One of the Incas of Peru caused an aqueduct to be built twelve feet In depth and one bnnaied and twenty mnea in length. Its source w»s the top of a high mountain, and It famished water to on Empire. Iu more modern times, the same object—pure water—has led to the adoption of various plan' 1 , all directed to the same end. Two honored mid Ally years ago the first aqueduct wa* built for the supply oV London. It is iu use at the present day. It is forty miles In length and Is cue of the principal sources of supply. The valor in London is furnished by private corpora* tious. I believe there ate seven of them. All the water furnished for domestic use is filtered at the woiks. In the early pan of this century many water companies were organised xti the city of New York, but nearly all the supply of water comes irom . wells sank in the cny—much of it impure, and the quantity insufficient. The frigntfal ravages ot cholera in 1332 gave tn the subject a deeper interest, and in 1835 tbe Common Council reported in lavor of constructing an aqueduct to supply the city with water from the cioton River, at an estimated expense of between five am sir mil lions of dollars. It was submitted totue people and approved bv a majority, alinoagh over five thousand out of seventeen thousand votes were recorded against It. That grand and important work, the pride and blessing of the people, was commenced iu IB'7, and on the lourtb day oi July, iSit*, the people had a Iwo-iold ccleoritlou, rc joiccg over their release from a bad government, and the next best thing, their release from bad water. lint, fellow-citizens, it is time wc should say some-ping about onr own city.

They came onto»nr prai ries, to our city, which was then a wilderness. They came from the populated portions of the Ea-t and sought thrir fortunes here ; they built up their own roofs here, .They are men who, with frank hearts and strong arm.*, sought their fortune here amocs those that were with them and >hcrcver they are known, and miny of them an;now dead and some are yet living with ns, bat wherever they are kno->ii for thclc duties done, tbrir many acts and their warm hearts, the re membrance of them is cherished in the heart of tvery man and woman who knew them in this cl»y. lApplansc.3 This company was organized In iSSff. 1 will here read to yon a letter written at my request by one of onr esteemed citizens : “Sir: The 4 Chicago Hydraulic Company,* incorporated bv act of legislature, was or ganized In 1533, aud commenced opera tions In 1510, This Company built a re -1 scivoir at thecorncr ot Lakestreet and Michigan ; av'-nne. on the ground now occupied by the i Adams House, about twenty-five feet square and 1 eight feet deep, clcvallouaDout eighty led above the surface or the ground, and erected a pump, conceding it by an Iron pipe with the Lake, laid on a crio work pier, running into the lake aboat one hundred and fltiy feet. This pump was work ed by a steam engine of twnf>/~flce hors* power. The water waS distributed to the citizens through lops brred at the 4 works,’ live inches for the main lines aud three Inches for the subordinate ones. In 1-12 1 entered Into arrangements with the Hydraulic Company to do all the pumping for the supply of tne city with water for ten years without cost to the comnany, for aud in consider ation of the free use of tbe surplus power of their twenty-five horse engine. In winter the pipes on the pier wonld be disarrayed by tne'heaving ot tbe frost, and 1 had frequently to spend hours at a time to caulk up the joints by throwing on water aud thus freezing up the crack* before we could mase the pump available. When ibe end of ibb pipe from the pier was first put down It was tbree or four feet below the sur face of the lake, but in 18*2-3 the lake bad receded fo far as frequently to leave tbe end out of water, pmtlcularly when the wind blew from the South. Hoplrg that this reminiscence of our day of small things may be of some value to yon, 1 remain yours, with great respect, Jaxes Loxo. That was the Chicago Woiks a quarter of a cen tury ago: twenty-five horae-powerl Bnt that sort ci ibing could not answer long for a city so rapid in its increase in population and wealth. Iu 1551 the Legislature of tne S ate enacted a law incorporating the Chicago City Hydranhc Company, and John B. Turner, Horatio G. Loom is end Amnson G. Sherman were constituted a Board of Water Commissioners for the city of Chicago. Alter the first appointment tbe Com missioners were to be elected by tbe people. Tbe Commissioners were authorized to pur chase tier corporate rights and all property oi tbe Chicago Hydraulic Company. Under thote Commissioners these present Water Works were commenced and completed, and in Dccemoer, >53, water was first pumped into the pipes to ten them. Oa the same day the fire: hydrant was opened on North Clark sweet, near the bridge. In February, 1651, water watt first Introduced into the bouses. The first house that received it was at the corner of Cass and superior sliee'6. The flr-t reservoir was com pleted in November, IK4. The three Water Com misdiouens before named were succeeded as fol lows : Mr. Sherman by Mr. Jobs C. Haines; Meiers. Turner at.d Loomis by Messrs. George W. Dole and Janies Woodworth; Mr. Orrington Lett succeeded Mr Woodworth ; Mr. Sturtevant, Mr. Huirivs • Mr. Benjamin Carpenter. Nr. Dole (who died while in office); Mr. E. Hamilton, Mr. sturtevant. and in IBT.I, by an amendment or tbe city charter, <he Board of Public Works was cre ated, apart of whose duties were the entire charge of tbe water works. During all this time and up to this day, the engineer-in-chief of the pumping works has had control of the means of supply—Dewitt C. Crcgier, aman of acknowledg ed superiority in bis profession, of en larged experience, rained in one of the most extensive establishments in tbe city of New Yoik, whence, with words ot high commen dation from all who knew him, he brought nis getlus, his talent, and bis experience, to the city of Chicago, and for bis skill and service receives, as he should receive, honorable recognition and thanks from all onr citizens. The engines in yonder building have beeoin operation fomteen years. There they are, as period and efficient to-day as when first put in use. when the city re quired two million gallons. To-day they famish eleven million gallons, in all the long time there has been no stop, but they have been ceaseless in iheir work under tbe eye of their competent master and the assistants select'd by him, Francis T'ranlmar, Wiliam Mara and Kobe Fairon. But these works, under suen able management, at length failed to do what was re quired by tbe people, famish at all timet pure water, and in IbCI the City Krginecr. In compli ance with a request from the Board of Pnhlic Works, made a report of the various plans eugcc&ted to obtain it. Amongst the va rious plans suggested, there was ouc to lay an iron pipe from the shore, and extending one mile out into the lake. A second was to build a filter on the lake shore. A third to bring the water from tbe lake m the vicinity of Winctka through an aqueduct sixteen miles In length. There and many others were examined and dis cussed by the Board of Habile Works and Engi neer, out they all concluded to give the matter farther Investigation before adopting aoy plan ; but the people were not satisfied with delay, they can’d stand oa the shore in tbe centre of the city rod look upon the clear sparkling, pure water of yonder mighty lake, the coveted treasure so near—and they cried with one voice, who is ibe mau who can give os mia water for our use: the cry was beard; tbe man was there who, with tbe modesty that is ever the companion of genius, said he thought a tunnel might be built far under the bed of the lake—two miles in length—and there where the water was .thirty-five feet in depth, pure and cool in all seasons, the supply could be obtained. This declaration, widen brought gladness to so many, was re ceived with doubt and distrust by others. It was novel, untried;the expense hardy to be estimated, and failure imminent; bnt the man of science was not to oe moved from hie poeiuon. He showed them the plan; pointed om all tbe advantages, admitted the tisK, but advised tbe trial: and with tbe hearty approval of the Board oi Public Works, the plan was pre paid, the cost estimated, and by publication m ibe newspapers, persons wore luvitedto preheat offers to build a tunnel, two miles long, under Jake Michigan. Two gentlemen, from a distant : city, with much experience, offered to do tbe work. The contract was made. Tnrce y.ars . have since clapeed, and the great work is com pleted. Bnt to Hbom arc no indebted for tbe plan, fellow-citizens i To Ellis Sylvester Cbcs brtugb, civil Engineer, of the city of Chicago. A mao whose name is heralded throughout tbe scientific woild, because of this great achieve ment, and whose lame rests upon a foundation so breed and deep that it will endure for ages. And let me say. that this gentleman was most fortunate in all his co-workors—Messrs. James J. Dull a»d Mr. James Cowan. Ibe contractors, sur-ounded by difficulties because of the war, the increased price o', labor anfl material, and much else ot lees importance, still went on pcrriatcntly to :be end. performing their contract in all things lai'btullyaod masterly, thereby winning as con tractors a name eo rood as to ensuie their 6uc:ces hereafter over any competition. 1 regret that I cannot make mention of all who hao pa?t in this woik,but some of the more promi nent in ability aud service must not be emitted, ilr.

At u moderate price for the water to the citizens, tbe rcvcmmSfll be sufficient to pay all operating tnteiest on the debt and the principal cdwjwhen the bonds given to secure it t-hall mature. The income in 1857 was seventy-seven thousand dollars; lo 1807 it is three hundred thousand dollars. Tbe entire cost (when this building Is completed according to plan and estimate) of tbe water works o! Cfaica -1 go will be two million five hundred thousand dol lars. The cost of the water works for New York ciiv has been forty-five million dollars.

(CbCcis.J ADJOURBXSKT. Tbe Interesting exercises were now concluded. They would probably have been continued lor some time longer bad the thermometer indicated a little higher temperature. The members oi tbe Board of Public Works, tbe contractors, and some other gentlemen who were present, would un doubtedly have spoken briefly, but the weather was too cold. The andlcnce was thoroughly chilled, and the speeches were wisely cat off at tbe above point. Tbe vast assemblage dispersed, very many of them paying a visit to the extensive brewery of Messrs, /.ill & Co., where a bounteous collation was spread, to whifih they were wel comed iu person by Mr. LIU. And Urns termina ted the proceedings. A FEW TACTS. Tbe water from the Tunnel was turned on yes terday, and the liic-glvlng fluid is now coursing through-the municipal arteries, flowing along even main ard leader, into the ptocs which sup ply (bo bmldltigs of ihe city. It may be that the full benefit of the change will not be immediately netceptible. It will take some time to make a thorough change of all tbe water in the pipes, and .to wash out all the Impurities which have for yeers accumulated on tbe inner surfaces, and will be wached off sjoaly by the attrition of the pure lake water. None can tell bow much o< slime and filth, scales and miscellaneous detritus bas been deposited on tbe inside of the big and little tubes which -form our eys*em of water supply, nor how long it will take tn thoionghiy cieansc them of all these impuuties. It will be a work cf lime. it must not be suppo«"d ' bat the water now flow ing in from ihe middle of the lake comes to ns . through tbe orthodox channel, the present con nections with (be pumping works are bnt tempo rary. ihc conduits which will lead from tbe Tunnel to (he great well at tbe base of the pump, could not be got ready In time, and the water ilo’-ed yesterday and will ran for some days to come, from tbe tunnel, buck to the original point on the lake shore, where for years past the shore wa or has been gathered into the oil adit; thence it Is carried through the original channel to the pumps as hereto fore. It was expected that this connection would have been complete by yesterday, but man can onlv propose; it lesrswlthanothertodispose. ir was found impossible to do as tacitly promised, ard for some time to come we must put up with a tnakn-thlft. Ruring tbe hour preceding the time when tbe procession arrived on the grounds, a few of the waiters improved the opportunity by an inspec tion of the works, going first over the older por tion, and then looking at tbe new. The latter at tracted especial attention, by tbclr massive mag nitude. Rooking uV the ponderous beams, the big cylinders, the mammoth boilers, the abysmal depths of tbe reservoirs, and tbe mountainous nroporuons of the stone foundations on which the works rested, the Lake Tunuel Itself seemed to sink into comparative insignificance, as a com monplace bote, whose Importance bad been much ovi-irated. Talk about Vulcan and Cyclops! They were bnt entered apprentices in tbe great art in wh’Cb oar modem artisans are Royal Arch workmen. Tbe labors of the one were to the otbt-r but as the puny eflort of an infant to the la bors of a Hercules. HISTORICAL SKETCH. The oration of tbe Mayor contains a rapid, com prehensive glance of tbe history of the water sup ply in our city. There arc, however, some ad ditional points which may interest tbe reader. We present a ebon sketch of the water movement,* with a note of tbe principal epocne In the stream of our mutlclpal clepsydra, by which wo have noted our sanitary progress, and a general de scription of the Tunnel and the Warar Works as they will be when completed: THE OLD WATHIt WOBKP. In (ho early history of our city, me people were supplied with water by a private corporation, wh;se operations were conducted ouno particu lar system, being very much akin to the practice in some of the cities of Europe, where water barrels are drawn round the street In carts, and their contents sold out at so much per bucketful. The first attempt to systematize the wai«r supply was made in ISSo. On tbe IStb day of February, lirSl, an accessed by the Legisla ture was approved by tbe Executive of the Slate, giving existence to the Chicago City Hydraulic Company, and John B. Tamer, A. S. Sherman, aim H. G. Loomis, were appointed to constitute the first Board of Water Commissioners. They entered on the duties of their office on tbe 16th day o( Jnne lollowirg. Ten days later the Board employed William J. McAlpine, an engineer of considerable reputation m those days, to make the necessary surveys tor the works and to report with plans, for the purpose of enabling the Com misfeionere to carry the act Into execution. On the 24th day ot October he submitted a plan which was sul/Bcqiientlyadoptcd. It was based on the estl mat* that at the expiration ol flneen years the population of the city would be one hundred thousand souls. Ibis calculation was thought, by very many, to be an extravagant one; how ex travagant may be guessed from the fact that at tbe end of the lime mentioned, October, iHtf, tbe population was more than double that amount by actual figures, and a quarter of a million claimed by many who have been deemed of more than ordinary accuracy. The estimated cost of tbe works was about $3--3,DOc. Tr-c annual expense of running them was estimated at $18,(00. In April and August, 1552, two loans were effect ed vith Messrs - Duncan, Sherman & Co., of New Vo;k, bonds being issued to the amount of fjur hundred thousand dollars, bearing Interest at tbe rate of six ptr ecu per annum and having twenty five year? to run. The net amount realized from tbe tale of the bo: ds was fJbI.uSU. The work was almost immcdistely commenced, but the Bosrd was very much impcdio in-their move ments by an injunction issued at the instance of the Hydraulic Company. A committee of the Common Council bad, during the preceding Marci, recommended that the city pay the compar>y thirty thousand dollars for its property and Handlists, or fifteen thousand dollars for the franchise alone, hat the company nevu inti crated Us willingness to accept 'he odfer, : hut stood out resolutely to withstand any cn croschmenifiupon been heretofore an cxclUMve privilege. Tbe difficulty was snbse- Snentiy arranged w the satisfaction of both par es. 'ihe work was proceeded with then as rap idly as the limited facilities of that period al lotted. Tne following is a briel description of ILe works as orifiincllr built: li c works wen- located on the lake shore near Chicago avenue. AtmibercriD,twenty or lortyfeet, was sunk six hundred feet from the shore. and tom ibis crib a wooden inlet pipe ol thirty inches Interior diameter, laid in a trenen on the bottom of the laic, conveyed the water to the pumping well, which was ptaccd under the endue hon.-c, and was twenty-five feet d-ep. The end of the Inlet pipe was of iron and made to hend down to the bottom ot me well, actiig like a syphon. The waterilowed into the well by its own gravity, and thence tuts forced by the engines into the mams, and thcncc into the reservoir in the youth Division—the first built. It was conveyed hence to the distributing pipes In various parts of tne citv- Tbe engine bouse is built of brick—lt at present st&nde.bnt will shortly be carried out of doors—ln the modern Italian style. The main building is flfty-iour tcet front and thirty-four feet deep, with two wings, each forty-four by thlrty lonr feet. The main building was carried np two stories high, the wing one story. In (he centre of the main building a tower was constructed, 14 feet sqnare at the base, and }4U feet high, serving as a chimney for both hollers and a chamber foe the standing column, litis column was a cast iron pipe, iwenty-lour inches in diameter, connected with tne pumps and main pipes, and serving as a regulator in keeping np a uniform head of water in the reser voir. Tne engine was about two hundred horse power. There was alee a smaller one kept tor use in case of accident to the principal engine. Ihe reservoir building is located near the cor ner of Adams and Clark streets, two stories high, with a tank capable of bolding &OO.COO gallons of water; the tank was designed to bold a nlgnt supply for 50,000 Inhabitants; the surface of the water was eighty-three feet above the level of the take. Two other reservoirs have since been con structed for the other divisions of the city.viz: on Sangamon street, near Monroe, and on Chicago avenue, near Franklin street, and the distribution p:pra were gradually thrown oil over (be city till at the close ofthe year 3662 there were nearly 105 miles of pipes laid, including mains. Ike following table shows the amount of pipes laid down annually since 1351, with the population ofthe city: Miles of Tear.

Early in tbc year 1603 the water question absorbed great attention. Both tbc quality and quantity of the supply began to be the subject of anxious consideration. Citizens and corporate bodies all looked with anxiety to the future, and all became convinced that bnt a short time could elapse before an extension of the water system must of necessity be made, fhc need was acknowledged, bnt the means of meet ing It was a thing to dispute about, to discuss and to think of. All manner of soggertioiiß were made, and while they were making the fishes gerciatcdm onr water pipes; we drank fish soup for tea; scales floated in our tumblers, and minor specimens of nauseating trash settled in tbc sand in our pitchers and basins. Shirts neatly ironed were ruined by the grating of the smooth weapon ol domestic peace upon tbc sand which accumu lated in tbc fronts and fnlls. Generally the thing had come to be an intolerable nuisance. Writers wrote and fathers thought, mothers grew sick and children cried when they came In contact with the fluid served out to them. Every kind of remedy came to be thought of. There were pipes ot all kinds, and in all places sposen of. They were lo be laid along the lake shore; they were to be extended into the lake to gather Inn supply; they were to run along the margin of the lake; they were to be located at Bridgeport. Then deep cuts were proposed from the iakc to the river. Fanning mills and Axctumcdian screws were talked of. Some of these means were test ed ; they were all rejected. So far the moving Idea was the cleansing of the Chicago Elver. Its accumulated filth was running a course aud seeking - a level in onr houses cod the generally happy condition of our city In regard lo hcaUhftilncss continued in jeopardy, and the enterprise of our citizens was not to-be. deterred from fird’Dg a remedy by the want of success of a few early schemes. Pure drinking water being looked npon as a necessity, the expenditure of a llilie treasure was not fl consideration. Farther investigations were made, bnt mere resulted only m tnlorang that which was already well under siood—that the Chicago River flowed over a bed of HI ill and earned to the lake mar gin n noxious compound, the presence of which woe shown in an all-pervading, heavy and dirty scum. Tbc water of the river was an opaque and corrupted fluid, end the water on the margin ol the lake was last becoming as had as that of the river. Thu Common Council found the ne cessity for some action forced upon them. They and the Board of Public Works joined in com pleting a contract with Mr. PrcJlon, Su perintendent of the Illinois and Michigan (tunal. by wblcb a portion of the wa ter of tbc Calumet River should be diverted through the feeder and pumped into the nur. An artificial current was thus created to carry off some ot the imparities of the stream. Ibis was bnt a partial relict. It could not bo otherwise, for when the canal was in disuse the water could nut come, and even when the water flowed the increasing demand for it indicated a speedy want of a more extended supply. Thai ant Ihlrg bad b’.tn done was gratifying, and men of mind went to work to devise mesas of more permanent .good. Several Plana were submitted, aird boq>« of Item took hold ot public favor. They resolved themselves into two feasible classes, To divert the water or the i-alnmot and Dcsplaires rivers inro the Chicago River hr the means .of the feeder ana the use of pomps, A second plan was to build a suit* of Intercepting sewers, similar to those which have been recently- finished in the city of Locoon,ior (he purification of thenver Thames. A third plan was the construction of a ship canal, bat this was defeated in Congress early la' 1363. A covered anuedoct, to beef the diameter ot ton feu, to extend from the lake fo the rivor, was also propped. .... . - lo alt of these plans there were obJecJoua. One would Interfere with vested Mehta; another had !no surety of success to warrant an immense ex* penfilluic; too third was killed; and the fourth Burned to present the chauco of Increasing cor ruption. ’ About this time there originated fl measure of i alarm. There was discovered to be a constant i precipitation of decaying organic matter draining I or the lake shore and the eloagh intereec'ing the ‘City Cemetery discharged the. nanseousresult* , t following the recent burial of six hundred rebel* ; mto the lake a little north of the Water Works. A - change was decided upon; strainers, lake margin 'pines and tanning mills, passed from even htney, i and K. S. Cheshrough, Esq., thtrUlty Eneincer, , bit upon the scheme whicn yesterday was sue -1 cessfnlly put into operation, lie advocated the , propriety ortnnnelllng under the lake. What be - further proposed It is useless to specify here, for : bit proposition being accepted we-have it now ■ carried to complete success, and understand It, all ;of ns. The reces-aiy legislation,both atthe bands ! of the Stale and Federal authorities, was secured ■ and our city was empowered "to extend aqne* • ducts and inlet-pipes into Lake Michigan so far ;as maybe deemed necessary to ensure a supply ,u( pure water, and to erect a pier or piers iu the i navigable waters of said lake, for the making, preferring and working of said pipes or aqne i ducts.” ihc Stale legislation was approved on the 13th day ofFebrnary. 1813, and sanctioned by Congress. January 16th, 1601. The lake bed was now carefully examined. The surveyor’s report giving promises of success, the plan was adopted. THE BIDS. The drawings and specifications were at once made and bids for the doing of the work were Invited. On the 9th day of September. 1803, toe proposals made were publicly opened by the ißoard ol Public Works. Those were seven m number, ranging from $289,5tS to $1,050,000. They were as follows: domes Andrews, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, S2S'J,Si9; Bull & Gowan, Garris burg, Pennsylvania. $815,319; Waiker l Wood& Robinson. New York, $3.5,000; Williams, Mcßear, Brown & Nelson, Chicago, $490,609; Gcrvey Bash, S4O per lineal __foot; D. L. PeGclver, Chicago, $020,000: and William Baldwin. New York, $1,050,000. The bid of Rail & Gowan being without qualification, the i contract was awarded to them. Authority was ; granted by the Common Council on the sth of Oc tober, and the necessary bonds were issued. In 'this arrangement the time fixed upon foe the com •pktloti of the work was November, 1800. i U was Intended to commence tbe work during ihc month of February following, but annna voidable delay was occasioned in the non-arrival ,of the three cylinders lor the shore shaft, which ; were cast at Pmstmigh. There was bnt one car in jbe Dulled Stales capable of transporting these immense masses of iron, weighing 9,000 pounds ! each, and tbe three trips of the car were delayed : by the pressure of freight on (he line. DUEAEISO CBOUKD. On iho 17th of March. isfi3. a part; of aboot one hundred gentlemen gathered on Ibe lake shore at .ttefootof Chicago avenue, to participate In tbe ceremonies of breaking grouna for tht Tunnel, lb* Mayor, Hon. K. C. Gherman,-Messrs. Leizaud Uom*, of tbe Hoard of Public Works; b. S. Hayes. -City Compliollor: E.P. Chesborough, City Engi • teer; U. P. Unrrl-. Chief of the Fite Depart ment. and Aldermen Broun, Holden, 'fcchall, Titawortb, Von Holies, Wood man. Rnh, Kaon, Utmrod, Sheridan, Sullivan, Shimp, and Gaslfleln were present, ' while many other leading citizens were on Lbo ground to observe the interesting proceedings. ; Ai a quarter before eleven o'clock the Mayor ; began a brief address on the question of water. Ike difficulties under which the city had labored i from the lack of pmo water were recounted and a ; glance was given at the various schemes proposed 'to relievo them. The Hoard of Public Works had , been engaged in the discussion of tnose plana for the previous two years, and in making 'the necessary experiments to verify ihe conclusion* ' arrived at. It bad hern ascertained that all along the lake shore, for many miles in each direction, the water was mud dy, while to toe northward, at one or two points, maiebcs were constantly draining Into tbe lake, :o ray nothing of the constant precipitation of de caying oiganic matter from tbe a-:went ol the city. To scenic the clear, blue crystal water, it bad beau necessary to go out at least a mile ana a bait into . the lake, and the attention of the Board had been directed to the best method of tapping tbe lake at the point decided upon. After much discussion the tunnel plan was adopted, and ho was glad to he able to inform them that all ibe scientific gentlemen who bad been consulted bad expressed themselves perfect ly istisflcd with the feasibility of the plan. Ihe contractors—Messrs. Diul & Gowan—had received the award because they were tbe only parties who had made an unqualified hid, willing to iucar all tbr risks of tbe immense undertaking. For him self and the Board of Public Works, he would promise that nothing on their part should be left undone to secui e the accomplishment of tbe work. Mayor Sheanan then took the pick in band and btoke ground, amid the cheers of the assembled company, many of whom complimented him upon ibe i'droitncss with which he handled the too). Each of tie above named gentlemen then took a shovelful of the earth and placed It in the wheel bai row. which was then taken outside by Mr. Gowan. Ihe ceremony was over. No costly de monstration was made, no* even a baulo of wine was spared to break over the ground : bat all that was necessary had been done; the Lake Tunnel was commenced. From this time tbe work was Ercsecnted with vigor, and the Tunnel was soon cingpnebcd out under the lake. TUX dim BUILT, LA UNCOED AND BOOBED. Or. the 2ih pay of duly, lbos, the crib Intended to surround end surmount the lake shaft was towed to its moorings and safely sunk into its present place. The launching of Ibis monster structure was a subject of great interest. It had been delayed for some weeks, first, inconsequence of >be ways not being deemed strong enough, and subsequently because of the nays being unship ped oy a collision «llh a vessel. Ihe crib was built on the North Pier on the lake shore. A series oflongbeams were ran under it slu; cd at an inclination *»r oim foot in j} ve iq ih e water which was there very *tL.iow. There were many who predicted that tbe structure would stick to the bottom. It, how ever, glided down smoothly and easily. The wedges were knocked out by a gang ol workmen, after about an hour's labor. In less than ten uii met it was doming in the water, having moved downward at a rate not exceeding five or six fe< t per minute. It sailed out on to tue bosom of the lake "i<b Mr. Gowan, one of tbe contractors, Ha’ irg hip bat.as he stood upon the top of the float ing maes.ai'd without producing 8 sensible wave in the wut*-r. The case of Its motion Is perhaps best shown by tbe statement of tl e iact that a small bout containin' two boys, and boys always will be in the wey of danger, was in advance of tbe crib, - ot more than twenty feet, broadside on, and as tbe thing came moving dowu the boat was ru t sensibly locked, though, of conrsc, it was moved forward by the slight swell produced. Tbe crib was tow* d out to Its resting place by stctiu tugs, each of (hem laden with specta tors, and Qc.ompssicd by several other boats. It occupied abont an boor in *bc passage of two miles. Thelocatlonbad alnady been marked by tbe placing of five buoys. The crib was floated into the midst of these, and was then allowed gradually to settle, by letting in water, the bottom being floored, it occupied some three boms In sinking, and was tben filled with stone In passing through, one of the buoys was fouled and diaggeo from its position. In con sequence of which toe crib waa sunk some six or seven feet on one side ol'lho point over which was originally intended for Us centre. The lines of: direction oi (be tni.cel were mce-sarilv altered to that extent. Perhaps ibis may be accepted as a sulTdenl explanation or the fact that the two drlffe of the tutnel failed to meet exactly, their being a jog of about six Inches. It Is ciceedirglv probable that bad tbe crib been sunk in the ex act p ace marked ont tor it, the drills would have met to within an inch. It la necessary to a proper understanding ofihis to eta'c (hit the western end cl the tumid had t cen ran ont Tor a thousand feet in the original direction before tho crib settled. THE TCNNEL EITU-T. Oa Thursday, the Gib day of December, 1656, about three bundled invitations issnea to citizens of Chicago, bidding them by sections of about seventy five each to attend at the celebration of ibe completion of the tunnel proper. Parties went to the crib, acdothcis look the land shaft route to the upper region of tbo crib, in the lake. In tbe first tram of cars which left the Water Works were tbe Mayor, the Board of Public Works. the representatives of tbe C’ty press, and tbe Board of Aldermen. Tbo tnp to the eastward, under the lake, was that which pos'csscd the merit of interest. It was a curious, even as It was uninviting, trip. It would, more* over, have been a cheerless trip had it not hcen that there was a feeling of Joy prevailing, for tbe (rip to the centre, where the last hrick should be laid, was performed, not onlr in an almost total darkness. but in silence, broken only by the tramping of those very small mules which drew the cars, and the occasional admonition of “low bridge.” which admonished tbe passengers of the near proximity of the roof to their heads. Eight thousand two hundred and seventy-seven icet distant from the land shaft tbe cars stopped, and tbe passengers alighted ata hole, into which with some rertznonv, tbo Don. J. B. Bice, the Mayor of Chicago, placed the neat block of white marble, which bore the words “Closed up, Decembers, J6CC.” Tbe party proceeded to the crib, where it was joined by a well pleased crowd, who spent an afternoon in speech-making, salutation, and sub sequently in the enjoyment of a festive occasion round a well-filled tabic. Tbe eebo of tbe salutes of cannon on the shore, and the “ Bohemian Club” salute from the highest point of tbe root of tbe crib ceased to be beard; tbe cheering died away; tbe speeches remained only to be read in the papers, and tbe occasion remembered until it should bo eclipsed by tbe gi cater glory of yesterday, the introduc tion of pure water iuto our streets and bouses. Still the work was not finished. The Tunnel netded to be cleared out and tested, tic connec tion* made with the drifts at the shore end. and the straining apparatus fixed on the crib, the two latter works not being possible while men and material were passing up and down tbo shafts. JJow all this has been done, and the great under taking is practically finished. The work has been often described in these col umns, but for tbe sake of completeness we give tbe lollowlng short sketch of THE TUNNEL. The artificial basin on the lake shore, from which for many years onr water has been drawn, lies at the foot of Chicago avenue. A little bock from the shore, on the site of the old pumping works, a perpendicular shaft sinks down through ibe stnd ana may tixtv-eipht feet below tbe level of the lake, with an additional depth of seven feet tor a well below tbe bottom of tbe Tunnel for the purpose ot bolding the surplus water in case it is reqnirod to empty the Tunnel. It was originally intended io construct the shall wholly of brick, running It down from the surface of tbo ground to a depth of fifteen leet below the • level of the lake; but a shifting quicksand was found which compelled the abandonment of tbe plan An iron cylinder, wine ftet in diameter, inside, and two and a quar ter inches thick, was pnl down In four sections, os Car as tbe bottom of the sand bod, some twenty-six feet. The remainder of the elmi was bricked up. 1 i om tbe bottom of this shaft the Tunnel extends >w>> miles and seven feet out under tbo lake in a straight Hie at rlcht angles to tbe shore, pointing about two points noitb ol cast. Tbe dear width is five feet and the clear height five feet and two inches, the top and bottom bemgecmi-circies. It is lined with brick masonry eight inches thick, in two rings or shells, the bricks being laid lengthwise of tbe Tunnel, with toothing Joints. Tho bottom of tbe inside surface of the bore at tbe cast end is sixty-four feet below water level, and has a gradual slope towards thesbore, of four f-et, to admit of Us being emptied for repairs, tbe water being shut on'by a gate at the crib. Tbe earth through which the excavation was made is a stifi'blue clay, so uniform that only one leakage of water through tbo Tunnel ever occurred, and that was very slight and of short duration. The rapacity of the Tunnel Is a little less than 2,0( U.tiGh gallons of water, so that it will be in el- Icct more than five times emptied dnnpg a day to supply the amount at present consumed by tbe city. Itis capable of delivering, under a bead of two feet, 10.00u.i CO gallons dally, under a bc.id of eight feet, SO,* (JO.OOU callous, and under a head of eighteen icet, 57,0W,00U gallons. At tbe last rate, the velocity would be four-and two-tenths miles per boar, and tne supply would be sufficient for one million of people, ite great two mile exca vation has’required two million six hundred thousand bricks, and has cost nearly six hundred thousand dollars Over the spot where the shaft of tbe Tunnel rlst s up to the bottom of the lake stands the crib. This is a grtnl pentagonal structure,forty and ouc-hairrcei high, inscribing a circle of nfnety ergbt and a half feel In diameter. It is built of locs one foot square, ana consists ot tbrec walls at a distance of eleven feet irom each other, having a central pentagonal space having an In scribed circle of iwcnty-Cvo loot, within which is fixed an iron cylinder nine feet in diameter, run ning from tbe water line to the Tunuel, sixty-four feci * c!ow the surface a* d thirty-one feet below the bed of the lake. The criorsthoronghlyhraced in every direction. It contains 7Su,uju feet of lumber and 350 tons of iron bolts, is filled with 4,SCO tons of stone and weighs 5 71*0 tons. it stands twelve feel above the water line, siring a maximum area of j «tO feet, which can be exposed at one sweep to tbe action of tbe waves. The outside was thoroughly caulked, like a vessel, with three threads in each seam, and outside or that Is a layer of logging, which will keep the caulking In place and protect the enh from the action of the waves. While the work was in progress, a covered platform or bouse was bmlt over tbo crib, protecting tbe workmen Irom wind and ram. ano making a place of deposit for the earth brought tip from the exravaUon, whence. It was carried away by scowa, «ho*e returncargoes wore brlc*s for the lining uf the Tonnel. . ; Tue tou oltbe cyllider is covered with agrating to beep opt floating logs, flab, *c., and tnrotub a .filulcoor cate**ay in the aide oi the crib the t water flows in and starts on.

The 'great Tunnel, filled with water and ending at the shore shaft, and the werka for.fiistrihnUon already described, are coimec'cd In ihc following way: a drift or horizontal theft, one hundred and fifty-four feet lorg and lour leet in diameter, has been dog from Hie main shaft or shore end of ibo Tunnel to the calc chamber, which is the first temporary reser voir tor the water.

The warehousemen, wc understand, have refused to issue any receipts under (be cental, and will continue to issne under the hnsncl as heretofore. The reason alleged by the warehousemen for this action consists in their inability to harmonize with the Milwaukee eleva tor interests. These gents propose to charge per cental, B}jc for Wheat, 4c for Com, and 6c for Oats, while oar warehousemen were In favor of charging 4c per cental for all grain. Milwaukee handles Wheat almost exclusively, and her ware housemen, of course, will give the preference to the trade In this cereal. Here all sorts*)! grain ore largely handled, and the warehousemen ore opposed to making any discrimination in the rates of storage. Thus, for the present, the matter stands. Some old fossils, both hero and in trio country, are opposed to the introduction of the cental because they are not used to it, and cannot understand the philosophy of the change. These same individuals prefer travelling by stage coach, and characterize the cable us a humbug. As New York and Philadelphia have determined to adopt the cental on May Ist, it nould be well for our Board of Trade to take some action la the Interim, and make all the necessary arrangements for fulling Into line with the cities named. The other towns will then follow salt. Sat. Mon. 109 109*4 Duflhlo Abandons Ibo Cental System. The following Important resolatlon was adopted at a meeting of the Board ct Trade yesterday morning: ■Wuebeas, The Buffalo board of Trade, In tne month of January, adopud a resolution from and after the dm day of Mnrcn, to hoy and sell gram by the cental; and, Whsbeas, The city of New York has not adopted the cental rystem, and the cities of Cbii-aso and Mil waukee have not lully adopted it. and the city oi Toledo, oner having prepared a resolution to adopt It, have rescinded tne •> nrao and decided to return to the butlicl again as heretofore: and, WnKiuua. The cental system does not seem to give general satisfaction to our merchants and dealers In grain; therefore, Ji'Mlrta, That the resolatlon passed In Janaary, to to adopt the cental system he rescinded, and mat we will bctcaflcr buy and tell grain by the bushel as tcrctolorc.
