She bad the eo-operetlea of Mr. Thomas orchestra, and that of Signer BrigaoU. Though Miss Tharsby's performances de aot at thia late day call for extended eHtielam, they may be referred to briefly. Thia artist la exceedingly M popular," aad there are-good grounds for the favor with which aha appears te be; regarded. Ia the first place, she is the fortunate - possessor of a soprano afogato a err rare -roles in the United States, and. Indeed, the world over. ' la the second place, she has a sympathetic presence aad a manner marked by much simple elagaaee, ' end . there can be no doubt that the influence of face aad bearing Is of no mean potency. Aad, finally, the lady sings unaffectedly, and, a a rule, with facility aad truthfulness of intonation. When It is borne In mind hum Ilia ting , though the admission may sssm thst there is not a single first-rate soprano, except Miss Kellogg, aow before' the AmcrVan public, It will be readily understood that the gift and ' acquirements of Mis Thuriby, es set forth above, ought to have quite j as general recognition aa they are securing. . Oa the other hand, while It is perfectly proper to assign to Miss Thursby a high rank among American songstress. It Is just as well not to overestimate her value. Her rows is of excellent quality, but It value la limited.; Its brilliancy, ahown especially la passsbls staccato, 'pale beside Mm, dl MuTaka's or Carlotta Paul's, or Mile. Marimoa'a. Her execution ia not invariably taultlsss her trilling, ia particular, being sometimes ss occasionally ta the air from "The Star of the 2forth," last Bight nothing more thaa a vibrato, while her asseadrng seals, ta the cam aria, were far from perfection. The chief defect la Miss Thuriby' s work, however, la its total lack of expreeaiveneaa. If we did not take Into account the cweetaeas Inherent to the tone of the voles, we should say that the lady piped rather thaa sang her numbers, for there Is Just a much feeling la one of the organs with which the birds '' la the Black !

The cplcac d thectre was filled to every part, aad th applaaa with Which the distinguish actor was received wst ef ac uneertala temper. It had the ring of eld times, aad it was a enduring aad appreciative a heretofore. It wee spontaneous aad enthusiast is when Mr. Jefferson nrtt cam npon the stagei It rang cheerily aad heartily between the eetsi It made' Itself felt at all the well known passages, aad, f course. It came In with crowning effect when the play was ever. Bet what shall be eeld ef the pet-formaaee f WH, criticism appears te here ceased to meddle wit H.

Of Torn WinJcU a the same Jtip aa ef yors, and a wel-come as when Mr. Jefferson first breathed th Promethean Are late th entertaining personage which the dexterous .Boaeieeett had fashioned out ef Irving celebrated legend of the Cstaiffls. A quaint, delightful thing ia the old story, with tts weird aspect aad its homely phases, Its prosaic reality aad its ; mysterious wonderland, tts fruhaiM and its age, its old-fashioned humor . aad its delicate pathoa. It came at all events of illustrious parentage, nor waa It any common akin that took the old tale cut of the dim. hazy realms of the marvelous and legendary, aad gar It personal color aad a tangible latereet. Last of all same Mr. Jefferson's perfecting co-operation, which has made Kip immortal aad give the legend of the Catskllie to eedurtne; fame I very one knows Irving' s story aow. The old vil'age Is a real one by the Hudson, Jtip Is no mythical personage, bat aa actual being of flesh and blood who slept a sleep of 20 years aad waa marrelously preserved through that long period of somnolence. Ortiektn aad MssnU and the rest are real people, and even the very demons ef the haunted mountains. In spite of that fraternal rssemblaace which provokes Jtip' perplexed comment, have almost a personal Identity. A arrange uncanny scene ia that on the highest peak of the CaUkills, suffusing the rest of the play with its weird legendary horrors. Bun everything ia Just the same ac formerly, so long as there Is no chance In the central figure. AH other changes are accidental. Orttehm may be more r lees a termagant than heretofore, ZWrwi Ton JJstkmmn may or may not have gained some additional traits of rascality, 31 nU may wax or wane in her charms, but Slip himself is unaltered and unalterable. There Is the same quaint aad subtle humor, the aame undercurrent of delightful pathos, and eudieueee are held by the spell of the performance la the aame old thraldom. The support which Mr. Jefferson bad last evening was derlvsd mostly from Mr. -Daly's old " rifth-A venue Company." Mr. Harden brrg, Mr. Davids. Mr. Msurise Barry-more and others were la tl e cast, enl Mr. Jefferson Introduced to the public of i w York Mies Constance Bamblia In the role of Ortiektn. The lady ia a good actress, with a clear and decisive sp-prehension of what ' the part requires, and kill to carry out ber conception. The setting of the piece was not amiss In any particular. Mr. Jefferson will play every evening during the week execept Saturday, when the theatre will be given over te Mr. Daly's drama Under the Oas-XJght." frllOM DELA WARE TO GEORGIA. WruilxoTOH', DeL, Oct 29. -Thig city remains In a state of excitement orer the arrest of Job XL Jackson, of the firm of Jackson V Sharp, ear builders.

At the depot a band was playing " Home, Sweet Home," and as Mr. Jackson stepped from the ears be waa met with a perfect oration In tb way of cheers and band-shaking. Mr. Jackson turned to the large crowd which escorted him and said that he thanked them for the demonstration t thattbey would near from nun in due time, tie eonid assure them that he should stand before the community without spot or blemish. A large number of the principal manufacturers of the eity then held an interview with htm, giving their expressions of confidence In bis business ln.rgrlty In the matter for which he stands ac-euaexL As near ae can be learned, the true f set about th not transaction are a follows : When Mr. Jackson waa before the Legislative committee of Georgia to make bis claims for amounts du th Jackson A Sharp Company, b gar a statement of that State's indebtedness to bis firm, which consisted of other transactions besides the construction of one passenger ear. He then received $7,000 on a note due. Mr. Jackaon ia an earnest Republican, and one of the leading one in Wilmington.

At tne date this article waa written, (March. 1865,) Porrest seems to bar been considered by maay as the most formidable cavalry commander then ta the Armies of the Senthi but he was so essentially guerrilla-like in bis method of warfare, aad withal was so notoriously bloodthirsty and revengeful, that it waa thought be would, when the ether Southern commanders surrendered, aa event then see te be inevitable, collect around him aU the desperate and discontented clement of the Southern Armies aad maintain a guerrilla warfare oa the South-western borders. .. This expectation waa not realized, for . whea the crash came, everything, "went down In' the grand ruin, and - Forrest had bad more than ' 4 n 'Mich fighting to satisfy him.. H waa aot a trained soldier, aad he made bis wsy np te the rank be held by sheer force of energy aad fight from the rank of a private, for some years before the rebellloa. (te quote from the article re ferred to,) Porreet wss wsQ known ac I Memphis peculator aad Mississippi gambler. He ' waa for ' some time Cantata ef a boat which ran between . Memphis and ' Tleksburg. As hla fort on Increased he engaged la plantation peculation, aad bcmc th nominal owner of two plantations not far from Goodrich' Landing, above Ttckaburg, where he worked some hundred or more sieves.. This was his status when the war broke out. He was known to his acquaintances as a man of obscure origin aad low .associations, a shrewd peculator, negro trader, and duellstf but a man of great energy and of brute courage. To the first caQ te arm m the South Porrest promptly responded, enlisting a a private la th first Infantry regiment recruited at. Memphl) but his qsalltle ac horseman sod fighter soon attracted the notice ef his superior officers, and he was made Cantata of a cavalry company. He took hie first les son la cavalry skirmishing oa the line ef Ore Klvcr, when Duel advanced on Howling Oreen la the Winter of 1802. from Captaincy be rose to L entensnt-Colooslcy, aad when Port Donelsoa fell before Orant, Torrest was a senior Colonel com manding a brlgada. On this occasion be ' performed hla first notable exploit, for, refusing to surrender with the other forces In the fort, he headed his brigade la a chare through the Cnlou line, cut hie way out, and aafely withdrew his command to th mountains of East Tennessee, 8oon after be made a swift and stealthy march on Mcrfrecrboro, and took the place by surprise. Prom that time until the eloe of the war be was seeeatiallr a ranger, and covered in hi raids the whole territory from the Ohio River on the north to the Totnbigbee on the south i. from ths mountains of North Carolina to the Valley of the Mississippi. He proved himself the most regularly uceeful of all the Southern cavalry leaders. This was due aa much to good fortune a hi own talents. He never had a ctod otfirer sent against him. and he seldom attacked except where he greatly outnumbered his enemy.' As a scientific commander, he was much th inferior of Wheeler or Stuarts but he had all the Qualities of a guerrilla chieftain, sad the history of his exploits abundantly S roves that he displayed them. He was swift and arlng tn his advance, stubborn and defiant ia retreat, cool and ready ia face of temporary disaster, and akillful la wielding the Urge force he commanded. Whea ia the height of hi celebrity a a commander he waa the described: "In person, Forrest is a littl over sis feet In height, and Wrongly built i apparently about 84 years of age, la the perfection of vigorous manhood, insensible to f align. Incapable alike of sympathy or, fecr. The outline of bis fane arc handsome, and tho expression Is generally plessaat but now and then, when roused a little, hi eye tight with a gleam and hia brow darkens with a frown which stamp hira with th brand of Cain. He is a consummate horsemen sad deed shot with th pistol i a soar eater and abstemi ous ia hi habits. His control over hla mea is absolute. He mingles familiarly with them, and Is ready to talk with any of them on easy term, but with 1 1 officer b ia often exacting and savage." A story is related of hia reprimanding a young Lieutenant with cuch severity that the latter, stung beyound en durance, drew his pistol. Forrest deliberately walked up to him, and using his great physical superiority to th ttermost, literally cut tne young man to the ground with hie bowle-knlfe. and then eoolly wiping the bloody blade of the knife, moon ted, and rode off as if nothing had happened. it is tn connection witn on or th most atrocious and cold-blooded niaiacrs that ever dlsa-raeed civilised warfare that hi name wQl forever be inseparably aeeoclated. F"rt pillow Format" waa the title wmen tne area conterreu upon mm. ana oy this he will be remembered by the present genera tion, ana oy it no wiu pass into atstorr. Th mssaaoCe occurred on the 12th of April, leod. Fort Pillow ta 63 mile above Memphis, and its capture was effected Curing Forreet celebrated raid through Teunecace, a State which was at the time practically In possession of the Union forces. Gen. fehennan had started on aa expedition from Ticks-burg, tn February, through Mississippi t be waa to be supported by Geo. Smith with a cavalry column, which, marching from Memphis, was to join him at Meridian. Sherman's march from west to east aero th Stat was so ran-. idly and skillfully don thst it was a mere promenade. . The Confederate commsnder. Gen. Polk,' could make no effeetivc racists nea to him. but he bent all hi energies to preventing the junction of Smith cavalry column with Sherman. For thia purpose he ordered all hia cavalry to join Forrest, and Intrusted thst commander with the task of heading off Smith.' This was done most effectually, for the conduct of Oca. William Sooy Smith seems to hsve been marked from the start with utter Inefficiency. His start from Memphis waa made late enough to give Forrest time to eolleet all his force for resistance ; the anarch of th Union cavalry eras an utterly disorganized on, so that when, on the !2d of February, tt reached Okalona, 1U0 miles north of Meridian, discipline seem to have been utterly relaxed. Here Forrest' cavalry met them, and at the first charge the Union force were -practically runted. Everything fell Into utter confusion, and Smith had to retreat, pur-sued by tb enemy for lO days over the waited country through which he had just advanced. Forrest now saw hia - opportunity for a raid Into the heart of Tcnnosoc. The garrisons there had been weakened by the concentration of tore for th 8pring . campaign, and he had nothing to fear In the - wsy of a superior force. Late in March he passed into thst State, and ths route of hia advance was marked by outrage and brutalities of the moat cold-blooded character. He captured most, of the small garrison on hia line of march, la each case summoning ths defenders to surrender nnder a threat that If he had ta atorm the works he would give no quarter. On the 12th of April he appeared before Fort Pillow. This fort was garrisoned by 500 troops, about half of them colored. Forrest 'a force numbered about 0,000 or 6.00O. Hia first attack waa a complete surprise, and th commanding officer was killed early in the engagement. - Still th defenders foment so gallantly that at S e'clock the enemy had gained no material advantage. Forrest then cent in a flag of truce, demanding unconditional surrender. While the flag waa Bring. Forreet' men : treacherously crept into positions which they had been unable ta take by fight, (a trick tha-v had played at other place, I and thua were In a lituatioa to make the assault which aooa followed under every advantage.
