Not only are the numerous characters cleverly and attractively played, but the settings are really magnificent, whether within the > walls of gay palaces, or in the open air of spots which themselves inspire ideas' of romance. "The Three Musketeers^" with specia^ music by the orchestra of the nouse, will be repeated this evening.' SHORTT'S THEATRE.'
