I
Grand Opera.?On the loth of this
month our citizens will be favored with
the opportunity of witnessing Balfe's
charming o^era of ;the "Bohemian Girl."
by the Kichmgs-Bernard Grand English
I, Opera Company,numbering forty artists,
chorus and orchestra. Of their peril
formance of thin opera the Charleston
Courier speaks in the following laudatory
term-:
r- The Richinga-Bernard matinee at the
r, Academy of Music on Saturday attracted
a large and fashionable audieuce. Balfe's
popular opera, the "Bohemian Girl," was
given, and in it the troupe probably
' achieved the greatest triumph of their
present engagement. In lyrical matters
u it sometimes happens that exquisite
music falls short of its proper effect be,
cause it is not well adapted to the story
and language which it attempts to
illustrate. Thus Traviata when sung in
English, and Trovatore when sung in
German, lose hall their effect: It also
'* happens sometimes that while the music
.of an opera may be of no more than
average merit, it is so nicelv fitted to the
a libretto that the opera commands a lasting
popularity. Balfe's "Bohemian
Girl" is attractive in music and dialogue,
e and to this may be ascribed its popnlarity.
e Its presentation on Saturday afternoon
was the greatest success of the BicbingsBernard
troupe. Mr. Gates' Thaddeus
and Mr. Kinroa' Devilthoof were ad8
mirable. Both roles were acted and sung
to perfection. It is needless to add that
Mrs. Bernard'* "Arline" was exquisitely
rendered.

o'clock five prisoners con fined in the 13elmont
county jail at St. Clan-eville escaped
by breaking the iron bars over one of the
cells and malting their exit from
the building by means of a skylight.
The prisoners are usually allowed the
liberty of the jail until bedtime. It is
evident that they had assistance from
outside, as a ladder was found leaning
against the wall where they descended.
The names of the escaped prisoners are
Albert King, Lewis Wel?haus, Win.
Steen, John l)avis and John Lewis. They
were all under sentence of the court,
and were to have been taken to the penitentiary
at Culumbus to-day. At last
accounts they had not been captured.

Public comment growing out of the

here upon the affairs of the contending
State governments in Louisiana, received
a new phase to-day^ because of reports
that gained circulation to the effect that
differences of opinion had originated between
the General of the Army and the
Secretary of War, upon the ground taken
by the general government in the telegram
sent March 2, by direction of tho
President, to General* Augur, as to the
non-recognition of either of the political
parties in Louisiaaa. General Sherman
to-day telegraphed General Augur in
connection with the subject,but repeated
applications to the General for a copy of
the dispatch wen* refused, mainly because
it was more of a ]>er*oiial than an official
communication. The General, however,
sayA under existing circumstances he
conceives it proper that General Augur,
in whose caution and judgment he has
every confidence, should remain on the
ground for the purpose of^ preventing
breaches of tho peace by either party.
General Sherman deprecates any action
which would be construed a* forestalling
the official acta of President Hayes. General
Sherman has snegested that General
Augur advise Governor Nicholli to consider
the importance of caution under the

at the Ebbitt House by his Ohio friends,
lie acknowledged the compliment by
making a speech, saying in conclusion:
"I am not authorized to ?peak for the
President-elect, but 1 venture to say that
in pursuing a just and conciliatory policy
it must proceed on the basis of "an enforcement
of the Thirteenth and Fourteenth.
Amendments to the Constitution
of tjje United States. It mutt proceed
upon the basis of granting protection to
life and liberty, and to the political
rights of ali classes, without regard to
color or politic*. There can be no compromise,
no jpeace, which is not based
on the political and civil rights of all
classes of men. When there shall be
such protection to life and liberty, then
there will be peace and tranquility, but
not before. 1 have no doubt from his
utterances and lofty character that he
will do the South full and ample justice,
and endtavor as far as possible to obliterate
the past and blot out the hatreds
engendered by the war, ami that every
step in that direction will be for the
peace, unity and protection of all."
Senator Morton, in the course of his
