As stated yesterday after the court was called s. S. Blair esq., in a very neat and appropriate speech detailing the purposes of the assembling moved the adjournment and the clerk was ordered to Transfer the list to the fourth monday of the present month. After music from the opera of a la Fille Der regiment a a. Augustus Landis chairman of the committee of arrangements announced that Hon. Thaddeus Banks had been chosen to preside at the meeting with Hon. John Williamson of Huntingdon and Hon. John Fenton of Cambria As vice presidents. After the formal opening with prayer by Rev. I. H. Barron pastor of the presbyterian Church of Hollidaysburg president Banks returned his thanks for the compliment entered him on making him the presiding officer on this Happy occasion. He continued by instituting a comparison Between the present Beautiful place of meeting and the old methodist Church and old court House in which in former Days the sessions of the court had been held. Paying in passant a compliment to the first presiding judge of the county judge Jeremiah s. Black he concluded his speech by congratulating All parties concerned on the completion of the new Temple of Justice. After the rendition of music judge Dean occupied the attention of the audience for an hour and a Quarter with an intensely interesting historical address the great length of which precludes its publication to Day but which we will commence in our next Issue. The Heartiest Praise was bestowed upon the judge for the excellence of the production. Hon. Samuel Calvin was then introduced and for a Brief period entertained the audience with a characteristic speech the con delusion of which was greeted with applause. He gave Way to judge Jeremiah s. Black who said he simply Rose to apologize for not making a speech. He was victim of a contrivance. His attendance was Only secured conditional on his not being called upon for a speech and not until he had entered the court room and saw his name on the programme did he imagine anything of the kind but rather than say nothing and disappoint the friends assembled he would make an apology for not speaking. Appealing mock lugubrious by for their sympathy he continued in a few minutes speech of pith and humor and was As entertaining As great men on in can be when they unbind. Ile concluded with complimenting Blair county on the erection of the a most perfect Structure of its kind in this country simple in the abundant wealth of its he was applauded to the Echo. Col. R. A. Mcmurtrie being called upon responded by saying that As so much had already been heard from the attorneys of Blair county he would suggest that we hear something from the other counties in the District and gave Way to judge w. W. Hall of Bedford who remarked that he Felt he ought not to consume much time but was grateful for the privilege of being present to participate in an occasion such As he had never before witnessed. The proceedings were eminently appropriate Aud thought the idea of consecrating this building to the dispensing of Justice one which might Well take rank with the dedication of churches to the worship of the god of Justice and mercy. Hon. R. L. Johnston of Cambria county rising in response to repeated Calls remarked that the occasion was an unusual one but then this is an unusual court House and the demonstration was appropriately and correspondingly an unusual one. In reviving reminiscences of the old times much merriment was occasioned by the statement that he was a clerk at the a Morris county election where the majority in favor of partitioning Blair off from old Huntingdon county was fifty six in a a poll of eleven Hundred the population of the election District being about three Hundred and fifty. He was followed by judge Orvis of Centre who excused himself from any further detention of the audience from what would otherwise have been their Noonday meal. Others were called for but responded All with one Accord Aud excused themselves. In response to invitation Hon. John Williamson of Huntingdon Rose and in a few Brief pertinent and eloquent remarks on the majesty of the Law riveted the attention of the audience and entertained them in conclusion with a few humorous reminds r. Description of the court House by l Uvil s. Gendell architect. The new building is erected upon a nearly level Terrace formed by raising the entire lot of ground to an average height of Over three feet above the sidewalk of the two streets. The Terrace is surrounded by Low Stone Walls and provided with a wrought Iron railing. The ascent from the sidewalks is by a Broad Hight of Steps on each Street the Entrance on Allegheny Street being thirty four feet Broad. At each Corner of the Wall and at each Entrance Are Large Stone posts surmounted by ornamental wrought Iron Gas standards. The Terrace has Broad landings and foot walks Laid with Large Flag stones. The spaces Between the foot walks and the Walls Are Laid out in grass and shrubbery. The design and color of tile Stone work connected with the Terrace being the same As the building give to the whole a Unity of expression Aud materially adds to the dignity of the building. The building is in the modern gothic style of architecture with the italian treatment. This style while it is directly founded upon medieval gothic omits Many of the details of the latter or adapts them to modern requirement the exterior Walls of the building Are of Stone. The facing is of Cut Stone Tho greater portion of which is from the Massillon quarries the color of the main body of the work is a warm Rich sunny Buff while the alternate Arch stones with the Hood mouldings Over the Arches the string courses cornices and Many of the other ornamental portions of the work Are of a Beautiful deep peach Bloom color. The two colors present a sufficiently Strong Aud yet a very agreeable contrast. While the different parts Are thus sufficiently emphasized the effect of the whole is exceedingly harmonious and pleasing Aud free from that a Patch work appear Auoe which is the Bane of much modern architecture where stones of two or More colors Are employed. Inside the exterior Stone Walls Are four and a half Inch Brick Walls erected separately from the e Stone work to which they Are tied with wrought Iron anchors. There is an Lair space of one and a half inches Between the Stone Walls and the Brick lining. Thus Freedom from dampness is secured. The plan of the Structure bears some resemblance to the letter in Width it is seventy feet on the front eighty three and a half feet on the rear and fifty five and a half feet across the narrow part. Its total depth is one Hundred and thirty two and a half feet. The front portion of the build Jug is two stories in height surmounted with a High slated roof. The rear part is three stories High the upper Story being contained within a mansard roof having ornamental gabled Stone dormers. At each front Angle of the bonding is a Large Square Tower surmounted by an ornamental slate covered roof the total height from the ground to the top of the roof being eighty three feet without the Iron cresting. On the front Between the two towers Are three Entrance doorways facing Allegheny St these Are approached from the Terrace by a flight of Steps thirty four feet Long with a Broad Landing at the top which forms the floor of an Arcade. This Arcade consists of three Arches carried by coupled columns. It is Twenty seven and one half feet High from the pavement of Terrace to the top of the weathering of the Cornice. A parts Are elaborately executed in Stone and the effect is very bold and imposing. Above the Arcade Are three trader red windows opening into the court room. Over these is the front Gable of the main roof. The Hight of this Gable from the Terrace to the top of the Stone finial surmounting it is seventy seven feet. In this Gable is a Niche in which is placed a statue of Justice eight feet High executed in Amherst Stone. In the rear building is another Large in trance doorway facing Union Street. At the intersection of the front and rear buildings is the main or clock Tower. This is a very massive Structure Nineteen feet Square. Where it appears above the roof it is a perfectly Plain Shaft Aud so continues until it reaches the Belfry stage. Here Are Large twin openings on each Side provided with ornamental louvre boards made sufficiently open to freely allow the sound of the Bell to escape. The hell is one of meneely amp co�?Ts., is very Sweet in its tone end weighs two thousand five Hundred and fifty pounds. Above the Belfry is the clock Section Corbel led out to overhang the work below thus making the Tower at this part Twenty two Aud one half feet Square. The dials Are of thick heavy ground Glass Aud Are ninety nine inches in diameter. At night time they can be lighted by Gas on the inside. From the panelled Walnut doors of a substantial character which slide into firring behind the Walls. In the Arches Over Are highly ornamented tracery also executed in Walnut. Under the tracery and behind the outer doors Are Light Fly doors of Ash. The three doors facing Union Street open into a Vestibule twelve by thirty eight feet. At each end of this Vestibule stairways to the second Story Are started Aud Are continued within the Corner towers before mentioned. The door facing Union Street opens into a Vestibule fifteen Aud one half feet wide which being continued forms a corridor of that Width by the length of the entire Back building about seventy eight feet at the further end is another stairway to the second Story. The Vestibule of the front Aud the Cross corridor of the rear building Are connected by a corridor nine feet wide running through the Centre of the main building. The Walls of these corridors Are appropriately ornamented with pilasters which support beams below the ceiling. The i prs of All excepting the front Vestibule where there is solid ground Are formed by Iron beams Aud Brick Arches above which is Laid a pavement of Minton a Boylish encaustic tiles formed in panels of Rich colors and of Beautiful design.

Tile two Side portions Rake from this height Down to the cornices at the Side Walls which Are Twenty five feet above the floor. The three principal divisions thus formed in each Hay Are again subdivided into smaller panels by Purling and Cross Purling. In each Centre panel is ornamental Wood work pierced for ventilation. The principal Cross ribs of the ceiling Are brought Down on the Walls where they receive apparent support from round columns of yellow Pine which have carved capitals pc. These columns Are carried by heavy corbels built in the Walls. The benches for the audience the bar railing the judges chairs and Bench clerks desk the jury and witness boxes the tables and other furniture of the court room also the or windows. The hardware used in finishing is principally of real Bronze. The Carpenter work is All executed in a Good Workmanlike manner by or. George a. Cochran of Pittsburgh. The window frames sashes Aud inside blinds Are of Walnut. The windows in the Halls and stairways Are All glazed with stained Glass of pleasing design in Cathedral tints Aud set in Lead work. This work was done by or. G. Ii. Gibson of Philadelphia. A other windows throughout the first and second stories have French plate Glass each Sash being in one Light. Some of these lights Are quite Large those in the Side windows of tile court room Mea Suring fifty by eighty six inches. The building is thoroughly lighted in All parts there being no dark Corners in it. The inside Walnut blinds alluded to Are placed to All the windows in the building excepting those having stained Glass or Iron shutters. The blinds to the court room windows Are finished at the head in the Arches with finely Cut and elegant tracery. Tile Walls of All vestibules Halls corridors and rooms and All plastered ceiling throughout Are painted in colors All being done in encaustic and in accordance with the designs of the architect. The ceilings of the court room being in the natural Wood is oiled with color decoration sparingly introduced and Only in sufficient Quantity to make the ceiling harmonize with the Walls which Are highly decorated with various hands &c., generally in a tile patterns a with Rich colors. The judges recess is especially Rich in color. The different architectural members Are tipped with Gold and the panel in the rear is Brilliant with an ornate diaper work design in the richest colors and Gold. The arched head of this panel is filled with a painting of the state coat of arms. The whole effect is extremely Rich without being in the slightest degree Gaudy. On the contrary although High colors Are employed the general effect is that of a quiet and perfect Harmony Well suited to the pm poses of the room. Other portions of the building while not so elaborately decorated As the court room have yet a great variety in the tints employed no two rooms being alike. All parts have an air of elegance and refinement wit i a due amount of Rich colors introduced to give life to the whole. The execution of this work is by messes. Carlile amp Joy of Philadelphia Aud is highly creditable to those artists. There is a cellar under the entire building with the the front vestibules. It is thoroughly lighted and Venti lated by Large windows. The building is heated by steam. The apparatus is placed in the cellar one boiler heating the entire building. The steam is conveyed by pipes from the boiler to the radiators the most of which Are placed next the cellar ceiling at the Bottom of Brick flues built in the Walls. At these Points fresh air is introduced which being heated by the radiators ascends the flues and is discharged into the various rooms of the building. Six radiators Are also placed in the court room under some of the Aid windows. These Are intended to he used Only in unusual cold Winter weather when they will be merely auxiliary to the others before mentioned. The apparatus is arranged so that any one part of the building eau be heated without necessarily turning on steam to the remaining portions. The steam heating is by or. Milton Foreman of Philadelphia. As the heated air is delivered into the rooms through the warm air registers the cold and vitiated air is drawn off through ventilating registers placed next the floor. These open into flues which connect with ducts passing under the cellar floor All of which discharge into the ventilating Shaft before described. An ascending movement is Given to the air in the ventilating Shaft by warming it by the waste heat from the steam boiler which heat is thus utilized. Thus in Winter season when the doors and windows Arn closed tile Means of ventilation described will constantly Shauge tile air in the rooms by in percept Hie currents. Thus while fresh air is admitted through the warm air registers the vitiated air is carried off through others. The Gas fixtures like the other furniture of the building Are made from original designs by the architect by messes. Cornelius amp co., of Philadelphia. They Are in character with the building. Those for the court room Aud some other portions of the building Are very Rich and unique in design. We have allowed or. Bendell full swing and he has Given us a Complete and technically Correct description of the details of the building and it Only remains for us to write up the external appearance and general effect mouldings to finials a part is cur vent ional carving but the most is what is called natural foliage that is carving where the natural Type is More closely followed. In the latter we recognize Many of the leaves and Flowers. Some of the corbels represent human Heads. In these we have different nationalities illustrated others Are Ideal Heads others Are likenesses of different prominent citizens of Blair county. Tile carving is All artistically executed by men of Eminence in that profession the Stewart bro�?Ts., of Philadelphia but not Only the carving but the entire Stone work is most admirable. Or. John Schreiner of Allegheny City pa., was the general contractor for the building and the manner in which he has fulfilled his contract in the different branches reflects great credit upon him. His special Branch however was the Stone work As he is by Trade a Stone Mason and he has in this building shown that lie is a Complete master of his business. Not Only do experts speak of it As being an unusually flue Job Bat the Quality of the work is at once evident even to the inexperienced Eye. The cutting of All parts is exceedingly Well done and particularly tile ornamental portions such As Arches string courses cornices amp a. They Are All very finely dressed and aet perfectly True. All the work is very solid and there Are no settlements perceptible in any portion of the building. The architect peaks in the highest terms of the painstaking carefulness and skill with which or. Schreiner has carried oat Bis designs Aud of the cheerful alacrity with which or. S. Lias complied with his wishes. A a the a a baby a Best Friend is the most appropriate title for or.

The court room is remarkably the air of solidity of stateliness and dig i successful in that Quality so essential to to which pervades the whole. Aud while the Comfort and indeed the Utility of any it is picturesque and varied in its general Public Hall especially a court room Viz outline there is no apparent Effort or in its acoustic properties which Are excellent. While sound is not in the slightest degree muffled there is on the other hand no tendency to Echo or reflected sound. The rear stairway Hall mentioned gives Access to the rooms of the rear building As straining after an effect. The position of the clock Tower while quite unique is very happily chosen. The effect is to unite the principal divisions of the building and to give Harmony or a proper artistic balance and dignity to the whole composition. Another effect the design has is that the general proportions and the Harmony of the Tower is gabled on each Side above the i and a half by Twenty nine feet a retiring parts Are so admirable that the building late.
