In response to Mr. John Donovan's
bill of irjunotion served yesterday to re
strain Mr. John Johnson from entering
the office of Mayor, Mr. Johnson denies
that be is ineligible and cannot take the
seat. In onawer to special interrogatories
he says :
'First la answer to tbe brat specific
interrogatory, respondent ssya that be
was barn in tbe county et Antrim, in Ir.
Land, on the 5th day of September, lo7b,
Second In answer to the second spe
cific iuterrogatory, he ays that he emi
grated to the United Slates, with bis
father, in July, 1838, when he was nearly
twelve years of age. He first landed at
Montreal, in Canada, and proceeded from
thence to the oily Pittsbnrg, in Penn
sylvania, in Ju'y, IK38, and Irnm thence
he went with his tatfaer to Columbiana
county, in the State of Ohio, where he
resided nntu 10l, wueu, in me auiuuiu
of that year, be removed to the city of
Memphis, where he bas since camion
Third In answer to the third specifio
interrogatory, he answers tbat his father
was a native of Ireland ; that be did emi
grate to the United States in July, 1S38,
at the time aad in tbe manner fated in
the foregoing answer, bringing with bim
this respondent as before stated. Re
spondent's father, Thomas Johnson, did
become a naturalized citizen of the said
Uoited States on the 2d of September,
1843, as will appear by the certificate of
the Court of Common Pleas of the oonnty
of Columbiana, and State of Ohio, here
with filed as exhibit "A" to this auswer.
Fourth Iu tnswer to the fourth spe
cifio interrogatory, respondent says tbat
be bas become a naturalized citizen ot
tbe United States by force and virtue of
the 4th section of the act of Congress of
1802 (passed 14th of April, 1802), which
provides, among other things, "that the
children of persons duly naturalized un
der any of the laws of the United Stales,
being nnder tbe age of twenty-one years
at tbe time of their parents being an nat
uralized, shall, if dwelling in tbe United
States, beonaidered as citizens of tbe
United States, and by virtue of other
statutes and laws of tbe United States."
Respondent says tbat bis father was a
free white man, who was naturalized at
the time and place above stated, when
the respondent was about seventeen years
of ago, and when tbe respondeat was
dwelling with his father in the United
States, and by this means he became by
the express provisions of law a natural
ised citizen of the Uoited States, and en
titled to all the rights and privileges of
citizenship without any act oa his part
whatever. Respondent having become
a citizen in tbe manner above stated, bas
not, of course, any written evideoce of
Fifth In answer to the fifth specific
interrogatory, respondent Bijs that da
ring tbe late civil war his sympathies
and interests were all enlisted on behalf
of the Sontbern people, with whom he
had resided for many years and to whom
he was sinserely attached by many sacred
ties and memories, and when th city of
Memphis was invaded and captured by
the United States military forces on tbe
Cth of June, 1862, he felt compelled to
remain at his home in Memphis, and net
to go into the Southern lines, but be re
tained and cherished in his heart all of
his sympathies for his people, and fer
vent hopes for the suocees of the South
ern cause. After tbe capture of the city
of Memphis tbe military authorities in
oommand of the United States forces be
gan to publish orders requiring the
people of Memphis, nnder threatened
penalties, to take oaths of alle
giance to the United States, and
finally, undor such orders, said authori
ties undertook to organize a military
force in Memphis, composed of tbe citi
zens, called tbe "Memphis Militia," and
in tbe enrollment of men in said military
force certain other oaths were exacted
of the said militia. These oaths, as pre
scribed by said authorities, were very
stringent, pledging allegiance to the
United States, renouncing all allegiance
and sympathy to and for tbe Confeder
ate States, and were in very many re
spects very obnoxious to the people of
the South who sympathized with the
Confederate cause. Tbe respondent,
under these circumstances, being unable
to leave Memphis, and feeling a just
and unconquerable repugnance to tbe
taking of said oaths aad to enlisting in
any military force which waa arrayed
against the Southern armiea, he, after
due conaideration and with much reluc
tance, instead of swearing falsely in com
plying with said ' military orders,
mad au affidavit belure Hume
F. Hill, a United 8tates Commis
sioner, on 29'h May, 18G3, (a true copy of
which is filed as exhibit B to thia answer),
upon which, after many delays and by
eatside influences, he procured from the
Consul of Great Britain, then residing
at Su Louis, papers protecting him as a
subject of Great Britain, with which he
sought to exempt himself from military
service acd from the order requiring tbe
taking of said odioos oaths. Respon
dent states that Ibe Counsul who issued
said papers acted noon the disctrine ol
tbe Government of Great Britain, which
holds its citizens to perpetual allegiance,
and adopts the maxim, " once a citizen
always a citizen," and oa this account
and by other influences these papers
were granted Without requiring the usual
prerequisites in such esses. Respondent
files the exhibit "B" as the evidence
npon which ba procured said papers, and
states that tU papers thus obtained
have been lost or mislaid so that
be cannot God the same. He further
says that while this act may not be sus
ceptible of being justified upon moral
grounds, yet he claims that the state
ments made in said affidavit are true in
substance, and bis conscience is satisfied
with tbe reflection that if by this act be
was guilty of any moral wrong (which he
does not admit), his alternative nnder
the circumstances of duress with which
he was surrounded, would have been in
finitely worse in a moral point of view.
Respondent is advised, and insists that
before tbe 2)th of May, 1C3, he vas a
citizen of tbe United States, and that this
act did not affect bis rights as a citizen,
and that no act of bis under the circum
stances while he remained within the
United Slates conld by any means affect
his rights as a citizen.
Respondent's offense bat this extent
and no more, and while he confesses the
same ia this solemn manner, he adopts
the language of him " who spoke as never
man spake," let him that is without sin
in this cause cast the first stone at bim.
And having fully answered, reepondent
prays tbat the injunction heretofore
granted in this cause be dissolved, aad
be dismissed with coats, eta-

Clran'a derma n Opera.
From the Louisville Commercial.)
A large, fashionable and appreciative
cudience greeted theseeond performance
of this troupe at Weiaiger Hall last
night. Mozart's great master-piece,
The Magic Flute, was performed. All
our expectations were not only fully
realized, but far surpassed.
Tbe performance last night was all
and more than could be expected. Tbe
orchestra has. with the great musical
talent of Mr. Van Ghel, been reinforced,
and under his careful training perfectly
electrified the audience, which was shown
by the overture, which was not only
acceptably bnt very creditably rendered.
Of the soloists we have bnt one opinion.
They were all very good, and each of the
many difficult parts of the opera was very
well rendered. Mr. Habelmao, as M Ta
meno," was splendid. His great and beau
tful voice has the same metal and more
strength than in former days. He re-established
himself at once in the hearts of
all his hearers- Madame Frederici sur
passed herself in the melodious strains
of Pamena's role. We regretted that tbe
pribcipal solo in the finale was omitted
by her. Iu Miss Jackson we were made
acquainted wiih a young artiste of supe
rior quality. Her voice is pure, and for
one so new to the opefa, it unusually fine.
Madame Dziubasaog the part of Papa
gen a with great elegance. Mr. Femes
also aacg well, bnt might have omitted
his " aide speeches."
Mr. Wesalich'i "Sarastro" wat to
p:rb, and in his great basso solos be wat
the recipient of long continued and de
served applause. The choruses, es
pecially in tbe third act, were very fine.
Through the courtesy of Mr. Daffield,
who was kiod enough to transfer some of
bia beat musicians to strengthen the or
chestra during the remainder of the
opera season, Mr. Grau is enabled to give
his operas with tbe necesaary instru
mental accompaniment, wbicb wat not
