agements. The period of his courtship and marriage intervened, and a number of years elapsed between the completion of the play and his first reading of it. At last there came a time in which the production of the play seemed possible. Charlotte Cushman and Edwin Booth were both in Boston performing, as I remember, but not at the same theatre. They agreed to act in my play. E. L. Davenport, manager of the Howard Athenaeum, undertook to produce it, and my dream was very near becoming a rehe greatest let down that I ever experienced. It affected me seriously for some days, after which I determined to attempt nothing more for the stage. In truth, there appeared to be little reason for this action on the part of the manager. Miss Cushman, speaking of it, said to me, My dear, if Edwin Booth and I had done nothing more than to stand upon the stage and say good evening to each other, the house would have been filled. Mr. Booth, in the course of these years, experienced great

A Woman of Genius. --Many years ago, Miss Charlotte Cushman was doing, at the Park Theatre, what in stage parlance is called general utility — the work of three ordinary performers; filling the gap when any one was sick; playing Mr. Richings' parts if he was away; playing Mr. Chippendale's parts if he could not, or would not do so; playing Mrs. Chippendale's parts on occasion,--never refusing to do what was allotted to her. As may be supposed, one who held this position had as yet no positi "Guy Mannering," a musical piece, was announced; it was produced for Mr. Braham, the great tenor who played Harry Bertram.--Mrs. Chippendale was cast for Meg Merrilles, but, during the day, was taken ill; so this obscure utility actress, this Miss Cushman, was sent for, and told to be ready in the part by night. She might read it on the boards if she could not commit it. But the "utility woman" was not used to reading her parts; she learned it before nightfall, and played it after nightfall.
ntinue to suck her capital, the candle will be burning at both ends, and the issue of an ignomanious choice of an Abolition, in preference to a Southern Confederacy, will be impoverishment and decay. Nor must we neglect to take into account the stampede of slave property from Virginia into the Southern Confederacy, which will continue until it is stopped by the Southern Congress. The drain created by the expulsion of this property will be serious indeed. Two coercion bills are now before the House, with a fair prospect of becoming laws at an early day. One is a sort of second edition of the Boston post bill; the other authorizes the President to call out the whole militia of the States remaining in the Union, to assist in enforcing the laws, recapturing the forts, &c. Under its provisions, the people of Virginia will be compelled to take up arms against the South, or else to assume the attitude of rebels. Charlotte Cushman will perform all this week at the theatre. Zed,
ruses might have been bettered. There was not strength enough, and the solos were poorly rendered. This evening Guy Mannering will be played, with Mrs. W. as Meg Merriles. We have said that we preferred the Meg of Mrs. Wallack to that of Charlotte Cushman. An Eastern contemporary thinks that if it had been said of Mrs. Waller's rendition we would have hit the mark.--And it may be true of hers. Mrs. Waller's has the physical power and intensity to impart to it all the thrilling effects so shave said that we preferred the Meg of Mrs. Wallack to that of Charlotte Cushman. An Eastern contemporary thinks that if it had been said of Mrs. Waller's rendition we would have hit the mark.--And it may be true of hers. Mrs. Waller's has the physical power and intensity to impart to it all the thrilling effects so sharply produced by Charlotte Cushman, while she is more than her peer in the pure art of her profession. "The engagement of the Wailers will extend through another week."

Theatre. --We are confident that all the patrons of the Theatre will be gratified to learn that the engagement of Mr. and Mrs. Waller is to be prolonged, and that during a portion of this week they will produce some of those excellent pieces in which they are really inimitable. We need scarcely adopt the usual phrases of compliment in speaking of these attractive performers, for it is admitted universally that Mrs. Waller is, (with perhaps the exception of Charlotte Cushman,) the greatest tragic actress now on the stage, and Mr. Waller has achieved a high reputation in the parts in which he appears. It is due to the management to say that they have, in the various plays lately produced, arranged the "cast" in a satisfactory manner, and the leading stars can have no reason to complain of a want of adequate support. We may therefore anticipate a week of genuine amusement at the Theatre, and we advise our readers to go and see some of the finest acting ever witnessed in Richmond
