new Theatre-Royal, Barbados, we find, opened on the 1st instant, with the
appropriate Comedy of "The West Indian," and the favourite Entertainment
of "The Spoiled Child." The house itself, we understand, confers as
much honour on the spirit of the projectors, and the genius of the architect
and artists employed; as the company does on the judgement of Mr. Dykes, the
Manager - who has selected its members from most of the Theatres Royal, in
England, Scotland, and Irelnd. Upwards of 1500 persons were assembled; and,
immediately after the popular and truly British anthem of "God save the
King" had been performed by the Orchestra, Mr. Dykes delivered the
Long time a wand'rer on the World's wide stage,
like a ship distress'd mid Ocean's rage,
storms I struggled - brav'd misfortune's blast,
saw hope's mainsail quit life's shiv'ring mast:
while I scudded 'fore the driving wind,
star propitious cheer'd my drooping mind:
the rude surges roll'd - fierce Boreas roar'd,
fell Despair assum'd command on board;
seiz'd the helm, in Manhood's stern despite,
your lov'd shores first hail'd my anxious fight;
like a second Heaven on my view,
bade the wand'rer cry, "pale Care, adieu!"
in your friendy port the vessel rides,
longer dreads foul winds, or vexing tides;
moor'd at last, my cable ne'er shall part,
my best bower is - A GRATEFUL HEART!!!
Cheer'd by your bounty, all my sorrows fly,
joy, once more, illumes the wand'rer's eye;
gen'rous minds conceiv'd the pleasing talk,
gave encouragement I dar'd not ask,
I - buoy'd up by life's most flatt'ring hope,
dreams, which Fancy, in her gayest scope,
on the youthful mind, in sportive glee-
I e'er hope this honour'd hour to see?-
looks like magic, as I gaze around-
I seem to tread on fairy ground;
almost doubt the glorious scene I view,
that my throbbing heart proclaims it true!
Ye gen'rous Patrons of the rising Stage,
in your cause the lib'ral arts engage;
gentle fair ones, whose benignant smile
the torn bosom of its cares beguile;
'neath your influenec may the Muses reign,
laugh - Melpomene complain;
as their varied feelings they impart,
they delight, refine, and mend the heart!
All here is well!* - But, ah! an anxious fear
on the heart, for those who form our rear
those who vent'rous cross'd the stormy sea,
all their future hopes embark'd with me.
we succeed - should our endeavours please-
female elegance, and manly ease,
your approving eye, our humble cause
gain that dearest verdict - your applause:
reach (though distant) Merit's glorious goal,
Builder, Painter, Actor - form one perfect whole.
Oh! may your bright example spread around,
fix the gen'ral taste on classic ground;
neighb'ring shores your gen'rous fires impart,
raise new trophies to the scenic art! -
shall each isle of the Muse's pow'r proclaim,
from Barbados catch th' inspiring flame!
