Wohk-shop Bkkakino. — Quite a large business has been done in this city and vicini ty lately, In the wây of breaking open carpen ter»' and coopers' shops, and stealing there from the tools there used. The shop of James Walker, on Congress Street, near Lowell, was opened on Saturday night two weeks ago, and all the tools taken. This is a severe loss, as the man is in poor circumstances. The shop of Smith 4 Dyer, boatbuilders, on Commercial Street, was entered last week with a like re sult, and on Saturday night last the carpenters' •hop of Amos Thomas, at Woodford's Corner, was broken open and tools to the amount of $60 stolen. Saturday and Sunday seen to be nights when these depredators on the mechan ic· most do stalk abroad, and we would warn the owners of work-ehops about the city to be on their guard. We hops the police may be ■harp enough to detect these mean burglars. Hobtici ltukai. Exhibition.—We under stand thai the Spriug Exhibition of the Hor ticultural Society is to be held at Mechanics' Hall on the 1st day of May. Liberal premiums are to be awarded on the various species of green-house and house plants, and wild flowers, which are in perfection at this time of the year—and the interest which the Society has already excited in this direction, will, it is thought, make the exhibition one of more than usual excellence. The principal premiums will in due time be advertised. Wabd 2.—The Republicans and Union men In Ward 2 are reminded that the annual meet ing was adjourned to 12 o'clock to-day for the purpose of tilling the vacancy in the Common Council. Mr. Samuel Waterhouse is the can didate. The Amateur*.—Dee ring Hall has been crowded to the very celling for the last three nights, by an audience drawn from the very be*t families In the city, to witness the dra matic exhibitions of the Amateur Company, who have volunteered to get up a few chaste, pleasing and recherche entertainment!, that the proceeds may flow into that receptacle of worthy charities—the treasury of the Sanitary Commission. These exhibitions have been patronized by all classes and all professions ; by lawyers and clients, physicians and pa tients, clergymen and laymen, saints we trust and some few sinners it is to be feared. Se riously, no better audiences could be drawn together; no better order could be observed; no more decorous entertainment could well be brought forward. But for the acting. When we say it is good, capital, we fall to do justice to the ladies and gentlemen to whose credit these pleasant en tertainments are to be set down. We have on numerous occasions seen far less meritorious playing in the Boston Museum—one of the most popular places In New England for chaste drauiatic exhibitions ; we have seen far worse playing in that famed aristocratic tem ple of Thespis, the old Boston Theater, now the Academy of Music. We do not mean to intimate that the Amateurs are prepared to stand up against the stock companies ot the establishments referred to, but we do mean that in the few plays they have brought for ward they bave evinced talents, and exhibited an artistic taste and executive skill that would do credit to professional actors. The stage managers, Messrs. Moses and Brown, have done themselves much credit, and Dr. Chadwlck, In the assistance he has rendered in the general management, has evinced a commendable degree of good judg ment and excellent taste. I'oppcnburg's Band have done the music in fine style, indeed, they could not do it in any other style. Among the ladles who have taken part we have noticed Misses Furbish, Brown, S. and E. Ware, Bacon, Varnum, and perhaps others. me muci nuiuiiauij pel lui I1ICU UIC pan »l "Lucretia" in the "Two Buzzards," and to our mind, she has talents of a high order. Miss Furbish seems to have been the ruling spirit in getting up these entertainments, and she has ruled with exquisite good taste and womanly judgment. In the parts that we have seen her perform she showed that she could execute as well as plan, and that she fully appreciates the character she personates, and deludes the audience into the belief, for the moment, that it is real life rather than act ing that is passing before thcin. Miss S. Ware, though lacking in power of voice, evinces a fine conception of her part, and never fails to please. The other young ladies hare done themselves credit. Of the gentlemen who have taken parts we remember the names of Messrs. Noyes, Gray, Hale, Richardson, Jordan, Sherwood, Thomas. Rand, Fernald and Patten. If we have omit ted any, as possibly we have, it is from no dis respect, but because we have no lisle before us. and depend entirely upon memory. Messrs. Noyes and Gray, with practice and proper at tention, might become "stars" in the profes sion. Mr. Patten has comic talents of a su perior order, and docs much to relieve a play of all tediousness, and to keep an audience in good spirits. Of the others we cannot speak In detail, as we have made this article already too long. Mr. Ueering is deserving of the thanks of the soldiers' friends for his liberality in lur nishing the hall free of expense for these ad mirable entertainments. An Agreeable Entertainment. After the adjournment of the City Council last evening, the members, and other officers of the city government, with some few out siders, including members of the press, at the invitation of the Mayor, Hon. Wm. W. Thotnas> proceeded to the United States Hotel, where a splendid supper had been prepared by the landlord, M>. Myrick. When all the company bad entered the din ing room and surrounded the tables, a blessing was invoked by Rev. Dr. Boeworth ol the Free Street Church. The Mayor then stated that this convention was called for the purpose of discussing certain things which would come before them. He invited them to discuss the matters with a good relish, and not to be at all backward. The company acted promptly upon the invitation of His Honor; and the rich viands spread before them were "discuss ed" with a keen relish, and with good appe tites. The Mayor slated that it bad been his intention to have given the supper at his resi dence, but the illness of one of his family pre vented it. After doing justice to the feast, the Mayor called upon Rev. l)r. Carruthers, who made some very interesting remarks respecting the opinions entertained by the large majority of people in England toward this country. His remarks were received with frequent applause. Brief remarks were also made by Messrs. J. 'Γ. Oilman and Benjamin Kingsbury, Jr., who were called out by the Mayor. As the meeting was about breaking up Hon. Charles llolden offered the following resolu tion : Hrtoirtd, That, on the retirement of our host Hon. Wni VV. (which lu a few day» wil occur,) alter a service o! two years as Mayor, we de sire to vapress to hits our warmest respect, » an upright auil IsithtuM hiet Magistrate—asone liarinjr the In-st giHHi of the city, and the comfort of the soldiers aud their families always at heart ; and also to express our sincere wishes for his Joug-couliiiued health aud happiness, on his withdrawal to privato lib. Alilerma.ii Larrabee put the question upon adopting the resolution, and every ui&n sprang to his feet. Applause followed. The Mayor then made a few very happy remarks in ac knowledgment of the compliment, and the company separated. UoAKl) or Tkai>k.—At a meeting of the Board of Trade held last evening at their rooms, It was Toted to amend the Constitution and the subject was referred to a committee.' It was also voted that the ltoard be represent ed at the Chicago Convention in J une next, and the managers were authorized to appoint luch number of delegates as they deem ad visable. Some ten or fifteen new members were admitted. Sale ok a Towxship of La.su.—The Legislature of this State in 1881, through the exertions mainly of N. A. Foster, Ksq., grant ed the Mechanic Association a township o( land. This has recently been sold by the Association and the money, upwards of $11,000, paid into their treasury. tr«'e understand a company of ladies and gentlemen from this city propose to give an entertainment in the Academy building at Yarmouth this eveuing. The proceeds are to be devoted to the benefit of sick and wounded soldiers. jy-There was no train from Uangor to this city yesterday. We understand the reason to be that on Tuesday a train got off the track, aud it was not cleared yesterday to allow a train to pass. The train from Waterville ar rived last evening. EF-We hope the Republicans and Unionist» of Ward 2 will not forget to go to the polli to-day in thai ward, and vote for Mr. Samuel Waterhouse as Councilman. He is the regular ly nominated candidate, and ought to b< elected. BY TELEGRAPH. TO THE Portland Daily Press. From New Orleans and Havana. Gapture of the Gunboat Diana by the Rebel*.

K, 12th Conn., 110 of whom were paroled. Steamer Honduras arrived at New Orleans from the Rio Grande with 260 Texas refugees. They report that on the 15th of March a rebel force of 160 crossed into Mexico at the mouth of the river.and captured Col. (ï. J. Davis, and Capt. Montgomery of the 1st Texas cavalry. Tiie Mexican authorities demanded their re lease, and Col. Davis was given up, as also three soldiers taken at the same time. (.'apt. Montgomery had not returned, aud private autitcn saj uc «α· uuiik uj mc ι ciaiis, η lutii is undoubtedly true. Davis and Montgomery were taken from the house of the Mexican Commandant. Three other officers narrowly escaped falling into the hands of the rebels. They, with half a dozen Mexicans, drove SU of the rebels to the river, wounding three or four, two of whom died. The U. S. bark Arthur threw two shells iuto the rebel quarters on the night of the 25th. The rebel Capt. Bcnavlds had also crossed into Mexico and burned a town near Guerrero. The rebel authorities were evidently in a state of great alarm, lest these violations of neutrality ahould Involve them in hostilities with Mexico. Their troops are now concen trated near the mouth of the Rio Grande. A Yankee schooner and cargo, valued at $25,000, had been captured by the rebels near Kio Grande. An immense trade is carried on over the Kio Grande. The Era's informant says that a traiu of OOU carts was on the way to Burnsville. These carts average six bales of cotton each. Gov. Lubbeck of Texas, in a message to the Legislature, declines re-election, and says he will take a uiore active part in the war. Some people attirm that he will leave the Confeder acy as soon as his term expires. He states that Texas has furnished 87,1*Μ) troops for the rebel army, and that the conscription law adopted by the legislature will add 27,000 thereto. Under this law there are no exemp tions. Every man who can stand upon his feet will be forced Into the army. Most of the refugees who came to New Or leans in the Honduras have enlisted in Col. Davlr regiment, and 75 deserters are awaiting transportation at Matamoras to do likewise. There were 80 vessel: at the mouth of the Rio Grande. Havana advices of the 4th contain no Mex ican newt. The English steamer Dolphin was captured March 20th, off I'orto Rico, by guuboat Wa chusett, and arrived at Havana leaking, in charge of a prize crew. She was repaired, and sailed for Key West. The Dolphin left SU Thomas on the 24th. She is the vessel that was leaving Liverpool as the George (triswold arrived. Several small rebel vessels with cotton had arrived at Havaua. FROM WASHINGTON.

The cadets are evincing marked proficiency in their studies aud duties, and general good health prevails. The remaining part οΓ the report ol the Committee ou tin· Conduct of the War has been printed, and will soon be given to the public.

The burthen of sentiment expressed is an exhortation to the people of the South to raise articles for foods instead of cotton.— They contain the following telegrams : Chattanooga, 4th.—There is nothing addi tional from the front this afternoon. Skirmishes with the enemy's pickets are of daily occur rence, but a general engagement is not consid ered imminent.

Cflie Sentinel editorially refers ill ambiguous terms to a riot which took place in Kichuiond last Thursday, of such a magnitude a* to cause the affair to be suppressed from publication.— From the article it appears that the city was fora while at the control of the lawless mob of inen and women, for the ostensible purpose to save themselves from starvation, by break ing open store*, bakeries, &c. The movement was headed by a female, who, the Examiner says, was above want, and the whole affair was simply to rob anil plunder under the excuse of scarcity of food. The millinery, dry goods and fancy stores suffered a< much its those containing the necessaries of life. The move ment proved to have eventuated from high prices generally. The Sentinel. In speaking of this riot, al ludes to the fact that all the papers had. after consultation, concluded at the time not to mention the matter. The Mobile Register of the 29th records the fact that a body of Union troops had penetrat ed to Ponchatoula, aud dispersed a body of rebels there.
