In the winter of 1861, in the theater
at St. Louis, the wife the prinoipal ao-
tor tossed to ber btuband our .National
flag. lie oaught, eageily unrolled it, and
carefully and audibly oounted over the
starry representatives of 8tates stamped
upon its folds. As he pronounced the fi
nal number, "thirty four," he held the
flag aloft, .rnd triumphantly exclaimed,
"thank God, they are all there I" amidst
an enthusiastio applause that shook the
building like an earthquake, and melted
to tears hundreds in the vast assemblego.
In the winter of 1865, in the House of
representatives at Washington, creden
tials, bearing the broad sial of the State
of Tennessee were held up in full view of
its membors. lhaddeus Slovens arose,
and with a wave of the hand, said : "Mo
such State as Tennessee is known to this

Suppose Thaddcus Steven's to havo utter

are thoroughly imbued with the genius
and science of republican government.
Trained by the severest mental discipline
tried in the seven times-heated furnace
of prosecution, and scarred all oyer as he
is with the cruel snails of calumny, I de
sire to-day to give him that indorsement,
in which I bolieve the future judgment of
the American peoplo will fully acquiesce,
when the unruly storm of the present
hour shall have been shut np ones more
in its natural caves, and when the gentle
hand ol peace shall again smooth tho sur

The Dress In the Illack Crook.
A New York correspondent of tbe Pe
tersburg Index gives the following ao-
count of the dress pf the "ladies" in the
celebrated play of the Black Crook,
whioh has had such a famous tun in New
"York- He says :
'.'The ballet troupe consists of better
looking young ladies than the ordinary run
of such troupes, and it la astonishing to
tee to what a degree of perfeotion they
have reduced tbe praotice of economy in
dress. If Mrs. Eve should find herself
in Niblo's, I think that she would feel
perfectly at home, and Mr. Adam would
not think ot blushing at all on aooount of
his scantily supplied wardrobe. I don't
exactly know how to describe the cos
tume, bat it rominds me of piotures
that I used to tee in Mitchell t geography,
when I was at school, of 'native Hotten
tots It is a mighty convenient costume
for dancing. You can't tread on her
skirts to save your life, and there is no
danger of being tripped op by crinoline
as you go around in tho German. No
collars or eons to be mashed : no sleeves
to bo ripped; in thort, it it so close to
nothing that yon are a long time nnding
out the difference ; and if yoa don't like
my description, just come on, buy two
tickets, and I will carry you to see it.''
