Omuta. Houstr..—A large and select
audience assembled at the Opera House
list evening to welcome Letts, the Queen
of the stage.- "Paul, the Pet of ' the Pet
ticoats," was the opening piece. The
piece played by any one else than Lotta
is, to say the least of it, dull and upin
teresting, but with the aid of her genius,
it is rendered not only interesting but
highly entertaining. , T s tie entertainment
concluded with "Nan, the Good for
Nothing," which is one of Lotta's spe
cialties, and thought by many to be her
best character. The cast in both pieces
was good, and the entertainment was
highly satisfactory to the audience.
Lotta was repeatedly called before the
curtain. She introduces several new
songs in both pieces, which adds ma
terially to their interest. The same
bill is announced for to-night.
Surrun's ATf nRIcAN THEATRE.—The
great attraction at the American Theatre
is the Victorelli brothers, who are ad
mitted to be the greatest gymnasts of the
age. There are, however, several other
attractions, whose brilliancy is scarcely
eclipsed by these wonderful performers,
and the result is full houses every night.
PfTTEMINIGH THEATRE.—The circus at
the old Theatre is drawing large houses
every night. The company is one of the
very best, and comprises some of the
most brilliant stars of the arena. The
Kin Klux Klan have arrived, and under
command of George Reynolds are night
ly introduced and the mysteries of the
ENotasa OPERA.—We are glad to
learn that the celebrated comic English
Opera Troupe, Miss Susan Galion prima

playing to crowded houses. speak of
them in the most complimentary manner.
MUSEUM. The attraction at the
Museum is the original "Punch and
Judy" exhibition every hour. This is a
veryamnsing sight for children, and pa
rents should not deprive them of the
pleasure of seeing it. There are a num
ber of other attractions, of which we

CITY PARK, &C.
Mr. McCarthy, Fifth ward, moved to
take up the proposed act relative to a
City Park, de., laid,over ori - second read
ing at the last meeting.
The - President- stated, such a motion
was in order. •
Mr. McCandless, Eleventh ward, con
tended that under the rules the act could
not be taken up until the next regular
meeting; in other words, it having been
laidover under the rules, a month should
intervene before it could be called up
again. 1 •
Mr. McCarthy thought the member
from the Eleventh ward was captious. ,
Mr. Batchelor, Twentieth ward;
thought discussion out of order, the
President having ruled the -point.
The proposed act, and r esolution.
urging our Representatives in the Legis
lature to procure its passage as approv
ed by Select Council, were taken up. i
Mr. Batchelor thought that to the first
part of the , bill, authorizing the issue of '1
new city bonds to retire old ones, there,
could be no objection. As for the other,
part, relative to a City Park. he was
willing the question should be submit
ted to the people, as proposed, to decide
whether or not there should be a Park.
Mr. Reed, Eleventh ward, moved that
a separate vote be taken, first on the is
suing of new bonds for old ones, and
next on the City Park. Carried. for
vote was first on the provision for
issuing bonds, which prevailed by a
unanimous vote. •
