It is seldom that any woman wins, on her first appearance on tho stage, conimenda-tions so cordial and so general as those gi von by tho Neijy York critics to Mrs. Leslie Carter. Tho star's appoaranco at tho HoIIis tO' morrow ovoning, therefore, is awaited with a go*i deal of pleas.int oipectatlon. Mrs. Oarter is said to possess raro natur.i,l ad-Tantaaros, keen dramatic instinct, unusual maonaotism. and a fine capacity for portraying the deeper emotions. She is further dO' clared to possess many of the qualities which have enabled Agnes Ethel and Clara Morris to win distinction. f m EWE nl, 1301 Wasluiisrtou Street. Tirtdledy Winks in Court. "Tiddlcdy Winks" is so well known in tho parlors thi^ season tliatonti in not especially Burprisod lo soo it in tho law reports.

An entortajiiincut, tjuito out of tho usual order of Sunday niKht oll'orings, is to ho expected at Music Iiall this e-conine.

Xjateat Eanlon Speotnelo Comes as a Eoliday Offering. Years of, work havo boon devoted to "Superba." the now pantoraima ballot spoc-taclo that tho Hanlons are to bring to the Globe Theatre tomorrow evening. It is a fairy story, devised by Mr. John J. MoNally, and illustrated with such an array of unique tricks as only a Haulon could create for the public delectation. One of tho special scenes, represantiug an African jungle, has an elephant of realism that is startling, tho chattering monkeys, frogs and toads, the snakos horribly pictured in green and gold, and all mannerof croojiing tilings, and the wild hoa.sts of the jiinglc, to all aunoarancos s.avogo enough to cat one without tbo least provocation.

"Kosodale." ever a welcome play when worthily presented, is to bo given iiroduo-tion at the Museum tomorrow evening. It is unneooBsary to speak in commendation of the merits of tho comedy which Lester Wallack first made famous, and which has fiven honest pleasure to so many audiences, 'his revival will have especial interest as ijitroducinc Mr. Eben Plymplon as the gallant Elliot Grey for tbo first time. Mr. Boniface is to bo tho Miles MclCcnna. Miss Clark as Lady Florence. Miss Addison as Tabitho Storke, Miss O'Loary as dainty Rosa Leigh-who will not be glad to see tlicin again, with Wilson's Bunherrj'Kobb, .Mr. Davenport's JIatthew Leigh and Olive HomaiiB as little Sir Arthur/ "Kostdale" sbciuld bo a g-reat niar-'uoL for tho public, lloyt'.s "Bunch of itcys," with new songs, new medleys, new g.'tgs, new business and new lines togi\-e a fresliness (othe pcrforra-arico is to be the Grand OiM'ra liouse card ibis w�ek. Miss Ada Botliner niaUes a lively and pleasing Teddy, Ixmis We.slev is credited with great success as Grimes, and W. C. Crofibie's Snaggs is iironomiced a capital piece of light comedy acting. The rest of tho company are said to do "excellent well," and tho poronnially popular play will no doubt ag.iin justify ita reputation as a money and plaudit winner. ATTRACTIONS DIVEBSE.

That Marvellous ManeiJ Horse the Gi'eat Maenot at Austin & Stone's. Tho placing on oxlnbition at Austin & Stone's Museum, of tho magnificent Oregon tlioroughbrod stallion, Linus, has proven to bo a masterly stroke of managerial policy. Multitudes attended dming tho entire week. Tha aggregate attendance was rooordod at a little over 70,000 persons, and it has been next to an impossibility at times to satisfactorily take care of them. Prominent horsemen from distant places havo soon this equine plionomoiion. Tlio spectators havo represented all classes and sections, and universal has been the appreciation of the beauty .and wonderful luxuriance of tho stallion's extraordina.t-y foreliop. mane and t.'ui as they trailed iu glossy, silken inasscs upon tho floor of tho platform. There seems to bo but ono verdict expressed. That is, tliat "Linus is a niuvvel of marvels, uuliko any oqnino wonder ever befovo seen in thiy citv." So great has been tho success attotid-iug this first week of his exhibition, that Ifauaenrs Stono & Shaw will retain him another week.

Popular Errors ConcerninE the Means, Employed by Nihilists. Tho coniing visit to this country of Sercuis Stepniak, who sails on the 20th inst., will do much to dispel tho popular errors concerning the moans employed by tho Nihilists to secure tho success of thoir revolutionary measures. 'This famous revolutionary leader in tho Russian movomonts has been so closely identified with every .attempt made by tho Nihilist3,.to,accomplish their ends, and with the financial means at their command, that his statements concerning this phase of the Russian plots will bo vastly instructive. Ho claims, � it is understood, that the sacrifices made by his confederates and the rovolution.ary party in Russia at large have never been equalled by tho peoples of any nation in a IiTw struggle, and his personal experiences are likely to substantiate tho Pttsition ho takes when thoy aro made known to the American public through his lectures in his coming tour.

Gounod Prof. Cromwell's Fourth Lecture. Tonight Prof. Cromwell will aolivor his foui'th illustrated looturo at tho Tremont, choosing for his subject ono of vast opportunities for grand illustration, and also for tho happiest of "talks" such as the professor is most delightful in. "Berlin and the Gorman Empire" is tho subject. It cannot bo too omphatioally and earnestly said, or rtithor repeated, that for a coni-tortablo month's journey an evening with Prof. Cromwell is beyond compare. Seated at ease we are carried by tho m.^glc of his beautiful illustrations and his vivid descriptions to tai'-away lands. Prof. Cromwell furiilBhes a magic carpet like tho convenient vohiolo of the Arabian ties, c ho lights.

Stoddard Among Danes ond Swedes. At Boston Music Hall on Tuesday evening jiid Saturday afternoon of this M'cek ,Tobii u Stoddard will give his lecture on "Sweden, tho Queen of tho Baltic." In this lecture, conceded by all his audiences of the lu'csent .series, to he one of the most charming in his repertoire, ho unfolds the first pages of his note boolc of Scandanavian travol, wliich proved so enjoyable to him last sum-raor. His journey began at Copenhagen, where ho made a short stay and was able to appreciate as never before the works of Thorwaldsen.who has now become almost the patron saint of Denmark, Thence to Gothenbm'g, the second oity of Sweden, in whose vicinity Mr. Stoddard was so fortunate as to be able to enjoy experiences of Swedish homo life and hospitality. 'Then followed a sojourn at Sweden's beautiful capital, Stockholm, and a visit to its former capital, now its chief historic site, Upsola. The fitting climax to this journey, whoss novelty and beauty were a pornetual delight to Sir. Stoddard, was a sail through the heart of Sweden by the Gotha canal, a work whose engineering achievements seoiu to bid defiance to the laws of gravity, .\s his photographer was everywhere his vory shadow, Mr. Stoddard does not hesi-taic to promiso eiooptionnlly fine ilhistra-tions. Next week will take place tho lecture on the "Land of the Midnight Sun." Olof Krarer in Tremont Temple. A unique attraction is promised iu the Boston Lyceum course next Tuesday evening.
