The production of one of Wagner's operas
never before produced here naturally attracted a
large audience at the Varieties last night. The
"Flying Dutchman" is one of Wagner's earlier
p-oductions. and, like all of his works, is of a
legendary and romantio character. The hero of
the story is a Dutch sailor condemned by an
imprudent vow to navigate the sea forever, or
nutil he finds a true and noble woman who will
consent to marry him and share his late. His ves
sel, the Phantom Ship, encounters a Norwegian
brig in one of its voyages. The Flying Dutchman
offers the captain of this brig all the treas
ure he has on his vessel if he will give him
his daughter Senla. The second act intro
duces ,eenta at home spinning in the midst
of her companions. The picture of the
Flying Dhi&hman is hung on the wall. She has
half way fallen in love with it, and is anxious to end
the endless voyage and torment of the unhappy
man. This she finally resolves to do, and to give
herself to him. Erik, to whom she has been
oromised, protests against this. Her father ar
rises and pre.a~se i.. 4 vin. a IDutclhman to his
daughter, who accepts him. In the thiru .,
IEPik still ' leads his case, and the Flying DIutel
man, who thinks she has finally cone uded not,
to have him, orders his shiv away. But she hay
resolved to share .s rfate under all oircumstances,
and ' io .'wa on his voyage. Thus the story ends.
t. ,ivery roman io throughout, and the dramatic
portion or the osera qolte attralrove. In the last
'cone, where the IFlbl IIt llPdchtian and his
crew sail from pbrt, tie mecha.ltsm of the
wnving ship was particularly fine, and the veselt
turned and moveo orv r the stage with as much
grace as if .hoe were really at sea.
There has been so much said abrut Wagner's
music, that it is scarcely worth while to discluse
it now. The "Flying Dutchman," it need only
be said, is peculiarly Wagnerian and boasts of all
the eco ntroctties of "the music of the future."
To many it was incomprehensible and to some
unpleasant, buit o:hers a emed to greatly enjoy
it. 'Ihere were but few airs in the opera that
seemed to meet with cordial applause. Mme.

intention to murder him, ars from the victim's
-appearanoe-afew honrsatsaer the affay, it was
evident that although they had failed in k1-liig
him, they had put marks upon him that it will
perhaps take years to efface; his nose was split
open, his neck lacerated
his face horribly bruised scarred and swollen,
and in all he presented a terrible appearance.
I'his fend has been going on for some months,
Officer Olements only waiting for an opportunity
to reap his revenge. The cause of the diffirolty
appears to have originated in a trial before the
Police Board. Some time ago a dog bit a child
on Officer Olemente' beat, and as that officer
could not be found, two citizens went on Officer
0 ier's beat and demanded of him to come and
kill the animal. Ober complied with the request,
and as he was doing his duty
and an officer named Sharpless appeared upon
the scene and made him a prisoner; they took
him to the Second Precinct Station, and there
preferred charges against him of having dis
charged fire arms within the city limits. On this
charge Ober was brought before the Police Board
and honorably discharged. The board then
ordered Chief Boylan to prefer charges agains'
the two officers who had arrested Ober.
The charges were preferred and the two ac
onsed, Clements and Sharpless, were repri
manded by the board.

under the impression that Ober was the man that
had caused eIs arrest, and, to nse Ober's own ex

The unf'rol nate officer, in an interview with a

wrong about (lermiruts and avoided him. Yester
day morning I labored under the sarue impres

Clements and his crowd had left. After they had
gone I star ed to go, home, and passed the four
offilers in question rear the corner of I'erpsi
chore and Arnuciation strets. Clements called
me aed I stopped. He walked up to me and said :
'Ober, what have you against me.' I replied,
'You know that you and 8harpless artested me
for shooting a dog, and that is why I don't speak
to you.'
"Clements then
I grappled with Ltim and asked him what lie was
doing. He made no reply, bht releasing himself
from my hold struck me again. I then k oc.ed

me. Supernumerary Kennedy struck me in
the back of the head; Corporal Barrett, Rider
and ld ments struck me in the face. I they,
cried murder, but no one came to my assistance."
The four accused say that Oter struck Clem
ente fir·t, and called him out I his name. They
also all declare that n.o one but (hlmments struck
Ober; that they were merely spectators.
At this stage of the affray, when Ober cried
murder, Acting Corporal B -rrr it suddenly re

A Number of Houses Destroyed In the
Second Precinct.
At half-past 2 o'clock yesterday morning a fire
that is supposed to be the work of an inoendiary
broke out in the two story double frame house
No. 302 Liberty street. ~his property, which is
owned by Mrs. Taylor, and occupied jointly by
herself and Mrs. Schwartz, was totally destroyed;
insured in the Merchants' Mutual Insurance
Company for $2500. The flames, backed no by the
heavy north wind,whcih was blowing a perfect gale
at the time, communicated to the two story frame
house No. 298 Liberty street, and left it in ashes.
This property was owned by Mrs. Clasy and oc
cupied by Mrs. Fridland. Whether the hoens.
was insured or not could not be ascertained. The
flames then extended and slightly damaged the
house of Mrs. McCann. A spark from this fire
set fire to the house owned by E. S. Oliver, at the
corner of Melpomene and Franklin street, and
occupied by Mrs. Greenback. The flames were
discovered and extinguished with slight damage.
The alarm was turned in from box No. 57.
An Evenlng Blaze.
At 5 o'clock last evening a fire broke out in a
shed in the rear of the double frame cottage Noe.
354 and 356 Dryades street. The cottage was
occupied jointly by E. Cresswell and H. Hauch.
The cottage was not injured, but the shed was
totally destroyed; loss estimated at $75. The
flames then ran through the block and commu
nicated to the kitchen of the two-story brick

At 7 o'clock, Wednesday morning, the schooner
Rita, Capt. Francis Barrow, while attempting to
enter the New Basin sprung a leak, and sank so
rapidly that the crew had hardly time to save
themselves. The schooner, at the time of the
catastrophe, was loaded with sand. The crew
jumped into the lake and swam to shore.

Last evening Officer Fitzgerald entered the
Central 8tstion, having in his custody Gabriel
Gregoire and a woman of ill repute named Jemi
ma Hordoy. When the prisoners were in the

after making the charge he unblushingly stated

had courage enough to use it. Officer Fitzgerald
then locked both of the accusoed up on a charge
of disturbing the peace.

A Short (hat in Broadway with the Demo
cratic President Elect.
1I. Y. lierald.]
Quietly and unobtrusively among the throng
walked the late Democratic candidate for
President of the United States, Samuel J.
Tilden. He was jostled at and trod upon-
walking slowly as he did --by the more ener
getic mass of Young America that moved on
ward round and about him and--that did not
know him. Dressed in a very ordinary blue
chinchilla overcoat, albeit he wore a Parisian
hat, the brim being considerably more curledl
than the New York fall styles of the season
allows, he was the most unobserved of all that
trotted along the pavement of the east side
of Broadway. He certainly would have re
mained unobserved but for the accidental re
cognition on the part of a gentleman who had
known the ex-Governor of the State of New
York during his temporary residence in
Albany. With an eye always to the windward,
the ex-Governor was not in the least aston
ished when addressed by this gentleman, and
at once entered into a spirited conversation
with him, commencing with the inquiry,
"Governor how do you feel ?"
"Never felt better in my life," responded
Mr. Tilden. His appearance indicated that
he was in the best of health and spirits, and
he was communicative in an unusual degree.
"What do you think, Governor," continued
his interlocutor, "of the policy President
Hayes is pursuing ?"
"I think he is chilling the fanaticism in the
Republican party."
"Is he breaking up the party in your
"lie will have no party very soon," replied
Mr. Tilden; "he will in three years from now
have no mote support than a corporal's
"Then you think, Gov. Tilden, that he will
alienate from his support both Democrats
and Republicans?"
"I think so. The South appears to be dis
posed to pat him on the back and urge him
forward in his work of reconciliation, but will
they stand by him?"
"What do you suppose .they will do, Gov
"Well, I suppose they will do as they al
ways did, support none but a true blooded
Democrat that will represent them."
"Then you think that these ovations to
President Hayes in the diflerent Southern
States were assumed for ia purpose '? Were
insincere, in fact ?"
"It was all humbug," replied Mr. Tilden,
with emphasis. "It can't be that these South
ern Democrats will accept an Administration
which they know is founded on fraud, and
which is Republican in spite of ever.,thing."
"But they do accept it, Mr. Tilden.
"Yes, they do accept it, but you know the
present Administration is falling to pieces,
and where it will end heaven only knows."
"Do you purpose prosecuting your right to
the presilential chair ?"
"Certainly, I do," answered Mr. Tilden,
spiritedly. "The country knows that I was
legally elected President, and this American
people is too intelligent to forget that one
glaring and paramount fact. ()n that fact the
very foundations of the republic rest. If the
voice of the nation be not realized in the se
rious question of electing its supreme ruler
then you may calculate on bitterness of leel
ing that will not be assuaged until the wrong
is righted. The people who supported me
feel to-day that their votes were given in vain.
They feel that they might as well have cast
their suffrages for a dummy, and they num
ber so large a portion of the population of
the whole country that it is an unwise experi
ment to trifle with their rights. As far as I
am concerned it is of little consequence, but I
tell you one of the gravest princioles in rep
resentative government is involved, and if the
people do not see to it the matter will be
subject for deep regret to coming genera
"What do you think of the action of the
Senate in the case of the Southern Senators?"
"Well, as I said before, the Administration
and the Republican party are going to pieces.
Mr. Hayes has no color and the Republican
party has no policy."
"You appear, Governor, to feel a distrust
of the Southern support of Hayes?"
"Humbug," responded the Governor, sen
tentiously, "you can't mix oil and water,"
anti then he looked around, saw what aston
ished him and walked briskly off, entered
a Broadway stage and droveup town.
