The "Derby Winner," a fine come dy drama with elaborate scenic properties, which were necessarily curtailed somewhat by the limited size of the stage, was given at Har per's theatre last evening to a much pleased audience, yet there was a sufficiency of the special scenic fea tures to give the play an attractive presentation. The company is re markably strong, and includes Ar thur Dunn, the sawed-ofi" comedian, who, however, is not what he used to be. The horses are an intelligent lot, and the racing scene is a decided innovation. The play is built some what after the style of In .Old Ken tucky," only it is better if anything in its general construction. Ifcb Ingersoll; the famous infidel, will lecture on the bible at the Bur tis tomorrow evening. Murray & Mack appear in "Finni gau's Ball" at the Grand Sunday night.
