7 V, MONDAY EVENING, SEPT. 4. This Paper has the lAWto. f any Evening Paper published ia the PnitedStates. Its value as an Advertising Medium, is therefore apparent. The Peculiarities of Crime, The prevalence of orime and violence during the past few months suggests some various refleclionB upon the peculiarities of crime'. The war has been accredited as the causa of violence, inasmuch as it caused undue excitement, and aroused the passions of the comma, nity, and murders,rapes and outrages followed as a natural sequence. It is noteworthy that most of these offences were what is technically called crimes against the person; outrages inspired by lust or vindictiveness. Later in the day came the defalcations in Wall street, traceable also to the war, and consequent speculative excitement ; these misdeeds were the,, result of disturbed and excited intellect rather than mere cupidity the wild passion for speculation or sensual enjoyment. Wo have also periods of criminal prevalence when orime seems inspired by cupidity, cool calculating villany; the era of burglaries, highway robberies, and counterfeiting. Crime, though as old as creation, changes with civili lation, and new laws are continually needed to tover new phases of evil - doing. There has Jeen in every age almost as much ingenuity ind fertility of invention in crime as in any onorable pursuit of life. Burglary has been devated to the dignity of an art by its professors, whose resources have baffled the ingenuity of the locksmith, and overy precaution that honest men could take to secure their property. The skill of the piokpocket displayed In any other field would oxoite general admiration, while the counterfeiter approximates in skill to the honest artist, and soon masters' any new device that inventive talent, inspired by as. surance of legitimate reward can conceive. These classes of depredators on property wage open war against the community, they are recognized enemies, and policemen and locksmiths are kept in commission as an army of defence. A series of heavy robberies usually evokes the cry, "where are the police,?"' ,AThe public do not feel shocked at the evidence of depravity these depredations give. But when a series of murders and outrages are reported, spreading like an epidemio from one section to another, making a oontinued series of horrors, then the community feels fl thrill of terror, for against these spasmodic outbreaks of passion there is no guarding. In crime roan is imitative; there is a fasoina - tion about deeds of horror, whioh often affects ill - balanced brains; a morbid craving seems to take possession of them, they lose control of themselves and feel impelled to do some act like that which their mind has been brooding over. Some twenty years ago a young woman committed suicide in a novel manner by precipitating herself from the top of a London monument. The singularity of this' horror attracted a great deal of public attention. In less than a week two other persons had flung themselves irom the monument, and two more were deterred from doing so only by the watchfulness of au officer who was stationed there to prevent further repetitions of the performance. When some inventive scoundrel applied the garroting principle to highway robbery, he found a ho3t of imitators, and garroting became so fearfully common that extraordinary measures had to be taken to put a stop to it. We seldom hear of any extraordinary or unusual crime without finding that it is followed by imitations as close as circumstances will admit One of the objects of our criminal code and sjstem oi punishment, is to prevent crime by the force of example, the punishmont meted out to evil doers serving as a warning to others. To an unfortunate wretch who remonstrated against his sentence, an English judge of the good old time when they hung men for petty larceny, said, "you are to be hanged, not for "stealing a sheep, but that sheep may not be "stolen. " This force of example is almost entirely lost at the present day, by the practice of our courts, which delays the trial and conviction of offenders so long, that their crime is forgotten before the punishment overtakes them. Lynch law has this to commend it, that its short, Bharp and decisive result strikes terror into the minds of the guilty, and promptly eradicates an evil at times when the legitimate laws are ineffec - ive. It is a remedy almost as much to be dreaded as a disease, but this one feature about it, promptness, is a virtue that we need adopt into the regular legal procedure. When an epidemic breaks out in a community, unusual measures are. taken to prevent a spread of the disease, and sanitary regulations are promptly enforced. Orime sometimes spreads like an epidemic over the country, and requires sharp and decisive treatment to check its progress, all that is needed is a prompt enforcement of iiie laws let the punishment follow jith a swiftness that will strike terror to the 'oiils of the evilly disposed. The recollections If the crime and its punishment should go "together, to curry out the preventive principle if our code, and the more heinous the crime, the more prompt should be the punishment. The present practice is just the reverse. The Democracy ot Kings County and the State Convention. In another part of to - day's paper we give what we believe to ba a fair account of the causes which led to the divisions in the councils of the Democratic party in Kings County. We do not propose hereto discuss the merits of the questions raised. To our mind it iB of little consequence whether existing divisions grew out of past personal disputes; whether the Fort Greene movement was right or wrong; whether it was polioy to commit the party to Douglas or to Breckenridge in 1860. All these things are now of no concernThe Democratic party of Kings County ought to be under the control of one organization, which will provide for fairly deciding the claims ot men within the party; whiah will be able to disregard or to punish internal disaffection and to present a compact front to its opponents. . A few men, from motives which it will be difficult to reconcile with a desire to see the Democracy of Kings County retain its old position in the great work of aiding in the restoration of all the States under the Constitution, stand in the way of this desirable result. In doing so we cannot believe that they have back of them any strength among the disinterested Democrats of the county. Every fair and honorable effort has been made to reconcile all factions - It the attempt ha3 not been a complete success, it was only because complete success was jjot possible. Those who have in the past profitted by divisions, will attempt to keep up dissension until they are convinced that the business is not a paying one; until they are 'assured from experience that the way to office of trust and emolument is not (through dissension, but through a hearty and zealous support of the party in its entirety. The movement for the reorganization of the party has ended in the formation of a Demo - .cratio General Committee, in whioh loading men "of' the party hot side by , side, who havenoVbeen able to to.BO.ftw years; As a natural consequence of. this agreement, the election of delegates to the State Convention, r - r 7 - .. fin the seletiOny.:of m MjUAg inert "of j - the 'pariyjrrespAsti' Qf.'vastV atpatidM with different factions. Leading Regu - - lars like . - Tunis J.. 'JBeigea jmd.MHenry 0. Murphy; leading Nationals suoh as John McNamee and Samuel B. Morris are for the first time in years enabled to act together, and wiU 'demaaorat Albany admission as the rep - " resentatiyes not of factions combined under a temporary truce, but of a united' organization. We believe the State Convention will not do its duty in shirking the settlement of this unseemly quarrel by its decision. Knowing that it will be vain , to 'unite the party in Kings County if the present effort fails; the representatives of the Democratic General Committee go up with the determination of being admitted as the sole representatives of the party in Kings County, or of returning disappointed. We have but to say to the State Convention that if the Voters represented by the delegation headed by Hon. Henry 0. Murphy are excluded, there will be very little left for the Democracy to fight about in this county. The Democratic party in Kings County has risked its , ascendancy in the effort to harmonize and purify its councils. The representatives of the Democratic General Committee will not come home to renew a quarrel which it is in the power of the State Convention to end. Every prominent man of the party gave his countenance and support to the movement for reorganization. In view of the apathy and mortification which would attend their defeat, the fate of the party in Kings County, would be a foregone conclusion. A compromise between the rival delegations would be a substantial defeat of all the efforts made to unite the party, and we are satisfied the1 State Convention will not give their countenance to anything of the sort. The rival delegation do not hope, and we believe will not ask to be admitted to the exclusion of the representatives of the General Committee. AU that they will ask is a compromise an admission in part whioh will enable them with a show of decency to come back and keep up a squabble whioh has all bnt destroyed the party majority in this county. Whatever the Convention may do it oannot do this. We roly with confidence upon the result, and are free to say that the future ascendency of the Democratic party depends upon it. So far as the Eagle ib concerned, if this quarrel iB kept up, it will most respectfully desire to be counted out. The Forty - seventh Infantry. The 47th N. Y. S. V. V. Infantry Regiment, numbering 580 mm, arrived yesterday at Jersey City, wbero it was received by Col. Jamas' L. Frasor, and es. corfed (o Ibe Battery Barracks. The regiment has been In service, for the last four years, and participated in S3 engagements. Where all have been so brave, itis almost invidious to particularize any one ; but few regiments have won a brighter recorder passed through more hard fighting than the gallant 47th, To this regiment belonged the distinguished Private Myles O'Beilly, and with them on the weary march or around the bivonact flre some ot his humorous and spirited effusions were written. We shall leave to the future historian the taBk of deciding. whether the " boy" conferred greater glory on the regiment, or the regiment on "the boy."

Bnowden, proceoded to Now Oaatlo yesterday moaning, for the purpose ofhavlHg exhumed tho body of Mrs. Orothers, one of tho alleged - victims of Mrs. Grinder. On reaching tho village cemetery, there was quite 'a crowd gathered from curiosity. The grave was speedily opened, and the case which csntainod the body was raised and placed upon a bier. On opening the case, the body was rocogn.zcd by Mr. G. Henderson, a relative, and by Mr. James Crothers; husband of the deceased, a miniature picture of the latter being found on the breast ol tho body. The body, although rapidly decaying, was in a anion better condition for the knife than that of Miss Buchanan, Dr, McCook took away the stomach, which was in a good state, leaving' the brain behind. The party returned to the city yesterday evening, tmd tho stomach will be given oter to Professor Wntb, who will analyse it with, a view of ascertaining whether prison was the cause of tie death of Mrs. Groth - ors.'Tho party are very complimentary in - their remarks of their treatment at the hands of conductors W.

History of Democratic Dissensions, THE FORT GREEfSie MOVEMENT. THE PERSONAL DISPUTES IN THE PARTY. The Be - Organization Movement. THE REPRESENTATIVES TO THE DEM - OOKATIO STATE CONVENTION. Power of the State Convention to End the SquabWe and give to the Party its Old Ascendancy. In the Democratic State Convention which will meet at Albany on Wednesday two sets of delegatefl will prcsentthemielves, each claiming to represent tho Democracy of Kings county. As is well known thero is no division in the ranis of tho party hores there is no question either looal or national upon which the party is divided . It is fair to assume that the politicians who are alone at issue, will acquiese in the decision of the tribural which they have chosen, and before vhich they will bo represented by an equal number of men selected it is to be presumed, for their ability to advocate thj clnime of their respective faitions. If the State Con vention does its duty in fearlessly deciding upon the respective claims of the rival delegations, we believe that both will submit We are satisfied that the rank and file of the Democracy of Kings county will not suffer themselves to be divided and beaten by the wraugllngs of politicians. It is for the State Convention to decide; the voters of the party will accept the decision, we are Batisned, with entire unanimity. Alt that they ask is that the Convention shall not shirk its responsloility by leaving the quarrel where they found it, sb they will in recognizing both factions in part sending them homo to tight ont tbeit quarrels at the polls with the certainty of defeat at the ensuing election, and with the equal certainly of prolonging existing divisions. The dtQV culiymuBt be boldly met eooner or later; there' is no better time to meet it than tho present. PEBSONAL DISPUTES. It is more or less a tedious business to attempt to give a history of the origin of the quarrel among the Demo - aratic politicians of Fings county and yet it must be at. tempted. In the first instance the divisions in the councils of the party had their origin in the personal difficulties of men of influence in the party, j There was a belief, whether well or ill f&nnded it wonld notv bo useless to inquire, ' that the control of the party had Jallen into tho hands of bnt a very lew men, and that no Democrat could hope to so. cure a nomlnaliou for office, no matter what his strength in the party was, unless be was able to 8ccur0 the favor of a single individual who, as was allegsd, ex. erclEed, through corrupt mean;, ascendancy in the then existing Democratic organiza Hon. This state of affairs led to tho formation of a Committee known as the "Na. tlonal," in opposition to tho then regular Committee. For a few years the quarrel waB kept up, and aB a consequence of it, the chief local offices in tho County passed into the hondB of the Republicans, who con tinned to slip In between the contending factions. The unfortunate divisions in the Connils of tbe party at large, growing out of tho settlement of the question of the status of negro slaves in the ter ritorles of the United StatcB, afforded a reasonable pretext for prolonging. a - local division which bad begun to create in tho minds of disinterested voters, unqualified disgust The " Nationals" endoiBed the nomination of Breck. enridge for President in 1800; - tjUpjigh tho Regulars were inclined to favor Douglas, no was never endorsed in their Committee. Before the quarrel had taken shape in 'hat year, a union of oil tbe threo con servative parties that bad candidates in the field tor the Presidency was effected in this State, and a joint ticket was placed in tho field. But the local quarrel was still kept up. The chief office to be filled in Kings county, in 1860, was that of Sheriff. For the office the Kegulara nominated Mr. Hugh McLaughlin; the Nationals, Mr. John McNamee. Both candidates were defeated, and Mr. Campbell, the Republican nominee, was elected, although hisparty was in a minority of between nvo and six thousand in this county, Mr. McLaughlin and Mr . HcNameo wore accepted, aB will be Been, aa the representative men o the contending factions, Tho leeson tauRht both Bides by defeat was not loBt upon them, and from this time a tacit understanding setms to have been aimed at, thar both the factiona Bhould agree to disagree, but should under an annual compromise, divide the ofhoes between both factions, and in tbi" way endeavor to patch up a ticket which should receive a Joint support at the polls. " JTOET GEEBJSfB " MOVEMENT, In 1661 what ia called the Fort Greene movement wa3 inaugurated, and this is still claimed to be ono ot the causes of existing trouble it will bo necessary to atterrvp fo throw some light upon it! In the early spring of 1861 leading men of all parties seemed to cling tothebBltef that the questions in dispute betweon the Northern and Southern States would be settled without a resort to arms. The delusion existed up to the time Fort Sumter was attacked. In July tho first great battle of the war was fought; it resulted in the disastrous defeat ot tho Dnion armies. It was clear then, and not before, that a war of unparalleled magnitude had been commenced - Though the Democratic leaders were unanimously of opinion that their opponents in the North were in no remote degree responsible for tho origin of the war, they committed themselves wltbout hesitation to the war, Blipulating only that it s'jould bo waged for the single purpose of restoring tbe Union under the constitution and that daring its continuance the liberties of ta people of tbe North should not be disturbed. The Republican party; then in a great majority in Congress, gave their asBent to. a resoluticn offered by Mr. Crittenden, of Kentucky, affirming that the war was not waged for the subjugation of (he South, or with the v ew of Interfering with its local institutions, but that it was waged for tbe restoration of the Union and for the supremacy of tbe Constitution ; that when these ends were attained the war ought to cease. This resolution practically united both parties at tho North in the war policy of the government, The. sincerity of the dominant party may be estimated by subsequent events. While clearly of opinion that the responsibility for the war rested upon the men whose opposition to slavery urged them to disregard the restrictions of the ' Constitution, equally with the original Southern Secessionists who did not deny that thi - y rejoiced in the opportunity given them of bringing the more moderate men of tho Sonth over to their eidc, tbo Democratic leaders were hardly prepared to defend their course immediately preceding the war, in view of subsequent events. , In January of 1861, a Convention of tbe Democratic) party was held at Tiveedle Hall, iu Albany. It was distinguished for the ability of tho men who took part in its proceedings, In that Convention resolutions .were, paaasd which placed the responsibility for the then threatening aspect of affairs upon tho Republican party. 8peo:hes were made which were received with warm and unanimous approval by the Conventipn,. declaring that tho Democratic party, Instead of joining either section to the quarrel, would come in between them, 'and. warning the New Kngland States .that If they persisted in a determination to settle the then pendlng. diluoultieB by flghtlng, the fight wonld commence, at home. '' This Convention had so important an inSoencje ,iii..tlevr England, that before sending the - first regiment raised for the war to' Washington, tha, authorities of New lork were asked if such a regiment ' could pass through New York with safety. The Repnb Iican leaders of the more : radical school had always held i that a Union with.tho slave States was .not worth main , tainlng, and as late B December of 1860 Mn Greeley in ' the Tribune explicit'v stated that if the.Southprn States desired to leave the Union there was no power' to prevent them that whatever might happen the Union could not be maintained through war, and tho North at leaBt would not try it, In view of theso, then recent utterances of opinion from both parties of the North, it was not without reason argued that the Southern poo - ' pip 'might be laboring under the dangerous delusion that, if they were able to prolong tho war for any considerable length of time, either one party or tho other at the North would throw, its influence in favor, if not of tho South; against at all events a further proseoution of the war. Nototog.'ttwss Mgued, keeps alive the re - ' bellion except a fallaoious idea on tho part of the South that the North Is d ivldcd . Let us unite in the support of a common ticket, and sink for tha present questions of party policy. ' This argument .had no little weight. The Democratic Convention nominated however a straight ticket. Two of the leading candidates upon i at once resigned, In' every county in the State joint ao. Hon betwkin tbe two parties wa tokn,'and in this county suoh action was inaagurateay the meeting on Fort Greene, which gave to the plan its title of tho Fort Greene movement. The National wing ol the party In (his county refused its co - operation. Mr. McLaughlin was nominated by the Fort Greene committee for Begls - ter, and. the Nationals sndorssii , tho nomination. The Nationals have attempted to make capital out of their action : in this reg'tcL. but it will be at once admitted tba If the raoyemant was wrong, those who proa(.&,.M'W$'V?a cd - H in the opinion of the Nationals tho Fort Greene movement was wWill'ifl' Inatlng the loading candidates of the Fort Greene patty, Henry O.

When it was found impossible to divide, equally, the difficulty was settled by cuacne; In one instance by lot In another, we believer by the toss - up of a penny' All will agree that suoh a syBtem oonii not; and. ought" not to be made permanent. ... when it was seen bow handsomely the Nationals had been rewarded for their opposition to the rival And. trade predominant faction, it occurred to politicians outside of both organizations thof they pould not do better than organize a third Committee, and claim a division of the spoils, under the threat f nominating a separate ttooet. Under the ."nefarious system oi dividing the offtoes, the party majority had been reduced ' frpm seven thousand in 1862 to leES than a few hundred tho majority for Mr McNamee, who was usually regarded as the most popu - , lar Democrat in the county. In the first year of the ex - , istenca of the Third Committee, though its candidates polled but about 2,000 votes, it bad strength enough to defeat tbe joint nominees of both Regular ana Nationals. In 1864, there were threo oornmittees in full blast, each of them demanding a share in the offices and each tbteatening that, in case these demands were not complied with to run separate Uakets. It was at once apparent that if a triple division was made, that it would be in effect establishing the principle that to obtain office all that was required woa to establish a '"committos" and it seemed probable thitihere would soon boas many committees' as there. were prominent oftioe seekers iu' tho county. The absurdity of tho whole business was at last recognized and with the consent of all parties it was resolved to reorganize and reform. THE ATHjBDETJM MOVEMENT. With thiaviw a meeting of the leadin g citizens ot Brooklyn was hed at,the Atheneum in October of list year.' Tbe meeting was made up of the leading conservative citizens of Brooklyn, and was preildod over by ex - Mayor Brush.' It was apparent to all from the character of the meeting and from the weight and influence of the men who took part in it, that if tke oo - operation of such men could be secured by. the contemplated reorganization that the Democratic party would be stronger in Sings County thin it ever was before. Every. Democrat .Was proud to see that tho party could 'Claim the leading - men of the city as of it. Au incident which, occurred at at the last meeting of tbo Convention for it was fn fjet a mass Cohventiop will well illustrate what w might expect if wo could secure the active co - operation of the class of men present men who had hitherto been ex - : oluded from all participation in the councils of the party. The State Committee of New York laid before the Convention a Btatement t the effeot that the supporters of Mr. Lincoln fpi; tha Presidency had been pouring money like water into Pennsylvania to carry that State against McCIellan. To offset their efforts it was deemed necessary to raise money out of the State. Eight trioui ana dollars were subscribed on the spot by tbe Convention. Oiving'to the near approach of the election, it was deemed proper to defer the proposed re - organization until after the election. A Committee was appointed, of which Henry C. Murphy was Chairman, to oarry out the purpose for which the movemonthad been inaugurated. Under the power thus conferred, representitives were invited from the "National," Regular and Montague Hall Committees. A resolution wis passed by tho Citizens' Committee to the effect that a commltee of two from eaoh of the four organizations should ne appointed with lull power to agree on a plan for morging all sections of tho party into one Committee. AU that was demanded was that, as a preliminary, all the then existing factions should agree to disband their organizations and agree to the result of tho labors of the joint committee; in which each faction was equally represent, ed, To this agreement tho Citizens', Regular and Montague Hall Committees agreed and from that moment those committees wore disbanded. The Nationals btill held out, but in consequence of their factiousness the Chairman of the Committee and nearly one half its members, wont over to the new movement. The result of the labors of the joint Committees was the formation of THE D1MOCBATIC OBNEEAL COMMITTEE OF KINGS COUNTY. That this Committee embraces all the old discordant elements is evident from a glance at the names of the men composing it, that the party is substantially united in Bhowing fair the representatives it has chosen to represent the Dcmocraoy of Kings County at Albaoy, on Wednesday next. The following is the list of Delegates and Alternates; 1st DlBtrlct Delegate, Tennis Or. Bergen. " Alternate, G. W. TOtxnan . 2d District Delegate, H.C. Murphy.

It is not too much to say that no delegation of equal strength ever represented the Democracy of Kings County in any contention,.., 'There are men here siilo by side who have not been enabled to act together in years. Going over the list, we And it beaded by TEtmis G. Besoek, member of Congress elect, ex. Obahrnan of the late Regular Committee, and for a generation an active worker in the ranks of the Demoiratlo party. His Alternate, Mr. Whitman, acted with the National p&rty heretofore, and was their nominee to tbe Assembly, to which body lie was elected by the votas of both the old factions . Henbt C. Munrrre is recognized in the State as the representative Democrat of Kings County, and perhaps ho man enjoys tho confidence . of the party to the samo ' extent. When hardly of age, bo' was elected against the - Whig party then in a majority here Mayor of Brooklyn. . He has twice represented the District in Congress, where he acquired anational reputation, as was shown by the fact that he wsa chosen in I860 to represent the country ss Minister to tha .Hoguo. Twice elected to tho State Seriate; Btlll full Of mental vigor, there is no place in the gift of the party t? - which he may not reasonably aspire.. Of Ms alternate, 3&r..

Chicago' National ''.faojpv'tnttojji, It is doe to him' to say that no man risked mdro or worked harder to bring about tbe present gratifying promise of a united ' party. Mr. 'Morris was in the past the reo'ognlzed leader of the National wing1 of the party. Mr. Doyle is an un. assuming but a hard - working member of the party. He represents a class of bdr jcitlzens justas fully aB any of his associates. , 'Jambi B. Cbaio is - an energetic! yeung Democrat; knows everybody at Albany and is known by everybody. Hia alternate JohnD.

That such men have been elected proves to a demonstration that the movement for a ieoiganlzatibn is successful. Itneeds but the en dorsementofthe State Convention to crown with complete success the movement of last fall. We hope tho Convention will not dodge its responsibility by offering a compromise. The State Conventions have compromised the party about to death in this county, Another compromise win give it its final coup. Compromise will not give harmony but it will cause a reaction from which the party cannot recover in years, leaving the old battle to bo atill f cngbt out. It can. now be settled, settled to tbo eatleJicUon of tbo party, and even, to that pf tbe, ppllilctans who are making a last andfeeble effort to prolong a system whioh has id a few years cut down our majority of thousands to a few hundreds. !)nnmenUi 4& PABK&a&tffJfa4W ir'ipeatrejfoit thavjnp the. .puis marttaement of MrsrF.

We have before' given the details of tbe improvements whioh' have - been blade in the theatre during tho rommer vacation, and wo have only to Bay now, that the audience scorned to be exceedingly well; pleased with the general appearance of the. house. The piece selected fpr the opening, waa Tobin's comeday ot tho "Honoym'oon,'' with,' the Joliowln,. cast: - ' ' i ' . - DnkeAranza .........Mr. F..B. Conway ' Rolando.

Howard While aa a literary composition we havo never much admired "Tho Honeymoon," the plot being a sort of a Siamese twin arrangement, iu which three or. four pairs of young people aremaking love to each other in the most independent way, but the various oouples havtnt - no more relation to each other, so far as the unity of the plot is concerned, than is contained in tbe fact that they are mere lay figures, revolving without any apparent ob ject around the principal characters, Duke Aranza and Juliana. Still it contains a great many good acting points, end this makes tbe piece a favorite with tbe theatrical profession, and probably has enabled it to keep is place on the stigo longer than it would otherwise have done. Mrs. Conway's Juliana was like every character essayed by her, a most finished performance, and in the cottage scene where she is made to believe by the Duke Aranza (Mr. Conway,) that instead of being the wife of a duke, aa she supposed, she was only the spouse of a poor peasant, her acting was all that could be desired, and brought down the house In an enthuiastlc round of applause, which by the way was accorded to all the old favorites of the company on their entree. Bier toilette was of that characteristic kind - combining neatness and taste with richness, fcr which Mrs. Conway has always been noticeable, Mr. Conway, in tbe character of Duke Aranza, was excellent, aB ho generally is In whatever he undertakes. Mr. James Duff, in the roll of the rollicking Rolando, the woman hater, was unusually good, while Mr; Davide, as the mock Duke, was' in his happiest humor and kept the audience on the brood grin, while' he held his place on tbe stage. Messrs. Rogers, Stuart, W, Davldgo jr., Parker, Mrs. Howard and Miss E. Johnson were allvery well up in their parts. . Ofthenew additions to the company, only Mibb Viola Barrett was in the cast, as Volante. Sho is a liandBomo brunette, with a clear, ringing mozz syprano voice and a fine figure. The character of Volante did not give her muoh ohance for tho display of her powers, but what there was in it she most of and created considerable enthusiasm among tho audience, who are evidently prepared to make a pet of her. In the musical comedietta of tho Swiss Swains, which followed, she had a chance for the display other musical abilities. Her voice (as we have said) Is a mezzo soprano, fri - th arid pure in quality, while her Intonation is.petfeof, a quality not often fond on the stage. She made a decided hit in her singing. The orchestra, under the direction of Mr, Bcissenberz, played very acceptably, and on Iho whole the new company promises to be very Buccessful . To night Mr. Ohippendalo bis debut in "Tho Rivals." Opesing of Hoolex's Opeba House. Tonight Mr. Hooley will open bis new Opera House for tho season. We havo already protty fully described the building and Mr. Hooley's pious ior the season. In looking over tbe list of members of the new oomp&ny, we find several of the old favorites, suoh as Griffin, Patkerson and Herman, with an Infusion of new goniut. For end men he has first, the renowned George Christy, of whom we can say nothing that the public do not know already. George is a thorough artist, and haB held the highest position in his profession lunger than any other man ever did. The other end man is Denny Gallagher who is anew comer.but he brings credentials from "down eaBt," which warrant tho expecttitltnfthat he will keep even with George, and that tbe two will make ono of the Btionge&t teame Hooley has yet had. The rest of the company we will let speak for themselves, except Tony Denier, who is an old Brookljnite; he has been abroad for some time, and comes back now with a big reputation. As a pantomimlst Denier will take rank with the Ravels. His engagement is an evidenco thog manager Hooley means to have the now feature of bl3 entertainments, the pantomimes, kept up to tho standard of excellence he has adopted in the regular branch of his proiesston.

Just hero, one 'word : is ' necessary': Already several titneB this Beasori, one of the rules of tho ConvenUoi:'ho'a teen' Openly 'violated. The rule 'declares that "no person shall bo permitted to play in any matoh game, unless he'shall have hepn a member ot tho.olubinwbloh.ho plays, and of no' other club ia or. outeide the Cpnyerition, fpr Che space, 'of, thirty 'daya.' But a week pr Bdqgo, Hatfield played in the Gotham nine una JiuiCUIUIIUCBDOJJIIUJU nag OOBU a UlOnibtS of the Active Club, bj his ;6wri admission, but tbroo or four dan. Upon tbe plea that . there was no other sub - ' stliuto present, the Actives asked permliBlou. to put in' Hatfield ror a few innings, until somo oao else should arrive. The Enterprito boys allowed It. Here is whero .they did wrong. Had they insisted that they could be i no party to; a wllfull breach of Oonvoutlon rules, tho ; Batter would have not been pressed. . They had no right :t0,Hi.Uitl!mki?.,,!' k8ui no. matter if bSlU ; parties were wllljngjit Is aUogeihor probable .thjt; like the Atlantic and Mutualgame at Hoboken, when Thorn was permitted to play in violatios of tho came rule botu ' games will be thrown out by the next convention, If ; rules.are mode by tbe mass ef deleeates represented in ' Convtntton, each and every cub should do everything ' to make thoso lutes, bihding - . It won't do to Bay that unless . Hatfield had played thero could have been no game, for there were plenty of young Aottves on the ground. To be Burc, they could not have dono as well ; as Hatfield, for few can do bettorthin he,, but still others could have filled the position and no rules would have been broken. Itis high time thla thing was put an end to, and if no other method obtains, the Convention sbould promptly censure the club bo acting, and throw the games out altogether. The presence of Hatfield with his superior fielding, went a great way t wards the defeat of the Enterprise. In one innings a long ball was struck just, fair, which Hatfield took on tbe fly, that most oroinary fielders wouldhavo lost. This oatoh drew a "blank" with two men on bases, ' which had it passed the fielder, would havo secured threo runs. Hatfield, too, at the bat was heavy, striking' safe' balls, and thonsh not making much of a score himself, bringing others home. The Enteiprlse sine lias hot yet reached its . proper degree of steadiness. There Is certainly material enough in this club to form a winning nine, but, their claims are ignored. Dick played as catcher, and his play 6a Satuday was the best he has shown thus far this season. He did not make a miBscatch oil through the gam's and his batting wsb very heavy arid valuable. Dick should play tbe 1st base In the regular nine, when Wes. Cor nu ell is there, to officiate as catcher. - .Cornwall throws to tbe bases'better than .Dick did on Saturday. Connorton'a pitching is very effective. Ho pitches very swiftly, but he has one fault which ho may as well overcome right away. He threw fn 4 runs, on Baturdy, by wild playing to the bases, at a time - too when the runs in helped, to put thq AcHv'es;"ahead'i)f;the Enterprise, leland was only fair at 1st base'. He appears to be afraid of the .ball, and - that will never do in a first class ball pla'jor; Take Start, Crane arid Charley Smith for instance; they are model basemen, and they bavp no fear of the ball at all Timid players are moro apt to get hurt than risky . ones, arid nq play, r can expect to succeed' at playing, if he shows ariy fear. Eb. Smith did not appear to play with any spirit on Saturday; Generally sure and steady, his play of Saturday wasin very strange contrast. Henry did well, and he will mako a very flno 8u baseman. Be made one fine foul fly catch, F.dtvaids played very acceptably, and batted finely. He had ill luck thouah being put out by his successor on the bases. " Murdoch" bad no cbanoe to' shotv hicdself 'at right field, but at the bat he was extremely heavy, sooringa home run from a bcauUtul hit to right field, Jewell made aomo very .lino fly catches, but 'loot one vory'ira - portiat ball. His batting was very heavy; and a fine home run was credited htm. ' Cook played tho left field, as he alwayB does well. He " cooked" every ball at all get - at - able, ono of his fly catches being a beauty. His batting was not as safe as usual. i - Tho Actives, too, played well, and only because the ganiB was sharply played was it Buch a short One. Play did not commence until alter 4 o'clock, yot it waa erided before halt - past six. Partly, this may be attributed to a rigid obsejvance of the 6th and 89th rulos by tho Umpire. Baus and strikes were called, and bases givon for failure on part of players to live up to tho rules. Stock - ham pitched very well, though a little wild, and Kelly caught finely. Rooney handled let base iu goad Btyle, as did Page the 2d and George the 3d. Pagp made a fine one hand stop, and tbus secured a double play. Ebbetts, Tandernirken, Hatfield, and Crawford, all played well, and batted strongly. Leland and Crawford led tiio seoro on the respeclive sides. No less than 7 homo runs wore made in this game, which will give some Idea of. the batting score. The ball was duly presonted by Mr. Muruock, and received by Mr, Page.
