The oldest and most eccentric circum
stance that evei came to our knov ledge
occurred last Saturday. Mr. Foster, the
manager of the Theatrical Company, then
phuing at Concert Hall, wnssi'iingin the
bote, ruminating, in all probability, -upon
the full house he was t" Lave that even
ing, rhen a stranger entered the room,
i:h a bill for tha evening's . performance
j l i his hand.
"Are you the manrger of the Theater?"
quoth ihe stranger. -( . ..
I am sir replied Mr. Foster.
You are to play ... .Richard III, to
night? ' .
I am, and always havo.bectn extremely
fond of theatricals, but naver had an op
porlurity of seeing ltichard III.' , : ! :
...-'Unfortunatelr, I leave jo.vn .this
evening on the G-4G train. Now, bow
much money would induce your compa
ny to play Richard III for me this after
noon?' Foster thinking the stranger was j 'king,
replied he would do it for twenly-five dol
lars. The stranger looked at the bill
again, and inquired what would be the ex
tra charge for the Hough Diamond? To
carry out the joke, Fos er, replied ten dol
lars, and handing it to him remarked that,
he would like to have the play to com
mence not later than two o'clock.
Foster got the company toeth.r, and
related tin circumstance. The i lea, of
playing Richard III to Jin audierce of one.
was so excessively ludicrous, atd so p.?w

A. ToucniNO. Anecdote. Hon A. II.
Stephens, of Georgia, in a recent address at
a meeting in Alexandria, for. tho b?neflt of
tlie orphan Asylum r.nd Free Schools of

A poor little boy, in a cold night in June,
tili no home or roof to sheler his head, no
parental or materual guardian or guide to
protect or direct him on his way, reached
at nightfall the house of a rich planter, who
look him in, fed, lo3ged, and sent him on
his way vith his blessing. The kind at
ten'i'ins cheered his heart, and inspire him
with fresh courage to battle vhb tho obsta
cles of life Years rolled round; Piovi
dencc led him on; he had reached the legal
profession; his host had died; the cormo
rants lhat prey on tho substance of man
had formed a conspiracy to get -from the
widov her estates. . She sent for the near
est counsel to commit her.causo to h:m,
and lhat counsel proved to be the. orphan
boy years before welcomed and entertained
by her deceased husband.. The stimulus
of a warm and tenacious gratitude was now
added to the ordinary motives connected
wilh the profession. 115 .undertook her
cause vith a will not easily to . be rested,
' - ' ; ä- - . -- t
lo gained it; the vidov's estates were
secured to her in perpetuity; and Mr.
Stephens added with emphasii of emoiion
that sent its e'eetiio thrill throughout the
house, "that orphan boy stands before you!"
