Elijah OPERA. SEASON. , There have been six seasons of opera, none of them very noteworthy except the fourth (the En glish) . The first was the Oates season, which com menced at Hooley’s June 28, 1875, and included seven performances; the second, the Lledcricranz season ( 4 ‘Merry Wives of Windsor”), at Me- Vickcr’s Theatre, Kov. 8, 1875, seven perform ances; the third, the Oates season, at Me- Vickur's Theatre, Dec. 27, 1875. fourteen per formances; the fourth, the Kellogg season, at Hooky**, Jan. 8, 1876, twenty-one performances; the fifth, the Kichiugs-Bernard season, at Wood’s Museum, March 0, 1870, sixteen performances; and the sixth, the Julia Mathews season, at the Academy of Music, March 20, 1870, fourteen per formances. In addition to these, the second act of “William Tel!” was given March 10 by the Liederkranz; the third and fifth acts of “Faust” and the fourth act of “The Huguenots” by the Pappcnhcim troupe. May 14; and the second act of “Lucrezja Borgia,” the second and fomth acts of ‘ ‘Trovatore,” end the second act of “Her ITeischuetz,” May 21. The operas per formed have been as follows, including the num ber of performances: “ Girolle-Girofla, ” 10; “Mine. Angbt’a Daughter,” 8; “Merry Wives of Windsor. ” 7: “ Lctty, ” “Rose of Tyrol,” 0 each; ‘ 4 Brewer of Preston," 4 4 princess of Trcblzomle, ” •Jcach; “La Jolie Purfnmcuae,” “Les Pres St tiervals,” and “Mignon,” :i each; “Bohemian Girl,” “ Les Bavurds,” ‘‘Trial by Jury,” “Fra Diavolo,” “Marinina,” “Talisman,” 44 Martha,” and 4 4 Daughter of the Regiment ” 2 each; ‘ 4 Rose of Castile,” “Trovatore, 4 • Huguenots,” 44 Lu cia,” “Faust,” “LilyofKillaniey,” ‘‘Marriage of Figaro,” “Ernanl,” and “The Grand Ducn css,” 1 each. Of these operas, “Les Pres St Gervais,” 44 Trial by Jury,” “The Talisman,” “ The Brewer of Preston, ” and “ Lctty,” were given for the first time in this city. ORATORIO. The oratorio performances have been few in burn er. In December, 1875, the 44 Messiah” wsa twiccgiven by Mr. Blackman’s chorus, now the 44 Choral Union,” and during the present month the same society have given selections from 4 4 Sam son ” and 44 Elijah.” The latter work as a whole was given by the Beethoven Society last Thursday evening. FIRST APPEARANCES. Daring the season the following first appearances have been made: Sopranos, Miss Lizzie Cronyn, Miss Julia Mathews, Miss Laura Schirmer, Miss E. A. Humphrey, Miss W. E. Bcnzlger, Mrs. Louisa Oliver, Miss Montague, Mme. Eugenic Pappcnhcim, nnd Miss Kate Douglass; altos, Miss Anna Drasdil; tenors, Mr. J. C. Bartlett, Mr. Alonzo Hatch; bassos, Mr. Gaston Goltscbalk, and Mr. Conley; pianists. Dr. You Bulow, Made line Schiller, and Oscar SchinolL AT HOME. ’ ; ■ ELUAU. The prominent musical event of last week, outside of Mr. Hatch’s debut, which has been already noticed, was the performance of Men delssohn’s oratorio of “ Elijah ” by the Bee thoven Society, at the Plymouth Congrega tional Church, on Thursday evening, closing the work of the Society for this season. Ora torio performances are becoming rare events in Chicago, for the lack of an oratorio society and orchestra, and a glimpse at the past, there fore, will he of interest. Chicago heard its first oratorio, * ‘ The Creation, ” on the 11th of May, 1838, at which time the Musical Union per formed it, with Mrs. Bostwick, Mr. and Mrs. Mo zart, Miss Jones, Mrs. Shepperman, Miss Sheridan, Mr. J. F. Tannt, Mr. J. G. Lombard, Mr. J. T. Jewett, and Mr. Leonard in the solo and concerted work. How time flics! Of the above, some arc dead, some have left us; not one is singing in Chi cago. The second performance of “ The Creation ” was given Oct. 0, ISSS, with a notable cast Hattie Andcm sang Gabriel; Mrs. Mozart Ere; Mmc. Schumann, Uriel; Ernst Petring, Raphael; and Carl Formes, Adam. Carl Anschuctz was at the head of the orchestra, and Bohn was Director, with & chorus of only sixty voices—but sixty such voices! Think of this in these latter days of tri fling with oratorios. •• The Creation ” has been given five times here, and the “Messiah* five times, with such notable singers as Parcpa, Nilsson. Cary, and Whitney in the casta, but “Elijah’’ exceeds them all, having been given seven times. Its first production was at Bryan ■ Hall on Mar 27, 18(12, under Mr. Balatka’s direction, with Mrs. Davidson, Cassie Mattcson, George Simpson, and Jules G. Lombard in the cast. Since then, Annie Mam, Hattie Brown .Miller, and Imogene Brown have sung in it, and now comes the Beethoven Society, with Miss Haskell, Mrs. Johnson, Miss Brewster, Mis» Forcsman, Sir. Bcrgstcin, Mr. Barnes, Sir. Clark, and Mr. Dexter in the solo and concerted work, and about ir>o voices in chorus, with Mr. Eddy at the organ, and Mr. Wolfsohn at the baton, i The audience was a large one, filling every seat in the church, and, if there is inspiration in an audience, certainly the Society ou"ht to have been inspired, it turned out i« full ranks,— nearly laO voices. The solos and concerted music were allot ted as follows; Miss Jessica Ilaskell took all the soprano work, including the Widow and the i oath, in the Place of Mrs, Thurston, who is indisposed. Mrs. Johnson had the alto solos; Mr. Dexter, the tenor, and Mr. Bcrastein the laborious part of A'liJah. In addition io these. Miss Mattie Brewster tin place of Mrs. Ulmanu, also indisposed). Miss Lizzie Foresman, Mr. Barnes, and Mr. Clark as aisted in the concerted numbers. Mr. 11. Clarence Eddy had the toilsome work of the organ accom paniments. This was the disposition of the forces. Mow did they do their work? Primarily, we may lay down one fact, # Elijah, the crowning work of Mendelssohn's life, isessen- UalW dramatic and highly colored. Xu these re spects no other oratorio resembles it. it indicates a new departure from the works of thcoid masters, as much in its dramatic character as m the char acter of its musical construction- Although an ar dent admirer of Handel and Bach, when he wrote “Elijah” Mendelssohn did away altogether with the antiquated conventional form of oratorio scor ing and struck out in a new path of his own. * ‘Elijah, ” to all Intents and purposes, is an opera with sacred text and characters. Its recitatives are constructed in the freest dramatic manner, 1U solos, duos, trios, and quartettes find their paral lels in the modern opera. Us choruses are intensely dramatic, highly toned, and picturesque. The whole work abounds in strong situations and op portunities for points which are not found in the elegant and classical monotony of the older works, with their constantly,recurring runs and triplets. The most sweeping criticism that can be made of the Society’s singing is that it did not give the choruses as a whole expressively and with dramatic color, lu the main, the chorus kept well up to the key. although towards the close, in the more involved choral work, when the singers had tired some, they dropped down. In the tempos there was a disposition to lag behind, which may be owing to tluee reasons: first, a want of precision in attack bv the male voices—there was no trouble with the sopranos and altos on this score; second, because the chorus was unused to an organ, al though such a magnificently suslainingaccompam jncut ought to have held it; and, third, because Mr Wolisohn took some of the tempos faster than is customary. The principal failing, however, was in the shading necessary to bring out the dramatic character of the music, and this is ow in'* to the fact tuat, with all its drill and hard labor, for which it deserves croui the chorus has not ,yct accomplished the art of making an effective climax, its pianissimo* arc its fortissimos, fortes. Its tone Is not de veloped. The sopranos give out a bright, fresh, refincduinality; likewise the altos, when they are not slaughtered by the basses. The tenors are not clear in quality, nor self-reliant m manner. Ihe hatsM are belter. Another season the manage nient should sec to it that there arc _ stronger lead ing voices in the parts, as this indecision in attack anil incompleteness of tone hints its wot!., how ever hard the Society may labor. . . .. There is great credit, however, to be given to the Society. It may fairly be questioned whether its conductor was warranted in placing so long and stron" a dramatic work, without the aid of orches tra iS the hands of a young Society, but, since it Sheen done, it is none the less proper to give the Society the credit of making an earnest, hon est, conscientious effort, and to tay that on the whole the singers cm the were ranch more deserving of praise than the artists up above them m the choir-loft. who, h> the wav, should have been in their places in front of the chorus. It would be too long a task to al lude to each choral number in detail; but it raaj be said that some of them, notably the opening number, ‘‘Help Lord,” the Baal choruses, the “Thanks be to Clod, ” and “Blessed arc the Men, went very effectively. The “ Yet doth the Lord see it not” was also very creditable, except that 55°the finale the crescendo and efibet was not sufficiently marked, ihen # Be -J«ot Afraid” logged a little, and the most picturesque numiipr nf the work, “Beloved God, the Lord, SosSTby " »’«« lacking la the light and shade noccssarv'to bring out its strong color-effects in thc Mntrests between the earthquake and the tire aU OfXepa^o n r/lle T soloana concerted work it is almost impossible to writo with patience. There arc excuses for the chores; there are none for the Mlo nerformers. Miss Haskell, however cxccl leiu£e e may bonpon the concert sU.Se ,v.dent y rthod of mamter of dedataing recitatire. We should ho made, considering that she was not originally cast for the part, and must Wtc taken it at short notice; hnt even this “nnot com of fact that her method of singing, and the of her voice, notwithstanding its clearness, bright ness, and freshness, m all of which qiz'hlies it ls SclMitfal, do not adapt her to (lie broad, free dignified, and dramatic work of oratorio. This, however, is no reflection upon Miss Haskell, for oratorfo singers among sopranos are as rare as white blackbirds. Mrs. Johnson acquitted her self superbly. She has, as it were, been brondit up in oratorio, and has assisted, we bplicve in every performance of oratorio SfJin'fA tiiin city. The result of her experience was manifest in the crisp, dramatic way In which she Intoned berrccitativc, and the smooth, flowln 0 , and manner in which she sung the arm, *“Orcst in the Lord” andthe arioso,_*‘Moc, woe nnto them. ” In every respect of singing, her per formance was the most enjoyable feature of the work Sir. Dexter, for an amateur, • promises remarkably well, and, coneiUenug Uls in experience in oratorio, deserves great credit. \\ ith [ the exception of bis opening ana, It with ail your heart,” in which be got off the key near the close, he sang very acceptably- Mr. Bergstemhad r the herculean work of the evening_and_ wrestled with it valiantly, notwithstanding the fact that he r sometimes came to grief, as in the difficult solo, 12 ... 10 ... 10 THE CHICAGO TRIBUNE: SUNDAY. MAY 28, IB7G—SIXTEEN PAGES. “Is not his word like a fire?” It is to be said, however, that he exhibited a knowledge of the score and its demands, although it was not always within the resources of his vocal ability to give a clear expression of that knowledge. The double quartette with chorus, 4 4 For lie shall send Ills Angels, 41 was marred by want of harmony, and the Angel Trio was spoiled from the very outset by the falseness of the second soprano. Mr. Eddy’s accompani ments are beyond praise. 4 ‘Artistic” is the exact word for them. Von Billow .Beethoven Society This virtually covers the ground of the perform ance. Making all the allowances for the dimen sions of the work and the inexperience of the So ciety with oratorio music, which is a study perte, it is, on the whole, entitled to credit, especially for Its manifest effort to do its best. At its next per formance of oratorio, with longer study and more rigid rehearsals, there Is no reason why it should not make a great improvement. It is no fault not to give oratorio well on » first performance. The Societies of this country which have an oratorio reputation are which have made it a study of years. We have tried to indicate the short-comings of the Society with reference to “that future work, and with the kindest of intentions, with no other ob ject in view than the hope that the Beethoven So ciety in the Chicago Oratorio Society of the future. There is no nobler work to which it can devote it self, and the performance of Thursday night indi cates a decided possibility in that direction. Carl Rosa has just completed his second spring season of English opera. Full houses and enthu siastic audiences have been the rule, and Mr. Rosa may now fairly claim to have made English opera a complete success in England. His second Lon don season will begin in September, for which all the American members of the company (Mr. Packard, tenor, Miss Gaylord, soprano, and Miss York, contralto), who appeared to have become quite popular with John Bull, are under engage ment. The steady growing popularity of Miss Julia Gaylord, unaccompanied with anything iu way of special advertising or writlng-up, indicates the possession on her part of genuine merit The English papers appear to be untie uniform in fa vorable criticisms, and describe her as being a careful, painstaking artist of positive dramatic ability, with a very sympathetic and powerful voice, which she has under good control and uses with good effect Her pleasing face and good stage presence also receive frequent uud favorable mention. A benefit concert will be given to the excellent ’cello player, Mambard Elchhcim, at Standard Hall on the 6th of June, the proceeds of which, it is understood, are to be applied to the purchase of a new instrument for him. So good a player de serves the best instrument that can be found, and his friends'should see to it that he bos it. The programme will include Beethoven’s trio for piano, clarinet, and’cello, not often played here (Messrs. Wolfsohn, Lebrun, and Eichheiiii); Galtemiau’s concerto for’cello (Mr. Eichhelm); two etailes and the Berceuse, Chopin (Mr. Wolfsohn); tbu Brahms quartette for piano, violin, viola, and ’cello (Messrs. Wolfsohn, Lewis, Allen, and Eieli heiml; and the following vocal numbers; Scena and aria from “Dcr Frcischuctz,” and Ardlti’s Waltz (Miss Brcndol), and Eascr’s •‘Singer’s Curse” (Mr. CiiU). ANOTHER POSSIBLE PRIMA DONNA. Tbe following letter relative to the progress Mroe. Van Schoonhovcn (Lena IluatrcUcr) is making in her studies at Milan speaks for itself. It was written to Mr. Gustavus Geary, her old teacher here Milak, Italy, May 11, 1870. Prof. Gcstavus Gkarv— Dear air: Pardon the liberty I take in addressing you, which I do un der the auspices of one of your late nnpiis. Mmc. Helene Van Schoonhovcn. Having the pleasure of continuing the course of her musical instruction, permit me to congratulate you on the success of her earlv training. 1 assure you U has much to do with the rapid progress she is now making, which.l may say is unprecedented in all my musical experience. It will no doubt be a gratification to you, ns well as the many friends of this musical enthusiast, to hear that I am sanguine of her success and predict a re markable career for the young and talented lady. With kind wishes, believe me very truly yours, Jl. Gto. Batto Lasipeuti. LOCAL MISCELLANY. Mrs. Eugenic dc Roode-Uicc has returned from her engagement with the Camilla Urso company, and taken up her residence on Washington avenue, in Hyde Park, for the ensuing year.

The lastnumbcronthcpro-raminc, llaydn s “Kinder Symphony," given under the direction -of Mr. .T. liattsteadt, was well given and created very general interest. Tiic New York Herald has the following count of Miss Van Eisner’s (of Bloomington, 111.,) debut iu London a few days ago: “ Miss Van Eisner made her debut as Isabella, in “Robert 1c Diablo,” at Drury Lane to-night, wisely taking a secondary part under Mine. Nilsson’s kindly care. I have just returned at midnight from Drury Lane, luiving witnessed the performance of three acts.

These performances will bb succeeded by per formances of chamber music: and Handel s Lc Dcum ” will be given by all the singing societies of Philadelphia ou the Fourth of July. Lucy Hooper writes from Paris; “It ia whis pered that Verdi is writing a grand opera, In five MH entitled “King Lear,” the libretto being, of course, adapted from the tragedy of btoUapoare. The difficulty in producing it will lie in the fact th« modem stage possesses no basso profundo that the composer considers worthy of personating the hero. 11 . The London Choir speaks thus of Rubinstein s plavim’ of Beethoven’s bonata, opos i>3, at the T'hilharmonic concert in that city.

Mile Pappcnhcim, Mme. Pahniere, and then Minnie Ilauck, who has hud so remarkable a success in Vienna and elsewhere in Austria. THE DRAMA. IN' CHICAGO. A GLANCE BACKWARD. The season has dosed. Its results may now be summed up. If we could pry Into the pri vate accounts of the managers we should doubt less find that it has been the most unsatisfac tory season, in a financial sense, since the early days of the War. But we have neither the ability nor the desire to examine too closely the business departments of the theatres. If we con show the gains and losses of dramatic art, and the reasons for them, enough will have been accomplished. THE SUMMER SEASON OP 18*3 must still be green in the memories of habitual theatre-goers. Daly’s company produced “ The .Big Bonanza” ut McViekcr’s Theatre, June 13, and continued it two weeks. The third week Morton’s “ Women of the Day ” was given. Then began, at Hooley's Theatre, July 5, the memorableruujof “The Two Orphans,” which, to the surprise of public, actors, managers, and all the rest of the world, was extended over six weeks, and was ended at last because the com pany could remain here no longer. NEW CHICAGO THEATRE. This brilliant success was an encouraging pre lude to the opening of the fall season, and gave foundation to many air-castles which fate was soon to overthrow. Aug. 16, the New Chicago Theatre opened. Never was a grand enterprise more hastily and Injudiciously undertaken. The date of opening was many weeks too early; the place hud not uccu bullidently advertised, and the play chosen for the first performance was a farrago of nonsense. The night was insuffera bly hot; the bouse was not half filled; and under these depressing surroundings the company went heavily through the play of “Tom Vcnryu . The Chicago Theatre never recovered from the blow It received that night. It lingered along for seven weeks, giving, besides “Tom Pcnryn,” “Old Heads and Young Hearts, 1 ’ “Hearts and Diamonds,” “Pauline, 11 and “The Two Orphans.” Then the company was taken ont on a traveling tour, and finally disbanded. It con tained such artists as Mr, Louis James, Mr. Ar nott, Mr. Chippendale, Mr. Whillcn, Miss Tracy, amt Miss Gilman. It was not by any means a .complete company, wanting most of all a leading lady of higher abilities than Miss Tracy; but It was good enough to deserve success. It might have had success, if it had begun its seven weeks of trial in the middle of September, instead of in the middle of August, and had shown the re sults of more judicious management la other re spects. M’VICEEB’S THEATRE opened Thursday, Ang. ID, with Edwin Adams and "Olancarty” as the attractions. They con tinued three weeks and three days, miserably poor audiences being the invariable rule during the en tire engagement. “ ttunninga Corner,” a Chicago play, was put on Sept. 13 for three weeks, and en joyed a tolerable success. Then followed the • ‘ Sea of Ice” for one week; John McCullough one week; Lotta one night, and "Sea of Ice” re mainder of Hie week: James Lewis (Nov. 1) one week in "The Big Bonanza;'-’ lho - Licdc_rkrana in opera one week; Jane Coombs (Nov. In) one week; “The Jewess,” represented by the stock company, one week; Barry Sullivan (Nov. 20) one week; May Howard (Dec. 0) two weeks; Baker and Farron one week; Oates Opera Troupe (Dec. 271 two weeks; Jarrelt & Palmer's Suakspcarean pageant of “Ucnry V. (Jan. 10) two weeks: Minnie Palmer one week; Ben 1)0 Bar one week; the Florences in “Tho Minhtv Dollar” (Feb. 7) two weeks; John T. Ray mond’in "Col. Sellers” (Feb. 21) two weeks; “Married in Ilaste,” with John Dillon and compa ny, one week; " Emma Waller in “Guy Manner -1,;,," one week: John E. Owens (March 20) two weeks; April 3 stock company in comedy one ■week; Edwin Booth (April 10) four weeks; Mag gie Mitchell (May 8) three weeks. WOOD’S MUSEUM opcncdMonday, Sept 7, with aludicronspertorrn ance of "Around the World In Eighty Days,” which continued two weeks. Fch. 14 a new play called “Devotion," with Mr. Louis James in the principal part, was produced and had a tolerable success. March 3 another new play, “Household Gods,” was brought out. It proved to he n mass of absurdities, and was withdrawn after three per formances. March 20 Edward Byron plavcd an engagement of one week, giving a creditable per formance, for n boy, in “The Fool a l'.cvengo and failing completely in “Richard HI. March 27 Miss liattle Johnson made an unsatisfactory de but iu “The Hunchback;” she retiree at the close of the week. These arc the only events of the sea son at Wood's wortny of record. OTHER PLACES OF AMUSEMENTS. Ilooloy’s Theatre was need by the California Minstrels through the season, except during the brilliant engagement of the Kellogg Opera Troupe elsewhere noticed, and for the last few weeks. April 21, Katie Putnam began an engagement of one week; May 1, the Salsbury Troubadours came; May 8, the Duly company, which has just closed, opened a three weeks' engagement in “Pique. The Adclphi had a prosperous season of three weeks, beginning Kov. la, when “Around the World” was played by the Kiralfy company to large audiences. . , , . . Kew Chicago Theatre has been deserted much of the time since the stock company left It. Kelly & Leon’s Minstrels played an unprofitable of two mouths before the close of last year. May 1, Hooiey’s Minstrels opened, and seem to be in the way of giving prestige and reputation to the house. NEW PLAYS. Besides the nficonsidercd trifles already men tioned os produced at Wood’s Museum—“ Devo tion ” and ‘ * Household Gods a number of more importantdramntlc productions have been effected during the past season. “Hearts and Diamonds,” by a Chicago gentleman, had no success at the Kew Chicago Theatre, while “Running a Corner,” by the same author, brought out atMcwcKcTs Theatre, run for three weeks with gratifying re sults. The different degrees of success enjoyed by those nieces is no criterion of their merit. Aotu in" cuuld succeed, under the circumstances, at the Sow Chicago Theatre. It is said, indeed, that the managers did not have one audience that paid ex penses during the seven weeks career of the stock company in tuts city. Dec. 0% May Howard produced a piece of no great consequence by Col. Barnes, of California, called “Solid Silver.’ Jan. k-*, Min nie Palmer brought out a flimsy niece written c.-{»C; cially for her and entitled “Laughing Byca. Feb. 7, the Florences Introduced the grotesqueand successful “Mighty Dollar.” March 0, “Married in Haste, ” one of Henry J. Byron’s new comedies, was produced for the lirst time in Chicago by Mc- Vicker’* company, assisted by John Dillon. It was generally admired and praised. March-0, “Our Boys, ” by the same author, was represented for the first time in this city by John E. Owens and McVicker’s company. “Around the World m EHity Day's,” already noticed as having been given at the Adolphi, Kov. in. was a new play. “Pique,” just withdrawn fromUoolcy slhcatrc, is a recent A’ew York success, and new to Chicago. ‘ * Nannettc O’Wearithorne, ” brought out by Mag gie Mitchell Monday night, was a failure. THE ACTOR 3 NEW TO CHICAGO who came forward during the past season were, for the most part, such callow' beginners as Winnie Palmer, Miss Uattic Johnson, and Mr. Edwin Byron. There were some strange faces in the Kcw Chicago company, but few people saw them. Mr. Louis Jumos was the most important addition to our list of theatrical acquaintances. He had lived for many years in Chicago before going on the stage, and only in the last year made the attempt to pursue his chosen profession in his horae-cliy, with what success the public knows. It knows also that Mr. James is a thoroughly conscientious and cultivated actor, and will dud unrcciution he missed here. Barrv bulUvan may De considered almost a new acquaintance, having been so many years absent from this country. George Riguotd. the handsome and unintelligent representative of Henry V was a stranger, fco, in a sense, were Mr. F. B. Marde and Miss Cum mins, who supported Mr. Booth handsomely. Mr. Whiffcn, of the Kcw Chicago company, was an unfamiliar face on the dramatic stage, though ne has often played here in burlesque. Miny other new acquaintances, few of them either valuable or agreeable, have been made by the frequenters of the Chicago theatres during the season P*wt, but lest this reView should become a mere catalogue or names this chapter of it bad best be abruptly closed. FAVOIIITE PLAYS. Those interested In statistics will be glad to know how the standard plays have been treated daring the season past. Leaving out of view, then, the ephemeral productions—such as 4 4 Running a Cor ner.” ‘ * The Mighty Dollar, ” 44 C01.

TUB SUMMER SEASON Is to begin this week witli Rose Eytinge and a spe cial dramatic company at Ilooley’s Theatre in **■ Rose Michel. ” Miss Eytinge has never played in Chicago. She has the reputation of being one of the most powerful and finished actresses on the American stage. Many of the New York critics place tier at the very head of the profession. Not much can be expected of the company which sup iiorta her, but the scenery has been brought here from New York, and all the original effects will be produced in the same manner as at the Union Square Theatre, New York- After “Rose Michel 1 ’ leaves us other attractions will follow, and if the weather is ut all tolerable the dramatic season of this sum mer will rival* that of last year. Until this good time is past, we shall defer noticing the arrange ments of the managers for the regular fall and win ter season. NOTES AND ANNOUNCEMENTS. Bclvil Ryan, the Inimitable Eccles , is to appear in that character in a special performance at the New Chicago Theatre this (Sunday) night, lie will have the assistance of Miss Thompson as Polly Eccies, and other local actors in the remainder of the cast. Mr. Frank Aiken will impersonate Bob Briefly in “The Ticket of Leave Man” at Col. Wood's Museum this week, every night and Wednesday and Saturday matinees. At the other matinees * ‘ The Chimney Comer ” and * k Loan of a Lover 1 will be represented. McVickct’s Theatre Is closed. There is rumor of an intention on the part of Crane, O’Neil, Miss Hawthorne, and the rest, to secure it for a week, if possible, and give a performance of gome kind for the benefit of whom it may concern. Mr. Crane, as already noticed In* Tub Tribune, has been in town for some days. “The Mission of the Fairies,” a sacred drama, will be given Thursday and Friday evening of this week at the Church of the Redeemer, comer of Washington and Sangamon streets. The motive of this play is a rivalry between Fairies and Brown ies as to which shall accomplish most good; and many touching scenes ate set forth in the develop ment of the plot. This drama, already a favontc In the Eastern cities, is now brought out for the first time by a Western Sunday-school. Admis sion twenty-five cents. Uoolcv's Minstrels will offer this week at the New Chicago*Theatre a programme almost entirely new. The overture and chorus to the first part will be “Princess Trcbizondc”; the usual comic duties will be sumr by Ulce and Hart; Percy Ashton will sing “Belle Brandon,”and Hurt, Itke, and Brock way will offer a sketch called ‘ * Examination Day. ’ The second purl contains the usual specialties of Kicc, Hart, Newcomb, and Mac; and the perform ance concludes with the ouce-fumous sketch en titled “The Court of Appeals,” in which Judge linnulon has a conspicuous part. Mr. R. M. Dooley has been persuaded by bis friends to benefit by two performances at McVick er's Theatre next Saturday afternoon and night. Mr. William 11. Crane has agreed to t>lay over and play on both occasions. The entertainment will be a of a miscellaneous nature, and, It is believed, unusually enjoyable. Inasmuch as Mr. Uoolcy has had but two benefits before In thirty-one years, and as the people of Chicago arc indebted to him in a special sense, the attendance should be large, and the returns at the bos-oflice substantial. Tua hopes that they may be so. Some of the beautiful souvenirs presented to pa trons of the Union Square Theatre on the occasion of the 100th representation of “ Rose Micbcl ’ have found their way West. They are littlebooks, beautifully bound in blue satin and gilt, contain ing a complete history of the Union Square Thea tre, casts of all the plays produced there, and de tailed notices of the principal successes, such as 1 * Led Astrav,” 4 4 The Two Orphans, ” and * 4 Rose Michel.” Of the merit of the latter the people of Chicago have opportunity to judge this week, when it will be presented at llooley's Theatre, with Hose Eytiugc in the titular role. Mr P. Burbank is meeting with flattering success in the independent Sunday Amusement Course which he has established. This afternoon he and a number of other artists will give the last entertainment iu McCormick Hall for the season. The programme includes music by the Imperial Quartette (Messrs. Baron, Cook, Lcraont, and Wilkie) and Signor Carrozzl; a reading of ““The Creeds of the Bells,” by .Miss Hattie Johnson; “Rip Van Winkle” (after the sleep), and the grave-digger scene from “Hhmlet, by Mr. Bur bank. Nest Sunday the entertainment will be given in the New Chicago Theatre. The Garden City Dramatic Association take pleasure, in announcing another of their dramatic entertainments for Friday, June 2. for the benefit of the Memorial Episcopal Church, at Concordia Hall, on Twenty-second srrect, between «abash avenue and State street. This ball has recently changed hands, has been thoroughly cleaned and renovated, and the stage has been remodeled and famished with new scenery. The play to be pro duced on this occasion is the beautiful drama in two acts entitled 44 The Charcoal Burner,” with the following cast; _ , n . Poynet Anion Fred Richardson Godfrey Harrington P -_P lately Valentine Verdict Caleb Brown J- Rdmund Esdalc.'. A. B. Gago Edßh Harrington- Jim. F. liichardjon Barbara Jones Hotli&rGrumble. ..MissL. ♦ ail Tho performance will conclude with the petite lo cal comedy, “The Follies of Etiquette.' THE OTTTEK AVOEM). NEW YORK NEWS. The principal dramatic event of the week in New York was the performance of “As You Like It ” for the benefit of Miss Fanny Daven port at the Fifth Avenue Theatre Wednesday afternoon. Miss Davenport played Rosalind, Mr. Barrett Orlando, Mr. E. L. Davenport Jacques, Mr. Davidge Touchstone, Mr. Fisher Adam, Sidney Cowell Audrey. Mr. William Castle, the opera-singer, sang the original music of the part of Arhlens. The cast, it will be seen, is destined to have a place in dramatic annals. The performance was in every respect brilliant and delightful. The Fifth Avenue Theatre during the remainder of the week (except Saturday night, when “A Serious Family 1 and “ Pocahontas ” were given for Davidge s bene fit) was devoted to the representation of “ Pique,” which is to run up to its 200th night. Wallack’s season closed with seven representa tions of Boucieault’s “ How Sim Loves Him." “ Julius Cmsar” was revived, with the original cast, for one week only, at Booth s. U°n science " ran regularly at the Union Square, but was taken off Friday night for the benefit of Mrs. Wilkins. Thursday afternoon, Mr. Charles Thorne had a benefit, playing *»• Thomas Clifford In “The Hunchback,™ with the aasistance only of the regular company. “Brass” was given thron'Mi the week at the Brooklyn Iheatre. “Uncle Tom’s Cabin,” with Mrs. Howardua Topstjs and Bijou Ucron as Aco, was the attraction at the Park. GRSBN-KOOM NOTES. Harry Beckett is going back to burlesque. The Loudon Globe Theatre Is performing “Cryp toconchoidsyphonostomato.” with great applause. J. K.
