Last night this fine play was re
peated by the San Francisco Drama
tic Company. Although given "by
request," there was a beggarly array
of empty benches facing the players
when the curtain rose. Ncverthcr
less, with a magnanimity that reflect
ed lustre upon them, they all acted
their parts with as much spirit as
would be due to a crowded house.
Those who have borne the more pro
minent parts upon previous occa
sions were up to their own best
standards. Mr. Malcolm, whose
action has been as a rule of a rather
modest turn, seemed to come out of
himself, and he gave Harold Rut
ledge, the American artist, with
good professional abandon. Mr. J.
P. Rutledge concealed his identity
in the French Count de Caroyac
with consummate art. This char
acter is undoubtedly oue of his
masterpieces. Miss Minnie Young,
as in the former rendering of this
play, was the happy and careless
American girl to perfection. Her
piquant sprightliness captured the
house at her every appearance. As
for the others the commendation
given above in general terms may
suffice. The company improves with
the mutual acquaintance between it
and its audiences.
Last evening at their residence,

STILL C0INC UP.
In the Supreme Court this morn
ing, before Chief Justice Judd, the
Wo Kcc Co., on petition of A. S.
Hartwcll, representing Chun Chan
Ycc, was adjudged a bankrupt.
Also, on petition of R. F. Bickcrton,
representing II. Ilackfeld & Co. and
31. Phillips, Ah Chong was declared
bankrupt. The Court set 3Iay 19th
as the day for hearing proof of
claims and election of assignees.
The hearing of two other petitions
There can be no doubt that in
toxication is far less common among
the middle and upper classes of
England than it was in our grand
fathers' or fathers' times. One sees
this in many wny.s. Thirty years
ago people sat over their wine after
dinner for an hour at least, and
drnnk five or six glasses of port.
Now they sit, unless some interest
ing subject of talk turns up, only
twenty minutes, nnd drink two or
three glasses at most. It is true
that more is drunk at dinner, but it
is less trying to the head then. The
number of those who drink nothing
is large, and increases daily, partly
because many physicians prescribe
abstinence, partly from philanthropic
motives and the desire to set a good
example to the poor. On the stage,
in comic papers, and in after-dinner
speeches, it is still a conventional
joke to assume that people get drunk
in good society ; but in reality the
phenomenon is rare. A few weeks
ago I heard a man of fifty, who had
moved a great deal in the best cir
cles of London and of a university
city, declare that he had never but
twice in his life seen a gentleman
the worse for liquor; and several
persons among the party present de
clared their experience to be similar.
Others could not say quite so much ,
yet all agreed that, considering how
common intoxication is among cer
tain classes, and used to be among
all classes, it had become surprising
ly rare in their own rank. This
does not mean that there arc not
still many people who injure their
health and character by the too fre
quent resort to stimulants, for one
hears many lamentations over the
practice of taking "nips" and
"pick-me-ups" through the day; a
practice alleged to prevail among
ladies of fashion as well as young
men in the city. I speak only of
intoxication, which has become a
mark of gross ill-breeding in the
society of ladies, and is condemned
as "bad form" even in a party of
It is more difficult to express an
opinion as to the standard of morali
ty in matters which regard the re
lations of the two sexes. England
used to plume itself on being n
specially well-conducted country in
this respect; but the large use made
of the divorce courts, established for
the first time in 1857, showed that ir
regularities were commoner than
people had liked to believe. Divorce
can be obtained only on the ground
of conjugal infidelity, accompanied,
if the charge is made against the
husband, by cruelty. The number
of divorces does not appear to in
crease faster than the growth of
population, so that we have no
special uneasiness on tills score since
the fir9t two or three years of the
Court's working. There seems no
ground for assuming any decline in
the mornlity of the middle classes,
or of what may be called the non
fashionable section of the upper
class. Much,' however, is said about
the fashionable section, which al
though small in numbers is influen
tial from the wealth and rank of
those who compose it, and attracts
public notico to a degree even beyond
ita political influence. People say
that not only nro irregularities in
creasingly frequent, but that there
is less decorum in manners, less re-
I servo In the intercourse or men Willi
I women, less regard for propriety in
language. Certain it Is that the
ladies in bomu of these fashionable
sets, the ninrricd quite as much ns
, the unmnrricd ones, permit them
i selves to be more ensy and familiar
! in the company of men than
would have been approved by
their mothers or grandmothers
thirty years ago. Some will
romp, others frequent the smoking
room nt the country-house where
they are staying ; others seek to join
in men's amusements, and learn to
talk about shooting, or racing. Sub
iects arc discussed, books arc owned
to havo been read, which would not
be tolerated outside these fashionable
circles. Within the Inst decade there
has arisen a group of journals devot
ed to social gossip, which may be
seen on the drawing-room tables of
these persons, (although their con
tents are sometimes scaudalous, and
often unpleasantly suggestive. Thoy
are read' with avidity by a part of
the middlc-clnss, and go even to
India, where people fancy that
through them they keep abreast of
the doings of high society ; but it is
also the fashionable class which sup
ports them, for its members enjoy
the importance of being written
about, and sometimes are not above
earning a disgraceful guinea by con
ti Uniting malicious paragraphs. Jn
n book of recollections published
lately by the brother of a Duke, he
owned to having done this, and every
body knows of others instances. It
must not be supposed that this in
fection lias spread far. The great
bulk of our cultivated society is un
touched by it. London Coir. JV.
