Four performances will be given at the menag
erie to-morrow, and three on each enocoeding
day during the week, Signor Victor (eclucrted
in Italy), the paragon of monkeys, and all the
other performing animate attached to the insti
tution, v-ill at each exhibition display their na
tive and acquired graces for the edification of
visitors. I‘uienta and guardians wishing to give
the little ones under their care, a really gratify
ing and instructive treat, cannot do better than
take them to Van Ambnrgb’s, where is to be
seen the largest elephant in Europe or America;
the only giraffe that has been in this country for
years; a mother dromedary and a baby dromo
dary : the ferocious Polar bear; the huge griz
zly ; the cinnamon, and a whole family of sloth
bears ; the beautiful royal Bengal tiger; lions of
all »gcs ; the zebra, the bison, and the elk; leop
ards and hyenas ; a whole wilderness of monkeys,
with a Leet of other interesting epecimens of the
animal kingdom too numerous to mention in a
newspaper paragraph. Twenty-five cents enti
tles the*visitor to a view of the whole mammoth
collection, and all the performances in addition.
The Mkddahh. —This elegant and
original entertainment was inaugurated on last
Tuesday evening by a private exhibition, which
was well received. On Thursday evening last
the public performances were commenced to a
full house. The Meddahh may therefore be
considered a success. The performances are of
a very peculiar, novel and original character and
convey a vivid idea of Eastern life. The scen
ery is new and elegantly painted ; the company
is large. The lecture is instructive, the dresses
are splendid beyond description, the dancing is
ravishing, and the Turkish music not only pecu
liar but pleasing and melodious in the extreme,
and is of itself a novelty well worth the price of
admission. We have a German and French
theatre; we naturally conclude that Oscanyan’s
Turkish Hall or Theatre will become more pop
ular in our midst.
Artemus Ward, much to our regret,
we are compelled to record this week, our fare
well to this genius of fan. who has during the

have an opportunity ot making glad the hearts
of other countries elsewhere, we are certain that
he will be a-s succeeseful and meet with as warm
a reception, and make a s many friends as he has
here. Joy go with him.
Museum of Anatomy. —We under
stand that in accordance with the prevalent cus
tom, there will bo unusual efforts made to make

dition, should not fail to visit it this wook.

. tcnOant are xnemliexs of the Union Association oi the
Fifteenth Ward, havnxg i‘n headquarters at No 34* Fourth
street. Mr. (ahrwetl. m his complaint states that ou the
night cf irecc-n l-er 9. the defendant took an active port
in the affairs of the Association contrary to the rules
which govei n the police force, and furthermore that 1 *te
In the evening bo incited ft not in the room, and that
, wh<ntbe police attempted to quell the disturoauce he
: teok ccnrn*aud cf them as their superior officer, and
■ caused the ejccticu of several persons, who differed with
i him in sentiment while those who agreed with him were
; allowed to remain.
i Mr. G. W. Clark, residing at No. 12u West Fourth street,
1 testified that he attended the. meeting on the night la
i question. A motion was macle that they go into ballet tor
a number of new members, whose names were, presented,
j Thia tt a-* violently < pposed by he defonaant, wao mad? a
; most inflamnifatoiy speech, denouncing the motion
: and ns author, and declaring that to his cart-da
■ tnewedge seme of the names then proposed were
those oi Democrats. He moved to the ma ter on
the table, thuscuttu g off all debate This wa« agreed
to with a yell by a number of rough characters who hid
been introduced into the meeting, but who were rot
members cf the Association. While the defendant was
speaking, star ding in front of him was a large, thick--et
man, with whom he sc* med tu have an aruleratanling;
for as soon as the yell commenced, in renponse to a next
from the defer dant. > e sprang Into the crowd, and struck
out right arc left. The police then interfered, and cleared
the room. The proceedings afterward were of an orderly
character, bubsequentiy the witness stated that he would
net swear posHivei.v that,’he nod was inf ant tor the rniu
above mentioned, but such was his impression.
Several other witnesses testified in subs’ance as above,
one of then, aedmg that he thought the police acted in a
very partial manner, under the orders ot the defendant,
in electing meinuers who had opposed his motion earlier
in the evening, but ns he was one of the persons ejected,
his statement n ust be taken with a grain of allowance.
Don Errstus C. Benedict, residing at No. W Tenth street,
testified that he entered the room while the defendant
was speaking. He spoke to the question in nis usual
ms dim r—quick and t mpbatic. While be was engaged in
speaking, some one near ihe door gave a 5 ell of denanoe.
It was answered at the other end uf tte room near where
the witness was stftT dirg Some men standing near the
desk < f the chairman sprang tow ard t’ne sound of the first
voice, and the row then became general. The police im
mediately interfered. a.cd order was soon restored Some
one said to we deftndant that, be had not acted right
Berejusred, “What I ave I done beyond what any citizen
has a right, to dor” lie taw the conduct cf the defendant
thrcupLout tie evening, ar.d saw nothing in it to censu e.
While speaking, it was in his usual tone when addressing
the mooting.
Hon. Frock rick A. Gonkb'ng. residing at No 103 Tenth
street, stated that lie hail heard the remark* of the pre
ceding witress, and could throw no additional light on the
subject.
Councilman Lent, who is President of the Association,
had heard the testimony of Mr. Boredict and concurred
lußy in his statements. He corrected it in one purticnlar.
The row was commenced while Mr. Conkling was speak
ing. That gentleman stated that ho had seen one of the
Police Commissioners aud made charges against the de
fondant, ard it lie had not already done so. the action uf
the deiendart during the evening would have justified
him in so doing Some one at tnc lower end of the room
said, referring to bilks’put tj •Throw the B—ps of b—s
not of the window ” Then it was the row commenced.
The action of the rolfce ard the defendant was fearless
and impartial. Ah in any manner engaged in the row,
were put cut of the room. No partiality was shown.
Hon. Thomas Stew art, Aseemolyniantelect. who is also
Secretary ct the Association, corroborat d the remarks of
Messrs. Lrnt »nd Benedict He thought the difficulty was
occasioned by Conkling or Conkling’s Dartv, attempting
to bring Democrats into tho Auso. i nion.
luspe ctor G. V»’. BBSs testified that he attended the pre
vious D’eetirg of tl c asscciadon held hoc. 5 On entexing
the room he was told that sev- ral men had been propcwec.
ter membership who were Democrat-’. A great deal was
said by members of Conkling a regiuicnt, and remarks
were made bv them that their Colonel should ‘ have a
fair show.” Everythirg pau-ed oft peaceably, however.
On the night of the 9th, be went to the rooms of the
Association, and found a section of police there from
the Fifteenth Precinct, under the command of Ser
geants Bowe and Bird. He was surprised at it. as
he had not heard that there was any anticipation of
a rev.'. Cn entericg the room be found it very much
crowded, and reccgnized a number of men from the 11th
Ward, well-known hard characters, wno were never st on
there untess a row was anticipated. Pe v eral names were
prcpCEed, and he moved that they should bewoted for
fci'ialitn. provioed they v.ere Republicans: those whose
names elicited any objections to be referred to a commit
tee of three. This was responded to by Col. Conkiing, and
the remains quoted above re used by tne crowd, and
the row then commenced. He ordered the police to clear
the rotm of all in any way engaged in tne row. and this
he teb-ived was faithfully done. He himself ejected seve
ral of the ringleaders. In regard to ularx’s statement ho
declared that he did not nod or in any other manner com
munic; te with any man by meins oi signs. He in no
manner exercised partiality in ejecting the participants
in the row.
Sergeants Rowe and Bird testified that they were sent
there by Captain Caffrey to preserve order, and that af
ter the commencement of the row they made no dis
crimination; all who were making ary disturbance were
ejected.
The Commissioners, as usual, reserved their decision un
til the meeting oi the lull Board, when, hs Is usual in
such cases, the ttatlmony will be carefully weighed and
the decision rendered.
Assault on a Policss Captain by an
Or nor a— The 19th Frocinct Station was somewhat star
ved oit last V. ednesc ay morning by a rather amusing cir
cumstance in the arnals of the Police Department noth
ing less, acccrdirg to the testimony of several of the offl-
I ccr< present, than an attempt to shoot Capt. Harit, com
i mandiDg the lorce in that precinct The facts, us stated
; by of the eye witnesses, are ss follows:
; Cflkor Jan es Tennant of the Twenty firm Precinct, en
tered the Nineteenth Precinct staticn boose, in Fifty ninth
street be tween Second and Third avenues, and accosted
Capt. Hartt, who stood near the telegraph instrument,
w th the remark: *■ I salute you. because you are cap
tain.” The captain reohed: *• Very well, Mr TcntxtiDt—
how do youde T” Tennant then became very abusive to
ward tte captain, who fluaPy teld him that ho must cease
his abuse or leave the station hoaee This remark seemed
to enrage him the more, and after shaking his fists aud
contirnng the same string of abuse, ho drew a revolver
and ; Jvanced in a threatening manner. The captain
then < • Ped to his men to assist him, and Roundsman Fitz
gera’u nd Officer Clark sprang to bis aid The former
seized • ■ npant by the throat, and w,tli the aid of Capt.
Hart, norite his furious struggles, he was disarmed,
handcLlkd and placed in one of the cells for the night.
In his t.r nt/gles te free himself irom the handcuffs he d«•
| located t is wi ut.
I OnTLursday he was taken before Judge Kelly, who
held hint to bail in the suxj of $.500 to answer the charge
of ie)< oils assault. Some months since T nriant was
Ward Detective in the bmetceDth Precinct, but was re
msved by tho Pellet Ccmmis‘Joners ard transferred to
patrol duty in the Twenty first Pr«duct, and hasen sev
eral cccasloDS declared IPs bal’d ttxat this was den?, at
the instigation of (.'apt. Hartt. rids may possibly have
been the cause that led to the above attempt oa bis part.
It is but justice to ihe accused ai.d his friend-, to state that
thf Jr vi rsion ot the affair differs widely from the above.
They s'ate that the accused f n ter en the stutxon-hOUse for
the purpose ot visiting some fri?nds, and that he was ac
costed tn a rough manner by the Captain. He replied
rather excitedly, and during the conversation he took oat
his handkerchief, and as he did so his revolver wis dis
played. He had do intention ot using it. and grasued it
to pt event it Hom la ling on the floor. Immediately on
the appearerce of the weaoou, he was seized in the man- '
nei’ above described, ar.d verv naturrtllv resisted, at the ,
same time offering t » explain the matter. This he was '
not showed to io. The right version w r ill appear on the i
trial before the Police Coirmisaoncrs or on the criminal
suit

BROOKLYN MATTERS.
COMMON COUNCIL.
It were to be wished that some intellectual Jenner
would discover and apply to some of our City Fathers an
antidote against what may be termed cucotthe* loqmndi.
Four mortal hours of precieus time were consumed, last
Monday evening, mainly in talk. Almost every member
of the Board had bls say. We have heard it said that it is
possible U talk a dog s tail out ef joint If so, dogs that
have any regard for the normal condition of their caudal
continuations, will do well to avoid the chamber of the
Common Cour cil. Considering tho length of the session,
the results bn. g forcibly to our minds the fable ot the
parturient mountains and the ridiculous wiwx. The bill of
the Water Board, for pupplying the city from 1859 to 1864.
amounting to $lO 413 35, was passed on and ordered paid.
'I be reception of a veto from the Mayor, of the Bath and
Coney Island Railroa * grant, caused Alderman Talmadge
to make an explanation. The Alderman, a.s President of
ihe Board, acting as Mayor in the absence o Mavor Wood,
bad approved the grant. Thereto tiled bv ihe Mavor
was informal, in not specifying grounds of objection, Ac.
The Mayor'B r. asois, he understood, had not been at
tached until his retu a home, and alter the passage and
approval ol the grant He hoped therefore, that the veto
would be referred back as null. The fact tnat the, reasons
had been so attached was confirmed thereupon by the
statement of the City Clerk. The ball of discord was
thrown, and a terrible pow-wow ensuod as to whether
the veto should h© recognized or not Personalities were
indulged in. Alderman Taylor (opposed to rejection) said
something offer-sive to the sensitiveness ol Alderman Mc-
Laughlin, and Alderman Mac then and there said that if
Aiderman T. at as “any thing of a man he would call him
to an account” The Counsel for the Board, Mr. Schu
maker, happening to be present, was asked for Ills opin
ion. but excused himself from giving a verbal opinion on
so abort a notice The question was ended for the present
by the adoption of Aiderman Taylor’s reeMatlon tobxve
the communication printed in the minutes, the Board to
express no opinion es to its locality. The resolution in
favor cf the WaUabovt Railroad Company, ard of the
Williamsburgh and Coney Wand Railroad Company,
were taken uo again, and adopted with some amend
ments. A resolution offered by Aldermnn Tavlor was
passed, requiring the Corporation Counsel to State whe
ther tbe privileges given by the City to the Brooklyn City
Railroad Company ia m the nature of a contract, and, if
so, whether the Legislature can pass a law to impair the
contract, by allowing the Company to increase their f ire,
Ac.. Ac There was a large amount of unimportant busi-
the nature ot applications for eommissionershijw,
Hit re was another meeting of the Common Council on
Thursday evening, and tte opinion of tlie Corporation
Counsel was received io the matter of the Mayor’s veto.
He is adverse to its reception In any other respect thxn
as a communication. By some juggle or other, the. reso
lution lor an increase of faro on the railroad cars, with
tne exception of the Grand street, Montros© avenue and
Van Bn.nt sire, t linep, to seven cents, was adopted This
JssometMi g extraordinary, considering the recent adop
tion ot ibe Railroad Committee’s report, which was ad
verse to such a measure. We have too much faith, how
ever, in the integrity of Mayor Wood, to believe that he
will ane his sanction to this infamous attempt to swin
dle. Alderman Fisher, of the 19th Waxd, and every oner
member whose reputation lor honesty stands high, voted
agaiDfit it Let the < itizens remember these things.

Tas Nepiune Club.— The Annual

Bovins, on lasi Thursday evening, the 22d lust. It proved
to be a very fine affair, every arrangement having oeen
made to’make it ell that the friends atte guests of the Club

and fashionable company; among whom we noticed uev
tral prominent citizens, who honored it and were hon

its reputation.

doubt, we can safely sa 0 it was also the not numerous.
The several commit tees per ermed their duties in a very

Fue Depaxtrnent were pxesent.
Oliver Fellows’ Club. —The third
arnual ball of the Clever Fellows’ Club, is to tale place at
Irving Hall on the evening of Thursday, Dec. 29 it is
quite unnecessary to say that a fine time is anticipated on
this occasion, as the recollection of the one given by the

of all who were then present.

Sharp, and we will add that ho is not ashamed

Fuiler & Brother have made ample
preparations to receive their friends during the
holiday week, and wo are quite sure that, those
who are inclined to the civilities of the season
cannot find a more agreeable place for the pur
pose than the Westchester Exchange Saloon,
corner of the Bowery and Broome street.
During the holidays, if .you would
wear a, clean face, you should not fail to visit the
Shaving, Hair-Dressing and Bathing Saloon,
comer of Broadway and Dey street.
—— —I
Ornaments. —The indispensable and
most substantial ornament to a holiday table is
pickled oysters. Ladies admit this fact always,
and act upon it generally. It will bo an ill-ar
ranged table without oysters adorn it. The fa
verite flavored one are sold by Dobi.on 4 Bhak
fks, Nos. 243 and 211 Fulton Market. Ladies
should give their orders immediately.

under the management cf Hhumanck A Lock
wood, will be found all seasonable dishes, and
the test brands of wines and other liquors and

A. Good Suggestion —lf you would

winter clothing. We are assured you cannot
buy cheaper or more stylish goods elsewhere. If
you have any boys depending on you, take them
to Baldwin’s, where you will find a choice stock
of garments suitable for youths.
Of course, ao gentleman will care
to accept sn invitation to an evening party, or
go to the opera, or to a soiree, if not dressed «
to mode. Those who pay attention to personal
appearances, and who dees not, should call on
Alit.il IL Wilmont, corner of Astor and Lafay
ette Places, and leave their orders with him. It
is hardly necessary for us to assure the public
that he attends promptly and satisfactorily to
customers.
If you would enjoy a splendid glass
of “ October Ale,” or line cutlet, or rare-bit, or
choice Havana, call at the “Clifion Shadts,"
managed by the Messrs. Cliiton, No. 15 East

Two thousand soldier’s letters were
distributed in General Sherman's army on the
IGtlr inst. For a whole afternoon the entire camp
eeemed to be in a white flutter as the veterans
opened and read their eon espondence one to
another. By the return mail have come on a
large number of orders for medical stores, in
cluding many both from officers and surgeons
for Hostkitkr’s Stomach Bitters, which is pro
nounced the beet protective against the evil ef
fects of unhealthy air and impure water that has
ever been tried in the army. Sold everywhere.

The Empress Eugenie understood
well the great need of her eex when, a few years
sirce, ehe revived the use of the graceful
crinoline, a g&iment which gives each graceful
outlines to v.eman’s drapery. It was not fashion
eo much as imperative necessity that induced
ladies to unhesitatingly follow the example of
the fair > ugenie, They long felt, and among
themselves were not loth to acknowledge the in
jurious consequences that resulted
heavy’ shirts, that weighed so heavily, impeding
their movements and contracting, even to dis
ease, the vital organs. The great dem%nd for
hoop-skirts of course necessitated a supply, and
none knew this so thoroughly as Austin Kelley
A Co., corner of Canal and Elm streets, who at
once became noted as the largest and cheapest
manufacturers of this class of goods in the
United States, The demand for their goods be
came in a few months so large that it was with
difficulty it could be met—however, by the intro
duction of improved machinery, they succeeded
in not cnly making the cheapest but the moat
duiable skirts in use. Let our lady friends call
at their establishment and txamiue them, and
we are moie than satisfied they wi'l pronounce
them nonpareils. Indeed, it is matter of wonder
to us how they manage to get up such splendid
goods and retail them at low prices. To us
it seems the materials of which they are <i(im
posed must have cost more than they are sold
for.
Helnboid’s establishment, a well
kiiown feature of Broadway, is at the preeeat
time in the full tide of popularity. A large and
elegant aesertaent of Fancy Goods and Toilet
Articles have been added to ths wsnal stock;
these are of all varieties and of tl o best quality.
Ladies, gentlemen and “ all others” desirous of
investing in Holiday P'reaente, cannot do better
than by calling in and examining the stock of
goods of this and numerous other descriptions,
at this very splendid establiahment. Few men
bavo evinced more enterprise in business than
the subject of this notice, and he deserves suc
cess.
Two Bad Cases of Piles Curid.-
Bv Dr. Strickland’s Pile Remedy. Mr. Glass
of Janesville, Wisconsin writes for the benefit
of all who suffer with Piles, that he has been
troubled for eightyears with an aggravated case
cf Piles, and his brother wae diee surged from
the army as incurable, (lie being quite paralyzed
with the Piles ) Both these distressing cases
were cured with one bottle cf Dr. Strickland’s
Pile Remedy. The recoinmendatisn of these
gentlemen, beside the daily testimonials received
by Dr. Strickland, ought to convince those suf

GOLDEN LEAVES FROM THE BRITISH POETS.
Collected by John W. 8. Hows.
The object of the editor in compiling this work was to
collect in one portable volume all the celebrated minor
poems of tho British Poets. It is believed, therefore, to
possess great practical value, as not only affording a noble
collection of true “ Golden Leaves,” but as presenting, in
a convenient and accessible form, those numerous gems
of British poetry to which all have occasion so often to
refer. The size of the volume is a convenient 16mo. It
has been printed with great care on highly calendered,
tinted paper, and is bound in a peculiarly attractive
style.

GOLDEN LEAVES FROM THE AMERICAN POETS.
Collected by John W. S. Hows.
This volume is uniform in every particular with ’’Golden
Leaves from the British Poets.”
Combined, these two volumes form, it is believed, the
most complete and desirable selection from the British
and American poets that has yet teen made. Individual
preferences have in no case guided the collection—the
stamp of populai favor in all cases being the test to which
the poems were submitted.
The convenient size of the volumes, the extreme ele
j game of their external appearance, the beauty of tho
paper and the printing, all unite in commending them to
persons of taste and culture.

IMPORTANT NOTICB
TO ALL WHO ARE ENROLLED A3
LIABLE TO DRAFT.
THE NEW YORK COUNTY COMMITTER ON VOLUN
TEERING have reason to believe that a farther call b
likely soon to be made by the President for men.
Hitherto great complaint has been made that the
quotas demanded of the County of New York have been
excessive.
As all quotas are based upon the Enrollment, it evi
dent that >o relief can be expected except by a reduction
ot the enrollment to its proper standard.
Although appeals have hitherto boon made to citizens
to correct the enrollment, there has been little or aodU
position shown by the public to discharge its duty In thU
particular. ,
It is evident at this duty must be performed by tho
public authorities, or it will not be performed at aIL
By consent of the War Department and the advtoe oC
the Governor, the New York County Committee on Vol
unteering has determined to undertake the herculean
labor of correcting the Enrollment of the County.
No means will be spared to make this correction thor
ough and satisfactory both io the people and the Govern
ment.
Our only onject is to correct the Enrollment, and
place it at a proper standard, and every citizen oww
it alike to himself and his neighbor to assist to tttoi
woi k.
In addition to other means which will be brought
into requisition for the accomplishment of tai* object,
a complete copy of the existing Enrollment of eadi
Ward or Election District will be printed and furnished
to every enrolled citizen of the Ward or Election Dis
trict.
This will prevent the excuse which so many who aca
<xeiupt have made, that they did not know they were en
rolled, and hence dll not attend to having their names
taken from the roll.
It will also afford the opportunity for every man ea
rolled to see whether or not his neighbor is enrolled, anti
enable him to secure that these liable and not enrolled
shall be put down.
Every person enrolled is. requested to aid la the. gigantic
labor which we have undertaken, by complying with tha
following conditions;
1. Whenever a name appears of any person who Is not
enrolled but liable, notice of tho tact should be given to
the Frovost-Marshal of tho District, by any person who
may be cognizant of the fact, in order that tho same mstf
be recorded.
IT. Whenever a nauie appears of any person who has
removed, notice of the fact should be given at tho Provost
Marshal's office, that tho name may be stricken from the
roll of that District, and recorded where it properly Va
lor* gs.
111. Whenever a name appears which Is known
fictitious, or any one is awaie that the person indicated is
not a resident as described, notice should be given at the
Provost Mawl j al’s office, that the name maybe stricken
from tho roll.
IV. Whenever cause of exemption exists tor any reasoa.
1 notice should be given to the Provost Marshal of the Dis
trict by the exempt person himself, that the name may
i stricken from the roll.
i The following are the recognized causes of exemption:
; 1. Over 45 years of ago.
2, Under 20 years >f age.
i 3. Being an alter and never having voted.
4. Having furnished a Substitute in anticipation of tha
Draft.
5. Having been dratted and ftirnished a Substitute.
6. Having been drafted and paid commutation.
| 7. Having been drafted and received a certificate (Mf per
I manent physical disability.
I | 8. Being oermanently physically disabled.
9. Having years in the Army or Na vy during
i : the present War, and been honorably discharge U
; | In addition to this, so far as possible, every enrolled
I J man w ill be waited upon personally by authorized agents*
! i deputed to ascertain the liability of all enrolled men, to
; i have those improperly enrolled taken off, and to fcdA
i ’ those not on, but who should be enrolled.
I As this is an effort to correct and not to increase the an
; rollment, it is to the interest of every person to give cor
! rect and true answers to any and all questions which may
i be put to them, and any person declining to ana war, or
giving false answers, render themselves liable to arrasfc
i and imprisonment.
; This is probably the last attem Jt which will be made to
j secure a correct enrollment of the County of New York..
! To be Buccvw-iul, the co operation of every resident of
; this city and county is absolutely required.
■ ■ The Government officials have evinced a disposition to
afford us every facility to attain the object in view. It;
tnerefore, through the indisposition 'and apathy of th®
public, who are most concerned, this effort to correct the
Enrollment prove abortive, and further excessive quota
are demanded of us. because of the incorrectness of tha
! Errollinent, the people of this City and County will b
I themselves responsible, and they will have none but
i themselves to blame.
