Sunday Edition. May 23
Olympic Theatre.—Notwithstanding the
-great succo?o of “Jack Sheppard,” as hero pro
duced, a few more nights will bring his present ca
reer to a close, this week being announced as -the
last. With such artists as Mr. Fox, Mr. Mortimer,
Mr. Pearson, and Miss Harland, in the cast, the act
ing may be relied on as being good, and as we have
already referred in complimentary terms to the
mounting and clever effects introduced, “Jack
Shenpard,” as produced at the Olympic, is well
worth visiting. On Monday, June sth, we are prom
ised an entire change of programme, but the nature
of it is not yet announced. Matinee on Vfednesday
and Saturday.
Grand Opera House.—The Opera Bouffers
having taken their departure with the approach of
the warm weather, last Monday witnessed the pro
duction of a rather novel but most attractive enter
tainment at the Grand Opera House. This was a
magnificent romant.o pantomime adapted from “ The
.Arabian Nights,” by J. McCloskey, and designated
“The Three Hunchbacks.” As a spectacular dis
play “The Three Hunchbacks” is quite equal to
the “ Black Crook,” and like it is made the medium
for introducing a variety of novel entertainments.
Our old friends Moe and Goodrich appear m it, and
that most diverting and best of English clowns, Mr.
Charles Abbott, finds opportunity lor displaying his
peculiar abilities.
A most bewitching blonde Miss Belle Howitt by
name, appears as Zuleika, and sings several popu'ar
aongs with telling effect, while Miss Ethel Norman
is the object of great attraction as Azuroali, whose
■peculiar province it is to protect the hunchback?.
The great danseuse, Mi e. Bonfanti, and also Signor
Novissimo are iamong the attractions, and J. C.
Franklyn of “Black Crook” celebri'y figures
prominently and dances, gorgeous processions, and
brilliant tableaux are among the features of this
•picy production. Mr. Charles Abbott is the Clown,
Hr. C. Crisdee the Pantaloon, Mr. J. W. Sandford
the Harlequin, and Madame Emma the Columbine.
With such a company, it will readily be understood
that the “ Three Hunchbacks” are booked for a long
and brilliant career. Matinee on Saturday.
Wood’s Museum Theatre.—Mr. Joseph Mur
phy has had another highly saccess ul week at
Wood’s Museum Theatre, and has every reason to
f«ol flattered by tho success which has attended his
engagement at that house. Mr. Murphy is a most
versatile and accomplished actor, and his return to
Wood’s will be welcomed with pleasure. To-mor
row evening tho well known burlesque actresses,
O'ivia and Rosa Rand, will commence a brief engage
ment, and as their style of entertainment is ad
mirably adapted to this warm weather, being light
and effervescing, we have no doubt it will be a most
euccesful one. To morrow evening they will appear
in the comedietta of “A Morning Call,” and the
excellent bur.esque by Andrew Halliday, “Kenil
worth.” On Tuesday evening the entertainment
will bo for the benefit of Miss Alice Harrison, a
clever li't.e soubrette actress, on which occasion
“The Hidden Hand” and “Kenilworth” will be
submitted to her admirers. Miss Harrison is a most
promising and clever young actress, and we venture
to bespeak for her a lull house. On Wednesday and
Thursday evenings “The Perl of Savoy” will be
played, and on Friday, Mr. James Barnes, the popu
lar stage director, win take his benefit, and irom the
manner in which bis department is always attended
to, a bumper house m..y be predicted. On that oc
casion tho beautiful Irish play, “ Intehavogue,” and
the farce of ‘Jones’ Baby,” will be produced, and
the Sisters Band, Mr. J. M. Ward, and Mr. Barnes
himsoif, wid appear. The same programme will be
given on Saturday at both matinee and evening
performances, and during the remainder of tho
week “The Idiot Witness” and “More Blunders
than One” wid be the matinee attractions. Little
Lulu and Rob Roy Macregor, Jr., are still retained
upon the establishment, ana Fox and Denier’s pan
tomime company will appear in tho “ Three Blind
Mica,” on Monday. SJI June.
Bowery Theatre.—The success which has
attended tho pertormances of Mr. W. H. Whalley, for
the past two weeks, has induced the management to
retain him for another week. On Monday evening,
the drama of “ Oliver Twist; or, The Work-House
Foundling,” will be prouuced. with a very strong
cast oi characters, and with scenery painted for the
drama. Mr. Whalley will sustain the character o
Fagin, a par. in which he has attained much celebrity
for the force and truth with Wi_ich he embodies the
different phases of the miserly, rascally old thief
maker. The larce of “ Brian O’Liun” wili precede
the drama every night.
On Tuesday evening, Mr. N. B. Clarke’s name will
be presented for a benefit. Mr. Ciarke is the stage
manager oi this theatre, and an old and worthy act
or. The patrons oi the Bowery should see that tho
veteran has a crowded house on this occasion.
On Wednesday, Mr. George France, the comedian
of the theatre, takes a benefit. Mr. Franco is a
young, painstaking, and clever artist, who has in a
abort period made himself a popular favorite.
Those who have so often laughed at hia humor,
should not fall to give him pleasure by their liber
ality on his oenefit night.
On Thursday evening, Miss Millie Sackett takes a
benefit. Miss Sackett is a c.ever, rollicking actress,
and a very pretty woman. She has so many admir
ers that if they all buy tickets on the occasion of her
benefit, the house will be uncomfortably packed.
On Friday evening, the doorkeepers, officers, and
ushers, take their annual benefit. It should be a
bumper, as no other theatre in the city has a corps
of more courteous, kindly, and gentlemanly attend
ants. As the public come in immediate contact with
these gentlemen, they can better appreciate their
courtesy under occasionally trying circumstances.
The best way to show that appreciation is by filling
the house io overflowing on Friday evening.
Mrs. -F. B. Conway’s Park Theatre, Brook
lyn.—Laura Koene has been delighting the play
goers of Brooklyn for the last six nights by her ad
mirable impersonation of Mary Leigh, in Boucicault’s
play “ Hunted Down.” Miss Keene received such
• ■unqualified praise for her rendition of this character
in New YorK last Winter, that minute criticism is
unnecessary. Last night brought her engagement
to a close, and aiso concluded the season at the Park
Theatre. To-morrow evening will be an extra night,
on which occasion the-entertainments will be for tho
benefit of Mr. M. Sammis.
Globe Theatre.—“ When the Cat’s away
the Mice will Play,” an exceedingly amusing panto
mimic ballet, has furnished Mon*;. Caron with an op
portunity of displaying his abilities as a pantomim
ist, and they are not limited. The Misses Wesner
also sustained their parts with marked ability. We
were glad to see Master Barney bad thoroughly re
covered frotu his severe indisposition. Wo have sel
dom found him more entertaining than he*has been
this week. In the merry sketch of “ The Coopers,”
John Hart, Sam Rickey and Add Ryman were very
amusing. Tho former gentleman (John Hart) is ir--
resistibiy droi ; there is no use attempting to restrain
yourself, you must laugh at him, and S. Rickey is in
no way behind. Sharpiey and Bintley are two of tho
best concertina players wo have ever heard. Their
imitations are particularly good. Fuller and Hughes
are not good singers, but their dancing makes up tor
their other defects. Mr. Robert Nicklo is a graceful
und expert conjuror; his goblin drum busines is very
neatly managed. Mr. Gus Williams is a capital
character vocalist. He sang “ Broken Down ” and
an Irish song, very well indeed. The laughable
farce of “The Secret,” has brought the entertain
ment to a close each evening. To morrow evening,
and during the week, with the exception oi Tuesday,
the Globe Theatre will remain closed, but will re
open on Monday, June sth. with Foster’s great sen
sational drama, “Neck and Neck,” in wnich Mr. E.
T. Stetson will appear. In a recent number wo
alluded to the benefit of Master Barney, which
will be given in the shape of a maiinee performance
on Tuesday next. Numerous extra attractions will
be presented, and we trust the hint then thrown out
will bo acted on, and Master Barney favored with a
Lina Edwin’s Theatre.—This week will
bring the present successful career of “ Rank” to a
close, the last five nights of the season being an
nounced. There will be a matinee performance on
Saturday, and in the evening “Rank” will be trans
ferred to the boards of the Brooklyn Academy of
Music, and thenc><o Philadelphia, Boston, and other
provincial cities.'On Monday evening the entertain
ments will be for the benefit of Mr. Harry Ey tinge, a
most popular and deserving actor. During the sea
son just gone by, Mr. Eytinge’s talents have fre
quently afforded his admirers great pleasure, and it
is to be hoped Monday evening’s entertainment will
be largely patronized, and his efforts thus appre
• Theatre Comique.—Another successful week
Rt the Comique has just gone by, and Monday, Tues
day, and Wednesday, will witness the last perform
ances at this theatre of this clever company. On
those evenings and at a matinee on Wednesday, the
performances will include among other novelties,
the grand ballet “ Sappronilla,” a new local drama
“Our Country Cousin,” and the sketch of “The
Last of tho Mohicans.” Geraldine and Leopold,
Ashcroft and Morton, Hughey Dougherty, Geo. H.
Coes, J. C. Stewart, and ah the other favorites will
appear, and the entertainments will be even more
than usually in teresting.
•j Nixon’s Japanese Embassy.—Mr. James M.
Nixon, long since known in the annals of national
amusement enterprises as the originator of the re
nowned Hippodrome of the Palace Garden, where
Carlotta Patu made her first advance to popularity,
and also as the manager of Nibio’s Garden during
Borne of its most brilliant seasons, has suddenly
come upon the scene again as the organizer of an en
tertainment constituting an admirable contrast to
Barnum’s great caravan. Mr. Nixon has induced
those matchless heathens, the Royal Satsuma Japan
ese, to make a professional tour through New York
and New England during the Summer months. The
troupe have shown the greatest anxiety to go into
our agricultural districts, and see what we know
ibout farming, and at the same time they propose to
give tho rural American an insight into tjje man
ners, customs, science, and skill of their own curious
land, The Japs will travel with right royal splen
dor, and hold their levees under a magnificent pa
vilion. Their entertainments will include national
dances, music of the Japanese future, illustrations of
their marriage feasts, together with their inexplica
ble gymnastic exploits, feats of legerdemain, &c.
The troupe begins, on Monday, the sth of June, at
New Brighton, Staten Island. On Tuesday, the un
compromising heathen look for a Christian welcome
at Stapleton, and next day at Mott Haven. Tea will
be serve J to the audience in the Yeddo style, and little
AH Right is to have the pleasure of presenting to the
first hundred ladies arriving at the matinees, sou
venirs, In the shape of wonderfully wrought Japanese
charms. Mr. Nixon’s project is novel and interest
ing. This generation may never have another such
opportunity of studying the peculiarities of these
highly civilized barbarians.
A London journal says: Signor Mario’s Im
personation of Fernando is one of those achievements
which take a place by right among the traditions of the
lyrio stage. It- has often been described, but no descrip
tion can convey an idea of its power, even as manifested
in this, the last season of the artist’s public career as
a matter of fact, Signor Mario’s Fernando remains what
at was twenty years ago, voice excepted. It displays the
same dignity of bearing, tho same soldierly frankness,
the same noble scorn of unwortuy favor, and the same
great love.
i During a late performance of the “Lady of
Lyons” at the Mormon theatre, in Salt Lake City an
elder got up. and indignantly walked out of the house
With his twenty-four wives, muttering: “I won’t stay
and see a play where a man makes such an awful fool of
himself about one woman.”
L Mr. Fisk has tendered M. Offenbach a press

THE “LAD DISK A,” Etc., Etc.
Costumes for the sea-side are subjects of particular
moment. The sea-shore grows in favor with cur com
munity; a much larger crowd of fashionables than usual
have given their vote to go oceanward. Very many, in
spite of the unfortunate condition of la belle France, are
upon the eve of departing, or have already set out, for
Europe. No one at all au fait in such matters now thinks
of providing much in the way of fine to.let for a conti
nental trip. Take what is absolutely necessary for neat
ness and comfort on shipboard, and purchase what is re
quired thereafter upon reaching your destination. A
ladies* inventory should include two good, suostantial
traveling suits and a serviceable wrapper. Proper dis
cretion will regulate the rest. Superfluous luggage is an
intolerable nuisance upon a journey. If a lady is travel
ing alone, it subjects her to much annoyance and per
plexity. If it is supervised by husband, brother or other
esco:t, it is mentally sent to Jericho, or some other for
eign port, oftener than we or they would like to tell.
When the projected Summer absence involves simply
d .veiling by the sea rather than on it, with a throng of
kindred pleasure seekers, the point q# costume is quite
another and more important matter. The hints that
follow will prove interesting. All reminders of tho
demi-saison in tho shape of velvet sacks and heavy trim- i
mings have been laid by. At
Lord & Taylor’s, corner of Broadway and Twentieth
street, there is a general blossoming out of summery,
tropical luxuriance. The popular openings comprise
rich silks, grenadines, gaze de chine, organdies, French
lawns and cretonnes. Gaze de chine is the belle par ex
cellence of the dress realm. For those of our readers
who do not know it, we will state that it is a beautifully
fins and lustrous silken tissue, one of the
Summer fabrics in vogue. It is usually made up over
light silk foundation. The cheap suitings to which the
central counter is devoted, delight all advocates for
economy. An excellent line of mohair lustres, mozam
biques, and light poplins are now drawing notice to this
quarter. Young America is remembered in the gents*
department this month, in a beautiful necktie made
with a sailor knot, scarf-ends, and collar-strap, precisely
like his father’s, and known as “The Young Gentle
man.” The worthy Mr. Capon, charge d'affaires of this
sphere, introduced to our observation a novelty called
the "Coachman’s Collar.” .Jt is a combination of col
lar, tie, and shirt-front, easily put on in a moment, and
recommends itself at sight. Price, sl. If your man is
liable to be summoned in a hurry, he can get himself up
in spotless linen as quickly as if Cinderella’s kind god
mother had taken him in favor. The " Warren Tie,”
mentioned last month, has been a genuine “lion” in its
way, and slain more greenbacks than any other of its
kind. It borrows its title from the gentlemanly assist
ant superintendent of this house, well known to fashion
able club circles whose patronage is extensively be
stowed here. This tie is made in the chaste, cool colors
and delicate stripes popular for the Branch and Springs.
Handsome white vests are leading sales, at prices rang
ing from $3 to $6 a piece. The “Windsor” tie and
"Grenadine Windsors,” with embroidered ends, ar®
much approved. Tho new dressing jackets are quite
dangerous—it turns the head of masculine Young New
York to see them, and we are afraid sad havoc will be
made with tender feminine hearts when these dashing
gay boys make their debut in a “Lester Wallack,” or
some other of Lord & Taylor’s prettiest. This firm has
the sole American agency of the Despres Glove, which
bears the enviable reputation of being
The kid is superfine, and the make peculiar; each
finger is set in with a gore, and the thumb cut with
gores, that “give” to the strain put upon it in using the
hand. Wear, and not tear, is consequently the result.
The “Despres” is a Parisian favorite that ladies who
have been abroad will remember.
At Lord & Taylor's lower retail store, corner of
Grand and Christie streets, a fine exposition of suits is
taking place. White lawn and buff range from $5 up,
and traveling suits in Mozambique, mohair, and Sum
mer poplins, sufficiently trimmed, from S2O to S3O. An
elegant Irish poplin, ashes of rose color, made with
demi-train, long overskirt, and postillion basque,
trimmed with bias folds and fringe, was marked $75.
Suits made to order are fitted exquisitely. Ladies who
find the East side most convenient to their residences
for shopping, can safely do their buying and trust their
dressmaking here. We can assure them, from personal
experience, that attention to orders, neatness, taste, and
dispatch distinguish the modiste's sanctum.
We have had a peep into
at James McCreery & Co.’s, corner of Broadway and
Eleventh street, far up above the idle, worldly throng
that gazes, admires, and is bewildered at the beautiful
creations that fill the show room.?. All the ordered
work—and there is enough to occupy many pairs of busy
hands—is destined for the seaside. Among the many
re-herche suits in progress, there is first displayed a deli
cate Gaze de Chine, in leaf green, striped with a darker
shade, and trimmed with moss niching still darker. A
white silk lining is used throughout. The style is a
ruffled skirt, and Polonaise with postillion back. Five
ruffles are employed on the underskirt, one four inches
wide, and four two inches, moss trimming heading the
top; narrow ruffles around the Polonaise, and apron
front, ornamented with box plaiting and moss; An
toinette sleeve and Pompadour neck. An odd dinner cos
tume is thus composed: Demi-tramed skirt of white silk,
stripedin narrow bars of plum-colored satin; several
narrow bias ruffles around the bottom bound with satin;
overskirt and postillion basque, with a double stripe in
the same color of Gaze de Chine, block fringe in the two
colors for trimming; the overskirt is very long behind,
and the apron short and round. A striped blue and
white Gaze de Chine was ornamented on the lower skirt
with a moderate flounce, a ruffle, and box pleating,
fringe in blue and white blocks on the overskirt, and
postillion basque, with heart-shaped neck and Princess,
sleeves. The rule for overskirts is a short, round apron
or divided front, court train shape behind, and very much
bouffant around the hips. An extremely distingue dinner
dress is made as follows: Court train of silk striped in
orange satin, cut in scollops on the edge, and finished
with plain satin bindiftg; petticoat of satin, ruffled high
across the front; body to match the train; square
necked, with Marie Antoinette sleeves. A carriage suit
in two colors, clay and brown umber, next solicits at
tention. McCreery & Co. have won a reputation for ofc
fering white and buff costumes at the lowest figure. We
remark that fluff?, tucks and embroidery are rather pre
ferred to fluting. Great bargains are shown in under
wear. Silks and lace goods are superb as usual. Lovely
grenadines and organdies are profuse on the dress goods
counters, and in the domestic line this house is not ex
celled by any other in town. A fair Flora McFlimsey,
who has indulged every conceivable caprice, has consult
ed Dame Fashion at this reliable source on the subject
of seaside wrappers. Thus has come into existence the
fancy of having a colored silk slip or petticoat, ruffled
around the bottom three deep, with a branch crossing
the front width diagonally, and fastening under a knot
fantastically tied. Over this a linen organdy or cambric
Polonaise, quite long, and tri rimed richly with lace, &o.
To be comme ilfaut in the rul for costuming,
are set down as requisite, viz.: a bonnet for church and
ceremonious wear; a bonnet or round hat for the drive,
and a flat for promenades. Bonnets are simply round
hats with ties, to which most young ladies incline this
season. Our grand centre for millinery items is at
Johnson, Burns & Co., Union square, whose retail
trade undqubtedly equals that of any establishment in
the city, if, indeed, it is not unrivaled. The wholesale
business is likewise extensive. The special notes here
made embrace descriptions of the most elegant goods we
have seen this month.
The “ Cerise” is a royal white chip bonnet, trimmed in
tea color, chocolate, and dark brown; the lining, in velvet
of the last shade, rolls over the brim and bands the
crown; the two remaining shades are in grosgrain, cun
ningly disposed; a tea-colored ostrich tip overhangs the
crown; a tea rose, and another of very, very dark crimson,
with foliage and spray of thistle down, are adjusted at
the top.
3 he ” Blossom” appropriately names a white chip bon
net trimmed in lilac and purple gros grain ribbon; a
black thread dotted scarf trails over the back, and sprays
of lilac, with exquisite foliage, fall like a vine upon its
meshes. These flowers alone are estimated at $7 00.
The “Asphodel,” also in chip, is distinguished by a
velvet coronet braced with straw. The trimmings are
of tea colored ribbon, black net, and a gorgeous rose
branch, heavy with crimson bloom.
The English turban is the most stylish of round hats;
the brim rises straight. A general favorite presented a
velvet faced brim, with gros grain folds encircling the
crown attached, with a jet anchor on one side, and sup
porting a lovely blush rose with attendant buds.
The ” Oramaka ” is a leghorn flat of peculiar shape,
the brim forming two deep curves. It is bound in black
velvet and ribbon, and tips of leghorn color rise high on
the crown.
An "Oramaka” in chip wasreial in Nile green gros
grain, velvet binding of the same shade, and a rare tea
dhe "Tedesca” is likewise a flat, characterized by the
brim rolling close at the side, Nile green trimmings and
lily of the valley trailing at the back.
Black lace bonnets are beginning to make an appear
ance. Here is a delicate beauty in dotted thread net.
adorned with pale rose-colored tips and a white aigrette.
Face trimming of pink silk ruches.
Johnson, Burns A Go’s is an excellent depot for
parasols and dress trimmings. In sun umbrellas we
find small checks with a plain border, and in trimmings.
Murseillej gimps and silk fringes. “Tom Thumb”
fringes is considered appropriate for thin materials;. it
is sold by the piece at $1 per dozen yards. The newest
fringe is knotted in tassels of two lengths.
Many of the best known of the ton bestow their pa
tronage at Wilson & Greig’s, late O’Sullivan A Grieg,
a firm famed for taste, elegance, and novelty in selecting
a grand clearing out sale disposed of the old goods, and
made room for a marvelous line of specialties that lend
this house great prestige. First introduced to suits let
us take observations. The richest qualities of black
silks present themselves m graceful Polonaise costumes,
the distinctions being wonderfully beautiful trimmings
upon the underskirts and overdresses, unequaled for sty’e
and grace. A distingue mode has black thread lace fall
ing over white’lace or fringe, an idea which harmonizes
with- the new caprice for combinations of color, and
relieves the otherwise sombre effect of a black costume.
A dressy imported nouveaule, is distinguished by the
Bournous overskirt and English walking jacket. Wo find
this chiefly used for Japanese and hair striped silks; the
Bournous overskirt falls in two points like the one made
in the famous shawl or cloak, and the inner surface is
lined, when preferred, with some bright contrasting tint.
The jacket specified is slightly fitted with the cut
in tabs. A charming suit for demi toilette is- made of
Lamballe cloth, a light striped blue poplin and plain
blue; Lamballe skirt, with ruffles and apron of blue and
Polonaise, likewise trimmed with plain material.
Postillion and English walking jackets in cloth and cash
mere, elaborately embroidered, are the attractive fea
tures in the next showroom. The prices range from
sl4 to SSO, of course the rate depending upon the
amount of work bestowed upon the garment. Some
are gaudy with rainbow hues, others resplendent
in gold, yet more traced with brilliant Japanese
designs, while more quiet tastes are also very
generally cm suited. Our best word of praise de
serves to be given to the black cashmeres wrought
with black silk braid. Scarlet, blue, and green postil
lions are gotten up very jauntily for breakfast wear.
The cashmere mantles so popular with the distinguished
fair abroad, era here presented ia beautiful variety.
The “ Ladoiska,” a Polish wrap, may be designated
queen of this class of garments. In style it simulates a
Polonaise with a scarf fastened on the shoulder and fall
ing below the waist so that it may be caught on the op
posite side of the skirt in tunic fashion. This mode is
suporb for black silk, and is but one of the many elegant
fancies of this description imported by this establish
ment. The title of “ Empress Traveling Cloak,” digni
fies the new and convenient waterproof mantle made up
in blue, gray, and brown English goods, obtained for
this purpose.
The much-talked-of Batiste linens and lawns reveal
the most exquisite shades of gray, buff, and brown, in
superior qualities. The pattern suits are in three col
ors, which make a very effective tout ensemble. The "Yo
semite stripe” is the latest goods of this line, and de
cidedly the most dressy and desirable yet manufactured.
The stripes lay upon the delicate linen surface like satin
bars—it is most distingui in tea and pearl colors. A
tempting display of "Victoria suits” in white lawn,
‘neatly ornamented, draws us to another quarter, where
we also discern fine white costumes of every description,
together with a general assortment of special work in
underwear for ladies and children. Lace sacques and
points are well represented, and, passing through the
general department, we mark the colored cluny laces so
much in vogue, ia all widths. Many of the modes we
have mentioned are special with this house, and unex
celled in character. The refitting for the season’s tjjade
has been conducted with no sparing of expense, and the
hands that have so generously catered for our creme de la
creme, will undoubtedly receive the liberal return justly
merited. No advantage in the way of high prices awaits
the patron lured by this brilliant opening, but the ad
mirable policy of delighting with price as well as with
quality is unwaveringly pursued.
Arnold, Constable A Co., corner of Broadway and
Nineteenth street, have lowered the lates of all their
stock of fine Summer goods. Great care is given to the
manufacture of white and cambric suits. The infants’
department is super-excellent.
Richard Meares, corner of Sixth avenue and Nine
teenth street, is the popular man of his sphere in that
locality. His visitors rarely seek farther; when once be
neath his roof, dress goods, domestics, suits, etc., pre
sent such alluring charms that a purchase naturally fol
lows. In ready made youths’ and gent’s shirts, Meares
is ready to defy competition.
R. H. Macy, corner of Fourteenth, street ’and Sixth
avenue, has lowered the prices of his entire parasol
stock, and we are inclined, after some inquiry, to believe
this kind, considerate arrangement has been universally
extended to dress trimmings,, embroideries, laces, and
the many useful articles he supervises. Call in time
while the wholesale rates to retail buyers last.
Young and old are content to consult Jackson’s
mourning emporium for the sombre modes peculiar to
the various phases of affliction. No better authority
can be recommended than the excellent stock at No.
729 Broadway. Iron frame grenadines are highly es
teemed for suits.
Customers are courteously attended at Binxs’ milli
nery emporium, No. 647 Broadway, and whether mak
ing large or small purchases, are certain to find stylish
goods and low prices. *
Chatelain braids, cascades of curls, pompadour rolls,
and other mode? of appertaining to the newest fancies
for wearing the hair, can be procured at A. A. Meyers’,
No. 785 Broadway. A
department will be found at D. Kelly’s on Eighth
avenue, between Thirty-fifth and Thirty-sixth streets.

A Splendid Game—Excellent Fielding and Bat
ting—The Spectators Greatly Excited.
Tho prettiest game, perhaps, that ever was played on
the Union ground, was that witnessed by about 2,000
spectators between the Boston Club, of Boston, and the
Olympic Club, of Washington. Wo need hardly inform
our readers that these two clubs were organized during
the present season fropi the old and well-known Red
Stocking nine—the Olympic Club taking five, and the
Boston four of the red men. There is, consequently, a
little additional rivalry between the clubs—more than
would exist under ordinary circumstances. Both clubs
were cordially received upon their arrival on the ground,
the Bostonians being dressed in white flannel shirts and
pants, with red stockings, and over all a very handsome
open-worked woolen jacket. The Washingtonians were
similarly dressed, with tho exception that their stock
ings were blue instead of red. They also wore the open
worked jackets, which are certainly a great improve
ment, and for which the men are indebted to George
Wright and Gould, who designed and supplied them to
both nines. The wretched exhibition which the Olym
pics made on Friday in their game with the Stars, led
most persons to expect a poor game yesterday, and no
doubt had the effect of keeping away a great many
who would otherwise have been present. The betting
opened with 100 to 50 on the Boston nine, and at the
end of the seventh inning was 100 to 20 on Boston; a
good deal of money must, therefore, have changed
hands on the result. Although Harry Wright’s nine
were defeated yesterday] we are still of opinion they
will end the season with a better record than the Olym
pics, not so much on account of their superior play, but
because they appear steadier and are certainly bettor
disciplined than the others. There is very little to
choose, however, between them, as both played splen
didly, and deserve the greatest credit for their exer
Play was called at 3:15, the Olympic men being at the
bat first. Waterman led off with a fine grounder, which
was well stopped by Barnes at short, and sent in to
Gould. Force then struck a short ball, which went
about half way between the pitcher and third base, and
which would have been sent in to Gould in time, had
not Spaulding fallen when picking it up. Mills made
his first on a clean hit to left field, and Allison sent a
warm one to third base, which Schafer sent to Gould in
time, but Force got in. Glenn (who played in one in
ning only) was’then out from Schafer to Gould. For the
Bostonians, Jackson led off with a fine hit, which, how
ever, was taken on the fly by Berthrong in left field.
Barnes then made his base on a hit to left field, and
Birdsall was missed on the fly by Glenn, whose hand was
so disabled as to prevent him holding the ball. McVey
followed with a fine hit to centre field, bringing home
Barnes. H. Wright followed with a beautiful three
base hit to centre, bringing home Birdsall and McVey.
Gould was then taken on a red hot fly, straight as a
line, by Leonard at second base, and the old Red Stock
ing training showed itself by tbo splendid style in which
he sent the ball to third, being within an ace of putting
Harry Wright out there. Schafer then went out on
three strikes.
Second Inning.— The Olympics were disposed of in a
masterly manner for a duck’s egg, and the Bostons were
finely put out in one, two, three order.
Third Inning.— Again were the Washingtonians sent to
the right-about without scoring, although Mills got to
his third base on a magnificent drive to centre field, but
the Boston nine managed to score two runs through a
short throw from Leonard to Mills, in attempting to
make a brilliant double play.
Fourth Inning.— The Olympics were once more out with
out scoring, this time in one, two, three order, and the
Bostonians followed suit exactly in the same way.
Fifth Inning.— This, so far as the Olympics were con
cerned, was a repitition of the previous inning; but
through a slight error on the part of Hall in centre field,
four of the Boston men went to the bat, but neither
Sixth Inning.— For tho third time in succession the
Olympic men were disposed of in one, two, three order,
and so were the Bostonians, the play on both sides being
simply magnificent.
Seventh Inning.—Once more, and for the last time, the
Washington pets were sent to the right about in one,
two, three order, it appearing as if there was no possi
bility of their being able to get a ball away from the
human wall which so zealously guarded the infield of
the Bostonians. The Olympics, however, were in no way
behind the Bostonians in this respect, as the latter had
to march out in one, two, three order, through a splen
did double play of Leonard’s. The game was now sto 1
in favor of Boston, and they appeared certain to win,
but base ball is a wonderful game for surprises.
Eighth Inning.—ln this inning, when it was of vital
importance too, Hall, Waterman, Force, and Allison,
batted splendidly, and three runs were scored and
earned, while the Boston men were disposed of again in
one, two, three order. This left the Olympics one run
to get to tie, and the excitement was feverish.
Ninth Inning.— Leonard led off with a hit which was
called foul, and which Spaulding was in the act of tak
ing on the fly, when Leonard dashed up against him
and knocked the ball out of his hand. He then made
his base on a grounder to centre field, stole to his sec
ond, and then to his third, with all the old Red Stock
ing style, while Brainard got his base on called balls.
Hall then sent a hot one to Jackson, who fell in trying
to stop it, but who sent the ball to Gould, while lying on
his back, in time to put Hall out. Berthrong got his
first on a fine hit to left, Waterman on a bounding ball
to short, which brought Brainard home, but Force was
taken on the fly bv Cone, in left field—one of the most
brilliant catches ever seen on a ball field The cheering
was now tremendous, and lasted for some minutes. The
Bostonians were now one run behind, but they went to
the bat with perfect confidence. When Gould stood up,
with bat in hand, the slightest chirrup of a bird might
have been heard all over the ground, so solemn was the
silence. He hit to left field, and was taken ou the fly
by Berthrong, amid loud cheers. Schafer followed, and
was splendidly “ flowed out” by Burroughs, in the right
field. All eyes were now eagerly fixed on Cone, as it
was hoped he might make a brilliant run; two balls
were called, and then two strikes, the excitement being
so great as almost to deprive the spectators of the power
to breathe; and finally he got his base on called balls.
Spaulding was now looked to as the forlorn hope of the
Boston nine, and he hit a hot one to short stop, but lit
tle Force was in very great force, and he, after making a
long and swift run, just took it before it touched the
ground, winning the game for the Olympics by one run.
After the painful exhibitions of the Mutes on Thurs
day, and rhe Olympics on Friday, the game yesterday
was a great and quite an unexpected treat, it being a
perfect pleasure to watch the splendid play. The Bos
tonians played without a single error, unless Spaulding's
fall in the first inning may be termed ons, but the Olym
pics made four errors. They played a splendid up-hill
game, however, never flinching for a moment, and well
deserved the victory they so gallantly won. The follow

Umpire—Mr. C. Mills, of the Mutual Club. Time of
Game—Two hours.
Considerable discussion having arisen aftar th© game
as to what should have bsen ths umpire’s decision re
specting Leonard’s conduct in preventing Spaulding
from catching the foul ball in the last inning
and which unquestionably was the means of winning
the game from the Bostonians, we append the rule
which applies to it. Sec. 2, Rule VI says, "Any player
who shall intentionally prevent an adversary from catch
ing or fielding the ball, shall be declared out; or if any
player be prevented from making a base, by the inten
tional obstruction of an adversary, he shall be entitled,
tP thvt base, and shall not be declared out, even if
touched by th© ball.” And Sec. 9of Rule IV says, with
reference to the definition of what is an obstruction,
any obstruction hat could readily have been avoided
shall be considered as intentional.” If Mr. Mills was
conversant witth hese rules it rested with him to decide
whether the obstruction “ could have been readily avoided."
If he thought not, then Leonard was entitled to return
to the home base.
A largo number of the members of the New York
Caledonian Club met at the Elysian Fields, Hoboken,
on Monday last, to witness a contest between nine mar
ried and nine single members of the club. The game
was hotly and strongly contested, but the "Benedicts'*
were defeated handsomely. The following is the score:

The past weak has been a b'USt one in base ball circles
al! over the country, and has been prolific in surprises
which have clearly but painfully illustrated the glorious
uncertainty of the game. We more especially allude to
the games between the Mutuals and Haymakers, and
the Olympics and Stars, both of which games Would
have done discredit to junior amateur clubs. In writing
of the gnme between the Mutuals and Haymakers, we
cannot find terms of reprobation strong enough to ex
press our opinion of their play. The Olympic nine are
incomplete in consequence of the indisposition of
Sweasy and Force, and Allison is at present worse than
useless, as, from the disabled state of his hands, the
pitcher is afraid to send in the balls with his usual speed,
knowing that Allison may break down at any moment.
It certainly was a melancholy sight to see-men who play
ed such a game while members of the celebrated Red
Stocking nine muffing like a lot of schoolboys. As for
the Mutuals, they h.id no excuse whatever; they had
their full nine out in all the pride of health and strength,
and yet, withall this at their bask, they allowed their
opponents to make toenly-one runs out of ticenty-Jlve with
out being entitled to one of them. We disapprove en
rire’y of the press pitching into a club, and thereby dis
couraging them, because they happen not to coma up to
the popular expectation. We object to the principle of
striking a man when ho is down, but we do thmic that
such an exhibition ns the Mutuals made on Thursday
not to be allowed to pass without “ improving the
occasion ” by administering to them a well deserved cas
tigation. With the first-class individual players which
compose the Mutual “combination” nine, we maintain
that they ought to beat every club in the country. The
Red Stockings went through one entire season without
losing a game, and they had not nine men who, individ
ually, were such powerful placers as the Mutualshave;
but the Red men bad discipline and training. It certainly
is a di agreeable task at all times to find fault, and it
may appear unmanly to rejoice over the misfortunes of
a friend, but we must admit, although we should like to
have seen the Mutes emulate the successful career of
the renowned Red Stocking nine, by winning every
game they played this season, we are glad they received
such a thorough. sound and disgraceful drubbing as they
did from the Trojans, as it will wake them up to a sense
of their weakness, and in all probability be the means
of making them play ever so much more steadily than
they would otherwise have done in some more important
game The boys must remember that the White Stock
ings will be on here this week, and in them they will
find antagonists worthy of their skill, men, too, who
will leave no effort untried to defeat them. Not only
will the eyes of all the .Empire State be fixed upon the
Mutes in that game, but the result will be anticipated
witn a feverish anxiety which, possibly, no other contest
during the season will excite. And this feeling will be
shared in by nearly every lover of the game throughout
the country. The Forest City nine, of Rockford, and
the White Stockings will make their appearance among
us thia week, and if the various clubs have sense enough
to charge only twenty-five cents admission fee, they will
reap a golden harvest; but if they maintain the fifty
cent imposition, only one or two games will be patron
ized. Let them remember the nursery tale of the goose
and the golden eggs.
On Thursday, the first game for the championship of
1871, which the Gothamites and Brooklynites have been
permitted to witness, took place on the Union ground,
and a more miserable exhibition of the way “how not to
do it,” could scarcely be imagined. The contestants for
championship honors on this occasion were the Mutual
nine of Now York, and the Haymaker nine of Troy.
The latter club had been defeated by the Mutuals on the
18th inst., at Troy, by a score of 14 to 3, and, although
there were some excuses made for the Trojans, in conse
quence of their nine not being thoroughly organized on
that occasion, the general opinion was that the Mutuals
were much too strong a team for them. The present
game, however, created a deal of excitement, and about
4,C00 submitted to the disgraceful extortion of fifty
cents admission fee to witness whkt was anticipated
would be a close and exciting game. Never were poor
confiding mortals more completely taken in. Had the
charge for admission been five cents instead of fifty, it
would have been too much. Had the muffs made by the
Mutual nine, been less frequenter less flagrant, the cry
that they had sold the game would doubtless have been
raised; but the play was simply and so utterly detesta
ble, that it was impossible to come to such a conclusion.
No club desirous of throwing a game, would have dared,
to make such an exhibition.
Play was called at 3:10, the Haymakers being the first
to go to the bat. and, before they left it for the first inn
ing, they had scored six runs, to only one of which were
they entitled. The Mutes followed, but notwithstand
ing the reputation they have been acquiring as power
ful batters, failed to score even a single base. This,
however, did not in the least discourage or dampen the
ardor or confidence of the Mutual admirers, who, when
it was remarked that six runs were a good lead, replied
with, “O, you know the Mutuals always begin badly,”
and comfored themselves’with thatlreflection. The sec
ond inning saw both sides whitewashed, but in the
third inning, through gross errors on the part of both
teams, both sides put on two runs. The Haymakers,
through good batting, and assisted by a muff from
Pearce, put on three runs, while the Mutes, partly by
muffs of the Haymaker nine, and a splendid three base
hit by Walters, scored four run-, only two of which were
earned. This, the fourth inning, was the first in which
the Mutes had earned a first base hit, and in it they
only earned two, but the little spurt at batting which
they had just made began to revive the hopes of their
backers which had begun to droop slightly, and “now
they’re off ’ was the cry. They were not off, however, or
if they were, it was off their play, for in the fifth inning
the Trojans scored one run, and in the sixth, five, to
none of which were they entitled, while the “ Combina
tion nine,” as the Mutes have been styled, only managed
to reach their first base once on a clean hit, and could
not score a run at all. The game was now 17 to 6in
favor of the Trojans, but still the Ne w Yorkers had hopes
their pets would do something worthy of the club and
City they represented. Little, however, did they know
to what extent their pets could disgrace themselves.
In the seventh inning, the Trojans were whitewashed,
and the Mutes scored a run, but the eighth inning has
been very properly characterized in a cotemporary as a
“burlesque upon the game.” In it the Haymakers
scored seven runs, of which they did not earn one—the
muffing of the Mutual nine being of the moat childish
description. A bud throw by McMullen enabled the
Mutes to put on two runs, and they earned one more,
making the game stand 24 to 10 against New York. In
the ninth inning, the Haymakers scored and earned one
run, the Mutes having actually roused themselves into
such a state of activity as to make a double play, much
to the astonishment of the spectators. The Mutes then
went to the bat for the last time, and were whitewashed
for the fifth time during the game. That the Mutes did
not receive a more complete dressing was owing to the
bad play of the Haymakers, who played anything but a
first class game, although it was far superior to that
played by the Mutuals. We sincerely hope it will not be
our hard fate to be compelled to chronicle such another
exhibition during the present season. The following is

These clubs met on the Capitoline Grounds, on Fri
day, and played a game in presence of about two hun
dred spectators who were most heartily disgusted with
the three hours’exhibition to which they were treated.
Neither club seemed to play with the slightest anima
tion, and the general conclusion arrived at was that
the sooner a hospital was opened in Washington for the
disabled members of the Olympic nine, the better it
would be for all concerned. As for the Stars, they ought
never to have a chance of winning another game. They
were nine runs ahead when they had finished their
eighth inning, and, notwithstanding only one run had
been made by the Olympics when two men were out, the
Stars allowed them to’ score eleven ruqs before the third
man was disposed of. The following is the score:

Umpire—Mr. Kenny, Atlantic Club. Time of game—
Two hours and fifty minutes.
The Mutuals cannot be said to be in want of practice,
such as it is, though whether it is likely to be of any
advantage to them remains to be seen. If proper atten
tion be given to the points in the game by tho profes
sionals, no matter who their antagonists may bo, every
opportunity they have for practice will be of service to
them, but if they do not play, and play all they know,
from the word “go,” because their opponents are
juniors, they would be much better without the prac
tice, as it not only fosters careless habits, but inspires a
feeling of false confidence in themselves, and their
power to retrieve previous mistakes, which will be sure
to fail them whenever they come against anything like
a first-class club. Their object ought to be, in every
game, to prevent their adversaries obtaining even a
single base if possible, and every effort on their part
should be strained to effect that object. On Tuesday
the “champions” played the Silver Stars, juniors, and,
after a sharp and fairly contested game, defeated them
easily by the following score:

One hour and thirty minutes.
On Wednesday, the time-honored Eckfords were in
the field against the Burnside Club, one of the oldest
amateur clubs in existence, and defeated them by a
score of 23 to 3. In this game, the Eckfords showed
some good play, and displayed sound judgment in not
undervaluing the strength of their opponents. Indeed,
the Eckfords are making a much better record against
their junior opponents than their more powerful neigh
bors, the Mutuals, and this simply from the fact that
they do not play loosely or carelessly. In the presont
game, they only permitted the Bumside nine to get
to their first base four times. The following is the

On Monday last the Mutuals met the Flyaways on the
Union ground to j?lny their return game. The Flyaways
are the junior champions, and play a good sound game,
they are strong at the bat, and exceedingly sharp and
expert in the field. On the present occasion, however,
they were short of two of their nine, and this so mili
, tated against their chance as to completely destroy all
interest in the game. The Mutes were aho short‘twn>-of

The (rial of Edwards and Collins yesterday morning,
brought an immense crowd of snorting celebrities to
the Couit of Special Sessions. Long before the opening
of the court every seat was occupied by
and many were the speculations indulged in as to tho
fate of the unfortunate pair. There was an extra force
of police on hand from the Sixth Preoinct, soms of
whom were stationed outside, to prevent an over
crowding of the court room. The jolly face of Harry
Hill was visible in one of the front seats, and not far off
was seated the notorious Reddy the Blacksmith* Gen
tlemen of the legal profession filled the innsr areas of
the court, and conspicuous among them was tho portly
figure of William F. Howe, with his glistening dia
monds and green necktie. The press was largely repre
sented. When the case was called on intense desire to
obtain a good look at the distinguished prisoners was
manifested, Justice Dowling, who looked unusual.y
well and hearty, presided alone. Ab eleven o’clock
were called to the bar. The former looked somewhat
battered, especially about tho eyes, which were slighty
swollen, while the latter looked hard and thin, and
natural as usual. In answer to the call of the court,
five witnesses, including Detectives Dunne and Dwyer,
of the Central Office, came forward and testified suc
cessively to their having witnessed tho fight, and the
detectives further testified to having made the arrests.
this, William F. Howe, who appeared for the de
fendants, rose and made the following remarks:
Your honor, without entering into the merits or de
merits of the occupation in which the court will assume
these men were engaged, I know your honor will give
the decision authorized by law. I knew the public know
through the press, and from personal obseivation. that
in many instances your ho lor and Superintendent Kelso
have dons your best to suppress many public unwhole
some violations ot tho law, both as regards prize-fight
ers, policy-dealers, houses of-prostitution, etc. And
whatever may be tho motive which actuates each of you,
ho.vever praiseworthy, however commensurate with the
full tide oi public opinion, there is yet a reservation.
It is this: that whatever the offense persons may be
accused of in this court, they shall, veradventure, only
be convicted when legal evidence is given, and legal evi
dence made out and established. In tuis case I know
that your honor is desirous for the purpose of suppress
ing these brutal exhibitions. While I commend your
honor’s course in endeavoring to suppress such offenses,
I have to state, sir, that, in my opinion, you wi 1 not be
serving the interest of justice, serving the public or the
community, by rendering a conviction, however much
in harmony with the public sentiment. They can be
discharged by your honor with a wholesome r -primand:
and that reprimand, emanating from you, sir. will do
more tu deter prize-fighting for tho future, than any
conviction that could be made and any sentence that
could not be supported. The end of public justice will
be thereby attained. The objection 1 have to make, ypur
honor, is simply this: that the case is not within the
jurisdiction of the court.
Mr. Howe then went on to prove that the court had
no legal jurisdiction to enforce punishment in the case,
and then proceeded to state that prize-fighting was
patronized in England by some of the greatest states
men of this century. For instance, in the well-known
international fight between Sayers and Heenan, Lord
Palmerston, tho great English statesman, attended;
and even some had hinted (and in making this observa
tion Mr. H. didn’t wish to be looked on as a heretic)
that his Grace, the Archbishop of Canterbury, attended.
In conclusion, Mr. Howe urged his honor to admit them
to bail; saying it would have a more salutary effect than
anv other punishment he could possibly inflict.
There was a short pause after Mr. Howe’s speech,
when Judge Dowling, amid breathless silence, proceeded
to speak as follows:
Collins and Edwards, you have been tried for a vio
lation of the law known to the people of New York as
an act to prevent end punish prize fighting. The evi
dence, the Court thinks, is conclusive of your guilt.
Snch practices have a tendency to encourage a spirit of
idleness in young men, to prevent them from working,
and from living so . as to obtain an honest livelihood.
That you are residents of New York is beyond all doubt.
You left New York, you went into an adjoining county;
engaged in a prize fight; all preliminaries were settled
ana disputes arranged. The referees, seconds, spong
ers, and all preliminaries attending a prize fight were
arranged. A witness here swears that you went on his
grounds, and that he identifies you, there is no doubt.
There is sufficient evidence that you were the parties.
You returned back to your homes, you are found by the
police, arrested, and brought into this court. The ma
jesty of the law must be sustained. The people of the
State of New York are your accusers. They sav through
me to you this must stop. Prize fighting must have an
end here. I cannot take the suggestion of the counsel
to admit you to bail for a given time, for there is no
peace within you as long as you are at liberty. You say
that you nave made it your trades in England. If you
have, you must return to England after your time is
out, and follow yonr vocation there. This country will
not hold you if that’s to be your trade, and that country
you can’t go to, for they have passed an act for notorious
criminals, which are known as persons who cannot be
redeemed—men who have made pugilism their business
—and that act was passed in Parliament for the sup
pression of prize fighting. Then you had to come to our
shores. This country was open to receive you if you be
haved yourselves. You two, however, have shown some
spirit, not like two others of your calling. A man named
Coburn challenged the whole world, and dare not meet
any one. It is time that a stop should be put to such
things. There are exhibition bills every day on our
walls, advertising sparring matches and the like. I will
now set an example of you two men. Prize figuring
must stop. The law will deal you both supn a blow as
will knock you out of time. Tho sentence of the Court
is that you be imprisoned in the Penitentiary for twelve
months each, and pay a fine of SI,OOO, to stand commit
ted until paid.
The bruisers took the sentence with great coolness,
and were at once escorted to the prison.
■William McAlpine, the umpire of the fight, wag next
called, and pleaded guilty. The Justice said, in a sort
of ironical tone, that, in consideration of his plea, he’d
give him only six monthg in the Penitentiary, and ask
him to pay a fine of SSOO. ,
The court-room rapidly thinned after this affair was
disposed of; the ordinary routine business of the court,
which was not of much importance, went on. The
court adjourned early.
The regular monthly meeting of the Seventeenth As
sembly District Republican Association, was held at
the “ Wigwam,” in Forty-ninth street, on Monday even
ing last, Hon. George P. Bradford, the President, in
the Chair. There was a very large attendance, owing to
the excitement occasioned among the Republicans of
the district by the fact that at the previous meeting of
the Association the Custom House officeholders had
packed the room, and by a small majority adopted reso
lutions sustaining Collector Tom Murphy, and urging a
reorganizations of the party. After the reading of the
minutes, Mr. E. L. Bullock moved to rescind the reso
lutions adopted at the previous meeting. This was
strenuously opposed by Mr. D. B. Mellish and other
Custom House officials. The ayes and noes were called,
and Mr. Bullock’s motion was adopted by the vote of
112 to 66. v
Resolutions endorsing the action of the General Com
mittee, in refusing to reorganize the party, and con
demning the course pursued by unprincipled office
holders in endeavoring to disrupt the party, were, after
some filibustering on the part of Tom Murphy’s men,
adopted by the same vote.
On motion of Mr. Morris Ellinger, the resolutions
adopted at the previous meeting were, by a large ma
jority, expunged from the minutes.
A communication was received from the General Ohn-’
mittee, declaring tho seats of John R. Russell and E.
O. Jenkins vacant for non-attendance, and Wm. Dun
canson and Franz Varino were elected to fill their

Roundsman Michael Flanagan, a zealous and efficient
officer, attached to the Twenty-eighth Precinct, early
yesterday morning, found Thomas Bogan, an elderly
ruffian, living at the corner of Hudson and King streets,
acting in a very disorderly manner. Roundsman Flana
gan attempted to arrest Bogan, and the latter at once
turned upon him, and assaulted him. He was finally
taken to the police station, and a charge of disorderly
conduct made against him. While the officer was mak
ing the charge, Bogan turned suddenly upon him, and
The brute was at once seized by Flanagan and some
other officers, secured, and locked up. Yesterday, he
was taken before Justice Cox, and locked up to await a
trial. Flanagan escaped with slight injuries.
To the Editor of the New York Dispatch:
As a simple act of courtesy I request the publication of
the subjoined communication. The statement in your
paper of Sunday is best answered in this way:
Yours respectfully,
E. S. Caldwell,
of Counsel for Gen. Viele.
New York, May 23d, 1871.
To the Editor of the Tribune :
Sib: Uninfluenced by any other motive than duty to
my children, and at their urgent solicitation to provide
a ainst the contingency of my death. I have been com
pelled to seek in the courts of law the only relief
that is open to us. An ex parte report of the proceed
ings does great injustice to myself and a cruel wrong to
a most estimable lady. I will not in the interest of pub
lic morality make public the return duly made by me to
the writ of habeas corpus, i leave the matter entirely
with the Court, where alone it belongs, and shall test
satisfied in the justice of its decision. I only ask for the
sake of those to whom the courtesy is due, that the
press will not add unnecessarily to the sorrow of my
deeply-afflicted family, the youngest of whom is six
years old and the eldest eighteen.

Hobbible Accident—An Aged Chip
ple Impaled.—Yesterday afternoon, while Patrick
Brady, a one-legged cripple, aged seventy years, living at
No. 237 East Twenty-fifth street, was passing the corner
of Second avenue and Twenty-fourth street, he was run
against by a runaway horse, thrown violently against an
iron railing, and the point o.f one of the pickets entered
his left jaw and passed through, coming out at the back
of the head, causing a horrible wound, and one that will
almost certainly prove fatal. The unfortunate man was
removed to Bellevue Hospital, in an unconscious condi
tion. The driver of the horse was arrested *nd held to

talk abo u t to W n
f ’Bloody 'ard on the -Boysv* You
Know.” ‘
The effect of the sentsneas of Collins af.id Edwards by
Justice Dooling, was visible yesterday and 1 last evening
m all the saloons araund town where “ sports'**' most do
congregate. They could scarcely realize the’ fad that
the authorities had at length made up* their miude
to put an
They had been allowed to run so long that they could
not behove at first that the whole thing was-i Battling
but a stupedous joke, one of those ebullitions- of fua
for which his Honor, Justice Dowling,- is famed. Thara
was no rubbing it out, howater. Tfte’men wore sen
tenced to one year’s imprisonment and a fine of sl,oo®
each, they to stand committed until the fine is paid;
plaoa, in East Houston street, last evening, a large
crowd was assembled. Many of the -most noted pugilists
wr-re there, and of course, the leading topic was the fate
of the unfortunate light weights. One big English
buffer thought it “bloody’ard hon the Bids that they
couldn’t ’eve a little turn-hup without the beaks put
ting their bloody mugs in the dish.” Others vented
their opinion of the matter in language wherein ex
pletives abounded, and whose tone was anything but
complimentary to the magistrate. Others, and among
them the veteran Harry, kept quiet, saying little, and
that little in monosyllables, except to the few news
paper men with whom he was acquainted. These
latter, men who had either been engaged as seconds or
backers of the men, or else were present -at the fight.
In either case, they were liable to the law, and could be
arrested and imprisoned. The crowd assembled at
in Broadway, near Houston street, was of a much
rougher character than those at Harry’s. Loud and
frequent denunciations of the police, “Joe” Dowling,
and the “ bloody institutions of this infernal country,”
were the sounds most frequently heard, varied with
drinking the health of the absent ones in vile liquor.
in West Houston street, much the same kind of a crowd
was assembled as that in Reddy’s. Of course the same -
subject was uppermost in the minds of all. and of
course was the only one talked about. Clark, who was a
short time ago locked up in the Tombs, on a charge of
stealing $6,0)0 from George W. Hill, alias Coolie Keyes,
a noted gambler, during a debauch in a house of prosti
tution in East Twenty-sixth street, “knew how it was
himself,” and freely expressed his sympathy for the
“unfortunate young fellows who had to break stone for
a year, and maybe wouldn’t be let out thou along of
their fine.” The condemned fighters were personally
known to most of those present, and. much genuine
sympathy was expressed for them.
In the “Capitol” saloon, in West Twenty-third street,
opposite Booth’s Theatre,
he being one of the proprietors of the place, there was
a well-dressed crowd of gamblers and sporting men.
The fate of the imprisoned men seemed here to be of
secondary importance. The question most eagerly dis*
cussed was in how far it would affect Mace. It is notori*
ous that he has gone to Kansas City to fight Joe Co*
burn, the latter having also left town within a day or
two, to be near the ground designated as the day of the
fight draws near. It was agreod that if .Collins and Ed
wards could be sentenced to imprisonment and fined fol
leaving the county to engage in a prize fight, certainly
the same penalty could be visited on
who had loft the State for the same purpose. Several of
the more intelligent confirmed this argument by quot
ing the law on the subject. It was deemed almost cer*
tain that if Mace and Coburn fought, they would be ar
rested on their return, and if convicted, sentenced to
imprisonment and fined. It was argued that the au
thorities could not do less and be consistent. It .would
seem rather too one-sided to gobble up such small fry as
Collins and Edwards and let such noted bruisers as Mac*
and Cobunj and their backers violate the law with im
These arguments were used in the saloon where Co
burn made his headquarters, in Third avenue, near
Nineteenth street, and also in. the saloons where th®
matter was understood. For once
and they have made the most of it. As one of them
tersely expressed it, “ The underpinning is just knocked
clean out from prize fighting for a time,” and this is tho
universal feeling among the sporting fraternity. From
whatever motive this sudden awakening of the author!*
ties to tho evils of prize fighting, policy playing, and
other evils may have sprung, there is no question but
that the raids made on their votaries have done much
good, and the community at large expresses its thank®
for the services rendered.
Without wishing to be considered egotistical, we must
lay claim to some credit for this needel reform of abuses
that have grown up in our city. The Dlspatch has
pointed out these evils from week to weak, and given
namesand facts that left no room for doubt who was
intended to be hit. We propose to continue this work
from time to time. We have reason to know from the
support extended to the Dispatch, and for which wo
return our thanks, that the public will support.an hon
est, outspoken, and tearless journal.
The Ninth Regiment turned out yesterday on general
parade, 535 strong. It was tie first occasion of the regi
ment’s public parade since Evacuation Day, and a nota
ble improvement was apparent since then. Col. Fisk
himself was seated on a tremendous black charger, and
looked particularly well in a set of new regimentals.
The ban! was ninety-six strong, and was clothed in red
broadcloth, very splendid and prominent.
The regiment marched from the Grand Opera House
down Twenty-third street to Fifth avenue, and
thence to Broadway and the City Hall, where they were
reviewed by the Mayor. At the armory where the regi
ment finally brought up there was a fine collation served
up provided by the Colonel as a gratification to the
men after their long march. After the collation Col-
Fisk was called on for a speech, and spoke of-the splendid
appearnce the regiment made. He particularly advert
ed to the fact that on so hot day a only two men drop
ped out of the ranks. He saidjthe regiment might be
proud of its war record, and he hoped that if called on
again, it would be as ready to respond as formerly. H®
ended by a toast, “ God help the Ninth.”
Coroner Keenan was yesterday requested to. invest!*
gate the circumstances connected with the death ef
Diedrich Kruse, a German, who died from injuries re*
ceived on Thursday, while at work in the sugar refinery
of Messrs., Bruges, Ockershausen & Co., at No. 461
Washington street. Deceased was employed to take
charge of a large iron pipe communicating with the
water-tank on the roof, and leading downward through
the lower floors. On Thursday, while Mr. Kruse wai
working near, this pipe, from some unexplained
it broke short off, and. falling on him, he received |
fracture of the arm and internal injuries, causing ilia
death in Bellevue Hospital. No one apparently is abl<
to tell precisely how the accident occurred. The matte*
will be investigated by the Qoroner.
A Panel House Broken Up bt THS
Police.—Captain Burden and a force of police of th a
Twenty-ninth Precinct, early yesterday morning mad«
a descent on the panel house, No. 101 West Twenty-sixth
street, and arrested the proprietress, Hattie Lewis, to-t
gether with Mary Brown, of No. 225 Norfolk street, Kitty
Clark, of No. 16 Broome street, Thomas Brown, of No.
173Delancey street, and Stephen Sherwood, cf No. 62
Greene street. All were yesterday committed by Jus
tice Cox. The place was one of the most notorious in
t hat famed neighborhood.
A Genial Host.— Thomas P. Walsh,
who is well known to this community as a genial and
pleasant gentleman, has opened a sample-room on th®
north-west corner of Broadway and Eighth street*
Those who know Mr. Walsh need not bo told that h®
will keep none but the best of wines» liquors, and cigars,
and that his house will be one of the best ordered and
conducted in the city. He can’t but succeed, as he has
hosts of friends and well-wishers.
The King of Clubs. —Sim. D. Ke«
hoe, the Indian clubbist, our readers will be pleased to
learn, though badly bruised, had no bones broken by
his accident week before last. He expects to be able tq
swing the clubs as lively as ever in a few days. It takei
pretty rough knocks to seriously injure a master of the
Indian club exercise.
That eminent and agreeable pro*
fessor of terpsiohorean art, Mr. M. J. Sause, will giv®
the last of his really charming soirees at Masonic Hall,

to a very large circle of the lovers of the “light fan*
tastic.” to find that this will be the last of these very
agreeable reunions for the present season.
All Henry Ward Beecher’s sufferings from spasmodit

have been continued and exaggerated by his irritable
temper and violent freaks. About the time he wap first

the parts, mistook the place where the truss should be
Dr. Sherman, seeing Mr. Beecher’s error, once took,
his case in hand, and notwithstanding his repeated ap*
plications, Mr. Beecher, trdfa recant developments, is
still quite bad.
Dr. S. is most sanguine in eventually curing Mr.
Beecher’s breech, though his rupture is of that spas
modic character that affects the heart and mental or
ganization to an alarming extent. Strangulated rup
ture is equaled only by hydrophobia, but Mr. Beecher’s
case will hardly result in that. Avoiding what he has
indulged in, with a composed, mind, will do muoh to
ward preventing it. Mr. Beecher’s tenacity in sticking
to Dr. Sherman is the best proof of his ifiterest in the
doctor’s abilities.— Daily Press.
