A Nsw SENSATION ON MEETING 8TREHT.- I
Yesterday witnessed the first determined effort to '

have subscribed a sufficient amount to induce Mr.
Teppe to turn his water oarts ia that direction,
and the dust lu that portion of the city was effect
uaiiy squelched. The constant travel of the street
.oars raises probably more dust than the few pass?

THE PBABOET FUND.-At the meeting of the
?Colombia City Council Tuesday, Alderman Wal
Aaec, from the Committee on City Schools, re?
ported a conversation with Mr. Sears, who had
been to Columbia to inquire into tbe management
of the Peabody fund. He said that Mr. Sears ex?
pressed great satisfaction with the management
.or the fund; that tue fund was not intended for
the maintenance or pauper schools, but for the
.support of all olassess and conditions or children.
Alderman Wallace said he Inquired or Mr. Sears
il the Peabody schools were established for the
.?ducation of white children only, and was in?
formed that they were not. He also stated that
Hr. JUlson, State superintendent of education,
bad suggested that if the- city authorities would
.erect a suitable building, the Peabody fond, with
a little assistance from the State, would be suffi -
.clent to edncate au the children ia the city. The
object of Mr. Sears's visit was to confer with the
State and city authorities la reference to the pro?
per handling of the educational rands. Alder?
man Wlgg also gave seme information ia relation
to the matter, and said that the Peabody rand i
had been very Improperly' controlled In the past.
He exonerated the ex-aldermen from all blame,
as fee lund had not been under their control.
CAUGHT IN THE TOILS.-John ?ord, a col?
ored boy, In the employ or Mr. F. F. Chapeau, at
his saddlery establishment on Mee tin g street, was
arrested yesterday and committed to Jail r>v
Trial Jua tice T. J. Mackey, tor robbing bis em?
ployer. Suspicion was aroused by the frequent
loss of money, and John was on several occasions
seen in close proximity to the safe. As nothing
was known prejudicial to him, a snare was laid
by marking certain bills, which, during a tempo?
rary absence or those in the store, were reduced
by one. Ford subsequently lent the bill to one of
the mea who desired to borrow that amount.
Another trial led to the loss or three two dollar
b?ls. . Ford was oharged with the theft, bat in?
dignantly denied the accusation; his guilt was,
however, clearly proved on searching him, for the
missing bills were found m his pocket. A search
of his premises led to the disco very of a number
of stolen articles, Including table linea and other
property belonging to the Mills House. One of
the walters employed at that hotel was implica?
ted as the accomplice and arrested.
It appears that a systematic plan or robbery
had been pursued by the confederates for some
time, as toej had an account at bank, and evi?
dently turned their plunder into ready money as
soon as possible. The exact amounts stolen are
not yet ascertained.

Mrs. Oates and her company, reversing the
usual order of tldngs dramatic in this country, hav?
ing first achiev'Xlan enviable fame in thc "provin?
cial" theatres of the South and West, have gone,
conquering and to conquer, on the ' Metropoli?

Our Academy of Music liabituis Will read with in?
terest the following from the critic of the New York
Now we have a little woman coming with an
old burlesque, who ls not an actress, and not a
blonde, and who has not been putted. Her .bur?
lesque is an old one that everybody has seen, but
she comes for the first time" with the spirit of
American humor in her entertainment, and won
last Dight the tribute of unbounded laughter.
WI.ac was advertised as "The Fair one with the
Blonde Wig" toms ont to bc the old extravagan?
za of the "Invisible Prince;*' but upon this old
thread were sn ung all the variety business which
for a long time has been the sole property of the
min?i rel troupes, and which in the best of them,
such as the Buckley's,came nearer to the embodi?
ment of the peculiar and characteristic American
extravagance than anything ever attempted upon
oar stage. Thc Oates troupe made its appeal last
night unequivocally and boldly to that sense of
the ridiculous which burlesque seems lately to
have overlooked, if, Indeed, lt ever understood
it. Mrs. J. *A. Oates herself ls a diminutive
body, not' surpassingly beautiful, and not even up
in stage business, but she won her audience at
once by the ingenuous, almost childish grace and
vivacity with which she entered into the broad,
rollicking fun of the entertainment, and disre?
garded all the traditional theatrical manouvres
of travesty actresses. Nothing could .well be
fresher and freer than the girlish abandonment
and naive grace which characterized her from
the moment slr; entered. To this most be added
the welcome fact that sha possesses a remarkable
voice for so small a body, and sang not only with
miraculous org in, bat with an amount of culture
seldom Indeed met with on the burlesque
stage. Indeed, la this particular, the troupe
distinguished itself. The solos and chor?
uses were all old and familiar airs, some
of them worn to death years ago; but, aa
though to show that the manner and not the mat?
ter was everything, the latter were given with
full dlstrlbutioi or the parts, and with a vigor
that would astonish some of our operatic pla?
toons. To show how the audience took the humor
of the piece, it is only necessary to say that lt
roared with laughter from parquette to topmost
private box, forgetting entirely that it had seen
the tilings before in the absorbing interest at see?
ing them done more humorously than ever be?
fore. The ene episode of the Boston Peace Festi?
val, in which Mr. Hernandez assumes the charac?
ter of Gilmore, created a more decided and un?
controllable uproar of merriment ihan any?
thing we have witnessed since the advent of
Captain Crosstree at the Fifth Avenue Theatre;
and the subs?quent tricks of the Japanese
produced mu:h the same effect. To sum?
marize, the new burlesque troupe-it ls the
best musical organization of the kind that
has made an appeal to the burlesque-loving pub?
lic; tt hos cut loose from most of the traditions of
burlesque Imported here from abroad, and thrown
itself upon that order of illegitimate and extrava?
gant humor which best pleases the Americans;
and ft has gathered into one triviality all the
mirth-provoking features of extravaganza, and
excluded the leg business and the walk 'round,
its success last night was unmistakable. Better
summer burlesque could not be offered ; and to?
night the theatre will be thronged by those who
have been walting a half year for a new opportu?
nity to laugh.
Even moro complimentary is the Herald, which
Mrs. Oates's troupe ls one of the finest order,
and the performance last evening surprised os.
The ecomlums passed upon the acting of the
members of the company by the press of large
cities through which they have passed, have been
la all cases compllmentary-lnsome even extrava?
gant. We are convinced that these favorable crit?
icisms were truly deserved, and that the applause
the various actors last evening received ls but
Justly due. To Mrs. Oates must be accorded the
honor of holding the flrst position by merit, as
well as by name, In the troupe, and we might add,
upon the burlesque stage. She has the first requi?
site for a successful burlesque actress-beauty of
face and figure. She ls active and painstaking
and of most captivating manners. Uer very
laugh ls contagious and her voice melodious
In the extreme. Of her singing we can
speak in the highest praise. The range
of her voice ls extraordinary. She gives
the lower notes with extreme ease and
clearness, and the higher ones-even the high C
with extraordinary force. It is truly gratifying
to be able to speak of a burlesque in such high
terms, when so many of late have acquired ficti?
tious reputations by mere subterfuge. Mr. J. H.
Chattersen, the tenor of the troupe, ls also possess?
ed of a fine voice, and as he ls yet a young man,
we trust he win study hard te relieve himself of
many defects la the management of his voice,
and thus become what it is capable or making
him-an artist of first-class'ability. The other
artists acted their parts creditably; and we con?
gratulate the manager of the Olympic Theatre on
na vi og produced the best burlesque and the finest
iroupe or performers ever seen upon the metro?
The Standard says :
Mrs. Oates, who, we believe, is altogether new
to this city, sings well and ls saucy-two indis
pensable virtues in the successful burlesque ac?
tress. She makes the footlights her fireside, and
the cupola of the theatre ls the roof-tree beneath
which she ls at home. Her voice is stronger than
it is sweet, and the plentifulness of the songs ena?
ble her to give the audience a great deal of lt. It
is interesting to reflect that Mrs. Oates's ciaims
to merit are not tonsorial. Whatever her attrac?
tion may be, lt ls not capillary, and ir "beauty
draws us by a single hair," we do not care
whether the filament ls brown, blonde or red.

PICNIC OK THE METHODIST SUNDAY-SCHOOLS.
The schools connected with Trinity, Bethel and

The baskets of the party were taken in charge by

was spread, which was vigorously attacked and
speedily disappeared. After dinner thc games
were resumed until near the hour fer returning,

FOR THE BLACK FISH BANKS.-The disciples

accommodation Ls famished.
Died, at Unionville, on the 20th March last,
the Hon. THOMAS N. DAWKINS-a name for many
years connected closeiy with the history of the
State; a man for an his time honored by those
who respected the high qualities 'or which he was
distinguished: beloved by those who came within
the inner circle in which his social and domestic
character shed its brightest light, and over which
the warm inspirations of his heart exercised a
happy, hallowed influence.
He was a man of the State and- Tor the State.
Born and reared amid the historic circumstances
which, fro rivi seo to 1860, trained the mind and de?
veloped the character of those who In that period
came forward to play their part tn life's great
theatre, he entered early upon public duty, and
soon appeared in the councils of the State, tte
representative of those among whom he was
born, with whom he was to live, and by whom be
was borne to his last resting place.
In those connells men were assembled who' al?
ready had achieved reputations-while others,
with him, were entering in the race they were to
run. For him lt was not a mere experiment.
Success had vouchsafed itself with the earliest
exhibition he gave of his powers. And at the
close of the first session of the Legislature of
which he was a member, there came to him the
admiration, respect and confidence of all with
whom he served.
It conld not have been otherwise. His4nstlnct
and purposes were pure and unsullied; his judg?
ment was calm, impartial and merciful. He was
recognized as one who would not sitoop to flatter
or deceive, and who had fixed a standard for
himself In his own high conscient .eus discharge
His style of speaking was calm, addressed to
the reasou of those who heard him; and so entire?
ly given to the consideration of :hlngs. that lt
never provoked those asperities in. debate which
result from, the reference to persons.
And with bim triumph in debate was the tri?
umph of truth, not of the speaker. Appreciative
of the good opinion of those who were near him,
he had no desire for mere compliment. Vf hen
truth and justice were vindicated. In that his
pride was gratified.
He was merciful and kind In hts judgments of
men. However he illirered-and he lived in times
when differences in opinion produced bitter feel'
logs-with him such differences never affected
his feelings towards or judgment of others. For
he was eminently charitable-to be so was with
bim a catholic spirit.
With his high ability-with hts higher virtues
he commanded the respect or all. From his seat
in the Legislature he was transferred to the
responsible duty of State counsel, as one of
the solicitors; and no one ever, In the exercise or
Its duties, more faith Tully performed the 'arge
functions of his office. In that office, refusing to
recognize the unworthy distinction of success in
thc conviction of the accused, as the inducement
ror his conduct, he prosecuted when hlB even
tempered reason satisfied him that justice, public
justice, required the punishment of the offender.
No popular outcry could force him to convict
against his own sense of right, still less influence
him to desist, if to proceed was to him the course
Such qualities pointed to him ns one who should
receive that highest of all trusts, the commission
of a judge. And when lt came to him he accepted
it as the evidence of the confidence of his State.
Never did the Judicial robe fall on the shoulder of
any one more fitted to bear it worthily. And In
the brief career allotted to him In this depart?
ment, he Justified, in every manner, the selection
which had been made.
How, In the convulsion which followed the close
of the war, he, with the other judge3, was re?
moved, ls familiar to all.
To say that he chafed under this blow ls but to
say that he was a man-and a man of the State
and a man of the State who had discharged Its
highest trust, without fear, favor or affection.
His State-the State he loved-the State that
honored him, had been struck In the blow under
which he fell. And lt may be given to all tonn
derstand how, while the hands or those In power
tore from him his robe, their feet trampled down
the laws he bad lived to administer. He was a
judge; he had outlived the law; what then was
To him thenceforth lt was In that home, where
the kindliest affections clustered around all who
were under Its shelter, to those who in that home
were its household deities, who made lt the cen?
tre of a refined hospitality, a temple In which
there was constant sacrifice to all the virtues
that elevate and adorn.
It would be a moral sacrilege to Bay more. To
think of that home, of those who have been there,
of that one so true tn her devotion to him, still
there, and then or him dead and of him no longer
there, ls to picture to ourselves a change then
which none can be sadder. Who can forget the
smile, the grasp, the welcome that greeted ea^h
friend or guest who crossed the threshold of that
Deep, too deep, the Iron had entered his heatt;
but no complaint fell from him. To the discharge
of his private duties he gave all his care. To pro?
vide for those he loved, to prepare them for his
loss, to leave them so guarded that they would
not suffer, became his great and consuming care.
And he died In thc effort; died true to his con?
victions or duty; died as he had lived, beloved,
honored and respected.
Some-perhaps not many-yet live who wit- .
nessed his advent, watched his course, and still
Pvc to have seen him as he passed from the sight
of mau, and sunk Into rest. Their testimony will
more than sustain all that has been said. He was
too good a man to wish to die before the time
that was appointed. But when that time came;
when he had guarded against trouble those whom
be dearly loved, he was ready. The State in
which he was born, In which his highest and
purest purposes were associated, had ceased to
bc. As one of its ministers and honored sons
he had seen it trampled and borne down. And
with lt fell his hope-his pride-his life.
Tribute of Respect.
At a special meeting of the Fellowship So?
ciety, held on Wednesday evening, May 18th, the
following preamble and resolutions were unani?
mously adopted, as a tribute or respect to the
memory of their late president, Hon. RICHARD
To commemorate the virtues of the dead, to
linger fondly over the recollections of past friend?
ship, and to drop the tear of affection over the
graves of departed loved ones, belong to thc finest
reelings or our nature. Revelation teaches that
we are born to die, to be raised again to everlast?
ing life, and that our existence herc ls only pre?
paratory ti that better and noble;' state of being
where there ls no death-when the loved ones,
removed but not lost, shall be reunited, to part no
more rorever; and however consoling this may
be, and mo.st assuredly ls, to the stricken heart,
yet nature must be indulged in pouring forth her j
lamentations In the sad hour of bereavement, i
Nor ls this Incompatible with the teachings or
Christianity. Jesus wept over the grave or his
departed rrlend, and well may we be permitted to
mingle our tears over the grave of one whom we
loved and esteemed so much.
Our friend and companion, the head of our as?
sociation ror many long years, has been taken
from us by the relentless hand or death. RICH?
ARD YEADON, president or the Fellowship Society,
has presided ror the last time over our rrlendly
and social meetings. He was born on the 23d or
October, 1802; was admitted a member or the So?
ciety March 4th, 1829. or which his grandrather
and rather, each bearing the same name as him?
self, had been members, the latter having served
two years as president.
The first year arter his admission he was elect?
ed junior warden, a marked evidence by the
members or their high appreciation or his talents
and ability. In March, 1833, he was elected
senior warden, In which office he servod until the
death ?r the lamented president, Colonel Charles
John Steedman, in 1833, when he was unanimous?
ly chosen to supply the vacancy; and from that
time to the hour of his death he filled the respon?
sible and honorable onice of president, to which
he was annually re-elected, comprising a period
ot thirty-two years.
To say he was devoted to thc Society, ls to say
but little. He gave his time, his money, his splen?
did talents, his untiring energy, to the promotion
of Its Interests; and the welfare of the distressed
widows and orphans of his deceased brethren was
ever dear to his heart. Indeed, he was always
ready to manifest his sympathy for the afflicted,
and his tender and loving heart delighted to min?
ister to the wants of the destitute. While engaged
in the absorbing and important duties of his pro?
fession, or answering the call of his country by
devoting his energies to the honest and faithful
discharge of the public trusts committed to him
as a legislator, he always found time to answer
the cry of distress, and "his hand was open as
day to melting charity."
His brethren of the legal profession have spoken
of his great ability as a jurist; of his faithfulness
and indefatigable exertions as an advocate; of
his forensic eloquence and legal acumen;.of his
earnest love of truth and justice; and his pastor
has borne testimony of bis love for the church of
h's fathers, and of his zeal In her caus". Let it
be ours to bear In mind his deeds of charity and
benevolence; his love for this Society, which ani?
mated him to the very close of a long and honor?
able life; how much he added to the social enjoy?
ment of our meetings by ."ila fund of anecdote,
and his promotion of good "fellowship," and to
moarn over the loss we have sustained by his de?
mise. Yet "we sorrow not even as others who
have no hope," but anticipate a reunion in anoth?
er and better world, being well assured that
"them alBO which sleep In Jesus, will God bring
Resolved, unanimously. That by the death of
the HON. RICHARD YEADON, the community gene?
rally have lost a learned jurist, a ralthful advo?
cate, a true patriot and a devoted friend to his
country; the widow and orphan a kind and mu?
nificent friend; while the Fellowship Society has
been deprived of a beloved president, who pre?
sided over their deliberations for a generation,
who was entitled to and received the affection
of the members, and whose memory we shall
ever cherish with the proudest recollection.
Resolved, unanimously, That a page of the Min?
ute Bool: be dedicated to his memory, and that
the gavels of the officers and the portrait of our
deceased president be draped in mourning until
the next anniversary.
Resolved, unanimously, That in token of our
deep and heartfelt condolenece with his bereaved
widow, a copy of these resolutions be transmitted
to her. CAMPBELL DOUGLAS,

KANAPAUX.-Died la this city, May7tnT?87o!
Mrs. MARY KANAPACX, wife of John T. Kanapaux,
and daughter of the late James White, aged 34
years, 3 months and 26 days.
We have seldom been called upon to record the
departure from our midst of one more endeared to
the social circle by every attribute of friendship,
affection and regard.
In all the relations of life she was devoted, self
sacrificing and sincere, and by a censtitutional
vivacity and cheerfulness, illuminating where
ever the shadow of care had obtruded the most
obscure recesses of that little world, to which her
labor of love was, by the ordinance of Providence,
Shrinking from all notoriety, with a retiring
modesty characteristic of her sensitive nature,
she bloomed like the humble violet whose fra?
grance reaches us. though we see it not, but
which is caught by each awaiting zephyr and
wafted beyond the confines of la humble bed,
as Incense sweet to Heaven.
With those endowments most calculated to
strengthen the silver cords of love and render
the void occasioned by her loss one which time
can never HU, we can only derive consolation
from the assurance of her eternal gain, and the
prospect of a happier reunion in that brighter
world to which her undeviating faith and Chris?
tian virtues have ever pointed us.
Cheered also by the knowledge of a more spirit?
ual association, we reconcile ourselves to the
separation of this temporal bond, and though we
are here made to feel "there are links which
muBt break In the chain which has bound UB,"
there ls a golden cord of spiritual affinity and
union which binds us more closely to the depart?
ed objects of our love, for "there ls no death
what seems so is transition."
Sorely tried by the afflictions and sufferings of
life, she bore.her allotted cross with meakness and
cheerfulness, her only anxiety being that she
might fail In her appointed task; and we feel
that for her, death had no terrors, as he had no
sting, for nono has he called more ready to re?

Uberallty and pubUc spirit, which hos hover yet
been made la vain by the Fire Department of
Our Engine, worn and injured in your service,
demands immediate and extensive repairs. Our
Hose, after faithful use for five yean, ls now un?
equal to the performance of Its duty, and there ts
a balance due for the purchase of the Engine,
still remaining unpaid.
The pay from the city has been greatly reduced
? and can contribute to no more than the current
expenditures, and the resources of thc Company
otherwise are eatirelr Inadequate to meet these
necessities, or they would be cheerfully devoted
to them without a call upon your aid.
We are willing aad anxious to devote to yonr
Interest all our zeal and all our service, without
recompense, and we only ask you to assist us to
do BO with that measure o? efficiency which the
magnitude of that interest demands, by enabling
us to keep up our Engine and apparatus la pro?

to look back upon the long years of its service,

^THRICE ARMED !-THRICE IS HE
armed who keeps within reach of his hand a
speclflc that at one and the same time will
strengthen, regulate and purify his system when
enfeebled, disordered and corrupted.
Such ls the three-fold operation of HOSTET
TERS STOMACH BITTERS, and hence the great
superiority of that standard vegetable restorative
over all medicines that are merely tonics and
nothing else. The effect of the ordinary astrin?
gent tinctures and extracts upon the bowels ls
disastrous, and upon the depraved blood or bile
they produce no beneficial effects whatever. In
dyspepsia and liver complaint all the fluids and
humors of the body are more or less infected, and
the bowels are often badly constipated. An un?
modified astringent-quinine for instance-docs
Infinitely more harm than good in such cases. In
HOSTETTER'S BITTERS, on the other hand, the
stimulating and tonic elements are qualified with
aperients and antiseptic Ingredients. The finest
laxatives and blood depuren ts In the vegetable
kingdom are Intermixed with those of a purely
invigorating nature, and under the operation or
this admirable combination, the three Important
processes of Invigoration, regulation and puri?
fication go on together. The rapidity with which
the disordered organization returns to its natural
condition, nnder a course of the Bitters, ls due to
this cause. Every disturbed function of the body
ls favorably affected by the various properties of
this comprehensive and well balanced prepara?
tion. As a general rule the bowels are more sub?
ject to irregularities, and the fluids more liable to
become vitiated In spring and summer than In
winter, and hence the Bitters are especially valu?
able as a spring and summer alterative, correc?
tive and invlgorant. At all seasons where the
seeds of intermittent fevers infect the air. this
healthful vegetable elixir should be taken as a
protective medicine. may20-6D*c

Farine Company, bas been placed on our table at
different times, and proves to be one of the best
most nutritious and easily-digested of all the fan
nag now In use. It ls palatable to the taste, li
lighter aud less compact than any other farina,
and hence better adapted to weak stomachs, tc
dyspeptics, to invalids, and all persons of frail
constitutions. In cases where tapioca, sago, bar
ley, corn starch, malzena and similar articles arc
beneficial, the Sea Moss Farine ls not only a sub
s tu ute, but has advantages which neither of them
possesses because the main Ingredient of the
Moss has been considered by medical men foi
many years as having Invaluable remedial pro?
perties. It ls particularly recommended for pec<
toral affections, scrofulous complaints, diarrhoea,
