Ih MtY BUILDING OF BY STRAWBRIDGE fc CLOTHIER, AND CLOSING SALE OF DRY GOODS ex AN EXTRAORDINARY SCALE. Wc hereby announce te the public that our Rebuilding Operations, new in pro gress, will include sonic radical changes in our present store, and during the summer materially reduce the size of the building. We find ourselves with the largest stock we have ever had at this stage of the season, aggregating almost A MILLION HUE IN TALI. And it is net only desirable, but necessary, that a large portion thereof should be closed at once. Although the great bulk of this stock was contracted for en a basis of values much lower than new, we have determined, after careful consideration, instead of storing away the goods, te distribute among our patrons and consumers generally, say one half, or FIYE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS' WORTH, At such Prices as may be necessary in order te speedily close. We have, there fore inaugurated A GEE AT CLOSING SALE In Every Department, and propose te distribute such bargains among the people, far and wide, as will be our most clfectivc advertisements for the new store we pro pose te ein in the early autumn. m FAKE PARTICULAR NOTICE: We de net claim te have reduced everything, for there are certain goods in such limited supply that we can scaraely meet the demand. SUCH GOODS WIIL NOT HE REDUCED. But outside of these a radical mark-down has token place, and many goods that are selling well are marked away down te insure their immediate clearance. The opportunity te secure bargains is a very unusual one, and buyers of Dry Goods the country ever should promptly put in appearance at our house. Our organization and our facilities for distributing large quantities of goods, are believed te be unequalled, but every effort will be made te strengthen it and increase its ulliciency during this closing sale, se that all who visit us may be waited en prompt ly and te their entire satisfaction. Discarding all sensational or exaggerated statements we threw upon the market this immense stock of Dry Goods, determined te sell the amount named at whatever sacrifice may be necessary te accomplish the object. All who need Dry Goods or who can be induced by the certainty of saving, te an ticipate their wants, should visit us in person. Frem present indications the goods will be sold tee rapidly te insure in all cases perfect satisfaction in the filling of orders through the Mail Order Department during the continuance of this great closing sale.

Hymn singing is net always appropri ate te occasions, and leaders often make singular selections. A minister preached a solemn sermon en the .judgment, and gave out at the close, "Thutawlul day will surely come." which the choir sang te the lively air "Coronation." "Brether," said the pieacher te the chorister in the vestibule, why didn't you sing ' Yankee Deedle '." " At an immersion baptism en the bank of a river, as each candidate, male or female, emerged diipping from the water, the people interjected the favorite levivalist cheius, "They leek like men in nnilerin, They leek like men of war." At a protracted meeting one of the hardest families in the neighborhood, by name ltauspn, were persuaded te go te the front i; subjects for prayer. The lejeicing pjjle shouted lustily in pros pect of half-a-dozen much-needed conver sions : "The year et jubilee is come ; ISeturn, ye ransomed sinner.--, home." This made old Hansom mad. lie took it as a personal insult, get up from his knees and took his bedraggled better-half by the arm, saying aleud: "Come en, old woman, they don't want the like of us here ; come en, boys and gals," and led the whole tribe out of church in flaming dudgeon ! An English leader set the ad vent hymn, "Christ the Lord is risen to day hallelujah !" te the Tyrolese waltz, and a Southern campmcetijig Christian sung " When I can read my title clear," te the minstrel melody "Wait for the wagon and we'll all take a ride !' ' Trey 2'imcs. Why McMuues Is Sert'. . senator Lumen te "Until." A very severe bl'vw v;is dealt at Grant by the few rich nun, Childs and ethers, who had the coaching of him when he came te our city after his return te America. Ne teceptien ever given in Philadelphia was a patch te that. The heart of the people was in it, and the most lavish energies vT the Republicans were bestowed upon the distinguished guest ; but he did nut give the working men of the party any portion of his attention. He was being carried off fiem among us te clubs, suppers, break fasts and rides by the half-a-dozen people about him, until it get be a matter of remark among the boys that General Grant did net care anything for us. When the Grand Army of the Republic paraded in his honor he stayed just long enough te see them go by. and then hastened oil te something social among the blue-bleeds before they could come back and shake hands with him. At the municipal recep tion held at St. Geerge's hall, which was especially get up in his honor, he hardly tasted his soup before they rushed him off, te letnrn among us no mere, and go te their SatiiMlayJnight club, a literary circle. The consequence was that before Grant left the city the labeung, enthusiastic poli ticians among the Republican paity were completely scared. It was then that Blaine stepped in and made his impression. Mr. Childs and that set had a full week te en joy General Grant after the public festivi ties weie done. 13ut their greediness te absorb him has partly produced this dis affection, which I deplore, in our delega tion. He Tested It. In eidcr te attest the acoustic piepcr ties of the convention hall in Chicago, the Republican committee borrowed the voice of lien. W. J. Hynes, a leading Democrat, who possesses, we arc told, one of the best "mass meeting voices in the country." The test took place Tuesday af ternoon in the presence of quite an audi ence, including Conkling, Hear and etheis. Te the intense amusement of the audience Hynes mounted the stage and delivered this speech : "Fkli.ew-Citizens : This is a moment ous occasion. This is a great country. It is here the bird of freedom was born. It is here that he steed with one claw en the Recky Mountains, the ether en the Alle ghenics, its beak pecking the north pole, and its tail fanning the'encly alligator in the swamps of Fleriila,and proclaimed freedom thiougheut the world. Enthusiastic ap plause. Ileie is where our forefathers bled and died ; every feet of this soil is sanctified by patriot graves, and may my tongue cleave te the reef of my mouth, this uplifted arm hang palsied te my side, these eyes become sightless, if ever I go back en it. Sink or swim, live or die, sur vive or perish, this is my ticket. Tumult uous applause." It was heard in every corner of the hall ; the acoustics pronounced perfect and the speech magnificent. Death of the Empress of Russia. The wife of the Emperor of Russia, whose death has been long looked for, and whose dying condition has a dozen times been mentioned by cable, has at last finally succumbed te the violent malady which afflicted her. Her disease, for the pallia tion of which she has spent many winters in Nice, was consumption, and she seems te have been recently se ill that she was happily unaware of the serious attempts made bythe Nihilists upon the life of her husband. The Empress, who was the daughter of the late Grand Duke Leuis,of Hesse, was in her fifty-sixth year at the time of her death. Her name before mar riage was a long one Maximiilcnne Wil helmina Augusta Sephia Maria. Her pestmarital name wa-sMaria Alexendrevna. She left six children, the Czarevitch, Alexander Alexandrevitch, who has three children liviug, having been born 1845 ; Prince Vladimir, beru in 1847; Prince Alexis, born in 1830 ; Princess Maria Alcxandrevna, born in 1853 ; Prince Ser gius, born in 1857, and Prince Paul, born in 18C0. The Vesper Bells. " In the cathedral of Limerick tlftrc hangs a chime of bells which were cast in Italy by an enthusiast in his trade, who fixed his home near the menastry where they were first hung, that he might enjoy their sweet, solemn music. In a political revo lution the bells were taken away te some distant land, and the maker himself be came a refugee and exile. His wanderings brought him, after many years, te Ireland On a calm and beautiful evening, as the vessel which bore him floated en the placid besom of the Shannen, suddenly the even chime pealed forth from the cathedral towers. His experienced car caught the sweet sounds and he knew that his lest treasures were found. His early home, his friends, his beloved and native land, all the best associations of his life were in these sounds. He laid himself back in the beat, crossed his arms upon his breast and listened te the music. The beat reached the wharf but still he lay motionless. They spoke te him, but he did net answer. They went te him, but his spirit had fled. The tide of memories that came vibrating through his heart at that well-known chime had snapped its life-string. One or Twe Gathered Together. Fer many years a story has floated around through the press te the effect that Dr. Lyman Beecher once preached a pow erful sermon te one person. Owing te a storm, no one else came, and the geed man tried te de his best, as he always did, even with the one soul, which was thereby con verted. The story has been repeatedly de nied by these who ought te knew all all about it, but it is still afloat, despite the denial. It is related that the late Dr. William Patten, of New Yerk, during a severe snow storm, held a regular service, all except the Sing ing, with the sexton and a stranger in -the gallery. The sermon impressed the latter, who a-few days later called en the pastor, sayiug he could net rid his mind of the truth heard, and seen thereafter he connected himself with the church, of which he continued a useful member. When Dr. Gee. W. Bethune was pastor of a Reformed church in Philadelphia, two gentlemen of prominence, happening te be in the city, concluded te attend his weekly evening lecture. It was very stormy, and only the sexton, an old woman and these two strangers were present four in all. One of them says : "The Dr. rose, gave ent a hymn, and sang it himself. After prayer and eloquent reading of scripture,he delivered one of the most profound lectures I have ever heard. My friend said : Why did you net keep that lecture for a better night it was tee geed te threw away upon us?' The Dr. replied : ' It is my duty te preach the gospel te the best of my ability under all circumstances, and it is wrong te punish these who come in stormy weather ler the delinquency of ethers.' I set him down for a great mail, and concluded that he preached the truth for the love of the truth, and net for the praise of men." " Zuch " Tayler's Salary. The Heuse of Representatives en Tues day amended the deficiency appropriation bill se as te pay the salary of General Zachary Tayler, as president of the United States, te his hcirs-at-law. The amend ment, which was moved by Mr. J. R. Tucker, of Virginia, directs the secretary of the treasury te pay te Mrs. Bettie Tay Tay eor Dandridge and Mr.-'.Sarah Kuex Weed, daughter and granddaughter of Gen. Tay Tay eor, tiie sum of $25,000, less se much of his salary as the late president or his fami ly may have drawn during the year. It will be remembered that President Tayler, who was inaugurated March 4, 1849, died July 9, 1850. It is the custom in such cases ler Congress te vote the year's salary te the president.'. widow, or his ether legal representatives. But Gen. Tayler's family at that time held large estates, and declined a preposition which was made them te introduce a bill te pay te the widow the remainder of the year's salary. The preposition te pay this money new grows out of the fact that Mrs. Dandridge (who is Gen. Tayler's daughter and is the widow of Cel. Bliss, the general's chief of staff throughout the Mexican war), and Mrs. Weed, daughter of Surgeon Weed, are net in geed circum stances. Gen. Richard Tayler, before his death, ami his heirs since, h.ive relin quished all claim upon this money in favor of the mere needy and helpless ladies. The Heuse adopted the amendment without dissent as seen as its object was explained, and the Senate will doubtless make haste te confirm it. Church Towers. The towers of Cologne cathedral are new the highest in the world, the height they have attained being 5 feet higher than the tower of St.Nichelas' church in Hamburg, which has hitherto been the highest edifice. Ultimately they will be 51 feet 10 inches higher. The Cologne Gazette gives the following as the heights of the chief high buildings in the world : Towers of Cologne cathedral, 524 feet 11 inches from the pavement of the cloisters, or 515 the fleer of the St. Nicholas, at 1 inch ; cupola of 4G9 feet 2 inches ; feet 1 inch from church ; tower of Hamburg, 473 feet St. Peter's, Reme, cathedral spire at Strasburg, 465 feet 11 inches; Pyramid of Cheeps, 449 feet 5 inches; tower of St.Stepheu's, Vienna, 443 feet 10 inches ; tower of St. Martin's, Landshut, 434 feet 8 inches ; cathedral spire at Freiberg, 410 feet 1 inch ; cathe dral of Antwerp, 404 feet 10 inches; cathedral of Florence, 390 feet 5 inches ; St. Paul's, Louden, 305 feet 1 inch ; ridge tiles of Cologne cathedral, 3C0 feet 3 inches ; cathedral tower at Madgeburg, 339 feet 11 iuces; tower of the new Votive church, at Vienna, 314 feet 11 inches; tower of the Ruth-haus, at Berlin, 288 feet inches ; towers of Nertre Dame, at Paris, 232 feet 11 inches. A Werd te the Wise. Philadelphia Ledger. If it be true, as reported, that any enum erator of the census has permitted an other person or persons te go around with him te dwellings while making his inquir ies, or if he has repeated te ether persons the answers he gets at the houses where he calls, that enumerator don't under stand his obligations, and is unfit for the duty. He is bound by law net te disclose the answers he gets ; he is bound by his oath also ; and if he violates the law or his oath by communicating te anybody but his official superiors the information he gets in the discharge of his duties, he is punishable by heavy penalty. If there shall happen te be any thoughtless or loesc-tongued enumerator who tells what he hears in census taking this hint should straighten him up. .lesh Killings says it I wnz called upon te mourn ever a dead mule I should stand in front of him and de mi weeping.

Many persons who are weak and sickly at this season of the year are at a less te knew what will restore their health. It has lately been found by experience that the use of b peer's PortUrape wine is one et the best re storatives known. Physicians, clergymen and temperance advocates should encourage the use of Pert Grape and thus aid the cause of temperance and moderation. It is especially recommended te families for its purity, ex tiislte flavor and health properties. Medical men certify te its valuable medicinal powers.
