Since this great tragedy received its first production at the Globe Theatre in London in 1506, nearly three hundred years ago it has been the most popular of all Shakes peare's plays for stage representation. Richard Burbage was the original imper sonator of the title role and it has been a fa vorite part with every famous tragedian since that time. Edmund Keen, Jonn F. Cook, Barry Soliivan, the elder Booth, Mavready, Forrest and McCullough all considered Rich ard 111., to sfford larger scope for the dis play of their dramatis talents than any other role in their repertoire. Frederick Warde in late years has wou high distinction for his conception and por trayal of this character and is said to rank with bis great predecessors in his interpreta tion ot it.

The Hartium and London united *hows is the only circa* th.it ever gives exhibitions in the great city of New York—tho metropolis of the nation-which it does every spring, opening there In Madison S.rjare Garden, a building 200 leet long by 200 wide. While in that city it is visited by the highest dig nitaries of tho country, clergymen, ju !<<:*, lawyers, doctors, statesmen, foreign minis ters, consuLs, etc., in fact the best and wealthiest resident* of tbe country. The same identical exhibition that was seen there by 500,000 delighted people, by tho residents of Washington, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and every large city of the coun try, will be »-een here on Wednesday, Oct, 5. This year Barnum has;provided even a better and larger show then evirjljefore. There are 100 startling acts, all of which are given in three rings, upon an elevated stage, aud on tl)e hippodrome racing-track. There are three c|rci;s ponj >arjies aud 300 performers, a museum of living wonders, an aviary, two menageries, herd of elephants, (jroye of giant camels, tha wonderful b.'iry family from Burmah King Theebaw's mascots; Cap tain Paul Boytou's aquatic performances in a specially constructed lake of clear water, tbe flying gymnasium, Jumbo as great as when in life, a colotsal elephant (skeleton, Alice, Jumbo's widow from the London Zoo, clowu elephants, Itomin hippodrome with its ex citing contest-t and comb its, HO railroad cars, M cages, 33 golden chariots, 500 horses, num erous ponies, a pay-roll of over 800 peop'.e, and inaDy highly sensational European nov elties. Xt is the grandest show that P. T. Barnum ever had, and that most certaiulpr means a most wonderful display of all that is curious, rare, wouderful, odd, strange, or re markable in the animal kingdom, all that is phenomenal in liylug human beings, and ev erything of an instructive, marvellous, start liug, or daring character in the way of per formancea. Teu million people have seen it. 4ud ten million more are going to do so. The usual pr«o<; admit*, and there are no ex tra charges for anything. Shakspeare's Plays. There is a strong discussion taking place as to who wrote the plays of Wm Shakspeare, People in Butler will not engage ia that at present. They will bo con tent to go to their Opera House on Monday to see on the Dew stage and with new scenery, Shakspeare's Richard tbe Third per formed by Mr Fred Warde aud his large and talented company. This will be a great treat which was impossible on tbe old stage, and now a crowded bouse is to be looked for. Mr* Warde's talent is quite well known and appreciated here just as in tbe same way Mr. Warde appreciates Butler town, Butler men and Butler ladies. He likes coming to Butler. —Young men and voung women wanting to make the most of themselves should attend the Kdinboro school. Its aim is to give the best instruction. For circulars address J. A.

STKIN & SON'S The Great Re-Union. Never before ia the history of But ler have its people taken so general and so absorbing an interest in any one affair as they did in the proposed re-union of the 11th Regiment of Penn'a Reserves Never before has the town been so well decorated, nor have all the de tails of a complicatsd program work ed so harmoniously and been so well carried out. The day broke clear and fair, and found Butler in gala attire, with all its people awake to its great event. By half-past nine all the organiza tions were in the vicinity of the in tersection of McKean and Jefferson streets, the ."Chief Marshall and bis aids went to the West Penn depot to await the arrival of the train with members of the regiment, and when it arrived the members formed in line and marched up street led by Col. Jackson and Major Burke on horse back. Arriving in front of the Jef ferson street school building, the school children broke out with the song, "My Country 'Tis of Thee, Sweet Land of Liberty." They sang beautifully, and the regiment stopped and listened to and applaud ed them. The proceaaion then form ed as follows—Major Reed and aids on horseback,, county and borough officials, and citizens in carriages, Germania Band of Butler, 11th Reg. Penn'a Reserves on foot numbering about 300 and led by Col. Jackson and Maj. Burke an horseback, G. A. R. band of Bntler, members of G. A. R and old soldiers of Butler county numbering about 500 in line. Mt. Chestnut Band, Soldier's Orphans from Butler home, and Butler lire Companies in uniform. The route as advertised was marched over, all the strangers admiring the beautiful arches, motte3 and decorations, and when the parade arrived in front of the Court House, formed with the members of the 11th nearest the speaker's stand—the front steps of the Court House—the old soldiers of the county in tho rear of them aod the men on horseback back of them They closed ia around the steps, and the thousands of people who were there to hear the speeches closed around them. TLo choir, consisting of 75 members selected from the church choirs of the Butler churches, sang the "Battle Cry of Freedom," tho soldiers joining in the chorus. Then Col. Sullivan introduced L Z. Mitchell, Esq., who made a very good address of" welcome. The choir sang "Marching Through Georgia," aud everybody joiued iu the chorus with a will. Col. Sullivan then introduced Col. S. M. Jackson, whom the regiment had selected to respond to the address of welcome. He came forward and made a sensible and feeling address, giving a short history of the regiment and ending with a beautiful compari son of the soldier's faith and hope in the future of this nation to his faith and hope in the Redeemer's cross. Tho choirjthen sang " When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again," and the regiment was asked to open ranks so that the members of the re ception and entertainment committees could introduce the members of the regiment to those who were to enter tain them. They went to dioner, and at 2 p m., had a business meeting in the court-room and an address by Col. McCleary. During the morning a twelve pound brasa field piece was discharg ed from the hill top sooth of town, and that afternoon it was brought to town and fired on the Diamond, thus adding to tho din and clatter of the oc casion, and at 4 p. m. the members of the regiment arranged themselves on the Court House step 3 and bad their picture taken. There was no dress parade at 0 P. M as advertised for the reason that the soldiers were all at tea, but the Court Room was crowded shortly after 7 P. M Col Jackson was called upon to preside, the choir sang ".Vly Country 'tis of Thee",and Gen. McCoy of Ty rone wus called upon. He announc ed that ho was getting up a history of the regiment and would be pleased to have information from all, and theu read a graphic account of th<j battle of Fredericksburg in general and the part acted by the 11th in par ticular, the choir sang ".Juat before the battle," and Ma] Sloan was in troduced, who complimented tho re ception and gave an account of the part taken by the 11 th at Gettys burg, and thought that the regiment had notbejn treated fairly by histor ians. Maj. Burke was then called for and although the time fixed for the banqnet had arrived, he insisted upon giving bis pant and shirt tail Btory, and did se to tbe great amuse ment of the boys. Col. Sullivan now came in and informed Col. Jackson tbat the coffee was getting cold, and tbe ladies getting impatient so tbe reg iment formed hastily and marched to the Rink, and took their seats. The chairman, Col. Sullivan, rap ped for order at 9:35 P. M. and called upon Rev. Loyal Young to ask a blessing. The Rink was lighted with electric lights, handsomely decorated with evergreans, flags, and corps and divi sion badges; the thirteen tables were beautifully furnished, and were filled with an abundance of cold meats, cakes and fruits, the whole making as grand a spectacle as one would wish to see, and refecting great credit up on tbe ladies and tbe committees. Hot coffee was provided, and every body fell to eating and drinking, while tbe choir sang various patriotic songs. Tbe soldiers onjoyed tbe ban quet. They met the enemy and it was theirs. At 1 the chairman rapped tot order, and called for John M. Greer, Esq., to respond to the toast "Our Guests." The chairman bad to rap loa< and 1 )ud to secure a tolerable silence for everybody seemed inclined to talk, and then John came forward and made a first rat<9 speech, welcr til ing tbe Regiment, praising tbe Na tion, and making a good comparison betwean this government aud a mil itary government like Germany. The Chairman then announced that several of tho speakers down on the program —Ex-Gov. Curtin, Judge Agnew, Harry White and Chill Haz %ard were not present and that tho responses would be made by home talent. Col, Thompson was oalled upon to respond to the toast "Tbe Penn'a Reserves," aud though he made a rousing speech,giving a history of tbe Reserves, and making some eloquent passages, there was so much noise made by people talking and tbe ladies clearing off their tables tbat he could Dot be heard at a table's length. Rev. Prugh responded to the toast "The Sauitary and Christian Com mission." He was on the original program and bad prepared a history of the sanitary work done during tbe war, and though he mounted a chair and spoke with his full force, it was utterly impossible to catch a sentence he uttered twenty feet from him, so great was the clatter and talk around. Th« chahman rapped in vain for order aid bid the choir get together and "Teatiug To-uigbt on tha old Camp Ground," and " after that called on Chaa McCandless, Esq, to respond to "Pennsyl vania in the War." Char ley started in, but the choir were feel ing that way themselves atid started in too on "John Brown's Body." a id • Giory Hallelujah," and though the speaker worked away for all that was in him, the odds were against him and nobody heard a lull sentence he said. Thos Robinson Esq was on the general program to respond to "The "Press", and had prepared an elegant address, proving that the pen was mighter than the sword, aad a great many other thiusj.*, but the choir just then had to 'March through Georgia' and there was no stopping them and with the assistance of a majority of the people present they won a great victory, and Robinson could not be heard at a distance of five feet, and it was the same with the balance of the speakers —no- body heard them, excepting a few around the end of one table. Gen. McCoy praised the reception and said he would always com) to Butler when he wanted to have a good time. Maj Cuanigham praised the entertainment, which he describ ed aa"royal," and called our ladies Queens of the Kitchen; Ruubeu Me Elvain told his "Old Dutchman" sto ry, the choir sang about the place the "Old Folk's Stay" and we all went home. We talked to several soldiers from a distance and they all described this reception as being the grandest regi mental reception they ever attended or heard of. NOTES. More than to any other oue man, the success of the Re-union is due to Col. Sullivan of the Committee of Arrangements, who was uuceasiug in his efforts to make it so. The P. & W. R R. is entitled to credit for its couriesits,and R P. Scoit, Esq. for securing the ciun >n The members of ail the Committees worked faithfully, as was s'aowa by j the completeness of all the details. Gen. "Dick"' Coulter of Greeasbar.' and Gen R. A. McCoy of TyroU'i aud Rev. Young were here.but .Judge Agnew, Harry White, Chill Hazzird. Ex-Gov. Curtia and others who were expected were not here. There were thirteen tables in the Rink each 24 feet long, and seating thirty persons, all the chairs were occupied, but the tables were so well laden with provisions that baskets full had to be carried away. All the tables were well furnished and deco rated. and no distinction could possi bly be made unless it was in favor of No. 8, the beautiful ladies of which exerted themselves to the utmost. Capt. Will Mechling of our mili tary company, entertained all the members of his Co. who live out of towu. Lt J. W. Campbell of Grove City, a member of the lltb Reserves, and bis friend, arrived at his homo Monday evening, but was taken sick next day and had to be sent home. By some overeight no entertain ment was provided for the old Sol diers of the County, other than mem bers of tho 11th Reserves. There should have been a dinner for all that day. The Constitutional Centenni al. The Centennial Celebration of tbe Signing of the Federal Constitution, at Philadelphia last week, was a great success and it was so big an af fair, that it is impossible for us to give a detailed account of it. Tbe city was crowded with hundreds of thousands of strangers,many of whom had to sleep in tbe streets at night. On Thursday tbe event of the day was the Trades Display, intended to illustrated the progress made by tbe Nation during the century by an im mense procession down Broad street, the principal Btreet, running North and South through the town. It is estimated that half a millon people were'on the street that day to see the procession, of which tbe Volunteer Firemen, the displays; of the Penu'a 11. R., illustrating the progress made in the methods of travel, that of the Baldwin Locomotive works, the tex tile workers, the secret societies, and some of those made by the merchants of the town were tbe most conspicu otfH. The parade was very long, taking six and one-half hours to pass a given point. Large numbers of stands were erected along tho streets, from one of which the Governors of twenty-three states viewed the pa rade, and it was noted that oue wcaltbly woman, who leased the iM and .'ld story windows of a hotel along the street for the benefit of h.tr friends, paid fcISOU, for the privi lige. On Friday twenty thousand sol diers and sailors were in line and went over tho same route, led by Gen. Sheridan aud Admiral Luce. They were from all the states, tho troops of this state preponderating in number. President Cleveland viewed the pa rade from a stand along the street, and no discourtesy whh shown him, excepting by oue Ohio Regiment which refused to salute as they pass ed; and there was afterwards a recep tion to the President at the Academy of Music, and other receptions to vis itors at the Union League and Juiiru nalist club houses. On Saturday there was a reception at the Public Buildings- ceremonies in ludepeuence Square and an oration by .Justice Miller of the U. S. Supreme Bench, a banquet at tbe Academy, etc The Centennial was an immense success, and was one of the events of the year.
