Patriotism exhibited Tangibly.

--The Manager of the Richmond Theatre, on the night of the 27th ultimo, gave the proceeds of the evening at that popular establishment for the benefit of the Hampton sufferers. The night was inclement, and the kind feelings of the Manager were not allowed to develop themselves as fully as his generous wishes would have desired. The writer learns, however, that at some future day this patriotic gentleman, John H. Hewitt, Esq., (and who has not heard of Hewitt, the popular composer, play writer, and poet?) designs giving another benefit for the same purpose.

Two hundred and fifty dollars were, nevertheless, raised on the occasions above referred to, the proprietress of the house giving $50, and Miss Ella Wren, Miss Jennie Powell, Miss M Johnson, Mr. E. R. Dalton, and Mr. R. Ogden generously throwing in their salaries.

It must be gratifying to all who can feel for the suffering ones of Hampton that the Corps Dramatique. of Richmond, are not behind any in sympathy or in material aid to the peculiarly afflicted refugees from that once beautiful but now desolated town.

The sum ($250) referred to awaits an order from any properly appointed receiver to be immediately appropriated. Notitia.
