…The Ravel family bid farewell to the New York stage on Saturday night of this week. Jerome and Antoine are going home to France. Francois and the rest of the family, including the Russian dancer, Mad’lle Yrea Mathias, will keep together for some time to come. They go to New Orleans to fulfill a short engagement, and then proceed to California, and Lima, South America. The Ravels have played at Niblo’s Garden, at intervals, for more than twenty-two years, and have accumulated half a million of dollars, a large portion of which has been invested in real estate in this country.
