BfGl VK’N OPERA HOI SE.
The Theatrical Season Opened LaM
Niglit to a Crowded House.
When the curtain rose last night on Mclntyre.- a
Heath’s minstrels at DeGives Opera House," even- sent
i was filled and standing room was not abundant. H
seemed as if all Atlanta was trying to got in. 11.-d tm
i clerk called the roll of the house from the stage he wojfir;
■ have found a quorum present. Several clergymen toe
I in the audience. V
! The house has been newly painted, and everything ‘
looked as fresh and as sweet about it as a bunch of
Mclntyre «fc Heath are the stars of the combination;
the former having an endless fund of dry humor that
keeps the house in a smile, rather than in Joud laughter,
all the time he ’ has the floor.”
Harry KarTt has a very sweet tenor voice. His song,

joy it more if anything, than the gallery gods. .. i

I equaled in the world to-day. That is saying a g -d
deal, but, it is certain that Ddhaner’s performance is I
• unapproached liy even the celebrated Majiltons.

I very much. There will be a matinee to-day, and the f
