Forty three persons wcrelcjured. It Is feared that many were crushed to death in tbo galleries. The firs began during tbo first act of "Mlgnon " One of the wings caught lire from a gas Jet, and tho entire stago was Immediately en veloped In flames. A large part of the sudleneo got out easily, but the ess was turned off before all bad left tbe building, and It Is feared th.it some were left In tho upper Hers. The root soon fell In, sending showers ot sparks as far as the I'laco de la Bourse. With tho exception of Madime Stiller, who perished In tbe flames, all the actors escaped. Supers atd members ot tho chorus were terrltled. Some of Ibo latter fled with nothing on but tights. Tbo flames spread with such rapidity that In fifteen minutes tho stage was a vatt furnace.

'Ibe youngsters com posing the band bave, In fact, become one of tbo principal attractions of tho National Drill, tho ladles particularly showing them marked attention. TDC LOUSIANA RIFLES. But a regular ovation was given the Louisiana Rifles, who were tho second com pany of Infantry to compete. Tbeir march ing and countermarching by platoons In fact, all tbelr movements were mado with such precision and accuracy, yet seemingly wttLout effort. It appeared as though each man was cut a purt oi mo wnoio. me audience testified tbelr appreciation of It hi InDg continued spplauso But tbo point In wbleh tbey certaluly excelled all others so far wss tbe unfixing and fixing of bajoncU This Is regarded as one ot tbo most dlfil cult of movements in all tbo mauual, and alt tbo companies who have preceded tbem, scarcely without exception, wero quite ragged on this point, Tbelr firing lying down was cleverly done, aud, In Ioadiog,lbo "click click" of tbo gun locks was but one sound. In IcaWog tbey were given vigor uus applause. TUE SAKSriELD GUARDS. The next company to appear, according to tbe programme, was tbo Monmouth Guards (Company H, Sixth Illinois), but they were uuablo to appear, owing to the Illness of tbeir lieutenant. Tbo Sarsfleld Guards (Company C, Second Connecticut), then fore, took their place In all the manual they did excellently, but In tbelr evolutions tbey w ere quite uneven, owing, possibly, to tbo fuel tbut tbero was not t ufilclent room lu tLclr State to practice. coiirAW c, nitsT new jehset, Cottpary C, First New Jersey, were the next contestants and did fairly will, some of the movements by company fron, for Instance befog very uueven and ragged In tbe double quick movements, too, they gate evidence ot uncertainty. The grand btacd, while generous with tbelr applaue, proud quite hard to please and refused to applaud, except when they felt It to be well desencd, lu tbo beat double quick movement three of tbifr men Kent on for sever nt feet when the order was given to "rigm nuuut lace, murcn." CO, , WASHINGTON LIGHT tSFANTIlt, Iwelve o'clock sounded, tbe gates at the south end ot tbe grounds wero Aung open and tbo wblte coats and black bearskins of Company B, Washington Light Infantry, were seen. Tbe first sight of tbem started the applause, till swelling, Itamountcdto a regular ovation, tbo shouts and whistling ot tbo small boys adding to the din. Cap tain Ross marched alongside ot bis crack con pany, and certainly they wero as line a looking lot of men as havo jot appeared on tbo grounds. Tbey went through at least a dozen evolutions without an error, one, nowevcr, neing maae in warning, in tno double quick they mado tbe same break that every company so far has mado, tbat of losing step. They fixed bayonets well, better than auy company yet. No. A made a bad break In carrying arms, shouldering arms Instead. In firing their movements were as near perfect as possible. In tho full company right wheel tbey wero ono un broken, even Mac, and tho spectators burst forth with a perfect storm ot applause Their marching lu platoons was een, and made one ot the prettiest ptcturea ot drill week. There certainly was but one opinion e u the grand stands, and that was tbat Can tain Boss' crack company was tbo bent In all movements of any company tbat has jot competed. Better Judgmeut was shown in firing than to aim directly at tbo grand status. la kneeling tbey took atm and, wltLoutr break, fired In one sound ou the coed ship "Cumberland," whoso sails flaj ped wildly from tbo concussion. Cupula Ross carried his men all over the grounds, as though not at all afraid to show tbem off. 'ibeylefttbo grounds amid tbe loud cheering and buzzara of the crowd. TUG TOLEDO CADETS. Next seen were thelolcdo Cadets Jo tbelr wblto duck trousers, blue Jackets and white helmets. Their handsome and even march lug brought a good deal of applause. But a great surprise to cury one was in store for all, Whllo our own W'ashlngtoi bo j s chilled well so well, In fact, tbat all Ibelr admirers (and tbelr name Is legion) felt sure they would at least get a place,lt not tbo first prize all chances of tbo first prize coming to H ashing ton wero dispelled when tbe cadets bad been seen. Tho drilling of tbe crack company ot the Washington Light Infantry was a treat, but the drilling ot tbo Toledo Cadets was a marvel. Nothing bas been seen on the drill grounds yet tbat comes an) where near It, And tho applause while generous for tbo Washlugtou boys was such a continuous ovatlou for the Toledo laddies that tbe Judges were com pelled to waive their haudafor silence, so tbot tho curtain's orders could bo beard. 'ibelr ruoumcuts wero a model ot se em acy, and were tbo prettiest thing seen jei, as oue uiti veiurou ouiu, -i wwitu tbe Washington boys to win, but I must gle In to these boj s, by all means, It I want to bo fair minded," Ono of the most dlfllcult movements, or tbe one upon which every company has failed to a certaiu degree. Is lu I) inn down and getting up, Ibo Toledo bojs did this with as much evenness as they would carry arms, snd with as much grace The pop ular verdict was tbat tbe Tolrdo boys would capture tbe first prize of $3,000. Ibo Washington Cadeta were tbe next competitors, and did very well, Indeed. Tbo M relators, too, were quite f rro la bestow log tbelr spplauso upou our colored soldier boys. Their drilling was tho best ot any colored troop yet seen. INDIVIDUAL COMPETITION, Ibo infantry drilling ot tho day being finished, tho Individual competition began with two men from each Infantry company. They wero drawn up in lino as a single company, and wero given orders with great rapid It), It was a most seuro test, and kept each man on his mettle all tho tlmo. As errors were mado those making them dropped out, until tbo last man was left. Altogether It Was about tho most Interest ing thing yet given. TUC MEMPHIS ZOl'AVES. Following this come the Merchants Zou aves of Memphis, Tenn, They went through tbo beautiful movements of the zouaves peculiar drill with grace and ac curacy, Ibey made all sorts of figures, crosses and diamonds, and all nd 1 shape things Imaginable.

Tho camp was therefore bereft of visitors, who, for the pest three days, bave been regular atten 1 ails. Many of the soldiers were engaged In pi h j In g baseball, and the bat had evi dently superseded tbo gun, being wielded with equal dexterity. Tbe bleaching rays of tbe ma poured down on tho impedi menta wet by yesterday's storm, tbo bojs hating turned their tents Inside out during tLo phosant weather.
