NAtioxAt.THBA.Tns. "The New Success," ae the potters ha?e it, attracted another full houae Uet night. "Lorlo," la the orlflnal, may be an artistic and hlfhlylnlereitlng play, but It ta not pleee aa translated, or adapted, likely to establish the title character a favor Ite. Indeed, the part of Lorle, by any other Uiao Manle Mitchell, would appear very common-place the part of Barbel betas; much bet ter defined, and the principal male character, Rein hard, mush the most prominent In the play, Mr. Oolller, we think, fafls in the con ception of that part. An artist, of such repu tation that he attracts the attention of the Prince and wins the lore of the Oouotess, could not be so unlf irmly a boor as he Is repre sented. No audience can fall to perceive how ridiculous the scene appears ae he Intro duces bis peasant wife to the Prince, and he appears fidget ty lest she would betray her rustle manners aad lack of ,the knowledge of society, when kli entire previous conduct on the stage exhibits a great lack of the social and f entlemanly amealllee or me. Ana an other Incongruity In the piece strikes us right here. Lorle exhibits great good sense (which la the tout of good-breeding.) In all the pre- Tloua scenes, aad oaly acta the awkward rus tle la the presence of the Prince after aha haa been reassured by the kind, sisterly reception of the Oounteas. On every previous occasion eho Is self-possecsed, dignified, and uses good language, the translator must hare limited Ideaaof women's tact or talent, wJto reduces a sensible girl to a mere oewx after marriage! But the myriad-minded public require a varied mental recrf atloo, and ' Lorlo" may continue to hare admirers. There was some pruning of the piece last night, and It was relieved of much of Its tedlousneis, though It made It still more!sketchy. The scenes were welt put on the stage, reflecting care on the part of the management, and great credit on the scenic tartlet We noticed new faces predominant In the audience, a small proportion oaly of those of the previous evening, me piay win do rr. peated to-nlgVt, A.

Their political opponents were wily and full of strategy, and were assailing every weak point. If the Democrat! gained the ascendancy the colored man must go down. They were on the eve of another campaign.

Keck gave her neighbor! lome Intimation of her intention, but accomplished her pur- Cose before assistance arrived. She went Into er house, locked all the doori, and proceeded to a little back room up it Mrs. Here she fas tened one end of the rope Into a staple driven Into the roof a low ihed roof the otker end around her neck, and then fell with all her weight upon her kneei, and In this position wai found dead when the house was broken open by her husband at 11:30 o'clock yesterday. The plane where the rope was fastened was not over four feet apd a half from the floor, and the position ln which Mn. I, waa found hows how determinedly she went about the work of death. The Commercial adds the fol lowing regarding Mrs Keoki "Mrs. Keek, when she married Oeorge Keck, wai a widow. Her name prior to her flrst marriage was Mary M, Smith. Herrelatlvcs are wealthy, nnd be long to an aristocratic family at Washington city, and to provide for her support some of them had eet apart a fund, the proceed! of which were available to her during her life time, and the principal Is to go to her children by her tint husband, now that she Is deed."
