In old ricottiata times, as we are Informod by the writers and historians ot tbe day?whenever any great danger or Invasion threatened the land, signal ires were lighted on tt>6 mount tin t?i>s. and these Uglus so kindled were repeated .inakl every brae and shlngis, until the wooie laud bMi.umo one illuminated pyramid to warn the peo pie of the approach of an enemy, and to tell the enemy himsolt thai be must conquer brave men if be wished lor victory, the first sound of the great steel boll l?nt night waa iu Its e fleet vary much like the beacon Oro or tbe 8c itilsh mountaineers. Iu Its bold and musical nug and stirring articulation came tbe aanoaacement. jut tbe second arm of tbe great Military Fair was opened to tbe people of tbe Metropolitan Empire. I ron month to mouth the tidings were taken np and carried along throughout the city, so that at eight o'clock lust evening, tbo hour fixed for tbe commence ment of tbe Initiatory concert, there were by many hun dreds more people In tfie square than tbe batMlog could possibly contain. . ? An Imrnrie collection of German musicians arriving about this tui-u created considerable excitomunt, or at least, particular attennon. Tney um? up in double file, with their instruments as bright as tboee or the musicians of the regular army, and with a aegree of order which would not Lave dishonored the beat regulated military organization. Thotr mode of entrance inf > tbe buildings was of course different from that or the gene ral public, and wlnie tbe audience were wondering whether there would be any music at all, the whole phalanx of musicians, vocal and instrumental, emerged from a side eotrauce and took up their allocated placet I on the plauorm. I or the decoration* or the room we have already spoken, hut there ia much tbat may yet bo said. The descendants or the Dutch burgomasters and Knickerbockers, although generally a quiet and orderly sot, know well how to be take them.seh-ss to tbe happy social development of occa sioos or this kind, as may well hsvs been seen by any One visiting tne rooms.

Talk or Cinder ella and tbe (Jla*s ipper.nnd hV i he marvels ittachod to that very ? omarkabie and marvellous story, and we find nothing to be compared to the vugical eflbcts produced by tbe ladies iu their great fairy palace ol Union square.

There ladles wore all rtprcaeatat vosoi the very beigbtb or tbe different foi ms 01 the prevailing Intluou. At about a quarter to eight o'clock, tbo Rev. Or.

Tbe prayer was com piled from different parts of tbe Ho< k of Common ITraynr, witb some necessary additions by the clergyman,appro priate to tbe occasion, aa in tbe regular form of the Fpis copal church there is no form of prayer, of wblch we have any knowledge, ler tbe success of a Sanitary Fair. After tbe prayer, in eblch tbe whole assembly fervently joired, Mr. Samukl D. Rii.olxs was Introduced, and made an excellent speech. He gave a lull history of Union square, the spot on which tbe Kalr buildings now s'aod, and Con cluded with a most Interesting argument ;n behalf ot tbe ?bjecis or the Sanitary commlss,on.

The kitchen utensils, polished up according to the moel una mpronnslng style ol old Knickerbocker excellence, glittered like the goldoo ves sels of the Jewlab temple on some high fesUI day. Everything waa aa clean as a pin. as tbe saying g?es, and aa neat as woman's bands could make It. A savory and satisfsclory smoke issued from the chimneys, betraying a fact we'l kno#n to the ladtea witliin tbe building tbat there were sere al varieties of good things In process of culinary conversion, not excepting tbe "caidel," or which we have already bad aome experience Ttio forms or two rollicking old caie were to be seen quietly snoot ng t>r thu Ore, while an old nerro fiddler contributed to the euaetou'by "nwkiag night bldeoun" with some very b *ei?n and dreamy |ierrormanree on an old Addle.?
