Presenting for the fourth consecutivo season Harriet Beechcr Stowe's inmortal work, " Unclo Tom's Cabin," in a inanner absolutely unequalled by an) Oompany in the world : the only firstclass company to play at the penple': popular prices. General admission, 2óc ; all reserved seats 35c, for everybody. - Tickets can be secured at Watt's Jewelrj store. Eeferring to their third appearance in Syracuse, the " Courier" says : - " Critica have puzzled their brains & goocl deal, to account for the wouderful vitality, the astonishing liold that the play of 'Únele Tom's Cabin' has upon the public. Year af ter year it isplayed, and alwaye before crowded houses, when presented by good talent. But few ■women who have made for themselves a reputation as actresses, have gair.ed any credit for themselves in the delineation of Topsy, the incorrigible wench of Mrs. Stowe's creation. Mrs. G. O. Howard and Miss Lillie Wilkinson are about the only ones who have been able, year atter ypar, to play this eharacter tn large and delighted audiences; and it is general% ooaceded that Miss Wilkiusou stands at the head. So, it ia a wise move by Manager Lehnen to celébrate the New Year by engagiug the Wilkinsons, with their large and excellent company, to give us Únele Tom's Cabin, with a matinee in the afternoon. Mr. Charles Wilkinson, (he oldest traveling mana ger in Aineriea, will appoar in his great specialty, Gumption Cute, as played by him in 1853. Georgia. T. Fox, draifLiito: of the late Georgo IJ. Fox, will personate Ijittle Eva, with Lillie Wilkinson M Topsy. The company embraces eightecn artists, all excellent ín their respective rofes." ■■i ■■ in
