There appears to be a rise in the mat
nmonial market among the theatrical profession at pres
ent. The lat st addition to the list ie that of Miss Maud
Granger, whom a dispatch from Appleton, Wis., states
was united in wedlock to R. Germaine, last week. The
young man g ive his real name as Wm. M Baxter, and
his address as New York. He has been with Mlfb Granger
for two seasons. A friend ol both parties, in speaking of
thi matter, stated that he had been given to understand
that the couple were married fully a month ago. About

“Antoinette Rigaud,” the Paris and
London success, was pres* nled at the Boston Museum,
on lasi Monday night, before a large audience. The play
is a d pariure from the usual line of productions at this
theatre- and much interest has bean exciied as to the ef
fect on a tyuleal Boston audience. “ Antoinette Rigaua”
is Parisian in every sense, and ia said to be bright, crisp
and entertaining throughout. Mr. Vand<Tfelt and Miss
Isabella Evesson appealed in the leading parts, the latter
in the title role of the play, a part the opposite extreme

Miss Augusta Van Doren, who is pre
paring to star m a now comedy called “Charlotte Russe,”
is not a novice. At the commencement ol her career >ho
b<cirae acquainted with John McCullough and Bartley
Campbell, who encouraged her in her chosen profession,
and she became a member of one of the best stock com
paniea this country can boast. Among tier w armest friends
were John G. Whittier, our national poet; Miss Nora
Berry and Mrs. J. R. Vencint, of the Boston Museum, all
of whom lent the young actress a helping hand.
A Boston newspaper says that once an
American lad.' visited Sarah Bernhardt, and was permit
ted to inspect her apartments. In Sarah's bedroom stood
the skeleton so often mentioned, and when she saw it the
American drew back in terror. The actress thereupon
saying that. “he was alive,” threw her arms about it and i
kissed the grizzly skull. ‘•There, you see, he is con
•Scious.” Sh? exclaimed. “Yes,” retorted the visiter,
‘he is even bl n-hing for you.” Sarah's very veimilion i
lips had left two red spots on the bony cheek.

A Pleasant Saloon. —One of the most
pleasant down-town saloons of this city is that of
Mr. John P. Senninger, No. 2 Murray street. The
decorations are peculiarly grateful to the eye. They (
are handsome, but are not gaudy. Better than this,
however, is the fact that the drinks with which Mr. 1
Senninger supplies his customers are all of the very
best. He sells home-made and imported lager
beers, pure and old whiskies, brandies and gins,
wines of the most approved vintages, and cigars of
the best manufacture. Mr. Senninger has become
as popular at No. 2 Murray street m he was at his
former places of business.

If John's hat had been on he might Lave passed
for a negro, but his long, straight hair, pug nose,
and Celtic potato trap, made him the puzzle. The
boys, on Friday night, had got hold of Jonn, who
lives at No. 442 West Thirty-first street, near his
own door, besmeared his face with black lead, and
rubbed it in so well that if he had looked at himself
in the glass he would have doubted his identity.
“He is just down from the Island,” said the offi

Pauline David lives at No. 88 First avodK 9 - Mas
ter Wm. J. Connor at No. 362 Broome street.
Two weeks ago Paulino had her husband up i n
Court on the charge of assaulting her, and he was
sent to prison in default of $25, which meant twen
ty-five days in the kitchen of .the Tombs.
On the 23d of February, Pauline says she went to
Brooklyn on business. She says she is a dress
maker. When she left the house in Brooklyn she
found she had but one cent in her pocket, and that
she had to foot it over the bridge. Her nearest route
home, when she got to Park Row, would have been
up old Chatham street, and up the Eowery. to
get to First avenue. But she struck through Centre
street, just to get a glimpse at the Tombs, whore
her husband lay in the prison cell.
After gazing at the Egyptian edifice, reflecting for
a few minutes, she meandered up Centre and struck
into Broome street. When in front of No, 362, she
was suddenly seized by two men. One stuffed a
handkerchief in her mouth and the other dragged
her in the hall, when she kicked and screamed. This
brought officer Monahan, and he arrested Master
Connor. She showed her torn dross to prove her
angelio struggle.
“There were no two mon in this case, there was
but one, and lam the oue,” said Billy. “I was
going down tho Bowery, she was coming up. She
smiled, I smiled. I stopped, she stopped. ‘Where
are you going?' sho said. I said, ‘home.’ ‘Can't I
go with you?’ I said, ‘Yes.’ ‘l’m thirsty/ sho said.
‘AU right/ said I, ‘I can go a beer.’ At Rivington
and the Bowery we stepped in, she had a beer and I
had an old ale. We then talked business. 8h ■ sug
gested a house in Chrystle street, then another in 1
Delancey street. I objected. I was short of funds
and suggested that we could save that by going to
my furnished room in Broome street. After the
financial part was settled, we went to No. 362
Broome street. I went through tho liquor saloon,
opened the front door, and let her up stairs to my
furnished room.
” Well, she went down stairs to go home, but
when she got to the door it was a spring lock that
she didn’t know how to open. This brought the
landlady, and thinking her a sneak thief, she called
• police.' That brought me down and she began to
yell • police/louder than the landlady, and when
he came she made this infernal charge against me
and I was locked up.”
“What about her torn clothing?” asked the
“ Nobody saw it torn then,” said Maeter Connor.
“ She did that for effect since I was locked up.”
Pauline was asked why her husband beat her; she
eaid he had accused her of being in a disreputable
house. It wasn’t so, and her husband struck her. 1
Her husband was called from the Tombs and was
put on the stand.
“Do you recollect ?” asked Justice Kilbreth,
“ when your wife . made a charge against you ia
thia court ?”
Ho gave the date.
“ You were thou sworn, apd B»id your wife had
been in a disreputable house. What rewoa did you
have to make that accusation ?”
“ I had no reason,” said Mr. David.
“ Then you were willing to malign your wife’s
character without any reason ?”
“ Well, I had no reason, I did it for spite.”
The husband was told to step down. The alleged
outrage was said to have been committed at nine
o’clock at night, at a point in Broome street which
is thronged at that time.
After a long deliberation, Justice Kilbreth said 1
there were some doubts in the case. The defendant
told one story, complainant another, and they
couldn’t undertake to place the truth.
Master Connor was acquitted. Tho case is a
warning to ethers who, for cheap reasons, may
undertake to use their furnished room for other
than legitimate purposes.

Young; Criminals, 1
OUT. |
While the old and well known criminale are pass
ing away, many by death, some to end their days in ;
prison, and a few, very few have reformed, a large
army of youngsters are growing up to fill the
places made vacant. This is nowhere seen so per- <
ceptible as at the trials at Special Sessions. Of late,
mere children thieves have been noticeably on the
increase. Nor do these youngsters steal after the (
manner of children, but men. They can sneak into
a store, creep behind the counter as softly as a cat
and tap the till, pick a lock, jimmy a door, clean a
wash from a roof and throw it to another young- e
ster In the street, with a ennning and skill that be.
token what may be expected of these criminals (
when fully developed. 1
This juvenile increase may be partly attributed to <
the parents.
Martin Flanagan, a boy, undertook to carry off a
tub of butter nearly as heavy as himself. Ha took
it out of the wagon as it was driving through the
street. It was so cleverly taken, that Adolph
Meyer, the driver, did not see the tub lifted out by ,
the youngster. Officer Donohue saw the boy carry,
ing the tub in Weet Tenth street. Knowing it must
have been stolen, he arrested him.
Mr. Jenkins reported that the boy had frequently
been arrested for larceny; it might be said he had ,
no home; his parents were addicted to liquor.
He was sent to the penitentiary for six months.
Patrick Scanlan and Joseph Downes, two very
young boys, stole four hats from a show case that
was padlocked. The father of Scanlan, the smallest
of the two. said, since hie wife died, the boy had
been under the charge of an aunt.
“ But he hasn’t been to school since August,” said
the Court.
••I’ll send him now,” aaid the father,
w ••How old is he 1”
•• Well, I can’t say whether it is 11 or 12/‘
“ What is ho, a bright or dull boy ?”
“Hs is a good enough boy.”
“ Does he learn at school ?*'
golly, I think he is able to write his name,
that is all.”
“Does he understand the difference of right and
wrong?” y ,
“Ob, certainly.”
“Does he understand it to be wrong to steal ?”
The father of Downes was called up.
••You drink a good deal ?” said the Court.
“A little.”
“ And the mother, too, drinks ?”
They were sent to the House of Refuge.
John Keller, a boy, Was charged with stealing a
satchel that contained $8 in property. It was at
the window of the residence. A boy with Keller
raised the window and snatched the satchel. Mr.
Downing saw the theft, ran out, and after a chase,
arrested the boy.
Officer Cuff said the boy had no home; he went
around in tho daytime stealing.
He was sent to the Refuge.

Thomas Blake and Patrick Griffiu are stablemen.
Tom went into the stable where Pat was at work;
Pat said Tom sat down and began to abuse him by
calling him an Aiderman—one of the boodlers.
When Pat objected to being called an Aiderman,
Tom made another dirty remark about him and
tried to damage his character. Then Tom tried to
pitch him out of the window, when Pat asked him
the reason why he slurred his character. Tom im
mediately damaged one of his eyes.
Tom said he went in the stable and took a seat on
the bench. Pat's nickname was “the Alderman.”
When he sat down ha merely said, in a joking way,
“Aiderman, what was your share in that Broadway
boodle business?” Pat said: “You son of a gun,”
, and then hit him on the jaw.
Francis Jennings said Pat came into ths harness
• room from the stable and was very noisy and took
part in the conversation, and wanted to have it all
> his own way. The qunstion came up about
lawyers. Pat said he was as good as those
spoken of. Tom said, “ Mr. Aiderman, I

Pat said, •• What do you moan by calling me

There were two charges against barkeeper Dauiel
McCarthy—one, the larceny of five dollars, and the
other a violation of the Excise law. Ho pleaded
guilty to violating the Excise law. To the charge
of larcony ho pleaded not guilty.
Edward Carry, a young man, the complainant,
said he went to defendant’s place, corner of Wooster
and Prince streets, for a pitcher of beer. It was
seven cents. He gave McCarthy a five'dollar bill.
McCarthy went to the drawer and said he hadn’t
the change, and sent out a man to get it. The man
returned twenty minutes after, and said he couldn't
got change. A woman who had just come in said
she would get it. The woman came back in about
ten minutes without the ohange, and said she came
near being arrested. A bill, not the bill he gave,
but a counterfeit, was given. Curry looked at it,
and said that was not his bill. McCarthy took him
by the arm and put him out of tho door. Curry
couldn’t see all that passed inside, as he stood in ■
the family entrance box.
De'endant admitted getting a five-dollar bill from
complainant, and banded it to a man in the store to

She came back and said tho bill was bad, and came
near getting arrested. She handed me the bill and
I handed it back to complainant."
“ Could you tell that she gave you back the bill
you gave her ?”
•• No. I believe I gave her a good bill. When I
gave the bill to the man or woman, I did not be

gave the bill to ?” asked the Court.
“ Yes, Joseph Murray, he cleaned up around.”

Pietro Ferraro, an Italian, under the impression
that he could run a basement “hotel” as he pleased,
was charged with keeping a badly ventilated lodg
ing-house, in violation of the health law.
Officer Kennedy, of the Health Department, said
he visited the premises, No. 67 Mulberry street
last on February 18th, but was there on several
occasions. He found twelve beds. Defendant's
permit to keep a lodging-house had been revoked.
“What sort of a place was this i , ' asked counsel.
“It was dark, without ventilation and there was a
stove in the room, where they cooked. The floor
was dirty and the place stanched. Beside these
beds, the place was used as a sort of restaurant.
One, two and three slept in a bed. They paid from
five to ten cents for a night's lodging.
When Pietro's license was revoked, the accused
said he transferred the lodging department to
Signor Stefano and kept the restaurant department.
Tho lodging-house and the restaurant were run
separately. The signor said be had been five years
in the country and didn't know English, not a

To the Editor of Ike New York Dispatch :
Your Issue of the 6th of March contained an ac
count of my appearance at the Jefferson Market

against me by one John J. Kelly, an employee of
Mr. Sheppard, who formerly kept a gambling house
at Thirty-first street and Broadway, over Fox's old
liquor store, now proprietor of the White Elephant,

lars. lam not now or never have been in any way
conected with any bunco, confidence game, gam

or unlawfully beating any man out of his money.
All of which I can prove'by the most creditable and
respectable witnesses in this city. I have always
followed a legitimate business and earned my liv
ing honestly, and can show a rocCrd that will com
pare favorably with any man of my opportunities
and age in this city. I may be permitted to say that
I am no co ward, and I can take my .part when calle d
upon. Some three years ago the fact was recorded
in the city papers that I saved the lives of two serv
antgirls at the fire, No. 138 West Twenty-third street,
where I was boarding.
Under the circumstances, and as there was a Ven
omous and vindictive enmity displayed against me
by this man Kelly, I think it no more than just aud
right that the Dispatch should contradict that part
of the report affecting my character that I have re
ferred to. I am yours, respectfully,

Gad Lddgb, No 11, 1. O. F. S., or
Israel.—Ono of the most enjoyable receptions that
occurred this season took place at Irving Hall, on
last Thursday evening, 10th inst., under the aus
pices of Gad Lodge.
It was a masquerade, and many fine costumes
were on the floor. The members themselves were
arrayed in gorgeous uniforms of Knights of the
Sixteenth Century and Spanish princes, and were
under the command of Mr. Joseph Unger, as Com
mander; Wm. Kahn, Secretary, and Isaac Rosenthal,
Treasurer. They all marched in together, and a
very creditable drill took place, marching in stars,
rings, triangles, etc., which added greatly to the
success of the affair.
Mr. Nat. Stern assisted Mr. Mayer Goldberg as
floor manager, while Mr. Herman Wolf presided
over the reception committee, and Mayer Berliner
had charge of the general arrangements.
The costumes came mostly from the atelier of F.
Vogelin, and reflected credit upon the maker, as
well as upon the wearers. Among them were many
pretty faces, seven or eight young and pretty maids
marched together as vivandieres. They were Misses
Jenny and Annie Sha’.kenstein, Miss Millie Munch,
Miss Sarah Schiff, Miss BSoch, and officered by pret
ty Mrs. Jenny Schiff. Miss Katie Sperber wore a
very becoming Swiss peasant costume; Miss Nellie
Hirsoh and Miss Emma Raab acted as fire patrol;
Misses Minnie and Kate Unger wore strikingly
handsome dresses; Messrs. Oppenheimer and Good
man were busily engaged with Misses Sadie Ja
cobs and Ella Goldberg; a very pretty dress was
that of Mrs. Loewenstein as Bon-Bon, pink satin,
gold crown, profusely covered with stars, and gol
den cornucopias as ear-rings, and in her hand a large
cornucopia filled with candies, which were freely
offered to the dancers: Miss Annie Stein, tall and
graceful, sported as a jockey; Misses M. Manheimer,
Belle Wallach, H. Frankie, Rose Kahn and Mrs.
Moses Gerstner also attracted attention, partly by
their handsome dresses, but more by their graceful
dancing and personal charms. All the toilets were
rich, costly and elegant, and though there were a
i great variety of costumes, there were none “too
■ low on top or too h'gh at the bottom. ’ While there
was great enjoyment and fun, it was coupled with
the strictest propriety and decorum, all of which re
• fleets great credit upon Gad Lodge and its officers.
Among evoutog KW Mr, Moahol-
mer and wife, Mr. Michel and family, Mt. Beckwith,
Mr, Alex. Hirsch, Mr. Berger and many others.
Tho affair, we were informed, was financially a
success. It certainly was so from a social point of
p view, and when Gad Lodge again assembles to on
■ joy a season of sport and fun, please count upon us

*Tlic Yaolit Race.
Tho morning of the day for the start of the groat
yacht race broke cold and clear. Tho wind was
blow'iug half a gale from the Northwest, and it
looked very much as though it would hold for some
time. Few people were out in tho early morning
hours at Bay Ridge, tho biting cold keeping them
in doors. Very few vessels were to be seen in the
bay, and the water was covered with white caps,
'lhe few coasting vessels, which every little while
\ ent down the bay. were tn»nlng under lower sails
on\ v « ftnd some'of these wrote triple roofed. There
was prospect that the yachts would start
under little sa& ahd at race-borSe speed. Old
salts in th,® neighborhood of Owl’s Head were of the
opinion thdt tho wind would hold for a 1 day or two,
jja’d that theK» a probability of frho yachts
nWking the passxge in loss’time than it Bar been
mtJde before, thus establishing a new recortL
TOb wiud outside jvas a little mote oasterfy. than
in the*bay, and some men expreesed feats ihntt it
might MuuVoff to the l>st, but there was nd efyfl'of
this up ft'tfight.
At clevffspo'clock. two Hours from thd start, neltb-’.
er the “Doubtless ” nor tho ‘•Coronet " had niad’j
their appearance at the starting-point, and the few
watchers around the neighborhood were getting
anxious, fearing that no start would be made until
late. At ten minutes past eleven the •• Coronet/'
which had been lying off Tompkinsville, began to
ho st her mainsail, and it was plain that prepara
tions were making for a start. It was evidently the
intention of Captain Crosby to start with whole sails
in spite of the heavy wind. Tho “Dauntless" was
then seen coming down the bay like a race-horse,
with mainsail, foresails, jib, and staysails, and with
the jib topsail up in stops. There was not a reef in
her. tail, and she was a pretty sight. Her balloon
jib topsail was laid out in gaskets, and it looked as
if Captain was going to risk all the sail tho
boat could carry wThe square sail yard was in posi
tion, and she looked every inch a racer.
Comment was made at what was thought a good
deal of risk on tho part of the captain in carrying so
much sail with such a wind. Tho " Coronet ” soon
got in readiness and began running around the bay.
The excursion boats and tugs wore beginning to
arrive and tho “ Meteor ” was on her way to the
starting point. At about half-past eleven the
“Dauntless" broke out her jib topsail and it
seemed to add to her speed very materially and sho
went through the water at a magnificent rate of
speed. The number of sightsesrs along the shores
at this time was gradually Increasing.
At twelve o’clock the yachts were still sailing
about near tho starting point. The “Coronet’’
had not yet hoisted her foresail, but was getting
thro.ugh the water at a good rate of. speed. Tho
. wind was st ill blowing hard and a better day for the
start could not have been selected. Very few boats
were at Owl’s Head at that time, and the “ Lucken
back ” had not put in an appearance. There were
a few coasters going down the bay, and with reefed
sails they were making good speed.
Snowballs were making their appearance in the
sky, and it began to look as if there would be some
very dirty weather for tho yachts before they had
been long on their journey. The “ Dauntless ”
looked to be much higher forward than the “ Coro
net," and she will probably be the dryost boat in a
storm. The opinion was that the yachtsmen will
have a much harder trip than they expect. Old
yacht captains began to make their appearance at
Owl's Hoad, and discussion on the merits of the
boats was rife. The ••Dauntless” had made the
most champions, aud the idea seemed to be that on
a heading wind only could the “ Coronet” keep up
with her rival. The “Dauntless" certainly looked
a faster boat, and her sails seemed to be larger than
those of the “ Coronet," as she passed Owl’s Head,
pointing up the bay, with all lower sails sot, and
heeling over until her lee rail was nearly at the wa
ter’s edge. The sight was beautiful. At half-past
twelve the boats were near the starting point, and a
very few tugs were with them.
No excursion boats except the one from the Bat
tery were to be seen, and on the shores the specta
tors were few. A good deal of difference between
the start of this race and the “Mayflower-Galatea"
races. It was bitter cold on the Banks and the wind
was howling a genuine March gale, but just the
weather to test the quality of the boats to the full,
est extent.
The •• Coronet’s ” topsails were loosened and
the “Dauntless” soon followed suit. It began to
look as if both boats would carry all tho sail they
had as they crossed tho line, but that before Sandy
Hook was reached the sails up aloft would have to
corho down or would be carried away. It was evi
dently the intention of the captains of the boats to
make the start as pretty a one as possible.
Tho water by this time was lumpy and almost
one mass of white, and instead of decreasing, the
wind seemed to be steadily increasing in force.
The “ Luckenbach” had come down the bay and
was following the boats about. The other tugs
were crowded with passengers. The preparatory
signal was given promptly at 1 o'clock and the
boats went about for the starting line. At 1:10
o’clock the starting signal was given and they were
over the lino at 1:14, with the “Coronet" in the
lead, the “Dauntless” following about five minutes
behind. Every sail was set on both boats. Tho
• ‘Coronet” got off in the lead, with every sail set.
The big square sail was drawing beautifully and not
a wrinkle was to be seen in any of the other sails.
The “Dauntless” was five minutes behind iu
starting, aud as she crossed with nearly all sail set
the sight was glorious. The masses of canvas
skimmed over the water at a speed which gave the
tugs and steamers difficulty to keep up with them.
There were about forty steam*vessels of all kinds
following the boats. Minute by minute the “Daunt
less” gained on her rival, and at 1:30 the boats were
off Upper Hospital Island, aud there appeared to be
less than three minutes difference between them.
The run down tho bay was before the wiud, and as
that is the strongest sailing point of the “Coronet,”
there seemed to be little hope for her, as the
“Dauntless” was evidently outsailing her.
The start was seen from the shore by great num
bers of people, the preceding half hour having
added to the crowd very much. Carriages were
stringing along tho shore road, and many ladies
were out to watch the sight.
The •• Dauntless” was a great favorite among the
people, and her rapid gain on the “Coronet” was
the cause of great pleasure. As the yackts went out
of sight they seemed to be on nearly even terms,
and Sandy Ho Ok was only a short distance away
from them.
The “Coronet" cleared the bar, passing the Fair,
way Buoy at 2:15;3Q; the “ Dauntless” at 2:17:30-
The yachts, when outside the bar, both took in their
squaresails at 2:24.
2:40 P. M.—Tho judges’ boat has just left the
yachts north of Sandy Hook Lightship, aud is com
ing back. The yachts are keeping their positions.
The “Coronet" still leading.
2:45 P. M.—The yachts are now northeast of Sandy
Hook Lightship. The “Coronet” is apparently in.
creasing her lead.

About two o’clock Saturday morning, while Offi
cer Sands, of the Eldridge street station, was in tho
Bowery, near Grand street, in citizen’s dress, he ob
served four men following Emil Serem, of No. 86
Park Row. Suspecting their design, ho followed
them some distance, and saw one man push against
Serem. and immediately afterward he saw Berem’s
watch-chain dangling from his vest pocket.
The officer collared the thief, but the latter stub
bornly resisted, although Sands showed his shield.
The confederates of the prisoner closed about the
officer, and the situation was beginning to look sc*.
rious. The prisoner, a powerful fellow, drew out a
five-chambered revolver and discharged one barrel
at the officer, aud the bullet glanced off one of the.
large buttons on the breast of bis coat.
The officer disarmed his assailant, and was in tfe»
act of-producing his own revolver, when two other
policemen came to his assistance.
The confederates of the prisoner ran away, and
the prisoner gave the name of Edward McDonnell,
tweniy.seven years old, of No. 32 Madjson street.
He was recognized as an old offender who had
served a term in State Prison.
Saturday, in the Essex Market oourt, Justice
Murray, after hearing the testimony in the esse,
expressed some surprise at the moderation of the
officer iu not even using bis club. The revolver
used by McDonnell was produced, still loaded in
four chambers. It was a form,! iable weapon. Jus.

other boys took leading parts, commander Benton
was absent on account of sickness and this fact was
the only drawback-tO’&he evening's enjoyment.
Wm. D. Kennedy Poet, of this city, of wbichCom
rade John C. Limbeck* is the popular Commander,
had an exceedingly pleasant time at the last en
campment, held st headquarters, on the evening of
Feb. 23. A handsomely named picture of the Bat
tle of Gettysburg, was presented to the p st by 8.
V. Win. J. Kent, the gift being accepted for the
post by Gen. W. D. Whipple, of Governor's Island.
Ihe gift was the more highly appreciated by the
veterans from the fact that they participated in the
scenes illustrated by the picture. The gift only adds
one more fraternal action to the score of Comrade
Kent, who is universally beloved and respected by
hia comrades for his many acts of kindness.
On March Bth the post assembled in pursuance to
a special order of Commander Limbeck, and the oc
eas ion was announced to boa visit to the Veterans
of the Fifth N-.Y. Vole. (Duryee Zouaves), many of
whose members belong to Kennedy POst. On ar
riving at the headquarters of the association. Presi
dent James B. Fiske, of the latter body, was pre
sented with.an elegant gold badge. Thanks were
returned in a heartfelt manner by Comrade Fiske,
who said that he had simply poriormed his duty,
but nevertheless felt thoroughly grateful for the
compliment paid him by his fellow-soldiers. Re
freshments followed, and toasts, recitations, songs
and speeches were the order ot the evening.
The Veterans of the Eleventh Regiment held a
masquerade bail at the Germania Asst-mb)y Rooms
last Tuesday evening. The hall was filled with the
ni.-mbtra o; the association and their friends, and a
highly enjoyable evening was passed. Among the
well-known laces seen on the floor were those of
Col. Stewart, of the Eleventh, with many of his staff
and line officers; Lieut.-Col. Sussman, Captain Gun
ther, ex. Assemblyman Niglutsch, Commander Levy,
of Steinwohr I’ost; Past Commanders Schmidling,
E. J. Rapp and Jubitz; Captains Hartman and Hotz;
Adjutant Geo. Brickmaun, and many others equally
well-known; The management of the ball was in
able hands, and the result reflected great credit up
on all concerned.
Comrade E. F. Jennings, of Naval Post, writes the
Dispatch that the bluejackets are bowling along in
fine shape with everything drawing well, and that
the prospect for a successful cruise during the
present year is excellent. Ha adds: “Our new
skipper has found out the best tack our ship sails
on, and will bring her back to port with a full
cargo. Prof. Robert Edwards, Past Chaplain of the
post, who served under Farragut, has kindly volun
teered to deliver bis famous lecture, entitled
* Around the World in Two Hours.’ at Chickering
Ha I, on the evening of April 4. The proceeds will
go to the relief fund ot the post, which has been
heavily drawn upon of late. The musical portion
of the entertainment will be first-class, and we in
tend to show our friends some of tue material we
have In our forecastle. All of the shellbacks are
stripped to the waist working for our Memorial
Day services, aud we think it sate to say that our
programme this year will secure us the admiration
of the department.
“ If not out of place, I would like to suggest a
plan which I think would raise considerable money
tor the Bureau of Employment and Relief, at Room
No. 4, City Hall. The battle of Gettysburg occurred
on the Ist, 2d and 3d of July, 1863. Why not have a
grand picnic on those days during the coming Sum
mer-one day for the army, one for the navy, and
one for tiie general public? If the entire depart
ment would take hold of the affair and pull to
gether, it would be an immense success if held in
this city or vicinity, and would undoubtedly result
in greatly augmenting the relief fund.”
A meeting of ladies to organize the Lincoln Cir
cle, composed of the lady friends of the G. A. R. in
Jersey City, was held at No. 340 Third street, at two
o’clock last Wednesday afternoon. The following
officers were elected: Mrs. Fitzhenry, President;
Mrs. Rogers and Mrs. Haase, Vice Presidents; Mrs.
Graham, Chaplain; Mrs. Stieh, Treasurer; Mrs. E.
D. Smith, Secretary; Mrs. Langdon, Conductress:
Miss Langdon, Guard; Mesdames liege, Meyers and
Lowenstein, Council of Administration. Miss Elia
Hatfield performed the duties of acting secretary in
a manner that earned her the deserved praise of all
The ceremony of installing the officers was con
ducted in a most impressive way, after which brief
addresses were made by Comrades Smith, of Kim
ball Post, ot New York city; J. H. Walker, of Rankin
Post, Brooklyn; Armstrong and Haase, of Wilson
Post, and Fitzhenry, of Zabriskio Post, Jersey City,
aud others.
Among those present were Comrade Van Varick
and wife, of Hoboken; Mrs. Emily Meyer, Mrs.
Kuott and Mrs. Woodland, of Kearney Circle; Mrs.
K. Campbell, Mrs. Harden, Mrs. Stevens, Mrs. Hut
man, Mrs. Murtha, Mrs. Henry and a committee
from Zabriskie Circle, of Union Hill. A delegation

W. Fitzhenry, Jr., Thomas Conit, J. R. Conklin and
W. Lowenstein. Thera was also a large number oi
visiting guests from the G. A. R., Woman’s Relief
Corps and other bodies. Everything passed off in
the happiest possible manner, and the visitors took
their departure with regret.
The objects of the cirole are to assist comrades of
the Grand Army in their fraternal and charitable
labors, and to aid the posta in their undertakings
whenever and wherever a woman’s assistance is
needed. The circles bid fair at present to rival the
Woman’s Relief Corps in this good work.
The regular encampment of Ihos. 8. Dakin Post,
of Brooklyn, held last Tuesday evening, will long
remain a bright spot in the annals of the post. On
that evening occurred the reception tendered tp the
members of Devin Post, ot the same city. Letters
| of regret were recived from Gen. Horatio C. King
and Col. B. F. Gott, who were attending the Logan
Memorial services at the Academy of Music. Com
mander Rockwell, assisted by Commander H. B.
Davie, of Mansfield Post.’ mustered in a recrUit
previous to the arrival of the guests of the evening.
Then a recess was taken while a committee, headed
by the flute aud drum corps, wont forth on the
pleasant mission of escorting Devin Post to the en
campment. Upon the arrival of the guests they
were formally welcomed by Commander Rockwell,
and a fitting response was made by Commander
Cowan, of Devin Post. Junior Vice Department
Commander C. Hull Grant was called for, and made
a rousing speech, aud was followed by General E. B.
Barnum who, in his usual felicitous style, kept the
veterans in the best of humor. Addresses were also
made by Commander Davis, of Mansfield Post;
Past Commander Baldwin, and Comrade Pat Hays.
After the .close of the encampment the invited
guests were escorted to a lower hall, where an old
fashioned camp-fire awaitbd them... The veterans
did ample justice to plentiful rations of bean soup,
pork and beaus, hard tack and coffee, and then
lighting their pipes, listened to some excellent mu
sical selections rendered by the flute and drum
corps. Master Willie Sullivan gave some recita
tions, which were loudly applauded. Comrade
Hardy was. called for, and responded in a witty
speech. He thanked the comrades of Dakin Post
for the fraternal reception they had extended to
Devin Post, and promised that the hospitality,
should be reciprocated in the near future.
The evening was brought to a close by a ringing,
speech made by Chaplain Riley,.of Devin Post, afteu
which the visitors started upon their homeward
march. Many well-known comrades took part in
the evening’s enjoyment, anjpng them being, in ad
dition, to those already mentioned, Past

The following letter,explains itself:
To the Editor of the New York Di snatch. :
‘•Once more the opportunity presents itself to
the honorably discharged soldiers and,sailors of the
late war to unite for the purpose of again pressing
their just claims, through the agency of their repre
sentatives in ths next Congress, and demanding the
speedy passage at’the service ponsion bill. The
success of thia measure depends largely on the ac
tivity displayed by the Grand Asmy posts, which
should be ready to take up the matter unitedly, and
with a determination to enforce by legal methods
the just claims of the men who upheld liberty and
union on many a well-fought field.
“ Wtyen Congress next assembles there will be
many naw faces on the floor of the House, apd it re
mains to be seen whether the latest Congressional
recruits will show any signs of the pauperized views,
pjith which some of their predecessors were inocu
lated. To better guard our interests in the coming
struggle, the posts should taka up this measure
and arouse comrades to the necessity of hearty and
united action.
•<To facilitate this good work, I would suggest
that a meeting of the commanders of the posts in
this city be cal ed at an early day, and in addition,
let each post send delegates to this meeting who
1 jLa l be fully in trusted as to the wishes of the post
i they rep’re.-ept, and deylge the best aud most
. ff-ctual method Of insuring the ultimate success of

measure and become the pioneer in the contest foi
the rights of veterans.
