THE NEW ARCADIAN EXTRAVAGANZA AT THE

ADELPHI THEATRE.

In our Impression of the 15th ult., we gave some account of the "new and original Arcadian pastoral extravaganza" written by Mr. Henry Byron and entitled "Pan; or, The Loves of Echo and Narcissus," which has had great success at the Adelphi Theatre during the last three weeks.  We now present an illustration of one of the most effective scenes in which there is an apparition of the rustic deity, attended by a train of satyrs, to express his displeasure with the young people of the village because the fair Syrinx, whom Pan has condescended to love, is rather inclined to love Narcissus.  Mr. Toole is a most humorous representative of Pan, first disguised as a peasant among the crowd of mortals and afterwards in the grotesque majesty of his mythological character bearing a queer resemblance to the idol or statue of Pan, which is erected at one corner of the stage.
