“ CAI’T. SAM.” jjnio Interesting Incidents of His Sailor-Lifo. [to Bltol lovcrF, anil How Hie tarty Dc- elded Between Them. passenger in a Wonderful Dlogulso —•Clarence Who Proved to Bo Clara. UVf/frr»/'»r The Tribune. Oqtcago, May, ISTO.—Ten years of my early fiilor-llfe were passed in the famous Black-Ball line of New York and Liverpool packets. This line was composed of light ships, the finest ipcdmcns of naval architecture the world ever yn-; and cadi ship made three Voyages a year, .-carrying out cotton and naval stores, princi pally, and returning with heavy freights of cost ly merchandise,—dry goods, cloths, hardware, lilt, etc. Besides this lucrative lading, they av eraged, each trip to the westward, about thirty jrat-class passengers, and 500 or COO steerage imlgranls, mostly natives of the Emerald Isle, whose charms ami sorrows Anacreon Moore has M sweetly and touchingly described in melo dious song. A ship crowded with such a motley group KM o little world in Itself, and It may readily be imagined that scarcely n passage was made with out the occurrence of some Incidents, tragical or comical, which could not fall to Interest and unusc the render. Thrown thus together for ft hug, and, In must Instances, a stormy, passage tcruas the wild Atlantic, the otllecrs »nd passengers wore prompt to use every en deavor to make the time pass pleasantly away. Some of the commanders of the line, In than intl-stcam days, were men of refined tastes ana polished manners, ns well fta some wits and scholars; ami Dickens, In his obnoxious but truthful Notes, has related nn occurence that transpired on board the “liner” In which he jret came to this country, and which I knoio to jc a fact. TUB RIVAL LOVERS. A young lady, accomplished, beautiful, and rldi, was among the passengers; and three very ityltah gentlemen paid assiduous attention to her from the commencement of the passage. She Wits quite partial to them all, amt yet she geemed to he bored with their Incessant and very marked attentions. Tills fact she acknowl edged one day to old Capt. G., and asked his advice as to her choice,—assuring him that she would receive favorably the one he thought prized her the most highly. Cut how to decide? Capt. G. told her -that, as she had often boasted of being ait expert swimmer, he could assist her In reach ing a conclusion; and It was finally agreed be tween themselves, that, on the first calm day, the Italy should carelessly fall overboard, ami the unitor who first sprang to her rescue should le the accepted one. Meantime, to avoid any rl„k, Capt. (k, unknown to all others, had a Ito Hi’s crew rcatly to act at a moment’a notice In the emetgoney. •• A LADY OVERUOARD.” Accordingly, one fine calm day, while the ihlp lay sleeping, at Is were, upon tho tranquil waters, all on board were startled by a splash, a female tdirlck, and a cry of horror at the news, “ Miss St. Clair overboard 1 ” Thu three suitors were playing “ shovelbonrd” on tho quarter tied;, ami two of them boldly plunged alter the unfortunate Judy; but the Wt’s crew bad rescued her before they hail shaken the water out of their eyes on rUng to the surface. All were soon taken on hoard; and, as they stood dripping mi tins quarter-deck, tho lady turned Imploringly to Capt. (L, and said, “And what shall I do now I They are both «o well” “Taku the dry one, ” curtly responded the skipper. And the did, for they wore married the day after Hie ship’s arrival In New York. In looking over my daily-kept Journals of that pleasantest speck of my sailor-lire, I find many memoranda of incidents whlck 1 think not uu- Interesting, and I extract one for the amuse ment o. Tim Tuhiunr’s readers: A STRANGS PASSENGER. In the summer of 1&J0, while the packet-shin Caladoiiiu was lying in I’rlneo’s dock, Liverpool, a young gentleman came on hoard one after noon to examine the cabins and select a state room for himself. I wna remarkably struck br ills sweet and ( lassie features, and the perfect symmetry of bis manly form, though not above the medium height. A more melodious Voice I never heard, while the pearly teeth, and the nnall anil perfect hands and feet, led me to be lieve wliut Byron has asserted, that they arc un failing indices of high birth and noblo blood. He staled, during our prolonged conversa tion, tbut be had an older brother, who was a Captain hi the British army, and at this time stationed in Canada; that he was about to Im prove some leisure time by paying this brother a visit, and seeing something of our famed Yiuikeehmd. He teemed particularly hiqulsl i -e an to the number of passengers we were to and expressed great delight on learning that he could liave u state-room to himself ad joining mine; which having examined, he pinned his card to the curtains, ami left for the consignees, to procure his ticket ami settle his fare. The card bore the name of Clarence Beauelerc; and, the day after, his luggage was sent down, with a note to mu requesting that 1 would order it safely and conveniently be stowed. , . . We sailed a day or two after, and, although we had a jolly lot of passengers, I saw nothing of Mr. iloauelcre, after he came on hoard, until we were In tho “chops” of tho Channel, when one evening he came up to my side, and hundred about the loss of the 111-fated packet-ship Albion, which v. as wrecked years before,near Cape Clear. 1 asked him U he hud been sea-sick, as I bad nut seen him before, and he replied in tho uegutlve; Informing me that his father owned a yacht, ami that he had been on several long cruises with him, until he had become quite a sailor. Beamlerc, although a young man who had evidently moved In aristocratic society, ami seemed to mu the hcau-Idcul of an English uohlcmun. did not become a general favorite with his follow-passengers, as ho was most re served In hla deportment, never once mingling in tho sports or joining tho wlne-hlbhers on Thursdays and Sundays, which hi those times were “ehampauo days,”—the wine being fur nished by tho ship free on those occasions. I was the only ono with whom ho seemed at all at case, and, before we were “half-seas over,” we had become almost familiars. TUB CHALLENGE AND REDOPP. I conld not account for It, but my heart cer tainly warmed towards the reserved young man In a most mysterious and inexplicable manner. He spent hours on deck with me, lu the night watches, while the rest of the passengers were carousing or playing cards; always listening with defight to the “yarns” ho begged mo to “ reel oil ” for Ids amusement. 1 never saw Idm melted or disturbed but unco during the pas oage, and that was by a remark of a boisterous, wild chap named Stafford, who said to him one day, rather roughly, “ I say, Bcauclorc, put ou the gloves with mo for a sparring-match. You have & famous head and shoulders for n boxer, though 1 think 1 am a match for you in pluck and wludl” The sweet eyes drooped, and a sudden palor overspread the exquisite face ns Beuuclerc replied, In a voice tremulous with emotion, “ 1 am an entire novice in nil such sports; and a family predisposition to affections of tho heart and sudden death h&s mode mo cautious about getting excited in anv manner whatever I” The tone and manner of the reply were anything but fierce, although I believe a Recullar expression accompanying them was nought to indicate u dangerous customer if aroused; for the blustering Stafford never at tempted any familiarity with Bcauclcrc there after. FAMII.T MATTERS, Many a time during our evening talks to gether, Ueauclerc would give me glowing de scriptions of the happy home ho hud left down lu Devonshire; always speaking tearfully of fund parents, devoted sisters, and loving broth ers, and promising to semi hack letters by mu which would insure me un Invitation to visit them, and which I must not fall to accept. A IIAI'I'Y MEETING. We bad ashort and pleasant passage to Sandy Hook, and, amid the bustle of arrival and the pressing duties of my station, I hod barely time to notice on board tbo steam-tug which bail been dispatched to tow us up to the city, aa soon tu Ac were telegraphed oft tho Highlands, a tall uid handsome, military-looking man,who hailed :h»! arrival of Clarence with Irrepressible de ight,—holding him In a long, fraternal rmbrace, ana whom 1 took to bo the brothcr-Captain whose regiment was In Canada. Tho day after our arrival at the wharf, tho baggage of the passengers was o ut ashore, and X received a note from Beau olerc requesting me to send his trunks to tho City Hold,—then tho headquarters of all that v wiu> fashionable and aristocratic lu Gotham. TIIH DENOUEMENT. I complied with tho request, and had almost f forgotten my late passenger, when, ono day, I ivivid a polite and pressing Invitation to dlno with C.'pt. Ueauclerc and his brother, prior to t... !.■ .I.lnu-..': !. r «U I n.W.inJj nuilo my appearance at tlm hold at 0 p. m., and wan ushered Into ft splendid suite of room?, where 1 found the military brother and nn exrjulsltelv lovely tally, to whom 1 wan Introduced as his Wife, Waiting til Welcome 111''. We sal some time ronverslng about my late short passage, and they in,u, nssmed me 11ml. “ Clary ” 1i;nl lavished all sorts of praises on me for my many klmiV.'vwn; when n servant entered the room, and took ft coat nnd panta loons from the sofa, where they had been care lessly thrown, nnd which I readily recognized an the familiar habiliments of my Into passen ger, wlnine entree I now momentarily expected. Mrs. B. followed the servant from the room, ua I nnpponed to usher In her brother-in-law, hut ho noon entered alone. dressed In his old, well known apparel of shipboard, ami, giving men hearty welcome, he ashed mu “ how I liked the looks of A to brother'* thvomhlre wife t A roguish twinkle In those magnificent eyes (lashed the truth upon my mind in an Instant, nnd, amid the most uproarious laughter, I shook my Anger in the beautiful face whose mesmeric Influence I hud so often felt hi the pleasant, evenings at sen. nnd saluted with becoming warmth the rosy lips of the newly-made bride, Airs. Clara Bcauclerc. EXPLANATION. The mystery wan soon unraveled. Capt Beau clcre linn long been nn accepted suitor of Clara Graham, the eldest daughter of Sir Hugh (1., one of the wealthiest Baronets in Devonshire; but the Inflexibility of the father, who was averse to the mulch, had Induced the younir Indy to break down 11 conventional proprieties, 1 ’ ami. under a disguise which had proved wonderfully Im penetrable to the eyes of ft whole ship’s com pany nt im, she Joined her expectant lover ot New York, where, nt the house of the British Consul, wlm had been tnlimale with them all at home, the happy wedding was duly solemnized. Donning once mure her graceful bridal ap parel, and attaching the flowing though false curls to her beautiful head, Mrs. B wan the per fection of a happy bride; while the gallant Captain, encircling her with his arms, assured me that the natural ringlets which would soon adorn the head of his ‘‘ladle fairc” would fur surpass the utmost reach of art. 1 hud the curiosity to examine closely the cast-off coat of the late Clarence Bcauclerc, and I solemnly aver that the padding therein dis played forbade me lightly to estimate that “reach of art ” that could transform a most perfect womanly form Into the symmetry aud mold of ap Apppllo Bulvidcre. On returning to the parlor, after a delicious dinner, an elegant Dolland telescope and a gold lever of Tobins’ best manufacture were present ed to mo by Capt. B. as mernentoesofthe lasting friendship of himself aud his lovely bride. Both articles were Inscribed with my name, and, with in a tasty wreath, each bore these memorable words: “ TUB END HAS SANCTIFIED TUB MEANS.—C. E.” One year thereafter Capt. 11, lady, child, and servant took passage with me lor a visit to the now'-reconciled parents; ami I accompanied them to their Devonshire homo, spending a fort night In the joyfully-milted circle, nearlybrcak- Ing my neck at*the first nnd Inst steeple-chase I witnessed, and losing myheart for the I-don’t ktiow-what-liuudredth time to Clara’s beautiful sister Estelle. Arctic. THEN ATTD NOW. I’rohlonta Grant and Washington nt Home. 6'ci/e Hamilton in the Galaxy far June. What was the old republican sympliclty when you get to It? I suppose tills socially corrupt Washington, which so needs reformation, may safely stand by tho example of the man who gave It Ills name. With what republican sim plicity did he dress and live? From private memoirs by his adopted sou and granddaughter we learn that a single servant combed and tied his hair In the prevailing fashion, which was to let It grow long, powder It with a puff ball made of cotton yarn—which, with the powder, was carried Inauresscd buckskin pouch—and tie It up In a long bunch with a ribnon behind. I believe that (mu. Grant gets his hair combed with more republican simplicity. Washington’s every day dress when riding about the farm was plain drub, but when President his style and equipage “corresponded with the dignity of hU exulted station." His ordinary dinner dress was a suit of block, his hair powdered and lied In a black queue, and a very elegant dress sword. Who ever saw President Grant carving his roast beef with an elegant dress sword? When he ad dressed the flail of Congress in Philadelphia he was dressed in a full suit of the rinhest block velvet, with diamond knee-buckles, mid square silver buckles set upou shoes Japanned with tho most scrupulous neatness, black silk stockings, bis shirt rutiled at the breast and wrists, u light dress-sword, his hair profusely powdered, fully dressed so as to project nt the sides, and gathered behind In a silk bag ornamented with a Jarge rose of black riband. His cocked hat bad n large cockade on one side of It. When President Grant delivered bis last Inaugural, bare-beaded, In the bitter cold and savage wind, ho was not only denuded of diamonds, velvet, rallies, and buckles, but he bad not no much as a silk ling about his frozen ears! Washington’s carriage was of a light cream color, painted on the panels with beauti ful groups by Uiprlaim representing thofour seasons. He was preceded by two gentlemen wllh long white wands, who kept back the crowd, ills stables at Mount Vernon were furnished wllh thoroughbred horses. When he appeared on horseback it was always wllh line equipments, accompanied by bis servant. For Mrs. Washington ho kept a chariot and four horses, wllh mack postillions hi Hvery. 'Flic following order, sent to his London agent, for out-of-door equipage, savors of a republican simplicity which would cause u staru In these later days: Man's riding-saddle, largo plated stirrups, and everything complete. A very neat amt fashionable (I) Newmarket sad dle-cloth. , A Surge and best (I) portmanteau, saddle, bridle, and pillion. Cloak-bag, snrclnglo; checked saddle-cloth. A riding-frock of a handsome (!) drsh-colorcd broadcloth, with plain double-gill (!) buttons. A riding waistcoat of superfine scarlet cloth and gold Saco, with buttons like those of tho coal I A blue surtout-coat. A neat (!) switch-whip, silver cap. Bliu’k velvet cap fur servant. He was very fond of horses, and his equipages were always of a superior order. He kept a register of both horses and hounds, and in hunting was always superbly mounted, and wore u blue coat, scarlet waistcoat, buckskin breeches, tup bouts, and velvet cap. His pack of bounds was very numerous and select, and bo used to hunt three times o week. When ho broke up his kennel be formed a deer-park of iOO acres. For breakfast the custom of hla time and society was tea and coffee, roast fowl, hum, venison, gome, mid other dainties. Never was there more generous hospi tality than Ids. House and apart ments and servants were at tho dis posal of the guest. At dinner the centre of the table contained five or six large sliver or plated waiters, those at the end oval on one side to correspond with the shape of the table. Tho waiters were filled with mythological alabaster figures. On the outside of tho oval formed by the waiters were the dishes. He had u silver mug of beer by his plate, ami he drunk several glasses of Madeira wine. His wines were al ways tho best that could bo obtained, and nothing could exceed the order with which hU table was served. Every servant knew what he was to do, and did It In the most quiet and rapid manner. The dishes and plates were removed and changed with a silence and speed that seemed like enchantment. Iteinurkable Thievery. 4 \>ic Part Bun. Ono of the ntnuigcat stories lhatc*v(tf beguil ed u winter’* night was that of the disappear ance of o stone house in London while Its own* era wore journeying in the Holy Land. This could scarcely happen In these days of telegraph and steam. Neighbors who saw the great gate taken away, tho furniture removed, and every brick and stone corriud olt In broad daylight, never Imagined tho workmen were robbers, and so did not interfere. But, that strange tilings happen in New York ns well as London, was demonstrated beyond a doubt tills spring. On that part of Fifth avenue which faces Central Park, an expensive brown stone-front house in u nearly unoccupied block, was rented by u showy man calling himself Cupt. ——. It was furnished thoroughly and elegantly by aomo down-town upholsterers, pictures, bronzes, ete., were added, groat bumpers of wines ami provisions were brought, an Ice man. a butcher, baker, and grocer were engaged, and tho whole establishment ready forlts occupants. An old gentleman, a neighbor, with nothing else to do, amused himself by looking at tho contents of the house, and one day penetrated tho kitchen, where he found plumbers taking out the range. who said “ tho Captain didn’t like it, ami buu ordered a different patent. 1 11 The family failed to come fur a fortnight, tho ice* man, the butcher, baker, and grocer came for orders, but found no customers. Finally tho neighborly old gentleman told a policeman he thought there was something wrong about that house, and so there was,—for, on opening It, it was found entirely empty. Not only tho fur niture was gone, but the mantels, grates, range, furnace, everything portable, was missing. And where Is the gallant CapL —I Gone to keep a stylish boarding-house at the Centennial. A Lust Treasure Found. Two years ago H. W. Edmunds, Baying Teller of the Second National Bunk of Boston, was discharged because he could not account for tho disappearance of 910,000. To-day tho money was found in a crevice of the safe, Into which It bad slipped at tho Umo of Its disappearance. THIS CHICAGO TRIBUNE: MONDAY. MAY 2!), 1870. lII.ANCKE TUCKER. ter Debut on the Operatic Stage a London. low She Was llccolvcrt by the Audience and Treated by Iho Critics. A Success that Was Merited by Pino Natural Talent aud Indomitable Work. Kptdal VomsponAtnot of The Tribune. London, April, llsTO.—Chicago is to he con gratulated, for the proud Queen of the West has sent to the Old World a pearl of a prlma donna, wbrtliy to lake her place In the bright galaxy of the illustrious singers of the day. The swift flash of the electric wires, throbbing beneath the heaving billows ot the ocean, will have told you long ago that the dehut of the new American primndoimn, Mile. Blanche Uosu- Vella, at C'uvent Garden, was a success; that she was welcomed by a large and enthusiastic house, greeted with encores and recalls, showered with bouquets, nnd, In short, received the ovation with which the public Is accustomed to reward Us favorites; nnd, of still more Importance, that the all-powerful press have recognized her debut as an event in the musical world; that the Tima bus been more than flattering, and that even the fastidious J'all Jfall has condescended to admire. Golden words of praise fall fitly upon this fair young head. For indeed Blanche Tucker,—or Blanche Rosavcllo, as she must now be called,—by all sweet signs and omens, must bo recognized as ONE OF FORTUNE’S DARLINGS,— the veritable Princess of the fairy talc, from whoso Ups drop pearls and diamonds, and at whose touch all evil things are transformed to beauty. Just before Miss Tucker sailed for Europe, more than two years ago, I had the pleasure of meeting her In New York, nnd admired—as who could fall to dol—her pure, girlish'beauty, nnd high ambition,—the dreamy hope and resolu tion looking forth from her sweet blue eyes. Tile ship on which she soiled (for her the launch ing of her ship of life) carried a distinguished company, among whom was a party of young girls starting on a European tour; it was adorned with flowers In rich profusion; so that she departed like a young priestess, encompassed by her votaries, and crowned with the gifts of Flora. Is there truth In presage and omen! If so, did this predict a fortunate career for this young girl I A week ago, on the very eve of her debut, I had the pleasure of meeting her again In London, attd round her the some Blanche Tucker, light hearted, straightforward, lovely, and Innocent os ever, but with her beauty heightened and character developed by experience, and con tent with tho world; found nor on the very eve of reaping the reward for which she had toiled with patience and ardor. The promise of our first meeting was thus fulfilled. In the far, free West you will find it difficult to Imagine WHAT A TRIUMPH IT WAS merely to obtain tho opening awarded to this young girl. There are many who have sijoau ilercd money In vain to secure a less advantage. But our Chicago damsel comes, beholds, and conquers; unheralded, unannounced, she ap pears without money or apparent in llucnee, mid yet the way is open to her,'and her path is strewn with flowers. Ami. the opportunity secured, how rush the venture I “ La Travlata ’’ Is one of the most trying of operas; the part of Violetta requires to he not only well sung, but well acted; the public have been accustomed to see it superbly noted: they have Identified it with beloved names,—those of Nilsson and Patti,—and literally know the mu sic hv heart. What chance had this young, In experienced girl in challenging comparison with these Queens of Song? It was tins opinion of many—and those good judges—U»at herllrst ap pearance would Inevitably prove a failure, even although she possessed great talent. In at tempting too much, the aspiring novice, they Imagined, would defeat, her own aim. And yet Alisa Tucker’s debut was not a failure, hut A DHILUAKT SUCCBSS,—- proof sufficient that she Is a favorite of For* tunc, under the guidance of u propitious star. This success did not come by eluuiee, nor was It due alone to our American girl's sweet voice and lovely face, but was fairly woo by her rare tact and practical wisdom; an intuitive knowl edge of the world and instinct of generalship, width, In so voung a woman, is quite remark* able. Her dedicate form and sweclly-femlnlnu face ore animated by a very determined spirit. Once resolved, she never relinquishes her pur pose, but advances patiently and steadfastly to her goal, bringing all resources to bear until It is accomplished. She selects her friends Ju diciously, and recognises at a glanco what will prove beneficial and what detrimental to her Interests. Here Is un instance of the sort of Intuition hy which she has been guided In pur suing her similes: About a year ago alio came from Paris to Loudon to write up the debut of Kinma Ablnjlt for the New York Herald , and was then for the first time presented to Mr. Oyo, manager of Uovcnt Worden. Mr. G. heard her sing, and signed a contract giving her uu engagement fur a term of years, and the promise of an open ing this spring. The Impressarlo, however, desired the singer to study with a master of Ids selection; and Miss Tucker, finding that Ids method Injured her voice, refused to do so. This caused a sort of misunderstanding Imtwccn them, and Mr. Uye seemed inclined to let the new aspirant drop. Miss Tucker’s most im portant Interests were threatened, but still SUB WOULD NOT TIELI). And her faith In her Intuitions was rewarded. At Milan she was Introduced to Trevolsl,— cousin of the famous Erie!,—now an old man, paralytic and eccentric, but with u bouignly beautiful countenance, and. a grand musical method, which, when ho will consent to lake a pupil us a rare privilege, no living teacher can so well impart. Miss Tucker hail found tier muster. For six months she sat at Trevulsl’s feet, drinking In knowledge of the divine laws of liarmony. At her departure, Trevolsl, It Is said, was heart-broken. “My sun is setting,” be sold: the old man hod become devotedly at tached to ids young and favorite pupil. i have been telling you about Miss Tucker rather than her sweet singing, well knowing that you would hear of the latter from many quarters, and that her friends In Chicago would bo specially interested lu all that concerns her self. Hut now LET MB OUV*I> MVBET.P. Because I speak of this charming woman uud prliua-donuu with enthusiasm, you are uot to suppose that 1 am pronouncing her at present a thoroughly-accomplished singer, or assuming that her first u)>- peuraneo was a great arlitUe success. Youth and beauty disarm criticism; flowers are cast at the feet of a lovely girl bv her personal friends; the public, easily moved, responds eagerly to every Indication of talent in one whose very ap pearance wins sympathy. Miss Tucker's first appearance was so good that It gained for her the privilege of ascending the steep hut sun-crowned heights of artistic perfection; and the Integrity and Jenergv of her character arc a guarantee to her friends that she will pursue er advantage to the utmost. That sue will ever become what is termed a great artist. It would not perhaps Ixs safe to predict. Hut there Is in her charming talent, m her beauty, her voice, her whole being, an exquisite har mony width is in itself power. With her soft loveliness and grace, she seems, like one of Wagner's heroines, to move to the accompani ment of spirit-strains, unheard by ttic grosser sense. In execution sbe has ettll much to gain; but her method is good, and her voice, though uot strung, has a pure, iwnetruting quality, wonderfully pleasing: it carries well, mid fills {lie large theatre without difficulty. Best of all, she lias the tmo Instinct of the actress, A CUAUUINO DUAMATIO TALBNT. The beet proof that she has given of power is tho Immense Improvement In her second per formance, on last Tuesday evening. On the opening night, her voice seemed somewhat weak; her manner, though graceful, was con strained; and, In several scenes, tho inexperience of the actress was at once palpable. On Tues day ovcnlug, she was another creature; her voice asserted Itself in all the charms of Its young freshness and purity; she sang much better, and her acting was charming; bud she beeu upou the stage for years, situ could not have been more natural and unembarrassed; and, In several scenes, she gave Indications of real genius. Her greatest danger now will come from the praise and Uuttcry of her numerous and sometimes Injudicious friends and ad mirers. If, allowing herself to be persuaded that she Is already perfect, she relaxes her arduous efforts, contenting herself with the facile triumphs which may be won by mere beauty, us au artist she will Ikj lost. But she bos already conquered so many diitlcultlcs lu her brief career that we may well trust her to resist these slren-volics, and clabor so earnestly that she will in time he, in fact, tho peer of the great singers by whose side she now stands. That she has great power to move an audience she bas olrcoilv uruved. Her enthusl- us tie recalls on Tuesday evening were spon taneous and unmistakable. No chiqumr*, whether professional or merely friendly, wen* In ie required. The applause she received was (hr tribute of the whole Irmse, time rewarding her well-deserved success. With so many rare gifts,—leauly, grace, ge nius, and crowned with the aureole of youth,— It is not strange that Miss Tucker should have A HOST OP PIUBKIIA. On the night of her debut several parties c ame from Milan and Paris to witness the perform ftuee; and, when It wa* over, the drawing-room of her pleasant home was thronged with artists, mid authors, imd Journalists, eager to olfer her Ihclr eongiat illations. Probably no deputations were sent from America on this occaalon, but I am certain that many of her friends In Chicago thought of her c,u this evening, remembered how momentous It would prove In her career, and sent her their good wishes across the broad Atlantic. America haa more and more reason to be proud of tier artists. Ills certainly true tlint talent imd genius arc being marvelously devel oped In our country In this direction. Among the parlv wfio came from Paris to Miss Tucker’s ‘debut was Mr. Case, from Cleveland, who has been, now for four years, a pupil of the Conservatoire In Purls. Tills is In Itself an honor, since no pupils are admitted to the Comcrvalolro without passing a severe examination and evincing latent of u high order; money will not purchase this privilege. Mr. Case balks like a Spaniard, and Is evidently a horn artist ami genius. One fe eds quite safe in predicting for him a great career. The beau tiful Mrs. Knox, another of Mrs. Tucker’s guests, is soon to make her debut at Co vent Garden, In “La Favorltu.” Mrs. Knox, who U ttlno an Amerluai girl, will appear under the name of Florence Illcca.—her maiden name, Florence Nice, Italianized. Hhc has been study, lug In Paris with great devotion for over two years. Shu Is remarkably beautiful, has a superb contralto voice, mid, It fa anticipated, Will make a great success. V. V. “ THE PEODIGAL SON.” The Burning of Dubufo's Painting. Cincinnati Commercial, J/iiy 27. The destruction by fire of so great a work of art as that of the painting of “The Prodigal Son ” cannot be regarded as othcrthaii a public calamity. Public buildings and ImlH niu be re built, but n work on which the genius of o great master, educated In one of the best schools of modern art, was expended, and which Ims been regarded as his masterpiece, what hand or what skill can reproduce 1 This painting was com pleted by Edouard Dubufe, a pupil of Ids cele brated father, and of the famous Paul Dclaroche, In the year 1807. The artist was then about 4“ years of age, and in the ripeness of his Intel lectual ana artistic faculties. It was re clvcd by the world of Paris with even* domonstratlon or delight. The Imperial Government be stowed upon the artist the hlghcbt honors within Its gift. There was but one voice, and Hint was the voice of praise, either from con temporary artists or the public. M. Dubufe painted u second picture from the large canvas, reproducing It with fidelity of form and color, but on a small scale, for the purpose of engraving: and the engravings that nave made the world familiar wit ’ itibufe's treatment of the parable wore repn... .tons In line of this atnallsketch,which afterwards passed Into the possession of the late Mr. A. T. Stewart, and Is now In the gallery of his house on Fifth avenue. It Is all that remains In color to tell of this magnificent painting. Mr. JI. W, Derby, an old Cincinnatian, the predecessor of Robert Clarke *fc Co., In the book-publishing business Imre, and nt one time proprietor of the Dally JCiv/nirer, was. nt the time the “Prodigal Sou” was on exhibition In Paris, engaged in purchasing and importing pictures from Europe, lie was attracted to this painting, mid negnti*'od for It, bringing It to America In 18CU, tlm. ’* It was not opened or shown till n year later. The price be paid for It Is differently stated, but some Idea ol its value may be formed from the fact that fur u long 'lime the Insurance rates upon It were $50,000, though nt the time of its destruction the amount was no more than half Unit sum. Desirous of showing It to bis old friends In Cincinnati, he brought It to tills city In the fall of 1873. It was here put into frame for the | first time, and exhibited at Hopkins Hall, u I place much too small for its advantageous ex hibition, but the best that could be had nt that •time. Mr. Derby was persuaded to Lake It to Indianapolis, In old ol the Exposition which , opened there fur the first time that year. Over yu (XX) people visited the hnll in which it was ex hibited, and It was because of this popularity that Mr. Derby determined to make mi exposi tion plctuta of It. It was suhscrjuenly shown nt tit. Louis, Chicago, Buffalo, Baltimore, Phila delphia, New York, and Boston, and other Im portant cities, In each of which it was visited by large numbers of people. Its exhibition in Chicago during two seasons of three weeks In oil nutted $22,- 000 In receipts. Over 10,000 people went to view ft. Its popularity lu Boston was hardly less unbounded. During the four years past It has been on exhibition about fifteen mouths In oIL, and notlediupward of $75,000. These re ceipts are unprecedented in the exhibition of apy slnglu painting. ft was Mr. Derby’s intention, after the dose of Its exhibition here, to take it to Saratoga, and there show It for the last time lu a public manner. Having IndcmnUled himself for the money Invested In It, he proposed to give It U» ati Art'Hall, with which fils own name would be identified, mid make It the nucleus of a collec tion of good paintings. But the puriHJse, like the picture, has vanished in thin air, and the world Is the loser, for wc cannot suppose that M. Dubufe will undertake to reproduce, and no other liand would venture so dilllcalt a task. Twenty-live years ago the tainting* of the “Temptation “ and the “Expulsion, I *—the first representing Adam and Eve lu Paradise, Eve in the uet of presenting the apple to Adam, and in the last the sinful pair being driven from the Garden amid the tumult of the angry element, —were exhibited In this country by mi English man named Ring. They were remarkable works of art, and came from the studio of the elder Dubufe. The strong contrast between the two pictures, the peace and serenity and loveliness of the one, and the terror and tragic sublimity of the other, made an abiding Impres sion on the Imagination and memory. No one who ever saw them can for get the figure of Eve lu the “Expul sion,** kneeling before Adam for protection and forgiveness, the wind roaring through tlie trees around them, the lightning blazing behind them, the angry animaln glaring at them, and the bit of lund sky In the low horizon that so strongly contrasted with the blackness of the stormy heavens, the lialf-knceling and crouch ing Ilgure, with the fair hair streaming over the shoulders, and soino tresses fulling over the arm, was marvelously painted, ami was stul uesuuo In strength and relief. This was effected by the blaze of Intense light falling upon it, and outlie other hand by the red glare which pro ceeded from the serpent, now transformed into a mucking demon. But great as these paintings were, they touched upon the melodramatic, and were want ing in the essentials of severe art, which were to lie found In llje composition of the Prodigal Son, with Us forty figures, each expressive of character, and'all uniting to tell the story of the Prodigal’s life. But they all had the same end; they were destroyed by fire—the Temptation anulho Expulsion, wo believe, though not cer tain, while on exhibition in London. Less for tunate than the Pnaligal Bon. no engravings or sketches exist, so far us we know, of the elder Bubufu’s great paintings. Their loss was wide ly deplored, us will bo that of the younger Dubuie, which last night went to destruction with Molodeon Hall. The memory of the great p&lnting will, however, live In the memories of all those who were so fortunate us to see It, and who will regret the pleasure which others would have enjoyed hod it been spared the Homes. A Telegraph-Operator lu Trouble. Thu accurate telegraph-operator hath his bulls no less renowned than those of the Intelligent compositor, and ouo of the oddest of these was perpetrated in Paraguay towards the close of the reign of Lopes. Wanting u few men to move forward a piece of artillery,the Diet aturdfs* patched an order to the authorities of an inland department to have live or six recruits ready for the third morning thereafter. The operator read for “soU° recruits. “BUtr* recruits, ami so trans mitted the message. Thu authorities were in despair, fur the rigorous conscription during the long war had’left them S"arccly anything but women and the sick and old, but Lopez's orders were usually obeyed Implicitly by people who cared for their throats, and they scoured tho country uigbt and day, till on the third morning they presented to tho Dictator's astonished view an array of 1150 males, lame, halt, and blind, turn from the crudlo and the grave, uud, deprecatingbU wrath for non-fulllUmum of his orders, explained that there was not another mule in the province who could walk. A Nursery for Statesman. H'iit/orU Cuurant. There is another institution in Munich width is too noteworthy to l>e passed In silence, although it is nut a necessary nurt of the system. This is tho Maxlinlliiuium, founded by the lato King os a sort of u nursery for statesmen and dip lomatists. beyond tno I her, at Hie olid of Maximilian street, U erected an Imposing build ing, nut in the best taste, where a certain number of students are lodged and Instructed free of cost. Only those are admitted to its privileges who have stood llrst iu every doss from the primary P'hool upward. Its Inmates nmy bo, ami usually arc, at the same time membera of the University and pursuing pome pal I ini Ini' eour*«- tin n-. The fortunate oiici who an; admitted to the Maxhnllhumm an* lodged, hoarded, Hotbed, and have besides n nriuln amount of pocket-money given them.

And after enjoying these advantage* they are not obliged to serve the Stale, hut nmy go Into private life, fn fact, many of them do, lor they aru sure of brilliant situations and good pay. AMUSEMENTS. Tin: CHOPIN RECITALS. The tenth and hist of Mr. Carl Wolfsohn’s Chopin recitals occurred nt Standard Hall last Saturday afternoon. The programme, which was especially prepared as a tilling climax to the series, was excellently gotten up, and pre sented a series of contrast*, showing the differ ent styles of Chopin’s compositions. The pro gramme embraced the polonaises In A flat major (mi)llaire) and C minor, op. 40, Nos. I and 2; three nocturnes, op. 9, larghctto In II flat minor, andante In K flat major, and allegretto In II major; tw*o Impromptus In F sharp major, op. 30, and (I flat major, op. 51, ami tho Allegro de Concert, op. 40. The lint-mentioned polo noise Is a popular one, while the second, which is not to well known. Is of u very sombre and passionate character. The three nocturnes, although being one of Chopin’s earliest work*, are good Illustrations of this style of composi tion, although they dllfur from uadi other in character. They are quite well known, us they do not contain such technical dllHeultlc* ns most of the others, Thu first impromptu made a decided Impression upon the audience. The feature of the programme was Allegro dc Con cert, which is a work of such elegance and grandeur, ami containing so many brilliant imiM' iil ld< as, as to give it n place with Chopin's concertos and sonatas. It Is om> of his latest compositions, ami is a work of such breadth ami depth ua to render most of his other works unworthy of a comparison with It. Probably as uu act of piety of Mr. Wolfsolm to Chopin' or to satisfy the curiosity of the In quisitive who hud heard that Chopin had writ ten some compositions for the voice, the vocal parlof the programme consisted of tlx songs of Chopin entitled, “What it Young Maiden Loves,” “ Melancholic." “ Malden’s Wish,” “The Messenger,” “The Ring," and “My •Joys.” Chopin wrote sixteen songs, of which these six are the best, but they do not deserve the name of song,—they have never enriched song-literature any,—rather that of Polish national melody, which they arc In reality. They are very simple, plaintive lilts of melody, in most of which the mazurka movement predominates. Mrs. O. K. Johnson, who eang them, received a hearty reception when she appeared,—probably her success of last Thursday was vet fresh in the minds of the audience,—and made as much out of them a* an artist cun. Mr. Wolfeulm’s recitals arc over now, and the exhaustive list of Chopin’s works which he has given us Includes the two sonatas, four scherzos, four ballades, all the {Kiloiiaises, fourteen noctuues, six preludes, eight etudes, eleven waltzes, four Impromptus, four mazur kas, rondo, haleru, barcarole, the berceuse, tarantullc. fanlusle, and the allegro de concert. The vocal parts have consisted of songs of Rubinstein. Rolf, Ksser, Liszt. Jensen. Richter. Franz, Mendelssohn, and Chopin rendered by Mrs. Thurston, MUs While, Mias Haskell, Mrs. Johnson, Miss Forseman, Ml»a Shaw, and Mr. (Jill. Next season Mr. Wolfsohn will give a scries >f historical recitals, beginning with composers jf the seventeenth century. Tuesday evening the loot rehearsal of the DeetliuVcu Society lakes place at their rooms, uml we understand that Miss Jessica Haskell will slug the soprano soli* of Memlelssolm’s cantata, “Hear My Prayer.” Friday eveulm: the Ueethoveii will dose 1U season with u mu sical reunion at Its rooms. Next Saturday afternoon, nt half-past 51 o’clock, at Standard Hull, Mr. Wolfsohn will give a reception to the pupils of tliu Chicago Musical College and Its jJircetor, Mr. Zlecfcld, when he will he assisted hv Mrs. O. K. Johnson, Metiers. Gill, Lewis, and Elchheim, ami four of his pupils. in relurti for a similar compliment tendered Mr. Wolfsohn by Mr. Zicgfeld some time ago. Mftklng the IToino lltwc. The following 1» said to be one of Dom Pe dro's letters home, Intercepted by the Cincinnati tSaturda;/ A’o/M; I'iiilal)i: u*hii. May 8. ’70.—1 must write yon of the peculiar treatment of idiots in the United Btnten. In Ilrazil. an you know, we coniine that unfortunate class In asylums and ouhinlt them to Hitch humane treatment an will mitleati* their calamity if it does nut improve their menial cun* dilion, hut in this country asylums have been abolished and Idiots an* treated to an exercise called •‘baseball." All donut play at once, of course. A great Iwdy of them go into some open lot, and “nine 1 ’ are selected to play agalnH an* other so-called “nine," while the remaining idiots sit and stand around, uttering Incoherent gibberish meanwhile, and Indulging lu idiotic yells ul frequent intervals. 1 went out to what they call the “base-ball grounds ” the other day. aud found at least tiu.ouu people con* gregated there. They were of all ages, sizes, sex es, and conditions, and all more or less demented. From )ny observations that day 1 cannot say lliat I was favorably impressed with busc-bull treatment for the feeble-minded. 1 think the old-fashioned asylum, with 1U attending diiclpllnc, is better fur tliem. 1 would like to describe ’'base-ball” If I could, built Is so foolish a performance that Ills dilllcuil for u sensible man to convey an Intelligible idea of It to readers In the full po-sossion of their Intellects. Pulllcp II to say that it consists mainly in one man Hinging a bull ul another, who makes a wild and ufttimes fruitless oflort to hit it with a club. The former Is called a “pitcher." He takes the ball lu his hand, scrutinizes it carefully to make sure that it isn’t a codfish ball, then glances tip at the clouds to see if it Is likely to rain, then casts hU eye around at.the Infirm Intel lects who arc widening him so intensely from the benches, looks Intently at the ground as if se lecting Home good depot to sit down, then wheel ing suddenly on bis heel he spins the ball with a swift, jerking motion towards the mun with the but. You cannot imagine the frantic yells that crowd of impaired mental constitutions scuds up if the butler hits it and sends it splmilnc* a long distance, particularly If It Isn’t captured bv the nimble idiots who run after It be fore he can run around a given circle. 1 was curi ous to know whether or not this exercise was pe cuniarily profitable to those who participated In It. and 1 asked the aforementioned base-ball report er, “Un those unfortunate creatures who pluy base-ball ever make anything!" and ho replied, ••Oh, yes, they make their home-base occasion ally." i’oor fellows, I should think they would make home base enough, but of course (hoy can't help It. They were bom so, for the must part, though I am told that base-ball Idiocy Is contagious and on tbo Increase. Woiimii'* lli£lit* In llUKtiln. Tho Russian Uovormnenl have of late began to oppose systematically all movements tending to open in* new avocations for women. A new case or such opposition hits just occurred at Moscow. A lady Mine.
