Beggars," by the Gallon Opera Company,
and to "fleet the time carelessly, ns they did
iu the golden ago." Notwithstanding the
absence of scenic accessoiies and the pr
of a narrow, contracted stage, they gave
great pleasure to the audience, and were
greeted with frank and cordial applause.
The central figure was Miss Susan Gallon,
and nothing could be sweeter than her inter
pretation of Fanchette's capiicious moods—
her gladness iu the presence of her lover, her
vailed joy in him, and in lier love in him,
and her tantalizing assumptions of wliole
hcaited levity. Girlish petulenco, graceful
impetuosity, and dein ions assumption of a
tender, coaxing mood, made up the cliarm
iug scenes. Her tinging was delightful, and
all who listened to the little lady's sweet and
perfectly modulated voice and the exquisite
grace of her manner wero utterly entranced.
