B. R. B.— l. It is impossible to in
form you where the firtt church or public place of wor
ihip was located, as edifices for purposes of adoration
uust necessarily have been in use prior to the introduc
tion of history itself. People who recognized a deity of any
kind would naturally assemble together to worship that
deity, and buildings for that purpose would be a conse
quence. Such questions as this are unanswerable. 2.
•‘Can you give me the exact terms used between Gen.
Grant and Gen. Lee on the occasion of the surrender of
the latter? Did Gen. Grant not stipulate that the
whole Confederate army lay down their arms, and that
on doing so, a*d submitting to the laws of the United
States, they would remain unmolested?” Gen. Grant’s
propositions for the surrender of Gen. Lee’s army were
pot made verbally, but by letter, and were as follows:
That Gen. Lee surrender the Army of North Virginia,
then under his command, on the following terms: Rolls
of all the officers and men to be made in dupilicate; one
Copy to be given to an officer, to be designated by Gen.
Grant, the other to be retained by any officer that Gen.
Lee might designate. The officers to give their indi
vidual paroles not to take up arms against the Govern
ment of the United States, until properly exchanged,
and each company or regimental commander to sign a
like parole for the men of their command. Each officer
and man to be allowed to return to his home, and not
to be disturbed by U. S. authority, as long as they ob
served their paroles, and the laws in force where they
resided. This arrangement was, after some hesitation,
finally agreed to by Gen. Lee, but referred only to the
Army of Northern Virginia—not the entire Confederate
army. The conversation between Grant and Lee, on
the occasion of their memorable meeting, was brief, and
related only to business matters affecting to the surren
der. The txad words are not recorded.
Creditor.— ln the State of New
York, actions upon judgments or decrees of any court or
courts of the United States; upon sealed instruments;
or for the recovery of real estate, must be commenced
within twenty years after the cause of action having
accrued. All actions upon unsealed contracts, obliga
tions, or liabilities, express or implied; for trespass on
real estate; for taking, detaining, or injuring goods or
chattels; for the specific recovery of personal property;
for criminal conversation; and for injury to the person
or rights of another—within six years after the cause of

discovery by the aggrieved party of the facts upon which
the penalty or forfeiture attached, or the liability was
created. In case of open accounts, cause of action ac
crues from the time when proof is given of the last item
in the account. If a person entitled to bring an action
be, at the time of the cause of action, a minor, a lunatic,
or imprisoned, the time of such disability is not a part
Of the time limited for the commencement of the action,
except that the period within which the action must be
brought, cannot be extended more than five years by
BUoh disability.
C. T.—“ I would ask through your
columns whether the Catholic churches of this city
rank as theatres or not? On Sunday last my wife and
daughter thought proper to attend the church of St‘
Francis Xavier in Sixteenth street, but on presenting
themselves were refused admission unless they sub
mitted to a charge of twenty cents each for a seat in
the aisles, or fifteen in the gallery. Is that a Christian
spirit or one likely to redeem those who may consider
themselves outside of the pale of the church?” On
first sight it would appear as if our correspondent had
very good cause for complaint in this matter, but on
making inquiries we ascertain that in Catholic churches
it is customary to have a certain number of religious
Bervices every Sunday for those unable to contribute to
the support of the church, and that at all other services
the seats are, reasonably enougji we think, reserved for
the pew-holders of the congregation. Apart, however,
from this arrangement, the refusal may have arisen from
the ignorance of the usher or party in charge at
the door. “0. T.” must also bear in mind that on ac
count of the impressive ceremonies and fine music at
tached to the services in Catholic churches, many are at
tracted thither through curiosity, and to the annoyance
Of the regular attendants, thus rendering some pre
cautionary measures necessary.
Soldier.— “ Was there a law passed
in Congress giving SIOO bounty to soldiers who enlisted
in 1861 for three years, or during the war, and if «n- '-ho
shall I write to about it 7 * riy tne provisions of the
Equalization Bounty Bill, approved July 28th, 1866,
“Every soldier who onlisted in the army of the United
States after the 19th day of April, 1861. for a period of
not less than three years, and having served the term of
his enlistment, has been honorably discharged, and who
has received, or who is entitled to receive, from the Uni
ted States under the existing laws, a bounty of one
hundred dollars and no more; and any soldier enlisted
for not less than three years who has been honorably
discharged on account of wounds received in the line of
duty, and the widow, minor children, or parents, in the
order named, of any such soldier who died in the service
of the United States, or of disease or wounds contracted
while in the service, and in the line of duty, shall be
paid the additional bounty of one hundred dollars
hereby authorized.” If the above is your case, write to
the office of the Paymaster General for a form and in
structions how to proceed in the claiming of such
bounty.
Bomba.— l. “Which American city
is called the City of Elms, and why is it so called ?” The
City of New Haven is designated the City of Elms on
account of many of the streets being thickly shaded
with lofty elms. 2. “Which is the City of Straits, and
why is it so called ?” The City of Straits is a name com
monly given to Detroit, which is situated on the west
bank of the river or strait connecting Lake St. Clair
with Lake Erie. Detroit is a French word meaning
■•'etrait.” ✓
A Subscriber .—"Please inform me
on what ticket the Hen. James Brooks ran for Congress
some fourteen or fifteen years ago in the Sixth Congres
sional District?” The Hon. James Brooks was elected
member of Congress for the Sixth District in 1848, and
again in 1850, each time on the Whig ticket. He ran on
the same ticket in the Eighth Congressional District in
1852, but was defeated. In 1862, and for each successive
term since, he has been re-elected for the Eighth Con
gressional District as an independent Democrat.
C. 11. D.— The first steamship that
over crossed the Atlantic was the Savannah, from Sa
vannah, Georgia, to Liverpool, England, in 1819. The
first to come to America after the return of the Savan
nah, in the same year, were the Sirius and Great West
ern, both of which arrived in NeW*York harbor on the
same day. April 23,1837. The Great Western was from
Bristol, and made the passage in 14% days against heavy
winds and a rough sea.
G. F. B.— We do not know who
the particular female novelist at present engaged on
’ The Life of Christ” is, nor do we look upon such an
announcement as at all interesting, inasmuch as female
novelists are not, as a rule, successful biographers, either
religious or profane. At the same time, we perceive
nothing extraordinary in the fact of a novelist being en
gaged on a religious work more than any other descrip
tion of author.
11. B.— l. “In what country of Ire
land did the family of Charles O’Conor, the distin
guished lawyer, originate ?” The O’Conors were a dis
tinguished Connaught family, boasting royal blood, and
numbering several noted kings in their list. 2. “Is
there any difference between the name Connor and
O’Oonnor?” None, save that some particular branch
of the family may haw discarded the O.
J. ll—l. By calling at the store of
the American News Company in Nassau street you will
have your choice of many excellent works on book
keeping, but our recommending any particular work in
these columns would be simply a gratis advertisement
for the author. 2 Horace Greeley was born at Amherst,
in New Hampshire, Feb. 3d, 1811.
Citizen.— “l was born in Germany
and came here with my father when only two years of
age. My father became $ citizen of the United States.
Will I require to take out naturalization papers or
not?” No, the citizenship of the father naturalizes all
minor children. If you have attained the requisite age
you are entitled to vote.
2?oy.—“ What author was it who

KEW YORK, AUGUST 4, 1872.
NATIONAL REPUBLICAN NOMINATIONS.
FOR PRESIDENT,
ULYSSES S. GRANT.
FOR VICE PRESIDENT,
HENRY WILSON.
TRIED AND FOUND WORTHY.
In the Winter of 1861-62, when many good
men despaired of the Republic—when McClel
lan was timidly watching the enemy in front
of Washington—when traitors boasted tbat
the rebellion could nover be crushed, and
when doubt as to the loyalty of many promi
nent officers made the Unionists sick at heart,
there came from the West the glad news that
the enemy had been defeated. The news
cheered the drooping spirits of loyalists, and
showed tbat the men of the North, though not
so boastful as their Southern brothers, were
terrible in battle and magnanimous in victory.
From that time the country turned its eyes to
the gallant army and its daring and persever
ing chieftain, with the hope that the man to
lead our armies had been found. Battle after
battle'was fought, and that one army—not bet
ter in material than our other armies—was
always victories. From victory to victory it
went, until the wonderful Grand Qulf cam
paign and the capture of Vicksburg crowned it
with undying fame. The leader of that army
was now called to the command of all the
armies of the Republic. Then began the ter
rible struggle with the accomplished Lee’s
gallant army. How truly Lee spoke at the
last conference with bis generals, after tno
battle of the Wilderness, when he said : “ Gen
tlemen, the Army of the Potomac has at last a
commander, and the Confederacy is dead.”
Step by step Leo fought until driven under the
shadow of the Rebel capital. It was no holi
day sport for either army—but stern war
waged by armies of equal courage, and led by
c.,—cty,v dui rue persistency of
the Northern chieftain overcame all difficul
ties, and the annihilation of the Army of
Northern Virginia re-united the States under
one Constitution, and gave peace to the sorely
afflicted land.
The man who gave us victory in the West,
who won peace and union for tho country, was
Gen. Grant. Ho became the people’s hero—
not a showy, theatric hero, but a bravo, calm,
persistent, and modest hero—a true type of the
best American patriotism and heroism. And
this Is the man who is now assailed by book
worms whose elegant leisure he insured, and
whose liberty he preserved. This bravo, calm,
patient man, is now described as a “ despot,”
“a gift taker,” “a timid and vacillating states
man,” and “a dishonest Chief Magistrate.”
In the midst of all this abuse, where the lan
guage is ransacked for adjectives to hurl at
him, he bears himself with tho same calm dig
nity which ha displayed when momentary re
pulse mot some portion of his army. “ Tray,
Blanohe and Sweetheart,” are all barking at his
heels, but ho unheedingly pursues tbe even
tenor of his duties, doing them without show,
or straining for dramatic effect,' Übaer his
rule tho bands of marauders upd murderers at
the South have boon crusLod out, tho whisky
rings broken to pieces, counterfeiters driven
from the country or locked up in prisons, the
Alabama question in a fairway for honorable
settlement, and the country respected abroad,
and the people enjoying peace and prosperity
at homo. His has not been a showy adminis
tration, but it has been a sate one. His cab
inet officers bavo performed their duties, in
the main, in tho same unpretentious manner
which distinguishes tbo President. Errors
have been committed, but the errors have not
qeen of a grave nature. Mistakes have been
made, but none on the side of injustice or dis
loyalty to freedom.
Shall wo now set aside tho man who preserv
ed the Union, and who has shown himself an
able, honest and fearless President, and place
in his office a man untried in executive posi
tion ? We have tried Grant, and found him
capable—shall we put him asido fora man of
theories, whose life has been given to the study
of principles, but who has no practice in rul
ing? Shall we remove the man of action to
give place to the man of words? Is there a
man in this country who would not sooner have
General Grant at the head of affairs in time of
danger to tho country, no matter whence that
danger came, than Horace Greeley ? No dan
ger now threatens the country, but who can
tell how soon it may! There was no cloudin
the political sky when James Buchanan be
came President, yet ere tho close of his term
the people of fifteen States were rushing to
arms to attack the life of the Republic. Had
Grant been President is it likely that tho re
bellion would have assumed the magnitude
which it did ? With all respect for the person
al character of Mr. Greeley, and the high re
gard for the service he has rendered liberty and
progress in the past, we hold him to be unfitted
for President. Ho has not the self-poise neces
sary for a ruler. Where he should act ho would
talk and theorize—where ho should bo calm
and firm he would be angry yet hesitating—
where he should be severe for the good of the
people, he would bo forgiving. He is an un
safe man to trust with the reins of government
of a great nation. Grant has been proved
worthy by the most trying ordeal. And Grant
is backed by the loyalists of tho country, while
Greeley’s backers are the secessionists, tbe
copperheads, and a few disappointed Republi
cans. Can there be a doubt as to which of
these men tbo people of the United States will
elect President ? Patriotism points unhesita
tingly to Grant as tha proper choice of a grate
ful and intelligent people.
The Only Cube.—Mexico, for forty
years in a state of chronic revolution is just
now at its worst. Tbo sudden, unexpected
death of Juarez has left that stricken country
without any ruler at all. The only cure for
Mexican chaotic government is annexation to
the United State*.
NEW YORK DISPATCH. *
NOT MUCH OF AN AVALANCHE.
North Carolina, from all appearances, has
gone for the Democrats. We hoped, but
scarcely expected, that it would be carried by
the Republicans. The Democratic majority
will be about the same as in 1870 —that is, in
tbe neighborhood of 5,000. We see nothing in
the North Carolina election to dishearten Re
publicans. nor yet to call forth the jubilation
in which Democrats have indulged for the past
two days. North Carolina is not one of the
pivotal States, and it will take a great many
North Carolinas to overcome tbe votes of the
lour great States which are sure to go for
Grant—New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio and Il
linois. These four States are entitled to 109
electoral votes, a number nearly equal to that
of the combined electoral votes of the former
slave States. We can see nothing in tho situa
tion to dismay Republicans, nothing to make
them doubtful of the result in tbe Presidential
canvass. The election in North Carolina
proves one thing: Notwithstanding that
Charles Sumner and Horace Greeley are
arrayed against the Republican party, the ne
groes cannot be induced to desert to tho enemy.
They know who have been their friends, and
who their enemies. They may still have faith
in Mr. Sumner and Mr. Greeley, but they
know that behind them are the men who have
held as part of their political creed that a ne
gro had no rights which a white man was
bound to respect. They live among tho white
men of tho South, and know that no matter
bow specious may be their talk of accepting
the situation in good faith, there is a great
deal of the old spirit of caste left, and tbat
though they would not be remanded to slavery,
laws would be passed which would practically
deprive them of all rights as freemen. Know
ing these things, it is not astonishing that
they voted solidly for the Republican party.
Tbe sophistry of disappointed men did not
mislead the “ignorant darkies,” as the Demo
crats elegantly call them, nor induce them to
desert the party whose record as the champion
of liberty and political equality of all men can
not be gainsaid.
The defeat in North Carolina will have the
effect of rousing indolent Republicans to ac
tion, and in the coming September and October
elections there will be a vigor, energy and en
thusiasm which shall show to the enemy that
the party of liberty under law and Union, with
freedom, has lost none of the confidence of the
American people. Maine, Ohio, Pennsylvania
and Indiana will be carried by the Republi
cans by increased majorities. The slight re
pulse in North Carolina will but serve to nerve
the party to increased effort, and bring it a
more glorious victory in the grand struggle o£
November. Close up tho ranks for tho onset,
BISMARCK.
It is announced unofficially that Prince Bis
marck, Prussia’s puissant premier, may pay a
visit to the United States in Autumn. This is
as it should be. Our people, old and young,
native and foreign, would be delighted to wel
come him. In October the Presidential cam
paign would be at its bight, so that he could
see bow we do things in America. He has
much to see, to feel, to learn over here. Balls
and buffalo hunts would not probably be in
order, for Bismarck is not a young or giddy
prince. He was not born royal; ho earned his
patent to nobility by dint of brains in the high
est sphere where brains avail. Bat to look
upon our people—upon his own people,
transplanted, and flourishing and free, would
teem with lessons to the premier. He would
learn, and could tell his royal master, that the
common intelligence of tho people can be
trusted at other times than in war. A tour
through the States of tho West, settled largely
by persons speaking German, would show him
Germany improved. He would see the citizen
with dog and gun off for a hunt, as he cannot
do in his own country. He would see the en
thusiasm with which the Prussian-American
supports his chosen candidate, when he knows
that his vote is as potential as any other single
ballot. Ho would see children taught in two
languages at school, at homo, everywhere,
growing upas free as the wind, and with a love
for the Republic which shelters them from the
rigors of thoir native land.
Thon, ton, the Germans would see hi“- A
reception which would shame all others would .
take place, and New York woul,d be overrun
with the enthusiasm, decorations and lager of
the occasion. Our natural Niagara will be
typified in tho roar and rush of welcome, our
mountains in the assured freedom of tbe emi
grant, our prairies in tho broad intelligence
given to all comers in our schools, and unc§-
erced beliefs. Forty thllliSfis of people will
prove that kingly right and kingly might are
not necessary to national prosperity. They
will show Bismarck why the subject desires to
escape into the citizen, why home surround
ings and associations are left, to secure to
themselves and children the boon of liberty of
property, person and conscionce. The old
prince will return wiser, more lenient, better.
By all moans, come over, Prince, and see us.
We will treat you well, show you around, post
you up, and, if you desire it, give you your first
papers of naturalization. Our folks want to
see a prince that was made, not born so. We
want to know if brains and rank can bo poa
sossed together. Come.
THE LAST MONTH "of SUMMER.
Jhj summer of 1872 will be long remem
bered as Ono bi extreme continuous An
exceptionally tardy, cold spring gave the feaS?
possible personal oomfort, and even loss en
couragement to crop prospects. June and
July, however, in steady, unbroken heat amply
avenged themselves, until sweating succeeded
shivering, and vegetation sprang forward as if
spurred to unusual advances. These extremes
of cold and heat have not proved beneficial to
tho producer. Moderate'change best suits the
farmer, the gardener and the crops. But tho
fierce heats are over ; June with its thermom
eter all on fire ; July with hardly a day below
eighty degrees ; these are gone, leaving the
human family weak, flabby and nervously
prostrated.
August, away from tho ocean coast,is the most
trying month of tho year, but near the Atlantic,
cool nights, sea breezes, and land breezes,
alternate the hot hours of sunshine, bringing
no small degree of relief. About tho fifteenth,
the crickets begin their evening songs, which
old-timo almanac mon used to consider the
beginning of winter, as the January thaw was
reckoned the commencement of summer. The
sun is already retreating, each day being one
minute shorter than its immediate predeces
sor. Long before August has run its allotted
term the discarded blanket will be sought out
for the bed, the now suffocating mosquito net
will be tightly drawn, and the present restless
hours of night will prove really the sweetest
and most comfortable of the twenty-four.
With the coming of Autumn the burning ef
fects of tho sun will have passed. Really de
lightful days will succeed eaoh, other and cool
nights prevail until the middle of October.
Then comes chill, stormy November, which
gives way to real winter. In the meantime,
we must sweat on, hoping for glad autumnal
days when tho horn of plenty capsizes upon us,
full of tho good things refused by the almost
torrid heat.
Now they abe Friends.—The
friends of Dewitt C. Littlejohn will press him
for the coalition candidate tor Governor. The
Democrats will press Francis Kernan. Greeley
and Littlejohn on one ticket would ba amusing.
We can all remember how Greeley used to
pitch into Littlejohn as tho leader of tho cor
ruptionists. Truly, politics makes strange
bedfellows.
A Life Member.—Somebody in
Newark, N. J., has given 130 to make Horace
Greeley a life member of tho American Mis
sionary Society. This is mixing up religion
and politics very nicely. Beyond peradventure
when exploring tha unknown retreats of tbe
head waters of Salt River, next fall, this ebu
fldenoo and compliment will boa great solace
to tha rec pient of this life membership.
The frogs are vocal in the swamps,
and their bind quarters plentiful in the market
at $1 50 per oound. Frenchmen, rejoice thereat.
BROOKLYN POLITICAL MATTERS.
This Fall tho county oi Kings will elect three
Members of Congress, instead of two, as here
tofore. Tne Second, or South Brooklyn Dis
trict, is heavily Democratic. Hon. Thomas
Kinsella (present member), of the Sixth Ward,
and Hon. John G. Schumaker (ox-M. C.) are
spoken of as candidates. The former can
probably have it if he makes the demand.
In the Third, or Central Brooklyn District,
Hon. Henry W. Slocum is the present member.
He is said not to be desirous of running again.
The district being strongly Republican may
account for his modesty. Slocum, it is sard,
will baa candidate for Clerk of the House
should his party carry it. In this district,
Hon. Wm. W. Goodrich, Liberal, is talked of.
It is a very up-hill race for any one. The lat
est talk is, that the Hon. Stewart L. Woodford
will be the Republican candidate. He would
make a strong run and be elected. Goodrich
is afraid of him.
The Fourth, or East Brooklyn and country
towns district, is believed to be a close one,
politically. Tho candidates talked of are Fred.
W. Kalbfleisch, son of tho ex-Mayor of that
name, who does not favor Fred’s ambition,
however, as it seems to stand in his own way.
Hon. Stephen J. Colahan, formerly a member
of the Constitutional Convention, at present
Clerk of the City Court of Brooklyn, is promi
nently named. The candidate of the Repub
licans will probably be tbe Hon. Samuel T.
Maddox, who Is very popular.
A Sheriff is to be chosen this Fall. Patrick
Campbell, present Chief of’Police, John Del
mar, present Justice of the Peace, First Dis
trict, and James McCaifley, Deputy Street
Commissioner, are named as candidates.
Some say that none of them will get this de
sirable plum, but that Robert Furey, outgoing
Street Commissioner (the office having been
abolished), will ba taken care of by receiving
the nomination.
A third Judge of the City Court of Brooklyn
is also to be chosen, vice Hon. George Thomp
son. 111-health prevents that gentleman from
being a candidate. As the position is for four
teen years, at i!0,000 per year, the candidates
are plentiful. Among those named are ex-
Judge George G. Reynolds, Liberal, and the
following Democrats: Henry D. Birdsall, ex-
Gov. Lowe, Charles Lowery, and Samuel D.
Morris.
Four Justices are to be chosen. First Dis
trict—John Delmar, present Incumbent, Pat
rick Keady, Fire Marshal, and Daniel Ferry,
Police Captain, all Democrats.
Second District—Daniel B. Thompson, law
reporter of the Eagle, Liberal.
Sixth District—James Cassidy, Police Cap
tain, Democrat, and Wm. B. Maben, Liberal.
These gentlemen ran against each other last
year, but tbe office was not then vacant, as
was supposed.
The Liberals claim tbe City Judge and one
Justice of tbe Peace.
A Police Justice, in place of Andrew Walsh,
is to be elected. Justice Walsh will probably
be re-nominated. No opposition candidate
has yet been publicly announced.
Nine Assemblymen, eleven Aldermen in tho
even and eleven Supervisors in the odd num
bered Wards, are also to be chosen.
JUDGE CHURCH DECLINES.
Beyond a doubt Sanford E. Church, Chief
Judge of tbe Court of Appeals, is one of the
shrewdest politicians in the State of New York.
He has been repeatedly before the voters of
this State, and always with unvarying success.
His last run for Judge gave him a majority of
90,000. Tho tide was setting toward his party.
He saw and realized the fact, allowed himself
to be nominated, and was elooted. Beyond all
manner of doubt he is the strongest Democrat
in the State before tho people. Appreciating
this fact, a few political Hotspurs have made
an attempt to place him in the field as a candi
date for Governor. They reason in this wise :
The present union of Liberals and Democrats
Is, as yet, not effected. Tbe skin has healed
over, but the inflammation of an old, deep, ma
lignant wound, remains below. At any mo
ment it is liable to show afresh. To carry
Greeley and Brown through this State the
most popular candidates are necessary. Judge
Church lias public confidence, ho is popular in
the western part of the State. He is the man
to load us.
But what says the Judge ? Tilden & Co.
tried to kill off Judge Church in 1868. They
would have nominated him for President know
ing that no man could beat Gen. Grant. Tbo
stubborn, wily, blunt old man, said “No.” A
more flexible ten pin was set up and fell grace
fully enough when tbe ball cLino rolling on.
In this scheme for the Governorship the same
thing is being tried. Again the Judge says
“No;” and unlike Seymour, his “No’’never
means “Yes.” Ha sees that the tide is against
him; that he is expected to drag Greeley
through, and very properly he declines toffn
it. His simple refusal to go before the people
at this critical time has in it more of signifi
cance than columns of gush about the great
revolution in public sentiment elsewhere. It is
not here, but in Vermont, Kansas, Michigan,
everywhere but where you happen to be.
Editorial
A BeFOuJJ Nebbed.— A lady writes
to the Tribune in complaint 6f her
by hotel landlords in this city. She arrived
here 6ii ttiu filgllt of tho 31st of July. She
made application for a room at the Everett
House and tho Clarendon and Glenham Hotels.
She was refused. She eventually secured a
room for tho night at the St. Germain Hotel.
She feels naturally indignant, and asks, "Now,
I wish to know if a respectable woman, who
conducts herself with propriety, has not a per
fect right to the hospitality of a hotel, and by
what standard of judgment ladies are refused
rooms ?” Of course, hotel keepers must exer
cise great care, or their houses would be over
run by improper women; still, they should
use some sense in declining to receive women
at their hotels. Woman are often compelled
to travel alone, and it is certainly very unjust
treatment for them to be denied admission to
respectable hotels. The lady who makes
the oomplaint (Mrs. V. E. Dean, of
has done service to her sisters in bringing
this matter to the attention of the public, and
we hope that the hotel proprietors will al
once institute a reform In a ru.e which they
carry to too great lengths.
Musical Suggestion.—Tha French
band gave a couple of entertainments in the
Brooklyn Academy yesterday afternoon and
evening. Tbe price for tbe matinee was fifty
cents, in the evening two dollars. Tho con
clusion is, therefore, inevitable that the French
men can month their harmony four times bet
ter at night than in the day time. If, then,
they can play reasonably well in daylight, to
what mellifluous bights of melody must they
not attain in the evening 1 They should im
mediately quit conoertizing and devote them
selves to the business of serenading. By the
way, why cannot the band remain hero during
the Autumnal months? Every politician, ev
ery nominee, would like to be serenaded, and
would pay for the pleasure. Who knows but
the brazen sweetness of the Frenchmen’s
horns might soften the asperities of the cam
paign. , ■ ,
Won’t They Go?—Deseret is the
name of a proposed new State. A constitution
has already been drafted, and among its pro
visions is one granting tho right of suffrage
and office-holding to women, as well as men.
Couldn’t Victoria Woodhull, George Franois
Train, Theodore Tilton, Susan B. Anthony,
and the rest of the old women of this neigh
borhood, who cackle so much about the rights
of which they have been robbed, be induced to
make Deseret their place of abode? If they
should bo killed by the Indians, the people of
this country would willingly stand tho expense
of their burial.
The World says that Mr. Greeley
is now at work on a voluminous book which
will aoon be published. We suggest as an ap
propriate title that it be called “ The Mistakes
of a Lifetime.•
The following “Personal” appeared
in Saturday’s Herald :
Long island, Thursday aftkb
noon.—lf the lady in green dress bowing to gen
tleman several times wishes to make his acquaintance
she will please address 11., box 199 Herald office.
We bops the lady who wore the green dress
which was bowing to a gentleman, will at once
make the acquaintance of H. Ho is an inte
resting and intelligent youth, as his advertise
ment shows. If the lady will only send us H’s
portrait when she comes to know him, we will
publish it with a biography. We don’t doubt
but that our readers will find the likeness as
fascinating as that of Antoine Probst, and the
biography as interesting as that of Jack Rey
nolds.
Caved In.—We have often called
the attention of the city authorities to the
wretched condition of many of our wharves.
An accident which occurred on Thursday illus
trates the kind of rotten concerns which New
York miscalls wharves. The bark Maggie L.
Carvill was discharging scrap iron on pier No.
96, E. B. When about 150 tons had been dis
charged, the wharf caved in, landing the iron
on the bottom of the river. And now the city
will have to pay the expenses of raising the
iron, besides having to build a new wharf. Let
us hope that the new wharf when erected will
be sufficiently strong to bear the weight of a
moderately sized man.
Kilpatrick's Libel Suit.—Gen. Kil
patrick has sued Mr. Jennings, the editor of
the New York Times, for libel, for stating that
the general took an abandoned woman to Chili
with him when he went out there as Minister.
The general simply states that ho took bis
mother-in-law with him. The most unhappy
part of the affair is that the name of a lady
must be necessarily dragged to public view,
and all because her health was bad, to recruit
which, she accompanied her son-in-law abroad.
Diamonds by the Peck.—The Pa
cific coast is undergoing another craze. This
time it is diamonds, and one weighing 112
carats is reported as having been discovered.
It is stated that about a peck of smaller ones
have been found. These reports sot all the old
miners wild. When California undertakes to do
anything she does it with a rush—even when
it’s a humbug.
Evil Communications.—Lord Gran
ville and the eon of Mr. Livingstone believe in
Stanley. We thought it impossible that Liv
ingstone could have written the letters pub
lished over bis name, and it caused us to
doubt the whole of Stanley’s story. If Living
stone did write the letters, then it is evident
that constant communication with savages is
affecting his brain.
Modest as Usual.—Thiers is stated
to have said that King William of Prussia was
an abler man than Frederick the Great; that
Bismarck was greater than Cardinal Richelieu,
and that Field-Marshal Moltke was the great
est strategist that over lived. And this praise
Is all owing to tljji fact that the Germans
whipped the French. The French always were
a modest race.
On the War-Path,—The Cheyennd
Indians are on the war-path again. A few
days ago they got their rations of beef at Fort
Sully, and then made a raid on the agency.
They should be sent a few more presents—for
instance, guns in the hands of United States
soldiers.
Fortunate Escape.—Gladstone, the
Premier of Great Britain, witnessed some ex
periments with gun cotton last week. By
some mistake an explosion occurred which
came near ending his usefulness. He was un
injured, however, although 100 panes of glass
were shivered to the joy of the “glass-put-in”
fraternity.
Amenities of the Press.—The col
umns of the Tribune show that Mr. Greely is
not the only man who can write the word
“ liar.” In one article last week the Tribune
editorially called three men liars and one man
an ass. This is pointed, if not convincing jour
nalism,
The fiery “area," as Mr. Washing
ton Probabilities calls it, has visited St. Louis.
Recently it. was 99° in the shade, and sun

Old bachelors are not always slan
derers of the fair sex, but the majority of them
incline that wav. Thu loaning is owing, in
most cases, to disappointment in youth. Wo
once know an old bachelor who was eternally
sneering at women. He had all the cnolia
jokes at his tongue’s end. He said they were
called “dear” because (Key Were so costly—
“ angels” because Ihefr husbands wanted them
translg(ejJ tq MJQther doves” because
tney were so fleet of tongue—“ idols” because
they hated work, etc. We at length discov
ered the cause of his dislike for man’s greatest
boon. He had loved a maiden fair, but she
hadn’t reciprocated. When he offered her the
position of chief washer and ironer to his ma
jesty? she LaS IeC)l?»2. honor. He asked
her why, and she answered that fib ffas« J. I)er
style at all; that she had another fellow ; and
that he could go hang himself for all she cared.
Since that time he has never loved another. A
short time ago he went West, and we guess
he’s writing for the papers there, as one of
them contains the following vile slander on the
whole sex:’"‘lf you hand a lady a newspaper
with a scrap cut out of it, not a line of it will be
read, but every bit of interest the paper pos
sesses is centered in finding out what the miss
ing scrap contained.” '
In the clerk’s office at Vincennes,
Indiana, is fifed a petition for a divorce, on the
ground that the petitioner’s wife “ has run
away and gone to Pike county.” It concludes
thus: “He further says that ho has written
many affectionate letters to her, in which ho
has endeavored to soften her heart toward him.
At one time he wrote her a letter, of which he
here appends a copy:
My dearest Harriet, why have you left mo,
. Sighing, weeping, all alone ?
Wi'h none to talk to or caress ma,
My wretched fate I much bemoan.
My eyes are swollen big with weeping,
My nose is red and swollen too,
I have, in all respects, the poorest keeping
Of any man wlitf tries his duty for to do.
And your petitioner says that, in response to
all his offers and entreaties, she has refused
with scorn and contempt to return to his home.
Wherefore he prays your Honor will hear his
prayer herein, and forever divorce him from
the said Harriet.” The woman who could be
so unappreciative as to desert such a noble
character as this—who could torture a heart
which is softer than his head—is unfit to live
in a country over which Victoria Woodhull ex
pects to rule. She should at once be sent to
the Cannibal Islands. She would be a tough
morsel on a toasting fork.
We have always regarded the indi
vidual who had boarded at a hotel for six
months without paying a cent as the most
“cheeky” of men. When the landlord asked
him for pay, saying: “I can’t afford to keep a
hotel if my boarders don’t pay,” he replied :
“ Well, old fellow, if you can't afford it, you
should sell out to a richer man." But a Paris
correspondent has discovered a man whose
“cheek” is sublime in its immensity. This is
the story which he tells: A gentleman walking
with his little boy on the banks of the river, the
child slipped over the bank into the water, and
would certainly have been drowned but for the
courage of a man who was fishing, who jumped
in and saved the boy. The father thanked him
cordially, but asked him if he would add to the
obligation, as ho was already wet through, by
swimming out for bis son’s cap.
The Danbury (Conn.) Newti is re
sponsible for this wild and terrifying tale of
mad dogs : “There were three mad dogs on
Main street Saturday night. They weren’t
mad until they met each other. A few words
were exchanged and ths combat commenced
at onoe. They snapped around pretty froe.y
for a moment, and stirred up a cloud of dust
that completely obscured what little sight rage
left them. Then they went into it lively. They
didn’t touch each other, because they didn’t
know where each other was, but they danced
around, first on their forward legs and then on
their hind legs, and howled, and swore, and
bit great round chunks out of the atmosphere,
and carried on dreadfully for five minutes.
After that they withdrew on one side to a cool
spot where they could sit down and think.
A woman in Peoria put an indelible
stain upon her husband’s name and fame. He
is a somewhat festive genius, given to draining
the flowing bowl, and singing “We Won’t Go
Home tiil Morning." The wife warned a sa
loon keeper, where he spent his time, to sell
him no more liquor. This was the stain, and
it must be washed away in blood. So the hus
band went home and hacked bis wife to pieces
with a hatchet. And tjiey have got him in
prison. Our liberties are indeed fast disap
pearing when the vile myrmidons of the law
can imprison a man for defending his sacred
honor. But an intelligent jury of his fellow
countrymen will do him justice, and clear him
on the pfea of “ temporary insanity.”
Fob rapidity of action commend
us to the females of the West. A Miss Robin
son, of Dubuque, was married on Tuesday,
unmarried on Wednesday, and on Thursday
ran off with another man. This was piling on
the action eonsiderably more than is done in a
sensation play. But she was surpassed by a
Mies Nickens, of Indianapolis. This lady shot
at a man who insulted her in the street, had a
fight with her father and blackened both the
old man’s eyes, took her fellow to church-and
married him, had an heir born to her, and all
in twenty-four hours. If a woman can be
found to beat her trot her out and we’ll hand
her name down to posterity.
Sewing-machine agents are getting
to be as great pests as the life insurance
agents and lightning-rod men. We read of a
farmer on the road between Charlton and
Wooster, Mass., having been terribly annoyed
by drummers, put up a sign, “No sewing
machines wanted here. Got one.” It was no
use ; the next drummer wanted to see the ma
chine, “ and perhaps he'd hitch up a trade.”
So the farmer put up, “Got the small-pox
here.” That worked well for a while, but then
camo along a drummer frightfully pitted with
the small-pox, who smilingly said: “ Seeln’
you’ve got it bad around hero, they’ve put me
on this route.”
It is very hard in this rough world
for a man to be sensitive. He is always in
trouble. There is one of this sort in Connec
ticut. Ho is an applicant for divorce. His
ground for the action is that his wife spoke
harshly to him, and threw pillows at him. The
result of this unkindness was dyspepsia. He
now prays to be relieved of his wife that he
may be cured of the dyspepsia. Ahl those
tender-hearted, sensitive men have sore afflic
tions in this world. They should die early, or,
like blind puppies, be drowned. It would save
them much grief, and other people the annoy
ance of listening to their woes.
A very finely dressed lady, on
whose fece powder and wrinkles were desper
ately struggling for the mastery, got on the
tram at Norwalk, lately. The car being
crowded, she was obliged to stand up. Seeiiig
her, a young woman in an adjoining seat rose
and offered the place. “ But you will have to
stand,” said the first lady, edging toward the
seat. “ Oh, that’s nothing,” replied the other,
“I am young,” In the next instant the first
lady was at the other end of the oar, and didn’t
intimate to anybody to bring the seat along.
A Vermont farmer was startled
while hoeing corn recently, by seeing a rhinoc
eros coming toward him plowing a furrow like
a steam plow with his born. The farmer, who
relies on the Tribune for his agricultural
knowledge, at first took it for a potato bug of
the new style, but the arrival of a party of
showmen in search of the insect explained
things.
The St. Louis Globe says : “Since it
was announced that land was selling in Florida
for eighteen cents an acre, several New York
editors have purchased acre homesteads
there.” We don’t believe the story. No New
York editor would be so reckless in the expen
diture of money while lager sells for five cents
a glass, with a hunk of black bread thrown in.
Evansville, (Ind.) young ladies
when they tire of the attentions of a beau
gently insinuate a bunch o? fire-crackers be
neath his coat skirts, and apply a lucifor. A
young man they recently treated thus, leaped
a ten foot fence into the arms of a policeman,
and pleaded guilty to being drunk and disor
derly rather than tell what ailed him.
An industrious and gentlemanly
Appearing bug, with a “rip saw” in his mouth,
is delighting the Ohio farmers by his expert
ness in swallowing up the Colorado potato bug.
He does it for fun only, auff it takes just two
seconds to cut a potato bug into kindling wood
after ho gets his mandibles fastened on the
latter.
A Burlin<stG.'J (Iowa) physician

This is decidedly bitter : “

An Indianapolis youth surveys the

DRAMATIC.
Wallack’s Theatre.— The famous archer,
Robin Hood, impersonated by Miss Lydia Thompson
in the burlesque of that name, continues to attract
and please amusement-seekers at Wallack’s. The
house is nightly crowded, and there seems no neces
sity for changing the bill, although the management
announce their intention of doing so very soon. Miss
Thompson is truly arch and amusing as Robin; Miss
Beckett comical in the extreme as Maid Marian; and
Miss Weathersby gracefully pleasing as Alice; and
the other members of the company exhibit marked
improvement in their respective parts. The sbbgg
and choruses are very nicely rendered and invariably
Ohcored, and the dancing, particularly of Mr. Edouin
and Miss Leslie, much above the average. The cos
tumes are pretty, and the scenery quite worthy of
the piece. “Blue Beard,” which was so favorably
received last season, will shortly b 9 revived, and
Burnand’s burlesque of b Ixion,’ i is announced as in
preparation. In obedience to general request, there
will be a “Bobin Hood” matinee on Saturday next,
at 1:30 P. M.
Bowery Theatre.—Messrs. Oofty Gcoft and
G. W. Thompson prolonged their very successful en
gagement through last week, and might have contin
ued for many more but for the fact that Manager
Freligh’s other engagements stood in the way. The
first of these engagements will be for the production,
to-morrow evening, of another new and original
drama, .this time entitled “From Abroad.” and la*
troducing four artists of considerable note. In this
piece Mr. Washington Norton, well-known as an ac
complished negro comedian, will make his first ap
pearance on the regular stage; and as he has a’readi_
given prooaory make a
palpablohit. Mr. Morton has just concluded: a tour
of the English-speaking world, and where.xqr.ho has l
been, has succeeded in securing the the pub*
lie. While in London, a dispute having arisen as to
the best dancer then in that country, Mr. Norton
danced with and defeated the celebrated J-Qp Brown
then acknowledged to be the best jig dancer in the
country. By this victory he gained one hundred
pounds and the jig dancing championship, of Eng
land. Another new-comer will bo Mr. Harry Gwyn
ette, a comedian of good reputation. Tho sisters
Julia and Fanny Bland, comediennes, will also appear
in the new p'ay; and as those young ladies are grand
daughters of the celebrated Mrs. Glover, and may be
expected to inherit a fair share of her genius, the
cast should be one of the most complete ever seen
here. The sparkling little comedy of “ A’Kiss in the
Dark,” will precede “From Abroad” every evening.
The Bowery management have in rehearsal the
atest London sensation, in the form of a drama en
titled “The Polish Jew; or, The Bells.”
Olympic Theatre.—On Monday evening last,
Miss Chariotte Thompson made her first appearance
in New York for several years, the piece chosen loj
the occasion being an adaptation of the younger Du
mas’ drama, “The Princess Georges,” called in its
new form, “ One Wife.” It is a play wholly unsqiU
ed to an American audience, and should never have
been presented here. The plot is broadly indecent,
the characters principally libertines and courtezan?,

The anguish of mind occasioned by thb 5 all
of her husband’s faithlessness—anguish' .
the greater by her desire to win back and stiii fbtaiu
his love—was beautifully depicted; and not less'art-?
istic was her representation of the wronged wife's
feelings, when her husband owns his love for an
other woman and defies her. Nor have we for a
very considerable time witnessed anything on the
stage so natural or touching as her acting in the
scene where her husband first acknowledges his
crime and promises reparation. Miss Lizzie Price
gave an artistic impersonation of the gay woman of
the world, Mrs. Hoffman; in fact, the only fault to
be found with her was her naturalness. It is always
painful to see a lady of Miss Price’s abilities placed
in such a disagreeable position. Miss Nina Varian,
a lady as yet very young in the profession, played
Rosy, Mrs. Van Dyke’s maid, vary prettily. Miss
Varian, with a little more experience, promises to be
a very accomplished actress. Madame Ponisi played
Mrs. Vanzandt in her usual finished manner, and
Miss Nellie Jones was a pleasing representative of
Mrs. De Peyster. Tho only gentlemen in the cast of
whom we can write in favorable terms are Messrs.
A. D. Bradley and Vining Bowers. The former
played De Winter, the family lawyer, with very
great effect, and the latter was a moderately good
representative of the French valet, Victor. Mr. L. B»
Shewel! was entirely out of place as Mr. Van Dyke,
and none of the others had any opportunity for dis
play. The piece was produced in a very chaste and
costly manner, the scenery being very beautiful and
the costumes in excellent taste. Since the produc
tion of “One Wife,” the attendance has been very
good. This may be attributed to Miss Thompson's
splendid acting, which is really worth seeing, and
not to the prurient nature of the play. In order to
admit of an impartial judgment of both play and
actress, the management of the Olympic Theatre
have resolved to retain it on the boards for anothar
week.
