Theatre.

--The marked improvement that has taken place in affairs at this place of amusement deserves favorable notice. The manager has exerted himself to make it agreeable to visitors, and as the best method of promoting the peace and good order of the establishment has closed up the bar-rooms and put a stop to the sale of liquor. The performances on Wednesday night went off smoothly and without interruption, and we have reason to believe that there will be no cause for complaint hereafter. We have freely condemned what we thought deserved censure, but have no disposition to withhold praise where praise is due. It may not be in the power of the manager, under existing circumstances, to procure as good a stock company as the most exacting might desire, but if all do as well as they can, surely it is the part of a noble nature to make proper allowances. We invite attention to the entertainment provided for to-night, the occasion of Miss Ida Vernon's benefit. This young lady has succeeded remarkably well in her efforts during the past two weeks, and we doubt not that the audience will be well pleased with the performance.
