Nothing daunie I, Chief I'arrls ordered his men into

the tire under control The entire loft was used for
storing plans and motlelB of vesels. In the centre
of the building, where Ihe fire seemed fiercest,
were stored the drawlogs for the contemplated new

of "Alia" the finest performance,, all things con

they have seldom shown before, so that tho opera
went on from sceno to scene with accumulating
power, nnd nn audience that had been cold atthe
ouiel was warmed lo n genuine enthusiasm.

Tho presentation of "The Ilnguenots' drew a
full house at tho Academy list night, the largest

tho perfonninco proved altogether a great success.
The cast of the principal characters was: The

I'lerson; ironfii, Jessie Ilanlett Davis; .ft. IJrfs,
Indwtg; Afpciv, stodlard; naoiil, Canlldns;
.Wuriff, Whlrney. It Is easy lo recall that each of
these pins his been often sung by greater artists
thin any in this list; yet In spite ut the comparative
lack ol Individual distinction, the opera was given
with a strong and even effect that was unusually
siilstactory. .Mr. Thomas conducted the orchestra
and the largo forces on the stage with character
istic firmness and refinement, and the many and
varied details of vocal and Instrumentsl effect Willi
which this marvelous composition overflows were
given with n completeness and beauty very seldom
attained. This Is truo not less of tho dainty vocal
passages such as the lovelv sceno for the Queen
and her women than ot the large ensembles like
the benediction ot the poniards, which was given
with an effect really thrilling. L'AIIemand Bang the

In Central Mexico, not vety tar fromlhn capital,
lies the oldest republic of the new world It is 1 lax
cala, the proudest city of all Mexico. It Is purely
Indian In origin and government. This strange
people remained unconqucrcd until the Spaniards
forced their entrance In 1519, and then Cortes treated
them as national allies, rather than enemies. He
turned their Indomitable courago and wonderful
skill In his favor and against their hereditary toes,
Ihe Aztecs, and thus was ho enabled to finally sub
due the Jtontezumas. Tho friendship of tho TIix
calans once pledged is Invincible, and the Spanish
leader relied on their promise lo coovey limber for
his ships over the mountains to Tcxcoco Lake, and
thereon he built the fleet that gavo to Spiln her
great American possessions. Tlaxcila Is perched
up among tho high mountains, aud rendered Im
pregnable by nature on three sides and fortified by
an enormous wall on the fourth which defied the at
tacks of the Aztecs In many wars. The people
have the air and manner ot freemen, nnd nre Inor
dinately proud of their ancient nnd honorable line
ago. For the prominent part taken In the conquest
by the Tlsxialans, Spain conferred nn them ex
clusive privileges, and to this div they maintain
them. None but full blooded Indians sit in their
senate,and their government Is tempered by wisdom
and moderation. In IM Spanish priests went over
to Mexico, nnd boou the caclgncs or chiefs of the
TUxcalans became Christians, and were hiptlsed
nnder Christian names, and that la why so many
In Hans have European cognomens, The Tlaxca

capital city, and In ciny life served In their
little army of defense, hut so seldom did
the waves of revolution roll up among their crags
lhit he became ttrcd of Inactive military duty and
a topted the trade ot silversmith. Ills phlcgruntlo
perseverance soon mastered this ca'llng, and he be

An admirable entertainment of muslo and reci

I ho pipers of New York and Philadelphia, where

John Itaymond has become a classic on the American
state, but one tnateren this practical and utilitarian
age still rinds perpetual delight In penisiug. llay
mund aud .Sellers have grown Into household words,
brimful of suggestions of mirth and drollery, and
also to some extent they have become synonyms,
and not undeservedly so. Whether basking
"In Paradise," or running "For Congress,"
misqueradtng as "trcsb, tho American," or
liillll fipanler lu "Iindou Assurance," the actor
seemed never able to dlv est himself of the trails of
I he amusing visionary whose peculiarities Otttd so ad
mirably the contours of his own individuality as to
Insure that well remembered, most mirvelous, and
Instantaneous of dramatic triumphs Hut In Mr.
Lloyds "Woman Hvler" Itaymond seems to have
git a little furtbir away from the luimorla'. Sellers
thiu he has ever hitherto been able to do, and for
tha s ike of tils sometimes questioned versatility we
are giai mat it Is so. 'l he sorrows or the much cn
g igcd, as of the over married man, have been done
with no little frequency upon the stage as well as in
the poignant realism of actual lite, but
Mr. Iloyda recombination of the familiar
Ingredients Is ginerally Bklllful and the re
sults most pleasing. Nearly all the fun of the
pl'-ce, as well It may be, ib In the hands, or rather
on the lips, ot the quaint Utile comedian himself, and
Is given wllh all of his charactetlslic seriousness
and comical Intensity. In the first act Iho tun Is
mainly verbal, consisting as It docs ot brightly
nrltlcnand amusingly evp'anatory dialogue, but
I henci forth to the rlnale in the mad-house absurd sit
uation and supirabundant anion assert their sway,
till the climax Is as lively as could be desired. As
a whole, the author may be said lo have fairly de
served the plaudits ot his fellow-Journalists of
Washington, who were numerous In the audience
throughout Die week, and Mr. lfajmond may be
congratu'ated on Ihe acquisition in Animurf Jlmulu
ofavaluablo addition to his gallery of eccentrlo
characters, 'i he supporting comany Is mostly well
selected for the lice of work required of It, and Its
leading lady, Jl Iss Helen Tracy, combines a stage
presence ai uuce imposing aun graceful, wiiu mucn
natural ease and chsrm of manuir. on Haturday
Mr. Itaymond favored his old-time admirers with
another gllmpso of the great apostle of Kyo Water
and other boons to humsnlty, without which a Itay
mond engagement would seem strangely incomplete.

the opera will be available to any manager who un
