Wc copy the following relerctn-e to
Sol. Smith l.'ii-sell, the great character
actor, who, with Ins excellent troupe, is
announced to appear at the Atheneum,
In this city, on Saturday night, from an
exchange: "Mr. Russell eomraenct-d his
professional career when he was only
twelve years of age, and became very
popular In the West and Southwest as a
boy singer and actor. For Fume time he
was connected with regular dramatic
companies, but finding hiuiselt spe
cially succes-sliil iu his imitas
tlons, he cut loose from all re
strictions of such companies, and
devoted himself entirely to his character
sketches, which he has made absolutely
vital with Hie, so true are tlicy to nature.
It isn't Sol Smith Russell at all for the
moment: it Is the ancient spinster, Dors
cas Pennyroyal, whose heart is as fresh
as her curls are false; it is the hungriest
fellow iu tiie world, who sets every
mouth watering by his own appreciation
ol the good things ol life; It. is the awk
ward school-boy, blubbering over his
"piece" which he has to apeak.or grinning
delightedly over his first composition;
it is tbe pltllul, broken-down genthnsan,
who, 'too proud to beg, too honest to
steal,' doesn't somehow 'seem to get on'
In tho world, which : is as unfitted as a
baby to face; but last ot all, it is Sir.
Russell, with a smile that Is sunshine and
a voice that Is rauslo. The chameleon
cannot change its color, the kaleidoscope
its figures, raoio quickly than Mr. Rus
sell can alter his personality. Those
who havo never seen him have a rare
treat In store for them; those who have
will never fail of Improving an opportu
nity to he ir him again."
