DRAMATIC.
The Olympic.—This house has had
another highly successful week with Blanche’s “Follies
cf a Night l and Byron’s burlesque of -'lll Treated 11l
Trovalore.” The former introduced to us, as the Duchess
de Chartres, Miss Henrietta Irvim, who made a very fine
imprcssiin Indeed. Snehas a very imposing stage pres
ence, an agreeable voice of good compass, great play of
features and eyes that sparkhngly interpret the emotions
which she simulates. She is “ne of tne most tasteful
dressers on the stage, and never forgets that she is a lady.
The possession of the requisites wnich we have named
shows that she is a great acquisition to Mrs. Wood’s com
pany. Mr. Drew’s Pierre was acceptable and funny, but
we have seen the part played with much less effort and
much more drollery. Mr. Stoddarfs Drugendraft was,
like everything that is done by this conscientious artist, a
very fine piece of acting, and Mr. Mortimer, as the Duke,
renewed his right to be called an excellent light come
dian. The piece was very well put upon the stage.
Of the burlesque, perse, we cannot say much of praise.
The author is not nearly as happv in this as in other pro
ductions of the same class, and it needed the superb
mounting and the excellent distribution of characters
given to It, to make it keep the boards for the week that
it has been run. Mrs. Wood’s Manrico was good, xndshc,
in her knightly costume very beautiful indeed. We have
not heard her sing as well on any previous occasion dur
ing the present season, her opening solo being a perfect
little vocal gem. Mr. Drtw’s Azucena was inimitable in
sr me portions of the. burlesque; but m others it fell snort
of what we had a right to expect, judging from his Ma
zeppa. Too much cannot be said in praise of Mr. Davidge
as the Count di Luna. Throughout he was very even and
excessively funny. almost as worthy of praise as in his
Widow Meinotte. Bye the bye why cannot Mrs. Wood with
her present company give us the Claude Meinotte bur
lesque? Touched up a little t > suit the times it would
make a hit and it would cost but little to produce it
Young Parsloe’s Kinchin in the Truvat re would be funny
were not its point blunted by vulgarity. Mrs. Sedley
Brown is not great as Leonora, but Miss Harris as Inez
stuns us by the manner of tier make up.
On to-morrow evening we are f have an entire change
Of programme: the Pride of the Mirket,” with Mrs,
Wood as Marton— a character wnich she has made her
own, and in which she need leir no rivalry—and “A Cu
Tious Case.” in which Miss Irving finds a nart peculiarly
suited to her chaste and commendable style of acting
Wallace's Theatre.—“ Pure Gold,”
the most recent sensation at this house, is one of Mr.
Westland Marston’s most recent dramatic productions,
and it comes to us with the stamp of London approval.
As produced here, it has been a most decided success;
indeed, the talent of the company and the skill of the
artists of the bouse have been lavished upon it, and
herein lie greater reasons for that success than are to be
found in its intrinsic literary merits : though it is strongly
sensational, and has many very fine, though not purely
original situations. It has a great moral underlying its
incidents; which is, that the crucible of adversity and the
fires ol suffering will bring forth the brighter portions,
the “pure gold,” of the human character. We refrain
from giving a history of the plot, which has been done
by nearly all of the daily papers and by some of the
weeklies, an I pass to a brief consideration of the superb
manner in which the drama has been given to the pub
lic. All the stage arrangements are unrivalled in the
chastity, tastefulness and appropriateness of their char
acter. The task of “art concealing art” is here accom
plished. The Frank Rochford of Mr. Lester Wallack is one
of his best parts; natural in tone and coloring, never
overstrained nor melodramatic His playfulness in the
early scenes, and his lightness and gaiety throughout the
prologue, are placed in strong and artistic contrast with
the touching sufferings which be endures when he meets
his daughter, after fifteen years of ignominious imprison
ment, a broken-down, and prema’urely-aged man. In the
later acts, his impersonation of the character is the very
embodiment of tenderness and dramatic power, toned
down strictly to nature. Mrs. Hoey, as Helen Fortescue,
has found a part exact ly and peculiarly suited to her pow
ers ; or else she has, with marvellous malleability, adapt
ed heiself to its peen iir requisi’i ms. In her hands, the
character is a dramatic gem Mi-s Henriques as Eveline
Rochford contributed innch. by her delicate and natural
acting, to the great success which the p ay has achieved
Mr. Mark Smith's Brackenbury is also excellent in make up
and in the acting. The part is one or that class—the Old
."English Gentleman, though a faded one—in which Mr.
Smith takes especial deli ent, ano in which he has no supe
rior on our boards Mr. Norton as Longley, nas but little to
do, but he does it artistically. Wt do nut know when we
have seen Mr. Floyd when he acted more to our satisfac
tion. As Sir Gerald he is the polished scoundrel of fash
ionab'e life, thoroughly polite, selfish and debased Mrs.
Jennings, in the character of J/r#. Rochford, confirmed the
promise which she has heretofore made, and we cannot
but regret that we saw so little of her in the drama. In
our next issue, we shall again refer to “Pure Gold,” and
shall remedy any deficiencies of the present notice. It
will be acted again on Mondav. Wednesday and Friday
evenings; and on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday,
will be given.
Niblo’s Theatre.—Mr. Wheatley has
ye engaged Mrs. and Mr. Williams for two weeks from to
morrow evening. Their engagement was to have termi
nated yesterday, but the “ Connie Soogah,” continuing to
be a magnet of f avor, it is still to be kept upon the stage
for the time stated above. The present season has been a
most satisfactory cne to the. management and artists,
the house having been packed on every evening and seats
having been secured for days in advance.
The Richtngs’ troupe will succeed Era. and Mr. Williams,
with English opera On Friday n ght next Mr • Charles
Gayloo, the author of the “Connie Soogah” will take a
benefit at this house. We have no doubt but that the
honse will be filled, rain or shine.
Old Bowery—At no time do we re
member to have seen the Old Drury in such a full tide of
unequivocal success since that happy period when the
•venerable Thomas Hamblin ruled the destinies of the
house. Hundreds are turned away nighily from the door
by the display of the card, “Stalling Room Only,” or
“All Full.” which the management is com jelled to hang
upon the “outward walls,” ana yet fir ah that “the cry is
still they come,” as we have no‘doubt will continue to be
She case so long as “ The House that lack Built” is continued
upon its stage. We have already given a rather elaborate
notice of the play in all its prominent particulars, and
therefore little now is left to be said except to record its
well merited success. The pub ic have a fancy for this
character of pantomime as i’. recalls m any of the sweet
est recollections and associatio's of youth, and will in
consequence support it at all times in a manner but sel
dom demonstrated, as in the present instance.
New Bowery Theatre.—Last Friday
bight Miss Kate Fishtr took her farewell benefit, which
•was an immense proof of the very high estimation In
which she is hell by the public. As this was her fare
well we suppose we are to dispense with the pleasure of
her company at pjesent, bit may welcome her soon
again; in the mealtime the management of the New
Bowery is preparing a fea-t of good thing! for their pa
trons which our space this week will not permit us to par
ticularise; we must, therefore, refer all interested to our
amusement column.
Or Jdignet’s Theatre Francais we
have to chronicle another week of genuine success. The
worthy manager has volunteered to give an ex ra per
format ce next Tuesday event.>g for the benefit of the
■ Society de Bimfaiesance with the highly amusing “LesCano
liers.de la Seine” as one of the attractions. Oa Thursday
evening next Madam L. Pelletier will be the re itpient of
a benefit, when Emile Angier’s ' Les Fils de Giboyer” will
be given.
Barnum’s American Museum. —“ Hal
vei, or the Galley Slave of Toulon,” introduced to the pub
lic on the s f age of this house on last Mondav night has met
with such unqualified success that it will be continued
another week when it will be withdrawn for some other
attraction. Mr. Harrison, the comic and imiromotu sing
er, the Tyrolean whistler, the giants, the pigmies and
the ether at’ractions to see any one of which is worth the
price of admission, fills this very popular place of amuse
ment and instruction day and night
Park Theatre. Brooklyn-.—The Eng
llsh Opera Company, under the management of Mr. Har
rison, will repeat the “ Bohemian Girl,” at this house, to
morrow night and on Thursday evening, give for the first
time, “ Fra Diavalo.” Miss Fanny Herring has taken a
lease of this house for a season of three nights—namely :
lor Tuesday, Friday and Saturday of the present week.
She will appear in a selection of her most popular char
acters, and will be supported, with the permission of Mr.
Fox, of the Old Bowery Theatre, by the leading talent of
his company. We hope to see the house full on each oc
casion. Miss Herring is a most deserving actress, and
should be countenanced in all her undertakings, bv the
public.
Chickering’s Rooms, Broadway.—Mrs.
Henry C. Watson gave her second private soiree at the
above place last Tuesday evening. The entertainment
consisted of a series' of poetic and dramatic recitations,
with vocal illustrations, which added much to the effect
produced. The readings were from Shakspere, Tenny
son, Poe, and others, to all of which Mrs. Watson did
ample justice, to the entire satisfaction of her friends,
among whom we noticed quite a number of gentlemen
prominent in belles lettres, critics, and members of the
press. Mrs. Watson’s voice was rather tremulous and
uncertain, and consequently unpleasant to the ear, at
first (doubtlessly occasioned by agitation), but, further
than this, very musical, and fully under her control.
Her gesticulations were easy and natural; in truth, she
nicely “suited the action to the word,” and, in conse
quence, produced all the natural and legitimate effects—
a result out seldom accomplished by one of limited expe
rience. In every respect, Mrs. Watson did as well as ex
pected. ______________
Broadway Amphitheatre.—The past
week was the last of the Bcdoin AraCson account of Eu
ropean engagements entered into, and consequently to
be filled, much to the regret of ihepuolicin general and
manager Lent in particular To make amends for this
deficiency, however, we are to have several new features
at this establishment that will fully satisfy the public on
this point, viz : the grand hmdle act of the Trained Buf
falo, a noveltv in cirquedration never before heard of.
This animal, which is huge in dimensions performs all
sorts of running and jumping feats such as heretofore has
only been accomplished by the best trained horses, and
"which one might well consider impossible. Besides
which the educated Sacred Bull from Hindostan which it
is a«serted performs such extrnordinary tricks and feats
that one is almost led to suppose it t> be endowed with
human intelligence. Thus it will be seen that Manager
Lent is quite equal fo ar y and every emergency in his
effort to cater for the public amusement
Broadway Menagerie.—Mr. Frost
may well be proud of the able manner in which he has
conducted the affairs of this house, for »e are confident
that the managerial record does net contain an instance
of such undeviating success as has attended his efforts.
We had the pleasure recently of seeing the white oea
cocks, and can truthfully say that without exception they
are the most beauti ul things that wear feathers—with
the exception of women—in creation It is worth the orice
of admission to see them alone, independent of the thou
sand and one other animal curiosities which are here ex
hibited.
Howe’s Bowery Circus.—Mr. Howe
we see is to favor us with another week of M’lle Marietta
Ravel’s unrivalled perf-nuance on the tight rope. This
is a very commendable movement on the part of the man
agement of this house, as in no case have the audience
here been so truly astounded and delighted as they have
recently been with MHe Ravel’s fight rope feat’s Mr.
John Denier we see s al«o te be retained, and with quiie
as much reason too, as the enthusiastic applaise of the
audience en< h nigne ceclans. in a word, .10»ve’s Circus
is in the full tide of success and deservedly so.
Perham’s Mirror of the Rebellion.—
If any doubt had heretofore existed as to the success of
Mr. Perham's undertakng. it must ha e long since been
■exercised by th?, magic influence of the beautiful Btereos
copian views now on exhibition at St Nicholas Hall,
Breadway. for without the slightest shadow of exaggera
tion we can say, that beyond the threshold 01 reaflty there
ns nothing thso nesrlv approach 8 the real In nature and
■ ln ?TJ as these views: thev are 'rub- beautiful, and when
exhibited i. conjunction witi the life-like sc<n.is of the
.Mirror vt tne ReoUiiou, as they now are. no more chaste
and commendable sort of amusement exists at present in
cur city. Let the public make a note or this.
Mrs. Methua Scheller will appear
firstat the Boston Theatre on the 2d of March and the
other “off” nights of Mr Forrest in her idyillc charactr-r
©‘ Loriie— a drama in five a' , 's, with sones, it appears that
this talented la-iy has become weary in wai;i..g ror the
Ticket of Leave Man’ to take his ticket of leave from
the theatre in this city. We have no doubt but that she
will hit (and hit strongly) the tastes of the fastidious Bos
tonians.
Lecture on Love.—We notice with
■pleasure, that Mrs. Sarah A. Wright, a lady of conside*a-
Jble prominence in literature. ann< uncs her intentions of
leading a Lecture on Love, on Tr.es fuy the 18th inst., at
2<o. 4 Carrol Place (Bleecker street). From what we
know of Mrs. Wright’s productions, we are under the im
greMionjhat the Lecture will fully meet the expectations
Museum of Anatomy.—This exhibi
tion is worthy of the patronage of all intelligent inquir
ers into the mysteries of nature.. At no other place,
can the yeung man obtain so much genuine instruction
tor so small a sum At the Museum of Anatomy, the won
ders of pathology are presented in a language which none
can misunderstand.
SCRAPS. MUSICAL ANO DRAMATIC.

U er ’ w cu.d not be much out ot place, as
in ih? ot what has since been transpiring
Sinn here. Tne fates have smiled
fni? hAui r e na * er v. aad , with a genial atmosphere and
full hotels, have each night seen—lf not a golden—at least
a green harvest pouring into their iron chests.
At the varieties Theatre, the large*t v eek’s income ever
known to the establishment—the Mazeppa of Miss Kate
Vance creating a whirlwind of enthusiasm and overcrowd
°?r sc ni Shtly—was that ending Feb. 6th. To say
that Miss Vance achieved merely a success, would be do
ing that lady rank injustice. It was more than a success
—it was a triumph I Every night witnessed an ovation,
and that repeated at the termination of each act! Never,
since the establishing of the drama in St Louis, has any
thing like this last week’s tribute of the people to the ge
nius of the iair artist and equestrienne, been known or
dreamed of. The recognized critics of St. Louis, pro
nounce her the only Mazeppa on tne stage. The present
week anew melo Drama is upon the boards, written by
Mi. J. 11. Rogers, and entitled “Pauline of the Potomac ;
or, General McClellan’s Female Spy ” The author design
ed it especially to bring out the versatile characteris:ic» of
Miss Vance, and has given her four marked characters.
“Pauline D’Estraye,” the Spy. being the more prominent.
I can only say, in m v present writing, that the piece has
been a success Miss Vance fully greeting the apprecia
tion of all, in the role assumed by her. on Tuesday, Fri
day and Saturday nights, we are to have a repetition of
Mazeppa. This is in compliance, by the management,
with the request of hundreds The coming Saturday
afternoon, a grand day performance is to be given, for
the benefit of our sick and wounded soldiers. Th.se
Family Matinees are becoming immensely popular, on
last Saturday, there was an audience present, numbering
over 1500, and comprising the very elite and fashion of the
city. 1 understand that the reserved seats lor the coming
patriotic occasion,are going off rapidly.and i hat a crowded
house is. already, no longer a mere supposition. Mrs C.
J. Foster, at this establishment, is becoming a favorite.
She is now appearing in farce, and last night made a de
cided hit as “Nancy Strap” in “ The Pleasant Neighbor.”
Anew and unique dance, by Miss Kate Pennoyer, en
titled “La de Grazilla,” is taking with a furore. The
horse “Don Juan ” is still growing in favor with the peo-
Sle. 11 is intelligence, and the perfect manner in which
e goes through his various difficult roles, is most wonder
ful
At the St Louis the Wallack, Davenport and Farren
con bination still holds the seats of that house at a pre
mium. - Julius Ciesar ’ and ‘Money” have been pro
duced this week, while the play of ‘St. Mark” is an
nounced for this evening, In connection with ” Faint Heart
never won Fair Lady ” The seats lor the opera season,
commencing next Mo’day night are soiling wi h a vim,
and at. greatly advanced prices It is to be hoped that Mr.
Grau s advent here will re awaken enough interest among
cur lovers of opera to lead to the cieation of a building in
St Louis—long since contemplated—which will oe an or
nament to the city,and fully adapted to the production of
legitimate opera. The Bowery is doing a good business,
The “ Sj ro Arabic Tioupe’’ and a new Ethiopian star—Mr.
Charles Gardner—being the attractions. At Mercantile
Library nothing has been doing through thi week. The
German dramatic company at Wyman's Hall are still
flourishing, giving from two to four performances each
week to large auoiences There is a perfect lermentof
excitement here in relation to Idahoe, and the immigra
tion Hiis Spring to That far off region of golden promise
will be one oi tne largest ever known from this point.

rather interesting cases were t«ied in this -Jourt this

was arraigned on the charge of dborderlv conduct, that is
the offence tor which a man is tried in this Court who is
alleged to have abandoned his wife and family. The ma
trimonial life of this couple does not seem to have been of
the happiest character and yet strange to say on the
trial not a family ja or angry word was sworn to have
been said by either to the other. On that point all that
plaintiff said was that her husband told her he was going
to leave her and she said “well,’' and he packed up his

even if he was black that was no reason why the defend

The trial of Mary McGarvin, a mere child, not quite
thirteen years ol age, brought to light one of the most ex
traordinary eases of precocious uepravby ever seen in
this court. George W Heller the complainant, who
keeps a jewelry store at No 217 Grand stret t. testified that
she banoJeu the goods with an adroitne-s in 11 ting drop
ping and lilting the lockets and disarranging them till an
opp rtunity ofleied itself to transfer one to her poctet,
that sstonisht d him. She came in her rags and wanted to
see some lockets. He told her that they had none but four
teen shilling ones, when the line thing said, very inno
certly, that she wanted larger and better ones. He to >k
his locket drawer out and placed it on the counter, with
which her chin was little more thwi on a level, and she
picked up a little locket with her finger and thumb,
looked at it, then dropped it picked up another in tne
same manner, but in dropping this she very adroity
picked up a larger one with her little finger, which she
pressed to the hollow of her hand and transferred to her
pocket. Not satisfied with that, she took a second locket,
when the jeweler went around the counter and tol l tier
to give the locket up. when she dropped it on the floor.
Be ordered her to give the other locket up, when she
put her hand in her pocket drew out a piece of tin foil to
bacco about thn size of the locket, and threw it from her,
but it happened to fall on the shelving on the other side
of the counter, infull view, and the jeweler seeing it. saw
it was not his locket she had thrown from her. order id
her again to give it up, and this time she snowed it in her
hand and flung it to the back part of the store. She ttien
ran out oi the store followed bv the Jeweler, who caught
her by the cloak, but the fas'ening at the neck, no doubt
made purposely, gave way. and she fled on, leaving the
cloak in the jeweler's baud, who could not lose sight of
his store to arrest her. Shortly a’ter the youngster came,
minus her hood and apron which she had stowed in her
pocket, and said that the girl that had been there some
time ago to purchase a locket, had sent her tor her cloak.
The dedge, however, of this prodigy in crime did not take.
The jeweler recognized her, and she was handed over to
the custody of a policeman Upon 4 convi nion the Court
very wisely sent her to the House of Refuge, where she
will be away from bad home influences.
A Nice Husband to Have.— A dis
gusting picture of life in and around Red Hook, one of the
Democratic strongholds of the city of Brooklyn, was pre
sented recently in the court of Justice John Q. Adams.
On complaint ot one Alexander Staats, a local celebrity
of the Eighth Waid, a man named John Sharp, residing
in 15th street, was brought up for an attempted abandon
ment of his wife. It is shown that Sharp is a half-witted
yeast peddler, who endeavored to raise, a living in that
way, and failed; that Staats and others were in the habit
ot giving him money to keep himself and family, and that
he took all the preliminary measures for deserting his
wile in order to avoid supporting her. Among other acts,
it is shown that he looked upon Staats as a very particu
lar friend, and on this ground offered him theffreedom of
his bed. “if his wife was willing ” Staats swears that he
did not avail himself of this unusual generosity, while
the answer of Sharp makes it appear that tha former was
m the habit of coming to his house at night and forcing
him to sleep on a lounge in the same room, alone, while
the intruder and Sharp’s wife occupied the bed. As
Staats had formerly been so friendly, Sharp did not ob
ject ; and, the arrangement appearing mutually agree
able to Mrs. Sharp and Staats, the latter was a frequent
visitor. Sharp also swears that Staats would occasion
ally add insult to injury, by sending him after beer, and
yvhen he returned he would find the doors locked, and
there he would be kept sometimes for nearly an hour,
until Staats emerged and departed. This the other de
nies in toto. Judge Adams heard the conflicting testi
mony, and dismissed the case. It appears a little won
derful that Mrs. Sharp, who looks yvell enough to be
sharp, should desire the aid of that poor, demented yeast
pot of a husband. As showing one style of the morality
oi the city of churches, the above is interesting, but other
wise its details are very disgusting.
A Dodge Which Didn't Succeed.—
Since Controller Faron declined to pay the Brooklyn
Police, he appears to have taken a sober second thought
on the subject; but, in order not to compromise his dig
nity, and at the same time to save the standing, if possi
ble of Gov. Seymour’s Police Commissioners, agreed with
at least one of those delectable gentlemen to wait upon
the Police Commissioners proper at the Mulberry street
headquarters, and see if they could not be got to frame
an application for the money to be paid over, to Mr. Ber
gen. as the representative of Brooklyn in the Board of
Commissioners. Accordingly, the new Brooklyn Com
missioner (formerly State Treasurer) went fo head
quarters to seek relief from their awkward dilemma, so
that the Democratic members of the Brooklyn police
force might not be offended at the Controller’s refusal to
pay, and Mr. Lewis’s supposed complicity with the Con
troller in that refusal; but they received no comfort at
I’olice Headquarters. Messrs Acton and Bergen didn’t
see it. And so the two Brooklyn officials returned to the
Brooklyn City Ball, via Phil. Grogan’s. Immediately
upon their arrival, they received the information that
the Farmers’and Citizens’ Bank of Williamsburgh had
decided to pay the police force and wait lor the money.
There is not a solitary policeman in Brooklyn who has
not laid up wrath against “ the day of judgment” for the
two gentlemen who have thus checkmated themselves,
by doing a very mean thing to a great many innocent
families.
A Lover in the Bedroom.—la the
City Court of Brooklyn last week, Judge Reynolds presi
ding, a divorce case came up for a hearing. Wm. Hsuiion
sues Mary Bannon for divorce, on the ground of adultery.
The complaint sets forth thattr-e parties were married on
the 25th September. 1863, and had lived in Red Hook evrt
since : that on the 26th day ot December last, the nusoand
announced that he should proceed to his work and be gone
a week; that he returned tne next night and found the
house Jocktd ; he raised a disturbance, and was finally
admitted by the wife On searching the apartment, he
found one Daniel Hayes secreted in the bedroom, an 1 he
calk d in a lodger in tne same hou e to witness him also.
With the basest ingratituce, Hayes acknowledges that his
relations with Mrs. Hannon have been more familiar than
they should have been ; and Morris Hanley, who was
called in to witness Hayes, recognized him at the trial as
the man hidden in the bedroom. The wife denies the
adultery, but Recounts for the presence of Hayes in
her apartment, by the fact that he frequently came to the
house of anight to drink whisky, and that finding the
door open that ni<tht, he entered nut a tew minutes before
her husband arrived. She claims the whole tning as
trumped up by her husband who has become too lazy to
support her. Case adjourned for more testimony.

lice Station, upon the body of Catharine Muller, aged 8
years, daughter of Mr. Henry Muller, Jersey City. The
child, who was residing with her grandfatner, at No. 145

Close of the Cora Hatch McKinley
Case.— Last Wednesday, the counsel for John H. McKin
ley moved for a dismissal of the complaint against his
client, on the ground that the meeting which .young
McKinley had disturbed was not a religious assembly ;
but the elder McKinley pressed the suit, and stated that
the doctrines which Cora Hatch preaches are the religion
of three millions of Americans, and he, therefore, con
tended that the meeting was of a religious character, and
hence came within the statute. Mrs. Cora L. V. Hatch
was in court, but she had nothing to offer. Young McKin
ley promised to molest his father no further, and Justice
Dowling dismissed the complaint.
Female on the Rampage..—On last
Tuesday afternoon, Kate Elizabeth Arnold, of Houston
street, near Wooster, attempted to shoot Andrew Phillips,
of No. 121 Fulton st, while oppo-ite Barnum’s Museum.
A boy saw her level a pistol at Mr. Phillips’s head, struck
it aside, and, before she could take aim again, Officer
Hays escorted her to the police station Going thither,
Phillips declined to enter complaint, and begged the
officers to dismiss the erring female, and they did so. As
she departed, she threatened to shoot Phillips on the first
opportunity, in the event of his refusal to retract some
slander which she alleges he has circulated to the dam
age of her name.
Fatal Accident.—Mrs. Matilda Hoff
man, of No. 74 Henry sh eet, was run over on the 6th inst.,
at the intersection of Henry and Market streets, by a horse
which was ridden by a yourg man to her unknown. Her
head and body were severely cut ana bruised, and she was

known, who carelesdy drove his horse over the deceased.
The police are in search of the offender. Mrs Hoffman

Boyle, a Catholic Priest, who was found dean in his bed.
Dr. Wooster Beach. Jr., made a post mortem examina
tion, and discovered evidences of intemperance, and
from the appearance of the brain, the doctor inferred

The dominant element in Brooklyn has be°n for years
the church influence. With a Nevv England population
two-thirds of its entire inhabitants, and the remaining
one-third of ancient Knickerbocker descent, rhe Puri
tan and the Dutch Reformed churches are the powers
that be in our sister city. Until within a \ear, the reign
of the pulpit has- been undisturbed: but with the com
pletion of the Academy of Music its almost immediate
“demoralization” into a theatre and horse-show, wi h
the nauseating addendum to the Brooklyn people of
Camille and Cubas, a rebellion of the worldly portion of
the people was recognized, and every effort has since i
been made to put down the ungodly demonstrations of 1
this class. Things were going on swimmingly when Mr. |
B. T. Benton, an enterprising citizen, built what is now
the Park Theatre, and Hoolev established a successful I
establishment for the manufacture of burnt cork comic- :
alities and minstrelsy.
The lesult is, that lhe “hemisphere” is now pretty ;
equally divided between the devotees of psalm tunes :
ano the supporters of tne opera and drama. Under ten se
clashing interests the time arrived for a Sanitary Fair.
Bost'n and Cincinnati has fairs and Ne w York is gomg
to therefore the go« d people of dr'Oklyn determined to
go in and r 11 up a benefit for the. fund of the U S. Sant
tary Commission, which should not disgrace the third ;
cityot the Union. Rev Dr. Forbes was placed at the ;
Ik ad of the officers, subcommittee* were appointed on
benefits refreshments, reli :s etc Under the impulse of
patriotism and printer’s irk donations begando pour in;
everything from elephant s tushes to crochet work wa-i
built or building for the occasion, when the church peo I
pie and the crinolined old gentlemen who tow them
around ciscovered an abomination which would nave
struck terror to the soul or A mini iab Sleek, it' he had
one. The awlul intelligence was bruted about that som« !
of the worldings ot the refreshment committee proposed i
to conduct a first class restaurant atrthe Academy during
the Fa’r. and that money was to be realized by the sale
ot iniquitous porter house steaks, impious prairie chick
ens and Satanic champasne. The startled hymn oook
called an emergency meeting the result of which was I
that a resolution was passed requesting Mr Lowber, chair
man of the refreshment committee to discontinue any j
such preparations. Tnereupon Lowber threatened to re
sign, and his committee decided to follow suit. One tern- I
perance gentleman agreed to take the large 'ot of
brandy, champage, etc., etc , which had been donated, i
at retail prices, and the church interest carried the day.
Grumbling ensued, however, an I there is no man- !
ner ot doubt but that more than considerable has been ;
subtracted frem the fund for the soldiers by the fastidi
ousness of those who are too “strict” to allow a gentleman 1
to drink a boitle of wine to the success of the Army of the ;
Potomac The Lidies’ Ccmmittee passed a vote of confl- i
dence in Lowber, and if he has the har iitmod to stand i
his ground the squabble will boa very lovely illustration
of the persistence of propensities and professions
■ But this is not all; m addition, an imbroglio quite a* se I
rious is present* d regarding the aflle question The ■
Committee want the money to b. realized never so badly,
but then the immorality—you know. Why. h it not bad
enough for individual churches to raffle off goods of all
kinds, and lottery oft cakes at fabulous prices for mani
kin pieces, becauses,me one is said to contain an imagi
nary ring of great value? This is done fjr the church,
but for the soldiers it would be very wicked Besides the
orthodox people do not like to have other denominations
know that they countenance an direct or indirect gam
bling .
To strengtlun their position the anti raftleites summon
ed before the Committee recently a Mr. Hopkins, who. as
a head man in the Cincinnati Fair, was for the time quite
a celebritv. He stated that at the. porkopolis every taole
was allowed to be its own judge in the matters of lotteries
and raffles Some ladies indulged in them, others es
chewed all chance games. The result was that the anti
lottery people had 'till tables near the close, and were
glad to nave others take the goods, raffle them, and return
them the money. Thus stands the fair with bad bio'd
aroused, and likely to remain so In Cincinnati it was
different. The denominational feeling was kept down, so
that when on the Saturday night previous to the opening
Monday it was found the buildings were not complete, a
brigade of Jews were worked all day Sumi ay, Saturday
being their Sabbath, and Hius his Satanic Majesty was agi
tateo around the stump. Next week will settle the whole
matter, as one week from to-morrow there will be a grand
opening. Besides the Academy of Music, two large tem
porary buildings have been erected, and a sort of cover d
bridge of sighs thrown over Montague street, from tlie
lyric temple to one of these temporary boarding establish
ments. Such is the patriotic fervor of the people, that a
grand success will result, notwithstanding the efforts ot
old grannies to prevent
CASH IN HAND.
There is joy in the hearts of the police force of Brook
lyn, and jingle in their pockets, (hey were paid for their
January services on Thursday last by funds furnished by
the Farmers’ and Citizens’ Bank of VVilliamsburgh, on the '
personal recognisance of the Slate Treasurer. Thi- course
was rendered necessary by the refusal of Comptroller
Faron (copperhead), to pay, as usual, the money needed
for the month, a little over $15,000. That official claims
that, as the old Commissioners have been rem ved they
should notact, and as the old ones arc yet in power, the
new ones have no right to receive this inouey, and there
fore. the paltry, pretended plea that the city might lose
the money. He is welcome to this dog-in the manger pro
cedure ; it is not unexpected from a radical-ideal Breck
inbridge Democrat like the Comptroller. But without
thanks to the careful gentleman, the police are paid what
they have honestly earned, a d will continue to be, until
Legislative action shall have placed city comptrollers in
a powerless position in the premises

MUNICIPAL REFORM EFFORT.
The upper ten of Brooklyn, or rather South Brooklyn
are now* on the alert for a politl al re'orm Several meet
ings have been held, in which the Third and sixth Wards
have been fully represented by some of their very best
min. and an association cal ed the Municipal R fforin As
sociation of Brooklyn. has been termed. The immediate
cause which called this movement into exi-tence, was the
attempt to put the Ridgewood railroad, a semi-transparent
swindle, through certain portions ef Brooklyn Hi'tits.
The association will undoubtedly take an important place
in the canvass of next Fall.
THE HARMONIOUS TRIANGULARS.
The Democracy of Kings, which always moved to vic
tory like Napoleon s Old Guard, has at last found a Water
loo. It is divided, demented, demoralized and practically
defunct. The nexteainpaign will find three organizations
of the party in the field—first, the Union Democrats or 1
Regular Douglas; second, the National Regular Demo ;
crats or Breckinridge;’and third, the Democratic Union
or Small-Kalbfleischites. Each can poll about 60D9 votes.
They hate one another cordially, and w hen the scramble
comes lor crumbs next Fall there will be as pretty a Kil
kenny fight among them as ever was witnessed in old Ire
land. The result is as plain as anything in the future can
be—the Union Republicans will carry the day unless they, !
too, split their forces and divide their strength. The •
Breckinridge and Small General Committees organized
last week.
AN OLD LAW REVIVED.
Here is a word of warning to the women: henceforth
Caudle lectures will go below par, and husbands coming
home late from “ the lodge or a s hie rriend,” can find a
ready quietus to the feminine tongue by consulting Jus
tice Perry. Last week, on complaint of Mrs. Mary Ann j
Lavin, an almost forgotten law was revived, by which a
tonguev kind of a crinolied genius named Mary Creed,
cf no. 29 North Ninth street, Brooklyn, was sent before '
the Grand Jury as a common scold. The complaint reads !
th. t Mary • has been and is a common nuisance, to wit— i
a common scold: that she quarrels with, chides, ra’es and ;
rails with ill humor, upon and against divers persons, in
a clamorous, rude and vulgar manner, to the disturbance
of the public peace ” Mrs Creed, who is about forty
veais of age, with a Xantippean aspect, was produced in
C<urt, and under the advice of friends she kept her un
ruly member still, and waiving examination gave bail in
the sum of $250 to await the action of the Grand Jury.

The Ball of ihe Arion Society, which
took place on Thursday evening at the Academy, was a
success in a pecuniary point of view : but it was a perfect
“jam,” ana dancing, after ten and before three o’clock,
was a matter nearly approaching to impossibility. The
Academy was brilliantly adorned and lighted. Beautiful
jets ot gas. at the extreme rear of the stage and over-the
throne of the Queen of the occasion, were made to form a
lyre, surrounded tfith a wreath and the name “Arion
the pas being so arranged as to burn in constant ripples.
Hoop skirts were suspended, at regular intervals, from the
upper tiers, with bottoms fitted into them of various
shapes, sizes, color and pattern ; thus making them re
semble bird cages. Around the fronts of the boxes were
continuous wreaths of flowers. In the arrangements a
great deal of taste and comic humor were displayed.
Blondin not having put in an appearance, Mr. Goetze apol
ogized, and said that rather than disappoint the audience,
be would eqdeavor to cross a rope which was stretched
fi om a second tier private box to one on the third tier.
This was hailed with shouts of applause : when forthwith
an effigy, strongly resembling Goetze, but very weak in
the Knees, was started on its perilous ascent amid shouts
of laughter and loud applause at its feats. On its arrival
at the upper box. it was drawn in and the original appear
ed. The latter wiped his forehead and bowed his thanks
for the applause, which was liberally bestowed. Then
came the perilous feat ot re crossing on the rope,
backwards, which was still more funny than the as
cent. We do not intend to even touch upon tne
various costumes of the visitors; for if we began,
we should not know where to stop, and could
easily fill this sheet with a descriptive list. The swell
head procession was excessively funny, as was also that
of the “ Sulphur Club :” but the attempt by the society to
sing—in burlesque—the soldiers’s chorus from “Faust”
was a f ailure. The orchestra and the vocalists were fear
fully out of joint: first one would lead as to time, and
then the other. We cannot estimate the number in at
tendance who were there : but some idea may be formed
w hen we say that the people present got on the outside of
1122 kegs of lager bier, and 1608 bottles of Rhine wine, to
say nothing of champaigns. Our personal adventures on
the occasion, can be ot but little interest to the public, yet
we feel constrained to say that we and our company were
summarily turned out of a private box, but were after
ward put in a better one through the courtesy of Mr.
Geotze, whom we thank for his attention; indeed, this
gentleman is deserving of high praise for his unremitting
labors in keeping order, and making the affair a success.
The regular Academy ushers also performed their duties
with great promptitude and courtesy. But some of the
supernumerary attendants were bears, devoid of common
civility, and deserving of being soundly kicked. There
was one member of the society, too. who is deserving of
the most severe left handed compliments. We do not
know his name; but if we did, should give him the benefit
of its publication, and an account of his more than boor
ishness We think that the society made a grave mistake
in selling so many tickets. If the admission fee had been
$5 instead of $3. and one third less of rickets sold, the
affair would have been much more successful, select and
acceptable.
Lindsey Blues.—The Eleventh. An-
Dual Ball of the Lindsey B ues took place last Thrrsdav
evening at Irving Hall. It should be remembered tho
“affairs” of the “Blues” are all invitation, gotten up, not
for the purpose of filling empty pockets, empty treasuries,
etc , but for the sole purpose of giving their nost of friends
an evening’s enjoyment, such as is not to be secured else
where or on any other occasion. In pursuance of this
object the ball was prepared, and the reception committee,
consisting of eleven members, among whom Lieut Thom
as Price (chairman.) Henry J. White, Charles H Hall, and
J. S. Toal figured most conspicuous, entered upon their
pleasant duty ot receiving the guests, observing the ut
most core that no interlopers might gain admission, yet
with such courtesy that none could take offense At
about ten P. M Grofulla’s band opened with the grand
entree march, and from that hour until an early one in the
morning the afiairwas one continuous course ol enjoyment,
uninterrupted by the slightest untoward circumstance.
This happy condition of 'things was owing to the able Of-
f '■■ lie i’.oorc m mlttee. con 'II3O of eleven k
ber.3, am; ng whom the chairman. Mr. Edgar A ftobe»
Sawue Wil.'on, u< o’ge Price, and Edwin s. Ri'chdercaru

and splendor of dre®-, for we have seldom seen

prepared was ad that coukl be desired, boih io quantity
and quality: immediately after which the band favored
tin guests with a verv able musical composition by .Ur, C.
» Grotulla (the leader,) called bindsey Blu *8 Quickstep,
i which reflected the highest credit upon the co nposer. in
' a void, the “ Blues” really exceed themselves on this oc
ca>ieo, and if their ponularitv increase.-, as there is now
every pros) ect, they wi'l certainly have to secure the

Eciieiie Coterie—The third sociable
of the fourth season of the Eclectic Coterie took place last
Tuesday evening at She esidence of Mr." Charles Groves,
No. —St Mark’s Place This is an affair which trie cho<en

interest and' great anticipation of enjoyment: and (te
st ivedly so for it- being strictly private and rattier ex
exclusive, tne company thus assembled pariook- of a cor*
responding character and chaste enjoyment (unraarred
by the annoyances common to all public afi’airt) w?>s the
natural result. To say that rhe »ft nr was managed in the
most approved manner in alt its details, would be simply
to acknowlecge what every one present declared. As
usual, the ladies present prese: ted, all that exquisite
taste in dress which repudiates gaudy show, giving
f the gieater attention to personal appearance and re
• finement of manner as the »e pile* ultra of feminine loveli
j ness. i'he gentlemen did allin their power to evince their*
. appieciation of the above facts and thus succeeded in

gSmit imvn,
There seems to be plenty of money
in the hands of the people—where it should be,
and not hoarded up in banks—and judging from
the throngs that visit once, twice, three tunes
each day that excellently conducted saloon, at
No. 74 Chatham street, over which that expe
rienced and gentlemanly provider of good things,
8. H Crook, presides, they are resolved on “liv
ing while they live,” or until this “ cruel war is
over.” By the way, Crook’s hotel is an A 1 estab
lishment.
If a gentleman would feel comforta
ble in that part of his body which crowns his
necK, he should make a daily, tri, semi, or weekly
visit to the Hair-Dressing, Bathing and Shaving
Saloon, corner of Dey street and Broadway.
A hungry man will find Barney’s
Dining Saloon, at No. 113 N.-ssau street, just the
place to get a first-class meal. At no other res
taurant in the city are dishes served or meats
more neatly prepared for mastication.
The choicest cigars and the purest
wines and other liquors are to be had at the
Westchester Exchange Saloon, corner of the
Bowery and Broome street. It is enough to say,
to insure those who call a good time, that it is
presided over by Fuller & Brother.
Valentines.—To day St. Valentine
reigns supreme throughout Christendom, and
the little god Cupid shoots his barbed arrows
into the tender hearts of both sexes, regardless
of age, beauty, or position. T. W. Strong, of
No. 98 Nassau street, is the regular appointed
Agent Extraordinary for this city, and as the
Saint.holds high court throughout the entire
week, all will have a chance to select a love mis
sive from his beautiful stock of valentines.
Sam Kellinger, of the Monument
House, No. 6 Union Square, is famous for his
dinners—particularly his game ones. Give him
a call when you feel like enjoying yourself, and
take your friends with you.
The largest and most stylish assort
ments of silver-plated ware, cutlery, etc., etc.,
can be found at the house-furnishing store of E.
D. Bassford, Cooper Institute, Astor Place. La
dies would do well by giving him a call.
Trusses, &c.—Marsh & Co.’s Radical
Cure Truss office only at No. 2 Vesey street. Also,
Supporters, Suspensory Bandages, Silk Elastic
Stockings for Verieose Veins, Shoulder Braces,

Still in that good men pursue;
Honest reputation gilding
Every gracious deed you do;
While the Moon its horns shall fill,

Drawing daily still toward Heaven;
All the emblems glowing ’round you
For that very purpose given—
While the Moon its horns shall fill,

May your growing never cease
While there is a vice to chasten,
Or a sorrowing heart to bless 1 (

The Veteran Wadsworth.—At a regu
lar meeting of Wadsworth Lodge, No 417, held on the 11th -
day of November, 1863, the following preamble and reso
lutions were unanimously adopted: F
M /ureas. The solemn notes 11 ia,c betoken the dissolution £
of this earthly tabernacle have again alarmed our outer *
door, and again we have listened to
“ the bell with solemn toll
Which speaks the departure of a soul,”
and another brother lias been summoned to the lajid
where our fathers have gone before us, and
whereas. It becomes us as brethren of the mystic tie”
to express, in fitting language, the deep sorrow we feel
tor the loss of him who has gone to ‘ that bourne from
whence no traveler returns,.’* therefore
Hcfohed, Thai we feel deeply the loss we have sustained
in the death o our well-beloved brother. Right Worship
ful Ebenezer Wadsworth, who, for more than hajf a cen
tal y. has been identified with all that concerned the best - r
interests of Masonry, and to. whose instructive tongue tho '■
attentive ear bath often listened with pleasure to the
hearer and profit to the cratt.
Resolved. That in the death of Bro. Wadsworth this
Lodge has lost its most honored and revered member, and
the iraternity one of its brightest ornaments, and we may
truthfully say that our loss is irreparable*, lor “ we no’er
shall look upon his like again.” ■
Resolved, That we sympathize with ths surviving rela
tives of our deceased brother in their afflictive bereave
ment, and trust that “ He who tempers the wind to the
shorn lamb” may look down with infinite compassion.on
the widow and fatherless in the hour of their desolation.
Resolved, That we bow in humble submission tikthe will
of “Him who doeth all things well,” and here pledge
ourselves anew to maintain with greater assiduity the
dignified character ot our pro fession, and to the.inculcation
and practice of those truly commendable virtues which
have made Masonry honored wherever civilization, is
That as a further taken of our respect for tho
memory of the departed, the Jewels and Implements of
the Lodge be draped in mourning far the space of six
months.

A. M.—A very fine affair, at the room of the above lodge, |
took place oh Wednesday evening, Feb. 1) An eloquent 1

o> Resolutions elegantly engrossed and framed, to W.
Bro. Jno. C. Larwill, as a mark of the regard of his breth
pen for his services as Master during the past year. Bro.
J. C. Parr was also presented with a set of resol Lions,
beautifully engrossed and framed, for valuable vol intary
!’ services as Organist for the lodge. The presenrations

was the order until the “ wee sma’hours,” interrupted
i Attiv by out? of Eajw’s wh;c’i wa?
- served at 11 o’ciock.
? Somebody, in a female hand, has tried
our patience with a dozen stanzas, of which the following
are specimen bricks. It the Craft in fAtrf lady’s vicinity
can get “ cigars, oysters and wit-e” at tbsfr* louge in these
, hard times, we win thank them to make’ us air iaonorary
member forthwith!
“Oh, what do they do at the Lodge so Tate?
Oh,.v hy do they tarry so long ?
To smoke the cigar.
And poison the.ir hair.
And to drink what is naughty and strong.
Oh, why do they go to t?>e Lodge so much,
Oh, why do thev hurry t’rom home ?
To guzzle and dine
On oysters and wine, ” ate., etc.
This will be intelligence to our 1 eaders.— Voice of Ma-e
