Theatre. --The first week of Mr. Jefferson's engagement proved highly successful, and his benefit on Friday night was a rouser. On Saturday night Jefferson played his old character of Paul Pry, and we have to thank him for the hearty laugh we enjoyed. He always introduces some new and irresistibly comic feature to excite the mirth of the audience. The French play of the Courier of Lyons was in the main well performed. One or two of the actors, however, were imperfect in their parts, and made some awkward mistakes, the effect of which was to seriously impair the harmony of a good piece. To-night Jefferson will appear as Newman Noggs, in the excellent play founded on Dickens' Nicholas Nickleby — an attraction sufficient to fill the house to its utmost capacity.

The Theatre. --At the North Mr. Jefferson's "Newman Noggs," in Nicholas Nickleby, has been set down as one of the finest and most delicately drawn dramatic creations ever seen there. When he first played it the newspaper critics went into obstacles over the performance. To-night the character will be performed again before our public. The farce of the "Spitfire," than which there isn't a more laughable one on the stage, follows the drama.
