Siegfried by poisoning, was continued yesterday In the General Sessions before Recorder Hackett.

MARSHAL MAGRUDER, OF MADISON STREET. Vhe Green-Eyed Monster In a Boarding House?Pains and Penalties of Unlicensed Pistol Practice?Placed on Trial and the Complainant Mysteriously Absent. The particulars of the shooting affray which occurred in a Madison street boarding honse on the 80th ef last January are still fresh in the public i mind, as at the time It occasioned considerable ex cltoment and comments. It will be remembered that a man named Marshal Magruder was somewhat enamored of a young lady boarder, and allowed the grsen-eyed monster to take possession of his soul because of rival attentions paid to her by a fellow boarder named Clarence J. Lockwood. The Ill-feeling 4 engendered between the rivals for the lady's favor culminated In quite a tragedy and nearly a death. On the evening of January 20, after a difficulty between Magruder?who claims, by the way, it Is said, to be a connection of the late Geneeral In the Confederate service of the same name? Lockwood retired to his room. He had not been there long before his door was suddenly forced open, and Magruder stood before him with, a pistol In his hand. He shot twice at Lockwood. He then aid, looking at bis prostrate and bleeding victim, "I told you I'd kill you and I have. Didn't I tell yon I'd do It T" After this exclamation he left. Magruder yesterday morning was arraigned at the bar of the Dyer and Terminer, Judge Brady on the bench, charged with felonious assault with Intent to kill i^ockwood, who meantime, however, has recovered from the Injuries inflicted. The accused stated that ho desired a postponement of his case, as bis counsel, Mr. William F. Howe, was engaged In another Court. Mr. Phelps, District Attorney, said that all the witnesses tor the people were in attendance, and as the case was a very aggravated one he thought that the Court should assign counsel for the defence And the case proceed. The prisoner demurred to this, but at last had to wield to the flat of the Court, aud Colonel Charles S. Spencer assumed charge of his Interests. Colonel Spencer said that lie had just ascertained that the complainant was absent, and he Asked a delay of the trial on this aecouat. Mr. Phelps charged that his absence had been caused by undue means by the prisoner and his friends, and that was an additional reason why the case snouiu be peremptorily tried. The Court decided that It must go en, and at Vonce the work of getting a jury was commenced. This occupied the rest or the day. The trial will be proceeded with on the opening of the Court this morning. THE HEGGI POISONING CASE. Close of the Prosecution?Opening for the Defence?The Testimony. The trial of Frederick Heggt, charged with poisoning Frederick J. Siegfried, was resumed yesterday In the General Sessions before Recorder Hackett. Dr. alpheaus B. Crosby was called and examined t>y District Attorney Rollins, and his testimony relative to the action of arsenical polsoa upon the human system was similar to that of Dr. McCready And other medical gentlemen examined last week. Mrs. Elisabeth Webner testified that a notary named Frederick Summers died in Newark In July or August of last year. } Summers was a witness for the prosecution by whom they expected to prove eome proceedings which took place in Newark between Siegfried and Beggt in respect to signing the will. Frederick Siegfried, the son or the deceased, was recalled and examined at great length. He testified that the last time lie saw his father alive was on Saturday the 2lst of August, lgoo, the morning of the afternoon upon which he died; that the deceased was all black about the mouth and teeth; that be could not talk, und that he pulled up his t legs and clenched his hands as If he had cramps; i the witness went to Newark with his wile when he ' ^ found the deceased had gone there, but did not go 4pto the house hlmseif: he (the witnes/) saw Uyggi NEW YOI After ble fether'e deatn at the sarrofhte'B office, when an enort waa made to break the will, lie (Heggi) being there claiming under the will; the deceased waa over sixty years old, and with the exception of cramps In his legs he was healthy. Mr. W. F. Howe subjected the witness to a severe cross-examination. He said that a week alter his lather waa buried he told his lawyers (Wright and Culver) that he was poisoned. The witness dented having signed a petition to the Surrogate In which he represented himsell a? the only son of the deceased. Caroline Schubert was the next witness. She said she first met Bleglrled, the deceased, In I860, and lived with him fllteen weeks in First avenue and three weeks In Ridge street: tnat he was healthy In July, and thai she bad a child by him; Ileggt visited Siegfried every day In Kidge street, and three weeks before be (the deceased) left, Heggl told the witness that she must leave; that Heggi had no further use for her, and she saw that Heggi wanted to get Siegfried away; a day or two alter the prisoner came for the things belonging to the deceased. On her cross-examination the witness said that she knew Siegfried's wife was alive when she went to live with him; that alter the deceased left she got a warrant for damages, and finally compromised the matter by accepting a lager beer saloon; a lawyer named Fox received $100 fees for making out the necessary papers. Joseph Recklin testified that the last time he saw Siegfried alive was In First avenue, In March, 1809, and then he was a strong and healthy man; the deceased appeared to be very loud of bis sou's little child. Herman Fox, a lawyer, testified to the fact that Caroline Miller, known as Caroline Schubert, applied to him to commence uu action lor seduction and breach of promise of marriage against Siegfried, and that on the 3d of August, lsoy, lleggi effected an arrangement by whicli she was to receive a lager beer saloon in Iildga street, with the fixtures, from Siegfried, he agreeing to pay the lawyer's tees, which amounted to $loo. Luke C. Crimes, a clerk in the Surrogate's office, produced, among other papers, the will of Frederick Siegfried, which was admitted in evidence. The deceased bequeathed to his "beloved friend, Frederick Heggl," all his estate, consisting of $2,600, deposited In the Dtme Savings Hank at Newark. Frederick Siegfried was recalled, and, in reply to a question put by Mr. Howe, Bind that he did not know whether he ever made an agreement with Wright A Culver, lawyers, whereby he was to give them halt the proceeds if they succeeded in breaking the will before the surrogate. The prosecution rested their case, reserving the right to call another witness in the morning. THE CASE FOR THE DEFENCE. Mr. Howe, in an effective and eloquent address, opened the case In the afternoon, stating that he would show the accused had worked steadily for fourteen years for a well-known firm In this city; that he had an lrreproachatde character; that the defendant, whe was over sixty years old, was a native of Switzerland, and that an Intimate friendship existed between him and Siegfried fer forty years. The counsel would show that Siegfried discarded his wile and took Caroline Miller to live with him, which caused a great deal of domestic unhapptness and ill-feeling between old Siegfried and his son; that il^ggi sought to conciliate them aud accompanied Siegfried to Newark to avoid the annoyance of a prosecution by Caro line Miller. Other facte would he shown, which would clearly establish the Innocence of the accused. Dr. Freeh was the first witness called for the defence. He was asked a number of questions about arsenic and its effect upou the body, and in answer to a qnestlon of the counsel gave it as bis opinion that the finding of a quarter of a grain of arsenic in the portion of the remains examined by Dr. Endemann by the tests applied would be a very suspicious fact, tnough it would not positively show that the person died from the effects of arsenic. William F. Andrews, in whose employ Heggi had been for fourteen years, .testified tUat Ills character was remarkahlj g?od. The case will prpbably be concluded to-day. DANIEL )REW IN COURT. Legal Dispute Over a Wall Street Operation?A Particular Stock Pool Containing Some of the Elements of a General Whirlpool. Azartah Brady has brought a snit in the Supreme Court against Daniel Drew, Kenyon, Cox A Co., and some other prominent Wall street operators. The complaint sets forth in substance that tbe plaintiff and most of tbe defendants entered into a pool arrangement In Waoash, Western and Toledo Railroad, in which the plaintiff was to take 12,500 shares with a margin beyond that number. Kenyon, Cox A Co. were to be the brokers for the pooL At the close of tbe pool the brokers reported 185,000 shares on hand and the cost $6,767,619 89, and they called on plaintiff to take up I $15,noo shares on that basis. It is further insisted In the complaint that the brokers used trie pool stock for puts and calls and lor other purposes, and calls for afuli and complete account irom the brokers of all their transactions in relation to the pool stock, and niadfe the other members of the pool parties defendants. The defendants demurred to the complaint for defect of parties plaintiff, and the plaintiff moved for judgment ob t.nelr demurrer as frivolous. The motion came up lor a hearing yesterday before Judge Kancher in Supreme Conrt, Chambers. Mr. Marbnry, for dclendants, claimed that they bad a right to knew what members of the peol were In interest with the plaintiff, and for what reason thev, who were all really equally Interested with Hoody, declined, ir they did decline, to join with him as plaintiffs. He said that they had a perfectly sound and good deleucc outside of this to the action, but wished this point settled. Mr. Hurrell, for the plaintiff, Insisted that this was an ordinary case of settling accounts where any one party might bring an action. The Court took the papers, reserving its decision. STOKES AGAIN. Motion to Amend the Judgment RecordGrounds of the Motion?Judge Brady Takes the Papers. Mr. Dos Passos, of counsel for Edward 8. Stokes, yesterday made an application befote Judge Brady, In the Court of Oyer and Terminer, for an order to show cause why the Judgment record in the case of Stokes should not be amended. He based his motion on the ground that the present judgment record does not Include the proceedings before Mr. Justice Cardoso ou the plea in abatement; that it does not include a statement of the prisoner's absence during a hart of the final trial; that It does not shew tuat Judge Hoardman was similarly absent and that It omits the affidavits used on the motion lor a new trial before Judge hoardmau. An affidavit, of Mr. John D. Townsend was presented, showing that these matters were omitted and urging their importance. The Court took the papers, promising an early decision. COURT OF APPEALS. niwnlBir of a. Nnalan In this Cltv?Bust ness Awaiting Their Disposal. In accordance with the announcement made several days since in the Herald the Court of Appeals began a session yesterday in this city. Their place or meeting was the old lioard of Supervisors'room, in the New Court House, Tor some time past occupied by the Supreme Court, Ocneral Term, and, in fact, now set apart exclusively lor the use of the latter Court. All the Judges were promptly in attendance. The Conrt, as is well known, is made up ot San lord E. Church, Presiding Judge, and Associate Justices William F. Alien, Kuius W. Peckhain, Charles Andrews, Martin Grover, Charles J. Folger aud Charles A. Hapallo. Mr. E. O. Perrtn, the Clerk of the Court, was also present, as likewise H. E. Sickles, reporter, and Amos Dodge. The printed calendar presents a rather formidable array of cases to be heard. Upon this calendar there are 174 cases. Out of this number no less than 111 are appeals on cases tried in New York and Kings counties?a fact showing conclusively the preponderance of litigation in this section of the State. It is, in fact, lor this reason and for the convenience of counsel, that the present session is being held. Ppon the calendar are no cases, however, of special public Interest. There are no appeals in any murder cases, which is a very unusual circumstance. Large as the calendar is it is thought possible to finish It in two weeks, and in three weeks at the longest. First on the calendar was hearing the argument on the appeal in the case ol the will of the late John Kellum, the full particulars of which have already been given in the Hekai.p. The argument occupied some two hours, and upon Its conclusion was taxentup tne case of Augustus W. Klngshnry, administrator, Ac., respondent, against Nathan Kussel and orners, appellants. This case occupied the rest ol the day. _ . Court of Appca.li Calender. The following Is the Court of Appeals day calendar lor March 25:?Nos. 2, 6, 5, 14, 15, 18, 10, 20. BUSINESS or THE OTHER COURTS. COURT IF OYER AMP TERMINER. The Chatham Square Murder?Nixon To Be Tried Next Monday?A Lawyer Clogglng the Wheels of Justice, and How He Does It, The Court of Oyer and Terminer met at half-past ten yesterday mornlug. Judge Brady, who seems to ha7e become a fixture in this Court?in.fact, be said yesterday that be shall continue to sit till the present criminal calendar Is disposed of even down to the pettiest cases awaiting trial, was on the bench. As usual there was a large crowd in attendance. Assistant District Atforficy Lyons moved the trial or Michael Nixon, ludlcted for the murder of Charles Plyler. Mr, WHiiam F. Howe, counsel for Nixon*said that IK HERALD, TUESDAY, It at the last session of the Court, when he agreed to proceed with the trial of this case, he took into consideration the tact that the Heggl murder trial, on which be was engaged In the Court of General Sessions, would be finished before this; but unfortunately the sickness of a Juror had delayed the trial. He had all the witnesses ready, and would be ready to go on with the trial at ouce did not his engagement in the General Sessions preclude him irom the possibility ol doing so. He regretted being compelled to ask further delay, but the necessities or the case compelled him to auk of the Court an adjournment of the case till next Monday. Mr. Lyons replied that It was a melancholy fact that with the exception of two cases all the prisoners now conflned in the Tombs under indictments for murder had retained Mr. Howe as their counsel. As to the application for another postponement of this trial he wished that the Court would announce to Mr. Howe that lie must be prepared to try his cases when called, or else the wheels of Justice would be clogged. "1 suppose the counsel Is no way responsible for this," said Judge Brady, smiling. "He cannot help his popularity." "I thank you for the compliment," answered Mr. Howe, blushing, "llut one thing is very certain? I do not wish to clog the wheels ot Justice." Mr. Lyons said he would like it agured upon that Mr. Howe he In readiness after next Monday to proceed with the trial or all the rest of his oasqs. Mr. Howe suggested that suincient unto the day was the erll thereof, but, alter this quick-witted suggestion, assured tho Court that utter the Ncggl case was finished he would be ready to proceed at once with the trial of any and every cose the District Attorney might see fit to place on the calendar. Judge Brady granted the application of Mr. Howe, and ordered the tilal of Nixon to be set down for next Monday. The C?se of Thomas Goodstetn. Thomas Qoodsteln was next called up for trial. The charge against him Is burglary, larceny and receiving stolen goods. Colonel Spencer said that he appeared for Mr. Howe, who was Goodsteln's counsel, una he claimed that the prisoner, having already been arraigned in the Court of General Session* and pleaded there, could net be tried In this Con' i. Judge Brady overruled this oh ection, end asked If the witnesses wore present in Court. Colonel Spencer said that he could not give any lniormation on this subject. "Perhaps Mr. Hummel," added Judge Brady, spying Mr. Howe's partner among the crowd of lawyers present, "maydenow something about it." "1 know very little about the witnesses," quietly answered Mr. Hummel; "but this X know, that the bondsman was not notilled until lute last Saturday night, and as he Is a juror he could not very well attend here," Alter some further remarks the case was set down peremptorily for to-morrow. Miscellaneous Cases. The cases of Charles Carson and John Brown, for burglary, and John McCauley, for larceny, were next called. They had each employed Mr. Howe as counsel, and Mr. Hummel asked the postponement ot their trials till Wednesday, which was granted. A week ago last Saturday afternoon Mrs. Clarke, a boarder at the Albemarle Hotel, was walking up Lexington avenue, In the vicinity of Forty-seventh street, when a youth came up Buuueuijr uviiiki nur, iiirvn uue nnu uiiiuuu uur bo as to confine her arms, and with the other helped himself to her pocketbook and then ran away. Fortunately, through her crlea of "Stop thief!" the cnlprit was arrested. This youth, who gnve his name as James McCord, was called up to plead to the charge. He plead guilty, and when asked how old he was said "Twenty." He had nothing else to say. Mr. Justice Brady In sentencing him said that he understood he was a thoroughly bad boy, and he should, had he stood trial, have sentenced him to twenty years' Imprisonment. He sentenced him to fifteen years at hard labor in State PrlBon, as a warning to all of his class. SUPREME COURT-CHAMBERS. Decisions. By Jndge Fancher. Flaherty vs. Flaherty.?Order granted.

Some Interest was occasioned among the haMtufis of the Jefferson Market Police Conrt yesterday afternoon by the arraignment or a very attractive young lady on charge of disorderly conduct made by George Parks, an actor now performing at the Union Square Theatre. The evidence showed that the parties had become acquainted about a year since, from wnlch had resnlted an intimacy terminating in much infatuation on the part of the young lady. Her persistent attentions became very annoying to Mr. Parks, and, upon his expressing a determination to break off the acquaintance, sho commenced a course oi systematic persecution, stooping him in the street aud at the doors of the theatre, and so conducting herself as to attract the attention of passers by: calling at his boarding house an I refusing to leave when requested to do so, and, in a word, hanntlug him like a shadow. She associated with her several persons, both male and female, and as sho threatened to kill him on a number of occasions, he has been compelled to go (o and fro iront the theatre with an escort. Some three weeks since the thing ha I become so unbearable that Mr. Parks earned her arrest,?nd sh< wus brought up before Justice t'ox, wluxUscliurged her on promise to annoy htm no morn. She ntil persisted, however, and yesterday wus lie 14 to bat la the sum of tooo u> keep the pot^co. [ARCH 25, 1873.?QUADRTT MUSICAL REVIEW. The great danger to a young and popular gong writer la that he may be Induced, by the olaasoroua demand of publishers or his own misguided vanity, to write too much. There are m my example* of sad wrecks in this respect among us. Should a song chance to make a great hit it is generally sure to lead to the infliction of an Inexcusable amount of trash by the same composer. We know even some of the best ballad writers In this country, whose melodies have been household words, not only here, but In Europe, sad who turn out an inconceivable amount ol machine work, In which the question of pay, not of art, is considered. This deluge of childish nonsense, and Its most irultiul sources may be found In Cincinnati and Chicago, does Incalculable Injury to ths cause of manic. Yet it flnda ready sale, especially among young ladies whose public sehool education, unfortunately, lias not included mnsic among Its ctber branches. We find no such trash amoug the German publications, because music is made a regular branch of education In the schools of Fatherland, whereas the nnhlii* flAhnAl Innphnra nf fltia htr thn aunavA. clal system new in vogue, tend to vitiate all taste for the divine art. Nothing tends to promote enjoyment of the domestic circle and to make home realiy happy and attractive more than music. The domesticity of the aermans, their most sagaciouB characteristic, Is partly traceable to this source. When harmony Is enshrined among the household goils, peace and happiness aloue can remain there. Therefore, for nigher considerations than the idea of a mere accomplishment, the Hoard 01 Education should promote, by all means at their disposal, the study of this charming art. Louis Bergo, Fourteenth street, publishes the following:? "My Mother's Song." Tamaro. The melody lacks the spontaneity of the other songs of this

composer, and the work Is rather labored. The words do not Ut the music in one or two phrases. The accompaniment Is very pretty and lends no little interest to the song. "Mamma's loo Anxious," humorous ballad. II. P. Danks. Of Its kind very good, aud lull ol gayety. "Would Love Outlast the Roses' Bloom?" song. Danks. A taking little melody In 12-8 time. The tine catalogue of J. N. 1'attlson has been added to the list of llerge's publlcatioss. Edward Schuhcrth A Co., Union square:? "Nameless lialop." J. M. Lander. It seems almost desecration to Introduce a theme from Chopin's "Marche Fnnfebre" and place It In the middle of very commonplace subjects, but yet Mr. Lander has done It. "Idyile." A. Dorn. Sparkling waltz themes In a quaint setting ot Choplnish origin. "(Jood Night," song. O. B. Boise. The melody is not over-Interesting, but it is neatly accompanied. "Wlegenlled," cradle song. Alfred Blame. Simplicity of thought constitutes the chief merit 01 thlssong. "A Dream at S?a" and "Spring Waltz." Teresa Carrens. Both are very ambitious works of the bravura school. William Hall A Son, Broadway:? "Be Not Lonely, Mother," ballad. Mrs. Jane Sloman Torry. One of those machine songs, made to order and Intended for delloatc constitutions. "Those Sweet Words," ballad. Rosalia. The foregoing remarks will apply here, only it should be administered In more delicate cases. "Under the Starlight," serenade. Mrs. Torry. A firctt.v theme, nicely accompanied and graceful In ts flowing measures. "Victory Polka." Howard Cadmus. A good dancing tune, without any special degree of attraction. Dltson A Co., New York and Boston :? "Torchlight March." Meyerbeer. This Is a splendid leur-hand arrangement or the ruinous v.ackeltAnze." It w 1 the pWce <h> rthtishirur of the Garde Republican,. Hand at the Boston Jubilee. It will be found an excellent study for two performers. "Wanderer's Rest," norccau. F. Splndler. There Is more real merit in this little melody than In half the trashy songs published nowadays. "Moment Musical." Ernst I'erabo. We trust that Mr. I'erabo is not afflicted with many such musical moments, or It he be that he will keep his impressions of them out of the hands of a publisher. "Autumn Leaves." Q. U. Wilson. Good lor very tender beginners on the piano. "ttnr Own March." Colonel P. 8. Brown. A very showy, brilliant and effective march, and a graceful compliment to the Twenty-second regiment, to the officers and members of which it is dedicated. "Goodby," song. Frank Tally. A melody of exceptional merit, flowing and taking In its measures. We cannot see the utility of the chorda in the bass In the accompaniment. Why not single notes or octaves ? "Fairest one," song. Newton fFitz. Another specimen of machine music, with but one Idea In It, and that puerile. "Te Dcum." J. H. Swartwout. Dull and nnlnterestlng, with ocrasloual examples of false progressions in harmony. When will organists ever cease laying violent hands on this noblest of church anthems r William A. Fond A Co., Broadway:? This house publishes in very handsome form a collection of salon music under tie title of "Gems of Strauss." The best waltzes, polkas, galops and mazurkas of the three brothers?Joliann, Joseph and Edward?may be round in this series. "Darling," descriptive song. U. Millard. Of the same kind as "Meeting" and "Longing" by- the same composer. Mr. Millard should lnluse a little more melodic spirit Into his works. "Little May," song. Faustina Hasne ITodges. A charming mdodv, with all the finish of an accomplished song writer about It. "The Song of Tristram." A. L. Parsons. A specimen ot vocal recitative, with a very elaborate piano accompaniment. The words are from Tennyson's "Last Tournament." "Little Maid of Arcadee," song. Arthur S. Sullivan. A playml little melody, not always salted to the words, but with sufficient merit in it to excuse shortcomings in details. "1 Will Arise," sentence. John B. Marsh.

FRACAS 15 WASHINGTON STREET, A Blow that Came Near Killing a Woman?What the Assaulter Say?"I Just Tipped Her on tbe Head"?The tlei?al Result of Coming Between Han and Wife. Yesterday morning Henry and Annie Grogan, living in the room of Thomas Rice, at 10 Washington street, had a row together, in which pretty strong terms were used. They lived together as man and wife, and in the course of the dispute each denied being married to the other. When Rice heard this h" ordered them both out of his house. They both went away nnd shortly after came back, this time a little intoxicated. Then they began the row over again, and Rice oidered the woman to leave. She turned upon him and gave him some vehement abuse, when Rtce seized a carving knife and struck Mrs. Grogan on the head with It, making a large gash on lier occiput. 8he bled very projuseiy, but had strength enough to go for a policeman, who arrested Rice. When Annie arrived at the station bouse sbe had bled so much thut the blood covered her from bead to foot and had completely soaked through all her clothes. It was thought that she wa< dangerously wounded, and she was conveyed to the Park Hospital, where her wound was dressed, and It was found that, after all, it was of a very slight nature. She walked home again, where, of course, the peace was made between herself and Grogan. A Herald reporter aaw Rico at the Church street station. In his account of the row he said that when the woman abused him so he utilized the carving knife he bad in his hand, anil, taking the MMade "betnne me Augers," he said, "I just tipped her en the head wAh the handle." The Hervld reporter said tt was a rather severe "tip," but Rice ridiculed the Idea cj Its being dangerous, and said "ahe cunld stuad a hundred such tips" without it* hurting har.

What Frea Laura Thinks of Americans Abroad and of Sardou's "Uncle Sam at Home/* To thb Editor or tub (Tkuam):? Vlctorteti Sanlou Is a Frenchman, forty-two years of Age, and believes ta the Empire. "Rabagas," which had so brilliant a success in Paris a rear ago, 1h not much grosser in llscarlcatnro of French, than is "Uncle Sam" of American, democracy. The great dlirerenoe between tin two pla .a is that "Rabagas" is lounded en ract and contains brilliant dialogue, whereas "Uncle Sam" Is founded on Ignorance and is stupidly written. A woman is the mainspring of both. Tne heroine of "Rabagas" is an American widow, who solves all problems. The intellect of "Unci* Sam" Is centred in Mme. Hellainy, a Parlslcnne, who settles all difficulties and is a more strong-minded woman than this land of the strong minded ever produced. She is a speculator, a pailosophcr, a law. yer, a writer, a mentor and a gossip. She knows everything, and could finish the moral education of every American girl in the "comtdy" if she chose. (Or course no mention is made of Monsieur, and nobody knows whether he be dead or alive; but this Is Immaterial, for when a French woman becomes Madame she may go about the world alone without fear and without reproach, and cast stones at every American unmarried woman who does the same thing.) But Mine. Bellamy rises suporior to everything save censure. Her mission Is to be show woman extraordinary to the vlcos of this disgusting country, and she tells more lies in less time than could the father of them. Nevertheless I do not blame Snrdou lor making Mme. Bellamy and everything else lie. There is a grain of truth in his caricature. He has read Dickens, Ilepworth Dixon and the American newspapers. He has heard of James Flsk, Jr., and William M. Tweed. He kuows of Wall street "corners," and the disgraceful failure of an American banking house in Europe. Ho hears Americans making night hideous as they "liquor up" at the Amertoan "bar" In Hue Scribe. He learns that the Paris police are obliged to break up the New York clnb because of its rowdyism, lie obsorves a certain fastness of manner In the American girls who arc most talked about. He does not stop to ask whether there is a reverse to the medal. Why should he ? Is he not a Frenchman and1 an imperialist ? If he denounces democracy at home why should he spare a foreign and antipathetic people t He but obeys the law of his being. Democrat as I am I failed to become enamored of many of my country men and women travelling abroad; for either there are a great many rools In America, or all the fools in America visit Europe. I have not yet arrived at a definite conclusion on this subject. Truth is said to lie In a well, and it requires a deal of rope to get at it; but Judging from the fact that I have never seen at home such peculiar specimens as I have mot or heard or abroad, I'am inclined to believe that a large proportion of our idiots seek a transatlantic asylum. Perhaps this is the retort courteous we make to Europe for sending us hor adventurers, thieves and burglars. U Sardou meets these men and women, will he not draw a caricature? Is he an angel that he should not do this thing? ne accuses us of loving titles. Who dares deny the existence of snobs? That such monstrosities should arise in a republic is she penalty we pay for being "Anglo-Saxon. With AngloSaxon virtues we inherit Anglo-Sazon vices that break out in degenerate specimens of the American race. Says Sir Charles Dllke in his admirable book of travels called "Greater Britain," "Many American men and women who have too little nobility of Bonl to be patriots and too little understanding to sec that theirs is already in many points the master , country oi the globe, come to yon and bewail ?Ha fata whlnh haa no ivarwl thnm f a I>a born citizens of a republic, unci dwellers In a conntry where men call vices by their names. The least educated of their countrymen, the only grossly vulvar class that America brings forth, they fly to Enrope 'toescape-democracy,' and pass their lives In I'urls, Pan or Nice, living libels on the country they are believed to represent." These are the Amerlcuns Sardou hoH seen at tli Court of Napoleon. An adventurer himself, Napoleon received all Americans who opened the doors of the Tullnrles with a golden hey. Whether they spoke good English or bad; whether they were knaves or fools, made little difference to the hero of Sedan, so long us money was spent la Paris and hcaaty and toilets displayed at Imperial balls. "I would glvo half my lertune to see Louis hack on the throne ot France," said an American woman, not many montns ago, calling the ex-Emperor "Louis" in order to prove the Intimacy of tier acquaintance. This is the type of American most frequently found living In Europe, so that 1 was more grieved than surprised when a French republican once said to me, "You are the onlv American republican I ever met." "How uiauy Americans have you met?" "A dozen." These libels cannot live here, beeanse they are libels, and certainly America is well rid ef them and their offspring, who are apt to possess the vices of both hemispheres with the virtues of neither. "European Amerlcuns are a bad lot," exclaimed an Oxiord Professor recently. "They do neither you nor me credit." "When an Americau cotnos to ns from the United States," said a Cambridge man. shortly after, "he Is Likely to be clever and a good rellow, but when he comes from Europe he Is a poor creature and generally a snob. He tries to pass for an Englishman, and or e man was awfully cut up the other day when 1 told him that I knew hlrn to he American by Ills ac< ont. lie was trying to talk Cockney." II these transatlantic snobs only knew how they are desplBed by all whose opinion Is worth having I They are despised by the very persons who repeat their denunciations of the United States, for EaroKcans know the difference between gold and pineheck. "1 wish you'd write about a certain set of your country p'-ople who court our aristocracy," said a clever Englishman last Winter. "They make themselves very coutempuoie, never deigning 10 mention aay one who has not a handle to his name, always Informing yon of the grand houses to which they are Invited, and taking care to display all cards upon which there are coroiltk They array their servants In gorgeous livery, and get op coats of arms with mottos in Latin?a language that half of them do not understand. There ha ve even been American Ministers here who were snobs of the first quality." Elsewhere I hsard similar complaints of the snobbishness of certain American officials abroad. Women are even greater foots than man In this worship of rank which Is rank, worship, for the reason perhaps that women are more given to kneeling, and Prudhommes (I believe) has said truly:?"Leg grands ne nous pnralssent grands que parceque nous sotnmes bgenvnx." "Ibecame qulto disgusted wltb tbe girls on our steamer," grumbled a young American who crossed the Atlantic la a month that shall be nameless. "There happened to be on board tbe sea of an English baronet, and although be was an ordinary lellow, not half as nice as some of us. the girls vied with one another In attracting his attention." la It not tho same In Washington t Are not the attaches of forc'gn legations, fools or otherwise, of more social oouseaucnce than the cleverest of natives? This Is a fine return fot, tbe respeat and deveiloo of American men. Always excepting advaaced liberal Englishmen, there are no men lor whom our women should entertain such, regard as for these of this country. In dnrmnny women are domestic animals and drudges; among the Latin rsccs they minister to man's pleasure? nothing more. It lb the c veeptloual Frenchman or Italian who believes in the virtue o( woman, yet knowing, U they choose to think, that no Frenchman an-1 few Englishmen woatd tvarry a poor American, there arc girls who actvaily tie themselves (or life to iqen with views rerardiug women that ought ta b< thoroughly revolting to uil who have had the good fartunc to be tarn in the New World. The folly af some af ou r women passes i understanding. Fancy a mother who thinks It a greater "catch/' for har daughte t to marry a Prassian afllcer than to marry an American I "Well, you see he Is a notdemau," a rgues the mother to an Indignant friend. "St ippose he is noble, what then * Is be not poo/ and a foreigner f Woald he marry your dang M?r If she were not rich f" "No, It ta against Tjk law. All Prussian officers mast marry winner, with money." "And vou encanragc your daughter to give up ner country and home to become, the wife or a man for whom, were she penniless, she would have no attraction I She will settle down In a wretched provincial town while nexbesband will go wherever ! he Is ordered. For society Ahe will have the inane gossip of (ieruian wo/nen, who are good house| keepers, hut are ver ? narrow-minded and fearful scandal-mongers. An occasional trip to lierlln and Hppcarance at 'joart will vary the scene. And vou call in Is a brUViuut parti t Do you realize that ' your daughter has always been considered the equal 01 man. a'jd Is accustomed to such attention us she will never receive from Teutons f" "I never looked at the matter In that light," rcpl'.ca the foolish mother. "After all, the mater, does nut aeem as eligible aa 1 thought, and perhaps my daughter will change her mind." With such a mother can she have any mind to -changer German officers are Indeed line "catches.'' They belong to "nnnle" families, and, being. In the army, are attached to the court. Tlr,. majority are genteel paupers, but are not permitte-i to marry rich German girls whose rwuilies are "in trade," as such would be fNesoHtonces; ycl etiev will wed any American girl with Money, I though every dollar smell of the shop. MoU-roapnct v] ught to pioveutoui womfji trotu thus BtultUflm 13 I 4 themselves; hut the longer one live* the more one becomes persuaded that uothing la rarer thami common sense. As the prevailing governments ol the Did World are more or less despotic and thorough y aristocratic they look with no love upon Republic whose success Is a menace to divine right and the degrading spirit of caste. singularly Ignorant of all that concern* us, not thinking It worth wntle to study either people or Institutions, all their traditions and prejudices are opposed to us, and thug are heat pleased when Individual examples contlrria previous opinions. It becomes Important, then, that Americans abroad should honorably represent their country. Every man anil woman Is a bit of the Republic, is scaunnd and discussed, condemned or praised us such. European radicals, anxious for the coralag of the universal republic, look to us for practtcal evidence or what they so earnestly and unselfishly preach, and grow faint-hearted when they Oud In us lolly and- vice, combined with a total indifference to the propogatiou of the form of government wnlch the most enlightened minds of all countries believe to tie the best ror the adt vhncement of numauity. Many Americans visit Ko* rope lor what is elegantly knvwa as "a spree." outFrcnchiiylng last Parisians, they do everything that public opinion restrains them trom doing at home, and, returning, accomplished tp little but vice, graft French manners on republican principles, with sad results to the tree of liberty. The men go all leugths; the women go as far as they dare?som? times lurther. Paris is the cliesun rendezvous, not because of a bright sun and many works of art, but because folly need not be songhc. It comes without bidding and stays by yon as long as tbers Is a franc left lu your pocket. This 1m the only type ol American talked about In the French capital, for scum always rises to the suriace. when Lowell. Emerson and our best representatives reside lu Pails they lead retiring lives. What does Sardou know or want to know of them? It ta the extravagant rowdies of the boulevards that furnish material lor his pen; hence "Uncle Sam." shades of Mrs. Trollope, Captain Marryatt, Basil Hail and Dickens, are you wondering what ban coate o'er the spirit oi our dreamy Martin Chuz zlewlt, do you rejogeizc America lor your long-lost own ? Hut thirty year# between "American Notes'* anil "Uncle Samyet tnurk the Ulil'erence in treatment. Tito first recorded truth, anil wan received with indignant howls; the second records the basest of lies, and is received with decorous silence, occasionally broken by moderato laughter or feeble applause. What does it mean f Have we grown beyond our years t Are we too wise to quarrel with malicious ignorance, or too Indifferent to exert ourselves in self-defence f Both. Souio or us are wise and some or us are Indifferent; but how much wisdom and how much Indifference go to make up the audiences that "assist" at bardou'/h "comedy" of "I nolo Sam" no one can tell. True it is, however, that the most outrageous libels on America are listened to unmoved and uo man hisses when all American women are pronounced unchaste, Perhaps this is as it ought te be, but it seems to cue that the air would be somewhat perilled were a little Indignation occasionallymade audible just by way oi demonstrating that in becoming th.eker-sktnued Americans have not lost all sense of delicate leellug. Henceforth let uo lorelguer fear to paint the Kepuolic or the United States as blacK as hell itself. But I, tor one, am grateful to Mr. Daly for putting upon the stage this latest conception of Sardou's teeming brain, for the reason that it in absolutely truthful in one important respect, and therefore should be seen by every woman in New York, it tells Americana precisely what is thought of them by u large peroeutage or Frenchmen, Itputs on exhibition a young marquis who, because unmarried women are not hedged in by dragoons, believes with the rest ol his nations, that liberty uicuiiH license, lie acts accordingly with a precipitancy and case that do credit to bin virtuous training in that loving home which he apostrophizes iu a goody-goody speech live minute* belore making desperate love to the youug girl with whom he is intensely disgusted. She, the supposed brazen, heartless flirt, becomes Interested in this flower of French chivalry, and then the flower does his best to seduce her. Not succeeding, he ttnally, .finite de mieux, proposes matrimony and oonslders himself a highly moral young mun in rescuing Sarah Tapplebot (charming name l) from a country where young men and women associate without surveillance, and, what is more Immoral still, without the necessity of it I "Our daughter* are frank and free because they premeditate ue evil," says John Weiss In his essay on inurrluge, and even the fasoluatlng libertine, the Marquis de Kochemore, discovers that the step between flirtation and vice is not even taken by tne fastest girl of the fastest New York society. Furthermore, the .Marquis and the anthor of his being, Vlctorteu Sardou, onglit to know that girls given to desperate flirting are the last in the world to lose their heads aud be controlled by emotion. Flirting 1h a thoroughly cold-blooded fierlermance. When it ceases to bo cold-blooded t ceases to be at all. The moment two flirts become seriously interested in each other love seta in and matrimony follows. Please remember this. Messieurs Franeais. 1 have no defeuce to make ol our system or flirting; but it seems tome thafc flirtation between disengaged inen and women, who understand one another, Is much less vicious than the French system ot lovers wraua husbands. which Gallic literature, ou and off the stage, holds up lor admiring contemplation. Before writing another American "comedy" M. surdou should know that tUc American girls who yield to seduo tu111 are rarely in society and are never flirts. 1'hey are passionate, Ingenuous, loving not wisely, but too well, as naturally incapable ol; rice as a hardened flirt is incapable of impulse. II one talae step leads to many, it is becuusu oi desertion and a psblic opinion that brands a woman with disgrace lor erring through love and takes bj the hand the nuin that has accomplished her ruin. If M. Bardou will paint this picture in the colors It. deserves lie.will make am ends lor the utterly unci disgustingly absurd burlesque of "llncle 8am.'1 At least, .Sardou understands the French nature, and American girls need blame no one but them- selves U alter seeing "Uncle 8am" they treat foreign men with the same frankness us they treat* their own and llud themselves misinterpreted. Itought to teach them the best of lessons. It ought, to bid them beware of the wretched uuventurers who come tiver here lor the purrpose of catching heiresses by, fair meauau or foul; of the Italian counts and Fronch marquises, who do not hesitate to boast that their titles will buy any woman In the country. Ik. ought to convince them that, the mca who moat, respect them are the men most likely to love them ' unselfishly, and that our society will soon become-i rotten If, by the introduction of smith travellers a? the Marquis de Bocbemore, corrupt intent b? added to our freedom of manner. Liberty is onljl possible with integrity ot character, if "l.'noMr Bam" sickens American women of foreigners, distinguished or otherwise; if It makea them realise the tremendous differences between men r sired with Old World and men reared \itth New World ideas: if It sends home, however brutally, the lack that promiscuous flirtation is not a. crown t' at <?nobles the wearer, "Uncle Bum!'' will not have been acted In vain. Of course there are those who luelleve every lie In tho comedy. 1 sat in the neighborhood ot Uwo such sympathetic critics. When. Miss Sarah Tapplebot went up to the Marquis Hubert de Koeheinore; tapped ului on the shoulder and walked off with his chair the nobie foreigners behind me cluickled with delight.
