orning. I perceive no change, except, perhaps, a diminution of troops, which seems to confirm the reports of recent battles, and the probable success of Lee and Johnston. But all is doubt and uncertainty. The military authorities are still reticent regarding the fate of those remaining in Richmond. We are at their mercy, and prepared for our fate. I except some of our ladies, who are hysterical, and want to set out on foot for the Confederacy. April 7 Slight showers. Wm. Ira Smith, tailor, and part owner of the Whig, has continued the publication as a Union paper. I visited the awful crater of the magazine. One current or stream of fire and bricks knocked down the east wall of the cemetery, and swept away many head and foot stones, demolishing trees, plants, etc. It is said President Lincoln is still in the city. Dr. Ellison informed me to-day of the prospect of Judge Campbell's conference with Mr. Lincoln. It appears that the judge had prepared statist

ed from Illinois-town to the Health Office. A physician was called in, and endeavored to pull out the weapon with a small pair of forceps or pincers. He applied the pincers some half a dozen times, and pulled with all the strength he could command, but so firmly was the steel transfixed in the bone that the pincers invariably slipped off, and the "claws finally became injured in such a manner that the pincers were rendered useless. The Doctor endeavored to loosen the weapon in a variety of ways, but to no purpose. It had been driven in with so much force that it was even more strongly transfixed in the bone than a nail driven into a stick of wood. Dr. Smith finally procured a pair of shoemaker's nippers and made another effort. After one or two trials he succeeded in securing a good "purchase" upon the weapon and extracted it. It measured in all five inches--three inches of which had penetrated the spinal column, and there remained firmly imbedded for twelve or fourteen hours.
Elephantine Gambols. --One of the elephants connected with Smith's Menagerie, now wintering at Norwalk, got out of the bars the other night, by breaking down the doors, passed across a field, walked off with a gate, went to a house and rapped on the window, sending the family flying out of the door through fright, and then helped herself to a heap of apples in the yard. Her keeper appeared and the huge animal quietly followed him to her quarters, with her trunk full of pippins.
onference, Rev. Messrs. Coulling and Langhorne discussed the matter. Mr. Branch, of Petersburg, advocated the adoption of the report, and declared that the plan adopted by the Petersburg Quarterly Conference was the proper one. Rev. Dr. Smith thought that willingness to contribute had sometimes been mistaken for ability to contribute, by the district stewards, and as the cities were generally more willing to pay, they were sometimes indiscreetly assessed. Rev. Mr. Langhorne agreed with Dr. Smith, and the language of the resolutions, that numbers and ability should be estimated as a financial basis. He spoke with some spirit in regard to the manner in which Presiding Elders were sometimes met. The stationed preacher got all, and the Elder, if he was not present at the quarterly meeting, was left to "suck his fingers, " and got nothing. Rev. Dr. Lee took occasion, in his remarks, to speak of the covetousness of the Church and of the age. Rev. Mr. Bennett, i
re and Mad. Pretti, sopranos; Mlle. Lacombe, mezzo-soprano; Philippe, Methuen and Debrinay, tenors; Melchizedek and General, bassos. The Norma of last night was the best cast of that piece ever exhibited in New Orleans. In the theatres we have good companies.--At the Varieties, of which John Owen is manager, you may judge of the strength of the company by hearing that among the names are Chas. Bass, once of your theatre; George Jordan, of side-whisker memory; A. H. Davenport, and Mark Smith. Miss Charlotte Thompson is the leading woman, but the feminine attraction of the company is a Mrs. Leighton, the comedienne. She is an extraordinary actress. The Nixon &Co.'s "world-wide," &c., Circus is now at the St. Charles Theatre, Debar having taken his company in the meantime to Vicksburg. A live hippopotamus at Spalding's Museum is another attraction even more novel than anything in the theatrical way. Gov. Moore reviewed the militia today, which turned out in good numbers,
The Panorama of Dr. Kane's Arctic Expedition, painted by George Heilge, is now on exhibition at Metropolitan Hall. It was copied from the original drawings of that famous voyage, and many scenes of thrilling interest are introduced. Quite an excitement was occasioned on the streets yesterday by the appearance of an omnibus, on the top of which stood one of the voyagers, dressed in the style peculiar to the polar regions, accompanied by an Esquimaux dog. Smith's Band occupied the inside of the vehicle.
Funeral. --The members of the orders of Odd Fellows and Red Men yesterday attended the funeral of the late Thomas Kendrick, whose early decease is generally regretted. Smith's Hand accompanied the procession.
Complimentary Dinner to the Bell and Everett Electors.--the Bell and Everett Club of this city gave a banquet to the Electors, on Wednesday night, at the Exchange Hotel. Wm. H. MacFARLANDarland, Esq., presided, assisted by the following vice Presidents: Wyatt M. Elliott. A. B. Guigon, Jas. McDonald, Thos. J. Evans, Thos. Vaiden, Dr. Z. S. McGruder and David I. Burr. Smith's Band furnished music for the occasion. after some time had been spent in discussing the luxuries on the tables, the President called the assemblage to order, and proceeded to announce the regular toasts: 1st. Washington — His praise is on the line of his children. They insult his memory who forget his parting advice. [Drank standing. Music-- "Washington's March."] 2d. The Fathers of the Republic--They have not "eaten sour grapes, but the children's teeth are set on edge." Let those rebellious children who betray the Constitution suffer alone the punishment of their own faults. (Music--
