St. Clair, Sallie

Academy of Music.

There was a fine house on Saturday evening to witness the repetition of that exception the richest fun ever packed into the shape of a comedy, and the acting of Mr. Charles Barras in the principal character was unapproachable.

To night will be produced the drama of the White Terror, written by Mr. Barras. Great preparations have been made, and the drama will be one of the most attractive pieces ever on the stage. Brilliant dialogue, striking scenes, thrilling scenic and mechanical effects, and all the appliances of a first class sensation drama characterize the play. The piece has been in rehearsal for some days, and considerable expense has been lavished on it. Miss Sallie St. Clair enacts the heroine, “Adrienne Durand.”
