NEGRO Rior.—A disgraceful riot occurred at
the lower end of Third street about ten o'clock
last night, between a party of negroes and sol
diers from Camp Curtin, in which stones, clubs,
pistols and muskets were freely used, to th*
severe injury of several of the participants.
The consolidated police wore early upon the
ground and succeeded in arresting LotrisaJack-
ROD, Annie Thomas, Catharine Gooden,
Robert Lave, Sally Hall, Robert Humpbrys
and Wm. Curtis, all of whom in default of bail
were committed by Justice Bender to answer.
During the affray Police officer Carachiner was
shot by a musket, the ball taking effect in is
left thigh. One of the negroes, named Beu.
Blue, was also shot through both his legs, and
had to be carried to his residence.
SANFORD'S OPERA HOUSE. —Manager Sanford
is continually bringing forward new produc
tions, and it is not remarkable that success
should crown his efforts. Sanford is energetic,
and procures each member of his troupe re
gardless of expense. The Opera House is ad
mirably fitted up, and has every accommoda ;
tion requisite for a first class place of amuse
ment, and good order prevails. The perform
ers are all celebrated, and are always highly
applauded by the pleasure-seeking crowd.—
We understand, that Sanford, yielding to the
wishes of a number of our leading families,
has concluded to give a grand .Matinee • next
Saturday afternoon, for the especial benefit of
families and children—the latter to be admit
ted at ten cents.
A FIGHT ABOUT A SLED.—Poor vs. Rich.—To
the rich and prosperous Winter has little of the
attendant horrors with which its advent is ac
companied to the poor and unprovided masses
of the city. To the former, it is only a means
of employing their money in ministering to
their pleasures, and to the latter only an occa
sion for bewailing the loss of even the necessa
ry comforts of life. While the children of the
rich wrapped in furs, enjoy themselves with
gaily painted sleds, the gifts of their indulgent
parents, the offsprings of the poor, often shoe
less, are compelled to witness the pleasures
they can never hope to enjoy; and so it hap
pens, as in the case of older persons, that they
seek to become the champions of their own
rights, and wrest by force, what has been de
nied to them. Thus, a ragged colored boy,
whi) bad no sled, yesterday, in Second street,
near Meadow Laue, set upon a white boy,
and took his sled away from him, in conse
quence of which, a gentleman, who witnessed
the whole transaction, made after the colored
boy, and overtaking him near Mulberry street,
proceeded to " wax" him with his switch cane,
until he cried out lustily, after which he took
the sled and restored it to its rightful owner,
the aforesaid white boy, who, of course, was
highly pleased with the " arm( d intervention"
of hie unknown friend.
SNow.—Weather-wise people wending their
way homeward last night, turned an eye heav
enward and declared with a wise shake of the
head, "snow before morning." Juveniles
could not see it in the clear skies and twins, ling
stars, and turned in with full faith in a fine
day's sport upon the ice ponds. But this
morning—sure enough I—when we bounced
from our beds, we beheld winter's white coat
spread over house and street and sidewalk and
fleecy flakes still falling silently down. Let it
come! say the jubilant youths and merry dam
sels ; we cannot always 'skate, and a little
sleigh ride is good for a change. Aye ! let it
come ; but remember, ye who have plenty and
to spare to keep your backs warm and your
stomach full, that there are poor little bare feet
pattering up and down in the snow this morn
ing, that there bodies, wradped in tattered rags
which shiver with cold, and that there are
stomach which have not been heated by the
fire of food in long, long hours. Turn not, lady
wrapped in warm furs clad in silks and velvets,
heedless from the poor little skinny bare hand
extended at your elbow, and its owner's sup
plications, "please give me a penny, mam ?"
The mite you'll never miss, while it will send
happiness to the hearts of many a poor starv
ling. In such times as these it is better to
give to a dozen who aro under Irving than to
turn away one who is suffering, starving. Re
member the poor.
THE IDENTIFICATION OF THE DROWNED SOL
DIER.—The cavalry soldier who was found
drowned in the canal, near Shoch's mills, on
the alst of December, anti which was noticed
in the TELEGRAPH at that time, has since been
ascertained to be the body of Thomas Conley, a
member of Col. Williams' Cavalry, now in
Kentucky, and whose family resides at "Henry
Clay Furnace," near Columbia. The Lancaster
Express says that private Conley had been at
home on a furlough when his regiment left, but
a few days after took leave of his family with
the intention of joining it. Six weeks elapsed
after his leaving home without a word or any
tidings being received by his wife in relation to
his arrival with his regiment. Mrs. Conley's
solicitude and anxiety were naturally very
much manifested concerning his fate, as he had
promised, when leaving her, to communicate
weekly in regard to his welfare and remit his
pay when due, for her maintenance—this being
the only means of support from which she ex
pected to be maintained during his absence in
service. Pending this anxiety hee cares and
griefs were much increased by ono of her child
ren becoming very sick, and she was necessita
ted to make application to the Relief Board of
Columbia for aid until the fate of her husband
could be ascertained. This relief, we are as
sured, was cheerfully afforded by the Relief
Board on her application, which was on Janu
ary Ist, and until after the melancholy fate
of her husband was discovered.
THE EXPEDITION AGAINST PORT ROYAL FERRY.
—A report of the killed and wounded in a ra
ce:A expedition by our troops against the re
bels at Port Royal Ferry, South Carolina, made
by Brigade Surgeon Geo. S. Kemble, formerly
of this city,, includes the names of private
John Weidenheimer, and Ensign A. Herbert,
both of the Fifteenth Pennsylvania regiment,
Col. B. C. Christ. Weidenheimer received a
gun-shot wound in the light foot, and Herbert
a wound in one of his legs by piece of shell.
FIRE LAST Num —The alarm of fire at half
past nine o'clock last night was occasioned
by the appearance of a large volume of smoke
issuing from the two story brick building at
the corner of Fourth and Market streets, owned
by Mr. Geo. S. Kemble. The doors and win
dows of the building were closed at the time,
and when some of them were opened by the
firemen in order to apply water, the pent up
flames burst forth with a frightful energy,
threatening the speedy destruction of the entire
building. The apparatus of the firemen, how
ever, were soon br mght into action, and by a
copious application of water, the flames were
The first story of the building was devoted
to store-rooms, one of which was occupied by
Ir. Loeb as a variety store. The lire hero

the flames and smoke had that peculiar appeat i !

. destroyed ; but we learn
that his loss is fully insured.
The corner room was occupied by Mr. Kem
ball as a shoe store. His property was
promptly removed without experiencing much
Another room on the first floor, fronting on
Fourth street, was occupied by Mr. George S.
Kemble as a clothing store. A large quantity of
made-up clothing was consumed, and that por
tion not destroyed in this way, was damaged
almost irreparably by the water and smoke.
The dwelling part of the house was unoccu
ed, the former tenant, Lieut. Janice R. Kern
hie, 11. S. A., having removed with his family
to Carlisle. A portion of their furniture, how
ever, still remained in the building, some of
which was entirely destroyed, and other por
tions considerably dainaged by the water.
The damage done to the building itself, so
far as we could observe by a hurried inspection
immediately after the fire had been extin
guished, was in the destruction of a portion of
the flooring, stair-ways and partition walls on
the first story, the discoloring and blistering of
the paint, the breaking of window sash and the
flooding of water generally throughout the en
tire structure. Mr. Kemble, we believe, had
no insurance upon the property, and his loss,
therefore, is considerable.
The origin of the fire is a mystery. Some
suppose it to have caught from a heater in the
cellar, or from a hot air chamber connecting
with it ; yet we understand that as late as half
past eight o'clock the heater was examined by
a gentleman connected with one of the stores
in a e building, and found to be all right, so
that it is scarcely probable thlit within the
short space of an hour afterwards, it could have
got so hot as to communicate fire to any sur
rounding inflamable substance. As to the hot
air chamber, it would be incapable of commu
nicating fire even under the most heated con
dition of the heater.
Since writing the above we understand that
Edward Loeb, the proprietor of the variety
store, was arrested this morning by officer
Fleck, charged with setting fire to his estab•
lishmeut with the view to defraud the Insu
rance company. In default of bail he was
committed to prison by Justice Baader.
GEN. ORD'S BRIGADE.—The regimental flags
of this gallant Brigade of Pennsylvanians, were
day before yesterday presented to them, with
the inscription "Drainesville, December 20,
1861," upon them. Gen. McCall had 'the
whole division drawn up in line. Speaker
Grow was introduced by Gen. W. H. Kelm, ii
behalf of the Stale of Pennsylvania, and he
presented each regiment with these flags, and
closed by an eloquent address, in which he
eulogized the troops for their heroic bravery,
though their ranks were thinned out in the
late contest. Mourn nut for the dead ; they
sleep in honorecj graves. Let the tears we
drop on their ashes be for the near and dear of
the living whose hearts bleed for their loss—
citizens, soldiers, the hour draws nigh when
the drum will again summon you to the battle.

or dynastic rule, but whether the will of the

Man's capacity for self-government is on
trial, and if it fail, the last great experiment
of elective Constitutional Government among
men has been tried„ Liberty heaving her last
sigh, may then wing her way back from earth
to Leaven, and the crushed and down-trodden
of the world may bring their chains as the only
legacy they can bequeath to their children.
Instead of, family or landed aristocracies, it
is now the institution of human bondage war

They have chosen, and will permit no arbiter
but the sword. The only arguments, there
fore, are - cannon balls and battalions. The
waters of the hour are before me, and, if I
mistake not the signs, they will soon be taught
to speak in tones that will teach the enemies of
liberty the rights of mankind.
The lessons taught by our fathers and the
last great battle of Constitutional freedom, will
have been fought and won. In that trying
hour you have already proven, by your heroic
deeds, that the fame of the old Keystone State,
and the memory of her illustrious dead, will
receive no dishonor at your hands.
Take your banner. May it wave
Proudly o'er the good and brave,
When the battle's distant wail
Breaks the Sabbath of our vale ;
When the clarion's music thrills
To the heart of these low hills;
When the spear in conflict shaks,
and the strong lance, shivering, breaks.
General McCall then invited the speaker and
a uumber of others to his quarters, where a
sumptuous repast was set out.

REMARKABLE SAGACITY or A DOG.—A gentle
man of our acquaintance was solicited a few
days since to purchase a beautiful dog of the
Newfoundland species. The seller told sur
prising instances of the dogs intelligence, and
descanted largely on his qualities generally,
and stated he could be sent on any mission
with confidence. To test the dog's qualities,
the gentleman wrote an order and enclosed
five dollars, directed to the cheap dry good store,
enveloped and placed in the dogs mouth, and
he immediately delivered it at Urich & Bow

Retreat of Marshall's Forces Con-
The Rebels Whipped In a Skirmish
Louisvimn, Jan. 13, 1852
A letter from Cattleburg dated the 11th, to
the Democrat, says : On the 7th, on Jennis
creek, three miles west of Paintville, a skirmish
took place between a part of the Second Vir
ginia (U. S.) cavalry, under Col. Bowles, and a
portion of Humphrey Marshall's forces under
Shaw. The rebels lost six killed, and
fourteen wounded, and seven prisoners, while
the federal loss was two killedand one wounded.
Before Col. Bowles made the attack, Hum
phrey Marshall addressed his men, advising
the surrender of the whole force. The men
refused to submit to this disgrace, saying they
preferred to fight, than such a cowardly course.
After the skirmish, Marshall's whole force fled,
and three hundred picked Federal infantry
and nine hundred cavalry pursued them with
the expectation of overtaking them and occu
pying Prestonberg on the 10th.
All is quiet down the road. A delegation of

object of these arrangements being to enable
Ohio to furnish more money to prosecute the
war. He recommends a new system of taxing
railways ; a continuance of the tax to support

Journal which had been kept by Senator Mc-
Lane, of Pennsylvania. Referred.
Mr. Cowell offered a resolution making an
