Pl.AUSABLE Thief.?Yesterday morning a stranger, oarryiog a new satchel and a white handled umbrella, with an over-coat?lined oo one side with India rubber, and on the other with oioth?over his arm, entered the Mansion House and asked if any letters were there for Bradley Johuson, jr. Beiog informed by the clerk that there were no letters for such a per son, he left his baggage, stating that he would oocue back in a 9hort time. lie then went to the boarding houses of Mrs. Wilkins, corner of Washington street, and Mrs. Bitzer's, near the corner of Prince and Fairfax street, at both of wh ch he engaged rooms, representing himself as a soo of the lat? |VV m. C. Iiives. He never returned to Mrs Wilkius', but went back to the Mansion Hou*e, wok his baggage and car ried it to Mrs. Bitzer's, where he took dinner and supper, but shortly after the latter meal, disappeared, oarryiog his baggage with him, and has nevor been seen since. Soon after he left it was discovered that he had forced open the door between the room he occupied and that occupied by Mr. Ad. Warlield and wife, ransacked all the drawers in that room* aud stolen and carried off the only really valuable article he had been able to find, a handsome gold-lined silver spoon and case. He is a weil spoken and plausibie man, knows something about most of the prominent people of the State, and talked as though on familiar terms with some of the best knuwo city people. He is about thirty-five years of age, is five feet ten inches high, wears a moustache and goatee,and is of a rather dark complexion.

For tha twelve months ending 30th of that month, the imports received here amounted to $8,860. Daring the month of May, 1875, 2 American sailing vessels engaged in the foreign trade, of 577 tons, and crews numbering 13 entered at this port. Dur ing the same month 11 steamers engaged in the c (astwise trade of 5,640 tons and crews of 170, and 6 sailiog vessels of 867 tons, and crews numbering 30 entered this port, and the same ?umber of steamers, and four sailiog vessels c>ared.

For the month of July, 1875, the value of imports was $6,089.

THE MONTP.ELIKliFEMALE HUMANE ASSOCIATION. - ?? j The first mention of lotteries m history is of" one organized in the year 1630, aud their estab lishment as aD institution dates back as far as 1693. Since then they have gradually grown iu public tavor in proportion as the objuots they were ioteuded to promote have received the public approbation and the individuals who controlled their destines have possessed the public confidence. The object ol the Montpe1 lier Associatiou in organizing a lottery?to pro vide a home for the aged and indigent ladies of Virginia at iMontpelier, a beautiful estate in Orange county, one : the residence of President James Madison?so commendable in ittolf, ap peals to the best and oobjest instiucts of human nature, and superadded to this the high char acter and standing of those in charge of the enterprise is calculated to iuspire the utmost confidence in tho .fairness and impartiality of its management. (Junipared w.th other lotte ries the Montpelicr has been thus far a most decided success, aud the announcement ol' its President, the Hon. James Barbour, that lorty thousand tickets had been sold, which were sufficient to cover at least one l*alf of the amount of prizes'intendod to be awarded, viz: $500,000?was received with every evidence of satisfaction by those who bad courted dame fortune's favors to the extent of various invest ments, ranging from au eighth ticket upwards, in this city especially the interest in the lot tery, which ;has lain dormant for some time, although many had invested sub rosa in 'Mucky numbers," has for the past few days been greatly increased, and tickets were sold at the offices of the association up to a late hour last night, and to day were eagerly demanded long after their sale had been inhibited to close up the estimates and arrange the affairs of the as sociation. Alter three postponements the graud drawing began at Sarepta Hall to day at 11 o'clock in the presence of a large crowd of in terested spectators, attracted by' the music of the Marine Band, by the uovoty of such a big Bouanza as a live lottery and the prospects of receiving the $50,000 capital prize. To many it was rosy expectations fiery hour, when hopefc beat high and couuteoauces beamed with all the pleasure of pursuit that anticipates posses sion, but alas! shadows we are and shadows we pursue, and up to the time of this writing, al though prizes raugiug from $50 to $10,000 had been posted up to the credit of those holding the right numbers,the $50,000 was yet coquet ting with the anxieties of those who worship ped at its shrine. To the comurehensious of those who were on the anxious bench within the magic wheel was a uew El Dorado that would tempt the temerity of Kaloigh and the perseverance ol' Pizarro to brave the dangers of perilous seas. B- lore the hour of drawing ar rived the hall was filled with au anxious gather ing more or less interested in the result. Tot tering age,buoyant yi.-u-h,the charms ol beauty, judges and statesmen, scanued with e^gor eyes the transparent wheels as their revolutions por teuded a possible future,fo. tuue and ease. Some possessed whole tickets, others halves,quarters, and eighths, and not a few had engaged in a kind of partnership within the lottery, and formed clubs by means of whieh they acquired interests in the fate of many different tickets, and participated in their profits and losses. The Association throughout has been under the directorship of the Board of Trustees,com posed of the following gentlemen : Judge Wm. G. Williams, Alexander Daly and J. D,Brown ing, of Orange county ; C. F. Smith, of Nelson county; Thomas G. I'uphaiu, Wm. S. Wood and Franklin Miller, of Itappahannoek county, and E. P. Aestrop, of Washington, D. C. The arrangements for the drawing were per fected by placing one immense glass, wheel con taining forty thousand tickets, each rolled up and incased in a small brass tube, 22,17S of which-represcnted prizes, on one side of the stage, and a smaller glass wheel containing the prizps similarly arranged on the other. The draw ing of the prizos was cjnducted under the su pervision of Commissioners Lieutenant Gover nor Henry W. Thomas, and Judge James Sangster, of Fairfax, Col. M. 1). Ball and R. W. Falls, ch|., ot this city, and Lew. Washing ton, etq., ol Washington, D. C. The Marine Band, ol Washington, supplied the music for the occasion, and after several of its most in spiring renditions the Hon. James Batbour, President of the Association, on behalf of him self aod the Board of Trustees, delivered the following address, which was received with applause : I am instructed by the Board of Directors of the Montpeher Female Humane Association to make to you a brief statement beforo the draw ing corr.monces. I am 3ure you will indulge mo in a few remarks of my own. "? ; Such enterprises as this are to bo applauded or censured just as wo approve or condemn the purpose proposed, and recognizo integrity or infidelity in the manner in which it is pursued. From Mr. Jefferson down to the men of this hour some among the most highly respected of our men of character and distinction have-given active support and| co operation to enterprises like this. Of those which have recently at tracted public attention and had the counte nance and control of some of the moat distin guished men in the Union, none h*ive had a purpose so praiseworthy as this'nor a body of managers (excluding mysolf),more rospectablo ,or more respected.' The Mercantile Library Association of San Francisco, in the State of California, was, ap proved, when, by this means, it appropriated some hundreds of thousands of dollars to the es tablishment of a magnificent library. So it was with the Louisville enterprise?the chief execu tivecontrol of which was intrusted to Governor Bramlette. A ^magnificent library was tho praiseworthy object of that enterprise. The as sociation at Norfolk, in our own Slate, had the co-operation of many of our best citizens', and was controlled by gontlemen very generally and very highly esteemed. 1 might weary you with similar rolerences. Tho o:j..-ct sought to bo promoted by these associations mot the public approval, and' their management was honest and faithful. The enterprise has a higher and inobler pur pose than any that has been proposed by those; to whom so much of the popular ooiidence and support has been given. A grout war devastated this noble Commonwealth. Such general dis tress has rarely afflicted a people as has been' brought upon Virginia within the last fifteen years. The Virgiuian women, in the long, flow agonies that followed in the path ol the 'great strife, have endured more even than the Vir ginian men. For the men thero are still left open some of the ways [jr useful industry and successful enterprise. JBut where can many of our distressed ladies find a field for useful labor and romunerativo employment. If 1 were skilled in the phrase of eulogy I might truth fully employ it all on the hien traits of charac ter that have been displayed by the women of Virginia. Yet can we only pity their distress while we praise their merits The founders'of this charity give a manly response, and propose the first comprehensive hction for the roiief.ef our distressed women. They seek: to establish for them a home at M.ontpolier, and to; provide on that beautiful Piedmont estate some of the comforts of a home for those interesting victims' of unavoidable distress. Others may- present: more magnificent objects of enterprise. Nono> can offer one that so touches the sensibilities of; good men or so appeals to the generous senti ments which are cultivated by-a manly chivalry.! Such is our object. Lf the means which wo employ are applauded when used to collect libraries, construct buildings, and adorn parks for leisure, recreation, or mental improvement, who 6hall criticise them when applied to the noble enterprise in which the Virginian farmers who inaugurated this association have embark ed? Those gentlemen of the Piedmont counties who originated ihisenterproe knew the Mont pelier estate before they arranged to purchase it for this work. To those who have visited .Mont pelier, the former residence of President Mad ison, it werfe idle to describe it To those who have not been so'fertunate I cannot sketch it justly. Thie farm contains eleven hundred acres of fine land, comparing favorably with any farm of equal size in the Slate. Four .hundred acres are in original growth, chiefly of oak, hickory And chestnut. Its beautiful garden and fine orchard atford llowere and fruit..^The fiue water and pure atmosphere of that'Ticdmont residence combine to make it (as is all that sur rounding country) one of the moat healthful locations in the world. I certainly know no place so lit for the purpose proposed by this as sociation as Montpelier vVe shall honor the memory of its former illustrious proprietor if we succeed in the effort to appropriate Montpelier to the noble charity proposed by this association. The delay in inaugurating our work by this first drawing has annoyed the managers quite as much as it can have vexed any one of tho ticketholders. We have employed our best en ergies, and have now a measure of success that is ealcu ated to encourage all who. feel an inter est in the accomplishment ol our purposes. ^ The single fact that we employ in the different States of the Union more than five hundred agents will indicate the magnitude, difficulty, and expense of the business which we conduct. None of the managers were exports in this business, and in their anxiety that it should bo conducted with prudence and integrity they weie cautious and slow in calling to their aid those who had experience. From the report made to the directors by the secretary (which we'will direct to be read to you) it appears that 40.00J tickets have been sold. Corresponding numbers are now in that wheel. The drawing will be conducted under the supervision u*. Lieut. Gov. Henry W. Thoinas, judge James S^ngsLer, Col. M. D. Ball, Col. Lew. Washing ton, and Col. K. W. Falls. More than fifty per cent, of the tickets remain unsold, and have been destroyed. A rateable reduction ought, of course, to be made in the payment of the prizes advortised. But fifty per cent, will be paid. This does exact justice to the purchasers of the tickets and to the association. In order that the ticketholders shall have as surance that every number sold is represented in the wh?el the inspection of ticketholders is invited at the close oi the drawing. For this purpose every facility will be afforded by the officers in charge. 1 trust that what has been done by the man agers will give satisfaction to ail who take an interest in this work. I know that the man agers have spared no effort or precaution to secure j _stice to all. Upoo the conclusion of Mr. Barbour's ad dress, Lieut, Gov. Thomas announced that the drawing would commence, and Master Joseph G ales Holcomb and Earnest Proser Holcomb were stationed at the two wheels, and after I several revolutions of each drew the numbers! and prizes. Col. M. D. Ball received the num bers and announced them to the audience, and LI. W. Falls,etq.,received from '.he other wheel and also annouueed the corresponding prizes. The only difficulty experienced in the drawing consisted in an imperfection in the large wheel, from which a number ol the tickets fell, but they were speedily replaced before any other numbers were drawn. As each of the larger by prizes was drawn the circumstancewas hailed cheers from the crowd and music from the band. To whom the prizna that have been drawn have fallen, it is impossible, of course, to say, for many dou't like it to be known that their purses have been replenished in such a way,and on the contrary, many who have not drawn a single ceDt like the reputation of being lucky, and to achicve it have reported that they have drawn prizes. Rumors of numerous lucky in dividuals are current on the streets, but none of them are reliable, except, possibly, the one that Mr. 0:to Portner holds the eighth of a $10,000.
