Benefit of Peter Richings and Daughter.

--Mr. Richings and Miss Caroline Richings take a benefit at the Theatre, to-night.--In the opening piece, The Blind Man's Daughter, the touching acting of both parent and child is enough to draw a full house. We have never seen the pathos of a piece more fully and delicately elicited than in this little sketch. The "Daughter of the Regiment, " with the choicest music of the opera of that name, is the second piece on the bill, and gives an opportunity for the display of Miss. Richings' vocal powers, which, we need not repeat, are of the first order. The Allegory of Washington is, also, on the bill — a rare picture, and worth seeing. The house will be crowded, and those gentlemen carrying ladies would do well to secure seats.
