On reading the advertise ments, W. Townsend, Esq., to take the chair, and a host of local talent to appear, I confess I did expect to hear something worth hearing, ana was 1001 enougu to expena wie waoie sum of twe shillings with the idea of having an hour's enjoyment, but instead thereof I ex perienced the truth, pf the old saying, ' Blessed are they that expect nothing, for they are sure not to be disappointed.' Suffice it to say if a Committee of gentlemen, with W. Townsend, Esq., at their head, wish to make a present of £20 to Signor Abecco, let them do so out of their own pockets.
