Tboom, The Esoott-Mlranda English Opera
Troupe, who oegan an engagement at the
National Theater on Monday evening, and
were severely out justly cntolscd ty the daily
press on the following morning, had a rupture
yesterday and dissolved. This oan hardly be
regretted, as Luoy Esoott Is nearly all the at
traction of the troupe, who, though they might
succeed in the provinces, oould not possibly in
the metropolis, Much nad been promised for
them, bat they could really do nothing as it
deserved to be, and as we are accustomed to
see it done in this city.
Illicit Patirmitt. A few days ago, a
young woman, whose name we withhold, went
before Justice Crane, of Delhi Township, and
made a complaint against a teiiow named
James Curry, obarging him with being the
father of her child, which, unfortunately for
both mother and babe, was born outside the
bonds of wedlock. The story of the girl was
o straightforward and simple that the Justice
was impressed with its trntb, and he therefore
committed the defendant In the sum of $300,
for his appearance to answer a charge of illicit
fatherhood before1 the next term of the Court
of Common Pleas.
A Diad Babi at tbm Piarl-btbskt Station

the Pearl-street Station-house. She had an in
fant in her arms, apparently six montha of
age, pcor, pale and puny, which died a short
time after the mother had been incarcerated.
Coroner Carey was called upon to hold an in
quest npon the body, but the evidence adduoed
before the jury was not of the most satisfactory
oh&raoter. A verdiot wss rendered of death
from exposure and negleat.

Polioi Coanr. Twenty-three oases were
examined yesterday morning before Judge

portant :
A man named George Pape was arrested
several days ago for stealing a quantity of tal
low from tbe Butchers' fat-rendering estab
lishment on the corner of Liberty-street and
Western-row. The oharge was grand larceny,
but npon this he was discharged, while an in
formation for petty larceny and embezzlement
was filed against him. He pleaded guilty to
the latter oount in the indiotment, but the
former was dismissed. He was fined $30 and
oosts, sentenced to the dungeon of the County
Jail to be fed on bread and water fjr a term
of ten days.
'A 'woman named Mary Thompson was

One of thla kind has been for a considerable

Extensive Robbery on Sixth-street—
Four Hundred Dollars
Silver Coin Stolen.
' Lieutenant Watkins, in company with some
of the members of the police force, yesterday
afternoon arrested the .following persons:
Jane, and Mary Lawson, Ellen, Caroline,
Josephine, Edmond and William Cross, and
Samuel Sherrick, npon a warrant issued at the
instance of , a man , named Kingsley, who
charges them with grand larceny. The cir
cumstances of the robbery, so far as we could
learn them, are as follows:
It appears that Kingsley arrived in the oity
from Indiana about a week ago, and took
boarding at a nonse on Hixth-rtreet, near
John, in wbirh the above parties reside. He
had In his possession a oouple of small trunks,
one of which he placed in the oharge of Mrs,
uross. teuing; ner tnat it contained four hun
dred dollars in gold and silver ooin, and some
valuable papers. . , , . , ...
Ueatterward took the trunk, thinking that
he would leave the oity, oarried it to his room,
and placed it under nis bed. Home disap-
pomtmei "a business oausea hitn to be de
Wined lor ger than he expeoted; and when be
returned to his boarding-house, one of the
females ot tne establishment met him at the
door with the astounding news that bis trunk
had been broken and perhaps rifled.
Upon examination he found that the fact
had not been misrepresented, and that the
money had really been earned on. He imme
diately caused a warrant to be issued for the
arrest of tbe parties, who were committed to
the JN in tfl-street station-house to await an ex
animation, this morning, before Judge Lowe.

cotemporary an artiole appeared criticizing
somewhat severly, thongh not unjustly, the

i Attimftid Boeolart. -Yesterday morning,
apout xonr o ciook, some persons made i
felonious attempt to enter the aueensware es,
tablishment of J. F. Funk, on the north-west
obrner of Westorn-row and George-street.
They, however, did not seem to be highly
skilled in villainy, and made so muoh noise as
to awake some of the inmates of the building,
who, in their terror, were so noisy as to frighten
the burglars. , In every respect the affair w
quite a blunder, and what mighthave been an
arrest was simply an escape. :
I A Rum Stiahboatmah Finio. Yesterday
morning a party consisting of five men and
four women were crossing the ' river In a skiff,
and just at a time that the steamboat Sam
Kirman was passing them the mud-valve was
opened and the steam not only spattered them
all over, but, we believe, scalded the faces of
pne or two of them. They immediately came
to the city, and caused a warrant to be issued
by Justice MoFall for the arrest of a Joshua
B. Thorp, captain of the boat, who after an
examination was fined $10 and oosts.
. Bor Dsowksd A boy about twelve years
of age, named William Bergman, while at
play upon a fiatboat, at or near the foot of
Fifth-street, yesterday afternoon, accidentally
' fell into the water and was drowned. Some
persons who happened to witness the aroident
ran to the scene, and after dragging the river
for about an hour, succeeded in recovering the
body, which they removed to the residenoe of
his parents who Jive in the neighborhood.

Monetary and Commercial.
The closeness of the Money market, heretofore no
ticed, continued undiminished yesterday, Cnfreucy
being scarce at all the banking houses. ,
Tbe expected ease has not jet been felt, owing In
part to the liberal return of bank-notes for Xxchange
to the adjacent points. The demand for accommo
dations is generally far in advance of the menns to
meet it In tbe regular and irregular quarters.
Eastern Xxchange was still scarcer veaterdav than
on Monday, and dealers did not desire to sell to out
siders at ii prem., aa they sometimes paid that price
across the counter. Conalderable Kxchauge is ex
pected here in a day or two which will make tbe
market easier.
New Orleans Exchange conld have been sold to a
large extent, yesterday, at 1 prem. if any amount
could nave neen ootainea. The market is bare, .wiu
dealers pay prem. treeiy.
Business was active yesterday In Third-street.

XXXVIth CONGRESS—1st SESSION.
WASHINGTON, January 10.
SENATE. There was a full attendance,
Several memorials and, petitions' were pre
sented. Mr. Johnson presented a petition in favor
of the Homestead Bill. '..: r1
Mr. Pugh's resolution coming np, Mr.
Green made a speech assailing tho doctrine of
squatter sovereignty, as advocated by Douglas
and Fugh, contending that the Territory pos
sessed no sovereignty, and recommending the
cessation of agitation and . obedienoe to the
IVod Soott deoiaion, and without concluding,
he gave way to a motion for an Executive Ses
sion, after which thcS'.ttito adjourned; .
HOUSE. Mr. Gartrell said that no blame
oould attaoh to the Democrats for non-organization.
The scenes enaoted hero-are but the
beginning of the irrepressible oon!liot,of whioh
they heard so muoh; a oonfiiot between op
posing forces; a oonfiiot between the North' and
South. If war is to be waged on lifteen States
of this Union, if they are to be denied the
solemn guarantees of the Constirntion, if the
property of the Sonth Is to be taken and sur
render refused , if tbe prinoiples of, the Repub
lican party tue to be maintained, and their
purposes accomplished in the S nth by Con
gressional or other oontrivanoes, or by un
friendly legislation' to bo doprivod of "fall
participation In the common territories be
longing to the people of the United States, he,
for one, was free to confess that the Honse
had better not organise, if you Kepublioans,
he said, are determined to continue your ag-
it you wui not stay your nanus; u you are
dotermined that this oonfiiot shall oome, then
I warn.you and those whom yon represent, to
beware the' dangerous ground on which you
stand. The South must hare, their; full.niea
sure of constitutional rights. - : . , ,
They , will enforce the demand to be treated
as political equals, otherwise the Union will
be divided Into as many parts as there art)
States on tbe national banner.' He proceeded
to show, first, what rights the Southern people
enjoy as to slavery; eecond, that these rights
so clear, sacred and high, are not only threat
ened, but boldly, daringly and willingly us
sailod by the Bepublican party.. - He would
announoe the solemn truth, disagreeable as it
might be to his constituents and those of many
others, that if aggression continues the people
of the South will be compelled, by every prin?
ciple of justioo, honor and self-preservation, to
disrupt every tie of the Union, peaceably, if
they oan, toroibly u tney must. .) .1 .
Mr. Haskin, during his speech, asked' Mr;
Oartrell whether, if. the doctrine of Judge
Douglas as to olavery be acted on In" the Ter
ritories, he would therefore claim the right to
secede from the Union. ' '" 1 ' '!,
Mr. Gartroll wished to know whether Mr.
H aek in was the ohampion and expounder iof
the KepuDllBan dootrlnsv , ,lt,, ;i, ;,r
Mr. Haskin said he .was not.-;. on the cou'
trary he was an antagonist to tbe Ropnblioan
dootrine of intervention in the Territories for
the prevention of , nlavory, as he was to the
new fangled 8outhem doctrine of interventionfor
the protection of slavery, "t rn..t, ...
; Mr. Oartrell replied that that was a jadioiaj
quoslion for the Courts.
Mr, Haskin wished to know if that it to be
Inserted as anew plank at the Charleston Coh

Mr, Gartrell replied: If you want lb know
what we will do, you can make your arrange

come as a delegate, but if you come as a. Re
publican, we will simply rule you , out.

men as to' the prevention or protection

and Boteler lor Speaker ' 1 '
Mr. Gartrell replied that he did. ' He wanted
no better evidence of Mr, Haskins Republl
canism than that be voted for Mr. Sherman.
Mr. Haskins said:. If voting for Mr. Sher
man made me Republican, Mr. Gartrell on
tbe same principle, mnit be an American.
- Mr. Gartrell replied that that opinion 'wag
already exploded.' It was not necessary
waste the time of the country in expending
mrtnertime on it." 1 :..K . .,
Mr. Keitt explained how U was that a man
voting for the Aepablioan,. nominee thereby
became a Republican. ' '
Mr. Adraln, explaining, said the Northern
Democrats were true to the Union and would
not permit it to be dissolved if, a Repnblioan
were elected President according to the forms
of the Constitution. r , .
Mr. Hickman explained his former remarks,
and said that gentlemen seemed to congratu
late themselves that there is a divided North.
, Will the Northern Democratic representa
tives ooinolde in the opinion expressed by Mr.
Gartrell, that the eleotion of a Repnblioan
President, though constitutionally put in the
Presidential oh air, is ipto facto cause of seces
sion T If this was demanded, he said there
was an undivided North in favor, of maintain
ing tbe Constitution at all oost and at'every
hazard. The Union-must and will be main
tained." 1 1 i'i i' .:; -i ,.", '.', ) """' ''
