The high legitimacy of the Theatre Francais is still the

order of the day at the St. James's. Un Vetwage is a three-act comedy "en vers," with little action ; but the position of a gentleman who being relieved by death from one marriage cannot escape from parties who would inveigle him into another, is discussed with all that shrewdness and power of .delineating ab- stract character which have belonged to the French from the days of La Bruyere, and with that artificial elegance of diction which is peculiar to the haute comedic. M. Samson is not only the principal actor, but the author of the piece ; and, considering the superior literary qualities of his productions, and, the consmninate finish with which he illustrates them, he may be deemed to hold a very elevated station before the English public.
