Vocal concert. --We have been frequently asked if that portion of our citizens who never attend the Theatre are not to have an opportunity this season of hearing the deservedly popular vocalist, Miss Caroline Richings, in some of her favorite songs, but have not been able to answer definitely. When Miss R. was here a year or two since, she gave a concert at Mechanics' Institute Hall, and the house was filled with a fashionable and appreciative audience. If Manager Kunkel can prevail upon her to give a similar entertainment at the same place, before she leaves the city, we have no doubt that she will draw an immense crowd to hear her.
this excellent play. They have had their prejudices wrought upon, and their sympathies excited by such productions as "Uncle Tom's Cabin," the "Octoroon." et id omne genus, in all of which only the dark side of the picture of master and slave have been shown, and then not truthfully, but with much exaggeration. The "Cabin and Parlor" does nothing more than hold the mirror up to nature. In addition to the merit of the piece as a pen picture, it abounds in amusing and touching incidents, and a rare fund of humor. The Ethiopian melodies with which it is interspersed were highly pleasing, and some of them of that pathetic cast which so often characterizes the music of the sable race. The play, last night, was well performed. Messrs. Kunkel and Moxley, so long absent from the stage, sustaining their parts most admirably, as, indeed, did all the company. We trust the managers will repeat it, and give the patrons of the drama another opportunity of spending a most delightful evening.
lity of the President, and treason of the former members of the Cabinet. He said the Constitution and laws must be enforced, and those who oppose them must conquer, submit, or be destroyed. (Applause.) This was the sentiment of Maryland. Mr. Kunkel desired to deny this, but the Republican side of the House were too well pleased to permit him, and Mr. Davis declined yielding the floor. Mr. Davis continued. Whether elected by the people of Maryland, or not, I will state what I know to be their will. (Deafening applause.) He would fight disunion from St. Mary's to the Alleghanies. Mr. Kunkel said, I will meet you here. The Republicans cried, "Order, order !" Mr. Spinner said, it ill became the other side of the House to object, when they had heard treason preached. Mr. Davis repeated the assertion, that Maryland did not recognize the right of secession; and in conclusion, adverted to the report of the Committee of Thirty-Three. Mr. Sedgwick spoke agai
Messrs. Kunkel & Moxley. --These estimable and worthy gentlemen have been, with great acceptability to the play- going public, the lessees of the Richmond Theatre for the past four seasons — luring which they have most successfully catered to the refined tastes of the lovers of the drama here. They modestly put forth their claims for a remembrance from those whom they have sought so often to gratify and please. It is to be hoped that on the occasion, (to-night,) their past efforts to minister to the intellectual gratification of the people will be found not to have been in vain. They deserve well of the citizens, and we trust that it may be demonstrated to-night that even in the vortex of revolution, a general recollection of their claims is still preserved. Despite the hard times, they have maintained not only their playing, but paying credit. --The bill offered by them to-night is unsurpassed in point of attractiveness. Give the Managers a lift.
From Frederick, Md. Frederick, April 28 --Senator Mason, of Virginia, who is the guest of Col. Kunkel, the representative of this District, in the late Congress, was serenaded here last night. Mr. Xiam responded by saying that he was here accidentally. He could not with propriety speak of Maryland politics. He could speak for Virginia. He could say, however, that the reconstruction of the Union was an impossibility. Virginia sympathized with Maryland, and he intimated that Virginia was disposed to exhibit it practically Col. Kunkel said that the North dented Christian fellowship to the South. There was no social or political sympathy between the people of the two sections. The people of Maryland would submit to be governed by the action of her legal representatives. The Senate has hitherto acted as a unit, and will probably continue to do so. In the House there is considerable diversity of opinion. It is urged that it is necessary for Maryland to secede
to the Union of States; that we will recognize in the Union the primary cause of our present greatness and prosperity, and have as yet been nothing, either in the election of Lincoln or from other sources, to justify dissolution, and that we pledge our lives, fortuned and sacred honors to maintain it. Objection was made to Morris' resolution, that of Boteler being distinctly before the House. Mr. Barrett suggested that each committeeman be selected by the State delegations. Mr. Kunkel suggested instead of the words "perilous state of the country," that Mr. Boteler incorporate in his resolution the language contained in Mr. McClernand's proposition. The question was taken on Boteler's resolution, as an amendment to Sherman's motion. Mr. Boteler wished to say that he would decline an appointment on the committee appointed under his resolution. Mr. Morris, of Ill., asked to introduce his resolution as above written, as a separate proposition. Objected t
We are authorized to state that the Richmond Theatre is leased to Messrs. Kunkel and Moxley, who are now in Baltimore, where the former gentleman has opened the Museum with an Ethiopean troop, and that they have no agent here authorized to permit the Richmond Theatre to be opened for the purpose designated in our paper of Saturday. We have every reason to believe that the lessees will return to Richmond at as early a day as practicable, and from their known patriotism and liberality, we feel assured that they will take pleasure in contributing, by a dramatic performance, to the cause of the South in any way that can be useful. At present, however, no authority exists to open the Theatre for any purpose.
