bly no riva! iu America, and this is probably the
last time we shall see lum ror many months pre?
vious to his tour as a "star."
It ls worth the price or admission to have the
cobwebs shaken out ?r ono's braiu by his mirth
provoking acting; and certainly no one has stirred
the risibilities of a Charleston audience like
Bishop. We take it Tor grunted thai, he will be
greeted by crowded hou-.es durlug his stay, and
