MR. OBERLY'S DEDICATION SPEECH.
Tho representative of The Bclletik, at
the opera houso Thursday evening, made
sufficient notes of the speech of Mr. Oberly
to enable us to print it this morning ver
batim, or substantially so. If was our In
tention to have given it wth the account
published yesterday, but tho latenesB of the
hour prevented us getting it in shape for
the printer. It will, however, be good

speak on this occasion, Mr. Gilbert, with
skillful delicacy, conveyed to me the in
formation that only about ten or fifteen
minutes could be conceeded to me before
the curtain would rise upon the opera of j
the Mascotte. The Mascotte always brings
good luck, and has brought good luck to
night to both you and me to mo in a good
excuse for brevity of speech, and to you in
assured protection from the usual tedious
lengthiness of dodicatory addresses. Laugh
Since I loft Cairo in January last a new
spirit has been awakened here. Applause
You have evidently abandoned your former
much-esteemed policy of natural advan
tages Laughter, and have aroused the
spirit of publio enterprise, that wonderful
Mascotte which always takes good luck and
prosperity into every community which it
enters. Loud Applauso. j During the lew
months of my absence many important pub
lic improvement have, I observe, been
made in the city. Among all of these, the
now hotol The Halliday and this new
opera-house seem to me to bo tho most im
portant and significant. Applause. No
city is an endurablo pluca, at least to the
sojourner, until it can entertain the strangers
within its gates'at a good hotel and supply
to thorn, as well as to its own citizons, a
proper place of amusement. Applauso.
This beautiful, commodious and com
fortablo play house appears to be all that is
desirablo hi its way, aud will, I have no
doubt, bo to the citizens of Cairo, for years
to come, a source of pride and intellectual
enjoyment. . Applause. It will, I know,
be a public benefit.
In large congregations of inhabitants-
such as cities aud tho larger towns the
play houso is usually tho architectural com
panion of the church-house and the schol
house. Time whereof tho memory of man
ruuneth nut to tho contrary thereof, there
have been places of worship, placos of
learning, and places of amusement. The
priest, the teacher aud the actor have, ever
since the dawn of history, been conspicu
ous figures, and oacli Iihs made his mark,
both for good and bad, upon the human
race. Tho actor, walking only a short dis
tance in the rear of tho priest and teacher,
has had a marked influence upon morals,
and, in moBt civilized communities, has
molded, at least in somo degree, both per
sonal and national character. Of old, he
has the abstract and brief chronicle of the
time.' , . ;
Bhakspeare taya that the purpose of act
ing, both at the first and now, was and is,
to hold, aa 'twere, the mirror up to nature,
to show virtue her own Centura, 'com ; her
own Image, and the very age and body of
the time hi '..form and preMore. laa
mindful of the fact that it is charged that
ma purpose of acting at the first is departed
from now that sensationalism ha crowded
the legitimate drama to the wall. It may
also be aid, with an equal degree of truth
fulness, that sensationalism has invaded the
page of the historian, the poet and the
novelist, and the sermon of the preacher.
But shall we thereforo witness no more
play? Shall we therefore read no more
book! Shall we therefore listen to no
more sermons? If we admit this charge,
ine assurance may be given that, in good
time the evil complained of will be correct-
ed, and acting he restored pgain to what it
purpose was at the first.' But at the worst,
the actor doe much more good than harm.
and he can find listeners in thousands of
people who could not be induced to give au
dience to either preacher, historian, poet or
novelist. Anditmavnot be doninrl thut
the actor though he does occasionally tear
a passion to tatters can rive an insicht to
numan nature that can be given as forcibly
by neither preacher, historian,' poet nor
novelist. Applause. He acts, in the eve
of the world, the passion the play-writer
wishes to depict, and generally represent
vice as unattractive and virtue as a thing of
oeauty and a joy forever. The mimic
sceue becomes a true picture of real life, in
which virtue struggles and triumphs; in
which vice scheme and fails; aud in which

not children of the genlu that commands
the world, will strut and fret their hour, and
then bo heard no more. Applacse.
Horeon also will the groat works of the
musical masters be presented, and great

story of love and joy and sorrow.
Men and women, gifted aa orators, and

-'Youth sad pleasure meet
To chase the going hours with flying feet."
But I must not forget that
"Brevity Is the soul of wit,
And tcdlousnoss tbn tlmbs aud ontwsrd nourishes,"
that the time to which I have boon res
tricted has about expired ; that the 'stage
waits, and that you are impatient to soe and
hoar the beautiful girl who will act and
sing the Mascotte to-night; and so, quoting
old Polonious again, let me say, in conclu
sion, that to , "tragudy, comedy, history,
pastoral, pastoral -comical, historical-par' r-
al, tragical-historical, tragical comical-his
torical pastoral, scene individual or poem

of things, the. publieljer is expected, to dole
out his goods all over a country, three or
four cents', worth.at a' time, wrapping them

If the pennies were paid down at ; the

whon credit is given for those small sums,

The publisher who scads out his paper to
