Prof. J. M. Maealiieter, ths gteat prtf
tidigitatenr, opened his engagement at
the Hibernian, all last evening to an im
mense audience. Every seat was)1 tilled
and scores of people were compelled te
stand. ! The entertainment was fujl, va
ried and wonderful, presenting many en
tirely new and original Illusions that
baffled the conception of the most J. acute
and close ebserver. Maea I lister's Pandora
box trick is alone worth the price jef the
admission to witness. The Professor has
a pleasing presence, and presented his
illusions with so. ease and grace which ad
ded a charm to their incomprehensibility.

About two weeks ago the Editor of this
paer and a friend -returned from the
North, bringing with them each a puzzle,
the first seen in Wilmington. At that
time it had not gotten as far South as
Baltimore and had scarcely begun to be
known in Philadelphia. How rapidly
the mauia has spread is evidenced by the
fact that in two short w.eka it has gone
like wild firo everywhere. The awful job
is to get out of that 15, 1 position,
If there is ak way put it hasi not yet been
found although there are maayj who
claim to have worked it out. If they
have they bavo not been able to give the

in that pity. E ays i -

work upon this little puzzle, this solution

Returnatg Good fur Lvll.
Fraucen Outlaw, colort'd, had Fanny
Brewingtn, colorwl, arreu'etl aud carried
before a Magistrate upa peace war
rant. But on the trial the plaintiff it
the eve failed to Kubstantiate tbe charges
made in the warrant, when the case wait
dismissed at the prosecutor s costs. The
defendant in the case then, in a truly
Good Samaritan like spirit, to prevent her
prosecutor from beiDg committed to jail
paid the costs iu the case.
Yesterday two little boys.one white and
the other colored, neither more than 13 or
14 years of age, became engaged in a
fisticuff and the little darkey, at the in
stance of some one, ran immediately to
tbe law shop of J. C. Hill,. J . . P. and
swore out a warrant for assault and bat
tery and the little white boy was arrested.
There were three witnesses examined and
the white boy was adjudged guilty and
fined $2, and the ccsts $4.74, making
a total of cos's and fine $6.75. These
figures, it seems to us,are steep for a fight
between two little boys and if both
fought why were not both fined er repri
manded and turned loose? And how can
an affray be transformed into a case oi
assault and battery?
The Debate Last Mgnt
The debate between Messrs. G. H.
Smith and M. H. Willard, of the Philo
matheah . Literary Society, notice of
which we have previously given, took
place last evening in Munds Hall, on
Third street. It was a very Interesting
occasion and the attendance was large,
select and appreciative. The, question for
discussioB was the respective merits as a
reformer of !Peter the Great of Russia and
Henry VIII of England. Mr. Smith held
the affirmative and Mr. Willard the nea
tive view ef the question. It was. decided
in favor of the negative, after a hand
some and spirited debate. Rev. Dr. Wil
son, Dr, Tnos.F. Wood and Mr. James
Sprunt were the umpires and their decis
ion was announced by Dr. Wilson.
Next . Tuesday . evening there wiTl be
an anniversary celebration by the Philo
matheans and on that accasion the prize
medal awarded last night to Mr. Willard,
as well as an orator's medal contended fjr
on a previous occasion, will be awarded. '
Guano in Baleteh.
A city correspondent of the Raleigh
Observer writes a humorous letter to
that paper relative to the guano nuisance
in that cityfand corcplains of the intolerat le
and offensive smell arising therefrom and
penetrating to the most populous portions
of the place and calls upon the Board oi
Aldermen to abate the nuisance. Hi
quotes from the Rkview tbe proceedings
ot the Wilmington authorities, whereby it
is forbidden ta store aoy such article with
in certain limits, ard humorously says of
the one vote in opposition, that oast by
Alderman Foster that "if he (Foster)
would come up here and get some of ours
"fostered and developed'' in his system
he would go back aad change his vote. '
