he chief merit of the production lies; for we confess to but little interest in the "story of the play," and found the prolix dialogue of the minor parts somewhat tedious. So great, however, was the influence of Miss Bateman's portraiture of the trials and sufferings of Geraldine, that we experienced a sensation of regret that the play was over, when the curtain fell at the close of the fifth act. Mr. Bateman played acceptably as David of Ruthin. Mrs. De Bar, as the Nurse Joan, was excellent, as she is in every part she undertakes; and Lamb played the character of the Earl's Jester so well, that we doubt very much if it could have been improved upon. Miss Bateman played "Parthenia" and "Gertrude" for her benefit last night, and, we doubt not, continued to win the applause of the public. To-night "Romeo and Juliet" will be repeated. Of Miss Bateman's performance of Juliet we have already given our favorable opinion, and we advise all admirers of good acting to go and see it.
