On Saturday evening Gus Williams, tbe German comedian, will appear as John Minhler in bis comedy of "One of the Finest." Mr. Williams Is well-known here, but the following clipped from the St. Louts Globe Democrat may be of interest: "Gus Williams is a popular comedian, and his yearly engagement in this city is always welcomed. He opened the Theatre last night as John the German policeman, in "One of Finest." The house was well filled and the performance was received with favor. Mr. Williams has added one or two new st&DZ&s in his "One of the Finest," and some of the scenes have been changed and new special ty features been lnrerted. De Loss King, of the company, does the masher very well, and there are other members who please. Tbe piece will be received with the usual degree^) Those that People's Miehlcr, f favor all the week." are fond of comedy should b»ar In mind that ou Monday evening next John E. Oweue, will appear in the Opera House in his new play of "Cooke's Corner," of this comedian, the Chronicle of Washing ton, D. C., says: of all the great American comedians,and among them may be counted the best on Ihe English stage tc-day, John E. Owens is the most successful In keeping up a continuous and uproarous mirth among his audiences. This is altogether attributa ble to the high degree of comedy talent he possesses, his broad sense of bumor and his generous manner of portraying it. Tbe fun of tho play is so palpable and so good that both the uneducated and cultivated of bis patrons enjoy it. The humor of it is broad and strong, aud is peculiarly of a kind to be relished by the general run of American audiences. Tbe acting of Jeffer *on and Sothcrii in their particular plays doubtless furnishes as much pleasure to a majority of an audience as does Owens' performances iu his play, but Owens has the advantage over either of his distin guished fellows In that his entire auditory is made merry. Owens' audiences In America laugh at the same time, and all Join in the infectious chorus." "The 8llver King" as presented at the Opera House last evening, is one of the grandest and most thoroughly enjoyable dramas ever seen in this city and well re paid tbe large audience present. The play is strong in all its parts, and from the time the curtain rises on the flrst act until it falls at the close of the drama, holds the audi ence and ei lists Its sympathies as if watch ing the characters in real life. Tbe magni flee* t scenery and stage settings and the admirable manner of working them also added much to the success of tho piece, end notwithstanding the fact that matters ou the stage was fearfully crowded everything worked admirably, but with two instances, where the sc« nes caught for a few seconds Of the players too much praise can uot be accorded them for the faithful rendering of their lines and the thoroughly easy and natural manner iu which all worked Bentley, hero, was twice called tain. His rendition of tbe difficult char acter was without fault, and was at times powerful and always interesting. Nellie Denver , his wife, as taken .by Miss Helen Tracy, was with feeling listed the in her demne before tho curtain and applauded in the warmest manner. Daniel Jakee , the faith ful servant by John Jenuings, was one of the most amusing characters. His render ing of tho part of the devoted and self sacrificing servant was particularly good. Tlie other characters were equally goo«l. Captain Herbert Skinner , the villlan, by W. Ellason and accomplices Eliza Coomb$ and Cripps by Charles Foster and Robert Brown, respectively; Olive Skinner, wife of Captain Skinner, Miss Lillian Edglnzton, and tho Innocent and childish prattle of little Emma Pullock and Lillie 8aude, children of Jfr. and Mrs. Denver, were also good and one aud all, the characters working so har moniously together, weut to make one of the most enjoyable entertainments that it has ever been the pleasure of a Wilmington audience to listen to. Tbe new orchestral selections under the new leader added greatly to the success of the drama, which will be repeated again this evening aud to morrow night, and should be seen by every citizen who enjoys seeing a melodrama which teaches one the bsst of morals. aloug.

TERRIBLE COLLIERY EXPLOSION. Two Miners Killed and Tlielr Bodies Blown Fifty Yards. Pottsville, Nov. 14.—At noon W day a terrible explosion of sulphur occurred at the Philadelphia and Reading Coal and Iron Company's Eagle Hill Colliery, four miles west of this place, resulting in the instanta neous death of two miners and serious if not fatal injuries to another. Robert Kennedy and Michael Kelly were partners in a breast in the West Mammoth vein gangway and were engaged in blasting, a particularly dangerous part of a miner's duty. A halt dozen or more shots had been fired during the forenoon; a number were prepared, and when everything was in readiuess Kelly lit the fuse, and, together with his companion, retired to a place of safety. A few minutes subsequently a terrible explosion occurred, which was felt in every portion of the mine. Upwards of 200 men and boys were inside at the time, and they describe the shock as ter rible. As soon as it was safe for the men to leave their breasts they cautiously pro ceeded in to investigate the cause of the ex plosion. Kelly and Kennedy's breast was soon visited, but tbe meu were nowhere to be found. Everything ia the vicinity of the breast Indicated that the force of the explo sion was terrible in its effect. The dead bodies of Kelly and Kennedy were fouud 50 jards from where they were working, hav ing been blown that distance by the force of the explosion. A short distance further on was found Edward Keating, a door boy. He was very seriously if not fatally Injured. The three vlct<ms were soon brought to the surface and couveyed to their homes.
