NATIONAL THEATER. Mr. Barry Sullivan,
gentleman with an extended and enviable reputation
In England and the Knst, mado his debut in this city
last night, at the above establishment, as "Itlcho
lieu." We saw but tho last act, together with
last scene of the fourth, and, of course, must judge
his Impersonation from only a part of tho perform
ance. He evidenced a sympathy with his author
which was Intellectual purely, seemed to have a cor
rect appreciation of the character he portrayed,
generally a just conception of the part; but
thought his representation of tho wily Cardinal,
what wo saw of tho fourth act, waa too young,
enacted with a littlo too much force. The last
howover, was fine, Indeed wo do not remember
have seen it equaled, certainly never surpassed.
was called before the enrtain twice by the plaudits
tho audience, which was exceedingly largo for an open
ing night, and, tn its character, discriminating
appreciative, Mr. Lefllngwell, as "De Burradas,"
playod finely, as he does always ; bnt Miss De C'ouroy,
as "Julia," was only fair. To-night Mr. Sullivan
will appear as " Beverly," in the "GameBtor."
By the way, we would respectfully suggest to
management, that they replace the side-lights to
' stage. The shadows now all full downward,
making it almost Impossible to catch the facial
and tliis Is particularly truo if ono Is
from it to any distance. Mr. Sullivan has
excellent face, and wo have no doubt would appear
a much bettor advantage under a stronger light.
WOOD'S THEATER. Again Mrs. Hllsler showed
the "Fearnought" through the magnificent grottoes
of the Rhine; again her nymphs danced and
around her and her beloved ; again "Schnapps" emp

S54- A lady, whose name we oould not learn
fell in a fainting fit on Pearl street, yesterday,
and injured borsolf considerably, bhe was
taken to the office of Dr. Malone, on Broadway,
whoro her wounds wore dressed.
County Commissioners' Office. The Com
missioners, at their session yesterday, passed
orders among which were two, for $30 each,
to Judge Flinn and Geo. P. 0'Donnell, foi
their defonse of Ward on the Treasurer for an
aggregate amount of $160 85.
STJ-Mr. Collins, of Hamilton County, has fa
vored us with a copy of his speech in the llonse
of Representatives against all laws to establish
an uniform ratejof interest, which presents the
arguments npon that sido of the question in a
strong and convincing light.
Fines Collected by thk Polich Court.
The fines colleotod by the Clork of the Police
Court during tho month of Fobruary, amount
in the aggregate to $684 91. Of this $463 611
was collected in oity cases, and $221 22 in eases

named Mary Lee, and located in the rear ol
the Broadway Hotol, wag entered night before

mantle ornaments of considerable value.
eT Any person knowing the whereabout
of Samuel Gronnan, who formerly resided with
his parents in Oakfiold, Perry County, in this
State, and disappeared somewhat mysteriously
some two years since, will confer a favor upon
his father by leaving word at this office.
f"Some fellow, whose meanness was little
as his impudenco was great, entered tho house
of a poor apple-vendor, on Vine street, night
before last; but they hearing the noiso, called
for the watch, and ho, by passing out the back
way and returning by an alloy, walked direotly
past the watchman and escaped.
Mabeiaqes During February. During the
month ending yesterday, one hundred and
ninety-eight marriago licenses wore issued
the Clerk of tho Probate Court. Matrimony
appears to be a mania in the city, and yet al
most all acknowledge that Montaigne was rigli'
when he said that those who inhabited the
county wished to be exiled.
Newspaper Thieves. Our subscribers must
look out for newspaper thieves, for we have
evidence whioh we can not but look upon
conclusive that a pretty extensive system
pillage is going on against "The Press" in lev-
eral parts of the city. If any of tho rogues
detocted by the injured parties, the latter
will please report their names at the office.
Shooting with intent to Kill. A lad,
not over seventeen years of age, named Jeffer
son Pierson, was imprisoned in the County
yesterday, having bcon sent hero from North
Bend, in default of $200 bail, for shooting with
intent to kill another lad named Patriok
MoDannoI. Ilia trial will take place in
Court of Common Pleas at the next torm.
Spbinq. Yesterday, balmy as May, oloscd
the reign of Winter. The sky was blue as
which overhangs the vale of Arno; while
gentlest zephyrs, kiBsing velvot choeks,
blushes on them lovely as tho sun on
paints, when June, with smiling face and glee
ful stop, glides over verdant meads. Our weary
life seemed not itself while Phoebus' shining
beams encircled ua, and, like the loving hands
of her we thought an angol once and know
angel now, caressed our burning oheek.
Marguerite Gauthier, we "do so love
Spring, for she smiles alike on the eamelia,

Stupidity. A man,whose name we could
loarn, was drowned aomo days sinoe, near
residenoe of J. Scott Harrison, at North Bend,
and from what we could learn, purely through
tho stupidity of a couple of men who
quietly by and aaw him atruggle in the
until life waa extinot. He had become entan
gled among bushes, in a swamp where the
waa but two feet deep, and called to a
who waa near by to assist him j but he, instead
of doing so, ran for help, and returned
another person who waa atupid aa the first,
while they gated npon the poor fellow,
drowned. An inquest was held by a mngla
trate in the neighborhood, which resulted
verdlot of accidental drowning.

sibly the last-mentioned gentleman may have
represented a practlsor of the "drop game."
One of the most remarkable features of the
evening was tho singular appearance of the
orchestra, which resembled a cross between the
"Old Folks" and the "Druids." Of the many
fine dresses, the mask of "Worner" waa proba
bly the best sustained, being played to tho life.
No reference whatever to our friend, the pianist.
We noticed during tho evening a representa
tion of the "Last Man" (of his tribe), a solitary
Indian, without comforting squaw, tomahawk,
or any of the appurtenances of warfare or en
joyment. "Ye Injun" waa some, at least
were we informed. One gentleman whom
noted with a wooden box situate on his shoul
dors, represented as nearly aa possible a "block

ACCIDENT TO A WASHERWOMAN. A pOOT

atreot, while engaged in hanging some olothea
upon a line which waa stretched across a porch
fell to the pavement beneath, a distance of
about fifteen feet, breaking her collar-bone, two
of her ribs, and otherwise injuring herself
quite severely. This accident la all tho more
aad from the fact that ehe waa dependent upon
hor own exertions for a livelihood, and her in
juries, although not likely to prove fatal, will
confine her to hor bed for some weeks, during
which time, of eourso, she will be unable to
perform her usual daily labor. Life is full of
misfortunes ; and, strange as it may seem, they
always happen to those who aro the least able
to bear them.
