The Btcnliry of War says to-night that the adminis
tration haa had nnder consideration tor a long time the
toaditlon of aflhlra Is Lonlalana and that, to-day, upon
the telegram ot Acting-Governor Aatolne the Prealdent
lecided to direct that General Augur, commanding tbo
Oeparunent of the Gulf, shall be allow rd to uso
kie discretion la complying with any request
made by the State anthoritlea lor the enforcement of
law, the preservation of order and the prevention of
violence. Of course, this action of the military co
operating with the civil anthoritlea, at the instance of
the latter, ta only contemplated br the instractlona
given, so far as may be necessary In the proper func
tions exercised by the State officials, and to seonre the
proper working of the State government. Orders
have accordingly been given by Uie President
In this direction, and the Secretary of War baa
directed that they'be earned ont Great confidence Is
felt in General Augnr's careful aae of the discretion
liven him on aooount of hia well known reliability and
bis general experience in questions where a nloety
arises in regard to any Intarforence with the civil au
thorities when the military are to be brought into
requisition. This, It Is said, la why the President,
tne Secretary of War and General Sher
man concurred In the advisability of placing
the whole thing virtually In the hands of General
tngnr for flnal diapoaitlon under the obvious duty of
keeping within such bounds as are prescribed by the
Thus far no great consequence la given by the ad
Ainiatration to the oocurrencea transpiring in Felici
ana pariah; but It la thought, from the lonf
sonsultatlcn had at the Cabinet meeting to
day, that every proper remedy will be taken by
the government to prevent the disgraceful oocurrencea
?f yesterday tn Louisiana. The feehnga of thoae who
are outaide, however, and are well posted in affairs
there and the impending political contest aay that thla
la but the beginning of the end; that the negro, who
haa been patient so long, moat not be goaded to dea
peratlon, especially where they are so largely In the
majority aa la Feliciana parish, where the numbers
are, It la Bald, about 4,000 colored people to
1,600 w hi tea. Burnings by lncendlariea, aaaasslnatlon
and a war of the racea may be expected. To check
this Anally ihi conservative element muat atep In.
Tbia la tbe view of the meat experienced and sensible
Loulsanlana here. They openly blame the administra
tion for the condition of aflhlra now prevail
ing. indeed a Southern republican Congreasman
went ao far to-night as to aay that
the immediate remedy lor the whole trouble lay in the
relegation of power to the whites, who would there
upon divide into two parties, as they were before the
war?aay Into democrats and whlga?and they would
divide tbe colored people between them, and each
party would then protect ita own colored allies In
tbia way only would the oolor line disappear and whltoa
ana blacks oeaae their oontinual quarrelling.
The Secretary of War aent In to-day hla reviaed esti
sates for tho War Department The reduction In the
army appropriation proper is lesathan $4,000,000, a re*
vision which is regarded with great disaatlalactlon by
the Military and Appropriation committees, who were
led to believe that Secretary Taft would be more
economical in hia proposed expenditures. He Is said
to have promised the committee a larger figure or re
trenchment and they are disappointed. While be ia
accused ol thus having receded from his original good
Inufctlons the Secretary ssys for himself that he baa
proceeded upon tbe advice of and alter consultation
with the moat experienced and prominent officers or
the army, Including General Sherman, Lieutenant
General Sheridan, Major General Hancock and
Ouartermaater General Meigs, to cut down
tho Qgaree to tbe very loweat possible "notch"
ind haa succeeded In making a reduction ol $6,000,000,
Including the Items In tbe Sundry Civil Bill, which
he sa>s is the very bost he could da This result was ac
complished by lopping off expenses In the Quarter-tnaa
ler General's and Ordnance departments and In the for
tification account. Tbe pay and commissary branches of
the army, together with tbe office work ing force re
main untouched. Secretary Talt examined every
thing cloeely bunaeir and made the best tnveetl
fation possible, and be feels that he has done what la
right. Though be may not have pleased all the mem
Sera of tbe committee vet he could not consent to
?ripple the service in aay way.
The direction In which he haa notably effected tho
reduction will be lound In the Itema or clothing, camp
and garrison equipage, and the Rock 1 aland and Bcnicla
arsenals and army quarters. He regretted to learn
that he did not meet all the expectations o(,Ahe com
mittee, but he bad tried lo do what ia right and expo
nent In the matter, with all the most reliable Informa
tion at hla band. Such sources of widespread informa
tion aa were at hla command warranted him, aa he be
lieved, In eaying that he had belter opportunities of
lodging tho real wants of tbe army than tbe gontieaien
of the committee.
The Houae, ir It has Ita way tbia session and follows
the recommendationa or the Naval Committee, will
Bake Important and sweeping chaagea In the navy
yard system, both In tbe number of tbe yards and in
'heir management. It will lie remembered that undor
he general reaolutlon directing an Inveatigatlou or the
lavy yards sub-committees on this branch or the sub
n et were delegated to visit all the navy yards, and the
itutiHii's ol Information gathered by three sewral sub
committees have been grouped lor the Inspection snd
Jeflberstiou of the full committee. A report will be
(oribcooiieg In a day or two reoommendicg, among
stlier metturos for sccarlag retrenchment tn the naval
uryice, that all navy yards be cloaca excepting tbo
?neat Brooklyn, the ono at Noriolk and the one at

ptirpoees of repair; that, eventually, but two yards be
maintained aud ktpt open?lo wit, Brooklyn and Mare
Island; that no unl station be authorised or eetab- |

shall bo selected from sucn of the closed yards as ss?y <

Mr. Willis, of New York, chairman of the sob-com
mittee which visited Brooklyn, Is prepared with figures
to show thai tbe new navy yard at League Island will |
cost $60,000,060 to oompiete. The committee will re
port la favor of retaining the navy yards at Kittery
and Peasacola as government property, to be used in
cose of war or other emergencies. ?
The fsbjeet of the management ot and discipline la
the navy yard will make an important feature of the
report as well, and those who have had an opportunity
of getting at the views of the committee say that thojr
will recommend the abolishsieul of the bureau system
and that orders be given through tbe commanders
thereof; the performance of watch duty by marines;
tbe aaslmltatlon of prices and time of labor to those of
private toatracts and the punishment as a criminal
offence of making assessments on employees or receiv
ing commissions for contracts. It is also ecntemplated
to prevent Mte doing of private work, or the doing of
any work wtthout previous appropriation therefor
or the charging of work dono In one bureau to another)
The office cf Civil Engineer is regarded as superfluous
and its abolishment will be recommended.
News has been received from San Francisco that the
agents of the government are vig srously pushing the
war against the distillers in that city. The seliure of
Ave distilleries a few days since has added to tho ex
citement there, and most strenuous efforts are being
made by tbe local officers and the distillers and
such allies as they are able to command to stop
investigation and to drive off tho officials who
are oonducting II A short time since ono of
the most active ot these men was approachod
and offered $30,000 In gold It tbe Investigation of the
j whiskey frauds could be stopped. There is considera
ble pressure brought to bear upon the California Con
gressmen and politicians here in Washington, and
many charges are being preferred against tbe agents of
the government now at work among tte distillers In
San Francisco The methods of fraud thus far discov
ered only diner from those unearthod in Chicago, St.
Loals and Milwaukee In their being carried on wit|
more boldnoss, if possible, and apparently with a bet
ter understanding between some ot tbe Excise officers
and the distillers than existed in these cities. The
subject Is likely to attain great prominence within a
very short time.
When tho Senate wont into executive session as a
high court on the Belknap caso Senator Edmunds, of
Vermont, took the floor in favor, it is said, ot holding
Jurisdiction and delivered a caretully prepared address,
lasting through the whole day. His argument made a
serious Impression on tbe body. It Is now thought that
the argument will consume tbe rest of the week. Sena

Representative Meade, of New York, who has been
tor some time managing tbe bill for the admission of
New Mexico, whlon was referred to htm, and on which
be haB prepared an adverse report, finds that every one
else is getting credit for the work done by him and the
handling of such an Important question. He was much
surprised, if not snnoyed, to-day by tbe knowledge
that his work was attributed to others. He has pre
pared a very elaborate paper on tbe subject and will
bring it Into the House at once. It is by no means de
cided as yet, however, what will be the fkte of New

to it not having yet developed.
Washhoton, Hay 18, 1870.
rr msmkbs and papees?how the elec
Tho special commltteo to examine Into the federal
offices In Louisiana farther examined Major Edyar
Solye to-day. The witness produced a large number
of letters and telegrams from Congressman Frank
Morey to himself in order to substantiate the evidence
given yesterday. He also produced an agreement
made between hijnself and Morey st the time Morey
bought the documentary evidence of witness implicat
ing himself. It read as follows:?
Tho package accompanying this agreement, and en
closed with It and sealed, la to be delivered to Hun.
I Frank Morey or to his ordor on November 1, 1870, or
i at any time thereaiier that b? may call for it, provided
j that up to ibat time Major Edgar Selye has, smcu No
i vetnber 1, 1876, been provided with a position having a
salary ol not less than $126 per month, said position
to be In the Custom House at New York city or as agent
in the Secret Service Department of the government
or some similar position, or that bo shall receive tlie pay
ol such position during the time, the fact Is to be deter
mined by such acknowledgment of Major Kdgar Helye
as is satisfactory; or, in the event of doubt, by such
evidence as muy be produced by said Frauk Morey,

November 1, 1870, to produce auch evidence beiug
allowed said Frank Morey lor ibis purpose. This dons
and signed by mo this 21st day ol October, 1876.
Tho witness then went on to recount theefforts msde
by Morey to cbuin the position, and stated that after
his failure therein Morey mads another arr<uigemont
with him, by which, In consideration of certain sums
of money, he delivered up all the documents. His
I story was simply a repetition of his statement yester
j day, fortified bv a copy of the papers which he bad re
| talned.
j Witness was asked to explain, when he said that two
J indictments were pending against him In Louisiana Tor
cutting telegraph wires and robbing the mails, and
| Moray bad ouo ol them dismissed and told bim that
| the other would bo held over him to use if be took any
I steps in this matter. The witness also produced some

, persons in Louisiana In October of 1874, and said
| Morey, Ray and the Green family sat up on the
j night of the 23d of October and made out the list, and

| ness to copy them, sign them snd Issue them ss com
ing from bimsell.
Witness wss requested to nsme some of the trans>
actions at that time, but reluaed to do so as It would
criminate himself.
Q. Has anything been said to you about going to
Canada, and not testilyiug be lore this commltteo ? A.
Yes; Mr. Soucr, a member ol the Legislature, from
Louisiana, wished to see me at the Fifth Avenue Hotol,
in New York; I met him, and he told me the
Hergeant-at-Arms was in town and 1 bad
better g? It Canada, and he showed me a despatch
from Morey to Caiey asking Casey to go to the
Custom Honse and get me a leave of absence;
Casey did go and asked Mr. Sharp II be would retain
my place for mo akd allow my pay to eonttoue while I
went to Csnada; Houcr said be would give me $160
rash to so with and $160 per month while I wss away;
Mr. Sharp said be could not give mo loave of absence,
but would give ine a place when I returned; Casey
asked me what I knew about the New Orleans
Custom House, snd >ald If anything wrong bad
been done tbero it was dono by some ol tho subordl
nstes and not by himself; I old not agree to go; 1 said
$160 was a small sum to leave the country with.
By Mr. Conger?How much did you want ? A. Well,
I told tbem that two of Morey'a notes bad not been
Q. Tell us all you ssid about It? A. Well, I said If
tbey would pay Morey a notes amounting to $300 and
give me $500 more 1 would go sway to Montreal.
ij. Would yon have done so* a. Yes, sir.
Q. Why didu't you? A. They were willing to try to
obtain tho $600 lor me. i>ot would not pay the notes,
and Souer kept trying to bluff me, ssying if I testified I
would gel into tbo I'euiieutisry and 1 finally would not
have anything more to do with him. Witness ssid he
knew he could not testily betore the committee without
laying himself liable tu pros?-tuiioii aasoon u? he lelt tlie
committee room, unless immunity was granted to him,
and unit** It should be granted he expected ho would
be taken to Loulaiaua acd prosecuted.
Ho was asked to give the particulars of some of the
criminal transactions, without giving any names, but
he declined to do so.
Mr. Blackburn then renewed his motion, made yes
terday, that the chairman be instructed to apply to
the Attorney General lor Immunity for tho witness.
In reply to cross questions the witness said he made
a statement of the principal points against Morcy over
a year ago and showed It to several persons, and that
waa one of the papers he sold to Morey, but be kept a
rough copy ol It for self protection.
The Committee on Expenditures In the War Depart- I
ment to-day resumed their Inquiry Into the matter of j
the Kentucky Central Railroad claim. General W. H. t
Dunn, Judge Advocate General of the Army, testified ,
that during the years 1870 and 1871, while Assistant j
Judge Advocate General, he was on duty as Isw officer
of the War Department, and In tho fall of 1870 this
claim was referred to him by tho Secretary of War Is
the ordinary course of business for examination sad
report. The papers remained in his office from sous
time In November until the next liar, and received s
very careful and thorough examination at his hand*
As the result of this examination he was clearly satis
fied that It was a just claim, and, therefore, be made ?
favorable report, which, being approved by tho Secre
tary tf Wur and afterward by the Third Auditor and
Second Comptroller of the Treasury, procured Its pay
ment. No effort was ever made in any quarter to In
fluence his Judgment.
In response to lurtber questions General Dunn pre
sented the following as tho chief points or Ins reports
on the claim, showing the conslUeruiio.iii wlucii con
trolled his action, and bringing out bouio lacts regard
ing Its history that have not hitherto been published:?
Tint?Tho Kentucky Central Railroad Company wus
entitled, under the constitution, to just compensation
for services rendered the government, and whnt was
Just compensation was not a matter to be determined
arbitrarily by the Quartermaster (jenorul or any oue
Second?Tho military rates, so called, imposed upon
said compauy against its protest were not just compea
! satiou tor the services rendered.
! ?Tbo rules ot compensation asked for and
| Oolj^Bklowcd wore no more than just compensation
i for t^^Tervlco.
Fourth?The payments made to the company by the
Quartermaster's Department, having been received
; under protest that they were not all the company was
; entitled to receive, in no manner coucluded the com
! pany agaiust demanding further payment, and tho
Quartermaster General erred in holding itie company
I concluded by tho acceptance of such partial paymeut
' and lu representlbg to tlio Secretary ot War that ths
services were paidjor and settled.
Fifth Tho Quartermaster General recommended that
the rates asked lor by the company (ninety per cent ol
its regular tariff) bo paid lor services alter August 1,
1864. which recommendation was approved. The
reasons given lor that recommendation apply moro
forcibly lor tlie time such rates were refused than lor
tho time they were allowed.
Sixth April 1&, 1804, tho recommendation ol tho
Quartermaster General that this claim be rejected was
upproved in this lorm:?"By ordor of the Secretary of
War, C. H. Dana, Assistant Secretary of War." Ins
lew days iberealter, on the application ol Mr. Magraw,
then tho attorney in tho case, the Secretary ol War,
under his own hand, ordered Uie Quartermaster Gen
eral to call on Colonel Swords, the Assisiunl Quarter
; master General, on duly iu Cincinnati, lor a report on
I the case as then presented. Colonel Swords mado
such a report, showing fully that tho payments for
transportation made to the railroad company had
been received unJer protest, and upon tho asfcuranco
of tho Quartermaster making tho puyments
that the company, by recoivlng such pay
ments, would not bo debarred Irom asserting its
I claim to ninety pe.* cent on lis regular tariff rales. Sub
! sequeniiy Mr. Stanton verbally, as stated by' lbs
i solicitor of tho War Department, Hon. W illiam Whlt
| inir, and also under his owu hand, as appears by tbo
! record, referred tho report ot Colonel Swords, through
! the Quartermaster General's Department, to Solicitor
Whiting lor s report. All ihese references took
! place after the time it Is slated that
the claim was rejected by the War Dspart
! ment, and certainly negative tho Idea that Sec
i retary Stanton considered tbo claim rejected. Tho
last relerence was seven months afterward. The ref
erence ol this report or Colonel Swords Is the
i u*i official act ol Secretary Stanton ol record in re
1 sard to this claim, and excepting a report by Solicitor
Whiting that the claim was still open for seulomcnt,
no further action appears to have been taken regarding
It until the year 1870. .
Sevenths-i'u? National Railroad Convention which
was held In Washington on February 'JO, 1862, on
whoso recommendation the so-called military rates
wers adopted, phased ibo following resolution:?
Keftolvrd, That It li tlie op nlon of this Convention that
tba KacretaJy or War should make such compensation as
will be equitable to liitwe road* whose expenses are eu
baneed by reason of their being In or near the seal of war.
In pursuance or this resolution the Quartermaster
General under authority of the Secretary of War al
lowed to the Baltimore and Ohio, tbo Louisville and
Nashville, the North Missouri and the St. l.ouis ana
' Iron Mountain railroad companies more ibun tho
! military rales lor the transportation or army supplies.
! The Kentucky Central was entitled to b? placed in tbo
' same category as those roads, the same reasons that
I justified the payment ol higher than the military rates
to tboae roads obtaining with equal force in the case
ol tne Kentucky Central.
Quartermaster General Molgs, who wss presont, was
asked by Mr. Clymer whether ho desired to ssy sny.
thing in regard to the testimony of General Dunn. He
replied that be did not think It necessary to do so, as
bis official action conoernlng the matter waa fully set
i forth In tho record.
Committee on r*r>??Jitar?s In the Department
ot *ottlc? this morning resumed the examination of
John I. Davenport, who produced tho law showing bis
authority lor receiving pay for Indexing his books. In
the index books there are, including names, nearly
8,000,000 words, and witness claimod for these words
the sum allowed by law. This Index waa simply a copy
of the remstrstlon lists, alphabetically arranged, in
all his charges for this Index tbo witness never made a
charge not warranted by law. Tho Indexing he con
| celved to bos necessity; the indexing diminished the
| labor of the office vory materially. In roply to Mr.
Mesde, the witness said that prior to 1871 ho was s
member ol a law firm in New York. The first work ho
did alter the dissolution ol the Isw firm waa to Ukes
copy or the censua
Question?Where did you get that copy of the cen
sus; lor, ss I understand it, tho census wss oot then
Witness could not answer that question ss put, un
less ho were permitted to mske an explanation. Some
charges had been made against him of wrongdoing In
ecnneciion with that census, and he would uot answer
unless he could explsin It He waa willing to ssy. bow
ever, that he obtained the copy of tbo census from
Marshal Sharps.
After some discussion by the committee he wss per
mttted to explain that he made bis compilation In s
room ol the United States Court Houso, and when he
ssld he obtained the papers from Ibo United stale*
Marshal no meant only so far as his clerks were per
milled to handle them, liis compilation was not
made from tho regular June census, bnt Irom s census
taken In October on account ol a feeling that the Juno
cen-us waa iscorrect.
Witness was examined at somo length In relation to
his compilation, tho manner of doing, Be., bnt no new
facts were elicited.
The House to-day, by a parly vote, directed tho
Speaker to certify to the proper authorities or the Dis
trict of Columbia the testimony takou relating to the

The revival of this sterling comedy >1 Wallaek's last
i night la likely to awake only one regret amoog tne
' theatre going public?namely, that It had not been re
i vived earlier in the season. It Is so long ago since this
I fine piece of handiwork by Mr. Boucieault has been
j seen on a New York stags that It comes to as almost
i as a novelty, and to thousands ol New Yorkers
it will prove entirely new. It has ths great
merit of being a thorough comedy with a plot of tex
ture Just strong enongh to sustain interest in the story
and shining most In Its effective contrast of character
and sparkling dialogue. The scene Is laid in England,
whose chalk cliffs are constantly visible la a fine ma
rine view. There are two love stories in it and
it Is hard to say which should give the
play its title, for "she" certainly loves "him" In both
cases to an alarming extent. We suppose, however,
by the rule ot contraries that the love which it is hard
est to bring to the lips is that for which the author
names the piece. This is the case with Mrs. Tom Vacil
(Miss Dyas) and Mr. Tom Vacil (Mr. Wallack). They
have been divorced on a trumped up case, in which
the husband, playing tho Jealous monster, has fallen
into bis own trap, securing himself a lite of
woebegone endeavor to win back Mrs. Tom. To that
end be lelgns sickness and goes to reside in a
soasido sanatorium, so as to be near his
late wife, who is residing In the adjoin ng villa of Sir
Richard English. This wealthy oid knight (Mr. Gil
bert), a returned Kast Indian, has made a distant
relative, Miss AUIanta Cruiser (Miss Effle Germon)
his heiress, and she is in love with Dick Hartley, a
young fellow of no moan* but unlimited afloctiou, and
| possessing a family wrong. Of course, Mr. Montague
! plays this part. Very soon Dick Hartley dlscorers
j that old Sir Richard Is his lather?that lather who de
I serted Dick's mother on a strong and apparently
' well-founded suspicion of Infidelity, before Dick
, was born. These are tbo main difficulties which the
dramatist sots out to smooth aw.iy. This is accom
plished alter iillordltig Mr. Gilbert several oppor
| tunities to display testiness, pathos and alfection and
I giving Mr. Montague a cliauco to exhibit filial love, de
I dunce of poverty and touchiuglorgiveness of bis father.
; The Instrument ol the eclairciuement between father
' and son is a blooming, professional paupor, L-idy
? Seltna Railletickei, who is always celliug chances
| in a rutlle for a widow or the daughter
; of a clergyman. In the case ol Mr.
t Tom Vacil und his wife it requires a feigned attack of a
| fatal disorder and four comical consulting physicians
to let litem triumph over all their obstacles, among
| which Is an odor or marriage to Mrs. Vacil from a cer
j tuiu boobyish Captain Yawley. They are reconciled at
| lust In a scene lull ot humor.
{ The plot, as will be aeen, deals very sparingly in
i mystery, leaving tho mind lull play lor appreciating
| the llow of Jest, repartee und epigram as dcliverod by
| the clearly i.eflned personalities indicated above. Tho
i play abounds in effective situations, and Mr.
; Wallies, iu resuming this character of the
| fond, stuttering husband, lays New York under a fresh
| obligation. It is needless to say that Mr. Monuguo
plays the lover admirably, and that Mr. Gilbert is tilted
lik? a glove by the grouty but whole-hearted Sir
Richard. Mr. Ileckettaa Diogenes, the affectionately mi
i pudent Irish sorvaut, redolent of Charley O'Malley
I and Jack Hinton, convuisos the audience, and Mr.
I Floyd plays the unit headed Yawley with a keen
sense ol its ludicrous side. Tho Atalanta of Miss Ger*
mou is one of her best parte, and tho little dialogue
with her heart was as prettily given as it was prettily
conceived by the author. Miss Dyas has not the best
opportunity to display her powers, but she played with
case and skill; while lime, l'onisi, who first ap
Eoars in the third act, gave a roundness to
er perlormance of tho lady living on her wits that ?
redeemed it trom some of its unlovable traits. Her
surprise at the discovery of a throb in hor heart and a
tear in her eye was delicious. All tho minor parts wero
well tilled, and as It Is a- ilttlo wearisome to praise
everything, wo would remark that the only thing In
the comedy any one is likely to carp at is tho
occasional broadness of some of tho allusions and
slightly blue eiroct ot some of the syncopations I
and elongations of words in the course of Tom
Vacil's stuttcrlngs. They may be excusable because
they were apparently enjoyed, and tbo samo may be
said of the numerous hearty osculations betwoen Diclc
Hartley and Atalanta Cruiser iu the first aot.
*'How She Loves Him" will probably run to the end
of the regular season?that is, until the 27th Inst. The
house lay night was crowded.
Last night M. Emllo Anjier's nsw piece, "Madame
Caverlet," was produced at this theatre for the Urat
time in America. It waa originally played at the
Vaudeville Theatre, in Paris, where it la said to have
been very successful. The plot is a remarkably simple
one. An ill-assorted couple have, some fifteen years
before the opening of the play, been divorced a meutd
et More. Both husband and wife being French, this dl
| TO roe acts only as a Judicial separation, and doea not
j permit either to remarry daring I tie lifetime of the
! other. As represented in tho piece, the husband has
; been alone to blame, and the wife, as long as she pos
( sibiy could, had condoned his dissolute behavior. After
< their .separation the wife retires to live with a
I wealthy aunt In the country, and she takes
' with her her two young ohildren?a boy
'? and a girl. While living here she meets and falls des
i perately In love with H. Caverlet, who takes her to
{ Switzerland and there livos with her as her husband.
? Meantimo the children grow up under the belief that
' their ffcther was an Englishman, and that, conse
i qnently, M. Caverlet Is really the husband of their
i mother.
j It is at this period that the play opens. The rich
' aunt has lor a long time refused to see her erring niece;
! but shortly belore her death she has made a will leav
I Ing all her property to her. The husband, hearing of
| this, and desirous of gaining possesion of tho property,
hasten* to ilnd his wife, and offers to take her back.
I The wife, still ignorant of her aunt's death, indig
nantly relaxes, whereupon no threatens to take away
j her children, as she, being the mistress of another man,
? is no proper person to educate them. These dilflculiies
! are solved by a payment to the busbaud, who agrees to
change bis domicile to Switzerland, wliero marriage
with a divorced person Is lawful.
The principal elements of sucncss in this plot are the
numerous very strong dramatic situations with which
the pleee abounds. The semes between tho husbaud
and his aon and afterward with his wife are worked op
with great skill and dramatic force. But the play
should never become a favorite IB this country. The
whole apparent aim of the dramatist is to portrsy a
woman wnu is ill-treuted and separated from her hns
bandanuafterward meets her "affinity." Tho whole
tono of the piece is bad, as It lead* the audience to
: sympathise with this woman, who, no matter what ill
treatment she may have suffered or what tempta
tions Kbe may have beeu exposed to, should
never have forgotten that the was htlll a wife and a
mother. To ask us to sympstblze with each weakness
and want of character is one of tbe worst things a
i drsmatist can attempt. The piece was admirably acted
throughout. M. Vtnist, for whose beneilt the per
formance was given, undertook thertMc of Henri Mer

To tub Editor or tub Hbbald:?
form it me. tbrougb the medium of your valuable
columns, to express, not only my opinion, but tbe
opinion ot numerous others, who are both patrons and
lovers of opera. In regard to the ridiculous suteinenta
made by Manrice Strakosch in his interview with your
reporter on Sunday last First, as regards tbe Belocca
aea?on, you have already explained tbe cauae ol its I
utter failure in tne able editorial which appeared la
your issue of May 1, therelore it would be superlluou*
for me to slate anything further on this subject; one
thing, however, is certain, that tbe Amcricac public
are not going to be humbugged any longer by
Maurice Strakosch's bombaanc pronunciation toes and
statements to tho effect that as Belocca has been pro
nounced a perfect artiste by the European critics, tbe
American public Is without doubt or question to accept
her as such. This is a positive insult to our taste and
good Judgment, and Maurico Strakosch bus yot to learn
that the Burnutulsm hu played successfully on us
twenty-Ave years ago will not bear repetition, as the
Belocca few nights' season has demonstrated
beyond a doubt. It appears to mo tbat Mr.
Strakosch thinks that ho alone has wisdom and
power of discriminating Judgment. Such men when
they are known are generally found to be wanting. But
let M. Strakosch know tbat It is no dlsgraco even for
tbe high priest of opera to learn and not obstinately re
slst tbe ronvlction tbat tho American public will either
have Italian opera properly retidoreil or nothing. If he
thinks to throw dust In their eyes by attempting to
underrate the talents of such great artists as Titlens
and Trebclll and advocating tho wonderful but Imper
ceptible merits of M me. de Belocca he Is greatly mis
taken. M. Slrakosch's conversation with your re

In the Munn whiskey trial to-day, after a number
of witnesses had been called, Jacob Rehm was called
for the prosecution. Up to this point tho testi

Implicate Munn, directly, as to show that
large sums of money had been paid to
Rohm, who turned them over to others; Rehm testi

[From the London Sportsman, May 2.]
May Day, 1X70, will henceforth be colebrated la tlx
annals of the road aa the occasion of the revival of tha
public stage coach between Oxford and London. Ia
the good old time*, when the four bono coach waa
almost the only means of public conveyance, Oxford
was as well served In that respect is any city la th?
kingdom; but slnco the I'rioce of Wales, which used ta
Ftart from the Vine Inn of that city, ceased to ruu
nearly twenty-one years mo, the University on th?
Isia haa not posaesacd a poblio stage coach In conneo
tion with (he metropolis. When, therefore, It became
known that the present coach would start on IU tlrat
Journey to London from the Clarendon Hotel yesterday
morning there was great Jov in Oxford, and when al
last the coach was actually drawn up outside the dool
ol the hotel a considerable crowd gathered to wltnesi
Its departure and to express good wlshci
lor the success of th? undertaking. Since
the revival of. coaching the lougest Journeys
attempted have been thoso to Brighton and
Tunbrldge Wells; but mat to Oxlord considerably ex
ceeds either of those In distance, being, Indeed, by far
the longest metropolitan stage coach route at preaent
existing. Although the Journey between Oxford and
London is continuous, It is, an a matter of fact, di
vided into two distinct portions?namely, the journey
from Oxlord to Reading and that from Heading to the
White Horse Cellars in I'lccadlily. The tlrst portion of
the distance hurt been undertaken by Mr. Mansel Man*
sel, a gentleman new to public stage coaching; tha
second or metropolitan division being worked by Mr.
Carlton Victor Blytb, the popular whip who had tha
road between Windsor and Heading last year. Thesa
two gentlemen have entered Into a partnership by
which they agree to keep the coach ou tha road till tha
end of July under any circumstances, and, in the event
ol the experiment proving successful, to continue to
the clone of the coaching reason. A curious item ol
thla agreement contalna a provision that In the event
of the Oxford coach arriving in Heading after tba
advertised time Mr. Maaacl Hansel agrees to provida
the passengers with a champagne luncheon Irea
of charge and also to post them on to London at
his own expense. The first portion ol the route la
divided into three stages, and Is worked by fifteen
horses?four for each stage and throe sparo horses.
This very handsome lot have been collected by Mr.
John Hetheringlon, of Edgeware road. The coach la
the same as that used on the Guildford road last year.
For the aecond portion of the Journey Mr. Blyth baa
a magnillcont new coach, built by Measrs. Holland It
Holland. It la, In ligbtuesa, strength and general ex
cellence, the very model of what a atage coach should
be. Like that used In the earllor stages, it Is painted
black, with yellow panela and under-oarrlage. Tba
Journey botween Heading and the Cellars la divided
Into Ova stages, aud Is served by nearly thirty horses,
collected for Mr. Blyth by Mr. Williams. Tba coach
leavea Oxford on alternate daya?namely, Monday,
Wednesday and Friday?and returns from London oa
Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday. Having thus far
put my readers lu possession of the material facta of
the new venture, I will ondeavor shortly to desoriha
the Journey.
Tbe weather In Oxfordshire and Dorksblre on Sun.
day last was most unpromlsiug. There waa a bitter
cold wind, accompanied with torrents of raiu, causing
considerablo depression ot spirits among those who
had determined to uudertako thla lengthened Journey
on top of a coach. When, therefore, Monday morning
arrived with a leaden sky and a keen blast, all that
could ba said waa that the Weather abowed a trifling
improvement on that of tba previous day. Hy tea
o'clock In tho morning, tbe time appointed for tha
atart, the aky began to brighten, the alate-colored
cloud dlaplayed rifts of blue, and here and there a wa
tery sunbeam snuggled to light up the streets in
momeutary laughter. The eager und good-humored
crowd which stood about tho doorway aud within the
vestibule ol the Clarendon Hotel, lo watch tbe match
less team of room which were to convey us on our
Journoy, mailo us all sorts of promises ol line weather
aa we mounted into our places; and when, aa the clock
struck ten, Mr. Mansel gave tno word to let go tbe lead
ers' heads, we started with us light hearts aB if the sky
had been of unclouded blue. The horn rang out
morrlly with old '-Tuuilvy ;" the roans, a grand team,
costing over GOO guineas, took tha collar with a will,
and amid cheers and good wishes wo rattled down "tba
High" piist Magdalen College over Mugduieu Brldga
toward Naneham. Out of the city the weather began
to brighten, the wind dropped, and away we cantered,
as jolly u party as ever sal behind four horses. On wa
I went, leaving homestoads and lat tlelds behind us,
! through picturesque Nunehum, all be poplared by tha
! roadside until we came to our tlrst change at Dorcbea*
: ter. Thence wo went gayly along over .Shllllnglord
Bridge, with Its placid river scenery, through Walling,
j lord und Moulslord?ever as we went tbe great arch ol
' sky above our heads growing bluer and bluer In front
1 of us. Behind tbe rain clouds eame acuddmg In oui
j wake, bat wo outsjied the rain, and ao passed With
I laughter und light beartsto our seooud change st Slreafe
! ley. From Htreatley toTangbourue we gal a splendid
variety of landscape views. Wide, open Held!
and waving woods; tall banka ot greenery
aud charming bita of broken ground, and
through all tho ailont, speeding Thames
wind.-aud glistens at our feet. 1 am luaenslbly re
miuded ol Turner's great picture of "Rail, Road and
' River." At our right tbo railway rana cloae to tba
i road along which we travel, and by the aide of tba
road?the whole within a distance of lltty feet?flowg
tbe glorious old river. Mr. Manacl liandlea tbe rib
bons with excellent skill, and tooia ua gayly through
Pangbourne, that paradise ol fishermen, along tbo drag
roau into Reading, reaching the Queen's Hotel at tba
very moment of bis appointed time. At Reading,
whero we arrive at half-pa^ l one, wa have half an hour
for luncheon. 1 cannot take leave of Mr. Mansel with
out expressing my senso of his courtesy aud klndnesa:
and I cun promise any of my renders who may travel
on tbe coach between Oxford und Reading that they
will be under the care of a skilled whip and a moat
j pleasant companion.
To seo the vust crowd of people in tba atreeta of
! Heading ?no mlgbt have thought that royalty, and not
, a stage coach, was making its progresa tbrougn tba
1 town. The roads were blocked with s warms of friendlly
sightseers. They lcaued out of windows and stood ia
doorways; they filled the road and made a ring round
the coach; and as we started to leave gave us a good
ringing cheer, Just as II we wore darlug explorers bent
on toinc dangerous expedition instead of a coach load
of holiday mskers bound on a pleasure trip. Tho en
thusiasm ranged through all classes; the very aoldlera
made the salute as we passed. I had this picture in
my mind's eyo when I first described Mr. Blyth aa
I being popular. Popular bo la at Reading, without
doubt; uotonlv, as I hear, becaune tbe good people ol
! that town arc lond of coaching?aa all good people must
| be?but also because ne Is a man of a generous heart
' and a liberal band. Mr. Blyth la a perfect enthusiast
1 in coaching. He has a dial aet In the footboard close ta
' his feet, und by this dial he swear*. By that I do not
i mean that tbe gentleman Is guilty of expletives, but that
I ha keepa his time (o the minute; and when, hours after
; our starting out ol Roadlng; we were passing tbrough
Hammersmith, 1 could dot doubt him when he told ma
in tbe inoal serious tone that be would rather go with
i out hla dinner than ba a minute late at Hatcbeti'h
Generoua, boisterous, cosch-loving Mr. Blyth need
have no fear; be never will bo a minute lata?men ol
! his stamp never are. Led away by tbe paaaing recob
lection of Mr. Blyth's punctuality. 1 have atopped la
my description of tho journey., and I may, therefore,
take tbla opportunity to mention that Mr. Blyth'a pro
fessional coachmsn is the well known hdwln Fown*a,
who served Colonel Kane with lha Virginia Watel
coach last season. Soon after leaving Reading wo wera
overtaken by a smart shower, but tbo weather cleared
up alinust before we reached Twyford, and we wera
< once moro under tbo blue when wa paused tor oar
I first change at Haro Hatch, where wa harneaaad to tba
I coach a capital pair ol wheelers and two magnlOcent
I bay leaders. Apropos of methodical Mr. Blytb. LtM
tbe late Major Wiilnngton, be baa every horse named,
and, like that gentleman, ha has cbosen tha Initial ol
' bis own surname as tha initial of every horse la
hla stables; thus one team consisted of Butcher,
I Baker, Barbara and Banker, and ao with every one u
the twenty horsei used in the five stages to town. From
j Hare Hatch our road Ilea through knowl Hill to Maiden
bead, where wo hall at the Rear, and ao drlvo along
over the bridge past Sklndle's. and by the oA-descrtbei
route through slough, Colnbrook, to Longford, whert
i we once more change, and ibenoe through rtounslow ta
; our tiaal changing place, the Coach and Horses al
I Brentford, arriving In Iront of tbe crowd al Haieheu'l
[ three mlnuiea before our time. On tha whole we ha4
I enjoyed a moat successful and pleasant Journey, par
ticularly remarkable becauae, sa I have already stated,
: It Is tbe longest distance travelled by any public aiag<
coach in tho neighborhood of I<ondon since the rail
ways drove the coaches olT tbe road. We bad many
changes of paaaengers between Oxford and London, tba
only two men wbe travelled the entlro Journey, laating
Irom wn in lha morning until half peat all In ibe even
