By Telegraph to the PP tehurgh Gaunt.) CHICAGO, September I.The National' Temperance Convention, called for the object of forming a Temperance Party_ for political purposes, assembled at Far well Hall, in this city, at eleven o'clock to-day. At the opening of the proieed. ings about three hundred persons were present in the hall, probably two hund red of whom were delegates. D. T. Pershing, of Indiana, called the meeting to order, and John Russell, of Michigan, was made temporary Chair man. He thanked the Convention for the brief honor. J. A. Spencer, of Ohio, and J. G. Bray man, of Illinois, were chosen temporary Secretaries. ' Mr. Goodall, of Connecticut, offered a resolution that all delegates be consid ered as members of the Convention who practice and advocate total tib.stinenee from. Intoxicating drinks, and who are in - favor of the legal prohibitiOn of "the manufacture, importation or sale of the same. • Gerritt Smith, of New York. opposed the idea that any one who should not fa 'vor the organization of a third distinct 'political party be allowed to become a) (member of the Convention. • - Chaplain Lioserer, of Indiana, was in favor of a third political party. If there was to be a third_narty, then he .and his pirty were with chem; if not, they might be counted out. Dr. Jewett, of Tennessee, was opposed to that part. of the call which advised the dissolution of old political parties. He could not agree to it. • Mr. Ransom, of New Jersey, also op. posed theidea. If a new party was the idea, it would rule out two-thirds of all present. They wanted the sentiment of the temperance men of the country. If they desired, a third party, it was all right. Ther was great diversion of opinion on this point. The meeting then adjourned to attend the notm•prayer meeting, and reassem bled at three P. M. The discussion in progress at the adjournment was re sumed. Mr. Ransom, of N. J., contended that no temperance men , should he excluded from the Convention. Whether he should gq the extreme length of form. ing a new party would have to be deci ded hereafter, Mr. Cushing, of Mass., differed from Mr. Ransom, and believed that the call was •an invitation for a convention of men in favor of forming a distinct politi cal party. • Mr. Goodall found the call ambiguous, part of it inviting all temperance men to attend, and another inviting only those who were in favor—of forming a distinct party founded on temperance principles. He was here for the purpose or grganizing•stich a party. -. Gerritt Smith said he !minted - Arra et:in vention to feel itself shut up to the terms 'of the call." He denied that the terms of the call were ambiguous; they meant distinct political action, the organization of an independent political party. Judge Black denied that the terms of the call Were =notclear - and explicit. They ..tneant the formation of a new party. Mr: Goodall's resolution was laid- on the table. - The Committee on Permanent Organi zation reported the following list of offi cers: PreAdent—Hon. James Black, Pennsylvania. Vice Presidents—Dr. B.

A correspondent of the Titusville Her. aid furnishes the following interesting sketch of a visit to the Hoosac tunnel. He says: Don an old oil suit—cover your intellectual brow with a rubber cap— pendant from which an ample cape de scends gracefully over your symmetrical shonlders—insert a blazing miner's lamp into thelrontispiece of the - cap aforesaid, jump on the platform of a machine sim ilar in some respects to the elevator of a first-class hotel—give the signal, and down you drop into a dismal shaft. As you descend your sensations will prob ably be novel, unless you are - accustomed to nightmare, in which case you won't mind it much. If you are at all imagin ative you may easily fancy that the fairy tales in which you revelled in childhood are being realized—that you are actuaally en route for, the regions peopled with genii, dwarfs, and gnomes. Three hun dred and fifty feet below daylight, the machlne strikes bottom with a thump, that almost shoots you "like coals from a shovel" into a gloomy cavern, in which you can at first see nothing but hundreds of miners' lights, which are bobsing around in a strange sort of will-o'wisp dance. You feel around in the darkness for the friendly dwarf who is to protect you from the antics and tricks of his fel low goblins, half expecting meanwhile that some elfin will twitch your cap from your head, or knock it over your eyes and trip you on your nose. Nothing of the kind occurs, however; -. you only stumble over the iron trac- of a horse railway, and this together with a familiar brogue, "Pat, let the gintilman pass," and "Mike, bring your pick this way," dispels all your underground fancies. Our visit consisted mainly in groping about over the masses of broken gueiss, 1 granite and quartz, and dodging gangs of laborers, shower - aths from overhead, and avoiding plunge baths underfoot, for the roof of this tunnel is a leaky affair; so leaky in fact, that our condrictor tells us that before proper drainage was effected, he was boated its entire length in three feet of water. Just as we approach the "heading," a blast of powder envelopes us in a dense sulphurous fog, and prevents our further advance, so we conclude to take the rest for granted, and wade out. Before returning, we ask how deep under ground we are at this point, and are in formed "about 1,500 feet." We are sails- fied—so back we go—jump into the ele vator, and in a few minutes are suddenly ushured into blinding sunlight and fresh air. The transition is as if the noonday sun should burst suddenly upon us in a cold foggy midnight. This tunnel is designed to shorten the distance from Troy to Boston, in order to enable the latter to compete with New Yorke - for the through train of the _gteat West. The trielpient — steisi!viere, taken' twenty years ago, and the undertaking' has brought three heavy "Contracting firms to insolvency, - Eleven years agOlt was taken hold or by the Stattiof Massachusetts, and that Commonwealth his sunk nearly - five millions of dollars in getting-into- the mountain only 5,800 feet at the east side and 4,500 feet at the West end. At the outset the state propohed to do a big thing. A Yankee'invented a machine for which he was paid the modest sum of $65,000. It was designed to .cut a core the exact size of the required tunnel. It was like an immense cart-wheel, armed at the rim with steel points or knives, which projected at right.. angles from the face of the wheel. The wheel was shoved broad-side to the mountain and caused to revolve - by powerful ma chinery. After working a year at an ad- ditional cost of $65,000, and progressing exactly 36 feet, making the excavation cost a little over 436,000 per foot, the ma ohinery—was thrown 'easide and sold for 'old iron.

NUMBER 201. FRAULEIN T/NNE, whose death was chronicled Saturday, has becu engaged for Several years in explorations of Af rica,iundertaken at her own expense. She started from Tripoli on the 28th of January of the present year, and arrived at Moorsook, in Fezzan, after ajonrney of about two months duration. She traveled leisurely, her caravan consisting ormore than fifty persons and seventy camels. All her followers, with one ex ception, were either Arabs or negroes, and she herself dressed like an Arab lady. She was looked upon by the Arabs with the greatest respect, and they called her "Beater Rey, that is Queen's Daugh ter." Her long sojourn snd travels in the Orient produced a total abhorrence of European habits, and she became embit tered against everything European. Be fore starting upon her last journey she determined to go even further in getting rid of everything not African about her,. and - so left her own and her servants' watches in Tripoli, in order to have nothing,_as she expressed it, "to remind her of the hated civilization." - But she soon found the need of something by which to know how time flies, and was compelled to write to the Dutch Consul at Tripoli, requesting him to send her a time keeper, not a European, but an Ara bian sand-clock or hour-glass. She was a zealous collector of plants, and had a number of camels loaded solely with blotting paper and immenee collections of plants. On her last journey Miss Tinne intended to proceed from Moorsook southward to Bornou, and return over Kordofan and Ezynt. NEAR Bucyrus, 0., a few days ago, while W.

Mr. Kaib's little grand-daughter, only six years did, clinging to the wall, flupported by a small stick. It seems that, playing near the well, she had , dropped a plaything in, and, in trying to reach it with a rake, had fallen in herself. She was taken out from the watitoihich was fifteen feet deep.
