tVorrestandenea of the InutadeteWs Evening Bulletin- 1
Pants, Friday, Nov. 20, 1808.—Fanerals are
not very lively things / nor are wholusaleproseen-
Slone of the press exactly what are most agrees
' ble to the public Or gratifying to those who are
the object of them. Yet. funerals and press pros
ecutions have been of late the order of the day in .
Frames. We have just "assisted," se the phrase
goes here in Parts, at the Obscqntes of _the "last
of the Barons" of She second generation, of the
•Rothechilde; while we have read of a great po
litical funeral, that of M. Ravi°, the late editor of
the Bieck, at his native place, Torlgny, in
the Department of . La Manche, which he repro
suited in the Corps Legislatif; and, again, to
toOrtew We are ferwitnees s t r'ratifer listen to the
grand musical ceremony which will, swan-like,
consigti to their last resting-place the remains of
-him who may be called the "soul of melody,''
the illustrious maestro, Gloacchino Antonio Ros
sini. Here is enough surely, and more than
enough in the burying line to , satisfy the most
morbid temperament, and enough also to afford
a wide field for the public to' manifest feelings of
a very varied character. And, first, a word
or two respecting M. Ravin. The BPefe
is altogether an exceptional isewspaperin France,
and eo,therefore,is its editor,or political director,
en exceptional personage. The opponents of the
sesek call it the journal de* cabarets, or as we
should say, the "pot-home journal." Its friends
name it the journal du peuple—the "people's
paper;"- and with more reason, for it is certain
ly the representative par excellence of the really
democratic feelings of the French masses. In
this respect the Biecle has been bold, straight-for
ward and consistent, and has exercised and still
exercises a very wide influence. It is to be wished
that its -religious principles were on a
par with its political teachings, in wider'
ease the SiMe might be safely pronounced to be
an cmipently useful pnhlle and political organ
However, apart from this, its grand aim has been
the diffusion of ' democratic principles in a direc
tion tending to the re-establishment of repub
!lean institutions in France when the times and
the people were ripe for such a change. That a
journal of this character should have remained
so long the popular organ, and that its editor
should have been returned by immense majorities
as deputy both for the capital and his native
Province, speaks volumes for the sentiments
Which still lie at the bottom of the hearts,of the
French people. And now let us see what sort of
manifestations the funeral of AL Haven has
evoked among his own constituents. Every
thing passed in the quietest order, as was befitting
the solemnity of the grave; for it is deplorable to
see a churchyard made the scene or occasion of
political excitement. But there was no mis
taking the popular homage paid to the principle:
of which 3L Ravin and the Slick are the repre
sentatives, nor the extent of the sympathy so
manifested. lam assured by those present that
not less than 10,000 persons followed the remains
u, the grave or assembled round the tomb.
The concourse was immense. The "people"
;locked thither from all parts; and it must be re
membered that by far the majority of those pre
sent were composed- of desserts freed the-rural
communes In which it laimpposed that juinerill
ism finds its--stronghold. And so it does--tor the
moment; but there is something beyond imp.
Hallam which these people are secretly yearning
for, and which, depend upon. it, they wilt
demand, as soon as they begin to feel
stronger upon their legs. They believe that
the Empire "saved" them from anarchy, and
therefore they cling to it; but It is only un
til they learn how it Is that 3 people "save
themselves;" and the true eecret^ of the
popularity of M. Ravin and the Bitcle and the
manifestations made of it the other day in La
Manche, is that the late editor and his journal
were employed in "educating up" the nation to
The funeral of Baron Rothschild was of alto
gether a different character from the above,hnd
was remarkable chiefly as a display of universal
respect towards the memory of a man who had
been. in his life, so universal a benefactor. The
concourse of people was prodigious, but it wte.-
iedividnal, rather than popular feeling, welch
made it so, and was a proof of the widely spread
beneficence and charity which had been
exercised for so many years, and called forth
spootaneous gratitude from the objects of it
Never before have 1 seen the funeral of so wealth.)
an individual followed by such a host of poor
people. Of the thousands present, by far the ma
jority belonging to the laboring classes,and were
;he noblest tribute to the life of the deceased .
And so the late Baron seemed , to have thought ,
for except this best of Amoral splendor, the tear
of the widow and the orphan and tire blessing of
the unfortunate, there was little to decorate
his hearse. The simplicity was such as might
have been mistaken for meanness in a less
wealthy person. But the train of real mourners.
reaching over nearly a mile, replaced all other
trappings of the pompes
-1 in made the
ceremony one of the most striking over seen in
the streets of Paris.
ROSSiDi'S obsequies have been deferred till to
morrow, and will take place at the new Trinity
Church, at the bottom of the Rue de la Chausseie
d'Antin, instead , of at theldadeleine, which, as the
papers express it, in " engaged " for, another and
similar purpose. The programme of the musical
service is so inviting that " tickets " are greatly
in request and entrance extremely difficult.
Patti, Alboni and Nilsson, with Aware, are the
chief vocalists, and the pupils of the Conserva
toire will form the chorus. Ainongst the pieces
will of course be selections from the Stabat nigter
of the great deceased. 7...
And now enough of funerals, and let us take a
look at the living. There is . nothing very lively
going on at the present moment. in Paris, where
political life remains dull until the opening of the
Chambers, and social life hardly ever begins in
earnest until after New Year's Day. The Prince
and Princess of Wales have arrived amongst ne
and intend spending a few days between Paris
and Compiegne, before proceeding to Egypt to
pose the winter. They only arrived at the Hotel
Bristol, 'in the Place Vendome, at SA. M., infter
a night's journey, but nevertheless were - present
at the Varietes, in the evening, to see Schneider
in La Perichok. Such activity is
quite reassuring as to her . Royal
Highness's "delicate" health. But is there not a
little too ulna or this scampering atter theatres
and every species of amusement by these exalted
personages? People at last got to think that
they really have nothing else to do but to amuse
themselves, and begin to ask "next what is the
use of them? Here we have Queen Isabella, too
also "amusing" heraelf,- and tinding consolation
for the loss of the crowns of Aragon and Castile
in frequenting the small, minor theatres of Paris—
such, for instance, as the Polies DramatiqueA,
where the pieces, and the audiene,es - are about on
an equality, and neither possessing anything to
boast of on the score, or morality.
Then again, at Comp Eve, we bear of nothinz
but amusements and theatricals, and danzing,and
keeling, and what not. Everywhere it is the
same, and Ibis royalty seems to hale adopted for
its motto, "let us eat and drink, for to-morrow
we die;" and "dying," indeed, Is likely to be the
word; when such a portent as a "Spanish Repub
lic" is looming on the other side of the Pyrenees.
There will•be great events before long in Europe.
Kings and Queens are dancing - and - feasting—or
doing worse. But the "people" are attending
Havin's funeral by tens of thousands, and Sub
eel iblog to Bandin's monument, and I am much
mistaken if these things do not bode Li, change
and a reversal of parts, in which the first shall ba
bat and the last first.

SINGULAR Timpani( cv 0111(10.
Mita Willed by Bears.
The Dayton (Ohio) Journal of Monday says
Captain Worst, of the canal boat Sentinel, No.
2, met with a tragic fate one day last week.
Captain W. started from the Junction for a deer
taint, to be absent only a portion of the day.
He did not return the same evening; and not
getting in the•next forenoon, his men thought
that something was wrong, and started in
quest of him. ' About the middle of the
afternoon they found his dead , body!
Ho had 'evidently had a combat with bears, and
he had been overpowered anktnost terribly torn
by their fangs. His gun lay a few feet from him,
and the barrel was bent out of shape,-and the
stock had been hanimered into fragments, which
plainly indicated that the conflict had been ter
rific. A few rods distant away, a large buck was
"swung np" against a tree, and a portion of it
bad been devoured by, beara—thetracksindicating
the kind of animal which ,had made the attack
on him. It Is the uiost terrible death in the
woods that we havo'heard of.-for a number of
years. The captain had evidently had a ,very
Bard fight—the ground being beaten- with the .
tracks of the combatants for several• rods around .
—and he had , died game. The probability is that
Capt. Worst cacao, uPonl tlAtv boars aftor.they liad

and proving more than a match for him, he lost
Me life in a manner so fearful that it makes ono
ahudder to con template the affray.

The solitary cherub that sits Up aloft in the
Court Rouse tower, whim+) special duty it, is to
sound notices of fires, must have been kept re
markably busy for about an hour last evouing.
At 6.15 an alarm was, struck from box 10, occa
sioned by the discovery of flames in=room b. on
the third floor of Judd's five-story brick building,
at N0..151 Randolph street. Two young- men. -
mined L. B. Sturgis and A. Z. Salomon, were the
lessees of the apartment with the one adjoining it
and used No. 5 as a sleeping room. In No.
they bad Itist arranged an extensive sample stock
of fancy imported holiday goods, valued by them
at over $4,000. These were totally destroyed,
and the furnbure, personal effects, &c., of the
proprietora were injured enough to bring the total
loss up to nearly gd5,000. The goods were in
sure d for $3,000,1n the Germania.
While the engines were still at work at the
above fire. the bell in the tower pealed out an
alarm from box 175, which was shortly after
ward followed by one from box 21. The last
one was caused by a conflagration in the two
etory frame building at No. 418 State street,
owned by Mr. B. E. Crane, of the firm of Crane
McManus, carpenters and joiners, who were
its occupants. The building was as dry as tin
der, and the flames spread With unusual rapidity
to the adjoining structures, and for a time it
seemed as though every endeavor .of the fire
men to stay the progress of the conflagration
were doomed to prove unavailing. No. 420, in
the same building, occupied by Wherrin do
Emory, cabiretmakere, was destroyed.
Several surrounding buildings also were
burned down.
The exceedingly combustible nature Of the
buildings destrcryod in the above conflagration so
hastened the progress of destruction that in a
trifle over half an hour from the time the alarm
was 'given there was nothing left of any of them
but a smouldering heap of ruins.
The general alarm of fire, proceeding from box
N0..L70, which was sounded at about 7 o'clock
last evening, was occasioned by the burning of
the handsome residence of the well-known
brewer, Mr. 3. A. Huck, situated in the town of
Lake View.
Three Serious conflagrations!,
The fire, which originated in the basement,
either from a defective furnace or from some
flaw in the gas generator, spread rapidly, and be•
fore timely aid arrived the building had been
completely gutted, the Interior, together with ab
the furniture, pictures and library being totally
destroyed. Mr. Huck and his gardener, Charles
Kernatz, who first discovered the fire, need every
exertion to stay the flames, but in vain, they
being driven from the building by the dense
volumes of smoke proce - eding from the base
meat: The gardener,while endeavoring to quench
the fire, was seriously injured by the explosion
of the automatic gas machine, being severely
burned about the head, hands and breast. Re
was kindly cared for, and under the treatment of
Dr. Wel 'ban, bids fair to recover.
The fire department was on hand, but only in
time to save the brick walls, which still remain
The estimated loss is fixed at about $40,000,
which is only , partially covered by insurance
in several coma %les to the amount of $15.000.

—The appearance of Madame De La Grange in
a German version of Robert le .Diable, attracted
an audience, last night, larger than any, that has
attended the Academy during the present season.
The excellence of the spera was, perhaps, nearly
as great an inducement as the popularity of the
prima donna. Robert was Meyerbeer's first great
success, and it is one of the finest of his compo
sitions—surpassed, probably, only by the Hague , .
note. Previous to its production, the composer's
works had not been received with favor, and it
was not until Meyerbeer had guaranteed its pecu
niary success,that a manager could be found who
was willing to rehearse it. It proved an immedi
ate triumph. For two hundred nights it was• Pe
rformed before enthusiastic audiences, and the.
frenzy of excitement over it in Paris was .as In
tense„as any that ever existed here during the
fiercest political campaign. That was thirty-five
years ago. The music to-day is as fresh and beau
tiful and charming as it was then. There is
hardly an episode in it which does not abound
with exquisite harmonic and melodic effects. and
in some of the passages the passionate expression
of the music is equal to the best that was ever
The performance last night was very satisfac
tory. Madame La Grange,. without the vocal ca
pacity of former days, was very great. Her
voice has lost its bloom—its richness and power;
.but she sang with her old grace and feeling, and
her acting throughout was spirited and filled
with fervid passion. In this latter respect she
remains unsurpassed upon the lyric stage.
There is no one who can give snen physical in
terpretation of emotion as she does. This
atoned for deficiencies in her vocalization; but
her singing was by no means poor. At first she
sang with difficulty, and her listeners
bad uneasy forebodings of a catas
trophe; but in the second act she
gained strength, and in rue superb duet with
"ffertram" her reserved power was wonderfully,
manifest. She sang up to C sharp with apparent
ease, at the same time displaying such great his
trionic ability that elm wa.3 warmly applauded.
in the succeeding trio also, Mad. La Grange did
admirably well, and, indeed, from that time
onward, her performance was that of a rest
artist. Sho sang alternately in German 'and
Italian, using both languages with equal ease'
fluency. The trio above mentioned was spoil.
by Mr. Hermanns, who sang false, and failed 11
reach the low note, E flat. Elsewhere this gen
tleman acquitted himself in an extremely credi
table manner, but he suffered throughout by com
parison with Carl Formes, the great exponent of
the character of "Bertram." Mr. Hermanns ar
ranged his costume and face upon the diabolic
theory; but as "Bertram" is supposedto have ap
peared as a knight, we think the Meplaistophe
lean dress hardly proper, albeit very effective.
Sig. Brignoli sang sweetly, and displayed rather
more earnestness than usual; Mr. Hableman was
an excellent "Rambaldo," but lie committed the
fault—comm On-with him—of singing too_plotyly
at times. Miss McCullough's "Isabella?, was
Tho ballet in the third act was conducted by
Mlle. Marie Wesmael, who danced exquisitely.
The music of this episode is moat delicious. It
displays more genitts,and is better worth hearing
than all the jig tunes, hand-organ melodies, and
eccentric effects ever produced by Offenbach
This evening La 7'raviata will be produced, with
Mad. La Grange in the cast. An exCellen ; t per

—The Circus company now yerforming at the
Chestnut Street Theatre is really worthy of the
most liberal support. The whole troupe is good,
but a number of them are great artists in their
line. James Robinson's riding and summers,anits
on a bare-bucked horse, going at full speed, are
wonderful to behold. His little son, Clarence, is
no less a wonder. The Mtuligans and. Madame
Tourniairc are very fine riders, and the little
girl, Mize. is a real phenomenon.. The LeVan
tine Brothers are models of manly " beauty and
grace, and their acrobatic exploits are remarka
bly fine. The tricks of the trained dogs and the
monkey races are extremely amusing. Mr. Sinn
deserves to be well sustained in his cute Ow - of
introducing this capital circus company to the
Philadelphia public. In addition to the evening
prprormAnces there will be a math*: to-morrow

An-American actor in LOlldOtto
The following acknowledgment of England's
indebtedness to America for professional talent
is from the London Times.. The tribute paid to
Mr. Clarke is noticeably just:
"Through the phase of mere Yankeeism wo
have now passed, and so strangely has the rela
tion between England and America been altered
within the last thirty years. that instead 'of the
English "star" shining at New York it la the
American "star" shining in London. We need
only look at the great theatrical successes "of the
present day, and we perceive at once that we
must mentally cross the Atlantic to trace them
to their source. Who is the actress
that at the present anoment can.- , most
stir whole multitudes With tragical emotion? Un
questionably, Miss Bateman,whose "Leah" never
seems to lose its attractiveness in capital or pro
vince. Which is the theatrical figure of late that •
has become an acknowledged symbol, the signifi
cance of which everybody is expected to under
stand? Unquestionably the "Lord Dundreary"
of Mr. Sothern, who, though of English origin,
la professionally, to allintents and purposes, an
American. Which is the most natural, finished,
and easy performance that within the last few
years has been seen
_on any London
stage? Few will object if this question is
answered by a reference to the "Rip Van
Winkle of 31 - r. Jefferson. And let it be distinctly
observed that these three instances of American
icre-eminence have•rinthing to do with .Yantee
peculiarities. The actor of celebrity who has,
most -recently come from, the New World is
Mr. John B.,Clark, with whom we first became
acqUainted at the et.Jaines's Theatre last winter,
and who is now playing at the Strand.' In his
own country he has long been famed, especially
at New York, where he was manager of the Win
ter Garden, reckoned ono of the first theatres in
that city till the time of its destruction by fire.
In London, however, he has virtually been
seen in only one character, for, though
be' Came out as 7'eike iu the 'School for
ReeTlll,' it was not in this now bygone
part that be made any deep impression, whereas
the late Mr. Stirling Coyne's comedy, 'Every
body's Friend,' newly named the' Widow Haat,'
which followtd the dull play, was at once identi
fied with a great success, aid hitherto Mr. Chirke
remains permanently as 3lajur Wellington de Ituutg
who, as he at present stands, in purely a crea
tion of his owr, 'Everybody's Friend,' was no
more written iu the first place for the mere sake
of exhibiting this semi-military oddity, than the
'American Cousin' was constructed for the sake
of Lord Thendrearg, who it entirely cat out of
the piece would leave the plot intact. In both
eases the exceptional merit of the actor has con
verted into a practically ono part piece a com
edy ortainally designed for the combination of
many talents.

brought it up to a high conditten of usefulness. Ef
forts are being made to extend to. operations over the

meeting with encouragement. The managers have re

On this tract of land it is the intention to erect, early
in the Spring, a commodious structure, with all the
conveniences necessary for carrying On the operations
