As it contained tome high compli ment en British valor, it was, at least, ques tionable bow it would be received by a mitcella neout audience; but the tumult of applause, and QQuImoul encor. Aii raee..d(L topalled all doubts, and certainly reflected the highest honor on the liberality and magnanimity af u American public The tamo was th . . ., - , : . ... l PnlaieIPh'. tha same wdl be the case at Boston, ims it one instance to shew that when we proclaimed in the national charter, eiik.t. ,..i. u .. . . ' "ur m F UrxeruU," the sentiment was uttered with since - rity. ra of Lionel k Clarissa, by Bickerttaffi an ope. :r l , : .r . . .. - 10 closet and lha boards, it perhaps unrivalled oa the English stage. It is a well - written and pie. ,1 wb4C bT no bert part of it. The situation of Lionel aad Clarissa, are bizhly in - uresung, aad the matiment anddenoument of M Prclly moral. The music U prin cipally selected according to the fashion of the dny, from th Italiaa and many of tha aln contain both pleasing melody and good harmony, though not highly seasoned with that coup it theutrt sffoct which draw thuodr of applause to torn modern productions. That of tie present time hat, criLrally speaking, great advan - taget over that of 30 or 40 year ago. Th mo dern English ballad - composers, at the heed of whom standi Moore, have adapted their mekv diee so that th words and music falling together, totidem iUib it, totxdem notit, the former, (the word,,) in the noalh of a good articulate inger, meet the ear with nearly the tea) distinctness that tbey would ia timpU recitation. Thi was not the case with th ballad or law tnliui i mmg of the old meloduts, for the rrtlahUs being ti - toaded by two or avore notee gUmg m tba voice to each, R was nodered nearly iaapoeaible for the most correct musical naasarlalinsj to deliver the word with their true accent. " OA toft not U mt,n by LVaneL in the Si act, may terra at sample. TI pW aad umaniog of tha poetry, which i perfect to a pert of the sceat I dcharetor,y tort by Ui great exton - of the rowel sounds which thesmgrrU cons - IDedtoatooruWtogrretherequUiUtonfftii and (uaatity of sound demanded by tha mta - two and style ef the air.andthus in accent and emphasis are too frequently at variance with tha words. The two propel characters, from which the ptoe derives it nam, were played by mr. PbiUpps and MUe Johnson. In Lionel, Mr. Philippe displayed greater powen a the actor, than he has jet done many character he hat assumed oa our stage, and the audience shewed that such wa th impression he made on them. The highly impasslon - 5d leave - taking scene with Clarissa, where, after the moat vehement self - reproaches, he lean him - telf away from her forever, striking his forehead a ba rushes out in a state of phrenzied despair was one of the "finest exhibitions I ever witnessed in the scenic art. The song of 77u Bevilderti Xatd, wa given in hie sweetest tones, and Wat so effective, that though there wa evidently a woh to spare him a (opetitiun of the t dbrt, the encore, at length, irresistibly bunt frth from every part of the house, and complied with. Barn'.f, in Col. Oldbr - y, aflbrdrd an essential support lo the piece. In persuuating the cha racter, be fire the picture of a hale hearty gal lant old soldier, who forgetting fifty - five, would fain be still the dashing rake of 24, and in the gaily of his heart and scorn of effeminacy, is betrayed into a ludicrous situation of whimsical distress ; and we cannot help laughing both with him at bim. The character was well conceived and happily executed. This actor has superior talents in low comedy, but I take this opportunity to give bim a friendly caution Against suffering his turn for mimic and drollery to degenerate into low buffoonery : let bim beware bow he indulges hi disposition to give point by his manner to broad jests for the purpose of making them broad or. Did he not hear an audible ngn or ditapprc batiou on Saturday eren'.og ? Robtrtten I congratulate Mr. R. on his man. oer of playing Sir John Flowerdale. If he could form au idea what a relief it was to us to see him lay aside those monstrous stilts, on which be is so perpetually mounted, he would never seek to raise himself again by their awkward as sistance. It it time for him to drop his imiuv tione and rely upon his own powen. " He may take my word for it, he will never arrive at any decree of eminence in his profession till be leaves off fin theatrical slang) doubling Cooper. Tbe mischief is that these attempt leads him to.cari cature th object of his admiration. A pompous dcUaiatory monotony equally announces to ui " Th bod capt towers, the pw - cou pa.'ares, are dueorf'd," and that " queen iMrb gallops athwart men's notes as they lie ailet p." This is intolerable, sd0ts especially in a scene of bustle aud passion where every foilow - actor is obliged to twpend and thereby lose th warmth ef his feei ng, who Mr. Robertson tabes hit own time to declaim a passage in measJred tono. lo Pir John Flowerdal b happi'y forgot himself, aad played it in a aahiral and easy manner. This actor baa th great mnrit of being alw lys master of bit part, wfaoat uopending upon the perpetual asdstanea of the prompter. Mr. Simponv, gavo'us the extravagant charac ter of the empty headed fop, in the style, I pre sume, th author himself intended ; but of this I cannot preload to be a good judge, not having seen the original. From certain symptoms, however, that have begun to shew themselves ia Broadway and sometimes at the theatre, it it not easy to my bow long it will be before wa shall see it among tu in full maturity. , Mr. Pritthard hat certainly talents, both na tural and acquired, but he teems not qualified by either, ,to figure as a lover en the boards Hie Harm an was tamo, and even cold ; it had not a feature of the spirited young fellow we find in tbe closet It was hardly fair aot to afford little Dy the shadow of aa apology for running off with him. Where was " th gallant, gay Lo thario f Mitt Jofuuon, though evidently not yet reco vered from a severe illness, exerted herself to th utmost, and sustained tbe arduous part assigned her wkh a degree o.' spirit, hardly to have been expected from her. Her conception of the part wa accurst aad forcible, and the only wanted power to make herself heard, particularly ia the garden scene, to give it complete effect. Ehe received many tokens of approbation. Mri. Darley, in Diana, was very successful in carrying off the Uvely and interesting madcap - She acquitted herself throughout with great satisfaction. On circumstanc in 'hi, lady's the atrical deportment I have long admired. When she draws the plaudits of tha audieqpe, shedoej not lay asido the characterise ptnnnatcs to turn about and return her thanks by a low curtesy, which, too' intended as a mark of respect to the house, is certainly an offence to theatrical pro priety, by destroying Uie illusion of the scene I have known many persons refuse to applaud, from au aprahen!ion that an actor wmld diop the charac .er to return thanks. I, however, ex cept the cue of the opera singer, sinc.t he cannot be supposed to be uocoosckuiof the presence of an audience, and, therefore, is at liberty to make an acknowledgement, if he rhuiet. These rem vks I bare long wished to submit to the con sideration of our theatrical ladies and gentlemen. refer them for anllurity on this point to a pa per oa tbe res, in toe Bee, of Goldsmith. Mr. BaUttin This actrem is, I confess, what of a favorite, but why does the to pre posterously dress her fare entirely out of chaxve - tor, whenever she appears ia the old women ? Ph often detu oy s tbe wit of the author, by the ill - judged wish to seem young and handsome, when it it absolutely necessary to appear both old and ugly, or the author is rendered quite ri - di colon t.
