--Another throng filled the Theatre on Monday night, and thus far the manager may be congratulated upon an auspicious commencement of the season. We witnessed the performance of the pretty little play entitled ‘"Nature and Philosophy;"’ which was admirably done; but of the remainder of the entertainment we cannot speak from personal knowledge. A fine drama is announced for to-night, in which Mr. E. R. Dalton, whom many of our readers will recollect as a prominent member of a Richmond company some years ago, will appear, and a good performance may be expected. The orchestra of the Theatre discourses most excellent music, and it is already manifest that the audiences prefer our popular airs to the more scientific and elevated style, either of which they are fully capable of producing.
