W. L. HTEWART. FOR CLERK OF CRIMINAL COURT. -At an early hour yesterday morning the Cbancory Courtroom was crowded by cit izens anxious to learn the result of the reat injunction case. Tbe effort of the uamles of Oeinocracy to disturb the re eul verdict of the poopio jroved to be a .'rand fiaaet. The able and learned opin ion oi Uuai.'jeuor .vortrr u. aiineiideil i - 1 w, decided every point 'ie petitioner for the i trope the " iujunetionist -ell as those who stood lini. Mr. Donovan was :ien than he to perform : ir which thev rca-u-Jrd ool, and thrust hi ou into the foreground f the picture, while they remained hid i 'hind the scenes. We give tho opinion f ihe Chancellor in full. posovas vs. JOHNSON. John Donovan, a citizen of Tennessee, i!es thla bill to restrain John Johnson Tom assuming and exercising the func- iom. of Mayor of the city of Memphis, itider the new charter oi tlie city, and al- -es tbat l Lie .tu Johnson is ineligible lo the i (lice by reason of bis not being a itizen ot Ihe United States and the State f Tenneaseo. Upon this bill was issued ii injunction, according to its prayer. Johnson tilea hi answer to said bill. nd now coitus betore the Court and asks 'hat tbe injunction be dissolved. The (Uestion is. shall the injunction be dis- lived and the defendant be permitted to .ssume and exerei-e tbe fnn-tions of Mayor of ihe city of Jte:.iphi? No ijties iionis made aa to the jurisdiction of tbe bancery Court in exercising its restrain ng power in this ease. Conceding ihe iiiriadiciion, shall the power be exer isod? There is no controversy either as to the egality of the election or as to the oer of vptes polled for Johnson; and it is oneeded tbtst he is tbe regularly elected Mayor of the city, provided be Is eligible i the otllce. But it is contended and so charged in .he Ki.i thu! .' :!.- .!, i' :. ! !i!s lection and at the pressnt time, is a ubjeet of Great Britaiu, and not a citizen f the United States and state of Ten nessee. The bill charges substantially those acta, and addresses to the defendant live listinct interrogatories. First, a to when nd where he was born; second, when and it what age he came to America, etc. : hird. whether his fathr was of a native ir of foreign birth, whether he came to his country and was uai nrui. zed. when nd where, etc., and what evidence he defendant) hd of the fact, ana calls upon j ".iiu lo produce the evidence; fourth, : rhether he idefendunt) was ever natura- lized, etc.; fifth, whether or not he ide- i fendanti ever claimed U be a subject of Jreat Rritain, when and where, ec The defendant denies gcucraliy the al legations of the bill as to his ineligibility I ior the odice of Mayor, and that he is a j snbject of Great Britain, aad proceeds to j answer in detail the interrogatories pro pounded by complainants. Ho stales his I age at tbe lime of his lather's iuiruigra- j lion to the United States, wliere he land ed, and w here he has resided since his re moval lo this country; states in response i to third interrogatory that his father was ; a foreigner, and that fce was nsturaliz -d under the act of Congress of lKt2. etc. j I have been thus particular in giving ; the allegations of the bill with the imer j rogations, and the answer of the defend- 1 I ant, that we may s e wheih-r the answer i j is responsive to ihe bill, and whether it ' : denias these allegations. If the answer j j is not responsive to the biii or confesses ana avoids, it does not present such a case ! as will permit the court to dissolve an iu ' junction. I have examined the bill and answer with great care, and think that the answer ; is responsive to the bill, and that the alle- ir:ionsoi tue otil have been denied so lar as the iuest,on of citizenship is in volved, growing out of the naturalization of defendant's rather.

First, that it is not properly authenticated: seror.liy, that It show's upon its facethat ouly one citizen testified as to Johnson's residetice of live years in the United Stales previous lo his natural ization. For the purpose of the dissolution of this injunction. I think the tilmeof this cortiuYsie was not necessary, but It was proper Id be nlod, as it was called for by the dinplainaiir, as he demanded the ex hibition of whatever evidence defendant had of bis father's MllllsiliaHuti. I do Lot think the stcond ohjecii..n well taken. The act of Congress requires ihat the term of reeidenoe, etc., shall he proven by citi zens. It does not specify tie number.but the word is in the plural. Citizens" in the act is used as distinguished from for eigners, and tho act requires that these facts shall be proven by citizens and not by foreigners; besides, the Court tbat per formed this deed was a Court of compe tent jurisdiction, and all the .resumptions am iu its favor as to the validity of its acts. There can be no doubt that up to the 2mh of May. lttia, the defendant (John son) was a citizen of the United States and Stale of Tennessee; that having etni zrateri to this country while a minor with his lather, aud his father having beea nat uralized, by tba act of Congress of lbui', he waa invested with all Ihe rights of cit izenship. The further question arises. Has he divested himself of those ritih.s? 1 ue bill charges that some lime inlN63. defendent claimed the protection of the British Government, aud by tbat means 'orleited all rights as a citiaen he heretofore have acquired. The defendant, in answer to this allega tion, sets forth ihe act that he did. and exhibits the evidence of the same. This ! answer and Ihe exhibit is sjiecinoally called for by the fifth interrogatory of complainant's bill, and is itself respon- i sive to the bill. Bv tbat answer it is j shown that during the pending of tho late I war. defeinlaut went before a Commis sioner of the United States and made oath in substance as to tho date he left Ireland, 'tie uate or nis birth, and the dale he , landed in the 1 nited Stales, and tbat he had i ever declared his intentions fo be come a citizen of the United States, and i had not toresworn his a'legianco to Great j Britain, never voted at anv general or ! State election in the United Mates, nor . done anything to render him liable as a citizen thereof. This is the mi!. stance of said affidavit. Tbe defendant has given at length his reasons for making this affi davit in bis answer, w hich are not neces sary to be mentioned in this opinion. The view that I have taken or this branch of the case make it unimportant as to what the motives of tbedefendaut might have been.

Having been elected to said office both before and since the late war, I trust my experience in the same has served to Qualify ssa (or an efficient discharge of tho , duties thereof.

A right lively set-to was had last night, about half-past eleven o'clock, al the fruit store on the northeast corner of Jefferson and Second streets. 'The mill was between a man and his wife, the spar ring of the latter attracting universal ad miration from the spectators. As "time" was called for tbe fourth round, some one shouted. " Here comes the p'lice!" and thus broke up what would otherwise have proved a right nice little battle. Three negroes engaged iu a triangular brickbat duel yesterday on Main street, between Gayoso and Beal. By one of those accidents not provided against by Midshipman Easy in his three-cornerrd code, two out of the three missiles struck one of the combatants, and he went down. The other two then went of', aud would have went up, but for the opportune ab sence of the police. In the proper column w ill bo found tbo announcement of M. D. L. Stewart, Fsq., as a candidate (.subject to the action of tbe Democratic Convention) for the position of Clerk to the First Circuit Court. The claims of Mr, Stewart upon the Democracy of Shelby county are strong indeed. He has been, to the certain persoual knowledge of this writer, a firm and unswerving nay, able and untiring advocate ot the great principles of De mocracy for fifteen years past, never for once forgetting or neglecting bis allegi ance, and it would be as little as the party could do now to acknowledge, in a fitting manner, its great indebtedness to him, its life-long champion. . a p.m ...5 p.m ..

Be it enacted, That it sh ail be the duty of all Clerks, Sheriffs, and other court officers, to make, or cause to le made, publications of all notices of a l gal character in the newapaperpublished i:i t he county whore such shall be ordered having the largest circulation in iiuid county, and where there is no uuwsptiier pablialMd iu the county, then the publi cation shall be made In the newspaper published nearest the county seat, having the largest circulation in" said county, J'rovided, That in every instance where tiicuartu or parties or ihe attorney or at torneys, interested in said publication shall have tbe right to designate the ne ws napers in which the said publication ahall be made." We copy above so much of the legal ad vertising law aa the public is interested In. We do this for the sole purpeso of putting the oicrra, litigants and attorneys upon their guard in relation to the mat ter, and lo guard them against being mis led. It Is the privilege of the party or at torney, at whose instance an advertise ment is inserted, to publish it la anv pa ftr he pleases. The Opi:ra presented at the Now Mem phis last night was Gounod's "Faust." It was put upon tho stage in a style that eclipsed till lormer representations here, and in every respect was a grand perform ance. The artists engaged were Frederi ci. Dziulia, Bimmer, Formes, Weinlieh, Weigand and Madaiite Berger. To say that they one and all sustained their rep utations, so intimately associated as thev are in the minds of the Memphis public 'vith'I'aust, 'would be to say I lie least thai could be said of them. But we think we can say more. They surpassed all their previous interpretations of charac ters as ditlicult as Ihe whole range of opera can atl'ord. Frederici's Margurettc was as faithful a portraiture as was ever offered this public. She sang superbly. In line voice i-hu eclipsed herself and car ried her audience captive from the rirt to tho last note of her part. In Ibe garden scene, in the third act.shu was particularly noticeable beyond anything she has ever offered us as a vocalist. Ilimmer nobly supported her. As Fdiut he has no su perior. His make-up was to the life, and his acting as spirited and artistic as his vocalization was beautiful and effective. Weinlieh was, as usual, a very Mephis tophiles indeed. His costume, gait, man ner aud singing were all that could be desired. Ho impressed the audience most favorably and divided with Fretleriei, Uiinmer and Dziuba tbe applause of the evening. The latter was, as sh j always Is.admirable, and was deservedly encored for her delightful rendition of a solo in the opening part of the third ae.. She is a favorite with tho musical public of Mem- ptus, anu uas won au ueart-s oy ner sprightlinesa, her unaffected natural ness and artist-like rendition of character. As tHebel, she was last ii.: . unusually attractive. Madam Beyer deserves par ticular mention for her performance of the character nf Mil CM Formos, as I'.'i'.-.e'o... . made quite an impression, and increased the esteem in which be is held by the opera-goers of our city. Weigand is worthy more than a passing notice. He was very good as Wagner. The chorus was especially effective and worthy of all praise. Thoroughly drilled, it "added much to the generat'effect. The orches tra, under Van Gehl, was as it has been since the first night, equal to every de mand from the overture to the last s"rdn. "Faust" was admirably performed, and never to a moroi fashionable or apprecia tive audience. Every seat iu tho par- quette aud dress circle was uiiQd.the latter being especially radiant with the beauty of Memphis. To-night we hope to see as handsome a house. Tho bill is Mozart's " Magic Flute." which wo are promised will lie given by an extraordinary cast, including the three prima donnas. This of itself should fill tho hbuse, but when to it we add tbat tho orchestral and scenic preparations are upon, a grand scale, wo think there can be little room for doubt or question. To insure the opera next ate! succeeding seasons we must patro nizo this splendid combination troupe of Grau's-cortainly the best that has ever played in Memphis. So far, the houses have paid; during the remaining eights of the week they should be made to yield at least a lair margin ot profit. We cannot close without suggesting at the instance of many mu"ical people, that it is not good taste to con verse during the performance to the annoyance of those of tho audience who appreciate good music, and who at tend iroiu their love of opera: and we lioTthal a habit so offensive and so vio lative of good breeding will hereafter lie carefully eschewed in bur handsome theater. Broom's Opera Uocse was crowded to repletion last night, and every act, from the rising of the curtain to the going down thereof, was vociferously applaud ed. Miss Iona Lang, specially, was the recipient of an encore for nearly every one of the beautiful ballads which she sang so sweetly. The bill for to-night is entirely new, nnd embraces the entire strength of tbe mammoth company. The P.vnLort Music Hall,-under the careful and judicious rule of Manager Thompson, ii still the resort of all true l o ra of sport. The new company take immensely with tho patrons of ihe house, and are deservedly becoming great favo rites, Tbe programme fcr this evening is fresh and rejdete with new acts, soflgs. dances, etc. See that you get into tho right house No. 231 Secoud street.
