VARIrrie TtraTs--7The Parlor Opera Cont. j arty.-There was some improvement in the n-im I er of the audience at the Varieties Theater last Ir hit, to listen to the " Barber of Seville," sung by the Parlor Opera Company, but we must ad niat that we were disappointed at not find'nq a lull houpe. Mils McC(ulloch, the star of the com pany, certainly possesses all the requisites of a I rev,,rte clor.,,bse 1 ,o-,, combining cultivation, rlo thod, tiexibtlty of voice, beauty and at ton. Miss McCulloch's renditin of the the ile of Rosina cnfirmed us in our opinion that the can be rated as a first-class singer. Quite )oung as yet, she may not avail herself of all the iltts which nature has bestowed so lise tally upon her. but matnr ty will develop thr se rirources, aid we sincertely hope to hear her agaei next year, when she probably will visit our city ucder more propitious ciromastancps, arnd receive the well deserved appreciation and plau dits of a comrnunity whi-h never allows talent to paie unnoticed. Fignor Sueini was as comical as ,rual, and Figaro found an excellent interpreter i, the person o(f Signor Lo.atelli. We sincerely regret tl at circumstances will not permit Mr. Tor tiani, manager of the company, to extend his seaion, tut take pleasure in recommendinr his c, mpany to the public in whatever locality they dicide to perform hereafter. AcA nAYY or Miusic -"The last night of the K. K. K. The last night of the Female Priva teers." Those are the words that meet our eyes in a glance at the programme for this evening. -o, would you, good reader, see those mys'eries elp(ps, d. or smell the powder of a real navel en gagement, go to the Academy to night, or else fiever after ho'd Jour peace, for to-morrow evluing the real summer season commences, the ipri es of admiesior beuig reduced to one half the original tariff, and yet the attraeti-ns will con tieue the ssme. Misses Fngle, Hardy and Evers, Messrs. Cavanaugh, Parker. Schoolcraft, Carter, Norvirimo, an a host of others all remain, and will appear nightly. How the enterprising mmn egement thus circumvent matters we can hardly understand. At all events "its funny how they do it, but they do." FIRST CLASS PoIIooaiArIns-" Oh wed some power the giftie gie us to see onsel as ithirs see une," is a with often made by the most sapient. Not arogating to ourselves more wisdom than or dinarily falls to the lot of our kind, still we say, if you want to reach this consummation of your de sires as near as possible, go to our friend Mr. John H. Clark, photographer, 101 Canal street, and give him a setting, when you will see the very fan similie of the dear original. His work will show for itself, and his prices are moderate. Particular attention is called to the extensive sales by Chas. T. Nash, to-merrow : 1st.

SBrxercKsl CLOTHING.-To old residents it is useless to say that this style of goods is the most pleasant summer material one can wear. This fabric Is of India manufacture, and is bright, durable and exceedingly genteel. Indspendentof this pecuilar class of goods, Messrs. Garthwaite, Lewis & Stuart, 31 oand 33 Camp street, have on hand a large and varied stock of summer cloth. eing, furnishing goods, shirts, trunks, valises, car. petbags, etc., which they are selling at the low eat market price. Call and examine their stock before purchasing. The sales at auction to-morrow by the sheriff of the parish of Orleans, comprise real estate si ate itrothis parish, in the town of Belleville, right bank of the river MississIppi, and thirty shares of the capital stock of the Good Intent Towboat Company of Louisiana.

Naw REI.IOiuS MUVmsaNT.--The Free Reli. gious Assoc.ation, which was organized in Boscon last fall. held its first business and public meeting on the 29th nlt. The association is based on the idea of religious freedom, and seeks to solve the religious prob cm of the age on the ground of intellec ual liberty. Bome of the leading minds ol Boston and New England sympathize with the uijects of the assoeiation. All the stereotyped i~re of sectarlanism are discarded by it. and, hlile it attacks c-o sect or belief, it seeks to ivolve the great truths it would establish from nature. The president of the asseuocitien is Octd vius B. Frothingham. Among the vice presidents are such men as Robert Dale Owen and Thomas W. Bigginson. During the past year leading radicals of foreign cuontries have written lettero, arking qucetiomns about the association : and it is the purpose of the managers to secure a publica tion fund for the printing and distribution of bo kas, to establish a permanent series of lectures, and also a reverent and progressive newspaper in the city of Boston. All Apropos of the Battle of the Psalms now raging in Pittaborg, the Chicago Triboune says: [" Le nmoat curious illustrations might be given from Ftermhold & Ropkins, or Tate & Brady, of the en. tire want of taste, and the ludicrous adherence to the letter which marked the ancient Presbyterian worship. The versifiers who rendered the sacred words into Eoglish had small regard for measure, or for anything but a literal rendering of the in. spired sentiment. If the words happened to jingle, all right; if not, all right. An old psalm in a favorite Puritan collection has this stanza : ' J, shsuwaxru ed rat hd Sm his bsl besr, hgainse the Le be GOd.e ktltai, Ad p his bttols eang ' "Another ets forth the thought of the psalm 1st In the following bhoice doggerel: ' The ras is not ant I te ams That Sath taem Iasu rue, Ie the basel That bass the legoet gsn.'

The jury in the case of A. 8 McDonald vs. Bror ka, McDonald & Co., in the PFifth District Court, have contributed their feee-twelve dol lars.-to the family of Lieut. J. C. Braise, the on. fortunate elate prisoner. A sportive white servant maid, at 482 Apollo street, smused herself yesterday by throwing a raw potatoo about the sise of a full grown apple at a car driver. The potatoe missed its aim, but very nearly smashed a glass, near which a lady was sitting, at the upper end of the oar. We were in error in stating that the monitors Oneota and Catawba had undergone their recent repairs in the Valette Dry Dook. It was in the Marine Dock that the vessels were docked. Foar rockets exploded on the gallery of the Academy of Music on Friday evening, but without doing any serious lnjury. The charges against W. E. Finch, mail agent (n the Opeloneas route, came up for examination before Judge Durell on Friday, but, owing to the number of times that the case had been post poned by request of the prosecution, his honor concluded to continue the ease over to the fall term, releasing Mr. Finch upon his own recog nirsance, to appear when called upon. The lion. Ihomas Jefferson Durant, whose visit has been the subject of so many c,,mments, was witnessed yesterday on Bt.

'e are rcqvested to state that the Southern Base Ball Club wail play a~anniversary game to. dat", between the members of the club. The game will be an interesting one, aside from the tact that the "Routherns" have never beenu beaten a series of games. or a full game, and justly claim the local championship. The game sill take place at the Fair Grounds. Orne of those intolerable nuisances and thieves in disgu:ie, an itinerant cigar seller, was arrested on Caral street yesterday for peddling his wares without a license. These fellows are worse than t.e cahiren at the depots of the Jackson rd I'ont(ha'train RItllroads, a'd more perti. r acious than the evening newsboys. We hope tLe chap arrested will have a chance to pick oskam for six months. The city is bounteously s.pplied with fresh and lu. cious pineapples from ore of the West India I lanod, wh'ch are retailed at 25c. apiece. The clerk's office of the Fourth Dirtrict Court it assuredly the coolest and pleassantest locality in New Orleans. No matter how still and sultry it rr y he elsewhere, there iG always a stron. coil i.nd ceigl tilnl current of air running throuuh M .jor It chard Bond's headquarters in the Fourth lIisrict Court rooms. In the very important cse of McDonald vs. Brooks. bMcDonald & Co.. in the F:tth Ditriot ''ourt. on Friday, the jury anrid the judge sat from 9 a. x until nearly 12 e. x , with only a short internrse'ion for d.uner. The jury was a special one, ccmposed of twelve as intelligent ani well informed and reputable men as are to bh foujt in New O leans. The plaintilfl"'s claim was for $27i,. 100. Ihe jury accorded him $20 0+j0. Tue record in the case is exceedingly voluminous, and as there will doubtless be an appeal to the 4upreme C< ort. the transcript will be a fat as well as a veiy laborious job for the clerk. 11 The encroachments of the battore upon the channel of the Mississippi, in front of the Second aan the lower portion of the First Districts are monthly perceptible to the most careless eye. The wharves. the shipping, steamboats, barges. and other craft that line our city front, and act as barriers against the floods of muddy water, pro duce a weaker counter current or eddy mncile of them, in which that element has time to deposit tihe slime and sand which it bears whilst running. The attrition on the other bank must be corre ijondingly great, and as Algiers is situate on a ; int, It seems probable that, in the lapse of .eneratlons, that point must be swallowed up, and the fr nt of the Crescent City present a suaigh, line from one extreme to the other. TVie temperature yesterday, as shown by the thermometer at C. Duhamel's, corner Bienville and Chartres streets, was as follows: At 6 a. K. 79 degrees: 12 a. :; 3 P..

The old man who acts as gardener has studiously and with untiring labor fostered the growth of his trees in order that they might serve as a refuge to his feathered pets from the pitiless peltings of the little boys and girls who gambol every after. Lorn upon that pleasant res ,rt. It may be said if these urchins that they gambol on the square ; but no matter for that, we have seen a score of them pursuing a wren from shrub to shrub with iutense eagerness, until at last the little fellow reaches his abode in the leafy fastness, where he chirps in security wi h his mate and his brood, in. visible and indifferent to the outer world. Pat Melia and Pat Bray indulged in the inno cent summer recreation of lacerating each other's physiognonoies with breas knuckles, on Clara street, on Friday. Recorder Neville imposed a heavy fine ueon each in consequence. A cart driver was thrown to the pavement, corcer of Scraparn and Chippewa streets, yes ter~sy morning, by the falling of his horse, and was quite seriously injured. The Cruoaders and Lone Stars are to play the first of a series of games for the championship cn the Delachaise Grounds at 3 o'clock this after noon. 'Iwo hundred thousand dollars of the capital stock of tie Southwestern tailroad Company have been mubsrrbed foir. The road is to run uion the line of the old Mexican Gulf Railroad, but will be entirely relaid, with new tracks, de. tota and machine shopa. Its completion bids fair to open a new era for the people of St. Ber nard. " Och-shnre, an' he'll get it all back agen." suid a man looking at Kitredge's fiBre works ou St. t haoles street..the other evening. We hope he did get it ahll back. Amorg the distingunlshed visitors from our city to the scene of the late "mill" (which didn't cme t~all ) between Coburn and Mc:toole, is said to hare been the famous John Warson. Mr. Feward, late organist at Trinity, plays to day. and hereafter, at c:hrist Church, Canal street. The monitors Oneota and OCatawba, concerning which considerable d sussion has taken placo in Corgree of late, are both lying at Algiers, a short distance below the Opelousas ferry landiog. TiE fRFE.T .i Tnnm CITY.-A long time ago, but stili within the memory of midd eaged men, every street in New Orleans running from the river to the swamp had its gutters lull of gRrg Ilmng, living water from the Mississippi, whi-h was let in through sluikes cut into the levee. The snuply was regulated by means of a broad plank, tu.l of augur holes, having a slide attached. Tirough these holes shrimp and mianows, and n.t unfrequently god' siaed eels, made their way from are mighty father of waters into the artlti ciel streamlets whiblch sparkled and danced in the r-uI lihht throughp the heart and the faubourge of te Creecent City. It was then the custom for ramilies to have the dusty and sweltering street in front of their dwellings copiously watered, at ltsbt once a day; a practice which had a remark atlle etfct in coo'ing and refreshing the sultry atmosl-bhre of the dog days, and contributed wi nderfully to the cheerfoul and picturesque ap pearance of our streets. In the lower portion of tl.e Secord Il.irict, where the somber and mas sive style of it:e old SpanIsh architecture prevails, and the bni!dings are the most ancient in the city, cte ci u'd almost dream oneself in the quarter of the Abencerruges in Granad. with its noontide s:i Icess interrupted only by the gr.tl mranor of fi untains (say gotters) or the cry of a water carrier--for in those days the range of water pipes was very limited, and the carriers obtained tlhteir supplies from the river itself, retaling the water at ive cents a bucket. The greater portion of our poor people used to obtarn water, not only for ablution but for cook irg and drinking, from the gutters. They would wait until a late hour of the night, when vehoicles rod bmreloot urchina had ceased troubling the flowirg element, in order to fill their tubs and casks. It was then as pure and as wholesome as that in the parent stream, albeit, sometimes an old negro would soak his tired feet for a few minutes in it before retiring to bed. It is a fact which has been serted by more than one distin guished medical authority, that oancer and kindred diseases are rarer along the banks of the Mislatmppt and the Misouri rivers than in any o:her portion of this ooatloent The immunity is attributed to the quality of the water. The float ing detrituas in this water, spreading over the low extent of swamp lands in the rear of the city, acted, when it settled, to e leoeredible degree, in fertlltlg and ralsg the surfasee of thee lands. The inhabita-ts of the rear portion of New Or lena are now unnoonercioualy enjoyin the fruits of the wae poley which itadced the city fathers of ancient days to introduce old iississippi'seqneous currents into the arteries of the bidy corporate New Orleans possesses water advatages nn equaledelsewhere on the glob-. Except when the river is at its lowest stage, is.arunoe is above the level of our streets. An outlay of a scare of thousandecould renew the blessing which war and negleot have long left sassed had uaenjoyed. The individual, whether an alderman or assistant sidezmsn, or a wealthy private citisen, who could carry thrdogh the enterpriseof re-opening and in creasiag the number of smleoes at the font of our streels will ie far more deserving of popular gratitude and remembrance than such a visionary phi'anthropist as John McDonough, with all his trillions bequeathed in charity and chimerical projects for the advancement of his follow-citi ene and his own ammortality. Tnr Pe'BLIC iCHooLN.-There are now in this city thirty-six distrlet sad three high sehools for white and sixteen for colored children. The total number of teachers is 314.; of white pupils 17,163, colored 4477. This number of colored children is larger than that of pupils who were in attend. ance in the white schools in 1852, twelve years alter the public school organisation. The board of directors are seriously embarrassed by the refusal of the council to allow the addition al appropriation of $70,000 to be placed to the credit of the school fend. 3he board of directors and the superiatendent and his able assistant have labored with untiing zeal in their duties. In conm ensation, and In other particulars, no distinction is made by the board in the duties or |,ositions of the teachers employed in the white an.d coliced schools. The rule Is applicable to all teachers that they must possess the necessary moral and scholastic qualifications. It may be questioned if in any part of the country, North or i uth, thele exist schools for colored children, where the teachers employed are allowed higher cn penSation, or are better qualified than those in this city. Five of the teachers are colored ; one of thi in, Mr. P. M. Williams, principal of the Gravier street school for boys, is a g t of a New England college. His sohool is large and umportaut one, and is kept in good discipline and under careful instruction by himself and his a3. iliauit, who are all members of his family.

I'tsevoen DPiesrtwastc AT Kwtemwa. - We le rued last evening that a serious disturbance had occurred at Kennerville.Jeffsrson parish. The account was that a deputy sheriff had gone thither from Carrollton to arrest a negro, charged with as, e , t!Ie-se, but had in discharging that duty t., en tired upon by him. The officer returned the tire woud:ndmg his assailant, whereupon the ne gr. en are si:id to have rallied in large numbers, annd with weapos,. ad making such demon slrniasns that a courier was sent to Greenville to call Lor a detachment of soldiery to restore quiet. FRST tiar)s r CoRTv.--t will be remembered that in July ct last year a negro named Ammey Bruisgton, employed as hostler and general ser vent at the corner of Thirdand St. Charlesatreets, committed a horrible outrage upon the person of a 3 (ung girl. the daughter of white people, who was in the habit of peddling eggs. The ne gro was convicted by a try. in the First Iit rict Coout. and the penalty was death. ce contsel for the accused recently made a mot:on for a new trial, which was refused by Joa e Howe, the decision being as follows, on the points raisea L; coUnsel for acousr. "i t. On account of evidence alleged to have been newly discovered. 2d. On acconot of alleged irregular Ities lin the drawing, summoning and impaneling the Grand Jury that found the bill. And 3d, on account of alleged irregularities in the drawing, summoning and impaneling of the petit jury be lore whom the case was tried." Says the judge: "The first ground is not sustained; upon the trial of the rule, accused sought to show that there was newly discovered evidence: but utterly failed. I am constrained to believe that, in this regard, the affidavit of the rrisoner is untrue. Neither can tee point made as to the grand jury avail the prisoner. The in. diciment was found before the military registry of veters was completed-the grand jury was drawn from the, then, last list of registered vol era in thbia sparish, and the decision in the case of the State vs. Morgan does not apply. As to the petit jury, there were no challenges, either to the array or to the polls, for the cause now urged in support of a new trial. It is too late to raise suho questions after a verdict. "Motion for a new tnral rt :ued.' A appeal has been taken to the Supreme Court. In the meantime the negro remains in prison, witlhout benefit of ball.

The Maadea as Dlaer. The New York emM ensg: Without desiring to Jenkil se our review of the Sings and doilng of them Orientals daring the brief rof yeterday, it perhaps will not be considered untoward or impolite by eve those grave tntes Chit ad Ia. to preent them to the public as the appeared at the d table at five o'clock yesterday afternoon. A small and retired dising room in the West minster has bees placed at the disposal of the embassy. At the headof the room, sear the table, is the seat of honor, invariably occupied by the first meadarla or tqiei Chih, sad the lower end or " foot" of the table is reserved for his associate Stin. Between these on the right sad on the left in chairs, in a very ivdlined position, were seated their attachas ad writers and medieise man, whose importande, donbtilmss greatly eanoed in the eyes of his onuatrpues by the large pair of spectacles be wears on his n sed s l prox imity to his eyes. Chih had taken his seat, with Tung and Tek oa his right and left; and without teehhing was closely inquiring lato the hobracter of the viands the four huropean servitors attired in whlte waist costs were idstriosly piling on the t table. At this jeaoae Ba and others of the embassy entered and approached the table, whereupon his excellency tah arose,asalso did his attach.s, and together over the table, their heads resting on its edge, they made a meat protosd bow to the new cmers; and these, is retarn, responds with a gravity of meaner that would have won the heart of a Chesterflield, a D'Orsay or Bram mtll, had they bern alive and present. Our Chinese friends, it perha is well to re mark, eat very moah as people who boas a higher civilization. They certainly use their tooth, and when their food has been thoroughly masticated, swallow it without fear of indigestion or prospect ive dyspepsia. Chopsticks they (that is the Chi nese of the embassy) certainly use, but limitedly. R ith these together, between the them and first and second fingers of the right hand,they take up small pieces of pickles, and when rice was de sired, the bowl in which it was placed was raised to the chin, and, with the stitke, a few grains were taken at a time to the mouth. The chop iticks of the Chinaman are a subetitute for our fork. When with Chih or Bun it was desirable the di'ere could and did use knife and fork and spoon St ih as much grace and aptitude as people to the "manner born." And now, before closing our description of how a Clinaman eats, let us add that which may be pleasant in the ears of the ladies who linger over the cup at the evening meal. The Chinese, when they can get them, use both cream and sugar in their tea. We have read that the brother of the sun and grand uncle to the moos, in his cen tral flowery kingdom, disdaining milk and sugar invariably swallowed his Bohes In its natural state, and with, barring the water, its natural ilevor. that is an exploded idea. Tajin Obib, gieat man sun, and the possible mandarin Tang, Teh, l.ion, and the rest of them, take milk and sugar in their brew of the leaf when they can get tham, and so also does their sublime master, the aforesaid relative to the sun, moon and the starry hosts. The Chinese of the embassy sit straight at their meals, talk pleasantly to each other while swal lowing their rice or while their masticators are meking mince meat of chickens, etc., and use thtir napkins wl'h an air which clearly demon atrates to the lhoker on that at the table these are not unknown to the habitude of the sourt of Pekin. There is one little difference betwea our "out side barbarians" and the civilized people of the wolld. They pay so little attentio to fashines that they actually, in complianee with the laws of health, close their principal meal with soup instead of opening with it. Their physitoans are either too honest or their patients know too much of hygiene to be caught making dyspeptics of themselves by taking watery preparttoions into their stomachl preliminary to the antroduotion of solids. When the gentlemen of the Orient had satisfied "the inner man" they very deliberately rose to their feet. bowed gravely to esach other n3til their heads-all but one covered with skuoll caps-nearly touched, and then went their several ways. A Lady Whe Couldn't Get 0a Witheot Mattes Chop-. Fanny Fern tells the following in the last Ledger : Not long since a lady called upon me, who was very well dressed, and who expressed herself grammatically and fluently. She had, aooording to her own story, "been once In the first society. She mentioned the names of ladies well known to me wi h whom she was once intimate, and who. occasionally gave her old dresses-bat, as she saadr no money. Unfortunately it was money she wanted, " as her health was delioate, and her apretite fastidious, and she required canted fruit stl a mutton chop," for each day's bill of fare. Her plan bhad been to solicit funds for the par pose, renting a small room li one of our up-town , uses, from whence she made her daily pilgrim ages for forage. When she succeeded well, she -'lerred lounching at Delmosnoo's; this I after wards ascertined, upon inquiry of a lady who had assisted her. The want of the neoessary mutton chop was the immediate Pause of her call upon me, " whose writings she had !ways admired." One of the ladies, she said, had savised her to go to one of those boarding-houses recently opened to afford a clean and respectable home to women in narrow circuomtances, at a small -ot to each inmate. She had gone there and tried . but re , the coc kery was not what she was a a ton-chop and so she returned to her origial i.. that plan. Now there was no doubt, of conrt ' 4,, she was a humbug. The strength she expe,. - in walking over the city to solicit funds, would, it expended in looking foremployment, lhave placed her sbove the necessity for charity. And the eloquence with which she plead for the daily mutton-chop, showed practice, which might be turned to good account, with less fleeting results. Well, I confess, with ame, that to rid myself oe the applicant--who seemed to have plenty of trne. while I had little-I bought her off with two dollars. Rid mysIf, did I say? She retared, as m-ght be expected, in two days, for more mattoes chop. Meantime I had ascertained that when she was an inmate ot the very nice boarding house to which the lady had sent her, paying her board a week In advance, until she could look about for employment, she had Ianlted the youag ladles who were gladof a respectable home like that, by remar king, " that she was a lady, and had never been before uasociated with low oreatures who had to earn their living teaching music ;" and that ob jecting to pay her board there, and at the asma time refusing to leave, she was finally, properly, and compulsorily ejected. I also ascertained that she called for "mattoa bchops" on a well-known clergyman here in Nerw irk, stating her very delicate appetits. His re ply wans, "Madam, If you aure ill, ad in need of food, I will give you a mutton-chop for to-day but I cannot agre to fnd yo a I mattO ehope.' I Ialso aecertained that when the Npimopal ehurch funds ran dry for mutton-chope, thet with woman's quick aptitude she threw herself upon the boeom of the Catholio Church; and I have no doubt that Baptists and Methodists will also be called upon for the same purpose. ibhe alo told me, with charming candor, that she succeeded much better with gentlemen than ladies; and La one Instance, where the lady of the house, wearied with pro titles giving to her, declined seeing her agaIn, this indomitable lover of mutton chops Imme diately requested to sce hwr husbaaad. Hoping to make a final thing of it, the hauband went down, listened to the immediate neaseity for a new mutton-chop, gave five cents, the only loose change be hal, which this "lady, who could not associate with low cretures who earsned their Inving teaching musidc.'" coolly pooketed, and to U'd her steps to ' flagrant fields and pastura new." Mrs. Zimmer, who halls from Lawreseebnrg. Indians, eloped from hef huaband, who raides at that place, on Monday night, with one Charle feecher, taking with her seven hundred dollars of her husband s funds. By a vigorous Jerking of the telegraph wires the runways were arrested upon their arrival at Caolumbesl, sad the trust wife returned to her forgiving spone, lYl the check for her baggage and the avea edrd dollars in the hands of Meecher. Zimamr, eeing the torn afthirs had taken, went to Celambus to secure the money, but darlag his i e the wik again lit out, andIs •ow said hahe l Olela enjoying the embraces of her Slelt lover.
