Dion Bourcicault on kodern Acting^" The critcisms upon tho modern school of acting, contained in a letter addressel by the distinguished author of " London Assurance," to the New York Tribune, strike us as so wholesome and round that we with pleasure giro the letter place in the columns of the Star. If the theatrical critic of the Tribune is a man of candor ho will own up to having roctivod a first class lesson administered in unexceptionable style: Toth* Editor of the N. Y. Tribune: >ia: In your criticism upon my comedv, ' London Assurance," in this day s Tribune, you take exception to the manner in which I render the character ot Dazzle. The jrreat critical acumen for which your dramaticcriti cisms are very justly celebrated induces me to reply to your remarks You ray, "Mr Dour cicHult s Dazzle lacks fascinating brilliancy," and '? the easy, dashing impudcnco which "are Dazzle s sole stocR in trade are not present in Mr. Jbourcicault's personation." I believe it has been tho custom to represent this charac ter as an airy, brilliant, active, bustling fel low, one of tho heir looms of tho stage : how ever laughable such an impersonation may he, it is not true to nature. I have nerer met any such type of character in English societv. The character of Dazzle is one well known in Loudon?you have often seen his portrait in Punch. lie is the easy, quiet, phlegmatic man about town. In appearance be closely resembles the baxon aristocrat, and none but those who arc born and bred in English hieh lite can distinguish between his '? assurance" and the pulishod ease of high rank. The ! r-uglish fast man is in manner very slow, his drawl both in gait and specch are his pecu larity, and the humor of tho character con sists )n the fashionable stoicism and phlegm with which he undertakes all kinds of emo | lions Charles Courtly, who is fresh to the uissipations of London Life, betrays all those animal spirits consistent with youth?he dash es into the stream; but Dazzle has gone rough ail that?he does not join young Courtly in his vagaries, he protects him. in fact puts him through"' his difficulties with the practised assurance of an old hand, and with all the cool deoision of experience. Such ?a character is inconsistent with tho gay aud ttuughtless devil may-care fellow, which I readily recognize as the conventional stajre trickster of the old school and may be very elective, but it is not true. It may make an artistic performance, but it is not a p?-r trait from life. My view of the character was taken by Mr Charles Mathews, who originally played it. and with admirable effect . r:art tXHOt,y after the original, wLo still flourished in London where he is as popular as ever. I watched the audience on Monday night with much curiosity, as I felt aware that the character I was representing was one with idiosyncrasy of which they were not acquainted ; and it gave me extreme sat isfaction to find that they caught with admira ble perception at the individuality, nor did a single point escape them. There was scarcely a line I uttered, or a gesture given, but was saluted with an explosion of laughter. In your strictures upon my style as an actor, perhaps you are quite right. I differ, on principle, fundamentally with the present school of acting. I believe it to be wrong ah initio. It is in fact acting and not nature In Comedy there is extravagance of gesture, iacial distortion and affected utterance, in stead of those natural intonations of voice, easy carriage, and play of the eye which should betray rather than expose the charac ter assumed. In tho Tragic school I believe that volume of voice supplies the place of in tensity of feeling There is no repose; the poetry is ono glaro of the lidless dragon-eyed monster of modern Tragedy in search of points crunching the dialogue There is no group ing of tenderness with pain, no antagonism of character, no perspective in the passion. The action is a rack on which the pertormer writhes in monotonous anguish The Drama is a pe ?iestal on which one solitary creation is up lifted, lixe Prometheus on a monument, howl ing at the gods. In the study of the stage, to which I have devoted my intellect and my life, I havo formed these earnest convictions. You must not accept my own performance as a sample of my system, being as yet but a backward pupil iu my owu school. Those characters in which I have appeared were faithfully stud ied and drnwn from perfon? whom I have met with in life, and it has giveu lue deep gratifi cation to observe that the public have ac cepted these portraits, and for the sake of their intellectual worth have overlooked any faults they have seen in their artistic execu tion. Allow me to add that my comedy. London Assurance, as played on Mondav night and now playing at Wallack's Theater, was (ex cepting in my own part and one or twu other as well and bettor played than by the great original cast at Covent Garden Theater I am yours respectfully, Dion Eourcioadlt. American Ana. <>n a bright sunny morning, early in Feb ruary, 17S/6, says Thomas, in his Reinini* cences,. might have been seen entering my bookstore in Charleston, S. C., a fine looking tlorid complcxioned old gentleman, with hair white as suow, which, contrasted with his own complexion, showed him to have been a free liver, a bon vivant of the first order Along with hit* was a tall, gawky looking, flaxen haired stripling, apparently of the ago from sixteon to eightocn, with a complexion of a good parchment color, beardless chin, an l a? much iissumed solf-consequence as any two footed animal I ever saw. This was' John Randolph I handed him from the shelves volume afcor volume, which he tumbled care le*ely over, an*J handed back again. At length ho hit upon something that struck his fancy. My eye happened to bo fixed upon hi* face at tho moment, and never did 1 witness so sud den, so perfect a chango of the human coun tenancc. That which before was dull and heavy, in a moment became animated and flushed with the brightest beams of intellect Ilo stepped up to the old gray headed gentle man, and, giving him a thundering slap on the shoulder, said "Jack, lock at this!" I was young then, but 1 never can forget the thought that rushed upon my mind at the mo ment, which was that he was the most impu dent youth I ever saw. lie bad come to Charleston to attend the races. There was then living in Charleston a Scotch baronet by the name of Sir John Nesbit, with his younger brother Alexander, of the ancient house of Ne&bit, of Dean liall, some fifteen miles from Edinburgh. Sir John was a very handsome man, and as " gallant gay Lothario" as could bo found in the city. He and Randolph be came intimate, which led to a banter between them for a race, in which each was to ride his own horse The ra *e came off the same week, and Randolph won; some of the ladies ex exclaiming as the time, '-though Mr Ran dolph bad won the race, Sir John had won their hearts." This was not so much to be wondered at when you contrasted the elegant and graceful style of the baronet with the un couth and awkward manner of his competitor. <4 Who do you think I met under the gallery of the House of Commons?" said John Ran dolph to a gentleman. ** You can't guess, and so I'll tall you. There m a spruce, dap per litUe gentleman sitting next to me, and he made some trifling remark, to which A re plied. We then entered into conversation, and I found him a most fascinating, witty fel low.
