of the U?o of bis limbs. Be had a colored boy ac?
companying him, who gratifies his wishes to go

ent hotels in the city, but havijg no accommoda?

may be ncgnttui 'ted that .-he chose for the opera to
be porformed last night oue which would show to
thc lull her own skill, anil In which she could bo
seconded by artists so able and so cons ient:ou< as
Petrilli, tarli, and the well-nigh i- compa'aVle Brlg
noli. M'lle Durand played Rosini last night for the
first time, and so mark-d a new epoch in her artistio
life. But the day should be distinguished by a white
stone, for the performance throughout was in every
way satisfactory. M'llcDuirandaathcfairben?j?aa?re,
is the fi:st of whom to speak. Doubtless the peculiar
circumstances under which thc performance was
given took.away th? ncrvousnt ss incidental to a first
appearance, and lout additional piquancy to her
manner, and a gnat r fluency to her voice.
But. however this may bc, it ls certain that
her Rosina \r-. far superior to her Isonora, and
even lo her Norina.. The actirg throughout was
charming, and the gra ad aria Una Yocepoco fa was
sung in a manner which ls seldom equalled in these
dogene.-ato days. In the "6?1 ging lesson" scene
that in which prime donne exercise their vocal
chevaux de battaille-ll'ile Dui and sang Eherl's Erho
Song with exquisite neatness ari? clearness, added
to a graee of manner which we do not atlempt to de?
scribe. Applause and M'lle Cu ra nd became sy?
nonyms, and, from ber first note to ber last, the
audience thundered out th?ir approval whenever the
Signor Briguoli sang as only a thorough artist can
sing, using his noble voice with consummate skill,
and delivering the grace'ul music of bl3 rolt with au
even fascinating effect.
Signor Petrilli, who on tho previous evening bad
shown himself to be a thoughtful actor, was thorough,
ly at home as Figaro. Tho versatile Barber laughed
and sang, and jested and intrigued, fairly twinkling
with lifo and spirit, whi'e Zarpo al faccofuT? was s:ing
with a force and yet with a rapidity of ennnciatlou
which few can equal. Figaro seem* to bo the favorite
role of Signor Petr, lb, and iu none, so far as wo knott,
does bc appear to greater advantage.
Signor Sarti and H0nor Localclii entered with
spirit into th-lr resi ec ive i art?, and in every way
made (be most of them.
Ibo audience, we arc glad to say, was a full and
fashiouaole one, ann doubtless, but for the circum?
stance cf tbe St. Cecilia ball occurring on thc samo
evening, would have been even more c owded.
Briguoli and his company have our best wishes for

No. 1 .-Public Plumier.
IO THE EDITOR OF THE NEWS.
I desire to present a few faotsut publb in?
terest iu regard to George W. Clark, late army sut?
ler, and now Acting Mayor of Charleston. They
will serve to illus rate thean of public, pluuder, and
explain, in some measure, why tho city government
requires seven hundred and ten thousand dollars to
meei the expenditures of the city lor the current
The Acting Mayor reo-nfly 6old to thc city all thc
spike, used in the plank road, at eight dollars per
keg. when thoir p'ice, in open market, was six
dollars per keg. He is tho purveyor lor all the ctty
institutions, lura slung, Iran his store, all thc
meal, flou*, bacon, salt, oil, liquors, i.e.
These articles are paid lor by th', city at rates far
above thoso chirped by ordinary dea ers, a'tbough
of the most interior quality. Iho shipmasters at
this port roported to a high government official,. bat
the food issued to the patients at our Marine Hospi?
tal was iaforior and unwholesome. An investigation
was made, and the flour, meal Sad moat wero lound
to be utterly unmerchantable and uusound. It was
shown by the phy-iciau of thc Marine Hospital, that
the:0 article- wero purchased from tho Acting
Major, the city, of ourse, paying tho hijhest prices
Tbe Acting Mayor recently had his premises ou
Calhoun-stre-.t Hntio I and whitewashed, and tho
wotkmen wore all paid by tho city. He and his co
pirtners have absorbed all the city contracts, like a
huge sponge. One of the \cting Aid Tnion furnishes
all the lumber, another the lime, and another the
brick ; while tho Acling Mayor, who is a universal
genius, sells a little ot everyihing to the city, from a
barrel of Sour to a dozen ancient and unmerchant?
able eggs. Is it not a violation of law and public
decency that the Mayor o." th s city should be at the
same time its chief purveyor ? <
Ho is ex o?ci? the guardian of the funds of the
eily, and should be ..above suspicion;" yet this man,
as a member of the Comm ittee on accounts, audits
his own account-, and as Miyor draws his checks
upon the city treasury to pay them. No wonder that
his "regard for law" will not permit bim to vacate
his seat on thu demand of the Republican Mayor
elect. A CITIZEN.
