MR. EOLLTNS' RESIGNATION
There has been considerable excitement
tcHlay in _various circles relative to:the ac
ceptance,by the Pieeident of the resigns-.
tion of Mr. Rollins, of the Internal Revenue
Department, and much, anxiety has pre
vailed with regard to the rumored appoint
ment of a new Commissioner. It wag
reported this afternoon that Mr. Johnson
had designated a Commissioner ad interim,.
- but upon inquiry it is ascertained that so
far there has been no appointment', and in
all probability will not be for two.or three
days, 'if so soon. The belief is expressed
that the Attorney General will not give his
opinion as to whether under the law
the office is now vacant, and that until
such opinion is stated there will be no fur
tikr action by the President. Mr. Rollins

uty Commissioner Harlan is in charge of
the office. Different impressions prevail
whether Mr. Rollins will retire in case the

Literary Ani)irs at PerryopoliAn Inter..
The beautiful and picturesque village of
Perryopolis, nestlimr among the majestic
hills and sublime scenery of Fayette coun
ty, about forty : five miles above Pittsburgh,
on the Connellsville railroad, was startled
out of its usual quiet and for a season made
to quiver with excitement by a literary
and musical entertainment, which took
place there a few evenings since. The af
fair was under the immediate supervision
of Messrs. Henry-and Baugh, and was held
for the - benefit of the Sunday School con
nected with the Church in which it took
pirei- For weeka_preparations for the
eventhad been going - tin, and when; the
time arrived, it was -made the occasion
for a grand outpouring of the inhabitants,
old and young, so that eight o'clock,
the hour appointed for the commencement
of the exercises, foiled the building crowded
almost to suffocation with the beauty,
fashion and intelligence of the vicinity, all
clothed somewhat after the style of the man
in ancient tame, who fared sumptuously
every day. The programme, occupying
over two hours in its rehearsal, was of a
varied and interesting character, consisting
of vocal and instrumental musical
'tions, declamations, dialogues, readings
and tableaux, all of which were rendered
in a manner that reflected great credit on:
the training of the performers, and if ap
plause is any criterion, were highly appre
elated by the audience.' Among so many
performers of a first-class order it is almost
..inipossble to single out any with
out doing injustice to the remain
der, but we cannot refrain from noticing
the vocal and instrumental exercises of the
Misses Townsend ancVMartin, which were
especially well done, the audience mani
festing their appreciation of them in rounds
of applause. In the dramatic line, by com
mon consent the bleed of 'praise was'
- awarded to Mr. Lee S. Smith, a well-known
Pittsburgh amateur, who was sojourning
in the vicinity, and had kindly consented
to assist in the entertainment. In the
"Regular. Fix" Mr. Smithtnadeia great Int.
representing in, life-like reality the char
acter which. he assumed, the audience not
failing to acknowledge, - in an emphatic
manner, their opinion of the performance.
At intervals a brass band discoursed sweet
melody, which:formed quite an, additional
feature in the exercises, and served in an
agreeable manner to relieve the tedium of
waiting between the performapees. Time
and space, however,woulci both fail in men
tioning in detail all the attractions
of the occasion. Suffice it to say, that when
the curtain gracefully fell on the closing
tableau*, in which the entire company of
performers joined, and' the'echo of the last
round of applause had died away, all felt
that the affair had fully equaled the high
est expectations of the most sanguine, and
as they slowly dispersed homeward spec
tators and performers congiatulated them
selves on having;participated in an occasion
which would hereafter mark an epoch in
Perryopolis village life.

It will be seen that, in the main, wages
in Philadelphia? are lower than here. But
it - is a fact that mechanics llve far more
comfortably irk, 'Philadelphia than in. New
York.. Philadelphia has hundreds of acres
of ground covered with small neat houses;
which are rented - at low rates, and inhabited
by the same class of people who are here
compelled to live in tenement houses... Phi
ladelphia has well built and well conducted
'markets;. New York has only a parcel of
filthy sheds. There are other advantages
which make life in Philadelphia tei work
