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.

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.

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
