The Williamsons will appear at the Opora House on Thursday eveuing of next week, in tho popular play "Struck Oil." The Indianapolis Sentinel of thu lst iiist. says of their appearance in that city: Mr. and Mrs. J. O. Williamson produoed their eucoessful play "Struck Oil" to a large audience at the Grand Opera House, last evening. As good wine needs no bush, so their drama, which was received with so much favor when it was first played here last season, requires nothing in the way of commendation. It is thoroughly enjoyable from the rising of the curtain to the fall thereof. Mr. Williarnson's portrayal of the oharacter of the honest, blundering and jolly Germán shoemaker, who, to save his home, goes "mit de war" as a I'substitution" for the rascally deacon, is as true to nature as ever, and Mrs. Williamson, as his daughter Lizzie, ia as live as a oricket. Both received frequent encores. The support is very good, and the piece is well set. The camp scène opposite Pittsburg and the view ot' Oilsburg were greatly admired.
