and the presence of a new and efficient police, are the measures taken to secure this desirable result, which must surely meet the approval of every one who would wish to see the drama in the South placed upon a respectable footing.
A very large audience was present on Monday night to witness the first representation of Mr. Hewitt's new piece, "The Log Fort," which brings into view a variety of scenes and incidents of the Revolution of 1861.
While there is no very remarkable ingenuity of combination on depth of plot, it patriotic sentiment, and illustrates the capacity of Southern soldiers to outwit, as well as outfight the Yankees.
The leading characters were well sustained by Mrs. Dalton, and Messrs, Morton and Ogden, though the latter was laboring under the fashionable disadvantage of a severe cold.
The piece, however, like all plays of this character, is more indebted to its sentiment than to any special effort of the actors' for its success.
We presume it will be repeated.
