VARIrrie TtraTs--7The Parlor Opera Cont.
j arty.-There was some improvement in the n-im
I er of the audience at the Varieties Theater last
Ir hit, to listen to the " Barber of Seville," sung
by the Parlor Opera Company, but we must ad
niat that we were disappointed at not find'nq a
lull houpe. Mils McC(ulloch, the star of the com
pany, certainly possesses all the requisites of a
I rev,,rte clor.,,bse 1 ,o-,, combining cultivation,
rlo thod, tiexibtlty of voice, beauty and
at ton. Miss McCulloch's renditin of the
the ile of Rosina cnfirmed us in our opinion
that the can be rated as a first-class singer.
Quite )oung as yet, she may not avail herself of
all the iltts which nature has bestowed so lise
tally upon her. but matnr ty will develop thr se
rirources, aid we sincertely hope to hear her
agaei next year, when she probably will visit our
city ucder more propitious ciromastancps, arnd
receive the well deserved appreciation and plau
dits of a comrnunity whi-h never allows talent to
paie unnoticed. Fignor Sueini was as comical as
,rual, and Figaro found an excellent interpreter
i, the person o(f Signor Lo.atelli. We sincerely
regret tl at circumstances will not permit Mr. Tor
tiani, manager of the company, to extend his
seaion, tut take pleasure in recommendinr his
c, mpany to the public in whatever locality they
dicide to perform hereafter.
AcA nAYY or Miusic -"The last night of the

in a glance at the programme for this evening.

Messrs. Cavanaugh, Parker. Schoolcraft, Carter,

will appear nightly. How the enterprising mmn

Naw REI.IOiuS MUVmsaNT.--The Free Reli.
gious Assoc.ation, which was organized in Boscon
last fall. held its first business and public meeting
on the 29th nlt. The association is based on the
idea of religious freedom, and seeks to solve the
religious prob cm of the age on the ground of
intellec ual liberty. Bome of the leading minds
ol Boston and New England sympathize with the
uijects of the assoeiation. All the stereotyped
i~re of sectarlanism are discarded by it. and,
hlile it attacks c-o sect or belief, it seeks to
ivolve the great truths it would establish from
nature. The president of the asseuocitien is Octd
vius B. Frothingham. Among the vice presidents
are such men as Robert Dale Owen and Thomas
W. Bigginson. During the past year leading
radicals of foreign cuontries have written lettero,
arking qucetiomns about the association : and it is
the purpose of the managers to secure a publica
tion fund for the printing and distribution of
bo kas, to establish a permanent series of lectures,
and also a reverent and progressive newspaper in
the city of Boston.
Apropos of the Battle of the Psalms now raging
in Pittaborg, the Chicago Triboune says: [" Le
nmoat curious illustrations might be given from
Ftermhold & Ropkins, or Tate & Brady, of the en.
tire want of taste, and the ludicrous adherence to
the letter which marked the ancient Presbyterian
worship. The versifiers who rendered the sacred
words into Eoglish had small regard for measure,
or for anything but a literal rendering of the in.
spired sentiment. If the words happened to
jingle, all right; if not, all right. An old psalm
in a favorite Puritan collection has this stanza :

TiE fRFE.T .i Tnnm CITY.-A long time ago,
but stili within the memory of midd eaged men,
every street in New Orleans running from the
river to the swamp had its gutters lull of gRrg
Ilmng, living water from the Mississippi, whi-h was
let in through sluikes cut into the levee. The
snuply was regulated by means of a broad plank,
tu.l of augur holes, having a slide attached.
Tirough these holes shrimp and mianows, and n.t
unfrequently god' siaed eels, made their way
from are mighty father of waters into the artlti
ciel streamlets whiblch sparkled and danced in the
r-uI lihht throughp the heart and the faubourge of
te Creecent City. It was then the custom for
ramilies to have the dusty and sweltering street
in front of their dwellings copiously watered, at
ltsbt once a day; a practice which had a remark
atlle etfct in coo'ing and refreshing the sultry
atmosl-bhre of the dog days, and contributed
wi nderfully to the cheerfoul and picturesque ap
pearance of our streets. In the lower portion of
tl.e Secord Il.irict, where the somber and mas
sive style of it:e old SpanIsh architecture prevails,
and the bni!dings are the most ancient in the city,
cte ci u'd almost dream oneself in the quarter of
the Abencerruges in Granad. with its noontide
s:i Icess interrupted only by the gr.tl mranor of
fi untains (say gotters) or the cry of a water

The greater portion of our poor people used to
obtarn water, not only for ablution but for cook
irg and drinking, from the gutters. They would
wait until a late hour of the night, when vehoicles

flowirg element, in order to fill their tubs and
casks. It was then as pure and as wholesome as
that in the parent stream, albeit, sometimes an
old negro would soak his tired feet for a few
minutes in it before retiring to bed. It is a fact
which has been serted by more than one distin

I'tsevoen DPiesrtwastc AT Kwtemwa. - We
le rued last evening that a serious disturbance
had occurred at Kennerville.Jeffsrson parish. The
account was that a deputy sheriff had gone thither
from Carrollton to arrest a negro, charged with
as, e , t!Ie-se, but had in discharging that duty
t., en tired upon by him. The officer returned the
tire woud:ndmg his assailant, whereupon the ne

slrniasns that a courier was sent to Greenville to
call Lor a detachment of soldiery to restore quiet.

that in July ct last year a negro named Ammey
Bruisgton, employed as hostler and general ser

committed a horrible outrage upon the person of
a 3 (ung girl. the daughter of white people, who
was in the habit of peddling eggs. The ne

o'clock yesterday afternoon.
A small and retired dising room in the West
minster has bees placed at the disposal of the
embassy. At the headof the room, sear the table,
is the seat of honor, invariably occupied by the
first meadarla or tqiei Chih, sad the lower end or

At this jeaoae Ba and others of the embassy
entered and approached the table, whereupon
his excellency tah arose,asalso did his attach.s,
and together over the table, their heads resting
on its edge, they made a meat protosd bow to
the new cmers; and these, is retarn, responds

when their food has been thoroughly masticated,
swallow it without fear of indigestion or prospect

R ith these together, between the them and first

small pieces of pickles, and when rice was de

A Lady Whe Couldn't Get 0a Witheot
Fanny Fern tells the following in the last
Not long since a lady called upon me, who was
very well dressed, and who expressed herself
grammatically and fluently. She had, aooording
to her own story, "been once In the first society.
She mentioned the names of ladies well known to
me wi h whom she was once intimate, and who.
occasionally gave her old dresses-bat, as she
saadr no money. Unfortunately it was money
she wanted, " as her health was delioate, and her
apretite fastidious, and she required canted fruit
stl a mutton chop," for each day's bill of fare.
Her plan bhad been to solicit funds for the par
pose, renting a small room li one of our up-town
, uses, from whence she made her daily pilgrim
ages for forage. When she succeeded well, she
-'lerred lounching at Delmosnoo's; this I after
wards ascertined, upon inquiry of a lady who
had assisted her.
The want of the neoessary mutton chop was the
immediate Pause of her call upon me, " whose
writings she had !ways admired." One of the
ladies, she said, had savised her to go to one of
those boarding-houses recently opened to afford a
clean and respectable home to women in narrow
circuomtances, at a small -ot to each inmate.
She had gone there and tried . but re , the
coc kery was not what she was a a ton-chop
and so she returned to her origial i.. that
plan. Now there was no doubt, of conrt ' 4,,
she was a humbug. The strength she expe,. -
in walking over the city to solicit funds, would, it
expended in looking foremployment, lhave placed
her sbove the necessity for charity. And the
eloquence with which she plead for the daily
mutton-chop, showed practice, which might be
turned to good account, with less fleeting results.
Well, I confess, with ame, that to rid myself
oe the applicant--who seemed to have plenty of
trne. while I had little-I bought her off with two
dollars. Rid mysIf, did I say? She retared, as
m-ght be expected, in two days, for more mattoes
chop. Meantime I had ascertained that when she
was an inmate ot the very nice boarding house to
which the lady had sent her, paying her board a
week In advance, until she could look about for
employment, she had Ianlted the youag ladles
who were gladof a respectable home like that, by
remar king, " that she was a lady, and had never
been before uasociated with low oreatures who had
to earn their living teaching music ;" and that ob
jecting to pay her board there, and at the asma
time refusing to leave, she was finally, properly,
and compulsorily ejected.
I also ascertained that she called for "mattoa
bchops" on a well-known clergyman here in Nerw
irk, stating her very delicate appetits. His re
ply wans, "Madam, If you aure ill, ad in need of
food, I will give you a mutton-chop for to-day
but I cannot agre to fnd yo a I mattO ehope.'
I Ialso aecertained that when the Npimopal ehurch
funds ran dry for mutton-chope, thet with woman's
quick aptitude she threw herself upon the boeom
of the Catholio Church; and I have no doubt that
Baptists and Methodists will also be called upon
for the same purpose. ibhe alo told me, with
charming candor, that she succeeded much better
