. RICHMOND WHIG.
THURSDAY MORNING-APRIL 19, 1866.
CITY AND SUBURBAN.
MrirfABT lysTiTiTE.—The Board of
Visitors of Vina institution were to Lave met yester
day in the Senate Chamber in the Capitol. Some
four qi live member* were present—not enough to
constitotoa quorum. They will meet to-day at 10
o’clock.
Jasks River ani> Kanawha Canal Company.—
The Board of Directors of this company are now
holding a sewiion. There is nothing before them
other than the ordinary current business. It was
expected that a communication would have been
received from the French company by tlie last mail
from Europe, hut noue has come.
Police Arrests.—Hally Parker, negro, charged
with stealing one stove.
Patrick Shay, charged with stealing iron, valued
at #'>*», from the Richmond and Petersburg Railroad
Company.
Temperance. —An enthusiastic admirer of aqua
pure sends us the following
‘ The state Council of Virginia will meet in
Waynesboro’. Augusta county, on tlie‘24th of this
month. The subordinate Councils should not fail
to send ileleestes. tn interesting and profitable
meeting is expected. Let the friends give the Tem
perance movement, unmixtJ with politicv, a long
push forward. The times demand it. • hir sober
judgment ia needed in times like these. Forbid
that drunkenness should be added to our ealamities
so woefully accumulated.”
Fire.—t*ti Tuesday night, about twelve o'clock.
- Bowen ,V Page’s bakery, near Rocketts, was burned
to the ground. The building was about 26x60 feet,
two stories high, and was joined to the dwelling
house occupied by Mr. Page. The dwelling occu
pied the front of the lot, the bakery the reur. and
some of the parties who first discovered the lire say
that it originated in a stable and shed in a lot ad
joining. while other* maintain that it broke out in
tlie rear of the bakery, near an alley. Mr. Page's
family (he was in the city himself, at another estab
lishment of his.) were roused up by tlie neighbors,
and the dwelling house was saved, bat in removing |
the furniture and stock some thieves took advantage
of tlie confusion and helped themselves liberally.—
There was work done in the bakery that night or
the preceding day. The shed in which some parties
say the tire broke out is on the lot of a Mrs. MiWon.
who keeps a groccy or groggesy. and whose pre
mises had been attempted to Is* fired some two or
three times. That the fire was the act of an incen
diary there is no doubt, and suspicion rests on a ne
gro who was recently brought Iteforc a county ma
gistrate on charge of stealing from Mr. Page's store,
but who was acquitted for want of sufficient testi
lnonr. Tlie bakery was insured for sixteen hundred
dollars. ___
Drs. Moore and Hopson.—The Rev. Dr. Moore, of
the First Presbyterian Church, of this city, will
leave about the first of May for Europe. The fact
that the trip, in addition to the pleasure it will afford
him. promises to materially improve his health, will
reconcile his congregation to the separation.
We also hear it rumored that the Rev. Dr. Hopson,
of Sycamore (Disciples) Church, of this city, has an
itk '** accepting a call to a tield of labor in the
yfest We trust that such is not the case, as the
church beR under his ministry has largely increased

Commissioners of the Revenue in Jefferson aud

upon business men. for the purpose of issuing these
licenses, and many persons are not prepared at once

Wyman.—There is (nothing ^wonderful in the fact
that Wyman draws nightly overflowing houses, at
Metropolitan ttyll. when it is remembered that, in
addition to his startling wizard tricks, he nightly
disposes of a large number of beautiful and valua
ble gifts. We need hardly say, to those who have
been, that the enterlaiuiuent alone is worth the price
of admission.

from Northern and Western journals, speaking in the
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 Tit is no humbug, but is, as the African

Snplotmknt for Ladies.—The most eligible, profit
able employment we have heard of for ladies is the
sale of certificates for the Great Gift Distribution of Ar
randale A Co. A lady of our acquaintance has been
very successful in this way, not only In filling her own
purse, but also in doing a good turn to those to whom
she sold the certificates, an will be seen by ouradvertl
aing column*. Gentlemen can also be thus engaged.—
Sew York Sunday Mercury, Aug. 14, 1865.
The British Whig, of Kingston, C. W., says, Novem
ber 26, 1864 :
“One of our lady subscribers became an agent for Ar
randale A Co., and by reqnest brought some twenty ar
ticles, sent as prises for her agency, to this office for in
spection, and without hesitation we can state that each
and all of the articles were worth treble theamount of
the recipients, and some of them six times.”
AGENTS.—We want Agents in every regiment, and
in every towu and county in the country, and those act •
tng as such will be allowed 10 cents on every certificate
ordered by them, provided their remittance am unts to
one dollar; also other inducements which can be learn
ed on application. Agents will collect 25 cents for
every certificate and remit 15 cents to ns, either in cash
or postage stamps.
