Mr. Bourcicault took the part of Sir Charles Coldstream in his own two-act comedy of " I'sed Up." It was a thoroughly artistic performance, and though rendered more quietly than has l>een witnessed in pievious rep resentations of it in this city, was recognized promptly by the audience as a most delicately truthful dolineation of what the part should be. Mr BourHcault is one of ihe very fsw instances where a successful dramatic author is equally satisfactory as an actor. The part of Mary. by Mrs. Sloan, was acceptably performed, as were the characters generally. We must do the managers the justice to notice the admirable manner in which pieces are put on the stage, and which, in the long run. must tell almost as much in giving success to their en terprise as the really good acting furnished by the company. Miss Agnes Roliertson. we need hardly tell the Washington public, is charmingly tiewitching: but we may say further, that she has lost none of her beauty', piquancy, and sprightliness, since her last vi-*it. To her ctedit be it said, she docs not rely solely upon her personal attractions and her vivacity for success; but all her renditions are distinguished bva careful finish, showing study and a disposition to do everything she under takes, thoroughly and artistically, as well as brilliantly. Tc-uignt she makes her third appearance and in an entirechange of programme Mr John Sloan also appears in a laughable farce. ~ 1 Cfntre Makket ?The market opened this morning with a very fair display of provision in the various departments Pork was selling at Ibe scales for S7a?7 25 per 100 lbs.

Prosperi's Band furnished some admirable music, among which were seven pieces composed expressly for the oc casion. The refreshments by Ridenour were de licious. as usual. We noticed in the hall the As. sistant Postmaster Geueral, Horatio King, Ksq., President Bayly of the Board of Aldermen, Col lector Halidav, Cant. W. VV. Moore, and F. Jef ferson. I'.sq , all of whom, as gentleme.i having had much to do with the press, were naturally quite at home among the typos. The visit paitl to the ball-room by Mrs. South Worth was also deemed most apropos, she having, as the leading authoress of America, furnished such steady oc cupation to a host of printers A feature of the ball room was a portrait of Franklin and an al legorical picture rep esenting the philosopher engaged in his first kite and key experiments in electricity, and shadowing forth the future might v results of his discovery as depicted in a magnetic union of all the countries upon the ijlol>e These pictures were prepared, we lie lieve, l?y Prof I) K.

The ofiicer ordered McAleese to go away, or be would knock him down Just then some person struck the offlrer. and he was set upon i>y others and se verely beaten Quite a riot ensued requiring the interference of officers Nash and Ash of the city police, who arrested several of the party, but 011 the way to the office for trial another attack was made upon the officer*, and in the nieleethe pris oners escaped We call attention to the advertisement of Hooe. Brother &. Co. The stock of silk and fan ry goods announced for sale by them is the im portation cf one of the largest importing houses in New York Most of tbs goods have just been landed, and are of the styles now most in de mand. The prices are low. exceeding, in no case, as the advertisement states, half the cost. We presume the opportunity to replenish the wardrot>e with these rich goods at such a cheap rale, will )>e made much of. and, in fact, the store ot the Messrs.
