Robert Downing, l'ormerly a leading man in Mary Anderson's company but vho bas met witu great success staring it as Spastacus took the BufEalo, Í. Y.,peopleby storm at bis engagement recently linisbed tbere. Of the )lay a Buflalo paper says: "Spartacus the Gladiator' is a grand play. It is one of that old Forrest school that is intensely deelamatory and particularly thrilling. Nature has done much tor Mr. Downing and he bnngs to his aid a noble presence, a loman figure and one complete and inished in all those details and essenials that fit the man to the cbaracter and the character to the man. The setting oí this play is strikingly jeautiful and the scenic effects are iu teeping with the artistic work of the star and hia company. "Spartacus" wiü be presented for the last time this evening, it is not necessary at this time to go into the plot of the play, or in detail of the splendid support given the star. Suffice it to say that they who missed it have failed to enjoy one of the dramatic treats of the season. An exception musD here be made in a word of commendation for the excellent rendition of rhasarius' "View of the Crucitix'on" by Mr. Henry Avelins.
