There are wme fine reflections on the drama contained in the following extract from en English paper: That which reflects humanity must partake iti complexity, must be modified la like man rer by climate and culture, and knowledge, and intercourse Thus the drama in all conn tries has had a twofold relation It bas re flected humanity io the abstraot, and national character in particular. It has served as a mirror both to man and to sections of men How riridly the Greek it re produced in bia tragedies?free, fervid, heroic, artistic, reli gious. How accurately the Spaniard, by Lope and Calderon, in that proud self-esteem which colors all his passions with such a singular gravity How happily the Frenchman, from Moliere down to Scribe, in ? II bis shrewdness, vivacity, and elegant skepticism. And need we say with what vigor Shaksreare has painted the Englishman, from his Bolingbroke ard Hotspur, his Baatard and Talbot, down to his (lower and Hubert, his Falstaff and Shallow. I But national character is progressive. There is, first, a long interval before it is formed There is next a period, long or short, before it attains to refinement. The drama, then, becomes a twofold mirror to man, both of that which is susceptible of expansion and change What, then, it may be asked, is the relation of the stage to humanity ? The stage mar be oonsidered simply a mirror of progress It reflects the special mind of the age it belongs ti. It presents to as humanity as seen through the media of tbuse successive tastes and feel ings which progress evolves. A national char acter may bo either passionate or thoughtful, artistic or military. Time serves to expand and to balance its featured till they have reached a due adjustment of vigor aid grace A drama will become one of the records o' this progress ; the stage its exponent %* each particular step. It we turn, then, to America, we see why she possesses no national drama; she yet got to develop a nutimal character Enpli.-h in origin, she has gradually become tho cruci ble iu which Europe ^lepo^its yearly everv possible variety of blood, thought and senti merit; and until these have had time to fuse and be reproduced ia an imperial unify. cuch a* England herself has already exhibited. America, who partakes in our language and literature, must be oontent still tosarvey her self in our national mirror. We come then to the question of the Ancr ican stag#?which, destined of course, to run tue sime racc as our own. rcflectirg tbw We?t ern mind at every point of its progress, till it culminate in a period most conducive to art presents to us, und especially with reference tu oomedy, Mr Murdoch as the exponent ut her stage as it is. We have propounded the rule that the n^e u.akei the act-.r , and we must assert thi* with J irticular reference to comedy, since that re flects manners in addition to passions. We can scarcely, therefore, consider it a charge against Mr Murdoch that he is wanting in r?pose and the higher kind of refinement. The time is not cume for these qualities Westward Till a country is settled, and has attained wealth and leisure, it is clear it cannot develop the highest features of taste. America is thought ful, courageous, iuventive and vigorous. This is her present phase, evolved by her many and imperative wants; and need we say, that this phase is bui a step to a speedy and still nobler development . if faithful, then, to the highest idea of bis time, Mr Murdoch does not present to us the highest idea of a comedian, wa gladly ac kuonlodge bis obvious approach to it, and the fulness with which he rasponds to his national t pe, in all bis manhood, hie shrewdness, bis warmth and ei j.yment. Let u? take bim in detail. Mr Murdoch is essentially a manly c-median , and manliness, need we say, ie a quality that is never lost on an English spoc iator Of a good height and ;per*j?:, with a pleasant, vivid face, and a 41 ear, ringing voice, be has all that positive basis of muscles and spirit whizh fully warrants his power of doing all be proposes ; a condition, it will be owned, which wonderfully sustains both illu Mon and pleasure. There is a great common sense in dramatic enjoyment; and viiea a man talks of knocking down T^aues ex carry ing off Venuses, we like to see the possibility, whether it be evidonoed or not. Another merit is his spirit, which is really unquenchable, and if only held in hand, would be among his happiest resources. As it is, its exuberance becomes a defect, since, in wanting repose, be, at times, wants variety. Another, and, per haps, a still higher characteristic, is his tho rough enjoyment .Those who are old enough to remembf; i.1* liston that most joyous of actors, or one who in most respects was his worthy associate, the buoyant Mrs. (}jo??r, will appreciate the value cl this latler distinction Need we say thai it is amoag the rarest of oomic re?ou?oes, and that while it lies at the rout ui the greatest pomio success, in kindling the sympathies and warmth of an audience, it even touches a moral chord in the excited spectator He who enjoys art respects it, und quickly extends tnat respect to all who behold niui. Ho shows a Bense of completeness in becoming thorough, ly identified with what he assumes?a fulfcli 11 g his own end, in being true to his own gifts, which must command our approval whue it awakens our sympathies This merit Mr. Murdoch pvi?6i?ei abuudantlv Through all hi". Jaugera and adventures he bounds vita such an evideut sense of delight, thai it really seems in his worst scrapes tv create a rnorul immunity. We can,uo? aclp feeling that he is unconscious th?t be is doing anything wr^ig, and as we are soon led to share the foiling. me are greatly obliged to him. By dwelling on the?? qualities we are not denying to Mr- Murdooh either art or intelli ence. lie nr.a both to a great degree, as he as shown in bis Young Mirabel; in the mode varies the several scenes with and escapes from his afflanced, and the well sustained spirit with which he encounters the Bravos; the hilarity that plays with the very point 01 the poinard, and especially in the i*?anner with which ho meets his indignity, his sudden fury, and almost as buuiicn Nlf-putMStion. Another fact in h'u favor is be derives no ls sistance fr^u me plays he has appeared iu, ti<a ?ne being antiquated and of a question able taste, and the other technical, farcical, and very dull in addition. We could only compare him to one uf his own Western steam ers dragging up against stream a most un. conscionabla load. How to Frightex Dogs ?The sudden adop tion of some unusual or grotesque attitude will often succeed in frightening dogs as w??ll as other fierce animals Waterton relates bis ' own marvellous escape from a herd of buffa lo?8 in South Amcrica by an expedient of 1 this kind A man still living related to mo j an adventure of his own, which may be useful to know He had to cross a narrow bridge, and a 6avage dog appeared at the other end, whom it seemed impostiblt to escape. With great presence of mind he fixed his eye stead ily upon the dog, and gradnally lowered his 1 bead and shortened his figure by crouchiog down low with his hands on his knees The , dog stood still, and seemed astonished, when the man began stamping hard with bis feet, and in this attitude aivanced towards the dog, making all the noise he could with his ? feet; but the moment he began to march thus beating time, the dog turned away and ran off in a perfect fright.?Notes and Quertef. .
