Madame Sarah Bcrnhardt's season of 24 nights at the Princess's Theatre, Melbourne, has proved a most pronounced succeas. Her first performance was Camille, in Im Dame aux Camelia; and in this she at once captivated the publio. Still there were doubts as to the ulti mato issue of the speculation, having regard to the high prices, whioh wore doubled in all parts of the house, the fact of the text being delivered in a foreign language, and the staging being scarcely worth noticing. 'As the event proved sho was run upon safe lines. Her next appear ance was in La Tosoa, and tho following night in Fedora, in both of whioh she wou additional laurels.
