Andrews' Opera Company.
The third and final appearance upon last
evening of the above company was in the

given to very much the largest house of the
season, and the audience were not disap
pointed in the way in which the company ac
quitted themselves in the beautiful but diffi
cult opera. The cast brought out all the
latent talent of the company and developed
the fact that their friends have much to hope
from them. The Serpolette of Miss Rosen
bury was very well taken, and as before dem
onstrated her voice proved of a very sweet
and attractive quality. The great success of
the party, however, was the Henri of Mr. Al
lison and the Germaiue of Laura Rhodes,
both of whom were recalled.
Mr. George Andrews in the
difficult role of Gaaspad proved
himself a very fair actor. The party have

MRS. FRANK LESLIE'S NUPTIALS.
The /.mil/ to be "Wedded Soon to the Marquis
Mrs. Frank Leslie, widow of the well
known publisher, is to be married very soon
to the Marquis de Leuville, an Auglo-French
nobleman who is reported to be all that a
maiden's fancy ever dreamed a nobleman
should be. Three years ago Mrs. Leslie first
met the Marquis, and after a brief courtship
he made a formal tender of his heart aud
title. She was too much engrossed in extri
cating her husband's property from embar
rassment and did not smile upon her noble
suitor. He was persistent, however, and
the marriage wiil be celebrated very soon.
The couple will make their home in New
The Marquis de Leuville is forty-two years
old, and having; travelled all over the world
is anxious to settle down. He possesses an
independent fortune and it is said is desi
rous of figuring in local society. He was
born in England and his family dates back
800 years or more. He claims descent from
Oliver de Lourucourt, 1055, and his family
name was given by Louis XIV. in June,
The Marquis is said to be a man of broad
culture, a thorough linguist, and one of
nature's born poets, If his volume entitled
"Entre Nous," which has gone through
eight edition, may be taken as an index.
He is fond of hunting, and as a pistol shot
he has a reputation second to no one in
France. He has devoted some time to art
and several of his pictures have hung in Eu
ropean galleries. He is a member of half a
dozen societies—literary, artistic and scien
tific, and in spite of all these attainments is
said to be a thoroughly good fellow.

The Driver ofthe Russian Sleigh.
[New York Cor. Atlanta Constitution.]
In Central park, the other day, I saw a
striking span of fast horses drawing a Rus
sian sleigh swiftly over the 6now. Nothing
about the sleek beasts or the vehicle with
its black plumes and plenteous fur was so
curious as the driver. He sat bolt-upright,
but without the stiffness of the imitation
English coachman now prevalent in this
city. He was of medium height, and his
seat was somewhat elevated above that of the
girl who sat besides him. He was slender,
slightly undulous, and neat in his shapeli
ness. He was enveloped down to ihe point
where the lap-robe hid his costume, in a coat
of sealskin, and over his head was a top
pointed hood of the same fur. He was a
figure right out of a frigid zone picture. At
this point in my observation as the equipage
drew past me, I made a discovery which
renders it necessary to stop writing of the
driver as he, for the faee which became
visible under the hood was that of youug

Why She Was So Brave.
A stout, able-bodied lady was aroused the
other night by a noise in the hallway, and on
going down stairs 6be discovered a man fum
bling around in the dark, The lady immedi
ately assailed him with the ferocity of a
tit. ess and ejected him from the house in
quite a number of seconds less than no time
at all, and slammed the door after him. As
the man tumbled down the steps on the side
walk he was gobbled by a policeman and
promptly marched off to the cooler. The
next morning several of her friends called
and congratulated her upon the heroism dis
played in throwing a full grown burglar out
of the house. "Gracious!" exclaimed tbe
lady, growing pale and agitated: was that a
burglar?" "why certainly; didn't you know
it?" "Know it! Heavens, no! I thought
it was only my husband home again late
from the lodge, or I wouldn't have done
what I did for the world."

Senator Hoar called up the bill introduced
by him, and reported favorably from the
committee on judiciary, fixing the salary of
the United States district judges at $5,000.
A long debate followed.
Senator Saulsbury did not see why district
judges should have their salaries increased,
while others were working hard and expect
ing no increase of salary.
Senator Ingalls remarked, the senators
wen* getting -S5.000 a year now, and the
proposition was to make the salaries of the
judges the same.
Senator Williams regretted the universal
tendency to increase salaries. If the judges
were not satisfied thev could resign.
Senator Hoar inquired whether Senator
Williams thought the senators would resign
if their salary were cut down to $4,000 a
Senator Williams replied, no.
Senator Hoar asked why then did not the
senator move to reduce the salary of the sena
Senator Williams did not think he was
called upon to answer that questions'
Senator Bayard favored the bill.
Senator Pugh could not satisfy himself it
was right to make so much difference be
tween the United States judges in the south,
aud the state judges there, and the people all
thought they were paying all that, in their
present condition, they could afford to pay.
Senator Harrison did not think that a good

Senator Sherman then said, while he would
not discuss the bill, he would call attention
to some of its provisions: Of $15,000,000
appropriated, over $11,000,000 would go to
the southeru states, and out of the control of
the national government. It was to be for
education, but what sort of education? What
kind of ideas to be promulgated** Who should
have control of the matter tl Illiteracy was a
great evil unquestionably, but no measure
could be more unjust than to give to the
south such an enormous amount of money,
collected, for the most part, from the tax
payers in the northern states. He would not
be willing to vote any large amount into the
hands of those who he feared would not act
justly in the education of the
people, for whom the money
was intended. He was not
willing to vote to the southern 6tates money
from the public treasury for any purpose,
until we had better evidence that the money
so given woold be expended for the advan
tage of the United States. He was not will
ing to give such money, until the southern
people were willing to acknowledge the
rights conferred by the constitution upon the
citizens of the United States. He was not
one of those who would too narrowly limit
the function of the general government, but
there was a serious question involved here.
The people of the north, he thought, would
strongly oppose this disposition of their
Senator Ingalls said the vast sums of
money which the bill would appropriate was,
he thought, very insecurely protected by the
Senator Saulsbury opposed the bill. He
declared himself a strict constructionist, and
did not see in the constitution any authority
for this appropriation.
Senator Logan enquired, whether the bill
excluded from its benefits such states as did
not have a compulsory school law, or dis
criminated in its educational provisions
against any special elass of citizens. He
understood, for instance, that Kentucky
only distributed to colored schools such taxes
as were collected from colored citizens.
Senator Blair said he believed the present
legislation of Kentucky had repealed the law
making that discrimination. As to the com
pulsory law he thought that had better not be
made a condition of precedent to grant
ing the money to a state.
Senator Ingalls moved to amend by speci
fying the sehool age to be from 5 to 15
Senator Blair remarked, if the senator
had ever been in a colored school, he would
see how seriously such a provision would
take from the vote of the bill.
Senator Pugh said, the provision would
materially affect the educational interests of
the colored people.
Senator Logan, though favoring the com
prhensive educational measure, thought it
unfair to appropriate money on the basis of
illiteracy, because a large number would be
unable, in any event, to take advantage of
the aid offered by the bill.
Senator Miller, Calafornia, inquired, why
it should not apply to all children of school
age white or black, illiterate or otherwise.
Senator Logan said, the bill as introduced
by himself, was based on the whole number
of children in the United States. By the
bill before the senate, the colored men and
women in the south over forty years of age
would be made the basis for the call of the
money, while receiving nothing from it. It
was an instance parallel with that by which
the colored people were made the basis of
representation in congress, but did not have

ing the objections raised to the bill, when
Harris inquired whether he would give way
for a motion to adjourn.
Senator Blair replied he would do so on
one condition, that before the opening of the
debate to-morrow the senators would read
his speech of yesterday, as he thought it cov
ered all the points of objection raised to the
bill. Senator Blair's speech having occupied
several hours in delivery, this suggestion was
greeted with a hearty laugh, in which Blair
himself joined. A few amendments of de
tail were made in the bill, and the senate ad
TJie House of Representatives,
Washington, March 19.—Mr. Curtin,
chairman of the committee on foreign affairs,
submitted as a privilege question, the follow
ing report and resolutions: The resolutions
adopted by this house on the 9th January
were intended to express to the German
government and people, sympathy for the
death of an eminent man, who died in this
country, who had served his native land as a
member of its highest legislative body, and
as a tribute of respect to his memory. While
your committee is of opinion that said reso
lution should have been received and trans
mitted in the same spirit of cordiality and
good will by which it was prompted, refrains
from expressing an opinion as to whether
the course pursued by authority of the Ger
man Empire in regard to them
was or was not in accordance with the pro
prieties governing the internal regulations of
said empire as a matter not within its prov-
ince of consideration. The dignified posi
tion assumed by the department of state
merits, and will command the confidence of
the country, fully sustaining the high char
acter that department has maintained since
the organization of the federal government.
As to the resolutions offered on the 10th of
March, your committee are of the opinion
that they contain language, under the pres
ent circumstances, superfluous and irrcle
vant,and not necessary or proper to vindicate
the character or dignity of this house. Your
committee, therefore, report back said reso
lutions with recommendations that they lie
upon the table, and report the following res
olutions, with the recommendation that they
be adopted as a substitute therefor:
Resolved, That the resolutions referring to
the death of Dr. Edward Lasker, adopted by
this house on January 9, last, were intended
as a tribute of respect to the memory of an
eminent foreign statesman, who had died
within the United States, an expression of
sympathy with the German people for whom
he had been an honorable representative.
Resobed, That this house, having no oilicial
concern with the relations between the legis
lative and executive branches of the German
government, does not deem it requisite to
its dignity to criticise the manner of the re
ception of the resolutions, or the circum
stances which prevented their reaching their
destination after they had been communi
cated through the proper channels to the
Mr. Curtin immediately demanded the
Mr. Began hoped the previous question
would not be ordered. The house had made
apologies enough for having been insulted.
Mr. Cox, of New York, moved to lay the
whole matter on the table. That was the
way to treat the German chancellor. The
motion was lost by 83 to 85.
The previous question having been
ordered Mr. Ochiltree rose to debate the
resolution. He yielded to no gentleman in
his esteem for and confidence
in the distinguished members
of foreign affairs committee.
Ordinarily he was disposed to rely on their
judgment, but this affair had gone beyond
the domain of red tape and circumlocution.
It bad assumed a phase which called on
each and every repivsesciitativc to look to it
that his individual honor aud dignity were
preserved and defend the diimity of the
people. It was not becoming to the dignity
of this body to enter iuto explanations as to
the meaning of the original resolutions.
Tiny spoke for themselves and the apologet
ic tone of the pending resolutions was un
worthy the representatives of this great na
tion. Ochiltree then delivered a eulogy ou
the high abilities and noble character of Las
ker and said this compliment to Lasker was
a rebuke to the German chancellor,
because they were the antithesis of each
other. The present incident itself showed of
what base metal the latter was moulded. He
had ever been a flatterer and sycophant to
royally, who had never upheld the rights of
the people, and never lost an opportunity to
announce the peculiar sovereignity. The
proudest boast of this man of blood and iron
was, he had served the royal family of Prussia
a half century. Well might this proud and
haughty instrument of despotism seek to
shut out American principles from the hearts
of the German people. The principles of
absolute imperialism could not withstand the
moral power of American freedom.
Mr. Ochiltree then, amid some laughter,
read au extract from a letter, in which he re
fers to Ochiltree as having introduced him to
the president, the members of the cabinet
ond the foreign ministers.
Mr. Belford ironically inquired, whether it
would be in order for a member to offer a
resolution presenting the apologies of the
house to the German chancellor for having
The speaker replied it would not.
Mr. Phelps said that this matter, at first of
very little consequence, had become of great
consequence, as the coinmitiee had unani
mously agreed upon a report, it would seem
there ought to be an explanation. When, on
the 9th of January the members were closing
iheir desks preparatory to an adjournment,
the gentleman from Texas, Ochiltree, sent to
the clerk's desk a series of resolutions, and
asked unanimous consent for their adoption.
After waiting until the resolutions were read
a unanimous consent was given and the
bouse adjourned. After ten days the house
was startled by the information that the
chancellor had refused to accept them, and
the mourning members hunted the Record
to see what they had done. They read that
they had expressed regret at the death of
Lasicer, and sympathy with the German people
at his loss. This was true. They read,
also, that they had expressed the belief
that the free and liberal sentiments of
the deceased had advanced the material and
social intetests his country. This was true,
but between the two truths there was this
difference. One was the truth which the
house could report, the other was truth it
could not export. The house could say it
regretted the death of Lasker, and send the
message anywhere. It could believe and
know that his political sentiments were for
the interest of the German empire, but it
had no right to send that opinion to a
friendly power which entertained a different
opinion, and though the political sentiments
of Lasker had not materially advanced,
but had) materially, retarded
the progress of the government.
Here was a dilemma, and where was the
refuge? There seemed to be none. The
house could resent the fact that its friendly
sentiments and been rejected, but it could
not resent the fact that its political senti
ments had been rejected, because it had no
business put them on the 6ame paper. The
gentleman from New York, Hiscock,
had expressed the sentiments born in the
hearts cf every member of this body, that
unexplained, it was an insulting act of the
German chancelor. In the resolution offer
ed by that gentleman, the house was offered
some satisfaction in censuring this servant
of the German Empire and people, who had
proved so bad a postman. But the house
concluded it ought to wait a while, and the
gentleman from New York was willing it
should, and parenthetically for the benefit of
the newspapers, he wished to say that this
house, so much maligned, was everything
slow when it meant business, even though
it might be everything rapid and rash when
it meant buncombe.
Mr. Curtain briefly renewed and defended
the features of the report and the resolutions
were adopted with a division, although an
unsuccessful effort was made to have the
yeas and nays ordered.
Mr. Custer submitted the following further
report, relative to the memorial of the liberal
union German parliament. Tbe resolution
contained in this memorial, expresses so just
an appreciation of tbe action of this house
and so cordial a wish for the prosperity of
our country and the two nations, it deemed
it proper to make a fitting acknowledge
ment. The committee therefore recom
mends the adoption of the following resolu
Resolved, That the house cordially recipro
cates the wishes of the liberal union mem
bers of the German parliament for a closer
union of the two nations, and recognizes
their graceful appreciation of its sympathy
with those who mourn the death of Edward
Resolved, That tbis house accepts these
resolutions, and directs that they be spread
on the Journal.
Mr. Guenther declared his belief, that the
citizens of the United States, whether native
born or naturalized, were not in favor of
submitting to affronts on the national,dig
nity, not even by the most powerful of na
tions, without resenting them in the most
decided manner. He was opposed to tbe
apologetic tone of the resolutions adopted,
though he was heartily in favor of those now
Mr. Cox, of New York, thonght the house
was now trying to show itself thankful to one
portion of the Reichstag, how big the portion
he did not know. It was trying to get down
before the small number, after having been
thoroughly insulted by the blood and iron
minister who ran the big part of the Reich
stag. It was thanking the people of this par
ticular organization for thanking it aud was
complicating the matter in such a way as to
lose all dignity, all pluck, all Americanism
that belonged to this congress.
Here was this house discussing how it
might best put it3 mouth in the dust below
this blood and iron chancellor. Lasker was
a type of a great class of men. He was the
friend of labor in the largest sense of the
term. He, Cox, had favored the resolution
of his colleague, Hiscock. It was dignified,
honorable and consistent, and
was referred to the committee
on foreign affairs for consideration.
The people of Germany were in accord with
the people of this country, and but for the
great standing army there would have been,
and perhaps at some future day, would be,
an uprising of the Teutonic element, and
liberty would be resplendent in Germany as
it was here. He hoped the house would take
no step backward. For one, he would not
lower one stripe of the flag, or blot out one
Mr. Brumm said the house was trying to
carry water on both shoulders. Talk about
dignity. In his judgment to be honorable,
heroic and brave, and not play the part of a
coward, merely because the chancellor might
say the rules of etiquette were not strictly
Mr. Deuster regreled the hasty action of
the German Chancellor. He new that to
place before the Reechstag the resolutions of
the American house of ' representatives did
not in any wise imply his endorsement of
the sentiments therein. His assumption of
the role of master was unfortunate only for
himself. The parliament and peopie of
Germany are in possession of the letter and
spirit of the resolution, in spite of the action
of the Chancellor. Deuster commenced the
action of the department of state. He said
Lasker had expressed himself as holding the
highest regard for Bismarck, and differed
from him only on the tariff question.
Mr. Phelps took the floor to close the de
bate. The two problems presented to this
committee had been how to bring about an
apoloiry from the Chancellor, and how to es
eapc the necessity of receiving back the res
olutions. Both of these had been solved.
The Chancellor of the German
Empire had instructed his min
ister to express cordial regard for
his people and his grateful willingness to
transmit the resolutions, so far as they re
ferred to personal sympathy, if he had not
been prevented by the expression of political
opinion. This apology solved one of the
problems. The second was, how to escape
the necessity of receiving back the resolution
which had been sent. Here came to the res
cue the skillful engine of the department of
state. The resolutions were as courteously re
rejected as if they had been sent by secretary
of state. This let the committee out of the
dilemma, and its task became simple.
Could anything be more honorable, satisfac
tory and dignified than the resolutions re
ported? While the formal authorities of the
two countries were building a path by which
tbe house could walk out of the slough of
despond, the liberal members of
the German parliament expressed
their appreciation at the kindness
and their hearty good wishes for '.his eountry.
Pending the resolutions there were a recipro
cation of those good wishes. Thanks to Bis
marck, thanks to Frelinghuysen and his
skill, thanks to the committee on foreign af
fairs, thc.diirnity ofthe house was saved. The
German chancellor, for the first time in
eighteen months, had entered the rsfhstag,
in order to play the new role of a complais
ant, apologetic gentleman. The gentleman
from Texas has seen the dimensions of his
fame grow from the confiues of his state to
the circumference of the world. The Amer
ican minister has been invited to a state din
ner, possibly to eat American pork, and the
only thing that could give the house any mo
ment of sorrow, was that the fury of the
knight from Colorado has been so shackled
that he could not tell the house that the
white doye of peace which
it sent out had returned with
the olive-branch. Had not the members the
right, in mutual felicitation, to ring down
the curtin in this " international episode."
[Applause.] The resolutions were adopted
without a division.

elections, reported a resolution iu the con
tested election case, Garrison vs. Mayo, Vir

The matter was postponed until to-morrow.

Then the long expected struggle over the
whisky bill began, Mr. Blackburn calling Mr.
Springer to the chair and moved to go into
committee of the whole on the revenue bill.
Mr. Dowd raised the question of consider
ation, and Mr. Randall demanded the yeas
and nays, and the motion was agreed to,
yeas 130, nays 121, and the house went into
committee of the whole, with Dorsheimer in
the chair. The first bill was the bonded ex
Mr. Hiscock objected to the consideration.
The objection was reported to the house,
which by a vote of 137 to 118, decided to
consider the bill and committee resumed its
session, Mr. Morrison taking the floor in sup
port of the bill. Before he finished a
sentence, however, Mr. White,
of Kentucky, rose, saying he
had moved the committe to rise
for the purpose of bringing privileged matter
before the house. The chair stated he recog
nized the gentleman from Illinois, Morrison,
and on White taking appeal, refused to notice
it on the ground that an appeal was not in
order upon the question of a mere recog
nition by the chair. Thereupon White rose
to a point of order and said a members of
the whisky ring was now on the floor, where
he had previously given his pledge that he
had no interest in any bill before the house.
Within a few days from making that pledge,
he had appeared before the committee on
ways and means in support of the bill, and
was now on the floor as well as an editor of the
Courier Journal, from the town where more
whisky was in bond than in any other town
in the United States.
Mr. Blackburn submitted that this was not
a point of order, and said his colleague
knew he had no right to be heard upon it.
The chair ruled it was not a point of or
White—"I say I am entitled to be heard on
the question of privilege. The gentleman
from New York (Dorsheimer), has decided I
am not in order, and he must take tha re
sponsibility. You may bulldoze this bill
through, but . The remainder of the
sen fence was drowned in cries of "order!"
Mr. Morrison then made a short statement
as to the purpose and object of the bill. If
this business of converting grain into alco
hol is here only to be taxed, then the benefi
ciaries of this bill were entitled to no con
sideration here. Regarding it as a
legitimate branch of manufacturing indus
try, it was entitled to be placed on an
equal basis with all other industries. From
this industry the government derived more
than one-fifth of all its revenue. In the next
few months there would be forced out of the
warehouses twenty-five million gallons which
must pay a tax, and in the next few years
seventy million gallons, for much of which
there will be no market. The commissioner
of internal revenue estimated the surplus
for which there would be no market found in
the next two years to be forty-five million
gallons. In years when this whisky was made
everything was overdone. Excessive pro
duction was not alone in this industry, but
was common to all the larger producing in
terests of the country. The producers were
not able to compete in the sale of alcohol in
the European markets with Germany. This
country fought the German people with a
protective tariff, and had to sell in the
French markets in competition
with the subjects of the ill-natured
Bismarck. Suppose this surplus was purely
the result of a speculative spirit of our people,
was that a good and satisfactory reason why
an industry of this magnitude should be
forced to pay taxes when tthe government
had nothing to make by this enforcement.
It was said this was class legislation, that it
was in the interest of a special few, but that
was not the fact. This legislation was to un
do, as far as it went, the special legislation
against this industry, and put it, as nearly
as it might be, on an equality with all other
articles that pay internal revenue taxes. He
believed, with the commissioner of internal
Iie, if this was anything else than whisky
vould be no question about it. He
Bd further, that whenever it could be
as it could be done now, that the re
ould be granted. If this bill were pass
ed, it would not cost the government one
single cent. It would not add to the burdens
of a single person to the extent of a hun
dredth part of a fathing.
Mr. Willis said, the people of Hlinois,Ken
tucky, and half a dozen other states, were
deeply, and vitally interested ,in the immedi
ate passage of this bill, but its friends did
not wish to push it through by any railroad
scheme. If there was any thing wrong in it,
they wanted it to come out. He there
fore yielded to Blackburn, who, with the ex-
pressed hope that the consideration of the
bill will be concluded to-morrow, moved the
committee to rise. The motion was agreed
to and the house adjourned.
