“DANDY DICK.”
Mr. Daly inaugurated the ninth season of his
management of his theatre in the presence of a
great audience on last Wednesday evening, by the
production for the first time in this country of A.
TV. Pinero's comedy of •• Dandy Dick.” The leading
members of his company were included in the cast,
and as they appeared upon the scene in the first act
they were individually welcomed by such hearty
recognition as an audience only gives to those
Whom it holds in the kindliest remembrance.
Concerning “Dandy Dick,” Mr. John Carboy has
Written in another place; of the representation of
the cast it is only necessary to mention that Mr.
Charles Fisher, as the Dean, looked the char
ter as designed by the author; Mr. George Clarke
was hearty, assertive and jocund (as Tristam Mar
don; Mr. James Lewis, in the inferior character of
B’.ore, the butler, was as nearly the senile, loqua-
Clous servant as could be desired. Miss Ada Rehan
gave life, spirit, and something of grace to the char
acter of the feminine turfite, Georgiana Tidman,
and Miss Virginia Dreher and Miss Effie Shannon,
fespectively as Salome and Sheba, were mildly ef
fective.
“Dandy Dick” will be continued during the
present week.
“ THE LEATHER PATCH.”*
Ah, there, Jeremiah McCarthy I Is it there you
ere once again-as welcome as the flowers that
bloom in the Spring, tra la. Mr. Edward Harrigan,
not only you but your entire dramatic family—at
.your home—the Park Theatre. Hilarious Johnny
Wild, effervescent Dan. Colyer, quaint Harry
Fisher, the unfading Annie Yeamans, saucy and
pretty Amy Lee, and all the rest of them—here
•they are for the season, with never a break in the
jranks.
To-morrow evening be it then—and everybody
that is anybody who does not wish to be regarded
as nobody will be present as an integral of the
crowded audience which will be present and be de
lighted with the revival of the old-time local com*
®dy, “ The Leather Patch.”
It is only Harrigan who could write such a tran
script of local life and character, and it is only a
Harrigan who could have gathered—and season
niter season kept compact—a company so perfectly
fitted and so apt in the training to represent the
'typical characters Harrigan has drawn from life,
iBo, then, all hall and welcome to Edward Harrigan
jjmd his confreres.
During the Summer the theatre has been thorough
ly renovated, redecorated and newly carpeted, and
the “ standing room only ” sign is ready for bus
iness.
“ HELD BY THE ENEMY.”
Manager Josh Hart aunounces for to-morrow
Evening the commencement of the regular dra
•inatic season of his Theatre Comique (Harlem). His
engagements of combinations and stars that are to
Appear in succession until next May, are all made,
and no doubt this pretty little theatre will receive a
tfull measure of recognition from the playgoing resi
dents of Harlem.
The inaugural attraction will be Mr. William
XHllette’s successful drama of “Held by the Ene
inv”—in which the author will repeat his effective
-Impersonation of the war correspondent. Among
bthers in the cast are Misses Mary Mills and Minnie
t)ufree, Mr. S. 8. Black and others.
The usual matinees will be given on Wednesday
Jtnd Saturday.
“THE GREAT PINK PEARL.”
In three weeks “The Great Pink Pearl” will be
Withdrawn from the Lyceum Theatre, to make way
lor the opening of the regular theatrical season of
the new company, most of whom have not yet ap
peared.
“The Wife” is the opening play, a new one, by
£3elasco and De Mllle, and beside three or four of
|he company now playing, it will number also the
bames of Georgia Cayvan, Louise Dillon, Mrs.
Vhiffen, Mrs. Walcot, Miss Groly, Henry Miller,
kelson Wheatcroft, Charles Walcot, Chas. Dickson
and W. Bellows.
. The opening night of “ The Wife” has been fixed
for Tuesday, November Ist.
“THE MARQUIS.
So successfully does this operetta continue run
ining at the Casino, that Manager Aronson is already
Xnakipg preparations for the celebration of a souve
nir night of the operetta in November. A prome
nade concert is to follow the performance. The
souvenir which is to be presented as a memento of
the occasion is to be in the shape of a miniature
knapsack.
The rolled blanket is to contain the music of the
waltz trio in act 2, New verses have been recently
added to the “ballet song” and to Briolet’s comical
ditty, “We take ’em in.”
It is a strange coincidence that there has been but
ihe slightest difference between the receipts of the
Hist three weeks of the “Marquis” and “Erminie.”
DOCKSTADER’S.
Dockstader’s presents three new songs this week :
••Fold those Little Hands in Prayer,” “The Bedouin
Love Song,” and “Sweet Days of Old,” sung by
Messrs. Jose, Frillman and R-jiger respectively.
There will be a new sketch, “ Cleveland’s Visit to
the West,” an overture and chorus from “Ruddi
gore,” while the “Volunteer vs. Thistle,” the pe
rennial “Fall of New Babylon,” “Tootsie Wootsie,”
fend the “Caricature Song” will be continued.
Theatre parties are beginning to be in vogue at
Dockstader’s, as the regular patrons of the house
return irom the mountains and seaside, and it is a
Very poor night when half a dozen celebrities can
not be found at the cozy minstrel hall, enjoying
the jokes about others, and possibly about them
selves.
THE GRAND INDUSTRIAL FAIR.
The'Ainerican Institute Fair is now open at Second
4ind Third avenues, between Sixty-third and Sixty
fourth streets. The present exhibition is one of the
inost perfect and extensive that this association has
©ver given to the public. There are novel inven
tions, a great electrical exhibition, machinery in
jnotion, and the wondrous products of this great
land. It is, to a certain extent, a reproduction of
the inventive talent and the agricultural intelli
gence of the people of this Republic. As the days
jpass the grand industrial fair will increase in enter
taining features, and all who take an interest in the
products of our country, whether horticultural,
agricultural, or inventive, should visit this exhibi
tion,
“ THE HUMMING BIRD.”
“The Humming Bird ” will close its three weeks’
successful engagement at the Bijou Opera House
•October 15, and on Tuesday, October 18, Mr. Rice
brings “The Corsair” to open the regular Fall and
Winter season at this pretty theatre. As Mr. Ed-,
E. Rice never does anything by halves or
breaks his promises, “The Corsair” is sure to be
What he says it is, a “spectacular Byronio operatic
burlesque, replete with original music, fascinating
and bewildering situations.”
* The stage business is new and original and is in
dented by Mr. Henry E. Dixey, under whose direc
tion it was produced at Boston a few weeks since,
dirhere it made an instantaneous hit. The produc
tion will cost $30,000, and Mr. Rice has spent sev
eral years in designing the costumes. Among the
felever and well known people that will appear
ftmong the sixty-five artists, are Miss Annie Somer
ville, Mr. Frank David, Signor J. C. Brocolini, Mr.
iGeorge A. Shiller, Mr. Edward Morris and Miss Kate
Hart. The box-office will be open for the sale of
peats on Tuesday.
“THE ARABIAN NIGHTS.”
The management of “ The Arabian Nights,” the
Spectacularburlesque which has been so successful
at the Standard Theatre during the past four weeks,
is evidently determined to keep alive the interett
aroused in the piece. New features are being con
stantly introduced, and these, with the many novel,
ties, bright mus c, superb ballets and Dolls’ quad
rille, and the clever comedy work of Mr. Richard
Gohlen, serve to make up a moat enjoyable per
formance. The most recent addition to the cast is
Miss Anna Russell, who is only eighteen years of
age. She possesses a superb mezzo-soprano voice,
and is one of the favorite pupils of Mme. Murio
Celia. Miss Russell plays the Princess.
FANNY HERRING.
1 This week Miss Fanny Herring will be seen in

fame, with a number of magnificent illustrations.
?he apparatus used in these entertainments is
Unique, and produces most charming effects. Dis
solving is only introduced when the character of

Mr. A. M. Palmer’s regular season at the Madison
Square Theatre was auspiciously commenced on
Monday evening last, with a continuance of the
performance of the lamented Sir Charles Young’s
play of “Jim the Penman,” which had a success as
remarkable as it was deserved, in the past season.
The company included in the cast is virtually the
same now as then.
A brilliant audience was gathered upon this occa
sion, and this theatre has never bad more cultured
and fashionable assemblages within its walls than
those which witnessed the performance of this
drama during the past weak. In a succeeding issue
of this journal Mr. John Carboy will discourse at
length upon Mr. Palmer and his career as a mana
ge,

especially selected company and the play will be
illustrated by new and appropriate scenic settings
and appointments.

On Monday evening last the production of a
dramatization of Rider Haggard’s novel of “She”
was made at the Lee Avenue Academy of Music,
Brooklyn, E. D. Messrs. Berger & Price gave it the
advantage of effective scenio setting and stage
mechanism, and the cast was capably represented.

nessed by large audiences, and the work was re

ment, the place was packed in every part. Mr..
Bunnell has made many changes, and proposes to
make it one of the most popular resorts in the city.
Ho has arranged for a succession of novelties, and
with his long experience as a manager of various
attractions, museums and theatres, he will doubt
less ensure himself an ample return for his enter
prise, and reward our amusement seekers with a
full measure of entertainment.
His present chief attractions are Woodman’s Water
Wonders—the educated seals, who are marvelously
well trained. Added to these are many curiosities
and novel features, which have rarely been seen in
this city. The museum is open all day and in the
evening until 10 P. M.

tion that, in Philadelphia last week, at the Central

nights, the street approaching the theatre was so
filled with people that tuo pedect=iau» vu walnut
street were “blocked out.”
“ AS IN A LOOKING-GLASS.”
Mrs, Langtry and her company will repeat “As in
a Looking-Glass” during the current week. There
has been little diminution, if any, in the numbers
of the audiences, and therefore there is no need of a
change in the bill. Special consideration has al
ready been made in reference to the play and its
performance, which obviates the necessity of ex
tended mention.
Matinee as usual on Saturday.
THE ALHAMBRA.
Thiess’s Music Hall and Alhambra is daily and
nightly thronged with patrons who are gratified
by the excellent music given by the band and by
the great orchestrion. Manager Theiss is prosper

the present season.
Musical an.cl Dramatic Items.
A cablegram from Paris announces
the death ot Mlle. Aimee Tricon, known to the profes
sion as Marie Aiinee, on Sunday, October 2. On the pre
vious Thursday she was in excellent spirits. On Friday
she decided to undergo a surgical operation for the re
moval oi an ovarian tumor. On Saturday she was seized
with violent and incessant vomiting, and she died on
Sunday in the greatest agony. She was buried on Tues
day. October 4th, at the Church of Notre Dame, at Au
teuil. A cable dispatch says that but one solitary
mourner. M. Tricon, her stepfather, followed the shabby
hearse drawn by the very old spavined black horses, and
adds:
Upon the hearse rested six wreaths—two large ones,
made of v.olets and white roses; two smaller ones, made
of black and white glass beads, and two very small ones,
made of lilies of the vtl'.ey. The large wreaths bore the
inscription, “A noire anile.”
Upon the church steps stood twenty or thirty ladies
and gentlemen, the latter reverentially removing their
hats as the modest hearse—the funeral was of tl.e category
technically known as fifth class—drew up before the
church.
Among the mourners were M. Serpette, the musical
composer; Maurice Grau, M. Chizzola, M. Bertrand,
director of the Theatre des Varieties, where Aimee made
her debut; M. Baron, the popular comic singer of the Va
rieties; Composer Prevel, and Mme. Sully, who used to
sinsewith Aimee in New York.
The mourner who wept most was a pretty little bru
nette of sixteen, Aimee’s niece. The ceremony was the
simplest imaginable, performed by a venerable-looking
priest, assisted by two young Italian priests.
About a dozen followed the remains to her country
place at Noquet. near Joinville-le-Pont, in the gaideu of
which she was buried.
A feeling of profound sadness prevails
in London among those who recollect Mme. Lind Gold
schmidt’s brilliant career on the lyric stage, over the
news, for which her son is authority, that she whose
voice charmed so many nations now lies helpless and
“ slowly but surely sinking.” The life now ebbing away
has not reached the Scriptural span by some years. Her
age, in fact, is but sixty-six. It may seem strange to
those of the older generation to learn that the Swedish
Nightingale, whose exquisite warble they had heard, has
baen, of all others, partially deprived of the power of
sp< ech. It is just forty years since she made her appear
ance in London as Alice in “Robert Le Diable.”
Throughout her life her hand had ever been open to
relieve the poor and needy. Her noble generosity is
especially known at Norwich, where yesterday thecom
mittee o'the institution which bears the honored name
by whicn she was most widely known, “ Jenny Lind,”
passed a vote of s> mra’.hy with her and her family. The
trying hours through which she is passing are without
physical suffering. As one of the committee men said,
when she passes away “ those to whom she is dear may
always cherish the happy recollection that she ever wore
the white flower of a spotless life.”
Dick Golden, who is attracting con
siderable attention by his clever work as Klub-Lubba in
■ The Arabian Nights” at the Standard, tells a good story
of nis experience in Hazleton, Pa., a small town on the
ton of Buck Mountain, while starring in “A Barber's
Sciane.” It had been snowing nearly all day, but the
usual number of loafers had managed (o gain admission
to the hall on one pretext or another before the doors
opened As manager of the com pany it was Mr. Golden's
duty to eject the intruders. After this had been done be
discovered a sickly-looking youth concealed behind the
big stove which barely served to heat the hall.
“And what are you doing here ?” said Golden, prepar
ing to grasp the culprit’s collar.
“I’nf not right in my head,” was the calm reply. It
was the village idiot.
“All right. Take a front seat. You’re the kind we want
at this per ormance.”
“Whether it was due to the bad play or mv bad acting,
I don't know,” says Golden, “but the lad had an epileptic
fit during the performance which nearly caused a panic
among the forty people who staggered in before 8:30.”
Jacques Offenbach’s artistic domestic
gojds and chattels were sold in the Hotel Drouot, Paris,
on last Friday afternoon. Fewer persons were present
than had been expected, but the artistic odds and ends
were speedily disposed of. A beautiful little bijou violin,
handsomely enamelled, went for 575 francs. 'A curious
ornament of porcelain, consisting of a groun ot children
in Oriental cafians, all playing some musical instru
ment, was knocked down for 200 francs, or thereabout
Among other objects was a figure <f Euterpe in bronze,
given to Offenbach by the Emperor Napoleon HI, in
1856; a portrait of Rossini, with autograph ; an organ in
carved oak, several pianos, a broken violoncello, pic
tures by Detaille, Vibert and others, and a laurel wreath
which was presented to the composer by the company of
t!;e Gaite Tneatre, when Offenbach was manager of that
establishment. The sale was a sad one, and evoked
many memories of the most popular comnoser of his
dsy. Offenbach made a great deal <4 money, and he
spent it as freely as he earned it.
A sensational story was printed last
to the effect that Sara Jewett, not long ago the
brilliant leading lady of the Union Square Theatre, was
in want and applied to the Actor's Fund for relief. The
reason for this condition of affairs, the story went on to
state, was to be found in the fact that Miss Jewett had
been addicted for some time to the use of opium, and was
thereby so unfitted for the duties of her profession that
she was unable to k-<ep an engagement. The single grain
of truth in this elaborately concocted story seems to be
that Miss Jewett has been in ill health for some time, and
has boen unable to practice her profession. She is some
what embarrassed financially, as might be expected un
der the circumstances, but she is by no means in waut,
and has not applied to the Actors’ Fund for relief, nor
has she received Mr. A. M. Palmer’s check for $l5O, as
the story further stated. Miss Jewett is staying with
riends in the country, and has the best medical advice.
NEW YORK DISPATCH, OCTOBER 9, 1887.
Manager Rosenqueat is malting exten
give preparations at the Fourteenth Street Theatre for
the forthcoming engagement of George 8 Knight, which
begins October 24th, when that popular comedian wni
be seen in Bronson Howard and David Belasco’s comedy
drama entitled “ Rudolph. Baron von Hollenstein. The
piece will be given in four nets and five tableaux, and
Mr. Knight will have his original part of Rudolph. Mrs.
Sophie Knight will again appear as Nellie Dashwood, a
part in which she was very successful several seasons
ago. Hawley and Emens have been at work on the new
scenery for several months, and promise to snr; riswhe
public with the beauty of their wo k. The supporting
cast will include Miss Carrie Turner. Jane Stuart, Chas.
Bowser, M. A. Kennedy, and other well-known people.
Henry E. Abbey appears to have no
doubt that Miss Mary Anderson would play under bis
management as arranged verbally six months ago. The
plan then agreed upon was that the actress shculd open
the season next year, Oct. 1. As for the report by cable
that Miss Anderson had made an engagement with Law
rence Barrett, Mr. Abbey said smilingly to an inter
viewer that he did not believe the report:
“I made a verbal agreement with Miss Anderson six
months ago,” said he, “and that was, as you know, after
her playing under my management for three years,
equivalent to a written contract. It is known, 1 believe, ,
that Mr. Barrett "tried to get her, but there is a difference
between trying and getting.”
A new theatre has just been completed
in Odessa, and will be opened in October. No less than
1,20'\000 roubles were spent in its construction, and both
inside and out the fittings and decorations are of the
most sumptuous kind. The theatre, which has a seating
capacity of 2,000, is exceptionally rich in statues, lapis
lazuli marble pillars, mosaic and gilding. As the month
ly receipts cannot exceed 60000 roubles, and as a new
opera cannot be put on the stage for less than 40,000
roubles, or a drama under 20,030 roubles, the theatre will
cost the Odessa municipality some 100,000 roubles a
year, exclusive of the cost of scenery, costumes and light
ing, which will be by electricity.
A Nevada man, who paid three dol
lars to hear Remenyi. the violinist, play at a concert,
went to his hotel per.ectly delighted with the entertain
ment, but found afeilow in the adjoining room who was
m iking the violin actually suffer. Going to the door, the
Nevada man yelled: “Say, I’ve just heard the great
Remenyi. and after hearing him. the agony you’re hist in’
out o’ that fiddle, would make a man dream of & Chinese
orchestra.’’ It was Remenyi practicing, but he put the
fiddle carefully away under the b?d.
McKee Rankin’s production of ‘"Mac
beth,” with Kelley’s music, has been deferred until Feb
ruary next. The hitch is mainly concerning the scenery
and accessories. It will be impossible to complete all
details by October 31st, which was the day set ior the
opening, although Gaspard Maeder and Wm. Schaefer
and their assistants have been working night and day on
the “Macbeth” models.
Mrs. Lewis Dockstader, though Quite
ill and threatened with typhoid fever, is expected to es
cape that dreaded disease through careful nursing and
good medical attendance. Her sickness was presumably
brought about by the foul odors arising from the tearing
up of Broadway, near the Sturtevant House, where Mr.
and Mrs. Dockstader reside. At last accounts she was
more comfortable.
The bitterest war that has ever been
waged against theatrical ticket speculators is now in i re
gress in Chicago, where the Booth-Barrett Company are
now playing an engagement. In spite of the lact that
only four seats were sold to any one person, the advance
sale previous to the opening night reached the sum of
$40,000.

THE BLUE LAWS OF PURITANICAL TIMES RE
VIVED.
Had a stranger steppod into the Court of Special
Sessions last week, he would, if of an Imaginative
mind, supposed himself wafted back to the old Pur
itanical times of a century and more ago.
So far as Sunday is concerned, we have gone back
to the good old times in its observance.
If the Sabbath law is broken, and arrest follow,
there is a fine, and if the fine isn’t paid, there is
imprisonment.
But the worst feature of this Sabbath observance
is the fact that a trial must follow an arrest, as it is
a misdemeanor, and if bail oannot be furnished the
accused lies some time in prison before being tried.
The trials of these “Sabbath breakers” reads al
most like a leaf torn out from the history of the
olden times.
A lady who keeps a delicatessen store was fined
five dollars for selling a box of sardines, and another
woman in the same line was fined five dollars for
selling a pound of sausages. An officer arrested a
tailor in his residence at No. 23 Rutger street, for
pressing clothes. The officer thought this Sabbath
breaking. The Court didn’t.
August Lotz, who keeps a liquor saloon at No. 153
Washington street, opened his door to admit the
milkman. Officer Reliefer entered after the milk
man and arrested the proprietor for violating the
law. The Court discharged him.
Joseph Cohen’s door, at No. 127 Division street,
was open. Officer Langin, citizen’s clothes, passing,
saw a man trying on a coat. He went in and ar
rested the proprietor. The officer saw nothing
sold.
Mr. Cohen and his tailor said it was ten o’clock in
the evening. The tailor said he worked for Mr.
Cohen, he went in the store to get the pattern of a
barber’s jacket. He put it on himself to sea how it
fltted. and was going to use it for a pattern, ThQ
Court acquitted Mr. Cohen.
There was a butcher at No. 55 Hester street found
selling a pound of meat, at half past two in the
afternoon. He was fined ten dollars.
A grocer was open after ten o’clock obliging his
customers with the fixings for a Sunday’s dinner.
They fined him five dollars,
A lady who keeps a store in the Seventh Precinct,
showing one of the sex some darning needles, was
fined ten dollars.
A customer went into a store in Division street to
pay a debt to the proprietor. He was fined ten dol
lars. The most puritanical would hardly decline
being paid a bad debt on Sunday. Lifting collec
tions on Sunday would seem to be as near a viola
tion of the law as receiving payment of a claim.
Oak Point, on the Sound, is quite a resort in the
Summer. Tho lessees got up a “ dry” toboggan.
Justice Ford wanted to know what that was.
Officer Newman, of the Thirty-third Precinct, who
made tho arrest of Griffing and McKenna, said it
was a thing you slid down du, then walked up to
slide down again.
Tbe public had access to it, the officer said in
answer to justice Smith, and then charged for the
slide.
“Did you seo anybody pay that day?’asked
counsel.
“No,” replied the officer.
“They must have been deadheads,” remarked the
Court.
“Did you hear any muaio?” asked counsel.
“No,” replled/jthe officer, "but the defendants
I ran this machine.”
“Seems to me those that slid down thia concern
ran themselves without machinery,” remarked
counsel, “ Did you soe any sign up ?”
“Yes; ‘Five cents ’ up in the box office,”
“But you saw no money taken ?”
“No; I only looked at tho machine,” said tho
officer.
This was not considered a breaking oi the Sab
bath, and the accused were acquitted.

WHERE TEMPTATION COMES IN TO LEAD
ASTRAY.
Solomon Benjamin was charged with assaulting
Estelle Weis, a very voluptuous young lady, who
gave her residence. No. 49 Forsyth street. She said
she stood outside of the hall and he took hold of
her, and struck her. She said she would fix him.
He said, “ You can’t; I’ve been eight years in the
country and it’s mine.” He thought she couldn’t
do anything.
“ What is your business ?” asked counsel of the
fair damsel.
“Finisher of ulsters.”
“ Do you know this girl ?” pointing to the young
miss behind him.
“ No; I never saw her.”
“ Did he tell you that you should not speak to
this girl ?”
“ No.”
“ Did this man speak to you about this girl ?”
“ No.”
“ Didn't he tell you that that girl shouldn’t go
with you ?”
“ No.”
Sophie Bernie, the girl alluded to, said she was
sixteeen years of age, and lived at No. 92 RiviDgton
street. She knew complainant.
“ What conversation did you have with her ?”
“ Going to my mother, up stairs, this lady (com
plainant) was on the stoop. She said, ‘What do
you wish ?’ I said, ‘ Nothing.* She said, ‘ You are
a very nice girl; come with mo and I will give you
money.’ I said, ‘For what?’ She said, 'Ob, you
are very good looking. You could make money.* ”
Counsel, in calling the defendant, said this was
not an exceptional case. Women of bad repute get
into fiats, and not only turned them into houses of
bad repute, but tried, as in this case, to inveigle
young girls of good looks into their premises, and
thus ruined them. He would not speak of the
young men that were lured into the apartments of
flats; they were not ruined, but harm wm done.
He called tbe defendant to tbe stand.
Solomon said he was salesman in a clothing store.
He knew Miss Weis; had known her for a month;
she kept a fast house In a flat. He hoard her talk
to the young girl, the last witness, as she was com
ing in the hall. She asked the girl to come in her
house and she would make a lady of her, and the
girl could make money. Next night he heard the
same inducements held out to the girl in the hall.
He told Miss Weis the girl was but sixteen, had a
father and mother, and he would make her move.
Ho was a man of family himself and could not
stand quietly by and see a girl go to ruin, and
spoke his mind freely on the subject. She caught
him by the arm* “May be I struck her once,”
He went to the landlord and compelled her |to
move.
The previous landlord of Estella said she was a
woman o. the own, and bothered him in his flats.
Solomon ■*s acquitted,

THEY MIGHT PLAY IT IN A “THEYATRE,”
NOT IN A COURT.
Gilbride, of the Eighteenth Precinct, charged
Jack Smith with throwing a lighted lamp at him in
the hallway at No. 425 East Eighteenth street.
“Why did. he fire this lighted lamp at you?”
asked Justice Smith.
“They were sending off fireworks, and I told him
to stop three times. He didn't, and ran in the
house. I followed him, and he took and fired the
lighted lamp at me on the stairs, going up.”
Officer Connor corroborated bis brother officer.
John Smith, sworn, was asked by his counsel if
ho knew anything about the throwing of the lamp.
He said no. He was on the roof at the time, when
Jack Smith, a namesake, came up, and he askod
him what was the matter. Jack said the officer was
after him, and John said he would keep out of the
way. He didn’t do it,, and had a.couple of witnesses
to prove he was not the John Smith that threw the
lamp; it was another Jack Smith.
Gilbride, recalled, said he got a warrant out for
Smith; he knew-him. He was only recently down
after serving a year.
Ann Sexton, living in the house, was called by,
the prisoner. She said she was at the head of the
stairs, looking at the boy breaking the lamp over
the officer's head. John Smith, the prisoner, wasn t
there. It was Jack Smith, another fellow, that
did it.
“How Long do you know John Smith, the
prisoner?” asked the Court.
<* I knew his father and his mother beforo him.”
“Iwould like to ask her a question?” asked
Gilbride.
The Court assented.
She said she was in the room at the head: of the
stairs. She acknowledged asking the officer to stop
the noise; but tbe lamp then had been broken.
Officer Connor said he knew Jack Smith at the
bar, the other Jack Smith they talked about was a
myth. At the time of this occurrence he saw him
at the head of the stairs throw the lamp.
Mary Morris said she saw the trouble. She saw the
officer chase the boys who went on the roof. The
boys camo in with a can of beer. It wasn’t this Jack
Smith, it was enolher Jack, who ran. on the roof,
that threw the lamp.
“ How do you know ?” asked tho officer.
“ I stood at my own door,” replied Mary, “ it was
the other Jack Smith.”
“Did he look like him ?” asked the Court.
“ Not a bit like the other Jack Smith. He wasn’t
dark complexioned. Tho other Jack skipped on the
roof alter throwing the lamp, and left his beer be
hind him.”
“ Didn't you tell me you were fast asleep ?” asked
the officer.
“Yes, sir; but I saw it all. The other Jack Smith
ran up stairs.**
“Why isn’t the other Jack Smith here ?” asked
Justice Ford.
“He is afraid to come,” said Jack Smith, the
prisoner.
“ Three months,” said the Court.

Infernal Misery.
THE STORY TWO WOMEN TOLD IN COURT.
Two men and their wives were before Justice
Duffy yesterday morning.
It would be next to the impossible to do justice
when they wouldn’t do it to themselves, their wives
and children.
One of the men neglected his wife, and gave all
his earnings to a woman of bad repute, the other
woman at the bar. That woman also had her
grievance, by alleging that all she made was gob
bled up by her husband, who forced her to lead this
sort of life.
This party of miserables were brought in court
by officer Flood of the Eighth Precinct.
George Smith and his wife reside at No. 164
Bleecker street.
The other tyro, Charles Wigel and his wife, live at
No. 514 feleecker street.
Mrs. Smith was the first to tell her story. She
had a baby six weeks old in her arme, three others
at home, and had been jnarried twelve years,
They were
She said-that her husband bad neglected her and
bls children for this woman, Wigel. He was there
last night (Friday) with her. She Baid she caught
him in bod with the woman.
He said he was only sitting on tbe side of tbe
bed, but he could give no valid excuse for being
there.
Mrs. Smith said her husband was a painter, made
S2O a week, but gave her little to support the house.
All she got last week for herself and four children
was a dollar and a half; before that, nothing for a
long time. AU his money was spent on women
outside. Mrs. Wigel got most all of it. He was
infatuated with the woman.
Mr. Wigel said he was in tbe laundry business.
Four years ago this woman wriggled him in court
on a charge of seduction, and he was forced to
marry her. His Honor Justice Duffy spliced them.
His Honor Justice Duffy thought he had made a
mighty bad splice.
Wigel said it was a sad day for him that he was
married to the woman. When in a fit of temper she
often fired him out of the house. Every shop he
went to work in, she had him put out.
He worked in a laundry, so he said.
“That’s what he says,” said Mrs. Wigel. “But
the fact is, I have had to become a bad woman to
support him; and what iu worse, steal for him.
Tbe last time I was caught, it was for $lO from a
man. I got two months, and he only got three
days. He is a canting hypocrite.”
“You could do better than be wrong in support
ing yourself tn this way ?” remarked the Justice.
“ Certainly, but I am forced by him,” replied the
woman.”
“She could talk the boots off a man; she is the
greatest liar living,” said Wigel of his wife.
“Your wife ?”
“Yes, sir.”
“You don’t deny that you force her on the street,
and live off her ?” remarked the Justice.
“No, he can’t,” said the woman.
“And between you this other family has been
ruined I” continued tho Justice.
“ She has ruined me,” said Wigel. “ She is living
with a policy man in Thirty-fifth street.”
“You can’t prove that,” said Mrs. Wigel.
Wigel and his wife were ordered to get out; there
was no legal charge against them.
Smith, however, was held on the charge of aban
donment, and ordered to pay bis wife $6 a week.

JE?ol<ect His JNose In.
AND HE GOT HURT BY THE OBJECTOR.
Adam Tuttle, a middle aged gentleman, was
charged with assaulting Carroll Humphrey, of No.
350 West Seventeenth street—striking him in the
face.
Mr. Humphrey said he was in his back room
Thursday last, when he heard a scream in the base--
ment, a child crying and a pet dog barking. He
thought there was murder there, and went down
and looked in the basement window, and saw Mrs.
Tuttle on the floor. He raised the window and said,
“Stop that.” Mr, Tuttle said, “I’ll fix you,” and
went under tho table. Mr. Humphrey put his head
in the window, when he was hit on the nose by Mr.
Tuttle. He just put his head in the window, sup
posing it was murder, and said, “ Stop that,” when
he got it between the eyes.
Mr. Tuttle said his wife was troubled with an in
curable disease, as stated by the doctor. When ne
came home he found- her in a frenzy, and he laid
her on the floor till he could get medicine to give
her. He kept her on the floor to prevent her from
injuring herself. Her clothes were disordered. Mr.
Humphrey put his head through the window and
said, “Damn you* what are you doing with that
woman?” Mr. Tuttle told him to keep away. Mr.
Humphrey said, “I*ll fix you.’* Mr. Tuttle said he
went round by the table and hit Mr. Humphrey.
Twice before Mr. Humphrey stuck his nose in the
window, and he told him he could take care of his
own business. On this occasion he was only re
straining his wife from committing violence on
herself. When she had these spells it took him and
his son to hold her.
“You were tried here on your wife’s complaint ?”
said Justice Smith.
“ Yes, sir; but I waa discharged.”
Mrs. Tuttle was called by her husband. She said
it was true what her husband had testified to.
“ Was it necessary far your husband to take hold
of you ?” asked counsel.
“ Yea; sir; when I feel them coming on I try to
overcomethem. That night I thought he was not
home as soon as he ought to be.”
“Was he beating you?” asked counsel.
“No; he only held my hands.”
“ Has he ever beaten you?”
“Never.”
“You. once charged him with assault and bat
tery,” said tho Court.
“Yes, sir, Iknow; but I always commenced, it.”
“Acquitted,” said the Court.

THE VOLUNTEER.
How well do we remember the year of 'GI,
When 'gainst our old Fort Sumter was fired the
rebel gun.
Five and seventy thousand mon were called; ’twas
thought we’d need no more
To protect our flag and country, and end a cruel
war.
We were but boys at that time, and of course were
carried away
With the thought that ’twas a picnic to go aud fight
the gray.
Most all gave up bright prospects for eleven a month
—no more,
To run the risk of life or limb—whatever was in
store.
It was then the girls (God bless them I) were patri
otie, too,
And many a heart then went down South along
with the boys in blue.
Our thoughts were ever with them when we were
standing guard;
They made long marches easy, and hard tack not so
hard.
We suffered untold hardships, the tough ones lived
it through.
We’re getting old and feeble now, and some with
naught to do.
Now, when we ask but little—enough to life sus
tain—
When that’s refused, we almost wish they’d call on
us again.
And there’s those little greenbacks—that we seldom
got when due—
The interest on our money amounted to something
too;
For often eight and ton months passed and nary a
eent had we;
But the accommodating sutler would lend us one
for three.
When we at first enlisted, wo were paid in solid
gold;
A word about the greenbacks to ns was never told.
A dollar was a dollar, then; it meant a hundred
cents;
But when it dropped to thirty-three, it made some
difference.
Might it not have been better had we filled a sol
diers grave
With our departed comrades, the noblest of the
brave ?
Though death did often at us stare, true all could
not be killed;
For the Johnnies always found us there, as God on
high so willed.
It seems a dream how things have changed. Our
best days spent in war,
To find, on coming home, no place in factory of
store;
And when we ask a little mite, they turn with
hearts of stone
And cry aloud: ••You’ve had enough. Go to the
Soldier s Home 1”
The foregoing verses, written by Comrade N. R.
Middleton, formerly of the Sixth Connecticut Vol
unteers; and dedicated to the Service Pension Asso
ciation, were read at a recent post meeting, and was
loudly applauded. They are published at the re
quest of a number of comrades.
VETERANS OF THE FIFTY-SEVENTH.
Over forty comrades-, who were formerly mem
bers of the Fifty-seventh Regiment, New York
Volunteers, held a.reunion on October Ist, which
will live long in the memories of those who par
ticipated. It was the first gathering of the surviv
ing members of this regiment since their return
from the war, twenty-three years age, and the re
joicing, hand-shaking and expressions of delight in
which these veterans indulged when they gathered
at the Stevens House, No. 25 Broadway, made a
scene worth witnessing. The tattered and bullet
riddled regimental flag they had carried through
the war was on hand to meet them, having been
carefully, preserved through the efforts of Colonel
Britt, and the “old boys ” gazed at what remained
of their colors with pride and affection. After a
short time spent in recalling the days of yore, the
veterans fell into line, marched to the Staten Island
boat and embarked for New Dorp and Camp Lafay
ette, where they went over their old camp-ground
with an interest akin to that of a man well along in
years when he visits the home of his childhood.
After, gathering around their old flag-staff, which is
still standing, and greeting it with cheers, they ad
journed to the Pavilion Hotel, where a bountiful
spread had been prepared. Battles were fought
again, stories told,, the old songs sang and a good (
time generally enjoyed until the time arrived for
the march homeward.
The Fifty-seventh Regiment left for the seat of
war in October, 1861, about 900 strong, with a stand
of colors presented to them by the late President
Arthur, in behalf ©I the sugar merchants of New
York. They were commanded by Colonel Zook,
afterward promoted to Brigadier General, who-fell
at Gettysburg while gallantly leading his brigade.
The regiment was attached to the first division of
the Second Corps, and took part in all of the battles
fought by the Army of the Potomac during its term
o£ service. As nearly as can be learned, only about
100 original members of the regiment are now
living, and they have formed a regimental veteran
association and propose to have these reunions
annually. Next year they will unite with the
Society of the Army of the Potomac in celebrating
the battle of Gettysburg, and intend to erect a
monument on the battle-field. The Secretary, Com
rade J. J. McConnell, No. 501 Hudson street, is
anxious to get the name and address of every sur
viving member and hopes they wU4 communicate
with him for that purpose.
SOME BROOKLYN NOTES.
It is proposed to have a building erected In Brook
lyn for the joint use of the Grand Army and the Na
tional Guard, at a cost of about $250,000, to be de
frayed by a small tax upon the county. Why can
not the County of Now York do likewise?
The entertainment and reception of the Veteran
Association of the Second. Fire Zouaves took place
last Monday evening at Grand Army Hall, Brooklyn,
E. D., aud was a success, .in every particular. The
hall was filled with the friends of the association at
an early hour. Then,, after a few introductory re
marks, General H. E. Tremain presented General
Daniel E. Sickles, who was greeted with great ap
plause. An entertain me ut came next, in which
Misses Marion axd Blanche Bender, Ella V. Corri.
gsn, Lizzie L. Ck.rk, Ida B. Travis, Florence French,
and Messrs. Theodore Edgar and Daniel Quinn took
part. Dancing followed, and was kept up until a
late hour.
The War Veterans of the Fourteenth Regiment
have made all the preparations for their trip to
Gettysburg* The association will meet at 7P. M.
in their moms at the City Hall, on the 18th inat.,
and leave for Jersey City by the annex boat afr 9:30
P. M. It is estimated that 2,500 or 3,000 people will
take part in the excursion. Tickets for the round
trip, by., the special excursion train, harm been
placed at the low price of $5.30. An address, in
which the history of the regiment will be reviewed,
is.to be delivered by ex-Mayor Seth Low.
They do those things right in Brooklyn. Last
Thursday evening the Republicans nominated two
gallant veterans for the offices of Mayor and Sheriff.
Comrade Andrew D. Baird, the nominee for Mayor;
is a member of Perry Post. He enlisted as a private
in the Seventy-ninth N. Y. Vols. (Higl4ander?>at
the beginning of the war, and rose step by step,
and when mustered out, in July, 1865, was Major
and brevet Lieutenant Colonel of the regiment. He
was severel times wounded, and still carries a rebel
bullet in his arm. Ho ia a strong and popular man,
and will give any opponent a hard tussle. Comrade,
Clark D. Rhinehart, the nominee for Sheriff, is a
member of Barbara Freitchie Post, and at present
holds the position of Civil Justice in the Fourth
District. The contest between him and the United
Labor candidate for the same office, Comrade James
W. Webb, of Rankin Post, is likely to prove an ex
citing one.
Major E. H. Parkinson, who was the first superin
tendent of the Soldiers’ Home at Bath, and who is
now a resident of Nebraska, has been visiting his
Brooklyn friends during the past week. He re
ceived, a hearty greeting from the old boys.
LAFAYETTE POST STILL ADVANCING.
At the encampment of Lafayette Post, held on
Friday evening, there was a large turn-out and a
jolly time. Six recruits were mustered in and an
equal number of new applications were received,
one of the latter being from Lieutenant Zalipski, of
dynamite gun fame. There was very fine punch
and a glorious lunch, which the vets proceeded to
swallow and munch.
Some of those present were: Comrade Hudson, o?
California; Gen. Robert Nugent, Col. George F. Hop
per, Commanders McEntee, Odell and Underhill;
Judge Hall. Judge Gedney, Col. Parker, late of Gen.
Grant’s staff, and a host of others. Commander
Brown, Past Commander Appleby, Adjt. Greig and
the other officers and members of Lafayette “did
themselves proud,” as usual, by the manner in
which they entertained their guests.
