The only novelty of the week has been a short farce, called Vandyke Brown, produced at the little Strand Theatre. The plot has been already familiarized to the public, by Mr. Robert Bell's farce, First and Second Floor, but it serves to show the talent of Mr. I. Clarke, the low comedian of the establishment, in the delineation of such jealous frenzy as con- vulses with laughter the lovers of the broader school of drama. In all the productions at the Strand Theatre, however trifling they are, there is such a zealous spirit of cooperation, and such a thorough abandonment to fun among the actors, that every one who visits it is amused, and it has become one of the most popular houses in the metropolis.
