RICHMOND WHIG
SATURDAY MORNING-MARCH 31. 186
CITY AND SUBURBAN.
The Catholic Chib* h.—The leading art is
connected with “ the Opera” will sing at tl
Catholic Church on Sunday next (Easter)
The KeursE *>e the Mo*>x Last Night.—I
ten o’clock last night persona on the stre
were convinced that something was the matti
with the moon, as one-third of its surface wi
obscured. By eleven its entire surface wi
covered, and gas lights were decidedly iu d
maud.
A Stew.—We have all been in such a ste
for some time past that the best thing we ci
do now, by way of change, is to get some ste
into us, which we and you can do to day
Tom Gridin's, who will serve a Brunswic
good enough tor the Duke of Brunswick hiti
self if he were alive to partake of it. Rea
what Tom says in special.
A Max Shot.—A difficulty occurred yeste
day evening, about halt-past live o’clock, iu tl
bar room of DitTner & Nichols, on Main, b*
tween Seventeenth and Eighteenth streets, lx
tween Mr. Nichols and Mr. Wendall. M
Wendall drew a pistol and tired twice. Tfc
first shot passed through the front window <
the bar room, and the second lodged iu Mi
Nichols’ right knee. It is said that W euda
was drnnk at the time, but he neverthele
managed to effect his escape alter accompli*!
iug his purpose, and is still at large, lie g<
away through the old United State* Hotel
which several hundred persons surrounded o
hearing of the occurence, with a view to hi
capture.
Milk and 1’cklic Health.—Complain
is frequent, in this city, of the quality c
milk with which oar citizens are furnished.-*
An eminent physician once said to us that tin
failure of physicians prescriptions, in man;
Instances, to produce a cure was cither owinj
to the drug* being adulterated or substitute
being compounded for the articles prescril*ed
and that the spread of disease was, iu no smal
degree, owing to the infamous adulteration «i
articles of food. You can hardly get anythin!
that is not adulterated—tea, codec, bread, am
dozens of other things are “tloclored,” an*
among them milk. The pusxage of the metro
politau health bill recently by the Lcgislatur
of New York has stirred up things greatly ii
great Gotham, and extraordinary rascalities an
being developed in the way of the adulteiatioi
of food. Here's an instance: A farmer t'rou
Hudson, in Jersey, used to ride into New \ orl
with a cart load of milk, the cart brilliantl;
marked “pure milk.” It was discovered tha
the milk, so far from beiug pure, was a corajx>
sitiou of three-fourths water; one-fbarth pur»
milk ; enough of grease to make the liquii
oleaginous: and enough of white starch to giv<
it consistency, and a piece of toasted crushet
sugar to make it creamy. Now, wedon’t kuov
how the Richmond milk is adulterated, excep
tliat it lias a strong look of James river wate
and chalk ; and mayhap it would be well fo:
our board of health to look into these matter
a* the New York inspectors are. At the saim
time it is utterly unreasonable to expect the
members of the board to do duty for $160 t
Year each. A board with such a salary wi!
nrove a larce. The geutlemci composing tin
hoard are thoroughly competent lor the work
but they cannot work tor nothing. It would hi
better to spend $1000 on them than on Ambrust
L. White-' gas report, wliieh was all gas.
The Opera To-siuht.—For thi' ev.-nint§
Mr. Strakosch has sc I ec toil the opera which tell'
in fitting music the sweet aud touching story <>
Luc in Ui Lnmrnermoor. Even the unmusica
public have heeu luatlo acquainted, through tin
witching pen of Walter Scott, with the sad bui
lancinating narrative of this love that went al
wrong, but it will not be amiss, with rcfercnci
to tho performance to-night, briefly to rehears*
the leading incidents:
“ Sir Edgar Ravenswood, a poor hut prom
Scotch nobleman, becomes enamored of Lucie
the sister of Lord Ashton, who holds the for
feited Ravenswood estates, and is still furtbci
embittered against Sir Edgar, by |w>!itical pre
judices. Added to this, he desires to effect a
marriage between Lucie and Lord Arthui
Bucklaft, that he may repair a Ibrtune some
what impaired by dissipation. Lucie, however,
loves the laudless Edgar better than the Lord
of Bucklaw, and when Edgar is sent on an em
bassy t<> France, she plights her troth to him.
While in France, Sir Edgar dispatches uiau\
fond missives to his lieloved Lucie, but they
are intercepted by her brother, who is evei
ready, beside, to put the worst construction
ujkiii the apparent neglect of the absent lover,
Lucie, however, still loves, in spite of neglect
and her brother, annoyed by her steady faith,
and urged ou by his personal wants, not less
than by bitter bate of Sir Edgar, at last forges
a paper tending to prove that Sir Edgar is un
faithful to her.
Toru by conflicting emotions, glowing with
love, tortured by jealousy, and goaded almost
to madness by the ceaseless taunts andsolicita
tions of her brother, the unhappy Lucie al
length, uuwilliuglr, consents to become the
bride of Bucklaw. The dreaded marriage
takes place ; but amid the festivities of the
guests, after the newly-wedded pair have re
tired. groans are heard proceeding from the
nuptial chamber; on entering which Lord
Bucklaw is discovered bleeding to death. The
storm of passion lias proved too much for Lu.
tie, and now, in wild mania, she brandishes the
sword of the husband whom she has slain, me.
nacing the horror-stricken guests. Soon hei
senses return, but only as life departs. The
terrible event which completes her catalogue
of miseries, and precipitates her death, startles
and wakes remorse in the heart ol Lord Henry
Ashton, her brother, and he contemplates, with
mingled terror and grief, the result of his
machinations. Sir Edgar returns to take a last
look upon her whom he loved aud deemed
falsi*, hut is undeceived—finds that she has
been faithful unto death, and mingles his tears
with those of her preceptor, Raymond, over
the sad fate of the unfortunate Lucie.
• The scene of this Opera is laid in Scotland;
and the (acts upon which the plot is based oc
curred in 1661).

REAL ESTATE.
The sale of real estate has become dull and de
preciated. Property which was bought after the
evacuation, on speculation, has now to be put into
the market to meet obligations, and the prices oh
tainahle are far from what the purchasers expected
to realize. As an illustration of the couditiou of
the market, we may stub- that a lot which was
110ught on speculation iu August last at $68 per foot
was put up at auction yesterday’, and the highest
bid was $36.

WHAT THE PRK38 SAY OF DS.
By this arrangement tho advanltges must surely be
on the side of tho customer, for he ha* everything to
gain and nothing, comparatively, to lose. He knows
what he will get for a dollar beforehand, and he need
not seed for it if he is not satisfied. All orders addressed
to Arrandale A Co., No. 1(17 Broadway, New York, will
be promptly attended to.—.V Y. Daily Setcs, August 6,
1364.
The Lafayette (fhd.) Daily Courier, March, 1866,says:
•• A better selected, more varied or fashionable assort
ment of jewelry cannot be found on the continent than
Arrandale A Co. are now offering. Messrs. Arrandale
A Co. occupy a high position In commercial circle*, as
men entirely above the common trickery of trade.—
Their statements may be implicitly relied on, both as to
the character of their good* and the manner of the dis
posal. Ladles, especially, in all parts of the country
are realizing hnndsoiuo profits a* agents, and if any of
our fair readers desire to interest themselves In it, they
may do so with perfect confidence.”
Great Gift DisTRintmox.—A rare opportunity is
offered for obtaining watches, chains, diamond rings,
silver ware, etc., by Messrs. Arrandale A Co., at No.
167 Broadway. They Itavu an Immense stock of arti
cles, varying In value, and are offered at one dollar
each. The distribution is very fairly done ; you agree
to take a certificate of a certain article enclosed in an
envelope, and are not required to pay your dollar un
less you are satisfied with the article, which will cer
tainly be worth tuoro than that amount, and may be
$60 or $100. An excellent mode this of investing a
dollar.—Sunday Times, Sew York City, February 19th,
1866.
We have impeded, at the office of Arrandale A Co.'s
Agency for European Manufacturing Jewelers, a largo
assortment of fashionable and valuable jewelry, of the
newest patterns. We also noticed a large quantity of
silver plate, and understand that the whole of these
newly Imported article* are to be disposed of on a no
vel principle, giving great advantages to buyers, and
affording extensive employment to agents. We know
the firm in question to be respectable and thoroughly
worthy of public confidence, and recommend our
friends to read their advertisement.—AVrn York Albion,
Sept. 3, 1864.
Messrs. Arrandale A Co. have long been personally
known to us, and we believe them to be everyway
worthy of public confidence.—Seu> York Scottish Ame
rican Journal, June. 11, 1864.
We have some very pretty specimens of table and

Feb. 16, 1866.
Jrwelbv.—The attention of onr readers is invited to
the advertisement of Arrandale 4 Co., which appears
In our ulmnos this morning. They propose to dispose
of a stick of English and French jewelry, valued at a
million of dollars, on a novel plan, which is fully ex
plained in their advertisement. They furnish, as will
be seen by reference to their card, several extracts
from Northern and Western journals, speaking in ihe
highest terms of their reliability, as well as praising
their mode of disposing of their goods. Their place of
business, No. 254 King street, is constantly thronged
with an eager crowd, which fact of itself is pretty good
evidence that it is no humbug, but is, as the African
a s- wont to express himself In bygone days, “true and
true ting.—Charleston (8. C.) paper.
Xmpi.otmext pob Lames.—The most eligible, profit
able einplovuient we have heard of for ladies is the
sale of certificates for the Great Gift Distribution of Ar
randale 4 Co. A lady of our acquaintance has been
very successful'ln this way, not only in filling her own
purse, but also in doing a good turn to those to whom
she sold the certificates, aa will be seen by our adverti
sing colnmns. Gentlemen can also be thus engaged.—
St io lurk Sunday Mercury, Aug. 14, 1865.
The British Whig, of Kingston, C W.,eays, Novem
ber 26, 1864 :
“One of onr lady subscribers became an agent for Ar
randale 4 Co., and by request brought some twenty ar
ticles, sent as prtieK for her agency, to this office for in
spection, and without heaitatlon we can state that each
and all of the articles were worth treble tbs amount of
the recipients, and some of them six times.“
AGENTS.—We warn Agents in every regiment, and
in every town and county in the country, and those act
ing aa such will be allowed It) cents on every certificate 1
ordered by them, provided their remittance am Mints to

two gallons of most of the lubricators generally n«ed.
3d. They stand 32* Beau me and Ho* Fahrenheit,
which is very near the weight ofhperm.
4lli. They will stand a heal test of 2<si“ Fahrenheit.
5th: They will not chill at lo‘ below Zero.
tHIt. They contain no acid, nor lias any acid whatever
been Used in their manufacture.
7th. They are free from all impurities, and are war
ranted not to glint; but, on the contrary, will preserve
machinery free from gummy accumulation*
