The signal triumph recently achieved at the Varieties Theater by Mary Anderson, in the character of Meg Merrilies, sets all the ac oep ed theories of modern criticism entirely at sea. A chit of a girl, in all the callowness of her teens, unaccustomed to society, unfamiliar with the pettiest details of the profession, almost entirely unacquainted with the drama outside the anthor's pages, suddenly comes ont npon ns from the mountains of Eentncky, and before she has oompleted a score of repre sentations, crowns herself the living Queen of Tragedy, apparently without an iffjr', raisirg the mantle of dead Cushman to her shoulders, and at a single essay conquering a past which made the name and tame of the latter ring trumpet-toned throughout the world. How is this marvel to be explained ? What is dumb-founded criticism to say when it finds that rare power heretofore accepted as unattainable otherwise than through the culmination of refined, expensive and artistic culture, a paltry toy in the hands of a school girl ? The conclusion appears inevitable that heretofore we have all been at fanlt, and that either the English stage of our day is barren of true genius, or else that the difficulties of the actor's art have been vastly and absurdly overrated. Surely it can not be that the drama has fallen the prey of imbecility; that its profes sionals have generally mistaken their voca tion ; that the long years spent in laborious study and preparation have been in most instances wasted npon incompetency instead of a desperate contest with legitimate labor. Yet upon what other reasonable hypothesis are we to account for the high artistic finish and dramatic power bursting npon ns from this untutored novice, who, outside of a con sciencions love for her art and unflagging industry seems to have brought no extraor dinary aids to bear npon her undertaking ? This wonderfnl girl, who possesses natu rally such complete mastery over the passions, did not succeed in entirely pleasing her audiences in the role of characters she at first The voluminous skirts of Jalia, Juliet and Bianca hampered and sat upon her as awkwardly as harness on a blooded racer. It was only in the more intense passages that sparks flashed forth of that dramatic fire which warmed into a blsze in " Meg Merri lies." Until then, it was genins in fetters; bat when, with the drawing-room atmosphere she cast them eff, and stood for the first time npon the legitimate boards of tragedy, her awkwardness and natural defects vanished like morning mists. She had found for the first time her real field, and both her conception and enactment of the character proved to be as grandly rounded and as free from fault or blemish as possible of attainment by the oldest veteran. Bat Mary Anderson's success has tanght the critic more than this. It has demonstrated the insignificance of the barrier which separates the sexes in dramatic interpreta tion. She has given satisf c ory evidence of ability to essay the most difficult of Shake speare's heroes, and in Romeo, Hunlet, etc., to find her congenial arid legitimate line of character. Certainly only iil-advised pre judice would restrict her to a feebler one. The stage is so wedded to tradition that in its atmosphere originality is as rare as it is highly estimated, and this country girl's con ception of either Hamlet or Romeo would possess all its elements in the highest degree. Her interpretation of these characters, free as they would and must necessarily be from the mold of the flies and echoes of the green room, would prove a treat indeed. After th3 power she has already displayed, both ander adverse and favorable circumstances, there is no loDger a question of her snccess in them— that is assured. , The critic's jud^men^ will be alone em ployed in regard to her comparative excel lence, and in this, if' the writer does not greatly err, she will be fonnd threatening the laurels of even Booth, Barrett, et sis. This, is no idle speculation of his, as hundreds who have witnessed Mary Anderson's success can testify ; and he is satisfied that none will prove to be more astounded than these great actors themselves when they realize their danger from a school girl who trips up the ragged path it has oost them so much time, toil and anxiety to mount, with the airy tread of a Diana. * * * Don't miss it.

Want« aud To Bent inserted in the Bulleto for fifty eenta. a t is of It as of POLITICAL TALK. There is trouble in the ranks of the faithful in Iberville parish, and two of the prominent colored men of the party—Allain and Des londe—are WAGING WAB against each other. The trouble grows ont of tbe faot that Allain wants to go to Congress at the next election and so does Deslonde. Iberville is Deslonde's own parish, bat Al lain has come forward and rallied ander bis standard a large and formidable number of the rank and file. There was a battle on Monday at the meeting of the Parish Commit tee. Allain won, carrying with him fourteen oat of the twenty-foar members present. Deslonde is mad bat not disheartened, and will continue the campaign. There is carrent AT THE STATE HOUSE a rumor to the effect that there is to be a change in the office of State Supervisor of Registration; that Capt. Wnght retires and B. Bloomfield comes in. The report is credited, and the baokers of Tom Anderson are very happy over it, as they regard it as an appoint ment in favor of their man. The friends of the other candidates do not like it, as they look npon it in the same light, and talk considerably about the fact that one of the sons of Tom Anderson is a partner of Bloomfield. The Urban matter has been postponed until April 1. The Governor has received A PETITION from the citizens of Shreveport, signed by the Mayor, the President of the Cotton Ex change and about one hnndred merchants, requesting him to sign the North Louisiana R ulroad bilL The Governor still his the bill before him, but bas expressed no intention in regard to it except the one stated several days ago, that he would investigate the manner of its passage. There was no business of importance trans acted at THE EXECUTIVE OFFICE yesterday, and the only thing of an official character which was done, was the appoint ment of Thomas Lee, under act 55 of 1876, as road master for the parishes of Orleans and Plaquemines. The rain kept the nsnal crowd of ward bum mers from the State-Honse and the Governor had a comparatively easy time. a The Good Work of the American District Telegraph Company. What Electricity Did for Those Employ ing it. The introduction even in onr private residences of the telegraph system has already proved of great benefit to onr public, and the satisfaction of knowing that the household have at their beckon, at a moment's notice, the police of onr city, has done mneh to re lieve onr citizens from uneasiness when away from home. The two incidents published below show this fully : Sunday evening, between 8 and 9 o'clock, while the family living at 223 Magazine street were engaged in pleasant conversation, they were disturbed by the children up stairs giv ing an alarm and averring that they had espied a strange looking man in the halL He essayed to enter one of the bed chambers, but noting the presence of the children made a hasty exit. The alarm was telegraphed to the central station of the American District Telegraph Company, and was immediately responded to by tbe company's officer, who, after a strict search found no trace of the burglar. Again, daring Monday afternoon the car riage and horse of John Henderson, Esq., was standing in front of Mme. Loquet's Insti tute, on Prytania street, when the horse became frightened and rushed off. After an nnsnccessfal search Mr. Henderson turned in a os 11 from his business office, which was promptly answered by the messenger, who retnrned in fifteen minutes with an answer that the horse and harness had been fonnd at the Sixth Preoinot Station and turned over to the driver; the buggy smashed up, how ever. These little facts go far to evidence the many benefits to accrne from the use c>f tbe new District Telegraph and add to the already long list of good deeds it has already wrought. We commend it to our citizens, especially those residing in the Garden» District, for the females left at home alone. The Philadelphia carpet manufacturing business amounts to $20,000,000 annually, or nearly as much as the whole United States manufactured in 1870, and as much as all England did last year. If Gen. Rnfns Ingalls, a bachelor, who has a salary of $4500, and who, in addition, en joys free quarters, free fnel, and the privilege of purchasing his groceries and provisions at cost price from the Subsistence Depart ment, can not pay his nebts out of his income, there is evidence that he is a man of extrava gant habits, rather than of that " honesty and purity" to which he lays claim. The army is not kept up as a refuge for spend thrifts. It is discreditable to an officer to ran in debt, and especially to be always so deeply in debt that for thlrty-S6ven years he has been unable to get oat of it Such an officer should be assisted ont of the army. He is in danger of temptation when placed at the head of the Quartermaster's Department, and when, instead of prying off his debts, he places costlv gifts where they will do the most good. N T . Y. Sun. _ Mr Hurlbut, of Illinois, in th9 debate in the House yesterday, was gracions enough to allude to the Southern members as prodigal sons who had come back to their father's house, differing, however, from the ott-quoted original in not bavi ig asked their father's pardon. The father, in the distempered vi sion of such demagogues as Hurlbut, is the Radical party, and the members of that de lectable conglomeration of thieves, whisky conspirators, corrupt cabinet ministers and adventurers will never forgive them for dar ing to enter Congress as the champions of a pare and constimtional government. Had they come as Radicals, even though they were covered all over with tbe siime which obscures Hays of Alabama and such re creant sons of the South as he, they would have been received with open arms by that party. That the Democrats from the South have not prostrated themselves at the feet of the Republican party and begged forgiveness for past political differences is something which very small people, snch as Mr. Hari but, can not overlook. They persist, how ever, in being considered in the Union, the attacks of the R tdicals to the contrary not withstanding.— SL Louis limes.

The Grand Jury of Um United States Cir cuit; Coart having fonnd indictments against Messrs. E. W. Willis, W. G. Randolph, Wm. Gàx'ig, John A. Dougherty, C. K. David, Dr. J. W. Dupre, Andrew Jackson, John McYea, John Fisher. A. H. Lamon, of Baton Ronge, a Deputy Marshal, was dispatohed Saturday with the capiases for the parties, and Sunday returned with the above prisoners. The indiotment grew ont of the late meet ing held in the city of Baton Ronge, ai which the resignation of Jndga George P. Davis was demanded by the people. Davis, it seems, has been aeting as clerk for the Deputy Col lée lor of Internal Revenue there, and as he concluded to leave the parish after refusing to comply with the request of the people, he appeared before the Grand Jnry and invoked the fallowing statute section 5518 of the United States Revised Statutes : "If two or more persons in any State or Territory conspire to prevent by force, in timidation or threat any person from accept ing or holding any office, trust or place of confidence under the United States, or from dis charging any duties thereof, or to induce by like means any officer of the United States to leave any State, district or place where his duties as an officer are required to be per formed, or to injnre him in his person or property on account of his lawtnl discharge of the duties of his office * * * stiall be punished by a fine of not less than $590 nor more than $5000, or by imprisonment, with or withonthard labor, not less than six months nor more than six years, or by both fine and imprisonment" Davis claims that the action of the citizens drove him from Baton Range, notwithstand ing tbe faot that he was guaranteed freedom from molestation. On Monday morciug the gentlemen indicted appeared in court with their counsel, Messrs. Marr and New, and entered a plea of not guilty. The following then gave bond in the sum of $5090 each: John H. Lamon, surely Chas. A. Conrad. John Dougherty, surety Jos. W. Dougherty. Wm. Garig, surety Jos. W. Dougherty. Andrew Jackson, surety Ferd. Marks. C. K. David, surety Capt. John B. Brown. James McVea, surety Isaac H. Stauffer. By agreement with the District Attorney, the others were given time until Tuesday merning to furnish sureties. C. E. David, surety Jos. J. Brown. Wm. G. Randolph, surety John I. Adams. Dr. John W. Dupre, surety Abraham Levy. John D. Fisher, surety Barris D. Wood. Edward Willis, surety Sami. -H. Kennedy. The parties will leave for Baton Ronge this evening on the steamer Robt. E. Lee. to CROOKED NOTES. Capiases Asked For. The Grand Jury of the United Slates Cir cnit Court presented a roll of twenty present when their names were called and retired to their rooms. There was a large number of witnesses present, several from New York, and it is reported the jnry are inquiring into the bankrupt proceedings of I. C. Levy, the Canal street jeweller, who, they say, will be presented for fraud. Several merchants and attorneys of onr city were in attendance as witnesses. Daring tbe day only a few witnesses were ex «mined, when, it is said, the Grand Jnry were satisfied, and discharged the rest after an indictment had been drawn up. In Court, District Attorney Beckwith had the names of E. Ferenbaoh, W. M. Todd, Jno. R. Beals, Ö. Karstendick and Paul Brace, all indicted in the whisky cases, called by the Marshal, and none of them answering, the District Attorney asked that capiases be issued for them. He said they had been placed under bonds to appear when called, and that none of them had entered any plea, and that the govern ment wanted to prooeed with the cases at once, bat these parties were not represented by attorney. . The capiases were issued at once. The attendance in the coart-room was un usually large, and great interest was mani fested in the movement in whisky. There is a feeling of uneasiness prevalent about the Custom-House just now over the coming aoticn of tho Grand Jnry in crooked cotton cases. The report has leaked ont that the indictments are to include a number of weli-known names, and that a strong breeze will be raised when they are made public. Careful inquiry failed to develop who these parties are, as the government officials keep up only a nodding and winking when the sub ject is referred to.„ In the internal revenue license ca ses some one hundred capiases were ordered for delin quents.

Four Men .Drowned. On the morning of the 18th inst, the ship Magdala, of 797 tons borden, commanded by Capt. William Wiles, bonnd from Liverpool, for Ship Island, went ashore on one of the Chandeleur Islands. The wind was blowing hard, the sea running very high, and the ship was soon thrown on her broadside and rapidly filled with water. Capt. Wiles and the crew, numbering sev enteen men, were foroed to take to the rig ging, in whioh perilona position they remained for twelve hours, the great waves rolling ip npon them and threatening every moment to dislodge them. The gallant fellows clang manfully to the ropes and spars until 12 o'clock Saturday night, when the Captain per ceiving that the ship was rapidly breaking up, resolved to take to the boats, two of which had escaped the fury of the storm. It was a most hazardous undertaking to get tbe men into the boats, for the gale was at its height and the darkness was intense, only relieved now and then by vivid flashes of lightning. After much trouble this was ac complished and they started for the land, one boat with the captain and ten men, and the other with the mate and six men. The distance to be accomplished was only three-quarters of a mile, bat the surf was so heavy that it seemed almost impossible for a small boat to live in it, and it was only be cause it was a dernier resort that the trip was undertaken. Tbe Captain's boat passed through safely, bnt the other one was swamped, drowning the mate and three men. The remainder. of the boat's crew—three men—were fortunate enough to reach the shore. The name of the mate was James Morrison. Capt Wiles, with men, remained on the island until last Saturday, and reports that he was hospitably treated by the fi-hermen of those, parts, and by the people of the light house, nine miles distant from his plaoe of refnge. The Magdala, whioh was a fine ship, is a total wreck. The captain reaohed the city this morning by the Mobile train. ATTEMPTED SUICIDE. - An Old Man Shoots Himself in the Mouth at the-City Park. Patrolman Rvan, of the mounted police, while patroling his beat Snnday afternoon about 1 o'clock, and when opposite the City Park, heard the report of a pistol and tnrniDg around in the direction from whence the sound seemed to come, saw a man fall. He immediately ran to the spot and on arriving there found that the man had attempted to take his own life by shooting himself in the month. A small sized Lefancheux pistol was found lying near him. The unfortunate man was sent to the Charity Hospital where his wound was examined by Dr. Lewis, who discovered that the ballet had entered the head through the palate, inflicting a wound of snch nature that he was unable to give an opinion as to its probable result The wounded man is abont sixty-five years old and a native of France. Qe was unable at the time to give his name, but was identi fied at the hospital as Mr. Gilbert George, a grocer doing business in the Third District Mr. George attempted to oommit suicide abont two months ago by jumping off the Third District Ferry and was rescued by the offioers of the boat D0ISGS OF THE POLICE BOARD The Charges Against Capts. Flan agan and Schreiber Taken Under Advisement. The Polioe Board met Monday morning.in regular session, C. C. Antoine, President, in the chair, and all of the commissioners pre sent. The first case taken np was the charges against Capt ThomaB Flanagan, Sixth Pre cinct, who was engaged in the late'disturbance at Joe Starling's saloon, on St Charles street, in whioh the Superintendent was assaulted. The following are the specifications of the charges: ' That the said Thomas Flanagan, while under the influence of liqnor, did on the morning of the 14tn*of March, 1876, between the honrs of 1 and 2 o'clock A. M-, in Joseph Starling's saloon on St Charles street, insult, strike and assanlt W. F. Loan, Superintend ent of Metropolitan Police, and did draw his oistol with intent to kill the said W. F. Loan, : n violation of rules 9 and 146 Police Manuel. Capt Flanagan pleaded guilty to all the charges, excepting the last He stated he drew his revolver, bat did not intend to kill the Superintendent The case was taken un der advisement' The case of Capt. Schreiber was next He pleaded not guilty to the charges of drunken ness, disturbing the peace, assanlt and bat tery with intent to kill, and conduct unbecom ing an officer, committed on tbe same night at the same place. Several witnesses were examined, and the matter taken under advisement The board will decide in both of these cases at its next regular meeting on Wednesday.

He Kills a Cincinnati Officer. His History Here. An Old Pal of Munson Alexander CoL Loan yesterday reoeived the following dispatch from the Chief of Polioe of Cincin nati, Ohio, asking for information oonoeraing a noted burglar and murderer: To Chief of Polioe, New Orleans : L. H. Smith, alias Bowmao, an old New Orleans thief! murdered one of my men Satur day night He (Smith) was a partner of Munson Alexander, who was killed by Deteo - live Devereanx two years ago. Write all yon know about him. Show this to Gallagher, of Louisville. T. E. Snedbackxb, Cincinnati, O. Capt Malone, Chief of Detectives, steten that Smith, alias Bowman, -whose right namn is Tate, was arrested in this oity by the late Capt Yonenes, at that time Captain of Police^ in the year 1853, oharged with burglary at Holmes's dry goods store, on Canal street. He was tried, convicted and senteneed to serve a term of Beven years in the Louisian« State Penitiary. He remained in the Peni tentiary for about three years, when he man aged to make his escape, and nothing wan heard of him again until the latter part of the year 1869, when he again turned np in this eity, and was arrested late at night by Décrives Diepert and Cain, in the Tivoli Oirale, charged with ganoting and killing » gentleman named Chandler, a liqnor mer chant doing business on the New Basin. It was a well-known and established faot that the notorious Smith, in company with one of his pals, named Red Lind-ey, oanght Mr. Chandler at the head of the New Basin, on his* way home from the theater, for the purpose of robbery, as he was known to carry with him large amounts of money; and with the intention of plaoing him in an insensible condition, Smith ohoked him to death while Lindsey Bearobed him and took his money. An affidavit was made, and on the testimony ot Detective Diepert he was sent down. Hn was also oharged at that time with breaking and entering Hawkins's Saloon, on Common street He blew open the Safe after entering the saloon and succeeded in making off with $350 that was deposited in the safe the night previous. Detective Diepert was the principal witness for tbe State in both of these eases. But after the ea es had been sent before tbe Distriot Conrt by the Recorder, aud before they wars tried, Deteotive Diepert died. He remained in jail for over a year, and was finally released, there being no evidence that coaid have oon victed him other than the testimony of the detective, which was very strong. Capt Malone, immediately after his relates on those charges, re-arrested him, charging him with being an esoaped conviot from the State Penitentiary. Capt. Hayden, who had been oonnected with the Penitentiary for thirty odd years, came tA New Orleans shortly after his arrest on that charge, and identified him as being an escaped conviot He was taken back to the State Penitentiary in oharge of Capt Hayden, where he remained in custody for abont a year, when he was pardoned ont by the Governor of the. State. It was a well known faot in polioe circles, although the» was no direct testimony against him, that ha entered the grooery store of A. Phelps, at the corner of Felicity and Prytania streets, in company with Mnnson Alexander, one of his pals, where a safe was blown open and n large amount of money abstracted therefrom. Smith and Monson Alexander about the same time committed varions daring and bold burglaries in thiB eity, and Smith managed to get ont of town before he could be arrested by the polioe, who were on ths lookout for him, and knew that be was plying his* nefar ious occupation in this oity. Smith; alias Bowman, alias Tate, was a gérons man, and carried ont his ooonpation in this oity before he was arrested by Capt. Yonenes for several years, and was at that Hmy classed as an old-time English thief! The Chief of Polioe of Cincinnati has him in custody now on a oharge of killing one of his men in cold blood, and it is to be hoped that the punishment he so justly deserve« will be meted out to him, as he is a «mi that would stop at anything to aooomplish hie ends.__ THINGS WORTH KNOWING.

The reason why milk froths in churns is that, when it sours, alcohol is formed by the decomposition of the sugar of milk, and this causes the milk, when shaken or beaten, to foem or froth. If this froth ex ists to e large extent, butter will not oome. and the milk is useless for ohurning pur poses. Tbe longer a cow is milked after calving, ths less is the yield of batter, and the leas nourishment is then contained in her milk.—Land and Water.
