The opora house was ├▒lled with a large, enthusiastic and expectaut audienoe. A short synopsis of the play may be of interest to our readers. The soene is laid in Franoe. Oount and Countess D'Ange reoeive a telegram from their absent son, Robert, who is making an extendea tour of the continent. The Count ia inoensed over his return and, while he goes to the station to receive him, his Bon enters unannounoed. Mignon D'Arle. his oousin, warmly weloomes him, who he informs of his reoent marriage to an Araerioan girl, whom he thinks is b noble and exceptional woman, when he is an adventuress, having a husband in Amerioa. Through Mignon's pleading all is forgiven and forgotten. Mignon, who is but a ohild, realizes her more than oousinly love for Robert, and determines to leave lier home. Sheridan K . Stubbles, a woud-be playwright, seos Mrs . Robert D'Ange and reoognizes her as bis former wife, and follows her to her home, where Mignon alone sees him and learns all. Sho deoides to save her oousin's wife's reputation, and so disappears. The last soene is laid at the sea shore, where Count D'Ange is with his family. Robert D'Ange now realizes that he loves his oousin and not his wife, and is in deep dispair over Mignon's disappearatic Finally Mignon appears and Sheridan K. Stubbles confronta his wif , who makes the best of the discovery and asks him to t.ake her baak to Amerioa. He rouaentf and;Rolert and Mignon are made happy at last. The play is light, enteitainiiig and short, whioh is in its favur. Th e re were some hitohes in the play and one saene was left entirely out, by one of the players putting in his appearanoe at the wrong time, but not withstan iug all things, the play is well put upon the boards, and was well reoeived. Miss Maddern, as Mignon, is bright and piquaut and adapts herself to the oharaut r. Shu entered into the spirit of the pliy with great zest and earnestneHB, and was twioe oalled before the curtiiin. There were repeated oheers for Prof. Hennequinn, who responded by ooming out and bowing his thanks to the audience. The Professor ia to be oongratulated upon the success of the seoond appearanoe of the play, and we have no doubt that wherever produoed it will meet with as hearty a reception as it did in our oity.
