Twelfth Night was ptaeluced at Covent Garden last night. The

performance dithered but little from that at the Haymarket when Miss ELLEN T nee appeared there as 17o/EE after her return front America ; and it was ()el:: better by ME. now s's characteristically ludicrous per sonation ef the foolish height pd rm.
