ACADEMY OF Mt's - ie.—Deborah, , or
Leah, as it has been anglicised, is a char
acter hardly suited to the powers of
Miss Jananschek. She does it well, but
she shows off her wonderful genius bet
ter in some Of her other characters, such -
as Elizabeth or Medea. Yet last night
she achieved a magnificent and deserved
success. From beginning to end she was
successful. Her reading was superb, her
poses graceful, sometimes grand, and her
drapery artistic; perhaps there was a
little too much attention to this, as we
sometimes fancied that the• clOthing of •
the wretched Jewess would impede,her
progress. As compared with Miss Bate-
man's rendition of the character, we • •
think that of the German actress is per
haps inferior; the former was all feehng,
and but few eyes were dry in the house
the night we saw her, whilst last night,
although the audieno was almost entire
ly an appreciative one, we saw no one
weeping, yet all were evidently im
pressed with the pow er and finish of the •
acting; and Miss Bateman herself could
have uttered nothing more pathetic than
the wild dispairing cry of "Joseph ! Jo
seph !" as ,the heart-broken Deborah
clamored at,the gate of her lover's honie.
It is but just, too, to remember that - •
while Miss Bateman acts nothing else so
well as she does Leah, Miss. Janauschek
acts some other parts much better.' Four
times she was' called before the curtain
by the audience.
The other characters in the play were
well cast. The stock company is a good
one. Miss Siegmann played the part of
the widowed Jewess with marked ability,
showing a most decided talent. Miss
Ruehle as Hannah was - very sweet and
engaging, aid' Herr Lederer played the
Schoolmaster exceedingly well. The
other parts were as well, perhaps better
filled than we had expected.
To-night,, by universal, request, Miss
Janauschek, instead of Catharine the
Second, will play "Marianne, a Woman
of the People. ' i, •
OPERA HOUSE.—Mr.,Prootor, who Our
ing the past week, has beenthe attrao
tion at the Opera liroluseisfaithe recipient
of a benefit last 'evening. The audience
was large and appreciative,
,and the en
tertainment was worthy the occasion.
"Pizarro" was presented, with :Mr. Proo
tor in the rote of Rolla, and Miss Dargon
as Elvira, after which Mr. Proetor ap
peared in , •Ocitahlanchet," which is one
of his best pieces. The , cast „In both
pieces was excellent, and especially so in
the first piece. We have seldom if ever
seen the character assumed by Mrs.
Dargon more ablY sustained than was
done last night. Her reading in the ap
peal to Pizarro in behalf of Alonzo was
superb, and only excelled by her ren
dition of the character in the succeeding
interview. Mr. Proctor will close his
engagement this evening, and Monday
night Mr. Joseph Jefferson will appear
in "Rip Van Winkle."
