Jeannettk's Wedding.— This operatic
gem, which is to be given at the new City Hall
next Wednesday evening, is justly entitled to
distinction, as it belongs to a class of musical
compositions as yet almost unknown to the
public. Hitherto the introduction of an opera
conveyed with It the idea of a great troupe, a
superb wardrobe and a gorgeous miac en $ccne,
with properties on a large scale. Now, how
aver, thanks to the refined imagination of
a composer before unknown, the luxury of au
opera can be presented with all its require
ments by two good artists, and enjoyed to :
the fullest extent by any audience, however
critical or fastidious.
The story of Jeannette's wedding is one of
daily life—a lover's quarrel. Jean, the bride
groom, on his wedding day, is seized with a
sudden dread of matrimony, and abruptly
breaks up the marriage ceremony. His youth
ful and confiding betrothed annoyed at his folly
and dreading the sneers of her companions,
determines to cajole him to a fulfillment of the
marriage contract, which she ultimately suc
ceeds in doing, to his surprise and her own
satisfaction.
Runaway and Smash ur.—A horse at
tached to a double gig was quietly standing
hitched yesterday afternoon in front of the
•tore of Messrs. Dyer, when two Irish boys
came along and deliberately put their dappers
up into the horse's face and frightened hiui by
their noise and motions, he started at once,
broke the halter and run into a hack, by which
the gig was overturned and the horse disen
gaged, he then run in a most luriout manner
down Middle street on to the sidewalk, strik
ing a young girl and knocking her down. She
was carried into the apothecary shop of Mr.
N. G. Nichols, corner of Frankliu street,
where she soon was enabled to return home
to one of the islands. She was saved from
instant death by a seeming miracle. Another
little girl was got out of the way while cross
ing Exchange street by Mr. J. M. Todd. The
police ought to arrest those boys for malicious
muchief.
The Sick Soldier.—It is said that we were
in error in regard to the sick soldier alluded
to in yesterday's issue, who was taken care of
by Mrs. James S. Gould. Mrs. Gould acting
well the part of the good Samaritan, took
him into her house, uursed and provided for
his wants. Kev. Mr. S.f of the Sanitary Com
mission, called upon the lady and gave her
•ome money, all of which she has expended
lor medicines, <Scc., for the invalid, whose
mother has been with him for sevcr.il days.
We cheerfully make this correction, wishing
that justice should be rendered to the estima
ble lady to whom it is so decidedly due.
WWe understand that several gentlemen
of this city, largely representing our business

ter. We hope a large delegation will be dis
posed to make the trip. Lewiston is destined
to be the Manchester of Maine, and it will be
come so whether Portland does or does not
become the Liverpool of America, as was
hinted last winter in the Legislature.
Fitting up.—A neat little steamer to be
called the Kangaroo is lying at Franklin wharf,
receiving her machinery from llie Portland
company and being otherwise fitted up. She
was built at lialh by J. P. Morse, Esq., and
Capt. B. W. Morse, who is to command her. She

Arrival of Sick and Disabled Soldiers from
Hi.km Head Shameful Neglect of Duty.
New'Yokk, May 15.
Steamer Cosmopolitan, which arrived Wed
nesday Iron) Hilton llead, brought a {large
number of discharged soldiers from that de
partment, nearly all of whom are sick, dis
abled or wounded. Most of them were taken
to David's Island, where, upon examination of
their papers, it was found that they were dis
charged from the U. S. service, but unfor
tunately their other papers were found to be
imperfect, i. e., not one of them was signed by
the Surgeon at Hilton Head, consequently,
although these papers are all tilled out, need
ing nothing but this signature, these poor fel
lows cannot obtain their pay from the pay
master, neither can they obtain transportation
to their homes or rations until the documents
are returned to Hilton Head, there reclilied
and again returned here. One hundred and
seventy of these men were brought to the
New Knglaml Kooms, KM Broadway, to-day,
where they were very promptly received and
cared tor. Were it not lor the existence of
this excellent institution they would have
lieen thrown upon such charity as could have
lieen obtained in the streets. The Superin
tendent of the room, Col. Howe, immediately
took steps to send them to their homes, and
with the assistance of the Agency of the War
ι Protective Claim Association, the total amount
of each soldier's account will be collected and
remitted to them, giving each acertitled check
therefor. Some 2(10 still remain at David's
Island, who will be brought to the New Eng
land Rooms on Saturday or Monday, and for
them the same kind offices will he performed.
The men are froin every loyal State and em
brace all branches of the service. Many of
them are heads of families, and the depriva
tion of their pay for a mouth or more will be
felt with great severity. The person guilty of
such derelictions of duty has committed an
act of gross injustice to these sick and dis
abled soldiers and their needy and anxious
families, and one which Government will not
he slow to rebuke with just severity. The
facts will be forwarded to the proper authori
ties.

Your Committee, therefore, upon a full and dis

been cheated out of their just dues, and recommcnd
to each of them to take such legal measure*, as the
laws may afford, to compel Mia strout to make good
