The Grand will have next Monday as a magnet to draw the hosts who love masio in its best estáte, that sterling baritone, W. T. Carleton, and his excellent musical organization, which will appear in our city one nighc. Mr. Carleton presents this eeason a novelty in the musical line, an Irish opera en titled "The Lily of Killarney," which gives to him and his company the best opportunities for displaying their various talents, and permits of the blending of pathos with humor and Irish speech. The music is by Sir Jalius Benedict who was mnsio master to Qneen Victoria. He had traveled extensively in Ireland and thoroughly caught the Irish melodie strain. The libretto is by Dion Boucoicault, than whom none have perhaps given better portrayal of the Celtic character in its various phases, and is a musical adaptation of his noled play, "Colleen Bawn." This renders further encomium unnecessary. Ainong the principal members are Miss Rena Atkinson, Jay C. Taylor and Geo. W. Campbell. Wm. Hamilton, the celebrated basso of the American and Tavary opera companies,Tom Ricketts tl e well known singing comedian, whilstamong the other ladies of the company are Miss Clara Wisdom, cunsidered the best of character actresses, Miss Bertha Lassall, late of the Chas.
