Prof. Macailistkb Last Night. There
was not as iarge an attendance at Prof
iJIacallister's Soiree at the Opera House las
night as we expected to see, though It was
by no means- a small one.- In his peculiar
line Prof. Macallister Is without a peer1
. Unaided by machinery or confederates, by
the very swiftness of his fingers he deceives
you, and does It completely. He is very
diflerent from other magicians, in that he
does not hesitate to- perform his tricks in
the midst of his audience, and defies de
tectlon." ' His performances last night gave
unbounded satisfaction. After the enter
tainment he presented his. audience with
glassware, furniture, sacks of flour .torkies.
mackerel, lamps, opera cioaus and booda,
canned frulta, &o. - The . principal prize, a
complete tea set Of French gold band china
worth $40 or $50, was drawn by Lewis
Leonardo who lives at the steam brick
yard on South Hlgb street.' To-ilght,
among otbari, Jthe CavoriU , feat known, as
the touch of th Angels, will be lotro-
duced.-The principal gift will be a mag
hlficeot parlor lOange. ,'We say, to all par
readers, go and sec Prof. Macallister,
- CoLLBOEMATra Bkchioh. On Tuesday
there was a meeting of the old students of
Central College, of the class of 1818 and
1817, at the Probate Court room. They
met for the purpose ol making the necessa
ry arrangements for a reunion of the mem
bers of the class or as many of them as can
be got together, at an early day in the fu
ture. " Among those present were General
John C. ' Lee, our Lieutenant Governor
elect; Hon. George, W,tGlick, of Kansas;
iuu. vreorge u. converse; Hon. John M
Pogh, our present Probate Jndire: Hon
Lorenzo Sawyer, one ot the Judges of the
Supreme Court Of California ; A. Y. Hoop

Seventh Judicial District ot Ohio: A.: T.
Hay, Btq, of Burlington, Iowa, who is the
inventor of what is known as "The Et. c-tro-chemical
boiler Protector;' Brigadier
general R. k. Scott, now ot Charleston.
South Carolina; Prof. John S, Hendi rson;
Prof. John Covert,ofKalamazoo, Micliignn;
Rev. Alvin Washburn, son of the very ven-
'"hie Prof. Ebenezer Washburn: and
Vam s E. Wright, Esq, of the well known
aw ilrm of Sparrow & Wright, of thlscitv.
T lere is an array ot names and of talent
auy institution of learning in the laud
might be proud of. Though Central Col
lege was not of long life, it died eloriouslv
and deserves grateful remembrance if for
nothing else than laying the foundation on
which was built the intellectual temple, a
tew or whose pillars we mention above.'
We hope these gentlemen may succeed
In their iutended reunion. There is a De-
culiar pleasure In meeting old school and
classmate after hianv vears of senai-nt inn-
uncqualled in any other meetings In lift
outside of the family circle. - There are '
the college scrapes to enninemte ; and th-
tracings ot different characters as thev '
first developed in achool or college, and '
were elaborated in after life; bow this oneJ 1
the genius of his class, fell by the wav-!
side, destroyed by strong drink; how tht .
ami student, the plodding one, reached
fame by slow but sure stages. .
it is understood that the members of the
class will celebrate their meeting by a din
ner at the residence of Philemon Hess,
Esq, a member of the ; Class. We hope
they may all be present, and enjoy them
selves to the full. ; ; . . j; ; ,
A WoziDRRFUL Chanok. A few days' ago
we mentioned the arrest and commitmei t
to jail of two women and a negro girl for
stealing iron from the railroaJs. One of
the women,' it will be remembered, was the
widow of a soldier killed early in the war.
We' have waited to see if the super-loyal
of our citizens would do anything for tilts
woman; It the G. A. R, whose only 'mis
sion is charity for their comrades aud their
widows and orphans, and who "don't take
the first darned politic in thelrn," would
rush forward, by brigade, by battalion, hy
company, by platoon, by section, by rquad,
or , individually, . and assist this starving
family 1 We have waited expectantly, we
say, for a rush.- Our verdict is that tin y
tloirt rush worth a cent. Several roars
ago when the Government wanted men
when the flag was below par, and patriot-
ism stood at a premium when rich men
quaked,wlth fear that their sons would bt '
demanded from them when pious, sanc
timonious men paid lor whisky by thebar-
rrel, in order to intoxicate poor men Into the
army, and save : their sous when the .
drums and fifes beat through -our streets,
and large meetings were held, and wealthy
men, ' representative men, men at the
head ' of - large - corporations, publicly
pledged " themselves ,' to V look . ' after
the wives of. the solJiers, if their
husbands would , enlist and light the .
uaiuea : ana inereDy save the sons
of . these rich' men from going into the
ranks, it was all very nice. But that time
is gone by the emergency lor men is no
longer felt the pledges thus given by
inen, whose words should be as good and
binding as their bond, are forgotten.! Hun
dreds of poor men were humbugged. Into
the army by these talse promises, made by
the men we refer to, who would not have
gone; hundreds of them perished on the
oatue-fleld, lingered a miserable captivity
In the Southern -prisons, or 'returned
maimed and crippled. But have those
promises been fulfilled ? The wall of des
pair from hundreds of widows and orphans,
still suffering frora-want, is an answer to
the question. It was men that were need-
ea, ana promises were cheap and easily !
broken.' Poor men laid down their live:
that the sons of the rich might not be ex- i
posed to the dangers ol war. and while '
these same individuals are now revelling
in the wealth dislionestly realized from the
government, the wives and childreu of the
men who' fought their" 'battles,1 and sus
tained the nonor ol the flag, are actually
suffering for want of the common necessa
ries of life starving and freezing, and their
widows are 'sent to a common dungeon as
an act of charity 1 Great is loyalty ! Great
are its profits I

' one or two citizens at the depot on yester
day. They first tried to get a countryman
to change a $100 bill for them, as one fel
low wanted to go off on the cars and owed
t'other fellow a small amount and couldn't
make the change. Stranger couldn't make
it either. Then would stranger let him
have $25 and keep the $100 bill till they
got on the tars, when it could be flxeL
Stranger had read the papers, and wouldn't
, do that. . They left him and picked up an
other subject, and tried to play the old
check game. Wanted to borrow $50 at.d
give Subject a check for $1,000 as security
Subject had read the papers also, and call
ed an officer, who took one of the sharpers
Into custody.' VA8 nothing could be found
on him - to convict, and as the strangers
couldn't remain over to appear against
him, he was let go. The $100 bill was found
In the depot after tbev had gone. - It was

portion of the communication which re
fers to the condition ot the Union men and
freedmen in Texas, and to the powerless
nef8 of the military in the nresent state of'
affairs to afford them protection.-. Even the
moral enoct or tne presence of' troops is

in .Brownsville, in my opinion, the great
number of murders of Union i men -and

unpunished but uninvestigated, constitute
firactically a state of insurrection, and be
ieving it to be the province and duty of?

tened to with marked, interest and atten

emphatic in General Grant as the In ture
candidate for the Chief Magistracy of the
nation, as this letter to the President is a
more open and reliable expression of the
General's opinion than thev have as yet
been able to obtain, appear "to think they
have drawn out sufficient light to increase'
their indorsement of him.
No action was held bv the civil author

Message fro the President.
The President sent the following mes
sage to Congress to-day :
Gentlemen of the Senate and Mouse qj Bepre

An official copy of the order Issued bv
Major General W. S. Hancock, commander
of the fifth military district, dated Head
quarters, New Orleans, on the 20th day of
November, has reached me through the
resuiar cnanneis oi tne war uepartracnt,
and I herewith communicate it to Congress
for such action as mav seem to be nroner.
view of all the circumstances. - -
It will be perceived that Gen. Hancock
announces that he will make the law the
rule of his conduct; that he will uphold
the courts and other civil authorities in the
performance ot their proper duties, and
that be will use his military power only to
preserve the peace and enforce the law.
He declares very explicitly that the sacred
rizhts ot trial by jury and privilege of the
writ of habeas corpus shall not be crushed
out or trodden under foot. He goes further, '
nuu in vnv wujfjreueusive sentence aspens
that the principles of American liberty are
still the inheritance of this Deonle-anrl ever
When a ereat soldier, with unrestricted
power in his hands to oppress his fellow
man, voluntarily forsroes the chance ot
gratifying his selfish ambition and devotes
himself to the duty of building up the lib-
erties and strengthening the laws of his
country, he presents an example of the
highest virtue ;that human motive is ca
pable of practicing. The strongest claim:
of Washington to be first in war.' Mrs t iu
peace, and first in the hearts of his coun
trymen, is founded on the great fact that
in all his Illustrious career he scrupulously '
abstained from violating- the lezal and con-
etitntional rights of his fellow - citizens. :
Whet he surrendered his commission to
Congress, the President of that body spoke
his highest praUe in saying he had always i
regarded the rights of the civil authorities
through all dangers and disasters. -,v
wnerever power above the law courted
bis acceptance he calmly put tempt itioa
aside. By such magnanimous acts ol for
bearance he was the universal admiration
of mankind, and left a name which has no
rival in the history ot the world. 1
I am far frnni savinsr General Honeook '
Is the only officer of the American army
who is Influenced by the example of Wash-:
Ington. Doubtless thousands of them are
faithfully devoted to tne principles for
which the men of the revolution laid down
their lives, but the distinguished honor be
longs to mm ot oeing tne first officer in
high command south of the Potomac, since
the close of the civil war, who has given
utterance to these noble sentiments in the
form ot a military order.
I respectfully suggest to Consress some
public recognition of Gen. Hancock's pat- :
riotic co-iduct is due, if not to him to the
friends of law and justice throughout the
country. Ot such an act as his, at such a
time, it Is but fitting that the dignity should
be vindicated aim virtue proclaimed, as its
value as an example may not be lost to the
[Signed] ANDREW JOHNSON.
The Senate Finance committee, in Dre-
sentlng the funding bill, submitted a re
port lu which they refer to the claim that
the principal ot the 5-20 bonds are payable
in gold, and say that without decldinar the
question they propose a substitution of
new Donds. cleir and explicit in their
terms, for the 5-20 bonds, as they become
redeemable. They further sav that if this
exchange is refused by the bondholders it

The Contraction Question.
The Herald's special says: There is a
material difference between the anti-contraction
bill of the House and that report
ed to-day in the Senate. The former stops
all contraction and canceling of notes,
while the latter only applies to the four
millions a month which the Secretary is
authorized by law to contract.
'Mr." Sherman, in private conversation
to-day; said he should not call up the anti
contraction bill till the funding bill was
disposed of, and that if the latter was pass
ed there , would bo no necessity , for the
S. S. Cox for Minister to Austria.
' The Times' special says: There seems to
be no doubt that S. S. Cox will be nominat
ed (or Minister to Austria, and Governor
Ford, of Ohio, for Ecquador.
Disappearance of Col. Parker.
Much- excitement was caused last night
in Washington by the disappearance of
Col.. Ely. Parker, of Gen. Grant's .staff, the
