EEASTIALITY.
Inaugurating the French Bal d'Opera in New
York.
Disgraceful Seem Bawds and Bullies in
Carnival and Riot.
From the New orld of the 24th.
The dancing cimmenced at 11
o'clock. At that time the floor, ex
tending from the edge of the dress
circle to tbeextr 'ine limitof the stage,
presented a curious bbmImh.
Probably there were a hundred
masked women present, among five
hundred masked and unmarked men.
Thte women were ilre--ed in fancy
costume-, nearly all .selected with a
view to expose as much of the person
as possible. By far the greater
number wot trunk hose and flesh
ings; but many were attired in the
short skirt of the ballet, with some
give a horrible color to the figure that
li led out.
There is an evident fear on the part
of the ball oflVials that matters will
proceed too far. They endeavor to
prevent the women from being nulled
! into the boxes by laying hold of them
anc pulling tnem back, in wnien
struggle the women are curiously
wrenched and disordered, and the
men in the boxes curse and laugh and
shout, and the dancers, now accus
tomed to the spectacle, ive it no heed
whatever.
li there is anything in the behavior
of a woman that is at all peculiar to
the eye ot the observer who is not fa
miliar with tbe impulses and the
manifestations of them in this class, it
is the feverish abandonment into
which drinks and other excitements
have driven them. It is not often
that a common bawd, without brains
or beauty enough to attract a passing
glance, thus has the opportunity to
elicit volleys of applause from crowds
of men: and. without stopping to
WASHINGTON MATTERS.
VIRGINIA AND TENNESSEE.
There is a good deal of talk in po
litical circles in Washington concern
ing the course of Congress when it re
assembles, in reference to Virginia
and Tennessee. There is no doubt
that the temper of Congress has great
ly changed since it first met, and that
the ultra element, which was then si
lent, is now becoming every day
more rampant and aggressive. Meas
ures which would then have been dis
missed as impossible or absurd are
now spoken of as every way probable.
This is especially the cae in respect to
Tennessee. Leading Democrats ex-
the vacancy on the Supreme bench
occasioned by the death of Mr. Stan
ton, there is a growing impression
that the vacancy will be given to
Judge Strong, of Pennsylvania. It
is also stated that there is a new can
didate for the vacancy on the bench
occasioned by Mr. Stanton's death.
This candidate is no other than the
Hon. David K. Carttcr, now Judge of
the Supreme Court for this district.
J udge Cartter is believed to have had
some aspirations of this nature at the
time of the impeachment trial, and
had then a sure thing of it, in case
Mr. Wade came into the Presidential
office. The failure of the impeach
ment put an end to this business for a
time. Cartter is a very keen Radical
politician, and is backed by very
strong influence. His most active

The boxes below were all taken up,

that there has been a great deal ol
stud v and consultation among the Re
publicans In Congress touching the
case ol Tennessee, and that the lead
ers are maturing a plan for a fresh
subjugation of that Stte. The mode
of doing this is not yet known, or
even agreed upon ; kbut that they will
find a way, if they decide upon find
ing one, is not doubtfui. The pretexts
assigned for this are that the last elec
tion was fraudulent; that the registra
tion under Governor Senter admitted
many whites to vote who were dis
franchised by the laws of the State for
recklessness, reigning for the few brief j participation in the rebellion; and,
hours over the besotted men who feel
a fiend's satisfaction in the unnatural
exhibition.
To particularize to any great extent
would be to make public the habits
and manner of the vilest prostitut--in
their proper haunts, where, out of
the glare ctf publicity, ttiey may, ami
lie peace itself. They were crowded
in : some of them stood up and smoked
cigars; all of them kept their hats on ; j

Republican form of government.
Leading Republicans in both branches
are strongly opposed to this policy,
but it is not now known whether
enough of them will stand out to de
feat these measures. The talk among
the ultra Radicals is to hold Virginia
back tor the present and not to admit
her until her political course is more
clearly defined. The recommendation
of the" President makes it difficult for
the Radicals to act in this case as they
would like to do.
The correspondent of the Baltimore
Gazette, referring to the proposed
usurpation in 'lenuessee, says: "1
have this moment received reliable
information that Tennessee (and any
other of the States lately engaged "in
rebellion" which shall rebel against
the Radical ticket) will be treated
precisely after the Georgia fashion.

Rut it is safe to say the unsuspecting
were few indeed.
At o'clock this curious spectacle
was at its height. All about the insti
tute, and ou ihe stairs, and in the cloak
rooms, and through the narrow, tortu
ous passages leading to the stage
dressing rooms were vile tableaux ol
inflamed wom?n and tipsy men,

Enough liquor has now been uwal

high wter mark. There is another
fight going on in the vestibule. One

the crowd and tossej bodily into the
proscenium box, where she is caught

the Policy of
From the New York World. December 29
It having leen prominently set
forth in the Washington correspond-'
ence .f a Xew York journal on Mon
day, tirst, that the administration was j
disposed to recognize the belligerent ,
rights of the Cuban insurgents; and,
second, that Secretary Fish and Sena- j
tor Sumner had expressed, within
three days past, views that indicated j
such a changing policy, I have been
at some tains to ascertain what now
appears to be the fact: that there is no
foundation whatever for those reports.
Mr. Fish, in conversation with a i
member of the diplomatic corps yes-
terday, gave him to understand, not I
only that there had been no change of
policy by the administration, but that
the Cubans are farther from being ;
recognized by the Government as
belligerents than they were eight days ;
ago. As for lr. Sumner, a corre- j
pondest of the World called on him
to-day expressly to inquire whether :
his views and intentions had been N
suddenly altered. Mr. Sumner said j
the report was false. " It M the
whisper j first time," said he, " that 1 had heard

ranco, uud the previous
recognition of the L nited Mates by
fr'ranvce during their original struggle
for liU-rty being suggested as loreiga

'But we have prouMu.ti against the

the subject. Nor fa it dropped now.

shally and honeyed terms in which
opposition to the current enormities
are couched iu Congress. Democratic
Senators and Representatives sit iu
their seats by sufferance, as it were,
and seem to accept as a favor the priv
ilege of uttering a syllable of quaiitltd
dissent. Better, indeed, would it be
to decline to open their mouths bet
ter upon all such questions not even
to vote! Protest!
The Knoxville Whig of Friday says
it heard through a private source,
but reliable, we think, a bit of infor
mation concerning the doom of Ten
nessee, which fa not so bad after all.
It has been surmised by a good many
that Congress would interfere with our
j State affairs, and knock everything
. into i. A prominent gentleman, we
are to rev. ciu luinvictt

emobntie in uveriug that neither he
nor Congress had any intention of
disturbing our relations. In the paocee
of the conversation he remarked that
there was a very marked difference
between Georgia aud l'eunesaee that
the former had not complied with its
obligations aad the requirements of
the laws of Congress, while the latter
had already been reconstructed and
received into the family.. We thank
our President for this crumb of com
fort. Hop it may be true, though we
do not vouch tor it.
MISSISSIPPI.
As Mississippi has gone Radical in
all branches, she will be promptly ad
mitted and her State government
recognized. The official result of the
election, as proclaimed through the
military commander, will reach
Washington next week, so that it can
be submitted to Congress when it re
assembles. In the me sntime, Satrap
Ames will convene the Legi-l.it ore
for the purpose of fulfilling the Con
gressional requirement by ratifying
the Fifteenth Amendment and elect
ing Senators. After this is done, the
admission of Senators and Representa
tives by Congress is all that is neces
sary to completely restore the State,
under the Radical regime, to the
Uniog.
It is said that Gen. Dent, the lately
defeated candidate for Governor in
Mississippi, speaks very highly ol
Gen. Alcorn, his successful competi
tor. The object of Alcorn's ambition
fa said to be the Senate, and it is
probable that he can be elected. Gen.
Ames, the military commander of
Mississippi, is also a candidate for the
United States Senate, and wold lie
preferred by the President, as more
completely devoted to his iuterests.
Gen. Ah'orn hus paid great attention
to the subject of the levees iu Missis
sippi, and it he comes to Washington
wilt make thfa mutter a specialty.
TEXAS, j
As Texas hfriiot elected a Radical
Legislature, the plan i
publican by the application of the
iron-ctad test oath section; and recon
struction will therefor? be put in the
fon-ground of the Congreouai pro
gramme. The ultras are gaining
ground every day, an. 1 it is obvious
that if these eai patrol Congress no
State government at the Souih will be
allowed to stand that is not iu the
bauds of the Radicals.
that Ohio has already two Supreme
Court Judges, Messrs. Chase and
Swayne.
It is said that there is not the
slightest chance that Judge Hoar will
be more favorably dealt with when
the Senate convenes again. The Re-
I publican opposition to him is not of a
! nature to be conciliated, and though
I some prominent Democrats would like
; the opposition to him to be with
; drawn, it is believed that the Demo
; cratic Senators cannot be induced to
j change their votes so as to confirm
him. They are at present able to con
firm and reject him, holding the bal-
anco of power between the two Re
: publican wings.
SK17.1 RE OF TOBACCO IX THE IXDIA
RESERVATION.
The recent seizure of a tobacco
; manufactory in tho Indian Reserva
; lion, near the Arkansas State line, by
j order of .Supervisor McDonald, for
evading the revenue laws, raises some
very nice questions for the lawyers.
Under the treatis made with the In
dian tribes, those territories are, in
; general terms, exempt from taxation,
I though the products of the various
I industries of the ludian Reservation
are subject to the same taxation as is
! imposed where collection districts ex
ist, when they find their way into the
; markets within the borders-of any
; State. The 10 th section of the act of
J uly 20th, 16tW, says, in effect, that the
revenue laws snail be construed to ex
, tend anywhere Aithin the exterior
boundaries of the United States,
wnetner the same snad De within a
collection district or not. This section,
the Commissioner believes to mean,
that the revenue officers have a right
to go into the ludian Reservations
and aeiae a manufactory wich is being
revenues.
treaties step in
with a clause exempting the products
of their industries from taxation. The
question then arises whether the
treaty-making power is superior to
the legislative power, or whether, in
other words, the Senate has the power
to make a treaty which rises above
the acts of the National Legislature
to the extent of prohibiting the legally
authorized officers of the Government
from enforcing the national laws
witiiin the boundaries of its own ter
ritories. The matter has been sul
uiitted to a competent law officer, but
no conclusion has been reached as yet.

Rigid Neutrality.
New York, December 31. A spec
ial dispatch states that President Orant
is about to issue a proclamation of
rigid neutrality in the dispute now in
lrogress between the colonies of the
Red River country and the Canadian
Government. This proclamation is
aimed both at the sympathisers who
may be disposed to aid the rebels, and
at Gov. McDougall, who seems to im
agine that he can organize an expedi
tion on American soil to regain h
authority over the insurgents. The
Red River country is vie we J in official
circles as a serious impediment to the
scheme of the English Governmeat to
unite all British North America in the
New Confederation, and is not, there
fore, regarded as a matter for regret,
althougli the final success of the rebels
is not counted on.

ECUMENICAL COUNCIL.
Inauguration Address of the Pope and Open
ing Prayer.
The Roman Catholic organs have
m.'t with denials the reports sent over
here, thbt American bishops were
likely to act with the liberal side s.t
Rome. Thus the Freeman'' Journcl
on October, It! said:
"So much dots this coming council
trouble the spirits that oppose the
Catholic Church, that they still use the
Atlantic Telegraph Cable jbr the pro
pagation of transparant falsehoods
about It. One of the latest is that
'tifty American bishops will support
Bisnop Dupanioup iu urging liberal
Ideal on the council.' Prodigious!
Who hits eoaatei these 'tifty Ameri
can bishops'" When did they meet
to agree on what each of the Ufty con
sidered 'liberal ideas?' Must the anti
Cath' !ic secretaries of America swal
low it that tilty of the Catholic bishops
of this country are lor 'liberal' ideas?
Then, for the rest hardly half a
Ooaeu- iiw is it known they are
against lileral' ideas? Who ua
canva-sing their votes? And, again,
have these 'titty' gone to Rome td sit
in a council with their minds made up
what they will do irrespective of the
lights they may receive when the
council has aat, and the Holy Ghost
tho.

i nine's letter if favor of the decree of
I Papal lutallibilty, expressly says:
i "The ultramontane doctrine has
i been almost uuiverwauly" held and
I taught in the Ca'holic Church In the
! United States."
As to the deem of Infallibility, the
same influential journal adds: -There
can be no question that the Holy See
and the great body of bishops, inclu
ding those of France with few excep
tions, hold the doctrine of the papal
infallibility to be 9 certainly revealetr
truth contained in Scripture und tradi
tion, and consequently regard the con
trary opinion as an error which lias
only been for a time tolerated. The

push also, and strike, and sway here

and then the rest go on with the
dancing, between which and the fight

In one of the boxes sits J. Flsk, jr.,

ally iass out o: her power. " It is
the old Ca-tlian pride, or rather stub
bornness," he sjiid, M which induces,
her tocontinne the war of subjugation ;
not mere grted or intereat. You see,"
continued Mr. Sumner, ' Spain was
one of the greatest of empire under ;
Ferdinand and Isabel, Charles V., and
Phillip LL Her power extended all I
over Euroie; in,, America, Germany, ;
the Xetht rland?, Franca, and even
England. That was acknowledged.
Siuoe then it has gradually waned.
One colony or possession after anoter '
has been lost. The memory of what
she once was and her pride in this co
lonial possession, make Spain tena
cious of it." The question being
&irly put, whether Mr. Sumner did
or did net think that this Govern- i
meat ought to interfere in behalf of ,
the insurgent, he replied : " I do not
now think so. I am daily, yes, hourly,
thinking how we can honorably aid
them. The United States Ooveru
ment is constantly using its interest
with the Spanish Government to bring
this war to a close, and I have no
doubt that in a very short tiuu., per
haps within two or three months, ey
erything will be satisfactorily settled?' ;

expressions to-day on Uiw important

will propose to transfer to the United

America lying wei of Fake Superior,
including British Columbia aud all
their possessions on the i'acitic coast,
in consideration of our paying a largo
sum of nioiiisy therefor. That country
with its Winuleg wars, revolutions,
and general discontent of its Inhabi
tants, is giving the British govern
ment gruat anxiety and trouble.
There is a manliest determination on
the part of the inhabitants not to con
nect their fortunes with the New Do
minion of Canada; to atteufct to force
them or govern it as an independent
territory will be an exensive luxury.
There is. therefore, said to be a grow

government to gat rju Qf that trouble
and annoyance, and at the same time
get out of the Alabama claims diffi

to cede to the United States the terri

How this will satisfy the ' monic Society, the instrumental part
now tnis win satisiy tne , ,.ha fiti.,Qi ia in hands ThA
chorut.of course, tist class, Altogether,
ew xork has determined to outstrip
The followino; is a translation of the
Pope's adk jaa to the Council:
Venerable BMhren : What we asked
of God by many supplications and
prayers that we may lie able to in
augurate the Ecumenical Council ap
pointed oy us this has been granted,
to our iroai joy, by the remarkable
ind singular grace of God. Our heart.
therefore, exuits in the Lord, aud is
suffused with inconceivable consola
tion, because oh this most auspicious
anniversary of the festival of the lm-
inaleulate Conception of the Virgin
Mary, Mother of God, you who have
been called to participate iu our solici
tude, have assembled in greater num
bers than formerly in the citadel of
the Catholic religion, and we thor
oughly rejoice in your presence. Now,
venerable brethren, you are assembled
here iu the name of Christ, that with
us you may Uear ttiytin;ony to the
Word of God and Jesus Christ, that
you may teach the way of Uod in
truth to all men with us, and that you
may juOge with us, under the guid-.
ance of the Holy Ghost, of the opposi
tion of science, falsely so-called. For
if ever there was a time when zeal for
the Jjlvine glory and the solvation of
the Lord's flock demanded of us to
surround aud defeud Zion, it is now.
For you see, venerable brethren, with
what violence the old enemy of the
human race has attacked, and arm
attacks the House of God. Under his
huidance that wicked conspiracy of
the impious is widely diffused. Strong
in union, iowerfuI in wealth, protected
by institutions, and wearine- the lib
eral veil of malice, and full
of weakness, it does not cease
its most bitter war against the
sacred Church of Christ. You know
the nature ol that war its power, its
arms, its progress, its councils. You
have continually before our eyes the
trouble and confusion, the grevous
perversion of all right, the various
arts of bold lying and corruption by
which the wholesome bonds of jus
tice, Integrity and authority are loos
ened, the worst passions are inflamed,
the Christian faith rooted out frani
souls, so that the end of God's churoh
might well be feared now, if it were
possible for It to be destroyed by auy
machinations or endeavors of man.
But, as, St. John Chrysostom said,
"nothing Is more powerful than the
church the church is stronger than
heaven itself." "Heaven and earth
shr.il pass away, but my words shall
not pass." What words? "Thou art
Peter, and on this rock I sb,aH build
my church, and the gates of hell shall
not prevail against it."
His Holiness then rising, whilst all
the others knelt down, made the fol
lowing prayer:
We are present, O Lord Holy Ghost
we are present, fettered indeed in
the m.ignitude of sin, but specially as
sembled In Thy name. Come to us
and bo with us, and deign to abide in
our hearts. Teach us what to do,
where to go, and show us what we
should eflect. that with Thy help we
may please Thee In all things. Be
our salvation and the guide of our
judgments, '"w ' ho, alone, with
God the Fat ht . ' . His Son, dost
possess the glorious name, Thou who
lovest th most pefteot eqtilty. suffer
no disturbers of justice i let not igno
rance draw us info the wrong path ;
let no favor warp us, nor regard for
gifts or persons corrupt us, -but bind
us effectually together to Thee, by the
gift of Thy grace alone, that we may
be one in Thee, that we may in noth
ing swerve from the truth; that, as
sembled in Thy name, we may ob
serve In all things Justice and piety j
that here our opinions may in nothing
clash with Thee, and that hereafter
We may obtain the everlasting re
wards of our well doing.
The prelates answered "Amen."
