Stone's Statue or Hancock. It will be
recollected that during the rear 185G, Congress
passed an act appropriating the sum of $10,000
for a marble statue of John Ilnncock, one of
the signers or the Declaration of Independence,
and awarded the contract therefor to Dr. Ho
ratio Stone, of this city. Dr. f-'tono has just
completed this statue, and a magnificent work
of art it certainly is. For four years he has
been steadily employed thereon, and the result
of his labors is a statue of which any man might
well be proud. It is seven feet in height, and
represents Hancock as he is in the act of ad
dressing the members of the Federal Congress,
after the actof the Declaration had been passed.
It is the speech in which be is endeavoring to
impress upon the minds of the members the
importance of the step they had just taken and
the necessity of concerted and united action
that speech in which he says, referring to the
bold manner in which his own signature had
been affixed, and in reference to tne large re
ward that had been offered for his head, " John
Bull may read that signature without specta
cles. Let him double his reward." The statue
has been visited by large numbers during the
past day or two, all of whom have been lavish
iu lis prune.
It will be placed in the interior of the Capitol
in the conrso of a few days.
Dr. Stone has also just finished a beautiful
marble monument for senator Foster, of Con
necticut, representing the guardian angel and
the rewarding angel guiding the mother and
her three children, as they are ascending to
heaven on a cloud.

of the most interesting character. Their hall

Vincent's Asylum, corner of 10th and G streets,
have opened a soup room for the poor. Soup

The Injured Painting. The injured paint
ing in the rotunda of the Capitol, " The Em
barketion of the Pilgrims," by Wier, which
was injured by the falling of a piece of timber
from the dome above, is now under the hands
of the artist, who says he will be able to repair
it so that the defect will not be seen. A tem
porary structure has been erected around the
painting, in order that the artist may carry on
nis work without disturbance.
An Exciting Scene. Quite an exciting
scene occurred in the Theatre on Monday night
as " Our American Cousin at Home " was being
played. While tlio panorama of the Hudson
was passing before the audience, a view of
West Point was presented. Lord Dundreary
(Mr. Sothcrn) asked what place it was; Miss
Shaw answered, that it was the place where
American officers were made, where our Major
Andersons came from. At this answer a lew
hisses were heard, but in an instant the cheers
of the audience drowned them ; the gentlemen
cheered, and the ladies, who are ever true to
their country, showed their patriotism by
waving their handkerchiefs. In the mean time
the orchestra struck up that patriotic tune " the
Hed, White, and Blue," which added to the
already exciting scene.
Diiess Dhii.l. Captain Allen's new compa

al Church," near the City Hall, on Monday
night. Fifty-two members made their appear
ance in the neat uniform of the company, and
made quite an impression ou the spectators.
It is expected that this corps will parade on the

astonished at the proficiency and appearance
of the company.

The Sandwich Islands. On Monday eve
ning last, an interesting and instructive lecturo
on this subject was delivered by Rev. V. D.
Collins, in the Fifteenth street Presbyterian
Church, before a very large audience, accom
panied by some excellent music by the CJioir,
The lecture embraced a great variety of mat
ter, in the way of coral and volcanic forma
tions ; natural history, geography, ancient re
ligion, and missionary efforts; condition, hab
its, sports, and employments of the people, and
graphic descriptions of the craters of the cele
brated volcano, Mauna Loa, lava Btrearas, kc.
As the houso was completely filled, the re
ceipts were quite large, which are to be expend
ed for the benefit of the Church. The audienco
was made up, for the most part, of the most
intelligent colored people of this city; and in
dress, demeanor, and atteution, were highly
creditable to this class of our population.
The Church lurchers over one hundred mem
bers, possess a fair edifice, a small organ, and
n stated worship, and should be encouratred by
the Christian public. The Pastor is Rev. B.
S. Tanner, an educated man. Mr. C. has prom
ised to lecture again at an early day,
IIianwAT Robbert. Lato on last Saturday
evening, as a negro man, belonging, we learn,
to a farmer named Hill, of Prince George
county, Md., was reluming home from market
In a wagon, when but a short distance from
the Capitol, was stopped by three white men,
who demanded from him the monoy he had re
ceived for his produce that day in market.
Upon refusing to deliver, a cocked pistol was
placed at his head by one of the ruffians, who
threatened to blow out his brains unless he
immediately forked over the " chink," which so
frightened the poor fellow that he delivered
over the money some $10. The rascals, not
satisfied with the money they had obtained,
also carried off a lot of groceries belonging to
his muster, which were in the wagon. No
arrest.
Highway Robbery on Pennsylvania Ave
nue. At a late hour on Monday night, as Mr.
John Monohan, a workman at the Navy Yard,
was walking along the Avenue, near the corner
of Seventh street, lie was approached by a large
man with a heavy cane, who, without any pro
vocation whatever, dealt him a severe blow,
felling him to the earth, and then robbed him
of a pocket-book containing about$20 in money.
Though severely injured, Mr. Monohan followed
his assailant for some distance, but finally lost
sight of-him. He thinks, however, that he
would be able to identify him.
The Threatened Attack on mi CAriTAL.
Captain Goddard, of the city police, was before

Wo desire to call attention to the appeal to
be found in our columns from Company A, of
the Union Regiment, for n little material aid, to
assist them in creditably equipping their com
pany for activo service. We hope our citizens
will promptly respond, particularly as the sum
asked from each is so very small.

General Scott received an anonymous commu
nication the other night, notifying him that an
attempt would be made to poison the horses at
tached to the different batteries now here, in
order to render that arm of the service useless.
Arrested Again. On Monday afternoon,
Arthur G. Smith, who was some time since
discharged from the Insane Asylum on the tes
timony of the faculty that he was not insane,
was rearrested by Officer Dow, his mother and
two of his brothers alleging that his conduct
was of such a character as to renew their fears.
He was taken before Justice Johnson, who re
quired him to give bail in the sum of $G00 for
his appearance at court. Messrs. L. Norton
and D. Dailcy became his sureties.
A Stabbinq Cask. On Monday night two
men named John T. Davis and Cornelius Iloylo
got into a political discussion, on New Jersey
avenue, near K street south. They soon came
to hard words and at last to blows; but were
soon separated. Subsequently they encountered
each other near the same place, and renewed
their altercation, when Davis drew a knife and
cut Boyle severely on the chest. Davis was
soon after arrested by Officers F. S. Edelin and
Joseph Z. Williams and taken before Justice
Cull, who, after a patient hearing of the case,

dollars to answer before tho Criminal Court.

her store.
John Quill, colored, was tried and acquitted
of the charge of arson, in setting fire to a barn
belonging to John Ddancey, near Tenallytown,
on the 8th of November last.
J. P. Cannon, indicted for stealing a five dol
lar note from a man named Rolf, was then tried ;
but tho jury had not rendered a verdict when
the court adjourned. This is a case growing
out of the confidence game we noticed last
week.
William T. Sullivan was then tried for rob
bing the store of Mr. J. II. Simons of about
$250 worth of clothing,
Mr. Simons testified to his store having been
robbed, and to the articles stolen.
John Starr, who is being used as State's evi
dence, stated that Sullivan had told him and
Luckett about the store, and that they ought
to rob it. He pointed it out to them about ten
o'clock on tho same night of the robbery, and
went out towards Mrs. O'Dwyer's. Luckett and
witness went to the store about twelve o'clock,
and pushed a panel out of the door ; they then
uulocked the door and went in. They took the
goods and carried them to Mrs. O'Dwyer's.
Some four or five days after, the witness and
Sullivan went with the goods to Baltimore.
Mr. Gittings took them over in his buggy. Part
of the goods were sold for about $40, and the
balance given away. As for Luckett, he did
not know whero ho had gone ; ho had heard
that he was in South America.
Mr. R. T. Gittinjjs testified that he took them
to Baltimore in his buggy, and that they had
a large salt sack filled with something along
with them, but he did not know what it con
tained. They had hired him to take them
over."
The case was then given to tho jury, who re
turned a verdict of not guilty.
William T. Sullivan was then placed on trial,
charged with breaking into tho store of Mary
Conroy, and robbing it of a quantity of goods;

Georgetown Correspondence.
Georgetown, Feb. 5, 1861.
The funeral of Mrs. Washington, widow of
the lato Hon. George C. Washington, who died
so suddenly on Sunday night, of apoplexy,
took place this afternoon, and was followed by
a large concourse of friends to Oak Hill ccm
ctety, where her body was interred.
The grand masquerade and fancy dress ball
came off last night; although slightly attended,
it was made up for in enjoyment, for every one
seemed to have gone there bent on fun. Pro
fessor Wagner's band discoursed those waltzes,
polkas, Ac, so characteristic of the German:,
in a manner that he can well he proud of. I
noticed a great many of our principal Yankee
citizens there also; among the most prominent
were Messrs. W and D , W. II. E ,
Dr. K , Lieut. L , Sergeant W ,
Mr. W , all.of whom mingled in the giddy
dance. Among the ladies I noticed Mrs.M ,
"Mrs. A , tho Misses W , and last, but
not least, Mrs. K ; all of whom looked re
markably well, and acted their parts accord
ingly. Enjoyment seemed to be their mot'o,
and it was full 4 o'clock A. M , before the
company began to disperse.
It is a subject of general congratulation
among our citizens the glorious news from
old Virginia. Who could supposo thot the Old
Dominion could be led astray by such men as
Wise, I'ryor, Floyd, and other disunionists7
There are too many Union-loving, sensible men
thereto bo humbugged, and their vote of yes
terday has laid all tho would-be disunionists in
the dust. '

night, and the most perfect discipline is ob
served ; only two men have been guilty of in
subordination aud appearing in the ranks in a

pelled by the company. One man hesitated to
obey the order of the captain ; he was immedi
ately arraigned before the company, and, upon
explanation, he was excused, and allowed to
remain in the company. We hope to make
a company creditable to the city. But we
need a littre material aid, and appeal with
confidence to the citizens of Washington city.
