“Pluto holds his own. He always did, in fact, if we may trust the mythology. He has made about sixty appearances at the Theatre Comique, and he will continue to appear there until further notice. Mr. Lingard presents some novelties just now. One of them is the ‘German Onion Vender’—a comic personation involving a comic song, and eminently characteristic of this clever performer. Mr. Lingard has given his caricature of ‘Captain Jinks’ for nearly five hundred times. The popularity of the thing is mysterious, but it is a fact. In June, Mr. Lingard will go to Boston. Mr. and Mrs. Howard Paul are, we understand to come to the Theatre Comique. They will be welcome.”
