key that a decidedly "cold spell" has set in;
inet experience has taught most people, par
ticularly house keepers, the great Moon
,enience and annoyance of bursted water
pipes and frozen hydrants. A little precau

carefully turned off at night, and where the

THERE was another very large audience at
Brant's Hall, last night, to see the beautiful
tragedienne, Miss Fanny B. Price, in her
fatuous character of Camille. Never did she
appear to better advantage, and frequent ap
plause greeted her. This evening the thril
ling play entitled EAsr LYNNE, or THE ELOPE
,IENT, will be performed, with Miss Price as
Illy Isabel and Madame Vine; and Mr. Han
diett as Archibald Carlisle. This is a play that
has been instrumental in accomplishing a
great amount of good, and should be wit
nessed by everybody. The entertainment
will conclude with the side splitting afterpiece
entitled Our Gal, in which Miss Fanny Den
ham will sustain the leading characters, and
sing a number of songs.
The engagement of Miss Price will close
with the present week. All who have not yet
sutnessed her beautiful delineations of the
leading characters in the great plays produced

iVma BEARS THE BURDEN?--This is an in
teresting inquiry. Everybody complains of
taxation; but who bears it? Does the mann
lecturer ? No; when he is taxed five per cent.,
he adds at least that much on his products.
The merchant buys his goods at the advance;
but does he suffer the loss ? Everybody knows
that he does not; he adds it on the customer,
and the person that uses the article taxed,
pays the taxation. In April next, as we are
alt. - wined, the tax on real estate is to be levied.
Then the owners of houses will be obliged to
bear their share of taxation. Will they ? No,
indeed; they will throw their burthen upon
:he tenants, and, on the principle that the
''last keeps all," the poor tenant will pay that
tax also. In fact there is no doubt that truth
fully speaking, the poor, who are least able to
do it, are obliged to pay the bulk of the taia
tion. This, all will acknowledge, is not right;
but where is the remedy? Through all the
ramifications of trade and business, this is the
tale observed, even down to the box of matches
with its penny stamp. We know that this

ELLINHEII & FOOTE'S GREAT EXHIBITION AND
AU :AUL ENTEBTATNISENT.—This celebrated
Troupe open at the National Hall, corner of
Second and South streets, on Wednesday
evening, Dec. 21st, and continue for five days,
:living Matinees on Thursday, Saturday and
Monday afternoons, at 3 o'clock. The at
tractions o,ffered are moral and curious, and
the performances of a chaste and amusing
character. In the Musical department we no
tice the names of Franklin and Smith, of the
old Continental Vocalists; Mrs. C. G. Rus
sell, (formerly Miss Ellinger,) a vocalist and
Pianist of celebrity, and Prof. G. H. Brooks,
violinist and pianist, a pupil of the Philadel
phia Institute for the Blind. The prominent
textures of the exhibition, however, are the
distinguished Dwarfs, Corn. Foote and sister,
and Col. Small. We understand the Com.
en route to Washington to witness the re
inauguration of President Lincoln. During
his last visit there the Washington Tian,es (of
Tune 7th) had the following complimentary
"DisTINGUISEIED VISITORS AT THE "Vi r kum
HOURE.—Yesterday, at noon, "Commodore
Foote" and "Colonel Small," the renowned
dwarfs, who are now filling an engagement at
Ford's Athenssum, paid a visit to the White
Mouse, and were received with the greatest
Courtesy by the President of the United States,
Mrs. Lincoln and the members of the Cabinet.
The accomplished personages, the "Commo
ore and Colonel," were much admired by the
inmates of the Presidential Mansion, so much
,0 that their visit was prolonged by request
of Airs. Lincoln, who seemed much delighted
with the accomplishments, good taste and re
ailed manners of the Commodore and Colonel;
and so greit, was the interest manifested, that
the Presiddht's family accepted an invitation,
politely extended by Wm. Effinger, Esq., the
gentleman having charge of the dwarfs, to
attend one of their afternoon performances at
Ford's Athenaeum. From the White House
Commodore Foote and Colonel Small pro
ceeded to the Capitol, where they visited the
Senate of the 'United States, the House of
Representatives, and other places of interest
to and about the Capitol. In the Senate and
Souse o f Representatives, the distinguished
Commodore and Colonel were extended "the
honors of the floor," and attracted the atten
tion and admiration of all. So great was the
interest evinced, that the Speaker of the
Souse placed the dwarfs, one on each end of
his desk, Which positions they occupied for
several seconds." •
ANOTHER ADVANCE: —We see that the New
York newspapers, which advanced their pric,es
from two cents to four, contemplate a further
adiance of prices on the Ist of January next.

NATIONAL BAN/Lg.-It has been currently re
ported that no new National Banks will be
authorized. This report is premature, as will
be seen from the following official communi
OFFICE COMPTROLLER OF THE CURRENCY,
WASHINGTON, December 3, 1864
To the Editors of the Evening Pod:
"I notice in the financial article of the eve
ning Post of the Ist instant, the following
item: The Comptroller of the Currency gives
notice that no more new National banks will
be authorized, but that old State banks can be
still converted into National banks. The
Comptroller has given no such notice. In
view of the facts that State banks are being
rapidly organized under the National Curren
cy Act, and that in Eastern States there is, no
deficiency, but rather an excess of .banking
capital, he has considered it to be his duty to
discourage, in many instances, new organiza
tions, and in more instances the increase of
the capital of those already in existence. It
is the aim of the Comptroller to introduce
the National bank note circulation without
adding to the present inflation, but it is not in
his power to prevent new organizantions, nor
is it his desire to do so in places where the
legitimate business of the country seems to
require additional banking facilities.

HAmusnuno, Feb. Bth, 1864.
C. A. 13amivaar-Dear Sir: I have used Brown's
Bronchial Troches, Wistar's Lozenges, and
other preparations for hoarseness and throat
troubles, and, in comparison with them all,
can cheerfully commend your own as a most
admirable specific for public speakers and
singers, in eases of hoarseness, coughs and
colds. I have found them serving iu time of
need, most effectually.
Yours truly, T. EL ROBINSON,
Pastor of N. S. Presbyterian Church.
I agree with Mr. Robinson as to the
value orßannvart's Troches.

Late Pastor bf 0. S. Presbyterian .Church
iIARRISIIIIRG, Jan., 1864.
To C. A. I.ltNiivAr.r---Dear Sir: In the habit
of speaking very frequently, and in places
where the vocal organs are very much taxed,
I have found the need of some gentle expec
torant, and that want has been supplied in
your excellent Troches.
I consider them very far superior to any
Lozenges that I have ever used, in removing
speedily that huskiness of the voice arising
from its too frequent use, and impairing the
effectiveness of the delivery of public addres
ses. Yours, &c.,
JNO. WALKER JACKSON,
Pastor of the Locust St. Methodist Church.
To C. A. BANNVART--Dear Sir : Having used
your Troches, I am free to say they are the
best I have ever tried, and take great pleasure
in recommending them to all persons afflicted
with sore throat or huskiness of voice, arising
from public speaking or singing.
Yours, &c., G. G. RAKESTRAW,
Pastor of Ridge Avenue Methodist Church.

Dr. RAND'S SPECIFIC is exhibited in the
form of pills, made up entirely of substances
that have a specific effect upon the generative
organs. Most persons associate the idea of
operations upon the bowels from taking any
kind of pills. The SPECIFIC of Dr. Rand is
not intended as an evacuating medicine. Its
medicinal virtues are expended entirely upon
the impaired regenerative organs. The pills
are not unpleasant to the taste, and many
persons masticate them with impunity before
swallowing them ; which plan we would al
ways recommend, as affording the speediest
way to get the effect of the remedy.
