also, requested at be of descendants as of a Bobert-1 to of 3. it Theatbici. Mr. Bothern, whose efforts to en tertain the Detroit theatre-goers' for the past two weeks have been so eminently successful, made his last appearance In this city last night, when his new play of Suspense was repeated to the evident satisfaction of a fall house. There Is no denying that thia piece is a success. It was pro duoed under great difficulties, the inferior parts being so imperfectly sustained as to turn some of the more dolicate passages into burlesque, while the properties were but imperfectly provi ded to give full effect to the play. Still IU first presentation gave decided satisfaction, and its second was eminently successful. We congratu late Mr. Bothern on the favorable reception ac corded it. Wo are informed that he has already sold the piece in Sew York, where he will him self perform in it in a fewTmonths,-previous to which fie playa it at BaSalo and other cities. The present week will be occupied, with Irish comedy, in the presentation of which the juvenile Irish vocalist and comedian, Master Alfred Stewart, formerly of the Marsh Juvenile Troupe, will figure conspicuously. Master Stewart comes to Detroit with the most nattering notices from the press of other cities where he has appeared, and an engagement of much interest may be ex. pectea. Mr. B. HcWade also appears with Master Stewart, the two forming an unusual attraction In the comedy line. Three pleceB are on the bill for their first appearance to-morrow night Shandy Mcuuire, second Love, and Limerick Boy. The company that has entertained the Detroit people so long loses-two of ita brightest stars, Miss Cushman and Mrs. Bradshaw, both of whom appeared for the last time last evening. Miss Cushman, who has earned great credit by her as- aidooss efforts to please, and who has improved with greater rapidity than aotreasea usually do, until she has filled, to the great satisfaction of the audiences, the position of leading woman, goes to Cincinnati, where we bespeak for her a favorable reception. Her place will be supplied by Miss Jennie Stanley, well known at the East as a young lady of much ability and great promise. Mrs. Bradshaw goes to Buffalo. Her place has not yet been filled.
