ng appearance. The same may be said of every portion of the transept that was not railed off as an arena, whilst the first, second, and even third galleries, exhibited each its dense and eager rows of human faces. The Russian Ambassador and a numerous suite occupied the Queen's gallery, and there were also scattered amongst the lower crowed an exceedingly numerous and conspicuous sprinkling of . Orientals. Mr. Rarey began with Cruiser, who is now a model of docility and patience. Like Col.Crockett's squirrels, he comes down without the trouble of firing. He bends his knee for the strap, and falls with case, if not with dignity, the moment it becomes his cue to do so. He looked thin on Saturday, and his coat was rough; but neither of those symptoms is uncommon with horses at this season of the year.--Cruiser, who is now the property of Mr. Rarey, goes with him to America, to assist in disseminating the new philosophy of horse-taming. After him came a chestnut, which was, if possib

On the arrival of Mr. Crockett he rushed on the stage, where the lion was running abouman Jarvey in his mouth, to all appearance quite dead. Mr. Crockett instantly seized a stable fork and dealt the lion a heabe extinct. After the body of Jarvey had been removed, Mr. Crockett went in search of the three lions, who were now roamingre all afraid of even approaching the beast. On seeing Mr. Crockett, the lioness made a dash through the pit saloon, whencek up a most threatening attitude. Nothing daunted, Mr. Crockett entered the box, placed a leather collar around her nec, and finally placed in security. From the private box Mr. Crockett saw another of the animals playing on the stage with a prevailed for some time in the Theatre, and it required Mr. Crockett's utmost persuasion to convince the attendants that no

The South Carolina troops. --These chivalrous and gallant defenders of their natal soil left Weldon, N. C., yesterday morning at 9 o'clock, to the number of 450, under the leadership of Col. M. L. Bonham, late a representative in Congress from the State of South Carolina. Col. Bonham is a brother of one of the Texan heroes who fell with Crockett, Bowie and others, defending the Alamo from the Mexicans during the Texan revolution, and he and his "boys" may be confidently calculated on to give a good account of themselves when brought face to face with the hired mercenaries of Lincoln who are now making attempts to subjugate this free land. The South Carolinians will go into camp at the Central Fair Grounds immediately on their arrival here, which was expected to take place yesterday, via the Petersburg Railroad. P. S.--The South Carolina troops arrived here at 6 o'clock, in the Petersburg cars, reaching that city via Norfolk Road. Gen. Borham's headquarters will be establish

of the Richmond Dispatch. large Muster — Speeches — the "Dare Devils"-- New Camp Ground — fresh companies — arrival of Kentucky and Alabama troops. Wytheville, May 1, 1861. We had one of those grand old musters, foot and horse, here on Saturday last. Three thousand as sturdy looking fellows as ever handled a rifle fell into line and marched out to the Fair Ground, where they were drilled for two hours or better. They were then addressed, in eloquent terms, by Messrs. Preston, Crockett and others, on the war question, and told to hold themselves in readiness to defend their rights and the honor of their State, which was about to be invaded by the mercenary hordes of Black Republican demagogues. A wild shout went up from the multitude, and two hundred or more stepped from the ranks and offered their services on the spot to General Moon, whose labors the past week have been incessant to get his brigade equipped in time for the combat. The Government would find it muc
ll the Southwestern States will concur in the propriety of perpetuating the policy of river blockade, which has been inaugurated just at the right time for us.--The States above us cannot reasonably complain that the navigation of the Mississippi river is not free to them, when they have been the first to interrupt it; and they must expect that the example they have set us will be followed by the South renewing the blockade as soon as it shall be suspended by them. The same paper says: The steamer H. D. Mears arrived yesterday afternoon from Vicksburg, having on board tour military companies from Arkansas, as follows: Etonia Guards, Capt. Martin, from Pulaski county, numbering 70 men; Crockett Guards, Capt. Crockett, Arkansas county, numbering 116 men; DeWitt Guards, Capt. Quartermans, Arkansas county, numbering 70 men; Monticello Guards, Capt. Jackson, Drew county, numbering 103 men. These companies make a handsome and imposing appearance, and are en route for Lynchburg.
Troops from the Southwest. --A part of Col. DeRussy's Louisiana Regiment arrived in Knoxville, Tenn., on Tuesday last, on their way to Virginia. The same evening about 1,000 more troops arrived, consisting of hall a regiment of North Louisiana volunteers, half a regiment of Arkansas volunteers, and the remainder of the Middle Tennessee regiment. They were handsomely received by the citizens. Speeches were made by Lieut.Col. Young, of Louisiana, Col. Jake Miller, of Tenn., and Capt. Crockett, a grandson of the famous Davy Crockett. Capt. C. has command of a company of Arkansas rifles, who bear upon their flag his grandfather's celebrated motto--"Be sure you're right, then go ahead." Capt. J. C. Ramsey, of Knoxville, responded for East Tennessee.
having published an excellent work on engineering, and secured the universal confidence of all who knew him. One well acquainted with his character has said, that "if he considered it his duty to break his neck, he would do it without a moment's hesitation." When war broke out, without pausing to intrigue for place or m ent, he threw himself, heart and soul, into the important task of fortifying the Rappahannock and Potomac. He has since been transferred to Manassas, where, as chief engineer, he has been working with characteristic ardor, in throwing up entrenchments. He is modest to a fault; not only above deceit, but utterly incapable of practicing it. He never stops to consider his own interest, where duty or good feeling impel him to immediate action. Like Crockett, he only seeks to know what is right, then "goes ahead," often leaving to others, more adroit and selfish, the profit and glory of his labors. We hope those he has recently performed will not go unrewarded.
