WAenYI;TON, May 16.-The court met this morn tng, and, on motion of Senator Williams, it was decided, by a vote of 94 to 19, to vote on the eleventh article first. Messrs. Ross and Willey voting with those in favor of acquittal. Wade voted in the affirmative. This vote is considered conclusive of acquittal,as it slows only a strength of 34 for conviction. The vote on the eleventh article stood 35 to 19. Rosa, one of the doubtful senators, voted nay, saving the day for the president. After Chase declared the president acquitted on the eleventh article, which was ordered to be read first, a motion to adjourn until the 25th lnst., was declared out of order. An appeal was sustained, when Henderson moved to adjourn to July. This vote pending an adjournment to Tuesday, 26th, is probable. Late r-The court adjourned to Tuesday, 26th. Wade voted throughout the day. THIRD DISPATCH. TIIT: ADMISSION BILLS. Incidents of the Vete eon the Eleventh Article. THE HOUSE STILL AFTER THE PRESIDENT, EXCITk ME4 T IN WASHINGTON.

The omnibus admission bltl from the Hoou was referred to the Judiciary committee. Ceout opened at 12. All the senators were present. The Republican senators voting against calling the eleventh article first, were Messrs. Fessen den, Fowler, Henderson, Ross, Trumbull, Van I Winkle and Willey. On this question Wade voted for the first time during the trial. Chase, after admonishing the people to quiet ness, ordered the clerk to read the Ilth artiole, after which the questions were propounded in terms as agreed upon. Those voting " not goilty" were Messrs. Bayard, Buckalew, Davis, Dixon, Doolittle, Fessender Fowler, Grimes, Henderson, Hendrloks, Johnson, McCreery, Norton, Patterson of Tenn., Bom, c Saulabury, Trumbull, Van Winkle and Vickers-19. t Williams moved for a recess of fifteen minutes, which was negatived. He then moved adjourn- I ment to the 26th. I Johnson suggested the announcement of the I vote. Chase said he,would not announce the vote until taken on all the articles unaless the Senate ordered otherwise. Drake raised the point that nothing was in or. der pendinga motion to adjourn. Henderson said the motion 19 adjoua., was not in order while the roll was pending. Chase sustained the last point and directed the secretary to read the roll, which being read, the chief justice stated that there were thirty-five votes for guilty and nineteen for not guilty, and that the president was therefore acquitted on the 11th article. Chase then stated that the Senate was now in process of carrying out the order to proceed to vote upon the articles of impeachment, and that no motion was now in order while that was pend ing. Conness appealed, and the appeal was sue tined by 30 to 24. Then by a vote of 32 to 21 the Senate adjourned to the 2Gth. Wade resumed the chair, and after a long de hate the joint resolution to adjourn to the 25th was negatived and the Benate adjourned as usual. Elouse.-The House refused to entertain a reo lution appointing an Inquiry committee on the conduct of the Missouri delegation by 29 to 12. Private bills were resumed. A resolaution, that for the future and more'effi cient prosecution of the impeachment of the president the managers be directed and in structed to summon and examine witnesses under oath, and to send tor persons and papers, to em. ploy a stenographer and to appoint sub-com mnttees to take teetimony, Lthe expenses thereof to be paid from the contingent fund of the Hlouse, was adopted. Adjourned to Monday. Internal revenue receipts for the week $2,-9, 000. t'or the year $;6,.000,00. The excitement has been too great for wild de monetration, but the excitement Is intense. Th' president was surrounded by his cabinet offi cers when the vote was announced by telegraph. The congratulations were hearty, but quiet, and on the announcement of the postponement of forther action to the 2t;th, the party at the White House dispersed. An annuenally large crowd gathered at the White House grounds to hear the band which plays there cvery t uturdsy. The president occupied his usual position on such occasions. There was no demonstration. The RIepublican senators who voted for aclquit tal I are been subjected to no annoyance. Much money changed hands on the Ilth article. and an immense auount remains In the hands of rtakeholders on the final result. FROM LOUISVILLE. GeOernor Browalw Drlng.

A carernl pensat of the report convinces sun us not only that the association is a prosperous ent and growing one, but also that its affairs are con- son ducted with a method and a fidelity to its interests ,w, which cannot be nspassed. Sinoe the orgsn'za- of tion of the society, receipt, from all source3 have T amounted to $148,750 64, and the disbursements so to $123,919 93, leaving a balance of $23,030 71, aw, of which $16,10C 47 is invested in stocks and ,wa bonds, the balance being in cash.

Even thti, statement cannot be vonched for considering the r quarter it comes from. But the affair is very naug- foc gestive as to the motives and conduct of those pu regarded by the public as the special guardians fri of life and property in this city. Now if it were true that these Spaniards had committed a rob- op tery in Mexico, great or small, no man could in j these United States lawfully lay hands upon them ai or their plunder, for there is no treaty of extra- . dition between this country and Mexico. They , had violated no law of this ttate;: no law of the an United Statee. and if it was intepded to carry them bo to Mexico, which is very doubtful, it could only have been done by kidnaplmng them. The zeal with which these suppoeltitiens robbers were tunted down, in view of one hundred and tri fifty thousand dollars reward, to say nothing of he the prosl ect of "sweating" the gold. is in re- thu markable centrest with the indifference or incapa city shown in ri gard to lepredatons upon our own peole. A good chief of police would not have i a noted thief In the city, in three months after Ca coming into ,flice, but nesriy every housekeeper an now sleeps wilth a loaded revolver under his pil- m low, not knowing what night he may be visited by on burglars; the Canal blank is robbed of $50,000 R and nobody knows who has done it; Mr. ILapeyre af has .$20,000 stolen froti him at the Postoflice and l4 our vgilant asd adroit police have never d:a- ag covered the thief. o A fact of which we have been placed in posses so Son, wlith authorlmy to wake it public, throws a fltod of light upon these derelictions. Over a of year ago cune Watson, a notorious burglar, made C his presence knt wn in the city by breaking into J. and robbing Lilienthal's jewelry establishment on th Canal street. He was arrested, but got out on th nominal ball and could never be found after, at in least so those who should have found him, said. s Thouenhe police seemed unable to get him, he tt proved tie presence in the city by planntng an pi entrance into the segar shop at the corner of Cs- at tombouse and Royal streets, breaking open the de safe and robbing It of some six thousand dollars. p It is known, also, that he has been connected t with other burglaries committed salnce he was re- a leased from prison. r New for something almost incredible in the a measure of its ashamelesanese: Beveral weeks ti since the chief o, police apprised Mr. Luasenberg, p the district a'torney, that he knew where this great burglat was; that he was in this Stats, and ml could be taken. Money, however, the chief a added,wna necessary, ad he asked Mr. ILzen- h berg to take steps to secure him the amount c need ed, to defray the expenses of the capture. a Mr. LTuaaber Infoured him that the law 0on ferred no authority of the kind upon him, but the sheriff could send officers to arrest the fugitive and the law aethorized the payment of whatever expense might be inonrred. Mr. Lasenberg ooe suited with Dr. Avery on the subject, and he agreed to send reliable deputies after Watson, if Information was given of hie bhtdng place. Mr. Losenberg saw the chief of police, and telling him what Dr. Avery would do, asked where Watson was! The chief refused to inform the district attormey, and added, in substance, that unless his own mem were sent after Watson nobody else should know where he was!! It is almost needless to add that the district attoerey was desirous of punishing the chief, bet no statute could be found covering each a case, `rave a the mindemeanor i, uad the city remains blessed ith a man at the head of its police, who knows where a dangerous enemy of society is lurkin , but keeps the secret for his own pur. poses. Twa MArmrln oW Trs Mvantra.-The antici pations of those who had been so fortunate as to obtain invitations to the metinee entertainmeat given at the Metaire Course yesterday, by the rtairie Jockey Club, ware more than realised. At two o'clock the members' gates were thrown open to guests, and thereafter, for s hour or two, a constant succession of vebielees, freighted with beauty and fashion, passed in to the ateio of the grounds, each in turn depositing its precious burden and then ranking way for Its successor. The keerasi ag isa aL[le gquL were as lower floor othe portion of the stand usually re. served for ladiesand members had been converted aintn Immesse dining hall, and wa traversa hb a log table temptingly adorned with W tlheA. purw.r ,rt he confectioners' and restaurateurs' art. The public stand on the other hand had been set apart for a dancing hall, and was taste fully decorated with palmetto leaves, which, ar ranged over each window anddoorway, relievel the bareness of the walls and gave a fresh, cheer. ful aspect to the scene. The first feature of the entertainment was the hurdle race for gentlemen riders, for which there were three competitors entered. It was half past three when the first tap of the bell called them to prepare for the contest. In a few mo ments all the prelimt aries were dispatched, and the three horses and riders were off, clearing the first hurdle handsomely. Eager bright eyes watched them as they went madly down the back stretch, sad there was a vigorous clapping of hands, an unmistakable outburst of enthusiasm, when Red Bird came in ahead, in 2:014, winning the race sad for his rider the honor of the day. There had been announced on the programme a buggy race, dash of two miles, but for this was substituted a mile dash to saddle, in which Red Bird and his foremost competitor in the previous race took part. The chances varied as the two spirited animals went around the course, but again Bed Bird came in .first, winning the dash in 1.53. Then came the lunch, which was partaken of with no unwilling appetites by the guests, who flocked about the daintily spread board, and divided their attention about equally between conversation and the collation. The crush at this point was perfectly tremendous. Anxious mat rons and blooming daughters glanced timidly around at the overpowering force of young and old beaux, who, bowing with plate or glass in hand, were determined to carry the day bystorm, if attention and gallantry could do it. But by and by the crowd gradually thinned out, especially when It was announced that Terpsichore was growing impatient for her votaries in the dancing iall beyond. Thither then flocked the fair ones and their escorts, the band struck up a redowa, and in a moment the scene was one whirl of beauty, which we Unger upon in memory and yet hesitate to describe. Break into fragments a hundred rare bouquets, set each sweet flower whirling in the air about you, diffusing fragrance, dazzling the eye with the contrast of brilliant colors, and you have a faint idea of the kaleido scopic scene which presented itself to the entranced beholder in the ball room of yesterday. But the music ceased for a while, and what a change; a mule race was annonaced. Four ob stinate, vicious quadrupeds, two saddled, two minus saddles, were prevailed upon to start in a mile dash, and went around the course to the in finite amusement of spectators. Then there was a race for double teams to baggies, the honors of which were carried off by a well known citizen and active member o the Metairie. By this time the sun had gone down into the west, and night came on apace. Dancing was re sumed, and to give seet to the oonolsion of the entertainment, a pyrotechnic display, including some designs peculiarly appropriate to the turf, was offered, and received with flattering evidences of approbation. The festivities were continued until a late hour ; so late, in fact, that when, mindtul of the duties awaiting us in town, we turned to go, the gaiety was at its height, and there were no indications of an immediate dispersion of that brilliant assem blage. CAR CA°TrALTI.--Oflcer MeDonell reports that a boy named Fred. Sewell, aged about ten years, fell under the wheels of a street car at the corner of Canal and Bourbon streets, on Friday night, and received serious injury. He was taken to his house, corner of Canal and Villere streets. "'ALL 19 NOT GOLD THAT GLITTERS."-About a year since a bank ,in the city of Mexico was robbed of gold nuggets to the value of $80,000, and since that time detectives In the various American cities, anticipatirg that some attempt might be made to exchange the rough metal for coin or currency, have been on the mqui rive for the perpetrators of the theft. On Fri day night an event occurred which resulted in the [arrest, at the Orleans Hotel, of a Spaniard named Romero, in whose possession were found a number of bars supposed to be gold. and esti. mated to be worth $150,000. These bars were found deposited in a trunk in the room occupied by Romero, and had been by him offered for sale at the Bank of America. They were taken to the office of the chief of police for keeping, and Ro mere, who was arraigned before Recorder Neville yesterday morning, was remanded to await further investigations. A chemical test was made at a late hour yesterday, resulting in the discovery that the supposed gold nuggets are only sozme metal of base alloy, which their possessors have been endeavoring, and in some cases successfully, to palm off upon purchasers for the genuise metal. E!ghty-two of these bare in all were found. A I.EcrPAaR CHANBGES Bis SPOT.--A leopard attached to the menagerie of Mr. Chs. Ames temporarily dissolved his attachment yesterday by escaping from his cage while in process of transportation from the shoe-tent, near the French Market, to his other canvasihome, at the foot of canal street. It appears that the horse pulling the dray whereon the cage rested took fright and flight, throwing of cage and animal against an awning poai, whereby the doors were opened, and the wdild beast stepped forth to en joy the liberty of Levee street. He went, with singular good judgment, immediately to a wine shop on Jefferson street, kept ,by Mr. A. Lanata, and psaing through the lower story, ran up stairs, and after destroyoing about fltty dollars worth of bottled liquor, enecinced himself in a cabtinet, (probably in search of nld cabinet brandy.) liere he was caught by bi8 aRpeaer*. wko hat p-ir sued him, amod being securd wlth a laso, was triumphantly reconductel to coninemeot, where he now doubtless drearms of the iyes land liquor)s, that he tasted.

Audibert who took her benefit in the role of eldcne in Oflenbach's finest operetta of "La Belle Helene," before as large an andleno as ever congregated at this reined and admirably managed place of musement. During the first act It was aparent that the star of the Opera House was suarin under a sudden attack of hogrenaes, but althoeg she did not afterwards entirely recover her voice, improvement was so great ad her acting so fine, remarkably fine, that she was encored sad called before the curtai durlng each of the other asets. That Mile Audi bert does not ossess faults, would be an easser tion which wo.'d pretend to place her In a dif forent cmss from the oomoms of mankind, and we will not do her that injustice. But Jut let her once more dog and act " La Belle Helene" aad we shall defy excellence even in the old world. The beneficiary was not only forteaste enough to have a crowded house, but she also re ceived several nicely ibboned packages which must have cota j valuable presents. To-night "Lucretia Borgiar will be sung sad "Brnlo le Fllear," a one act domedy, will be played for the benefit of Mr. Chamonin, the first comic of the opera company. This excellent actor is too well known by our theater-going prople to require any further notice of his bene it. In "Lecretia," Madme Audibert appears as Orsind, a role which shoews her to great ad vantage. The beneficiary plays in the comedy. The house will be full. ACADEMY or Mt!SIc.-Those who have not seen Cavanaugh's local drams, "The Bells of the OGr den Distrit, or New Orleas by Daylight," will have a fnal opporuonlty of doloig so this evening, for It will be rep laced to-morrow evenngol by a ew mythololoal burlesquo, entitled "The Nymphs of the Carlbbeno Sea," in which the whole company are to tLake part, with a powerful cast of charscters. Nymphs and naiad., amazons and demons, mortals and unmortsl,. all appear to be scattered over the programme in delightful profusion, while a perusal of the synopsis of scenery and incildents gives promie of a really interesting piece. Mime Eva Brent, whose per fuwmance last season proved her equally taleoltd as an actrees, or cantatri, e, Is to s5uumo the lead ing character of ab,inr,, que'n of the nymphs, and Miss Evers will appear as , p,'in, the amaro, captain.

To su h ltime. au thuese, when he eo.untr is hnImd with trouble, sorrow and privatios, it is the b'mnden duty of every community to aid and cherish tise who devote themselves to philantbropy atid good worts. In the hard and absorbing strugg'.s of life, many who iave bands "open u day to melt mg charity" find but few pp :luonitiec for isorthy bestowmenot.
