ANOTHER CoNcEgr.-The lovers of line
music will be pleased to learn that Mr. lo%
'lao, Composer and Professor of Music, has
concluded to give another Concert for the
benefit of the Catholic Church, on Saturday
the 19th. This time it is to take place at
night, and the price is reduced one-half, and
we confidently look for a full bouse. Cer.
tainly, an occasion by which we can enjoy
an hour or so listening to the strains of .de
lightful music,'together with the reflect In
that our admission fee is to be appropris;nd
towards assisting the Church in carrying out
its acts of benevolence, will assuredly not pass
unheeded by our citizens.
iO''We tender our thanks for the
fine serenede g:ven us on Thursday n;ght,
and only regret that severe pains, almost pre.
venting locomotion, was the cause of our not
testifying our thanks in a more practical man.

Conpany, composed of theyonng men of our
town, (and decidedly the handsomest we ever

this Coupany has shown itself worthy of so

Mr. denjald'sl IUpeech.
The last speech of Senator il.IJAtIN., uIpon
the state of the country, del.vered in the U. 1
S. Senate a few days ago, has been pronnonc- 1
edl hy iis old frienlds the brst effort of his life.
Knowing the man, we can imagine his sub
lime eloqjence on the theme on which he
spoke. "Mlalou," the able Washington cotr
res-pondent of the Crescent, thus apeakl of
the speech:
I shall alwav:ys regret that I did not a
hear .Mlr. lieitianlihn's speech ,on Monday.
The Sienatell wIas soi diensely packed that, i
alfter repeated of.Irts t'o free imy way
in, I was conpellel d to leave. It munist
have been the greatest eflitt of his life, to
djudigng from its eflect on the vast a
audierice. Ie slpoke forr two hoursru., with
out a s,'litary initerrtpltion, and when ie tl
chlosed wiith the declaratiotn that thle
Silith coutld nelver be sulbjugated, the
whiole hiouse reverberated with thun
tiers of applause-men shoutilng at the
top of their voices, and the ladies stantd- b
itig up antd waving their handkerchiefs
in a dtlliritin of enthunsiasm. Suclh ta
tostimonial to a decided ,ecessionM
speech, c(lming from people ldevoted to "
the Union, was a grrand triumph. A
gentleman awho has lived here for eigh- P
teen years, anld heardl all thie great ora
tirs, said ie nIever listened to anything *
like this. Mr. Tootnlbs was no moved U
that hIe tulrned pale as a sheet. In the P
c'ralltRe of his powerftl argument, Mr. '
ik.nrjamin condescend-crd d to notice Andy
Jirhnsurt. It was lint a few sentences, A
yet my informant says it reminded him I
of an expert fishR-woman's mannirerI of dea- r
ling with an eel-an instantaneous be
heading, skinning and eviscerating-so a
quickly. ard completely was that traitor '
and demagogne used up and thrown s
aside, wriggling and squirming in the W
agrnies of death. Andy's hide is tough ;
1 doubted whether he could he made to '
feel any excoriation, no matter how
severe; btt, I am told, he looked mean t;
and, you know, when a mean man looks o
mean he in the meanest looking object
in all creation. Yes, I can never for
give myself for not hearing this fare- fe
well speech of your Senator, for such it a
was. He took formal leave of the Aboli- f
tionists, telling them they would meet C
as Senators no more again forever. t

plied, 'The Palmetto regiment will fol
Slow you.' (Cheers.) That regiment did
follow. Ere the leader advanced twen
ty steps lie fell dead. Scarce had the
regiment moved ere its banner was
st rnck down ; before it was fallen its
Slientenent clolnel took it up, and ere he
advanced two steps lie too was struck
down. Another took it, and scarce had
Slihe raised it whken he fell : and while he
was fI'alling a gallant Irishman too)k it,
f fided it round his body, and bore it on
to victnry. (Enthusiastic cheers.) There
too, was a young man-a college com
pinion of mine, and brother of my c,.l
learue, C,1. BIrooks--a lieutenant in his
company. When Shields said, 'What
regiment will follow me? and Cid. But
eIr said, 'Tihe Palmetto regime'nt will
foll,,w you,' Brooks said, '.Ay, they will
follow von to death.' With his sword
flashing, leading on his men, this young I
man fell mortally wounded. When he
and his brother-my collenage--left
home, their father took an old family
servant and said to them, 'Take him
along ; he may be of use to you hbere
aft',r.' My colleague, struck down with
sickness, was sent home. lie left this
old servant to, attenli his brother. For
three lays andll nighlts this old negro lay
by the bedisiile of his dying young mas- t
ter. Without cessation, in camp andll
amid the rage of battle, he watched hy h
his side. The ball had pierced him
through. From the perforation of theis
ball cane large splinters of bones.- t
These lie gathered together. His young a
master died, and the regiment, in con- a
sideration of his aittention and fidelity,
bought him a house and lot. The old
negro purchased a wagon for his mas- t
ter, put himn iinto it, and from the city of
Mexico, he carried him to Vera Cruz,
where he put him on board a vessel t
bound for the Uniited States. From the ii
port of arrival lie took him to his mas- p
ter, the father of tihe young man. lie h
said to the old man, gray-headed and
weeping, 'Here sir, are the Ibmnes which
passed from the weind of your dead '
son. IIere,' said he to thile mother, 'is A
the corpse of your son.' (Loud cheers.) .

At the battle of Chunrubusco, immedi
ately after the fall of Hutler, while lead- a
ing his regiment to the charge, DI)ickin
son was shot through the leg. The a
wound was not considered dangerous,
but, debilitated by his previous suffer
ing and chafing at confinement, he final
ly succumbed, and his impatient spirit
.ook its flight amid the roar and crash
if the assault upon Chapultepec. As
Butler died, his eye fixed on the Palmet
to banner borne rsssard where the "blows '
fell thickest and heaviest " so Dickin
on expired at the ioment that the same
lag waved in triumph on the brow of
Dhapultepec. An appropriate close for
the eventful drama of a soldier's life. i
Dickinson, like Butler, was six feet
rour inches in height, straight as an
Indian, and of commanditng presence.- c
Bntler had a clear blue eye, features
:hiseled as,though by the hand of Phi
ias, and altogether a singularly hand
iome face. Dickinson's figure was cast
etween that of Hercules and Apollo.-
He was by profession a lawyer, and had p
won considerable reputation at the bar B
nd in the Legislature. He inherited L
the warm, impulsive temperament of his
rather and the deeper enthasiasm of his
naternal ancestry. In his general char- s
mcter he was more impetuous than pain- a
'taking and persevering.
