Palace Miss Maointyre and Mdlle. Janotha' constituted between them the chief attraction of the afternoon, but the artistic treat of the concert was a fine rendering of Berlioz's fantastic symphony " Episode in the Life of an Artist." The long-promised representation of "Les Hugueuots" in Frenohjfetook place at Covent Garden on Monday night, in the presence of a fairly numerous audience. The event thus, appropriately enough, occurred at the same time as the centenary performance of Meyerbeer's masterpiece at the Paris Grand Opera. M. Cossira as Baoul, Mile. Martini as Valentine, and M.' Oastelmary as Maroel carried off the chief honours, the two first- named artists shining to far greater advantage than in any other parts they have played this season. The grand duets were capitally sung. Mr. Irving delivered an address on "The Art of Acting " to the Edinburgh Philosophical Institution on Monday. Of all the arts, none, he said, required greater attention than the actor's craft. He dismissed as unworthy of consideration those who asserted that acting was not an art at all. Poetry, painting, sculpture, music, architecture— all had a bearing on their time, and beyond it; and the actor, though his knowledge might be, and must be, limited by the knowledge of his age, so long as he sounded the notes of human passion had something which was common to all the ages. If he could bring or restore in ever so slight degree the sunshine of hope, of pleasure, of gaiety, surely he n ould not have worked in vain. Mr. James Monro, O.B., who succeeded Sir Charles Warren as Commissioner of Metropolitan Police, and resigned because in his opinion the Home Office was not sufficiently liberal on the subject of superannuation, has left England in the Chusan for Calcutta. He is accompanied by his daughter, and, according to the Becord, goes out to start, independently, and at his own charges, a mission in Bengal. ^ Mr. Monro proposes to work as a simple evangelist in the same part of India in which he formerly held high office. Some of Mr. Monro's old colleagues in the police force, at a farewell meeting, presented the ex-Commissioner and Miss Monro with Bibles. A large number of friends took farewell at Liverpool Street Station, and wished him every success in his new work. THE P. & 0. COMPANY'S STEAMERS. OHUBAN. London, Nov. 12; Naples, Nov, 21.
