FECHTER’S DEBUT ; __ as Edmund Dantes, at the Grand Opera-House, on Monday evening, pros an immense success. <» Monte Cristo” was put upon the stage with all the care and splendor that have marked Augustin Daly's management from the first. *Thft dramatic version of Dumas’ novel can hardly be called felicitous; but Fechter’s*;impersona tion of the hero is most vivid/ intense, and pic turesque. He excels in just such parts, and, aided by Daly’s enterprise and liberality, his nervous and romantic acting has a most worthy and gorgeous setting. No drama that X can re call has oeen so finely mounted, and I am sure it will enjoy uninterrupted prosperity until the end of the season. Daly merits, and can hardly fail to receive, the fullest success for his very liberal management of the Grand Opera-House. SALMAGUNDI.

A Panic In Stoclts--Miscellaneou» Bu , rtiora--Iteview of the Money, Gold, Bond, StocJt, and Produce Markets* " Special Ditpatch to The Chicago Tribune. ' Mew Yoke, May 3.—"Wall street, onUido of the stock market, in which there has been a panic, was exceedingly dull to-day; The hank state ment, while it does not show the foil return qf currency from the interior, is very favorable, the gain in net reserve being §3,029,700. If the cur rency receipts of the express companies have been correctly reported, at least §20,000,000 have come back since the first week in April Within a week or two this must show in the bank state ment, as the money market within that time will have passed the bounds* where it pays for speculators to, withhold from §5,000,000 to §10,000,000 from the market. With the heavy gain in reserve, the. loans have been expanded less than §1,600,000. The banks now hold §2 720.425 in lawful money above the 25 per cent requirement. The National Banks have a borcontage of reserve to total .liabilities of on 24-100 per cent, and the State Banks, * which are not required to keep a 25 per cent reserve, of 25 98-100 per cent.

The general market made an improvement at the opening of Hto per cent, but commenced to weaken before the First Board.

During the afternoon* there were occa sional spasms of weakness, but there was an advance in the main of % to 3%* from .the low est point. The break was caused by disgrace ful canards circulated by some parties in the “bear” interest, ‘that three or four of the strongest houses on the street had failed. These stories were manufactured here yesterday af ternoon, and spread broadcast through the principal cities of the West. This morning the brokers here were astounded by the receipt of telegrams from their country correspondents Inquiring if ' this or that house had failed. Inquiry necessary to reply to these tele grams caused the stories to ■be floated in tho Stock Exchange that some heavy failures had been made and this demoralized the mar ket.' The raid was made on Pacifio. Mail, aided by reports that the Howe Sewing Machine Com pany and A. B. Btockwcll were in trouble, and Mail stock was hammered down about 7 per cent. All the stories were soon contradicted, and later in the day, the favorable bank state ment gave a strong tone to the market, but it was nevertheless feverish all. day.

Commissioner Brunot’s Ad -f' herence to the Peace ; Policy. piipatcKto The Chicago Tribune. i Washington, May 3.— There are not sufficient grounds forihe reports that the Sioux and other Tndia.nH re moving southward across the Union Pacific Railroad from, their, reservation, in Southwestern' . Daokta. By the stipulations of the treaty -made by Gen. ' Sherman and other Peace Commissioners of the Govern ment in 18C8, these Indiana, are allowed to hunt over a large tract of country outside of their permanent reservation, and.the Indians who are now moving' southward are' simply going to the Smoky-Hill Pork of the Republican River, in Kansas, to avail themselves of the privilege af forded them by the treaty. No trouble is antici pated at the Interior Department from this movement, unless some difficulty should arise between the settlers and the Tnflmnß growing out of misapprehension. As the country over which these now have the privilege of hunting, is being rapidly settled, the danger of ■ a collision: tween the settlers and these hunting expeditions increases every year, and_ it has been in contem plation by the - Interior” Department for some time past to send out a Commission to see if the Treaty of 1868 cannot bo so modified, in view of possible complications infuturo, as to withdraw thei permission to hunt outside of the reserva tion in Dakota. • [To the Associated Press.] .

The plants are sent in packages, each containing 250. They left Glasgow on the 18th of April, and will arrive at New York in a few days. It is thought that these trees will be peculiarly suited to the plains, as -they are very . hardy, and * of. free growth. The same firm proposes, if -it is acceptable to the Department to make another shipment of 70,000 of the same kind of plants. The plants average eighteen inches in height, and theDommisaioner of Agriculture proposes to distribute them in the original packages from New York to parties who desire to test their ulitity, and are willing to incur the expenseof their transportation • from New York to their placo of destination. * For some time past the .Government Printing- Office has been turning out a large amount of work, in order to get all the public documents ordered for thia year in the hands of Congress men In time to enable them to send to their constituents before the'expiration of the frank ing privilege on the Ist of July.

IN MEMORIAM. ®he JLate Bishop Mcllyalne—Congress- man Jamei Brooks. New Yobe, May S.— A committee of thirty-five citizens baa been appointed from the Episcopal churches of this city and Brooklyn to properly receive the body of Biahon MeHvaine, and. to co-operate with the Hector of St. Paul's Church in making arrangements for the impressive ser vices which are to take place' there. Bishop Potter, of New York, will preach the funeral sermon, and most of the clergy of the city and neighborhood will assist at the services. - Ar rangements have been made for the reception of the commitee appointed by the Diocese of Ohio, who will conduct the remains from this city to their final resting place in that State. The re mains of the late Bishop will be removed from the city of Baltimore to-morrow. A London correspondent, writing on the 19th of April, says: "The body of Bishop Mollvaine arrived in this city on the 14th, and was imme diately taken to Westminster Abbey, it being the first time that the remains’ of an American Bishop have rested even for a few days In this burial place of England's honored dead. The Bev. Mr. Stanley, the Dean of Westminster, was an acquaintance of Bishop Mcllvaine, and to show Us respect for the deceased, and to gratify American Episcopalians, arranged for the spe cial funeral services of the 18 th. When the cof fin had been placed in front of the sacrarium, the services at t once began, but instead of the Sialms appointed for the hunal service, the aster day anthem, ‘Christ, our Passover, is. sacrificed for us,’ was sung, and Canon Conway read, as the lesson, from 1 Thess. iv. 13 to 19. The choir - heard a 'voice from Heaven,’ and the Dean read the con cluding parts of the service, commencing, ‘Lord, have mercy upon us.* The service was conclud ed after the hymn ‘The-saints on earth and : those above/ had been sung. After the bene diction many of those present lingered to take a last farewell of the remains of the Bishop, wUch were enveloped in three coffins, the outer one being covered with black cloth, and these words were inscribed on a brass plate: *O. F. Moll vains. Bishop of OUo; Bom Jan. 18, 1799; Died March 12, 1873.’ The whole ceremonies in the Abbey lasted about thirty minutes. The Bev. W. J.. Lawson, of the American Chapel, Paris, has charge of the remains of the late Bishop. They were placed under.his ears in Florence, where the Bishop died, and ha accompanied them to London, whence, at - the earnest solicitation of the American Minister, he continued with bis charge to this country. Mr. Lamson has letters of introduction to the Collector of the port and a large number of prominent citi zens, requesting that the utmost respect be shown to the remains of the deceased Bishop. Owing to .delay in’ giving information to the ‘Committee at the time when 'the' city of 'Baltimore would reach her dock, no member was •present when the vessel was moored. Soon af terwards, however, the Bov. T. S. Yocum, T. G.

There will also be present Bishops Littlejohn, of Long Island; Winiams, of Connecticut’; Odenheimer, of New Jersey; Doane, of Northern New York, and Cot of Western New York.

The burning of a dead Prince in India is rath er expensive. A letter in the London Timet de scribes -the combustion of His Highness, the ■ Maharajah of Jondhpore. ' The corpse was dress ed in royal robes of brocaded cloth, and. decked out with jewelry valued at 876,000. In front 'of the funeral’ procession walked two elephants laden with gold and silver coins to the amount of 862,500, which were scattered at every hundred, paces among the spectators, to be scrambled for. The corpse, shawls, and jewelry were all thrown together .upon the burning pile. From the day on which His Highness died, 5,000 Brahmins reg ularly received food .and a largess of, a -rupee each at the palace gates. All the inhabitants, by way of expressing their grief, shaved off their, beards, mustaches, and the hair of their heads. The lamented Bajah left behind him a neat as sortment of wives and-concnbiues, who were, many of them, extremely desirous to be burned with their ■ late lord, some_ because they were, really grieved. at bis loss, and others because it was - the fashionable thing.

The Boarders at the Union Park — Hotel in Distress," i; ‘ The" Owner of the Property Seizes - Their Trunks and Bars v< - Them Out. I The boarders at the Union Park Hotel, on west Madison, street near Bishop court, were turned out of doors' yesterday morning, and obliged to seek lodgings elsewhere. Their hag. gage wits seized and they were beside themselves with excitement. It appears that the landlord made a verbal agreement with the owner of the property to make some improvements—knock down several partitions and pot in a flight of stops where they were needed. The' owner, who is said to be somewhat oloaefiated, failed to malra the alterations, and the landlord' declined to pay him the rent. -The owner - said nothing until the end of the months imagining that the landlord would relent. He, however, failed to pay the rent when due, and the ownel prepared himself for a coop d’etat, and, yeater* day morning, when - all' the male board, era were absent, appeared with' several constables, and,' by virtue of tho writs they had, forthwith took possession. Every thing in the house was seized, and the doors of the rooms locked so that nothing conld. be re. moved. Women and children were turn ed into the street, and when ' their husbands and - parents came home at noon for dinner' they were astounded. In fress to the hotel was denied every'one, and ence lodgings had to be secured elsewhere. To-morrow morning about forty suit* will be commenced: against the owner of the hotel, will be supplemented by one for a larger sum than all- the others combined, in which tho proprietor will be the complainant. The wearing of the beard was, by some ca tions, strictly regarded as areligious rite, from which no • dispensation was possible. Even its management became a matter of grave im-, portance. The Tartars estimated the Persians as no better than infidels, forasmuch- as they would not adopt their custon of cutting the whiskers. A long and ' sanguinary war was waged, owing to their obstinacy, which arose from a national sense of honor. 80-highly, did the Persians value, the beard that, according to St. Chrysostom, their Kings had tv>ia natural appendage woven or matted with gold thread... This style of hirsute ornamenta-. lion was improved upon in subsequent ages by! the rulers of * France, who had their flowing beards fastened with gold buttons. None peed be told what a vast value the Turks set upon ; their beards. Sooner than be despoiled of them, they would prefer the ignominy of being pub-, licly whipped or branded, nay. even accept death itself, riven slaves who attend the seraglios are shaven, as a token of servitude. The Arab is known to preserve his beard with scrupulous • care, almost bordering on devotion; in all proba-’ biflty, out of respect for the Islam Prpphet, who wore this majestic mark of manhood.' The anointing of the beard with unguents is traceable to extremely remote times, and was .; constantly practised by the Jews and Romans.. The Turks still adhere to this custom. On cc-' casions of staid visits one of the ceremonies cb*.: served is to sprinkle scented water on the beard of the visitant, and then to perfmne it with aloes wood. . ' ' i Among the ancient Greeks . and Romans the beard was an object of great* veneration. Not only so, but it was considered to possess some occult charm, and regarded as a sacred pledge* of confidence and protection. According to the Grecian mythology, when Thetis . sought • to avenge the- wrongs -of her son; she embraced the . knees .of Jupiter and touched his beard in supplication. . Another illustration of this is presented in the plaintive story of Dolon and Diomed- The former thought, if he could but touch the warrior’s beard his life ’ : would not have been forfeited; ~ The-Greeks did v not commence to discard the beard until tin time of Alexander the Great, who ordered tbs • Macedonians to cut off the same simply as a . precautionary measure, lest when in battle such would afford the enemy an undue advantage. ’ .This practice was abandoned in Justinian’s reign, . when long beards -once more came into vogue. The philosophers, however, always distinguished themselves from the vulgar in this respect, by - suffering. their beards to grow, irrespective cf the imperial mandate to the contrary. ■ • i With the Normans the bearfl was bold in ab-: horrence, somewhat similar to the ancient Bri- 1 tons, who contented themselves with the culti vation of hair on the upper lip. The beard, however,' was allowed to grow by the Anglo-Sax ons.’ When William the Conqueror, • among other acts of oppression, compelled the English to cut Off their beards, the edict was regarded as 1 a wanton display of authority and tyrrany. Some preferred abandoning their country rather than conform to so intolerant a decree. In both in stances, such arbitrary laws were universally * disregarded. Sometimes they led to popular outbursts. It is said that, upon Harold dispatch ing scouts into th® camp of William L, they returned in ecstacy at the dieering prospect of a speedy victory. They reported that. # their enemies were not soldiers, but priests, having all ■haven faces. Singular to say, on the seal of William the Conqueror he appears with moustache and beard. - The fashion of wearing beards obtained in France till Louis XHL ascended the thronet : The premature death of his sire, Henry IV., causea a revolution in this custom, though the - Duke of Sully did not conform to the dress 6l\ the courtiers. Being once * ridiculed for his obstinacy, he said to the King* “Sire, when, your illustrious father did* me* the honor to consult me on bia.-. weighty affairs, the first act of his was to send off all the buffoons and stage dancers of his h court.” Beards were again worn in the reign of Louis SIY. Conde, Corneille, and Moliere, like the ancient Kings of France, took much pride in their beards. Buprat, the famous Bishop of Clermont, who built the Jesuits’ Church at Paris, ia reputed to have had the finest beard ever known—“ too fine a beard for • a Bishop,” ■ as the canons of hia cathedral thought. Hence; they came to the rude resolve to denude 'him of it, and actually made the attempt j oho day in the- church. The prelate, per ceiving the dean and others with the ‘instru ments of torture in the shape of scissors, razor, Ac., made the best haste ho could out of the edifice, and fled some leagues off to the castle of Beauregard. Here he pined, and at length , died, it is said, through sheer vexation. The Eastern and Western Churches have not only had controversies respecting points of doc-" trine and discipline; they have nad disputes concerning hoards. One Church enjoined that ecclesiastics should wear them.. Another Church positively prohibits this usage by express tuiions de radendis harbis, ] Even the Greeks were .• scandalized at the beardless, images of saintsm.; Roman "Catholic places of worship. The- Roman clergy once assumed the right of legis lating on the matter of beards. The hirsute or* nament of Henry L; for example, was condemn ed by some priests from the pulpit: and so per*- •latently that the King, to get rid or suchfulm nations, had their demand. Yet.uot:* ; withstanding this, in twenty years, we find the beard on the effigy of Henry EL In after time: the bsard was carefully cultivated, and worn with pride. How touching that incident at the,, execution of Sir Thomas More,, when be ore* his teeming beard aside from the fatal are, naively remarked to the executioner.
