NEW YORK HERALD. >ew fork. TuMdny, May 14, 1H44. The Next Steamer from Europe. Highly Important News Expected. O'Conncll In Prison and the Corn Klchangt In Taara! The steamer "Britannia," Captain He wctt, sailed from Liverpool on the 4th inat., and inay very reasonably be expected here on Saturday, this week, or on Monday of next week. It .8 probable, however, that according to immemorial custom or accident, the steamer will arrive on Sunday at Boston ; and if bo, wc shall he prepared again to run < Auauiuiiiiiiv overianu c..?i?cao, >" the office of the New York Herald, and for the express purpose of giving the whole country, south and west, the important news that may come by this steamer, one day in advance of the mails, and one day in advance of the entire newspaper press of this city. We give all our CbteniporariBs here fair warning, and we dare the whole of them, united, to enter into the field against us in this approaching arrival. If we do not beat them as usual, why then we shall consent to eat up the whole Tyler party of the Union, at one mouthlul, and swallow it from shoulders to tail at one gulp. The news expected by the " Britannia" will be very important. We may have the result ol the application made by Daniel O'Connell and hits coconspirators for anew trial. And u is highly probable that this application will meet with a denial, and that the Court ha9 immediately proceeded to pass sentence on that distinguished man, including all the ' rent" in his pocket. It is thus very probable that lie is in lllison bv thw fimp unH if no ivp ?h,?ll publish the first account of his incarceration, with all the particulars of the tremendous excitement j in Dublin and throughout Ireland, and the state of the question of political reform in England. In deep and ardent sympathy for the people of Ireland, we yield to none. No one regards with more sincere and unaffected regret, than we, the distresses, the oppressions, the privations, the terrible grinding under the hoof of tyranny, under which the brave, chivalric, warm-hearted natives of that lovely island suffer. Hut to the same extent that we sympathize with the Irish people in their sufferings?to that extent do we entertain un uncontrollable and unutterable contempt for the duplicity of that Dan O'Conuell, whose whole object, for the last quarter of a century, has been, by plundering these poor people, to make a living out of thetn, that he couldn't get to the same extent out of his profession as a lawyer, or his exertions as a politician. By the ' falsehoods?hy the deceptive promises?by the perplexing agitation of that wholesale calumniator, thousands and thousands of the people have been prevented from leaving that impoverished and unhappy land, to seek in this free country, the reward which sobriety, virtue and industry, are sure to bestow on the good citizens ol all climes, who conduct themselves in a right spirit. Every day?every week? very month only adds to the burden of the oppressions and sufferings which weight the Irish people to the earth; and, probably, no man has been instrumental in inttio?in? mm.i. ?..;i ..?a ? much distress on his country, us this O'Connell, who, whilst plundering the poor people of their few pennies, has been sedulously endeavoring, under the hypocritical gnrb of patriotism, to rivet still more closely the chaius of the oppressive ini? narclual government of Great Britain and Ireland. A monarchist?a Jesuit of the first water?a rapacious tyrant when in power, and a miserable, drivelling creature when out of power, O'Connell has been one of the worst curses inflicted on urhappy Ireland. We have seen enough of the spirit and working of O'Connellism, in Mew York and throughout this country, to make the American people take care that its further introduction be effectually stayed. For the chivalric, generous, virtuous, imaginative, and industrious Irish people, we cherish the most profound respect and the most cordial esteem. We shall always support them in the enjoyment of their constitutional rights and liberties. We shall always aid them to the fullest extent of our power, in the maintenance of their rightful privileges. But towards ah those who deceive them?whether it be O'Connell, Bishop Hughes, or the little beggerinan, John M'Keon, or any others who lead them into error, we shall wage a war of extermination. We never shall desist till we see the Irish people free?free to act out their own noble and generous imputes as good American citizens, under our glorious constitution. It will be seen, therefore, that the news expected by this steamer is of the highest importance, and every one may accordingly look out for its earliest publication at this office. News fkom Europe.?It is fair for every editor to give credit to whom credit is due. We notice that the Charleston Patriot, and one or two other papers at the South, ccpy the last news brought by the Hibernia, and give credit to the Sun. This ih very unfair. The Patriot states that an ! T\ . , express Wds run by h broker. This w a mistake. The only express sent from Boston to New York, on the arrival of the Hibernia, was run exclusively by us, at an ex|>ense of $500; we published thb news exclusively here, and sent extras throughout the country, ahead of every one. If these extras did not reach the different cities in advance of all others, it was the fault of Postmaster Wicklifie, and not ours This fact we wish to impress upon every editor. We should suppose, by this time, that such papers as the Patriot ought to know to whom they are constantly indebted for news. We spend money enough and take pains the rno9t unwearied to dispatch the latest intelligence, and if editors, in return, cannot give proper credit for our industry and enterprise?all we can do. is to stop sending to t hem. Mismanagement in the Post Office.?No post office was ever managed as ours is and has beer under Wickliffe. We daily hear of complaints and daily suffer from the utter negligence of some of those in the department. Tins morning we received letters from Washington that ought to have been here last Friday night. We suppose that we -hall he compelled to put up with such negligence till the present Postmaster (leneral goes out of power. To get rid of him would he a perfect rtrodand, and we really hope that the President will either kick him out or send imn as consul to some out of the way island, where he can do no harm to his fellow creatures The Fine Arts.?The taste for the fine arts is very rapidly increasing in this city, and the desire to possess good pictures is becoming more and nnre general amongst the wealthy classes). At present we have a variety of attractive exhibitions. lie National Acaaeiny attracts crowds of visitors, specially in the evenings when the rooms are thronged with beauty and fashion. At Clinton Hall, the tine gallery of old paintings by the best masters of the Italian school, has been very well attended. A sale of these very valuable pictures takes place on the 22d inst., which will undoubted* Iy attract the attention of connoisseurs. We perceive also, from an advertisement in our columns to-day, that another gallery of paintings has been opened at the Oranite Buildings, corner of Broadway and Chambers street This contains a remarkably choice collection, some of them ot great value. __________ Phsnix Hoasr. Bazaar.?This Bazaar situated at N'os. 189 and 191 Mercer next to Bleecker street, is at all tunes well supplied with horses, carriages and saddlery, and will be found well worth a look in, to such gentlemen as want to supply themselves with any articles hi the line of the proprietor. The advertisement which apt?ears in another part ot our columns, presents strong inducements lor a visit to this Ba/aar. The Amend* Honorable. [From tho Tribune) ; The Herald, Bennett, H. Wikofk and Fa? ny Eusler.?'We have clone injustice, and w hasten to correct it, even though the suhject b JAine.s Gordon Bennett. We published as true Mi H. Wikofl's account of the corns? of the Heral towards Mile. L'lssler, itsinducetnents thereto, an ' the presents to Bennett which, according to W kotl's story, were extorted Irotn the dancer by he I fears and dread of attacks through the Herald. W do not remember that we expressly characterize Bennett's conduct in the premises as infamous, hi we certainly so considered and exhibited it. Bi Mr. Bennett, by the publication (perfectly justifi.i ble, under the circumstances,) of a series ol jirivat letters to himself from Wikoff, while acting a Eissler's secretary or agent, has shown that the at surd nulls, anecdotes, defences,&c.. of the dancet which were so conspicuously inserted in the Herald throughout her stay in this hemisphere, were con slantly and urgently tolirited hy herself and he functionary; thnt every possible means was usei to induce him (Bennett) to write more, and often er, and lay it on thicker, in exaltation o; the dan cirtg courtesan. After reading all llmt has thus fa appeared on both sides, we are very decidedly o opinion that the presents of Mile. Elsslerto Bonnet were hut the well-earned and not at all exorbitun reward of services petitioned lor and faithfully reii dered, and that there was nothing improper m hii receiving them The propriety of his devoting hii journal to such a ptuqiose, is of course an entirel] different matter, which does not here come unde review. As between Bennett and Elssler, then can be no doubt that he richly earned all she pair him, and that, while it would have been very bns< in her to have left his services unrequited, it win not at all improper in him to accept her acknow ledgements. We do noi doubt that she went bacl to Europe $10,000 richer than if the Herald hat never named her. Why, then, should she not pa; for its aid! There is a false notion prevalent of the right and duties of the press, in this respect, which ough to be promptly corrected. A man presents himsel to an editor, having some invention, or project, o: wonder, or investment, which he desires to hav< brought vividly to the notice of the public, and tc this end, solicits the editor's services, general 01 siieeial, and a liberal or limited use of his columns. By success, he expects to secure wealth, or something else desirable. Now the editor owes a primary duty to his readers and the public, which binds him never to deceive nor mislead them in this or uny other respect?should he fail in this to their injury, he justly forfeits their confidence, and ought to lose their patronage. But allowing the thing commended is deserving of what be says o| it, and by means ot his exertions it is brought into notice and popularity, to the advantage ot the public and the pecuniary profit of the projector or proprietor, there is 110 sound reason conceivable why the editor should not be liberally paid for his exertions in the premises. True, he must be very careful that he is not deceived, and that he does not deceive others?there is imminent danger, that the taint of personal interest may affect his judgment and stimulate his zeal?and here is abundant reason why he should be chary of receiving presents or compensation for any services he may render in the way of his profession. It may be well for hint to refuse any such recompense, but we are speaking of the obligation of the beneficiary. We presume the virtue of an Editor will rarely be put to any very severe test. His triend the inventor will in sisi on ms aevoung nis time, nis enorts, nis columns, to that which is calculated to benefit the public so vastly, and one person in particular a little. incidentally ; and should he at last lling a tew dollars out of thousands to1 his typographic ally, he will vaunt it to the world as a case of extravagant generosity on his part or of extortion on that ot his ally. Mr. Wikofi", indeed, coolly declares that Bennett's articles in favor of Fanny were so extravagant, absurd and mawkish that they did her more harm than good, and in the next breath he I asserts that they doubtless increased the circulation [ of the Herald, and so were intrinsically a source ' of profit! We suspect they brought a dollar into the cofiers of the dancer for every copper they won to th' drawer of the publisher. Assuming, then, that his own letters have not been grossly interpolated by Bennett, (as we think tney could not have been, as the vraiumblance is very marked and never lost,) we must say that Mr. Wikofl' cuts a sorry figure in this business And now a word on another branch of this subject. This controversy has let the public a good way into the secret of making a theatrical lion and a theatrical fortune?perhaps of other lions and fori tunes, though we think there can be none other quite so much a matter of gas and machinery as those connected with the drama. Fanny Elssler came here in the Spring of 1841, a woman of thirtyfive, with considerable European reputation as a dancer and a courtesan. By a profuse application of theatrical pufi-power, through the Herald and kindred prints, she was at once enthroned the unrivalled queen of the ballet, the idol of fashion, the divinity ot the theatre?yes, " the divine Fanny" was the appellation blasphemously current in the circles and the journals most lavish of her praises. Nightly were the largest theatres ot our cities crowded successively | with the young, the pure, the high-born, I us well as the otherwise, to study every attitude, watch every motion, and applaud to the echo every exertion, of this dancing woman, whose shamelessness was notorious all over Europe anr in this country, and whose relations with her functionary Wikoll were scarcely equivocal. Agains this tempest of extravagant adulation we were impelled to protest as most pernicious to the public morals?as every way unjust, absurd, and perilous For what was the moral inevitably impressed on our admiring youth of both sexes, who saw this woman leted, and flattered, and showered with bouquets, and treated as some superior being, bj wives and mothers of spotless tame, who wouk have spurned from their doors any poor homeless, friendless victim of seduction as a polluted out cast and moral lejier 1 Must not all such he impel led to conclude that Virtue is a very respectabk and necessary humbug, and that Vice consists it sinning shabbily and without the talent or the nervt to put a bold fare on the matter 1 Such was tin aspect of the affair which im|>elled us to protest, it its outset, against the adulation heaped on Fannj Elssler?towards whom personally we bore no il will, having never 8 en, nor sought to see her, ant knowing no more of her than we read from day tc day in the journals devoted to her exaltation. Fo what we said we were grossly assailed ,in variou ways, threatened in anonymous letters, tec.,but ti no purpose. We think those who have read tin controversy of Wikoff and Bennett, will not nov be inclined to di&ent from ojir estimate. Rcmakki t>* jsii. Huiuld. Thus far discnurseth Mr. Gjee^eyof the Triburu and so far lie speaketh well "'Endeavors to re nail an injury unwittingly committed, and to take bad a statement which he published believing it to bf j true, but which, on examination and further evi dence, lie has discovered to be utterly false. There is nothing in the above nmtmle honorablt which particularly calls for any remarks from us | unless it he the allusion to an imputation whicl ! originated with Wikoff himself, namely,that we hat I interpolated passages in his letters. The7VtbMne as ! sttrnes f rom the general character of the letters tlia we have not interpolated them grossly. Now,in refer ! ence to this, we assure the Tribune that the whoh | of the correspondence which we have published appears in our columns as strictly according to tlx I original manuscript, as it was possible for printer! | and prod-readers to make it. There may be somt typographical errors, but with that exception the ' printed letters are as exact and literal copies of the I original as it is possible for them to he. Accoinpa I nying a very few of the letters, indeed, there wer< ! a few explanatory remarks introduced editoriallj and enclosed in brackets, which by no means al tered the sense of the text, or afforded the slightes possible ground for the charge of interpolation And thismode of giving letterswilh explanatorynote is very well understood by printers and readers o newspapers. The instance in which exceptioi was taken was that in which WikofFcoolly request ed me to write a card for publication in the narm of Mr Stout the sculptor, and to affix Stout' name to it, Wikotl saying lhat he would take thi responsibility of the action. I did not choose ti comply wiih such an impudent request, for, o course, I justly considered lhat had I done so, should have been guilty of forgery, and, tbeiefore I paid no sort of attention to the fellow's iufamou proposal. We assure the editor of the Tribun then and all other editors, that there is not a singh word interpolated, and that tip- whole of the? letters are published without diminution or curtail rnent whutever, except the omission of a few un meaning compliments. And all this we shall provi before a court of justice and give both Wikoff am his editor, one "John Ryan," an opportunity ti see the impudence and folly of their attempt t assail our reputation and our integrity in that re sped. So much on this point As to the "absurd puffs," as they arc charucter zed by \hcTribune, and the mode of creating ther trical lions and making theatrical fortunes, wc bi lirve such business is not confined altogether t theatres, or dancers, or affairs of that deseriptior Nor is the Herald,the exclusive paper for manufat turing reputations and attempting to create fortunes in that way. The Tribune itself, without imputing ( ' anything improper to its course, has been endeavor- I e ing to do that in a variety of ways. Without t r. calling to recollection a number of little \ <j things, we might instance the great fuss which t ( the Tribune has made about "artificial me- t .r inory," and a certain "Professor," and also about | e the "hatching of eggs by steam." If theatrical i ^ puffs of Fanny Elssler were so absurd, and so ridi- ( |t culous, and so uncalled for, certainly we do not see cj i- that they possess the monopoly of absurdity and c c ridicule in newspaper puffing; and we rather think e s that "egg-hatching" and "phreno-Bmeno-techiiy" n and Fourierisin, and even cooniam have their I1 !, spasms of absurdity and development of ridicule " ' equal to any other department of the fine arts or of j human philosophy. However, we do not wish to tl - offend our eoternporary by these allusions,but make v them merely by way ol a set-off to what he calls tl J the absurdity of puffing, in which, in a great meat sure, we quite agree with him. v t Then as to the general morale of the career of c Fanny Elssler in this country, and the excitement p s produced, and the conclusions drawn by our cotein- a f porary, we are not disposed to differ very much n r from him in opinion in that respect. It certainly p j was a singular spectacle, that career, from begin- o ; ning to end. But we were no more culpable in tl s that matter than some of the highest and most res- pectable, and most moral persons in society, in tl j fact, we were much leas culpable. We required u c y great deal of importunity, and teazing, and per- fi plexitis intercession to get us to suy as much as we a j did for Fanny Elssler. In fact, our good nature r f was invaded, and when the miserable creature tl r Wikoff, by his recent conduct, attempted to turn *' that very good nature so much to our disadvan- pi tage, we could not refrain from embracing the op- ? portunity of crushing the wretch to the earth, ti which we shall effectually do before we have done T with him, for we are by no means done yet. Thus much on these points. The Tribune has " made the amende honorable in a very manly and very frank manner, and we now give an opportunity to the other journals of this city, that have publish- 01 ed, either gratuitously or for pay, the same libels Jc aguinst us, under the signature of this same Wt- s' koff, to pursue the same honorable line of conduct. 8< We ullude particularly to the Courier and Enqui- Tt rer, the New York American, the Evening Pott, the c Sun, the Commercial Advertiser, and the Journal 11 of Commerce, in all of which, we believe, bis libel- l* lous communications appeared. We shall give fr then) a chance to do us justice voluntarily, as the Tribune has done; and if they do not, we again Cl assure them that we shall commence prosecution! n against them and compel them to do us justice before w an honest jury and a competent Court of J ustice. c| In the meantime, in reference to another misera- fc ble falsehood of Wikoff, in which the name of Mr. w Macready, the actor, was introduced, we expect, and shall call upon Mr. Macready to state publicly ol whether, in the slight intercourse we had with him in London, in all that ever took place between us, lr there ever was the slightest manifestation on our j, part that could give the least possible shadow of ai excuse for this miserable Wikoff to impute to us Sj an attempt to levy black mail on Mr. Macready, j, or that we wanted to be invited to a dinner ai ja his house?of which we never knew anything?01 al unless we were invited, we should attack him in the Herald? Mr. Macready?as a man?a gentle man?and an actor, can have no hesitation in ei coming out and responding to this call to do justic* A between man and man. To his evidence we ap- o: peal for the triumphant refutation and witherinc tf rebuke of that foul calumny with which his name r< was associated by the miserable creature Wikoff. Italian Opera?First Night of La Sonnam- J" bi'la.?There are operas which have created a great S sensation at their first production, which took the di dilettanti by storm, to which a vogue a la barbiere Cl find been prognosticated, but which have as com- 9 pletely disappeared from'the stage, as if they bad got a sound ducking in Lethe's stream. This was t not the case with the Sonnambula, one of Bellini's ir first operas?although performed after Norma? written in the much lamented composer's happiest 1 time?when the crepuscle of his first love had dis- P ^ appeared to make room lor the sun, which shone v down from the flioist eyes ofhis Amina with sweet 81 ' brilliancy?or with brilliant sweetness, as Polonius J would have said?upon the child-like Bellini, and j . whose rays reflected themselves in the poetical n ' strains of his bridal song, full of all that pastoral innocence which is one of the most captivating fea, tures of Tasso's potior fido. La Sonnambula was n i Kir f.?r n/if un utpII iv#?il in F.nrnnp nu wpvorul nf P.i J hia inferior operas?Straniera il Pirnta or 1 Monttrrhi, for instance; in lact, ite great success is ? \ only traced to the epoch when it iell in the hands, c or rather the throats, of Malibran and Tudolini, till . it reached the ajmgtt of its popularity through the tl , wondrous mastership of Persiani's genius, who ? , it is generally admitted surpasses even Malibran in 1 this role, at least in its musical part. This popu j larity is now immense ; translated in all languages, y the Sonnantbula is always and everywhere sung, I and although as a work of art considerably interim f< j to Norma and much more to II Puritani, it is not , by few preferred to either of them. Considering r the state of Italian music at Ihe lime of its appriu ti s ance, and attentively examining it as a whole, anil n , in its particular", we find in the character of the 0 ? work itself the reason of this auasi-anomaly, which a "t strictly taken, is no anomaly, iroin its very frequent recurrency in the annals *>f operatic music. The Sonnambula was the first opera, in which the sentiment was not only preponderating, hut where it , entirely excluded all the other effects which have v r been generally seized upon by composers The c style of all its airs, ducts and concerted pieces is ' purely elegiatic and pastoral; it simply appeals to the heart and to nothing more, where on the con. trary now-a-days,sorne notice must be taken of the v. understanding 01?the heels; but fortunately,or un- n fortunately, hh you like, there could not be found tl i any motifs for quadrilles by Musard, who did noi ) hesitate desecrating Rosini's Stab t Mattr, and " ' even Mozart's Requiem Its instrumentation anil j, orchesiral effects, are entirely null, being nothing ? ^ more throughout than a mere harp accompaniment; ,i - its extreme and continuous sentimentality, which u t is sometimes not a little monotonous, imparls 11 kind of ennui at the (irst hearing?the greatest mistake a modern composer can possibly make, since " the public will he amused, and nothing but amused * ) in the theatre. Here we have the principal reason tl , of the indifferent reception in the beginning; and < the facility with which the ear accustoms itself to the monotony ot Ihe melodies,?each ol n which, separately taken, is full of sweetness 11 . and pleasing melancholy?toe great field which J , is opened to the three leading characters for ^ the display of a brilliant vocalization, explains i's subsequent popularity?a popularity which will ; never wear off, because the test of music must he j not n'tf*r*(*nif> 11 iw?H Minnnrfpcl l?V tt w iso- r luted fine points as in Donizetti 8 opera. \ There has already ho much been said about the a t Sonnambula, whose lovely airs are found on every ( piano in evety possible arrangement, with the ex- * H ception of dancing music, that we tnink it super- , . fluous to point out beauties which are perfectly I known to every body. We likewise abstain from j i individualizing the merits and slight defects of ex- | ecution, as the first performance of an opera by a < newly congregated corps always presenis some | ' Haws. The audience has not yet full confidence in < s the singers, nor iliey in themselves, till the second r night, just as we put more faith in the prescriptions j of a medica} man, of whose ability we entertain the ( highest opinion, the day after lie has got his diploma , ' than the (lay before, liorghese rises in the estimation I of her numerous admirers after every new opera. She was literally overloaded with applause Hnd ' (ouronncs after her two great airs, principally the t H celebrated finale " A non fruitier nman pmiifrr," j f which she gave to |>erf'action; nor was she less ex- 1 i- cellent in the " Pvjn&i Pnnillo li rfjMM," where she J was very well seconded by Perozzi, as well us n 1 the stretta, " IVon t'qactio ingrntt core." Perozzi's ; " air, the rheval (it bataille of all tenors. " Ah perchc - non potto odinrti," was much applauded, as well . as ValteilitiaV " Fi nrnttn The chorus and 1 orchestra wan pretty good for a first performance. 1 ' The house was crammed and the applause ra|>- j o turous. The Prairie Hird is the title ol a novel by | Charles Augustus ??1 urray, well known as the an- , thor of " Travels in North America," lust repub- , , jished by the Harpers It is a novel designed to i illustrate the lite, customs and character of the I North American Indians, and is among the fruits 1 !- of a long and romantic residence among the wes- 1 ? tern tribes, hy thejauthor some years since. It is ' spoken ol in the highest terms by the Knglish press , and critical journals, and will be well received on | ;- this side the Atlantic. It is sold for tw-o shillings. Tim New Common Councu,.?To-day at 12 t'clock, the old Common Council .terminate their ast year of mismanagement, and give place to heir successor*? the American Republicans, who vere elected in consequence of theirsolemn pledge o give us a pure, clean, economical, republican ily government, from stem to stern, in every delartment of its multifarious affairs. To-day at 12 >'clock, the inauguration ol the new Common Council takes place. James Harper, the new May?r, will be sworn in with the rest of the members >f the Corporation, and from this day forward we xpect to see, on the part of the majority of this iew Common Council, uu honest and patriotic efort, and a successful one also, we trust, to reform 11 abuses?to reduce the taxes?to clean our streets -to give us a good police?and curry into effect all liose measures for the promotion of the public welfare, which we have in vain looked lor under \if mi&rule of their predecessors. Tin-re can be no mistake about the principles on rhich this new party have come into power. The ry about "naliveisin" and the " Irish" and "poery" was entirely addressed to "Buncombe," nd had no reference to practical measures. The ew party have reached the places they now occuy by the reiteration of solemn pledges to carry ut city reform. And tlrny may rest astsured that he people of this city will wa'.ch every movement -criticise every step?and insist to the utmost on heir fulfilment of their pledges. And we have all onfidence that the new corporation will be faithul to their promises. If they do, they may res, ssured of our support and aid. We have all along endered to this party the most efficient, because he most disinterested aid. No journal has made uch efforts us this to give ascendancy to the new uriy. And in this we were actuated and impelled >lely by the belief that this new party organizaon presented the means of obtuining city reform hey promised what we wanted and had demandJ lor years in vain?a good city government, lence we gave them our free, generous, and ef ctive assistance. Now il remains tn he ?pen urhpfhpr l'.VU8CO f this party will be kept. If they be, then in this lurnal the new party will still find an ally. We tall faithfully report their proceedings, and preirve them from the misrepresentation of the miseible party organs. Hut if they discover any dupliity or treachery, then will they find no more ac- ! ve and untiring denunciations from any quarter , tan from the columns of this journal, once their iend. The Park?Mr. Macready?Mr. Macready j ommenced his re-engagement at the Park last ight in the character of Hamlet. Although not 'hat is called a fashionable, yet it was a very rowded house. Mr. Macready's Hamlet is a per>rmance now so well known, that criticism may ell be spared. It is not the greatest of his perirmances, but still it bears throughout the imprest i f the exquisite taste, the educated judgment, and ' le extraordinary artistical skill ot this great \ agedian. Mrs. Sloman played the Queen, as she 1 oesevery part she undertakes, with greatpropriety j ad judgment. Mrs. Hunt's Ophelia was quite re- ' >ectable, and Mr. Lovel as Laertes, acquitted j iniself in a very creditable manner. After the .11 of the curtain, Mr Macready was called out, ud greeted with considerable applause.
