Lssraa a ''Mesa STI:AIiT...—If any evidence
were needed to prove the appreciation of oar people
forst hc puestancl highest forms of draratttleert. it was
furnisheddast evening. by the audience which filled the
Academy, to witness Mrs. Larder's representation 'of
Mary, Queen of Scots. Not only was the assemblage
large, but it was in deep and earnest sympathy with
the spirit of the play. The performsnee was rather
ole bat there was a want of resilessuess among the
audience, and a liberal bestowal of applause._ which
showed a thorough appreciation of the excellence of
theireprasentabon and a keen perception of the merit
of certain of the more striking passages. The crowded
condition of our Columns to day renders an elaborate
criticism entirely impossible ' But while deferring
this pleasant duty to another time, simple justice to
Mrs. Lander demaeds that her first appearance in this
character should receive something more than a
passing notice. The drama itself Is excel
h et. It is an adaptation from Mrs. Kem- ,
tiles stile) rabic translation of Schiller's
grand poem, and It bright with must eloquent and
beautitul evidence of the author's genius. Necessarily,
It is very much curtailed from the original, and Borne
of the most dramatic passages are omitte'd; but the
arrangement, upon the whole, is an excellent one.
Mrs. Lander's personation of "Mary" descries the
warmest praise that can be bestowed upon it. It
is not cxtrava"ant to say, that her conception is fully
as great as that of Mister'. throughout, and,in some In
stances. Mrs. Lander, laboring us she does under tire
diiadvantage of a less lmposing presence, and with a
voice, though as sweet and flexible. yet less sonorous,
even surpasses the ureat Italian. FaeCptillg Ristorfa
Maris A9llM,lettf, wo have had, in late years, no such
bit di true dramati 7, art noon the Philadelphia stage.
Mrs. Landers "Elizabeth" entitles her to a high place
as a histrionic artist, but her"lSfary Stuart" is so fir
sluice lot to it, that it is a matter of regret that she
had not chosen the latter: in which to. Make
her (Ober in the historical drama. It seemed last
evening, in looking at her, that In the fitness of things
she was destined to be the true interpreter of the
touching and pathetic character. which Schiller has
given to ttie beautiful Queen of Scotland.
Mrs.d.ander; by the torce of her genius, and genius
in the truest sense she possesses, has fairly won her
way to the bead of her professionend she is entitled to
have the distinction awarded her that upon the English
stage, as far settle members of her own sex are con
cerned, she Is without a peer. It is unnecessary, and,
indeed, impossible, to do anything to-day but merely
eulogize this eplendid performance in a general way.
This journal is not disposed to do more than simple
justice to any artist who comes before the public to
fearlessly condemn whereit is required, to warmly
praise where it is deserved; and in pursuance of this
policy, we have given to Mrs. Lander her due,and we
give to our readers the advice, that they do not fail to
witness this performance when it is given again.

Good cheer dots not always 'lie with the
'great. If you were not tired of him, I would
instance the happy man whom the philosopher
wanted to change shirts with, and who • had no
shirt. A better instance is Cervantes. Arriving
upon Parnassus, and finding all the thrones oc
cupied: "Never mind, man," said Apollo to the
wit. "it is better to deserve a place than to ob
tain one; double your cloak and sit upon it."
"You don't see, lord Apollo," said the gay sati
rist, "that'l have' no clotili."
Modern newspaper men are exceptions. Their
merit is so transcendant! You never meet one
(,1' them (in print) who does not dine nightly at
V6four's, or L,:B Troia fi4re , ,?, except when espe
cially engaged at an Embassy. Galignani's man,
the feathery critic of operas and first represen
tations, can get a very fair midnight supper at
the Cafe Anglais; and the curled lion of the
graph, that tweet fast min, has been seen, at
his modest moments, chez Voisin, whose St.
.Julien, at seven francs the bottle, is very
aupportable. *hen I mat these correspondent
gentlemen, whose (professionally
and in printer's ink) are so nearly
royal ; when I see their fingers spottei with ink,
and their brows clouded with appregnsion lest
their best speculations and prophecies may have
been devastated by some later telegram in the
news column,l sometimes wonder at the bravery
with which they can carry it off in their histrionic
hour, and at the appetite' , with which men who
rthrelys dine with Baron Brisse or Doctor Yeron,
can face me over a plate of bouilli and mustard.

Thackeray, in his day, was more Bohemian
" Come along." he would cry, to an artist who
loves to tell inc stout him, "dome along and
have something. They've invented a new dish
which I don't think you've tasted—lobster salad!
Let us try it,and it's my treat. I'm poor to-day,
but I can make ten or fifteen pounds to-morrow

And he would lead the way, in his hearty, bust
ing manner, into a very modest cabaret indeed.
But that was just after the Irish Sketch Book—
_in 18-14. He had not
_yet created the genus
It was to 'no Maison Dorde,no illimitable series
of cabinets. all made of mirrors and gold and
clicking like a factory with a thousand clocks,
that the valiant Greatheart's memories reverted to
when he sat down and thought out the "Bonilla
- balm." You - retail the ballad—one of the most
manly, tender, genuine poems of society' that
ever was written, perfumed all through with
pensive cheerfulness and the homely, humorous,
'not unsavory aroma of long-digested feasts.
What poem can you point to better of its kind—
more fillolirith genuine but restrained emotion,
more aptly bitting the half-sung, halt-desolate
shade of feeling with which one sits down to a
good but 'solitary dinner and recalls gayer feasts
eaten long since with those who are changed or
dead! It is - not carried too far—earth is not seen
as a desert one is bound to traverse, seeking to
rind the old familiar faces; but the mood grows
just so poignant that the epicure becomes reck
less of the petty distinctions between Chablis
and Mediae—
" Welcome the wine, whateer the seal is!'
and drops one warm but unobtrusive tear into
the " lonely glass " he drains to " the dear old
,Whet I first came to Paris I assure you I spent
some time in trying to discover Terrci's tavern,
and the host with the droll grimace, and the
ikuillabaie, or hotchpotch of all kinds of fishes,
which I would have supped piously to the last
drop of juice and last button of fat, albeit but a
feeble lover of that "legless, unloving, infa
mously chaste" thing, the fish. One of thy
earliest and easiest explorations was in the
street of Paris famous, for which no rhyme
our language yields; and when I had fold's& the
great blue legend at a corner, Rue Neuve des
Petits Champs, I scrutinized all the brassy
blazons of the restaurateurs for the legendary
name of Terr 6. But, "Monsieur is dead this
many a day ;" and all I found was Antony, who
had heard of him.
The above, you perceive, is but my rounda
bout introduction and way of bringing up to
Antony, the old garcon. He shall be my hero,
although hastily put off with a paragraph or
two. Come up, Antony, and stand for your por
trait, Change my plate—the foie de veau was
not quite to my liking—and order a maccheroni
gratin, which you serve better than the Falcone
at Rome. Ah, you sly,dog, you are hiding my
foie, which is to your - bitte, if not to mine, in
your own little forecastle hole. It will go to
your own supper. Now tell me, how long have
you been garcon de traitteur? 4
He answered like the grave-digger to Hamlet:
"hinn o snd boy, thirty years."
j.nd how long in this pretty restaurant on the
Neuve des Petits Champs?
"Near thirteen, Monsieur. I was here with
the ancient patron. I wore his aprons five
"Give me an account of your day, good
"Well, Monsieur, "present myself at eight, and
polish the windows and the cutlery, and run into
the'kitchen to instruct the young devils of cooks.
They think of nothing but the whiteness of their
caps and the confectioner's girls opposite. Some
times I shake a saucepan myself. We breakfast
at noon, and dine the moment you Monsieurs are
all gone. Between those two points I run about
and feed my menagerie (household) like the offi
cers who aliment the savage beasts at the Garden
of Planta."
When I have swallowed title flattering analogy
I add: And then?
"Why, then, Monsieur, at ten o'clock, begins
my own slight fete. lam fond of cards. I adore
a billiard cue ae an old icrisloner at the In
vendee worships a musket."

"Until midnight, M'sieu. I came home at one
last night, tearing my hair. I had lost ten francs
at the egaminet—nearly half-a-Week's wages.
The sans you beneficently drop into the silver
vase go to me and Pierre, and we live upon them—
an existence of copper; but I scarcely ever tone
fifty francs in lifte. days. I tore my hair then
I bad a bad dream.

Alit. Thomas paper relates the following
remarkable incidents of the recent hurricane
"A gun cm the ramparts - of Fort Christian,
used for firing the morning and evening signal,
was forced through the,pqapot, wail and thrown
down into the barrack yea. The'diving bell be
longing to the dredging apparatus, a balk of
about nine tons, was lifted from the place known
as hulks' or poritoon,and carried over and thrown
into one of the spar pits of Mr. Hughes, a dis
tance of at least a quarter of a mile. A piece of
scantling some twenty-five feet long pierced the
roof of a wooden house in Prindsesse street,
passing through the back of a rocking chair and
under a cottage piano, just near enough not to
touch the keys above and the pedal below, then
went through the floor and rested on the counter
of. a grocer's shop underneath; so that the one
end projected out at the roof. while the other
end rested on the counter, at the same time hold

luterestiiw Details of the Earthquake,
November 1S and 19
A letter from Mayagiiez, dated November 12,
At five minutes past three o'clock P. M., yes
terday, we experienced an earthquake such as
the oldest inhabitants do not recollect ever hav
ing felt before. The day was clear, and what Bt
tle breeze there was came from the southeast.
The shocks were three in number, the last be
ing the most violent. The oscillation was from
east to west, and the effect such as to ring all the
church bells and the town clock, just as if there
were general alarm sounded by 'the authori
ties. Shortly after the shoats the tide rose in the
river, and a current set in, up stream, at the rate
of about ten miles an hour. Up to dark the
river overflowed six different times, rising as
high as one yard over the mole. WoknoW of
some sugar house chimneys, wallshnd a few new
houses having been thrown down. Alongside of
one.of these houses there sprung up two foun
tains or water, and this strengthqw the ,bellef
that the quake passed along in that limnifiiate
neighborhood. _
During the night there were five other shocks,
and at half past seven this morning there was
another very violent one. Fortunately, thus far
I bare heard of no injury-to persons resulting
frofii,the shocks.

Henry C. Warmer, a young man about 28
years of age, a messenger in the employ of the
Merchants' Union Express Company, was yester
day arrested at the Bates House and committed
to jail upon the charge of committing a heavy
robliery while acting m his capacity of money
messenger for the company. The particulars
of his crime, as wo have learned them are as
follows—ln October last a package of
money, amounting to $6,173, was being trans

press Company from the Bank of Commerce,
Now York, to the First National Bank of Mis
souri, at St. Louis. At this place the psekage
came into the hands of Mr. Warrener. The
money was done up as banks usually do up
money—in $5OO bundles, enveloped with a small
band. These were then placed in a sack, tied
together with a cord, and overthe knot the seal
was placed, so that it would be impossible to
untie it without destroying the still Mr. War

crossed the Indiana line the temptation
came over him to steal the money,

with the point of his penknife, untied the cord
around the sack, removed the money, and then
with the aid of a light, replaced the seal as it was
at first. Upon the delivery of the money at 81.

Warrener returned he reported It to the office
here. A shrewd Chicago detective was employed

friend he had loaned a $llO bill, identified as be

is among the amount recovered. Mr.
Warrener was watched, and finally on
Saturday night last the matter was broached
to him by Superintendent R. B. McPher

proof was too overwhelming against him, and
desired him to make a free confession and resti

o'clock this morning in the county Jail yard, In
presence of fifty odd spectators, for the murder
of Edward Roes and eon, near Bt. Louts. He died
rather hardly, owing to the noose supping after
be bad dropped, but In forty minutes life was ex
tinet.Previous to the exectition,and before leaving
his cell,Christnan began to change countenance
and grow pa le.losing partly the stolid indiffCrence
manifested since his arrest. He said' he did not
know what made him kill Mr. Ross; that they
had a little fuss that evening. and he felt mad;'
that after killing Mr. Ross be wont out Into , the
yard and walked around there a little while, and
then went back and killed the little, boy. He did
not know what made him kill the boy. ,When
asked if because he feared the boy would inform
on him he said he expected that was the
reason. He `said he did not look for any
money; that the confused state of the furniture
and other articles in the room was Just the same
as it was in the' evening; that he took the cloth
ing because he wanted some clothes to wear,.
and the horses and wagon because Mr. Ross
owed him NO, and he thought the team would
about pay him. He was, not afraid of lbeing,
caught, and did not drive fast. The place where
he was arrested is only twelve miles from the:
city. When surketlwhy he did not go farther so
the officers would not catch him, he said , he
thought that was far enough. When asked if '
he expected to get off without being hung, he
said the did-not know.
The jailor stated that upon entering the cell he
has frequently found the prisoner prostrated
upon the bed, with his face down. In an attitude
of extreme dejection, and the jailor seemed to
think that there was a sort of pride about him
which led hint to conceal his emotions before
strangers by assuming the -meaningless smile
and Inexpressive manner before spoken of.
On reaching the scaffold, supported by a priest,
Chrisman was silent and hardly spoke a word.
Ile was very pale, and during the reading of the
death warrant trembled slightly. His confessor
spoke to him constantly, and asked him if he
had anything to eay. He replied In the negative,
and two minutes after the Viarshal wive the sig
nal, and the body of Obri' matt: was suspended by
the e eck.
The deed for which he WAR executed was one
of the most diabolical murders recorded, and the
execution was richly deserved.

(From the Cincinna Times.]
Yesterday , nioruine about two o'clock the po
lice on the Mt. Auburn road met and arrested
two persons, male and female, who were in pos
session of a lot of articles which they believed
had been stolen. It turned out that they had
c.ntertd the cellar of Mr. Rickert, In that vicinity,
aid bad taken some twenty-five pounds of sugar,
several cans of fruit, a turkey and other eata
bles. They were confined in the station-house,
and this morning were before the Police Court
on a charge of larceny. The female is about twenty_
years of age, small of stature, neatly dressed,
and spite modest and prepossessing in her
appearance. She had in her arms an infant
some three or four months old. The brother
seems to have seen hard times,- being gaunt in
features and shabbily clad. Upon being' asked
if she pleaded guilty to stealing the edictal', she
answered: "Yes, guilty of stealing them know
ing I was committing a crime." She had first
proposed it to her brother. They had a blind
tether: their mother was sick in bed, and they
-were starving. Upon being questioned why they
had specially fixed upon Mr. Rickert's premises,
she replied that from the appearance of the
Louse she "thought they could spare" somethingß
for them to eat and not feel it." lien - husband
bad left her some four months since, and though
he was at work somewhere over the river, she
bad ItiCeiVed no aid from him. The brother said"
he -bad been employed but one day -in three -

to procure labor. The &Seer who had visited
