Hex. E. L. Applegatr's LECi-rus.
On Monday night,' as announced last week,
lion. E. L. Applegate delivered his great histor
ical tectnro entitled, "The Koreish Mohammed
and Al Koran," at tho Court House in this city,
the proceeds to innure to tho Albany Collegiate
Institute. A very good audience was in attend-
-nco not as large, however, as we hoped and
expected to see, or as the merits of the lecture de
mandedand from the strict attention given to
the lecturer throughout we should judge they
were all amply repaid for the time and money
thus spent. Having devoted thirty years of his
life to literary matters, Mr. Applegate comes be
fore an audience with a miAM well stored with
f?t9.' mB n" !' coininand of language, his
inimitable gestures, manner and style of delivery,
are so unique, so entirely different from the "or
thodox" style, that he at once enlists the whole
and undivided attention of his entire audience.
We believe that ninety-nine men out of every hun
dred who have heard Mr. A. lecture, wonld give
him the preference over any other they have yet
heard on the Pacific coast. We are sorry that
we have not space at this time for a fuller and
more complete notiee of this excellent lecture. Ia
the hands of Mr. Applegate the subject nuder dis
cussion assumed an entire now phase, and was
clothed with an interest that hitherto we had en
tirely failed to discover. Wo believe Mr. A's
"heavy suit" is lecturing, and he will fail to do
his whole duty if he does not devote at least a
portion of his time to it.
At the request of frtends and admirers, Mr.
Applegate consented to deliver a lecture at the
Congregational Church, on Tuesday evening, on
he subject of-'The Book of Job It origin and
Doctrines." bnt the audience being small, owing
to the stormy weather and other causes, the lec
ture was not delivered ; Mr. A., however, treated
those present to one of his charming and most
entertaining "talks," of probably an hour's du
ratiun, giving a general outline of the subject as
he would hare treated it had the lecture been delivered
