Dolph Rounsaville, we learn, passed himself off at Cartersville, Sunday, as editor of the Commercial, and, of course, had a splendid time with the la dies. Felton, hearing that the editor of the Commercial was in town, strolled around in the direction of Dolph’s board ing house with an axe handle. This was more than his editorship had calculated on and so he slid down the lightning rod and made tracks for Kinrston. It is a very pleasant thing, generally, to play editor, but then there is some little dan ger, at times, also. They say Dolph didn’t wait for the Rome train, at Kings ton, but chartered a hand-car and came home on that.

The Ball at Empire Hall came off Tuesday night according to announce ment. We pseped in on the dancers about ten o'clock, and we know that we have never before seen so much beauty together as we saw in the Empire Hall night before last. The ladies of Rome will at any time take the beauty premi um, but on last Tuesday night, for some reason or other—may be it was the tran sit of Venus—they lookod lovlier than ever before. Prof. Sheffield, of Talladega, was Master of Ceremonies, and acquitted himself, as he always does, in handsome Btyle. The Silver Cornet Band contrib uted the music, and it was such as to doubly enhance the “poetry of motion.” We would like to give the ball a more extended notice, but the press of other matter forbids our doing so.

The eagle was killed on Simms’ Peak in Texas Val ley, about twelve miles from Rome. It measured six feet and eight inches from tip to tip of its wings, three feet from point of beak to tip of tail, five inches around the thigh, and its talons were three inches long.

Of the many commendations of the press, we have space this morning for only the following clipped from the Atlanta Herald,: The Burlesque Opera Troupe of Mrs. Jas. Maas played at DeGives last night to a large house. Mrs. Maas is certainly a very fine ac tress. She sang “Brightest Eyes” in German, with decided effect. The Cor' net Solo was splendid. Mr. Jas. Maas captured the house in his inimitable Banjo Solo. His version of “Put Me In My Little Bed” is simply the acme of Burlesque. He has a peculiar way of Baying a thing that makes a laugh irresistible. Monday night is their last appearance in Atlanta. We have rarely ever seen a more amu sed audience than the one out last night to see this company. Mr. Maas is as fine a negro delineator at we ever saw on the stage. He was inexpressibly funny, and kept the house in roars of laughter. Mrs. Maas is a beautiful, sparkling blonde with a face and a figure like a Hebe, and she won the admiration of the susceptible as well as the applause of the appreciative. Tlio I>o Dustro Troupe. By reference to our advertising col umns, it will be seen that the above com pany will perform at the city Hall, to night. In regard to this troupe the Memphis Daily Appeal says: The De Castro troupe gave its intro ductory entertainment to a large number of spectators at the Greenlaw Opera house. Professqr Da Castro, in his Magic Circle, exhibited quite a number of mar velous tricks, to the great delight of (he spectators. His ventriloquism is indeed wonderful, for De Castro has long since obtained perfection iu this strange science. Jeppe, in his characters songs, Blinks, and Don't But Four Foot on a Man, weie sung and most appreciatively received. Miss Fannie, in her staff-bell solo, gave evidence of a thorough mastery of the science, and evoked ’melodics rare and touching from the unusal instrument. Indeed, her proficiency is lemarkuble, and she proves herself a true artist, Auotker excellent feature of the enter tainment was the flirtation duets, Little Bunch and 'Twilight in the Park, by Jeppe and Fannie, wh i were recalled and a third time encored most enthusiastically. The audience did not cease its clamor until the manager stated that Miss Fannie’s indisposition would prevent her reappearance. After this Prof. De Castro and Jeppe engaged in the great Indian box mystery, which, to be fully appreciated, must be seen. How any man could free himself from a sealed bag and get into a box, bound with ropes, and without disturbing either the knots or the strings, is quite astonishing. This wonderful feat, however, which some are disposed to ascribe to spiritual ism, was most successfully accomplished lastnigrbt. There were other features of the entertainment equally interesting and novel, which we have not space to mention in this connection. The enter tainment was quite pleasant and gave general satisfaction to all present.
