TAf. lr i i? !. r.- i W HAIL TIIM ARMT OF THE POTOMAC ADVANCE) This Is the grett qnestlon before the country, If, Indeed, thst can be called a qnestlon, which, so fsr as us advocates aro concerned, has bnt one side. There was a time wtfen we shonld haTe had no hesitation In taking the popnlar " side of this question) bnt that time has passed, and the clrcumstsnces which would hare In fluenced ondeclston no longer.exlst. 'While It Is probable that such a movement, under the right military auspices, would hare been crowned with success, still, we are now satlsled that, under the circumstances, It Is not a safe more, and, therefore, not a wise one. This majr be easily determlned'by a trite mili tary maxim of universal application. It wll) be (bind In the collection of maxims of Napo leon, republished In this country under the an. spices of Lieut. Gen. Scott, and Is from ifonte euevBe, one of the greatest military authorities of the age. It Is to this effect, "Thst the clr. cumstaces under which a battle Is to be avoided,' ordecllnea,-w, when there Is greater danger to be apprehended from defeat than advantages io be derived from victory." 'Now, let us test the wisdom of this proposed advance by this maxim. It Is admitted that at least M.OOO men are, or rather were, necessary for the defence of Washington when the last advance was made upon Richmond by the way of Jig , Peninsula. This force was evidently considered adeqnato to meet the force likely to be seni against us with our army menacing Richmond, for It was deemed tuAelenl, with the fortifications, to defend this city. The raid of Jackson and Lee Into Marylsnd, with the whole army of the Potomac and of Vlrgtnla In the Immediate vicinity, demon', straws the fallacy of such an Idea. This Invasion of the rebels shows that three times thst number of troops Is required for tho de fence of Washington, If assailed by the whole rebel army, The qnestlon, It appeara to ns, which now presents Itself la this i Can wo spare, from tho army of the Potomac a sufficient force for the defence of Washington, and still have a suffi cient force to advance upon Richmond t If the Government and the Union generals can ssfely answer this question In the affirmative, then they may aafely offer battle to the rebel army between this city and Richmond, without violating the cardinal maxim of war, quoted above. If they entertain the least doubt upon the subject, then they more on at their peril, for while their trinmph over the rebels would go but a little way towards crushing the rebellion, their defeat would Inevitably Involve the fall of Washington, andthq. consequent triumph of the revolution. Tho ..victorious rebel army would surely follow back onr routed anddemor. allied legions, overwhelm the army of the de fence of Washington; capture It, and with the supplies and munitions which they would get here; and lit, pritttge they would this' acquire, pnshontothebsnksoftheBusquebsnns, and even to the Hudson. Bnt It msy be suggested, If thts'rcasonlng bo correct, thst tho army of the Potomac will never be able to move, as the rebels .will only have to Increase their forca between this and Richmond, to perpetually hold us In check All this may be true, and still the army pf the Po tomac play an Important part, and even fife clalvepart, tn'tho contest. The array" qf the Potomac la properly an army of observation and defence, comblnedi thai la to say, an army to defend Washington and menace Richmond, whenever the rebels reduce their force sufficient. ly to enable ns, consistently with tho cardinal military maxim to which we hare referred, to dolt. As long as it oompcla the rebels to keep up their force, and protects Washington, It docs all that It ought to do, under prosent clrcum etsucc. It Is tho right wing and the vulnerable cen tre of this gigantic military position of tho reb el States which ought to be assailed and carried. Tho remaining wing may then be slmnltsneous ly assailed on both aides and the front' must finally succumb.1 Let us Illustrate by arranging the combatants npon .battlefield precisely as they are now ar ranged by 'their geographical location. Lctns suppose that tho Federal left now rested upon fortifications which, while it, the left, acted strictly upon the defensive, rendered It not only Impregnable, bnt supplied a rallying point for the discomfited centre and right wing, bnt thst the moment It assumed the offensive It became nselesst would any military man In Europo or America advise that our left wing should at tack before the enemy's centra and left should have boen carried t We think not. Tct, this appears to ns to be the exact policy of an advance of the Army of the Potomac under existing circumstances. Possibly the fortunes of war might favor ua In such a movement. Still, we know that three times already has the tide of battle been against na In this disastrous campaign. We shall Jiavo more to say upon Ihfs Import ant topic hereafter. iNTiRvnw or Friinds witii tiii Presi dent.

Mr, Dan Bctchell has achieved a distinctive complete success at this populsr Place of amusement, becsnse he has thoroughly established himself In tho convictions of Its highly Intelligent patrons, as possessed of the genuine stuff of which the true comedian Is msde. There Is always the clear ring to his fun, which never falls of the hearty, spontaneous response from. his audience.! The true come dian always dignities, the tpnrlous always de grsdes the chsracter he Impersonate. The one invariably plays the seeming psrsdox of being sbove and at the ssme time thoroughly identified with his chsracter, while the other Is ever below It. Betchell has no superior in his line among the brethren of the buskin. "The Stranger," the great drama of Kotre hue, which for three quarters of e century hss so msrvelonsly held lis cmplro on both the Eu ropean and Amorlcan stage, was on Wednes dsy evening agsln produced with Increased eclat and with even the high and polished Imper sonations, In this piece, of Macready, Vandcn hoff, Mrs. Mowatt, and Miss Cushmsn, In mem ory, Miss Western and Mr. L. P. Barrett, as Mrs. Haller and tho Stranger, challcngo tho highest admiration. In her most careful and thoroughly studied pssssges In this piece, Miss Western lsrrand, Imposing, and Impressive fiery and fitful by turns) astonishing the audi ence now with the lightning-like vividness of one dash auon soothing with the dcllcstegcn tleness of another. Her tendency of which she Is evidently conscious, and against whlcb, In her best efforts, she Is snccessfallygusrded isln the direction of a monotonous Impetuosity. For tho most part she is, ho ever, essentially imewn; a prosrr Is always smooth. Miss Ila bclla Freeman, as tho sweet and charming Countess, played hor part with rare and fascl natlng skill) and all will remember with delight Miss viola Crocker as Charlotte, andthetonch lng air she had learned of Mrs. Haller, and which she so gracefully rendered, aud with so much effect. The"WIrard Skiff," the concluding piece, was a feature of the evening's performance) the superb scenery. Illusions and tableaux, and the fine orchestral performances, allkecontrlbullng to the triumph. Mr. Bokee played Constantino an splen didly that he haa a right lo he specially men- tlonrdi'whllawearebonndtoadd lhat Mr. J. L. Barrett did not seem to us lo do his ususl excellent acting Justlco lu the Bsron, In which he Is not well cast. At any rale, on this occa sion he was wanting In the proud bearing, the eeprii du corpe, of the military character which he represented. Altogether, It was an elegant entertainment, the repetition of which would unquestionably again attract a full and de lighted house. Are we not again to have " Ol iver Twist?" The Opera, at Ford's Tiieitre. Tho really splendid opemtle spectaclo of "The Enchant' resa" Is engrossing the attention of onr fash ionable and musical worlds. The audiences thus far, attraetod by the delightful production, have not only been mnllltudlous In numbers. but hae presented those moro distinctive evi dences of a higher success, eminent Indlvldusl respectability, and tho most hrllllaut eclat of a fashionable presence. The tori diplomatique, and the highest departments of the Government, hare very fully represented In the audiences of the psst two or three nights, W the persons of severs! of their most distinguished members, or of their families. 11 The Fnehantreei" possesses tho hspplest festures of the opera, spectscle, and ballet, the highest peculiar charms of which are Mended In Its general effect. Intrinsically, IbVpleco Is one of the most meritorious kuott n to tho stsge, and It has been gotten up In a style be fitting Us merits. Scenery, costumes, and ap pointments, arc all new and very rich I a beauty. The scenic Illustrations are especially attractive In their high artistic skill and dazzling splendor. Miss Caroline Rlchlngs, upon whom devolves the burden of tho opera, sustains herduty with marked ability and grace. Her success Is char acterized by a fervor of applause, which Is sel dom evoked, even by the most gifted of foreign prima i2onai,and which Is, wo take It, as much atrUmteto.her personal beauty us lo her su perior accomplishments as a vocalist. Mr. Peter Rlchlngs renders tho character of " Ranilr" with accustomed po er nnd toste, and with an effect flattering eten to his eminent genius as au actor. Mr. Jamie Dunn, the tenor yilco of the com pany, does Justice to Haifa's sweet music, sing ing with both poa er and Judgment. Those Im portant adjuncts of the opera, the chorus and orchestra, are both efficiently organized the former Is quite effecthc and agreeable, a result dneto tho education derived from their connec tion with tho pteco durtug Us memorablo "run" at Nlblo'a Garden, New York, last summer. The ballets are also finely given, and con tribute largely to the enchanting sprlghtllness of the performance. In every department Is evident the utmost care and liberality, aud tho abundant success of tho artistic combination which the piece presents, is a dcecrvid compli ment to the good taste and talent of Mr. Ford, who offers us English opera with an excellence, and upon terms of advantago, seldom If e er bo- fore enjoyed by our cltlrens. The confuslonlucl dent, for tho first night or t o, upon the eou' centratlon of so many carriages In front of the theatre, has been entirely obviated, by tho adop tion of a evstem of setting down and taunt? up Visitors to tho opera, which enables parties to reach their privnto conveyances wttn tittle ae- lay or trouble. f N K1V Vlllllt IIUHINEBS, LAW, FINANCIAL AND COLLECTING. invoice bills 4k business notes nkciotiited.
