M. Aoharcl has reappeared at the St. James's as Christophe

le Cordier; a character which he makes more probable, and leis comical, than Buckstone's version. Be is supported by Mademoiselle Desiree, a pleasant actress; who in her turn is less comic than Mrs. Fitzwilliam. The singing of Achard is capital; he gives the vaudeville melodies a point which they rarely have on the French stage. While talking about Buckstone and 1VIrs. Fitz- william, we have assumed a recollection that The Scarecrow is an adap- tation of Christophe.
