[Continued.] at the beginning of the eightenth century the Charlestown School, as we have shown, was under the charge of Thomas Swan, M. A. This gentleman was a graduate of Harvard College in the class of 1689. He was born in Roxbury, September 15, 1669, and was the son of Dr. Thomas and Mary (Lamb) Swan, of that town. In 1690 he was teaching in Hadley. After resigning at Charlestown he became Register of Probate for Middlesex County.

For the occasion of his benefit, LaLamb has made a rich selection of pieces, and we hope his friends will rally in throngs to-night.
The "Wreck Ashore," Brougham's glorious extravaganza of "Pocahontas," and a laughable farce which he terms "Disunion and Compromise," constitute the programme, and we venture to assert that all who attend will be richly remunerate

Theatre. --The "Parlor and Cabin" will be repeated to-night, with some important changes, including the restoration of a scene which constitutes a prominent point in the drama. Messrs. Kunkel and Moxley will "do" Uncle Pete and Aunt Violet, in which they have already made a fine impression.--The witty extravaganza of Po-ca-hon-tas, in which Lamb plays the big Indian, will conclude the performance.
