Richmond, Va., December 2, 1S04. To the
Editor of the Dispatch: In the Now York Daily
Tribune of November 2(i appear two or throe
columns, containing what purports to ho the
account of what one Kdmnnd K irke, alias J. II. Gil
moro, saw, and said, and did on the ocemlon of
his recent visit to the military prisons in this city.
A portion of this account appeared in the Dispatch
of the .'lOtli ult. The statement is not only tilled
with fakelioodti of the grossest character, which
must be apparent to every reader, but In every
Cwtienlur, save the single one of his being at the
ibby, is utterly without foundation. Tho whole
tory is a lie, and as well, if not better known to
be such by "hirke" than anybody elso.
I bave conferred witli Judge Uuld on the sub
ject, and he joins me in stigmatizing it as a shame
less publication. Th. V. Truman,
Major Commanding Military Prisons.
Captured Kebel Ofllcerft;
The following Rebel olllcors, who were cap
tnred on the 1st instant by Oeneral Gregg, in bis
cavalry raid, arrived here this morning from the
Army of the Potomac, and were committed to the
Did Capitol: Major Nonnan Fit.uiiRh, of Gen.
Hamilton's stall; Capt. David Waldneimer, of
Jolf. i)av s Legion ; Lieut. J. E. Way, do. ; Lieut.
J. A. Connolly, lid Alabama Cav. ; Lieut. H.
Craig, 4th Bouth Carolina Cav. ; Lieut. S. K. Fos

.Major Fitzhugu has been recognized as an
ofllcer who, some time since, compelled one of
our captured cavalry otllcers to take off his boots,
and then took possession of them himself. Tho
Union ofllcer was marched off as a prisoner of
war, while Major Fitzhugh sported his boots.
Americans ih the Rf.lknt Japan Fioht.
The Knglish papers coulain accounts of the re
cent naval action in Japan, resulting in the open
ing of the Straits of Bhnonoseki to the trade of
tbe world. In addition to tbe British., Y reach
and Dutch vessels, tho United Status chartered
steam vessel Takiang, witb an officer, a party of
men, and a gun or tne united htatos corvette
Jatfiestmrn, took part in tbe engagement. The
Jinii ish V ice-Admiral Jiuper. la ills oilicmi re
port, thanks Lieutenant Pearson, of the United
Mates Wavy, for tho readiness with which bo
carried ont his wishes on all occasions, and for
tbe efficient assistance rendered by the vessul
under his command.
New Chehni'T Stkket Tiieathe. Jessie
Srotcn seems most peculiarly fitted to the times. Its
Military1, character; its story of distress, caused
by rebellion, and tbe fortunes of war, at this
time, here Vn our country, most especially, enlist
our sympathies. Mr. Sinn has done everything
possible for the scenic effects and tho stage ap
pointments. The scone of the City of Lncknow,
by night, is the most artistic picture, and we espe
cially draw attention to this scene, which ii
painted not like a scene, but a picture.
The IUdan givei a very good idea of a fortifi
cation. Tho whole of this last scene is admir
ably gronped and arranged. "Jessie brown" was
esteemed the best part of the actress for whom
it was written, Miss Ai-'nes Robertson an actress
whose rimgo of character was limited, but who
was, in all she did within thoso limits, unrival
led. Miss Uermon, still persevering in tho
steadiness and earnestness she liuslately adopted,
has given us a "Jessie brown" as, enormia j and
as rtlective as the original. 1
Even in person she boro a striking resemblance
to Agues Uodertsou ; like Ja r, stiu had taken a
true conception of this character, at once power
ful, poeiie, and simple. In one scene only did
we think her not equal to Iht predecessor that
is in tbe love s 'ene with "Geonlie;" but In the
last act MUs Germou surpaiscd Agues Kobcri
son, displuming more i(;, muro inspiration,
not artistic but bc.irtieit; for the audience, as
"Jissie" listened for the lo(Mn, listened with her,
watching her every look aft movement as though
their late, too, ha I been renting im the sound of
the pibroch. Wo have ran 1 -ecu a public so
inn rested and excited. .
Miss Uermon's accent is suil'n'i.iit for thu stage,
though not as true as that of A;;ncs. bbu sings
Iter snatches of Scutch melody very prettily.
Id in Vaughn was ino-t pilu live lu the torclblo
portions of her part. We have still to repro ich
Ler with a eniclesso ss in ber dress ; ber muslin
sown was oth, mid her red ribbon tumbled and
soiled. Little Katie Halter is a geuius already,
and beautiful as a dream. 1
The other little child, Ux, seeme4 fully im
pressed with ttsiiiiportaiiee. Mr. Muni luutgave
us a trut soldier ( not a sune soldier ) in 'MUudall,"
full of liruiin a, discipline, courage, and tender-ne-s.
MrMiirdoch was a little out of his line in
'Geordie; ' bis lienring was excessivelf uumili
taiy ; deculedlv, he hm no voca'ioii for ibe senti
mental or i S'lu tie; tii, his "Geordle" was gen
tlemanly and relincd, if not very well ilrinrd.
Mr. Chapman has a lino part, which he muddled
op, taking most of the poinu from it, ond not
knowing the words. Mr. Ward, as "Svveenle,"
liud little 10 do, which was to be resretiml. Mr.
F.. T. (Sinclair was a common and commonplace
Mr. Higgins, whoso first appearanee.it nu
winds a favorable impression, but the memory of
tne -ptana nauiu oi nom it auit was a potent
uti Kivvertome. t, uc uuer repose 01 iaua-
rer, flat Implied not gentleness but rnthlesg
0 termination, and the grace of manner, the in
tense passion, all formed one of tho finest pir
traitures on tho stipe. Knhanccd by the most
splendid and real dress Jewels and cashmeres
Poiiclcfltili'i "Nana" ran never be forgotten.
Then, as a whole, the play was most successful.
It is wonderfully exciting, and the interest in so
gradually wound np to a culmination as to lie
positively fearful, bo that ut liuit the Highlanders
bad the whole audience charging with them.
This last set nc Is grandly managed. The drama
is sure to de popu ar. 1 .e afterpiece on tho oc
casion was the favoriie comedietta of f, ri
.W'foiiVr, in which Mr. Walter Leuiioxbippcaicd
bs ",,i,cs strop, " and made a decided hit. IDs
humor was really tint t; its and i.r!int, while
liis appreciation and evoresvion of the h m mt.,
and admirable acting, were tbe sudjeiU of gene
ral notice. .
Wai m t Kiiiki;t Tmeatiik. Miss Lucille
Western plays " (iamea," for the third time, to
night. John Tl. fioron. This wonderful speaker de
livers bis great lecture on "Peculiar People," In
Concert Hall, to-morrow evening. On Friday
cvinh'g, In the same plate, bo lectures on "Tem
perance," the theme upon which ho made his
great n pnintlon. Those of our reader who wish
to henr Mr. Gough should lose no time in secur
ing their seats lit Mar'ien's, No. coil Clic-niut
Hreet. Thee will tie the only lectures of Mr.
Uoiifh in this city during the season.
rFHKLti's Orv.nA. The long mirrors of tho
Assembly Iloom, in Tenth street, reflected none
but the most aristocratic faces; some very young
and pretty; some merely aristocratic. Tho dresi
tn as commanded "evening," for tho most
part that is, a highly and elaborately orna
uicnttd bead, a spotless opera cloak, white gloves,
and a dress of no particular color, style, or rich
ness; tbe strength of the dross lying in the head,
gloves, and cloak. Bonnets there were, but Bilk
iionneui: tney had no right to tho name. Tot
iievond nil doubt tho graceful ronnd hats would
lave eschewed nil parentage with thorn. Very
little fronts, no capos, no crowns, but a profusion
of flowers, laco and ribbons, etc. etc. Anvthinr
from a dec to a barleycorn suits a bonnet. Well,
this audience, being in a flutter of excitement,
all excepting those with operatic talent them
selves, who bail a courteous, patient air, evi
dently prepared to patronize, all waited the signal
irum iuu urcjicsiru.
A very good one it was. too. when it came, ami
at length, after thin introduction to tbe opera, tbe
c urtain ro.-e and Mr. W t r n, the tenor, stood
before us. His costumo was good, and from tho
first notes two things were evident one, that he
knew how to sing, the other, that he fully appre
ciated tho novel position he was in. He gave us
tho part of "Kiccardo" with groat energy and
skill, and his line voice did much to help him.
Tbe pope, Miss 1) i has but little to do, but
gave e Ultncei of talent.
Miss 11 ut ts was excessively timid on her
first appearance, but soon recoverod herself, and
displayed great finish of style, evidences of foul
ing, dramatic power, and easy execution. Her
Voice is a high mezzo soprano, with somo mag
nilieent contralto notes. Of the whole company,
Mr. Durand was the most artistic, possessing tho
true ituliun style, a hue sympathetic voice, and
an excellent method. Tito whole was a
complete success, and a most satisfactory
initiation ot tne scries. l'erclli, sur
rounded and congratulated, may have felt
tbnt be Lad achieved wonders for our unartistic
American natures (for we bave not reached, as a
nation, the ease and idleness that leave time for
art), and that he kad created here in this city a
musical school. Tbe long intervening intervals
between the acts were the only drawbacks. The
construction of the room preventing circulation.
so as to permit ot visits, made too sittings tedious.
The orchestra, excellent as it was, was a little
iouu tor mo singers.
Ot n Svrn.Y of Gas. The increasing growth
of our city Is taxing onr gasworks to their utmost
capacity. Tbe capacity of the works at tho pro
sent time is said to be barely suilicient to supply
the demands mado upon them, and unless some
new steps are taken by our Ciiy Fathers it may
be found impossible to meet future wants. In
lbGO there were 6;it),t)00,(XK) cubic feet manufac
tured. In 1HC1 the quantity of feet fell off about
li,ulO,(lfH) feet, but in Wi it went up to 66(,9S7,O00
cubic feet, and in lbliil to 735,000,000 cubic feet.
But tbe applicants for gas indicate a fulling off
siuce lwil. In that year thcro woro 11,100 appli
cants, while In VM2 there were only ;i"iU7, ami in
1SG3, 9.161. Tho rejiort of tbe Trustees for ISli i
may give the explanation for this decrease, as it
is llieie stated that "tho number of consum es
has become as largo ns can bo with certuinty
supplied from tbe works in their prosent extont;
and it will be necessary cither to censo Uking
additional customers or to adopt immediate mea
sures to provide for extending the works," &n.
As compared with DOO, when there were IlrJU
applicants, the increase in IStiJ was very decided.

ti'Uk. This morning a meeting of the Society
for the Promotion of Agriculture was held at their
new rooms, No. 102 Walnut Btrect. Mr. John
McGowan presented to tho Society a niimbur of
line specimens of carrots raited on his farm, near
These carrots arc of unusual size, some of them
weighing from three to livo pounds. They wore
cultivated in the ordinary way, about six hundred
bushels to tho acre. Tho present olllcors of the
Society were placed In nomination for re-eloc-tion.
A steam plough was exhibited, alter which
the Society adjourned.
IUmahkaiilk Akkial Ascension. Professor
Lowe yesterday made one of the most rciuafkable
ascension on record. Ho ascended' from tho
inclosure fifteenth and Contes street, about 2
o'clock, in compujiy lib some friends, and after
a delightful aerial trip of about one hour's dura

remained where they Ininlfd, until dark. The

known fatt that our Pianos have for many years main
tained their hlKh reputation, notwithstanding the powerful
Competition of the EasU'm makers.

as th only Pianos in the country; yet at the sn me time
thine came agents very seldom eontltnie to sell any one

that they are In he ri or, and tbuy are compelled to take
