By subtle touches of voice and gesture, Mr. Astley conveyed in a remarkably in- telligent manner the meaning and pupose of the well-drawn characters, which were differentiated with consummate art. In another respect, it was an astonishing feat of memory. Between the acts Miss Barbara Berwick, a clever voung pianist, displayed her powers as an inteipreter of Chopin." PROPERTY SALE.—Mr. ( has.
