\l3 WARD.—On the loth of March next a
Draft has-been ordeied' by the Government. By
thai.time the Amendment of the Conscription Act
■will have p'aced nil able-bodied as.
well as single, under forty-five years of age, in
the same class Not less than five hundred of
such mtn will be required from the Eighth Ward.
All can fee the importance of preventing this,
and all tbe impossibility of doing it without yoar
. vigorous eo-opejation.
It can easily be accomplished. Volunteers are
abunrant.bnt to pay the promised bounties, money
is required. About g»15,-(X)0 have been collected—at
least as large a sum is # jet to be raised. The con
tributions have bren comparatively few. andprin
eipally by those (including anumber of ladies) not
themselves liable to draft. •
Our "Ward reaches from Seventh street to the
: Schuyllcill River, and from Sprdce to Chestnut,
and contains about twenty-thousand, inhabi'auts.
1 hese twenty thousand are alike interested, poor
and rich, married aDd siigle,.man and woman.
Mere boasts of loyalty, or denunciations of those
opposing the Government, will not avail. Self
interest, if not patriotism, requires immediate
action. In so short a time as yet remains, it will
be imrossible for the Committee to visit all. Do
not, therefore,-wait to be called upon. Send or
bring your subscriptions, large or small, without
a moment’s delay, to either of the Committee.
Small contributions, if numerous, will helu mike
up the amount. Three thousand subscriptions of
#5 each would do it entirely. If checks are given,
they may be drawn to the order of the Treasurer,
Judge Strong, of tbe Supreme Court.

The Geeuah Opeba.—The openiug perform
ance of the Germans at the Academy of Music last
evening, attracted a large and elegant audience
Nicolai’s opera, 21te Merry Wives o/‘ }VindsGr t was
admirably 'performed—much better than it was
last year. The advantage of having a first class
basso and a first class tenor was manite&U Herr
Herrmanns, who played “Falstaff,” is much the
finest basso that the German company has ever
given us. He sang excellently well, and looked
and acted the iat knight to perfection Habelmaan
sang deliciously in the role of “Fenton;” while
Steinecke, as “Mr. Fluth” (the “Ford” of
bbakspeare,) was admirable in ail respects.
Mines. Johannten Fredcrici were both
good as the jnerry wives; and Mile. ' Ca
nissa as “Sweet Ann Page,” did better
than ste has done in other operas. The audience
seemed to enjoy the performance from beginning io
encDgfad although the opera can never be regarded
as work, it will always please when done
as well as it was last night. To-morrow evening
Boieldieu’s greatest work, Lit Dame Blanche, will
be performed. This opera has not been heard in
Philadelphia for somoitbirty years. Bnt it is a
never-failing attraction in the theatres of France
and Germany. Last season it was played for the
thousandth time at the Opera Comique of Parts, for
which theatre it was written. No other opera, we
bt-lieve, has ever been performed so many times at
one theatre. The full strength of the German
company .-will be brought out for it to-morrow
Tbe'Aeck.—Last evening “Little Fadette: Or,
tbe Cricket.” was produced at the Arch, Miss
Charlotte Thoiupsui enacting Faucbon, the
Cricket, Messrs. Hill and Rcbsjn taking tbe parts
of tbe twinp, Landry and Ilidier Barbeand: Grif
ilthß Sppeariig as Father Barbeand; Miss. Carr as
Old Fadette: Mies Price as Madelon, and Miss
Morse as Mother P.arbeaud. The acting by all
these fine artists was excellent, and the play
passed off in really superb siyle. The s enery
was equal to the finest iefforts or this kind ever
made at the and elicited hearty applause.
The shadow dance was charmingly given by Miss
Thompson, while tbe dance around tbe maypole
with the twisting and untwisting of the parli’-
colored ribbons, was one of tbe most capital things
we ever enjoyed. < "We could point out the excel
lencies of all tne artists tin the cast, bu t content
ourselves' with saying that all did well and all
seemed to meet the fullest and heartiest applause
from the entire audience. After • ‘Little Fadette, ’ ’
the orchestra executed a capital military melody,
and the entertainment closed withrthe farce of -‘A
Regular Fix,” in which Bob. on elicited even
louder laughter than be had done in the former
piece. This evening “Little Fadette” will be re
The Moncis Minstrels Last evening a
large, intelligent and fashionable audience at
tended the opening enteriainment by the Morris
Minstrels, at Concert Hall. The tronpe comprises
over twenty excellent artists, and the programme
they presented was one of the freshest and most
charming we have enjoyed at snch an entertain
ment for a longtime. Their ballads were exqui
site and their burlesques, like the “Old Folks,”
convulsed the house with laughter. This evening
they offer new songs, new dances, new burlesques
and comicalities of the most amusing kind. .
The Temple or Wondebb The public inter
est in the performances of Signor Blitz at the
Temple of Wonders, comer of Tenth and Che3t
nut streets, never slackens. The reason is simple
and obvious. It is because the merry'Signor
keeps up a constant round ot novelties, and his
art, magic and fun! are as diversified as they are
wonderful. He performs nightly and upon every
Wednesday and Saturday afternoon. - y

A TRAGEDY IN NEW YORK.
THREE PERSONS STABBED—ARREST OF
[From the N. Y. Times of to-day.l
At the close of last fall Mr, Luiherc. Tibbetts
gained considerable notoriety for himself by
making very heavy speculative purchases of
Mixed Western Corn, at extraordinary high
prices, - the com deliverable in the first
ten days of the current month
of ..February, He had subsequently
some difficulty "with his bankeis, because oi what
lie called the defamatory representations of certain
rivals in busihess. He managed, however, to
work through this difficulty, and determined to
gain control of the available supply of coru
here, so as to render it next to impossible for those
who had sold to him, to nil their contracts unless
on such terms as would suithis interest or -conve
nience. On Friday'last, at about noon, he made'
his appearance on ’Change and'* commenced
buying ■ briskly, until he had
purchased twenty-three loads at prices varying
irpm 1 33al 40, agreeing to pay 3c. per bushel cash
oh that day, and the balance of the purchase
money within ten days. He also sold u single
load at 81 26, cash. About one o’clock, P. M.,
he grew very much excited, having been greatly
annoyed by some unknown-parties, who had been
pelting him with lumps of dongh and quantities ot
grain, also by the persistency of a merchant, who
had been offering a load of corn at SI 40, but with
whom be had repeatedly declined to have any
direct business transaction. He began to talk
loudly about combinations which had been
organized to crush him, about his fidelity
to principle; his determination to
fight out the battle of principle, even it it cost
him his life; his enemies might take his corn and.
his money, but he would maintain his character,
which he prized asove ev<ryihing else. Efforts
were made to reason with him, 3 but these efforts
only increased his nervousness and mental
excitement. He appealed to his God for pro
tection, and refused to be pacified or reasoned
'with, 'warning hll parties to avoid iutoxfering
with him or las- rights. At this time the excite
ment on the floor was intense, and business was
totally suspended. Shouts of “Put Him
out* ’ were heard on all sides; he defied any one to
put him out; he was fighting for principles and he
would not .be-put dqjvn. Two merchaats then
took hold of him; drewghuu to the stairway, aqd
down the stairway to the street, whence he started
by himself for his office.
On Saturday, he was suspended and denied the
privileges of the floor of 1 Change by a formal vote
ol ihe Directory ot the New York Commercial As
sociation, because oibis turbulent conduct.
Yesterday, a few'minutes before noon, be made
liis appearance at the Produce Exchange, holding
in his hands some boxe» of grain, and, as \va? af
terward proven, a couple of packages of Hobson
A Sens’ dirk knives, known to the trade as the
.“Southern knife.” He ascended the stairway,
evidently prepared Jo force his way in on the
floor in defiance of the sentence of suspension
adopted by the Board of Directors of the Associa
tion. On the landing at the* head of the first
flight of stairs, be was met by Mr. Vanderbilt,
the janitor, who informed him that he
could not go up any further. He made
«t v< ry surly response, and gave positive evidence
of his determinalion to fight his way tip, by cast*
ing aside his boxes of corn and an unbroken quar
ter dozen packages of dirk-knives. Mr. Vander
bilt seized hold of him to prevent him front-resort
ing to violence, but Tibbetts quickly released
himself, and brandishing ar. open dirk-knife, ran
r pidly up the second llight o; steps to the main
floor, the.crowd at the head of the e tair way-scat
tering in ail directions before him, the majority
keeping on the run until they had got sately out
of tpe building; Once on the floor, he made di
rectly for one of the grain tables, and jump
ing thereupon, ' commerced a violent ha
rangue, holding his knife aloftin the most threat
ening manner and dancing wildly about on the
table. He yelled out frantically that • ‘he was now
mcnaich-of all be surveyed; In indisputable con
trol of that department oi business,” ready to kill
any of bis enemies and shed his own blood, and
sacrifice his life in maintenance of his position.
His enemies, he exclaimed, had robbed him of
his money, of his corn, of his character. They
might now take his h e, but he would die fight
ing in his own defence; if he fell, he would
.be avtnged. He kicked off the table nearly
two scores of sample-boxes full of grain, and for a
few minut» s manoeuvred like an Indian in a war
dance. Soon a policeman (Officer Bestmer) made
his appearance, and aided bv the janitor and a few
merchants, tried to knock Tibbetts eff the table.
The janitor finally upset him, and a struggle then
ensued between Tibbetts and the policeman. He
stabbed ihe policeman three or lour times, once
seriously' in the small of the back. The policeman
struck him with his club over the forehead, cut
ting into the flesh. This fight lasted only a mo
ment, when Tibbetts was overpowered and
thrown to the floor again. A merchant jumped
on the arm with which he held the
dirk-kmfp, but Tibbetts managed to stab him in
the toes of the right foot, wounding him slightly.
Several other policemen now arrived, hammered
Tibbets toughly, and finally disabled him so as to
oe enabled to take him into custody. He was then
removed to tho First Precinct Station wberi
charges were made against him by the Directory #f
the Commercial Association and the palicemw
•whom he had so repeatedly stabbed. ~-
In the ecu file with Mr. Vanderbilt, the janitor,
in the beginning of the melet, Tibbetts made a des
perate effort to stab the janitor. One© the knife
grazed his right hand, inflicting a slight wound on
the forefinger of the hand; during another attempt,
tbe point of the dirk-knife pag ed through*the left
breast ofthe coat, struckthe watch in Mr. Vander
.bilti* vest pocket, and, glancing off this, cut
through the vest and completely severed a sus
pender, but fortunately did no further damage.
The unbroken rackage of dirk-knives, which
Tlbbetts threw away as ho was ascending the stairs
of the Produce Exchange, was taken possession, of
Mr Bourton, the Clerk of the Exchange.
when Tibbetts was brought to the station house,
he was ashed by Sergeant Matthew the ordinary
questions, and to that as to his age. responded
that be was “the same age as Oliver Cromwell
vas when be commenced his career.” He ex
pressed no regret for his act, bnt alleged be would
do It again, and wished he had another opportu
nity. Sergeant Matthew locked him up.
At 2 P. M , Sergeant Townsend, then in com
mand. concluded, as the'station-house was being
overrun with the prisoner’s iriends and others, to
sen d him to the Tombs. He was accordingly taken
there and arraigned before Justice Howling, at a
late hour. After a preliminary examination he
wa» committed to await tbe result of the Injuries
he has inflicted on the officer. Tibbetts is reputed
to he a man of wealth. Hisfamily. awifeandsix
children, reside at Halls Village, Conn.

—The army having returned to its old quarters, it
is not improper to say that it not only went out in

shot y esterday noon at Fairfax,in accordance with
tn® sentence of a drum-head court-martial.
Thirty-nine prisoners, captured in the- recent
movement acrots the Bapidan, were sent to Wash
The advance of the late crossing at MortoiPs
ford was made by one hundred men of the lactli
New York Volunteers, under Lieutenant-Oolonel
Biurd. and the 391 h New York (Garibaldi Guard).
Uren Hays, division commander, forded the river
accompanied by Gen. Owen, brigade com
mander. The crossing was effected by fording waist
deep, under the cheering oxcitement of picket firing
but about twenty, five
of the rrtels, including three officers, flanked by
our lapidiy moving forces, surrendered and were
gent across the .river. Our skirmishers steadily
aovanced and gallantly forced the rebel skirmish
line hack to the protection of their works. Our
position, theUne constantly Traveling as if swayed
forward and backward, delivering and receiving: a
*it a T7 ? nd Killing fire, was maintained until dark.
At that period two regiments came np to their
anpnort, shortly after which Col. JSaird renorted
® en : that the fifty.five rounds of ammn
nition had been exhausted by his ‘command. He
was then ordered to withdraw his skirmishersto
the rear of the line of battle. About ten o’clock
the entire command recrossed the Bapidan.
Colonel Baird was highly complimented by his
superior officers for the gallant, manner in which
he handled the skirmish line.
loßsof the 126th was about twenty five.
Corporar Chestnut, of Company C, was killed,
two others died from wounds, and three or four
more are mortally wounded. The regiment having
been divided, Colonel Bull, commanding the left
wing of the 120th) deployed other troops in

upon nearly all the roads iu the city. Although
the care arc msde to seal twelve persons, yet they
are never »‘full, ’ ! and even if the inside is crowd
ed aud the platforms well occupied, there is still
* ‘room for one more, ’’and the car must be stopped
for every person who hails it. This overcrowding
of tbe cars is cot only an annoyance to the public
but It gives pickpockets a splendid opportunity to
carry on their operations T and thelosingof pocket
books in passenger railway cars is of frequent oc
currence. Wc do not complain of railway com
panies when persons will persist in crowding into
the cars when they havreto be con tent with standing
room only, for that is ihe accident of the hour,
but the deliberate overcrowding is what is
reprehensible. It is a common occurrence
with conductors on certain lines to stop
their already over-crowded cars at certain street
corners, aud demin the impatient passengers
while they endeavor to persuade in new victims
to their voracity for lares. There are certain line*
which follow this system to such an extent that
we have fccowu of citizens walking several squares
out cl their way in order to gel upon lines where
this abominable packing system is not practised.
Many of the car* have signs. with tbe idscrip
tion, “Passengers are forbidden from stauding
upon the plattqrra” above them, vet there i
scarcely an hour in tbe day in which a car with
both platforms lilled cauuot bo seen. )t in time
tkatthe 'authorities had taken some action in this
matter, as it has been complained of timeard
again. j-u the New York Legislature a bill upon
the subject has Tn?en introduced. It provides “that
all city railroad companies shall provide such ac
commodation? as will each passenger a
seat, and hail not take into a cor any grt?ax-»r
number of passengers than can be seated therein,
under n penalty cf twenty-ilve dollars ” If an
ordinan* c of a similar character was passed by onr
City Councils we have no doubt that it would
meet with the general approval of those who use
the passenger railway cars.

Fifty-first Pennsylvania Volunteers.—
This regiment, which has re-enlisted for the war,
is expected to arrive at Norristown to-day, aud
will meet with a glorious reception. The mem
bers of the slst have probably been in more battles
than any other regiment m the United States.
They were with General Bnrnside in the North
-Carolina campaign, participating in the battles of
Roanoke Island, Newbern and Camden; with
General Pope in the Virginia campaign, and par
ticipated in the battles of Manassas Gap, Chan
tilly, and some eight minor engagements,* with
General McClellan in the campaign.
At the battle of South Mountain, their former bri
gade commander and at that time in command of
the 9th army corps, General Reno, -was killed
while directing their movements. At Antietam
they, m connection with the ,slst Now York,
charged the celebrated Btone bridge, ’in which
they lost, in a few moments, nearly two hundred
men- They were with General Bnrnside at Fre
dericksburg, and charged up to the stone waU,
losing heavily. After the latter battle they were
sent to Newport News, from thence to Kentucky.
When General Grant moved towards Vickshnrg,
they were sent to his aid. After tho fall or Vicks
burg, they were sent, under tne command of Gen.
Sherman, to Jackson. They were one of the three
regiments that first entered Jackson. The Missis
sippi campaign being over, they wore sent back to
Kentucky, and under General Burnside went to
East Tennessee. They participated in all the
battle* around Knoxville, and'acted a conspicu
ous part. ,

THE PENALTY OF TREASON.
The Fayettville Observer gives the following
record of service in the rebel army by the
students of the' University at Chapel TTiiT
“Of the Senior Class of S 4, at the com--
mencement in 1860, one-seventh are known to
have fallen in battle. Of eight of that class
who received the first distinction four are in
their graves, a fifth is a wounded prisoner, and
we believe the others are- in the army.
Of the Freshman Class of that year, 80
in number, only one of them remained to
graduate, and he had been in the
army and been discharged on account of
impaired health. Of the Faculty in ISSO, con
sisting of fourteen members, no ono of whom
was liable to conscription, five volunteered, one .
of whom fell at Gettysburg; another is a pri- ■
sor.er; another was severely wounded at Bris
toc, and a fourth has returned from a loDg im
prisonment with a ruined constitution. Of the
nine remainingimemhers of the Faculty, eight
are clergymen or laymen, beyond the age; of
conscription. Every son of every one of thepa
of the requisite age, eightvin all, has entered
the service as a volunteer. Two of the eight"
have been mortally wounded.
A Lady Fine} sor. Giving a False Char
acter to a Servant, —A case interesting to.
lady housekeepers came before an English po
lice court recently. The facts, as gleaned from
the journals of the day, are as follows: Jana
Howard, a lady residing at Taunton, was
charged at the Marylebone police court with
having given a false character to one Anno
Wingate, a person offering herself to be hired
as a servant to-Mr. John Boldero, contrary to
the statute. Miss Howard is a lady of great
respectability, residing in Taunton with her
brother, who has a large farm there. Ann
Wingate left Taunton, and from her Miss
Howard received the following letter: “Miss
Howard—l hope yon will not think lam taking
a liberty when I ask yon for a great favour.
I am married, and my husband is going to
Dublin for two years, and I shall have to
remain in London, and must. got another
situation. I have tried to get one, but I. am
always objected to on account of my being
married. I shall ba thankful if you will givo
me a twelvemonth’s good character. 1 shall
always think kindiy of and be grateful toyon,’*
&c. The following was the character sent by
Miss Howard: «Miss Howard presents her
compliments to Mrs. Boldero, and begs to say
that during the long time Ann Wingate was in
her service she always found her strictly
honest, sober, active, cleanly and industrious.
She can truly recommend her as a good- f
servant.—Monkton, October 29.” On the ;
strength of this character, the girl obtained the -
situation in the establishment of Mr. Boldero,
of the firm of Spencer, Turner & Boldero, of.
Lisson Grove. Shortly after she had been In
her place robberies became frequent. She was
at length caught in the act, and her husband .
was found to be the receiver. The defendant
pleaded guilty to the charge of giving the false
character, but stated it was done in ignorance; :
In disposing of the case, Mr. Knox said: In i
simple matter of this sort I have only one duty
to perform—that is, to protect the public from
being imposed uponbysneh recommendations as
that given by the defendant; By. this practice
any thief, burglar, house-breaker, or cut-throat
can get into a_ service where any amount of
depredation might be committed. Ip this case
she. gives a character to a thief who gets into
Mr. Boldero’s service, and there commits a ;
most abominable robbery. The offence, is a
most direful one, and I hope this will be a
warning topersons in her positionagainst giving -
false characters. I have the option of reducing
the penalty, but I shall not in this case. lean-;
hot help saying that the defendant has acted
scandalously for one in her position. I;inflict
the full penalty of £2O and 10s. costs, with Urn..
alternative of three months’ imprisonment. ,
