BERXHARDT'S DEBUT. Opening of Sara BrvnliaiiltV l»ra matie Season at RootH's Theater, X'ew York. Correspondence of Chicago Time*'. NEW YOKK, November 8.—Mille Sara Bernhardt opened her season in this country to-night at Booth's Theater, in "Adrienne Lecouvreus." The fame of the actress has aroused the public cu riosity and interest to the highest pitch, and her entree upon the American stage was witnessed by an enormous brilliant and kindly disposed audience. No such audience has hailed the ad vent of any foreign artist since the last appearance here of Charles Dickens. The crush in front of the theater was so great that hundreds of unfortunate people who held tickets were not able to push their way through the throng into the theatre until long after 8 o'clock. All the standing room was sold within half an hour after the box office opened, and through bad man agement the thousands of disappointed admittance seekers were allowed to im pede the entrance of the ticket holders.

Do we ever trouble our heads at all Where the jest may strike or the hint may fall? The latest chirp of that "little bird" That spicy story, "you must have heard"— We jerk away in our gossip rash, And somebody's glass, of course, goes smash, What fames have been blasted and broken, What pestilent sinks have been stirred By a word in lightness spoken, By only an idle word. A sneer—a shrug—a whisper low, They are poisoned shafts from an ambushed bow, Shot by the coward, the fool, the knave They pierce the mail of the great or brave. Vain is buckler of wisdom and pride To turn the pitiless point aside The lips may curl with a careless smile, But the heart drips blood—drips blood the while. Ah me! what hearts have been broken, What rivers of blood been stirred, By a word in malice spoken, By only a bitter word. A kindly word and a tender tone— To o...

Flies, bugs and reptiles of all sorts and sizes pass the winter dormant or frozen, and we have all seen those found in frozen firewood revived by the (ireheat. The toads found in solid rocks have been buried beyond the influence of the seasons, and they awaken from a sin gle winter that has endured for ages.

CONTENTED. Translations from Upland. Beneath tho liiulen shady, I sat, with my heart's ladye, Contented, hand in hand. There not a leaf was blowing. The sun was brightly glowing Down on the silent land. Tho time we could not measure, .. So lost were wo in pleasure, Scarcely our hearts did beat. We breathed no word—why should we? We questioned not—how could we? We knew that life was sweet We cared not for the-morrow, We knew not pain or sorrow, Love was not far away.

These notes. long since became, like any other pecuniary obligation of the govern ment, a debt to be paid, and when paid, tm be cancelled, as mere evidence of an indebted ness no longer existing. I therefore repeat what was said in the annual message of last year, that the retirement from circulation of United States notes with the capacity of legal tender in private contracts is a step to be taken in our pro gress toward a safe and stable currency, which shall be accepted as the policy and duty of the govern ment and the interest and security of the people.
