William e. Telegram from new York brings us the intelligence that win. Is. Burton the famous actor and manager is no More. We. Burton died at his residence in the City of now York of disease of Tho heart on Friday the 10th inst. Few members of the theatrical profession in America have done More to elevate dramatic Art and some expression of borrow for his loss Home acknowledgement of obligation for Hie ser vice is therefore due As Well from us As from those whose lives were daily cheered by his inimitable humor. We. Burton was a native of England where his father was the editor of an influential provincial newspaper. After receiving a thorough classical education he became connected with the paper and on the de the of his father became its sole editor. Whilst die charging the duties of the editorial chair he proved his profound acquaintance with All the intricacies of the greek language by correcting Tho proof of a valuable edition of the tragedies of i Oahu is. Though with a Brilliant career As a journalist before h a he choose to change the labor and honors of editorial life for the Drudgery the disappoint cents and the excitement of the stage. He made his appearance if our memory serves us at Brighton and though he gave some evidence of comic Talent there were but faint indications of that Brilliant Genius which afterwards made him a worthy Success or to Liston Dowton and Munden. Before arriving at Eminence in England he came to America and settled in Philadelphia where after the usual Vicissitudes of an actor s life he became manager of the Arch Street theatre Philadelphia at that time though extremely populous was nothing More than a sprawling country town and though the pit of the theatre was tolerably Well hired wit i River men and Dock loaf is at a shilling a head a beggarly account of empty boxes chilling the Hopes and dampening the spirits of the players presented but few incitements to extort or improvement or. Burton therefore temporally Abi Joned Tho soak and again aet Fload the pen becoming the editor of the lieu Leman s Magazine. The Magazine was an extremely Well edited period ical though never a pecuniary Success. In is-17 or 18, or. Burton saw that the Metropolis afforded a wider yield for professional exer tin Thau any provincial town und removed to new York where against Tho advice of the most experienced an astute Thea Trimai Mana Gers he leased Palma s old opera House on Chambers Street and began a career of pm purity Seldom equalled in the history of the stage. He gathered around him Harry Placide Blake Brougham Lester Marv Taylor mrs. Limey and other Oelzel wieties who formed a Constellation of rare brilliancy and Power. Is entirely ignored the starring system that curse of the profession adopting the belief that Tho Mode to secure a steady and lasting sup port was by presenting a play compete As a whole rather then by allowing a dim Star to Tret und strut his hour upon the stage at the expense of every other , and the sacrifice of the Point of the play. At Bur tons he produce i the toddles the serious faintly Dombey and son David t Copperfield and Ottier Well known favourites of til play go ing Public and soon realized a handsome Fortune. With increasing Means he adopted a style of living becoming a gentleman of refinement and health lie built a Villa Ile Neove a mansion in Tae City and entertained his friends with a sumptuous Eis bordering on Megui licence. He added to his private Library rare editions of the classics and every work upon Shakespeare which the labors of two Hundred years have produced. Be was then at to e Zenith of his Fame and popularity. Stran Gers never visited new York without going to Burton s. He was one of the institutions of the City. Meantime the tendency of Trade and population was up Brodway and Chambers Street which had been in the neighbourhood of All the Large hotels became Down town and o it of Tho Way. Bur ton therefore determined to follow up town and leased that stupendous failure the metropolitan the tre in b. Oad Uay opposite Boud Street Llerve Fortune deserted him. Wal Hick and Laura Keene had drawn from him his most popular performers and after resort ing to every expedient and employing All the stars in the country lie was admonished by heavy losses to close his doors. With great reluctance be took his Farewell As a manager and started on a starring tour though the South and a eat. A Lew Weiks ago whilst performing at Troy his physicians informed him that his life depended on his immediate withdrawal from Tho stage. Hacked by a painful affection of the heart and harassed by corroding cares be returned to new l Ork to die. He is gone and his Fame As an actor everything tradition al will too be forgotten. He was one of the most completely american died englishman we Sver saw. As an actor with the exception of or. Buckstone he was without an equal in his line either in America and England lie was moreover a Public Benefactor for he furnished to the overtaxed and care burdened people relaxation entertainment Aud amusement. It is whispered that he died in embarrassed circumstances. We Trust such apprehensions Are unfounded. A whose flashes of merriment lightened Many a weary heart ought not to die in misery or want. The radiance of an affluent Prosperity ought to have lit by the last hours of him the did so Mel to in it life pleasant to others. Look to i Helm la bushels Timothy seed wan wans Chew co.
