lecture wa3 on the theme; -J5er" True
to Thyself and it U hardly necessary
to say that it was a masterful production
and that it called forth and enchained
the intense interest of his audience
throughout its entire delivery.
Dr. Hawthorne will lecture again
to-night on ' Eminent Orators, Ancient
and Modern," when we trust that there
will be a large attendance. The price
of admission for this lecture has been

night. It takes two ears to transport
all their scenery and one of them has
already arrived, and tho company
could mako a. very respectable show
with what thoy have , but prefer to lose
a day rather than appear wi'u auy por
tion of tho perfonranco shorn ; or cur
tailed of iu beautiful coonic effects.
The performance is ono of the best
of its kind in tbe country and is

There was a fair audience-
Opera House last night to witneH the
performance of Hiss Annie Pixley and
her first rale company In the play of
M'liss. tho Child of the Sierras." in
which Miss Pixley assumes -the title
role. . : Sho is a charming woman and. a
most accomplished and versatile actress
and at once took complete possession
of the attention, syspathy and affection
of her andienco which sho retained
throughout the entire plaj." 'Her
support was In the main excellent. Mr.
Frank Losee. as Yuba Bill; and Mr-
lerbert Archer, as Juan Walters, were
especially good and deserving of more
than a passing notice. The play was
interspersed with several songs which
were rendered by Misa Pixley with
unaffected grace aad consummate skill
and as a consequence received the hearty
applause of the audience. There was
but one opinion upon the streets to-day.
which was, that the performance last
night was all that could be desired and
was well worthy a much larger patro
mage than it received. - We hope that
the company may be induced to risi
as again, when, we can assure them
they would be greeted with a crowded
