OUR AKTIST. Ills Tislt to the Memphis Clnb Hall. .'. .c I The Recent Tableaux Tlrant In Portraiture. Being invited by two of Nature' fairest daughters to visit the scene of amuse ment and merriment in tbe way of tableauz vivant, I accepted this ia vita- lion, and about half-past seven I strolled t tkt place of meeting. Upon entering the ball or club room, and taking a quiet gurvef ,' I wa farced to tbe conclusion that tbe elite of the city was in attend ance. The old, with their heads silvered over with the frost of manT 'winters, the middle aged in the prime of life, the youth just opening in full bloom, the sunny face of childhood with the flaxen hair, were there ; all looking ' anxiously for the curtain to be raised some to be hold a loved one representing a eharac ter ia scenes, others with palpitating hearts, who were to take part in the en tertainment, and others to pass away pleasantly and profitably tbe hours de voted to such amusements, i At about eight o'clock the curtain rose, and to the astonishment of the whole company, there was presented to their vision one of the truest pictures in real life,' viz: " Contentment better than wealth." This was the first scene, and oh I how many hearts were touched by tbe picture, as the wealthy thought of their early strug gles and longed far the happiness of the contenter. The characters were all per fect, and the actors did themselves great credit. After the-applause ceased, which was long and loud, the city band di coursed sweet music until the curtain rose the second time to present a beauti ful and impressive scene "The Princess Lambelle receiving the death sentence-" Many a brave heart shrank with terror, and the' fair women suppressed their emotions at beholding a picture which was so life-like that each and every one felt that the characters represented were the original ones, and they the witnesses to this sad and mournful occasion. All the characters were well sustained, and many a tear coursed down the blanched cheek at the representation. Next came a scene that is familiar to all who read history , "Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn at a Court Ball." The King being smitten with her, importunes her to dance. From the varied expression of her face, she seems ready to deoline; but her interest, and the recollection that he is her king, leads her to accept; and in the Second scene they Henry VIII and Anne Bj leyn lead of in the dance, presenting a gay and brilliant sight tbe beautiful background being composed of the noble lords and ladies of the court, and oalling to mind the splendor of bis court. A perfect suocess. Next came a scene that was at once recognized by every one, present: " The Votaries of the World." Here we foued no two characters alike each seeking and viein jsawith each other for supremacy ia obtaining tbe largest amount of per sonal enjoyment for the present, and en tirely forgetful of tbe future; and each struggling to forget tha past, in their effort, to surround themselves with atl of life that contributes to momentary hap piness. A true picture. Next in order came " The Votaries of Religion," by way of contrast with the former. In this cd. Religion was .p resented l the priettrts at the altar, sur rounded by la votanee, ecb and all of whom are eeeking entrance to the folded gates of the New Jerusalem, and who faces radiated a light that r fleeted apu many a heart that was pvweat, and cave arrbuks to the wsyward and Iboughtleeg; and aaid the merriment of tht occasion, .. . . . i i i MEMPHIS. 'TENNESSEE. TIIUIIS0AY EVENING. MAY .21. 1868. profitable lessons were taught by this picture. A happy thought, and wtll ex ecuted. . j .. ' v , I Next In tbe programme wa " Marie Antoinette going to execution." Draped tn a garb that was suitable for the occa sion, without tbe gaudy trappings of the gay court life, with a face, not expressive of fear, but simply a regret that j in tbe prima and ' beauty of lifj, so un expected an wnd should bo bers, when but a few short days previous the was the pet, and thought to be the power be hind the throne. 6he was attended by a file of soldiers and followed by the gspiog crowd, representing to life the instincts and the habits of tht misses, under such circumstances, who pander to their own pleasure at the expense of others, even to life itself. A striking and impressive scene, but painfully making its .way to ,he heart of many who witnessed, thereby proving its success. Next tn order was a representation of "Tbe Passions," and right well did they doit Love, happiness, joy, in all ihelf phashes; despair, energy, indolence, and last, though not1 least, anger, with its bright, shining steel blade directed at the heart of its victim. Had it not betn or tbe bright, (jir faces of tbe parties repre senting tins, we would have, pernapt, uttered a scream or shrank back with apprehension. This party was supposed to have assembled at a feast given to the Goddess of Music, who, by her varied talent, wrought her gutsts to the poiut we beheld tnem. Ibis was decidedly a success. .. ., i .. Now comes a picture that will strike at once, not only the hard hearted business man of tbe world, but even the misan thrope, and bring from the eyes of the . I . L. . .J .L. I-.. II Beniiiueniai jtuuiub iuu iuo tun gruwJ woman tbe briny tears Ot sympathy- " The Emnress Josenhine siznine the di vorce." Our eyes took in the scene at a glance, and our hearts ' were melted in sorrow as we thought of the hard decree, and the manner in which it wag arrived at, by the then monarch of the world- How sad, torced by her womanly pride, to accept a condition that was repugnant to her, and willing trotn her love to tear Bsunder the strings ot a heart that put sated alone for her husband,' whom she believed, from oft repeated profession, to idolize ber, and never for a moment felt that there was another idol in bis soul which was burning bis very exis tence. This idol she discovered only when she received the mandate, and then she knew that ambition was Napoleon's master, and then with her true womanly instinct, she felt tnabsbe would be sacri ficed. ; Surrounded by her weeping family, with Hortense leaning upon her shoulder to bide her Brief from tbe heart- striken officers of the court, who were standing in the back-ground, with coleon seated in his chair of state, with bis head bowed as though he felt sorrow at the deed he wag about to commit, aud so thoroughly were tbe characters eus talned, that we felt like rushing upon the stage and relieving tbe whole party and the European world by ' destroying Napoleon. , To relieve the pent-up feelings of the company, and once more ' burst the bands of sorrow and sympathy which controlled all, Ibe Voice ot bpring broke upon us, and we could bear in our imazination the carol , of the birds, and tbe dozy hum of the bee, while we witnessed all tbe evidences ot spring time in the way of floral offerings. Tbe scene itsell would, even in tried winter, so perfect was it accomplished, have cheated us into the "belief that we were in the sunny South, and surrounded by midsummer. Then the heart was re lieved, and tbe joyous tones of the parly could again be heard, and once more the1 bright smiles of happiness could be seen, and the painful expressions, produced by the previous scene, was evaporated, bud the soul was again free. An appro priate and happy conception, particular ly when we discovered the other seasons, . t , , . ' . i- i - IB lueir regular eraer, peneuiijr rejuo sented in tbe distance. The next carried us to the mountains of Mexico and the borders of Spain "The Wounded Guerrilla," .Worn and weary from loss of blood and long, travel, he seats himself upon the rocky side of a hill, with a look of despair; and as be is about being overcome, be is ministered to by the hands of fair women, who en tirely forget hit occupatiSn, from their sympathy and their natural teal to relieve human suffering. A pretty scene. While we were trying to analyze onr feeling), tbe bell rang and the curtain rose again, to expose to our view a scene that carried us back to our boyhood days " The Masquerade," or a gay and fes tive Spanish dance; and in our abstrac tion so perfect was its outline, that we felt a shudder at the thought that there might be concealed under those gaudy gar ments an instrument of death in the wsy of a stiletto, and we wished for an opti cal instrument with power enough to penetrate tbe disguise or mask, that we might once more feel at ease. Just at that mement tbe city band touched a chord that softened our feelings and allayed our apprehensions. Thia scene was to life. ' While we were in a state bordering between gloom and miclh, the curtain came up again, and we discovered before nt a scene ao life-life, so natural, that wt were surprised at not bearing an outburst of merriment or a regular jolly laugh, indicative of mirthfulness and ' a true appreciation of reality. What do you suppose this was T "Gossip." Im agine to yourself a gathering of antiquated old maids at a tea drinking. Oh, horrortt what would be the suffering of some gay popinjay, if he coutd hear their comments? He would conclude that be was a wretch and with out character, and unworthy ths notice of any respectable person, and the ladies would stop their ear and flee from tbe gathering,' feelinc that they could not survive such a "gosip." With high, old-fashioned cips plain neat dress, with tongues to sharp and memories to long, that none but their own circle can atand. and only the inhabitants of Noah's ark can recollect. Sj perfect was this picture that we Involuntarily laughed out. and we were rjiicd to find that it was bnt a rr Section of tht whole com p.ry's feelinca While we were enjoying thii picture and onr own reflections at the rui', toe t'ace again presented a s-ce of inie rit beyond description : The Trial of tiuecn Catherine. . Surrounded ry her jountel, attended by her aiaidt of honor, LAIKJTHT CI TT CIKCIXATIOW. and appearing before a tribunal that sb knew was prejudged, but with fearless ness, calm, ana conscious of her own in tegrity, and, as it were, with modesty, braving their dtoisioo, but hoping for tht best bearing all' and suffering . all Could the spirits of the actors in that trial have been present, they would have felt that they were rt enacting it, and would have been cheated Into the belief that they were of the earth. ' ' Ia looking over the large assemblage, we discovered representatives of the va rious occupations in life. Tbe merchant, the lawyer, the gentleman of elegant leisure, with his pockets well filled with gold, and last, though not least, the doe tors, who, from their -elegance of step and suavity of mode, led us to wish that we too were an M D. In strolling about the hall we came npon two tables, one filled with cream and cake and many other good things, too numerous to mention. Tbe other containing iced lemonade, where all the urbanity of life was extended to visitors. Wt were particularly impressed with the master of ceremonies., tie was here, and there, and everywhere, attending to the wants and wishes ot all, and remind ins-us of the Good Shepherd, overlook ing the whole flock. We are informed that this delightful entertainment is due to the genius and (aste of Mrs. Ketchum and Miss Sallie Cornelius, for the benefit of St. Mary s Church, assisted by many of the ladies belonging to tbe same con gregation. Success to them. , , " A Correspondent's Trip to tht White House, Bpeoialto the Cincinnati Commercial. Wasdinotox, May IS Leaving the Senate Chamber at the very moment the taking of tht vote was concluded, I made my way through a jostling, aggressive multitude to the east tront ot tbe Capitol, and signaling to the first carriage that struck my attention, I took my seat, dashed round tbe Capitol to the Avenue past crowds that were still bent toward the excitinir scenes I bad just left. Tbe Chief Justice, who bad doffed his robes in undignified haste, bad taken a shorter cnt, and witb bis private secre tary, strolled out of tbe Capitol grounds into tbe Avenue, and walked slowly to ward his bouse. ' Farther on, I passed Anthony Trol lope, coming up the Avenue alone, using his umbrella as a walking allele. - His face was a trifle more ruddy than usual, but his spindling legs, his 'big body, his bushy beard, and his disproportioned bat could have belonged to no one else ; no hodv looks like Anthony Trollope. Wbinning through the broad archway leading to the President's bouse, the carriage arrived at the portico just be hind one containing Air. btanbery and Mr- Nelson, of the President s counsel tbe horses covered with foam and ridged with lashes. These gentlemen carried the confirmation of tbe pews of the Presi dents substantial acauittal. At the very moment that Mr. Willey's vote was recorded, a message to the Pres ident had been sent from tbe Senate telecraph office by his private secretary to the branch office at Willard'a Hotel, where an orderly was waiting to convey it to Mr. Johnson, lhia message an nounced the defeat of the eleventh artiole, which, being tbe strongest, was consid ered to end forever tbe attempt at im Deacbmcnt t Tbe perspiration ran from every pore of Mr. Nelson't face as he leaped from the carriage, and. with more nervous ness than he has heretofore shown, he hastened to the stairway leading to tbe hall fronting the Presidents room. Mr. S'.anbery, still pale and weak from bis exhausting illness, was more mode rate in his movements, but declined the assistance of Mr. Neleon, who offered to support him in mounting the stairs. ' I followed them closely, and as Mr. Cusham, the , President's door-keeper, opened the door to admit them, I saw Mr. JohnBon through tbe open door, ODening the very telegram which an nounced his acquittal It was only for a moment; the door was closed at once, but I heard the loud voice ot Mr. .Nelson as he exclaimed : Well, thank God, Mr President, tou are free again." -.There were only a few persons waiting in tbe hall and waiting-room when I ar rived at tbe White House. 1 touod Mr. Tavlor. of Frank Leslie's, with pencil and note book, ready to sketch the Presi dent and his friends at tbe moment of their congratulations; but Cusham snubbed him with tbe assurance that it was hardly appropriate to admit him to day; that if he would come to-morrow,' or tome other time, he would show bim every facility. I thought Taylor was a little snappish upon receiving tbe gen tlomanly denial, and he whispered to a friend that they the f resident and bis household might go to well, anywhere that their sins might carry them. " I've cot a sketch of the receiving room; and as for thp President, I taw his position through the door, as he was greeted by his adherents, aud I'll risk all I can to feet ud a fine picture, in spite of them. Sb be turned on his heel and left, after sketching tha halls, etc. I fancy he also got a picture oi tne gooa-naiurea uusnam. At last my own turn came, and I was admitted to the President t room. Mr. Johnson may have counted on the cer tainty of his acquittal trotn tbe urst, and he may have had pleasing assurance from tbe members ef bis Cabinet and his counsel, or some other influence msy have had its effect, but I am very sure that I bave never, during the past two years, seen bim ia better spirits. Ht hat, however, tnrougnoui tne mai, oeen remarkably cheerful and hopeful. Ia an interview, a few dsyt tince, when con viction waa among tbe probabilities, I judged that Mr. Johnson did not regard his conviction as mucn as mat peopie mizht think bim dishonest, unprincipled and reckless of his country's good. lie did not want the Amer.cm people to misunderstand him. To day he bad only time to say a few words to each caller, and thank him for bis visit. "Mr. President you have at last passed through the ordeal, and I pre sume you consider yourelf vindicated T' I remarked. "At to that, I da not know that I am attog-ther out of tht wood a It strike me. however, that their itroogest blade ht beta put forward and then broke a. That may not be decision. Tbeybave coa ducted the matter very clearlr bo fr a today's proceedings go. What do you think of the aspect of affairs V I told him tba, a'.lhouh I hJ limited mesne cf knowing, I yet believed im peachment wa. dead so dead that it, wouil never breath, ajaio; although I d'd not kenw what mJght occur afr tba Chicago CoBvention, not being quite aaturrd that the P.ad'cala would g him bo farther anxiety. I thought the I President wat anxiout to obtain views of all that galled on him. ' " 1 cannot uoderttand why the thing might not have' been finally settled to day. I do not tee what it to be gained or lott by deity. . Men's consciences are not to be made harder or softer, and it it not at all probable that Senators will know any more about the law and tha evidence on tbe 26th instant than tbey know to-day." The President wat pro ceeding, when Seeretary Seward wat announced, and Mr. Jobnton, witb much warmth, stepped toward the door to reoeive him. The formality of designa tion was observed between them, for tbe first forms were "Mr. Secretary" and Mr. President," but tboir greeting was very cordial and warm as they proceeded to talk of the result of the day. I left the room, and returned to the ball. Visitors at this time began to arrive in large numbers, and by four o'clock the rooms aod balls were more populous than they have been for months. , In the evening the Presinent was com pletely overrun with visitors- There was the greatest enthusiasm among bis friends.
