shad not attempt auy description of the va
rious pieces read, except a passing allusion
to"i'he Vagabonds," and "Hiawatha," both
of which were as finely executed aa could
have beeu wished. Beyond all question Miss
Walker has dramatic talent, and if she will
leave oil reading and so. on tlie atage as an
actress, Tennesat will some day be proud
ul her. We do uut want to be understood aa
saying or meaning that AJlss Walker is a
failure as a reader, but we do say by reading
she is apoiliug a glorious talent that cannot
be ueveioped In that channel. We advise her
to thro away her book and on tbe stage
personate bin one character at a time. She
nas a bright, attractive face, with frank,
open countenance, aud added to the&e is. a
