to an arrondissement containing more than a
hundred thousand, as in the rest of France.

Richmond, Deo. 23.—A ten seconds earth
quake, immediately followed by a briefer one,
was felt at 11 last night. There was much
alarm. The oscillations were south to north.
The shocks were felt in several parts of the
Richmond, Dec. 23.- The shocks felt here
last night were veritable earthquake shocks,
and no mistake. No comparison can be
made w ith any similar antecedent event, inas
much as it was the first experienced here
abouts. The statements ot persons residing
in different sections of the city coincide in
lhe main as to the vibrations, duration and
force ot the shocks.
A short time after the cessation of the
ahocks, the streets were alive with Irightened
and excited people. Many made their way to
the newspaper and telegraph offices to learn
lhe extent of the phenomena, while others of
more nervous temperament, remained in the
streets for hours, not daring to re-enter their
houses for fear of a repitition of the shocks,
bat the remainder of the night passed eff
without further disturbance.
To-day this remarkable epoch in Rich
mond's history was the general topic of corf
versation, it being discussed in all its phases,
each one having their own experience to re
late. Telegrams from various points in Vir
ginia report shocks similar to those felt here.
In some places a greater number of shocks
are reported than in others. None of the re
ports agree as to the direction of the oscilla
As far as heard from, shocks were not felt
south of Petersburg, west of Lynchburg,
north of Alexandria, nor east of City Point,
on James River. Along the Chesapeake and
Ohio Railroad shocks were lelt as far as
Staunton, 150 miles northwest of Richmond,
and on the Danville Railroad to the Southern
border of the State. The probability is that
lie shocks in Richmond were as severe as at
any other point, and no damage worth men
aaaing is reported from any other direction.

Memphis, Dec. 23.—The Committee of Gen

Loague by his late clerk, ex-Alderman Davis,

charge of failing to report to the Council the

taken, as is alleged, by his son, who was then
his clerk, and in Laving knowledge of the
same, and failing to have him punished.
In answer the Mayor submitted a state
ment, setting forth that when this defalcation

them, and left it with the Council and the
City Attorney, whose business it was to prose
oute the matter.

Cincinnati, Dec. 23.—A special dispalch to
the Enquirer, from St. Louis, says : "A mes
sage was received here to-day from President
Grant, in which he characterized as wholly
malicious and false the rumor that he had
expressed a willingness to consider an appli
cation for Joyce's pardon. He says that he
had no friends to favor in the whisky ring
prosecution, and the law shall have its course.
Joyce said to an interviewer to-day that the
evidence against Babcock would bo startling
and more damning than in either his or Mc
Donald's case, and that if the government
attorneys pressed the matter properly, ex
posures of other and more important mem
bers of the President's household, or, to use
Joyce's expression: " The entire White House
will be damned badly scorched, the President
not excepted."
San Francisco, Deo. 23.—A dispatch from
San Diego says a carrier arrived from San
Rafael, capitol of Lower| California, reporting
that the revolutionists had attacked the place,
and killed Gov. Yillagrena, and twenty-nine
others, and had taken possession of every
thing. The report needs confirmation.

Varieties Theater —Shakespeare's great
tragedy of "King Lear" was performed last
evening at this theater, with Mr. John Mc
Cullough in the title role. What is techni
cally known as the " business " of tbe play
was admirably done by Mr. McCullough; but
his voice, and, at times, his manner, were
somewhat in discord with the requirements
of the part. This gentleman is far above the
average in everything he undertakes, but he
is more peculiarly suited to the heroio style
[ 0 f acting than to the Lear's and Richelieu's
of the stage.
Fuli credit must be given him for his able,
and we may say masterly renditions of all the
characters in bis repertoire,and visitors to the
theater will assuredly witness none but well
acted parts during his stay with us. He is
unquestionably one of the ablest representa
tives of the legitimate drama now on the
stage, and we expect quite a treat from him
as "Othello" this evening.
Mr. Frank Mordaunt gave us an admirable
representation of Edgar in "King Lear;" his
acting of the scenes where madness was
feigned was very fine, and he deserves con
gratulation for his success.
"Katherine and Petruohio " will be given
at the Christmas matinee performance, with
Mr. McCullough in the latter part.
The Academy of Music.— Last night was
repeated at the Academy that beautiful spec
tacle of the "Ice Witch," to a full audience.
The spectators were delighted at the bril
liancy of the scenery and the dazzling tableaux
presented. The Segrist Midgets again won
the warm encomiums of the crowded house.
All the specialties were, as on the previous
performances, extraordinarily good. The
Christmas toy matinee, it is expected, will
show the largest attendance yet held in a thea
ter here.
The St. Charles Theater. —"Zip" was
giv n its last representation at this theater
last evening, and this evening Lotta's most
admired play of "The Female Defective" will
be put upon the boards. In this play the
little lady has splendid opportunity for the
display of that versatile genius which has
rendered her famous; and her acting in the
drama has fully won for her the plaudits of
all audiences before whom she has enacted it.
We are glad to note the fact that she is re
ceiving the support of our people. She is
deserving little actress, aud we wish her every
Globe Theater. —This theater was last
night crowded to witness the variety per
formance. Mtnager James Flynne deserves
credit in catering to the wants of his patrons.
All who want to have fun ought to go and see
Murphy, Adams, Warfield and Banks in the
negro act entitled " Ylrs Jones's Monkey,"
also "Louisiana Justice," in which Banks
played the role of Judge. The "Can-Can"
holds the boards for the after-piece, and will
continue, so during the holidays. There will
be a grand gilt matinee given on Saturday at
noon. Ladies admitted for twenty-five cents;
children free. They have also billed twelve
new stars for Monday night, in which all are
spoken of as flue in their line.

Welcome to the New Music Emporium —
We were interested and edified the other day
by a visit to the new musio house of our
frieDds, Blackmar A Finney. We found their
establishment, No. 174 Canal street, opposite
the Varieties Theater, literally filled with the
choicest and most elegant variety of pianos
and organs of well-known and justly re
nowned makers. Among them we noticed
pianos from the factories of Guild, Church A
Co., Boston ; R. Bradbury, and Nunns A Co.,
New York ; and Schoinacker, of Philadelphia.
It is mostly of note that the Schomacker is an
"administration" piano, having been seleoted
by the last three Presidents for the White
House. We also saw there the very pink of
pertection in the way of an upright piano—
the Rogers, which, to be appreciated, must
be seen. We cordially commend you to Black
mar A Finney.

There is not the slightest truth in the story

for it —Louisville Ledger,

Opening of the Crescent Hall.
Second to None in the World.
Last evening J. A. Walker, Esq., the pro
prietor of the new Crescent Billiard Hall, cor
ner of St. Charles and Canal streets,' threw
open its doors to the patronage of the public,
Prior to the general opening, the favored,
amongst them members of tbe press, and
ladies accompanied by escorts, were specially
invited to an inspection of his billiard pal
The clinking of champagne glasses, to
gather with the enthusiastic ejaculations of
those present, fitly attested the popularity of
Mr. Walker and his guests' appreciation of
his commendable enterprise in having pre
sented to our city the most beautiful billiard
hall in the world. We might dwell at length
upon the dazzling brilliancy of the scene pre
sented upon this specific occasion. Let it
suffice that the host exerted himself, and in
their short stay he may rest assured of having
found many well-wishers amongst the ladies
It has been with more than ordinary in
terest that the public has watched the gradual
growth of this buildiag, and some months
since when the last plank of what had been a
por.ion of the scaffolding disippeared, the
eye of the passer-by was attracted by its neat
finish. Built of lake brick and heavily stuo
coed in plaster, with a large veranda running
its entire length on either street, it stands an
ornament to the boulevards on which it cen
Its very appearance is a guarantee of
strength and >afety, and the unfortunate
accident which befell the old hall we may not
look for. The handsome stores which occupy
the frontage of the building on both thorough
fares, add much to the general set-off of the
exterior, and are a reminder of old times.
The main hall, which is entered from St.
Charles street, presents a pleasing appearance.
The walls and ceiling are paneled and tastily
painted color of ashes of roses, relieved by a
border of white. Prom the ceiling hang
rystal chandeliers, tho lights, when lit, re
flecting a brilliancy unequaled.
Nearest to the door aud prone against the
wall stands a cigar-case 12 by 15 feet, which
is truly a handsome specimen of cabinet
work; while the oyster counter, which, like
the cigar stand, is of oak aud walnut, is an
evidence of lavish expenditure.
Passing further back, we reach the bar
room, and, lookiug up, find ourselves reflect
ed in a glass 15 feet high by forty feet long,
covering entirely one side of this place of re
sort. Rich Egyptian cornices ornamented in
gold surround and partition off the glass,
while on the middle cornice is mounted the
monogram of the proprietor, J. A. YV.
In the facade of the cornice in alto relief
bunches of grapes lend a thorough finish to
this beautiful piece of workmanship.
Ttie other three sides of the room are fur
nished in crimson panels; the wainscoting
and counter being of oak aud walnut, the lat
ter highly designed. The bar, of oiled rose
wood, is literally resplendent with glassware.
This room is brilliantly illuminated, tbe gas
being supplied through rich canielabras.
The center pieces over the candelabras, which
are designed to represent bunches of fruit in
full relief, are masterpieces of workmanship
and art.
Like the old Crescent Hill, a smaller en
trance from Canal street can at all times be
used as a means of exit from the bar-room.
Large store and wine rcoms occupy the bal
ance of the lower floor. Mounting a broad
and graceful staircase, near the top of which
stands a bronze figure holding in her hand a
cluster of seven lights, we are ushered into
the billiard hall. The beauty of our sur
roundings is fully equaled by the surprise
and pleasure with whten wo turn to congratu
late our host. The dimensions of this room
do not vary from those of the old hall, but the
arrangements bespeak that comfort which was
formerly lacking. In height this room
measures 28 feet 4 inches. The ceiling in
relief is finished in pure white, with a heavy
oornice in Doric, the panels being orna
mented with small centerpieces.
The walls, of rose tint frescoed in Renaia -
sance, bordered by designs of the Florentine
school, add new laurels to the artists, Messrs.
Soulie A Philast. Between the large and
smaller divisions of the hall, heavy arches,
resting on composite pillars, add security and
grace to the room. Appropriate chandeliers
give the requisite light to sixteen Collender
American standard billiard tables. These
tables, 41x9, are elegant specimens of work
manship] and could not fail to satisfy even the
most fastidious professional. In panels at
the further end of the room, facing St.
Cfiarles street, rest five mirrors, live feet high
by tour feet eight inches wide, the reflected
rays of which heighten the general appear
ance of this beautitul place of resort.
Elegant shades, the color of the water of
the Nile, appropriately designed, lend a pe
culiar charm to the surroundings, protecting
the player from the heat of the sun, at the
same time furnishing a subdued and good
The effice, which faces the staircase, and is
placed against the wall between the arches, is
of rosewood, lit by a light in the hand of a
bronze statuette. From this point magnetic
bells communicate with each table, the latter
being provided with dumb watches, the bene
fits of which, as a cheek, will be fully appre
When we add that an elegant silver wa'er
cooler, together with other appropriate furni
ture, is not lacking, some idea may be formed
of the enterprise displayed by the energotic
Tfie C.ub Room, adjoining, Mr. Walker has
placed at the disposal of social gather
ings. A heavy Brussels carpet, miHt-gray,
and ornamented with crimson fern,covers the
floor of this little bijou, in the center of which
stands a billiard table, while easy chairs and
convenient tables abound.
The walls, of sea green like the main hall,
are highly frescoed in Renaissance and Floren
tine, the designs of which are most appro
In the oenter of the main panel, su pended
from a Chess Knight, hang two cornucopias.
These have evidently been upset, and falling
therefrom pell mell, dominoes, cards, chess
men, billiard balls, etc., seem to vie with
each other to heighten the general confusion.
A second design represents the Chess Q teen
upholding the palmetto leaf, in the lap of
which rest securely a choice selection of native
The third, a Chess Knight, is evidently a
pupil of Bacchus, for in his tenacious grasp
he clings to a liquor stand which contains the
nectar of the Gods.
Sporting pictures are hung around this
room, which, iu itsel*, is a sight worth seeing.
Retracing our steps we pass to the pool
room, whioh is in marked contrast to what
we have above described. It has an air of
business about it, and a glance at the face
of "Tom" is convincing proof of his de
termination to initiate the unsophisticated
into the mysteries of the high and low
Pictures of Gamier, Daly, and the Dion
brothers, are hung around. No decoration
is noticeable, but the purity of the wall
unsullied as yet by diconsolale heads, bespeak
that this is a new deal.
In closing, we are pleased to hear that Mr.
Charles Quaid will occapy his old praimnent
position. His popularity is unquestioned, for
he is a thorough gentleman.
Credit is due Mr. Fleming, who mounted the
gas fixtures, while the work of Conrad, the
painter, could not be harshly criticised. The gas
fixtures and statuary are from Mitchell,Yance
A Co., New York; the mirrors were imported
through Uter, S H. Purdy, Thirteenth street,
New York, furnished the mirror trame in the
bar room, while the carpet and matting were
also imported.
P. Ruch is deserving of more than passing
praise. His efforts bespeak a first-class work

A Family Conflict. —In a cottage house at
the comer oi Tchoupitoulas and Berlin streets,
there resides a large foreign family, known as
the Carrahers, who very frequently indulge
in what is generally termed a rough and tum
ble fight. The male portion of the family.
Owen Carraher, Sr., Owen Carraher, Jr., and
Peter Carraher, took their turn Wednesday
morning and made the dishes, plates, chairs
and tables fly around at a rapid rate for a
short time, when an old time battle took place.
They created such a violent noise that a police
man, who was five squares away, heard the
yells and cries, and made them move out into
the Seventh Precinct Station.
Attempted Arson. —John Chinn attempted
to set tire to Mr. J. Mertncovich's house, cor
ner of Camp and Thalia streets, on Wednes
day night at 9 o'clock. He was caught in the
act and turned over to Officer Bonnette, who
brought him to the Second Precinct Station.
Mr. Merencovich has every reason to believe
that the place was not set on fire through
malice. He knows Chinn, and thinks that he
is out of his mind.
Attempted Burglary. —About 1 o'clock
Thursday morning some unknown thief en
tered the premises of Mrs. Knight, 241 Char
tres street. The thief was discovered by the
police, and frightened off before he had time
to pick up what he intended to carry off.
The police entered the house in pursuit of
the thief, but tailed to capture him, as he had
made his escape by sliding down the gallery
posts to the street.
Police Notes. —A mule and cart were found
astray and sent to the Third District Pfiund
from the corner of Frenchmen and Esplan
ade streets.
Henry Davis was arrested Wednesday
morning at the corner of Peters and Esplan
ade streets, charged with larceny. The ar
rest was made at the solicitation of Charles
Gambling on the streets, disturbing the
peace, aud using obscene language, is the
list of complaints made on the books of the
Fifth Precinct Station against Wallace French,
John Burke and John Porter, known in the
district as levee loafers.
Collie Johnson, seven years old, got into
trouble Wednesday at tbe corner of St.
Claude and Esplanade streets. He was on
bis way home with a small basket filled with
dishes when a crowd of bad boys got after
him and kicked his basket out of bis bands,
breaking all the crockery. The boys ran ofl',
leaving him crying. At this time Special
Officer Kuutz Stolberger, with bis usual vim
and masterly courage, came up and wanted
to know why he, Collie, did not go home and
stop disturbing the peace. The little fellow
not knowing that he was face to face with a
metropolitan policeman in disguise, replied
that he would make as much noise as he
pleased and go home when it pleased him so
to do. Kuntz got his mad up then and
showed his authority by locking the infant up
in the Treme Station.
Franeis Cardie, aged 28 years, and a native
of Germany, and Thomas Wisely, aged 48
years, and a native of Ireland, were sent to
the Charity Hospital from No. 53 Delta street,
in a sick and destitute condition.
A mad dog was shot and killed Wednesday,
at the cornerof Chartres and Bienville streets.
A. Jacobs, a carpenter by trade, was taken
to the Third Precinct Station and locked up

Our Young Chinamen.
The installment of Chinese boys who recently
arrived in San Francisco will probably reach
Springfield to-day. This lot, thirty in number, is
tbe fourth and last installment of one hundred
and twenty picked Chinese youth who are sent to
this country to be educated, their stay here
being limited to fifteen years, in which time it is
expected they will acquire a thorough English
education. The boys will stop at the Haynes
Hotel, in Springfield, for a day or two, and then
be distributed by Mr. Yung Wing throughout
Massachusetts aud Connecticut. After receiving
a common school education they will he sent to
colleges or into the army and navy, according as
