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.
Poet Statistics.?From the monthly report
of the Chief of the Bureau of Statistics,Treas
ury Department, for the month of June, 1875,
ju&t published, it is learned that during that
month 14 steamers of 7,450 tons burden, with
crews numbering 220, and ouc sailing vessel of
310 tons burden, and a crew numbering 7, en
gaged in the coastwise trade, entered at, and
the same number of steamers of 7,468 tons,and
crews numbering220,and three sailing vessels of
332 tons, and crews numbering 11, in the same
trade, cleared at this port. 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 ending May 31, 1875,
the value of imports was $1,112, from Canada.
Fjr the twelve months ending the same day,
the value of the imports was $9,470. For the
month of July, 1875, the value of imports was
$6,089.
The Bureau of Statistics ought to be all right,
but instead of the oue sailing vessel, engaged
in the coastwise trade, reported by it as having
entered this port during the month of June, a
reference to the Gazette's marine news of that
month, shows 67 entered.

street at a furious rate. At Lhe corner of Sixth
and M streets, southwest,he rao against a gen

Natural Delicacy.?Among the early call
ers at a popular drinking saloon this morning
was a seedy looking individual who, after ex
periencing the reviving effects of two cocktails,
became communicative, and stated that he had
slept at the station house tor the three preceed
iuK nights, but that the officers on duty there
had treaiod him with such invariable kinduess
and consideration that his gentlemanly instincts

his weary limbs.

THE GRAND LOTTERY.
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.
The following is a list of the numbers drawn
and corresponding prizes at the time this re
port closed :
