The plot of the opera consists la the unlooked-for appearance of Fanchette. a former flame of Don Tumberto, who having become governor or the Royal Navy Academy of Portugal and husband to the Queen is placed in a bad plight thereby. FaBchette disguises herself as a middy and joins the "Royal Navee," and the deception is kept up until the denouement Just before the fall of the curtain. Slight as the story is it seems to introduce a number of characters, most of whom are excellent and who furnish no end of amusement and sing finely. The company is said to be very complete. The music is all good and much of it inspiring, and wilt be interpreted by as large an orchestra as the -Pirates of Penzance,r this week, and will be under the baton of Stgnor G. opertl.

ILECT10N or DELEGATES TO CHICAGO. A mass meeting of the greenbackers of this District was held at Cosmopolitan Hall, corner sth and E streets last night, to elect delegates to the Chicago convention on the 9th of Jane. ?:oL I.ee CranaeU called the mating to order, stat1 Irg Its object, and nominated Mr. Henry D. Trader as chairman, who was unanimously i elected, and Mr. W. W. Jackson was ch03en l secretary. Judge Warrick Martin said he had > been appealed to for his consent to allow his 1 name to be used as a candidate for delegate to the ! national convention of gieenbackers, out there were reasons he would not now enter Into at this time which would compel hied to decline. He asked the privilege of naming two candl? dates for the convention at Chicago; two men whom all knew aud honored, r At this point a member arose and Interrupted ? Mr. Martin,claiming that he was entirely out of ; order; the first regular business being the question of instructions to their delegates, etc. He I objected to old party tricks being brought into a greenbackers' meeting. Judge Martin proceeded to give the names of Tlios. J. Durant, esq., and Col. Lee C'randall as the proper persons to represent the District of Columbia before the coni ventlon. He was proceeding to recite the polltl; cal history of these gentlemen at length and to compliment them, when objections were made ) by some members, but the chair stated that the ; call for the meeting specifically stated the business to be brought Deiore them was simply the ; elec tion of delegates. The question was i aided < as to whether or not the meeting would first I prepare instructions to guide its delegates, and, after considerable discussion. Mr. Burnham got, r the tloor and desired to read a set i of resolutions embodying the whole of the 5 matters under discussion and the proper solution of difficulties, but the convention declined to hear them. The chair tinally ruled everything out of order except the election of delegates. I M r. .1 aeobs moved t hat before electing delegates tLe meeting proceed to formulate Instructions i to delegates; lost. Mr. A. Cohen moved that t t he meeting proceed to elect delegates by ballot. ; Mr. Burnham opposed the electing of delegates first and Instructing them afterwards. It was r unusuaL ne had prepared a series of resolutions, which he desired to have read, and which , would settle all the matters In dispute. Another , discussion arose as to the manner of voting. Mr. Jacobs moved to amend Mr. Cohen's motion by having two tellers, to receive the votes ; of all greenbackers and none others. He saw republicans and democrats present, ' and discrimination should be made in i leceivlng votes. Mr. Cohen raised the point 1 as to who they all could agree upon to count noses. It would be a difficult thing to discrimit nate at that meeting between republicans, democrats or greenbackers. Dr. Howard thought > such discrimination should not be tolerated; he had come there as a representative of a labor 1 organization, which nfltnrally is in favor of the principles of the greenback party, lie was op! posed to Star Chamber practices at a mass meeting. Mr. Jacobs asked Dr. Howard If he Is not a republican office-holder. Dr. Howard appealed to the chair as to whether he should [ Inform that meeting as to his business a fl airs. Here seme one proposed to elect. Messrs. Durant and Crandall by acclamation, and before any one could get in an objection edgeways the chair put the vote and declared the gentlemen named unanimously elected as deli gates. The chair appointed Mr. McNamara as sergeant-at-arms. Messrs. W. W. Jackson and K. VY, Wade were then elected as alternates to the convention. Mr. Durant then by invitation addressed the meeting on the greenback question, followed by Col. Crandell, after which the meeting adjourned. Aimihcikicntfc, Ac.

Yesterday afternoon there assembled about the 15. a: P. depot about one hundred colored people, mostly* young colored men and women, who v -re anxiously looking for parties who engaged then* to go to Long Branch. It appears that they were all the victims of a very mean trick. From their statements it appears that severai young colored men have been going around among the colored people here pretending to be looking up servants?waiters and chambermaids especially?for the Long Branch hotels, and requiring them to pay small amounts or money to secure the places. Some of the vie- , tlms had paid the swindlers $1, and others had been for some l lme paying smaller weekly sums. Yesterday afternoon was the time set for their departure for Long Branch, their "employers" having stated that they would be at the depot with tickets at that time. Arter the victims bad waited some time they came to the sensible , conclusion that they had been outrageously swindled, and left for their homes sadder and wiser. 1 Gold filled vest chains, from S3 to $10.
