The assemblage, too, was as brilliant am fashionable as it was large. Our leading citizens, beautiful belles, and chivalric beaux tilled to repletion orchestra and dress circle. " Der Frcischiitz" has long since been adjudged by the critics of the mtisica world as Weber's master-piece. The music is extremely intricate, and none but first class artists can attempt its rendition. Un- Hkc Trovatore, Martha and Stradella, it re quires so thorough a musical training to apprehend and appreciate its beauties, that in a great degree it is removed from th popular affections. " Der Freischiitz," apart from its grand music,islargely depen dant for a successful performance on scenic effect. Of this great auxiliary in producing it we were deprived last night. It ran no be expected that an itinerant opera com pany can put it on a stage for a single night with due regard for spectacular effects. 'Ihe Formes-Habelmann combination ha I. there fore, only to avail themselves of su _h facil ities as our theatre supplied. These were meagre, indeed, so meagre as to make the grand incantation scene a failure. When this scene is put on in all its grandeur, it ia one of infinite spectacular magnificence, and also of thrilling horror. Madam Rosetti made her third appear ance a3 Agatha. While she actea very finely, the part does not give full scope to her great dramatic powers. It is in char acters like Leonora, Magaruitte, or Lucretia Borgia, that she can illustrate her dramatic genius. Madam Rosetti's singing last night was delightful, and her voice came out in all its power, pathos and melody. M'lle Dziuba again captivated her audi ence with her charming acting and singing. This lady may be pronounced one of Rich mond's greatest favorites. Mr. Weinlich had his first ample op portunity to show his great voice, I and histrionic talents. His Casper was j equal to any we have ever seen. In it he ! discovers that genius which has made j him so distinguished an artist. The great characteristic of Weinlich, in both singing ! and acting, is intensity, earnest, fervia, j most expressive passion. Hablemann, as Max, sang with exquisite j melody. His voice was in better condition than it has been on any night since Faust. The more we see of this gentleman, the more are we impressed that his voice is better now than it has ever been ; it has more power, more strength, and is" more I velvety. In addition, too, he now sings more in the Italian than German school. William Formes and Carl Beaunard had j but little to do, being cast in subordinate ! The chorus last night was very tine, the | German society of this city aiding the com pany. It received a cordial encore. To-night the opera of " The Merry Wives of Windsor" will be presented for j the first time in this city. Carl Formes appears as Falstaff. His reputation in it, as a piece of great acting, is known to Rry capital in the Old World. lonky, not Principle.—Hon. Mr. I I-vans, of Petersburg, yesterday introduced i into the House, a resolution asking that body to invite colored ministers, as well as white ones, to open its meetings with prayer. The resolution was laid upon the table ; the Democrats opposing it and the Republicans favoring it. We were sur prised aud mortified to find this partisan spirit so early exhibiting itself. We would like for these Democratic gentlemen to ex plain the difference between sitting in tho same body with a colored man or listening 'to one of them pray ; and for fear we may not be accommodated, we propose giving our views of the difference. To listen to a colored man's prayers would not increase the amount of money they receive, but to sit in council with one, brings in six dollars a day. Thus the an swer is given, if there is any money in a disagreeable arrangement it is all right ; ifl there's no money it all wrong. Out upon such hypocricy and its defend- j ers, who for political purposes will elect in Hall to hold an office in this body, j ami yet bo unwilling to see a colored mm- I ; ister officiate in prayer. Mr. Lackland's Resolution.—On I yesterday, in the Senate, Hon. \Vm.

Hunt debts." Mr. Lacland represents a constituency, j not only embarrassed, but who are actual ; ly in distress, from old debts hanging over l ] them and their properties; and while we arc disnosod to make no comments upon the subject, we are sufficiently intimate with the people of the Valley and south- I I west, to know their anxiety upon the sub- | They have demanded of their repiesenta j tives such a course as wiH brini; them re j lief, or, as will finally settle the question. j Mr. I_ackland is but representing tne wish | es of his constituency in thus early agita ting this important question, and we nave no doubt he will be aided by the several ! members from his section of the State.
