The Convent Children's E-]

but too impdrfect article, (too short to do
ample justice to the event,) by sayinog
that the size of the Mesr nler hindersan
extended notice of the Convent chil
dren's exhibitions, of last Thursday and
Friday evenings. However,sulBoe it to
say, that these exhibitions were a deci
ded and marked improvement in every
respect, to those heretofore given. The
programmes, of the two nights, which
are inserted below in full, and which
by the way. was carefully and admirably
carried out, will, we trust, supply the
deficiency of any superfluous words that.
space allowing, we would have employed
to give vent to our feelings, and which
the occasion deserved.

was well filled with anxious expec
tants. Following are the program
