Novel performance. --The "Infant Drum Corps," to which brief allusion was made yesterday, is chiefly composed of the children of Mr. Edward King, of this city, and no performance could be more wonderful, considering their youth, than that given under the direction of their instructor, Mr. Thomas Pulling, on Monday evening last, at the Theatre. They kept perfect time to the strains of Major Heffernan's life in the Marseillaise, Dixie, and other popular airs. The first drummer is Master Edw. King, three and a half years of age; second, Master Charlie King, 5 years; third, Miss Maud King, six and a half years; fourth, Miss Christiana King, eight and a half years; bass drummer, Master Pulling, 6 years. The corps was dressed in beautiful Zouave costume, and presented a novel as well as attractive appearance.
