Theatre. --The announcement that Mrs. I. B.Phillips is to have a benefit at this establishment tonight, will doubtless be regarded by the numerous admirers of the gifted beneficiary a fitting occasion on which to pay her that substantial meed of praise which they have been heretofore ever ready to bear witness to. A "good house" on such occasions is looked upon by both heroes and queens of the mimic world as the substantial evidence be wanting to-night. The bill of entertainment is varied and interesting. Mrs. P. plays "Rachel, the Jewess," in the romantic drama of that name. Miss Josephine Parker gives us sundry gems of song as "Jenny Leather-lungs." Miss Mary Partington trips it on the light fantastic toe in the Zephyr Dance, while the Priestess in the celebrated Opera of Norma will find a representative for the house in Mr. Lamb, low comedy man of the establishment. The bill is varied to suit all tastes. Go.
Pleasing incident. --On Thursday night, after the close of the first play at the Theatre, the beneficiary of the occasion, Miss Ida Verion, was called in front of the curtain, and made the recipient of a handsome ovation.--The gracefully made her acknowledgments to the audience, and was about to retire, when Mr. Lamb, the comedian, came forward, and on behalf of several of the lady's admirers, presented her with an elegant and costly set of jewelry. Before she had time to utter her thanks, a casket was passed up from the orchestra, and found to contain a gold watch, which was also bestowed upon the fortunate actress. Miss Vernon was deeply affected at these manifestations of popular regard, and could only exclaim, with a heart full of gratitude, "God bless you all." We feel a pleasure in noticing the incident; for, judging from all we can learn, Miss Vernon is a most estimable lady in private life, and we know that professionally her career is a meritorious example.

he chief merit of the production lies; for we confess to but little interest in the "story of the play," and found the prolix dialogue of the minor parts somewhat tedious. So great, however, was the influence of Miss Bateman's portraiture of the trials and sufferings of Geraldine, that we experienced a sensation of regret that the play was over, when the curtain fell at the close of the fifth act. Mr. Bateman played acceptably as David of Ruthin. Mrs. De Bar, as the Nurse Joan, was excellent, as she is in every part she undertakes; and Lamb played the character of the Earl's Jester so well, that we doubt very much if it could have been improved upon. Miss Bateman played "Parthenia" and "Gertrude" for her benefit last night, and, we doubt not, continued to win the applause of the public. To-night "Romeo and Juliet" will be repeated. Of Miss Bateman's performance of Juliet we have already given our favorable opinion, and we advise all admirers of good acting to go and see it.
An ambitious young lady was talking very loud about her favorite authors, when a literary chap asked her if she liked Lamb. With a look of ineffable disgust, she answered her interlocutor that she cared very little about what she ate compared with knowledge. Mrs. Partington makes Shakspears say--Sweet are the uses of advertisement.
feels that its honor and reputation are now allied with his own. He will bear himself well wherever his lot may be cast. Lieut. Col. Vincent, with the Montgomery Guards and Davis Guards, are now encamped at St. Julien, the farm of Samuel M. Wilson, Esq., President of the Seaboard Road. These companies marched from the Depot to the camp ground in 43 minutes, a distance of 4½ miles. Private Hunt, of the Gulf City Guards, the sentry who shot Lieut. Storrs, has been remanded for trial before the Circuit Supreme Court. It is said Lieut. Otey, V. M. I., fired the first shot at the Monticello, and Capt. Lamb, of the Woodies Reifies, fired the second. The day is bright and warm, and the city and locality comparatively quiet. I have ascertained, since writing the foregoing, that the injury sustained by Capt. Frost is not of so serious a nature as at first apprehended.--He is at present not likely to lose his eye, and will probably be out in a few days. Old Dominion.
The Traitors at Wheeling. --In addition the elections yesterday announced, we statement that the Tory Convention at ing elected Traitor Daniel Paisley, The Governor, and Traitors Lamb, Paxton Winkle, Harrison and Lazear, Governor Council. It is further stated that Trade Pierpont was inaugurated Governor Thursday last, with a blaze of firework sulphurise, lights — the latter being especially appropriate to the devilish work in they were engaged.
u exist inside-out, you belong to everybody. Hence the horror of village life. In a city, it is not so. For forty years you live side by side with a family you never see, whose name you never hear. Six inches of brick are equivalent to the solitude of a desert. I hold these to be vulgar errors. I, who have lived everywhere, give the lie to them. The disproof follows. Attendez. One is bored hideously by gossip in villages. One curses the invention of tea, and is sorry that Lamb could not bless God for another Pharaoh to put to death all women over twenty. But do you know that I have found cities to be nothing more than collections of villages? I swear that in New York I am worried as much as a man can be even in places as small as Philadelphia, or as insignificant as Baltimore. My lodgings were in Great Jones street My landlady is the only human being in that street who knows me, and I know nobody there. Still I live in a village. Explain. Avet plais
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the meeting at Norfolk. Norfolk, Va.,Dec. 21st. There was a meeting of the citizens at Ashland Hall last night, in response to a call issued by the Mayor at the request of many citizens. Mayor Lamb, on taking the Chair, stated the object of the meeting to be, to consider the present alarming state of our political affairs and the propriety of calling a State Convention. He trusted that their deliberations would conduce to the welfare of the whole country. Resolutions were drafted by a committee of six, selected equally from each party. With the exception of the last, they were unanimously adopted. The following is a summary of them: They consider 1st. That the preservation of the Union is the first duty of Virginia and Virginians. 2d. That the stability of the Government demands a final settlement of all questions between the North and South, in which settlement they will ask no more than right, nor submit to anyth
"An Unequal Match." --The success of this excellent comedy last week, has induced the management to announce it for repetition, and it will be brought out to night, with Miss Gongenheim as Hester Granebrook a character which she sustains in such a manner as to elicit expressions of unqualified admiration.--The cast includes Misses Vernon, Newson, Morton and Partington, Messrs Howe Bailey, Lamb, and other prominent members of the company. Although the unfavorable another has kept many from attending the Theatre who would otherwise have been there, the attractions of "Miss Joey" have proved irresistible to a goodly number, and under a more agreeable disposition of the elements, we imagine, the house would be thronged every night. The performances conclude to night with the amusing after-piece of "Binks the Bagman."
Theatre. --The delightful comedy of the "Babes in the Wood" was played on Thursday night, in the presence of a numerous audience. Miss Joey Gougenheim, in the character of Lady Blanche, exceeded all her previous efforts, and received a spontaneous tribute of admiration. We should be doing an injustice were we to omit to mention, also, the fine acting of Mr. Bailey, who never played better than on this occasion, and that of Mr. Lamb, who "kept the house in a roar" from first to last. If Miss Gougenheim remains here another week — and we hope she will — we venture to suggest a repetition of the comedy, for it is certainly one of the best ever produced in Richmond. The "sensation" "Ledger" drama of the "Doom of Deville" will be played to-night, with the laughable farce of the "Lottery Ticket
