A conference between the loaders of tho contending forces was hold yes terday. The Metropolitans wanted to know which of tho officers they woro about to instal woro objectionable, and what they wanted. Tho Bosisters replied that tho men woro satisfactory if commissioned by Goy. McEnory; that tho citi zens only wanted tho Metropolitans to loavo the town and not interfere with their local affairs. Tho women and children aro still in town. Kellogg's Judge, iu company with his District Attorney and Congressman Dartoll, have gouo to St. Martinsville to opon court to-day. The citizens’ force la variously estimated at from 200 to 400 men, with two pieces of artillery.

It is understood that a movement is on foot to solzo tho polico stations while tho Metropolitans aro in tho interior. Political complications aro increasing.

Tho object of tho mooting was to in dorse tho action of tho people of St. Martins. Another batch of fifty Metropolitans, it is stated, leave this evening to’ roiuforco St. Mar tinsvillo. Tho evening papers report that Kollogg offers $260 Stato warrants as bounty for Metropolitans to go to tho country. Tho commaudor of the Metropolitans at St. Martinsville appeals to Kollogg for mounted forco to assist thorn. Reinforcements for tho Metropolitans loft this morning for St. Martinsville. New Orleans, May o.—No Metropolitans aro on their boats to-night, those in tho city being concentrated about tho stations. It is under stood that thoso who refuse to take rifles aro al lowed to quit. Several of tho forco have de clared that they would not toko up arms against tho pooplo of tho Btato. Mudgo’s gun-store was broken into by a mob to-night, and almost its eutiro contents carried off. No policemen wore present to protect tho property. It is understood that an arrangement has Leon made between tho Federal officials and Kellogg by wbicb, under tho plea of enforcing civil processes against Col. Doßlauo and other load ing tax-resistors, tho United States troops go to morrow to tho roliof of tho Metropolitans at St. Martinsville. Do Clanc reports to Qov. McEnory that ho holds tho Metropolitans in check. No general engagement had occurred at last accounts. New Orleans, May G.—There is oxcitomon all over tho parish, and tho pooplo aro deter mined to resist. Forty Metropolitans arrived hero to-day, and they aro closely watched by tho citizens. It is said any overt act on their part will bo promptly resisted. Contrary to ordinary usago.tho citizens fraternize with tho Metropoli tans, hut aro fully determined. There aro no ne groes on tho streets. Tho town is seemingly quiet, but all are on tho alert. Franklin, La., 10:25 p. m, MayO.—'Tho Latest information from St. Martinsville indicates that a fight will probably tako place early to-morrow morning. About twonty-nvo well-mounted and well-armed men left hero sinco night-fall, for the “Roisters”' Headquarters, near St. Martins ville. Groat excitement prevails. Tho telegraph office hero is thronged with anxious men. . New Iberia, May G, 9:55 p.m.—The situation at Bt. Martinsville is unchanged. There was heavy firing on tho picket-lino this afternoon.

It is reported that Kellogg’s army- holds tho bridge crossing tbo Bayou Techo, preventing an attack from the roar. New Orleans, May C—ll p. m.—Sovoral gun stores were broken open by tbo mob to-mght and robbed of their contents. Tho excitement in this city is subsiding sinco it Is currently re ported that Gon. Emory has consented to send a company of Federal troops to protect tho Motro- Solltans, who seem to bo in danger. At t. Martinsvillo the Resistors seem to have them in oloso quarters. Nrw Orleans, May 6.—A number of citizens have signed tho following : To the Honorable Grand Jury of the Parish of Or leans : The respectful representation of tho under signed citizens and tax-payors of Now Orleans is herewith submitted, to-wit: That a grievous injury and wrong Is being done to tho petitioners by certain persons who are il legally arming tho police forco into an army, contrary to tho Constitution of tho United States, which, in Sec. 10, Article 1, expressly prohibits tho keeping of troops by any State, in language as follows: “No State shall, without the consent of Congress, lay any duty of tonn age, hoop troops or ships of war In times of peace.” Wo further represent that the action of the parties ogalust whom wo lay this bill of com plaint, to say more expressly, on William H. Kellogg, aided and abetted by other certain Police Commissioners, whoso names to us are now unknown, is calculated to put this State iuto a condition of rebellion against tho UnitodStates, and to damage and imperil the peace aud safety of your petitioners. Wo further respectfully represent that our taxes aro Immensely increased by Uiis soldiering of the police, who are sup posed to bo charged as police ofllcors to guard the city in its righto of person and property. Wo complain that wo are thus deprived of police, and have imposed upon us soldiers manufactured out of police ofllcors. Wo further respectfully represent that tho Met ropolitan police forco, as brigaded, embodies every element of a regular army, as a standing army, subject to tho absolute aud exclusive con trol and command of tho Governor, and that they may bo sent, and aro being uk this time sent, to other parts of tho Stale, armed with rifles and cannon, to ovorawo and shook down the people of the State. Wo further respectfully represents that tho dispatching of tho hostile expedition from tho city against our follow-oltizons in other parishes has a tendency to ftiyay ou opposite sides tho city aud tho oouu try. and begets on the part of the country a rancorous and bitter fooling against tbo city, all to our damage and tbo Injury of our remaining business and prosperity, and there fore wo respectfully request your honorable body to tako the whole case into caroful consid eration, and report upon tho samo to tbo honors oblo-Flrst District Court for snob action as tho Court may boo At to diroot, or your own mature judgment may judge to bo suitable In tbo prom ises, and your petitioners will over pray, etc. WAfIuiNOTON, May o.— Senator West and P. B. Plnobbaok, who havo just arrived from Now Or leans, bad a long conversation with tbo Attor ney-General on Louisiana affairs. No official intelligence has boon received from St. Martinsville. Notwithstanding tbo state ments of resistance to tho tax collections, those parlies report that the collections so far are largor than those of last year. CINCINNATI. Inmigurntlon of tlio Great Musical Festival—Tho Opening’ Concert a De cided Success—Programme for tho Week* Special Dispatch to The Chicago JVibtmc, Cincinnati, 0., May o.—Tbo great May festi val was inaugurated with an opening concert, ibis evening, at Exposition ’ Hall, under tbo direction of Theodore Thomas, and will continue daring tbo remainder of the week, with both afternoon and evening concerts, closing on Saturday with an open air concert and social picnic. Tbo programme for tbo evening was as follows: /Vraf—nandol’B "Detllngon To Doom,” with Mrs. Smith, Mlbb Cary, aud Meanra. Varloy «uu Whitney for tho quartette, ana solos with full chorus, organ, aud orchestra. Second— Doothovon’a Fifth Symphony. IVkfrtf— I Tho Mozart concert aria No. 3, by Ur. Varloy, Fourth— I "The noavona aro Telling," from tho " Creation.” Tho audionco, including poiformers, numbered nearly 0,000 pooplo. Tho tompornturo was at midsumihor boat, and In tbo balcony tho boat was so oppressive that many had to loavo. Promptly at half-past 7 Mr. Thomas took tho stand, and was welcomed with applause, - which ho acknowledged with a hasty how, and proceeded at onco to his work. Tho doors woro then closed by his own arrangement, and nono worAadmltted till tho oloso of the second num ber of tho To Deum. About ton minutes’ rest was thou taken, during which timo tho crowd booamo seated, aud tho performance of tho To Doum wont without interruption to its oloso. tho wholo work hoing given without cutting. Tho greatest success in tho To Doum was tho third number, "To tho Cherubim and Seraphim,” which was taken in oxaot timo ana with wonder ful precision. In most of tho other numbers Mr. Thomas’ tempos woro very rapid, so much so that in tho closing quortotto Miss Cary was somewhat disconcerted, and evon Whitnoy was moro than onoo behind tho boat, while tho organist was put to his wits’ ends in some of tho highly-figured numbers. Tho chorus, however, made its attacks superbly, especially in tho figured numbers, and developed remarkable purity of vole© and unanimity of singing, tho whole soprano aldo carrying Itself along rather than waiting to bo lod by a fow voices as is usually tbo oaso of choruses of tholr' size. Tho altos in concerted plocos woro tho weakest, but in tholr solos developed superb metal and steady work. Aftgy tho To Doom, a half hour was devoted to promonado and refreshments in tho largo ana ologantly-doooratod side halls, after which, at tbo sound of tho boll, tho audionco was re seated, and Boothovon’s Fifth Symphony was {;ivon m superb stylo, tho andante being special y good. Tho audionco mado a desperate effort to got an oncoro, but Thomas was 1 inflexi ble. and would not yield. Mr. Varloy mado a very decided hit with his Mozart solo, aud the concert closed with tho Haydn chorus, about half-past 10, and in tho midst of a drench ing rain. Tho concert is pronounced on all sides to bo a groat success, and a very auspicious open ing of tho festival, although there Is a furi ous discussion going on among tho Gormans as to Thomas* tempos. Owing to Mr. Thomas* well-known aversion to show or nolso of any kind, thoro is no apparent local oxcitomont hero. Tbo popular enthusiasm has not been wdrkcd up with parados, proces sions, blowing of trumpets, flaming announce ments, bolls, anvils, or artillery. A fow flags aro flying, but boyond this and tho somewhat crowded condition of the hotels, thoro aro no signs of a festival. Tho festival will stand or fall purely on its musical merits. It Is Intended os tho pionoor of annual festivals in tho future in tho great West ern cities, and, although there is muon classical music in tho programme for what is Intended to ho a popular festival, and a largo proportion of it now, some of tho numbers never having boon given boforo in this country, still Mr. Thomas has acted upon t,ho correct theory, that pooplo can onjoy, and evon understand, classical musio if it is performed as it should bo, and that tho only reason why classical music has not boon popularized is because it has been so mercilessly murdered hitherto. Tho programmes for tho week aro tho best that liavo over boon offered in tho West, if not in this country. They include tho actual masterpieces of Boolhovon, Mendels sohn, Mozart, Handel, Gluck. Schumann, Schu bert, Haydn, .Liszt, and Wagnor. Tho princi pal numbers for tho week aro tho Dot tiugon To Doum and Doothoveu’s. Fifth Symphony, on this evening’s programme; several scones from Gluck’s "Orpheustho Coriolanus Overture, and Schumann’s, Symphony in O for Wednesday evening 5 tho "Osis and Osiris ” from tho " Magic Fluto Schumann a “Gipsy Life,’ 1 and tho Ninth Symphony of Boolhovon, with tho second part chorus, Mrs. Smith, Miss Cary, Mr, Varloy, and Mr. Rudolph, Senior, in tho quartette for Thursday evening; tho Vorspiol to Wagner’s i.‘ Moistorsrongor ”j Sohu hort’a Twenty-third Psalm j Liszt’s "Tasso, and Mendolsachu’a “ Walpurgls Night ” for Fri day evening. , In addition to those numbers, tho matlnoo programmes present a very attractive selection of oratorio solos ’ and choruses, and movements from symphonies, interspersed with operatic arias, marches, and danco musio.

Aftor speaking of the causes which led to the revolt of the Modocs, as often previously published, tho Commissioners, alluding to tho assassination of Gen. Oanby and Peace Commissioner Thomas, eay: “A treachery so base admits of no palliation, nor can any punishments motoa out to tho perpetrators of tho crime bo too severe.” Tho-Modoc war (it is held), however, cannot bo charged against tho Presi dent’s ponce policy : and it is also affirmed that “ tho misdeeds of individual Indians or bands should not bo charged against tho innocence or upon tho race. Tho rod man has no friends to toll his side of tho story, and no degree of ex aggeration or falsehood is too gross to bo ‘ un hesitatingly accepted by tho public mind against him.” Tho report says: “It has never boon the expectation of the friends of tbolndiau policy that it would, in tho short period of a few years, civilize tho savago tribes, nor could it bo expected to briug the rod man in three years to become as free from crime as tho whites. It is the opponents of tho policy who expect the Indian to bo more free from criminality than tho people of our most civilized communities. Pout years of trial have proved tho peace policy to be a success, and, with tho exception of tho contest with a few bands of Apaches and the present unhappy struggle with a handful of Modoo bravos, tho country has boon saved from Indian wars. Christian denominations are invited to co-operate, and then the most inveterate ludian hatora will hardly venture to complain of tho policy or Us results.” Mt Washington, May G.—A commission will shortly ho sent to negotiate with tho Sioux and other Indians on a reservation In Southwestern Dakota, for a modification of the treaty of 1863, so aa to withdraw*from tho Indians thoprivuogo of hunting outside their reservations.
