Sunday Edition. Sept. 15
linlst entitled to rank as the successor of the great
Paganini, will also, for the first time, make his ac
quaintance with an American audience. Mlle. Lou
ise Liebhart, a balladist who long ago won distinc
tion, and has for years been the reigning star at the
fashionable concerts of London, is another new
comer, and one who, if her European reputation bo
sustained, may be expected to create a profound im
pression. Mlle. Louise Ormeni, a favorite contralto,
from the principal Italian opera houses, is also in
cluded in this brilliant list, and a full grand orches
tra, under the direction of Herr Carl Bergmann, will
perform a choice selection of musical gems during
the evening. Mons, L. Bembielinski will officiate as
Mrs. Macready at the Academy of Music.—
On Monday evening the Academy was well filled by an
audience assembled to witness the somewhat novel
spectacle of a lady impersonating the principal male
character in Shakspere's play of “The Merchant of
Venice.” The artist who undertook this self-imposed
•task was the distinguished tragedienne, Mrs. Ma
cready, who has already earned a high reputation
for the excellence of her general impersonations,
during a recent tour in the country. We can scarcely
approve of Mrs. Macready's desire to obtain fame as
a representative of male characters, as the only satis
factory justification of her assumption of such parts
would seem to be the superiority of her impersona
tions to those of actors who have already distin
guished themselves in the same parts. Now, al
though we can award Mrs. Macready very high
praise, indeed, for refined acting, finished elocution,
• and admirable conceptions, we cannot witness her
appearance as Skylock, or Richelieu, (which latter she
played on Friday night,) with the same pleasure that
we have been accustomed to experience at the hands
of some of our most accomplished Shaksperean act
ors, In characters, such as Lady Macbeth, we know
Mrs. Macready to be unsurpassed, and she is an
actress incapable of doing anything’badly; but her
efforts In the male impersonations referred to, are
marred by the thinness of her voice, and her womanly
appearance, despite an admirable make-up in each
case. In Richelieu, this was particularly observable,
her gait and action being out of keeping with the
stately tread of the great Cardinal. Curiosity, how
ever, will doubtless prompt many to witness Mrs.
Macready’s performances, during her tour, which
commences to-morrow evening, and as her company
Is a large and powerful one, and the costumes and
appointments unusually elegant and appropriate,
her success seems almost a foregone conclusion.
Irving Hall—Sunday Evening Concerts.—
The first of a series of popular Sunday evening con
certs will be given to-morrow evening in Irving Hall,
when several well known and justly esteemed artists
will render a number of choice vocal and instru
mental selections. The principal vocalist will be
Madam Anna Bishop, the favorite songstress, who
has so long enjoyed the admiration and esteem of
the music-loving citizens of New York. The emi
nent pianist, Mr. Carl Walter, will perform on his
favorite Instrument, and a full orchestra, under the
able direction of Mr. Carl Bergmann, will contribute
materially to the success of the concert. Mr. George
Colby will officiate as accompanist. These concerts
should at once become very popular, the price of ad
mission being placed as low as fifty cents, and the
attractions to be submitted during the series being
very great. Messrs. L. F. Harrison and E. Uhlig
are the managers, and tickets may be had at almost
any of the prominent ticket offices throughouFlhe
Steinway Hall—The Strakosch Concerts.
—The first of the series of concerts to be given by
the Strakosch Grand Concert Company will take
place to-morrow evening at Steinway HalL From
the great array of musical talent Mr. Strakosch has
gathereU together, there can be no doubt that these
concerts will prove one of the most delightful treats
the New York lovers of music have experienced in
many years. Few of the present generation of con
cert goers have heard the Incomparable Mario, as
sixteen years have elapsed since he was last in Amer
ica, but from all we can learn, Time has dealt so
lightly with his wonderful organ that a great pleasure
is in store for those who hear him for the first time,
and a fair idea may be formed of what his voice was
when in his prime. Among other pieces, Mario will
Bing Donizetti’s “Spirito Gentil,” and will take part
in the quartette from “Un Ballo in Maschera,” and
the quartette from “ Martha.” Miss Carlotta Patti,
the queen of the concert room, as she has not been
inappropriately styled, will be one of the greatest at
tractions, her exquisite voice and splendid style of
vocalization being unsurpassed. She will among
other morceaux sing “Ardon gl incensi” from
“ Lucia,” variations “di Bravura” by Pooch, and
will take part in the quintette from “Un Ballo” and
the quartette from “Martha.” These eminent ar
tists will be supported by Miss Teresa Carreno, a lady
whose musical ability has been the subject of eulo
gistic comment both here and in Europe. She will
perform Mendelssohn’s Hondo Cacrlcisa with orches
tra accompaniment, and a Fantasia on airs from
“Faust.” M. Sauret, the distinguished violin vir
tuoso, will perform several popular Hungarian airs
as well as Rossini’s “Di Tanti Palpiti.” Miss Annie
Louise Carey and Signor Ronconi will also make
their appearance at these concerts. The grand or
chestra will be under the direction oFm.'s. nenrens,
and the piano accompanist wil Ibe Signor Marzo. A
second and third concert will be given on Wednesday
and Friday evenings, and a matinee concert will be
given on Saturday at 1:30.
Tony Pastor’s Opera-House.—After a re
cess of much more than usual duration, caused by
the great success of Mr. Pastor’s troupe on their
traveling tour, this very popular house will be re
opened to-morrow evening, with a company undeni
ably strong, both in point of numbers and talent.
Among the list of names submitted we perceive
those of several who have already earned their claim
to be reckoned first class favorites. Mr. Gus Wil
liams, the most accomplished and amusing Dutch
comedian on the varieties stage, will make his first
appearance in New York this season. Billy Carter,
a banjo soloist and humorist of rare abilities, is an
other name that will add greatly to the attraction.
Professor O’Reardon, a musical professor of note,
and Hen Mason, a very great favorite at this house,
will aid in strengthening the company. Harry Ker
nelland Johnny Manning, negro comedians, Frank
Girard, stage-manager, and 0. F. Seabert, are sure of
a warm reception; while Tony Prstor himself may
anticipate a welcome back that will convince him of
the great esteem in which he is justly held. Jennie
Engel, a serio-comic vocalist, who never fails to
create a sensation; Kitty Leroy, an artistic and
graceful dancer; Miss Clara Brooks, a distinguished
protean artist; Miss Celia Iferd, a dashing comedi
enne, and the great original duetists and burlesque
performers, Messrs. Harrigan and Hart, whose “Lit
tie Frauds” have been already so much admired in
this city, will make up the company. The orchestra
will, as heretofore, be under the direction of Mr.
Joseph Braham, and there will be matinees every
Tuesday and Saturday during the season.
Emerson’s Mintsrels—Lina Edwin’s Thea
tre. —This clever company of minstrel performers
have already made a highly favorable impression on
the public, and have the satisfaction of playing to
large audiences each evening. Very little change
was found necessary in the programme last week,
but the utmost appreciation of the spectators was
exhibited at each representation. Billy Emerson’s
song and dance business is extremely good, while
his exhaustless wit and pleasing vocal powers aid in
rendering him unsurpassed as an end man. Mr. J.
H. Talbot is another eccentric comedian and vocalist
who is greatly admired, but we would advise both
he and Mr. Emerson to cease introducing senseless
London Music Hall rhymes into minstrel entertain
ments. Messrs. Frazer, Dempster, Palmer and
Houldsworth, the sentimental vocalists, are honored
with numerous encores, and the comical act of “ The
Clothes Dealer,” by Emerson and Palmer, causes
great merriment. Sheridan and Mack give their
* protean entertainment with every possible success,
and the instrumental performances are a pleasing
feature of the programme, a new oill is announced
for the present week. Matinee on Saturday.
BA¥ Francisco Minstrels.—St. James The
atre.—Messrs. Birch, Backus, and Wambold are
DOW perfectly satisfied that they made an advisable
change in removing up town, as the support ac
corded them in their new abode is far in advance of
anything experienced even in their palmiest days in
Broadway. The performances submitted by the
are extremely attractive, something now
being Introduced almost every evening, so that one
can visit the St. Jarnos Theatre frequently, and find
Dovelty with each visit. Beaumont Read is gaining
popularity very rapidly, and the other members o:
the troupe continue up to their old-time standard.
Matinee on Saturday.
Bryant’s Minstrels.—The opera house in
Twenty-third street presents a very comfortable ap
pearance each evening long before the hour an
nounced for commencing, and at the conclusion o'
the performance the visitors take their departure
highly delighted and charmed with the treat- en
joyed. During no former season has Dan Bryant
presented a stronger combination than that he can
Dow boast of, and with such artists as Kelly and
Leon, Nelse Seymour, Morrissey and Emerson, Dave
Reed and Dan Bryant, it would be difficult to find a
better. Au entirely original programme will be sub
mitted this week, and at the matinee on Saturday.
White’s Atheneum.— Maffit and Bartholo
tnew, the renowned pan tomimists, commenced an
engagement on Monday evening, and though the
stage was rather small for their style of enterfatn
menU, were favorably received, and made a decided
hit. Bicardo, the buriesqu prima donna, made a
highly successful first appearance, and m a burlesque
•cene with Luke Schoolcraft, and a comic act with J.
O. Stewart, impressed the audience very favorab.y
isdead. Messrs. Heary« Nichols. Echwaicardi and
Rudolph rendered a quartette pleasingly, and McKetf
and Rogers were warmly encored for their astonish
ingly agile dancing. J. K. Campbell was very amus
ing in his banjo entertainment, and J. 0. Stewart
and Joe Lang were, as usual, immensely funny,
Mr. J. H. Budworth, an old established favorite,
whose specialty is negro and burlesque characteriza
tions, will appear to-morrow evening and during the
present week. Matinee on Wednesday.
Grand Opera House—Sunday Evening
Concerts.—Mr. Augustin Daly has finally arranged
with Mr. Max Maretzek for a series of Sunday even
ing operatic concerts during the season, the first of
which will be given at the Grand Opera House on
Sunday, October 6th. Mr. Daly promises that these
musical entertainments will surpass anything of the
kind ever given in New York, and as, In addition to
the greatest soloists in the country, he will have the
aid of an orchestra sixty in number, under the direc
tion of Maretzek; the full strength of the Italian
Opera Company, and his own “ Le Roi Carotte” com
bination for the greater effect of the choruses, we do
not think he promises more than he can and intends
to fulfill. When the names of some of the principal
artists engaged are announced, it will be an agree
able surprise to all lovers of music. The magnificent
art gallery into which the always elegant vestibule of
the Grand Opera House has been transformed, will
add greatly toward popularizing those entertain
ments, as during the performances of orchestral
music, hundreds of couples ean enjoy the music
while indulging in an agreeable promenade and ad
miring some of the finest works of art in the country.
Booth’s Theatre.— Owing to ths non-arrival
of Mr. and Mrs. Dion Boucicault, who were unable
to leave Liverpool prior to the 7th, the production
of “Arrah-Na-Pogue,” has been deferred for
another week, and for the next six nights Mr. James
W. Wallack will continue to delight playgoers with
his admirable impersonation of Mathias Kant, in the
great emotional drama of “ The Bells.” On Mon
day, Sept. 23d, the Boucicaults will positively ap
pear, introducing at the same time Mr. Shiel Barry,
the celebrated Irish comedian, Mr, C. Alexander,
and Miss Geraldine Stuart, all welcome additions to
the American stage. Last matinee of “The Bella”
on Saturday.
Olympic Theatre.—" The Red Pocket-Book”
has been very judiciously withdrawn, and to-morrow
evening Miss Charlotte Thompson will commence
her second engagement during the present season,
again appearing in the French adaptation of Dumas’
“La Princess Georges,” entitled, in its English form,
“One Wife.” We understand that since its last pro
duction, when it was unanimously and justly con
demned by the press of this city, “One Wife” has
undergone careful revision, and many of the most
objectionable features removed. This being the
case, there is no reason why Miss Thompson’s pres
ent engagement should not be a very successful one.
That lady is a very pleasing actress, and among the
company to support her are many popular artists.
Mr. Neil Warner will represent the lawyer, De Win
ter; Mr. John W. Norton the faithless busband, Van
dyke; Miss Ida Vernon the scheming adventuress,
Mrs. Hoffman; and Mr. Harry Hotto the Swiss valet,
Victor. There will be matinees of “One Wife,” on
Wednesday and Saturday.
Bowery Theatre.— The popular drama of
“Bertha, the Sewing Machine Girl,” was played
every night last week to excellent houses. The play
introduced some new people to the Bowery au
diences. Notable among these were Miss Anna
Mortimer, who sustained the part of Hester Smith,
and Mr. Harry Holmes, who played the character of
Robert Curzon. Miss Mortimer is destined to be
come a favorite here, as she is a most pleasing and
meritorious actress, and a very pretty woman. Mr.
Holmes gives evidence of culture in his acting, and
though the part of Robert Curzon is a disagreeable
one he made it less objectionable by his gentlemanly
bearing. The foregoing lady and gentleman are
worthy additions to a very strong company. Mrs.
W. G. Jones’ re-appearance was hailed with delight
by the audience, and she acted the part of Bertha
with her accustomed grace and force. Mr. William
Marden likewise was heartily received on his reap
pearance as Philip Hamilton. Indeed, all the old
favorites received kindly welcome, and the new
people were encouraged by the recognition which
their acting merited. In the farce of the. “ Rough
Diamond” Miss Madeline Hardy sustained the part
of Margery. Though this lady is not new to this
city she appeared for the first time at the Bowery
on Monday night. Her playing of the hoydenish
character in which she was ca§t pleased the au
dience, and she was rewarded with generous ap
plause. She plays with great spirit, has a very
pleasing voice, and is not lacking in beauty. We
can say, without reservation, that the present com
pany equals in every point of excellence any com
pany which has performed at the Old Bowery in
many a year.
On Monday and every evening during the week a
new play entitled “Death Trap; or, A Catspa w,” will
be performed. This drama has been played in Lon- *
don with great success, the papers of that city repre
senting it as one of the most thrillingly sensational
dramas which has recently been produced on the
Tt —«» v- scenery and
sensational effects, and the characters
formed by the entire strength of the Bowery’s ex
cellent company. The performance each evening
will begin with the amusing drama of the “Ser
geant’s Wedding.”
Grand Opera House.— The effect of " King
Carrott” is greatly aided by the admirable perform
ances of the Majiltons and the Lauri Family. The
former are certainly the greatest and most effective
pantomimists that have ever been seen in this coun
try, and the latter includes several very accom
plished dancers. The Dolly Varden dance, in the
second act, and the wonderful evolutions of the
graceful Majiltons, generally ensure the very hearti
est approbation of the large audiences. The at
tendance continues encouragingly good. Matinee on
Wallack’s Theatre.— The season of the
Lydia Thompson troupe at this theatre is now
rapidly drawing to a close, and with a few nights
more will be lost all opportunity of witnessing their
amusing burlesque representations until their ap
pearance at the Olympic, next Spring. “Ixion,”
being found sufficiently attractive, will be retained
on the boards during the present week, and Theyre
Smith’s charming comedietta, “A Happy Pair,”
will precede it each evening. & The popularity of Miss
Thompson and her company is now greater than
ever, and the audiences nightly assembled are
among the largest the queen of burlesquers has ever
ever been fevoted with. On Monday, Sept. 23d, the
Praeger Family, artists of whom repute speaks favor
ably, will make their first appearance, and the bur
lesque of “ Kenilworth” will probably be produced.
“Ixion” matinee on Saturday.
Wood’s Museum.— The Fall and Winter sea
son was commenced on Monday afternoon last, when
Tobin’s ever popular comedy of “ The Honeym oon*
was presented, with a very strong cast, including
the favorite actor, Mr. T. W. Keene, Miss De For
rest, and other prominent mempers of the company.
Mr. Keene played the Duke Aranza, in a very fin
ished manner, evincing close study, and a thorough
appreciation of the part. Mr. Wallace gave a fair
interpretation of the character of Lampedo, and Mr.
T. L. Connor, though a little heavy, was a very good
representative of Roland. Miss De Forrest, who is
rapidly advancing in her profession, was a very
pleasing Juliana, and the Misses Arnott and Ather
ton played with their usual ability. The manage
ment of Wood’s Museum are assuredly second to
none in this city for enterprise, and liberality of ca
tering. In addition to a stock company, embracing
nearly forty artists, a supplementary burlesque
organization, comprising star performers of great
celebrity, are retained upon the establishment. All
pieces are produced with due regard to scenic and
other effects, while the costumes and appointments
are always exceptionally fine. This style of manage
ment must necessarily secure for the theatre great
popularity, while the museum dep irtment continues,
as formerly, an immense attraction to the city.
On Monday evening, a burlesque extravaganza,
described as oiiginal, and having the name of Mr.
James Barnes attached as author, was submitted for
critical comment, and we regret to state, cannot be
favorably spoken of. From it, however, we learned
one important fact, and that is, how a gentleman
can attain the dignity of authorship without any of
the trouble usually attending it. The plan is this:
Take the works of gentlemen who have already dis
tinguished themselves in the writing of the class of
plays desired; pick out the most ingeniously con
trived couplets and jokes from as many of them as
you can get hold oi; work the collection up into one
confused mass, here and there introducing the latest
minstrel rhymes or music hall songs, and theu be
stow upon the whole a name hitherto unused. Ap
pend your own name as author, and describe the
production as original. This is the plan upon which
Mr. Barnes has worked, and it must bo confessed
that a very sorry mess he has made of it Byron’s
burlesque of “Conrad, the Corsair,” and other bur
lesqves by the same author and others, have been
largely drawn upon in the travestie called “ Chow
Chow,” and the very little that is original in the
piece is undeserving of favorable notice. Miss Paul
ine Markham was very pleasing as Maimounie, her
singing of “Little D itey” being deservedly encored.
Lisa Weber was rattling as ever in the part of Con
rad. Emma Grattan made a capivating Medora, and
Belle Howitt a charming representative of Prince
Pretty Pill. Mr. Sneidun was much more pleasing
than usual, playing his part, Beebo Bazil, quieter
than is customary with him, arid Cuarley Sturges
kept the audience in great good humor by his effect
ive pantomime as Skidamalink. Mr. W. L. Mansell,
(from tho principal London theatres) appe'.rod as
Yusetowiz, the king’s better halt, but evinced no
burlesque humor whatever, and displayed not] the
dramatic ability. His make-up was very
gooA and bis tall figure gave him a ludicrous ap
peartfOce, but he failed to make anything of a part
in which he might easily have distinguished himfceflf.
The oast wa',s in every other respect strong, and the’
scenery and dtfstumes very pretty.
At the matinees this week. Baker and Farron will
appear in their specially of “ Chris and Lena,” and
in the evenings “Chow Chow” will be repeated, Mr.
George Atkin, an exceedingly meritorious burlesque
actor, taking the place of Mr. Mansell.
Fifth Avenue Theatre.— Bronson O. How
ard’s new comedy of “Diamonds,” is attracting the
same largo and fashionable audiences to Mr. Daly’s
pretty theatre that were observable during the run
of “Divorce,” and “Article 47,” and though it can
not be compared to either of the above-mentioned
works, it would appear as if its career were destined
to be as brilliant. No change is announced, at least
for the present, and at the Fifth Avenue Theatre
“Diamonds” may safely bo said to be trumps. Mat
inee on Saturday.
Union Square Theatr®. —AH preparations
having been completed, the season at this theatre
will be inaugurated on Tuesday evening, when Vic
torien Sardou’s latest society'play, “Agnes,” will be
presented, with the charming actress Miss Agnes
Ethel, as the heroine. By reference to the list of
artists engaged, and general arrangements of the
theatre, published in last week’s Disratoh, satisfac
tory proof will be found of the many claims held by
the management for the recognition of their house as
a leading comedy establishment; and very little
doubt is entertained that such recognition will at
once be granted. We will give full particulars of the
opening in our next.
Theatre Comique.— The dashing serio-comic
vocalist, Miss Annie Adams, who was wont to keep
our English cousins In the best of humor up till a
few months ago, returned to this oity, and made her
first appearance at the Theatre Comique, on Monday
evening. Her lively manner, and dashing style of
rendering her songs, seemed to please greatly, and
her engagement at this house may fairly be pro
nounced a success. Miss Jennie Hughes was, as
usual, repeatedly encored in her new and charming
songs, ondthe other artists strove with zeal to amuse
theirjpatrons. A new drama, from the pen of the pro
lific John F. Poole, closed tho bill each evening.
This week, quite a host of old favorites will re
appear, and for the remainder of the season, the
Comique will boast a company unsurpassed in the
United States. Mr. Frank Kerns, the amusing ne
gro comedian and character actor; Mackin and Wil
son, unrivaled as song and dance men; the Freeman
Sisjers, comediennes and vocalists; and Kitty O’Neil,
the charming danseuse, are all popular in New York,
and will be warmly welcomed back to-morrow even
ing. Matinee on Wednesday and Saturday.
Wa bare been favored with a perusal of a
new romantic Irish drama which will probably bo pro
duced at a leading theatre during the present season.
It is entitled “Phadrig-borg-Copple.” and is from the
pen of Mr. Frederick Percy, an accomplished and re
fined dramatist. The plot is strictly original and strik
ing, and each of the five acts of which the play consists,
would form an interesting drama of itself. The great
effect of the piece occurs in the fourth act. and is calcu
lated, we think, to cause a very great sensation among
playgoers. The language of the play ;s very much supe
rior to ordinary dramatic productions, the sketches of
character are unusually lifelike and natural, and in the
construction and arrangement of effects, the work of a
master hand is apparent. The scenic mo iels, which are
singularly beautiful, are from designs furnished by the
versatile and accomplished Julian Cross. There can be
little doubt that “Pnadrig-borg-Copple,” if produced in
a satisfactory manner, will prove the dramatic hit of the
A correspondent kindly favors with the
names of authors of pieces played by the Lydia Thomp
son Company; but, as the information is almost entirely
wrong, we must decline to avail ourselves of it. Colley
Gibber did not write the faroe of “The Little Rebel,”
H. J. Byron did not write the burlesque of “ Ernani,”
and Lydia Thompson assuredly never wrote a line of
“A Happy Pair.” “Ernani” was written by the late .
William Brough: “A Happy Pair.” by Theyre Smith,
author of “Uncle’s Will;” “Kenilworth.” by Andrew'
Halliday; “Lurline,”by H. J. Byron;” “ Ali Baba: or.
The Forty Thieves,” by the same writer. Farnie’s bur
lesques are, for the moe* part, plagiarisms of works by
Byron and Brough.
Mr. Alfred H. Pease has returned to the city
for the Fall and Winter season. This young American
pianist and orchestral oomposer, who has acquired so
well merited a reputation at Theodore Thomas’s con
certs, and whose songs, as sung by Miss Kellogg in Lon
don, have received the commendations of tne critics
and the applause of the publio, is now prepared to re
ceive a limited number of pupils. We learn that Mr.
Pease has now on hand two new compositions for Theo
dore Thomas’s orchestra, and two songs written ex
pressly for two of our native prima donnas.
Messrs. McDonough and Bidwell’s “Black

Greppo is spoken of as a first-class performance.
Mrs. F. S. Chaufrau, supported by Frederick
Robinson and a fine company, will open the season at
Ford’s Opera-House, Baltimore, on the 23d inst., in

Eionement” and “ Christie Johnstone,” are announced

and f nliuiM
For a considerable time- past there has been an
enmity existing between the infamous Sir William
De Varley, better known as Reddy the Blacksmith,
keeper of a safloon at No. 602' Broadway, and Alfred
Perkins, proprietor of a saloon at No. 598
Broadway. Both are low places,, the resort of prize
fighters, bullies, and other disreputable characters.
Reddy, on Friday night, accompanied by Edward
Wellington, of No, 595 Broadway, started out on a
spree. They visited several places, and soon after
two o’clock, A. M., considerably under the influence
of liquor, brought up in front of Perkins’ place. It
was closed for the night. The pair demanded ad
mittance. Perkins refused to open the door, and
ordered them away. Reddy declared that if the
door was not opened they would break it in,
Porkins still refused to open the door, and the
ruffians commenced an assault upon it. After sev
eral vigorous pushes, the door was forced from its
fastenings and swung open.
Perkins, who had warned the villains to desist
and go away, knowing Reddy’s desperate character—
he having been mixed up in several shooting and
stabbing affrays, in one of which (that with Jim
Haggerty, a Philadelphia ruffian, in the saloon cor
ner of Houston and Crosby streets) he had shot and
mortally wounded his opponent; so soon as Wel
lington and Reddy stepped inside of the doorway,
he fired at them.
entering just beneath his left eye and, passing in
ward, lodged near the back of the head. He fell to
th® floor insensible. Reddy, seeing the fate which
had befallen his companion, turned and fled. Per
kins made no effort to escape. Hearing the pistol
shot, officers Townsend and others hurried to the
spot and took Perkins into custody. He was re
moved to the Mulberry Street Police Station, and
locked up to await the result of Wellington’s wound.
The injured man was removed to the Mulberry
Street Police Station and attended by Police Surgeon
'McDonnell. The surgeon could not find the ball by
probing, and in his opinion the wound is exceedingly
dangerous. Should inflammation supervene, death
will almost certainly follow. Wellington was re
moved to Bellevue Hospital.
Coroner Young last evening proceeded to Bellevue
Hospital for the purpose of taking the ante mortem
statement of Edward Wellington. The latter was
found to be in a very low state. He corroborated
portions of the above statement. Perkins was com
mitted to the Tombs.
Among the most popular of the pleasure excur
sion associations of the Eleventh Ward is that named
after Hon. Wm, W. Cook, who has represented the
12th Assembly District in the Legislature the past
four years. On last Thursday the club went on an
excursion to Little Bay Side, the hotel at which place
is kept by ex-Alderman Tony Miller. The day was
cool and pleasant, and the association and guests en
joyed themselves well, especially at the dim.er table,
for the Cook boys are all famous trencher menl
When the good things eatable were disposed of,
toasts were in order and pleasant speeches were
made by Hon. W. W, Cook, Aiderman Woltman, ex-
Coroner Wm. C. Gover and Hon. Joseph Lyons, and
Patrick McGovern delighted the company with some
very fine singing. At a late hour tho association
started for home right well pleased with their day’s
sport. The following are the officers of the Wm. W.
Cook Association: Hugh Clark, President; Thos. F.
Daly, First Vice-President: James McGovern, Treas
urer, and Jesse Wood, Secretary. Among the mem
bars are many of the beat known ottizena of the

Patrick Roach, of 176 Madison street, yesterday
had a fight with John Reading, at the corner of East
and Grand streets, and was stabbed thrioe in the
left side with a pocket knife, sustaining slight
wounds. His assailant was arrested and locked up
in the Seventh Precinct station house.
Robert Simpson being ordered away from the pier
at the foot of Montgomery street yesterday by one
of tho workmen, James Winters, refused to leave,
and a fight sprung between them. Snatching up a
heavy stick Simpson struck Winters on the arm,
breaking it. The injured man was removed to
Bellevue, and Simpson arrested.
About 6 o’clock last evening Jonathan D. Post, Jo
seph H. Tupper and George Tupper, had a fight at
their boarding-house, No. 245 Spring street, in which

Capt. James Irving, of the detective xorce,
yvnUra.y with a writ of habeas corpus, is-
sued by Judge Leonard, requiring him to produce
the body of Wm. Forrester before the Justice issu

and an examination made by Justice Leonard. The
result of it was that the prisoner was remanded to
police headquarters.
Thus tar no new facts have been developed. The
statements of Samuel Felcker, a detective, relative
to the Nathan murder, are believed to be without
the slightest foundation.
Dangebous Illness of Police Com
missioneb Smith.—For some time past Henry
Smith, President of the Board of Police, has been
on his farm near the village of Amsterdam, N. Y.,
endeavoring to recruit his impaired health by fine
country air and plain food. He has never entirely
recovered from his alarming illness of last Winter
and Spring, and it was thought that change of air
and a removal from the worry of business and of
politics would improve his chances of recovery.
Within the past few days, Mr. Smi.h has become
worse, and his friends are apprehensive that he
may not recover. Indeed, It was rumored in the
city, yesterday, that he was dead, but this proved
to be unfounded. It is not believed that he is yet
in a critical condition. Judge Bosworth, when
asked, yesterday, if he had received any informa
tion from Mr. Smith for the preceding twenty-four
hours, replied that he had not, and thought if Mr.
Smith was in a critical condition, or dead, he would
Lave heard of it by telegraph.
Thomas Hughes, for several years employed as a
reporter on the American Standard, in Jersey City,
also a Legislative correspondent for several news
papers, died suddenly yesterday morning a few min
utes before 10 o’clock, at the residence of his moth
er in Grand street. Hughes was in usual good
health on Friday night, and returned home about
midnight, when he was soon after taken ill with con
vulsions. The symptoms becoming alarming, sev
eral physicians were called in, but they were unable
to afford any relief; and death resulted as above
stated. Dr. Varick is of the opinion that death was
caused by poison supposed to have been adminis
tered in liquor. Dr. Buck, the county physician,
will order an inquest to be held. The deceased was
26 years old, and highly respected.
Fracas in the Bowery.—While Jas.
McAvoy, aged twenty-nine years, of No. 201 Canal
street, was passing along Canal street, early yester
day, at the intersection of the Bowery he was met
and assaulted by Wm. McNamara, without provoca
tion, knocked down, beaten, and kicked, receiving
severe scalp wounds. The assailant was arrested,
and locked up in the Spring street police station.
McAvoy's wound was dressed by Police Surgeon
McDonnell, and he was then detained as complain,

our advertising columns it will be seen that Mr.
J. A. Macpherson, one of the bast and most popular
professors of danoing in this oity, has opened his
classes for the Winter season at his Academy, No,
303 West Fourteenth street. Mr. Macpherson has
for many years been before ths New York public as
a teacher. It is hardly, therefore, necessary for us
to eulogize him. His opening soiree will take place
on Tuesday evening.

A young and very pretty looking married lady, who
live® not more than fifty miles from Orange, is In the'
habit of driving ink) Newark in a Prince Albert
phaeton,- She has a husband who ia forty-five, and
she is jiiet twenty-three. He is terribly jealous of
her, and from what happened a day or two ago, it
would seem that his jealousy is not without a cause.
Last Thursday afternoon she drove into Newark, and
at the corner of Orange and Broad streets she
dropped a letter, which was picked up by a small
boy. It read as fallows:
■ Deab Will: Do come up to-night, and we will
have a good time. He is away, sad won't be back
, »1U to-morrow night. I love you so much, lam very
’ lonely without you. Please do not fail to come, I
want eo much to rest iw your dear arms to-night. It
fs fiard that we cannot be together always, but yOu
know he is from home at 1 nights so much, that you
can come often. He gert a fresh basket of cham°
pagne this week, and I guess he won't mfss one or
two bottles. Dear, I shall never forget the Eight you
staid in my little room at GApe May; it was the hap
piest tn my life. I do not know where it will end,'
but I would do almost anything for your sake.
Come up early, dear. I will let Mary go to church,
and you can come in after dark, you know. If any
body else calls, lam " not at home." We will turn
down the lights and close the binds.
Yours, ever, LaueA.
Now, the unsophisticated littls goose who wrote
this never dreamed that it would fall tn to other
hands than those for which it was intended. Bho
met in the street the " Will," who chanced to come
in her way, and delivered her message by word of
mouth, so all of the sweetness in the tender missive
was wasted on the desert air. She was too much
dazed with love to think of the consequences of
losing the letter, as the finder would probably be in
total ignorance of the source from whence it came,
though he might wonder who the devil "Will" and
"Laura" were.
The young man went, obedient to the call of his
mistress. He found everything serene. Not even
the " watch dog’s distant bark" disturbed his fond
anticipations. The halcyon hours sped swiftly by,
and she lay sleeping, fondly dreaming upon his
arm, her head half burled in his bosom; her gentle
nose just touching the right hand ruffle of his shirt
bosom; her long hair floating in waves of gold over
her fair white shoulders, and here and there a tress
straying over the voluptuous charms half peeping
out from delicate lace and snowy muslin. He whis
pered fondly, "Laura, dearest;" she answered,
sweetly, " Dearest Will." Just then some one was
heard stumbling up the stairs, and a voice, rather
husky and broken, cried out, as some thundering
raps sounded on "Laura" bed-room door:
"Who the h—l’s been drinking my champagne?"
The terrified wife started up with a scream, and
rushed to the keyhole. She wanted to know who it
was that had come to murder a lonely woman in her
husband’s absence.
" You know d d well who it is," exclaimed the
husband, for he it was. The woman now discreetly
went into hysterics, and inquired what she had done
to merit such treatment, while the man outside gen
tly informed her that unless she unbolted the door
in two seconds he would batter It down. While this
interesting connubial conversation was going on,
the man inside slid into his pantaloons and glided
noiselessly out of the window. He made good his
escape. She smoothed the pillows and then let the
rightful owner of the bed into the room. Laura is
very sad now and thinks champagne bottles do tell
some ugly tales. A Newark doctor has a patient
with a sprained ankle, who swears roundly at the
small boy who threw a peach skin on the sidewalk,
but says nothing about the hole in the seat of fils
pantaloons, made in hastily scaling a fence to escape
the fury of Laura’s husband.
A rosy-cheeked matron of twenty-eight, on Spring
field avenue, who has a family physician who can
keep a secret, played a thing nicely on her husband,
on Friday night. The hard-hearted wretch had re
fused to buy her a breastpin and ear-rings that she
had taken a fancy to. So she went to the market,
and bought a live chicken, and cut its head off in her
bedroom, letting the blood run on the floor. Then
she threw the fowl in the cesspool. She then went
to her room, and laid her head down in the blood,
with her husband’s pistol, with the one ball ex
tracted, lying by her side. The doctor came in at a
suitable time, by appointment, and found the wo
man weltering in blood. He let her alone, and
awaited the coming of the husband. As he entered
the hall, with every feature in his face depicting
horror, the doctor told the man of his wife’s condi
tion. The dupe was about to raise an outcry, when
the doctor silenced him by saying, that she was not
quite dead, and everything depended upon her re
maining quiet. She was placed in bed by the two
men, and recovered with astonishing rapidity. The
man kept mum, for fear of disgrace, but the wife
thought so much of her little trick that she could
not resist the temptation of telling a female friend
how she obtained the pretty jewelry that she now

Jim Coyne and Tom Webb matched their dogs »ne

The fifth game of the championship series, be
tween the Mutuals and Atlantios, was played on the
Union ground, Williamsburgh, yesterday afternoon,
and attracted about five hundred.spectalors to the
ground. After winning two games so handsomely
from the celebrated Boston Red Stockings, it is al
most unnecessary to state that the Mutuals were
warm favorites. Odds of 25 to 8 were freely laid on
them, and odds of 25 to 15 were betted that they
would defeat the Atlantics in two innings. For the
first time this season, the Atlantics had a coat of
"Chicago" whitewash applied to them, the Mutes
playing an uncommonly steady and often a brilliant
game. Three splendid doub:e plays were made by
Pearce and Start, Pearce, Hatfield, and Start, and
Fulmer, Hatfield, and Start; the last was the finest
piece of sharp fielding seen on the Union ground
this season. The Atlantics, also, played a fine game,
and they would have saved themselves the humilia
tion of a " Chicago" had it not been for the stupidity
of Burdock. This was the more astonishing, as
Burdock has shown, from his excellent umpiring,
that he is well acquainted on all points of the game,
and it appeared astonishing that be should have
been caught napping, and in the simplest way, too.
Had it not been for this, the Atlantics were bound to
have made an earned run; instead of which,.Fergu
son was left on third.. It is needless to say that
Fergy was unusually sweet on Burdock, for a few
minutes after. The game opened well for the Mutes,
they sooting three runs in the first inning, and one
in the second; but, after that, no runs were made,
until tne seventh inning, when they again increased
their score by three runs. The game was altogether
a highly creditable one to both nines, and will
doubtless tend to increase the number of spectators
on the Canitoline ground, on Monday, when they
play the next game of their series. The following is
the score:

On Monday last the Bostons visited Philadelphia
toplay the fifth game of their series with the Ath
letic Club. There was a very large attendance, and
the game was finely played up to the eighth inning,
when two bad throws by Mcßride, and bad judgment
on tho part of Malone, allowed the Red Stockings, to
put on two runs and tie the game. Ram immed.ate

drawn. The following is the score:

Leonard’s play at second base wfto worthy of ira
qualified praise, and Harry Wright ought to feel
highly pleased to think he has a man'tn his dee who
can play that important position bO Wil. Sweasy in
his best days never played batter than' Andy did on
Thursday. The following deiMled-description o f the
game will enable cur readers* to 't’orni l accurate
idea of the play on both sides :
First Inning.—G. Wright wen?, to the W;. and of *
ter two strikes and one ball had? been ct&Ad, hit a
bounder to Pearce, and was out at first. Birdsall
followed, and was taken on the' foul fly by Hawks, and
Leonard hit a high one, which Cummings went for,
and took on the foul bouMd. Eagles 1 led off with a
splendid fair foul hit to left field, making iw* first.
Hatfield then made a splendid drive to rigbid field,
which sent Dave to third; but "os the 1 ball wr-a not
well stopped by Schafer, DiWe got bomb, -H&frleld
going to second. Start then drove a beauty toward
right field, but it was finally stopped by Leonard,
and>Joo retired. Bechtel was next, and made a toe
drive to Tight field, bringing Hatfield borne easily.
Hicks then drove one to G. Wright, who fielded it ts»
Leonard, who, with Gould, made the double play r
and the inning closed with the score at 2 to 0.
Seoohd Inning.—McVey led off, and was
by Fulmer on a foul bound. Spalding followed, and
went out on fair fly to McMullen. Gould was next,> .
and reached his first on a slight muff by Fulmer,
but Schafer was beautifully fielded out at first by an'
elegant throw from Fulmer to Start. Pearce began
for the Mutes with a drop hit toward third, finely -
picked up and fielded to first by Schafer. McMullen
followed, and hit a hot one to Leonard, who fielded
him out at first, Cummings then hit a hot bounder
right in front of him, but Spalding captured it splen
didly, and fielded him out at first. Score 2to 0.
Third Inning.—Rogers led off with a long hit to
centre field, which Eggler scoot.ed in on the fly; H.
Wright, followed and was cleverly captured by Hicks
on a foul fly tip; G. Wright then made his base on a
clean hit to centre field, but he was forced out at sec
ond by Birdsall’s drive to Pearce finely fielded to
Hatfield. Fulmer began with a clean hit to centre,
after two strikes and a ball had been called; Dave
Eggler followed with a high foul ball to left, which
Schafer would have taken on the bound, but G.
Wright went for it also and knocked it out oi Sha
fer’s reach, Dave, however, disappeared on the next
ball to G. Wright, who captured him on the fly; Hat
field made his base on a fine hit to left fie id, but
Start and Bechtel were taken on the fly by G. Wright
and Gould respectively. Score 2to 0.
Fourth Inning.—Birdsall led off with a good hit to
Hatfield, and retired at first; Leonard followed with
a warm one to Pearce, and also retired at first; then
McVey made his base on one of his short fair-foul
hits, and Spalding sent him to third on a hit to right
field; but the hope of a run for the Reds was nip
ped in the bud by Gould being captured on the fly
by McMullen. Hicks began with a terrific hot liner
to third, which was magnificently taken by Schafer
on the fly, low down; Pearce followed with a short
bounder to third, which was picked up well and
splendidly thrown by Schafer to Gould; McMullen
then, after being let off by Schafer on a difficult foul
fly, made his base an a clean hit past third, but
Cummings was for the second time put out at first
by Spalding’s fine fielding of the ball to Gould.
Score 2 to 0.
Fifth Inning—Schafer was first to the bat and re
tired on a foul bound to Hicks; Rogers followed with
a high ball to third, and fell a victim to Fulmer on
the fly; and H. Wright was well taken on the flv by
Eggler; Fulmer made a fine hit to right field,’but
Rogers took the ball on the fly; Eggler was then
fielded out finely at first by Schafer; Hatfield fol
lowed with a clean hit to right field; but Start, who
hit at the first ball pitched, was scooped in by H.
Wright on the fly. Score—2 to 0.
. Sixth Inning—Matters now began to look very se
rious for the Bostons, and the question of whether
they might not be sent direct to "Chicago’’ was
mooted. G. Wright led off with a hot grounder to
Hatfield, which the latter fumbled most wretchedly,
and George reached his first in safety; Birdsall fol
lowed with a hot one to Cummings, who fielded the
ball to Hatfield, and George retired; Leonard then
made bis base on a clean hit to centre; but McVey
was finely fielded out at first by Pearce; and Spalding
again tried to bring in a'Red man from third, but
was again disappointed, Eggler taking the ball on the
fly; Bechtel began with a good hit, which was well
fielded by Leonard to Gould; Hicks followed with a
sharp hit to G. Wright and retired at first; and
Pearce made a fine drive to right field; but Leonard '
picked it up in splendid style and fielded him out at
first. This was one of the finest bits of fielding ever
seen at second, and could not have been excelled.
Seventh Inning.—Gould was first, and retired on a
foul bound to Hicks; Schafer was taken care of by
Pearoe on the fly, but Rogers made his base on a fine '
hit to Centre field, and Harry Wright made his base .
on a fair foul hit to third; George Wright then went ?
to the bat amid considerable applause—the recollec
tion of his fine and well timed hit on Saturday being
fresh in the recollection of the spectators. It was
also fresh in the memory of Bechtel, who was deter- '
mined he would not allow the ball to get over his
head this time. A minute or two of terrible sus
pense waa passed by everyone on the ground, till
George got a nice one, and drove it far into the right ■
field. An inch or two higher and he must have ■
again made a home run, as Bechtel took it on the fly
close up to the platform in front of the dressing
room, and was loudly cheered in consequence. ,
McMullen began, and was taken care of on the fly by
H. Wright; Cummings followed, and, after having a •
life given him on a very hot and difficult fly tip by
McVey, made a magnificeu t two-base hit to left centre
field—the only two-base hit made during the game—
and on which, if he nad been at all fleet of foot, he <
could easily have made his third; Fulmer then ’
went out on a foul fly to McVey, and Eggler brought i
Cummings home on his hit to short, which G.
Wright muffed; Dave was forced at second, how
ever, on Hatfield’s hit to G. Wright. Score 3to 0.
So steadily and effectively had Cummings been
pitching, and so well was he supported by the re
mainder of the nine, that it was now considered ai-
Ste Stocking. ;
out in the eighth Inning, odds were laid off I
having nine "duck’s eggs." The uncertainty of the i
game, however, was never more clearly demonstrat- '
ed than in the <
Eighth Inning.—Birdsall led off and was ex
tremely well taken by Fulmer on the foul bound;
T.Annard .th®n drove a terrific hot one straight to
Start, but Joe- cmxiu u -■♦first he picked it
up, however, and a close race ensued
and Leonard for the base, which Joe won. McVey ;
then made his base on one of his favorite fair foul
drops, and Spaulding carried him to second on a
good hit to lelt field; Gould then scooped a low ball
and sent it straight to Pearce, who should have
taken it onjthe fly, Dickie was too excited, however, 1
and he muffed it, allowing the bases to be filled;
Schafer, " the lucky man," as G. Wright called him,
now came to the bat and brought two men in on a
good hit to left field; but Rogers who tried hard
to bring Schafer home was splendidly taken on the
fly in right centre field by Eggler. Hatfield drove
one to Gould and retired at first; Start was taken
care of on the fly by Birdsall, and Bechtel was put
out by McVey on the foul bound.
Ninth Inning This inning was begun in deal
silence, the Reds looking pale, but determined, >
while the Mutes looked somewhat nervous and ex-.
cited, in consequence of Pearce’s muff in the last
inning. H. Wright tried the waiting game, and also the
fair-foul style of hitting; but he had two strikes
quickly called on him, and then he hit a nice one to
Peirce, who muffed it badly. G. Wright then drove ;
a fearfully hot liner (foul) to Start, but it was too hot
to hold, and Joe dropped it: he recovered it on the
bound, however, and George retired. . Birdsall then
hit hard to Pearce, who stopped and fielded the ball
to Hatfield; the latter was too anxious to make the
double play, however, and dropued the ball. Every
one now regarded it as a certainty that the Mutes
would again be defeated; but their plucky little
pitcher, whose iron nerves never seem to fail him,
went on as steadily as before. The least mistake
by him would have lost the game to the Mutes, but '
Leonard hit the ball high toward right field, and ;
Hatfield took it on the fly. It was then feared .
McVey might get one of his favorite drops, but Ful
mer was on the look-out to field the ball to Pearce,
at third, if he did. Mao, however, did not try it, but
laid himself out for a terrific drive to left field. As is
usually the result in such cases when Gummings is
pitching, the ball wont high up in the air, and
Fu’mer scooped it on the fly, amid cheers and shouts
of approbation from every one on the field. Hicks
began with a short high hit to Leonard, and was out.
Pearee was finely fielded out by Schafer, at first, but
McMullen mado his base on a .drop hit; it was of no
use, though, as Cummings went out on the foul fly to
Gould. The following is the score:

Patrolman Patrick McGinley, of the E'eventh Pra
cinct. was brought beiore the Commissioners and
charged by Roundsman Brooks with sitting on the
shaft at a wagoo, at 11h42P. M. of the 6lh inst„ when

roundsman, was drinkingra glass of soda water. Iha
roundsi’ftan ordered him to go on his post, but hla
answer was;. “ Wait untd I drink my soda water.’’
Commissioner Bcsworth. wished to know if there
was a "stick" in the soda water, but the officer does
not drink ‘my liquors.
Daly, in his defense, said that some mon that were
ulayiug billiards quarreled, and he was called in by
tho proprietor to eject thorny which he did, the man
then askingdifm to take a drink. His case was re

station-house, 9:15 P. M., and preferred a charge
ot drunk and. disorderly against her. While tho
sergeant was taking the woman’s “pedigree,” the
officer leaned d6wn on the railing, and a citizen
standing in the office, said: “Sergeant, the officer is
more under the influence of liqpur than the woman."
The sergeant themnoticed for the fii st time that, the
officer did look as 1 though he was intoxicated, and
ordered him to stand up straight- This the officer
could not do, and .he was then ordered to walk across
the floor, but staggered in crossing. The sergeant
then smelt his breach, and feeling satisfied that the
man had been drinking, ordered him to bed and
sent another officer on his post.- Hart denied being
intoxicated, when asked by Commissioner Boa worth
what he had to say to the charge.. Ho then said that
the woman he arrested was very much intoxicated
and disorderly, refusing to go with him to the ata
tion-house, and he bad to almost carry her there,
and felt very much- fatigued when he got there,
which he thought would account for his appearance
at the time. When asked why ho-did not rap for as

was referred to the Board.

and they were on tho table when these officers came
in, and they were merely looking at them.
This statement was corroborated by b)th ihe
officers but the sergeant said that he saw Froeboese
deal out the cards, as though they were playing a
game. Froebroase denied this, and said that, he
merely picked up the cards, and was looking at them;
but Woodward did not touch them. Tne Commis

George W. Whitman, a private watchman and spe
cial deputy -sheriff preferred a complaint against

whom he charges with arresting him without cause.
Mr. Whitman swore that he was attacked, while on
the corner of Eighth avenue and Forty-second street,
by three men, one of whom threatened to shoot him,
and he called on Officer McArdle to arrest this man,
but he arrested him instead. The officer, in his de

stated that Officer Brennan then arrested these two
men for receiving stolen goods, but that they could
prove that the goods were left there by au outside
party who asked permission to do so.
Mr. Ephraim’s brother Louis was next called, and
said that when Officer Brennan went in the store
his brother was waiting on some customers, and
that the officer came to him and asked him for SSO.
Louis sent him to his brother and they went into the
back room, and hearing a scuffle he ran out and
got an officer, as he thought his brother would ba
murdered, and when he returned he found his
brother a prisoner.
Captain Clinchy here asked the last witness what
name he went by, and he said Louis Ephraim, and
that he was only a step-brother of Isaac. The cap
tain here produced the station-house blotter, which
showed that when Louis was arrested in Maroh !aet
that he gave his name as Jacobs, and that both
brothers were held to answer in $1,500 bail.
Offieer Brennan then made the following state
ment: “Ou tho night in question, I was passing
through Grand street, when I met Officer Dyer, who
to’d me that he started to chase a thief, with a bun

any bundle, to look for it. I looked through the
store, but did not find the bundle. I then started to

a piece of wood, and I arrested him, and made a
c targe oi assawt and battery against him, and ha
