the rim of the cone, and half way down it, was in

Tar Orzan.-We were agreeably surprised on
Thursday evening to ee a longer line of arriages de
than usal before the Opera Bonse, and upon en- mi
tering our enchantment was perfect, to witness a lot
house filled with the beauteous women of New
Orleanes, who, although they were decked with
eat simplicity, presented a sight which will be qe
long remembered by the habituds of the opera. CC
l be performance passed of with much credit to 1
the singers, of whom we will not speak to-day,
reserving all our encominme for Mr. Develle, our
great scenic artist. who surpassed himself in his o
gorgeous scenes of the fourth and fith sets.

This evening the "Orown Diamonds," by the of

Banque. The baquet scee n which the guilty te
woman vainly endeavors to infuse into her hs
band the nerve to face the horrible speoter and C1
to override the pangs oef his own conscience, was in
admirable, and won enthusiastic applause. Mrs. de
Gomersal and Miss Placide as leading witches,
were good, and gave a charm to the weird scenes s
in which they appeared. To-day, at noon, Mr. s
Booth will play Beuedick in "Muho Ado About a
Nothing," and to-night he eoneludes his engage
ment with the performance of " Richard Ill."

SHengler, two Ethiopian comedians, o through si
with their senegambian gambols. When they di
came upon the stage we were fully prepared to.
condemn, in advawce, everything is the hackneyed L
burnt cork order of amusement; but their singing
and dancing were so novel, there was about their
movements and manners a something so entirely d
fresh and in contrast with the generality of sonc h
things, that they won our applanes is spite of cl
previous prejudices. An excellent big, including
these and other novelties is announced for to-day's
matinee, and for this evening.
Br. Calau.s.-The "Black Crook" continues 01
popular. The Amason March we never weary of
seeing; while the rare strains which usher it upon
the stang, and accompany it to the close, appeal a
forcibly to those who admire martial music. And c
then, as through the serled ranks flit. at intervals,
fair dancers. clad in white, as peace contrasting P
with war, and shining upon all a light more bril- m
liant than the midday sun, what spectacle, on or
off the stage, could be moere striking? The piece
will be repeated every evening during the coming c
Tan GREAT CCrcs.--The unusual attractions
offered by the enterprising management of Robin
son's combination entertainment are tlling the
monster pavllon nightly. The rid!ng, tnmbli og
and leapoing are, as a general thing, as good as
the moat fastilous lover of this species of spno
counld desire. Then, too, admirers of horse fes$
can here see some splendid trained steeds, and
zoologists, too, may fiu in the eixteen cages of
wild beasts food for study and instrnction. Two
performances are given daily. They are invari

ably find themselves gratiled on an inspection of
the numerous curiosities. The museum is oppo

NI('CO.on, IPAn.ET.-We are much gratified d
to see that the Southern Paving Company has
r finished paving one side of that magnificent ave
Inuc, St. Charles, in J-feerson City, with this excel- 5
leit patent pavement, which aia been adopted in
nearly every Northern and Western city. The in
crease in the value of the property which fronts i~
upon St. Charles avenne has been far beyond the
expense of the pavement, and many floe resti
dences are being erected. We hope that it will
not be long before all of our streets are thus
d paved. The following is from the BSavannah Ue- I
" The Nieolson pavement seems to be very
opular wherever laid down. The citizens of '
Piladelphia are highly pleased with that now I

will soon need relaying. The universal testimony I
is, in fact, that where the Nicolson pavement is I
