ONE KOBE TJKFOKTXJHATE.
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
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
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 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
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.
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 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
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
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
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
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

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 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
