for tbe old building, but tbe new one deserves something better, both in the way of artiste and imjnrssurii. For instance, if a manager like Grau, wbo has shown himself a man of vigor, Industry and progression, in harmony with the ?nt?rprising spirit upon which tbe American people justly pride themselves?wbo not toaly brought the greatest tragedienne of the age, Riatori, to Urn country, but has carried her through tbe United States with unexampled ; triumph?or some one of equal energy, we care not who it is, would take hold of tbe new Academy, it would be a guarantee of the revival of Italian opera. Grau, whether he be a Hungarian or a Bohe mian?and we know not which he is?is at all events a manager of experience and enter prise, and we would advise the stockholders to put their building in his charge. Everything there is fresh and juvenescent. The Academy lias received a new life and almost a new bap tism. All tbe old scenery and nearly all the old clothes have been burned up. Perchance some of the latter may yet be found In Chat ham street, but they will not probably And their way back to the operatic stage again. Therefore let as have a new manager and new artists in keeping with the new theatre. There are young singers of merit in Italy as plenty as blackberries, including sopranos, contraltos, tenors, baritones and bassos, who might be brought over to this country if any energetic manager would take the trouble to go over there and engage them. In fact there is no reason why artists who have as yet not con tributed to the reputation of the operatic stage in Europe should not be presented here, and, after winning fame in America, take back an enviable reputation to the Old World which might eclipse that of many popular singers who command success there. It only requires a manager of experience and enterprise to in fuse new life, novelty and brilliancy into our reconstructed opera bouse and give a respect able tone to Italian opera. The Political Plus Mum at the Cut** Howe-The General Order Bualneae. Tbe politicians, place hunters, office brokers and egg men are making a tremendous fuss orer the report of the Congressional committee specially directed to investigate certain "al leged abuses, frauds and wrongs" in connection with tbe management of the New York Custom House. This committee, It will be remem bered, spent some time at the Astor House during the winter, enjoying the good wines and the varied amusements for which New York is renowned, and, as appears from their report, interspersing these pleasures with the less inviting occupation of collecting all the gossip and scandal that the political m anagers of the investigation, who worked the wires behind the scenes, could manage to scrape together from disappointed applicants for Custom House "plums," discharged Custom Houae officials and deposed operators in the cartage and storage business. i The lengthy report, for the "incongruities" ?f which the committee feel impelled to apologise, bears evidence of the diversified character of their operations during their New York visit There is a confused jumble about Thompson and Bob Johnson, Patterson and Doolittle, Humphrey and Bergen, Barr, Brown ?nd Blzby, one mysterious Mrs. Perry, and several still more mysterious "Co. V which comprehensive term appears to be affixed to the name of every patriot who is animated by ? desire to serve his country through tbe pnedlum of the cartage and storage bquness of the Custom House. There is also a long rigmarole about the seizure business and tbe detective system abroad, and other outside matters designed to cover np the real objeot of the report; bnt tbe gist of it all lies in the Attempt to fasten upon Collector Smythe a charge of having corruptly bargained away a portion of the patronage of his office, and by this means to clear tbe way for a new Col lector. Mr. Smythe, who is no politician, but ? straightforward man of business, is amazed *t the Intricacies of the plot constructed for ^ls destruction, and publishes a card, in which he says, " I can only state that I testified be fore tile committee under oath that I have sever received or paid to any ons any sum whatever arising from general order or cartage businesses, having abandoned and rejected all offers of compensation as soon as I bad time to ttndsrstsnd and investigate their nature." j A correspondent, whose communication we also publish, gives a history of the manner in jrhlsh tbe general order business baa been dis Kied of by seven or eight of Collector ythe's predecessors. It has evidently been Regarded as the richest gift in the Custom Boose, and has always been divided np among the politicians. These men appear to have }nade an early attempt to renew their profit Able job under Collector 8mythe, and offered forty thousand dollars for the privilege. A hew firm of political patriots outbid them by tho amount of ten thousand dollars. In this pun, which was to come out of tbe general profits of the business, some of the President's pelatfvea, a son cf a United States Senator, a mysterious female and others arc said to have been entitled to a share. Collector Smythe, yho is no politician, but a banker and ? man of business, finding, from the ?tger scramble after tbe general order storage Ihit its profits must be large, saw at once a perns of relieving bis poorly paid and hard forking clerks from the heavy tax heretofore Imposed upon them for politloal purposes. He iherefwe Insisted that whoever might secure jUds lion's share of the Custom House spoils fhould pay out of Its profits the whole political ?ax assessed at each eleotion upon the poor clerks, inspectors, messengers and porters. This being agreed io, tbe business was given to th? snccessful applicants, whereupon the dis appointed politicians set to work to stir up the Investigation which has given rise to all this present fiiSs and fary. President Johnson should take no heed of ^he committee's report, which bears tho stamp of putllce upon it, and Collector Smythe should quietly pursue tbe duties of the Collectofship, giving natisfketion to the commercial men of the city and paying no attention to the scurvy tricks of politicians. If he continues to make he parties who seenre the lion's share of the spoils pay all the political assessments, made upon hi* employ^ be will merit the gratitude Cf tho poor clerfi and will lose none of his ^opnlnrity with tbe people.

Either stilts or a ferry line of flat bottom boats at the principal crossings would pay just now. Can not a patent stilt or scow company be char tered for the relief of the community? A Black Hwui Perhaps. Governor Swann, of Maryland, as a Johnson conservative, In his conflict last fell with Forney, oame very near involving the State in a bloody partisan row, and all to secure the election of a Legislature which wonld elect him to the United States Senate. Hit Legislature was secured, he was elected to the Senate, and he gave notice of his resigna tion of the office of Governor to the Lieuten ant Governor, in order to go to the Senate. The Lieutenant Governor, as the presiding officer of the State Senate, gives the notice to the Legislature, and forthwith preparations are made for the inauguration of the Lieutenant Governor as Governor. But on the last day before this expected event Governor Swann recalls his resignation. He has changed his mind. He will give up the United States Senate. The Lieutenant Governor Is taken all aback, and everybody is asking what is the meaning of all this. Perhaps we can ex plain. Mr. Calvert, the State Treasurer of Virginia, was recently called as a witness upon something before the Judiciary Com mittee of the Senate of the United States, and it is given out at Richmond that he was called to answer whether Governor Swann (in order to save from confiscation certain Vir ginia State bonds) had or had not, during the rebellion, taken the oath of allegiance to the Jeff Davis confederacy. Mr. Calvert could not tell: but it is conjectured at Richmond that Governor Swann can, and that accordingly, on " the sober [second thought," he has con cluded that " a bird in the hand is worth two in the buBh." Let the fact be made known. Besalta of Protectlaa. The Japanese government has given orders in France for several large iron clads, each of which is to cost about three millions and a half of francs. But for the high price of materials and labor under our present system of taxa tion these vessels would in all probability be built here. Canada has profited largely by the folly which has driven this valuable branch of trade from our ports. It is mortifying to see almost under our very noses the work that would have kept our. shipwrights profita bly employed taken from them by men who cannot compote with them on fair ground. If we persist in such legislation we shall become the laughing stock of the world. Never whs a suicidal tendency more crazily developed. CITY INTELLIGENCE. Th Fkbtival of Sokoti Tumtut. -To-day it cele brated the festival of Shruve Tuenday, more familiarly known aa "Pancake Tuesday." The name Shrove la derived from the Saxon word mrtfan, to con fear, and the festival la ao called because on this day the faithful were aocustomed to confsss their sias prspaaatory to entering upon tho holy season of Lsnt, wbleh com mences to morrow. After having confessed In lbs * morning the people indulged during the rtay in sports of all kindi, hut abstained from the uss of flesh meat. As a substitute for meat large pancakes were eaten: and from this custom Is derived the name " Pancake Tues day." The festival is called by the Gorman* Feu* fiacht (fast sve), and by the French Slardi Grat (fat Tuesday).

The Fairv Circle, and the farce of In ind Out of Place, and a full bouse was present, despite .be Inclemency of ibe weather, to Inaugurate the second week of the very successful engagement of Mr. and Mrs. Williams. In the first piece Mr. Williams has ichleved a decided success In portraying a character that may be regarded as a true type of Irish peasant manners. Con O'Carolaa la not, as many would-be Irish delineators represent, so unoouth, wild and semi barbarous individual, but a jolly, Vitty, rollicking, simple and honest being, fnll of fun and merriment, and overflowing with humor and good nature. Into this character Mr. Williams throws his whole son), and acta it with equal spirit He has immense command of fea tures, and a refined brogue, which renders tbe driest say Inn irresistibly comic, so much so that from tbe moment Con appears until he wishes goodby tbe audience are kept in a state of laughter and merriment, not to be excited by many comedians on the stare. Mrs. Williams as tbe Yankee Gal, and In her "variety" in tbe arterplece, is most successful, and last night drew down several times the hearty ap plause of a very discriminating and respectable audience, and in her singing was repeatedly encored. The company were well up In their several parts, es pecially Mr. Jack In the drama and Mr. Edwards In the afterpiece, each of whom did creditable Justice to tbe characters represented. Mr. Williams takes bis only benefit next Friday evening, when an attractive bill will be presented. Mtadt Theatre. It Is no easy task to transfsr successfully to either the German or the English stage the works whoee characters and incidents are essentially foreign to both. Even when the task is satisfactorily accomplished by tbe dramatist, the representative type* being identical with those of the' original p|y, are rarely embodied by the actors with that correctness whleh the critic should exact. This was made apparent last evening, when Hen Da wlson, a great artist, failed to interpret truthfully the feelings and manners of one of Eugene Sue's creations, the Marquis de Mailleford, a shrewd, world-wise, polished specimen of the French nobleman of the old school. In Dcr Burklige Marrptit, a five-act piece with no lack of dramatis fierttmtt, Mr. Dawison sustained the principal rfile, discoursed on all subjects on every occasion, Inter vened at that stage of afiairs when his services were most required, and, in fine, proved that he could justly claim to be the lieut ex macAitwl of tbe piece. His act ing was of course good, but his embodiment of tbe char acter was not such as those familiar with the novelist's outline would recognize. Frauleln Irscblct played ex cellently well, and was deservedly applauded. The ren dering of the other parts called for no especial notice. Tbe house, as usual, was filled. New York Theatre. Two new pieces are on the bills for this week at this pretty little placo ol amusement, in both of which lady Don sustains leading oharacters. Tbe performance opens with Tom Taylor's laughable comedietta entitled Nine Points of the Law, tbe part of Mrs. 8myllo falling to the lot of Lady Don. Her ladyship's representation of the crafty, hollow and yet affectionate nature of the scheming widow is exceedingly effective, some of the dialogue between hereelr and Joseph Tronolde (Mark Smith), being ao comical as to keep the audience in con vulsive laughter. This piece Is followed by Broth's ?i? ? U0 Prr**u and Andromeda, or the Maid and ...o"***1'- This extravaganza gives more scope for the display of I,ady Don's powers of burlesque acting than snythlng in which she has previously appeared, and will doubtless greatly increase the popularity which sbe has already in such a marked manner attained. Her impersonation of Perseus also gives an opportunity for tne exercise of her superior vocal powers, so too of the songs and snatches beln* particularly prettv. Mark smith appears In another tremendous make up m Cas siope; his rntrie last night was greeted by a very hearty ?TSf of Andromeda was sustained by Miss Kldredge, a young lady new to tho company. Although very young she possesses a good stage pr sence and a very careful and accurate enunciation. The piece was well set throughout and ran very smoothly, and will, no doubt, be extensively patronized by tha lovers of the spectacular and burlesque Olympic Theatre. The popularity of the drama which has bean on tha boards of the Olympic theatre for the past three weoks does not appear to wane from frequent repetitions, but rather increases in favor with each representation. Ij^t evening tha theatre was well filled with a fashionable audience, of whom fully one-balf ware ladles and to whom the drama of the Streets or New York seemed to ? perfect satisfaction. The piece was, aa it has been heretofore, wellperforated, each charactcr acting hi* or ber part faithfully, and the morn prominent ones being repeatedly applauded. Tha tableaux were loudiv en cored, iba fourth one particularly.

The andlence manifested their appreciation fre quently during tba night IWaaleal. Sovsrlni and Pease's fourth morning concert was given yesterday at Steinway'a rooms, and was wall attended notwithstanding the wat weather. Tho programme pr seen ted for the entertainment was apeclally excellent, and co an prised mora particularly tha romanxa, Don Pas quale, 'oy Donizetti, which tha rich voice of Signor Fossa t developed with fine effect Two wild, peculiar pieces, the Harwegian Peasant and Echo songs, were well per formed by blgnor Severinl. Duo buffo, Rllslr d'Amore duo on themes, from Criaplno, and selections trom Lu crezia Borgia, comprtsiug several popular, beautiful airs by Foasati, Severinl, A. H. Pessa and O. W. Colby, ware given with characteristic excellence. Signor Lotti. long and favorably known aa a singer In German and Italian opera and other musical enter tainments, gave his farewell concert last evening at Ptelnway Hall, on the eve of his departure for Europe. The attendance waa large considering tba weather. A foil orchestra and a number ol members of tba Arton FocUty performed a part of the programme, which waa delightfully varied. Mgnor I.0U1 sang a romanta from Faust and another from Don Sebastian wtth mach edict Mile. Naddl, a young and promising soprano, delivered with an attractive rrprit the Maxic Flute aria, wbtch mat with vigorous spplsuse. One of the most fashionable audiences that ever as sembled in the Brook lyn Academy of Music was present in tb*t edifice last evening in attendance on tha perform ance of Um sacred oratorio of the Messiah, under tba direction of Mr. I* F. Harrison, by tba same artists who took tho solo parts in tha rendition of that oratorio In this city, tha choruaea being given br tho New York Harmonic (society. The whole performance was in every way moat acceptable to tha appreciative auditory, and tho principal afttsta were most loudly applauded.

The new Academy of Matte vu all smiles and bril liancy tut night, as it ever the cue when the annual tribute te Charity is called for by the managers of the Nursery and Child's Hospital. Of all the balls of th season the Charity ball is regarded ae the most aristo cratic and select, for on the oocshIod of its re currence even the UiU of the Knickerbocker ele ment In the metropolis pay their homage to Terpsichore Then, and only then, the sub stantial portion ef the descendants of Peter Stuyveeant and bis qvalntly grave contemporaries is seen in public. The charitable character or the bell, the elaims ef the little ones left desolate and dependent on the good feelligs of the worthy burghers of the me tropolis and the admirable management of the annual charity ball are stfflcient guarantees for the thawing out of the aristocratic loo that hedges In the aboriginal upper ten or Ootbam.

TBI AKRAXCKMBMTS for the ball last night comprised only the platform which concealed the seats of the parquet and the let ters of fire whloh from many mouths of flame spoke the object of the assemblage. At the extreme end of the platform, ant! fronting the trlpls tiers of the audi torium, a rocky landscape made a rugged background to the kaletdoscoplo picture that moved on the dancing floor. Above, around, on every side gleamed countless gas jeta, and the crystals in the huge chandeliers in the centre darted a myriad lances of light on the shifting scene beneath. The ampbiteatre on each side bad Its array of brass, reed and string Instruments, with Lander presiding over the dancing and Grafulla over the promenades. roues AKJUifOBvnrra The ukase of Captain Brackett string out the line of carriages from Twenty fifth street down to Fourteenth, and thsnce towards Third avenue.
