A Brig Found Abandoned ofl' Her mtida—The Crew Suppoaed *o be Lnit. A letter received In this city yesterday by Mr. F. J. Green from his brother, Mr. Edward F. Green, first officer of the bark Ada .J. Bonner, dated St. George’s, Ber nard t Isliud, March 14th, inst., relates an other mystery of the deep. The writer say* that a few days previous a full rigged brig named Alfred, of Swansea, was picked up off Bermuda Island, with not a person on board. She was loaded with phosphate rock, and supposed to be from Bull River, South Caro lina, or Charleston. The brig was in good condition, was not making any wa’er when discovered, and there was ap parently no cause for her abandonment, though she had her fltg reversed, signifying distress. Two or three days afterwards the ship’s boat was discovered in the vicinity capsized, which induced the inference that the crew bad been lost. What occasioned the crew to leave the vessel is a mystery that is perplexing every one. Mr. Green, in conclusion’ states that the brig is in possession of the Euglish authorities at that port. The Savannah Theatre-Remodel* ling the Interior. Some weeks since mention was made in the columns of the Morning News that Mr. Thomas Arkwright, proprietor of the Sa vannah Theatre, intended to make some important and desirable improvements in the Theatre this summer. The theatrical season is about over, there being only two or three companies boot ed for short engagements In April, and It is decided now to commence the work about the first of May. Last evening the scenic artist at the Theatre, Mr. J. H. Lyon, exhibited to us a drawing of the Theatre, showing the interior as it now is, and how It will be, and the difference in the appearance is very marked. As 6tated, the present private boxes are to be removed and the family circle enlarged, the change giving on either side thirty comfortable seats, or sixty in all, a considerable increase. Neat and com fortable boxes will be erected on either 6ide of the stage in tiers of three, similar to the proscenium boxes in the theatres North, and they will be handsomely upholstered and furnished. It is also intended to remove the froDt row of benches in the parquette, and place a neat railing around the orchestra, which will be a very decided improvement, and will set off the parquette. The interior generally Is to be repainted and upholster ed, and such Improvements as may be sug gested during the progress of the work will be made. The exterior is also to be re modeled in a manner, and the front adorned with a row of gas jets. Text Book*.

Wholesale Capture on Hutchison’s Island—Foot Rsce Between Offi cer* and a Colored Woman. Yesterday morning Sheriff Wm. Wilson, of Beaufort county, South Carolina, ar rived In Savannah In search of some nine negroes, who are charged with being con cerned in a riot, the particulars of Mhieh are briefly these: On the 13th instant a ne gro was arrested in Beaufort for some of fense and was being taken to the calaboose by the officer when a number of negroes, including one woman, made an attack upon the officer, rescued the prisoner and turned him loose. The affair created quite an ex citement in the town, and was the cause of a lively riot. All the parties concerned left Beaufort that night and it was only learned a few days since that they had come to Sa vannah and had sought employment here. Hence Sheriff Wilson came over yesterday for the purpose of arresting them. He pro ceeded to the office of Magistrate Molina, where a warrant was issued against them, the intention being to arrest them and hold them subject to a requisition from the Governor of South Carolina. It was ascer tained that the parties were working on Hutchinson's Island, and Sheriff Wilson and Constable Entires, procuring a boat, started across the river. As they approach ed Duggan’s wharf. Sheriff Wilson, who was standing up in the boat, spied a negro woman in the door of a shanty, whom he instantly recognized as Betty Jones, wife of Tom Jones, one of the parties he was In search of, and knew that he was on the right track. Betty, whose attention was attracted by the boat landing, gazed intent ly at the officers as they stepped ashore, and, recognizing the Sheriff, instantly divined the object of his visit, and started on a run across the island, to the opposite side, where the men were working, for the purpose of giving the alarm so as they could get cut of the ay. The officers suspected her purpose and immediately started In pur suit, and then ensued a ”go as-you please” running match, which Is said to have been equal to tbe side show of a circus. The female knew the ground, and lifting her skhts, scampered away with the fleetness of a deer, the officers followed, puffing and blowing, but with determination to capture the woman at all hazards, as if the men were apprized of their coming they would undoubtedly escape by boat across Back river. From the house Betty first caught sight of the officers to the place where the men were working is about a mile and a half, a pretty good stretch over unsviu ground. After runuiDg nearly a mile the Sheriff gave out, but Constable Endres continued the pursuit and finally overtook Betty, who was pretty thoroughly exhausted herself, and the pursuer and pur sued, after the capture, were compelled to take a rest of a few minutes, by which time Sheriff Wilson came up. The officers asked Betty what she ran for, when that shrewd female began to make a lame explanation, and suddenly, before the officers could rise from the ground, made another dash. A second chase followed, but was of short du ration, as Constable Endres threw hi3 stick at her, which struck her on the leg, trip ping her up. Betty was then taken in tow, and the officers quietly proceeded to the place where the men were working and captured the entire party—Tom Gaillard, John Mustin, Tom Jones (the husband of the festive Betts), Alec Brown, James Sim mons and Elsie Gillyard. The parties made no resistance to the arrest, as the officers were prepared for them. They were brought over to the city, when the Sheriff proposed to take them before Magistrate Molin* to be committed to jail to await a requ’sifion, which was the regular legal procedure, hut the negroes, with one accord, expressed their willingness to return to Beaufort without this formality, stating that “dey could get justice In Souf Carolina,” and dido’i want to be ‘‘cooped up in no Georgia jail.” Accordingly,Sheriff Wilson left yesterday afternoon with his prisoners for Beaufort, where they will at once be placed on trial. a*tiei mod Tiiiuit* Laconically Noted. Only one arrest was recorded at the Police barracks up to 1 a. m. to-day. The assessment at the Police Court yes terday was only $26, and there were only a few cash customers. Policeman Hanlon yesterday morning arrested Mary Charlton, colored, for dis orderly conduct on the street. The Magistrates complain of the dullness of times. There is very little criminal busi ness and no money in what there is. The British schooner Julia Elizabeth, from Eleuthera, consigned to Mr. J. B. Reedy, has among her cargo one hundred watermelons. The British brig John Boyd was on yes terday cleared for Cienfuegos by Messrs Joseph A. Roberts &Cos , with a cargo of 133,815 feet cf lumber. Cargo by P. de Murgumdo. The steamship City of Bavannah, Captain Catharine, arrived at ter dock yesterday afternoon at 5 o’clock, having made the trip from the dock at Philadelphia in fifty one hours and a half. Mr. Frank E. R barer, the efficient Clerk of Council, whose late bereavement in the loss of two children in the far West excited general sympathy, has returned with his wife and surviving child, and is again at h s post. The illuminated glass mortar which was erected last night on the lamp post at the porner of Bull and Congress streets, as a sign for Butler’s drug emporium, attracted considerable attention. It is very handsome and showy. The civil dockets of the Superior Court will be taken up on Monday next, and every case thereon will be disposed of, either by trial, assignment, continuance or dismissal, commencing at the oldest case and going in regular order to the teel of the docket. The practice heretofore allowed of skipping about over the docket and assigning cases by agreement of counsel will not be per mitted. ■♦< r- Vagrant* Sent to Cityler Swamp. Early yesterday morning the police made a raid upon a number of tramps or vagrants who have been In the habit of loafing about the wharves in the day and sleeping under a shed corner of River and Drayton streets. Some time since several parties were ar rested in the same locality on suspicion of being sneak thieves, and were arraigned in the Police Court and sentenced. This had the effect, for awhile, of inducing the loafing gentry to find other quarters, but matters quieting down they have lately returned. About two o’clock yesterday morning Policemen Taylor and Buckley mads a descent upon the 6hed and captured Frank Johnson, James Smith, James Monroe, Wm. Smith and Eiward Grant, colored, who were carried to the barracks. Subsequently Police man Buckley found John Rourke sleeping under a shed, aud arrested him as a suspi cious character. The parties were brought before the Mayor in the Police Court yes terday morning, when, after a statement of the circumstances, the five negroes were sentenced to ten days’ imprisonment, and will be sent to do some service on the chain gang. Rourke wa3 fined $3 or ten day6’ im prisonment, and not having the cash, will probably keep them company. ! —<r- Improvement* at the Gat Wrk- Coln Found in tbe Corner of an Old Sbed. The Bavannah Gas Light Company have determined upon some improvements at their works foot of Bay street, among them the erection of anew retort house.

THE GEOHGI4 AND CENTRAL, Tbelr Joint Properly In Alabama— Conference Committee—Vl*lt to the Railroad Wharves and Shop*-The Georgia Lease Not Yet Considered —Another meeting To-day. The aubject of the rumored lease of the Georgia Railroad by the Central, was the absorbing topic of conversation in business circles yesterday, and It was generally be lieved that the conference of the commit tees of the respective roads, which was announced to be held during the morning, would give this subject consideration, as well as the division of the property of the Western Ritlroad of Alabama, jointly own ed by the companies. The following distinguished railroad offi cials arrived in the morning and registered at the Screven House: Colonel 8. Thomas, of Athena; Ferdinand Phlnizy, Esq., and Dr. J. S. Hamilton, of Athens; H. D. McDan iels, Esq , of Monroe county; Colonel J. H. James, of Atlanta; John Davison, Esq , and Colonel J. B. Cummlng, of Augusta. Gen. E. P. Alexander, Vice President of the Louisville and Nashville aud Georgia Rail road, and Cecil G&bbett, E>-q , President of the Board of Managers of the Western Railroad of Alabama, were also in the city, the former a guest of Gen. A. R. Lawton." The conference was to have been held in the morning, but as several of the gentle men had not been in Bavannah for a num ber of years, Col. Wadlev decided to devote the morning to showing’them the Improve ments around the city, and more especially the Central Railroad property. The party were first driven to the depot and work shops of the Central, aud spent a couple of hours In their inspection, and obtaining information of the large facilities of the company in the turning out of work of various kinds. They were then driven to the Central Railroad wharves, and noted, with surprise, the vast improvements which had there been made, watched the opera tions of tbe steam pile driver, visited the cotton presses and steamships in port, and then made a tour of the city, visiting other industries. This occupied more time than was anticipated, aDd hence the meeting was pos’poned until the afternoon. About half-past five o’clock in the after noon the gentlemen assembled at the Cen tral Railroad banking house, and proceed ed to a discussion of the interests of the two companies in the Western Railroad of Alabama, the object of the gathering. No definite arrangements were perfected up to the hour of adjournment at seven o’clock, and another meeting will be held this morn ing at ten o’clock, when It Is thought that the business will be completed. The subject of the lease of the Georgia Railroad was not considered, though it is not improbable it will be brought up to day, and something definite may be learned. We are authoritatively Informed that so far no measures have been taken in this direction, despite the numerous rumors to the contrary. We may say here, however, that the senti ment of our business community is largely In favor of the lease, as it is believed that such a combination will settle many vexed questions, and inure to the advantage ot Georgia and Savannah. Ooe of the con ference committee, though stating that nothing had been done, remarked to us yes terday evening that he could not see how any intelligent business man of Savannah could regard other than with favor such a lease. Much that has been said on the sub jc% however, is baeed on sup position aud has not the sanc t;ou of “offieial utterance.” When the lease is effected, if it ever is, the readers of the Morning News will be advised of it. But uutil the question of the division of the Western Railroad of Alabama is settled nothing will be done concerning the lease. In regard to the rumor that Colonel Wad lev had prepared $2,000,000 of bonds which he proposed to put on the market soo •, for the purpose of extending the Savannah and Memphis Railroad from Dadeville to the Cahaba coal fields, we we may say that for some time such has been the tnteution of Colonel Wadley, pro vided it was fouud feasible. A competent corps are uow prospecting the locality to a;Certain if there is sufficient coal in that re gion to justify the extension, aud if their report is favorable measures will at once be taken. Tbe road is now known as the Columbus and Western and is uuder the Presidency of Colonel Wadley. At the time it changed hands the subject of this extension was considered, and it was estimated that the cost would be about twelve thousand dollars per mile. The dis tance from Dadeville to a connection with the coal fields was ascertained to be fifty miles, and bonds to a sufficient amount to cover this cost are prepared, and will be issued should the extension be determined upon. As to the ultimate object of this movement we are uninformed, but it may be astumed that it will be to the benefit of the Ctntral and Savannah. That some important developments In re gard to railroad interests are In the near future, scarcely admits of a doubt, and probably we may know more about them when this conference committee close their labors. The Masonic Bazar and Fair—An Explanatory Circular. The following circular, from Mr. Samuel P. Hamilton, Chairman of the Executive Committee of Masonic Lodges, in reference to the approaching Baz ir and Fair, is pub lished by request of many who desire to send copies of the paper containing it to their friends: Juiitor Morninq Kiws: Having perfected our arrangements for the approaching Bazar add Fair, we think a tew words in relation thereto Wuuld not be amiss at this time. Masomy in Savannah is co existent with the settlement of the city, the charter having been brought over by Bro. (Gen ) Ogle thorpe in 1733, the first lodge being opened by him, in the open air, near what is now the Intersection of Bull and Bay streets. From that time to the present, a period of near)y a century and a half, It has steadily gone forward in the good work, and during that whole period it has never asked the public for any assistance. As regards the noble purposes of MasoLry, I need only refer as evidence of the fact to the long list of the distinguished patrons of thp order in the past as well as present. While Masonry is a secret society, yet enough is kno vn to the public to know that one of its grand characteristics is charity. Its purposes are to “feed the hungry, clothe the naked, suc cor tbe needy, and bind up the wounds of the sffl cted;” and while it does not furnish the luxuries, no one, whether Mason or not, suffering for the necessaries of life, is ever refused assistance. YVe would say to the citizens of Savan nah that we have erected a building in your city which is au ornament to the city. In doing so we incurred an indebtedness which, owing to circumstances over which we had no control, we have been unable to pay. We now, for the first time, call upon you for contributions and patronage. To the merchants and business men of our city, that we have made special arrangements by which we expect to bring more strangers to our city than was here during our Centen nial, the benefit from which will not be de nied, we therefore ask you for assistance. To the Masons of the State, that Masonry in Savannah is the mother of the order, in Georgia, and as such is entitled to your sup port. To the Masons of Savannah we would say this is mutual work in a mutual cause, for by a resolution of Solomon’s Lodge, passed some two years ago, when this indebtedness shall have been paid, the upper story of the building Is to be used exclusively for Masonic purposes, and each Masonic body now existing shall have equal right to use the same free of rent; therefore, all the Masonic bodies are equally interested in having this debt removed. We have obtained the consent of the United States Government to use the Ogle thorpe Barracks. A building committee has been appointed, and the work of erecting a Urge and commodious building in the en closure has been commenced.

We are pleased to say that we are meeting with Tery liberal encouragement, as dona tions are being dally received from all parts of the country, extenuJn£~f rnm Maine to Texas and from the Atlantic to the Pacific, and, as there is still nearly a month before the opening, if the merchants aud others will use tbelr influence, much more can be accomplished. We propose to make this exhibition— Bazar and Fair—attractive and entertaining by having music, dancing and other amuea ments, and one evening during the continu ance of the Fair we propose giving a grand gift concert in aid of the j?aiL We desire to express our satisfaction at the encouragement we have received and to call upon the citizens generally, whether Masons or not, without regard to religious or political opinions, to assist in the noble and glorious work.
