Cornelius A, g.ns' Gas Fixtures la tn.
Charter Oak Iamrtnct Balldlng, Hart
ford, Connecticut.
New England has been for the past year In a state
of pleasurable excitement over the approaching
completion of the magnificent building of the
"Charter Oak" Life Insurance Company, of Hart
ford; and aa the thousands of travellers, both on
business and pleasure, pass dally each way between
Dew Tort and Boston, they are shown, with great
pride, this very elegant structure, which towers far
bore Its neighboring buildings, reminding one of
the prominence which the Boston State House as
sumes In the views of that city, and as our own
Cathedral appears as we approach Philadelphia by
way of the Pennsylvania Railroad.
This stately building Is of Concord granite, five
stories In height, and cor tains, beside the rooms
used by the Charter Oak Insurance Company for
their business, some seventy others, intended to be
occupied as offices, etc. Some idea may be formed
by our readers of Us extent from the dimensions,
Which are aa follows : Height, 120 feet ; depth, 160
feet; and front, 96 feet.
It gives us great pleasure to know that In the fit
ting up of this building, Philadelphia was repre.
" seined by the oldest and most extensive gas-fixture
manufacturers of the United States, Messrs. Corne
lius t Si ns.
Leaving the vestibule and entering the main hall,
the eye is at once attracted by the newel-post figure,
"Otto of Hungary." 1 he rotunda is lighted by a
very elegant and expensive twelve-light chandelier,
a combination of the French and Grecian styles.
The up a in room, which Is devoted to the business or
the Charter Oak Insurance Company, is furnished
with six two-light pillars and thirty-eight Que two
light brackets, fitted with argand burners, and white
?o ie si a es; the officers' desks in the same room are
lighted by six elegaut pillar lights to correspond.
This room ii also lighted by two large and unique
nwel pillars, which surmount the posts on
ither iMe of a grand stairway leading to the dlrec
lers'ioom All the fixtures in this room are from
tpeclti Hlirns made for this building. The oiflcers'
and directors' rooms are lighted by four handsome
6-lif.ht aiming chandeliers of tbeSaxon-4othio style,
and ft.ur 7-livht ctmniieilers or the Grecian pattern,
all having brackets to match. The second, third,
fourth, aLd Lfth stories contain very large and hand
some rooms, which are occupied as offices, and
lighted by sixty very elegant chandeliers, with
brackets to match, all being new and original de
signs. Ik-skies the fixtures we have than briefly
mentioned, there are many others which space will
not permit us to describe.
We congratulate Messrs. Cornelius & Sons upon
thtlr having fitted up so niagnlllcent a building,
and one which places their goods so prominent, y
before the whole New England public. To show the
great demand and high estimation In which the
work of Messrs. Cornelius & Sons is held, we need
only say that in addition to many fine buildings,
both public and private, which they have already
fitted up this season, they are now engaged upon the
construction of the gas fixtures for Wheeler's new
opera house, Toledo,. Ohio; New Saybrook C'o.'s
Seaside Hotel, Saybrook Point, Conn.; large new
hotel at Minneapolis, Minn. ; St. James' Protestant
Episcopal Chureh, Twenty-second and Walnut
streets, in this city, and "Home for the Aged and
Inflrm" of the M. K. Church, upon Lehigh avenue,
Dear Broad street, Philadelphia.
MUSICAL AND DRAMATIC.
"Rank" at the Arch.
Hank, the new play produced at the Arch last
evening by Miss Lina Edwin's company of New
York actors, treats tbe same theme as Robert
son's Caste, and points the same moral. The
object of both pieces is to demonstrate that the
artificial social distinctions are of comparatively
little moment in comparison with honesty, good
teartedness, and other of the virtues. The real
issue is, to a great extent, evaded, but on the
stage we expect to see strong contrasts, and so
long as tbe dramatic effect is good, we care
little for logic. In Caste the low birth of
"Esthbr" was not so much of an obstacle to her
reception into the aristocratic circle in which
ber husband moved as were her surroundings. A
man in marrying a wife must accept his
wife's relations, and it cannot be denied that
the "Marquise de St. Maur" was to a large ex
tent justified in objecting to "Eccles." In the
play of Hank aa aristocratic gentleman con
tracts a Scotch marriage with a low-born
maiden, and all goes happily until a brother-in-law
makes his appearance in tbe shape of a plg
Btye maker, who invites himself to dine with his
slater's husband, who criticizes the manners of
the guests and the cut of their garments, and
otherwise behaves in a manner well calculated
to make the man of rank heartily sick of his
bargain. Great stress is laid upon the honesty
of this hawbuck, but the sympathies of many
Who cannot be called 'aristocrats could scarcely
fall to enliit themselves en the side of the poor
husband. The plot of the play depends upon
tbe temptation held out to the husband to
deny bis marriage on account of there
having been no ceremony or public recognition
which would make It legal, and upon the efforts
of the brother, who discovers an intention of
this kind, to secure such recognition. The mar
riage Is finally established beyond peradventure,
but a separation between the husband and wife
takes place. After much unhapplness on both
sides they are again reunited, but with a pros
pect that the lady's brother, who in the mean
time bas contracted a taste for gin, will la the
future, as in the past prove a rather unwelcome
addition to the family circle. Rank has little of
the refinement of the plot, language, or charac
terization that distinguishes Caste, but It is a
very cleverly arranged piece, with a lively, ani
mated dialogue, and with some very effective
situations. It was well acted last evening, and
made an exceedingly favorable Impression,
as it has the not too common merit
of being entertaining. Miss Una
Edwin, who personated the heroine,
'Doe Maynard," Is a blonde of preposseislng
appearance and excellent abilities both as an
actress and as a singer. The performance was
artistic and pleasing, and it met with much cor
dial applause. Mr. George Clarke, who enjoys
aa excelleut reputation in this city, played
"Miles Hubbs," the pig-stye maker, in excellent
Style, and Mr. Mark Bates gave a creditable perse-nation
of "Curtis Maynard." Messrs. Harry
Eytinge and Edwin Wynduam were scarcely as
successful as could be desired as the representa
tives of a couple of British "swells," "Lord
Platedasp." and "Hon. Jocelyn Kalkes." Car-
rlcatures, no matter bow broad, should bear
some resemblance to the original model, and it
is difficult to accept the personations of these
gentlemen as being remarkably close copies of
nature. -
Jefferson as "lllp Vau Winkle."
Mr. Jefferson "Rip Van Winkle" has been
discussed, described, and criticized so often and
from so many differeat points of view that it is
a work of supererogation to attempt to say
anything new with regard to it, and It will be
sufficient if we inform our readers that Mr.
Jefferson appeared last evening at the Walnut
to a well filled bouse, and that he played with
all bis accustomed humor and pathos. Often as
the actor bas appeared in tuls part, it has not
yet palled upon the public taste, and the per
formance last evening was greeted by the usual
hearty manifestations of satisfaction and delight.
Thi City Amuteineuti,
At the Walnut Mr. Jm-eph Jefferson will
appear this evening as -Rip Vau Winkle."
At the Abch the play of Hank will be per-
