P. Halberg brought suit yesterday in the Brookly city court, before Judge Rejuolda, against Pohce Inspector Waddy to recover ten thousand dollars damages lor laise arrest, and imprisonment. On the twenty-ninth of January lagt, when the head of WTlliam IT. Simmons was found near the East river in a lumber-yard, Ilalberg was held on suspicion of being concerned in the murder. It was afterward proven that Andreas Fuchs Lad committed the crime, and Ilalberg was dis charged. The plaintuT claimed that by being held as a prisoner for twenty-four hours his character guffcrexl damage to the amount churned. Counsel for the defendant said the defendant had ample ground on which to hold the plaintiff. The plaintiff was with Simmons a great deal, had played cards with him, borrowed money from him and was seen in his company just previous to the murder. The jury, after an absencs of twenty min utes, returned a verdict for the plaintiff." A3IUSE3IEXTS. The KIcliliiKS-Bernard Opera Combina tion. There was an appreciative audience in at tendance at the Theater last night on the first appearance of the Caroline Richings-Bernard grand English opera combination in "Wal lace's very pleasing opera entitled Maritana, with Mrs. Richings-Bernard, long a Mem phis favorite, in the title role. Since the ap pearance of this troupe at the Memphis Theater last season it has been strengthened by the addition of vocal and instrumental ar tists, and now it is perhaps the largest operatic combination traveling. In bringing the company to its present proportions all the old favorites have been retained, and such additions of talent and artistic ability as is necessary in properly and effectively produ cing the most popular English and Italian operas of which the repertoire of the presenc combination is composed. The troujK) comprises over forty members, em bracing a full chorous and complete orches tra. The presentation of Maritana last night, though it did not make de mands upon the full strength of the company chosen for more difficult tasks, yet evidenced the fact that great care and good judgment had beeri exercised in the se lection ot none but artistes. We take pleas ure in making special mention of the fact that Mrs. Bernard's voice has lost none of its power and sweetness, and that the gifted lady controls it, as ever, with the marvelous skill and bewitcliing magic that causes friends that knew and heard her years ago to wonder how she has bsen able to retain, in its pristine purity, a voice that has experi enced so much hard work. Mr. Harry Gates, the leading tenor, and one of the new faces, by his excellent rendition of his solos, in the character of "Don Cajsar de Bazan," to use a common expression, walked right into the affections of the audience, and more than once elicited marked evidences of apprecia tion. In the trio rendered by Mr. Gates, Mr. Benitz ("Don Jose de Santarem"), and Miss Hattic Moore ("Lazarillo"), the applause was more marked, so much so that its repetition was demanded even after one of the singers had made her exit. Mr. Benitz's rendition of "In Happy Moments," was another very clever execution, the audience attesting with a demand for its repetition, to which Mr. Benitz did not see proper to respond. The choruses were rendered strong, full and har monious. The orchestra, composed of twelve or fourteen instruments, under the direction of Signor J. M. Kavoni, performed its task well, and was a great auxiliary in the pleas ing presentation of the piece. The cast of Maritana was as follows: Maritana Caroline Richings-Bernard Marchioness Mrs. Henri Drayton Don Caesar de Bazan Mr. Harry Gates Don Jose de Santarem Mr. J. J. Benitz Charles II., King of Spain Mr. W. H. Kinross Lazarillo MIssHattle Moore Slarquls Mr. C. J. Marson Captain of the Guard Mr. Joseph Dauphin Peasants, Gypsies, Lords and Ladles. To-night will be presented Balfe's grand opera of the Bohemian Girl. The scenes are laid in Austria, but the words will be in Eng lish . An opportunity will be afforded of hear ing Mrs. Bernard's artistic rendition of "I Dreamt that I Dwelt in Marble Halls." The opera abounds whh beautiful solos, duets, trios and choruses, and, as rendered by the Caroline Richings-Bernard opera combina tion, cannot fail to please, and which we hope will be greeted by a full house. The Bethel Lecture. Last night there was a small but apprecia tive audience at the Memphis Bethel to hear the lecture upon "Application and Genius," by Prof. W. H. Foute; principal of the Mar ket Etreet school. Tins is to be regretted, es pecially as Prof. Foute is a young man of literary acquirements, anu, as aemonstratca by his lecture last night, able to interest and please any audience. While his lecture did not assume any new or unheard-of hypothe sis in the presentation of "genius" and "ap plication, yet the style of his lecture was both graceful and forcible. In this respect Prof. Foute displayed com mendable taste such, indeed, aa we might expect from any one versed in belles lettres, and in the course of his lecture evi denced much--learning, deep study, and a faithful judgment in the selection of his sub jects of illustration. While recognizing the power of genius, he held that application was necessary in order for it to achieve anything great in science, romance or war. In support of the necessity of application to genius, he gave as evidences the causes that led to the production of Byron's Childe Harold and Gray's Elegy; the latter production hav ing undergone a study and correc tion of twenty-two years. Napo leon, he claimed as a representative of military genius. However, this man of his tory won his victories not by his genius alone, but by constant application. Genius alone had led him to abstract theories of war; ap plication led him to conquer and surmount the practical difiiculties. The lecturer also alluded to the failure of the Edinburgh pub lishing house as the cause that impelled the great genius of romance, Walter Scott, to ap ply himself to the Uquidation of the debt that was then thrust upon him. He toiled for years to accomplish this, often work ing eighteen out of twenty-four hours, and had paid nearly the whole debt when he died. His efforts show what may be ac complished by patience, toil, and a ln'gh sense of honor. The emulation, the ambi tion, the desire for excellence, should only be encouraged in so far as they encourage in dustry and. honest effort. The failure to recognize this doubtless leads men to go through life like horses in a tread-mill, and to assume responsibilities for which they are unfit bv talent and education. The convic tion called genius, which precludes the'neces s'tty for exertion, is always fatal. The charge that we are living in an age of uncertainty is true in some respects. Application is the most efficient of all forces for the attainment of anv irreat end: irenius itself does little worthy of being cherished. In the course of his remarks rroi. route saia mat wnen Hor ace wrote his own yrsise,JExegit)ionunetttum cere perenjiius, etc., it was not so much upon the tact of the edifice having been built, as the fact that he had laid one stone upon an other and completed it. However tliis may be, we" hardly tliink that when Horace wrote he could have been actuated by any reason other than the custom incident to the writers of his age, for at that time there were no public journals to make such an nouncement. At any rate what he afterward wrote was far more of a monument to his genius and an evidence of his masterly appli cation than any of the odes he indicted. In addition to Prof. Foute's excellent lecture, Mrs. Foute and Miss Ethel Foute sang Our Way Across the Sea in a pleasant manner. Mr. John Legler also gave' a vocal selection from Haydn's Creation in his accustomed style, there beingan instrumental accompani ment by Prof. C. Karch, of St. Peter's. The evening's entertainment concluded with a duet' There's Xo One to Welcome Me Home by Misses Ada Ward and Helen M'Millon, whose rendition was sparkling and joyous. Billiard Exhibition. To-night Mr. Edward Shaw, of St. Louis, will give a grand billiard exhibition in As sembly hall. Mr. Shaw is one of the best billiard players in America, his fancy shots being remarkable.

The pangs endured by the rheumatic are attributed by scientific pathologists to the contact of a certain abnormal acrid element in the blood with the sensitive covering of the muscles and joints. Hostetter's stomach bitters, being a superb blood depurent, is ad mirably calculated to expel tins impurity, and by removing the cause to allay the pain and feverish symptoms which it produces. That it is a most successful remedy for rheu matism, neuralgia and gout, as well as a re liable meaiis cf counteracting those diseases, is a fact amply evidenced by voluntary certifi cates emanating from those whom it has cured, and attested by medical practitioners of high reptite. It is likewise a sovereign curative of dyspepsia, constipation, liver complaint, urinary troubles and general de bility, as well a3 the most popular and suc cessful antidote to malaria extant A 3Ionnineitt as big as the grand pyramid might be built of the teeth that have been ruined bv netr- lect.
