The Grand Ann) Gazette and National G'tmi d man lor January contains tho following deserved notice of a highly distinguished officer: "Much sur prise and regret is expressed at the retirement of Gen. Horatio C. King from the position of Judge Advocate General of the Mate of New Yoik, bis administration of the office baring received the warmest approval. Many grave and Important questions hat o arisen, and his decisions hae been commended tor their Intelligence, clearness, and convincing force. Wo learn from high authority that not one has been disapproved or set aside. It Is not understood generally that Gen. King was not an ardent aspirant for reappointment, but. on the other band, declined to allow any influence to be used In his behalf. Nor Is It a close secret that bo has nigher aspirations, should an opportunity be made for the appointment of a Judge Advocate General of the Army. 1 lie anomalous condition of this office Is being freely discussed by the newspapers. Gen. hwalm was found guilty of offenses by a coort martial, the gravity of which President Arthur tnongnt justinea nisuismtssai irotn tne service, lie sent the proceedings back to the court two or three times, and at last reluctantly approved the final eentenco of suspension for twclt e years on balf pay. This extraordinary decision practically retires (Jen. hwalm for life on an average pay of about 13,004 a year, for wnlch bo renders the Government no equivalent.

King ts most favorably mentioned in connection with this position. His excellent record as a soldier, his legal ability, bis long familiarity with military law, of which bo Is an acknowledged authority in this btate, his personal popu'arlly, bis prominence in connection with military affairs, and acquaintance In the Regular Army, it Is believed make blm peculiarly avaT'able as well an acceptable to the officers of the Armv.manv of whom.

I.., tbe great base ball commentator, in lost Sunday's capital discusses several matters from a standpoint that Indicates that he bss bad bis feath ers rubbed the wrong way. M e would advise him to keep his temper, and In dlscnsslng sporting mat ters not to let personal grievances cloud bis Judg ment. Ills attempt to belittle tbe manager of tbe National club and injure bis business Is a wasted effort. Mr. Scanlon.the veteran, has done too much for base ball in this District to be robbed of tbo credit that Is due, and which Is accorded hltn by the thousands who have enjoyed.the sport he has given them by any such move as contemplated by the Capital's base ball amateur. Barclay, the favorite second-baseman of the cham pion St. Louis Club, Is going to get himself in troub'e. He asked for bis release from on de Ahe In order to play with the Baltlmores, but before ob taining It thePittsburgsmadehlman otter similar to Baltimore. He gave bis promise to both, and kept bis word with Pittsburg. Barnle, of tho Haiti moreB, is kicking bard, and threatens to bring tbo affair before the Arbitration Committee. It bas been learned tbatmore lots have been sold in the sub division of Capitol Park, and that early in the spring thepartlescoutemplateerectlngbulldlugs. If suitable grounds cannot be obtained lu that section again, what's tbe matter wltb Athletic I'aiu The National League will bold a special meeting on Saturday ot ibis week In New York. The lead log question that will arise, will be as to whether the League will play the next season through with six or eight clubs, a decision tbe patrons of the game here will await with a good deal of interest. If the League agrees to play with eight teams, the other city selected besides Washington will then be named lor tbe first time officially. Many think and hope It Is Pittsburg, while others claim that that city will not forsake the American Association, and that the League will have to take up cither Milwaukee or Indianapolis. Washington folks would rather see Pltuburir admitted, as thev would then havn n chance to secure some of tbe many available players now under contract with ihat team. Bets are being being made here that tbe League will hate tight clubs, and in some cases odds are olfered. Dunlap received over t3,C00 last reason from the SU LouU League team. He said he would refuse to play If the League stuck to the 1 2,ooo limit. He signed nevertheless lately, and now bis associates Sij It was In black and white that more than t:,000 was to be tbe salary of the season. Affairs In base ball circles were rather quiet here last week, as all concerned are awaiting the labors of ihe Lesgue meeting of Ihe present week. The Louisville papers say that Joe Oerhanlt sold bis uniform shirt to Manager Muirlo ftr 1750, and then signed a contract for 1 2,000. The story goes for what it Is worth, at Uerbsrdt told 'ItiBbiMuv Hehild reporter some time ago that he wouldn't play If bis salary was reduced, and Joe generally means what he eats.

' AMUSEMENTS, TS70 QiTQtTI Messrs. Hobson and Crane, hitherto known aa the lightest ot gvy comedians, have suddenly placed the whole critical world under obligations by their grand revlv al of Shakepeire's "Comedy ot Errors," which Is the frame of their wonacrtul and mlrth.provoklng assimilation to each other as the two Dromfo. This spectacular production was described In these columns at tho time of Its first nights In New York City, but In view of Its arrival at Albaugh'a Grand Opera House this week It Is seasonable to repeat what was then said. "Tho Comedy ot Errors," one tbe mighty poet's t ux tlVni it, oilers tome diffi culty to those who would faithfully present It on tho stage. More than his other comedies It boldly defies time, space, and probability in Its mad fun and poesy. lis anachronisms are skillfully overcome in the present Instance by assuming Its action to be at the time when Christianity bad Just reached Ephe sns, thus affording vivid contrasts between tho gorgeous worship of Diana of the Kpttcslans and tbe primitive rock-cut church ot the early Chlrstlans. These opportunities are improved to tho utmost in scenery, costumes, processional and other effects. In fact, there is a whole volume of history condensed Into an evening's entertainment. The special features are too many to describe In detail. Messrs. Hobson and Crane dlplay their comic powers In the highest degree as Ihe twin Zrontfo.. Tho support- lig company Is one ot exceptional strength. .110ge1ncr mis win oe one ot tne memorable weeks ot tho dramatic season. The Boston Ideal Opera Company, now under tho management of Mr. V. II. Foster, delighted large audiences at the New National Thoatre last woek by the presentation ot "Glralda," "Victor, the Blue Stocking," and several more familiar operas In the same perfect style as usual. It ts Indeed grattfvintr to find that this splendid organization will be main tained in the future as In the past, and that by the Introduction of younger singers, both as principals and chorus, It gives promise ot Indefinite continu ance. It will probably stand as the goal of tbe ris ing singer's ambition and the exponent of tie best that America bas allalued in musical culture. By the engagement of Miss Zelle ile Lussan and M1m Agnes Huntington, Manager Foster bas shown tbe right spirit of unstinting liberality and enterprise, and a generous public will continue to reBpondto his efforts. Great Interest attached to the appear ance here of these new acquisitions, and both at tained a decided trlumpt. Miss de Lussan Justified all the enthusiastic things that have been said about her, and which It la needless to repeat. Shedoea not astonish at the first entrance by v-oca! fireworks or other teats, but grows upon the audience through the perfectly artistic ensemble of her gifts. She it not only a favorite and something of a prodigy now, bnt gives token of rapid progress with added experi ence and a capability for granderoperas. As she Is ot dramatic mezzo-sopranos, so Is Miss Huntington of contraltos, the rising star in tho United Statea. Mr. W. H. Clark, the new basso of the Ideals, pos sesses a deep and powerful voice and an effective stage presence. The established favorites, who make the Ideals seem like a home company hero, were never In better voice and spirit than last week. Tbo engagem:ut caused regret only by being so short. It should be renewed at an early date. The special feature of the Salvint engagement at Albaugh's Grand Opera House lost weekwos the production for the first time here by this great trage dian of Shakespeare's " Corlolanua." It is gene rally said that ShakespeareXplays lose some of their effect upon the imagination when they are placed on the stage instead ot being left to the reader In bis study. In tbe present case the process was reversed. "Coriolanus"wllI always remain a greater tragedy to those who have seen It Interpreted by the genlns of Salvlnl. M. Taine, In bis rather belittling crit icism, would have us believe that Calus .Varclus Is after all only one of the Englishmen of tbe Eliza, bethan age, hasty, proud, choleric, and quickly con verted by slight opposition into a raging madman, a type which Is repeated In the father of Juliet, in Lenr, and other characters. Salvlnl makes u see bun as Shakespeare drew blm, the Roman of the ruder days of that republic, proud of hla rank, of bis city, of bis prowess, "too proud to be vsln," and infinitely disdainful ot tbe plebeian rabble, yet on the other hand careless of applause, capable ot magnanimity and tenderncsa al most oeyonu tne mitral. This conception, consist ent throughout, is enriched by the great actor with countless touches of beauty, and ends In a skillfully managed death scene, that leaves on the mind the impression of having witnessed an actual murder. Tbe public do not object to paying double prices to see Salvlnl, but why should they be called upon to suueriroma supporting company bo poor and in effective, with a few possible exceptions, us that which now mars his efforts? Coming so Boon after the different example of Irving, and Salvlnl's own excellent Italian company of 1573 being remembered this Is rather hard to bear. ' The management of tho New National Theatre is to bo congratulated upon having secured for Ihia week the accomplished actress and beautiful woman, tanny uavenporu She will appear to morrow night in her greatest success, "Fedora." It will be presented with the entire cast of the original company, Including thegraccf ul and talented actor, Mr. Robert B. Mantel), who will assume bis famous role of Loris. Tbo plot of Ibis play Is startling throughout. Tbe Princess Fedora, ayoung Russian widow, is engaged to a Russian noble named I laaualr, who is murdered, It Is supposed, by a Mhlllst. I'ttiora determines to be revenged and suspects fcorfs Ipanoj) of being the murderer. She follows blm to Paris, and In order to elicit from him a confession of bis guilt leads him to fall in love wltb her, but soon finds that she on her part reciprocates the passion of the Muscovite, yet none the less she plots for his destruction. Lorls finally confesses to having killed Vladimir because he mls.cd his wife, and ledora, lindlng that she has been deceived by her betrothed, rejoices in the fact of bis having been properly punished, and loves Lorls all the more wildly. Her plans and schemes for revenge have, howev cr, periled the life of her lover, who baa been denounced as a spy, ami as well ot his entire family, all being accused of being NihlllBta. Torn by re morse, reaura takes polnon, and In despilr and agony confesses tbo truth and wins from Lorls a forgiveness that soothes her dying moments. Mr. Gas Williams, tbe popularcomedian, opens to morrow tor a week at Ford's Opera House, when our people will have an opportunity to witness his funny and entertaining play, "Ob, WbataNlght!"

The unvarying popularity of Mr. Gas Williams baa aided the attraction of anew piece never before seen In Cincinnati bearing the strange title, 'Oh, Whit a Night!' The play Is fall of laughable plot and counter-plot, anil the characters got so thoroughly mixed that surprising situations follew each other very closely.

I bad been prepared for something of a bore, but witnessed a really earnest and thor oughly tragical personation, especially In the latter acts, and although I have seen Juliets of more win ning, girlish ways. Miss Mather's waa onoofthe most vivid I have ever seen. At times I seemed back in tbe period of Rachel and the Italian, Greek school built up on Alderl'a plays. Where Mather takes the potion Is a piece of realistic acting nobody else can do. Adelaide Neilson, in all her sweetness, could not do It. Besides, Miss Mather Is betterlook log than her pictures. I had a box seat and observed that the nearer she came theraore perfect a physical creature was there. Her bust, arms and feet, waist and face, are all pleasing; she has a small mouth, a nose of the rabbit-Roman kind, a brow of the Greek woman's propertlans, and teeth which the oyster might blto his sweetheart with. She rouges a little too far. Her pronunciation Is at times a trifle west ern, or country-like, but the words come from a full, bold splrit George Mfted Toicmend In Hoston Globe, January 3.

She is confident, however, that ahe can get rid of her superfluous flesh, and aa her voice la un impaired bae believes that she can regain her old place In popular favor.
