E!fLAB€EUEST OF TDE HERALD.
MORNING & EVENING EOfTIONS.
Look out for the Savannah Daily
Herald, to-morrow morning and eve
ning, in an enlarged form.
“SPRING TIME OP YEAR IS COM
Whether the trees and Gardens and
Flowers have felt themselves excited to
a generous rivalry by the projected and
nearly perfected improvements in our
little journal, we are not prepared to
say, but from certain significant signs we
have noticed since our initial announce
ment was made, we are satisfied that
Dame Nature is determined not to be
outdone even by the Herald, but like
that illustrious sheet, is preparing to ap
pear before her numerous admirers in a
new suit of versi-colored garments. Now
we are lovers of Nature, (she is a lady
for whom every man has a right to
cherish an affection, and that too, with
out exciting the jealousy of his wife,) we
have always patronized Nature, in truth,
we have always liked Nature pretty well,
and we acknowledge with thanks the
graceful compliment paid by Nature in
dressing all the gardens with her love
liest flowers, and all the fruit trees in
their fairest blossoms, in honor of the ad«-
vent of the new issue of the Savannah
Nature, we take off our hat and make
our best bow. Thank you ma’am.
We are prepared to pay a small bottle
of ale to any Editor north of Mason and
Dixon's line who will make affidavit that
in this month of March Nature has taken
any such pains in %is behalf. No sir!
She hasn't done it, and she won't do it—
she can't do it. The dear old girl is al
most infinite in her resources we ac
knowledge, but she has exhausted her
self in her gracious efforts to do proper
honor to our new undertaking.
Yes, you frigid gentlemen of Arctic New
York, Laplandic Philadelphia and Kam
schatkaic Boston, while Mistress Nature
only donates to you deep snows, freezing
winds, four-foot ice, blue noses, frosty
fingers, black clouds, driving storms,
heavy gales, occasional hurricanes, and
all the chilly, frosty, gelid, freezing,
sleety, bieak, inclement, hyperboreal,
nipping, shivery accompaniments of a
Northern winter, here in sunny Sa
vannah she finds herself in more genial
mood, and distributes gifts of another
For the past few clays however, we
must say, that the weather has been un.
propitious and unpleasant, but no soon
er had the particulars of our new enter
prise been given to the world than the
whole face of nature changed. The
skies brightened, the weather mollified,
and in twenty-four hours a marked and
decided advance was noticed in all veg
etation. When we issued our Prospec
tus the Daffodils, Crocuses and Violets
bloomed with new vigor, and the Corn
elias put forth new buds, which, as soon
as the joyful intelligence was diffused
through the city, expanded into the
most perfect and beautiful flowers.
‘When we put forth a large Bulletin,
announcing the exact particulars of our
projected improvements, all the Snow
Drops and Jessamines opened to their
fullest extent and filled the air with
delicious perfumes; and this morning
■when the Editors walked in grand pro
cession, double tiles, from the Editorial
palace to their most grateful work, all the
fruit trees along their route were clothed
with fragrant blossoms. Think of that
you folks up North—Peach trees in full
bloom on the 15th of March—something
you won't see in your latitudes for two
frosty mouths yet. Os course the Sa
vannah Herald improvement has hur
ried up these little matters somewhat
even for us, but we should have been a
month or six weeks ahead of you any
As w r e said before, we heartily thank
dame Nature for what she has done in
our behalf, and if, on the morning of
our first issue she will adorn all the
Orange Trees in the vicinity with a
new crop of blossoms, we shall modest
ly accept it, not only as a proper trib
ute to our many merits, but as a capital
advertisement of our enlarged and im
proved journal, and in return therefor,
we promise, should Nature ever get un
popular, to give her a first-'rate notice,
and restore her to her proper level in
public good opinion.
Theatre.— Last evening the “Daven
port combination ‘Theatrical Troupe”
made their first appearance in the city at
the Savannah Theatre building. There
was a fine audience in attendance, and
we were glad to observe many ladies of
the city. The performances gave good
satisfaction, and save the usual hitches
and shortcomings inseparable from a first
night's performance by a company not
only new to the audience and the Thea
tre, but strange to each other, the pieces
were admirably performed. The same
bill “Naval Engagements,” and “Pet of
the Petticoats” will be repeated this
As we shall issue our enlarged sheet
to-morrow, we shall hereafter be ena
bled to devote a certain space to some
thing more like genuine criticism than
the scanty notices with which we are now
compelled to content ourselves. Until
that time we defer everything like elab
orate notice of the troupe, assuring
them that in the future we propose to
endeavor to give to each individual his
honesbduc of praise or blame.
We close to-day, with the remark, that
all the members of the company made a
good impression, which, we doubt not,
will be improved by future exertions.—
Ihe ladies are pretty, vivacious and
clever, and the gentlemen seem to be of
those who understand their profession.
There can be no doubt the company wili
be thoroughly successful.
St. Patrick’s Day.— On Friday, the
1 1 th inst., St. I atrick s Day wtII be ob
served at St. Patrick's Church, south
east corner' of West Broad and Liberty
streets. Pontificial High Mass will be
celebrated at 10 o'clock, a. in., by the Rt
Rev. Augustin Verot, D. D-, Bishop of
Savannah. A sermon will be preached by
the Rev. James Hasson, of Hilton Head,
S. C. The residence of the Clergy, situ
ated in the rear of the Church being
unfinished, a collection will be’taken for
its. completion. Bishop Verot, accom
panied by the Clergy, will move from
the Episcopal residence, corner of Perry
and Drayton streets, at 9 1-2 o’clock,
Trade Returning.— At the market this
morning were several country carts,
w'hose owners had brought produce to
maraet to sell the same, and to buy up
family supplies. Our citizens will be
pleased to see their country friends at all
times, and our merchants will furnish
them w T ith goods at reasonable rates.

LETTER FROM HILTON HEAD. j
Port Royal’ House,
Hilton Head, March 13th.
The Arago sails this morning and will
probably take more passengers than have
left this port for a long time. For the
last two days a great crowd has swarm
ed this place waiting for this vessel to
sail. It is impossible to tell what occa
sions this wish, but it is probable on ac
count’of the approaching warm weather,
and, besides this a great many refugees
are passengers by her.
A man of the 157th New York Volun
teers was dangerously injured on yester
day by the firing of the morning gun. He
was passing along the promenade, in
front of the battery, and when directly
before the gun it was fired, blowing his
hat into the water, and nearly blowing
his head with it. He now lies in the
Provost Hospital in a dangerous condi
tion, but it is hoped he will recover with
the loss of his right eye. It is necessary
that great caution should be used in the
discharge of this gun, as there is a con
tinuous stream of persons passing on the
promenade at all times.
Quite a little excitement was occasion
ed here night before last by the arrival
of the Amazon from your city. On
boarding her I found it no wonder that
she created such an excitement. She
might be called a floating Menagerie or be
taken for a second Ark. But I suppose
she does not need description to the cit
izens of your city, as they have all had a
chance to inspect her. Several of the
inquisitive inquired of Captain Dillon if
his vessel was one of the Floating Pal
aces of which so much has been read as
peculiar to Southern rivers. Ilis answer
From Charleston we have nothing
new. Everything at that place remains
as dull as ever, and probably will until
“this cruel war is over.” and then she
will never be able to cope with Savan
nah. Every one arriving here from the
latter place speaks of its loveliness, its
shady parks and streets, and pretty la
dies. The only thing that injures the
place is the fact that some malicious per
sons are continually describing what an
unhealthy place Savannah is going to be
this summer. It is a noted fact that per
sons making this remark are northerners
and know nearly nothing of the place.
The only thing I have to say on the sub
ject, is that if Savannah cannot be as
clean and health under military as under
civil rule, I am mistaken.
But time will tell, and we have not a
great while to wait, summer is fast ap
The steamer New York arrived from
the North yesterday, with dates to the
10th inst., the news is unimportant, the
capture of Gen. Early does not seem to
be confirmed. I send you files of the N.
Y. Herald, from which you can make
many interesting extracts.

Firemen s Hall. —Those of our pa
trons who are fond of witnessing class
ical tableaux ably and beautifuly repre
sented, can be gratified by visiting Fire
men’s Hall this evening, where will be
presented by certain of the leading la
dies of Savannah, a series of well-se
lected Tableaux. The proceeds are to be
devoted to a benevolent object, and the
enterprise has been taken charge of by
a committee of ladies of such stamp
and character that there can be no doubt
that everything will be conducted in the
best possible manner. The list of scenes
to be represented is given as follows:
1. Neapolitan Peasants,
2. Hindoo Ladies.
3. Cupid and His Court.
4. The Inventory.
a, The Chess-Players.
0. A Gipsey Scene.
7. Spanish Dance.
s. A Juvenile Fancy Ball.
0. Bride of Lammerraoor.
10. The Sultan and His Bride.
11. Sleeping Beauty.
12. The Stolen Kiss.
18. King Lear snd Cordelia.
14. The Presentation of Franklin at the Court
of Louis the XVI, of Franca.
The price of admission are ‘moderate,
and we have no hesitation in commend
ing the entertainment to the attention of
the ladies and gentlemen of the city.—
Should this first exhibition meet with
the success it will doubtless deserve, it
is not impossible that it may be succeed
ed by others.
