THEATRC ROTAL.-At this season of the year all places of amusement expect a continual "slump" in crowdrid houses, and const-queutly the managers do their utmost to place before their public that class of entertainment which experience has shown them to be most appreciated by thtir patrons. A good drama is always appreciated, and will be, so long as good nature and sympathy remain with us and the ehoice of the piece which is called the Life we live," as the bill ..f far for the working population ef Barry this week is a good one. The play represents a period when the working man was not so powerful as his descendant of to-day, and when, it. must be confessed, he had less sense. THe scene is principally among the mills in Man- chester, and the millers are chiefly the actors. There are some stirring representations which the acting makes real, though that is not so well assisted by the setting and shifting as it ought to be. There is one character in the piece which is thoroughly representative of a very common hum- bug ef to-day, namely, Jonas Redwood, who talks of the nobility of work and scurilists everything and everybody else. But his danger does not lie there. lie inaitea men to break laws, to do things by brute force, which will be always effectual in an anarchie country. Dick Redwood (Mr Charles A. Millwarol) makes an admirable hero, and has an exeiting time before the final scene. He is the soldier lover ef May Grove, an heiress (Miss Helen MeCulloeli), who goes through a gteac deal to prove that love can never die-and she does it. Phil Burchill (Mr F. W. Freeman) is nephew to the millowner and a bad man, who, unlike his uncle, is irrealtimabla. T rry UrDowd (Mr Phil Barraud), Polly Welder (Miss Nina Engel), and Nicodemus Noodle (Mr Harry Fenton) supply the cemic element. There is & very streng caste, and the opportunity should not be misat-d of witnessing so fine a reflex of the life we live.—-Next week ULas Adrift Hill and Mr Robert Ayrton's powerful Loudon Company, will appear at the Royal speci- ally with their formost drama, Saved from the Sea." The company eomes direct from the Princess Theatre, London, and should prove an immense attraction'. BARRY DOCK.
