THE DAILY EVENING TELEGRAPH PHILADELPHIA, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 27, 1869.
NEW Y0RKIS3I3. j Tr om Our Own CbrretpmuUmi. Nhw Yobk, Jan. 27, 18OT. Mr. Flsk; the gifted young "operator" whose artistic propensities in storks have lately cul minated In the manifestation ol a very large Interest in theatrical "stock" companies, does not own quite all the theatrical property In the, city, although matter Jo seem lending that Way. Already he controls tho grand opera bouse, formerly Pike', and likewise John Brougham's new theatre, formerly the Fifth Avenue Wluit a curious and plciuaut doublo lile, to be sure, continually alternating between art and auctions, f penJint; the mornings amon the bulls and beiu-, and the evenings araouir Iravurat and bori'oncs! How tncores aud Kte must rattle together In his brain when he seeks repose 1 llow "l-.-trMcretl" bonis and tun ''registet" of a pr.ra '(on no's voice luu-tsccni tr blend Into a sort of vocal money market Just as sleep shuts the curium for a lew brief recupera tive hours ! One can easily Imagine his thought lalloming this fashion: La J'eriohole bond opened Arm, but with a jroed demand for dead head tlckclt. Small coupon I mi a are sence and command from J(ti higher than the lara s Aujacc The uo!d market, fluctuated ill sympa thy with the twelve t ncoret nightly won by Ln Fericholc aud Fiquillo, and loreign exchaniv U firmer, as is shown by the expedition with which Grau in beating me in bnugign out teurde The. Besides these triple accomplishments of running Erie, opera, aud burlesque, Mr. Fisk displays a neat turu for attack aud deL-use through the column r of the newspapers. Per haps he ha kOiue cnuee for pungency iu the recent action of u Sunday school superinten dent, a Dr. Perry (not the famous lmir restorer) who rented from him the large ball attached t the opera house. Mr. Fink claims that he allowed the S. S. 8. to have thn room almost as a gift, and that upon his (Mr. Fisk'f) a-suming to make some alter' tlons In the hall, as he had u right to, the S. 8. S, took unfair and unusual methods to prevcu him, scorned all compromise, aud acted with an excess of Itgratitude aud teualily disgusting iu an individual of no religious pretensions, aul trebly contemptible in an S. S. S. The matter has been taken into court; so what between the courts, the Wall street brokers, Sunday- school buperintendects, opera bouffes, burlesque, and the increasing cares of Erie, the young man of the name of FUk has no indoleut time of it The Immense number of balls that have been given this winter have lut an impetus to the dancing-schools. Among the most fashionable Of these is M. de Uarmo's, at the corner of Fifth avenue and Fourteenth .street, and bcailug very much the same relation to the other dancing schools of New York that Mr. Carpenter', of Philadelphia, docs, or did, to terpsichoreau academies there. De Garmo, who is the perfec tion ol grace and ease, prides himselt on IU cxclusivencss. Ko visitors or ou-lookera aro permitted at his lessons, save by special invitution. His soirees nra the envy and the despair of every oilier resident professor Of the nit. His classes for gentlemen iu particular are thiouged, and, together with his saltatory instructions, us conveyed through personal illuslratioii, an informal lecture la frequently delivered descriptive of the various Btjles of dancing iu home and abroad. His extremely nuict and iirtsifdiule method of ignoring the existence of any other dancing- school thau De Oaiino's, and the gentle con temptuousness with w hich he refers to the "can side of the town" aud the country daun'uig- jnasters who come ouce a year to New York (that i", to De Uariuo'e) to "learn wha'. dancing really is," are bejond all praise, lie U decidedly a New York Ism, which Near Yorkeis would no', have lilted to miss during the present season. A LI Uaiu. MUSICAL ASD DRAMATIC. Tlie Coat of Our Amusements. Everybody, or at least everybody that is any body, admits that ainustinenls of some sort are recessary lor the human auiiual. Eiactly what these aniwcrueuts slia'.l be is a matter ol con troversy betweeu advocates and opponents of dramatic entertainments. The sums which are paid in a city like this, for amusements, teem large when we look at them in a lump, but the managers bavo a different opinion on the subject; aud when we consider our immense population, it is evident that there must be a very large class who ' n create themselves iu some manner outiide of the theatres, and the amount is really very email, iiul It is doubtful whether 11 could b expended iu a lucre innocent aud really pro fitable manner. We give a detailed statement of the receipts nt each of the principal theatres and the Academy of Music for the niou'hi of November and December, which completes our recoid for ; the year. Tli Acnl-iji,y ol' Mimic. Uatciunn'a Frenclt Troupe commenced a season of opera bouffe on Monday, November , and appeared iu Lu Urmi'le l.tmhcw. U.c GrroUtii,,, Lei lle'ie Uvehf, and JlorW U'tuo.

On Wednesday, December 23, D.Vy drama of A Flash of Lightning was brought out, ' and ran for the balance of the month. This piece was represented nine times In December The number of performances given in Decem ber was twenty-eight. The receipts were $1C,4!I5, or about $589 lor each perform. ncc. The Wlnnt. Mr. E. L, ' Davenport, in the early part of November, appeared in the seusatlon drama of F; or, Jtratufcd, and a variety of other pieces, giving In nil twelve performances. Mr. Edwin Forrest commenced an engagement on Nov. Ui, aud played for ten nights. Mrs. D. P. Bowers gave one performance In -November. The whole number of performances during this month was twenty-five; the receipts were $33,78G, making the uvciage lor each performance about $1131. In December Mr. D P. Bowers played for seventeen night. On Christmas day the drama of the Orange Gtri was brought out, and it rau for the balance of the month. This piece was rcpiesented seven times in December. The whole number of performances was twenty- eight; the receipts were $27,032, making the average for each performance about $ 9t!5. Tli I'lioNiinl. At the commencement of November the Wor rell Sisters appeared seven limes in their bur lesques of Offenbach's operas. On November 9 the Lancathire Lass was produced, aud after fourtetn performances it was superseded by IS ow fur Llow, which was represented seven times. On November 39 the cirjus troupe ap peareJ'for the tirst time. The uumbr of performance" during November was twentj r.ine; the receipts were $1,072, making the ave rage for each performance nparly $551. Dming the mouth of December thirty-two citrus performances were given, which receipted $14.02H, or about $-138 for each performance. l'oriug the months of November and Decem ber 205 dramatic and operatic performances were given at the Academy of Music and the principal theatres. The total amount received from the public was $152 50y, or about $7tl o0 for each performance. The following is a statement of the gross receipts at the three theatres during the past four years: January, 18G5, $416, 8S0; in 190$, $10!,G28; in 18G7, $387,801; iu 18C8, $405,878. This shows a falling off iu the attendance at the theatres, which may be accounted for by the general financial embarrassmcats which fol lowed the war, and by the multiplication of concerts aud other entertainments which suit the taste of those who are not dramatically lucliued. The receipts for 1668, however, show su improvement over the previous jear, and the business done at the theatres now in operation, during the present reason, seems to indioate that a f-till belter exhibit will bo made lor ISO1). There has been a decided improvement in public taste of late as regards the manner in which plays are produced, if not lu the matter of the plajs themselves. Playgoers wiili to see even trash pat upon the stage in handsome style and wedl acted, and tho managers who most closely observe the siijns of the time3 will be likely to have the weightiest money-bas In the future.
