amusing farces in which Winans acts so comically, and pretty dramas wherein the little Misses Denin are so clever, have made up the bills each evening, muoh to the satisfaction of the audiences. During the comirir week quite a novelty will be brought forward, viz: Herr Driesbach and his lions, tigers, and other animals. They will appear in several dramas, written especially for the introduction of tbe animals. Broadway Theatbe.?The popular oomedy called 11 The Mountaineers, or Love and Madness," was performed here last evening, and by an excellent oast.? Mrs Blake, as Agnes, sustained the part with muoh cleverness, and the character of Ladi, by Hadaway, teas a humorous personation I ne cast was well cliopen. and all acquitted themselves with much ability. The entertainments of the evening pasted off with much success. A new and attractive feature is about to be added to tbe entertainments which are nightly presented at this excellent theatre, in the engagement of the renowned and original Tom Thumb, who will appear to-morrow evening, far the first time.in a public theatre in this city. The fame and reputation of the little (Jeneral have already mad* a" loud noise in tbe world," and many whore curiosity has been gratified by a mere look at tbe smallest and most perfect specimen of humanity of the same age in the world, will Hock forward to hear him perform as a regular aster. The Je'.uf of tbe celebrated Tom Thumb will be an event in tbe history of the stage, and his engagement here will prove a source of much attraction. He will appear in an entirely new romantio and musical burletta, called " Hop o' my Thumb." NationalThf.atke ?Great have been tbe audiences at this house every evening daring the past week, and on Friday evening especially, (Mr. Purdy's benefit.) tbe orowd was immense, and the performances went off with much fclat. We were glad to see Mr. Flynn so well received as he was. He acted the part of Thomas, in the laughable farce of the '-Secret," in exoellent style, thus proving that though he was killed off. (by report.) a few weeks ago, he is all alire, and in firstrate condition. The great attraction of the week has been Mr. Canfleld. the strong man. who has baen performing feats that are almest incredible; for instance, having a large oannon, that makes six stout men bend 6 gain to raise it, placed o* his breast, and fired off while in that position-breaking a large sized rope, (four strand, we believe.) by muscular exertion alone ? and many other feats of the same nature. Burlesques, farces, and the beautiful speotacle of tbe "Spirit of the Waters," have formed the rest of the entertainments. The company at the National is a firit-rate one, and Chanfrau, by his judicious selection of pieces and casts of character, shows them all off to the best advantage. During the coming week a variety of novelties will be prodnced, and the entertainments will oontinue to be of the most pleasing nature. Bvstox's Theatre.?The entertainment last evening was set apart frr the benefit of Mr. T. Johnson and a well-filled house was the result. The perform! ance commenced with the u Printer's Apprentice,'' which is a very good thing, and was exceedingly well played. After which, the4'Musioal Arrivals," which, as ntual, received the renewed applause of the delighted audience. The evening's amusements concluded with the laughable piece called "Tom and Jerry in America," In which Mr. Barton and Mr. Brougham keep the bonse in one eonstant roar of laughter, by their wit and drolleries, not forgetting to gire a severe hit at the foreigner who visits America for the purpose of writing a hook.* The performances were goad throughout, and we don't know of a more amusing place than Barton's theatre, to spend the evening. Broadway Circus ? The entertainments here last tvening, were as attraetlve as usual, and the equestrian exercises wtre exoelient, as performed by the oonpany. Ibe engagemert of Mr. Sergeant, together with some of the members of the oompany who had been attached to the oircas of Sands. Lent fc Co , will ad J considerably to the excellent talents of the troupt who already sustain the high reputation of this splendid circus. The accommodations and great attentions paid to visiters, together with the general character of the performance, insure for the Broadway Circus a deserved share of publio patronage. Chrisiv's Minstrels will, during the ooming week, continue their very pleasing entertainments, whiohare now so celebrated throughout the Union E P. Christy, the manager, is most successful in all hii arrangements, and tha concerts given by him and his band are looked on by all musical amateurs as most elegant, and, indeed, scientific displays of music. New Ori.kaks Skrfnaokrs.?These elegant singers are rapidly increasing in public favor Their entertainments are most delightful ones, and elicit immense applause from the highly respectable audiences tbat attend nightly. The way in which they imitate tha European Opera celebrities, and tfte original and novel effects produced by tha bone player, surprise and delight every one. They will continue their eonoerts next wei k. CaMrBEt-i.'s Miw.-trfls , with their scientific touohes on the banjo, and the other instruments used in their Ethiopian performances, bava gathered around their Btai<dard lots of friends and patrons. They are continually adding to their stock of music, and their hearers are continually adding to their stock of fame, and cash too, we should think. Thus their names are now known fm* atirl wide as a most delightful Hut of nerformers. They will continue their concerts during the coming week. MrLOOEON-Thla anng houae la so well patronlaed that enoomluma on the performancea are acarcely needed; Mill, an a matter of faot, we nuit mj tbit White n aerenadera are moat admirable performera. and all who bear them will, we are aure, coincide In thli opinion.

Irssage of the Governor of North Carolina, Both branches of the Legislature of North Carolina havlnc finally organised at Ralelsh. N. C.. on tha 28th nit., Oovernor Uraham sent in hh biennial nnugi. It oonninoM with the expression of gratitude to an all bounteous Providence ror HU great favors. It then prooeeds to itate that the ramof$11,230 had been drawn by the Governor from the treasury at various times, for the returned Mexican volunteers of North Carolina, wbioh sum, on presentation of the proper vouchers, will be refunded by the United States. The message then proceeds to the fiscal affairs of the State. Its resouroes have been sufficient to uphold publio credit, yet little progress has been made in extinguishing the State debt The message refers to the several reports for fuller information on this Important head, it appears from the message that the revenue for the present year amounts to *(W H04 60, which, if raised to $100,000, will leave a deficit of$40,000. for the supply of which the (Governor suggests a tax of two cents additional on tha hundred dallars, which, with the claim on the War Department, and a mortgage ?n a toll bridge, will prove sufficient for the ne cesslties of the State. The message then proceed* to state ths condition of ths Raleigh and Oaaton Railroad, the lawjsuits going on to reoover moneys due the Stat e, and refers to the proper reports for further information on thii head. The message advooatea tis propriety of continuing to extend to those railroads the State's credit, upon the same terms as heretofore, so long as they continue to meet the aceruing interest with punctuality The measage then, after enlarging upon ths want and ths necessity of good roads and means of transport, urges the Legislature to abandon further hesitation, and adopt at onoa a suitable system of internal improvement. First, It recommend* a railroad from Ralstgh to Charlotte, ths distance beiing about 100 miles; states that ths coal would not axoeed $1 000 000. and urges, by many arguments, the benefits and advantage* to be derived from this and other roads to be oonatruotsd. Knrther, to stir up the Leglslatnrs to improve tha means of ooaveyance, the message concludes this point by assarting that the means of coaveyanea In North Carolina are In tha same state as thay wars In England In the times of Philip and Wary. The mearaga then proceeds to reoommend an extensive geological survey of the State, after which it recommends alterations to the oonditlon of the pauper luaatlet of tile State. It then proceed* to recommend a survey ?nl public r?l< of the Stats land*, I ? ?I deprecating the holding them bark any longer for higher price* Some change* In the legal arrangement* of th? State are then renommen led. An ao> count is then glren ot tho coad'tlcn of the llt*.~ar/ fund, and iU disposition among the several schooli, for the promotion of edocation. It then .- oom,n?nd4 a revision of the State military oode, and au^gest* tho propriety of erecting a simple monument of native material, for Oeaerals Nash and Davidson. who were both killed lr. bsftl?jn the war of independence It also give* notioe. that Mr. Badger's term expire* ru the 4th March next, and it will h;? th? ilniw nf f?.? l.egislatuie to eleot another United SUtea'S?n*ti; frfin the St?te of North Carolina. The then after a few local topics are di*po??d of ooneerninjr the rteu'b* of numbers. .\c . ooncluJe* ia terms of cordial thanks and assuranoes, See. Important from Ohio. The Lboislati hk?The (Jener,tl Assembly of Ohio will assemble (says the Cincinntti Gazette of the 28th tilt.> at Columbus, on Monday next ? The Senate is a lie, made eo by the election of a democrat in the whig district of Summit and Portage. In the House, the whigs have elected a m ijonty of four, including the two members from this city, though, bv the mistakes of some of the election clerks in Portage and Medina, in spelling and ceitifying the names ol the persons voted for, the certificates of election, in those two counties, have been isBUt d to democrats. But the whigs in both counties will obtain their seats, unless the House decides directly against all former precedents and rules established and acted upon by all all parties, ever since the government was organized?rules established by the nearly unanimous vote of the members of that body, when the democrats were in the majority. Violence has been threatened by our political opponents; and the i convention of May last sought to organize the party to carry out the disorganizing and revolui tionary plans of reckless and violent m?n. Great anxiety, therefore, pervades the community on this subject. Much, very much depends on the action ! of the wings on Monday next. If ouririends falter i or make a false step, the Legislature is put in i jeopardy. It the law is trampled under foot, and the two wliigs from this city are refused seats, and the two democrats admitted, the revolutionists obtain the control. What will be done we cannot tell. The remarks below, from the Ohio State Journal, I should be read and seriously pondered upon. We : concur with the Journal, that the whigs should ' take care to ascertain what is right, claim nothing i uut niiui uiiuti 111 %r i.wiicm 11 ui u/u HI1U Itt Wd IBCieririJT I right, and submit to nothing that is wrong, i'he Journal *ays:? " A very general impres-ion hM obtained throughout the State, that violent measures will be resorted to by the democrats, to maintain the monstrous claims put forth in their behalf We know of nothing in tha character of the members e'eot of the Legislature, to warrant any such supposition. And yet, we are aware that there are men of desperate character and fortunes wbo have resolved that, come what will, their party shall have and maintain a numerical asoendanoy in the Legislature. We brieve it to be the purpose o." these men to take jurisdiction of the subject, and compel their partisans in the Legislature, no lent rolem, t? assert and insist upon the monstrosities to which we have adverted What would be the ultimate edeot o ' buch an attempt, npen the minds of honest men of their own party, is not for us to prediot. That is a question for such men to determine for themselves. We may, however, be permitted to say in this oonneotion. that there is no obligation whatever, moral or political, resting upon the whigs of the Legislature to respeot there extravagant pretentions. It is their duty, in the first place, to nee well to it that they claim notbirg but what is clcarly r'ght; and hi\ing>4one t*<is, it is no less their duty to be able to say to their constituents on their return home, that they have submitted to nothing wrong. We have great oontideace that the whigs in the ooming Legislature will be found amply equal to these duties. We do not believe that there is a roan among them base enough to pander to more partisan pretence-nor one craven enough to cower before any bravadoes that mav bs put forth to intimidate ttiem We believe they will oome up to the councils of the State with an honest purpose of ascertaining what istheright? and an invincible determination ot doing it. ' Error of opinion may be tolerated when reason is left free to combat it," but if violenaa be resorted to for the maintainsnce of error, we hop* and believe that the whigs of the Legislature will b?? iouda competent to aevise ana euioroe the ampliV and appropriate remedy " >r<at Sjnilmt!l",Vr Meotlne for Germany A large meeting of the friend* of Germany was beld lafit night, at the Apollo Saloon, for the purpose of taking measure! to aid Gtrmany in her strngglo for freedom There were about one thousand persoaspre" sent, and a more enthusiastic meeting has not been witnessed in the city. The meetiDg was organized by calling Christian Scbwarzwaelder, Esq , to the ohair, and appointing a number of vice presidents and secretaries. John Cammerfcrd wan called upon, and delivered a very spirited address, in KngWsh. after which the Marsellaise was played by the Saiomans, who wer? in attendance. The followiog address and resolutions were then read by Dr. Makle, and unanimout<ly adopted:? AUDUKSS. An important crisis has arrived in the afUirs of Germany . The people are weary ot centuries of oppression and misery, brought about by the insatiable ambition of a host of traitorous princes, who reduoed the German nation, once the most powerful of Kurope, to beiDg the tools and laughing stock of foreigners. The people, therefore, with a wonderful unanimity, struck Isr freedom. The events of last Maroh -.the barrioadea of Vienna and Berlin?proved to the world thatin Germany there were still hearts worthy of the days of Hermann, who trod the eagles of Rome under his feet. The fact that the Germans, last spring, spared and forgave their princes, who bowed tremblingly and uncovered before the people-afterwards thanking them for their oontiding magnanimity by renewed acts of treason and tyranny?proves the want of political forecast on the part ot the people, but no laok of oeurage. The fall of Vienna, after a rtrugglw that reminds u? of the deeds of the Spartans, was the result of inexperience and treason, but it cannot shake, in the least, our belief in the ability and firmness of purpose of the German penple to throw off the yoke of their tyrants. The blood of the brave students and ?mkln?m?n nf tbat ill feted city, destroyed by barburlans, crioa aloud for Ttngence, and the day of retribution is near at band. A? American citizen*, we cannot butriew with tne deepeat emotions the death rtruggle of the German Kople, whose children form a large part of this power1 nation, and believing tbat free oonntrie* atone ara our safest friend*, we ctfer the following resolution*: ? Hteolved, That * e deem it no violation of our duties, as American citi/ana, to aid by poouniary mums the dcrinan psop'e in tlitir ttnifgit for freedom, vhUe ?e d.stard all idea* of au arncd invasion hom this country.

Dr. Korkch being called for, made an eloquent ad. drea* in the German language, which was followed by another from Dr. Makle. of tbe same character. Sevt ral other speeches, in English and German, were then made, and the band disooursed some of the patriotic airs of this country and Germany, which were received with *houts of approbation. Three hundred dollar* were contributed. The meeting adjourned at a late hour. The utmost harmony prevailed throughout.
