Mr. J. (J. Btuttz and his excellent
company played here bs announced in our
hwt issue, Monday, Tuestly. and Wednes
day nights, to latge and appreciative audi-
euces, uii oi wiiom were oengnieu. m r.
Stutlz has certainly the best troupe that has
yet visited our city.
On Monday night, "The Two Orphans," a
pltv full of pathos, was admirably rendered,
Mini the app.ause with which it was greeted,
proved thHt this play, which is the greatest
sensation of the age, had met with a proper
iccepiaon Dyoilr people. is tun urwin,
who was advertised as "'The Gem of the
Southern stage," played the pa rtof" Louise,
the Blind Gin," and to say that.-she fully
sustained this imiiortant and difTicult char
acter, would not be saying nan enougn. iter
acting was simply spiCDtiiu; ner assumeu
blindness ws carried out so well, that we
oeard a lientleinjn remark that he believeil
she was blind. Miss Lewis enlisted ihe
y in path ies of the audience as soon as she
ippeared upon tne stage, and kept them all
the evening. Vr. Stutlz arioeared in this
play, as the " cripple," and though this was
one oi ine most diincuit cnaraciei's to sus
tain, It was so happily rendered as lo win
for Mr. Stuttz many compliments. The pa
tieuce which he bore the taunts and ill treat
ment of his unnatural mother aud brother,
and his kindoess to tne poor blind girl in
her misfortune, and when at last patience
ceased to be a virtue, and he turned upon
his brother aud struck for the protection of
i. uii.'se, was so admirably done, as to add
fresh laurels to Mr. Stultz's lame as an at
lor. All of the parts of this piece were ad
mirably sustained, and the large crowd re.
turned to tbt irhomes fullv satisfied.
On l uesday evening this com puny played
Uion lioncicaull's great sensational drama,
eini lt d "The Streets of New York." This
piece was replete witli life pictures of pov
erty, vice ami crime, and gave the people
down South au insight into now they do
things in New York, aud we do not doubt
mit a similar drama is enacted in the great
cuy every day. In this piece MiiuS Lewis
tjok the part of Alitla Bloodgood.the spoiled
banker's cnild, whose father sold his soul to
8-ive her from want, missl wis lOOKeu beau
litul, and though we think she appears bet
'er iu a milder character, yet we don't see
how she could have improved upon her ac
ling iu this. Mr. Stintz lully sustained the
tine c.iaracteis that he took. The rapid
c.amges irom Tom Badger, tne Bankers
c ei k, to Tom Badger the returned Caliior
in.111. Hint. In Tnm Kiuluir Ihe Match Ven
der, irom that to Tom Badger the Fireman,
tud from i hat to lorn Iwidger uie 1'o'ice-
mau. showed much itenius. It was impos
sible to tell which Mr. Stutlis acted best, he
did all so well.
i on wetiuesoay nignt Mr. .-si in i a pm eti
I ihe p,trt ol Hamlet, aud a large and api'e-
cia.ive audience graced the occasion, nils
is one of the most difficult characters to
play well, in nil of Shakespeare's writings,
aud one which cannot be undertaken with
imiiunitv. Mr. Ktuttz's a-nlieuce was. how
ever, most agreeably disappointed at his
rendil ion of this character. He has as tine
a conception of the character as any one,
and ne brings out many ot the beauties oi
the play which the great bard has left vague.
If Mr. stutlz would aiuil.v himself exclu
sively to tills piay, he would soon become
another lSoolu. Miss Lewis, as Ophelia,
which is one of the sefiestand most beautiful
characters iu all of Suakspeare's writings,
was happily rendered. Mr. Wolfe, iu tlie
character of the grave digger, was splendid.
v e leel lhal We but eclio tne sentiments
of th-j whole community when we say that
t 'lis troinie Is the best that has ever visited
our town, and we willingly commend them
to the theatre going people every wnere.

day of September. 187b, Edwin Rasok, in
H.eTlh year of his age. The deceased was
born ami raised in Wiiltamsoort. Maury
County, Tennessee, but emigrated to Texas
about six years a&o. He was possessed ol an
unusually goon iinutt, as was evitieuceti uj
his bearing off many a prize while a pupil
at school. He was a devoted son aud broth
er, aud while here with his parents, broth
ers and sisters, expended all his efforts in
their behalf. In Is70. having removed to
Texas, he went energetically to work, and,
notwithstanding some severe reverses, he
accumulated some means, out of which, he
materially assisted his laiisvrs iamny to
move there, where he comfortably settled
them, and where they have ever since beeu
doing well. Some ten months ago, he mar
ried, and ins mauiy nean sweneii wnu mgu
hone ami hriirht anticipations of the future.
But, alas, the blighting damp of consump
tion settled ou his brow, paled his cheeks,
withered his noble form, and handed
him into the relentless arms of death. He
leaves a devoted young wile, affection

warm inenus to mourn ins tniLiiiie.y tieatu.

The Democratic Outlook.
1 1 is onlv two weeks until tlie Presiden-
dential election, and for the benefit of the
few Republicans who allect lo believe ineir
political opponents have not gained any
thing bv the recent electious, we present
some interesting and instructive figures.
At the three last presidential elections
there has leell a stiuare light between the
Republican and Democratic nominees, wilh
110 third candidate to divide the vote. Now
let us see how Ohio, Indiana and West Vir-
cinia went iu Octolier, lsfri, 1S(W aud 1S72. In
istil the ollicial returns in Ohio, stood thus:
Republican, 3ji,'lu: iH-mocrat, itc,f.S' ite-
miblican majority. 51.771. in 1SU5, Republi
can. OlUo-i: ueiuwerai, -i;i,i)Si nepuoiicaii
majority, 1 ,: In It)., Republican, Bhii;
Ddiuocrat, 2"i,7S0 Republiciii majority, 11,-

ty will not exceed six thousand.

iMi: Democrat, isii.i iieniocratic minority
(for Hendricks) 1,1-is. All the rest of the Re-
nublicau ticket, with but one except iou.was
elected; and the ftepublican majority aver
aged 3ju. mocioDer, isio, the Democratic
majority in Indiana is o,...
iu lotH, there was no election for Gover
nor in West Virginia, but the Presidential
vote stood t hits: Republican, 1,151; Demo
crat, 10,f:iS Republican majority, 12,71-1. In
I St is, Jtepuuncan, Lii,ia,; uenioci at, Z2,.is lie-
publican majority, 4, 1 li. 111 lhij, the Ke
tiiiblicans voted lor the Independent Demo
crat for Governor, and so we again give the
Presidential returns: liepubiican, ;e,Jsa;
Democrat, -1','Vii Republican majority, 2,74'i.
in October, ls,ii, the Democratic majority in
West Virginia will reach al least lu.UW. So
certain were the Republicans of carrying
tue state tuey naa manuiaciureo, that in
the estimate prepared and circulated by
their National Lxpeulive Committee early
in the campaign, West Virginia was claim
ed tor Hay. s without any qualification.
With these encouraging figures before
the Democracy, is it any wonder that the
party is elated by the vieioriesalreadv won.
and the prospect of a greater victory in the
near iuturev -souiing out ine grossest mis
management can prevent the October ma
jority in Indiana from being at least dou
bled in November. Williams is not nearly
so popular there as Hendricks, and Hen
dricks' political fortunes hang upon the is
sue of the impending battle. With so much
that is dear lo them al stake, with the eves

of a great emergency, w e observe that Lx-
Gov. Allen, who has hcrelolore beeu regars

has made a stirring appeal to his friends 111

Democrat sinks ail minor considerations
out of sight, and throws the whole weight

the strong aud confirm tue wavering, uad il
Hayes contrives to carry his own Slate next

The cheering signs 111 Indiana and Ohio
are visible along the entire line: lu every
state where there is the remotestprssibility
of Democratic success. Democrats are awake
and active. On the other hand, Ihe Kepub
licaus are discouraged and more or less de
moralized. "The Hot ling vote" is going si
lently and surely toward Ihe Democracy,
and, aided by the Liberal Republican tier-
mans, may be relied uiioii to carry several
doubtful Suites, whose proclivities hitherto

Governor Chamberlain, candidate ior re
election, opposed not only by the Democrats,
lint by a considerable and increasing fac
tion in his own parly, fears that he will be
beaten. According he appeals to the I'eder
al administration Ior the loan of soldiers to
help him intimidate the recalcitrant vo
ters. Having arranged a board oi Stale can
Missel's ol election aud a returning board,
tin? maioritv of wiiose members are candi

thus bv a monstrous perversion of justice
entitled t decide Hie vote iu their own fa
vor; having lurlher managed lhal ot the
ninety-six commissioners ot e.ection in
tlie counties, seventy should be his declared
partisans aud forty oince-nolders who hold
1 heir places by his appointment; having
thus prearranged the count iu his own fa
vor, Mr. Chamberlain now summons Fed
eral troops and Federal authorities lo ar
rest citizens known to ha opjHised to him
in politics. And all this in the United
tates, and under the auspices ot a party
which mica called itscll the pre-eminent
friends of liberty, and some of whose lead
ing members held ihe lugilive slave law to
be unconstitutional because it intent-red
with the rights of the states. Mr. Charles
Francis Adams, 111 a recently published let
ter, warned the people against inn uie rev
olutionary tendencies of the Republican
leaders; was ue lar wrougT A multitude
of respectable citizens, among them all the
Kepuuix'uu members 01 me supreme bench
of tlie Slate, assert publicly tnat there is no
trouble; 110 political violence or lawlessness
i a South Carolina, 'The citizens who have
been arrested have submitted (juicily. This
governor himself has made no jiretense
even uu effort to sub lue lawlessness: he
has done nol lung but issue a violent and
Incendiary proclamation, and sent lor Fed-

the Republican party iu the north consent

a sample of what it proposes to doit it is
continued in power au other lour years?
il so, then the safest, the only sale course
for northern voters, is to turn it out. This
is not Mexico, but these acts of Governor
Chamberlain, this misuse of Federal troops
and Federal power, would, if continued four
years longer, set us a long way toward
.Mexico. 11 it Is grained that the political
parly which happens to possess the Federal
.overmuch!, may march Us soidiet into
ihe Slates for political purposes, then we
have paved the way broadly for general civ
il disorder. If these proceedings in South
