Tux Opera ?Linda" It one of Donizetti's
1part attractive works, and we are surprised
that it remains in the "modern repertoire. We
must, however, say for Miss Kellogg that she
makes the most of it. Her modest appearance
in the first set, in the character of a plain Savoyard
maiden, and the rendering of the cavatina
"O luce di quest anirna," in an unaffected
manner, yet with great delicacy
and finish, charmed every listener. Whilst
her voice is not the most powerful, yet it
is fresh and pore, and her intonation perfect.
We cannot speak more favorably of Mad. LuAlley's
Pirrotlo than we did of her Atuctna of Monday
night. It was most unsatisfactory. Signor
Kan coo i, as an actor, hu no superior on the
lyric stage, but his voice is almost gone, and
whilst he made all he could out of the character
of Antonio, the role of Critpino suits him much
better. Lottl is a fair singer, but a poor actor,
and whilst Fowati and BariH were acceptable,

Society.?The second card reception at Gen.
Sherman's last evening brought oat an unsually
large attendance of distinguished guests. At a
comparatively early hour the throng commenced,
and by ten o'clock the spacious rooms
were literally packed. Among those present
were Secretary Kobe son, Senators Trnmbull,
Patterson and wife, Corbett and wife, Stewart
and wife, Edmunds, Sherman, Warner, and
Drake; the Speaker and Mrs. Blaine, and Representatives
Washburne and Welker and lathes:
Ex-Attorney General Evarts, Ex-Senator Dooiittle,
and Ex-Secretary McCullocb and wire;
Generals McDowell, Marcy, Dent. Badean,
Dyer and wife, Foe and wife, and Cols. Dayton
and wife, and McCoy and wife; Admiral Porter
and wife, Admiral Powell and wife, Admiral
Bailey and ladies, Commodore Smith and ladles;
Gen. Giles A. Smith, 2d Assistant Postmaster
General, and ladies, Assistant Attorney General
Field and wife: M. Catacazy, the Ruwian Minister,
and t number of other foreign representative*;
together with ?large gathering of Dotablea
in public and prlTate life from Washington and
the several States and Territories. At about
half past tea o'clock Prince Arthur appeared la
the parlor, accompanied by Minister Thornton
and several members of his suite, lie vas presented
to the members and friends of Uenerai
Sherman's household and to a number of the
distinguished personages present, and during
his stay he was of eourse the cynosure of all
eyes, and won many compliments for his modest
manly bearing and his frank intelligent countenance.
General and Mr*. Sherman received their
guests with their accustomed cordial btmkomU*,
which does so much to make all visitors at their
hospitable mansion feel comfortably at ease.
In this pleasant duty they were assisted by their
daughter, Miss Minnie, and Mrs. Judge Bart,
ley, of this city, and Mrs. Judge Granger, of
Ohio,?the former the sister, and the latter the
niece of General Sherman.
The display of elegant toilets was unusually
jargo ana nruuant, no in cum respect tne aeKnblt|tlait
evening hu not been surpassed
by any of the ?i-b?. After the withdrawal of
Prince Arthur the crowd was sensibly diminished,
and an opportunity wao then afforded for
the many beautiful and fascinating ladles preoent
to properly display their attractions of dress
ud grace of mower. The party wpanlad
about midnight,?all delighted with themselves
and with the events of the evening.

PRINCE ABTHI B.
At the clone of the reception at the While
House yesterday afternoon, Hiss Nellie Grant
with Prince Arthur, led the way to the Conservatory,
followed by Mrs. Thornton and General
Badeau, and the gentlemen of the Prince'*
suite in company with General Babcock. The
beautiful dowers and plants were the object of
admiration by all the visitors, and the Prince
expressed his gratification at the privilege afforded
to indulge his pet taste. Miss Nellie ob
tained a beautiful camelia, which she gracefully
presented to Hi* Royal Highness, and the Prince
accepted it with many thank*. Some time was
spent In examining the rare plants. From the
Executive Mansion the royal party visited Brady's
Photographic Gallery, where several tine
pictures were made of the Prince and his suite.
At the dinner given by the British Minister
last night, the Prince sat on the right of Mrs.
Thornton, and Speaker Blaine on the left.
Senator Hamlin, of Maine, sat next below the
Prince, and Senator Morton,of Indiana, next to
Speaker Blaine. At the opposite end of the
table Mr. Thornton presided.with Senator Cameron

In going to Madeira, the Plymouth made very
fatt time, sailing about fourteen knot* an hour,
and anchored in the harbor of Funchal
two or three days before the Monarch arrived.
While laying there a stormy southwest wind
arose, and the vessel was in danger of being
driven on shore, so that it was found necessary
to ship cable in standing to seaward and to run
into a safe position. The Monarch was discovered
at anchor off th* town of Stanna, on
the other side of the island. Both vessels
then cot under wav ?n/f
with strong toil favorable northerly winds
for Bermuda. The Monarch sailed quite
slowly in comparison with the Plymouth,
the rcrew being bat little used, in
order to save coal. Under these circumstances
the Plymouth proceed in advance of the Monarch
to Bermuda, where she remained nine
hours, taking in fresh provisions and such dispatches
an were there * awaiting the fleet.
She afterwards joined the Monarch and both
vessels tlien sailed direct for Portland, making
use of both sail and steam power.

more banking facilities should be extended
to tbe South and West, as pro|<os>d
by the bill, and also thought that banks established
on a firm baata would supersede the pre*- j
ent banks. He hoped the Finanec Committee

wonld be apeedily pained a.- it came from the
committee.
Mr. Sumner raid no withdrawal of hank circulation
can be made from the Ka*t without proda
"injt the mom aerioa* derangement. To produce
financial trouble in New York is to produce
it throughout our whole country. Any UtMtriba
Hon or the circulation is nrces*arily ungual,
and if a distribution was nude to-dav apparently
equal, it would in a few montiis be
unequal. He could not deem it fair to cripple
the banks of New York. Philadelphia and Boston
by depriving them of circulation, when tbejr
had come torward and advanced #l3n,?on.<iOO in
gold to the Government in 1*?>1 to carry on the
war. He regarded the provision looking to free
banking on a coin basis as impracticable and
inexpedient.
HOUSK.?Mr. Hay (111.) introduced a resolution,
which was adopted, directing the Commit- |
tee on Mines and Mining to investigate the
causes which led to the late A von dale disaster,
and to inquire if it w as in the power or Congress

Mr. Co* (K. Y.) introduced a resolution directing
tbe General of the Army to inquire whether
any officers of the armv are ser\m? in tw?th ?
military and civil capacity, and n c-iring salaries
for both, and to report to the Houso; and if
true what orders have been issued on the subject.
Adopted.
Mr. Van Tramp (< ?hio) introduced a resolution
directing the Secretary of the Treasury to
furnish to the House a statement of the amount
ot accruing interest the Government has paid to
the Pacific railroads and their branbhes.
and the amount of interest paid by said roads;
also, the amount of freight which these roads
had transported for the IKnrenuMiit, and Uu
rates charged for the same, and the rates
charged for the transportation of Government
troof?; also, wb;~ the statement of the amouut of
such bonds had been omitted in the monthly
statcment of the public debt, ?&e. The resolution
was agreed to.
Mr. Churchill (N. Y.) offered a resolution,
which was adopted, calling on the Secretary of
War for information in relation to improvements
in the harbor of < tew ego.
Mr.Wood (N.Y.) offered a resolution inquiring
oi tue i'ostniaster lieneral by what authority
blank petition* for tlie abolition of tbe franking
privilege bad been sent through tbe mail*, and
bow and at what cost they were printed. Objection
was made, when Mr. Wood demanded the
regular order, and the House resumed the consideration
of the league Island bill.
Mr. Washburn (Win.) opposed not only the establishment
of a navy-yard at League Island,
but tbe establishment of any Government yards.
He believed private \ards could build venal*
cbeaiwr and better. He gave notice of hia intention
to introduce a bill establishing Tour lines
of ocean steamers, the vessels to be of a class
that could be made available by the Government
as war steamers, as the necessity arose.
Mr. Hill (N. J.) coinhatted some of the state
menu of Mr. Dawes, a few days since, and contended
that the Government was economically
administered.
Mr. Calkin (N. T.) supported the bill.
Mr. Kandall (Pa.) said the only real objection
to the bill had been presented by the gentleman
from Massachusetts. (Mr. Dawes,) in his able
address the other day. That was a good speech,
an Important speech to the tax-payers of the
dbnntrr. He then proceeded to mow that the
gentleman's ideas of general economy were not
applicable to the league Island bill.
Mr. Dawes said that it wu ?Hnilnjul
frUuuls of the side that it was of no value, unlns
followed by an appropriation of MOO,000. The
question before the House was whether It was
prepared to expend this amount to prepare the
way for the removal of this yard. The more he
thought of the large amount of estimates presented
the more he was satisfied the people were
not able to bear the burden.
Mr. Kandall thought it was hardly fair for the
gentlemen to use an extravagant estimate of the
V T_ ? ^?

advocacy of economy was no new thing on bis
ride of the House, the Democratic partv stand
before the people an it* advocate*. JThe place
where the shoe pinched was there, it this bill
pawed it was the end of New London.
The main question was then orderedMr.
Starkweather (Conn.) urged the recommittal
of the bill, and threatened the defeat of
the appropriation to carry it into effect if the
bill was not recommitted.
Mr. Woodward (Pa.) charged the friends of
the bill with inaincerlty in Raving it involves no
appropriation, when an estimate of *800,003 was
at the Navy Department ready to follow the
bill. He agreed with the gentleman from Massachusetts
(Mr. Dawes) that this was no time for
so large a public expenditure. He had voted

against the League Island bill, and woald then
be in a situation to vote against all the extravagances
enumerated by the gentleman from Massachusetts.
It was hu opinion that the sale of
the old yard would never secure the establishment
or the new one.
Mr. Schotteld (Pa.) said there had been a misapprehension
of facts. The bill did not contemplate
an appropriation. All who had opposed it
seemed to hare argued from that standpoint.
At the eonclnMon of Mr. Schofleld's remarks

Mr. Dawes moved to lay the bill on the table,

Mr. Connolly read the resolution.

Mr.SiNidgraw would not accept the proviao.
Mr. Klvai? here took the chair and Mr. Baaby
addre?aed the association. stating that the Alex
andria, Ixtidon and H*iu|>shire Railroad waa
an Alexandria affair. They had worked for It
tor 'JO yeara; had burdened their town with debt
to havip the road. It must be manifest to every
g. ntleman that the money Washington should
put in that road would benelt Alexandria.
t2,0M),(NM had already been subscribed and |uud

of Virginia, but the legislature h?l panid an

and they had never b- en able to pa> even that
amount. It the city of Waahingtonahould ?ib rribe

would build a sw itch front Pour Mile Run to

then ooit the ctty nearly a million to bridge the
river.
Mr. J. Savle* Brown thought Alexandria
would aem be a rival of \\ a^hin^um. Th?

here.
Mr. Kavliy thought Alexandria had batter

Mr.lKnodgram did not want too many rulers
on Mr.Crocker'* resolution*.
The putwtitute of Mr. Kaaby was rejected,
and the original resolution adopted.
Mr. J. 8. Brown announced that Hon. Mr.
Burr, a member of the Houae from IUioom,
would addiem the amociation At the next
meeting.
Mr. Elvattf thought a vote of aympathv aboaM
be tendered Mr. Brown. Every meeting he announced
that at Um next IMft'lUK

when the ni^ht of meeting came the member

The Richmond newspaper* of jeatordtT all
hare editorials commenting upon the admission
of the State, from which we extract the following:?
The Ditpatd (which rapports the present State
Government) says:
This event is one that should be highly gratifying
to as all. It is indispensable to the poUucal
and i>hysical we It are of Virginia that ah*
should be admitted to equality with the ritatas.
and that she should have a local government of

-lit- could not be at ewe?without tht? Thw.fore
we ought to consider the reoUu *tu>n of Virginia
as an event lraught with very great beaetiu
for tw all- We shall have a restoration of
contidenee and a revival of enterprise. We
shall have a gradual sad healthy increase of
means, along with the Increase*of numbers and
energies, that will put a new face upon Virginia
affairs and i aptdly Increase ber wealth and bur
weight in the Yntoa.
The bill that has passed, as we said yesterday,
docs not practically Increase the hardships of
reconstruction- Tike conditions added were
" the offspring or uutiinely and*unworthy fear,
distrust and hate," as Mr. Greeley says. They
were insulting, bat of no great consequence.
