AT THE STATE HOUSE everything was quiet on Monday morning. The Governor has not yet returned to the city, bat is expected to be on hand on Tues day morning. There are many complaints against the SENATE COMMITTEE ON ENBOLLMENT for their dilatoriness. Speaker E Stilette stated to a Bulletin re porter on Monday morning that he Bad not received one bill from the committee, and that by their negligenoe he had been pat* to great expense and inconvenience; being com pelled, from a sense of duty, to remain in the city. Complaint has been made to Attorney Gen eral Field that A PROMINENT JUDGE of one of car parish courts is not a citizen of the United Slates; that he was born in Canada, and has never been naturalized. The Attorney General states that he is awaiting farther information from the Com plainant before taking the necessary proceed ings to unseat the judge complained of. " Mrs. Belknap said a day or taro ago to a friend, who relates her conversation, that she did not consider herself a criminal, or that she had done anything particularly'wrong; at least, she did not feel that #he was commit ting a great sin when she used her influence to get friends positions. " * But,' said she, ' if I have sinned, others have doubly sinned : if I am guilty of crimes, others are guilty of doable crimes.' "She went on to say that she had done only what others had been doiDg for years. She was sore that many people in her place would have done far worse than she, and used their influence to the fullest extent. This confidante of Mrs. Belknap says that Mrs. Belknap and her friends make no secret in their private conversations of these things. According to their admission the practice is one of long standing. " Mrs. Belknap says that her case is of little importance compared with the situation of the others. The names of prominent men are threatened as having secured offices for their friends through the influence of tneir presents and their money. Mrs. Belknap says that astonishing facts will be brought to light if the committee are anxions far them, and that she is far from deserving the deep condemnation that has been heaped upon her by the public.''— Washington Correspondence N. Y. Herald The essential essence of Grantism is ex pressed by Mrs. Belknap. She nsed her in fluence to get positions for her friends, pre cisely as others did—as Grant did—and 6he tbonght she might share in their prosperity. If Grant was right in making the government a oow for his folks, Mrs. Belknap was not far in the wrong. If the President had a right to pension worthless and disreputable persons upon the pnblic servioe- by way of pleasing himself and discharging his personal obliga tions, Mrs. Belknap's sin was of the very smallest proportions. Then we think it true, as she says, that her case is of little impor tance as compared with others.

Coilperic has a famous pedigree, is a splendid ohestnut sorrel, sixteen hands high, and is reputed to be the fastest stallion in Louisiana. The Philadelphia Herald says to the impas sioned writers who have of late been citing the offenses of past generations: "There is, unfortunately, no lack of precedents for Bel knap; but we can not imagine why that fact should be paraded before the country just now. So far'as Belknap and the rest are con cerned, the whole thing lies here: The people want lor Cabinet Ministers men who will fol low honest, not villainous, precedents." The Philadelphia Inquirer thus comments on the Senate's recent elephant from Louisi ana: "The Pinchback agony is over. For this let ns be truly thankful. The Senate cf the United States refuses, by a close vote, to become a party to an outrage as bold as shameless villainy coaid conceive. It is a pity that it took a body of learned men so long to discover what everybody else knew— that Pinchback was never elected, and that if he had been his place was in prison and not in the Senate of the United States. Mr. Mor ton wiU now have time to get together his odds and ends of half-deUvered speeches, and put them in shape for another occasion." . THE ATTORNEY GENERALS' WAR. The Inj auction Yesterday. The Superior Distriot Court on Monday morning was fiUed with a orowd of spectators, bronght together by the Dibble and Field case. Judge Lynch occnpied the bench. The injonction to restrain Henry C. Dibble from acting in the capacity of Attorney Gen eral was called. John Bay appeared for Mr. D.bble, and Judge Cotton for CoL Field. After the opening preliminaries of the case, Judge Lynch suggested that he had signed the injnnction to restrain the Assistant Attor ney General from interfering with the duties of CoL Field. He also suggested that the portion of the order whioh asserts that Judge Dibble is in terfering with the duties of CoL Field be canceled. Judge Dibble then arose and said that he could not see. how the Attorney General conld pnt a person ont of office, the person having been appointed by the Governor who had signed and promulgated the act creating the said office, after it had been duly passed by the Legislature. In response to the above, CoL Field said: "I desire to go out of the government quietly if I can. I desire, as long as I re main here, to be a representative of the peo ple, and do them all the service I can, but if 1 had consulted my own wishes, I should have retired from an office where I was sur rounded by thieves, who were endeavoring to destroy and make me a criminal by protect ing aud sheltering their own thieves from punishment." He also said he " thought that his worthy successor bad taken a frolic with his Excel lency, the Governor; bat in the meantime he had been telegraphed for by his attorney to be h6re on this most sacred occasion, and that there is no use in disguising the fact, that the Governor is in council with the As sistant Attorney General every day, and what else conld I have thought of than to resort to the use of this oonrt on this subjeot." Mr. Bay said: " All we ask is that the in junction be modified so as to let Mr. Dibble continue bis duties as he has been doing for the last two years." The Court said : " I think the portion of the order restraining .the Assistant Attorney General from exercising the powers which he has been carrying on for the last two years ought to be stricken ont. I will set aside the portion of the rule preventing the Assistant Attorney General from acting; and 1 will also dissolve that part of the injunction whioh re strains him from acting in the capacity of As sistant Attorney General." Judge Cotton said : " We do not ask that the injunction be dissolved." The Coart.—"CoL Field, yon will have to furnish a bond of $2000, and let the order re main until to-morrow." Judge Dibble then mid: "If yonr Honor pleases, I most not discharge my duties ?" The Court—" No, sir; not until to-morrow, when the case will be tried." Judge Dibble—"If I have to cease in my duties Ï will take the case to the Supreme Court." CoL Field said: "I do not want to stop the gentleman from carrying out his duties; I will discharge the injunction in this case in toto." Judge Lynch then instructed the clerk to issue the following order: "On motion of A. P. Field, E(q., Attorney General, it is ordered that the injunction in this case be set aside and fixed tor trial on Wednesday, March 15, 1876, at 11 o'clock A. M." FIRE ON SHIPBOARD. The British Ship Majestic Struck by Lightning. About 3 o'clock Sunday morning, during the Btorm, the lightning strnok the skysail mast of the British ship Majestic, lying at the head of Felicity street, and passed down the mast to the hold of the vessel, coming out on the port side, abont a foot above the copper ing, making an opening large enough for a man to pass through. The officers and sailors on board the vessel felt the shock, bat did not know that the lightning had struck the ship until 5 o'clock Sunday morning, when they discovered volnmes of smoke com ing from the aft hatchway. An alarm was sonnded from bpx No. 29, Which was promptly xesponded to by the har bor fire boats Tyler and Proteotor and the Fire Department, who went to work and pnmped the vessel full of water. The Majestic was loading for Liverpool, and had on board at the time of the fire abont 3500 bales of cotton, the greater portion of which is badly damaged by fire and water. The ship and cargo was fnlly covered by in surance. The damage to the ship , is very slight The cotton is being removed to the Beading Cotton Press. Tooker, of Booth's Theater, who has led so manv big wigs by their ears as advertisements of "Julius Cesar," got Grant and bis Cabinet to promise to pat iu their appearance at the play ; but the very day after he won this suc cess, the Belknap explosion took place, and* nothing has been heard of it since. As Gtgnt' and Belknap have thus been prevented from seeing the play together, they might take a few spare moments to study that part of it in which the following condensed dialogue occurs: Brutus —Let me tell you, Cassius, you yourself Are much condemned to have an itching palm ; To sell and mart your offices for gold To uudeaervers. Cassius —I an itchiog palm ! • Brutus— The name of Cassius honors this cor ruption, And chastisement doth therefore hide his head. Cassius —Chastisement ! Brutus —Remember March ! The ides of March remember ! Did not great Lincoln bleed for just'eo sake, And not 'or plunder? What, shall one of us Act in supporting robbers ; shall we now Contaminate our fingers with base bribes ? And sell the mighty space of our large honors For so much trash as may be grasped thus ? I had rather be a dog, and bay the moon, Than such a Roman. — New York Sun. A sonnet by Shelley, "To the Nile," is printed for the first time in the St. James Magazine for March. This sonnet is one of a number of original manuscripts by Shelley in the possession of Mr. Townsend Mayer, who has placed many of them at the service of Mr. Bnxton Forman in his preparation of a new edition of Shelley's works, which is soon to be published in London. I HE BOURBON DYNASTY. An Ex-Gauger Is Said To Have Squealed. A Movement in the Crooked. Monday morning opened at the Custom House rather promising to the reporters, and they were, accordingly, in high glee, antici pating a full hand of news, bat it tamed oat there was- nothing but promise in it. The Grand Jury were called by Judge Woods and discharged until 1 o'clock, after which the Judge signed an order npon the telegraph companies, requiring them to deliver into oonrt certain telegrams found, which, it is said, bears heavily upon the crooked cases. What they are no one seems to know, and as Major New says, those in the District Attor ney's office drink only Mumm Champagne, mum was the word there. C jL Brooks, who is in charge of the revenue forces here seemed highly elated at something, and was very anxions that Gen. Tntton should arrive. It was hinted abont that a certain ex ganger has tamed States evidence and hai made a fall and explicit confession of all the business here, and that the government is now in possession of all the facts they desire. Nothing of the truth of this could be gleaned from the revenue officials themselves, for they refused to talk abont it. They say, however, that the ernsade is not at an end, and that they will develope the faot that their position so far has been correct. When the Grand Jury reassembled in the afternoon they went to work on tue cotton cases, to whioh labor they devoted the re maining hours of the session. Alex McKee, of O'Brien's distillery, who was indicted a few days ago for conspiracy in the whisky busi ness, was on hand to be arraigned aud give bond, bat he was not called up by the Dis trict Attorney. It looks just now as if Julge Woods was preparing for heavy business, for yesterday he ordered the jury commissioners to draw a panel of four hundred good and competent j nrors to serve in the Cironit Conrt. This will doabtless crowd the hallways of the Cus tom-House-to-day, for there are many idle who are anxions to get on the jury, as it pays three dollars a day. Special Internal Devenue Agent Wheeler was generally considered to have wandered off with Gen. Brady into space, but it tarns oat he has been here all the time, keeping quiei, and evidently steering ont of the way of reporters. It now transpires that he is in the city, and has beep, without intermission at work npon the telegrams at the several offices, seeking to get at something implicating parties here. The order issued by the Court calling for the production of certain named dispatches, came at his request aud covers some he has dis- covered already. - Con Alienee-with Wives. In connection with the reported remark of a gentleman, who said that he didn't believe the ladies he met in Washington street knew that the times are dull, and that their hus bands are having a hard time to keep their heads above water, the Boston Journal relates the following: ."All hu(bands do not make tbeir financial affairs a topio of conversation at home, and some better halves know less of tbeir own husbands' affairs than they do of their neighbors'. Some weeks since a lady was first informed of her hnsband's suspen sion by reading an announcement in a paper* which she aoeidently took up iu a'store while waiting to have an order filled. "Whether it was pride or fear that prompted the secresy can not be stated, bat what can be expected from wives in the way of true economy if they are only silent partners in the matrimonial copartnership? In 1857 a large jewelry firm sold a costly set of jewels to a lady. The Arm knew that her husband was in a failing condition, bnt the lady had been a long and >piofitable customer. When the partner ordered his clerk not to charge the set, whioh had been delivered, but to make a memorandum on the blotter, he paid the lady's integrity a high compliment. When her husband failed the jewelry came back with a note couched in such terms that the dealer only regretted that the gift of the set would be oonstrued as an insult."

Gen. Grant ia a kindly brother. When he knew there waa any luscions plum abont to drop from any>fruit tree, he, as appears from his brother Orville's testimony, advised him to be present, open his mouth and catch the plum as it descended.

It is a fact not generally known, that Stone wall Jackson tendered his resignation in Jan uary, 1862, just after the affair at Bomney, assigning as a reason, the intermeddling of the Confederate authorities with his plans, and th^ir lack of confidence in him. Bnt for the influence of Gov. Letcher, he would have been lost to the Southern cause. His le. ter, curt, precise and soldierly, has recently been placed in the State Library at Bichmond, of which the scholarly and gently humorous I Bagby is the presiding genius.— Raleigh Sen■ Und. Pinchback Las been kicked ont' of the United Sates Senate. That's a very gratify ing event; but is Pinchback "squelched?" We fear not. He belongs to the small bnt formidable body of "Unsquelcbables."" He's a high private in the urmy of National Nuisances. The first resolution he formed, after picking himself np at the foot of the Capitol terrace, was to go back to Louisiana and breed a new political pestilence in that doomed and rogne-ridden State. If Nature were in any sort of intelligent sympathy with a suffering people, it wonld move toe month of the 'Mississippi to gobble Pinchback np. The river might be able to digest him, but nothing else can.— Brooklyn Argus. A SAD ACCIDENT. Burned to Death. Some two weeks ego a most deplorable accident occurred on the "Nina " Plantation, about two handled miles above this city, on the Coast, (on the Mississippi side), by which a well known and estimable lady lost her life. In the performance of her daily Tontine of domestic duties she had ocoasion to fill a glass lamp in whioh coal oil was used. In placing it on a mantel-piooe the lamp was broken, the oil spirted out upon her clothing, and the fire whioh was horning in the grate ignited the gas evolved from the volatile flnid, and instantaneously the flames enveloped the unfortunate lady. Instinctively she rushed to her husband, who was lying on a cot in the same room, helpless and prostrated by a disease of the heart, and begged him, in most piteons terms, to save her. The poor fellow threw np his arms and tried with all the strength he possessed to tear toe homing clothing from h6r body, bnt his efforts were vain and his beloved wife was almost literally burned to death before his eyes. He waa also terribly injured and has since died. The viotims of this most afflictive dispensa tion were Mrs. and Mr. Wm. Adams. The lady was a daughter of Mr. W. H. Dunbar, a well known planter and prominent oitizen of Natchez, and her husband was a son of the late Com. Adams, of the United States navy, and a nephew of Mr. Charles A. Allen, of New Orleans. Both lived in this oity for several years, and had a wide circle of sincerely attached friends, who will shed bitter tears ovor the distressful account of the sad calamity by whioh they lost their lives. They left three little children, who will feel the want of a mother's oare and a father's protection. STRUCK ON THE HEAD. A Man Dies in the Charity Hospital from a Fracture of the Skull. A white man named John Lynch, a laborer, died Sunday night in the Charity II ispital from the effects of a blow on the head, in flicted with some blnnt instrument, on the 22d 'of February, 1876, in a sailors' boarding house, No. 25 Tonlonse street, between Chartres -and Lsvee. The nnfortnnate man, after baing struck on the head and felled to the gronnd by one of his companions named Kelly, who was under the influence of liquor, was picked np by hiB friends and taken up stairs to his room. The witnesses to the affair did not think that Lynch was serionsly in jured, and allowed Kelly to walk out of toe saloon and make good his escape. The man grew worse and he remained in his room until last Thursday, when the pro prietor of the saloon sent for the Charity wagon and had him removed to the Hospital, where he died Sunday evening. Coroner Chastant empaneled a jury and continued his investigation until Thursday, in order to give the police time to produce the witnesses who were present when the diffi culty took place. Dr. Cooper, City Physician, held a post mortem examination, when it was discovered that Lynch came to his death from a fracture of the sknlL The proprietor of the saloon states that Lynch, Kelly and two or three other parties commenced to quarrel in the rear portion of the building, and walked out to the street through the coffee-house, while he was stand ing behind the oonnter, to fight it oat A difficulty took place.in Iront of the door, and when L>noh was brought in, he stated that Kelly had struck him on the head.

Grant, before he left for the Blaok Hills, was : " Father hoped they wonld sift and sift every body abont bim, and then they would find ont just how things stood." CoL Fred, nttered a positive trntb, for it is very evident that the investigating committees are "finding ont how things stood." It will be observed, how ever, that the President is not reported as saying that he wished himself to be sifted. He wants everybody about bim shaken np, bnt be does not wish any of that himself. It may happen, however, in the natural coarse of events, that it may become positively necessary to sift "father" in order to "find out how things stand."— Courier-Journal The thrill ot horror and dismay which ran through the country at the news of Secretary Belknap's disgrace will lose its compensating effect it the event iB regarded merely as a case of individual depravity. It differs in degree, but not in kind, from hundred's of instances Of official misconduct, all of which, it may be added, follow as directly as eff;ot can follow can36 from the total absence in Washington of aU personal responsibility of anybody for anything. Secretary Belknap has been for six or seven years, as far as the publie was concerned, the shadow of a name. If he wanted anything in his department, instead of stating and defending it frankly in debate before the - country, he was obliged to lobby in private with committees of Congress. On the other hand, not so much as a question conld be publicly asked with relation to the workings ef tliat department without the con sent of the majority of Congress.

Genins needs no trompeter —like the sun it proclama itself; it will not be obscured, and hence, we take it, the career of this new and beautiful aspirant for histrionic fame is well nigh assured. She has every requisite- tag success—remarkable personal beauty of faon and form, features capable of expressing aU the varied emotions of the sonl, and a voie» of singular power and flexibility. Her ex treme youth, (she is only sixteen), and th* lack of stage experience, of coarse, militate greatly against her. She is at times not an graceful or effective as she might be—tbera are often moments when her laok of training is very notioeable, bat allowing for all that, there is a freshness and power and beauty ia her aoting, whioh is positively invigorating. It is like a breeze from the ocean, which, comes laden with balm for those who toil and faint in the hum-drum heated life of toe city. We do not mean to assert that Miss Anderson has attained the top of the Ittfider in her pro fession. She is only a beginner. She has just flashed npon the stage, a mere child in j ears and in experience, but she has oertainly achieved wonders already, and her future—u she be not spoiled by adnlation, if she do not mistake the roses now thrown her for the un fading laurels which are won only after great and unremitting labor and study—is assured. We confess to have felt a great cariosity to witness the aoting of Miss Mary Anderson; reports had reaohed ns respecting her ability, bat apparently so flattering in their oharaoter that we were bat little prepared to aeoept them as faithfully indicative of toe real mérite of the young actress. We went to the St. -Charles Taeater last evening prepared to see a young lady enact the role of Evadne in » splendid manner tor an amatenr—we saw • mere girl perform the part in a style whioh, in an actress of years' study and stage experi enee, would have been pronounced remark able. The character is one réquiring an unusual display of dramatio strength ; it is fall of pen sion and plot, and so evenly balanoed are the characters that the snocesslnl rendition of Evadne demands great power, tempered by reason and delicaoy of interpretation. Love, pure and devoted, confident in the power of the sincerity and truth of its teachings ; and yet all unselfish is the fount from which flows the strength and beanty ot Evadne's charao Ur. Brotbei ly affection and honest maidenly love ere made each to straggle with the other, when the maiden's heart would speak to bote brother and lover end win over both to their allegiance to truth and honor. The pioturing of the straggle requires an ability born of genius, and Miss Anderson proved herself last night to possess that ability in a degree whioh made veteran theater goers start and gaze in wonder npon the flash of the eleotria spark of histrionic greatness whioh shone upon the stage like a gem when the artiste's work was done. Miss Anderson's aoting is not similar to that whioh results from years of hard and methodical study, bat bears the imprint of native freshness and nntntored beanty; it in not the oonsequenoe of successful imitation, but the ontbnrst of a power whioh craves scope for exercise and longs for snbjeots upon which to try its foroe. Such a power must at first, all unconflned and restless as it is, fall into oooasional error and stnmble upon frequent mishap. There were scattered about in Miss Anderson's interpretation errors of intonation and posture, and slight mishaps in gesticulation and reading, bu< the whols was brilliant, powerful and wonderfuL Young and inexperienced as she is, she rose to a ma jestic height and evidenced her ability to bear alone the burden of the part and carry it through to a glorious termination. For this evening Shakespeare's beantifol play of " Borneo and Juliet " will be present ed with Mias Andersou as Juliet. The Varieties Theater.— Miss May How ard made her first appearance in our city last evening at this theater as Meroy Merrick in "The New Magdalen." Miss Howard is • remarkaflly handsome lady and dresses beautifully. Her acting is very good; indeed, some scenes bsing especially noticeable for the display of quiet and emotional aoting. Her declama tory passages were also well rendered, and the meeting between Meroy Merriok, the impostor, and Grace Biseberry, the wronged, whets Meroy so denounces and defies her rival, was exceedingly well done. Although we do not greatly admire Miss Howard's oonoeption of the part, still we mast give her credit for con sistency of interpretation and a display of mnoh tact and judgment The character is at best s thankless and ill favored one, and though in some instances it enlists the sympathies, yet in others it gives rise to displeasure, and the actress must bring much artistic skill to bear, if she would suooeed in winning continuous îavor from her auditors. Now strong, now weak, ons moment ooefident, the next trembling with, fear, Meroy Merrick makes the most exacting calls npon the talente of an aotress who Alla the part. Miss Howard was sneoessfal in its interpretation, and reoeived many hearty rounds of applause from her audience. This evening she will repeat the characterization, and we trust may be greeted by an equally large and appreciative audience. Academy of Music. - It was pleasant once more to sit before the foot-lights and enjoy again the amasement afforded by onr friends of the regnlar dramatio oompany at ihs Academy. One becomes attached to the vete rans and doesn't lose his allegiance when every new regiment pnts in an appearance. The " Lottery of Life" w*sgiven last night to a good honse, and John Brongbam's fertil ity of invention and wealth of dramatio re source was fully evidenced. In the oast Misses Emma Palmer, Jennie Clifford and Ada Bo8hell, with Messrs. Huntley, Pike and Ketchnm sncceeded in carrying away their hearers and adding not a little to their repara tion as artists. The specialties were all good, the Garcias, d nino Eddy, and Madison be ing frequently applauded. At the matinee to-morrow we learn there will be given to the lucky ticket holder a ladies' beautiful gold watch. Odd Fellows' Hall. —This evening Gen. Tom Thumb aud wife, Miss Minnie Warren and Major Newell will appear at this place in a series of songs, duetts, dances and amusing sketohes, which will prove very pleasant and attractive. These little people are just return ing from a trip around the world, and during their absence have played before most of the crowned heads of Europe. They will giva only a few of their seleot parlor entainmente here, add we imagine a pleasant visit may bn had at the Hall during their stay. ^ W ants and To Bent inserted in the Bullet» fog
