--Richelieu will be performed at the Theatre to-night, as it has not been since the last visit of Mr. Couldock some years ago.--This really fine actor is especially happy in painting the wily cardinal. His ‘"make up"’, to use a stage phrase, is inimitable, and his acting is not surpassed by Forrest, or that rising star, Edwin Booth. In looking the character, a most essential point in its delineation, he has decidedly the advantage of either of the artists named. To those who admire that higher class of acting, which is so refining to the minds of the audience, the performance to-night strongly recommends itself. The farce of ‘"A Conjugal Lesson"’ is also on the bill.
