her into the port of Charleston, S. C., on the 22d of July, was re-captured with five men of the privateer's crew on board, west of Cape Hatteras. The Enchantress cleared from Boston on the 29th of June, for ports in Cuba. All the crew except Garrick (negro cook) were removed to the Jeff. Davis, and a crew from the privateer, consisting of W. W. Smith, of Savannah, Ga.; Ebin Lane, of West Cambridge, Mass.; Thomas Quigley, of New York; Daniel Mullings, of Charleston, S. C.; and E. Rochford, of Liverpool — put on board to take her to Charleston, the negro Garrick being retained as cook. After the schooner had left the Jeff. Davis, Garrick meditated getting possession of the Enchantress, but delayed the execution of his plan, so as to sound the views of a portion of the crew. Before coming to any definite conclusion the steamer Albatross hove in sight, and as soon as the crew on board the Enchantress discovered the character of the steamer they fought shy.

ed, and Macready continued, Charles Kean triumphantly finished,--the grand and noble work of doing entire justice, in their representation, to Shakspeare's plays. Strangely enough, accuracy on the stage is a modern virtue. hamlet, as played by Garrick, wore the wig and the kneebreeches of Garrick's time.

Charles Kemble was the first to make a stand for literal correctness of costume. Macready, who took Covent Garden Theatre for his field of enterprise, in 1837, went further, and made a stand for greater correctness of scenery. But it remained for Charles Kean to do more than had ever before been attempted, by every possible auxiliary of art, skill, learning, labor, and money, to place the plays of Shakspeare on the stage in a thoroughly correct and splendid manner. That work he accomplished; and he is said to have remarked, very late in his life, doubtless in a moment of despondency, that he had wasted the best working years of his career, in endeavoring to sustain the dignity

e intellectual feast, he is of little value,—vastly inferior to Sydney Smith, whose humor makes your sides shake with laughter for weeks after you have listened to it. We left Follett at about half-past 11 o'clock; and Talfourd carried me to the Garrick, where we found Poole. Talfourd took his two glasses of negus, his grilled bone, and Welsh rare-bit; and both he and Poole entertained me by their reminiscences of Godwin. While I listened late at night to these reminiscences, I did not expe Melbourne come on bended knees before me. He is a very able man. Another morning I went with my friend, Sir Gregory Lewin, to see the Tunnel. By the way, Sir Gregory has in his dining-room the original paintings by Reynolds of Dr. Johnson and Garrick, which have been perpetuated by so many thousand engravings. How strange it seems to me to sit at table and look upon such productions, so time-hallowed, and so full of the richest associations! You must see that I write blindly on; a mere wor

No Rhadamanthine brow of doom Bowed the dazed pedant from his room; And bards, whose name is legion, if denied, Bore off alike intact their verses and their pride. Pleasant it was to roam about The lettered world as he had done, And see the lords of song without Their singing robes and garlands on. With Wordsworth paddle Rydal mere, Taste rugged Elliott's home-brewed beer, And with the ears of Rogers, at fourscore, Hear Garrick's buskined tread and Walpole's wit once more. And one there was, a dreamer born, Who, with a mission to fulfil, Had left the Muses' haunts to turn The crank of an opinion-mill, Making his rustic reed of song A weapon in the war with wrong, Yoking his fancy to the breaking-plough That beam-deep turned the soil for truth to spring and grow. Too quiet seemed the man to ride The winged Hippogriff Reform; Was his a voice from side to side To pierce the tumult of the storm? A silent, shy, peace
y yearly income higher than that of our Secretaries of State. Mr. Brougham received last season, at Wallack's, $175 a week, besides benefits and allowances for his pieces; Mr. Lester Wallack receives $125 a week; Mr. Blake $115, and Mr. Walcot $100. At the Winter Garden and Niblo's, Messrs. Couldock and Dyott receive $70 and $50, and Messrs. Conway and Fisher $70 and $80 respectively a week. At Miss Keene's this season there are no high salaries, ut at the opening of the last she paid Mr. Jordan $100. Last season, too, Mrs. John Wood and Mr. Jefferson received each $150 a week under the management of Mr. Stuart.--Neither Garrick, nor Betterton, nor Munden, nor Dowton received one-half this sum in their best days. No wonder, with such increasing salary of artists, and diminution in the price of admission, that managers now-a-days never realize the same sums as of old.--The days of managers have gone by, and that of actors, scene painters and carpenters have succeeded.--N.

o Thomas, was son of the above: born in 1721, at Quilca, in Ireland, educated at Westminster School and Trinity College, Dublin, and led by wayward taste into the theatrical profession, in which he succeeded, being, indeed, a formidable rival to Garrick at one time. Then he became theatrical manager, with ill success. Next, he flourished as a lecturer on elocution. After that, he became manager of Drury Lane Theatre, under his son's lessee ship. Finally, he returned to his lectures on elocu — novelist and dramatist. She wrote "Sidney Biddulph," a novel, which could boast among its warm panegyrists Lord North and Mr. Fox, and "Nourjahad," an Eastern tale, with two plays, "The Dupe" and "The Discovery." The latter was pronounced by Garrick to be "one of the best comedies he ever read." Mrs. Sheridan also wrote a play called "The Trip to Bath," never acted nor published, which, Thomas More says, has been supposed by some to have passed, with her other papers, into the possession of
Singular Frolick of Garrick. One afternoon when Garrick expected Dr.Monsey to call on him, heGarrick expected Dr.Monsey to call on him, he desired the servant to conduct the doctor into his bed-room.--Garrick was announced for King Lear Garrick was announced for King Lear on that night, and when Monsey saw him in bed he expressed his surprise, and asked him if the play was to be changed. Garrick was dressed, but had his nightcap on, and the quilt was drawn over at the theatre, to dress for King Lear. Garrick, in a languid and whining tone, told the doctMonsey attended the performance. Having left Garrick in bed, he was bewildered by the scene beforeetimes being astonished at the resemblance of Garrick and Marr. At length, finding that the audience were convinced of Garrick's identity, Monsey began to suspect that a trick had been practiced, ao Garrick's house at the end of the play; but Garrick had been too quick for him, and was found by parent state of illness.

itated; his eyes glisten; his hands stretch nervously; his lips quiver; he bursts into tears; his whole frame is convulsed; he yields to a wild and uncontrollable passion of grief! Who is that young man! He must be something more than ordinary. No man ever yet possessed such susceptibility of powerful emotions, without being capable of rousing them in others. "If you want me to weep," says the Roman poet, "you must weep yourself." What is that man? If he is an actor, he will be equal to Garrick. If he is a poet, Shakespeare may tremble for his laurels. If he is a lawyer, he will be, one day, the most wonderful of his class. For who was ever a great actor, or a great poet, or a great orator, without that sympathy for the feelings of his fellowman that made our Saviour, in his earthly shape, the adored of the Universe. There is the secret spring that moves the bosoms of all mankind, and without it, a man, though he may still be a great speaker, a good actor, and a sublime poet, c
