SCENE FROM "LOST IN LONDON."

As an original drama, Mr. Watts Phillips's new play, entitled as above, deserves some distinction.  Whatever its faults, it is not derived from foreign sources and is intended to illustrate modern manners.  The last scene, of which we present an illustration, is designed to read a social lesson and to bring into contrast the man of worth and the man of wealth.  The latter, to use the words of the play, is only too ready "to poach on the poor man's manor," and is yet surprised if he be threatened with the poacher's punishment.  The poor miner, who has recovered his repentant wife, stands front to front with the mine owner and demands the redress of a fair duel with his wronger.  But the latter pleads his respectability and finally declines to meet the humble man on fair terms.  The injustice of this doctrine he is at last made to see and then acknowledges his fault.  Such is the scene presented, which, in the acting is effective, and brings down the curtain with applause on what the writer of the play designed to represent as a moral triumph.
