y it is to say very good things in a very good way — is the most popular member of the establishment. In fact, a theatre without a comedian of genuine waggish propensities, is like a soulless corporation; it has the form, but not the substance of a place of amusement. Since the people of Richmond became familiar with the style of Burke and Jefferson, they have regarded that as a standard in the line of low comedy, and during the present season their taste in that respect has been gratified. Mr. Lamb approaches more nearly to Jefferson's parallel than any comedian within our knowledge, and hence his popularity as an actor. For the occasion of his benefit, Lamb 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 remunerated.
