The Spirit of the Times

From Things Theatrical

  Buckley's—Continue to do a flourishing business, their songs are received with great applause, and their anecdotes, conumdrums, and witticisms, always produce a deal of mirth and laughter from their large audience. If there are any strangers in the city, who have not yet seen this comical band of minstrels, they should lose no time in securing the opportunity.

  Wood's Minstrels—Are full of business—delighting every body who go to see them, with their delineations of negro life, peculiar both to the Northern and Southern "darkies." An evening spent here will be paid with interest in the frolic and fun of the entertainments.
