BOWERY THEATRE—EQUESTRIAN AND DRAMATIC ATTRACTIONS.
Not to be outdone by the “West End,” the Bowery continues to rival the Broadway in equestrian attractions, and the patrons of the Bowery theatre continue to rejoice in the wonderful feats of the magnificent stud of horses. The reproduction of “Rookwood,” including the marvellous exploits of the renowned Dick Turpin, and other startling effects of blood, mystery, love and revenge, drew an overcrowded house last night, especially as the sprightly favourite, Miss Sallie St. Clair, commenced a re-engagement. The pit was overflowing and exuberant with joy, and some of the boys so far forgot themselves in their excitement that they clambered over into the orchestra seats, for which manifestation of absence of mind they were kindly escorted to the street. Miss St. Clair was flatteringly received, and is no doubt destined to accompany “Rookwood” in a “long run.”
