The Committee on Hospitals recommended that the bouse of Mrs. Caroline Scewert. adjoining tho County Hospital, which was Injured by the roof falling upon it, i bo repaired by the county at a cost not 1 to exceed SSO, as tho bouse was still without a roof, and the woman was a widow with a large i family, and too poor to stand the expense.

On Friday last Joseph A. Uolltck, living at No. 643 Superior street, and W. W. Bunion, bailing from No. 148 State street, offered Utemselves in tbe Criminal Court as bondsmen for James Uudgcrs, the burglar who entered Partridge's store on State street some weeks ago and pried tbe safe open, having previously stolen the tools to work with. They scheduled their property and made thereto the necessary alMavlu, but the bond was nut accepted without an examination Into Its value. Yesterday the par ties came Into court to perfect the bond and secure Kudgesr* release, little knowing that since the original application Deputy Clerk James Doyle hud discovered the "straw* character of the appli cants. They wore arrested at once by a warrant from tbe Court and conveyed to Jail, tbc allegation against them being that they had committed per jury lu swearing lu the ownership of property which the records Indicated belonged to some one else. They were astonished, of course, at the turn affairs bad taken, and, whether wilfully guilty of the charge against them or not, the only consolation they hail was afforded by the Court, who promised to pass upon their ball at U o'clock for their appear ance this morning for a preliminary examination, the bond being fixed at $2,000. At 3 o’clock the parties were brought Into Court, accompanied by tbclr attorney, instead of offer ing boll for Ibelr further appearance, however, they sought to establish (heir innocence of the charge against them, and introduced Joraes Bax ter, of Board of Trade fame, for that purpose. To offset bis story, which was not regarded as the etralghUist, the chain of title to the property In question was Introduced, going back to the fire. Tbe records and Baxter's story together left tho property under sundry elands, and tun whole went a great ways with the Court In showing that there was a strong probability that the clouding of the title was a Job, and part of a general scheme to es cape the penalty for perjury. so far as Mr. llaileck was concerned In tbe transaction, tbe Court saw bow It was possi ble that be could have been mistaken about bis title, and thus not guilty, and be was discharged. But U was not so with Burton. The cose against him appeared plain, and while his attorney pleaded for him he paced the floor with t nervous step, stopping only now and then to die his respectable connection*, etc. Thu Court was obdurate, how ever, and demanded of him bull lu $2,000 to ap pear this morning fur a further bearing, or go to Jail. Baxter came forward and offered himself, nut the Court would not Hi-tcn to him. Then came his attorney with tbc utfer lu deposit SI,OOO, say ing that Mr. Heed hud agreed lu accept the deposit as security for both of (be parties. The Court would not yield, however, preferring other securi ty than money, and more of it, which tbe prisoner E remised to furnish daring tba evening. The caring will be had this morning, and the prospect is that the Grand Jury will be called aeon for an Indictment. The Uexfcaltha Court and LU assistant* detune • THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: TUESDAY.

There Is not yet any ddbldcd Increase In tho at tendance at the Centennial, or In the floating population of tho city. On no day last week did the number of paying visitors to the Exhibi tion exceed 10,000, and of that by far tho larger part was composed of residents. Room-rent remains at tho same figures, averaging $1.50 n day. Tho hotels are not more than comfortably filled, and there Is no Indication of tbclr being crowded again before July. Although ACfITRtA AND JIDNOATtr present ft fine display la the Main Building of gen eral exhibits, thus far but little headway has been made by them la Machinery Hall. Space has been allotted those countries adjoining tho main en trance on tho south aisle. It Is cluttered up with large, heavy packing-cases yet undischarged of tbclr contents, and, outside of several small sew ing-machines, nothing Is exposed for observation In a complete condition. Workmen yesterday were engaged in arranging things, and In a few days everything will bo in order. What la true of Austria and Hungary la also true of TTIB NBTRBRLAND9 In Machinery Hall. The latter country has not yet arranged her exhibits, and Is far behind her neigh bor, Belgium, who has made a fine display in the mechanics. Outside of unwieldy, heavy deal boxes, nothing remains to locate the country. nunnisn cleared away. The Immense platforms and the old custom-house that wore between Memorial Hall and tho Main Building have been removed, and In a few days It will be cleared from one end to the other, and when the total-abstinence fountain receives its final finish It will make a most beautiful sight to look west from the eastern end.

TUB FUENCn PAVILION Is rapidly being pul together. Tho Iron pillars and girders are all up and ready for the roofing.

From Our Own CorretpondtnU Philadelphia, May 19.—After holding up to the light a bottlo of tho goldcn*hucd Cabcllo Dorado, and examining tho forty kinds of In digenous wood, there is very little more to bo seen In the Peruvian Department. . A dis play indeed does that country make In products of skill. Some filagree-work In stiver, by the orphans of tho College of St. Teresa, at Lima, Is creditable; as are also several inlaid boxes and tables made by the convicts in tho Peniten tiary of Chanchamayo; but neither of these ex hibits can bo taken ns a criterion of popular taste andcapaclty. The Peruvians, It Is evident, are not a race of artisans, whatever they may bo In the way of shccp-ralslng and wine-growing. Probably no better Illus tration of the national traits of Peru could havo been -hit upon by the Peruvian Commission than that afforded by a painting which, with great propriety, adorns tho arched entrance to their department. 1 regret not to be able to give Use name of the artist, though, os ho Is a native, it would probably bo unpronounceable. Tho picture Is 5 feet in width, and represents a scene In front of an inn. In tho doorway is seated a gultarrcro, clad Ina carclcssly-ilttlng and variegated costume, his head thrown back, and his feet keeping time, while bo thrums a lively waltz upon tho strings. In tho foreground are several young men,— gay gallants of the town, —who havo evidently como down Into this humble neighborhood to have a good timo. They have tho European dress. One of them starts oil on a waltz with a pretty girl in a green drees, whose elaborate , flounces are lifted up enough to disclose a Utile slippered foot. Away they go, while tho young man's companions Indulge Ingood-naturcdJcHtathSs expense, —one of them meanwhile having stolen his arm around the waist of the landlord's wife. Aby no means solemn padre, with clean-shaven head, looks on smilingly, and perhaps bestows a bene diction, providing be Is treated to a glass of wine. A mountaineer rests bis tired limbs upon a bench near by, while his faithful hound guards his saddle and pack. Ueyond are seated a group of Chular Inlpans,—low-browed, bare-legged,—partaking luxuriously of a dish of bananos ami oranges, The conception of the piece Is more than good, and thu few minor defects of color are scarcely noticeable la the general happy effect. Tho advantage of tho International Exhibition, In enabling our people to get over their foolish Ideas about tho superiority of American produc tions, cannot bo easily estimated. Only when the best specimens of tbc manufactures of different countries are displayed side by side, can any fair comparison bo made. How weak and crude arc American manufactures when thus brought Into Juxtaposition with those of European nations 1 Our exhibits make a vast and almost endless array, end nearly all are excellent and Interesting as a study to Americans. Yet, beyond a curtain degree of excellence, It seems aa if we could never pass, .where real and great art comes to enter Into tho composition of goods, there Is the point where our people leave on. In everything that is useful and popular, tbo American Department is unsurpassed. In luxuries, It-lags. The lesson of the Exhibition will be invaluable, no matter what may bo the pecuniary loss to tho Government or tho State or Pennsylvania. It Is sold that the Copcnhogen Exhibition of 187:1 broke down tbe Itoynl monopoly of making porcelain, be cause, by bringing the work of other establishments Into comparison with It, tho public found that Just aa gaud ware could be bought outside of tbe city. Imayn his name is—l mean the Japanese Secre tary with wboDt I became acquainted tho other day, in one of tho ullra-Centennlai restaurants. He told me a legend to-day, about one of the an* tlque bronzes in his department,—a curious piece of workmanship. It is a bowl, about U inches across, with strange and enigmatic figures and characters worked all over Its exterior. Many of them are half-eflaccd, andsomeentirely. The rim ia literally bent with arm, but there are no cracks In Its surface. Upon the edge is poised the figure of a bird, with wings outspread, as if to take flight. The cover to the bowl lies quite useless beside that utensil. Imayu, with long circumlocution and many ridiculous blunders in speech, recounted to me tne story of the bowl, which I shall try to tell In few words: In the reign of the Kmporor YnushL. 400 or 600 years ago,-fiio need to be particular about a little matter of a century or so,— Karamaga. a poor pot ter, lived in one of the outlying villages about Yeildo. Ills ancestors, for some thousands of years back, had been in the same line, very likely (o the same town. Now, one day, wiicn Karamaga was making an offering to his god, the god reached his band down to the floor, and, taking up a can dlestick, said: "Karamaga, take this and beat It five times: then fashion it Into a bowl. When the bowl is fin ished, and lbs cover ready to put on, strike tbe bowl five times on its five sides. If you have been bouest all your life, a bird will fly out. and will re turn tbe next day with a piece of gold in Us hill, and likewise every day thereafter." So Karamaga went bravely to work. Five days he wrought, and placed on the sides of the howl every device of which bla art was capable, lie then, according to instructions, struck the bowl. As be struck it tbe fourth lime, a man from the Emperor's palace came along and said: "Is this the bowl of toe golden bird that I have come to taker* And Uaramagasald: "No." . Then tbe man tamed away, and, on looking at bla work, Karamaga taw a bird perched on the edge of tbe bowl; hut, alas! It was of bronze. 1 inspect that the lady-roadera of Tea Tribune would be as much interested lu a description of the superb dresses on exhibition from Faria as any thing eUe. But to give all their charming details of frill, and flounce, and bias, and trail, is no easy task. There is one feature of the French Depart ment which really excels anything of the kind pro duced by other countries, tu should not be omit- toil from thin correspondence. I refer to the fur-, exhibit. One largo show-cure, belonging Ip Ilevll lon Freres, of tho Rne Illvoll. Paris, U filled with fiir-gnrmontaof thn finest order.' I noticed a seal paletot, black, with ft broad trimming of silvered leaver, which sell* for S4BO. Tho effect of Insert ing while hairs In the beftver la exceed ingly good. There was also on opera cloak, or white corded silk, very henry, nndgold embroidered, with beavcr-trlmmlng, and having a silk and gold ball-fringe, nil for S4OO. A Jacket anil paletot combined, of velour* frappo, lined with genett, and trimmed with sllvcr-fox nape. very wide, was marked $1,725. A eenl-Jacket with chlnchlllft-lrlmmhig running diagonally across tho front, new style, was priced at $225. A velours poletot. trimmed with silver-fox nape, sold for gdlM). Tho finest and costliest garment In the show-case was a paletot of richest allk-velvet, trimmed wllh Russian sable, tho price being $3, -00. A very pretty , ermine opera-cloak, spotted with tails, and with a fringe of whllo velvet and silk, was placed at SUO. There was also several overcoats for gen tlemen of luxurious tastes. One of these, of broad cloth, lined with sealskin, and trimmed with tho same, and having heavy silk cords and buttons, was placed at fcnoo. A hluo-black overcoat, of broad doth, lined with sable, and trimmed with Russian sable, cost $1,050. V. Tho Presidency of Bombay has contributed gen erously to the Exhibition. Several old English firms, bovine bouses in London and Bombay, have taken the pains to collect some of the beat speci mens of native workmanship In wood and precious metals, ami they may now bo, seen In tho Indian section of tho Main Building. The hlnck-wnod carvlmrs, and filagree work In silver and gold, show an astonishing degree of skill. If the carpenters and Jewclcrsof Poounb, Abmednuggar, Surat, nmlChundorc. worelnAmcr lea, 1 am convinced that they would make a hotter living. Blackwood, or ironwood, In a peculiar product g. owing In the forests of Aracan. it Is ex cessively hard and heavy, and furniture made from it Is very durable. I lifted a pleco of this wood which In a raw stale was on exhibition, and found it almost as heavy us lead. Tho ranees and wealthier Khalrces arc very fond of the blackwood, and their houses are adorned wllh tho most elabor ate carvings. The specimens presented In the In dian section of the British Department comprise choirs, chiffoniers, picture-frames, sun-screens, writing-desks, and nook-coses. One desk that I noticed was carved all over with Intricate devices and open-work. Tho front part of the desk proper was sup ported by a pair of graceful standards resting upon eagle's heads. It Is worth about S7O, Including duly, exchange on gold, ami freightage. There Is un Impost of flopcr cent on all these articles. A piano-stool, with carved back and screw-scat, Is worth £oo. Besides these, there were elegant pier-tables and vases. They were all hand-made by native Hindoos, and exhibit equal skill. I was assured that an ordinary piece of furniture requir ed a month's hard labor in Us making. . The jewelry exhibited is all cosily and rare. I noticed a- complete sot, embracing brooch, ear rings, necklace, and bracelets, of tiger-claws In laid wllh gold, valued in our money at 84-'iO. There was also a great deal of coin-work.—chains and pins made out of na tive gold coins. A brooch, solid gold, and carved all over with figures of Hindoo deities, was alone valued at SIOO. Of silver, especially note worthy was the cutch-work, consisting of table sets. chased In a hlghly-clahorate manner, and very expensive. One of the goblets was priced at A very odd toasting-fork, made of the crooked horn of an Ibex, silver-mounted, was also a feature of tho collection. There were, besides, huge gold bracelets, cultack bangles (armlets worn by the native women, and never taken off), and fanciful ornaments of all kinds. VI. It seems rather hard on George Woshlngton; but It may ho for the best after all. I alludo to n street* scene which by this time la familiar to every Phil* odelphlan. Down in front of the venerable State* House there is stationed dally an Individual, or* rayed In the extremely singular and gorgeous fashion of the last century. With a tri*cornercd hat, ’ a long-tailed coat, knee-breeches, yellow stockings, and low shoes, ho forms a spectacle for country-folks to stare at and email boys to ad* mire. He is a very tall, lank personage, and bo has a sedate and solemn mien, as belUling one who represents the wisdom and the valor of the long-ago. No prigging can call forth cither a smile or a frown upon Ills inflexible countenance, and jeers from the throng are as Idle as sympathy. The occupation of this very queer old chap con* slsts In peddling lithographed copies of some re* markably-puor newspaper published a hundred years back. How many ho succeeds In disposing of a day, I have no idea; but the number.cannot bo large. Ho stalks austerely back and forth on the broad flagstones In front of Independence Hall; and, whenever I have scon mm,—and that ban been quite often,—ho has been In tho act of presenting a paper to some passer-by, who has as invariably refused tho profler. I sometimes fancy that the old fellow has received from his clothes somo impregnation of the okl Spartan spirit that animated the Revolutionary Fathers, and regards tho contumely of the crowd simply as an assault upon tho liberties of tho nation, per sonified In himself; and somo time, I confidently expect, ho will rise In his might and fall upon his oppressors, the gamins, until they will Indeed fuel that monarchism Is a failure. In the Swiss Department there are some very pretty watches. I uo not know os they arc any better than those oflercd by American manufactur ers, who have several extcnslvedlspiays; but there are certain specimens, exhibited by a Geneva Arm, which are unusually interesting in their construc tion. Tho collection Is small, and not arranged in a show-case of any size or elegance, and, for that reason, will probably not attract so much attention os they deserve. I would like to mention one watch. It Is very smalt, and set In a Unger-ring, with a circlet of diamonds around the dial. The works are wound up by turning the cir clet. The price of this trinket is &KJS. Another is fashioncu after tho same principle, only It is set in a small void ball, to bo used as a charm. The two halves of the ball are detached, ond winding la accomplished by turning tho back half. An ox cccdlngly-ncat pattern one has whoso case Is studded in close rows with pearls, tho Interstices being sot with diamonds. Tills Is worth 9540. On a yet smaller scale Is constructed a lady's stem winder,—tho whole watch hcingabauthalf-an-lncb In diameter. It Is studded with diamonds. The infinitesimal Is reached, however, in a four-Uno watch, ono-thlrdof an Inch across, stem-winding, and warranted to keep accurate time. IPs value Is SI,BOO. In elegant watches of ordinary size, I noticed one mlnuto-repcotcr, with chased gold case, having upon it* inner caso a painting or * ‘ Morning," af ter Orcuze, byGlandon. The price of the watch alone Is £SBO, while tho picture is valued at £BOO. There was also a thousaud-dullar watch, plaingold case, perpetual calendar, minute-repeater, chrono graph, recording the phones of tho muon, and tell ing whether the hour denoted on the dial Is night or daytime, -if there la anything more that a watch caa do, 1 suppose this watch will do It. Q. E. W. THE WAR OF THE DRUG MEN. Tn the Editor of Tht Tribune. Chicago, MaySff, 187th—'Through efforts origi nating In Cincinnati, a meeting of the wholesale druggists of the Northwest and West was held at Indianapolis In March. Before adjournment, os permanent organization was formed. Wc did not Join, because we believed thu combination were proceeding contrary to sound principles of political economy, ami therefore det rimental U> tho wholesale drug trade of Chicago.

Your issue of May JJ contained the follow ing reference to that Convention: “•Ostensibly the Convention Is called to agree upon a scale of prices for drugs, and organ ize a Drag Exchange after the style of Bt.

The opposition to the King Is from Chicago, and more especially the Urge firm of Fuller A Fuller, who utterly refuse to enter into the combination, or bo governed by the King's echcdule of price*. Of course, the stand taken by Fuller £ Fuller will bo appreciated by the retail dealer, and orery one will feel the Importance of standing by them In this contest. It Is very certain that orders from the retail druggist will not bo sent to any member of the Ring as long ns Fuller £ Fuller can oh* tain the goods at the present prices from the menu* factnrors.

It has not one quality to recommend It to public favor. The story is lm probable and uninteresting, the action meagre, and the dramatic movement almost Incomprehensible, Mies ought to have had bettor Judgment than that which she exercised in accepting this absurd piece. Kannelte, bo It understood, is the heiress of a vast estate, who has been defrauded of her rights by tho simple process of banding her over to an unprincipled old bailiff In the neighborhood. Ho roars her as bis own step-cblld, or rather na an adopted daughter, and does not even taka tho trouble tn hide her Identity by giving her a now name. The estate passes to her aunt and her aunt's son, of whom the former only Is cognizant of tho fraud. We need not follow the story further In order to show Its Inherent want of probability and vital Interest. The remainder of tho play is taken up in restoring tfannelle to her rights and causing the young mole cousin to fall In love with her. The action of the drama can bo shortly disposed of because there In so tittle of It. All remarks on this head must bo patterned aflor the celebrated lecture on * * The Snakes of Ireland." Tho characters come on the stage and relate the story. There Is nothing dramatic In this. One might belter buy the novel forfiO cents of some secondhand bookseller in Baltimore than pay $1 to hear a lame version of It in a theatre. Conflict of emotion, exhibited, not talked about or described. Is tho essential element of the genuine drama; and to throw a work of Uc lion Into the form of a dialogue Is not to write a piny. If the author of * ‘ Nnnnetto o' Wcnrlthorno" lias done more than thin In the stage version of her novel, the casual observer cannot say where she has done IL Tho dramatic construction of the play Is awk ward and weak. There Is no reason why it should begin as It docs or end as It docs. The minor characters, who are introduced at odd moments to enliven the action, and succeed not at all, arc Ilka the chorus In opera houllo. In one act they are knitters, ind la another ofilccra of the law. There Is neither form nor consistency In tho relation of scenes to each other and to the principal action. Tho first act passes tn tho hall of a castle, where all the personages In tho drama succesvlvcly enter and do their talking, the whole closing with an ir ruption of villagers, who sing a song on the spot, while not & soul belonging to the premises Is an tbo stage. A mill is blown up In the second act, but whether for tho purpose of killing tho young man or preventing the Introduction of machinery, on tno estate nobody can tell. In tho last act, Nannelte'e Identity ts revealed by an old woman. Impulsively and accidentally. If tho old woman had not happened to speak at that moment there would have been nothing to prevent the play from running on forever. . , , Tbo acting of tho piece Is quite as good as It de serves. Miss Mitchell makes the most of tho som bre and tame part of Sannette, but His so unusual a thing to see her deprived of all opportunity to exhibit light-hearted gaycly and comic perceptions that her admirers In the audience must have been disappointed and puzzled. Tho remaining parts were net all well treated. In tho case of a play so hopelessly dull and foolish it is useless to specify. IIOOLRY , S TIIEATUIS. “Pique" entered upon its third and last week at this theatre last night, and It promises to have a succession of good audiences If the weather con tinues favorable. Tbo alarm of fire, which was caused by tho burning-out of s saloon three doors from the entrance of tbo theatre, emptied tbo auditorium completely be tween the second and third acts, though, thunks to the efficient interference and calm manners of tho managers, there was nothing like a stampede ora panic. The tire being subdued, the audience re turned. Tho play bad continued, meantime, with out interruption, even when there were leas than half-a-dozen persons in the house. NEW CHICAGO THEATRE. Tho Minstrels continue to draw comfortable houses, and have reason to hope that they are on the high-road to assured prosperity. The per formance concludes with “Weston the Walker,” Instead of “Tonny Makes In a Fog," as previous ly announced. There is no particular novelty In the first part of the programme; Kirk and Drew, tho song mid dance men, are the now at tractions in tho second part. COL. WOOD’S MUSEUM. Mr. Frank E.
