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

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

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

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.

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. '
