LED ASTRAY.—Articles from the press of the leading cities m the United States speak ing in the b'ghest terms of Miss Richmond, who will n>>time the title role in the above play; read them: The title role was sustained by Florence Richmond, of whose acting we cannot speak too highly. She is undoubtedly the finest ac tress we have had the apportunitv of seeing in Richmond for many years. Apparently gentle and unassuming in manner, and hand some in appearance, she is well qualified to act the part.— Richmond Enquirer.

AVaveriy's social event of the season occur red at the Opera House on Tuesday evening last. it being the Fourth Annual Reception of the Tioga Hose company of that place. The Tiogas exerted their utmost endeavors to ex cel in point of elegance and enjoyment all other receptions given by them, and that they succeeded admirably, those who were for tunate enough to attend can bear witness. The spacious parlors of the Tioga hotel, opened directly into the Opera House, which was carpeted with crash, and handsomely fur nished with tinely upholstered sofas, huge mirrors,l marble top tables, and upon the walls hung many oil paintings, presenting the appearance of a modern parlor, in all of its appointments. In front of the stage was placced a novel design of gas jets, gotten up by W. If. .ION*KS, a member of the Co., bear ing the insciption," Tioga," the bright lustre of which produced a beautiful effect upon the merry dancers. The orchestra, composed of i_ r ht pieces, was under the leadership of Mr. HENRI SIT*r.EN. Prof. LAMOREUX officiated as master of ceremonies. Mr. L. It. MAN NING with Miss IIOLHERT led the grand promenade. Supper was served in the Tioga hotel undo the supervision of the Chief Clerk, Col. W APSWOIM it. and was in keeping with the other arrangements. Hon. It. A. ELMER, President, now acting Postmaster General, JAMES MURRAY, JOHN BAILEY, JOHN VAXATTA, JAMES LEMON JOHN KIN NEY and others did the honors of the evening. Through the courteous and gentlemanly at tention of the managers, those from out of town were made to enjov themselves to the fullest extent. We should like to speak of the toilets of the splendidly attired ladies, and give a more complete diseription of one of the finest re- ever given, but our limited space forbids. XMAS AT SAYRK —The (Christinas celebra tion of the Episcopal Sunday School at Sayrc took place Monday afternoon. It was quite a novelty in its way and even more successful than the entertainments of former years. The upper end of the Chapel was magical ly transformed into a large old-fashioned lire piace. in which stood an old time crane and pair of andirons, well blackened by use or art. On the mantle piece above ticked an ancient clock,guarded on both sides by brass candlesticks, ami some mysterious stockings dangled from the corners. Against the brick work, which reached to lie ceiling, hung a gas star, surrounded by a wreath of ever green. The whole formed a most e harming picture to those who entered tlie Church. The exercises were opened by the Rector, Rev. Mr. ROSEXMULLKR. After the singing of Carols in a remarkably hearty way, and the chanting of the Lord's Prayer, the Ver sicles. etc.. tiie school responded to some general catechising. The little girls of Mrs. TIIOM \S' class then recited Scripture texts and repeated a Christinas hymn in concert Tim Infant Class, taught by Mrs. ROSENMUL LKR.and which must number nearly thirty children, of every condition, and ranging in age from three to eight, was then questioned. It was most delightful to hear each little mite stand up and repeat with more or less confidence liis or her small verse. After the recitation of one hymn, and the singing of another, Mr. ROSEXMULLKR announced that Mr. 11. A. PACKER would now read aloud a Ch'Mstmas poem. A silent and attentive au dience listened to the well known lines. '"Twas tho nitflit before Christmas, when all through the house," &c. As the reader proceeded the lights gradually grew dimmer and the suspense greater, until finally, as he described how St. Nick came down "with a bound,.' there was a jingle of sleigh bells, a dash down the chimney, and there stood Santa Clans in person. He was all dressed in furs and carried generous bags from which he filled the stockings, and mak ing frequent trips up tho chimney to his sleigh, brought wonderful things for each child—books for the older ones, tool chests and magic lanterns for the little boys, kitch ens'and stoves and blocks for the little girls, lovely boxes of candy for every one, and fan ov boubonnieres for the teachers. Mr. and Mr-. PACKER, who were strongly sus pected of having been in league with the old gentleman, must have fell repaid for their efforts by the happv faces aud unfeigned de light of the children, who, after a final carol had bi'T n sung, were bundled up and carried off by their elders. The beloved and faithful Rector of the Church, and the accomplished organist, Mrs. THOMAS, as well as the teachers, hav; every reason to congratulate themselves upou their prosperous and well trained school, ALFRED J.
