“NIBLO’S GARDEN.—During this twelfth week of the representation of the ‘White Fawn,’ Niblo’s Garden is nightly crowded with as enthusiastic a multitude as ever. The changes which have been introduced throughout the second and third acts seem to have converted the entire piece into a novelty of the highest attraction. Last evening the new comic ballet, entitled ‘The Loves of Martha and Lionel,’ in which Mlle. Augusta Sohlke had a fine opportunity, as old Dr. Rush would have said, of ‘energizing her functions’ and evincing her wonderful vitality; the admirable ‘Farragut Matelot,’ in which Mlle. Bonfanti disp[layed all her surpassing grace in an entirely novel light; the grand tableau of ‘Neptune’s Daughters at the Bath;’ the ‘Waltz Amour,’ marvelously danced by Fraulein Schlaeger, the child pupil of Fanny Elssler; the grand ballet of ‘The Bersagtiert,’ in which the Colonel, Mlle. Invernezzi, exhibited talents as a drill officer that the late lamented Colonel Ellsworth might have envied; the inimitable ‘Hungarian Polka,’ by Mlle. Augusta Sohlke; and last, by no means least, the song of ‘The Bridal Morn,’ exquisitely sung by Miss Fanny Stockton, elicited rapturous applause. ‘The Bridal Morn’ was composed expressly for Miss Stockton by Mr. Howard Glover, who led the orchestra in a style worthy of the reputation which he has so long enjoyed in London.”
