The city has been startled to-day (states aI telegram from Sydney, which appeared in the Herald of the 26th ult.) by informa tion transpiring as to an elopement which was cleverly planned and carriedout yester day morning. It appears that one of the members of the companyof Illusionists has since they have been in Sydney, been . in the habit of paying, his addresses to .the daughter of a wall-known owner of tile city theatres. The young lady was respon sive and favored the suit of the magician, but on an appeal being made to her 'Papa' he proved obdurate, frowned on the match, and commanded his daughter to think no more of an alliance with the professional. Love was stronger, however, than the filial feeling in the young lady's breast,; and she acceded to her lover's reqoest that she would elope with 'him. At. daybreak on Wedsesday she left the parental roof, and the Illusionist being in waiting, the pair reached Bathurst by the earl?y train, and tlhere,in accordance wit...
