a'slitrht under-current of pathos per
vading his Interpretation of this char
acter which at times trives it a serious,
even a tragic tone, hut this is quickly
dispelled and the audience lllids it-elf

Tho scenery in tlio (Jatskill moun
tains displayed in tlio third act held
tliu attention of tlio audience com
pletely and rendered an otherwise
eonini'onplaco scene ilouhly interesting.
Mr. F.dwin Varrey had a chimco to
'Voino out" In the hist act which ho
did in a pleasing manner and tho
interview hetween himself and his
nephew, Mr. .lo.-eph Warren, was
very much appreciated, especially
thoir lit of mirth, which proved very
contagious. Mr. .IctTerson also touches
this last act with his muio wand of
power and tho scone of his meeting
with his daughter. Mecnie. after
twenty years of ahsence, and the
recognition is rendered the more
touching hecniiso it is done so na'ur
ally. All through tho play Hip's
adoration of his child and his own
self-ahasiMiient touches the hearts of
his hearers and sets their yuipnthios
at work. In fact, one is alinot con
vlncelihat he has s-en the original
Hip Van Winkle, so perfectly is hi
perception of the character deline
ated. The hoiiso was tilled with an
intelligent and culture I audienco who
showed their appreciation early, and
every act was followel hy a curtail,
call.' His old ailniircrs say that he
has lost none of his vigor and per
forms the part as well as he iliil years
ago. Those who -aw htm for tli llrst
time and .vent with their hopes built
high were not dl-nppointed. Tlio
only regret is that tho possibilities aio
slight of a repetition of his engage
ment in this city.
I'cw plays of this season have met
with a nio'ro cordial or heartier recep
tion than dhl Tho Whlto Squadron at
tho Lansing Thursday and Frhlay even

anil the cast compared mint favorably
with tho best productions that have

The ciirlai i is run down i n the nvno
and the patriotism of the audience is

other m'oiios fully as strong and beau
tiful and there is not a dull moment
during tlie entir evening.
Mr. Hubert Milliard assumed the
leading role, that of the American ad
miral, and his manly nppiaritucc, ea-y

. r. Milliard's work. He has not the
force of language nor that clear and at
tractive diplomatic manner, yet his
part was very -atlsfact iry executed
and particularly more sous the play
progre-sed. Mr. William llarcourt's
1'aiilo DcSirlervo was manly and most
natural, his lines being well executed
and the part , generally well delineated.
There are three ladles la the ca-t who
each take a well defined
character. yet there is bu
little senile left them in which
to display much talent, although they
certainly possess it in full keeping
with the best of tho male support.
Miss Mary Wheeler. I 'aula's sister, is
of charming personality, a ino-t clever
artist throughout, and adds nine to the
finish of the play. She Is ably assisted
