THE ACADEMY OF MUSIC.
A New Way to Pay Old Debts.
If Philip Massinger ls not, as som? critics in?
sist, next in rank to Shakespeare, it is at least indis?
putable that he is one of thc very oost of thc old
English dramatists. He wants delicacy of humor,
but he is vigorous and broad in his conception and
j delineation of character. His representations of
! society abound lu traits of keen observation and
independent thought, and his serious passages
I have a lofty melancholy, both or imagery and
feeling- as well as peculiar grace and melody of
expression. His "Maid of Honor" is occasional?
ly played, but "A Kew Way to Tay Old Debts" is
thc one comedy of Masslnger's which holds Its
place on the stage, and by which he is generally
known. In this comedy "Slr Giles Ovtrrcach" is
thc central figure, and thc exigencies of thc stage
require that thc other characters shall be made
wholly subordinate to the irascible knight. This
has always been a favorite part wita the leading
actors on the English stage, and they, and "Phillp
Massinger, a stranger," lind in Mr. Warner a
worthy companion and Ct representative.
Mr. Warner last night was thoroughly at home.
Warmiug to his work, and brushing away thc
rust of disuse, he played with even more than his
usual energy, while iii his impersonation tl: -re
were the same evidences of study and thought?
ful care which marked his "Shylock" and "Riche?
lieu." lu thc last act his acting w|j[> startling In
its intensity and force. And he was well sup?
ported. Miss Eldridge (Margaret) entered
thoroughly 41110 the spirit of her part, whose
changing humors enabled her to display
to advantage the versatility of her powers.
"Justice Greedy" was given to Mr. Parker,
one of thc main-stays or Hie company, who por?
trayed with grotesque Torce the roiblcs or the
gluttonous oflicial. Mr. Wood made a capital
"Allworth," and Mr. O'Neil played Wellborn with
a care and point which could not easily be ex?
celled. Mr. Ryan threw into his impersonation
of "Marrall" his own queer humor, anti no more
need bc desired. Taken altogether, thc perform
ance or "A New Way to Pay Old Debts" was thc
most satisfactory or the week, and thc audience
showed their appreciation by loud applause, and
by calling Mr. Warner and Miss Eldridge before
As Mr. Warner came belorc thc root-light i the
applause grew louder still. When it had subsid?
ed, he said that lt was hardly lair to call upon
him arter such a play to make a speech, Tor be
was very much in the case or old Mother Hub?
bard, who "found her cupboard bare," for voice,
he certainly had none. In a few graceful words
he returned his ,.:anks for thc generous manner
in which the Charleston public hail greeted his
first appearance among them, and, in con?
clusion, said that he was a Cosmopolitan, and
might, in two years time, bc an American him?
JRichard III. (^S*
To-nlght Mr, Warner will appear as the "Crook
back," in Shakespeare's tragedy or Richard III.
This part has become highly celebrated In Eng?
land rrom its having been fitted by excellent per
rormers, and this has led to a well-rounded ad?
miration or thc piece itself. The character or
"Richard" 13 clearly drawn in the last parts or
"Henry the Sixth," which contains two or his
most significant soliloquies. Of him, Schlegel
says: "Richard, as well as Iago, ls a villain with
lull consciousness." His dclormity ls thc ex?
pression of his Internal malice, and, perhaps, in
part, thc effect or lt. He considers it as an In?
iquitous neglect or nature, which justifies him in
taking his revenge on that human society Hom
which lt ls the means or excluding him. Hence
And this word love, which graybeards call di?
Be resident in men like one another.
And not in me. I am my sei r alone.
Although "Richard" ls thoroughly acquainted
with the blackness or his mind and his hellish mis?
sion, he attempts to justify himself by a sophism :
the happiness of being loved Ls dented to him;
what, then, remains to him but thc happiness or
ruling? His ravorite amusement ls to ridicule
others, and he possesses an eminent satirical
wit. He ban a contempt ror all mankind, and is
confident of his ability to deceive them. In hy?
pocrisy he is fond of using religious forms, as ir
actuated by a desire or profaning tn the 6ervlce
rf hell the religion whose blessings be had in?
wardly abjured. These arc the main reatures or
"Richard's" character-or him who lives a mur?
derer, perjurer, tyrant, and dies the death or a
hero. The accomplished tragedian who distin?
guished himself In the "Merchant of Venice,"
and In Hamlet," will win new laurels in "Richard
On Monday night "Othello" will be played, and
we understand that Mr. Warner, during his re?
engagement, will be supported by some new ar?
rivals as well as by the present company.

QORGHUM SUGAR AND SYRUPS.
As thc period is rapidly approaching when
Planters in our low country must decide npon
what crop they will cultivate thc coming season,
and notwithstanding the continued disaster to
cotton crops from the caterpillar, many are still
inclined to continue thc cultivation of cotton
some even thc sea island-while others arc deter?
mined to substitute short cotton, honing from thc
earlier maturing of the latter crop that they may
escape destruction from thc caterpillar. Should
thc coming season, in Its earlier period, prove as
unfavorable for the development of the caterpil?
lar as the past, their hope of success maybe re?
alized; but it may prove that the coming season
may, In Its earlier period, be wet, and very favor?
able to the propagation of the caterpillar, so that
their ravages may be just so mnch earlier os to
destroy the advantages obtained the past season,
for the difference of time In maturing of the two
crops. At any rate, there ls no doubt that the
cultivation of either long or short cotton on the
seaboard is attended with great risk. With these
views, may lt not be well for Planters to look into
some of the facts and claims of SORGHUM as a
crop? This crop can be planted early in March,
and requires probably thc smallest amount of la?
bor to mature lt of any crop known, much less
than corn, and being so hardy a plant, that lt can
endure without material injury both drought and
wet. If planted in March it will be ready for cut?
ting and working into Sugar and Syrup in July,
and thus in the middle of thc year will enable ulm
to get a return for his labor. This is a matter of
great consideration, especially when Sorghum is
cultivated in connection with other crops, as it
would furnish him with means to work up his
later-maturing crops. From thc disturbed politi?
cal condition of Cuba, and the injury and destruc?
tion of the sugar crops as a result, there ls no
doubt that our supply of sugar aud molasses from
that source will be very much curtailed. Should
this be so, the price of these articles must greatly
As to thc yield per acre, this will depend upon
the quality of lands. Land capable of producing
without manure ten to twelve bushels of Corn per
acre, will give from twenty-five to eighty gallons
per acre of Refining Syrup, and if desired, yield?
ing from Ave to six pounds of Sugar, with a resi?
due of Syrup per gallon. That capable of pro?
ducing twenty to thirty bushels of Corn, will
yield one hundred and thirty-five to one hundred
and fifty gallons of syrup. The use of sulphate of
lime, gypsum, as a manure, at thc rate of two
hundred and fifty pounds per acre, from experi?
ence, will almost double the product, giving at
thc same time a yield of from twenty to forty
bushels of Seed and a large quantity of excellent
Fodder-the Seed as a grain being almost equal
in value to Corn as a feed for Horses, Cattle, Ac.
and when ground up as Flour, Bupcrlor to Buck?
Any further information on this subject can be
obtained by applying to Mr. JAMES G. CART, who
has been appointed our Agent, and will be pre?
pared to furnish the pure Iniphee Seed and ma?
chinery. PASSMORE A WILHELM.
rp HE WATT PLOUGH TRIUMPHANT!
This PLOUGn ls now the leading Plough of the
Middle and Cotton States.
Among thc hundreds of testimonials we have
from practical Planters and Farmers, we would
call attention to thc following extract from a let?
ter received from Colonel li. G. LOCKETT, of the
large planting firm of Jordan A Lockett, dated
Albany, Ga., November 27, 186*?
"Before closing this letter, I cannot refrain from
expressing my sincere thanks to you for the in?
vention of thc BEST PLOUGH NOW Iii USE. It
ls the delight of thc negro. Besides doing the
best work that I have ever seen any Plough do, lt
runs with more ease to thc ploughman, and the
draft to thc animal ls lighter than any Plough l
have ever used.
"Your Plough has already become a necessity
to mc, and I would feel ruined without lt. I am
satisfied we have saved, annnually, thousands of
dollars In mules alone. It Is the Cheapest Plongh
I have ever used, of any kind or description, and
I am anxlons to bring, If I can, to the notice of
my fcllow-plantcrs, this most valuable Plough."
Colonel Lockett commenced using these Ploughs
in the spring of 1868, and now has more than two
hundred and fifty (260) of them on his plantations.
Wc have testimonials as emphatic from leading
planters in North Carolina, South Carolina, Geor?
gia, Alabama and Texas, bot this will sufilce for
thc most Incredulous. ll
During thc present fall, this Plough has taken
Premiums at Eight Fairs held in Virginia, North
Carolina, South Carolina and Alabama, and re?
ceived thc Highest Ratings at the Great Field Trial
In Pennsylvania, In August last, when more than
Fifty Dur?rent Ploughs were tested.

A GLORIOUS CHANGE
That any sick maa survived thc treatment

that human beings arcTvery hard to kill.
Tho lancet, calomel, cantharides and drastic pnr
gatives were then the order or the day. The phy?
sician played into the hands or the apothecary,
and thc unfortunate patient was drenched morn?

When you are exhausted by overwork of head
or hand, and feel the need of something invigorat?
ing, don't drink whiskey or any intoxicating
thing, whether nnder the name of Bitters or other?
wise. Such articles give Just as much strength
to your weary body and muid as the whip gives
to the jaded horse, and no more. Alcoholic stim?
ulants are Injurious to nerve health, aud are al?
ways followed by depressing reaction.
DODD'S NERVINE AND INVIGORATOR
ls a Tonic and gentle stimulant, which ls not at?
tended by reaction. What it gains for you it
maintains. When lt refreshes body or mind, it
refreshes with natural strength that comes to
slay. We are not recommending teetotalism in
the Interest of any faction; but long and extend?
ed observation teaches ns that he who resorts to
the bottle for rest or recuperation, will find, as he
keeps at lt, that he ts kindling a fire in his bones
which will consume like the flames of perdition.
Turn from it. Take a tonic that will refresh and
not destroy. DODD'S NERVINE is rorsalebyaU
Druggists. Price One dollar. See book of certi?
ficates that accompanies each bottle.
