AMUSSMXNTS TO NIGHT
Cahtbbbubt.?The male performers are
jolly, happy and witty, and the females are
ray and lovely, and they all infuse a deal of
inn and joviality throughout the large audi
??es who nightly delight to witness their en
tertainments. It is healthy to laugh. There
lore all who can't laugh ordinarily, should
visit Canterbury, and they will be sure to
laugh at the extraordinary and funny per
Eli.ihgeb tc Footb'p great moral exhibition
opened last night at Odd Fellow's Hall, and to
a good audience. Com. Foote, Col. Small, Miss
Eliza Nestel (all dwarfs), and the vocalists
and musicians did their parts to the satisfac
tion ol all in attendance. Last niebt the pro
ceeds of the performance were devoted to the
benefit of St. Joseph's Orphan Asylum. To
night the proceeds will go to aid St. Ann's In
fant Asylum. A company who is thus liberal
In aiding purely benevolent institutions, is
certainly deserving of an extended patronage.
Spkkcii of the President to thb 166th
Ohio IlKr.rMEifT.?The time of the 166th Ohio
regiment, Col- Blake commanding, hundred
day men, having expired, they yesterday after
noon paid their respects to the President, who
made them a speech in front of the Executive
mansion. The President addressed them
I suppose you are going home to see your
families and friends. For the service you have
done in this great Btruggle, in which we are
all engaged, I present you my sincere thanks
for myseil and the country. 1 almost always
feel inclined, when I happen to say anything
to soldiers, to impress upon them, in a few
brief remarks, the importance of success in this
contest. It is net merely for to-day, but for all
time to come, that we should perpetuate for
our children's children this great and free
Government which we have enjoyed all our
lives I beg you to remember this, not merely
lor my sake, but for yours. 1 happen, tempo
rarily, to occupy this White House. 1 am a
living witness that any one of your children
may look to come here as my lather's child
has. It is in order that each of you may have,
through this free Government which we have
enjoyed, an open field and a fair chance for
your industry, enterprise and intelligence.
That you may all have equal privileges in the
Tace of life, with all its desirable human aspi
rations. It is for this the struggle should be
maintained, that we may not lose our birth
Tight. Not only for one, but for two or three
years, the nation is worth lighting for to se
cure such an inestimable jewel.
The President having concluded, the soldiers
gave him three cheers.
Grahd Larceny.?Handal Jackson and M.
A. Jackson, colored, were arrested last night
toy roundsman EcklofT and officer Wood, of the
1th Ward, for stealing a hundred dollar note
from John F. West, colored. The case was
taken before Justice Giberson for a hearing. It
appeared that last Sunday West and the pris
oners engaged a hackinan to carry them to va
rious places. During the time that he was
employed the haekman saw the hundred dol
lar note several times. The Jacksons left
"West in the hack, about 7 o'clock, and the
haekman carried West to his home, on I street, j
and when West took out his money to pay the !
back hire he discovered that he had lost his
hundred dollar note. West had been drunk
since Saturday, and when the officer arrested
the Jacksons West was with them at a ball at
SSam'l Ireland's, and was arrested with them.
Justice Giberson held thsm to bail for court >
in S200 each. When arrested the two Jacfrsen's
immediately declared that they would fix off 1
West: that he is a deserter; %vas put in as a I
substitute by ? man named Stokes, at Ellicott's
IVIills, and has deserted. West was very much
inclined to let the case go, |but the justice would
not take part in compounding a felony, and
refused to discharge the case. West was held
by the police te be turned over to the provost
marshal, tostand investigation upon the charge
of desertion. West and the Jacksons all
claim to be employees of the Sanitary Com
Thrashing the Wroko Boy.?This morn
ing, between 7 and 9 o'clock, a haekman named
Hildebrand went to the stand corner of 12th
and 1> streets, and getting down from his box
employed a colored shoeblack to black his
boots. The boy finished his work, and Hilde
brand offered him a dollar note in payment.
The boy said he had no change, but would go
Into Randall's grocery store and get it. Hilde
brand replied, Never mind, I'll pay you after
a while " The bootblack said if he didn't pay
him he would muddy the boots. Hildebrand
?went toward bis hack, and the boy threw mud
on his boots: and a white boy named Edward
Haye, who was standing by, joined the shoe
black, and thew mud, which,however, did not
strike Hildebrand':- boots. Hildebrand caught
the wbite boy and beat him so severely that
John D. Clark, Esq., interfered, and arrested
Hildebrand, and tnrned him over to the police.
The boy Haye wi? represented to be a wild and
bad boy, and Justice Clayton decided to dis
miss the case of assault and battery, and fined
Hildebrand for disorderly conduct.
Fell Overboard.?a man, named either
lianiel or Thomas Harrigan.was drowned from
the Charlotte Yanderbilt under the following
circumstances : Harrigan took passage on the
Yanderbilt from City Point at 10 o'clock a. m.
on Monday, where he had been engaged as a
laborer in the employ of the Government.
.Being well supplied with money, he had in
dulged rather freely in liquor, and in that state
went cn board the steamer. About 3 p. m. he
was attempting, in a spirit of braggadocia, to
walk the railing on the port side, when a lurch
of tne vessel precipitated him into the James
river, just below Newport News. The unfor
tunate man sustained himself on the surface
for about ten minutes, when be went under,
livery exertion was made to 6ave him, and in
a moment or two more the boat that went to
bis assistance would have reached him. Mr,
Colmony, the clerk of the Yanderbilt, the sec
ond mate, and one of the drowned man's com
Tades, went out in the boat to his rescue.
?Indecent L.ani.1'age.?This morning, Mau
rice Sullivan was arrested for using indecent
language, aud lor disorderly conduct openly
in the street. The witness were a colored wo
man named Ellen Brooks, and two white fe
males. The colored woman was a tenant jt
Sullivan, and was going to remove. Fearing
a breach of the peace, she got a note from Jus
tice Bates to Serg't Cronin, of the Fourth
Ward, asking protection for her. She exhibit
ed this note to Sullivan, and the indecent lan
guage complained of was used by Sullivan in
reference to Justioe Bates, which was heard
by ladies sitting by at the time. Sullivan was

Ik inviting the attention of our friends and
readers to the advertisement of Mr. Phipps'
school, In another column, we are rendering
am essential service to all who are solicitous
concerning the education of their sons. It has
long been the great want of the Distrtti that
the opportunities for the private instruction of
youths have been so restricted. Such success
ful teachers as Messrs. Wight and Hardy, in
Washington, are constantly turning away ap
plicants tor seats: while in Georgetown it is
many years since any attempt has b?en made
to sustain a select family school for bovs.
T-'nder these circumstances, Messrs. Cooke,
Rittenhouse, and other gentlemen of that city,
alter taking great pains to procure the very
best available talent, succeeded In inducing
Mr. Phipps to leave Philadelphia for the pur
pose of establishing a private family school
for their own children and those of their
friends. They have erected and furnished a
neat and commodious house in private groan ds,
and have placed It at Mr. Phipps' disposal for
-the accommodation of such additional pupils
as he may be enabled to receive. And in com
mending this school to those of our readers
who have not made a different disposition of
their sons, we may confidently quote the lan
guage of a gentleman who has had three chil
dren under Mr. Phipps' care, and who, as hav
ing all his life paid particular attention to the
cause of education, may be considered good
authority on such a subject: "I cannot te-ll

my boys from such a tutor. As a Christian, a
