St. Clair, Sallie

THE THEATRE.—We have already taken occasion to express our opinion of the merits of Mr. Macfarland’s Company now playing at Fowler’s Hall; nor has that opinion been changed by a fuller acquaintance with the merits of the performers. To say that it is by far the best company that has ever appeared in Clarksville, is but to repeat what is said by all who have witnessed the performances, and we regret that the splendid acting, night after night, has not been witnessed by a greater number of our citizens. The “Star” of the Company—Miss St. Clair—is in our opinion, equal to any actress in the whole country, and the favorable impression made by her first appearance has been strengthened by a more intimate acquaintance with her talent in appreciating the characters she personates, and her great skill in delineating them. She is well sustained too, in her leading parts, and therefore never fails to display her peculiar powers. We hope she will be greeted by a full house to-night, and as long as she may remain with us.
