Allen as ??Vir f ir.ia," Miss Alice Gray as "Servia," and by other memters of the company, forming alto fe?her one of the best casta that could be given to tbe play. G kovhb'9 Thkatbb? Optra.?Mr. Groveris no doubt correct in stating that the operatic ? utertainments given at his theater the past two weeks are among the most brilliant ever known to Washingtonians. Ceitain it is that the au dience? hare been of the most select and ap preciative character; and the operatic company is airogetber tbe best we have ever had here. This is their last night bnt two, and a? Beeth oven's master work, " Fidelio," -grill be per formed, another crowded house may be ex pected. Canterbury has certainly offered this week the best bill and most attractive entertainment of the season, for the list of performers embraces many stars of the concert hall line of business,, who appear n ghtly in song, dauce, and Ethi opian eccentricity; and the fine pantomime of ?"I be House tbat Jack Built," accupies a prom inent place upon the bill. The entertainment lor to-night, therefore, will be as usual splen did. MKTr.orouTAK Hall.?The fine entertain ments nightly offered at this already popular hall, are witnes-ed by crowds, who find an ar.enc'ance here a very pleasant way to while j?way an evening hour. Among the perform ers are Helena Smith, W. H. Bartholomew, Rob?rt Butler, Sig. Constantine, and others, who appear in a varied entertainment. Varieties. ? Fitzsimmons' new sensation play, "The Female Pickpocket," still retains possession of the boards here, and is witnessed nightly by crowds, the interest in it seeming to abate uot. Besides the drama, the regular con* cert hall entertainment is nightly given, and a flue ballet is al?o performed, thus offering a double bill. I'irccp.?Mrs. Warner's Circus, at the cor ner of Sixth street and New York avenue, is ?till an entertaining place to visit. Among the performer* are the Whitby Family, Geo. De rious, Mr. and Mrs. Frank Whittaker, and runny others who are well-known in the eques trian and ring world. Mr. Wm. Kennedy is the clown, and he delights all with his humor nud wit. Ball.?The Junior Bachelors will give their seoond grand ball at Pompeian Hall, George town, to-night, and the management promise 10 make it a splendid affair. The E.nlistmbht Fcnd Execitivb Com >i itt ke and the managers of the late Enlist ment Fund Ball are requested to men at the Major's odice at seven o'clock this evening. Meeting op thb Carpenter* and Wood w i'Kkkes.?An adjourned meeting of the jour neymen carpenters and wood-workers was held last evening at United Hall, Eleventh street, and was largely attended; Mr. Charles liillyard presiding and Mr. F. W W lu tein nan acting as secretary. ior the benefit of those not present at the previous meeting, the reply of Secretary (Jhase to the committee on the part of the wood workers at the Treasury was read, as also the ? ertilicates of various bosses, some of whom i 1 tifitd that they had for some time past been ?riving their journeymen per day, and others th.it they -were willing to give the increase v Inch has been paid since the 1st of April. Messrs. Ferguson and Dashiel, the commit tee, reported that they had been unable to get an answer from Mr. Rogers, of the Treasury Extension, to their request for the increase; but they expected that if their wages were in oreased, it would be from the 1st of April, and tiej had good reasons lor believing that a fa vorable answer would be given. Mr. Mullet (Mr. Rogers' assistant) had intimated that as ioon as th? advanced wages were given out lde tliej would be increased ou the Treasurv Extension. Mr. F. R. Dorsett here adranced to the middle oi the room and slated that he was the oldest carpenter in the room, and the second oldest in ;h? I):strict, and was the man who first obtain ed a reduction in the number ot workiag hours :tr.a an increase of wages. In lt"9 when he v as at work at the Arsenal on North Carolina ] inf. the carpenters received *1.21 per day, v crking from sun tosm;, and '.hey made appli * tson, ar.d alter six weeks they obtained a re duction cl ttie hours to ten and an increase of wnfies to ?1 50 per day. About this time he -t..r,< d as (what some called him) a "mushroom boss" and gave his lew hands the hours and .iie increased M ages?getting some of the other i ojt /s dowtion Una, and he told them that h<? wanted the children of mechanics to know that th^y had lathers; for when the hours were from sun to sun the children only knew their fathers on Sunday. At that time &1..30 would to as lar as 84.50 now He hoped that thev mifcht get per day, and he urged them to uo as they did in "-?0?po to Uncle Sam himself rnd not 'o ou side bosses. [Applause.] Me chanics, he said, bad never thought as much of themselves as they ought to. He would do justice to President Van Buren, whr, when the in i'i it ;he Arsenal had received their de mands, voluntarily established the same rates on tl e other public works. Mi. Dorsett was heartily applaud d when he h id concluded, ar.d a vote of thanks was ten u. r d him for his good advice. A man .Tom the Arsenal stated that he under stood that Capt??euton had been making in Mu.iies as to prices outside, and he had but I t le doubt but that the wag^s would be m cr ased. Srfrae of the branches of labor there had already jeceived an increase. Mr. Wm. Harmon (Irom the Navy Yard) j aid th.it the Navy Yard teemed to be the great i tumbling block, and suggested that the certifi cates from the bosses be sent to the Navy Yard. j h re ate plenty of men in the Yard whose wages are so meager that they are not able to purchase snlhcient food and doming for their children; and some of them have been und3r the necessity of taking the-ir children from .* hool that they may help their parents to sup port their families; and he asked, must we t:PKlect the education of our children because o> tside parties will not give their employees ? I'tiicient wages on which to live He had just returned from Baltimore, where he found the wages much the same as here: but the price ot hv :ng there was much lower than it is here? >2 there being equal to about ?2 5!t here. Sjrae o: the woodworkers at the Navy Yard?nil tno^e employed in the ordnance branch, g.tu <arr;ige makers and pattern makers?had had their wages raised twenty-live cents He moved tbat tbe certificates be handed over to the com mitters from tbe Navj Yard and Arsenal Mr. Iiorsett said everything would help, and to actd a little he submitted the follawiug state me; t ot prices ol some ot the principal articles oi consumption in lei'.i and ls#l: lfe?.

Mr. Harmon said that mechanics, in his opin ion, knew almost as much as other peaple, and had equal righta with others; but there has been numeious petitions presented to Congress this session from clerks and others, who receive "? 1 , ;t o and upwards, for incre ise of pay. They tmirt have an increase of twoor three hundred c'ollars but the mechanics, who receive six or tev? n hundred per year, and the laborers, who r> n ive four cr live hundred, were never m-'u t'oned. Some of the laborers at the Navy-Yard ha\e b^tn for months wearing patched clothes nmyly b'cause the Grimes bill wis in fore. i;?' mought that Mr. Grimes, when ho drew the l: l. h?.d no intention of its acting agaiust the v. orking man. In fact, Mr. Grimes had said t: at he intended the reverse. The speaker * i. d what is a man to do with four or five children, and stated that he had fifteen, one of v he m was in the service of his country; and wii-bed to God that he had more togive tor the ?ause. [Applause.] The mechanics wanted *ii increase of pay to help to clothe, feed and s.-hool their children. Tnis was all he wauted, [-evt-ral voices??'Amen,"J and by the help of i e Loid we will have it. [Applause and more ?'Amelia."J s< me one here stated that a Mr. James had t hanus employed, to whom he was paying thi. - dollars per 4a}, and a motion was made i r -he procurement of a certificate to that etVct tr^n: him. Mr. James H. Reed suggested that when the xrei tiug adjourn it be to such time as to give the* Navy Yard committee time to use their c. rtiilcatfs He thought that if the Na\y Y arders obtained the increase it would be a h??lp to those employed on the Treasury and at U*e Ar ^i.a.1. Mr. Wm. Stanford asked what was the ob ifo1 ..i the meeuug : He b<*lteved that they had ne as lar as th??y could, and the only other tmiig tbat could be done on th? Treasury was to ask Mr Ro-ers to classifv the hands Mr. l>?rnugtor favored Mr. Ueea's idea, and si gge?te?i that th? meeting adjourn till both the Navy Yard aud Arsenal m?a have had tirae to act. Mr. Keir did not see the use of delaying tioo, and asked what was to be gamed. I?e 1. y was wh: t the bosses wanted. He referred io his tfi viug attempted to get the wages raised? t e second time he pushed no hard that he * as put out, hut was taken back the next dav. J: they wished to do a thing do it Mr. Stanford ?"Thet's my style."

Pome of the men were better able to claaaif/ others than the bosses themselvea. Mr. Kerr asked if some ol the men la the ?>vr Yard who were gettlug 92 per da/ were not better mechanics tban come receiving a higher rate of pay 1 Classifying men goea by favors, and this course would ingender jeal onseg. Mr. Phillipa moved that when the meeting adjourn it be to m? et at the call of the chairman. Mr. Collison urged that the meetinga be held frequently; they would do no harm. The Ar senal f.iid Navy Yard men could go to work with Treasury men, and by frequently meeting they could encourage each other. Mr. Phillips mo'.lon was adopted, and the meeting adjourned. Conclusion of the Hci:?larv Hkarino. Yesterday Justice Thompson concluded the investigation of the evidence against the par ties cfcatged with the various robberies in con nection with Plnmmer and Lazenby. The reault was that John Claiborne, Betsy John son, Ann Watkins and Warner Cropp, l'our more of those arrested on suspicion, were dis missed, the evidence not justifying their deten tion. The Justice announced his intention to com mit Richard Lazenby, Mary Ross alias Eazen bv, and Henry Plummer to jail in default of si,*200 bail for each one in all the cases, to answer at court. Mr. Phillips, for defense, said he would apply to court to-day and have them releaaed on ?S00, as the court never aaked more than that sum in auch cases for negroes. Justice Thompson remarked that he could not think that the court, having knowledge of the number and extent of the robberies, and the character of the evidence in each case, would do any such thing. Mr. Phillips instated tbat'the court would. Justice Thompson remarked that he would commit the parties, and Mr. Philips might test the point. A Dh8p*bat? Atthmpt to Escape.?Last night, roundsman Franklin and officer Bresna lian, of the Second Ward, going their rounds, met with a party of five young men who were very disorderly. About one o'clock the officers attempted to arrest them. Franklin took Wm. Ferguson and Bresnahan took another at the corner of L and 13th streets. As the officers started with their prisoners to go to the station honse, the three not arrested followed, and called out to the prisoners to halt; and as thev did so, Ferguson tripped Franklin, who, to save himself from falling, loosened his grasp from his stair. Ferguson seized it, and dealt Franklin a blow on the bead that knocked him down, and Ferguson jumped upon him. Bres nahan released bis prisoner and went back to aid Franklin, and the two secured Ferguson. This morning, Ferguson was taken before Jus tice Tl.ompson for a bearing, and was fully committed for trial at court. Ferguson had bfen to bis brother's wedding last night and got drunk, and this was the origin of the affair. Frar.k!in"a head was very badly cut, and when he took the prisoner to the station his face was so covered with blood that the officer on duty there did not at first recognize him. Interesting Markiagb. ? Last evening, at seven o'clock, quite an interesting marriage toi k place at the parsonage of the \% street Presbyterian Church. The happy couple was Mr. Wm. E. Collins, clerk in the Treasnry Department, and Miss Annie Moore, of the Fourth Ward, the marriage rite being per formed by Rev. Dr. Sunderland. Mr. Collins at one time belonged to the 1st Minnesota regi men i. and at the bat leof Slaughter's Mountain was wounded in the knee. In order to save life am putatlon was resorted to, and Mr. C. was brought to this city and placed in hospital, where he was kindly and successfully nursed by the lady now his bride, who, at the ttm?, was an entire etranzer to the sufferer. When Mr. C. was able to be removed he was taken to the residence of the lady's aunt, (Mrs. Bigelow, 6th street,) and under the tender treatment of the two he speedily recovered. The parties being thrown together so frequently, naturally enough fell in love with eaeh other, which resulted in their being married, as above stated. Don't Deny Old Acquaintances.?Dennis Borrigan was arrested last night for being drnnk and disorderly in the Fourth Ward, and was locked up in the station-house. This morning. Sergeant Cronin recognized hira as an c!d .vequaintance. Sergeant Cronin recog nized him as the man who, some months ago, firea a pistol through the doorol No. 10 Marble Aliev. Dennis said that was the last time he w?s here. The first time he was taken lor steal ing a cloak in Marble Alley, but of that he wis acquitted. Denni? claimed that he was a New "i ork Zouave, but is discharged. He was fined *3 Back AoatN.?This morning. John Early v. as brought out of the Fourth Ward station i'or trial before Justice Oiberson. Sergt. Cro nin remarked to the justice that the prisoner was one of the "Forty Thieves." Early re plied that he had not been in Washington for a loi time; but had been with the army. The Sergeant remarked that E^rlv was concerned in the robbery of Crown s auction jewelry, and ought to be in the penitentiary now. Early ia about sever teen years old, anil his offence now is assault and battery on a little girl. He is held for a hearing.

Dr. LIOHTHILE, from 31 St. Mark Place, New York, Author of "A Popular Treatise on Deafness," ?* Letters on Catarrh," will make his second visit to WASHINGTON, MONDAY, April llth. and can be consulted at the Ebbitt HorPK for onb wbbk until Saturday evening, April 16th, on DEAFNESS, CATARRH, and all the various diseases of the EAR, THROAT, AND AIR PASSAGES." From the Rev. Fred. S. Jewell, Professor of State Normal School, Albany, !f. Y. This may certify that 1 have been, since 1814, 6ubjeot to violent periodical attacks of catarrh, marked by a highly inflamed condition of tbe lining membranes of the cavities of the head, producing a most distressing species of head ache tor days at a time, wholly incapacitating me from business, and during the paroxysms confining me to the bed. In some instances the inilammation has extended to the teeth, occa sioning toothache ; to the threat, producing hoarseness and partial loss of. voice ; and and twice it has so affected the left eye as to con fine me for a month or more to a darkened room. These attacks have been accompanied by strong febrile symptoms; by stoppage of the head, and, in the first stages, by watery discharges from the nose, subsequently becoming acrid and vellow, and towards the close of the attack becoming bloody and purulent. I have tried medicines of almost every kind; external ap plications to the head, such as camphor, gin ger, hot bandages, and fomentations of hot vinegar; snuffs of some half a dozen kinds, and other catarrhal preparations, together with in ternal remedies, such as alteratives, cathartics and emetics. These have produced no change in the occurrence or character of the disease, and, in most cases, with little or no temporary relief. I had come, at length, to believe the disease to be practically beyond either cur* or material alleviation. Under these circumstances I was led some five months ago, to make a trial of Dr. Eight hill's treatment. His method at once approved itself to my judgment, as simple, philosophi cal, and likely to be effective. Notwithstand ing the disadvantages under which he labored, in dealing with a disease of such long stand ing, aggravated by nervous debility and dys pepsia, and constantly indnced by the acci dents of my professional labor, I found the treatment reaching the disease as it had never been reached before, and producing such a modification and alleviation of its character, as I had supposed imuossiDie. I chronicle the results inus. Although I have been situated several times, so that I should formerly hava believed a severe attack of my catarrh inevita ble, I have escaped thus far; the symptoms of threatened attack have been very light, and have vielded to the remedies employed by Dr. Eighthill, without need of recourse to the old hot fermentations, or emetics; and the dischar ges lrom the head have resumed the original and natural condition. I count upon a com plete cure. That I have been able, however, to obtain so material a relief is to me a cause ct gratitude. In that alone, I am repaid for whatever the treatment may have cost me. I make this statement unsolicited, as a means of acknowledging my obligations to Dr.Eieht hill's method of treating catarrh, and with a view to aid any who may have suffered from that disease, in forming a just opinion ot its merits, and its probable utility in their own ta?e. Fkedk. S. Jkwkll. l'rof. State Normal School. Albany, N. Y., March H? ISM. Catarrh Cured. From Rev. I?. P. liustell, Lynn, Mis* 1 have been much troubled wi'h Catarrh of the worst tvpe for some twenty years. It graduall> grew worse, producing cough and hoarseness, destroying the sense of smell, and bnaking down my general health to such a degree as to compel me to resign my pastorate, and suspend rnbiic speaking. 1 made diligent use of the useful remedies, such as snuffs of different kinds, nitrate of silver, tar water, olive tar. and inhalations, but without anv salutary effects. East sum mer I beard of Dr. Liglrthills successful mode of treating catarrh, visited him, and put my self under his treatment. 1 began immediate ly to improve, and this improvement has goue on to the present time. My catarrh has gradu ally melted away, my congh has disappeared, my voice has become natural, and I am once more able to preach the blessed Crospel.
