Good Templar's Entertainment.
Tbe dramatic entertainment given
by the Good Templars in their Hall In
this city last Tuesday right, was large,
ly attended, and gave very general
satisfaction. The drama of "Ten
Nights in a Bar Room." so vivkl in
its representations of the various ex
periences in the life of die Inebriate,
was well performed in most of its,
characters. Tbe audience seemed to
regard the representation of tbe char
acter of " Switcbel" with tbe most
favor. Tbe songs rendered In charac
ter, by Messrs. Hart and Clement,
were very good and amusing. "A
Scene in an Albany Bar Room during
tbe Fair." was folly up to Albany's
beat lick in that line, and possibly a
Utile beyond. It was a splendid repre
tentatkMi of a saloon row. The Bar
ber Shop scene was funny, as tbe
laughter all over the house Indicated.
Tbe last act was a " side-splitter," a 1
laogh-and-grow -fat-er. sure. We
laugh yet. Give us more of 'em.

We enjoy life here around our huge

consequently leaving our lire In ien

our city Emmasville. We can liear
distinctly tlie stroke of the large bell
at Lebanon, and thought we heard
Taylor lecturing but they must come
to us or they will not llourisli.
The canal is progressing as rapidly
;is could be expected with such in
clement weather as we have been hav
iug. So much rain has fallen as to re
tard the digging in the deep cut"
materially. Two weeks of good
weather, however, would enable the
contractor to go through it like a mice.
Alter tbe canal is finished the finest
kind of lumber can be floated to
Albany, whicli alone would be of the
greatest advantage to her, beside tbe
additional interest of an almost un
limited water power which it would
afford for the running of mills, etc.
Mr. Morris contract is for 3,500
feet which takes che canal to the edge
of the prairie. Tbe cutting averages
twelve feet in depth, twenty feet wide,
at the bottom and sloped one by one.
Tlie cutting is all the way through
timber, and some of tlie trees and
old stumps tliat must be removed are
worthy of mention for their size, one
of them taking forty yards of dirt to
midermluerit, and three weeks steady
work to get it clear for the plows.
