Perhaps one of the oldest persons in 5. the State died on the 15th of May in the - second ward. her name was Lethia Faulkner, but was generally known as Grana Lethia. She died on the Ath tal erton plantation, where she had been 6. living for the past sixty years or more. Her exact age is not known, but in 1858 when J. W. Keene purchased her with other slaves at a sale in the second ward, she was then considered too old to work, and had not done any work for several years. Col. E. W. Constant considers her at least 115 years old or older. She was taken care of by the the Keene and Constant ., families, and never knew what want was. Up to within a few weeks of death she could thread a needle, do Is. patch work, and took a delight in do ing little things about her home. The old colored woman was tender p ly laid away.

According to our promise last week, we will attempt a slight criticism of the play which was rendered so well by home talent on the night of the 23rd instant. In the selection of the a play good taste was evidenced, for we e. think the audience was well pleased with it; although we agree with them lb that there was not much plot in it. flowever this may be, we wish to speak )o of the merits of the actors and not of 'y the merits or demerits of the play itself. 15 "John Van Buren," the Rector of ' St. Mildred's, was well taken by Mr. C. ut F. Davis. Mr. Davis' natural dignity stood by him faithfully in the charac ter of the divine; and he rendered the to different passages abounding with 0- pathos with becoming earnestness and emotion. r- "Ann Cruger" was personified ex cellently by Miss Mary Montgomery. Although unugll at the time, Miss Mary upheld her reputation-apd as II sumed a role not as much suited to her as comedy. rhe closing scene of n the first act with little Cain was well is worth the compliments she received. "Dick Van Buren," the wall street banker, and brother of the Rector, was taken by Mr. Suzett Maguire. s' The part of a genteel villain is often a a" difficult one to take, but Mr. Maguire W impersonated the scheming stock broker very creditably ; and so natu re rally were;the thoughts of speculation depicted on his face, that one could see ý., the greed for gain there "oven in his is mother's arms." e. "Phyllis Lee," his sweetheart, whom e, he had cruelly neglected, was taken by s. Miss Carrie Hall. The young lady's d natural looks, with her composed t. features and sweet expression, made as it seem gp f that particular part was written expressly for her; for we do not believe that "Phyllis Lee" has ever 'r been taken by any young lady better e suited to the part than Miss Carrie. e in point of merit, she did not fall short 6' of the role she assumed. d And "Poor Judge Knox !" Would Y any one ever have known him? The e victim of a joke and the laughing stock of all! But he come out on top e and at last found the charming Mrs. De Peyster to be without a flaw. "Judge Knox" well sustained his well h established reputation. Ile was never better. And there was "Mrs. De ,f Peyster," who "dabbled in stocks," played by Miss Annie Hous. Miss Aunnie had a very accurate conception of her part, for her tone, gestures and - general attitude on the stage indicated o that she was perfectly at home. The s pain depicted on her face during the i "sprained ankle" scene was. worth the admnission price. "Alec Robinson," with "no dances to spare and less money," was taken by e Mr. Sami Kennedy. As Mr. K. is t I naturally a sort of "Smart Alec" with t less money and less sense than "Mr. Robinson" himself, we will pass him by; but for lull particulars of his act- t I ing, go to the Bauner-Democrat's "pro I tem." º Now comes "Bass Van Buren," the j charming, bright-eyed soubrette, "tired I of dolls and ready for beaux." t. 1 fact, Miss Ella Rous, in this character, looked just like a young miss just verg ing into the romantic age of love and sentlimentality, when every bird whis pers of love and.every zephyr breathes its witcheries into her listening ear. The commenlatiou of the public well expresses the opinlons of the B.-D. as I to Miss Ella's sacting. lHer love passa- F ges with "Alee" were very laughable. Both Mr. Deeson and Mr. Brock, as i "Cruger" and "Creighton" rendered their parts very creditably. For be- ' ginners, they did well. Mr. Deeson's laugh was immneuse. Mr. Brock, as the waiter, was good. "Botts," the organist, looked as if he had been playing the organ u;for fifty ii years sure enough, so good was his a make op. For fear no one will ever hear him play another anthem here, we recommend Mr. T. S. Delony to anyB church'tn the oountry that might be T in need O~og organist.

Wo want to tell you tbis week some 9 thing about a "*home," a house with >d premises that you may call your *on, i- even it it be but a hut, r'Thatdear hut, our home."as says the poet. In speak ing of a home. one would fain indulge in a bit of poetry for i ""Be it ever so humble, there is no place ltke home." We know little about poets, our ,f minds do not run that way, but we in know something about a homae, and, f besides, common sense tells us that ý every man or woman with a sparkle of ; ambition in his soul. dbould possess a ic home and should enjoy solid comfort d "under hisavine and fig-tree," as says i the Bible. te When you live hi a recited house, ,. naturally you do not feel like improv .d ing somebody else's property, and is hence the broken panes of glass in your windows, the pickets missing in your c fence, and sometimes even your front L5 gate off the hinges; you do not feel like repairing it, simply because it be longs to someobody else. But if it was your home,' everything about your e premises would be in apple-pie order, Y for occasionally you have spare time, and instead of spending it loafing d about town as you do now, you would stay at home improving your property. Now, all of you who have not got a "r home and look with terror to the d monthly visits of the landlord, who g never lets the first day of the month go e without colleoting his rent from you, n think how comfortable it would be to have your own home, and make up f your mind to have one. *"Where there is a will, there is a 1 way;" only have the will, and we will show you the way. Come and see us, and we can tell you how to get a i home. and pay for it, if only you have t the mind to do it. d Every day we are settling good citi e zens in the New Providence, and we have yet room for you. t THE LAVINS' LECTURES AND - TEREOPTIOON VIEWS AT THE OPERA HOUSB. e - I Mr. J. S. G. uenard. the efficient P manager of the Opera House succeed ed this week in perfecting arrange - ments to secure the Ste.eopticon Lec l tures of the celebrated John Lavios, for three nights at the Opera house, on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, Ithe.11th, 12th, 18th inst Mr. Lavins s has the reputation of being a flue lec turer; he has visited most of the south ern cities and was greatly applauded for the grand and vivid descriptions of the contries that he speaks about. Ills lectures are illustrated by one of the finest Stereopticons that e: er came South, each picture being over 18 feet tin diameter and standing in bold relief on the canvass. One evening at the lectures is said to be as good as a two mornth's trip through the country that he speaks on. Mr. Lavins Las upwards of 800 pictures, and during his stay in Providence, he will give three lectures with corresponding views. The first night will be, of course, devoted to our continent, that we know so little about, taking in the principal cities of the United States, and the superb creations of Nature that distinguish our country above all others, the Valley of the Yellow Stone, the Mammoth Cave, the Yosemite Valley, etc., etc., with finue Stercopti cou illustrations. The second night will be devoted to the British Isles, England, Ireland and Scotland, leaving New York by steam er and lauding at Queenstowa, all. of course, with illustrations of the 'auld sod.'" The third nighl, Lecturer Lavins will take his audience to La Belle France, Italy, Switzerland, Germany, etc.,describing fully and illustrating beautifully the principal cities of these countries. Mr. Guenard interviewed the IRev. C. Mahe who has beard one of the lectures and seen the views illustrating it, and the Rev.gentleman assured him that the Lecture that he heard was flue and brought back vividly to his mind and to his eight many cities that he has seen in Europe. lie says LRavins is good.
