Eoitob Gdabd: In the I nut issue of your
paper under tbe heading of "A Question of
Mail, wnicti la in regard to the rarrviug of
Ihe mail between Gosben and Dexter, via
this place, we mink that you (iihiuteutiou
ally, we are aure) do Mr. Jauies Parvin, the
postmaster at Dexter, and myself aa pout
master at tbii place, an injustice when you
nay, "we cannot comprehend why the Pleas,
ant Hill postmaster and Dexter should desire
their mail to be delayed." I will take tbe
liberty of speaking for Brother Parvin and
myself at the same time hy saying we always
welcome the mail, and tbe sooner it arrives
the better it suits not ourselves alone, but all
who are interested, and indeed who are not?
The schodulo time fur arrivals nnd depart
ures is: Leave Goshen daily at 7 a. in. Ar
rive at Dexter at 11 o'clock. Leave at 12
and arrive at Goshen at 4. The contractor
says that it would not suit him at all to leave
Goshen for Dexter after the arrival of the
local train from Roaebnrg, as you suggest.
8. HaNDAKKK, P. M
We kuow that postmasters Ilandsnker
nnd Parvin desire their mail on Ihe quickest
time possible, therefore called their attention
lo the fact that if the overland trains do not
deliver mill at Goshen the mail csrried on
I hem for tbe Pleasant Hill aud Dexter post
olHces will bo behitid one diy. El

Women wiped tears from their eyes; men
moved uneasily In their seats, and Clara Mor
ris triumphed at the Academy nf Music last
evening. She apieared in D'Ennery's play,
"Renee De Moray," and played on the feelings
of one of the most synithetio and apprecia
tive audiences that this writer has ever seen in
any Buffalo Theatre. Miss Morris has been
seen here before in the piece, but her work last
night clouded the former effort; It was a rev
elation. Those little mannerisms of speech and
delivery that we have been compiled to
find fault with In times put were buried. She
hate to a height of emotionalism that called
forth spontaneous applause, pitying tears and
generous hearted sympathy. Her acting struck
a responsive chord in every heart and thrilled
us by Its natural forcefulneaa and Intensity.
Ons feels like apologising for describing such
an effort as acting; it might more appropriate
ly be terms I the natural work of a genius.
' Kenea De Moray Is one ol those plays that
this nueen of emotional actresses fairly
revels In. It gives her every opportunity for
ths display of tbat bistrlonio power that has
excited wondsr and admiration, and defied
even carping criticism ever since she appeared
on the stags. Its dialogue is clever, and its
situations are as emotionally dramatic, as even
Miss Morris warmest friends could ask. It
would require more space than ran lie afforded
to sieak In detail of Miss Morris' work in this
piece, as it deserves. To do her justice it
would he necessary to analyie and commend
every bit of by play In the tint act that be
trayed her jealous tear of losing ber husband's
lovs. and hsr hypocritical attempt to convince
htr mother that no such fear lurked in her
heart. It would be necessary to applaud al
most every gesture and every intonation of the
voice that acoorapanled the lines leading up to
ths strikingly-dramatic situations In the see
ond act, when Kenee blackens ber own charac
ter to save the hitherto-unsullied name of ber
proud family. It would be necessary to re
member the fourth scene from beginning' to
snd In onler to describe faithfully and justly
Kenee a pathetic scene with her father, the tu
multuous vet touching scene with her husband.
and the fearfully beautiful scene with her
daughter. The magnificence of Miss Morris'
work In these instances can not be dwelt on
thev deserve to be: this criticism of it must
end with sn acknowledgement of inability to
do it justice in the space allotted. Buffalo Ex
