OrB Own AnmoRa. Thrrp has trrown up re cently in our city a deference to the writers of New York which is gradually vcrrrirjr into nyco jhancy. Whatever tlie New York editors say Is accepted m truth; whatever tho New YorK authors write is read with avidity: whatever her publishers Ifsuc is at once considered a stand ard. We have frequently controverted tha Idea that the publications of any houses are better than those of our own. Wc have often contended that, considering tho inferior facilities of the Juaker City, 6he often receives news ahead of the metropolis. Let us nor mention wnat tho writers of Philadelphia hnve recently douo or purpose shortly to do. William V. MoKean, Esq., editor of the Lsiyer, lias nearly completed the third volume of the "Annual Register." of which he has had charge since the scheme was designed. It 13 rumored also that ho has in courso of prepara tion a work relative to some of the details of the late war. There is no one better tittod to perform tho task of treating of recent cvnts than Mr. MeKean. For years he has made bucd details a specialty, and is most thoroughly pouted in all tho statistics and miuuUic relative to important battles, political or martial, and the influence they exerted on the national history. Thompson Wcstcott, Esq., editor of tho Sun dntl Itifjmtrti, has recently laid before the" pu'dic a work, published by Hibieription, entitled the "Test Oaths of the Revolution..1' Tno history of the production is interi-sllnc;. A few years sluce, an old document was found among a mass of waste paper, and which was ordered to be sol 1 by the Recorder of DepeK It proved to be the test oath which each Pennsylvania citizen of doubtful loyalty was compelled to Men at tho conclusion of the war of 177. To it was ap pended thousands of signatures. It were sold to a publisher, who determined to issue it in book form, and called on Mr. Westcott for a history ot Ihe oaths as an introduction. A better selection could not have been made, as there Is not a gen tleman In our icity who can surpass him in a familiarity with our municipal lore. The result is;a delightful and Instructive work, singularly appropriate to our own times. We will refer to it on some future occasion. The autlior has been for years directing his time and talents to the preparation of a "History of Philadclphia."IIe has already brought it down to the opening year of the century. We earnestly hope that he will conclude his labors, and give onr citizens an opportunity of securing a copy of an authentic and complete history of Phila delphia. The annals of Watson are Interesting, but are so disjointed as to lose half their value. Mr. Westcott's work will bo lull, extensive, and interesting, and will fill a void in our libraries. Speaking on the subject of works on munici pal history, we may refer to an interesting little pamphlet by Casper Soiider, Jr., of the Bulletin, on "Jarpentcrs' Hall." It is an cstraet from his "History of Chesnut Street," and has been published in aid of the fair for the "Soldiers' and Bailors' Home." We have just emughof the extracts given to make ub long for a popular edi tion' of this valuable record of our leading thoroughfare. Among the members of the Press Club who are about issuing works we may mention Emer son Bennett,' Esq., the popular novelist. II9 is about to publish another ofjhis thrilling Western stories, in which daring alveutare and muscular activity are bo admirably displayed. We do not know which to admire most, the originality of situation or the easy fluency of expression which characterizes all ol Mr. Bennett's works. It is entitled "The Phantom of the Forest," and will Appear as a serial in the Saturday Evening Post. 1 Apropos of works forthcoming from members of the Philadelphia press, we may mention two promised volumes of poems, one from A. E. Lan caster, Esq., and the other from Mr. Kane O'on. ieii. The ability Of the authors is a age for ?he attractive nature ot the productions. Dr. R. Shelton Mackenzie, literary critic of the Press, has in course of preparation a volume of "Personal Reminiscences," of the great men he has met In connection with reminiscences, we may men tion appropriately that another series ot recol lections, although different from those of Dr. Mackenzie, will shortly appear. We refer to the advtntures of Signor Blitz, the ventriloquWL Having travelled all over Europe and America, and, probably, Africa and the Sandwich Islands, for 1 he last thirty years, it is impossible that the Signor should not have had many comical ad ventures. These he has constantly jotted down in a diary, until at last he has volumes of the most amusing anecdotes in his manuscript re cord. Of these he is selecting the best, and will shortly lay them before our reading community. He has read us a nitmber of these recollections, and we can vouch for their being both unique and racy. His style is piquant and pleasant. The work from the presses of J. R. Llppincott & Co., entitled "Poetical Tributes to the Memory of Abraham Lincoln," which has had so exten hive a sale, is a compilation of J. N. Plotz, Esq., of Philadelphia. It deserves all the patronage it has received. Henry B. Hirst, Esq., the author of "Endy onion," is prepanng a third edition of that work. The reputation which It acquired as one of the finest poetical efforts of our native authors, has completely exhausted the first two editions. In the next, in addition to the revised work, will be found the tributes of later date, including those to President Lincoln, J. Barclay Harding, Esq., General Birney, and others. It will proba bly be ready by February. Mr. C. D. tiardette has had'bis poetlcel works issued in book form, by Bunce & Huntingdon, ot New York, under tho title of "The Fire Fiend, and other Poems." To deny to this author ability would be unjust, but we are perfectly free to question his literary power. We will tpcak in detail of the book In a few days. We regret to lose from our circle Rev. C. W. Denuison, tha well-known author of a number of biographies, including those of Sheridan'and Grant. He sail's for Great Britain, to establish in London a weekly journal devofed to American interests. It Is to be called The Republican, and will contain sixteen pages, in the form of the New York Albion. Such a publication is much needed, and our Keverend friend has our best wishes for success. He will aUo correspond with papers in Boston, New York, and our own city, An effort is to be inaugurated to secure a spe cial fund, at the disposal ci the Press Club, but to be used only to give pecuniary aid to such journalist as may be so situated as to be In ab solute need. A similar fund extats among our THE DAILY KVKN1N TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, TUESDAY, merchants, manufacturers, ar.d profc? sional men , generally, and it is desirable that the newspaper fraternity be similarly situated. The Bad fate of G. W. Cutter, author ot the "Song ot Steam," who died a few days since in the Washington Alms house, i a powerful argument in aid of some such step. It will be modelled after tie Press Fund of Great Britain, over which Dick us pre- sides, and will be devoted to dispensing "unosten tatious charitv among the Indigent of the pro fusion. No steps have yet been taken, but the rCort hiis our warmest sympathy and support. A M ITS f ' XI h. N TS. Acadliuy op Music Wauit is not an open for tlio Italians.

The romauza at tlie spinninir-wbeol, though transposed for Miss Kellop, did not appear to suit hervoico. The cabalela sao acted with in finite (rrace, and sang brilliantly, Slfrnor Iifro, the new ttnor ("Faust"), is a careful artist; his style is (food j ho sings smoothly, maiuirlnx his voice artisti cally.

It whh great expression, but Signor Irfre was weak and cold. Signor Antouuccl, the basso, baj a voice ofvory little power, though Its quality is good. Ue did not in one instance miss tho spirit of the mutic. Of the new artists he was the least successlul. He did not attempt to portray the nVnl Goethe has drawn and Hermann gave us, making him a common lta lan opera villain, and thoref r taking from tho coloring of the play and the lndividuahtf of tbo music. Signor Bellini, with his fioo sonorous voice, Lis grand dramatic stjlo, made "Valentino" the moet satisfactory part ot the evening. Madame k Ichcr is a singer le troisieme ordre, so that ' Seibet'' tonic into insignificance Altogether, with our memories of the artists who for ns created Faust, we cannot consider tbo porlorroance of laet night as a success. The chorus was good, II. Bcrgteld's Fanfare having its share of applaus , and being encored, The orchestra here Is full, coin plote and admirable, so that wo look to the AMoaine with coufidonce, and the orchestration of Mey erbeer requires that each individual should be what he is, almost without exception, In this orchestra a great and accomoli hod must clan. This evonug the grand musioal 'event for which Ed rope waled ten years will take place. Madame Carozzi Zucclu, one of the best educated artists, an artist endowed, too, with soul, tenderness, and power, will appear. Mazzohni, a tenor of the Yerdi Bchool, dramatic, and with a grand voico; Bellini, Madamo Uosisio, and other artists, now to us, will appear. L'Africaine is got up in tho grandest ' stylo. The music has lccHved the favorable Judg ments of all the capita's of Earopo. Wo hold our rank amongst musical citios, and are now to hear tor the first time tho grand final, artistic culmination of the lifo of tho man immortalized already by the Hu guenots and Robert le Viable. We givo the plot, so as to avoid the inconvemouce of reading ibe libretto as the opera pioceeds: Tlio first act introduces us to "Inez," the botrothod of "Vasco di Ciama," ihu mariner. Of course tho match is oppo ed, and "Inez" is compelled to marry Don Pedro," alter being assured that "Vasco" had perished at sou. contrary to expecta tions, however, "Va.uco" turns up, and appears be fore tno Koval Council Ot Postural, and'uronojos to ; dd v, unknown lands to ihe territory of that mr.trdom it ships and moans are given to prosecute ano'her voyaae. lo prove that such lauds do exist, he produces two Indians whom he purchased in the slave market, whoe complex on and language dirtor irom those ot all known nations, xue uouuou reject his proposals, and discredit all his assertion?, "Vasco" is inuignant, tates the Council soundly tor their ignorance and bigotry, and is consequently thrown into prison lugmuur miu uiu uuivs, Ibosecouu act aisvoYcrs ' vasco" IB prison, nis slave "belika" watching. That he has rescued her Irom harsh slavery, and beeo kind to her, is sulll cieut to eugoudor in her heart a passionate iovo, of which be knows nothing. The othor slave, "'e lusko," loves her secretly, wlulo bo honors her as bis queca iu her own laud. Jealous of "Vasco," he endeavors to kill tnin, but is prevented by the watch lul"Selika," In the meantime, "Doa Pedro" has pot possession of all "Vasco's" plans and charts, through "jNelueko," and has procured himself to bo proclaimed governor 01 B'i me unuiscoverea ooua- mes, ana aisu uip uuu uiuu iu cunuo uiui iu iuuk lor the land which be noes out to govern. Urged by "Inez," ho procures tho release of "Vasco," tells him what be has done, una alter purchasing "Iselika" and "fielusko," leuves him, to embark with bis wiro on a voyage of douottul issue. 1 he third act discovers tno whole party on ship board. It seems to bo a happy family until Vasco di Gurua appears on the deck (he having procured a BUip, in which he loilowed tha course of his beloved Inez) and iuiorms Don Pedro that a storm is coming on, that the ship is close to a dangorous coast, hard to weather In a scorm, and Infested by predatory In dians, iiefore Don Pedro, in a flush ot gratitude, can Imprison Vasoo beiow, the storm comes on, (he ship is Btrnck by lightning, and tlie crew are sevoieiy struck by the Indians, who swarm over tne deck and take the whole party prisoners. The fourth act presents' Selika" as Queen, the ship having loundered fortuitously on her own hores. "Don Pedro" and all his saiiors, baying beea de spatched and probably eaten, the ladtos are reserved lor the delicate attenti ns ot the soritioe. . "Vasoo" being a sea-dog, of course is saved, and wandering along torlorn and wretched, naturady slmrs, which betrays him to the savages, who, singing themselves, are not at all moved by bis vocal display, ana are on the point ol clubbing him, when "selika" rushes in and arrons their ravage Intent. Of course, the "Grand Priest ot Bramah" is immediately called in to investigate the matlcr. "Selika" bo.dly avows that "Vasco di Gama" sa-ad her from slavery, and married her in a Christian country, consequently tuat be is her husosml, to prove which delicate fabrication shecal s JN'embka" as witness. The gen tle savage swaliows his disgust, determined to sacri lico Limsolf for tho woman he lores, and takes his oath tbat "SehkaV etorv is strictly orreot.

Kbw Cheshut fiTdK-T Theatre. The Sleeping JJeanty continues in unabated attraction at this theatre, and is doubt'oss in for a long run. Almost every evening some now points and local jokes are added by the dramatist el this theatre, Mr. Benjamlu E. Woolf, who has adapted the piece for our stage. Miss Josio Orion, Mr. Lennox, Mr. Chapman, Miss Cappello, Miss Annie Ward, and Mr. J. Ward are established as exoe lent burlesque artists, and we think lir. Sinn's oompany never appeared to better advantage than In this do Igbtful extravaganza. The iconic effects ol the play are really magnificent, and the transrormatioo scene at the end ot the .piece is acknow ledged by all to be the most beautiful work or stage art ver seen in this country. There are faults n the piooo, of course, but thnso have bosn gradua'.ly enrroctod, wh le wholesome additions aro being made constantly. The audience last evening was wury large and fashionable, and the applause wai OYvided between tho actors and the scenery wjtb fd? tnent, but with real enthusiasm.

MATTERS OVER THE RIVER. The Courts. The January tercn of the Camden county courts commences 014 the 1Kb. iastnnt. A large amount of business is to bj disposed of,' and a protracted term is expected. There are thirty-four prisoners awaiting trial and the action of tho Grand Jurv, besides the other items ot business which that body will find to be disposed of. It would be a blessing to Camden city and county if tho Court could de vse and cause lw establishment of a proper place of correction, where delinquent half crown boys inieht be taught sell-respect under the mild exactions and chastisements ot law. For there are scores, even in Cainden, on the high road to ruin. , r - . c Bigamy. Previous to the October term of the Camden County Courts, Justice James M. Cassaily, of Middle Ward, committed a man named George H. Haines to the County Jaif, charged with bigamy. 'lie Was couvictei of the charge, but subsequently escaped from the juris diction of the law, and fled to the West Indies, thus forfeiting his bail. After renialuing there a Bhcrt time he had the hardihooif to return to Camden, where he was taken again into custody and recommitted to prison. , , s a.

Every one rushed out to see what was the cause, but none could tell. A messenger Boon arrived with the startling intelligence that the boilers atCordelia Furnace, situated about two miles from Columbia, on the Beading and Co lumbia Railroad, had been blown up. On reach ing the scene of the disaster we found that the furnace was a total wreck, and the wood-work on fire. Of four boilers only ono remained whole, and that was carried olf about one hun dred yards. Two were bursted completely. The half of one was carried about five hundred yards into a neighboring field, and the other was lodged against a large wagon, demolishing it completely. The debris was scattered in alt di rections for hundreds of yards around the fur nace. Tlie houses in the vicinity were shaken at though by an earthquake, breaking all the windows and many dishes in the cupboards. Children seated on chairs were thrown violently on the Door. "John Lutz was instantly killed. He was en gaged in tilling, with Shifter, and was blown from that over the casting house, striking the bell, carrying it with him. He was found in a run about one hundred yards olf, with his head and one arm blown olf. " He leaves a wile and several children. Jeremiah Conkling was se verely injured.
