tag done by oar Boston Catholic con tempo rary. The Jewish Times argues in behalf of the Hebrew Benevolent and Orphan Asylum. The Hebrew Leader striken up its lyre on the "Reawakening of Nature by King Solomon in the Song of S?ngs":-k The Winter 1b over; Flowers are bedecking the fields; The birds commence to carol; The voice of nature becomes loud on earth. All of which is very pretty and very Scriptu ral ; but it is difficult "to see" the above sorts of things in this vicinity about these chilly and blustering days. The Jewish Messenger touches* on "Rou mania," "Fair Play," "Mixed Worship" and other matters. The Sailors and the "Land Sharks." Jack is not noted for thrift. He is brave and generous, faithful to his obligations and credulous of sincerity in others. But after his hard work is done, his exposure to hard ship and danger over, he is apt to squander his hard earnings with lavish hand and sur render to dishonest custody the wages which should provide for his own comfort and the support of those dear to him. Since sailors j first oame' ashore with money in their pockets there has not ceased to be "land sharks," who, in the character of boarding masters, have relentlessly robbed .Jack. Th.-y not only "cleaned him out," but have established a system of "tick" for him, which mortgages his future industry. He is made to run up a bill as honest as those the old Tamma 3' King charged to the Court House fund ; then, by the aid of Fourth ward rum, the almost or quite unconscious seaman is sold and delivered to a shipmaster whoso craft is ready to begin her voyage, the board ing master getting payment of his very honest account, and Jack getting the chance, by a long term of toil, to pay for a few days' spree. In the hands of the "land shr.rk" Jack is no more able to take his own part than a worried mouse to thrive under t&e care of an active Grimalkin. . Congress in its wisdom undertook to protect the sailors from the sharks. It es tablished in New York and other ports Ship ping Commissioners, in whose offices alone masters of American ships engaged in foreign trade could ship men and pay oft' seamen. The Commissioners are allowed to grant sailors certificates by which they may discharge their actual debts, the certificates being paid ten days after the debtor has started on his voyage. This does not satisfy the hun gry boarding masters, who have combined to resist the law by embarrassing and overawing the Commissioner. So violent have they been in their proceedings that the Commissioner has found it necessary to lay the case before the Grand Jury. Indictments have been found against a large number of these men, who are mostly keepers of boarding houses near the wharves. About fifty of them spent Friday night in the Oak street police station, and were yesterday brought to the City Hall, when Recorder Hackett allowed them to give bail for their appearance in Court to answer the indictments when called. It is clear that these men must submit to the law. If, on trial, their guilt is established, there is no doubt the Court will fully discharge its duty in inflicting such penalties as shall convince the culprits that there is vitality ifa the law and an earnest determination on the part of the judiciary to protect sailors against the rapacity of their false friends ? the boarding house sharks.

Governor Beverldge, of Illinois, has signed a bill tor the construction of a dam. Trouble has fre quently arisen from the misconstruction of one. Beveridges particularly have produced the latter. "The coming K " has need to conciliate the masses. At a late republican conference in Shef field, England, it was announced that the brother hood would contest the succession of the Prince of Wales. The memorial address on William H. Seward by Charles Francis Adams has provoked a controversy between the Albany Jourruil (administration) and the Argus (democratic). Perhaps Mr. Adams did not think particularly of pleasing either when he prepared his powerful discourse. Ex-Sheriff John Kelly was a passenger for Eu rope on the steamship BaltU, that sailed yester day. Mr. Kelly intends to be absent from home about three months.

Chasuy, the Great French Player, to Meet Our Good Shot*. Billiard experts and those amateurs who And delight in rolling spheres of Ivory over the smooth green clothed table, will be pleased to hear that the advent to our shores of a coterie of celebrated players is expected shortly. For a considerable period M. Rudolph held sway in New York as ehaniplon at the throe ball carrom game ; but now there comes one who is said to be mightier than lie? a professional billiard player whose performances have won lor him the title of champion billiardist of the world. Pierre Caruie, on his uppearunce In New ^ ork, won much applause irom native knisrhts of tne cue, but his star was eclipsed by Rudolph. The Dions, Cyrllle and Joe, struggled hard for priority, and Melvln Foster did his best to acquire the title of champion, as did also Deery and others, whose ambition was to ootain possession of tiie diamond cue and the title of champion. Now. Ave or six of the players in America who are most accomplished at the three ball carrom game arc to appear at the grand tournament, which will be held in this city during the first week in June. The tournament, which is to take place at the Academy of Music, Stelnway or li ving Hall, will last six days. Upon every (lay oi the week during that period there will be matinees, at winch the most celebrated professional billiard players will exhibit their skill. Gamier, Maurice Daly, John Deerv, Joe Dion and young Mr. Cook, the champion of Kng land, will assist. The three ball carrom, or French game, will be played during the day and evening, and prizes will be offered severally of $600, $300 aud $'.200 to the most skiliul competitors, in ad dition a large silver cup, something alter the style of the annual yachting cup, of pure silver, will be the guerdon that the victor win receive. The games are to be 300 points up. aud the duration of each will be about two hours. The prizes are offered b> Mr. William n. Collender, lat ely the partner of the deceased Mr. Michael Phelan, whose name is known wherever billiards are in vogue. Mr. Collender Is the originator and or ganizer of this tournament, ami through his en deavors a committee of gentlemen prominent in science, literature and art will officiate as the jury during the tournament. The great feature of the contest will be the appearance or Mr. Francois Ubassy, the champion ol the world at the thfoc ball carrom game. Mr. Ubassy has lately Been engaged in New Orleans in a great billiard con test, with Miller, ihe champion of the Southern States, in which the Frenchman proved the victor. Mr. L'bassy Is a native of Marseilles, and a towns man and schoolfellow of I^eon Gambetta, the great republican statesman. In lHtiti Mr. l'bassy offered to play any man in France at the thruc ball carrom game lor a stake of 1,000 francs, but could find no one. wilhnsr to ac cept the gage. He became the Parisian billiard lion, anil in ISO" he had won sucli renown that he was urged to meet Charles Berger. The two great bliliardists played a game of French carroms, 4,ooo points up. t bassy won by fi-9, making an average of seven and one-half, his largest run !>elng eighty-live. He I lien came to this country, aud efforts were made to arrange a match between him and Joseph Dion, but the latter declined to compete, rbassy, in ids conception ?! shots, is instantaneous, and he de livers his stroke directly his hand tone, lies the table. He never plays tor effect, and while leaning over the table resembles a Heidelburg proiessor. This.will be the lourth national billiard tourna ment which has been held In New York, and It promises to l>e a grand success. TIlOTTiiICi AT FLEETWOOD. Two trotting events cum'' on at Fleetwood Park ' yesterday, and though the weather was not pro- I pi i i<?us for such sport, there wan a fair attendance j of spectators. First on cue programme was a | sweepstakes of $.;oo, mile neats, best three in five, j In harness, with owners to drive. Entered lor this were R. 0 Anderson's sorrel gelding state of Maine, William Lovell's l>av ninre Lady Lovell. and Mf. Elliott's brown mare Dutch Maid. The latter was distanced in tlio first heat, hat tr required six to deckle the contest, state or Maine scoring the first, third and sixth, the filth being a dead heat. 1 what little Interest the race created was manl- ; fested In the last two heats. The second event was a match lor $200, mile and repeat, catch weights, between Malice's gray mare ! Crazy Jane anil Novell's brown gelding Harney 1 Kelly, the former In harness and the latter to wagon. The gelding was the favorite two to one before ihe start, and seldom lias the turf, in small events oi this character, noted such disappointed men as were the friends of Harney Kelly after lils defeat. The judges ol the day were Messrs. Van Ness, Klmmey and Crawford. The following are summaries ol the spoit:? Flkstwood Park, April 2fl. ?

Leclnrc on the Characteristics of Yankee Humor. The hall of the Young Men's Christian Associa tion was nearly filled yesterday afternoon hv an audience thai was derived for the most part from Ihe female sex. It had been announced that Miss Eiully Fatthfull and Grace Greenwood would be the speakers at yesterday's matlnde, but the cold wind and the clouds of dust were not friendly to the asthma that has been the faithful companion oi the latter during her^tuy In this country, and therefore Grace Greenwood, previous to the delivery ot her lecture, announced with regret Faithfuli's inability to be present. The lectnress, in presenting herselt to her audience, revealed * more youthful figure and manner than might have been expected by the unsophisticated observer, who can remember for how long a period Grace Greenwood has occupied a place in the pub lic eye. Her attire was a black velvet robe, and her hair was dressed In the prevailing fashion ot maidenhood, and pendant from her deli cate ears glittered tho gilded ornaments of the period. The subject of the lecture was ??Y ankee Humor and Its Characteristics,'' a lecture that has recently bees delivered In the city. The Imitation of the Yankee dialect was admirable, and the stories told Illustrative of New England man ners, customs, thrift and quiet wit brought out a c.herus of silver-toned laughter that showed now keen was the gentle feminine car for fun. Now and then the stories went to the very ridge of propriety ; but the ladies did not seem to nnnd this, and ac cepted everything with gladness that came from the fair Hps of the lecturer. A SPORTING MAN ACCIDENTALLY KILLED. Baltimorb, Md., April 2fl, 1873. Andrew J. Crow, well known In Baltimore sport ing circles, was instantly killed this morning In Henry Crey's restaurant, on East Madison street, by tho accidental discharge of a gun in the bands John Hell, the bartender, Hell pointed the gun at Crow, supposing it was uot loaded, when the chargo exploded with the above result. j ART MATTERS. Mr. Bherwood'i Gallery. It is not often that such a chance in offered to the public as that now presented ?f inspecting the pictures constituting the gallery of Ur. John H. Sherwood. They are to he seen at that gentle man's residence, No. 522 Fifth avenue, and are 122 in number. The reason for their approaching sale is to be discovered in Mr. Sherwood's projected visit to Europe, where he Intends to remain several years. They were, for the most part, painted to order, and in many instances arc the best examples thus far sent from the stu dios of the artists whose autographs they bear. The entire collection has been on exhibition (by card) at Mr. Sherwood's residence since Inst Tues day, and will be sold at auction next Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, by the Messrs. Lcavlit, at their salesroom at Clinton Ilall. There will be no reserve whatever. Scarcely a member of this collection but deserves re-examination ; but we shall contlne ourselves to only a few this morning. In this country, where the nude is almost entirely abjured, and prjidery shuts her eyes to even puro and beautiful naked ness, Cabanel's "Eve After the Expulsion from Paradise'' will not. be so openly admired as it ) would be abroad. And vet it Is' a powerful and most exquisite piece of painting, lovely in its ideal, most exquisitely elaborated aud .exe cuted with a purity of touch aud motive that cannot easily be too highly praised. Eve lies

at full tenth, partly on the left side, and partly on the back, a nearly full front view being pre sented. Her heavy hair, rich with Its own lair brightness, is meshed and tangled in long glitter ing tresses behind tier shoulders. Her head is thrown back, and tlie eyes are closed and partially shaded with the left hand. The right arm upraised, passes ?ver the right side of the face aud upper part of the head, and Is pressed against the trunk of a tree. The limbs arc stretched upon the ground. The whale attitude is exceedingly difficult to reproduce with naturalness, but tlie success with which the task of doing so is achieved is wonderfully perfect. The flesh has that pink firmness and elasticity which belong to youth. There is lulness without' grossness, and a delicately delicious animalism without voluptu ousness. Still, the entire attitude is less sugges tive of tragic abandonment, such as might be sup posed to have overwhelmed our first mother the moment, alter expulsion, than of languor and weari ness of soul, and the loss of in even the memories of lost paradise. One of the finest specimens of Ouy that we have ever seen is "The Little Stranger," in which the sun shines, tempered through azure curtains, upon a criiusou carpeted bedroom, containing a miracu lously painted bedstead, wherein reclines a young mother, who has just passed through the agonies of a second confinement and is beginning to taste the delight of convalescence. Iteshle the bed stands a nurse, with mothcrlincss beaming out of every fold in her doublo etiln? a nurse evidently with a long retrospect of happy deliveries to look back on, and whose diary, did she keep one, might brim with details of tri umphant lyitigs-in. The child who has hitherto been the only one sits at the foot of the bed caressing the gorgeously swaddled new comer, whose slightly parplc visage and utterly linirless head denote tue shortness of its arrival. Tho key note to the picture is fonnd in the handsome and humiliated doll wltieh lies utterly unregarded on the carpet with its face to the ground. "Sunday Morning," by A. Slegert, is a simple cottage lyric, treated with great leeling. A girl ish mother sits, on Sunday morning, by the open window, watching her infant sleep. Her hands hold the Bible open, but her thoughts are on her child, and she sees perhaps its father through her tender musings. People wending churchward are seen through the unshut window, and give a sort of marginal reading to the sweet artistic text. The expression upon the sleeping baby's lace is Indicated with slngnlar felicity? it Is so full of the quiet, half-conscious rapture of dreaming babyhood. Wo confess, too, to a partiality for that awav-from-the-world senti ment of which "Fair Held Lawn. Isle of Wight," by H. and 0. Shayer, Is full. The trees, burdened with deep greenness, tower up into oaeh other and loltily interlace; a drove of sheep huddle, with meek precipitancy, onward In the distance, and there are the thatched roof, and the buxom housewife, and the alert milk maid, and the lingering horseman, and that delicious penslveness that is produced by i>eace and sunlight., purity and innocence and remoteness irom the world. We must return again to speak ol other and, perhaps, even bettor pictures. Herb sthoifer's "Msit to the Grandparents" shows a rich Polish interior, with wines and viands in the background, gorgeously attired attendants anil a pretty pair or children led by their mother. to do obeisance to their grandparents. Irving's "Rec onciliation" belongs t<> a class of pictures over which ladies and the admirers of J. G. Urowu rave. A little girl and boy of about clglit having quarrelled, arc obviously on the point of making up. The little girl, toying with' a necklace, wears i an expression that implies an amiable readiness t,o . lorgive, and stands leaning against, an arm of a chair with hor back to the boy, who, with one knee resting on the Chair cushion, holds Ills hand hesi tatingly near her curls and looks wlnsomely con trite. "Snapping the Whip" Is one of Wiiislow Homer's most successful pictures. "The Coming storm," by Rouguereau, may possibly have a double signification. A country girl takes shelter under a tree, but the storm that broods over the i landscape is prefigured In her sail eyes, and we I we lear i hat she conceals a secret like Hetty sor rel's In "Ailam llede." We mention no more at present. Private Hecrptlon Liut Night. Last ovemng a private view was given of some pictures at the. Somervllle Art Gallery, 82 Fifth avenue. They are in charge of Mr. II. E. Moore, the accomplished expert, of ui Union square, and constitute, in the opinion of that gentleman, the first competitive sale of fine paintings by American artists in which an effort has been made to gain for our home art. just recognition. The claims upon our space this tnornlng preclude more than a mere mention oi the lact that the reccpi ion took place. Nadamr Hazard. The principal sculptures which Mme. ITaznrd is pi ill so fortunate as to retain will probably soon be exhibited at one of the most popular ami ele gant little public galleries In this city. WEATHER REPORT.
