He yesterday caused Charles B. Duncan, at comer of Main and .Seventeenth streets, to remove his goods from tbs sidewalk, which they obstructed. Dangerous Bridge.—“ Praise tbe bridge that carries yon safely over," cannot be said with truth of the dilapidated Cauai bridge, beyond Mayo's bridge. It is broken in several places, and vehicles have to make au abrupt descent of at ieaai a foot before the bridge is struck. It should be repair d before an accident of a serious nature occurs there. The DRoraHr amd the Wheai Crop.—Far. m.rs iu from the country say that uuleas rain falls soon the wheat crop will be permanently in jured. Nature is athirst under a still hot October i sun. and the earth lies on her back imploring the Heavens tor rain. R tin, r in. come again, W»ke the spirit in the g am Give us plenty tor oar pain.

Justified.—We are pleased to be able to place on record tne following statement irom u. -a. o. Gillispie, Assistant Provost Marshal in this city. •• Mr. 0. W. Pnrvit, of Albemarle county, who was arrested by be miltary authorities upon charges of alleged improi.e1' dealing in horses purchased from the Government or the United Mates baa upon a fall investigation of all the facts beeu honorably discharged." We are really much gratified to have the op portunity of pntting this justification before the public, tor vte know Mr. Pnrv.ato be a Virginia gentle; an entirely above any mean or unwor thy action. Parcn Wore.—Everybody, It would seem, had gone to patching—patching cp houses, patching cp farming implimeats. patching up everything save old clothes. In the last article everybody is anxious to get out of the old into tne new. This exhibits a woeful lack of economy. Tf.,/advent of a great many finely and fashionably dressed Northern people Into oar midit Is no reason why the Soatbe.n people shou.d rush into the vortex of extravagance. Modesty and plainness would better become us, ss a people, who have emerged from a great war. efier suffering greater depriva tions than any other people that hiatory records. The mania now is for fine clothes, and brilliant, if not genuine jewelry. We don’t see the necessity of it. Richmond Examiner Redivivc'.—The patrons of the late Richmond Examiner, which went under upon the oocnpation of Richmond by the United States forces, will be glad to learn that i< Is to be resutrected by H. Rives Pollard, Esq., who, yes’ertiay, o‘tainen a ep* cial permit to that •fleet from Major General Terry, commanding the Department of V.rginia. Of course, it is unne cessary to say that the Examiner will be con ducted upon -ound Union principles, with a hearty support of President Johnson and I is policy. A* far a* possible, it will be afar simile of it# former self, iu tyoe and sentiment, recog nizing the tact that ti e Union of the Mates is sn una terable fact. Mr. Po.iard who is well known by Ms former connection with ’he Examiner, and more recently with the Richmond 7dmc«. has pur based'be g od will and subscription hooks of the Examzitr, and proposes to resume i s pub lication so soon as the necessary material and presses can Le obtained, and an office diced up. AxrssxENrs.—We understand that Meesrs. CnrncToes A Dickaey’s minstrel troupe have en gaged the New Theatre for a two months per fvrmance, to commence shortly.

With the “Sioiehas To rah ” the Autumnal Festivals close This eve ning, Wednesday the eleventh, commence* this feas-, and terminates on Friday evening, it is called the Feast of Tabernach-s because when t ie Jews came oat of bondage thay dwelled forty rears in booths or huts, nnt.l ther arrival in Canaan. This is commemorated by the building of tabernacles, which are cor ered with leaves and branches, and the interior* are taatefnlly ornamented with flowers, carpets, looking-glasses, 4c. One of these tabernacles is attached to almost every synagogue in this coun try. In Earopean countries there is a tabernacle built in almost every place contiguous to a Jew ish house, where meals an taken daring the nine day*, and the male members of 1 he family off-.r np their prayers. This, also, is tha Festival of j the Harvest. Branches of palm tree* and citron* are naed in the services, lor it i« ojmra inded that | “ ye shall take the boughs of goodly tree*, and branches of palm trees, and the wuljws of the brook, and rejoice before the Lord.” The last day is made a day of great rejoicing. It is the Feas; of the Law. for on this day the reading of the five books of Moses is finished.— That is to say, a portion is read oa Siturdays. and feast and fast days, so that, at the end of the year, the reading of the Law is finished, which is the occasion of great rejoicing in religions way. A Swindler Caught.—On Monday eveaing last, after dark, a man entered the store of Joseph Lipinaki, clothiers on Main street, between Nine teenth and Twentieth, and after making teveral purchases, amounting to twenty-five dollars, ten dered a check for fifty dollars, payable to C. W. Williams or bearer, io payment, purporting to have been signed by Messrs. Spotts 4 Harvey, and which was represented as being as good as gold. The purchaser received the goods and twenty-five dollar* in change, and departed. Yesterday morn ing Messrs. Spotts 4 Harvey pronounced the check a foigery, and Lipinski and his friends at I once commenced a search for the man who had so j successfully swindled him. At a late hour iu the I atternoon he found his man on Main Btreet, and the party at once laid violent band* upon him. After 1 numerous threats and seme resistance, be was j taken to the police station, where lie gave his | name as Alexander D. Cheat wood. He was , searched, but nothing but a few old letter* and two ! stencil olates were found. Cheatwood was recognized as a young man, i who, a few years ago, was in good standing in the community. Dating the war he, however, com milted numerous forgeries, for which he was sen tenced to the penitentiary for nine yiars. He was subsequently pardoned on promise of joining the Confederate army. Whether he ever lultilled his promise we are not informed. We understand that be was at one time engaged in business as I clerk for Messrs. Spotts A Harvey, and was al.-o : for a while with Messrs. Lathrop A Chrhtl in — When we last saw him he had been presented by Captain Roche with a pair of iron bracelets and put in qnar'ers where the dogs couldn’t bite him. He will be brought before Judge McEntee this morning. Saps Breaking.—On Friday night last the office of N'eal, Leigh A Co., corner of Virginia and Cary streets was entered by some eateipris ing burglar or burglars, and the safe (one of Marvin A Co.’*, New York) waa broken into and one hundred and fifty dollars in greenbacks and a gold watch were extracted rherairom and carriel ; off. The safe was broken into at the back, and there was bat little trouble in doing it. for the iron is little more than thin sheet witn about two inches of plaster inalde and a thin boarding at the b.vk of that—one of the compartment boxes war taken out, and the back of this, which ii of cast iron, not more than an eighth of au inch thick. w«» cracked easily and the work was done. We regret to be obliged to say that the>afe is not what weex pocted to'find it. and we suggest to Marvin A Co. to gee to the matter. I Public Meetings.—There will be several politi cal meetings this evening, when candidates will fire their last shot and make a last appeah One will ta«e place at Rocketts’ Wharf at hall-past five, P. M., when Martin Meredith Lipscomb will j address the voters.

Fire.—Yesterday morning, about eight o'clock, the bells of the city rung an alarm, tlremeu were called from their breakfast tables, and the various steam and other fire engines were promptly manned. After all, the alarm was ascertained to have been canted by the accidental ignition of a few artiles in a bureau drawer in a house on Sixth street, between Broad and Marshall. The flames were soon extinguished, with very slight damage. Appointments.—The Governor yesterday ap pointed Mr. E. B. Nalls flour Inspector for the city of Alexandria, Virginia. George L.

BUSTNESS NOTICES. Eclipse.—The poor moon hai the ahiae taken out of her recently by what those sky detectives, ca led astronomers, name an eclipto: but Luna being a rival of Sol. is deteimiced that the shine shall be taken ont of him, too,—and so, on the 19th, the god of day will get a slap on tbs face that will give him a black eye, or, in astronomer words, he will be eclipsed. Astronomers and eclipse are hard worda — in fact thsy are the jar Son got np by people who make money br se'liag ictionariea,whereas “star g.izers'' and “dark ness" would express the whole thing. Let in tell yon what an eclipse is. Did yon ever sail at night on Chesapeake Bay in a little boat ? If you did, von must have seeu a light-house. Well,- if the fine steamer Georgians or Agnes pissed between you and it, then, of coarse, yon lost sight of the light.— That’s called obs juration—in fact an eclipse— (hence poor people are called obscure, because they are lost sight of altoge'her by the ri.-b ) Well, now, this world of ours ia like an apple stack with pins all over ihe heads diverging from the centre in every direction—(the pins represent ns poor mortals ) Then there is a whole lot of other balla, and all (headkwffl constantly whirl ing about in spice like a danc-ng part), to a music of oar own. to wit: the music of the spheres—(wonderwhat Dr. Hcpaon think - of that music!)—and when one of them yets between two others, of course it obstructs the view ac cording to its size. Thats the whole thing lu a nut-ahelL Therefore, don’t bother yours If with algebraic quantities, celestial globes, s.nes and cosines, calculus, logarithms, Euclid, Ac., Ac . but just get a piece of glass, smoke it, and you will see the •• dark aide of nature." If you want to see the bright side, though, go to William Tay lor's, and look at the forty hogsheads of bright aides he has (or sale. Astronomy ia a humbug, compared with them. Excelsior.—Thia ia a big word—very. Trans lated. it means “Spread Eaglo” “E Ploribus Dnum," “ Y nkee Doodle Dandle,” “Stirs and Stripes," Ac.. Ac. It represents, too, what is bet ter than all, Andrew Johnson. President, who is a head and shoulders above ail malignity and lit tleness. B are President he—the radical’seiemy, the poor man’s friend—equally opposed to aris tocracy and the rabble. Excelsior is he in all its broad st senna—e'en more, he is an Excellency excelaissimoa. There are other things, however, which are excelsior, too, and among them Fun aton A Set field's lanterns, flags fire-cracke s tor pedoes Ao., which can be had at Xo. 9. Dey atreet. New York.

PRSSIDEST JOHNSON AND THE COLORED TROOPS. Washington, Oct. 10.—President Johnson re viewed the returned colored troope, to-day, it the Executive mansion, after which he made a brief speech, in which he said that liberty did not con sist of being idle and worthless, or in doing as one pleased. There mutt be submission to law without regard to color. Liberty consisted of the glorious privilege to work—each one pnrsuicg his avocation in peace with industry and economy—and to eDjoy the productions of our own labor. Virtue and Intel' ligence we>re the standard to observe as their rul ing principle in life. If the experiment of taking fonr millions lately freed and incorporating them in onr system did not work harmoniously, then they must separate as distinct people. If the laws of Providence required that they should separate, Providence would point the way. They were to take to the land of their inheri tance, if there was one before them. Db. Mmn’s Attkmtkd Escape.—A Fortress Monroe correspondent says of Dr. Mudd's at tempted scape from the Tortugas: As heretofore pull shed, the doctor enjoyed un usual liberties 0:1 the island through his being de tailed in the hospital department. Taking ad vantage of this lioerty, he managed to secrete himself in one of the coal bunkers of tbe etiamer Thomas Scott. When he was found to be missing a most thorough search of the steamer was instituted to And him. and the search was very near abandoned, and tie idea of his concealment on it given up, when aa officer who was assuring in the search thrust the point of his sword into the doctor's face, causing him to cry out and thereby make known h>s place of concealment. The doctor lay wholly hid under the coal except a portion of his face. On his discovery he was taken back to pri son andpnt at hard labor, which occupation he is likely to follow for some time. The Quartermaster of the Thomas Scott was subsequently arrested on a charge of complicity in aiding Dr. Mudd to escape. There have been no changes in the dispo sition of the other assassination conspirators. A correspondent writing from the Dry Tortogss discovery: Search was then made for Spangler, Arnold and O’Langhlin bnt they were all found inside of the walls. Mudd seemed in great confusion, and I haven’t the leaRt doubt but,w hat his brain was s rmewhat mudd'ed. The dictor is now enjoying the dungeon, aud a bran nm pair of bracelets for both wrists and ankles, w The Value of Legal Opinions.—A dis tinguished Judge of New York was testify ing in a court a few days since, and on being cross-examined was asked if he thought the question was so clear that lawyers would not differ about it. He promptly replied that no question could be so clear that lawyers would not differ in its decision. Progress of the Opera.—In Louisville, one hundred and eighty thousand dollars hare been subscribed toward building an Opera House. German citizens contributed 540,000 of this sum The Journal says it is assured that the full sum necessary to build a house which will lival any of the temples of music in the country will be speedily ob tained.

E3-AN EXCELLENT NOMINATION.—The Richmond papers of yesterday contiin a corres pondence between a numb. r of the most respecta ble and influential citizens of that city and CHARLES PALMER, Esq., an old and distin guished merchant thereof. The subject of the correspocdsnce is an invitation to Mr. Palmer to become a candidate to represent Richmond in the next Senate of V irginla, and its acceptance by that gentleman. It gives ns great pleasnre to chronicle this proceeding in oar sister city, though it is to be regretted that it was so long deferred. We hope, however, that it is na too late, and that Mr. Palmer will be returned by a large majority. He u peculiarly fitted for the trust at this particular time, inas much as there will be no difficulty in his takiDg his seat if elected. His ripe commercial experi ence and general ittelligeace will render him a valuable representative, apart from nia unques tionable ability to take the oath of office consist ently and conscientiously, which, in the present condition of our affairs, is the paramount con sideration. He is, withal, a high-minded, gene rous-hearted and estimable gentleman, as all who know him will testily.. Bis letter of acceptance is couched in terms and breathes a spirit eminent ly worthy of the occasion, and cannot f. H to win public approbation.—Petersburg Express.
