Closing or the Chicago Musical Festi val. Chicago, June U. The last of the regular concerts of the rebuilding jubi lee was given this evening to an audi ence that, while not so large as that of last evening, was still of sufficient size to crowd very uncomfortably the im mense depot where the concerts have been given, and being largely composed of children, it exceeded iu noise and confusion either of those of yesterday. The natural consequence was that the effect of the music, particularly the orchestral pieces, was almost entirely destroyed. The programme was as follows : Overture, Jubal Night; grand chorus of one thousand children from the public schools; potjxmri, intro ducing gem sfrom Martha aud an andan te; fifth symphony of Beethoven, String Song; solo for cornet, Alexis Arbuckle; national air, America; overture from William TM. Lift Thine Eyes; solo for euphemer, Fblxt tie Concert, Alfred Rige; overture from Robespierre, En -ning Song; coronation march, Profcta, Meyerbeer; for the fourth number, Beet hoven's fifth symphony; au original grand march, Hwtutgc to Sew Chicago, by T. P. Pratt was substituted. Thecho russes, which were all given by the pub lic school-children, were given in a cred itable aud pleasing manner, and evoked enthusiastic applause. Arbuckle's cor net solo, wnich was, in spite of the con fusion, beautifully rendered, was re ceived with immense applause and an encore, which was good-naturedly com plied witii. This concert ends the mu sical part of the regular programme, but arrangements have been made for a concert to-morrow evening for Mr. Gil more's benefit. To-night a ball will be given in the board of trade hall, aud to morrow a number of excursions on the lake will be given. Fire-Twenties ol ls;i Important Circu lar. Washington, Juue t.

Sabers, Power and Ames The Hungry Trio Hot Weather and Hot Pol ities Attorney-General Morrison. From an Occasional Correspondent.! Jackson, Miss., Juue 5. Tnpubli cation in the Appeal of the twenty ninth ultimo, of the hitherto supposed correspondence between the governor and auditor of this State, has led to a serious, or rather comico-serious difficul ty between that u uique brace of carpet baggers. There, is a paper published at Vicksburg, called the lime, or the Time server, or some such "entitle," and h1 ited by a little ehfht-by-ten perfumed caibetbagger, whose name is Flake, or Snow-Flake. But though an admirerof his, 1 cannot always recall his beauti ful uame. Well, this Mr. Flake, in his meaudcrings about the historic "city of the Hills," in some of the barber-shops (he visits the barber-shops three times a day), picked up a copy ot that issue of the Appeal, and saw the aforesaid official correspondence. Your compositors had maliciously re duced some of tbe orthography to the ordinary standard of King's Kugiish, and thus deprived it of its principal point, for you must know that our gov ernor's wisdom and statesmanship is like Bill Arp's wit; itsonsisns chielly in its had spelling. Mr. Flake knows some thing about events as they trans pire in the auditor's office, and that the word "extreme" m tne governor's handwriting is always spelt with a double ee. He therefore felt called upon to publish,and did actually publish lor the edification of the benighted natives, an exact aud authentic copy of the original correspon dence, spelling and all, just as it came from under Governor Powers's own hands. Tbe governor read it as pub lished in the Time-Server, at first with infinite satisfaction, because he thought his letter to Auditor Musgrove was not only "smart," but exceedingly sharp and witty. It had taken him and two private secretaries, so the rumor goes, nearly a whole day and night to compose it. The idea that there was my violation of the rules of grammar or of official courtesy, or that there were any such rules to be observed, never, even when he saw his letter clothed in the dignity of print and com mented on, once perforated his cranium, till his brother-in-law's sister's nephew, or some such connexion as that, called his especial attention to it. He then frantically rushed into the auditor's of fice for a comparison of the published orthography with his manuscript. He compared them, word for word, andlet terfor letter; aud then, finding his let ter correctly copied by the types, he looked the auditor squarely in the face, and the following colloquy ensued: Powers Musgrove, you are the meanest man 1 ever seed! Musgrove I am not half as mean as you are, sir: P. That's false and you can't prove it, sir: M. ! Rising and swinging his arms) Sir, you are a lying, corrupt scoundrel : You told Judge C. and others that I promised you that, if you would sign the bill making the appropriation, I would issue the warrant for the whole amoimt ($10,692) subject to your order. it being understood that Mary McBride was to get notbiug. P. Yes; but what of that? M. Simply this: that your anprov al of the act lears date April !19th. when our interview on the subject was on the twenty-first, three days after you had signed n: P. I don't believe don't care I signed the act Musgrove, you are too mean a man for me to talk to. About that time there was a shuttling of feet heard in the auditor's office ("Mus." hasn't the smallest feet 1 ever saw), and Powers came rushing out, with Musgrove bringing up the rear. PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL. The questions most excitingly dis cussed and absorbing the largest share of attention just now are, whether the official correspondence of pub. funcs. is public property v and is the auditor cen surablefor allowing these letters to come to light? And, further, What was tbe nature or character of tbe "means" used by the governor, as referred to in the auditor's letter, by which the warrant in question was obtained by his excel lency. wnen tuese Knotty ques tions are decided, the public . ought to know the decision. Even a tolerably disinterested looker-on and listener cannot avoid being amused despite the irrepressible disgust which every honest ami intelligent observer must feel at the inexpressibly thin and transparent plotting aud counter-plot ting of the several small-fry aspiraots ior tne rooes wnicn now hang so ele gantly from the shoulders of the " act ing" governor. TWENTV-EOl K HLACKBIKDS ALL IN A PIE. The so-called " executive committee " of the Radical party, composed. I be lieve, of twenty carjetbaggers and four natives, nas pretenued to nave " a meeting." There was not a quorum, or half a quorum present, and consequent ly, u it was any other party but the Radicals, their action, of course, would be illegal and void. But with this party engineered iu the interest of a ring of carjetbag freebooters, it seems everythiug which looks to the control of the offices and plunder, and to keep ing them exclusively In the hands of their chiefs, is entirely acceptable. That part of the committee which "met" were in the interest of Ames. The flist thing they did was to expel some absent members, who, it was understood, are not friendly to Ames. They then set aboat "filling vacancies" in the com mittee, which they did by inserting in the list of names comprising the committee, certain prominent carpet baggers' names in place of southern Republicans, who ha I beeu appointed a the State convention, which oiigin y appointed tbe committee. This being done, the next thing was to deter mine at what time the nominating State convention should l called. The con stderations which ordinarily influence ihe calling of such a convention, for several reasons : First tecausc it was absolutely necessary thai their chief be allowed time to get his family from the north, and paring them into this State, amdmakesomeshowofpretending to live In the State. Secondly Because even if Ames already had his family here, it is iudispensible that he should, by some means, be relieved from mak ing au active canvass, inasmuch as that shining spirit does not shine well on the stump indeed, he has not the capacity or the intelligence necessary to make even a radical harangue to a crowd com posed exclusively of his "friends," and none of the opposition near enough to reply or even listen to him, and it was was known that if he should be brought upon the stump, there are thousands of men sji over the State, of every shade of political opinion, any of whom could, and possi bly might, get after Ames on the stump, and, by a few words of reply, comment or ridicule, humiliate him in the ures- ence of his "friends." And, thirdly, it is known that the negroes want to have a say-so in the make-up of the State ticket, and if refused a fair division of the "honors" of their party, they will get up, support and elect a ticket of their own ; but if the convention is postponed till iust before the election, thev will not then have time Uj bring out their tiuket, and the negroes will then be forced to support a ticket made up al most exclusively of carpetbaggers. THEY HAVEN'T HEARD OF BEN NABER.S. These are some of tbe reasons which influenced this cabal of bummers, self styled a committee, to adjourn without calling a State convention, and to re- i solve that they would meet again late in July for the purpose of calling it. Meanwhile, fowes, the speinst, wuo, if not an "extreem" Radical, is at least an "extreem" simpleton, announces his purpose to oppose Ames, even if that worthy shall receive the nomina tion; and, although Powers is not iu favor with " the com mittee," he has command of the militia, a secret service fund, and a contingent fund, each fund amounting to not less than ten thousand dollars. These, when "put where they can do the most good." are worth more in a campaign, under the circumstances, than a dozen committees of such fellows as compose the State executive commit tees. THE HUNGRY RASCALS. But I have uot named all, or a fourth of the aspirants, whose eyes are cast upon the executive office and mansion with an air of intense longing. There are Attorney General-Morris, Judge Cbandlei, Colonel Flournoy, Auditor Musgreve, and jpeesibly others, all of whom are undoubtedly keen on the secret, and, as matters now stand, any of them have as good or better chance to get the Radical governorship, than either AMES OR POWERS. It is understood that, as soon as the attorney-general gets through with his duties before the present term of tbe supreme court, which will be in -the course of a few weeks, he will give his attention to the "conspiracy" formed against him at the late session of the leg islature. The "damaging report" of the railroad subsidy investigating commit tee gotten up for the purpose of "killing Morris oft'," does not seem to have ac complished much iu the furtherance of that design, and being as much at home with his pen as on the hustings, his forthcoming vindication is looked for with impatient interest by all parties. MR. ATTOKNEV-CiENERAL MORRIS, I believe, is a "full-blooded Misaissip pian," and has, unquestionably, more brains, more honesty and more soul than all his accusers put together, but his open arraignment aud public denun ciation of corruption and plunder ing, had given him such a hold upon the honest element of his own party and such a growing popu larity among the . masses ol the conser vatives as to render him an object of fear in one direction, and of envy in the other, that it was determined, if they failed, to convict with evidence, which they did most signally, they would at at least try anu besuiear bim in their " retorty As an illustration, one of the candidates for governor in a public speech in North Mississippi few days ago, is reported in a newspaper to have said he " did not ls?lieve that Attorney General Morris had sold his opinion on the railroad subsidy act for five hundred dollars; nor for any other sum, but, he said, the bare imputation that he did, had completely blasted his prospect for political promotion." Now il Mr. Morris's prospects are so "com pletely blasted,' why thus keep attack ing him? and, above all, if the speaker does not, himself, believe tbe imputa tion, why does he expect it to injure Mr. Morris's prospects? So every candid reader in search of tiuth will inquire The truth is, the attorney-general, al though a republican, is too much for them, and having already, by his expo sures and denunciations, saved the State thousands of dollars see, for instance, the cutting down of their plunder ing opportunities, in the one item of printing, during the last year to the extent of not less than thirty thousand dollars the political cormo rants and whippers-in would delight in getting him out of the way. "That's what's the matter," and so it goes in the Republican wigwam. There has been one or two deaths, and several cases of sickness here, within the past few days, of a character calculated to furnish gossip for the sensationalist. They were nothing more, however, than sudden attacks of cholera-morbus, caused from imprudent vegetable diet and fatiguing exposure to the hot rays of a June sun. Thine for the right, x. St. Louis Badge!. St. Loins, May 6. A strike by the freight-train brakemen, on the eastern division of the Atlantic and Pacific railroad, is now in progress, aud the trains have leen somewhat delayed for a couple of days. The strike was occa sioned by the change made by the company in the mode of payment for service. The company has heretofore paid the brakemen fifty-five dollars per mouth. Now they propose to pay each man two dollars per round, which will reduce the wages three or four dollars yper month. Some of the men have ac cepted tne new terms, while tne otners hold out, but their places will be filled in a day or two, and no further deten tion of business will occur. The dancehouse at Wichita, Kansas, at which two soldiers were wounded tbe day before yesterday, was burned down by the soldiers at two o'clock yesterday morning, and all the inmates driven away. One man was mortally wounded aud the keeper of the dancehouse was slightly injured and driven to the brush. The Iron Mountain railroad will also be advertised for sale by Governor Wood sou in connection with the Atlantic and Pacific road. The railroad companies will probably apply for an injunction to restrain the sale, and the whole matter of the constitutionality of the act of the legislature in releasing the- State lien will be brought before the court.

The Miner oi Colonel loung, a resident of Cook county, Texas, was killed and rob- tjed on the eleventh of April, 1872, by a man named Bunch. The next dav Col onel Young started in pursuit, and for more than a year he has been tracking the felon through tbe Indian Territory, thence through Arkansas aud Louisiana. east into Mississippi, and north through Tennessee and Kentucky. Crossing the Mississippi river, the felon made his way through ArKansas, by the wig wams of the Indian Territory, thence through the mountains and forests of Arkansas again, the hills and wilds of southern Missouri, over the prairies of southern Kansas, down the head wa ters of Medicine Lodge, and among the Arrapahoes. On the twentieth of last January, Colonel Young lost the trail. On the eighth of April, a telegram from Fort Scott iuformed him that Bunch had recently been in that place. Soon he was there, only to learn that Bunch had left for Lamar, in Benton county. From that place Young traced him to Stockton, Bolivar, tjuincy, Warsaw. Sedalia. Qoonville.. Here Bunch was arrested, and, after this long chase, has been identified by Colonel Young and committed to prison. Tbe secretary of the interior denies that charges have been preferred against the commissioner of pensions at Washington. 1 HOMPBON At two o'clock Friday moru las, June stii, ( aswbu.1.
