SWCIAL iOURNAL OF THE UNITED STATES
OFFICIAL JOURNAL OF NEW ORLEANS
Percy Roselle at the Academy.
The Dundee Courier and Ary us says of
this youthful actor, who will make his debut
at the Academy of jMusic next Moml'ty
evening:
Last night the Theatre Royal was opened
for a short season under the management
•if Mr. ltobb. The principal attraction-wan
the apjiearauce of Master l'crcy Roselle,
who was supported by a very good company.
No ehange can be observed on young Ros
cius since his last visit to this place, about
two years ago; but his extraordinary pow
ers have been mat ured and his experience
considerably increased, though even there
very little xvas left to be desired. His ver
satility was well brought out in the pieces
selected for last night. The manner in
which he played the part of Richard the
Third was most wonderful. The reading of
the text was careful and iudicious, and
given with an intelligence and force which,
astonishing in one so young, would have
been well worthy of praise'iu one of riper
vears. The farce ol the "Four Mow'orays"
was the other piece selected for the young
aspirant, and if he appeared to advantage
in the tragedy, he was still more fortunate
in his representation of the different char
acters ol the young Mow brays. Every mo
tion was free and unconstrained, and
whether in the portrayal of the sentimental
and highly ingenious boy—of which we sup
pose Master Roselle is a rare specimen—-of
the military youth,.the glutton or the lop,
lie was at once effective and graceful, lie
was frequently applauded, and received a
hearty call before the curtain at tile con
clusion of both pieces.
The Mew Cincinnati Bridge—The Structure
Tested.
Cincinnati, Match 19.—A test was made
of the Newport and Cincinnati railroad
■bridge over the Ohio river, between eleven
and twelve o'clock to day. The locomotives
Hen Franklin, J. Hicks, Hercules, Miami
and Penn went over lashed together in t.ie
order named. Tlio three middle engines
were arranged tender foremost, and the
lirst and last engines'went over locomotive
lirst. About twenty-five persons were on
them. Engineer Wilsou was on tlie 1 o re
in osl engine, and none hut local officers and
workmen accompanied this train. The
total weight was about one hundred and
twenty tons- The crossing was made
slowly. A step of several minutes' duration
was made in the middle of the long span,
to make the test thorough. The locomo
tives went into Newport and remained
there several minutes, and then returned
lashed together, again stopping on the four
hundred-feet span, where the locomotives
oi^ the Ohio side were detached, and re
turned one at a time into the city. The
bridge showed no slackness under this trial.
The test is not considered a severe one, ex
cept as a first trial before adjustments ot
Viraces and bolts are perfect. The Penn
sylvania Central railroad officials are ex- j
peeled to erossin a special car to-morro'.v. j
Anecdote ef Colonel Colt.
The following story is told of Colonel 1
.Samuel Colt, wli» iu his lifetime was some
times inclined to be atrifle pompous. When
lie was building dwelling houses for the
workmen employed in his great pistol lac
tory, lie oue day* encountered a boy picking
up chips on bis grounds.
"What are you doing here I" he asked
gruffly.
"Picking 'up chips, sir." replied the
youngster, evidently unawed by the great
presence. '
"Perhaps,''exclaimed the Colonel, draw
ing himself up with dignity, "you don't
know who I am. I'm Colonel Samuel Colt,
anil I live iu that big house up vender."
The boy straightened up. swelled out. and
answered:
"Perhaps you don't know who I aru,. I'm
Patrick Murphy, and I live in that little
shanty down yonder," pointing in the di
rection. i
"Sonny," said the Colonel blandly, pat- l
ting the boy on the head, "go and pick up j
till the chips you want, and when you get
out, come back for more."
