Theatre. --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.
ings of the Manager were not allowed to develop themselves as fully as his generous wishes would have desired. The writer learns, however, that at some future day this patriotic gentleman, John H. Hewitt, Esq., (and who has not heard of Hewitt, the popular composer, play writer, and poet?) designs giving another benefit for the same purpose. Two hundred and fifty dollars were, nevertheless, raised on the occasions above referred to, the proprietress of the house giving $50, and Miss Ella Wren, Miss Jennie Powell, Miss M Johnson, Mr. E. R. Dalton, and Mr. R. Ogden generously throwing in their salaries. It must be gratifying to all who can feel for the suffering ones of Hampton that the Corps Dramatique. of Richmond, are not behind any in sympathy or in material aid to the peculiarly afflicted refugees from that once beautiful but now desolated town. The sum ($250) referred to awaits an order from any properly appointed receiver to be immediately appropriated. Notitia.
Richmond Varieties. --Despite very strong opposition, this place of amusements holds the even tenor of its way, being nightly comfortably filled with the play going public. The good order and decorum maintained has been the subject of favorable comment. The dramatic renditions are as good as could be expected in a place so unfitted for doing proper justice to the tragic muse as the Varieties is. We have heard several competent judges pronounce the "Michael Earle" in the "Maniac Lovers," of Mr. E. R. Dalton, on Saturday night, an admirable piece of acting.
The Varieties. --The crowds that nightly attend this popular place of amusement give convincing proof of public appreciation of the exertions of the management. Mr. Walter Keeble, a sterling actor, has successfully rendered a variety of heavy characters, such as Hamlet, Ingomar, Edgar Ravenswood, Richard, &c. He is well sustained by the members of the stock company. We commend the Varieties to the floating population as a well conducted theatre, and an excellent place to while away a pleasant hour. Mr. E. R. Dalton, a sterling actor and old favorite, takes a benefit to-night, a hint sufficient to summon all of his friends.
The Varieties. --A handsome tribute was paid to Mr. E. R. Dalton on Wednesday night. Notwithstanding the "weeping clouds," the Varieties was crowded. To-night an attractive bill is offered. Mr. Walter Keeble, a decided favorite with the play-goers, (and deservedly so,) will appear, supported by the excellent stock company. En passant, we refer the ladies and gentlemen of the dramatic profession to the advertisement of Manager Hewitt. He offers inducements for engagements at the new Richmond Theatre, now in progress of completion.

Theatrical --The Theatres in the Confederacy are doing a flourishing business. At Mobile, Mr. Crisp has been very successful as manager. At Montgomery, Ala., Miss Ida Vernon is now playing a highly successful star engagement, supported by E. R. Dalton and other auxiliaries. A few nights since the last-named actor, in a fencing scene, had the misfortune to cut Sum Hubbard on the hand; and the next night, while playing the Phantom, he shot a brother actor, named Bowers in the face with a pistol and the latter will probably lose one of his eyes by the accident.
Theatrical. --Miss Ella Wrenn and Mr. E. R. Dalton, are the chief attraction at the Savannah Theatre. Miss Ella appeared last Monday evening as Venetia, in the "Italian Bride." At the Mobile Theatre, Mr. W. H. Crisp and his daughter, Mrs. Jessie Clark, are impersonating the leading parts in Richard the Third, to crowded audiences. At Montgomery, Ala, Messrs. Morton and Hamilton, the Theatrical managers, are doing a prosperous business. The Warner sisters seem to be the chief attraction. Wallace Hale's "Southern Mistrels" are concertizing at Selma, Ala.
