Benefit of Mrs. I. B. Phillips.

--We beg to remind our play-going friends that the above named estimable and deserving lady, and most capable actress, takes a benefit at the Richmond Theatre to-morrow night. No doubt the simple announcement that such is the fact, will suffice to crowd the house with her friends; but to render ‘"assurance doubly sure,"’ we will say, that on that occasion she will personate Rachel in the romantic drama of the Jewess — a character invested with many attributes to win regard, and which, under the capable direction of Mrs. Phillips, is hard to beat, so carefully are the various ‘"lights and shadows"’ elaborated and brought out by her genius and skill. In addition to the above, Miss Jenny Parker, of the Holliday Street Theatre, Baltimore, formerly a great favorite here, will appear as Jenny Lind, singing eight songs in the farce of that name. The extravaganza of Norma, with that exuberant son of Momus, Lamb, as the Priestess Norma, will conclude the evening's entertainment. Of course everybody who has a spark of dramatic fire in his or her composition, will strain a point to be present.
