The Theatres.

"Jocelyn."

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

At the Globe theatre Rose Coghlan appeared in "Jocelyn." This celebrated actress fully sustained her reputation last evening, for her work was a marvel of force and power throughout the play. It is in dramatic situations that Miss Coghlan most excels, although in scenes of a lighter character, her fascinating manner shows to excellent advantage. The scene of the play is laid in the time of Louis XIII. of France, and is filled with exciting incidents. The climaxes are strong, especially at the end of the play, where Jocelyn, disguised as a man, avenges the deaths of her brothers by fighting a duel with their murderer. Miss Coghlan handles the sword with skill and acts the scene ith much force. "Jocelyn" will be presented every evening and Saturday afternoon.

"Sweet Lavender.The Boston Museum was comfortably filled last evening at the first production in Boston this season of "Sweet Lavender." "Sweet Lavender" is, as some one has said, a delightful play, delightfully acted. The plot is rather intricate, and full of surprises. Many of the situations are charming, and the dialogue is almost always bright. The sentiment is not false nor overdone, as the title of the play might lead one to expect. The work of the museum company was equal, and the acting of no one in the cast was positively bad. Perhaps the most praise is due to Mr. Wilson, whose impersonation of the barrister Dick Pheny, though once or twice slightly coarse, leaves little to be desired. Miss O'Leary as Lavender, and Miss Sheridan as Minnie Gilfillian did good, faithful, and at many times charming work, Miss Sheridan showing perhaps more originality than Miss O'Leary. Mr. Booth's Horace Bream was well done, though the part is rather a disagreeable one. Next Monday will begin a short season of the favorite old comedies, with the same company.

Tremont Theatre.During the present week at the Tremont theatre, Mr. Nat. C. Goodwin will continue his interesting and in most respects excellent representation of the whole-souled American who owns the gold mine in his new comedy. Steele Mackay's comedy "Colonel Tom" will be put upon the boards next Monday.
