FANCHON THE CRICKET.
This beautiful play 60 long iden
tified witli Maggie Mitchell's name,
was presented at Music Hall last
evening by tho San Francisco Dra
matic Company. The audience was
not so large as the excellent perfor
mance merited. The company one
and all are to be congratulated on
their great success. The piece was
well put on the stage, and not a
hitch occurred throughout the even
ins:. Of course, Miss Heath as
Fanchou was the centre of attraction.
It may not be generally known, but
the lady has starred in the
States in this role. Her perfor
mance last evening was a great
surprise to the audience, and it is a
long time since Honolulu was
treated to such a fine piece of acting.
Her shadow dance was extremely
well given, and at the conclusion of
the first act she was compelled to
appear before tho curtain in res
ponse to an enthusiastic demand
from the audience. Mr. Stetson aa
the lover Landry, in opposition to
Ills father's wish, gave a faithful
lendition of tho character. Mr.
Willie SimniH Landry's, as simple twin
brother Didicr, created any amount
of fun by his inimitable personation
of the part, and it is to be hoped
" we shall not lose him " yet awhile.
Father Barbeaud was well and faith
fully acted by Mr. Rutledge, and
Mr. Morrison as Caillard made
everything of his part. Miss Ingham
as the old mother and Mis3 Young
as Madclin were everything that
could be desired in their respective
parts. The Maypolo dance in the
second act was unique and delighted
tho audience. It in sufficient praise
of tho performance to say that tho
interest of tho audience- was en
chained throughout, and was fre
quently raised to an enthusiastic (
pitch, when it broko out in long and
loud applause. Several times Fan
chon compelled an ovation by her
sprightly acting and emotional ex
pression. The orchestra titular Mr.
Berger's leadership was particularly
duo last evening.

Most of the Democratic papers of
New York arc surprised at the selec
tion of Phelps and the ignoring of
The Sun says no political reason
is apparent for giving the oflice to a
citizen of Vermont, as that State is
hopelessly Republican. While it
considers Phelps not unequal to tho
position, yet it sa3s it is certain that
he cannot perform those social, post
prandial and scmi-litcrar' duties in
which Lowell mado himself the most
popular man in England.
From interviews the Herald gives
the following opinions: Hubert O.
Thompson: "The nomination of
Phelps of Vermont as Minister to
Great Britain is a great disappoint
ment to every Democrat in this
State." George William Curtis
considered that the new appointee
would be placed in striking contrast
with Lowell, who had performed his
duties with great ability, wisdom
and patriotism. A well-known law
yer: "The finest mission in the
heap has gone to 'Vairmount,' the
most hide-bound and moss-grown
State in the Union. It is a warning
to politicians that they may as well
take down their banners from the
outer walls and cut them up into
bandages or shrouds."
The Tribune gives an extract from
a speech made by Phelps in 18C4,
showing that he called Lincoln " a
wooden-head, twentieth-rate, back
country attorney," and declared the
North was fighting simply to turn
loose "all niggers," and "white
wash the nigger in the blood of
millions." At the same time the
Tribune agrees with Eastern journ
als that the nomination is acceptable.
Tho papers that are debating the
old question as to the expression " I
guess" being an Americanism, will
find it useful to consult a concord
ance of Shakespeare. The greatest
dramatist employs tho word many
times in its present accepted moaning
in this country. lioston Herald.
"Dear little man wltii the slender legs,
Man with the long, long hair,
Why do you dunce on your slender pegs?
Why do your rant and rear?
Why do you howl and mutter so?
Why do you clench your list?"

In fitructiue lie is the picture of great muscular power, ami Fn appearance, tem
perament and disposition, lie is faultless. Full of lire and getitlciics, he is with
out speck or blemish. As a stock horse ho is having extiaordinary success; his
numerous progeny, botli In California and in this country, attest this fact, several
of them being able to trot low down, mid one of his daughters (Venus) can tiot
in 2.25. Venus is also the dam of Transit, which is said to be the most promising
two-year-old in California. He trotted a mile last season, as u yearling, in 2.45.

Ill offering tho mh vices of this horno to the public I make one claim for him,
which is that he in the highest bred dotting stallion in the world, living or dead,
and in suppoit of this claim I mn willing to submit it to any authority that can hi
obtained, and if In- li not, then I will foifeit all my claims to horse knowledge. It
will bo soon that his pedigiee lopuenti a union of the purest blood of tho English
and American thnroiiglibiod racer, one of his grand dams, as iiKo out; of hi gieat
"land dams being imported fioin England to the United States. When Vcutiiru
win on tho turf, about eight years ago,' he was at that time tho sensational horso of
thu Pacilli! Coai-t, and tho sporting papers in the East, that were always so much
opposed to i nulling blood in the trotter, commenced picking away at his pedigree,
trying to find a colli eni's in it, at tho s.uno timo declaring that it was simply im-poi-iblo
for :t strictly thoroughbred hor-o to trot as fast as lie was then tiottlug;
but at last they had "to give it up, and admitted thu fact that he was a sti Icily
thoroughbred horse, but declared him a phenomenon, and u-ro unable to account
for his great speed at the trotting gait. JJut the fame of his she, old Ueliuoiit, Is
almost world-wide, and It Is a well-known fact his blood nicked better with thu
trotting families than that of any other thoroughbred lior.se ever known, as, In
addition to Venture, two other tlioioiighbred sons of his, Capt. Webster and Owen
Dale, wciu said to have possessed great speed at the trot. Jlesidcs these, he sired
the dams of Hello Echo, 2:20; Flora Sliepheul, 2:!J0; Monarch. 2:28; Xelly
J'atclii'n. StSTI'f; nintic, 2:30; which is a showing that a great many of the best
tiottin" bred liorcs cannot equal. Mr. Patrick Ftirrcll, who Is ono of the most
experienced drivers on the Pacltlc Coast, told mu tho last time that I sawhlm, that
Venture was tho fastest Hotter that ho over pulled a lino over, and that if his
temper hart not been xourcd in his youth by bad handling, ho believed that ho
would have equaled, If not surpassed, all tho rocouls ever made, and that he could
shown two-mlnuto gait with liuu to a wagon, but in company ho would become
wild on account of his hot blood, and was often beaten by horses that could hardly
run as fast as ho could tint, ills lecoiu oi -j:-'i,'5 which was no measure oi nis
speed, was mado at tlio Oakland track in 1877. In a race which hu won, beating
Alexander, Gus, Ucucral Jteno and Hilly Ilayward, this being his l.ibt public
It is thought by conio people that an aged horro Is not as good a producer as a
youii" one, but no gi eater mUtiiKo.i'otild pos-ibly bo made, indeed, the opposlto
is claTmed by many largo hicodoin, and liitaiicis are so numerous of horcs siring
their best foals at an advanced ago that thu abovu theory ha long ago been ex
ploded. Imported Dloiiii-d was tweiity-soveu yeais old when ho shed Sir Archy,
hU best son; Uonnio Scotland, who died only a few years ago, shed Luke Hlack
burii and (icoigo Kinney, by far tho bed of ills get, after ho was twenty-live; lm
iioi ted Leamington shed Iroquoln, his best son, tho last year that hu lived, at
twenty-live. Among lioltors may ho mentioned Volunteer, tho shu of St. Jullen,
who Is thlrty-oiiu years old this spilng, and is said to be as lively nnd vlgoious as
lio over was, and Ills voung foals as piouiMng as any that ho ever got. Old Ha
miltoulau died in March, 1870, aged twcniy-suvcii years, but sired two foals tho
last days of his life, and ono of tlimii, called Huiutlloiihin's last, iniidu a trotting
lt'coid of 2:251 the past season, and the other ono Is said to bo equally as fast.
With thoso facts before us, it is plain that the ago of a horso has nothing to do
with his success as a she. 1 think myself that thero Is a great deal In tiie condi
tion that a horso Is kept, for an animal that Is well-fed and cared for, with plenty
of exercise, will beget better foals than ono that l.s turned loose and never stabled
Ventuio' Is twenty-two years old this spring, and with the care that I Intend
to give him, I expect him to she better foals than ho ever has before. Hu Is a
lcinarkably sure breeder. Mr. Campbell assures mu that he has neer bred a
iniuu to him yet that did not produce a foal, anil his many beautiful colts, now on
Mr. U.'s ranch, are worth a long journey to see; and now as ho Is to bo kept so
convenient to tho general public, no ono owning a good maio should he so blind to
their own luteioat as to neglect the opportunity of obtaining his blood while they
have the chance.
For any additional partlculais apply at Punchbowl and Queen streets.
