Barrett &Co's Greatailroad Shows
We clip the following notice
from the columns of one of our ex
changes in reference..to .the big
Barrett show, 'which will exhibit
in Alexandria, Thursday, Novem
ber 20th.: "Undoubtedly the finest
show that ever exhibited under can
vas in this city visited as Wednes
day last and gave two unparallel
ed performances. Everything was
new, sparkling and vivacious, con
trasting so much with the one re
cently here that the people were ju
bilant with excitement and joy.
The stock was the finest we have
ever seen with a Traveling circus,
and it is impossible to exaggerate
in speaking of its merits, in so far
as their claims extend, for they ful
fill every promise made on their pa
per, which is more than can be
said of any circus company visit
ing the South since the war. The
performance throughout is as fine as
could be wished, the clowns (ten in
number are very funny, and each
and employe does his, part with the
precision of a well-disciplined sol
dier; and every patron is treated as
a gentleman among geuitlemen."
Such a hearty endorsement as the
above leads us to infer that we are
going to have a good show this
