Ah announced the excellent company
performing at tho Atlicneum, presented
hut nl;ht tho "Old Curiosity
tihop." Thoperformnuco was as merito
rious us It well could bo, but wo are fully
satisfied that the members of tho com
pany owe It to their own reputation to at i
once discard nil dramltlzations of Dick
ous'storios. Aside from Little Nell, tho
MarchiouoM and old Trent, there Is littlo 1
' in the "Old Curloalty Siop"as dramat-;
j lzed, to remind tho reader of Dickons'
j exeellont story of that name.
I The Introduction of "Smoky Jack," it
! negro, to dance with and hug white
I women, It not only unwarranted, but
t violative of good tasto monstrous.
Characters llko Noll's rullUnly brother,
are lost, we know not when or row; and
I Qullp, Instead of drowning, is 'hurried
off. atmareutly to a orlmual court, toan-
9wer fur hh villnlnle?. Thero Is none of
the essence of Dickens In the play. It
Is, in short, what It Ip not Inten ded to be,
simply a hurloitiue.
The oompany did tho best they could
all that is In the play was brought
out to tho best possible
advantage. Little Noll and thw .March
Ionei, were surpassingly good, and
Qullp, Hrass, Dick dwivellor, Slum and
Mrs. .htrley could not have beeti improv
o 1 upon : but the matter! The mere as
sooiatlou of it witn tho name of Dickens
tul.oa ,jtcldedly of the absurd.

Tlio oyster supper last night, given for

When, about 11 o'clock, we looked In,

The supper will be continued to night,

Tho object in view is so deserviu,
that everybody should attend who oan
spare the time. Tho ladies In chargo
will extend n cordial welcome, and dis
pense the good things with a graco and
cheerfuluefs that will add not a little to
their toothsomeness, and the pntron's

not spare a half hour's time and a hal

money, considered by lUelf, Is lnconsld

half dollurs of tho five hundred persons
who might, If they would, attend with

relieve all the pressing necessities of tho
church, and yet inconvenience njbody.

Are lookecj upon with suspicion and
Justly so, because they are usually con
ducted by parties who are under no legal
rohtraiuta or obligations to fulfill their
promises however extravagant they may
be. Nor are prizo schemes mutiny re
carded with favor by the men of integ
rity or financial responsibility. We are
happy to say that no objections of this
kind can bo urged against the great
IIiuderon Ky. Prize Scheme which we
are advertising lu our columns. All
parties connected with It are men of the
hlgliest social, llnanclal aud moral
worth, and efou If this wero not so, they
areatrlotly bouud by a regular legal
charter, so that not a dollar of the funds
arising from the sale of tickets can be
touched until tho winners of the prizes
aro actually in possession of them thus
forming tho best possible security In
