The Theatre?Who's Wife??Miss Ada Gray, supported by Mr. Harry Langdon and Spalding's Stir Combination, appeared at the Theatre last night in the great society play of "Who's Wife?" written expressly for her. It is needless to commend the actiug of this talented and graceful eoin medienne, but her merit was very poorly ap preciated last night, if we imy "judge i'rem the slim audience whicu greeted the return to Richmond of one of the mos-t nceomplisb ed actresses that has ever appeared before ai. audience in the South. Mr. Langdon acted well his pp.it as" Sar die Capers," aud was repeatedly regarded with merited applause. Mr. Ryan's " Fer rell Bryfou" was capital. Miss Monk, who assumed the character (if " Belle Merrill,'' placed her part admirably, but Mr. Smith, as 44 Lionel." was to>? slow. If, however, the aStar Combination " will only have one or two rehearsals the play will* go oil much more smoothly and satisfactorily to all par ties.
