THE MOBIJLE THEATBE
A Scene Not oh the Bills.
Ysuakee Doedle Hissed.
Indignation of Army OMcei-s.
From the Mobile JRcgisUr and AdtertUer
we take the following article giving a state
ment of an unfortunate occurrence at the
"Mobile Theatre, on "Wednesday 'and' Thurs
day nights of lastTveek, and the comments
of the editor upon them:
The Mobile Theatre was the scene of a
very unpleasant occurrence on Thursday"
evening an occurrence which would have,
been avoided had there been a proper under
standing of the true jelations of position and
feeling between the citizens and the military.
Our readers will bear ua witness that from
the moment that we resumedsthe editorial
pen of thi3 paper, after the defeat of the
Southern cause in the field, we have been
the steady .and earnest advocate of 8ubmi(u
sion to the decfec'of the warj and Have held
that both wisdom and duty . enjoined a re
newal of allegiance to the Government of
the United States. Having taken the oath
ourselves, we have been faithful to it. Wc
did not, nowever, take an oath of allegiance
to any parry,- especially such a party as the
Eadical Bisunionists, which is now opposing
the noble efforts of the President to restore
tranquility to. the country, by re-uniting its
broken fragments under one protecting gov
ernment. This party is not less the
enemy of tho1 North than it is of the
South, for its policy looks to ravish
ing from tho lip3 of the North the fruits
of that triumph of arms which it paid
for in hecatombs of lives and mountains of
treasure that fruit was a restored and un
broken Union. When we attack tho policy
and principles of this obnoxious party, let
no Union man, more ardent than -thoughtful,
mistake our zeal against these enemies
of the American people, for a vestige or
taint of the old "Eebel" leaven. It is in
this same spirit of an earnest desire to
smooth the way to a re-union of a broken
country in heart as well as in political in
terest and fact, that we approach the subject
of the unseemly and unnecessary row that
occurred in the theatre. It opens an op
portunity to say to the officers of the United
States, and especially, to the younger gentle
men among them,-who aremore likely to be
carried. awajr from sound judgment by the
ardor of their feelings, somethings that have
been on our mind, and which, perhaps, tltey
have not thoughtof. "With few and rare ex
ceptions, the liospltable doors of Southern
houses have not been opened to these offi
cers. "With' ample leisure on their hands,
which young men love to devote to society ;
feelingthat, as gentlemen residing in Southern
communities, belonging to an honorable pro
fession and the soldiers of a powerful
Government, they are entitled to the hospi
table civilities of the citizens, they a?e natu
rally not pleased tt an exolu'slon, which they
incorrectly attribute to a rebellious insincer
ity in Southern professions of allegiance to
the Government. Now, gentlemen officers
we address ourselves only to the gentlemen
among them, for we have long since found
that reason is thrown away upon all who are
smitten with the Radical mania reflect a
little. You hold illat, if -our people keep
aloof from yon socially, or show some signs
of restivenew when "Yankee Doodle" is
played for their entertainment at tho theatre,
they give tokens of disloyalty to the Govern
ment, and, in your opinion, their rebellious
spirit is not quenched, and requires a little
more chastisement and bayonet argument.
Now. as to the first, do you remember that
there ia scarcely a aoraestic circie in mis
land, in which your presence would not pul
sate a. painful reminder on bruised hearts
not vet sercd bv the healing hand of time,
that the place of a loved son, brother, hus- J
banu, or lover, or a revereu iauier, uie amy
of that household, was made vacant by tho
power Qf your armsr JJo ypu suppose
because tus people is conquered, and
has shown every manifestation of
a sincere and earnest purpose to re.
turn to ard be faithful to the renewed alle
giance to which it has sworn, that therefore,
a ... .,11 1 .
the natural leenngs oi me numan neart
have been eradicated? Though beaten in
the great political conflict of thirty years
brewing, and at last submitted to the arbi
trament of the sword, do you forget that we
are vet men and women ? "We should bo
angels to feel otherwise. But if it vjcre only
the remembnn,pp of kindred bloodshed, tho
difficulty we mention would not be insur
mountable. There are others, weigntier
still. Let us ask any candid officer of the
United States army, " in what capacity are
you here? Is it in that of a soldier of the
United States, on United States soil, as you
would be in New York or Philadelphia ?"
Were it so, the doors of Southern hospitality
would fly open to you. But are you not
here tP keep "wa,tph and ward" over a
conquered people i Arc yp.u no.i sumc

Fnj'a Expose at, the Copper lastitutoi or1
A few hundred tJersons assembled at the
Cooper Institute, on Saturday evening,, to
witness the promised expose of the trick; of
tne JLavenporta by Mr. Jb.ay, a gentleman
who acted as .agent for these notorious
brothers, and accompanied thfem over a
large portion of their tour through this
Mr. Fay .3 a young man who wears, hia
.hair in the prescribed spiritual fashion, and,
sports a light taoustachc. He prefaced his
performance at tho Cooper Institute with a'
short lecture, explabdne hisi'ekiect. which
was, .he .said, io, expose oaa othe greatest
irauas and humbugs ot the age. While
connected with the Davenports he had, toi a
great extent, believed in the genuineness of
their feats, but bv and by their impositions
became manifest to him, and ho now desired
to show the world the devices on which the
Davenport brothers have built their repu
tation. Mr. Bafun, of Newark, ifew Jersey, and
Mr. Arad Gilbert, at No. 293 West Nine
teenth street, were, chosen from the audi
ence as a committee to ecc that everything
was properly managed. Mrs. Fay, the wife
of the lecturer, was, appointed to .superintend
the proceedings. A huge bos: wasplaccd on
the platform, inside of which were placed, a
number of bells, a dram, a tin trumpet, add
a tamborine. After these articles had un
dergone a close scrutiny by the committee,
who were perfectly satisfied ofthe legitimate
character of the cabinet, Mr. Fay took off
his coat, entered the box, and requested . the
committee to tie him, hand and foot.- This
they did, and Mrs. Fay closed the doori Ip'
a short time the bells were, heard to ring,
and, amid the plaudits of tho audience, Mr.
Fay fctepped forth divested of his fetters.
He again entered the box, the doors were
closed, and when opened, after a few mo
ments, he was found securely tied, the spirits
having performed the operation, he said.
He then performed nearly all the feats df
tho Davenports. While the hands of the
lecturer were tied to his knees with a stout
cord, the bells were runs, the drum was
beaten, and to all appearances the lecturer
had the full use of his hands, but when the
door was opened, lo! the victim was se
curely bound. He complained of tho hea
and said the spirits had been taking him to
France. On leaving tho box, the commit
tee untied his hands, and he went around
among the audience cxhibitinc the knot by
which ho was fastened. Ho entered the box
again and was again tied up by the spirits;
Mr. Baffin entered with him the next time;
a handkerchief being thrown over his cyei
tq obtain a negative condition of the elcJ
ments, or darkness. W'hcn the door -wa?
opened Mr. Baffin was discovered in one
end of tho box with his head crowned witll
the banjo and drum, while extended at th$
other lay Mr. t ay, bound hand and foot in
the moat helpless condition.
The audience demanded from Mr. Baffin
an account of his experiences. He said that
he felt hands tipping different parts of hii
person, his beard was pulled, and his crani
um was struck several times with the drum
The flour trick was then performed to thq
satisfaction of all presont, alter which came
the expose, The lecturer declared the main
cecret of the tricks to be the netting ono hand

witnessed during the evening could bo easily!

The National Intelligencer thus puts the.
existing relations between cotton and the;
finances of the country:
The cotton question involves the financial
question. Few financiers in the country he.

the national credit maintained, unless the
cotton fields of the Southern States are again
reworked for a supply of the staple which'
has been, and may now be again, our chief
medium of exchance with foreien nations.
It has heen suggested, indeed, and perhaps)
bv some santruine and credulous persons be
lieved, tliat our gold and silver mines are;
to totally supersede cotton in our foreign
exchange It is a vain expectation. Our
cotton lields are our richest mines. Cotton
is specie, and that chiefly is to enabla pa to

ySew i ork Bankers and Broker?, whosi de
tection some, months since in forging gld
checks and embewling the fuads of the firm
with which he waa connected, created such
a sensation in that city. The following par
ticulars of hia arraignment and conviction
ivill prove interesting:
Saturday bci2 the last day on, which Re
corder Hoffman, the ."Mayor elect, occupies
his' seat on tha bench. Edward Bv ICetchum
was arraicned for sentence. The prisoner
entered, .the iCoart-rooai oi the opening of
the court at half-past eleven, o cloct, in
charge of officers, and he waa accompanied
by his fatherMorris Kctchum, and by two
or three of his brothers. Hi counsel, cr-
Judgc Allen, and the .counsel of the firm of
iveiciium a to ana oijineir assignees, were
also' present. Young Ketchnm's'faee was
very pale, and there -were darl. circles
arqund his eyes which-appeared to bo some
what bloodshot. The Tnusclea of hia face
were. firm, liowevcr. and he exluhited, no
tf ejjidation, thorgh the general expresslort of
ms leaiurey gnowea tnnt ne enuurcti iiuicu
beside him in the . .CBiirt-roam. HIi" grief
was marufesitly intense his teatures were
pcrfectlrricid. The Tounffcr sons of Mor
ris Ketchum were visibly affected.
The court room was crowded by spectators.
including a few. ladies. Among the persons
were many well known, citizens, and several
lawyers of note.
Kx-Judec Allen applied for a uostnonc-
mcnt of sentence, and based his application
on an affidavit-of Mr. Bans', counsel for the
aslgnees of Ketchum, Son & Co. lie set
lorth that some twelve suits had been 'com
menced against the firm,, involving Over'four
millions of dollar while a litigation had
been commenced by them, affecting interests
to the amount of fourteen millions, and in
all these suits Edward Kctchum was a neces
sary, material, and in some cases an indis
pensable witness. A similarapplication was
made by Walter Phelps. The application
was refused by the court, and the prisoner was
placed at the bar.
ihinnir tho delivery ot his sentence, no
change could;bp observed, in the prbpncr,but
as the term 'of .his imprisonment . was men
tioned, he clutched the 'railing convulsively.
