T. Allen, whilst dining at the Club Rooms, corner
of Main and Seventh streets, had his pocket re
lieved of a fine gold watch.

dier. fell Into one of of tbe op*n places on Frank

kirn oat. Being intoxicated he tscapvd ser.oua
injury.
Director of th« Penitentiary.-Governor
Pe rpoint, yesterday, appointed Mr Richard F.
Walker, one of the proprietors of the Rtpublic
i ewe paper, a Director for the Penitentiary, in
place ot Andrew J hasten, Esq., resigned.
Cut Reociatio.n'3.—Wo are pleased to see tha1
Major Croft, Chief of Police, ha3 commenced the
enforcement of the city laws in regard to mer
chants obstructing the side-walks with goods. 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.
We bav suffered tnuen in vain.
Ire Steamers.—The steamer State of Mary
land. of the Powhatan Steamboat Company, ssila
for Baltimore at o’clock, M.. to-day. Freight
receive ! to-day up to 10 A. M.
The Puiladelphia and Richmond Steam Packet
Company dispatch a steamer to Phiiadetphi a to
day.
Tne steamers of tbe Old Bay Line aud New
Line run daily.
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.

Jewish Festivals.—For the last few weeks t
seriea of very in eresting holidays have been ce
lebrated in our midst by the Jewish community
rv#7 ^ called th* Autumnal Festivals, am
o-ened with the Rash Ha,bona," or new year
Then following the " Ten Day* of Repentance
-rwime with the solemn fast of * Yom Kippar.’
f>n the Evening of the fourteenth day of ” fuh
' ” Feast of Taberaac’os commences, cor
branding this year with the fifth of Octob r o
christen era these are mire cheerful am
ill solemn. which we have duly loticed In th
t!Tntv-third chapter of Leviticus it is command*
;zlive in tents a.ven days and to have a hoi;
convocation on the eighth day. At preset thi
f*»uTil continue* nine day*; the first two, and
the lMt two are holy days, and are observed by a
ceMition from work and attendance thrice daily
at the Synagogue. During the succeeding five
day*, it U allowed to follow those occupation* by
which one gains the means of subsistence. The
ninth day ia called " Simchas lorah, or The Re
joicing of the Law." With the “Sioiehas To
rah ” the Autumnal Festivals close This eve

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

There will be another meeting at half past siven
o'clock at Bai ey’s 'old place, on Oregon Hill,
when Mr. Lipscomb will fire another big gun.—
All the candidates and everybody are invited.
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

in Madison Ward will meet et the City Hall, st 12
o’clock, for the purpose of making the arrange
manta tMAaaanro fYtr hnlHinir aikirl nlAPtlnn
morrow.
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

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 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.

of their merits are on everybody’s bps. Once
tried, they become indispensable. In many parts
of the conn ry they have displaced all other sub

CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE.
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.
A large uumber of ti.e most respectable and
highly Influential citizens having called upon Mr.
Charles Palmer-to announce himself a candl ate
f,r the Statl^ienate, that gentleman has con
|jented>o alloNktho use of his name, and will no
‘ dpubt ol^electein If every section of Virginia
would select such btate representatives as Mr.
• Palmer will assuredly make, we should have m^re
reasqu to congratal te ourselves upon the pros
■Tftct of the early restoration of civil law. Without
any exception, Mr. Palmer has more influence
with thq authorities than any min wLose services
can. be secured as a Senator.—Petersburg Ex>
