AMUSEMENTS TO-NIGHT.
Gkovbk'8 Thkatkb.?? Handy Andy" and
"The Magic Shirt" are announced for to-night.
George (J. Charles and La Belle Emelie, who
appear to be tbe prominent performers here,
will ujome tbe principal parte; in tbe first
named play Mr. Charles appearing as tbe
blundering ?? Andy." On to-morrow (Na
tional Fast Day) tbere will a good perform
ance.
(Jantbrbcbv is still at the head of the list
so far as concert ball entertainments are con
certed. Tne reason is plain. Manager Lea
employs none but tbe best talent, and gets up
his performances in a style Commended by all
?who visit the resort. To-night there will be
another grand entertainment.
rkgikkntal Pkts.?Soldiers in camp are
proverbially fond of pets. But tbe oddest peu
we have yet seen were two bears which the
mh Maine regiment, of the l!?th corps, led
through the city yesterday. These bears were
brought all 'he way from Louisiana, and have
Veen in several tights. They have become per
fectly tame and tractable, and march along at
the bead of the band, with an air that indicates
tbev leel themselves veteran soldiers of the
brain order, and that they have a character to
sustain.
A regiment that passed through some days
ago had with it a mountain goat, captured also
in I<ouisiana, and which has been in several
hattlea and skirmishes. In one of the latter he
was seriously wounded, but by careful nursing
he got well. By reason of that wound, how
ever, that goat can never enter into the congre
gation, for reasons set forth in Deuteronomy.
Thk Pic-Nic at Lokfplkb 9?Yesterday, a
pic-nic was given at Loellier's Garden, which
closed with a ball at night. Tbe place was
crowded. About ten o'clock at night some
lighting was begun, giving a little exciting va
riety to the occasion. It appears that the par
ties engaged were the B'hoys of Crow Hill, and
soldiers from tbe hospitals, between whom and
tbe B'hoys an antipathy has existed for some
time. At a previous pic-nic they came in con
tact and tbe B'hoys got the better of the sol
diers, who were iorced to "retire in good or
der." Last night tbe soldiers were better pre
pared, aad the B'hoys were roughly handled.
Some of the combatants were wounded with
toil lies or stones, bat not serionsly. The police
ejected several of the disorderly ones, bat no
arrests were made that we hare heard of.
Ami/pkmkntb To-morrow.-All of the
theaters aad places of amusement will be open
to-morrow night. At Ford's a comedy enter
tainment will be given, and among the per*
