Pedigree Notes and Queries. Ishah. OsBOKNBB. —In an article on the Isham family you quote Mr. Randolph (one of the descendants) as authority for the fact that Henry Isham and his wife, Katherine, were buried on a farm near Curies. These graves are in a burying ground at Pre sque Isle—a part of the Bermuda Hundred grant, owned sufcessiv>-ly by the families of Itham, Randolph, Os borne and Watkins. In the same enclosure is the grave of ''Ann Page, spinster, Obiit 16," and sn old oak tree, mentioned in Smith's ' History of Virginia" To this fact Colonel Hi'l, of Shirley, called my attention, and the description of local surroundings is unmistakable. The graves said to be those of H. and K.

NEWS, SOCIETY, GENEALOGY VOL. 2. NO 27. Bill Nye Sees Chicago. The New York World of last Sunday contained the following from Bill Nye : Dated at Chicago Illinois, March 7. '89. Coming here as I did, from New York, I was agreeably surprised to note the cultivation and refinement one sees here at the most unexpected moments. I caiue to Chicago (from the East) fearing that I would be shocked and pained almost con stantly by the rudeness and ignorance of the masses. And I hate to be shocked. I have been reared so carefully that a few shocks would be fatal to me. Our people were extremely refined and high strung Several of my Ancestors drove their own teams and hauled freight from the depot. We are a haughty race and when irritated would fight for our honour or anything else that presented itself. The Nyes extend back into the past for hundreds of years They have occupied every position of trust all over the pages of the grocery history of their country. And so I was as pleased as a chi...

We were sorry to think that any one in this enlightened age should retain such a be. sighted theory; for though we believe that a woman's happiness and best career is passed In the fulfillment of a wife's and mother's duties, still we have so often witnessed the fallacy of not educating America's daughters to support themselves—if it should be requisite to do so—that we are convinced every woman should bo taught some art or trade early in life.

Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights and Saturday afternoon "Adonis" will be put on the Richmond Theatre stage by the Rice and Dixey Burlesque Company, an organization of sixty people, headed by the inimitable Henry E. Dixey. This is one of the finest theatrical attracsions on the road, and always plays to crowded houses. For over six hundred consecutive nights—an unprecedented run—Dixey played "Adonis" at the Bijou Opera House in New York. Mr. Dixey is a clever comedian and mimic and an adept at the terpsichorean manoeuvres ; he appears very early in the evening as a statue, before long introducing his clever burlesque imitation of Mr. Heury Irving, and dancing with uncommon grace. The whole p'ay is replete with songs, choruses, dancing, &c , and is sure to please all tastes. Standing room will be hard to get. "C.

NEWS, SOCIETY, GENEALOGY VOL. 2. NO 30. The Old Art of Dancing. Written for The Critic. Avast difference there is in the use of the drama of the long past, w hen, und' r the name of "miracle plays and moralities," they instructed in piety, and those of to day, that endeavour to amuse and entertain; but no vaster differences are apparent in the influences of the muse of mimicry, than those of Terpsichore—the muse of dancing. The dance of old as one of the most perfect graces—an idyllic art, the "poetry of motion"—now suffers the interpretation of frivolity per-onifled by those who indulge in it as a pastime, and as an evidence of taste unrefined in those who witness it as a phase of entertainment. The ballet, however, after having been denounced as tne low* st order of any performance, has recently been introduced with exquisite effects of grace and movement in many of the plays and dramas of legitimate worth.

Such a state of alarm had not existed in this usually peaceful community since the advent of Wilson's ever memorable raid in 1565.

Early in the winter of 1885 I was lodging in a large, old fashioned house on Spruce street, below Eleventh. Insomnia brought on by business troubles hrtd reduced me to a state of nervous collapse, and although I did not suspect it, I was on the verge of a serious illness. Rising one night after vainly courting sleep for two hours, I determined to take a warm bath by way of a soporific. The hour was quite 2 o'clock. Having thrown on a heavy dressing gown, I entered the little bath room and turned on the hot water. While the tub filled I gazed out at the rear of a house about 100 yards distant on Clinto...
