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
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

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

A N n es .'4
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
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

at your leisure ; you must be careful, howeve\
for if it can it will certainly sting you. 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;

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
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
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
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
" 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
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
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
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 }
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
