pu'sive woman, who says many impudent
things. Mrs. Wallace also said that Miss
Abbott was jealous of her popularity and
manifested it on all occasions, and that she
caunot bear to see anybody mentioned in
the papers but herself.
Professor Corson’* Lecture.
Avery appreciative and select audience
assembled at the Masonic Temple last even
ing to hear Dr. Hiram Corson, Professor of
Anglo-Sixon and English Literature in Cor
nell University, lecture, under the auspices
of the Young Men’s Christian Association,
on “The Poetry of Alfred TcnnysoD.”
The reputation of this gentleman was a
sufficient guarantee that the lecture would
be learned and instructive, and in this
expectation the audience were not disap
pointed. The distinguished lecturer began
by giving a very entertaining history of
British poetry during three generations pre
ceding that of Tennyson, up to whose
advent in the world of poesy
and letters the poetical talent of tha:.
country had fallen to “low water mark.”
Tennyson’s first pnbiication, however,
when he was still at au early age, gave evi
dence that the tide bad turned, aud since
then the great poet had proven to the world
that he was a poet indeed—one who, while
transcendents, was not the exemplar of
modern New England “transcendentalism;”
but who simply vitalized the imaginative,
and happily blended the real with the
ideal.
In a brief notice, such as thi3 must neces
sarily be, we cannot be expected to do full
justice to this lecture. It was interspersed
with readings from “The Lady of Bha!ott,”
“Ii Memoriam,” “The Prinees3,” *ud
minor poem* of the great laureate of Eng
land. And here w* m:<y remark that the
reediug r f Doctor Corson is very Hue. He
has a full sonorous voice, and is a taaster of
the art of eloctriou. His second lecture on
Tennyson to night will be composed large
ly of readings frci-a the principal writings
of that poet, ami all who attend may be as
sured of a rare literary treat.
Last evening the pleasure of the
lecture was greatly marred —the hall
was very cold and the gas kept up a con
tinual hissing. Neither of these could well
have been prevented, inasmuch as they
could net be foreseen. We trust, howevtr,
both annoyances will be removed this even
ing.
Tbe Obituary of “Au American
CiJrl.”
On the occasion of the recent appearance
of Mies Fanny Davenport at the Savannah
Theatre in the play of “An American Girl,”
written by Miss Anna Dickinson, the
News expressed a very adverse opinion of
the merits of the play, and suggested that
the fair actress would better please the
public by producing some of the popular
p!a\s of her repertoire, aad give “An
American Girl” a rest. Our appreciative
and intelligent theatre goers were gen
erally disappointed (and the play, and
our adverse criticism was hearti
ly indorsed. It now seem3 that
Miss Davenport has come to the tame con
clusion, and it is announced that “An
American Girl” has been laid away in her
little bed. and sent to join ktudred spirits of
the gone before, as it were. In other words,
Mi-s Davinport has given the one hun
dredth p< rfcrmance of Miss Dickinson’s
alleged drama, and will never be seen
again in Ls rendition, having patd for it
SO,OOO, acd having patiently struggled to
sustain the bantling without avail. The
death occurred in New Orleans, where Miss
Davenport is playing at the Academy of
Music.
We learn of this from the following tele
gram sent to Miss Dickinson announcing
the ead i vent:
“New Orleans, December 30, IS-SO.
“J/i.m Anna L. Dickinson, Elizabeth, N. J:
“Tee judgment of the party of the second
part decides, as per contract., your play a
pecuniary failure, aud accordingly ceases
to perform the same.
“Fanny Davenport.”
Miss Davenport is now playing “Pique”
and “Leah” to crowded houses.
’i lie Jolly Pathfinders.
This combination gave their opening per
formance last evening at the Theatre to a
fine audience, mainly composed of strangers
in tbe city. Tue eutertaiument commenced
wi b a pleasing little comedy, requiring a
ca-*t of three persons, entitled “I’erfeeHoD,”
which was capitally rendered, and was well
reC'ivcJ. Thiswug followed by a protean
acd musical extravagarzt entitled “Scraps,”
wnicb proved to be. a bundle of incongru
ous absurdities, without pith or point, and
which was almost wearying In its nonsense,
although there was no lack of applau-e.
The frolics of the picnic party might have
been carried cn without such undue famil
larity with the colored servant, who in pas
.ant, was a clever actor, aud contributed
greatly to the delight of tbe gallery. This
was certainly a feature that could Lave been
well omitted, which would have pleased the
audiet.ee bctlt r.
Miss Fanny Wailack, who is the leadiDg
lady, has a handsome and attractive pres
ence, is graceful and possesses a sweet
voice. Her singing was good, and in the
little comedy she evinced considerable dra
matic talent, and gives promise for the fu
ture. The compary play again to-nigat
with a change of programme.

BHANCSPATION DAY,
Parade of tbe Colored Troop*.
The anniversary of the emancipation pro
clamation failing on Saturday, the usual
commemoration of the even’ by the colored
tcoops was postponed until yesterday. The
day opened very raw and disagreeable,
and cloudy, which possibly was the cause
of the turn out not being as large as
on previous occasions. The companies com
posing the First Georgia Colored Volun
teers’ Battalion, assembled on South Broad
street, shortly after nine o’clock, where the
column wat formed under Lieatenant Colo
nel Woodhouse. It was the firs’, parade of
the battalion since its formal organization,
and the field acd staff officers made tbeir first
appearance mounted. Their umtorms are
handsome and showy, and, although the
rank3 of some of tbe companies were not
full, the dlsp'ay was exceedingly credita
ble. As the command marched briskly up
Bay street they showed to great advantage.
The streets, as usual, were crowded with
colored people, the occasion being observed
by them as a holiday, and many were out in
carriages, buggies aud wagons. The route
was from South Broad to Abercorn, to
Bar, to Bull, to Gaston, to the Park exten
sion, where a battalion drill was gone
through.
The Savannah Hussars and Georgia Ar
tillery, which preceded the infantry, also
presented a fine appearance. On reaching
the park extension the Artillery fired a
salute. A number of vehicles were In the
ecclosure. and one team attached to a phae
ton, containing four colored women, be
came frightened at the loud reports and
dashed r*ff. They collided with the fence,
smashing the shafts and upsetting the occu
pants, who were not injured. With the ex
ception of this accident, nothing unusual
occurred cn the grounds.
At night there were balls at the Empire
Hall and at tbe Lone Star Cadets’ Hall.
Georgia Historical Society.
The society met at 8 o’clock last night,
the President, General H. R. Jackson, in

A Card.
Savannah, Ga., December 21,1880.
To the Citizens of Chatham County: The un
dersigned, members ot the Savannah bar,
beg leave to submit for your consideration
our conviction that the public interests will
be promoted by the retention of Major John
O. Ferrill in his present position of Ordi
nary.
We have had full opportunity of ascer
taining his fitness for the office, and we
bear unsolicited and cheerful testimony to
that fitness. He has been tried for a num
ber of years and found in every way quali
fied.
The business and duties of the office are
now carried ou and discharged in a most
satisfactory manner by Major Ferrill *nd
his efficient assistants.
The office of Ordinary, a* you are Rtvare,
is a most Important, one. Frequently legal
questions of au Intricate character have to
be determined by the Ordinary eit-ing as
Judge. We are quite sure that the duties
of the office cannot be properly met save by
an incumbent of experience, intelligence
and of considerable legal information.
You have found the present incumbent
efficient and acceptable. You know him to
be an honorable citizen, a good lawyer, *
courteous gentleman aDd an excellent offi
cer. There exists, so far as we ctn learn, no
reason for any chauge. There are many
reasons why you should make no change.

If you will stop spending so much on fine
clothes, rich food aud style, buy good,
healthy food, cheaper aud better clothing;
get more real and substantial things of life
every way, and especially stop the foolish
habit of ernploj ing expensive, quack doc
tors or using so much of the vile humbug
medicine that does you only harm, but put
your trust in that simple, pure remedy, Hop

Like tlie Leave* ol tlie Ancient*,
which were given for the healing of the na
tions, are Benson’s Capcine Piasters. They
go into every part of the world where there
is pain. Not only superior to all similar
articles, but acting almost instantaneously
through the pores of the skin, iust in the
region of tbe pain, they relieve quickly and
constitute the most convenient, pleasant
and best remedy ever devised for rheuma
tism, stubborn coughs, spinal and kidney
complaints, sciatica and lumbago, pleurisy,
6pratns and all local aches and pains. Over
2,000 American druggists have signed a
statement to the effect that they consider
them far superior to all other plasters, and
a throroughly reliable household remedy.
