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.

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
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
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
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

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.

his stay in Providence, he will give
three lectures with corresponding
views. The first night will be, of
