Theatre Corps in Trouble.

--The "Southern Dramatic Corps" has been playing a week or two in Staunton. Of their departure the Vindicator says:

‘ The amiable and talented members of the "Southern Dramatic Corps" took passage on the cars for Charlottesville on Thursday morning, bearing with them two sabres belonging to the Staunton Artillery, and leaving behind them, as testimonials of their regard and esteem, several unsettled accounts with the citizens of the town of Staunton. Among other souvenirs of this sort, we regret to inform our sympathizing readers was one of about $13 due the Vindicator office for printing. The efficiency of the electric wire soon brought the "beauty and the chivalry" of the "corps" to a halt at the town of Charlottesville, whence they were escorted back to Staunton. On their arrival at the depot, they were received by a numerous crowd, some prompted by curiosity and others by interested motives, to witness their safe return. They were speedily, conveyed to the court-house, where Mr. Mortimer, the agent, exonerated the other members, by affidavit, from any participancy in the sabre transaction, and was himself held to bail in the sum of $100 to appear at the next Court to answer to a charge of petty larceny.
