WHISKEY FRAUD TRIALS. %
The political atmoephoro is clearer to-night than It
has been for some time post. There aro still rumors
that the Secretary of the Treasury will resign, but they
are feebly uttered and there is no truth tn them. The
politicians who havo been trying to mislead the President
into a blunder which would have been fatal to his j
reputation and, probably, to his party, have heard
from the country, and are now silenced. There is no
doubt that tho general foaling of alarm and indignation
which bos arisen over the country has scarod tho vilur
sort of politicians here. They dured not face the storm
they saw arising.
On Monday the House will domand the papers and
documents of all hinds in tho whiskey fraud investiga
lions and trials, and will probably appoint a com

GENERAL WASHINGTON DESPATCHES.
WAsnmuTOK, Feb. 25, 1878.
SECRETARY FIRH ON THE CONNECTION OF MINISTER
BCHENCK WITH THE EMMA MINE COMPANY.
The House Committee on Foreign AfTalrs made a
report to-day brictly recapitulating the points in the
correspondence between the Secretary of State and
General Schenck. Tlio documents were ordered to be
printed and referred back to the committee. The
chairman stated that the committco wero of opinion 1
that information of an important character has not yet
been submitted to them.
Secretary Fish, in answering the call of tho committeo
for the correspondence, closes his communication
as follows:?
As the resolution of the Houso makes a reference to i
tho action of tho Executive Department of the gov- i
eminent on this question 1 deemed it due to General
Schenck, as a public otlicer who has had various and
Important public trusts, and who hus lor many years
occupied a prominent position before the country, to
further state thai the course adopted in the department
growing out of these facts was bused on tho conviction
that, while tho use ot tho name of the Minister of the
United States in such un enterprise was inconsistent
with his position, at tho same time that General
Schenck had boon guilty ol' no wrong purpose or intent
in connecting himself with the company in question. 1
remuin firmly ol this opinion and am further satisfied
that ho, in common with many others, became a sullorcr
thereby.
The Secretary then responds to that part of the
resolution asking information concerning tho action
taken by the Exocutivo Department concerning tho
connection of the Minister to Kugland with the prosecation
of the "Mecbado Claim" against the British
government. He givos a history of the caso, and concludes
by saying:?
So far as reflections have been cast upon General
Schenck because of the prosecution of these claims or
because of a presentation of them by him to the
British government, a sense of Justico compels mo to
say that 1 am satisfied that such rcllections are unjust,
and that Ueneral Schenck is open to no imputations
w hatever arising therefrom.
THE EFFORT TO MAKE TIIE TOST OFFICE DEPARTMENT
SELF-SUSTAINING.
The Senato, some time since, passed an order directing
the Committee on Post OlUccs and Post ltoads to
consider and report some plan by which tho Apartment
might be inado soil-sustaining. In their Investigations
tho committee bad that the second class
of mail matter, which inclndes only newspapers
and magazines issued to regular subscribers, is now
carried at an annual loss of nearly (8,000,000
beyond tbe postage, and that this sum equals tho entire
deficiency of tho department Tho commitloe have
considered tho boat means of fixing tbe ralo on third
class matter and next Thursday will take up the rates
ou second class. They have Invited the managers of
a sufficient number of papers to givo a representation
of their different interests, as tt was impossible to invite
all to cunler with them, and to suggest how tho
rates on second class matter can be raised and give tho
least annoyance and inconvenience to publishers and
the public. It is believed that if the rates on nouspapers
can be raised so as to yield only $3,000,000 a
year that the poatago on letters can be reduced to two
cents.

LOUISIANA LEGISLATURE.
i
Nkw okj.kans, Feb. 25,1378.
In tbo House during the morning hour Mr. Kidd i
(democrat), of Jackson parish, offered a motion that a
committee of seven be appointed by tbo Speaker to investigate
what charges, if any, there aro against
William P. Kellogg demanding his impeachment, and
that they report as early us practicable. I
Mr. Matthews (republican), ol Tcnnas parish, raisod i
the point of order that this was an order of the House
and not amotion, and could not bo adopted without a
suspension of tho rules. I
The Speaker overruled tho point ol order.
Several republican mouibers demanded the yoas and '
nays. 1
Tho Speaker declined to order tho yeas and nays, and t
doclurod the motion carried.
Late in tho evening tho speaker announced the com- *
mtttoe as follows:?Messrs. Wilt/, Voung, Kin, Koontz, i
Jeffries, democrats, and Lcvisso and Demas, republi- i
cuns.
Mr. Demas moved that throo republicans bo placed 1
on the committee. Tabled by a strict party vote. t
Ol the Ave democrats on tho commute"' all but Wiltz j
Signed the Wheeler adjustment agreement.
This movement look the repuhheuns by surprise as 11
they did not anticipate any impeachment movomcut \
Governor Kellogg tonight addressed tho committee a
formal communication stating:?"I respectfully re- c
quest to bo informed when your committee proposes to j
enter upon this investigation, in order that I may appear
in person or by counsel us provided by section
1,739, lteviscd Statutes."
Governor Kellogg lias issued a proclamation con
veiling tho Senate In extra session, to commence immediately
on tbo expiration of tho present regular session, r
on Thursday, March 2, and to continue for and during ,
tho space of ten days, for tho purposo of considering
any executive or other business that may bo brought a
before them, or for tho purpose of silting as a court of B
Impeachment If necessary. r
The impression among tbo republicans seems to bo
that it was tbo purposo of tho House to prefer articles j
of impeachment against the Governor and Lieutenant I
Governor on the last day ol tho session, which would .
suspend them irom olllue and leavo the Speakor ol tho
House acting Governor under tho constitution, and It t
is believed, that convening tho Senate in extra session ]
will operate to quiet impeachment schcmos.
THE SIOUX WAR. i
THE GARRISON OT FORT TEASE RESCUED.
[From tlio Philadelphia Evening Bulletin.] I
ST. Louts, Fob. 25, 187(1. J
A special from Loavenworth, Kan., states that Fort l
Pease, on the Yellowstone, has been abandoned by <
the garrison. According to tho latost advices received
from that point Colonel llrishin had arrived thcro
with a small company of troops and barely '
saved tho garrison, which was In imminent danger of
being massacred by tho Sioux, who woro gradually
closing in on tho fort. Tno Indians seemed to bo
groatly enraged on account of tho oscapo of their prey, 1
and It* is expected that Colonol Brisbln and his troops
will have to light their way back to Fort Elliott It is
evident tlint the Indians are wull armed and capable of j
doing a great deal of damnge.

AMUSEMENTS.
ACADEMY OF MUSIC?ITALIAN OPEBA.
An Interesting performance took place last night at ,
the opera houso In Irving placo. The uiasterwork of
Mozart in opera, "Don Giovanni," was presented
for the purpose of giving Mile. Titiens an opportunity 1
to sing, under the best advantages, tbo two mugniQcont
arias ot Donna Anna, and of bringing out Madame
Teresa Carrono-Sauret as an operatic debutante. There
was much to ndmiro and much to praise In Mudarnu
CuM.tii.lii flrut i.A.rt In nnliltx il muinlii. glnnn.. VI ..
seemed to bo en rapport with the r6le, anil her Ringing
w.ir admirable. Tln-ro might be, to one who hog hoard
Soutag and Lucca in this role, a toupfon of
timidity in the lady's acting, natural, of course, *
to a first appearance, hut the accomplished j
vocal artist was shown in every scene, uud
a really beautiful voice was evinced iu the '
well known arias, "Battl, battl" and "Vedrai Carino." \
Mma Carre no may be complimontcd on having mndo .
the most decided success as a (16b u tan to in Itulian
opera ovor known in this city. It is, indeed, a triumph
when an American pianist who has won high renown f
as an interpreter of the noblest works of classical
writers achieves the most honorable position as a
songstress in an opera by such a composer as Mozart.
Mile. Titlena proved herself worthy of the great reputation
which she years ago attained in the rote of
Donna Anua. Tho two songs (if Mr. Wagner will permit
us to use such a term in connection with an
operatic sccna), which have stirred tho operutic world
for well nigh u century were delivered with an ellect
and grandeur that called forth reminiscences of Grist
and Pasta among many present Miss Beaumont was
an agreeable representative of Elvira. Urlgnoii modo
one of his old time hits in Don Ottavio's "II nno
tesoro." The rest of tho cast was abominable. The
chorus and orchestra, under tho direction of Mr. Haretzek,
showed careful training. "La Pavorlta" will
be given to-day.
JERSEY AND "JULIUS C.ESAR."
Last evening a large calcium light blazed on a p.*o
cession of about seventy-five gentlemen who marched
on tho north sido of Wost Twenty-third strcot in the
direction of Booth's Theatre. At the bead of the pro- '
cession marched Joseph IL Tookcr, manager of Booth's
Theatre, and Governor Bedle, of the State of Now Jersey,

uorno eighteen Stato Senators, among whom were "
Messrs. Leon, Abbott, Sowell, Madden and Hill, and *
following tho uigbleen Senators wore lilty-onn members f
of the New Jersey Slate Assembly, two by two, and i
looking exceedingly buppy. Manager Tookcr bad Invitod

vestibule ol the Fifth Avenue Hotel at eight
o'clock, and the word baviug becu given by , n
Mr. Tookor, the Legislature and captains ol lllties led v
Into lino, two by two. On reaching Booth's Theatre ?
they were met at tho entrance by Mr. Henry C. Jurrott, si
w ho welcomod the Governor and his associates w.TWnly. .
Governor Hedlo smiled graciously, and he and his ,,
cabinet were taken and placed In bo* on the right u
of the stage, hy Messrs Jarrett and Tookor, the box bolog
handsomely decorated with tho Amorican colors,
and having the shield and arms of New Jersey above the
entrance. The opposite box, "A," was occupied by
ex Govornor Ctirtm, of Pennsylvania, and some ladies. .
The Governors of the two neighboring .Stab s saluted
each other. As Governor Hedlo ontorcd bis box with ti
his Cabinet Slgnor Opertl gave the signal with his wand t
and tho orobortra struck up tho air, "Hail to the
Chief I" The Governor rose and bowed to the compliment,
tho audience, which Qlled the house completely,
cheered, the Senate rose and bowed, tho audience
then applandod, after which the ftftyone
members of the Assembly rose dnd bowed
which act of courtesy biought down thunderous
shouts of applauso. After the second act. and when I
Usesar had been well killed, Manager Tookor brought <
Governor Hedlo and his Cabinot behind tho scenes and
Introduced thorn to Messrs. Barrett, Davenport, Bangs,
Collier, Lcvtck and Vincent, and a few moments were
Bp*"* admiring tho scenic effects and complicated
machinery, which was explained by Stage Manager
Vincent to the Gubernatorial party. At tbe conclusion
of the performance, when tho guests left, a display of
lircworks was given thoin as they made thoir exit

An unuxual and attractive performance la promised

public on this occasion are tho pupils el Stgnor Albltea
and Mme. Gaxzanlga. It may not be generally known
to the publio that we have In this city a musical collegs
ol such proportions sou axrellonce that it* stu
5
dents can vdhture safely on ao ambitious a project at
tbe performance in public ot a work of rush importance
as the "Hallo In Mascbcra;" but from our acquaintance
with the capabilities ot the pupils we may
lafely say that this opera is nut always rendered l>p
professionals with the IMolity, spirit and freshness
which will distinguish this performance of amateurs
fins event mark- an epoch in the history of music
lore, and Is eminently honorable to our progress in
his great study.
