Mr Wybert Reeve gave hi 3 second cinematographic exhibition at the Princess's Theatre last evening before an audience that were most appreciative in their approval of the many pictures shown by this very remarkable machine, which is, without doubt, the most superior of its class that has been seen in this City. The scenes were exceedingly life-like, and, although there was very little to pick and chose from Mr Reeve's large assortment of interesting pictures, perhaps the best views were those of Truer's serpentine dance, the Czar's entry to Paris, the Prussian dragoons at jumping practice, and M'Kinley addressing the populace in Washington. Miss Hope Nation again sang two solos in good style; while Mr Reeve himself contributed two recitations. Mrs Gallaugher, who presided at the piano, played very appropriate music. Another entertainment will be given to-night.
