There will be no perform ance at this theater this evening in deference to the display of the Knights of Momos, but an extra matinee will be given to day at noon, when the admirable and favorite comedv drama of "Parted, or The Bank Failure," will be repeated for probably the last time. On Friday and Saturday evenings Mrs. G'han fran will be seen as Dora, one of her finest parts. On Monday Mr. F. S. Chanfrau will open a short engagement in his great charac ter of Sam. The St. Charles Theater. —Mr. Edwin Adams is receiving a fair share of the public patronage at this theater, in his masterly ren dition of " Enoch Arden." He certainly is deserving of crowded houses, and we trust he may receive that attention to which his great ability entitles him. He is unquestionably one of the very best actors on the stage to-day, and has won lus lanrels after the severest test of critioism. The same bill is announced for this even ing, and on Friday evening a benefit will be tendered him. Academy of Mu-ic. — This pretty little thea ter was filled last night by the many friends of the Kelly & Leon tronpe. The change of programme brought out new and pleasing features, and evidenced tbe versatility of the company. The performance was marked throughout by an entire lack of rude jests and vulgar allusions. Chaste, humorous and laughable, the evening's entertainment was truly delightful. Globe Theater.— This favorite place of amusement is still drawing crowdeô houses. The following gentlemen constitnte the Reception Committee at the Opera House this evening: Philip Buchanap, Chairman.

The Opera House.— There was a perfect rush at the matinee yesterday at this theater, and the house was packed almost immedi ately after opening the doors with a very se lect and appreciative audience. Dr. Yon Bulow will perform daring the per formance to-morrow, making in addition to the efforts of the talented members of the company, a grand and altogether unusual en tertainment. On Saturday night Madame Thole; will re oeive a benefit, and on that occasion Dumas's admired play of " Le Dami-Monde" will be performed for the first time in New Orleans. The Seamen's Reunion. — The entertain ment given on Wednesday evening at the Second Mission Church, corner of Pleasant and Lanrel streets, was a very successful affair. Tbe ladies exerted themselves greatly to please their sailor guests, and succeeded in making them have a delightful time. Mr. W. F. Ogden delivered a handsome address to the sailors, to 'which Capt. Mellon, of the steamship Memphis, made an elegant re sponse. There were several songs and reci tations by the sailors, and the evening was altogether a delightful one. Despite-the in clemency of the weather, there was a very large attendance. There was an ample sup ply of refreshments on hand, and thanks are due to many kind donors, especially to that ever kind and generous lady, Margaret Haughery, of "Margaret's" bakery, who kindly presented all the bread needed. These reunions are very pleasant, and are produc tive of much good. We congratulate the ladies on the success of their efforts. Ho! For Red River.— To-day at 5 P.

"UP COTTONX" The Eîgee Case in the Cttwfbtew Hatters «ul Thing» About the federal Courts» The attendance Up«»' the -session mt fit« United States Circuit and District Courts Wednesday morning was unusually large, aud there was'considerable curiosity exhibited eft the part of the bystander^ as. ta the jpjobi* bility of new arraignments. After the 'opening of the Circuit Court 1>y Judge Woods, some ten of the sureties of W Dudeuhefer stepped forward thj«J qualifie!, after which that gentleman »a» discharged until the day ef trial, IV. R. Whitaker, E<q . «he attorney et S. S. Deuce, indicted fof conspiracy iu the cot* ton eases, presented a (notion again to feducs the boftd, arguing that'the sum of $5000 was more than Denee could give, District Attor ney Beckwith, in response, stated that, be sides tfie indictment already presented, there would be two others brought in sobn against the*prisoner—one fof subornation of perjury, the other for anothes conspiracy. Judge Woods thereupon refused the motion. The Grand Jury, with the Distriot Attor ney, then went to their chambers, and it is reported started in on a thorough investiga tion of the famous Elgee cotton claims, wherein $480,000 has been paid to the claim ants, or rather Withers, of New York, by the Treasury Department Witnesses from St Landry, Avoyelles and the Attakapos country were examined, and it is whispered about that when the indictment is brought in some of the most prominent individuals of our city will have their names npon it as defendants. The case has been one of much promi nence all over the United States, and some of the most influential men are connected with it. The government detectives claim that they have a " sure thing " in it, and that when the expose is made it will be shown that.the whole claim was a grand frand, and the resalt of a conspiracy to defrand the gov ernment Whisky was not touched by the Grand Jury, or rather the matter of crooked rye was not investigated at all Wednesday morning, the labors of the inquisitors being confined to cotton. in the district court. Judge Billings took the bench promptly at 11 o'clock, and the first business ot the day was he swearing in of the clerk, John Devon shire, and his deputies K. Loew and F. R. Charbonnet. After that a number of motion» were presented and a large amount of bust* ness transacted. Judge Billings seems determined to deaf off his docket the accnmnlation «f the past twenty-two months, and in order to facilitate this, sits in chambers early ef mornings so that attorneys having business in the State courts can submit their cases before the open* ing of court This will be of material bene fit to all parties concerned, and J udge Bit* lings deserves commendation for bia 1to advance the interest of litigants. AUXILIARY CtfJBc DEMOCRATIC CONSERVATIVE VOTERS OF BECOND WARD. THE Last night at Minerva Hall was held a Jafge and enthusiastic meeting of the voters of the Second Ward, for the purpose of forming an auxiliary Democratic and Conservative club. A large number of badness men were present at the. meeting, which numbered about 300 persons. . Addresses were delivered by tfessfs. W. F. Houston, F. McGloin and D. M.

A Comi littee on Resolntions reported the following, which were adopted unanimously: Wherea i, the political campaign which is about to < pen is a most important one, in volving a shangeof administration in .Federal, State and nnnicipal government, and . Wherea i, it is the duty of every citizen, of whatever rade, profession or occupation, and cf whatev er fortune in life—a duty which can be neithei evaded nor delegated—to take a part in tin «e preliminary political movements, which ha!e for their object the presentation of candidates for the suffrages of the people, Be if resolved, That this olnb invites to its ranks all citizens of the Second Ward who adhere to the.principles of the Democratic Coaservative party, who have tbe welfare of the State and city at heart, and who desire to put forward as our standard bearers in the ap proaching compaign the men of whatever class of fortune who wonld most worthily represent our party—a party comprising the bone and sinew, the wealth and intelligence of the State. Resolved, That the Parish Committee be and is hereby earnestly requested to fix a uniform day and hour in ordering a reorgan ization of the Central Clubs in the varions wards of the parish, in order to prevent any attempt on the part of any person to vote in any other ward than his own in such reorgan ization. Resolved, That any reorganization of the Central Clubs prior to the month of May next wonld be, in the opinion of this club, prematnre and to the prejudice of the busi ness portion of the community, whose en gagements at the present moment would not permit them that time to devote to ward poli tics which their importance demands. Resolved, That a copy of these resolntions be forwarded to the President of the Parish Committee, with the request that he present them to the committee. A Committee on Constitution and By-Laws was appointed, who are to recommend a ftame for this olnb. . # * The following Committee cn Resolutions was appointed: Major J. E.

At the appointed hoar Superintendent Loan and Capt Gray walked into court, accom panied by their counsel, Messrs. 4âlex. Dal sheimer, W. R. Whitaker and H. J. Campbell. The first ease called was that of Capt Gray. Mr. Whitaker asked the Oohrt what he was charged with, and Judge Adams answered, " Ha is charged, sir, with oontempt of this Court in releasing prisoners." Mr. Whitaker asked tbe court in what cose. Jadge Adams replied, "in the case of one Lyons, where he released the prisonef without authority, after this court refused to let him out The only question is, that he did release Mr. Lyons without authority, and I think that onoe a prisoner is arrested and brought to jail, the oourt only has a right to release. I have formed my opinion, and know what the law is cn the subject of releas ing prisoners. # It is useless to read it to me ; I know it by heart" Mr. Whitaker—The question is, bas your Honor any control over prisoners until they are turned over to the eourt ? Judge Adams—I know my position. When I gave orders tQ the precinct commanders not to release prisoners they should have obeyed my orders, whioh they refused to do when they released these prisoners. Mr. Whitaker stated that the Police Board wan the proper party to punish the Superin tendent or Captain if they acted unwisely or wrong, or in violation of the law. I contend that the Judge himself is not authorized by law to Release and the polioe ran the risk of losing their positions or being fined by ihe board if they act unwisely oi do anything «ut of the way; and, if they fail to produce the prisoner in court at the appointed hoar, when their «tames are «»lied, the polioe are bonnd to produce them. After the prisoner ia turned over the court has fall coptroL and before that time the police have the e»m» power; and, if the party ia released wfoftg* (ally, there is a place where tie o»q be pan* *she<f. Judge Adaftiâ— Yes; it is ftefofe «hi# court. If you can show tin# any law that authorises the Superintendent or Captain of folic» to release prisoners, ! will be satisfied hat ootf until then, i tnink that f am the only paf ty authorized Jo release a prisoner. X think a judge is a judge whereve) he is. Mr. Whitaker—The polioe take the respon sibility ef releasing parties in their custody, aud when they produce them in court when their names are k tiled, th»% is «U tha\ $he court wants. The -Judge—tT lieft fheÿ A» hol gifoAuce them ? Mr. WhitaleF— Theft Wotk hate Th» proper remedy. The law gives your Honor no con trol over the Superintendent or Captain. Messrs. Dalsheim« and Campbell argued that no contempt had been committed and that he had no right to send them down for < contempt in refusing t# cojnply with his order. The Grand Jary of a higher Court, was the plaoe that the matter must be brought before if ti» wrong ha<} been noms mit ted. The counsel then informed theCouft that it was useless to go over the same ground ja the matter against Col. }*oan—that jie was present. < Judge Adams—I don't oare if T sit as jndge of this court for twenty minutes, but while P am here I am determined that Xhe oonrt must be respected. Capt. Gray, I believe I told you betöre .when I was in the Fonrth District ihatif.yod released prisoners I would dfend you to jaiL I think you have disobeyed my orders, and committed a contempt of this oourt, therefore I sentence you to imprison ment in tbe Parish Prison ior twAty-four hoars. Mr. Superintendent yôa jeleased Mr. Gallagher and another party ? Col. Loan—Yes, sir. * Judge Adams—I will also sentence ÿo» fo the Parish Prison for the same period. I will take both of yonr words tbat yon will go to prison. I have no malice in the matter, and don't want to send you down with an officer. If I have no right to send joa £entlemen> down, I don't want it. Col. Loan and Capt. Gray jumped in aback and drove down to tbe Pariah Prison, where they were both confined for about half an hoar, when a writ of .habeas oofpu® was* served on Capt E. B. Pegram to produce 1 them before the Hon. E. North Cullom, Judge 1 of the Fifth District Court 1 Mr. Dalsheimer, immediately afteP Ju$ge 1 Adams hid sentenced them, appeared before the Fifth District Court and filed the follow ing petition for a writ of habeas corpus, whioh was served on the Sheriff by Mr, Dab sheimer: . To the Honofable, the Judge of the Fifit» dis trict Court of the P.risn of Orleans: The petition of W. F. Loan, of New Or leans, respectfully represents that he ift ille gally confined and deprived of his liberty by one E. £. Pegram, keeper pt tbft Parish Prison, who bolds petitioner in such confine ment.upon an ordij issued by the Hon. L. Adams, acting as Judge of tbe First Munici pal Police Court of this city ; and Jhafc peti© tioner has been so committed npoi» a charge of contempt to said Judge. Petitioner «vers that his said imprisonment is wrong aqd f»lse e npon the following grounds, to-wit ? 1. That the Judge, L. Adams, is bot bom* petent to sit as the Judge of tbe Ffrst Muni cipal Police Conrt, because he has pa resi dence in the district overwhiah Jbe prqpides. 2. That he is no party to any suit pending before the conrt ovea which he presides« 3. That the only conrt that jia»p<rwe^la commit for contempt, must bq ft «etlG o I record, which the said*court is not* 4. That tbe police have the sole tttstftjf 6f all.prisoners arrested, by the authority »l#eQ* tions 41 and 42, Act 92, Ï869. 5. That L.

It has now leaked ont that the Carnival Ball, on Mardi-Gras night, is to be the most magnificent revel of the century. A regi ment of Frecoh and Italian painters and Bel gian upholsterers have been at work for soma weeks past, decorating and draping tbe danoing and reoeption rooms, preparatory to the great event. JSo far, no one exoept the Lord High Cham berlain, the Grand Master of Ceremonies, and the Dukes of Variete and Fiddlestioks, are permitted to visit the apartments; but wo have good reason to believe and to assert, that the arrangements are on a grander and more artistic scale than has ever been adopted be fore. It is> well known that Rex, attended by his principal nobles and courriers, will re ceive the people in state, and it is generally believed that after the closing and sealing of the sreoeption chamber, it is his Gracious pur pose to> visit «ertaiu other festivities and revels, so that none may lose the privilege of beholding ihe in»jeetic presence. In consid eration of which, foots, «hd of the general spfendo) and elegance uf the loyal entertain-' ment, it has been decreed that the Tuff evening 'oostaiqe, di eUjueur shall indispensa ble * * Evidently »©.one tian Iritness %Jth proper appreciation orehara with becoming,feverence the brilliant ceremonies of that «evening, ex' <cept in a claw-hammef coat of «the most pre hounoei dffescriptietf. We do not know that any «diot has been issued 'requiring patent deatber pump# fend bcarleC silk hose, but wo don't mind suggesting that these will be pro per things to sport on the occasion. The faithful subjeots ofi Rex, however, may be assured that an affair of totally unprece dented splendor awaits them. The Carnival ball is to be a worthy olimax of tbe royal snd impressive pageants and ceremonies of tbe day. &EX CAKNIVALIS. ©refers from the King. tBy erder of the King of the Carnival ] Department Lord High Chamberlain, 1 New Orleans.
