Theatricals. [heading]
Last Evening Cumberland's Comedy of the "The Wheel of Fortune" was presented at the Theatre - the piece is rather a good Dramatic narrative than a Comedy, it resembles all the other productions of the author, and certainly claims the meed [sic] of good writing, but it is deficient in the two great constituents of Comedy - Wit and Satire. The piece, however, has some faults that would have disgraced a much meaner Dramatist than Cumberland, in one part a character asks with much emphasis, "Why do you pause?" - to which another replies with great gravity, "Because I can't proceed;" - surely this is mere inanity? In another place, if we mistake not, in a sort of metaphor addressed to one of the females, the author talks of "Ornamenting perfection." - We could not have supposed such an error could possibly have escaped from the classic pen of Cumberland!
Considering the heaviness of the Play, the performance was as well as could be expected, and Mr. Gard, who as Penruddock bore away the palm of the evening, far, very far exceeded any thing he had previously attempted; barring a little bad speaking and being rather imperfect in the perclose [sic] of the Play, Mr. Gard's Penruddock, was a respectable piece of acting and in some parts of the character he was excellent. This is Mr. Gard's proper line of business, let him adhere to it, and he will often gratify and never offend. - Mr. Gard, however, seems to have a violent hankering after light Comedy! - light Comedy! for Taste's sake Sir estimate your talents more correctly - you are no more calculated to shoot Snipes! - If however Mr. Gard was a little imperfect, he had a most ample apology, for since the last performance he had it appears painted a scene, which was exhibited in the play, its effect was excellent although it was a day-light scene lighted with candelabras; and its execution reflects much more credit on this tyro in the graphic art than we can easily express. Mr. Burke was respectable in Sydenham, and it is but justice to the Misses Shaw to say that they improve in the profession very rapidly.
The audience appeared much pleased with the Farce - Mr. Burke and Mrs. Shaw were excellent in their parts and deserved all the applause they obtained.

Vessel Entered and Cleared since our last.
Oct. 3 Brig Venus, Capt Donerall, from Portsmouth - Lumber, & Fish.
Brig Elizabeth, Pendleton, New York - fish, flour, rice, &c.
