The Upper House or the Prussian Diet to-day passed the bill lor the control of the clergy. THE CHURCH AND CLERGY CONTROL BILL AND ITS CHIEF CLAUSES. The Minister of Worship of Prussia, Dr. Falk, presented three bills to the national Legtalatare In the month of January last making provision for a State control of the churches of alt denominations. These different drafts of bills have, after debate, been amended and consolidated Into the one which has just been passed by the Upper Heuse of the Parliament. Its object Is to regulate the prepara tory training and education of the clergy, and to give to the state powers of supervision over cleri cal appointments. It applies to both the State recognized religions ? to the Protestant or evan gelical equally with the Reman Catholic Church? and its main objects, as set forth, are to pro tect the lreedoin of individual persons; to insure the training of a German national in contradistinction from an Ultramontane clergy; and, lastly, to guard the rights and independence of the clergy themselves as against their ecclesias tical superiors. The churches have hitherto, to a large extent, educated their own clergy. In the case 01 the Roman Catholics special seminaries have been instituted for the education of those destined for the priesthofld from their youth up wards. All institutions ol the kind now in exist ence are to be placed under rigorous State inspec tion, while It Is torbidden to open any new ones. The State thus takes into its own hands the direct supervision of the education of the clergy. Candi dates for the priesthood will be required to attend the State jrymnasla and universities, so that a por tion of their training may be received among the the laity. Before they c.?n enter the clcrlcal ranks they must pass certain State examinations to test their eltlciency. These examinations are in philosophy, history, German literature and the classical languages. The State also claims a right ol supervision over clerical appointments, and limits, by stringent conditions, the right of dis missal on the part of ecclesiastical superiors of the clergy. In order to prevent the abuse of the J towers of the ecclesiastical superiors Ones ranging rom 2i)o t?i l,ooo thalers are imposed upon making appointments, which may be unconditionally re voked.

An Exciting Scene Over a Prisoner. The alleged bond robber, C. W. Hampton, now held at the Tombs as a fugitive rrom justice, was sent before Judge liarrett, in Chambers of supreme Conrt, in custody ot ?ue of the keepers of the City Prison on a writ ot habeas corpus. Jupgo Barrett declined to have anything to do with the ease and referred it to the Justice holding the Court or Over ami Terminer. Special Deputy Mieriffs Krb and Cale, who were detailed to look alter the prisoner by Mr. Jmlsou Jar vis, entered the Court just as tue Justice dismissed the prisoner. They held a requisition irom Governor Dix, granted on request of He Governor ol Pennsyl vania. Understanding tnat the writ had been dis missed and Hampton discharged, they arrested him as soon as he had got luto the street from the Court. A number of roughs who wcrffln the vicinity crowded round the oillcers ami attempted to in timidate them. The prison keeper explained to the Deputy Sheriffs the exact condition of affairs, aud the latter at onco re tired and allowed the keeper to return his prisoner to the Tombs. Hamilton Is wanted by the authorities of Pennsylvania for extensive rob beries supposed to have !>een committed by him, and Mr. Judson Jar via helds the papers necessary to send him there as soon as the Intricate meshes by which he Is surrounded are in some way opened.

A Sublime Lodge of Sorrow assembled last night at the Brooklyn Academy of Music under tiie aus pices of Aurora Grata Lodge of Perfection, An cient and Accepted Rite. The building was filled in all parts by members of the fraternity and their families, who watched the solemn pro ceedings with deep interest. A catafalque was placed npon the stage, the casket being covered with black velvet, and elaborately silver mounted. In front of this was the altar, on which rested the Bible and other in signia. . At eight o'clock there was an overture by the orchestra, under the directorship of Harrison Mil lard. This was followed by a march-funerbrc, during which the following grand ofllcers A Baid rlok. according to their station, entered Charles T.

Barli'i Conrerto Iter Three Pianos? A New Introduction to "Taanhaaeer." The audience at Steinway Hall last evening was the largest that haa been assembled during the en tire festival. Besides the presence of the orchestra and solos bj Rubinstein, wieniawskl and two lady vocalists? unfailing attractions In themselves? theuT'Was the additional novelty of the perform ance (the* we believe, In this country) of Bach's concerto* D roInor f?r '*nree P,ano8" Bach wrote two concerto^ ^ T *hree piano?*- ?"'I 9Q* in question Is consider*,";* fhe more Interesting fta ft was a favorite with the old "King of Fugue," who used to pl&y it with his sous. Philip Emmanuel and John Christian. It lias an accompaniment of stnug instruments, which take up the subjects at times when they are relinquished by the pianos. The wonderful and never-to-be-cqualled .^fertility or ideas in the treatment of a subject which has made the uame of Bach imperishable could sea reely be shown under more favorable circumstances. Modern audiences incline more to sensationalism and triviality In music than to the sturdy, honest utterances of the kappelmeister of Fred erick the Great. But the spirit, unanimity and promptness with wblch Messrs. Rubinstein, Mills and Mason responded to each other; the vividness and correetucss of every theme as it passed under their hands, and the rich yet deli cately shaded coloring thrown over their -per formance by the inimitable string orchestra were lully appreciated by the audience, who broke lorth into rapturous demonstrations of delight. The quaint old movement, AUa SioUiana, in which the theme becomes chameleon-like in its multitude of changes, brought the concerto to an end, and it must have been an ear of extraordinary delicacy of perception that could detect a flaw in the per lormance. This is high praise, considering the gos samer boindary that in a work of this kind divides order and perfection from chaos. A single mistake on the part of any of the performers would act like a broken rail beneath a train of cars. The composer has wltten one concerto for four pianos, with string orchestra; that alone remains for the public of New York to hear. Although Bach can not be recommended as steady diet lor musicians or the public, yet his occasional appearance on concert programmes cannot fail to nave a healthy effect. A mind that could bring a melody through thirty variations and enrich a fugue subject with eight obligato parts deserves the respect of every lover of music before any of the new-fangled prophets who wish to create a commune in the domain of art. The orchestral selections consisted of Gluck's "Iphigenla in Aulis'' overture; Adagio "Prome theus," with 'cello obligato, Beethoven; Overture to "William Tell," Rossini, and Introduction and Bacchanale, 'Tnnnhttuser," Wagner. The last mentioned was the novelty of the occasion. Re taining some of the themes which may be found in the Ola overture and the song Of t he sirens, the composer, in this new work, lias adopted an en tirely different treatment of these saoieots. The Instrumentation in many of the passages Is exceed ingly rich and ell'ective, and in others exceedingly puerile and barren. Part of the "Bac chanale" Kivcs a fair idea of cliao*, and from the lending violins down to the castanets andpop-gnns the movement only excites ridicule. The concluding bars are very beautiful, and unexpectedly so alter such a stonn. Rubin stein played Weber's sonata in A flat, with some what less of his accustomed lire and finish, attrib uteable, undoubtedly, to the severe physical latlguc ho has undergone in travelling lor the last few days. The beauty of the subjects in Weber's piano works and the richness of the coloring given to them make considerable demands upon the powers of an artist. Wieniawskl appeared in an Adagio by Rubinstein and one of his own works, "Scherzo Tarantella." lie was In unusual good spirits, for his plaving was even bettor than we can remember on any previous occasion. He took the "Tarantella" at 'such a fearful ti-mpo that there was a rear he might not be able to carry it through without a break, but such a fear was found to be groundless. His phrasing and expression, even in the most rapid movements, are finished ami intelligible, and in cantatAto parts, like Rubinstein's "Adagio," the volume and warmth of his tone cannot be excelled. Mrs. II. M. Smith, a Boston soprano, who lias been lately secured lor the choir or Christ church in this city, sang an aria, "Gratias Agimus," by Guglielni. The fecundity or ideas which characterised this old maestro or St. Peter's, took shape rather In opera than In church music. No one could be led to believe that the musie or "Gratias Agimus" was not originally intended for the footlights. Many of the passages were strangely like an aria from "La Olemenza fll Tito," the only difference being that instead of the clarionet there was a flute obligato, exquisitely pla.vrd by Mr. En gene Wiener. Mrs. Smith has a light, agreeable voice, and uses it with discretion and taste. Her roulades and trills, if not faultless, had an air of finish and ease. The festival will conclude to-day with the most important and attractive performances of the week. The following programme is announced ior the arternoon concert Overture, Hdolio Beethoven Thomas' Orcliestia. Aria, I am a Roamer, "don and niranger". .Mendelssohn Mr Myron W. Whitney.

In the evening the great feature will be the im mortal symphonv in D minor, No. 9, Beethoven* The orchestra will be strengthened lor the occa sion to the number of loo, and the Boston Chora' Society will be heard in Schiller's "Hymn to Joy' in the last movement. The other numbers of the bill are Schubert's unfinished symphony, "found an Alarm." from "Judas Maccabeus," aud Bach's Suite in D, No. 3. Robinson Ilall? Mi sa Anna Simon's Con cert. This lady, who possesses a light, pleas ing soprano voice, with some bird-like tones In the upper notes, gave an interesting concert last evening at the pretty little hall in Sixteenth street. She was assisted by Messrs. Damrosch, violin; Bergner, cello, and Von Inten, piano, who played a long and trying terzetto In B flat by Beethoven and some instru mental solos. Mr. Remmertz, whose fine barytone voice is always welcome in the concert hall, was set down tor the well-worn "Infolice" or "Ernani," and Mrs. 0. F. liliiin sang the charming song by Vllanova, entitled "Senza Speme." It would be diillcult to match this lady's voice on the American boards for power, sympathetic quality and finish of execution. She has not what might be termed a pure contralto voice, for the tipper notes are decidedly of the mezzo-soprano order; but it is even and equally effective throughout its entire range, and she has evidently been trained In the best schools of music. The song itself, one of the most descriptive of the favorite pianist's works, gave Mrs. Blfnn ample opportunity for dra matic expression, ol which she availed herself like a true artist. The concert did not commence at the hour designated, and some changes were made in the programme. Mnalral and Dramatic Note*. Vlenxtemps, the violinist, is playing at Bordeaux with great applause. Mile. M?rlaCCM appears at the Olympic Theatre next week In a number of chiirSCJ-cr dances, The 185t.h anniversary of the first openltip of the Theatre Francais, founded in 1688, has just been celebrated. Somebody remarks that Benjamin Franklin won distinction as the original Poor Richard, though he could not have been by any meaDfl bo poor a Richard as McKoan liuchanau used to be. The posthumous opera of Balfe, "11 Talismano," founded on Sir Walter Scott's novel, which is to be produced by Mr. Mapleson In the approaching opera season, with Mme. Christine Nilsson in the part of Edith Plantagenet, will probably be the best and most enduring proof of the powers of that lamented composer. Mr. H. L. Hateman will be in this city In a few week* to close negotiations for the production of Mr. Wills' "Charles I.," which has Just been with drawn from the Lyceum, London, after a very suc cessful run. ? The honors of the piece were won by Mr. Henry Irvlnir and Miss Isabel, Mr. Bateman's younger daughter, who have also won gnat applause in "Fugcne Aram,"' another play by Mr. Wills just produced.

What Is Thought in Washington of the Military Operations. Camp on the Lata Beds, April 23, 1873. Tiio cavalry have returned from their scouts and report that they have seen no Modoc signs. This news, however, was already anticipated, as we have seen twelve or four teen Indians some two milos south of tho inlet in the lake. General Gillem sent over orders to Donald McKay to hunt tho lava beds and discover where the Indians were. Donald arrived in camp to-day and reports forty or fifty Modoc bucks and squaws in the black rocks, where wo saw them moving the other day. Donald says that if anything they have a stronger place than thoy had before. AN ATTACK TO BE MADE ON FRIDAY. General Gillem purposes attacking them next Friday. The Modocs are scattered through the country, as one of my couriers was fired on the other day between here and Klamath Lake, and Mr. Ticknor saw two Modocs on Monday carrying bundles and travelling in a westerly direction. INDIANS ESCAPING THE WKATH TO COME. Frank Riddle believes that some of the In dians who wero not connected with the mur ders have loft tho rest of the band and will try to hide themselves among other Indians on some of the reservations. General Gillem purposes A VEKY QUIET ATTACK this time, and will only advance his lines suf ficiently to allow the mortars to operate. Our cavalry are all dismounted, as the epi zooty is raging among the horses. LATER ACCOUNTS. Lava Beds, April 24 ? 11 A. M. The Warm Spring Indians ensamped last night near the lake, between us and Colonel Mason's command. We have not seen an Indian to-day, although a sharp lookout has been kept from the signal station. RETREAT OF THE SAVAGES. Donald McKay is of the opinion they have left, as, finding his party had taken up a posi tion between them and water, they concluded another attack was meditated. The Warm Spring Indians are to hunt them up at niglit, in order to try and find where they have lo cated. Two squaws captured by Colonel Mil ler's battery were brought into camp yester day. They state that TWO YAINOX MODOCS HAVE DESERTED from the band. They were probably the two seen'by Ticknor travelling west in th# direc tion of the Yainox reservation. The reinforcements from San Francisco of two batteries of the Fourth artillery will be here in about five days. THIRTY WARRIORS LEFT. The Indians are supposed to still have about thirty fighting bucks. Donald McKay is of the opinion they have gone in an easterly direction towards Goose Lake. The epizooty# is very bad, nearly every horse being sick. A General Border War Feared? Mr. Aleuehum nnd Captain Egan ltetov ?ring. San Francisco, April 25, 1873.

Washington, April it>"3. 1 The War Department hn* been without offlcla' advices rroiu the Modoc expedition for two or three days, and Inquiry at General Sherman's omcc to-day elicited the fact that there wan no apprehension whatever or a disagreeable character because of tills tact. The General oi the Army himself Is as complacent as a violet on the hillside in the middle ol May, and i? fully cunvluccd thai when the General commanding the expe dition Htralnst the savages deems that he has important news to commuuicate? news such a* will be of substantial tntercst to the gov eminent to Know? that no time will be lost In com municating it to the proper authorities hero, it seems, really, that the government hardly expects anything for some da*. 4 yet ; though facts may &? reported at any moment which will require the return to Washington oi the President and even an extra session of congress. Army officers here, [ :ruju the htuhestto the lowest, t uUcve ttwt it la the true policy to deal with every emergency na It arises, and tills preclude* tbe notion that ttio;e Is an Immediate possibility of what would be universally called a general Indian war. We may have troubles with a half dozen, or even a dozen, or forty aiffbreat bands of Indians, but it win be because the government is engaged In war with any Indians, and not because of auy con certed arrangement among the various tribes. Rvery one will light on his own hoolt, say the leading military authorities who have been ap ?^?oacbed ou the subject. Army officers here are very uT',cl1 lu tenanted (n tlielr feelings against dealiug with aoj* Indians who ,'love recently de monstrated their delight at tlK war rever which, possessing them so long, |ia8 at length broken out practically. General B?v"rruan himself lias been a target lor the yeace men, even now, contend th*t the ploughshare w nu?re valuable in the lava beds than the sword, and has hecn chargcu with Inconsistency because ol a recent comment on a report in lavor of a peace policy, signed by a party in which the General was only one out of seven. In thrn case, as Is well ! known by every one who has given the matter even the slightest consideration, General Sherman was bound by the majority, but he expressed views to Ins associates exactly the same as those which were less than a week ago enun ciated by him and published In his letter to the Herald. General Sherman states that lie has nothing else to xuy upon the subject. HU opinions of Indians have not varied recently In any respect, and. without additional reports, which legit imately carry suggestions upon which may be based general orders or new Instructions from General Sherman, there Is no likelihood of any new action. There is no dissatisfaction here with the conduct of ttie Indian war, and no Intimations, direct or in direct, trorn itrmy headquarters Vbat now, or in lutiire, any change is to be made. The only thorn la our side at present is the Modoc thorn, and, as before said, new emergencies will be met as they arise. COCHISE AND THE INDIAN BOBEAU. Washington, April 26, 1873. It Is denied at the Indian ilureau that Cochise Is off his reservation, committing depreilatious. When last heard from, a short time ago, he was still on the reservation on which he had been placed by General Howard, and expressed his In tention of remaining there. THE INDIANS IN KANSAS. Denial of the Report* of Massacrcs by the Onagri* and Cheyenne*. Topeka, Kansas, April 25, 1873. Several parties, just arrived from Baroour county, deny the accounts of Indian troubles In that county receutly reported by Atchison and Leaven worth newspapers. Travellers are constantly pass ing between Medicine Lodge an'd Hutchinson, and no troubles with Indians have been heard of. Three citizens returned to Hutchinson yesterday it'om a Journey of two hundred miles southwest, oroHtog the cimmaron ami Canadian rivers, visit ing Camp Supply and returning througti the Co manche country, travelling all tho time in perlect saiety. A CELEBBA'i'ED KENTUCKY LAWSUIT DE CIDED. Cincinnati, Ohio, April 25, 1873. Tho Kentucky Court of Appeals have rendered a decision in the celebrated case of the Covington and Lexington Railroad Company vs. The Heirs and Administrators of R. B. Bowler and Others, who, since 1 85a, have held the road by virtue of purchase at sales decreed by the Fayette Circuit. Court to satisfy the trustee of the second mort gage bopds. The decision of tho Court is that the heirs of Bowler do not hold the road in their ow n right, but as trustees for the railway company, and that commissioners appointed by the proper Court shall adjust the claims between Bowler's heirs and the cempany fr*m the date of the transier In 1859 to the date of the restoration of the road to the Cov ington and Lexington Company. Tho decision of the Court whs unanimous. The arguments of the plaintiff's counsel were that Bowler at the time of the purchase was occu pying a position of trust to the company. Whether acting in good or bad faith he could hold tbe road only in the capacity of trustee to the company.
