The Mermaid is a mys- tical title, very easily explained, and a most amusing play. The plot of the piece, like the title, goes far beyond the bounds of probability, but that is more relished by the delighted audience which have seen the play this u e., k than s'b r facts, or the usual facts of s-tage produciions. The amount of vaiiety in the piece is amazing ai d embraces all that can be e('n 011 the mutic hall stage, as well as on the legitimate boards. Th< Mermaid is recommend* d as a good antidote for melancholia, and a desirable refuge for the miser- able. The Hon. Lieutenant Padney Pickingtin (Mr Herbert Selby) is a study, and the Mermaid (Miss Lily Stewart), a paragon of lovliness and feminine propriety. Next week The Hand of Iron will be produced.
