CARLIST ATTACK ON BER&A Desperation of the Contestants- Shooting Prisoners and Firing on Flags of Truce. Gathering Gloom in tlie Northern Provinces. Barcelona, March 21, 1873. The aspect of the city has somewhat, improved Pa8t ^wo or three days. The anxiety, ich had reached an extreme point, has been greatly relieved by the removal or armed bands, Who spread terror throughout the city ever since the flth instant. At that date, it will be remem uered, military possession was taken ol all the pub 11c offices, ostensibly on the allegation that the Carllst party intended to venture on a coup d'etat. The truth is that there are more than ten thousand Frenchmen in and about Barcelona, including much of that element which, even in ordinary times, 1 b most unruly. The disturbed state or the country has created an Immense amount of misery among the working classes. To them it was a source of relief when the creation of volunteer forces had been decided on. The poor people agerly enlisted, since the promised pay of two francs per diem afforded a means of subsistence to tho men and their families. On the other hand the measure struck terror among the trading com in unity. Barcelona is not ouly a Spanish Lowell : It is at the same time what Liverpool is to England, is, iu lact, the largest commercial city or the eninsula. The middle classes, as well a* the more wealthy citizens, louud themselves utterly power less to resist the party, nor could they oppose the armament or the people 6>tll, unwilling to renin in mere spec tators, meetings were secretly organized I and energetic measures taken to provide against j emergencies.

Nevertheless, excepting a lew brawls, we have been saved, until yesterday, the humiliation of witnessing a street ll?ht. How ever, general distrust had takeu hold of the entire population. The intense excitement which pre vailed was heightened by the .act that the officers 01 the Civic Guard had notiUed their intention to resign in a body, owing to their in ability to withstand the humiliation to which their corps had been subjected. These Guards were never found wanting when called upon to Bus tain order. The corps is composed of as fine a set of men as auy public in Europe, and thus they regarded it as an act derogatory to their position when the police service was divided between the Guards and the newly-created Red Volunteers, m fact, a mixed guard, composed or volunteers and armed police would, inevitably lead, sooner or later to disturbances.

Barcki.ona, March 28, 1873. F.vcnts of great Importance are crowding upon us. The sccoud fight of Vlch, at which the Carllst chief, Gaiceran, oxposed himself with great intrepidity, resulted in the utter disciynflture of the republican lorces, who retreated in great disorder to Oranollers. Tho victory, however, was dearly purchased. Gaiccran received a mortal wound and died a couple ol days aiterwards. While the attack on Vlch was progressing, Sa balis, with the rciualuuer of his forces, marched rapidly oil lUpoll, where the small garrison ol about I two hundrod men made a determined resistance. A portion fortilicd themselves iu tho Church of St. Eudaldus; but alter a couple* of hours' flgliting were compelled to surrender. The tower ol the church was occupied by a party of nine, who showed a white handkerchief as a signal of surrender, upon seeing their companions in the cnurch overpowered. A Carllst oillcer advancod with an escort, and. uniortuuatoiy for the small garrison, was received with a murderous dis charge at point blauk, wliioh killed him on the spot and wounded three of his men. Savalls im mediately ordered straw and other light combus tible matter to be piled up at tho foot of the tower and ignited. Contrary to his Intention, the church Itself took fire, and the smoke and llames soon compelled the obstinate and unwise defenders of the tower to surrender at discretion. Tho proofs of their treacherous conduct lay beiore them, and they read therein the doom that awaited them. After being disarmed they wero led away a short distance and shot. Three hundred stand of arms, 8.000 cartridges and some artillery ammunition were found In the place, alter securing which and one hundred and lorty or sixty unwounded prisoners, the victors left for the town of Prats do LlusanCs, without touching any article or private property or molest ing any person. It is said, and most probably with truth, that 200 men from the surrounding country joined Sabalis next morning, and were immediately armed and incorporated into las band. THIS MARCH ON BEKOA. From ITats de Llusands. Sabalis has marched 011 the very important town of Berga, a lortilieii ;tlace and considered the key to Catalonia. During the li 1st Car list war, known as the seven years' war, this town was lor a long time the Carlist head quarters in Catalonia. Up to a lew days ago it held n narrisou sufficient for its defence, but the iniluences at work upon the army all over spam gradually dissolved ami dissipated those companies ol regulars and volunteers, leaving the place, with all Its valuable military stores, quite at the mercy 01 the lirst comer. Some think the peo ple of the town will resist, while others laugh at the* suggestion. A foice of some eight hundred men lett Barcelona vestcrdav with a couple of Held nieces, pretending' they were going to overtake Sabalis, who has three thousand men, at least, and several pieces of artillery. "They will never get beyond Oerona," said to me to-day the editor of one of the leading anti-Cariist papers. 'I his gen tleman went 011 to say:? "In former times the mutinous aud insubordinate connuct of soldiers In the Held was always checked by the presence ol the enemy. We see nothing 01 this now. At Vlch the soldiers, as a rule, did not tight, but turned their backs upon the Carllsts. The government, if we have a gwvernuieut, is without an army." CABLLST COUHAKE. The republican papers tniuk they throw discredit 1 upon the Carilats by alleging that at Vlch many ol | them rushed upon the troops with nothing in their hands but stones. Coming lrom so viuiunt an antl 1 Carlist source the fact must be accepted as true, > and is highly complimentary. That a soldier 01 the ! "Republic" should fall by a stone instead ol being 1 deceiitly shot through the head may be outrageous and arouse the sympathies of all true republicans, 1 but it certainly snows sreat devotion and Invinci ble oluck 011 the p:?rt 01 the stone-throwers. So no i womiei the Carlisle some tunes, If not invariably, I whip their adversaries. Vuu have probably learned by telegraph that one of tho difficulties of "the Madrid Cabinet has been CASTKi. All*8 THREATENED RESIGNATION. It arose lrom ihe fact that certain members of 1 the government wished to promote Generals Hidalgo and > ontreras to posts of honor and trust, while Mr. castelur was opposed to the step. It is said that, one 01 the parties 111 question harangued a crowd of mutinous soluiers the other day at i'ar ra?ona. with a red cap on Ins head. The ostensible object ol the harangue was to exhort the men to return t?> discipline and subordination to their officers; but ihe language used, it is further ' alleged, was calculated to produce the verv oppo site offeci, and the sequel has proved that the General shot very wide of the proposed mark. In plain terms, tne soldiers felt all the more encour aged to persevere 111 iheir mutinous conduct by the conduct and language of the speaker, it now ap pears that the matter has becu compromised by the nomination ol Ceneral Hidalgo to a post in the Canary Islands, while Coutreras Is again spoken ol for the position of Inspector General of Cavalry, and thus Castelar resigns himself tq bear the bur den of olllce a little longer. TUK INTERNATIONAL. It need scarcely said, is one of the greatest dis turbing element sat present agitating Spain. The telegraph ha.- probably informed you of the official aid and comfort given to that dangerous associa tion oy Figueras when lu .Barcelona. He authorized the nieuib?rs to take possession #1 the Convent of St Philip, in which to hold their meetings. The presence 111 the convent of a lew quiet priests, the legal possessois of the building, lar lrom being an obstacle in the mind ol Mr. Figueras, was an in centive and ottered, lie no doubt thought, a sul flcieiiti'y valid excuse lor his high-handed proceed ing The consequence has been, it Is asserted, an immense increase iu the membership of this asso ciation, hcneeiorth uuder government patronage ami protection, and a corresponding increase of terror and indignation in the minds of those who I have property of anv k.nd to lose. There is no : doubt whatever that readv money Is being rapidly I converted into foreign securities, and I learn iroui Rood authority that American bouds are in de mand. Those who have scene the Commune at work in Paris, Lyons aud Marseilles know what meetings of tho international forbode. Does an.v one doubt that they are one and the same tliiug? COMMUNIST IMPIETY. Does not cverv one iu Barcelona knew who sent a man to parade the Rambla from morning to night, bearing a large poster with these three ter rible words, "6'MWTd il Ulost " palufed upon R? War upon (iod! And the poor wretch walked up and down and earned his few reals, and had the sad courage to reappear ence more ami parade the horrid blasphemy, ami then we saw uo more of him. Il the earth lias not opened and swallowed him It is not his lault nor That of the Interna tional. And this Is what the Spanish government losters and protects from, the days ol Ruiz Zortilla down to those ol President Figueras. And then you will hear some people say, "The monarchists are the cause at a. I the trouble in Spain," which Is nothing more than tho echo of what Messrs, | Figueras. Castelar and the rest say. Their procla mation of the ijth iust. breathes Are and furious I anathema upon the cariists, aad they have the in credible edronterv to talk of now "the most valiant sind disciplined army Is pursuing the enemies of liberty,'' thai is to say, the enemies of the Inter national. Disciplined army! l,ook at the soldiers In Tarrugosa the other day, forcing their officers to fly and taking part In the celebration by the International ?t the anniversary of the Commune in Paris. The band or ide Chas seurs or Madrid headed the procession, and when the performance was over, these disciples of the International thought the "day of glory" could not properly end without tho murder of a priest, who was only saved by the courage and presence of mind of a citizen. On which side, pray, are we to place the promoters of disorder T on that 0! tne Carllsts, wlose banners bear the words "Cod, c ountry king." or on that of their enemies, whose banner is blasphemy ? These are the forces the only forces, now face to face in Spain. To which will the Almighty give victory r ???? we have just received news of a Carlist move ment in Saragossa. PROPEBLY PPNI8HED.

The Washington Market Bill Ordered to a Third Itead In^-Grern Mast Certainly Uo-O'Don ovan Rossa Looking for a Seat In the Senate. ALBANY, April 14, 1873. The two houses reassembled this evening with barely a quorum. The Assembly, as usual on Mon day evenings, loolecl away Its valuable time in silly debates, "just (or the fun or the thing, " and made its greatest points of stale wit over a bill to sup press ttie sale of prize packages, and this right in face of the fact that the hun dred days will be up next Wednesday. Before the session had come to a cloBe TUB WASHINGTON MARKKT BII.L was dragged Into committee of the Whole and had plain sailing until the clghtu section was reached. This section gives the Washington Market Com pany the llrst option to lease the ground on which the stands of Washington and West Washington markets are located? In fact, prohibits the Commis sioners appointed to take a valuation of the property to lease it uuitil after thirty days' notice In writ ing to the company. Mr. Voorlils, of ltockland, denounced this section as an outrage, and claimed that the property should be sold to the highest bid der and used lor commercial purposes. It was not uow, he said, a srood place for a market, and yet the bill makes it imperative that the property shall not be leased for any other than market purposes. Mr. Clark stoutly championed the cause or the present mar ket men, and advocated the retention or the section in the measure. The bill was finally ordered to a third reading by a vote or 40 to 2.1. ' The bill authorizing the construction or an ei.kvatkh railway in Church and other streets was also brought tip, but was strenuously opjtosod by Mr. llualey. So it was only progressed. TUB CHARTER, as passed by the Senate, has bcou printed, but as It has been discovered that there are a few printers' errors in It it will not be sent to the Assembly till to-morrow aiternoon, or on Wednesday. There are really no new developments concerning the way the l.ower House felt about the Senate amend ments. It is certain that the bill can never pass the House in its present shape, and thai, a con ference committee will have to be resorted to. It is equallv certain that the conference committee of the House will Insist upon (ireen being stricken out ol the bill. In this they will be backed up by a large majority ef the Assembly, so that if the Senate dues not feel like giving way to the stand the Assembly intends to take It will either have to choose between A GOOD CHARTER, WITH GRRBN OUT OF IT, or no charter at all. It Is generally believed that the Senate will not dare to take the responsibility ol defeating the bill altogether, simply to graliry the ambition of a single individual in New \ork city. O'DONOVAN BOBS A CLAIMS A SEAT. In the senate the President presented the follow ing communication from O'Douovan Rossa:? Nkw Youk, April 11, 1H73. To TIIK rilKHIDUNT Of TIIK SkNATPV ? IIonorki) Sis? Tho Fourth Senatorial district is imrep resented in the Senate, l-unt year I claimed the sent ami Mr. William M. Tweed'* lawyer resisted that r claim. Mr. Tweed an.l Ills lawyer have now with drawn (romthat position, anil I respectfully submit that the august body over which you worthily preside will tuko in v memorial into con sfdo ration. I contcitod the representation ol the district at the time when it was pub licly stated thai no mas could be tfot to run against Mr Tweed whom be could not buy out. I made inv humble effort to arrest the tide ol Tammany corruption, which alone ought to entitle me to Justice, it not tavor. at vour hands. My paper, laid beiore you by Mr. Davenport, clearly demonstrated that more votes were cast lor mo than lor Mr. Tweed ; and when this gen Human has cesaed to dispute mv right to the scat 1 trust the Senate will take that action which is consistent with its dignity and with Its desire to do Jus tice to the humblest Individual. I have an honorable am bition to take the seat My constituents urue me to anneal to von Cor it, and l resnectfully solicit the decisive action of the honorable Senators on the question ere their labor# come to a close. 1 have the honor to remaln^our gamble fflsnt. The communication was reierred to the Commit tee on Privileges and Flections. A UUKSTION FOK THK NOVKMBER KLKCTION. A bill was introduced by Mr. J. Wood providing for submitting to (he cleetors of this State at the general election to be lield next November the question whether the ofllcers or Chlel and As sociate Judges or the Court or Appeals or Justices or the Supreme Court, or the Judges ol the Superior mid the Court of Common Pleas In the city ol New York, of the Judge of the Superior Court, Buffalo; of the City Court., Brooklyn, and of the county Judges In several counties, shall be hereafter illled by appointment, pursuant to section 17, article 16, of the constitution. THE CANAL FtTJDINO BII.L. The netlon of commercial bodies in New York, and petitions rrom ail parts or the State, have called attention to the low-toll, free canal policy recommended by ihe republican State Convention and endorsed bv Governor Dix in his message. Kx Congressmnn Israel T. Hatch Is here pressing his canal views on the Legislature, and insisting upon the observance oi the constitutional requirements bv the Canal Board and Comptroller, which render it necessarv to pav the debt, tax the people lor the money orYuud the debt. The latter policy is the course advocated by Governor Dtx and Mr. Hatch. Comptroller Hopkins hesitates In his cholee and is in a dilemma He has to pity about, live mil lions this .Summer, and has no minis. He would probably resort to the plmi or taking tne money iron! some unauthorized source und escaping tne necessity or extra taxation, but. the strict constructionists are at nis heels anil threaten injunctions should he attempt this mode of escape. The cnnal ring are urging this bridging over policy. In order that they may still have a placer to deplete; but it is not likely to prevail, and the chances appear to be thai the whole ten million canal debt will be funned in forty years bonds, thus lilting the present oppres sive welgiit rrom Ihe State canals and Insuring tho lowest rates or tolls, and In breadstuU's probably free navigation. ART MATTERS. Mint. Hazard? Important Sale To-Mor? row. Mme. Hazard's sale, respecting which ho much has been .said ami so much is expected, will take place to-morrow afternoon anil evening, at her rooms, 60 Union place, at the northeast corner of Seventeenth street and Fourth avenue. Our remarks have mainly relerence lo the evening's sale, consisting, as it does, of works of art almost exclusively. The most valuable and Interesting effects arc Uie statuary, the work of Mme. Hazard's own hands. To these we have referred, not i oftener than their merit demands, bnt with suffi cient fr-qurncy to prevent the art lover forgetting where they were to be found and what were their chfef characteristics. The best fascinations of Mme. Hazard's chisel are expressed in them, and they indicate at once deep feeling, high aspiration, Innate refinement, a complete mastery of technical details, and broad sympathy with whatever, In moral grandeur and beauty, Is susceptible of expression in art. Hut there are numerous adscilttUiu* points of interest in the count less souvenirs, antiquities, articles of vertn, anil assortments of jewelry and laces with which the cases in Mme. Hazard's apartments are re plenished. We are afraid that tew New Vork ladies possess sufficient moral nobility to ad mire a statue of "Hope,'' however finely executed, when Venetian, Brussels and Irish lace appeal to > them: and we have vet to meet the feminine bar gainer who will not turn away from statuettes Found at Pompeii to worship au ermine paletot or to offer secret incense before an embroidered handkerchief. Not to press too closely iionie a truth i winch might disconcert our fair readers, It is In I place to say that tue sale Mine. Hazard promises I lor to-morrow evening unites, to a greater extent ! than almost any ot her sale of the kind offered In j this city during the past, Winter, those qualifies winch are attractive to tue at t lov r, the antiqua rian and the fastidious appreclator of laces and jewels. _ Academy of Design? litre pt ion Lait Night. The forty-eighth annual exhibition of the National Academy of Design opened last evening with a reception and a "private view,'" which were us brilliant as over three hundred carefully se lected pictures could make them, with the assist ance of newly-arranged lights, excellent music by Tliomaa, and the color and perfume of rare and abuudunt flowers. To be exact, the number of contributions, excluding a few busts of not much Importance, is ;?7, and the number or artists rep resented 217. Of these about thirty are ladies, and among the feminine contributors observable the names of Charlotte Demlng, Kate L. Whlton, Miss M. P. Chapin, Eliza Greatorex, Mrs. F.. M. L. Rice, Emma Sea ire, Abby C. Williams, Mrs. M. W. Linsley, Caro line May, Marlon R. Beers, Mrs. E. Callender, Mrs. ('. B. Cowan, Fanny Eliott, A. Inez Ludlow, Mrs. H. A. I.oap, Miss A. M. Lee, Sara B.

Oakes, Mary Kollock and Mrs. E. C. Hughes. The contributing artists were rar rrom being limited to New Vork. Boston, Balti more, Philadelphia, Han Francisco, Pittsburg, Paris, Rome, London, Florence sent in their quota; and among smaller places representatives were had rrom Providence, Brooklyn, Hastings, pelharn, Westchester county, Morrlsanla, Cavuga Falls, i%fw cut* MUfttKtumtu Hen Ucdjuru. mu ford, Hudson, New Haven, Tottenvllle, Staten Island, New Kochclle, Tort Jar vis, Perth Am boy, Newark Valley and Poughkecpsio. No one attends a reception at the Academy of Design for the purpose or criticism. An amiable babbie sets in and the brook of fash Ion purls through the valley of urt with a music all It* own. We believe that tlte only dead artist represented is the lato Mr. Kensett, who, having died since the taut annual exhibition, a aeieotlon of his works ap propriately finds place here. These range from No. 124 to No. 128, inclusive, and consist or "Mount Washington? Keene Flats:'* "Italy," a large, sweet, sunny, tender picture; "Newport," "Valley Hcene" and "Bass Hocks, Newport, alter a Southwest Gale." Mr. T.

AMUSEMENTS. ?'Under the Gaslight" at the Grand Opera House. A largo audience greeted the reproduction of "Under the Gaslight" at the Grand opera House last night. It i.s unnecessary to discuss over again the merits of the piece, this having been done with sufficient thoroughness at tne time ol' its first pro duction at what is now the Fifth Avenue Theatre In Broadway. One thing, at least, was illus trated by its performance last night? namely, that a successful local drama does not soon lose Its hold upon the New York public. The ad vantage of this play is that it is purely local, both iu scenery and in action, and is not marred by in congruities springing from the following of a foreign model. To this advantage perhaps it owes its vitality. The piece is well set at tHe Grand Opera Iiause, and ("he famous railroad effect is ex ceedingly well done, so well none, indeed, last night that Miss Gary fainted on the stage as the curtain tell upon the rescue of Snorkoy. The young lady had never seeu the piece, and, actress us she is, she was overcome by the realism of the rushing railroad, train. Some of the acting, too, is unusually excellent. Mrs. John Wood us Peachblossom Is in an element exactly salted to Iter genius, and she seems to revel in the character as if it were a joyful reality. She shows iu the part all the exquisiteness of bur lesque to people who do not know what wretched ness is, :ind ail the degradation of poverty as it Is exhibited by -a girl wuo was never brought up." Miss Mary Gary plays Laura Gourtiand with neat ness and skill, but fails short of the emo tional power or which the part is capable. Mr. Leuioyne's llyke Is a very strong character, and excellent in their way ure the Counsellor Kowe of Mr. Meade, the Bermudas of Mr. Burnett, the Sam of Mr. F. Chapman, the Old Judas of Mrs. Yeamans aud the Peanuts of little Jennie Yeamans. Mr. Henry Crisp deserves a word 01 strong praise for an excellent interpretation of Snorkev, the one-arined soldier messenger. In parts w 1 1* li do not require much vigorous acting, but whi-Ai allow tenderness and simplicity, he st.ews luni.-?kl possessed of great merits. Mr. J. W. Jennings played the Signal Man at Shrewsbury Bend very nicely, and the piece passed oil with much Mat. Nihlo't? Tlie Vokei Family. A hearty welcome was given the Vokes family at Nibio's last evening, upon the occasion of their first appearance sluce their return irom Kurope. The programme of entertulnmeut vouchsafed in return is already quite familiar to the public from having been made so during a long and prosperous run last season, and its successful repetition for the ensuing two weeks is insured from the guarantee of last evening's performance. The Vokes lamlly's specialty, "The Belles of the Kitchen." written aud adapted lor their exclusive enactment, belongs to the class of amusements known as "Varieties"? much or little as the word may comprehend? and as such finds admirers and patrons among both those who come down from the standard drama and those who go up from the spice aud sensation ol east side theatricals. The several members of the family, or company, have lost nothing of their power to please during their short absence abroad. ()u the contrary, many touches here and there in the incidents of the inu inaking medley of concert, burlesque and ballet show signs of a revlsioual effort to add to the at tractive features of the entertainment. The per formance was preceded by the pretty little comedy of "Orange Blossoms." Union Square Theatre? "Frou Frou." Miss Agnes Ethel played the title rOle in this French play, adapted for our stage by Mr. Augustln Duly, for the first tirno this season at the Union Square Theatre last night. Three years ago It saved the Filth Avenue Theatre, then In Its com parative Infancy, from utter dissolution. "Frou Frou" was the first play that brought the Fifth Avenue Theatre up to the standard of pop ular as well as artistic success it enjoys at present. The talent and foresight of the mauatrer must be regarded us the mainspring 01 the prosperity of the theatre, but in "Frou-Frou" the turning point of success must always be considered. The principal rOlrti of the play were filled at the Union Square as on the occasion of the first represen tation in this city. Agues Ethel played the title r<Vr w ith all that emotional power and teuderuess which have made her stage representations so popular. Harkins and Parkes represented their old parts without any diminution of effect. Miss Griswold was but a poor substitute lor Miss New- i ton. La llaronne was very mncli Inferior in the hands of Miss Mestayer to the representation of Mrs. Gilbert, and the other characters were about equal to the original. Take the play as a popular success there is very little difference In the repre sentation of it at the Uniou Square Theatre lust night and its first production at the Fifth Avenue Theatre. Musical and Dramatic Notes. Mr. Dominlck Murray, a very clever and popular actor, commenced an engagement last evening at Wood's Museum, in the pla> of "The Gambler's Crime; or, The Murder on the Hudson." Mr. Murray, In the part of an Irishman, keeps the house in constant uproar by his delineation of supposed Irish dialect and eccentricities. The Theatre Comiquc was crowded last night. "Standing room only" were the words that greeted the ears of those who came but a few minutes after eight. The performance was amusing, and embraced "Robert Macalre," "A Trip to the Moon" and "The Race, or, the Mysteries or the Turf." The most novel feature of the entertainment was the bayonet "duel" of Mr. Charles and Miss Carrie Austin, which opened In a sanguinary manner but very properly terminated in a somersault. The Athcneum is enjoying a prosperous week. The engagement of the Kaufretta troupe, the pan toinlmlsts, has proved sucecssful. M. Alex. Zanfretta Is very airlie, and, at times, laughable, but be makes up his face as to give It the apnearance of a frightful mask ??Pluto" kept tlTe audience in convulsions of laughter, and, to quote the modest language of the programmo, "crowded and de liguieu audicacc* attest tUo uouuiauu of tuia. famous temple of amusement, wtitch may be likened uuto a mental garden of Eden" With Miss Liza Weber and others of her school this Is perhaps to be expected, but when managers speak ho well of themselves they save other people a great deal of trouble. On Wednesday afternoon last two score people were somewhat startled by the discovery of a tragic actress in lime, de Uueroel, a lady as well known In society as on the operatic stage. Having studied with Miss Fanny Morant for three months, Mme. de Guerbel, being earnestly solicited by friends, gave a private rehearsal at Bryant's opera House, which was kindly placed at her disposition by the genial manager. Selecting scenes from the "Hunchback" and "Macbeth," the lady won golden opinions from critics not given to promiscuous praise. Grace, ease, iutensity and beauty are Mme. de Guerbel's natural gilts, and it needs but practice to make their , possessor such an artist as the stage sadly needs at the present raoroeit. We understand that it la the lady's intention to sail for Europe, with a view to studying In Paris previous to ap pearing in England. We heartily wish her "god speed," and do not doubt that she will fulill the sanguine expectations of her friends. THE M2TH0D1ST PREACHERS* This body of ministers met yesterday In the Mis sion House. I)r. 8. D. Brown presided. The exer cises were of a devotional character mainly, but by invitation Hev. Dr. Itust, Secretary of the Freed mcn's Aid Society, addressed the meeting upon the Interests of that cause, which, he believes, has no superior in importance among the institutions of the Church. From among thu freedmeu of America are to coine the missionaries who are to carry the Gospel to all the dark races of the earth, and at least two out of the four millions of emiyicipated slaves in the south look to the Methodist Church to give them an education and to prepare them for the higher duties 01 citizenship and service in the ministry of the uespei. And this work must be done mainly by the Methodists of the North. He. therefore, asked his brethren not to forget, to take up an unuual collection in their respective charges for this society. Dr. Ives. ?lJtVulmrn, N. Y., also made a few re marks touching tire religious revivals in his dis trict during the past Winter. The convictions and conversions were of the eld-fashioned Methodist style that wont need doing over again next Win ter. Kev. W. C. Steele gave a brief account of the progress of BKEKMAN HILL METHODIST EPISCOPAL CIItTRCH, whicti was to be fully, and was partially, dedicated on Sunday. But as $1,S00 oi the $13,000 indebted ness remained unprovided for, the dedicatory ser vices will l>e completed next Sabbath, when it is hoped to have the debt entirely wiped out. Bev. Thomas Guard, of Baltimore, preached in tlie morning, Dr. Ives in the alternoon and Bishop Foster In the evening. Bev. Mr. Chapin, Secretary of the American branch ol the Evangelical Alliance, addressed the meeting also upon the wants of that organization, whose representatives Irom all parts of the world arc to convene hi this city between the 2d and 12th of October next. Their travelling expenses and entertainment will cost about $ao,ooo, about $10,000 of which are already in the treasury, and he sought the co-operation ol ttie ministers in rais ing the balance by collections or otherwise. On motion ot Dr. llidgaway, a committee of three was appointed to corner with Mr. Chapin 011 this sub ject. OFFICERS POK 1873-74. Rev. Mr. Buckley reported for the Nominating Committee the following oltlcers of the meeting lor the current year:? President, Bev. J. li. Murwin, P. E. New York district, New York Eastern Con lerence ; Vice Presidents, Bevs. L. B. Dunn and A. D. VaU; Secretary, B?v. F. P. Tower; Committee on Topics, Bevs. J. F. Hurst, M. S. Terry and T. fl. Burch. These gentlemen were unanimously elected. Mr. Buckley called attention to the murder of Kev. Dr. Thomas, of San Francisco, by the Modocs, and asked lor a committee or two to prepare a suitable uilnute on his death. Bev. Mr. French would include General Canby also, whose wife, and, ho believed, himself also, were members of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Rev. Drs. Ilnckley, lteid and French were appointed such committee. The topic lor next meeting was left open. THE fiOSPEL AT AUCTION. A fashionable congregation gathered Inst night I in that Tearfully and wonderfully constructed Church of the Disciples, in Madison avenue aud" Forty-fifth street. The ediQce was brilliantly lighted up, the people occupicd the pews, hut, instead of the Rev. G. II. llepworth delivering the Lord's messoge freely and ibII.v from the platform, the auctioneer and his assistant occupied the sacred place and sold to the highest bidder the privilege of hearing the Gospel proclaimed by Mr. Hepworth from certain parts of the building. At first the bidding was spirited, tmt as soon as the purchasers began to feel each other's pulse financially they did not manifest so much enthu siasm. The circle between the platform and the first circular aisle, containing flltv-four pews, valued in the aggregate at $47,100, and varying In Diice from $5<x> to $1,200 per new, was first put up, or the choice of pews was offered, the terms being a 1 rental of twelve per cent of the valuation, besides the premium. Nine pews In tills circle were bought off at premiums ranging from $loo to $1,060. Mr. Anthony paid $1,050 premium for No. 247, valued at $1,200, and $1,000 each for Nos, 24fi, 110 and 111. Mr. Palmer paid jtioo premium for No. 109, valued at $1,000, and Mr. W. L. Conklin bought No. I0o, right opposite and of the same value, at par. Mr. Kay nought No. 287, valued at $l,ooo, for $200 premium, and Mr. Herrick took Its companion, valued at $soo, at a corresponding premium. Outside this charmed circle the purchases were more numerous and the premiums much less per pew. Jmlge Hilton took Nos. 204, 241, valued at $*>5o each, for $25; 2ftt, 2ttii, same value, at $5u, and 263, 207, valued at $500 each, at $45 premium, aud 265, 206 at t:i5, and 9rt, fi.'! for $55. Mj\ Perkins took Nos. 203, 242, valued at $500 each, at $50; Mr. W. O. Wheeler paid $200 premium for No. 202, valued at $500 also, while Mr. Sniffer got 238, valued at $?oo, for $100 premium, and 206, opposite, same value, for $175. The blading began to wane and the auctioneer grew desperate and called for premiums of "one'dollar, or fifty cents, or anything." l>r. Ranney accommodated him by taking 303, 322, . valued at $500 each, at $1, and 302, 323 at $10 premium" each. A few were then bid off at par, when a lull came upon the auc tioneer and the people, and the selling was laid aside and the renting taken up. This reproduced something oi the original enthusiasm and several ' were bidden off in the choicest parts of the church at a premium of $20 to $5, subject to a rental of eighteen per cent of the valuation per iinnum and the trustees reserving the right to sell ir they can at any time, giving the renter the first right, but his failure, within tltteen days after being notified to tnat effect, releases them, and they can return his rent or a proper proportion thereof. About sixty pews were rented and sold np to half-past nine P. M., when the Hekai.d reporter left, the premiums aggregating over six thousand dollars. The rental will be continued on other evenings. DEDICATION OF A GERMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. The new frame church edifice recently erected at the Intersection of Hamburg avenue and Jefferson street, Williamsburg, for the worship of the Ger man Catholics of that section of Brooklyn, was dedicated yesterday (Easter Monday) by the Right Kev. Bishop l-eughlln. The Bishop was as sisted in the dedicatory services by Vicar General Turner, Fathers Sylvester, Mnlone. Hauptmann, lluber, May, Arnold, Amman, Ziuimer, Keller and Raocr. The unpretentious edifice (50 by 80 feet) could not accommodate all the religious societies, accompanied by bands of music and carrying banners, that marched in procession to it through the principal streets. It will be known as the Church of St. Leonard of Prague, and its altar piece will be a portrait of that saint. The congregation will be under the pastoral charge oi the Rev. Father Ruber, son ef the ex Aldertnan of the Sixteenth ward of that name. At the conclusion of the religious exercises a salute was fired by the Guard connected Willi the Church of the Holy Trinity, where Father Kaber has been an assisting priest since his ordination.

BRAZIL. Republican Demonstration in Celebratioi ? of Amadeus' Abdication of tbe Spanish Crown. Police Interference Unable to Suppress Demo cratic Sentiment? Monarchism Pleading IU Canse Through Agents of the Throne? A Spanish Orator Beceives a Spicy Sa lute?A JuYenile Negro Seeking to Enlighten the Municipality Mob Law for a Moment Rio Janktro, March 7, 1373. The great event or the fortnight has been the Republican celebration and its consoquences. When news arrived here, on the 28th of February, of the abdication of King Amadous, in Madrid, ths republicans determined to solemnize the .revival ol the Spanish Republic with a demonstration of the rejoicing of the Brazilian republicans. The police authorities declined to allow a procession through the city streets, but threw no obstacle in the way of a jollification at the office of the IfcpuMica. Ac cordingly, by nightfall, the RepuOlica olllcc was in gala costume, with dags and Illumination. Some 200 little colored lamps, fixed upon the front, spelled the thrilling words, MVlva a Repub Ilea." and a transparency, bearing the portraiture of Castelar, the great tepublican orator or Spain, was placed in the centre or honor, its Irani* wreathed with the flags of the United States, Spain and France, and over it floating the flag of the em bryo Republic of Brazil, consisting of three stripes, green outside and yellow in the middle, and guilt' less of the arms of monarchy. MONARCHICAL EFFORT IN REPLY. The agents or monarchy, on the other hand, had not been Idle : the adjoining squares were ooou pled with troops and pickets or cavalry patrolled the part or Kua do Ouvidor m which the KtfiruMUs* Qitice is situated, aud were saluted ironi it wilh?tiie stirring strains or the "Marseillaise," and with cries of "Viva a Republics*. " However, Senhor Bocayuva, the chlel editor ol the Republica, requested the with drawal or the patrol, as he and lus lrlends wished to deliver suitable orations to the crowds which had assembled. Thin request being acted on Senhor Bocayuva mounted a chair and spoke elo quently, as usual, but with consideration lor the weaknesses of the uucouverted. This show of tact was not imitated by two Spanish orators who suc ceeded him, and whose voices were drowned in groans and exclamations trom a portion ol the crowd. Evldeutly there was a counter party to the republican one, and stones, aided by potatoes, sausages and bottles lrom a neighboring store, began soon to play marl havoc with the illumina tions and the windows. DKMOCRACY IN THE OUST. Finally, with a crash, the transparency rell to the ground aud was trampled and dauced on by the e litre r mob. The rage of the mob was not sattsfled and turpentine was thrown upon the signboard. LXUUT FROM A 1)AKK SOURCE. A young scamp ol a nigger climbed up a gasplpe and tried, but vainly, to ignite it with a match. Failing in their eirorts In tins direction all turned their attention to the upper windows, and to roar lug "Down with the republican flag!" LAW AMI ORDKR. By this time the police authorities jJeemed It time to appear upon the scene and t? try to soothe the disorder. Two magistrates, with scarfe or of-, flee across their chests, summoned the garrison to a parley; but the hat of one instantly collapsed under a bottle still redolent of the vanished beer, and the gallant Lieutenant Colonel no longer snorted like the war horse lor the rray. In ract he retired upon his base In a masterly manner, and was seen no more. The parley was ac corded, but to the summons in the name ol the law to hiwil down his flag Bocayuva Indignantly replied that never would be drag down the Has; of liberty at the behest of tne minion or despotism. The minion insisted. Boca yuva sought to temporize and was lost. He de manded a written summons. It was retased, and at last, with grating teeth and tear-starting eyes, lie seized the halyards and slowly lowered the flag amid the groans' or his sympathizing friends and the Jeers ol the triumphant monarchists. Satiated with their triumph, the mob was then readily dis persed, and guards were placed at both ends to prevent, a reassembly in the street. PRESS INDIGNATION. Next morning the Xrpublica announced that it had suspended? that it could not continue to 1MB In a country where such outrage* as those or the preceding night were com mitted with impunity: but it has hitherto Issued a daily bulletin oi the "sloshing around" nature. Doubtless the suspension ol tne organ was ad visable on pecuniary urrounds, lor it has always been a losing speculation; but the subscribers who had paid their $7 .r>o in advance are not so satis lied with the pretext. FIRST RESULT. The result or Jhis aiiair has not iieen advan tageous to the spread of republicanism here, for the rervor o the republican demonstration, and especially the hoisting or the flag or a Brazilian Republic, has given great offence even to most moderate monarchists, and was, in ract. a political blunder at this time. It has strengthened the bauds or monarchy, and measures or repression would bo acquiesced In now which a short time before would have been denounced as attempts against the liberty of the subject. But the government shows no sign of intention to take further notice of the matter. Tne republicans of Brazil can liurdly yet be considered in the light or a political party in the country. They include in their ranks a body or men or the highest talent. In their generality Free Masons, who are working quietly to emanci pate the nation from ignorance and priestly rule; but the great matorlty are inexperienced young men and students, who feed themselves upon the misty ravjngs of the Victor Huko school, and know no more ol the workings or the United States Rfr public than a cuckoo does of its grandmother. YELLOW FEVER IN BRAZIL. Progress and Spread of the Disease? Con* ?cqu^nces In the Ports of Commerce. Rio Janiero, March 7, 1873. I wish I could say that yellow fever is on the decline. Unfortunately It is on the increase, although no emigrants now reed It, and the amount ol' shipping In port is largely diminished. It is, la ract, spreading to all parts of the tow n, and now is falling severely upon the natives or the country as well as on the resident foreigners. One or the deputies has lost by it three of his rour children, and the young wire, only seventeen, of the new. Minister or Agriculture has just succumbed. The daily mortality (turn yellow revcr ranges from forty to fifty. To the south of Rio the only port In which It exists is Santos, a town situated In a mangue swamp, where Its ravages are rather severe com paratively. To the north it is present in the port of Bahla; severely at Pernambuco aed Aracajo, and the last dates state It had showed itself at Par chy l?a. From the River Plate we hear of no more cases at Montevideo. "WHf 9EN DON'T lAfcftT." Lecture by the Rev. Henry Morgan Last Evening in the Seventh Presbyterian Church. The Rev. Mr. Morgan, of Boston, gave his ninth and last lectnre In this city at the Seventh Presby terian church, last evening, for the benefit or the Young Men's Christian Association. His course of lectures in New York has been quite a success, and has netted a large sum or money ror paying the debt on the Morgan chapel In Boston. Mr. Morgau last evening spoke upon the question or "Why Men Don't Marry," ror which he gave eight reasons, as follows : ? First, because they could not get the woman whom they wanted? the* looked too nigh for beauty, talent and perrection which was beyond their reach: second, because they were cowards? they dared not "race the music," aud quaked At the lightning flashes or a ralr maiden's eye; third, because they were skeptical? they had no faith in a woman's constancy, and believed her weak and frail ; fourth, because they were selfish and stingy and did not think that they could support wives; fifth, because women or genius were not always good house wives (the reverend gentleman advised his male auditors not to marry geniuses) ; sixth, because or man's own extravagance? many of our young men spent their Incomes foolishly, and of course could not afford to marry; seventh, be cause they were afraid of divorce, which was made by the laws too easy? free love was poisoning the system of marriage: eighth, because of woman's extravagance? it costs as much to launch a woman on the sea of wvdded life in these times as it would to fit out a small schooner. As to sails, cordage, pennants and streamers, the difference, he opined, was in favor of tne schooner. As to her outfit, she was to be freighted with bonnets, veils, necklaces, ear rings, pins, chains, bracelets, rings, ruflles, bows, Sands, buttons, loops, folds, pip ings, pleats, silks, muslins, laces, fans, boots, slippers, parasols, collars, cuifs, nets, chignons, waterfalls, rats, mice, braids, frizzles, switches, puffs, curls, panier, tonrnure, Grecian bend. (Laughter.) what a cargo was this for such a small vessel ! Few are the underwriters who take the "risk" In such acraft. And fewwero the men who would marry this Dolly Varden walk ing advertisement. The lecturer was frequently applauded during his address. This was Ills last appearance in New York for the present, lie leaves to-day ror Prevalence, where he will continue tne prwwUoa yf m muwwa.
