THEATRE ROYAL.—There are produced this week at the above house two play s of very exceptional merit. The first, At the World's Mercy," was produced on Mut.day. Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings, and the second will be staged this evsn- ing (Thursday), Foiday, and Saturday. The Zingara," played by the same company, may be looked forward to with interest. It is a tale of gipsy life, the principal part being in the hands of Miss Dorothy Levant* (Zanetta), who is so popular in Marjory in "At the World's Mtrcy." It may here be remarked that though the majotity of the company, as usual, are of the male persuasion, they are by no means the better actors, not even taken in the gross. The acting of Miss Dorothy Levante, Miss Marie Barrett, and Miss E. Luceine, deserves the greatest praise. They, in conjunction with Mr A. Lester and Mr H. R. Grind all, are the mainstay of the play At the World's Mercy," and there is no doubt that in the" Ziogara "these aetors will figure quite as conspicuously as in the former piece. During the unfolding of the plot, a strong variety entertainment will be gone through, sup- plemented by instrumental selections, songs, duetts, &0.
