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.

Drake raised the point that nothing was in or.

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

THI Nw OLtsas POLICE AND THE TuIrsvs.. tic
The city was regaled yesterday,- by one or two day
of the papers, with an account of a marvelous the
discovery of In untold amount of gold bullion, by nmt
the police, in the hands of two Spaniards, who an
were suspected of having robbed a conducta or a ma
bank in Mexico, and escaped with wealth almost fon
as great as that of the fabulous Monte Cristo. hy
Any sensible man would have been ncoredulous at I
of the story that was told, in connection with the em
discovery, but a reward of one hundred and fifty me
thousand dollars, which, it wasrumored, had been ye.
offered for the recovery of the treasmure filled the
oranmms of our Fouches so entirely that there lat
was room for no other thought, and those of the tha
press who are always seeking for the sensational me
were of course takten in, and through them the be.
people were entertained with an extravagant to
eulguinm of the skill and sagacity of the police- me
men who had found the mare's nest. foa
It turns out that the tpaniards, who must be
half witted if what ii now told be true, instea tn
of having great ingots of gold, had bars of some ten
compound made up of base metals, which they by
had been tng to sell here as gold! 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

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,

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

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
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
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
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
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.)

Tun Oraa.-Last night' performance at the
opera was a decided triumph for M'lle. 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

actor is too well known by our theater-going

as Orsind, a role which shoews her to great ad
vantage. The beneficiary plays in the comedy.
The house will be full.
