Programme of Proceecings.
EBY Telegraph to the Pittsburgh Gazette.)
CarcA.oo, December 12.—The local com
mittees are very busy in their preparafions
for the Great Army Re-union which is to
take place in this city on Tuesday and
Wednesday of this week. The present in
dicates that nearly two thotisand officers of
tile four armies will be present and take
part lathe festivities. This number will be
nearly proportionately divided between the
four arailes. The Army of the Tennessee
will make their headquarters at the Tre
mont House, the Armies of the Cumber
land and Georgia will do the same at the
Sherman House, and the Army of the Ohio
will rendezvous at the Briggs House.
Daring Tuesday the different armies will
hold separate business meetings, and for
this purpose the Army of the Tennessee
will occupy Crosby's Maisie Hall, the
Army of the Cumberland will convene in
MaVicker's' Theatre, and the Army of the
Ohio will hold its meetings in Caledonia
Hall, Metropolitan block. The Army of
Georgia is not yet thoroughly organized,
and they will probably meet with the'Army
of the Cumberland until their own organi9
zation Is perfected.
On Tuesday evening a grand re=union
all the armies will take place in the Opera
House. The programme for the occasiolo
is as follows: •

The Peruvian Pleet—Misanderstandingi3e
tween the Crews and Officers./
Mr Telegraph to the Pittsburgh Gazette./
IV w ORLIIAItg, ' December 12. An , .
portant misunderstanding has occurred be
tween the officers and crews of the Peru
vian fleet recently fitted out in this city.
The transports are now lying in the Missis
sippi, the crews of which were shipped in
New. York with the express understanding
that they shottld be 'paid tweinontha in ad
vance, and that they were to serve under
the United States fag for one year. To-day
the officers of the Teasel hoisted the Peru-

were no longer under thb protection, o the
. stars end-stripes. Vo-night the officers at
tempted by force to oompel the crews to
work the vessels toss& ' The crewsrefased
and all comminication with the shore at
New Orleans was cut off. The crew 'then
threatened that should the , attempt be
made to force them to sea they would
throw the officers overboard. This had the
desired effect , and the officers at once ap
,plied to. the police force of the Y as
'ffistance. The police officials. tdeclined to
interfere, on the ground that they had no
Jurisdiction, and the conflict between offi-' I
cars and crows is progressing.
THE ACADMIY.-010 /3111/ was welcomed
before' the footlights at the Academy, on
Saturday night, by another large and bril
liant audience. The commodious house
was packed from pit to dome and standing
room was at a premium. • The concert, like
that of the previous evening, was a suc
cess not only pecuniarily to Ole Ball, but
another grand triumph of his towering
geniva. His efforts on the violin were, per
haps, a shade more brilliant and impressive
than those which produced such marked
effect on the audience in attendance at the
musical ovation of the previous evening,
He was rapturously encortd time and a
those present drinking into their souls
ravishing sweet music sent capering from
his violin, and, in their - intoxication of de
light, selfishly clamored for more when the
last sound died upon their ears. Miss
Barton, too, did better and won for herself
high place in the estimation of those pres—
ent, as a vocalist of superior power and
ability. Prof. Lansing sustained his envi
able reputation at the piano as an interpre
ter and accompanist.
To-night the grand old master of music
will favor the community with a farewell
concert at the Academy, and we hope none
who have thus far failed to hear him will
longer deprive themselves of the pleasure:
Perhaps-this occasion may be the last ,one
presented for seein and hearing Ole Bull
the violinist whose name ' will shine forever
in musical history as one of the greatest in
terpreters of the age in which we live, • •
and all should embrace the golden oppor
tunity afforded. Reserved seats! may be
obtained to-day at Mellon's well-known
music store, No. 81,Wood street.
PAllEPA.—litadame Parepa Rosa who is
on her return from California to New
York, will give on of her grand concerts at
the Academy of Music, Wednesday even-
ing. She will be assisted by a troupe of
artists scarcely less brilliant than herself,
and the concert will doubtless be a first
class entertainment. The sale of Beata
will commence at Melloestliiii morning at
nine o'clock. • / •
OPERA.Housg--The engagement of Mr.
Edwin Adami, one of the moat promising
Men of his profesaion now on the boards,
closed at the Opera House Saturday night.
The attendance during the two weeks he
had been here was only moderately gnod,
considering the attraction. To.night Miss ,
Maggie Mitchell, the 'universal favorite,
opens an' ngagement for a week with "Fan
choncilbe Cricket." Miss Mitchell has al
ways drawn fail houses here, as well as in
every'cither city in whichshe has appeared,
and we would suggest the propriety of per
sons wishing to see' her engaging their
seats at once.
