The Cinciiinatti Enquirer says: Wit and repartee will be the countersign at the Grand Opera fiouse, the occassion being the flrst appearance in this city for the season of th'at inimitable representative of the pure Iriah drama, Mr.W.J. Scanlan, who will present his ever dopular play, '-The Irisli Minstrel." The piece bas been seen here before, and at the time of its production it met with undbounded favor. Since then it has been and rearranged by its author, Mr. Fred Marsden, and now, with its many new songs, it is more attractive than ever. As "Larry O'Lynn," the Irish minstrel. Mr. Scanlan is seen at his best. Of Mr. Scanlan's ability as an actor it is unnecessary to speak. Those who have seen him knovv how thoroughly he has developed himself, and it is to this study of self that he owes his success as a delineator of the genuine Irishman. In fact there is not a better exponent of the Itish drama on the stage to-day than Mr. Scanlan, and be it on or off the boards, he is always the open-hearted, open-handed Irishman, with whom we are all more or less familiar. Of his singing we caa only speak in praise. While a musician or poet might flnd fault with the length or breadth of certain syllables, the people never do. and they are always the best judges. The play will be haudsomely mounted, with appiopriate properties and new scenery most of which arrived hire a few days ago froin Kew YTork, where it was painted for this production. The compauy supporting Mr. Scanlan is composed of competent actors and actresses.
