FRIDAY MORNING.MARCH 23, 1*66^ C: 1T Y A M > S r B r K B A N’. An Old Citmkn 111.—We regret to learn that Captain Sam Freeman, the worthy ami ef- j flcient Superintendent of the public buildings of the State in this city, lies dangerously ill. A Pugilistic Husband.—Charles Glenn, a negro, charged with whipping his wife, Sarah Frances Ann Archer, •* so-called,” had an ex- | animation yesterday before Justice Wade, and j was sent to jail for ten days. •-- — --- - Vert Cruel.—As a little Irish boy was | peeping through a hole in the circus canvass, j day before yesterday afternoon, in order to j catch a stolen glance at the performance, some j uoe inside rau a pin or needle in one oi his ; eyes, the sight of which, in all probability, he i will lose. At prescut his face is badly swolen, and he is suffering excruciating pain. A Runaway Pair or HoRses.—A pair of i horses,attachedtoa wagon belonging to Rowers j it Snyder, took Iright yesterday morning and ran off. On reaching the corner of Fourth and ! Arch streets, they ran furiously against the gas post, Upsetting tt and breaking the lamp. The wagon and one of the horses came off second j best in the collision. There was no driver . upon the box at the time of the accident. Tue Opera.—The Washington Star,speak ing of the Opera company who are to appear ; here next week, says: “Madame Ghioni appeared bere some years since in “ Don Jitan” as “ Donua Elvira,’ which character she rendered perfectly. Sn aini, the great basso prolundo, is well known and appreciated here, where he lias many warm friends.’* A Fight Among Fkkedmen.—Henry Price, a negro, charged with striking auother negro, named Henry Harris, on the head with a brick, causing it thereby to crack, (an unheard of and incredible thing,) was before Justice Wade, yesterday, who required security of him in the sum of #60 to keep the peace lor six months. Jack Daly, a butcher in the lower market, be came his security. Both parties produced an | innumerable quantity ol vvitnesse., but their I evidence amounted to but little. The Theatre—Arrangements eor the Spring and Summer Season.—Mr. R. 1>. Og den left last evening for New York city for the purpose ol meeting Mr. Dutlicld, with a v iew to making arrangements for the dramatic season, which will commence, under the management of the latter, on the 7th or Stli of April. Mr. Ogden expects to return in a few days. If the iprogrammi*, al present lixcu upout lkj Cmiivu out, we may confidently anticipate a brilliant and paving season. An UnuRaTKITI. Wretch.—More than a inouthago a iloliauder, named Harden, reached Richmond |>euuiless, ragged aud otherwise in great destitution. Mr. Danner, the lawyer, taking -compassion upon him, gave him a room and board, and put him iu the way of making a comfortable living. Yesterday morning, he re )>aid the kind offices ot his benefactor by de camping with his new overcoat and other arti cles of property which could be easily carried off. Such acts' of ingratitude are calculated to deter the charitable from doiug acts ot kind ness for strangers iu distress. Tiie Vitoixu Donation to Soctii Cako lina.—The one hundred and fifty volumes of reports, statutes at large and other law K>oks, donated by Virginia to the State of South Car. «dina—the State library of which was complete ly destroyed by the tire which followed the oc cupation of Columbia by the Federal forces last apriug—were forwarded last night by the Southern cars. It is due to that worthy old servant, Thornton, who is a part ot the State government, to say that he packed them with as much care as if they had been tine glass ware. We trust that they will reach Colum bia safely. An Art eucreo Bi rulary.- — A party of bur glars, perehauce a s*|uad of the multitudinous gang who have been depredating in and around the city,attempted a raid, on Wednesday night, upon the residence ot Mr. 11 illiam Hitter, who resides at the upper end of Franklin street. They were fortunately toiled in carrying out their intention, from the fact that Mr. Charles Howard, an inmate of the establishment, was awake aud was attracted by their initiator! proceedings. Finding they were observed, thev decamped minus their expected booty. What apity a copious dose of leaden pills was not administered to them on their retreat. Dr. Samson’s Lecti re To-niout.—Rev. Dr. Samson, the distinguished President of Colum bian College, lectures to-uight at Dr. Burrows’ Church before the Young Men’s Christian As sociation. Dr. S. is tuo.st favorably known here as a Christian scholar and an attractive speaker, i and the subject is well suited to elicit his finest efforts. We learn that the Association, whose record of good deeds is fresh iu the miuds of our peo ple, is exerting itself to collect auother library and to secure more eligible rooms. It should, bv all means, be liberally encouraged. Its uioral value to our community is inestimable. Let us have a full attendance at the 1«< ture to-night. Nabohu A!..—TheNew York • di;rn of March 17th, in au article headed “Rich Men ot the Day,” speaks as follows ot a well-known citi zen of our suburbs, at present a Delegate iu the Legislature from Heurioo: "Franklin Stearns, the richest man in the Old Dominion, under the new regime, is a Ver monter, who has passed thirty years in Rich mond ; been twice married, aud who is now worth in real estate and cash a million and a half of dollars. He was a violent Unionist, suffered in Castle Tliuuder, and never kept ConlWlerate scrip a week iu his pocket, but loaned it tor mortgages on all the farm-lands round. Every day enriches him, and as the benefits of peace and freedom are fully de veloped, he will probably be the proprietor, by the enhanced value of his lands, of twelve or fifteen millions. His mother is living—a tuerry wed and handsome lady of seventy—who talks ju the shrewdest Vermont idiom, and is a bat ten in herself, cut from the tireen Mountains. Stearns is one of the most exceptional men of wealth w.s have. His life is without a mean ness or a lie’ i he i* sagacious, but not educated, and his resilience, ou the slope of the James river, is s»iDgulJ*^y MUipU? Aud bcAUtilnl.

AU the works above mentioned are of in terest to the Southern j>eopl*, and there is additional inducement to buy them in the offer which Mr. Richardson makes ol fifteen per 4-ent. on the profits. No doubt the enlarged sgi’e would contribute to enlarged profits for the publisher, but at the same time he offers to give a g*«r centum ot that profit t" our s utter mg i>eopl»', and that in itself is welcome.

In default of one hundred dollars security he was committed to jail.

Scroggins said, “ times is so hard, and so many folks aint doin’ nothin’, that a fel low is 'hlecged to take any job be can get to do.” The Mayor discharged him, ow ing to the fact that the evidence did not sustain the 1 charge. M. Irwin was charged with having in his pos session a sow belonging to Euuic Anderson, a colored woman, w hich was lost some live I mouths ago. Anderson swore to the identity of the hog found iu Mr. Irwin’s possession.— Mr. Sizer testified to selling two hogs to Irwin, iu August last, one of which answered the dis cretion of the one in controversy.

Hates, (Whose health lias suffered bv his arduous labors), in the male department, assisted by Misses McCoull anil Lambert, and Mrs. at lington and her daughter in the female depart ment, have served the trustees aud the public faithfully for a number of years. The change is not with a view to displace any of these ex cellent teachers; but at this, the time of the annual election, to secure, if possible, the ser vices of a principal thoroughly versed in the details ol the system which lias worked so well in Baltimore, Charleston, and other cities ot the South. Reduced Pricks.—The public will be pleased to learn that the agent for the Opera, out <>f regard to the present condition of our people, has determined to reduce tiie schedule ol charges. It should bo borne in mind that such entertainments as we are promised cannot be furnished except at a very heavy outlay ol money by the manager. The terms ot admit tance now offered are below those which usually prevail. We are sure that the disposi tion manifested by those having ebarge of the company to accommodate themselves to the circumstances ol our people will be properly appreciated. See advertisement. Vaccine Virus.—Dr. James Bolton, of Rich mond, in the last number of the Medical Journal, states that he has a “ full supply of reliable vaccine virus, which it will afford him pleasure to distribute.

The Circus.—The laet that over two thou sand persons, among them many ladies, at tended Castello’s great exhibition last night, shows the estimate in which it is held by the community. Every performance included in hi> varied programme gives satisfaction. He remains here the rest of the week, and, ol course, will continue to draw crowded houses. Idle Nechoes.—Hundreds upon hundreds ol idle and unemployed negroes congregate from morning uutil midnight around the circus pa villion. These toil not, neither do they spin, uor are they arrayed more gloriously than Solomon. K.inu Cotton.—Charles Minor Cary was ar rested, yesterday, upon the charge of stealing a bale of cotton, lie enjoyed the distinguished hounr of being the only individual arrested during the day. Our city is, from appearances, improving in morals. Professor Bernhardt calls the attention of the readers of the Whij to his card iu the special column, and invites all who have de tects in their vision to call at the Ballard House and see hint.

Snperior to any other In use ; conitructed In accordance with the science and philosophy of nature in the pecu liar form of a CONCAVO-CONVEX ELUPSIS. Admirably adapted to the Organ of Sight and perfectly natural to the eye, affording altogether Iho besl artitlcial help to the human vision ever invented. Sold only by the Professor of Optics and Spectacle Manufacturer. THE ADVANTAGES of these spectacles ovor all others are : 1st. The oklt trpb lens known, mum perfectly free from chromatic light, so well known to be the cause of injury lo the vision, and which makes Iho change from Spectacles to Glasses of stronger power so often required, while both near and distant objects are seen with equal facility through the same glasses. 2d. Can bb worn with prkpbctbasb for ant lbnuth of rime at one sitting, giving astonishing clearness of vlslen, particularly by candle or other artificial light— comfort to the spectacle wearer hitherto unknown. 3d. CHANGE OP GLASSES OR SPECTACLES OF STRONGER magnifying power In most cases never required,should the delect arise from age, disease or premature decay —thus securing to the patient good sight during life. 4lh. When tiib byes ache or pain through the Ac tion of a bright light, such as is reflected from snow, sunny weather, white paper, and in reading, writing or sewing, or vivid colored bodies, these lenses, by soft ening the rays, effect a most agreeable sensation and a perfect cure. 5th. In all nervous affections of the eye, causing dull and startling pains in the eye ball or temple, ap pearance of luminous and dark spots in the atmosphere, aching or reeling like sand in the eye, the disturbed nerves are qnleted, soothed and entirely restored. 6th. Ground by peculiar machinery, got up at great cost, mathematically calculated expressly for the manufacture of this lens, so as to produce it with the true spherical accuracy, and its focus is at the exact centre, a point of vital importance, and which no other lens possesses. 7th. Proof op superiority over the old kind op Spectacles. They are used.exclnsively at all the hospi tals for diseases of the eye, in New Yorkand elsewhere. TESTIMONY OF RECOMMENDATIONS From medical gentlemen, clergy, distinguished offi cials and others: Richmond. Va., March 6, 1866. We have examined Ihe Lenses of Professor M. Bern hardt, and consider them superior to any we have eRer seen. They are aduiirablv adapted, not only to improve the imperfections of Impaired sight, but to relieve the weariness of vision which constant study produces.— Many of the Glasses are of new and Ingenious contri vance. We cordially recommend the Professor to all thoso who require scienliflc optical assistance. Portsmouth, Va., December 1, 1865. I owe you a debt of gratitude for the benefit yon have rendered me. Fur many years I have been aocnstomed to use glasses when reading or writing, and with pain more or loss to my eyes. You reii-veil me from all inconvenience. 1 caii now read or write for hours without any pain, and can see objects distant and near through the same glasses with clearness and distinctness that I have not experienced since my youth. I am gratefully yours, JOSEPH PLUNKET, Pastor of St. Paul’s. Richmond, Va., March 6, 1866. I can recommend, with entire confidence, the eye glasses and other expedients for assisting Impaired vision of Professor Bernhardt. The mechanical execu tion of his work Is very beautiful, aud the excellence of his glasses unsurpassed. After persoual inspection and use, I can truly say that 1 have used nothing which assists Impaired vision more perfectly. B. K. WhLFORD, M. D.

Turpin, deceased, offer for sale a valuable TRACT OF LAND lying on James river, in the county of Powhatan, containing about COO acres, of which about 250 are James river low grounds of Ane quality. This Farm Is very Droductlve. and well suited to agricultural purposo*. Hut its greatest value consists in the immense body of coal which is known to under lie it. It lies immediately on the river, fifteen miles above Richmond, about the centre ol what is known as the coarregion of that section. Valuable and pro ductive mines have been and are now in operation just above it, on Edward Scott's farm, and also below and immediately opposite, across tho river. A survey'has been made of this property by a skilful and experienced mining agent and subterranean sur veyor, who exprosses the opinion that “it presents the most favorable and unquestionable section of the coal basin-' which underlies that whole region, and be is further of opinion that this Farm contains “not less than 200 acres of this coal basin," thus affording an al most inexhaustible supply of coal immediately upon the banks of tho river and only fifteen miles from Richmond. The attention of capitalists is invited to this proper ty, as it affords an admirable opportunity fora safe and profitable investment, and it must bo sold. It is easy of access, being only three miles from “Coalfield. ' on the Richmond aud Danville Railroad ; and persons de sirous of visiting the place will find no difiiculty in reaching it from that depot.
