Trzasurt Notes. 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
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
Tho Richmond Dtujtatch, of November 10, In
an article on "The Elections In Vandeedom,"
"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."

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
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. 'Her rendition of Coniey Carl) lo
In East Lynno w a au Intercstlngportralture of
au ancient maiden lad), and the audience did
not fall to appreciate her excellencies therein.
Miss Viola Crocker also Is n young lad),
whoso good sense and Innate qualities, glvo a
charm to all her personations on the stage.
She Isdecldcdl) n favorite actress with tho fre
quentors at Grovers. So also Is Miss Kate
Deuln, w bo, however dlfllcult her parts, Is al
ways equal to the task, and never falls to please.
She Is too well known a an actress hero as
elsewhere to need any pari leu I ir notice at our
baud.. Miss Sophie Glmbcr and the Monk
girls do well their parts. So wo maj sit down
this combination, taken all and In all, stars In
cluded, aft a first class compaii).

Indeed, rare that so many persons, cadi good.

company of this kind. Where all dothclrparta
so well, It Is difficult to make mention of any

"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. MlssCarr,as
Patty Probity, gaa a delightful nnd admirable
Interpretation of the role, verj Justly sharing
the applause bestowed upon tho gifted repre
sentative of her genial husband. Mr. Bailey
personation of old Solomon Probity, the cun
ning and senile centenarian, Is among tho
most excellent efforts of the kind ever, w Uncsscd
by us. The scenery of the piece, by Mr. Chats
S. Gctz, Is capital quite different lu Its me
chanical arrangements from anything of the
kind ever before exhibited In Washington. The
"Chimney Corner" will bo repeated lo-nlgbt.
Eaton Stoie, Esq. This gentleman has

where. Wo have never seen many of tho atl

which leads one to exclaim, Involuntarll), How

Mr. Stone Is not only an accomplished und
superior equestrian, but hols u thorough bred
gentleman. To bis qualities of unsurpassed
horsemanship, he adds those nobly qualities of
head and heart, which render him a perfect
gentleman In social life, mil one of the most
companionable of men.
His Is that developement of u thorough man
hood, which Is so rare an attulnmeut In this
country, but which should bo sought uflcr by
all young men who would be what God Intend

The steamship City of Baltimore brings news
of the arrival of the Philadelphia slilp Tona

the depredations of the pirate Alabama. Tho
captain of the Tonawanda makes the follow
ing reportt
"The Touawandi, Captalu Julius, from
Philadelphia was captured by tho steamer
Alabama (SM0) on the 9th of October, at four
p, m , In latitude 41 degrees, longitude Mi de

found there Captain Harrison and crew, of tho
late bark Wave Crest, from New York for Car

lato brig Dunkirk, from New Vork to Mibon,
all prisoners and In Irons on deck, their vessels
ha lug been burnt two days previously. The
next day tho prisoners were transferred to the
Tonawanda, aud Captain Julius alone remain
ed on board the Alabama as hostage. Ou the
11th they captured aud burned the shin Man
chester, from New York to Mterpool. Her
captain and crew were alto put on lnrd the
Tonowanda, which Captain Julius was thcnln
formed was a cartel. No more prizes were
taken till the evening of the 13th, and there
being ecr) appearance of thick weather, Capt.
Julius was put on board the Tonawanda, and
allowed to proceed, after having given a rau
som bond. AH the captains, oftlcera and crew

The Tonawanda had on board the following
passengers i F. A Calhoun, of St. houls, W.

Clearing away somewhat, wo found the priva

which wus a large, full rigged ship nulling
Into his arms, for the puriose. no doubt, of

snu lllng a rut, as wo supposed, aud steered for
tho north. To our surprise the privateer, In
stead of glvlug chase, boro straight down for

Coming within a short distance she hove to,

A Negro Regiment lu Hat tie
A correspondent of the Leavenworth (Kan.)
Votua-vatlve, writing srom Butler, Bates county,
Missouri, October 30, gives this account of a
successful fight of ono of Senator Lane's negro
regiments t
"A detachment of seventy men from the
southern battalion, (Col. Seamen's), and one
hundred and sixty men from Col. William's,
(the latter under command of Captain G. It.
W ard, com pan) D, the entire detachment under
uoionei seaman, wno acted unucr instructions
from Major Hcnnlng,) arrived at this point on
Tuesday afternoon, having left Fort Lincoln
late ou Monday. The enemy's scouts wero seen
lu force when we arrived at this point, the res
idence of an Infamous guerilla named Tooth
mm, whose son Is now a prisoner at Fort Lin
coln. We were aiming to clean out a rendez
1 ous near here, on what Is known as tho Island,
a large, marshy, tract of land, l)lng In the
Usage, which has been tho resort of tho Jack
man and Cockcrlll bushwhackers. Wo found
the latter In force, with a splendidly mounted
and armed lody, variously estimated at from
four hundred to eight hundred men. The prob
ability Is that tho flret named was tho correct
estlmato, but since our arrival ho has been re
inforced, till his command number over six
hundred. We encumped within Toothman's
)ard, throwing up a rail barricade, and raising
a flag. We named the place 'Fort Africa.'
"Sendlnff back for cavalry and for tho re
mainder of the regiment, wo skirmished two
da)s. Ycstcrdr) morning our skirmishers shot
two scouts. Alter dinner tho enemy succeeded
In draw lug out n small detachment and cutting
It oif from our main lody. A sharp engage
ment ensued In tho attempt to rcscuo our do
tat hment. Wo lost eight men killed and ten
wounded Capt. Crew, company A, First reg

llonac, was killed. lieutenant Joseph Gard

in a week or two. The enemy riport fifteen kil

"Ills useless to talk any mora of uetrro cour
age. Tho men fought llko tigers, each and c er)
one of them, and the main dilllcnlty w as to hold
them well In hand.
"We have Jut received retnforcements, and
but o Intelligence of u guerilla force that renders

the follow lng p iKsat :
"Of the subordinate otllccrsrefirred to In this
case, the Commission finds, with the exception
of Col. Thos. II, Ford, nothing In their couduet
that calls for censure."
The newspaper accounts of the surrender,
aud the evidence before the Commission, show
that Col, D'Utass) deserved something more
than this negatUe approval. It was Colonel
D'Utass) who, on his own responsibility, sent
four companies lo Maryland Heights twent) -four
hours after they had !een deserted by our
forces, and brought awa four Napoleon guns.

John H. Thompson thus writes from Itlch-

There Is talk of Ocncral Lee's falling back to
within a few miles of this city for his winter
quarters, and It Is quite possible that a change
oi position may uo auopieei, lor reasons cou
ncctcd with tho question of supplies and trans
portation. 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. So that the mere fact that tho with
rawal of den. Lee would a second tlmo expose
that section to hostile ravago wonld bo of no
W e hav o no city news. Garrotlng, burglary,
drunkenness, In spite of the provost marshal,
and all manner of villainy, aro on tho Increase
most alarmingly, and provisions nro constantly
advancing In price. 1 lour Is Wi a barrel here.
In sight of the largest mills In tho world, and
butter Is dlfllcult to obtain at 91.00 per pound.
On tho 24th, Thompson thus describes tho
condition of municipal affairs In ltlchmond i
Richmond Is now worse than Naples worse
than Baltimore was when A Inter Davis was
tho W likes of tho Plug Ugly swell mob of that
lawless city. No ono tldnks of going Into tho
Cimmerian streets, after nightfall, without
arms. A large and wcll-organlrcd band of
cut throats has " taken the town.' They lie In
wait at almost ev cry corner, well prov ldetl with
slung-shot, 1 lilies, brass knuckles, and all the
devilish Implements of mischief whlclrthc city
hlghwa)inan uses to disablo his victims, and
the) attack everybody that walks along, often
times gentlemen when attended by Indies. That
they aro not found out Is matter of grave re
proach to tho city police. But this corps Is so
small that they cau do llltio for tho protection
of a cit) spread over au immense surface of
ground, and without a light from ono end of It
to tho other.
That so numerous a gang cau Infest ltlch
mond at all, walking lu the streets In tho day
time, without ostensible means of support, aud
doing nothing whatever, ts a proof of the pal
pable Inefilclcncy of tho conscript law. h)
these men aro not eu rolled by tho proper o til
lers (for they cannot possibly Im exempt)
passes all comprehension. Hut u promenade
down Main street any day will show vou hun
dreds of Idlers, fashionably dressed, with over
much tawdry Jewelry, sporting watch-chains
that might and should hang them, for, be)ond
all doubt, In theso groups at the comers one
sees tho very scoundrels that rob honest cltl
rens after dark.
A few nights ago, the police mado a descent
upon one of tho dens or cribs of the gaug, and
captured sixteen, who were taken to Castle
Thunder. There aro probably more thau tw entv
times that number In the clt), and unless some
thing Is done to put a stop to their outrages
soon, there will be a prlrate patrol and some
hanging done hi the lamp post quite im
promptu. Tho firm of Hjxall. Crenshaw A, Co . of this
city, had a contract with the Government for
grinding wheat Into flour, upon which the)
made a pro tit of between five and six thousand
dollars dall). I heard,)csterda),that theyhul
refused au offer of $500,000 for tho contract.
Tho Immense amount of wheat required to keep
their wheels going has raised tho price of flour

A &lulncaut Historical Fact IU I V fil.
A striking commentary upou tho discredita
ble eagerness displaced bv England to Inter
fere In our affairs will bo revived b) tho recent
revolution In Greece. Many persons to whom
tho rev olt of tho Greeks against tho Turks, and
their long and unrecognized struggle for Inde
pendence, uaa become aimosi lorgotteu events,
will now bo overhauling their histories. In
doing this they will bo certain to group together
certain lucis ana uaies wmcii win piace in uroaa
and dligracsful contrast tho conduct of England
lu tho two cases.
Tho Greek revolt was that of u people who
had enjoed centurea of separata uatlonallt),
against their conquerors. It w as tho rising of u
people with whom freedom and independence
wero time honored traditions, against an abso
lute aud ruthless despotism It was a struggle
or Christianity ana civilization against via nom
danism and barbarism. Tho revolution was
preceded and accompanied, at Cyprus, at Sclo,
at Bucliarcst aud other plates, b) the most hor
rlble wholesale massacres, bv tho Turks, re
corded in history. Thcro was cvcrvthlug In
tho struggle to excite tho noblest s)inpulhlcs of
Christendom in lavor oi mo urccks, ana to
justify Intervention. But there was uo Inter
vention, uo recognition, uo sign oi syiupaui)
from the Government of Englaud,
From 1831 to 1821 tho Greeks fought ou, for
four long ) ears, when their Provisional Gov
ernment impioriu uio protection oi cngiauu,
but that Incarnation ot all that Is selfish and
heartless In the human race turned a deaf car
to their petition, und left them to battle on
alone for two vears more, until Juh, 1MJ7.
Then sho joined Fruuco and IEumI-i lu their re
cognition of the nationality of Greece. It took
nix years ou that occasion to convince Great
Britain that tho hrivu Greeks had established
a nation.
In every aspect tho revolt of tho Cotton
States against tho Union the most beiielleent
Government tho world ever saw Is tho vcrv

and outraged Greeks, and )it Fngland lu lids
