house Is one of-the moat superior edifioes in
the world. It laoka nothing needed in
completeness of aooommodatlon, for seating
itnmonae aadltories. , The stage and aoenei
are fltted up in a style uniurpaaaed In the

The eipease of all. this has been enormous,
the expeotatton being that by regular attend -

Now, oultared, high-toned, artists) gentlemen
and fadiea of rare talent, of professional excel
lenoe, of high personal oharaoter, are aotlng
nightly 'obv thi boardi. The enaotments are
great lessons, the representations are great ex-'
hlbitlons, such as merit overflowing houses.

theatrical now upon ua. j
Minis'
Counterfeits—An Outrageous Nuisance
People demand of the istuers of bank-notes
to take, at once, 'the" most efficient steps to
save all classes of society from the aggravated
and ruinous' Imposition of counterfeit notes.
The, oppression is well nigh unbearable. The
wages of the week are sometimes sw ndled
away from the mechanic by having' some
sooundrel to give him a counterfeit bill In
ehange. ; The widow, . the market, 'woman,
have baen robbed; qf their peals by having
pasted upon them a well-connterfeited bank
note. Are the laborers to be pluoked for, ever?
Must a daily examination be made-1 by an, ex
pert of one's small accumulation of bank-notes
to determine if a "little joker" be not in our
fellsta? There Is a way or ways to get rid of
this tmpoaltlon...;

engravers for extra work wonld insure a plate
ihetoould not besueoeesfullyoounterfflted, and
which' the' engraver would repiaoe if counter
feited.' ' We oommend to' the General Assembly'
to grant no charter fort new banka,unlsea with a
proviso that the elroulatlon shall be returned
to the bank lf the plate be counterfeited.' The
Board of Control should take some steps to
hare dirty bill withdrawn' from circulation)

the paper represents value wonld induoe decent
people to oarry about "them the loathsome',
offensive bills'so opmhtohly in liae.', ' ' "
The best Convention of the day would be
one from all the States to consult and to take

Geniral. Scott'S Valit. A correapo ident
of the Alia-Caiiornia aaya that Gen. Soott'i
valet is no InooBsidsrable personage, altnongh
he is a foil to hit master one is a giant, the
other a i dwarf. ; He dresses the General;
but zes around him with a wisp ; dusts him off;
seises his hat, and brushes up the General's
few remaining gray hairs) wipes the, nap of
the hat, replaces the same, and the whole duty
is conducted in.sllerksa. t These attentions are
repeated three or fou! times a day, and the
General take the same as a matter of' course.
He never replies or thanks it is a matter of
oourse and the little tiger, with his gray mil
itary cap and garrote collar, struts around as
important an" individual as any one on board.
Though as Louis XIV said, no man oan be a
hero to his own valet, it seems a valet of a
hero may be one also in his own estimation.

Extraordinary Performance in a Parisian
Circus.
OaUgnuni, Parle, desoribes a most extraor
dinary performance which is now nightly at
tracting orowds to - the Cirque Napoleon.
Three trapeses, or pleoes of wood about five
feet long, suaponded from ropes attached to
the extremities, bang from the roof of the
droui, one in the center, and the others at
about forty feet distance at eaoh side. A
young man named Leopard ascends to a small
platform arranged for him above the plaoe
where the muslolans sit, over the pasaage for
the horaea into (he ring. The trapeze neareat
to him belog put In motion, he eatohes it as it
files up, and then, after balancing himself
carefully, he seises it with both hands, and
darts Into open space. After flying to the
utmost extent of the ropes, he eomes back
with the recoil, and alights in safety on the
spot from whioh he started. When be has
done this two or three times, to show that the
exeraiae is mere sport to him, ho again
launohes himself Into mid air, but not this
time to return as before; for when the trapese
has reached its farthest point, he suddenly lets
go hie hold, and borne on by the impetus Im
parted, aelsee the teoond trapete, whioh In
its turn carries him forward to the length of
lit rope, where he ageta quita it, springs to
the third trapese, and, borne forward by It,
alights on another platform at the opposite
side of the oirous, and in face of that from
whioh he had started. The performer strain
teisas the third trapese, and flinging himself
iurw-.ru, m Deiore, nioa 10 11s lurtnest limit,
and then quitting It, springs to the second,
whioh, however, be does not leave, but per
mits It to fly back toward the third, then ae it
descends, slnoe his baok la still toward the
trapete which he quitted the moment before,
he all at onoe let go with both hands, and
turning In the air seises It again In time to
meet the third, by catching whioh he again
reaches the platform. Once more ascending
to the platform above the orchestra, he springs
forward hanging by the hands to the trapess,
and quitting It as It approaches the end of ite
range he gives a someraault In the air, and
seizes the second.' trapese as he descends.
When it is considered how truly brain, eye
and muscle, must respond to each other in
these performances, the whole exhibition must
be pronounced one of the most extraordinary
that has ever been seen of ita peculiar de
scription. ,
i, A .Bsautiful Littli CMBaYMAri. Dr. Cum
mlng, whose last publication, "The Great
Tribulation," Is at present, ereating an ex
ciUment in the literary world, is thus.de
sotlbed In a late English review: .. .. :
"His singularly handsome person, his bril
liant flow of poetie thoughts, his striking tal
ents, end his burning seal, combine to make
him one of the most interesting speakers of
tbs day. I Mr. Camming Is very small in per
son, not exceeding five feet four or five inobes
In hight, with a slender and graceful figure.
His fees is one of the moat beautiful I have
ever seen, for he is altogether too diminutive
to be called strictly handsome. Hie hair te of
a jet black, with a eoft, waving ourl upon it;
hia complexion resembles alabaster, with a
deep damask color ; hie forehead is high and
finely 1 formed, and his eyes are concealed by

Our oldest State, in other years cur flrat,

NOON DISPATCHES.
From Washington.
WabhisotobY December ( In the Senate)
yeaterday, Senator Trumbull, of 111., made a
lengthy speech, chiefly in defense of the Re
publican party, In the course of whioh he aaid
that "the declaration of Mr. Seward was noth
ing more than the view expressed by Wash
ington and the Southern men ts 1788." 1 He
alto quoted the language of Jefferson, that
there Is nothing more certainly written in the
book of fate than that these rsoet should be
free. ' "
It would be seen then that the Idea wss not
new; it had Its origin In Virginia year ago,
and the idea foreshadowed by Jefleraon, al
though not a part of the creed of the Republi
can party, he treated it might hereafter be
come Its ereed, that is, the deportation of the
free negro population from' the country. He
trusted tbe Republican party would make it a
part of their creed to prooure some region of
country, not far distant, to which the negro
population could bs taken.
He feared the consequence of Jefferson's
propheoy unless this wa don. In favor of
this movement he quoted from a speech oi
Henry day advooatlog colonisation. In con
clusion Mr. Trumbull ssid: "It seem to me
Impracticable to transport the great population
to Africa. Let us obtain a country nearer
home and to show tbe sympathy of the North
for the people I represent, we will contribute
liberal means to relieve the country of this
free negro population and of all the slaves
that shall be voluntarily emancipated ty
planting them In some contiguous country to
this. ' - - - . - , ,
"I hope that will become the policy of the
Republican party; I hope we may Join hands
with the South, and Instead of reproaching
eaoh other, inatead of saying anything to
create a misunderstanding in tbe different see
tions of the Union, we may come together as
onr fathers stood together, shoulder to sbouldsr,
to establish our independence; that we may
come together, side by side, as brothers, adopt
ing a polloy whioh shall eventually rid ns or
this Institution of slavery the only one that
threatens our permanent prosperity." ' -

" Mt Fathbs is ths Bonds or Christ t My
spirit has been with you from the first. ,. My
prayers ascend for you, hour by hour, and
they are full of thanksgiving. I thank God
for you thank him that he bas created you,
that he bas put his spirit within you, that he
haa sustained you to vindicate the honor of
his name, to kindle la the hearts of this people
the fires of freedom, and to keep the faith of
mankind in the divine origin and destiny of
the race. When I learn to apologise for Lafa
yette's coming to mingle In a quarrel whioh
was not hia when I make defenses, on the
plea of insanity, for Him who looked down
from the shining court of Heaven noon the
slaves of sin, and hasted to their deliverance,
then I shall make excuses for you. Do not,
my father, shrink from -"the dark valley."
It Is but a short way over by the road you
travel. Remember, He went by the way of
the cross, a long and weary way, where the
protracted agonr from Divine wrath caused
Him to cry aloud. Remember the great 00m
pany ef martyrs whose souls have been re
leased by long bodily torments, and remember
it is still mete that' "one man should die for
the people." I would that I could
be with you, that I might have the great pri
vilege of walking In that light whioh shall as
suredly shine down apon your pathway to the
gates 01 me new Jerusalem. t)ir,l "would

While residing at East Hampton, on Long Is
land, Dr. Lyman Beeeher was returning horns
one evening from a visit tooldDr, Wool worth.
Seeing, as he thought, a rabbit by the road
side, a little ahead, be said: "They ar rather
tender animals; If the fellow sits still till I
come up I think I could hit him with these
books," a goodly bundle of which he had in
his handkerchief. Hit him he did; only It
proved te be, note rabbit, but a skunk. He
returned to bis family, in. anything bat the
odor of eaneity. In afterlife being asked
why he did not reply to a scurrilous attack
made on him, he answered: "I discharged a
quarto onoe at a skunk, and then I made up
my mind not to try It again." ; ,4 i ( ., i

correspondent of the Philadelphia Preu,
speaking of the1 opening of Congress, says:
"Siokle was not present when his name was ,
called, but entered before the roll was gotten .
through. He walked placidly round the oenter
row of seats and dropped into a seat on the
third bench.: He looks well, and has grown
his beard so as to make a tolerably effective
disguise. He was the only solitary man In
that large -assemblage.' '-He was not spoken
