RICHMOND WHIG.
THURSDAY MORNING....MARCH 15, 1866.
CITY ANDSUBUHHAN.
The Hrsrisus < «>crt.—The Hasting* court
was not iu session terday.
Provost Court. Owing to the continued
indisposition of Juu o McEntee, there was no
session of this court esterday.
* Resisted a Policeman,—John McNier, ar
rested for resisting and abusing a policeman
while in the discharge of his duty, was bailed
in the sum of 9300 to appear before the Mayor
this morning.
More Claims.—in addition to the claimants
for compensation for liquor destroyed at the
time of the evacuation, and a list of some of
whom we gave yesterday, we observe Hebener
A Co. as in for 1110 gallons.
Home Manufacture.—The plan of the
Church Hill and Union Hill Association, for a
joint stock company to issue work to hundreds
of needy women in the Northern and Eastern
suburbs, will be presented at the Third Pres
byterian Church, Church Hill, to-night, by
General Wise and others. A full attendance
of ladies and gentlemen and liberal additions
to the stock list of the proposed company are
solicited. This is a good and holy work ; so
* aid it all you can.
The Church and Union HiliA Buildixu
Fund Association—-This Association, under
the general law of incorporation passed by the
General Assembly, was yesterday incorporated
\>y Judge Meredith. President, John Net
tles; Directors, C. B. Lipscombe, A. W. Rich
ardson, H. A. Atkinson, K. S. Pollard, G. W.
Thomas and B. Davis ; Treasurer, C. W. Peth
erbridge ; Trustees, G. W. Baker, J. O. Austin
and W. II. Craig ; Solicitor, J.H. Sand9; Sec
retary, R. E. Richardson. The books of sub
scription will be opened at the office of the
Sheriff of Henrico county, immediately, and
will remain oyen for ten days.
The Approaching Opera Season.—We have,
in a previous issue, alluded to the a'pproachiog
season of the Grand Italian Opera, at our
Theatre. The Ghiont and Susini 0|#ra Com
pany, comprising nearly forty members, under
tbe direction of the popular Impressario Max
Strakosch, will, on the 28th of March, inaugu
rate a series of musical entertainments, which,
we hope, for the credit of our citizens, will be
well patronized. We are assured no pains or
expense has been spared in the organization of
this now popular Troupe, and the Operas to be
performed here will be put on the stage with
all the care and necessary attention to details
which so far has been the secret of their great
success in all our Southern cities in their pro
gress to this place.
The M ayoralty.—It will be observed that
our former Mayor, Mr. Mayo, who served so
long, so successfully, and so acceptably as the,
Chief Magistrate ot this city, announces him
self a a candidate tor that office. Major Stur
divan., who was.named in connection with it,
has published a card declining to run. Whether
or n« • the present popular Mayor designs being
a cat didate we caunot say. We have seen it
intimuted that he does not propose being a
caud late. It is not often that three persons
are named in connection with an office who can
$ present such imposing claims as these three
gentlemen. One has already announced him
self a« out of the field. It would be unplea
sant to witness a contest between the other
two. CaU it not be so arranged as to avoid
_k - ......toot
An Attempted Bacon Raid.—Several nights
ago, Mr. Daniel Delaplane, who resides on the
Brook road, about eight miles from the city,
was aroused by a noise in the neighborhood of
his smoke house, lie got up and proceeded to
ascertain the cause, when the thief, finding that
some of the inmates of the house were astir,
beat a hasty retreat. On examination of the
smoke house Mr. Delaplane discovered that he
had been digging below the lower frame work
of the building, with a view of entering after
the luauncr adopted aiming ferrets. The pre
sumption is very strong that he is one of the
idle and dessolute lit 'linen who nave been
subsisting upon the subs ince which they have
managed, since the evacuation of Richmond,
to steal from the termers of that section.
If business couth no dull iu Richmond it will
not be because of lack of enterprise among our
merchants, or for want of store accommodation
whereiu to carry it on. In the burnt district,
especially on Cary street,some very tine build
ings indeed have been put up, and among these
we notice the establishment ot Stone, W ilson
X Foster, second door below Pearl. This is
really a superb house. It is 27 feet front by
130 "deep; has an alley 20 fcet wide on one
side, an alley 6 feet wide on the other, a va
cant space at the rear ; is four stories high, in
cluding basement, and has three doors on the
East aide, and the whole front is one door in
partitions. Passing by there we recognized an
old Johnny in the person of an old friend, to
wit, B. M. Quarles, formerly with Thomas
Jones. The stock of goods is iarge and select.
Call in and see.
Henrico |County Court—Grand Jurt

Mayor’s Court—Yesterday—Mayor Saun
i>krr Presiding.—Lisbon Harris, charged with
stealing a bull, of the value of #5l>, from P.ob
ert S. Sheiburn, of Hanover county.
Capt. Seal testified that Harris was arrested
ottering the bull for sale; he confessed the
theft, and first gave his uame as Jones ; he of
fered the bull to Swartz, the butcher, lor #30,
who bought it; but, before paying him the
money, ascertained that the bull was stolen.
Harris was sent on for trial before the Hust
in %’* Court.
,"he case of A. J. Berry, charged with vend
ing lottery tickets, was continued until Mon
day.
The ease of Mordeeai Shenault, charged

The case t'f Eliza Felton, charged with keep
ing her store >peu on Sunday, was continued
until to-day, .*o ascertain whether she sells
liquor or not.
Mr. Bangs’ Reading T*»-Xight.—The un
Just imputations heaped upon Mr. Bangs by
Foruey’s Washington ' ftroaiefe, because he read,
bv request, at his recent “ Evening with the
Poets,” two ot John R. Thompson’s poems in
honor of two fallen Virginians, whose errors,
whatever they may have been, the green sod of
their mother Virginia covers, will not diminish
the elite audience which had previously de
termined to greet him to-night, on his second
.appearance as a dramatic reader. Were we to
m eet Sheridan—who proved his *• loyalty not
jjV words but by deeds—at the grafc of
eitfce.” °* these Virginia Cavaliers, we feel we
vcould . uy, without violating good taste or com
mitting tTeaaon :
Plant vou no nettle on his grave,
Where flowers biooiu at early morn,
And weeping willows over him wave
Their mouratN plumes when day is gone 1
But weave a garland, fresh and fair,
Of flowers bathed in Virgin dew ;
’Twere a holy thing to Jay it there,
An oil ring fr< m a foe like you!
Again, will Mr. Bangs read Annabel Lee, (of
which Virginian' » U never tire, so long as it is
„s touchingly a..- expressively rendered as we
he.ird it the ottur night, at the Hail ot the
House of Delegat *,) “Ihe Old Grenadier,”
<i \n<i AH Sang i. uie Laurie,” “ The Charge
ot'the S'X llundr ,1.’’ These and other gems
from the p°et» " ill constitute the recitative
part of the ente- umment. Mr. Grant, ot whose
great power anu cultivation as ft vocalist it is
scarcely neceJWWV to speak, and Mr. Knauff,
one of the best amateur pianists we have heard
for many a day, have kindly tendered their aid
to Mr. Bangs.* It needs no labored appeal from
the press to secure a large assembly of beanty
and intelligence at the Exchange concert rooms
to-night. __ _
Charqed With Stealing a Watch—Mor.
decai Shinault, a resident of Caroline county,
charged with stealing one watch, valued at 175,
was arrested Tuesday, about ten miles beyond
Millford, by Sergeant Howard and Detective
Goodrich. The prisoner states that between
three and four years ago, while in the State
Guard, he found the watch, and gave it to bis
wife to keep. She continued to bold it until
Ihe evacuation, and, at that time, being
.oat of money, he offered the watch for
«ale to eeveral parties in Richmond. At that
gjme he Md not, however, succeed in sell
I
ing It. A few day* after this he made an
exchange with a man named J. A. Moore, on
Broad street, the keeper of a wood-yard, for a
mule, he (Shinanlt) paying #18 in specie and
the watch for the mule. The party, Leroy,
whom the watch was stolen from, says that it
waa stolen from :s vest pocket. Both parties
j were at the time .^embers of the State Guard.
| Leroy, for one oi ■■•o years past, it will be re
membered, has i'een treasurer for the New
Richmond Theatre.
Coal and Combination.—Nome of the coal
merchants in this city are said to have entered
into a combination to keep up the price of coal,
and signed their names to a paper obliging each
other to stick up to certain prices. The big
dealers.it is alleged, got the lesser dealers
into this plot, but as soon as the latter ran out
of stock, then the former went round to the
customers of the lesser dealers, aud, in order
to secure their custom, offered the coal at less
than the combination rates. The lesser deal
ers, in the mean time, getting in a supply, be
gan to sell to their customers at the reduced
rate, whereupon the big fellows called another
meting, to be held, we believe, on Saturday
next, the object of which is to compel said les
ser dealers into the original terms of the com
bination, to wit, to charge fifteen dollars for
anthracite coal; the big dealers, in the mean
time, threatening that if the little ones don’t
come in, they, the big fellows, will drive said
little fellows out of the market by selling coal
at a nominal profit. Now, some of the lesser
dealers are ottering anthracite at #13 50, and
say they can make a living profit at that, and
hence we will endeavor to get the names of all
parties who want to fiecce our citizens.
Robbed.—Edward Chiles, a newsboy of this
city was robbed yesterday morning, on Gover
nor street, of eighteen dollars by three negro
men.
Radical Groan.—We do not credit the ru
mor that James W. Iluunicutt intends starting
an ultra Radical paper in this city.
BISI.NEVS NOTICES.'
“Frost Fack.”—Fifteen people, whose names
will go down to posterity as the marplots of Con
stitutional liberty, have had before them The
great Virginian who now sits in a literary presi
dential chair at Washington College, and have ques
tioned him with all the low cunning of pettifoggers.
Not a shot did one of those fellows ever tire during
the war—adopting the motto: “I'll stand behind
your back while your nose is brokenbut now. that
the war is over, they are full of valor against a beat
en foe.
Before them sat Lee. serene and superior as when
he stood in the front of battle at the head of his gal
lant gray jackets, and while they, with ignoble
sneers, sought to affront him, ha presented the
“ front face’’ of a soldier and a gentleman. Many a
time did that great commander, beloved by all who
admire gallantry and true manhood, make a suc
cessful tiank inarch: and if any one wants to see
how he looked with his face to the miscalled Recon
struction Committee, or what his profile Is, let him
goto Lowe A Brother, between Main and Franklin,
on Seventh street, and there he will see the very
finest photographs of “ Master Bob” that have yet
been published. t!o and see, and see if we are not
right. _
A Bcrst.—Many things go on a “ bust," nowa
days, such, for instance, as the Fenians, on “ St.
Patrick’s day in the mornin’,” (by the way, if the
Fenians don't take care, they will burst up unuttera
bly.) the divisions of the friend* and sou* of tem
perance, under the hydraulic pressure of their quar
rels over “cowld watber,” (if it was whiskey we
wouldn't be astonished), steam boilers, when too
much “ cowld wather" is tin own in—showiug the
aforesaid friends aud sous, as we have often said be
fore, what a daugerous fluid that same “ cowld wa
ther” is—Congress of the U. S. {unholy society), with
Thad the Thug at its head, which will soon be re
solved into its original atoms by its own resolvings,
and so on. aud so on. But our business now is to
talk of steam boilers.
Aa Phillips. Irish orator (by the way. he was a half
Fenian, advocating with one side ol his mouth the
British Constitution and with the other Irish liberty,
two things as incompatible as oil and water), once
said, we live “in an age of portents and prodigies,”
far every day is bringing forth something new. One
Dr. Laniner, Englishman, did at one time demon
strate to his own scientific satisfaction that a traus
Atlantic voyage by steam was impossible, bnt never
theless, in a short time afterward, the Arcturus, we
believe it was, crossed the Atlantic safely and speed
ily under steam. From that day to this nieu ot
science have devoted themselves to the improvement
of steam-worked machines, with a view to securing
safety, but so far they have failed. Now, however
Joseph Harrison, Jr., of Cray's Ferry road, Fluid
delplna, says he has discovered the grand desidera
tum, by the construction of a boiler which consist?
of sundry cast-iron hollow globes, about elf*hunches
in diameter, uuited in layers such as in a cubical
shape, for instar ith iron rods, and each of which
globes is a steam -ator of itself. Mr. Harnsou is a
millionaire and usiastic machinist, aod con
tends for it most jg v that his boiler is the best
ever invented, ami we are obliged to coufess that
studying it with ull the care possible, there is great
plausibility in his theory. It so happens that we hau
a good deal to do at one time with machinery, anu
we have not seen yet anything that has more in
terested os than this new boiler. We could describe
it accurately if it did not take up too much space.
We must therefore be content with referring to Mr.
Hanison's advertisement in this paper, ami sayiug
that, while we are no agent of his, and have no pe
cuniary interest whatever in the invention, we will
describe it accurately to any one who may call on
us. Head advertisement.

BOILER MAKERS.
rpHE IIAKK1SON B01LLK,
X A SAFE STEAM BOILER.
This new Steam Generator combines essential advan
tages IN ABSOLUTE SAFETY FROM EXPLOSION, in
first cost and cost of repairs, durability, economy of
fuel, facility of cleaning and transportation, not pos
sessed tfy any other boiler.
It is formed of a combination of cast-iron hollow
sDheres. each eight inches In external diameter, and
three-eighths «>f an inch thick. These spheres are held
together by wrought-iron bolta, with caps at the ends.
The form is the strongest known ; its strength to resist
Internal pressure very great—unweakened as it is by
punching or riveting, wntch lessens the strength of the
wrought-iron boiler plate about forty per cent. Every
boiler is tested by hydraulic pressure at 4o0 pounds to
the square inch. IT CANNOT BE BURST UNDER ANY
PRACTICABLE STEAM PRESSURE.
Under pressure which might cause rupture in ordinary
boilers, every joint in this becomes a safety-valve. No
other steam generator possesses this property of relief,
under extreme pressure, without injury to itself, and
thus preventing disaster.
It Is not affected by corrosion, which soon destroys
the wrought-iron boiler. Most explosions occur from
this cause. It has economy in fuel equal to the best
boilers, arising from the large e tent and nearness to
the fire of Us heating surface, as also from the waved
line of this surtace, which, thoroughly mixing
the gases, induces better combustion, and.
the fiame, causes the best to be more effectually ab
sorbed than in the ordinary tubular ore*tinder Duller.
It gets up steam quiekly, and with f“®*’
produces superheated steam without separate appara
tus, and is not liable to or-rning or foaming. ItU easily
transport, and may be taken «P»it so that no pl^e
need weigh more than et.nty pounds^ In difflcull
places ol access, the largest boiler may be put tnruugh
an opening one foot square H I* readi.y cleaned in
side and out. CnJer ordinary circumstances, it i. kept
free from permanent d-po-lt by bio Ing the water en
tirelv out under full pre-ure once a k. llrequlres
nnanecial skill In it* management Injured part* can
be renewed with great lacillly, as 'bey are unDorm in
shaDe and siie. When renewed, the entire boiler re
mains as good as new. The greater part of the boiler
will never need renewal, unless unfairly used
A boiler can be increased to any extent by simply
adding to it* width, and being tbe multiplication of a
single f,,rD1, 111 remains the sffme for all sixes.
It has less weight ai d takes less than one-balf the
j,round atea of the ordinary cylinder boiler, without '
being increased in height.
Any kind of fuel may be need, from tbe most expen
sive to refuse coal dust.
Tbeie are over one hundred of these bolltrs now Id
use, some of them in the best establishments in Eng
land and in this country.
