Theatres.

Boston Museum.The fifth week of the old comedies was begun last evening with the performance of "Old Heads and Young Hearts." Mr. Geo. W. Winson had the leading role in Jere Rural, the old country cleryman. It is one of his best impersonations. The comedy will be given until Thursday when the "Road to Ruin" will follow.

Merry Monarch.The third week of the "Merry Monarch" at the Gloge, shows that Francis Wilson is still inimitable in his line, and no better witness of this fact could be than that his appearance on the stage calls forth bursts of laughter which close only with his exit. Marie Jonsen commands a generous share of applause and although she is not so bewitchingly pettle as in years one by, yet she still evinces a charming dexterity in dancing and can still be called "nimble footed." The "Merry Monarch" continues this week and next.

Paul Jones.Agnes Huntington in "Paul Jones" began the last of her three weeks' engagement at the Hollis Street Theatre last evening. As the hero of the opera Miss Huntington is most successful, while the support given her by the remainder of the company gives general satisfaction. The opera is produced with the greatest care, and the groupings and stage settings are quite artistic. The success of Paul Jones the coming week is assured from its popularity during the last fortnight.
