Miss Mat 8 Concert.?We have rarely teen the fashionable and musical circles of Waah ington so excited over a coming event $$ coi? cerning the debut, to-morrow evening, iw \f0t native city, of Miss Juliana May, who returns to this oountry after years of arduous applica tion to the science of music in the best schools of Birope, with a much greater reputation than was ever before achieved by an American can ta trice. There is a commendable spirit of nationality in the interest which the debutante's countrymen and women everywhere evince in her professienal career that is opening with so much promise. That interest is apparent here in the rush that has taken place to-day to secure tickets for to-morrow night, when she is destined to be welcomed with such a greeting as has rarely been accorded to a candidate for the admiration of the music-loving public. Well Done.?Mr. Henry P. Brooks, the op ponent of Mr Henry Winter Davis for Con gress in the late election in Maryland, has given notice of his intention to contest that gentleman's right to the seat awarded to him as the result of that contest. The ground of contest is the alleged fact that the supporters of the contestants were prevented from voting for him by violence, while by fraud the nomi nal vote of Mr. Davis was greatly increased. This is a step in the right direction. Its re sult will be to spread before the world evidence concerning this Baltimore election, the publi cation ot which, and the action of the House on it, will, together, work a radical cure, wo trust, of the great moral disease that has de stroyed the reputation of the capital of Mary land. Tns Chkrokeb Neutral Gaoc.vo.?The authorities of the Cherokee Nation have peti tioned the Government at this j*>int to dispos sess, by military force, the whites who have intruded upon a tract of the reservation of that Nation that juts up into Kansas, called "The Neutral Ground," which contains about 800,000 acres. The Government, we apprehend, is bound by treaty to comply with their request, under existing circumstances. So it is to bo pre sumed that directions to that-end will soon be issued from the War Department on the recom mendation of the Interior Department. Promoted axd Appoixtep.?Wm. B.
