“This cosey little theatre is well deserving of the fashionable, and what adds material weight to the pleasant fact, profitable patronage which it is receiving. The managers seem to be untiring in their exercises to please and find that their efforts have not been fruitless. The delineations of negro character form, of course, a dark and laughable feature of the nightly entertainments, while the Excise Commissioners, presided over by Commissioner Haction, continue to revoke licenses in the most outrageous manner. It should be remembered that the Fusiyami troupe of Japanese perform their astonishing feats every night.”

“He [Charley Dobson] was well received, and as a banjoist is one of the best. The manner in which Mr. Dobson was received every evening last week, proves what a favorite he is with the public, and the name of the Dobson Brothers has long since become identified with the banjo.”
