Of course, the engagement of Frederic Lemaltre at the St.

James's Theatre is not allowed to pass over without a revival of the Auberge des 'Writs, which he has immortalized by his world-famous Robert Macaire. His eccentricities in this remarkable character are still most abundant; and, by introducing a burlesque of the Ethiopian Serenaders, he contrives to connect his hero with the last new "rage" of modern times. It is to be regretted that Lemaltre has such a predilection for a dull piece called Le Burbler du Roi d'Aragon. It is neither interesting as a drama nor does it admit of an effective delineation of character.
