“The American Theatre, R. Butler proprietor, commences the new year with several new ideas, and many new performers. This week, those two clever pantomimists, Maffitt and Bartholomew, enter upon the scene, and offer a variety of acts in the execution of which they are so justly celebrated. Chas. E. Collins, the curious Cure, also puts in an appearance, and will introduce a budget of new things. J. Allen, Ethiopian comedian, joins the famed black band, and contributes to the general entertainment. But best of all, comes Lizzie Schultz, the pleasing vocalist and danseuse, with whom we all have spent delightful evenings at the American, in happy days gone by. Mons. La Thorne, the stage manager, will see all these new players, as well as our old favorites, well bestowed.”
