Academy of Music—Benefit of Miss Sallie St. Clair.
An immense bill of entertainment is offered at the Academy of Music this evening. First upon the programme is Bourcicault’s famous military and dramatic spectacle of “Jessie Brown, or the Siege of Lucknow,” with Miss St. Clair as the heroic Scotch girl Jessie, a part in which she has achieved great fame. The drama itself has been for some time in course of preparation and will be produced with new scenery dresses, grand illuminated tableau and cast with the entire strength of the company. It reflects with great fidelity many of the stirring scenes of the present great rebellion. After the drama a dance by Miss Matilda Hughes, and a new commedietta called “The Young Rebel,” with Miss St. Clair as Kitty Vinks. Such a bill combined with the merits of the beneficiare, will doubtless fill the house to overflowing.
