Sunday Edition. August 4.
ffogement in anew play, entitled “A Life's Dream.**
Watipees on Wednesday and Saturday.
tfooD’fl Muskum.—Mr. Frank Chanfrau made
Ms first appearance on Monday evening, in the play
Of ’‘Kit, the Arkansas Traveler,” and during the
week has played to astonishingly good business. His
impersonation of Kit is as vigorous and natural as
over, and may be ranked among the best efforts of
our best native actors. He was ably supported by
Mr. J. F. Wheelock, Mr. T. W. Keene, Mr, A. H.
Bheldon, Mr. L. J. Mestayer, Mr. J. S. Wallace, Mr.
R. J. Lewis, Mr. Harry Stewart, Mr. T. L. Connor,
Mr. 0. G. Charles, Mr. J. Debonay, Mr. C. Sturges,
and Miss Jennie CarrolL The afternoon perform
ances consisted of the farce of “ Easy Shaving” and
the melodrama of “Red Jack,” both of which were
extremely well played by the resident company.
This week “Kit” will be again presented for the
evening entertainments, and in the afternoon the
comedy of “Broken Toys,” and the farce, “Larkin’s
Love Letters,” will make up the bill. A new play,
in which Mr. Chanfrau will appear, will be presented
during his present engagement.
Grand Opera-House.—Thia magnificent
theatre has now, for the first time since its erection,
fell into the hands of a gentleman in every way capa
ble of properly managing it, and promises during
the forthcoming season to be the most brilliantly
attractive place of amusement in America. Mr.
Augustin Daly, who has, by his admirable manage
ment of the Fifth Avenue Theatre, forced from the
public an acknowledgement of his skill, purposes
gaining new laurels by his catering at the Grand
Opera-House, of which establishment he is now also
manager. His first season will be Inaugurated on
Tuesday, August 20th, and an important era in the
history of New York amusements will, we fell as
sured, be on that occasion instituted. The enter
tainment submitted on that evening will differ
greatly from anything hitherto seen here, and the
house itself will present an appearance excelled by
no theatre, American or European. Not content
with the gorgeous decorations and appointments
which were already a feature of the establishment,
Mr, Daly has effected many costly and important
improvements. The magnificent lobby has been
converted into a spacious picture and art saloon,
where the works of the most celebrated European
and American artists will be on constant exhibition.
Already works of Biers tadt, Dubufe, Laurent Thomp
son, Biron, and other equally famous artists, have
been secured. The auditorium has been altered
and re-decorated; every lobby and passage-way has
been newly and expensively decorated with Royal
Wilton Velvet, made to order for the Grand Opera-
House; the boxes have been newly upholstered and
carpeted; the theatre repainted and gilded, and the
old opera boxes on the balcony circle have been
replaced by one hundred and seventy parlor arm
chairs, forming at once the most comfortable and
luxuriant seat yet introduced into a place of amuse
ment. A ladies’ toilet room has been elegantly fitted
up off the Grand Vestibule, and a ladies’ maid will
be always in attendance.
The opening play, Ss heretofore announced, will
foe a new fairy opera bouffe spectacle, entitled “Le
Roi Carrotte” (King Carrot), produced last Winter in
Paris, and the joint work of Offenbach and Sardou.
All the costumes and properties (nearly two thou
sand in number, and of very rich and unique de
sign) have been manufactured in Paris expressly for
the Grand Opera House, and have just arrived. The
scenery is painted from models and measurements
furnished by the Parisian artists, and the musio is
to be given with additions and alterations made ex
pressly for this country by Offenbach himself. In
Addition to this, Sardou has composed a special
apotheosis for the termination of the spectacle,
which will be presented for the first time on any
Stage in New York, at his particular request. The
piece will, of course, be played in English, the
adaptation being by Mr. Daly himself. Syi of the
first scenic artists of the country have been at work
Since April last on the tableaux, viz.: Geo. Heister,
Minard Lewis, Louis Duflocq, L. W. Heavy, Geo. W.
Dayton, and Signor G. G. Garibaldi. The latter has
■composed a drapery for the proscenium, which is
considered the masterpiece of his whole career.
Forty carpenters, iron workers, and other artizans,
have been employed since the 20th of April in pre
paring for this grand spectacle, and in order to give
it every proper effect, a vast number of alterations
and improvements have been made, the machinery
both below and above the stage being of the most
remarkable character and gigantic proportions. By
this means some very wonderful and almost in
stantaneous transformations can be effeoted. The
machinery has been constructed under the superin
tendence of Mr. Thomas Kelly and Mr. Wm. Smith,
and the mechanical department will bo under their
direction.
•amojiny with which Mr. Daly onans his season
will include many of the choice artists of the Eng
lish and American stage. Among them maybe men
tioned Mrs. John Wood, the most accomplished bur
lesque actress living; Miss Rose Hersee, the distin
guished operatic vocalist; Miss Mary Stuart, Miss
Jean Burnside, Miss Norwood, and Miss Volner, of
Fifth Avenue Theatre; Mrs. and Miss Jennie Yea
mans, of the Olympic; Miss Helen Strange, Miss
Ella Dietz, and an accomplished debutante, Miss
Bella Golden. The gentlemen will bo Mr. John
Brougham, Mr, Robert Craig, Stuart Robson, G. F.
Ketchum, Julian Cross, J, W. Edwin
Chapman, Clive Hersee, Marlin Golden, James <A.
Meade, and others. In addition to this list of dra
matic and musical notables, Mr. Daly has secured
the dashing Majilton Family, the Lauri troupe, and
a chorus of forty voices, selected from the Italian, '
French, and English opera companies. No less than
Xwo hundred and sixty persons will be engaged in
■the representation of “Le Roi Carotte.” The or
chestra will be under the direction of Mr. Robert
jfitoepel, and the business management of th 9 house
Las been placed in the competent hands of the ac
complished Mr. D. 0. C. Townley. In conclusion,
Mr. Daly has a great treat in store for those who
Lave come io look upon Sunday concerts as a neces
sary and innocent pleasure. He has secured for
these entertainments Mr. Maretzok’s Italian Opera
•Company, and all the artists who give opera at the
Academy of Music this Fall will assist in the Sunday
Evening concerts at the Grand dpefra House.
As at the Fitth Avenue Theatre, every department
of the Grand Opera House, and the performances to
be given there, will be under Mr. Daly’s personal
.•supervision, and it is his determination that these
•theatres shall be maintained as places of amusement
where the most refined people may enjoy the best
.dramatic and operatic performances without any
drawback whatever.
Union Square Theatre.—Another visit to
this theatre during the past week convinced us that
the represent*of Brough’s “Kind ft a
as given by the company, is one gt i*' 8 be3t 00me j y
performances the New York public have had an op
portunity of enjoying for a very lengthy period. Mr.
J. P. Goldsworthy is a light comedy
impersonaton. worthy to rank with many of the most
admired effortseef Charles Mathews or Mr. Bothern-
Devoid of all restraint, easy and gentlemanly in
manner, and admirably versed in the business of
the piece, he realizes fully one of poor William
Brough’s best and latest creations. We trust soon
to see Mr. Burnett attached permanently to one of
our city theatres. If his other impersonations equal
that under notice, he is bound to become a favorite.
V’e can also bestow unqualified praise qq Messrs.
Welch Edwards and John Howson for excellently
•conceived comedy pictures. The Yokes Family have
alternated ‘ The Belles of the kitchen” with “The
Wrong Man in the Bight Place,- and their every ap
tiearaJoe haJ boen hailed with unfeigned pleasure.
P It Is matter of sincere regret that this talented family
cannot remain longer with us during their present
stay in America than one week. Their present en
gagement has been the most successful ever played
In New York, as is testified by the fact that even with
the thermometer ranging above ninety, the theatre
was nightly crowded to its utmost capacity, and- the
I various members of the family were as cordial y re
ceived at each representation as if It were a first
appearance. The best of friends, however, must ul
timately part, and previous engagements necessitate
an returulD S to England in a very short time.
"Ibej will, tu.. ,fOre ' make their iast B PP o *«nne for
‘the present on SalurdAy aftfir which they pay a
■brief visit to Philadelphia, and tliAft tetur. Dfury I
-Lana Theatre, London. We are sure that a return
’visit would prove both pleasant aud profitable to
thorn, and bo hailed with delight by all amusement
- seekers in this country, and trust that that return
'will be made at the earliest possible date.
We must now call attention to an event of more
ordinary importance, announced tor to-morrow
‘evening, viz: the first appearance of Miss Rosma
Yokes, in the character of Nan, in Buckstone’s farce
*of “Good For Nothing.” This character, made
famous by the celebrated Mrs. Fitzwiliiam, seems
admirably suited to the clever little Miss Yokes, and
will form an excellent means of testing her powers
outside of burlesque or broad farce. The character
is not altogether farcical in its nature, but Miss
Yokes exhibits such a thorough keenness of percep
tion and knowledge of stage business, that a great
triumph is anticipated. In obedience to general
request, “Good For Nothing” will be followed each
evening by “The Wrong Man in the Right Place,”
•One of the most amusing burlesques ever presented.
Union Square Theatre will remain closed from
August 18th to September 16th, for alterations and
Ik repairs, after which it Will be opened as one of the
Bleeding comedy theatres of America. Matinees on
r Wednesday end Saturday.
Theatre Comique.— This extremely popular
place of amusement will be again thrown open to tho
public in a few nights, when Manager Hart will re
turn from Chicago, where he has mads an immense
hit with his great sensational spectacle, bringing
With him ono of the largest and best varieties com-
panies ever assembled m one establishment. Mr.
John R. Topham was in town during ths last few
days making arrangements for the opening, and as
sures us that during the next season the Comique
will be unprecedentedly attractive. He will resume
his old position as treasurer and business manager
of the establishment, which is sufficient guarantee
of the excellent manner In which these departments
will be attended to. Mr. Hart has many novelties in
preparation, and no one is better versed in the art
of submitting them than he is.
Booth’s Theatre.—From announcement in
another column it will be perceived that this beauti
ful house will be re-opened on the evening of to
morrow fortnight, August 19th. The first produc
tion of the season will be the thrilling play which
has recently been so successful in London, England,
entitled, “The Bells,” in which the accomplished
actor, Mr. James W. Wallack, will make his reap
pearance. We have good reasons for believing that
the play will prove immensely popular here, as it is
said to boa work of more than average merit, and as
for the actor, Mr. Wallack, who will play the princi
pal character, Mathias, his many striking impersona
tions in tho past indicate a treat such as cannot fail
to prove attractive. Like all productions at Booth’s
Theatre, tho play will be superbly mounted, and we .
understand that the company will be much larger .
and better than hitherto soon there. Further par- •
iiculars in our next. '
SCRAPS MUSICAL AND DRAMATIC.
This deservedly eminent pianiste, Anna
Mehlig, is creating quite as great a sensation in Cali- 1
fornia as she did in the Atlantic States. After concert- (
izing with marked success in San Francisco, she de
parted on a trip to the Yosemite Valley and‘‘the big s
trees,” ono of which was forthwith named after her. .
and a small marble tablet inscribed “Anna Mehlig” J
placed upon it. It was a graceful compliment to christen
one of these tall and graceful denizens of the primeval
forest after the equally tall, graceful, and artistically
riohly endowed pianist e. On the sth of this month Misa ■
Mehlig plays at the Grand Concert of “the San Fran- ‘
cisco Society,” the most refined musioal association of ]
that city, shy then proceeds on a little tour to Sacra- 1
mento. Marysville. San Jose, Stockton, eto., after which j
she v ill give six concerts d’adieu in San Francisco. On ■
her way back to New York. Miss Mehlig will probably
stop at Salt Lake City, Brigham Young and his many ]
wives, with tho rest of the apostles, having expressed .
an earnest desire to hear this great artist. We trust,
however, brother Brigham will not succeed in inducing i
the gentle Anna to make a longer sojourn than profes
sional exigency demands, as the musical world of New
York cannot afford for her to be “sealed” to any of
these denizens of the desert. Miss Mehlig is engaged
this Fall and Winter by both the New York and Brook- <
Jyn Philharmonic Societies. j
The London Sunday Times, noticing the ap
pearanoe of Miss Bateman and her sister, Miss Virginia
Francis, in W. G. Will’s new play, “Medea in Corinth,” (
says: Miss Bateman’s impersonation of Medea is un
doubtedly a masterpiece of forcible acting and decla
mation. Far finer and more tragic is it than her Leah,
and there are passages In it which are absolutely terrific.
Trie conception of the barbarian wife, brought up in <
worship of the gods, who still demanded human sacri
fice, and finding every murderous and despairing in- ’
stinct reviving in her at the unprecedented falsehood of j
him for whom she had sacrificed so much, was wonder
ful. If the element of beauty could only have been 1
added the triumph would have been complete. Miss (
Francis acted with much tenderness as Gtaucea, and some
of her attitudes were eminently poetical
Ths Llngards, Wm. Horace, Misa Alice Dun
ning, and their full company, will commence an en- ]
gagement of three weeks at the Olympic Theatre on
the 12th inst., producing a new drama entitled “ A J
Life’s Dream,” which will doubtless be presented with <
that regard to scenery and appointments characteristic
of this theatre. Mr. Llngara (we are informed) has f
added a number of new portrait sketches to his already i
large repertoire, and they will be given in addition to th®
dramatic performance. The Olymyio is in the full tide j
of success under the new management, and their ar
rangements for the season insure a continuance. We 1
were positive thereof with Sam Colville at the helm of (
management.
The distinguished burlesque prima donna
and vocalist, Mr. Rollin Howard, accompanied by Mr.
Ned Raymond, have secured passages on the Egypt
(which sails August 10th), for a tour of Europe. Mr.
Howard is an excellent and careful comedian, and
should he make an appearance in England we are sure
our English cousins will give him a warm welcome.
Great success in Europe, and increased popularity on
his return to his native land, can scarcely fail to await
him. •
At the Griswold Opera House, Troy, Mr. J. i
Partelle will be old man; Mr. E. A. Gilbert, heavy; Mr.
Tnotnas Davey, stage-manager; Mr. Van Ette, leader (
of orchestra; Miss Viola Plunkett, chambermaid; Miss .
Mina Croliqs, walking lady; and Miss Lizzie Hardy, first
old woman, text season.
Mr. Josh Hart’s great spectacle, "Chicago," |
has caused an immense sensation in the oity of that
name. The artistic correctness of the scenery, and
splendid manner in which it has been produced have
obtained for the piece an unprecedented suocess.
Mr. Harold Forsberg, an actor well known
in this city, and much admired when connected with
Booth’s and the Olympic Theatres, will fill the lead
ing position at Trimble’s Opera House, Albany, N. ¥.,
during the forthcoming season.
It is said that Mr. Ben Macauley is likely to
be the next manager of the Fifth Avenue Theatre; but
why it should be said so we ate at a loss to understand,
as Mr. Augustin Daly has been singularly successful in
his management of that house.
Miss Eliza Long, the promising young sou?
brette whoulayed during the past season at the National
Theatre, Washington, D. 0., has been engaged for the
season of 1872-3 at McVicker’s Theatre, Chicago.

THE STORY OF A BOOTS WIDOW.
How She Entrapped, a California
Miner.
And then Left Him in Company
with His Money and Jewelry.
Annie Bogan was fat, fair, and forty. The eharms
of her person were of the rpbxut, unctuous order,
and the mooAs of her temper ranged trom the geh
tlenoss of the dove to the fierceness of the mad bull.
Not very long ago she rejoiced in the conjugal asso
ciation of a noted Eighth Ward politician, who now
keeps a liquor store in Hudson street, but somehow
they parted company, and Annie betook herself to
tho golden slopes of the Pacific. Thrown on her
own resources for a living, and being well versed in
culinary science, she sought and obtained
EMPLOYMENT AS A COOK,
or something of that sort, at a town called Oakland,
seven miles from San Francisco. It was here she
mot Walter Clark, a wealthy miner, and smote him
with her buxom charms. What a curious contrarl
etv of tastes is sometimes witnessed in the married
relationship I—Lilliputian, mated to Amazons, and
May wedded to December. Clark was not more
than twenty; Annie's age wc have already given.
But no matter; notwithstanding tLia disparity, Wal
j ter, who possessed a very susceptible soul, fell
?y?? ® EAD AND EARS IN LOVE
with Annie. After a due Term 6f Cox£teMp they
took up house together, and were thenceforlL inowi
to the world where they dwelt aa Mr, and Mra.Clark.
Things went on smoothly, and Clark was piling up
gold, the fruit of hia tireless industry in the mines,
when one day a letter came, apprising him of his fa
ther’s demise in Woodstock, Canada, and the conse
quent inheritance by him oi a portion of his estate.
A week after he had made up his mind to leave Oak*
laud, and in the early part of ’7l Annie and he were
snugiy settled among friends in the romantic town
of Woodstock aforesaid. Now, Mrs. Clark had hith
erto been
SAILING UNDER FALSE COLORS
with her pseudo husband. When he wooed her in
O .kland she told him she was a widow, and that her *
whilom lord bad been killed in the late war. Thia
was a pure fabrication on her part, but, as to that,
Clerk was blissfully ignorant. He was not long to be !
so, however. One fine morning a few months ago, i
Annie took French leave of Woodstock, taking with ’
her nine hundred dollars in gold, and all Walter’s !
jewelry. She was abouc ten hours gone when he 1
missed her and went in pursuit, overtaking her near 1
Niagara. Words of reproach followed, but finally a |
reconciliation was effected, and they agreed to come 1
to this city, whither Annie said she had forwarded 1
the gold and other property. On arriving here they '
put up at a boarding-house in Varick street. On the
even.ng of the fourth day afterward sba left the
ixou.e, saying she’d be back oar-iy, f
She never returned, and the anxious Walter, after o
some time, traced her to her mother’s house in Wil- *
liamsburgh. Here a
A STORMY SCENE J
occurred, which was ended by Annie ordering Clark vs
out of the house, and disclosing to his astounded
ear the intelligence that she was not his wife at all, o;
but the wife of another, who was a “ big politician” r<
in this city, and who would '• fix him” if he didn’t
quit the city immediately. Feeling utterly bank
rupt, and scarcely knowing what to do, the unfortu- *
nate dark sought the advice of Counselor Ned Price, a]
who advised him to have her arrested. The deceit- h
ful Annie was, accordingly, a few days ago taken be
tore Justice Cox at the Jefferson Market Police Court, 0(
and after a lengthy examination, was held in default A.
of $1,500 bail, to answer for grand larceny. Thus ®
endeth the story.

It is rumored that our next illus-

Prince Bismarck. The particular attraction for the 0]

of Sixth avenue and Thirteenth street, where he can b
enjoy the most appetizing of viands and liquors. w

An enviable and well-deserved rep

Charles Sumner, President Grant,
Horace Greeley, Roscoe Conkling and Carl Schurz
have each in turn visited Capt. William Fowleb’s gi
Knickerbocker Cottage, Nos. 154, 456 and 458 Sixth

In no particular should people be «

CLUBBING WITHOUT CAUSE. w
Complaint was made against O’Brien, of the Eighth w
Precinct, charging him with improper conduct to- ot
ward a colored citizen, named Morris Grant. The
evidence of Grant was that ne and three colored 01
friends entered the liquor saloon corner of Thomp- b«
son and Broome streets about half past eleven on *-
Sunday evening. After having several drinks, a col
ored woman cam§ in apd raised a disturbance and ei
the bar-tender ptft her out. She came back and ol
O’Brien was sent for, and 6n arriving she ran up ,
stairs then ran down again and took refuge in the a
cellar. The officer asked Grant if he had any matches th
so that he could go down and bring her out. O’Brien c
went after the woman, and bringing her up he oom
menced to club her, and somebody made a remark ™
that wasn’t pleasing to O’Brien, and without consid
ering who was the speaker, ha commenced to club in
Grant, who ran. O’Brien left the woman and pur
sued Grant, and, overtaking him, arrested him and as
renewed the clubbing. The defence was rather lame in
and unsustained by the testimony. The neighbor- w
hood was bad. That ie admitted. He clubbed Grant
because he insulted him; that is not proven. After u
clubbing him till he drew blood, because he put his i’
hand in his pocket to got his handkerchief to wipe
the blood from his face, O’Brien gave him a further
clubbing, under the impression that he meant to
draw a pistol. He then charged that Grant was a b'
bad character, but the police themselves proved it q
to be beyond reproach. The case was sent to the
Board, and it will either boa fine of ten days or a 0
dismissal from ttxe department. t£
THE LAST RESORT OF TIPPLERS. si
Corner of Clark and Broome streets tjiere is a gro
cery and liquor store, kept by John Rose, the resort
of ohimney-sweeps, white-washers, carpet-shakors, d
hall-scrubbers, thieves, and other lusus natural. A .
man and woman entered Rose’s store and got drunk. A
and the man slapped the woman and the woman hit P
the man, and Rose says he put both out. When a Bi
man or woman got drunk in his place he shoved
them out in the street. He said Officer McLaughlin n
stood on the corner and cried “ shame,” and told fi
him he could make more money out of woman than
men; then he boat him and took him to the station- .
house. That was one si<le of the story. The other u
was that Rose came out to McLaughlin and said tha t tl
he put on too many airs, then he attacked him and p
tore his blouse, and a crowd of roughs camo up be- .
hind him and “ doublo banked ” him,” that is, trip- D
ped him up. and stole his pistol, and when he was h
down would not let him get up, giving Rose a chance jj
to gouge out liters, AS C?ni>l’iS“;oner Smith tm’j -

it is not at all surprising that ex-Offlcer Schuyler' J
who was recently dismissed on the testimony of ■*
Roundsman Molly, should make the attempt, and
now takes steps to have him indicted for perjury ®
Nor is it at all surprising that he should have been L
been so fully reported in tfce daily papers that little
•need be said about it. Jlelly went thfee tim& SVe? t
Van Ranst’s post, and, failing to find him, went to
the station-house to see if he was there. He went v
back on the pdst, found him, asked where he had 1
been, and, for an answer, received four telling blows e
from a club on the head. In defense, Van Ranst .
brought three witnesses to swear that when the two lc
officers met, the roundsman asked where he had u
been, and his reply was: “On post.” One of the t]
officers said—doubtful which—“ You are a liar-” the
otner: “You are ad—d liar.” ’ I*
The witnesses swear that the man with the smooth w
face, Melly, male the first stroke with bi 3 club, and d
Van Ranst returned the compliment. As the club
bin" was i)8 quick as thought, and it was dark, that “
testimony has to be taken with a grain of allowance
particularly, when a positives! witness says it eci tb
curved on Sunday or Monday night, when it oc
curred on Friday. Another Fitness, Mr. Rilyea, un- “
partaker, SAys he saw Van Ranst pass his door three cc
tinies while the roundsman was looking for him se
and every time he put the time down on a slate; for •
what purpose he does not say; he did it that night. 13
John Somerly, a barkeeper at No. 11l Broome street*
says as soon as he saw the clubs raised he rushed in
the house so that if trouble came he might not be »,
called upon as a witness, and yet with all his precau

JAMAICA GINGER. M
John Kelly, Sixth Precinct, since his appointment, ni
six months ago, has been fined seven days’—abou 1 n
s23i Oi) Tuesday he was tried on the charge of in
toxicaiion. He left tho station-house at twenty min- tb
utos past six o'clock in the morning, after return In
roll-call.- At seven o’clock Sargeant Douglas, who
was on desk duty, went to the door of the station
house and saw Keily in uniform staggering through M
the street. He called him in tho station-house, sent
him up stairs, and made him don citizens clothes, 3;
then made him take a seat in the back room. Ke!- m
I>’s ex use was that he had been suffering from diar
rhea on leaving tho station-house, and all that he
took was some Jamaica ginger, and that upset him.
The case waf referred to tue Board. 80

on the corner of North Moore and Washington streets,
at half-past five o’clock A. M., while on patrol duty.
The inspector said he saw him go down to the place
and get two glasses. He did not see him drink the
■econd glass, but saw him hand it back, then drink
the second glas?, which appeared to be water. Ha
would not swear that he drank liquor, but the move
ment looked suspicious. Greogory swor» that he
had a stomach ache, and went down and got a glass
of Jamaica ginger to help him. The case wks refer

COULDN’T BE TEMPTED.
Carpenter, of the Second Precinct, was charged
with entering the liquor saloon northeast corner of
Broadway and Fulton street, kept by Sandy Spencer,
and drinking a glass of liquor. The roundsman said
he stood in the Herald building and heard Carpenter
ask Officer Trass to go down and have a drink He
declined; then Carpenter said he had the stamps, the
coast was clear, and he would go it on his own hook.
After giving the officer time to get below and call for
a drink, he came out and saw him with the glass at
his mouth. Carpenter swore he was not in the sa
loon, and Mr. Spencer said that he had asked the
officer to drink twenty times, but he had always re
fused. His barkeeper, who could not get to court,
told him that the officer was not in the saloon that
night, nor did he get any spirituous liquor. The
case was referred.
A WOMAN SCREAMS.
Martin, of the Eleventh Precinct, had Avenue B
trom Fourteenth street to Houston for a post, and
Roundsman Mead went over his post twice and was
on it for half an hour. Martin said he heard the
aoream of a female in Tompkins square, and enter
ing the grounds, he found a female struggling with a
man. He said it was his daughter; he didn’t want
her to be out there so late. Father Mooney was a
witness to the transaction, but he told the officer that
tie had conscientious scruples about coming into
court. While in the square the roundsman must
have passed. He was fined three days.

THE CHAMPIONSHIP QUESTION.
There is a point, respecting which we believe no
lefinite conclusion has been arrived at, at the meet
ng of the Base Ball Convention, on the 26th ult.,
ind which, if not satisfactorily disposed of at once,
vill be likely to create a deel of heartburning and
lisappointment at the conclusion of the season. We
dlude to the games which have been played with
lefunct clubs. The question is: Shall the games
with defunct clubs count in the championship record
)rnot? If they are to count, what will those clubs
lo who had not contended agains the deiunct clubs ?
kre they to be allowed to register victories in such a
;ase? Surely not.
Take the National Club for example, which is not
ret defunct, as has been announced, but which is
jeing kept quietly in the background by Mr. Young,
for the present, and which will shortly make its re
appearance in a reorganized and much improved
form. The Nationals played one game with the Troy
31ub and were, of course, whipped. Had they play
ad on till the crack of doom the probabilities are
they would not have won a single game from them,
ret are they to count eight victories because the
rroys have “busted” up ? Again, they played but
me game with the Cleveland Club, whom there was
ilso very little probability of their whipping, and, if
tbe true, the Forest Citys have “gone up,” they
will also count eight victories as against them. This
vould, we think, be most unfair to several of the
jther clubs, because the Nationals might form one
)f the strongest nines in the country from the dis
banded players, and start at once with a score of
iwenty-three victories—eight from the Cleveland,
nght from the Troy, and seven from the Olympic
dubs—all won on paper. The Eckford Club would
ilso be in a similar position, starting with twenty
hree victories—nine from the Olympic, eight from
Cleveland, and six from the Troy Clubs—all won on
>aper also.
The only fair and legitimate course to pursue is,
n our opinion, to cancel all games with such clubs
is were defunct when the championship rule respect
ng the number of games which constituted a series
>vas altered. If tne championship is to be decided
ipon the question of the real merits of the respect
ive clubs, and not upon the outside issues, then
nothing remains but to throw out the games entirely,
and let the competition be as among the live mem
bers of the association. To prevent cavilling or
quibbling ata future time, the sense of the members
of the Professional Base Ball Association should be
taken upon the point immediately, and the question
settled.
MUTUAL vs. ATLANTIC.
One of the old-time struggles took place on Thurs
day, on the Union ground, between the Mutuals and
Atlantics, who played tho third game of their cham
pionship series, in the presence of about nne thou
sand spectators. Both clubs appeared equally deter
mined and confident, and the result was one of the
finest games of the season. Both pitchers are very
difficult to bat, and both were ably supported by
their respective teams, Britt, of the Atlantics, being
the better supported of the two. One of the princi
pal features of the game was the extraordinary third
base play of Ferguson, who never played as well as
he has done this season. He picked- up some very
hot difjQUlt balls, and sent them flying to first
base with a force that must have tested Dehlman’s
capacity for his position to the utmost. Burdock
and Beavaus also played well. On the Mutual side
some very fine plays were made, but they were
marred In effect by one or two extraordinary muffs
by the same men who shortly before had played so
DnuiauWy. Taking it altogether, however, the game
was a pretty one, closely contested througnout, uud
intensely interesting up to the very finish. The fol
lowing is the score :

BOSTON VS. ATLANTIC.
On Monday the Boston Bed Stockings played the
fourth game of the championship series with the Al
lanites of Brooklyn, on the Capltoline ground.
There were about one thousand persons present,
of whom were highly pleased with the immense ’
provement displayed by the Atlantic boys, - d
rapidly earning a reputation worthy of t> .no a
days of the ex-champions. Few per -e palmi £
them to do more than simply to r “ions expect,

Stockings, through a miserable piece of judgment on
be part of Burdock, managed to make the winning
run. As soon as that was made, the boys, appeared
not to care how many more runs they made, so that
it was not until they had secured five runs that they
were disposed of, and the score stood 17 to 12. The

BOSTON vs. ATLANTIC.
The fifth game of the championship series be
tween the Bostod BeJ Stockings and the Atlantics,
was played at Boston on Friday, in presence of
1,000 spectators. The Atlantics, fatigued from their
exertions against the Mutuals on Thursday and their
long Journey by rail to Boston the same night, were
unfit to show themselves off to any advantage against
the powerful Red Stocking nine on Friday, and
therefore, it is not surprising they were badly
whipped by the latter players. The Bostons no
doubt will, in a great measure, recover the fine form
they showed before they went to the seaside to te
mperate, but up to Monday last when they played
:he Atlantic boys in Brooklyn they had not done so,
t is therefore fair to suppose the Atlantics were
sompletely fagged on Friday and could not con
lequently play their average game. The following

BALTIMORE VS. MANSFIELD.
The fourth game of the championship series be
ween the above clubs was played at Baltimore on
Iriday. The contest was a tong, tedious and unin
erosting one, the Mansfields playing, if possible, a
vorse game than on the previous day, while the Bal
imoreans played a wretched game, allowing the ‘
ilansfielda to score nine unearned runs. Brainard .

BALTIMORE vs. MANSFIELD.
On Thursday the third gams of tho championship
lories between the Baltimore and the Mansfields, ot
Uiddlotown, Cann., was played at Baltimore. Tho
tfausfio ds had strengthened their nine by taking io
Bruaud the old Bod Stocking pitcher, but it is
doubtful if thoy hfXfr gfaiu-ed anything: by so doing •
as Bsntly has shown fciH&elf quite equal to his posi
tion as pitcher all thrGSgh the season whenever, he
received anything like tJ’Jeq.ttate support from the
other members of the nine. The Mansfields'played

RESOLUTE vs. MUTUAL.
On Friday, the Resolutes, of Elizabeth, N» J., one
of the strongest, if not the strongest, amateur club 3
in the country, played a game with the Mutuals, on
the Union grounds, Williamsburgh. Both clubs
played well, the Besolutes, by their fine, sharp j
fielding, showing to great advantage. In keeping f
the Mutual score down to five runs, they accom
plished a feat which not many, even of the strongest j
professional clubs, have been able to do. The Reso- i
lutes, however, never show very well at the bat, j
and Cummings’ fine and difficult pitching puzzled -
them immensely. The game was a brief and inter- |
esting one, well and quickly played on both sides, <
and was much enjoyed by those present. The fol- <
lowing is the score :

ANOTHER INTERNATIONAL CONTEST. 1
We have had international prize fights and boat
races, and there has been considerable talk of an in
ternational horse race, but, up to the present time,
chin musio” is al) that it has resulted in. We have
also had international cricket matches, but we have
not had a regular set to with the Britishers at our *
national game. The Baltimore Club, of Baltimore, ‘
lately made a foraging excursion into Canada, and 1
found, to their intense surprise and mortification, ’
that the colonial Britishers could play “ some” at
base ball, as, in a game which they played with the 1
Guelphs, of Montreal, they were scooped in very i
neatly. This victory over the Baltimoreans has evi- 1
dently roused the appetite of the British lion for <
more blood; and as we are told in the natural history 1
books that the lion does not prey on prostrate car- 1
casses, the Guelphs have resolved to fly at higher ‘
game. The Mutuals, although not the representa- *
tive champions of the United States, are the boys ]
the Canadians think of tackling next, and we believe 1
there is every prospect of their wishes being gratified
very soon. Mr. A. V. Davidson, the business man
ager of the Mutual Club, is in correspondence with 1
the Guelphs, and if matters can be made mutually
(no pun is intended) agreeable, the game will come 1
ofl in about a fortnight from the present time. We <
feel sure that such a contest would afford a great <
deal of interest to the lovers of our national game in 1
New York and its vicinity, and there is but little
doubt the Canadians would meet with a hearty wel- 1
come and good treatment on their visit. Apart from I
its Interest as a sort of international affair, the
Guelphs must undoubtedly possess considerable j
knowledge of, and skill in the practise of our national ;
game, as, in defeating the Baltimore Club, they <
gained a victory which was highly creditable to
them—the “canary bird” nine being one of the
strongest teams in the country. Whether they will
be able to bat the pitching of the “ little wonder” of* j
the Mutual Club is another thing. In any case, we 1
cannot but admire their pluck in going for the ,
Mutes. We hope by next Sunday to be able to in- £
form our readers that arrangements for the contest (
have been concluded, and announce the date of its
coming off.
BASE BALL GOSSIP.
It willbe pleasing intelligence to most of the lovers
of our National game, to learn that the Eckford Club, <
the nursery of nearly all the finest players in the
country, is again likely to take its place in the fore
most rank of the base ball playing fraternity. Seven
of the strongest players of the late Troy Club, in- «
including Capt. Jimmy Wood, the “Charmer,” little
Force, and Doug Allison, have joined it, and there
can be little doubt they will soon restore the old
Eckford to its pristine glory. The greatest harmony
prevails among the members, and with Mr. Ray to
manage the business portion of the work, the boys
ought to reap a'good financial harvest before the end
of the season. They make their first appearance
under the old flag on Tuesday, with the Resolutes;
but they will have a better opportunity of testing
their strength on Friday, with the Baltimore Club.
It would appear that the National Club, of Wash
ington, which every one supposed had long since
become defunct, has only been sleeping, but will
wake up again shortly with an immensely improved
nine. We will possibly hoar of the resurrection of
the Olympic Club next.
Th io AntiV rotjorted that Mr- rAmmovar. thft
energetic proprietor of the Union Ground, Williams
burgh, is about to organize a grand base ball tourn
ament, when prizes to the extent of about $3,000
will be contended for by the various competitors for
the championship. It will be a most interesting, and
no doubt profitable, entertainment.

Justices Cox, Coulter, and Ledwith, presided.
JAMES MONTGOMERY, j
the proprietor of a galvanic battery, was accused of f
stealing sls from Richard Farrell. Richard stated <
that while in company with a bevy of fast young la- J
dies at a house up town. James came in and ex
hibited his galvanic apparatus. Farrell invited the J
young ladies to try the instrument and they did so. j
Shortly after Montgomery took his departure. Just (
as he got outside the door one of the girls said to <
Farrel “didn’t you see that man taking your j
money?”
“ What man.? s
“Why that man gone out, ha put his battery to ’
your purse and it flew into it like magic.”
Richard bolted after Montgomery, and in a few ‘
moments he was in the clutches of the law for lar- 1
cany. Counselor Hummel, who appeared for the 1
defense, cross-examined the complainant, and in a 1
few moments made it as clear as day that his client 1
was innocent, and that the real thief was the wily i
damsel that said “didn’t you see that man taking (
your money.” The prisoner was discharged.

Campbell swore he didn’t touch the girl at all, bui

CEBAIEI/ SIXTEEN MONTHS AND RELEASED
WITHOUT k EXPLANATION.
The question h as often beon as &ed whether or nol
our lunatic asyluxk 9 can bo use(i for tilQ purpose of
incarcerating sane & ' orsons whom certain relative
or others were desirous 1 °ut of the way.
The following account v how a Prominent banker
and broker was incarces atad for sixteen weary
months; and then release* without explanation, is
alleged to be an illustration ot bo;y
restrained of his liberty. It is om tbe ri ’ oune of
Thursday last;
A once prominent banker of x tbls ci “ 7 y®2f®-day
made his reappearance after sik 9en “on tbs ab
sence, during which he has beenx confined in tha
Bloomingdale Lunatio Asylum, tiu ~ >n ß* l *° al ‘ ap
pearances, and according to the at mission or th«
keepers, he is unquestionably sane. ( He was arrest
ed last year, while sitting at his breaks ’ st
was taken, without a word of expl arsa r -’9 n » , t o to 3
asylum. Although subjected to no specie indignity,
he says that the treatment of the insv 39 oy th®
keepersis simply revolting. He kept a m di
ary of all that had occurred during his carcera
tion, and has given it to his lawver, John G. Town
send, who will make it the basis of an vit 03
which to begin proceedings in behalf of the & mtie
man named and three ladies, who will be bra nght
before the court on a writ of habeas corpus i next
week. The affidavits of all these personsj.a-ud h a
former keener at the asylum, will also be present
to the Grand Jury for the purpose ol securing au A ’•

Mr. Townsend, in conversation yesterday with a r-A
porter, stated that the gentleman just released h.a.ik
not been discharged on habeas corpus, for as aoosßa
as it became known at the asylum that
were to be taken in court, word was sent that
prisoner was sufficiently recovered, and had been
released.
“Mr. Townsend said he had instructed his client
not to accept voluntary release, for Ihe reason that'
to avoid public inquiry, the Superintendent of the
Asylum discharges those for whom habeases are is
sued, in order to make a return of “ not in custody” 1
to the writ. In three instances, he said, in which ho
had sued out writs, premature dismissals by the Su
perintendent had prevented publicity being given to
revolting cases of the incarceration of sane persons
without even the form ot law. He mentioned the
oases of an elderly lady from New Jersey, committed
by her son, who made no opposition to her release;
and another of a merchant, who, after many months’
confinement, was dismissed before the habeas could
be served, and who is now doing business in the city,
and as sane as any other merchant la it.
“ Tho gentleman who was dismissed yesterday was
never treated medically during his entire imprison
ment, and his manner and general intelligence pro- «
hibit the belief that he is of unsound mind. Ha
does not yet know by whom he was incarcerated, or
on whose medical certificate; but his lawyer visited
the Asylum at a late hour yesterday, to examine tho
papers in his case, and those of tue throe iadies al
luded to, in whom the gentleman released takes
sympathetic interest, and who are declared by him.
to be sane.”
The victim in this cases is a Mr. Van Vleeck, a
gentlemen aged sixty years, and for very many yeara
past a well-known member of the financial com
munity. A reporter of the Dispatch had an inter
view yesterday with him, He bore every appear
ance of being sane, and he declared he would prose
cute to tho end those who had been instrumental in
causing his incarceration without cause.. He con
firmed the statement in the Tribune, and said that
the half had not beon told. . In the absence of his
counsel, Mr. John D, Townsend, he declined to state
the details of his confinement, or who had been in
strumental in placing him there, but that in good,
time he would mako all public*

He husband is spoiled in cooking, if you wish to
irt make a good dish of him, attend to the fol
lowing remarks : Some women go about as if
their lords were bladders, and blow them up.
ilxth Others keep them constantly in hot water,
: in- while others again freeze them by conjugal
coldness. Some smother them in hatred, con
okod tention, and variance ; and some keep them in
pickle all their lives. These women always
lway serve them with tongue sauce. Now, it can
aso not be supposed that husbands will be tender
and good, managed in this way ; but thoy are,
on the contrary, quite delicious when well pre
served.

the English language was very imperfect ha
was closely watched by the denizens across:

that perhaps be was the fugitive Sturgeon it.

Ho was bound with ropes, hu over the Iroail
several times with a club, and otherwise mal
treated. On tho night of Friday ha was
brought across the river without any regard
being paid to the extradition taw, and lodged
in the county jail. Yesterday Jean’s identity
was clearly proved, several persons about tho
jail, and many leading citizens, declaring that
ho bad no resemblance to Sturgeon. Captain

Jean at liberty, and he went on his way rs

temperance man, should be pul to bed; assured
him he would never say a word about his being • in

should ever know of hta condition; begged him
never to touch another drop of liquor, and oven
