American actors in England. The New York Express observes that the success of American actors in England is remarkable. Almost every performer of note who goes from England to the United States makes a mark. Miss Cushman is ranked by the English quite as high as by her own countrymen. The Barney Williamses were even more fortunate abroad than at home, and English and Irish players, who were not famous until they come out hither, go back to London with their American laurels to win new ones. Some of the best English performers, Fanny Kemble, Wallack, Lester, Burton, old Booth, &c., were attracted and retained here, and cast in their lot where they were best appreciated.
