The JTIendelMohn Quintette Glub.
-, It is scarcely necessary to add any
thing to what has already been said of
the grand musical treat we are to have
to-night The Mendelssohn company
have, judging from the criticisms of the
press since they .started on their South
ern tonr, fully sustained the reputation
which they had already established; in
Boston, where the music club which
bears the name was organized many
years ago. The sale of tickets at the
usual places and through the members
of the Gounod Club indicates that they
are already assured of a good house and
of an appreciative and' cultured audi
ence. As a portion of the proceeds from
the entertainment are to be devoted to
the poor of the city, it is the more earn
estly hoped that the house will be
crowded. Those who fail to hear the
Quintette Club will miss a rare musi
WLimm Claxton at tbe Opera House.
On Saturday night of this week the
great New York success, "The Double
Marriage," will be presented at the
opera house. Miss Kate Claxton, the
young actress, supported by Mr. Chas.
A. Stevenson and her New York com
pany, comprising M. W. Leffingwell,
Edward Arnott, Wm. Davidge, and
other artists of talent, will appear in the
cast. This new play of Miss Claxton's
is said to be more popular than
any other in her extensive repertoire,
and in which she has attained such
celebrity. "The Double Marriage" is a
dramatization from Chas. Reade's popu
lar novel, "White Lies," and is a work
of powerful dramatic beauty, combin
ing strong situations, tender emotions,
and original constructions not copied
or plagiarized from any other play, as
so many of the society dramas of the
present day are.
The Swedii.Ii Lady Vocal Quartet.
By no meanf least among the many
good things in the amusement line
which we are now enjoying, will be
Mishler's famous Swedish Lady Quartet,
assisted by the Russian harpist, Mr.
Alex. Freygang. This combination has
never appeared before in the South, but
it is celebrated throughout the North,
East and West Here they will sing for
the benefit of the Lee Monument fund,
Mr. Joseph Chenet, the advance agent,
having made the arrangements here
yesterday to this effect. The ladies will
interest themselves in this entertain
ment, and upon the ground of its merits
and the object,; it is hoped that a large
house can be secured. The combina
tion is one of undoubted talent, and one
which we are sure will be appreciated
in Charlotte. For the present it is not
necessary for us to do more than intro
duce this quartet to our people, which
we do by quoting from the New York
Herald of a recent date, which speaks
of the appearance of the company in
that city, saying that "they met with in
stantaneous success, and charmed the
audience by th admirable qualities of
"their voices, the finish of their style,
and the peculiar expression with which
they invested the music."
Juliuu Cmar Iat Night.
There was a fine crowd at the opera
house last night to welcome Mr. Ford's
Julius Caesar combination, with Mr. F.
C. Bangs in the character of Marc An
tony. It is not too much to say that
the satisfaction of the audience was
well nigh complete, nor is it too much
to say that since Booth was here there
has been seen n the Charlotte stage no
acting which can be compared with
that of Mr. Bangs. He made an Arij
tony such as even the closest student m.
Shakespeare had scarcely areamea o:
His wonderful power controlled th
emotions of his audience, even as th
eal Antonv. as painted by the ban
controlled the emotions of the populace
in the market place ot Kome. We can
not imagine how his playing of the pul
pit scene could have been improved
upon, and yet it will stand a critical
test no better than that in which he is
eft alone by the conspirators with the
dead body of Csesar. In every part the
man s soul was m ms wont ana ine
man was sunk in the character which
fie represented. The muscles of his
imbs and neck swelled with his breast ;
the perspiration rolled from his forehead
and when he pronounces the invective
upon the conspirators it seems that
his eyes flash living fire. Thrice was
he called before the curtain ; twice im
mediately after the oration in which he
so stirreu the populace and once at the
end of the last act. Each time he was
greeted with tremendous applause ; and

Mr. Keene s interpretation of Uassius
was very fine ; at times he was great ; in
he scene wnere ne nrsx lnsuus uie poi
son into the mind of Brutus, he gave
evidence of much genius ; frequently he
pronounced his lines verynneiy: some
times he ranted too much, we thought,
and if any general charge can be pre
ferred against his acting, it is that he
emphasises without sufficient discrim
ination. Upon the whole Mr. Keene
brought out the adroitness rather the
cunning or uassiuswun muuu viviu
ness,and his acting in the tent scene with
Brutus left nothing to be desired. It
was his master stroke.
Mr Tnwnincr. as Brutus, though
manifestly unsuited to the part, made
many friends in his audience. If e has a

' This affection amounts . almost to an
epidemic in the community. It is sup

but may be more particularly due to the
prevalence to warm and damp weather.
One of our physicians is of opinion that
it is traceable of malarial influences
prevalent last summer, f If this theory
can be established it will furnish a very
effective argument next summer in be

Another Phyiclan. .
It is not generally known among our
people that Sergeant Dennis O'Dono
ghue, signal station observer in this
city, is. a regularly licensed physician
and a practitioner of very considerable
experience. He holds his diploma from
the Alabama Medical College, having
studied medicine and attended the lec
tures while in charge of the signal sta
tion at Mobile, and at the meeting of
the Charlotte Academy of Medicine
held night before last his petition for
membership was presented and favor
ably acted upon. He bears credentials
of the most complimentary character
from the faculty of the Alabama Medi
cal College and from the physicians of
Mobile. Henceforward he will unite
the practide of his profession with his
duties as signal officer, giving such
time to matters in the medical pro
fession ,as is not employed in the ser
vice of the government
Improving a Fire Company.
The Pioneer Fire company, one of
the most useful and effective organiza
tions the city ever had, has recently
reorganized and is now in excellent
condition. At a re6ent meetinsr thev
resolved to make an effort towards pur
chasing horses to draw their engine, and
committees were appointed for each
ward to call on citizens for pecuniary
aid in the undertaking Their fincrine

members that it can be drawn to dis

fact which will be readily admitted, and

aid and encouragement they wish. It
is a matter of &rp,nt imnnrtannfi that thd
fire organizations of the citv should h
kept up to a fine standard of p.Trcp.llpnf p
and this is one of the ways to do it.

fore Justice Davidson vpstprdav fnr ad

preacher connected with thp Mphndiat
church, an old man and a respectable
citizen. He charged two boys with jeer
ing at and in many ways annoying him
on the street and whpnpvpr ho met
them. The treatment he recp.ivpd had
many instances been nothing short
insult He said further t.haf. hp did
not feel justified in taking violent meas
ures, nor was he inclined to do so, but
their Conduct towards him had hppn
such that he could stand it no longer ;
he had tried reproaches and entreaties,
dui pom naving tailed, he was compell
ed to resort to the courts of law for
protection from this species of annov-
ance. It could not even be shown that
he had said or done any thing which
could have offended the youths, who,
by the way are brothers, and according
ly proceedings were taken against them !
for malicious mischief. The prosecutor,
however, consented to withdraw his
suit, or rather to a suspension of judg
ment over the defendants, with the
promise that the offence should never
be repeated. The boys were according
ly aiscnarged with this understanding.
