KRIBAY JANUARY 2C, 1866. faa?e? of >aiionnl Grratiir* There is one portion of the late lecture of Mr. Bekchkr, in New York, which mar* the gi-nersl pood scn*o and practical wisdom by which u is otherwise characterized. It is that in which he follow* the common custom of ascribing the great proaprietv of this country jo its superior intelligence, without recogniz ing the immense resources which Providence ha? placed at it* disposal, and thereby flatter ing the self-love of the |?opular sovereign till the language of his heart, if not of his life, becomes that of the self-satisfied Eastern mon arch when he exclaimed, 44 Is not this great ? ? Babylon, which mine hands have builded ? " We are not blind to the remarkable energy anil shrewdness of the American people. Their enterprise in peace and their courage in war have never been surpassed. But they have Also enjoyed peculiar advantages for greatness, such ae rarely fall to the lot of nations, and with tin* creation of which they had nothing to do. Their civilization, their laws, their letters, their religion, were transplanted, full grown, from Europe, and have taken deep root in the soil. As to our material growth, the natural resources of our country have -!trely something to do with that. With such a vast and fertile territory, and such rivers and lakes, we should be ti very inferior race of hitman beings if we had failed to become rich and jtowerful. That we have devoted to their development a degree of energy and intelligence worthy such resources is a just reason for national pride and satisfaction, but not lor ignoring the Head higher than our own, which has conferred uj>on tin means of success unknown in any other country of the glols*. We are surprised that so sensible and prac tical a ]H*rson as Sir Morton Pkto, on his return to England, should coolly advise the people of that country to 44 imitate the resources of the United Slates " We dare say they would be very glad to follow the Baro net s advice, but how to go atiout it would be the question. The New York World suggests that they should manufacture a chain or two of likes like those on our northern frontier, and create three or four territories of rich land iiue Illinois ; two or three adequate and appropriate rivers, and a few hundred milesof Kocky Mountains, full of gold and silver, and locate them tit the middle of their little island. If they have not enterprise enough to ruvoinplish .that achievement, they need not ? \pert to be developed. We appreciate the amiable desire of Sir Morton to cultivate good feelings between the two countries; but, leallv, we think that, considering the small ncs? of the capital in natural resources that hi - own little island?a mere speck in the seas?had to start upon, and the immense results it has produced, Englishmen have ns much ground us Americans lor national pride ami self complacency. The Count Jonuucfc In view of the terrific out laugh t that has been made l?y the New York Herald upon the legitimatedrama, it must be matter of public congratulation that a champion litts appeared in its defence whom even the veteran of the 11,aid tnu>t admit to be a 44 foeman worthy of his steel." This is no less a personage than that chivalric knight, the " t'ount Joannes," Known outside of courtly circles by the popu lar sobriquet of " Oeuruk Joneh." The j Count informs the public that lie never criti cises any subject he is not practically ac quainted with, whether of the Constitution. the laws, history, fine arts, or the drama; and to take all responsibility which may attach to his views, always signs his name to his productions thus?4* The Count .)oa.vsj-.s." lie informs its that in the classic times of (fleece and lloine, the drama was part of the representative religion of the country, anfl, lie might have added, Judging from the flue morality of some of the performers of the present day, that it continues to occupy that sphere in our own Republic. He insists that the drama has also the high sanction of the great Apostle of the Gentiles, of whom the Count Joannes speaks i 11 a manner that must raise St. 1*ai i. highly in public estimation as a person of liberal ideas and an intelligent pit run of the fine arts. In his immortal Speech 111 the Areopagus, St. Pai'l quoted *r<uu a dramatic poet, A it aits of Cilicia, in that well-known passage, 4* As certain of your ?? own poets have said, are we not His oft ?? spring?" From the authority of St. Pavl, the Count Joannes gracefully meanders to that of Chief Justice Marshall, George Washington and William Wikt, of Vir ginia, as follows : "1 lH*c:iiiie .1 stockholder in the Richmond Theatre, Virginia, lor the public good, believ- ? i'ig, as i do, that a theatre, properly con- j ducted, is a great instrument in promoting public morality, by representing the happiness and reward for virtue, and the remorse and punishment of crime. John Marshall, 44 Chief Justice of the United States." j And history has declared the attachment to the theatre by Ihe father of his country, George Washington, who always visited the tlo-atre, and select til '4 The School for Scandal,I especially when he invited hi 9 .friends. ?41 believe the theatre, when properly carried on, is a powerful adjunct to the pulpit. ?? William Wikt, of Virginia." The practical application of the whole article U'allack'* Theatre, and tIke application in this case is the chief part of the discourse. It would be a profanation of chivalry to suppose that a free ticket, or any personal motive, has dictated this eloquent vindication of the drama. Such a perversion of the true spirit of knight-errantry might be conceivable in fiK"K >k Jones, but not in 4,The Count Jo> A N n es .'4 Humble ?Beet. On one occasion, many years ago, on the trial of a cause in one of the courts of West ern t irginirt, in which Mr. Peikpoint, the present Governor, was engaged as on? of the counsel, a young lawyer on the other side endeavored to obtain eclat for his maiden speech, as is sometimes the case with young lawyers, by a very grandiloquent display ol rhetoric and invective, in the course of which he became somewhat abusiveof his opponent, and finally set down with the air of a man who had accomplished greatness. Mr. Psia point, on rising, took no farther notice of him thau to observe that "the young gentleman " resembled a bumble-bee?bigger when he 44 "was hatched than he would ever be after 44 wards." We were not aware before that the bumble bee had this peculiarity, and took the trouble to iuquire into the creature's tricks and man ners. We find that it is even so. The buyable or bumble-bee, on its first entrance into life, emerges from a thin shell (which it entirely fills) about the slxe of a hen's egg. It is, at that ' period of its existence, about as big as a man's thumb, or as large again as when it comes to ! maturity. It crawls about In this state for some time, feeding on the honey which it obtains from the flowers, nod yon are then at liberty to take it on your band, If U has no fllifr-vblili often tb#ceee,~?#*4 enaaUs It DA ILY D IS PA T C H.

During thin period it has no wings, but soon the heat of the summer sun begins to exert Its powers , upon our friend, the bumble-bee, and, instead of expanding, as we should think natural, he dwindles and pines, and before long assumes his ordinary size and shaj>e, and /lies away to make a home for himself in an old tree or decayed light wood, where he gathers and stows away food for the future. There is no school-boy who has not, at one time or other, captured this spoiler of the flowers and shared his hard-won feast. The learned, on these subjects, must pardon tins short and common place description, as we had it not from a savant, but only a rustic observer of nature who was not so well acquainted with techni cal terms, but was death on facts. (iovernor Pkirpoixt's opponent is notalono in resembling the humble-bee. All humbugs belong to this family. The tribe is so nume rous that wo are almost inclined to think that , man rose at first by slow gradations, not from monkeys, as some learned persons have affirmed, but from humble-bees. A New Nobility. The Washington correspondent of the New York Herald relates that a committee of the New York Chamber of Commerce waited upon the President the other day, and sent in their cards, with the number of millions they were worth appended to their names; for example, F. S. Wixstox, President Mutual Insurance | Company, representing seventeen millions dollars; R. II. Bcrdell, President of the I Krie railroad, representing sixty millions; H. It. Chaplis, the largest merchant of the globe. The Herald suggests that we have new ! titles of nobility. Instead of using the prefix of "Lord" or "Sir," we might have inscribed on the cards of our new nobility, W. B. Aaron, forty millions; Jonx Joxeh, seventeen mil lions; ArursTt's A not. phi** Brow*, ten mil lions; Thbophii.cs Robixsox, twelve millions; HirRo.vTxrs Dry CJooph, the largest merchant ; tm the LOCAL MATTERS. Another Gakrotixo Cass.?On Wednesday night, at a late hour, a policeman, near the corner of Twentieth and Broad streets, ht ard the cries of a man in distress, and proceeding to the place whence the cries came, found a man lying senseless upon thepavement. After some 'effort he was aroused, when he stated that he had been " muz/led" by gurroters and knocked down. The policeman left for a moment to procure assistance, and in the mean time the man got up and went away. On the spot where he laid two handkerchiefs were found, one marked with the name of William Lewis. Two reporters, passing the corner of Twentieth and Broad the same night, picked up a woolen glove, which is supposed to have belonged to thegarroted party. Tub Clotiiixo Robbery. ? John Shay, a youth of doubtful reputation, was before the Mayor yesterday to answer tlie charge of breaking into the store of A. Polack, on Broad street, on Sunday last, and stealing n quantity of clothing. It will be remembered that, on tlio previous day, Tom Dobson and Pat Cun ningham were examined and sent on to the Hustings Court upon this charge. We under stand that the evidence against Shay consists in the fact that he was seen in company with Dobson and Cunningham on Sunday. The case was continued, and the accused commit ted, in default of bail. Disorderly House.?The proprietors of the Star saloon, situated opposite the old United States Hotel, ajijieared yesterday beforo the Mayor to answer a charge of keeping a disor derly house. Policeman Loyal stated that the only instance of disorder he whs aware of was on the occasion of the demonstration in which Kate Cushman, the " Hosting Gal," of Locust alley, and an oflk-cr of the United States army, were concerned, and that the proprietors then made every effort to quell the disturbance. Thereupon the Mayor dismissed the case. A Nboro Sent to the Pknite.nhart.?On esterday, John Turner, a brother of the negro ramus Turner, sent a few days since to the >euitentiary for stealingrbrass car-boxes from ho Richmond and Danville railroad, was trough t before Judge McEntee, charged with wing an accomplice in the theft, and, being ound guilty, was sentenced to join his brother or twelve months in the ''white house" on wnitentiary hill. Arrest on a Charue or Burolary.?A negro, named William Coutes, was arrested on Wednesday night, charged with breaking into the store of Weisiger & Thompson, on Seventh street, and stealing a considerable amount of groceries. He was committed for trial. Tempekanck.?We are glad to receive the j most gratifying accounts of the success of the several Divisions of Sons of Temperance in 1 this city. Their work, seriously interrupted i by the war, has been recently recommenced, j .iiitl already a complete organization of the 1 arder has been effected, and not a week passes but dozens of men are redeemed from tl:e error of their ways through its potent influ nice. The two Divisions which meet on Church Hill (Springfield and Hutcheson) are j in a highly prosperous condition, while the Shockoe Hill Divisou is equal to either of its sisters in pushing on the good work. The gentlemen connected with the Order in Rich mond are among our best citizens?hard working, industrious and intelligent men? tnd under their fostering care there is no reason to doubt that the temperance move ment will result in a great moral reform in this community. The fact that bar-rooms have sprung up, since the evacuation, like mushrooms, in every path, is an additional incentive to the temperance men to use in creased exertions. Guvernmb.vt Sale.?There was a Govern ment sale commenced, on yesterday, at the Government lot, at liocketts. of mules. The stock appearing in had condition, there was only seven or eight sold, at prices ranging from twenty-three to twenty-flve and twenty-eight dollars. The Government limit being twenty five dollars, the sale was discontinued. Seve ral wagons were also sold at fifty-seven and sixty dollars. A lot of horse-shoes, chains, and other scrap iron sold for four hundred and sixty dollars?good price for the amount of iron sold. Juiwb Lyons'* CorRT.?Nothing but civil ses were before this Court yesterdav. Liti* ition between landlord and tenant, in which >unsel are employed at fees quite sufficient r their compensation, was the staple com odity of the cases yesterday. We recollect i old song about the law, one part of which n thus: " If you're fond of pure vexation And long procrastination, You're Just in the situation To enjoy a suit at law." Lt is strange how some people seek that dress at the hands of the law which they Ight easily get by a little " reasoning with one lother," and with no expense. But the orld is thus created, and wesupj?ose we must y?so mote it be. Pbovoit Court?Brb vet-Colon el McEntee iesidikol?'The following cases were disposed in this Court on yesterday : Dick Henry, an unfortunate and indiscriml its oleaginous negro boy, was charged with ealing three pounds of butter from John ' Limmlngs. The evidence showing that a tie difficulty had previously occurred tween plaintiff i\nd defendant, the little gger way suffered to slide from the hands of e law, and will probably remain clear uutil > gets taken up again. A negro, named Jackson, and another, rais Lmed George White, were arraigned upon a targe of going into each other in the style of a most modern prize-fighters. This was no >ubt the truth ; but George testified that he idn'tbeen "doin* nuffln', " and that Jack tackled him widont cause." He had a " tear his coat" to show "de extent obdebe&ttu." ickson was fined fifteen dollars, five of which ere devoted to the purposes of the Court and n to repairing the damages to White's coat. The case of Pat. Lee, charged with stabbing serge Brown, negro, cam* hp again, and was pain mttantd, New Richmond Theatre.?" William Tell" and ?' Taming of the Shrew" are advertised as the plays for to-night. Plny-goersof Richmond can now enjoy what they have been deprived of for a long time?the performances of a good dramatic company. Among the names of the members of this company we notice that of Mr. F. C. Bangs, who, we learn, will appear this evening. Mr. Bangs is a flrst-clnss actor, and many of onr readers will recollect that upon his first appearance in Washington he was hissed for the fact that he had served in the Confederate army. He served in front of Richmond during a great portion of the war as a non-commissioned officer, and as soon as the war ended, returned to his profession, where we wish him all success. Bulwer's " Lady of Lyons" was rendered with much taste last night to a good audience. Mr. Roberts filled the rolr. of "Claude Mel notte" with his usual grace, and the character of the beautiful and impassioned " Pauline" was admirably sustained by Miss Carson. " Old Bailey"promises still to be a favorite in Richmond. MisS Phillips made a very good "Madame Deschappelles." Messrs. Reilley and Barth carry their parts well. Mr. Duri vnge personated " Hickory," in the "Spectre Bridegroom," admirably, and elicited peals of laughter. Go to spe Bangs to-night by all means. That he is a first-class actor will be attested by his comrades, who have whiled away many an hour in camp listening to him repeat. Ordinance Violations.?The usual number of castas involving violations of ordinances were brought to the notice of the Mayor yes terday, and a considerable accession to the amount of funds in the city treasury was the result. The police have their " eyes and ears open" to all cases of this sort, and any one j who disregards the law as laid down by the City Council may depend upon being hauled , up. Captain John Poe has displayed, in the | lower part of the city, an amount of sagacity j scarcely to be equalled. Still we think some j of theordinances of the city might be slightly modified, without injury to the public good. Wf.aki.vu But's Clothes.?On Wednesday night, Policeman Sweeney, hearing the sound of a voice which he took to be that of a small boy's, as if in distress, went to the spot from whence it proceeded, and there found what at first seemed to be a boy, but who, on being taken to the station-house, proved to bo a woman! Ample apologies having been made, and the Chief of Police having been satisfied that no crime was intended, the woman was dis charged. The Strevoth op a "Mrp.L" Tested.?On yesterday, as an iron safe was being removed from Lancaster & Co.'s, on Main street, to a dray, it fell upon a mule, and interrupted operations seriously. The mule, however, was not much injured ; merely crushed down to the earth, from whence he " rose again," fresh as a " new-blown rose." Charob op Embezzlement.?Martin Casey appeared before the Mayor yesterday upon the chargo of taking and selling a lot of bread, the property of C. H. Page, and appropriating the money to his own use. At the request of Colonel August, the case was continued until 1 to-day, and Casey was admitted to bail for his } appearance. Hop at the Ballard IIorsB.?On Wednes- | day night, the United States officers stationed in this city gave a hop at the Ballard House, which was well attended. The officers appeared in full uniform, and the scene was very brilliant. The " exercises " closed about 3 A. M. Perboval.?General S. L. Brown, of the United States Army, and Honorable W. II. Brown (M. C.), from Chicago, 111., arrived at the Ballard House yesterday. MARINE INTELLIGENCE. MINIA T U R K ALMA X A C-J A > u A RY 26, 18*f.
