’s pure air. Inhalo 'he odors of fresh, bloom ing flowers, and enjoy the pleasures of a rural re treat on a larger seal*, ana far richer in vegetable tonna, than In tbe gardens created by mere pri vate opulence. That the people of this country have a keen lore of nature and the beautiful tn att la evidenced by the success of the Central Park,fm New York, and other Parka In this country. Thli feeling It ex tending, and the ordinary squares which ate found in neatly ail the dlles, as population longer satisfy their longings, resulting In the tai- tog oat of bnndteds ot acres In a style proportion ate vtth the hopes ami expectations of the future of the locality. The immense throng that daily resort lo men places, not simply the millionaire or tbe aristocratic merchant, bur tbe labor-j, the mechanic, aud those from tbe humblest walks of life, tbe decoronaness of tbelr beaa- \lor, no carving of names, no plucking ol covers, no trampling on the greensward, no mutilating ol shrubbery, all attest taelr populari ty aid beneficial Influence. Can we not have eiicha re*onln Chicago} Untrue ibatwe have not that relief and depression of soil, ol ledgy tockßLd oeep valley, which are (o be found in the Central and other Paris of this country; but we can have ample drives, gravelled walks, fountains, rakes and all the forms of vegetable and animal life, which have be*n acclimated in onr latitude. We can have a Park or Parks, each ofwbich shall be the ornament asdprtdi of tbe clly. where by easy access, our people can eajoy the beauties of nature and all tbe pleasures of landscape gardening. It we aeaiyze <be lonrcea of our happiness, we shall find that they are two—external ai d internal; hot while It Is from the external world that we de luealiunr ideas, the office oi rejection and of imagination is performed in the interior world of ihont-ht- Man la as sensitive to external changes as the barometer to those ol ihe atmo-poer*. however tnuen he may boast of the superiority ot u,ind over matter. A pleas ng or a bright sm.shln*? exhllereici bia spirits, whilst a dreary wane or a leaden »ky produces depres sion. We aareciate these Ideas of external nature with our piestnt sources of happiness or misery red carry item into oar conceptions of a future oiftte. Hence in every age, acd among every nation, whether Christian ir Itegan, who have mad; any hrvgre** in Intellectual oeveiopmect, tbe idea of Paradise has been one not purely ot mental cul- ture, of converge aiid irlerdiblp, but one io which he senanons nature was largely to participate. The Elysium of the ancients was a union of leafy bow err, flowery meads and murmuring erre&ms, fanned by a geolai air ana lighted by another run ar o other stars. Mar.umrt, wUI; creating avoluptuona Paradise, nasbiougblloas accessories, groves, fountains and the r.rers cf blia*.

From the earliest period of the world's exist ence lo the present lime a love of nainreaod land- scape gardening was fostered and cncoutaged in me same ratio as civilization progressed. The Jews ard Egyptians bad their gardens, and Nebuchadnezzar, to grsttiy his wile Amjtis, a nangbicr of (be Sing of Media. who uas homesick and lonnd for ue picturesque scenery ai.d mountain* of her native land, con structed the famous hanging gardens of Babylon. Ibe captive Jews. Phtcnldans, Syrians and Egyp tians were engaged for years in building them, and according to Dloaonu and Strabo, nothing had been attempted prior to their ume, to com* pare m magnificence and gr ndeur with what was •hen accomplished. Among the ruins of Nincvjh bayard foutd traces of gardens: also a large tree, self It had been an object of worship and adora tion. The Chinese paid considerable attention to the ornamenting ot their pardeis, and at onetime their attempts at landscape gardening were more enccesslul than any other nation. To them may be traced wbar Is now called the natural system, so much In vogue In England and generally adopted in this country at Cue present time. A de c p love of nature pervaded the poetry of the Hindoos; this is also manifest in their pnollc grounds and gardens. There was nothlug striking In the gardens of tbo Perrians, no donot owing to the »ant ol grand and natural scenery. They were regarded as places of luxurious repose, and were constructed wholly with thtSTiuw. 'frees n ere planted in rows, in order that the wind may draw m currents through them; fonuiaios were placed ’n, and streams ran through them, to in crearotbe sensation of coolness. Flowers were ctmiva ed lor per lame and beauty. with here and there a tenbluthioate eve'gr* eo, which were re garded bv them as a great luxury. Their gardens were generally surrounded hjr in ccclosure. ••The Greek regarded the vegetable world as standing it* araanllold and mythical relation to heroes and to the gods, who were supposed to every injury Inflicted on the tre-*a acd plants sacred to them, imagination animated vegetable forma with life, bat the tvpes of poitry, to which the peculiar direction of mental activity aiuorgft the ancient Greeks limited them, gave only partial development to natural scenery.” Uomer, Find r, Sophocles, and Eurepldes occa sionally Indulge In descriptions of nature. 'lheir ic'eaa of landscape gardening were de rived from the Persians, although ranch Improve ment Is shown. The tendency among the Greeks was io«nconrage art more than naaire. Athens nad Us public Fark, called Accd</r,ia. It was laid out by Cimon, who formed pleasant w-alks, in troduced water and punted groves. At the en trance an altar dedicated to I<ovo was placed, and scattered through the gronndi weic statue.} and tn nnmenis to the most wo'thy citizens A por tion of this Park »«as devoted to the exercise of athletic games, and another to contemplative rec reation. Greek civilization made Us Impie-s on the Homans, and in many respects they wore similar, •honing that their lore of nature was not entirely Wat eight ot by their love of arh Cicero, and Pliny delighted In descriptions nf nature, and tn the poetic works ol Virgil, Horace and Tibullus, frequent allusions occur to nnlmal scenery. Lncan gives an admirable description cl the de struction of a Druidic forest on the now treeless shores of Marseille*.

The paik proper In the Immediate vlclnl-y of the houses was formal and symmetrical with the architecture, and the walks were lined with box and plane tret-s sheared to the shape of the walls. From the description ol the younger Pliny ol bis Tnscalan viila.wc are lei to Infer tnal tbs piincipal object of their landscape gardening was its eflvct upon the perspective, as here every thing was arranged wltn reference to the best dis ’ant views of the Campagna, In fact the same Is the case with the grounds and gardens of Italy at the present day, the artistic preponderating over he natural. The Arabs when at the height of power and civ- Utaiion paid some attention to gardening, and carried with them their taste Ido Spain, Totals sho<*n by the lac Jhal the Caliph A durrahmaa I. himself laid oat a honatical garden at Cordova, acd cameo rare seeds to be collected by hla own travellers In Syria and other countries of Asia. He natlrd, t.ear the palace of Rta-afah, the first date tr,e known in bpaln, and sang Its praises in a expressive of plaintive longing for bU na •ive Dunatcns. Fieicou, in bis conquest of Mexico, says: •‘there is no doubt, from the accordant testimo nies ( f Ilcman Cortes, In his reports to the Em neror, Charles V.; of Bernal Diaz, Honiara, Oris on and Hernandez, that at the time of the con quest of .Monuzuma’a Empire there were no menageries and botanic gardens in any part of Europe which could be compared with those of Buaxtepec, Chapnllcpec, Iztapalapan and Texaco. Humboldt saw two uses (torodlum dlsflcAn/ima) near Cbapnlicpec, which be supposed to be the remnants of an atciect pat den or pleasure ground of- Montezuma's, which measured thirty-eight f<ei In ilrrumlerencc.

As a few days more will bring another spring upon ns, with Us awakened activities, we natu rally Deem to look over the situation, and try to forecast the prospects of buslne»B and public and I private improvement* for the coming season. Frequently the plans ana estimates for -building operations have been made ont very largely be* tore ibis time, and material bought or contracted for. bnlldera engaged, sod everything pat in readiness so that, as soon as the frost la fairly ont. many fonoditlons may be commenced, and the work prosecuted to an carlv completion. T&e vast number of new enterprises which have been crowded into eacn opening season here for many rears have ren* dered these preliminary anaugemcnU iieccs»ary, so that a visit to the offices of oar principal archi tects before this time would give a very good toes of the nature and extent of building operations for the year. Whl-e, however, ISOT promises to aho-v as great strides in this way aa any of Us prede cessors. many cau-ea have combined to delay the completion of these preliminary arrangements as early as usual. The minds of our ddzena are probably generally made op as to what building enterprises they will em bark in, but the peculiar uncertainties which surround the coming season have delayed many from making definite and tangible expres sion of their plans. Probably leas has been de cided on than st any corresponding period for the last six years. Koi that many more buildings are n< t wanted, acd sure to be built, but some people do not want to commit themselves until the con tingencies an* settled. Oar city taxes have been abont two-thirds of one per cent on the actual value of personal property and real estate, and those for concty purposes about onc-tblrd of one per rent more, making one per cent lor local tax ation. This Is one ol the causes which makes the coetof building high. The proposition now pend ing to assess all property at Us real valae, makes the people think that future taxation will be in the tame ratio to that in the past as the assumed values hove borne to the real values, making It about three per cent on the actual valu ation. Tire fear of combined contractions of the enm ncy, which many think will produce a dan gerous stringency in the money market, and the pendency of various ones ions of State policy, come in to affect the price of building materials, as well as of other articles of merchandise. The price of real estate is al-o uncertain, on account of these and of local reasons. Some think that it will dimlrlcb, and while ibere seems to be no rea son to expect tbi«, Us possibility deters msny from purchasing at present rates, and makes pome holders willing to sell. Tne s»rirgency of the money market baa forced a few to sacrifice their property, and given some reason for the expectation of a de c’ll e. Still acoiccr uncertainty arises from the idea that the great and general reaction, which was looked for on the removal of the abnormal stimulus ot the war, hut which has hetd ofli con trary to common prediction, will now come, in accordance with the usual histone precedents; and a fifth cause is in the natma) expectation that the continued bad weather last fh.ll, which interfered wlta Ihc manufacture of brick, and the comparatively small amount of lumber which bas beet cut, and which, with the stocks still on band, will be considerably smaller, it U said, than the amounts of the last two years, wbl make the price of these two essential articles higher than they were before. Whether any or til of these considerations are wi rellloundcd or rot, an unprophelic ejc cannot .oretec. Bet they ceilatnly have influenced the project'on of a (airs of mstruitade. and cansed many or oar boldest and most enterprising men tn hesitate and cautiously revolve them and delay for a more settled condition of things. Consc uucnllj the office* of oar ari&itecls, although they contain in the aggregate a great amoaut of work, do not jet give a fair index of wha\ from otbe:l reason*, we may expect, another numb will show. Many plans have been made coiditlonal on a favorable {state of things, leaving it optional witn (be projectors to drop them if they desire. Bnt the general opinion of onr architects Is that building operations in Chicago, for the coming year, win be as extensive, it not mote so, than la«t year, and of a better dare. They sty that investments of this kind, particularly in business property, have gen erally paid well, and instance some blocks of stores which have rented a' a profit of twenty per ecnkafler denuding taxes and expense*. I here is a :arge an.ount of capital hero seeking investment, tlwelllng bouses are bleb and desirable ones dlf ncnlt 10 obtain, and when the coming of the building season makes longer delay useless and unprofitable, we predict mat the sound of the hammer and trowel will be heard on every side, “i , iA u ,r mtrotlß handsome structures, with, of course,a still greater number of smaller 5~!:.J ao i?m r . y uulldfga far resi dences, will In a few months rise np and adorn our growing city. Indeed, aside from ns»ly clamed emeiptlre*. there is workenongh either devised, contracted tor or begun last fall. bad weather and the hope of a decline tn the co«t of matmals. to keep oar mechanics busy for months, and to make a very targe addition to the Whether a longer delay on the part or those contemplating new enterprises will benefit them it Is of comse Impossible to say. For mmyyetrs those who waited lor lower price* bare invaria bly been obliged to pay higher afflast, as the con stant tendency of material and labor has been up wards. I.nmber Is said to now sell from twenty to twenty-five per cent higher than last year. Bricks, it Is thought, must rule lower than they did in the fall, aa Improved machinery is coming into use to lessen the expense of manu facture. labor will probably be as high as last year. The agitation of the cignt honr system, which entered into polities to some extent last fall, and to which our Legis lature gave some encouragement, miy possibly trad to reduce tse rates atwnicb coup actors will engage their bands. 11, however, they feel will ing or obliged to pay the same for eight hours work ns they did for ten, they nil) naturally mike it np hr increased estimates in'their coutraca, and If this course should generally prevail over, the country, su that the orlce of every article pro duced by labor should he Increased to make up for the daily loss of two hours’ time by each work man, It might be a question whether any one ould be pecunlatilT benefited by »ne change. It Is oi.e of those large questions of social econo my which have a very wide range of influence, and which cannot be quickly settled. There are some twenty or mote professional architects In this city, besides tbr. host of carpen ere and builders :n a large or small way. From hn cor four only of the former who were inter rogated on the prospects for future building, some of the foregoing lacte were gathered, nod n few of ibe piemtoexii atrnc area «nw projected learned They will tame aa a little iedlcatlou of wnat U to be done: bat a month or more hence will give as • tuuchnoti cornet end complete idea. Mr. T. V. Wadstiet baa on bia table the plan ol tbe largest block of tealdeucea la the cut. II will stard onto* conhwest come*of West Wtsh- Ingtoo at>d Sheldon streets, on part of the bloc* occnpltd by tbe skating Park; will be of three slot ter, besides high baspmeot and French root, vi lib marble tront, aud contstn tea flret-cla-a residences, costing some $130,000.

It cooslats ot an entire story built upon the roof of tbe rear portion of that block, forming a room forty by sixty feet, with a lotty celling, twenty four feet bleb, terminating in a dome whose apex la about ihlr'T-tlebt feel (tom the floor. The walls and ceiling will be splendidly stuccoed, frescoed and gilned, with appropriate paintings. Tbe ball will contain an organ ami be handsome ly furnished, constituting the Quest lodge room In the city, if not lo the West. It willbe com pleted about Slay Ist. Mr. W.W. Boymgtonhas the following lo note; An addition to the Sherman Bouse, on the Ran dolph street front, fortr by eighty feel, tbe first floor to be used for store* and the ethers—to the same bright as the main building—for hotel pur poses. Cost about ISO.OjO. f Mesar-. Keep Bros, arc about to erect a flue marble front block on the east side of State street, near Randolph, on two lota now occupied by small buildings. The main structure of Kuril Medical College, long contemplated, will be soon commenced, on ».e ground unjoining the prcacat building on North Dearborn street The cost will be $30,000. Messrs. Carter & Drake report a fonr-aiory block ol brick and atone, on tbe corner of MadUon and Slito streets, to cost some $15,000; sire, im provements on corner of state and Monroe for stoics and offices, costing SIO,OOO. We hear also of many large enterprises. wbl«h are not sufficiently decided upen to be commenced. Including five hoticeea blocks on Wabash avenue and Madison, Clark and I-a Salle streets. Tbe latter street prom ises to be tbe finest business avenue in tbe city. On the whole, tbe promise la good for a busy building season, while the character of Ihe struc tures will probably le of a still higher grade, as a whole, than before. LAW INTELLIGENCE!.

ALLEGED BUBACU OP PBOTIISB, A Widow and a Would-be Wife, On Saturday an action, based upon an alleged breach of promise, was commenced In the Supe rior Court by Arcy A. Johnson against Edmund D. Smith, and aecplda writ was Issued In aid of the proceeding. The circumstances of the case as developed In the affidavit of the complainant, afford an instruc tive gUtn»-»e into the workings of the divorce system, snowing how a woman may sometimes lump out ol ihc frying-pan into the Are. They would do well to give attentive Deed to tbe words ot Uamlct before seeking the divorce court, and, if possible, strive rather —“to bnr those ills lh«v bare Than fly to others which they know cot of.** The complainant, Mrs. Johnson. was unfortu nate In being wedded to a man whom she coaid neither respect sor reform, and she thought to remedy the mistake she had made by ceding ns* married. In her affidavit she elates that on the Pin of August, ISfiS, she was divorced from Henry S. Johnson by a decree In a Court of Chicago, on the ground of bis habitual drunkenness. But having once known the comto.ta of wedded lire, it v as not long before she s’ghed for a renewal 01 the relation. Shortly after the divorce -he became acquainted with one Edmund D. Smith. In the language of the affidavit, which Is the language of sentiment, the acquaintance ripened Into trleadsbip, and the Irltmlshlp deepen'd into love. Love begat tn 'imecy, and intimacy th-gat sorrow. Three months ot Platonic affection ei>deu in a declaration of love ard a proposal to marry. For a long tunc she withstood his importunities, which appear to have been not always of the purest kind. But “she loved him and she forgot ail but th tlove.” Coder a promise ot marriage she yielded at length to his orotestations, placing every continence of coarse upon his honesty and Integrity. For eighteen months np to the present time she continued to place everr confidence in him, and the mult was that she bade lair to become a mother. She ac quainted her betrayer with the (act in'! besought him to faint his promise, whereupon Ednmr dl) Smith reiuscd and denied that be ever made such a promise. The result Is the sun lor breach of promise which is now pending. A DRY GOODS HOUSE IN TROUBLE, Salta In (lie Firm ot Pntney« Kulgbl & Hamlin* The well-known dry goods firm of Putney, Knight & Hamlin. Nos. 105 and 101 Lake street, which has been carrying on a very heavy busi ness, has recently become involved in litigation. William A.

The complainant also allege? that the defend ants. Knight and Hamlin, conspired with Horace B.

Another charge Is that ot slanderous statements by the deiendants in regard to the complainant, accusing him of gambling, licentious conduct and giving away goons belonging to the nrm, to women o: bad thanctcr, without accounting (or them. The complainant also allegei that the de tendsntf have instigated salt mxm a note given by him, now held by U. B. Clafilo.

A meeting of the James Stephens Circle of the Fenlsn Brothetbood, not very largely attended, was held at Concert ilnll in the Uhlich Block, on North Clark street, yesterday altemoon at three o'clock. Tbe meeting was called to order by Thomas O'Connor, the Cbalrman. It was stated ihat one of the dally papers had announced tbe meeting as to take place in the evening, which accounted in a measure for the some* hat slender attendance. The Chairman tn uodneed Mr. Miller as a gentleman who hod been connected with the Fenian Brotherhood for a long time. Ur. Miller raid that be lelt It bia doty to act In this cause rather than to apeak for It, and be felt that there waa not sufficient reason for using an; elocution or any measures to Influence liberty* loving men to lavor ihl* organization, that was OghUng lor the extension of freedom and the free* cbiee. The aentencea of the Canadian Fenians were commuted in consequence of the public aen* timent developed by the Fenian organization lu ibis country and Ireland. Why then did the Femasa aland back and not put their hearts and* money In this cause, which was eecond to toe greatest thing that man tired tor. It was the duty of eveir man to extend bis spmpathyand all the pecuniary aid he conldaf* ford. Itwaaadnty which God had prescrloed for them, second to Bis own lore. One ellectol the reformatory meetings in Ire* land was that at the last session of the English Parliament Her Majesty recommended the prln* clpleef the extension of liberty and Irancbl&e to the people. The Irish people bad already proven their valor and bravery, not only In the battle* feii’B of the Sou-hem rebellion, out oo all parts oj the globe, 'the sympathies of me American people were with thejlnsh race, and, be believed that if they did not ob'am their indepinduoco It would bean overlasiiog shams, if men aodJ icrmtned, falthlnl and true, who had snfler.'d as mncbasu.e Iraihhad’from the British Govern ment. could not have their freedom it would he a blot od the human race. Tbe Chairman rated to the meeting that their lates' d> ppalcbea from Mew York were of an on coniagtrg character, and instructed them to keep thetrClici-aupas they would be shortly cilled upon to fake more active measures. Mr. J. L. Deasu briefly addressed the meeting. It ti as his opinion that lighting was now coins on, hot It was Impossible to set an; news of it by ifce cable, owing to the British censorship. Their Circle meeting* were held tor the purpose of keeping alive the feeling until positive Informa tion was received tbst fighting was actually in progress. On the receipt of such news llwas the intention of the Circle to create leaser co-oper ating Circle* In all sections of the city to set men and means to assist Ihelr Mends In Ireland. He hoped that men of ability wonld give the canse ibrir aid. Each soonid use what means be cooid to contribute to Ireland's success. He was sore that It was not lack ot love, hot want of confi derce that presented them from doing il. The tune wa* now at band when Ireland was en tering upon a straggle that wonld result In ever* lasting death or an everlasting resurrection. Eng land was now contemplating, with a placid smile upon her Hou lip, the annihilation of their coun try. but be believed the race wonld not he eater* mitated. If, however, the nation did go down In this struggle, she would go down in ench a halo of blooo as wonld render those who fought for her glorious and immortal. At the cocclnrioo of Mr. D ease's speech an op* portnnlty was afforded to jo‘n the organisation, alter which the meeting adjourned. A basinets meeting of the Stephens' Circle will be held at No. 7 North Clark street, this (Monday) evening at 7*4 o'clock. All enrolled member ore expected to be on band. mOSBIOENTS. Thelheatres daring the past week hare drawn excellent booses, notwithstanding the fact that the weather baa been highly unfavorable, and nothing new or striking has been presented. The “ Huguenot Captain." at the Unseam, and the "Long Strike," st.McVlcuer’e, have sufficed to satiety the wants of the play-going public, while the equestrian, performances of James Robinson, at the Coliseum, bavc hien witnessed wl'h won der and admiration every evening, Bkatorfal. amusements, too. have been rather ardently sought alter. Thanks to the new cooling process, by means of which the Ice Is made to resist the influence of mild weather, the frequenters of the skating rinks have be*n ecahUd to panne their favorite exercise all through the recent thaw. While all besides gave way and nearly one-third of the city was welter ing in floods, the rinks reunited Ann to the la*t, and the managers have guaranteed a good ser* vtceable sheet of ice, despite tbe.weathcr, till the end of March. MoVicxxu’s TnrATitr.—Mr. J. E. McDonough terminated a very successful engagement here on Falorday sight He has made a more favorable impression daring bis presect visit than In any of hla former appearances before a Chicago au dience. The sew drama of the " Long Strike," which was presented under his direction, baa proved a wry acceptable performance, and Mr. McDonongh's double unperson .tion of sid- rably above the average. On Monday Dan Bryant, the celebrated Irish comedian, commences an engagement at this theatre. Mcski.-'"The Hogncnot Captain” has kept the lecture room wcl' tilled every evening daring tbe week; the matinee performance on Saturday drew one uf the largest audiences which hat ewe been seen at toe Museum. The same play as pro duced at the Printers Theatre, of London, appears lo have created a powerful impression, bat tbe American version is bat a faint, imperfect copy 01 tbe original. Mr. Director Aiken has dote (be beet he conld with the material fur nished to him, and he has made u a complete snccete. Much credit is due (o the excellent set uery of tbe piece on which Mr. VoegUin, tbe scenic aitist, has evidently bestowed his greulfel care. On Monday “The White Boy,” hy Tom Taylor, will be presented for the tint tunc. Btsxnr or Mb. Nichols,—Nest Frl lay evening Mr. Charles T Nichols the •* heavy man” of the Mnteom dramatic company, takes Via first benefit in this city* Ihe “heavy ” basin ess is not always calculated to tneraliaie tbo actor into the good will of the audience, yel Mr. Nichols has shown himself so faithful atd sludloua in evenr part which Is given to him to fill that he has made nlm »elf In a short time very popular. We bespeak for him a benefit worthy ot the name. The pieces antomccd tor the occasion ate “A Dream at Sea” and "The Spectre Bridgroom," both < tandard plays w hich will not fail to draw. Crosby's Opera House——This popular young artiste was two years ago one of Chicago's special fsvorltt*. that time she has ap peareo in most of the principal cities of the Uni ted Slates, aid from alt accounts she has created quite a sensation. The p!oy-golng public wi il be clad to learn that she Is 10 apuear for a bilef reason at tbo Opera House, com* rneodrg March 4lh, supported by a competent dramatic company, selected fi ora the theatres of St. Lonls araCli-cimatl. MlssLatta will open in the “Pel of the Petticoats." m the . coatee of which she introduces some of her fa* vorlte dances. We bave no doubt that Lotta will be w» 11 supported here durine her slay. Robinson's Cmcrs.—The tiding of Mr. James Robinson, the champion equestrian, Is still the creat centre ofamactlon at the Coliseum, while the performance Is filled up by the displav of nn* merous lesser, though tar from despicable satel lites. Indeed Yankee Robinson has succeeded in drawing hither a first-class company for tbe winter amusement of the people of Chicago, and the people have shown their appreciation of the fart ny according to him « very liVral patronage. Tbe engagement of James Robinson will soon terminate, and cannot be renewed, as he Is under contract t*> leave Immediately for Europe, where he will exhibit bis unapproachable skill to tbs hundreds of thousands of visitors to the Paris Exposition, and then make tbe lour of the other principal countries of Europe.. There la no doubt that be and kta eon Clarence will make a decided Mention there. Mr. E. W. Perry In hia great four-horse act receives a meed of applause nieht -1», aecond only to that accorded to Mr. Kobln<on, and the other performers are well worthy of ap plause. One of tbe most astonishing of the feats is that exhibited by oneofthetwotraner.lsta, who bolds In bis teein a cord Dora which hu com panion is suspended, and goes through the nsual balancings a*.d posturings. Such a strength of jaw Is something wonderful. Mr. Robinson will anpear on Monday id his hurdle set—not seen In Chicago for four years.
