THE DRAMA IX NEW YORK,
i'/ OM tlu JSciv Vork, Ki'tntnj iWo/ TtuxtUn,. j
Rachel in Marie Sti art.—The play of
Mary Stuart, chosen for the fourth represen
tation by M’lle. Rachel, is a convenient stage
adaptation by M. Pierre Lebrun "f the dra
inatie'inventionof Schiller. The beat situations
are taken from that source, including the
contrast of the two queens in their characters
of cold statesman like policy and womanly
feeling, in an interview which has no war
rant in history, and which Elizabeth was far
too politic to have ventured upon, but which
the theatre could hardly dispense with; the
gnllaut adventure of Mortimer; the fondness
ol Leicester; the scenes with the nurse, and
indeed the whole outline of the piece. The
exquisite tenderness, the poetic grace of
Schiller are hardly to be fouud in M. Le
brun’s Fronch, but they are amply restored
Rachel in her consummate personation
of the part, and the intense life which darts
from her through every moment of the clos
ing scenes of the Queen’s career, to which the
play is devoted.
If we were asked to detine the excellence
of Rachel in the character of Mary Stuart,
performed last evening, we should say it con
sisted in tltf* thorough infusion of the woman,
the queen, and the saint in the part. They
were blended with grace and purity of stylo
inoxnrossible in words. The power was
wonderful.
It is this sense of power which is the high
est quality of Rachel. It animates and
possesses every movement. Who ever saw
any one enter the scene or move as she does?
It is not the grand step of the tragedy queen.
Her appearance on the stage is, for the want
of a hotter word to express it, a presence.—
When she is before us, at some crisis of the
action, she does not come; she *> there.
Her look is not any other woman’s look;
it is not a glauee, it is not au expression, it is
not the feature of an eye or a mouth; it is the
expression of her whole person. To put this
simply upon the ground of art and stage ef
fect as some of the English critics have done,
is to speak of results which wo have never
oeen mere art, in any of its attempts, produce.
It is a mastery of art by the control and in
spiration of genius.
So the readings of Rachel are as far ns
_-_! I 1 _ __ _A . 1 Fm. . eL.\ • <1 A/ll.l If

or even eloquence, of tho stage. The words
are the simple utterances of the occasion, and
have uo smack of authorship about them.—
Much has l>cen said of the denunciation oi
ltomo in the part of Camille; but these strong
words are not necessary to her great efforts
which frequently arise from the simplest ex
pressions.
Her vorv dress is subordinated to this inner
element of power. It is oi a wonderful har
mony and impressiveness, Iroui the sim
ple costume or drapery of Rome to the elabo
rate toilet of the reigns of Elizabeth or Louis
XV. An inferior actress would sutler from
a want or an excess in these dresses, but in
Rachel they are all made to bleud with her
person.
That person is slender, but it is not feeble
or meagre. On the contrary, it has a cer
tain solidity and fullness, without losing its
spirituality. The cool, calm brow, the strong
ly pencilled eyebrow, the round dark eve.
ever glancing tlantes ot light, not to be over
powered by any neighboring incrustations
of brilliants, however precious ; the mouth of
a winning beauty, and sensuous withal—
these are some of the forces of expression.—
Rut tho motive power is within, in a strong
will and force ot intellect, the exertions of
which are without apparent effort, lr is the
perfection of art, we know, to conceal itself,
but the ability to do this is genius.
To see Rachel is a sensation. It is a thing
not to be forgotten. There are few who
witnessed tho play last night who will not
associate that familiar personage in history,
Mary of Scotland, with this august appari
tion. When she was first betore us as the
teuder, patient, suffering, loving woman, it
was with an air and attitude in whie h tho
dignity of her beauty was not for a moment
forgotten. Her pride and indignation af
terwards, did not diminish the impression;
but when she appears at the close in that
marvellous array of white, queenly attire,
wearing a crown, w ith that unearthly pall >r
on her countcnauee, it is as it the Mary ol
history had stepped forth from her sumptuous
marble in Westminster. &he is struck with
the air ot death aud coming dissolution. In
all that pathetic last act the woman is buried
in the canonized saint.

presenting these preparations to the public, the
p oprietors are aware of the prejudices which
»ey must expect to encounter. lhe country
is deluged with quack nostrums, each claiming
to be the >w plus ultra—the medicine of all medi

printer's ink. with a zeal worthy ol a better
cause, notwithstanding all that has been said
rid the essays written against their use by the
profession, and out of the profession. Indeed so
prevalent ha> become the mania tor quackery,
that a recent writer, a man of eminence in the
medical profession, strongly advises that the
subject he let alone. *lt exists.* says he, **iu

it time wasted to t ndeavor to stem the tide.

fectual method ol counteracting this strong cur

people rennhu Medirhtes. prepared in accordance
with the rules laid down by the di He rent colleges
