Jhia office, he will learn something to hit
Theatre. The attendance at this
pqpular place of public amuiement last
night was ery large. " The Midnight
Watch" a one -act, tragico-comico-farci-co-ai
infinitum a "blood-and-thunder"
story of the French Revolution, with
neither "rhyme nor reason," was' the
beginning of the programme. Ia the
first place, the piece was badly written ;
but the performance was most abomina
ble. We may be in error in our hasty
conclusions ; but if so, we are not alto
gether to blame, for the continual talking
tyat was kept up during the performance,
prevented us from hearing much that
was going on upon the stage. At one
time we thought tho entire audience were
cast iu the piece, and borrowed a pro
Lqramme, when, much to our surprise, we
1 tounnd that a dozen persons could play
the piece with all ease. We were delight
ed when the curtain dropped on the Crat
and only act, and we fondly hope it shut
it from our view forever. The dance by
the lovely Miss Constantine put us in
bciter humor, and we come away with
the conviction that "Faint Heart Never
Won Fair Fady," would prove a decided
success, as was cast with tho full
strength of the company.
To-niaht wo have a repetition of
"Richard HI." and "Nature and Tbilos

1 jpearance. We expect to see a crowd-

We had the pleasure' of an interview
with Gens. Thomas and Far this morn
ing. Without disparagement or .neglect
to any of the many patriotic men in the
field, we take pleasure in giving expres
sion to our admiration of, these gentle
men. That they are generals and sol
diers the history of this war will abund
antly attest. But the soldier and gentle
man, the man of authority and plain,
honest simplicity, of ability and gentle
humility, are not qualities purchasable
readily in every market. When found,
it is proper for, and obligatory on, the
people to cherish and respect. General
Thomas is a gentleman and soldier' of
the old school, and wcild have graced
the age of Waohisoton, Green, and Ham-
iltow. He has a great large' face and
head, a noble body, that must contain a
great big heart, full of courage, humanity
Gen. Fry is composed, modest, thought
ful, brave, gentle, kind to a fault, as some
say : not so we. It is a virtue that all
good men love, and all brave men cherish.
If our preaent gifted and accomplished
chief has such soldiers, generally, in his
fine army, it will give confidence of suc
cess, and that success the triumph of law
and our good, glorious, immortal govern
ment. If it does not triumph, then it is
because a just God cannot find traces of
righteousness enough here to command
the preservation of the race. He has
resolved to provide a new and a better
people to live in eonoblo a country, and
to rejoice in such benign institutions.
We were pleased yesterday to see
General Palmer in the city. He is not
only a gentleman of the old-fashioned
kind, but a patriot, soldier, and a pro
found statesman. It is no wonder the
people of his own State praise so highly
such a man. He is so truly the citizen
soldier that we hail it as a pleasure to
meet him. The plain common sense, and
large comprehension of this General is
