A pleasant farce con cluded the performances. To-night, the military drama of "The Maid of Crolsaev," and the amusing farce of "Mr. and Mrs. Peter White " By request, Miss Mann will recite "The Charg* of the Lijrht Brigade " The excellent music afforded nightly by W'lth ers"s orchestra is alone Inducement enough for a visit to the Theater. A SceoKSTtox ? Mr. Editor: I have been much gratified until the present at the general good conduct of the soldiers here, and rejjret, deeply. nm even a lew instances have occurred, within a d*y or two, of the bad behavior of any. For this, the Innocent must suffer more or less In public estimation with the guilty. It will give the se cessionists sn opportunity of disparaging the character of all. and the southern press will teem with exaggerations and slanders To correct this state of affairs In a measure, it will be necessary for c< mpinv commanders to limit the number each day on pass, and retain a register of their names; see that In leivlng their quarters they are so uniformed that their regiment and company can be recognized; snd, when the necessity exists for the press to make public any of their misbe havior, not only publish tbelr names, but their reg'ment and company. In this way the guilty alone will suffer. Ol&Solsiik DcsrtBATX Attempts to Fiik a Hotel ?
