There are people who enjoy tine singing,
even when the selections are front Italian,
opera, and again there are people who do net"
uuderstand or appreciate it." Now if the lat
ter class would refrain from audible com
ments until the singer is done, it would be
far more agreable to the former class of Rer
sons. This remark deca not - apply to To

James Jeder, an honest, hard working
colored man, was taken to the County House
Asylum for the insane on Monday last. Jim
has been acting rather queer fir some weeks
past, but no one thought bird really insa.le
uptil on Friday of the last week. Ho then
became violent and made threats against his
wife and family, l trirm whom he "had "always
cherished a tender regard. Oa Saturday
he,bcrame so violent that it was not thonght
prudent to allow him on the street any lon
ger; so at the solicitation of his friends. Of
ficer Baits put him in the station house,.
where he was kindly cared - for over Sunday.
We sincerely hope Jim may speedily ree over,
for he has a trusty, faithful and industrious
man. He had
: taken care of about a dozen
offices, this winter, and carried the keys him
self, as all who knew him bad the utmost con
fidence in his honesty. ''.
.4 Drunken Actor.
The Florence) Richmond Company, who ap
peared in Mercur Hall on Monday evening, in
"Led Astray" gave the humotoiis drama of
"Dr. Clyde" on Tuesday evening. Again
Miss Richmond won high praise for her grace
,beanty and superb acting; but, we are sorry
to ray that Mr. Vernon who took the very
unimportant cart of the aesthetic young man,
"longing for an affinity," in "Led astray" was
ao drunk the second evening that he not only
made a fool of himself, but spoiled the whole
play for those who could really act well their
respective \ parts. The manager came out and
stated the truth idainly; after the first scene.
He. said that Vernon had seen a puff for him
self in a daily paper; and, as he had never
had a notice before, it completely upset him-
The manager's frankness saved the pirce.
We understand that. Vernon received his dis
missal the same night and left for par*, un
known on the next train.

The Philadelphia T'r'anscript, thus pleasant

The field of readers and elocutionists is
never known to be fall. We hear from time
to time of now candidates for public fayor.
The latest is Miss E. Ray Yontz, of EltUira,
N. Y. This young lady, a graduate of Vassar,
is said to possess rare beduty, grace and
ability, and has created considgrable semi
lion in the northern part of the State, where
she has not only been welcorded by overflow
ing houses, but by substantial tributes to-her
merits. She seems to bo especially happy
. in
the rendition of dialect poems, which her
education, graceful presence and modetity
adorn and embellish. We shall take great
pleasure in announcing her early presence in
this city. '

five-year-old daughters of Mr. C. B. Welles, en
tortatned f large number of their little yields

' Although the inclemency of the weather forced

fifty of thi little folks assembled. and they bad

The curtains having been lowered and tigers
