--Mr. Joseph Jefferson, the comedian, is now fulfilling a most successful engagement at the Richmond Theatre. His old friends go to see him in throngs, and we may add that he has already made many new ones. Mr. Jefferson's style of acting is so well known in this community that we need not indulge in any comment upon it. Though excellent when he played here a few years ago, his later experience has expanded his remarkable powers, and it may be said without exaggeration that there is now no room for improvement. It is impossible to witness Jefferson's performances without feeling the inspiration of the hour, and many gloomy souls have been lighted up with mirth through his comical influence. The plays tonight are, the original drama of "Rip Van Winkle ," and the farce of "Lend Me a Dollar."
