The SHAKSPEARE COMMEMORATION. A meeting of the Shakspeare Memorial Committee was held in London, on Monday, the Archbishop of Dublin in the chair, when the committee appointed to prepare an address to the public reported that in tbeir opinion it was premature to issue any address till the objects of the committee had taken more shape. They approved, however, of the erection of a monu- ment to which room would be afforded for the talents of the sculptor, the painter, and the architect; and that the anniversary of the poet's birthday should, as far as possible, be a holiday over the kingdom. The report was adopted, as also was a recommendation by some members of the committee in their individual capacity, that subscriptions might be opened for the erection of a theatre and the providing a management that would admit of Shakspeare's plat's being. acted, as it was notorious none of the present London theatres were adapted for the purpose. It was agreed, though not without a sharp struggle, that the sum of 30,0007. should be the sum aimed at as sufficient for the proposed monument. The minority were against naming any sum, and thought 30,000k too small. The committee afterwards adjourned for a month.
