LOGG'S ENTERTAINMENT—It is as though
this roar of the tempest ha I suddenly stilled
and the tierce battling of the elements had
"soothed its wrinkled front;" the sunshine
breaking from the gloom and the birds twit
tering in the trees again—to mark the con
trast between the overture of Miss K ELLOGG'S
entertainment audits succeeding parts.
To blend Shakespearen " selections" with
the light chaff of the "Biglow Papers," the
dialect humor and somewhat diluted pathos
of BRET HAUTE and Mrs. STOWE seasoned
with a simple idyl in Mrs. BROWNING'S
lightest vein—is, to say the least, a bold in
novation upon Miss KELI.OG'S earlier enter
tainments. Had the prelude been lighter
and the climax ascended to a more seasona
ble pitch, preparing the mind and soothing
the neryes for the more ambitious efforts of
the reader and the profouuder genius of the
author she essayed to interpret, we should
have been struck mith a finer fitness of things.

tionist must exercise who courts public favor
among the multitude who, in modern days,
are seeking profit or applause in this voca
tion. The critic of such performances can
not have bestowed the thought and study
necessary to an apt comprehension of the
complex parts which go to make up such a
miscellany as these entertainments offer. —
Failing this, he may lose and he does lose, no
doubt many of the finer touches of an art
that can give at best, a fleeting and momentary
picture, a hint of feeling and a glimpse of
thought—the shadowy portrayals that make
up in part at least a programme like the pres
ent. We are not suffered to dwell long
enough upon a picture, led from this impres
sion on to that, and carrying to each succeed

natural adaptation, emotional and mental, to
the elocutionary and dramatic art, won a de

conclusion which every succeeding experi
ence of her quality will bring, the best proof
of the growing maturity of her power. What
limit there may be to the possibilities of this
reader, a still further experience must lead
