ST. JOSEPH'S ACADEMY.
Tho closing exercises of this institution
of learning took place yesterday afternoon,
beginning at 2 o'clock. With our usual
promptness we were on hand at appointed
time but arrived to late to gain admittance
into tho commodious reception room that the
Sisters had set apart for such occasions as
that of yesterday. The room was crowded
with friends of the institution and of the
pupils, quite a number ot visitors being
from tho towns and country about Cairo.
Among others wore Rev. Fathers Hickey
and Kearney of St. Vincont's college,
Ch)o Girardeau, and Rev. Father Eckert of
Mound City. Like us Father Murphy, was
late and was obliged to content himself, as
we did, with a view from the halls.
The programme was rather long but so
happily arranged as not to become tire
some. It was adhered to throughout and
was ns follows:

Tho various exercises wore uniformly in
teresting and were all rendered in such a
pleasing manner as to delight the audi
ence and reflect credit upon the young la
dies who took part in tho entertainment.
The recitations by Misses Mary Williams
aud Winnie Marnell were delivered grace
fully and with line effect and :alled out ap
plause. The essay by Misses Stephenson, Hark
less and Katlenbach of the sonior depart

The concluding and most interesting
part of the programme was the awarding
of medals and crowns of honor. The
awards were made by Rev. Father Hickey
who bestowed the gold medal, in senior
department upon Mies Nannie Harkless
and the gold medal, in intermodiato de
partment, upon Mirs L. McCander. Sev
eral young ladies, whose names have es
caped our recollection, also received
crowns of honor.
At the conclusion of the awards, Father
Hickey delivered a flhort, appropriate and
choicely worded address to the pupils, after
which tho crowd dispersed woll pleased
with tho entertainment.
Last night tho much-talked-of little so
ciety play of the abovo title was presented
at tho Opera Houbo by members of the
"Ideal League." It was a free entertain
ment so far as those who held invitations
were concernod and tho house wasthronirnd
with an audieuco of which a troupo of the
best theatrical talont in tho country might
havo been justly proud. But probably there
never was a more agreeably disappointed
audience than this ono was after th nir.
formauce had fairly oponed. As a rule
amateur performances are of little morit it
thomsolves; they are so frequently inaugu
rated by some stage-struck youths or dam
sols of more egotism than talent, and who
go through their parts hesitatingly, btingj
lingly, awkwurdly, to tho misery of all
lookers-on. Amateur performances nre gen
erally well attended, but those who attend
them, do so, nearly alwnys, purely from
considerations of personal friendship and
pity for tho would-be actors and actressti,
expecting to sacrifice several hours of com
fort to the vauity of their ambitions young
friends, and their expectations are usually
realized; this is the rule, wo say, and
with rare exceptions, , It holds good every
where, always. But thiaiule did not hold
good ln.st niglit, at least not iu so fur as the
performance was concerned. Whatever
tuny have bueii the motives that led the
hundreds of our best society people to the
Opera House, it is certain that they were
woll entertained ; and if they expected to
bo bored, they were very much and very
agreeably disappointed. The play itself was
much above the average; it was a light
comedy, very amusing throughout in its
situations and though unusually long for an
amateur play and quite complicated at
times, there were few hitches by the 'per
formers and the audience gave it close at
tention from beginning to end.
The cist of characters was as follows:
Cheviot Hill, (a young man of property),
Geo. Parsons, Jr.
Belvawney, (Ids friend), Max Black.
Mr. Sympcrson, W. F. Korsmeyer.
Augus Mscalister, (a Lowland Peasant
Lad), G. T. Carnes.
Major McGillicuddy, E. Y. Crowell.
Belinda Treberne, M. Adella Gordon.
Minnie, (Symperson's Daughter), Maud
Mrs. Macfarlane, (a Lowland Widow),
Maggie, (her daughter; a Lowland
Lassie), Katie Howard.
Parker, (Minnie's Maid), Bettie Kors
meyer. Attendants, &c, by members of the
Massrs, Parsons, and Carnes and MiBses
Adella Gordon, Maud Rittenhouse ami
Katie Howard .took leading parts in the
play. Mr. Parsons is a dashing young man
ot means who recognizes in every pretty
girl be meets (and be meets only pretty
ones in the play) the tree upon which tbo
fruit of his heart doth grow, and he makes
lovo to them all, one after another, with the
naturalness and effectiveness of an experi
enced wooer. Mr. Carnes plays the poor,
self-sacrificing lover, who gives up his Low
land lassie to the frivolous but wealthy
"Cheviot," in order that she may live in
luxury, though it breaks his honest heart to
do so. Mr. Carnes did this with
an earnestness and a display of feeling
that aroused the genuine sympathy of lookers-on
generally. Misses Gordon, Ritten
house and Howard possess much dramatic
talent and their renditions were uniformly
correct and effective. A calliope song by
the former was one ot the musical gems ot
the performance and elicited merited ap
plause; Misa Rittenhouse displayed enough
coolness and presence of mind for half
a dozen and her delivery and movements
betokened a complete sinking of self in
the character alio to;k while Miss Howard
left no reason to doubt that she was really
the sweet, gentle, loving, trusting, little
Scottish lass, unacquainted with the world
and its deceptions, that the play made of
her. Even to the mastery of the Scottish
dinlect, she was next to perfect, and her ex
hibitions of feeling, as those of Miss Gor
don, were most realistic.
But those who took the minor parts ac
quitted themselves none the less creditably.
MisaEffie Coleman mado a splendid "Low
land Widow;" her correct rendition of this
part, the part of a sober, middle aged ma
tron, is the more remarkable in view of tb e
fact that it required the utter suppression of
anunusually vivacious nature. Miss Bettie
Korsmeyer porformed the part of "Minnie's
Maid'1 very nicely indeed. A sweet face and
easy, graceful motion, characteristics which
one naturally connects with an ideal "wait
ing maid," and with which nature has en
dowed Miss Bettie, give her part a special
charm for tho audience. Mr. W. F. Kors
meyer made a very fatherly father for
"Minnie;" Mr. Lowell, as the angry and
discarded betrothed of "Belinda," gave a
fine exhibition of rage and epilepsy when
he found the faithless "Belinda" in tho era
brace of the fickle "Cheviot" and heard her
announcement that she was married. Mr,
Max Black had a part of minor importance,
but he acquitted himself creditably.
Half a dozen baskets and bouquets ot
beautiful flowers were presented to the
young ladies at different times by messen
gers from some of their admirers in the
Prof. Storer's full orchestra of eleven
pieces mado some of its choicest music be
tween the acts and as accompaniments to
the beautiful songs.
Thus we have given to the public the im
pressions made upon us by each of the per
formers. As we received no unpleasant
impressions we have nono to re
cord, and if we may judge from tho ex
pressions of tho audience, given at frequent
intervals and in various ways during the
performance, we may saloly say that all
were very favorably impressod. Certainly,
as an amateur performance it ranked much
above tho average and showed that wo havo
among us much dramatic talent, lying dor
mant tor want of an opportunity to mani
fest itself for tho entertainment of the pub
lie. An organization that has for its olij cts
the development of this and other talonts.tbo
promotion of social amusements aud friend
ly interc mrse, is certainly not to bo dej
cried or discouraged.
