It proved to he, what all might have antici pated, a rare musical entertainment, ft was grand in all things save numbers that constitute an auditory commensurate with the genius of Ole Bull as a musician. The audience, though select and refined, was en tirely too small for the occasion. Odd bellows' Hall should have been thronged yesterday with the devotees of music and genius. People are not per mitted to see and hear every day a Paginini o® an Ole Bull: and when they have an op portunity to do so, they should embrace it The programme for the matinee embraced S very choice selection of vocal and instru mental music, all of which was given in the most exquisite style by Ole Bull, Miss Graziella Ridgeway, Signor Ferranti and -Mr. Joseph Hart I)enek. oln answer to an encore that demanded recognition, Ole Bull appeared andjierformed the popular air at tached to the song of "The Arkansas Trav eler."

Lewis county, New York, has so many bears running around nights that the girls fear to go out. The idea of being hugged sets them into a cold chill. The Warmnthite Manifesto.' fFrom the Washington Chronicle,' Any New Orleans man who, knowing \\ armoth as he must, undertakes a missioa to Washington in his behalf, is entitled to little consideration in advance. So mue.h is certain, eveD if the opposing party is not all that could be desired or entirely blame less in all its means and aims. We do not presume that the Republican leaders iu Louisiana have the highest attainable ap proach to perfection, but they are immensu rably above the corrupt faction against which they are contending. This was ap preciated by the large body of citizens, re gardless of party, who urged the committee to desist from going on their intendtd mis sion to Washington. These entreaties, or other reasons, appear to have kept two thirds of the committee at home. What was the object of this mission 1 To persuade the President, not simply to let the contending parties alone in their dis tracting conflict, so injurious to business and so perilous to the maintenance of peace and good order—a request which we will consider hereafter—but actually to inter vene in the interest of the wicked War moth. This was the real meaning, very thinly disguised. A United States judge, on application from citizens of Louisiana, had issued an order of court, in the enforce ment of which he had found it necessary, in his judgment, to call in the aid of United States troops, as provided by law. We are not discussing whether his decision was right or wrong. If rendered corruptly, or by criminal usurpation of authority, the remedy is to be sought in an appeal to a higher court and in tho judge's impeachment. On its face, this was a le gitimate judicial decision. The demand for military support was clearly lawful. To ask the President to interfere with the functions of a judicial officer is to ask him to do an unlawful thing and to violate his oath of office. So far. the committee was clearly iu the wrong. The spokesman of that committee, Campbell, an ex-judge-of the Supreme Court, we believe, who re signed because his State (Alabama) had "seceded" from the Union, well knew that the Executive could not constitutionally in terfere, as_ proposed, with the judicial branch of the government. He of course knew the request would be peremptorily denied, as it was But it has been maintained, with a little more appearance of plausibility, that the President should not have " interfered " in the quarrel by recognizing either of the con flicting governments. This "abstention" wbs possible up to a certain point, and desirable so far as possible. That limit was reached, in the President's judgment, at the date of Attorney-General Williams answer ' inohback. recognizing him as acting Governor, under the laws of Louisiana. When called upon for aid :u maintaining order, when revolution seemed imminent' and when there were violent and menacing demonstrations of a purpose to defy the action of the States courts, that call some respouse. From the necessity of the case, that response must recognize either Pinchback or Warmoth as the Governor of Louisiana. There was no alternative. The President, under the legal advice of the At torney General, undoubtedly did right in recognizing Pinchback. It was, too, the best thing for Louisiana, since this was the practical ending of what promised otherwise to be an interminable complication. Law, justice and equity were, in our opinion, all best regarded in that action. We do not 6ee how any but ckuuorou-* and excited partisans could think of offering further objection to this solution of the difficulty But Campbell and his committee went on to Washington and were listened to by the President. Ha was not convinced by their arguments. He had deliberately taken his ground, and saw no reason to change it (*oing to New York, this Warmothite dele gation has issued a manifesto. What we might- otherwise have called a Parthian ar row proves to be largely a labored self-de fense. They sa.v that they are not " mere allies and agents of Gove'rnor Warmoth t But the truth is undeniable that they w**nl e United list have t s But the truth is undeniable that they w**nl to Washington to work in his interest"—to se cure his reinstatement as Governor. They deny that tlieyaie "parties" *o or cogni zant of " any political trickerf intended to defeat the voice of the people*,''' They have the hardihood to claim for themselves that, *oii Jheir mission, they have* acted *• in the fairest, non-partisan spirit." A special to the Enquirer evrm says': "These gentlemen say tha« not one'®! their nuiubei 0 is an effice-holder »,;■ an office-seeker. They are? composed of merchants, bankers and lawyers, and have no politicians among them."' How truthful these assertions are may be judged from the fact that among the signers of this mani festo are such men as H. V. Ogden, War mothite Attorney General, and Sella Mar tin. a notorious office-seeker and worthless politician—and the names of these persons are each twice signed to the document, as are also those of E. B. Wheelock, II. O. Seixas. C. M. Wilcox, Richard Taylor (Colonel Dick), and numerous others, we suppose just to swell the list, which, dupli cations included, numbers cnly forty-four out of the original one hundred What the committee represent ns to the situation, what they think of jt legally, constitutionally, and otherwise, ami what they want, the current news .ronorts for days past have sufficiently indicated. Here is about the substance in "a nutshell, Quoted fiom their manifesto : When the King of Great Britain estab lished arbitrarily a government in one of tiie colonies, the remaining colonies took alarm lest it might serve as a precedent as well as an instrument to establish such governments elsewhere. Bcsi^l-s, men are less patient under wrongful orders and acts of a judicial tribunal than even of violence horn other sources of authority. A govern ment, wiiich rests for its organization u; ,n an illegal judicial order, executed by a mar shal with companies of soldiers, does not command as much respect or authority as if the judicial appendages had been dis pensed with and the army had sot up a government with a strong and usurp ing hand. The committee take the liberty to say that they have no connection with these suits as parties or attorneys, neither do they claim any of the offices in dispute. They have not heretofore been concerned in the controversies among political classes, which have endangered tho peace of and brought scandal upon the State. They affirm that during the list four years there has not been a good government in Louis iana. There baa been extravagance, prodigality, dishonesty and waste in pub lie expenditure. The pubiic debt has been enormously increased, with but little cor responding benefit. The -credit of the State has been given to speculating cor porations for personal aims. The tax. s on property have assumed such proportions that they might be called rents paid by the proprietorsjto the State for its occupation and use% the aorume _ ____________ ___ laws to control elections, corporations and public institutions stimulate these excesses of office-holders, and the consequence is de pression and discontent. The State needs an hoDeat, faithful and responsible govern ment, conducted to attain the public objects, and not to enrich its members or to perpetuate their power. There scun an •arnest.effort to obtain truth government at the ast election. Who made that efl'ort-»-these advocates of ■\\ an- oti:i Was it the supporters of Mo Enery. the W armothite candidate for Gov rnorf W as it those wh s drove negro • I-Ts from tho° polls, falsified election re turns, and endeavored to withhold the re turns altogether from the lawful canvass ing board to be placed lor manipulation in j the hands of «*ne arbitrarily manufactured by Warmoth? After this remarkable pro testation we a:»; prepared fef such high declamatory demonstrations as the follow, iugr We affirm, Without fear of contradiction, that the foregoing statement exhibits, on the part of tho United States court, the most unpat alloled and baseless usurpation of jurisdiction and authority of which the annals ot jurisprudence afford any example. The action of a returning board, recognized The taxes upon ffusinessYpprew sreial and laboring classes. The ♦ and vested with all its powers by this court has been equally unprecedented. Without any of the official returns before them: without any of the official data on which alone their action could have boen right fully based, they have presumed to pro claim the results of the election. The declaration by them of the votes cast in the different parishes is as purely fanciful as if no election whatever bad been held. They have aribitrarily re duced and increased the vote on one side or the other in different parishes to suit their purposes. In several parishes, while re turning or ever, adding to the votes for their candidates, they have simply annihi lated, or stricken out entirely, the votes cast for their opponents. In other parishes they have exactly reversed the returns, giving to their eauuidates a majority which had really been returned for their op ponents. They have not pretended to fur nish the public with any statement of the basis on which they proceeded, or the theory on which they acted. ,JTheir wholi* conduct is without any kind of reasonable explana tion. We submit to the people of the United States that such proceedings reach a point at which the whole theory of popular gov ernment is reversed and overthrown. The means by which such results have been reached are enough to startle the public mind,abut the results themselves are not less appalling, A Cass of Political Oppression Sadly Marred. Unddf the above heading, the New Or leans correspondent of the New York Times telegraphs to that paper on the twenty second the following: The recent article of the New York Her ald in relation to the seizure of the New Or leans Times is entirely false in its state ments, and, therefore, unjustified in its con clusions. The reputed informant of the Herald is and has been one of the Warmoth clique, one of the chief editors of the New Orleans Timet, an almost constant compauion of Warmoth, and a pensioner upon his bounty. If. is he who fabricates the dispatches to the Hera'A, in which he takes occasion to as perse and defame the character and repu tation of every Republican official in this State. In the ease of tho seizure of the New Orleans Times, it is believed that it was done through a concerted understand ing between McKee, the petitioning creditor, aud Weed, in order that the latter might be relieved from the claims of pressing creditors other than McKee. Weed is hope lessly insolvent, owing McKee, his former partner in the mercantile business over $5000. More than one of Weed's notes is past due and protested, He owes the King estate over $75,000, and to banks and brokers large amounts, said to be over $50,000. The one-half interest in the New Orleans Times is in the name of one Hoyt in New York, where it 13 placed by Mr. Weed, who, besides this transfer, has put a large amount of property which he had be come possessed of in the hands of his son. For some time past he has been making a disposition of property ot various kinds by transfer to his son and other parties, so it is alleged, and so it is believed will he proved. It is not very long since Mr. Weed went through the bankruptcy court and obtained a discharge upon his voluntary application, by which he was relieved from a very heavy indebtedness incurred while he was en gaged in mercantile business here under tho firm name of C. A. Weed & Go., with J. H. McKee as a partner. Before the pro oeedings in the present case were instituted McKee offered to take Mrs. Weed's note Mrs. Weed possesses a large amount of real estate in New i'ork—but this was refused The Now Orleans Times lias been iosiug money every day for months past on ac count of its support of Warmoth. who paid $.)0,000 for its advocacy of his cause. The immediate cause of the present mi hap to Weed's paper was his inability to ob fiiin any recognition of the $150,000 in State warrants issued to liitn for election pur poses* McKee, the petitioning creditor, has ao connection whatever with the Repub iicans.sir with their party, but, on the con trary, is a bitter partisan' of the Deposition and a close supporter of Warmoth. The Hidional Republican has been merged witli the Republican, and ceases with its publication to-day. The issue of the Times to-day is not considered much of a success, but pours forth its billingsgate against the Republicans bitterly as ever did its pro tuty^eto Kew> Line of Steamships,, W<? Commend $0 the attention of our readers the closing paragraph in the sub joined article from the Morning Star, in which there is a streak of good sense : We have seen in a recent number of a Queenstown paper an interesting notice of toe new line of steamers recently establish ed between that port and New Orleans. The two steamers already built, the Minne sota and Louisiana, are spoken of as among the finest ships in the world. The former of these hfci left that port for this the day before the issue ot the paper we refer to and consequently may soon be expected at our whart. The convenience thus afforded for the direct importation of fine Irish fabrics and manufactures will be of great impor tance to our commercial interests and will no doubt be profited hv to the utmost capacity of the line. The immense quantities of corn and c'ot - ton aud other exports constantly calling an influx of shipping to this port afford an op portunity for cheap importations almost unknown in the history of any other empo rium. and New Orleans ought to know how to profit by the circumstance. New Y'ork can not import nearly so cheaply as this city, and the problem always presents itself as an unanswerable one, why goods can not bo sold cheaper here than there. The fact is that such a state of things is simply abnormal, and can not last. Im ports aBust, in time, come back bv the chan nel through which exports go out. If the Minnesota arrives safely in spite of the fearful gales recently prevailing so generally and disastrously, we hope that our community will manifest its sense of the importance of this movement by the immense crowds of visitors who will go to welcome her. In fact, the occasion ought to lie made one of public and official con gratulation, not only through courtesy, but principally to arouse the interest of our population in such matters. The question of a growing commerce ought to be more attractive than heated debates over the pickings of a street commissioner's office or the prospects of a soavenger-general bill. Let us grow industrious, thrifty and en terprising; let us convince Wall street that e are becoming prosperous, and the White House will be obsequious enough. Prosper ous people are always highly respected. A monument } 9 to be e?ected to Hannah Dustin, a?( the (junction v[ Jhe Uontooeook and J'cmigewassett rivers, in.
