CAPITOL NOTES.
The Conservative legislative caucus held
at the Capitol Thursday evening, to nomi
nate candidates for sundry vacant judge
, ships, was more than ordinarily distin
guished by lively episodes—one of them at
least of a striking nature. During the
pending of a discussion on the merits of
one of the candidates n member of the
Senate charged him with being a daily ab
sorbent of alcoholic liquor, drawing the
inference that the party in question could
not possibly make a good judge. A
member of tho House, a friend of tho im
plicated party, hereupon arose and mildly
suggested that he hoped the Sena
tor did not make such charges on his
own authority, as there was not a word of
truth in them. Thereupon the Senator arose
and .said that if tho party of the second
part meant to charge or insinuate lhat he,
the p .rty of the first part, was an econo
mist of truth in this or any other matter,
then he the party of the second part was
. Here the party of the first part used
a forcible denunciatory adjective, with a
qualifying expletive of a decidedly heavy
cast of countenance. This vocal salvo was
accompanied by the immediate assumption
of a pugilistic attitude, with extended
mauleys and digits well closed for offence
or defence. Simultaneously the other
party made a break for the objec
tive point, an, was making good time to>
wards it, when he was seized by several
friends and held tight. Another member
objecting lo this summary stopping of the
muss, and being in favor of business gen
erally, stepped up to "theoriginal Jacobs''
and administered a s° ckdo'.lager on his
own account. This side issue was soon
stopped by the active interposition of
friends. The last demonstrator being af
terwards expostulated with for mixing
himself up in a muss with which he had
nothing to do, accounted for it, by saying
ho was bound to hit anyhow, he was
such a fool. Whereupon his interlocutor
remarked with sententious brevity that the
muss would be an extensive one if he felt
called on to hit every fool. The matter
was settled to day by mutual explana
tion.
The Lexington Gazette claims that the
defeat of the Valley Railroad extension
scheme before tho Legislature was due to
" the Eastern cities so-called, the Eastern
Virginia railroads, and General Imboden's
wild-cat road. Wild cat is good. The
observation is made on the narrow-gauge
principle.
Three commissioners were appointed on
the part of Virginia at the last meeting of
the General Assembly to meet a similar
number from West Virginia, for the pur
pose of adjusting and marking more accu
rately the boundary line between the two
states. The representatives of Virginia
have been as yet unable to do anything in
consequence of the West Virginia LeEisla- '
ture postponing action till its next ses
sion in January 1875, This postponement J
by West Virginia was not from any ad
verse disposition towards the measure, but
simply for want of more accurate inform.
tion upon the necessity of it. That having
now been supplied, doubtless favorable
action will follow.
When the effort was made in tho House
a few days ago by Mr. Magruder to get
that body to donate an additional bonus
to certain clerlss employed in the office of
the superintendent of public instruction,
his chief argument in f.vor thereof was
that they were not now paid as much as
other clerks in the Capitol. He was sup
ported by Messrs. Lingley and Round.
General Bagwell said if tliey could not live
on their present salaries they could resign,
and hundreds of entirely competent young
men could be found who would be more
than willing to serve for even less. Mr.
Armstrong suggested that the better way
to equalize salaries would be to reduce
those of other clerks at the Capitol. It is
already known that the Legislature did not
increase the salaries spoken of.

MENTAL CONDITION OF THE
ACCUSED.
BAILED IN SUM OF $10,000.
Judge Guigon, of the Hustings Court,
yesterday issued the following bench war
rant which was placed in the hands of the
city sergeant, ordering him to take the
body ol Colonel Joseph Mayo, Jr., treas
urer of Virginia, and bring him before
Police Justice J. J. White, on the charge
of being a defaulter:
State of Virginia, City of Richmond, to-wit:
To the Sergeant of the City of Richmond
— Greeting: Whereas, it appears iv evi
dence before me, A. B. Guigon, judge of the
Hustings Court of theCitty of Richmortd,
upon the trial of W. D. Coleman, for fel
ony, that Josaph Mayo, Jr., treasurer of tho
commonwealth of Virginia, did on the 21st
day of December, 1873, feloniously em- j
li.zzle and fradulently convert to his own
use the sum of three thousand dollars of
the money and property of the common
wealth of Virginia; these are, therefore,
in the name of the commonwealth of Vir- f
ginia, to authorize and require you to forth- i
with apprehend and arrest the said Joseph <
Mayo, Jr., and take him before the Police I
Justice of the said city to answer the said <
complaint, and to be further dealt with ac- I
cording to law, I
A. B. Guigon, Judge <
of Hustings Court, city of Richmond. ■
General Moore, after receiving the order, '
proceeded at once in search of Colonel '
Mayo, in various parts of the city, but
without the desired result. This morning,
however, General Mooro being ot the deoot
of the Richmond, Fredericksburg and i
Potomac Railroad, upon tho arrival of the I
early train, observed Colonel Mayo step to
the platform, and immediately took him :
into custody, and conveyed him to the
Second police station. Dr. M. J. Griffith, '
a connection of Colonel Mayo, and who j
had gone to Baltimoro in quest of him, i
returned to the city by the same train, but '
was not aware of his presoncc until he saw '
hint in the custody of tho sergeant. At ,
ten o'clock Colonel Mayo was removed to t
the jail in custody ot Deputy Sergeant '
Holziiiger, upon tho following mittimus J
issued by Police Justice White i
State of Virginia, City of Richmond, to wit: '
To the Jailor of the City of ltiefanond —
Whereas, Jos. Mayo, Jr., having been ar
rested oti a bench warrant issued by the
honorable judge of tho Hustings Court ,
of the city of Richmond, on a charge .
of felony, and brought oefore me for
examination; these are, therefore, in the j
name of the commonwealth of Virginia, to
command you the sajd jailor, to receive the
said Joseph Mayo, Jr., into the jail !
of said city, and there hold him until ,
Monday next, the 30th day of March, 1874, j
on which day he shall be brought before ,
me for examination.
< Jiven under mv hand and seal, this 28th
day of March, 1874. !
J. J. White, P. J.
Colonel Mayo was found to be in a high ,
state of mental excitement, and no intel- j
ligent account could be obtained from him ',
as to bis recent whereabouts.
Shortly after arrival at the jail, a consul- I
tation was held by several of his friends and j
and one or two physicians, and upon a rep- ,
resentation made by them to Justice ,
White of the prisoner's mental and physi- f
"al condition, he promptly changed the ,
return nf the mittimu to half-past ,
one o'clock to-day. Colonel Mayo ,
was immediately removed to the .
private office of Justice White in the t
fiolice court-rooms, and placed upon a c
ounge. Drs. Beale and 'i'abb soon after- c
wards arrived, and under their direction
ihe patient was leeched by Mr. Hobson, J
and proper restoratives administered. ,
At the hour designated, Justice White |
appeared, and upon taking his seat notified ,
the counsel that he was ready to hear any 8
motion they might desire to make. Messrs. .
W. W. Crump, W. W. Gordon and R. Leigh \
Page appeared as counsel for the accused, j
and the following testimony was elicited t
upon a motion for bail: t
Dr. Beale testified that he visited the |
accused at the statiou-houso at 10 o'clock ,
this morning, and found him laboring |
under severe mental aberration ; had bci n i
him a few moments siuco, and he was in a
much worse condition than when he first ,
saw him ; he was now undoubtedly suf- [
fering from congestion of the brain, aud J
his confinement in jail would unquestion- j
ably either result in death or hopeless in- ,
sanity. .
Judge Crump—We do not think it ne- s
cessary to oiler further testimony in sup- !
port ol our motion. ,
Justice White—As other witnesses have (
been summoned, I would prefer to hear
further evidence.
General Pickett was then called, and
stated that he was intimately acquainted i
with the accused ; had noticed the state of
his mind for some time past; on two or i
three occasions within the last two or
three weeks had observed that he was not, i
as he thought, in his proper mind, and
mentioned my convictions to several of my
friends.
Colonel R. E. Withers testified that he i
had known Colonel Mayo long and intimate- <
ly ; had observed on the last two or three
occasions that he had met him that he was
not, as he believed, in sound mind ; I think i
he is now unmistakably insane, and that
his confinement in a jail would result
fatally.
R. Leigh Page stated that he was well
acquainted with Colonel Mayo, and had
observed his manner as being that of a
person of unsound mind, for at least two
months past; had been so impressed with
the apparent mental condition of the
accused that when he, the witness, was
1 upon the point of leaving the city at one
' time, and casually meeting tho Colonel, he
' hud remained at home in order to com
municate the fact to his friends, and to
advise immediate steps for his being placed
under medical treatment; have seen him
■ several times since, and have only been
j confirmed in my first impression.
Judge Crump said they could offer ad-
ditional testimony if desired, but he thought
that_ufficicnt had been adduced to show
that in his present condition it was impos
sible for the accused to appear before his
~ honor. He would therefore make a formal
a motion that he be admitted to bail in such
manner as may subserve the ends of jus
tice and of humanity.
Tho commonwealth attorney, Mr. Wise,
upon being asked by the Court if he dc
• sirnd to say anything, stated that ho had
no objections to offer to ihe motion. Ho
had long been satisfied of the unsettled
- condition of Colonel.Mayo's mind, but
that he had not mentioned tho subject
other than privately, for the reason that un
der the circumstances, his motives might
have been misconstrued. Ho had no
knowledge of the intended arrest until it was
made, and had he been informed of it,
would have endeavored to prevent it, ou
1 the ground of tho mental condition of tho
accused. He made this statement in jus
tice to himself, as well as to Colonel Mayo.
At the conclusion of Mr. Wise's re
marks, Justice White notified the counsel
that he would admit the prisoner to bail
in tho sum of ten thousand dollars, to
appear before him on Wednesday, the
15th day of April next, whereupon
Messrs. John B. Davis, W. W. Crnmp,
R. 11. Maury and __, Leigh Page became
his sureties.
Shortly after the adjournment of the
court Colonel Mayo was removed to his
residence.
The following is the correspondence al
luded to by us yesterday in connection
with the suspension of Colonel Mayo from
office :
Treasurer's Office, \
Richmond, March .27, 1871. J

Mr. Sothern.—This artist rendered |
last night the part of David Garrick. ,
It is one in which he has won the highest j
distinction, having performed it for about ,
three hundred consecutive nights in Lon- |
don, and last Winter for one hundred and" j
nine nights in New York at Wallack's j
Theatre. In his rendition lost night Mr. j
Sothern was warmly greeted by the most j
brilliant and cultivated audience we ,
have ever seen in the Richmond
Theatre. As his beautiful presentment
progressed he was encored most gene- -
rously, and when he made his exit at tho t
end of the second act, the Theatre rang (
with enthusiastic applause. Mr. Sothern (
is indeed a great actor, aud over all his f
conceptions he diffused Ibet imperious c
power which is derived only by gf-nius. t
To us nothing is so remarkable in his per- r
formance of David Garrick as the marked (
antithesis it presents to Sam and Dundrsa- {
ry. The transition which ho makes c
from Dundreary to Garrick is as t
wonderful as histrionic nnnals c
record. These roles aro as widely di- j
vergent as it is possible for parts to be, and
yet he passed from one to the other with
such facile grace and completeness as to I
defy the recognition of the actor. Mr. <■
Sothern in "tiarrick," presents a series of r
pictures that are as exquisite in coloring •
as Bierdstadt's touches, and as vigorous as 1
the powerful portrayal of Rubens. In the
first act, his acting is so quiet, so smooth in
its careful study that you almost doubt the
abilities of the artist; but in the second he c
comes to us with a sweep of true genius '
that captivates and holds an audience spell- c
bound. In the third act he again assumes
a subdued portrayal, and delights us with j
delicate shades and tints that are in the .
highest degree artistic and pleasing. Rich- r
mond will always welcome Mr. Sothern to y
her heart, and it will beat the quicker to
know that he is coming.
Miss Minne Walton gavo a delightful
personation of Ada Ingot. Such is her
personal beauty that she seems to have been
expressly designed for a role of such love
liness. In her fainting scene she presented
a picture of winning beauty and capti- '
vated all the men in her audience. Her *
style of acting is quiet, smooth and facile,
yet positive and impressive. It is rare I
that a woman ot such beauty is seen on or (
off the stage. To-night "David Garrick"
is repeated. i

Mrs. Sarah F. Ames—Some years,
ago Grace Greenwood, writing from Wash
ington to the New York Tribune, gave
this sketch of her Iriend, Mrs. Ames ;
"During mv early acquaintance with Mr.
Wendell Phillips, I remember to have
heard hitn mention moro than once, with
admiration and candid interest, a beautiful
and brilliant woman, the wifo of a distin
guished artist, and herself gifted with a
decided <alent for art. When a school
girl in I'oston this friend of his sat for a
portrait to tho painter Alexander at the
same time that Charles Dickens was sitting
for that admirable live portrait, which I
would give much to ste again, and which
I think should be engraved. The two sit- i
ters met one day in tho studio—she in the ,
dawn of her remarkable beauty, he in the
full morning of his great fame—and talked
gaily of being next door neighbors on can
vass and fellow-captives of Alexander. I
witnessed their next meeting. It was
more than a quarter of a century later;
yet they could still talk gaily unappallcd
by the gap of years, for they were philoso- '
pliers—they two. When Mr. Phillips told !
me of this friend I had not seen her, but
years after I met her in Washington. From
our old friend, Count Gurouski, who, after
pronouncing his critical judgment, com
paring her to the Venus of Milo, used to
remark in his overwhelming high-bred c
way, his own eye, transfixing you the $
while: 'I don't think you would adtniro
her. She is too strong, and healthy, and
dark, and foreign looking to please your
taste. You stupid Americans don't know
a handsome woman when you see her.'
I again heard of this artist's wife in Rome,
where she had preceded me, her husband i
having been commissioned by the city of
Baltimore to paint the Tope. Many art
ists had sketched, and all artists remem
bered well her fino Greek Niobe like head, t
I heard of her there as the devoted friend c
and companion of Margaret Fuller." f

The court thereupon passed sentence upon f

London, March 28.—The annual race be
tween the Oxford and Cambridge boa' crews
came off this morning on the usual course
on the Thames from Putney to Mortlake—
distance four miles and two furlongs—and,
as has been the case in tho past four years,
resulted in a victory for tho Cambridge
boat, which came iv two lengths ahead of
its rival. The weather was beautiful, and
a more propitious day for the contest could
not have been selected. The crowd that,
assembled to witness the race was unpre
cedented. On the sunny side of the river
from Putney to "Mortlake there
was one compact mass of people 150
feet wide, ond at the latter place carriages
five deep stood in long rows. The Prin
cess of Wales and Duchess of Edinburgh,
who wero expected to be among tho spec
tators, were absent. Upon tho tOBS for
choico of positions Cambridge won and
selected the Middlesex or northern side.
The Oxford crew rowed into the stream at
one minute past 11 o'clock. Five minutes
later the Cambridge boat appeard and was
received with immense cheering by
its friends. The betting at this
time was five to two in
favor of Cambridge. All things being in
readiness, at fourteen minutes past 11
o'clock the signal to start was given, and
the boats got away instantaneously. Cam
bridge had the advantage from the first,
rowing at the rate of thirty-seven strokes
per minute, but both ere tvs pulled steadily.
After an exciting contest Cambridgo
reached the slip at Mortlajce at thirty
seven minutes and thirty-five seconds past
11 o'clock, winning the race in twenty
three minutes and thirty-five seconds.
Tbe water, though uot so smooth as would
have been desired, was fairly calm.
