Adventures of Qui Baum in Hew York. We have reference to Gus Baum now. Gus left here last week for New York, where he took a steamer for Liverpool. He had a large amount or fun In New York, and some or his friends round It out. He had three hundred and fifty dollars when he left here, and upon reaching New York he stepped Into the flamlngly-labeled office or a ticket broker for the purpose or securing his ticket and purchasing some gold. Just as he had accomplished his mission, and was sewing sixty. four golden pounds Into the breast-lining or his waistcoat, another young man entered, and after tbe broker had passed a few words with him he Introduced tbe stranger to Baum as a fellow-trav. eler, who was going in the same steamer with him. Baum was lonesome, and the Idea or having a fellow companion to help break the monotony of a long sea voyage brimmed him with delight. Everything passed on as smooth as the boy's side or a stair-oanlster, and the prospects or a happy trip loomed up before Baum with Increasing brightness. They went to tbe steamer and selected berths. They wandered off to a laa-er-beer garden and sipped lager. Tbey traveled from here te there, and rrom there to the other place, until at last the young, strange guide and fellow-passenger, with an expression of conscious self-neglect over shadowing his face, supped suddenly, drew from his pocket a lottery ticket and remarked that he had almost forgotten to go up to the lottery office and draw the amount of the ticket, which was two hundred and arty dollars. He wanted Baum to go with him. It was only a little distance, just a pleasant walk, you know, and Baum went. After some time they entered a large reom. and the lellow.tourlst stepped up to the clerk's desk, presented his ticket-check and drew that amount without trouble. Baum had always a morbid desire to get rich suddenly. He wanted to jump into affluence before bis friends knew It and sur prise tbem by sporting a gold-beaded cane and single eye glass. He made lnoulrles of his new made acquaintance, and received ready replies. The new-made acquaintance remarked, disinter estedly, of course, that lrhe would put up thirty pounds and east a certain number or dice he would double his money and perhaps make sev eral thousands. Visions of wealtb and high positions passed be fore tbe mental gate or our fellow-citlten, and, notwithstanding the solt screechlsgs or the still small voice within, he stated he staked his earn ings, threw the dice, and lost. He was amated, but the proprietor reassured him by remarking that In case he put up 20 pounds more he would have a capital chance, not only to win his money back, but also to draw a capital prize. The vis Ions commenced waltzing again across the hori zon orhls mental outlook, and he once more suc cumbed to tbe temptlngs or the knight or the green cloth and general swindler. He carefully piled his twenty pounds by the side or the thirty, gave a determined hitch to his coat-sleeve, seized the magic cup, rattled the ivory pieces for a mo ment, glanced at the Star-Spangled Banner as it hung from the walls for Inspiration, and then rolled the white chunks timidly out. "Lost again," said tbe sinner, with a cold smile, as he swept the pile through a trap-door In the table. " Lost again, I am sorry to say." Next morning, as Gus Baum sat alone In the stern of the ocean steamer, watching pensively the tall spires of the city, the beautiful land scape, and the magnificent harbor slowly disap pear rrom view, he tried to snake out why it was that Heaven. In Its mysterious providence, had created the Union, showered it with inexhaustible resources, crowned it with the finest natural scenery In the world, adorned It with beautiful cities, filled It with a wondrous prosperity, and then let the devil slip In with his lottery system and mar the whole thing. THE HABKEfHEH. The Case of Lancaster Btill Pending. Mr. Elliott, ror defendant, yesterday re sumed his .argument, before Justice Boblnson, In the ease of .tbe market company against Lan caster. He recapitulated the facts that he went over on Thursday, and reasserted that the market property belonged to tbe public, and that the charter of 1870 gave the company only certain franehlses,and read authorities to sustain tbe point He again quoted rrom the Hoffman ease, June. 1874, in which Judge Wylle Issued an order re straining the company from reselling stalls, and called attention to the interpretation which Judge Wylle had put upon the charter. He read from the testimony or Smith In that case to the effect that he (Smith) would not receive rent under the old sale, but took money ror the use and occupa tion of the property. He claimed that the charter did net authorize the collection of anything ex cepting rent. He urged that the company had violated tbelr franchises In deeding away the front land. He qnoted Ordway's testimony be fore the Senate Committee on Public Buildings and Grounds, in reference to the reduction ol rent effected by the District Legislature. General BIrney objected to the report as Incor rect, but was overruled. He quoted extensively from Senator Freltnghuyien's report on Senate bill tt?. In relation to the market company, in peaching the legality of the transfer of the front land, and stating that the company had violated tbe conditions or the grant in not erecting the front bulldinsr, and that the transfer or the prop erty precluded the possibility or their fulfilling tbtm. In conclusion, after quoting other authorities, he stated that the dealers dldnot seek redress for tbe money that they had paid unlawfully, but they were resisting an action brought against them, and did it because the company had gone beyond the privileges allowed by the charter. Mr. Elliott then submitted the case to the Court for tbe defendant. Mr. Bradley will close the case for the plaintiff on Monday at 2 o'clock. TEMAXE TJH10K BENEVOLENT SOCIETY. How Aged Are Given Homes. One of the oldest societies in the District of Co lumbia ror the relief of the poor and destitute Is, perhaps, the Female Union Benevolent Society of Georgetown, organized In 1839, and ever since that time in successful operation. Most or those who Inaugurated the work have passed away, but others are not wanting to build on their foundation, and through many difficulties the or ganization has been established upon a perma nent basis. A president, treasurer, secretary, four directresses, and twenty-four managers com pose the board. It Is the duty of the managers to call upon the residents or the town tor contribu tions to tbelr work, and upon the liberality or the response depends tbelr ability to relieve the bit ter wall on want, which so often comes to them for help. In addition to the sum of collections, the society receives the interest accruing from 420,000, donated to it years ago by Mr. w. W. Corcoran. In former times the corporate authori ties generally assisted tbe Institution, and in 1873-'74 tbe District government appropriated tsoo, which greatly aided It during the past win ter In relieving the unusual destitution. Assist ance hastbeen given to over two hundred families (always in food and fuel) to the amount of 43, 354.32. In connection with their work, the ladies of tbe society have purchased a comfortable bouse on High street, where a home is provided for twelve aged women, and they hope In time to offer shelter to a larger number. Each of the aged women are provided with a room to herself, and all the comlorts or life are given her. The ladles of tbls institution have been aided by lib eral contributions, which have cheered them to persevere In their efforts to pay a debt upon the property, now nearly canceled. It Is hoped that liberal hearts may be moved to help these ktnd ladles In their labors, rememberlag that be who glvetb a cup or water ror the Master's sake shall shall In nowise lose his reward. KOBE LITIGATION. Another Suit Against a Building Association. Mr. Woodbury Wheeler has filed a bill In equity for Mathias U. Hunter against the Metro politan Building Association for an Injunction and an account. The plaintiff claims that on tbe 30th of September, 1873, he obtained from de fendants l,27e, out of which there was returned 1337. for which he received no consideration; that to secure the payment he gave a deed to secure the payment or two dollars on each share ad vanced on, with fines and forfeitures, until the association shall close, or the return of the money advanced to him. He alleges that although he has thirteen shares standing la his name an officer or the association has taken it on himself to pur chase shares on his account, without his sanction, and ror said shares he has not obtained one cent or credit, although he has paid 1220, and it has been absorbed and transferred to tbe benefit of the association. He charges that in January the secretary lurnlshed him an account, by wblen tke 1220 dees not appear tube credited to him, but that after deducting $303 he hat been assessed 1196.40 for dues, (98 .or advances, and (61.84 ror fines, making a total of (356.24, besides two Items of lit and (6.M not classified; and the secretary Is kind enough to Inform him that (1,359.74 It re- 3ulred to settle advances on fourteen shares to anuary 21. IS, while the sum really advanced was only (973, of which he bas paid on account (220. He lurtber charges that he was deceived by the secretary into signing the deed. A tempo rary restraining order was made. THE BOAEDJOP HEALTH. Vital Statittict-Bcutine Business. The.Board of Health met at their rooms last evening.

THE OFTAL DEPOT. An Awful Place it is So the People of that Yicinitff Think An Indignation Meeting on the Subject. A meeting of the taxpayers oLNortheast Wash ington was held last night at Burke's school room, on H street, between First street and Dela ware avenne northeast, to take further action In reference to the offal depot now being erected upon the Government reservation at the Intersec tion or H street. First street and Delaware ave nue. The building, which will be about 200 feet in length, Is being erected by the contractors ror removing dead animals, night-soil, etc., as a place or deposit ror the same while awaiting transporta tion An the railroad to the place where It it per manently dumped and made into fertilisers. Long before the hour of meeting the sidewalk! and street In the Tleinlty of the school-house were crowded with men, women and children; the wild est excitement prevailed, and the women were in no way backward in giving their opinions. About 8 o'clock the door was opened and soon the room, which would hold about one hundred persons, was filled, and on the outside were more than this number eager to OBTAm ABJCITTAIICB. The meeting was called to order by Mr. Lang Told, and Mr. Burke acted as secretary. After some exciting and uncomplimentary re marks by a Mr. Shea, Mr. Maupin asked what steps had been taken to prevent the erection or the depot, or in other words ror the status or the case. The people were anxious to know. The Chair replied that he was In the dark. He knew that papers were out ror signatures, and further that an Injunotlon against the erection or the building had been dissolved by the court. Those who called the meeting were not present. At this point three or more began speaking, and all that could be distinguished from their re marks was condemnation or Gen. Babcook ror bringing a nuisance Into the Nineteenth district. They were peaceable citizens, and he has allowed rotten cows, &&, to be brought Into their midst to create a plague. Mr. Shea again addressed the meeting In his excited style. cALVwrsa. Mr. Maupin advised calmness. He opposed using public grounds ror private purposes, and claimed tbat the superintendent had no right to give the ground to private parties. He sug gested that a committee or property holders be appointed to represent the facts to the District authorities and General Babeock. A little fracas occurred at this juncture In the baek part of the room, but did not last long. Mr. Manpln, continuing, suggested that the tax-payers in the vicinity take the matter In hand, and he thought It would be better to give the chairman time to select the committee in order that good men might be chosen. A motion was made that a committee of ten be appointed. Adopted. Unknown to any person John Pope Hodnethad entered the room and walked up to the side of the president's table, and, without invitation, began addressing tbe meeting. He went through with his usual harangue, using the same ungram matlcal phrases, until patience ceased to be a vir tue, and the Chair was obliged to call him to order and told him the meeting was hot cat.t.hd to hxab abuses heaped upon the District authorities and the late Board of Public Works, but to devise meant to prevent the erection ef the depot on the opposite side ef the street. Hodnett then proceeded in a somewhat mod ified tone, but soon got on into his old strain. Mr. Manpln Interrupted him by taylng the meeting was called for particular purposes. Tke court had decided that tbe depot was not a nuis ance and removed the injunction, and It wai the desire that some means be resorted to In order tbat the depot might be removed. The violent language or the gentleman wonld sot do. Hodnett became greatly cooled down, and, In fact, became exceedingly meek, and talked ror a while In a mild tone, but all of a sudden he went off in his unintelligible talk again, and, not knowing wbat better to say, asserted that he had heard that an effortwould be made to TXAR DOWH TBS BCILDIXO. He was present to tell tbem not to do IL A Voice. "This is the first I heard of It. We are law-abiding citizens." Hodnett. "lean name the man who told me." Cries of "Tell his same," "He Is a damned liar." "This is a put-up Job or yours. Pope." The Chair asked Hoonett to Jell the man's name who made such a statement. Hodnett studied a moment, but without giving the desired Information continued speaking, and, finding his remarks were not having at good ef. feet at he supposed they would, weakened very rapidly, and said he did sot call those In author ity thieves, but those who had gone out. This caused a very faint applause, which gave him courage, and he exclaimed, at the top of his voice, "I do not take baek a word that I (aid; I have the worktngmes at my friends." The Chair here asked that some person take hi! place. Great confusion followed, but so person responded, and Hodnett continued in the most violent langua ge, and alter he round tbat his au dience was becoming disgusted with fclm ceiled and lelt the ball. The chairman again requested that some gen tleman preside over the meeting In his place and appoint the committee, ir those present thougbt Hodnett could do more for them than he all right, ir It depended ipon Hodnett the depot would never be removed. Mr. Maupin advised his hearers to repudiate Hodnett, as he was a demagogue. The meeting then adjourned without accom plishing the least good. THE CASE OF FBENSLEY. His Examination Before the Folics Court Yesterday. John L. Frensley, messenger In the Treasury Department, had a hearing before Judge Snell at tbe Police Court yesterday, relative to the larceny or elihty-flve dollars from the redemp tion bureau or that Department. Mr. B. Q. Un derwood, receiving teller, swore that upon miss ing the mosey he acquainted Mr. Gravel or the fact and took the precaution to register all the nous. He then notified the secret service bureau of the loss. Witness gave a description or the manner of doing business at the counter. Cross-examined: Could sot tell the denomina tions or the notes missed, but could swear to the amouat. The money was lost between the first and last or December, when he commenced to register the notes received. During the month of December he was In tbe habit of asking Frens ley to stop at bis counter during hit temporary absence, (There are tome thirty women In his reom constantly during office hours. Frensley was frequently charged with theduty of carrying both now and old mosey back and forth through the building. A. L. Drummond, detective, testified to a visit to Frensley's house on tbe 4th or last January and not finding him at home. Saw him after wards on the street and followed him to the house, and entered without tbe prisoner's knowledge; watehed him through an open space In the boards. An anonymous letter bad previously been sent him, warning him that he was suspected or hav ing things In his house belonging to tho Depart ment, and advising him to get rid or them. Wit ness saw him read the lotter, when he went to his trunk ana punea out an express tetter ana lighted a match and set fire to the letter and threw It In bis stove. Afterwards arrested him and searched his premises; round several articles or stationery, and Is his pocket $70 or new green backs, which he claimed to be his month's pay. The arrest was made on tbe pretext or hit being engaged In the counterfeit business; charged him with burning the envelope,whes he could give no satisfactory reason ror doing so, only that he bad received It from Virginia by express; on Inquiry at the Adams express office ascertained that suoh a package had been passed. Miss Mattle Yeatman, who boards at the same house the prisoner does, testified that on the 6th or January last Frensley gave her a elgar-box and an envelope, which he said contained money, and requested her to take charge of It for him, alleging as a reason for such action that ha was frequently solicited for the loan of money, and did hot wish to keep any about his person. Frens ley afterwards called for the envelope. She KftTO it to him, asd he opened It and took (15 out of It, as he said, and returned It to her unsealed. She counted the tontenti tad found (85; some of It wss mutilated currency. CrouBxaznlnatlon: witness Is employed In the Treasury; did not have possession of the box half an hour; the package she kept three or four days; did sot examine what the box contained. Mrs. Bennett, who lives In the same bouse as the preceding witness, testified to seeing the envelope opened ond the old notes, but could not remember the amount; the money was replaced In the envelope, which was sealed. The further hearing of the case was postponed until to-day. THE GBAND ABMY. Beiolntion: of Thanks to The National Bo- publican. At tbe regular meeting of John A.

Tbey will certainly receive the worth or tse admission, which is oat twenty.flve cents for a single ticket, asd fifty cents for a season ticket- It Is not intended to confine this entertainment to a literary feast, for the supper-room will furnish a feast or good things, and at the Washington Irving booth, representing the Inn to which Bip Van Winkle returned after his little vacation up the Hudson, can be had strawberries and cream, under the supervision or Bip himself, assisted by some or the Dutch girls or jshom Irving speaks.

The Hatlosal Theatre "The Big Bonanza." A late as generoui ai Its name suggests, and more genuine than the speculation It portrays, at tends the play of "Tho Big Bonanta" in Wash ington. Tbe audiences have gradually Increased until last night every seat waa occupied, and ap preciation teems commensurately increased. Old and young enjoy this play, the reality or Its do mestic situations, and its easy and natnral dia logue. So much hearty laughter has seldom re. paid a company's efforts. Mr.Harklns exhibits a fine and proper sense or the June mlllcn he Is obliged to take In his rott ot rather or a family, merchant and speculator, and master or a house ef wealth and hospitality. Hit of fan never loses Its proper dlgnitali, and his love of freedom does net degenerate Into the least coarseness, and hit It a One, manly presentation or a manly charac ter. Each gentleman seems wonderfully elected by his physical peculiarities to effectually fill the demands of bis own nil. Miss Sara Jewettjassumeshe character or the bright, unsophisticated and favored daughter of wealthy and indulgent parents. Her naivttt and sparkle or reeling seem scarcely assumed, but her habit. The admirable venality ef Miss Alice Grey renders her assumption of the rote of Mrs. 'Csdwallader perfect and most agreeable. Miss Nina Varlan has made a very fine Impression in her favor. The domestic scenes er the Profes sor's family are Intensely enjoyed; the ready gullibility or the old gentleman, his profound Ignorance or tho necessities or actual life, and his Inexpressible exasperation at the removal or his furniture, and extravagance adopted by his am bitious wife and daughter, are to the life. The dialogue between the two gentlemen. Cadwalla dcr. Is throughout touched with excellent humor. The drama Involves no scheme or romance or power, but remarkable truth to the hourly lire and business peculiarities of the present Is so dressed In comprehensibly-pointed wit and humor tbat the play Is, bere and in New York, a grand success. Tbls afternoon and evening afford our citizens their only opportunities to witness It, The matinee performance will be a grand .affair, and early attendance is desirable In the matterof procuring seats. In the evenlngwa shall have to old tbe Firth Avenue Company good bye, but we hope they will soon favor us with another visit. Why cannot they be Induced to come en and give us a week ol old English comedy. Pord'i Opera-Honse Mrs.Eonsby-Camille. The announcement that a long-favored play, "Camilla," wai to be performed at Ford's, with the beautiful Mrs. Bousby In the rote of the lovely and wronged heroine of Dumas' popular romance, assisted by an actor much admired here In past times, Mr. Frank Mordaunt, attracted a house large in numbers and or much Intelligence. It Is long since that victim of a lire's vicissitudes, Matilda Heron, won a great repute by the splendid passion and Intense pathes with which tne portrayed tbe love and sorrows or that excep tional creation, Camllle, and since her triumphs In the role many have essayed to produce It with equal power and railed. Mrs. Routby't excellent gifts of personal beauty, perfect physical grace, and a voice always sweet and effective, ease In its strongest and most trying use, fit her spe cially for a touching rendition or Camllle. The delicacy or her ibeauty.'so peculiarly ap pealing under the Influence of strong sentiment, tbe natural altitudes asd tenderness of voice are all brought Into powerful conjunction or effects In the representation, and It Is apparent that Mrs. Bousby's Idea or the character and rate er Camllle reaches the very utmost limit or pas sion and Its artistic expression, and that her rendition in certain passages mast be tbe result of; great Jlnttie In acting, or, more probably, the result or extreme dramatic feeling and ex cited sympathy. No one could more thoroughly look the eeautiml, romantic, devoted, suffer ing character whloh Dumas created In Camllle than does Mrs. Bousby throughout the P'y; yet it is not a role as desirable for tbe ex ercise orher best dramatlo gifts at Is her Eliza beth, in which she fills every situation with com plete and appropriate acting. Mrs. Bousby was handsomely supported by Mr. Mordaunt, as Armand. This afternoon Mrs. Bousby will re peat Camllle, and In tbe evening elose her en gagement with ",'Twixt Axe and Crown." The Madrigal Boys. The Madrigal Boys, who recently visited this city, are now In New York taking a week'! rest before accepting other engagements which are offered to them. They recur with much satisfac tion to their sojourn in Washington and to the kind cordiality with whlcb they were welcomed by the Washington audiences. Thelrvlstts to the President, to General Spinner at the Treasury, to tbe Orphan Asylum, and to Mount Vernon, are among tbe most pleasant recollections or their stay at the National Capital. We understand that the troupe, oa their next tour, will sing entire such popular operas as "Trovatore," "Sonnan bula," "Bohemian Girl" and -'Marltane," thus slvlnar the musical nubile a still hlrher Idea or the talent! or these accomplished little vocal ists. The Theatre Comiqne. There will be a grand matinee at the Comlque this afternoon. It is the last one, and a special effort will be made to please the women and children. The full programme as rendered In the evening will be performed. At night the highly favored patrons of the Comlque will enjoy their last night ot this season, and a rousing entertain ment will be given. Next week the summer stage and sew faces. The Avenne Theatre. A very spirited programme may be expected at the Avenne theatre to-night. The long and richly-varied bill will be presented In fine style. It Is the last night or several of the favorites. Next week Manager Bauer has a great variety or entirely sew and powerful attractions. The career of the Avenue is onward and upward. DETECTIVE WOBK.
