In nccordanco with previous an
nouncement, tho Gilbert dramatic troupo
gave their first entertainment in the
Atheneum last night. Although it was
announced only tho day boforo that tho
company were coming, tho attendance was
good in fact much larger than wo belie
ved it would bo. Promptly nt the time
advertised tho curtain was raised nnd the
performance commenced. " Fanchon, tho
Cricket, " was tho play, nnd wo believe
wo speak tho sentiments of nil present,
when wo say that, nlthough " Fanchon "
lias been performed by other companies
that hnvo visited us, it was never rendered
belter than it was last night. Katie Gil
bert, as "Fanchon, " is as sprightly, bright-
eyed a littlo creature as ever walked tliu
boards in Cairo. nnd rendered
her parr of tho piny
in lino style. Jlrs. Fox. ns Jlother Dra.
baaud, siutained her part well ;, and Jlr.
Simcoo Lee, ns Father Drabeaud, was
good. JIark Grayson sustained the char-
nclor of Landry excellently ; while
James JI. Gilbert knew iust how the
character of Didier should bo rendered,
ana, renilcrod it accordingly. In fact, tlio
company is n good one, nnd
we hopo their stay umong us
mny bo long. To-night Jlorton'a camedy
