"Genevieve dho rabant" still draws welll-lled houses at the P1rince of Walles Opera Hlouse, and the nmuinlgornont havo cause for congratulating themsolves that this pioco has had such an astonishing long ran. Althought Oobnllachi is remak ablo for the extravagance and absurdity ho usually infuses into his productions, lie appears to have sulrpassed himself in this respect in the opera nowi before the public.

Correspondence. THE PENTRIDGE STOCKADE. To the Editor of the Advertiser. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 24 September 1873

Correspondence. THE 1PENTRIDGE STOCKADE. To the Editor of the Advertiser. Sir-In your issue of September 10th, one signing himself "a Resident of Co burg" appears to have taken up the canuse of the official concerning whom I ad dressed you in a former letter, and has also expressed his astonishment at aletter which appeared in your issue of the week previous, headed "Pentridgo Stockade and its Oftlicers." Your correspondent states that having been a resident in the locality lihe is" sulliciently well acquainted with transactions connected with the in terior working of the stockade to know that the assertions made are incorrecct nay more-are positive falsehoods." Now Sir, your correspondent having gone so far as to openly impeach my veracity, I have no alternative but to return the com pliment in full, and, although in the latter part of his letter he says that to reply to such a disgraceful production would simply bring him to the level of the writer, I now challenge him in place of...

Amusements. THEATRE ROYAL. [Newspaper Article] — North Melbourne Advertiser — 15 October 1873

Amusements. THEATRE ROYAL. The "Sea of Ice" is a sensational spec tacular drama in five acts, in which the Stock Company largely participates. The dialogue abounds in heroic sentiments, and blood and murder threats, which must appal the very stoutest heart. But the scenery is really magnificent, and the seenic effects grand beyond description. It is needless to criticise the acting of any of the ladies or gentlemen who took part in this piece, as all appeared to have done their best. Mr. Dampier and Miss Shoppardo sustained the principal charac ters and acquitted themselves to the satisfaction of the audience, who ap. .pearcd to enjoy the seenic effects amaz ingly. It is likely to have a run. TIlE OPERA. Last night the opera house was filled to overflowing to listen to the grand con cert, in which Mddle. Jenny Claus was the leading figure.

NIGIIT SCHOOLS. IN CARLTON. Complaints have reached us from the atepayers of Carlton of the indifference displayed by the members of the Board of Advice to the establishment of a night school in that locality. It is justpossible, however, that the blame is not wholly at tributable to any inactivity on the part of the members of that body, but rather to the Minister of Education,. wlo appears tot be wholly. indilfferent to the suggestions made to him "from the various boards called into existonce under the Educatio Act. It is .desirable, however, that th Carlton Board of Advice .should infor the citizoens what steps, if any, have beooe taken to establish night schools.

We do not think there is a public thoroughfare ardund Melbourne in such a plight, and it is certain that unless something is done towards its repair immediately the injury to the borough will be very serious. TVith in the past few weeks we have known of more than one family visiting the district with the intention of settling therein, but the shaking and suffering sustained in going over the streets put all thoughts of purchasing homesteads-in the locality out of the question. The highway is as bad as a bush road, and dangerous to travel upon. The councillors must see the injury that will arise to the channelling by neglecting it much longer; already it bears visible marks...
