THI movement for a new theater is said to be
AN, progruaing very rapidly, a large amouat of stock
having already been subscribed for by men who
are able to do so. It is contemplated to have it
e. comp:eted by a year from next fall, and be ready
to open for the season. It will be built some
where on Canal street, and be an elegant struo
tare, worthy the city sad its people. It will be
bullst dfferently from any theater in the Sooth,
having more ventilation, thus allowing of a longer
season than can now be posalbly played at any of
our theaters. It will also have drawing-rooms, a
restaurant, and other conveniences such as may
be needed. It will be a b!essing, certainly, when
we can take a lady to a theater without passing
blocks of gambling houses and bar rooms, through
dirty or dark streets, and through crowds of loaf

The act passed at the last session of the Legis.
-n- lature relative to births and deaths in the parish
Sbe of Orleans will, we are informed, be rigidly en
forced by Mr. L. Pesmon, recorder of births and
"" deaths. The enforcement of this act is desirable,
for it was impossible, as matters stood before the

se thirty per cent. of the births and deaths are re
ported at his cfice, for a large buamber occur in
lwer the charitable iLntitutions or prisons of the parish
r be and; there is no law requiring the officers
of these institutions to report them to
w s the proper officer. It appears also
from past experience that the recording of the
b, names of persons who die im these institutions is
mere necessary than in other cases. Many of
thian are stringers who die in the charitable in
thiy stitutioas, and it often occurs that information is
sought for by their friends in foreign countries, at
the recorder's office, where no record exists, and
,. oe therefore it is necessary to examine the records
em. of the charitable institutions mentioned before the
desired information is obtained. The law existing
at present requires, as formerly, that all births
and deaths shall be reported to the recorder, and
besides, makes it the duty of the coroners, pre
sidents, managers or superintendents of the chari
st. table or other institutions to have deaths occur
ring in their institutions recorded with the re
corder. The sextons of cemeteries are also for
bidden from interring any body of a deceased per

Sus that the 8tate warrants are extensively forged

made a thousand, five 'hunndred five thousand, ten
Sis changed to one hundred, and so on; that if they t
are not in over lsue, like the national currency
and the national bonds, they at least represent an
indebtedness of the Mtate more than double what
it really is. As capitalists may deem this species
r of collateral good investment, it may be well for
them to examine closely the whole spurious lot
before buying them. Like everything about the

ST. CInARI.Es.-t was an audience none too
may lrge which assembled last evening in response to
when the announcement that Mrs. Lander would on that
wiing occasion celebrate her benefit by appearing in her
ough original tragic role of Eiizabeih, yQuecn of Eni -
land. None too large, we say, for our own
wishes had previously combined with the reputa
ntle tion of the beneficiary to afford anticipations of
an overflowing attendance. As it was, however,
there were enough people present to give Mrs.
up in Lander assurance of a rare appreciation of the
,east- many delicate bits of acting with which she
adorned the impersonation. We looked with
week some feeling of national pride upon Mrs. Lander's
gator E'izabe/,, for she stands out in relief to-day as
the Ametican tragedienne, as in contradistinction
to Ristori of the Italian and Janausobek of the
gis. (German schools. And we found, too, while
aris her conception of the part is necessarily dif
ferent in many points from those held of
Fen- it by the artists mentioned, much new

reflected the greatest credit upon the weo'e com

in- pro u, d at the Varieties this winter, not eveot

the the hbrest, loving. credulous, )et w'iole-sonie-I

Lter every character she has asotild, exceilently.
Her "qarrels with Sir Peter Teazle, par'Icrlarly

aan both parties, and elicited hearty aptlanse. Mr.
