Cashier. On Saturday last the opera of La TravUtta was presented in this city at tbe Academy of Musio by a troupe of which tbe principal per sonages were Miss Emelle'J. Boughton, Mr. E. C.

Boaghton and Sig. Murine Tbe audi ence was a vary fair one as to numbers, and we noticed many of the regular habitue), among whom tbe Directors of the Academy and of the Philharmonic ware conspleuous. As to the representation, (which seems to have given cause for numerous editorial jeers and gibes even where the authors certainly were not present,) we feel a pleasure In assert ing tbe truth the plain unvarnished unpreju diced truth that it was as good as many we have witnessed of late, and much batter than several we could name which have received the atereotvned aanptlnn nf the nnu mnlv because they took place a little more en tg'lt than did this one. We should perhaps except in this asseveration the singing of Mr. whoss short-comings should however be over looked in yiew of his love for his daughter, and for whose advancement he certainly seems willing to make extraordinary personal sacrifices, such however as will undoubtedly eventually bring tbeir reward to so devoted a pa rent.

Miss Boughton's performance although of course not quite as mature a one as that of L-iuorae or noeoiomlni, was yel a marvellous triumph for one so young snd inexperienced, ana it is astonishing to see able bodied men, merely because tbey happen to bold a so-called a Cobmkb Stone or New Tawx Hall.

Tata Frealdeal'e Proclamation. Tbe advices of this morning are such ai should not only set all hearts at rest, but confirm the feelings of all true men to the height of exultation in the strength, accu- 'rity and glory of the Union. McClellan before Richmond is making hi approaches to sure victory. With his series of successes to ensure success, he finds on trying tha enemy in skirmishes at detached points, that they are demoralized, and enable to stand before the determined forces of the Union. If the Southern troops are exasperated by the rancor of prejudice and the bitter ness of spite, our glorious and intelligent soldiers are filled and actuated by enduring prineiple.

This war wuh them is no thing ot politicians or slaveholders, or of sheer impulse. They have been reluctantly aroused from their fields and workshops to aeie.uu lae great punier ui tucir Vuu.hh- tlonal Freedom and Duty, which alone can secure the peace of their homes and their present aad future prosperity. They have been challenged upon Southern ground, by the very cavillers and whinors who now raise their hypocritical and canting cries against them a. invaders. They invade but as tha Sheriff invades the dens of robbers, to re-possess for tho Union the monuments of its strength and character, the forts, arsenals, and custom bouses, which lawless rapine, with mob- I violence and traitor-bands had They invade to plant once more on the I State Houses, the Court Houses, the Public Buildings and the bill-tops, that good old flag, the talisman of peace and joy, whose symbals are drawn from the skies, and which it is difficult for the free heart to be hold without rapture.

That flag is nowmoving as the cloud by day and the fiery pillar by night over the South, and as a rebel leader said, it makes the Confederates" weak in the knee to see it. The South says it has made a sad mistake in not clinging to the old flag and asserting their right to it. They have made many grave mistakes, the principal one of which is mistaking the faith of Northern dough- r.j fn, of freemen. Some of their associates in Congress and me oonin, uuiuiuk whu iuimubiiuu to orerpast idea, with all their revelations or nosiniiyanauangerroiiiewjiisuiu.iou, and seeking to restore slavery witn all its encroachments, ana powers oi evil. These havo been prompt to proclaim dis sensions in the Cabinet, corruption in tbe tArmies, and various troubles, which give aid and comfort to the South by showing a want of unity in Northern sentiment, the National council, and the Union arms.

How barren of all force except that of I forlorn hope and idle conjecture the revelations of the past few days must show. At tbe slightest symptom of necessity, troops numberless are on the wing to the point of danger. The President after a long time of patient endurance by the mem bers of his Cabinet, all of whom have been fiercely assailed, chooses to come out before the Nation with a manifesto, the purpose of which is to relieve his co-adjutors from un. deserved reproach, and to tuke upon his I broad shoulders every weight of responsi bility which belongs to the conduct of the war. This is characteristic of an eminently good man as well as of our Republic.

Such documents are unknown to the Courts and experiences of the old world. It is too much the custom of potentate, to make their ministers the scape-goats of their errors. History turns the maxim "(lit king can do no wrong," Into fruitful il- lusirauons oi meir pernuy ana Inability to ug rigiu. cut mis "tyrant" as the whin- ing presses of the South deliubt to dub I "honest old Abe," will have the honor of I i I I I I I I I I I i I i I i I of a to ty till get and talented a girl, while they let Hint.

Un a motion for new trial, Judge storer remarked that "where a railroad company obtains leave of those who have supervision ot tbe highways, to use a road or street for the purpose ot running their cars, tbey must take care that the appropriation is not so exclusive as to take away from the adjoining Jotholders the benent of the enjoyment or that road to the highest point consistent with tbe right granted to the company. This principle be did not think was sufficiently before tbe jury at tbe trial, and tbe motion lor new trial was granted. in of ers.

of not and eral and by from have Case of Sergeant Holmes. Wasuisotoh, May 26, 1862. KBUEAKT HEM BY HOLMES OI TBB HlB A few days since the correspondence of ibe Tribans contained an item, to tha effect that the writer had learned from the Un ion prisoners at the "Soldiers Retreat, recently returned from Iiichmond, that Holmes had been hung for counterfeiting Confederate notes, being copied into tbe Brooklyn Jingle. On reading it I put my self about sifting the matter for the truth, I made several visits to the "Retreat," and found many that knew Holmes two that were in the same Tobacco warehouse with him one, Veter T. Romain, of the 14lh who made his escape at the time Holmes did, but was subsequently taken, and because he would not reveal the whereabouts of Holmes, was ordered to be shot, the time appointed, he was placed in position the would-be murderer fired a revolver twice without effect, then dropped the weapon thinking tbe fates were against him in bis inhuman act, he was afterwards ordered handcuffed' bucked gaged" and placed in close confinement, until be told where Holmes was, but with their threats and in human treatment, he proved true to the last, he managed to bring the hand-cuQ away with him.

Now with all I have seen and all I can learn, there is nothing to lead to tha supposition that Holmes has been hung, or being engaged in counterfeiting Secesh notes. Holmes is an accom plished engraver, was employed by tbe V. Bank Note at a high salary, aud if he ever did imitate one of their notes, I will guarantee it was of more value than the genuine. He bad often been importu ned by the rebels to work at his art for them, but would never do so. All the prisoners agree in saying, that if anything of tbe kind had taken place, or have been proposed they would have known it, as they read the papers daily, and they were as late irom itichmond as any one, tney thins, tne story, started Dy a person recent ly discharged from Richmond, out of sheer wickedness.

In consideration of tbe above remarks, I think tbe family and many friends may rest assured that the whole sto ry is a wicked boax, they think be may have been seut lurther south, either to sal' bury, S.

There is a great deal of congregating to day in regard to tbe future at Washington Some imagine that tbe whole of the forces from Richmond, tbe retreat of Banks, and little trouble in Baltimore, have caused some excitement.

'I he Secesh feel good and are rather bold, in most of their talk at the tables in Boarding bouses, but they must be a little careful. It was wrong in drawing of tha forces from Banks, he remonstrated at the time, but I apprehend no fear of Washington. I hardly think they could supercede as. Gov. Andrew's response to the President, manifests the true feelings of tbe whole of New Eugland, and the West, and will have its good effect, such are the real feelings of every true lo ver of bis country, and baler of this rebel- lion.

There have been many conflicts respecting the taking away the escaped negroes- Marshal Lamon should not retain his posi tion for a day, and it is unaccountable wby be should be retained. General Wordsworth, I am confident, will not allow this man to interfere with his duties respecting these poor creatures.

David's Island bas been procured by the Government, to be exclusively used as an hospital for the sick and wounded soldiers, who are expected to arrive in New York in such large numbers that the present quar ters devoted to them will be insufficient. Advices received last evening at the War Department from Gen.

McClellan an nounce that he has captured Hanover Court-House, a town on tha railroad between Riclynond and Fredericksburg, about eighteen miles northof Richmond. No par ticulars are received, further than that our loss is small, while that of the rebels is considerable, in killed wounded and prison. One of the enemv cannon was also captured. Among the reported killed in the retreat Gen. Bank's column, is Lieutenant-Col.

Wm. H. Browno, of the 28th New York Regiment. But we hope the rumor will prove to De true. uoi.

Brown was a practicing lawyer when this war broke out, resided in this city. He served as a Lieutenant in the New York regiment in Mexico, and distinguished himself on sev occasions. He was a gallant soldier a true hearted friend. On the 24th instant, in conformity with articles of organization, the Stillwater Ellsworth Zouaves, Captain J. V.
