Theatricals. [heading]
On Tuesday last, for the benefit of Mr. Gard, "The Mountaineers," and "No Song no Supper," were Performed at the Theatre. - The House was very tolerably attended, and on the whole the performances were quite to the satisfaction of the audience.
Last evening "A cure for the Heart ache," and "Catherine and Petruchio," were performed for the benefit of Mr. Burke. The liberal patronage experienced by this young actor must have been very grateful to his feelings. The House was the most brilliant and crowded we have ever witnessed. Mr. Burke, Mrs. Shaw, and Mr. Gard in the Play acquitted themselves with great credit - in the Farce Mr. Burkes's Petruchio was an admirable rough sketch, in which the outline was drawn with the nature, force, and freedom of a master. - When Mr. Burke has studied more he will be able to colour and finish this sketch. Mrs. Shaw's Catherine was excellent - she is by far the best reader, and altogether the most accomplished Performer in the Company.
