?ootrr* Farewell Por?orcn?.ncr-A Bril?
liant Success In Richelieu.
Last Saturday night Hr. Junlus Brutus
Booib, with his talented wife and flue com?
pany, closed their highly successful Befoson of
six nights at the Academy of"Music. The Im?
pression loit as the result of their visit has
be en, on the whole, exceedingly favorable.and
Mr. Booth bas In most of bis representation
fully sustained his' high reputation. It was
only in the characters of Benedick and
Borneo, on Tuesday and Friday nights, that
room waa lett for any serious adverse crltl- J
clem; while in the far more exacting and diffi?
cult roles which he assumed on the other
evenings of his engagement, bis Hamlet,
Blchard, Iago and Richelieu, were each ol
them models ol dramatic Impersonation.
It is not, however, too much to say that Mr.
Booth achieved his most complete success In
the Impersonation, last Saturday evening, of j
''Richelieu,'' in Lord Lytton's historical drama
ot that name. The role ls confessedly one of
the most difficult In modern English drama,
the very incongruities of the character which
attracted' the metaphysical mind of the author
and made the life of the Iron-willed cardinal a j
flt study for his keenly analytical genius in?
vesting it with uncommon difficulties of rep?
resentation. The Bichelten of the author ls a
bewildering combination o? divergent pas*
slons, all of the utmost Intensity, and each
visible in turn and. asserting Its supremacy,
while the human frame In which this battle o?,
the passions ls forever raging ls a frame trem?
bling and tottering with Infirmities of age, a j
body almost, crumbling with decay before the
grave has closed over lt, a worn figure of a
decrepit, dying man. It ls the apotheosis of ]
moral pawer joined to the antithesis ot physi?
cal decrepitude; lt ls the Indomitable soul
lashing the worn-out body into miraculous en- J
ergy of action, and wresting triumph from the j
conditions ol defeat. It will be admitted that
thia ls not a role that ls easy of conception or J
execution, and It must also be admitted
that Mr. Booth has succeeded rarely
In both his comprehension of the char?
acter, and his reproduction of lt to his
audience. The exacting make-up ol the char?
acter was managed to perfection, and the.
audience eaw- not Mr. Booth, not any man of
this century or country-but the veritable lace
and figure of the stern old cardinal, with bis
gaunt cheeks, his massive forehead, his bril?
liant eye, deep Bunk beneath the shaggy eye?
brows, but flashing forth that Indomitable will
that kept alive the failing body, and his flow-1
ing hair and soldier-like beard, not whitened |
with the snows of peaceful age, but grizzled j
and Iron-gray with a life o? battle. Nor were I
fiie conflicting emotions which swayed this
master-mind, comprising the whole range of j
human passions, less skilfully portrayed. The
audience saw and felt the rapid alternations of |
love, hatred, anger, craft, jealousy, all con?
trolled and moulded by ambition, and culmi?
nating at times In outbursts ol scorn and rage
?bat were sublime in their intensity. Such an
outburst was depicted in thowell known scene
where Richelieu, npon Julie's appeal for his
protect ion, meets ber enema's argument of
power with bis weapon of spiritual authority,
draws a, ma gie circle round the lady and defies
ber pursuers to enter lt, while be burls upon
their shrinking headB the blighting curse of
Holy Church. In this scene Mr. Booth was
grand, and throughout the play, down to the
last supreme moment when the leeble cardinal j
springs with almost superhuman energy from
bis dying couch and confronts, dismays and
routs his enemies in their very moment of
triumph by one master stroke of genius, the ;
Impersonation was powerlully sustained and
the complex character presented to the life.
Of the other members of the company much
cannot b'e said except of Mrs. Booth. This
lady ls without a doubt the most talented,
finished and cultured actress that has delight-1
ed a Charleston audience for many years.
Her uJulIe** of Saturday night was simply per?
fect. The r?le is not one that ls especially
prominent In the construction of the play
and, In lac t, there are but few dramas in which
the whole burden ol acting and the whole in?
terest of the plot centre BO completely upon
the leading character as In this case they do j
on Richelieu, but what there was for Mrs.
Booth to do was done with such consum?
mate grace and dignity as to prove her an
artist of rare skill and merit. In the inter-1
view with Bar ad as, the look o? Indignant scorn
with which she repelled bis advances, and
the devotion with which she chose to share
the death ol ber husband, Mauprar, rather ,
than purchase his life with her dishonor, f (
were superb pieces of acting, and received
the emphatic applause of the large audience.
The other characters were fairly rendered,
but the support was bot, on the whole, BO good
as the merits ol the leading actors deserved,
and the company might be Improved, and the
honors of the performance rather more equit?
ably distributed, by a Judicious weeding out
ol some of the members.
The fflartlnettl-Kavel Troupe.
This splendid company of pantomimic artists
open at the Academy oi Music this evening,
with two ot their best pieces-''Jocko, or the
Brazilian Ape," and .uPat-a-Cake, Pat-a-Cake,
Baker's Man," and from the large saje ot re?
served seats on Saturday, a very full atten?
dance ls expected. The company has just
concluded a brief engagement at Savannah,
and tbe local papers speak highly ol their per?
formance. The News, of Saturday, says :
A large .bouse last night welcomed at the
theatre th e.ve ry best pantomime troupe this
country bas ever seen. The entertainment
was the' great spectacular fairy and comic
pantomime entitled the ''tireen Monster," and
the performance was so far superior to that of
any other company that lt is unnecessary to
institute a comparison In order to note the
excellence of this over every other panto?
mime troupe. Ibo concluding one act new
comic trick and fairy pantomime entitled
"Pat-a-Cake, Pat-a-Cake, baker's Man," took
the house by storm, and Julien Martlneltl, as
Bobby Sl.vdog, who minds everybody's busi?

the applause which greeted him whenever he

The subject of domestic missions occupied
much attention. The Presbytery has already

ured tobacco without the proper revenue ce

SUN DAY-SCHOOL CELEBRATIONS.
St. John's Lutheran Sunday-School.
The anniversary exercises of this Sunday
school took place yesterday afternoon iii the
church In Archdale street. The church Itself |
was neatly dressed for the occasion, and the
chancel was beautifully decked with garlands
of roses and fresh spring flowers. Besides the
pupils of the Sunday-school, who occupied tbe
central part of the churob, a large congrega?
tion had assembled long before four o'clock,
and every seat In the body of the church and
the galleries were Ailed. Among those pres?
ent were the pastor, Kev. T. W. Dosh, the Bev.
Dr. Honour, and lu his accustomed place was
Been the venerable Bev. Dr. John Bacbman.
The bright spring, afternoon, the happy faces
o? the children, and the beautiful dressing of J
the church, made up a lovely and Inspiring
The exercises were opened with the beauti?
ful chant uBenedlc Anima Mea," after which
ihe Bev. Dr. Honour read the fifth cbapter ol
1st Peter. The children of the school then
olned in Binging the hymn "To-day we come
with singing." This and several other hymns
it'lnterval8 were sung by the children wlin a
"ervor'and sweetness which formed an attrac
.ive feature of the exercises. The Bev. Mr.
Dosh then offered up a prayer, and afterwards
lellvered a simple and touching address on j
he subject, "Thou, God, seest me."
Mr. R. G. Cbisolm, for twenty years the I
luperlntendent o? the sunday-scbool, next
ead his annual report, containing a most in
eres ting exhibit of the prospects and work- j
ogs of tke school, and a complete resume of
ts history for the past year. On the roll o? .
be school there are now (said the report,) I
ix officers, nine male and thirty-two female
eacbers, seventy-five boys and one hundred J1
od ten girls. Borne three months since the I j
lour lor holding, the Sabbath exercises was
hanged, and they commenced after the I
norning service. This fact alone diminished j
he number of pupils by fully one hundred. I ^
luring the year ten teachers had left the city. I (
'hey could now rejoice In the completion of j
he new Sunday-school building, which could j
eat fully two hundred persons in its large J
all, and seventy-five In the class-room ad- j '
lining it. Thia building had cost four thous- j
nd dollars, and would require one thousand 11
ollars more to finish lt properly. One half 11
f this sum bad already been donated by the '
Dogregation, and by the ''Lutheran" and I 1
Yan Bora" Societies. The dedication of the I
ew building had been postponed, and would I *
ike place at the aanuat meeting o( the Synod
i May next. The regular attendance among I *
ie pupils was marked daring the most trying I,
?sons. Prises had been awarded to twenty I c
upi ls, and the limit admits of an absence of 11
nly two Sabbaths during tbe year. Ia
The iollowiog are the names ef the pupils to Ic

Trinity Church Sunday school. I c
This school held Its anniversary celebration I
?sterday at the church in Hasel stree*. Tu I p
te morning the assembled school and con- J v
rc cation were addressed by the pastor, Bev. I i
Whitefoord Smith, D. D., who preached an In- b
.ructlve sermon upon the proper parental r
alntngo? youth. At the close of the sermon j
j. Samuel A. Nelson, the superintendent of c
ie Behool, submitted his annual report. It I j
lowed that the school bad been opened every 11
aobath during the past year, and the average p
Ltendance have been twenty-six officers and t
?achers, and one hundred and twenty one pu?
lls. Total one hundred and lorty-seven. Fifteen I b
rthe pupils had Joined the church since the last 11
universary, and the roll now embraced, offl- I u
MTS and teachers, male seventeen and lemale s
veniy-Beven; and scholars, male one hun-1 v
red and female one hundred and thirty-five,
otal two hundred and seventy-nine. The
?hool lost two of Ita teachers and seven
molars by death. The congregation and
illdren were afterwards dismissed until
renlng, when the exercises were resumed. I s
These were of a most Interesting nature, j J
id long before the hour the church was ?
owded. The pupils and teachers occupied \
ie pews in the middle of the cburcb, while E
ie congregation flowed into those along the S
de aisles. - The galleries were also soon
msely orowded, and lastly, every available
ace In the aisles or within the open doors r
ere filled with persons, standing or Bitting I j
i chairs. The church was handsomely deck- j
1 for the occasion. Around the whole length
the spacious galleries hung festoons of ever- I
-eens and floating moss, looped up at each J
Uar by a beautiful bunch of partl-colored
ii ural flowers. In the inverted arches ol
.e festoons lovely wreaths ol green and flow- I r
a depended from the ceiling ol the galleries, I f
id from each brilliant gas burner draped ?
tnglngs of hoary moss. The pulpit had 11
;en removed from the altar, which was trim- ?
ed with chaplets and green leaves around I v
e edge, and these were graced at intervals j r
1th vases of beautilul spring flowers. On I a
ich corner stood large flower-decked urns, I c
id at the back of the altar, against the wall, 1j?
large cross reared Its emblematic form from I g
mound of flowers. The lresh evergreeos, t
e varied coloring of the flowers, their soft %
agrance, and the tastelul manner in which
e decorations had been disposed, added not
little to the beauty ol the scene, to which e
indreds of smiling, youthful faces lent an ani-1 F
ated background. ' 11
The exercises were opened by the singing ol j C
e hymn, "What shall the harvest be," by the
illdren of the school. At the head Pt t?;s j a
mtral aisle was a melodeon, played by Miss ?
ary K. Mood, who led the singing. She was r
Ho wed by the children with a correctness n
id sweetness which reflected credit upon the
16 VGlces and careful training of the youthful 0
agers. Various hymos were sung at inter- JJ
ils during the exercises, and tbe young vo- t
.lists did not lail to improve the favora- 0
e impression which their first effort had ?
ade. A prayer waa next offered up by the ?
Bv? W. P. Mouz>n, after which the assistant *
\stor, B. D. Smart, introduced the speakers, t
id first Master Hervey M. Weekley, who de- jj
rered the salutatory address. Master Wilson
