mr. draper’s sunday evening concerts.

     This gentleman first started a series of concerts, which, judging from the large attendance at Irving Hall on Sunday last, and from the superior style in which the excellent programme was rendered must become popular. His efforts, however, have not been met in a proper spirit by some of the proprietors of our places of amusement. He advertised to the effect that the concerts commenced in Irving Hall would be continued in Miss Lucy Rushton’s theatre on this evening, and made an engagement with the ostensible manager of that establishment to that effect. The proprietor, however, refused to let him have the theatre on any terms, entirely disregarding the fact that Mr. Draper expended a great deal of money in preparing the establishment for his concerts. Consequently these Sunday evening entertainments are necessarily postponed until Sunday next, when a suitable place will be found.”
