THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH. PHILADELPHIA, THURSDAY, A tIGUST 2S, 1866. AMUSEMENTS. Tm New Cdbsnot Streft Thiatkii. Charles Dickens' prest novel, Our l&atucu Friend, havlna; keen dramatized for this theatre, will be produced for the first time In this country this evening, with a cast embracing Mis JosieOrtoo; Messrs. P. F. Mackav, B. L. Tilton, YV. II. Bailey, James Tajlor, 8. Dubois, Bliss C. Jefferson, Mrs. Keaeh, aiul little Kittle ISnker. The piece will be placed upon the stuee in splendid style, aud Will have as tine a run as Baccarat. Nitw Walnut Stkket Theatre. The wonderful Ilulslay Faintly are drawing very full houses, and the rccepUou accorded them each evening is most flat tort ug. Monsieur Ilcnil Ajroust, the great conjuror, athlete, physical jester, and pantoroimist, and Mai'lle Rosita, the premiere ilanreuse and tight-rope performer, are the favorites of the laoies and children. The tableaux of the "Watchers," "America," and "Shower of Uold" are wonderfully beautiful, and a re warmly encored each evening bv the entire audience. The "Ntaeara Leap" of the voting Titii-lav.raYii, and the "Spiral Mountain jFeaf' by Buislav pere, are too fearful for female contemplation, but their artistic execution is keenly appreciated by the firmer sex. A very pleasant comic pantomime concludes the performance each evening. The Nw American Theatre. This establishment Is doomed to disappointment. It would appear. La-t evening one Stuart Uobon, a low comedian, who bad been engaged as a star, was taken with a sudden penchant for viniting his birthplace In the "Sunny South," and when It was time to raise the curtain the announcement was made that the siar set down In the bills and bonds rould not be found The resources of the theatre were at once tepted, and an excellent melange- performance promptly Improvised. The absent "etar" bas fooled his Iriendsonce too often, we fear, tor his own good. CITY INTELLIGENCE. For Additional City Intelligence see Ihird Fage. Reopening of Tbade. From the Indications in our midst and irom the reports c our neighboring cities, the fall trade Is com-.mencine with a great, and vicrorous demand for .all kinds of staples. Early as the season is, our merchants at the watering places, and irom their retirement in the country, are hastening to the city to take measures for meeting the large calls that are being made upon them. .From every indication, there will be a heavy fall trade this season. The streets and sidewalks are crowded with boxes and packages, and the stores are tilled with customers from all parts ot the country North, South, East, and West. In dry good especially, .there appears to be a very lace stock in hand. For the past few months tl ere has been a heavy importation, and large quantities manufactured by our hom factories, aud there not being a latae demand bv the jobbers and retailers, the supply has accumulated. OwinK to this fact prices, as a general thing, average lower than the same time last year; in mojt cases Irom ten to twenty per cent, in the wholesaling. The country merchants from all parts of the interior are well represented. The Western merchants represent business in their section to be brisk and raoidlv linnrovine. Our city and New York, indeed, are enlivened by the presence of prominent merchants from all the principal oiues ol the West, and even from the trans-Mississippi rep ion. From tne South there does not appear to be so many buyers, nor do these buyers brine fuch heavy orders as of old. Tne poverty of the whole Southern people is too manifest, and there are too many scores that were run up last year remaining unsettled for our merchants to give very heavy credit or long time. Tbo general tone, however, is one of hope thatthe crops in the South will bo Detter paying thau last year, and will leave a surplusage to pay their bills to the Northern merchants. In general there appears to be a general determination to adhere to the. net cast system in all our business transactions. There are some tears that the presence of the cholera amongst us w ill influence the trade to a great extent, the country merchants having a natural mead of coming to our crowded cities during its continuance amongst u. How far this tear Is unreasonable or rash we shall not say, but it does have weieht. Even the eager grasping for the "almighty dollar," that has such hold on most of our business men, will not wholly conquer its terrors. There appears to be, in our prominent business circles, r much easier feeling in regard to finaucial matters. Tne money panic which appeared Impending over our heads a short while ago, irom the iailures in the older countries, appears to have disappeared, and on all sides there seems to be a geueral feeling that theiewill be no panic whatever. This feeling engenders a spirit of enterprise and good faith in our business transactions, that caunot but prove of beneficial etlecl iu extending trade of all kinds. An Unusually Intelligent Contraband. The fact that "poets are born, not made," never bad a more forcible exemplification than in the person of a poor old negro man named George Horton, who Is at present In the hands of the Frecdmen's lie lief Association, Walnut street, above Fourth. This man was a slave of Mr. James Horton, of Chatham county, North Carolina, until that State was taken possession . of by the Union army. He had been bat a common field hand, and had of course no instruction irom any one; but in spite of these difficulties be contrived to learn to read, and secretly procuring a lew books, he devoted every spare moment to them. He was especially fond of poetry, and never Ibrtrot a line he had read. He displayed the most remarkable talent for versification at an early age, and as toe could not wiite, he repeated his poems aloud to others, who wrote them down for him. In 1829 a little volume of these verses was printed, to enable him to purchase bis liberty, when ho intended to emigrato to Liberia, fie was anient and enthusiastic in reirard to his prospects, and looked forward wit h the greatest pleasure to hii) liberation from bondage. The following verse (admirable in their way) he wrote when anticipating his release: " Twas like tho salutation of the dovo Borne on tho zephvr through 8ruo lonosomo grove, When soring returns, aud winter's chill is past, -And veeetation smiles upon the blast. Ihe silent barp which on tho osiers hung A pam was tuned, and manumission uuf, Awav by Hope the oiouds o. fi'ar e'e driven, And mualo breathed uiy gratitude to Heaven." His works, nowevc did not realize a Buili-cient sum, and he was aoomrd to remain in slavery. It is a remarkable fact that he did not again write verses until be obtained bis freedom. Tiie caged b'.rd would not sing. He is now a very old man, without a friend but the Freedmau's Society, or any means of support but that which they afford him. He is a profound and prolific writer now, aud many vt his poems are replete with delicate and reined sentiment, line aud beautiful metaphor, and are distinguished for a remarkable accuracy ef rhvtbm. Thoe who feel an interest in intellectual pro digies should certainly visit this poor, inarm old neiro. who, beneath his homely form, hides an intelligence, a bright intellectual tire, that would have made an imperishable name for him had be enjoyed tne benefits 01 an oramary edu nation. Malicious. Elizabeth Terrls. a ?ery ex citable female, got into a verv severe tit of tlestructlvenecs yprterday, and undertook to mBBb thinss centrally in the neighborhood of Tenth and Master streets. Taking umbrage at the window of a house in that vicinity, she thrust her fist tbrousb one of the Danes of glass, and causing considerable pain to herself by cutting a series or casnes in her nana and wrist. She was arrest-Hi tor indulging In this Amusement, and committed in dotault by Alder man Tittermury to answer. Change in Railhoad Aeranoemkntb Traius for Cape May now leave Philadelphia at 9 A.

For those who are settled in a comfortable little homo in the heart of the city, this question has no particular sitrnlflcance. But with that fnumerouj class which, even in this town of steady habits, are forced to change their habitation onoe a year or more, it Is the one great question of life, rising superior even to the grand problem of "What shall we cat and drink, and wherewithal shall we be clothed ?" Pondering this matter the olher day, we took onr seat In a horse-car at the corner of Third and Walnut streets, resolved deliberately upon ieconnoiirtne that, indefinite lecaltty on ihe oih r side of the Schuvlklll which passes under the. general title of Wei-r Philadelphia. The first thing we noticed was tho tact that we were seated in a vehicle which was almost sumptuous in Its arrangements and finish. The sca'.s were certainly more comfortable and the decorations more tasty than any we remember to have encountered on any other lino '.n the city. Inquiring of a gentleman who sat. near, and who appeared to be thoroughly posted upon the ceiiernl affaiis of the road, we were Informed that the Chesnut and Walnut streets line were now running forty cars, of which number ciuhteen were entirely new, having been placed upon the road at the time toat it wa opened beyond the Chesnut Street Bridge. These cars, we were aswred -and our subsequent observation ot them exterior as well as Interior, con vinccd us that It was all tha. sober truth Hie superior to any in the city for strength, as well as for finish. And yet they weigh but two tons each, while some new cars which have recently been placed upon olher enterprising roads exceed them in weight by several hundred pounds. This item, of course, it. of uo particular consequence to the passenger, but it Is of vast importance to the hard-worked animals, whose tusu it is to drag them throuuh the streets. The cars in question cost $1150 each, and were built at the celebrated manufactory of Harlan, Holhngsworth & Co., Wilmington, Delawaie, an establishment, by-the-way, which holds a rank second to none of a similar character In the United Slates. Our curiosity with repaid to the vehicle In which we ;at being satisfied at last, we next turned our attention to the sights and scenes along the road. They were not over-attractive as we approached the new bridge from the east. Breweries, stone and marble yards, and unfinished buildings, were the most prominent features. Hut these are destined in a very short time to bo done away with, giving place to the handsome residences which must eventually till this, one of the most desirably located portions of the city. Tho bridge itself, the new Chesnut Street Bridge, although it was thrown open to car travel on the Fourth of July, Is not quite completed. The cars pass over it regularly; so do loot passengers, but vehicles ol all kinds are still prohibited from trespassing on its sacred precincts. Tt:e time will come when even these will be permitted to take the bridge in their wav, but precisely when is y t a mystery. But little remains to be done bciorc the bridge wdl be entirely fini-hed. The paving ot the sidewalks is under way; so is the iron railing. There is nothing more to be done towards the completion of the structure. Once over '.he briclgo, and one Is in consider able doubt a to whether or not he should be plensed with the prospect. The collection of Ill-favored factories and mills which Jiue both banks ot the Schuylkill is ccrintnlv not attract ive. There is al-o a nuisance in tho idiape of the West Chester Railroad, but this will soon be removed, as it is the intention ot the Cmipany to locate their depot to Ihe south of Chesnut street. There is, likewise, nn assortment of open lots and antiquated iramc bouses wincn detract some what from the enchantment of the view. When this locality is one passed, however. we find ourselves in one of the most charming sunuros on tne continent, it is nait country and half city a veritable landscape with long rows ot brick houses and looming church spires in tne distance. A more charming spot tor the residence of a business man or a mechanic could net be conceived, much less desired. Aud the crowning feature of the whole is the fact that. within twenty minutes, or half au hour at the most, you can place yourself in tho heart of a great and bustling city, at the frivolous expense 01 six and a quarter cents. The ready access ot West Philadelphia if. Indeed, its strongest point, aud the one Which places it far ahead of Ger-mantown, Chesnut Hill, and each one of our other numerous suburbs. . Even before the Chesnut sheet railway was opened to Forty-second street by tho completion of the bridge, many palatial residences were erected on and near tho present hue of its track?. But now that the only drawback is removed by itf completion, buildings are rising out of the earth with the rupidity of Aladdin's palaces: and while they rival these last in attractiveness, they will surely surpass them in durability. As an illustration ot tne impetus which the opening of the through line has given to building, we may state that lots fronting on Chesnut street, above Thirty-sixth, have increased in value sufficient to bear the entire cost of the road 1 But wlu'.e thus surmisiLg, we approached the end of the route. At a distance of full three miles and a half from the Front street terminus, we reached Forry-eecond street, the present western limit of the road. At this point the Company have constructed temporary car-houses and 6tablcs, and are now builv engaged In the erection of their permanent headquarters. These will be of brick, and equal in exterior appearance and interior arrangement to any in the city or country. They occcupy tho whole block bounded by Forty-first. Forty-second, Chei-nut and Sansom streets, with a frontage on Chesnut street of 310 feet, and a depth of 320 feet. The car-house will extend the entire length of the Chesnut street front, and will be 63 feet in width, and two stories in height, the second story to be used as a repairing shop. Tne offices ot the company will be located at the corner of rorty-secona street, on tne nrst noor. Tbe foundations of this n: am moth structure are already laid, and it is expected that it. will be entirely completed by the opening of the new year. The stable, which is located on tne San-Bom street side of the block, will be larger even than the car-house, extending the entire length ot the lot, 210 feet, and having a width of 90 feet. This ulso will be two stories in height, the second story to be used for tbe storage of food lor the horses. The building is already under way, and will be completed by tbo 1st ot ueeemoer. rue total cost ot tne im provements projected by the company will ho about $uu,uuu. wnen tney are nuisiiea the Chef nut and Walnut Streets Rai.road will be in condition to compete successfully with any line in the city. And even now, the person who is striving to solve tne prouiera, "wnere uhaii 1 Iivp ?" w ill hnd a satisfactory answer, If ne will but take a Walnut street car and make the round trip to West Philadelphia and back. Tiie Police of the City. It Is indeed a matier to congratulate ourselves on, the gene' ral quiet und order that Tcigns in our citv. There probably never was a time when such a scarcity of criminal casus was known iu our city. It seems almost as if thieves and disorderly characters had forsaken their colliug, and resolved to live in respectful submission to law and order. We do not have a single startling caso of crime to present to our readers. It is indeed gratifying to The niide of Pinladelnhians to compare the condition of our city with that of others, the compansou being so greatly in our lavui.

St. Louis, Missouri. Correction. In our report of the counterfeiting case the United Stales vs. John Mool-hart and James Foster, hoard in the United States Court yesterday, great injustice was done Mr. Michael Magulre. The facts of the arrest should have read as follows: On the night of July 2 the accused called at the public house of Mr.' Magulre, Dilliwyn and Willow street, and left in charge of the proprietor a box, which upon examination proved to contain the bogus plate and other matters incidental to thA counterfeiting business. Mr. Magulre at once repaired to Alderman Toland'a office and lodged intormation. The services of two officers were secured, and after being secreted in the nol until the attcrnoon cf the 4th, arrested the defendants. Corner Lounging. There have been numerous arrests during the past few davs for this offense. It Is a very pernicious and debasing habit, now bo common among I young men, to 6it and lounge around the corners of the streets, especially in front ot the corner taverns, and obstruct passers-by. When thus congregated together the cars of ladies passing bv are polluted by their vile language and profanity. It is with, pleasure we notice that the police authorities have turned their attention to abating this nuisance. Foreion Periodicals. Mr. A.

A Trize. Yesterday the Harbor Police discovered a skill about sixteen feet long, secreted amongst the reeds, just above Rich mond, on the Delaware fiont. The skiff had been of alight pca-gTeer, but was painted over with black. In it were one pair of oars, one handsaw, one compass saw. one hammer, one small axe, and one gum blanket. These articles are all supposed to have been stolen. The boat and other articles aye noy awaiting an owner. Slight Fikk. A fire was discovered in the premises occupied bv A. J. L'ghrcap, as a i-boc store, at tbe northwest corner of Fourth and George streets, about 5 o'clock this morning. The tire broke out in the lower story. An auger hole had beeu bored in the shutter near where the fire ftartd. It was subdued without much trouble, and the whole damage will not exceed $200. There was an insurance on the stock of $2000 in the Glob'; Insurance. Larceny of a Rope. Samuel Dummig was arrested yesterday on the charg.i of stealing a quantity of new rope. He had about twelve or fourteen fathoms ot light new rope In his possession, which he wis endeavoring to dis- rop ol for tift-v f ont.a. When arrpoted he gaiil lie hod found the rope.

It n ot her nation ever rolled up a debt so rapidly, none certainly ever commenced tho reduction of Us debt bo soon after its creation. If our currency Is depreciated, we have so far escaped tbo financial troubles that usually occur anions nations nt the cloa ot eJtpcosiT wars, and which tbero was reu-on to uppceiicnd would happen to us at tUe- termination of tbe gient war in which we hvo been en;rtged.

I do not, however,' disguise the fact that great financial difficulties nre ulill to be overcome; that our present prospetirj 1s rather apparent than real; that we arc measuring value by a litlee standard; that we aie in fact exposed to all the oaneer which p.tlend an inflated and irredeemable currency, which Oimlnuihc labor the true soiree ot uational wealth and stimulates speculation RDd extravannoe wbich lead invariably to thrlftliness aid de-juprallrn'ipn, lie'Qie hv: oouu'ry b'icames Htra'd t'Cally pi'Oapcroua, the specie standard must be restored, prices reduced, industrr stimulated, the product ot the country increased, the balance of traio between the United Stunts and other nations cease to be against us all the great interests of tbe country cared lor mid protected by wise aud impartial legislation, and all sections of tue country bo brought attain into harmonious and practical relations with the general (iovcrnment.
