“Bateman’s rentree in ‘Leah’ was a great success.  The house was crowded, and the reception of the artists by the audience was extremely flattering.”

“Miss Bateman opened to a good house at Niblo’s, on the 4th, in ‘Leah.’ Since then, owing to various adverse circumstances, the attendance has shown a falling off.  She will continue here for a few weeks longer, and then, we understand, the lady will make a visit to our ‘country cousins’ in England.”
