REVIEW OF NKW IjOOICS.
TflKATRioAL Maraokmrkt for TniRTt Ybarb.
By 8ol Smith, retired actor. Published by
Harper ft Brothers. Philadelphia Amenta:
Clsxton, Remsen & HaUelflngr.
TLere are no class of persons who are bettsr
"company" in private life than members of
the theatrical profusion. Their way of life
throws them continually in company with
queer specimens of human nature, and lea Is
them into odd adventures which supply them
. With a limitless fund of anecdotes of the most
laughable description. We know aotora who
Are infinitely more entertaining off the stag8
than they are when before the public; and
who, if story telling was a paying art, woald
accumulate fortunes with the most gratifyiug
rapWlty, whereas they find it difficult some
times to make a sufficiently favorable impres
sion on their audiences to earn their daily
bread and butter. Most of the autobiographi
cal works written by actors and actresses are
very amusing reading, and -Bol Smith's
"Theatrical Management in the West and
Soutb, for Thirty Years," is not the least
entertaining book of the kind that we have
seen. In this book is included the eubstauoe
ef two smaller works published in 1845 and
1855, and a number of anecdotes whloh origi
nally appeared in 'Barton's Enoyclop.oiia of
"Wit and Humor," all of which had con
siderable popularity la their day. A
considerable amount of new matte r
Las been added, and the present work is a
complete, although somewhat disconnected
and rambling, autobiography. Mr. Smith does
not make any pretensions to elegance of style,
but he knows how to tell a good story, and
has a keen appreciation of the humoroas side
of life and character, so that he is always
entertaining, if not profound.
We do not remember whether the following
has ever been published before or not, but we
Imagine that it will be new to the majority of
our readers, so we give it as a "specimen
brick:"
In the course of roynianagement.lt maybe
Well supposed that the receipts liave ou sonie
occasions been very small, but it lias seldom
happened that a performance has taken placa
without tne presence of a dozen or two who paid
lor their admission. It will be seen by wliiU I
am now about to relate that In one lnstauoe a
performance took place (at leant In part) bef jre
about the smallest paying audleuoe on reoord.
It was a very rainy night. Tne plav adver
tised Was Tortesa the Usurer, with Mr. E. Conner
as the star, alter wuicu. the celebrated Uerr
Cllne was to go through wlu tils wonderful
feats upon the tight-rope the performance to
eonclude with the farco of the ItenUezvous.
Conner waB to receive, and dll receive, fifty
dollars for his nigut'a services; Herr Cllne was
to get one clear third of the receipts, and our
nightly expenses were two hundred and fifty
dollars. Contrary to my usual custom, I did
not go to the theatre iu the early part of the
evening, having do prt to play in the first
piece, but ai about 9 o'clock I wen Jed and waded
my way thltht-r, and found the curtain Just lull
ing npon lortesa. Herr Cllne, dressed for his
perfoimance, met me as I entered.
"Ob! for God's sake," said be, Imploringly,
"don't compel me to dance to this iinudful uf
people; the night Is so bad, there are not twenty
dollars In the noube. Come, let me oil; dismiss
the audience, and let thern uo home."
In this pelltlen be wits Jollied by all the actors
Who hud parts lu te al'iurplece.
"This is all very well," aula I, "to ask me to
dismiss the audience; but you forget that this
'handful of people' nave come uetrly a mile
through the pitiless storm, ou the promise held
out in our bills. No, no; if tuey require the
performance in full they stuill nave it. I am
Willing, however, If tlieyare uneliclj niaiiiuiju
to receive their money back but uot otherwise
.-to abandon the rent of (lie programme and let
you all to home. Before putting the question
to the audience, however, I must 'look luto the
treasury.' "
As I passed across the stage to the box-office I
cast my eye through a hole In the curtttla, and
could discover lii Jront not more man a dozyu
faces, counting bar-keepers, dead-heads, and
all. I found tue ticket-seller sluing on u hlgu
stool lu the cilice, looking as melancuoly us an
undertaker in a healthy season.
"What are the receipts?" I askod.
"Ouess," said be.
I guessed flftten dollars.
"You have guessed Just fourteen dollars above
the mark," said the treasurer, throwing down
two half uollurs upon the shelf where the money
was taken in.
"Only one ticket sold?" gasped I.
"Only one tloket sold." remarked he. coolly.
again jingling the two half dollars upon the
shelf, to give me full assurance that what he
said was entirety true.
"And a five-act play has been given to the
one discerning and uihorl minuting purchaser of
that single ticket," I remarked.
"Exactly so," said the treasurer. "You know
your rule, iVo postponement on account of
weather,' "
"Stop a little," I said; "I'll go and see this
gentleman he may be bought oil;" and away I
went into the front of the bouse. I soon fouud
the gentleman, seated exactly in the centre of
the parqnette, llblenlng very attentively to "an
overture by the orchestra," whlou formed a
part of the programme upon the bills of the
evening.
"Quite a rainy night, sir," I said, addressing
the attentive listener to the overture, seating
myself at Ms side. He did not reply except by
a polite Inclination ot the bead.
"You will, I hope, excuse the request I am
about to make of you," said I, as soon as the
overture was finished (auothtr nod from the
gentleman): "but it being, as I remarked, quite
a rainy night, our efforts nere" (pointing to (be
stage) "have not been so well rewarded as the
attractions offered might seem to deserve" (an
other nod). 'Iu brief, sir, you are the only in
dividual in the house wno has paid Or admis
sion (nod); and we auk it as a favor that you
Will receive back your money, and relieve our
actors from further exertions to amuse you this
even Id g."
Several emphatic nods and one or two shrugs
of the shoulders were tne only responses I re
ceived to this civil speech. After watting a
moment for an answer in words, I vent ured to
repeat my request that he would receive back
his money, at the same time tendering tue
Identical half dollars the treasurer had been
Jingling the whole evening. Tae gentleman
Stared at the money, aud then at me, as if be
was at a loss to understand the meaning of my
words and action. It suddenly occurred to me
that the gentleman might be a little hard ot
hearing; so, pluclng my mouth close to bis ear,
1 again requested bis acceptance of the money,
and demanded his permission to omit the re
mainder of the performauoe. Thus adjured lor
the third time, the gentleman at length opened
His rnomu, set his tongue in motion, and spoke
"Monsieur, Je n oomprends pas un mot de ce

(Hlr, I do not understand a word you say; but
I suppose you are remarking on the excellent
Jteriormance, lu whloh case I agree with you
t is superb. Mr. Conner is a flue young actor,
and Mrs. Farren is great.)

possessed of the French language, after Impart

be no sooner comprehended than be acceded
to my request with the greatest readiness, so
far as remitting bis claim to the rest of the per
formance; but in my bad Frenob I found it
Pfwrly Impossible to persuade him to take back
his dollar. The polite Frenchman lighted a
cigar at the door, hoisted his umbrella, and
went forth, calling back to me, "Bon solr, Mun.

Sol Smith became an actor from a sincere
love of the profession, and he has always
earnestly defended it and its maniberd from
the aspersions cast upon them. An intimate
acquaintance with actors and aotresaefj of
every grade for fifty years entitles the follow
ing opinions about them, and the following
advice to them, to a respectful consideration:
Since my retirement I have b en fivqaeutly
nhktd my opinion ol liiealrical people fis cl.n,
and 1 have not been backward lu iivln it. Sj
fur us I can, In a lew words, I here repeat in
MiliMuiico wluit I liuve said, and what I relly

I Lie acquaintance and lrletuUhip of geutle
woiueu, tue best In the laud; 1 have been
thrown into letupoiaiy association with all
serin ol men und women, I may suy, and, so far
lis iny observation bus guiie, I most couacieu-,
tlously declare Ibut ibo members of the the
atrical profession will compare f.ivoraoly, us a
class, with those of any other prolesslon. (Don't
si'ske your bead, rev ti end sir; tbis is the truth
which I write.) 1 ettppoHe I have hud dealings
with at least a tbousaud actors and aotresses in
my time, and or alltr.ai, number I cannot oall
to mind more than a S'sore ol black sheep out of
the whole liock I hat is, that were depraved in
ILelr mtluies. On the contrary, I have found
in (be m st of them the Christian virtues uot
profaned, perhaps, but curried into act. There
is not a more churliati.'c rlass of individuals ou
the earth than tbexlrlcal performers, 'fuelr
means are generally small, but their hearts are
large. (Jiving is uot of their most cuarilaolo
nets, for ibey have precious little to spare in
that woy; jet I belluve they contribute in
money un much as auyoihtr of luecIasHesI
have mentioned, according to their ability,
l'ersonal service to tho sick and disabled are
very seldom withheld by any. It would, per
bats, surprise some readers to h now bow msny
actuis and actresses ure members of the Churou
not that I consider them any better lor that,
or think profetting religion always makes one
religious.
But, alter all, the good conduct of actors and
actresses is their best defense. Let them not,
only be good aud virtuous, but appear so in the
eyes of the world, for t here are no people sj
wutched as they are. Let married women be
announced by their right names, and let them
abandon at once and forever the foolish desire
to be called Misses clinging to their maiden
nnmeBeven alter becoming mothers of several
childrtn, as If they supposed it lo be disgraceful
to be wives. I know ol no custom so ridiculous,
so foolish, and so 1? excusable us this I refer to.
Let me big the few American actresses wbo
follow this despicable custom to consider, only
for a moment, the equivocal position they are
content to occupy whie living with men, and not
bearing their names, "Oh 1 suauie, where Is thy
blush? '
For the men of tun profession I have a few
words'. To each actor I say, be provident. Lay
.oM8uV
Long Branch!) Bhuu the bottle, your worst
enemy not yours only, but the enemy uud
cause of ruin of many of the wisest and best of
all professions. Avoid getting into debt, and thus
avoid being a slave. "Be good, and fear not."
Kespect yourself, and study to deserve the re
spect of all good men and women. Uespect
trne religion, and strive lo be religious, whether
you become a profesor of rellulou or not. "bJ
unto others" you kuow the rule; act on it.
What we have to object to iu this book ia
the unnnecessary profanity which disfigures
tome of the anecdotes, and the two frequent
use of an expletive which would be startlingly
expressive if it were not eo commonly ased(
and which ia universally prohibited in the
society of decent people. The illustrations are
numerous, but, except those by Mr. Darley,
which have been previously published, they
are not remarkably good. A portrait of the
author and a facsimile of Li3 autograph ia
given as a frontispiece.
IlAitrEit's IIand-hook for Travellers in
EuRor-K and the East. By W. Pembroke
Fetridge. Seventh Year. Published by
Harper & Brothers. Philadelphia Agents:
Claxton, Remaen & ilaffelfinger.
A work of this kind ia peculiarly Susceptible
of ridicule, and the diiferent editiona of "Har
per's Hand-book" which have been put before
the pnblio have been sneered at net a little.
We believe, however, that the author and
publishers desire to make it as complete and
perteot as possible, aud to give just exactly
the kind of information that will be most
useful to the average traveller. To those who
are well posted in history, literature, and art
some of the details may seem unimportant
and trivial; but we think that most of those
who carry the "Hand-book" in their port
manteaus during a tour of Europe will not
consider them so.
Clear and precise directions are given about
obtaining passports, how to use them, what to
see and how to see it, tlis bent routes to take,
the engagement of guides and other attend
ants, the hotels and their rates of charges, t!te
manners and customs of landlords and the
ways they have for increasing their bills, and
an innumerable vatitty of similar information,
much of which is calculated to provoke a
smile in reading, but which will, nevertheless,
save the traveller much serious annoyanoe.
Full descriptions are jjlven of all the "sights"
woxu. seeing; and if the critioisms oa works of
art aid otu. matters ar not such as will
meet the approbation of the best-informed con
noisseurs, they will at least serve the purpose
(f instructing the lesj learned about things
that are worth admiring, and putting them in
the way of finding out for themselves things
that are worth knowlsg. The "Handbook"
is well printed on thin but strong paper, and
it Is substantially bound in morocco, with a
flap, so that it can conveniently be carried in
the overcoat pocket. A map of Europe it
given, showing all the railroads now open and
those in progress. It would be an improve
ment In this map if the boundaries of the dif-
ferent countries were shows.

Sloan's Architectural Her Into for September
shows a decided Improvement ou the previous
numbers. A majority of the articles are by
Messrs. Sloan ud Lukens, the editors, and
tbey treat of architecture, building, au l kin
dred subjects which come within the scope of
the publication, from an artistic as well aa from
a practical point of view. Several fine desigua
are given for stores, dwellings, churches, etc,
with full descriptions and details. The Archi
tectural Review supplies along-felt want, andaa
it is conducted with ability, we are conudent
that it will ere long become the recognized
organ of the profession, and will be made the
medium for the lnterohanpa of idea and for
the promulgation of valuable suggestions an I
information about matters of every descrip
tion conneoted with architecture and building.
