ELLSLER’S ATHENEUM—MISS ST. CLAIR’S BENEFIT—A SPLENDID BILL.—The drama of “Aurora Floyd” was performed last night before a full house. Miss St. Clair depicted Aurora’s alternations of fervid and wild passion in her usual successful manner.—The other characters were so well played that the incidents and plot of the story were developed in an interesting and effective style.
We were pleased to see Mrs. Dickson last night in front of the stage. We hope we may have the pleasure next week of seeing her upon the stage.
The public will be gratified at the announcement that Miss Sallie St. Clair takes a benefit at the Atheneum to-night, at which will be played the pleasing drama of the “Jew’s Daughter”—Miss St. Clair as Leah, the Jewess; and that most popular and ineffably mirth-provoking satirical comedy of the “Hypochondriac”—Mr. Charles Barras representing Mr. Vertigo Morbid in his truly inimitable style, while Martha Simkins will find a sprightly and pleasing impersonation in Miss St. Clair. The evening’s performances will be concluded with the farce of the “Thumping Legacy.” The attractions for to-night will certainly draw an overflowing house to the benefit of one of the most accomplished actresses of the age.
