SHAKSPEARIAN FETE The admirers of our immortal Bard will again have an opportunity of evincing their taste at the ensuing Jubilee at Slralford-upon-Avoo, which, we understand, will very much exceed, in splendour, variety, and amusements, tha last, which gave so much delight three years since. The pro- cession, we ace given te understand, will consist of characters from the whole of Sbakspkare's acting play. . A Maer-aerade will take place on each of the three evenings, in a Pavilion fitted up for the occasion, precisely on themodelo. the one erected by Garrick. A public breakfast will be provided at the principal Hotel. A Concert and Ball will be given at Ihe Town Hail. The Theatre will also be open and firewerks exhibited on fhe Bancroft, where Garrick celebrated the Jubilee ot 1769. This will be rendered more peculiarly one of rejoicing, St. Qearge's Day being selected for the celebration. Numerous amusements are in progress, towards which Ihe Mayor and Corporation bave extended their patronage; and the Shak-pearian Club have, among other able persons, selected Mr. Raymond, the Manager of several provincial Theatres, as superintendent of the leading gaieties. The festivities will last three days.
