that our bottle is not refilled with spurious and deleteriou

sell only in our log cabin bottle. Any person imitating

This week will be a week of battles—of terrible,
awful slaughter—of victory and of defeat.
May God, in his infinite mercy, cause victory to
porch on the banners of the republic, on the ori
flammes of right, and may He confound forever
those who, in the madness of ambition, are
laboring to destroy the best government on
Perhaps, even at this writing, the echoes of a
thousand cannon are heard along the banks of
the Tennessee, the Rio Grande, the Rapidan and
on the shores tof the bay of Charleston.
A battle is imminent, if indeed it has not
already been fought, between the patriots under
Bosecrans, and the insurgents led by' Bragg,
Johnston and Longstreet near Chattanooga, on
the Georgia line. Should it result disastrously to
OlU' arms, Bosecrans will be compelled to fall
back to the fortifications on the Tennessee, re
cently wrested by him from the rebels; but
should ho defeat his opposers, Georgia from its
northern boundary to Atlanta, whore is the only
remaining railroad connection in the possession
of rebels with the Gulf States, falls into our
hands, and with it the military control of Alabama
and Mississippi, leaving only to the insurrection
ists Southern Georgia, South and North Carolina
and Eastern Virginia. Giving, however, to the
very wild and mountainous region of country
in which the army of the Cumberland is necessi
tated to operate, it will, even with reasonable
success in all the operations of the campaign, be
many days before its advanced columns can possi
bly reach the point aimed at. It is not to bo sup
posed that the insurgents will leave Bosecrans
to march unopposed. Every effort will be put
forth to check his progress, and if possible drive
him back and beyend the Tennessee. To think
otherwise is to hold that the traitors are incapable
Of bringing an army into the field. Rather than
that Atlanta should fall into the hands of the
army of the Cumberland, the rebels will abandon
Eastern Virginia and North Carolina. They can
retire from these better than they could give up
the only road that connects the Atlantic with the
Gulf States ; for, deprived of Atlanta it will be
impossible for them to find subsistence for an
army of any considerable magnitude in tho
vicinity of Richmond.
The rear of the army of the Rio Grande (if in
deed one has gone there) left New Orleans on
the 9th, and it is more than probable, has
already conquered the enemy in the vicinity of
Brownsville. Our impression, however, is, that
it has really sailed for some point near Mobile,
rendezvousing at Ship Island. But it is useless
to speculate on the probable operations of this
army. 'Whether destined for Texas or Alabama
it will, under the leadership of such gallant an 1
oipablc soldiers as Grant, Banks and Franklin,
do the work cut out for it.
It is yet a question whether Gen. Gilmore, as
sisted by Admiral Dalghren, will continue hia
assaults on the rebel batteries on Sullivan and
James Islands, and reduce them to comp ete
silence ; or, failing to make an immediate impres
sion on them, turn his guns upon Charleston and
destroy it. We may rest assured that he will do
that which is right, and to the entire satisfaction
of loyal men and women.
A movement has certainly taken place in the
army of the Potomac. It is now on tho Rapidan,
and the probability is that it will cross it some
time this week. A battle will in all probability
follow, and the fate of Richmond may be deter
mined thou and there ; but, should the rebels
fall back, as it is feared they will, Gen. Meade
will, necessarily, be compelled to follow them to
their - entrenchments before the rebel capital. Ou
the other hand, should the fortunes of war be
against them in Northern Georgia, it is question
able if any serious effort will be made to retain
Eastern Virginia, which with Rosscrans advanc
ing on Atlanta can be of no possible use, in a
military sense, to them.
The progress of the arms of the Republic in
the Trans-Mississippi region is satisfactory.
Gen, Bobadil Price, with his corps of lieutenants,
has been defeated in Arkansas. Its capital,
Little Rock, was entered on the 17th inst. Tho
“ army” of course retreated and is now doubt
less well on its way to Texas. Little Rock is
the stragetie point of Arkansas. It commands,
by its railway connections, the southern and
easterly counties of the State. The northern
division is loyal, and necessity will compel the
inhabitants of the southerly half to assume that
“virtue, if they have it uot," for they are now
entirely at the mercy of the national troops.
—wox — t'lxc —tidti or operations, m
eluding thousands of square miles, we can see
nothing to dishearten the loyal. Eastern Ten
nessee is redeemed—its inhabitants are free, and
once more under the flag they so dearly love.
In six months from this time, we trust that all
tine hearts will be disenthralled, and that the
rebellion will be at an end.
Our Neighbors of the Sunday Mer
cury are in great tribulation at the astonishing
success of the Dispatch. In their last issue,
these people gave evidence of a feverish state of
excitement. Wo are really sorry for them, but it
is no fault of ours that the business community
so overcrowd us with advertisements as to make
it necessary for us occasionally to issue double
sheets to make room tor their favors. Our adver
tising coluins this week will fully explain our
troubles. Again we are forced to leave out a
mass of interesting matter prepared for this issue
to make room for the favors of the business
community. Had the Mercury people shown the
right sort of enterprize—avoided tho clap-trap
of sensation dispatches, and bogus news—and
employed people of talent to write for them—as
the Dispatch has done—they would not have
been driven to the necessity of using English
stories, and printing their sheet on a dingy kind
of wrapping paper as is now the case with them.
Let them stop growling at the prosperity of the
Dispate/i, and wo will see if we can’t do some
thing to help them out of their troubles. We aro
not disposed to be angry with the Mercuru ~ for
its exhibition of ill temper. The publishers of
that sheet have had misfortunes enough during
the past six months to sour the temper of better
men. It is no trifling matter to loose both circu
lation and advertising patronage at the rate
the JUercuri/ has done during the past year.
Hence we can excuse them tor these flings at
their more fortunate rivals in trade.
The election which took place in
Maine, on Monday last, resulted in a decided
Union victory. The majority of Cony, the

80 Union to 1 Democratic, and the House 110

Our hearts tremble with joy A majestic flag-black, red
and gold—ct which the poet or people, Freiligrath,
sang :
Powder is black,
•Blood is red.
Golden flickers the flame.
Indeed, this flag inspired us with respect and admiration.
It possesses such a solid solemn air. It forebodes a good
deal. Several individuals are furiously winding their way
toward the entrance. They, too, wish to inspect the ship.
We hasten toward the gate. A stalwart fellow is there.
He insists upon inspecting our tickets. This fs mysterious •
very mysterious? Why be so particular, if a fellow wishes
to inspect a ship. We pass in and ascend a towering scaf
fold. Another stalwart fellow—gracious me—we’ll have
to run the gauntlet through a whole army, merely for the
sake of inspecting a ship. "Descend, and tarn to tho right,”
the stalwart fellow on deck cried with a stentorian voice.
‘ All right. Much obliged. Turn to the right.” What the
deuce does he mean? We enter an elegant long cabin or
salon. What splendor—what rich and elegant simplicity,
beautiful paintings, representing views from old father
land and also from Uncle Sain’s dominions, grace the
walls. An excellent piano enriches the furniture of this
really sumptuous salon. There are many small salons,
fitted up in the same neat, cozy and elegant manner, Upon
each table there is a vase of flowers. How thoughtful these
Germanians arc. At this moment Weinlich steps in.
Great embrace. “What are you doing here? Are yon
too to inspect the ship?” “I come in the name of An
schutz!” the solemn basso sail. “I commenced to in
spect it from below.” “From below!” we both ex
claimed in astonishment. “Is it much finer below as
above?” Weinlich chuckled with heart and soul, one of
those Bohemian laughs you can never forget. A mysteri
ous smile played around his lips. Sacrisfie! we must
go down. Gracious me! what a multitude of people are
inspecting .the ship. The hum and roar were quite deafen
ing. About—well, we will say from 300 to 4'JO—persons
were crowded around long tabies covered with the most
tempting luxuries, such as only a Hamburg kitchen could
invent, lowers of “Butterboemchen” (the coat of arms
of Northern Germany), confitures, cakes, and a hundre 1
other delicacies too numerous to mention. Our mouths
filled at once with water, and a most vociferous thirst
made its appearance. Every scat was occupied. Pa
tience ! we said, some of these gentlemen will get up to
inspect the ship. Not a soul moves. At last we espied an
editor of the Abend Mr. Reinark —he always proves
a helping Messiah in-such ticklish cases. He introduced
us to Mr. Richard, of the firm ot Richard & Boas, bankers
and ship agents, and Mr. Richard promptly ordered two
chairs tor us. “What do you wish, gentlemen—Burgun
or Lagerbier?” asked the polite
waiter, cautiously omitting champagne—most likely to
lay ma stock for himself, the rascal! “Champagne
we ponderously ordered. It came. Two glasses were
filled, and the bottle deposited in the immediate neigh
borhood oi our elbows. In the twinkling ef an eye the
champagne disappeared—an invisible hand had seized the
bottle. Ah, there it is far down the table! “Walter,
another bottle!” They have grasped our old bottle.
Waiter brings another. Two gentlemen of the Press
enter. We hail them. Here is the place. Thunder and
lightning! the second bottle has disappeared. Is
Gabriel Ravel in our midst, or have they ghosts
onboard the ship. “Waiter! another bottle!” Now,
this bottle is ours-must be ours—hold on to it. We treated
the new comers and held the bottle firmly in our grasp.
We gave up our seat to the new friends, reccommending
several delicacies and impressing them with the important
maxim : Never to lose their hold on the bottle. While
this was going on at our table, the roar of artillery at the
table where the German editors were seated fairly com
menced. How do you like the Champagne, whispered
we to one, en passant. “Too sweet,” was the answer in
a low voice. Yet the echo of bursting Cliampagne bottles
filled the stately vessel.
Of Port wine or “ Sherry” very little was seen. Two
strange looking, rather scaly looking individuals crammed
themselves into a corner drinking lager-beer and devour
ing a “Butterboemchen.” They must have escaped the
argus eye of the Cerberus above and smuggled themselves
into the ship. I bet they were the only individuals who
suspected the Champagne was the parole!
I could tell you horrible consequences of this Cham
pagne frolic, but I rather remain quiet. The ladies at a
separate table were quite lively, of course, keeping well
within bounds, but upon their faces one could sec, they'
were enlightened beings. No offense, however! They
were very orderly. The Captain of the ship H. Eh
lers, was politeness, itself. “With that captain I like to
make a voyage” we heard many voices say. We wished
for particulars. There was nobody who had seen, or
inspected the ship. The company must 'have had an
inkling of this, so they had the description printed, copies
of which the stalwart fellow distributed to those “ icho
had inspected the ship. v We haveseenit. It is without ex
ception one of the finest steamers we have ever inspect
ed. It is a floating fairy-palace, and there is no luxury,
no comfort, it does not possess within its territory. Par
ison miniature. Now for the particulars.
The. Germania is a new ship, built by Messrs. Crird <%: Co.,
Greenock, 2,900 tons gross measurement, 500 horse power,
with surface condenser, super heater, and all modern im
provements which engineering skill could devise. The
shaft, and all the principal parts of the engine, are of cast
steel, and were manufactured in the renowned establish
ment of Mr. Kropp. Essen. The steamer has two direct
acting engines, a Griffith’s patent propeller, cylinder sev
enty-two inches diameter with four feet stroke, seven
water-tight compartments, eight ventilators, eight Fran
cis’ metallic life-boats, three fire-engines, and a distilling
apparatus, which furnishes daily forty hogsheads of fresh
water —is bark-rigged, and takes in her bunkers nine hun
dred and fifty tons of coal. Her length is 329 feet, breadth
40 feet, depth 33 feet. The ceiling of the main-deck is
wholly composed of iron, covered with a coat of three
inch deck-planks, thereby giving not only great strength
to the ship, but also entirely preventing any leakage iu the
between-decks. On the voyage from Hamburg to this
port, the Germania averaged, against strong head winds,
a rate of twelve and a half knots per hour, her average
speed being fourteen knots. The internal arrangements
may be safely said to be perfect. It would be difficult to
suggest anything affecting the comfort or security of the
passengers, which has not been provided. The cabins are
elegantly fitted up ; the table and attendance lem e noth
ing to lie desired. The crew consists of one hundred men,
and the following officers: Captain, H. Eiders; First
Officer, Mr. Franzen ; Second Officer, Mr. Keyne ; Third
Officer, Mr. Frobos; Fourth Officer, Mr. Herbst; First
Engineer, Mr. Hellwajf; Second Engineer, Mr. Homeyer ;
Third Engineer. Mr. Gall; Fourth Engineer, Mr. Franz ;
Physician, Dr. Praraann; Purser, Mr. Baas.
The Company’s agents iu New York are Kunhardt & Co.,
General Agents ; C. B. Richard <t Boas, Passenger Agents.
The Germania left yesterday for Southampton and Ham
burg, to which ports she will run regularly.
A Bachelor in Difficulty.—One of
oiU’ Hartford bachelors, whose greatest fault con
sists in not having •married a quarter of a cen
tury ago, sought refuge from the heats of August
and the loneliness of celibacy, at one of the sea
side retreats. Late one evening quite a party
were seated on the piazza, enjoying the fresh
breezes, and among the rest an affectionate mar
ried couple. The wife chanced to step away for
a few moments, when the husband soon followed.
Thinking the coast was clear, our bachelorfriend
innocently took possession of the chair just va
cated by the husband. An instant after, the lady
returned, and mistaking. the strangnr for her
husband, lovingly encircled his neck with her
dewy arm, gave him an affectionate kiss, and re
marked, “ Come, darling, is it not about time to
retire ?” He did not faint, and the darkness 6on
ccaled his blushes. Of course the shock was
very severe and dangerous, but his numerous
friends will be glad to hear that a council of phy
sicians have pronounced hopefully in favor of
his ultimate recovery.—ZZaWford Coicrant.
A Sumptuous Entertainment.—Yrtcr--
ter from Madrid states that the Duke d’Osuna
recently rewivoa-Queen Isabella and the royal
family at his property of Alameda. The fete is
described as of extraordinary magnificence.
The gardens were illuminated at night by 9900
lights, and a supper of a most splendid descrip
tion was given at two in the morning, everything
at the royal table being served on gold.
A Libel.—Perhaps the most atro
clous libel upon the super-excellent sex ever uttered by
man was perpetrated by a Roman sage of the name of
Seneca, who prided himself upon his terse sayings, and
put his opinion of in the form of question and an
swer, as follows: “What is more’unstable than air?
Lightning. What than lightning? Fame. What than
fame? Woman. What than woman? Nothing.” The
anther of this calumny came to a bad end. Being notified
that bis life was forfeited to public justice, he opened his
veins and bled to death. Some people think he met his
just dues. ___
Miss Susan Evans, the Cambrian Or
ator (15 years of age).—This juvenile advocate of the
cause of temperance made her debut before an American
audience on Tuesday evening, at the Welsh Presbyterian
Church, East Thirteenth street. Tho pastor of the church,
Rev. Dr. Marsh, of the Temperance Union, made a most
impressive and appropriate prayer. The Chairman then,
in a few appropriate,remarks upon ‘rhe Temperance
cause, introduced the young lady, who was received
with hearty applause. Miss Evans is a young lo.ly of
very prepossessing appearance, and, for her years, of re
markable self-possc-t-sion. She is slender in person, of
Eleasing and mobile expression of countenance, and she
as on eye of expres.-ive and quick penetration. Her
voice, though not strong, is clear and distinct, and will
in time, if judiciously cultivated, become of large-com
pass. We must acknowledge we were more than grati
fied with the youthful lecturer. At times she moves you
to tears, at others provokes you to laughter. She has a
glorious mission before her, aud wc understand she has
already done much good in her native land, as well as
in England, Scotland ami Ireland, wiioro, at times, she
has addressed audiences of four to five thousand people.
The American Consul at Bristol urged her strongly to
come to America, aud we understand i- > hei* wish to
devote a portion of the proceeds of her labors to mitigate
the sufferings of the widows and orphans of our brave
soldiers. It is no small praise that a child of less than_
fifteen summers should have so far influenced tier home
circle as to rescue her father from iiabits of dissipation,
and effected in him a thorough reformation. We would
council her friends to a judicious guardianship of her fu
ture, by subjecting her to the severe and careful superin
tendance of able teachers. In the meantime, we under
stand steps are being taken. as suggested by Dr. Marsh,
to give the public an opportunity of hearing this wonder
ful child in one of our large public halls.
On Sunday last, as a party of fugitive
slaves, thirty in number, were making their way to
Washington from their masters’ homes in Ann Arundel
and Calvert counties, through Centreville, a rebel patrol
attempted to stop them. The slaves resisted. Some of
them were armed with old muskets, and attempted to use
them, but they hung fire. The patrollers then fired in
among the fugitives, and wounded five of them, two seri
ously. Most of the slaves were then taken in charge by
their owners, who had by this time overtaken them. One
of the slaves received a load of fine shot in the face, by
which both eyes were entirely destroyed.
The Albany Journal announces the
death of the Hon. John Taylor, ex-Mayor of that city.
He was a resident of Albany for more than seventy years,
and during that period no man was more highly esteemed
by his fellow-citizens. His first commencement at busi
ness was as a tallow chandler, with his father. While at
this he was three times burnt out. He commenced a
brewerv in 1832, and acquired a great celebrity through
out tlie United States for “ Taylor's Ale,”
A Christening Party, among the
guests at which were several of our operatic celebrities,
was given at the house of Mr. John I. Snedikct’. a: Flat
bush. L. 1., on the 12th inst., the host of the occasion being
Signor Don Ambrosio de Cardenas, a well known Cuban
gentleman of high standing, and one of the foremost
patrons of music in the island referred to. The party was
given in honor of the birth of Sig. Cardenas’ first child,
who, by right of birth and maternity, may lav legitimate
claims to being an American, and, consequently, liqblc to
some future draft. Mad. Cardenas is an American lady of
great taste and refinement, and nearly as enthusiastic a
lover of the “divine art” as her husband, and, conse
quently, the votaries of music were eager to do honor to
an event which is ever ofsuoh deep interest to young pa
rents. The occasion was a very great success. Master
Miguel Cardenas, received the Church's sanction to his
wearing the first of those names, through -the aid of the
Rev. Dr. Cummings, of this city. The company was very
fashionable and select Among the guests were Gotts
chalk, the great pianist. Signors Maccaferri, Sppolito,
Fa rati, Muzi and Barilli, whose various efforts were sus
tained by an excellent band of music. The dinner was
in the very best style of Mr. Sncdiker and drew forth the
praises 01 the assembled guests. From 2 o’clock, I’. M.,
until midnight, there was no flagging of the pleasures of
the guests.
Academy of Music, Brooklyn.—Miss
Laura Keene opens this house to-morrow night for a limi
ted season. Chas Reade's comedy of “Masks and Faces,”
is the initial play ; and it will bo well sustained by a first
class company. On Wednesday night, a spectacular bnr
letta, entitled “The Marble Maiden, or the Ghost of Co
-logne,” by Mr. Frank Wood, will be given for the first
time. Tnis mtrietia is tmacrstobd - to be of the happiest
character, and will surely bring down the house with its
fun and frolic. lathe programme this much is hinted at
of its character : “These ghosts are the ghosts—they walk i
they talk!! they eat!! they drink!! Tney advance to
the footlights!!! and, aided by the scientific apparatus of
Professor Pepper (nice young man!), imported expressly
for the benefit of the natives and inhabitants of Nassau
Inland (commonly called Brooklyn), are equal, if not stipe
rior, to any other ghosts alive or dead.” At the close of
her engagement at the Brooklyn Academy, Miss Keene
with her company, will journey westward, making the
tour of the leading cities.
Wood’s Minstrel Hall.—We noticed
last week no diminution of the throngs we have frequent
ly adverted to as being nightly beheld at this far-famed
Hall. On the contrary, if possible, the audiences appear
to be growing larger each night, and in proportion to the
crowds in attendance have the attractions increased. The
performances this week will embrace a large variety of
Wood’s best productions, including a first-rate “Ghost.”
Let it be borne in mind that there is a Ghost manifestation
at every Saturday matinee. Wood’s “Ghosts” are ac
knowledged to be equal to the best in the city—no small
praise at tliis juncture.
The Bryants.—Another attractive
bill of performances is announced this week, to which we
direct attention for particulars. Praise of the Bryants
seems superfluous, their hall being crowded every night,
and their clever hits eliciting thunders of applause. Every
department is now perfect. The ballad and chorus sing
ing cannot be surpassed ; their dancing is conceded to be
superior to that of any other similar place in the Union,
and their burlesques are inimitable. As was the case for
weeks before, hundreds, last week, were debarred even
standing room. If you go this week, go early.
Park Theatre, Brooklyn.—This bi
jou of a house opened for the first time on Monday eve
ning last to an^over-crowded house—hundreds being un
able to obtain even standing room. As we have already
described this elegant establishment, it is not necessary to
recur to it further than to say that ail who have been so
fortunate during the past week (for the auditorium has
been crowded at each performance's to gain admittance
have pronounced it one of the finest places of amusement
they have over visited. The company, though small, is
a capital one, and has given, with full acceptance, “Mar
ried Life” “Loan of a Mover,” “The Soldier’s Daughter,”
and “Jenny Lind.’’ These were the pieces of the week, the
characters in all being well sustained. To-morrow night,
with new scenery, dresses and appointments, “Beauty
and the Beast” will be presented. This piece has hi-on
pr«-j>nrauoii ror some tiay:?, ana win no properly put on
the stage, which we trust it will hold for a season. Miss
Mary Shaw assumes the character of Bendy; Mr. G. H,
Andrews that of’&'i 1 Aldgatc Pump ; Mr. Walter Lenox as
John Quito; and Mrs. Frank Rea as the Beast. A capital
cast. It is one that warrants us in assuring the public
that the audiences will not be disappointed in the rendi
tion of the piece, The Park theatre has become a fixed
institution in the City of Churches—and a thorn in the
side of the Academy.
Fox's Old Bowery Theatre.—The
‘ Mistletoe Bough” at the Old Bowery is one of the most
attractive dramas ever produced in this city. The lan
guage is refined, the stage appointments elegant, and the
acting throughout excellent. All the members of the
company engaged in it deserve special praise for their
respective impersonations. The “spectral illusions” in
this stirring piece are very fine, in fact, as near perfection
as art can render them. During their continuance, the
audience sit spell-bound. The “Mistletoe Bough” will be
repeated every night this week, together with a variety
of other charming entertainments. On the list, we ob
serve “Pongo. the Intelligent Ape,” Mr. G. L. Fox per
sonating Albino, and Tony Denier, the Ape. Miss Louisa
Browne will appear in some of her elegant dances ; and
Mr G. W. Thompson will personate “Hawkset” in the
play entitled “False Colors ; or the Free Trader.”
The fine business which the Old Bowery is doing is
the general theme of conversation among play goers.
Under its present able management it has achieved a
series of successes of which any theatre in the world
would have reason to be proud. The audiegee nightly at
traded there are discriminating as well as appreciative,
and the applause they bestow upon the points which
elicit it, testify to their judgment and taste. We make
these remarks with peculiar gratification, as we have
watched with interest the steady progress of the theatre
in every feature conducing to its prosperity, feeling as*
surred that Mr. Fox would soon reap a golden harvest,
such as he can now boast of. Continued success to him.
New Bowery Theatre.—The bill for
this week is one of the most attractive we have ever no
ticed. It announces the re-appearance of that talented
artiste and amiable lady, Mrs. W. G. Jones, and the en
gagement of Mons. M. Verrecke, tlie wonderful gymnast.
The English and French papers have teemed with his
praises, and we cannot doubt that his appearance here
will produce a great sensation.
Another Ghost drama will be played this week, entitled
“The Night Demon, or The Dream Spectre,” in which
Mrs. Jones and Mr. G. C. Boniface wilt personate prom
inant parts. The elegant comedy of “Perfection,” and
the fine melodrama ot “The Golden Farmer” will also be
performed. The late hour at which the advertisement of
this theatre was re.ceived last night, prevents us from go
ing into details.
The New York Theatre, corner of
Broome street and Broadway, has already received fa
vorable notice from us. The Maitinctti and Marzetti
trouper, combined, present very strong attractions. The
deautiful and dashing [Marietta Zanfretti is also a mem
ber of the company, and is nightly greeted with the most
unbounded applause. This combination are doing tlie
pantomimes which have made the Ravel troupe so cele
brated, and it is not saying too much when we declare
that the performances of the former compare favorablv
with lit Ha ter. Much credit is due to Mr. Grossi, the
stage manager, for the admirable manner in which his
department is conducted. That and the orchestra under
Fenelon appear to be perfectly en rapport.
Mr. Bandmann has been requested to
play “.Hirmfcf,” and may possibly play the part next Sat
urday night. Mr. B.’s “Hamlet 1 ' is a most novel and origi
nal creation. His version is entirely different from that
we used to sec on the American stage. His conception is
one of peculiar freshness, and is pervaded by a fine poeti
cal spirit. No doubt a new conception of this part could
not tail to create a sensation.
Vestvali in English Drajia.—The ad
niirers of Vcstvali will, on the 29th inst., have an opportu
nity of criticising her efforts as a dramatic artist. As a
lyric tragedienne, she has long been celebrated, and it is
confidently believed that, in her new role she will be equal*
ly triumphant She will make her first appearance at
Bible’s, m “Gamea ; or, The Jewish Mother,” the author
ship of which was ascribed, nominally, to Victor Lejour;
but the play in Parisian circles was well known to have
emanated from the pen of M. Mocyuard, the Secretary of
the Emperor. Our limited space, this week, forbids a
longer notice. We shall recur to the subject in oar next
The Alhambra Pavilion—is the most
aristocratic Circus we have ever had in New York., both
from its location and the first-class and varied characters
of the entertainments, has continued to do a remarkably
fine business. The Bedouin Arabs, in their marvellous
feats of agility and.strength, and the lithesome grace of all
tbeir movements, astonish and delight all the visitors
while the great American bare-back rider, the brothers
Talleen, Herr Molique & son, the graceful gymnasts; Pro
fessor Parker, the charming and truly talented lady
equestrian, Mfllle. Sophie Sagrino and M. Sagrino’s trick
and dancing horses “Victoria” and “Mecca,” and the
many other artists of hardly less note, complete a nro
gran.ime of the most amusing and diversified deserintinn.
ToffioriTiw tncrc 'n-rn .... vi ind yertorrn-
ances, all the above artists will appear in new acts, but
there will be a still greater feature, in the first appear
ance, in America, of “Young Vicolo,” who is pronounced
to be (by the Parisian press), the most wonderful flying
trapeze performer in the world, and who was the only suc
cessful rival of the renowned Leotard, in his perilous
feat of “Zampilaerostation,” which created such an im
mense furore, and which he will introduce for the first
times _
Irving Hall.—The Stereopticon will

The Museum of Anatomy' in Broad
way, is the best institution in the city in which to derive
practical in formation. Every cabinet affords subjects for
study and reflection.
Barnum’s Museum.—The great Ger
man drama of “Brunhilda” has created a marked svns.i
tion. Everybody is talking about it. The rage of the s.-a
son—tlie bona fide Ghost—appears in it in various forms
■. n different times. Other places of amusement boast
of one, two or three “spectral illuslons”but it has been re
served for Barnum to produce a galaxy of them. But
the drama,apart from its “ghostly” features is a very flue
performance, Tha interest 1h it is maintained from be
-gHTning to end.
~ The Indian chiefs are still on exhibition. To their num
ber has recently been added an Indian Girl of the Crow
tribe, called by her admirers the “Gnddessof Night.”
She is really the modern “Pocahonta‘3” of the day.
'lke Living Sea Serpent, and a vast variety of tropical
colored fish, just received, deserves special notice, as do

ous productions of nature.
Mr. Bandmann and Mrs. Lincoln.—
Last Saturday week Mrs. Lincoln witnessed the represen
tation of “ Narcisse, or the Last Days of Pompadour,"' and
was >o enraptured with the impersonation of the Herd,
that she at once dispatched the weather-beaten Chevalier
Wickoff to Mr. Bandmann. inviting him to a dinner, at the
Fifth Avenue Hotel, for Sunday evening, at half-past 5
o’clock. Mr. Bandmann, of course, gratefully accepted
the invition, and. precisely at the time appointed, he was
in the Hotel. Mrs. Lincoln received and treated the
voting tragedian with motherly kindness, and invited him
to Washington, where he could be sure to receive an en
thusiastic welcome by the whole Court—Mr. Lincoln,
meanwhile, will finish hisessays on Shakespeare,and then
we may expect an official criticism on “ Narcisse.”
Miss Laura Keene inaugurates her
fall and winter season, to morrow night at the Acidemy

Mankind has certainly a taste for being diddled.
As a rhyme,-this did very well, but in the ease of Mr.
James M. Monroe, of Wilson street, in the citv of Wil

cheated with impunity. About ten weeks ago, Air. Mun

and possessed no faultexce.pt the persistence with which
she entertainod her “cousin” in the kitchen, he hired

He was .quite sure this was an acquisition ; so firm was
his conviction that, as she affirms, he attempted to prove
it by a series of early matinuat visits to the apartment
where she. bestowed herself for rest,and after a succession
of discomfitures retired with his turret somewha t batter

people whom she served that nothing was deemed too
good for her.
But Isabella possessed the constitutional bias so con
spicuous with the crinolined portion of animated crea
tion; she worshipped the goddess whom the ancients
supposed to have an inordinate desire to bankrupt her
person. Well, things run smoothly until one unlucky
day not long since, Mrs. Alunroe full-rigged herself and
set sail for a. cruise. The did not, however, exercise her
customary precaution, and left a large amount of valu
ables lying around loose. On her return, the rooms of
her domicil presented a queer picture; drawers were
open, handboxes minus, doors disturbed, valuables miss-.
ing—in short, the whole house would have made a fair
representation of the landing of the Pilgrims. Promi
nent among the missing articles was the innocent Isa
bella. Of course, Airs. Munroe was overwhelmed; her
only resort was a good cry, to which she devoted herself
energetically*; butwhon'the vender of gas burners re
turned from his peregrinations and discovered his loss,
great was his anger. He promptly scheduled his losses,
which comprised a gold watch ana chain, several articles
of jewelrv, about SISO in "nld.juv’ sliver pein M-tfh aa
aggregate ’iikiuc up irom ilib wile’s wardrobe amounting
to SSOO. An instant pursuit was instituted, and Miss
Downey—lsabella no longer—was finally discovered at
a pic-nic in New York, at Bellevue Gardens, foot of
Seventy-ninth street. It was there, while tripping the
light fantastic gaiter, that she fell into the arms of a
brace of ferret-eyed officers, and was transferred to
Kings County.
During her absence the appropriating damsel had not
been idle; not content, with her acquisitions in finery, she
made an onslaught on a number of dealers in fancy
and made her newly-acquired coin jingle on the counter
of many a delighted merchant, paying full rates for her
purchases, reckless of the premium. When taken she had
disposed of about SIOO ot the coin, for which she had
adorned herself in a new mantle, six rings, a la mode, ear
rings, gaiters, a bodice, stay-waist and brushes, perfume
ry, etc. Though brief, lie? career was a brilliant one.
The latest act in the drama is that Isabella, denuded of
her finery, is now in the Brooklyn jail, awaiting the ac
tion of the Grand Jury. She lias engaged a lawyer and
proposes to prove, on the day of her trial, that Mr. Al un
roe knew of all her operations; that he arranged a plan
by which she was to take what things she did and more;
meet him at a certain appointed sput, and with him to
elope to some other city, The reason that this was not
consummated she believes ro be because, after taking the
goods, she changed her mind, and did not appear as
agreed. Besides, she failed to find a large package of
money which he directed her to secure. She alleges that,
before she had been forty-eight hours in his service, he
came to her bed-room, and, carefully locking the door,
proposed whnt, to her, was most revolting. He further
repealed this for several mornings, without success, and
it was only to escape his lustful importunities that she
pretended to acquiesce. Iler story may be true, or not;
but even if it is, the salacious procedure of a master is no
proper offset lor grand larceny on the part of the maid.
Isabella will probably not be able to substantiate
her evidence by outside testimony. Her father, a Very
worthy man. hopes to keep her from State Prison, by
showing that she is not yet fourteen years of age. In that
event the House of Refuge will probably receive her.
Remarkable Escape of Seven Child

given him beer nniil he became drunk. The wagon was
