MRS HAN .VAN'S COMPANY.—This excellent dramatic company, under the management of Mrs Hannan, of Wrexham, paid a visit to this town last Tuesday. In consequence no doubt cf the inclemency of the weather, the attendance as but limited, and Major Mainwaring, under whose patronage the entertainment was held, was also for the same reason absent. However, in compli- ance with numerous irfluential requests, Mrs Hannan gave another entertainment on Wednes- day night, when a comparatively "full In use was secured. The pieces played were Nan, the good for nothing," and I- L:idy Audley's Secret," Mrs Hannan in the last piece personating the- principal part to perfection. The entertainment was a complete success, and we hope that Mrs Hannan will comply with the numerous solicita tions, and pay the town a visit in a short time again.
