Songs, Dances, Ac. AMERICAN CONCEET HALL, 444 Broadway, N.Y For the defence, the two cartmon and another witness Mr. Storey, Michael O'Brien, Mr. Parks aud Anthony Carman, who were present at tho levy, swore that no violence was used beyond Iho force requisite in wresting tho butler pail from the plaintiff, who fell upon her knees and was dragged upon the floor; the Constable said ho would have to arrest her if she did not keep qniet. An' execution on goods of Ferdinand Pretzer, amounting to $40.

wnfl put in as evidence, whereupon Mr. Ware ing remarked That goods to the amount of $300 were carted away, and lurihcr Uiat the palls or butter had come into tho store that very morning and could not be included in tho inventory attached to the execution. Ferdinand Pretzer, huslmnd uf complainant, was placed on the stand, lie left home on the morning of the 6th int. on coming homeatniglit everything was gone Lant had made a levy on the store three or four days before the butler came in that morning the goods carted away, at wholesale prices, would fetch $240 or $250. There was a blast and counterblast from tho learned counsel, of course, in which Bomo hard hits were ox changed.

When tho oratorical metre had been exhausted, Jusiice Cornwell delivered Judgment. It did not seem clear to him that the constable had gone there with any intention or excessive distress, and whatever of violence had been used was caused by Mrs. Pretzer's resistance. On the other hand ho thought such resistance natural on her part, the butter not being included in the levy. He did not see how he could hold either of the parties to answer, aud Uiereforo would dismiss both complainants.

The goods lcvied.on, it is understood, have been replevtued. To Residents of Greenpoint. Those residing at Greenpointcan have the Daily Eagle regularly served by leaving their name and reai dencewith the Post Master at that place. BitooKi.TN Fact Established Ten Tears The Incomparabiltty of Williamson's Photocraphs and Annual Ball and Drill of Company B. The annual ball of the National Guard has beon looked forward to for years as an event in military circles.

Not only were the re unions got up under the auspices of the company among the pleasantest of each successive season, but the Nationals showed by their annual drills, which has always been a feature of their entertainment, that amid the mutations of time and change the reputation of the National Guard, early acquired and generally acKnowledged, snowed no diminu tion. Perhaps ot tne eany nienioers oi me Guard not ten remain, but the spirit of the corps has never been relaxed, and none of its members hove forgotten that they had the reputation of the crack company of perhaps tuts country to maintain. Since Captain Sprague firBt took command of the Guard he has educated almost two generations of our volunteer militia but the pride that his company should excel does not relax for an instant. On a recent occasion when on account of a difficulty, which it is not necessary to more than allude, half of his command fell away from him, military men who took no interest in the quarrel regretted it, because they believed that it would be impossible to again collect a company in Brooklyn that might fairly challenge comparison with any organization of the kind anywhere. But the indomitable energy, end the ability ol Captain Sprague as a military officer, has shown his friends that the corps he commands shall maintain its character while he is at its head.

Lost ever ing the annual ball and exhibition drill of the "Old Guard," now known as Co. 13th Regiment, took place at tho Academy Music. When the expense necessary to so ex ttrnsivean undertaking is considered, it will be confessed that it was a hazardous experiment for a single military company' to undertake. But the company relied on the host of friends that annually rallied round them, and were not disap pointed. Despite the severest night of the season the ball was attended by a very large and fashionable company.

While in point of num bers the Fire Department ball was somewhat superior, and there were generally more costly at ured lames at the opening ball, the ball of Co. had its distinctive excellence. On neither occassion did we observe so many young and gracefully attired ladies on the floor, and a large number of the gentlemen being ar rayed in military costume, the effect was exceedingly line. The stage was arranged as usual, except that one of Cilyo's handsome corridor Bcenes took the place of the national colors at the back. Two bands were provided.

one supplied the music for the dance, and in the intervals the other discoursed some of the choicest operatic gems. The exhibition drill with the sterner portion of the assembly especially, was looked forward to as the feature of the night. At eleven the stage was cleared, and in a few minutes after the'National Grey'e, 80 strong, were marched out from behind. They were drilled in Scott's tactics first by command, and their precision In every movement elicited loud applanse. Captain Sprague then took the drum and at each tap the men went through the movements as before, not a man at any instance makinp a single blunder.

The drum was then laid aside, and to test the perfect discipline of the men they wen through the same movement over again without any indication whatever. Without a word, or signal, or sign, the men went through the same movement, and if the corps machine like obeyed some guiding hand, their movements could not be me more simultaneous and more accurate. The "silent drill" was decidedly the feature of the evenintr. The Company then re tired and dancing was again in order. Since the Chicago Zouaves have visited U3, our military men in this and New York city have more or less given their attention to Zouive practice as a means of acquiring certain military habits that it Is desirable their men should have Captain Sprogue's company took the matter up late, but they determined last night to give their friends an opportunity of seeing the progress they had made.

The stage was again cleared and the guard appeared dressed a la Zouave. Red'pants reaching a little below the knee, hanging losely over white jackets and red caps, com pleted the eoBtume. The company marched ia quick and double quick time, broke into sections and squares, and again formed into line with amazingly celerity and accuracy. The knapsacks were then removed and the more peculiar features of the Zouave drill were shown. At the word of command each member of the company was down on the stage as if shot, at the word load, they turned over on their backs, assumed their former position and lircd with the same regularity as when going through the more familiar drill.

An American flag was brought on the stage, and in an instant, and with the quick Zouave yell, it waB defended by bayonets at every point, the band struck up the "Star Spangled Banner," and the patriotism of the house was aroused and found expression in loud applause. The ladies seemed greatly pleased with the Zouave drill, and joined in the marks ofapprobition. We append the names of those who took part in the drill Capt. SritAOUE.

A SOUTHERN CONFEDERACY FORMED, The Constitution of the U. S. Adopted. Montgomery, Feb. 4.

There have been unusually heavy rains within the past few Days throughout South Carolina, Georgia and Alabama, and as a consequence the creeks and rivers are full, and some of the rivers mark a higher stage of water than there lias been known for many years. It is unnecessary to state that much damage has been caused at Atlanta, on Saturday night. Tho train on the State railroad was twelve hours behind time and fears were entertained that some of the bridges on the route had been washed away or otherwise damaged by the floods. The regular passenger train from West Point, duo here at near noon, when within about three miles of this city, met with a serious accident to the cars and wheels, but no person was injured. The track was broken up for about fifty feet, the baggage and express cars were considerably smashed, and thrown disengaged from their trucks.

On the train were several delegates to tho Convention lion. A. II. Stephens, Robert Toombs, James Chiawell, T. J.

Withers, T. E. E. Cobb and others whose names we could not learn all escaped unhurt. There are not, so far as I can loam, more than twenty of tho delegates now present.

The others may reach here this forenoon. Like all other conventions, there ig much speculation indulged us to the gentleman who will be selected as permanent president, but it is geaerally considered that the Hon. Howell Cobb will bo chosen Other names aro meationed, bat that of Mr. Cobb ap pears to bo the mosi. talked aboui.

What will tho Convention do' I do not pretend to be able to state; but I am satisfied that a provisional southern government will bo formed, and that the constellation will in a few months number fifteen of the bright particular stars in the old confederacy. It will embody as much intellect, experience and statesmanship as convened in our country. But the Convention meets to day, and I am writing only a few words before the session commences. There is nothing new from Fensacola. Some few or pernapsa dozen ofihe soldiers who were stationed atl'en sacola, are here now on furlough.

They say that there are United States armed vessels off the port, and more are expected there. All was quiet. It is true that the Postmaster General has abolished the Post Office at Pensaco la, but there has been no material trouble experienced tbout it. Mails are made up and independent of the Post Office department and so it will be wherever post offices are abolished. The streets here are in a bad condition, and the Alaba.

ma river is up higher than for many years. There appears to be considerable trouble in the Legis. lature about the passage of a Stay law. The Ilouse passed a Stay law, but the Senate arrested ii in so many ways that it is now considered very doubtful whether any law satisfactory to both branches can be passed. Montgomery, Feb.

T. The Congress has secured an oflici il copy of the act of Alabama appropriating half a million dollars for the sup. port of the Provisional Government of tbe seceding States. But a short time was spent in open session. The committee on the plan of a Provisional Government reported in secret session.

It was discussed four hours, with much unanimity of feeling, when the Constitution of the United States was adopted, with some addition in relation to free trade with all the world. Adjourned to 11 o'clock to morrow. Two Days later from Europe. Arrival of the Canada. Halifax, Feb.

S. The 11. ir. steamship Canada, from Liverpool Jan. 2G via Queenstown 27, arrived outside at 3 o'clock this morning and arrived at her dock at 8 a.

m. The steamship Australasian from New Tork arrived at Queenstown on tl'e 26th. The Canada has $53,000 in specie. The London Times in another editorial on the American crisis is very bitter on President Buchanan. It says few men who have heen called upon to play such an important political part have been found so utterly unequal to their situation.

The bombardmeat of Gaeta continued, and occassione much damage. The Sardinians entered the Roman States on the 22d, dispersed the re actionary bands, and burnt the Convent of Casuzalia.

ONE MAN KILLED. Another Injured by the Fall of a Chimney. This moraine shortly after 3 o'clock, officer Geary, of the 3d Precinct, reported a (ire in tho Ocean Mills coffee and spice factory, No. 200 Fulton street. The premises were occupied on tho lower Door by Wright, illis it and tho upper floors by .1.

II. Ilaramand, as a tailoring establishment. The flames extended rapidly and soon enveloped the whole building in a blaze. The excessive cold prevented the firemen from working as effectually as under other and more favorable circumstances, and the flames communicated to the adjoining premises, No. 203.

The lower floor of this buildinc was occupied by Hodges Mooro as a commission paper warehouse. A large stock of this combustible material was on hand, and added to the intensity of the flames. The upper floor was occupied by William Adams as a hoop skirt manufactory. During the progress of tho fire, Joseph Skillman, a member of No. 15 Truck, was instantly killed by tho falling of a chimney, and 'William liunnett or the same company, was seriously injured.

Tho body of Mr. Skill man was taken to the Truck House, and Runnctt was conducted to the City Hospital. His injuries are represented to be of so serious a character that it is feared ho cannot survive. Both men are spoken of in the highest terms of praise by their acquaintances. They are extensively known in the Bowery as active, energetic firemen and upright citizens.

The buildings, with contents, were entirely consumed, but the total amount of loss cannot he correctly ascer tained. It is supposed however that the damage will exceed $25,000. Several of the Arms were insured, but in what offices could not be ascertained. The neighborhood is so full of ice as to make it almost impossible for vehicles to pass. Beaten nearly to Death.

This morning about one o'clock, as Officer C. A. Smith, of tho'llth Preeinct, was patroling his beat, ho heard the cry of murder proceeding from the house No. 11 Dry Dock street, and upon forcing an entrance found the occupant, Patrick Gallagher, prostrate on tho floor and covered with blood he being terribly beaten with clubs by several men, who lied when tho officer approached; and made their escape. Gallagher was attended to by a physician.

The Tide and the Boats. The gale of tnrday afternoon had the effect of lowering the tido to such a degree that at noon to day it became exceedingly difficult for teams to ascend the bridges from the boats on either side of the river. We have heard of no accidents of a serious character, although bumping against tho piers by ferry boata was no uncommon occurrence Annual Exhibition of Public School No. 15. The fine building in Powers street, corner of State street, occupied by Public School No.

15, was yesterday the scene of a success most gratifying to the numerous friends of education ia attendance. The occasion which brought to. gether so large a number of ladies and gentle meD, was the second annual exhibition or "reception," given by the pupils of this well conducted school. No. 15, is the largest school in the city, and has at present upon its roll, 1326 pupils, about seven hundred of whom are in the primary department under the care of Miss S.

J. Martir, and the remainder form tho fframmar classes, presided over by Mr. S. G. Taylor, the very efficient principal of the school.

The exercises of yesterday, consisted of singing, declamation, dialogues, and performances on the pianoforte, and were presided over by Mr. Cox, chairman of the local school committee, assisted by Messrs. Poole. Sprague and others. The Kev.

Drs. Farley and Eockwell were also among those present, and conducted the graver portion of the proceedings of this highly interesting occasion. In the forenoon, the little ones of the primary department, acquitted themselves most creditably in carrying out tbe programme laid down for their observance. Some of their dialogues were given with a spirit, and conducted with a self possession, fully entitling the little ones to the measure of applause which the thronged audience bestowed upon them. In the afternoon, "the big boys" and "the big girls" composing the grammar classes, gave their exhibition, which ot course was of a more ambitious character than that ot the juniors.

Their programme was quite diversified, and embraced the recital of original compositions of the pupils, some excellent declamations, and solos on the piano forte, given with a feeling and finish of execution such as to take theaudience quite by surprise. Indeed it is no exageration to say that the piano forte performance of some of the young sirls displayed an accuracy of finger that would do no discredit to many an ordinary concert room. We do not mention names, individually, of those taking part in the programme, for where all were really so excellent it would be invidious to particularize, but we will append the names of all the young missess and masters who took part in the exercises of the occasian, premisine that all, did credit to themselves and their efficient teachers. The following are the names of those promising pupils: Misses Habberton, Divis, Beatty' Robinson, Tulkenburgh, Davy, Walcoit, Coe, Suydam, Masters Crombie, McGeary, Palmer, Belton, Wheeler, Coggeshall, Addoms, Chalmers, Patterson. S'une niuely semi innuil ceriifieatt were distributed among the most meritorious pupils of the grammar cUsses.

At tbe close of the exercises some appropriate observations were addressed to the pupils by gentlemen present, and then after the bendicUon had been pronounced by the Rev. Dr. Rockwell, the large audience separated highly gratified with this interesting cxhibiiiun of proficiency displayed by tbe pupils of No. 15, to whom no doubt the day will be ever a memorable one.

Extraordinary attractions are offered at the Academy to morrow night the whole of the opera of Ernani will be given with Madame Col. son in the leading role, aDd M'ss Hinkley will appear in the last act of Lucia de Lammermoor.

This will give an opportunity of contrasting the voice and manner of both artists, and ol enjoying the exquisite singing of each. The night is set apart for the benefit of Madame Colson, which will be an additional inducement with her numerous admirers. We are glad to state that the success which has attended tie opera on this side of the water, has induced the Associated Artists to give us another season of six nights, commencing: on Tuesday next. An entire new series of operas will be given, and additional efforts will be made by the artists to show that they are not insensible of the support their efforts have met with in this city, so creditable to the taste of our music loving citizens, and so agreeably contrasting with the neglect of the New York opera goers. We bespeak for the second season the same success which has attended the first.

With the voice of Brignoli, in this favorite aira, still ringing in our ears we cm accord to Mr. Pereine konest praise. The audience enthusiastically requested a repetition, and "Donna Mobili" was substituted and rendered with equal satisfaction. On the whole, the Concert was an artistic and very well arranged affair.

DIED. Lines ON THE DEATH OF FOUR CHILDREN, WHO DIED IN TUE SHORT SPACE OF FIVE WEEKS. Over the river they beckon to me. Loved ones who've crossed to the farther side, The uleam of their snowy robes I see, liut their voices are drowned Jn tharushiDg tide. There's one with hrow of lofty height, And eyes, the reflection of heaven's own.

light: lie crossed in thetwilifiht ray iind cold. And tbe pale mist hid him from mortal We saw not the aogel who met him there, The tcsteaof the city we could not see. Over the river, over the river, My boy stands waiting to welcome me. Over the river, the boatman pale. Carried mother the household pel; Her brown curls waved in the gentle gale.

Darling Bella. 1 see her yet. She crotsed on her bosom her dimpled hands, And fearlessly entered the phantom barque; Wu watched it glide from ttie silver sands. And all our sunshine grew stramtely dark. We know she ia safe on tho further aiiie, "Where ah the ransomed and angels be; Over the river, the mystic river.

My childhood's idol is waiting for rae. For none return from those quiet shores. Who pays with the boatman joMand pale; We hetir the dip of the golden oars. And catch a gleam of the snowy sail And lo they have passed from our yearning hearts; They cross thestream and are gone for aye; We maynotsunderthe veil apart, That hides our vision the gates of day. We only know tDat their barque no more May sail with us o'er life'ssiormy sea; Ytt somewhere 1 know, on this unseen shore, They and beckon, and wait for me.

And I sit asd think, when the sunset's gold la flushing river, and hill and shore, I if hail one day stand by the water cold. And list lor the sound of the boatman's oar, I thall watch for a gleam of ihetlapoingsall; 1 shall hear the boat as it gains the strand; 1 sball pass from blglit with the boatman pale. To lhe better shore of the spirit land; I shall know the loved who have gone before. And joyfully sweet will the meeting be, When over ilte river, th peaceful river, 'flse Angel of Death shall carry me. W.

Col.

The City Guard of New YorK were largely represented and their gay uniforms offered a pleasing contrast to the graver colors of the civilians. We noticed also anumber of the Highland Guard of Heigh' wood Guard, of Hoboken, and of the Fox Guard, of New York. On the whole the Ball of Co.

was a great sue. success, and had it not been for the terrible severity of the night it would doubtless have been still more largely attended.
