To the amuaement-loving portion of our
community there was presented last week
a variety of theatrical amusements such as
has nevar before been brought to their no*
tice. The first was the Italian opera, and
really an excellent troupe. The audience
that greeted it was really a discredit te a
place the size of Wiltnington. The Geor
gia auastrels, which was as good minstrel
entertainment as we have ever had, was
saluted with only a fair-sized audience, and
the audience on Saturday night to witness
the society play of "Our Boys,'' was what
might be termed miserable in numbers
If the people expect the management o
the Opera House to present first-class cem
panies and plays, they must extend him
more liberal encouragement than they
have done thus far this season.
L\ the report of the Grand Jury yes
terday to the Court of General Sessions
there were many valuable suggestions
made. One, in particular, which treats of
the crowded condition of the jail, and a
remedy therefor, is especially deserving of
matnre thought. The jail is more crowded
than it has ever been before, there being
largely overdone hundred prisoners oonfined
there for various offenses. This imposes
upon the county a large expense, and en
tails with it no small amount of trouble.
The Grand Jury suggests, as a remedy for
this, that the committing magistrates deal
more summarily with eases themselves,
and take final action in eases of a trifling
character that they now commit,
is no doubt much truth in this, and the
committing magistrates would save them
selves considerable trouble,and the C'ountv
expense, it they would profit by the sug
gestion. _
In Russia, Sweden and Norway, where
prolonged and biting winters necessitate
action and large supplies ef animal beat,
meals are frequent and of great duration.
Five hearty repasts per diem,
whieh dinner is the chief one, are the com
mon allowance in those Xorthrn localities.
This principal meal is heralded by a cold
collation taken on the way to the dining
In a small ante-room the guests
pause before a small table spread with
tides creative of appetite and thirst, such
as red herrings, sardines, caviare, cheese,
sharp pickles and arrack the native whis
ky. Thus stimulated, a much larger re
past is made than would otherwise be pos
sible. W hen this custom, however, is in
troduced regardless of climatic require
ments. it is prone 'o conduce to sluggish
in ^sis parts of Germany. Again,
the glowing mother earth and ardent
"kies of Italy tarnish her children with
their best preservatives against their com
bined intensity oi heat. Fruits and salads,
succulent, refreshing, cooling, form the
national breakfast and the chief staple of
other meals, being freely partaken of with
results which might be much less favora
ble under a cooler skv.
these wondrou-i adaptations, is
glee ful of the needs of animals, a- may be
briefly instanced by a Norwegian custom.
M ithin the arctic circle, where the winters
long twilight, and the highlands so
barren that people subsist upon bread
made from the tender bark of the birch
tree, the cattle are fed upon fish caught in
those storied fiords, whose waters, the For
utnatus purse of Norway, stretch far inland
by dn=ky forests of pine.

from this and the many instances that hare
preceded it, we are made crcry day to see
and realize the grandeur of American in
stitutions and the broad, liberal and en_
nobling principle* of a Democratic society,
A society that is illumined by genius, bur
nished by intellect, and not veneered by
dollars into a mere show #f pupperr, and
proscription to those who are not farored
with wealth. Genius shines out through
{he darkest clouds that may borer oyer iU
To it there is always a silver lining. It is
invincible and always reaching for that
whicii is beyond, but vet within the intel
lectual grasp.
It is in this school lhat the brightest in
tellects which have shed lustre
American statesmanship received their first
instractions. Adversity was the harsh
trainer to the goal beyond. Ambition, the
rod that chastened, and love of knowledge
the aiedals and rewards of merit. Would
that this school was open to mor«. It is;
but its rules are too exac'.ing to well pre
serve the determinations of those who
ter. But those who are the matriculates
come forth bright
refined gold from the dross,
aud pure as
up before the world in
their own mightiness, and drift upon ike
high wave of popularity into the highest
places among their people. Although
hard they may have striven for the goal,
the reward is no less beautiful as an evi
dence of admiration from.the people,tkau it
ii noble and inspiring to the being himself.
The names are almost too numerous for
to mention, but the passing thought
calls to the mind those who have figured
most conspicuously in our'national history
withiH the past generation. We take first
C'alhenn, ofSotith Carolina. He was the
master logician of the .Senate in the days
when that body was ruled by intellectual
giants. Henry Clay was a modem Demos
thenes, and yet his early years were those
ef a mill boy, and he
career called the [mill boy of the slashes.
Then re take Horace Greeley; his youth
was throagh a thorny path, yet rce'di* sta
tion to which he rose. The tailor shop still
stands in Tennessee with the modest siga,
" A. Johnson, Tailor,'' upon its weather
beaten boards, where one of our Presidents
once sewed garments for a wealthier class
than his own. He sprung from a poverty
as abject ns any that could well be imag
ined, and attained to the highest office
within the gift of the nation. Then
conclude this class ef statesmen with ike
death of the late Vice-president Wilson.
He was sprung oat from tke people by his
•wn genius, to make a bright and useful
career, and he leaves after him
name, and one that will go down to i>os
terity in the galaxy of statesmen, as the
good fruit of that career.
From such men as those we have men
tioned, and the career of Mr. Wilson, th*
youth of to-day can find no better lessons
as incentives for study and ambition,
them belonged fewer advantages than
possessed at the present day by the boy in
more humble circumstances than even thev
had in youth. Books and other sources of
knowledge are more easy of access, means
of instruction more generally diffused, and
if the mind is there, the intellectual giants
may still be developed, and society adorned
by just saeli diamonds as those that h:

out of which they had been defrauded by

The dream impressed him so strongly
