The Spirit of the Times
Unsigned [William T. Porter?]
New York: 30 October 1847

  Christy's Minstrels continue their representations with unabated and unabating success. Julius, "the bones," yet demonstrates his shirt ruffle, after a scientific shake on his instrument, and the tamborine duet appeals loudly to one's laughter. The barn scene, for such the dancing exhibition certainly is, is funny and effective as ever; the crowded out perch on the door as usual, and there are no complaints, except that Mechanics Hall is not large enough. Can it not be stretched?
