COVENT GARDEN THEATRE.

There was a crowded audience here on Saturday Dig-ht, to
witness the performance of Amilie ; or, (he Love Test, and the
new Fantomime of Harlequin Peeping Tom of Coventry, The
Opera was greatly applauded ; several of the song's and chorusses
were rapturously encored. We see no reason to regret the sub-
stituation of Leffler, for H.Phillips, for he renders the music quite
as] effective as did hisj predecessor. Power commences his en-
gagement at this Theatre, on the 12th of Feb. in a new one act
Farce. A Sunday journal, speaking of this Theatre, says the
proceedings at law which Mr. Macready has felt himself called
upon to institute, are not in defence of his character, that was
wholly unnecessary, but, as it seems, in defence of his pecuniary
credit, which has been publicly attacked by the rival establish-
ment.

DRURY LANE THEATRE.

The performance of the Opera of Jocin of Arc y and the new
ComicPantomime oi Harlequin Jack-a-Lantern, attracted a capi-
tal house here on Saturday night, and both pieces went off with
great ^clat» Mr. Charles Ksan's first appearance here, on Mon-
day next, after an absence of six years, has caused a great sensa-
tion in the theatrical world ; he played at Manchester last week,
and the houses averaged £200 per night. The Dublin critics
flatter themselves that their judgment ought to be fiual, and in-
stance as proofs of their discernment the discovery of the talents
of John Kemble, Mrs. Siddons, Mrs. Jordan, Richard J'ones, Wm.
Farren, Lewis, and Miss O'Neil, who all left the Dublin boards
to immortalize themselves on the London stage. That charm-
ing little woman, Mrs. Fit^illiam, divided the public attention
with Kean, during his late engagement in Dublin, and the critics
speak of her both as an actress & a singer in terms of unqualified
praise. The Lord Lieutenant commanded four pieces one night,
in each of which Mrs. Fitzwilliism sustained the principal cha-
racter.

HAY-MARKET THEATRE.

On Saturday night the performance sat this Theatre were The
Love Chase, The Nervous Man and the Man of Nerve, and Th$
Omnibus. Power, when thisTheatre closes, will go toDublin for
a short engagement.

No actress from the mother country has ever been so successful
in America as Ellen Tree ; she has enriched every Theatre where
she has appeared, and is amassing a fortune for herself. The
following inflated panegyric appeared in The Boston Pearl of
Nov. 25ih. " Miss Tree has reached that wonderful point in
art, only appreciated by those who j udge, not from tinsel glare,

to be able to conceal all art. You will look in vain for the
rattling- thunder and the vivid flash, pealing" through the murky
air^ and illuminating a cloudy ^ky, and then being heard and
seen no more, but she will exhibit to you the even splendour of
unclouded sunlight, equal and unfailing. She will come to
you a treasure prized and eagerly watched by thousnnds, who
have obtained from her genius some of the happiest moments ol
their lives. Treat her well,fand w^ound not in aught her spii:it,
orfyou will have an irruption of Yankees against your mongrel
city, fmore to be feared than Packenham's English.'* This was
addressed to the inhabitants of New Orleans.

Ready Wit. — Phil Stone, the celebrated property-msB of
Drury Lane Theatre, asked the manager to oblige him with an
order one evening; the answer was '*I shall not give a
single order to-night." *' A double one will do. Sir/' said Phil,
speaking oo B all, with a knowing look, that procured for him
what he wanted.

COVENT GARDEN THEATRE.

Yesterday evening: the Tragedy of Macbeth was repeated
with the new Pantonainae. Stanfield's splendid Dioramic Series of
Paintings are each of them perfect gems of the pictorial art ; the
masic which is played during the movement is characteristic of
the different countries represented on the canvas^ the selection of
which does Mr. Blewitt great credit. It commences with the
Swiss " Ranz des Vaches/' and concludes with the national air of
** Rule Britannia." The overture is a very agreeable composition
also by Blewitt, who has introduced the popular ballad of "Jenny
Jones,'' which is admirably played on the cornopean, or cornet
a piston, by Mr.Handley.

DRURY LANE THEATRE.

Amongst the number of distinguished visiters who honored this
Theatre with their presence during last week to see the Panto-
mime, were Their Royal Highnesses the Duke, Duchess, Prince
and Princesses of Cambridge, Lords Lake Wm. Russell, Chester-
field, Charleville and Belfast, Lord and Lady John Russell, Mar-
quis of Conyngham, LordA.Fitzclarence, Count D'Orsay, Countess
of Blessiogtoo, Sir C. Codrington, ,Sir H, Webbe, Messrs. Dun-
combe, Bentinck, Wombweli, &c. &c. The entertainments last
night were the beautiful Ballet of The Daughter of the Danube^
two acts of Masaniello, (in which Anderson played the hero
extremely well,) and the new Pantomime.

HAY-MARKET THEATRE.

Yesterday evening Mr. Power repeated his amusing per-
formance of Sir Patrick O'Plenipo, in T he Irish Ambassador ,
and also appeared as Pat Rooney, in The Omnibus ; The Love
Chase preceded the other two pieces. The Love Chase can only
be acted 12 nights more, as it is the exclusive property of Mr.
Webster, and this Theatre closes on the 15th instant.

The Philadelphia Herald, of the 20th of November, speaking
of Mr. Forrest, the tragedian, says '* He embodies so great a com-
bination of exalted merit as we have ever witnessed in any actor
from the time of Cooke to the present moment. In originality,
boldness, and vehemence, in fidelity to all the tempestuous vio-
lence of passion, we never saw his e^al. His merits are that
he is forcible, inartificial, and impulsive. In despite of the cold
and carping voice of hypercrilicism, it must be admitted that
no living actor can so grasp aud hold the human heart. Take

him for all in all, we consider Edwin Forrest one of the greatest
tragedians that ever trod the stag^e."

A note higher. — Although the following- witty story is'not new
to the theatrical, it may be so to the readers of the musical
world. When Miss Paton was rehearsing the part of Polly, in
The Beggar's Opera, she said to Tom Dibdin, ** I should like
to sing" this song, " A miser thus a shilling sees," a note higher,'*
"Then," said the punster, '-you must say *' A miser thus a
guinea sees."

Half Salaries, — When bsisiness was bad at one of the Winter
Theatres, a pompous would be tiagedian, on receiving but half
his week's salary, said, with the utmost dignity, ** Well, if this
be the l-emuneration, I shall know how to act better in future.''
*' I am glad to hear it," observed the treasurer drily.
