perior to any that conld he manufactured there here- |
tofore. A portion of the machinery has arrived. It I
comes from Manchester, in England.
Robbed or a Dinner.—The pantry of a gentle- :
man on Ross street was entered on Saturday by some I
hungry thief who carried off all the dinner which i
had been prepared for Sunday. By the raid he got

quantity Of pastry—enough, by tlie way. if bis
family is small, to serve them several days.
The Theatre.— Miss Helen Western commences |
an engagement to-night at the New Richmond The- '
atre. Her reputation as an actress is so well i
established that the mere announcement of her I

house. The Management have made the following

cle and orchestra seats. 76 cents: reserved seats, one
dollar; parqnette, 80 cents; family circle docents’;

reached this city Saturday afternoon on the cars
from the North. The party are stopping at the
Spotswood. The Washington correspondent of the
the 'New York THbsse. in his letter of Firday

days. His movement has no further significance
than a visit to his sister, wife of the present Post

increase blooded stock, and the scarcity of money
in Virginia._______

(so-called) in Trouble.—On Tuesday, on the ar
rival of the Richmond boat at Washington, two of
the passengers—Edward Jones and Miss Kitty Fyffe
a well known danseuse— got into an omnibus to go up
town, and on the way an altercation took place be

that they should go to the St, Charles and she to an
other place. He ended the matter by striking her sev
eral times in the face and about the head, bruising
her considerably. Officer T. A. Clements, of the Sixth
Ward, noticing the disturbance, arrested Jones, and
took them both before Justice Morsell, who com
mitted Jones to jail for court. It appeared from
Kitty's statements that she was in Richmond oat of

money to pay her board bill, he paid it voluntarily,
as also her fare to Washington: and on arriving there
ahe wished to go immediately to her friends, to which
be objected._

Stonewall Jaceson.—Gen. Colston, who was a
colleague of Gen. Jackson in the faculty of the Virgin
ia Military Institute, will, at the request of many lead
ing citizens of Ricbmond.deliver his lecture on the life,
character aud services of Geu. Stonewall Jackson,
at Virginia Hall, on 9th street, near Main, on Thurs
day evening next. Gen. Colston is one among the
most finished scholars of the South, and his contri
buttons to its literature have been characterized by
a clearness, force aud beauty which, added to an im
pressive delivery, eminently fit him for the holy task
he has undertaken. He knew General Jackson in
timately in private life before the world knew what
manner of nun he was, or dreamed that under the
diffidence and modesty which marked his daily per
formance of a monotonous routine ol duty, there
slumbered a military genius destined in time to make
him a name before which all others of modern times,
except the great Corsican, will pale in history. Gen.
Colston has already delivered this lecture in Balti

they have requested its repetition at an early day.

Jane RiVia and Kanawha Canal Cohcant.
The Board of Director* of this company met on the
IStb instant, and were in session two days. The
President (Colonel Elli*) laid before the board the
following letter:
« London, March 24. 186b.
“ Gentlemen: 1 have received on the 19th instant
a copy of your resolution of the 22d February ult- -
In reply. 1 beg leave to say we accept the charter It
is difficult to say now when we vrill take the budd
ing of the canal. U depends in a great degree upon
the promptness with which you will furnish us.with
the information and documents we want. « e as
sure you that we are doing all in oar power to meet
your views.
** 1 am, with great respect, gentlemen.
** Yonr very obedient servant.
“E. Billot dks Mixiiiis.'
The Board then passed a resolution authorizing
the President “to appoint D. S. Walton, or some
Other competent engineer, as an assistant to the
chief engineer, in preparing the detailed estimates.
Ac., of the line of the canal from Covington to the
Greenbrier river,” also, a resolution authorizing the
chief engineer “to employ Mr. Francis Peppercorn
as » draftsman for the purpose of preparing the
maps of the line of the canal as located between
Buchanan and GrwDbrwr ri¥*r.
The fallowing resolutions respecting freight, were
also adopted by the Board
Rtsolrtd. That on all freight coming down the
canal from Lynchburg, or beyond, to Richmond,
and on all going up the canal from any point east
oi Richmond, to or beyond Lynchburg, there shall
be a deduction of 20 per cent from the tolls on the
hrst and second class goods, and on manufactured
tobacco, flour, corn and hay provided, the owners
.of freight-boats shall satisfy the toll-gatherers that
.they have reduced their charge for freight in each
.case to 12J cents per 100 pounds on first class goods.
10 cents per 100 ponnJs on second class goods, and
„n manufactured tobacco; 8 cents per 1U0 pounds
OB flour and corn, and 16 cents per 100 pounds on
hay, between Richmond and Lynchburg, and
making a rateable redaction in existing charges to
and from points on the canal beyond Lynchburg.
Rtsolrtd. That in cases above mentioned nc
charge zhall be made for lock-toll or dockage.
president, in accordance with the reeolatiot
concerning the appointment of an assistant engi
ueer, has appointed Mr. Walton, who is well keowc
for his higVreputation as a hydraulic engineer. It
was be who constructed the ship-lock and tide-watei
connection, and he was at one time chief engineei
of the eastern division of the canal. The chief ea
gineer. in accordance with the resolution concern
iug the employment of a draftsman, has appointed
Mr. Peppercorn. Mr. Peppercorn is an accomplished
draftsman. The maps of the line from Richmond
to Lynchburg were prepared by him.
In connection with this subject we may state that
we have heard from good Authority that Bir Mortot
Pete, when In Richmond, stated that he, and othei
Ig'J.''-■HJIUJgHBgM"""
capitalist* fiaoclated with him. would. In *11 proba
bility, be tW contractors for the canal works.
It will be noted that E. Bellot des Minima says
that the time when they will begin work depends in
a great degree upon the promptness with which the
Board of Director* will famish him and his asso
ciates with the information and documents they
want. From the steps taken by the Board, it is cer
tain that there will be no delay on their part, and it
is plain that it is to the interest of E. Bellot des Mi
meres A Co. to commence as soon after they are fur
nished with maps and plans as possible: for, as haa
been said before, material and labor can now be pro
cored in this state on terms most advantageous to
the contractors.
Mayor's Court—Mayor Mayo Presiding.—
Edward Anderson and Charles Butler, who were ar
rested for being on a spree, on Friday, were dis
charged in consideration of their general good char
acter. The Mayor admonished them to be more tem
perate in their libations in futnre.
Henry Marshall, a negro garroter and thief, ar
rested for robbing Collin Nash, a colored mau. from
Sussex, of *30, on Wednesday last was sent on for
trial before the Hastings Court
Fred Stephens, from the North, but no relative of
Thad. was sent on for trial for drawing a pistol and
threatening to kill Eli Williams a mulatto. Ste
phens was locked up.
John Wilson, from New York, who attempted to
pick the pocket of a lady passenger on the arrival
of the steamer John Sylvester, on last Friday, a
week, was before the Court, but the evidence against
him was insufficient to convict him. His Honor,
however, informed him that unless he left the city
by to-day he wonld have him arrested aud punished
under the vagrant act.
The case of Pat Shay and Tim Sullivan, charged
with stealing *50 worth of iron from the Petersburg
Railroad Company, was continued until to-morrow.
Interesting Cases in Court.—There are now
two cases on trial before Judge Lyons, in which the
widows and children of Atwood and Crawford, who
died during the war, are plaintiffs, and the New
Jersey Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Company, de
fendants. It seems that both parties, previous to
their death, tendered the company's agent iu this
city, the amount, in gold, due on their respective po
licies, but he refused to receive it, and the company
now resists the payment of the sums for which their
lives were insured. Messrs, Crane A Dooley, John
son A Gaigon, aud McIntosh are counsel for the
plaintiffs, and Mr. Howison for the company. Mr.
Howiaon made a motion to remove the cases to the
United .States District Court, in which, by the way,
none of the plaintiff's counsel can practice, because
of their inability to take the required oath. The de
cision in these cases is looked for with much interest
by the bar and the public generally.
An Iron Breaker.—Locked up in a cell in the
Henrico county jail is a man named Chustain Hamp
ton, who has been sent on by the Justices on a charge
of horse stealing. Hampton was fastened to the floor
with iron anklet chain and ring, but in some myste
rious way he smashed the anklet as if it was only a
woman's garter. He was ironed again smash again
—and so for seven times in succession, to the great
bewilderment of the blacksmith, who swears by
No tools have been found in the cell by which the
smashing could be done, unless they be concealed
in his clothes, which, we believe, have not been
searched, and the clerk of the court, as soon as Hamp
ton is left to himself, can hear the sound of his work
in casting off his irons—which, by the way, it ap
pears be does in derision of his keepers, aoi not with
any view of making his escape.
Another Bvrglar Killed.—We are a lie to
chronicle the gratifying intelligence that another of
the burglars who have been of late operating in this
city and vicinity has been killed while engaged in
the act of house-breaking. A few more similar
cases will have a most salutary effect in rendering
the tenure of property more secure. Yesterday
morning, before the good people of Manchester were
astir, Mr. John Vanghan, who lias a grocery store in
that “ borough,” heard a noise which convinced him
that some one was breaking into his house. He im
mediately seized his pistol, and going quietly to a
point where heconld view the situation, found a ne
gro. sure enough, in the act of breaking into his
store. Drawing a bead upon him. he polled trigger
and killed him almost instantly, the ball passing
through his head. An inquest was subsequently held
over his body, when the jury rendered a verdict in
accordance with the above facts. Mr. Vaughan was
promptly discharged.
A Catholic Priest Robbed of Forty Dollars.
Father R. H. Andrews, of the Catholic Church of
this city, recently collected *40.50 for his church,
which he deposited for safe-keeping In a wardrobe
in his chamber. On Friday morning he left home to
give spiritual comfort to Shields, the murderer, leav
ing his servant John, alias Henry Cooper (colored),
in charge of his premises. During his absence.
Anna Cooper, the wife of John, came to the house
and remained awhile when both she and her hus
band left. On his return Father Andrews found his
wardrobe broken open and the money gone. Both
of the negroes have been arrested and are now
locked np to await an examination upon the charge
of having perpetrated the robbery. None of the
money has yet been recovered.
Police Arrests.—The following persons were ar
rested by the police during Saturday and Sunday:
Susan Archer, colored, for assaulting Mary Jack
son, colored.
Sam Dwyer, for beating J. P. Perkins.
James Powell, colored, charged with stealing a
trunk of clothing.
Death of Dr. William S. Green.—On Wednes
day morning last. Dr. William S. Green, one of the
most prominent and useful physicians of Danville,
died at his residence in that place after a brief ill
| ness.

of exacting from the States lately in rebellion, as a
conditon precedent to their restoration to the Union,
the acknowledgment of their obligation to pay the
principal and interests ot their respective State in
debtedness incurred prior to the rebellion, made
the following report, which was accepted, and the
- committee discharged:
“ That the voluntary action «f those States since
the suppression of the rebellion furnishes gratifying
evidence that no interposition on the part of the
General Government is needed to secure the results
asked for by your petitioners.
“ No one of the States lately in rebellion has
shown any disposition to repudiate their liabilities
incurred prior to the war. On the contrary, most of
them havejalready reacknowledged that liability,
and many of them have also been engaged in de
vising ways and means for paying off the accumu
lated interest and providing for the future payment
of interest and principal.
••Your committee are informed that the State of
Georgia has already authorized the issue and sale of
new bonds sufficient to liquidate their entire back
interest, to the payment of which the proceeds of the
new bonds are to be applied.
** The State of Florida has gone further than this,
in inserting in her new constitution, recently adopt
ed. a provision that all the individual indebtedness
of her citizens, existing prior to the rebellion shall
be held as valid, legal claims against them. Other
of these States are taking such measures for resuming
the payment of interest on their bonds isaned before
the rebellion as their present limited means and im
paired credit will permit
•• Equally honorable sentiments have been mani
fested by most of the citizens of those States which
are indebted to the North for purchases made antece
dent to the war. Few, if any of them, have failed to
acknowledge their obligations, or to provide for the
future payment of such portion of them as their re
duced assets will allow.
•• In view of these manifestations of honorable sen
timents at the South, on the part of botWWates and
individuals, it is believed by your committee that no
action on the part of the General Government is call
ed for." _

WHAT THE PRESS 6AY OF DS.
By this arrangement the advantages must surely be
on the side of the customer, for he has 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. 167 Broadway, New York, will
be promptly attended to.—*V F. Daily Ftios, August 6,
1S64.
The Lafayette (lad.) Dally Courier, March, 1S66,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 circles, as
men entirely above the common trickery of trade.—
Their statements may be implicitly relied on, both as to
the character of their goods and the manner of tho dis
posal. Ladies, especially, in all parts of the country
are realizing handsome profits as agents? and If any of
our fair readers desire to Interest themselves in it, thoy
may do so with perfect confidence.”
Gbkat Gift Distripctiox.—A rare opportunity is
offered for obtaining watches, chains, diamond rings,
silver ware, etc., by Messrs. Arrandale A Co., at No.
167 Broadway. They havo an immense stock of arti
cles, varying in value, and are offered at one dollar
path. 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 willcer
tainly be worth more than that amount, and may be
*50 or *100. An excellent mode this of Investing a
dollar.—Sunday Times, Sea York City, February lst/i,
1866.
We have Inspected, at the office of Arrandale A Co.’s
Agency for European Manufacturing Jewelers, a large
assortment of fashionable and valuable Jewelry, of ths
newest patterns. We alBO noticed a large quantity of
silver plate, and understand that the whole of these
newly Imported articles are to be disposed of on a no
vel principle, giving great advantages to buyers, and
affording extensive employment to agent*. W« know
the firm in question to be respectable and thoroughly
friends to read their advertisement.—.Veto York Albion,
Sri*. 8, 18*4.
Messrs. Arrandale A Co. have long been personally
known to us, and we believe them to he everyway
worthy of public confidence.—New York Scottish Ame
rican Journal, June 11, 1864.
We have some very pretty specimens of table and
teaspoons, gold watches, ladies’ chains, pins, bracelets,
etc , which have been sent by Arrandale A Co. to this
place for *1 each.—Angelica Reporter, Sew York State,

Ax Exousn Jewelry House Opexixo a Braxi-r ix
Cbarlkstox.-Our readers will observe from onr ad
vertising column that the English house of Arrandale
A Co., New York, have opened a branch here at 284
King street. Their plan of sale is one now become
rery popular, and seems to bring it within the means of
all to obtain fashionable jewelry. The comments of
the New York press on this establishment are very fa
vorable.
We understand that it is their Intention to remain
permanently here, and to operate throughout the South
by means of agents.
We recommend onr friends to read their advertise
ment and give them a call.—Charleston Dally Sews.
Feb. 16, 1866.
Jewelry.—The attention of onr readers is invited to
the advertisement of Arrandale A Co., which appears
in onr columns this morning. They propose to dispose
of a stock 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 the
highest terms of their reliability, as well as praising
their mode of disposing of their goods. Their place of
business. No. 234 King street, is constantly thronged
with an eager crowd, which fact of itself is pretty good
evidence that it is no hnmbng, but is, as the African
was wont to express himself in bygone days, “true and
true ling.—Charleston (S. C.)paper.
Expi.otmbxt 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 onr acquaintance has been
very snccessfnl In this war, not only In filling her own
purse, hut also in doing a good tnru to those to whom
she sold the certificates, as will be seen by our adverti
sing colnmnt. Gentlemen can also be thus engaged.—
Srw York Sunday Mercury, Aug. 14, 1863.
The British Whig, of Kingston, C. W., says, Novem
ber 26, 1864 :
“One of onr lady subscribers became an agent for Ar«
randale A Co., and by request brought some twenty ar
ticles, sent as prises for her agency, to this oBce for in
spection, and without hesitation we ean state that each
and all of the articles were worth treble the amount of
the recipients, and some of them six times.“
AGENTS.—We want Agents in every regiment, and
in every town and county in the country, and those act
ing as such will be allowed to cents on every certificate
ordered by them, provided their remittance am Hints to
one dollar; also other Inducements which can be learn
ed on application. Agents will collect 28 cents for
every certificate and remit li cents to us, either in cash
or postage stamps.
