Amusements. THE OPERA. Balfe's popu'ar opera of the " Rose of Castile" was produced for the first time on Monday evening, on which occasion the house was crowded in every part.

As soon'as this lady appeared on the stage, she was greeted with extraoedinary applause, and after the audience had listened to her for a while, the most fivourable opinions weore created of her vocal power. lHer acting was graceful and artistic, and she exhibited an intimate acquaintance with the charac ter she assumed that stamped her at once as a lady possessed of undoubted genius. Her voice is a charming soprano, and in rendering slme of the more dificult parts, a perceptable shako runs throughout, showing the results of careful training. She was encored several times and was likewise called before the curtain at the conclusion of the first not. Mr. Beaumont made his first appearance since .hi...

VICTORIA AT THE VIENINA EXHIBITION. Victoria, a correspondent of the lforn. ing Advertiser says, has sent a most capital display, far better than she did to Paris. The wool hales are a really in teresting series, showing us the various qnalities of the wools, in which those of the merino sheep figure largely. Fleeces of greasy and washed wools are disposed in glass cases, while underneath are the bales from which they were taken, left open for the visitor to examine them himself.
