The old question, "what bfcoinet of the pinittf may bo changed Into this other question, "what become of th Treamry The New York Tribune of Thursday says i " Tho temporary 5 per cent, loan of 113,000, 000 asked for by the Secretary of tho Treasury has been filled up, and nearly tho whole of ft paid In, The only reason why the loan was not wholly paid In Is tho scarcity of legal tender notes. The banks hare been swept of them to make tho payments already made. Thus, o currency which It Is claimed Is In such execs sire supply as to bo depreciated SO per cent., Is so scarce at tho great money centre of the coun try that, out of 1190,000,000 In circulation, $12,000,000 cannot bo got together In two days to meet the wants of Government. The 10 per cent, deposit upon tho bids for the 7.30 per cent, loan can bo made In tho checks of the parties who contributed to the temporary loan. It would be difficult to gettogcthcrsuQlcIentlcgaN tender notes to make the. deposit, which amounts to about thirteen hundred thousand dollars.' These facts socm Inconsistent with tho theory that the Treasury notes aro piled up In the banking centres, as the basis of a paper Infla tion. They accord better with tho Idea, thrown out some ttmo ago by Thompson's Bank Note Reporter, that they aro largely hoarded through the country, whero they have been scattered In payment and bounties to soldiers. Many reasons maybe gtren for their being so hoarded. The people have more confidence In them than they hare In bank notes, and they are tho only currency, except gold and silver, which will answer for tho payment of tho Internal taxes. Tub South Rkixsei to be Coaxed. Thou sands of votes were given to tho Democratic party In tho recent elections, under the mis taken Idea that the Southern rebels would lay down their arras If the free States would only pnt the Republicans out of power. The truth Is, the rebels will never consent to como back Into tho Union "anyhow," to use Mr. Toombs wordv Tho North w 111 And Ihh out before long, and will then feel llko the negro who rolled over before a supposed Mr. Whitfield, who was not Mr. Whitfield after all, that they hare 11 totted over for nothing." If New ork had elected twenty Woods to Congress, Instead of only two, the fart would remain unchanged, that this war uul be fought out an 1 the rebel Ilou crushed, or tho Union given up. These Democrats on bended knee begging the rebels to come back and. rule the country only excite the ridicule uud contempt of the South. Tho Richmond Dtujtatch, of November 10, In an article on "The Elections In Vandeedom," sajsi "They (the Democrats) believe restoration still possible. In this respect the do not man ifest ttoelr usual sagacity. They hate tho In. i rcdlble folly to believe that there still lurks among the IkhIv of that people who have fought against tho Union as men never fought before, a secret attachment to tho old flag,' which Is tho most detested of all earthly symbols to tho whole body of the Southern people." Over DC mi It. The romancer a ho dots up the Warden ton correspondence of tho New York Herald glv e tho following oecount of the parting or Generals McClellau and Burnsldo, which we regard as worthy of being Immortal ized h a transfer to our columns t " McClellau had au immediate lntcrv lew with Burnsldo, when tho sorrowful Intelligence w as disclosed.

Ac. Theatrical Resume Theatres and places of amusement have been as prosperous the past week as usual; If any change, there has been an upward tendency In audiences, and, of course, In corresponding receipts. Managers, It seems to us, have no causo of complaint In this regard. Several stars are here at the different theatres, and these, with tho generally good stock actors and actresses, have made the past week, to the plat-goers and lovers of tho drama and of amusements generally, n sort of gala time. Mr. L. P. Barrett and Miss Lnclle Western aro drawing large and fashionable audiences at GrovcrV. We ore glad to know that Mr. Bar rctt Is to remain still two weeks longer, and we learn that somo dramas will bo put npon tho stage In which he more conspicuously shines than In tho rolen ho hni thus far pre sented. Wo trust wo nro to have his recitation of "Bhamos O'Brien" before ho leaves, cither at his benefit or on some other occalou. It Is a performance of great merit and unsurpassed excellence. Miss Western will continue some week pr two longer at this theatre, to delight the Wash ington people with her versatile powers. There are a number of first-class stock actors at Gro wer's, among whom, without Invldlousness, we moy mention Mr. Joseph Barrett, the brother of L. P. Barrettt Mr, C. Barronj Mr. Rogers, tho stage manager, who Is one of tho best character actors we know In his line; Mr. Wall, Mr. Clifford, and many others. We cannot close this account or tho male portion of that excellent cdmpan) without making due end honorable mention of that un surpassed low comedian, Mr. DanSetchell,who only need show himself, or speak a single word, when the entire house Is In a roar. Ho " In a man of luflnlto fun." There are several very excellent actresses at this Institution, among whom we may inentlou Mrs. Gcrmon.

It Is, Indeed, rare that so many persons, cadi good. and mail) of them superb.) excellent In their Bcerul vocations, aro grouped together In one company of this kind. Where all dothclrparta so well, It Is difficult to make mention of any particular persons ai excelling In their rote. "The Chimney Corner "Tho domestic drama of 77i Chimney Vomer," produced at Ford's Theatre for tho first tlmo In Washing' ton on Wednesday night, was list evening re peated, with an effect which, In connection with tho largo audience lu attendance, afforded abundant and gratifying evidence of,the In cieuslnggcnerul appreciation of the sterling merits of this delightful little domestic picture, and of the thoroughly urtlstlc excellence of Mr. aud Miss Couldock In tho person atlon of Its leading characters. Contrastcdwlth the highly wrought and meritorious "sensational pla)s, upou which tho American public havo, for ten or II 11 ecu )cars past, been feasted ulmoi t to su tlct), "Tho Chimney Corner" Is, ludeed, u simple production, and, casually read, might, by those unfamiliar with tho powerful magnet ism of S)mpathj more potent lu Its simplest touches thuu tho moHt ostentatious affectation heroism and dlgnlt), be regarded as cv en tame. But even theso hasty aud most Ill-advised critics would bo first In conceding to Its per formance, especially with the advantugo of so glftid an artist as Mr. Couldock, an ellect tho moat i hid nnd most delightful which tho high' est art. cm u when Inspired b) tho loftiest ge nius, could produce upon the heart and mind of llio auditor. If Mr. Couldock reputation rested alono Upon his personation of Peter Probll), be might securely pride hlnihcir upon tho abiding char acter of his fume. Undertho calm advisement of u theatrical experience cohering tho pant twent) )enrs, wo confidently award it u fore most position among the most brilliant und tender bits of natural ucttng of which the his trionic urt In this country tun boast. It is worth) of bclug associated with bis Luke Field ing, and to be remembered In connection with Charlotte Lushman's "Meg Merllles," I.)san der Thompson's "Bob T)kc," Iturlon'a "Cup'n Cuttle," and other graphic portraitures of char aitir destined to lo peipeiuutud among tho proudcht traditions of thu American singe The pathos of this c Hot t of Mr. Couldock Is really exquisite. Tho transition from tho dotlug coutldemeof an Ingenumi nature, lu tho pro- bit) of uu only ttou, to the "clucunt couWctlon of tlut soil's utter baneiuss Is so sudden so abruptly sbutleied tho biaulltul contentment of the houestotd chundler's charmed circle or home that the uudltor w ho has follow t d w 1th eurucst sympathy tho Joyous progress of tho humble lather Is, by tho catastrophe ot tho Ions of tho money aosucrodl) coullded to his cure, precip itated Into au ub)ss ol uiixletyand grief bor dering as nearly upon the i cut as mcreslmulatlon can porhaps attain. The frauk humor, the ha bitual mirth, een under the oppresshe weight of his sorrow, and tho generous Joy of Probity, In tho eventual vindication of his sou's honor, are bo many flashes of genius shed upon the open pago of nature. Graco Emery, though n charmingly drawn and gcntlo character, affords but little scope for the display of any marked genius, and the most that can be said of Miss Caul dock's personation Is, that It very sweetly realized our sympathetic conception of tho author's Ideal.

This w ould leave tho country north of us again open to Yankee depredations, but It must te recollected that all tho mischief the wretches could do In that region bos already been accomplished. The whole face of nature has already been made desolate by themj all the mansions have been pillaged, all tho granaries emptied, and certainly nothing has been done since to repair the ruin. No crops hare been sown In tho fields blighted by Pope no return ing fugitives havo peopled tho solitude which ho made, and called not a "peace, but a con- 2ucst.
